Farming  for the greater part of his time  iri: this valley, it was not until  1892 that he joined his sons in  business and thus set aside the  more active life that he had followed on the farm. Respected  and esteemed by all who know  him Mr. Carrington is regarded  as one of the landmarks of Nicola  valley and earns a large place in  the sphere alottad to those who  gave of .their time and substance  to lay the .foundation of this  thriving community and struggled in the midst .of many trial  vicissitudes to accomplish ;the  end;which today stands as a  nfotiument to their zeal and integrity.  Born at Nottingham, Eng., in  . 1838,-Mr. Carrington was brought  to America by his parents, when  a lad of ten summers. Three  years later he . lost- his father  and returned with his mother to  England, and remaining there for  five years.  On the return qi the. family to  ' New York At was agreed amongst  . themselves to go to* London,  Ontario, where ��they had a number of ^relatives and friends.

He came as  far asf Victoria via the Isthmus  of Panama and San Francisco.  It was in the month of April  "that^he landedHfrom a sailing  vessel oh the old Hudson Bay  wharf at Victoria. With but  twenty five cents in his pockets,  the appeasement of his hunger  liquidated his last resources and  he was left penniless to fight the  battle of life "in a new land and  in the midst of strangers.  But warm acquaintances were  soon to fall to his lot, and it was  in Victoria that he met the  Woodward family since amongst  the pioneers of Nicola valley,  aha* he also became a friend of  Joseph ..Blackbourne who for  many years conducted, the .pldl  hotel at .Quilchena.

Returning to Nicola in  '36 he took up the land now  known as<the Robert Clark'and  J.

EXPERIMENTAL ORCHARDS   --  The provincial government is  establishing experimental fruit  orchards throughout the province.  Three of them have already been  located at Vernon, Summerland  and Kelowna in the Okanagan  district and it is understood that  two more will be placed at Kamloops and Pennys,  The value of these experimental orchards to the fruit growing  industry  in this province cannot  be  overestimated.    It  will give  .to the industry that "which it has,  long required���a good agency to,  promote the experimental stages  of fruit" growing.    In   the past  the  financial -responsibility associated with this experimental  work has  been, largely borne by  x~tHe" individual "fruit growers and  has   proved,  .very   harassing in  many instances.  The -Nicola -Valley -Farmer's  Institute "is well within its jurisdiction when it asks the government-to place one or more of  these  orchards   in  this district.  The importance of the district  as well as its resourcefulness of  soil-and climatic conditions would  fully sustain. any argument that  might be advanced by this well  known. institution.  -   The institute^has gone a. little  further in the matter and   has  _. _ ���*        . -   - -\   - -'  agreed to provide the land and  other facilities and weunderstand  _J-U"_-x __.T ���   ill- ������4-  have-the-least-  difficulty in securing this  land.  . The government owes it to the  fruit industry as . well as to this  district to locate one or  more of  these orchards here and we trust  that the' officials at Victoria will  do their duty in this important  matter.  that have stood out as huge sentinels for centuries in that garden of natural splendor.  It must have been in a moment of temporary irresponsibility that the park commissioners  evolved, a policy that has since  led to the elimination- of several  of the largest and most attractive of the massive trees that  have so long been the idol of  \ those who seek the. beauty and  attractiveness of Stanley park.  They claim that the widening of  one of the driveways involved  the removal of these big trees  but far rather that Stanley park  be without a' driveway than that  these fine big trees be sacrificed.  It is understood that 68 trees  ranging from 18 to 30 inches in  diameter, two big firs 50 inches  in diameter and one massive  cedar 29 inches, in diameter have  fallen by the woodman's axe at  the instance of the park _ commissioners. v .  It is not alone the people of  Vancouver who take a pride, in  Stanley park for this pride is  shared by the people of British  Columbia. Stanley park has a  world wide reputation. It is regarded as one of the most beautiful-parks in the EWorld, and it'is  deplorable- that a body of irresponsible men would so. far forget themselves as to attempt to  rob it of its .beauty and Jre7  sources.       .   -   .'-��.:","  F. G. Wade is perfectly within  his jurisdiction .-when he asks  that the park commissioners re-,  sign and submit the issue to the  people-rin fact the park com:  missioners should be fair enough  to follow this course. . It is not  idle prediction to say that if they  did resign and appeal to the  electorate on this issue that there,  would be an entirely>new board  of park commissioners. AH  power to the local press and to  the hand of F. C. Wade in their  endeavor to stay this wanton destruction... __     _.'"'.  gained through a system of.edu- for   a "season of  unprecedented  cation such as^is represented in a  fall fair .where.the products of  every branch 6i social and industrial activity are placed for  public inspection and the experiences of one communicated to  another.  Now that the enterprise has  been undertaken we sincerely  hope that the good people of  Nicola valley .will' give it their  best support. No district in  British Columbia can offer greater  opportunities for a show of this  character and the tremendous  amount of organization and  clerical work involved in the  establishment and conduct of the  institution makes it imperative  that the directors receive every  sympathy and encouragement at  the hands of the general public.  :actiyity_ in railroad circles���and  what more hopeful sign would  any community require.  NOW FOR A   DAILY MAIL  STANLEY PARK  Those who know Stanley park  .in Vancouver, know its scenic  beauty and its wealth of nature,  will fully appreciate the justice  of the fight that the press of  . that city are waging against the.  park commissioners in an effort  to stay their hand and prevent  the further distruction of some  bf the monarchs   of the. forest  THE FALL FAIR  ��� It is now definitely decided  that Nicola Valley will have a  fail fair arid the dates have been  fixed for September 13 and 14.  The Farmers' Institute is deserving of the warmest commendation for the splendid spirit of enterprise that it has displayed in  connection with this important  enterprise.--w-. ,  Few can fully appreciate the  excellent educational features of  a well organized and properly  conducted exhibition. In agriculture, horticulture, mining,  live stock arid' .mechanical, and  household; arts there is ever a  splendid field for _ development  and" this   development   is   best  For weeks we^have urged the  importance of a daily train service  on. the local branch of the Canadian Pacific railway. , We have  even pressed the matter personally before some of the officials  of the road. The boards of trade  at Nicola" arid Merritt;have both  been active in. the matter and the'  result of it all is that the Nicola-  branch :will have the daily service  commencing on April 1st.   r  They tell us it is idle to kick  against a stone wall and some  were prone to think that nothing  could, be accomplished by urging  the matter with, the C. P. R.  But the old law of agitation and  its good results has served. us in  good stead arid we will soon have  what we have.sought so long and  which is so essential to the de-;  velopement of this district.-']}-   7  The post office- authorities pro-  mised to give us a daily majl-,as  soon as the d?,ily train was in-,  stalled so it devolves' upon the  department to .have this daily  mail service ready for installation  simultaneously .with .the ,daily  tram service.        ! v  The daily train .service will  mean more for Nicola Valley than  many of us anticipate. It will  mean the advent into this dis-  trictof many people who otherwise could not come "because. of  the loss of tims occasioned by'  the inadequate train service. It  will be an encouragemenc to investors to come and look over the  local situation., and jh .every: de-  partment it will'mean a splendid  stimulus to industrial, commercial and;social activity.  " We understand^that the material for the buildingxof-'.the?Kettle  Valley line from Merritt will be  brought xtp over the local branch  in the course,of a few weeks and  taken   altogether the outlook is  NICOLA TENNIS CLUB  At a meeting in Nicola Wednesday evening the Nicola Tennis club was formed.

We herewith publish the sesond installment of Mr. George Murray's reminiscent sketches. Last wee* Mr.  Murray told of the" circumstances surrounding his advent to NicMa valley  in '75 and cited many incidents of intense intere X t:> tho:e who a e famihir  with the pioneer days in" this district.  We feel assured that these articles  will give the best of satisfaction to our  raa lers.���E.l.  ��� -   ��  (Continued'from last week)  Iii the vicinity oi the Byron  ranch, including both sides of the  river, there appeared to D3 one  thousand acres or more of land  suitable for cultivation which inspired the hope that fairer fields  would yet be seen���a hope that  was not disappointed. /A- distance of about two miles brought  us to the home and the splendid  ranch of Mr. Harvey Woodward,  who recently sold out to Mr.  Greaner of Douglas Lake. A cordial welcome was given to the  visitors by both Mr. and Mrs.  Woodward,. . The writer was de-  * lighted to meet Mrs. Woodward  who was a native of Glasgow,  Scotland, where he had taken his  university course, and from  which " city - he "came to British  , .dplumbia. We were'"both quite  familiar with certain parts of the  city"=t some; of . the churches and  preachers���so there.,was something in common to talk about.  - Mr. Woodward was an intelligent farmer. His experience in  -Ontario and California enabled  him to appreciate the opportunities which soil and climate  "offered in British Columbia.  While Jiaving to bear, the disadvantages of early settlement,  the outlook to him was full of  promise. His forecastiof British  Columbia's future was~. bright.  Mr.   and Mrs.  Woodward,   who  ' were then ,bbthf young, have  brought up a large famiTy com-  _ prising five sons and six daugh  ters. Mrs. Woodward's-demise  took place nearly eight years  ago, leaving husband and family  to mourn the loss of their nearest and deaest, and a whole community to lament the passing  from their midst of one of the  earliest settlers, who was a  general favorite and greatly  esteemed.  Mr. Woodward with several of  his family, after disposing of  his property about a year ago,  removed to California, bought a  home there where his younger  children .will have excellent  educational facilities. Mr. Woodward ,was .a: close observer and  was probably the best versed  man in horticulture of any resident of the valley.     His zeal in  supporting everything which he  believed would tend to man's  chief good was commendable.  He was zaaloas in -the interests  of temperance and religion.  Not without regret can the rein yval of Nicola's first residents  to other parts be viewed, and  especially those who reared  families amid her valley, and  were regarded as the stable portion of her population. Conditions change, and those who  have toiled for many years amid,  the isolation ��� and privations of  new and remote situations, are  not, unlikely, if .circumstances  permit, to. betake' themselves  where advantages long denied  can be enjoyed. The change  does not-always work for. the.  best. It is, however, easy to  understand the causes that impel in that direction.    Y  Mr. Woodward and his family  carry with them the- best wishes  for their comfort' and happiness  in their new home. The Woodward settlement is one of con-  siderable extent and may afford  matter for " anotheri communir  cation.  (To be continued)  -o-  BOUQUET FOR MR. GRAY  The annual -report of the  Nicola Valley Coal & Coke, Co.  which came to hand a few days  ago contains some warm words  of appreciation ,for James Gray  the well known * superintendent  at Middlesboro mines. Here is-  what the report says and it speaks  for itself: "Mr. Gray, our superintendent, . has the . company's  interests fully at heart and has  succeeded in steadily reducing  our costs. Our tonnage has. increased steadily during /the Jasi  few riionths and the shipments  for:February to date, average  519 tons per working day. The  increased tonnage of which we  have promise in the year on.  which we have entered, should so  reduce our general charges in  proportion as to making our  mining with continued good  management, profitable."  NICKLE PLATE DIVIDEND  The Nickle Plate mine at Hed-  ley has declared a good dividend  last week. The * property was  taken over, by the Hedley Gold  Mining Co., last August and the  announcament of the dividend  comes from the head offices in  New York.

The celebration  will be held on May 24  and 25.  At a meeting of the association in the Diamond Vale stores  Tuesday evening the necessary  preliminary details were sue  cessfully disposed of and the  work of' organization undertaken.

Baseball,  football/field sports, horse races  and other cards will go to make  up the attractions.
