If the  large and representative meeting  can be accepted as a criterion  the day will assuredly be a suc-  ces. There was an abundance  of enthusiasm and the interest  was common to all classes of the  townspeople.  Horse races and field sports  with an automobile race as a  special feature will comprise the  programme. The Kamloops city  band has been engaged and arrangements are now under way  for a special train from Kamloops  catering to Savona, Ashcroft and  other mainline points as well and  serving the residents along the  local branch line through the  valley.  A. W. Strickland presided at  last night's meeting and the decision to celebrate was a unanimous one in every respect. Committees were appointed and the  preliminary organization work  well advanced, H. G. Lee was  selected as secretary a ballot  being necessary.  The subscription list which  was opened subsequent to the  meeting was liberally patronized  and the indications are that the  prize money will be largely in  excess of previous years. A special inducement will be held out  to people resident at Kamloops  and along the mainline to come  and the fact that there will be  dtHeT  MAN HURT AT MINES  David Brown, miner, received  injuries to the left hip and right  leg in No. 1 mine on Tuesday  which happily will not result  seriously. He was working in  one of the tunnels "and some of  the timber gave, way pinning  him down before he could get  free. After careful work by the  management and men he was  extricated but not until he had  been pinned down for three  hours. Dr. Tutill who attended  the injured man says that he will  be around again in a few days.

A NEW RECORD  A new record was scored at  Middlesboro mines on Tuesday  when   the   output  reached   the  magnificent total of 847 tons.  The nearest approach to this was  720 tons.  {     l     '     ��  Charles Lambert, well known  in mining circles, went back to  the coast last week but promises  to return shortly and resume  work on his.. claims near ~G:>;ani.te  creek. Mr. Lambert is most optimistic as to the future of Nicola  valley and should prove a good  publicity agent while abroad.  Speaking of the progress that  is being effected in his work at  Granite creeek the Princeton  Star of last week has the following:  A short   distance above  the  mouth of the Norrh Fork, on the  main Granite Creek, Messrs.   R.  A.    Lambert   and  Stewart are  doing the only   serious    placer  mining in the district.    The preliminary development has  been  carried on by five  men  for the  past three seasons, but the actual  sluicing=o��4.he=gravels=may=,only  commence in the coming season.  Lambert    and   Stewart have a  lease of 11-2 miles of the creek  bed   above   the   North   Fork, a  very small   part   of   which has  been  worked in  former times.  The gold recovered  from  these  portions was very course, though  the bed rock  was  only  reached  in one spot.    In  this  particular  portion, which was but 200  feet  in length the yield is said to have  been $1200 to the  length  of a  sluice box, where the gravels  in  the stream bed had a width  of  40 to 50 feet.   This yield included nuggets the gold  value was  from $100 to $150; the platinum,  however, was fine.    The remainder of the creek bed covered  by  the lease is deep ground,   and  could not be bottomed.    Lambert  and Stewart are now engaged in  cutting' down    the  bed of the  stream in the lower part of their  lease, in order to reach bed rock  and recover the gold and platinum lying upon it!,'    Commencing  at the lower end of their _ground  a dam   has   been    constructed  across the stream bed, while 600  feet of a board flume carries the  water over a portion of the channel which it is proposed to first  work.   The large boulders and  rock   in   the   lower part   were  blasted away, thus enabling the  removal by. ground sluicing of a  depth of about 25 feet of gravel,  which before formed the bed of  the stream. The depth of grave]  overlying the bed rock is now  but five feet, and the point has  been reached when the gravels  can be shovelled into the sluice  boxes. This, however, can only  be done after the season of high  water has passed. The returns  should show a proportion of about  four parts of gold to one of platinum,  and should   amply   repay  the cost of the preparatory work.   -o .

MERRITT BOARD OF TRADE  Important Business   Transacted  at   Last  Night's Meeting  There was a iai'ge attendance at the  general meeting of the Merritt Board  of Trade held in the parlors of the  Coldwater Hotel last evening. President Armstrong was in the chair.  After dealing with a few minor matters the Board took up the more important questions such as the appointment of a committee to look after the  exhibit which Merritt will send to the  Spokane Fruit Fair, and the following  committee was appointed: Messrs.  Bailey, Mclntyre and Ransom.    .  President Armstrong who left for the  Coast this (Friday) morning will interview the Government in regard to sidewalks for the different streets.  A protest was read from J. Garcia  regarding the opening of Gody creek  road, he claiming that it wouid injure  his pasture land, etc.'" This was strongly opposed,"and a motion was earned  unanimously that the secretary petition  the Government to have this road carried out, it being to the interest of the  public in general as well as the town of  Merritt. and in fact improve the value  of the land from which the protest was  received. The Government no doubt  would see the matter in the same light  and start work- at an early date.  The matter of planting shade trees  was also discussed and will be brought  before the property holders at an early  date.  The executive was instructed to try  and find - permanent - quarters, for thc  general meetings.    ������ -  Diamond   Vale Has   Resumed    Work  ���Nicola Valley Coal and Coke Co.  Plans Enlargement.  CANADIAN NORTHERN  The first sixty miles of the  Canadian Northern railway in  British Columbia will be completed by June 1, 1911. The  company will work from the  coast end, starting from the end  of the Fraser river bridge opposite New Westminster following  the river to Langley, thence  across country to Whonnock, on  to Matsqui, to Sumas and on  around the mountain, to Chilli-  wack. It will have connection  with the Great Northern, V. V. &  E. and B.C.E. Ry. Tenders for  the work are now being called.  Pacific   Coast Collieries Co.  Have Received Part of  Their Plant  . i-"V.  Kettle Valley's Chief Engineer  Has Been Looking Over Line  Immediate Construction Now Looked For���Company Must  Start Work Before July First.  Indians Barred  From Killing Deer  Provincial    Government   Issues  Instructions to the Local  Magistrate.  Hugh D. Lumsden, chief engineer of the Kettle Valley railway has been thronghthis district  during the past few days surveying the proposed route of the new  line. He came overland from  Penticton by pack train reaching  Aspen Grove Tuesday night  After making certain local sur-  y_eys_=he^came=on=into=Merritt=  Wednesday afternoon he drov e  up the Coldwater for several miles  inspecting the route and returning the same night went to Nicola  where he made further surveys.  I have nothing definite to give"  he said in reply to a query. ' 'I am  only looking over the route for  the purpose of locating the line.  It was gathered that construction  work would start some time during the present month, however,  and the crews will work out of  Merritt and Penticton as well as  Midway.  "There is some pretty stiff rock  work between Merritt and Penticton," declared the engineer  "but for the most part the route  is an easy one to handle." Mr.  Lumsden and his party have been  out on the hills for ten days.  Leaving Nicola he went on to the  coast where he will submit his reports.  The engineer is quite favorably impressed with the Cold-  water route and jregards it as  most feasible. Mr. Lumsden  will be remembered as the man  who resigned from the engineering staff of the Grand Trunk  Pacific railway after making certain charges of over classification.  Advices that have come to  hand during the past few days  go to show that the Kettle Valley railway will undertake construction from Merri$t> early in  July. A rumor was promulgated last week to the effect that  the company had secured an extension of time for their agreement with the government but  this has received an absolute  denial in government circles.  Tenders have been in the  hands of the president of the  company rJv=J^=Warren rfor=some=  time past having been closed as  far back as April 15th but no  contracts have yet been awarded.  Mr. Warren has been at Penticton for some days and will go  on to the coast this week and a  definite announcement of policy  is expected as soon as he reaches  Victoria.  It is imperative that the construction must start by July 15th  for the 250 miles of the road between Midway and Nicola for by  its agreement with the government the company undertook to  start work within four months  of the date of the passage of the  of the bill of ratification and in  the event of an infraction of the  ��� Indians are not allowed to kill  deer'and in the event of an infraction of, this .law they are  brought "under the penalty in  common with white men. This  edict was issued from the Attorney General's department at  Victoria late last week at the  instance of certain local parties.  Last Friday William McNeill  was responsible for the summons  of an Indian on the ground of  killing deer. The case was tried  before Dr. G. H. Tutill, J. P. at  Merritt and the action was dismissed. The defence set up by  the prisoner was that the Indians  had received a special permit  from Ottawa to kill deer for food.  This permit was apparently obtained through William McDoug-  allTsuperintendentof thelndiansr  Not satisfied Mr. McNeill communicated with Victoria with  the result that the Attorney  General has instructed all local  Justices of the Peace that Indians  must be punished in common  with white men. A permit from  Ottawa cannot be accepted as a  defence. Mr. McNeill is to be  commended upon the splendid  spirit of industry he has evinced  in this important matter for in  this way he has furnished tangible evidence of his determination to secure the better protection of game throughout this  district. It is not unlikely that  the chief game warden, Bryon  Williams, will visit this locality  soon and one of his first  duties  y\  ft  _*,  agreement there was a penalty  clause involving the forfeiture of I ^Tlibe to appoint a game warden  $250,000 to the province.    This)  agreement was ratified   at the  last session of the provincial  house and it entailed the granting of a subsidy of $750,000 towards the cost of construction.  The bill was assented to on March  10 so that the four months' limit  expires on July 10.  As announced in the columns  of this paper three weeks ago  the company was also successful  in securing the federal subsidy  of $6400 per mile for the entire  mileage and this with the $5000  provincial subsidy for 150 miles  makes an average subsidy of  $9400 for the "entire $50* miles.  DIAMOND VALE RESUMES  WORK  The Diamond Vale Collieries  Co. has resumed work at No. 3  mine. A staff of men is now  engaged in taking out coal for  shipment and in line with the  announcement of a few weeks  ago the company proposes to  shortly operate on an extensive  scale. While the policy has not  yet assumed definite form it is  understood that it is of a far  reaching character.  Today being the  King'' George V.  schools are closed.

Early Days in Nicola Valley  By George   Murray,  Nicola.   ���~-  Once more we are in a position to! good  present to our readers the popular ser- '  ial from the pen of George Murray and  dealing with early days in Nicola. Mr.  Murray has been unable to write for  several weeks owing to illness and absence from home but now we are in a  position to give every assurance that  the interesting story will bc continued  from week to week.���Ed.  Edwin Dalley's admirable contribution to the history of early  settlement in Nicola, being replete with dates and results of  personal observation makes it  unnecessary for me to enlarge as  I   otherwise   might. Among  others located in the vicinity of  Nicola, there were Mr. and Mrs.  Thomas- Carrington with their  young family - settled on ��� the  ranch now owned by Mr. Claude  Broadbent, his son-in-law. The  location possesses singular beauty,  affording a pleasing variety of  mountain, valley and lake. It is  one of natures fascinating products. After a short residence  in Nicola Mr. Carrington returned to Victoria again to engage in  mercantile pursuits. While  methodical and exact in whatever he undertakes, it is not to  I be wondered at that he should  give up ranching for the store.  His ability as a salesman is of a  high order. Considerations of  higher importance than mere  gain led him again to return to  the genial climate of Nicola.  Had he continued business in  Victoria he would no doubt have  been one of that city's successful  merchants.  In 1875 the chief portion of  the townsite of Nicola was unoccupied land. Not being considered desirable for tillage nor  for pasturage, it was passed over  by the land seeker. Now the  problem is to get land for the  would be settler. At that time  the effort was to get settlers for  the land. The Interior of B.C.  has undergone a great change  when comparison is instituted  between conditions in the time  of which we write and those prevailing today���and these are but  the prelude to speedier and more  wonderful transformations now  in progress. As the teming  multitudes of Canada's far  reaching prairies arrives its  wealth , from one of the  world' s ri chest an d greatest grai n  belts, their trend will be towards  the sunny slopes of our fair  province already winning wide  distinction for its resources rich  and varied and climate unequalled in the vast confines of our  Dominion's magnificenrheritageT  With the Nicola townsite as  with many other, portions of the  dry belt an adequate water supply will give satisfactory results  in garden products. The situation has many attractive features.  Drainage facilities and a water  supply of the purest are all that  can be desired. The day is not  far distant when the advantages  which Nicola valley offers as a  health resort will be fully appreciated. The climate is ex-  hiliarating and invigorating.  The atmosphere seems surcharged with ozone. The prevalence  of sunny days and cloudless skies  cannot but exercise a cheerful  influence over residents of this  upland/valley. Now that the C.  P. R., Canada's first and greatest  transcontinental has provided  speedy transportation and the  Great Northern is also heading  for Nicola and promises to shorten the distance to the coast by  forty miles, Nicola's future is  assured.  Proceeding further up the val-'  ley the next ranch reached was  that of the late John Gilmore who  with three bright young daughters came to an, untimely end  having perished in the fire that  consumed their home. When  we made the acquaintance of  John Gilmore he was a large  hearted, genial man with many.  qnalities, but of such a  temperament that made it exceedingly dangerous for him to  tamper with the intoxicating cup  which in the end wrought his  ruin. In the eai*ly history of the  valley he was one of those that  would have been singled out as  most likely to have led in the  race for property. But the alcoholic demon proved his bane-  destroyed his home���his life���  and three children. It would be  more congenial to pass over the  awful tragedy in silence. Perhaps its recital may serve as a  warning to others who think  there is no danger in the drink  habit. ^ 1 freely admit that use  and not abuse is the highest  morality. But who is prepared  to define the limit of use, or to  determine . when that limit is  passed. Whence the roll of inebriates? From those who considered that they could use and  not abuse. The friends of temperance and the advocates of  prohibition are. told in indignant  and lofty tones that man cannot  be made moral by legislation.  No. But temptation can be lessened by legislation and as temptation is removed evil is lessened  and that is true of intemperance  as of other vices. Legislation  that aims at making it hard for  men to do wrong and easier to  do right can be considered safe  and desirable however loudly denounced.  GEORGE MUNRO RETIRES  C. P. R. Will Lose Best Roadmaster the  Company Ever Had.  George ��� Munro, ��� for so many  years roadmaster on the local  division of the Canadian Pacific  railway has been superanuated  though he will not retire from  active service for a couple of  months.,  ' For ' forty ..seven years Mr.  Munro has been railroading and  a greater part of-that time has  been with the C. P. R. He came  out here in the early days of  construction and substantial promotion has been the result of his  ability and labor. As roadmaster  for the" Thompson division he has  given eminent satisfaction and  his removal will mean an almost  irreparable loss. Sixty five years  of age Mr. Munro is still active  but feels that he is entitled to  the rest that he has so well earned. Just who his successor will  be is not definitely known though  it is not unlikely that Chas. Faw-  cett, asst. roadmaster will get the  appointment. Mr. Munro's home  has always been in Kamloops he  being one of the earliest residents  of that town. - Mr. Fawcett lives  at North Bend.

PROTECTION OF GAME  It is gratifying to'Hcnow that  . the attorney general's department at Victoria has undertaken  to secure better protection for  the game throughout this district.  If all the stories that have come  to hand are true, and we have  reason to believe that they are,  there has been a wanton destruction of game throughout the  hills surrounding the Nicola  valley. The absence of a game  warden may have something to  do with this but on the other  hand the action of the superintendent of Indians in granting  permits to, the Indians to kill  deer has also had its ill effects.  i Ottawa has no right whatever  to issue permits for the killing of  deer because that matter comes  solely under the jurisdiction of  the authorities at Victoria. Indians cannot kill deer, in fact  the conditions governing them  are in common with the conditions governing white men. Our  game is none too plentiful at  present and unless we do secure  some means of protecting it the  supply will rapidly be depleted.  One of the best agencies for' securing this -protection would be  to oppoint a good active game  warden and we have reason to  believe that the government will  make, this appointment very  shortly.  THE KETTLE VALLEY  It is imperative.that the Kettle  Valley railway must commence  . construction no later than July  10, according to the text of .the  agreement made between the  government of the province and  the company.  , There has been considerable  uncertainty as to the movements  of the company for, some time  past but the presence of J. J.  Warren, head of the company,  in the province is reassuring.  Mr. Warren has the tenders in  his hands and the awarding of  contracts will likely be announced  in a few days. It is. improbable  that the government would grant  -anextension=of=time=even=i_f"the  company did make such a request  for the government must hold  faith with the people of the  province. The advent of construction days for Merritt will  mean a wonderful stimulus to  all branches of industry and the  unprecedented prosperty of the  past few months is a harbinger  of this new era.  FOR INCORPORATION  It is now in order that the citizens of Merritt should again  take up the matter of incorporation. The season is well advanced and it is essential that  we should have the necessary  detail work successfully disposed  of so as to undertake the duties  of an incorporated city by the  first of next year.  There are many problems confronting the citizens of Merritt  at \ the present time, problems  that cannot be successfully solved  until we secure incorporation.  We need fire protection and we  require a water works service.  A private company is undertaking the installation of an electric  lighting system.  If the town was incorporated  these problems would be immed-  ately municipalized and in that  form they are much more easily  "handled. The townsite lots have  been disposed of in their entirety  and with many small property  owners, as well as the larger ones,  it is possible to secure the necessary scope for cementing together the scattered interests  and placing all on one common  footing of citizenship.  The government is prepared  to grant the necessary assistance.  Of that we have every assurance.  It is now up to the citizens to  undertake the preliminary work  and we feel confident that the  movement will receive cordial  support in all circles. If nothing  else would induce us to incorporate the fact that construction  days for the Kettle Valley railway are at hand should be sufficient stimulus. With construction days it will be almost impossible to meet developing conditions unless we can present  one united body of people such  as is found under the system of  incorporation. .  The decision of the good citizens of Nicola to celebrate Dominion day should occasion general satisfaction throughout the  valley. It is with pride and a  feeling of intense patriotism that  we turn from year to year to a  commemoration of our natal day.  It is a day that we as Canadians  delight to honor and. the people  of Nicola valley should join in  doing it honor in a manner that  will bespeak a whole hearted  loyalty and sympathy.

Perhaps, after all.  there was where their hope lay. Why  had she not told her father at; once?  It. might have relieved his mind. John  Burkett Ryder, the Colossus, the man  of unlimited power! He could save  her father, and he would. And the  more she thought about it the more  cheerful and more hopeful she became,  and she started to dress quickly, so  that she. might hurry down to tell her  father the good news. She was actually sorry now that she had said so many  hard things of Mr. Ryder in her book,  and she was worrying over the though!  that her father's case might be seriously prejudiced if the; identity.;of_;the  author were ever revealed, when there  came a knock at her door. It was  Eudoxia.  "Please, miss, will you come' down  to lunch?" .-  CHAPTER VIII.

This "deserted  village in the very heart of the big  town is the millionaires* district, the  boundaries of which are marked by  Carnegie hill on the north. Fiftieth  street on the;south, and by Fifth and  Madison avenues respectively on the  west and east. There is nothing more  mournful than the outward aspect of  these princely residences which., abandoned and empty for three-quarters of  the year, stand in stately loneliness, as  If ashamed of their isolation and utter  uselessness. Their blinds drawn, affording no 'hint of life within, enveloped the greater part of the. time in  the stillness and silence of the tomb,  they; appear to be under the spell of  some baneful curse. No merry voiced  childreu romp in their carefully, railed,  off gardens, no sounds of conversation  vt laughter come from their hermetic--  ally closed windows, not a soul goe3  in or out:.at most, at rare intervals,  does one catch a glimpse of a gorgeously arrayed servant gliding about in  ghostly fashion, supercilious and suspi-  t'iou^^aTrd==aydressing=the'chanee=vifitor=  in awed whispers as fliougb he were  the guardian of a house of affliction.  It to, indeed, like a city of the dead.  So it appeared to Jefferson as he  walked up Fifth avenue, bound for the  Ryder residence, the day following his  arrival from Kurope. Although he still  lived at his father's bouse, for at no  time had there been an open rupture,  he often slept in his studio, finding It  more convenient for his work, and  there he had gone straight from the  ship, fie felt, however, that it was his  duty to see his mother as soon as pos-  sihle; besides he was anxious to fulfill  his promise to Shirley and find what  his father could do to help Judge Rossmore. He had talked about the case  with several men the previous evening  at the club, and the general impression  seemed to be that, guilty or innocent,  the judge would be driven off the  bench.  Europe, thought Jefferson as ho  strode quickly along, pointed with envy to America's unparalleled prosperity, spoke with bated breath of her  great fortunes. Rather should they  say her gigantic robberies, her colossal  frauds! As a ' nation' we were not  proud, of our multimillionaires. How  many of them would bear "the..searchlight of investigation? Woiuldhis bw'ii  father % i How v many 'millions,- could .ono  man make by1 honest methods? America was- enjoying unprecedented .'prosperity not because of her millionaires,  but in spite of them. The United  States owed its high rank iu the family'  of nation's to the country's .vast natural  resources, its inexhaustible vitality, its  great wheatfields, the industrial and  mechanical genius of ,its people. It  was the plain American citizen who  had made the greatness of America:,  not the millionaires who, forming a  class by themsel es of unscrupulous  capitalists, had created an arrogant  oligarchy which sought rto! rule the  country by corrupting the legislatur-'  and the judiciary. The-plutocrats  these were the leeches, the sores In thc  body  oolltii..    An  oEKanlsed band  of'  robbers,  Nicy, had   succeeded  In .dominating legislation and iu souring control of every branch of the nation's industry.   ci/u.-.hiiig  mercilessly,  and   illegally all competition!  ��� ;!'  Jefferson''.turned   abruptly and   went  ;; up the wide.steps of an imposing white  : marble edifice which', took up the space  of half a city  block.    A line example  fof    French    renaissance    architecture,  ��� :.\yith  'spire..; roofs,   round   turrets   and  . mullioned     windows    dominating    the  '"neighboring . houses;.-, this . niaguificeut  _ home   of   the  plutocrat,   with   its  fur-  ;. uishing_.   and   art   treasures,   had   cost  ; .Tohu Burkett Ryder nearly .$10,000,000.  '.It  was one of the show places of llie  .towni    and    when    the    "rubberneck"  ./wagDiis   approached   the   Ryder   man-  'sion and the guides through,their meg-  ;. aphones    expatiated    in    awestrickeu  ���tones on its external and hidden beau-  f-ties,' there  was  a  general  crauing of  vertebrae    among   the    "seeing   New  Yorkers"^ to  catch  a   glimpse   of  the  abode of the richest man in the world.  Only a few privileged, ones were ever  permitted to penetrate'to the interior  of this $10,000,000  home.   ; Ryder  was  not   fond   of   company;   he   avoided  strangers and lived in continual apprehension of the : subpoena ��� server.   Not  that he feared the law, only he usually  found it inconvenient to answer questions in court under oath!   The explicit"  instructions to the servants, therefore,  were to admit no one under auy pretext whatever unless  the visitor  had  ;beeri   approved   by. -the   Hon.- Fitzroy  Bagley,   Mr.   Ryder's   aristocratic  private  secretary,"  and  to  facilitate  this  preliminary inspection there had been  installed  between the library upstairs  ;and the front door one of those ingenious electric  writing devices,  such  as  ���are.used in banks, on which a name is  hastily scribbled.^ instantly transmitted  elsewhere,  immediately answered and  the   visitor; promptly   admitted   or   as  tquickly showii. the door. \-jy,  Jefferson did not have to ring at the  paternal   portal.    The   sentinel   within  vwas at his post.  No one could approach  that door without being. seen and his  arrivarhikl appearance being signaled  jupstairs.  > But ;the   great   man's   son  headed the list of the privileged ones,  :so   without   ado   the   smartly   dressed  ������'���flunkey   opened   wide  the  doors,   and  Jefferson was under his father's roof.  ;    "is my father in?" he demanded of  tthe3man.;    _     V-'....'.. ���"������-���"  ���_   .'.'No,,sir,'.' was the respectful answer.  ."Mr! Ryder has gone out driving, but  Mr. Bagley Is upstairs."   Then after a  _ brief pause he added, "Mrs. Ryder is  :iU   tOO." '.,V...,..;^_,   :.,'.-..������.���;��� >  Jefferson went up the grand staircase  ; hung on either side with fine old portraits and rare tapestries, his feet sink-  : ing deep in the rich.,velvet carpet   On  .the first landing'was a piece of sculp-  ' tured   marble,  of; inestimable   worth,  'seen in the soft warm light that sifted  through a great pictorial/stained glass  : window. overhead,   the . subject  representing, Ajax and; Ulysses contending  for the armor of Achilles.   To the left  i of this,' at the top  of another  flight  leading to the library, was hung a flue  full   length   portrait  of  John   Burkett  Ryder.    The   ceilings  here   as  in  the  lower hall were richly gilt and adorned  "witb~paintings=by=fa____ous~modern-art--  Is.ts.   When he reached this floor Jefferson was about to turn to the right  and proceed direct to his mother's suit  when he heard a voice near the library  door.    It was   Mr.   Bagley   giving  instructions to the butler.  The Hon. Fitzroy. Bagley, a younger  son of a British peer, had Jeft his  country for his country's good, and in  order -to turn an honest, penny, which  lie had never succeeded in doing at  home, he had entered the service of  America's- foremost financier, hoping  to gather a Tew of the crumbs that fell  from the rich man's table and disguising the menial nnture of his position  under the high sounding title of private secretary. His job called for a  spy and a toady, and he filled these requirements ndmlntbly. Excepting with  his employer, of i whom he stood In  *xaven fear, his manner, was condescendingly patronizing to all with  whom he came In contact, as if he were  anxious to impress on these American  plebeians the signal honor which a  Fitzroy, son of a British peer, did  them in deigning to remain in their  "blarsted" country. In Mr. Ryder's  absence, therefore, he ran the house  to suit himself, bullying the servants  and riot infrequently issuing orders  that were contradictory to those already given by Mrs. Ryder.  Jefferson could not bear the sight of  him.;, In .fact,,..It vwasvthisv,man's continual presence^ In the house that had  ' driven him" to' seek refuge elsewhere.  He believed him to be a scoundrel as  tie certainly was, a" cad. Nor was his  estimate of the English secretary far  wrong. The man, like his master, was  a grafter, and the particular graft he  was after, now was either to make a  marriage with a rich American girl or  to so compromise her that the same eud  would be attained. He was shrewd  enough to realize that he had little  chance to get what he wanted in the  open matrimonial market, so he determined to. attempt a raid and carry off  an heiress under her father's nose, and  tth/a particular nrohooeia be bad select-  ed  was thai  of Ids employer's  rnenci.  Senator    Huberts.      The   senator - and  Miss   Roberts   were   frequently  at   the  Ryder house, and in course of time the  aristocratic   secretary   and   the  daughter   had    become   quite   intimate       A  flighty  girl,  with   no  other  purpose  in  life beyond dress and amusement and  having what she termed "a good time."  Kate  thought   it  excellent  pa-itiiue  to  flirt   with   Mr.   Bagley," and   when   she  discovered   that lie was serious in  his  attentions she felt flattered rather than  indignant.     Alter  all,   she  argued,   he  was of noble birth.    If his two broth  ers died, he would be peer of England  and she had  enough money  for  both  He  might   not   make  a   bad   husband  But she was careful to keep her own  counsel   and   not   let   her  father   have  any  suspicion of what was going on  She ���knew-,that .his'heart; was. set on  her marrying Jefferson Ryder, and silo  knew better than any one how impossible that dream was.f She herself liked  Jefferson  quite enough to marry  him.  but if his eyes were turned in another  direction���and she knew all about hi:  attentions to  Miss Rossmore���she 'w-a;-  not going to break her heart about It  So she continued to flirt secretly  wit';  the Hon. Fitzroy while she -still led the  Ryders  and   her  owu   father  to  think  that she was interested in Jefferson.  "Jorkins." Mr. Bagley was saving to  the butler. "Mr. Ryder will occupy f.ie  library on his return. See that he i'  not disturbed."  "Very good, sir." The butler bowed  and went downstairs. The seeretar;  looked up and saw Jefferson. His late  reddened, and his manner grew nervous.  "Hello!     Back'1 rom   liurone.   .k <   "  son?   ITow jolly!    Your motile'- " .'  delighted.

Mosquitoes are very plentiful  in this neighborhood at present  but they have been here before.  Some of the cattle throughout  this district are afflicted with  blackleg and determined efforts  are being put forth to stamp out  the disease. All the calves are  .being vaccinated as well.  F. W.

OUR NEW CAR  SAVONA  The Victoria day celebration  here was a great success and  there was a lai'ge attendance,  special trains bringing the people  from Ashcroft, Pennie's and  Kamloops while there was also  an excursion from Kamloops by  steamer. The only thing to mar  the day's festivities was the late  arrival of the Ashcroft train  which considerably delayed the  events.  Kamloops had a lucky streak,  winning the' football match from  Ashcroft and the baseball game  .from Savona. Mr. Loring of  Ashcroft was one of the principal winners in the horse races.  In the 100 yards foot race R. F.  Leighton was first, Matthew  Murray of Kamloops being  second while in the 220 yards the  positions were reversed. A  dance in the town hall brought  the day's proceedings to a close.  W. Salsbury who was a visitor  to Savona has returned to Vancouver.  An Indian .was arrested by  Constable Jago after the sports  on a charge of drunkeness. He  was sent to gaol for a month by  the local justices. .  Wilfred Ferguson was a visitor  to Kamloops last week.  F. and W. Wright were in town  from Eight Mile Creek last week.  W. Quinville and Francis La  France of Mammette Lake were  visitors to town for the sports  last week.  Editor Dancey is the Proud Possessor of  a 1910 Model Reo.  R. C. Thomas, representing  the Vancouver Auto and Cycle  Co., the largest automobile firm-  in British Columbia, reached  Merritt Wednesday night with  one of the 1910 Reo cars for S.  N. Dancey, editor of the Nicola  Valley News.  The company which Mr. Thomas represents is the distributing  agency for British Columbia for  the Oldsmobile, Reo, Ford and  White cars, four of the most  prominent and successful products on the market. .  Mr. Dancey has accepted the  sub agency for the company for  Nicola valley and Princeton and  proposes to promote the sale of  the cars through this district as  conditions will permit.  The Reo car which Mr. Thomas  brought with him is a fine specimen of the best workmanship as  represented in a moderate priced  car. It-has 30 horse power, is  light in weight, attractive in design and appearance and should  be a good seller for the local  field. In the other lines that will  be handled the well known character of the Olds, White and Ford  should be sufficient inducement  to a man who is contemplating  the purchase of the latest, approved form of. transportation.  There is no part of British Columbia that offers better conditions for motoring than does  the Nicola valley. - Good roads,  long distances and other tributary  conditions make it almost imperative that the business man as  well as the rancher should have a  quick and safe means of getting  around the district.
