List of Prize Winners   at Wednesday's Exhibition.  The third annual fall fair���the  date - Wednesday, September,  25th���has come and gone, and  now for the fourth.     ^  Wednesday's exhibition was  good and the advertising value  of the exhibition of agricultural  and Horticultural products shown  there, cannot be well over-estimated.  The exhibits in all lines were  possibly not quite up to the previous exhibition especially in the  art, fancy work and domestic  science division. In all the ether  divisions good representation  was made and especially so in  the fruit "exhibit.  In this section Mr. Manningof  Dot, did great credit to himself  and his exhibit of apples was a  big advertisement for the valley.  Among the varieties shown by  Mr,:'Manning were the Wealthy,  Ben: Davies, Mcintosh Red, Golden Russett. Blue Pearmain,  and the. Seed Manning. The  showing of this exhibit being  conclusive evidence that ;the  growing of fruits can successfully and profitably be carried on in  the valley.  Mr. Woodward of Lower Nicola had a very fine exhibit of-apples as well as Thos. Curnow  of Spence's Bridge whose assortment and the largeness of the  fruit was truly' great. Then again  from am ther district from the  ranch of* M. Olren un the Coldwater was a nice exhibit.  The fall fair offers a splendid  opportunity to advertise the possibilities of any.vicinity for the  fruit rairer, the .'vsmal farmer,"  the'dairyman as well as' the  stockman.  . .The day was perfect and the  attendance was good considering  the threatening weather of the  evening previous.  The Ladies Aid of the .Presby  terian church served refreshments throughout the day and  their booth proved to be both  popular with the crowd as well  profitable to the ladies,  The ladies of the Hospital  Auxiliary pinned the Red Cross  Badge on everyone, and the contributions to this worthy fund  run well up in the three figure  column.  The Merritt Band furnished  music throughout the day and  the large attendance at ; the  dance given under the auspices  of the band in Central Hall the  same evening was conclusive  evidence that their efforts of  the day were appreciated by the  large attendance.  Below we give a list of the  prize winners :  Special Prize Li*t.   .,  N. V. News, for the best year old  roadster. 1st, A. W.

P. for  Yale riding came in on Wednesday evening's train and yester.  day morning accompanied by  government road superintendent  D. G. Sutherland was driv< n >ver  this part of his cbnstituei cy, on  a trip of inspection of all road  work now being carried out b>  the government., ���  As was stated in those col im> f  two weeks ago, Mr. Lucas at thc  last session of the legislature was  able to stcure and did secute  more money to be spent'on public works in this constituent}'  and parlicularly Ik-re in the Nicola Valley, than any other men -  ber in the present house.        .  i  The appropriations granted fo ���  Yale district this year w<-iv $90, -  1st, OpO, exclusive-of all bridge ex  penditurcs and as there wks  some $20,000 over from last  year's estimates, there was available for this years work $ 10,-  000. There are now four d ffer-  eht-crews working on the roads  close to the city limits.  . Mr. Lucas regretted very much  that he did not make closer connections so that he-would have  arrived here one day earlier arid  so have been able to attend tlie  fall exhibition.  of Australia and  western states of America. And  v*r. Lucas earnestly advises the  farmers of British Columbia to  adopt the same policy so that  profits from the land may be  made not only by subdividing  and reselling, which cannot continue indefinately, but from the  returns from the sale of . produce.  Visits District  Mr. and Mrs   Doting,   of Vancouver,   came  into  the  city  on  Wednesday    evening    and     on  Thursday  morning  were   taken  ap   to   the  ranch  of  Mr.  Cbas.  Loewen, familiarly known as the  Lazy   L   ranch    on   eight   mile  creek, where  they   will spend a  tew  days.

'  (Continued on page three,)  Mr.   Lucas    is    already   well  known   to   the   farmers  of  all  parts of the province   through  his advocacy of a system of government loans to settlers for long  terms "and "at low rates of interest.   ,,The. advice   tendered   by  Mr. Lucas to the farmers of  B.  C.   is not new indeed, but one  which' the'sffarmers   of   British  Columbia seem very slow to deal  with namely, co-operation, in the  marketing of their products.    In  answer to a question re the loan  system he is advocating Mr. Lu-  Opens Middlesboro Boarding House  Mr.   H.   Hurtubis,    of    Vancouver, has leased   the  Middlesboro  Boarding  House   and  has  been.busy the past  week having I  it -renovated throughout.    It is \  is now open for business and Mr.  Hurtubis, as' his announcement  in another column states will be  pleased to welcome all  the old  patrons of this house   and   as  many new ones  that first-class  board and room has any attraction.     Mr.   Hurtubis   some   two  years  ago had   charge   of  this  house,   so  that  to  many of the  old-time    miners   he   is   not   a  stranger.  The contract for the construction of about forty-two miles of  railway between Coalmont and  CoqualiMlla summit"'was let by  the V. V. &E. Railway Company  which is one of thp tit If s of tho  Great. Northern in Briiish Columbia, to Guthrie, McDougall &  Company. The work, according  to the terms of t he com frict, must  he completed by July 1, 1913.  The contractors will get their  men and equipment on the work  in the next few days or as soon  thereafter as is possible.  With this strip of railroad completed by July 1, 1913.. the early  completion of the-remainder of  the strip from Coquahalla summit into Hope is predicted. The  latter piece of road is that which  both the Great Notthern and fhe  Kettle Valley lines wisii to build  and which the railway commission now has before it-for consideration. Until the Railway  way Commissii.ne. s act the completion of the line from.the summit to hope is a matter of conjecture.  It is probable that with the decision of the Railway Commission  will come the announcement  from the C. P. R. as,to where,  the bridge across the Eraser,  connecting the main line of the  C. P. R. and the Kettle Valley  line will be built: '.There are  two sites in mind now one- at  Hope and the oihir-dsu Ruby  Creek. In the estimation of ihe  engineers who are familiar with  the country in that vicinity Hope  is the logical pubit.iun' for the  bridge. -"���"- -   ~.     ;  The -amount' (if-the" contract"  just clostd by Guthrie AleDuugiUl'  & Co., is said" to   be   about '$1.-'"  500, CC0.       . -   ���' ��� ;'  A representative of the  above  named   contractu!s_ \\as_in Merritt  the  first  of  the  week arid  on Tuesday went up to_ the summit.

Thompson.  ;���: V iVicar.  eas saidT ' "       7 ~  "The province is covered with  local Farmers' institutes and  Fruit Growers' Associations affiliated through provincial boards,  and these accomplish valuable  educational work, but they do  not afford," nor even seem to lead  to, any means for effective cooperation. That while manufacturers, wholesale and retail traders, and even manual laborers,  skilled and unskilled, fix the prices of their respective commodities, the farmer alone places his  product on the market and allows  the buyer to name the price."  As in connection with the loan  system he is advocating, Mr. Lu-  ���cas points to the example of  Denmark,' whose' agriculturists  lead-the world in so many respects: : There the farmers are  organizedJinto what is practically  a trust; Nothing is lef t to chance  or individual fancy in the matter of varieties or quantities produced or in the price asked. As  'a consequence, the farmers of  Denmark are as a class more  prosperous than those of any  other country.  : The example of Denmark has  been followed to some extent by  New Zealand, some of "the states  Yukon Potato Crop  Dawson, Y,- T.

The  Klondike district alone, it is estimated, will produce about 300  tons, which is valued here at  $30,000.  Mrs. A. F. Rankine and  daughter Miss Jean, returned  home on Saturday evening from  a three months visit with relatives at her old home in New  Brunswick. Mrs. Rankine had  a most enjoyable trip both going  and coming with the exception  of the last day on the road when  she was unfortunate enough to  have a small piece of cinder  lodge' in her right eye which  caused her great pain for a number of hours before she could get  medical attendance.  Mr. and Mrs. P. Lepitre, owners of the Sunshine Theatre here,  last week received the sad news  of the death of Mr. Lepitre's  sister Orpha, wife of Mr. Henri  Clermont, which occured in  Montreal on August 19th, 1912.  Mrs. Clermont at the time of  her death was 55 years of age.  The local order of thc Knights  of. Pythias  have  made1" all   arrangements to hold a social evening in their lodge  room in the  Reid block once each month. The  last   meeting   night    in    every  month will be the night on which  a programme,  prepared   by the  members during the  month, to-  gejhe.r_\v_iih_a_lightjunch_wil!_be_  given.      This   should   prove    a  great drawing card for the lodge  in that it will have a tendency to  get a larger attendance of the  members at every meeting.    It  will also   be a great factor towards securing new members in  that it shows a live healthy organization  as well  as the good  fellowship that prevails among  the  members.     The first social  evening was held last Wednesday  and  we  print below the  programme of the evening at which  during an  interval  a  luncheon  was served.  Mr. E.   G.   Walker was chairman of the evening.  Following is  the programme:  E. G, Walker, -You'll Remember Me,'  A. Livingston, 'Sea, England's  Glory.'  Bro.

factory:has.often been helped in.
a similar way.        -Li   '"
In to western; Can ada f or so rrie
years there 'lias' been coming' a
multitude of dreamers. They, are,
the -.^pioneer. ; settlers. Their
dreams. taken separately :can:
scarcely be1 called ambitious; in
the , aggregate the commercial
stability of the west depends on
their being realized.
The immigrant came to the
' middle western provinces ol
Manitoba, ?Saskatchewan and
Alberta., He was given his
hundred.and.sixty.acres of land
ready.-for,.the plough. He dreamed of'it' as; a!'wheat field waving
with golden'-harvest, and if. ht
was a.porker a .very, few years
say?.-his.dream fulfilled.
>: The -British Columbian immigrant- rftn-ds;- his -acres forested,
,"As ,.;he .lobK's on the pine and fir
jblad.slope,s: hp has visions. !Hc-
.sees fields; and -orchards, arid a
home among them. A wife, per
haps, is" sitting on "the veranda
and children playing on the'
lawn. He'll" need theth to help
pick the strawberries, A phone
connects his,nest with hig neighbors and "th\ bigger world outside. It may be that tram cars
pass in front of his farm to carry
his fruit tomarket.
It is the'dream that makes his
arm strong • and his heart stout
in the, years that lie between.
Many of' these settlers are men
of mind- and will as well as
muscle and they make the" dream
come "t'ruVr' :Many of them unless helped-.will-.spend their lives
in-the .effort, y   "•■ -;    ,
Gove.rnmem'ls-''_have been ar-d
are doing something to- help.
The Australian- government is
now setting the-pace. The men
at this province have done much
to open up .its remotest parts and
make the lands accessible.
Whatever.1" these men's faults
may be, lack" of .initiative is not
one of them. People remain interesting who are always liable
to break out in a fresh place.
Who can know but that the
Premier's*'next stroke of constructive statesmanship may bt
a comprehensive scheme for as-
sisting-.the-seUler to realize hip
dream before he is grey-headed?

In addition to the twenty-seven first prizes of $50 each, there will  be eigh^-one other cash prizes, ranging from $10 to $25 in our  PRIZE  CONTEST FOR  FARMERS'  I  ��� This contest is along the same lines as the  one which was so successful last year, except  ���that there'are three'times as many prizes, and  therefore-three-times as many chances for  each contestant to win. Every farmer in Canada who uses "Canada" Cement is eligible to  compete. The conditions are such that large  and small users of cement have equal opportunities to win a 550 prize.  The contest is divided into three classes, and there  are first", second,, third and fourth pri2cs (550, $25,  515 and^lp) in'each class.  , CLASS ���'A'.'��� Prlaei tobe��w��rilciltothefour farmen in ewli province  ��� Who me most "Canada" Cement on their farmi In 1912.
