A historical lecture de- scribing the beginnings and growth 01 Montreal Methodism will be one of the features. Other item's on the pro- gram are .an ail-Methodist praise ser- vice, and a night of reminisces ceSi participated in by sons and daughters of St. James from far and near, and a Sunday morning fellowship meeting, commencing at 8 o'clock, so as to give time for what is .expected to be biggest -meeting of .the sort ever held in the city. St. Church is in a peculiar sense representative of Can- adian ..-Methodism in general, and this centenary celebration will no doubt attract a large number of people who, though never members of the historic counter, but now the cheaper and more insidious vice of the cigarette was spreading fast, advertisements be- ing placarded all over the country in hold of by Christian people. Among 'the many and varied activ- ities of Dr. Wilfred Grenfell is to be included a Bible Class, which, he con- alon; ment, will come the sewer depart- ripping things up and sure has, retain control of the com- missioners. Thus the people of Leth- bridge will- probably have opportun ity this- fall to vote upon the "straight commission plan" or what is sometimes: known as the "Des Moines system" of city government, because it was first adopted .by the city of that name. It; has since been adopted irr the Middle and West- ern States by over seventy cities, varying in population from ten to two hundred thousand, and'from all accounts seems to be working per- fectly in. all of them.

Fruit Lands In British vear jear tne value _ Offer decidedly remunerative and 'attractive returns. The cultivation of fruits. m this province has become a most interesting art, and a highly profitable industry that provides the grower with a generous competence under the most ideal con- ditions and surroundings imaginable. The most desirable fruit farming district in British Columbia is undoubtedly the Upper Okanagan Valley, where peaches, pears, grapes, apples and every variety of _ small fruits can be grown to perfection. The climate is particularly even and mild, the summer temperature ranging from 70 to 90 degrees, while in the winter the average is 26 degrees above' zero. No irrigation is- necessary, the rainfall throughout the whole year being amply sufficient and well-distributed. In this Upper' Okanagan Valley is the beautiful Carlin Estate, a portion of which has been sub-divided by the owners into blocks ranging from 10 to 20 acres each, and placed with us for sale. This most desirable fruit land lies along the Okanagan branch of the C.P.R., and the Shuswap River as shown on the key plan. The soil is excellent and the cost of clearing what little repuires to be cleared will be small. CARLIN ORCHARDS besides being the most ideally located, are a splendid in- vestment. because when once planted and the trees to bearing, a greatly enhanced value is assurer. Conservative estimates place the value per acre when trees begin to bear at nun T -v ?50C" and this figure steadil-v increases each year until at tho end of the tenth f per acre or more. In the meantime, while the larger fruit trees arc being: matured, every 10 acres under cultivation We are offering Carlin Orchards "at prices ranging from to per acre. Small cash payment down and the balance extended over a term of three years. We believe that Carlin Orchards are the very best' opportunity that has been offered for some time to the man who wishes to become tne owner of a small holding of good land in one of the most favored districts in the world. diStriCt W feel convinced -that CARL.N ORCHARDS are the very best v.lue in this We know that this land will bear your closest investigation, and we' earnestly urge to conscientiously consider Carlin Orchards. To aid you we have caretully compiled authentic information regarding the land, climate, markets, transportation, etc., which we will be pleas- ed to forward together with maps and pictures. We believe it-to be to your interest to acquire this information abo.ut the Upper Okanagan name and address on a post card, or any particular inquiries you wish -to make will receive a prompt reply.
