of the kind in the district. He owns fifteen thousand acres of land some
sixteen miles west of Kamloops, and this is in all respects a model ranch.
He takes much pride in his fine herd of pure-blooded Herefords, and also
breeds first-class thoroughbred Cleveland Bay and Clydesdale horses. Each
year about thirty-five hundred head of stock are run on his place. His
broad acres produce all the hay for feeding the stock, and he also has
extensive orchards in which are grown quantities of fruit — apples, pears,
plums and peaches. He is the pioneer of the stock industry in the district,
and is president of the Pioneer Society.

■ Mr. Roper was married in 1899 to Miss Grace Marescaux. He has
fraternal affiliations with Lodge No. 417, A. F. & A. M., of the county cf
Dorset.
