     PETER S. SNEVE.  The United States is greatly indebted to the efforts of those people who come to her borders from Scandanavia.  Not least among this class are those who have devoted their energies to tilling the soil.  And no class of citizens show more loyalty to the United States and her institutions than these people.  Among them it is right that we should mention the subject of this article, who at the present time resides five miles southwest of Molson, where he has a good farm and devotes himself to raising the fruits of the field and stock.
     Peter Sneve was born in Thronhjen, Norway on August 2, 1879, the son of Peter and Rhoda Sneve, natives and prominent and wealthy people of that country, now being in their sixty-fifth and fifty-sixth years respectively.  Our subject is one of seven children, named as follows; Steve, of Chicago, Illinois; Peter S., our subject; Ole, living with Peter; Gertie, died in Spokane six years since; Lena, living with the subject of this article; Elizabeth and Mary still in Norway.
     Peter Sneve was educated well in his own country and there became successful as a carpenter.  In 1899, he and his sister, Lena, determined to try their fortunes in the new world and accordingly shipped for New York.  They made their way to Chicago and after some time came to Nelson, British Columbia and later to Greenwood, where he worked at his trade.  Mr. Sneve also did mining and when the reservation opened in 1900, he located his present place.  He has good land and has improved it in first class shape as his house, barns, orchards, and so forth testify.  Being one of the first to locate, he secured a first class ranch.  In addition to improving his ranch, Mr. Sneve has devoted considerable time to work at his trade and mining in various localities.  He came to this country wth very little means but has secured a goodly holding, while his thrift and industry indicate that he will soon be one of the wealthy men of this section.  To his credit it may be said that Mr, Sneve has thoroughly mastered English and can speak and write it with ease.
