EDITORIAL NOTES
3
It may lie interesting and instructive to any who were not at
the meeting addressed by Veterinary Inspector Tolmie last week,
to give iu brief some of the information he imparted re the disease that is now creating so intense an interest in the province
and especially in the Okanagan
valley and the city of Vancouver,
where it is most prevalent.
Glanders is one of earliest known
diseases of an imals, history showing its existence ns early ns 874
B. C. It is u disease peculiar to
the horse, mule and ass and is
easily communicable to man.
Goats and sheep obtain the disease only by direct inuoculation,
while cattle and fowl are nlto-
gather immune.
The disease is practically incurable and in the case of man causes
death very quickly, from three to
ten days.
It was first regarded as contagions during the 17th century, at
about which time was discovered
the fact that it was communicable
toman.
The glanders germ, the bacillus
mallus, was first discovered in 1882
by German scientists. Since that
time all civilized countries have
been active in the effort to eradicate the disease and prevent its
spread wherever found to exist
This genu becomes inactive at, a
temperature greater than 113 or
lower than 68 Fahrenheit. It will
live in water for from -fifteen to
twenty days and will live in other
places for various lengths of time
according to surroundings and con
ditiona varying to as long as fonr
months which is the longest period
it will live in any condition out-
aide the animal or human body.
France was one of the last to admit of the contagion of the disease and as a result that country
heads the list in the number of
deaths both among animals and in
men.
Because of tho fact that the
germ may effect various parts of
the animal organs, Such as the
spleen, liver, lymphatic glands,
testicles or any portion of the
lympathic system, the symptoms of
-the disease are varied and often
-difficult of detection except in the
acute form. Even on post mortem
examination the presence of the
diaeaae is often hard to detect with
tbe naked eye, since the glander
module* may exist in a form no
larger than a very small grain of
•and and no larger than a Held pea.
The mullein test after many
years investigation und scientific
experiments has been adopted by
practically every civilized country,
in which glanders exists, as the
only reliable test for its prevalence. The manner in which mullein is prepared is by taking the
germ, the baccillus mallus, or
glanders germ, placing it in bouil-
lion or soup of human flesh and
ivllowing it to develop at the proper temperature until the germs!
havo developed until they die in
their own poison. This substance
is then twice boiled for several'
hours, repeatedly filtered and
evaporated until ther 1 is no pos- j
nihility of contamination of the
disease from these germs, This
substance is then mixed with a one
per cent solution of carbolic acid
and in ready for injection.   Being
composed of the gltuulers germ, no
other disease germs urn stimulated
by  this  mullein,  and   tho   most
thorough investigation and expert't
ments have proved that no reaction
will be  produced   iu   the   animal'
without the presence of the gland-
era germ,   A rise in the tempera- i
tun- of from one and a half degrees
apttard is one of the lirst evidences
of the presence of the disease after
the  injection   of    tho    mullein. 1
(llher symptoms of tho disease are
also made evident tothoexperleno.l
ed veterinary, and all these are!
carefully taken into consideration
before tho  animal   is   condemned
and destroyed,
Horse owners who are not satis-.
tied with the first test in which a
reaction is produced may have their
animals placed in strict quarantine
fur thirty days and rotestod at that
time, when if found to react they
oro immediately destroyed, In case;
the owner chooses this course the,
right of compensation in case of
destruction is forfeited. !
As an aid to the destruction of
the glanders germ. Dr. Tolmie I
recommended the use of one part 1
crude carbolic acid to twenty parts
linn- wash. For harness one to-
twenty parts creosote is recom-!
mended.

Co,, operated by the furmers of the
province, is, we believe, an insti-
tution that thould receive the consideration of parties   having   pro- j
perty on   which   they   desire   to;
place insurance.   The company  is
now apparently   onji sound work-
ing basis, having some $000,000 i
insurance in force.   Conducted ns j
it is, with practically no expense,;
this organization should be in n
position to give the most favorable
rates to the policy holders and at
the same time they would not be
paying toll to   the high-salaried
monopolies   of   some of the old
line companies.    The    company
cannot, however, hope to win that!
amount of business in their line!
by a too conservative method of I  gw^
doing business.   In this age there
is required more of an energetio
hustle for business   than merely
sitting down and waiting for business to come to yon.   8ome good
legitimate advertising on the part
of the company would go a long
way toward bringing the amount
of their policies to the prominence
they aspire to.

There are some places among
the Chinese washee houses in
town that might bear the inspection of provincial authorities. It
is well known that gambling in its
worst and most open phases is carried on to excess among the- Celestials of the town and so far they
have been undisturbed in their
practices. Local difficulties among
themselves are said be to settled in
their own way among themselves, i
yet this is hardly the proper thing
to be tolerated among people who,,
as they, enjoy the protection of the
civic courts of the country. No
other class or nationality wonld be
allowed to carry on at will with n
similar disregard for the laws of
the land.

The fact that five out of eight of
the medals captured by the British.
Columbia fruit exhibit at London
came to tbe Okanagan should encourage residents here in their expectations for the future. Though
none of these were won by the
immediate district of Armstrong,
yet we shore in the glory won by
the whole vulley, and enn safely
feel that no discredit has been
been done our immediate district
for the reason that no fruit was
sent from here. Truly the Okanogan is entitled to the banner position as the fruit section of the province.
Interest in affairs municipal continues to grow. Prom the present
outlook next Monday promises to
be an interesting day among aspirants for honors and several contests are promised for the following

B.C.   It is a disease peculiar to L^ on   which   they   degire   to
the horse, mule   and   ass   and   is
easily
communicable to man.
Goats and sheep obtain the disease only by direct inuoculution,
while cattle and fowl are alto-
gather immune.
The disease is practically incurable and in the case of man causes
death very quickly, from three to
ten days.
It was first regarded as contagious during the 17th century, at
about which time was discovered
the fact that it was communicable
toman.
The glanders germ, the bacillus
mallus, was first discovered in 1882
fcy German scientists. Since that
time all civilized countries have
been active in the effort to eradicate the disease ant prevent its
spread wherever found to exist.
This germ becomes inactive at a
temperature greater than 113 or
lower than 68 Fahrenheit. It will
live in water for from -fifteen to
twenty days and will live in other
places for various lengths of time
according to surroundings and conditions varying to as long as four
months which is the longest period
it will live in any condition outside the animal or human body.
France was one of the last to admit of the contagion of the disease and as a result that country
heads the list in the number of
deaths both among animals and in
men.
Because of tbe fact that the
germ may effect various parts of
the animal organs, Such as the
spleen, liver, lymphatic glands,
testicles or any portion of the
lympathic system, the symptoms of
tile disease ore varied and often
-difficult of detection except in the
acute form. Even on post mortem
examination the presence oi the
disease is often hard to detect with
the naked eye, since the (dander
modules may exist in a form no
larger than a very small grain of
•and and no larger than a field pea.
The mullein test after many
years investigation und scientific
experiments has been adopted by
practically every civilized country,
in which glanders exists, us the
only reliable test for its prevalence. Tho manner in which mullein is prepared is   by   taking  the
germ,     the   baccillus   mallus, or tion as the fruit section of the pro-
glnnders germ, placing it in  bouil- vince
lion or soup of human flesh andj
allowing it to develop nt the proper temperature until   the   germs
have developed until they   die   in
their own poison.   This substance
IB then  twice   boiled   for   several
hours,    repeatedly    filtered  and
evaporated until ther
they
place insurance. Tho company is ]
now apparently onji sound work-
ing basis, having some $!KX),000;
insurance in force. Conducted as
it is, with practically no expense,;
this organization should be in a:
position to give the most favorable j
rates to the policy holders and at
the same time they would not be
paying toll to the high-salaried
monopolies of some of the old
line companies. The company
cannot, however, hope to win that
amount of business in their line
by a too conservative method of i
doing business. In this age there
is required more of an energetio
hustle for business than merely
sitting down and waiting for business to come to yon. Bone good
legitimate advertising on the part
of the company would go a long
way toward bringing the amount
of their policies to the prominence
they aspire to.
There are some places among
the Chinese woshee houses in
town that might bear the inspection of provincial authorities. It
is well known thnt gambling in its
worst and most open phases is carried on to excess among the Celestials of the town and so far they
have been undisturbed in their
practices. Local difficulties among
themselves are said be to settled in
their own way among themselves,
yet this is hardly the proper thing
to be tolerated among people who,
as they, enjoy the protection of the
civic courts of the country. No
other class or nationality would be
allowed to carry on at will with a
similar disregard for the laws of
the land.
The fact that five out of eight of
the medals captured by the British
Columbia fruit exhibit at London
came to the Okanagan should encourage residents here in their expectations for the future. Though
none of these were won by the
immediate district of Armstrong,
yet we shure in tho glory won by
the whole valley, and can safely
feel that no discredit hns been',
been done our immediate district
for the reason that no fruit wns
sent from here. Truly the Okanagan is entitled to the banner posi-

in every way conform to the regulations laid down from time to time
by the municipal council.
The company cannot charge
more for light and power than the
city of Vancouver, B.C., though in
this connection we wish to poii
out that we must charge prices for
light, power and tramway fares
which will be reasonable and within the reach of all to make the
system popular.
The company must commence its
light and power plant within ti
months and complete the same
within 12 months, and must commence their tramways within 'i
years and complete at least 7 miles
within Ii years or they lose their
franchise.
The municipality can by giving
12 months notice in writing purchase the plant of the company at
any time, the price of which is to
be decided by arbitration, the company to be allowed nothing for
their franchise or water power,
thus giving the municipally the
absolutely certain knowledge that

The Nasby and the Bank Clerk.
"Once upon a time''—as all good
stories go—a certain young newspaper man and his companion, a
bank clerk by choice —two gallant
youthsthese- sought to escort a
! number of handsome ladies—as all
young men will— for a sleigh ride.
Now it so happened that these
particular young men suffered an
affection known as kodak-mania,
and coining to a particularly attractive spot a htiult was made in
order that there might be procured
a picture that would long be cher-l
ished in after years. The afore-
said nusby being especially adept
at handling the lines was left in
charge of the team while he of the
currency counter sought to emulate
the abilities of the photographer.
Here the curtain is drawn, for the;
next scene in this Interesting nnr-l
rative would disclose only It. heap
of feminine beauty, robes and an
upturned sleigh, from which is
seen the gallant bank clerk struggling in an i-ndi-nvor to extricate
his versatile companion, while the
genial reeve of the municipality is
to be seen in pursuit of the escaped team.
