recent provincial examination, as J
a result of the first year's high i
school work in the Penticton

possible 1,100.
As a comparison between the
executive ability of the men and
women in Penticton, the men
have held four meetings relative
to the irrigation delegates' visit,
while the ladies found two sufficient to get their part of the
work into ship-shape. We must
confess that the ladies had the
bigger end of the business too.

This they were refused on several   occasions.     Arbitration  was
then sought under the  Lemieux
Act; but the union claim that a
: fair and impartial  decision was
��� not obtained.    The only recourse
was   to  strike.     The   union is
fighting for recognition by the

The statement says in part:   "It

The local committee  waited on

realize that it takes a number
of years to grow trees, and those
who have taken the trouble Lo
grow them have first right to
the fruit. A great many of the
fruit lots are owned by absentees, and those who have charge
of them are responsible for the
orchards. We feel that only a
word is necessary in this regard.
On Tuesday morning two of
the first families who settled in
Penticton removed to the coast,
Mr. and Mrs. W. J. C. Ede and I

Mrs. M. B. Martinson and sons'
going to North Vancouver, where
Mr. Martinson has been since

came here nearly three years
ago, will be much missed in the
community, having always taken
an active part in the various
functions of the place, social and
otherwise. H. L. DeBeck, oi

remove here with his family at
once.

Death of Esteemed Citizen.
On Monday, the 10th inst, at
a few minutes after 11 o'clock,
a. m., the Penticton Fire Brigade
responded to a call to the English
Church vicarage, where a fire
had broken out in the brush along
the creek close to the house. As
the fire was not reported serious,
Chief Dignan did not consider it
necessary to sound a general
alarm but drove out immediately
and with the help of two of his
brigade and a few boys soon had
the fire under control. Through
our new Fire Chief's promptness
was averted what might have
been a very serious conflagration, for with the breeze that
was blowing it might easily have
involved the vicarage.
We welcome to our
It was with feelings of deep
regret that our community was
apprised of the death of one of
its most faithful and upright citizens in the person of John Day,
who died at noon on Monday,
Aug. 10. He had been failing
for some months past, and, in
spite of his sufferings, he maintained to the last his characteristic hopefulness and cheerfulness.
He was a man of exceptionally
noble character, quiet and reticent in his daily life. There
were perhaps few who recognized his solid worth and Christian
excellence. He was a man of
deep, quiet and unostentatious
piety. All those whose privilege
it was to know him, recognized
the strong and beautiful qualities
of. his character. Rarely has it
been said more truly than in this
case, "Let me die the death of
the righteous and let my last
end be like his." Indeed John
Day was a man of superlative
worth, of very high qualities of
character. The funeral took
place on Tuesday afternoon at
3 o'clock. The rector, Rev.
J. A. Cleland, officiated at the
church and at the grave.
The funeral was attended by
many of his friends and acquaintances. The chief mourn-

of the paper the editor says :

The decision to furnish flags'
free of cost to every public
school in the province, with instructions that they be flown
during school hours and upon
public holidays, will undoubtedly
meet with general approval.

provinces, it met with considerable criticism upon the ground
that it would foster a military

The careful thinker and observer,
is cognizant of greater evils in a
nation than militarizm, for what
nation ever accomplished anything or left anything as a heritage to mankind that was not a
military nation ? The greatest
nations of to-day, and those that
spend  most money  upon   their

that is growing up in Canada is
causing its citizens to look more
to self and less to the United
States, and the result will be the
strengthening of our national
character, from which benefit
will accrue to the whole Empire.

Copyrijht.   1DC0.  by   Robert   Birr.
Ey Arrangement with The Authors and Newspapers Association of New York.
"Is your bnggnge checked, and nre
you ready *o go? Most seaside places
nre deserted this time of year."
"We'll be ready lu ii moment captain." cried his future ROU-ln-law. "I
must run up and p>t the governor.
We've put a number of men in prison
here, and they'll starve if not released.
The governor's a good old chap, though
he played it low down on me a few
days ago," nnd with that .lack disappeared up the stairway once more.
"Had a jail delivery here'/" asked
tlie captain.
"Well, something by way of that
The prince drilled a hole In the rock,
and we got out. We've put the garrison In pawn, so to speak, hut I've been
mighty anxious these last few days
because the sailboat 'hey had here and
two of the garrison escaped to the
mainland with the news. We were
anxiously watching vour yacht 'earing it was PiiHsian. .lack thought it
wns the czar's yacht How came you
by sucb a craft, enptaiu? Splendid
looking boat that."
"Oh. yes. 1 bought her n few days
before 1 left New York. One likes to
travel comfortably, yon know. Very
well fitted up she is."
Jack shouted from tbe doorway:
"Drummond, come up here and fling
overboard these loaded rifles. We
can't take any more chances. I'm go-
'ng to lock up the ammunition room
Rtid take the key with me as a souvenir."
"Excuse me. captain." said Drummond, who followed his friend, and
presently bundles of rifles came clattering down the side of the precipice,
plunging into the sen. The two then
descended the steps, .lack in front
Drummond following, with the governor between them.
"Now, governor." said Jack, "for the
second time 1 am to bid you farewell.
Here are tlie keys. If you accept 'hem,
you must give me your word of honor
that the boat will not be Bred upon. If
you do not promise that, I'll drop ths
bunch into the sen, and on your gray
head be tbe consequences,"
"I give you my word of honor that
you shall not be fired upon."
"Very well, governor. Here nre the
keys, nnd goodby."
In tlie flurry of excitement over the
yacht's appearance both Jack and
Drummond had temporarily forgotten
the existence of the tramp steamer tbe
former bad seen beating toward the
rock.
Now Lamont suddenly recalled It.
"By the way. governor." he said,
"the relief boat you so thoughtfully
sent for is ou ber way here. She
should reach the rock at almost any
minute now. In fact, I fancy we've
little time to waste If we want to
avoid a brush. It would be a pity to
be nabbed now at tbe eleventh hour.
Goodby once more."
But the governor bad stepped between him and tbe boat
"1���I am au old man," he said, speaking with manifest embarrassment "I
was sent to take charge of this prison
as punishment for refusing to join a
Jew massacre plot. Governorship here
means no more or less than a life imprisonment My wife aud children are
on a little estate of mine In Sweden,
it Is twelve years sluce I have seen
them.   I"���
"If this Btory Is a ruse to detain us"���
"No! No!" protested the governor,
nnd there wns no mistaking his pathetic, eager sincerity. "But���but I shall
be shot or locked In one of the cells
and the water turned on for letting you
escape. Won't you take me with you?
I will work my passage. Take me as
far ns Stockholm. I shall be free
there���free to join my wife and to live
forever out of reach of tbe grand
dukes.   Take me"���
".lump In!" ordered Jack, coming to
n sudden resolution.    "Heaven  knows
llussinn  poiii'
"Won't ymi lulu: me with yout"
1 would uot condemn my worst enemy
to a perpetual life on this rock. And
you've been pretty decent to us, according to your lights. Jump aboard,
we've no time to waste."
Nor did the governor waste time In
obeying. The others followed, and
the boat shoved off. But scarcely had
the oars cnught the water when around
the promontory came n large uiiino'
wnr's launch, n rapid (ire gun mounted
ou   her  bows,    She   wus   inaunod   by
commented
her   gnu    Is
."now   twenty   men   in
iniform.
"I'rom the 'tramp.''
Alan excitedly. "Aud
lrained on ns."
"(Jet down to work!" shouted Jack
to the straining oarsmen.
"No use'" groaned Kempt. "Shp'll
...������������m wlrhln n nnndr��l rards of ns.
There's no missing at such close range
and on such a quiet sea. What a fool
I was to"���
The launch was indeed heating down
on them despite tbe rowers' best efforts and must unquestionably cut
tbem off before they could reach the
yacht.
The launch was now within bailing
di.itance, aud every man aboard her
was glaring at the helpless little yacht
gig.
"Wait!"
It was the governor who spoke.
Rising from his seat in the stern, he
hailed the ortlcer who was sighting tbe
rapid fire gun.
"Lieutenant Tsehersky!" he called.
At sight of the old man's lean, uniformed figure rising from among tlie
rest there was visible excitement and
surprise aboard tbe launch. The officer saluted and ordered the engine
stopped that he might hear more plainly.
"Lieutenant." repeated the governor.
"I am summoned aboard his highness
the Grand Duke Vladimir's yacht. Yon
will proceed to the harbor and await
my return to tlie rock. There has been
a mutiny among tbe garrison, but I
hnve quelled It."
The officer saluted again, gave an
order, and the launch's nose pointed
for tlie rock.
"Governor,'' observed Lamont as the
old mnn sank again Into his seat
"you've earned your passage to Stockholm.   You need not work for it."
CHAPTER XXI.
EHK girls on the yacht hnd no expectation that Captain Kempt
would come back with the two
young men but when through
their powerful binoculars the girls became aware thnt Drummond and tbe
prince were iu tlie small boat they
both fled to the chief saloon and sat
there holding one another's bands.
Even the exuberant Kate for once had
nothing to say. She heard the voice of
her father on deck, giving command to
the mate.
"Make for Stockholm. Johnson. Take
my men-o'-wnr's men���see that no one
else touches the ammunition���rind fling
the shells overboard. Heave the gun
after them aud then clear out the rifles
and ammunition the same way. When
we reach Stockholm tomorrow morning there must not be a gr.n on board
this ship, and the ridiculous rumor
thnt got abroad among your men that
we were going to attack something or
other you will see is entirely unfounded. You impress that on them, Johnson."
"I tell yon whnt it Is. captain."
sounded the confident voice of the
prince. "This vessel Is n beauty. Y'ou
have done yourself fine. I had no
Idea you were such a sybarite. Why.
I've been nbonrd the czar's yacht, and
1 tell yon it's .nothing��� Great heavens. Katherine!" he shouted In n voice
that made tlie ceiling ring.
She was now standing up and advanced toward him witli both hands
held out, a welcoming smile on her
pretty lips, but be swooped down on
her, flung his arms round her like a
cabman heating warmth into bis
hands, kissed her on the brow, the two
cheeks and Ihe lips, swaying her buck
and forward as If uhout to fling her
upstairs.
"Stop, stop!" she cried. "Aren't you
ashamed of yourself? liefore my father too!   You great llussinn bear!"
"Dou't bother about me, Kate." said
her father. "That's nothing to the
v. ay we acted when I was young.
Come on. hoys, to the smoking room,
and I'll mix you something good���real
Kentucky, twenty-seven years in barrel���and I've got all tbe oilier materials for n Manhattan,"
"Jack. I am glad to fee yon," panted Kntherlne. all in disarray, which
she endeavored to set right by an agitated touch here and there. "Now,
Jack. I'm going to take you to the
smoking room, but you'll hnve to behave yourself us you walk along tbe
deck. 1 won't be made a spectacle of
before the crew."
"Come along. Drummond," said the
captain, "und bring Miss Dorothy with
you."
But Drummond stood In front of
Dorothy .unburst aud hold out his
baud.
"You haven't forgotten me, Miss A.m-
lllll'iit.  1  hope'.'"
"Oh, uo," she replied, with a very
faint smile, tuking bis hand,
"It seems lucredlble tbat you are
here," he begun. "What a luc.'.y man
| am. Captain Kempt takes his -yacht
to rescue his sou-ln-law that Is to be
and Incidentally rescues me us well,
nnd then to tin 1 yon here! I suppose
you came bewtUHe your friend Miss
Kempt  was nhot)I'd l"
"Yes, we ave all but Iu'epdt'oble."
"I wrote yon u letter, Miss Amhurst,

lu the summer,"
"Yes.  I   received It,"
"No  no: thin on.'.   I! was the ul,;hl
i was capture.r. and I never got a
chance to pjst i!. It was an impur
taut letter���for me."
"I though I it impo'tant- for me." re
plied Dorothy, no.v smi inn quite open
ly. "The nihilists got it. searching
your room after you bad lieen arrested. It was seut ou to New Y'ork aud
given to me."
"Is that possible? How did they
know it wns for you'?"
"I had lieen making inquiries through
the nihilists."
"1 wrote you a proposal of marriage. Dorothy."
"It certainly rend like It; but. you
see. It wasn't signed, and you can't be
held to il."
lie reached across the table and
grasped her two hands.
"Do/otby. Dorothy," he cried, "do
you mean you would have cabled
'Y'es f "
"No."
,   "You would not?"
"Of course not I sh""'' hnve en
bled 'Undecided.' One gets more for
one's money in sending a long word.
Then 1 should have written"��� she
paused, and he cried eagerly:
"What?"
'Whnt do you think?" she asked.
"Well, do you know, Dorothy, I am
beginning to think my incredible luck
will hold aud that you'd have written
'Yes.'"
"I don't know about the luck. That
would have been the nnswer."
He sprung up, bent over her, and
she quite unaffectedly raised her face
to bis.
"Oh, Dorothy!" he cried.
"Oh, Alan," she replied, with quivering voice, "I never thought to see you
again! Y'ou cannot imagine tbe long
agony of this voyage and not knowing
what had happened."
"It's a blessing. Dorothy, you hnd
learned nothing about tho Trogzmondoff."
"Ah. but I did. That's what fright-
cued me. We hnve n mnn on board
who wns flung for dead from that
dreadful rook. The Baltic saved him;
his mother, be calls it."
Drummond picked her up In his arras
and carried her to the luxurious divan

travel nil the time, but just take nice
j little   day    trips,    stopping   at    some
. quaint old town  every afternoon and

"Y'ou   mean   to   let  Captain   Kempt.
��� Katherine nnd the prince go to A men

"Of course. Why not? Tbey don't

which ran nlong the side of the large
room. There they sat down together,
out of sight of the stairway.
"Did you get all of my letters?"
"I think so."
"Y'ou know I nm a poor man?"
"I know you said so."
"Don't you consider my position poverty? I thought every one over there
had a contempt for nn income that
didn't run into tens of thousands."
"I told you, Alan, I had been unused to money, nnd so your income
appears to mc quite sufficient"
"Then you are not afraid to trust In
my future?"
"Not tbe least   I believe In you."
"Oh, you denr girl! If you knew
how sweet that sounds! Then I mny
tell you. When I wns In London Inst
I rnn down to Dartmouth, in Devonshire. I shall be stntloned there. You
see, I have finished my foreign cruising, nnd Dartmouth Is, for a time at
lenst, to be my home. There's n fine
bnrbor there, greeu hills nnd a beautiful liver running between tbem. and
I found such a lovely old house���not
grand nt all, yon know, but so cozy
I and comfortable, standing on tbe
| heights overlooking the harbor in tin
I old garden filled with roses, shrubs
| and every kind of flower; vines clam-
i boring nbout the nnclent house. Two
i servants would keep It going like a
shot.   Dorothy, what do you sny?"
Dorothy laughed quietly and whole
benrtedly.
"It rends like n bit from nn old English romance, I'd just love to sue such
a bouse."
"You dou't care for this sort nf thing,
do you?" he asked, glancing round
about him.
"Whnt sort of thing?"
"This yncbt. these silk pnnelings,
these gorgeous pictures, the carving,
tin? gilt, the horribly expensive carpet."
"You men11 should 1 feel it necessary
to be surrounded by such luxury? I
answer most emphatically, no. 1 like
your Ivy covered house at Dartmouth
much better."
For u moment neither snld anything
Lips ennnot speak when pressed together.
"Now, Dorothy, I want you to elope

long before daylight tomorrow at the

as soon us practicable nnd make all
inquiries at tlie consulate about being

married quietly, say In the afternoon,
will you consent to that and then write

parts of the province, section 15
of the Regulations of that Board
adopted the 5th of February,
1900, is to be enforced. Section
15 of the Regulations reads as
follows: ���
"15. It is now deemed necessary, and is hereby ordered, that
teachers in Public Schools and
High Schools or Colleges shall
require a certificate of successful vaccination from each child
attending at such school or col-
ledge, or a certificate that such
child is at that present time insusceptible to vaccination. The
certificates shall be presented on
demand to the teacher or other
proper authority."
You are hereby requested to
give due notice of this Regulation to the teachers in the employ of your Board and to instruct them to demand certificates as called for from every
child presenting himself at
school.
Exceptions to this rule may be
made in favour of the child or
children of parents who object
from conscientious motives to
having their children vaccinated.
In all cases where such valid
objection is offered as a reason
for the non-compliance with Section 15 the child must present to
the teacher a written statement
from his parents giving clearly
the reason for non-compliance.
All communications and inquiries regarding the compulsory
vaccination of children should be
addressed to the Secretary of the
Provincial Board of Health, Victoria.
I have the honour to be
Your obedient servant,
Henry Esson Young,
Minister of Education.

The Automobile Smell.
London, Aug. 1. ���Last week's
daath rate in the metropolis was
] only 10 per 10,000, lower than it
has been in fifty years. A doctor,
��� whose anonymity  is preserved,
! declares that this is due to the
decrease in horse traffic, and especially to the increase in motor
traffle. The fumes from motor
cars and motor buses, according
t > this authority, are the finest
1) issible   disinfectant,    clearing
i the air of germs and impurities.
Partially burned carbonized mat-
i tar is a splendid antiseptic, and
1 the creosote vapors that come
from the motor are in reality a
health tonic and bracer.
There has been a campaign recently against motor buses in
London,   the    charges    against
1 them being that they are driven
along the streets so as to endanger the public safety ; that
they create a tremendous noise,
and make the air reek with a
foul stench. Those who object
on the last-mentioned ground are
now besought to regard the buses
as a blessing in disguise.
