Blanchard and Ruttan, as  members of the finance committee,  recommended that the spending 'committees of the Council be asked to  furnish estimates of the amounts required for their respective departments and that appropriation for the  year's work should be made by the  Council- for each -department; also  that the committees furnish^ with the  estimates a list of the expenditures  under two headings, expenditures absolutely necessary and expenditures  recommended but not indispensable.  The object of these suggestions is to  systematize the handling of the city  business.  The estimate of the Board of  School' Trustees places the expenditures for the ensuing year at $2,600,  exclusive of the Government grant.  Aids.

A letter from Mr. Lemke, bandmaster, asking on behalf of the band  the use of a room in the City Hall  on two nights a week for rehearsal,  provided the room was not in use by  the Council on the nights of practice.  It was decided to reply that there is  difficulty in the way- of complying  with the request and that ,the Council trust that the band will be able  to retain the use of the school house  or if not that it will be able to obtain some other- suitable and satisfactory  accommodation.  The Parker Bell Lumber Co., of  Seattle wrote, asking for an expression of opinion- by the Council as to  the serviceability and Use of wood  pipe. The Clerk was instructed to  reply that wood pipe had been used  here too short-a time to justify giving any opinion.

It all came about through  the band being driven out of its practice room and being denied admission  to the City Hall. Owing to the dirt  which is said to be carried into the  school house by the crowd of young  fellows who usually attend the, band  practices with the" players, the school  board have asked the band to find  other quarters in which to, practice.  And the band appealed to the city  [fathers for a room in the City Hall.  . The. city fathers were '. astute. They  did.not refuse the request, but intimated as one might intimate to poor  unfortunate nobody's "cat, with the  shot" gun in one hand and,the bootjack in" the other, that difficulties  stood in the way. And the band,- being shut out of the only places of a  public nature,' concluded it would  not attempt to: hold" together if it  could.notrbe-provided: with"ar-place, irr  which to practice, and so disbanded.  However, "the city-.is. desirous of seeing the band, continue, and.it is "not  unlikely that satisfactory quarters  will be " arranged for either in the  City Hall until -such time.as better  City Hall-or the school house> until  such time as better quarters are provided.

In  every public event, they have ever  been ready to do their part, and in  all branches of church work, Mrs.  Wright and Mrs. McCormick have  taken a prominent part. They were  associated more particularly with the  work of the Presbyterian church, but  were, bigger than any sect when there  was work to do in other quarters.

This explanation was not then  wholly clear to Louis, but he understood that there was a barrier  between his father and Maude, and  this of itself was suflicient to draw  him more closely to the latter, who,  after that dny, cherished him. if  positive dislike to tlie   |...<__.ibk.   more  tenderiv    than i_he  oi. the poor unfortunate. Ali loved  him seemingly the more-all, save  the cruel father, who. as (he  months and years rolled on, seemed  le acquire  little boy, seldom noticing him in  any way, except to frown if he weie  brought into his sight. And Louis,  with ihe quick instinct oi' childhood, learned lo expect, nothing  from his father, whose, attention he  never tried  to attract.  Ac if to make amends fur his physical deformity, he possessed an uncommon   mind,   and  when    he  was  nearly .six years of ..ge accident, 1 .-  realed to him the reason of his father's    continued      coldness,    and  wrung from him  the first tears he  had  ever shed   for his  micfortune.  He heard one day his mother playing that God would soften hcr hus-  bannd's heart'   toward    his    poor  hunchback boy.   who    was    not to  blame for his misfortune���������������������������and laying his head upon the broad arm of  t'he chair which had been made for  him, he wept bitterly, for he know  . now why he was hot loved.    That  night, as in his crib hc lay, watching the stars which shone upon him  through  thc  window,  and wondering if in heaven there were hunchback  boys  like  him,  he  overheard  hi.s  father   talking  to   his  mother,  and the words th.'it father said were  never  forgotten   to  hi.s  dying  day'.  They  were:   "���������������������������Don't  ask ihe to  be  reconciled to a cripple!   What good  .an he do me?   He will never earn  his own living,  lame as he is. nnd  will only  be in   the way."  "Oh, 'father, father," the cripple essayed to say, bin, he could  not speak, so full of pain was his  little, bursting heart, and lhat  night  he  lay  awake,  praying  that  had done before, keeping him out  of his father's way, and cushioning  hi. little erutch.es so they could not  be heard, for she rightly guessed  that thc sound of them was hateful  t.o the harsh man's care.  Mauds was far older than her  years, and during the period of  iiine over which wc have passed so  briefly, she had matured both in  mind and body, until now at thc  ag. of twelve, she was a self-reliant little woman on whom her mother wholly depended for comfort  and counsel. Very rapidly was  Mrs. Kennedy passing from the  world and as she felt the approach  of death, she leaned more and more  upon her daughter, talking to her  often- of the fi'ture and commending Louis to her care-, when with  hcr he would be motherless.  Maude'a posilion was now a trying  one. for, when her mother became  too ill to leave her room, and the  doctor refused to hire extra help,  saying, "two great girls were help  enough," if was necessary for her  to go into the kitchen, where she  vnmly tried io conciliate old Hannah, who. "wouldn't mind a chit  of a girl, and wouldn't fret herself  either if things were not half done."  From the first Nellie resolutely  refused to work���������������������������-"it ..would    black  cd to be full  of ilowcrs.  "She must havc come to stay a  long time," thought Nellie, as she  saw the piles of baggage which thc  driver was depositing upon the  stoop. "Who can it be." she, continued, as she recalled all her aunts  and cousins, and found that none  of them answered the. description  of this woman, who knocked loudly  at the door, and then walked in to  shelter herself  from   the   storm.

All germ diseases, and especially tuberculosis, are more liable to  affect animals that are in a rundown condition, such as cows afflicted with infectious abortion or  retained after birth, than those  that are.in a strong, healthy condition, for the reason that the animal  th.'it lacks vitality acts us a hot-bed  for the germs of diseases to propagate nnd multiply, while thc healthy, strong vigorous animal may  un rd off the disease lo some extent.  Tuberculosis being largely a  house or stable disease due to artificial life such ns being housed or  stabled, every possible precaution  should bo taken to prevent disease.

When one considers the frightful  consequences of gathering and eating  poisoning mushrooms in mistake for  the edible variety it is little short of  marvelous that one without knowledge  should dare go into the fields and  woods and pick and eat' any of thc  fungi growing-there.'  ]f one is thoroughly familiar with  a particular variety of edible mushroom and ean distinguish it at sight  from all others, however similar in  color and form, ifc is-safe to eat that  particular variety but- one must- beware of other kind3 that resemble it,  for, however slight the-difference in  appearance, one may be "edible nnd  the other poisonous. There ia no absolute rule for distinguishing the  edible from the poisonous kinds, and  it is better, therefore, to give no general rules, but to follow only one.  Suspect, every mushroom which you  do not knovr-positively tobc edible.  To'this rule perhaps may be'added  a second: L&nrxx io distinguish the  white spored agarics and avoid them  all, for, although there is an edible  specie*, it requires an expert to tell  it, and the poison of another species  is deadly, and there is no known antidote for it.  The chief poisons in mushrooms urev|  two in number���������������������������muse .Tin and phallin.  The first of these produces symptoms  resembling those, of alcoholic intoxication, followed by convulsions or  paralysis, collapse and death from  heart failure.". These symptoms come  on soon after the mushrooms have  been' eaten.  In poisoning by phallin the symptoms do not appear until several hours  after the meal.    They resemble chol- j  cra_ beginning���������������������������wilh'severe abdominal ;  pain,    soon   followed  , by   vomiting, :  purgin.   and collapse. . . j  In all cases  of .mushroom ��������������������������� poison- j  ing,  vomiting should be induced as j  soon as possible, and a large dose of '  castor oil mar" be /riven to hasten the  elimination of any as yet unabsorbed  portions of tho mushroom.

WALKER, Local Agent  The rose garden must not be situated under the branches of trees and  should be placed well away from all  tree and shrubbery growth, as the  roots of these extend much further  than their branches. Select, if possible, and "open" situation, i.e.,  where the plants will get plenty of  air and sunshine. It is not necessary, nor even desirable, however,  that there should be unbroken sunshine all day, especially during the  summer. A southeastern exposure  is probably the ideal one in which  the garden will reach its fullest development, but the' flowers will retain their dewy morning freshness  longer (and it is in the early morning that the rose is at its best) if  beds are placed where the morning  sun is slow in reaching.  The ideal soil is what may be  termed a- clay -loam.' -This is of an  adhesive nature, but should be sufficiently porous to permit the ready  drainaige of water. Any good garden  soil, however, which will produce  good vegetables, will, with proper  fertilization, yield very fine roses.  A too heavy soil may be improved by  .working in a little coarse sand, and  vice versa.  Fertilizers, while not a very pleasant topic or article to handle, is,  nevertheless, a most important one.  Animal, manure, from one to two  years old, is, where it can be obtained, the most,, desirable. Cow  manure is generally preferred by ros-  arians. ��������������������������� It can be used most liberally  without any danger from burning; it  is also most useful in holding moisture in ' the soil. Horse manure,  when new, is very heating and should  not be used while in this condition  except as a winter" mulch. Hog,  sheep and chicken manure are also  very useful. The last two should,  however, be used very sparingly.  Ground bone is the most useful of  the commercial" fertilizers. This may  be obtained, in several degrees of  fineness. My own'practice is to mix  fine bone" meal; medium' ground bone  and coarse crushed bone. In this  way I obtain both immediate and  lasting results. This may be used-  separately, -or to supplement animal  manures. After the beds are well  dug, scatter the bone' oh the surface  until:the ground is nearly covered;  then, with the use of a fork, it can  be quickly and thoroughly mixed into  the already fined soil. Nitrate of  soda, an odorless article resembling  a /coarse, brownish, damp "salt, ^is  useful in promoting, quick growth. It  should be scattered thinly' (about a  good tablespoonful to a plant) on the  surface after plants have leaved out.  Where .plenty of animal manure is  available, it is generally best to let  artificial fertilizers alone, 'for if injudiciously used, harm often results.  Air-slacked - lime is also very benefi-"  cial., A large handful to the plant,  scattered on the surface in early  APXiLjaLnd^again^in^midsummer^is^usr.  ually very helpful, acting both as a  sweetener of the soil and fertilizer.  Where the best attainable results  are desired, the beds should be  trenched to a depth of 15 to 18 inches  ���������������������������i. e., the soil should be removed to  that depth, well pulverized, mixed  with from one-third to one-fourth of  its bulk with well-rotted animal  manure,  and" when" returned" should  stand three or four inches higher  than surrounding soil. It will settle  quickly at the first heavy rain. In a  low situation, or where the water  does not quickly disappear after a  rain, drainage will. be necessary.  This may be effected by removing another section of soil about 8 to 12  inches, and filling in with stones,  broken bricks, or other similar substance, the smaller pieces on top and  the whole given a coating of gravel  or ashes to prevent the soil washing  through. The soil taken out at this  depth is, especially in the Bast, usually quite incapable of supporting  plant life, and should be removed  from the premises.  I cannot emphasize too- strongly,  the importance of thorough preparation of soil. Do not leave the manure in layers or lumps, but break it  up and mix until there are neither  lumps of manure nor soil to be  found. You will, of course, use the  best obtainable soil for your rose  beds. Two-thirds of your success is  dependable upon preparation, the  other tliird upon your selection of  the plants.���������������������������Geo. H. Patterson, the  Roseman, Fair Lawn, N. J.  READY-MADE FARMS IN DEMAND  A cable from Mr. C. W. Paterson,  manager of the Canadian Pacific Irrigation Colonization Company, calls  for the immediate development ��������������������������� of  100 additional ready-made farms to  be prepared for British farmers who  will come to the Northwest and go  into residence on these farms this  spring. Eighty families will sail  from Liverpool on March 25th, and  will locate " on farms . plowed and  seeded last autumn. The erection of  buildings has commenced, .and contractors will have these homes ready  for occupancy upon the arrival of the  first party. Those to -whom farms  are sold are the pick of British agriculturists, the majority coming from  dairying districts. ' Desirable British  families whose means,will not permit  of their emigration, will be assisted  by the company, payments being, ex-"  tended over a number of years.

John B. Bird, secretary of the  Institute, after calling attention to  the importance of this meeting, says:  "The subscriptions come ��������������������������� in very  slowly from Enderby, which ought  not to be, as we do all we" can to  help on the poultry industry in the  neighborhood. There are quite a  number who have not paid their last  years fee, and-it comes back on me  and I have to pay them and take  chances of getting it again.

After some  demur Mr.   .Marsden
:\������>,re.ed    to    the    interview    taking
place.    Naturally it    was   painful,
but presently the optimism of youth
ideal   ro_.  supreme.
"Things will come all right yet,
Dick. I'm sure they wiil," Edith
said. "We must just accept things
for the present, but, 'rest assured,
no fiowor on earth will make me
marry Mr. Wilding���������I loathe him."

"Then I don't think T .should at

."He took Edith in his arms and,
kisse'd her passionately.
"That's our good-bye kiss, little
woman." he murmured.
"Bufc only for a little while,
Dick,"  whispered the girl.
When they entered the dining-
room they appeared perfectly calm
and natural. Mr. Marsden observed this with pleasure, and was glad
that they had apparently taken
matters  so sensibly.
Mr. Wilding dined with tlie
Marsdens that night. He was a
man of medium height, very broad,
and inclined fco bc stout. His completion -was crimson, his skin
coarse, and he was partially bald.
Bufc there waa no denying those
stool blue eyes; they were never
placed in the head of a fool.
As Mr. Marsden said, .Wilding
was an ideal business man. No one
could cut a contractor down so well
as he, no man could get so much
work out of his men for standard
wa.es. in the factory he was
loathed, and yet thc very men. who
detested him could nofc help admit-
man of buHin ess,"
"But, Kdiih! The man's not fit
to touch you. He's a coarse, ill-
mannered ct.d."
"'.But. he's a splendid man of business," rejoined Edith as bitterly
as before. "Thirty years ago he
fetched Uic men's beer; tio\v he is
second only to my father. That is
what my rather thinks so much of,
and fchafc is why hc'is convinced that
Mr. Wilding would make a most
suitable husband."
"Hush, Edith, I can't bear to
hear you talk like that," said Dick
Thornton. "Wilding shall not bo

sec your father.'
"You'll have as much chance of
shaking his conviction if his mind
is made up, as I think ib is, as you
would have, of shaking Snowdcn,"
replied  Edith.
"Vou wait, dear. When he sees
how tilings arc between us, he can't
refuse me."
That evening Dick Thornton
called en Mr. Marsden. The latter owned a huge factory where

of articles of iron or. steel were

roughly. "[ asked Mr. Marsden

He turned on his heel and strode

with rage. When the manager did

took any notice of Dick. As a matter of fact Thornton's politeness
angered him almost beyond control.

"No good, sir. I saw that long
brute McGralh, and he jusfc grinned
in my face when I suggested they

Mr. Marsden. "1 want to get;

General society is less familiar
with fche personality of the Princess
Victoria than with that of any other
member of thc royal family. The
lighter side of courfc-life, 'its gaye-

have never appcalod to tho Princess, who if she had consulted her
own inclinations would not havo
taken a very active part in the social activities of thc court.
"Duty demanded hcr presence at

the Gentlewoman, "and she did
cheerfully all that her high position
demanded of her. During hor girlhood she continued as far as possible to stay at > Sand rin gham when
the King and Queen, then Princo
and Princess of Wales, were at
Marlborough House.
"A rather amusing story is related of how the Princess onco
avoided a juvenile entertainment
at Marlborough House, at whieh sho

left in 'her blotter in the schoolroom. Thc letter explained fchafc
sh? had gone for the afternoon to

"As fche Princess grew older (sho

havc been to lead a life apart from

HOLTBY  Furniture Dealer and Undertaker  BRADLEY BLK.       ENDERBY  hood surrounded by natural beauty.  The consideration of cost prevents  attention being paid to the demand  for better surroundings. It need, not  keep the schoolhouse and grounds  bare and ugly, for the teacher or any  tactful member of the community  who has the Will can effect a reform  at ..trifling expense.  Two points must be borne in mind  in laying out the plans for the work.  First,the children have a right to a  playground,  and  the planting should  not   encroach    on    the   open    spaces  where they are    accustomed to enjoy  their sports.   Thc grouping should be  at the sides and back of the lot, and  to  screen  objectionable views.     Sec-  i ond; as the schoolhouse and yard are  not used  during    midsummer, choice  should be made    of Spring and Fall  blooming    varieties.       Some berried  shrubs and  evergreens  should   surely  be included to brighten the view during   winter.       Varieties of the most  beautiful     shrubs-   imaginable    grow  wild within easy reach of the scholars.     Nothing the florist can furnish  can    surpass     rhododendrons,    magnolias, laurels and azaleas, yet these  grow  wild in different sections.      Of  shrubs   and    trees   which   might   be  chosen some of the best are the dogwoods, especially those which ih addition    to   handsome    early    flowers  have   bright   berries    or handsomely  colored   leaves    in   the Autumn; the  native    Judas-tree    or   redbnd,    less  common than the dogwoods, but very  ornamental in    its garb of pink; the  native thorns, cousins of the admired  English hawthorn;    the various wild  cherries���������������������������the red, the black, the sand  cherry���������������������������and    the   wild   plums; - crab-  apples, if they can be obtained, might  well be   included.     All these are for  the early display of foliage.   To them  may be added for later effect some of  the wild single roses and wild brambles of the thickets..     Even the common elder   which   if introduced by a  j florist might   be   esteemed no mean  j rival of the popular hydrangea, with  its masses   of   minute white flowers  succeeded by a wealth of berries, deserves a place in every collection of  native shrubs.  Without exhausting the list of valuable native shrubs and vines, a  wealth of material exists from which  every country schoolhouse in the  rfarul migfi_^be rendered an object of  ��������������������������� beauty. All that Is needed is the  will, and^the way can be found. The  children will love the place more for  their share in its improvement and  will take a real pride in all that goes  to make the building and grounds  more attractive���������������������������Amelia H.Botsford  in the March Delineator.  The burning of thc Okanagan Hotel  last summer shows what fearful loss  of life there may be in a large frame  building in case of fire if proper precautions are not taken. Now it  would not have cost much to have  built fire walls in the new hospital  so as to have isolated each wing in  case of fire. But even 'this simple,  inexpensive and obvious precaution  was neglected.  Again, the hot water pipes to the  wings were not laid through the  building and inside of the foundation  but through the yard, thereby violating the first principles of economical  heating. The enormous consumption  of coal during the two weeks of cold  weather we had this winter shows  what we may expect in an ordinary  winter. And there are other grave  defects in its construction. And for  this sort of building nearly $3,500.00  was paid to the 'architects for fees.  Now no one is desirous of kicking:  we are all willing to bear our,.share  of the burden,and make the best of a  bad job, but Mr. Henderson is  stretching it when he claims this to  be the best hospital in the Province  or in Canada. Mr. McBride is not a  fool. Yours truly, OBSERVER,  Vernon, B.C., Feb. 20, 1910.  L. S. GRAY, Florist  Vernon Greenhouses  Vernon, B.C.
