Array wmmssswmmmssm  VOL V.   NO. 48.  KELOWNA, .BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 23, 1913.  $1.50 Par Annum.  Regular Meeting  of Cily Council  DANGER OF RIFLE SHOOTING ON  THE LAKE  WATER JOINS THE ATLANTIC AND PACIFIC  The Onnibon Dike on the Panamacanal was recently blown up, thus  removing tho lost barrier with the exception of the canal looks between  the Atlantic and the Pacific oceans.  Previous to this the water from Gatun Lake was let into Culebra  Cut through four 26-inch pipes inserted through the dike. This water in  the cut acted as a cushion when the dike, was blown up.  Contrary to popular opinion water will not flow from one ocean to the  other. The central part of the canal consisting of Gatun Lake and Culebra Cut is 86 feet above sea level. Thewater for feeding the oanal system coinns from Gatun Lake, made, by impounding the waters, the  Chargree River and its tributaries behind Gatun Lake.  football Team tatalneil  at Vemon  The Kelowna Football team took a  trip up the lake Thanlu^iving Day to  meet the Varaon team. Two games  were played, one ol "Rt*jby" "hen  the two sides tied with a score'' ai  9���3, and the other under "Soccer"  rules, when the Kelowna, boys suffered  defeat to the tune of 4 to 0.  The reception accorded to the looal  boys by the Vernon organization and  their friends, however, took away  the sting of defeat. Tbe hospitable opponents entertained, them in the evening to a football dinner, which took  the proportions of a "banquet."  An elaborate menu and programme  had been prepared and the dining room  .of the Royal Hotel, where the dinner  was held was lavishly decorated with  the olub oolors of both Vernon and  Kelowna teams. Hr. G. A. Henderson  of the Bank of Montreal presided.A f-  ter the dinner an informal1 smoking  concert was held and the fun was kept  up to a late hour.  MOVING PICTURES OF INTEREST  TO THE OKANAGAN  try in the Okanagan '< alley will nhort-  Moving j/iotures in color depicting  the various phases of the fruit indus-  ly be on exhibition throughout the  United Kingdom and Europe. Mr. A.  C. Sintzeniob, one of the best known  expertB of the Kinemaoolor Company,  haa been obtaining films of tho industry, and once they are developed they  will be seen by thousands of people  aa they will, of course, be exhibited  in the houses of the cinema company  refered'-to.  Mr. Sintteninoh has been in British  Columbia for hoiiio time taking pictures of othor departm?nts of provincial aotivity. His company hae an  agreement with the Provincial Government, through -tho Lands Department, for the exolusive right to unher-  take this work, and in consequence of  this, together with the gen?ral appeal  of the work and Ub objects. Mr. Sint-  zonich has experienced the greatest  courtesy in his efforts to seoure the  best possiblo representations of the  active industrial lite of thc provinoe.  The nioturos, whioh are designed In  order to show all the phases of the  fruit growing industry in tho provinoe  include all kinds of demonstration  work, and also all the phases through  which the fruil passes on its way from  the producer to tne consumer. From  the first planting of tho trees to the  final packing in every detail. Tho  loading of fruit in transit for. the railroad is added aa a finishing touch.  Will Report on Water  Powers of 6. C  The Commission of Conservation for  Canada, whioh has been currying on  extensive investigations in British  Columbia for some time both in 10-  gard to forestry and water powers,  is about to cease work for the present,  season in regard to the latter department, and it is possible that, js a  result of the work carried on during  this year, the report of the Commie-  nion may be drawn up and submitted  to parliament.  In diseussing the work of the Commission in relation to water resources  Mr. A. V. White, who haH spent the  best part of the year in tho province  said that the work of the Commission  and the Lands Department of the provincial government has resulted  in the gathering of an immcnio \ol-  umo of valunblo information 'o.icern-  ing the aggrogato amount of water  in the province, together with its various capacities. The Beason now closing is likely to jbe the last devoted to  this subject in the province, us, in the  opinion of Mr. White, the subjeot is  well nigh exhausted, and ho believes  that the commissioners will proceed  with their report upon the material in  hand at the closing down of the present year's work.  "We have had an arduous time/'  said Mr. White, "but the end is now  in sight, and as a result, llie peoplr  of British Columbia and the people  of Canaila, and of the world generally, will be in a position to know exactly how this part of the country  stands iu relation to wator resources.  Lack of this information in the past  proved a great 'handicap in every  direction, but now that it is about  to be compiled in the form of a report for general perusal, fr ought to  act as a powerful agent in the hastening of settlement of the undeveloped  areas, and also In the establishment  of wage-paying concerns for' th�� province, i  The council meeting Friday hst v. as  attended by the Mayor and Aldermen  Calder, ..Copeland, Cosens, Taylor and  Thompson.  Qr. fioyce applied for permission to  move the old Willits building ^m its  present Bite to the corner- near the  Presbyterian church. *"  Chief Engineer Colquette who was  present pointed out that the removal  would necessitate tho cutting of several electric wires and the council pun*  sed a resolution granting permission,  provided none of the primary wires be  out, and that all alterations of any  kind be paid for by Dr. Boyoe.  Dr. Boyce also asked that a filing  cabinet be purchased for the police  magistrate's office. The clerk was instructed to see that this was ordered.  Mr. H. W. Eaymer in a letter protested against the water charges' for  his block on Main street, and .asked  that a meter be installed. This was  referred to the committee.  Messrs Jas. H. Stevenson and 1).  Chapman applied for the use of an  eight-horse power gasoline engine belonging to the city at a rental fcf 820  per month. They would need it for  about three to five months. Permission was given them to ubb the engine. .  Engineer Colquette complained that  the present system of notifying the  staff at the power house of fires was  unsatisfactory, and led to, confusion,  as frequently no block numbers were  givon when alarms .were turned .in. He  suggested that alopH bo taken to rectify this.  After some discussion the council decided to have cards printed to fasten  up over &II telephones in the city, giving the fire block number, or prompt  information to power house in case of  fire.  t P.

The activity of tho company has  been suspended and it is anticipated  their concession would be annulled.  It is stated that the objoct of this  high-handed proceeding is to prevent  the weakening of the army and -tho  decimating of the Galician population by any artificial encouragement  to emigration with which the- company iB charged.  Official announcement is made that  the great increase in emigration whioh  has beon apparent recently is evidence  of a widespread secret organization  for encouraging thc emigration of persons liable for military service. The  Emperor has ordered an investigation  of all' emigration bureaus in the empire.

Tho Zott says thut four government  officials, two of whon ire rm;i'6yed in  the Austrian ministry of commerce,  and many police official, in Galicia are  compromised by tho documents recently seized by the authorities at the of.  The seizure was made in connection  with tho charge that tho agent of tho  company at Vienna had assisted Austrian to evade military srt-vice by emigrating to Canada without passports.  More than 100 arresis have boon  made in Golioia.  Important New Move  In Dairy Industry  DISTRICT INSPECTOR APPOINTED  FOR COW-TESTING  Rutland News  A new policy, whioh, it is predicted,  will have a far-reaching effect on the  improvement of the dairy industry in  British Columbia, is announced by  Hon. Price Ellison. Minister of Agriculture.  Tho value of permanent milk records  has long been recognized by the Cto-  vinoial and Dominion governments as  an actual asset to the farmer and a  benefit to the dairy industry, and after months of careful investigation of  the procedure followed in the principal  dairy countries in the world, ar plan  has been evolved by the department  that, it is believed, will increase the  value of these annals.  A competent inspector, trained in the  science of cow-testing, and a complete  outfit for his operations, will be allotted to every district in the province  pasturing at least 400 cows within certain limits, the cost of his employment  being borne partly by the cow-testing  associations of this district and partly  by tho provincial government. This  work will be supervised by the Dairy  Instructor, and will involve the bonus-  ing of the associations by a sum  amounting to from 1260 to 8500 per  year.  had been discharging rifles on tho lake  which loans aro mado to settlers    to  opposite several residences in tho sou-1   ., .,       .   ,  ,    ;        ,  tt       'A    +v.,.

WinBton  Sponcer Churchill First Lord ol the  British Admiralty, that Great Britain  and Germany should doolaro a "naval  holiday" in 1014 was received without  sympathy by tho German government,  whioh regards it as not calling for a  reply.  'It is generally considered doubtful  Whether any official notice will bo taken of the suggestion, although it is  thought tho Imperial Chancellor may  perhaps refer to tho subject later on  in the course of the debate in the Imperial parliament.  The naval authorities hero consider  that tho proposition that Germany  should not buy any warships while  Great Britain is constructing at least  threo, cannot be discussed.

ELEVATOR COLLAPSED  Last Saturday afternoon with a  crash that could be heard for miles,  the 1,000,000 bushel elevator located  at Transcona, four miles from Winnipeg, which had jast been completed,  nnd filled with 500,000 bushels oi  wheat, sank ten feet on its foundation  then burst asunder, splitting and spilling the contents all over the tracks  and adjacent grounds.  The elevator wus built of steel and  concrete and waB tho property of thc  C.P.R. It waa located at their ntw  out-ofl which runs threo milea north of  Winnipeg. lAUt .this year to enable  grain trains from Fort William to  reach the lake ports without going  through Winnipeg. The elevator had  been receiving grain for less than a  month, and it is believed that the  district all around is underlaid by a  strata of quicksand. The loss to the  railway company will be over $200,000.  . ��   The British West India Islands are  planning to form a confederation.  Thoy are separated from each other  by the sea, but they are alike in climate and products. Under a central  government it is believed they -vould  be more .prosperous.

Meyrick will conduct the  Church of England service next Sunday afternoon in the school houae.  A meeting will be called shortly to  discuss the advisability of starting  the literary society again. All interested will please think up ideas for a  successful session.  A pleasant evening wae spent by  those who were present at the party'  given by the Misses Clever on Tuesday  night. Games, conundrums .and music  made the time pass all too quickly,  and at midnight the guests departed  after partaking of a satisfying supper.  While Everrt Fleming waa flippantly  fooling. with the crank of the motor,  he didn't realize that the sparking plug  was suoh a crank, but after carrying  his hand in a sling for two weeks, he  now approached the crank of a motor  with caution, and respect, he has in  the meantime learned to do quite a  number of left handed stunts.  The school trustees will soon be arranging for the opening of the new  school, which is now assuming a- stalely appearance. The finishing of lhe  different rooms is progressing tepidly  and Mr. Raymer expects to hand the  building over to the school department  in a very few weeks.  The Mount View Methodist' churoh  was visited on Sunday by Dr. Sanford  President of Columbian College, Ni ��  Westminster.  During the course of the service Dr.  Sanford explained the importance of  the College and hoped that the congregation as a whole, would become  interested in the aims and high ideals  as carried on by the collect, staff. The  choir rendered the anth��-m "Fear Not,  0 Land", by Simper, and Mr. A. Crowcroft sang Handel's Largo, "Lord of  tho Night."  TWENTY-EIGHT KILLED WHEN  DIRIGIBLE EXPLODED  Twenty-eight persona were killed last  Friday near .fohannisthal in the explosion and fall of Count Zeppelin's  latest dirigible balloon,  the "L-ll."  The twenty-eight men represented  the entire personnel of the admiralty  board which was to conduct the final  trial of the dirigible looking to | its acceptance by the government as a new  unit of the German aerial navy, the  pilot and crew and invited guests.

Winston Spencer Churchill,  First Lord of the Admiralty, who in  the name of the British Government,  made a special offer to delay the fulfilment of Great Britain's navan oon-  atruotion plans next year if (iermany  would consent to do the aame. Mr.  Churchill's former suggestion of a  naval holiday wns made in tne house  oC Commons on March 27 last in connection with his presentation of, the  naval estimates for the year.  "There is, I fear, no prospect of  avoiding large and continuous expenditure, in the naval estimates," he said,  "unless the iieriod of acute rivalry and  of rapid scientific experiments through  which we are passing comes to an end.  "Of all the nations of the world we  are, perhaps, best able to bear such a  btrain is it should continue. We have  greater accumulations of capital than  are found elsewhere. We are freed  from the need of maintaining nn army  of corrtinetital scale.  "The strength of one's navy is its  strength compared with another. Ths  value of a ship depends entirely upon  the contemporary ship it may have to  meet. The usefulness of naval invention ceases whan it is enjoyed by other  powers. Yet we see the ship types of  every naval power superseding those of  ths previous year. With remorseless  persistency scores of millions of dollars are being absolutely squandered,  while tvsry year all thev naval powers  ar�� meeting not only the fleets of their  rivals, but thsir own fleets are growing obsolete without adding to their  militia forces of Canada it practically  a volunteer force kept up by tho enthusiasm of men who have a taste  for military service. But now comes  General lan Hamilton, nnd says that  this is not enough, The country  must be treated as if it were under  martial law. Every home in Canada  ���more than a million in all��� must  be visited by a government official.  The name of every man liable to  military service must bo taken down,  including both the boy who is just  passing into manhood uud the man  ut sixty who has become a grandfather. A year afterwards, a large  part of this information will bo useless. The conscription roll will have  to be taken all over ugain, at immense expense. And what for? Not  because there in any danger of invasion, but because it is necessary to  gratify military ambition, and to  keep the militia department constantly before the public eye. It  must be recognized that "something  is doing," in military circles. ���Toronto Star.  BIG GRAIN SHIPMENTS  The export of the grain from the  port ot Montreal for the present season will be trom sixty to sixty-five  million bushels, according lo an estimate which hns been made at the office of the harbor commissioner.  The output will 1�� double, or more  than double, the quantity exported  last season, whioh measured up to  rather more than 30,0(M,WK. bushele.  Grain received in the harbor elevators  to date is estimated at 51.000,000  bushels from the commonoemont of the  season.  At the present moment there are  only two and a quarter million bushels in the harbor commissioner's elevators nnd not more than about a quarter of a million in tho Grand Trunk,  so that there is accommodation (or  another million sod t. half bushels.  That the spare epaco. will be over-  taxed is evident from reportb which  have l��en received from inland po*ts.  There wero 20,000,000 bushels in.the  elevators at Fort William on October  9th und the quantity is now almost'  certainly greater.  While the elevators at Tiffin, Oodo-  rlah. Depot Harbor, Midland, Owen  Sound, Point Edward, Port Colbourne,  and Tort Me.Nicoll are packed, grain  is being wnt down to Montreal as  speedily ns possible, but just at present theje is a shortage ot cars on the  Grand Trunk.

After the close of lho sesaioo, thd  minister of finance, with a view to ns-  certaining whether bacteria likely to  injuriously affect the publio i.e.ilth  were to be found on the notes, in-.truc-  ted the officers of the laboratory of  tlie department ot agriculture nt Ottawa to make nn examination of notes  chosen at random trom a number  which had been returned by one of  the banks as being unfit for (tmter  circulation. The report (rom tht�� 'abor-  atory has now boon received. It reveals the (act that a large number  of living and dead bacteria were ure-  sent on each note.  Tha finding of the laboratory, is,  in brief, that there is a possible danger of conveying infection by means  of soiled bank notes.  GOVERNOR OF NEW YORK  REMOVED FROM OFFICE  Mr. William Sulzer has ceased to be  governor of New York state, ,He was  removed from office by the high court  of impeachment by a vota of 43 to 12,  two members uot voting. Mr. Martin  H. Glynn, Lieut.-Gov. was sworn in as  his successor.  Ths verdict of the court was that  Sulzer wns guilty of falsification, perjury and an attempt to suppress evidence against him. Ot all other charges ho was acquitted, thc court unanimously voting him not guilty of the  four remaining articles of impend,  ment.  By n virtually unnnimous vote also,  tho impeachment tribunal decided thnt  Sulzer should not be punished by disqualification to hold office of honor,  and trait in this stnte in the future.  This would have been thc extreme penality under the law.  DUKE OF CONNAUGHT RETURNING  The Duke and Duchess of Connaught  accompanied by Princess Patricia, left  London on October 17th (or Liverpool,  whence they will sail by the'*Emor^  of Britain" for Canada, where ihe  Duke will resume hia duties ae Gov-  srnor General.  A Central News hespatch from Shanghai says thnt a groat firo raging for  five hours last Thursday in a northern  suburb of the city completely destroyed an area of half a square mile and  rendered ten thousand prople' home'  less.  The first woman to sail through the  Panama' canal will be Mrs. George  Goethols, wife of Col. Goothals, to  whom so much credit for-the building  of the oanal is due. Mrs. Goothals has  just arrived at Colon to await realization of her ambition.  Tyco Chinamen employing dozens of  vegetable and small fruit peddlers have  not only ousted out white ranchers  and captured practically all such business in Nelson, but havo combined and  formed a trust which regulates prices  and apportions territory in Standard  Oil fashion.  Miners who have worked the beach  sands at Nome, Alaska (or their gold,  think it likely that the recent storm  that half destroyed the city drove ai-  horo gold-bearing sands that will  moro than pay (or the damage dono.

There is a popular  tendency I  to   restrict the name "toadstool"   to  poisonous, species and that of "mush-  room"   to the edible ones;'   but sinoe '  ono cannot tell, except by trial, who- '  titer a particular "toadstool" is pois-  onous or not,   the distinction, accord- j  iiiR to the  Journal of the   American  Medical Association, is neither   satisfactory nor advantageous.  Many reputed tests to distinguish  the innocent from the harmful toad-'  ���tool am current and are implicitly I  believed in by some. It'.cannot be tco  emphatically stated, therefore, that so  far as is known there ie no single  guide, with the possible exception of  a chemical analysis, whioh will g{vo  results of any value whatever. Any  eeheme for distinguishing edibility ; In  these fungi should be decisive anh  give uniform results. Some of . (he  alleged tests deserve mention in older  to point out their unreliability and  their danger. Among them the So-  called "silrver-test" is most prevalent.  I It is believed that a silver spoon or  coin, placed with toadstools while  cooking will demonstrate by blackening, or failure to blacken, whether  1 or not the fungi are safe to eat. It  j need only be said that there are both  } poisonous and non toxic species,  | which act alike on silver. Again, no  reliance is to bo placed on the con-  i tention that if the outer (upper)' skin  of the top of the toadstool pools off  readily, such a species is edible. Some  poisonous species also will "peel".  Flavor has often been alleged to servo  as a reliable guide to edibility, the  bitter or pep|iery species being charged with detrimental attribdtes. Ex-  porienoe shows, however, that the  most poisonous toadstools are not at  all    disagreeable    in r--"     i     th,e  flttvor of tho raw 'tissues. Other  "tests" are tho alleged telltale color  changes that are supposed to appear  when toxic mushrooms are bruised nr  brokon; or the existence ol a milky  juice, or tho susceptibility ol the  fungi to the invasion of insects.  which are believed to avoid the pernicious varieties. N" of these  "tests" can bo applied with any certainty. As the "proof of thc pudding  is in tho onting thoreof," mo the surest  way of loarninir to dint iniruish the  poisonous from the innocuous mushroom is by eating them���a heroic  procedure���or by   learning the oxperi-  ���  STOKING; ARISEN TOMATOES.  Just as soon ae the average date  of the first killing frost' approaches, gather all the green tomatoes, big  and little, and sort them over, putting  the fairest and largest in one lot and  the smaller and inferior ones in another. Put a large crumpled newspaper in the bottom of a clean wooden t  box,, (a cracker, box is best, because.  ie has no resinous odors, such as a  pine box gives out, that may be imparted to (he fruit) place a layer  of the large tomatoes upon the paper  leaving a apace of say an inch between; then put on another layer of  crumulod newspaper, pr. s.i'n.? it down  carefully into the interstices and all  around the edged, so the tomatoes  may be kept from contact and from  the air, and so on, layer" upon  layer until the box is full; tack ���  cover on, so that the mice may not  attack, them, and set the boxes In a  dry, rool place, such as a fruit or root  cellar.  If they are kept thus at a cool  and even temperature somewhat above  freezing, the time of their riuenlng may  be delayed until beyond Now Year.  It will, of course, be found necessary  to examine them from time to, time,  to remove ripe or decaying fruit. To  wrap each one separately in a piece:  of paper makes the examination more-  difficult, aB each tomato hae to bs  unwrapped to ascertain its condition.  The larger ripened fruit ahould bring  a good price in market in mid-winter.  They should be wrapped separately, or  two together, not touching eaoh other,  neatly, in square pieces of clean, imprinted newspaper, and packed in boxes or crates. Put the fruit in on edge.  The contrast in color of the brilliant  red of the fruit with the white paper,  when this is partially removed, will  be found very pleasing and attractive.  DR.

The great Chinese revolutionary leader is charged with misappropriating in the neighborhood of  two million tool, approximately 1160,-  000, presumably from lho funds ofthe  revolutionary party.  enoe of others. There is no royal  road to mushroom knowledge, but  one must learn to know the various  species as ono loarns to recognize the  familiar plants of tlio forest, the. field  nnd the garden.  CANNING EGGS  Eggs, it appears qui be ciumed without deterioration. The Food Kosearch  Laboratory at the. Bureau of Chemistry, Washington, conducted experiments in j, ;pum!jer��� p? egg breaking  establishments in Order to assist the  manufacturers in canning.perfect eggs  (dr winter u*$, Aoojording to the  specialists of tie department, tbere  no reason why egge cannot be  broken, canned and kept as an excellent'food just the'same ae other pro-  ducteiare canned and kept for uw when  the fresh supply is loer.  Ae in all canning, however, tn* spe  delists have made clear that it is essential that nothing but perfect egge  be canned and that .they be canned  under such conditions ol oleanlineso  and kept in such low temperature,  that they -have no chance to spoil.  Under the new system of canning the  eggs are canned in rooms and with  utensils that rival in cleanliness the  appointments of the hospital operating  room. Everything is sterilised, ind  those who.actually break the .egge  have to clean their hands much as a  surgeon does before operating. Each  egg before being broken ie oandlod  and only perfect egge come Into tbe  breaking room. <  Each egg is broken separately 'into  a* cup. If, by any chance, the egg is  other than first class, it is not dumped into the can but is removed trom  the breaking room and before the  breaker can resume work .he muet  clean her hande and sterilise all th.  instrument, she has used.  The actual breaking is done with  eggs at a low temperature and in a  room where the air is cold enough to  prevent any change in the nature of  tbe egg. Tbe cans of eggs are (ben  sealed and frozen and kopt froreh. until they go to tbe baker at the time  of egg shortage. Through these means  the specialists are confident that good  eggs can be canned at the time when  eggs are . plentiful, thus providing: an  ample supply of reasonably priced eggs  for bakers when eggs mount up ' in  prioe. Eggs canned under these conditions are in no sense to be confused  with the carelessly canned or doctored  eggs put out by unscrupulous egg  I breakers and used by unscrupulous  bakers as a cheapener for their cakes  and other products. * : '  The Home of "Nationail" Stoves .and Ranges  Finest Line of Stoves in Canada  No manufacturer with a lack of confidence in his production will give a positive guarantee.

J CO-OPERATIVE FARMERS' BANKS  A co-operative credit banking law,  applicable to all the provinces, providing clear, plain and simple machinery for the incorporation of co-operative banks in eaoh and every province  of Canada.  This will be embodied in a bill whioh  it is understood, is being drafted Joy  Hon. Arthur Meighcn. Solicitor (Jan-  en.I, and which will be introduced at  this coming sossion of parliament, says  the "Ottawa Evening Journal."  The agriculturalist* of Canada have  Imhmi bettiuging the Dominion irovern  ment in favor of co-operative banks  for the past ten years.  A bill providing for oo-operativs institutions for distribution was introduced ten yeara ago, pasSffJ by the  House of Commons but was killed in  the senate.  Last session Mr. Moghen brought the  whole question before ths House of  Commons in an able, illuminating and  comparative way, which met with the  approval of the entire house, and the  government has decided to deal with  < the subject by a bill to be introduced  this session.  It is estimated that the avsrage rate  of interest paid'on loans by Canadian  farmers is about eight per cent. Ths  total amount borrowed by the Cans*  dian agricultuistf totals somewhere in  the immediate vicinity of $150,000,000,  Rough and Dressed Lumber.  Shingles, Siding, Doors, Windows.

OYSTERS. ABE PBQLIFIC  "The fifth generation of descendants  from a single female oyster would  make more than eight worlds as large  as the earth, even if each female only  laid one brood of eggs."  The above startling quotation from  W. K, Brooks, a great American biologist, appears at first sight incredible.  It is merely a matter of mathematical  computation, however, and is fairly  conservative. Brooks estimated tbe  average number of eggs spawned by a  Bingle oyster to be 16,000,000. Other  investigators have given higher figures.  Assuming half of these to be females,  the number of oysters in the fifth generation would be 40,0^,000,000. A mo-  incut's attempt at imagining this inconceivable sum will show that Mr.  Brooks' surprising statement is noi  far wide of the truth.  This marvellous fecundity ot the oyster and other living things is a great  natural force that man should turn to  account. Its primal purpose is to balance the enormous mortality among  the lower orders of organized beings.  If man betters the chances of survival  of useful animals and plants,* propagation will immediately increase in response to the improved environment.  It is as though, in some great machine  one wore to reduce the friction*' and  devote the energy, previously devoted  to overcoming it, to increasing the efficiency of the engine. As much force  is liberated in any case, but, by wise  regulation, a greater proportion may  btv.profilubly utilized.  BOBBIE  BURNS' DESCENDANTS  Descendants of Robert Burns have  determined to protest the tale O the  Burns manuscripts, to gentlemen in  the United States. That t^e '-aid  should have any desiimdants .'live  seemed a matter of surprise; but it  now transpires that Burns h:u* numerous descendants in various pacts of  the world, who all trace their descent  through Lieut.- Colonel .Tames Glen-  cairn Burns, his third son, who died  1872. Colonel Burns left two  ilniii'liN���! s. Sarah Maitland Burns, who  j married Dr. Hutchinson, and had  three daughters and a son, and Annie Burns, unmarried, who lives at  Cheltenham.

RETURN OF GLACIER UPSETS  PLANS  The unexpected return nf a .'.-.cier ut  Glaoier Bay, on the Alaskan boundary  to its former haunt has upset Uie  tentative negotiations between the Canadian and tlW United States authorities.  An outlet to the sea from Canadian  territory north of Prince Rupert would  have been provided and would have  been of considerable benefit to Canadian interests back of the boundary  strip had the negotiations proceeded.  The location was formerly occupied  by the Grand Pacific Glacier. This  impediment removed itBelf some time  ago, but juBt as arraogementt were  approaching completion the glacier  returned and now constitutes an effectual barrier to the inlet.  BRITISH COLUMBIA  WINS GOLD MEDAL  The final judgings at the Canada  Land and Apple Show at Winnipeg  were aB follows:  British Columbia wins the gold medal for Provincial exhibit of natural  resources and apples.  Province of Ontario is awarded diploma for finest exhibit of fruit.  CP.lt. gets the gold medal for general display of grains and grasses.  Prince Albert board of trade captures district diploma for best hisplay  of grains and grasses.  Spanking by electricity has - been introduced into two small schools 'it  Huntington, W. Va. The two schools  were such in which discipline had -al-  ways been difficult to obtain. They  hnve now been transformed by, reason  of the electric "spanker", into institutions of learning with the best average  deportment uf all the schools in the  city. When the electric connections  were made, unruly pupils began to ask  questions and finally got a demonstration of its ability in administering pun  ishment. The spanker delivers five hard  blows a secood.  The final hearing of the Western  freight rates caBe will open in Ottawa  on Monday, November 24th.

Quite a number  of your uhickens are looking roupy���  must be some draughty places needing  attention! It is time to begin bousing the pujlets now that are to lay  the winter eggs. Egg,, are high in price  now, but will be much higher before  Christmas. Provide them with plenty  of clean nests. plenty of wholesome  food in variety unit abundance ol pure  clean drinking water. A laok of puro  water result* in low egg baskets. Do  not forget the crushed oyster shell,  grit, raw bone, and churcoul. The dust  bath,  also is essential.  Cull nut all tin. old uurl peevish, and  other misfits. Only keep the healthy  vigorous birdii that will prove a credit to the owner. All sick fowls  should he killed and cremated, or buried deeply. IJ does not pay to doctor fowls. Ynu may keep on doing  this until dooms day, because tlioje  you think you have cured, are still  diseased ( although apparently not  so) and will spread further infection.  Ths writer has seen a number of dead  fowls lnviug around, and while this  state of tiling is allowed you may  keep on buying disinfectants for all  time. The sooner poultryiuen realiz��  this fuct the better for them, so long  as rotting oareastes, dr'iul eggs and  rotten eggr, arc allowed lo lay aboul  and be eaten by the other fowls, to  contaminate food and water, pint so  long will disease Ire lurking around.  1 must admit this is not pleaeant talk  neither it is the vapourlngi of a poultry crank, but solid facts, without  varnish. Do not think you are justified in making mistakes because your  neighbor makes them. Start your  winter plant right, in every way and  see that all your birds possess a clean  bill of health and vigorous aonstitu-  tion. A-\-  PRKPAUK MUDS FOU SHOW  If you intend to exhibit at the winter show it is now time to condition  the birds. They should lie handled end  trained at leust three weeks before exhibiting. 1 do not believe in much  confinement, but all the same tho  birds must get accustomed to cooping.  Also to teach them to pose and not  fear handling. These things count a  lot in tlie show room, t'oop those together that are to be mates in tho  show, leaving out the males until two  or three days before showing. Do not  forget lhat a little sunflower st-ed put.  n gloss ori the feathers that cannot  lie rubbed off. A.  \.  <iI.IT AIDS DIGESTION  Pood is ground in the gizzards of  tin1 hen. Most poultrymeii know this,  to lie a fact, and yet in the next few  months, if a trip were made to some  of their winter laying houses, a very  large niimiicr would be found with no  grit  in them.  The muscles in the walls of the  gizzard are strong and work in u rotary manner. This churning grinds up  the grain, providing there is some kind  of sharp grit intermingled with it.  Uound smooth stones are not sufficient.  ADVANTAGES OF FALL PLOWING  Plowing early in the fall liberates  more plant food for the spring crop  and conserves more moisture than  does spring plowing. By loosening  the surface soil, thus allowing the air  to penetrate, the Boil particles which  contain phosphorus, potassium and  lime ure caused to oxidize, whioh sets  free these elements for the plant. Fall  plowing has a tendency to lot the  ruins percolate i'.to the soil better  which tends to dissolve and break up  the complex soil compounds for the  use of spring crops.  Hactcriu, which are found in the  soil in countless numbers, generally  work belter where oxygen from the  air is readily available and these in  I urn break up the organic matter of  the soil into simpler compounds, liberating nitrates or nitrogen for tha  plant, This is one of the most essential elements for the early growth of  Ihe plant. It is often noticed that  spring plowing will not cause crops  lo lodge so badly as fall plowing,  This Is explained by nitrogen being  set free to a larger extent in the loose  porous, fall plowed than in the more  compact soil.  Dy opening up the soil the tall rains  percolate much more rapidly into the  soil, while there is a mulch formed  on the surface which tends to pre  vent the water from the subsoil going directly to the surface nnd being  evaporated. Early tall plowing  makes n reservoir of the subsoil, storing the water for thc crop in the  spring. Often where the ground is a  little rolling the water will run off.  FIRST OIL-IirnNING BATTLESHIP  The battleship Queen Elizabeth, the  thirteenth British Vessel of the Dread-  nuught class to ��(�� afloat, was launched last Thursday at Portsmouth by  Lady Mcux. Thc launching of this  vessel is an occurronie of great signi  fiennce in the history of the British  navy for the Queen Elizabeth iB the  first  oil-burning battleship.  Details of her construction *%ave  been kept secret, but it is believed,  generally thut her armament is to  consist of ten 15-inch guns, mounted  in pairs, whilo her secondary arma  ment of four-inch or six-inch guns is  also to be placed behind protected armor. She will Imj able to firo e,  broadside of IS.iitm pounds of metal,  which is two and a quarter times  that fired by lhe first Dreadnaught.  Under ordinary circumstances th*  carriage of such n battery would i  ply a considerable increase in displacement, bul Ihis has been obviated by  the utilization of oil fuel.  The lack ef grit greatly impairs the  digestive capacity of the hen. Experiments haye beon tried with grit, and  it was found that hens deprived of  grit retained in their gizzards for 13  months the grit which they possessed  before the experiment commenced. With  long use, however the grit becomes  rounded, and passed off-with the droppings.  To insure u proper grinding of tat  food, and a proper digestion sharp  grit ought to be near tho birds all  the time. Oyster shell <or limestone are  necessary in shell formation, but do  not take the piece of grit.

Pegoud, the latest sensation of the aviation world. M. Pegoud  is tho aviator who flies upside down and loops the loop. The photograph was taken at the recent aviation meet at BrookJands, England,  just before Pegoud started up in the air. M. Pegoud was the feature of  the meet and repeated his flying upside down and the loop the loop. He  performed a feat that he had hitherto not done, namely looping the loop  three times from the impetus of a descent of over a thousand feet.  Starting from a great height he dived at a deep angle towarls the  earth. Suddenly the machine turned completely over, with tho head of the  aviator pointing towards thc ground. Flying this way for several yards  the machine then pointed its nose upwards, completing the cirele until  it was right aide up airain Till performance was twice repeated  from the impetus gained on the initial slid*.

CASORSO, Agent.  Dear Sid.��� Salutations! Hope this  finds you as well as I am. How did you  spend the glorious Thanksgiving Day?  This Thanksgiving day is nine a funny thing. We are called upon to give  thanks that we are still alive and at  least one jump ahead ot the constable  and then proceed to risk sudden death  by eating enough to kill an ostrich.  Take my case, for instanoe. Here I  have been living the simplo life (so  simple that it's almost foolish) eating  liulcd (my aud drinking irrigated milk  till I thought 1 was weaned away  from the flesh pots of Egypt. But if  the spirit was willing tho flush Waa  blamod weak. The boss comes home  on Monday night and says "Get on  your glad rags. I've got tickets to a  big feed, to be given by the ladies  of tbo Methodist church and if we are  uot there when the boll ring* we're  liable to be left at the post." We  went alright, and suoh a feed I Honest  Sid, I didn't think there were that  many kinds of things to cut in the  world. Of course you know what kind  of a guy I am. I'll try anything once.  So without any thought of the consequences. I proceeded to lay in a mess  of victuals that would huve put a  lumber-jack to shame. Then to cup  the climax, 1 ate three pieces of pie,  a thing I haven't -done since you and  I went' to school together in the - old  log school houBe down behind the mill  or was it the soap factory? I wish  I could end here,'where nil was lovely  and things hud u roseate hue. But  alas and alack, we needs must continue on to the bitter ond. 1 woke up in  the middle of tne night feeling like  someone hud dumped a load of bricks  dn my anatomy in the region of my  solar-plexus. Things kept getting  worse, until I began to wonder to  whom I would leave the 27 I had  saved.up. But I pulled through after  all, and qelieve me, the dinner waB  so good it was worth all the suffering  afterwards.

More improvements at the Opera  HouBe, Sid. We've got a new system  of heating, and a good one tod; after  this it will not be necesBary for the  young couples to sit so olose together  to keep warm.  Next Wednesday we show "Robinson  Crusoe" a three reel feature following  olosely the wonderful story of Defoe's  This picture ought to please the little  kids, and as far as that goes, the big  ones too.  Forgive me Sid if I wax poetical for  a monent, but I have spent so much  of my life in a country where it iB  summer all the time, that autumn  has taken a great hold on me. it,  imperceptibly the change creeps on  that the woods which seemed but  yesterday bo vivid and beautiful a  green aro today olothed in every huo  of the spectrum.

"Robinson.Crusoe", their beau ideal  of adventure, hat. been made to appear  before their eyeB on the screen of the  motion picture,shows.  It is through '-the enterprise ot the  Universal Film Manufacturing Com-  pnny thut this miracle lias taken  place, .Ml of tho wonders of tho lonely tropical island, whereon CruBoe's  bark was wrocked, are shown as well  as all of the Bdyagti people of that  entrancing land. The weird orjjieB of  the canibals, the rescue of ihe slave  Friday, the battle with the Pirates,  and the details of Crusoe's life in his  palm ihuii'lu-fl house are faithfully  shown. A feature that in sure to delight the childron is the happy family  of animals that holped Crusoe to bear  his awful lonliness until the faithful  Friday came. Theae include the cat  and dog that Crusoe took off the sinking ship, the goats and the little kids  that he domesticated and the parrot  that startled him one day by speaking  his  name.  It is small wonder then that the  kiddies are eagerly acanninh the bulletin boards in front of the opera house  to find nut when the wonderful "Robinson Crusoe" feature will bo Bhown.
