Mr. J. L. Macready addressed  the council on the subject of the  letter, pointing out that it was quite  easy for a thief to lift an article  from the stand at the store entrance  and escape down the lane under  cover of the darkness.  Aid. Calder thought it would be  better if the firm did   not   leave  foods outside the store after dark,  lie matter was referred to the  Light Committee.  Mr. H. C. Seddon wrote asking  the council to open up and improve the road between Royal and  Cadder.avenue, stating that if the  council was unable to grant his request, the road would be impassable at high water.  The Board of works undertook  to look into it.  Inquiries were received from the  municipalities of Vernon and Penticton respecting the salaries and  other expenses of the police department.  The following letter was read  from Mr. R. H. Parkinson :  Gentlemen,���  May I suggest  that you  make some endeavor   to  prevent  the mosquito tfiJi.aiacc thi. ye^^'rEVt-Sie  A tew gallons of coal oil sprinkled over tbe stagnant waters of  ponds and sloughs throughout lhe  city would cost very little and  would be wonderfully effective as  oil spreads in a thin film over th e  crater and prevents mosquito larvae  maturing. In many places by-laws  are strictly enforced compelling  property holders to carry out the  above mentioned and other measures calculated to prevent the  breeding of mosqnitos on private  property.  Respectfully submilted,  R. H. PARKINSON.  The idea was considered a good  one, and the suggestion was made  that it be tried in the park. The  letter was filed for the present.  The clerk stated that Mr. Parkinson had complained of the action  of the pound-keeper in riding over  his lawn after some stray horses.  No action was taken, however.  Mr. Herdsman of Okanagan  Centre wrote offering the city $ 150  for the old hand fire engine. The  letter was handed to the Fire committee.

Censor Appointed for  Moving Pictures  Everyone Should Get on  Voters' List  All who are qualified are urged to have their names  placed on the Voters' List at the earliest possible  moment. Some misunderstanning seems to pravail as  to the need for registration. All the old Provincial  and Dominion Voters' Lists have been cancelled, so  that all who want to vote at forthcoming elections either  Federal or Provincial, must register anew. Those who  fail to do so will have no voice in the public affairs  of the country.  Registration forms can be secured and filled in at  the " Record " office during any hour of the business  day from now until April 6th when the list closes.  Easter Muaic in the Churchea  The Hon.

Mr. A. W.  Bowser, president of the Board of  Trade, took the chair and explained the object of the Board in asking for the grant, urging the necessity at the present time for effective  and well-planned publicity work  to bring in settlers to the district.  Several members of the council  were present at the meeting.  Mr. W. T. Ashbridge arrived this  week in town on a short visit.  Mrs.  Harold   Newby  returned  Saturday from a visit to Victoria.

There was another discussion on  the subject of electric signs. Aid  Taylor said he was in favor of allowing signs to project three feet  over the sidewald ins'ead of two  feet as at preaent provided for bv  the by-law.  Aid. Sutherland suggested that  an amendment be made requiring  all signs to be of no less capacity  than 500 watts.  It was left to the light committee  to draw up an amended by-law  dealing with the matter.  The council then adjourned un  til the following Friday.  and in the evening on  Immortality." The  music rendered by the choir included an anthem "Be is risen,"  by witty, and a vocal solo by  Mrs. Pelton, with violin obligate, entitled "Easter Morn."  Mr. Pearson has shown himself  well fitted for the position of  choir-master by the energetic  efforts he has made lately to  produce the best results from  his choir, and there can be no  doubt that his efforts have been  rewarded as shown by the success of "From Getbsemane to  Calvary," as rendered on the  evening of Good Friday.

Ashbridge's 20-acre orchard  for another year.  1 lie combined choiis of Kelowna  Baptist and Mount View Methodist i Inn, Ins gave a sacred cantata  ou Easter Monday, Mr. Pearson  conducting. The soloists were  Mrs. Pelton, Mrs. Victor Dilworth,  Mr A,Croworoit and Mr. Macfar-  lane. The choruses were well bal  am i il and sung wilh good expression and the evening's "song-fest"  waa enjoyed by those who were  fortunate enough to attend.  Some remarkable stories of big  growth and quick development in  trees in Rutland disirict are being  told. Mr. D. Hartley shows  branch nine feet long grown last  season I This is hard to beat, but,  is an illustration of the early maturing of fruit trees in the district.  Fruit Growers Organizing  Fruit growers are otganizing al  a good many points throughout the  valley, generally, with the object  of improving marketing conditions. There will be a meeting  at Rutland on Wednesday, April  2nd at 7.30 with the above object  in view, and a good attendance of  Rutland fruit growers is looked  for.  Summerland Playera  The Summerland Players gave  another of their delightful entertainments last Monday evening in  the Opera House. Ihis company,  undei the management of Mr. Wm,  Sauter have already achieved many  successes in the way of dramatic  productions and the program giyen  on this occasion well repaid a visit.  " Good for Nothing," a short but  attractive piece with many humorous situations was the first item.  Mr. Sauter, as Tom, and Mrs. H.  Reynolds as the scapegrace adopted daughter showed some  clevei work and were well appreciated.  Mr. T. F. Knox kept the audience  amused in the interval before the  second play by humorous recitals,  chief of which was, " How Bill  Adams won the Battle of Waterloo."  " Waterloo," a one-act play by  Sir A. Conan Doyle, gave Mr  Sauter an excellent opportunity  for the display of his really great  dramntic gift in the portrayal of  the character of the old veteran  who, though feeble in mind and  body retains the liveliest recollections of the great event of his life  when he was commended by "The  Duke " for his bravery.

COME IN AND HAVE A LOOK  The Oak Hall Clothing Co.,  The following story, which is  reprinted from a recent issue of  the "Vancouver Sun" will no  doubt interest many people in  ���Kelowna, for the chief actor,  Bob Violet, lived here for a coo-  siderable time, having been employed by the Kelowna Sawmill  Company.  On account of the many dangers of Massett inlet at ihis  season when the tail-end ot the  nor'easters asd sou'easters may  churn the waters into a stormy  sea almost at any moment, mm  here are required to he unusually expert in the manipulation oi  the numerous craft in which  they go and come.  Some of the small boatsto  the person used to comfortable  aud expensive craft, would appear too dangerous to attempt  a passage of the inlet at almost  any season, but the very height  ot foolhardiness, apparently,  was witnessed here the other  day when a French - Canadian  river driver,. Robert Violet,  crossed the inlet standing on a  log, traversing about four miles  in not only dangerous waves,  but in the ebb tide, which made  his venture all the more dangerous.  Violet's way of travelling has  it on all the rest for downright  nerve, not to mention consummate skill. He made his trip  at a time when no novice with  a small boat would be safe, yet  the new-comer used a log and  an improvised paddle. Violet,  Al Goulet, and Pat Calnin had  been cruising some land on the  west side of the inlet across  from the Woden river. During  the night the tide took away  their small boat. They were  ready to come home, and had it  not been for Violet's agility on  a log they would have been  marooned on the desolate side  of the inlet until they could attract assistance by means of  signal fires.  They were awaiting nightfall,  to build their fires when they  saw their boat returning in the  swift flowing tide, but it was  beached below the Woden river,  fully four miles away on the  opposite shore. It was too far  to swim, and they discussed the  probabilities of crossing on a  raft, but that would take as  long to build as it would to get  assistance, they decided.  Violet came recently from,  Michigan, where he had been a  river driver. Near the shore  in an eddy floated a water-  soaked log. This Violet tested  performing a few fancy steps,  rolling tae log, aod other manoeuvres, to the astonishment of  his two companions. Then,  with a sweep of his pole he  shoved into the swift current  and tide, balancing himself nicely, for, fortunately, he wore  "corked" boots.  In spite of all his skill on a  log, the waves turned it this  way and that, seemingly in an  effort to dislodge him. He ap-  ipeared to be walking on the  waters. At times the log  could be seen, apparently ready  to upend, but the agile Canadian kept his head and nerve at  his strange craft, which steered  with difficulty, rushed out with  the tide.  By this time persons living  near the Woden river had caught  sight of the apparition of a  man walking on the water.  They put out in small boats,  wliich assistance, however, Violet did not need, for with a  powerful sweep of his pole he  turned his log in towards the  mouth of the Woden river, and  there jumped ashore. He covered the four miles in a little  less than twenty-five minutes,  it was figured. He then made  the return trip in the runaway  boat and brought his companions over.  He said if he had been used lo  the inlet waters he never would  have made the experiment, for  it was considerably different  from the swiftest river in his  experience..

Tbe Editor does not nee  aosarlls endorse opinions Qlean belotf.  Saturday'. Plebiscite  To the Editor of  " The Kelowna Record.'  Dear Sir,���  May I have a small space in your  valuable paper (or the purpose of  bringing to the attention of the  public a few matters, which in mv  opinion, should be brought to their  notice. Why should some members of the city council lend themselves to hoodwink the ratepayers  by countenancing a move such as  was made last week by the Board  of Trade. 1 refer to the plebiscite  taken last Saturday, March 22nd.  The Board of Trade at their regular meeting on Tuesday March 18,  discussed the question of a grant  from the city council of $5000.00  On Thursday a public meeting was  called by the council obtensibly to  discuss the question. Only one  person not a member of the Board  of Trade was present, and he as a  member of the council knew of  the'meeting, but I venture to say  that outside of those mentioned,  not a dozen of the citizens knew  anything of the meeting, and on  Saturday a plebiscite was taken at  the city offices, and carried, all  within four days, notwithstanding  that two of the members of the  council were temporarily absent  from the city.  Why this unnecessary haste ? If  the move to appropriate $5,000 of  the tax-payers' cash is a good one  surely time should have been given  for them to think the matter over  and I do not think a snap verdict  is justified.  I understand that $2,500 ol the  $5,000 is for the purpose of paying  a publicity commissioner. I think  that this amount at the present  time is a useless expenditure of  money especially at a time when  it is common with other municipalities to find it very difficult to  finance the ordinary expenses of  civic government. Even if this  were not so it would be better  business if the council were to take  the $5,000 and endeavor to make  the leading thoroughfare in the  city a street such as we would not  be ashamed of. Let us make our  city a pleasant and attractive place  to live in and in due course the  people will come. We have the  land, we have the climate, and we  have the scenery not excelled anywhere. These are attractions such  as the investing public cannot resist, and having them, why tax the  people who are here to death for  the purpose of bringing in others  that cannot be taken care of.  For the past fifteen years Kelowna hss been advertised in lhe  best possible manner. Not by  grants from the city but by the  public spirited enterprize of the  citizens, not only of the city but  also by the generosity of ths fruitgrowers and others of the country  in contributing freely of what they  had for the purpose of making exhibits, first at New Westminster, at  Spokane, at London, at the Vancouver National Apple Show and  various other places. The government has also done more than  its share toward bringing the natural resources of the valley to the  attention of the American continent and also the British Isles, until  today there ia no city with a population anywhere approximating  this city in the Dominion of Canada better known and advertised  than is this. That we are doir I  well now is evidenced by the i  duatriei we have and by the population. The city council of last  year were very generous in giving  ���he Board of Trade an amount of  ,000. if they spend the same  amount judiciously this year they  will have done their duty, but for  heaven's sake don't tax the people  to death.  Yours truly,  H. W. RAYMER.  With the creek full of fallen timber, the prospect of a late spring,  and consequent heavy rush of  water in June, we may expect Mission Creek to leave its channel  anywhere west of Dry creek and  form a new bed for itself either  through the City of Kelowna or on  the flats south of the city.  it appears foolishness to the  writer to sit still and allow a menace of this kind to hang over a  fruitful valley when a small expenditure would prevent it.  Last year a tenth of the money  spent on repairs to the Lake Shore  road alone, would have prevented  the damage done, and this year  the threatened damage is liable to  be four-fold, to roads, bridges and  private property alike.  If anything is going to be  done  there is no time for delay.  Yours truly,  R. S. HALL.  Spring Lectures for  Farmers' Institutes  Mr. W. E. Scott, deputy minister  of agriculture and superintendent  of Farmers' Institutes, has issued  preliminary announcement of  the plans of the department with  regard to the spring meetings to be  held in the various- Farmers' Institute districts throughout the province in the months of May and  June.  The lecturers, who will consist  of the staff experts of this department, together with well known  authorities on agricultural matters  drawn from this province and  from the adjacent states, will devote themselves to the following  subjects:���  (a) Animal Husbandry,  (b) Dairying and Cow Testing,  (c) Veterinary Science,  (d) Feed Crops,  (e) Poultry   Raising and  Egg  Production.  (f) Soil Cultivation.  It is not the intention of the department to provide lecturers on  horticultural matters owing to the  very efficient manner in which this  phase of agriculture has been dealt  with during the winter short course  work, &c.  Owing to the very great increase  in the number of institutes throughout the province, the department  is unable to leave the fixing of dates  for these lectures to the respective  institutes, but this matter will be  handled by the department itself.  Mission Creek Dangera  To the Editor of  " The Kelowna Record."  Dear Sir,���  Please give me space to draw  attention to the danger of a flood  from Mission creek this summer.  In the past the government has  yearly made an allowance for clearing the timber out of the channel,  and making temporary protective  work on the banks; and it was  stated in a recent Board of Trade  meeting that a similar allowance  would be made this year; however  Mr. Hamilton Lang, Supt. of Works,  has informed the writer that auch  is not the case, and that he has not  been authorized to spend a dollar  on the creek.  In British Columbia there is one  automobile to every eighty people.  A furious bizzard raged through  Ontario Sunday last doing considerable damage.  A pullman car attached to the  Toronto Express, was burned to  the trucks thirty miles from Cliap-  leau, about three o'clock Sunday  afternoon. The blaze started from  a spirit lamp a lady passenger was  using in warming milk for a baby.  Omaha, Neb., was visited last  Sunday by a disastrous tornado  similar to tha one which laid  Regina low last vear, A track of  tuin six blocks wide was cut  clear through the city, about 1,500  buildings being destroyed and a  great many lives lost.  King George of Greece was  assassinated while walking in the  streets of Salonika laat week. The  assassin was aGreek of low mental  type, who gave his name as Aleko  Schinas.

Much twaddle is told concerning  Britiah spies. Britons dislike ths word  spy; it goes rather against the grain  when they hear oi Britishers, Britiah  officers, engaged in spying.  Yet spies sre ss necessary to aa  efficient modern navy or army as battleships, fighting men, or guns. Ths  Russo-Japanese War wss won try s  network of spies covering Siberia and  Manchuria.

Then officers always keep faith.  Professional spies sell to the high-  i-t bidder. If there are two bidders,  they sell to une, uud spoof the other.  T'.e I/irds uf the Admiralty were ap-  I r niched as tu plans uf Toulon, Rest  u::d Cherbourg. Carefully checked by  o'floera, these proved tu he only builders' plana, supplied to contractors for  p rtiima of  the  wurk.  Arguments against British officer  sp:es are they look uilicera, and disfavor tricks.  Three years ag" a stalwart cyclist,  w.th camera, pottered about observing coast defences.. "Ou your honor,  are you a British officer P" he waa  asked. "1 am," waa the reply; and  he was promptly escorted out ol tb*  country.  About the same time a well-dressed  gentleman presented to th* sentinel  of Breakwater Fort, Portland, s card  from the admiral then in command.  Complying with the written request,  the visitor was shown all over th*  fort. Returned to ths admiral, the  card was found a forgery.  Formerly sll information obtained  was submitted dirsct tu Secret Intelligence Service headquarters in London. That was cumbrous; it gars  facts away. Consequently, a British  Government Intelligence Bureau waa  established in s northern capital, and  thcr. may he others. It is easier  working in such than amidst hordes  of foreign spies, cat-like, watching  Spring Gardens and Pall Mall. There  are overlooking houses in four great  capitals, whence observation is kept  on the British Embassies day and  night.  Wss It Stale?  While playing iu s provincial pantonine on one occasion, Mr. G. P.  Huntley, the English actor, had an  amusing experience. The stage hands  urgauized a draw for a turkey, and  all the members of the company  bought tickets. The turkey was won  by a limelight man, but ss his wif*  did not know how to cook it, sh*  asked him to put It up again This  waa done, and the next time it waa  wou by a sceue-sblrter, who did uot  like turkeys, so he followed the lime-  ight man's example, and organised  another raffle.  t-ks, and they were always being  won by the stage hands, and flnanciat-  1) supported by the actors and actresses. At last, un the concluding  night of the pantomime, Mr. Huntley  wou tbe bird. By this time it had  cost him over a couple of pounds,  and iu telling the story he has said:  "I took that unfortunate turksy ont  ol tbe theatre, but I did uot take it  horns; 1 thought il sdvisubls to leave  it on tbe doorstep uf a local sanitary  inspector 1"  Amusements  "Charley". Aunt"  The local Dramatic Society will  preaent tlie ever popular comedy,  "Charley's Aunt," at the Opera  house on Saturday night. This  highly amusiiivf. play is built lor  laughing purposes mainly nml will  undoubtedly be well handled by  our local people under the able  direction of A. L, S lames.  One can hardly imagine the unlimited fun opportunities in situations like the following :  Jack Chesury nnd Chiitlit- Wvi k-  h.iiii, umlergr.ids at St. Olds College  Oxford, are respectivi lv in I ve  with Kitty Verdun and Amy Spet  'igui*. Chatlie is expecting his  wealthy widowed aunt, Donna  Lucia Dalvailorez, to pay him a  visit, and he and J.ok seize thc  opportunity of her expected pres  enre as chaperon, to ask the two  girl) to a luncheon parly. At th  last moment the aunt wires to say  that she is unable lo keep the appointment, leaving Jack and Charlie  at their wits ends. A mutual friend  nnd college chum. Lord Francourt  Babberley, is about to play thr  part of an old lady in some private  theatricals, and shows himself to  them dressed for the part. To  escape their dilemma they impress  his services to impersonate tli  missing aunt, which he does with  excellent sucess until the arrival  of ihe real Donna Lucia complicates matters. Other ludicious  complications arise through Sir  Francis Chesney, Jack's lather, and  old Stephen Spettigue, a country  fo'ii iloi and guardian of Kitty and  uncle of Amy, who both pay court  to the supposed wealthy widow.  All through the play promises  merriment and laughter, and judging by the early demand for tickets  the performance will be greeted  by a large audience.  Miss Verna Felton and  the  Allen Players  Kelowna playgoers will be interested to know that we are to have  a visit from Miss Verna Felton and  Allen Players, 1 heir engagement  will be for six nights commencing  April 14th. After an nbsence of  a year the return of this popular  organization will be much appreciated. They are now on the way  to the coast, having played an engagement uf six weeks at Moose  Jaw, and breaking all attendance  records in the prairie country. The  repertoire for the Kelowna engagement is an exceptional one, including such well known successes as  " The College Widow," " Madam  X," " Thc linsiest W.iy," " R^ady  Money," " The Gi 1 iir'thi Taxi,"  and others.  The bill for the opening night is  " That Girl (rom I exas," a comedy  drama by C. 1. Dazey, author of  Miss Robsou's latest success, " A  Night Off." "That Girl From  Texas," features Miss Felton in one  of the most pleasing roles, a captivating young hoydrn nl an Irish  girl.

In the swashbuckling days ot tbe  early part or tbe nineteen tb century  tbe dueling beru In France was tbe  Marquis Merle de Siiinte-Marie, Whole  affairs of honor were almost Incessant.  One ot these is sold to have been so  ridiculous that It helped to set ln motion the current ot feeling that has  since made dueling so much less honorable than it once was.  It appears that one day tbere called  upon tbe marquis oue Pierrot d'lssac,  himself u fuinous duelist. Now, ln  French plerrot nieuns sparrow and  merle menus blackbird.  D'Ihbiic struck himself on tbe chest  wltb emphatic dignity. "Marquis,"  said lie, "I am a Bounpnrtlst and you  are a royalist. Moreover. I am the  sparrow and you are the blackbird.  It seems to me Hint there is one bird  of us too ninny."    f  "I quite agree with you. monsieur,"  politely replied tbe marquis, "and my  choice Is pistols, nnd, us Is appropriate  for birds of our species, let us fight lu  the trees."  I'lerrot d'lssac was ugreeublc to this  unique .suggestion, uud as If it were  nol a sufllclently ridiculous thiug thill  one man should challenge another because bis name was Sparrow and tbe  ithef Blnrklilril the duel was actually  fought from trees. Tbe seconds stood  on the ground below.  At n given Blgnfil the pistols were  IIred, and there was a rustling among  the lea res of one of tbe chestnut trees.  Pierrot d'lssnc came tumbling to the  ground "like n ripe chestnut," ns one  of Sninte Marie's seconds expressed It.  whereupon Merle de Salnto-Mnrie ln  a facetious mood began to chirp triumphantly In Imitation of tbe song of  Ihe blackbird. LV Isaac walled till he  had' recovered from his wound and  then challenged Salute Marie for the  chirp.  This time there was nothing amusing about the encounter. It was  fought with swords, nnd Sninte-Mnrlc  was badly wounded. Tbe sparrow had  avenged fftmsetr on the blackbird.���  New York Herald.
