Morris, time check sewerage  The correspondence wa*  taken up the first letter containing  the resignation of W. D. Stoker,  fireman at the powerhouse. This  waa referred to the light committee.  The condition of Abbott street,  which was the subject' of a letter  of complaint from a resident last  week, came up again before the  council in the shape of a claii  for damages sustained by running  an automobile into a aandheap.  The claim was stated in the following letter from Mr. R. B. Kew i���  " 1 am requested by Mr. J. Levitt  to claim from you the sum of  $39.75 for damages to his automobile caused by your action.  Until lately Abbott street between  Lake and Park avenues has been  in a passable condition. You  have recently made changes which  make it impossible to deviate from  a narrow roadway in the centre  without falling into holes or running into sandhills.  "On the night of August 5th,  Mr. Levitt was riding in his auto,  mobile at one of the worst places  near Mr. Hayman's house, when  he met a vehicle drawn by a horse,  and on meeting it he turned out to  the left as he is compelled to do  by law. The result wa* that he  ran right into a big sand heap, tore  one of his tyres badly, and generally shook up the whole machine  I may say there were no red lights  or other signals to warn Mr. Levitt  Mr. Levitt claima $39.75 as foi  low*:���  Cost of new tire - - $35.00  Repairing and overhauling- 3.75  Extricating the machine    -     1.00  You will notice that Mr. Levitt  is asking for nothing except caah  actually disbursed by him in con.  sequence of the accident and I  therefore hope that you will have  no hesitation in settling aa Dr��ntptly  as possible.  Your* truly,  R. B. KERR.'  The letter wa* referred to the  city aolicitor for an opinion as to  the city'a liability.  The secretary of the A. & T.  Association wrote requesting that  a* soon aa the city water maina  had been extended a* far a* the  exhibition ground* connection be  made with the building. Aid. Sutherland reported that thia had been  already done.  A reply wa* read from the Hon.  Martin Burrell to a communication  from the council aaking for the extension of the government telephone system up the lake on the  ' weat aide. The matter it waa atated  waa being taken in hand and would  be investigated.  A communication was receiver?  from the Associated Board* of  Trade of the Valley enclosing a  resolution passed at a meeting at  Armstrong on July 19th. It had  been decided, the letter atated, to  hold the first snnual Apple Show  at Vernon on October 23 and 24  next, and the Board would like to  have the opinion of the council on  a  proposed civic holiday.    The  resolution ran aa follows :--  " Whereas in view of the action  of the Agricultural Society of the  Okanagan Valley in deciding to  hold an annual apple show in the  Okanagan; and whereas it seems  impossible to get a general attendance at theae meeting* unless  ���how* are held on a definite date  from year to vear ; be it resolved,  therefore that we, the Associated  Board* of Trade, urge a date to be  set, and that the various town* in  the valley be aaked to declare a  civic holiday, to be known a* the  " Okanagan Apple Show Day."  The question waa raised again  aa to how far the council could go  in declaring a holiday, and it was  decided (o consult the city solicitor  on the matter.  A letter waa read from Mr. S. D.  Colquette t'.c engineer in charge  of the power house, advising the  council that at the rate the load  was increasing in electric light,  power, and pumping, the boiler  capacity at the power house in a  short time would be too small and  unless it was increased it would be  probable that the plant would be  shut down for steam a number of  times during the coming fall and  winter. He also mentioned that  another fireman would be needed  after September.  Aid. Sutherland said the committee did not wish to put in another boiler if they could any way  get through the winter without it,  aa it would be money wasted if  they carried out their intention of  installing Diesel engine*.  An application was received  fron, Mr. D. Barnes for a licenae  to establish a billiard and cigar  store. This waa in accordance  with the by-law passed recently  which required the sanction of the  council before a new pool or billiard room could be established.  It waa mentioned that Mr. Barnes  himself was to be the manager and  that part of the new Hewetson  Block was to be occupied.  Thare was no opposition raised  to the granting of the license but  the view was expressed that the  council should make sure that the  business would be well located  and conducted.  Aid. Copeland repotted that the  K.L.O. Co. had aaked for the use  of the city teams to finish the  grading of Abbott Street, the cost  to be charged against the company.  Rutland News  From our own correspondent  Rev. Wm. Vance left on Monday for Winnipeg where he will  spend his vacation.  Mr. and Mrs. R. Sproul and family left laat week for Victoria.  Mr. Johnson and family have arrived in Rutland and taken up  their residence at the Duggan  orchard.  Mr. Hemming has accepted a  position at the store.

Kelowna Entertains Delegates  of Irrigation Association  Convention Now Sitting in Kelowna Most Successful Ever Held  The sixth annual convention of  the Western Canada Irrigation Association opened its sessions in the  Opera House Tuesday evening  last under the chairmanship of the  president the Hon. W. R. Ross,  Minister of Lands for the province  of B.C.  The attendance at this first meet-  ing was the largest in the history  of the Association and included  some forty delegates from Alberta  and Saakatchewan, and nearly one  hundred and twenty from various  parts of B.C., besides many distinguished visitors from eastern Canada, the States and foreign countries.  The arrangements for the reception of the visitors were well  handled and in a very short time  after the arrival of the boat bearing the delegates the waiting'automobiles had borne every one to  comfortable quarters, chiefly in  private houses, in various parts of  the city.  The Hon. W. R. Ross, the Hon.  Price Ellison, and Mr. R. M. Wins-  low,provincial horticulturist, motored down later from Vernon.  The hall waa crowded when the  chairman called the meeting to  order at about S.30. The Hon.  Mr. Ross first expressed regret at  the unavoidable absence of Premier  Sir Richard McBride, and read a  telegram from him in which he  extended the best wishes for the  success of the Convention, and referred to Kelowna as affording a  splendid object lesson of what  could be achieved by irrigation.  Before the meeting proceeded  further a committee on credentials  consisting of Messrs. W. H. Fairfield, Thos. Bulman and R. M.  Palmer, and a committee on resolutions, Messrs. J. S. Dennis, F. J.  Fulton, W. J. Elliott, W. C. Ricardo,  W. Fogo, and W. A. Long were  appointed.  Mayor Jones welcomed the  visitors on behalf of the citv, He  hoped the citizens would continue  throughout their stay to show them  every kind attention in their power.  He might be pardoned for saying  that the invitation which had been  extended to the Association from  the Orchard City had been accepted wisely and the delegates would  see much that waa interesting to  them in the many important irrigation works which had been and  were being undertaken in the  neighbourhood.  He regretted the absence of the  Premier, whom he would have  been pleased to congratulate on  the recent honor bestowed upon  him, but was glad to see the chair-  man, the Hon. W. R. Ross, who  he thought should be the recipient  of a like honor when the difficulties  of the Water Act had been straightened out. He was happy also to  see the Hon. Price Ellison present  and well in spite 'of his recent illness. His absence would have  been a great loss to the Convention,  as few took so great an interest in  irrigation work.  Delegates were present from all  parts of Canada and the States as  well as from Russia and Egypt, and  it was an honor to have in our city  man who had engineered and  financed the great irrigation  schemes which were turning the  desert itno fruit farms. These  were the men who had torn up  the sage brush and planted fruit  trees- true conquerors of the desert.  There was no district in all thia  great province which could show  so much as Kelowna in the way of  this kind of development, and it  would be the privilege of the delegates to inspect the very latest  modern methods. Over half a-  million had been spent on irrigation work here last year, and much  more wa* still to be spent. Lasl  year the fruit trees planted numbered 30,000, This year's figure  would be over 200,000.  His Worship alao called attention  to the local tobacco industry and  the activity of the British North  American Tobacco Company ; to  the several large packing houses ;  and to the cannery, which was one  of the largeat of its kind in the  province.  He hoped the visit of the dele  gates would be a pleasure to them,  and fill them with a desire to  return at a later date.  Mr. F. J. Fulton, K.C., thanked  the mayor for his welcome on behalf of the Association. He had  already had a hurried motor ride  around the district, and the sight  of what irrigation had done for  this neighbourhood spoke well for  the success of the Convention. He  had attended every meeting of the  Association since its inception six  years ago, but could certainly not  recall so good a meeting as the  present one.  The President read a brief report  on the work of the Association  during the past year' and comparing it with similar organizations  over the border declared it was a  credit to Canada to have worked  up such an Association in such a  short time. The influence of the  Association, too, had grown enormously, and he was glad to note  that nearly all last year's resolutions  had been taken up by the government and many of them acted  upon. The finances were in a  favorable condition and he congratulated the Association on the  securing of such an energetic secretary as Mr. Rankine (applause).  He referred with regret to the  death recently of their second vice-  president, Ms. R. H. Agur, of Summerland.  The Hon. Price Ellison said he  was glad to be here as representative of thedistrict at a convention of  so much importance to it, and to  see as chairman the Hon. W. R.  Ross; who had done so much foi  irrigation. The government were  devoting considerable attention to  the subject, and were endeavoring  to get the very best men who were  available to assist them. He mentioned the report on irrigation in  the province prepared by Prof.  Etcheverry, a copy of which, bound  in leather; would be presented to  each of the delegates.  He pointed with pride to the side  of the stage where stood the beautiful Stillwell Trophy, valued at  $1,000 won by B. C. at New York  by B. C. for the finest exhibit of  potatoes, a triumph ol which the  province should be proud.  He touched upon the important  matter of the government taking  over the control of the water supply, a subject which had been  broached at the Vernon convention four years ago. He hoped  same scheme would be forthcoming whereby the government could  take advantage of the billions of  gallons of water available around  them sufficient to water the whole  valley. There was no risk in the  government putting money into  such a business, as land now not  worth a dollar an acre would be-  come to be worth three to four  hundred. It would be a money-  making business for the government and mean increased prosperity to the country.  Five years ago he had declared  his belief to Premier McBride that  there would come a time when  fruit growing would dwarf all other  industries in the province, and at  its present rate of growth it bid  fair to do so. It wns moreover  bringing intelligent wide-awake  people into the province, who were  putting their money into developing the land.  He was glad to see so many  prominent men amongst the visitors, and especially Sir William  Wilcox, who was perhaps one of  the greatest living experts on irrigation, and whose work in Egypt  was known the world over. In  conclusion he thanked the people  of Kelowna for the excellent pro-  vision they had made for the delegates.  Mr. J. S. Dennis, assistant to the  president, C.P.R., was the next  speaker. He had had the pleasure  four years ago of speaking to the  Convention at Vernon, and was  glad to meet again many who had  been present on that occasion.  He indicated briefly some of the  results of the work of the Irrigation  Association, which although young  in years had accomplished much.  As a result of the Vernon meeting  the government had begun to take  steps to deal with the laws relating  to the use of water, and the thanks  of all interested should be extended to Mr. F. J. Fulton, the Minister  of Lands, for his courage and  energy in bringing the Water Act  into law. The work then started  was being carried on in a bold  manner by his successor Mr. Ross.  There were many difficulties in  the way. No law dealing with  such matters as the Watei Act did  could be enforced without causing  friction, and he hoped that as a  result of the present Convention  ihose vitally interested would see  that every possible support was  given to the Minister of Lands in  the working of the Acf.  The whole success of irrigation  depended upon a well-considered  and well-administered law relating  to the use of water. The vast  majority of land in the semi-arid  regions now producing crops  would not do so wilhout the water  put on it. The real value was not  in the land but in the water and  the law relating to the water should  be just as good as the law relating  to land.  He was sure the delegates from  east of the mountains would lend  every assistance in formulating  these laws, and he hoped to be  able to look back to the Kelowna  Convention as having achieved  much towards the attainment of  clean-cut legislature.  British Columbia, he said, stood  at this moment as the most alluring  part of western Canada, and was  on the eve of sharing in that  American invasion which would  people its valleys until every avail-  able acre was occupied. He was  credited with seeing visions but he  believed it was not a mere vision  that B.C. would be peopled to its  full extent from the boundary to  ihe C.P.R. main line.  He closed a most interesting address by adding his own thanks f r  the welcome which had been extended to the Convention.  Mr. R. H. Campbell, Director tf  Forestry under the Department of  the Interior, Ottawa, dealt with the  general progress and development  of the Dominion, ana more particularly with the policy of the  Federal Government in dealing  with the conservation of its forest  wealth.  Wednesday morning's session  was given up entirely to the business of the Convention. The secretary read his report which showed a favorable balance in hand.  He made special mention of the  large amount of publicity which  had resulted from the widespread  interest taken in the convention,  not only in Canada but all over  the States.  In the afternoon Prof. Atkinson,  of the Montana Agricultural College, lectured upon " The Irrigation  of Alfalfa," an interesting topic  which aroused a good deal of discussion.  Mr. A. E. Ashcroft, engineer for  the C.N.R.. read a paper on " Public Ownership of Irrigation Systems," a question which is probably  the most important one under  consideration by the Convention.  He outlined an interesting scheme  for the, formation of " irrigation  districts," to expropriate and take  control the water supply, the government to guarantee debentures  to pay all expenses connected  therewith, and provide for the election of a Board of seven members.  In the evening Dr. Samuel Fortier, Chief of U.S.A. Irrigation Investigations, read a paper on " Irrigation," a general survey of the  subject and the laws which regulate  it.  Mr. John T. Burns, Executive  Secretary of the International Dry  Farming Congress, Lethbridge,  Alta., gave an eloquent address on  the subject of " Dry Farming."  A number of important resolutions have already come under discussion. A motion to form a separate association for B. C. was withdrawn, and later it was decided to  form instead a special B. C. Committee with a local secretary, which  would give special attention to the  particular needs of the province.  A special meeting was also decided upon for December next. Resolutions to amend the Railway Belt  act, to submit water agreemen's  used by companies for the approval of the water commissioner and  Lieutenant-Governor in Council, to  compel water users to keep ditches  free from weeds, and to request  the government to sink test hole*  James Hangs at  Kamloops Friday Last  Walter Boyd James, for the murder of ConBtable Aston on the s.s.  Okanagan, last spring, paid the ex-  treme penalty of the law last Friday morning, being hanged at the  prov*ncial gaol, Kamloops. Hanged along with James was a Jap,  S. Takahashi, who murdered a  fellow countryman near Kamloops.  A. Ellis of Toronto, official hangman, pulled the lever at two minutes past eight, launching the two  criminals into eternity.  A few citizens were present and  the arrangements were carried  through without a hitch. Both condemned men passed the night  quietly and appeared quite resigned to their fate.  Takahashi took leave of his  I friends at the foot of the gallows  and as the rope was being adjusted and the black cap placed in  position turned around to those  present saying, " Good bye, gentlemen, grjod bye."  James walked without any assistance and awaited his end with  stubborn calmness and apparent  indifference. The chaplin recited  a brief prayer on the scaffold and  at the last Amen the bolt was shot.  The doctors pronounced lif-5 extinct and the necessary forrralities  of the coroner's inquest were carried out with promptness, the drop  given being about seven feet.  Dr. Rowe Will Meet  Board of Trade  Dr. Elliott S. Rowe. Publicity  Commissioner of the Vancouver  Progress Club is representing l.is  organization at the Convention  this week. Dr. Rowe his been  sent out from Vancouver by Ins  directorate to study and to familiarize himsell with the cond.linns  which govern development nnd  land settlement in the interior. Besides doing this Dr. Rowe is meeting the different Boards of Trade  and discussing the great need of  community co-operation.  Meetings have already been held  in Kamloops, Vernon, Enderby  and Armstrong, and all these places  have promised to give every assistance to the cause Dr. Rowe is  advocating. Doubtless he will meet  the Board of Trade some lime in  the near future when Kelowna  people will have the pleasure of  hearing this eloqent speaker.  for artesian wells in various parts  of dry districts have also received  the support of the Convention.  For this morning a motor excursion through Glenmore, Ellison,  Rutland and Black Mountain, had  been arranged with luncheon at  the Belgo-Canadian Co.'s camp.  Some thirty or forty cars started  out with the delegates, but alas I  the delegates who were assembled  to discuss the difficulties (tented  by lack of rainfall got more of it  than they desired, and the trip was  robbed of most of its pleasure by  the persistent downpour.  Tomorrow the delegates go to  the K.L.O. Bench, South Okanagan  and on to Penticton, where a ban.  quel will bring the convention to a  close. I he people of Vernon are  making arrangements lomect them  at Kelowna on their return up the  lake Saturday, and complete the  journey from here by automobile. The Orchard City Record.

Irrigation Convention  Tlie Western Canada Irrigation  Association which is at present  holding its sixth annual convention  in the Opera House can after the  few short years of its existence  boast of having achieved more for  the particular cause to which it is  devoted than many societies which  have been in existence ten times  as long. The whole matter of irrigation and especially (he laws  relating to it, while so vitally affecting a large section of the West,  might be said to be slowly emerging from a condition of chaos to  one of comparative order, and  although a great deal of the path  yet remains to be covered before  some of its complexities are unravelled, the humble farmer and  fruit hrowet lu wUo.u water is indeed the stream of life, may comfort himself with the assurance  that some of the keenest brains in  ihe country are concentrating their  attention on these difficulties and  no doubt the time is not far distant  when the farmer in the irrigated  districts may feel as sure of his  water supply as he can be of his  title to the land. Ihis is the goal  for which we are striving, and it is  to help on this day and at the same  time to examine and sift llie latest  modern methods of storing, conducting and using the water that  ihe Irrigation Association holds its  annual meetings.  One and all Kelowna citizens  are pleased and pioud to have ihe  opportunity of doing honor to  those who earnestly and unselfishly  are giving their time to these subjects.  There was a fear in the. minds  of some that our city might be  hard put to it to find accommodation for so many visitors, but the  citizens have responded nobly to  the  call  of  the secretary, and  no  one has had to suffer the least inconvenience. In fact many more  could have been billetted.  Favored with the finest weathei  and seeing the country at its best  our visitors should carry away the  pleasantest recollections of their  trip���and if ihey do not it will nol  be because Kelowna has uot tried.

Heavy Sentences for     M^  Militant Suffragettes  Mrs. Leigh and Miss Gladys  Evans, surTrageltees, were sentenced, at Dublin, to five years penal  servitude each, for attempting to  burn the Royal theatre on July 18,  lo prevent Premier Asquith from  speaking there the following even  ing. Miss Mary Baker was sentenced to seven months imprisonment .as an accomplice.  The sentences of 5 years each  pronounced against Mrs. Leigh,  and Miss Evans were by far the  severest imposed for suffragette  demonstrations. Since the "Votes  for Wornin" campaigners adopted  militant tactics several years ago,  some hundreds of women have received terms of from a few days  up to or three months in gaol for  window smashing, participation in  riots, assaults on cabinet ministers,  and kindred offences, but the present occasion is the first one in  which they have been treated as  actual criminals.  Artificial Rubber  One of the most far-reaching and  startling triumphs ever achieved in  industrial chemistry has been gained by a group of English scientists  after a most strenuous contest with  German rivals. The practical result of the discovery announced  last week by Professor Perkin, of  Manchester University, is that rubber can be commercially manufactured from starch derived from  corn, potatoes and vegetable products.  A phenomenal increase has  taken place in the demand for rubber all over the world, and it has  rapidly advanced in importance  It is compnted that the value of  the rubber now annually produced  is $200,000,000, and of this the  United Kingdom takes more than  half, for which last year it paid  $130,000,000.  A severe electric storm visited  Kamloops last Thursday with  hurricane force. The front of a  warehouse was blown out to the  edge of the sidewalk and many  trees were blown down. It was  the most severe ever felt there.  During the year that the Rainbow has been in commission on  ihe Pacific Coast, no fewer than  sixty-nine members of the crew  have deserted. The provincial  police have been given a description of each man who left surreptitiously.  The 35-foot motor boat, Detroit,  under command ol Captain Thos.  Fleming Day of New York, arrived  at Queenstown, Ireland, last Wednesday after a voyage from New  Rochelle, N. Y., which occupied  nearly 244 days. This was the  second leg of the contemplated dip  of the motor boat from Detroit,  Mich., to St. Petersburg.  The Wise Man  There is a man in our town who  thinks he's wondrous wise; though  he has lots of junk to sell, he does  not advertise. He often says: "The  people must know I'm in the game;  and if they want my doodads,  they'll come and buy the same. To  advertise my jim-cracks won't  bring me trade or scads, for folks  who take the papers refuse to read  the ads. They read the sporting  pages, they read the household  dope, they read what Lillian Russell says of her beauty soap, they  read the wedding stories of joyous  girls and lads, they read the 'Hints  to Hobos,' but do not read the  ads." The large and clammy spiders build cobwebs in his store,  and no one will disturb them by  entering the door. The clerks  are growing whiskers all filled with  fungus blue, and comb them with  their fingers ���they've nothing else  to do. Sometimes a sad-eyed pilgrim, insomnia-accursed goes there  in peace and quiet to sleep a little  verst. Anon a man who wishes to  drop from public view, drops in to  see that merchant and stays a week  or two. But no one takes a bundle to buy things at lhat store,  where broods the drowsy merchant, and all the clerklings snore.  ���Walt Mason in the "Free Press."  There is more joy In a printing  office over the one sinner thnl pays  in advance and abuses the editor  on every possible occasion than  there is over the ninety and nine  who borrow the paper and sing its  praises without contributing a cent  to keep it out ol the poor-house.

At the Opera House  More talented and brighter than  ever, if such a thing is possible, the  Pollard's Juvenile Opera Company  is again America on the fifth tour  of the world and will be seen here  at the Kelowha Opera House September 26th and 27th. It is unnecessary to say that in every city  in which this clever company was  seen during their last tour of this  continent, the theatres will be unable to hold the crowds on their  return visits, for crowded and  wildly - applauding houses was  everywhere the rule when the  young folks came through the last  time. In every city return dates  were played to standing room only.  The Pollards came back this year  with the latest musical comedy  successess " The Golden Beadle "  and " Sergeant Brue."

There was no meeting of the  Board of Trade on Friday, the 19th  inst., an insufficient number being  present to form a quorum.  The atmosphere has been cooled off by several rather heavy thunder storms during the past week,  which were much appreciated.  The dust is once more laid on the  roads, much to the gratification of  the travelling public.  An instance of the increasingly  large number of automobiles now  in the valley was furnished on the  days of the Kelowna Regatta when  there passed through the district  what appeared to be an endless  prosession of motors. Several  motor cycles were in evidence too.  Mrs. Somerset and Miss 1. Somerset arrived from England last  week, and have taken up their residence on the Somerset ranch situated on the west side of Okanagan lake between Nahun and Wilson's Landing, and owned by Bob  Somerset, a son of Mrs. Somerset.  A new road has l>een constructed by the government road gang,  running north from the Rainbow  wharf and keeping close to the  shore of Okanagan Lake for half a  mile. This new road gives easy  access to all the lots fronting on  the lake at this point, and being  bordered by a tow of poplars it  makes a very picturesque and  pretty driveway.  The O. K. Canning Co. are now  shipping green corn and tomatoes,  and canning beans and peaches.  The force of employees was increased last week to permit keep,  ing the work well in hand. The  wharf has also received attention  and the balance of the plank laid,  so that the Aberdeen can now call  here, which considerably facilitates  the shipping of the produce.  A number of the residents of the  district went by steamer, motor  launch and rig on Wednesday and  Thursday last to take in the Kel  owna Regatta. They report two  splendid day's sports, the weather  being most propitious for the occasion, the only damper being a  heavy thunder storm which caught  some of them on them on their return home Thursday evening. Mr.  J. Goldie was a successful competitor in the motor launch races, and  secured a handsome silver cup and  also a decanter set.  T. J. Cummiskey, government  inspector of Indian Reserves, came  down from Vernon last Thursday  to adjust matters in connection  with the purchase of a right-of-way  through the Duck Lake Indian Re  serve by the Canadian Northern  Railway Co. Some little difficulty  had arisen with some membeis of  the tribe which Mr. Cummiskey,  with his unfailing tact, succeeded  in bringing to an amicable adjust  ment. and the C. N. R. have now  been able to purchase the right-of  way required.  Mr. Dobie, Manager of the Ok  anagan Telephone Co. paid the  district a visit last week. The Company intends installing a branch  jine to Okanagan Centre connecting with their main line on the old  Vernon-Kelowna road. Good head  way is being made with the construction along the main road. The  holes are now dug to the Duck  Lake Fruitlands Co.'s property and  the poles set up to the south end  of Duck Lake. The main line will  swing away from the trunk road at  Mr. Watt's property and follow the  old Vemon road to Oyama. At  the Rainbow ranch the branch line  to Okanagan Centre will lead away  and follow the new north road. In  all probability an exchange will be  installed at the centre. Another  branch line to Carr's Landing is  contemplated. The installation of  the telephone line ttiroughout the  district by this progressive company will fill a long felt want, and  prove a boon to the rancher and  fruitgrower, who heretofore had to  travel long distances to get within  reach of a phone, often then to  nnd the line so busy that tedious  waits were necessary. With the  nstallation of the telephone and  the coming of the railroad it will  not be long before we approach  an "ultima thule."

" Well perhaps it is, and I hope so, but really, Mrs.  Housewife, I think our new Gurney-Oxford is partly  responsible for the success I have had lately. 1 was  never able to cook roasts and fowl so well on our old  stove, and as for-h"***1�����*H��Ucuits. I used to tremble  when I went to take them from the oven���they were  so often soggy and heavy. Now they are always  light and beautifully brown, and, if I do say it myself,  something to be proud of."  " That's true, Mary, my husband has said almost the  same thing. I'm awfully glad you approve,of my  choice of a Gurney-Oxford. He approves because of  the saving in coal since we got it, also because of the  better meals he is getting."  " Indeed he's right, Madam���and it requires to little  attention."  " That's fine, Mary. Will you serve dinner in a few  minutes please."  D. LECKIE  -  Kelowna
