The  lady who is the fortunate winner of  this instrument, will indeed hive cause  to be proud of having in hi r | obsession such a beautiful piano.

This is a question that will naturally occur to those who read the announcement. Of course the expense of  conducting the contest and furnishing  the valuable prizes will involve a ureal  expenditure, and it will pay��� not in  dollars and cents, perhaps��� but there  arc* other dividends which newspapers  earn, other than profits expressed in  terms of money. During the contest  there will be a great number of people who will join the Record's large  family of readers and there will be satisfaction in all uf that, and again tho  widespread publicity that will be gained by giving the valuable awards are  the anticipated dividends. The contest  is sure to merit and receive hearty  support of (he public, ami contest candidates are guaranteed generous treat-  men I wherever their endeavors may  take them. There will be no luck or  good fortune attached to this contest,  there will be no way in which one  candidate may outguess or outwit,  their opponent, as tne work accomplished by eneh candidote wi 1 alone  determine their success. No candidate  can have any more chance than another, a-> is the case in many contests,  and each one will be rewarded according to the work performed within the  limit of the schedule of awards.

Willi regard to Infootour cases he  would like to point to the clause of  the health bylaw that all such cases  should bo reported at once to the  chairman  of the  sanitary  committee.  The general scavenging of the oity  luring the year had been quite an  improvement on tho previous year.  There was still room for a good deal  f improvement; but thev were gutting  along all right. The conditions of the  back lanes were better than I bey were  last year. Some people threw slops  out of the windows in the back lanes;  and in some cases this was still being  lone. There h ml been quite a tow  complaints about the way tho soaven-  her was doing his work; but thoy had  come to the conclusion that it was  not the fault of the scavenger but tho  poople themselves.  Alderman Taylor then took up tho  sewerage question.  (A voice: How many connections  havo you got for our $00,000 plant?)  Mr. Taylor: "There would bo 51 connections if everyone were connected up;  but at present there are 28, Several1  people have asked to have the work  postponed loiti! spring.   *^  Nineteen hundred and fifty feet of main  sewer had boon constructed and 2,860  foot of branches in lanes-the latter  as local Improvement.  Taking up Alderman ('alder's remarks about the gravel used at the  disposal plant, the speuker said that  that from the city's pit was only ordinary gravel. It may bo very good���  but if a callable engineer told him that  it was not suitable he would not  tell him that he was wrong. The gravel at the city's pit would huve had  to be screened and washed, then the  cost would not have been any different  from tho crushed rock which was used.  Crushed rock was necessary for tho  filler beds and any small stuff was  used for the ImholT tank. The Tm-  hoff tank was a piece of very special  work and mil' the very finest material  could be used in its construction. It  had to rosisl n very heavy pressure  nnd the corrosive action of acids contained in the sewage, and any defective material might mean that all  their work would have (o be done over  ngain.  Mr. Tax lor Indulged in some sarcastic remarks respecting the fence round  the disposal plant. Naturally he said  they had to have a fence to  keep out  cattle.   II    Would   be   useless   to     gO     to  tho expense of a disposal plant and not  take precautions to prevent entile get-  ling in and doing damage.

They know that we  have the goods and that Our Prices are not only honestly reduced, but are cut so deep, that all other  competitive attempts pale into insignificance when compared with the tornado of Money-Saving Items  found here.  And not a single line of merchandise in our large stock has been spared from the price cutter's axe.  Nor is this a sale of odds and ends and last season's left-overs, but a Genuine Bona-Fide Inventory Sale,  during which the price on every item in our stock has been cut to the quick with the sole object in view to  make it move out of the store at almost any price rather than carry it over until next season.

(Applause.)  It   is  Interesting  to  note with  reference to water and light, that last year  1 j there was a profit  of 85,500, that     is  pute I ,ftor paying running oxponsea and in-  : about the assessmeni.    We hope    to  got this oul much earlier ihis year  than before. Owing to the assessmeni  having been delayed wo got h is taxes  in and we had to pay a high ate  of interest on a current loan This  Current loan has been costing IH about  $200 a month. If the taxes had ronin  in sooner we would have saved this,  Hut the position was this. Most of our  townslto has been sub-divided recently  and at the present lime I here arc  something like 1000 lots, which meant  1000 entries in the assessment roll. Allowing ton minutes for each entry one  could well sec the atnounl of work this  entailed. Since the financial stringency came on there have been less subdivisions made and fewer lots consequently placed on the market, so I  think at Ihe beginning ol this year  we can advantageously adopt the assessmeni roll of 1013. Probably ih.re  fore you will lie called upon to pay  cour taxes about the first of July.

MAYOR JOXKS GETS ENTHUSIASTIC RECEPTION  Mayor .Tones in rising to address  the meeting, met with a splendid reception. Ho expressed his satisfaction  nt tho large amount of interest that  had been manifested in the meeting,  the attendance bein" even groater than  ut the bumper mo .i.i,; thoy had last  year. There had been one point thai  hud not lut-n referred to by any of the  previous speakers, and that wus the  excellent music they had cujoyed in  tlio pnrk last summer. (Applause.)  His worship referred to the splendid  order that had boon m a'mtained  throughout the oity during the past  year, not withstanding the very largo  number of railway const met ion men  that had passed through the oity during that period. He also mado refer-  oncw to the splendid Bhowing in the  building inspector's report and the  very large increase in building permits  over previous years.  lie would not occupy their time in  going further into the excellent report  made by the sohool trustees. Their  work had now grown so important  that it would lie almost necessary for  tin*in to havo a whole evening to them  solves in order io plaou tho school  ma 11 or a before the public another year.  They win*�� proud of their schools and  especially the satisfactory results of  the last examinations.  He was vory sorry that Alderman  Co /eland  had not  sufficient  time     to  deal with the good work he had done  during the year. Alderman Copeland  had been an excellent street man, and  had made the best use of the money  nt his disposal.  He pointed out that the city now  had to miles of streets, which if placed  end to end would stretch bom hero to  Armstrong.  , With reference to water nnd light  Alderman ('aider had told thorn they  had put in three miles of pipe this  year. There had also been tw.l.e miles  of electric light wire laid ru -resenting  00,900 feet. Their waterworks system  now extended over twelve and a quarter miles.  j "Alderman Sutherland has referred  very fully to tho financial statement.  We were obliged to borrow somewhere  about 804,000 through private loans  during the year. We woro fortunate in  Alderman Taylor negotiating a sale of  j810,000 worth ;.E ti per cent., bonds  at !iii in the old country. Wo  have on hand $193,000 unsold bonds;  against that we have already ��131,897  borrowed, so we have a healthy margin if we could only dispose of our  bonds. I would like to mention here  that the bond market is looking up  , (Applause.; We have had more offers  or enquiries durin: the last three  weeks than nearly for the whole of  I tho year. 825,000 of those Ion Is arc to  be taken up. but it is not expected  that we will have the money for these  until   March.  "Our prosonl position has been quite  .fairly put by Alderman Sutherland. No  ,council could have n better man than  this alderman; thoy appreciated him  particularly in times of stringency like  I those they have gono through; and 1  am sure no council on which Alderman  Sutherland has ever sat his npprodat-  him more than the council of 1013.  (Applause.) I em say exiaotly the  same of Alderman Taylor. He is an  excellent man in committee and some  of tha private loans havo been through  his instrumentality, I want (o give  credit where credit is due. (hear hear.)  Wo have no persona' fvlinr against  any of tho aldermen; our relations  have been most pleasant and harmonious."  I Ueforring to the nsiessment his worship mentioned that their excess of revenue was, as had been pointed out,  over 85,000, but unfortunately at present tlu-y could not rnli/e on this,  | Turning to the sewerage question,  the mayor remarked thit thee had  [been considerable criticism in connection with this matter. Ho desired to  speak ipute    frankly    on    the subject.  There was nothing to hide; everything  that had been done was open and  above board. With reference to Canavan & Mitchell's contract, the council  started figuring on a sewerage system  in the year of 1911. Alderman Sutherland and himself had given a lot  attention to this matter and had discussed it with engineers. The reports  of four engineers practically agreed to  tho same kind of system. One wanted to  place it in the park (laughter), but  this for many reasons was found to bo  impossil'Ii'. They found that the contract of Canavan k Mitchell was the  fairest contract they could got, and it  .was moved by ox-Alderman Unymor  and Blackwood that this COUtract ho  accepted, Kx-Alderman Millie was on  the council at tho time, but he never  raised his voice u'jnin-d that contract  Kvory alderman Rpoku in the highest  terms of Canavan & Mitchell.  | With regard to tho wages of the men  hu never knew there was any misapprehension in the mtnds of nnv ptr on until Alderman Colder brought it up in  committee, lie had bocil told that exception has been taken to tho rate of  83 per duv for the men and that  this was higher than any other concern were pav.ng at tho time; but it  was impossible to get men at Iosb th'uu  Sll per day which was the same rate  as had been paid for the last two or  three years.  I "Two weeks a.o in commitle1, Alder-  i man Caldet* had raised certain objections to standing again, and for tfom<*  lime continued the mayor, I endeavored to find out what  these ob:oot:ons were. Kvm'urlly Ml*.  ('aider stated his objection to ti/iin  standing for alderman was owing to  the contract gi.cn Canavan & Mitchell  who he said wee to draw 10 percent  on the cost of the sewerage plant not  merely for the work actually done but  until the whole system was completed.  Such nn iniquitous contract as this,"  said the mayor with considerable  warmth "would only have been entered  in t o by fools, The con t ract only  had reference to the main system and  disposal plant���that was as far as it  went���and they could not get any  I hotter terms from any other engineers  than thoy got from Cnnnvan & Mitchell."  ! With regard io Co haulinr of the  water from Pendod s'reo', this would  only amount to nl out "> or 7 cents  n day to t'unavan & Mitchell, und tho  speaker BUpposed this lasted about a  week, (lautrhtor.) Canavan & Mitchell were behind their work and hail  throughout mod only the b st material.  Referring to the question that had tensions of tho system would be paid haH erected here during the present  been raised about the gravel his wor- for by the property owners benefited, year. It was necessary however, that  hp remarked that when Mr. Tucker (A voice.-��Did the city council get the eitv grant a free site for the bud-  discussed this matter with the council an estimate from the engineers?'*) (ding The city possessed only two  nnd when he explained his xiews thoro His worship:- Yes.

The  site considered most suitable was   in  a corner of the park fronting on     Abbott  street and close to Mill     ureok.  If it  should happen that  a poll    was  necessary on Thursday nuxt, the council intended to submit  to the doctors  the question as to whether thoy should  grant     this site     to the government.  There would bo no serious interference  with    the park as only a small     piece  of between a half and ono aero     was  needed,    and ho thought that if     tho  young  men interested  desired  it  thoy  hould try to accede to their "wishes,  Ue also paid a high compliment to  the efficiency of the city office stall,  mentioning the name of Mr. (J. H.  Dunn, the city clerk. He also referred  to the splendid services of Mr. D. ff.  Crowley, Mr. 1*. E, Taylor, and Mr.  Collet t of the parks commission, and  tho good work of the police and licence commissioners, also to the press  for thu fair manner in which they had  treated the council during 1913.

But it is not no popular from  a literary standpoint nn il in from iti  moral and apiritutil teachings.    It was  the aim of Rev. 1).  J,  Welsh to ihow  up  the literary qualities of the book  of books nt I lie woakly mooting of tho  Young People's Society nt the Baptist  church  on Monday.     Hi.* subject was  "The    Bible    as    literature,"  and ho  pointed   out that    groat ns was   the  fil'fiee the Bible held, not only In   our  land, but in the civilized world it had  'gained    that    distinction    on    other  grounds than ils literary merit.     Hi  firmly believed that  the Bible    would  .never have the high'place it ought to  'have in the pulpit, in the.home and in  the hands of    the seeker after     truth  until it  was recognized thai as literature it  is without  a peer in all    \the  literature of the world; and until     it  was discovered that Clod, in giving re*  message to mankind���the greatest   rep-elation of nil time���so ordered   that  it should never be surpns.wKl     in    the  j beauty nnd simplicity of its form. To  jinost people it would come as   a surprise that the Bible was made up   of  epics,  lyrics, dramas,  essays,  sonnets,  philosophical works,  histories or     the  like.     The robbing <>f the Bible of its  external    literary    form had rendered  most difficult  the work of dintinguish-  ing    these phases,    yet   careful    work  'amply repaid the earnest student,   for  it   was  an undisputed  fact   that     the,  literary  form    was an essential  guide  ,to the matter nnd spirit.  Mr, Welsh then proceeded to deal  with two forms of Bible literature���its  dramatic and lyric forms, instancing  the book of -lob in the case of the  .former, and pointing out the grandeur  of the conception of this book; and  , the Psalms in the case of the latter.  The books containing the prophesies  also came in for attention, pointing  out the beauty of their literary form,  the prophecy of Tsainh being given  ns an example. A hearty vote of  thanks was accorded Mr. Welsh for  his lecture.  Sti\i week there is to he nn open  discussion on^ho relations existing between the United States and Mexico.

There was a good attendance though  nut so representative as the occasion  demanded. A number of ladies were  pivsent and followed the proceedings  with great interest.  The rector presided and rend his report for ihe year. This was most  gratifying as it showed a great increase in the number of baptised members and communion n to. There is a  considerable increase in the attendance i  at the Sunday services since ro  moval into the new church. Tho  Churchwardens, the choir, Women's  Auxiliary, Chancel Guild and C.K.M.S.  were thanked for their work during  the pnsl year. The new organist, Mr.  W. II. Parker, comes to ua with  varied and highly successful record  as organist and choirmaster. It is hoped the congregation will give him ev-  ry assistance and encouragement in  his work. Mr. (I. Slater has been licensed ns Lay Header by the bishop.  Ho will have charge of the services at  the outstntions, until a successor to  the Uev. C. IL Meyrick is appointed.  The ruslgnatlon of Mr. K. E. Denison  as people's warden, and of Mr. TT. T.  Veugens, envelope secretary were received with mnny expressions of regret.  The Churchwarden's report was read  by Mr. I.. 15. Taylor. It showed that  if all outstanding subscriptions to the  end of the year were paid up the parish could be<rln tho year without any  debt in connection with the running  expenses.

Dear Bir.���I feel it iu due in justice  Lo a valued employee of the city council,  Mr. Sabine, whose position     and  character were    so wantonly attacked  by Alderman Gaidar at the public meet  ng on Saturday night, to make    the  following statement.   I only regret that  through an oversight  I did not    controvert Mr.  ('alder's base insinuations  on    Saturday    night.      In short, Mr.  Sabine's duties are not so short   and  sweet  as Mr.  ('alder  would have people believe.      His dally schedule     demands, and 1  have reason to     know  he faithfully carries out, as follows:���  A daily inspection of all  manholes on  the sewer route; this means in    many  cases,  removal  of obstructions,     and  seeing    all  flush    tanks    arc working  properly; then to the pumping station,  nnd clear tho screen of all extraneous  matter, principally rags which    would  atop the pumps working, and on more  than a dozen  occasions  he has     had  to take the pumps apart   and remove  obstruction,   this  at a   depth     ol    20  feet, in    an  atmosphere which is     at  least unpleasant. This is no sinecure and  it is not generally known that on one  occasion  when  overcome with noxious  trases, Mr. Woodman fortunately found  him  in  time to elfect n  rescue.    This  being done he takes the \r\p ns stated  by Mr. ('alder,  to the tlisposal works,  where he has to mix,  nnd see in proper  working  order,  chlorinating   tank  and then see that all nozzles on     the  distributing fountains are clear and in  proper working order;    on several occasions this has meant  hours of work  In freeing nozzles from grease and fat  which has been improperly emptied into the sewers.     As you will sec there  is a wide difference between what   Mr.  Sabine actually  does  and  what      Mr.  ('alder grudgingly states.  Thanking you  for the  insertion     of  this. Yours respectfully,  F. A. TAYLOR.  Chairman Health and Sewerage Committee.  JANUARY  Basket Ball  R. W.

On Monday night at the close of  ikating    session    some   ten or twelve  ocal boys took possession of the floor  at the roller rink for basket ball practice. The building was fitted up last  week with brackets and all n>cessary  equipment for a fine basket baft court  and on Monday night the first practice was called. Those present wore  divided into two teams and a good  workout indulged in. None of the  players were able to go at top speed  for any length of time, however two  In minute halves took place, aftei  which all were ready to retire to the  rest room. It was apparent that Kelowna has splendid material for ��one  of two splendid teams and when the  other players turn out no doubt another team, and perhaps two will be  put in the field. Another practice  will be held on Friday evening and as  often as possible thereafter until the  players are in condition for a full  contest. A schedule will be drawn up  and the first game will probably take  place the end of the present month.  The rink affords ample space, a good  floor and in fact an ideal place for  the sport with possibly one exception,  the side, where only n railing has  been placed to enclose the skating  floor, thus allowing the ball to get  over or under tho railing and out of  play, however when the players got  down to work, the passing will be  more accurate and fumbling leas, thus  avoiding this difficulty to considerable  extent.

A public meeting of the persons interested in storing tho water which  runs lu waste in spring from Scotty  Creek, was held in the school house on  December. 30th, 11113, when resolutions  were passed requesting the government  to supply data as to the cost of stor-  j ing, etc.  Mr. M. Ileivron, who was voted to  i thu choir, outlined the objects for  which the meeting was called, after  which the secretary, Mr. 0. M. tffttt,  'read portions of the bill entitled 'Tub  1 lie Irrigation corporations" and after  , considerable discussion the following  resolutions were adopted:  Resolution I,���"Whereas the conditions under the present division of the  available water from Sootty Ci\ck and  'its tributaries and the uncertainty of  ! water at the time when most essential  I for tho profitable growing of fruit and  'vegetables ami the carrying out of intensified farming generally are retard*  ling the development of the district and  ��� leaving many acres of land undeveloped.  Therefore, be it resolved that we, the  (property owners of the Scotty Creek  | district in mooting assembled this 30th  day of December, 1013, deem It expedient to take steps looking towards  the formation of a water district along  the lines set forth in the act proposed  by our government at the last session  of the house, and which we understand is to be further modified and  1 passed at the coming session of the  provincial legislature.  Resolution 2.���''Resolved that we petition the provincial government to  supply, without delay the necessary  engineering data that will give ub the  cost of storing sufficient water at or  near the headwaters of Scotty ('reek,  and the distribution of same to servo  the irrigable acreage within the following boundaries; viz.- W. \ sec.

Annual Meeting of  Farmers' Institute  The nnuat meeting of the Kelowna  Farmers' Institute look place on the  11th inst., in tho Hoard of Trade building, but only a small percentage  of the members attended. Mr. J. E.  Rtioklo presided and in tho course of  his address, drew attention to tho  comparative inactivity of tho Institute  luriiiir the. past year owing largely to  the demands upon his lime made by  the flrowors' lv\change of which, also  was presidenl. He pointed out that  Uic membership had Increased during  the past year from "n" to IIS members  thus placing Kelowna in Kith place  m tho l&t of Institutes in B.C.  KITorts had  been  made by   the     department  of agrioulture to secure livestock  for breeding  purposes,   but    the  xpenses un tailed had boon prohibitive.  It was gratifying to mite thai tho  facilities for procuring stumping pow*  lor had been taken advantage of to  tho extent of nearly a thousand dollars  worth.  I'ho forthcoming convention al Victoria would take place on January 26,  and 2S and il was the duty of the  meeting to elect a delegate to represent the Kelowna Institute; Dr. Wans-  borough -limes was elected for this  representation.  The auditor's report showed a substantial balance in the bank.  The election of a board of directors  for the ensuing year followed, consisting of:  President,  M.  Ilereron.  Vice president, (!.  1,. Allan.  l)irectors,-R. L. Dalgleish, K. Bell,  I. I.ytle, H. Hose, A. W. Dalgleish,  '. 0. Prowse and John Leathley.  The auditors appointed were Mr. I'll. Buck and 4)r. Wansborough Jones.  The election of a secretary treasurer  was left lo a mooting of directors,  while a vote of thanks was accorded  the retiring officers.  The delegate (Dr. W. Jones) was ro-  piested to Support the idea of procuring cheap money for farmers.  Mr. .1. I.. Pridham then introduced  the resolution that "whereas peBts and  diseases are gaining a foot hold  throughout the district a more efficient  system of scientific inspection is necessary: therefore be it resolved that a  regular systematic inspection be made  of all orchards and that the maximum  time between visits made from April  to September, inclusive bo not more  than thirty days, and further that ii  the present staff is unable to cover all  tho ground its number be increased  sufficiently to do so, in order that no  time bo hist in putting men in'o the  Held to instruct re hold over cankers  and blight disease."  Dr. Jones moved that Mr. I,. K. Taylor bo requested to ask the Entomological So-ielv to make investigations  with a view to seeing whether there i>  any possibility of bees carrying in  fection from infected trees in this dis  trict  and storing it  in their hives.  It was also moved that the ^legate  to the convention sho'.ild represent to  the authorities the necessity of having  tho  Canadian  thistle o\lerm'uuted.  Mr.  -I. I..     Pridham    then proposed  that the following letter should be sent  as representing the views of the meeting to the minister of lands:  to tho Hon. W. K. Ross.  Minister of Lands,  Victoria, B. C.  Dear Sir.���The contents of this letter were passed at a meeting of our  Institute:  We should he glad to hear from you  as to what stops are being taken to  facilitate the advancement nf bringing  before the public here your proposed  Irrigation Act, previous lo its being  submitted to parliament, as we understand it Is your wish to do so; we  also learn through the press that a  committee has been appointed for this  purpose. Wo would ask if you will  kindly give instructions to the members of the committee to hold a public  meeting in Kelowna as soon as possible, giving duo publicity to tho same,  so that any suggestions on the Act  may be forwarded voU before the Act  is brought up in the House.
