The resolution read as follows :-  WHEREAS the Okanagan Telephone  Co, art applying to the new Provincial  Legislature to have their charter emended  to allow them to enter the telegreph field,  conetructing end opereting telegreph line.  in the county of Yale ;  And Whereas this would eventually  mean that tho operation, of the Government Telegraph line would bt so hampered, owing to tht fact of its not having  any local telephone exchange to act ae  foedere, that rather than become profitable  and a paying utility that it would ba still  leee profitable thsn it Is now i  And Whereat tho powers granted in the  charters given to tht Okanegen Telephone  Co. on April 25th, 1*07. chapter 55, ehratt  $1.50 Per Annum.  7, have been found to work to tha disadvantage of tht municipalitits and cities of  tho Yale district and should nol bo encouraged by giving additional powers i  And Whereee we feel the! to give the  Okanagan Telephone Co. the power to  operate the telegreph lint undtr tht conditions of the telephone charter would bt  to discriminate agsintt present linoe operating-in aaid Yale district end to any other  Companies wishing to obtain charters for  that purpoae ;  And whtrtaa the Okanagan Telephcnt  Co. have given notice of a raise in their  long distance lates between various pointe  in tne Okanogan, examples being ae foi  lows : Present Rate, 25c. all points, En  dtrby 35c. /Vein Rale, Penticton to Sum  merland 20c.; 40c to Kelowna ; 65c to  Vtmon, and 80c. to Enderby ;  And Wherett tha advtnt of tht Okanagan Ttltphont Co. into tht telephone  field on the Okanagan hee been attended  with developments of a character to bring  about a great deal of dissatisfaction with  the subscribers of tht eysteme which it  purcheeed;  THEREFORE, we the members of die  Penticton Board of Trade, in regular meeting assembled, do hereby protest against  the Okanagan Telephone Co. being allow,  od permission to amend its charter permitting them to construct end operete  telegreph Unee in the county of Yale, and  that we respectfully request the Provincial  Legislature to refuse to grant thtm the  necessary powere.  Mayor Jonea said the company  had tried to purchase the government system but auch strong opposition had been raised that they  had been refused. Now they were  endeavoring to put in their own  long distance telegraph system  which would result in a fight between the government system and  the company's. It would probably  mean the abandoning of the government line leaving the company  without any opposition.  The resolution was unanimously  endorsed.  The clerk was also asked to find  out when the Private Bills Committee would consider the application as it waa probable that  representativea of the various  Boards of Trade and councils  would wish to appear in opposition to it.  By-law No. 124 to increase hotel  licensea was finally passed.  A report of the engineer and  assessor on the first of the branch  sewers constructed under the Local  Improvement Act was received  and By.law 125 to raise the sum  of $8,000 for the purpose waa  introduced, The sewer in question  in on the lane south of Bernard  avenue from Water street west to  to hotels.  Aid, Taylor reported that the  finance committee had applied to  the Bank of Montreal for a further  advance of $40,000 to carry on  sewerage construction but the bank  owing to the condition of the  money market had only authorized  the advance of $25,000. The committee had therefore made an  effort to raiae a further sum locally  and had received several offers  tht best two of which were aa  follows :���  The Okanagan Loan and Investment Co., had offered to purchase  $20,000 sewerage debentures at 90.  Messrs. Gaddea-McTavish, Ltd.,  had offered to procure a loan to  the city of $20,000 for a period of  six months to be secured bs a promissory note bearing interest at the  rate of A per cent, per annum and  secured by the deposit of $21,000  in sewerage debentures, the city to  pay a procuration fee of I per  cent, and all legal expenses in connection with the transaction.  The committee had decided  that the former offer for purchase  of debentures was too low and recommended the acceptance of the  latter loan from Gaddat-McTavish  Ltd. A resolution was passnd  that this be done.  Mayor Jones ssid it was very  f(leasing to know that we had  ocal concerns which would come  forward to assist the council in  their difficulty and enable them to  tide over the period of financial  stress until the msrket improved.  A resolution was passed thanking  the Okanagan Loan and Investment Co. for their offer.  An extra meeting was held  Tuesday morning for the purpose  of advancing Local Improvement  By-Law No. 125 for the construction of a branch sewer. This waa  given a second and third reading,  and arrangements made for a  I court of revision on January lOlh  following the advertising of the  by-law.  The   following  accounts were  ordered paid:���  White tx Bindon, cash receipt book   46.00  Kel  Carriage  Works, repeira and  ���uppllee ���...    9.40  fttgfjt jfllerty Ctrfetmas  to all our fteaber*  $)tlt on more tuooti, tfjt mint) is (bill,  Vut let it tufjistlr at it brill.

Earl Blackwood, Box I  Board of Trade  Monthly Meeting  Deputation to go to Victoria  on Mission Creek Danger  The Board of Trade meeting  Tuesday evening was a lengthy  one and even then aeveral important matters had to be left over.  A letter was read from the public works engineer, J. E. Griffith,  enclosing a copy of an engineer's  report on the suggested road on  the east side of the lake from  Okanagan Mission to Naramata, to  fill in the gap existing in the road  from Vernon to Penticton. The  report showed the work to be one  of great difficulty, the coat for the  16 miles of road necessary being  $220,000. This included a great  deal of trestle work and bridge  construction. There wat considerable discussion and it was felt that  the idea ahould not be dropped.  Mr. S. T. Elliott said he was sure a  road could be made for a quarter  of that aum by being satisfied with  a littles stiffer grades in places, and  by going over the mountain instead  of keeping near the lake shore.  It waa decided to take up the  matter at the coming meeting of  the Associated Boards of Trade of  the Okanagan, and also to correspond with the different towns interested with a view to dividing  the cost of an independent engineer's survey and report.  In reference to the new lake  shore hotel scheme Mr. W. R.  Pooley submitted the following  in accordance1 with a notice of  motion at the last meeting :--  lhat this Board of Trade,taking  into consideration the pressing  need of proper and sufficient accommodation to serve the travelling public and tourist trade are of  the opinion that the council of the  city of Kelowna would be acting  for the public good and would be  faithfully voicing the public spirit  by making application at the next  meeting of the Legislature in the  form of a bill entrusted to our member to enable the City of Kelowna  to sell or exchange auch certain  parts of the city park at in their  judgement should teem advitable  to a company which haa for ita  purpose the erection of a hotel  fully licensed and containing all  conveniences called for by a high  class trade, either in exchange for  other landa or by purchase, lease  or agreement for aale."  It was pointed out, however, that  this wat not in accordance with  the previous notice of motion  which made no mention of the  park or of the sale of land, and to  overcome this difficulty it was put  at an amendment to the original  motion and in this form carried  with only one voice in opposition.  Mayor Jonea pointed out that  before the matter could be dealt  with by the city council, a vote of  the electors would have to be taken. The council could not dispose of any properly without the  people's consent, and if they turned  the proposal down the council  would have no option.  Mr. Bowser submitted a report  of the publicity committee stating  they had agreed to pay $250 as  half the cost of a write-up in the  Berlin Zeitung and ensuring the  visit of the German business men  to Kelowna next year. The article  on Kelowna prepared for the journal, wat then read and evoked  many favorable comments.  A letter wat read announcing a  meeting of the Associated Boarda  of Trade of Okanagan al Vernon  on January 22nd next, and asking  that resolutions be prepared and  delegates appointed.  A suggestion was made and adopted thai a committee be appointed to draft resolutions on aubjectt  decided upon by the meeting. Aid.  Sutherland, A. W. Bowser and W.  R. Pooley were entrusted with this  work and authorised to prepare  resolutions upon the following:  (I) The dredging of Okanagan  river and lowering of the lake. (2)  The Okanagan Mission to Naramata road. (3) Redistribution of  seats in the legislature so aa to give  the Okanagan more equitable representation. (4) The ettabliahment  of a Land Registry office in the  Okanagan. (5) Asking for con-  carted action in the valley to  secure the improvement of train  and boat service.  A suggestion of Mr. R. B. Kerr's  which provoked some discussion  was also included in the subject*  for resolutions. Mr. Kerr pointed  out that there was a clause in the  Land Act which gave the government power to reclaim one twentieth part of any crown grant for  the purpose of making roads. In  tome respects this had originally  been an excellent idea, but now  where property had been divided  into smaller lots it was liable to  work hardship upon individuals  who had paid high prices for small  farms. He mentioned a case where  aa much as ten per cent, of'a person's holding had been taken for  a road. He thought that where  1 nd had reached such a stage of  subdivision, provision should be  made for the payment of proper  compensation.  Another important matter discussed was the need for protective  work on Mission Creek.  Mr. S. T. Elliott submitted a  strongly worded resolution urging  upon the government ths necessity  for immediate action in the provision of permanent work in place  of the patching which had been  done in previous years.  Mr. F. E. R. Wollaston supported the resolution, recalling the  great damage done in the disirict  nine years ago when the creek had  burst its bounds and flooded th*  lower part of the town. If this  wat a district municipality, ha taiel  lhe work would be done cheerfully  out of general taxes, and there wat  no reason why the government  should not do the same. Thr government would suffer sev r* lost  in the case of a flood by the cutting up of the roads. He condemned the stand taken by the government which required riparian own-  era to put up half the cost of any  permanent work. The authorities  did not understand the position.  Non-riparian land owners were  just a much interested in lhe matter  as those whose property immediately fronted on to lhe creek, in  fact many of the latter would suffer  no damage at all from a flood.  After a lengthy discussion which  showed thai lhe seriousness of the  danger waa fully realized, it wat  decided lhat the matter wat too  urgent to be left to a mere resolution, and lhal a tlrong deputation  thould go down to Victoria snd interview the Premier and Ministei  of Public Works. The committee  appointed were Messrs. Wollaston,  Bowser, Raymer, J. W. Jones, and  Dr. Dickson.  Mr. W. Haug suggested lhat a  petition be sent round the disttict.  He felt sure that every landowner  in lhe disirict would aign it readily.  The proposal to dredge out ihe  mouth of mill creek came up again  for discussion and it was decided  to ask lhe government again foi  the use of the dredger.  Mr. Pitcairn said lhat he had  noticed that the card wilh lhe  notice " letters sorted" had nol  not been used in the Post Office  lately, and suggested that the secretary write the Postmaster lo aal.  why this convenient prsclice had  been discontinued.  Mr. Lionel E. Taylor read a letter from the Superintendent of  Experimental Farms, stating lhal  an experimental farm would soon  be placed in lhe Okanagan. H*  moved a resolution reaffirming ihe  claims of Kelowna to have lhe farm  located here.   This was carried.  Mr. D. W. Sutherland moved a  resolution that the Dominion Government be asked lo appropriate  a sufficient sum in the ettimates at  the next tettion of parliament to  purchase a tile and erect a Pott  Office in Kelowna, a proposal  which wat unanimously agreed to.  Mr. F. R. E. DeHart raised a  complaint against r charge of one  dollar made by the C. P. R. for  twitching cars, and the secretary  wat instructed to take lhe mailer  up wilh the railway cemmiasioners.  Mayor Jonet read the resolution  (given in another column) from the  Penticton Board of Trade protesting against the application of the  Okanagan Telephone Co-, to have  their charter amended to as lo give  them power lo conduct telegraphic  service in addition to their telephone business. He asked the  Board to endorse this, as if tha  amendment was allowed it would  practically mean the putting out ef  business of lhe government line.  The resolution wss unanimously  endorsed.

Fisher sends us lhe  following which conies in the form  of a circular letter from insurance  headquarters, in the hope that it  may be of use to those interested,  which is in this case lhe public:  " During the holiday season keep  awake to the increased fire hazard.  Observe the decorations in lhe  various stores, especially in the  show windows; lake notice of  whether lhe cotton balling, tinsel,  bunting and other materials used  in decorating the store, which are  all more or less flimsy and com  busiible, come in contact with  lamps or electric lights. II ihey do,  notify the proprietor and he will  gladly remedy the aame as a fire  at tins lime would greally impair  hia lrn.de, Celluloid combs, brush  bac ks, boxes, etc., are highly rom-  busiible and are found in every  Christmas slock. These articles  are approximately 90 per cent,  guncotton, Another great hazard  is in the hasty unpacking of goods,  i xcelsior, shavings or paper is left  lying around back sheds and yard,  lliese constitute one of the most  prolific causes of fire outbreak, generally at night."  Violation of Fruit Marks  Act  I high A. Heggie, Police Magistrate, Vernon, recently Imposed u  line of #10 and costs on lhe Vernon Fruit Co., for violation of Section 320, A. B, and C. of the Fruil  Marks Act, which requires lhat lhe  person who owns lhe fruit when II  is packed in closed barrels and  boxes, must mark plainly on each  package:  (1) His name nnd Post Office  address.  (2) The name of lhe variety o  the fruit.  (3) The grade, whether it i  fancy, No. I, No. 2 or No. 3.  These apples were shipped from  Kelowna to Calgnrv, Alia., and  marked "Cookers "which is neither  a variety nor grade, and no provision is made in the Act for  marking oilier than in Section 302  which must be observed.

Seven years ago Councillor Louis  Barth, of Arad, In Hungary, commenced to collect autographs, and today can boast of possessing one of  the finest collections ln th* world.  Indeed, he recently refused an offer  of no less than $200,000 for his album,  which contains the names of 853  wonld-rcaowned celebrities, whose remarks havs been written ln forty-  three languages. Already ninety-  three of them are dead.  Recently he visited Marlborough  House to obtain the signature of  Queen Alexandra, and at Her Majesty'! request left his priceless volume  there for twenty-four hours, In order  that she might examine at leisure  hi* wonderful array of signatures ot  Kings, Queens, Emperors, Ministers,  scientists, artists, and writers. Herr  Barth has gone all over the world to  add to hia book, and has spent be-  tweeu 145,000 and $50,000 ln travelling  expense*. The Emperor Francis Joseph, who favoured him with an autograph, told him he waa the only  person, not a Minister, who hud ever  received his signature.    ���  "1 was at Biarritz oue year," says  Herr Barth, "at the same time as  King Edward. I showed him my  volume, and, ln giving me his slgn-  aturs, he said: 'Your book is an extraordinary treasure. It has only one  defect ��� It Is not mine.'"  Herr Barth Is preparing a history  ot how his autographs have been obtained. This book will contain ln  facsimile every autograph he possesses. It Is to be Issued ln an edition of 100,000 copies, and the proceeds of Its sale will be devoted to  International charities.  Dresses   Rich   and   Wonderful   That  Hake Women Gasp nnd Men  S.t I'p ami Homier If It Is  Worth Hie Candle.  One of the most beaiitirul costumes  ever turned out was that worn by  Queen Mary at Uie Coronation Durbar, and there are no fewer than  5,250,000 stitches lu llie train, which  Is of Irish point lacs.  Ths train had been presented as a  gift by the Indies uf Belfast to her  Majesty, and was made by the Presentation Slaters ut Youghal. II has  been estimated thut it would have  taken over u quarter of a century  for a single luce worker to complete  the train..but sixty workers, working  regularly, finished It In 98,020 hours.  This reminds imp tiiat. at Uie Plan-  tagenei Bull, held at Buckingham  Palace In 1812, the lute Queen Victoria impersonated Queen Plilllpjia,  ba a silken dress mode eutlrely In  Spl-ta fields.  The dress, which was on view for  several days at Hanover Square, cost.  In materials alone, nearly $1250 while  the goms that decorated It, exclusive  of the Royal pearl-necklace, headdress, and other Jewnls, were valued  at over $300,000.  The fur that trimmed her outer  robe was minever, Uie Skin of the  Siberian squirrel, the name' kind of  fur that Queen Phlllppn wore on her  Court costumes In  the days of long  ���co.  Perhaps the most expensive dress  svtr worn by Queen Alexandra was  that in which she appeared 'it tbe  famous bull ul Devonshire Mouse in  honour of the lute Queen Victoria's  IDamond Jubilee. She took the character of Marguerite de Valols, commonly called La Heine Maraot. her  train being carried by the daughter  of Sir Francis Knollys.  Her Majesty's costumes Is said to  havs cost $1250 to make. It waa of  rich white sutln. embroidered In gold  and skiver, with a high collar from  which hung lhe train - a glorious  atfalr of clolh-of-gold lined with  silver brocade.  The Dowager Empress of Russia  ha* always dressed exqulstlely, and  ln tbe richest and most expensive  materials. She received on the occasion of her silver wedding un ermine  mantle which cost $110,00C It was  presented to her by lhe nobility of  the province of Kherson.  Oold-and-ellver dresses are by no  means uncommon 1 he metals, after  being formed Into very fine wire, are  woven Into cloth, and afterwards  mads Into dresses. Tlie women of  Sumstrs were the first to attire tliem-  eelves In  tills expensive material  Countess Palovolovetsch wore a  firefly dress at a garden-party given  at Benares some years ago. This  utvtqut gown hud the appearance of  being constructed of tongues of blue  flame resting on a bed uf light liquid  . The material of the dress Itself  waa rich brocaded silk, and attached  to ths gown were exactly 35 fireflies.  These little,creatures glowed until  the countess' left the grounds, snd  dotted the strangest gown ever worn  at a soviet) gathering In India or  elsewhere.  The Countess de VIMeneuve once  had a drees made from beetle bocks,  snd wore It on ssveral oca,Ions.  When attired In this strange costume  tht wore a beautiful scarabueiis  beetle on her neck atached lo u collar  by s slender gold chain, which allowed It to roam about the lady's chest  aud shoulders.  THE PRIMROSE LEAGUE  The  Story of ths Founding ot the  Famous British League. ��� Tbe  Primrose   Was   Beacons-  field's Faroarite Flower.  It was really a chance remark  which lad to the founding of the  Primrose League ��� that renuvrkaMe  political organization which to-day  has over 1,500,000 members.  When, on April 19th, 1883 ��� ths  second anniversary of Lord Beacons-  field's death ��� his statue was unveiled ln Parliament Square, Sir  Henry Drummond Wolff, arriving at  the Commons late ln the afternoon,  was given a primrose by Mr. Cove,  superintendent of the members' cloakroom. When Sir Henry entered the  Chamber he found the whole Con-  servaUve party similarly decorated  with Lord Beaconsfield's favourite  tlower. The fact Impressed him so  much that as he walked home with  Lord Randolph Churchill he remarked; "What a show of primrose! Thia  should be turned to account. Why  not start a Primrose League?"  Lord Randolph was instantly Interested. "Draw up a plan," he said,  "to carry out your Idea, and we will  see what can be done."  Ultimately Lord Randolph and Sir  Henry were Joined by Sir John Gorst  and Sir Alfrjd Shade and In due  course these four gentlemen founded  the League, and constituted themselves Uie ruling council.  It was orlelnally Intended to admit  men only, banded In companies of  about a hundred, to net as missionaries of the League. Ultimately, however, It was decided to admit ladles,  with the result that the membership  rose from 957 In 1884 to 237,283 In  1886. Not long ugo It was reported  that the total membership had touched 1,700,000.  It has, of course, been said that  the primrose was not Lord Beacons-  field's favourite flower, und thut when  Queen Victoria sent a wreath of  primroses to Lord Beaconsfleld's  funeral and wrote on It, "His favourite (lower," the allusion was to the  Prince Consort ��� not to the dead  statesman. Mr. Reylnuld Lucas, however, In "Lord Glenesk and the  'Morning Post,'" says that one who  knew Lord llearnnsfleld well declares  that lie habltualy wore a single primrose In his button hole when hs was  at Hugheuden 111 Ihe crrly spring:  while another more Intimate friend  can speak of having seen sn abundance of primrose In Beneonsfleld's  house In Our/on Street Unit had been  gathered on the slopes of Windsor  Castle.  THE MEAN MAN  ^Talking about meanness," said an  old son of the soil, who nursed a pint  of ale In a chair by the fire, "you  should ha' known old Ruby wliut  used to keop a farm out Goswell  way.  "Twenty years ago, it Is that his  eon went out with a tin bucket to  milk a cow.. Somehow or other, both  the lad mid the bucket disappeared  mysteriously.  "No more was heard of him till  he wandered back home ten years  after, as rich as a millionaire, and  loaded the old man up with gold and  diamond pins and new clothes, and  gave him rive thousand dollars at a  birthday prese.nl.  "And d'ye think old Ruby was  grateful? Ne'er a bit!  "'George,' says he 'wot 'ave y��r  done with the bucket?'  "And George left home again, wondering whether his dad was tht mean-  est��man In the world or whether that  distinction was sttll held by the fel-  'ow who used a wart on the back of  his neck for a cellar-stud."  PURE ENGLISH  "My dear, I wish you would speak  more carefully," said a stickler for  pure English to his wife. "You say  that 'Henry Jones came to this town  from Sunderland.' Don't you see that  It would 1* better to say that ha  'came from Sunderland to this  town'?"  "I don't see any difference In the  two expressions," rejoined the lady.  "But there Is a difference in the  two expressions ��� a rhetorical difference. You don't bear me make  use of .sn.-h awkward expressions.  By the way, I have a lettor from your  father in  my pocket."  "Oh, dear, Is my father In your  pocket?" inquired the wits. ''You  mean that you have In your pocket  a letter from my father."  "There you go with your little  quibbles! You take a delight In  harassing me; you are always talcing  up a thread and representing It a*  a  rope."  "Representing It to be a rope, you  mean, dear?"  And then he grinned a sickly grin  and wished he had never started th*  discussion.  A wadding ceremony hud come to  a dote. The moUier snlfled convulsively, and the bride dabbed her  pretty eyes with handkerchief. One  ot Ihe bridesmaids was also affected  lo lean.  "Why do you weep?" asked a  groomtmiuu of ths bridesmaid; "It's  not your wedding."  The girl looked at him scornfully.  "That's the roaBon, you stupid." And  she sighed.  There Is many a man who Isn't  wortb what It costs him to live.  RUN DOWN  Tlie council employs had formally  applied, in writing, for a holiday ���  with salary, of course ��� on th*  grounds that he was "run down."  "I'm a bit suspicious of this run-  downitls," 'remarked the chairman.  "It's been very prevalent among the  council's employes of late. I propose  the applicant be sent for."  "I beg to second that."  The proposition being carried, a  messenger went in search of Uie applicant. Presently there, was a scut-  fling at Uie door ot the council chamber, i  "Ordor there!" commanded the  chairman. "Officer, whry do you allow that person to try and force hi*  way Into the room? Remove him  Instantly I"  "Bog pardon, ��1t," aaid the officer, with a smile, the breadth of  which not even his own capacious  palm could concetl, "It's the man you  sent for ��� the road foreman wot'*  run down."  "Oh, well, let him enter, then."  "Beg pardon, sir, 'e can't I'g too  fat tor ths doorl'" +s\  W.

Sliaipe & Thompson,  architects of Vancouver, have been  successful in the notable competition for the high honor of authorship of the designs and plana upon  which the various buildings in their  entirety constituting the University  of British Columbia will be erected.  In addition to thus winning the  prize of $4,000 offered for the best  design for this great provincial  work submitted in open competition, the successful firm will alao  enjoy the historical distinction and  by no means insignificent emoluments attaching to the preparation  of the detail plana and general supervision of the work of construction, which ia to be initiated forthwith.  Of the nineteen plana submitted  in the competi'ion, open to the  Dominion, over one half came from  British Columbia  Military Service for Women  A fight for the introduction of  military service for women is in  contemplation by the women of  Denmark, as a sequel to their unexpected victory in the struggle for  woman's suffrage. The Danish  parliament, they believe, is almost  certain to pass the bill giving the  women the vote this winter and  many women are beginning to ask  what will become of lhe suffrage  organizations. Miss Emma Gade,  well known suffragist and author  advised them lo start a campaign  for the training of Danish girls in  nursing and commissiariat work.  She argues (hat thia is the only fair  thing for women to do since men  are compelled lo give military service for the rights for which they  have long enjoyed.

Wilson has been the  guest of Mrs. Syd. Edwards for  the past week.  Mr. H. Evans, foreman on the  Rainbow ranch, returned to his  duties a few days ago after spending some three months at his old  home in the south of England.  Mr. Snell has taken over the  car.: of the Chatlerton property  during the absence of Mrs. Chatlerton and her brother, Mr. T.  Waters, who have gone down to  the coast.  Mr. and Mrs. F. Waller came  down from Woods Lake where  Mr. Waller has been engaged al  carpenter work all fall, and are  staying with Mr. and Mrs. E. McCarthy.  The parly consisting of Messrs.  Gay, Jones, Bready and Whipple  succeeded in laying low five deer  after a hunt of some seven oi  eight daya duration around thr  headwaters of Woods Creek.  We are indeed enjoying a more  than usually mild winter to date.  There ia only about two inches of  snow on the ground and little or  no frost in the ground away from  the beaten roads. We cannot kick  at such weather as this, though  most of us would like to see  enough snow to make good sleighing over Yuletide.  Johnson 6t Caswell's logging  camp is now in full blast up the  mountain on the Lewis pre-emption. A large force of men are  now employed felling and skid  ding the timber. The two-mile  sleigh road from the seat of the  logging operations to the head of  ground chute has been completed  and within a few days now hauling will commence. There is already from six inches to a foot of  snow in the woods.  The tracks of a cougar across the  main road near the reserve caused  a little excitement in the district a  few days ago. The tracks headed  up through the Duck Lake Fruit-  lands Co. orchard and on through  the timber to the divide above  Okanagan Lake. Some of the  aborigines from the reserve got out  on the tracks but were not successful in capturing this specimen of  the North American mountain lion  J, Davidson has started up his  camp on the east side of Woods  Lake and is busy constructing a  log chute from a point near the  Johnson it Carswell ground chute  to the bank above Woods Lake.  He expects to have the chute completed this week and as soon as  snow permits start logs down  chute and over the bank into the  lake below.  The government bridge gang  under the supervision of Mr. C. M.  Watt, have constructed a good substantial bridge across the creek  running between Duck and Woods  Lakes at the old Swalwell ford.  Two rock-filled ends were built  upon the right and left banks of  creek with six 30-foot stringers  resting on them and on top of  these a covering of 3-inch fir  planks 16 feet long is laid. A railing of fir poles has been placed  on each side of the bridge and  stone walls built on up stream  aide to protect cribs. Rock-filled  approaches with a covering of  earth were made on each end of  the bridge.

Oxford University has s Jargon of  Its own, which la i .u ilj culled from  the lame kind of Hung used In the  public schools t>t England. Some of  the exyresalona ure rather bewildering lo lhe freshman when ho first  "foes up" to the University.  Study, nodal life, uud sport eaoh  havs their peculiar expressions.  The first examination to be passed  le Hesponslons, called "Smalls." Ths  examinations ure called "Schools"  because they lake place lu the Examination Schools. After "Smalls"  comes the Divinity examination,  which all must pass. Ths undergraduate tails It "dlvvers." Then  oomes Moderations ��� called "Mods,"  aad the final examination tor the  B.A. degree called "Greats."' Lectures  lo preparation for these examinations  art called "lekkers." If at the end  ot any term a student la not taking  a public examination he has a college  examination Collections, or "Uol-  lekars."  A man who is reading Chemistry is '  oalled s "Stinks" man. If he Is attending Mathematics lectures be will  bo a "Maths" man. Tho tutors are  called "Pons."  Ia bis social life, too, the Oxford  man haa his pot expressions. Breakfast Is a favourite meal for the display of hospitality. "Come to 'brekker' with me," u "second year" man  will say to ths "fresher." The  manservant who brings up tbe breakfast, makes the beds, cleans out the  rooms, etc., Is called a "scout."  Breakfast, luii'ii, and tea are taken  ln a man's rooms, dinner Is taken In  "Hall." The bill for dinners Is called  "battels."  Au average man's day put Into  Oxford Jargon-would run something  like this:���  Get up and "keep a chapel," services being held every morning and  evening. After "brekker" go to "lekkers."
