 ttvvb  VOL. V.   NO. 16.  KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, MAR. 13, 1913.  ss  sfsr  $1.50 Per Annum.  Meeting of  City Council  Making Prisoners Work - Petition for More Lights on  Pendozi Street  The council held ita usual meeting fast Friday with a full attendance. The Chief Constable's report for the month of February  was read. The 68 case* which  had been before the magistrate  were almost entirely cases of  " drunk and disorderly." Fines  amounting to $189.50 had been  paid into the city treasury, in ad-,  dition to which prisoners who had  been unable to pay fines had contributed a total of 48 hours work  on the city's streets.  The Mayor drew the attention  of the council to this latter item  and suggested that a rate per day  be fixed for prisoners work, for  which the Police Department  should receive credit.  The city clerk stated that in Vernon the police department was  credited at the rate of $1.50 per  day for prisoners' work. Chief  Sutherland, who was present, expressed the opinion that as the  police department would be  charged with the prisoners' board  their work ahould be worth at least  $1.50 per day to the other civic  departments. He said the system  of making prisoners work was  proving satisfactory, and had resulted in a greater proportion of  fines being paid.  Aid. Copeland, however, as  chairman of the Board of Works,  was plainly not enamoured of the  new scheme. He said his commit"  tee were not at all anxious to use  prison labor on the streets at any  figure. It was a great hindrance  to the city foreman who usually  found it necessary to visit different parts of the city in the aame  day. When he had a number of  I. prisoners to guard it was impossible for him to do so. The prisoners too did not get through very  much work, and he thought one  good man could do as much in a  day as several of them.  The matter wm left over for further discussion by the council.  The following accounts were  passed for payment:  C. P.R., freight $32 64  P. Whitnell, eewer time cheque     21 00  J.Jennings  do     10 35  W.Tellon..  do      16 25  Vanoouver Map tt Blue Print Co,,  maps    71 30  P. Coffet, water worke  construct'e   40 66  C.

F.TesI, February salary  100 00  American Baak Noes Co., cheques   70 00  A petition from residents on  Pendozi St for more street lights  was submitted in the following  terms:  " We, the undersigned, respectfully submit the following petition  to the_ Mayor and Aldermen of the  City of Kelowna, That a sufficient  number of incandescent lamps be  placed along Pendozi St. between  the corner occupied by Mr. S. T.  Elliott and the corner occupied by  Mr. M. G. Gorrie for the following  reasons, viz. (I.) That the shade  trees and poles obstruct the light  of arc lamps from resching the  sidewalk. (2.) That in going along  the street from either "comer the  light from the far corner impedes  the vision of anyone using the  roadway. (3.) That it is the msin  thoroughfare between the railway  conatruction camps snd the city,  and therefore the residents desire  the additional protection which  would be given by more light"  Mention was made of the number of incandescent lights which  were broken by boys throwing  stones, and the clerk was instiuct-  ed to request the principal of the  ^Public School to warn tne scholars  that if any of them were taught  trying to damage the lamps or any  other city property, they will be  punished. Aid. Taylor also suggested that the Chief of police be  asked to interview the parents of  two children who were seen throwing stones at the lamps in Glenn  avenue.  A resolution was passed bearing  upon the new assessment as follows ; "That in the matter of the  assessment for 1913 the land values  of the 1912 assessment be adopted  whenever practicable, in ao far as  it refers to property which has not  \  been subdivided subsequent to the  1912 assessment."  Aid. Sutherland who had introduced the motion explained thai  hia reason for doing so was to enable the assessor to complete' his  roll at the earliest possible date.  The light and water committee  were instructed to authorize the  Kelowna Sawmill Co. to sell a  large quantity of slabs belonging  to the city which had been purchased last tall and held in reserve  to ensure a supply of fuel during  the winter. As the mill would  shortly be starting up again they  would probably not be required.  Aid. Sutherland drew attention  to the fact that there were four or  five old treea standing in front of  stores in the main atreet which  should be cut down. They were  generally regarded as a nuisance  and he knew the merchants affected would be pleased to see them  removed. Aid. Copeland agreed  that trees in the business section'of  the city were a nuisance, and he  would like to see them all cut  down.  A resolution was passed authorizing the parks committee to cut  down any trees which were considered detrimental to the streets.  Aid. Copeland complained of  the number of dogs which were  always running at large on the  streets, and suggested that the  licence fee be increased. It was  decided to take up the matter  again at the next meeting of council  An agreement between the city  and A. R. Davy in reference to the  scavenging work was submitted  and its signature authorized.  The meeting then adjourned.  Immigration Rush Already  Started  The annual rush to Canada haa  set in earlier than is usual, and  from now until the end of May or  well  into Junie  the  immigration building permits since January I st  authoritiea will be kept busy,  Though last year was a record one  the Dominion may be prepared to  welcome this year a still greater  number of new settlers. Mr. J.  Obed Smith, head of the Canadian  government immigration department in London states that he and  his officials are prepared to ship  twice as many as they did in 1912.  "Last year," said Mr. Smith,  " the number of arrivala in the  Dominion was 395,804. That  number constituted not only a  record in number but in quality  also.  " We are quite up to the average  and we expect that the rush this  spring, will eclipse anything we  have seen before," an immigration  agent said when questioned,  "Though people have been going  to Canada for years, it is only now  that the possibilities of the country's resources are being understood."  The Government of British Columbia through Hon. Dr. Young,  head of the active Department of  Public Health, has transmitted to  Dr. Friedmann, the well known  German physician whose new  treatment for tuberculosis is at present engaging the special attention  of the world of science, a cordial  invitation to visit this province and  conduct hia Western American  experiments or demonstrations at  the Tranquille Sanitarium.  Militant suffragettes set fire Monday to the Saunderton station of  the Great Western Railway and  burned it to the ground. Saunderton is about thirty-one miles from  London. Two placards were found  in the vicinity reading: " Burning  to get the vote " and " Votes for  women."  Lured by the report that a rich  gold strike has been made in the  Lake Atlin country, in northern  British Columbia and Yukon territory, a rush of gold seekers has  started for Skagway bv boat from  Seattle. The fortune hunters, who  go equipped for the hardships they  must undergo, will leave the boats  at Skagway, take a White Pass  train for Cariboo Crossing,' and  there strike out across the snow  trail for two hundred miles northeasterly.  Register Your Vote at Once  Last week we notified you of the fact that by special act  of the Legislature all voters' lists had been cancelled on March  3rd. All who wish to be on the new list must make application  at once, i.e., must fill in the paper application form, no matter  how long they have been voters previously.  The following gentlemen are qualified to take applications:  Mayor Jones,  Magistrate Boyce,  H. W. Raymer, J.P.,  H. J. Hewetson, J.P.,     '  D. W. Sutherland, J.P���  R. H. Parkinson, J.P.,.  Any Alderman,  ,,    Postmaster,  ���    Notary Public,  ���   Municipal Clerk,  ���   Commissioner for taking affidavits.  This   new   compilation   of  the  list  means a tremendous  amount of work to be done in a short time, and to assist in  securing voters the " Record " is throwing its office open to the  public.    Dr. Dickson will be there to take your application.  Don't delay���do it now I  Will Be Record Year for  Building in Kelowna  By End of Month Will Reach  Over .$200,000. j  Building operations promise to  be unusually brisk in Kelowna during the coming spring, and by the  end of the season the great number of new buildings which are  either in progress or planned will  have made a considerable difference in the appearance of the city.  All indications point to one of the  busiest and most prosperous years  which the city has ever enjoyed.  Already though only two and a  half months of the year are gone,  Cheap Blasting Powder  and Lime  For All Members of Farmers'  Institute  have amounted to well over  $110,000, and this does not include  some half-dozen large blocks in  the business section, three of which  are now under way and will in  themselves more than double this  total.  Government Mean To Stamp  Out Wolves and Cougars  With an appropriation of $26,-  000 for disbursements during the  present year in connection with  the destruction of wolves, cougars,  &c, Chief Game Warden A. Bryan-  Williams expects during the present twelve months to appreciably  reduce the number of these enemies of the game and scourge of the  back district farmyards. It is only  since January 1st, 1912, that the  supervision of the payment of  bounties has rested in this branch  of the attorney-general's depart,  ment, and, while the work has entailed a considerable sacrifice of  time, it has'resulted in the department not only obtaining much  useful information but checking as  well many irregularities and probable frauds of the past in the  award of these bounties.  Ottawa's Women Police  Two policewomen, Mrs. J. C.  Henry and Mrs. Florence Campbell, have been sworn in and detailed for duty on the Ottawa  police force. The appointments  were made by the police commissioners at the request of the local  Council of Women. Their police  duties will consist in meeting all  trains and looking after women  and girls around the stations.  Penalty for Illegal Voting  Col. Hugh Clark, of North Bruce  gives notice of an amendment to  the Dominion Elections Act. The  law at present is that any person  guilty of illegal voting is subject to  a fine of $100, which goes to the  informer, and which he twos for as  if it was a debt due to him. Col.  Clark proposes that, in default of  payment, the penalty be six months imprisonment. The amend"  ment ia designed to cover cases  where-illegal voters are judgment  proof.  The Department of Agriculture  calls attention to the fact that by a  special arrangement with the Canadian Explosive Co. of Victoria,  and the Giant Powder Co. of Vancouver, blasting materials can be  obtained by members of the  Farmers' Institute at the rate of $5  per case, f.o.b. the factory, and  one-half the usual freight rates,  namely. 39 cents per case landed  at Kelowna. No business can be  done either-by the local Institute  or by the above-named companies  unless.orders are accompanied by  the requisite remittance.  A similar concession has been  granted by the C.P.R. in reference  to ground rock limp, but orders for  this also must be sent by the secretary of the Farmers' Institute.  Those members who have not  yet sent in their subscriptions for  this year are advised to do so immediately in order to have their  names included in the returns of  the first quarter, as new lists are in  course of preparation.  British Columbia's Forest  Wealth  Out of every $4 in the Provincial  treasury $ I is provided by the forest revenue.  British Columbia contains no less  than one hundred million acres of  forest land, containing over three  hundred billion feet of timber.  The lumber output of British  Columbia is about one and a quarter billion feet per year.  The annual growth of timber in  British Columbia is over five times  the present annual cut.  Rutland News  (From our own coireepondent)  Mr. J. Wallace has been appointed waterlbailiff for the Kelowna  Irrigation Co., during the coming  season.  Mr. and Mrs. F. Whitehead and  family left last Saturday for their  new home in Delaware, U.S.A.  The evening service at the Mount  View Methodist charch last Sunday was well attended considering  the state of the roads. Rev. Mr.  Stapleford, of Vancouver, occupied  the pulpit giving a graphic description of the necessity for the proposed Ryerson College. He has  been especially chosen by the  Methodist conference to raise  $400,000 for a building and endowment fund.  Merritt is now lighted witl electricity, the plant having been tested  and the current turned on.  Telephone System  Now Completed  Reconstructed System is Thoroughly Modern One  The rebuilding and reorganizing  of the local telephone system by  the Okanagan TelephoneCo. which  was commenced some twelve  months ago, and which has involved an expenditure of some $50,000  or $60,000 in addition to the purchase price of the old system, was  practically completed last week,  and the remainder of the construction gang removed to Penticton.  In spite of the adverse criticism  which has been levelled against  the company���with and without  reason���there is no denying the  fact that Kelowna has now a telephone equipment which represents  the latest in telephone engineering  and will compare favorably with  any system on the continent. The  new cable system, the pole line  and the well equipped new central  exchange and offices on St. Paul  street have all been planned and  executed with an eye to permanence and efficiency, rather than  economy, a fact which haa been  apparent to the most casual observer.  Mr. Webster, the superintendent  of construction, taxed himself to  put up pole lines of sufficient carrying capacity to handle the increasing business that seemed bound to  come with the rapid growth of the  citv.  All construction material used  on the plant is the best on the market. The poles, of uniform height  35ft., are of cedar and all inspected  for class " A " poles.  Full metallic service (which  means two complete wires to each  phone) has been created on all  lines, even to the rural lines ten  and twelve miles from the city.  Two.metallic circuits to Vernon  and points north have been installed, and with a combination of  these, what is known asa"phantom  circuit" is created, thus allowing  three calls at one time between  those points and Kelowna. The  line to Penticton has been in operation for some time and only recently a new circuit to Mission was  connected to the lines operated by  Grant Smith & Co. toward Naramata thus giving ample connections in all directions.  It was with a view to getting  more detailed and accurate notes  of what the company has done in  Kelowna that a representative of  the " Record'" paid a visit the  other day to the new exchange,  and was fortunate in finding the  local manager, Mr. McMillan, who  escorted him through the premises and gave a very clear account  of the operation of the various instruments and equipment.  Unlike most institutions of mechanical or electrical nature, the  telephone exchange is never burdened with quantities of mystifying  machinery, but the equipment to  be found at our local plant is in  every way worthy of inspection  and praise.  In taking a journey through the  plant one is firat shown the " rack  room," situated in the rear of the  building. It is here you see the  distributing frame or cross connecting board, made up of sectional angle iron to a height of eight  feet. On one side of this rack are  brought in the cables from the  outer system which are " fanned  out" as the term goes, that ia the  numerous wires contained in the  cables are separated and joined up  to specially prepared terminal  strips.  On the opposite side of the  frame are the protected strips  which form the terminals for the  cables leading to the switchboard.  Theae strips are equipped with  mica and carbon blocka and a  small contrivance called " heat  coil " which under the pressure of  any undue electrical force will  collapse and allow the circuit to  become " grounded " thus protecting the delicate wiring of the  switchboard.  Connections between the two  points on the rack are effected by  the use of flame proof wire  and the apparently haphazard way  in which they twist in and out on  tha rack supports will mystify the  uninformed.  Another interesting feature of  this room is the Telometer, an ordinary looking telephone yet very  different in its wonderful internal  mechanism. With this instrument  the wire chief is able at once to  discover the nature and location  of any cases of trouble that may  happen anywhere in the entire  system.  Power for the working of the  system is supplied by a multitude  of " dry cells " which are contained  in the battery cabinet which occupies one side of the rack room.  Ovet this battery cabinet are two  instruments which are perhaps the  moat interesting and intricate in  the whole plant. These are the  "selectors" controlling the lockout system, which makes party  line 'phones almost as efficient and  quite as secret as separate connections. By the lock-out rystem,  while a aubacriber on a party line  is speaking all other 'phones on  that line are disconnected for the  time being, making overhearing of  conversation impossible and obviating also the necessity of ringing  up everyone on that line in making  a connection with one.  We now enter the operating  room to find a very handsome type  of the Northern Electric switchboard, and are given a chance to  see its operation.  Mr. R. W. Milliken, the chief  electrician, put forth the best of his  efforts in this work and the wiring  of this equipment is of the very  best.  Two operators are in constant  attendance on this board from 8  a.m., until 6 p.m., and have only  the local business to transact, all  the toll business being done at a  temporary toll board in the outer  office.  The switchboard now installed  has lull capacity for 400 lines, and  additions are all arranged for at  any time they are found neceasary.  A commodious rest room and  lavatory at the rear of the operating room has been provided for  the operating staff and an outside  entrance to same to allow them to  come and go to their work without  entering the business office.  The basement has been made  under the entire building and is of  waterproof cement, the building  being heated by a hot water installation.  In discussing the affairs of the  company in general, Mr. McMillan,  the manager, made it plain that it  was the policy of the compsny to  give the best service that is possible and does not hesitate to compare it with any in the country.  He points out that in view of vast  improvements that have been made  for the service and the expi-nsive  construction work that has been  done to improye both the looks  and endurance of the outside work  the public are not fair in condemning the company's every move.  No rates have been raised even  though the service has been improved to a wonderful extent. The  toll rates are not more reasonable  anywhere, and the time service  reduces the irksome " waiting for  a line " to a minimum.  Speaking further Mr. McMillan  said he had no doubt that within  six months from the opening of  the new system thsy would have  in service over 450 telephones.  They were now giving service lo  334 and that was an increase of  over 50 since January Ist.  A new directory will soon put  in its appearance that will show  the old subscriber a great many  changes.  Public pay stations are in operation at the Lake View and Palace  hotels and at Mr. A. Alsgard's  store, where the non-subscribing  public can get connection when  wishing to make a call wilhout .'bothering a merchant or  neighbour by borrowing his service.  Birth.

Items from Ellison  (li.,ni ou, uwn uot,..pond.nl)  On Friday last, the literary society visited the society at Benvoulin, to engage in a debate, the subject being " Resolved that Home  Training Affects the Career more  Profoundly than School Training  or Society at Large." Good  speeches were made by the debaters on both sides, the decision  eventually being given lo Benvoulin who took the negative. A short  programme of music was also  given, winding up with a humorous dialogue entitled " Votes for  Women." Owing to the muddy  state of the roads, the Ellison society was only sparsely represented,  but those who did make the journey had a real good time and hope  to go again next season.  On Friday next there vvill be a  Scotch and Irish concert. A great  time is assured everyone. We understand that a charge of 25 cents  is to be made.    All come.

Yours truly,  J. L. MACREADY  Fear of Suffragette  Guy Fawkei  At the re-opening of the British  parliament last week the time-  honored ceremony known as  "searching the vaults" beneath  the Houae of Commons and the  House of Lords which has been  carried out since the attempt by  Guy Fawkes in 1605 to blow up  the king and parliament, but which  in later years has been performed  in a most perfunctory manner,  again was undertaken seriously,  presumably owing to recent suffragette outrages.  A paity of yeomen of the guard  went carefully through the buildings, accompanied by one of the  chief officials of parliament, and  by inspectors of police and other  high functionaries. All of these  made a thorough search for any  lurking suffragettes.  Mr. D. E. Foster has rented one  of the new stores on Water street  for the purpose of selling off his  remaining stock of chinaware.  We learn that the ten acres comprising Block 25, Plan 202, adjoining the Cavanagh orchard,  owned by G. R. Albrigliton, of  Kamloops, and J. C. Curtis, of  Kelowna, has been disposed of to  H. G. Hillard for the sum of  $14,000.  The Western Catiners, Ltd., is  the name of the new company  which has been formed by the  ahsorbtion of the Kelowna Canning Co., and the Penticton Canning Co., and has lor its object the  extension and co-operation of th'  whole canning industry of the  Okanagan. The nominal capital  of the companv is $250,000. A  small issue of $100 shares is now  being offered and application  should be made to the secretary,  Mr. Leopold Hayes.  The Okanagan Lumber Co. are  erecting a new store near their  mill on Pendozi street. This is  intended to serve a double purpose��� while furnishing supplies to  the company's various camps, it  will also be open to the public as  a general store, and a large stock  of groceries, fitc, will be kept.

Base 117  Pure Seed for  Spring Planting  Advice from Dominion Seed  Branch  This is the season when farmers  are securing their seed supply for  the coming spring. The importance of using seed of high vitality  and free from weeds cannot be  too strongly emphasized. Very  often, in the past, farmers, through  ignorance of the quality of the  seed they were using or for some  other reason, have sown weed  seeds.  During the past few years the  Dominion Seed Branch has been  endeavoring to effect improvement  in the seed trade by educational  work with farmers and seed dealers  supplemented by the enforcement  of the Seed Control Act. This Act  defines the commercial grades of  seeds. All timothy, red clover,  alsike and alfalfa seed offered lor  aale by either wholesaler or retail  merchant must be graded and  marked Extra No. I, No. 2, or No.  3, according to quality. Seed that  will not grade No 3 cannot legally  be sold except for export or for  cleaning. This latter clause applies to farmers as well as seed  dealers. Farmers selling seed that  is below grade No. 3 to their  neighbors or to dealers on the  understanding that it is to be retailed for seeding without reclean-  ing, are liable to prosecution, and  every effort will be made to apply  the Act to farmers as strictly as to  seed merchants.  Paper packets of vegetable and  flower seed must be marked, showing the year in which they are  filled, and farmers and others purchasing such seed should see that  all packets are marked before  purchasing.  Seed grain, clover and grass  seed, as well as root and vegetable  seeds, whether in seed packets or  in bulk, must be capable of germinating in the proportion of at  least two-thirds of the legal standard for good seed of the kind.  Seed that will not germinate in this  proportion must be plainly marked  showing the actual percentage of  seeds, capable of germinating.  Farmers having or purchased seed  the vitality of which they have  reason to suspect, should have a  germination test made of a sninple  of it.  Seed grain, flax, white clover,  grasses and all other forage plant  seeds must be free from noxious  weed seeds, or be labelled showing the names of the noxious weed  seeds present.  The above are the outstanding  features of the Seed Control Act  of Canada, and, if persons purchasing seed insist on the observance of the above rules, they will  not only obtain a seed of superior  quality but will do much to ward  off an infestation of their farms by  noxious weeds. All persons so  wishing it may have their seeds  tested free of coat at the Seed  Laboratory, Calgarv, Alta.  A. D. CAMPBELL,  Inspector for Alberta and  British Columbia.  Mission Creek and  Benvouhn Notes  (From our own correapondent)  The Ellison Literary Society returned the visit paid by the Ben.  voulin society, last Friday evening  for a debate,   the   subject   being  "Resolved  that   Home   Training  Affects the Career of Persons more  profoundly than that Afforded by  the Schools or Society at  Large.  Considering the bad roads and the  darkness,   about   twenty   people  came down from Ellison   to  sup  port their speakers.   Mr. T.   Mor  rison of Ellison led the affirmative  supported by   Mr.   Bowser.    Miss  Mary Day  of Benvoulin  led  thc  negative supported by  Mr.  Wm  Patterson.  The speakers of the affirmative  pointed out the lives of great men  that were influenced by home train>  ing and ideal mothers. But the  speakers for the negative side  pointed out more clearly and  proved that the majority of persons  were influenced more by school  and society at large.  The judges were Mr. D. Leckie  of Kelowna, Geo. Mr. Whitaker of  Ellison and Mr. Wallace of Ben  voulin. After considering all points  brought up by both sides and con.  densing them, the three judges  were unanimous in favor of the  negative side.  A short programme was rendered including a duet by Miss L.  Munson and Miss B. Grummett.  Recitation by Mrs. McLean. Solo  by Miss L. Munson and a dialogue  by six ladies and two men.  Refreshments we're served^at  the close and judging from all reports a very enjoyable evening  was spent by all.  The Bible Class in connection  with the Benvoulin Sunday School  visited the home of Mr. and Mrs,  Wallace on Wednesday evening  last. Mr. Wallace has been teacher  of this class for abont a year and  and it is with great regret that we  learn of his leaving the community  Both he and Mrs. Wallace will be  missed by their many friends at  Benvoulin. During the evening  Mr. Squair called on Miss A. Earn  shaw to read the farewell address,  after which Wm. Patterson pres.  ented him with a handsome umbrella as a token of the esteem  wliich he is held by the class.  Industrial Uses of Tamarack  A series of tests to determine the  mechanical and physical properties  of Western larch (tamarack) has  been recently made by forest product experts, and it has been  shown that the strength is 81.7  per cent., where western hemlock  is 88 per cent, and Douglas fir 100  per cent. It is shown that the  maximum strength of green bridge  stringers average of all grades is  67.9 per cent, as great as the  strength of small clear beams cut  from large timbers, The stringers  from small trees are of better  quality than those taken from old  trees, and the material coming from  the upper portion of the tree exhibits less strength than that from  the lower portion.  These results will assist in making more common the use of many  species and grades of timber which  have hitherto been thought useless.  Juut as in Eastern Canada, red pine  spruce, tamarack, and even balsam  fir are taking the place of white  pine' in Western Canada such  species as larch can replace Douglas fir in some of the less important industries.  Certain regions, notably the Nelson and Cranbrook districts in the  southern part of the province, are  cutting large quantities ol larch, at  the present time. This timber is  being used in all forms of construction, in making fibers, and in many  other directions. In the East Kootenay, tamarack will rank among  the four most important woods.

The Dominion Superintendent  of Immigration reports that during  1912 British Columbia received  the following: British settlers  16.516, from United States 28,688,  others 11,611, making a total of  56,817. These figures do not, of  course, include the migration of  settlers from the middle west and  other parts of Canada.  tamarack trade, mainly because  the old-time prejudice against it is  rapidly passing away.  One of the problems which  awaits the attention of the Forest  Branch in the near future is the  making of investigations which will  show what species can be used to  best advantage in various lines of  construction and manufacture.  The lumber trade and woodworking industries have benefitted in  other countries by just such procedure, and with the great resource  of inferior sizes and specie t which  British Columbia has in eddition  to some of the finest timbes in the  world the increase in the v.due of  woods products would b�� very  great.

B..Buckstonfc \*  In the former the centre- of in.  rerest is Corporal Gregory Brewr  ster, a veteran of eightty years, one  of the few survivors of the great  battle of Waterloo. Living alone  in small dirty lodgings in Woolwich, he is overtaken by Father  Time. A great-niece, sent from the  country to do what she can to add  to his comfort and we'll being, finds  him neglected and'ill, a' pathetic  figure of mental and physical decay. Though his memory for  recent events has failed, his mind  is ever clear regarding incidents  relative to the two greatest moments of his life ; when he performed a deed of heroism, acd when  that deed was fittingly recognized  by his country.  Now sadiv humorous, now deeply pathetic, the story leads up to a  moment of exaltation when the  old man lives again to shout with  all the fire of youth, " The guards  need powder, The guards need  powder I"  " Good for Nothing " the scene  of which is a cottage in Windsor,  is distinctly humorous, in fact al  times most ludicrous, yet has running beneath the surface" - a  thought worth taking away.  Nan, left homeless when a small  child by an accident to her only  relative is adopted by two friends  a gardener and a fireman, "���ho  though they adore her, bring hei  up in a very Topsical manner. At  sixteen, undisciplined, dirty and  untidy, she runs wild about the  streets. The knowledge that this  is wrong and must not continue  worries her " fathers" but they  cannot agree upon an occupation.  Their con'radicrory efforts to alter  her ways are futile. However the  right words at the right moment  from a young man who evinces an  interest not quite fatherly, open  N>\n's eyes to her condition, and  she "cleans up." The knowledge  of two fine deeds arising from the  girl's generous impulses, increases  the admiration and affection of the  three men and there is a suggestion of a happy ending.  In the interval between the plays  lhe audience will be instructed  historically as to " How Bill Adams  Won the Battle of Waterloo," by  Mr. T. F. Knox, and Mr. Alex  Bentley will sing some numb-rs  from '! Songs of the Norseland."  It is unquestionably a privilege  for all, but especially for those who  either from choice or necessity, remain mountain-locked throughout  the year, to see really good plays  pleasingly presented by so thoroughly capable a company as the  Summerland Players.  An attraction at the Opera  House this week were the mysterious Fendon & Urdu whose wonderful escapes from securely  locked trunks and milk cSns have  proved a fruitful subject of talk  around town, Messrs. Lawson's  Ltd.! challenged Urdu to get out  of a trunk supplied from their  store. The challenge waa accepted and the trial fixed for Tuesday  night. The trunk was a strong one  and fitted with abundant locks  and straps, but it wss evident that  Urdu's secret did not lie in having  a fake trunk, Tor he got out of this  one in two or three minutes.
