A resolution was also passed,  " that the mayor and city clerk be  authorized to sign the agreement  between the Kelowna Land & Orchard Coj and the city, and attach  the corporate seal thereto, and  that the sum of $10,000 be paid  according to the aame."

To comply with the requirements  of the Bank of Montreal a formal  by-law was introduced, authorizing  the city to borrow up to the sum  of $25,000 in anticipation of the  revenue of 1912. This would cover  all probable borrowings for current  expenses until the taxes for 1912  were paid in. The by-law was  given a second and third reading.  In compliance with sections 146  and 147 of the Municipal Clauses  Act, the 4ollector submitted a detailed statement, under oath, of  the unpaid taxes as at December  31st 1911.  The annual financial statement  and auditor's report were adopted.  The meeting then adjourned until the following day.

H. Dunn, petty cash  27.39  By-law 102 was reconsidered  and finally passed.  The following resolution met  with unanimous approval:  " That this retiring council at its  last meeting desires to place upon  the minutes its high appreciation  of the services of the Kelowna  Fire Brigade rendered during the  year of 1911. We consider the  excellent state of efficiency in the  brigade has Seen due to the untiring efforts of Chief Max Jenkins,  who at all times and under most  trying conditions has given most  excellent leadership. Representing the citizens of Kelowna, we  therefore convey to him and the  brigade   oijir  sincere and   hearty  thanks for their efforts in preserving property, and wish them continued success. It is further moved  that a copy of this resolution be  forwarded to the chief."  A resolution was also passed  "That this council express its  thanks to the Press for the fair and  impartial reports of its proceedinga  during the past year."  Mr. G. H. Dunn, the city clerk,  met with the highest commendation from all the members of the  council for the able, efficient and  courteous manner in which he had  carried out his duties during the  past year. The assistance which  he had rendered to the council  was highly appreciated by all.  Aid. Jones before adjournment  teferred to the fact of the meeting  being the last for the old council,  and the parting from several members which would take place. They  ould especially miss the keen  business experience of Aid. Leckie,  who was amongst the retiring aldermen. Aid. Leckie had bt-en  almost a whole council in himself,  and the way in which he had conducted his own depaitment was a  credit. Aid. Leckie thanked the  members for their kind wishes and  expressed the pleasure he had had  in handling the problems of the  city business in conjunction with  the men who had been his associates on the council during the last  two years.  The meeting then adjourned.  There was a full attendance of  members when the new council  assembled for the first time Monday morning.  After the usual swearing in by  signing the oaths of office, Mayor  Jones took his seat at the head of  the table.  Practically the only business was  the arranging of standing committees for the vear. The appointment of these is the privilege of  the Mayor, who announced his  selection as follows:  FINANCE.  Aid. F. A. Taylor, Aid. D._W.  Sutherland.  BOARD OF WORKS.  Aid. R. A. Copeland, Aid. W. C.  Blackwood, Aid. H. W. Raymer.  FIRE PROTECTION AND 9UILDINGS.  Ald.H.H. Millie, Aid. R. A. Cope-  land,  ELECTRIC LIGHT AND WATER.  Aid. D.W. Sutherland, Ald.H. H.  Millie.  HEALTH AND SEWERAGE.  Aid. H. W. Raymer, Aid. W. C.  Blackwood, Aid. D. W. Sutherland.  PARKS AND CEMETERY.  Aid. W. C. Blackwood, Aid. F.  A. Taylor.  His Worship pointed out that  this year there were three members on the Board of Works and  the Health and Sewerage Committees. This had been done owing to the prospect of extra heavy  work which these committees  would have to face during the  coming year. He hoped that each  member would do his best for the  department of which he had  charge.  The tint- of meeting was then  discussed, but it was decided to  make no change for the present.  The meeting adjourned until  Monday next, Jan. 22nd.  Railway Will Be In Kelowna  Within Next Twelve Months  Kettle  Valley   Railway   Co. Rushing Survey Line From  Kelowna to Connect with C. P. R. at Vernon  All doubt as to whether the long  looked for railroad i* to make its  appearance in Kelowna hava been  dispelled during the past few days  by the appearance in the city of  the engineers of the Kettle Valley  Railway Co., who have already  completed a preliminary survey of  a line to connect with the C. P. R.  at Vernon. The ultimate location  of the proposed line is not yet de-  finately fixed, but it is expected to  run, via Woods' Lake, and following the valley of Mill Creek behind  Mr. Leslie Dilworth's, cut through  near Mr. Cosens' place and enter  the city on the north, joining up  with the already exie'ing tracks and  car slips. The engineers express  themselves as well pleased with the  preliminary  work,  and  the   easy  grades encountered.  On the best authority it has been  stated that it is the intention of the  Kettle Valley company lo push  forward at once with the construction of the line, which, owing to  the absence of any serious engineering difficulties, they expect to  have completed by the end of  1912. This short Kelowna-Vernon  line is part of a more comprehensive scheme to connect up with  the company's line to the south.  This is news of the very best  kind to the people al Kelowna  who have waited long and patient-  for this consummation of their  hopes. Keep your eye on Kelowna  during the next few months, and  WATCH HER GROW 1  Proposed Poultry Association  for Kelowna  Quite a number of enthusiastic  poultrymen of the district responded to the call for a public meeting  to consider the question of forming  a Poultry Association in Kelowna.  Meltings were held in Messrs. Rat-  tenbury & Williams' office Tuesday  afternoon and evening, and the  project was thoroughly discussed  and heartily endorsed. It was decided as a oreliminary to organization, that information should be  gathered from existing associations  and that a request should be forwarded to the Department of Agriculture for the s'rvices of the provincial poultry expert to aid in organization. As soon as can be arranged u further meeting' will be  called and officers elected.  Rutland News.  From our own correspondent.  The literary society met as usual  Friday, when an interesting feature  in the form of an impromptu  speech competition took place.  Mr. W. Craig and Mr. Blenkarn  were captains, and chose sides  from the audience. The lively  manner in which the various sub-  jucts were dealt with, was highly  interesting and amusing. Miss  Gladys Bird and Miss Alda McDonald gave an opening instrumental duet, which was well appreciated. To-morrow (Friday )  Mr. Rogers of Kelowna is to read  ia paper on "war" and the next  w��k is to be "magazine night"  when short articles, news items, etc.  of local interest will be submitted  for discussion and comment.  Kelowna Cannery to Erect  Large New Building  Although the present premises  occupied by the Kelowna Canning  Co. are barely two years old, already they have become too small  to accomodate the enormous increase in business, and it has become necessary to provide a still  bigger plant and building in anticipation of the coming season's  needs, Plans have already been  prepared and a sight secured to  the north of the present structure  and as soon as weather will permit work will be started on a new  cannery, which in point ofjsize and  equipment will leave the present  one far benind' Mr. Geo. Ritchie  is the contractor.  East Kelowna News  A report of the annual Vestry  meeting of St. Michael's Church arrived unfortunately, too late for  this issue. It will appear next  week.  The regular fortnightly meeting  of the Kelowna Study Club will be  held at the home of Mrs. Dr. Gad-  des, on Thursday, January 25th at  8 p.m. The work of the evening  will be an introductory study of  the works of Gilbert Parker. Appropriate music will be provided  by the Musical Committee. All  women are invited to attend and  become members.  The Country Girls' branch of the  Ladies' Hospital Aid desire to  thank all who took part in the recent concert and dramatic entertainment which proved so very  successful. Also those who gave  candies or helped in any other  way. The sum realized was about  $200.  The people of Rutland, Ellison  and Glenmore are considering the  advisability of organizing as a district municipality, or as an alterna-  tive as a water municipality to take  over and control the water supplies  with these districts.  The service in the Methodist  Church next Sunday is under the  auspices of the Women's Missionary Auxillery. All ladies are specially invited to attend.  F. T. Abbott, who recently commenced the Penticton Steam Laundry, was in town during the week.  Mr. Abbott has put in an extensive  plant, and already has several important contracts up and down the  lake, including laundry from the  C. P. R. boats. Mr. McEown has  been appointed agent for Kelowna  and is making three shipments per  week.  Don't forget Mr. J. R. D. McAus-  land, the famous tenor vocalist and  voice specialist, who will be at  Knox Church to-morrow (Friday)  evening, and at Benvoulin Presbyterian Church Saturday evening at  8 p.m. The admission fees are  50c and 25c.  The death took place at noon to-.  day (Thursday) of Miss Archibald  sister of Mrs. D. McFarlane of  Glenn Ave. The deceased lady  had been lingering at the point of  death for some weeks past with an  affection of the heart. The funeral  takes place from the house on Saturday at 2 p. m.  On Friday, January 12th attended the meeting of the East Kelowna  Debating Society to hear Mr. Wallace on the Life and Works of  Robert Browning. The speaker  dealt more particularly with Browning's message to the world to lead  it back to faith and trust in Providence through his poems which obscure and perhaps not so melodious as others, are more full of  thought than any, and illustrated  his remarks by some fine extracts  from the poet's works.  On Friday January 26th a debate  will he held on the important topic  whether Asiatics should be excluded from the Dominion. Messrs.  Gillespie and Mckie will advocate  their exclusion, while Messrs Leg-  att and Newbold will oppose it.  Board of Trade  Monthly Meeting  3.00  5.00  9.95  6.00  To the regret of her many music  pupils in Kelowna, Miss P. Louise  Adams has signified her intention  of making her home for the future  with her parents in Hanover, Ont.  Miss Adams will be much missed  in local musical circles.  C. P. R. passenger train No. 4.  which left Vancouver early Saturday morning, ran into a snowslide  on Sunday in Rogers Pass. Three  cars were derailed, but no one was  injured. A wrecking train composed of three cars, one of which  was the private car of Superinten-  tendent Kilpatrick of Revelstoke,  which was going out to to the aid  of No. 4 from Vancouver, was  struck by a slide at Albert Canyon.  All three cars, engine and cab were  turned over. One man was killed  and three injured.  Births  MARVIN-On Wednesday, January 17th, to the wife of H. Marvin, a girl.  tion of the ferry service to West  Bank. He said that in view of  probable developments on the  Indian Reserve property, it was  necessary to have a first class service at a lower charge. He proposed that a resolution be forwarded to the government asking for a  free service.  The date of the annual merting  and election of officers was fixed  for Monday, Feb. 5th at 8 p.m. in  Rnymei's Small Hall.  The regular monthly meeting of  the Board of Trade took place  Tuesday evening last in the secretary's room.  The usual batch of correspondence took up the principal part of  the evening.  Mr. Hamilton Lang, in reply to  a request that the government  dredge the mouth of Mill Creek  stated that the government could  not entertain the idea, as the creek  was within city limits. In discussion it was contended that the sand  bank which needed cutting out  as below low water level and  consequently outside the city's  jurisdiction. It was decided to  point this out and ask for a reconsideration of the matter.  The C. P. R. superintendent of  telegraphs wrote respecting delay  in transmission of messages, and  claimed that the government lines  were principally responsible. The  secretary was instructed to forward  the correspondence to the Minister  of Public Works at Ottawa.  An announcement from the secretary of the Associated Boards of  Trade of the Okanagan that the  annual convention had been delayed for a month was received  with some indignation. Mr. R. B.  Kerr mentioned that the date had  had been fixed some time ago in  order that resolutions passed could  be submitted at the opening of the  legislature. The delay of a month  would defeat this object. A resolution from the Kelowna board in  particular regarding redistribution  would be rendered useless. It was  decided to send a protest against  the change and to forward the resolution on redistiibution to the  government independently.  Mr. N. Rankine, secretary of the  Western Canada Irrigation Association wrote respecting the convention to be held here in August, e-d  asking for photographs and information respecting the district.  The following accounts were  ordered payed when properly certified.  H. H. Millie, phone   .       $  B. A. Moorehouse, tracing -  G. H. E. Hudson, photos    -  D. Willis,   stamping  copyright on booklets  An^ellEngrav. Co. booklets 677.75  Mr. G. A. Fisher was added to  the committee to investigate fire  insurance rates in place of Mr.  Mantle who has left for the Old  Country.  Mr. Rees reported on behalf of  the telephone committee that previous to the sale by Mr. Millie  they had investigated the charter  held by him, and had found that  it would take two or three years  before the city could get the  special legislation necessary to  take over the system, and it would  u-oieover practically exhaust the  city's borrowing power.  Mt. Leckie, later in the evening,  gave an account of the city's  negotiations with Mr. Millie from  the granting of the charter. The  oiiginal charter had been substituted later by one which placed the  citv in a much less favorable position. The city had gone as far as  possible in their endeavor to purchase, but no satisfactory arrange-  ments could be made with Mr  Millie.  The committee were thanked  for their services and discharged.  Mr. B. McDonald, of the Farmers' Exchange brought two resolutions (given in the report of the  annual shareholders' meeting) respecting the need of transportation  facilities and the request for a  grant to erect a new building for  the A 6t T. Association. He asked  that these be endorsed by the  Board and resolutions were passed  to that effect, with the additional  request that the Provincial government take immediate steps to get  a branch line of the Canadian  Northern into Kelowna, and also  that it be made a condition of the  granting of the charter to the  Kettle Valley Railroad that they  complete their line into Kelowna  during 1912.  It was decided to supply copies  of the new booklet to real estate  firms and others at a charge of 15.-  per copy, the actual cost being  about 26. Some 2000 of the  booklets had already been spoken  for at 15c each.  Mr. Elliott introduced the  quea-  Farmers' Exchange  Has Successful Year  Annual Shareholders' Meeting  The first annual meeting of shareholders ot the Kelowna Farmers'  Exchange, Ltd., since the reconstruction of the company, was held  Tuesday last.  The president's report was a  most favorable one. The business  of the company, he said, had  reached a total of nearly $240,000  as compared with $144,000 last  year, and the pi ices realized had  established a record for the Okanagan and possibly for B. C. 1 he  net profit on the half-years trading  was $2,296.89 and the directors  recommended a dividend of 8 per  cent, on the paid up capital, the  balance of profits being placed to  reserve. Ihe repoti directed attention lo the ions which had luen  sustained by the Exchange owing  to failure ot ihe C. P. R. to provide  proper cars during the busy season.  Fruit had to be shipped in urine  tank cars instead of proper fruit  refrigerator cars, with the inevitable  result that large rebates were demanded by the wholesale houses.  Claims were being made against  the  C.  P.   R.   "for damages.  A strongly worded resolution  dealing with this matter was adopted as follows:  "Whereas we have suffered to a very  large extent this year owing to inefficient  and inadequate car service and transport,  ation facilities ; arid whereas the crop cf  1911 has been only 65 per cent, of a normal crop; and whereas the storage capacity when aevere frosts first set in last  fall waa taxed to the limit in taking care,>f  the fruit and produce sold, but which we  were unable to deliver on account of the  inadequate shipping facilities offered us,  and as next year and each year hereafter  a great many young fruit trees aie corning  into bearing, we the fanners ol the Kelowna district look forward with cnxlely  and fear that our business as fruitgrowers,  in which many have invested their entire  capital and labor for several year*, may  .neet with a severe reverse and our district a large financial loss;  "Therefore, be it resolved that this general meeting of the share-holders of the  Kelowna Farmers' Exchange, while recognizing the effort already put forth, ur��e  strongly upon the Provincial Government  the importance of making the necessary  arrangements that will assure tailway competition into this, British Columbia's most  important fruit growing centre, at the earliest possible date, and that copies of ibis  resolution be sent to the Hon. Richard  McBride, Premier; and the Hon. Price  Ellison, Mimister of Fnance and Agriculture."  Mr. B. McDonald and Mr. T.  Bulman delegates appointed by  Board to the B. C. Fruit-Growers'  Convention were to toke up the  matter of transportation theie.  Last Spring, concluded the report, the manager, Mr. B. McDonald, with admirable foresight had  taken advantage of the prospect of  a short crop and of the fact diet  the Americans were holding back  until the reciprocity question was  settled, to book orders which secured the growers exceptionally  good prices. It was hardly to be  experted that they would maintain  that high level.  The direrlors considered the  outlook for the company wan vcrv  promising, and were confident  that in a very few years the Kelowna Farmers' Exchange would  be handling, if not the whole, by  far the greater oart of the fiuit  produce of the Okenagran  Another resolution was passed  in support of the A. & T. Association's request for a grant for a new  exhibition building:  " Whereas it is of the greatest importance  to the province of British Columbia that ihe  fruit and agricultural industries continue to  excel in producing the best of their class ;  and whereas the Kelowna Agricultural and  Trades Association is doing a splendid  work in cultivating amongst the growers of  the district a desire to excel in producing  the best that can be grown : and whereas  the accommodation for the fruit and produce exhibits at the annual Fall Fair is  discouraging to exhibitors and dstrimahtal  to the advancement of ihe district, and Ihe  directors of the Association find themsrh es  unable to cope with the situation from luck  of funds;  " Therefore be it resolved that we, the  farmers and fruit-growers of the Kelowi a  district in meeting assembled, request the  Provincial Government to make an appro.  priation by way of a grant to the Agnciil.  tural and Trades Aasociation to enable  them to conatruct a satisfactory building,  and of such dimensions as will take care  ( of the fruit and produce exhibits, which  j will no doubt increase very materially  ! during the next few years."  The following board of direrlors  was appointed for the ensiling  year: W. D. Hobson, D. McEaehem,  G. K. Salvage, W. A. Srott, J. W.  Woolsey, Thos. Bulman, W.

While snowballing with some  other boys last Saturday, Richard  Horrocks, son of H. P. Horrocks,  happened a peculiar but painful  accident. In throwing a snowba"  he managed to twist his right arm  in such a way as to fracture the  bone and badly rupture the muscles. The poor little fellow whose  pleasures were thus rudelv interrupted is now under the doctoi's  care.  The annual meetings of the  Presbyterian churches of Benvoulin  and Kelowna were held 1 uesday  and Wednesday, respectively. Interesting reports were read from  the various organizations and the  officers elected for another year.  Refreshments were served by the  ladies.  Mr. Perkins, of Indian Head, is  visiting his daughter, Mrs. Downing.  The carnival at  Fuller's  skating  rink last Thursday evening attracted quite a large crowd   of   people  I in spite of the somewhat   unfavor-  ! able weather, snow falling a  large  i part of the evening.     The  judges  I of the costumes were Mrs. Gaddes,  S Rev. A. \V. K. Herdman, and  Mr.  ! J. B.   Knowles.    The  prizes  were  < awarded as follows:     Best  ladies  costume, Marjory Leckie as a Japanese girl; gentleman's, Len.   Mc-  Killican ; girl's, Mary Day ;   boy's,  I Cyril  Weddell as a Jockey ; comic,  ! Walter Wilson as a Jester.  Mr. W. E. Adams returned Mon-  j day from his holiday trip east.

Mr. John Woolsey returned las-t  week end from the coast.  G. F. Budden has been appointed janitor at the public school.  There was a large number ot applicants for the position.  Mr. H. Bartholomew returned  Tuesday from the Old Country.  After long agitation a mail clerk  has at last been placed upon the  s.s. Okanagan. This will greatly  facilitate the delivery of letters to  points up and down the lake. In  manv cases of letters addressed lo  [joints down the lake a whole day  will be saved.  Mr. Paisley is the new scavenge r  appointed by the council.  1 he annual dance of the Kelov. -  na Tennis Club is now one of the  events of the season, and the  officers had spared no efforts lo  make last Friday's affair a brilliant  function.    And they succeeded.  The government of Manitoba is  having to raise the telephone rates  and the people of Carmen, along  with other places, are viewing the  increase with some alarm. "Well,  if the worst comes to the worst,"  says the current issue of the Cai-  men Standard, "the citizens of Carmen will just have to inaugurate  another local telephone system in  town, send for Harry Millie to run  it, and give the people the rate of  $20 per year which prevailed in  the early days."  The annual general meeting of  the Kelowna Hospital Society will  be held on Friday, January 26th,  at 3 p.m. in Raymer's Small Hall.  The annual report will be presented and the election of directors  for the ensuing year will take place.  85 per cent of all headaches are  the result of eye strain.

The Editor does not nee  esearilu, endorse opinions giceu belom  THE CRANKY  3AT(  AND  THE SWEET  BATCHELOR  The third session of the twelfth  Legislative Assembly of B. C.  opened last Thursday in an unusually quiet and businesslike way,  the customary ceremony being  enacted by Lieutenant-Governor  - Patterson, accompanied by his  official staff, drawn from the officers  of the Canadian naval and military  service.  The speech from the throne  forecasted much important legislation.  Probably the chief feature of  the speech and the one which will  excite the most interest throughout the province, is the foreshadowing of measures for the further  encouraging of railway construction in British Columbia. There is  a double interest attaching to the  new railway policy of Premier]  McBride, because of the general  belief that upon it he will go to the  country in the early summer.  Details of that policy are not expected to be announced for several  weeks.  Other important legislation to be  enacted this session will ratify the  recently completed revision and  consolidation of the statutes, a new  land act will be presented, the Vancouver incorporation act will be  amended to make possible the  adoption of a commission form of  government, a measure will be  introduced for the establishment  of a department of forestry, and  the bush fires act will be amended  so that the timber of the province  may be more effectually safeguarded against fire.  Other legislation of more than  usual interest, because it affects  practically every person in British  Columbia, will deal with a re-adjustment of taxation. The report  of the royal commission on assessment and taxation will be presented  to the legislature at an early date.  Legislation which will make possible the establishment of a correction home for incorrigible girls,  will, it is understood, be introduced  by Hon. J. W. Bowser, attorney-  general, at the earliest moment  possible.  On the broad question of Better  Terms for British Columbia in the  matter of financial relations between the Provincial and the  Federal Governments it is expected  that Premier McBride will, before  the end of the session, be in a  position to am.ounce that an agreement ot a most satisfactory nature  has been reached between the two  governments. Hon. Mr. McBride  may also announce his intention to  institute negotiations with the British toreign office in relation to the  immigration of Asiatics to British  Columbia. The Premier's views  on this question are well-known,  though his oft expressed determination to do all in his power to preserve the province and its great  wealth of natural resources to the  white race.  The public accounts presented  by Hon. Price Ellison for the last  fiscal year show a satisfactory condition of the country's business  and growth. The increase of  revenue over that of the preceding  year is $1,618,150.13. while the  increase in aggregate expenditure  amounted to $1,811,809.46. Totals  for contrasted periods being net  revenue in 1909-10, $8,874,741.74:  in 1910-11, $10,492,892.27. Net  expenditure, 1909-10, $6,382,993-  .27; 1910-11. $8,194,802.95. At  the close of the fiscal year the 31 st  of March last, the balance sheet  showed total provincial assets over  all other liabilities of $ 1,497,694.45  with cash balance in banks and in  treasury in no less amount than  $8744,197.63.  " Kelowna Brotherhood "  January 16th 1912.  To the Editor,  Dear Sir:- On behalf of the  above society, I shall esteem it a  great favor if you will find room in  your next issue for this letter. I  should have not thus rushed into  print, had it not been for a false  impression in regard to the meetings of our organization which is  held by some of the members of  this community. The impression I  refer to, is to the effect that our  meetings are of an ir-religious nature, and that the subject matter under discussion, is of such a nature  as not to be quite the correct thing  for Sabbath consideration.  This, as president of the organization and acting on behalf of the  executive, I most emphatically deny  and an enquiry on the part of these  " imprcssionables " of the work  that has already been carried  through since the society has been  in session, would reveal nothing  but what is of the highest moral  and religious value.  Now sir, I am not out to apologize in any way for this society,  neither is it at all necessary to bring  forward any reason to justify our  existence. We are not, and make  no claim to be original. In Great  Britain and the United States, the  Brotherhood " has become an  essential part of the Christian work  of the church, and is looked upon  in religious circles as one of the  most important factors in the practical development of Christianity  to-day.  I do not wish to take up too much  of your valuable space, but in justice to the Christian gentlemen who  are taking an active interest in the  work of the brotherhood in Kelowna, I should like to ask our citizens not to take too much for  granted, and not to be too ready to  give credence to evil report, but  rather to exerci e that charity,  which engenders personal examination, and more often than otherwise dispels the evil report altogether, or at least reduces it in  importance.  Our position needs no explanation, and now, as hitherto, we  would invite every man in our city  to come to our meetings and see  for themselves the exact nature of  the work which is being catried on  so successfully.  Thanking you in anticipation of  this insertion, and assuring our  well-wishers that a little adverse  criticism will but give us a fresh  impetus in doing what we believe  to be "real living Christain work."  I am, very respectively yours.  On behalf of the Kelowna Brotherhood.  J. H. DA VIES,  President.  Dear Mr. Editor!

Now if I were a beauteous blushing dove eyed giijl, and a fire handsome manly youth, captain of the  Rutland Rovers,! or the Ellison  Eagles or a corporal in the Mounted Musketeers, lcjst his big. brave  heart to me, 1 shouldn't tell him  my favorite choc? were so and so's,  and only sold in one pound boxes.  1 should ask him if his landlady  mended socks nicely, because it  she dind't, 1 did.  The idea that men should run  about fetching and carrying for  girls is all wrong. It is not we who  should take them to theatres���they  should take us. The tea providing  should be the damsel's privilege,  and, instead of being asked to go  skating, she should sell her skates  and buy little romlorts for us with  the proceeds. Lpve is all very  well, but a little solid evidence of  affection is worth acres of pretty  words on scenty pink note paper,  with a forget-me-riot border.  When a poor tired man has been  ���laving all day long to earn his  modest salary, he should not be  expected to lavish the bard wor.  coin on chocolates and such like  trifles. All he cart spare should go  towards providing that little home  which Gertie is to adorn someday.  Since a certain amount of amusement is necessary, Gertie ought to  provide it, and |j)ay for it too.  Claude should be asked around to  her home and made much of. She  and her mother should help him  off with his coat, and lead him to  the largest and most comfortable  arm chair. They should bring forth  their best in the wpy of food and  drink, smoke and bo on, and set  it before him, and run about, if  necessary, instead of expecting to  be waited on. After the meal is  over she might produce tickets and  say. " Dear Claude, I know how  hard you work, and how you like  dancing, so I did without a new  hat, and bought these for the hospital social. 1 do hope vou will be  pleased."  There is much idle talk about  the rights of women, but what  about the rights 0: men ? When  we marry Gertie we shall have to  keep her, possibly to a ripe old  age. Ought she not to do a little  for us in the courts lip stage ? She  may love us, or say she loves us,  but if the only evidence of affection  she can show is to despoil us of  our hard earned wealth, such as it  then are not the butcher, the  tailnr, the poll tax collector all  equally loving. Nc, Gertie ought  not to be guilty of tin' sin of the  inhabitants of Holland, perpetuated in these charming lines:  " In matters of commerce, the fault  of the Dutch  Is in giving  too   lit le and   asking  too much."

Casorso Brothers Sue  Penticton Council  A writ has been issued against  the municipality of Penticton and  G. F. Gurnsey, (by Casorso Bros.)  for the return of $739.00, paid over  by them on account of damage  done by stray cattle to trees on the  ranch belonging to Mr. Dobie, of  Dawson.  A claim has also been entered  $525, loss, alleged to have been incurred by Messrs. Casorso, through  the impounding of the cattle by  the municipality.  It will be remembered that, some  weeks ago, the pound keeper was  instructed to round up the cattle  that were damaging the orchard,  and Messrs. Jackson and Todd,  with some difficulty, captured and  impounded them. Damages to  the amount of $739 were estimated  to have been caused, and Messrs.  Casorso paid that amount to Mr.  Gurnsey, who was appointed arbitrator in the matter. No settlement was arrived at, however,  hence the present suit.  The case will be heard in the  Supreme court of British Columbia  either at Vernon or Vancouver.  Mr. W. H. T. Gahan is acting for  Messrs. Casorso, and Mr. Tun-  bridge for the municipality ���Penticton Herald.  Commission to Investigate  Farmers' Bank  It was announced by Hon. W.  T White, minister of finance, that  the government had decided to  grant the request of the Farmers'  Bank victims for a thorough investigation of the affairs of the bank.  A royal commission is to be created, clothed with ample powers  for probing the whole fraud from  beginning to end. The decision of  the government was reached without any further representations  from the bank sufferers.  The commission has not yet  been named, but will consist of  one man, probably assisted by  council. The commission it is understood, will be created at once.

Municipal Election Echoes  Mr. James Findlay was elected  mayor of Vancouver Thursday by  a majority of over 1300 over  Mayor Taylor.  A referendum carried in Victoria  favoring the commission form of  government and the abolition of  the ward system.  Mr. Robert Gaw will be mayor  of Grand Forks for 1912. In a  hotly contested election in this  city the retiring mayor was reelected by seven of a majority  over Mr. Bernard Lequime, one of  last year's councilmen.

Photography as a work for women  wns brought into prominence recently  when the national photographers held  Inelr convcxtlon In Cleveland. A hundred or more women bad prints on ex*  Multloii ��Mch were of high grade.  Miss Lena McCauley, art critic, in an  address on photography as the art of  the hour, spoke with enthusiasm of It  as a work for women. She aaid In part:  "Photography Is the riving art, the  art of the hour, the art of today. It is  ihe latest child of the pictorial arts  .i ml the art most concerned la every-  day living. We can think of no phase  of humsi! activity In which it has no  part, for It is un ntfl sot only of pleas  ure. of beauty aud decoration, but It is  im importaut factor In literature, In  science. Iu the manuzactnns. The sur-  genu depends upon the camera. The  astronomer and the mtcroecopist use It  to extend their vision and to record  mysteries and discoveries.  ���'Photography offers a wide Held for  the service of women. Woman Is naturally an art lover and takes kindly to  Instruction in art. The profession Is not  hedged by precedent, aa are law and  Hie medical calling. Woman enters on  I lie same platform aa men, and. the  ii venues of work being to varied, she  Is welcome and may do the work best  lined for her without standing beside  her stronger brothers."
