 VOL. IV.   NO. 18.  KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY,  MAR. 28, 1912.  $1.50 Per Annum.  Meeting of  City Council  Council Pass  Resolution  Endorsing Daylight Saving  Scheme  The council held its usual meeting Monday morning, the Mayor  and Aid. Taylor, Blackwood, Copeland, and Sutherland being present.  The   following    accounts    were  passed for payment  Wm. Mills, 42 electric  light  poles    199.50  Municipal Construction Co., valves  and fittings - - ��� -183.16  King's Printers, revised statutes   -     20.00  The correspondence was then  taken up, the first communication  being from the Land Registry office  at Kamloops, stating that the lane  between Lequime's store and the  South Kelowna Land Co.'s offices,  which had received attention at a  previous meeting on account of its  being obstructed by a building, had  not been changed and still existed.  In discussion it was decided that it  would be necessary to have the  lane opened at once if the city was  to retain its right to it. Ihe obstructing building had been erected some eighteen years ago.  Aid. Copeland was requested to  see that the lane was opened at  once.  A letter from the Hon. Martin  Burrell enclosing a copy of a letter  from the Minister of Public Works,  promising attention to the request  to urge forward the telephone and  telegraph line to Penticton.  1 here were several other letters  of minor importance.  Mr. G. F. Teal who had been  asked to examine the trees planted  along the streets last year, reported  that one hundred of them had  shown no sign of life.  Aid. Blackwood said he understood that an arrangement had  been made with the person from  whom the city purchased the trees  to replace dead ones.  The clerk stated that there had  been no written correspondence  on the subject, but merely a verbal  arrangement. The trees had been  shipped in by Mr. McCarty, then  employed by the Central Okanagan  Lands, Limited., but in his own  private capacity. The matter was  referred to the Parks Committee.  Mr. J. A. Bigger, the city's building inspector, reported upon the  unsafe condition of the old building vacated by Mr. Oxley. He said  it was a danger in its present stale  to people occupying it.  The mayor asked if it could be  repaired or if it would be necessary to pull it down.  Mr. Bigger said he was not sure  until he could see the foundations,  but he thought it could be raised  and blocked up. He recommerd-  ed that it be condemned at present  until fixed.  A petition was read from the  owners of property on Fuller Ave.,  requesting the council to construct  a cement sidewalk on the Local  Improvement plan.  Aid. Taylor suggested that before any more cement sidewalks  were constructed it would be well  to settle the question of street grading. The work would have to be  done some time he contended, and  if they put in cement walks before  proper levels were fixed, it was  quite probable that some of them  would have to be torn up again.  He strongly advocated the employment of an engineer for a few  months on a salary to map out the  street grades.  Mayor Jones pointed out that  the undertaking would be a very  large one. On Bernard avenue  alone a very large expense would  have to be incurred before the  street could be properly levelled.  If the work of tree planting had to  ft wait until the streets were graded  it would be two or three years before any trees could go In.  It was finally decided on the  suggestion of the mavor, that the  Park Committee and the Board of  Works should get together and discuss the question of improving  streets.  Coming back to the matter of  cement sidewalks, Aid. Sutherland  said there was a great deal of work  attached to the installing of cement  .side walks. Reports had to be  prepared and by-laws put through  etc, and it waa very necessary that  all the work should be done at  one time. People should know  that if they neglect or forget to put  in their applications at the proper  time they would have to stand  over until another year, it was a  matter of borrowing money when  sidewalks were put in, and il was  impossible to issue separate debentures for a hundred or two hundred dollars.  The clerk was instructed to ad  vertise for applications for sidewalks, and to point out that applications could not be considered  which were not in by a specified  time.  Ihe apparent disregard of some  automobile for speed regulations  was next under consideration.  Mayor Jones said he had asked the  chief constable to go around and  advise owners to exercise care.  The council had no wish to inflict  any hardship upon drivers, but it  was a question of public safety.  He believed that lately certain visiting cars from Vernonhad been the  w,.rst offenders. He hoped the  warning would have a good effect.  The action of the O. K. Lumber  Co. in piling lumber on the vacant  lot near the Presbyterian church  again came up. It was mentioned  that Dr. Bovce had been notified  that a by-law was being prepared  dealing with the matter, so that if  he was required to remove the  lumber he could not say he had  not known. The clerk said that  Dr. Bovce had questioned ihe right  of the city to interfere in the matter.  Mr. G. C. Rose addressed the  council on the scheme to advance  local time one hour during the  summer months. He had Drought  up the suggestion at the last meeting of the Boatd of Trade, but from  want of time it had been rushed  through without proper consideration. He did not think that people  generally realized the benefits  which the change would confer.  Bv moving forward the hands of  the clock so us to start work one  hour earlier in tho morning .,n  extra hour of daylight would be  gained at night, a fact which had  an important bearing upon the  health and enjoyment of young  people engaged say in the stores,  Continued en page 2  Next Week's Sunday School  Convention  The Sundav-School convention  takes place next Tuesday and Wednesday, when representatives will  be present from nil over the valley.  Several important addresses and  papersbearing uponSunday-School  work will be given by the Rev.  I. W. Williamson, provincial Sunday-School secretary, Mrs. Dr. McKay, of Vancouver, and others.  Mrs. McKay is a specialist on the  subject of elementary work, and in  addition to giving two papers on  the subject, will give a model  lesson to a primary class. Some  of the best speakers and workers  of the Okanagan will give papers  on such subjects as " The Superintendent," " The Sunday - School  Teacher," " The Bible Cla��s," " The  Triangular Boy," and " Boy Scouts."  Everyone is welcome to participate  in the discussion. Special music  will be given at both evening  sessions.  Mr. Andrews, of Calgary, arrived  Saturday on a visit to his daughter,  Mrs. J. Ball.  The Rev. D. J. Welsh will occupy his own pulpit again next Sunday evening. Mr. A. Crowcroft,  from Bridlington, will sing during  the service.  The Rev. I. W. Williamson will  preach in the morning at the Presbyterian church and in the evening  at the Methodist church.  MrB. K. F. Oxley will not receive  again until further notice.  The Brotherhood of ihe Baptist  church next Sunday afternoon will  be addressed by the Rev. 1. W.  Williamson, Provincial Superintendent of Sunday Schools who is  visiting Kelowna for the convention. His subject will be, " Vigor.  Vision and Victory." Mr. Alfred  Crowcroft, late of Bridlington, F.ng.  will contribute solos. As this is  the last meeting of the season,  ladies are invited to be present.  Rutland News.  From our own correspondent.  We are all sorry to hear of Will  Schell's illness and hope that he  will continue to improve.  Russel Woolsey returned last  week after a holiday of three  months duration.  Thomas Cooper has been appointed water bailiff for the 1st and  2nd sub-divisions of the Central  Okanagan Lands Co.  Mr. Roe, of Quebec province,  who has purchased the lot formerly  owned by Mr. Bouchard, is staying  with Mr. Eldridge.  The missionary s-rvice at the  Methodist church last Sunday evening was not very well attended  owing to the bad roads but a record  collection was subscribed after a  concise and explanatory talk from  the pastor.  The band of musicians (?) who  serenaded the newly-married couple last Monday night, cannot be  complimented on the score of  quality; but great quantities of  music (?) can be and was made  out of instruments of the " tin can "  order, together with staccato notes  from revolvers and more or less  sweet voices arising in dis-union,  proclaimed the popularity of the  genial water bailiff.  a  tnmore  Notes  W. j. Rankin is building a barn  on his property.  Mr. Hughes, of Indian Iliad,  Sask., arrived in the valley Monday.  Another new arrival was Mr.  Green, of Sherbrooke, Que., who  came by Monday's boat.  P. A. Scott, who spent the  winter in Revelstokc, returned to  ���he valley last week.  A. Dawson is busy this week  erecting buildings on his property,  which is situated at the corner of  Glenmore Drive and Ellison Road.  Mr. and Mrs. R. E. J. Hunt and  little son arrived from Montreal  Monday last to make their home  in Glenmore.  A. Dawson made a trip to Kere-  meos last week where he purchased  a splendid team of roan d'ivers.  Gordon Kerr, of Sherbrooke,  Que., arrived Monday with a carload of effects for his father, Mr.  G. H. Kerr.  Mr. Aitkin, formerly of Fort  William, Out., has returned to  Kelowna from a visit to the coast,  and' intends to make his home  here.  G. M. Stanley, of Quebec, and  his brother, of Winnipeg, visited  the valley last week, inspecting  their Glenmore property.  Mr. and Mrs. Ferguson and  daughter, of Picton, Ont., arrived  in the valley Saturday last. They  will make their home with Mr. and  Mrs. J. S. McKenzie.  Conservatives Carry Every Seat  Except One  McBride Heads Poll at Victoria - Opposition Consists of One  Socialist   -    Liberals Have No Representative in the  New Legislature   -   Practically Unanimous  Endorsement of Railway Policy  That the McBride government  ���is the result of to-day's elections  would be returned to power was  of course a foregone conclusion.  The bold and comprehensive  seheme of railway development  upon which they had appealed to  the country was sufficient guaian-  tee for that. But it was hardly  expected, in view of the energetic  campaign which has been carried  on by the Liberals at ihe election,  but that they would be able to  place at least one or two members  in the House to champion their  cause. They have failed to do  so, and it has remained to Nanaimo  to furnish the semblance of an opposition in the person of John  PUce, the Socialist���surely a Place  of honor I  Very little interest was evidenced locally in the election owing to  the absolute certainty of the result  Constituency  Alberni   Atlin   Cariboo (2)....

We are glnd to learn that our  Church of England services at  Reid's Landing (Miss Rcid's house)  are to be resumed, commencing  Sunday next.  The Messrs.

SCHOF1ELD    R. P. Pettipiece  Rev. Herdman's Farewell  The Rev. A. W. K. Herdman  preached his farewell sermons to  the Presbyterian congregation Sunday last. Large congregations were  present on both occasions, especially in the evening, when the  commodious auditorium waa almost filled, many from other  denominations being present. The  rev. gentleman's last words were a  stirring appeal for the acceptance  of the claims of Christ and confession before the world. Several  in the congregation were visibly  affected.  Al the close of the prayer-meeting on Wednesday following Mr.  and Mrs. Herdman were presented  with a congratulatory address and  well-filled purse by the members  of the congregation and others.  Mr. D. McEachern returned  Tuesday from a visit to Nicola and  Agassiz.  Mr. A. W. Agnew of Peachland  was a visitor in town Tuesday.  Dr. Boyce has purchased the  corner opposite the Presbyterian  church from Mr. Spedding.  The alarm of fire which stirred  people out of their beds at an early  hour last Saturday morning, proved  to be nothing very serious. An  old building on Mr. McTavish's  property in Glenmore had caught  probably through the agency of  some sleeping tramp.  Mr. Jas. Campbell, of Miami,  Man., purchased from Mr. D. H.  Rattenbury a block of land on  Ethel street.  Constable Ashton Dead  Charge Against James Now  Murder  The Penticton Constable Ashton  whose shooting created such a sensation last week died this afternoon  at 3.30. Little hope was nter-  tained from the first for his .^cov-  ery, as the bullet had passed  through the upper part of the brain  and could not be located. James,  who in the preliminary hearing  practically exonerated his fellow  prisoner Wilson from blame in the  affair, will have to face a trial for  murder.  James, who by the way gave his  name as Walter Boyd, admitted  shooting the officer in the state  room on the boat, and compelling  Wilson to escape with him. The  trial will take place at the assizes  in Vernon in May.  Fatal Accident to Ex-Mayor  Husband of Vernon  The sad news has been received  from Winnipeg of the death of Ex-  Mayor Husband, of Vernon, the  result of a fall whilst riding, his  horse slipping on a sttect-car rail.  Mr. Husband who is Major of  the Vernon squad of the B. C.  Horse was in Winnipeg undergoing  a course of instruction to fit him  lor the command. He had completed the course and was to return  to Vernon the next day.  Mr. Husband was highly respected in Vernon having been twice  Mayor of the city. He was an  Englishman by birth, and 37 years  of age.  Athletic Smoker Is  Successful Event  The popularity of athletic entertainments was again demonstrated  by the large crowd which at'ended  the " smoker" given last night under the auspices of the Fire Brigade Athletic Association. Ihe  affair was well organized and  carried out without a hitch, one  event following another without  any tedious waiting.  Dr. Huycke acted aa chairman  throughout.  The proceedings opened with an  exhibition with the punch ball by  Mr. Newmarsh, showing some exceedingly rapid manipulation.  This was followed by a display  of dumbell exercises and vaulting  by the members of the gymnasium  under the leadership of Mr. Fool,  the instructor, and gave evidence  (if the progress which has been  made during the short time since  the apparatus arrived. The "funny  business" was provided by Mr.  Pettman, who managed to keep  the audience in a good humor,  judging by ihe laughter which  greeted his efforts,  A lightweight boxing bout by E.  Hoy and J. Pelligrew come next  followed by a double event in  which fencing by Messrs. J. F.  Burne and Errington, and singlesticks by Messrs. Petlman and  Foot, were alternated.  1 he Japanese sword play had  been looked forward to with some  interest, and certainly the audience  were not disappointed. Two local  Japs, H. Fuji to and J. Kawahata,  handled the sticks a9 though their  lives depended upon it, and their  furious onslaught was a sfunp contrast with the more gentlemanly  fencing manoeuvres which had pie-  ceded them. Bare-footed, but wilh  ample protection for the head,  shouldeis and sides, they grasped  their ''swords" wilh both hands  like a battle axe, and went at it  hammer and tongs, not the least  amusing part being their continued  exclamations. 1 here was a pause  for breath after a few minutes of  this and the onlookers surely  thought the combatants had had  enough. The chairman, however,  naively sniiounced that that was  only the first round, which information raised yells of delight.  There was an air of strenuous reality about the exhibition which put  the rest of the programme into the  shade.  The gymnasium squad then gave  an exhibition of parallel bar wotk,  in which some difficult feats were  really well done.  Two young pupils of Mr. Mac-  donald, Masters Brunette ard  Lemon gave a wrestling match in  which some good falls were made,  the first and the third going lo  Lome Lerr-on's credit.  During an interval of some five  or ten minutes, the stage was rearranged, and Messrs. Bert Johnson  and 1. MacRae, heavyweight boxers put in an appearance. The  result of their contest however was  unexciting, neither side apparently  gaining much advantage.  Another pair of Japanese, the  Mimori Brothers gave a fine exhibition of the mysterious art of  "jiu-jitsu." Ihe rapidity of their  movements, and the contortions  into which the lithe and supple  bodies of these two powerlul little  men were thrown drew forth the  heartiest applause. At times it  was almost impossible to follow  their movements. Thty would  close quickly, and then a jerk, a  twist, a flash of bare feet, and a  Jap was laid on his back wilh a  resounding slap. A ceremonious  "kow-tow" would pricede and  i-.n'l each bout.  The middle-weight boxing waa  the best display in that line, but  here again there was little cause  for excitement. Fisher, of Wood's  Lake, and Patten, of Summerland,  were the combatants, the latter  evidently having the advantage in  guarding and hitting power, though  Fisher showed considerable quickness of action.  A comic boxing bout, in which  the green pupil suddenly developed skill and knocked out his  instructor, nnd the singing of the  National Anthem closed the affair.  A meeting will be held Saturday  at 8 p.m. for the purpose of organizing an " Overseas Club " a movement which has become very popular in other places. The Orchard City Record.

MEETING OF CITY COUNCIL  Continued from nan*- I  giving them another hour in thr  evening fur sport nnd recreation.  I lr had LK'cn asked especially bv  the members of the (ire brigade to  Ijrin^ the matter forward. At present it waa practically impossible  lor them to cet any practice in the  lacrosse teams, as it waa dark  almost before they could get start-  i-d. I he principal objections raised  Id the scheme had been the banks.  I hey had also been in the way of  the half-holiday. Me did not think  t'ley should be allowed to block  what promised to be a very popu-  lar movement.  Several of the members of the  ouncil expressed themselves as  l.eing in favor of the arliem**, bul  n seemed doubtful wliclhei the  i ouncil had any power to pass a  by-law dealing with the subject.  Mayor Jones suggested that the  Retni] Merchants' Association be  ipprnached. If they were all in  favor of the movement it should  not be difficult to carry it out. Ihe  subject was then dropped with a  pfomisethat the council would take  it up again at the next meeting.  It was decided lo hold a special  meeting the following day for the  consideration <��f certain by-laws  which were before the council.  The council met again 1 uesday  morning.  Mr. I*. S. Coates waited on the  council in reference to the opei ing  of the lane which ran behind the  hotel.     I l<- did   not   think the citV  would gain anything by taking such  n course. The lane was one which  was very little* used, not' was ever  likely to be. If it was [nit through  as suggested it would leave very  little* room for any extension of the  hotel. It was quite probable a new  hotel   would be built at some time  on the site, and it would have* to  be a good hotel, and would req lire  all the ground possible. TI ere  would be a serious inconvenience  caused if part of the hotel buildings  had to be on the other side of a  lane. Mr. Coates asked that the  matter be left in abeyance until he  had had an opportunity of interviewing the owner of the hotel  site.     I his was agreed to.  I he council then went into committee to consider by-law No. 105,  to amend the pool-room bv-law,  106, and to amend the building bylaw, which were afterwards given  a second reading.  A new by-law, No. 107, was  then introduced.reading as follows:  I hat no brewery, stable, sawmill, chemical works, paint works,  soap works, livery stable, piggery,  blacksmith shop, foundry, laundry,  wash-house, cabins, or other businesses, which, if unrestricted as to  location would tend to reduce the  value of assessable property, shall  be constructed or carried on in any  part of the city without permission  from the city council."  Aid. Copeland mentioned that  an application had been received  from Mr. A. R. Davy to rent the  city nuisance ground.  Mr. Rose reminded the council  of their promise of the previous  day respecting the day-light saving  scheme, and the following resolution was passed :  " 1 hat the city council are in  I favor of the proposition to advance local time one hour from the  first day of April to the thirty-first  day of August, inclusive, and recommend its adoption generally by  the business men and citizens."  The meeting then adjourned.  Round-up at Dreamland  What ia   more   exciting   than   n  1 greal " round up " on   the   rolling  prairie, right in the heart of a great  cattle country ?     It   is   a   thrilling  sight to witness llieonwatd rush of  40,000 head of long-homed catile.  Few of its have lieen privileged to ;  witness such  a   magnificent   spectacle in real life, but all of us   may  see a moil  realistic production  in  moving pictures at Dreamland next I  Wednesday and    1 hursday   afternoon and evening.     I his is something   very    different     from    the!  "staged*' Western picture, being an ;  j actual series of moving  photos   of  j the fall round   up   on   the   "Y6"|  Ranch. Wyoming.     The   pictures  dhow .the   cowboys   at   woik   and I  play    fancy rope  spinning,  won-'  deiful wild hoise race, roping and  taming wild horses, bucking bron-  cho riding and   all   the   thiilling,  nerve testing leats   of   a   real   big  round up.  There are three reels of these  pictures (3,000 feet) showing a  last vanishing phase ol pioneer  life. The pictures also include a  few Indian scenes, showing tribal  dances and interesting ceremonies.  Coal   Delivered   Through  Pipes  A proposal wliich if adopted  would revolutionize the coal mining business of the world, has been  launched bv Sir William Ramsay,  the noted iLtiglish scientist. He  suggests that much or the expense  of coal mining and handling might  be avoided if the coal were turned  into gas in retorts in the bowels of  the earth. 1 he pas thus generated  could either be distributed by pipe  lines, or used at the pit head for  producing electricity which could  be distributed from there.

KELOWNA FURNITURE CO.  " We Make Homes Happy"  Commercial Mink Breeding  The United States Biological Survey of the agricultural department  ha I secured the co-op;ration of the-  National Zoological Park at Wash,  ington for experiments in breeding  mink for the purpose of ascertaining the possibilities of rearing them  in capitivity for commercial pur.  poses. This has never been attempted by the government heretofore, but it is hoped by the combined efforts of the two organizr-  tions something of practical itn  portance can be accomplished.  I'he fact that the mink is a native  of the district of Columbia gives  promise to the undertaking.  The main object is to secure  data relative to the best methods  of rearing mink for their fur,  especially as to details of housing,  feeding, mating and caring for  them. Some simple pens have  been constructed in the Zoological  Park for about six of the animals  in order to start the experiments,  and additional ones will be built  as occasion demands.  Indians Slaughter Game  Wholesale arrests of Indians in  the neighbourhood of Mara, in the  Okar.agan district have been made  by Deputy Game Warden Burton  and Constable Price on charges of  slaying deer out of season. The  two officers recently discovered  the carcases of 13 deer hidden in  the bush. After waiting close by in  concealment they finally arrested  the Indians. In addition to the 13  deer seized, there were evidences  that others had been killed and  taken away.  Mounted Police Barracks at  Regina Burnt  The barracks of the Royal North  West Mounted Police, at Regina,  were almost entirely destroyed by  fire last week.  The total lesi will be about $125,-  000, which is covered by insurance,  [he buildings destroyed date back  to 1882, when a depot division ol  the R. N. \V. M.

In Penticton, trade   licenses are  to   be   graded   according   to the  amount of floor   space   used by  merchants.  One phase of the British coal  strike and of the general labor  troubles in Great Britain is the result it will have on immigration to  Canada. Mr. Southall, of the Can-  adianNorthern immigration department, is of the opinton that the result will be a decrease, rather than  an increase, of the normal amount  of immigration from the old country.

East Kelowna News  (Krom ouro.vn correspondent)  No more will " the sword ol  Damocles" be cited aa an illustration of punishment hanging over  the head of the evil-doer when one  hems of the awful punishment  which threatens the luckless members of the B. C. Light Horse on  the Benches, who do not attend  the drills in town. In short, the  punishment is that they will be  deprived of their uniforms. Our  biblical friends will be reminded of  this passage, " from him that hath  not shall be taken even that which  he hath." Depriving some of the  members of the B. C. Light Horse  on the Benches of their uniforms  would be as easy as depriving a  cow of its wings.  One of Mr. Moody's children  was bitten in the face by his puppy.  We are glad to say it is not very  serious.  Yet another sign that spring has  begun was shown us in the shape  of an automobile on the Benches  last week. We are wondering how  the car ever climbed the grade,  which, at the best of times is not  exactly a billiard table, and at  the present is in such an indescribably filthy mess as to be a disgrace  to those in authority.  The Canadian Pacific Railway  announce that a corps of expeit  engineers will be sent to Frank,  Alberta, to examine the over-hanging top of Turtle Mountain with a  view to reporting on the possibility  of dynamiting it. It is hoped that  in this way a repetition of the disaster of nine years ago may be prevented.  Over 10,000 tons of dynamite  has been used on excavation work  on the Panama canal during the  present year. The old machinery,  abandoned by the French, will be  sold by the U. S. government as  scrap iron and is estimated to sell  for $2,000,000.  Children are much more likely to contract the contagious diseases when they  have colds. Whooping cough, diphtheria,  scarlet fever and consumption are diseases  that are often contracted when the child  has a cold. Thati is why all medical  authorities say beware of colds.

RACIAL OliORS  The White Mkifukfltf Mi a IHstlnetJvi  Natural Smell Same as tlie Negro.  ; That every human being und every  I animal possesses an Individual odoui  we know, although generally our own  ! sense of smell cannot distinguish one  from another, for the more sensitive  scent of the dog does this with ease  from the slightest traces, That the  personal odour of an entire race has  a character of Us own we also know  In most cases this odour ts displeasing to members uf different ruces. The  odour of the negro is often spoken ot  by white ruces us offensive, but It  will be news to most of un that the  odour uf Europeans lu quite us objectionable to the Japanese. A Japanese physician, Dr. Hurturu Aduckt,  has recently published some remarkable observutions un this subject.  "This physician states that 'It \a  Certain that tlie Western peoples possess a natural uduur which Is nut perceived by them, but which Is clearly  perceptible to tlie yellow race.' After  ft certain length of time, however,  both Japanese and Chinese who have  taken up their residence lu tiurope he-  come habituated tu this uduur, It being  the experience uf t he.su European  residents that the uduur of Europeans, which at first was intolerable,  after several weeks' residence becomes supportable.  "Every living animal possesses In  general u characteristic uduur  horses, dugs, cuts, etc., man himself  having an omul)uUou which is a part  of the race and wliich may be individual and variublc with age and condition of health. The sudoriferous  glandu pruduce the emanation perceived by the gauss ol smell, although  It Is true that the Chinese and Japanese have little ur no odorous einaua-  tlou. When these races perspire, their  perspiration has itu uduur, a fact  which -Is doubtless chiefly a quest ion  of race, although also probably one  of alimentary regime. Iu the white  races observers who possess an acute  sense uf smell can distinguish solely  by this means ihuse persons who follow a vegetarian regime and those  who eat meat, al times the difference  between these two classes of persons  being very pronouueed The Individuals who nourish themselves on meat  exhale, under the influence of the fermentation of cutaneous secretions, n  much stronger odour than vegetarians.

"The Japanese are chiefly vegetarians, Mid for 'his reason their skin  exhales odours which are scarcely  perceptible: but here clothing play.-  its role, for it we superimpose mnnj  layers of tissue closely around the  body, perspiration is prudmed, and  with it the uduur of dlsuHH.milut.on.  Till. WOMiKKI'lL WATCH  Few pieces uf machinery show mure  marvellous tenures than that ol the  watch. As a general proposition it  may he staled lhat a watch is the  smallest, most dulleale instrument uf  the same number of parts that has  ever been devised. About cue hundred  and Beventy-flU' different pieces uf  material euter Into Its construction,  und upwards of (Weuly-four hundred  separate operations are comprised iu  Its manufacture. Certain of the tacts  connected with its performance are  almost Incredible, when considered us  u whole. A blaeli.-mill. strikes several  hundred blows on lis anvil In a day |  andi us a mutter of course, is niad  when Sunday cu tiles; hut the roller  jewel uf a watch makes every day  ��� and day after day ��� 432,000 Impacts against tlie fork, or 157,680,000  blows during the course of a year,  without stop or rest ��� or some  8,168,600.000 blows during ihe space  of twenty years, the period for which  a watch Is usual 1% guaranteed tu keep  good time. Hut the wonder of It dues  not cease hen-. It has been calculated  that the power thai moves the watch  is equivalent tu only four times the  force used la a flea's jump. The  watch-power is, therefore, what might  be termed the equivalent of a four  fleu-power. One horse-power would  suffice to Operute 270,000,000 watches.  Furthermore, the balance-wheel of a  watch Ik moved by this four flea-  power one and forty-three oue-huu-  d red ths inches with each vibration, or  35&8*>i miles continuously in one year.  Not much oil Is required to lubricate  the utile machine on its 5600-mlls  run. It hikes only one-tenth of a drop  to oil the entire machinery of a year  Bf!r,v Ice.  tile on Mai s.  Mr. Klgle, the author of "The Night  Skies of a Year," agrees with the  statement recently made by a French  scientist thut life on Mars has evolved  In the same way as It has done on the  earth. It Is, he thinks, a reasonable  conclusion at which to arrive, and  adds: -"Why should nut life evolve  (thut Is, ou Mhis) tu the sume wuy as  It hus done on the earth? And not only  so ou Mars, but on ull the other  planetu? Life will uppear on those  planets which ure ut present without  It when the planets are ready for the  reception and the evolution of life���  und not until then. Why should the  earth be an exception, etlher to the  rule of the existence of life, or of Its  evolution?"  The (lest Temperature  31r    Benjamin    Ward    Richardson  found,   after   long   experiments   and  practice, lhat ti4 degrees Kuhr. Is the  best   temperature   in   which   lo  conduct mental labour.    If the temperature   talis   below   this   ths   mind   be- |  comes drowsy and tnucttve, and If It ���  rises much ubove there Is a relaxed j  state of tbs body and mind which soon ,  leads to fatigue ami exhaustion,   'It |  Ib Important thai the temperature be j  the snmo in all parts of the room and  that It be steadily maintained.
