 itorfc  VOL VI.   NO. 2.  KELOWNA. BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 4, 1913.  $1.50 Per Annum.  Annual Meeting of  Hill.  CHANGE   OF NAME  TO KELOWNA  AGRICULTURAL  AND  HORTICULTURAL ASSOCIATION  The annual general meeting of the  AgriouKural and Trades Association  of Okanagan Mission (henceforth to be  known aB the "Kelowna Agricultural  and Horticultural Association") was  held last Saturday afternoon in Hay  mcr's hall, some thirty-five member!  being preaent. Mr. F. It. E. DeHart,  president for the past year in the  chair.  Amongst the firat matters of business to be brought up was the changing of the name, as above, a 'proposal  whioh has been discussed for some  years past. The original name waa  adopted before Kelowna, as a city  existed, but its use now was consider*  ed misleading. A resolution wae passed m^lr^ng the change indicated.  A discussion also took place on the  rental of the new exhibition building  for a skating rink, and the action of  the directors in leasing it to Mesars.  Anderson & Foggaras, of Kamloops at  830 per month was ratified. The proprietors oi the rink were to bear all  expense of putting in the ueoeseary  floor.  On motion of Mr. J. Lytle, Mr. H.  W. Raymer was made an honorary life  member .of. tho association,, a tribute  to the long and valuable services  which be hud rendered the asso'i.itioii  for many years past.  In replying Mr. Raymer thanked the  members for the honor conferred upon  him and made many interesting references to .the paBt history ofthe Association with which he had been connected since its formation, nineteen  years ago.     ,  The successful nature of this year's  show and sports, tbe p>ovision of s  fire new building, anu \i���e general M.  denciea of progress which had baan  made drew forth many comments from  the variouB speakers, and the directors  were thanked for the energy and ability which they had displayed.  The financial statement showed t  deficit of 8566.63 on tho year's work  ing, but this was due to increased ex  penses, outlay in improving tile  grounds, and in additional prizes.  The receipts generally had shown a  big increase over last year. The gate  receipts, due no doubt to tha novelty  of tho "Round-up" had been ovar  ��1500 Bs compared with 8640 last year.  Tha returns from members Tees too,  hnd been 8100 more. 8700 more had  been paid in prizes. 8500 in improvements to grounds and 8300 in expsn-  K�� incidental to the "Roundup".  Much of this exponBO, however, waa of  a permanent nature and would not  bo needed another year. The balance  shift for the year was as follows:  BALANCE SHEET  Liabilities  Members fees for 1014 retained8188.'35  Accounts payable      333.00  Rills payable.    3000.00  Landowners do notFavor  Dyking Municip��lity?

Stockwell and,'  F. R. E. DoHart.  A meeting of the directors was arranged for Saturday next when tha  officers will bo elected.  Mr. A. E. Ashcroft, engineer for the  C.N.R., was in town from Saturday to  Monday last wook-ond.  At the Methodist church next. Sunday, lhe Rev, W. Vance will preach in  the morning.and the Rev. D. .T.Walsh  In tha evening.  Mr. Thos. MoCuaigi n Montreal broker Is at present visiting with Mr. and  Mrs. J. 8. MeKenrie of Glenmore.  The residents of Mission Creek have  turned down flat any suggestion of  forming a dyking municipality in that  district. At the meeting hold on Thursday Inst, in the Mission Creek school,  the scheme did not find one single  supporter, and after considerable discussion tho meeting adopted an  amendmont to a motion, whioh was  proposed by Mr. D. Lookio. This was  that a deputation of people directly  interested in the overflow of Miaaion  Creek interview the government, the  deputation taking with them a petition signed by the residents; that  that Messrs. Casorso's offor of defraying tho expenso of one of the ,lelo-  gates be acceptod, and that the board  of trade be requested to bear the expenses of two of the delegates, the  signers of tho petition being responsible for the expenso of a furthor two,  making five delegates in all.  Mayor .Jones was elected to tho  chair, and he explained at length the  meaning of many paints in the Drainage, Dyking, and Irrigation Aot, 1013,  He mentioned that most of them wero  aware that the matter of Mission  Creek had been discussed at the meetings of the board of trade now for  a good many years. At the last meeting certain information had been laid  before tbe board, from which it appeared that it would be impossible to  get the government to advance any  large sum sufficient to put tne creek  into good condition unless the people  of thu district, particularly thai affected by the overflow, did something  themselves.  His worship mentioned that when he  was last in Viotoria in connection  with the creek, nnd was instrumental  in some way in securing lhe grant  that, ���el then obtained, the* "iTiblic  Works Engineer had stated definitely  that no further grant would bs mado  until the people took some stops them  selves to raise dollar for dollar with  that of the government; and while they  had nothing definite from tho cabinet,  a letter from the Hon. I'rioe Ellison  in conjunction with a letter from Mr.  Hamilton Lang to the board of trado,  would lead them to infer that the  government would contribute a moiety  of the cost for permanent improvements.  The speaker pointed out that in  forming a distriot municipality thoy  would havo to take over their roads  and bridges, lovy assessments, and  would have power to raise money by  bonds and debenture*.  Another course that might bs opon  to them would be the formation of a  municipality under the Dyking Act. If  they did this they would simply take  over the lunds affeoted by Mission  Creek, and his worship read at length  from the aot oovering its main points  Speaking roughly he supposed at  least 876,000 would ba required to bo  raised and spent upon the creek, Of  that amount the government would  contribute half, ao that it would be  neooasary for them to put up 837,000.  The aet gave power to borrow  on debenturea, bearing 6 por cent, and  issued over 40 years. Personally he  did not approve of long term debentures; 20 to 28 years would In his  opinion bs bettor. Then supposing  they were successful in carrying the  scheme though they would receive  assistance from the government in  floating the debentures. The government might also take the debentures  as security ponding their sale,  At a rough'estimate the Interest and  sinking fund over a certain term of  years would be as follows. Suppose  880,000 woro raised, and lho government put up an equal amount, and  8100,000 were spent on the Creek. The  interest and sinking fund takon on 20  years' debentures would amount to  84,600 per annum. If they borrowed  a 25 year term, this would cost  about 84,200, and on a 40 year  term 83.800. Suppose it were only  necessary to spend 876,000 in the way  of putting tho creok into perfect condition, they themselves to put up 837.-  800, On a 20 year term at 6 per  oant- they would hnve to find 82,800;  a 26 year term 83,200; and 40  years from 82,600 to 82,700. This, oal-  culated on say 10,000 acres, would be  about 26 oenta por acre.  Mr. D.

Tho only disappointing feature was  thc meagre attendance of the public.  Perhaps tho distance from town of tho  show has something to do with this-,  but it is nono the less a little discouraging to those who have worked  to mako so successful an exhibition in  other respects.  Mr. .1. C. Stockwell as president has  given h great deal of time to tho affair as also has Mr. A. Notley, tho  vice-president, and the various members of tho executive committeo. notably Mr. S. d. Weeks, and it is largely due to thoir energy and experience  that tho show and the association generally has attained such promising  proportions. Mr. E. L. Ward makes  an indefatigable secretary and hus  shown thn keenest and ninst untiring  interest in the work.

Council Extend Time  (or Tax Payment  ELECTRIC SIGN REGULATIONS  The faot that only a third of the  current year'B taxes had. been paid up  to date caused the council to extend  the time ot payment in which the discount could be obtained to December  17th. This made necessary the amending of the, tax rate by-law.  A new By-law dealing with projecting eleotrio and other signs was introduced. Clause 9 states that "No  person shall plaoe, suspend or hang  a sign at a less height than ten feet  above the street or sidewalk, nor at a  greater distance than five feet in the  case of an eleotrio sign and two feet  in the case of all other signs in front  of or from the wall of any house, shop  store, building, or plaoe whatsoever.  Such electric Bigns shall not exceed  .Ml square feet in area, and shall be  provided with eleotrie lamps aggregating in power not' less .than two candle  power for eaoh square foot of   Bpnce  i each and every side illuminated."  Plans and specifications of all such  signs must bo plaoed with the oity  clerk, as for a building, and a permit  is to be issued by the building inspector. All Bigns hitherto constructed  and not conforming with the above  dimensions to be removed.  A notification was received from the  Comptroller of Water Rights that a  licence to take water from Mill Creek  and Brant's Creek for use in irrigating within the.city limits would be  issued upon payment of a fee of 832.  It was docided to apply to Messrs.  R. Paul, D. McMillan and F.R.E. De-  Hart, as tho principal landowners in-  torostod in tho use of irrigation water  within the city.to bear the coat of the  licence  A petition was received requesting  the council to fill in thc Blough on  Coronation Avenue between Ethel and  Richter streets. This was referred to  the Board of Works. .  Tho mayor reports,   that the polioe  Commissioners had accepted the resig-  stable, and appointed A.

Tucker, engineer in ohargo of the  sewerage work, concerning the turning  into tho sewer of refuse from Messrs.  Casorso's building. He said the city  would bo put to considerable expenso  and trouble if this was not stopped.  A corAmittee w-ero appointed to look  into the matter.  Aldorman Sutherland said he had  heard of a storm-water connection  having been mode but ho vcoiikl not  give particulars. The Health committeo undertook to investigate.  Alderman Copeland reported that owing to the difficulty in gotting tho  right sizo of lumber for the proposed  storm dram on the lane south of Bernard avenue the committee had do  cided to gravel the lane and postpone  tho construction of the drain for the  present.  The finance committee roeommende I  payment of a long list of accounts,  which nro unavoidably hold over til'  next issue.  id pullet,  1st hen,   .1.

He thought it would bo a  good idea if a soho-iiu uould be formulated that would lay the expense equitably on everyone interested.  Mr. Hereron said it was evident that  tlie people at thnt end of tho valley  were not prepared to form a municipality, If the government were approached In a proper way lie thought  they would put up 83000 a year to  keep the creek dear, He did not think  that the people nhould he burdened  with the up keep of the creek at all.  If the creek burst it would cost more  in repairing the roads than the whole  amount   that   he ment ioned.  Mr. Weeks:���"Upon what basis do tho  government refuse to take the responsibility of tlie matter, and ask us to  contribute?"  The chairman:���"The government's  posit inn is this, lhat thoy will nol  hold themselves responsible for streams  that are not navitrahle.

Day:���"As for as a  on Mission creok is  do  nol     think   it   could  por-  be  other expense, apart from the dyking,  in  keeping the creek clear.  The chairman mentioned that there  would lie, and that taxes would he  levied to maintain this.  Mr. Leokio*���"Then it would bo up  to the municipality to undertake this  work?"  The Chairman:���"Yes; once a municipality were formed a corporate body  would  be constituted.''  Mr. Leslie Dilworth asked if it were  possible to carry into effect permanent  works on Mission creek, Personally he  did not think so, as over 100 trees  came down every year.  Mr. M. Hereron:���"It would take  from $1200 to '$1800 a year to the  end of time, to clear the timber that  came down whether they had a dyke  or not. Gravel from the banks on the  K.L.O. side, and the filling up of tbo  creek further down, was the cause of  the greatest trouble.  The chairman stated that Engineer  Girdwood was In,Kelowna last week,  since the meeting of tho board of trade  and ho had learned that what . Mr.  Girdwood recommended was a retaining wall. ,  Mr. Dilworth remarked that ir tho  lako were lowered the creek would  clear itself.  r. J, L, l'ridham thought that it  would be bolter if an annual assessment were made for the clearing out  of Mission Creok, and that everyone  wus in danger of an overflow to pay  a fair proportion, lie was also in  favor of a dyke being constructed at  the lower ond. Jf these two points  WetO provided for the danger of an  overflow would bo overcome, If the  district tinder a municipality would be  liable for damage as a corporate body  Mission Oreok might overflow, as it  had in years gone by, and do a tremendous amount of damage, which  Would have tu be met by increased assessment, and there, would be no know  ing where it would ond. Clearing out  the creok, without any further powers  whatever, would lie thought,, meet ihe  case,  Mr. A. Patterson:���"As far as I ean  BOO, from what the chairman has said,  it would be very foolish for this district to form a municipality, I have  beon here HI yoars, but personally I  have not Buffeted any damage; how-  over, I think it is only right that tho  government should levy a small tax  on those affected by the creek by having it cleaned out, say dollar for ool-  lar. If wo were liable for the overflow I do nol know whore we wonld  gel oil' at. W'y hnve no idea of what  tho cost might be, and I for one would  not favor a municipality of any kind  until 1 knew more ubout  it.  "With regard to some of the land  that is affected, if J bought a piece  of land on Mission Creek that ts subject to overflow, I would not oxpocl  people living up here to put up a dollar towards reclaiming that land. 1  believe that such land could be bought  cheap, about S50 per acre. Tf this  municipality wore formed", and the  land dyked, it would be worth at loASt  8200, and from this point of view we  have no right to contribute a cent."  Mr. Dilworth ���"If wo fdrtned a municipality, and debentures were sold,  there would be a mortgage on thit  district. Would thai interfere with one  in obtaining his title?"  The chairman:���"Not in any way."  Mr. Scott remarked that people who  had lived in the district for a long  time could state that the (-rook hnd  caused an immense amount of damage, and what it had done in the past  it could th again. He, claimed that  an ounce of prevention wns worth  more thnn a pound of curt! any tlm*.  ^Tf people  along the various   parts of  Mr. K. A  inanent job  corned,    T  made."  The chairman:���"Vou will havo to  settle in your own minds exactly what  kind of work you wish to recommend  to have done, and you will have, to  decide how this is going to be done,  I think you arc aware that the creek  bed is pretty well filled up. Il is nil  rigid if it does not overflow its banks  but if it does some of you are going  to lose a great deal of money, nnd !  think it is belter to face the question  now rather than have meetings after  the damage has boon done. The government in their letters slate what  they ore prepared to do. A good  strong deputation might be able to  influence the government to assume  responsibility for the creek. The fact  remains that a great many of you  would be affected by iiti overflow, nnd  if some slaps are not taken to keep  Mission creek in its present bod, it ib  just like let-ting the creek go where  it  likes."  Mr. I). Leokio referring to the informal nature of the discussion, remarked that he would like if someone would  embody the sense of. the meeting in a  motion. 11 was very evident thoj did  not wish a Dyking Municipality. It  was therefore before the meeting  whether they wero going lo ask the  government to do something, and if  ihey wished, also to contribute something with the government.  Mr. T. G, Speer agreed with Mr.  Leckie. He remarked that he did ,not  think lhat Kelowna had ever sent a  deputation ot a serious nature to the  government, If a number of the people interested formed a committee,  and wont up voluntarily he thought  they would get what they wanted, lie  did not believe that dyking would do  Missioti Creek any good.  The chairman���"You thoroughly jUn-  derstand thai the board of trade do  not suggest any particular line of policy at all���thoy are leaving that to  you. Wa simply have the recommendations of the government as to what  ought to be done (in the absence nf  lho report which has not yet been te-  eeived from the government), and wo  have come here to ON'plain the act, and  give such information as we can. If a  dyking municipality is not agreed upon, it is for the meeting'to take some  other course, possibly the appoint  monl of a committee of property-owners lo wail  upon lhe government.''  Mr,  Speer suggested   thai   u committee     of  ton,     possib'y  25.    should  approach Sir liieliard  Mol.rido, and   not  of   PubHo   Works  alone,  matter diroellv before Sir  the Ministe  and put tin  Richard,  Mr. Day asked if 'it would be possible to have nn engineer sen! to jJis-  sioti Creok who would levy so much  each year, and for local men to do lhe  work necessary.  The chairman:���"Thft needs aro immediate.' and if you wait until tho  House meets, a special hill would have  to l)e put through, and nothing would  be done  until   March   or   \pril,">  Mr. Day raised lhe point as to who  would defray the cost of tho committee going  to   Victoria.  Mr. Joseph Casorso suggostod that  three or five mvml>ers go down to  Victoria and wait upon the government. He thought it wns  lhe only thing they could fall  back on. Tt was getting very late  in the year, and as no one seemed to  be in favor of a dyking municipality,  he proposed that three or five people  go to Victoria.. lie would pay the expenses of one of the delegates,  Mr. doBeph Casorso in answer to  a question as to what they proposed  to puts up to the government said.)  To raise 84.000 to 15,000 to put  Mission Creek in fairly good shape for  the next  high water.  The chairman suggested that tho motion should rend: "That three or five  residents go down (o Victoria and  place tho question    of Mission   Crook  before the executive council, and  suggest that au engineer bo sent down  to" survey tho hinds nffetited by an  overflow of |he creek, and that a sum  be ullotcd to this district for the  keeping of Mission Crook within its  bounds."  Mr. D. Leckie offered an amendment  to tho effect that from three to five  people most directly interested In tho  overflow of Mission Creek bo appointed by the meeting lo go down and  interview the government with nt petition) signed by tlie residents and to  ascertain whnt relief coul 1 be obtained; that Mr. Casorso's offer be accepted, and the board af trade requested  to pay the expense of another delo-  gato���if three wore sent down���or of  two IF the number were five, and that  tho signatories to the petition should  be responsible for the remaining delegate or delegates.  Mr. Day asked if they would have  to have an engineer from the government,  The chairman! ��� "The government  .vould require the money lo tin nprnt  under I heir supervision, It is very  necessary that tho committee that go  to the government have something  tangible to present."  i'pon put>ting the amendment to the  meeting il was unanimously carried,  Mr. Casorso withdrawing his motion,  and the following wore appointed ���a  committee: Mr.    -lohn       Casorso,  Scott, Hereron, and Speer. On the  motion of Mr. Patterson and Dilworth  it was resolved to ask the board of  trade to appoint Mayor -lones to bo  included in the deputation, and giveni  power to represent the board of trade  on that committee. It was also resolved thnt the committee appoint od  draft out a petition and lhat Mr.  Reaver -'ones act as secretary to thu  committee.  Mayor Jones in bringing the meeting to a conclusion remarked upon the  huge attendance present and the interest manifested. They would all hope  lhe government would recognize tho  situation and give the necessary grant.  Al a meeting of the committee, held  at the Board of Trade rooms on Monday, tho following petition was agreed  upon Lo be presented lo the government:  "We, tho undersigned settlers and  owners of property in the Mission  Creek Distriot, would again respectfully bring before your attention the dangerous condition of Mission Creok, and  tho possibility of serious damage boing wrought  to our ranches,  "At the present time large sections  of the creek bed aro filled with gravel  deposits, brought down by the rush of  high water last spring, carrying with  it a very large number of trunks of  trees, thus constituting a grave condition to be faced early next spring.  "We consider that the work carried  out by your department under the direction of Mr. Girdwood, Public Works!  Engineer, has been along the right line  of permanent work, anil we assure you  that the expenditure in the past has  been well Spent-, As evidence of this  very little damage this year whb caused to the ranches adjacent to the  creek, or to the public roads running  through the district as has been the  case  iu  lho  past.  With tho creek in its present condition -WO fully believe that all this  work towards a permanent nature will  be nidified unless a further grant is  made for work this winter. In addition to this, from two to three miles  of Mission Uoiul will be liable to inundation: two large expensive bridges  crossing the Mission Creek will be liable to damage, ami one mile of the  Lake Shore Road, built two years ago,  at a largo expense to the government,  will be liable to serious damage, and  may possibly be swept  away.  "We would therefore respectfully and  urgently recommend that a sufficient  sum of money should be granted and  authority glvon io expend without delay to continue the work outlined by  the engineer Ihis spring in the building of wing dams nt critical nlnees,  the removnl of all drift timbers, ami  steps taken lo prevent llio sliding of  banks opposite pease's ranch  "We consider that n sum of from  83,000 to 81,0(10 spent in this manner  each year would remove the possibility of any serious damage to the land  adjacent, and the roads and bridges  in the district."  After this petition has been circulated and signed by the residents in Mission Creok n further meeting will be  called to complete nrranyoments for  the deputation's visit to Victoria;  ii  (J>< >  ti  W.M.Parker&Co.

HELPING FARMERS TO FARMS  The statu of Washington contains  many million acres of good land that  enn ho bought very, cheaply, but cannot ho brought under cultivation except by an investment of capital that.  is beyond tho means of the ordinary  individual settler. Thia land In ihe  western part of the state from which  the timber has been ml. thc clearing  of which for cultivation costs from  fifty to a hundred and fifty dollars an  acre, or arid land that requires an  irrigation system.  Once the improvements have been  made, the land will be worth all it  costs; but the individual settler haa  not thc capital to make the improvements. The state proposes io  supply him with it���or, rather, to furnish him tho means of supplying himself.  A law passed this year authorizes  the formation of Development District*  which may issue bonds and with the  proceeds buy and improve loggsd-ofT  and add lands within the district;  then sell them to settlers at cost, plus  five per c��nt, on twenty-year payments  at an interest rate one-half of one  per cent above that paid by the. district on its bonds. Not more than  twenty acres of Iogged-off or forty  acres of arid land can be sold to ono  purchaser, and to discourage speculators the title cannot be assigned until threo nnnual payments have been  made and the purchaser has actually  resided on the land two years.  Under this arrangement a man with  hardly any capital can get posession  of land that is ready for cultivation���  which makes this about the most interesting agricultural credit scheme  we have yet come across.���Saturday  Evening Post.  Over twelve thousand letters have already been received thia year at the  Dominion Government Forest Nursery  Station at Indian (lead (Sask,) and  almost two and throe-quarter mJlHon  trees distributed for planting on the  farms of Alberta, Saskatchewan and  Manitoba. To accommodate thlB constantly increasing demand, a branch  nursery has recently been established  near Saskatoon. Nine inspectors supervise these prairie-farm plantations,  nnd give personal advice to the farmers and the Forestry Branch, Ottawa,  issues bulletins free of charge to anyone interested in this work in Oanatla  Of   elsewhere.  BELIEF IN PROGRESS  "Progress" is a modern word and a  modem idea. Originally it' meant a  journey. English annals refer often to  a "royal progress," meaning a king'n  journey. It was only in the time of  Shakespeare that it began to be used  in Hh present significance. Bacon was  a pioneer in using the adjective "pro"  gresBive."  "Advance" and "advancement" have  the same sort of history. They used to  moan promotion, and only acquired  their present ubo at the close of the  Middle Ages. "Improve" and "Improvement" referred originally to  bringing land under cultivation. Only  in tho seventeenth century did they  acquire tho , meaning of "making  better."  It is hard for moderns to get tho  viewpoint of the middle ages because  so many ideas that men take for  granted these days were entirely foreign to tho world before the Renaissance. Thc notion of a1 development of  civilization wor heresy. Men looked  back to the Golden Age. They were  living in degenerate days. The universe  'was on the road to destruction. The  end might come at anytime.  One of the great achievements , of  modern civilization has been the creation of the belief in progress. A better  comprehension of history has shown  a progressive development. People are  becoming impressed with the belief  that by taking thought thoy can hasten the coming of a better day.  Under the spell of the middle ages  things were necessarily allowed to  drift. Such progress us was made tame  largely from blind 'experimenting, The  experiments that failed lo fit in with  tho facts of human nnture went to the  wall. Thoso that happened to be along  tho line of progress persisted.  Now it is evident that reason can be  mado to supplant this sort of blind  chance. Within tho last few years, for  instance, the sociologists have accumulated data i'n which they have basr*.  a fair analysis of the cause of poverty. .Many of these causes it Is perfectly possible to get rid of.  With modern knowledge, and wiih  the inspiration born of the idea : embodied in the modern word "progress"  there is no reason why there should  not he an advance all along the line,  incomparably greater than history has  ever shown before.  THE WORLD'S MILK RECORD  Fuel oil consumption by the United  States navy this year is estimated at  30,000,000 gallons.  Eminent Bess, a Jersey cow at Roy  Cross Farm, Houghton County, Michigan has broken the world's milk  record.  In one year, under the supervision of  the .Michigan Agricultural College, she  hus produced 18,783 pounds of milk,  yielding 1,132 pounds, 9 ounces of butter.  The record for Jersey cows was previously held by Jacoba Irene; with  17,258 pounds of milk, and H(.ss has  also beaten by 179 pounds of milk tlie  record for Guernsey cows, which wa��|  held by Spotswood Daisy Pearl.  Stopping ground fires in the forest  by trenching can now bo easily and  quickly done by planting a long string  of dynamite cartridges in advance of  the fire, at intervals of two feet. When  these aro exploded simultaneously by  means of an electric current, the result is a ditch four feet .wide nnd two  feet deep, which effectuaMt slops the  fire. ��  GERMAN BANK, MANAGED AND  OPERATED BY WOMEN  The firat Gorman women's bank, an  institution for women, managed by  women, which was founded at Berlin  threo years .'go, is slowly but' surely  developing, both ' in size and importance. The bank now employs more  thun fifty persons, and it has been  necessary to add a number of rooms  to the original premises.  Thero are altogether fifty rooms and  several new branches of business aro  now included, among them a legal  department presided over by a woman  doctor of law, whore al. information  relating to laws and by-lawa may be  obtained by the customer-..  The businese done during the past  year was satisfactory in every way. 5  per cent dividends being paid. It is  confidently expected that the present  year will show a still further advance.  There are now twenty-seven technical  ly trained foresters in the permanent  employ    of    the    Dominion   Forestry  Branch.  SIR ROBERT BALL DEAD  Sir Robert Stawell Ball, Lowndaan  Professor of Astronomy at Cambridge  University and for the past twenty-  ono years director of the Cambridge  Observatory, died last week at the  age of 73 years.  Sir Robert was born in Dublin. He  was professor of astronomy in the  University of Dublin and astronomer  royal of Ireland from 1874 to 1892.  Ho was knighted on Jan. 25, 188fi.  The ghostly glimmering of poplar  chips and stumps, frequently observed  in Canadian forests at night, is due  to a fungus known as the "shoestring' fungus, which is commonly  found on large-sized poplars throughout Canada. It causes a yellowish-  white rot which detracts much from  the value of this i wood. The presence  of this fungus is externally indicated  by the mushroom-liko fruiting bodies  cluster around the base of, the trees.  Infected trees should, when possible  be cut down and used for fire wood.  FIVE FIELD GOALS BY   ONE MAN- BRICKLEY.  Can you see that Bmile on the face of Brickie- the Great?

Sill my hoy, while  I a tale unfoldn story of plot and  counter-plot, of intrigue and mystery,  of sleuthing, the liko of which haH  never boon kjiown in our oity.  For want of a better title wo will  call our story "The Mystery of the  PHI, or The Thrilling Capture of Hop  Heads."  On a dark and starless night      two  stalwart   men crept stealthily through  the streets of Kelowna on their way to  China-1 own;    they    were  Slid,   Tartar,  Chief of Detectives,     and  his     trash j  Lieutenant,   Bust-up   Homes,  the  man,  who never    sleeps.    For weeks     they l  had been drawing the net closer about  their    prey,  and     tonight   was   to     be  tho   climax,   tho consummation of all  thoir weary watch.    Por  tonight they  were to descend on  the Celestial law  breakers like a  hawk, upon  an  unsuspecting sparrow  joint, by name, Wong C'huien. (I want  to say right now that 1 don't guarantee the Spelling of any of theae names,  neither will 1 undertake to pronounce  them. A man would. need to have  his tongue split before he could do so),  The first witness called was Slick  Tartar, Chief of Detectives. He told  the story* of the raid as sot forth in  the firat part of this record, and laid  the evidence, seized in the joint before his honor, the judge. It looked  like the. proceeds of a raid on a aecond  hand china shop instead of an opium  joint. The Prosoouting Attorney proceeded to question Tartar as follows:  Attorney .���What ia this thing (holding up un article that looked like n  section of a bamboo fishing pole?)  Tartar.���That is the pipo usod in  -.(unking  tlie  hop.  Attorney.���How do you  know    what  it  is?    Have you over tried it?  111111  After rummaging about in the pile of  junk, the prosecuting attorney brought  lo light a pair of scissors.  Attorney.��� '"'What are these things  doing here, what did they use them  for?"  Tartar.���"! really don't know what  they wero used for, unless it was to  dip lhe piu-featheis oil' tho pills before  thoy smoked  them."  After a few moro questions which  mo immaterial and irrelevant to our  story Slick Turtar was dismissed and  Bust up Homos, tho man who never  sleeps, was called to/the stand. His  testimony waa practically the same as  that of Slick Tartar's and nothing  occurred in it of any importance, until a loud scratching was heard which  seemed to come from somewhere near  the rear of the court room. Upon ir,'  vestigntion it proved to bo thc large  Siberian?? blood-hound belonging to  llustup Homos. He evidently thought  his master was in danger, and was  trying to break tho door down and  come to his rescue.  At   the    conclusion of  Homes' testimony   the judge  plastered  a   fine     of  850 and costs on the old man.  The son     of  Wong Chieun  was  then  Pausing in the deep shadows cast by | ^ ,ln   ,},,,   fe*>     T,hc  co,,nH0.1      f0'  a fifteen story office, building, thoy  rapidly disguised themselves. Tartar  as a banker, Homes as a Dago organ-  grinder. Keeping on their way <*���*  noiselessly as a linx they soon arrived at the Mr of the evil-doers.  Dropping behind a pile of lumber thoy  wailed patiently until tlie Chinaman  who was acting aa a look-out, should  relax his vigilance sufficiently (or them  to enter the house. Al laat they  thought their patience was to lie rewarded- the guard entered thu houae.  Swift as a flash thoy leaped for the  stairs, but curses! just ns they wore  about to ascend a noise warned them  that tho*guard was returning, Crouching beneath tho steps they waited  once moro. In a short time the iruard  entorod the house again. Tho supreme  moment had arrived. They sprang up  thc stairs, opened the door ol the  house and cautiously entered. All was  darkness within save where a 'bin  shaft of light came from beneath a  door. Pausing near this door, the  sleuths waited until tho guard should  return to his post. Soon he came.  Springing past him, our heroes entered the room, catching the villains  red-handed, Tartar swept the room  with his eagto-eye. He saw in One  collier of tho room, on an old ted,  a Chink puffing a pipe. Sitting on the  be.I at his side was another cooking opium pills for him. In he centre of the room al a table sat uu old  Chinaman counting a lurgO bunch of  coins. At thc trial Tartan said he  thought there must have beon at least.  ���ST.tT) in the pile; but as thia statement  ���was challenged by the counsel ior the  defence, <>n tho grounds that them  wasn't that much ready monoy in Ki'-  lowua, Tartar said he might have  been mistaken. At tho old man's side  stood a young man, his son, whilo  behind tlie rudely opened door crouched three Chiuks shivering liko a bunch  of wet dogs, like a struak of lightning, Tartar apraiig at tho two men  on the bod, They showed fight, but  tho mighty Tartar getting tho toehold on ono and tho scissor on the  other soon had their shoulders to thu  mat. In tho meantime llustup Homes,  had fastened his talons ou the old man  ami his son. Tho three Chinks afflicted with tbo palsy slipped out during the height of the festivities. Hound  and tied with many fotters tho prlnon-  ors wore thrust in the lowest dungeon  of tho oity Bastile.  Tho scone of our story is now shifted to the court room of Kolowna'a  palatial city-hall.

Those eight ships which mount in  the aggregate eighty 13.5 inch guns  and one hundred and twenty-eight  (pur-inch guns, cost the British na'  tion something over $70,000,000. but  after all thoy form only a port of tho  British fleet.

The largely discussed "Woman's Suffrage" was the  topic, and the different 1 debaters showed that they had devoted a good deal  of study to the question. The advocates in favor, of course, were tho  ladies, who quoted statement! but  did not marshall the facts to prove  them. Their opponents were right on  hand with facts,and results of experiments which disproved most of the  statements in the ladies arguments.  and if the debaters who upheld tho  negative side, had been able to oon  quer their natural rotiring disposition*"  and had spoken out with tho assurance of their opponents, they     would  have scored an overwhelming victory,  as it was, it was a drawn game.

It has been found that the gen-  erous applioation of hot creosote to  well-seasoned posts, stripped of bark,  even when only painted on with a  brush, will add at least ten years to  the life of, the least durable wood.  Manv common Canadian woodB which  hitherto decayed too rapidly to bo so  used are thus made available for fence  posts. The saving in first cost and  transportation more than bnlances the  cost of treatment, while the cost of  placing the post will be much less  when considered as an annual charge.   O   The persistent and bitter attacks on  Mr. Winston Cluircltill by the Liberal  economists, who are alarmed at the  prospects of increased naval estimates  produces a suggestion that a new national political party be formed, headed by Mr.  Churchill.  20 to 25%  OFF SPOT CASH PRICES  on Men's Suits  and Overcoats  Thi. is an exceptional opportunity  to get your new Fall Clothing  at  a  Great Saving.

That js one reason why woman are more successful in poultry raising than mon. It needs a great donl  if patience to make it a auoceaa.  Poultry raising offers to women an  excellent/ means of making money. The  work is not too taxing for their  strength.  It is poor economy to feed spoiled  food to the poultry���it is poisonous.  Tlie most simple nnd efficient method  for tin1 improvement of the ogg supply  of tho country is the production of  Infortilo eggs.  The average hen outlives, her usefulness in two yeiu's. You have need  to io a little planning und work to  gel all that should come to you in  that short timo.  Winter eggs do not come by chance,  It takes a good deal of studying and  work to get them, but it pays.  Common-sense management means  success and liberal cash returns. Hens  are mortgage lifters these days.  Poultry are not fed and housed for  their beauty, but for their earning  capacity.  There is something about it that  cannot be learned from books or papers, a knowledge that words cannot  impart. It can only be acquired  through experience, observation, careful thought  and study.  Retail Department, Pendozi Street.        Wholesale warehouse, Lawrence Avenue  SPROUTING OATS FOR W1NTBB  FEEDING  Many of our readers, no doubt, sayi  the "\'oi' West Farmer", have tried  lhe feeding of sprouted oats to lSei  during the winter; a great many more  have not. Sprouted oats supply during the winter about the beat ituita-  tion of BUmmer pasturage that il it  possible to obtain.  As to thc method of preparing these,  one poultry expert, Mr. Bourlay, snys:  "The method of .sprouting oats is as  follows:���Thc quantity of oats required  is snaked over night in a bucket of  water and then placed in boxes of tins  which should have holes bored cr  punched through tho bottom to allow  drainage. No soil of any description is  used, but a layer of tho grain is spread  in each box or tin to the derth of  about one inch. These receptacles containing tho oats are thnn placed in a  dark place and the grain is well wat  ered once doily with an ordinary voter can fitted with a rose spray. As a  dork place in which to sprout oats, We  use largo tanks whioh are covered  with old sacks in order to keep them  dark, but packing cases would serve  the purpose equally well.  Tt is necessary lo place the tius on  bricks or pieoas of wood so that they  are raised from the floor of tin1 spiout  ing chamber; otherwise they nro bkely  to l>e partially submerged in wutur  which i* liable to accumulate, from tho  dally watering. After the grain has  bom in the dark chamber for four or  five days an examination will show  that il has begun to throw out fino  white roots, nnd Miis is quickly followed by young, shoots or sprouts  which grow rapidly until in ten or  twolvo days time you havo the tin  of box full of lovely green sprouted  oats which the Cowls will eat greedily.  Tf left too long the Sprouts lose their  fresh green color and gradually turn  yellow. Whilo tho oats have been  spi ting, tho roots hnve also been  gro., jg rapidly, and by the time tho  green food is ready it will be,,, found  that the grain has bm.n hound together into a solid mass by those so that  it is necessary to cut tho moss Into  sections with a spade or sharp knife.  The oats should not. be watered for  twenty-four hours before feeding iu  order that the roots and grain may  dry out to a certain extent. When  ready for use turn the whole mass  nut of tho receptacle in which it has  been grown, and cut up with a spage  nr knife into blocks, and give to the  birds who will eat both the roots and  the green growth. It in occasionally  found, on turning out a tin ot sprouted oats, that a certain amount of fermentation has set in at tho bottom  of tho roots. In euoh rases it is neo  wwarv to out off (he affected parts, for  if fed to tho poultry, it is liable to  cause disease."  ��� In dairy matters \��w Zealand la one  of thc most wide awake countries in  the world. To show the way in which  cow testing has appealed to thorn it  may bo stated thnt although tho first  cow testing association in the country  was formed only four years ago, lust  year between 20.000 ftnd ��nj,00O oows  wore tested in Now Zealand per medium of the various cow-testing associations.

BLACK   AND   SILVER  FOX FARMING BECOMING WONDERFUL INDUSTRY  Mure than    ono   thousand   five huu-  ired nilver foxes ure in captivity     at  the prcsetit time throughout thu Unit  , od Stmes and Canada. Thousands   ol  I dollars  aro expended  annually  In    the  scientific breeding of thes..) valuable lit-  I tie animals, and thc industry so far at  I least has proven u BU008IS.  Fow poo-  I pie realize, however,    that fur     iron.  being modern in its origin, thu raising  of animals for their fur is, in point of  facta  centuries  old.   ITowover,   tho art  of breeding silver black' foxes huccobh-  fully i> a product of the latter   part  of the nineteenth century,  and     even  today  lhe. industry '���* still in  the process of perfection.  Canada is truthfully said to have  the edge on ���thin country whon it comes  to silver black fox raising. It was a  Canadian, Charles Dulton of Prince  Edward Island, who first successfully  bred these almost priceless foxos, and  Canada is still far ahead of any othor  uintry in this unique ontorprise.  out twenty-five years ago, Dulton,  . wus a farmer, hnpm nod by the  ���I chance upon u litter of black  and conceived the idea that  i U t he enormous price these furs  wore bringing in Kuropettn markets,  there ought to be a fortune in it for  the one who could raise them practically. For a number of years he  conducted a black fox ranch in secret,  and the animals were bred only for  their fur, and since the choice fine  dark skins brought anywhere from five  hundred to three thousand dollars  each, he realized considerable on his  undertaking, ns he secured only the  finest skins by careful' feeding and  watching. A few years ago, it occurred to Dalton that thero was more  money in raising these animals for  yale as breeders, as others wero beginning to try their hand in the!business, and so for the last six yeara ho  has sold nothing but Jive black foxes.  Tho top notch.price now on record  for u pair of pure silver black foxes is  540,000, and since tho price of all other furs has increased many times their  value in the last, few years, it is now  thought lhat in a short time, silver  foxes will bo worth their weight in  gold. The little island where Dalton  begun his operation! is now studded  with black fox ranches, aud wnilo thu  land there is well adapted for foi  breeding, they can be raised in other  districts as well. The United States  department of agriculture has shown  thnt. almost all the Pacific States an  Well as the entire eastern and northern  pari of this country is suitable tor  fox farming.  The gradual extermination ..f wild  animals throughout the continent lm*  brought on an alarming scarcity in  raw furs within the last few years and  Mr. A. B. Shubort. of Chicago, -President of A. B. Shubort, Inc., tho largest house in the world dealing exclusively in American raw furs, has  shown thnt if attention is not given  lo tho domestic culture of certain  animals, the country will soon lose  one of its greatest industries. Among  other things he has encouraged and  fostered tho silver fo.\ farming and  thousands of inquiries are being ie-  ceived from enthusiasts all over North  America. Last year Shubyrt's collection of one hundred and twenty-three  black and silver foxes brought thc  highest prices ever known in the European marketB. The nobility of Ku-  rope vied with each other in bidding  at tho sales to obtain these beautiful  furs.  Although there are thousands of  dollars in it for the successful iaue.  of black and silver foxes, a very mall  numbor of those' who attempt it i>jc-  Oeed to a practical extent. The mason  for this lies in tho fact that whoever  engages in fox farming must bo fitted  for the business with a very even temperament and an abundance of patience. Tho habits of the animals must  be aiudies carefully. Thoy must be pe-  sonted with an environment as close  to nature,��s possible, and they must  be left severely alone at brooding tiire.  They are usually fed twice a day, and  receive a quarter of a pound of -neat  each day, but wild food, such us pigeons, chickens, mice and rabitB, ia Ubo  fed to keep up their wild instincts,  und make thorn fool more at home in  thoir surroundings. They are kept in  wire enclosure! and given plenty of  opportunity to burrow, a concrete  wall extending into the ground for  Borne distance to prevent their oscape.  If the mother is disturbed in any way  at breeding time, she will ofentimes  kill the entire litter of young ones for  Fear of their safety, and many times  the mere curiosity to know how many  young wore in u new litter, has caused the mother to kill them all. Sho  does this not for spite but for tho lava  of her babies. Black foxes mate in  February nnd March, and the litters  oome in April and May, or to bo  exact, fifty-four days later. Overfeeding has also spelled defeat for many a'  fox-raiser, and it is even better to  underfeed than to overfeed these an.'  mnls. Overfeeding is dangerous- as it  caused intestinal, trouble, and fnt animals moreover, will not brood.  MANITOBA    INDIANS PASS RESOLUTION TO tlUARD AGAINST  FIBE  Probably nowhere etae in Canada is  there u stronger co-operative spirit  in forest fire protection that has been  developed by the Chief Fire Kungor  ul the Dominion Government umong  the rangers, Indians, trappers and the  packers of the Northern Manitoba Firo  Distriot. Tho work among the Indians  has been especially beneficial, for in  the past thoy were notoriously oare-  less, especially in leaving camp fires  burning. But, largely owing to the energy and initiative of tho Chief Ranger, tho attitude of the Indians Has  been changed from one of indifTorenco  to ono of keen interest, so muoh bo,  thut that official writes: "Tho conservation of the forests has become as  red hot a topic ont here as real estate  in the west."  Recently, when treaty-money woh being pnid to the Indians ut Cross Lake  a special council meeting of seventy-  five to eighty Indians was called, nt  which an animated discussion of forest fire protection took place. Tho  meet ing was in progress, the Indian  Agent and party oame, but to tbe  surprise of many the mooting held interest till, by a standing vote, all afr-  Chief Ranger writes: "While tho  Bdrted their wiMingncss to help in the  [protection of tho forests from fire.  The chief and councillors wished mo to  convey to the director of forestry at  Ottawa this, their resolution."  Whenever possible such councils are  attended by the Chief Hanger, and all  Indians promising to co*opornto with  the Dominion rangers are presented  with n metal badge of office. The most,  intelligent of the Indians are engaged  ns regular fins-rang'.rs by the Dominion Government and do very conscientious work. Although the patrol is difficult, being done wholly by canoe  and the weather is often inclement, the  eighteen firo rangers in this district  average about eighteen miles a da..  nehiding Sundays, throughout the  summer.  During the whole senson, no serious  damage was done by fire, although  many inciuient forest fires were extinguished, a fact that speaks well for  the efficiency of the patrol and the  value of the co-operative spirit inculcated in the Indians.  UTILIZING WASTE SPACE  Most Londoners will bo stnrtled . to  learn thai there are no fewer than 14,-  (.00 acres of vacant land in the metropolitan i area awaiting the advent of  the speculative builder. Most of these  14,000 acres aro at present completely  WftBte, says the London Graphic. No  builder will put houses upon them until lie sees a chance of letting or selling tho houses at a profit; and the  owner of the land is generally reluctant to let it for cultivation lest that  should interfere with his chance of (jetting, ft building tenant. To meet the  difficulty the Vacant Land Cultivation  Society has come into existence. The  society acts as an intermediary between tho owner and the cultivator. It.  takes the laud off the hands of the  hind owner and lets it in plots to the  temporary tenants who want gardens  or allotments to cultivate. A double  purpose is Served; these vacant spaces,  which have . ffierto been devoted to  brickbats and dead cuts, couse to bt��  an eyesore to tho neighborhood, while  at the salne time n numbor or men  are furnished with nn opportunity- for  healthy and .profitable occupation of  their spare time. If it were possible  thus to deal with all thia waste spaoo  something liko 100,000 families could  be endowed with tho luxury of a garden, and the amount of food raised  would be an appreciable factor in ths  food supply of London.  riRKMAN'S  HKLMKT WITH  KLKC-  TBICJ LIGHT  The fire brigade of Southampton,  Knglnnd is to be supplied with hel-  mets carrying an electric light. The  idea ��as originated by a young shoo-  maker, who is an auxiliary member  of thc brigade. The battery for supplying the current is fixes in the cone of  the helmet, and tho light can be switched on and off at will.  Each year the supply of wild foxes  becomes moro scarce, while the ranoh���  bred fox is on the increase. Tho Indians of Yukon Territory captured 56  live foxes last year, only two of whioh  were Block. However, tho pelts of the  ranch brod foxes are in many woys  superior to the wild skins, as the animal can bs closely wotched, and scientifically fed. At the. same timo, tho  domestic culture of black and silver  foxes is a tediouB under standing, "and  while'the successful fox raiser is very  handsomely rewarded, mum have cast  thoir lot, but few have had the skill'  and patience to succeed.

Visitors to the  store are constantly noticing little  improvements and additions making  for greater convenience and bettor service. A considerable step hat} been  taken, however, thin week, by the  building of new aud convenient offices,  the doubling of tho wurehouso space  by the taking in of n largo portion of  tho new brick block across the lano  at the roar, and the provision of improved storage shelves, bins and tables.  A broad stairway nt the far ond of  the store gives access to the now offices which aro so constructed as to  give Manager McKenzie, while seated  at his desk an uninterupted view of  tho store and warn houses. The now  Arrangement too, gives the office stall  generally roomy. WetMlghted. und convenient quarters, awuy from the noise  and bustle of tho store.  Underneath tho office is a tobacco  room, where is stored the large stock  of cigars, cigarettes, anil tobacco of  all kinds which the firm carries. A  portion of the warehouse has also  been transformed into a store room  for goods opened out from the shipping casus, and ono is struck at once  with the clean and sanitary' contrivances whioh ensure tho utmost protection to perishable goods.  The huge business which the MeKen  zie Co., is doing is realized in somo  dogroo as ono views tho mountainous  piles of bags of sugar and 'flour, cases  and packages of all kinds which fill  tho warehouses, almost from floor to  ceiling. Tho stock of paper bags ,and  wrapping paper for uso in the store  alone fills a considerable area. Complete lavatories and cloak rooms for  the use of the stall ure also being  built, Mr, Geo. Ritchie having the  contract, for the whole of the alterations.  Tho front store is also undergoing  rearrangement. The additional space  given'by the removal of tho old office  Ims made possible large extensions of  .shelving and showcases, and those aro  being arranged so ns to give better  display of goods and greater convenience to the public. "Quality and service," which Mr. McKenzie. has adopted as the firm's slogan, is he says, to  be no mere advertising phase, but a  real aim which thoy menn to attain  even if, as the energetic manager says,  "thoy Jose a leg doing it,*'  Tho business, it might be mentioned  now occupies about 4,500 feet of floor  space and  employs 13 people all     of  whom are kept busy as bees.  ��� O   Amusements  "BUNTY PUU.S THE STBINGS"  W. R. TRENCH  DRUGS AND STATIONERY  What will probably be the most distinctly interesting bit of theatrical  news is that Manager Duncan has scoured a booking contract for "Bunty  Pull." the Strings" and soon the publio of this oity will have an ppportun-  ity of witnessing what is unquestionably tho biggest hit and the greatest  novelty *Sn the way of a theatrical success that has been produced for several years past. The secret of the play's  groatness lies in the fact that It is so  different from all plays that have gone  before. It is all about a simple  church folk in the highlands of Western Scotland, and bares to the bone  Scotch wit and Scotch canninoss.  One critic���und by the way he is a  Presbyterian minister���writes about tlie  current attraction as follows:  "Bunty Pulls the Strings," Is a play  that ia refreshingly different. In theso  days when playwrights seek to arouse  tho interest of the public with anything, no matter what���savory or  unsavory���a clean play likp this with  uu absolutely simple domestia plot  comes like the gentle rain after a Band  storm."  In tho character of "Bunty Blggar"  (Jraham Moffat has produced a typo  that easily takes rank among the most  popular characters ovor given to the  stage.  Another interest attaches itself to  the booking of this play when it is  known that Dawsey McNaughton Is to  appear with the oompany presenting  "Bunty Pulls tho Strings." here. Miss  McNaughton was selected for the principal part hy rjrahai.i Moffat, the  author, and sent to America, whore  sho appealed in both New York nnd  Chicago engagements. Critics overy-  whore write most glowing accounts of  Miss McNaughton's artislic work and  praise tho chnrming personality both  on and off the stage, which this "bonny lassie" from Glasgow brings to America. Them is no doubt that Miss  McNaughton's bid for popular favor in  the west will, meet with the same gon-  nfen attestation of approval, that was  bestowed upon her in the eastern  States and Canada.  "Bunty Pulls the Bt rings" will bo  looked forward to with pleasurable anticipation, not only by tho regular  theatre-poors, but also by those, who  do not.often attend the theatre and  then only when it is something of rehl  worth presented.
