At a  masting ol th* Association held on  Thursday waning last a aoBimitt**,  consisting of Messrs. A, Notley, Middleton, 8. J. Weeks, sod E. L.

In this and in other mat-  tat* tht association Is confident of tb*  eueport and encouragement of all in-  toresbas! in th* development of th*  poultry industry in the district- I* th*  position which it undoubtedly should  occupy. Climate and conditions an  admirably Adapted.for poultry keeping  and it is a metier of surprise to many  visitors that mors is not being done  by farmers and fruit-growers to take  advantage of such a profitable ��id��  Una.  It wa* atated at the masting that  on* storekeeper in town had ban compelled to refuH order* for ovar 40  donas egg* on th* praviou* Saturday  alons. Th* local market is not nearly supplied, and It ia moreover th*  aim ol th* association to eventually  organise some profitable mean* of co-  opsratlove shipments to outside points.  At the matting on Thursday Mr. G.  Thornton, ol CMlliwack, addressed the  member., on tha po..ibilities of tht  poultry industry in th* distriot, and  de.cribed th* progrw* whioh had ban  mad* is and around Chilliwack, H*  had noticed th* numbers ol oaaes of  'egg* which war* being shipped in on  th* boat, and expressed the view that  with the advantagee possessed by the  local farmer the shipments should be  the other way.

A discussion followed on feed and feeding, one of the moet important matters in successful egg production.  The next masting is to be held on  Wednesday, August 37th.  -f-  After a oloteoonteet between Ram-  loop* and Penticton for the next plat*  ef meeting ol tha Western Canada Irrigation AeKwiation, Penticton waa  chosen. Mayor X. Foley Bennett of  Peatietm waa present in  REGATTA ID WATER CAR  jloWtWs Great Two-day Programme of Water Sports is Successfully  Carried Out on Wednesday and Thursday  Kelowna's iaTorkhle eitaation a* the  mitral point on lha shores of th*  Okanagan Laka haa something to do  no doubt with th* sucoetn of tht annual regatta which is without question  the premier event of it* kind in" tho  interior of the province, but credit  must also be given to the energy and  careful preparation which is expended  upon it by the directors of the Kelowna Aquatic Association in whose  hand* hav* been th* arrangements for  th* past few.years. To their effort*  are due the provision of the handsome Aquatic Pavilion and grandstand and all tha facilities for water  sports which ar* being added to  from time to time, and without which  a regatta os anything like it* present  ���cal* would bs impossible.  In (Spite pi th* laat that ith* weather, at least on the second day, haa  been, not entirely favorable, this seventh annual regatta must be voted  a complete success. Th* rain which  foil thi* morning and portion* of this  afternoon, while making things a little unpleasant at times for the spectators, was not bad enough to seriously interfere with tht programme,  asd the whole of the forty odd events  were carried out with scarcely >i hitch  or delay. The vinous -officials worked well together end on the whole  must feel highly gratified with the  way things havs gone.  Over $1500 was given in prizes and  trophies and practically all of thi*  waa donated by merchant: nd well  wishers.  In addition to scores bf automobiles  Irom outside paints a biV crowd came  up today from i points souvi on tha S.  S.Aberdeen, which had beeV chartered  for the occasion. t  At intervals during ths two days  acrobatic performances were gives by  De Olney who had been specially engaged by Manager Duncan, of tha Opera House. Some clever trapeze and  balancing tricks were shown. In the  evening, moving pictures were shown  in the grand stand.  Ths Kelowna City Band attended  both days and played splendid ���elections ef music at intervals.  Accommodation is hotels was strained, to the utmost, and borne, more far-  tighted of the visitors had brought  tents in which they camped. Refreshments wer* provided in the Aquatic  kiosk and at eeveral booths erected in  the park,  A new feature was the confetti ear-  nival which brought the festival to a  elo*��, asd tha young people wen hot  Blow to avail.themselves of the chance  lor fun and frolic. Costumes were  plentiful and some of th ��i wrro very  good. Space however forbids any detailed mention of them. Unfortunately the supply of confetti was cut short  early in th* evening, although a big  wagon load had been provided.  The Silver Championship shield, for  the competitor securing the largest  number of prizes in the regatta was  1 by A. Edwards. This is the  fourth year in succession Mr. Edwards  ha* carried of) the shield, a fact which  testifies to his. wonderful clevjrneiu at  all forms of water sports.  The various events are given in detail below.  WEDNESDAY MORNING  Tha program opened at 10 o'clock  Wedneaday morning with a sailing race  lor th* "Ladies' Cup." Sailing, however, especially at this time ol the  year is usually an uncertain matter  and it was therefore so surprise when  this race had to be held off until a  favorable breeze turned up. There  * four entries, via., W. R. King, of  Penticton; R. Agur, Summerland; J.  H. Birks; and ths Okanagan Launch  and Motor Co, ol Penticton, builders  of aome of ths handsome new dinghies  whioh were to take part in the race.  There were twelve entries for the  ���ingle soulls, and throe heat* were pulled off Wednesday, leaving the final  for the second day. In the first heat,  Slater finished first, Morgan second  and Hill third. The first two, however wer. outside the flag which marked the finish of the course, and Hill  claimed ths hsat on that account.  Slater, however, contended that he  had been crowded oil tht course and  could jiot have got between the tag*  without fouling another man. The  dispute was left with the judges asd  their deoisios handed out later    waa  Visitors &.me From North and South  ���   to Join Crowds in the Grand  Stand and Pavilion  Event is Best Yet���Kelowna Crews Make Clean Sweep of  War Canoe Races ������ Parade of Decorated Automobiles  Fancy Dre9s Carnival in Evening  to allow all three named >to take part  is the finals. Heat 2,-ended with N.  Hookham first; and H. Birkott second.  Heat 3, Baldwin first; H. Heyland  second.  Five youngsters turned out for the  thirty yards boys' swimming race for  boys under 12 years and under, and  some of these will certainly have to  be reckoned with in tho senior events  of future regattas. R. Keller got in  first with P. DuMoulin, and T. Crowley, second and third.  There were two heats rowed off is  the double sculls, the final being left  lor Thursday. Heat 1, first Hill and  Morgan; second, Slater and Heyland;  Heat 2, first J. R. J. Stirling and  A. .Pfyffer; second Robertson and Bull.  There was a numerous entry for the  fifty yarde ladies swimming, the art  having evidently lately grown muoh  in favor with the fair sex..Miss Buchanan won easily, her strong and regular trudge stroke enabling her to make  much better time than the rest, who  were all more or less bunched together for second place. Miss McDougal  was given second and Miss M. Lochia  third.,  A special ladies' swimming evest in  the form of a thirty yards handicap  race was, held. Misa Dykes finished a  long way ahead, having apparently  been given too much start over the  rest. Miss McDougfal war second, and  Miss Datie Leckie, third  Ths open Gasoline Launch Cup race  drew only three entries this year, Mr.  R. V. Agur, pf Summerland with ^'Lil'  H. Leckis Ewing with "The Otter";  and R. Lambly's "Rip H", which was  driven by the builder and former own-  A. Jones. "Lil" got around tho  course (about 34 miles) in 10 minutes  22 seconds; Mr. Leckie Ewing's .���t  being second and "Rip" th'rd.  This concluded the momiug cents,  and the people filed iaway 'or luncheon.  WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON  Th* crowd is the grandstand and  Aquatic Pavilion was, of course considerably larger in the afternoon, The  sun came out and warmed up the atmosphere which had bees a trifle cool  is the morning. The lake was vary  smooth asd for the greater part of  the afternoon conditions were ideal,  and the. events succeeded each other  without delay or hitch of any kind.  The 50 yards7 Boys' swimming race  for .boy* under 16 was keenly contested. >J. Weddell.won first place with  the remarkably good timo of 36$ seconds; H. Keeting, o:f Peachland, second and Cyril Weddell, third.  A close race was tho 50 yards men's  breastatroke, resulting. F. J. Foote,  first; A. Edwards, second; and J. F.  Burne third.  Three entries for the Indies single  soulls,'Miss Shnyler and Miss Hogarth  taking first and second place respectively. Mrs. Edwards really finished  second, but wae outside tho 'flag.  60 yards handicap swimming for the  K.A.A. Challenge Cup nnd othor prizes drew eight entries.

The long distance swimming championship of the Okanagan Lake has  always been a popular item ol the  regatta. The distance is approximately ' one mile from the opposite side  of the lako to the aquatic building.  The party left in the "Clovelly" towing a st ring of rowboats which, were  to accompany the swimmers. There  were five starters, M. Roxby, a local  mar. winning the coveted honor and  incidentally the B.H.M. Challenge Cop  and gold watch. His time was 30  minutes, 30 seconds. Second place was  taken by R. G. Tait of Summerland, a  former holder of the oup, asd third  by A. Leggett.  The first of the rowing matches in  which ths sew four-oared racing shells  were called into requisition wa* a 1-  mils raoe between junior teams' of the  newly formed Kelowna Rowing Club,  (two teams) asd the B.N.A.T. Co.  The Rowing olub consisting of H.  Heyland (stroke), D. Bames, W. H.  Rennie, and H. H. Goode won out,  their time for the mile being 7 minutes  and 22 seconds.  A long list of contestants appeared  for the open standing dive, particularly for the 8-foot and 12-foot. Some  excellent work wat shown and the .udg-  es had a difficult task. before them.  Foote was awarded first prize, there  being little to choose, however between  him and, A. Edwards, second. G. A.  Batchelor took third prize. There were  several contestants also for the special prize given for the 20 foot dive  and in this also Foote took first lion-  Printers' Guild  Convention at Penticton  Representatives of the various newspapers of the Valley gathered at Penticton last weekend, the occasion being th* annual convention of the  Okanagan Printers' Guild.

Agur's sloop "Onaway" and  three dinghies got a good start but  though "Onaway" completed the  course of 7 miles in S'S.minut.a under  tho two hours limit, winning thereby  the open handicap, the wind fell' before the dinghies could' complete the  second time round, and thus the l.ad-  (Continued on Page Ten)  A five passenger motor car, about  5 o'clock on the 12th inst., rounding  a bend on the Vernon-Kelowna highway near the 9-mile post ran off the  road, and,turned over down a 20-foot  embankment, the,tar finding a resting  plaoe in the waters of Kalamalka- Lake  The owner of tho car, Mr. Finch,  was driving, and the other occupants  of the car were Mr. Martin, Colonel  Bott and wife.  The party were on their way from  Vernon to select a suitable place along  the lake for a camp for the Vernon  contingent of the Roy Scouts when  the accident occurred.  The road at thu point where the  accident occurred' is narrow, but not  dangerous, and it is something of a  mystery how the car came to leave  the road.  The driver and passengers owe their  lives to the fact that thc 20-foot bank  was almost perpendicular for the car  when first turning over dropped the  occupants out, all falling directly down  the bank into some brush at the foot.  The momentum of the car carried it  right out over them, thus saving the  lady and gentleman from what would  most likely have been death or serious  injury for one and   all.  After the car had turned over completely once, it took another three-  quarterB of a turn which l.nded it in  the lake in two feet of water, lying  on its right side with the top of the  car facing the embankment.  Crawling out of the brush, the passengers discovered that they had received a bad shaking up, several cuts,  and bruises, but were otherwise uninjured. They had indeed cause to congratulate themselves. Making their way  to the road camp at this point they  got rested up while a car came down  from Vernon to Owjr relief.  The oar WtaineoLhut slight damage, one hind wheel? tho windshield,  steering Fhealv -jankers and hood being  smashed in.  A motor truck and wrecking outfit  came down from Megaw's garage the  following day, and succeeded in gottjng  the oar out of the lake and back to  Vemon.  News was received this week of the  sudden death on Monday at Victoria  of Geo. W. Mappin, a resident of Kelowna for several years and prominent  in sporting circles, particularly in polo  and .horse racing in which he waa a  keen enthusiast. Mr. Mappin had gone  dowto to the carnival at Victoria* and  was taken suddenly  ill.  The remains  ilb be brought to Kelowna for interment.  A sad event took place on tbe K. L.  0. bench on Tuesday when Mr. R. W.  Carruthers died of heart failure. U  appears that Mr. CamHhe.s had hurried across to a neighbor's telephone  to summon medical assistance for hit.  wife and on returning to hi* house  he sat down to rest. The hurry, however had beon too much for him and  he expired almost immediately. The  deceased, who was about 60 years of  age waB known as ono of tho "old-  timers" of the distriot and the news  of his death will evoke the sympathy  of many who have known him fer  suoh a length of time. It is understood the funeral, whioh is fixed  lor Friday, will bo attended by the looal, masonic lodge of which Mr. Carruthers was a member.  The Board of Trade meets Tuesday  evening next.  r'W^^^vR^jej^J'R^tmTn^yiWR^m^^vnCTs^Wi  *    WATKR USERS ATTENTION $    *  The   Board ol    Investigation $  oonsected   with ths Provindal $  Water Eights Branoh will be In *  Kelowna os Saturday the 16th H(  $  betweeu   the  hour* of 10 a.m., $  X   and 3 p.m.    They may be seen �����  informally at the Lakeview iHo- $  tel asd will be glad1 to aoswer $  nny questions relaliii" to th* I* +,'  oont Memoranda of Orders mail- $  ed to    various water users or $  their attorney*. $  Board of Investigation $  By J.

Bott asd Wife Have Narrow Escape as Car Goes Ovar Embankment  Serious Land Slide  About noon on Monday, Aug. 11th,  a roar as of distant thunder was heard  in the vicinity of Oyama, and those  who were fortunato enough to be on a  point of) vantage and cast their eyes  in tbe right direction were startled to  see a huge piece of hillside suddenly  break Ioobc on thc ranch owned by  A. Gear, on the oust side of Kala-  malka Lake, and come do.vn to the  bench below, a big cloud of dust rising  at tbe aame time.  Upon later investigation it proved  that a large piece of a steep hillside  had broken away, and assuming the  proportions of an avalanche of/ mud  and boulders, tore down through an  orchard of bearing poach trow*, breaking down and completely burying up  some 10 or 12 of them and .stripping  the limbs off   a number of others.  Part of a young orchard on tho  bench above also came away .with the  slide.  It would appear that, from irrigation on the upper benches, part of  whioh is in orchard and part jn meadow, that a considerable quantity of  water had.become stored underground,  whiob, not finding nny natural outlet  had burst out.1 through thin steep hillside, carrying away with  it so largo  quantity of soil and boulders,  Stumps and logs were borne down  with the slide and hurl.nl up against  the fruit trees either breaking them ol.  or causing a dam of mud   nnd    rock.  Mr. Goer thinks that constant irrigation in open ditches was thc oauwc  of this destructive slide, and to try  and obviato this in future in going to  flumo all irrigation water wherever it  is possible.   ���   Mrs. T. J. Wadman, of Bovelstoke  arrived on Wednesday afternoon to  attend the regatta and spend a  few days with Mr. and Mrs. F. Purdy.

Registration of  Sob-Division Plans  Changes in Practice Affecting  Municipal Control  Every different provinoe in tins wide  Dominion has Borne problem to solve,  some difficulty to overcome which,1 varies in kind or degree from that of the  others.  Ono of thc chief difficulties confront.  ing the people of llritish Columbia is  the lack of cany communication!, with  tho markets of the outside world. This  great obstacle to progress is being  gradually removed by the opening up  of tho country through tho a .on'y of  tho great railway companies. But  railroads and waterways form only thc  main arteries in tho circulatory system  of trade und commerce/; the smaller arteries and capillaries are the network  of roads which should spread like a  mesh over all the country, radiating  from the principnl centres.  The local government with' a free  appreciation of its .responsibilities to  the people of the country in this respect has appropriated immense sums  for the development of an efficient  highway system. It is the evident intention of the government to .onMruet  all main thoroughfares with a view  to permanence. This is well e.\<.mpii-  fied in the sections of road completed  and under conatruction lying oust of  this city and*fextending eastward towards Kutland. Thia road has evidently been laid down under the direction  of a competent road builder and is a  good example of a well laid highway.  The advantage to u community of  roads such us that mentioned is hurd  to overestimate. Especially is this the  cuso in a fruit district, where most of  lhe heavy cartage has to be done  during tho summer and autumn. Not  oidy is a team uble to draw a greater  load but the alibviicc < i ruts and thc  lumps permits the transportation of  delicate fruits without danger of injury. In addition to this the wear  and tear on vehicles and horses,, which  in a country of bad roads becomes a  serious item of expense to n turners, ia  correspondingly reducul.  Scenic roads-, and drives, as such,  ara luxuries which no doubt encourages tourist travel and the consequent  spending of money* but, good ordinary  highways are a nee>-,sity. What we  need in a new undeveloped country is  quick and easy access tn markets for  our prothico and thc elimination of as  many aB possible ot those conditions  that make living i 1 w d w!u ,��e from  town a hardship.  For nearly a hundred yours ...most  t ho whole Bitten I Ion ��� ������ g >Vi rnments  with respect to bin 1 transportation  hus been directed towards thc increase  and jwrfoction of railways. This is  not to any that highways are really  wane than they were a century ago,  bul that tho same measure of improvement has not taken place since railroads have occupied so great a position in publio attention.  Thingl are now boginninr to ohaaje.  Tho common road is again beginning  to occupy its proper place. It is to  tho advent of automobiles that much  of tho' rcbewed interest in the highway  muy Imi ascribed and it is a satisfaction to know that our own government is not backward in recognizing  tho importance of this change in public feeling and is meeting it with characteristic promptness.  In other towns and cities automobile clubs have been formed whioh exercise considerable influence in tho  spread of modern ideas concerning  good roads.  In Vancouver the automobile club  was largely instrumental in insuring  the success of thc Pacific Highways  convention held this week, and everywhere these clubs are foremost in the  promotion of tho reviving interest in  the broad highway. W6 understand  that an automobile club is \\n existence  in our own city but in a somewhot  somnolent condition and would suggest that an effort be made to arouse  it to a sense of Hs opportunity    and  A recent issue of the New Westminster British Columbian contained the  following front page article, which  appears to indicate radical changes in  tho pructice of the land registry oUioes  such as will uerioualy affect the control  at present exercised by muuiuipal councils ovor plans of subdivision of property within thoir boundaries*  "The Lund Registry Office is now  registering all plain, of subdivisions of  lota which are presented, provided i  sketch which goes into thu Lund Reg  istry sketch book in supplied. This is  entirely different from the original position taken up, which provided that  plans approved by the municipality  should be substituted far tho plans already on the file when a re-subdivision  is desired.  "This means, said Mr. .1. (.'. tiwynn,  lhat the municipal authorities mus  protect themselves by building regulations or otherwise. Tht? land registry  office is relieved from responsibility so  far as providing lane access and sufficient breathing space.  "Tho whole difficulty arose, Mr.  Gwynn explained, ovor the various  decisions by supreme court judges, to  which the land office has, of cou.se  to give effect. Tho first question an.a*  in a decision by Chief Justice Hunter  in December, 1912. That decision '..as  given under section 99 of the bands  Registry Aot, 1911, the rubric for  which reads:No plan binding on person depositing unless sale made according thereto. The registrar has ie-  fused to accept a transfer for registration because it did not tally with the  plan and was therefore Ineffectual. The  party depositing sought under the  machinery provided by thc section  to hnve the registrar compelled to re  gistor the transfer and make alterations on the plan under order by the  Supreme Court or any judge thereof.  The Chief .Justice declined to make an  order ns thnt would declare the registrar wrong, while his LordBhip thought  ho was right. Ry section 50 of tho  I.and Registry Amendment Act, 1913,  section 99 of the Land Registry Act,  1911, is repealed. This threw the law  back on the Plans Cancellation Act,  I'.illO, which, however, only applied to  registered townsites and not to subdivisions of subdivisions or subdivisions of lota. Further, by tho Land  Registry Amendment Act, 1913, it became necessary to descrilw land otherwise than by metes and bounds. Following thia cams three decisions by  Supremo Court .Judges, one by the lion  Sir, Justice Murphy, who refused to order the registration of a. plan in which  two lots won? divided into several and  the owner of the lot lying next to the  original lot was subjected to several  backs of plots facing across his property. Then came two decisions by  tlie ITon. Mr. Justice Morrison, tho latter of which has resulted in tho present interpretation and administration  of the law. In this decision tho learned judge laid it down that a person  could mortgage any part of alot and  the holder of the mortgage could ro-  gistcr as against that particular portion. Carrying the matter out to it*  conclusion it was agreed that if he  could mortgage any part of a dot and  foreclose and secure a title. This ib  tho viewthat hns Ixen taken at Victoria, and the registry offices are now  registering half lots that is the east  or west, aT north or south portions,  without any deposit of fresh pluns, and  thR local registrar is at present in communication with Victoria as to carrying this principle much further and  registering any subdivision desired,  leaving the municitinlitioB lo prated  themselves."  New Westminster Fair  Efforts are being made,to make this  year's provincial fair at New Westmin-  tor, B.C., a phenomenal success, and  with thia object in view Mr. D. li". Mac-  Kenzie, manager and secretary of the  Koyal Agricultural and Industrial Society of British Columbia, accompuui-  ed by Mr. ,U. .A. Welsh, president and  Mr. Nula Nelson, first vice-president,  paid a special visit to Kelowna Tues-  . day to talk matters over with the local Hoard of Trade with the object of  eouring the support of the Orchard  City.  Mr. MacKenzie in addressing ths  board remarked that the exhibition af  forded an opportunity of demonstrating in a practical way ths groat potentialities of ths provines. Last year  6U,000 people visited tha fair, 'lhsy  had had a large number of individual  exhibits from Kelowna but for some  years past they had not had what  might be termed a district exhibit.  To interest Kelowna in such an     ��-  libit was tho object of their mission.  "People coining down  tho lake     by  ho steamer"  said Mr. MacKenzio "do  lot realize for a moment the possibilities of the Kolowna district. It was  therefore all the more important that  they should be well represented nt tbe  New Westminster fair which was was  the only general exhibition west of  Winnipeg. 916,000 had been given in  prizes last year, if which $3,000 was  in cash, and * their ambition was to  expend $30,000.in prizes this year."  Mr. C. A. Wolsi. remarked that they  pprcciated whnt  Kelowna had    done.  n the past towards making their exhibition a   success, but he hoped that  his year they would give more     sup-  >ort than ever.    He would like Lo see  he tobacco industry well represented.  People at the coast and elsewhere did  not realize the great resources of 'the  Kelowna distriot.  Mr. S. T. F.lliott, tho vico-prcsi lent  of the board of trado, expressed hearty  sympathy with the objects of the exhibition. He stated that Kolowna  would most certainly send down an exhibit.    Exactly what form this vould  ake he could not say, but no doubt  it would be a district exhibit.  The matter will be fully discussed nt  the next monthly meeting of the Bonrd  f Trade on Tuesday next. In the  meantime a provisional committee has  been appointed to deal with the collection of the fruit.

Four Years of Victory  For the Fourth Successive Year  the annual endurance run of the New Jersey  Motor-Cycle Club, May 30-31, was a sweeping  YALE victory. Four YALES started and all four  finished in good shape, the only machine that had  all starters to finish.  The big team trophy was won by the Yale team,  George Riechey, P. W. Stevens and O. W. Stevens.  It was a clean-cut victory with no other machine  able even to give close competition, for no other  team had all three riders to finish the gruelling  two-day, 450-mile grind over towering hills and  primitive roads. The test was so severe that it  brought YALE superiority out prominently.  One winning might be called luck or accident, but when the same machine  wins deciaively year after year, as tha YALE has in this annual New Jersey  content, it is convincing proof of its superior road ability. The " Big Y " is the  kind of machine YOU want.     Stop at thia store and hav* us show you.

The new law will go  into operation next year, but the pensions will be paid out in reduced  amounts during the periods oi transition, so that the generation that ia  now young will be the first to receive  full pensions. Those who are now invalids or aged will1 receive, instead, pecuniary assistance that is mude payable in pension form and is due to  all who have not a certain amount  by income.  In all countries where invalid insur  once in compulsory form is oarriod on  it .has oomprised in tha main only the  wage-earners and servants, while almost all other classes oi the people  have not been taken into aooount and  have been obliged to content themselves with a voluntary pension in old  age without any preceding invalid peu-  HARVEST IN  SASKATCHEWAN  Fifty correspondents oi the Western  Associated Frees tell the story oi a  good crop outlook in central and northern SaskatohewanNThey call it a  little above the average', according to  present prospects.  Wheat harvesting will start in many  places on August 15, and will be general by August 25. It is estimated  that the time of ripening grain will be  seven to ten days earlier than in 1912,  which means a lot in value to the  crop. Oats are likely to be a big crop  and flax a smaller acreage than a year  ago. It is generally stated by the correspondents that the farmers have  gone more into hog raising than any  previous year, and also that there is  a tendency to go into dairying and  mixed farming generally.   1   While almost 4000 feet in tbe    air  monoplane, driven by W. 0.

The invalid pension introduced in England only two years  ago follows the Uerman,, with the dii-  ierenoe that it pave out different sums  to different wage classes and the old  agei pension in England oomprises the  whole population, while in Germany  the insurance is confined mainly to  wage-earners. France has had ior the  past ,twoi years a compulsory old age  pension, for laborers, olerks aad I  vasts, and voluntary insurance for tha  rest oi the people.  The new ncoepted Swedish law guar,  antees a pension to everyone, whatever  business or income he or ahe may hsve  and imposta on that account, on all,  irom 16 yuan of age to 66 a pension  tax that varies according to tbe sum  oi inoomo. They who have less than  500 kronen, or approximately (130 income pay, three kronor a year. They  who have 600 to 800 pay five kronor  year. They who have 800 to 1200  kronor inoomo eight kronor, and they  who i��ve more than 1200 kronor ia-  ooma p��.y a yearly tax of thirteen kronor.  These taxes are oompulnory.

On Tuesday afternoon the looal aggregation crossed bats with the team  representing Coquitlam and won an  exciting and well played game by the  soore of i to 0.  Throughout the contest the looal  infield killed off several hits by fast  fielding and the outfield stlpplied the  same steady support that has characterized the lasl months play. The  boys worked together in a maohine-  likio style and their splendid fielding  proved the undoing of the visiting  olub.  The game was oalled at 6 o'eloek bb'  the Coquitlam team were to arrive on  the boat from Vernon where they defeated tho leaders of the B. 0. Interior  league by a score of 5 to 1 on Monday afternoon. J  The game Was 'called at 5.15 and it  was one of the cleanest and' by far  tho fastest gamo soon on the local  grounds this season. Mr. Castner acted as umpire and kept the'.teams placing ball all the time, as the space of  one hour, and fifteen minutes will indicate. Henning was on the firing  line for the locals with Fraser working for the visitors.  The locals secured one rtm in the Opening round and added three more in  the fourth, antl this ended ihe scoring  for the afternoon.  Wednesday's Game  The game with the Coquitlam team  was called at 10.30 on Wednesday as  it waB thought it would be too late  to^play alter the lacrosBe game in the  evening.  Mr. Castner again handled the indicator to the satisfaction of both the  players and the large crowd of spectators.. The game after the opening  innings became too one-sided to be  very interesting, the local boys playing in their usual good style so far  outclassed the rival team during the  early part of the game that it was decided to call the game St the end of  the seventh inning, which was done  With the score, standing ]5--to 0 in favor of the home team.  In this contest Kuyle, the star pitck-  ", who held Kamloops to two hits,  and a I to I tie, and defeated Vernon  5 to 1 was driven from the box in the  third inning after eight runs had cross  ed the plate.  lesSe Davis it as in the box for the  locals and pitches a steady game,  and kept ihe hits so well soattered  that the visitors never became very  dangerous. Only once during the game  did Coquitlam look like scoring, and  that after two hands were down. With  man oh first Davis walked the next  two men, filling the1 bates, then he  settled down and fanned the next man  retiring the side, leaving the bases  full.   4lMttfe8'of��'Sa��4llirt,��fi.e*y  LACROSSE  I^IISfltlfll  DON'T  TRUST  to memory to preserve  the changing likeness  of ytfur gRAving boy  or girl.

Although tht world's championship  baseball games are still two months  away the fans in all sections oi the|,  country are beginning to speculate as  to the winner. II' takes a moat rabid  partisan to figure othor than Philadelphia and New York as the contenders;  and despite the rwont. gairls made by  Cleveland in tbe American league,  and Pittsburg in the National league,  the orlties are united in their oholoe  pf the Athletics SB winners of the  younger league raoe( and the Giants  to eop the prize in the older organization. - liiJt there is one thing on whioh  the oritios do not agree, and that is  the winners of the world's honors.  The infields and outfields of the  teams , are to all practical purposes  ���quel and both teams are well fortified with substitutes for all positions.  Between tht tiwo' rival managers there  Is nothlns to choose, for both are  |reen. oareful students of the game Und,  haver overlook an opportunity to gain  if wttrung advantage.  On ThulftrJay 'aftehiobh if'la'irt'weak;  [the Armstrong 'laordsse team treated  the K��bwna'team tb an 8 tb!5    defeat on the local girounds.  The game was called at about 4.15  'Snri during the first part of tne gable  both teams shoVred sjrurts ol brilliancy  ���seldom seen in the valley. Both teani.  played good cbmbinaMon 'and 'many  eUancesto store were only avortiBd Ity  the "sandwich" tactics of the defence. During the first tjuarter 'tnej  'play WaB pretty evenly divided over  theSShtire field, neither team appeal  I'tO have any advantage. The ball wa.  carried' first to one end unci {Hen  Other but Was seldom carried neiir  enough to the goal to become dangerous.  During 'the second'quarter the *pua^-|  ore warmed to the,game 'and some ox-  ij'oeilent 'cbmbihatldn work and bursts  of speed by individuals 'netted two  [goals for each side. This tumr'er wap  really 'the fastest of the game, free  from rough play arid 'the ball wa.  passed rfud received in true league)  fashion.  After the usual naif-time rest the  play immediately became fast  .furious, the ball being carried from ehi  to end in Vapid succession, each teani  taking seiVeral shots at the opposing  net, but riiost 'of the shooting ' 'was  wild and tailed to find its way into  the nets until late in the quarter when  the Armstrong combination managed  to breal up the local defence for a  short period and Scored a couple in  rapid succession. Then W. Fuller found  the grove and shot a low one past  the goal tender into the net. Armstrong continued their combination  play and secured two more before ths  bell rang 'calling the quarter to a  close.  In the last quarter each team so-  cured two more, leaving the score 8  to 5 ia favor ol the visiting team.  The 8 to 5 score dues not indicate  any great advantage by cither team,  neither does it leave the impression  that Kelowna played the better game.  However, those who witnessed the exhibition were Well pleased with the  showing, made by lhe local team with,  possibly tbe single exception ol the  goal tender, who is either lar out ,>f  his class with thc local combination,  or had an "AIT" day. Dui'n^ the  early part ol the game he stopped  several hard Shots with apparent ease,  but the four goala scored by the visitors in the third quarter were all of  the easiest kind, with possibly one exj-  oeption, Which was a fact shot from  the side  Tho looal team ate practising hard  and with more teem work will prov^  a hard team to beat.

Dear    Sid,���If    you notice that'my  writing in this letter, resembles    tne  'effort of a man afflicted with tho palsy, the 'reason is, Sunday I went fish-1  ng out to Haynes' Lake wrth'a orbwd  aud caught ao many fish, my     right  arm became strained Irom turning the  Sfeel,'Gee! we sure'had one grand'time/  also a very 'strenuous one too.

However it was worth all the1  xertion    and strong' language     used  'ih,'gotting there.    The return trip   to1  i, was the crowning feature of   the'  ting, we had good horses and a fine'  'driver, and the way we oamo     down'  that hill was no trouble to us at all.  [we went around some 'of those death'  .���/ing avenues on two wheels,   wliere  h 'slip to one side would have flung us  down a precipice ilOOO feet nigh.     I  got a sore throat from swallowing my  heart.  We had the Marvelous De ulney  for  he first performance last night,     he'  iu't    on a very neat    and 'attractive  comedy acrobatic    turn. In faot    his'  work was as good as any you  would  see in the big theatreB.   He will    be  icre the rest of the week.  If my    memory serves me,  Sid,   it  eemB to me that among hundreds of  ither bad-air real estate schemes being  lerpetrated on the confiding public, in  he vicinity of Vancouver, waa     one  ailed Coquitlam. Evidently tbe sharks  have lured   enough misguided    people  here to form some kind of  a sottle-  ncnt for we had a ball team here yes-  erday, coming from there. Our team  ose up in grandeur and wrath     and  aid them out cold.  This has been a bum letter Sid but  'ou must forgive me this time for you  know this is regatta week and I have  >een busy as a cat with seven kittens,  o if you will let   it go this     time I  will promise to do better next time.

Immediately after the sound ol the1  whistle the horns team Secured the  ball and went down the field with a  very pretty combination which was  broken up Immediately ih front of the  Kamloops net and a brilliant stop ol  Islet, low shot from the sorimmage  [that was enacted beforo tho goal saved the visitors net and returned the  ball to tho oentfo 61 the field again  from where e��6h side took turns in  securing and losing, forming and breaking up plays.

Kendall, Who sent in a  fast one which nestled snugly in the  corner of the net and scored the first  goal of tho game for Kelowna.

Green 'Crops as Manure  The ploughing in ol green manure  orops is one of the most otfeoti.e  methods of i enriching the turf ate soil.  Green crops contain elements pf, fertility derived from the air and trom  j the mineral and vegetable constituent',  [of,thy .subsoil on whjoh they grew. as.  .well as what tljjiy. have token from,  the surface soil. Therefore, when green  crops are rotumed to the earth and left  to decompose in it, at by ploughing in,  they naturally not only restore 'to the  surface soil those elements that they,  took out, but also add to it ths elements of giant food they secured 'rom  the air and subsoil. The plants best,  adapted for use as green manure aro  I those that derive their support largely  from subsoil and grow rapidly and  cover the ground well, and where  roots ponctrato deeply.  Tho growth of theao crops may, with  advantage,.be, largely increased by the  use of artificial manure. Buckwheat,  rye, rape, clover and cowpcat are chief  among the green crops used as green  manures, and of these clover and cow-  peas are the moat valuable, because  of,their habit ol doep growth and nitrogen addition. These green manures  are used most profitably in conjunction with summer fallow, and they  should be ploughed in as near as possible to the time of flowering. The  improvement whioh they effect in the  texture and fertility of the Boil is most  marked in clays. The use of green  manure orops furnishes a cheap and  efficacious method of manuring for  lands remote from the buildings of the  farm.  Curttegie Gets a attytteriout  , Bomb  The mystery of the "bomb" which  somebody tent to Andrew,Carnegie in  care of the secretary ol the Carnegie  corporation, who promptly turned it  [oyer to the pplioe. who at 'promptly  turned it over to the bureau ol combustibles has been, solved. It wat a  juicy cheese enclosed in a smell-proof  case of zino���a Scotch cheese, according to a cheese expert, called in to  conference.. after the .bureau had definitely determined that the "bomb"  contained neither nitroglycerine, dynamite or other deadly explosives.  After deliberating most of the day  as to what methods should be usod to  determine the contents of the *bomb"  without causing an explosion that  injure anybody,, the, officials ol ths  bureau ol combustibles took the "internal machine" to a vaeant lot. There  Irom a safe distance, while an immense crowd waited with their 'lingers  in their ears expecting an awful report  the officials levelled a rifle, at ths  bomb and perforated it with a bullet.  A thick, yellow substanoe oozed from  the hole and that was all that happened. Four bullets were fired into the  "bomb" and still silence reigned.  Soon, however, a pungent and self-  explanatory odor became perceptible  and even the laymerii present were able  to recognize the true nature of the  "bomb."  The cheese was returned to the Carnegie corporation, resembling more the  Swiss product than tile Scotch.  -*-  August "Rod and Gtm"  Contents, of the August issue if Rod  und Gun in Canada, the Canadian magazine of outdoor life, published by W.

These tactics soon  opened the way for another Bcore for  the locals. With the Kamloops men alii  at one end of the field the locals secured the ball and after a fast run  down the field Pettigrew passed' to W.  Fuller who scored the fourth goal for  the home boys.  The laul quarter waB somewhat  rougher than the others had been, owing possibly to the desperate attempts  made by the visitors to even up the  score. They -secured two goals, however, but the locals retaliated with  two more in quick 'succession, and the  game ended with the score 6 to 3 in  favor of the home team.  j The game was 'one of the fastest and  best games of the Beason and the faBt  and clean all round work of the local  team won them favor on every turn.

Without question tbe success of most  of the irrigation projects in the western states to the south uf ub depends  largely on the fart ibut alfalfa grows  \. ith suoh luxurious brum! wbea water is appHcd nnd if it did uot thrive  as it docs ihe agricultural possibilities  of tho projects refeirvd to would bw  seriously curlailfd.  Alfalfa was originally n subtrepisal  plant,  having been grown und highly  ��� ���ri/nl as a fi.diler pliiRt in the viua*  i.y of \tho  Mediterranean    f r wveral  i uturies before the beginning of   tho  Christian era.    The   Spaniards Intro.  diced it  lo  Mexico  and South Aintui-  aud bom there itAvas carried north  to California, thence oast into Utah.  i'l  from   (hero  it spread  to  tho  At-  '    tic coast   rapidly.     Il   Is now said  be grown in every province in Can-  :  la and in ev ��� "   ��� ' ''.'ted  iles, tlioii(|h  in some cms -s its cul-  '   re  is     limited (n    small    areas.

Although it will  "grow  ��� ltdcr such . a wide diversity of conditions in regard lo climate nnd soil  Mill il is under irrigation that this  wonderful forage plant earns its great-  i st   popularity.  In regard to what is being done with  this crop in tho Canadian northwest,  in limited areas quite generally in various parls of Alberta, Saskatchewan  and Manitoba. Professor S. A. Bedford, depiith minister of agriculture of  Manitoba, in a recent letter, wrote  me:  "The area of t.liis legume is increasing very rapidly each vear nnd it is  now possible to find fields of from  Ml to HO acres in different parts of  the province. . This government has  about 20; different plots nf one nr two  neres planted in different parts of the  province from altitudes of 1000 to  2605 feet above sea level, and po far  they hnve     abiiot     with'iut  exception  If.  PAIRPIBLD  II  proved Successful. Tho only failures are  attributed to insufficient drainage in  one or two portions uf the Rod River  valley."  fn Saskatchewan fields and plots ol  ulfnlfu muy be found in many locali  ties from Prince Albert to tho boundary, previous to liMM it was unknown in that province, 'lhe Saskatchewan government is giving the yrow-  Ing of ulfnlfu n great impetus by offering liberal prizes aggregating SuOUtl  for tho bu.it ten uoru fields, tu be jndg-  ud in 1914. Ths exploitation ef this  conies!, wilt tht atcetiary attendant  publicity, ii doing a grant dtal in ths  way of infliimicn.�� farmers to begin  tbe growing of this foragt wop.  .Alberta is the prettier. It is ����� generally grown in thi extreme southern  portion of tht prnvinse that ths ex  penmen.al sta^s has been passed but  further north it is being Unted quite  generally und it is gratifying tb know  that in the majority of casts ths farmers are meeting with success; Where  failures nrc met with it is usually due  lo lack of Inoculation or to the use  of strains of seed not sufficiently liar  dy. Although tin1 common strains, oi  so-called varieties, all seem to be bar  dy in tho Lethbridge disirict, llii.  does not appear to be the case in the  other parts of lha province. At thi  Dominion Rxporlmental farm nt La-  combe serious winter killing has been  experienced, except wilh the Grimm  nnd Turkestan varieties. Failures in  certain parls of the province lo ^el  the crop to live through tho winter  hns doubtless boon due to tho faol,  t hat the seed used hus come from  some of tho warmer parls of the Unit  ed States where hardy strains havo  not predominated. I believe that most  of the failure that hnve been met with  in tho Glolohen nnd Strnthmore districts have been due to this fact, for  T hnve, visited fields of ulfnlrfa in these  districts lhat are two and three yeara  old lhat were in ns vigorous nnd thrifty condition as one would desire. I  firmly believe that it i: only a matter  of time till Ihis kind of forage crops  will bo grown quite generally in practically nil of the 'resent settled pnrts  of tho prnirio provinces.  Where it will be always grown with  and Saskatchewan. Here it is destined!  to become the leading factor in    our  crop rotations.     H wilL not only produce more pounds of the most desirable   food    for all   kinds of growing  stock and milch    cows, but it    adds  nitrogen and humua to the soil,     enriching   it in    these essentials to     a  wonderfuld degree.    A ton of well cured alfalfa hay   has about the    samo  feeding value us a ton of bran.    The  higl   regard  that  dairymen have    for  this buy is so well known that H scar  cely  needs mentioning.      For    feeding  und fattening cattle and sheep it has  few  peers.   In a lumb  feeding  test at  tho Lethbridge Experimental farm     a  year ago wo found that  \fe obtained  ubout t-wtmty dollars  a ton for     tho  alfulfu huy fed.    In    a similar experiment curried on with Iambs this past  vrintwr    wt obtained   nearly as mush.  Ai a pasture for pigs it i�� hare!     to  equal.

Rut why     Uki  up your time in sataleging ths -na*;  virtues of thii wonderful forage plant  which are doubt leas well known to all.  Thu  Lethbridge district has the distinction of being the first looality in  tlie  prairie   provinces   to grow alfalfa  com inertia My.  'I'he first fields  to     bo  grown    successfully    were sown twelve  years ago.    From the small beginning  of a  few  acres devoted   to  this    crop  has increased by several hundred acres  every year.     This acreage is practically alii on irrigated land.     'It will grow  on dry land,  but  the tonnage is   increased    so  materially    by   'a.g'.tioii  that we look on it as essentially    nn  irrigated crop.     It is peculiarly    well  adapted  for growing under  irrigation,  for if the water is not   applied   . just  when it should be the crop is nnt damaged, the    only loss    is the loss     of  growth up  to the  time  of  irrigation.  This is tho case with few other crops,  for with  most grasses  or  with  grain  crops, etc., if they suffer from drouth  nt   the  critical   period  in   thoir    early  development  the crop for that season  is seriously nffected.    During the hottest   months  of the  year,  duly     and  August,  wdiich  are usually  the driest,  to get  the greatest    growth by being  able to supply the necessary moisture  during tho period of rapid growth.  As previously Intimated alfalfa is  going to play a very important part  in the rotation of crops raised on irrigated land in Alberta nnd Saskatchewan. Tn most countries, n leguminous crop, such as clover, is grown  the greatest profit, will, I believe, he at certain intervals, to enrich the land  the    irrigated    districts of Alberta' and    no m��ke it    more    profitable to  KELOWNA OPERA HOUSE  SATURDAY, August 23rd,  At 8.30 p.m.  THE PLAYERS  OF SUMMERLAND, IN  "In Honour Bound"  Lady Carlyon...: Mrs. Featherstonehaugh  Rose Dalrymple Mrs. Aleen Heber Percy  Sir George Carlyon Mr. Sauter  Phillip Mr. Oliver Villiers  Mr. Alex Bentley Baritone  Mr. Sauter "The Lady of Shallott"  Mr. & Mrs. A.

In tbe oaie of at-  fulfa, however, it being such a valuable, us well as profitable crop, the arrangements of the different orops will  be changed and it will itself be the  main crop grown. The great advantage gained will be that the land will  bo continuously enriched by nitrates  and humus. Nature has been generous and has .supplied the prairie soils,  and the subsoil* too,, with a bountiful supply of all the mineral constituents that plants require.C oneequently  it will be possible to keep on raising  alfalfa probably indefinitely as far as  the soil is concerned. I believe that  within a short time 60 to 70 per cent.,  of the land under irrigation in this  district will be growing alfalfa. Other  crops will utiM be grown, but by rotating them with alfalfa the fields will  be increased 50 to 100 per cent. In  support of this statement I might say  that on the Lethbridge Kiperimental  farm last year we had potato** pleat,  ���d on alfalfa sod that yielded 7171  buihsls per acre. sad spring wtott  that followed ths potato stop yielded  fit) bushels to the acre. It will be pos-  uible te double eur yield* o! sugar  beets, in feet alfalfa is going te be  tlie basis, direotly and indirectly, ou  which the development and wealth of  the irrigated sections of southern Alberta are going to be built, and, of  course, the sane is true of southwest-  cm Saskatchewan.  The weed problem, which is such a  serious menace just now in this distriot, and which is causing the farmers so much inconvenience, becomes insignificant when alfalfa appears, for  the growing of this crop on irrigated j  land is a panacea for all such troubles, as none of the ordinary weeds can  live in an alfalfa field that is being cut  twice or three times during the growing season. In regard to the yield  of alfalfa that we get here I may say  that on the experimental station, farm  we have, during the last five yeara  since the farm was established, averaged between five and six tons per  acre of field cured hay each season on  land that has been carefully irrigated.  We cut either two or tnrre times each  year. There is not much difference in  (he total yield between the two or the  three cuttings. If, however, the hay  is cut three times instead of twice a  little better quality for cows and sheep  is obtained. It is less apt to be  woody and is more palatable. The  usual practice ia to irrigate for each  cutting, that is, just after the hay  is taken off. Fall irrigation, just before  the water in turned out of the ..itch,  tins been found to be particularly advantageous, for with ii it is generally  possible to make the first crop without applying any water. .  We sometimes have difficulty in get-  ling the first cutting cured, as it is  made in the Utter part of June, whioh  is often a rainy season with as. It  is just possible thai with the .development of the distriot we may in time  us* silos to store our first cutting  when we have to mak? it during inclement weather.  This naturally leads up to the qaee-  tion of stock. With th* great increase in acreage of alfalfa that we  confidently expect, it will be necessary  to have stock to consume it. Doubtless more or less breeding stock will  be kept on the irrigated farms, and  each winter these will he supplemen^sd  by range stock. We hope that the foot  hills and mountains immediately to the  west of us will be able to graze a  large number during the summsr time  and thus inoreas* th* supply.  As successful farming undss irrigation moans intensive farming and a*  intensive farming means increased  yields, it naturally follows that we  shall be able to maintain more stock  per acre that will be the cose in other  parts of the province where they have  not the advantage of irrigation. I  firmly believe that the irrigated districts in this part of the country will  eventually be the heaviest feeding  grounds in western Canada.   4 _  Vancouver Exhibition  Praotically since the close of the last  exhibition the Vanoouver Exhibition  Association have been preparing lor  this, the fourth, to be held in tha  oity. and a trip to the ground* at  Hastings Park reveals some astonishing changes. No less than five large  buildings havs been erected, three miles  of road and paths have been laid, flow  er gardens, broad green swards and extensive clearings have been made, and  altogether the outlook and views combined with the substantial effect of the  buildings are hardly equalled at... any  exhibition grounds on the continent.  Before-the exhibition starts on August  30th, over 1150,000 will have been expended, and the judgment of the observer will attest to the ability of, Mr.  H. S. Rolston to get full value for the  money spent.   4   More Irishmen are being lost to the  Empire than those of any other nationality.

For those who are familiar with  the peculiar formation of the two  watersheds, which border both sides  of Okanagan lake, the problem of irrigating tho highest bench lands has  always been a difficult problem. Once  the divide is crossed, on either side of  the lake, however, a decided change  is evidenced in the atmospheric conditions. This is particularly true oa the  western side, when once the summit  of the watershed is crossed and the  western slope of the hills attained, a  new climate entirely is experienced.  In place of the dry, oven climate of  the Okanagan is a land ol frequent  rains, blistering hot days and chilly  nights.  Within a few miles from Penticton,  the ooolest place on tho lake during  the summer months, it seems difficult  to believe,that such reverse, conditions  oould exist in regard to climate, and  this new and little-known district,  hitherto almost unexplored' by the  land hunters, is splendidly adapted ior  the raising of atock, having water in  ! accessible places and splendid etretches  of pasturage.  Although stock raising has been  somewhat on the wane is Britiah Columbia of recent years, a revival! of the  I industry seems imminent; the owners  of ranches unsuitable tor,extensive agriculture being awakened by the skyward-shooting prices paid for all kinds  of meats, and the drawing of praotically every pound of the supply from  Calgary and other prairie markets.

At the opening oi the play Sir  George Carlyon, K.C., ia discovered  reading over aome briyfn, when he ia  interrupted by the arrival ol Phillip  Graham, who butt juat returned from  a voyage around the world. During  the course of conversation Phillip announces to Sir George that ho is engaged to be married to a charming  girl he met on the voyage home, but  that there is aome difficulty, in the  shape of an old love, Boae Dolrymple,  Sir Georgo's ward, who has just returned from the theatre with Lady  Carlyon, no sooner enters the room  than he quickly discovers that she is  the girl to whom Phillip is engaged.  Lady Carlyon then comes upon the  scene and we are not long left in doubt  as to who the old love in.  Sir George, although exceedingly fond  of Phillip, feels that he cannot give  his consent to their marriage until he  has received some proof from the old  love that Phillip is honourably free  to marry, the proof to consist of a  letter from.the lady in which ahe must  state that Phillip is free.  Although this love affair haa not  been of a serious nature, it is impossible for Phillip to explain the situation to Sir George without; disclosing  the fact that the lady concerned ia Sir  George's own wife. Mattere become exceedingly complicated but. fortunately  for all concerned they are settled in a  satisfactory, though unexpected manner.  The Summerland Flayem are fortunate enough to receive the co-operation ol Mr. and Mrs. A. 1.. Soames,  who will repeat their exoollont performance of "The Man in the Street". Mr.  and Mrs. A. L. Soames have already  created a most favorable impression on  the looal theatre goers to whom they  need no introduction, end the repetition of thia aketoh will be not the least  attractive item of tho program.  Between the two playa, Mr. Alex  Bentley, a baritone, with an excellent  voice will eing, and Mr. Sauter will  be heard in "The Wy of Shallot."  Miss Phyllis BigginB will accompany  them,  Difficulty of  Learning Chinese  The very great difficulty of learning  the Chinese language is proverbial, and  is largely due to the "tones" whioh  play bo prominent a part in the differentiation of words. French can be  spoken without a Parisian accent;  Engliah tourists occasionally do so  speak it. A correct accent ia added  grace. But, according to Or. Arthur  Jackson, who died so nobly while he  was fighting the plague at Moukdon.  ("Life of Dr. Arthur Jackson" Hodder and Stoiighton), to mispronounoo  Chinese creates not amusement, but  confusion. What you say depends on  how you aay it. You moke a mistake  inflection, and as ii result you have)  uaed a word which may be ridiculously remote from the one you intended.  "For example, ma (1) (I.e., in the  first tone) means mother; ma ( (9)  means, hemp; ma (3) means horse;  ma is 'to curse.'

Two ho  tels were destroyed and over thirty  business houses. The bucket brigades  finally chocked the flames, but not  before a total damage exceeding half  a million dollars was done.  One hundred people were absolutely  destitute and twice as many had  plaoe to buy a meal or get a place to  rest. Tb* gavernment placd the i  migration hall at the disposal of the  council, and those merchants having  ,eny goods left offered what they had  to relieve the stricken.  The heaviest individual loser was  Mike Oagnon, who lost a number of  buildings worth .200,000 and all uninsured. The Athabasca Forwarding Co  warehouse filled with goode consigned  to the Peace River was burned to the  ground. The goode were worth 850,000.  The waterworks were not completed  and only a hand pump enyino w*.s  available to fight the flames except the  bucket brigade.;  To Build Last Section of the  Kettle Valley Railway  MoArthur Bros, tt Co., ol New York  will build the last section of the Ket  tie Valley railway, a distance of 38  mile* over Coquehalla Summit to Hope  Construction is very heavy, and it is  to be completed by November next  year. > Thit will finish the short lines  of ths railway being constructed now  by both the C.P.R., and Great Northern between Vanoouvor and Kootenay.  .The Kettle Valley line is a C.P.R. undertaking, but the portion of the grade  now placed under contract with Mo-  Arthur Bros., will be used by both the  railways.

Advertise   in th*    "Reoord" is you  want quick result*,  MEETING OF CITY COUNCIL  (Continued from Pas. 1.)  erman Sutherland stated that correspondence had been received (I) from  the Penticton Sunday School authorities who wished to thank tbe council  for the use of the park on their visit  to Kelowna; (2) from the Kelowna  Grower* Exchange drawing attention  to the bad state of the railway crossing on Water street near their premise*, the jolting of loads of fruit causing damage to ths prpdnce which wc*  ���hipped away daily by the Dominion  Express Co. Ths council' were ofth  opinion that the crossing should bs  promptly put in order but Alderman  Sutherland thought it might be deferred until the mayor's return the following day.  A motion was passed that a tub  scriptlon of $10 ba forwarded to tha  oxooutivo of tbe B. 0. Municipalities  convention, which would entitle Kelowna to send two delegate* to tb*  forthcoming convention.  Alderman Sutherland then introduced two new by-law*. Nob. 137 and 138,  providing for the. raising.of $12000 six  per cent., debentures to make up the  discount the oity will have to pay on  the sewer and school accounts. He  pointed out that it would be necessary  to rush these by-lawa through because  the court of revision in connection  with the same would.be held the following Monday. The rate payers had  the matter entirely in their own hands  to accept or reject; their acceptance  would mean a gain of 9 mills to the  dollar, while if the matter were turned  down it would be necessary to secure  $17000 at once. Alderman Sutherland  emphasised the fact that the estimates  were not being exceeded in either of  th* debentures. As this was the first  time of reading it would be necessary  to have a special meeting of the oounoil the next day for tbe second reading; this was therefore agreed upon  for 10 o'clock. The motion was then  put to the meeting by Aldermen Calder and Copeland that by-laws 137  and 138 be read a firat time; carried.  There being no further business, the  council adjourned until 10 o'clock of  the following .day.  H. Wilson, sewer work .... $97.16  E. H. Emmons, sewer work . . . 6.00  E.

Mr. Bigger  stated that tbe contractor had allowed $1.00 per cubio yard for tho excavation, whioh had become unnecessary  through the raising of the first floor  of the building.  Bylaws 137 and 138 were read a  second time and | the oounoil resolved  itself into a committee of the whole  to consider same, after whioh the committee rose and reported' to the council, and by-laws 137 and 138 were read  a third time.

THE following are illustrations of some of  the popular models for 1913 and among  them will be found slyles suitable for the different figures, all made wilh that care and precision  which has made the name C~C a la Grace  famous. To every pair is given that minute  detail of rmnufacture necessary to a perfect  corset: the beBt of materials in the construction  nnd proper inspection as to workmanship, so  that each pair is fully guaranteed in every particular. See that the name C~Q a la Grace is  on every pair.  Well gowned women are careful to have two Gr three corsets in  constant wear.  A flight difference in the model will make all the difference in the  set and drape of an evening gown���or a tailor-made.  When buying your new gown, it is a good idea to get ft C/C a la  Grace to go with it.
