A deputation representing the  residents of Glenmore, and consisting of Dr. Gaddes, Mr. Prowse and  Mr. Drysdale interviewed the council in reference to the supplying of  water and light from the city plant.  Mr. Prowse said that the Glenmore  residents had decided to ask the  city council if they could supply  the Glenmore people with domestic water and electric light, provided the latter bear the expense of  putting in their own pipe and pole  line.  Mayor Jones pointed out that  the Municipal Act only made provision for supplying water and  light within the city limits, and for  outside users a meter would have  ��� to be placed at the city limits and  any further piping and wiring done  by the users. This had been done  in the case of Bankhead.  Aid. Sutherland said he did not  see any difficulty in the city supplying electrie light, but the water  supply was a different matter, owing to the elevation to which il  would have to be pumped. They  could not connect such a service to  the present plant, as it would mean  raising the pressure from 50 lbs. to  about 180 lbs. If the pressure waa  increased in this way, they would  have to aupply all the city at the  same pressure, which would not  be advisable. The only way would  be a separate unit and separate  main  Dr. Gaddes said the reason they  had come before the council at the  present time was that they thought  the committee might be increasing  the size of their plant, and they  wished to ascertain the disposition  of the council to. auch a scheme.  If the council favored supplying  water and light to outside users in  this way, they themselves were willing to get infoination as to the  feasibility of the scheme. They  had other schemes under consideration for getting a domestic water  supply, but they had thought that  as the bulk of the settlers were as  yet at the end of the valley near  the city, the latter could supply  them with water more cheaply than  they could with any plan of their  own. There were about fifty prospective users at present which  number would probably increase  to about 300, so that this end was  thickly enough populated to make  it a paying proposition from the  start. If the council were willing  to undertake such a contract they  would go ahead at once and get  an engineer's report as to the power  and pressure required to force  water up to Glenmore.        V  The members of the council in  discussion were of opinion that  such extensions might eventually  become a source of revenue to the  city, and the deputation waa given  to understand that there could be  no harm in securing data as to the  scheme.  Aid. Sutherland thought lhat  electric light could be supplied for  the present winter il needed. The  council would put a meter at  the edge of.the city, and the residents would take the current from  there, putting in their own system  and looking after their own collections. The only expense to the  city would thus be for the measuring device*) al the point where the  current was taken up. There was,  of course, the question of boiler  capacity at the power house, bul  that was only periodically, when it  was nee essary" to clean one of them.  To provide for this arrangements  had been made ta use a small boiler belonging to Mi. Munson.  After some further talk on the  subject the deputation withdrew.  Before the question of ligh' was  left, a resolution was put through  fixing a minimum rate for light  users. In last amending the bylaw dealing with light rates, the  Mayor explained, the minimum  rate had been unintentionally struck  out, and the object of the resolution  was simply to restore it to what it  was before, a minimum' charge of  $1.00 per month. The change  would affect the light bills for  August.  The following letter was received from the manager of the Bank  of Montreal and read :  " To the Mayor  Dear Sir,���This Bank has gone  to considerable trouble and expense in planting tiees on the streets  opposite the bank building. Several  times some of them have' been  broken down and within the last  week the long tops of two of the  trees on Bernaid avenue have  been deliberately broken off. I  would suggest lhat -your council  draw the attention of the public  through the proas to such outrageous behaviour on the part of  hoodlums or fools and that the  police be instructed to give their  attention to the proteclion'&f trees  on the atreeta.  Yours faithfully,  P. DuMOULIN,  Manager."  A resolution was passed authorizing the city clerk to issue a  cheque for $65.00 in payment of  debenture coupons Nos. 4 and 5,  By-law 38, which had been lost in  the " Titanic " disaster.  A letter was read from the Provincial Board of Health, advising  the city that the sewerage plans recently submitted had been approved and filed.  The Mayor read a number of  petitions from property owners requesting sewers to be installed under the Local Improvement By-law.  The petitions called for sewers  on:��� ,  1. The alley behind the stores  on the south aide of Bernard Ave.  from Ellis street to the end.  2. The alley north of Bernard  avenue from Water street to Ellis  street.  3. On Bernard avenue from  Ellis street to Richter street.  4. On Bernard avenue from  Richter'street to Ethel street.  5. From Bernard avenue along  Richter street to Glenn ave, and  up Glenn ave. to Ethel street.  The applications were filed for  the present, a by-law it was mentioned waa being prepared to deal  with the installing of sewers.  Mr. F. S. Coates attended in reference to the opening of the lane  behind the Lakeview hotel, a root-  house belonging to the latter being  built across where the lane should  run. Mr. Coates said that Mrs.  Newson, the owner of the property, had been in town last week and  he found that she had no papers  or records in her possession which  could give her any claim to the  ground on which the building stood  He had, therefore, had the building examined with a view to moving it but found that this could  not be done without destroying it.  He asked as the lane was not  immediately required, that the  building be allowed to stand until  the sewers had been put in. If he  pulled the building down he would  nave to erect a fireproof structure,  and he did not wish to do this  until the location of the sewers had  been fixed.  There was some demur owing  to the fact that the limit of twenty-  one years during which the council  could claim its right to the lane  waa near at hand, and there was,  moreover! aome doubt aa to the  exact date when the shed was  erected. It was agreed, however,  to wait until the sewers had been  placed in.  Aid. Blackwood brought up ihe  question of the water connection  to thcexhibilion grounds. He said  he would like to see the council  provide free water and light as an  encouragement to the Association.  Aid. Sutherland said free light  had been given last year because  they had no meters in hand at the  time. As to free water, he pointed  out that the main pipe line had  been put along in the direction of  the grounds mostly for the use of  the Association. It was doubtful  if it would ever be used except by  the Association. Consequently he  thought that if the city placed a  connection into the grounds they  had done all that could be reason  ably expected.  Chief Sutherland drew the attention of the council to the condition  of the life-saving apnaratus on the  whaif. The life-belts were rotten  and new ropes were required. The  dragging apparatus too seemed to  be of very little use.  The matter was left in llie chief's  hands to see that the apparalus  was put into proper shape.  Aid. Blackwood introduced a  discussion on street grading, advocating a unilorm system, to be fixed  by a resolution of the council.  Aid. Sutherland pointed out  that no resolution they could pass  would be binding upon future  councils or prevent them from following their own ideas.  The meeting adjourned until  Tuesday next.  Sad Drowning  Disaster!  Large Crowd Visits  Peachland  Regattc  Between two and three hundred  people from Kelowna visited  Peachland Regatta last Thursday.  Most of these were carried on the  s.s. " Orchard City," which had  been chartered for the occasion by  the Fire Brigade boys. Two trips  were made, one in the morning at  9 o'clock, which included the Senior War Canoe crew who were  scheduled lo race in the morning  against Peachland for-lhe Forester's  cup, -and won it too by about half-  a-dozen lengths. The Junior War  Canoe race went to Peachland after  a good contest. Kelowna won the  Senior race for the Lang cup and  medals, but tied wilh Peachland  for the Robinson shield. In ihe  Mixed War Canoe race Peachland  carried off the honors. Foote of  Kelowna broke his piddle and  jumping overboard swam ashore.  Several of the other events were  won by Kelowna contestants. I.  Weddell won first in the boys'  swimming race for 12 years and  under, and third in the 15 years  and under.  The 60 yards men's swim drew  only three entries��� all Kelowna  men. Errington tied with Beale,  and swimming again Beale came  first.  The diving resulted, Neale of  Kelowna first, Batchelor of Peachland second and J. F. Burne third.  The Peachland committee were  favored by splendid weather, and  the result was a most enjoyable  day's sport.  Government Appoint Local  Irrigation Engineer*  The government has decided lo  appoint a number of local engineers to be stationed in the dry belt  of the province and to have charge  of the distribution of water tt�� the  farmers for irrigation purposes. It  will be their duty to decide how  much water each farmer shall have  in view of the kind of crop he is  growing and upon what days of  the week the waler shall be utilized  by each farmer. These engineers  will also help to collect data for  the provincial water survey, wliich  is now being undertaken.and which  when completed will constitute a  complete record of all the streams  of British Columbia ; their height  and flow at different seasons of the  year; the amount of power lhat  can be developed; the quantity of  water available for irrigation, und  any other information about them  lhat may be useful. It is probable  that tho new officials will be named  aa aoon aa the Minister ol Lands,  the Hon. W. R. Ross, returns from  his present trip to the east.  ���" Province.''  As the news of the sad drowning  accident which occurred last Saturday afternoon became 'circulated  around town, expressions of horror  and sympathy were heard on every  side. The victim, Mrs. Eva P. McMillan, while bathing near the  Aqualic building, got out of her  depth, and being unable lo swim  sank out of sight and was drowned  before help could reach her.  The deceased young woman was  the wife of Niel McMillan, formerly of Kelowna, now living at Seattle,  a daughter-in-law of Mr. Dan McMillan, and was here on a visit  from Seattle, where her husband is  at present working. She and her  sisters-in-law, Annie and Jessie,  had been down to the bathing  beach frequently during the past  lew weeks, and nn Saturday afternoon had followed their usual practice. They had been in the water  some little time when Annie McMillan heard her sister-in-law shouting for help. She saw that Mrs.  McMillan was getting beyond her  depth and swam lo her assistance,  but after a few frantic struggles had  the horrifying experience of seeing  the unfortunate woman throw up  her arms and sink from sight. Several people were in the water at  the time but it seems that only one  or two heard the pathetic cry for  help, and it -was not until some  lime after that even those in the  immediate neighborhood realized  that someone had been drowned.  As soon as they heard that someone had gone down Messrs. Willis,  Beale and Foote and others made  gallant efforts by diving at the spot  indicated lo recover the body but  at the time no trace of it could be  found.  Chief Constable Sutherland was  summoned and getting assistance  commenced dragging operations at  once. The accident happened  about four o'clock in the atfernoon,  and although dragging waa con-  tinued until midnight the efforts  were fruitless. Sunday morning as  soon aa daylight appeared the drag.  ging was recommenced and about  nine o'clock ihe body of deceased  was found in about 70 feet of water  some twenty yards out from where  she sank. Sadly the remains were  conveyed to the undertaking parlors to await an inquest.  A jury was summoned Monday  morning and the inquest was com'  menced before Dr. Boyce about ten  o'clock. The witnesses called were  the Misses Jessie and Annie McMillan, Rubv Raymer, Mr. Beale,  Dr. Knox and Mr Foote, the latter  in charge of the bathing cubicles  for the Aquatic Association.  The story of young Annie McMillan, who was practically the  only eye-witness of the dreadful  calamity was pathetic in the extreme, twice had the deceased, as  she slipped further and further  down the sand into the deep water,  grabbed her, but each time she  had managed to get free. She had  told the other girla near that Mra.  McMillan had aunk, but for a time  thev had believed her to be only  fooling them, and thua valuable  time waa loat before a general  alarm waa given.  It was this element of doubt  which waa the saddest part of the  unfortunate affair. No one seemed  to know juat what had happened.  The children were naturally excited and could not give any coherent  account, and thoae who had rushed  to the rescue and were diving in  search of the body were themselves scarcely convinced that the  whole thing was not a hoax. Mr.  Beale in hia evidence aaid it waa  fully twenty minutea betore he waa  quite aure that aomeone waa drowned. If the alarm had been given  at once the young woman could  have been aaved.  Evidence was given aa to the  nature of the shore which slopes  down gradually to a depth of about  six feet when the edge of a kind  of bench is reached beyond which  the water is of very great depth.  The Association has placed a rope  with floats to mark the limit for  non-swimmers, but aa it waa atated  bathers frequently take chances  and get out beyond the rope.  Mrs. McMillan was beyond the  rope at the time and it is supposed  that the strong wind from the  aouth and the waah from the s.s.  " Okanagan " which passed at the  Dominion Fruit Crop  Report  Apples Plentjful in Canada but  Short in Europe  The fruit crop report of the department of Agriculture issued last  week atatea that the prospects of  the apple crop are favorable. Frou.  most quarters the growth is reported to be excellent and in many  cases larger than usual.  At the same time all apples are  likely to be smaller than uaual, and  the average in parts of the St. Lawrence Valley districts is less than  half a crop, and in some instances  total failures are reported.  The conditions of the market so  far as Canadian apples are concerned is fairly re-assuring. The apple  crop in Europe is short, and thia  shortage has a direct influence on  the export price of Canadian  apples.  Germany imports an average of  three million barrels of apples from  ihe surrounding continental countries annually, and there seems no  reason why there should not be a  splendid opening this vear in Germany and probably other countries  on the continent.  The prospect for improved transportation from Canada direct to  Germany is good. France may be  expected to take fairly large quantities of the late winter varities of  apples, and the British markets,  where there is undoubtedly a general shortage of fruit, offer more  than ordinary attractions this year.  In Eastern Canada pears are light  and in the Lake Ontario country  north lo Sharbot Lake and Georgian Bay, they are almost a failure.  1 he grape crop is excellent.  The report states that the small  fruit crop ol Canada is suffering a  decline, the causes being difficulty  in gelling packers, the inadequate  liansporiation facilities, and sometimes low prices.

Vaccine to Prevent Typhoid  The provincial Board of Health  has issued a bulletin ou the value  of inoculation as a protection  against Ivphoid fever. I he vaccine  may be injecled by a doctor or by  a trained nurse and three injections  are sufficient, at intervals of ten  days. Dr. Baply, in the bulletin,  slates that after the lint injection  there mav be a alight feeling nf  illness and headache, but seldom  sufficient tu cause a man to abstain  from work, while the subsequent  injections cause no discomfort.  Statistics, he adds, have shown  that of those properly inoculated  wherever it has been tried practically none hnve taken typhoid  within a year, and protection is  probably affmded for a much  longer period.

When any of the residents here run out of hay, they have  to have it shipped in instead of  buying from a neighbor, who  though only a few miles south of  the wharf cannot be reached with  such a road. We have no road  communication with Weat Bank  which place would greatly benefit  by a through road. There hat been  much talk of a lake shore road, but  the already expensive attempts at  such should prove its futility. If  tuch a thing were' possible and it  wat used at a motor drive, one  would view the beautiful scenery  of.the country about as well by going down in a well and gazing aloft  at attempting to view it from such  a position.

Wood���or  Concrete ?  a  IF you were to build two silos���one of wood, the other of concrete���aide by side, and  theh could see them as they will look after five yesrs of service, you wouldn't have  to think mica to decide which it the best material. In a few years more there  wouldn't be much of the original wooden silo left���the repairing you'd have to do would be  as troublesome and cost as much as the building of an entirely naw one. But the passage of  five, ten, fifteen or even twenty years will make no difference to the hard-as-roclc wall of the  concrete silo.  CONCRETE SILOS LAST FOREVER  WIND, rain, lire and Ijyhuiing are alike defied by concrete.      You need no Insurance against its  destruction, because it oannor be destroyed.   Concrete silos are belt lor another reason.   The  concrete keeps the ensilage at an even temperature, 10 that it "cures" better, and therefore contains  more food-value tor your stock.

Remember \  LAKESIDE  is the best buying in Kelowna  F,- R. E. DeHART  Sole Agent   -   KELOWNA'  WE HAVE NOW  EVERY  FACILITY  FOR DOING  HIGH CLASS  JOB PRINTING  The Three Guardsmen  The Gurney-Oxford Range ia fitted with three  device* which constantly and uncompromisingly stand  on guard to tee that the fire is always under perfect  control���that the coal bills are sheared down to the  lowest figure���that the oven is always evenly and  properly heated���that no clinkers obstruct the free  burning and propety.ventilation of the fire.  The Gurney-Economizer, fitted on the smoke pipe,  is the only draft you have to attend to; a small lever  put up or down entirely regulates the fire. It saves  one ton of coal in six. It carries little heat up the  chimney���only the smoke. It feeds the gases which  burn to the fire-box, and it cannot be had on any  other range than the Gurney-Oxford.  The Gurney-Oxford oven is surrounded by flues  that carry an equal amount of heat to all sides. This  almost guarantees results in cooking by providing an  oven evenly heated, without cold corners or variation.  The Gurney-Oxford Grate is the result of exhaustive tests to find the proper carrying surface for  the fire. The fire has abundant air to breathe, and  the less amount of coal burned is all consumed. So  then, the housewife who has the," Three Guardsmen "  watching over her range, will experience security and  satisfaction in cooking that is not provided by any  other range.  D.
