The  permission waa granted.  An invitation is as x^xi from the  Winnipeg Town Planning Commission to the council to attend  the first national congress to be  held July 15, 16. and 17.  Aid. Millie mentioned that there  were a lot of people putting up  buildings and moving them without getting permits. The building  inspector found it difficult to get  after them. Mayor Jones said the  chief of police would be instructed  to attend the matter.  A letter was addressed to "The  Reverend President of the City,"  which proved to be an application  from a Jap to establish a new pool  room. He admitted that one such  business was in town, but saw no  reason why there should not be  another in such a growing city As  an alternative, if the council could  not comply with his request, he  asked that they would allow him  to start a Japanese club. The letter was laid over for consideration.  Aid. Millie asked if it was true,  as had been rumored, that a white  man had been refused permission  to establish a pool room. If so, he  did not think a Jap should be  allowed to start one.  Aid. Sutherland, and the Mayor  both aaid that the rumor was not  the truth, as no application had  been received from anyone.  Reference was made by Aid.  Raymer to a new office building  which was going up in town, the  foundations of which he did not  think were sufficiently safe or sanitary in that the 2x8 joists were  being laid almost close to the damp  ground, without any provision  being made for ventilation. He  thought the building inspector's  attention should be called to it. He  alsopoinlcd out some discrepancies  between the specifications assigned  by the building inspector and the  requirements of the building bylaw.  The matter of loaning the city's  sinking fund was discussed, and  two applications for loans approved.  The following resolution was  also passed: 'That the city raise  by way of temporary loan from  the Bank of Montreal any moneys  required for the purposes of���(I)  Extending the waterworks (2) Purchasing shool lands (3) Erecting  school building (4) Constructing  sewer systems (5) Permanent street  improvement, and that for this put-  pose debentures, under by-laws  109, 110, 111, 112,114, be hy-  pothecated."  The Mayor exhibited a plan of  Mr. F. E. R. Wollaston's subdivision near the cen.etery, and pointed  out a block of 8 acres which he  thought the city might consider  securing for cemetery extensions.  The matter was discussed, and  it was dacided to approach Mr.  Wollaston for a price on the land.  Aid. Sutherland mentioned that  the light cemmittee had made arrangements with P. Burns & Co.  for a flat rate on their electric  motor of $7 per month. The new  cannery had also been given a flat  water rate of $100 for the year.  Aid. Raymer reported that the  board of works had met the engineer respecting the improvement of  Bernard avenue, and the latter had  made a suggestion which met with  their approval. He was to make  the finished road from kerb to  kerb 70 feet wide, with a ten foot  boulevard on each side. He was  to put in a foundation of heavy  rock, with a finishing coat of gravel  from the sewage farm. The rock  would afford all necessary drainage.  Mayor Jones mentioned that the  engineers had informed him that  they would require a site for the  pumping station in connection  with the sewerage system. A lot  had been pointed out in the K. L.  O. Co.'s subdivision as suitable, but  was too large for the purpose.  The matter was discussed at  some length, and it was decided to  take options from the K. L. O. Co.,  on two lots which might serve the  purpose.  Aid. Taylor pointed out that the  city had neglected its due display  of loyalty un Dominion Day by  omitting to have its flag flying.  The meeting then adjourned un-  till Monday next.  Badly Hurt by Explosion of  Gasoline  Mr. J. M. Croft is in hospital thin  week as the result of an exftlo:. -,i  in his tent of a can of gasoline: Mr.  Croft owns a lot in Woodlawn and  had erected a temporary tent in  which he lived. On Tuesday evening about 6.30 he was making preparations for supper when the  neighbours were startled to hear a  loud explosion and to see a large  hole blown in the roof of the tent,  which caught fire and with its contents was completely destroyed.  Mr. Croft was badly burned about  the legs and head, and after being  attended to by Dr. Knox he was  removed to the hospital. We are  glad to hear he is getting along  well and expects to be around  again in a few days.  Disaster at Regina  Regina was visited Sunday last  by a tornado which, although first  accounts were greatly exaggerated  was undoubedly terribly disastrous  in its destruction of life and property. Thirty people at least have  lost their lives ond millions of dollars damage has been done to  buildings, some of Regina's finest  structures being in ruins. Some  three or four hundred people were  more or less seriously injured and  thousands rendered homeless. It  is estimated that at least 500 buildings were destroyed or damaged.  A " patriotic service " is to be  held next Sunday morning in connection with the Presbyterian Sunday School. This service will take  the place of the regular morning  |ervice< An address will be given  by the Rev. A. Dunn, B.D., on  "Citizenship." The children will  assemble in the Sunday School  Hall at 10.45, and the Bible Class  meet as usual at 10 o'clock.  Certificates for the year's work at  Mission Creek school were won by  the following pupils : Alice Swordy, proficiency; Beatrice McClure,  Deportment; and Ruby Lytle for  Regularity and Punctuality.  Miss Irwin was an arrival by  Wednesday's boat from Regina on  a visit to Mrs. Geo. Meikle.  Mr. and Mis. Thos. Lawson and  family left for Victoria this morning, where Mrs. Lawson will remain for some weeks.  Mr. A. R. Davy is to hold an  auction sale of household goods  at the home of Mr. A. Hanmore,  Harvey Ave., on Saturday July 13,  at 2 o'clock.

Rutland News  From our own correspondent  Saturday's Wrestling  Match  orctrdT��oDUM?.a\>hSi, "5 Sutherland Stand, His Gro,   Winnipeg.    He intends going into Against Connolly  business eventually in Kelowna.  The many friends of Miss Edna  McGee will be sorry to learn that  she has resigned her position as  teacher. Their best wishes are  extended for her success in her  future studies.  Still another school meeting I the  annual one this lime, on Saturday,  the 13th, in the schoolhouse at the  unusual hour of 10 o'clock (a.m.).  All interested in school matters  should make an effort to attend.  Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Woolsey  returned on Monday from their  short western trip. They are glad  to get back to the Rutland district  having seen nothing to equal it  during their travels.  Principal R. C. Warden left on  Tuesday for Victoria, where he  intends spending his vacation and  also to take a course of instruction  in cadet training. Mrs. Warden  and family are staying at Okanagan  Centre during the holidays.  Mrs. Dunton, of Vancouver, is  visiting her brother, Mr. A. E,  Clark ; she is accompanied by her  children, who will no doubt cheer  and enliven their lonesome uncle  during their month's stay.  Most Rutlanders observed Dominion Day by working hard and  blessing the abundant moisture of  ihe past few days, although several  flags were flying in honor of Canada's birthday, notablv the one  which nearly surrounded the home  of the three bntchelors.  The store of to-day has a decided  up-to-date appearance and the increased wall and floor space should  enable the stock to be shown to  greater advantage. The post-office  department is much more conveniently situated, in fact the whole  ground floor is to be used for business purposes. Mr. Crowcroft intends to rent the Sproul homestead  now owned bv Mr. Amyot.

Last Saturday night, before an  audience of about 500 people, Bob  Sutherland, of Kelowna, was amidst  tremendous enthusiasm, declared  winner of the great wrestling match  against Pat Connolly, the champion  of Great Britain and Ireland.  Nothing of the kind on so great  a scale has ever been held in town  before, and much local interest  had been evoked, the bias of lavor  being, of course, toward the local  man whose past history in the  world of sport speaks for itself.  The match was preceded by  several first-class preliminaries in  the way of boxing and wrestling,  but the eager expectations of the  audience were realized when at  two minutes to ten the two men  entered the ring, each being welcomed with a round of applause.  Both appeared in the pink of condition and looked typical specimens of physical culture and fine  manhood.  Mr. W. D. MacDonald acted as  referee and Messrs. Chas. Rimmer  and Dick Edwards as seconds for  Sutherland and Connolly respectively. Bob gave the Irishman 5 lbs.  turning the scale at 180, whilst his  opponent went at 185.  The conditions of ihe match as  announced by the referee after the  introduction of the men were that  Connolly undertook lo throw Sutherland twice within one hour, a  throw to consist of the holding  square on the mat both shoulders  for the space of two to three  seconds; any throw off the mat  not to be counted and the strangle  hold disallowed.  At eight minutes past ten the  gong sounded, and at the same  instant the men came to grips, and  from that time on the audience  were kept in a ferment of excitement. The men seemed pretty  well matched and neither gained  any advantage over the opening  passes. Three minutes from the  start, however, Connolly threw  Sutherland to the ground but amid  cheers the local man recovered  himself. Already the perspiration  made it difficult for the men to  come to grips but after some skirmishing Sutherland turned the  tables and the challenger met the  mat. It ms but the work of a  minute though when he was up  and showing marvellous strength  picked Sutherland up and swung  him round like a child.  From then the battle commenced  in dead earnest and both put in  some strenuous work. The half  and double Nelson holds were  common and Connolly twice got  the " scissors " on Sutherland who  just prior to the call of 30 minutes  obtained a double Nelson hold  and nearly succeeded in putting  Connolly's shoulders down. This  naturally evoked a lot of excitement  on the part of the audience which  refused to quit passing jocular  remarks at the request of the  referee. But the visitor proved  more than equal to the occasion  and arching his back as though it  was a matter of ease rolled over  out of danger.  Both men were now breathing  vety hard and Connolly began to  force the pace a bit making Sutherland do a lot of work. Ihe  audience caught its breath as ihe  referee went to his knees as Connolly got a half Nelson on Bob,  but by exerting what seemed superhuman strength he freed himself  and gained his feet.  A game spirit was maintained  on both sides, and a splendid  spirit of friendly rivalry was marked throughout the match, only once  did the referee have to speak in  stern tones.  At 45 minutes Connolly got  what appeared to be an advantage  over Sutherland and how Bob  escaped is yet a mystery. The  pace now became fast and the  men were obviously putting forth  their best efforts. Ihe local man  frustrated an attempt for a leg hold  and threw his man to the mat.  Excitement now became intense  and it seemed that Bob would  score a throw after all. There  wete three minutes to run to time  and both men seemed to realize  it. The audience in the front were  now   standing   and   as   Connolly  Induction of New-  Presbyterian Minister  Rev. Alec. Dunn, B.D., Enters  Upon  New Ministry  Last Thursday evening the ceremonies connected with the induction to the charge of the Presbyterian church of the Rev Alex.  Dunn. B.D., took place, and were  altended by a large congregation.  The Rev. G. H. Daly, B. A., of Summerland presided as interm moderator, the Rev. C. O. Main, B.D.,  of Vernon leading the devotional  exercises. The ceremony of induction was performed by the Rev.  R. J. wilSon. B.A., of Vancouver,  who gave the solemn and inspiring  charge to the new minister. An  eloquent sermon was preached by  ihe Rev. G. M. Milliean, D.D, of  Vernon, the Rev. J. G. Reitl, B.A.,  of Salmon Arm also delivered an  address. The service was a most  impressive one, and the special  music rendered by the choir was  much appreciated.  Mr. Dunn preached the Sunday  services forthe first time after his  induction, and created a very favorable impression. He has had a  very wide and varied ministerial  experience, and it is anticipated  will take a prominent place in the  religious wora of the city.  He 'vas at Fernie in the early  days of that cily, and again later in  its history. His work has not been  all confined lo this country, he  having spent some time teaching  in Beyrout College, in Svria, and  afterwards in College work in Central India. Latterly he has been  assistant minister at St. Andrew's  Church, Vancouver, where he was  exlremely popular. It is from  Vancouver that he comes to Kelowna.  Wedding at Rutland  A wedding was celebrated on  Wednesday morning at the Methodist church, Rutland, when Miss  Ada Lock and Mr. Frank Bouvelte  were married by the Rev. W.  Vance. The pretty bride was  charmingly arrayed in white silk.  with silk net, pearls and veil. 1 he  bridegroom was dressed in���oh  well, it doesn't matter, he was  there, anyway I Miss Emm? Bouvette and Mr, Henry Lock supported the bride and groom, whilst  Effie Bouvette and Jennie Lock  made dainty-looking flower girls.  The church was very prettily  decorated and well filled with their  many friends who wished tin m ihe  best of luck. Being the first wedding in the church lli^ bride was  presented by the officials with a  handsomely-bound Bible, and the  popular young couple were ihr  recipients of many useful ancl  valuable presents. In the evening  a reception was held al the  Bouvette home in town.  An interesting wedding crtr-  mony took place last Friday at St.  Michael's church when Miss Kate  Thompson, of Toronto, Out., was  married to Provincial Con'table  John Tooth. The ceremony was  performed by the Rev. Thomas  Greene.  once more escaped by the p.over-  bial hair's breadth, time was called.  Immediately the ring wasbeseiged  by delighted spectators who showered congratulations on both men  which ihey responded lo bv short  speeches.  Remnrking on his failure to  throw Sutherland Connolly asked  indulgence seeing thut he lint! been  travelling for quite a while, nlso  lucking training. Not having met  with defent in the course of his  seven years' career he was confident that, after training, he could  beat the local man, but acknowledged the fact that Sutherland  was a wee bit more than he had  anticipated. If a reasonable gate  -would be forthcoming he would be  prepared to wrestle to a finish in  about three weeks' time.  Sutherland replying, said he had  met his man before, and would be  pleased to meet him again whenever convenient. He thanked the  people very heartily for the splendid way in which they had supported him.

Okanagan Mission  A special veslry meeting wus  held at St. Andrew's Church on  Friday, June 21st, to receive ihe  report of the Vicarage Building  ( ommittee. The Rev. C. H. Meyrick occupied the chair, and about  twenty-four residents attended.  Ihe report of the committee was  presented by the Hon. Sec, Mr.  Chater, and stated that two estimates had been sent in, by M. J.  Curts of Kelownn and W. 1 hotnp-  son of the Mission. Both of them,  however, would be in excess of  ihe maximum sum agreed on by a  previous Vestry meeting, and so  the committee had prepared a provisional plan, the cost of which,  with outbuildings and site, would  be about $2,300. It was moved  by Mr. A. 11. Bell, seconded by  Mi. R. Gray, that this more modest  plan be adopted by the Veslry,  and that building be started as  soon as possible. Mr. J. H.Thompson wished to know how ihe financial position was, and in answer  Mr. I larvey announced that about  $1,300 had been promised (or ihe  vicarage, spread over three years  I he rest would have lo be raised  by mortgage, and Mr. A. S. Burde-  kni staled thut his father was prepared to advance the necessary  sum at 6�� per cent. Mr. T liomp-  son wished to know how the annual income of the church was likely to be affected by the proposed  separation of the parish, and by  the building. Mr. I larvey replied  that an annual sum of about $700  would be requited, while the present income wa�� about $500. Mr.  Thompson then moved as an amendment that the building of a vicarage be postponed until the Mission funds were more able to meet  the increased annual costs of a separate parish ; this was seconded by  W. Walker, and carried. So that  for the present, matters remain as  they were.  The Okanagan Mission 2nd  Tennis team won by 6 matches to  3, but the contest was quite a close  one, as Kelowna won 12 sets and  I 14 games to the Mission's 9 sets  and 106 games.

I lie government orchard inspectors paid the district a visit last  week, looking over the local orchards for manifestations of pear  blight and other troublesome diseases.  An accident, which might very  easily have terminated fatally, occurred last week on the Vernon-  Kelowna road. Mr. J. R. Bready  was driving lo Vernon 'v ith a horse  and rig loaded with strawberries,  and when reaching a point on the  new toad above Johnson & Cui's-  well's sawmill encountered an auto.  I he horse became frightened and  bolted over the bunk upsetting the  rig and scattering the strawberries  all over the embankment. Just  previous to the upsetting of the rig  Mr. Bready jumped out, and miraculously escaped unhurt, wilh the  exception of a severe shaking up  and bruising all over. This is nil  ihe more remarkable as Mr. Bready  is a man well advanced in years  A neighbor, Mr. Monsees, was  coming along immediately behind,  und wns able to take Mr. Bieady  home again, the rig being all  broken up. The driver of ihe car  never stopped or rendered assist  am e in any way, just kept on going.  We understand later that the owner of the car has made good to  Mr. Bready tha amount of damage  which ensued. There seems to be  a manifest need (01 greater care  being exercised by some of the  drivers of automobiles, a lack of  all consideration for that portion of  the travelling public who have to  confine themselves to the horse-  drawn vehicles, being altogether  too prevalent.  The Dominion Day Celebrations  are now a thing of the past but we  feel sure the memory of the enjoyable day spent by all will not soon  fade away. Weather conditions  were not as propitious as they  might have been, and slightly  marred some of the events taking  place in the late afternoon, and  the rain prohibited the open-air  dancing for the evening, which  would have been enjoyed so much  by lovers of this form of amusement. Quite a number of people  from different points in the Valley  were present, and also from across  the lake. The wharf was vety  tastefully decorated for the occasion with evergreens and bunting.  Arches were placed at intervals  ucross the main street, and the  more prominent buildings were  also decorated. The open-air  dancing plutform cume in for its  share, and was vety prettily adorned wilh festoons of evergreens nnd  Japanese lanterns. I he most interesting event of the day was the  lasl launch race. The competitors  were the "Oiler" owned by Mi.  Ewing, "Rip II." of Kelowna, and  "Lugretta" owned by F. Wilson of  Carr'a Landing. 1 he course was  some eight miles in length. The  "Lugretta" was in first winning by  a minute and a half. The "Otter"  came second half a minute ahead  of "Rip II." Mr. Ewing unfortunately allowed a few drops of water  to fall on his Bpark plug, which  caused a vexatious delay till the  water could be dried off again.  The 6-10 h.p. launch race was won  hy Mr. J. Goldie, manager of the  Rainbow ranch, and the Ik h,p, by  the Rev. D. Robertson. The lake  was uot in the best of shape fur  racing, quite u wind sptlnging up  in the afternoon nnd making II  pietty rough and choppy, I'he  swimming and diving competitions  proved very interesting, and some  excitement was caused by the cowboy race. Dancing was carried on  till a late hour in the Westbury  Hall and Grand View Hotel. The  Women's Auxiliary ran a refreshment booth on the grounds throughout the day which rewarded their  efforts by proving a financial success.

Labor for Fruitgrowers  G. H. E. HUDSON  As a i��� ���su't of an inquiry conduct'  ej by the British Columbia Fruit  Grower,' Association throughout  the various fruit districts of the province, asking what labour would  be required for the current year, it  is of interest to note that the fruit  distiicls are much more thoroughly  supplied wilh labour than was the  case two years ago, when the lasl,  general inqnirv was instituted. At  that time fruitgrowers made appl  cation for 1450 men ; as a result of  the present enquiry they have  asked for only 300.  Wages in the fruit districts have  advanced slightly in two years, and  the conditions of the working man  have also inptoved in that fruitgrowers are more generally supplying comfortable lodging and suitable board.  From the inquiry il was learned  that on Vancouver Island and in  the Lower Mainland suitable help  can be secured with little difficulty  without any special effort on the  part of organizations for the purpose. It is true, however, that in  these districts the Chinese and Japanese to some extent receive the  preference over white men.  The Okanagan, which will have  the largest crop of fruit in its history this year, has made the most  enquiries for labour, and it is evident that there will be suitable employment for men adapted to the  work ol harvesting and handling  Iruit.  Summerland's tax rate has been  fixed for the present year at 12  mills on the dollar.  The western trip of the Duke of  Connaught is to extend only as far  as Winnipeg.  Field Marshal Sir George Sluart  While, defender of Ladysmith, and  one of the most distinguished soldiers in the Btitish army, has just  died.  The Dominion Government will  build an elevator this year al the  head of Lake Superior that will  hold 3,000,000 bushels of grain.  Hon. Sam Hughes, minister of  militia, has decided not to comply  with the request of the Historical  Association of Massachusetts to return to the United Stales the gun  captured by the British at Bunkers  Hill. The proposal has met with  m��ch opposition in Canada and  the minister has decided to adopt  a " What we have we hold " policy  in regard to war relics.  Nearly 200 strong, representing  investments of millions of dollars  in lumbering, grain farming, mercantile and railroad interests, men  of western Canada's most successful organizations gathered in Calgary thia week for the Panama  canal conference. They are meeting together to arouse interest  throughout Canad.t in general, so  that when the Panama canal is  opened Canada will have in its  Pacific seaports those facilities that  will enable the Dominion to take  its place with the other nations of  ihe world in reaching forth and  grasping the opportunities that the  new waterway route will open up.  Twenty - six yeara ago last  Friday (June 28) the first transcontinental train of the C.P.R. left Dal-  housie station, Montreal, for the  Pacific coast. The western terminus was then Port Moody which  was shortly after changed to Vancouver, and the eastern terminus  of the road was Montreal, and not  St. John, N. B., as it is today. During the interval matvelotia changes  have taken place in the development of the country. At that time  there were many who despaired of  the future of the C.P.R., and imagined that the attempt of Canada  to build a railway across the continent was an impossible dream.  If you are a housewife you cannot rea.  aonably hope to be healthy or beautiful  by washing dishes, sweeping and doing  housework all day, and crawling inio bed  tired at night.

On both 'he baseball and  lacrosse league tables they have  gone near zero whilst the football has been laid very low, more  on acconnt ol bad weather than  anything else.  The lacrosse game Thursday  last proved a fiasco so far as local  hopes were concerned, Armstrong  taking the point by 9 goals lo 4.  It is greatly to be regretted that the  old spirit of spite rather than sport,  about which we had complaint  last season, has once more been  allowed to creep into the games���  that fisticuffs and doctors' bills  should take the place of game,  clean sport and a better gate. This  was in strong evidence last week,  and whilst we attach no direct  blame to either side it is onlv fair  to add that the two injured men  were both members of the Kelowna team and both laid out by the  same man who was suspended for  two minutes. Giving them their  due, the Armstrong team were  easily superior to the local boys,  who lack a goal-keeper.

JI-3  Armstrong, at Armstrong, where  the boys once again forfeited the  point, the result being 5-4.

Coming to baseball much about  the same state of affairs seems to  exist. Lasl Wednesday they lost  to Enderby and Monday they lost  to Vernon at Vernon, the result  being 13-6, Enderby seems lo  have a great team, but they met  their match last week when they  played Armstrong who beat them  after a great game 4-1. Nevertheless they still remain an easy first  in the league. Their next game is  on July 12th at Kelowna when  Vernon play lacrosse here as well.  This is the date of the Orange  Lodge festival and should help to  make next Thursday a regular  banner day.

It was a matter for regret that more  spectators did not attend to encourage the boys who at 3.30 lined up  as follows:���  Lower Town Upper Town  D. McMillan Coal V. DeHart  ��.

Copeland  The Lower Town opened the  score in the first quarter and scored  twice, the ball being for the greater  part of the lime at the Upper  Town end of the field.  In the second quarter the Uppet  Town boys made a change in their  goaltender, Geo. Day taking the  place of Victor DeHart, but still  the ill-luck which seemed to dog  their path remained with them and  to make matters more uncomfortable the Lower Towners scored  two more goals.  At half-time there was a little  trouble with the Upper Town team,  who wished to make some changes  in their players, which, of course,  the Lower Town team would not  stand for and after an interval of  about ten minutes an amicable  understanding was arrived at and  play resumed.  In the following quarter play was  about even the Upper Town boys  making a good effort to retrieve  the lost goals, but all to no purpose,  instead their opponents once more  netted the ball for a score of 5-0.  The final quarter was practically  a replica of the third, except for  the fact that no goals were scored,  and the match closed in favor of  the Lower Town team by the  aforesaid score.  UQr. 2ndQr.

Ti'li'lyiiiiirniiililiiir  Great activity In beiiiK evlnned, by  numerous Inventors lu tha field of  telegraphic science for the purpose of  Increasing the advantages of this  system of communication, u result no  iloubt due to the powerful competition  that haB been offered by the widespread use of the telephune. A Continental Inventor has perfected an appliance which he describes as the  'teletypograph.' The Idea Is to enable  messages ��.o be telegraphed to an  addressee and Immediately written  down, a kind of typewriter being employed for Uie purpose. The Inventor  haa submitted his apparatus to Ihe  French Government postal official*,  who have expressed a dealre to Bee  ths Invention tn actual operation, anil  who propose to Introduce It on lines  of leaser Importance at firat where  the telegraph operators are not very  expert In handling the Morae code.  Should the system prove commercially  auoceBBful under these conditions Itn  application will be extended to first-  class lines, and possibly adopted  throughout the whole French telegraphic system.  THE (01,011 OF ANIMALS  The Influence ol Surrnundlugs ou tbe  Coloring ol Animals und Birds.  That colour may he Influenced In  some cases by the taking of special  kinds ot food is well known, but little  Ib understood aa yet of the extent to  which pigmentary colour lu animals  Is related to the particular kind of  food limy eat.. Writing upon the sub-  Jeot of this question In his work upun  "The Colour-Sense," Mr. Grant Allen  drawa attention to the fact, as of probable significance, that the two moat  beautiful classes of animals In tbe  world, as tar aa colour Is concerned  ��� butterflies and humming-birds ���  are, perhaps, the most exclusively  flower-hautlng of all Invertebrate or  vertebrate oreatursa respectively, and  the parrots and their allies, which  possess equally beautiful colouring,  are fruit-eaters. Iudeed, a correspondence with, If not a direct relationship to, the colour and nature of food,  aa well aa of habitual surroundings,  may be traced, with few contradictions, and many of these but seeming;  and the general rule emerges that  animals that possess conspicuous  colouring themselves are those, also,  whioh live upon thr .essence of  flowers, or fruits, and are guided, In  the search for food, by their "eye for  colour." The Inverse of thia rule Ib  found equally to correspond, on the  whole, with facts, for the raptorial  blrda, which live mostly In the air,  and whose senses are more attuned  to discriminate sound and movement,  are generally, themselves wanting In  bright colours. The whiter-plumage,!  bl-ds In a flock of pigeons, for Instance, are nearly always the tint to  be destroyed by hawks on land, and on  the ooaat where there are sea-eagles,  blaok pigeons are at an equal disadvantage.
