The sudden jump  Jin lhe figures had caused the pro-  Blest, but upon enquiry they had  ��� discovered that they were assessed  J only in the same proportion as  [other owners in the same district,  land had therefore decided to stop  (proceedings.

Wilson for the  cily to cut off his lawn water service for the winter, drew forth the  suggestion from the water committee that il might be advisable to  increase the charges made for re-  connection of light and water service, as the present fees only covered the actual cost of making connection.  Mention was made of the work  of the sewerage engineers, and in  reference to the gasoline engines  which were being used for pumping, Aid. Sutherland said he  thought electric motors might have  been used, the first cost being very  much less, and the expense cf gasoline would be eliminated, power  being used from the city mains.  Aid. Taylor said he had spoken  to the engineers on the subject,  and they had informed him that  some of the engines had been purchased second-hand and that they  were better adapted to the work,  being more easily moved around.  The council would also secure a  better price for them when they  had finished with them than for  motors.  Mayor Jones pointed out that the  building inspectors contract for the  year had expired. It would be  necessary lo either renew llie contract with Mr. Bigger or advertise  again for tenders.  It was decided tint the building  committee interview Mr. Biggerand  find out whether he would continue in the position for another  year, and upon what terms, reporting to the council.  Aid. Sutherland reported that  the new generator to replace the  defective one in the power house  had. arrived.  Aid. Raynrer was appointed  Acting Mayor in place of Mavor  Jones, who with the city clerk was  to be absent for a few days at Revelstoke, attending the convention  of the Union of B.C Municipalities.  The meeting adjourned until  called by the Mayor or Acting  Mayor.  Vancouver Business  Men Visiting Valley  A party of about 30 members  or the Vancouver Board of Trade  are making this week a tour of the  Okanagan with a view to spying  out its possibilities from an investors point of view. The parly  arrived in Vernon yesterday and  were present at the Okanagan  Apple Show being held there.  For a tour of the lake points the  s.s. " Aberdeen" has been chartered, and to-day (Thursday) the  party are expected in Kelowna  where preparations are being made  to receive them.  . The party will arrive at Kelowna  about 10.30 a.m. A committee  consisting of Messrs. D. W. Sutherland, A. W. Bowser and P. DuMoulin, has been appointed by the  Board of Trade to meet the visitors  and take them lo see the packing  houses, cannery, Ate.  Among the visitors are a number  of fruit buyers who are specially  interested in studying the Okanagan fruit situation with a view to  getting in touch with our local  dealers, and it ia expected that  considerable benefit will accrue to  Kelowna through this visit. There  will be a reception meeting in Mr.  DeHart'a office, Raymer Block,  just after the arrival of the party.  Protecting Banks of  Mission Creek  Government Wants   Farmers  to Help  Notwithstanding the continued  agitation of the Board of Trade  and other bodies, and the numerous discussions which have taken  place on the subject, it seems as  though the problem of dealing  with the dangerous condition of  the banks ol Mission Creek is as  far from solution as ever.  Most people are by this time  fully aware of the danger which  threatens the district every year  when the spring thawing of the  snow on the hills turns the usually  gentle Mission Creek into a boiling  torrent. There are places along  the banks of the creek where only  the patching up year by year which  has been done by die government  lias sufficed to keep the stream  within bounds and even then the  work has usually been so damaged  by the rush of water that it has had  to be done all over again. This  patching has proved expensive  and of no permanent benefit, and  there has always been the danger  of an unusually high flood, rendering these puny efforts of no effect  at all.  The government has been approached many times with a view  t i undertaking some protective  measures of a niore extensive and  permanent kind, for although thousands of dollar, have already been  spent, the amounts appropriated  ach year have been too small to  do more than a little temporary  cribbing and strengthening to the  weakest places.  ��� The following letter received in  answer to a recent communication  from the Board of Trade will  suffice to show the altitude- of the  government on the subject :���  To the Secretary,  Board of Trade, Kelowna. B.C.  Dear Sir,���Adverting to my letter  of the 27th July, 1 beg to advise  that the Department cannot undertake this work unle s some effort  is made by those interested in making these repairs permanent.  It is considered that there is  nothing lo be gained by continuing  the temporary cribbing and mat-  tresaing which the Department has  been undertaking from time to  time.  Yours obediently,  J. E. GRIFFITH,  Public Works Engineer.  It ia evidently being realized at  headquarters that money spent in  patching is thrown away, or at any  rate is likely to have lo be continued indefinitely.  The condition upon which the  government has promised to - undertake the work is that persons  interested are to pay 50 per cent,  of the cost. But who is to determine who the interested ones are ?  The whole city and district are  interested more or less. The ripar-  ian owners, or those whose land  abutts on to the creek are, with n  few exceptions, high and dry, and  indifferent.  The problem is a knotty one but  a real one, and one wliich must be  met with concerted action, or a  repetition of the floods of three or  four years age might be disastrous.  The wrestling match between  Chief Sutherland and Ed. Toler,  the famous American wrestler, has  been taken in hand by. the Kelow  nn Fire Brigade, and utrangemenls  are in progress to pull off the event  on On Wednesday, November 6th  The match will no doubt be an interesting one, both contestants be  ing of the highest standing in the  sport. "Bob" has a long record  of notable successes both in Can  ada and the Old Country, while  Toler has figured in some of the  most famous bouts over the border.  Presbyterian Church  Anniversary  The second anniversary of the  opening of the Presbyterian church  was celebrated last Sunday and  Monday with special services and  music. Ihe choir augmented for  the occasion and under the able  conductorship of the organist, Mr.  Harold Todd Boyd, made the  musical part of the Sunday services particularly attractive.  Solos were sung as follows :--  morning " Peace and Rest," Miss  Crowcroft. Evening, " I h ard the  Voice of Jesus Say," Mr. Grant  Ferrier; " If with all your hearts,"  Mr. Pedlar.  On Monday an interesting lantern lecture was given by the Rev.  C. O. Main of Vernon, on " A Trip  to the Yukon," some fine views be-  ipg shown.  1 he musical progiam provided  was greatly appreciated, Mirs Pear  son, recently arrived from the Old  Country���and Yoiksliire too, where  good singers are as plei tful as  blackberries���made her first appearance before a Kelowna audience. Her beautiful rendering of  (wo old favorite songs, "The  Promise of Life " and " The Lost  Chord," was plainly enjoyed by the  audience. Mr. Stanley Hodkinson  sang " Beloved, it is "Morn," and  "Arm, Arm ye Brave!" his rich,  poweiful vole? appearing to great  advantage in the latter selection.  Mr. Geo. McKenzie, who has Inst  nfine of his popularity sang "The  Toilers."  Mr. H T. Boyd, in whose hands  the musical arrangements were  placed is lo be congratulated on  tho success of the services.  Aid. Copeland paid a visit to  Penticton I..si weekend.  Aid. Millie is,on His way back  from his visit to the Old Country,  and is expected in Kelowna during  the next few days.  The Rev. Mr. O'Brien, who is to  have charge of the Benvoulin, Rutland and Glenn.ore Presbyterian  circuit arrived Tuesday from  Alberta.  Concert At Ellison  The lecture and concert given  under the auspices of the Literary  Society of Ellison District in aid of  the Kelowna hospital proved a  great success. Although the wea  ther was not of the best the large  turnout were well repaid. Mr.  J. W. Jones held the attention of  all bv his entertaining lecture on  hia travels through Italy, and our  new contralto singer Mrs. G. Whit-  aker charmed all with her sweet  voice and expression, while Miss  Cottingham needs only to be heard  to be recognized as a first-class  pianist. Mr. G. McKenzie, the  popular soloist, was at his best in  both his Irish' and Scotch songs,  captivating the hearts of all who  listened to him.  The neat sum of $16.2$ wm  realized, to be handed in to the  hospital.  Prize Winnings  at Westminster  Kelowna Fruit Takes Bulk of  Box Prizes  The gratifying result of the Farm  era' Exchange exhibit which was  sent to New Westminster shows  once again how easily can Kelowna fruit win out when placed in  competition with other districts.  Out of 13 classes in boxed apples  the exchange won 10 firsts, 9 seconds and 10 thirds, truly a respct-  able sweep of the board. The total prize money won was $665.50.  The plate classes were taken in  hand by the A. & T. Association  with fruit selected from the Fall  Fair, but to date it has been impossible to get a list of the piize  winners. The winnings were 45  firsts, 37 seconds and 19 thirds, the  prize money amounting to $190.  Following is a list of prizes in  the Farmer's Exchange exhibit.

Immigration Figures Soaring  During the six months, April Ist  to October Ist, of the current fiscol  year, 273,649 immigrants arrived  in Camilla. Of this number 183,-  990 arrived at ocean ports and  89,659 from the United States.  These figures ahow an increase of  I 3 per cent., as compared wilh the  number of arrivals for the corresponding months of the last fiscal  year which were 158,614 at ocean  ports and 83,317 from the United  States, making a total for the six  months, April Ist to October Ist,  1911, of 241,931.  D,uring the month of September  this year there were 31,140 arrivals  20,990 arriving at ocean ports and  10,450 from the United States as  against 35,077 for September last  year, 17,594 of whom were at ocean  ports and 17,484 from the United  States. The immigraiii n into Can-  ads during the last halt year is considerably greater than the poulation  of Montenegro, the country which  a few days ago declared war  against Turkey. The electoral district of Carleton, Ont., has, according to the census of 1911, a population of 28,406. It will be seen  that the immigration during the  paat six months is more than equivalent to the population of nine  such districts.  Supposing that nil the immigrants  who arrived during the last six  months were in line of march, one  pace apart Indian file, the procession would reach from Toronto to  Kingston, more than one hundied  and fifty miles.  Eggs Dollar a Dozen  Eggs this winter may reach $1  per dozen according to the opinion  of Mr. J. S. Terry, provincial poultry instructor. He points out that  the season has been an abnormally  bad one in the east, where there is  a 40 per cent, shortage in chickens,  and practically no reserve of eggs  in cold storage. This was caused  by the cold weather through April  and May, which prevented any  satiafactory results from hatching  previous to June.

By the death of W. Clark RuesgII  we lose one of the flneBt writers of  sea-stories that this century ever possessed. His romances throb with  such vitality that It Is hnrd to realize  that for many year their author had  been virtually a cripple. Yet such  was tbe owe, and his latest, works  were dlotated to his son while he  himself was stretched on a couch of  rain.  What wondrous results can be ef-  reoted by strength of will the lire of  Herbert Spencor pre-eminently shows.  Of delicate constitution, he set hlm-  solf to accomplish a task the magnitude wheroof would have appalled  the most robust, and wrestling manfully with the demon of Ill-health,  which sometimes for months together  totally Incapacitated him from work,  never wavered In his stem resolve  until, In 189G, he brought his stupendous "System of Synthetic Philosophy" to a triumphant conclusion.  His fellow-worker In the field of  evolution, Charles 'Darwin, for over  forty years knew not the Joy of a  day without pain. Dyspepsia, allied  maybe to gout, held him In thraldom,  so that his life was one long and continuous struggle against illness. Yet  he bore his unenviable lot with cheery  patience, and, though his poor health  al times compelled him to cease from  his arduous studies and researches,  tlie work that he left accomplished is  proof sufficient that no physical Ills  could subdue the indomitable energy  ot his mind.  in puin aud lorlure, too, lay Tom  llouil when lie penned some of his  must humorous versos. Even In boyhood his health was delicate, and with  increasing years his weakness became more alarmingly apparent Yet  he giiiliinily struggled on until, In the  winter of 1844, he Finally uruke down  and look lo his bed.

At the present  time, for Instance, the compilers of  the great Oxford English Dictionary  ���re deriving much help ln their work  trom a Concordance of the words of  Hhomau Kyd, a learned literary man  and dramatist of the sixteenth century, whdtih has been compiled hy M r.

Although  1 Mackintosh    waa   a   shoemaker   hy  trade, he waa oue of the most notable  personalities that the North Country  has of recent times produced,' und hia  "History of ClvlHratlon In Scotland,"  1 ln  four  big volumes,  has  been de-  f scribed as one ot the most complete  [ histories of Scotland ever written.  Chimney  Sweep noil  Anther.  It is only a few  weeks  ago  that  I the  University  Extension   Board  appointed Mr. Waller Hunt lecturer on  I sociology. Mr. Hunt has had an amazing  career.    He   started   life   as   a  [ sailor, spent some time In  the flro  brigade.and then set up as a chimney  Bweep at Strcatham.   He then decided  | to attend the Rofceri Browning SetHc-  ment in Walworth, and In  time was  led to write a thoughtful  little hook  wherein   he   discusses   the   question',  "Are we a declining race?" which attracted much attenili.il among critics,  Mr.   Hunt's   successful   wrlitlngs   on  race deterioration, Involving as Ihey  did an immense amount of research  work, are the more remarkable when  one considers that his callng look him  out at  four o'clock In the morning.  Most or his study was done at night  time, nnd he confided in an Interview  a little while ago thai he found no  time to read .anything bul works on  Bcleuce and history. "Life Is loo short  to waste time In rending fiction," he  said. t-  It might he mentioned that Ixiudun  also possessesMi linguistic tramway.  man in the person of Mr. Richard  Hohdcll, of London, who Is employed  by the London County Council as a  pointsman cu tlie car system. Mr.  Hobdell has a perfect knowledge of  Arabic and Sanskrit, and has just  finished translating a hook from  Sanskrit Into English. Hobdell, who  waa wltrh t/ord Roberts on the famous  march from Kabul to Kandahar, has  devoted much of his leisure time since  leaving the Army to lhe study of languages ��� a study of which he has always been very fond.  The literary sensation of last year  was a book, "Murle Claire," written  by a Parisian seamstress, Murguerlto  Audoux, who worked as a dressmaker  In one small room on the sixth floor  of a house iu Purlin The slory won a  prize of $1000 and royalties ��� a prize  given every year by whal Is know as  the Goncntirt Academy for the best  novel of the year.

A  The Case of  the   Fox la n  Curious  Contradiction  ���  He Exists  Solely hy lleuson of  I'elM'i'iitli.n.  Tlie position of the fox Is a eurloua  oue ��� he exists sololy-hy reason of  porsecutlon. Once let huiiiunitHrlans  step In and put an end to the cruel  treatment the fox receives und he  must cease to exist.  At present a huge sum Is spent  every year for the apparent purpose  of exterminating canls vulpes, yet an  outcry Is raised It a slugle death save  by orthodox means occurs. A fox la  "vermin," yet he Is more carefully  protected than most game, and, save  In the hunting season, his person Is  sacred.  True the naturalist, Interested In  one of the last wild heasls existing  In England, tries lo make out us good  a case for him as he can. He points  out With perfect truth thai foxes kill  rats, when they come across tliem,  and that they eai worms and beetles  upon occasion.  Should the gamekeeper he forced to  admit this he will promplly give a  further list of more dainty fare to  which the fox has a leaning, while Hhe  poultry fancier will have a tale to  lell of thousands of really valuable  birds which foxes have accounted for.  The culprit's champion may say that  such birds should have been better  protected, but If he does lie will only  bring down further wrath, since, alas,  It Is solely to protect his birds from  foxes that many a fancier has to  spend money he can 141 afford.  Farmers have also a good deal to  ���ay on the subject, for It la not an  uncommon thing for young lambs to  be taken by these pests, while In the  West of Ireland pony foals are occasionally pulled down by uhem.  A Peep at the Hulls and Hears and  Meaning of Shorts and Profits  and Settling Hay  Accounts.  In "boom" times newspapers tell us  that "Bulls" are having It all their  own way. In bad times It appears  that tHe "Bears" are getting an  Innings. What, thon, are "Bulls" and  "Boars." ,.;  Let us first glance at the customers  to the Stock Exchange. There Is the  genuine Investor, who is content with  anything up to i'/, per cent, and  sound security. Next comes a little  more difficult man to satisfy. For  he wants 5 per cent, on his money  and a chance of capital appreciation  in his stock or share. Lastly ��� and  this is the client we sre dealing with  more particularly ��� there Is the  speculator who swarms ln the mining,  rubber, and oil share markets ln  active times. He pays but little regard to any of tbe questions that are  all important to the other two classes.  The speculator delights In possibilities, probabilities, rumours, prospects,  In fact all the varied Ingredients thut  go to make an appetising meal for a  healthy, robust "Bull."  A Peep at the "Hulls" and "Bears"  A "Bull" Is a speculator "for the  rlso," a purchaser who hopes to Bell  at a profit, If possible before the  settling day comes round, aud not one'  who Intends to take the shares oft  the market. He Is known aa a "stale  bull," when after waiting wearily for  the rise that never seems to come he  sells in disgust. The "Bear" Ib the  speculator who comes along when he  thinks money can be made by Belling;  he fattens, of course, on the- stale  bull. When a successful "Bull" sells  he differs from the "Hear" in that  he tukes his profits or cuts his losses,  whereas the "Bear" Is only Just  setting out to make them. Thus a  "Rull" taking his profits does ao hy  selling at a higher price what he  bought at a lower one. Tbe "Bear"  sells not because he has shares In h's  possession upon which he desires to  realise a profit, hut because he thinks  he can sell you or me some shares  now at, say, $16, which before setting  day he can go Into the market and  secure at, say, $10; the difference  between his selling and buying price  is his profit. In effect he hus sold us  something at $15 which he has bought  ut $10. But he sold U first taking  the rlak of "coloring" himself at a  lower price' before he Is called upon  to settle up. Settling days on the  Stock Exchange come round every  fortnight, when everybody, Investors,  speculators, "Hulls" and "Bears,"  settle their transactions.  1VM SECRETS  Every Worl.man Employed on ��� Hew  H'ursiiiji i lis to Take An Oath  That  Be Will Rereal  Nothing He Sees.  The recent appointment of Mr.,  Winston Churchill to be head of the  Admiralty recalls tbe fact that there  Is no more Jealously-guarded depart-'  ment than that over which he now  holds Bway. The head of the Navy  Is the most reticent man ln the Cabinet ��� when question time comes  round. Whenever an answer la given  you may be quite sure that It doesn't  give very much away.  All new ships are built with the  greatest possible secrecy. To begin  with, overy man who is employed, ln  whatever capacity, on a .,ew worfhlp  has to take an oath that he will never  reveal anything he may learn.- No  outsider is allowed anywhere near the  building yards. When the first Dreadnought was being built, for Instance,  the great vessel was guarded ao  Jealously that no one, save those actually employed on her, were allowed  within forty yards. To show how  strictly this order war carried out,  two pout-captains of the Navy, ln uniform, were turned back by the police  and private detectives on guard.  The actual plana 0f a new battle-  fchlp are the most carefully guarded  of all the Admiralty's secrets. They  are kept ln rooms which rival any  strong-rooms of a bank. The  draughtsmen never have the whole  plaus In their possession. Parts are  given out nt a time to different men,  nnd every draughtsman Is carefully  watched 1n order that he can take no  copy of the part of the plan In front  of him. So well are the complete  plans divided up that even If three  or four men agreed to act together  Ihey would be unable to find out  much about Britain's latest Dreadnought. Whenever any portion of the  plans goes out of the strong-room  Its movements are as carefully watched and checked as those of the keys  of Che room  When the German Emperor visited  Gibraltar a few years ago the greatest precautions were quietly taken, In  the politest possible way, to prevent  members of the Kaiser's suite seeing  too much. Sentries were placed at  an sorts of odd corners on board all  the men-of-war. Every part of the  vessels was carefully guarded, and  more than one German officer who  bud wandered" below was politely  shown the way up to deck again.  WHY  CHILDREN  ASK QUESTIONS  Oue   of   the    dc.-l   Interesting   and  Valuable  of Our  Ins (nets  la  Curiosity und This Keeling  of Wonder Is a Worthy  Fact About Human  Race.  The whole Qf the doing part of our  nature depends, In -the first place,  upon a most iniportaui fact of our  nature, which is that we possess Instincts. All tilde Instincts exist in  order to serve our lives in one way  or another, and their special business  Is to urge ua to action. When we  thus act under the Influence of an Instinct we commonly have a certain  kind of feeling or emotion, which corresponds with the Insiluel that Is at  work.  One of the most Interesting and  valuable of our Instincts Is curiosity.  In the history of the long lino of beings who have produced us. curiosity  is a high Instinct and one that Is late  in appearing. We do not fiud It  among Che lowest animals, hut It Is  conspicuous In the highest kinds of  monkeys.  The particular kind of feeling or,  emotion that goes with lhe Instinct  of curiosity Is what we call wonder.  Thus, when we ask a quesLon of ourselves, we often say: "1 wonder why"  so-and-so. And this Inatlnot grows,  as mankind grow.!, from the most  trivial curiosity about trivial things  until It leads men to devote tholr  whole lives to llio discovery of the  lawa and wonders of Nature.  Children, therefore, ask questions  because they are human, and becaUBc  the possession of the Instinct of curiosity and the feeling of wonder is  a very great and worthy fact about  the human race. Without It we  should not be driven ou to learn and  to know, and without knowing our  place lu the world would not be nearly bo safe as It Is. Ths trouble Is  thai so many of us stop asking questions whan we grow up.  PIMMS TO MECCA  Of All the .Millions Who Visit Mecca  Nol ii Score of Christians are  Known lo Come Out of the  Sncre.1 Cily Alive.  Although one of the most Inaccessible cities ou earth, Mecca each year  has visitors In such number that it  must he ranked In this particular  with Ixindou and New York. Even  the" world's metropolis on the Thames  can boast no such cosmopolitan char-  niler as Is Imparted to this mysterious  city lu the wilderness of Arabia by  the myriads of pilgrims, who at the  cost of incredible puius annually  crowd Into Its confines. This city la  the oldest place of reBort ln existence,  yet of all the millions who have  visited It not u scoro'of Christians are  known to have come out alive. No  flag of rilizenahtp would save a man's  life were he known to be a Christian  within the sacred precincts of the  city, where the Prophet himself decreed that no unbeliever should set  root. Of the 226,000,000 Moslems In  the world only ,15,6U0,0U0 live under  tho Turkish flag, yet most of them  acknowledge the Sultan of Turkey as  their cnllph, the successor of the Prophet. As Mohammed snrewdly foresaw, lhe Mecca pilgrimage binds to-  felher his disciples luto a unity wliich  could be effected In no other way.  "Mecca," says Dr. Samuel M. Zwemer,  of Arabia, "has become the religious  capital and the centre of universal  pilgrimage for one-seventh of the  human race."  Jumping Jack Tars  The rhythmic Jumping of three  hundred and fifty bluejackets saved  H. M. S. Commonwealth from tho  fate of the Montagus when she ran  aground In a dangerous place.  The battleship Montague was abandoned as a hopeless wreck off the  Cornish const, hut her sister ship, the  Commonwealth, wns safely got off by  the muscular exertion of her crew.  The Commonwealth ran on to an  uncharted rock when returning from  target practice, and was badly  damaged. She wus so nicely halaneod  In her lodgment, however, thut It was  decided, after reversing the engines  had fulled to extricate her, to try the  experiment of mustering all the  available bands on the extreme aft,  and setting Ihem to Jump In unison.  The regular Jumping of twenty-five  tons of solidly-built seamen had the  effect of miking the huge vessel rook  ���ea-iaw fashion until she graduslly  floated off with the rlslnfj tide. Iu  fifteen minutes sho was afloat, and  saved.  A Time of Change.

It Is strange that the first thread  made In Scotland had a tragic connection wth Paisley, for not far from  whore the Kergusllc Thread Mills now  ��iiin7r~��tx persons ��� two men and  four women ��� were burnt to death  In 1C97 for the alleged crime of  having bewitched Christian Shsw,  the oldest daughter of the laird of  Bargarrah, a small estate In the  neighborhood, when she was a Child  or eleven years of age. She was  married to a minister, and on his  death returned to her father's house.  She was a great adept at the spln-  nlng-wheel, and as she kept spinning  the fine linen yarn, such aa was used  In Paisley for the making of lawns,  It occurred to her that It might be  twisted Into thread unliable for the  sewing or embroidering needle. As  all tho thread used for this purpose  came at that time from Holland, she  rommleaiohed a friend who was going  over there to purchase for her a twisting mill. On getting it she nt once  proceeded with her thread-making.  performing evory part of Ihe process  with her own hand. The mill she hud  was small, and ran only twelve hob-  bins at a time. * A fine thread, equal  ��� and, aa aome thought, superior ���  to the Dutch, was produced, and when  speclmene of It were taken to Bath  by Lady Blantyre, a near neighbour  of the family, the makers of lace there  at once saw Its value. Tims a trade  In "Bargarran thread" sprung up In  1722. Although cotton has since then  largely superseded linen thread, yet  this Renfrewshire lady Is fairly entitled to the honour of being the originator of lha industry that has made  Paialty.

KuiniiiiliY Origin of Some Well Known  Moiigs ��� Hon "lillliiiiiry" nnd  "llie Star Spangled Banner"  Were Composed,  Comiiosers tell niauy n curious and  romantic story of the birth of songs  wfhitah Oiave become world-ruinous;  and fow of thorn are-ii'ore remarkable Uiiiu those told by Sgnor Tito  Mattel.  "Several of my best songs," lie  suys, "have come to my mind whilst  Idly strumming with my fingers on u  window-pane or table; ami my well-  known 'Hear the Wild Winds Blow  was writimi when I was baring an  oyster supper."  "Dear Heart" had an equally ou-  rloiis origin. Ono night when tlie  S!gnor went to boo his publisher, Mr.  Keppel, the latter produced a sheet  of paper, saying, "Hore are some  pretty words; what do you think of  I hum?" Th* composer glanced st (he  manuscript and, walking to -the piano,  Instantly played the four last line of  the sir which has since been sung all  the world over. The same etvenlng  llie Bong waa complete, and the following morning Mr. Keppel and (he  glgnor were drinking to Its success  In "repeated  glasses of champagne."  The sweel and universally popuflnr  "In Old Madrid" came to Mr. H. Tro-  tere one evening as he was resuming  home from the Theatre. He hod no  paper on which to Jot It down, nor  had the publican into whose house  he rushed any to offer him. But,  catching sight of some blscult-bags,  In.' seized one, and in a few moments  the famous melody was written down.  "Ho' to Sea" was composed within  ii quarter of an hour was Jotted down  "A^thore" was written by Mr. Clifton  Bingham and set to music by Mr.  Trotere after lunching at Hestaurairt:  nu I "The Brow of Hie Hill" eclipsed  even these marvellous records, for  Mr. Trotfere eomjiospd the melody,  wrote a letter, and ran 400 yards to  catch the posl, all within eight  minutes]  Of "KMluruey" a strange story is  le'd. One day Boiieleault took the  words of the soug to Balfe. Mrs.  HullV took them upstairs lo her husband, who, after glancing through  them, sal down to tho piano. Scarcely  had his wife left the room when the  composer excitedly called her back.  "I have done the song," he xclalmed.  "II ia sweet. Tell Boucicuu.: to come  and hear It."  It was while dreaming the Until  away In his yacht, thai Michael May-  brick's great song, "The Holy City,"  came to him In n flood of Inspiration.  Hastily wrting down the voice pari,  he called his slster-ln-law, Mri.  Florence Maybrlck, to the cabin ami  asked her to sing It while he extemporised an uccompauluieut; and within half an hour of reading Mr.  Woatherle.v's words lhe glorious song  was suiig by the woman who, but  little lator, wns to make ttc world  ring wilh her nn.pie.  In the war of 181:; Francis Scott  ey wrote "The Star-Spangled Banner"  on seeing the flag floating over Fori  Mclleury. When he returned to Wf  division, we are lold, he read It aloud  once, twice, three times, until the  entire division seemed electrified hy  ita pathetic eloquence. An idea seized  Ferdinand Durung. Hunting up a  volume of flute music, he Impatiently  whistled snatches of tune after tune  as they caught his eye. Note otter  note fell from his puckered lips until.  with a leap and a shout, he exclaimed,  "Boys, I've got it!" and there rang  out for the first lime the song of  "The Star-Spangled Banner."  P.

This discovery has  been made by a writer who suggests  that as, In most cases, birds breed as  a matter of course In their second  season, writers have assumed that  there le nothing to be said on the  subject  Or. Seth Smith, who Is in charge  of the birds at the Zoological Gardens,  Ijondon, says that in all probability  many of the parrots do not breed nil  Ihey are three or four years old ���  that Is U) say, till their fourth or  fifth season. Geese, however, according lo the. same authority, are an exception to tills generalization, as, in  common with sheldrakes and some of  lhe pheasants, they breed III their  second season. I'nsslbly, as regards  geese, this applies only to domesticated breeds.

New Intention Far Forcing Ws'er Oat  of u Ship by Compressed Air,  Permitting the Holes to be  Repaired from Within.  If ill that Is claluiwl for the Idea  proves correct there will be a .uvo-  Jutton In the work of ship-string lo  the near future. Indeed, It promises  %o revolutionise naval warfare, for W  Is claimed for thin new Invention that  sMpt oan be kept afloat even alter  being rammed. In'ract, they can be  made practically unshakable. The invention ie the outcome of an idea for  foretold water out of a ship by com-  preaeed air, thus permitting the holes  to bt repaired from wltihln. Tbe Idea  li a very simple one, and waa so(-  (ssttd to Comirauder Marsh, of the  batUeabip North Carolina, lying off  New York, by Mr. Wltherapoon, tbe  eafmeer engaged In the conatruction  of the New York railway tubes under  the Hudson River.  All ths experiments tried proved  entlraly successful. Tbe sea-cocks  were opened on the Carolina and  water was permitted to fill one of the  wetertght compartments. Compressed  air at a pressure of twelve pounds to  the square Inch was then forced Into  the compartment through a email  opening. In ten minutes ailltbe waiter  was driven back into tlie river. Simultaneously with the twelve-pound  pressure Into the waterlogged com-  ipartment oomrpres/ied air at seven  pounds pressure was driven Into all  the surrounding compartments and a  three-pound pressure Into the next  aeries of compartment*, this being  necessary to prevent the pressure on  the original compartment buckling  tbe sides and the dock.  Commander Marsh Is most enthusiastic regarding the , Idea. He  points out that tlie Invention now  enables them to do repairs to the  hull below water-line Irom the inside, either after collision or during  a naval battle. "Ships," he says, "aro  now for the firat time practlaelly un-  slnkable, for the water-tight coiu-  paitmeiMs alone will not keep a ship  afloat Indefinitely. There is always  a leak somewhere All that Is necessary," he continues, "Is to Install a  system of pipes and gauges and attach them to the compressed air plant.  Every warship already has such n  plant for the purpose of blowing off  poisonous anil explosive gases, which  can he utilized for driving out the  water The whole coat for a battleship Is ahum Jwu.

Fruit Inspection Service   c   During the past summer the fruit  inspection service of the Department of agriculture has been extended and completely reorganized  by Hon. Martin Burrell, The result haa been seen this fall in the  most efficient, fruit inspection Canada has ever had. At the last Dominion Fruit Grow, rj'conference  great stress was laid on the importance of (lie proper grading and  m rking of fruit and the need for  more extruded insp -ction, esp"<-  ially at points uf shipment, and oi  fruit coming in from the United  Sta ei. As far as poisible lhe id is  ol lhe fruil growers have I eaii followed in the re i r.{m>iz uion.  The country has been divided  iulo five inspectoral dittti-ts aa follows I Maritime Provinces, Quebec and Eastern Ontario, Western  O itnrio, Prairie Provinces and Bril-  i.h Cluinliin. In addition to the  five chief inspectors fifteen temporary inspectors nave been added  to the staff.  In the past Canadian export fruit  has been closely inspected, with  lhe result that Dominion fruit stands  high in the marl/els of Great Britain  and Europe. Despite coutinua  requeata for belt, r domestic inspection, Ho.\ Sydney Fisher neglected  to improve the arrangements for  inspection for domestic consumption. The local buyer both in the  east and west haa thus been at the  mercy   of   unscrupulous   dealers.  The change which Mr. Burrell  has effected has given the domes-  lie market almost as close inspection as is given in the case of export fruit.

A Hindu's Penance  An extraordinary acene waa witnessed in Calcutta recently, aays  the Central News, when a small  trolly, studded with rowa of iron  spikes, on which a Hindu was lying at full length, was being pulled  through the streets. A large crowd  was following. Inquiries elided  the information that the man was  D.iing penance, and was on his  wav to lhe temple of the goddess  Kali at Kalignt.  Th; Hindu had been aeveral  days on the journey and was in a  t rr.ble condiion. The spikes,  which numbered about one hundred and fifty, were quite sharp, and  the man Wore only a loin cloth.  He muat have.been suffering acute  pain from the fact that the body  was bruised and lacerated all over  as a result of lying on   lhe  sharp  iIs.

HONE 19  Benvoulin Notes  A surprise parly visited the house  of Mr. McEachern on Monday  night for the purpose of carrying  their good wishes to Mr. and Mrs.  McEachern on the eve of their  departure to take up their residence at the coast. The party consisted of members and adherents  of the Presbyterian church with  which the McEachern family has  been connected for many years.  During the course of the evening  Mr. A. Scott in a few remarks  referred to the great loss the congregation was about to sustain in  the departure of Mr. and Mrs.  McEachern. They had been valuable members and hnd taken  great interest in the work of the  church, Mr. McEachern being specially interested in the Sunday-  school of which for some years he  had been superintendent; and  Mrs. McEachern in the Women's  Aid.  The congregation was losing at  this time quite a number of supporters, among these being Mr.  and Mra. Cowan, who are also  going to the coast, and Mr. and  Mrs. Dolsen, who, however, intend returning in the spring.  They wished Mr. and Mrs. McEachern and their family all happiness and success, and they would  not forget the great influence for  good they had exercised in their  midst.  Mr. McEachern feelingly replied  and stated that it was with much  regret he and Mrs. McEachern  were leaving their Benvoulin ciicle  of friends. It seemed, however,  that it was the right thing for them  to do, tluugh when the time for  parting came they could wish that  it wasn't necessary. It had been a  great pleasure to take part in the  work of the church and they felt  the separation very much. They  had met with great kindness and  neither he nor Mrs. McEachern  would forget Benvoulin.  On the conclusion of Mr. Mc-  Eachern's remarks the company  rose and sang " Blest Be the Tie  That Binds."  The evening was pleasantly  passed with singing, readings and  games, whilst a service of cake  was provided by the Ladies' Aid.  The party was organized under  the leadership of Mrs. Squair and  Mrs. McLean and waa completely  auccessful.  During the evening Mr. Lister,  the missionary temporarily in  charge, recited the following original con'rihution:���  TO MR. AND MRS. McEACHERN  AND FAMILY  We're met the nicht. oor herta ar* sair,  For frien'a are sune tae leave ua :  An* pairtin' haa ita panga, I'm ahair,  An' can dae noucht but grieve ua.

You have also heard  that Tea will ruin your  nerves; that cocoa plays  havoc with your kidneys :  that milk makes you bilious ; and lhat waler is full  of poisonous germs. If  this is so and a person is  temperate, they must of  necessity die for want of  something to drink, or  take chances on some one  of them.  You Take  No Chances  if you use ourfresh ground  Java and Mocha at 50c,  per pound. Some ask for  chicory to be put in it,  others like just the straight  coffee. We recomment it  as it is.
