WONDERFUL SNAPSHOT OF THE VERMONT IN A STORM  Thin pioture was taken by a sailor on one of the vessels convoying. the  damaged warship alter she broke her shaft at sea in a gale and had to be  towed to Norfolk, Va. It shows the stupendous force of the waves even  where a 16,000 ton battleship is concerned.  The ship will' be placed in dry dock for repairs and it will be some time  before the real extent of her damage has been ascertained. Several of her  cpmpartments were flooded, but the others remained intact. At the time of  the accident the Vermont was returning with the other American battleships  that   visited    Italy and the south of France.  Armoury aDd Drill Hall   |*y Form Basket Ball Team  A movement is on foot for the formation of a basketball team.in the  city. There are two or three good  men available and no doubt many others are in the city who an familiar  with the great indoor game. Arrangements can be made with the management of the local roller rink for practices and nights for games can also be  iirranged, if material enough for a  good team can be gathered together.  Basketball is a splendid game during  the winter month* and the toiler rink  provides a beautiful floor and ample  room for the game, also room to ao-  i.-r7*eet!ngd ui*'eiouti've"of the '<>����"x>date large number, who jrish to  Conaxrvative Ae*��i.tion held Decern-1 w,tn���� ��"��"���    *" ">t*��l*�� �� this  The fact that last Friday's council  meeting happened the day after Chriet-  ' mas did not prevent a full attendance,  | although 9��e member turned up   sus-  'pioiously late.   '"'  The term of the present oouncil is  nearly at an end and the business consisted chiefly of routine matters and  the winding up of affairs for the year.  A formal resolution, fixing the date  of nomination of candidates for mayor  aldermen and school1 trustees was passed. Nomination day will be Monday  January 12th, between 12 o'oloov/noon  and 2 p.m., and the poll if required  will take place on the Thursday, three  days later.  A letter was read from the secretary  of the Hospital Society asking for a  cheque cavering the city's grant to  that institution. The letter was handed  to the 'finance committee.  Mr. W. D'Aeth waited on the council respecting the lease to him for  four months of, the city wharf, a copy  of which lease was submitted by the  city solicitors, Messrs. < Burne & Tem-  i pie.  | A report was received from the Union of B. C. Municipalities respecting  the work which bad been done by that  body during the past year, and   also  Alderman   Coeens asked if anything  Now Assured  IMPORTANT LETTER FROM MINISTER OF MILITIA  kelowna is now assured the ouich-  talltcd-ol new armory and drill hall  for the use of the B.

C. Horse, also a company of the One  Hundred and,Second Rifles are stationed here, and we have an assurance  that the city will grant a free site  suitable for the ereotion of -a complete  armory. Be it resolved that we urgently request the Minister of Militia  to place a sum in the estimates ior  a building of sufficient size for above  unite."  This resolution was telegraphed to  Hon. Sam Hughes, minister of militia  and the following reply has been received by the secretary of the association:  v Ottawa, Dec. 18, 1908.  Dear Mr. Morrison,  Let me thank you for your kind  telegram, relative to Kelowna, B. 0.  The name of your town is on the  list for a drill hall, and we hoped to  be able to erect one this year. However we will do our best to have one  completed there next year, at the  latest, as I fully realise the requirements of a drill hall at this point.  Wishing you and yours, and the assb\  ciation of which you are secretary the  compliments of the season.  Faithfully   <  SAM HUGHES.  No information is yet to hand a* to  the kind of building to .be provided  but it is understood that H will be  a much, superior structure to' those  which have been provided in many  plaees in B. 0.  The oity council has already under  consideration the submitting of a by-  -Op     oa su&od JO] C|doed   air) of *��(  nato to the government a site in the  oity park It is proposed that this  would be on Abbott street at the  extreme corner near the bridge. As  this is public property it is necessary  first to get tho sanction of the eleotors  bofore it can be turned over to the  government.  great.Indoor sport are requested to  attend a meeting in the Casorso bocck  tomorrow (New Years) at 1.30 o'clock  in the afternoon.  Councillor R. Conklin, chairman of  Penticton's light and water committee  Is in the running for mayor !n that  city this year.  POULTRY ASSOCIATION WILL  MEET ON TUESDAY NEXT  A meeting of the Poultry Association  will be held on Tuesday evening, January 6th, 1914 in the Sons of England room, Keller block, at 7.30 to  pay out prize money and map out a  program for the coming year. A delegate will also be appointed to attend  the annual meeting of the Vernon Foul  try Association to make arrangements  for the provincial poultry show to be  held there next December. Local breed  era must get busy and show the coast  breeders what we can do in the Okan-  agan. With the splendid stock here  and at Penticton, Summerland and  Vernon, we should have the best provincial show yet held. All interested  in poultry are invited to attend. There  is no slump in the poultry business.  Prospects are good for a successful  year.  .stating that  the Union had again se-  , cured the services as solicitor of   Mr.  jMcDiarmid, of Victoria, at a slightly  increased salary.  The assessment against tho Kclowna  council for this and other expenses dur  inn 1914 would be 130. Tho payment  of this wa^ Ifeft over for the incoming  council.  Mr. J. It. Whitehead, of the pool  room appeared before the council and  indignantly protested against the act-  'ion of the chief constable, who had  come into his place on Christinas eve  at 25 minutes to 12 and ordered all  games 'to stop und the place to be  dosed up.     He know of courBe     that  1 the by-law required a pool room to  be closed at 11.30 but he thought that  the same liberty should be given     to  'him as was given to the rest of the  stores. It was a common practice for  the stores to keep open some time after six o'clock, but the police would'nt  think of entering a store if customers  were being served after six o'clock. He  thought too, that the enormous licence he was compelled to pay should  entitle him to some little consideration.  The resolution read at a former meeting from the Armstrong council in  reference to the exemption from taxation of lands held by the C.N.I}., was  discussed, and although It was felt  that such indiscriminate exemption  worked a hardship on tho various mu.  nicipatities, the resolution did not  seem to fit exactly the local case, and  it was thought better to notify the  solicitor of the Union of IV C. Municipalities in ornVr that he could watch  for any possible application for time  extension in the interests of, the oity.  REMAINS OF BERT MoCLURE LAID  AT BEST  The death took place on Monday last  of Bert McClure, at the age of 86.  Deceased has been subject to tuberculosis troubles for some years past, and  of late has.been failing rapidly. His  family Were amongst tne old-timers of  the district, having resided here for  over twenty years. The funeral took  place on Tuesday. Mr. McClure leaves,  besides his wife, five young children to  mourn his death.  The management of tho ice rink  are working- diligently to get a sh��t  of ice at tho tennis courts on T'li  avenue. The weather man has not  been overly generous in handing cut  suitable Weather for this sort of tport.  However, -the bottom is now well  i formed and only a couple sharp nights  lis needed to produce a good sheet of  Ice.  was being done in the matter of  curing the irrigation water record in  the interests of the water users of the  city. He thought it would be a  shame to let it lapse, and he bad met  one user who was willing to pay the  whole amount of the fees required in  order to secure it.  The statement made at a. previous  meeting was repeated that the city  would see to the securing of the record if the water users themselves  would get together and put up the  thirty odd dollars which wore required  as fees. If this "blanket record" were  not secured by the oity individual users would have to go through all the  legal forms of application for their  own records.

R.  '     COMPLETUD'  Tho last spiko on tho eastern division  of tho Canadian Northern railroad on  tho section between Port Arthur and  Sudbury, which makes the road practically a transcontinental one, was  driven Tuesday. The oeromony took  place at a point 255 miles oast of Port  Arthur and the hummer was swung  by Sir William Mackenzie, president of  the road, who is leaving Toronto for  a trip of inspection over the road. This  trip will also be notable as tho first  in which Bir William has travelled  from Toronto and Port Arthur and  the west, entirely over his own line.  Tho spiko, which was used on this  occasion was of gold with only sufficient alloy to make it hard onaugh to  serve the purpose.   o- -  New Year's addresses will be given  by the pastor in the Methodist church  on Sabbath.

ANNUAL CHRISTMAS TREE ENTERTAINMENT  The Christmas tree entectainment of  the Mount View Methodist Sunday  school was held on Tuesday evening  last, and was very much enjoyed; by all  who were present.  It consisted of choruses, dialogues,  and finished up with the appearance of  Santa C.wua, who came down the  chimney and through the fire place  just at the opportune moment drag-  ing an immense .basket of toys and  presents for the children. Just as he  was about to hang them on the tree,  he noticed some children watching him  and quickly disappeared back into the  chimney, leaving, the presents behind.  Every item on, the program was given entirely by the small children and  rendered perfectly, although one little  fellow was troubled with an attack  of stage fright.  The drills wen- very good indeed, and  reflect great credit,' "both on the children who took part and on those who  had the responsibility of their training.  The little ones, in: the J aponese drill,  each with sash and fan, and flowers in  their hair made a vcrv ni-etty pioture.  The bigger children in the tennis drill,  boys and girls, all dressed in white,  with rod sashes and ties certainly deserved the encoro they received.  The following ladies composed the  committee who had charge: Miss Ruby  Hunter, Ida. Fleming, Annie Cay, and  Mrs. Willis Scholl, at the organ. The  program was as follows:  Hymn.���"The Cospel   Bells    are ring-  >ng.  Prayer   by Mr. Vanoo.  Chorus.-"Wherc Santa  Plans Dwells"  By the school.

Bitch  JOHN CURTS  Wltt��*CTC**folU��t  In municipal affairs the past year  has been a most trying one,.not only  for Kelowna, but for scores of other  young and growing cities of the west.  The almost disastrous slump which for  some months past has fallen upon the  money market, making municipal bonds  almost a drug oa the market, has lam  like a wet blanket on municipal enterprise and development. That this  stringency is tho perfectly natural result oi certain well-defined cauees may  be quite true��� financial experts arc  busy telling ui so almost every day  ���but it is mighty inconvenient and is  causing many a municipal council to  wear a worried look. Few cities are  in so fortunate a position that they  can depend uaoa current revenue to  provide funds for their natural expansion and certainly not in the newer communities, whose institutions and public  utilities are aU in the making. More  money i Hon money I is the cry from  all sides, and the demand for loans  throughout western Canada ana of late  years grown to almost unbelievable  Iproportions. Up to a short time ago  the response has been prompt, and capital has beea pouring into the country in a steady stream.  "Toe amount of this capital is so  great" says Sh- George Peish, one oi  the editors of the London .Statist, who  has been addressing Canadian Chtbe.  and other bodies in the east lot the  paat ton 4mys, "that very few people  realize or appreciate it. The mother  country In recent years has provided  Canada with the nam of no less than  called unon to give so much personal  attention to the details of city work  as to Involve a verjr serious tax upon  the time of a man who most likely  has his own business to attend to,  And when these ordinary worries are  complicated by financial troubles of  so serious a nature as to threaten to  interfere with the regular routine of  city business, the position is by no  means an enviable one. It is all very  woll to be an alderman when municipal skies are blue and money is plentiful and cheap, and everything goes  merrily, while the people look on and  cheer. But when financial clouds are  heavy, and the council is handicapped  at every turn by lack af funds for  badly needed improvements, it constitutes a severe test of a man's public-  spiritedness to consent to stand tho  kicks and often unfair criticism which  a term in the council under such circumstances usually means.  The incoming council is likely to  have a hard row to hoe, and the very  difficulty of the position makes it  more than ever necessary that a  strong body should be got together,  who can steer their ship through to  calm waters again. The difficulties of  course are all financial, and it is a  matter for congratulation that the finance committee consisting of Aldermen Taylor and Sutherland, with the  mayor have been again prevailed upon  to accept nomination. However devoutly these gentlemen might wish it,  nothing could be gainci by a change  just at the present stage and it might  easily be highly detrimental to tho  city's interests.  It is to be regretted perhaps that  some other members of the council  could not see their way to continue in  office until matters began to straighten  out a little, but the needs of private  business interests must of course be  attended to, and nominations will lie  needed on Monday week for four aldermen to take the places of Aldermen  Copeland, Coscns, Thompson end Colder, who have definitely decided to  withdraw.

The  result is, that st ike present moment  the Canadian people owe to foreign  countries��� or to the United States  and���I can scarcely call Great Britain  a foreign country��� to Great Britain  at wen, a stun of no leu. than ��600,-  000,000 or W,000,000,OOU; and it is  now op to the country, up to Canada  to provide the interest on this great  sum ol money,"  That Canada with her vast resources  and undeveloped wealth it well able to  do thlt there is no doubt, but there Is  no 'getting away from the fact that  for the moment the sources of supply  of capital have been diverted to mom  profitable channels, and such comparatively low revenue bearing securities as  municipal debenture bonds art left out  la the cold.  Hitherto Kelowna has been particularly fortunate in disposing of her  debentures at good prises, and probably the Optimism thut created it to  blame for the present decidedly awkward state of af airs, though it might  be tome comfort to reflect that Kelowna is far better off than toons  of other towns.

Foster said of the cost  of living that the new parrels post  system would help the consumer and  the producer very greatly by reducing  the numbers of middlemen. It would  be possible to have a farmer 100  miles from town send regularly 19 or  30 pounds of butter direct Jo the. city  consumer, thus saving the grocer'��� pro  fit, to which is added an apportionment of the grocer's high rent, made  high by the speculative land values. In  the course of his speech Mr. Foster deprecated thf extravagance of the peo-  pk> of this country and urged that  they correct this weakness. In the  two words '"middlemen" and "extravagance". The minister of trade and  commerce has discovered a couple of  very potent causes of the present high  cost of living.

Professor Andrews, of Regina, bids  fair to go down to posterity as one  of the most practical and fur-reaching  benefactors of the western country.  In Saskatchewan, Alberta and Manitoba -millions of dollars' worth of  straw is annually burned out of the  way, in the samu manner, and for  the same reason' that in ��� the pioneer  days of tho eastern provinces millions of dollars' worth of magnificent  timber were destroyed for want of  a market.  If Professor Andrews' invention for  turning the straw into little fuel  briquettes proved to be what he claims  it is, a problem whioh has vexed the  soul .of the western farmer for many  years has been satisfactorily solved:  and waste has been turned into value  in the most remarkably beneficial manner.  The first briquette, Professor Andrews has produced, is- very 'small���  not much bigger than a crown piece.  It is black, and as far as appearance  goes, might be made out of coal dust.  The farmer if he has power on Ms  farm can make the briquettes himself.  He can drive his threshing machine,  and-make briquettes at the same time.  The doctor claims that the cost is  small, and that the equivalent of 80  tons of anthracite, or 160 tons of the.  Saskatchewan lignite coal can lie obtained from an average crop of straw  grown on a half section of 320 uores  Ton tons of this would wacm the farmer's house, but he would be saved  the trouble and expense of hauling it  from town. The sulphur of the briquettes would be available for sale in1  the towns which also would get cheap  fuel instead of the dear fuel as at lhi>  present time.  If Professor Andrews' briquette is  what he claims for it, he has added  millions annually to the wealth of  the prairie country; and, as patents  go in this commercial age, he should  incidentally mako a few millions for  himself, for he will have done one of  the biggest things and solved one of  the knottiest of problems.  CANADA'S PREMIER SWIMMER  WILL GO TO OLYMPIC GAMES  In spite of reports to the contrary  George Hodgson, Canada's beet all-  round swimmer and breaker of records  will compete in the 1916 Olympic  games if the M.A.A.A. wished him to,  says an eastern exchange. Before the  Canadian swimming championships  held in Montreal the great swimmer  had decided that that event should be  his last official act us a water-speed  competitor.  Since then, however, he hat evidently  been thinking things over, and has at  last decided to wear the colors of the  McOill men for the balance o(,the present season. This will not entail the  usual trip to New York and Boston,  but will merely mean participation in  the intercollegiate meet with Toronto  Varsity to be held in Montreal about  the middle of January.  With the end of tho present year  Hodgson's career at McCill University  closes and the great swimmer will now  take up his profession as a civil engineer. The big merman, however, is  himself authority for the statement  that he had practically decided to stay  in the game for a few more years at  least, and says that he intends keeping in shape and turning out for the  tryouts.  "After thiB year" said Hodgson, "1  shall probably not do any swimming,  except for my own amusement, until  the 1916 Olympic. rolls around."  ICELAND WILL HAVE  A FLAG OF ITS OWN  A referendum on the extension of the  franchise to married women will next  year be taken in every city in Ontario,  declared Dr. Margaret Gordin, president of the Toronto .Suffrage Association.  In the Danish cabinet council recently Mr. Hannes Hofstein, tho minister of Iceland, moved that a royal  manifesto be issued by which special  colors of Iceland be authorised, the  details of the flag to be decided' by  another royal decree after the wishes  of. the Icelander on this point have  been learned by the minister.  The premier, Mr. Zshle, slated that  there would be no object'o:, to Iceland  having its own colors, provided that  the Dannebrog, the common flag of  Denmark and its independence, be displayed as usual. This flag ought always be hoisted on the government  buildings of Iceland. The king expressed his sympathy with the motion,  taking it as a matter of course that  the now Icelandic flag would not  bear any striking resemblance to that  of any other non-Danish.country.  THE LANGUAGE OF FOWLS  Do you ever listen to your fowls and  endeavor to understand what they  are talking about? If you study your  birds and become familiar with the  sounds they utter, the many different  ways of making and accenting the  same or similar sounds, you almost  unconsciously learn to associate each  sound with a meaning of its own. After a while-you know that a certain  kind of cackle means return to the  flock after nesting, or another form of  cackle may mean prowlers, eats, dogs,  foxes, or perhaps snakes. The "hawk  cry" you probably know well. If you  have attended to the wants of many  brooder chickens you certainly know  the "hungry cry," the pitiful bleat of  the lost chick that can't find its way  home, the "brooding cry", the happy  little twitter which accompanies feeding, the contented going-to-sleep song  when put snugly to bed, and many  other sounds that all have a meaning  to the observing poultryman. Knowledge of the different sounds and their  meanings often may help a poultryman  to make his chicks more comfortable  and to prevent losses. Don't make  any mistake, every cry of chick or  fowl has a meaning and the others  understand it.  DHY MASHES IN THE RATION  A definite announcement that tht  parcel post system wiU .be inaugurated  during the month of January it mad*  by the Hon., L P. fellKSer, Pottmas-  ter-General. The data) however, wffl b��  towards the latter part of .the month,  after the holiday ruth hat subsided.  There has been riimort of delay in put*  ting the service in operation, bat whibt  the necessary negotiations With the.  railway companies have tended that  way, this will not prevent a start  made at the time forecasted. An  agreement with the railway companies  in respect to compensation for their  handling the panel post mails has not  yet been reached, but matters are  ihaping themselves auspiciously. The  companies will be liberally paid for  the servioe, and, while there is no  official statement about H, there it  much doubt of them getting all they  ask.  'Mona Lisa". Leonardo da Vinci's  great painting, which was stolen from  the Louvre, in Paris, more than two  years ago, has been found. It is now  in the hands of the Italian authorities  and will be returned to France-  Experiments show that a greater  efficiency is obtained from feed consumed if a part of the grains are  given in their ground form or as a  dry mash. Two years' work oa the  phase of feeding show that birds receiving whole grains give a product  valued at only 18 per cent above the  cost of feed, while those receiving part  of the ration in tho form of ground  grains show an excess of 68 per cent.  The actual difference in the     total  alue of product was found to be almost one-third greater with the hens  having ground grains in the ration.  This does not mean that ground  grain can take the place of whole  grain. Ground grains require less energy in their digestion, but a ration  composed entirely of them restrict exercise and the health of the birds  would be impaired by reason of    the  tendency toward too great a concentration.  Ground grain or dry mash, as they  are usually called, give variety to a  ration, increase palatability and add  relish to the feed. If a hen .is getting  tired of the whole grain, she can  make up on dry mash.      ,  The dry mash is fed in a self-feeding hopper, which saves much labor.  On large commercial egg plants,  where the hens number up to the  thousands, the dry mash has supplemented, or on many of them almost  entirely taken the place of the wet  mash.  The objections to the wet mash are  that more labor is required in mixing  and feeding, and if it is not fed with  care it may, by being allowed to become sour and moldy, produce indiges  tion and diarrhoea. The absolute  cleanliness the feeding demands is not  found on many poultry farms. It is a  good practice on small farms where  flocks are small and where there is  sufficient time tor the feeder to give  the constant attention to details the  method requires and demands.

Campbell is to open u new grocery  store in tho tlletler block in tho premises- just vacated by Messrs. Dalgleish  &   11urding.  Mr. Campbell, of course is too well  known to the people of Kelowna to  need any introduction and his numerous friends will, no doubt bo glad to  know that ho is once more entering  ihe business field. His connection with  the grocery business in Kelowna dates  back to very early days, some eight  or nine years ago, since when, and until recently he was manager of the  grocery department of Lequime Bros.,  the pioneer store of tho district.  The exact date of the opening of the  now store is a little uncertain, owing  to the fact, that considerable alterations have to be made, and shelving  and counters erected, but it is hoped  to be able to commence business early  next week.-'   o   &KLUND IN VANCOUVER SEEKING  MATCH  WITH WINNER OF  WALKER-HATCH BOUT  | When George Walker and Al.

Amusements  BUNTY PULLS THE STRINGS  This play is a play one '.�� not iik��h  to tire of seeing. It is aja indigenous  to the soil of    Scotland as a Quiller  Couch story to a fishing,   community  of Britain.   The Scotoh character that  has persevered through generations of'  trial and struggle wresting life from a'  stubborn soil and faring bravely     on1  against every   disadvantage,   religious'  to superstition, clannish, parsimonious  but    always intensely human, has full,  play in the types presented.  "Bunty Pulls the Strings" is trash  and sweet as a budding hawthorn.  Not that the characters are overly  good, on the contrary they have many  and glaring faults, but the tenor ot  tho play is cheerful, wholesome, and  gives a welcome picture of life as it  is, not as people fear it will be,; as  men hope to make it. The reality of  the piny makes its humor natural, and  one might think himself Bitting- ipon  an eminence overlooking some rural  Scotch neighborhood with the visian  of a seer who saw into the hearts of  all the actors in the scene. The company presents the play with its light  and shade in capital fashion. The  quaint costumes, the burr of the  Scotch dialect, and the open exposition of the Scotoh characteristics make  a happy combination through wflich  the author peeps good-huuioredly, and  smiling at the follies of men.

BE PREPARED FOR SPRING  SEEDING  Now is tht time for farmers to consider the question of a good seed  grain supply for next spring.  The 1 greater part of the grain In the  west was harvested under ideal conditions last fall and little difficulty will  be met with in getting seed of strong I  vitality. Notwithstanding this there  are some individuals and even sections  of the western provinces that were not  so fortunate at harvest time and now  have seed of doubtful vitality in their  granaries for the spring seeding.  Seed of strong vitality makes a  good start, helps to keep down the  weeds and finally gives the big yield;  while seed, of poor vitality is a sure  loss.  Therefore every farmer who suspects  the vitality of his Bead should send  a sample to the Dominion government  seed laboratory, Calgary, for a germination test. In order that the report of this test may be of greatest  value to the sender, preparatory to  sending the sample he should clean  his seed as for seeding. Too often seed  that is badly oontaminatedwith weed  seed is sown. Every year the proportion ' of wostern wheat and oats which  contain wild onts is increasing. Such  grain must take a lower grade because  ���no satisfactory method of separating  it has been devised, Samp'.a of flax  containing 15 per cent, of weei! iceds  are only too common; this amounts to  approximately 200 bushels of waste  per oar. When the cost of tl resiling  handling and freight on this useful  material is added to the loss occasioned by the injury to the growing crop,  the net profits per acre is very materially lessened.  Flax is the most badly contaminated  weed which the farmer sows, and since  it is usually sown on new breaking bis  land is practically ruined at the start.  Farmers who have clean farms, or  farms free from some of the most  troublesome weeds���wild oats, stink-  weed, false flax, hall mustard, tumbling mustard, etc., should be very  careful to bow only clean seed.  The Seed Laboratory at Calgary is  at the disposal of the farmers or the  publio, and it is hoped that they will  make use of it in their efforts to obtain a pure seed supply.  la former years most of the samples  have oome in to be tested in March  and April, overtaxing the capacity of  the laboratory and sometimes causing a delay in -reporting on the samples.

TO BE THE  CAUSE OF INFANTILE  PARALYSIS  Researches by Dr. Seymour Hadwen.  pathologist of the Dominion department of agriculture, at Agassis, into  the cause of paralysis among u flock  of sheep at Keremeos, hat resulted in  important discoveries as to th�� miu-  Irnt wood tick (Dermacentor veaustus).  The investigations, which seem to establish tho cause of paralysis unong  sheep, also threw a sidelight on f-ev-  erol cases of infant pnralysiB and mor-  tality among children In the tp|.tr  country.  Since MHO, ropoated oomplalnls had  been coming to the department Iroin  a rancher in tho Similkameon regarding n form of paralysis affecting his  kheop, and occurring annually between  lato February and oarly April. Tho  farmer in question lived nonr Koro-  meos, whore the summers are hoi.  In the autumn of 1UI0 he imported  (100 Bleep from Montana, and in tho  following spring they began to develop symptoms of paralysis, which  during the 30 days depleted his flock  of  16 sheep.  In 11)12 he loBt 13 more, ill vearlings  in all being affeotod;'.and during May,  .lime and July he lost eight out of  1100 .affected, but it Is impossible to  sny if all were affected with paralysis.  Dr. Hadwen was sent to tho district  by the department, and was unfortunate in not seeing any recent cases,  but several which had been affooted.  "The sheep had just been shorn" says  Dr. Hadwen, "und on examining one  of them, n largo tick which hnd been  cut in half was found attached ro its  back; This was what gave riso to the  idea that tho disease was caused by  tick bites. I remembered also hearing  of curious eases of paralysis in children whore ticks wc.ee found attached  to their backs.  "Todd (1(112), in a recent publication, collected caso reports from medical men in British Columbia of paralysis in children associated with tick  bites, und Bishopp and King (1913)  have heard of similar casos in Montana. After thoroughly going over the  situation. I returned to my laboratory at Agassi/, bringing with mo a  number of ticks, and it was hero that  the disease was reproduced experimentally .under laboratory eonditions and  in a locality whoro the disease does  not exist. Karly in June another visit Was made lo the affeuted district,  and tho flocks of sheep again inspected  There were only a few ticks about,  however.  "One lamb was seen, about a month  old) partly paralysed in the hind  quarters, with a gorged tick attached to nock. The tick was removed, und two days later the lamb could  nin like the rest. Another lamb,  showing slight loss of co-ordination in  the hind quarters, was also caught,  but was recovering rapidly.  'The obvious reasons for few eases  developing in lambs is that they  usually come late in the season and  are kept in fields for a week or ten  days after they are born so that by1  the time thoy are taken up totho hills  tho ticks have practically gone lor  tho season.  1 was informed that there had been  about 25 cases among the lambs, but  tho shepherd thought some of them  had rheumatism, which may, of  course, be correct. As far as can be  ascertained, the tiok season round  about Keremeos may in some yours  commence as early as February, and it  does not extend much beyond May.  "Another shepherd told mc that a  few adult ticks were usually found on  the sheep io the early autumn, and  that he generally saw n tew cases of  parnlysis at that time.  "The district of Koromoos is a verv  hot and dry    ono (it has the distinction of being the only place in   Canada where scorpions   are to be found)  [and this doubt lews is the reason why  ticks abound throughout the country."  Tho    disease   is a form of paralysis  occurring in sheep, man, and probably  other animals, and is caused by    the  bites of Dermacentor venustut Ban.ii.  The"   tick has    a decided ;>nfantnco  for   biting   along tho spinal column:  whether or not the   disease can     be  reproduced by ticks   biting In    ether  parts of the body remains ,0 be piov-  led, but it is evident that the bites   of  ���fthis tiok are capable of producing serious local effects at any situation   on  the body where they become attached.  According to sheep owners, the disease  is sometimes of long duration.     One  shepherd carried   a   paralysed     lamb  from camp to camp nearly all summer  and it finally recovered.     In     sheep  which gram on tho mountains,     disastrous results are said to occur trom  Laffected   animals   losing their balance  read failing.  A yearling colt was seen showing  a loss of co-ordination; a dog became  .paralysed for a few days and recovered  after the removal af a tick, reports  have been received of paralysed rabbits having been found, and of young  grouse dropping out of the trees with  rings of ticks round their necks. The  exact nature of the disease has not  been ascertained, All that oan be said  is that In- sheep symptoms of paralysis?  THURSDAY, JAVNABY I, 19U.  I  ����� ������I.JIIl.ll-iLI���i_  occur six to seven days after ticks  have become attacked to them; that  the only pathological lesions found on  autopsy art subcutaneous haemorrhages where the ticks had beta attach  ed and congestion of the brain and  cord. Attempt to transmit the disease by inoculations have not been  successful, and no parasites have been  discovered in the blood or in the nerve  tissues. Bouillon cultures, prepared  from diseased animals, have remained  sterile.  The most likely explanation seems  to l)o that tho paralysis it duo to toxins inoculated by tho ticks.  Tho incubation period of six to seven  days suggests that "tiok paralysis"  may be a disease of miorobio origin,  and it is of course possible that tho  eausutive agent has not been recognized: but tho fact that no fover has been  recorded and inoculations hnvo boon  successful rather negntlves thit idea.  That ticks may exert toxic effects is  probable.  The symptoms of "tiok paralysis" in  lambs develop gradually. The Itrst  noticoablo sign is restlessness, the  lambs at times stagger about and  bump against obstacles and occasionally fall when trying to stop; later on  '.hoy fall down and cannot rise; at  this stage they strn" -,rt n groat deal  As paralysis advancm the lambs cease  struggling but still have a wild-eyed  look; they drink milk, with loss avidity  As soon as recovery begins they again  continually straggle in their attempts  to riso, and this continues until1 thoy  are ablo to stand, after which recovery  is vory rapid.  No efforts have as yet boon mado to  treat the affected animals, but this  will bo undertaken in the course of investigation. It would appear advisable, however, on general principles, to  remove the ticks from affected animals  and to resort to dipping, if possible.  The evil effects of this tiok aro apparently not confined to animals as a  number of deaths have occurred among  children, notably in the Kootenays,  which seem to spring from the same  cause,  One suoh case occurred at Creston,  where a four-year-old girl lost the use  of her legs and became unable to  stand. A tick was removed from tho  nape of her nock, and in three days  she was well.  In January of last year a similar  case occurred at Vernon, the child being three and a half years old.  At Nelson two deaths occurred. After death, a tick was taken from tht  nape of the neck of one child, and from  the right temple of the other. Medical men report several instances of the  same kind.

The prises offered are of liberal proportions and the exhibition of milk,  and cream with itt comparative influence should have considerable educational valut.  The Canadian government has awarded a contract to the Warner * Swa-  sey Company, of Cleveland, Ohio, far  the construction of what is to he the  largest telescope in the world. Eighteen months will be required to manufacture it and place it in position. A  rough.idea of itt lite may be gained  from noting that a hill sized automobile could be readily driven through  the tube.  The Warner fc Swasey Company built  the l.oik telescope, finished in 1887, tht  object glass of which is thirty-ail inches in diamster, and the Yerkes tale-  scope finished in 1893, has a fortyhtoh  glass,   the hu-geet in the world.  Ambrose Swasey, a distinguished  scientist, and a member of the tea-  treating firm, when asked for the details of the colloeial new instrument,  said:  "Great Impetus wiH be given te astronomy by the action of the Canadian government in acquiring thit  splendid   seventy-two inch iastruratat.  "This great engine of toitnee,  weighing fully fifty teat, retting earn  massive piers of concrete, wffl hate a  tube thirty feet long and setae fast  in diameter, which will weigh tat  tont."
