 VOL. IV.   NO. 24.  KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY,  MAY 9, 1912.  $1.50 Per Annum.  [Meeting of  City Council  I Location  of CN.R. Tracks -  Aid. Millie Protests against the  Speed of Automobiles  I The city council met Monday  morning Inst, the Mayor and Aid.  Millie, Copeland, Blackwood and  Taylor being present.  Mr. Leckie waited on the   coun-  Icil asking for information  respect-  ling the  installing  of  transformers  (for users of electric   power.     He  asked if it was the intention of the  cily to oupply the transformers  or  vould each individual.be required  |to put in his own.  Aid. Millie stated that the Light  Committee had discussed the mat-  Iter and had decided to instal transformers where a consumer could  guarantee to use power to the extent, of not less than $125 per  year.  The following accounts were re-  Iferred   to   the   finance  committee  for payment.  Kelowna Carriage Works  K. Smith, work on Bankhead water  extension  A. Galhamet' ditto  J. Smith ditto  J.

A communication was read from  the American Express Co., asking  advice as to what steps to take to  obtain reimbursement lor certain  Kelowna debenture coupons which  had been lost with the "Titanic."  A  letter  was  read from Mr. R.  B. Kerr, urging the council lo prepare a by-law enforcing the provision of handrails to stairways in  public buildings.  Aid. Millie said he quite agreed  with Mr. Kerr,  Mayor Jones raid that the matter already came within the authority of the building inspector and he  thought if he wns specially instructed lo see lhat hand rails were provided thru: would not he need of  a aprrinl by-luw.  The letter was eventually referred to the fire and building committee.  A letter was read from the Cnr-  tier Centenary Committee asking  for the cooperation of the city in  providing a monument to Sir Geo.  Etienne Cartier, to cost $100,000.  The letter was filed.  A complaint was received from  Mr. W. F. Bouvette respecting the  widening of Pendozi St. He did  not think it was fair to take all the  land required from one side of the  street and none from the other,  the owners on the west Bide were  in a better position to spare the  land as most of their lots were acre  lots, while on the east the lots were  mostly small. He had gone to a  lot of expense in fixing up the front  of his place, and expressed indignation that he should have it all  torn up again to satisfy those on  4.00  44.90  32.58  26.33  41.66  11.75  2.70  56.76  5.80  3.75  5.00  7.50  15.75  60.00  18.10  .'10.00  10.00  40.50  104.00  7.08  8.00  1975  6.00  27.00  .14  41.33  17.74  130.00  17.10  60.00  90.00  70.00  166.66  100.00  6.50  15.00  525.C0  the west side.  Aid. Taylor mentioned that  nearly every one concerned had  signed ihe petition to have the  street widened.  Mr. Ashcroft, engineer of the C.  N. R. who is at present nt work in  the city locating the trackage lor  the railway, waited on the council  in an informal way, in respect to  railway crossings. He said it had  practically been decided to have  have the company's water frontage  on the land belonging to Dr. Boyce  and Mrs. Stirling. In reaching this  property they would have to :oinc  down Gaston avenue passing along  the Exhibition grounds. This  would mean shifting Gaston ave.  south a little, the company replacing the street. The line would not  interfere with the exhibition  grounds. Several level crossings  of streets would be necessary. The  station would be located on Ellis  St. on the south west corner opposite the Exhibition Grounds. The  complete survey of the lines would  probably be ready in about a  month's time and would be laid  formally before th�� council.  The six money by-laws were reconsidered and finally passed.  Aid. Copeland suggested that  steps be taken at once to clear the  creek of fallen logs and brush.  There was a possibility that the  water might be high in the next  few weeks, and there was danger,  if a jam was formed of having the  bridges carried away.  Aid. Taylor asked how it was  the legs came to be in the creek.  He had a suspicion that some had  been thrown in by people cleanup.  The condition of the sidewalk  along Ellis street next came up for  consideration. Aid. Copeland said  it was in a nery bad condition and  a positive danger to the public. Tie  would be glad lo see it bulled  away.  Aid. Millie said the trouble was  that the land down there was'hc'ld  bv speculators who could not be  induced to sign a petition for a  new sidewalk.  Mayor Jones said that if the old  plank walk was a danger lo the  public the city could have it removed as a nuisance.  Aid. Copeland reported that Mr.  Parkinson had taken the levels at  the sewage farm and had found  that the gravel pit could be easily  drained.  Another matter mentioned by  Aid. Copeland was the prevalence  of dandelions in the city. He  thought lot holders should be  forced to cut them as they were  spreading all over the town. It  was agreed in discussion lhat there  was reason for real alarm over the  spread of these weeds. One or  two lots were mentioned which  were exceptionally bad, and the  city clerk was instructed to write  ihe owners of these to have the  weeds cut before they had time to  seed. There was no reference to  dandelions under the noxious  weed act, but it was felt that it was  a case fos local patriotism, and it  was decided to have a notice in  the papers calling upon the citizens  tn help in their extermination.  Various remedies were suggested  more or less seriously, from <;uinea  pigs to a public clean-up holiday  to be known as "Dandelion Day."  Aid. Copeland said that before  anything could be done with priv.  ate lot holders the city would hnve  to clean up the streets.  Aid. Taylor stated that people  were complaining to him about a  ditch which had been plowed  across the street near the laundry  to carry off the soapy water. 1 his  was referred lo the health com  inittee.  Aid. Taylor also brought up ihe  question of putting sidewalks on  the outside of the trees. He did  not-ogiee wilh it.  A motion was passed authorizing  the payment of a balance of$l(iB6  on ihe nuisance ground.  Aid. Biackwood introduced a  discussion on the state of the nu  ance grounds, which he said was  in a very bad shape. He thought  the place should be cleaned up at  once.  Mayor Jones said that when the  present scavenger was appointed  it was agreed that the city should  allow him the use of a man and  team to put the ground into proper  condition. He thought the committee might now see that this was  done, it having been impossible to  take any action during the winter.  Aid. Millie spoke of the cemetery. People were saying that it  was in a disgraceful condition. He  had complained to the mayor about  it, and he understood that a visit  had been paid to the cemetery.  Mayor Jones slated lhat when  Aid. Millie had called his attention  to the matter he had driven out  <"ith Aid. Sutherland and Aid.  Copeland and had found nothing  very unusual in the condition of  the cemetery. There were some  some dead limbs of trees and other  rubbish which needed cleaning up  and he had spoken to Mr. McMillan about them.  In reply to the question from  Aid. Millie respecting the providing of water for the cemetery,  Mayor Jones said he did not think  anything could be done yet as the  Kelowna Irrigation Co. had not  completed their ditch. He thought  the city should see to the securing  of more land for the cemetery, before the adjoining property was  subdivided.  Aid. Millie entered a vigorous  protest against the terrific speed at  which autos were being driven  through the city. 1'or the sake of  the children who were in danger  of their lives they ought to take  steps to stop it.  A resolution was passed that the  provincial law be rigidly enforced.  Aid. Blackwood referred to Mr.  Ashcroft's statement that the exhibition grounds would not be interfered with by the railway and asked  if the council would meet the A.  and T. Association to discuss the  location ol the new building.  It was decided lo hold a meeting  for the purpose on Friday evening.  The meeting then adj rurned.  Dr. Keller is around again alter  a long confinement to the house.  The Rev. Thos. Greene relumed  Friday from a meeting of the synod  a| Nelson.  The spring assizes open at Vernon iui Tuesday next.  The Rev. A. W. McLeod of Summerland will preach at the Methodist church next Sunday morning  and evening.  Mrs. S. E. Philp wishes to announce to her friends that she will  receive f��r the last time before  leaving the city, on Friday, May I 7  at her home on the corner of Ethel  street and Laurier avenue.  Another fine programme will be  presented on Friday and Saturday  alDreamland including two screaming farce comedies, another Pathe  Weekly, and an exceptional drama  entitled " Capital versus Labour."  The latter is certainly a good one.  The Toronto Ladles' Quartette,  who are nppenring at the Opera  House next Monday, May 13th,  under the auspices ol the Ladies'  Aid of the Mcthodis' church, have  a reputation which should constitute a guarantee of a high class  musical entertainment. Miss Maud  Buschlan, the violinist, is to give a  solo at the Methodist service Sunday night.  Meeting of  School Trustees  Will  Advertise   for   Plans  of  New School  The Board of School Trustees  held a meeting Friday afternoon  last, trustees Lawson, Trench and  McKenzie being present.  I he correspondence included  several applications for positions  upon the school staff, which were  filed.  The following accounts were  passer! for payment:  E. L.

A resolution was passed that ihe  city be requested to purchase the  J. N. Thompson property for the  new school.  It was decided to advertise for  plans of a ten-room school with  board room and assembly hall to  cost about $50,000.  The secretary was requested to  write the Conservative Association  for the return of the school flag.  Victoria Day Sports  Arrangements hove been completed for the sports to take place  on Victoria Day.

Opposition Raised to  Lowering of Lake  A deputation headed by Mr.  Leckie-Ewing, of Okanagan Landing, and Mr. Dudley Ward, M.P.  for Southampton, England, who is  the owner of property on Okanagan Lake, waited upon the Water  Commissioners sitting at Vernon,  and submitted the lollowing petition, which is a copy of one sent  to the Hon. F. D. Monk, and the  Hon. Martin Burrell : ���  "To the Honorable F. D. Monk,  Minister of Public Works, Ottawa,  ��� and ���  To the Honorable Martin Burrell,  Minister of Agriculture, Ottawa.  We, the undersigned residents on  Okanagan Lake Shore, or its neighbourhood,or being interested therein, hereby respectfully request that  the dredging operations now going  on in Okanagan River be stopped  forthwith for the following obvious  reasons : --  1. 1 hat they have caused, and  are still causing a fall in the level  of the lake.  2. That the lowering of the  lake entirely spoils the homes of  the settlers on its shores, and in  most cases renders them unfit to  live in.  3. 1 hat residences which are  wholely dependent-on the lake for  their water, are now being deprive j  of a convenient supply.  4. That in consequence of '.he  lowering of springs and seepage in  proportion to the fall of the lake,  orchards and market gardens are  being seriously affected, because  of the fact that they are solely  dependent on the moisture from  these sources.  5. lhat wharves, both public  and private, and boat anchorages,  are being spoilt, ar.d, owing to the  shallowness of the water, will have  to be rebuilt.  6. Thai shade trees, which are  always so attractive to the summer  visitor, are rapidly dying off for  want of sufficient moisture.  7. That long, unsightly stretches  of mud and rock are being formed  between the houses and the lake,  and from a sanitary point of view  thi3 is most undesirable, especially  in such places as Okanagan Landing and those similarly situated.  Finally, your petitioners consider  that if it is desired to deepen the  channel for navigation purposes,  dredging is (utile ; water finds its  own level and in due course the  lake will fall to the level of the  river bed.  We, therefore, respectfully request that the lake be raised to its  former level (about three feet), and  that navigation be accomplished by  building a suitable lock, or otherwise."  The Commission appeared lo  agree with the contention of the  petitioners, and said lhat the matter would be taken up with the  Ottawa government.

FRANCIS EDWARD RICHMOND  WOLLASTON, Applicant  Mr. R. A Ogilvie, of Vancouver,  is in town this week demonstrating  a most interesting and novel method of irrigating fruit trees without  flumes or ditches It is known as  the Coul's Water Container, and  consists of a cement tank to en-  cire'e the tree and to contain about  eighteen or twenty gallons of  water which is fed gradually to  the roots by a simple floating valve.  The tanks need refilling about  twice in the season. This method  of irrigating has a number of advantages over the present one, nnd  in cases of trees above the ditch or  not accessible by flumes, it might  be tried wilh advantage. Mr. Ogilvie has a specimen tank on show  at Coates, Edward* & Gowen's. The Orchard City Record.

The Yellow Peril  No, we do not refer to the possibility of an inundation of civilization by the uncounted millions  of Chinks, but to another danger  which concerns us locally. You  must have noticed���you certainly  have if you have taken upon yourself the care of a lawn the wonderful profusion this year of those  humble but not unlovelv evidences  of spring, the dandelions. Our  road sides are ablaze with them ;  our meadows and, alas I our lawns  are carpeted with these yellow intruders. Year after year their encroachments have been allowed to  go unchecked, until now we seem  in danger of being over-run with a  weed which is one of the hardest  to get rid of in the whole catalogue  of garden and field pests.  The dandelion seems only to  grow in cultivated land and likes  nothing better than to get established in the velvety green of the  lawn, or in a luxuriant meadow, or  on the grass-grown sides of the  roads. It is really a compliment  to Kelowna lhat we should have  so many, being an unmistakable  evidence of soil richness. But even  compliments, if overdone, are likely  to prove embarrassing. I he dandelion propagates itself with astonishing rapidity, and if allowed to do  so would pretty soon monopolize  the whole townsite. Something  should be done to stop the mischief before it gets any further.  It is just here that the difficulty  arises. The dandelion can be  killed by plowing under, but who  would have the hardihood to suggest that Mr. So-and-so who has  nursed a delicate lawn for years  until he has got a passable patch  of green in front of his house,  should plow it under, because it  has broken out into a rash of dandelions? It would break his heart.  The seeding of the plant can be  pi evented by mowing before the  seed developes, but that does not  kill the parent plant. It can be  dug out, but it must be done  thoroughly for every little b>t of  root left in is capable of growing  another plant. Perhaps some botanist who has made a study of the  plant will come to our rescue and  suggest a remedy.  The council had its attention  drawn to the spreading of the dandelions this week, and bravely determined to tackle the problem,  first cleaning the streets as far as  possible. It is to be hoped that  the citizens will co-operate.  Lowering of the Lake  Kelowna people should take  note of the opposition which is  being raised to the project of lowering the level of the lake by  dredging the Okanngan River below Penticton. On another page  we give a copy of a petition which  is being forwarded to the Minister  of Public Works at Ottawa, asking  that ihe work which has been in  progress for some lime be discontinued.  The city of Kelowna perhaps  more than any other place on the  lake is deeply interested in this  matter and should not allow the  petition lo pass unchallenged. The  whole townsite has been hugely  benefited by the work already  done, and would be still more so,  large areas of low-lying land being  reclaimed and rendered valuable  by the drawing off of the water.  Ihe reasons given against ihe  scheme are not so obvious as the  petitioners seem to imagine, some  of them, indeed, being trivial, and  others greatly exaggerated. How,  for instance, the lowering of the  water level a few feet can render  homes on the lake shore "unfit to  live in" we fail to see; or how  they can be deprived of their  water supply. The lake is not to  be dried up, and the difference in  a few feet in its level would be  unnoticeable except in a very few  places.  That there will be some little inconvenience to owners of���ahem I  ���wharves, we will not deny, but it  would not take many of Astor's  millions to repair all the damage  in that line.  The enormous advantages which  would accrue not only to K-lowna  but to many other places would  outbalance all these things, not to  mention the great benefit of extending water transportation many  miles further south.  Bees and Fruit Culture  Bees, except far a few enthusiasts, have genetally been regarded  as amongst the minor worries of  life, but of no patticuhr consequence. Otchardis.18, however, are  coming to think otherwise, and to  realize that these curious little insects may be made to play an  Important part in the swelling of  their yearly returns. Mr. Harris,  a government hee expert, is to  give a practical demonstration  next Monday afternoon on the  subject in connection 'villi the  Farmers' Institute at Mr. W. T.  Ashbridge's apiary, Glenn Avenue,  which will give an opportunity to  fruitgrowers to make then selves  acquainted wilh what is doing in  this line.  The Canadian Horticulturist  prints an extract from the British  Bee Journal on the value of bees  during a rainy blossoming season,  which might be studied with advantage just now.  Rain, says the writer, during the  blooming season is a frequent  cause of unfruitfulness. Continuous rain may wash away the pollen, and it may lose its vitality, bul  the principal cause of unfruitfulness at such times is due to the  fact that insects, and particularly  bees, which promote cross-fertilization between varieties are absent.  Unfruitfulness may be clue to a  scarcity of bees. I could mention  several instances where orchards  had proved unprofitable until bees  were introduced.  One in particular, a foily acre  block of Alexander peach trees,  had never borne profitable crops  and the owner was about lo cut  them down. When asked where  the nearest bees were kept he said  five miles. Those bees were of no  use to him al all, and 1 advised him  to give the trees another season's  trial, and to get some bees at once.  He obtained two colonies of bees  which he placed in the centre of  the orchard. Of course, by this  time more than half the blossom  was over, but for all that he got a  fair amount of fruit, the trees nearest the hives having the most on  them. The next year he bought  more bees with the result that the  trees were so laden with fruit that,  although they had been thinned,  the branches had to be supported  by strong wooden props. Needless lo say, there were no more  complaints, for here waa ample  proof that all lhat was required to  make the trees fruitful were bees  to fertilize the blossoms.  Another fruit grower found that  '"hen he brought his hives into the  orchard the first year's yield showed a fourfold increase of fruit, independent of the honev crop,  showing the importance of having  the hives near the (tees. Apples  last year in his district had been  very scarce, excepting his own  orchard and those immediately  adjoining it.  Cross-fertilization produces very  much larger and better flavored  fruit than the self-fertilized does.  This cross-pollination is almost entirely dependent upon insects, the  chief of which are bees. There  should be a sufficient number of  bees in the vicinity, that no matter  how unfavorable the weather, the  blossoms would be visited often  enough to fertilize them perfectly.  Bees may also prevent frost damage. If bees are plentiful fertilization takes place as soon as the  blossom is ready, and the blossom  is better ready lo stand a hard frost.  If through lack of bees or bad  weather fertilization Is deferred, a  froal may come in the meantime  and result in great Inss to the fruil  grower.

In Boston the e-cperiment  has had its first trial. The picture  aevvice came just before the church  service that is to say, before the  anthem, the offertory and the sermon. I he reel shown was the lift  of Moses from the time that Phar  aoh's daughter found him in the  bulrushes, until he assumed the  leadership ot the toiling, slave-  driven children of Israel. We are  told thai the story was dramatically  depicted before an audience that  measured the capacity of t  church, and that when ihe pictures  were run and the minister announced that those who did not  care to remain for the sermon  might leave, none left save a few  small boys who could not be  expected to be interested in a sermon anyway.  ���" Portland  I elegram."  Would Have Made  Canada  Adjunct to States  Considerable interest in the abortive reciprocity question and not  a little indignation has been aroused lately by the publication of  certain correspondence between  President  I alt and Roosevelt.  In a letter dated January, 191 I,  discussing the reciprocity pac1 between the United states and Canada, William I aft, President of the  United States, wrote to Theodore  Roosevelt, ex-President:  " 1 he amount of Canadian products we would lake would produce a current of business between  Western Canada and the United  Slates that would make Canada  only an adjunct to the United Slates.  It would transfer an their important  business to Chicago and New York,  with their bank credits and everything else, and it would increase  greatly the demand of Canada for  our manufactures."  To this Colonel Roosevelt replied :  " Dear President* It seems to  me that what you propose lo do  with Canada is admirable from  every standpoint."  1 he streets of Victoria are paved  wilh gold literally.

Nov.* it is up Jto  the 240 ,M.nk and is still pumping  itself.  A wireless message from an unknown steamer reached New York  saying that it had sighted the iceberg which sank the Titanic, about  fifty ii-iles south of the scene of  the disaster. Dozens of bodies  were seen huddled on the iceberg  all having life preserver's on and  evidently frozen to death. The  steamer did not take off any of the  bodies.  A direct exchange of parcels between Canada and France and between Canada and Algeria nnd  Corsica, via France, came into operation on May Ist. This is m addition to the existing parcel post  exchanged hy way of England.

Millions Spent in  Popularizing Gum  "The sum of money spent inad-  vertisiug gum is simply enormous,  but it has made gum-chewing a  national affair," says Frank S. Fleer  in the "Detroit Free Press." Mr.  Fleer is a retired gum manufacturer  his particular brand having attained  such a vogue that he sold to ihe  trust, and since then has been passing his time in easy street.  " It may take as much as $ 1,000,-  000 jn newspaper, periodical and  billboard advertising to put a gum  before the public, and keep it there  until everybody has bought a package, and if ihe merit is in the product this will come back all right.  "The success of .some gums is a  part of the success of this country,  which is the most progressive in  the world, end largely through  advertising. No class spends as  much money in advertising as do  the Americans, whose business  has grown with leaps and bounds  since the Union became a fact.  Some manufacturers who frowned  on advertising in the old days  have seen the error of their ways,  nnd are using printer's ink to good  advaniage,  " The most successful of manufacturing and retail establishments  are the ones that advertise all of  the while. They do not allow the  public lo forget them ; while it is  just as necessary as paying the  rent; and the best part of it is  that sensible advertising makes  business enough to more than take  care of itself."

The mouth of Bear creek  is on the opposite shore of the lak  and was so named on account of  six bears being killed there in one  day. The original owner of the  townsite, August Gillard was called  " Cumuxtoush" by the Indians,  which means grizzly bear. ������- Vernon  News, (Twenty years ago.)

A rather remarkuble experiment  has been carried on for some years  In one of the public schools of Stockholm, Sweden, to test the beneficial  Influence of electricity on the development of the human body. Two  groups each of twenty-five children,  as nearly alike as possible In general  health, nnd size and weight of the Individuals, were given Instruction In  two rooms, both being equal in slie,  ventilation, lighting nnd exposure. But  the group in one of the rooms was  continually exposed to the Influence  of elctrlc currents, while the other  group was not.  Now, after three or four years of  the tests, it Is claimed that the "electrified" children have outstripped the  other group, growing faster, ,'ilng  on weight quicker, developing better  appetites and showing more physical  resistance. Ab a whole, the mentality  of the electrified group was the  greater, as backwardness in the majority of cases Is the result of some  physical defect. >  EDISON'S RULES OF LIFE  Expect! to Reach One Hundred and  Fifty.  "Why don't ybu try to Invent an  airshipT" Thomas Alva Edison was  asked reonily  "Why don't I try?" responded Mr.  Edison. "Why, I did try thirty years  ago. I looked Into It from every side.  We knew then the principles of gliding Just as you have them now, but  we didn't have an internal combustion  engine."  Speaking on his rdles of life the  great inventor said:  "With my system of living I expect  to live 150 years.  "My syBtem 1b based on proper living, sleeping and clothing.  "1 am In bed six hours, all of It  good, solid sleep.    It's enough.  "I don't ever Intend to retire. Work  has made this earth a paradise for  me, and I don't believe there.Js any  paradise up above.  "My body and I are still keeping at  it for about eighteen hourr a day, and  I seldom get tired.  "I am better able to keep working  now than when I was twenty-five.  ���"1'lils earth Ib a cinch if you take  It right  "Agreeable work never hurt any  one.   1 art no exception.  "I am not an individual; I am an  aggregate of cells.  "When I have any spare time I  study music.  "I eat sb much as 1 want, but that  Is very little���hulf a handful of solids  at each meal."  INVENTS "FJIWT AID" TO UOIIKLK  SKIRTS.  Alexander Jameson Calhoun, of  Bloomfleld, N.J., hus Invented a d?v|.c  which he says will ussist women  wearing hobble skirts in getting  aboard trains The device, which Is  wprked by hydruultlc pressure, consists of an Iron jack to which Is attached a cushioned chair worked by  two levers. The "lift" Is placed In  front of the platform of the cur. When  the woman Is seated in tlie chair the  operator preBses a handle which lifts  the chair up lu Hue with the platform  of the car. He then works a lever  which extends the chair straight out  and lands the passengers on the piat-  form of the car. It is said persons  are lifted to the platform quicker  than they can climb the steps.  Bloomfleld women who have Tied  the "lift" say ihey hope It will be  placed In all stations. At most coun-  ry stations the platforms are very  low, which makes the first step of  the car about eighteen Inches from  the ground.  Oiled Paper Umbrellas of tho  Japanese.  The umbrellas used hy the Japanese  are similar In all respects to the  paper parasols that are common In  this country, except that the Japanese  treat their mnterlnl with a vegetable  oil which renders -It Impervious to  moiBture. The oil Is obtained from  the seedB of a plant (Perilla ocl-  moldesj cultivated in some parts of  Japan. A bushel of the seed produces  about a gallon of oil, and the crop  amounts to $360,000 bu. annually. The  oil Is boiled and, when cool, is applied  to tho paper umbrellas with a piece  of cloth or waste. The umbrellas  are then exposed to the sun for five  hours.  The oil-paper Is also used In making  lanterns and for window panes. The  paper lantern Is, in common use in  japan for lights on 'rickshas and  wagons, and as a hand lantern like  the tin lanterns here. Oiled paper Is  used Instead of window glass lu prac-  tloally all of the native houses  throughout the empire.  New Zealand's Sulphur Island '  One of the most extraordinary Islands in the world lies In the Jay ot  Plenty, New Zealand. It Is called  White Island, and eopslts mainly of  sulphur mixed with gypsum and a  few other minerals. Over the lBland,  which Is about three miles In clr-  cumternce, and rises between 800 and  900 feet above the sea, there continually flotB an Immense cloud of  vapor attaining an elevation of 10,000  feet In the centre Is a boiling lake  of acid charged water, covering fifty  acres, and surrounded with blow holes  from which steam and sulphurous  fumes are emitted with great force  and noise. With care a boat can be  navigated ou tbe lake. The sulphur  from White Island Is very pure, but  little effort has yet been made to procure It systematically.
