C. Horse in camp there; a letter  from VV. F. Bouvette, re the purchase of ten feet from the front of  his property for the widening of  Pendozi St  An application was also read  from the Kelowna Canning Co. for  a fire hydrant to protect their new  building. The committee, it appeared had already decided to  place one there.  A letter was also lead from Mr,  Norman S. Rankin, respecting the  Irrigation Convention.  A motion was submitted by Aid.  Taylor and passed " That all subdivision plans passed by the council be placed upon the city map  and assessed as lots."  Aid. Sutherland said the practice had been not to place these  subdivisions on the map until the  plans had been returned from the  Land Registry Office. This had  meant considerable delay and inconvenience, as until such subdivisions were properly recorded it  was impossible to consider others  which might be introduced in the  same neighborhood.  Aid, Sutherland mentioned that  the light committee had deemed it  advisable to delay for the present  the purchase of a new boiler as  they intended gathering some information on the question of the  Diesell oil engines.  Aid. Copeland broached the  question of giving a lower rate to  water Users for lawn sprinkling.  The members of the Light Committee however took alarm at this  prospect of further reducing their  revenue. They were willing to  make the reduction if the council  would turn over the difference to  their funds.  Aid. Copeland said there would  be considerable advantage to the  city in thus affording cheaper rates  for water to sprinkle lawns. Many  people would use more, and the  result would be seen in the beautifying the city.  The idea was dropped however,  and it was found that very few  people would be affected, not  many of the monthly accounts being much over the minimum fixed  charge.  Aid. Copeland reported that that  afternoon levels were to be taken  for the new irrigation flume down  Harvey avenue to connect up the  system in that neighborhood again.  He had seen all the lot holders  there and had outlined a plan  which was agreeable to them all,  and the Work would be done at  once.  The matter of street work was  then discussed. Aid. Copeland  said the committee had been ovet  every street in the city, and there  was a great deal of work to be  done, he was afraid they would  not be able to spend a great deal  of money on any one street as the  available funds would not go very  much further. It had been absolutely necessary to fix up the roads  leading to the cannery and packing houses, and this had taken a  large share of their funds.  Mayor Jones drew attention to  the fact that there would be considerable hauling from Glenmore  this year, and a direct road into  town down Gaston Ave. would  soon be necessary.  Aid. Blackwood reported that he  had been approached by Mr. A.  Johnson respecting some stumps  in front of his place on Elliott Ave,  which he wished to have blasted  out. He was clearing up his lots,  and wanted to have the front of  them cleared.  It was thought that blasting in  that neighborhood would be to  dangerous as there were too many  houses around.  The Board of Works were asked  to look into the matter.  Aid. Copeland pointed out that  it was time something was being  done with regard to the hay on the  streets. Aid. Blackwood had asked  permission to cut the grass in front  of his own property on Bernard  and Glenn avenues. He would  like to have some instruction from  the council respecting the matter.  He advocated giving one man the  privilege of cleaning up the streets.  Aid. Millie raised some opposition to Aid. Blackwood taking the  hay. He doubted the legality of  an alderman doing this.  Aid. Blackwood, however, claimed that any man had a right to the  hay in front of his own property.  And moreover he had found that  if men were put on to but the grass  it was left in a very ragged condition. He wanted to see the work  done in a workmanlike manner.  It was finally left with Aid. Copeland to see that the grass was cut.  Mr, C. Clement waited on the  council with a complaint r. specting  a charge for street watering. He  had been charged with 50 feet on  Water street where no watering  had been done. Besides he was  the only person there and did not  want it.  He was advised to pay the account and leave the matter with  the city clerk to adjust.  Aid. Millie asked why the water  cart did not make its rounds on  Sunday. It was just as necessary  as any other day.  Aid. Taylor protested against having tha  sprinkler Drought out on Sunday.  A grant to tbe park committee waa  made in the following resolution : " That  a grant of $1,000 be given to the park  committee for the purpose of clearing and  levelling a portion of the park for a recre.  ation ground." Thia, it waa mentioned  was the second grant this year, making  $2,000 in all.  Aid. Taylor propoaed that a grant of  $1,000 be given to the publicity committee  of the Board of Trade. Speaking upon  the matter he aaid that until the council  could get their assessment completed for  the present year the finance committee  did not feel justified in making any larger  grant. The expenses to be met this year  ware ao very much higher than last. If,  however, when the council knew what ths  city'a revenue would be, and the financea  would warrant it, the grant might be sup.  plemented by a further amount.  Aid. Sutherland aaid the committee had  gone very carefully into the matter but  had found it impoaaibla to make a larger  grant. There waa a very large increase in  the demands upon the taxes this year,  The increase in two items alone represented half the total taxation of last year. The  school appropriation would be $6,000  more and the charge for interest and sinking fund on debentures would be $7,000  more. There was a number of other itema  but these would give some idea of the  increased nceda for the present year.  Mayor Jonea said the Board of Trade  would be meeting next week and it would  be well for the finance committee to be  there and go into these matters of finance.  Aid. Millie said he had supported the  resolution to levy a rate of one mill for  publicity purpoaea but he had not been  aware of the condition of the city'a financea  for the year. He thought some of the  large tax-payers who had signed the petition would think the taxea high enough  when they got their tax notices.  The resolution waa carried unanimously.  Aid. Taylor introduced a discussion on  the subject of borrowing money for park  improvements. If they could get a good  aum it might be possible to put the park  into shape but very little could be done  with " driblets."  Aid. Sutherland aaid they could find no  authority for borrowing money for such a  purpose, but he had recently noticed that  the city of Fernie had put through a bylaw borrowing money to improve their  park. It was decided to look into the  matter.  The matter of lending the city's accumulated ainking fund waa also mentioned.  Aid. Taylor aaid they had power to do so  now and were open for applications. There  was about $18,000 available and to lend it  out in that way would make a difference  of about $300 a year over keeping it in  ths bank.  Brisk Sale of Lakeside  Kelowna'a  New  Residential  District in Active Demand  Mr. F. R. E. DeHart, who is acting as local representative for the  Grand Pacific Land Co., of Win  nipeg, owners of Lakeside, reports  sales of this splendid property that  ate creating a new record in local  realty activities.  The citizens of Kelowna and  district have shown great interest  in the property. Their confidence  in Kelowna's future is thoroughly  gratifying to the men responsible  for interesting outside capital in the  ' orchard city."  The fact that Lalcea.de offera about the  only desirable residential property with  lake frontage, the announcement by the  C.N.R. of a depot aite on North Ellia street.  the undoubted trend of buaineaa north on  thia highway, and the exceptional attractive  park-like layout of the property haa appealed very strongly to local inveatora.  Mr. DeHart statea that there waa cdi-  aiderable delav ia making a aurvey becauae  of the winding road a and other attractive  frat urea, and there waa a further delay  at the company'a headquartera because of  the elaborate nature of the literature they  are uaing. I'he property haa not, therefore, been advertiaed in the eaat until now.  An aggreaaive campaign ia being atarted  thia week, and papera all over the continent will be carrying Kelowna'a message  to their thousanda of readers.  Penticton Favors  Lowering of Lake  Other towns in the valley are  evidently taking up strongly the  question of lowering the lake, and  considerable opposition is being  raised to the action of the government in ordering the work of  dredging the river to cease. Penticton, at its last Board of Trade  ti.eeting passed a resolution favoring the continuance of the work.  Speaking in support of the resolution passed by the Conservative  Association with reference to lowering Okanagan Lake by three feet,  Mr. W. T. Shatford said it was the  result of petitions presented to the  Water Commissioners at their sitting in Vernon, which were inaccurate and misleading Dredging  of the Okanagan river would make  it navigable for small steamers. It  would prevent floods and give  thousands of acres of reclaimed  lands to municipalities on the lake.  Summerland, Kelowna and towns  to the south had been communicated with, and the scheme favored.  Eminent authorities had assured  them that no lock was necessary.  Dredging; had proceeded for three  years and the value of the work  was proved in the improvement to  Kelowna. He remembered when  the hotel had to be approached by  boat. Kaleden had to team in all  necessaries thirty to forty miles,  whereas if the river were made  navigable these goods could be  sent down by boat. He strongly  advised the Board of Trade to support the resolution.  A general debate arose on the  resolution, the majority being in  favor. It was felt that the general  interests of the valley should not be  set aside, as one member expressed it, "for the sake of one land  owner who did not wish to see his  only Cottonwood tree left high and  dry."  The resolution was carried unanimously.  Items from Ellison  tFrom nur own corr..pontfent)  The final meeting of the Whelan  Sunday-school picnic committee is  to be held at the home of Mr.  C. H. Geen on the 15th inst. At  the meeting held on the 8th, several suggestions were made as to  the most desirable place for holding a picnic this year, the one  meeting with the most favor being  that it be held at Oceola and the  boat and scow chartered for a trip  up Woods lake and through the  canal, which was so thoroughly  enjoyed by all who took part in the  picnic held at Oceola two years  ago. The date of the picnic was  another agitated point, the Ist of  July seeming to be the most suitable for all. These matters it is  hoped will be all finally settled  Saturday evening, and we feel assured that wherever it is held it  will be a most enjoyable event.  Forecast of Programme  For Irrigation  Convention  Volunteers Wanted to Billet  Delegates  " The Official Call," in connection with the sixth annual convention of the Western Canada Irrigation Association, which will be held  at Kelowna, August 13th, 14th 15th  and 16th, next, is just off the press  and indicates from its outline of  speakers and entertainment, a programme of more than usual attractiveness. " The Call " this year includes the Tentative Programme,  from which we quote :-  " Arrangements have been made  with the following well-known experts, who will address the meeting :- E. McQueen Gray, Foreign  Secretary, National Irrigation Congress, University of New Mexico,  Albuquerque. " Foreign Government Reclamation " (with special  reference to Canada). Professor  Alfred Atkinson, Montana Agricultural College & Experimental  Station, Bozeman, Montana : " The  Irrigation of Alfalfa." N. E. Webster, New York City : " Irrigation  Finance." William Pearce, Dept.  of Natural Resources, C.P.R., Calgary : " Comments on Irrigation  and Forestry as Result of Observations on a Trip Through Egypt,  Sudan, India, China, Burma, Ceylon, Java, Australia, Tasmania, New  Zealand, the Philippines, Korea,  Japan, etc." M. L Dean, Montana  State Board of Horticulture, Missoula : " Apple Culture and the  Baldwin Spot." Prof. C. I. Lewis,  State Agricultural College, Corv-  allis, Oregon : " The Relation of  Irrigation to Fruit Growing." F. H.  Peters, Dominion Commissioner of  Irrigation, Calgary, " The Proper  Duty of Water and Necessary Irrigating Head in Western Canada."  A. E. Ashcroft, Chief Engineer,  White Valley I. & P.

Dennis, Assistant to the  President, C.P.R.; A. S.Dawson, in  charge of irrigation for the railway,  etc. It is also announced that Dr.  Samuel Fortier, who is recognised  today as one of the foremost irrigation experts in the United States,  will be present and address the  assembly."  The above list of speakers includes many names of continental  repute, and at no previous meeting of the association has such a  comprehensive and well balanced  ptogram been presented. From  present indications, the Kelowna  convention will be the biggest and  best in the history of the organization.  The local committee consisting  of Aid. Sutherland representing the  city, Messrs. Kerr and Wollaston  representing the Board of Trade  and Dr. Dickson as local secretary  is doing its utmost to provide an  interesting programme of excursions and entertainment. The cordial support and co-operation already promised by the business  men and citizens of Kelowna, is  most encouraging, and as a result  of the convention, it is thought that  Kelowna will get one of the biggest  boosts in the way of publicity that  she has ever known. Kelowna has  the goods to show, and wants to  show them to the best advantage;  results are sure to follow quickly.  Owing to the lack of adequate  hotel accomodation, necessary for  the 150 or 200 delegates expected  and the inability of the C, P. R. to  supply sleeping cars at that season  of the year, the problem of housing  our guests is a serious one.  It would be a very material assistance to those looking after the  entertainment of the delegates, if  citizens who can offer sleeping accomodation for one or more delegates, from August 13th to 16th,  will notify the local secretary,  Dr.  Rutland News  From our own correapondent  Mrs. Goodrich left Wednesday  morning on a visit to the coast.  A special school meeting ia  called for Tuesday evening, 18th  inst., at 8 p.m. in small school  house to ratify the agreement by  the trustees for the purchase of the  Porter lot.

The necessity for a telephone  service is much in evidence.  Mr. Seeley's peach trees give  promise of a heavy yield, also his  young apple trees, which are just  coming into bearing.  Mr. H. Chaplin has just finished  harvesting a heavy crop of alfalfa.  His fine strawberries are much in  demand, and both crops are in  excellent condition.  Dr. J. G. McNaughton, of Kelow-  na, was here on Sunday last being  called to attend Mr. Goodacre who  was seriously ill, but of whose improvement in health we shall be  glad to hear.  Provincial Grand Master  Visits Local Masonic Lodge  The local Masonic Lodge was  honored on Friday last by the  official visit of the Grand Master  of British Columbia, M. W. Bro. F.  J. Burd of Vancouverwho was accompanied by M. W. Bro. H. N.  Rich P. G. M. and R. W. Bro. G.  L. Parker.  The Grand Officers were welcomed to St. George's Lodge, by  W. Bro. Knox in the ancient ceremonial manner. The Grand Master expressed himself in eulogistic  terms regarding the conduct of the  business and welfare of the lodge.  A banquet was given in the evening in honor of the distinguished  visitors, when the usual toasts and  responses and the excellence of  the fare provided made the even-  i-g pass all too rapidly.      asasi   Messrs. P. Burns & Co. moved  moved into their new premises this  week. a  The fire brigade were called out  Thursday night last to a fire at the  old cannery building on Abbot! St.  A portion of the building, which  was unoccupied was considerably  damaged before the blaze was put  out. It is the property of Captain  Brush. No cause of the fire has  been discovered.  HARVEY-On Friday May 31st,  at South Okanagan, to the wife  of G. C. R. Harvey, a son.  Dickson, at an early date, so that  all who come may be suitably provided for.  Dr. Dickson's office is in the  Raymer Block, next to that of Mr.  DeHart, or a communication addressed to Box 410 will reach him.  Okanogan Centre  (From our own correspondent)  Mr. P. N. P. Griess is busy erecting a new post and wire fence on  the side of his property adjoining  the main road through to Glenmore valley.  J. Lidstone has been placed in  charge of the Lennox orchard for  the summer by J. Metcalfe, who  has the contract to take care of  this orchard for the season.  Fleetwood Wilson, the recent  purchaser of the old McAuley property at Carr's Landing from G. M.  Gibson, is having a handsome  bungalow erected. Messrs. Gleed  and Hare are the contractors.  The constant dry weather is  proving very trying on crops,  making continued irrigation necessary. A good rain now would  indeed be welcome and beneficial.  Mosquitoes are unusually prevalent this vear, and about a month  later than the average year in  making their first appearance.  We are pleased to be able to  state that H. H. Evans, who wns  taken to the Kelowna hospital  some two weeks ago with rheumatic fever, is now convalescent and  able to return to his dulies fs  foreman on the Rainbow ranch.  Mr. Evans contemplates a ti tp (o  the Old Country in the fall.  A sign has been placed by the  government where the Alvaston  branch road leads away from the  Vernon-Kelowna highway. Ihis  ii an act which will be appreciated  by all who travel on this road,  especially motorists, who used to  experience considerable difficulty  is finding which road to take at  this junction.  A very interesting social affair  took place on Tuesday evening,  the 4th inst., when the celebration  of the silver wedding of Mr. and  Mrs. T. W. Lidstone took place at  their home.",ong the old Vernon  road. Friends and relatives gathered around and wilh song, recitations and music, a very enjoyable  evening was spent by all. Mr. and  Mrs. Lidstone were the recipients  of many hearty congratulations  upon the twenty-fifth anniversary  of their wedding day.  The Okanagan Centre T.nr.is  Club having been duly fornu d, a  committee was appointed to s ze  up the different courts in and mar  Kelowna, with the result that a  clay court, similar to one at Dclie-  vue, south Kelowna, was the one  decided would be best. Steps  were then taken to lay of. the  ground, a site having been chosen  adjoining the dancing platform  near the lake front, A fence has  been erected and ihe clay floor  laid. This now leaves little to be  done and the members o( ihe  tennis club hope to have ihe court  completed by the end of next  week. There are quite a number  of tennis enthusiasts in the d'strict  and a good strong club has been  formed.  A meeting was held in the W. st-  bury Hall on Saturday, the 8th  inst., of the committees in charge  of the Dominion Day celebrations  to be held at Okanagan Centre,  The finance committee reported  the subscriptions well in hand and  the sports and decoration committees had their plans and arrangements matured which, wilh slight  alterations, were adopted. 1 he  prospects for a splendid day  are of the best. Ample provision  is being made for refreshments (or  the day, the Grand View Hotel  serving a hot dinner whilst ice  cream and soft drink booths will  be erected on the grounds.  The C.N.R. survey parly in  charge of A. E. Ashcroft, have now  completed the running of the preliminary and location lines for the  Vernon-Kelowna railway, the parly  having now again moved into the  field between Kamloops and Vernon. The right of way has been  purchased through Mr. P. Williams'  ranch for the main line and also  for a siding, the intention being to  establish a station at this point.  Total right of way purchased was  about 13 acres, which Mr. Williams  sold at the rate of $200 per acre.  The CN.R. also purchased from  S. Edwards and A. Chatlerton 6  acres each. 1 his land is in meadow and level and the price paid  in the neighbourhood of $250 acre. The Orchard City Record.

British  Columbia  Fruit   Growers'   Association  The British Columbia Fruit Growers Association, although established quite recently, has achieved  many reforms of the greatest value  lo ihe fruit industry, notably in the  matter of freight rates and shipping facilities generally. It is only  indeed by combination in a well  organized manner that such  refotmation can be accomplished  Every fruitgrower should make it  his way to join hands with those  from othet orchard districts, in order to make possible some efficient  scheme of marketing their product,  which is one ol the most important  aims of the association.  1 he following letter has been addressed by the secretary to the  fruitgrowers and farmers of the  d s'ricl :���-  VictOI ia B.C,  IU Members of Farmers' Inatituiea:  Institute members ate invited lo  become members of the British (  lumbia Fruit Growers' Association  for the year of 1912.  Membership offers you the fol  lowing advantages :  1. Fruit crop nnd vegetable  crop reports cohering British Columbia and those Canadian and  American sections which supply  the same markets in competition  with British Columbia. These reports will be issusd monthly during ihe season. For British Columbia the reports of the provincial  crops and labor commissioner, who  was appointed on the representations of this association, will serve  as a basis. The British Columbia  Markets Commissioner will cover  the North Western Stales, wl 'ch  create the greater patt of the competition we have to meet.  2. Market reports will be issued  weekly during the shipping season.  The market commissioner is empowered to complete the necessary,  organization on the prairies to  keep in touch with all the principal fruit consuming points each day.  These repot Is sent lo our members by mail will provide an immense amount of practical information of use not only lo present  shippers to whom it is almost indispensable, but also to the pros-  pective shippers or members of  shipping associations.  We cannot over-emphasize the  great need of a knowledge of market conditions by every fruit grower. 1 he business is an intricate  one nnd success in it depends on  a knowledge of, and attention to  many fine points not only in growing but in marketing as well.  3. The annual teport just Issued, a publication of 120 pages,  covets many impottant in glowing  and marketing fruit; every grower should have one. 1 hey are  supplied only to members, ns the  number printed is limited.  4. The association has secured  some low quotations on spraying  materials and fruit wrapping paper.  Some members are saving considerable sums by taking advantage  of this feature ol association membership.  5. I In'; association is the only  provincial organization devoted to  the interests of (ruitgrowets. It is  getting continued increased support from the frttil growers because  it is getting actual results in betlet  transportation rates and service, In  in mote and belter work (or lite  fruit industry on the part of ihe  Dominion and Provincial Governments, and in other ways improving conditions surrounding the  fruit grower.  One of the objects of lite association is to promote ihe better or-  ganiz t on of fruit growers.  Every fruit grower should make  use of the association. You are  invited to bring before the association the problems and difficulties  that are hampering the industry.  The association will investigate and  il possible secure a remedy. The  association will aid you to organize successfully.  The membership fee is $1 per  annum. This amount pays th  association for only part of th  expense of the service rendered its  members. The provincial government provides a grant for the support of the association believing it  to be doing good work.  We hope that you will join the  association and make use of it as  fully as you can, and in turn by  your support make the association  bigger and more representative  and more able to get things done  for the fruitgrower.

The Kelowna boys seemed to be  having their day out, and could do  nothing wrong, llie passing especially being excellent. On the other  hand Vernon seemed to be dogged  by a fateful ill-luck. On both sides  the play was very clean, and some  clever work was shown.  The first goal went up just five  minutes after the start, and was  put through after a scrimage by  C. McMillan, followed almost immediately bv an equaliser by Vernon, in whose part of the field  most of the game during the first  quarter took place.  The second quarter showed  some even playing, but was marked by some excellent runs by Kennedy, the Kelowna captain, who  led ihe Vernon boys up the field  time after time. However, Vernon scored twice to Kelowna'a  once, which put the score at 4 3,  and indicated some excitement to  come, which arrived in the course  of the third quarter when Kelowna  did all the work and put in four  goals. Howard Paul and "Beano"  McLean put in some fine work in  this quarter, and both appear to  be masters of the game. Carlyle  is also a player of merit but seemed to be off his game, missing a  chance to score which certainly  should have made the final score 11.  It waa quite expected that Vernon would rally in the last quarter,  but this they failed to do. No  doubt rests on the fact that but for  Kelowna'a excellent goal keeper,  the score would have been different from what it was, and although  the home boya captured the point  easily it is probable they will have  to go some to get another when  ihey play the return match at Ver-  non on June 19th.

It is estimated that $4,000  will have to be raised, of which  the provincial government will  contribute $ 1,000.

[Tki.rs.iMf. June II  Tha Orchard City Record  IK TONGUE  '   OF  fluoh diroot Imitation, however, la  arhapi Ism Important than the  aaaage ol many Scottish word, and  braaea Into English use, a prooeaa  |rgely fostered of late by some of the  papera. Within Scotland Itaelf  \t newapaper preaa la more Scottish  respect of language than It waa a  barter of a century ago; and It la  fear that few writers have now  such dread of allowing an occasional  jcottlolsm to slip from their pen. The  ding weekly papers have long  hade a special feature of a Scottish  olumn In prose or verse, and have  bereby done much to support the  lumbler levels of a vernacular literature. In special cases these columns  |re even valuable for the number of  al words and expressions they cou-  Jatn, and their frequent lack of  Iterary merit Is thus atoned for by  pelr linguistic worth.    On the other  ad, It must be said that the news-  btpara have not always been suffl-  ���ently careful to distinguish the  {���macular from the vulgar, and have  '���lped to lower the popular taste In  his respect  j Taken at Its best, the literary stand-  pg of Scottish Is thus In many ways  satisfactory one, and In some rejects has been so high that certain  Imitations attaching to it are apt to  le overlooked. At the most, no higher  losltlon can be claimed for it than  pat of a dialect,  tho  use of  which  confined to certain spheres, ehlef-  Uiobs  which have  the closest  re-  Jltlon  to common  everyday   life and  |aought.    There  Is  a  great  contrast  ere,  If  we  look   back   to  the  days  S/hen Scottish was a real national  ongue, when It was not In any way  :ubordlnate to English, but stood side  ly side with It, as Portuguese with  tpanlsh, or Swedish with Danish. Re-  ore it can In any way recover its old  losltlon It must be cultivated for  ilgher purposes than It has been In  'eceut times. It Is not enough to  ise it, however correctly or effective-  y, for the dialogue portions of tales  r novels, while all the narrative and  escriptlve parts are lu English. It  I Is not even enough to employ It In  poetry, whether of it light or serious  kind; for poetic diction is a thing by  Itself, and affords no test of the  practical value of a language. Of  *ny such serious use of the Scottish  |tongue, however, there are at present  no Indications.  Kitchener n British Prisoner  Kitchener'^ ability In disguising  himself has given rise to many stories  true and otherwise, of this famous  soldier. The following Incident was  told by one who served with the  Essex Regiment In a campaign  against the Dervishes.  "I was acting curporal of the guard  I over a large number of 'gentlemen of  [the    desert'    whom    we    hud    taken  i prisoners.    In    tbe    course    of    my  rounds, n captive within the tent drew  my attention, anil I was surprised to  hear   In   good   Kngilsh   the   request,  'Corporal, I wIbIi to get out of this.'  I, of course, reported the occurrence  to the Sergeant of the Guard, only to  be met with the cult reply, 'let tbe  fool stay where be Is.'  I continued my rounds and was  again met with tbe request. Again  I reported the mutter and this time  the heply was as curt but a bit  stronger, so I went on my rounds  again.  As I passed tbe spot this time the  voice from within said, 'Say, Corporal,  you are of the Essex Regiment?' I  answered thut I wus and the prisoner  said, 'Well, tell Mr. U. that I want to  speak to him.'  'What name?' I queried. 'Kitchener,'  came the reply, uud 1 at once reported  accordingly to the Sergeant. He Immediately mude for The prisoner's  quarters aud I shall never forget  thut meeting.

As a  matter of fact, It Is the Royal Palaoe  lu Pekln which le the real Forbidden  City and from which foreigners, except on very special occasions, are  rigidly excluded.

Well-known English  Writer.  "I have been tr/lng all my life to  like Scotsmen," said Charles Lamb,  "and am obliged to desist from the  experiment In despair." There are  still probably a few people who secretly or openly harbour Blmllar antipathetic feelluga towards the natives of Caledonia, but their number  le decreasing dally. It would hardly  he correot to say that the Scots are  universally popular. Popularity Is  usually the product of leisure and  luxury, and Is seldom accorded to  tboss who have had little opportunity for the cultivation of the graces  and external beauties of life. For  generations the Scots have been held  fast In the grip of uncompromising  realities. The poverty of the country, with Its long stretches of bleak  but beautiful moorland: tbe "Saw-  bath gloom" which ao long relgued  over the Lowlands, combined with  the "Celtic gloom" permeating every  "distant shieling" In the Highlands,  has not been conducive to the development of a spirit of gaiety and  charm. But what they hnve lost in  one way they have gained In another.  It la this very schooling In "strait  and narrow" ways which has given  the nation tbe grit and dogged determination It now possesses.  HUMOUR NORTH OF THE TWEED.  A sense of humor Is not now denied Scotsmen by tbe Sassenach. "A  Scotsman and therefore quick to see  the humor of things," was the recent  comment of so cosmopolitan a critic  as Mrs. Annie Besunt. What would  Sydney Smith say if he could have  beard It?  Meanness Is another charge which  seems to have been withdrawn In recent years. It probably arose tn the  first instance from the Scot'B necessity for economy. Brought up In a  country where money was unusually  scarce, It was difficulty for blm to  develop suddenly an open-handed  generosity. This fostered habit of  economy, brought about by circumstances, must be carefully distinguished from the merely mean desire  to hoard Great generosity of heart  Is ofteu found In the most economical person, while a certain cold selfishness uot Infrequently accompuu-  leB tbe most outrageous extravagance.  Another charge which has sometimes been levelled against the Scots  Is a luck of romance, but their history Is an ample refutation of this  charge. The Scotsman Is not sentimental, but he Is deeply romantic at  heart."  Twlxt Bull  and  Bear.

It Is,  In any event, a good story:  Two farm-hands, Lincoln used to  suy, w-ere set upon by a huge bull  while crossing a rocky field. One  managed to gain a tree. The other  took refuge lu a hole in the tree that  proved to have an exit In the rear.  The man who had chosen the hole  was no sooner In at one end than he  wus out at the other. With a bellow,  the bull made for blm. He turned  und again shot through the hole. The  bull once more bore down upon him,  and once more he was In and out of  bis  hole.  The strange pursuit kept up some  minutes. At first it mystified the  farm-hand up In the tree. Then It  angered  him.  "Hey," he shouted, "you Idiot! Why  don't you stay In the hole?"  The bull was daahlng from one end  of the hols to the other at great  speed, and the man was bobbing In  and out desperately. He beard, however, his comrade's shout, and found  time before his next brief disappearance to shout back:  "Idiot yourself! There's a bear  In tbe hole."  The Time of Long Sermons.  Those who like long sermons  should have lived lu tlie seventeenth  ceutury. The manner In which the  Rev. John Howe, Milliliter of Great  Torrlngton, In Devonshire, conducted Divine service on a public fast  day Is thus described by a contemporary: "Mr. Howa said thut upun  these occasions he began about ulne  In the morning with a prayer for  about a quarter of u hour, In wliich  be begged a blessing upon the work  of the day, and afterwards read uud  expounded a chapter or psalm, In  which he spent three-quarters of un  hour; then prayed for about an hour,  preached for another hcajr, aud  prayed for about half an hour. After  this he retired aud took some little  refreshment for ubout a quarter of  an huur (thu people singing ull tho  time) and then came Into tbe pulpit  uud prayed for another hour; and  gave them another sermon of about  an hour's length; and bo concluded  the service of the day ..."  From  Ueueratlou   tu   Generation.  Grandfather Hillings smiled covertly when Billings junior wondered  where Billings third, aged seveu, got  hlB " trlcklness." "If I didn't keep  my eyes open," said BllllngB Junior,  hotly, "Billy would outwit me every  time."  "This morning," he continued, "I  promised him a whipping to-night.  When the event came .off Just now,  he never flinched or yelled. 'Pluck  pure aud simple!' said I to myself,  mighty proud, for 1 wnsn't sparing  blm In the least. But that wasn't It  at' all," he concluded, In disgust  "The young rnscal had on three pairs  of trousers."  "As I remember It," observed  Grandfather Billings, reflectively,  "you used to Insert a small geography when a 'good sound one' was  dus you."  IHE SOIMI OF OIR VOICE  Experiments Support Contention That  Everyone lleurs His Own Voice  Differently From Others.  That a man does not hear hia own  voice as all tbe rest of tbe world  hears It Is shown by an interesting  experiment described by Dr. L. Laloy  In La Nature (Purls). Says this  writer:  "If a person records on a phonograph a few sentences pronounced by  himself, together with others by bis  frleudB, und causes the machine to reproduce these at the end of a brief  period, It generally happens that he  easily recognizes his friends' voices,  but not his own. On the other hand,  tbe frleuds recognize bis voice perfectly. This singular fact proves that  every one hears his own voice differently  from others.  "As Is remarked by Professor Ex-  neiMlic difference must lie in the  quality of tone. It must be remembered that one bears hia own voice  not only through the air, us do his  auditors, but across the solid parts  situated between the organs of speech  and' those of bearing. Tbe sound thus  produced has a different timbre frum  that conducted to the ear by air alone.  "We may ahow this as follows:  'i like the end of a wooden rod between the teeth and pronounce a  vowel coutlnuoualy. Let the other  end be alternately taken between the  teeth and released by another person,  who at the same time stops his ears.  The latter will find that every time  be seizes tbe rod in his teeth the  sound becomes stronger than when it  reaches his cur through air alone, aud  has u different quality. The experiment may be varied by applying a  wooden rod to the larynx of the person observed and touching It, from  time to time, to the observer's own  larynx. As in the preceding case, it  will be found that Its passage through  u solid body augments the ItnensKy  of the sound and modifies Its quality."  BOUND IN THE UNIVERSE.  We live aud move at the bottom  of an ocean of air, the earth's atmosphere One consequence of this is  thut every mechanical disturbance  starts waves of compression und rarefaction, which radiate out frum the  source, und, striking the drum of our  ear, muy (If of the right strength and  quality) cause lu us the sensation of  "sound." Among such sensations some  affect us merely as "noises"; In  others we recognize a more or less  well-defined "musical pitch," and  "toue quality," Physically the "noise"  differs] from the "musical note" In  thut the former is an irregular disturbance, while the latter Is periodic  and of definite frequency. Not thai  there Is any hard and fast line ot  dt'iiiai-katlon; a rapid succession ol  impulses, which separately would be  mere noises, muy Impress the ear with  ,i definite sense of pitch. Thus the  teeth of n saw, cutting In rapid sequence through a wooden board, produce a sound of definite pitch, thougli  lacking perhaps In musical quality  Or, again, a sharp noise of brlel  duration, proceeding from a point In  the neighbourhood of a series of equl-  distuut obstucles, such as a line ol  fence-rails, or a flight of stone steps,  produces upon the observer a sensation In which a lajore or less well-  defined pitch cau li�� recugulzed. The  explanation of this thenomenu Is that  the sound Is reflected back from each  feuce-rall in turn, and since It takes  time to travel, each echo reachs the  observer a trifle later than that from  tbe neighbouring rail.  To MnU Light In a Botlle.  A safe light for going snout at night  or where there are inflammable  materials, as Into a store-room, may  be mude ae follows: lake a long glass  bottle and put Into It a piece of phosphorus the size of a pea; upon this  pour pure olive oil heated to the  boiling point until this bottle Is about  one-third full and cork tightly. When  light Is needed take the cork out and  allow the air to enter, subsequently  it-corking. The empty space In the  bottle will then become luminous aud  give quite an effective light. If It becomes dim It can easily be revived  by uncorking tbe bottle for a few  seconds. One bottle will last a whole  whiter. Small bottles may also be prepared la this way and carried In the  pocket.  Snail but Strong.  The Katydid, which Is clusely allied  to the grasshopper fumlly, is something uf a hauler for Its avoirdupois.  Recently, an averuge looking specl-  meii was harneBSed to a kind of sledge  made by folding a piece of ordinary  uotepaper, and then loaded the sledge  with various articles. The Insect  proved able to draw, In addition to the  original paper, twelve puper Blieets  each three by four and a half inches,  a large acrew, two steel pens, a stoue  weighing two ounces, and three and  a half lead pencllB. Wheu the weight  became too heavy to draw otherwise  the katydid got Ub fore feet over the  edge of the table for a letter hold,  and on addition of another weight It  Increased the adhe 'jk power of Its  feet by moistening tha:u In Its mouth.  How Deserts are Formed  There Is a popular Idea that deserts  like tbe Sahara are the bottoms of  ancient seas which have been lifted  above their original elevation by geological forces. This notion Is an  erroneous one. It is absolutely certain, high authorities contend, that  the sands of all the great deserts have  been formed on the spot hy the disintegration of the solid rocks on which  they rest. Dessrt sands correspond  In all respects, so far as their mode of  origin Is concerned, to the dust and  sand that accumulates on our high  roads In summer, All deBerts arc  situated where the winds from the  ocean, before reaching them, arc exhausted of their moisture by passing  over mountains or across extensive  tracts ot land.

Since Darwin first suggested the  theory of evolution, scientists galore  have been studying along the same  liiifn, and man's origin Is being gradually pushed further and further  Into the remote ages. Reviewing the  remarkable discoveries of tbe last ten  yeara In Western Europe, Professor  MoGurdy shows that It is being gradually proved that the human race la as  old as any of the tailless apes, aud  probably had the same ancestors, The  oldest undisputed flint implements  [late from the Upper Miocene period  of geology; the oldest human bone,  the Jaw or "Homo heldelbsrgenals,  from near the beginning of the  TJuarternary. Primitive man, therefore, must have lived in Western  Europe during the entire Glacial  period, and developed Into "Homo  prtmlgeulus," low in stature and  robuBt, with abort, stout arms und  legs --- much like the Enkimo of today, A more Intellectual race, probably from tlie East, appeared In tbe  Upper Quartern a ry, or at least Uit.uoO  years ago. This people, "Homo atirig-  uacenslM," sculptured and frescoed tho  walla of the caverns and their own  Implement*, and their descendants,  who must have flourished more than  10,000 years ago, introduced tbe rudiments of writing. Tlie negroid people  probably came into Western Europe  Boon after. Professor Kluatscb finds  "Home prlinigenlus" to bo closely related to the gorilla of Africa, and  "Homo aurignacen: :s" to resemble  more nearly the chlmpanace of Asia.  ('nacre c PCUCC Posts  The Increasing cost of timber has  resulted In more spirited search for  efficient substitutes. One Inventor,  realising the growing popularity of  ferro-coneretej has turned his endeavours into this channel with a view  io effecting the desired result, and has  achieved distinct success. The posts  made from this material are stated  to he extremely durable and far  superior lo those or wood. The cost  averages about rorty cents per yard;  but lu this connection It Is as well to  point out thai the cost Is governed hy  geographical si I nation, Inasmuch as  the transportation charges for posts  >f this denrrlptioii, or for manufacturing (hem on the spot after the  materials have been brought In, arc  heavier than for those of wood under  certain conditions. At tlu> same time,  If the materials are obtainable ou the  spot the fence enn be built exceedingly cheaply; and when It is pointed  out (hat Ihe durability of a ferroconcrete post Is from five to ten  limes that of limber, according aa  ilie wood Is preserved with creosote  oi otherwise, II will be seen that ihe  former has overwhelming advantage!  in those districts "vhero wood Ih not  readily obtainable % 'hree of the g.'eat  British railway companies have erected fence-posts of this material, and  are stated to be eminently satisfied  with tho same; while it hoe also been  used for gradient-posts and gate-  parti to oroaalnjga.
