 Kdotima  VOL. IV.   NO. 27.  KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY,  MAY 30, 1912.  $1.50 Per Annum.  Meeting of  City Council  Board' of Trade asks Council  to Levy Special Rate for  Publicity Purposes  The council met as usual Monday, the only absentee being His  Worship the Mayor, Aid. Copeland  presiding in his place.  The following accounts were  passed for payment:���  Joe Alexander,   10 days removing  fences on Pendozi street 30.00  Joe Barahovitz           ditto           ��� 30.00  Sam Canaja, 9 days   ditto 27.00  Myke Merick, 9 days ditto 27,00  Crane Co., 10 hydranta         -       - 297.00  C.P.R., freight on valves      -       - 3.00   corporation cocks- 1.57  Claude Jamea, 2 daya special police 6.00  Joe Cowan                         ditto     ��� 6.00  Jas. Alexander, 9 days      ditto      . 27.00  Board of Works paysheet  for two  weeks ending May 25   -       .1221.50  Aid. Blackwood drew attention  to an error in the accounts for  cleaning up the nuisance grounds.  Two of these had appeared in the  minutes as $60 which should have  been only $30. Ihe clerk explained that when the accounts were  handed to him the time only was  recorded and he understood that  the men had been working with  teams. Upon asking Aid. Blackwood for further particulars he  was informed that the men had  not supplied teams, whereupon  the accounts were paid for $30  each only.  Aid. Taylor still maintained his  objection to the committee incurring ao large an expense for work  which should have been done by  the former scavenger. As chairman of the finance committee he  would refer back to the council the  accounts of David Mills, James  Munro, and D. McMillan.  This raised some discussion in  which most of the aldermen join*  , "d. Aid. Blackwood said that  when the matter of cleaning up the  nuisance grounds was first brought  up in the council he had spoken to  the scavenger about it, and had  been told that one team for a day  or two would be no use as the  place was in such a bad condition.  Upon receiving this information he  had consulted the mayor, who had  advised him to go ahead and get  the place put into proper shape,  and thia he had done. He did not  see how the committee could have  done anything else under the circumstances.  Aid. Taylor drew attention to a  clause of the health by-law which  required the contents of the privy  boxes to be mixed with a sufficient  quantity of dry earth or ashes to  keep them in a sanitary condition.  He would like to know if anything  had ever been done to enforce  this.  The  following  letter  was  read  from the secretary of the Board  of  Trade:  Gentlemen,      n  At the last meeting of the Board  in April the following resolution  was passed, after a good deal of  discussion : "That the Board is of  the opinion that the city council  should levy a rate of one mill for  publicity purposes, the proceeds to  be handed to the publicity committee to be used at their discretion." I should be glad to hear if  this resolution ia likely to meet with  the attention required this year.  Yours truly,  G. A. FISHER.  Aid. Sulherluud said he understood a committee of the Board of  Trade had since been appointed to  wait on the council on this matter.  He thought it would be well to  hear their views before proceeding  further. He proposed that this  committee be invited to meet a  committee of the council, as it waa  a matter that demanded immediate attention.  A resolution was passed tlint  this meeting take place Thursday  morning at 10 a.m.  A letter was read from the Board  of Railway Commissioners enclosing an order of the Board defining  the boundaries of the Dominion  Express Co.'s delivery service,  which they are about to establish  in the city.   The order read:  " That nntil further  ordered   by  . the Board, the tolls of the  Dominion Express Company shall include  the delivery of express freight by  the said company or its agent, in  those streets and avenues, reasonably passable by express wagons,  in that portion of the City of Kelowna bounded by the following  thoroughfares, and on the further  side of the said thoroughlares,  namely : On the north by Bemard  avenue, on the east by Ellis street,  on the south by Eli avenue and on  the west by Abbott street."  Comment was made upon the  smallness of the area included by  these limits.  Aid. Millie suggested that some  effort be made to induce the C. P.  R. to remove the old shed on the  wharf which was practically destroyed by fire some time ago. He  said it was not only dangerous but  was an eye-sore in such a prominent place and a bad advertisement for the city.  It was decided to ask the building inspector to examine the shed  and report to the council.  A resolution was passed endorsing the resolution passed by the  Board of Trade calling upon the  government to continue the work  of dredging in the Okanagan river.  Aid. Copeland reported that the  Board of Works had now completed the gravelling of Ellis street, and  wished the other members of the  Board ol Works lo meet with him  lo decide upon the next work to  be undertaken. He would like to  see Harvey avenue gravelled from  Ethel street lo the city limits.  Aid. .Sutherland congratulated  the board upon the work done on  Ethel stteet, which, he said, wns  the best piece of road work yet  done in the cily.  Aid. Copeland reported that the  council had been asked by the  Okanagan Telephone Co., to fix a  standard distance from the property line on the streets at which  they could erect poles.  The matter was discussed at  some length and various suggestions offered.  Aid. Taylor favored putting the  poles close to the edge of the sidewalk, aa much of the road was  useless when poles were placed  out into the street. At any rate he  thought it would be a mistake to  fix upon any set distance as streets  varied and conditions were not  always the same.  Aid. Millie was opposed to giving any written permission as to  the placing of poles as it might be  used against the citv at some future  time. It might be a little inconvenient for the Telephone Company to  come to the city respecting every  line of poles, but he thought it better to have it that way at present.  It was finally decided to leave  the matter in the hands of the  Board of Works.  The Board of Works were also  authorized to move the sidewalk on  the north side of Bernard avenue  between Ellis and Richter streets  out to the property line, as at present it interfered with the placing  of the telephone poles, which were  to be moved to the edge of the  sidewalk.  The discussion on the placing of  poles brought up again the much  debated matter of leaving a space  between the property line nnd the  sidewalk.  Aid. Blackwood favored the idea  as leaving narrower roads which  the council would find cheaper to  keep up,  Aid. Taylor said there had been  a strong feeling lately in favor of  wide roads, but now they were  talking about making them narrower.  Aid. Copeland thought the council would probably find il cheaper  to keep up a wide road as the  traffic all in one place had a tendency to cut up the roads too much.  The problem of restoring the  connection in the irrigation system  broken by the city in removing the  old wooden flume along Richter  street when putting in the cement  sidewalk was brought up by Aid.  Copeland who reported that they  had been all ready to go ahead  with the scheme of running a  flume down Harvey avenue, but  the residents there had kicked.  Ihey were willing to have it go  down the back of their lots but  objected to having it on the street.  Aid. Copeland suggested that it  might be cheaper for the council  to give the few people who require  the water a special rate on city  water rather than replace the flume.  Mr. G. C. Rose, however, who  is one of the interested parties,  said it was nonsense to think of  watering three acres wilh city water.  As shoeing how important the  mattef was he said he had rented  his place this year but the absence  of irrigation water had interfered  with the arrangement. He thought  the council were taking a very  wrong attitude on the question. It  was altogether premature to think  of doing away with the irrigation  system, which was very necessary  to a great many people. It was  quite impossible to pump water to  irrigate the whole town, and absurd  to think of it. Ihe present system,  if it were properly handled, might  be made a valuable asset to the  city. He resented the antagonistic  tone in which the council discussed  the question. If the citv allowed  the present system to lapse they  would be making a great mistake  and would be up against a problem  of having no water lo make the  city look attractive.  Aid. Taylor, who had suggested  that the council's easiest way out  of the difficulty was to put back  the old flume nnd then condemn  it, aaid the flume should have been  condemned before.  Aid. Sutherland pointed out the  council were not antagonistic to  the water users as they had already  given considerable financial assist-  ance towards the suppo.t of the  irrigation system.  It was decided that the Board of  Works should make a careful inspection of the flume to decide  what should be done.  Mr. G. A. Fisher secretary of the  Board of Trade, handed iu to the  council correspondence in connection with the coming irrigation  convention, staling that the Board  had discharged their special committee nnd referred the matter to  the council.  Alii. Sutherland said it would be  necessary for the council to take  in hand the arrangements for the  convention which was to be held  on August 13, 14, 15 and It), and  that they would have to appoint a  local secretary who would be paid  uy the council. Dr. Dickson had  been mentioned very suitable as he  was much interested in irrigation  matters.  T he Association were making a  grant to the city of $500 towards  the expense, and he estimated  that the city would need to provide  another $1,000.  Aid. Sutherland undertook to  interview .Dr. Dickson on the subject of his appointment.  The meeting then adjourned.  Important Business Change  A notable business deal has been  consummated this week by which  Mr. Albert W. Barber acquires the  grocery business of Messrs. Biggin  and Poole. As will be seen by a  reference to the advertisement in  this issue the transfer takes place  Saturday. Mr. Barber is a young  man of wide experience in the  trade and is taking the lines with  an energy which promises success  for himself and satisfactory business relations for his customers.  The opening day is to be marked  by reducing by one-half the price of  ice cream in the elegant cafe at the  rear of the store.  Dr. W. Wansborough Jones of  South Okanagan passed through  Kelowna Wednesday on his way  to the Old Country, where he is  going for an extended visit.  A meeting of the Kelowna Poultry and Pet Stock Association is  called for Saturday next, June Ist  at 2.30 in Messrs. Rattenbury &  Williams office. All persons interested are invited to attend.  The Kelowna baseball team  which beat Armstrong on Friday,  played Vernon in another league  game on Wednesday at Vernon,  winning after a good game by I 3  runs to 6.  The receipts Irom the Chinese  head tax tliis year will be n million  dollars greater than last year. The  singular feature about this increase  in revenue is that there has been  no increase in the number of Chinese landing at Canadian ports.  It will be remembered that the conditions undet which Chinese were  admitted at British Columbia ports  were the subject of an investigation last year.  Victoria Day  Sports and Races  Fine  Weather   Favors   Good  Day's Sport  The committe in charge of the  annual Victoria Day sports were  favored with an exceptionally fine  day last Friday, and on the whole  the day's program was one of the  best yet held. The attendance at  the foot races in the morning was  small, and the opinion was freely  expressed that it might be more  convenient in future to sandwich  in such events between the house  races. It is Certainly a matter for  some surprise that this part of the  program does not receive better  support. One would think that  between the gymnasium, the bov  scouts, and the various athletic  clubs in and around the city, a  better showing could be made.  The racing iu the afternoon,however, with the baseball and the  football matches, drew a fairly  large crowd, and they were well  rewarded hy some capital sport.  financially, too, we understand  the day was a success, the takings  being probably sufficient to wipe  off a deficit wliich has been outstanding since the fall fair.  The   results   of   the   morning's  events were as follows :���  Boys' 75-yd. race (15 yr. and und.)  1 George Curts  2 lorn Duggan  Boys' 50yd. Race (10 and under)  1 Wm. McGibbon  2 W. Raymer  Girls' 50-yd. Race (15 and under)  1 Dorothy Leckie  2 Nettie Harvey  Girls' 50-yd. Race (10 and under)  1 Alice Pfyffer  2 Constance Gillard  Three-legged Race  1 G. Curts and C. McPhee  2 R. Leckie and T. Duggan  Sack Race  1 George Swordy  2 C. Pfyffer  100-yd. Race  1 Ray Ritchie  2 Richard Turner  220-yard Race  1 Richard Turner  2 Ray Ritchie  440-yard Race  1 Richard Turner  2 Jack Burt.  HORSE  RACES  The principle event in the afternoon races was the Free-for-All for  which there were three starters.  The race was decided in two  heats, Aid. Copeland's " Bessie R "  winning first place and " Darkie "  second each time.  The first heat in the 2.28 Half-  Mile showed Johnson's " Cora  Brown " first with " Darkie " second  the second heat ending in the Ml) e  order.  The Green Trot added as an  extra turn to the program, gave Mr.  Dickinson's " Membrino " a chance  to distinguish himself, winning  easily the two heats, with " Don  Zambria" second and " Souris, jr."  third each time.  " Senator Warner" and his last  year's rider Sautelle, appeared in  the half-mile race, beating Fullers'  " Don E " in two heats.  The Half-Mile Pony Race had  three entries and resulted: Ist  " Colonel I Vinson "; 2nd " Dewie;"  3rd " Minnie."  The Polo Pony Race fell to R.  Lamblv's " Colonel."  The five entries for the race,  arranged for officers and men of  the local B.C. Horse.got away with  a capital start, F. Heather's "Tow-  ser" carrying off the cup with an  easy win.  The league baseball match between Armstrong and Kelowna followed immediately after the races.  The visiting team were obviously  outclassed by the local boys who  were in capital form, the game  ending in favor of the latter by 9  runs to 3.  The football match between Penticton and Kelowna which should  have taken place in the morning,  had to be postponed until evening  owing to the non-arrival of the  Penticton team. The result was a  win for Kelowna by 6 goals to 2.  The events of the day were  wound up by a grand military ball  in the Opera House, which bids  fair to become the swell function  of the year.  Indian Murderers  Still at Large  Sixty Police Engaged in the  Search  The chase after the Indian outlaws, Paul and Spitlam, murderers  of Constable Kindness, says a Clinton report, has shifted from Canoe  Creek to the head of Bonaparte.  There are now sixty officers on the  work. It is getting to be an old  story in Clinton. The constables  come in on automobiles, are fitted  out with rifles, and sent to the front.  The trouble is in getting horses.  While the ordinary sources of supply are ready to furnish their quota,  they cannot supply the extra demand. The ranchers are doing  their best and horses are being  taken off the plow if they will work  to the saddle and given to the  police.  A cordon has been drawn around  the desperadoes to keep them from  getting into the Clearwater country  where it is expected they might be  safe for several years. The police  are confident that they will capture  their men.  Hindu Women to Remain  in Canada  The wives of the two Sikhs who  were detained at Vancouver for  deportation because they had violated the Immigration Act,' and  whose case has been under consideration by the government and before the courts for several months,  will be allowed to remain in Canada. This has been decided upon  bv Hon. Robert Rogers, Minister  of the Interior, as an act of grace,  as the husbands of these two  women are now in Canada, but  without establishing a precedent.  In view of the decision the proceedings will be dropped.  Coming Farmers'  Institute Lectures  Titanic Fund Grows Too  Much  The Lord Mayor of London for-  sees trouble as to what he is to do  with the subscriptions to the funds  for the Titanic sufferers. He says  quite enough money has alreody  been subscribed to relieve all distress, but the donations are still  coming in. There will be a surplus of a considerable amount, to  which consideration must now be  given.  West of Kaslo the deer are eating up the fruit trees.  By the destruction of the city  power plant at Moose Jaw that city  is without light, electric power or  water, for drinking or other purposes, and great distress prevails.  The loss is half a-million.  The south side of Second avenue  the business section of Wainwright,  Alberta, has been swept by fire  with a loss of $100,000. The town  hall and Union Bank, the fire hall  and other buildings were destroyed  A visit of a deputation of clergymen to the police commissioners  at Toronto to urge the prohibition  of children attending theatres had  an unexpected outcome. The contents of a circular issued by the  Toronto Purity Vigilance Association impressed the commissioners  as unfit for circulation and Rev.  R. B. St. Clair, secretary of the  Vigilance Association, and a member of the deputation, was arrested,  charged with distributing indecent  literature.  The anti-treating law which will  be introduced by the Ontnrio government at the next session will be  lar-reaching in its effect. The hotel  keepei, the bartender, the man who  buys ihe drink and the man who  is given the treat will be prosecuted under the new law. The tentative plans are designed to reach  every person who may commit an  offence under the law. The bartender will likely be fined to the  amount of $100 to $200, and the  " treater " and " treated " will be  dealt with in a similar way.  The Department of Agriculture  has just issued its programme of  lectures before the various Farmers'  Institutes of the province. A wide  range of subjects is included, covering every branch of fruit farming  and general husbandry.  The lecturers will be in this district during June, the dates arranged being as follows :  Okanagan Centre, Wed., June 12  H.    E.    Upton,    " Poultry    Production "  H.

Items from Ellison  IF,,,���  r own cuntf.ponilc.nl)  The members of the V, In Ian  Sunday School after having considered the advisability of hohl.ng  a picnic, unanimously decided to  have one this year. A committee  consisting of Mrs. Hay, Mrs. Bulman, Miss Geen.Mr. Bell, Ml Veen  and Mr. Watt was oppointed, and  a meeting will be held at the home  of Mr. C. IT.

The Admiralty intends, according to the London " Chronicle," to  establish aviation scout bases along  the whole of Great Britain's eastern  coast line.  The next moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian  Church of Canada will be a westerner. It is fairly definitely settled  that the Rev. Dr. McQueen, of  Edmonton, has been selected as  successor lo the Rev. Dr. Mackay.  Early Monday morning fire  broke out nt Arrowhead. The fire  spread before a stiff lake breeze  and destroyed P. Burns' meat market, also the C. P. R. freight shed.  The town was fortunately to the  windward of the fire, otherwise  nothing could have saved it from  destruction. The Orchard City Record.

Prevention of Cruelty to  Animals  Attention is drawn to an effort  which is being made to establish a  local branch of the Society for the  Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.  T he splendid work which has been  and is being done by this noble  institution, with its branches covering all parts of the world, presents  a record which its original found-  ers probably never dreamed of  I o be convinced, however, ol the  urgent need for such an organization, one has only to take note ol  the proceedings tuken by the society in nearly everv city against  horse owners and others for cases  of the most revolting cruelly, and  which, sad to say, are of almost  daily occurrence. Thanks, however to the wutUilul i>c ul die S.  PC.A., and to the educational influence which it has exercised,  matters have improved wonderfully during recent years.  The aim of the society can not  but appeal to every lover of animals, and it is hoped that the endeavor to found a blanch here will  meet with support.  The meeting is to be In Id tomorrow (Friday) In Messrs. Ratter -  buiy & Williams office at 3.30.  Okanagan Telegraph Service  The following interesting lettei  leipecting the plans of the Government Telegraph Service in the valley waa sent by the district super-  intendent at Kumloops, to the  Summerland "Review" in answer  to enquiries:  Dear Sir:  I understand a rumor has been  put into circulation in your district  to the effect that the control of the  government long distance line in  Okanagan Valley, is about to pass  into the hands of the Okanagan  Telephone Company.  In regard to this ! nay say thai  no intimation of any such proposal  has reached this office, and, in fact  the government has just autnorized  the expenditure of several thousand dollars in the improvement  and extension of the service between Vernon and Penticton, and  the department has ordered the  work lo proceed at once.  Already we have part of the  poles for this work on hand at  Summerland and Penticton, and  the balance are being cut. Other  line materials are stored at various  points between Kelowna and Penticton, and the cable to cross the  lake, Kelowna to West Bank, has  been in transit from Halifax about  two weeks, and in the course of  two ot three weeks more the construction gang will be at work near  Sum., el land.  On the completion of this work,  which will be rushed as rapidly as  possible, telegraph service will be  installed at the larger towns, and  evei v effort made to give the Okan-  Bgan people an adequate service.  For the special advantage ol fruit  shippers we are connecting our line  with the C. R. R. freight depot al  Okanagan Landing. Poles are  now on the ground, and this will  be the first piece of constitution  undertaken.  I might state further in regard to  the enquiry which has reached this  office, re the above rumor, lhat an  und,-islanding was entered into  with one of the Directors of the  Okanagan Telephone Company  that they were to recede from any  attempt to aciuire proprietorship  of the government line on any attempt to parallel or kill the business  on our line, with other similar conditions as to agencies in Okanagan  towns, etc., providing we should  refrain from any interference with  the local telephone situation in  those towns. We have lived up to  that agreement and expect it to be  kept.  Yours truly,  L. A. PALMER,  District Superintendent,  Government Telegraph Service.  IN   POUND  Two Horses (goldinga).

The Rditordoea not nee ,  aSSBrl)l| ondoreo oplulona glDon below*  To tlie Editor of  the " Kelowna Reccnil,"  Dear Sir, - The race meet of tlie  24th was one of the most successful meets ever held here with a  wide range of horses from Coast  towim. Ihe races were well contested.  The main event of the day, in  my opinion, wns between the two  famous thoroughbreds, Senator  Warner and Don E. On account  of a green boy being on Don E.  the first heat his chances were  ruined, Senator Warner winning  under 0 hard drive. I he famous  jockey, Irish, from the coast piloted  Don E. in the second heat, but  went down to defeat to famous  son of Seine. The 2.28 class was  captured by Mr. Johnson's Cora  Brown wliich is a clever pacer and  will be in the near future a candidate for the big ring. The grand  old war horse Darkie is certainly  some horse, although finishing second in the 2.28 class he showed  his gameness, coming right back  again in the free for all against the  famous speed marvel Bessie R.  There is little doubt that under the  training of John Cable, this horse  Darkie will be able to defeat anyone of his rivals in the near future.  Mr. Copeland's classy Bessie R.  captured the free for all quite handily. Membrino Earl for the first  time faced the starter and proved  himself a champion, winning the  green class as he pleased. Mr.  Dickinson, the owner should be  very proud of this grand colt which  was cleverly driven by the well  known trainer Eli Johnson. The  Polo Pony race was captured by  Mr. Lainbly's famous little horse  the Colonel. The race for the B.  C. Horse proved to be all one  sided, Towser having a lunaway.  Yours truly,  E. HARKNESS.

Oi\anagan Centre  Iruln our own correspondent  Mrs. W, Swalwell has returned  from a visit to Spokane, Wash.  A directors meeting of the Okan-  agan Cannery Co., Ltd., was held  Saturday evening last at which Mr.  J. Goldie was elected president of  company, this office having become vacant through the death of  Mr. A. Code.  Irrigation Is now in full swing,  nnd a plentiful supply of water is  being distributed to lot holders by  the superintendent of the Okanagan Valley Land Co.'s water system, Mr. T. A. Gray.  Mr. Avery Phillips is hard at  work clearing his property at the  north end of Duck Lake.  The welcome rains of the last  few days have materially helped  the orchards and gardens, and laid  the dust on the roads and given  renewed life to the grass on the  range.  Mr. E. B. Gay who has rented  the Newton place for the season  has put in a crop consisting of oats,  corn and potatoes. The young  orchard on this place gives prom-  ice of bearing quite a lot of fruit  fruit this year.  Mr. T. Lidstone is now working  on the west side of Okanagan lake  al Short's Point for J. Bailey who  has secured building contracts at  that place.  A meeting was called at the instigation of the Board of Trade on  the I8lh inst, lo discuss the advisability of holding a celebration on  Dominion Day. It was unanimously decided to have a celebration. Committees were appointed  to make all arrangements for the  spoils, decorations and finances  for the occasion. A special meeting of committees was held on ihe  25th to get matters well under way,  and a final meeting will be held on  June 8th at which all plans and arrangements will be completed. It  is understood the Women's Auxiliary will erect a booth and supply  ice cream and solt drinks. A good  programme is anticipated and il  the attendance comes up lo that^il  last year's celebration it will be a  decided success.  We are pleased to be able lo  slate that work has been started on  the new government road from  Oceola to Max Major's via Okanagan Centre townsite. George  Monford i.irived at the Rainbow  wharf with a gang of men and  learns, and started them to work  where the new road branches  away above the Rainbow Ranch  buildings. Mr. Monford placed  Tom Macdonald in charge of the  work, having to leave again for  Kelowna to take care of Mission  Creek which is giving the government a good deal of trouble this  year owing to the continued high  waler. Mr. Monford states that die  work will be pushed right through  until the road is completeed to  Max Major's and then the piece  between Oceola and the head ol  the Rainbow gulch will be graded  out. I he construction of this new  road will fill a long felt want as  present existing roads make Okanagan Centre mosl difficult of access,  there being a long tedious climb  on both sides. Ihe new grade  will be eighteen feet wide and a  and a good grade has been secured which will permit of heavy  loads being hauled from the  wharves with comparative ease, so  that it was with considerable satisfaction and gratification that the  community saw the actual commencement of construction.

Her Parliament was modelled on the French  States General, in which the various  orders asaembled together, rather  than on the assembly of Lords and  Commons which formed two Houses  Uiateavd of one. The Court ot Session,  bunded In 15111, was fashioned after  the Parliament of Paris, and the pre-  fceformatloii Scottish universities  after  that  of Paris,  the  greatest of  Elaurel scholastic Institutions.

Among other things discussed  was the question of starting an annual Okanagan Central AppIeShow  and it met with hearty approval  from everyone present.  This show would be held in  each town in the valley in turn  and would have an annual government grant of $1000���this last already promised by Hon. P. Ellison.  It was estimated that $4,000 would  have to be raised and that with the  government grant, this could easily  be accomplished.  Liberal prizes would be given  ranging $300, $125 and $75 for 1st  2nd and 3rd prizes for district exhibits, down to $2.50 for plate exhibits, proportionate prizes would  blso be offered for 25, 10 and 5  2ox exhibits.  The varieties of apples would be  limited to a fixed number, thus doing away with chance of getting into the valley an overflow of useless sorts and creating a greater  incentive to improve those varieties  which are of commercial value.  This annual apple   show   would  be for the exhibit ot apples  primarily, wilh a few pears  and   <>ili  fruits.  It is hoped that the matter when  submitted to the different fruit  growers' associations will meet with  their approval.  The executive each year would  be composed of six members from  the town in which the show is to  be held in that year, and one member from each other town represented. This arrangement would  eliminate any possibility for making the show into a sectional one.  ���Arrnstfong Advertiser.

Thursday May  80  THE ORIGIN  OF OPIUM  The Cnltfratloa of Popples which was  only Begun In China 200 Team  ifo   WM   Imported  from  the Wait Into  India,  The Mm* political development!  are to be seen In the East aa In the  Weat, but In a leaser degree, and to  affirm that the Weet ha�� ouutripped  the East, or that the Beet hai lagged  behind the Weat, la to affirm things  about whioh nothing certain can be  said. It le curious that the vice  which It regarded aa most distinctly  Asiatic ahould have originated in  Europe. Seven thousand years ago,  In the ao-called Stone age, Uie lake  itwtfllera of Switzerland were cultivating pop-plea, apparently for the oil  In the seed.  In the South of Europe aud on tbe  Mediterranean shores of Africa the  opium poppy���or rather the wild poppy of whioh the opium poppy is a  eultivated variety���was grown perhaps two thousand year*) ago. The  Greeks were acquainted with the  lomnlferous properties of the sup,  whioh wan used us medicine, but  uhiefly It wm cultivated for tho oil.  Now thia variety of poppy does not  grow wild In Asia; It was apparently  Introduced luto Persia, India, and  China by Arab traders, as the narcotic juice sppt"? to have been largely uaed by the Arabians lor the  pleasurable bffects produced, It ap-  Ijuars to have reached India about a  thousand yeurB ago, tilthmigh no  ioubt the drug wad Imported before  that time, and fhe buudred yearn  ago It was an article uf trade be-  IWh-eti   India   and   China.  The cultivation of popples, however, apparently waa only begun 111  China some two huudred years ago,  when the Chinese hit upon iha plan  it liihuMi.K ih�� fumes by burn iig the  drug- tlie so-called Opium BlUoklllg,  Here we see the Introduction uf it  narcotic from tlie West to the Bust,  and the question arises why ihe  West has been able to escape from  its Influence while so many Eastern  nations have Buccumbed? Thin Is  more especially curious when we remember that tobacco, also Introduced  to the Rast from the West, la uow  fca popular In Europe as In Asia uud  Other parts of the world.  Whatever he tbe tuinte "f this  Comparative Indifference to opium In  Europe, It remains r toci that its ike  tad cultivation were Imported from  Ihe Weat, and thus an Asiatic vice  turns out to Le not peculiar!)

QJ  WHAT ABE ACADIANS!  1a  Sir   V.alter   Hcotl   8'arlfd   the   Idea  thut Opals Were Cnlucky lu  one of his Bookis  The idea that opals were unlucky  In thought by many to be on account  of ihe unfortunate pan Sir Walter  Scott assigned to It in his "Anne of  Geler&teln." The opal Is also associated with misfortune by Russians of  both sexes, who, should ihey chance  to see an opal unionist the goods displayed for purchase, will buy nothing  more that day, and it Is a curious  fact that the Japanese, being under  the s'gn that this stone belongs to,  should be the nation to bring lUCb Ill-  luck to the Russians during the  disastrous war between these two  countries. Tbe Romans of old loved  tha cpal so well that they bestowed  upon it the name of "lovely youth."  It never occurred to them that it was  a gem which carried ill-luck to Its  poaaeaaor. in the Middle Ages there  were not wanting men who shared  tlie Romans' weakness, for opals did  not logs their popularity as time went  on. Each century brought its own  Joys aud Morrows, luck and Ill-luck,  to the human race; aud each age  brought Its fashions lu Jewellery as  In olothing, but the opal remained  high in favour and entered largely  Into the adornment of lull, sexes.

Sleep Due to Poisoning.  Couoldera,ble discussion has arisen  in scientific circles over the experiments of MM. Legendre and  Plerou lu Paris, whu have discovered  that the real reason why we go to  bleep Is because our brain has been  actually poisonyd. Sleep, they declare, is produced through a morbid  change In tiie cells of the frontal lobe  of the brain. They discovered u dog  that died of Insomnia, and injected  some of the serum of Its brain Into  another dog, thereby causing It to fall  into a deep sleep from wliich it subsequently awakened in a perfectly  boalthy condition. From this and  similar experiments they assert that  Bleep is due to a natural poison. The  {.bison of sleep, they coutend, Is, in  fact, an antidote for the poisons that  are the by-products of every mental  and physical action of our lives, and  wp a Make from sleep when It lias  cleanse dour higher nervous centres  of the poisons that our daily toll has  produced.  EXPERIENCE   WITH   SMUGGLERS  Officer Captured 100,000 Cigars  In his experiences in getting after  the tobacco smugglers Donohue, a recently deceased member of the customs service at New York, had a number of narrow escnpes from death.  One, which was partlculalry dangerous and was an excellent example of  the man's fearlessness, occurred in  1882, There was one ship plying between Cuba and New York wliich  Donohue suspected. One day it arrived on a regular trip and the detective boarded her. The customs man  knew every place on n ship where  contraband stuff could be hidden, but  after a thorough search, he found  nothing.  Rut Donohue wae sure that there  were 100,000 cigars ou lhat vessel and  he was determined to locate Ihem.  Finally he noticed that although the  firemen were free to go ashore, many  of them were still on the ship, apparently enjoying his discomfiture.  Then Douotiue had an Idea He procured a lantern aud a hummer ami  made his way to the boiler-room,  tapping each boiler with the hammer.  One sounded differently from the rest  and he urdered the circular cover,  about the slr.e of an ordinary can-  hole, removed.  There whs a moment's hesitation,  but the order was fulfilled nnd Donohue went down In the btg Iron cavern,  There heaped at one side lie found the  100,000 cigars. Hut while he was below some one clapped down tho Iron  cover and the inspector waa trapped.  He yelled and pounded, but all tn  vain. Then his lantern went out.  The detective remained there for  Beveral hours until a watchman, hearing the hammering,  released him.  New Life Preserver.  Recent consular reports describe a  new form of life preserver, which it  Is proposed to Introduce Into the German Navy. It consists of two swimming cushions bound together by  straps and arranged to lie upon the  breast and back. The novel feature  of the apparatus Is an electric lamp,  which Is worn on tbe forehead. The  lamp burns three or four hours, and  is provided with a reflector, which  throws its light for n distance of  several huudred yards at night, Tbe  lire preserver can be buckled on lu  five seconds.

The construction of this time-piece,  which contains nine hundred and  Keventy-aeven parts and coat about  M,UQQ, consumed the maker's time for  i number of years.  On the case are shown tbe signs of  the zodiac.

This royal Inventor, who Is rather  vaguely assigned lo the fourteenth  century, Is said to have constructed  an extraordinary llme-pleee, for which  three tov temples served uu buses.  At the iop of these temples there  was placed a box of works, In Ihe  middle temple were shown figures  of fairies, each carrying the sign  of one of the hours.  It appears thai Ihe side temples  were dedicated to the sun and uiouu,  respectively! and that they were given  over lo miniature genii, whose dwelling-places were connected with the  central structure by bridges.
