ANNUAL CONVENTION  OF MUNICIPALITIES  IMPORTANT RESOLUTIONS ON MUNICIPAL GOVERNMENT  Over eighty mayors, reeves, aldermen, councillor.., and municipal clerks  ol different municipalities in the province were present at the ninth annual)  convention of the Union o[ B. C. Municipalities, which took place at Van-  couves during the past week. Kelowna  was represented by Mayor Jones and  City Clerk Dunn. Aid. D. W. Sutherland also visited the coast and attended the.various sessions. The convention assembles at different points  each year for the purpose of discussing  matters relating to city government,  and' the results of their deliberations  are embodied in the form of suggestions to the provincial government for  future.legislation. The government has  thus the advant age of advice and counsel from a body of men who are practically engaged the year round in administering the municipal laws.  Th.B year the time of the various  sessions was largely occupied in discussing proposed amendments to the  municipal clauses act, suggested by  the recent municipal commission, which  toured the province visiting Kelowna  amongst other places.  In his address of welcome, Mayor  Baxter said there was not infrequently jealousy, not only in municipalities,  but also in wards. That was a thing  which was very damaging, and nothing could be better than to have such  a convention, striving for the general  benefit of all. It was good for them  to meet together, get each other's  views and broaden out their standpoint, with the intention of making  British Columbia the best province of  the Dominion.  Continuing he aaid there was great  need in Canada, especially in British  Columbia cities, of more laWB regulating personal conduct. For instance, he  declared there was strong need for a  law that would follow a wife deeerter  and bring him back for punishment,  juat as a murderer or thief is tracked  down and brought back. He would also have a lazy husband law that  would force some of the "won't works',  to clear government land and have  their earnings paid to theii wives.  He also advocated a law that would  compel a drunken husband to have his  pay cheque mado out to a magistrate  or some other official, who would administer it wisely.  Many resolutions were put before the  delegates by Mr. F. W. -Peters, city so  licitor of Prince Rupert, chairman of  the resolutions committee. The first  of these suggested an amendment to  the Municipal Act of 1913 whirh ' provides that municipalities must pay  .or the keep of prisoners when it is  possible to fine them iustead of sending them to prison. As it is legal lo  impose a fine ae an alternative to> imprisonment for terms running ��� p to  five years it means that nearly every  prisoner has to be kept by the municipality while in prison. Tins was cat*  ried and will be put before'the /ovtrn-  ment for consideration.  Several matters were brought up  by the City of Duncan for consideration of the delegatee to the convention. The first four of these suggestions, which follow, were carried and  will be placed before the government  for consideration. The suggestions  were:  That when a resident of a municipality pays an automobile license to  the government that a portion of such  license be returned to the municipality  as a contribution towards the upkeep of roads. ���  That when the water power of any  stream or river is uBed for the pur"  pose of a municipal eleotrio light and  power plant or for any other munioi-  pal purpone, that the government licence fee and annual ohargo in connection therewith be made a nominal  one only.  That no land subdivision plan be  accepted by tho government is respect  to any land situated within thi boundary of any municipality until the  same has beon approved by the council for the municipality concerned,  and that no subdivision .by metes and  bound s be perm i tted within the  boundary of any city or municipality  unless tho same has firi it been milt  mitted to and approvod by the council of the said oity.  The next three suggestions     were  first being | that boards of school trustees include one member of the municipal oounoil. The second was that  the provincial government be asked  to guarantee the interest on municipal  bonds under suoh safeguards as wiH  protect the government in.the passing  of the money bylaws. The last suggestion, made by the municipal council of Duncan, which waB aUo dropped, was that section 04 of the proposed new Municipal Act be amended,  so as to give municipal councils power  to issue treasury certificate* at a  rate of interest up to 7 per cent., instead of limiting it to 0 per cent., as  at present.  A resolution askimr th:t municipalities be allowed to invest their ninl.-  ing funds in debentures of other municipalities of B. 0., was carried and  the request will be put before the government.  By a considerable majority it waB  decided to approve of the seven mill  limit on the school taxation rate.  A resolution was-put forward by tbe  City of New Westminster asking that  the federal government start labor  bureaus waB considered to be out of  and     the  the province of the   \  matter was dropped.  After several conferences with the  Diarmid, Viotoria, solicitor to the  Municipal commission, Mr. F. Mc-  (Jnion of B. C. Municipalities stated  that he had thrashed out details of  the proposed new municipal bill. He  Btated that the commissi m had objected to the division of municipalities into four classes and that they had also  opposed tho request that the municipalities should operate their own telephone systems.  After some discussion on this matter it was decided to pass a resolution  in favor of submitting it to the government. The same action will- be  taken with regard to the municipalities owning and operating swimming  baths.  A proposition that -section 53 of the  act be amended was made by ex-  Reeve Wenrt of Burnaby. The  amendment suggested being that municipalities should haye. the, riijht  to establish, regulate or maintain any  publio works or to do any public act  considered to be in the interest of tbe  public, subject to the'approval of the  ���lieutenant-governor in councils Thia  matter waB,referred to the resolutions  committee and dealt with later as  above.  Tax sales and definition of wild  land were the next subjects under  discussion, tho latter I >���'i\ ������ referred  to the executive to take up with the  government. The clause asking that  no land be exempt from taxation wiM  also be re-Bubmitted. Another clause  which will be submUt'd ii tu-�� one  regarding the qualifications of the  voters. The convention are asking  that the same conditions as there are  at New Westminster be granted.  The opinion of the delegates seemed  to be almost unanimously in favor of  resubmitting the clause asking that  the financial year be closed a month  earlier in order to allow time for the  accounts to be Bent in before the  January elections. Another matter to  be resubmitted is the proposal that  a ratepayer should have the right  to vote in all the wards in whioh he  has property. ,  That power be given to the lunici-  palities to purchase, construct and  operate motor buses, street ��ll vfyi,  ferries and telephones outside its  boundaries is another request ��� �� be  resubmitted and as this seemed to be  one of the most important clauses  there were a good many speakers on  the subject and the vote for its resubmission was unanimous.  Mr. Henderson, C. M. C, for Coldstream put a motion before the meeting recommending that the government be asked to give a certain per  mile grant per year for the upkeep of  trunk roads. This matter was referred  to the executive committee and will  bo placed before the government lor  consideration.  Sevoral interesting papers and addresses were given during the course  of the convention, including one by  Aid. McMahon, of Vancouver, on "Mu-  nioipal Ownership," on "Volunteer Fire  Brigades," by the acting ehirf of the  Vancouver Fire Department, etc.  The delegates wcro entertained to  luncheon by the municipality of Point  Grey and the directors of th<> Vancouver Exhibition, nnd had several interesting motor trips.  At tho close of the last Bo^sion of  tho convention, the officers for the  ensuing year wero elected. Mayor Hob'  inson of KaraloopB was olocted president. Mayor Robinson has acted  tho capacity of vice president    du  Herbert Fryer Recital  Those who took advantage of the  opportunity last night to hear some  really good music, a delightful contrast to the eternal "rag time", were  welt rewarded, for the entertainment  provided by Mr. Herbert Fryer at the  opera house was like an oasis in the  desert to music lovers of this community. The loHtwe of the opera house  must Buroly see tho advisability of  providing nn entertainment of this nature more frequently for the audience  was quite large and very enthusiast..o.  About tho merits of Mr. Fryer's performance critioal remarks wouh. UO  presumptuous for he showed himself  completely a paat< master of his profession, and anyone who has gi\en  universal satisfaction from the platform of Queen'a Hall, London, and  other famous concert halls would hardly fail to please the musical palates  of an audience in the heart of British  Columbia.  All the items of the program wore  well received, the composition uf Hen-  selt, "Si oiseau j'etaiB" evoking, a  well deserved display of enthusiasm  from the audience. This number was  immediately preceded by a minuet ,aud  valse, composed by Mr. Fryer, which  clearly showed how thoroughly he had  penetrated all the branches of his art  and brought ont in a very clever manner intricacies of melody and harmony proving himself to bo well worthy of the position he haa gained for  himself in the musical world. The last  item on the program. Polonaise in A  Flat, by Chopin, brought forth a  burst of applause, and Mr. Fryer was  forced to respond with another item,  of a quiet nature, which brought the  recital to a close.  Mr. Hodkinson assisted on the program with two songs, "The Trumpet*  and "'Songs of Romania" for both  of which he was applauded with much  enthusiasm, his accompaniments being  played with much skill and. taste by  Mrs. Hodkinson.   4   VISIT m MIMSTJ...K OF EDUCATION AND AGRICULTURE  The Hon.

MAY CHANGE T1MBKH REGULATIONS  The possibility of deriving a larger  und more proport innate revenue from  tlie timber resources o! British Columbia is tlie main object of the inquiry  into the royalty question which is being undertaken by Hon. W. K. Ross,  commencing at Vanoouver un September 8. The matter is one that effects tho interests of the public at  large.     After deliberation which     in-  olvetl consideration of tho subject  from many angles tho conclusion has  been reached that,tho stumpage is in  some instance being sold [or less than  iti its worth and the object of an increased and possibly graded royalty is  to insure that the timber resources.  winch are the property of the people  as represented by the crown, yield a  revenue that ia considered commensurate with their great value. At present  the royalty is 50 cents per thousand  feet, board measure, but this it insufficient. It is not considered a wisp  policy that the timber men shouUl he  enriched ut the expense ot the public,  and while the government is anxious  to do everything in its power lev encourage the lumber industry the duty  of safeguarding the public interests  ta paramount lo every other eonsider  ation.  Premier IffoRride arrived in London  the last week in August and spoke  to one of thc papers in favor of Mr.  Borden's plan of giving three ships  to the British Navy. He belie.ed it  would be carried out yet. Sir Richard spoke of the splendid reception  given the New Zealand by the people  uf this,province, and praised Sir Thomas Shaughnessy, president of (lin  C.P.R,, for the work ho is doing to  prepare for the opening of the Panama canal. When ^this short route front  Europe to the Pacific coast is ready,  the premier stated, there will bo not  only a great increase in trade and  commerce, hut many industries will he  undertaken,  White Restaurant  50c.

A visit to the docks and warehouses  ol the metropolis is a wonder trip, so  extraordinary is the diversity oi London's shipping trade, as exemplified in  the contents oi ths vast warehouses  along the dooksides. from St, Kather-  ine's Dock, -close to the Tower bridge,  to Tilbury, more than twenty miles  down the river, says the London Chronicle.  In the warehouses attaohed to St.  Katherine's dock, are somo oi the  most valuable articlea ol produce which  come to the port' oi London. Here  great ohestB of tea, weighed and tared  by the customs land excise, authorities,  await delivery, and often the floors  are covered with immense heaps oi Indian and Ceylan teas, which are thoroughly mixed by means oi great wooded spades to obtain an even quality  throughout the paroel. A seaut manufactory occupies part of another building. Extract of ilowers mixed with rat  is imported from San Heine, and other  places. The extract, is separated from  the fat by .special machinery and mixed with alcohol. The process takes  place in the dock precincts, ao that  scents may be made in bond for exportation, and the payment oi duty  on alcohol avoided. Then there are the  shell roomB, where tortoise shell���the  best sells for as much, as ��16 a pound  ���and mother-of-pearl aro sorted and  totted on behalf oi the fort oi London authority by a staff of experts.  Wool and wine, brandy, sugar, rubber, ivory, Bpices, drugs, dates, pepper aud quicksilver are some of the  valuable commodities which lie stored  in the vast vaults and1 warehouses by  the London docks, where the gangways alone cover a length of 28J  miles, and where 105,000 pipes of wine  can be stowed at one time.  The ivory storehouse, ie a wilderness oi  tusks, and last year ita contents represented the ivory oi about 34,000  elephants, the total value being ��360.-  000. One oi the most curious features  offthe wine vaults is the rich coloring  oi the fungus which encrusts the roof,  a feature which is entirely absent in  the brandy vaults, whioh, by ths way  are four acres in extent.  Tobacco, the market price ol which  is nearly ��9,000,000, lies stored in the  neighborhood oi the Royal Victoria  docks, and in the Cutter street ware:  houses lie thousands of oigars from  Havana, the Philippine Islands, Madras and Burma, with cases of cigarettes, the contents of which make a  total oi 30,000,000 and 1,400 cases of  Cavendish tobacco, containing about  210,000 pounds.  Adjoining is a warehouse which  would make the mouth of the China  enthusiast water. Here stands specimens, of the old blue and white Chinese porcelain sought by collectors;  delicately painted Satsuxna rubs shoulders with vases and bowls of Cloisonne enamel, or is backed by the rich  red and gold of Kaga ware. Carved  ivory figures, lacquer cabinets, ancient  manuscripts from Persia and Mexico,  are to be /found with silk piece goods  from China, Japan and Bengal, the  value of which reaches the Bum oi over ��700,080. Then there ars the feathers and bird skins from all parts of  the world, the total value oC the feathers annually sold amounting to  about ��3,000,000.   ,   SUBSTITUTE FOR GASOLINE  Aj oint committee appointed by the  Royal Automobile Club, the Automobile Association and ths Society of  Motor Manuiaoturers of England to  find an efficient substitute ior gasoline  has discovered a process,, which it is  said, will produce 40,000,000 gallons  oi motor spirit annually without in  any way depleting the country's mineral resources. It involves the utilization oi a by-product oi coal, hitherto  unsuitable ior motor fuel.  Experts have made a full investigating, with excellent results, and a fidl  sized commercial plant ia being built  at London. The spirit can be sold  lor not more than 28 oernta a gallon,  probably for less. Thn secretary of  the oommittee shows that tho annual  consumption of motor spirit in Great  Britain is about 100,000,000 gallons,  and that the present high price of  gasoline is 42 cents a gallon.  ���   >   Provisional President Yuan Shi Kai  of the Chinese Republio has issued a  decree announcing Mb intention, ot resigning offioe as soon as peace is restored, according to a telegram Irom  Mukden. ,   f   There is to be a oonferenoe ire London ol delegates from all partn of the  empire to consider naval doltmree.

This Gurney-Oxford range is  the result of over seventy years'  experience and experimental  study of improvements to  benefit the woman who toils  in the kitchen.  Even Bakings  By means of a Divided Flue  Strip, the heat is divided evenly  over the top and down the back  and sides of the oven. A pan  of biscuits in the front and  back of the oven will brown  with perfect evenness without  having to change their places  many times during the baking.  The two back lids ofthe range  also receive an equal cooking  heat that will boil two kettles  at the same time.  The entire range is controlled  practically by one handle,  called the Economizer. It  turns around a series cf six  notches to determine the exact  degree of heat required. Such  control saves time, fuel and  labor.  Saving of Fuel  Then again the special Reversible Grate saves coal bills  by burning the coal to a fine  white ash. No unburn, coal  can lodge in the rounded corners of the firebox.  It's Sanitary Too ,  Its smooth, clean top is polished and requires no black  lead.  The Gurney-Oxford is "different" from all other ranges���  its exclusive devices make an  irresistible appeal to every  woman.  ���9  tijj)  &  CALL ON US-ASK FOR OUR NEW CA TALOGUE," STOVES and RANGES'  D.

Tbe waste ol water is also great  ly reduced!by the metered system with  resultant economy to the taxpayers.  There is a metered service in operation in Milwaukee, and the) figures ��o  companying this artiole were compiled  by the city engineer oi that place. The  uverago daily consumption ol water  in Milwaukee in 1913 was 17,566,000  gals., or 113 gale., per capita her day,  but eliminating the 100 largest consumers, It was 75 gale., as compared  with nearly 200 in Ottawa. The actual cost per thousand gals., including  sinking lund charges, depreciation, lax  and 4 per cent., interest on not. invested oapital was 5. 733o; the revenue  based on    total pumpage was 4.676o  per gal., and, based on the total   for  which the city actually reeeived   payment, 6,2A7o per 1,000 gals.

In  .the case of Milwaukee one hundred ol  the largeBt consumers paid 8402,563 or  nearly 50 p.c, of the entire revenue  of the water department during 1912.

Sir Edward Carson has been making  speeches in Ulster urging tho people of  that province never to submit to  Home Rulo in Ireland, should that  measure become law.  FOBEST GROWTH IN  BRITISH COLUMBIA  It is estimated that British Colum.  bia contains over one hundred million  aores of wood land, ol which upwards  ol sixty-live million acres may be regarded as aotually or potentially capable of producing merchantable timber, though, outside of this, the land  is not of value. On this area nature  has been busy for a great many years  storing up what is today one of the  greatest of the few extensive reserves  of commercial timber left in the world,  It is estimated that this ares contains  over three hundred trillion feet board  measure of timber, comprising .over  half the standing timber of Canada.  When the question of lores, planting  is linked with such a resource, it becomes of interest, tovon though the importance ol planting to the perpetuity  of the, resource yet remains to be eeen.  The matter ol reforeslration has lieen  considered in connection with t'.riii.h  Columbia from three points nf <iewi���  1.���Silvioultural.  2.���Financial.  .1.���Economic.  Owing to a very favorable combination of soil and climate, nowhere, at  least in the temporate zone, do trees  grow more rapidly and more persistently than on the Facilio slope ol  .North America, nowhere is natural reproduction more prolific and vigorous.  In (act, this very readiness of nature  to undertake the work renders discussion almost superfluous.  However, it has been demonstrated  that reforestration is praotioable in  British Columbia. Not only would it  be possible to reproduce those in.es  which are indigenous to the soil, but  also other exotic trees such as the  hardwoods. But, in a provinoe .vliicn  is cutting as yet only one-fifth if the  annual growth of its forests, it is  naturally hardly necessary for mm to  undertake to facilitate the reproductive processes of nature.  It may be concluded, then, that artificial reforestration is neither necessary nor, relatively speaking desirable  over the major part of British Columbia today.0 With regard to tbe three  considerations mentioned above in this  artiole the following conclusions have  been arrived at:���  First���forest planting in British -Columbia is silvioulturally possible.   The  hardwoods may be grown as well    as r  softwoods.  Second���forest regeneration in Brit.  ish Columbia is financially practicable,  as also is forest planting,  Third���forest planting is not now,  in general, necessary, nor is it lihe  most profitable way to spend timo,  energy, or money in British Columbia  -W.L.C.

The aim of man (rom lb*  beginning has been to make hia building material, as nearly tike natural .lone ai possible. The great labor required to quarry stone led  him to seek various manufactured substitutes. The only reason he ever  used wood was that it was easiest to get end most convenient to use.  Wood is no longer easy to get. Like most building material its cost is increasing at an alarming rate.  The cost of concrete is decreasing.    So, horn the standpoint of either sar-  vice or economy, Concrete is the best building material  Canada's farmers are using mora concrete, in proportion to their numbers,  than the fanners of any other country.   Why ?  Because they are being supplied with  Canada Cement ���  a cement of the highest possible quality, which insures the i uccess of their concrete world  The secret ol concrete'��� popularity in Canada lies in  the fact that while we have been advertising the use  oi concrete, we have also been producing, by scientific methods, a cement ao uniformly high ia quality  that the concrete made with it gives the complete  satisfaction our advertisements promised.  Concrete would not have been in such universal use  today, had an inferior grade of cement been supplied.  Insist upon getting Canada Cement.

A  common queution aaked is, what ie the  age limit lor joining the ScoutB? The  limiti for enrolment are Irom 11 to. IU  but that doe. not mean that at the  latter age a scout must leave the  troop. Indeed one ol the hardest i.io-  bleme now exercising .the attention of  the authorities ia how to keep the sen-  iora.Irom leaving. Various methods  are put forward in the Headquarter.  Uuzette to which the reader ia referred  owing   to lack   of apace, in our coir  BASIS BALL  .  * �� * ft * * 1  The effect of a band is, well known  ior marching purposes but how many  bands ure of suoh a meduchre nature  und only succeed in making ..henuwlvo*  a nuisance to their hearers. and bring  their organizations into disfavor with  the public. The following regulation,  therefore will be recognized as a step  in the right direction.  Scout bands must not play when  passing churches, hospitals, or any  house where illness ia known to be.  No bands may pluy after 9 p.m., in  the streets and bugle practice Jimy not  be carried out in open pluueB within  (.80 yards of any houses.  Begging  It may be wondered why troop funds  are often low. Regulation 47 siates  that Scouts ure not allowed to solicit  money, either for their ti'oop funds  or' for any other purpose. It in bad  I for the boy and lends itseli to fruud  by outsiders. Tho spirit oi the movement is that on tho part of ,the boys  themselves, money Bhould be earned  and not solicited. Each scout pays a  small subscription weekly and every  department from Headquarters to ths  individual troops depends on the publio for its support. Troops and local  associations aro nor rtjquired to contribute to headquarters funds.  Cadets may belong individually to  the Boy Scouts but not as a cadet  unit.  Catup raining is strictly prohibited.  this is a welcome regulation to those  who appreciate sleep under canvas.  An annual census is taken on Sept.  .-0th and the 2nd annual report of the  provinoe' of British Columbia shows  some very interesting facts with regard to the growth of the movement.  To quoic .this report' "The total  strength in 1912 was 1,003; 1911 showed 1317 while in 1910 there were 1023.  on the books.  Theso figures may appear to indicate  a decrease, but it must be remombered  that the earlier figures represent a  large number of what I may call "paper scouts" ���boys who were induced  to join owing io the novelty and when  the novelty wore off, quit). Then again  we have > lost scores of really keen  scouts owing to the difficulty that is  ever with us, namely, want of ojuaft  fied scoutmasters and assistants.  Troop after troop han been broken up  owing to scoutmasters going away nnd  being without a oapablc assistant to  carry on the work until anothor scottt-  mnstor can be found, no one is left  in charge.  Later in the report the following remark occurs: "Kelowna mado thn common mistake of looking for quantity  rather than qirality. (They reacted a  paper strength of about f.0 and then  collapsed.

IMMIGRATION TO OANADIA.  New arrivals in Canada during , t'hs  first four months of the fiscal yeisr  increased the population by slip.htjy  ovor a quarter of a million. Tho fixtures of the figures for the fo��r  hnonths, April to July 31, issuer! recently are an increase of -'0 |jer tent'.,  in the arrivals from all countries, a  big increase in the immigration U>  Canada from Great Bri-iain, ind a  falling off in the number of Americana  who have crossed the border to make  their homes in the Canadian went.  The total immigration during tho  four months was 2&0..906 mado up of  99,101 British; 50,0 it) Americans, and  97,765 from all otW countries.  During ths four oorresps-ndlng  months of the laHt fiscal year, the'  total number was 309,4-12 composed of  88,318 Britinh, 65,000 Americana and  61,124 from all other countries.  Weill The baseball season is once  more a thing of the past, and the season came to a close last Thursday afternoon when the looals defeated the  Yernonites for the second time in the  three-game series at the close of the  league season.      t'' ���        /  During the season just finished Kelowna 1ms made a record to be proud  of. This may seem a queer statement  to many, but when it is remembered  thut Kelowna won more games than  any team in the league, but had the  misfortune of having to piny mon at  various times who were not signed  the demunded 14 days, thus giving the  other club the privilege of protest,  which oach club did, the gamoB going  for naught after being first won by  the Kelowna team.  Lust Thursday afternoon was the  last game of the series between Kelowna and Vernon. and a fitting  close it was for Kelowna. The Vernon-  ites never become dangerous during  the contest and only succeeded in getting one man as far as third base.  A good orowd turned out to witness the last game of the season and  all wont away happy, for they not  only saw Kelowna deftm t eir' rival  but did not allow them to register a  single tally, while the Kelowna boys  piled up seven runs.  This made Kelowna the winners of  the post Beason series, by winning two  games of the three that were played.  The tie between Vernon and Hovel-  stoke which was to have been played  off on Friday did not materialize owing to the fact that Revelstoke wanted the tie to be played of! in a three-  game series. This did not appeal to  Vernon and the game was not played.  'We understand that the league head  has awarded the pennant to Vernon.'  owing to Revelstoke's refusing to play  the single contest for possession of  the handsome silver trophy presented  to the league by the Calgary Brewing  & Malting Co.  Thursday afternoon and evening saw  the boys who had represented Kelow.  na in the league preparing to depart  for their homes. Friday morning's  boat crimed Alberts, Stanley and Casad, going via Vancouver to their respective homes. Albert goes to Tacoma, Casad to Hremerto.n, and Stanley  whose home is near Seattlo, will go  south to California where he will join  his wife and spend the winter in San  Francisco.  The south bound steamer in the afternoon carried Davis and Holgerson,  en route to Spokane, where Mr. Davis  will join his wife and go cast to his  home in Indiana. Holgerson goes to  Tacoma.  Many were the regre'n c.pressed ;by  the boys on leaving. They were glad  to have'been members of the team and  ono and all expressed the hope that  next yoar would find the bunch again  called together here.  TO ESTABLISH WATER PLANE  STATIONS  It is the intention of the British Admiralty, with all possible speed, to  encircle the coast with a girdle of  water plane stations 50 to 100 miles  apart, says the London Daily Mail.  This is due to the fact that the ;wat-  er plane��� Britain's best weapon of defence���has come through the first stage  of tho uaval manoeuvres with flying  colors.  In the naval manoeuvres the water  plane has proved invalr.a.lo fit* a scout  and as a means of discovering tho approach of a submarine. This, too, not  in a single instance but on u dozen  oocasions. Tho naval waterplanes stationed at Cromarty discovered a Bed  submarine approaching on the surface  and brought about her capture.  Again, a lieutenunt in a waterplano  from the Yarmouth naval air station  detected a submarine)cruising off Hunstanton. Her number was read and she  would in war have fallen a ready prey  to, surface ships. Similar experiences  have been gainod on the south and  north coasts.  Ijlt has been ascertained that thesub-  marino can easily bo seen from tho  waterplane in clear weather so long as  she is running on the surface.- Yet in  this position she is almost invisible  at a distance from large ships, as her  conning tower iB hidden by the waves.  Below the Hiirfuc. the submarine can  be made out whon the waterplane Is  overhead or nearly overhead, The airman looking down is ��ot baffled by  the, optical effects of the waves.  Thus the first offect of the water-  plane in to relievo the large ship's  crew of the intonse nervous strain that  is felt when there is peril of a sudden  blow from an invi-.an.le antagonist. Its  second effeot is to hamper the submarine's movement and greatly diminish her tactical value. She can no  longer hope to mi'- ��nd will  have to keep much farther .below the  surface than she does nt present and  to be ttx more wary.  UNKNOWN PARTS  Vast  Section of British Empire    Unknown to White Men.  Perhaps one of the most interesting  and least known countries on the face  of the glabe and one which has so  far, pretty successfully denied civilization lies secreted among the Himalaya  mountains.  It is presided over entirely by women, who are responsible for suoh  rude laws as are necL'ssnry even in" a  lawless district, manage the affairs of  state, and live in a luxury of inverted  Mormonism, by possessing four or five  husbands apiece. All the rough taskB  and menial labors are assigned to the  hillmen. and "mere man" isof small  acoount beside these Himalayan ama-  zons.  On a rough estimate it is declared  that 7,000,000 square milce, 0" ' one-  eighth of the total land surface ofthe  world, are waiting to be discovered.  Some 200,000 of this lies in the Arctic  regions of the north, but among tho  frozen tracts that from "Antarctics"  in the south, where Scott and hia  gallant followers wore penetrating,  nearIy3,000,000 square miles are relegated to the sola use of the whale,  penguin, aod other animala and birds  of the frozen zono.  In Arabia it Beems that there is n  tract of land unexplored which i-  nearly five times aa large ts Great  Britain. Probably there is w> in-re  desolate waste to be found in tho entire globe than that which is 0*1'ed  the "dwelling of tho void."' Ni't a  single river is estimated I o flow  throughout the entire 400,000 r ,ua'e  miles.  Although the famous El Dorado,  Peru, which set the sixteenth century  ablaze has never been unearthed, the  country might fittingly be called HI  Dorado, from the rich minerals and  priceless stones which t manate from  there. Strange, wild-eyed men occasionally descend from the mountains  and bring wonderful fragments with  them. But they refuse to act as guides  to those who would accompany them  back.  It is curious to realize that vast  parts of the British Empire have never been seen by British eyes or the  eyes of any white mnn. Nearly a"  quarter of Australia is still unexplored,, mainly in the west, whore the  population averages enly one person  to every twenty miles.  New Guinea has baffled countless  expeditions, thouph ���" *v pjjo trying  to fight their way inland from tho  coast.

Letters of a Self-raised Office Boy  to His Pal  In whiclVJimmy tell, of Kelowna happenings to Mr.  Sidney Harpar, of Vancouver. B.C.  Messrs. Casorso Bros, are giving a prize of $15 for tha bast  decorated bars* in tha parade.  Dear Sid,���As I have told you before, many times and oft, we who  dwell in this Jilysian field, commonly  oalled Kelowna, have blessings showered upon us with a prodigal hand. The  climate, the soenery, and the iruittul-  nees oi our little paradise would tend  to make one imagine that life herd  nothing more in store. But the gods  in the goodness oi their hearts, havo  held the golden chalice oi viotory to  our lips, bidding ub drink, and drink  we did till the cup was drained to the  very dregs. In elucidating the lore-  going convalrian I would remind you  that in my last epistle thoto was  mention made oi a series oi base ball  games being played with Vernon; and  also the lamentable fact that Vernon  had won tho firat game. After letting  Vernon got away to this Hying start,  what does little old Kelowna do? She  turns around like a tigress driven to  bay in dehmce ol her young, and just  clawed the supreme wadding out oi  that bunch from the city of the dead.  Yoy know Sid, it's not the way you  start, or your performance in the middle oi a race that's remembered, but  the way you finish. Thus it is with  our baseball team. There have been  tiniea when they have tried our patience sorely but all that is forgiven  them now, in tho language of that immortal bard Hiram Contassel of Okanagan Centre. ''"Their faults we write  upon the sands, but their viotory over  Vernon we engrave upon tho imperishable tablets of love and memory."  On Thursday night we initiate our  new picture screen, and believe me  when I say that it is almost impossible to believe the difference it makse  in the pictures. The boBe has been  handing me a lot of what I thought  was hot air about this screen buainens,  but I said to him in this oase "I am  a native , of Missouri, and you wild  have to show mel" Ho did allright  and 1 find that he didn't say half  enough. Anyway, the people will have  a chance to judge for themselves on  Thursday night, and if the general  opinion is not that the piotures are  improved 100 per .cent., I'll get up  on ���e stage Friday night and eat th.  darned thing, frame and ail. That's  fair enough iBn't it?  I went out last Sunday and tried  i)o catch that kickininny I waB telling  you about, but there iyas nothing doing, my jinks followed uie and 1 was  skunked once more. Do you know, Sid  I believe if those fool things wore running so thick that a person oould  walk across Mission Creek on their  baoks, ii I started out Irom town they  would break their blamed nooks getting back to the lake. However, we  are going out again next Sunday and  I will either bring baok one oi the  blooming things, or else leave my  moldering body at' the marge oi the  creek. I'll let you know next week how  I come out, but in case 1 get handed  a gooBo egg this time 1 will inform  you that my favorite flowers are buckwheat and cauliflower, and that I  would like to have that uathctio ballad entitled "He Sleeps' in ths Valley  By Bequest" sung at the funeral.  Good Bye Sid, old boy, .Don't forget  lo write to your old college chum.  Best regards to everybody.  Yours, JIMMY.   *   FOB APPLE PICKBKS  The following ezoeUent hints for the  picking oi apples is taken from "Suggestions and Tables for Fruit Growers." issued by tbe North i'aoilio Fruit  Distributors oi Spokane:  1.���Apples should be carefully picked  and handled, (a) Care should be used  by pickers io aeoure item oi apples intact.
