 VOL. V.  NO. 24.  KELOWNA. BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, MAY 8, 1913.  $1.50 Per Annum.  Meeting of  City Council  All Expenditures Must be  Curtailed this Year  There waa ��� full attendanm at lust  Fridays meeting of the City Council,  the principle problem to be dealt with  being the financial difficulties canned  by the continued depression of the  money market.  Several letter, were read having reference to the aale of the city's debentures, and theae were handedto the  Finance committee for their consideration.  11 r. J, F. Spalding wrote to aay he  wai making a tour through the cast  for the purpoae of compiling a tourist  guide, and suggested that the oity insert an advertisement in the publication. It was decided to hand the  letter over to the Board of Trade.  The Progress Club of Vancouver  wrote for details as to land in the  vicinity set apart for industrial purposes. It was left for the publicity  commissioner newly appointed by the  Board of Trade to take up the quea-  i ion, and furnish the necessary information,  A letter from the Canadian Public  Service Corporation with reference to  town planning was read and filed.  Four letters from residents in tier-  many and Austria asking for information as to conditions of settling in  the distriot, and the ehanoea of purchasing ranches were handed over to  the Board of Trade.  The manager of the Bank of Montreal advised the oity that he had  authority to advance money te the  extent oi $29,787.00 against the city's  current revenue.  Speaking on the matter the mayor  reported the result oi his visit to tke  coast ia an endeavor to relieve the  financial situation a little ae most  satisfactory. He had arranged with  the Bank to furnish funds for the continuing of the now school building as  a loan against the grant to be given  by the government for that purpose.  One of the conditions of the grant  was that the government required the  architect's certificates of progress bo-  fore advancing same and as these certificates would have to pose through  three govenment departments before  any money oould be paid over, there  would be ia delay of several weeks.  The arrangement with the Bank  would, however, enable than to to  pay the money due tbe oontraetor and  to make further payments as they became due.  As to the $30,010 available against  current revenue, it would be necessary  to use the greatest care in the expenditure of the same, because if the oity  failed to sell its debenturea, it was  very unlikely that a further advance  would be made thia year. The B.C.  superintendent of the Bank of Montreal hud advised the curtailing of  expenditure as much as possible, us in  bis opinion the debenture market was  not likely to improve in the immediate future.  Aid. Thompson aeked at this point  if it would be advisable for the Park  commissioners to apply for the extension uf the water system to the new  recreation grounds in the Park. He  waa requested to lay the matter before  the committee at tho meeting on Tuesday.  Aid. Calder reported that Messrs.  Ihiggan and Davies had applied to him  with a view to obtaining water for  thoir null division outside the eity  limits. They were willing, he said, to  purchase all equipment and materials  necessary and would do all the work  in connection with the installation.  The semoo would be through a meter  und the noeounts could be sent to one  person who would undertake responsi-  bility for the same.  Aid. Sutherland was opposed to the  idea of making a apecial rate for such  a connection, as the individual users  would, receive water at a rate less  than city consumers were paying, He  suggested . that a minimum rate be  charged for each connection with an  additional charge per thousand gallons on the total consumption. It  .would be necessary to have an agreement before taking any action in the  matter. It wae, therefore left in the  hands of the water and light commit  tee.  Aid.- Calder reported that eevcral  unmetciwl water consumers were using  water on their lawns and gardens, and  in some  instances allowing it to run  for twenty-four hours in the day. It  was decided to out off such premises  from the supply unless the practice  was discontinued.  Aid. Copeland said he would not be  able to report on the proposed amendments to tho Street Sprinkling by-law  tinh to that regulating the fixing of  signs on lhe streets until the next  meeting of the council, owing to the  absence of one of the members ot the  committee concerned.  Aid. Copeland also stated that he  had been unable to secure satisfactory  information oh to a suitable incin wn-  for, and had therefore requested the  linn of Canavan & Mitchell to prepare  specifications of the same for the  ���ouneil's perusal.  Aid. Copeland also reported having  eceived several complaints as to the  water from Messrs. Casorso's building  operations Hooding the streets. After  some disetisRion it was left in the  hands of the Hoard of Worksto deal  with the matter.  The  following  accounts  were    then  passed for payment:���  Power House payroll, A nl - 653 00  C H Dunn, city clerk's salary - 150 00  FV Royle, clerks salary        -       - 90  WH Rennie   ��� ��� 70 00  P T Dunn, Assessor and Collector's  salary 100 00  R Sutherland, chief con.'s salary - 125 00  G MacKay, night con.'s salary - 85 00  J A Bigger, Building Inspector's sal 15 00  A R Davy, scavenger's aalary - 166 66  Dr. H L Keller, office rent April - 35 00  G H Dunn, petty cash - - - 17 15  J H Stevenson, teaming in park - 97 50  J H Stevenson, work in park-       -   36 00  A W'n'lajBaaa.  25 50  Ennia and  McDonald, teaming in  park  58 50  F Smith, work in park -       -       - 36 00  White 6t Bindon, Ltd., atationery - 6 00  C.P.R., freight  15 57  M Miller, sewer time check -      - 3 00  D Plev            II 35  Work on streets payroll         -       - 297 00  School Trustees' Meeting  I'll.- nuliool Irtr^tocfl mot tfuoadny last  in the secretary's oflice.  After the reading of the minutes a  number of accounts amounting to  &M.7S was passed.  The High School Insptctor, Mr. I).  L. Mcf.aurin, tendered hie report on,  the work in the High School, showing  very satisfactory results achieved by  tho staff.  On the motion of Messrs. McKenzie  and Knowles, the board sanctioned  the use, by the contractor ou the new  school, of Lethbridge brick instead of  the Clayburn briok as previously specified.  Mr. Neil Gregory is at present In  hospital recovering from an operation.  Mrs. ('. Wilson had a painful aooid-  ent lairt week iu which she broke the  ligaments of one of her fingers.  A bad case of peritonitis wes  brought to the hospital last week  from one of tho railroad camps, but  wus too far advanced to be success  fully treated.  The Kelowna Baseball team played  Summerland College last Thursday,  journeying down the lake in the s.s.  *Clovelly." They were defeated, how-  ovur, by 8 to 3. The return game is  lieing played to-day.  The City Band will commence a  series of weekly concerts in the Park  on Friday oventng, May 16th. Mr. N-  Bornholdt, the oonduotor, has written  a march which he has named "Kelowna," and dedicated to the Band president, Mr. D. W. Crowley; this will lie  ucludcd in the first programme.  The Lacrosse Club is going strong,  and the practices arc being well attended. A match has been arranged for  May 21th against Kamloops at the  Inhibition grounds, and praotfose are  taking place every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  Messrs. Casorso Bros, unloaded three  oars of fine grain-fed Alberta cattle  last Tuesday. Tho need of proper unloading facilities was very evident as  those animals, some sixty head, were  turned out from the cars. If any. of  these beasts had turned ugly only  strong, force of cow-boys oould have  prevented them from stampeding per  heps through tho town, when lives  might easily have been lost. The fail  ure of the O.P.B. to provide any kind  of pens to hold the cattle as they are  unshipped Is not only a great inoon-  venienco to those concerned, but a  souree of danger to the public  Vernon Convention on  Central Selling Agency  Decides to Incorporate Under  Companies Act  That the success of a Central  Selling Agency to handle the crop  of Okanagan fruit, at least for the  present year, depended upon  promptness of action was evidently  fully realized by, the delegates appointed from the various sections  of the valley, nnd they have certainly lost no time in dtawing up  in something like concrete form a  scheme for an organization, lhe  proposed rules and regulations of  which will be laid before meetings  of fruitgrowers in the different districts for their endorsation.  The convention of delegates was  held last week in Vernon from  Wednesday to Salurday, Mr. R.  Robertson, the government expert  present. Mr. J. E. Reekie was the  delegate appointed from the Kelowna district, and on his lefurn we  hunted him up for a talk on what  had been done at the convention.  The convention had come to a  perfectly unanimous decision, said  Mr. Reekie, as to the formation of  a central agency, and had already  instructed a solicitor lo go ahead  with the business of incorporation.  It was proposed to incorporate under the Companies Act, as a  straight business concern. The  reason for this was that in cases  where business was done with  firms in other provinces or other  countries there might be no doubt  as to their power to enforce their  contracts as might possibly be the  case with a co-opcralive concern.  The name suggested for the company was-lhe "Okanagan United  Growers, Ltd."  The central agency, continued  Mr. Reekie, would be under the  direct control of representatives  from the various local associations.  While the latter would-ba responsible for ihe packing and shipping  of the fruit and produce the central  agency would be charged wilh the  duty of finding the best possible  innkels and of obtaining the best  possible prices.  " Would the agency attempt to  sail direct to the consumer or  through the wholesale men and  friiit jobbers ?" Mr. Reekie was  asked.  "If satisfactory terms can De 8��'  from the jobbers," replied Mr.  Reekie, " it is the intention to deal  with them. They have all the  machinery for fruit selling. They  have their salesmen,equipment and  facilities already existing, and thev  should be able lo serve our inte:-  ests as well as their own. If however, it is found impossible to make  satisfactory terms with them, then  steps will have to be taken In go  beyond them and get into direct  touch with the retailer and consumer."  There had been recommended  atjtlie convention, conlinucd Mr.  Reekie, a policy of pooling all fruit  and produae, in the belief lhat all  fruit and vegetables of the same  variety and in the same grade  should git lhe same price no mailer where grown. Of course for  s< ft perishable fruit or produce  where an early maiket counted  for everything in the price received, a system of short time pools  of probably a dny or two would  have to be adopled so that the  grower who got hia produce in  early would get all lhe advantage  coming to him in the price.  It was propored to elect twenty-  six representatives from the various  districts to form lhe ceulrnl association. These would be apportioned  aa follows t Salmon Arm 2, Enderby I, Armstrong 6, Vernon 6,  Kelowna 6, Peachland I,Summer-  land 2 and Penticton 2. From  these representatives eleven directors would be elected, who would  form the actual board of control.  Each disirict would be represented on this board as follows : Sal  mon Arm I, Enderby I.Armstrong  2, Vernon 2, Kelowna 2, Peachland  I, Summerland I, and Penticton I.  The manager of the company  would be answerable to lhe directors. For urgent business an executive of three would be chosen  from 'the directors. One of the  qualifications of a director would  be that he was a grower of fruit  and produce on a commercial scale.  The head office of the company  would be located in Vernon.  Rowing Club Organized  A meoting was held last night in  Messrs. Coates, Edwards, und Gowen's  oflico for the purpose of discussing the  desirability of inaugurating a rowing  club, to be on Hod the Kelowna Bowing  Club, and to be affiliated with the  British Columbia Rowing Club. The  officers elected wore ns follows:���Pres.,  II. V. Rees, viee-prcs., B. W. Wilkinson  F. M. Dockland, D. W. Crowley, and  A. W. Bowser; committee, A..Kdwards  (chairman), D. Barnes, F. J. Foot, H.  0. Hillard, K. MoLsren, 0. M. Lucas.  It was stated tnat a boat could ba  purchased at Vancouver for 1800, and  that donations of two boats had already been promised ii the olub would  organize and produco a third. The  donors were the British North Amrica  Tobacco Co. and the D. W. Crowley  Co. A list of prospective subscribers  was therefore drawn up, Mr. Edwards  stating that ho had already been  promised the sum of $140.  In view of this promising outlook a  telegram was drawn up and addressed  to Messrs. Pocock Bros, of Vancouver,  ordering Ihe three boats to bs dis-  patohed as early as possible.  The boats ordered, known as !ap-  Vtreaks, are of the ordinary type of  four-oared racing skiffs, fitted with  out-riggers and sliding seats, and  should be a grent attraction on the  race programme nt tho Regatta.  The subscription to the rowing olub  has been fixed at 81.60, and a large  membership is looked for.  Empire Day Sports  A programme of sports and races is  being arranged for Empire Day, May  24th, and a meeting for the purpose  of appointing oommitteas^eto., was  held in Messrs. Elliot Si Copeland's  office Monday afternoon. The chair  was taken by Mr. L. Hayman, and the  following officers were elected:  President, Mr. L. Hayman; vioa-  prosident, Mr. E. Wilkinson; treasurer,  Mr. Geo. Robison; secretary, Mr. A.  1.. Meugens.  liuoo committee, Messrs. Upton,  Fraser, Edwards, Crowley, Horrocks,  and Buckland.  Athletic committee, Messrs. Colvin,  Whillis, Kennedy, B. Johnston, Horrocks, and Chief Sutherland.  The appointment of judges was left  to the committees.  The Okanagan Fruit Union is taking  steps to change its name to "Vernon"  Fruit Union, or something having a  local significance, so as not to conflict with any organization representing  lhe wholo Valley.  The provinoiul Labor Commission,  consisting of Messrs. H. G. Parsons,  of Golden, A. N. Harper, Vancouver,  .1. .Tardine, Victoria, R. A. Stoney,  New ' Westminster, J. A. McKelvie,  Vernon, and F. li. McNamara, of Victoria, held scleral sessions here last  Friday ond Saturday. The object, of  their tour of the principal towns of  the provinoe is tho gthering of information as to the conditions of labor  and employment.  Mr, Corneilus Martin is in town  this week having lately returned  from California. The rest of the  family are staying at the coast.  The annual meeting of the W.C.  T.U. will be held next Tuesday afternoon, May 13th at the Presbyterian Sunday School Hall. All  members are urgently requested to  be present.   Friends are welcome.  Mr. and Mrs. T. G. Lnnglois, of  Vancouver, were visiting in town  this week. Mr. Langlois is president of the B.C. Permanent Loan  Co., and National Finance, Ltd.,  and is connected with various  other leading financial concerns in  the west. He was in Kelownn  some six years ago and was much  impressed with the improvements  which had been made in the cily.  Speaking of the financial situation  he considered that the present  stringency in the money market  would continue tor some months  until the Balkan war trouble was  straightened out. Although there  were signs of a little easier condition at the present moment, it  would be long, he said, before the  bond or debenture sales would revive. Mr. Langlois was accompanied from Vernon here by Mr. J. Day,  of Ottawa, Mr. Crockett, of New  Brunswick, and Mr. Thornton, of  Vancouver, who continued their  journey to ither points down the  lake. Mr. and Mrs. Langlois left  yesterday morning for Vancouver.  Throughout the whole of the  meetings, said Mr. Reekie, the utmost good feeling prevailed, and it  was felt that at last a solution of  the marketing difficulties was in  sight.  After the convention tha provisional directors at Vernon entertained the delegates at a banquet  in the Hotel Kalamalka.  The meeting to receive Mr.  Reekie's report is' called for Wednesday afternoon next, May 14th,  at 2 p.m. It had been hoped, and  indeed announced, to be held tonight, but Mr. R. Robertson, who  it is very desirable should be present was called away suddenly lo  lhe coast, and the meeting had to  be postponed until the following  Wednesday.  Baseball Teams Ready  for Season  Baseball enthusiasts met in full  force during tho past week in Messrs.  Josselyn & Cooper's office when the  alfairs of the Kelowna club were set  in order for the season. Thefollow-  ing officers were elected: Pres., Mr.  F. S. Coates (hon.); pres., T. E.  Cooper; vioe-pree., T. Morrison; sec.-  treas., L. W. Colvin; manager, Geo.  Robison;   captain, A. W. Henning.  Finance conataittee, T. Treadgqld, Q.  Fuller, and L. W. Colvin.  The club had elected to make arrangements for joining the Southern  Okanagan Valley League, but it was  understood that Vernon, Kamloops,  and Knderby expected Kelowna to join  forces with them in the Northern  League, and to that ond had entered  Kelowna's name and drawn up a  schedule. The local olub now await  the decision of the Northern League in  tho matter. Affiliation with the clubs  from the north will mean some fast  play for our team, as it includes some  of tho finest teams in the interior of  the provinoe. If the alliance should  bo made games will be arranged to  take place on the 15th against Kamloops, and on the 24th against Revelstoke. A deposit of 1100 with the  secretary of tho League is required to  ensure continuity of affiliation.  Rutland News  Black Mountain School Honor  Roll  "San Toy "will be  Big Production  An announcement is made by the  Musical and Dramatic Society to the  effect that the musical comedy "San  Toy," whioh thoy have undertaken, is  progressing very well, and bids fair to  be a surprise even to tho optimistic  supporters of the local Society. A  great deal of hard work is being put  in by the individual members, and a  remarkable impetus has been given to  tho piece by the able superintendence  of Mr. A. L. Soames, who himself  played in "San Toy" for nearly a  year in the Old Country, and his eager  interest and determination to achieve  success for the production are responsible for the greater amount of enthusiasm now exhibited by all members of the Sooiety.  The business end, too, is being well  looked after, and eaoh separate office  is filled by tho right man in the right  place. Those behind the curtain feel  confident that the orchestra, for their  part, will use every effort to make  "San Toy" the best production ever  staged in Kelowna.  Tho vSooioty's officers wish it to be  known that sb a local conoern support  is solicited from all friends ot the  members, and to this end the general  public may become non-active members  for the sum of 19 eaoh. This donation  entitles the subscriber to access to tho  plan of seats forty-eight hours before  I  is open to the general public  With many new adherents the Society feels in a position to guarantee a  really first-class entertainment St for  the stage of nny large oity. The  secretary, Mr. B. G. Meyrick, informs  us that he will be glad to hear from  all who dosire to participate actively  or otherwise.  Leo Bon and Lee Wing were before  the magistrate this week for selling  liquor without a licence. The former  was sentenced to six months imprisonment, and the latter fined $20 and  costs or 30 days.

Mrs. Barolay, who has been spending the past month in town has join-  lior brother, Mr. Benson, on his ranch.  Mr. Lionel Taylor's orchard has been  lovelled and marked preparatory to  planting.  Mr. and Mrs. Jenkins and family, of  Lennoxville, Que., are staying with  Mr. Georgn K-rr before moving on to  the;r own ranch.  Mr. Tuckey has the contract for Mr.  Lewis' barn, and will commence the  building operations at once.  At the opening of the Kelowna  Lawn Tennis Club last week a number  of Glenmore people were present, including Mr. McDougall, the Misses  McDougall, Mrs. Wake, and Mr. and  Mrs. C. A. MaoLeay.  Mr. Martin Perry who has so successfully managed tbe B3.P. ranches  for the past season, has accepted a  position as travelling salesman with  the British North American Tobacco  Company.  Messrs. A. H. DrydsdaVle, J. M.  Ritchie, and C. Whittam, have each  contracted for a number of acres of  tobaoco with the Tobacco Company.  Cartercar Stands Heavy Teit  A most unusual motor oar tost was  made last week when Teddy Tetzlaff,  the great racing driver, went for a  drive over the country roads of California in a Cartercar. Tetzlaff has  always driven the most powerfully  geared racing cars he could secure,  but when ha drove the Cartercar up  60 per cent, grades and on the rough  oountry roads st the rate of 55 miles  per hour, he was astonished, and enthusiastically declared that the oar  was a wonder.  Tetzlaff is an expert mechanician,  bat he would hardly believe that such  efficiency oould be embodied in such a  simple oar. The Cartercar is the car  which has been attracting ao much  attention because of its ability to  climb 60 per cent, grades and carry a  full load at the sametime.  This was the first car to successfully adopt the simple form of gear-  less transmission, aud although it has  not been pushed to any great extent,  it is to-day one of themost popular  medium priced cars.  "We have only one nun in our complaint department," says Mr. Harry  II. Radford, vice-president and general;  manager of the Cartercar Company,  "and he is going to be transferred,,  and his work added to the duties of  the Assistant Sales Manager."

E. \V. Bean, of Sydney, haa writ-  tan in un Australian paper tat tb*  great sheep industry. His story is tn  part as follows:���     ff>  A century ago, when Australia was  a dumping ground (or Enctvid'e  *��m, a British fleet received Irom a  Spanish fleet a present si metvm  sheep, at a time wiien to export ma-  rinos from Spain wan & criminal ot-  fence. The little fleck reached Australia, and trom it aie descended Use  hundred million merinos whien have  inudo Australia great and wealthy,  despite her small population.  Vastly improved is the modern Marino, for the original of 3 1-1 poaode  to a fleece has bein raiaed ts M  pounds, aud there uc rams la Aoa-  tralia which shear 40 pounds.  Nowadays the good land near tbe  coast is being given jver to agritnja-  ture, and the sheep ure driven baek  further into the desnrt. A tasriba*  desert it is at times, where not one  green leaf can be seen, when the red  dust with which it ia oovered gats  blown away���and only the bare nard  bones ofthe earth are lift. Than ihfiip  die by tbe million fur waot at Use  smallest scrap of nourishment, aad  are sometimes killed hy tb* thotMsd  because it is hopeless te eipeot ta  keep tliem alive.  Then comes tue ruin, aud as it by a  miracle the whole land is green again,  lhe flocks increase out of all bosnda,  and the men who have been nearly  ruined, make new fortune* in a few  years. That is happening now. From  irtiii to 1803 occurred the biggest  drought known, and many station-  holders lost their all. Since Mho  there has been a steady saeeeaaion  of good seasons and the proUasa new  is what to do with the enormous overplus of old ewes. Such are the viea*.  aitudei of that strange land, the oldest  pari of the earth's exposed curiae*.  Some of the great Jieep runs oover  u million acres, or about 1,560 square  miles. Each run is divided into paddocks, which oover all AuatiaUa. The  average western paddock contains *O0  square allies. If one fence is on the  horizon behind, the other is oner the  uorirpn uhead. Vou could walk till  >ou died ill that paddock without seeing a fence. [.out men have besbre  now found the fence und died aleng-  iide uf it before it led them anywhere.  There may he a hut in each ped-  ioclt with a boundary rider���sometimes two. living together. Bvcry day  except fun.lay. the boundary rider I*  sxpeoted to be out in his paddock.  About one day in two he may spot  somethinf l;ke a Hue of posts, which  is in-.ibal, \ a line oi sheep in mirage  un the liurizon. Occasionally he cuts  through' n wing of them. He aaaa a  man, or gets u mail, perhaps, once in  tniee weens: And yet, the boundary  men get to like the lonely life.  Then, there is "the boss," the lord  of many acres, a inun of strong character and a liberal education, living a  life not unlike thai of au English  jouutry gentleman, in his remote  home, but carrying oi, his work with  the ability and keenness of a man  who has been trained in business.  The third body of men who live by  the sheep industry are tbe shearer*,  who work through the country from  north te south, making plenty of  money, and living in a rough way on  th* rat of the land as they pass irom  en* shed to the other. They are a  clam unlike any other.  The   Ptdlcemnn's   Dangerous   Life.  About one in every six Londen  policeman ia injured during the year.  More than one thousand men were  en tbe aick list from injuria* received  while on duty, and nearly seven  hundred mora who were injured ott  duty. Some of the cases were so  serious as lo disable the men for a  week or more, and these amounted  to no fewer than 677. Resides these,  there were twice as many injured leas  severely, who were not placed on tb*  sick list.  The following examples show the  multiplicity ol danger* lo which the  police are exposed: 2,200 men were  assaulted or injured when making arrests; 109 bitter, by dogs; 61 hc/t by  persons not arrested; 17 iujured while  difpersing disorderly crowds; 44  hurt, some very severely, when stopping runaway horses; 21 injured  when assisting fallen or restive  horse*; 86 kicked, trodden on, or  knocked down by horses; 31 injured  (14 very severely) by vehicles when  regulating traffic: and 28 were injur,  ed when extinguishing fires.  And a further large number suffered injury by their horse" falling or  throwing them, by cyclists, while rid.  ing their own bioycleB, ul fire drill,  by slipping and falling when ex.  ���mining premises, etc., no that th*  total of injuries while on duty for  the year is brought up to 3,310.  W     An  Honest  Man.  A preacher near Rloomabury, Eng.,  pew fervent in exhorting to nn honest  living, and near thc close of his sermon he said: "Lei every person in  the house who is paying his or her  debt* (tand up." Instantly every  man and woman in the house, save  one, was standing. After they were  peacefully seated, the domini asked:  Ttow let those stand up who are not  paying their debts." und a long lean  man of sixty or more years, clothed  tn * seedy suit of the past decsds,  ���lowly assumed a perpendicular position in hi* pew. "How is it, my  friend," enquired the minister la  austere tone, "that yeu are the only  one in this intelligent congregation  who do** not meet hi* obligation*!'"  The lanky Individual meekly answer,  ed, "I ran a nawapapar, and the  brethren here ar* my twbscribers,  .nd"���the minister broil* tn abruptly  with, "We wtB elaae with tb* benediction."

But most important of all is the Economizer.  This {clever device for regulating the drafts  saves 1 ton of coal in every 6 that you would  burn in the ordinary range. It takes the smell of  cooking out of the kitchen and sends it up the  chimney.   You know what that means.  The Economizer enables you to absolutely  control the amount of coal you wish to consume and still have a perfect heat for cooking.  It will enable you to keep your fire going  while you go out shopping or visit your neighbor, and all that is necessary for you to do  on your return is to press the small lever and  you are assured of a hot fire in a very few moments.  A Gurney-Oxford stove is sanitary���no dirt  can accumulate on its beautifully smooth surface.  Its top is polished steel which abolishes forever that dreadful operation ��� blacking the stove.'  Of paramount interest also are the other  remarkable and exclusive attachments ��� the  Special Grate, the Divided Flue and the Broiler.  Every woman who knows owns a Gurney-  Oxford.  D.

JAMES &TRENWITH  Pendozi Street North, Kelowna, B.C.  Mr. W. Beaver Jones, the newly  appointed Publicity Commissioner  for Kelowna, and Secretary of the  Board of 1 rade lias taken up his  duties with the beginning of the  month, and as a first consideration  which might be said to rank before  everything else is reviving lhe  agitation tor the much needed first  class toutist hotel.  He writes as follows :  To the Editor of  'The Kelowna Record."  Dear Sir,���It Is admitted on every  hand that Kelowna offers unequalled opportunities as a popular-tourist centre���of being unrivalled in  this respect in the whole of West-.  em Canada.  ,n no small degree it can truly  be said that Kelowna stands alone  in its natural charms. Transplant  an inhabitant of ar^y ofthe cities of  the " bald headed" 'prairies here  and show him, if it were only the  magnificent Ukanagnn Lake, let  him breathe the nerve-building air  of the valley, and ask him if he  would prefer Banff, the general  Mecca of the tourist from the plain?.  But there would be no need for  one to ask the question.  If it be agreed that Kelowna  offers peculaf natural inducements  from a tourist's point of view, it ia  also equally recognized that thc  first step toward this end must be  the erection of a first-class tourist  and commercial hotel.  Several suggestions hnve, 1 believe, already been discussed, and  certain sites have from time to  lime been brought forward ; bul  while ecah patty vied with each  other in their proposition, and perhaps they were all good, the ultimate object of each the  development of Kelowna, has been  defeated.  That the city will have a first-class  hotel there is not much doubt, the  need is obvious and does not require enlargement; and I am making this my first business as Publicity Commissioner in my endeavor  to spread the fame of the fair  Okanagan valley as a ideal tourist  resort.  There are many excellent locations, the only question is which is  the best, and I would be happy to  discuss the situation without delay  with owners of suitable sites.  W.
