James, (lashlrght battery 75  Kelowna Sawmill Co., lumber   and  hauling sawdust  110.10  A letter was received from the  Provincial secretary conveying the  information that Aid. H. W. Raymer and Mr. E. Weddell, had been  appointed members of the Board  of Licensing Commissioners; and  that Aid. R. A. Copeland and Mr.  Geo. Rowcliffe had been appointed  members of the Board of Police  Commissioners for the city.  A letter was read from tl (a Canadian Westinghouse Company, in  answer to a complaint which had  been made respecting the working  of the new generator at the power  house. The company promised to  look into the matter and expressed  its willingness to remedy any defect due to bad workmanship.  Aid. Millie had a grievance in  respect to the matter. He complained that as a member of the  light committee he had a right to  know all the circnmstances connected with the unsatisfactory work  ing of the generator. He had not  been shown the correspondence  relating to the matter and knew  nothing about it until that morning.  He asked if any report had been  presented by the engineer regarding the working of the generator.  A report from engineer Colquette  which had been forwarded to the  Westinghouse Company was read  by the clerk. The report pointed  out that the generator showed that  the temperature rose very high in  one spot, indicating a defect in the  winding of the armature. The matter had been brought to the attention of the Westinghouse Company  and they had promised to have the  defect remedied.  In answer to Aid. Millie's charge  Aid. Sutherland said that the detect had been brought to his notice  by Aid. Millie himself, along with  the engineer.  Aid. Sutherland reported on be  half of the special committee ap  pointed to enquire into the local  telephone charges. The committee had conslted Messrs. McPhil-  lips and wood, lawyers of Vancouver.  They had delivered a lengthy  opinion upon the matter, the substance of which waa that the new  company had powers to enter the  city under a provincial charter, and  that the rates charged were subject to approval only of the Lieutenant-Governor in council.  It was decided that the committee appointed should stand  for the present to go into some  other features of the matter.  Aid. Copeland, on behalf of the  Board of Works reported that some  steps had been taken towards  draining off the surface water from  the streets. Not much could be  done, however, on account of the  frost. A temporary drain had been  put in on Water street, opposite  the old cannery, and in various  places all old drains which were  available had been opened up.  The Board proposed to proceed  with tin building of the tool shed  as soon as plans could be submitted.  Dr. S. C. Richards waited on the  council regarding a stable which  he was desirous of erecting to the  rear of his house. A question had  been raised as to whether the  building would comply with the  by-law. A public stable built in  that location had to be of fireproof materials and over $1,500 in  value. Dr. Richards claimed that  his stable was not intended for a  public one, but was purely for his  own private use.  It was decided to refer the matter to the city solicitor.  Aid. Sutherland pointed out that  the Light and Water Committee  would soon have to get to work  ordering supplies. There was also  the new intake to put in. There  was about $1350 on hand, and it  would be well for the council to  authorize the committee to use  this.  A resolution was passed " that  the Lignl and Water Committee be  empowered to purchase supplies  necessary for their department and  that they have power to use the  funds on hand for that purpose."  Mayor Jones mentioned that it  would be necessary to look out  for someone to take charge of the  assessment work for the city. The  former assessor, Mr. J. L. Doyle,  would not he available this yeat.  it would be well to advertise for  someone to fill his place.  An alteration in the plan of the  Wilson subdivision which had  been approved of at a former mooting made it necessary to rescind  the motion then passed, and substitute another in il-i place. The  alteration had been made to enable Cawston Avenue to go straight  through to the city limits.  Aid. Sutherland drew attention  to the inconvenience which was  being caused the city clerk by the  number of real estate men w  came into the office to consult the  city map. There seemed to be a  great many real estate men in town  now, and very few were in possession of a map of the city. He sug  gested that a fee be charged for  searches made in the city office.  He thought it would be a good  thing if the office were supplied  with a counter.  Mayor Jones said it waa desirable  that the city should have offices  where a vault was available for the  storage of valuable documents.  They whuld have to take that into  consideration before undertaking  anv improvements in the present  office.  Aid. Taylor thought the city  would do better to build its own  offices. They would never have a  more suitable time for the securing  of a central site.  Aid. Raymer agreed that the city  should own a suitable building.  Aid. Taylor suggested that for  the present the clerk should make  use of the safe deposit boxes that  had been installed by the Royal  Bank.  Aid. Raymer asked if any com  munication from the People's Trust  Co., in reference to the erection of  a tourist hotel to which the clerk  replied that there was not.  The following resolution was  pnssed :-  " That a charge of 25c. for every  search made in the office of the  city clerk be made hereafter, except  in cases of tax certificates, when a  charge of $ I will be ii.ade, also  that the office be divided into two  parts."  Aid. Raymer mentioned that  complaint had been made to him  by Mr. Storey of the use of a vacant lot by Dr. Boyce for storing  lumber.  The danger of piling lumber in  close proximity to buildings was  discussed, and it was suggested  that it might be advisable to introduce a by-law dealing with the  matter.  Aid. Blackwood pointed out that  the Lumber Company's teams were  diiving over the cement sidewalk  and chipping the edge.  The meeting then adjourned to  Monday next, February 12th.  At the request of a number of  citizens the Board of Trade ia holding a public meeting in Ravmer'a  Small Hall, Saturday evening, Feb.  10th, at 8 p.m., for the purpose of  discussing the formation of a local  telephone company.  Laymen's Missionary  Banquet  Enthusiastic Gathering at  the  Methodist Church  The visit of the Rev. Dr. White,  Superintendent of Missions for  B.C., and the holding of the third  annual Laymen's Missionary Banquet, were events of unusual  interest in Kelowna Methodist circles during the week.  Dr. White, who is an old-timer  of the district and a moat genial  personality, conducted the services  all day Sunday in the Methodist  church Preaching in the morning  on missionary work, and to the  children in the afternoon on " Imagination and Babies," Mr. White  seemed to reserve his best for the  evening service, when, preaching  in a racy style from Matt. x. 34, he  showed how the Gospel affected  the great social and industrial revolutions of to-day, and incidentally p-inted out the bitter animosity existing between master and  man generally.  Banner day, however, was Monday, when about 140 friends sat  down to a sumptuous missionary  supper, prepared by the Indies of  the W. M. S. Chicken, veal, and  ham were amongst the dainties  spread in a most tasteful manner  on the three long tables, at the  head of which Mr. J. A. Bigger  presided as chairman.  Supper over, Mr. W. A. Fuller  led the company  in  singing "On  ward    Christian     Soldiers,'  after  which Rev. J. W. Davidson, R.A.,  B.D., pastor of the church, in a few  fitting words welcomed the guests  Cupt. Knight having pioposed  the health of His Majesty King  George, and the company responding with a stanza of the National  Anthem, Mr. W. E. Adams proposed the second toast: "Our  Debt to the Foreigner." We were,  he said, living in the most critical  period of the world's history, and  if the ideal���" The world for Christ  in this generation "���it was up to  them as Methodists. The foreigner  had just the same right to live as  they had.  Mr. W. E. Cooper, seconding  the toast said, We owe a debt of  sympathy to the foreigner we could  only pay by love, and that, given  modern educational facilities, the  colored races were every whit  equal to the white.  " Our W. M. S." was proposed  by Mr. L. Dilworth, who confined  his remarks chiefly to interesting  statistics regarding the Society, and  said it was one every woman  should sustain  In seconding, Mrs. J. W. Jones  gave a moat interesting account of  the birth of the Society in 1801, at  Hamilton, when it raised $5,000  for missionary work. Last year  it raised $ 136,000. At the present  time, she said, there was not one  Methodist circuit in Canada where  the W. M. S. was not represented,  and the Kelowna branch was the  strongest in the Okanagan district,  Mayor Jones proposed " The  Chairman of Our District," and  spoke in appreciation of the work  of the Rev. John Robson. A  future was before the church they  could not span or even conceive.  Replying, Rev. John Robson,  B.A., Chairman of the District,  gave a brief sketch of the growth  of the church in the surrounding  circuits, bringing in some remarkable figures, showing how rapidly  it had grown. Railways, he said,  were fast opening up large tracts  of land, and men were settling in  in lonely places without either  church influence or religious en.  vironment. Travelling missionaries  were badly needed, but that again  meant funds, and wheie were they  to come from ? It rested with the  church people.  " Our Superintendent of Missions," was next proposed by Mr.  J. A. Bigger. Dr. White, he said,  had been in the work no less than  35 years, and 9 years as superintendent. He was a man beloved  by all, especially the loggers  amongst whom a great part of his  work had been accomplished.  Kelowna friend" should and did  feel honored by his presence.  Acknowledging the toaBt, Dr.  White remarked on the warm welcome that had been extended to  him.   He waa afraid he might be  Continued en psf. 9  Rutland News.  From our own correspondent.

Freight Sheds  The fire brigade were culled out  at 10 o'clock last night to an outbreak of fire in one of the C.P.R.  freight sheds. There was a little  delay in getting the alarm turned  in to the power-house, and the fire  had gained considerable hold before the brigade arrived. The  flames were soon subdued, however, when the two powerful jets  of water were brought to bear  upon them and very soon all  danger to surrounding buildings  waa over. There was, fortunately,  very little wind at the time, and  that was out to the lake and away  from the other sheds, the one in  ���vhich the fire occurred being that  facing the lake.  The shed contained some fifteen  tn twenty tons of baled hay, some  of it belonging to the Farmers'  Excnange.

Lecture Courses on  Fruitgrowing  Interesting  Program  by Government Experts  Very much greacer efforts, we  have been promised, are to be  made this year by the Department  of Agriculture to foster the fruit  industry, which year by year is  assuming proportions which make  it a matter to be reckoned with  amongst the many industries of  the province. Largely increased  grants, we understand, are to be  set aside not only for systematizing  the industry and securing the latest  information on markets and marketing methods, but in spreading  a knowledge of the most up-to-  date scientific cultural methods,  which must be adopted if fruitgrowing is to be placed upon a  permanent and successful basis.  Last year the horticultural branch  undertook to give short coursis of  instruction in the various fruitgrowing districts, and the scheme  met with the most favourable reception all over the province.  This year the couises are to be  repeated under the auspices of  I armors' Institute, on a much more  efficient and better arranged plan.  Instead of, as last year, Kelowna  having one course,split up amongst  (he various districts, each section  is to have its own complete course  of one or two davs as the case  may be.  Tho public is cordially invited to  be present at all or any of the lectures. Not only fruit-growers and  vegetable gardeners, but men in  all branches of farming, will find  the lectures on soils, cultivation and  plant growth of valne to them.

Love   Analysed   its   u   Disease,   and  Medical itfuu Offers Treatment  for Misplace*? Affection.  A London doctor has been analysing  the disease calli'd love. From a psychologist's standpoint he defines what  Is popularly known us "falling in  love" as a mere crystallisation of a  whole set of emotional tendencies and  ideas round some object. This  "nucleus of Ideas may become  solidified and grow in strength," and  to see that It dot'.-' .so is the tank of  the psychologist, always providing, of  Dourae, that the remuneration makes  It worth bin while to cull Into play  hie weird and wonderful powers.  Granted a generous reward on an  cash butilH, our psychologist adviser  will "unravel our mental tangles and  cure our bud habits." But these  trifles are merely dealt with by the  way, when trade U bad and lovers  possibly may be scarce. Under ordinary circumstances the task Bet  himself by the psychologist is "particularly to remedy cases of unrequited love or Jealousy " This gentleman will "educate and divert these  Ideas - provided the subject is willing ��� so that the loved object may  become a men* annoying incident In  one's life." Further good news 1b  contained in the declaration that  'husbands and wives who set bored  with each other ma) he made happy  and contented in each other's society." It is altogether a glorious  vista that 'his modem warlock opens  up to humanity His subtle spells  and magically amu!rod powers will  give us ��� at a certain fee per head  - a taste of the fearful joys uf a  charlatan's etyslum We smugly pride  ourselves thai we live In an enlightened age; hut the appearance of the  psychic treatment for misplaced affection and other Ills to which we are  heirs suggests some doubts on the  fact.

Should   Keep  Auu.\   from  a   Mulsl  Environment*  Dampness is Injurious because of  the favourable environment It provides for bacterial growth; It affects  Ihe health by reducing the supply of  life-giving oxygen and il prevents the  hody from performing its norma)  function of elimination.  A damp atmosphere makes us feel  t��old This In turn uffeets the sweat  ducts, which lire to keep in the,  animal warmth of the body, and the  iweat glands ceaaa filtering out of  Ihe blood the Imimrltles they are intended to eliminate, These impurities  are then thrown hack on the kidneys  and littles fur removal, or are retained  within the system to crystallite in  the   form   of   uric   acid,   and   cause  rheumatism or Rout.

Naturally, if  this air Is taken from a place where  [he air Is pure und of normal quality,  tlie amount of oxygon available for  the blood Will be appreciably more  than If taken from a dump place  where the humidity in the air has  reduced the amount of oxygen and  the air Is tainted with musty odors  and gases of putrefaction and decay.

Kail) School Text.Booki  The earliest text-book fur the instruction of children was the hornbook. Invented in 145(1 and used up  to thu cloae of Ihe eighteenth century. A thin slab of hardwood was  covered with parchment, on which  wore printed the capital and small  loiters, numerals, and somo elementary syllables and words. Over  this a thin sheet or transparent cow's  horn was placed and firmly bouud.  This, the Bible, and the sampler on  which little girls painfully stitched  the letters of the alphabet, and a  border of "herring-bone Htltch," or  Bome conventional pattern of Impossible flowers and foliage, comprised  tho bulk of the education given until  the commencement of the eighteenth  century.

Hit Him Again  A church home in a certain rural  district was sadly in need of repairs. The official board had called a meeting to see what could be  done toward raising the necessary  funds. One of the wealthiest and  stingiest of the adherents arose and  said that he would give five dollars  and sat down.  Just then a bit of plastering fell  from the ceiling and hit him squarely upon the head, whereupon he  jumped up, looked confused and  said: " I er~I mean I'll give fifty  dollar?," then again resumed his  seat. After a brief silence a voice  was heard to say, " Oh Lord, hit  'in. again I"  It's generally the fellow who  does not know any better who  does the thing that can't be done.

Science  Shows  that  Overfeeding Is  Responsible for Many Ills Unit  Affect Mankind.  It la surely a reflection on our present-day "civilisation" to find that we j  are still immersed In, surrounded by,  and suffering from an Incalculable  amount of Illness and disease In every  shape and form, says a scientific  writer, who claims over feeding Is at  the root of the evil, and suggests a reform In our dietary that would  eliminate disease, and maintain the  average human frame In sound health.  Advocating a two-meal-a-day plan, he  says:  "if we would only, after rising In  the morning, Walt some two or three  hours, exercise a little, or do some  work, the whole system would be far  more ready to digest and assimilate  the food; therefore, it would be Infinitely better for most of us If we  would lake our flrBt meal at eleven  or twelve o'clock, with nothing whatever before that, unless It be a little  fruit; then wait for some six, seven,  or eight hours before we have our  second meal; we should thus have  allowed sufficient time for the organB  of digestion to empty themselves  thoroughly; and be It remembered  again, that It Is not until such organs  are thus emptied of food that actual  Incorporation of food into the tissues  takes place. 1 must Impress on my  readers It Is only that which Is incorporated, and not what is eaten,  which nourishes us.  "This plan of two meals a day  would alone be the means nf renovating iu the case of many diseases. I  see men and women constantly whom  1 know will, sooner or later, have a  fit of apoplexy, simply because their  blood vessels are over-charged, or  have become degenerate through overfeeding. There are thousands of  deaths annually due to tills cause, and  most of such are preventable."  A NOTED SCIENTIST  It Is eighty years since the British  ABOBOlation first met. One of Its  avowed objects was the "removal of  any disadvantages of a public kind  which Impede tho progress of  Science." Science la able now to rehire the compliment. At last the  voice of Science, in the person of Sir  William Ramsay, the ('resident, has a  practical message that will bring tlie  country to a knowledge of the limitation of its national resources, and of  the nature of national economy. Sir  William Ramsay is a Scot. He was  horn at Glasgow on the second of  October, l.Siil Like so many other  famous Scots, he passed through the  Edinburgh Academy and the University. That was In tho days when  German learning dazzled thinking  Britain; so Tubingen marked his next  step. In 1874 he became Tutorial  Assistant of Chemistry at Glasgow  University, and at the age of twenty-  eight obtained his first Professorship  at University College, Bristol, a  "chair" wliich he held for seven years,  at the end of which time he became  Principal or the College. So far as  the general public is concerned tlie  two outstanding features of Sir William's life are his knighthood, which  was conferred in 1902,nnd his research  into the properties of radium. His  paper on argon, written in conjunction with Lord Hayleigh, lends us  into the purely scientific domain,  wherein the properties of helium,  radium and tho products of pitchblende are as yet sealed questions to  the layman. Scientific research has  reached a point at which the discovery of new practical qualities In  minerals and new arrangements of  heat or force-producing matter may  at any time be made. To Sir William  Ramsny In Britain and to Madame  Curie In France tlie mnn of to-day 1b  looking for developments.  Cheap Aerophones  Anyone will be able to buy a complete outfit for aerophonlng for $100  in a little whllo. Sir Wm. Bull, tho  chairman of the Grlndell-Mntthews  Wireless Telephone Syndicate, told an  Interviewer that this would probably  be the price of Uie two necessary  small boxefl, and it Is expected that  before long the aerophone will be  lu everyday use. "One of the largest  firms of financiers In England,"  snld Sir William, "have taken  a great Interest In the Invention. They allowed us to  use their strong-room for experiments. The room Is built of chilled  ���teal, and Is air-tight, so that our  operator could only remain In It for  10 minutes. In thai time he got connected with another operator on the  roof of the building. Experiments have  also been successfully carried out  and I, myself, have In the early  stages of the Invention spoken  'through' the walls of a suite of  rooniB." Tho two boxes which complete the outfit are about nine cubic  Inches each, nnd aro made of mahogany.  Science for Its Own Sake.  Blr James Dcwar recently pointed  out that the whole cost of a century's  research of experiments at the British  Hoyal Institution has been only about  ��120,000.

"Were it not for an agriculture of  InoredlHe ptrlnttaklng: the fertility of  the soil would have been spent ages  ago.

TOUT "il AT LlOrBS" MJUJ.8  A Well Known Phrase to Most People,  but Few are Familiar with Its  Real Significance.  In the first place, It may be aa well  to explain that Lloyd's It not an insurance company. It is simply a combination of Individual members, each  member transacting his own business,  but being bound by the common rules.  Iu other words, Lloyd's does not insure as a body, all business being  transacted by Individual members.  These members divide the rlBk, each  member taking a small proportion  only.  Thus, In the case of a policy for  15000 It Is quite probable that the  rlBk would be split up between ten  members. Each of these members  would sign the policy, stating the  amount of risk undertaken. As the  Blgnn'ures are written on the policy  one under the other, the meaning of  the term "underwriter" becomes apparent.  In the case of a large policy, there  may be columns of names, and so It  would happen that should a vessel be  wrecked no Individual person  would be responsible for the whole  Ios6, In Ihe case of disaster no member would have to pay more than  the amount underwritten by him. It  frequently happens that the fractional  risk taken'by an underwriter may be  underwritten again by other people,  who will thus shnre Mb loss, If Buch  occurs.  Lloyd's was started about the year  HISS by Edward Lloyd, the first of  the Lloyds, who kept a coffee shop In  Tower Street, and who at the same  time provided such facilities for  marine insurance that his name has  always remained as the title of the  association of underwriters who  transact  business under its auspices.  Lloyd's grew and prospered. So  much so that the members made  fortunes. The years 1811 and 1871  were red letter yeurs in the history  of Hie association, the former witnessing the organisation of the company on the lines on which It is still  conducted, and the latter tlie Act of  Incorporation.  In every port and upon every coast  Lloyd's are represented, and at the  present moment there are no less than  5000 agents stationed nil over the  globe. The movements of every ship  from point to point are known lo  these men, and, as they are In constant communication with headquarters iu London, the latter are in  a position to answer all inquiries relative to vessels in which Lloyd's aro  interested.  Marine Insurance and marine information are the specialities of  Lloyd's, but everv kind of risk is  undertaken. The underwriters will  insure any porson Pgnlnst practically  any Imaginable contingency.

German natural historical periodicals are calling attention to an ln-  terestlng change in the habits of wild  rabbits, especially in the western  parts of Germany. The animals in  question are giving up their ancient  habit of burrowing, and have commenced In great part to Imitate the  hares, which, as is well known, nest  nnly above ground. The hares themselves were once burrowera, and  gradually went through the same  change in habits in this particular"  that appears to oheraeterl7e the rabbits at the present day - at any rate  iu Germany. In woods where the  undergrowth Is th'ck, and which are  therefore especially suitable to the  rabbits, they find biding places In  plenty for their nests; and even in  open country, unwooded - and the  rabbita seems to be taking more and  more to the open ��� they take refuge  in board-piles, ruhb'sli-heai'H. brush-  piles, brlclt-kilns, drnlli-plpos, and  ditches that are overgrown with  weeds. The female maVes little  fortresses for her yourig, to protect  them from the cannibalistic propensities of the mate; she liars the neat  warmly with fur from her own breast,  visits them secretly al n'ght, and  perhaps Buckles them once more  during the 24 honr.i; bill each time  that slip leaves them she carefully  plies rubbish before the opening  which Ip'ids to her defenseless family,  nnd defiles the obstructions with  ordure.  INTERESTING 0CEAS FACTS  Complete  Evaporation  Would  Leave  an Immense Deposit ol' Salt Two  Hundred   and   Thirty   reel  Th ek.  Oceans occupy three-fourths of the  earth's surface. At the depth of 3,500  feet waves are not felt. The temperature is tlie same, varying only a trifle  from the poles to the burning sun of  the equator. A mile down the water  has a pressure uf a ton on every  square inch. If a box six feet deep  were filled with salt water and allowed to evaporate, there would be  two Inches of salt left on the bottom  of the box. Taking the average depth  of the oceans of the world to be three  miles, there would be a layer of salt  280 feet thick over the entire bed  Bhould the water evaporate, The  water of the oce;iu Ik colder at the  bottom than at the surface, In many  places especially iu the bays on the  -oast of Norway, the water freezes at  the bottom before it does above.  Waves are very deceptive. To look  at them lu a storm one would think  that the whole water travelled. The  water slays in the same place, but the  motion goes on. BoinolimeB iu storms  these waves are forty foot high and  travel fifty miles per hour ��� nearly  twice as fust as the fleetest steamship. The base of a wave - - the distance from valley to valley on either  side  at   the   bottom Is   generally  reckoned at being 16 limed the height.  therefore an average wave, say one  :!& feet high, has a base extending  over 27!. feet. The force of waves  breaking on the shore is said to be  17 tons to the square yard.  He liuod Winter Traffic  No better evidence of tlie increased  Western traffic is needed than the  statement that this year certain rail  road services which In former winters  hove always been dropped, are this  year being retained, nnd In some  cases added to. A leading official  states that Ibis year the Canadian  Pacific Railway intends to run its St.  Caul-HeattJe through trains, all winter  whereas   In    former   winters    this  through service was always dropped.  The source or the increased traffic  between these two "its Is attributed  to the growing Interest in the Canadian Rooky Mountains. Kor the last  five or six years tourists from the  United States have been literally  pouring into Canada through C. P. R.  connections at St. Paul and Seattle  the greater number having the Rocky  Mountains and the resorts at Banff  Pleld, Emerald Lake and Glacier, as  their destination.  Electrocuted  i ������:-  It is possible that the peculiar taste  of a cold storage egg, which is something not easy to mistake, may be  removed If experiments now being  made by an electrical company are  successful. It is claimed that when  fresh eggs are placed In cold storage  the eggs are alivp; that they are slowly frozen to death, and that In spite  of the preservation nu.-Utlns of the  Ice the eggs do not tSSte good when  cooked. It is now believed that by  electrocuting the eggs the natural  fresh taste may be retained and not  removed when the eggs are placed in  cold storage. The eggs are "killed"  by placing a metal dip on each end  of the egg and then pnslsug through  them a current of 500 volts.  Geologic Work of Ants.

This new invention  has startled the entire Pacific coast.  The money it will make, the dividends the company will be able to  pay their stockholders is almost  beyond comprehension. Canada  burns over eight carloads per day.  Eddie, of Hull, has made millions  from the match industry, and yet he  has been confined to the most expensive wood, white cork pine, at $60  per thousand feet, for match sticks.  The new process uses the cheapest  of wood���Alder, at $8 per thousand  feet���and eliminates over half of the  New Westminster, B.C.  December 21, 1911.  To whom it May Concern,���  At the time that the project of establishing a match factory in  British Columbia was first brought to the attention of the business men  in New Westminster, the Secretary of the Board of Trade, Mr. Wade,  went into the matter very thoroughly in the interest of the town and at  the request of the leading members of the Board of Trade. Mr. Wade  went to Tacoma and saw the plant with the Pacific Coast Match Factory  in operation there, using the Parker Process of manufacture. After  satisfying himself in all respects concerning the process and the men  interested in it, Mr. Wade recommended it highly to the Board of Trade  as an industry which Westminster should secure, and urged all the  business men to support it in every way.  I, alsoi had the pleasure of visiting the Tacoma factory only a few  weeks ago, and saw it in operation turning out first-class matches. Their  success is limited entirely by the amount of their output in my estimation.  I am also acquainted with the gentlemen who are interested in the  establishment of the Dominion Match Co., and am satisfied as to their  integrity, their standing in their own community, their absolute bona fide  in the establishment of the Dominion Match Company and the factory  which is to be built at New Westminster. Any articles or statements  contrary to what I have written are, in my opinion, absolutely unfounded.  A. E. WHITE,  President New Westminster Board of Trade.  hand labour. Think of the money  the Company will make. Come in  while you can. A few months and  the stock in the new Company will  be out of your reach. Come and see  the machine and back your own judgment with what money you can comfortably spare, and share in the profit  of the Dominion Match Co.  The factory is now under construction at New Westminster, B.C., which,  when completed, will have a capacity  of one carload per day, which will  net the Company over ��1,400 profit.  Counting 300 working days to the  year, there would be over $400,000  available for dividends, which would  be equal to 40 per cent, on the  entire capitalization of $1,000,000.

These gentlemen discovered that the child wns possessed  of tile most wonderful pair of eyos,  tile sight penetrating HiibxUincies lu  Uie same fashion as the X-rays.  Dr. VSrrronl, of Nnrbonne, and Dr.  I.nih.-et, of Montpelller, some ) cui .  back examined a young girl of Nar-  boiuie, and she was found lo possess  eye* similar to those of Lionel Brett.  Experiments proved U.ut she eoulu  ���ea through opaque bodies ua clearly  and penetratingly as If her eyes generated   Kontgen   rays.  Another child possessed of wundor-  ful eight was a Uerman lad mimed  Bohaefer, who created a furore lu  ���cientifdc circle* some time ago. There  wu nothing unusual lu his appearance, and yet he hud a very strange  pa��T of eye*. The usual order of  things waa rovereod; In the day he  waa practically blind, while In th*  oVarkneae of then igbt the kcenneas  of hde eight was astonishing. When  night came on, young Srhaefer could  see with an ncutoness which many  ordinary people would have given  much to possess even In daytime.  THK ITALIAN AT HOME  Sober,  Frugal ami   iVIIhnl, Cheerful,  the Italiuu In Ills Nutl.e Haunts  Exists  riciiMiruhli.  The Italian peusaut, poor und overtaxed, Is of necessity economical, but  he   le   by   temperuiiieni    sober   and  frugal In his mode of life.    Macaroni  and  olive oil seem  to  be  his staple  articles of diet.    Ileans with oil and  salt are held by the peasantry to be  u   dish   fit   for   the   gods.    Chestnut  trees flourish on  the Apennines, und  the nuts form a nutritive rood -- even  being ground Into flour und made into  a   kind   of  bread   ���   for   the   poorer  peasants of the rotintry. The dwellers  In the Italian towns are also, for the  most part, frugal and abstemious In  their   habits;    they   eat   and    drink  sparingly and are pood cooks.    They  are,   too,  addicted   to  such   harmless  pleasures as cafe or theatre visiting.  There on Sunday or Thursday night*  (the  latter  the  weekly  half-holiday)  the good  burgher nnd  his  wife may  be  seen   clod  In   their  Bundiiy   best.  They spend little, but seem lo enjoy  life.     The   Italian   woman   Is   clever  with   her   needle,  and   does   wonders  In the way of dress.

Missionary Banquet  Continued from page I  .i hindrance rather than a help, a:  ihe Kelowna church had made  such remarkable strides since his  previous visit. The Christian man  should be a business man; the  time in which we live demanded  that. Much talk there was afloat  about real estate being a good (investment, but he knew a far better  one, viz., in the[work of the Church,  which spicad good around which  was lasting, nnd which not only  they but their children would reap  the benefit of. The idea of the  banquet was not to beg money,  but to get folks to place capital in  n safe investment, and one which  would yield large profits. What  were they as a body prepared to  invest ? Opposition to Christian  doctrine was open and strong  these days, but it waa a healthy  sign, and the religion of the friends  was to be lived, not preached.  Dr. W. H. Gaddcs proposing  " Our Present Duty to Missions,"  believed in "Charity beginning al  home "���but not stopping there.  They should be prepared to pay  for the benefits they were constantly  in receipt of.  Seconding which, Mr. G. F.  Thompson said the command to  " Go into all the world and preach  the Gospel " was still as forceful  aa ever it had been, but how were  they carrying it out ) Great and  grand examples had been set them  but it rested with each individual  lo do his and her share.  The toasts were interspersed  wilh selections of vocal music by  Mrs. Dr. Huycke, Mrs. P. Brook,  Mrs. L. Dilworth and the brothers  Fuller, all of which were well  received, Miss Winnie Jones accompanying on the organ.  Subscription lists having been  passed round, it was announced  I hat the lecord sum of $1,054 had  been given and promised, and  (his, coupled with $151 subscribed  by the Sunday-school, and $75  by the Epworth League, shows  how heartily the members both  junior and senior, responded lo  the untold needs of this vast work.  Last year Kelowna church gave  more per member to missions than  any ether Methodist church in the  province, and the sum subscribed  then was $1,060, as compared  with $610 the previous vear : so  that in three years subscriptions  have more than doubled.  At the Opera House  Mr. C. James Bancroft, one of  the cleverest of the younger English school of high class comedians  who is presenting " The Private  Secretary" is a Cambridge loca  centre man, who originally intended to go to Sandhurst with a view  of taking up military life. Aband  oning this idea, he came to America and for more than a year h  was a cowboy in Nebraska. Returning to England he went on the  stage where for many years he has  been the idol of the theatregoing  public. Mr. Bancroft brings his  wonderful comedy to the Kelowna  Opera House on Tuesday, February 13th.  "An Indian's Gratitude," ah epic  of the Great West at Dreamlandon  Friday and Saturday.

As all brain action Is dependent  upon the blood ��� that is the heart  action ��� we frequently look for an  explantlon of unhealthy mental conditions In the state of the blood. Unusually low blood pressure Is generally associated with the mental states  characterising brain-fag, neurasthenia, etc.; anaemia or poorness of the  blood quality will produce ulso mental  Incapacity and dulness���a man whoBe  blood Is not healthy cannot be alert  and decisive. Bad food combinations  tsuch as cheese and tea together.) and  Ignorant eating Hre responsible for  much more than Indigestion, Berlous  as that Is lu itself. It Is by uch  mistakes that the blood Is rendered  less valuable to all the organs of the  body, Including, of course, the brain.  The powers of memory are directly  influenced by biliousness and un over-  acid condition of the blood. Again  vigorous brain action depends largely  upon the regulur and Bpeedy elimination of the waste products of the  body; If these do not get out by way  of the bowels nnd kidneys they are  taken Into the blood, und this, fouled  as It Is, Is yet sent by the wonderful  pumping mechanism of the heart to  the remotest corner of body and  brain. Simple food, plenty of water  to drink between meals, fresh air by  night and day, regulur exercise and  deep breathing will keep the blood at  its best, and that in its turn will do  good work for the brain.  The Latest In Uinis  During the recent extended manoeuvres of the German army there  w*r* many night attacks, In which  use wa* made of the newly-Introduced  illuminating pistols. According to  the new regulations, these are to be  employed wherever the configuration  of the land makes their use preferable  to that of the ordinary searchlight.  The machinery necessary for the UBe  of the latter device Is very inconvenient, and especially In rolling and  otherwise difficult country, where the  main manoeuvres take place, It cannot be used to advantage. The Illuminating pistols have not this disadvantage, aB they are easily transported. Further, the seurchllght is use-  lesB In valleys and deep-lying plalnB,  as their rays ahoot over these and  leave them apparently in still deeper  shadow. For this reason, such valleys  serve as excellent covers at night  against the searchlights. The illuminating pistols have done away with  this advantage of shelter, as the cartridges which they throw light up the  deepest and darkest gulleye. There  are two different sorts of cartridges,  producing respectively white and red  light. The white ones serve exclusively for Illuminating the country, the  red ones for signalling purposes between widely Beparated commands or  divisions, even where the distance between them is several miles. The  Illuminating cartridges develop a light  that makes everything within U5tl feet  visible, and lasts eight to ten seconds.  Edison's First1 Invention  The story of Mr. Edison's first Invention will bear rotelllng. One day,  when he was a small hoy of five, his  parenta missed him, and after a long  search his elder sister discovered him  in the fowl-house, where he said lie  Intended to remain three weeks. His  clothes were in a terrible condition,  being smothered with crushed eggs.  "What were you doing that for, Tom?"  asked his sister in alarm. "Well, I  thought If the hens could hatch egg!  by sitting on them I could." was the  reply of the youthful genius.  Mr. Edison has often been credited  with Inventing things which even for  him would have been remarkable.  Some time ago, an American paper  stated that he had Invented a wonderful shirt which would Inst a man  for twelve monthB without requiring  to be waBhed. This shirt, It was  stated, was made of MB layers of  material, the composition of which no  one knew but the inventor, and all the  wearer had to do to restore It to Its  original spotlessuess was to tear off  one of the luyers, when he would have  practically a new shirt. This announcement was reprinted in various  other papers, wl(h the result that Mr.  Edison received no end of orders for  the mystety shirt.  New White Metal Alloy.  Metallurgical Investigation has resulted In the perfection of a new white  metal alloy. 'Atherlum' It Ib called,  and It Is stated to be lighter than  aluminium. The metal is said to be  superior to the pure metal, to make  good, sound castings, und to work  well In rolling and turning. It can  also be soldered, welded, and forged;  It does not tarnish, and Is impervious  to corrosion and the action of sea-  water. It should prove an excellent  substitute for Qerman silver under  lliose conditions, and be effective for  a great variety of purposes for which  aluminium would bu used were it  stronger, and UghtnesB combined with  strength Ib the superlative consideration. Owing to Its electrical conductivity, the new alloy should be extremely useful In a wide range of applications In this phase of Industry.  To Locate Underground Water.  A French Inventor has contrived an  application of the microphone to the  discovery of underground water. One  end of a tube 1* Inserted in the ground  the upper end being attached to the  microphone. The sounds ot flowing or  dropping water are conveyed to the  ear from great depths. In the Marne  valley two springs were discovered  with thia apparatus at a depth of  about 50 feet below the surface of  the ground. It is believed that the  apparatus win be of great service In  mining operations both for indicating  the location of concealed springs and  tor communicating with Imprisoned  miner*.         ...    _..__  FOR SALE  On Lawson Avenue  100 feet of frontage by 150.
