 ���������e���������������  4 ^ I -&*  , Vf.  'TtiK  VOL. VI.   NO. 23  City Council Holds  Short Session  KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, APRIL 30. 1914  PUBLICITY. GRANT WILL NOT EXCEED $500  Friday's meeting at Iho city council  was brief, there being little business to  transaot. Acting Mayor Sutherland  presided and Alderman Adams, Duggan  Kattenbury and Taylor were present.  A letter waB read from the Vniou ol  Canadian Municipalities stating that  attention to the new railway act now  before parliament with u view to procuring all possible advantages whoro  the bill touches municipal interests.  * , Advice waB received from the Ritchie  Contracting and Supply Co., that the  now sprinkler on order would -each  Kelowna in a few days.  Several communications were also  read respecting the city's debentures  issues.  Alderman Adams stated that tho  Board of Trade was anxious to know  what amount of money the city would  grant to them this year for publicity  purpose*.  Alderman Sutherland said the I'nance  committee had prepared a rough draft  of the estimates for the year, but they  were not yet in shape to present it lo  the counoil. Included was a s'jin of  $500 for the Board of Trade, and it  waa for the council to decide whether  thia should be the amount or not.  In dismissing the matter it was the  general opinion that the council could  not go beyond this sum without increasing the tax rate, and it was finally decided that the clerk should notify the Board pf Trade that not more  than $600 would be available, and that  it might be necessary to curtail oven  thin, amounts when the estimates were  compacted.  Alderman Taylor said that something must be done to prevent drivers  of automobiles from spocil.n..' -long  tha streets. He was oi opinion that  the oounoil should take effective steps  to enforo* the provincial regulation*  before an accident occurred. Th* clerk  w��s **hed to instruct Chief Sutherland  to striotly ent..-oe the provincial speed  regulation and make no exception*  where they wen broken.  The question of the delay in the  construction of sidewalk* asked for  under the Looal Improvement Actvas  brought up, and the city olerk sated  that the incompleteness of several of  the petition* was the cause of the delay, some not having sufficient signature* attached. It was decided, to notify those interested that unless the  petition* were completed by the following Friday they would not be entertained this year.  $1.50 Per Annum.  THIS    SUMMER   WILL SEE MANY  IMPROVEMENTS IN 0   P. It.  LAKE SERVICE  The gratifying news has been secoiv  ed by the Kelowna Hoard ol Trado  from Supt. McKay of tho C.P.R., that  the Sunday train service from Sicn-  rnous and steamer service on the Ok-in-  agan Lake will be restored, commencing May 31st next.   '  Ever since it was announced last  January thnt this servico was to bo  discontinued���at any rate temporarily  ���the Kelowna Board of Trade have  loft .no stone unturned' to have the service restored. Several conferences have  taken place between the Board and  Supt. McKay with the above mentioned most satisfactory result. Shippers,  merchants, and tho public generally ol  the Okanagan thoroughly appreciate  tho keen interest Supt. MoKay has  taken in tho development ol the restrict since his appointment to his responsible post two years ago, and bis  efforts in having tho Sunday service  restored tends to materially increase  those cordial relations which have always existed between the Okanagan  people and the C.P.R.  Synchronous with the resumption of  this service tho new passenger stea'iin  "Sicamous" which has boen built nt  Oknnagan Landing will be ready for  launching. This steamer will jjrei I ly  facilitate travel to Kelowna and .iher  lake points. The now freight tug  "Naraniala" has already been munched and will soon be available for hauling the oar barges. A determined  move is being made lo make Kolowna a popular tourist resort. Tho distriot lends itself admirably lor this  purpose and the Kelowna Board ol  Trade are at present urging tho C.P.R.  to inaugurate excursions from prairie  nnd other points   0 '  HUEKTA ACCEPTS OFFERS OF  MEDIATION  High Scktol Leading ths League  Th* baseball game* ia the sohool*  league on Saturday laat were of the  one-sided nature, so far as the game  ia the oity was concerned, when the  High Sohool aggregation trounced the  I'ublio Sohool by 26 run* to 4.  The gam* was alow most oi the way  the players appearing to have tost  the snap and ginger of the former exhibitions. Sutherland was in the box  for the latter and had an "off day"  as the score will testify. While the entire fault of the large score does aot  speak well for Sutherland, ho was not  wholly to blame for hi* support was  of the "ragged" variety and many  times the loose fielding of the Publio  Sohool team allowed the opposition to  ���core whan in reality easy put outs  should have resulted.  Kinoaid worked on the mound for  the High sohool and it is chiefly due  to his splendid pitohing that the High  Sohool are at present loading the  league. He had splendid control and  through constant practice luis mastered a couple of splendid curve balls.  Beside* this his team mate* gave him  gilt edged support and this is the  secret of keeping the score down  The Ellison-Rutland fixture at Rut:  lant proved to be another easy win  for the Ellison team. The winning  olub appeared on the field in their new  uniforms and played pretty snappy ball  winning from the Rutland team by 9i.  to 8.  A meeting of the Kelowna Amateur  Swimming Association will be held in  the offioe of the Kelowna Implement  ' Co., on Monday evening, May 4th at  8 o'olook. Tho arranfrmpn} rj for the  coming season will be discussed at  thi* meeting and all members and  other* interested ar* asked to attend.

ANXIOUS TO FIGHT MEXICO  Scene in tho New .York naval recruiting office, after it became imminent  that military operations against General Iluerta. tho Mexican dictator,  would be instituted. Before the station had been open nn hour more than  forty applicants had appealed and signified their willingness to enlist. Successful candidates are lieing assigned for training ns last as possible. The  recruiting ol'ioials said that (hero was slight chance of tho examinations being made easier in order to get moro successful applicants, because at the  present time, there are sufficient applicants who can pass the examinations  to keep the naval (oroo up lo fighting strength.  Club Looks Good  To the Fans  The bast-! all     pvoHpeilts in  Kelowna  were never brighter than thoy are today.,    tiie    now material    arrived on  Monday und on Tuesday ofti rnoon had  their first work out at the Ibeal field.  Mr. K. Kelly, who will act as mana-1  ger of the olub this season in a catcher of note, bolng last year ti member  of Seattle and Victoria, in tho Northwestern League and cornea to us well  recommended  by  tha coast clubs.    He  is more than a backstop, he Is tt man  who has studied the ability of players  as a business and    at a glance    can  Bee the weaknesses of the playura   und  when he has found these weaknesses he  is   capable of    giving    advice    to the  player that will in most cases     tako  away  iho weakness and in place     of  the defect will be strength.  The other three who came with Manager Kelly are Powless, an outfielder  of splendid ability, who has l>een with I  Seattle until recently. Kelly, ,. broth-'  er of the manager, also an outfielder'  and Pierce an inlielder who looks like'  a find.  The players are turning out to practice both mom'ng and afternoon for  a time Lo got into condition, and the  course of lectures and train'ng that  they aie put through should result in  much good. The players are placed in  first one position and then (mother,  and watched carefully that they may  be finally placed in a posilion where  they will be able to do justice to them  selves and bo of the greatest benefit  to the olub.  Among tho local players- wh�� are  turning out to practice nre Arthur nnd  Ray Patten, Arthur and Fred Henning  and Purdy. Mr. Kelly says if the  boys will hit, he will bo satisfied as  they acquit themselves woll on the  field.  Reports from other cities composing  the league circuit are of the brightest  and eaoh city is confident thut their  club will bo within sight of the Coveted   goal at the    close of the season-  Local Dramatic Society Will  Present "Patience"  Preparations aro now almost completed for the Dramatic Society production of "Patience", one at tho most  popular and tuneful of Gilbert and  Sullivan's operas. An excellent east  has been arranged to fill the leading  coles and the chorus is exceptionally  fine.  The orchestra under (ho able leadership of Druiy PryOe now have their  parts in good shaoc and will add the  necessary snap nnd singer to tho performance. Than Mr. Edgar McKie,  there isn't a better scenic artist in  America aud his work for "Pathmoe"  is up to the usual liiirh standard of  excellence. Anticipation runs high in  amusement circles in the city, and tho  public will not bo disappointed in the  performance of "Patience" next Friday  and Saturduy, May 8th and IHh, the  dales set for this production. To give  every ono an opportunity to see this  popular opera, it will be repeated���  positively for tho last time���on Tuesday May 12th.  The plan and seal sale for the first  two performances is now on at Crawford's store.  The Bociety has decider] to take the  show to Vernon on Thursday, May 14  ��nd the "Aberdeen" has been chartered for this trip. Anyone wishing to  make this special trip with tho members of the society can do so for tho  modest sum of $2.15 return fore.  Pan-American diplomacy mado its-  first attempt to solve tho Mexican crisis by peaceful n'gotiutions on Saturday last, with the result that the  tension of the situation has been considerably relieved, and hopes aro beginning to be ent i tained that the unfortunate affair will pass over without  further bloodshed.  The United States Government aooepted from Argentine, Chile and Brazil a formal offer to act as intermediaries in the present situution, but reservedly pointed out that nn act ol  aggression by the military forces or  hostile demonstrations toward Americans might upset prospects of immediate peace. The Brazilian, Argentine  and Chilean envoys transmitted the  United States acceptance of their proposal to ihe Spanish ambassador who  immediately sent il by cable to the  Spanish legation nt Mexico City for  presentation to General Iluerta.  General Carranta, head of the Constitutionalists, was informed of it  through his representatives.  Coincident with the acceptance of thb  offer of mediation, tlio administration  officials announced that there would  be no cessation of preparations by  the army and navy for future emergencies, and no order would be issued  lo the naval forces now at Vera Cruz  on the ships nt sra chancing original  plans, No funh'r ster-s, however, to  obtain reparation for the indignities  which gave rise to the present situation would be attempted while the effort is being made to bring about a  settlement through diplomaoy.  Although the oltsr made by the three  South American countries did not reveal their plans it was learned that  they contemplated tt broad settlement  of the Mexican problem through the  elimination of flnerta, uron which the  United Stntes has insisted from the  beginn'ng. Notification of the offer of  mediation was sent, not only to the  diplomatic representatives of Argentine, Chile and Brazil in Mexico City,  but to General Carranza and the Constitutionalists in Northern Mexico.  Iluerta Accepts Offer of Mediation  The President and Secretary Bryan  wero assured through two diplomats  that General Huerta was ready to ac  cept the tender of good offices and was  now drafting n formal acceptance.  Pressure from Germany, Great Britain and France, nd-. ising Huerta to  adopt the first step towards mediation  and approving the attitude of the l.at-  in-American countries towards the  settlement of the controversy by Pan-  American diplomacy, emphasized the  world-wide -flumes* whioh are working to bring about peace.

I  The board of governors of the t'ni  versity of British Columbia announce  tho appointment of Douglas Mcintosh  B.A.,B.Sc, (Dalhoiisiol M. A. (Cornell)  D. Sc. (MoGilly, as associate professor  of chemistry and acting head of the  department.  Dr. Mcintosh was born in New Glasgow, N.S., March 0, 1875; graduated  ns B.A., from Dalhoiisie, 1806, with  honors in chemistry and physios. He  was awarded the 1851 British Exhibition scholarship, whioh he held from  I8!H)-'!I9 during whioh time he studied  chemistry, physics and mathematics in  Cornell University and rooeived his M.  A��� from that institution.  Some lengthy and highly npprecia  tive notices have been appearing ii  the coast papers this week touching  Ihe death at an advanced age of Catherine Balfour, the beloved wife of Senator Macdonald, one of the earliest  pioneers of British Columbia. Victoria  was but a fur trading post when in  1852 Mrs. Macdonald arrived there.  Her father waB Captain James Murray Heid, of London, who brought his  family to the far-away post in the sail  ing vessol "Vanoouver," of which he  was Captain. She was married a few  years later to W. .1. Macdonald, then  an officer in the service of the Hudson's Bay company, and now the venerable Senator Macdonald, who survives his wife after a long and happy  union. Mrs. Macdonald is also survived by three sons and three daughters. Mr. Neil Gregory, of Kelowna,  it might be mentioned, is a nopbiw  of the deceased.  Notwithstanding the inclemency of  the weather, a number of enthusiastic  golfers attended the meeting last Thurs  day called to consider the formation ol  a golf olub at Bankhead. Mr. L. E.  Taylor conducted the party over the  proposed links, whioh had bean previously laid out by an experienced professional. The course is an excellent  ono and Kelowna is indeed fortunate  in having sixty acre* of land ao near  the city available for the purpose.  Beautifully situated,   and undulating  throughout, with an excellent     irrigation system, and several natural bunkers, the ground is admirably adapted  for golf.     The course has great possibilities e.id it is hoped that tbo scheme  will meet with the success it deserves.  After a tour of inspection, the party  adjourned to the house to discus* tb.  business side of the question.     Owing  to the fact that the purchase of   b.nd  suitable for a golf course within   reasonable distance of the city had   been  found to be out of the question, it was  decided  that the only feasible soheme  was to run the club on a proprietm-y  basis.   In this was members will have  no   further   liability than an   annual  subscription.    Mr. Taylor explained to  the    meeting that    the Bankhead Orchard Coy., would be prepared to lay  out and maintain the course, provid*  a club house, and undertake all financial  responsibilities,    on receiving     a  guarantee of not lee* than 50 members.  A provisional committee was     then  elected,   composed   of   th*   following:  Messrs. G. R. Binger,   W. E. W. Hrt-  ehcll,  H. Gf Pangman, W. B. Tool**/  and H. G. M. Wilson, the latter alio  to act as    secretary, for th* purpos*  of enrolling member* and inaugurating  the club.    Mr. Taylor intimated that  the course could be ready by the   beginning of August, and we uneVrrtend  a start has already been mad*,   ltd*  will allow five month* play this year.  The subscription for this year    was  fixed as follow*:��� Gentlemen 910, Ladies $5.  For the benefit of thos* who do not  already own dub* Mr. Taylor Is arranging for a consignment to be ���hipped from St. Andrews.  It would greatly facilitate tke work  of the committee if intending members  would send in their names to the secretary as early as possible.  It need hardly b* mentioned how  great an asset a golf course will  prove to the oity, not only from the  point of view of recreation but also  as a means of attracting visitors who  might otherwise go elsewhere.  NEW HOWLING AM.EY OPENED  TODAY  The now bowling alloyi nn Water  street opened its doors to tho publio  to'lay. Tho alley management has  offered prizes for the ojiening day for  the best and the worst sooros made  and thero Is no doubt that both prizes  will be keenly contested for.  Although there arc many famous apple orchards in Great Britain, apple  growing as a business is not very wide  ly followed. It is possible to get a  yield of Irom 1250 to 1500 per acre  where special bionsy making sorts suited to the soil are grown in England  Despite this fact, the country often  imports 100,000,000 bushels in a single  season. At the present time the supply  for the season is exhausted and foreign growers are getting as much a*  $3.25 per bushel for apples lhey are  ���ending into Great Britain.  S^oi Arm WiUk Cut.

"The curtailing of credit  by wholesale houses, and loss through  uncollectable aocounts have forced  them to this decision, they buy to advantage and sell on a cheaper basis."  O    ���  LACROSSE CLUB TO HOLD DANCE  TOMORROW NIGHT  The first annual ball of the Kelowna  Lacrosse Club will be held tomorrow  evening in the Morrison Hall.

While acknowledging; that on broad  ground tho action of the American  tiovernment toward Mexico is justified  the "Nation" {London. I nj.) Bevev-ly  criticizes 1'reBident Wilson for what it  terms his giving ns a pretext (or such  action, tho refusal by President Utter-  to to apologize, in act and form, as  prescribed, lor the brief detention of  American bluejuckcts in Tnmpico.  "By singling out this incident,"  says the "Nation", "as an excuse  for an action which amounts to, war,  President Wilson has done more to  tower Ihe standard of international  mornlity than nil his fine utterances  in the past have done to raise it.  A statesman who interferes to restore order mny argil* that at some  cost in lives and treasure he is put-  ting nn end to intolerable violent  nnd cruelty, but the statesman who  sacrifices lives because Borne c< rc-  munial detail is Inokln [ in the ritual  ol nn apology, is behaving with levity unworthy ol n civilized -111 r.  This deliberate nnd needless raising  ol honor is a lupso into barbaric  morals wnich would be more natural  in some Prussian colonel in an Alsatian garrison than in a humanitarian  president of a civilized republic."  THE ROAD TO HELL  The seriousness of the Mexican war  docs not seem to have dawned on the  great mass of the people. That fatal  habit of assuming that the Mexican  has the same point of view on tho  subject ol the military power of the  L'nitod States as the American himself is quite likely to receive a very  unpleasant shock during tha next few  months. No ono doubts that in the  end the United States can crush Mexico, but there are very grave double  as to when that end will be. To the  average person Mexico seems a little  country turned away under the great  and overwhelming mass of the United  States, But for purposes of defence  and offence Mexico ia exceedingly well  situated. Its dolonce is simple, be-  causo tho lines are all interior and  narrow down towards Mexico City.  There are thousands of square mile*  of rocky mountainous oountry nn  either side oi the railways and any  attacking force must stick to the  railways.  For offensive purposes, it must be  remembered that there are no less  than 1-100 miles of border between  the United States and Mexico. On  the Mexican side of the border there  is nothing but devastation, but on tha  American side there are enormous  areas of more or less settled and rich  country which offers a sphero of operations whieh the late rebels will be  almost certain to nil*. The Texas  Rangers, and the state militia of  New Howco, Arizona and California,  will probably have their work nut  out guarding this border from raiding bands bent on plunder.  The simplest way ol getting money  (o pay troop* i* to allow them to  take it where they can find it. That  has been the Villa and Carranra method and it is not likely that tt will  change. To the Mexican mind, especially ths Mexican rebel mind, these  border stales offer plunder galore,  with not more risk than usual. The  Mexicans move (ait, ar* well mounted, and thank* to the United State*  well armed. They,may not b* able to  shoot very straight at long range  but they have bad lot* ol praotice  lately and according to report* published ail over the United States,  while they wen operating against the  Federal* wer* splendid lighters, with  lot* ol dash and pluck. Band* of 380  or800 at a time can cross th* -Iron  tier and rendezvous at some place*  miles in th* Interior.     Wh*n*v*r   air  tacked they can split up and once  more unite.

Any man who we* in the South  African war and remember* De Wet  can realize what such warfare will  mean and De Wet was a gentleman  and a patriot, not a brigand with  murder and rape a* hi* pastime in  life.  The terrible port of what may well  bo a phase of the Mexican war is that  the United States itself armed and  gave strength to thi* force. If it was  a formidable force upon which the  United Slates trusted for tho elimination of a well entrenched and famous  fighter is it not more formidable now  with a irreat and rich country open to  its raidB? A feint attack at one  point nnd a real raid at another and  1400 miles of open frontier to guard  will keep a defence lorco on the alert.  If ever retribution for a mistaken po-  icv followed hard on the heels ol the  mistake it seemB as if it were about  to do so now. Guarding the border  Irom such raids will probably bo the  first enre of the United States to  day. If patrols of 50 men to every  mile are placed there is work alone  for 70.000 men. That is' where the volunteers will be wanted, while the regulars take care of the advance.  Truly it is said that the road to  hell is paved with good intentions.���  Province.  RURAL EDUCATION  The editors of the Saturday Evening  Poat, which probably is the most  widely read single publication in the  world, have this to say of rural school  consolidation:  "It ought to be pretty well understood by this time that the one-room  rural district schools, beloved by our  grandfathers is mostly a scnndaloua  institution. Tho typical teacher Is a  girl just out ol normal, much under  paid, sometimes overworked and sometimes with only half a dasen pupil's  ol assorted ages.  "A Vermont report covering thirty-  two such Bchools shows that in three  years there were one hundred aud  seventeen different teachers, of whom  ���on an average���more than halt served less than two terms.  "A great majority of these school*  are poorly built and hardly' equipped at all, just a bare little room  wilh a desk, a rostrum, n blackboard  and a poisonous east iron stove. That  efficient instruction can be had under  such conditions is out of the question.  "And there is less nnd less excuse  lor the typical one-room, ungraded  rural district school. Our grandfathers could have that or nothing, In  thoir day the nearest town was ten  miles or more nwuy anil tho road all  but impassible hall the year.  "Now all over the middle west at-  least, there arc few rural districts  tkat are not within easy haul ol a  village graded school; still (ewer that  might not have a lairly equipped graded Bchool within easy haul by consolidating the districts. Already in somo  localities a wagon to bring in the  country children is as much a part ol  the educational equipment as the traditional blackboard insolf.  "Like some other institutions,  the little red school house subsists  mainly on prejudice and mere, in-irtia.  If educating children is worth all this  effort, to give them tolerably efficient  teaching is worth just a little more  effort."  TENNIS COURTS READY.

Notioe  has already been given ol morning sittings and when the House starts fitting morning, noon and night et tremendous masa of business oan be rapidly cleaned up. The warmer weather  also is conducive to despatch ol business and shorter speeches. The more  optimistic say the House will wind up  by May 24, while at the outside it  should finish by the first or neeond  week in June. 01 course, much depends upon how controversial the Ito  distribution Bill and the agreement  with the Canadian Northern Railway  may prove to be, but the present outlook is that neither, ot these questions  will turn out to be ol the character  that would cause continued and contentious debate.  The redistribution committee ba*  been working quietly and both partioe  are showing a spirit ol give and take  that augurs well for the ultimate settlement.  A* far as the west is concerned, the  parti?, have already practically agreed  on Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Urit-  ish Columbia. Alberta i* still in doubt,  but the two Alberta member* ol the  redistribution committee are working  hard with a view to settling upon a  redistribution satisfactory to liberals  and Conservatives alike. In Manitoba,  there is no dispute. The Liberals admit that the redistribution is lair.  In British Columbia, it is understood  that the Liberals are objecting to but  one scat, that of Nanaimo, though it*  boundaries havo not been disturbed  from last redistribution. The Liberal*  ask, however, that part of Cotnox  should be added to Nanaimo and will  probably make a motion to this effect  in the House. In Saskatchewan also  the Liberals are understood to have  but one real objection (o the changes  that have been proposed. They will  likely move an amendment to suggest  a change in the new Maple Creek constituency which includes Ihe ranching  country of southwestern I Sas'tatchewan  They claim that the constituency as  now proposed is too unwieldy and will  ask that part ol it bo aided to either  the new Swift Current seal or Moose  ���law seat. So far in Alberta only  two seat* have been agreed upon but  aa intimated above, a satisfactory settlement is expected shortly. An interim report by the redistribution committee will be brought down shortly.  HOME RULE CRISIS IN ULSTER  The political pot in Ulster  kikely to. come to a boil over th* excitement ol some gun-running exploit*  which havo been successfully pulled  off during the past week, and th* British cabinet is finding itself fee* to face  with a serious situation  A consignment of about forty thousand rifles and half a million rounds of  ammunition from flermany is said to  have been landed by a mysterious vier-  nian steamer at isolated points on the  coast ol Ulster and distributed by  means ol two hundred automobile* to  various headquarters oi the Ulster  "Volunteers". Those Ulstermen who  declare themselves determined to offer armed resistance to the introduction of Home Rule mobilised and ejuar  ded the landing places and road* until the distribution of arms was completed. The police were powerless to  interfere and all means of communication wero temporarily interrupted by  the Ulster volunteers during the distribution.  The Irish Nationalist volunteer*, a  body siaiilnr in organization to tha  Ulster Unionist volunteers, made matter* even with their political opponents by successfully landing a large  consignment ol arms, The weapons,  whioh aro said,to have been brought  from America, were taken ashore at a  remote spot on the const of County  Donegal, in the far west of Ulster. Tbe  ���ize of the consignment is unknown,  but it is bolievod to hnve been considerable, although not equalling th*  40,000 rifles and 500.000 round* ol  ammunition th* Unionists received.

Tbe  fetters of mediaevalism that one* held  it so firmly are being loosened, the  quaintnest of the old regime that had  so strong a fascination 'or the visitor  and charmed and held the resident in  spite of the injustice, cruelty and suspicion to which ho was subjected hat  passed. The ancieot customs are dying out; the old usage* an thing* ol  the past.  The parish dogs are gone and the  streets are being cleaned, the narrow  thoroughfare* ar* in many cases being  widened, the hamals are giving way to  Ihe express carriers and the sedan  chairs and the old horse trams are replaced by electric cars. Modernity  with all its gift* is creeping in, and  however much the sentimental and ar*  tislic may depgire the passing of the  pietures(|ue, Constantinople will s oon  lose its Asiatic character and become  as European aB any other city of the  continent.  Its pomp and gorgepusness will be  missed most of all. Those who re  member the selamlik of five yean ago  will find this great pageant burled,  almost forgotten. Mehmed V, goes  to tho mosque on Fridays, as Sultans  have done for centuries, but he drives  in a carriage that is scarcely noticed  even by his own subjects as it threads  its way through tho streets. Contrast  this simple spectacle with the marching of troops, the clearinr of the thoroughfares by outriders and heralds end  the advance of Abdul Hamid in fear  and trembling, guarded by thousands  of soldiers���contrast these two selam-  liks and vou can have an idea of the  change that a few years h��ve brought  lo the city by the Bosphorous.  It was a great task to widen the  streets in accordance with the demands  of increasing traffic, and drastic measures were employed by the committee  that had the work in charge. In  Stamboul conditions were .worse, perhaps, 'than in any other part of Constantinople. The ramshackle, devious  streets with now and then a grand  mosque, a dingy oaravanserai, a  cTiimblin- palace or a desolate garden, Covered the grandeur and luxury  of a nasi n^n.   Ars'n end era In every  district had been swept by fire and Ihe  house* that were put up over the ruin*  grew more and more miserable after  each conflagration. The Turk* (Imply  smoothed the ground and rebuilt. He-  neath might be the halls ola mansion  of a grand age, disclosed now end then  by the subsidence pi the earth. It  never bothered the man on the surface, but the caverns that were thus  formed became the refuge of dervishes, homeless people and malefactors. |  When these squatters were disturbed  they roae in rebellion and tor blocks  workmen had io fight their way. Hut'  Djemii l'asha, the mayor, persevered.  He demolished old eyesores, he built  new streets and laid out attractive pub  lie parks. To create the largest and  most beautiful of these breathing  places for the people he transformed  the gardens of the famous Topkapou  Palace at Seraglio Point into a park  with fountains and promenades.  It wns easier to make changes in  Pern, the Kino ��n tuarier, and here  will be noted the greatest improvement. The new Taxim boulevard has  been made into a wide, tree lined avenue; some of the side streets have  been paved and widonod and many ot  the projecting structures torn down  and replaced by fine stona buildings.  Several modern offioe buildings have  been erected in Galata, once infested  with thugs, who preyed' upon sailjrs  and shippers, the narrow dark  havo been widened enough to let  the sunlight.  To connect Hulata wilh Stamboul a  new bridge has been built. This iB  tbe most important work'the miui  cipality has completed. In its con  struction about on '-fifth of the loan ol  {6,000,000 whioh the oity raised for  public improvement was used. It is  well paved and lighted with electricity. While it may lack some of tho  picturesque character of tho old  bridge, where "the people of 11I Europe and Asia passed in an unending  procession," it has more stability and  is better adapted to the passage of  steamers to and from the fioldrn Horn  Think of a department of public ly  giene and sanitation and actually  striving hard to keep the streets ol  Constantinople clean. Yet that is me  of the new developments. The houic refuse, which wns formerly thrown into  the streets to the packs of Pariah dogs  is now collected hy city scavengers.  The dogs that once wore such an important part of old Stamboul would  now seem ns much out of place in  Constantinople ns in any other European city.  It oould    hardly be truthfully mid tint* thit form ol traction wfH   *up-  that the streets ar* kept dean. Still plant the primitive hone oan hi ate-  there it a gnat Improvement over tbe  condition* that existed, and th* work  will be (till better done when aore  automatic sprinklers and revolving  broom* are put into aervioe. Street  peddler* and shopkeeper* mutt keep  foodstuff* under cover, and oil, milk  and other liquids are tested to prevent  adulteration*. Another sanitary measure toon to be carried out 1* the  draining of the whole oity into the  swift ourrent of the Bosphorut instead  of permitting part of it to flow into  the sluggish waters of tbe Golden  Horn.  One of the great improvements that  came in with the constitutional era  is the policing of the city. The tya-  tem of rough and ready watchmen is  retained, and in addition there Is a  welt organised and efficient polioe force  Rut the fire department remain* the  same primitive institution, and in a  city where wooden houses predominate  and fires are so frequent and destructive an efficient fire department is  one of the most imperative needs.  Visitors still find more or less amuse  ment in the grotesque formalities attending every fire alarm. First comes  a company ol scantily clad men running barefooted through the street*  carrying an antiquated hand pump,  then in processional array the lire brigade proper, followed by a bugler  sounding a weird Call, the engine  drawn by an old broken down horse,  a magnificent official on horseback,  and trailing on beh'nd, running as  fast as their legs will carry ll'em, a  brigade of helpers.  Constantinople has not realized the  full possibilities of electricity. Smaller  anci-nl cities of the near east have  taken more advantage ot that agency  for light nr, traffic and other purposes  than has the capital. One reason tor  this tardiness is the fact that Abdul  Hamid, with nn eye to the dangers of  electricity and the possible peril* to  his personal safety, would never consent to its adoption in Constantinople.  There are, however, evidence* of an  awakening interest in this power as  a meant of developing the city's  sources.    A plant will soon be able to  furnish a powerful electric service.    It  is being built at Sili'dar on the Boa-  phoru*,  Cars on the indercround cable road  tions ol Galata and rHambont, ami  that eventually the line will be extended to tin village* on the European  shore of the Botphoru*.

The members  met at,the lodge room   at half past  ten,    and    headed by the    city band  marched to the ohurch.     The Marshal  of the day was Bro. ff. B. M. Caldor,  and    other    officials included A.  Edwards, N.G., H. Brown V.G.,     t. V,  Itogers, P.O., D. B. Smith, secretary,  W. Harvey, treasurer and J. H. Glass,  D.D.O.V.    Tn addition to the     looal  members some thirty  motored    down  I from Vernon, and there was also     a  I strong    contingent    of Rebeccas, who  had the front pews reserved for them.  Nothing had been    left undone     to  make    tbe    service attractive.    There  were two anthems.  "Praise the Lord  0 Jerusalem," in which the solo part  was taken by Mrs.  J, N. Thompson,  and "Turn Thy Pace" tho soloist    in  his instance being Miss E. P. Duthie,  both anthems being given an excellent  rendering by the choir.     Mr.     J.   N.  Thompson gave a    fine rendering    of  "The    Sailor's   Grave,"    as a cornet  solo, and Mr. Drury    Pryce's     violin  solo "Andante" (Mendelssohn) was   interpreted    in his    usual    sympathetic  manner.     The hymns were "i.ove Di*  vine,   all    loves    excelling" ''Onward  Christian Soldiers" and "Blest be the  tie that Binds." A collection was tele  n up on behalf of the Kclowna Bene-  volent Society.  The preachers for the occasion were  Itevs. A. Dunn and I). J. Welsh, both  of whom are members of Ihe order.  In tho course of his remarks Mr. Ihnn  gave some interesting figures In regard to the work of the Oddfellows  He said that if any person would look  at the official reports of the Order in  tho Province of British Columbia they  would find that within flkh"t ten  years the order had aMKt doubled  itself,    the membership   standing     at  dispensed six million dollars annually,  The lodge fellowship had Mi homes or  places of refuge where were maintained  widows, orphans and people who   wert  in penury at an annual cost of $700,-  000.   If they    looked into the official  I reports they would see that the order  had had in the past a rapid and very  strong growth in po;nt of membership  and the character of its achievement,  nnd he had    no doubt himself at oil  as an Oddfellow that what had    been  done in the past was but an earnest  oi* what would be in the days to come.  It was not necessary for him to tell  them, for they knew it as well as he  did, that it was well for them to constantly remind themselves that     Odd-  fellowship did    not consist     in     the  rogaUa, nor in the banners and decoration of its lodge rooms.    These   had  their uses but they were nothing more  than the loaves    on the tree.    Oddfel-  lowship did not consist  in the ritual  and ceremonials, in the lectures     and  charges,    and    in the signs nn i pass  words.    These also had their meaning  and uses, but  they were little    more  than  some of the branches that grew  upon  (he tree of Oddfellowship.     The  tree of Oddfellowship  or  any     othei  order might have leaves and branches  and trunk; but a    tree of   any     sort  must have a root.     Their order   had  four mottoes.     One motto was invisible, the other three wero visible.   The  three visible mottoes they wore on the  lapels of their coats, the other     one  they wore in their hearts. Those three  visible links were symbols.   The great  est motto of Oddfellowship was "Trast  in God".    Oddfel'Iowphip was not     a  closed doors and find its origin in the  secrecies of human hearts. Therefore  all those objection^ were of no avail  and no value if the mighty principles  for" which OddVlowship stood were to  has for twenty-five years been a re  searcher und observer of abnormal, obscure mental and social phenomena.

It was the Bupreme goal  of Oddfellowship, and he believed it  was true of three or four other secret  societies to ennoble humanity.  At tho conclusion of the service the  Oddfe'.'owB returned to the lodge room  in procstsion, and at a session, of the  order heai'tv votes of thanks wore  passed to the Hevs. A. Dunn and D,  J.

Amusements  THE COUNT OF MONTE CBISTO  The Opera Houtie management faithfully adhering to its policy of showing  the world's grtmtont productions, the  real big thing.*, in motion pictures has  secured for exhibition next Wednesday,  James U'Neil in his clever 'interpretation of "The Count of Monte CrUto."  This is another Famous Players film  and a feature which will compare well  with "In tnu Biuhop's Carriage" "Ohel  turn'' nnd other productions' by the  same company.  Few stories arc better known or  more popular than this stirring human  tale of Duinns, and perhaps no other  fiction character has made such a lasting impression on ull the rending races  of the world us thu leading figure of  this great work. The production of  this story poi-sesw'H more than a literary importance aside from the fact  thai the story, which has been translated in every modern ' n ' is now  premnted in the universal language  of pictures. Rut added to this distinction is the fact that the guiding  character of this masterful tale n�� portrayed by its greatest interpreter, il-  iustrutos hie stranjecareer through -the  vivid and faithful .tur mv of the film  Truly, "The Count of Monte Oris to"  with .lames O'Neil, is a triumph of  the motion picture art and tho Famous  Vlaycrs take just pride in heralding as  a masterpiece of production this "Photo Play Ue Luxe."  Patrons of the Opera House will do  well to remember that this splendid  pet nre can only be seen here on one  dnyi Wednesday, at the reg liar afternoon and evening performnnces. Although this is a very expensive production Manager Duncan ha" decided  to show it at the usual' prices and he  feels confident that tho public will  ������how their appreciation of his efforts  to give them a real high clasB picture  entertainment, by a liberal patronage  on this occasion.  Ancient Incubation  THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS WERU  AHEAD  The announcement is made by a  British scientist that he has discovered how the ancient Egyptians incubated chiokens to the number of 120,000,-  000 a year. Ho has found incubators,  which he declares were used in Egypt  live thousand years ago.  The secret has been well guarded  but it is laid bare at last. They had  no oil stoves or gas or electric heated incubators, but they had ovens,  which worked much better, even  though they requited more constant  tending. Each oven was calculated to  hold seven thousand ojta, nnd the fuel  by which it wns healed consisted of  chopped straw and dung, but for the  last ten days ol tlio hatching, the en-!  ergy was supplied altogether by (he  chickens themselves.  It is the commonest error of '.hose  oporating our modern incubators to  use too much heat, cspooMly toward  the end ot the period, and now wc  may learn Irom the old Egyptians how  not to do things as well as how to  do I hem. The use of the straw and  other light fuel shows that tha Egyptians wero most careful to avoid too  intouso heat at any timo. Wo thought  that we wero tho first to use incubators, but wo aro fifty oonturies behind  the times.   O  DISEASES OK TREES  TIIE KISS1NT, CUP  The Opera Houso moving picture  program will feature the famous English Hacing dram:; next Thursd.iy.  Thoro has ol late boon a considerable  demand for Mulish films and Manager  Duncan has arranged to got aB many  oi these ns are available in the Ctin-  adiaa market. "The Kissing Cup," a  racing drama in four parts will givo  patrons an opportunity to see a British subject produced by a British maker. Produced' in England this picture  has all Iho pretty1 scenic environments  to lie lound in that country, and the  plot ol tho story is so arranged as to  be thrilling in pails and entertaining  from first to last. It is said that the  race scene is quite sensational aud  that the love story around which is  twined Ihe various situations is car-  ierl throughout the story.  Electric rat trapH are in uso in Am-  terdam. Thoy are connected by a  wire wilh a supply of electricity. 'Ihe  place where the bait rests is the only  part ol Ihe trap which is a conductor,  and the moment the rat touches this  a shock closes his career.  If you eat too much the chances  are that you will get fat and flabby.  II is the same with trees. II the food  they get is too easily digested tho  libres ol tho tree turn spongy aud  rotten nnd the sap weakens. When  fruit trees turn fat, the Iruit is at  first richer and ripu'. It soon becomes insipid, however, A man may  keop down his fat with diet, exercise,  etc. There is no cure lor the fat  tree.  Corpulence is not the only disease  trees share with us. many plants are  subject to anaemia��� clover, onions,  cucumbers nnd melons being the  chief sufferers. The remedy for this unnatural pallor is, just as in the case  of human beings, iron. A dozen large  nails driven into the roots of an  anaemic Uee will, in most oasesi bring  it backSBlealth, ns tho acid' sap eats  away the iron and carries iron salts  up the trunk.  o  BIG CIOVEIINMENT TIMBER SALE  A deal in si ami ing timber in the  neighborhood of Fort George haB just  beon carried out by tho government  sale to Mr. H.

ART OF TRANSPLANTING  When most amateurs transplant a  shrub or tree their desire is to save  all the branches and twigs possible,  because they hope that they will thus  get an extra large plant in a new spot  without waiting.  As a matter of faet, the surest way  to get an abundant growth is to lavish with the prunin- -riifc. The leas  branches a transplanted plant has, the  less work the roots will have to do;  and the roots need all' the relief possible, beoause for some weeks after  transplanting it is goinj to be busy  enough trying to get a new hold in  the earth.  Therefore, the first thing that should  bo done with the shrub that is to be  moved is to prune all the branches off,  and, if at all possible, to remove the  top. The closer you prune baok to  the original woody stem, the more  likely will it be that the plant will  begin to grow in its now home practically at once.  Another thing: Do not fear to out  the root wherever it Is at all injured  or looks at all unhealthy. A siok  root is just as bad for a plant as a  siok branch.  WONDERFUL WOOD  A most wonderful wood is that of  the tropical tree called greenheart.  The tree belongs to the laurel family  and is exported mainly from the island of Trinidad and British Guiana.  The wood is so nearly indestruotible  that no limit to its life is known. It is  used chiefly in ship and dock building.  The wood is proof against tbe white  ant on land and the teredo in salt  water. A United States government  report says:.  Greenheart has been known to stand  in wharves for over thirty years, and  lopfs that havo remained under water  for a hundred years arc in perfectly  sound condition.  Greenheart's extraordinary resistance to decay is pro'-nVy owing to tho  presence of an alkaloid known as bi-  birine and also to certain resinous substances known as tyloses. The latter  are reddish brown masses of living  cells that grow in solid masses within  little cavities that they often fill completely. As they grow with ths tree  they turn black and make the wood of  the older trees black.  As in all tropical trees, whose  growth is continuous throughout tie  year, there are no annual growth rings  and it is thought the trees do not  reach maturity under 250 years. A  greenheart tree is from sixty to a hundred feet in height, it is an evergreen  without knots and has a broad, open  crown. Tho wood weighs about seventy-five pounds to the cubic foot and  resists a crushing foroe ol 12,000 lbs.,  to the square inch.  ONLY JERSEY CATTLE SEEN IN  JERSEY  Jersey is a fertile and beautiful' little  island, which geographically should belongs to Franco, but, as part of William the Conqueror's inheritance, it  became an English possession at the  Norman conquest. As is well known,  it is the home of that most attractive  breed of oows to which it gives its  name. They are a most valuable and  valued possession and source of income  to the islanders, and the import of  any other breed to the island is very  strictly forbidden. The Jersey cows  are very attractive in appsaranoe.  Smaller and daintier than ordinary  cows, and of a soft fawn color deepening to dark brown down the legs  and on the muzzle, with small heads  and big eyes, they are nearly as beautiful as deer. Curiously enough, in  Jersey they aro not allowed to roam  about tho Holds in numbers, but each  oow is tied with a long chain to a  firmly fixed slake, frequently quite out  of sight ol any other cow, and apparently isolated from all companionship.  They are very friondly and always extend an eager welcome to visitors.  Ths north roast of tho island is  quite magnificent, with its groat gray  rocks covered in August with patches  of brilliant heather and sloping steeply down to a peculiar lurtjuois-oolored  sea. Looking down or up Ihe precipitous slopes where vegetation of any  kind is to be had, one may invariably  ���ee a few oows dotted about at wide  intervals, and it is always worth while  to climb up or down to ihem, for they  seem so genuinely glad of the break  in their isolation.

At that  time there was a great stir about this  western country. Emigration was  looking this way ' and settlors were  flocking in at a rapid rate. I settled  in the P. M. Colony in a township  muoh finer than any adjoining or surrounding it. The township was completely Bottled up in '82 and it was  a mere coincidence that I got a homestead in '83. The hopes ol tho settlers were elated. In a few years they  thought they would retire with a fortune and live their remaining years in  luxury. Very soon the tune was  changed. Disheartened by frost and  dry soasons many, as soon as they received their patents flocked out of the  country, selling their homesteads for  a mere song���somo of them lees than  one dollar per acre. Many of '.hose  homesteads are now held at ?35 an acre.  Tho flocking out continued until only  two in that fine township, ol tho pioneers were living on their homesteads.  Thero was a wail went up about the  frozen region, nine months winter and  three months cold weather I It was  throwing money away <o buy land in  that vicinity! Today farmers, who  oome in there comparatively poor are  wealthy, living in houses, some of  them costing from 83,000 to 87,100. I  question if there is another township  in the province where so much grain  is grown. I have contended and I  think justly so that for miles around  Indian Head is the best agricultural  district in the Dominion. Farmers  thero have made more money in less  timo than tillers of the soil elsewhere.  Companies farming on a large scale  proved a failure. Major Belle at Indian Head became a bankrupt tilling  the finest soil the sun ever shone on.  Tbo settlers afterwards plowing bo-  hind oxen aro now living in magnificent houses, riding in autos. It is  quite usual to grow 80 to 100 bushels  of oats to tho acre. 1 believe it is  conceded by many that Saskatchewan  is, and will be the finest agricultural  province in tho Dominion. I never  regretted coming west and have always sounded Iho praises of this country. 1 could not bo induced to go back  to Ontario,to live. I have not disliked the climate, and saw worse  storms in Ontario than thero. The  air is dry, I do not suffer like in a  damp atmosphere. It is true it is  pretty cold sometimes���when 40 or 50  below zero, you don't suffer with ihe  heat and settlers do not go around  with their dusters on.  Having a particular friend in Vancouver 1 was induced to visit him and  I have intended going east but circumstances opened the way to get west  instead and now 1 am glad of it.  I have spent the most pleasant winter  of my life, enjoying the society of tho  western people and Buffered nothing  from tho cold. Vancouver is certainly  a fine city. I liko it more than I ran  tell. It has made more rapid strides  then any other city in the Dominion.  When I came west it was unknown and'  alter getting a lair start was completely wiped out with a fire, one solitary building remaining. No doubt  in the near futuro the gruin, or most  of it from Alberta, Sashatchewun will  go that way. Jim Hill tho great financier and railway man Bays that  in ten years Vancouver will have one  million of a population. If that prophesy pans out the city will have to  get a move on. 1 saw a low thore  from Saskatchewan and quito a number from the township I came from in  Ontario. The taxes on some lots are  1200.00 and tho mayor and aldermen  get $212.00 per year.  I was told that Kelowna was a nioe  plaoe to live, n good olimale, perhaps  not quits so mild as Vancouver; a  great fruitgrowing district: could beat  the world in apples, both in quality  and flavor and in potatoes could leave  nil other lands in the shade. A groat  number of (hose from the prairie that  f knew, and bear about, and their contentment indicates they nave struck  the right spot. In early Ji>ys when  we only had the main lino of the C.P.  R., our business took us to Indian  Head, Smtaluta, Woolseley and Gron-  foll. I see in Kelowna and district  from these places the Morrisons,  Thompsons, Harveys, Crawfords, Gad-  desos, Glenn., Dalgleishes, Faulkners,  Tones, Copeland., McDonalds, En-  nis, Campbells, Marshals, Coventry*,  Bray's, Potters', Lecaines', Cooper's  Flemmings, Taylors and Walkers' and  others at Vernon, Endsrby and Salmon Arm. No doubt such a recruiting has dono much toward tho onward  movement of your city. I am glad  lo learn of those I have some knowledge of, as doing well and being a  orodit where they have taken up their  residence. Crawford, of Indian Head  and Morrisons of Wolseley are distributing for your needs, and Jones'  and Copeland are assisting In managing  the affairs of your city. Mayor Jones  occupies the highest position in the  confidence of the electors, and Mias  Fleming, of-Wolseley stood at the head  of the great piano competition. A little girl that come with her mother to  the post office in the.P. M. Colony in  the early days wilh an ox conveyance  is now the wife of the Dominion representative for Vancouver, and accompanied her husband to Ottawa at the  recent session of parliament. Settlers  walked 35 miles from station to tbe  Colony, it was a luxury to ride in a  wagon drawn by oxen. Many went  to church in thot way and you are  riding here in your fine carriages and  automobiles and I presume never en  joyed the rich experience of the 3as  katohowan pioneers.  I find the citizens of Kelowna happy,  contentod, genial and jovial and I presume this dolightful and salubrious cli-  ma(e has a mellowing influence. I  have been driven around in buggies  and motor cars and shown the sights,  and I fear I shall never bo able lo repay such kindness only by good wishes  and nice sayings nnd will lind that  much cosier and less trouble than lenity doing something for them. The  price of land soonis way out of reach,  but it only requires experts to work  such figures to a financial suoce.s. If  I wero to buy at 8900 or 81000 per  acre and cultivate it 1 know I would  soon be a bankrupt. You have the  mountains aM around and they seem  quite near and one would conclude  there was not much more than a garden patch here, but as you travel, the  mountains seem to keep the some distance, ond we are told there is an immense tract of land in itho valley. Tho  great number ot vehicles of oil description continuo'ly on the road, must  come from somewhere. The constant  stream ol rigs with blood steeds ami  well dressed ladies ond gentlemen  would indicate wenlth on your Bide of  tho mountains. I havo seen more ladies riding on horseback ond driving  on Pendozi street in one day than yau  would see in some parts farther east  in on age, or at least a long     time.  and good looking ladies too. Had I  come here when it was a wDdsroess  it is the last place I would have  thought of settling. So many havs  dono well here and a stranger coming  into your midst could not help but  admire the climate. 1 was told by  one man here that be likes Kelowna  better than Victoria or Vancouver  One of your most prominent citizens  (I have koown him for 30 years) alter  making his fortune in that frozen re-.  gion spent a considerable sum in seek  ing a good place to live and after visiting Vancouver, California and other  desirable places of note, has settled  in Kelowna as the most suitable place  to end bis days.  I am delighted with British Columbia, in fact I am infatuated with it,  and the fine stamp of men you have)  here from Indian Head, Sintaluta, Wol  ���y and Grenfell, speaks volumes for the Okanagan valley.  I will never forget my first trip to  the coast. In coming through tbe  mountains with a.long, train I was  ihin'iin: of the howl, -when the line "as  built, that the running of the train  would never pay tho axlo greasel, British Columbia is by no means an insignificant province. It is noted for  fruit, vegetables, minerals, oil, moo!  and few Countries in the world has  such an immense quantity of timber.  At tho present rate of using and no  more growing) it is estimated thot it  will last nearly 250 years.  Impressions have been made on my  mind that th-? sea oi time will never  be able to efface, but I hove already  trespassed too lar on your valuable  space. I have always had a good  opinion ol Saskatchewan��� it has done  well by me ond I have nothing but  good things to say of it, but after*  yisitin-j in the west I feel that it  would be hord to spend another winter in that provinoe.  Wislrn,^ the western province all  success and prosperity in every In id-  able undertaking I remain a lover of  the whole northwest, nnd especially the  northwestern province.  T. S.

Canada's Gia it  Telescope  Canada in going to hunt tho hcuv-  cna with n now telescope which will  he tho biggest in the world, saya u  writer in an English journal. It will  cost 1*13,0(10, nnd it�� mirror, of tho  most perfect glass which the skill' ot'  man can produce, will be r.x feet in  diameter.  No ono but an optician or an astronomer can realize the difficulties  that lie before the makers of such a  mirror.  At present tho fined, (hough not the  largest, telescope in existence is the  Yerkes.  The Yerkes tclsBCopo is seventy-lour  feet long and weighs about seven  tons. Figures mean liltlc, but if yon  take Cleopatra's Need e and add lo it  the length of n tall man, you will get  a fairly accurate idea of the length of  this tremendous instrument.  The lens of the Yerkes was mado by  the liate Alvan Clarke. It ir forty  Inches in diameter, and it took the  firm four years to reduce the rough  casting to its present perfection.  Imagine, then, tho difficulties con-  jronting the firm who undertook to  produce the seventy-two inch mirror  of the new Canadian instrument!  In the first place there is the easting. Tho vory finest, flint glass must  bo made, and several lcnSCB must be  cast at the same time. The reason is  that, after being moulded, the glass  takes eight months slow cooling before it can be examined with safety,  and then the tiniest bubble or flaw will  be sufficient to render it ontirely useless.  Granted that a flawless lens has been  safely cast and cooled, that in only  the beginning of the real task.  First, the glnss is ground down with  sand and water so as to get rid of  the roughest projections on its surface.  Then it is treated with coarso emery  and finer and yet finer grades are  used until the last touches are given  with rouge.  Even after this there are certain to  be a number of tiny corrections needed which will keep th1 expert busy for  weeks or months. So exceedingly fine  'ib the work, so delicate the surface,  that a little rubbinj with the tmre  finger will be quite sufficient io deflect  tho ray of light given off by the tiny  star millions of miles away, and so  to distort its image.  Tho largest telescope in the world is  the so-called "sidero stab" shown at  the Paris Exposition in 1899. Tt has  a lens nine inches wider than that of  the Yerkes, but the instrument is not  mounted in a dome. The tube itself,  which is one hundred and ninety-seven  feet long, does not move, but is fixed  horizontally in place, alwnyn poinding  north.  At the object glass end, a great  plane mirror, turning as the observer  wishes, oatohea the light and reflects it  to the eyepiece nearly two hundred  feet away.  When the huge lens was Iwing polished, it was so necessary to avoid  hRnfing. that after each two minutes  of work, it wns necessary to allow  half an hour of complete rest in an  absolutely even temperature.  THE EXPLOSION OF GUNPOWDER  Tho explosion of gunpowder is divided into three distinct stages, called  the ignition, inflammation and combustion. The ignition is the setting  on firo of the first grain, while the  inflammation is the spreading of the  flame over the surface of the powder  from the point of ignition. Combustion is the burning up of each groin.  The value of gunpowder iB due to the  fact that when subjected to sufficient  heat it becomes a gas which expands  with frightful rapidity. The so-called  explosion that takes place when a  match ia touched lo gunpowder it?  merely a chemical change, during whiob  there is a sudden evolution of gases  from the original' so'id.  New Maps Issued  ior Pre-emptors  Tha surveys branch of the department of lands has issued tho firat  maps of a new series of ten pre-emp-  tor's maps, embracing in a comprehensive way the great part of the Interior  of the province. The publication of  those maps, which was commenced by  the department of lands in 1911, when  four maps were issued, is for the purpose of showing intending Bottlers the  ureas surveyed and distinguishing between the lands available for pre-emption and those alionatod. The four  maps issued in that year covered 12,-  000 square miles. Tho great advance  made in the work of the survey branch  is ovidenocd by tho fact that the ten  maps being issued thiB year will cover  ovor 100,000 square miles. The majority of them will bo available to the  public by the middle of .Tunc  Tho two maps which are now Complete are those dealing with lands in  tho vicin'ty ol Fort (ieorge and of the  South Pork ol the Fraser, where on  June 1 and l"> nn area tl 80,000 acres  in the reserve on either side of the  Frasor llivor, along the routo ol the  firnnd Trunk Pacific Hnilway, will be  opened to settlers, I he eastern part of  McBrido on Juno 1, and the western  pnrt ol Fort George on June 15. A  pamphlet has been issued by the department of lands describing the district.  Tho pra-emptor's maps in tbe first  year of their publication, as stated  covered but 12,000 square miles. The  following year 40,000 square miles were  covered; last year the area embraced  totaled 80,000 nnd this year the extent of territory embraced in these  maps is 100,000 square miles. When  (he publication of I heso maps was commenced in 1911, the information .available did not warrant anything lwttor  than a rough map, intended solely for  the convenience of land seekers, and  while this has been the prime object  kept in view in the annual, publication  oi these useful maps, -the increase in  knowledge of the geographical features  of the country, aris'nj from the extension of surveys in advance of settlement, has enabled a great advance  to be made. Today the maps, while  filling tho purpose for whieh thov were  intended, are also good gineral utility  maps.  A new feature appear'n? for the first  time this year is the showing in A distinct color the,lands reserved for university purposes, and lands reserved  for public auction. All maps- of the pro-  emptor's series aro distributed to the  public free of charge, and are sent in  quantities for this purpose to the offices of the various ro vnni:nt agents  throughout the province.  RAILWAY CAMP BURNED Ot'T  Fire on Saturday destroyed Bruoe  k McGuire's camp twenty miles west  of Revelstoke and rendered 150 men  homeless and without supplies. The  camp is run by Bruce k MoGuiro, C.P.  R. sub-contractors, in connection with  the double tracking operations on the  main line to Vancouver. The origin  of the fire is not known. The men's  quartos and supplies were burned out  and supplies had to lie obtained from  Revelstoke to meet temporary needs.  As a result of the fire, the wires were  down for some time and telegraphic  communications interrupted.  A CLOCK OP GLASS  A dock constructed throughout ol  glass, is the result of six years' work  on tiie part of a Bavarian glass  polisher. The plates and pillars whieh  form the framework are ol glass, and  are bolted together with glass screws.  The dial-plate, hands, shafts, and cogwheels are ol glass and glass wedges  and pins are used lor lasteniog the  various parts of the running gear together. Like the cloek itself, the key  by which it is wound is of glass. Tho  construct ion ol the remarkable time-  pieoe was a matter ol infinite pains.  Some of tho parts had to be made as  many as forty times before a clock  that would go could be produced.  A remarkable exhibition of possibilities ol wireless eleotrio communication  was recently given at the Eiffel Tower  in Paris. A specially sensitized receiver  was installed, the instrument being Ihe  invention of an Italian, and by its use  M. M��r/.i, a tenor, could be heard singing at Lacken, near Brussels, about  226 miles distant from Paris. The air  of the song was heard quite distinctly  although the words could not be distinguished. Tn another experiment  with the same receiver the "Marseillaise," played by a gramaphone auty-  two miles distant was clearly heard.  John Boyle, aged 96 was instantly  killed in the Centre Star MLu, Ron-  land, last Friday. He was riding on sn  eleotrio train underground when his ',  head struck an ore chute.

Derek  Manson puts forward the theory, which  is now generally accepted, that many  centuries ago there was a race of  white men in America, and that a  white race inhabited; America in pre  historio times is proved by a number  of facts whieh fit in with this theory.  There is, lor instance, the prophecy ol  the return ol the white god, CJuet-  zaleoatl, whioh inspired the Mexicans  with the belief that it was being fulfilled by the arrival ol the Spaniards,  and which made the conquest ot the  oountry much easier lor the invaders.  Again, among oertain tribes pf Indians  in America are to be found a number  possessed ol lair hair and complexions.  These fair types of Indians are to be  found only on or near the Pacific  coast, and the number of Indians thus  distinguished from their fellows is too  widespread to admit of the suggestion  that thia intermingling of bipod is of  recent origin. In the same districts  there- have been discovered the remains of a forgotten civilization in  the form of ancient buildings of majestic proportions and carvings representing types of a distinctly Aryan  origin, quite different from the native  races of Indians.  Mr. Mason's theory is that thousands ol years ago a foreign raoe  migrated across the Pacific Ocean to  America, where they founded civilizations that had crumbled into dust  ages before Columbus reached itt  shore*. Fair haired and bearded, they  must have been Europeans. It is  believed that this migration was  gradual.and by way oi the islands  of the Pacific. The inhabitants of  Polynesia are. of Aryan origin, a fact  whioh seems to support the theory of  a European migration. Moving Irom  island to island, this seafaring white  people finally reached America, landing  in Peru and neighboring regions. At  the coasts oi Peru dried up the- were  driven northwards to Central America  and Yucatan, where their civilization  survived for lour thousand years. Then  the raoe perished off the laoe ol America, leaving traoes ol its civilization  in vague traditions, in ruined buildings, and pale-faced Indiana. This it  all that remains to attest the exittenoe  of a hardy and enterprising people  who ages ago crossed the Pacific and  built up empires and civilizations the  memory of which has long since perished with their transoient glories.

April 4th, 1014. 30-34  It is difficult for one not intimately  acquainted with the brilliant and  sparkling gems to realize just how  hard a diamond may be.  A carpenter runs his plane over a  pieoe of wood and out comes the  pretty curly shavings. Now, II a plane  is made with a diamond blade instead  ol a steel blade and the blade It set  just right the plane when run over  glass will turn out line, thinnest shavings something like those made hy a  plane on wood.  This gives some idea ol the wonderful hardness of a diamond, yet there is  something harder than a diamond. It  is another diamond or even the same  diamond, for a diamond may be extra  hard in one part and not so hard as  it ought ta be in another part.  The Kohinoor diamond was in places  to hard the cutters feared they might  have to give up work on it. Other  parti of the stone were soft, if vou  could say any diamond is soft.  If a diamond it placed between the  ends ol two heaviest steel railway rails  and then by hydraulic pressure the  rails are forced oloser until they  touch, the diamond will sink right into the steel almott Kke a key forced  into beeswax.

COPELAND   ���   Owner  For countless ages a divining rod  in the hands of oertain mystics hat  supposedly been capable ol locating  ore deposits-and underground streams,  but the stories told, oi its mysterious  virtues were long considered by modern scienoe as mere remnants oi mediaeval superstition.  Recent diseoveries in many fields  have, however, made the scientist  more cautious and tolerant in his attitude towards phenomena disagreeing  with his ideas. The divining rod has  thus been taken out ol tbe scrapheap  to wbioh it has long beon consigned,  and made the subjeot ol many official  tests to solve its mystery.  The solution of the problem seems  however, to be near at band, experiments recently made by E. K. Muller,  of Zurich, showing that the marvellous movements are mainly oleutrioa)  and magnetic, though only those endowed with a special sensitiveness will  respond to them.  Mr. Jaggi-Perrard, one of the masters of the divining rod, placed himself at Muller's disposal. The lirat ex-,  periment consisted in keeping a bruss  pendulum or a divining rod of whalebone over a copper plate charged with  eleotricity. The pendulum would then  move back and forth violently under  tbe aotion of a negative oharge and  bo silenced by a posili -e charge, and  the divining rod was, according to the  sign oi the charge, deflected in an upward or downward direction.  Another experiment was made in  order further to examine the subject's  sensitiveness to electric charges of opposite signs. A set of glass eups belonging to a galvanio battery was  placed before Mr. Jaggi, who, though  ignorant of the nature of those cups,  found his divining rod to deflect alternately upwards and, downwards on  passing over them.  Incidentally, these experiments show  that the human organism, in spesial  excitement, will exhibit sensitiveness  and faculties as yet unsuspected.  Tho French Academy of Scientists  has also been investigating the rod,, oi  mystery, appointing a commission to  experiment with members of the association of so-called sorcerers and diviners. In the report of the proceedings given by Professor P'Arson.'al,  well-known through his work with  electrical currents, it waB stated that  streams of water could be located at  a depth of from fifteen to fifty-seven  feet with great eoeuracv.  . S-.���_,  DANGERS IN LAUGHING  Few people know what dangers lurk  in excessive laughter. When we laugh  our regular breathing is changed,  coming in quick, short respirations, because tho throat muscles! are contracted. It is for this reason that,  when laughing very heartily at some  good joke, we have often to gasp for  breath. At times we are obliged lo  hold our sides on account of the pain  a hearty laugh causes us, owing to  the partial suffocation of the lungs  through the cutting off of their proper  air supply.  Every muscle in the body becmes  contracted during a continued fit of  laughter. Of tne blood vessels in  the laoe become congested causing it  to turn red and even purple. Should  this congestion continue for any  length of time, apoplexy, resulting, in  death might well occur. It is belle  in these circumstances to laugh until  we cry, for the shedding of tears relieves the congestion of the brain.  Tears caused by grief do good in the  same way, and that is how, after a  great sorrow, many people have been  taved from brain congestion and madness by tho timely shedding of a fuw  tears.   O���-   More than two hundred aad twenty  conventions, at which more than. 500,-  000 accredited delegate! are oxpeoted to  assemble, will meet at San Francisco  during the Panama- I'acifio Exposition  In 1015.
