Owing to the unpostJiuiuty of doing- tho  work without teams lor whioh ihore  were no lunds avaaauie, iho cour'ul  decided that they uouad not ..aJLi.ly  with the request at preseut.  ihe police ohiei s report lor November showed a very quiet state of affairs lor the month. The tines collect,  ed amounted to only fit) and tiie cases beiore the magistrate wert trilling.  Attention was again drawn to tbe  necessity of storekeepers seeing that  their premises were seoui-oly locked  alter business hours, a a.'oouuiion  whioh was often negaeoted.  It was stated that since the njw  Dairy Regulations came into foroe il  persons had applied lor licence, and  having complied with the conditions,  had been reoommended for aooeplince.  Mr. Afoide Bornais waited on the  oounoil, and informed him that he  had taken out a permit for the construction of a houae on his loi on  Pendozi Btreet, near tbe oreek. After  laying the foundation he had discovered that the creek had underminaid his  lot, and he wat afraid that tht stability oi the foundation would nt endangered. He asked the 'ounoil to i_s-  ���ist him in protecting his ptopertv by  supplying lumber to build a retaining  wall.  Mr, Bornais was informed that the  council could not spend money for the  improvement of private nro'-orty, at  munioipal funds oould only bs used  in the publio interests. It was dicid-  ed to make an inspection of the plaoe  to see whether there was any donrer  involved to the Pendozi ttreet bridge,  Alderman Sutherland made a recommendation that hereafter, when a tenant applied for water, eleotrio light,  or power, he be requested to obtain  the owner's signature to such implication, guaranteeing payment of all  rates incurred under suoh ixvniicilaon,  or to make a deposit sutniusnt to  cover two months rates before the service is connected. The reason given  for this recommendation was that al-  tv--".rh the by-laws make the owners  responsible for arrears of rates, vtl.���  oalled upon to pay suoh arrears, several owners have claimed I- "0e of  suoh. regulations, and he was of opinion that the adoption of this suggestion would remjve a constant source  of irritation.  The recommendation was unloved  by the oounoil and the Water ond  Light oommittee requested to m.'*n  nrraraaromentH to arive the same effret,  Alderman Sutherland lw-Tted that  tht oity's notios to the 0.

Alderman Sutherland su ���estod 'that  tbe Light and Water committee be  authorized to engage two men to cover the water intake nipes at the power house to protect them from frost,  tbe work to be paid for at the itiiefj  rate.   To thit the oounoil avtctd,  Alderman Copeland suggested that a  number of men seekin- relief could  be given work draining the slou-'s iu  the north ward.

At the  present time he said, suoh a law wus  needed more than ever, tbt recent oil  boom at Calgary being a flagrant example of the kind of thing which it  was sought to prevent. If people only  knew, said Mr. Dynes of the amount  of money whioh went out of tho valley for stocks in all kinds of fake companies, they would be astonished. If  this money could be kept at home  there would be ample funds for legiti- B��f_vea'  mate enterprises, whioh found it hard  to finance.  Mr. R. B.

He dealt with many of the  problems which caanfront the Dominion  today, a-*'-' propounded argumenlB that  would jolt many of the present day  politicians out of thoir ruts. The lecture, howevor, was not a nMitioal one  in the accepted sense of the term, but  a Btrong plea for Imperial Cai-oPtra-  tion in preference to Imperial federation,, and attaoked weaknesses in both  political parties. At the close of the  meeting Mr. Kogers was given a vory  hearty voto of thanks, and an earnest  invitation to "Come again."

In addition    to his Popularity  as a medical man Dr. Huyoke has taken a keen interest in the snorts of the  voung men   and in various social activities, and he will be muoh missed.

PROMPTLY  When Joseph F. Glidden, a farmer of  De Kalb, 111., baok ' in 1873, got the  Idea of making wire fences with barbs  on thtm, he had no more harmful de-:  sign than to teach norses, oattle and'  hogs, by tbe pricks they might re*  oeivo, that wire fences were meant to  keep them in or out. '  When Unole Sam, on Dec. 24. 1874'  "avo Farmer Qlidden the rhristwnh  nrift of a oatent on his ne<v device, hi��  Idea was heralded to the v,-urld. The  western prairies, with 'heir hulk ol  lending materials, had iried Bangle  stnfcds of wire, but thev availed lhlli  and the whole consumption of wire for  fencing ib 1874 wat on'- SO tons  Glidden'B barbs mabe tht iiattl'  think, and the farmers soon saw their  worth. In. ten years the wire fercoit  had increased 10,000-fold/ and in tin),  voars moro itt growth had been the  foundation of the Wire Trust,  But Glidden reaped small reward  from his invontisn until February 29'  "Jfl3, when the United Stetet SuprcRi  Cwirt upheld hia claims, and he was.  able to collect royalty on all the fen  cea that had been strap- before. He  livodU years to enjoy it. and died in1  his home town* in 1906, at the ngoo'.  93 venn.  Quito naturallv some animals ond, s  ed bv Olidden's fenoing "ashed them-  ttlvet on tho barbs.

'Between 90 and 95 farms, divided into three dittriots, were visited  in taoh of the provinces of Manitoba,  Saskatchewan and Alberta.  In Saskatchewan, out of 94 farmers  visited by tht Commission's representative, 70 leave all of their implo  ments out of doors. On 73 ol ' the  farms, there were no implement sheas  of any description. On 41 of tho  farms, sheds large enough to cover  part of the implements were found,  in moat coses thit'being only a buggy  or a democrat, but not on one tingle  faint wat the machinery alt housod.  Not one farmer wee found who painted hit implementt to protect them  from tht weather.  In 'Manitoba only 14 out ot 94 keep  their machinery under cover during  tht winter, while 44 claim fo keep a  part of it inside. On 34 of the Mani-  I'toba farnra no provision whatever is  made for protecting the implements,  and onlv four claim to have done any  painting.  In the three distrlots visited in Alberta, mixed farming it carried ob  quite extensively, making more barn  room available, to that implements  an mon likely to be protected; but,  even here, 87 out of the 99' viiited  leave all machinery out of doors.  In one distriot in Ontario Where 40  farmers wen visited, every man housed his implements during tht winter,  although node of thete men do    any  < iuting.  In the Ontario dittriot viiited when  the implements an housed, the average life of the binder was found to be  between 16 and 17 yean. Many binders were teen which were in good running order after cutting 20 season's  crops.  In Saskatchewan and Manitoba,  where so much of the machinery is  left out of doors,1 the average lit�� of  the binder is given by the farmer aa  about 7 yean which is less than half  that of the binder protected from the  weather. Many binders do not last  as long aa 7 yaan. One farmer near  Moosomln, Sask., who, after 12 yean  Was retiring from the farm, held an  auction sale. His binder, after cutting  12 crops sold for $80, or SO per oent.,  ot the original cost, and his other  machinery at proportionately high  prioet. It had all been well' housed  and the neoessary painting and repairing had been done to keep it in  good order. On an adjoining farm a  binder which had out only three crops  but which had been neglected and had  had stood out ot doors, was being relegated to the scrap heap and a new  one avas being purohated.  An implement shed costs money, hut  if its use will double or treble the  length oi time the machinery will Inst,  it is a good investment. Farmers often lay that Ihey cannot afford to  build a shed. The truth is, trey  roallv cannot afford to be without  one. Apart from the additional power neoetsery for operation, the depreciation on unhoused machinery on the  average tiled farm it to great at to  amount to much more than tbe east  and upkeep of an implement shed. The  Under works for onlv a short time  during the year, while machinery in a  shop works the whole year through  and lastt proportionately many allmes  longer. It it simply a matter of  care. The life of a maohine extends  in direct ratio to the oan it receive!,  and abuse and neglect will shorten  tht life of ant mechanism: The manufacturer is not responsible for the1  oan.of tho machinery after it is sold:  This rests entirely with the farmer,  and aa a common aehte business proposition he ahould look lifter his own  interests sufficiently to house his implements end thus 'save the thousands  of dollars waited annually <n unnecessary depreclatlon.^F.CI.N.  Preparations  . What I am convinced in the true explanation of the amazingly r*v*fl tub-  iHjtfon ol Aramur by 'he Germans and  afterwards of Maubeuee baa been given me bv a resident of Lilfce who arrived in London recently from Antwerp. The story offers so simple an  explanation that I beKeve it will be  found in due time fully confirmed by  local evidence -which cannot have been  obliterated.  Everyone knows that ihe irroat, German 42-centimeter howitzers requite a  concrete base whioh haB to be most  carefully and laboriously constructed.  A certain German Baron has occupied  for somo vears a chateau situated five  miles from Namur. Last sprin-/ he  mado a new tennis court .in the  grounds. German workmen were employed, and a deep concrete foundation  Was laid to verv precise measurements  with o line of rails running: to its  centre Above it an nsnhnlt tennis  eourt was then laid, the presence of  the concrote beneath nnd of 'he mils,  whioh were simnoHod bv those few Uel-  irians who saw them to be niranlv i  convenience for brinping up the con  erete, having naturally no ii<it>ortnnce  attached to it by those who plaved  tennis there this summer.  When the Gormans made their ot-  tack on Namur tbe \ri\nt .luwil/ers.  which can move only.at ihe * Up of  two miles an hour, Jra-vn by O-irtv-  two horses each, were tilacei in position on the rails and firmly sl<ilionnl  on the concrete, which was exposed  and cleared in a few hours bv the i��-  moval of the nsnhnlt. i'he nif.it inn of  the courts leave a clear and exactlv  measured ranee to the forts of Namur  which were smashed in two days.  At Maubeuee similar plans wer*  made, Some forest land five miles  awav was sold two vears ago far  building nurnoses. A firm now believed to have been a?entn of the Ktir"^  built a so-called ennine factory for  whioh a space covered with n cleen  foyer of concrete and ������ ���-������������M with  rails seemed ' a natural concomitant.  The Germans used this in the seme  wav.

To Save Money and to make the Kiddies Happy  GO TO  Alsgard's  The Confectionery  The Motor Truck Id  Modem Warfare  A subsidy may be secured for almost  anything, if it has a rjrobible military use. From ship subsidies, the  powers went to subsidizing motorcycles  and motor trucks. The tftema, :who  are the true Yankees of Europe started the game and the other groat powers quickly fell in line. Tho Germans  however, have worked out tho best  system: it is based not only on their  own experience, but   on    'hat of   the  Americans aro specialists in athletics, business, and tyoes of invention  having chiefly to do with business. The  Germans, on the other hand, are specialists in war and Patriotism. It is  possibly na>t so much Aroerionn enterprise and ncumen that imakes them  leaders in business as the fact that so  much of the energy of Europe has been  devoted to preparation for war. The  way the Germans have seized the trade  in South Africa is merely an indication of what they miarht da if thero  should eventually be a "onerul disarmament.  There are a number of standard designs for motor trucks that have been  most rigorously tested and approved  by the German war office. For some  time past any citizen in the Empire  who intended to purchase one of these  motor truoks notified the Government.  Experts were sent to.givo the oar a  thorough trial to make certain that it  was in no wise defective. If it passed  the test in every respect, tho purchaser  of the machine was arlven one thousand  dollars as a bounty, or sibsidy. with  which to make his first Davment. At  the end of the second year he was to  receive two hundred .and fifty dollars  more, and a like sum at the end of the  three successive vears, so that at the  termination of five years he would  have received in all two thousand dollars. Theso annual instalments were  voted for the purpose of assisting the  owner in the upkeo ��� of the oar. At the  end of the five veers the car is supprs  ed to be no longer valuable.  Tn return for this subsidy the motortruck or tho owner is instantly at the  servico of the government in cases of  war. Moreover, tho owner must follow without deviation a set of exact  rulos laid down for his guidance. These  rales cover such Points as the use and  care of the truck, the permission of  official examination of the machinery  at any time, a detailed rennrt every  three months of the actual work done  by the car, the loads it has carried,  the roads traveled, the renairs mado,  the kind of fuel used. There is also  a reliability tour twice annually. If  the car fails to measure un to the requirements, the subsidv st ortrp ,.-j.j.-  Austria, France, Russia and Poland  have similar systems.  Of oourse, manufacturers of motorcars, have as a rule, bhuwu tutmselves  keenly interested in meeting governmental requirements. It is essential  that all the parts be standardized, so  that the ohauueur who has been running one make of machine may, it  necessary,' instantly he transferred to  another. It must be "nssible to use  gasoline, benzine, alcohol or benzol  without chnngo of carbureter. A trailer must be drawn behind . When  therefore, the requirements have been  satistied, the maker finds himself producing an outfit woi-rhino auout ten  tons, oapabie of carrying an additional load of six and one-half tons. The  rules require that a oar so loaded must  be able to negotiate tourteen per cent,  grades, and make b< speed of ten miles  an Hour on level ground. Aot tuily satisfied with this, however, the military  ouicials demand that in case of emergency, suck an a*.|aaaj,aiiont be aole to  take aver an additional trailer with  a four-thousand pound load. Indirectly, then, Europe's preparedness for  war has brought ubout greater efficiency in the building of cuinmercial motor truoks.  The Frenoh, who have faith, apparently in lighter machines, offend a  subsidy for truoks carrying three tons.  Under their system, at the time tbt  purchase it made, the government advances tht sum of five hundred and  twenty dollars, allowing, for- a period  of four years, two hundred and forty  dollars annually for the unkeep of tbt  car. The Frenoh official estimate for  tht life oi a ear, it will be noticed,  it plaoed at but four vears. Tht French  evidently never intended to be trapped  unprepared the wav theyjvere in 1870  io their war' against Prussia. After  the outbreak of that war it waa  brought home to them that sheer graft  and corruption had rendered the equipment of the army hopelessl<- inoflioiont.  Therefore, previous to the outbreak of  the pretent war, whenever a'manufacturer of motor trucks tntorod one of  his machines in a government contest  he had to give notioe in advance, and  the officials visited his faotory and  selected tha various Part! to go into  the particular car .stamping eaoh one  with the government stair- thut preventing any but - stock nattern  machine to be entered.  Tht reason, of course, that the military powers have not bought the oars  outright, is because of the very large  initial oapital that would j be required  for the purpose. ���  The British war department has  teen fit to place the subsidy life period  for any one vehicle at but three years.  Purchasers of machines on the list obtained five hundred and fifty dollars in  all; one hundred and fifty dolian* of  thit wat paid at the time of tht purchase of the truck, the remainder in  six half-yearly instalments. The official trials reauired a run of at least  fifteen hundred miles over very difficult roads. PraotioaUy any tvne of  body whioh permits of end loading c|��n  be fitted to the ohatit.  All these subsidized cars, which cian  be oalled out by the war office oijly  in cote of national emergency, are n ow  in service.  From the English the motor truiek  has not received tht serious oonsldeira-  tion that, it hgs reoeived in Germaniv.  where frequent and rigid tests alt  made.   However, by the (set that tfct  English put the practical life of tht  oar two years under the German te-  ���quirements, that is, three yean instead of five, the ~>H'��1 deficiency  that may result from laok o' tests may  thus be made up. In England less  than a dozen makers are on the aooepted official list of motor tracks.  This is in part due to the fact that  the British manufacturers are very  reluctant to change to a simplified  standard form; for instance one concern ubos the metric system in measuring the threads of its bolts and nuts.  Imagine the problem for the ordinary  mechanician under such circumstance! I  Yet in spite of this, ie it estimated  that the manufacturers of the prescribed types of cars could .turn out eighty  cars per week, conforming to the specifications, i  By way of contrast, it may be  stated that in one official test in  France seventy different makes of oars  were entered. '  The British war offioe divides the  motor trucks into two classes: Class  A. to carry nine thousand pounds:  Class B, to carry five hundred. A  speed of not less than twelve miles  an hour must be maintained, and even  through hilly country a rate of... ten  miles an hour is expected. A. motor  t rack must be able to make a nonstop  run of two hundred miles.  Amain? the decided advantagei of a  motor truck in war, are only those  of speed and enormous oarrying oa-  pticitv, but that gained bv the doing  awav with the foraare required for  mules or horses, and tht securing of  incrensed compactness for an army  a-orps. A tvnioal German army corps  a>xtenals on the maroh a distance of  nver fifteen miles. Followinar this oome  the commissary with five thousand  horses, as manv men, and twelve hun-  alred wagons. They march in column,  fifteen to eightoen miles long. One-  eighth as manv trucks as wn/rniag.  one-half as many men, oould do the  work.  As showing what might lit done in  actual warfare, during French manoeuvre! iust previous to 11 e outbreak of  the present confliot, hords of oattle  were placed behind the troons all tne  wav from thirty to forty miles behind the actual firing line. To have  fresh meat brnuadit to these soldiers  by the old-faBhioned method was im-  aiossihle, but motor tracks were able  to brin<�� it each mornin".���Teohnioal  World Magazine.  What the White Flag Means  For an officer or soldier to display  a white flag or other token of surrender in the presence of the enemy is  a disgrace equivalent to showing tbe  white feather; and the King's regulations make it unmistakably clear that  the offender will be tried by iteneral  court martial. The surrender, by an  ollioor charged witb its defence, of any  garrison, post, guard, or position,  whether fortified or not which even a  detachment may be ordered to ho.ta  can only be justified by the' utmost  necessity. Unless thit necessity bt  dearly ahown, the surrender becomes  an aot of shame and disgrace, punishable by death; or if the evidence it insufficient to support suoh a charge, the  offender if an offioer, 'it liable to bt  cashiered, of if a soldier to suffer  imprisonment.  What required to be dearly understood, says a writer in "The Globe",  is that the hoisting of a .vhite flag  meant, in itself, nothing dse than that  the ono party iB asking whether it  will receive a communication from the  other. In praotice, however, the white  flag, in consequence of being improperly hoisted in the oourse of an aotion  bv individual tolditrs or small parties  has oome in indicate surrender.  The white flag it the universally understood flag of truce, and no more.  Since time immemorial it hat been  used at a signal by an armed fcroe  that it it anxious to communicate  with the enemy; and thit it tht only  significance that it can be taid to possess a in International Law. Great vigilance it alwayt necessary, for the  question in every case it whether the  hoisting of the white flag was authorized by ths senior offioer. In oonse-  quonoe, when tho flag is hoisted tho  enemy need not necessarily cease fire,  though it is absolutely incumbent on  the party whioh hoists tht Hag to dp  to.

Gleanings of War News  It ia estimated that ii the war lasts  onlv six months it will cost the seven  European belliirerents ��3,200,000,000.

The German troops in Flanders, like  the Belgians, are suffering Irom a typhoid fever epidemic, acoording to  Dutch correspondents ol London news-  oarers. They say the disease is particularly prevalent along tbe Yter, owing to' insanitarv conditions there, end  there are man- oases among tho naval  forces at Courtrai.  .  .  .

Formal announcement that Prince  Bernard von Buelow, former chauoellor  of the German Empire, has been plaoed at the head ol the German embassy  at Rome, while the pretent ambassador, llerr von Flotow, is to be absent three months on aecount of his  health, has aroused much interesting  comment in Home. (Although the  move has been reported for some time  it mav be said to have produced a  considerable sensation. It is consiaer-  ' ed remarkable that a former' ohancel-  ' lor should become the head of an embassy, which ia by no means tne most  important in the German diplomatic  servioe.  Field Marshal Sir John French, in a  despatch covering the report of General Archibald Paris, who commanded  the British naval brigade at Antwerp  gives further testimony to the good  effect the sending of that force to the  assistance of the Belgians had on the  Allies' campaign generally, and thut  further supports the action of Winston  Spencer Churchill, first lord of the admiralty, who has been criticized for  sending it.  ...

Therefore be it resolved that the  government of the Dominion of Canada be, and is hereby petitioned to  amend the parcel post BVstem: First  by granting a special rate on iruit  during shipping seaBon to cover at  least three provinces outside that in  whioh the fruit is grown. Second by  increasing the weight of the parcel to  at least 25 pounds.   I  BltEA KWATEH, FOK PENTICTON  7.���Moved by Mr. Folcy-lloramaiu:  Whereas the town of Penticton is  tituated at the southern extremity ol  the Okanagan Lake, and is open to the  full sweep of the north winds; and  whereas in the paBt launches and sailing boats have frequently been wusbed  ashore and badly damaged, or sunk  at thoir moorings through laok of  shelter; and whereas it is desirable  that some place ol shelter should be  provided for tailing boats and other  tmall craft ooming from different Lake  points, whero they can anchor in sufo-  ty and land their passengers and cargo.  Therefore ba it resolved that we the  Associated Boards of Trade ol the  Okanogan Valley earnestlv petition tbo  Dominion government to oonstruot a  breakwater and landing plaoe at some  convenient point for the nurimse of  landing and mooring small craft.  SHADE TREES ON PUBLIC  ROADS  3.���Whereas the; nlantingl ot ornament  al and shade treat on public roads uud  streets, particularly in irrigated districts is muoh to be desired.

TO CONTROL LEVEL OK TUB  OKANAGAN LAKE  tf.-Moved   by   Mr.     Folev-Hi  seconded by Mr. Dynes:  Whereas at pretent large tracts of  agricultural land and hay meadows  are rendered worthless by the annual  rise in tho level of the Okana"an l.a'c  these lands being situated chiefly at  Okanagan Landing, Kolownu and Pentioton; and whereas navigation on tha  Okanagan River between Okanagan  Lake and Skaha or Dog Lako is lrn-  dered dangerous and difficult fur all  but small launches, owing to the swift  current, sharp bends, and uncertain  depths of the river; and whereas it is  very desirable that these valuable ug-  cultural lands should be insured  against submersion durin- high waiter  and also that a better and safer sya-  toin of navigation between tho two  lakes should be established, thereby  the ever increasing amount aaf farm  produce from the southern -'tkanagun  valley can be safely and speedily transported to Pentioton for shipment by  rail.  Therefore be it resolved that we the  Associated Boards ol Trade ol the  Okanigan- Valley earnestly petition  tho provincial government to take the  neoemary steps toward ascertaining,  (1) The cost of installation oKworkt  by meant of whioh the Oltrnianin Lake  may bt held at Ht low-water level;  that the navigation of the Okana-  River bt made pottible and safe at all  season! af the year for vessels up to  100 feet in lengtha,and 5 feet drauarht.

Mr. Williams says that the  experiments which have been made in  fox fanning by a company operating  at Telegraph Creek, in the Atlin district, give every indication that the  project will be placed (n a practical  basin.  Before foxes can be taken for breeding purimses it is necessary to obtain  a permit from tho provincial govern*  ment. and this year the Telegraptf  Creek company secured no lens than  113 foxes. There were twenty-three  black, fourteen Hilver, fifty dark cross,  twenty-two light cross and five red  foxes. The animals are valued at approximately 818.435. Th-s showing for  one reason's work is excellent, in the  iudn-mt-.it of Mr. Williams, and tug*  "���ests that the Fame decree of success in this new and unique industry  may be achieved in this ��rovince as  haB characterized operations in the  Maritime provinces,  Mr. Williams' report Mso contains  the grntifvino- announcement thut the  new system of licensing Indian guides  who are employed by big crame hunt  ers, as provided for in the amended1  game act of the last session oi the  legislature "is working excellently.1  'there-are now no complaints oi the  conduct of the guides, the Indians all  being disposed to co-operate with the  government in carrying out the spirit  of the legislation. j  A big increase in the herds of ei-ri-j  bou is noted this year in the report1  of tho chief game warden, J\ Kj  Burnham, of New York, * big game1  hunter, who spent some time in the'  Atlin country, saw no less than 23  head. This is the best record by a  single hunter for a number of years  and indicates that one of the pi ime  usseta of the province in the mutter  of providing sport for the famo'is big  game hunters of the world, shows no  (liminishment.
