Sutherland presided at last Jfn-  day's Council mooting, Aid. Copeland,  Calder. Cosens, Taylor, and 'Xhump-  sou being also preaent.  The    secretary   ol   the   Bureau   of  < X'rovinoial Information wrote asking  for information on current events,  likely to be of interest to the business  community of London. This matter  was referred to tbe Board t>f Trade  for reply.  Mr. B. G. Mqyriok naked, ou behalf'  af the Boy Scouts, lor permission  to  1 carry out their exercises and course of  I instruction in the Park. This was  granted on the recommendation of the  , chairman of the Park committee. Aid.  t Thompson.  A communication waa reud from Mr.  | J. Herdsman, of Okanagan Centre, in I  which    an offer was made to deposit I  $200 cash for the purchase of the old  lire    engine.      On   behalf of the Fire  , Protection committeo, AW. Cosens re-1  ported that the Fire Brigade and several oitizenB were averse to parting  with the old engine as it had come to  be looked upon ub a relic, and was  purchased by public subscription. The  clerk was therefore instructed to inform the Brigade of the oiler, and ask  their opinion.  An important letter was read from  sprinkling, whereupon he was requested to submit reconunendations in this  connection to the next council meet-  The clerk was instructed not to  tax in question ior the  month of April.  air. Lucus requested the council tu  teuonsmer their decision not to puss  plans of suo-divisious alio,ving less  than the lull width of streets, ue  I suggested that the full width of uuy  street! couiu bu assured by the owners  ol adjacent piopuity, giting thu Uity  a written guaruutee to give the Inn  unco of the street wheu auu-di\iOing  iheu'property.  Ala. Sutherland, however, pointed  out that the aujucent piopi-ity might  never ne sub-divided, iu which case  the City would have to purchase llio  ium.1 required to complete the street.  He further stated that if owners ot  property adjoining a sub-division were  willing to give the necessary land ior  the continuation ol' streets, they  would raise no onjection to such land  being included in any sub-division us  u street, aud signing the plan, which  would dispose of the question; whereas if Mr. 1-uoas' suggestion were adopted it would be necessary for the City  to secure deeds to portions of land  not included in the plans, and to  register sunie, otherwise the property  adjoining the sub-division might be  sold, and the purchaser might repudiate the agreement between the City  and the former owner; then the City  would huve to purchase the balance  ofthe street.  The council declined to accede to the  suggestion made by Mr. Lucas.  Aid. Sutherland reported that the  Sity assessor had asked to be provided with a map of the Xveiowuu School  Central Selling  Organization  Meeting Endorse Project and  Elects Delegate  the Superintendent of Provincial Poiiee District;     Uie olerk was therefore   in  uouiyiug tho city that alter duno Xsi.  the buildings hit nor to  shared   by the  local police would be required ior the  exclusive use oi ths Provincial Police.  Aid.    Sutherland    stated   that    the  Mayor was taking the matter up with  ^ the provincial authorities with a view  to obtaining permission ior tlie   City  police to ruuiuiu for a lurther period.  Messrs.

He added that the Bank of  Montreal had advanced over one hundred thousand dollars upon the City's  notes, and hed now refused to make  any further advances against these  debentures. The uot ion ol the Finance  committee was approved upon motion  of Aid. Cosens and Thompson.  Aid.

According to Col. Goethals, chief en.  gineer in charge, the Panama canal will  be ready for navigation by May, 1914.  About 10,000,000 cubic yards of earth in  the Culebra Cut remain to be excavated,  but the wark in the " slide " district is io  well advanced that another twelve months  will probably bring its completion.  The question of a Central Selling  Agency as a solution of the difficulties  of marketing fruit and produce,   and  'of securing to the farmer tho bestre-  j 'urn    for    the output af his orchard,  ireceived unmistakable,endorsation at  the   large guthering which assembled  I last Salurday to hear Mr. W.E.Scott,  (deputy    minister    of agriculture, und  | Mr. K. Robertson, the expert commie-  I'ioned by the provincial government to  .lay before the growers iu the Valley  ,un outline of the scheme.  j Tho meeting was held under the auspices of the Farmers' Institute, and  the president of lhat body, Mr. J. E.  Reekie,  occupied the chair.  j Deputy Minister Scott wus the tirsL  tu address the meeting, prefacing his  remarks with expressions of pleasure  and surprise at the wonderful growth  and progress of the eily and dis'rict,  and the nuinl>erB of fine buildings  whiohwere being erected. There was  au air of prosperity,he said,al-out th  place which gave promise of a great  future.  I Coming to the object of his visit to  Krlowna, ho asked his hearers to bear  in mind that anything he paid was  merely his own opinion, and not in  any sense official or obligatory, aud  although     there    would no douqt    bo  | criticism, he could at .east be credited  I with   sincerity   and an earnest desire  .to help the fruit industry.  | There was no use blinking the fact  thnt last year had been most unsatisfactory to fruit and vegetable growers  {and    there   must   be a reason for it.  /Phe chief reason, ho thought, and he  hoped they would excuse him for saying it, was lack of business methods  auunigijt th*. growers themselves.  Another    reason   was    the cut-throat  ! competition amongst the different  shipping organizations in the Valley,  which had resulted in a lowering of  prices. He instanced the case of a  jobber in Calgary who had been quoted a certain price by one concern, and  had   been   quite   prepared    to    buy.  .Others, however, had come along and  run the price down amongst them to  a ridiculous figure. Such a course  meant absolute disorganization.  J   The enormous crop of last year had  ,taken everyone by surprises There  had not been such a strange state of  affairs for the last 60 years. Every  apple country in the world had about  doubled its production, and in Eastern Canada the output was trebled.  No    preparation   had    been made to  ' meet theso conditions. The American  growers had attempted to hold eastern  buyers to the former prices, but on  realizing suddenly that this was impossible, had commenced lo cut the  prices, with disastrous results.  I Yet, Baid Mr. Scott, there was absolutely no overproduction of app,es at  the present time. Figures from the  United States blue books showed that  there were 25 per cent, less bearing  trees than ten years ago. It was  also a remarkable faot that only 25  por cent, oi trees planted ever came to  commercial bearing. The population  of the United States and Canada had  increased enormously during the past  ten yeare, nnd the consumption of  apples must have inoteased in proportion.   There was no over production.  [ Very little had been done as yet to  extend the markets, and little in the  way of adpertising the fruit. As ao  instance of what could be done by advertising, he said the proprietors of  "Force" had spent over a million dollars on advertising before a package  of thc foe i was placed on the market.  But they had made it sell, and the  Okanagan could do tho (ame with its  fruit.  | Greater economy would have to bo  exercised in growing the fruit, and  also in handling and marketing. Tho  first waB in the hands of tho grcwers  themselves individually, by adopting  the very best modern mothotln and  labor    saving devices.     Economy    in  'handling could be achieved by cooperation between local organizations.  A central selling agenoy for (he  wholo Valley would result in economy  in marketing. The exponse ol tole-  grams and office staffs, whioh were  multipl.ed eight or nine times bt present would be reduced to a minimum.  Speaking of the jobber, he said   he  qWlV   CWA1   SUIB   p.OJlU LUI   jUUAi   A1��1US|  uted to him. He did not think they  could eliminate him, - nor was it desirable, but he believed they control him  by united action. '. Jobbers had all the  muohinery for selling produce. If the  growers had to put this in themselves  zke cost would be enormous.  The hard knock which the growers  had got laet year was no cause for  discouragement. The fruit industry  ol the Okanagan was going to oome  out on wo, and pahtly through these  very reverses. Their troubles were a  good thing in a way because they  would bring out united action to overcome them.  So far as quality of fruit was concerned they hnd nothing to fear from  any part of the world. He had been  particularly struok with this at the  rooeut Chicago exhibition, where B.C.  fruit had beaten al) in sight.  Our orchards, howover, were \iot yet  producing on a profitable commercial  scale, No doubt, too, growers had  been led to expect a little too much  from their orchards. The industry  must stand upon its own merits.  Coming to the real question of the  meeting, Mr. Scott said that the basic  principle of cooperation could not be  gainsaid. United action almost always meant success where individual  action would fail. How could they  hold their own unless they got together? Industries were organized all  over the world, and they would have  to do the same. Farmers at the present time had hold of the wrong end of  the slick, but by gradually coming together they would got hold of tin*  right end. New Zealand had l>een  brought from chaos to he one of the  most prosperous countries in tho  world by cooperation. g  Farmers welo not business men, and  they should confine their attention to  producing the fruit at the lowest possible  cost. Marketing was a different business  and required trained brains and experience. If farmers tried to market their own  produce they would fail.  ..The.new method of having a cer.tral  organization for the selling end was going  to start a new era. It spelt prosperity for  the grower, and all who stayed out would  only make it so much less effective.  He had received assurance from the  C.P.R. of every assistance to bring about  a better state of things.  The provincial government would not  attempt to dictate what should be done.  They had simply at the request of a large  number sent a man versed in the mntter  to make suggestions. The solution of the  problem muat remain with the farmers  themselves.  The plan briefly was thia : The fruit  growers would form local organizations  absolutely controlled by the growers  themselves, one in each district. From  these organizations would be appointed  the best man to form a Central Selling  Organization. The growers would then  }i�� tied up by hard and fast contracts to  sell their fruit through this agency.  Mr. Scott suggested that the present  meeting pass a resolution appointing a delegate to a meeting at some point in the  Okanagan, probably next Wednesday,  which would draft a constitution and by-  lawa. When this was done he hoped there  would be no delay shilly-shallying over  trifles, ao that the agency could get to work  the present year. No doubt there would  be many imperfections at fust but these  could be altered next year.  As to finances, said Mr. Scott, the government by a far.rsaching act pissed recently, had agreed to advance 80 per cent,  of the share capital to any organization for  the advancement of agriculture. There  were certain conditions attaching to thi  loan and the government must be assured  of a reasonable prospect of success.  There would be great difficulties in the  way, no doubt, concluded Mr. Scott, but  nothing worth while war to be had without trying. They had however got to the  parting of the ways in the fruit industry  and if they chose the right way prosperity  would follow. He urged his hearers to  sink all local jealousies and endeavor to  think of the Okanagan aa a whole. There  was great satisfaction in striving to overcome obstacles. He was a believer in optimism, and he felt that optimism was going to make B. C. the finest province in  Canada.  Mr. Scott was loudly applauded at the  conclusion of his interesting address.  Mr. Robertson was next called upon to  speak. He had some complimentary remarks to make upon the aspect of the  district, and although he had noticed that  there was considerable discouragement  amongst tho growers he did not think it  bad enough by any means to cause defeat.  He had.prepared some valuable data on  the co-operative selling plan in other districts. Novo Scotia had gone through similar experiences to the Okanagan with the  result that they had organized a United  Fruit Co., which had already accomplished  a great work amongst the fruit growers.  The Norfolk Association and the Saskatchewan  Elevator   Association were also  dealt with as instances of what could be  accomplished by union of interests. An  association at Puello, Wash., had made a  great success of shipping soft fruit, and  figured that by getting together they had  saved $50,000 for distribution amongst  700 members. The Yakima Valley Fruit  Growers' Association had taken the place  of 13 associations working against each  other, and laat year in spite of the low  price came out $1500 to the good. They  had, moreover, saved on contracts for sup.  plies mora than paid for the selling of all  their apples.  Sneaking of jobbers and retailers he  aaid the industry could not do without  them. They had the selling forces and  the facilities for reaching the consumer.  But by proper organization the growers  could get their co-operation and link up  their selling forces to work for them.  A central agency would trend to improve the grade of apples by causing competition between the districts. Such an organization would also have a better chance  of improving transportation service than  individuals. If the schemecould be worked  out in other places he thought that in B.C.  they could do the same, if not a little better. The Okanagan is preeminently fitted  to produce the finest fruit and to say that we  could not make a success of selling it is to  tell us that we do not know our business.  Armstrong, Enderby, Vernon and other  places had expressed their willingness to  try and he had no doubt Kelowna would  do the same.  At the conclusion of Mr. Robertson's  address the chairman invited questions  from those present.  In reply to a question from Dr. Jones,  Mr. Robertson said it had been thought  advisable at first to draw up a plan in detail with constitution and by-lawa to lay  before the valley. After consideration,  however, it had been decided to confine  themselves to general principles and see  if the people really wanted it. They could  then get delegates together to arrange details.  Several questions were asked as to details af the working of the central agency,  but those could only be answered in a  general way until the meeting of delegates  had discussed the suggested constitution  and by-laws. A special meeting, it was  announced would then be called and the  proposals laid before the individual grower  for their approval.  It was the intention to see that the  agency was organized on strictly legal lines  so ns to be able to enforce its contracts.  It would take over all the functions of  selling fruit, leaving the local associationa  to keep in touch with growers, and to  pack and grade the fruit, ect.  Dr. Jones was the principle critic of the  scheme. He favored more gradual development, and doubted if an agency embracing the whole valley could be made  to work. He suggested as an alternative  that two, perhaps three, such agencies be  established with a view to some day being  amalgamated if thought advisable. The  suggestion, however, was not supported  and on a motion being put that the meeting endorsing the proposal of a Central Sel-  lingAgency it was carried without a single  dissenting voice.  The question of appointing a delegate  to attend a convention which would formulate with the assistance of Mr. Robertson  and Mr. Scott a code of by-laws and regulations was then taken up, and Mr. J. E.  Reekie elected.  Mr. Reekie left yesterday for Vernon  where the meeting ia to be held. The re  suit of their deliberations will be made  known in the course of a few daya when  a general meeting will be called and their  proposals discussed.  Reduced Express Rates  A judgment that will bo oi immense  importance to British Columbia, and  indeed to the whole oi Western Canada was given by th* Bailway Commission last week, whioh will reduoe  express obarges in the west by 20 per  cent. The sew schedule ol rates will  come into ioroe on duly loth of this  year. Tho eastern rates wet* not al-  leoted by the decision, but,the Board  was satisfied that the west had car-  nod more than it* lair share oi the  express rates.  The decision is the firat important  one prepared by Chairman H. L.  Drayton, and there was not one dissenting voioe.  'in my view," says the flhqirnrnn in  his decision, "the express rates charged by the defendant companies in the  prairie provinces and in Britiah Columbia are unreasonable. Reductions  which have boon made to tho levelling  very many, as shown by the compenys'  tariffs, ere praotically recraotions which  only little affeot the manner in which  the bulk of the tariff is moving or are  perhaps compensated by additions  which have been made, and they are  process in establishing a mileage basis  of standard rates as provided by the  judgment. 1 am oi opinion that an  approximately average reduction of 20  per cent, should be made by the companies in tho standard maximum tariff  for traffic classified as merchandise to  apply only to the prairie provinoes  and to British Columbia,"  The decision also provides that there  shall be a similar reduction in special  rates.  It is believed that the British Columbia reduction will be particularly  valuable to the fruit industry of the  coast province, as it will give them  far lower express rates to the prairie  provinoes.  Rutland News  (From our own correspondent)  " For ways that are dark, and tricks that  are leary, the heathen chinee is peculiar."  Mr. Jack Hall realizea this truth, he contracted with a celestial to work hia land  for two years, paying, a lawyer to draw up  the contract, and when the land is ready  for planting the " party of the second part "  skips out leaving " the party of the first  part" in the lurch. Jack is now told that  nothing can be done. What is the use of  a contract anyway if it doesn't bind both  parties 1 ?  There is a treat in store for those fortunate enough to attend the entertainment  being arranged by the Ladies' Aid of the  Methodist Church on Thurscay May 8th.  From inside information we are prepared  to guarantee a most amusing evening. It  will consist of a typical illustration of an  old-time meeting of the " Aid " and will  give to the masculine mind an idea of the  immense amount of business (?) transacted  at these meetings, and show how the  weighty matters (?) are discusbed, and also  prove that the charges of the "Aid " being  but a " School of Scandal " and a gossip  club are both false and unfounded. The  dresses and arrangement of hair will be  quaint, to say the least, and will show  what fri��� no, no, how charming these  ladies can make themselves by their  artistic costumes. As the-proceedings are  for the Parsonage Fund I come prepared  with your fifty cents and bring the children at two bits per. We understand that  two ladies from Boston will be present to  assist the local members.  A meeting is called for tomorrow, Friday, night in C. A. Fisher's office for the  purpose of making arrangements for a  programme of athletic sports, races, etc.,  for the 24th of May. All interested are  asked so attend in order to make the affair  a success. Captains of baseball, lacrosse,  and other clubs should be there.

Kelowna Attracts  Kamloops Investors  That considerable confidence in  Kelowna's future has established  itself in the minds of the people  of Kamloops is indicated by the  opening of a blanch in this city bv  the firm of Evander McLeod, a  well-known real estate agency of  Kamloops. We understand that  this firm are conducting a tremendous advertising campaign in the  Kamloops district to make known  all the advantages of Kelowna,  and have opened up in this city  for the convenience of their Kamloops clients, a large number of  whom are coming to Kelowna to  purchase homesitee and make investments. This firm's Kelowna  office is to be under the management of W. F. Rjvcn.n, who has  been engaged in the realty business  at Kamloops, and who is therefore  familiar with the circumstances  that have conduced to the enormous raise of land values that has  resulted in Kamloops during the  past two years.  It is of interest to take note of  the first impressions formed by  strangers who come to our city,  and especially by those whose  business demands that they closely  investigate conditions. In a conversation we have had with W. F.  Ravenor, he expressed an unbounded astonishment al the tremendous development that has resulted in Kelowna during the past  three years. He says that the  books and pamphlets published on  Kelowna are too moderate in expression to give outside people an  accurate impression of the enormous agricultural development  proceeding, and of the great commercial activity of the city, more  especially as people in the west  are accustomed to make allowances for the exaggeration usual  in all publications issued by Boards  of Trade and railway companies.  He considers that it is almost  without precedent for a city to  attain such a degree of progress  and build up such a large population without the aid of proper railway facilities, and he asserls that  what Kelowna has already done  without the aid of railway facilities  is in itself a sure prediction of the  great destiny awaiting the city  when the railway comes in and  when the thousands of acres now  under development have yielded  the first of their bounteous harvests,  ln making comparisons between  ihis citv and Kamloops he points  out that Kamloops has built up a  population of over 5,000 people  and that the only important source  of revenue to that city is the pay  roll of the C.P.R. amounting to  $40,000 per month and the tern,  porary revenue from the construction camps of the C.N.R., and  observes that the agricultural environment of Kamloops is as nothing when compared to the wealth  of nature's riches surrounding  Kelowna.  He alao expresses astonishment  at the dignified appearance of our  city and says Kamloops cannot  boast such a continuance ot substantial buildings and comparatively magnificent shops as are to  be seen on Bernard avenue.  After discussing the possibilities  of Kelowna with a number of  citizens he has formed the opinion  that the people of Kelowna have  far too modest an estimate of the  future of the city, which he thinks  will undoubtedly become the largest city in the valley and far and  away ahead of the neighbouring  towns and probably the largest  city in the interior of B.C.  He expresses surprise at what he  describes as the moral tribute paid  to Vernon by the people of Kelowna, and says that as the importance of a city is to be judged by  its future possibilities rather than  by any momentary advantage, that  therefore Kelowna hns no need to  regard Vernon as a sort of superior  sister, and points out that Vernon,  in spite of the help of the railway,  has made very little progress as  compared to Kelowna, which has  forged ahead against tremendous  obstacles.  In remarking that the number of  telephone subscribers is a sure indication of a city's commercial  activity, he says that there are at  the moment only about two dozen  more subscribers in Vernon than  in Kelowna, and presuming these  figures are correct it is certainly a  sign very favorable to Kelowna.  He tells us that the installation of  cluster lights in Kamloops have  proven a splendid advertisement  for the city and says that if this  improvement is not financially possible for Kelowna at the moment,  it would serve to impress strangers  if a small start were made with  half a-dozen standards on Bernard  avenue.  As regards comparison between  Kamloops and Kelowna in respect  to real estate valueB, and taking  into consideration the difference  in population, he considers that  realty values for certain classes of  property in Kelownn are extremely low, and he predicts for these a  tremendous rise in value during  next few months. He says he has  already met quite a number of  Kelowna people who hnve lived  in the city from ten to twenty  years and who have never invested  in local real estate. He believes  that among the 5,000 population  there is not a single resident in  Kamloops possessing lhe means  who has not invested in Kamloops  real estate. Although he is in  Kelowna to secure listings of property for outside buyers yet he  considers it a pity if many of those  who have helped build up this  splendid city should allow the  outside investor to reap all the  advantages of the great rise in land  values that he predicts must result  druing the next few months to  bring values in harmony with the  development that has already taken  place.  He suggests that the cause preventing many Kelowna people  from investing in local real estate  is due to a slight excess of conservatism the prevalence of which is,  he says, at once noticeable to the  stranger, and he expressed the  opinion that while conservatism is  the very proper attribute of banks  and trust companies that too much  of it outside its proper sphere  tends to throttle enterprise and is  not in keeping with the progressive  spirit of the west. But he proceeded to admit that this same  quality of conservatism prepares  the best and most solid basis upon  which a city can be built up at a  quick rate as soon as its population  has become besprinkled with the  element of hustle, and in this respect he makes a favorable comparison to Victoria which had  much in common with Kelowna  and where the advent of the hustler has resulted in an extraordinary  rate of progress.  While we cannot necessarily  agree with all our interviewer's  remarks we think it is none th  less of interest to take note of tin  very favorable opinions strangers  almost invariably express to the  advantage of Kelowna, and it is  gratifying to know that Kelowna  Is proving attractive to outside investors.

CANADA'S FUTURE.  A   Britiah   Official'!   Tour   and   Hit  ^      Opinion.  Of line years 'he Colonial Office haa  adopted the excellent policy oi making their officials familiar with ths  Overseas Dominions at first hand.  Mr. H. W. Just, of tbC Dominions  branch of the Colonlr.l Office, and th*  permanent secretary of the Imperial  Conference, liru just returned to hia  official duties after a tour of eight!  weeks in Canada. "It wss not my  first experience of the Dominions,  said Mr. Just, "for Mr. Chamberlain  took me out with him on his tout in  South Africa. My recent journey in  Canada srose from thi Conference of  1007, when several members gave expression to the view that it would be  an aijvuntago if members of the Col-  onial Office, especially those in the  Dominions Department, had personal  acquaintance of I'u countries with  which they had business dealings. It  was with this idea in view that I  went to I'liniiiln, nnd I do not wish to  pose in any wsy bs an expert on  Canadian business affairs. I hava  been simply a traveler, taking a  traveler's nasty view. I landed at  Quebec from the Empress of Britain,  saw Montreal, stnyed for ft few days  nt the Government House at Ottawa,  and then went straight across to  Vancouver und British Columbia. On  my way back East I dropped off at  various places, such as the Okamuran  Valley, for the fruit farming, and the  Arrow Luke. Two days I spent at  Banff, ir place of great resort lot  Canadians in the summer. One great  attraction there is thc National Park,  where'herds of moose and a few of  the remaining buffaloes are kept.  Sir Wilfrid Laurier was tbere at the  time, nnd I hud u long conversation  with I.im. but the matter was entirely  confidential. ���  Cu min made a ijreat impression on  me. It is a land of immense possibilities which few of ub ln this  country arc able to realise without  nriiiolly visiting there. On every  hand I saw evidence that the Cana-  ilians were taking full advantage ot  the enormous possibilities of their  iniintry ill wheat growing, mining,  er fruit farming. But ,thc land as  ?nmpared with the people is out of  'ill proportion. Thj country is cry-  inn aloud for a larger populstion. and  a larger population it must have if  its development is to proceed on tho  fullest lines. This applies more par-  ���iculmly in Western Canada and  British Columbia. In those parts of  the country the skilled agricultural  laborer and the farmer are wanted,  men who have on expert knowledge  nf lanri and an' able to put it to good  use. Much of the land in favorable  situations, thut is, in near proximity  ���to the railway line, is taken up, but  us the railway system extends this  difficulty will lie met."  Mr. Just's attention was colled to  the recent Importation of Canadian  peaches into England. "This iH almost what I expected. They came  Irom Ontario, I believe, hut districts  further west, British Columbia, for  instance, are growing fine fruit. - Th*  Question is: How can you get fruit  from those for-oway places into the  English market!��� To the original cost  has to be added the cost of freight  over many thousands of miles of land  and sea. At the present time British  Columbia is supplying the country as  far east as Winnipeg with fruit, but  the British Columbians want to do  greater things and extend the sphere.  of their operations. In respect of  fruit the people of Winnipeg are  fortunately situated. A great deal of  the early fruit from California is sent  to that city, and later in the year  they reap the advantage of the British Columbian harvests." Mr. Just  said that his knowledge of the fisheries of British Columbia would not  allow him to pass judgment on ths  suggestion of Sir George Doughty,  MP., Ior introducing a race of white  fishermen on the coast. But he pointed out that the fishing industry ot  that province is largely in the hands  of the colored races. Railway development had interested him greatly,  especially the construction of tho  Hudson Bay Railway, the first sod of  which has already been cut.  She   Mistook   Him.  VV. C. Wilkinson, who for thirty-  six years has been secretary of Toronto's Board of Education, prides  himself on his youthful spirit und on  his activeness in getting about, in  spite of the fact that it was not yesterday that his linir turned grey. So,  it's with an appreciation of the incident being at his expense that he  tells of what happened to him in Ireland  a  couple  of years  ago.  Mr. Wilkinson wus one of a party  uf about sixty on a trip through the  Old Land. In a hotel at which they  stayed iu Killarney, the maid said  to him one morning, "And how did  your good wife sleep last nightf"  1 don't know," was ths answer.  "You dont know?" said thc maid,  "My wife is about three thousand  miles away." said Mr. Wilkinson.  The majd looked at him from head  to foot snd then said, "Oh, I beg  your pardon. I took you for another  litU* otnd  ruahn."  HwiMSteader at 102.  Thai it da never too late to work has  been proved by Mr. Louis Carpenter,  aged 108 years, who has applied to  the Saskatoon land office for a homestead.

The city park commissioners  have been at considerable trouble  during the laat week or two planting trees in various principal  streets, and it is surely not too  much to expect that the citizens  will help to protect the young  trees until they are big enough to  look after themselves. Quite a  number have already been damaged, some pulled up entirely,  presumably by small hoys. Boys  will be boys, it is true, but they  have no need to be savages. A  boy who is big enough to pull up  a tree is old enough to know that  it was put there for the public  benefit.  PROFESSIONAL AND  BUSINESS CARDS  Watch  bargains.-  P.

STOKER  KELOWNA  for further information  Boy Scout Notes  By "MAGISTEE."      *  One naturally meets with oritios oi  tho. Boy Scout movement who are  eager to object to various pointB m  i In- scheme,. I have met thorn in thia  "own: they take exception to lack of  religious training, or lack of drill, qr  tendency towards militarism, the  abuse of Stindtty, the absurdity of  plays, and of Scouts performing war-  dances, pow-woWB, etc  With regard to militarism, there is  military meaning attached to  Scouting. Peace soouting comprise*  the attributes of fron Mora men in the  way of reflourcefiilnniw and sell-  reliance, nnd many other qualities  which make Ihem men among men.  There is no idea of making the boys  into soldiers or tenoning them blood-  thirstinesH. At tho same time under  "patriotism" they are taught that a  citizen must be prepared to take his  fair share among his fellows in the  defence of tho homo-land against any  nggreNHion in return for tho safety  and freedom enjoyed by him as an inhabitant. He who shirks and leaves  this duty for others to do for him is  playing neither a plucky nor a fair  part.  Tho man who has wen war in a  civilized country never remains a so-  called nnti-militarist. He knows too  Well tho awful nnd cruel results of war  and until nations have agreed to disarm, he will not invite aggression or  leave his country ai the mercy of an  enemy by neglecting its defence. You  might just as well abolish the police  in order to do away with crime before  you have educated people notto steal.  Scoutmasters are frequently agitating for more drill in the movement,  but although the disciplinary value of  drill is recognized, yet the evils are  very clear.  Military drill gives a feeble unimaginative officer a something with to  occupy his boys. lie does not consider whether it appeals to them or  does them good���it saves him a world  of trouble.  Military drill tends to destroy individuality, whereas we aim in tho  Boy Scouts to develops individual  character. When once drill has been  learned it tires a boy who is longing  to be tearing about 'on somo enterprise or other. It blunts his keenness. Of boys drilled, in Cadet Corps,  iess than 10 per cent, go into the  army afterwards. Our aim is to  make young baokwoodsmeu of them,  not imitation soldiers.  As regards the attractiveness of  Scouting luring boys from joining the  Cadets, it is not found that it does  so; indeed inmany cases it is adopted by Cadet Corps for making their  instruction more attractive and more  practical, while its discipline of loyalty is of a more lasting Jond than the  mere veneer of mi;itary obedience to  orders.  Scheme to Improve Livestock  The Hon. Martin Burrell, with the  help of Mr. J. Bright, new live stock  commissioner, has worked out a plan  for the development of the live* stock  industry.  The department will undertake the  distribution of well-bred stallions,  bulls, rams, and boars. This will  solvo one of the great live stack problems, particularly in the newly settled  districts of Canada.  Tho original coBt of the animals will  be borne by tho department and they  will be placed in the handsof such  local organizations as agree to certain  conditions which will be set forth.  All animals distributed will be purchased if possible from homo breeders  txntl will bo Panadian bred.

While the cost of living has undoubtedly been  growing greater, at the same time it is true  there are some inventions that will offset this  increased cost of living, and the careful housewife takes advantage of these inventions.  On every Gurney-Oxford range there is an  Economizer which controls not only the drafts  but also the entire combustion or burning of  fuel to create  heat.  This Economizer will save 1 ton of coal in  every 6 that you would use with the ordinary range.  The Economizer is a simple device, absolute  in its control. By merely moving the lever you  can obtain any degree of even heat in the oven.  This insures the satisfaction of always having  light, delicately crusted bread and biscuits.  The kitchen fire ceases to be a worry if the  Economizer is on your stove.  The   Gurney - Oxford is  the   final result of  experimental   thought. Science has   given it  a Divided Flue, a   new Special  Grate,   and a  Broiler attachment.  This Gurney-Oxford range is primarily a  a saver of money, time, and energy.  D.
