Array VOL. IV.   NO. 31.  KELOWNA. BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, JUNE 27, 1912.  $1.50 Per Annum.  Meeting of  City Council  City Will Loan Sinking Fund  at 8 per cent.  There was a full attendance of  the council Monday morning.  The correspondence, which was  read firat, included a letter from  Messrs. Aemelius Jar/is and Co. in  reference to the purchase of city  debentures ; a letter from the Rev.  D. Campbell, of Enderby, thanking  the city for the use of the park for  their Sunday-school excursion, and  the mayor for the kind attention  and hospitality ahown them; from  the Hon. Martin Burrell, in reference to the lowering of the lake.  The following accounts were  handed to the finance committee  for payment:  Dominion Express Co. - - - 9.00  Joe Alexander, work on water ws. 17.15  Joe Smith, raising electric li't poles .83  C. Lancaster ditto - .83  J. Lindstrum ditto - .83  K. Smith ditto -        .83  B. C. Anti-Tuberculosis  Society,  care of N. Krumer '. - 21.00  Board of Worka paysheet, ending  June 22,1912-       -      -      - 1171.00  The C.P.R. submitted a blue  print map of their trackage to the  north of town, with some recent  additions to accomodate the new  cannery. The city was asked to  ratify the plant which had to be  aubmitted to the railway cjm-  misaionert.  Some question arose as to  whether the content ot property  owners concerned had been obtained for the extensions of the  tracks, and it waa thought advisable  to make tome inquhies on the  point. Dr. Boyce was summoned  by telephone and a consultation  held which elicited the information  that the lots had been .old cubject  to the right-of-way for the company's tracks.  A resolution was passed approving the plant.  A sub-division of plan of Blocks  44 and 45, Map 462, adjoining the  ���' exhibition grounds on the north  and belonging to the D. W. Crowley Co., wat submitted and passed.  A rough draft of a sub-division  of the Bertram corner, owned bv  Metsrt. Elliott and Copeland, was  handed in by Mr. Copeland.  Consideration was alto given to  the matter of lending the city's  accumulated sinking fund.  Mayor Jonet mentioned the city  had now power to loan the money  on approved firat mortgages and it  seemed advitable to take advantage of it. Before any atept could  be taken, however, the council  would have to appoint valuators.  Applications were already in for  three loans which appropriated  $10,000 of the $18,000 available.  The following resolution waa  passed: " That the city loan 75  per cent, of it's sinking fund on  first mortgages bearing interest at  the rate of 8 per cent, per annum.  Loans to be appraised, and passed  by the council."  Several suggestions were made  aa to the appointment of valuators,  and it was finally decided to leave  this in the handa of the finance  committee.  Aid. Copeland reported having  investigated the application of Mr.  H. G. Meugens for a crossing, and  had found that it wat a private  crossing into his own lot which  was asked for. It was the usual  cuttom for ownert to provide these  at their own expense.  Aid. Copeland also mentioned a  complaint which had been made  to him of water having backed up  over a street rendering some kind  of a temporary plank bridge necessary. He pointed out in this  connection that it would be advisable for the council, before passing  new subdivision plans, to go over  the ground and inapect the proposed streets. Many plans had been  put in lately with streets requiring  very extensive fills, and he thought  these should be put in by the own-  era, a suggestion which met with  general approval.  Mr. E. Newby waited on the  council to atk if any objection  would be raited to hit firm enlarging their boat-building premises.  More room waa necessary and they  contemplated putting up on the  tide nearest the shore a corrugated  iron building.  Mr. Newby wat informed that  no other formality would be need'  ed but the regular permit from the  building intpector.  Aid. Copeland had some remarks  to make on the street work of the  Board of Works. He said he  would like, if funds allowed, to put  in a little more work on Pendozi  street. They had done a good  deal of work there and it seemed  hard to have to break off at the  present point. There were other  other places, however, which needed attention.  Aid. Millie asked and received  three months leave of absence,  which he intended to spend on a  holiday for the benefit of his  health.  He also mentioned the jumping  net which had been requested by  the fire brigade, and hoped the  council would see its way to getting one, as it was very much  needed.  The committee were requested  to obtian prices and other information.  The fire committee also arranged  to go over the city with the fire  chief to ascertain where new hydrants were needed. Several requests had been made and these  were to be investigated.  Aid. Sutherland mentioned that  the Light Committee had placed  an order with the sawmill company  for 1000 cords of slabs as fuel for  the winter.  Aid. Blackwood stated that the  Parks Committee were cutting a  a sonsiderable amount of wood  from the clearing of the new recreation ground, and suggested that  the city make use of it at the power house.  Aid. Sutherland brought up the  question of the day load which was  now running at the power house.  He aaid that last year all kinds of  complaints had been made about  the city not having a day service.  People had raised a big howl about wanting to put in motors, but  so far none had been p.le in. The  new electric irons, heaters, etc.,  which were used had made no  appreciable difference to the light  bills.  Replying to a question he said  they had no intention of discontin-  ueing the service, but he thought  people should endeavor to take  more advantage of it.  The meeting then adjourned.  The council held a special meeting Wednesday to consider an  amendment to the subdivision plan  recently submitted by the Kelowna  Land StOrchard Co., and passed by  the council.  The reason for the amendment  was an objection from Mr. R. B.  Kerr, who informed the council  council that he was the owner of  property shown on the plan as subdivided into five lots. As he did  not wish to subdivide his property  at present he requested the council to amend the plan and show his  property all as one lot.  Mr. R. H. Parkinson said the K.  L. O. Co. did not learn of Mr.  Kerr's objection until the plan was  presented to him for signature. As  no plan of subdivision can be registered without the signatures of  the registered owners of the land  affected, the company were anxious  to comply with Mr. Kerr's request.  Aid. Blackwood asked Mr. Parkinson whether an agreement had  been made between the company  and Mr. G. F. Budden in feference  to some land in dispute and affected by the plan.  Mr. Parkinson said the company  was quite satisfied with its title and  intends to apply for registration of  the plan immediately. It waa probable that Mr. Budden would file an  objection with the Land Registrar  against the registration of the plan,  in spite of the fact that Mr. J. F.  Burne had convinced the chief  clerk to Mr. Mclntyre, (who was  acting for Mr. Budden in the matter) that the latter had no legal  right to the land.  A resolution was passed authorizing the amendment to the plan.  The induction of the new minister of the Presbyterian church, Rev.  A. Dunn, B. D��� will take place thi-  evening in the Church at eight  o'clock, The following ministers  are expected to take part in the  service : Rev. G. M. Milligan, D.D  of Toronto, Rev. R. J. Wilson, M.A  of Vancouver, Rev. C. O. Main,  B.D. of Vernon and Rev. Mr. Daly  of Summerland.  New Subdivision Has  Magnificent View  The unprecedented activity in  local real estate has brought many  fine sub-divisions on the market,  and none seems to promise better,  from a strictly residential point of  view, than that of " Lakeview " on  the hill to the east of town.  Messrs. Duggan and Davies have  acted together in securing 26$ acres  of land immediately adjoining the  Bankhead ranch, and on a gentle  rise from which is obtained an uninterrupted view of the city and  the stretch of lake beyond.  The property, contains some 110  lots, which are shortly to be placed  on the market by Messrs. Bevan,  Gore and Elliott, of Victoria, who  have undertaken its sale. This firm  is to conduct an extensive advertising campaign at the coast and  back eu.it, and incidentally Kelowna should get a good boost from  their efforts. The lots will no doubt  find a ready market owing to their  attractive situation, and their close  proximity to town, the main street,  Bernard avenue, running through  them sortie half-mile only from the  city. City water and electric light  is already to the edge of the property and the main streets are  already levelled and graded. The  price of the lots ranges from $250  to $600.  Mr. R. G. White, reptesenting  the selling agents, is expected here  during the next few days. .  Probable New C.P.R. Hotel  on Shuswap Lake  A large hotel, to be built at some  point on Shuswap lake, is stated to  be one of the items on the programme the C.P.R. intends to carry  into effect in the very near future.  Many sightseers prefer to travel  only in daylight through the mountains and as some of the most attractive scenery in the west is that  east of Kamloops, it is intended to  make the daylight run both east  and west,|terminate at a suitable  point west of Sicamous and east of  Kamloops, and it is understood a  location will be found on Shuswap  lake and Chase is named as the  possible location. Sicamous hotel  is too small for the purpose intended and it is stated that the new  hotel proposed will have accommodation for 300 guests.

Plans Selected for  New School  Lethbridge Architect Submits  Winning Designs  The Board of School Trustees  held a meeting Monday last at  8 p.m., when several important  matters were dealt with, chief  amongst which was the acceptance  of a plan for the new school building, that submitted by Mr. G. E.  Nobles, of Lethbridge, being selected from some seven or eight others.  The plan shows a handsomely-  designed school with ten rooms  and assembly hall.  Several changes in the teaching  staff at the conclusion of the present term were discussed and applications considered. Miss F. M.  Currie, who was formerly on the  staff but lately in Vancouver, was  appointed at a salary of $85 per  month. The resignation of Mrs.  K. A. Graham was accepted.  It was decided to offer Mr. C.  Fulton the position of first assistant  to the public school principal at a  salary of $90 per month. Mr. L. V  Roger's salary was increased by  $5 per month from July 1st.  The secretary was instructed to  advertise in the " Toronto Globe "  and " Vancouver Province" for  three teachers, two for the junior  grade and one for the intermediate  grade.

Mr. Reekie verv kindly placed his  lawn and automobile at the disposal  of the ladies and various friends  residing on the bench made generous gifts of fruits and cakes.  A musical programme which drew  much applause was rendered at  intervals by the following friends :  Mrs. Lindsay, Mrs. Rose, Mrs.  P. Brooke, Mrs. Dunn, Mrs. Shaw,  Mrs. Soames, Miss Crowcroft, Messrs. Soames, Tollitt, Wallace, and  Moodie, whilst a male quartette  was given by Messrs. Pedlar, Good,  Weeks and Wade.  The ladies wish to thank all the  friends who so readily helped to  make the occasion such a success.  The proceeds totalled about $60.  Mr. W. Gay, of Rutland, returned  Tuesday from the coast.  The Public School closing exercises take place to-morrow, commencing at 10 o'clock. Parents  and friends of the scholars are  invited.  Messrs. R. and B. Gardom, prominent Vancouver real estate men,  and Mrs. Gardom, sister to Mrs.  R. H. Parkinson, have been staying in town for the past few days  visiting friends.  Mr. J. L. Doyle has resigned his  position as customs officer. The  business of the office has increased  so rapidly during the few months  in which it has been established,  that Mr. Doyle found the work  becoming too heavy for him. Mr.  Albert Buyer,' who has acted for  some time as assistant, has been  appointed to fill the vacancy.  Mr. Jay W. Nelson, representing  the Sask-Alta Realty Company of  Calgary, Alta., is in the city selling  Moosejaw property. He has interested a number of the best people in town in his property and expects to do a very good business.  The property Mr. Nelson is selling  is in the direct line of growth of  Moosejaw, which in six months will  have a payroll of $1,000,000 per  month. As Mr. NeJson states the  property can be handled on very  easy terms and is a splendid buy  at present prices.  Government Grant to  Dominion Exhibition  The Dominion Government has  voted $50,000 for the purpose of  making the Central Canada Exhibition, Ottawa, September 5 th to 16  an event of national character.  The Dominion Exhibition has  now come to Ontario for the second time. It was held in New  Westminster, B. C. in 1905. Every  year it grows in importance. Hon.  Martin Burrell, minister of agriculture, who was the first to grant the  application of the Ottawa exhibition management for the national  grant is taking much interest in ihe  approaching event, and his co-operation is thoroughly appreciated.  One of his last acts was to instruct  the experimental farm to prepare  a suitable display from the government's chief agricultural station.  Chief amongst the improvements  adopted for the Dominion Exhibition is the increase of all cash prizes  by 50 per cent. A total of $25,000  will be paid out to live stock men,  farmers, fruit growers and other  competitors. Not only will the  money awards attract a monster  collection of entries but the business advantage of showing at this  big exhibition is appealing to all  interests. Manufacturers will fi|j  four acres of space in the pavilions.  To accomodate the large displays  a new $100,000 machinery hall has  been erected. More space is demanded for live stock, the number  of horse entries being estimated at  five hundred.  Railway companies enlarged the  territory over which low rates will  prevail, the area ncv being extended wejt to Port Arthur.  The Exhibiton Association pays  freight on all exhibits coming from  beyond a radius of 100 miles of  Ottawa. Any one of these shipments returning direct home will  be carried free by the railways.  In keeping with all other improvements, innovations have been  made in the amusement line.  There will be daily balloon ascen-  tions, fifty midway shows, scores  of vaudeville stars, chariot races,  horse races, famous bands including the Scots Guards of London,  Eng., military pageant and fireworks.  Indian Outrages  Alarm Nicola  Obituary  It is with the deepest regret that  we have to chronicle the death last  midnight of little Edylhe Robison,  daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George  Rohison, of Glenn Avenue. The  little girl, who was nearing her  tenth birthday, had been ill only  for about two weeks. At first it  was thought that her complaint  was measles but symptoms of  typhoid developed and in spite of  the utmost care and attention which  has been lavished on her. she  gradually grew worse, her heart  failing at the last to stand the  strain put upon il.  The sad occurrence has cast a  gloom upon her playmates in the  neighbourhood and at the school,  and the greatest sympathy will be  extended to the bereaved parents,  especially to Mrs. Robison to whom  little Edythe was beginning to be  a great help and comfort. She was  a bright, yet thoughtful child and  fond of school, one of her chief  regrets during her illness being  the lad that she was unable to take  pait in the examinations. She was  comforted, however, by the message that she had been passed  owing to the creditable nature of  her work during the past vear.  The funeral is to take place from  the house on Saturday at 2.30  After a brief illness. D. McCrae  passed away on Saturday last at  " The Garth," where he has been  stopping since coming to the city  from Vernon about three weeks  ago. The funeral took place on  Sunday afternoon, the service being  conducted by Rev. J. Ball.  Mr. A. Patterson and family desire to express their sincere thanks  for the kind sympathy extended  to them from all sides in their sad  i bereavement.  As the direct tesult of ihe tailure  to bring to punishment to Clinton  Indians who murdered a half-breed  and a constable, says a Merritt  despatch, Indians of the same tribe  have become restless and outrages  are becoming common.  On Sunday last Squamisken, one  of the best known hunters in the  Nicola, was murdered in his home  on the Springs rancherie. George  Toodlakin, an Indian twenty-four  years old, is in jail charged with  the murder, and his wife, whom he  also attacked, is in a dying condition.  On the same morning another  outrage occurred in the district.  As Joe Coutlie, foreman of the  Douglas Lake Cattle Company, was  starling from Merritt to eo home,  an Indian jumped up behind him  on his saddle, pinioned his aims  and stabbed him no less than ten  times. Eyewitnesses, when they  recovered from their surprise, went  to his rescue, but the Indian escaped. Coutlie was taken to the  hospital,  Thursday last, during a thunderstorm, Constable Smith was shot at  and latet Chief Strang arrested a  man who was boasting he would  get the constable next time. He  declared the policeu.an had shot  one of his friends at Ashcroft. It  took five men to place the Indian  in jail, and during the struggle  Chief Strang was bitten on ihe arm  and hand.

Winnipeg has been choien as  next year's place of meeting I y ihe  International Association of Real  Estate Dealers of America which  finished its convention Saturday at  l-Ouisville, Ky.  The fifteenth Republican national convention at the end of n long  and tumultuous session re-nominated William H. Taft, of Ohio, lor  president, and James S. Sherman,  of New York, for vice-president.  President Taft received 561 of ihe  1,078 voles in the convention, or  21 more than a majority. Furmer  President Roosevelt was nominated  for president on an independent  ticket.  Between 15 and 20 persons were  drowned, and a number injured  when a fifty-foot wharf at Eagle  Park Grand Island, Niagara river,  collapsed under the weight of 250  persons, precipitating them into  twelve feet of water.  Aa part of Its plan for the electrification of its line from Calgary  to Vancouver, the C.P.R. has taken  up the water rights of the Adams  river a few miles from Chase. The  river is very swift and carries an  immense volume of water at all  seasons of the year. It is estimated  that 100,000 horse power may be  developed at two different points  along its course.

Some iAOfti expeiiitiouB means uf  handling foods tn warehouses,  whether they bf crates, boxes, buleB,  or what not, han toug been necessary  to supplant the slow, antiquated  methods of doing this by manual  labour, especially In regard to transit  between building .and street. This has  been found In u new type of simple  conveyer that has recently been de-  vlat'd, and which lu now in successful  operation. It comprises a number of  trusties supporting a continuous series of wheels or rollers, oarrtecl ou  two rails like a light, narrow-gauge  railway. Ths wheels are employed  when boxes have to be haudled, and  the rollers fur bales and crates. The  system works entirely by gravitation,  a fall of about thirty Inches In one  hundred feet being advocated. Demonstrations with this simple appliance have sufficed to prove that  goods can be expeditiously and safely  transported by this means, and that  Sharp curves ceu be negotiated successfully. In a lofty building where  goods have to be discharged from  different levels the same system Is  adopted spirally, the gradient being  so arranged that tlie descending goods  do not acquire an unnecessary down-  Ward Impetus. The conveyer has been  adopted on one of the wharves of  Thames-side, and another larger Installation Is lu operation ut a Iielfast  factory, this latter plant handling  packages weighing up to five hundred-  Weight. The system Is stated to be far  cheaper and more efficient than the  ordinary belt conveyer, the cost of  Installation being very low.  THE ULOW-WOHM'S LIGHT  learned Men Differ In Opluolu as to  the Source aud  Nature of the  f Light.  French entomologists have been just  lately devoting much attention to the  study of the glow-worm, particularly  with reference to the source and  nature of Its light. It is found that  both male and female are luminous,  although In the former the light Is  much feebler. Even the eggs and  larvae are faintly luminous. The light  ts produced ou the last three segments  of.tho abdomen. It may perhaps ne  worth pointing out that tho glow-  Worm Is not a worm, but an Insect  belonging to the great order of beetles  tho Coleoptera. Luminosity among  Insects Indeed Is chiefly found In the  beetle order. The Mexican fireflies  Pyrophorus, for example, are  bottles. Somo of them give out sufficient light to read by. Waterton  sometimes used them lu this way to  write up his diary when wandering In  the South American forests.  In adult life the glow-worm Is a  vegetarian, feeding on tender leaves  of plants, but while a grub It Is carnivorous, feeding on snails and slugs.  The light of the glow-worm aud fireflies has been called phosphorescent  and attributed to phosphorus. Jousset  de Bellesme has stated his conviction  that It is phosphoretted hydrogen gas  Stored up In the cellular tissues uud  In communication with the nervous  and respiratory systems.  Fabre finds that phosphorus does  not enter luto the composition of the  luminous substance of the glow-worm.  Under the microscope it Is seen to be  a sort of white plaster covering the  epidermis and full of branching tubes.  Tke Miincliurlan Bean.  The "Japan Herald" has drawn attention to the fact that Mauchurian  beans were formerly used only to  make tofu, mlso, and soy. About fifty  years ago Chinese near Tlehllng and  ICalyuan first produced oil from them  by a process similar to that employed for sesame aud linseed. This  oil waa used for fuel and for cooking, aud the residual for buan-cake  fodder. In the winter of 1908 It began  to be exported Into Europe, where It  fco* found to be better than cottonseed for fuel, soap-maklng, and feeding cattle. This success has marvellously Increased the area devoted  to the growing of the beans, and has  caused the farmers lu the north of  Mauchurla tu give up wheat-raising.  The Shantung farmers discovered that  bean-cake was a first-rate fertiliser,  and after the war with China this  beau-cake was largely exported to  Japau.

The averuge lamp, if  submitted to a Jar or vibration such  as occurs in a large manufactory  where machinery Is running, Is apt  to break down. This disadvantage  counteracts the many attractive  features which the lamp possesses.  A recent invention seeks to obviate  this dsfSOt In this case the Btrands  of the filament, Instead of being looped over hooks, as is ihe usual prac-  tloe, are passed through small rings  whioh are carried on the hooks, hut  In such s manner as lo huve a little  free-play. By this arrangement tho  filaments are not held so rigidly, and  the effect of vibration Is uot so forcibly conveyed thereto4 It may be  pointed out that a lamp which suddenly gives out can often be given a  little longer life by turning on the  swltoh and giving the bulb a few  taps to cause the broken ends to  come together or fall across another  strand, when, immediately lighting up  and becoming Incandescent* they fuse  together.

He has already had a number of films made,  among ihem one which shows,  magnified millions of times, the  process of chemical crystallisation  of certain substances. To watch  the process as shown by that film  is to be deeply impressed with the  fact that there is something controlling even the action of inorganic matter. Edison expects to  send into all corners of the earth  gathering materials for his films  When this task is finished the pupils of the future will have opportunities of becoming acquainted  with activities of the world and of  nature lhat adults of today have  not even dreamed of.  Grand Forks to be a  Divisional Point  To make Grand Forks a divisional point, to construct inline  diately a roundhouse of at least  ten stalls, machine shops, union  station buildings and to establish  joint terminals with the Kettle  Valley railway, was agreed to by  the C.P.R. at a special meeting of  the Grand Forks city council last  Friday. In return the city gives  exemption of taxation for ten years  and free right of way for additional  trackage that will be required by  transcontinental traffic that will  pass through the boundary and  Kootenay on completion of the  Kettle Valley line.  Plans for the round house and  machine shops are ready and the  initial appropriation of $200,000  Ims been made by the company  to commence work. The intention  is to rush the work through by  winter.  New Brunswick Provincial  Elections  The New Brunswick provincial  elections resulted in practically a  clean sweep for the government,  only two opposition men, Messrs.  Dugal and Pelletier in Madawaska  being elected. In Northumberland  where three Independent Conservatives ran against the government  ticket, two of them, Stuart and  Doyle, were elected. In St. John  city, York and Sunbury counties,  the opposition candidates lost their  deposits. Mr. A. B. Copp the opposition leader, was badly beaten  in Westmoreland. Premier Flem-  ming headed the poll in Carleton.  The results of the voting gives the  government thirty-eight seats, Independents two and Opposition  two.  The Bishop of London has met  his five brothers together for the  dm time in forty years at Fulham  Palace. The eldest member pf the  family is Archdeacon of Hereford.  The second is H. F. W. Ingram, a  farmer of Gravesend, Ont. The  third is an admiral, the fourth Bishop of London, and the youngest  an Indian adminstrator.  An increase of more than eighty  million dollars in imports from the  United States, and more than eight  millions in those from Great Britain is shown from the figures of  Canadian trade for twelve months  ended April 30th last.  Contracts for the double-tracking  of 550 miles of the C. P. R. from  Sudbury to Port Arthur have been  awarded. The work will be done  this vear and will cost $10,000,000.  Canadian Railways say that the  reason for the congestion of traffic  ia the inability of the car shops to  turn out the rolling slock ordered.  The dock strike strike in Southampton has collapsed and the men  resumed work unconditionally.  The railway board refuses to allow the Grand Trunk Pacific railway to change the location of the  station at Hazelton.  The mountain townsite of Laggan  was almost wiped out of existence  by fire on Thursday night and Friday morning.  The Saskatchewan elections are  fixed for July  I Ith.

These Hnaps, however,  are not produced by the concussion  of two joint surfaces as they comu  suddenly into contact but, on the contrary, are due to the BUdden separation of two BUrfaces which have been  stuck together by a too viscid aud  tenacious synovial fluid (the synovial  fluid Is uf the consistency of white of  egg, uud Is Nuture's lubricator of our  Joints, In the cavities of which it Is  present).

Athletics  The Kelowna corner of the world  of sport has showed some undulation lately. Truly the road to victory never was greased, and the  color of victories gained by Kelowna's three league teams has lately  been thrown into a deep shadow  by defeats or battles hardly won.  The lacrosse boys left home last  week in a very hilarious spirit, but  returned from Vernon defeated by  fl goals to 6, which team they had  beaten but a fortnight previous by  10 goals to 3 ; whilst the baseball  team took a longer trip the same  day and met with a reverse at  Armstrong.whom they beat at home  in the first game of the season by  9-3.  This, of course, has considerably  handicapped Kelowna on the  league tables, but there is yet  plenty of room for an optimistic  turn of mind. It is a recognized  fact that the chances of a win are  doubled if a team is playing at  home, and we note with satisfaction  that recent defeats have been by  very narrow margins and met with  in away games.  To-day's lacrosse match against  Armstrong will considerably aid  and strengthen Kelowna if they  capture the two points, besides  placing them in the envied position.  But they will have to go all out to  do ic. Following is the present  position of the teams in the  league:  Don't forget out picnic to Woods  Lake on the 12th July, particulais  later.  We learn that Charlie Hereron  is to join the staff of the Royal  Bank in Kelowna. Success,  Charlie.  We are sorry to hear that Miss  Lizzie Carney injured her leg bv  falling off the bridge near her  home, we trust she will soon re-  recover from her injuries.  We hear that Mr. T.

The peculiar fascination of Crustacea consists largely In the extraordinary variety of bizarre forms which  they have assumed under the pressure  (so to speak) of their environment ���  infinite variations on much the same  theme of Joints and legs. Furnished  by nature with a beautifully articulated suit of armour (which they  are compelled to discard and reproduce from time to time to allow for  growth), evolution has had to play  some queer pranks with them to equip  them for the very varied sltuutlouB  !n life In which we find them ���  exaggerating or diminishing out of  all sense of proporUon (according lo  our Ideas of congrulty) a limb here,  a Joint or series of Joints there;  tucking one part of the body under  another; flattening luto a plate In  one case, drawing out Into u mere  thread in another; and thus und In  other ways giving rise to the quaintest series of forms to be met with In  the animal kingdom. Then their  curiously intelligent habits ure no  leas fascinating to watch ��� their  habit, for Instance, of carefully testing their envlrctment with their  feelers; their alternately retiring and  pugnacious disposition; their Inimitable gait and comical ways or walking  off sideways and of "backing." Ail  theBe fealures combine to awaken our  curluslty and strike our sense of  humour. Added to this -luck of dull  monotony In the group is the additional advantage to the student that  Crustacea, where they occur (and they  occur practically everywhere), ure  comparatively easy lo capture and to  keep in activity. They do not re-  (inire shooting or a laborious hauling  of nets,  or even digging up  to any  xlent. A dipping or a towing net or  simple trap Is generally all that 1b  eeessury to ensnare them. No wonder, therefore, that the Crustacea are  a favourite group with naturalists,  both  professional uud amateur,  A LIGHTNING PHENOMENON  Reports of the occurrence of  globular or bull lightning during recent severe thunderstorms In Europe have ugaln drawn attention  to this rare aud singular electrical  manifestation. Half a century ago the  reality of this phenomenon was much  doubted, but the gradual accumulation of trustworthy evidence has now  thoroughly demonstrated Its actual  existence, The records agree iu  describing the appearance as that or  a luminous ball, generally of a bluish  ���oluur, and varying in diameter from  i few Inches lo as much as three feet,  rile sphere h,is a sluggish motion,  either falling slowly from the clouds  ir drirtiug over the surface of the  fi'ound, the movement always being  such as to give the Impression that  lite thunderbolt Is of material heavier  than air, it [villains visible for several  let'i/nds or even minutes, and us a  ru'e finally explodes with great  Violence. The disappearance Is geu-  f't'iilly followed by a strong smell of-  ozone In the locality. During the  period or visibility the ball otten behaves In an extremely peculiar manner. Sometimes It seems prupelled  iluiig hurlzuntally by a feeble air current or by electric forces.
