Two new by-laws were then introduced and given a first reading.  No, 123 was to raise the sum of  $10,000 for the purpose of extending the water and light system.  Aid. Sutherland said he did not  think it would bo necessary in the  case of tha present by-law to hold  the usual meeting to discuss the  matter with the ratepayers. It  waa now generally recognized that  the mora extensions wera made to  the city water system the better it  paid. Pipe line extensions were  only put in on a paying basis, and  every new water user meant a  source of added revenue and profit  to the undertaking. By continuing  to extend the system the operating  expense was cut down. Last year  there had been a surplus of $2000  over all expenses, and this year it  was expected theie would be a  similar surplus shown. Two cars  of new pipe were necessary at  once for extensions.  The by-law was given a first  reading.  Mr. Paisley, the city scavenger,  was present at the request of Aid.  Raymer, chairman of the health  committee.  Mayor Jones said that several  complaints had been made lately  in reference to the removing of  rubbish from the rear of the stores  and he would like to hear what the  scavenger had to say in the matter.  Mr. Paisley emphatically denied  that there had been any cause for  complaint. He invited the council  to call up any of the stores and  ask if he had not made a point of  calling at least once a week. He  had to work, he pointed out, under  grn.it disadvantages. There was  only one store which had a proper  place in which to deposit waste  paper and other rubbish. Some  of them had boxes and crates  which were too small for the purpose and even then were vety  careless in. using them, throwing  paper loose on the ground to be  blown all over the place, making  hia work much more difficult.  Asked as to whether ho would  be willing to undertake the contract for another year, he said he  was prepared to take it on again at  the same price if the council would  arrange for aome assistance in the  spring at the nuisance ground in  the spring.  The matter waa left in the hands  of the committee.  By-law No. 124, for the purpose  of amonding tha Trade License  By-law was introduced. Tho amendment called for an increase in  the hotel licenses from .$300 to  $600 per year.  The two new by-laws were then  given a aecond reading and the  council resolved itself into a committee of tha whole to discuss them.  The only discussion, however,  waa on the proposal to increase  the hotel licenses. The view was  generally expressed that the preaent rate waa too low, and as most  of the work of the police was rendered necessary by the bars, it waa  felt that the hotels should contribute more towards the cost of police-  ing tho city, more especially because an increase in the force  in the force would soon be necessary.  On resuming the ordinary meeting the council gave the two bylaws a third reading.  December 27th was fixed upon  as tha polling day on tne money  by-law No. 123.  A refund of $7.48 was made to  G, C, Rose, being local improvement taxes on a wooden sidewalk  removed before payment had been  completed.  Aid. Raymer brought up the  question of electric signs. A number of business men were desirous  of puttin* up signs if they could  be allowed to overhang the sidewalk. At present there was a bylaw which forbade this.  Various opinions were expressed  as to the advisability of allowing  over-hanging signs.  Aid. Millie thought they should  certainly be allowed upon side  utreets, as it encouraged the spread  of business off the main stteet.  Mayor Jones said a committee  would shortly meet the building  inspector to discuss several amendments to the building by-law and  the matter could be discussed then.  Aid. Taylor asked if the city  could not do something to stop  spitting on the sidewalks. They  should sec that the provincial law  was eaforced.  Aid. Blackwood draw attention  Six clergymen are on the rolls  of the police department at Los  Angeles as special officers. They  wear stars like plain clothes men  and are empowered to make arrests  for any infraction of the law.  Their special duties, however, are  the enforcement of the juvenile  laws and the regulation of dance  halls and other places where young  men and women congregate for  amusement.  The minister-policemen are  members of the Juvenile Protective  League. They have been commissioned by Mayor Alexander not  only to safequard the young and  prevent the exploitation of children  but to arrest and prosecute parents  who neglect the welfare of their  hildren.  Balkans and Turks  Will Confer in London  The British Government has  placed the historic St. James' Palace at the disposal of the peace  plenipotentiaries representing the  Ottoman empire and the allied  Balkan nations for the purpose of  holding a conference with the  hope of arriving at terms of peace.  Arrangements for the conference are being made for the opening, as if in defiance of all superstitions on Friday, December 13.  According to the latest information  the conference will not be held in  a government office, but in a building of a character appropriare to  the occasion, with ample accommodations for the delegates and  their entourage.  m /  Clerical Policemen  Thirty-five Millions  in Warships  Canada's Contribution to Imperial Defence  The building which ia being erected next to Cameron's blacks,, ith  shop for the new Garage Company  is making rapid progress, tne brickwork beirtg rushed to take advantage of the mild weather.  Dr. C. W. Dickson and Mr. F. M.  Buckland are the hospital visiting  committee for the month.  The Fire Brigade Ball held last  Friday evening in the Opera House  was a great success, a record crowd  of dancers being present. The  room was decorated in a noyel and  artistic manner in which the war  canoe and trophies won by the  boys figured to advantage. The  supper was a great affair and  reflected great credit upon the  ladiea who had taken this department in hand.  Messrs. Casorso Bros, have now  got their new butcher business  into thorough going order and already are having to meet a heavv  trade. Two delivery rigs are kept  constantly going filling orders.  This week a car of turkeys and  geese was unloaded for the Christmas season. The store is being  equipped in a thoroughly modern  and up-to-date way for the handling of meat in the moat sanitary  and expeditious manner. A refrigerating plant will be installed  in the rear driven by an electric  motor which is already in its place.  All the meat is killed locally on  Casorso's own ranch where a large  new slaughter - houss has been  erected.  Daring Train Hold-up  In a manner as simple as it was  efficient a lone masked bandit held  up and robbed every passenger in  the chair car on the C.P.R. train  which left Vancouver on Saturday  night at 7.4S o'clock. The systematic clean-up was made as the train  was running along the shores of  Burrard Inlet between the B.C.  Sugar Refinery Co.'s plant and a  point some two miles east of Hastings. The total booty secured by  the bandit was $309.25, and a few  pieces of jewelry,  to the large amount ol timber and  brushwood cut last year which was  lying around in the park. He  thought it might be given to some  person who would clean up the  place and burn the rubbish.  The meeting then adjourned till  next Monday.  The Dominion Parliament is  asked to vote $35,000,000 for the  construction of three ships of thc  super Dreadnaught class, to be the  strongest in the world. Thc ships  will be built in great Britain and  he at the disposal of the British  Admiralty for the common defence  of the Empire. They will be maintained and controlled as part of  the Royal Navy and Canada is  assured that if at any time in the  future Canada desires to establish  a Canadian unit of the British Navy  these vessels can be recalled by  Canada to form part of her 'Navy,  in which case they will be maintained by Canada and nnt Great  Britain. In the event of Canada  desiring to withdraw her ships,  due notice will be given to the  Admiralty.  Premier Borden informed the  house that the additional cost of  constructing the three Dreadnoughts in Canada would be in lhe  vicinity of $ 12,000,000.  The full text of the Naval Bill of  Canada, which was introduced into the House by Premier Borden,  ia as follows:��� ^  " An act for increasing the naval  forces of the Empire.  ' His Majesty, by and with the  advice and consent of the Senate  and House of Commons of Canada,  enacts an follows:  ' I. From and out of the con-  aolidated revenue fund of Canada  there may be paid and applied a  sum not exceeding $35,000,000 for  the. purpose of immediately increasing the effective naval forces of the  Empire.  " 2. The said sum shall be used  and applied under the direction of  the Governor-in-Council in the con  struction and equipment of battle  ships or armored cruisers of the  most modern and powerful type.  " 3. The said ships, when con  slructed and equipped, shall be  placed by the Governor-in-Council  at the disposal of His Majesty for  the common defence of the Empire.  "4. The said sum shall be paid  used and applied, and the said  hips shall be constructed and  placed at the disposal of His Majesty, subject to such terms, conditions and arrangements as may be  agreed upon by and between the  Governor-in-Council and His Majesty's government.  The preliminary portion of the  Premier's speech was devoted to  an outline of the development of  Great Britain and the Oversea Dominions. This led to -a consideration of the necessity for cooperation in the matter of trade and  defence.  The Premier quoted in full a  memorandum of the British Admiralty dealing with international  affairs, and which was prepared at  the request of the Canadian government. The most striking feature of the memorandum was that  the British Government had informed Canada that it had no hesitation  in saying that after a prolonged  consideration of all the circumstances it was desirable that such  aid as Canada might give should  include the provision of a certain  number of the largest and strongest ships of war which science  couhl-build or money buy.  Meeting of Board of  School Trustees  The Board of School Trustees  met last Tuesday week.  A batch of correspondence dealing with the proposed new school  was read and filed.  A letter was read from the Hon.  the Minister of Education regretting that he was unable to comply  with the Board's request for an  additional grant for the new school  building.  The Superintendent of Education  wrote stating that in future Kelowna would be included amongst  cities of the second claso in education matters.  In another communication the  superintendent stated that he had  forwarded a medal which had  been awarded to Miss Mary Day  the pupil who had stood highest  in the high school entrance examination in June last, as a memento  of the visit paid by Their Royal  Highnesses the Duke and Duchess  of Connaught to Kelowna.  The Inspector of Manual Training in Public Schools wrote stating  that he would visit Kelowna for  the purpose of consulting the trustees on the work of his department.

The Plymouth Rock the  Bird for the Farmer  very  [A Paper read by Mr. A. NOTLEY before  a meeting ol the Kelownn Poultry or  Pet Stock Association on Wednesday,  December 4th, I9I2.|  The Plymouth Rock is probably  better known and more widely  liked than any other breed of fowl.  1 he name is an appropriate one  nnd anything given a uood name  starts right on- the road to success, hut the Rocks under any  name would have been a success.  Ask ten fanners lo name their  favorite bird and nine will tell you  tlie Rocks are not lo be beaten.  Ask why it is, thev reply : Simply  because the Rocks are hardy and  good foragers, and therefore demand lillle nttciilion.  Activity and hardiness are always important, but much more so  when the owner has little time to  attend to them ; but the constant  inbreeding and neglect causes the  birds to be very much undersized  and comparatively unprofitable.  But all honor to whom it is due.  Some farmers have splendid Hocks  of this breed and attend to them  well, but when we come lo compare the farmers' Rocks with tl  exhibition Recks we see  wide contrast.  The breed has descended from  the Black Java lien crossed with  Dominique cock. It is from the  latter bird >ve get the beautiful  bailing. Often a black chicken  will hatch out in a brood, and this  is some proof of their ancestors  the Black Java hen.  Another thing that is often  noticed, too, is thc dark coloring in  the beak of some of the Rocks  and occasionally a little discoloring  iu the legs. Ihis also, I think  points to the Black Java which  has both black beak and legs.  It is an extremely difficult matter to breed for points as the  Standard requires it, and none but  an expert can do it. 1 he Standard  says the plumage should be grayish-white, each feather crossed  by regular, narrow, parallel, sharply-defined dark bars that stop  short of positive black ; free from  shafting, brownish tinije, or metallic sheen ; the light and daik bars  to be of equal width and to extend  throughout the lenglh of the  feathers in all sections of the bird,  each feather on females ending  with a narrow datk'tip, lhe combination of overlapping feathers  giving the plumage a bluish appearance. The colors should be  modified black and white in all  sections, the bars narrow, regular  and parallel across the feathers,  the overlapping of the feathers  producing a bluish tinge when  viewed under certain light reflections. The perfect bird should  show the same shade of color in  all sections and be barred to the  skin. 1 his barring to the skin has  become such a rage that many a  good bird is thrown out owing to  the one defect of not being barred  to the skin.  Just the same with the Rhode  Island Reds. No matter how good  a shape, size and surface color, il  it shows smutty undercolor it  loses its honors. I think thnt a  bird that has good size and vigor,  shape and surface color ; that Is  rich, clear and even, ought to take  the preference of undercolor, hul  it is useless to argue with scientific  breeders on this point, ns so many  have the color required by the  standard or nearly so.  The rocks are hardy birds and  good layers. They stand the cold  weather better than most breeds.  The meat is rather coarse but of  good flavor. One of their greatest  faults is extreme broodiness. Ihey  will sit on a glass egg or a china  ��� loor knob longer than any other  breed, but for utility and artistic  beauty they cunnol be bealen. The  true color cannot be learned bv  the Standard, only by observation.  The standard weight is, cock 9_lbs.,  hen 7i lbs., cockerel fl lbs., pullet  6J lbs.  If the rocks have limited range  they need to be carefully and  intelligently kept because thev are  a breed of bird that put on fat  very quickly, and it is very annoying when you kill and open one  to find that instead,of feeding for  eggs you have been feeding posterior fat; it is eggs that are  ��� wanted not fat.  Eggs are a me.al  in  themselves.  livery element necessary lo the  support of man is contained within the egg shell. It is the best of  nutriment in the most concentrated  form, and no honest appetite will  ever reject one. 1 hey are the very  best of nutriment for children.  1 hey contain all that is necessary  for the growth of the youthful  frame. Even the shell is valuable.  Any druggist will tell you it is the  very purest ot carbonate of lime.  With the exception of two  months moulting period Rocks are  all-year revenue producers, giving  quick returns for capital invested  with wise and intelligent management.  For manv years the Rocks have  been America's most popular  fowl. They have proven their value  as market poulliy and ns layers,  nnd as such they are classed as  general purpose fowls. I he chickens mature rapidly, and this breed  can be strongly recommended to  anyone growing poultry for market  There are six varieties of this  breed, hut the Barred is away  ahead the most popular.  The poultry business is in a very  prosperous condition and growing  at a wonderful rate, and I think 1  am quite right in saying lhat it  will be one of EC's leading  industries.  Get the right stock to start with.  Use common sense and stick-to-it-  ivenness. There is no business  lhat is so sure of success and so  certain of a market as is the poultry business.

Amusemerits  David Garrick  " David Garrick," the play to be  presented by the -Summerland  Player* orf Saturday, December  2 I si was first produced in London  in 1864, when the inimitable Snth-  erri of Lord Dundreary f arfie play d  Garrick, but he. waa not -the only  actor who achieved distinction in  this part, fbr It has proved to be  one of the most important mediums of the art of Sir Chaifes  Wyndham, who periodically revives the play with the greatest-  success, r  The story, founded on a pretended incident in Garrick's life,  waa first dramatized for the Get-  man stage, then translated into  French, and eventually adapted  for the English stage by Ti W.  Robertson.       ��� . ���     ^  The Scene opens in the home of  a wealthy city merchant, Simon  Ingot, whose only daughter lias  fallen in love with Garrick, whom  she haa seen on the stage but has  never met. The love proves to be  something more than a mere stage  infatuation, so much no that her  father, who is anxious that she  should marry her cousin, became  greatly concerned and determines'  to send.for Garrick with the view  of asking him tp leave the stage,  in fact the country, in the hope  that being no more able to see Irm  his daughter may in time forget  him.,Garrick arrives and of coin ee  ridicules the idea of giving up a  profession to which he is bound  heart and soul. - He, however, proposes a plan by which he promises the father to disillusion the  girl. He induces the father to ask  him to a dinner that Ingot is giving  that night and to some old friends,  friends that he knew when he was  poor.  In the second act the guests arrive, an odd company, and one  in which Garrick finds himself  strangely out of 'place. The last  to enter the room and be presented  to Garrick is the daughter, whom  he no sooner sees than he realizes,  too late, that he has promised to  disillusion the one woman who  has ever created a really deep impression upon him, although he  has only seen her as a member of  the audience. However, he has  given his worcl of honor to the  father, and he keeps his promise  so well that it was not long hefore  the spell begins to work. ln lhe  words of Chivy, an acquaintance  his, " he acts lhe drunkard, lhe  gamester and lhe bully, everything  to disgust thc girl," and with   such  that she .eventually orders him out  of the house.  In the following scene she discovers that not only is he in love  with her but that the role of drunkard and Gambler was only assumed to'disillusion'her on account of  a promise given to her father.  She also hears that this escapade  has led him into a duel, which she  determines to avert at any cost.  The following morning she goes  to Carrier's house and meets him  on his return from the duel. Her  father who has followed her comes  in just in time to hear-Gairick advise her to go bock, at,once to her  home.       .���    . . .,.,,  Whelhor this advice was acted  upon or not will be seen by, those  who attend the perfomlance oh  Saturday, December 21st.    ,  -Variety.

The Orchard City Record  Thursday, December 12  Mission Creek and  Benvoulin Notes  The regular wtekly meeting of  the Benvoulin Literary Society will  be held on Friday evening, December 13th in the Mission Creek  school at 7.30 p.m. The programme includes a debate, the subject being, " Resolved that government ownership of public utilities  is more beneficial than private  ownership.'* The affirmative will  betaken by Mr. Weaks and -Mr.  Reid, and tbe negative by Mr.Ssett  and Mr. Rust. This subject should  prove   an   interesting   discussion.  After the debate a short talk on  " Maple Sugar Making," is to be  given by the Rev. H. S. Kimball.  A cardial invitation is extended to  all.  The following clipping from the  ''New Hampshire Sentinel" will  interest many of our readers :���  Surrey Congregational church  has been so fortunate |aa to have  had the services of the Rev. H. S,  Kimball for three years as pastor.  He preached his last sermon aa  pastor last Sunday and took for hia  text. " What is Your Life)" The  attendance was Urge notwithstanding the rainy weather. At the  close of the sermon he expressed  entire satisfaction in his relstions  with the church and people. Mr.  and Mrs. Kimball go next week to  Britiah Columbia, where their son-  in-law, Mr. Bowser, and family live.  The climate there will no doubt  benefit their health and give them  a change. Mr.Kimball has'preach-  ed nearly fifty years without any  rest. He will be greatly missed  here, and we are sorry ha ia not  to continue with us longer. He  has lived amongst ua a life that  exemplifies the truth he preaches.  Hopeful, courageous, cheerful, winsome, he is a faithful aervant of  hia master, Jesus Christ. The  community will feel a genuine loaa  whan he goes, as his attitude toward everyone haa been kindly  and friendly. One person haa put  it, " Hia presence is a benediction."  Cities, like men, have careers,  which to a great extent are determined by environment and to a  great extent by the innate energy  and the habitual ethical standards  of their inhabitants. The city can  no more escape from thr penalties  of early heedlessness than a man  can remove from hia life the acars  left by recklessness and wicked'  nees ni his youth.�����. F. Wile*.

Each airship will  carry one ton of explosives. A  bill to this effect will be introduced  in the Reichstag by the government.  A total of 57 ocean steamers entered the port at Montreal during  September. This is one more lhan  arrived the preceeding month.  The Chief Forester of the province announced recently the earnest desire of the Forest Branch in  Victoria to assist those who require  information on any phase of the  forest industry.  Russia began a forest policy in  1613 and had forest reserves in  1687.   She possesses  to-day,  the  greatest store   of   timber   in   the  world.  One forest in France pays over  20 million dollars annually. Such  a thing as a fire, oi course, is unknown.  There is a town in Europe whose  citizens receive a dividend over  and above the municipal expenses.  Wise use of the surrounding forest  has made it a permanent and growing revenue producer.  France has spent over 40 million  dollars in an endeavor to prevent  the esosion of the soil from mountains whose slopes have been denuded, of timber through forest  fires.  The forest industry had a value  to British Columbia in 1911 of  $28,000,000���almost equivalent to  the value of the foodstuffs produced and imported.  H. P. MacMillan, chief forester  of the province, has established a  bureau of information in the Forest Branch,'Victoria, from which  statistics, etc., regarding the forest  and the forest industries may be  had.

Io "Some Recollections" Canon  Tel��niiiouih Shore, who hus Just died,  tells a curious story or the reason  why finger-bowls nre uot placed on  the table during the dinners of the  Royal household. The explanation was  (urnJshed by Sir John Uuweli, Muster  of tho Household.  . "He explained to me," suys the  Canon, "thut In the old days, when  {there was a certain Jacobite element  even ta the vicinity of the Court, it  bad been noticed that on the toast  M 'The Kins' being given after dinner, eome of those present used to  tnetttt their glass over the finger-bowl,  knd tt was discovered that thus they  Idrank 'To the King over the water,'  anil the temptation to uo so was removed hy the abolition of the finger-'  howls!"  Aa account of an amusing conversation between King Edward, the  Oorauii Emperor, and the Canon Is'  also given ln tlie book mentioned.'  King Edward and the Knincr were on  la brief visit to Prince ond Princess  iOharlea of Hesse, at Cronhorg, und  came over to the town one day lo,  unveil a memorial to the Princess'  Elizabeth of Hesse.  "After the ceremony they expressed  a wish to see the memorial in tlie  English church to the late Empress  Frederick. I accompanied their Majesties, and on entering the building  the Emperor turned to me.  " 'Now, Canon,' h�� said, 'how many  noes the church hold?'  "'In the season, your Majesty,' I  renllcd, 'there are about three Iran-1  &or   three   hundred   and   fifty  nt.'  "'And how many of them are asleep  during the sermon?' he asked, with a|  Hugh.  "'1 must beg your Majesty,' I said,  "not to think that 1 preach every Sun-!  Bay!'  "The Kilng, who seemed amused and,  pleased at the answer, remarked:��� ���  "'You see ,you must get up early1  to walk round my chaplain.'  "'Yes, and a good walk too!' said  the Emperor, with a glance at my  somewhat bulky figure.  "'Yes,' said the King.' 'You know,  Tolgnniouth Shore, you are putting  on weight'  . "'Well, at all events,' said the Emperor, with a most gracious smile,!  %e never needs to do that In the^  Ipulplt!'"  A Dae Moines man had an attack of  muscular rheum.tiem in his shoulder.

TWO Al'MENCES  Mr, lloniir Law Speaks (o Lions and:  Hyenas,  Never, perhaps, has a leading politician delivered a speech under more,  extraordinary conditions thuu those  Whioh characterized a meeting three  years ago at Mountain Ash, Glanior-  grari when Mr. Bonar Law, thc new  Leiaaer of tlie Opposition ' wns announced to speak. The pavilion at  Mountain Ash, which will seat more  than 10,000 people, had been let to  Hia Tory Party (or Mr. Bonar Law'B  meeting. Almost immediately afterwards Messrs. Hoatock and Wombwell  came along and offered forthwith to  rent tlie big ���bulldtng for the winter.  Tho hall was lei to them, and the  Conservatives iwore told lhat they  could not have It for their demonstration.  Mr. Llttlejohns, the orgnuizor, informed the owners that his meeting  would bs held there at all costs.  After some complimentary passages  at arms had hceii exchanged It was  decided that the lions and edephanta  and hyenas should form part of Mr.  Boner Law's audience, but that they  should be walled ln with canvas  matting. They were well fed before  ths meeting, and thc show bund was  engaged so ihul the animals should  pot be disturbed with strange music.  Znalde the wall their keepers marched  to and fro with prods to prevent the  lions and monkeys from Interrupting  the speakers.  Mr. Bonar Law arrived late, and  was unconscious of the fact thnt he*,  was Addressing two audiences. As  the human audience applauded, how-  ���Ver, the prods were vigorously used  to prevent -the listeners in the cages  from discording the chorus.  When Mr. Bonar Law reached his  peroration one of tho lions was so  struck with the force of the argument  that he 'hollowed forth his approval.  It waa an anxious moment. The prod,  however, opposed his applause, and  be subsided In disgust  When Mr. Bonar Law had finished  and had sat down he said to Mr.  Llttlejohns: "I thought It was a very  successful attempt by some Liberal  opponent to Imitate a lion's voice."
