 Ketotoma Kerurt.  T  VOL XI.   NO. 12  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA. THURSDAY. FEBRUARY 6. 1919.������ PAGES  (1.50 Per  Regular Meeting of  City Council  At the regular meeting of tbe  city council Monday the letter, before referred to, from the Miniater  of Lands, dealing with the Dominion government's housing scheme  for returned soldiers, was read. It  stated that provincial legislation  was proposed providing for cooperation between municipalities and  the government, the work of building to be undertaken by the municipalities on plana to be paaaed by  the government, which would advance the necessary money. The  The prop uaad appropriation lor Kelowna  waa J75O0 and the minister desired to know  whether there waa likely to be any de.  - raand for returned aoldiera.  In thia connection the mayor stated that  a committee had beon formed in the city  for the purpose of considering the expediency of erecting a building in the park  aa a memorial to our citizens who had  taken part io tha great war. He suggested that the miniater of landa he advised  that tha proposed appropriation for Kelowna could be placed to much better use  in assisting to erect thia "Memorial Hall,"  and that a request be made to have the  money available for auch purpose.  It was decided to write to thia effect.  A proposal from Mr. G. G. McGeer,  iVLPJ*. for Richmond, to place the entire  police fores of the province including the  various cities and organized districts  under the control of an independent Police Commission appointed sifter the manner of the Railway Board of Canada, and  answerable to the legislative assembly,  did not meet with much approval aa the  council were oppoaad to changing the  present ayatem,  Mr. S. T. Elliott wrote advising that he  did not intend to allow hia claim for repaira to the furnace grates in the houae  rented by the city aa a barracks, to drop,  and would carry the matter into court if  necessary.  A resolution from the Board of Trade  aaking for captured field guns aa trophies  for the city park wae endorsed.  A petition waa received from property  ownera on Richter street north to grade  aad gravel that street.  W. it. Millar waa granted $24.15 for extra work in connection with the emergency hospital, and J. J. Campbell $20 for like  services.  Tha Mayor reported that the polka  commissioners had decided to strictly enforce the law regarding "punch boarda"  ... - in certain stores, and also with respect to  riding on tba sidewalks, aad tha polios  had been instructed accordingly.  Ths Health Committe had alao been  requested to put a atop to the practice of  depositing refuse from the canning and  packing lactones in various parte of the  city. Complainta had been made especially in regard to the sloughs on the north  side of tha city, aa theae sloughs drained  into the lake near the water works intake.  Aid. Meikle reported a request from the  fire brigade for six chain, snd in accordance with his auggestion it waa decided to  turn over the chain uaed by the council,  and to purchase new onea for the council  chamber.  A number of salary increases were decided upon aa follows i j. Duncan and W.  A. Newton of the power houae, to $100  per month: F. Gore, to $90; a Beleillie,  to$100; and the aalariea of the three  membera of the office staff, C. H. Dunn,  P. T. Dunn, and H. W. Arbuckle increased by $.5 par month.  Aid. Rattenbury waa appointed acting  mayor in tbe absence of Mayor Sutherland  who announced bis intention of being  away for a couple of weeks.  Feelings of deepest sympathy  and regret have been awakened  this week by the news of the death  Tuesday morning of Misa Opal  Thompson, third daughter of Mr.  and Mrs. J. W. Thompson, of  Stockwell Avenue.  Misa Thompson, who was well-  known to evervone from her position in the post office, was taken  ill three months ago with influenza which led to a complication of  lung troubles, from which for some  time it has been apparent there  waa no hope of recovery.  Deceased was nineteen years of  age, and as the family have resided in Kelowna for a number of  years, had attended the schools  and grown to voung womanhood  here.  The funeral took place yesterday  afternoon, and waa very largely  attended. There was a profusion  of wreaths and flowers from numerous sympathisers, amongst which  was one from the Knox Church  Sunday-school and from the particular class of which she was a  member. The pall-bearers, select  ed from the young men of the  Sunday-school, were Norman De-  Hart, Jim Calder, Roy Haug, Floyd  Faulkner, W. McGibbon and Ian  Weddell.  Women's Institute  Prepare Year's Work  The regular monthly meeting of  the Kelowna Women's Institute  was held on Saturday, February I,  in the domestic science kitchen,  with 45 membera preaent. After  the reading of the minutes the report on the membership competition waa given, which showed an  addition of 48 to the roll, Mrs.  Rogers leading with 17 to her  credit while Mre. Dibb came second, with 16. The "alao ran" made  up the remaining 15.  The question of a permanent  place of meeting waa diacuased  and a committee consisting of  Mesdames W. Lloyd-Jones, Rowcliffe and D. W. Sutherland was  appointed to look into the matter  and report at next meeting.  A letter was read from Mrs.  MacLachlan, secretary of the Pro-  incial Advisory Board, enclosing  a resolution favouring mothers'  pensions, and on motion this waa  endorsed by the Kelowna lnatitute.  The programme for the year  was read and discussed, and a  committee was named to arrange  each month for music and other  accessions to the programme. Mesdames Lynche, DeHart and Williams are the committee. The sec-  retaiy was instructed to write the  advisory board in regard to a demonstrator.  , Mesdames Cameron, Binger and  Austin were appointed a committee to prepare the prize liat for the  fluwer ahow. Mrs. Rogers was  appointed to represent the Institute  at a meeting called by the Great  War Veterans to discuss a memorial to the fallen aoldiera. A motion waa alao passed that a resolution be sent to the city council  urging sewerage connection with  thc schools.  Mrs. Cartridge spoke of the need  <-f readjustment of the regulations  in connection with the fancy work  exhibit at the Fall Fair, stating that  it was unfair that women and girls  whose time for such work was  limited should have to compete  with experts from the larger cities,  and as there will now be leas demand for war work, the girls should  be encouraged in all that goes to  make attractive homes. On motion Mrs. Cartridge and Miss Reekie were appointed to confer with  the directors of the A. & T. Association on the matter.  Mrs. Cartridge next gave a demonstration on the making of biscuits and jellied tongues. Recipes  for these, also for a raw relish were  given, and the biscuits, tongue and  relish, were served together with  tea provided bv the executive.  It was suggested, as the per capita and flower show giants were  given on the membership as on  June 30th, that the fee of those becoming members after that date  should be $1, instead of 50c aa at  present. No action waa taken however.  The executive met for a few  minutes at the close of the meeting and Mesdames Binger and  Willits were added to the directorate. The next meeting, to be  held on March 1st, will, it is expected, consist in part, of an exhibit of war souvenirs.  United Church Annual Meeting  The annual congregational meeting of the Kelowna United Church  will be held on Wednesday even  ing, February 12th. The gathering  will take the form of a banquet to  be served by the Ladies' Aid, Morrison's Hall having been secured  for the occasion. All members  and adherents are cordially invited.  Open Third Session of  Provincial Legislature  Session's Work Forecast in the  Speech From Throne  The third session ot the fourteenth provincial Parliament was opened last Thursday without special  incident and with an entire absence  of the usual pomp and formality.  Hia Honor the Lieutenant-Governor read the formal apeech from  the throne at 3 o'clock. Hon. E.  D. Barrow was duly introduced as  a new' minister, Major Burde of  Alberni and Pte. Frank Giolma of  Victoria were also introduced, two  small bills made their appearance  and arrangements were then concluded for an adjournment until  Monday.  At that time the reply to the address was to be moved & seconded  by Messrs. F. W. Anderson of  Kamloops and F. A. Pauline of  Saanich.  His Honor's speech was aa follows:  Mr. Speaker and Members of the  Legislative:  In greeting you at this, the opening of the third session of the fourteenth Legislature of British Colun -  bia, I give thanks to Almighty God  that he hath granted victory to the  arms of Great Britain and her allies;  that her enemies have been compelled to aue for peace, and that a  conference of representatives of  the allied nations i* now in session  to determine the conditions of  of peace.  My government recognizes and  rejoices in the strength displayed  by tbe British forces, and appreciates the valiant part taken in this  war by His Majesty's subjects in  the Dominion of Canada, taking  modest but just pride in the achievement of the brave men from this  province, many of whom have  earned and received tokens of  their distinguished conduct.  My government is not forgetful  of those who have paid tne supreme  sacrifice in order that freedom and  justice might be secured, and the  right of self-determination established for all the nations of the  earth. Their memories will be  cherished by our people, and the  principles for which they died, because of their sacrifice, shall be upheld by those who, remain.  To those who have been spared  and will return from overseas, I  voice not only my own sentiment  but that of my government arid the  people of British Columbia, when  I assure them of a hearty welcome,  feeling confident they will resume  their vocations with the same fortitude and courage displayed on the  field of battle, uniting earnestly  with those to whom they will be  restored in efforts to reestablish  the prosperity of the province and  develop its resources for the bene'  fit of all  Last summer my government  urged upon the Prime Minister of  Canada the importance of summoning a conference at which the  several province* as well as the  Dominion would be represented,  for the discussion and coordination  of plans for the reestablishment of  returned and returning aoldiera in  civil life. As a reault representatives of the Dominion and all the  provincial governments met in Ottawa, following which certain plans  were formulated in November last  and assurances were given to the  federal government that the hearty  cooperation of the several provinces would be accorded in carrying  out the propoaals agreed upon.  Required legislation to implement  this pledge on the part of my government will be placed before you.  A tract  of land  in  the South  Committee Will Seek  Information Regarding  Memorial Building  The proposal to erect * Memorial Hall in the city park has been  the subject of two meetinga during  the past week, without, however,  yet, any very definite reault.  The first was held Friday last in  the Great War Veterans' room, Lt.  H. J. Hewetson being elected to  the chair. The proposal, which, it  was stated, had originated with  the Veterans' .Association, namely,  that instead of a monument or  other erection which would be of  no use to the community, a building be erected which would serve  the purpose of a gymnasium for  the youth of the city, an auditorium  for. large public meetings, head"  quarters for the Boy Scouts, and  also as a clubroom for the Veterans* Association, was discussed  from many angles. There was apparently a strong feeling thet some form  of memorial should be erected, and that  if theie three purposes could be combined  successfully such a building was much to  be desired. From the meeting a committee selected as far as possible to represent  all the institutions and associations likely  to be interested in such a scheme. This  committee waa charged with the duty of  gathering information as to ways and  means of financing such an undertaking,  and also to formulate some definite plan  for the building.  This committee met Tuesday but there  was little further information available. It  estimated that a building such as  would meet all the purposes required  would cost in the neighbourhood of  $15,000. This, it was stated, would be for  a frame building, which raised the question as to whether a structure of that kind  would really be a permanent memorial to  the soldiers, such as many people desired.  Discussing the future maintenance of the  building, it was stated that the Veteran's  Association were prepared to undertake  that work.  The meeting adjourned in order to allow  opportunity to secure particulars of  ilar buildings in other places, from  which a definite plan could be prepsred  to lay before a large public meeting.  Will Reorganize Soc.  for Prevention of  Cruelty to Animals  An effort is being made to reorganize in Kelowna the Society  for the Prevention of Cruelty to  Animals. A branch of the Society  waa formed here some years ago,  but owing largely to the removal  of those interested, hss been per.  mitted to become dormant. Sev.  eral cases have occurred during  the paat few months which have  emphasized the need not only for  reviving the organization here, but  for equipping it with larger powers  and authority.  The object of the S.P.C.A. is to  protect from ill-treatment the dumb  animals who are at the mercv of  man, both wild and domesticated.  Upon the services of the latter the  human race ia, to a large extent,  dependent, and the leaat we ahould  do for them in return is to treat  them- decently. It is surely the  meanest of Crimea to abuse the  defenceless, especially those which  labor for our benefit.  The policy of the S.P.C.A. is to  attain its object by suasion, advice  and warning, having recourse to  sterner measures onlv in flagrant  caaea or where other meana have  failed of effect.  It is hoped that all who sympathize with dumb creatures and  deaire their welfare will support  the local branch of this Society. A  meeting is called for Saturday, the  15th, at 2 p.m., in Mr. Rattenbury's  office, and it ia to be hoped that  there will be a good attendance  Dancing is Banned  Throughout Province  Considerable agitation haa been  caused this week by the announcement of a provincial order-in-council prohibiting public and private  dances, on account of the influenza  epidemic. The wording of the  order left some doubt as to whether it was the intention to apply  its provisions to Kelowna, or only  to certain places where influenza  regulations were in force. A telegram from the provincial police to  Victoria elicited a reply which did  not altogether clear up the doubt,  and aa several dances are being  projected, it became necessary to  know without possibility of misunderstanding just how the city stood  in the matter. Accordingly, upon  inatructions from the mayor, the  city clerk wired yesterday for a  definite statement which would aet  all doubt at rest. The reply came  thia morning to the effect that all  dancing throughout the province  was prohibited for the period in  which the order remained in force.  In consequence, several dances  which have been announced for  the next few weeks, have had to  be called off.  Farther Assurance  That C.N.R. Will Start  Construction This Year  Further assurance that the C. N.  railway into Kelowna will be under construction this apring is contained in a message to Premier  Oliver, who wired at the request of  Mr. J. W. Jones, to the Minister of  Railways at Ottawa asking for a  definite assurance that the line  would be built at once. The reply  came from D. 8. Hanna, chairman  of the Railroad Board, aa followa:  Hon. John Oliver���  "Your meaaage 26th to Dr. Reid  re Kamloops-Vernon line, it ia  our intention to proceed with the  construction of this line this year,"  lore Returned Men  Arrive During Week  Further detachments of Kelowna's returned men have been coming in during tbe past week and  have been given the usual welcome  by the crowd which gathers in response to the call of the steam  whistles. Sometimes, however, a  soldier will slip in unknown to  those who have charge of these  matters, and in consequence may  get a somewhat quiet reception.  All such are assured that notwithstanding any auch miscarriage of  arrangements, they are none the  leas welcome and the public feels  just as appreciative of what they  have done as if all the whistles in  town had whistled themselves inside out.  A caae of this sort happened on  Friday when T. Akeroyd, one of  Kelowna's "Asia" men, who had  atayed behind to viait friends at  the coaat returned unexpectedly.  On Saturday, a party' of nine  more who had crossed the Atlantic via the Aquitania, arrived a  little later than had been expected  owing to delays along the line.  Theae were M. J. Featherstonehaugh. A. Smith, D. Turnbull, H.  Hookham, T. Barratt, H. H. Verity,  R. Graham and H. V. Marshall.  On the same day, alao arrived R.  D. Rowley, of East Kelowna, and  H. LeFevre. Rowley was a 172nd  man, transferred to the 54th later.  He bears two wound stripes earned at Vimy and at Cambrai. Clifford Scott, who also returned on  the Asia, came in Tueaday.  Chaa. Hawes who had been expected, along with the rest Saturday, is staying for a while at Regina, but will be home ahortly.  General Mewburn hopea all  Canada's troops will be back by  Auguat.  A meeting of the K.A.A.C. will  be held on Thursday, Feb. 13, at  8 p.m. in the Board of Trade  Rooms. All members and all those  who wish to become members are  requeated to attend. It is hoped  that a large number of business  men will be present.  Important Changes in  Municipal Act  The most important bill to be  introduced this session waa laid  before the Provincial Houae Tuesday by the Attorney-General. Thia  is the new municipal act, in which  many radical changes affecting the  government of municipalities have  been introduced. The principal  feature is, perhaps, the provision  for the appointment of a local  government board" for the province which would have supervision over municipal bodies in respect to by-laws and public utilities  and in tbe sanctioning of extraordinary expenditures. All municipal  borrowings would be subject to  the approval of this provincial  body, which would have available  the most expert advice and authority. Many changes are also proposed in the system of assessment  (Orslllli I aa Ftsaa S.)  g  The Royal Bank of Canada is  opening a branch at Peachland.  Premises have been procured and  office will be open in a few days.  At the United church on Sunday  evening a musical service will be  given by the choir under the leader  ship ot Mr. H. Tod Boyd. The  service will include the anthems  "Praise Ye The Lord" (Elvey) and  "Pilgrims of the Night" (solo by  Mrs. Braden). In addition Mcs.  Jaa. Harvey will sing and Mr. Drury  Price will play.  $5.00for$4.00  And Every Dollar  Worth More.

OPEN THIRD SESSION OF PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE  Continual from  nass one.  Okanagan district has been purchased under the provisions of the  "Soldiers' Settlement Act" for the  benefit of returned soldiers, and  you will be asked for appropriations to "carry out development  work thereon.  A large area of crown lands has  been surveyed and reserved (or  the purpose of soldier settlement.  Provision also is being made to  acquire homesites within, or adjacent to, cities, and monies advanced by the Federal Government for  housing purposes will be utilized  to erect dwellings thereon. Legislation necessary for these purposes  will be placed before you.  A bill designed to encourage  stock breeding within the province  and providing for a comprehensive  grazing policy will be laid before  you for your consideration.  A measure will be introduced  granting relief in respect of timber  license fees to those engaged in  active naval or military service.  NEW INDUSTRIES  lt affords me pleasure to advise  you that during the past year agricultural production has increased  and new industries have been established within the province.  Eaily in the year my government  took effective steps to place the  timber resources of the province  at the convenient disposal of the  imperial authorities for war purposes. Extensive contracts for the  building of ships for both British  and foreign governments have been  entered into by shipbuilding firms.  My government has been active  in urging upon the Dominion government the necessity of completing the contractual obligation of  the Canadian Northern Railway  Company in'.respect of unfinished  work in British Columbia. As a  result of the representations made  the conatruction  of the Canadian  '^.oj[Lber5L��.a.ci^��_5a''wa5' on y��"-  couver Island is progressing, and it  is confidently expected that further  construction in other parts of the  province will be proceeded with  during the year.  Construction on the Pacific Great  Eastern is proceeding satisfactorily,  and it is the intention of my government to prosecute vigorously  further extension during the coming season.  Notwithstanding the comparatively amall appropriations for the  purpose, the department of Public  Works has effected the necessary  repairs to roads, trails and bridges.  EMERGENCY APPROPRIATION  You will be asked to consider  the advisability of voting on emergency appropriation for the purpose of providing employment  during the coming year in carrying  on development work of a productive nature.  I am pleased to advise you that  the value of mineral production (or  DOCTOR SAYS  VINOL IS IHE  BEST TONIC  Honest Opinion Doctor Gave  His Patient  Bedford, Ohio.���"I was in a pitiful  condition, weak, nervous and run  down so I could not do my housework.

The prospects for the coming year are encouraging. There  has been a decline in the production of placer gold, but the output  of lode gold has increased. It is  expected that the year 1919 will  show a marked increaae in this  class of mining. . The production  of coal has been very materially increased during the year and there  is a prospect that new coal areas  will be developed.  Amendments to the Coal Mines  Regulation Act will be placed before you for consideration.  Engineers appointed to investigate and encourage mining report  a feeling of optimism and confidence among operators and prospectors throughout the province.  A report dealing with the practicability of the electro-smelting of  British Columbia iron ores will be  laid before you.  It is proposed to submit for re-  enactment the Vancouver Island  Settlers' Rights Act (1904) Amendment Act (1917).  My government, through the hon,  the minister of education, has entered into an arrangement with  other western provinces for the  standardization of educational text  books.  AMEND PROHIBITION ACT  Necessary amendments to the  Prohibition Act will be laid before  you.  Legislation disfranchising military deserters and other persons  exempted from military service will  be submitted.  A bill to authorize the appointment of a Public Utilities Commission will be submitted for your consideration.  A bill for the establishment of a  Public Library Commission will be  submitted.  Protection from tax sales and  tor the further relief of returned  soldiers will be proposed in a bill  for. the extension of time for payment of taxes by returned soldiers.

You will be asked to consider a  bill providing for the superannuation of civil servants, and amendments to the Civil Service Act will  be submitted.  The public accounts for the past  fiscal year will be laid before you  at an early date.  The estimates of expenditure for  the coming year will be submitted  for your consideration.

Boy-  training and Bolshevism. He may  have had his faults���the Tsar; he  may have been a weak man, but at  any rate he was no bloody-minded  tyrant. He was merely the representative of a succession of autocratic rulers of Russia, and though  democratic self-government is a  consummation devoutly to be wished for as a rule, who can say, in  the light of recent history, that all  Russia was yet ripe for it > It is  difficult for us in our little island to  realise the strange contrast of peoples there, and how wide is the  varielv of different tribes, half of  them Asiatic, and in many parts  two hundred vears behind the times.  It is not, perhaps, generally realised  that Nicholas himself was both  sympathetic and alive to this. In  him the people had a better friend  than probably they knew. One  aim he had in view was to build  up eventually a modern nation  capable of self-government, ar d  of developing the immense resources of the country. But he  realized that thie was not a matter  of a moment; that as a first step  education on more up-to-date lines  was essential, even though traditional methods were upset in bringing it about. He was not too proud  to look abroad and aee what other  folk were doing.  One day he heard the story of  the feckless and the persevering  frogs who fell into the cream. This  attracted him to read the book in  which it is told, namely, " Scouting  for Boys." Then the writer, was  sent for to explain the scheme. In  an ordinary quiet little study I had  a long and quite informal talk with  the Tsar alone. He had fully grasped the possibilities of the Scout  training for education up to date,  and he saw the meaning underneath thc woodcraft and activities  which gave free play to the individual on the line of self-discipline  and service for others.  He explained how the existing  system in Russia was to educate  the boys as military cadets. The  schoolhouse was a barrack ; the  masters ranked aa officers; the discipline was that of the army���and  pretty stiff at that. No individuality was permitted to the boys ; no  games or practises that might develop their character from within  Their schooling waa a round of  instruction imposed from without.  This, the Tsar felt, was not a way  in which to bring a nation up-to  date, nor to meet the growing in  stinct for liberty of thought and  action. He saw a road to this in  Scouting He had, therefore, had  the book translated into Russian  and had invited all the achools to  try the training on their boya. By  way of encouraging this he had  agreed personally to review the  first school which passed its test  in Scoutcraft. This happened to  be away in the Crimea, but the  boys were brought up all the way  to Petrograd by sp-cial train, to be  inspected and to receive his praise-  What a day for them.

He felt the difficulty might be to change the spirit  with the form of education, and  for success this was essential. Aa  he saw it cadet training waa form  without soul, whereas that of  Scouting appeared to be the free  expression of the right individual  apirit on the part of the boy. He  had grasped the idea himself, but  whether the schoolmasters had  done ao was anothej question. He  waa at any rate sufficiently impressed by the value of Scouting to  make his own son take it up.  8YN0P8I8 OF COAL aONING  REGULATIONS  Coal raiaias Isskts s* aaa Basaisrsaala 1  iteka, HsssaftYaw aad iibwte.. js�� *i  ortioa  mt ba  r. taa Nortsmat ���sssUsrsatV. aaa)  it tits Fnrtaaa al Uitka L'olsas  _ ataasl lac a tarns al itcaati-oas rrr  laaaaaauoa lot tks tees star* ta rasas  aartSrifi juntkkttir&s'  aasaoJ sas  lis* krr aet  rata) epulis* lot a  rinllsaat  H  Taa pereoe rsetsatil     .           stems    skall   la tiiraittol at beet asaa  ks sales at tka east al SIS aa aara.  >. v. cam.

Owing to numerous complaints  which have lately been received,  the police authorities have given  notice that bicycle riding on the  sidewalks is to stop. The muddy  state of aome of the roada caused  the by-law prohibiting thia to be  disregarded somewhat, and offenders winked at. Thia leniency has  been taken advantage of to an unnecessary extent, however, and  pedestrians ate constantly under  fhe necessity of hastily jumping  into the road or into the fence to  avoid being run into by some  scorching cyclist. Some of these  even go so far as to ring their  bells and expect people to get out  of the way at once. Thia is carrying indulgence too far, and aa the  agitation haa been started the police  have no option but to enforce the  law strictly.  o   Many Guests Attend  Casorso Wedding  An interesting wedding took  place last Thursday when Mr. Leo  Casorso, the seventh son of Mr.  and Mrs. John Ctuprao, of Pioneer  Ranch, Kelowna, waa married to  Miss Marion J. Prowse, daughter  of the late C. C. Prowse. of Glenmore, and Mrs. Prowse, now of  Boston. The ceremony took place  at the Catholic Church, at 6.30 a.m.  Rev. Father Verbeke officiating.  There was a very large attendance  at the church of friends both of the  bride and groom. The bride was  prettilv attired in white silk, and  waa attended by Miss McPhie, of  Glenmore, as bridesmaid. Mr.  Peter Casorso, brother of the groom  acted as best man.  Dinner was served at the ranch  at 4 p.m. at which 125 guests were  present. The Caaorao family is  one of the foremost and most re  spected of the pioneer families of  the district, and all parta of the  valley were rep.esented at the  gathering. The many handsome  presents displayed testified to the  esteem in which the bride and  groom were held.  After dinner the evening was  given up to the enjoyment of music,  dancing and games, while a pro.  gramme of songs, recitations, and  violin selections was given. The  party broke up in the email hours  of the morning, and it is certain  that the guests will long retain  pleasant recollections of the generous hospitality of the Casorso  family.
