 Itotri  VOL. V.  NO. 33.  KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, JULY 10, 1913.  $1,50 Per Annum.  Meeting  of  City Council  Council Asked to Give Site  for Armoury  The council meeting held on Friday  was attended by Aldermen Calder, Co-  sens, Copeland and Thompson in addition to the mayor.  Tho report of the building inspector  Mr. J. A. Biggar was received for (he  first six months af the current   year  as follows:  Dear Sirs,���  From January 1st to June 30th,  there huve been granted 114 building  permits, aa against 67 during the corresponding months of 1912.  The building, an classed us follows:  Besidencss 1107,466  Business Blocks 101,033  Miscellaneous ��� ���      ��8,466  Total .377,643  being a net gain of 147 per oent over  the first six months of last year.  In Woodlawn and other subdivisions  adjoining the city ,30,000 Would be  a conservative estimate of buildings  erected and now under construction  whioh would make a grand total of  $307,463.  Some of the most prominent buildings arc tbe Kelowna Central School  building, ths Willits block, the Casorso block and the Canadian Bank of  Commerce.  I may add that the approximate estimates given is in nearly every case  from 20 to 40 per cent., below ths  real   oost. Respectfully submitted1,  J. A. BIUUAK.  Building   Inspector.  Ths report was commented upon st  being extremely creditable to thc oily  and an excellent evidence ol prosperity. It was pointed out by the mayor  that th* 1'iuanciol Times showed  Kelowna to be the highest plaoed oity  in the list of building for Western  Canada and the second highest in the  whole dominion in the latest statistical record.  Major Clarke appeared to discuss  with th* oouuoil the matter of the  proposed armory referred to last week.  Hs stated that the government was  prepared to ereot an armory provided  that the city authorities would give a  site; the building would compare in  size with the new edifice at Vernon,  its oost might be anything from fourteen to twenty thousand dollars and  its size would probably be about 120  feet long by 1(0 or CO wide. It would  be used prinmriiy as an armory and  drill hall and il conveniently situated  oould bs used by the cadets and boy  scouts.  Its equipment would include gymna-  stio appliances and it might bs used  for dances provided they were in (id  of charity, the rant in such coses being merely nominal!-'  The olork was requested to enter into correspondence with the minister of  militia with a view to getting details  of size of building and the ground it  would occupy.  The mayor pointed out to Major  Clarke that the only three po Uons of  land at ths disposal <of the oity ware  the park, the exhibitjlom grounds and  the sewage ground (llaitghter.) The  exhibition grounds hnjrt appealed most  suitable because ths II, 0. Hon*, who  would use th* drill hall most would  find it convenient to their mounted parade ground.  Major Clarke ' observed that such  proximity was of no oonsequenoo in  tho case of tbe mounted troops who  could easily ride a mil s or so to i heir  drill area: hs thought the only possible place was the park and the eity  might rout assured tlhat the government would only erect suoh a building  an would be an ornamttnt to the park.  The corner of the park- bordered by  Abbott, street' and the oreek wae then  suggested and considered a suitable  spot. Major Ctarie in support of his  view pointed out that it would.be urn-  desirable for oadete, for instance to  have to traverse the length of JQlie  street to the exhibition grounds at  night; he added that the proposed  building would alscit inolude a miniature shooting range i.  The mayor closed the discussion by  stating that the city would give a  good Bite if they \ fere satisfied as to  ths nature 'and ap pearonoe of the armory and he tequi Mted tha clerk to  correspond witt. O ll. Hughes wttfa    a  view to obtaining details of what the  department proposed to erect.  It was proposed bo Alderman Calder  and^Alderman Cosens that tbe assessment roll for 1913 as presented by the  assessor Mr. P. T. Dunn' be accept**!.  Carried1.  It was moved by Alderman Thompson and Alderman Copeland that a  Court of Revision be held for hearing  and determining! any complaints  against the assessment on Monday,  Aug. 11, at 10 a.m.  A report was received in connection  with the prevalence of thistles. Alderman Copeland said that if all thietiVs  were cut down in their green stage  tho stalks (which were hollow) would  fill with wuter und the roots would lie  destroyed in addition to which the  scedswould not mature and blow about  whereas if the weeds were left until  they flowered it would then be too  late to prevent dissemination by cutting for the soeds would continue to  mature after' connection with the root  had been severed.  A long list of property affected with  thistles was produced showing ownors  of the same und it was deemed advisable to' tali,- .-iteji.'i to ensure the extermination of this noxious weed.  Alderman Calder reported that he  had visited the ('.P.R. agent in reference to putting a colored light on the  wharf for the guidance ol belated small  craft on the lake; it was explained,  however, that the wharf which had  been discussed in this connection at  the last meeting wos the ferry wharf  lis being moro generally usod for small  boats.  On the subjects of lights it was  stated that the colored bulbs along  the purk side walk were,-dim, and had  not been renewed since lust season.

Somo doubt hasfoaa  felt locally as lo whether arrangements oould be made for the trip up  the valley and it was feared that, a  smaller affair would have to lie got  up in a hurry al Kelowna to accommodate the points down lhe lake, J.ul  almost at the last moment, the C.P.K.  have announced their willingness to run  the excursion, and there will no doubt  be a large number of people participate  from Kelowna, Summerland, Peachland  and Penticton.  The departure from Kolowna on tin  12th, which is next Saturday, will be  by the "Okanagan" which will probably arrive at the wharf a little earlier than usual. The rest of the journey will 1*. by train to Kndorby. For  lhe return trip the "Okanagan" ' will  remain at the Landing, the "Aberdeen'  making the usual schedule trip down  in the afternoon.  The loyal members of Enderby are  making extensive preparations for the  entertainment of their visitors and ��  programme of sports, etc., will 1�� in  eluded in thu dav's amusements.  Local Oddfellows Instal  Officers  Once more our baseball boys drank  from the bitter cup of defeat yesterday  at Vernon. The game, however was a  good game with the exception of the  third inning whon the VernoniteB secured four runs by bunching hits and  some loose fielding on the part of the  Kelowna team. Kelowna presented' a  changed line up in ihis game and the  now men worked nicely at the first  and third corners, and when the whole  team have been together and worked  together on the diamond for a week  or so and become familiar with each  other's stylo of play the local aggregation will be a hard nut to crack.  The new material on the team has ad-  Jed much strength to tho hitting and  resterd.iy Williams, who so far has  proved so hard for the local players to  hit found his task much harder and  everybody got busy with the stick and  hit hard, the Vernonites Holding saved  several good hits. However Kelowna  registered six hits while Vernon got  oight, bul the latter were lucky in getting them in a bunch while the Kelowna hits were scattered. The game  closed with the score 5 to 1 in favor  of Vernon.  According to reports ihe Revolatoko  team handed Kamloops lhe most decisive beating of the season at Revelstoke yesterday, the score being, according to a wire reoeived in Vernon  wns 26 to 5.  Owing to lack of time and space lasL  week we reluctantly omitted to mention the baseball games played by the  local aggregation'. On Thursday tlie  boys of the Orchard City suffered de-  foat at the hand's of thi. Revelstoke  team by a score of 5 to 0.  On July 2nd the local baseball team  journeyed down tho lake to Penticton  whone they played two of the beet  games of ball ever witnessed in tho  valley. They defeated Oroville, Wash.,  iu- the forenoon by a score of 1 to 0,  nnd in the afternoon suffered defeat by  the same score at tho hands of the  Pen Wet on team, which was reinforced  by outside players. Henning being unable to accompany the team loft a  weak spot ib) the box which was filled1  in by Purdy and Tait respectively.  The baseball game at Kamloops last  week between Vernon and Kamloops,  went only fivo innings, the score at  that stage being 0���0. A dispute arose  as to a decision of the umpire and  others beside the players took part.  The result was that Manager Eastman  of the Vernon club was put unj-ter arrest and the game called off. The fault  however, according to our Kamloops  exchange was not Eastman's but the  outsiders who "butted-in."  The following program will  ba ren  dered at tbe park tomorrow evening:  Orange Feather.  "Kountf the World." ....

In ths memorandum attached to th* awasun, it  is stated that the Swiss government,  in November, 1910, at the instance of  the International Congress of Chambers of Commerce held in London in  June, 1910, agreed to take steps for  an international diplomatic conference  on the subject of fixing Easter and  otherwise reforming the calendar. The  British government and other European powers had, it was understood,  ixpressed willingness to take part in  such a conference.  The bill is intended as a basis for  an Imperial conference on the subject,  and it proposes that the first of the  year should be a bank holiday sailed  New Year Day, but not be a day of  the week or of the month or quarter.  This leaves for the rest of the year  364 days, which divide into te*r equal  quarters of exactly 13 weeks, dWiowl  into two months of 30 days such and  one of 31 days. Starting in 1914, Salter Sunday and all ths moveable Inste.  feasts, and dntes dependant upon it  would be fixed so as to fall rn every  year on the same day of ths same  month, as well as on the same day  of thu weok. April 12 would, it is pio-  posed, then nnd always be Easter Sunday. Christmas Day, December 25th,  would always be on Wednesday. "I'.ncli  day of tho month would always fall  on the aamo day of the week. To provide for leap year, one other bank  holiday, to be called Leap Year Day,  would in leap year be inserted between  June 31 and July 1. It would not be  a day of the week, month or quarter.  74  76  ���+���  Jaok London, the author, is in a  California hospital' where he will undergo an operation for appendioitis.

All are wel  Merchants Association  and Credit  At the meeting of the Kelowna Her-  ehants Association last night the subject of giving oredit to "slow payers''  was again discussed. For a long time  it has been felt that some combined  action should be taken to atop the increasing burden of bad debts and the  doubtful accounts with whioh the merchants have to contend, and steps are  being taken which will help to reduce  (hose to a minimum.  The need of legible signs at the corners of the streets was also bronght  up, and a resolution passed' lhat the  council be urged to provide the^e. The  assistance of the Hoard of Trade was  invoked in pressing tho matter upon  (he oounoil.   _|   Cnuding is in progress at the end  of Pendozi street, being the extreme  north end of tho new lake-shore road.  The widening of the road through  Okanagan Mission from the tennia  . ourts to the Bellevue Hotel is now  being carried on and will prove of  great benefit when properly completed1.  A new ^telephone has been added to  the line at Okanagan Mission and' installed at the residence of Dr. Wans-  1'orough Jones, the number being 23 U.  A considerable portion of Pentloton's  inhabitants will be visiting Kelowna  rext Thursday. The occasion Is the  picnio conneotcd with tho Sunday  ichools, and it is expected that about  300 children, besides a host of parents  and friends will take part in the excursion.

Hereron is having another large hay barn built on his  ranch, in order that the crop (one of  tne largest he has had) may bo secured against damage by the,elements,  thereby ensuring Mb customers the  very best grade of hay. The barn,  which is being constructed id hold 125  tons' of hay is 100 feet long, 54r feet  wide and 31 foet high. Mr. G. A. Bowser, tho contractor, expects to have  the building completed by the end of  the week. This is Mr. Horeron's second  barn built specially for storing hay,  whilst Mr. J. Christian and Mr. H.  (".eon also possess large barns built  oxpressly for storing their share of  Canada's largest crop.   1   J. Chamberlain 77 Years Old  Rt. Hon.

Tho synod for th.  election of the now biahop will be as-  aembleil in thc autumn, and it is hoped thnt tho new diooeee will be in ao*  tive work in the beginning of the new  year.   ���   Airship Manufacture Not  Profitable  Despite th. large subsidies granted by  the German government to the Zeppelin eompany, the balance sheet from  her last tiacal year shows a loss of  8378,000, a aum representing half the  firm's capital. The loss is explained by  tho long list of disaster, thai have  occurred to tho various airships planned by the veteran, Count Zeppelin.  Incidentally, the price of a Zeppelin  airship haa doubled in the last two  years, having risen from 8125,000 to  NSQ.000.   ���   Using dynamite as a substitute for  firecrackers, some men at Nakusp,  whose identity provincial police are endeavoring to asoertain blew the corner  off the house of D. T. Bulgtsr, shipyards superintendent, and tore- a huge  hole in the ground during a Fourth of  Tuly celebration. Ur. Bulger and wife  had left the house a few moment* before tlie explosion, whioh wae caused  by several sticks of dynamite. The police believe the explosion was the result of a drunken prank.  Hon. Martin Burrell, minister of agriculture, haa appointed a oommiaaion  to enquire into the poasibility of holding a national live stock show on thte  linea of that at Chicago. The following  are the members of tho commission'  Mr. .lohn Bright, live atock oomiuis  aionerH Dr. Creamer, western representative of tho live stook branch, and Dr.  Tolmie of Britiah Columbia. It is  thought that| later an eastern member may be appointed.

It is to Ije hoped that the  tt.'sidents und lot owners will co operate with the street committee in this  good work. With fertile soil in which  ull kinds of shade trees grow to perfection and which in u't the same time  idvjt-1 for lawns there is no good tea  .-.on why one little town hy the lake  should not become as famous fur the  baaivty of its hoiuul and t..cu' tnitTOUU-  dings aa it now is for its charming  situation, its scenery and its orchards.  But no matter how much care and  attention may be given to individual  homes, if the streets ure ilil kept, lhe  sidewalks out ol repair, vacun. lots  weed grown and buildings unpuintiil.  ihe general' effect is bad and the well  kept  home  nerves   only   to  emphanize  tho defects of the whole.  It is to oorrOof these evils lhat in  many towns associations of oil./ens  have been formed for (he express purpose of cultivating a taste for the  beautiful and of improving local' con-  flit ions. In most eases these have  been productive of the greatest good.  Interest in things beautiful has been  aroused, the practical result nf which  is seen in elo.ui streets, cleaner lanes,  better kept lawns, well painted buildings, more trees and, above all, ne.il  thier and happier people.  Irrigation Works in Northern  India  Th* greatest enterprise ever undertaken hy British Irrigation engineer*.,  the Lower Bari Doab ('anal, in the  Punjab has just been completed, and  it.-* opening makes a landmark in the  wonderful and romantic story of Indian irrigation. The engineering supplement of the London Time*, contains  an aceount of the eomplotion of thin  third-and last seotion of the "Triple  <'aiiat Project" which is now irrigating vaat areas in tho Punjab.  Ths Lower Bari Donb Canal is nn  usual in construction, for it actually  crosses, upon ft level, the important  rivsr Ravi. The new onnal has DOtt  about one and a half millions sterling  and it i-, expected that it will irrigate  ovtr 871,000 acres of crops. The C'he-  nah Canal, which is another section  of tht Triple Project atone irrigat<��H an  area equivalent to two-thords ol the  wIioU cultivated area af Egypt. The  gnat Punjab canals have done more  for they have literally peopled the  desert wastes. The cultivators have  been established in (listrids which  were formerly quite Dtsbass, Their village! are thriving, their I,ind is growing in value, and for them the desert  sands havo indeed proven golden. The  Triple Project cost close to 67(000*-  000 but it yields to the government  a return upon capital outlay of 7\  per cent. Yet H means affluence to  the peasantry altO, and life in the canal colonies in so popular .among the  Stalwart men of Northern India that  the development of irrigation is seriously affecting recruiting for the native army.

The territory purchased by the company is to  be stocked with tmiskrat, skunk and  mink and later on it is intended to  include the breeding of foxes in the  foxes in the industry.  An Edmonton fur company is suit!  to have paid more than $10,000 for  el*.-en fox skins this spring. A recent  shipment included one pure black fox  skin, valued at 81,500 und three handsome pelts, traced with silver, said  to be worth 82,500.

Tlie peculiar fascination ot Crustacea consists largely In the extraordinary variety of bizarre forms whioh  they have assumed under the preaeura  (so to speak) of their environment ���  Infinite variation! on much the aama  theme of Joints and lega. 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 haa had to play  some queer pranks with them to equip  them for the very varied situations  ln life ln which we find; them ���  exaggerating or diminishing out ot  all sense ot proportion (according to  our Ideas of congrulty) a limb here,  a joint or serleB of Joints then;  tucking one part ot the body under  another; flattening Into a plate la  one case, drawing out Into a mere  thread In another; and thus and In  other ways giving rise to the quaintest series of forms to be met with ln  the animal kingdom.

Residence three doors south  oi new Engliah Chuch.  Workshop and  office opposite New School,  A LIGHTNING I'HKNOMENOJf  Reports of the occurrence of  globular or ball lightning during recent severe thunderstorms ln Bur-  ope have again drawn attention  to this rare and Blngular electrical  manifestation. Half a century ago tha  reality of this phenomenon was much  doubted, but the gradual accumulation of trustworthy evidence has now  thoroughly demonstrated Its actual  existence. The records agree In  describing the appearance as that of  a luminous ball, generally of a bluleh  colour, and varying In dlametor from  a few Inches to as much as three feet.  The sphere haa a sluggish motion,  either falling slowly from the clouda  or drifting over the surface of tha  ground, the movement always being  such as to give the Impression that  the thunderbolt Ib of material heavier  than air. It remains visible for Beveral  ���econds or even minutes, and as a  rule finally explodes with great  violence. The disappearance Is generally followed by a strong smell of  oione ln the locality. During tha  period of visibility the ball often be-  havea ln an extremely peculiar manner. Sometimes It seems propelled  along horlsontally by a feeble air current or by electric forces. Frequently It has been seen to follow tha  course of a conductor, .inch as a water  main, and It almost always explodes  on coming Into contact with a sheet  of water such aa a pond or stream.  The Immense store of energy which  the hall undoubtedly contains Is evidently not held In the shape of a  surface electric oharge, as It Is not  destroyed hy contact with ordinary  conductors. ThuB the ball may touch  earth, pass down a chimney, traverse  a room, and bo on, without being dissipated, although It has thus had  abundant opportunity of giving up  any surface charge of electricity. It  Is Indeed this very tenacity of exlet-  ence which has ln the paBt caused  certain physlclBta to be rather sceptical of the phenomenon, while so far  et least all attempts to produce analogous appearancea experimental!/  have been entirely unsuccessful.  Stinging Trees  In the southern part of Formosa  grows a tree, about 10ft. In height,  having long leaves which possess the  property of the nettle, and produce  a maddening Irritation of the skin  when Incautiously touched. The  natives call It chlao-Jen-kou, moaning  "man-bltlng-dog." Mr. Tokutaro Ito,  of Toklo, who has recently made a  botanical exploration In Formosa, suggest!! the name "viper tree" as a mora.  distinctly warning title. There la  another species of "stinging tree" In  Australia, which attains a height of  15 feet, and the effect of whose touch  appears to be even more maddening  to men and animals. Humes Btung by  It have to be shot, and dogs, when  affected by the poiaon of the leaves,  run about whining and biting thera-  I elves.  ��ft    -_   Spiders' Threads In Astronomy.  The cultivation for sclenttfle mtm  cf certain species of spiders, solely  for tha fine threads they weave, has  an Important hearing upon aBtronomy.  No substitute for the spider's thread  hsa yet been found for bisecting the  acrew of tha micrometer used for  determining tha positions and motions  cf the .tars. Not only because of  the remarkable fineness of the  threads are thay valuable but because  of their durable qualities. The threads  of certain spiders raiaed for astronomical purpoae* withstand ohanges In  tomperatura, ao that often in measuring aun ipota thay are uninjured  when the heat Is ao great that tha  lenses of the micrometer eyepieces are  cracked. Theae spider lines aro only  one fifth to one-seventh of a thousandth of an inch In diameter, compared with which the threads of tha  silkworm are large and olumay.  PLAY WITH DEATH  m*  Men Who Are Reckless In Handling High Explosives.  STORIES BY HUDSON MAXIM.  The Aocld.nt by Which th* Inventor'.  Left Hand Was Blown Off-John Bander's Contempt For Dynamite���Mixing Fin and Nltronlyosrin.  "It is practically impossible," write*  Hudson Maxim ln Adventure, "ta  make the ordinary laboring man appreciate tbe necessity of care in the  Mff handling of explosives, and the  life of the careful man Is alwaya endangered by the notions of the careless one.  "After I had sold tbe works at Maxim and had Invented uiotorlte 1 needed  a place ln which to make the material  and hired n brauch of tbe works there  for that purpose. It wns winter. My  wife had accompanied me as a precautionary measure. She was Bitting  ln tbe laboratory to keep warm, near  ��� big barrel stove charged with bituminous coal.  "On entering tbe laboratory for  something my wife asked me what  was ln those two tin palls sitting near  the stove. Sbe said that sbe had a  suspicion It might be .nltrogylycerln,  and she Informed me that one of my  men bad Just been ln stirring the fire  and that tbe sparks flew out In all directions, some of them lighting ln the  buckets to be qnenched on top of the  ���tly liquid.  " 'Uorrars!' I said. 'It Is nitroglycerin I'  "I called the man who had placed It  there and told him to take It away. An  It was necessary to keep tbe material,  from freezing be took It Into the boiler house near by. A little later on, going Into the boiler house, 1 saw one of  the men stirring the fire while the other was standing with his conttalla outstretched ln either band, forming a  shield to keep the sparks from flying  into the nitroglycerin.  "In the manufacture of high explosives nnd ln experimenting with them  a little absentmlndednesB, a very  ���light lack of exact caution, a seemingly insignificant Inadvertence for a  moment, may cost one a limb or his  life. The accident that cost me my  left band Is a case ln point  "On the day preceding that accident  I bad had a gold cap put on a tooth.  In consequence the tooth ached  throughout the night and kept me  awake a greater part of the time. In  tbe morning I rose early and went  down to my factory at Maxim, N. J.  In order to test the dryness of aome  fulminate compound I took a little  piece of it, about the size of an English penny, broke off a small particle,  placed it on a stand outside the laboratory and, lighting a match, touched  It off.  "Owing to my loss of sleep the night  before my mind was not so alert aa  usual, and I forgot to lay aside the  remaining piece of fulminate compound, but Instead held It ln my left  band. A spark from the Ignited piece  of fulminate compound entered my  left hand between my Angers, igniting  the piece there, with the result that  my hniid was blown off to the wrist  "Once when entering my storage  niiicnzine at Maxim, ln which were  Severn I carloads of dynamite along  with 37.000 pounds of nltrogelatm, I  saw John Bender, one of my employees, calmly but emphatically opening  a case of dynamite with a hammer  and a chisel. I promptly discharged  blm.  "Not long afterward the Innkeeper  nt Farmlngdale called on tne to buy  some dynamite and aaid he had engaged Render to blow the stumps ont of  bis meadow lot. r told him Bender  wns courting death for himself and  everybody around wiicn handling dynamite, but Boniface still wanted  Render to do tbe work.  "'Well,' said I. 'the dynamite yea  want is IR cents n pound, but If John  Bender does not succeed tn blowing  himself up and killing himself with  thc dynamite you can have It for nothing. On the other hand, If he does  blow himself up yoii..mnst pay far the  dynamite.'  "A few dayR Inter-there wm saane  bltcb ln Bender's em-eptlonai luck. A  particularly refractory old stump had  resisted a couple of Bwider's dynamic  attacks. Tbe failure to dislodge tb*  stump Bender took aa a personal affront because It reflected upon hia atdU  as a stump blaster.  ���"Next time,' said be, 'something a.  COlng to happen.' Be placed about  twenty pounds of dynamite under the  deep rooted veteran, touched It off, and  icveral things happened ln very quick  nuccession. The huge stump let go It*  bold on earth and proceeded to bant  Bender.,' ���.  "It was a level rare, but the stamp  t.on. Striking Bender on tbe north  quarter, It stove In four ribs, dislocated several joints smd damaged him ta  several other respect* aniil particulars.  Boniface came to- settle for the dynamite  "'Sixteen cents a pound,' I anM.  ���Bender hasn't a chance ln a hundred.  Watt Ull tbe doctors, are through wltfe  aim.'  "'What do yon My to a compso-  udse.' suggested It. ��lf nee, 'of 8 cents a  pound? For, really, I do not heller*  that Bender la more than half dead.'  And the account waB settled on that  basis." _.  Kind words ar��. the brightest of  jobic flowers. Thisy mrike a paradlM  ���j the humblest tuna*.
