 VOL. IV.   NO. 35.  KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY,  JULY 25, 1912.  $ 1.50 Per Annum.  Meeting of  City Council  City's Assessment Reaches  3i Millions  The council met Monday morn  ing, Mayor Jones presiding, and  Aid. Sutherland, Copeland, Ray,  mer, Blackwood, and Taylor pie>  sent.  A letter was read from the secretary of the Fire Brigade asking  the council to purchase the follow,  ing supplies: Catching net, six  strong clnms, 4 railroad lanterns  a mattress. 20 pairs overalls, and a  drinking dipper.  It was desided to get further in  formalion respecting the catching  net. and a resolution was passed  authorizing purchase of the rest,  subject to approval of the committee.  An application was read from  Mr. Geo. Rowcliffe to put a weighing platform on the street near his  new packing shed. This was  granted.  Plans of subdivisions from F. M,  Buckland and Crowley & Co. were  passed.  Dr. Dickson, local  secretary  of  Irrigation Convention wrote as follows ������  The City Clerk,  Dear Sir:���In connection with  the forthcoming Irrigation Convention, August 13th 16th would you  kindly bring before the city council at their next meeting, the advisability of having the city made  as clean and attractive as possible  by having the grass, weeds, etc. cut  on the streets, by having arrangements made for special watering  of the streets, and also by illuminating the streets and park in the  most attractive manner possible  during these dates. It has been  suggested that an arch erected in  a prominent position and decorated  with fruit, vegetables and banners  would be an attractive feature. If  the council approve of this and  will allow the help of some necessary labor, Mr. F. R. E. DeHart  has offered to see to the decorating  -oi the arch. The matter will involve some expense and I do not  not want to undertake it without  the approval of-the council.  Yours truly,  C W. DICKSON.  The Board of Works was charged  with the duty of cleaning up the  streets, and the light committee  promised to take up the matter of  illumination.  The suggestion of an arch however, did not meet with so much  favor.  Aid Sutherland said that personally he was opposed to erecting an  arch as he thought them hideous  things except in the case of a military parade.  Mayor Jones agreed with the  idea of having a display of fruits,  etc., but he thought it should be*|  placed in some suitable building.  He thought the stores should endeavor to decorate a much as possible.  Mr, Ernest Clement asked tne  council what they intended doing  about extending the water mains  in the direction of his house.  Three months ago he had made  application and had got fifteen  other householders to do the same.  He had been assured that the pipe  would be laid, but so far as he  knew nothing had been done.  Aid, Sutherland said that> all  such applications were taken in  order received. In this case a start  had been made on the extension  but the pipe had run out and until  they had got a fresh supply they  could not go on with it.  Application was made by Mr. D.  Leckie to place building material  on the street in front of his store.  This was granted.  Scoutmaster Legatt waited on the  council respecting the application  to have an open an* rifle range for  the boys near Pendozi street.  Mayor Jones, said he had not  heard of the matter until Saturday  when he arrived home, but he understood that considerable opposition had been raised by people in  the locality named.  Aid. Sutherland said that quite  an excitement had been worked up  over it, and there was strong opposition.  Aid. Raymer thought that such  a range would be a source of danger to the public. He did not see  how the council could grant permission anyway without amending  the by-law covering the matter.  Aid. Taylor did not agree as to  the danger to the public. If the  boys were properly trained, the  vicinity of the range would be as  safe as being in church.  Aid. Raymer, however had no  such faith even in Boy Scouts, and  feared they might grow careless.  Mr. Legatt was informed that the  council could not grant permission  as the by-law stood. He was advised to try and get a range out  side the city, the north being Bug  gested.  Mr. T. Cooper, the city assessor  waited on the council. He said  that owing to some extra work that  had turned up and certain necessary information which they lacked  concerning the lands outside the  city assep^ed for school purposes,  he had been unable to bring in the  complete roll as promised. He  undertook, however, to have it in  within a week.  A resolution was necessary extending the time for receiving the  roll to July 29th, and this was  passed.  For the information of the council Mr. Cooper said that the complete assessment for this vear  would be, on land values, $2,499,  200, and on improvements, $845  750. Notices, he said were being  sent out to tax payers.  Some discussion arose on ihe  city's finances, Aid. Taylor giving  a rough estimate of what the probable income and expenditure ot  thevcity would be, but definite consideration of the matter was left  until the estimates from the various  committees were in.  Aid. Sutherland foretold, in spite  of reduced rates and heavy expenses, a probable surplus on the  water and light department of  $2,000.  Aid. Copeland, (whose praiseworthy energy on the Board of  Works and street improvements,  although accomplishing more and  better work than in any previous  year, has caused no little anxiety to  the finance committee) received a  rude shock on being told that out  of a probable $9,000 available for  street work, $6,350 had already  been spent. As the worthy alderman reflected on the amount of  work still to do,' his consternalion  became very apparent.  Aid. Sutherland announced that  an exchange had been arranged  with Mr. A. McLennan for a portion of the lot purchased for a  pumping station, which would give  the citv a much more convenient  location. The exchange was em-  bodied in the following resolution :  " That the city purchase from the  Kelowna Land & Orchard Co., Lot  9, Block 2, Map 186, for sewerage  pumping plant at the price of $900;  that the south 250 feet of this lot  he exchanged for that part of Lot  2, Block 2, Map 1867 north of the  south 250 feet thereof, as per letter from Mr. A. McLennan.  Aid. Sutherland asked if the city  had had any letter from the Board  of Trade in reference to the inspection of meat, as a resolution bearing on the matter had been passed  at the last meeting af the Board of  Trade.  No letter had been sent, but a  resolution was put through that the  city solicitor be authorized to prepare a bylaw respecting the inspection of meat and milk.  Aid. Copeland said the butchers  should be compelled to have covered rigs to protect meat from sun  and dust. Respecting milk he  would not like to see the council  go the length of Vernon which had  practicallly prohibited people from  keeping a cow and selling an extra quart of milk.  Aid. Sutherland stated that the  people on the west side of the lake  had been asking the council to cooperate with them in having the  telegraph nnd telephone extended  in that direction. He thought that  something might be done to hasten matters.  In discussion it was mentioned  that a petition had been presented  early in the year while the Legislature was in session, and every  assistane was promised. It was a  matter of considerable importance  to Kelowna business men that communication be established with  points over the lake, as only by  that means could their business be  drawn here. The city could not  afford to neglect such a matter.   It  was thought that if the city council  passed a strong resolution asking  for the extension it would have  some weight. A resolution was  accordingly passed as follows:  " That the Dominion Government  be asked to extend the government  telegraph service from Kelowna Id  the West Side of Okanagan Luke,  extending in a northerly direction  and that the government's attention  be called to the immediate necessity of said service being extended-  Aid. Raymer called attention  again to the Canadian thistles  which were being allowed to flourish undisturbed in various parts of  the city.  The meeting then adjourned.  Obituary  Mrs. A. Dunn, Wife of New  Presbyterian Minister  The sad news of the death at  Fernie of Mrs. Dunn, the wife ol  the Rev. A. Dunn, the lately appointed minister of the Presbyterian church was received in town  Tuesday with the greatest regret  more especially by the members  of the church, who have been  looking forward to Mrs. Dunn's  arrival with pleasant anticipations.  The death of Mrs. Dunn, although  sudden enough to people here,  was not entirely unexpected to  those who knew the circumstances.  Along with her family of three  young children she was staying  for a while with her sister in Fernie, prior to joining he. husband in  Kelowna. She was not in good  health and a few weeks ago became worse, an operation becoming necessary. The Rev. Mr.  Dunn was wired for last Thursday  and left at once. News at first  was encouraging and to the effect  that Mrs. Dunn was improving, but  a relapse evidently took place and  in a brief telegram to Mr. J. Ball  the announcement of her death'  was made. The greatest sympathy  is extended to Mr. Dunn in his  bereavement.  It is the intention of Mr. Dunn  to take the remains east to Guelph.  the deceased lady's former home,  for interment.  The pulpit at the Presbyterian  church will be occupied Sunday  morning next by Mr. Geo. E. Boyer,  and in the evening by Mr. D. C.  Herron, minister in charge of  Benvoulin.  Price of Cement  The following extract (roin the  " Province " seems to call for some  explanation in view of the announcement made by the Canada Cement Company a few weeks back.  The extract relates ar. interview  wilh the genera) manager of the  company at Winnipeg on Monday :  " " It's not making a bit of difference to us: we are going ahead  just as if nothing had happened."  said F. P. Jones, general manager  of the Canada Cement Co., last  evening when asked if the merger  had altered its policy as a result of  the recent reduction of the duty on  cement. Mr. Jones is at the Royal  Alexandra.  " Any one that doesn't think  that's right had better take a look  at the plant we are building three  miles out of here," he continued.  " As a matter of fact' the reduction  in the duty has not affected our  western business at all, and we did  not change our price in the slightest. We did lower our figure a little in the East and the maritime  provinces, and 1 understand some  of the other cement companys  there are hit pretty hard. But in  the West everything is as it was before. The charge that we were  putting ton high a price on our  cement is absurd. It has been and  is being sold at a lower figure than  ever before. We consider that  this action of the government has  demonstrated in the clearest possible fashion that the charge? of  extortion laid against us were  groundless, for the Americans are  not under-selling us in the West.  It was said last year that our price  in the West was the American  price, plus freight and duly. If the  Americans can sell so much cheaper than we, why don't they do it >"  Mr. Jones is going to Calgary  and Exshaw to inspect the extensions to the Canada Cement Co.'s  plants at those places.  Rutland News  Fnmi our own correspondent  Mr. J. Mclver is in the Kelowna  hospital surtering from a poisoned  hand, caused by a scratch from  wire fencing.  Mr. John Wattless, of Fort William, has been staying with his  brother-in-law, Mr. R. Bird, for the  past week. He is delighted with  the visible progress of Rutland  and hopes to be a permanent resident on his property next year.  The continued rain, although  welcome for the land, was the  cause of the small attendance at  the garden party last evening. It  was decided to spread the tables  in the church for fear of showers.  After a supper which suited everybody, a capital programme was  started, every number being well  received. The trio from town were  greatly appreciated,and Mr. Kelly's  Irish monologues kept one wondering at his slickness with words.  The following is the programme  in full :  Trio... Mars. Pedlar,Weeks & Wade  Solo  Miss Crowcroft  Recitation Miss A. Gay  Solo Evelyn Sproul  Monologue  Mr. Kelly  Instrumental Mrs. S. Gray  Solo Mr. Weeks  Speech Mr. Herron  Solo Miss Duggan  Solo Mr. Pedlar  Solo Mr. Gay  Lawn Tennis  The Bench Lawn Tennis Club  played their second match of the  season against a team from the  Okanagan Mission Sports club,  Owing to it being haying time,  neither club was fully represented.  The Bench Club won all their  matches, both in the single and  double events. During the afternoon Mrs. R. W. Pooley served tea  Which added very much to the enjoyment of a hot, but very pleasant  afternoon.  The following were  the scores:  Anderson and Garnett (Bench),  beat Stubbs and Thompson, 2-6,  6-3, 6-2 ; beat Bartholomew and  Gore-Brown, 6-4, 6-4.

Regatta Programme  Complete  August  7th and  8th will be  Big Days in Kelowna  McGill Matriculation  There were seven candidates  from the high school who entered  for the matriculation examination  in connection with McGill University.

The Kelowna Farmer's Exchange  has completed the building of a  branch in Armstrong, and shipping  from-there is in full swing.  Owing to the limited spare in  the pavilion during rega'ta, ticket  holders wishing to introduc s friends  for these dates must obtain special  admission tickets from tl e secretary beforehand. This jrivilege  is limited to two special ti -kets.  The committee of the Aqualic  Association Iwve had a busy time  lately preparing for the annual  Regatta, which is to take place  next Wednesday and Thursday  week, August 7th and 8th, and  arrangements are now well in hand.  It is always the desire of the  management to go one better than  previous years and if all goes well  this season's event will certainly  accomplish that.  There has been some difficulty  as usual in arranging excursions  with the C.P.R., but at last it has  been done, and on Wednesday an  excursion will run from the north,  and Thursday one from the south.  On the first day a lacrosse match  between Armstrong and Kelowna  will add to the attractions, whilst  the Vernon band has been engaged for both days. The four war  canoe races are reserved for the  second day.

Wrestling Match  Ends in Draw  The great wrestling match ON  ranged by the Fire Brigade boys  between Bob Sutherland and Pat  Connolly which took place before  a packed Opera I louse last I hurs-  day evening ended in a dray, one  fall going to the credit of each contestant,  As a preliminary to the big event  tlie two brothers Colin and Jack  McMillan were pitted against each  other in a wrestling match. Both  were powerful boys and would lie  no mean contestants if better trained.    Colin proved the vicior.  The audience were al o treated  to a boxing bout between Messrs.  Hogan and Peterson.  By the time the great match  came on the hall was packed and  some impatience began to be manifested for the appearance of the  rivals.  "Shorty" Woods acted as referee.  An unfortunate dispute marred  the match almost at the start.  After some 20 minutes' wrestling  a fall was given by the umpire to  Connolly which Sutherland at once  disputed. . This raised a storm  amongst the audience, and it seemed as though the meeting would  break up in disorder. Sutherland  and a large number of spectators  on the front rows held that his  shoulders had not touch(d ihe  mat. The referee stuck to his  decision and refused to act further.  Connolly finally'ayreed to disregard  the fall and recommence the  match on the same terms as before.  II. Small was secured as referee  and a fresh start made.  Ihe two men went to it with a  will and some fine work waa witnessed. Sutherland won the first  fall (said to be the fust time Connolly has been put to the mat in  seven years). w  The-seconcl fall went to Connolly  ,w"cj ;i hard struggle in which.Sutherland was mainly on the defensive,  Ihe conditions of the match as  announced by the chairman, Dr.  Huycke, called for two falls inside  of three hours, but at the end of  that time the score remained ( qufll  and the match was accordingly declared a draw.  Although the result of the match  was thus indecisive and a little din-  appointing, the spectators ' were  certainly treated to a fine display  of wrestling, and the gate must  have netted quite a considerable  sum.  We regret that owing to an  error in the report of this Kelowni -  Enderby baseball match published  in our last issue the name of M'  R. E. Berrv.of Vernon, was inserted  (as umpire) instead of Mr. Larson.

R. Mc-  Donagh, on Monday, July 15th, a  son.  Miss Goldie, sister of Mr. J.  Goldie, and her friend Miss Ross  are visiting at the Rainbow Ranch,  of wliich Mr. Goldie is the manager.  The O. K. Canning Co. has started up, and a number of employees  are now engaged in the process of  canning peas and beans.  Among recent arrivals in our  midst from the Old Country are  Mr. and Mrs. C. Lloyd Watts, who  taken up their residence in Okanagan Centre. Mr. Watts has  secured a position with Messrs.  Glecd and Nare, our local building  contractors.  Max D. Major had the misfortune  to lose one of his newly acquired  team of horses last week. We hope  he will soon recover the lost animal as one can ill afford to lose a  horse at this busy time of the year.  Prof. Warden with his wife and  family moved up last week from  Rutland, where Mr. Warden has  been teaching school, to spend the  summer vacation at their pret'y  lakeshore residence on Okanagan  lake. Mr. Warden was at one time  the teacher at the Okanagan Centre school.  A party consisting of Mr. M. P.  Williams, Mr. and Mrs. Chatterton,  Mr. J. Waters, Mr. and Mrs. Am-  phlett, Miss Orton, and Mr. J.  Powell drove up to the intake of  the irrigation system in the Woods  Creek canyon last Suuday, and  spent a pleasant afternoon in this  delightfully cool retreat.  The sale took place recently of  Mr. J. McClure's upper ranch. Mr.  Graham of Okanagan Landing is  the buyer. The purchase price being in the neighborhood of $20,000.  1 his property consists of 320 acres  of which some 50 acres are in  meadow, a very fine quality of  timothy hay being yeaily raised.  Mr. G. M. Watt had the pleasure  of a few days visit from his sister,  Miss Freda Watt who had been attending the Bishop Strachan school  in Toronto, and was on her way  home to Victoria. Among other  places of interest which Miss Walt  was shown was the intake works  of the irrigation system, and llie  falls on Woods Creek canyon and  the land clearing operations being  carried on by the Okanagan Valley  Land Co. At this latter point for  the benefit of the visitor, who had  never before seen any blasting,  fifty stumps were shot in succession  and, viewed from a safe distance,  presented a highly interesting spectacle.  C. E. Joslyn, for the past month  one of the government road gang  working to the south of Okanagan  Centre, was taken seriously ill last  Saturday, and was taken to the  home of his brother, N. V. Joslyn.  Here he developed all the symptoms of appendicitis, and has lain  (or the past week awaiting a favorable opportunity to be removed  for an operation which it is feared  will be necessary. We sincerely  hope Charlie will soon be around  amongst us again.  A very heavy rainstorm on Monday afternoon, did no little damage to orchards and crops on the  east side of Woods Lake. Considerable damage was also done to  the roads, the long grade north  of M. P. Williams' being rendered  impassable by deep wash-outs till  repairs were speedily effected by  the government road gang. It was  the heaviest downpour for several  years now, and was accompanied  by a good deal of thunder and  lightning, and hail.  A very pleasing ceremony, conducted by the Rev. C. O. Main,  took place at the Presbyterian  Manse in Vernon on Saturday, July  13th, when Mr. Harry Gleed was  united in marriage to Miss Grace  W. Baker, of Croydon, England.  After the nuptials had been celebrated the happy couple motored  through to Okanagan Centre, and  are spending their honeymoon at  several points up and down Okanagan lake previous to taking up  their residence on the old Stroud  property which was recently purchased by Mr. Gleed. Mr. Gleed  is the managing director  and secretary of the O. K. Canning  Co., Ltd, and also has a number of  other interests in the district. We  wish to extend congratulations to  Mr. and Mrs. Gleed and to hope  for them a long and happy wedded  life.  During tlie summer months mothers of  young children should watch for any unnatural looseness of the bowels. When  given prompt attention at this time serious  trouble may be avoided.

Tha Editor does not nse  aaaarllq endorse opinions yloen belou).  The Meat Question  To the Editor of  The " Kelowna Record,"  Dear Sir,���May 1 through the  medium of your valuable paper be  allowed to offer a solution to this  vexed question, which any individual may adopt ? It is (imply ���do'  without. Nine-tenths of those who  read this will at once say they  can't; that being about the only  reason most meat eaters have for  eating meat -that they can't do  without.  1 used to firmly believe the same,  but having four months ago entirely  given up meat owing simply to  the fact that I found 1 was paying  a very high price for what waa  very often an objectionable article  of food, 1 soon found (not at once)  that I could do just as much, if not  more, work without it than with it,  and that the " can't do without"  cry is entirely a fallacy.  1 am now doing anything trom  thirteen to seventeen hours per  diem of manual labor and was  never " feelinf? fitter."  Any vegcl���iioii vw',1 tell ihe same  ���lory and the system offers to any  one who cares to trv it for at least  one month three things - a solution  of the present meat trouble, better  health, and a reduced cost of living.  Yours truly,  S. M. GORE.  Dear Sir,���It is surprising that  in a province like B.C. and a district like Okanagan, famous for its  fruit, that one should be compelled  to submit to a monopoly of the  meat trade and to the risk of  ptomaine poisoning due to bad  meat in the hot weather, when by  the adoption of a healthy diet of  fruit and vegetables auch as this  district produces all such risk  disappears.  As a matter of 23 veins' experience 1 can speak for the sufficiency of this diet for maintaining  health and strength. It is a fallacy  to suppose that flesh food is  necessary even for those who do  manual labor. Many have tried a  diet of fruits, nuts and vegetables  with success and have generally  found that though they naturally  miss the meat at first they are  ultimately benefited by the change  and gain more energy, clear thinking and better health as a result.  In the recent boycott at Chicago  when so many, owing to the ex-  horbitant price of meat, adopted  for three months the more humane  diet above mentioned as a protest,  it was clearly proven to many that  flesh food was not a necessity, and  a great number adopted the fruit  diet permanently. It is no more  expensive, leas trouble, cleaner,  and offers a greater variety than  a dietary of fish, flesh or fowl, and  one has the satisfaction of knowing  that no sentient life has been sacrificed in order that his appetite and  palate may be gratified.  SIDNEY H. OLD.  Agricultural Lime  P. Brooke, Esq., Secretary,  Kelowna Farmers' Institute.  Dear Sir:  We have been advised by the  Deputy Minister of Agriculture that  a demand exists for the supply of  agricultural lime, and he has kindly furnished us with a list Farmers'  Institutes in which your name appears ; also that the department has  arranged very low transportation  rates with the C, P. R.  We have put in the necessary  equipment, and are now in a position to supply any quantity; at this  moment we have about 400 tons  on hand which we are desirous of  shipping immediately to save the  expense of shifting into store, and  for which we would give buyers  the benefit of saving in labor  charges made thereby.  Our staple price is $4.25 per ton  F. O. B. our shops, Atkins Siding,  but to August Ist we will quit the  above quantity at $3.75 per ton.  In certain cases we are prepared  to make special terms with regard  to payment.  The special rate quoted to Kelowna, Okanagan Mission, Peachland, and Penticton is 16 cents per  100 lbs, with a minimum of 60,000  pounds.  At the low price named above,  and in view of the agreement amongst the various authorities of the  benefits accruing to farmers by the  use of lime, we hope your members  will accord us suppport, and also  take advantage of the present low  quotation.  We shall be pleased to have any  orders you or your members can  place, now or in the future.  Yours faithfully,  VICTORIA VANCOUVER  LIME & BRICK CO., LTD.

Census Returns  The official returns ot the 1911  census of Canada gives the population of the federal constituency  of Yale-Cariboo as 56.382. Of  this number the males are 37,167,  and the females 19,215. The total  land area is given at 111,956,530  acres or 174,93208 square miles.  The number of persons to the  square mile is 0'32." The population of the whole of Canada per  square mile is computed at I '93  and of British Columbia I '09. The  population of the sub-districts of  the Yale-Cariboo riding is given  as follows: Kamloops 8,362; Cariboo 5.993 ; Grand Forks 2,814 ;  Greenwood 1,557 ; Kamloops (c)  3,277 (although the police census  taken during last winter gave the  city of Kamloops well over 4,000  people) ; Lillooet 2,898 ; Okan-  'agan 11,275 ; Similkameen 4,134 ;  Yale (part.) 6,588 ; Enderby (c)  835; Grand Fork, (c) 1,577;  Greenwood (c) 778 ; Kelowna (c)  S.663 ; Merritt (c) 703 ; Phoenix  (c)662; Vernon (c) 2,671.  Car Turns Somersault but  None are Injured  Bishop de Pencie'r and a party  of six others were returning from  Fort George and the . Cariboo,  when the great B. X. Company  Winton car, in which they were  being carried along at a speed of  15 miles an hour dropped over the  bank of the road into a rushing  stream ten feet below. The car  turned completely over but the  strong current carried it on. Strange  to say none of the party were  injured, and after a wait of some  hours a rescue car took them on  to Ashcroft. The bishop was most  active in helping to rescue those  of the passengers who were in  danger, and in recovering the  baggage.   Census Says Indians Are  Increasing  According to statistics just compiled, the Indians in Canada show  no signs of disappearing. During  the past year the population increased by a few hundreds, and  the total number in the Dominion  now is 104,000. On the other  hand the figures show that the  Eskimos are being slowly but surely  destroyed. There are now only  about 15,000 of this race in the  northern part of Canada. Disease  ravage and a lack of knowledge  of sanitary requirements are given  as causes for the decline.  Carp Spoil Fishing  in Osoyoos Lake  Some sad news for anglers is  conveyed in the report of game  warden Williams, that Lake Osoyoos in the Similkameen country is  full of carp. The course and  greedy fish have killed all the trout  and are eating up the weeds in the  'ake. The latter is a great grief to  duck hunters, for the weeds form  the chief food for the wild ducks.  Fortunately the carp are too sluggish to get past the Okanngan falls  into Okanagan Lake. The falls  will prove an effectual barrier to  the fish and prevent them injuring  the trout in Okanagan Lake.  em  World's Champion Typist  The world's typewriter speed  record for one hour's continuous  writing on unfamiliar copy was  broken by Mias Florence E.

It is 'your  privilege to expect the same attention, progress and  efficiency in the things you use in your daily work as  have been brought about in other and often leu  important lines of endeavour.  The Gurney-Oxford is the foremost example of cooking efficiency.  The Gurney Economizer regulates all the drafts by  lifting or dropping one small lever. It keeps the fire  alive for hours with practically no coal consumption.  It saves 1 ton of coal in 6. The Gurney Economizer  is found only on the Gurney-Oxford range.  The Gurney-Oxford Oven is absolutely and always  heated the same on all sides and in all corners because  the heat is evenly distributed.  This is a sure and unfailing guarantee that whatever  comes out of the Gurney-Oxford Oven is crisp and  light and delicious���this is the final test and the point  most often advanced by those who cook on a Gurney-  Oxford, those who believe it is woman's right and  privilege to have in her kitchen the labor, time and  ���money saving principles embodied in the Gurney*  Oxford.
