Morrison submitted a  rough plan of a proposed subdivision, to which the council suggested a few changes.  A letter was read from the  Peachland municipality, offering  for sale some incandescent lights  which had been oidered in error,  it was decided to hand the letter to  a local electrician1 as the council  had no use for them.  Aid. Millie gave notice of his intention to submit an amendment  to the fire by-law, so as to prevent-  the piling of loos* haj .,within the  fire limits, and also a bv-law to  regulate the sale of fire-wood. He  contended that at present people  were being charged the same for  12, 14 or 16 inch wood, which he  did nt.t think a square deal.  Aid. Sutherland mentioned that  the Light and Water committee had  intended going into the matter of  revising the plans of the system,  but had not been able to do so,  owing to the absence of Mr. Leckie  who had some necessary information.  It was mentioned that there was  an application in for the position  of road foreman.  Aid. Raymer said there were  no doubt others who would like to  apply if they knew the city wanted  a foreman. He suggested advertising tbe position.  Aid. Sutherland thought it would  . be well to wait until the estimates  had been prepared.  A telegram and letter which had  been sent to the Canadian Westinghouse Co., in reference to the  new generator, was read. The  company had promised to look into the unsatisfactory working of  the generator, but had neglected  to do so, and the committee had  intimated to them that the council  would hold them responsible in  case of loss or damage. The result of these communications had  been a visit from Mr. Yuill, the  city's consulting engineer, and Mr.  Hartney of the Canadian Westin-  liouse Co. They had examined  the plant but were coming back in  a week's time to make a thorough  test.  Aid. Millie contended, that the  Canadian Westinghouee Co.,  should be held responsible for the  interest on the cost of the generator, which was of very little use to  the city in its present state.  Aid. Sutherland said it was not  quite clear where the trouble was  and very little could be done un  till the proper tests had been made.  There was a matter which the council might take up, and that was the  difference in the winding of the  t^vo exciters, which would operate  their respective generators, but  would not run together owing to a  difference in voltage. The rewinding of one of them would cost $45  and it was a question whether the  city should pay this or those responsible for the installation.  Aid. Millie said he thought the  council should obtain the services  of another engineer to examine the  plant, as he was of the opinion that  there was something seriously  wrong.  Aid   Sutherland   declared   the  plant would be perfectly satisfactory when the heating of the new  generator was corrected, and the  two exciters adjusted to work in  parallel.  Aid, Copeland spoke of the destruction of trees on the streets. He  said it was no use for the city to  plant them if they were not protected.  The mayor mentioned a case  wliich had been brought to his  attention of some boys who had  gone down the street with a stick  knocking off branches ot trees.  It was felt that something should  be done to make an example of  offenders.  Aid. Taylor complained of barbed wire being allowed to remain  alongside of ftreets, and it was decided to instruct the constable to  notify owners to remove same.  Aid. Raymer drew attention to  an overflow of waste water from  the kitchen of the Lake View hotel  which was causing a bad smell.  The health committee was requested to take steps to have same remedied.  A discussion arose nn the drainage of the streets, Aid. Taylor contending that it was a waste of  money doing anything until proper  alreet grades had been established.  Aid. Blackwood said he had  been informed by Mr, M. Hereron  that funds wert. av ible for the  continuation of Water street from  the city limits along the lake shore  and around the point of Knox  mountain if the city would continue  the street to the limits. A large  supply of good gravel was available around the point, and the  new road would give a straight  level haul into town.  Mayor Jones said he thought  MeBSi'8. Buckland and Crowley  would probably oppose the load  going through their properly.  This raised a discussion on the  question of leasing the foreshore.  Aid. Raymer said that Previous  councils hau acted very unwisely  in granting away the city's foreshore rights. He strongly advised  the council to oppose the application now being made by the D. W.  Crowley Co. The council would  certainly want to extend Water  street to Manhatten Beach, and if  the leases were granted it would  be another obstacle in the way.  Mr. R. H. Parkinson who was  present informed the council that  he had prepared plans of foreshore leases  two years ago for Mrs. Stirling and the  Crowley Co. The council had approved  of the plans, and Mrs. Stirling had secured  her lease. The Crowley plans had been  sent to Victoria, but had been somehow  lost in the mail or in one of the government offices. They were therefore under  the necessity of making a fresh application.  in reply to a question of the mayor the  clerk said the original plans had been  passed on March 26th 1910.  . Aid. Taylor aaid he was opposed to the  council raising any objection to the lease.  as it had been approved by the council,  and it would be unjust to take advantage  of the loss of the plana.  Aid. Raymer, however, contended that  the previous council had been foolish in  giving away such rights, and he would not  agree to endorsing their action.  Mayor Jones said the council should  certainly endeavor to get the road put  through.  Mayor Jones reported that the Police  Commissioners had received a large number of applications for the positions of day  and night constables, after considering  which they had appointed Robert Sutherland of Winnipeg as day constable at a  salary of $85, and W. A. McCubbin as  night constable at-a salary of $70.  Sutherland had served five years in the  Leith, Scotland, and some time in Winnipeg, and McCubbin had tormerly been a  member of the Glasgow police force.  The mayor mentioned that so far verv  few applications bad been received for the  position of assessor. It was decided to  extend the time for receiving applications.  The mayor said he had been informed  by tbe Dominion Express Co.'s agent that  the company had dedided to grant the  Board of Trade's request for free delivery  of parcels, but such delivery would only  be within the city's fire limits. Tbe agent  wanted the council to write the Railway  Commissions approving of this arrangement. The council decided to approve of  the proposed free delivery, but to request  that same be extended.  Mr. R. H. Parkinson submitted a plan  of subdivision of Lots 3 and 4, Block 8.  Map 168, which the council approved.  The council then resolved itself into  committee for the consideration of By-laws  103 and 104, which were afterwards read  a second and a third time.  Aid. Millie stated that he would be away  for about a month from the city.  The council then adjourned until Monday next.  The Kelowna Study Club will  meet at the home of Mrs. Robison  on Tursday, March Nth, at 8 p.m.  Subject for study : " Clergymen in  Recent Canadian Fiction." Roll  call answered by quotations from  th: works of eminent Canadian  clergymen.  Presbytery Meets  at Kelowna  Considers Resignation of Rev.  A. W. K. Herdman and Separation of Churches  1 he Presbytery of Kamloops  met in session on Monday night  last in Knox church, Kelowna, to  consider the resignation of the  Rev. A. W. K. Herdman and relative matters.  The request of Knox church to  be separate from Benvoulin was  acceded to, and henceforth this  will form an independent charge.  Representatives from Benvoulin  and Rutland were then heard in  their desire to form an ordained  charge with Mr. Herd...an set over  them, it he would consent. The  whole matter as regards the situation in the country together with  Mr. Herdman's willingness or un-  williugnr8s, was left in abeyance  for two weeks pending a reply  from the synod's home mission  committee, but it is expected that  Presbyterian services will be begun  in Rutland at a very early date.  The resignation was then gone  into, and representatives from both  congregations were heard, who  spoke very highly of Mr. Herdman  and his work and in support of a  resolution passed unanimously by  Knox church at a congregational  meeting previously held, which is  printed below.  At Mr. Herdman's own request  and motion the pastoral tie is to be  severed at the end of the present  month (although the Presbytery  wanted a longer delay) nnd the  pulpit of Knox church declared  vacant on the first Sunday of April.  Rev. Fergusson Millai, Penticton,  was appointed interim moderator  of session.  The Presbytery then adjourned  lo meet in Vernon early in April  for the introduction of Rev. Mr.  Main to the pastoral charge there.  The following is the resolution  above referred to:���  The Rev. A. W. K. I lerdman, having  informed this congregation that he had  reigned his charge as minister of  Knox church, Kelowna, and Bethel  chuich, Benvoulin, to the presbytery  of Kamloops, this meeting of the congregation of Knox church, Kelowna,  receives Iris resignation with feelings  of regret, nnd desires to place on  record its sincere appreciation of Mr.  Herdman's faithful services during his  ministry of six and a-half years, and  wishes to bear testimony to his able  pulpit ministrations. His conscientious  discharge of the varied and at times  difficult duties devolving upon a minister of the gospel, has left its impress  for good upon many a life.  The congregation also wishes to  express its warm appreciation of the  services rendered to the congregation  and to the Sabbath School by Mrs.  Herdman ; and wishes Mr. and Mra.  Herdman many years of usefulness in  their high calling.  Curt* Wedding Anniversary-  Judging by the tone of the  congratulatory addresses, and the  number of gifts presented to Mr.  and Mrs. J. Curts on the twentieth  anniversary of their marriage  (Thursday last), no doubt can be  entertained as to the very high of  esteem in which they are held  after their nineteen years residence  in Kelowna. About 75 guests  assembled at their home on Bernard Avenue Thursday last, when  a most entertaining evening was  passed, towards which Messrs. W.  Cooper and LDilworth contributed  solos. Mr. J. W. Jones acted as  chairman, and Dr. B. F. Boyce  proposed the health of " the  happy couple," which was seconded by Mr. J. A. Bigger and responded to in suitable speeches  by Messrs. Davidson, Sutherland,  Munson.l laug, Hunter and Caddes.  Incidentally we may mention that  Mr. Curts' wedding day is also  Lap year day, so that, speaking  literally, twenty years will elapse  before the silver wedding can be  celebrated.  Fatal Accident to  Kelowna Teamster  Loaded Wagon Passes Over  His Head  A distressing accident occurred  about 9 o'clock Monday morning  near the C.P.R. tracks, resulting in  the death of Wm. Constable, an  employee of the Central Okanagan  Lands, Ltd.  Deceased was engaged along  with others in hauling wood pipe  for irrigation work in Glen :r ore.  I le had loadsd his wagon from the  car and was climbing to his seat  on the top, when some of the pipe  slipped causing him to fall to the  ground. Startled by the noise the  team started forward and the  wheel of the heavily-loaded wagon  passed over the pool" fellow's head  fracturing his skull and causing  instant death. Dr. Boyce was  hastily summoned, but pronouncing life extinct. A formal inquest  was held on the spot, after which  the body was removed to the  undertaking parlors of the Kelowna  Furniture Co.  Constable, who wns a steady,  reliable man, and well liked by all  who came into contact with him,  had been in the employ of the  company for some time, last year  having acted as water baliff. He  was an Englishman hailing from  Scai borough, Yorks, where his  relatives at present reside. The  company at once communicated  news of the sad occurrence to his  mother by cable and a reply has  been received,  Interment took place Wednesday nt the Kelowna cemetery,  service being previously held at  St. Michael's church, the Rev. T.  Greene offii i.iiirg. The church  was crowded with friends of the  deceased, the cainp having been  shut down for half a-day to allow  the men to attend. The funeral  was also attended by the heads of  the Company, the office staff, and  a large number of local sympathizers. A beautiful wreath of flowers, the product of Mr. H. Lvaon's  green - lionsr s, was sent by  Constable's fellow boarders.  There is a rumor current that  sums of money were owing to the  deceased by persons in the Kelowna district amounting to $250,  and at Okanagan Centre to $175.  Those concerned are asked to  kindly communicate at once with  the Company, who will see that  the cash is placed to his estate.  Drunken Quarrel  Ends in Murder  Half-breed Shot Through Head  at Westbank  Master Willie day won the matinee dot contest ot Dreamland last  Saturday afternoon.  Some amusement wan caused at  the "Passion Play," Tuesday night  by the inevitable "small boy at the  back." When the " wonderful  draught of fishes" was hauled  above the surface of the waters in  the nets of the future disciples,  this irreverent youth called out  " Kickininnies I  Clever Shooting Exhibition  Mr. Chas. E. Mink, expert demonstrator'for the Dominion Cartridge Co., was in town last Monday and gave an exhibition of  shooting in the afternoon wh'ch  was an eyeopener to those who  witnessed it.  Mr. Mink's work with the shotgun was clean and quick, keeping  several of the onlookers busy filling the air with bottles, cans, etc.,  doubles and trebles being apparently easy work, judging from the  very few misses made.  The work with the .22 rifle was  good, too. Walnuts, pieces of coal  were thrown into the air and shot  to pieces. A piece of card placed  edgeways was cut in half, and several bullets placed in the same  bullet hole in succession.  The best work was done with a  big 30-30 rifle. Oranges, half-  bricks and pieces of coal were  thrown in the air and shot before  reaching the ground. A piece of  quarter-inch steel was thrown in  in the air and shot through as easily ns if it were a piece of paper,  while the same bullet fired into an  orange did not pass through it entirely, but spread as soon as it entered, leaving very little of the  orange to be seen. In addition to  this Mt. Mink did a number of  fancy revolver and tifle stunts in  various positions, with mirrors, etc.  making in all a splendid exhibition  of marksmanship.  In the evening he visited the Indoor Rifle Range, but not being a  specialist on taiget work did not  do so well as out-doors. However he did excellent shooting and  made the highest score of the day.  The citizens of Kelowna were  startled and horrified last Sunday  to learn that on the previous night  a brutal murder had been committed at Westbank, and that three  men of the already notorious  McDougall family of half-breeds  had been arrested. As the details  leaked out it appeared that Dave  McDougall, of Duck Lake, had  been shot and killed in a drunken  row near the farm of his uncle,  Edward McDougall.and that Albert  McDougall, son of the latter, had  been arrested as author of the  crime. The father and another  son, Dan, were also arrested on  suspicion of complicity.  In the early hours of Sunday morning,  constable looth, of the provincial police,  was summoned to Westbank, and proceeding to tbe McDougall farm found the  murdered man lying face down in a pool  of blood on the hillside a short distance  below the barn. In the back of his head  was a gaping wound wiiich had evidently  been caused by a rifle shot. No salisfac  lory explanation was forthcoming on inquiry at the house but strong suspicion  fell upon Albert McDougall and he was  arrested and brought to Kelowna along  with his father Edward, and brother Dan.  On Mnnd��y a jury was summoned, con.  rusting ���l Messrs P. B. Wiltltts, A. Edwards,  E VvVdJell (foreman), R. I-". Morrison,  D. W. Sutherland and Geo Rowclijfe, and  an inquest orr the body of the murdered  mnn was field by Dr. Boyce.  A Urge number nf witnesses were  examined by Mr. J. F. Burne, but their  cvideiico Was Very conflicting and contradictory. No definite motive could be assigned [pi lire crime which seemed to have  been tire outcome of a drunken quatrel,  the result probably, of   previous tllfc-ling.  1 he McDougall house tins long been a  general rendezvous for ull that is disrepn.  table and vicious in the district. The  f.nnily is a large one and nn Saturday  night a party of them, consisting of Ed.  McDoUitall, stir., the sous Albeit, Dan and  August, two daughters, and a cousinT>ave  from Duck Lake, seems to have been  assembled along with two Englishmen.  Win. Miller and Jack Huston, who admit  having taken whisky with them. Considerable drinking appears to have bren going  on. Later, the parly left the farm taking  the trail to August's house which is some  distance away. They did trot goaltogether,  but in ones and twos. Albert evidently  stayed behind, and alter going some distance Dave senna to have turned back.  I-1 nni the evidence of the witnesses who  were ahead at the time, quarrelling was  heard when Dave got back, and four shots  in quick succession, the inference being  that Albert shot his cousin near the house.  The jury returned a verdict to the effect  that " Dave McDougall met his death by  being shot in the head by some unknown  person."  On Tuesday, the accused, Albert McDougall, was brought up for preliminary  trial, his father and Dan being charged aa  accomplices after the fact. Later the two  latter practically admitted having seen  Albert fire the shots, and were allowed to  go free. Charged with the crime prisoner,  who was more visibly affected by tbe  seriousness of his position than on the  previous day, stated that he had been  drunk at (he time of the murder and could  not remember anything about it.  He was committed  for trial at the next  Opening of New  Catholic Church  Interesting Ceremony Took  Place Sunday Last  The new church erected by the  Catholics of Kelowna and district  was opened wilh due solemnity on  Sunday last. The church, winch  although not yet entirely fiiiihlied,  is a beautiful structure, into which  considerable taste in designing and  killed workmanship have been  put, was crowded to its utmost  capacity with Catholics from ull  parts of the Valley, as well as a  number Protestant sympathisers.  Grand Mass was celebrated in  the morning by the pastor, the  Rev. Father Verbeke, assisted by  the Rev. Father Choinell, of Greenwood as deacon, and the Ri v.  hatlier Citron of Vernon as sub-  deacon. An eloquent and appropriate sermon was delivered by  Father Choinell, The choir of St.  James  Catholic   Church,   Version,  took care of tha musical part of the service, and their excellent rendering of the  beautiful mass music was mnch appreciated.  The evening service consisted of the  Rosary, Sermon and Benediction.  Mr. M. Hereron and A. O. Brunette  acted as ushers.  The new church supplies a need which  has long been felt by Kelowna Catholics  and has received generous support from  many of ihe other denominations, who, as  the Rev. Father t-xpessed it, were Catholics  ir heart, It lias been built under the immediate supervision of Rev. Father Ver-  beki', wli.. contending against many difficulties has brought it to its present cr.n.  diliun at a cos! of somewhere about $V)00  and it if estimated ihul $i000 more will be  required to comi Feb the building.  1 he [nteriol of the t Inir, h is well wcrth .  a visit. Lvi n apart from the religious  point ol view, tiic betuilitul stained glass  windows, especially the window ot tbe  Sacred i loart, just aver the main Alter can.  not but please the rye, and the workmanship and designs of cealing and walls are  most effective considering the slight cost  entailed.  Large Crowd Sees Passion Play  McBride and Bowser  to visit Kelowna  Election Campaign Started  The proclamation is out for the  forthcoming Provincial elections.  Nomination for the Okanagan is to  be held nt Vernon on March 14th.  Polling will take place on Tuesday  March  28th.  Arrangements for the campaign  have already been made. It was  at first doubtful whether the Liberal paity of the province generally would contest the election, but  later a decision was made to put up a vigorous opposition. So far as the Okanagan  is concerned no announcement has yet  been made.  Premier McBride and Mr. Bowser are  to tour the province and according to a  telegram received thev expect to address a  meeting in Kelowda on Tuesday afternoon  at 2 p.m. March 19th.  The moving picture reproduction  of the famous "Passion Play" of  Ober-Aninieigau, which was given  in the Opera House Tuesday evening attracted almost a record crowd  and as the largest share of the proceed went to the Hospital Aid, the  institution should benefit to a considerable extent.  The films, which were shown by  Mr. Duncan, of the Dreamland  theatre, were excellent in every  way, and gave a wonderful impression of the life-story of Christ  as presented by the actor-villagers  in the queer old Bavarian hamlet  once every ten years. The Kelowna orchestra rendered appropriate music, while Mr. G. Ferrier  sang "The Holy City," lo the accompaniment of Mr, H. T. Boyd.  Mrs. Norman Symonds and family, who have been visiting Mr.  Symonds for ihe past few weeks,  left for their home in Vancouver  by this morning's boat.  The Rev. P. Henderson, of Armstrong, was in town Monday,  | attending the meeting of the prea-  i bylery in Knox church.  Mr. and Mrs. Campbell, of  I Miami, Sask., were visitors during  the    w-ek  of   Mr.  and   Mrs.   D.  McMillan.  Five per cent, of the receipts of  Calder'i sale on Saturday are to  be given to the hospital. If the  rush of buyers continues ns it has  been doing for the past week or  two the Hospital should benefit to  I a considerable extent.  The monthly meeting of the  Country Girls' branch of the  Hospital Aid will be held on Saturday, Match 9th, at 3.30 p.m.,  at the residence of the Misses  Metcalfe.  The results of the voting on the  question of '' Chuich Union"  which took place a month ago,  have been rnude known so far as  the local Presbyterian churches are  concerned. At Knox church the  vote showed 58 in favor and 20  against; the country, 41 wen; for  and 8 against. A large number of  those elegible, however, did not  record their votes at all.  A meeting of the Kelowna Conservative Association ia to be held  on Saturday next, March 8th, in  Ravmer's small  hall, at 8 p.m.  At the meeting of the Kelowna  Brotherhood on Sunday afternoon  next, in the Baptist church, at 3.30,  Mr. C. Groves is to give a paper  on "Arbitration."  The Rev. and Mrs. F. Millar, of  Penticton, spent Monday and Tuesday in town, the guests of Mr. and  Mrs. D. D Campbell. Mr. Millar  attended the meeting of the presbytery in Knox church.  Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Fraser and  Mrs. Plaskett passed through on  the boat Monday to Penticton,  returning from a three months'  trip to Ontario.  Dr. Knox had so far recovered  from his illness to be able to leave  for the const Saturday. He will  also probably visit the Hot Springs. The Orchard City Record.

The evidence given at the inquest on the murdered half-breed,  news of the brutal tragedy connected with the death of whom  shocked the city at the beginning  of the week, served to bring to  light some unsavory details respecting the visits of so-called " white"  men to the hot-bed of vice and  drunkenness which has long been  a festering sore on the other side  of the lake. If the man who has  been sent up for trial is convicted  of the crime he will no doubt  richly deserve his fate, though the  deed was most likely committed in  a drunken frenzy. But what of  the filthy scoundrels who go out of  their way to supply the Indians  with the whisky which sets their  savage brains on fire '! It seems a  pity that the arm of ths law is not  long enough lo bring them to  book.  Complaint was made in the  council chamber last Monday of  the wilful damage being done to  shade trees along the streets of the  city. This is a matter which is  constantly recurring. The damage  Is usually attributed to thoughtless  schoolboys whose destructive instincts  are   apparently   similar   to  those   or   a   young   pup,  and  similar remedy should be applied,  namely, a good licking when  caught; but they are not responsible for all the harm done, nor  perhaps even most of it. Drivers  ol rigs who take the sides of the  streets, and take lliein recklessly  not caring what damage they do,  are the worst offenders. If such  have not brains enough to appreciate the value of shade trees in  the beautifying of the city, and  the necessity of protecting them  while young, it is to be hoped  the police authorities will endeavour to teach them with sharp fines.

Dear Sir: Your correspondent  of last week writing on this subject,  evidently left the meeting "too full  for utterance " and was consttained  to fly to " printer's ink " with such  haste forcing one to think he had  dabbled in it for so long a time  that he turned instinctively to its  use. If " Fair and Square" had  turned loose such lovely arguments  when the discussion was on, perhaps (?) the result ol the vote would  have been different.  Most of us can think ol grand  and eloquent thoughts after it is all  over, but its while the fight is on,  that its necessary to do the firing.  Has he never heard of resolutions  being rescinded after additional  light and knowledge have been  brought on the subject ? The truth  of the old adage," Second thoughts  are best," was fully verified by the  action taken at the meeting last  Tuesday. The graciousness of the  South-enders to allow the school  to be built on the centre line is  neutralized by their knowledge  that the store, (around which most  of the south end children live) is  but a short distance from that line,  and by ignoring the claims of those  living in the N. E. and N. W. of the  district.  The Porter lot was brought to  the notice of the trustees, and one  of the members, at least, would not  entertain the idea, and refused to  bring its purchase before the voters  but spent a lot of time inducing  another owner of land to offer 4  acres at the high price of $750.00  per acre rather than the school  should be placed contrary to his  own ideas. One of the points "discreetly kept in the background"  was that the Reilly lot would have  had to be bought "en bloc" and  $4,700 was the price to be paid.  Will someone kindly lise and explain why the chairman did not see  fit to take the meeting into his confidence, and give his   reasons.  " Fair and Square" apparently  contends that 32 from 53 in attendance is not representative, showing him to be a little weak in arithmetic, and as another instance ol  a point " discreetly kept in the  background " he does not record  the fact of one lot receiving only 9  votes and the other 13 in favor as  against 32 to 2 for the lot chosen  No sir. The fact is that a personal  element has crept into the question  and the minority hate to give in.  but as this is a public matter, and  ihe Trustees bul the mouthpiece!-  or acting managers for the people,  they should do as the majority ol  the voters desire, and show themselves men with public spirit  enough to to view the question in  broad minded way and work to-  gether for the good of the district  as a whole. Many south enderi^  were known to have voted for the  Porter lot from an economical  motive.  PRO BONO PUBLICO.  Proposed Poultry Association  Sirs : I was appointed to wrib  lo the Department of Agriculture,  Victoria, urging them to send a  representative to Kelowna to oi-  ganize an Association.  1 have just received a reply stating that it ia impossible at the present time to do so, but advising us  to go on and organize and thev  will send on a man to help us  later.  If persons wishing to join the  Kelowna Association will please  give me their names, or send me a  post-card or letter stating their willingness to be members, as soon ns  we have twenty-five names (the  number required ) I will call a meeting by letter to each applicant, and  then we can organize.

British Army Expenditures  The estimates of expenditures  for the British army for the fiscal  year of 1912-13, including both  effective and non-effective services,  aggregate $133,300,000, or an increase of $850,000 over those of  the year 1911-12. The enlite increase in the estimates is due to  the proposed expenditure by the  government in development of  aviation in the British annv, as it is  planned to spend $800,000 on the  acquisition of aeroplanes alone.

Oi\anagan Mission  Proposed Separate Parish  A special vestry meeting was  held at St. Andrew's church on  Thursday, February 29, at 8 p.m.  to receive the report of the lay  delegate to the Diocesan Synod,  Mr. G. C. R. Harvey, with regard  to the proposed severance of Okanagan Mission from the parish of  Kelowna. The Rev. C. H. Mty-  rick presided over a numerous attendance, which included Mr.  and Mrs. Wansborough Jones, Mr.  and Mra. E. A. Barneby, Mr. and  Mrs. R. Cray. Mr, and Mrs. W.  Hobson, Mr. and Mrs. Chaplin, Mr.  and Mrs. A. II. Bell, and Messrs.  Harvey, Chater, Woodmas, W. M.  Thomson, Dodd. D.ilgleish, B.  Crichton, TayO', R. Favell, B.  Meyrick, Miss Townsend After  ihe minutes of the previous meeting had been read, the chairman  called upon Mr, Harvey to give  his report of the Diocesan Synod.  Mr. Harvey briefly releired to Bishop De Pencier's charge, and the  appeal made to every parish in the  liocese to assist the church at  Fernie in the financial difficulties  under which it was laboring. With  regard to tbe Clergy Pension Fund  he stated that a committee had  been appointed to consider the  matter and report to the next  Synod. Coming to the separation  of Okanagan Mission from the  parish of Kelowna, he said that the  Bishop had expressed himself in  favor of it as soon as the question  of a vicarage could be satisfactorily settled, and he then proceeded  to lay the financial situation before  the meeting. The half-acre next  to the church could be bought from  the South Kelowna Land Co. for  $250 ; Mr. B. Crichton had offered  an acre of land free, but this offer  could not be definitely accepted  until it was known thai water could  be obtained. Meanwhile Mr.  Clichton received the thanks of  the meeting icr his generous offer.  A dijcussion ensued as to the  probable coal of building a vicar-  are, nnd on the motion of Mr. Hob-  son, it was decided that the build-  ng should cost not less than $2,000  nor more than $3,000.  A motion by Mr. A. H. Bell was  then passed, to the effect that the  parishoners of Okanagan Mission  thought it advisable to have a separate palish, and that the church  committee should find out what  financial support was likely to be  forthcoming. A building committee was appointed, it being understood that nothing should be  done by them until a favorable  report had been received from the  church committee. 1 hose nominated on the building committee  were : Mrs. R. Gray, Mrs. Wans-  bourough Jones, and Mesers. Dalgleish, Harvey, Mallam, Chater, W.  M. Thompson, Barneby, and B.  Crichton.

The aid saying, "CleanllnesH Is the  Mother of Godliness," has been re-  vlaed by modern science. It now  rendu, "Olt&nMuMB la the Mother of  Health."  Clean houees, clean yards, clean  streeta, clean lonee, clean water ure  essential  to irood health.  In the cities, towns and villages,  Individual cleanliness lu not sufficient You make take Uie utmost  palne to keep your own house and  premises clean, but If Uie public  streets are dirty, dust laden with  dlseaee will be carried Into your  home. Civic cleanliness is as necessary as private cleanliness, und It Is  the duty of every citizen to use his  vote and influence tn favour of keeping the lanes, streets und other public  places perfectly clean at ull seasons  of the year.  It costs money to keep u city clean,  and Uie citizen should not grumble  about any taxation thut may be necessary for this purpose. There la  danger, however, in every community  that unless Uie right men are selected  for rauniclpul offices money which  should be tippd lo empire r-Mc clean-  llneaa may 'be Ubud lor other purposes. The best way would be to  have a special tax for Btreet cleaning  purposes, und restrict the municipal  authorities from using the revenue  obtained from thin tux for any other  purpose than street eleunhig.

What niie has to be careful  ahniit Is mil to gel the waler Into  tbe eyes. Indeed, did Palestine belong  to any other Power bill Turkey, probably the northern slime of the lake  would he a popular bnthlug station.  No doubt the ohrollde uf magnesia  which enters so largely into ihe  composition of the water would he  found to have medicinal cud curative  properties.  The water Is certainly very dense,  containing twenty-three per cent, of  solid matter, and Is, titiik fur bulk,  heavier than the human body. How  dense It Is may he realised from the  following table:���In a ton of water  from the Caspian Sea there are 11 Ib.  of salt; In the Baltic, 18 lb.; In the  Black Sea, 21) lb.! in the Atlantic, 111  lb.; lu the English Channel, 7:; lbs.;  In the Mediterranean, s.'i lb.; in the  Bed Sea, 93 lb.; and iu the Dead Soa,  187 lb.  it has generally been believed that  this lainous inland sea Is decreasing  In si:'e, but the reverse Is the case.  Some twenty years ago there was a  small Island about half a mile from  the north shore. This has now entirely disappeared, whilst ou the west,  east, and south sliures evidences of  the eneroachmei. of the waters upon  the land were noticeable In tbe  presence of partially submerged  forests of large irees still standing In  the death-dealing waters.  BECOBD IN  IKWSI'OlfTUMIN  Railway shippers and especially  shippers of live stuck will be Interested 111 the record made by the Snu In  transporting a shipment uf burses  frum St. Paul to Vancouver recently.  The shipment which consisted of one  hundred and firty thoroughbred  horses wus made, from Lexington  Kentucky, by Irving II. Wheatcroft, a  retired United Stales Hallway man  and the owner of'Several large stock  farms. In shipping his stuck, the mily  stipulation uf Importance made by  Mr. Wheatcroft was that the horses  should be delivered In good condition  at Vancouver In not mure than sU  days after they had left St. Paul.  In forwarding the shipment, the railway not only made delivery at  Vancouver within six days but cut  the time down to under four days,���  three days and Iwenty-one hours to  be exact. The special train containing Ihe horses left Minneapolis nt  10.15 A.M. one morning. The following day, at (1,31) P.M. It reached Portal  and It left Portal Ihe same night at  8.06 o'clock. The Irlp frum Portal  w-as made In sixty-two hours, Vancouver being reached four days after.  This Is reinurkably good time and on  the arrival of the horses at V'ancouvor  [J, Mr Wheatcroft complimented the  j Canndlan Railway officials ou the  high standard of their rrelght service.  V The horses wore eventually shipped  to Australia on the steamab.p "Kish".  It  The age of China is, says a writer,  so great that the beginnings ure lost  In the mists of antiquity. It wus  probably old wheil Egy*t wus you��g.  Ohloa was China when Abraham went  out from Ur of the Chuldees and became the founder of a new nation.  Beyond all questions, China is the  oldest living nation, and most homogeneous.  The sages, rather than the kings,  hare shaped China. The teachings of  Oonfuclua, who lived In the sixth century before Ohrtet, wpoundud a  moral philosophy and a scheme of  human government which, roughly  ���peaking, made China. His "five relations" have fixed the social order;  these are the relations of ruler and  his officials, husband and Wife, father  and son, elder and younger brother,  and friend and friend. These account for the formalism and fidelity  uf social ties in China, and for the  complete subordination of the Individual. Filial piety is the cardinal  virtue. The Kmperor, who is tho  'Son of Heaven," Ib an absolute autocrat, because the people stand toward  liim In the relation of children to  parent. The system or government is  thoroughly patriarchal. Through all  Btorms and stress, this doctrine hus  held the literati loyal to the throne,  and hus furnished, down to recent  [lays, sublime instances of devotion.  Confucius ia the Atlas who has borne  the "Middle Kingdom" upon his  BhoulderB. And Confucius kept his  own face, and the faces of his people,  turned toward the past. The colossal  conservatism uf China is directly  traceable tu the sage's teaching concerning the "good old days" and the  rights  of  the  deud,  PUOGltESS IN THE WEST  A piece of rallwa) construction  that is almost uniiiue is now under  way on the British Columbia Division  af ihe Canadian Northern Railway.  It is ii three mile stretch between  ���������-��� iu- '...- nnd Welhachln located at a pulut about an equal dla-  . >��� in. n tho towns of Lytten and  \shcref! und in that atrip of right of  tv��) tour tunnels ure to he built. One  .sill be fifteen hundred feet iu length,  mother u thousand feet und the two  Diners five hundred feet each.  Recently six hundred men were  ;mployed there bin this number will  probably be doubled lu the immediate  future. Owing to the anxiety of the  'iMimiluu Northern to complete the  satire section of their line from Edmonton to Vancouver It Is probable  hat construction work will be proceeded With during the winter. This,  however, should prove in so sense a  hardship beoauae of the mellew  ill mate uf die coast province und of  the fact thut this underground cutting will place the men employed  beyond the interference of conditions  shtnlnlng outside.  In addition to this section of heavy  rock work there are two other tunnels to be built in Uiis mountain  Jistrict that arc oven of greater size.  Dne of these, which is located neur  the town of Yale la to be almost hall  ii mile long, or to be exact -.',0711 feet.  The other bore Is to be made in the  Black Canyon close u> the town of  A.sh croft.  IMPEH1AL WIRELESS POST  An early announcement may be expected that negotiations have been  concluded  between  the  British   Post  Office and Marconi Company for the  erection of a chain of wireless telegraph stations around the world,  linking up the British dominions, nnd  giving Great Britain an Independent  system of telegraphic communication  with any part of the globe. Connection with Uie Western Hemisphere  will be affected by mt-ans of a station  already existing ul Gluce Bay, and it  Is proposed to establish another station at Montreal to communicate  direct with the West Indies, where  all the Islands will be connected by  short-distance stations. From Glace  Buy it will be possible to communicate  direct with Vancouver, where a large  power station is to oe established  which will provide direct communication  with  Hong Kong,  The Sea Not Blue  The poets are always Hinging of  "the sea, the sea, the deep, blue sea,"  but as a nuttier of fuel the sea is not  always blue, off the coast of California some time ago the waters turned black w It hull I any known reason,  and In the Red Sea the waler hus a  duU red tli<v<, caused by millions of  biuull seaweeds and suhaqiialic plaiils,  The Yellow Sea of China owes Ita  colour to thft floods of muddy water  the great river pollrI into It. The  Mediterranean Is true blue because  very few large fresh-water rivers  enter il, and being practically landlocked and exposed lo powerful sunlight It has the greatest evaporation  of all seas.  One of Un- Wrong Methods  A little girl rrom Ihe ICaut End of  London (Rng.) was invited to a  garden party given by h very aristo-  CMItlQ ludy to u group of little slum  children,  'Die little girl, us she drank her tea  und  ale  her  plum  cake on  a  velvet  lawn  under a  blooming cherry   tree,  bald   to her hosleHH  "Hoes your husband drink?"  "Why -er   so, not  to excess,"  was  the  astonished   reply.  "How much does be make?"  "He doesn't   work,"  aaid   the  lady.  "He is a capitalist."    ���  "You keep out of debt, I hope?"  "Of course, ohild. Wbat on earth���-"  "Your   colour   looks   natural   ���   I  trust you don't paJnt?"  "Look here," exclaimed the hostess,  "what do you mean by all these impudent questions?"  "Impudent?" said the little girl.  "Why ma'am, mother told me to be  sure and behave like a lady, and when  ladles call at our room they always  question mother like that."  Hies Rou'i Grow in Size and It Is not  the Case that the House  Spec.men Bites.  It is quite a common belief that  flies grow hi sine, und that the small  flies one comes ucross In the house  are but the young of the larger house-  flies, bul this is quite u misconception.  The difference one notices In flies  of very similar appearance is due to  their belonging to u different species.  The feet of flies ure wonderfully  adapted to their habits, for they are  equally useful ror moving in any  position over either rough or smooth  surfaces. When walking over a rough  surface there are two claws which  come into play und enable them to  grip tightly, but when the foot falls  on to a smooth surface the claws are  automatically withdrawn, und, a pad  comes inlu contact with the smooth  plane. This pad Is provided with  minute glands, which cause the air to  be expelled from between the pada,  the surface to which the feet cling.  Bristles ure ulso provided In the feet,  and these probably contain the nerves  Which eiiuble the Insect to feel Its way  along und select its foot-hold. Another popular fallacy with regard to  the house-fly is that ut certain seasons  ul the year it biles, but this Is due to  contusion with another species, very  similar In appearance, the stable-fly,  which possesses the piercing mouth-  parts that ure so modified In our  common housu-fly thut it mukes biting  ur rather piercing, an impossibility.  SPONGE CULTIVATION  Sponges ure becoming scarcer and  scarcer, the higher qualities fetching  extraordinary prices, as compared  with those of a few years ago, and  this condition has led to the suggestion thut some artificial substitute  for the sponge be devised, or that  sponge cultivation luke on a new and  better phase.  Experiments in thy Mediterranean  show that the cultivation of sponges  may be undertaken with excellent  prospects of success off tho French  coust,aud that such cultivation need  not, as It wus first fcured, be confined to the Tunisian shores.  Sponges from the opposite shores  of the Mediterranean have already  been curried to France and planted on  its coasts It is expected thut the  Sponge Industry will be greatly  strengthened by these methods.  Fragments of sponge transported to  another locality heal in about three  mouths, when they again begin to  grow. Irregular bits soon become  spherical and rapidly Increase In size,  adding twenty-live times their own  value in the course of four or five  years. The growth Is, of course, slow  especiully during the first year, mainly because of the necessity for healing  the wound cuused by the tearing oil  of the fragment from the main bod)  for  transplanting.  The character of the spongy tissui  is altered by cultivation, that dark  tint becoming much clearer. It has  not us yet been ascertained whether  there Is sufficient change lu this  respect to alter the commercial value  of the product.  THE EARTH'S AGE  One of the most interesting results  of Professor G. K. Meeker's euiuiuing  up of recent investigations an to the  age of the earth is the general agreement in the figures arrived at by  different methods, "These," as Professor Meeker says, "seem to be mutually confirmatory, and to give re-  sulis which converge towards some  Value near llU.UUO.iiuu or perhaps  U6,0U0,U00 years." And these figures  approach more nearly to the time  allowed by Lord Kelvin from physical  consideration than to tbe practically  unlimited period demanded by some  evolutionists. One of the methods of  estimating the age of the earth Is by  dividing the amount of salt In Uie  ocean by I hut yeurlv curried lu by tbe  rivers of the globe. And Professor  Meeker draws al tent Ion to the remarkable fact that Hub years ago the  famous astronomer Hailey suggested  a wuy of determining the age of the  earth from the dullness of the oceun  "If," he said, "we determine the Quantity of suit iii the MM, .(in! then Home  centuries after make a second determination, we may by the rule of proportion take au estlmute of the whole  time wherein tbe water would acquire  Ihe degree of saltness we al present  riud In it."  To Hear the t'lj Tramp  The Inferiority of the human sense  organs to the instrument* of science  is pointed oul b> Dr. Curl Snyder.  He says that whereas the human eye  cuu see bul little more <huu 8,1100  stars lu Ihe heuveus ou the clearest  Of nights, the photograph)' plate and  the telescope can discover counthss  millions, it Is difficult for the eye to  dlbMiigulsh divisions of the Inch If  they are smaller than 1-200 of that  unit of measure, yet a powerful microscope will make an object 1-10,000  or an Inch lu diameter look comparatively large. Il would be a dcllcule  cur which could heur tho trump or a  riy, yet the microphone magnifies this  sound until it Hounds like the trump  or cavalry. The most sensitive Bkln  cannot deteel a change lu temperature  less than 1-6 of a degree, hut tho  bolometer will register on a scile an  increase or decrease of temperature  ol' 1-1,000,000 of a degree, and can  easily note the difference lu temperature caused lu a room wheu a match  Is  lighted one mile away.  Wax from Weeds  The discovery of a process for extracting wax from the candelilla weed  has created a new and important Industry In Mexico and Texas. The  caiuli'lilla weed is a desert plant  which grows abundantly upon many  millions or acres of somi-arid laud In  .Northern Mexico.

An interesting address was given by the  Rev. D. J. Welsh, of Kelowna, on  the subject of " Masters of the situation." The address was full of  wise counsel and help to the young  on the value of patience and perseverance in overcoming obstacles  and mastering difficult situations.  Examples were taken from the  lives of some of the world's greatest men, who had achieved success  after surmounting apparently overwhelming difficulties. In addition  to the address there were a number of musical selections by Mrs.  Gray, Misses Gladys Bird and Alda  McDonald, songs by Mr. Gay, and  a " coal-oil tin " obligate by Mr.  Wigglesworth. Before closing, the  president, Mr. Warden, referred to  the success which had attended  the meetings of the society, but  while acknowledging with grat-  titude the valuable help which had  been given by outside speakers,  expressed the hope that in future  sessions more might be done in  developing talent amongst their  own members. The proceedings  were closed by the singing of  " Auld Lang Syne."  Children are much more likely to contract the contagious diseases when they  have colds. Whooping cough, diphtheria,  scarlet fever and consumption are diseases  that are often contracted when the child  hes a cold. That ia why all medical  authorities say beware of colds.

Debating Society's First Concert  Without being guilty of boast  ing, the East Kelowna Debating  Society may claim that it's first  attempt at a public entertainment,  held on Friday, March 1st, was an  unqualified success. In the unavoidable absence of the president,  Mr. George Allen proved himself  a most efficient and genial chair-  man.  The concert commenced al 8.30  wilh a pianoforte solo by Mrs.  Dunn, followed by a reading of  " The Pied Piper of Hamelin," by  Mr. Wallace ; a sketch," An Afternoon at Rome," by Mr. Shaw ;  musical monologue,by Captain Ridley, entitled " The Game of Life ;"  a song by Mr. Leggatt; a dialogue  from " The Yeoman of the Guard "  by Messrs. Shaw and Gillespie.  another pianoforte solo by Mrs.  Dunn ; a comic song by Mr. J. T  Pearce ; a musical monologue, by  Captain Ridley ; a song by Mr.  Shaw, and a sang by Mr. Leggatt.  Refreshments were then dispensed, after which dancing was  begun. The music for the dances  was supplied in turn by Miss  Martin, Miss Hoy and Mr. Leggatt  at the piano, Mrs. McGibbon on  the melodeon, Mr. Geo. Allen on  the violin, and Mr. Chas. Lodge on  the gramophone. The sword dance  by Mr. McGibbon and the highland dancing by Mr. and Miss  McGibbon were especially appreciated. At 2 a.m., the singing of  " Au'd Lang Syne " brought a very  pleasant evening to a close.  Besides the above-mentioned  names the best thanks of the society  are due to Mrs. Teague for the  decorations of the schoolroom,  Mrs. Wallace and Mrs. Shaw for  the refreshments, Mr. Geo. Allen  for the loan of the piano, and  Messrs. Newbold and Andrrson  for bringing it to and from the  schoolhouse.  There were over 80 present.  The management of Dreamland  promise an exceptionally fine programme on Friday and Saturday.  "A Home Melody " is a beautiful  heart stirring drama with the very  essence of pathos. "Pathe Weekly" showing recent events of interest.

I,. Irving, of North Georgetown, Quebec,  used concrete for 81 different purposes en his  farm in 1911.  There are probably at least a dozen profitable uses for concrete on your farm at the present moment.  Perhaps you haven't thought of Concrete, except for a new barn, or a  silo, or some other big improvement for which you aren't quite ready yet  That's why you should read  "What The Farmer Can Do With Concrete"  It will open your eyes to the hundreds of uses that other farmers have  found for this material. In plain language, and with the  aid of many photographs. It explains just what these usee  are, and how they can be applied to your farm.  Concrete can not only be used for all the purposes to  which wood has boon applied, but also many others for  which  wood   would  never bo suitable.  It Is not only a building material; it's a "handy" material, something that you'll grow to depend upon mors  and more, as you learn Its possibilities.  So write for this book.
