Map 166  were submitted and approved.  Mr. D. McMillan reported to the  council on the tests he had made  of the land adjoining the cemetery  with a view to extending. He  had dug test holes to the north and  east of the present cemetery but  had struck shale and gravel. He  considered it impossible to construct graves in those areas. He  tecommended that any extension  be made to the west of the Anglican church cemetery, aB the only  suitable ground.  Aid. Sutherland reported that the  Light and Water Committee hod  found it necessary to order another  car of pipe and asked the council  to confirm the order. A resolution  was passed accordingly.  Aid. Millie asked when the new  intake pipe would be here. He  thought the council should endeavor to hurry matters a little.  The matter of widening Pendozi  street was mentioned, Aid. Copeland reporting that progress was  being made, only one man now  objecting.  Aid. Taylor waxed wrath over a  rumor which he had heard that  one of the Aldermen had been going around advising the people  concerned not to allow the ten feet  to be taken off their property as  nothing was being taken off the  other side. He thought the matter  had been fully discussed by the  council and no objection raised.  It was not a very wise thing or  likely to facilitate the business of  the council to have one of their  own members attempting to block  their work. Any objection which  was entertained should have been  brought out at the meeting.  Aid. Millie hastened to plead not  guilty. He was heartily in favor of  the scheme of widening the road.  Aid. Blackwood who was evidently the gentleman referred to,  said that it was not true that he  had "gone around" advising people  against the project. He had been  approached by several of the residents, and he had told them what  he thought about it, that he was in  favor of the road   being  widened  Continued en page 2  Rutland News  (From our own correspondent.)  A good number of ratepayers  attended the special meeting called  to elect school trustees in place of  Messrs. A. W. Dalgleish, and J. W,  Woolsey, who resigned office last  month. H. A. Elder was elected  to serve till July, 1912, and S. Gray  to serve till July, 1914. An annual  grant of $50 was voted to the sec-  treas. for clerical expenses. At a  subsequent trustee meeting held  next day H. A. Elder was elected  chairman of board, and S. Gray  secretary-treasurer.  The Ladies' Hospital Aid have  been obliged to postpone their  annual talent tea until Tuesday,  next, May 28th at 4 p. in. in the  Aquatic Building. All members  and friends are cordially invited.  Tho members will serve tea for  which a charge of 25 cents will be  made.  Board of Trade  Monthly Meeting  Campaign  to be Started for  Better Advertising of City  and District  The lowering of the lake, the  advertising of the city, and the  coming convention of the Western  Canada Irrigation Association were  amongst the important matters discussed at the meeting of the Board  of Trade Tuesday night.  With respect to the former Mr.  R. H. Parkinson urged that steps  be taken to induce the government  to continue the dredging of Okanagan river, which work had been  stopped in consequence of a petition sent by Mr. Leckie-Ewing and  others. He read a suggested form  of resolution which he had prepared and this was discussed in  detail, many new phases of the  subject being advanced. Mr. Parkinson held that the advantages to  Kelowna of lowering the level of  the lake and draining the low-  lying slough land were so great  that immediate action should be  taken.  Mr. S. T. Elliott contended that  it was not so much the lowering  of the permanent level of the lake  which was needed as the prevention of it rising in flood time above  a certain mark. This rising caused  the water to back up into the creeks  flooding ihe low-lying land on the  banks.  Mr. Pitcairn thought the object  to aim at was to keep the water at  a permanent level. No one wanted  excessively high water and 'here  seemed to be some objection to  unduly low water. He suggested  a committee lo confer with the  government engineer to get definite  information on the subject.  Aid. Millie spoke strongly in  favor of lowering the lake in order  to drain the urhealthy sloughs  which filled up at high-water.  President Kerr pointed out that  the Dominion government could  only deal with the matter from the  point of view of assisting navigation, and not on agricultural  grounds. The former must therefore be urged in any petition. He  proposed the following, resolution  which was carried :-  " Whereas the Dominion Government  has for several years been conducting very  valuable operations on Okanagan River  with a view to improving navigation, and  Whereas, certain persona have petitioned against the continuance of audi operations on the ground that it will injure agriculture by lowering Okanagan Lake :  Resolved, that the Kelowna Board < '  Trade strongly urires the Dominion Government to continue its operations not  merely because they are very valuable to  navigation, but because any lowering of  the lake which might happen, would be  beneficial to the great majoritv of persons  interested."  The growing demand for more  efficient advertising of the city was  introduced by a proposal of the  Progress Club of Vancouver that  the towns of the Okanagan valley  should jointly establish a permanent exhibit at the roast by taking  space for the purpose in their new  building.  Mr. John D. Kearns addressed  the meeting on behalf of the club  and explained its objects. The club  aimed at boosting the interior of  B.C. by establishing a permanent  information bureau in Vancouver  where most of the tourists and  settlers first landed. $25,000 had  been raised from contribution by  the Vancouver council, the provincial government, the C.P.R., and  private subscription. The various  sections of the province were falling in with the idea. Ample room  would be provided for exhibiting  the resources of a district, and the  display of literature and photographs. A space of 10 ft. by 30 ft.  was suggested for the Okanagan to  be shared by five towns. This at  40c. per sq. ft. per month would be  $24 each per month. Vernon had  already agreed and had suggested  that Kelowna as the centre of the  valley should have charge of the  arranging of the exhibits.  The idea waa received with considerable favor and a resolution  passed lhat the offer of the Progress Club be accepted.  The question then arose as to  where the funds were to come  from, and the matter of the city's  contribution to the Board for advertising purposes hotly discussed.  The grant  of probably less than  $500 which the city proposed to  give this year was felt to be entirely  inadequate. It was urged that the  plebicite on the question of setting  aside one mill of the taxes for  advertising purposes suggested to  the council at a previous meeting  be again pressed for.  Resolutions were passed that a  deputation of ten wait upon the  council to utge the granting of not  less than $2,000.  A futther motion by Mr. H. F.  Rees and enthusiastically adopted  was to appoint a committee to  solicit subscriptions from the citizens for publicity purposes. The  committee appointed for this latter  purpose were Messrs. S. T. Elliott,  H. L. J. Williams, F. R. E. DeHart,  H. A. Rees and Thos. Lawson.  Mr. Pitcairn on behalf of the committee  appointed to look after the visit of the  Irrigation Convention in August sketched  the progress which had been made in the  arrangements for entertaining the visitors.  The committee, however, i.had discovered  that the real arrangements were in the  hands of the secretary of the Association,  Mr. N. D. Rankin, who had approved of  all their plans. To avoid confusion, therefore, he recommended that the committee  be now discharged. This was done and  a vote of thanks passed for their services.  A letter was read from Mr. Rankin fixing  (he datea of the convention as August 7,  8 and 9, and aa it was feared that this  would conflict with the regatta, the secretary was authorized to communicate with  Mr. Rankin with a view to having them  changed.  Messrs. F. E. R. Wollaston and H, G. M.  Wilson were elected new members.  New Sawmill  Boat Launched  Obituary  Robert Henry Gowen  With startling suddenness death  removed one of Kelowna's highly  respected citizens last week in the  person of Mr. Robert Henry Gowen, father of Mr. Chas. Gowen of  the implement firm.  Deceased had been in poor  health for some time, but lately was  looking much better, and on the  day of his death was out in the  street and down to the Post Office  for the mail. During the night,  however, he had a sudden seizure  of his old complaint ��� a heart  trouble - and died almost before  a doctor could be summoned.  Mr. Gowen was fifty years of  age, and hailed from Norwich,  England, where the greater part of  his life was spent. He was  employed continuously for some  forty years as head shipping clerk  in one of the great mercantile  houses of the Old Country. Nine  months ago he and his wife came  out to Kelowna to join their son.  As a light employment he look the  position of janitor at the Roval  Bank. This, however, he was  obliged to relinquish some two  months ago owing to ill-health.  Although of a quiet and retiring  disposition, he was liked and respected by all who came in contact with him.  The funeral service was held in  the Baptist church and was largely  attended. A large number of  wreaths were sent by friends of  the family.  Little Girl Drowned at  Westbank  The sad drowning last Friday of  little Florence Dundas, the only  child of C. P. Dundas of West Bank  has awakened general sympathy  throughout the district for the bereaved parents. The little girl was  apparently attempting to cross on  a log which lay across a creek near  the house, and losing her balance  fell into the water, and was drowned before the accident was discovered. The creek in question is  usually almost dry, but has been  swollen during the last week or  two by the melting snow and rain.  The funeral took place Monday.  ' Orchard (-ity "  to be Name  of New Steamer  The Rev. Fergusson Millar, B.A.,  of Penticton, will preach in the  Presbyterian church Sunday next,  morning and evening.  The Rev. McLeod of Summer-  land preached in the Baptist church  last Sunday.  All preparations ure now completed for a big day of sports and  races to-morrow-Victoria Day and  given fine weather, which at the  moment seems highlv probable,  there should be a considerable  crowd at the exhibition grounds.  An event of more than ordinary  interest took place Tuesday morning, when in the presence of a considerable gathering of people, the  new boat which is being built by  the Kelowna Sawmill Co, to replace the old " Kelowna " was successfully launched.  The launching was arranged to  take place on the previous afternoon, but when the time came,  there was a heavy wind blowing  up the lake, and it was considered  advisable to postpone the ceremony until the following morning.  The launch was engineered so  well that there was absolutely no  hitch from start to finish.  When all wus readv Miss Beata  Lloyd-Jones, the youthful daughter  of Mr. D. Llovd-Jones, president of  the Sawmill Company, mounted a  platform at the bow of the boat  armed with a bottle of champaigne  which to save her hands from possible damage was tied to a stick.  " I name this boat the "Orchard  City",' said Miss Lloyd'Jones, and  dexterously smashed the bottle ac-  cross the iron-shod cut-water.  The liquid was still frothing  when with a few blows of the hammer, the last wedges were knocked  out, and the hull began to glide  slern foremost down the well-  greased ways into the water. Noiselessly and without a pause she  slipped into the lake. There was  no splash, and the surface of the  water was scarcely disturbed as  the beautiful boat glided gracefully  in and came to rest, straight and  ttue to the water line as easily as a  duck takes the water. A cheer  went up as she enterd the water,  and many were the good wishes  and congratulations which were  shouted after her. On board at  the time was Mr. D. Lloyd-Jones,  president, and Mr. W. Lloyd-Jones,  secretary, of the company, Aid. F.  A. Taylor and Mr. Geo. Ritchie,  and these waved their hats in answer to the cheering from shore. It  was a proud moment for the builder, when he thus saw the successful climax of his many months  work. But he was no prouder  than Mr. D. Lloyd-Jones himself,  who has closely followed the building process and purchase of the  machinery, and who will be the  "Orchard City's" captain when  completed.  The aid of the s.s. "Okanagan"  was secured to pull the boat off the  cradle which still floated under her.  She was then docked at the jaw-  mill wharf where the new boiler  and engines awaited her. Here  she will be completed and, it is expected, fitted for service in about  three weeks time.  The " Orchard City " which thus  so happily entered its native element, is a staunchly built and  gracefully proportioned boat, having a beam of 18 feet, and a length  over all of 90 feet, rather larger  than the old "Kelowna" and five  feet shorter than the C. P. R. tug  " Caatlegar," which latter however  has a beam less by two feet than  the new boat. Its twin 4ft. propellers will he opetated by a pair  of fine compound steam engines,  developing about 75 horse power  each. It is estimated that her  speed when running light will be  about 13 or 14 miles per hour. An  electric dynamo will furnish illumination.  The boat, although so graceful  in ils lines, is strongly and heavily  built, to withstand the rough usage  which the handling of heavy booms  of logs and the lake service entails.  It will be moreover powerful  enough to handle any of the barges  now on the lake.  She was designed by Mr. Geo.  Hale, of Nelson, the building having been carried out by and under  the superintendence of Mr. A.  Brown of New Westminster.  The machinery was built by the  Doty Engine Co., and furnished by  A. R. Williams and Co, of Toronto,  the boiler is from the works of the  Jenks Machine Co., Toronto.  There is considerable work still  to do of course, before the " Orchard City" can be used, but the  company are so urgently in need  of her that the work will be rushed  forward with all speed.  Wedding Bells  SWINDELL-COPELAND  One of the most notable weddings which have taken place in  Kelowna for a long time was the  marriage on Wednesday evening  of Miss Eva Copeland, daughter of  Aid. R. A. Copeland, to Lowell G.  Swindell, of Brandon, Man.  The ceremony was performed  by the Rev. Fergusson Millar, of  Penticton, at the home of the  bride's parents. The bride was  prettily attired in cream satin and  carried a handsome bouquet of  white roses. The bridesmaids |  were Miss Mabel Wilson, as maid  of honor, and Miss Fanny Copeland, sister of the bride; the  bridesmaids carrying bouquets of  pink and red roses. Mr. George  Richardson, of Broadview, Sask.,  acted as groom's man.  At the conclusion of the ceremony congratulations were showered upon the happy couple whose  popularity was evidenced by the  lavish display of presents which  they received on all sides.  Supper was laid in the dining-  room and parlor, the long table  being loaded with good things.  The decorations were in admirable  taste, the tables showing blooms of  white iris and tulips, and the walls  festooned with oregon grape and  lilac.  Some 150 guests were present  and the evening passed pleasantly  with music, games and general  merriment. The waiting at table  was in the hands of girl friends of  the bride.  The Copeland home looks handsome at any time with its background of tall trees and its fine  well-kept grounds, but it was transformed into a fairy scene later in  the evening by the electric lamps  in various colors which lighted the  lawn.  The party broke up near midnight, but a large number were at  the wharf this morning to wave  farewell to the happy pair as they  left for their future home at  Brandon.  The following is a list of the  presents which was headed by the  gift from the bride's lather of a  cheque for $1,000:  Fruit set; Arnold McDonald, Penticton ;  Sugar and spoon holder, Mr and Mrs W  McDonald, Penticton ; mirror, G McDonald  Penticton ; fruit basket, Mr & Mrs J W  Jones ; cut glass perfume bottle, Howard  Paul ; royal Doulton jar, Mr At Mrs J B  Knowles ; cut glass berry bowl, Or F Patterson, Grenfell, Saslc. ; cut glass celery  tray, I 1 While, Grenfell ; cut glass water  jug, J Copeland (brother) : velvet poker-  work cushion, Mrs Capt Phitp; silver vegr-  tablediah, D McDonald, Alix, Alt;, ; silver  fern dish, Mr & Mrs G RowcSiffe ; cut  glass berry bow], Milton Wilson ; cut glass  vases, Misses Harvey ; cut glass card tray,  Mr At Mrs Trench ; cut glass celery tray,  Capt and Mrs Knight . cut glass water set,  J I Pettigrew ; cut glass lemonade set,  Mr At Mrs Hepinstall, Vernon ; silver mustard dish, Tom Morrison, Glenmore ; cut  glass salad bowl and servers, Mr At Mrs  Wallace ; set table mats, Mra Timmins,  Vernon ; celery dish, Mis 1 T Smith,  Craik, Sask ; olive dish, Frank Carlisle ;  cut glass celery dish, Mr At Mrs F DeHart;  picture, Mi fit Mrs Cooper At Miss Whale ;  cabinet of silver, Boy At Girl Friends ; tray,  Sun.-sch. teachers fit officers ; biscuit jar,  Mr At Mrs D McMillan , cut glass marmalade dish, John 6c Ida Fleming . silver  biscuit jar, Mr At Mrs A W Barber ; silver  vegetable dish, Mr At Mrs N D McTavish,  silver fruit dish, Mr At Mrs T Lawson ;  silver serving dish, I MacRae ; Limoges  Plate, Wilfred Philps ; silver bread trav,  Mr At Mrs D Lloyd-Jones , J-doz. teaspns.

Two cases of murder, one  of attempted murder and several  of theft, bribery and robbery. 1 he  presiding judge was His Loidship  Chief Justice Hunter.  In the West Bank murder rase  in which Albert McDougall was  on trial for shooting his cousin,  Dave, accused was found guilty  and sentenced to hang on August  9th at Kamloops.  His father who was held as ��� a  witness for the ciown pot into  trouble himself while in Vernon,  being sentenced to six months in  jail for assaulting his wife during  the progress of the trial.  James, ihe desperado whose sensational hold-up of the store at ihe  Mission, murder of constable Aston  escape and recapture furnished so  much excitement in the district a  short lime ago, was also sentenced  to death, the judge referring to the  murder as one of the most cruel  and cold-blooded he had had to  deal with. James was defiant lo  the last, and is said to have re-  ti arked that if he had his revolver he would shoot the whole court.  His father was present at the trial.  The day before he was brought  from Kamloops to Vernon he wi s  found lo have made a desperate at  tempt to escape by sawing through  his leg-irons. His father who visited him in jail is suspected of having furnished him with the saw  which James had stuck under the  sole of his boot. He was also  found to have in his possession a  length of copper wire and two  heavy bullets, presumably lo construct a weapon. Fortunately, however, these preparations were discovered in time, and it is scarcely  likely he will he given another  chance.  The case of his companion, Wilson, who was simply charged wilh  escaping from lawful custody was  put back until the fall assizes.  The man Roberts who held up  the bank at Lumby and attempted  to shoot the manager was sent up  for 12 years hard labor.  Tom Jim, the Kelowna Chinaman  who attempted to bribe Chief Sutherland was found guilty and sentenced to 9 months hard labor.  Mr. Thacker of West Bank had  serious mishap with a shatp axe he  he was using Tuesday to cut kindling wood nearly severing his hand.  Dr. Knox was summoned and the  injured man was removed to the  hospital.  Percy Sautelle, the jockey who  was reported killed at the Calgary  races arrived in town today with a  horse for to-moirow's races.  Mr. P. T.

MEETING OF CITY COUNCIL  Continued from p,x,c I  but believed it was not fair to take  all the land from one side.  Aid. Sutherland said there had  evidently been a misunderstanding  that the people on the east side  only who were selling the land  had to pay for the extension. That  of course was not so as the residents on the west had to pay just  the aame. It was vety desirable to  widen the street and was a scheme  which had been tried for years.  Aid. Copeland said the committee in charge had spent a great  great deal of time interviewing the  owners and had made clear to all  concerned that both sides were to  contribute to the cost. Every one  had fallen in with the plan when  the facts were made clear to them.  The little breeze over, the business of the meeting was resumed,  and By-law No. 115 reconsidered  and finally passed.  Acting - mayor Copeland announced that he had seen the contractor in reference to the missing  locks on the implement shed. He  had agreed to have them fixed at  once.  To prevent a possible misunderstanding, Aid. Sutherland jocularly  suggested that an explanation  should be made as to why city  teams were hauling soil fiom the  excavation for his new building.  Aid. Copeland undertook to  make matters clear. He had seen  a team start to work hauling the  ���oil and it had occurred to him  that it would be very useful to the  city to fill up holes in the streets.  On behalf of the Board of Works  he had approached Aid. Sutherland  and asked that the city might take  the soil. Although several people  had been anxious to have it Aid.  Sutherland had consented to his  suggestion. The city was thus  getting the soil very cheaply and  it was a very short haul.  Aid. Blackwood reported that  the teams had been got to work  and the nuisance ground cleared  up. He mentioned that the scavenger desired to have the rule en  forced that no one should place  rubbish there without his permission. People were in the habit of  dumping refuse anywhere and he  had to clear it up.  It was pointed out lhat the bylaw expressly prohibited such a  practice.  Aid. Taylor raised a strong protest against the expense incurred  in clearing up the ground. It had  been understood at a previous  meeting that the scavenger was to  have the assistance of a man and  team for a dav, and as it was three  teams had been engaged for ten  days or more. The work should  have been done by the late  scavenger.  Aid. Copeland aaid the work  had been well done and although  it had run into more expense than  had been expected it had been  very necessaro.  Aid. Taylor suggested that the  council ought to take up the mat  ter of lowering the lake in view of  the petition which had been sent  by certain people to the govern-  Ald. Millie thought the council  should send a strongly-worded  petition to counteract the one sent  by Mr. Leckie-Ewing.  It was decided to let the matter  stand until the Board of Trade had  had an opportunity to discuss the  matter, when the council could  suppoit whatever they decided  upon.  The meeting then adjourned.  Communications  Under thia heading connnuaicaklona u ill  ba racatead apoa ana aablact ol Interest  Letters must ba aignsd, ba brlal, acold  psraonalltlaa.

This sympathy indeed helped to  bear the pain.  Trusting that you will be able to  find room  for  the publication ol  this and thanking you in advance,  I am, very truly yours,  C. R. GOWEN.  Okanagan Centre  Fiom our own correapomlent  Mr. F. Rayburn has now three  irrigation gangs at wotlc putting  water on the 600 acres of orchard  now planted out under his management for the Okanagan Valley  Land Co.  The C.N.R. survey party is now  camped on Mill creek near Mr.  Morrison's place in the Ellison  district, having moved a week ago  from their previous camp ou  Wood's Lake, near M. P. Williams'  ranch. Ihey have completed the r  preliminary survey to Kelowna  and are now busy with the location, which they hope to have  completed in another week.  Mr. W. Scott is again running  his auto stage and passes through  the district one hourearliet Veinon-  bound and two hours earlier  Kelowna-bound.  A deal is under way hy which  Mr. J. A. Mackichan expecls to sell  his 10-acre fruit farm along the old  Vernon road to Mr. D. McSherry.  If the deal goes through it is Mr.  Mackichan's intention to leave for  the coast with his wife and family.  An unusual sight was presented  last Sunday morning when a deer  was chased up out of the bottom  by two large hounds belonging to  Mrs. Woollen. The dogs had  evidently given it a long run for il  seemed pretty well fagged out.  Passing through Messrs. Watts and  Newton's places it got into the  main Kelowna-Vernon road nnd  following it for some distance disappeared in the bush again. 1 he  hounds were scared off the scent  in passing Watt's camp and ceased  their pursuit of the deer. Attempts  were made to catch it on foot bul  it was not tired out sufficiently to  permit of Its being caught thus  easily.  The creeks have been very high  for the past two weeks and as a  result Duck lake and Wood's lake  have risen considerably above the  ordinary high-water mark. Along  the Woods lake beach section of  the highway between Vernon and  Kelowna the water is now up to  the level of the road in a number  of places and in two places at  least the road is now under water.

IIKCOKIII.NO  NAHTHOUAKES  Becentlj Introduced Instruments Cu  Record Earth Motions Honerer  Distant May Be the  Earthquake.  In tho now Magnetic Observatory  at Bskdalemuir, Dumfriesshire, Boot-  land, there has recently been fitted up  an Instrument to record the motion  of tho earth produced by an earthquake, however dtHtant the earthquake may be from the observatory.  The Inventor of the Instrument Is  Prince Qalltzln, the RusBlan scientist.  The Instrument consists of a horizontal pendulum suspended by wires,  so that when tha framework, which  Is attached to the earth by a pier, Is  moved the pendulum Is forthwith sot  In motion. In the absence of friction,  however, such a pendulum would  vibrate too long, ami tills fault hiiB  been corrected In the Ualltzln pendulum In an Ingenious manner by  allowing a copper plate attached to  the pendulum to move between ths  poles of a strong magnet. The Introduction of friction has one dlsatl-  'vantuge: It reduces the sensitiveness  of Ihe apparatus, but by a second  clever application of electro-magnetic  theory, Prince (lalllzln has overcome  this trouble. Mr. U. W. Walker, the  superintendent of tlie observatory, has  invented an electrometer for the  measurement o( electrical forces. He  haa also devised an original con-  Btructlon for ascertaining the 'electric  potential' of the atmosphere,  The first night university to be  established in the world is that in  connection wilh the University of  Cincinnati.

SCIENCE  LANGUAGE.  The tendency towards o common  tongue whereby people of various  nationalities might be able to correspond and converse Intelligibly with  one another has been rovlved by Professor Uunnau In a strong plea for  hii International language of science.  He has collected and translated a  series of essays written by the most  celebrated luminaries of Europe upon  this perplexing question; for In the  development of science Ihe need of  a common cowprehenslve tongue le  more essential than In any oilier  ramification of human endeavour. i'p,  to a few years ago, comparatively  speaking. BClence was well siippl'.'l  In this respect, for Latin wns Ihe  vehicle for spoken and written com-  muulcatlous in Bdeuca; but the development of the liiter brought it1 out  the abandonment of this pi'0-t'ca.  Efforts to ihe same end have been  made by the creation of universal  languages such as Esperanto :ui 1  Volapuk, but these have now gone  tho way of all others, and are ns ilecid  as Ureek. The failure of Kspennlo  and Volapuk ia attributed by t "o-  feasor Lorens to 'want of rath n:il  development' nnd the fact thai f.iey  contain too much arbitrariness,  Hlood siain Discover'���.  It does not appear from the reports  In the dally presB and the scanty  Btatlallcs available, thai Ihe crime of  murder Is diminishing, notwithstanding the great social elfoiis thai have  been made, all the world over, lo Improve the race. However, what education and sanitation have failed to an-  compllBh, the chemist and II"' phy-  elclst may yet effect, by renderlnj i'ie  detection of crime eiiBlei' and the  "game" less worth the candle than  ever. Thus we have seen how  criminals may be tracked by fingerprint methods, and better still, of  late the very blood of the sliiliu Is  able to lull lis tule, whereas previously this was" a comparatively  ��� Ileal clue. In a recent murder case,  however, great progress was shown  In Ihe utility of the biological serum  test. Mr. Justice Darling, Eng.. remarked on the value of a discovery which  not only enabled the scientist to dls-  tlngulah between human anil Other  mammalian blood, hut likewise could  Indicate Ihe condition of the hlood.  Tbe blood proved lo be that ol un  anaemic person, and the murdered  girl had been shown to have been  treated for anaemia by a doctor.  The Age of Fish.  Until within recent years Ihere had  been ascertained no trustworlhy way  of finding out the ate of fish. II has  been shown that mere size docs not  Indicate the age. HelblBch, Helncke,  and others have discovered that many  of the boues, scales, mid otoliths of  fishes have annual age-rings, resembling those In tree trunks, and by  means of these Professor Wallace and  others have now determined the rate  of growth of plaice, showing that  some specimen! attain the age of 26,  or even as much as 29 years. Age  can now be correlated with size and  weight, although, It appears that the  sexes have a different rate of growth.  Have you Bought  Property in the City yet?

KELOWNA FURNITURE CO.  " We Make Htrntt Happy."  President of G.N.R.  Penticton  Visits  Commenting on the visit to  Penticton of prominent officials  of the G.N.R., the "Herald " says :  Ihe visit to Penticton of Louis  W. Hill, president of the Great  Northern Railway Co., and seven  of the most prominent officials of  his Btaff, lends color to rumors that  have been afloat for some time  past, with respect to the intention  of the southern railway magnates  to extend the track into British  Columbia, and through to the coast  at an early date. The statement  made by premier R. McBride on  March 18 last, that "J. J. Hill, of  the Great Northern, was also waking up, and it was on the cards  that the line would be continued  shortly from Oroville lo Penticton ;  in fact he might assure his audience  that construction might be commenced at once," was hardly considered at the time to be more  than an election cry. But evidence  has been forthcoming in the  renewed activity of the Hill directorate in pushing on work in the  Wenalchee valley, that the premier  was fully aware of the value of his  prediction. It is on the tapis that  grading from Oroville north, will  start immediately. This fits in with  the statement of president L. W.  Hill during his brief visit. " We  are out," he asserted emphatically,  " to do the best we possibly can  for the fruit growers of the Okanagan valley, and will shortly send  in men to report on trade conditions who understand the country."  With the growing traffic in the  valley and the increased fruit production, additional transportation  will be welcomed. With three  railways through the valley prospects are bright for the inhabitants  of this portion of British Columbia.  Death of King of Denmark  King Frederick VIII. of Denmark  died unaccompanied and un-  attended in a street in Hamburg,  Germany, last week of apoplexy.  The king was travelling incognito  on his return from a long trip to  the south, where he had been  convalescing after a seiious attack  of inflammation of the lungs. With  the queen and royal suite he took  quarters at the Hamburghof Hotel  About IU o'clock at night the  king left the hotel unaccompanied  for his usual stroll befoie retiring.  He had gone only a short distance  when he was overcome in the street  by a sudden attack of apoplexy  He fell unconscious to the pavement and died instantly. Not  being recognized as a person of so  great prominence his body was  rushed to the nearest hospital in  an automobile, and was there fourd  later by a partv who had set out  in search.

To make a success  one must be prepared to stick to  it, like a barnacle on a ship's  bottom. Advertising doesn't jerk ;  it pulls. It begins very gently at  first, but the pull is steady. It is  likened to a team pulling a heavy  load. A thousand spasmodic, jerky  pulls will not budge the load,  while one-half the power in steady  effort will start and keep it moving."

I PHONE 19  Marble Made From Ashes  All the world knows that ashes  are the last solid residue of combuf-  tion and compose the essence of  earthly materials, minerals, salts,  potash, soda, phosphates, etc. The  uses to which ashes may be put  have not been supposed various ;  they serve in the preparation of  various lyes, sometimes to improve  the character of the soil, under certain conditions in the manufacture  of brick, always with a view to  furnishing some desired chemical  property, but these applications of  ashes are always secondary.  Recently a German engineer has  invented a way to transform ashes  into marble of exceptional beauty  which is su seep tabic to the highest  polish. He refuses to divulge the  secret, though large inducements  have been made to him by owners of marble quarries. It is a matter chemical synthesis, of course,  but it is said that the only visible  apparatus is a small gas stove together with what resembles a copying presB. With these implements  plus the secret he holds, he has  manufactured a medium sized slab  of marble in half an hour.  The death took place last Thursday at Victoria of Miss Agnes  Deans Cameron, the well known  writer and traveler, who passed  away at half past ten in the morning, death being due to pneumonia  following an operation for appendicitis.

A Church of England service  will be held at Mr. G. Reid's on  Sunday afternoon next.  The yellow peril is not serious  here at present, but look out for  French mustard and yellow mustard.

You do not require field glasses  or magnifying glasses to see what  intensive cultivation can do on a  ten or twenty-acre ranch; you  have only to look at Mr. J. Ball's  fruit t.ees at 4 years of age. If  reflects great credit on the wny the  land has been worked does the  splendid growth of trees and  flourishing appearance of things  generally.  Cold and rubies have been found  in small quantities in the brook  running through Naramata, known  as camp creek.  A. S. Dawson, chief engineer of  the departmentof natural resouraes  of the C. P.

Other concrete structures will coat  $300,000. Not less than 30 steel  bridges will be erected at a cost of  $100,000. The new works will  irrigate one hundred thousand  acres.  A dispatch from the Old Country states that Premier McBride has  practically decided that the new  British Columbia provincial offices  in London will be either in the  Strand, near the Savoy hotel or in  the Aldwich area, most probably  the latter. Before finally deciding  he will consult Premier Borden regarding the intentions for the new  Dominion offices. Premier McBride says while they are about it  it is better to do the thing properly.  The scheme will probably cost a  quarter of a million dollars. Mr.  McBride had a confidential interview with Mr. Winston Churchill,  the first lord of the admiralty.
