This report was under discussion
for some tijne, and the present neglect of some citizens in complying with the sanitary by-laws mentioned.,; The sanitary service of the
city has been before the council
for some past, and as the only way
out of the .difficulty will be to enforced-by Jaw referring to these
matters, the scavenger will be instructed to report all cases where
the law1 is not complied with, and
steps taken accordingly.

One of the many effects of the
Spokane success is to make nurserymen anxious to obtain cuttings
from the trees which bore Kelowna's prize fruit.
In a letter from a nursery company in Kansas to Mayor DeHart
the company enquires what number of scions can be cut from each
variety that was used at the show,
and at what price per thousand
can scions be furnished them.
The company believe that an
agreement should be entered into
by nurserymen to give greater care
in selecting individuals of each one
of the old varieties that are worthy
of propogation, in order that a perfect breeding up system could be
introduced, and as a matter of
course, first-class fruit cultivated.
A remarkable case of attempted
theft is reported this week by-John
Carsarao. ' During the early hours
.on Monday morning, the inmates
of Caraarso- ranch were disturbed
by'the the barking of dogs, and a
noise iri'the yard." Dressing"* hurriedly, they- went out to see what
was„wrong, dnd.found' that some
quarters of-beef that-had been left
hangingin the yard, had been cut
down. The' thieves however having
disturbed the dogs, decamped
without taking the beef. An attempt was made to track uthe parties, but beyond discovering that a
man and woman Were the culprits,
nothing definite was founds A
reward is Jbeing7 offered for information' leading to the discovery of
the parties.,
The monthly meeting of the
Kelowna Board of Trade was held
on Wednesday evening, president
Pitcairn in the chair.
The minutes of the last meeting
were read and approved.
A large amount of routine business was transacted,-.and considerable correspondence was laid before the board.
The matter of advertising the
Valley in the Old Country and
United States was discussed at
length. It was felt that the Okanagan Valley should be more widely
advertised than it is at present, and
the matter was left for the publicity committee to deal with.
The report of the delegates to
the Associated Board of Trade
meeting at Armstrong, was submitted by Mr. DuMoulin, and adopted.
The question of what was to be
done with the land won at the
Spokane fair, created a "long debate. The deeds of the property
were handed over to the Board by
Mayor DeHart during the evening.
It was proposed that' the land be
kept and* donated as prizes at any
future National Apple Show.' This
was however, over-ruled, and ra
recommendation made that if" any
land was offered as prizes at all!
by the Kelowna Board of Trade, it
should be Okanagan land. The
members'of-the Board /finally' de^
cided to leave the Spokane property'in the hand's of Mayor DeHart
and Mr.' Kerr to convert into'cash,
and turn over to the Board.
All the cups, diplomas and.medals won at Spokane were turned
over to the Board, and will be arranged in a case for permanent
display. -
Mr. Pitcairn was appointed as a
delegate to' the railway commission
at Victoria, with Mr. Raymer as
alternative. 7 .\
A number of members were appointed as delegates to accompany
Mr.-Lang, Superintendent of roads
and bridges for this district, to inspect the Government work on the
Mission Ctgek.'-and a vote of
thanks to the government passed,
for the work done.       "       -

meeting, Feb. 10, 1908, were read
and adopted.
In commenting on the past
year's work, Mr. Dilworth stated
that during that period, , several
fruit speakers on subjects of interest to farmers and fruit grower's
had visited Kelowna, but the"
meetings, were not as well attended
as they should be. He urged that
members should take an active interest in the proceedings of the
Institute, in order that it might be
of material benefit to the farming
community.' , ,

Railways submitting the following
recommendation :—"We,' of the
Osoyoos Farmers' Institute, of Kelowna,-learn that there is a vacancy
on the Railway Commission owing
to the death of. the Hon/ Thos.
Greenway, and whereas we believe
that the vacancy will be filled by a

The annual meeting of the Kelowna Retail Clerks' Association,
was held in Lequime's Hall, on
Thursday evening last.
E. Wilkinson took the chair, and
the Secretary read the minutes of
the last meeting and also gave the
financial statement.
The business of the evening,
which was the election of officers
for the ensuing year took place,
and it was decided that a deputation composed of Messrs. Goodwin,-Dick, Budden and Currie,
should wait on the merchants of
the city, in respect to the closing of
the Stores on Thursday afternoons,
as was done last year. It was further decided to ask for the early
closing to be extended a, month
longer than last year, making it
from the first Thursday in April to
the last in jDctober.
The following officers were

The Royal Bank pf Canada have
purchased the corner lot no.l5, next
to the'Rowcliffe Block where they
will shortly erect a new home for

other evidence of the rapid growth
of the City as the Kelowna branch
of the Bank has only been established since September, 1907.
Several members complained of
not receiving the usual Government reports and'bulletins in connection with the Institute work, to
which they were entitled. The
Secretary-had taken this matter 'up
with Mr. Hobson, Deputy Minister
of Agriculture, and it was expected
that all members would be supplied
in due course.
It was decided that in future all
members should be notified of Institute meetings by having a notice
mailed to them, as the poster that
have hitherto been used, had not
proved satisfactoey, on account of

A letter from the Department of
Agriculture in connection with a
stock-judging demonstration to be
held at Kelowna was read and was
approved of by most, although
there was some objection on the
ground that there was not much
stock-raising here". These objections
were, however, over-ruled by' the
majority, who felt the need of being
instructed in stock-judging. It was
claimed that the last meeting of a
similar nature was invaluable to
stock-breeders, and a resolution was
finally passed asking the'Depart-
to send Mr. Macrae here. Messrs.
were appointed as a committee to

A matter of general interest, and
which is receiving the' attention of

this part of British Columbia, and
of grain-growers in the Eastern

appointment of Mr. John D. Hunt
to the Board of Railway Commissioners.- Mr. McLean stated that
recommendations are being made
throughout Manitoba and the
Northwest that Mr. Hunt .be appointed to the Board, and' this
movement isreceiving the endorsement of fruit growers in this district, where Mr.' Hunt holds considerable fruit land.'"< It was urged
that being interes1_d' in- fruit culture,'he would be in a position, to

Cruelty is inborn in every member of the human race, and it is
one of those persistent-relics of our
barbarous ancestors which makes
itself felt whenever the watchfulness of our more civilized nature is
relaxed. A healthy ten-year-old
schoolboy is usually a cruel little
fellow to anything and everything
within his power, but to allow him
to harness, or rather rope up the
household canine to his little sleigh
or cart and then drag it and choke
it along the sidewalks is to say the
least of it not very kind to " man's
faithful friend." Kelowna boys
are no worse and no better than
others"" in this respect, but it is a
practice which should either be
stopped or be well looked after by
the parents and the authorities.
The meeting called for last Monday when the Council was to meet
the public to discuss ways and
means of organizing a fire brigade
came very near to being a mere
farce.. Not one of our many storekeepers put in ari appearance to
help along this business, although
many were loud in claiming the
need of one. Here we have a
lumber yard, furniture store, hardware stores, general stores, besides
many others, and their respective
owners were evidently too lethargic
to turn out to arrange for the protection of their own property. Do
these gentlemen think that the
young men employed around town
are so overflowing with public
spirit as to band themselves together
to protect property when the owners themselves do not care a rap
whether it goes to blazes or not?
Do they expect a brigade formed
and maintained without offering
any inducement? The lack of
interest is a disgrace to the town,
although we can see one or other
of these gentlemen dancing around
in a great state one of these days
in smoke. The interest he will
evince then will be a little too late.
But who will he blame ? Every
business man in the city will be
directly and individually responsible for not having an efficient
brigade after they have had the
chance of discussing this important
matter with the City Council and
have simply ignored it.
The Editor, Orchard City Record,
Dear Sir,—I read in the. Daily. Province
a  short  time  ago the report of a speech
made by an English gentleman at Spokane,
either while the great  Apple   Show  was
being held, or directly after it closed.    I am
sorry that I  mislaid the paper containing
the report, so that I cannot now give the
name of the speaker.   However, he was
the representative of an English fruit salesman, attending the show.   After the show
some  of  the   fruit-growers in the disirict
held a conference with the English fruit
men with the object of firming out what
apples would be likely to find favour with
English  buyers.   This   particular speaker
was reported to have said that a red apple
would not sell in  England.    He   said   the
English taste was peculiar.    The apple in
demand  there  would  be  a  hard   green
apple with a very acid or tart flavor, and
that the British public would not buy the
nicely  colored apple.   Now Sir,   some of
the growers in this valley may have read
the report of this speech, and I believe it is
expected that after the wonderful success
of the  Kelowna  exhibits at Spokane, the
English fruit buyers will endeavour to obtain  supplies  from  this  district.       It   is
possible that some of our growers will purpose planting varieties that  would   be  in
demand by these buyers   for   the   English
market.     Supposing  they   had  read   the
report of speech   referred   to above, they
might conclude that it would be of no use
to plant the red varieties.    Now I am quite
sure that the speaker at  that  meeting  of
Washington fruit growers did not correctly
state the true taste of the British public in
apples.   I have been a grower in England,
and also a retailer.    I was in the business
either as grower or seller for oVer twenty
years, and I think I know something of the
class of fruit in demand there.:   It is true
that neither the Snow, or Fameuse.nor the
Mcintosh Red  would  never  be  popular
there as here.    They would be too soft and
sweet.   The apple for the English market
must be firm, juicy, and of a brisk flavor,
but  of  as  good   a  color  as  possible.    I
always found that a   good   looking  bright
colored fruit sold best.    As for flavor, to
my mind the apple that approaches nearest
to the English taste  of  any  that  I   have
found in this  country  is Grimes' Golden.
I feel sure that if that variety would ship
alright, it  would  become  a,vfavouri^ -I
will mention a few  of  the .varieties 'that
were most in demand on the market.there
three years ago when I left England. .First
and foremost  was  the Blenheim Orange,
always   commanding   the   highest   price,
Ribston  Pippin, Wellington, Cox, Orange
Pippin,  Peasgood's Nonsuch, and Golden
Russett.     These   were   the  leaders  and
always good sellers.     I believe Blenheim
Orang to be one of, if not the best apple
ever raised.,- How it succeeds here I cannot
say, although I have  bought  some grown
in this province;. Certain it is they would
always make a good price if they could be
grown here.    I have grown a large quantity,
of  them,  and   there is nothing to beat it.
It is not a quick bearer though, requiring
three  or  four  more  years   to   come7to
maturity  than  some  others,   but ^ if .the
Okanagan growers really desire or intend
to cater for the English trade, they could
not make any mistake in planting some of
this  grand  variety.    The  varieties  more
generally grown here that I feel sure would
suit the  English   taste  are Northern Spy,
Grimes'   Golden,   Spitzenberg,   Jonathan,
Wine   Sap,  and  Winter Banana.    I hope
these few remarks .will be of interest to
apple growers here,_and, perhaps lead to;a_

The Wife and Her Husband.
There are men and women who seem
to be lacking in an ability to be grateful,
but generally speaking the weakness lies
rather in the expression of that gratitude.
We are all of us thankful for health, and
yet how seldom do we ever mention our
gratitude to God. We are grateful for a
home and friends and yet how often we
forget to mention it. It may be said that
the important thing is the feeling that God
knows our hearts and knows we are thankful and that it is unnecessary for us to be
constantly telling Him about it. Is' that a
satisfactory answer?
Suppose a wife knows that her husband
loves her, is she satisfied with that, fact
and indifferent as to whether he ever
mentions it or shows it > The tragedy of
thousands of homes is that the wives are
yearning for those little expressions of love
discussion  in  your columns which would
be profitable as well as interesting.
I remain, Sir, yours faithfully,
Apples and Insomia.       >
A medical writer declares that the apple
is such a common fruit that very few
persons become familiar with its medicinal
properties. The best thing just before
going to bed, he says, is to eat an. apple.
"Persons uninitiated in the mysteries of the
fruit," he continues, "are likely to throw
up their hands in horror at the visions of
dyspepsia which such a suggestion may
summon up, but no harm carr come even
to a delicate system by the eating of a ripe
and juicy apple before going to bed. The
apple is excellent brain food, because it
has more phosphoric acid in easily digested shape than any other fruit. It excites
the action of the liver, promotes sound
and healthy sleep, and thoroughly disinfects the mouth. This is not all; the
apple prevents indigestion and throat

' Emperor William is said" to be effacing
himself. The world-Ways knewjhat he
could do almost everything else, and this
establishes his place as a universal genius.
To the fruit-grower, the most
important operation at present
claiming his attention is the winter
pruning of his trees. There is a
considerable difference of opinion
amongst growers in this district as
to the best time to prune. Some
hold that it is not safe to prune
until March. Others say any time
convenient. My own experience
extending over twenty' years leads
me to support the latter view. I
believe that provided it is not done
during a very severe spell of frost,
it does not really matter whether it
is done in January, February, or
early in March, before the sap
begins to flow much. It is well,
therefore, to take advantage of the
mild weather to get the work forward.
My own practice- is to get the
older trees finished first, leaving the
youngest and newly planted tree3
till the last. If there is any danger
in early pruning at all, it would be
to the newer plantations, so that
perhaps it is .well to leave those
till last. x
There has  been   much  written
about pruning in the various works
on gardening,  and many  illustrations and diagrams have been published showing, or rather attempting to show the   amateur   how to
prune.    It is true of this as of all
other skilled work, that one ounce
of practice is  worth   a   pound   of
theory.    It is one thing to read in
book how a thing should be done,
but it is quite another thing to do
it.    It   is   evident to the practiced
eye that there, has been a lot of
inexperience  shown  in   the ~ way
this important work has been done
in this valley.   Some growers seem
to think that pruning means just to
cut  off every  shodf to   a certain
length, regardless of the position of
the shoot.    Others think that it is
good   to   cut  out  all   the  weaker
growths and retain all the stronger
ones, no  matter   how many there
be.    The most common mistake is
to allow the trees to become too
crowded   with    ill-placed   shoots.
These in time grow into branches,-'
which later on have to be removed,
the result being an ill-shaped tree,
and much waste of growth, which
might have been directed into its
proper channels.     Very few men
seem to pay any attention to what
bud   they  cut  back to.    They do
not consider that according to the
position of the top bud they leave,
so the twig which is produced from
that  bud  will  grow in either the
right direction or the wrong.   Certain it is that this most important
branch of a* fruit-grower's work is
very imperfectly understood.   It is
not  to  be wondered at, perhaps,
when    one   remembers   that   the
majority of the growers have been
new to the work, and have had no
practical knowledge of the calling
before taking it up  here.    I have
seen  orchards in  some  parts   of
England  where the farmer, when
he was short of firewood, could go
and get his winter supply of wood
from his apple trees, and still leave
plenty of wood in the tree.    Needless to say that was not the  man
who was making apple growing a
paying proposition.
You may be. sure that it is a
mistake to practice on young trees
if you are not'acquainted with the
wdrkT^'Therfbundarion ~of -a~good
well-grown profitable tree is laid in
its youth. The most skilful pruner
cannot make an ugly ill-balanced
tree into-a well-grown specimen.
Several new growers have said to
me this winter :.•■" Oh, I guess I will
try to do my own pruning. I don't
know much about it, but I will
learn." They are more likely to
spoil their trees in learning, unless
they employ a skilled hand, and
take notice. The art of pruning
has to be acquired by an apprenticeship, and is not learnt in a
season. There is much that could
be written about this subject.
Different species require special
treatment. What is right for the
apple would be wrong for the
plum, and the peach needs a different method from either. I purpose
dealing with peach growing in a
future article.
In conclusion I would impress
upon the grower who .wants to get
the best results to see to it that his
trees are properly and intelligently
pruned. He wjll be well repaid
for a little outlay. '

A new type of torpedo, the construction
of which has been kept secret, has been
mysteriously lost in the English Channel,
and divers are searching the sea-bottom
off Portland in an eflort to recover it. The
torpedo is the invention of Engineer-
Lieutenant S. Hardcastle. It is of the
21-inch type, with the enormous range of
7000 yards—2000 yards more than any
other torpedo in existence—and it has an
average speed of 31 knots, which is sufficient to upset all ordinary gunnery calculations and practically revolutionise naval

The Barbaric Hatpin.
All last year managers and aggrieved
playgoers of the male sex waged war upon
the matinee hat. Some successes the
campaigners achieved, but the oppressor
was never decisively routed. The Auster-
litz or the Marengo of the matinee hat has
yet to be recorded. The thing is with us
in all its terror of threatening brim and
soaring plume again this year. But its
opposite, the small, close-fitting "toque," is
making headway, so that the evil" at the
theatres is a little less rampant than it was.
But if the hat tends to shrink, the hatpin
is bigger and brighter and more murderous
than ever. It has a steel blade like that of
a small baynet; and the hilt or head of
this lethal weapon is sometimes a great
disc of silver, sometimes a huge cameo or
adornment in horn or ivory, sometimes an
iridescent ball of enamel and jeweller's
work. To have an object of this sort bar-
barically twinkling between the eye and
the stage is another and a real grievance of
the man in the back rows of the stalls.

be surrendering something much more important—their charming superiority over
the other sex—"Times of Natal.''

Canadian Partners to Tour England.
The Canadian Government, following
the precedent set by it in former years, has
arranged for the visit by a number of Canadian farmers of British extraction to various parts of the United Kingdom. About
thirty farmers have been selected, of whom
twelve have arrived in London. They will
be followed by the rest of the delegates.
The duty of these farmers is to make a
tour of the agricultural districts of Great
Britain and Ireland, explaining to persons
interested in the subject the conditions of
life in Canada and the opportunities for
settlement on the land, not only in the
Westrbut aiso iiraii'the provinces-in~the"
Dominion. Their ohject is to enlighten
those engaged in agricultural pursuits on
the possibilities offered by the pursuit of
agriculture in Canada.

Snoring and Cioilisatjon.
It is a truism that no one ever heard of a
snoring savage. In fact, if the wild man
of the woods and plains does not sleep
quietly he runs the risk of being discovered
by his enemy, and'the scalp of the 's'norer
would soon adorn the, belt of his crafty
and more quietly sleeping adversary.
With civilisation, however, 'we have
changed all this. The impureT air of our
sleeping rooms induces all mariner of catarrhal affections. The nasal passages afe
the first to become affected. Instead of
warming the inspired air on its way to the
lungs, and remjpving from it the dangerous
impurities with which it is loaded, the
nose becomes obstructed.. * A' part of the
air enters and escapes by the mouth. The
veil of their, palate, vibrates between the
two currents—that through the mouth and
the one still passing.through; the partially
closed nostrils—like a torn sail in, the wind.
The snore, then, means thatthe sleeper_
mouth is partially open, - that ;his. nose is.
partially closed, and; that hisJ lungs are ini
clanger from the. air* hot being properly
warmed and purified. From the continued
operations of these causes—the increase
of impure air in sleeping rooms and permitting-habitual snorers to' escape:killing
and scalping—some scientist has predicted
that in the future all men (and, all women,
too) will snore. It goes;along:with, decay
of the teeth and baldness.—"Health;"      \

An Eccentric Will.
In the year 173(i a gentleman liviD;;
in England named Samuel Baldwyn
died, after a somewhat unhappy married life By his will Mr. Baldwyn
left his property to his yo_ng wife on
tbe condition that she should from lime
to time dance upon bis grave
The motive for this strange request
was evident when the Instructions for
his interment were read Mr. Baldwyn
desired that his remains should be taken by boat to the Needles 'and Hieti
cast in the sea. This singular wish
enahled him to revenge himself on his
wife for past disagreements, and the
widow lost the property, as she could
not fulfill the conditions of ber husband's bequest

ninth and tenth centuries at the bands
