To His Worship .the   Mayor and
Aldermen of the„ Corporation.  !
Gentlemen, ,
In the  name  of the   Kelowna
• Hospital Society, and on behalf of
the Hospital, we beg. to  solicit a
substantial grant in .J aid, from'die
municipal fimdsTduririg the current
year]      ■*-'
That the Hospital "is a necessity
and has proved a boon'to 'the' citizens is beyond question.-''The ex-
% -.cellent work done-by' the  staff- is
.-" vouched for by the  general  corn-
"" meridatiori of'all who  have been
patients in the Institution, and  in
particular the •> institution "received
'special praise, both for fittings and
management,   By-  the     eminent
specialist who was lately here on a
professional visit.
■ Owing to  the requirements of
the Act as  to  special wards and
ad^pmmodation ' for , tuberculosis
patients; we are nott in, a. position
to apply for' 'the' general" government allowance of 5 per caput' of
patients treated in provincial' hospitals   fulfilling .these special requirement-.^ Our hospital is therefore   absolutely  dependent upon
the percentage of paying patients
admitted, and on the generosity of
the public support.
In the Spring of 1908, we received the Government grant of
$5,000 in aid-of construction. This
money had already been anticipat-
—SurSuu tuc-iiGSpitai~was^opened
free of debt. Further accommodation has <iiow' been secured by
the'completion of the basement,
and were are "able to look forward
with-confidence to an increased
measure of usefulness and good
-work.-- ' -	
We enclose herewith the hospital
balance sheet, and shall be pleased
to'give the council'any further information it may deem advisable. -
We are gentlemen,
Your very obedient servants,
(Sgd)   TvW..Stirling, Pres
M. Graham-Gorrie, Sec.
Kelowna Hospital Society
This application . was received
and laid on the table until the estimates for the current year are
prepared.- In the meantime the
Society, was assured that their work
has, the fullest sympathy of the
Council, and as . large a' grant as
possible would be made; consistent
with^ other claims' on " the city's
benevolence.     ,   •   j", >
The city property will now no
longer be' disfigured by notices
and^bills, as theory, cjerk -was instructed to notify the public that
they are fobidden to post notices
on electric light poles and other
city property.
City Engineer , Russel > was. instructed to* get the necessary linoleum to''cover the floor; of the
engine room at the power house.*
By-laws 53, 54 and 55, which
were voted on last Wednesday
were reconsidered' and, finally
passed. |
At a meeting of the Volunteer
Fire Brigade it was decided to' approach the" City Council with a re-:
quest i for certain, supplies and
equipment to be used in connection with the brigade apparatus,
and a committee of Messrs F. Samson,5 J. N. Cameron and W. Jenkins

council with the request The request asks for 12'uniform caps and
12 mouth sponges, 3 Ts to .fit
hydrants, six hose wrenches, hook
and. ladder wagon and one ladder,
high wheels put on small hose
reel, doors of the fire hall fitted
with springs to work easily7alarm
bells erected at convenient places
so as to warn .the -power house
whistle, a room for the brigade to
meet in, and one for" two of 'the.
firemen, chief and. assistant, to
sleep in, near or in the fire hall.
The members of the new brigade
also held an election of officers,
appointing F. Samson, who has
had previous experience at fire
brigade work, to take command,
and J. N. Cameron, as assistant
chief.^ .M. Jenkins was elected
captain, of one hose reel, and W.
Kirkby captain" of the second. The
hook and ladder wagon will be H.

On . Wednesday evening, '. a
branch of the Independent Order
of Oddfellows, Orchard City Not9,
was instituted with a, membership
of twenty-six, eleven old members
and fifteen new ones.     t r <
The evening's ceremonies .commenced with an inaugural  dinner
at the Royal  Hotel,  at which. 76
guests sat  down,  after which  all
adjourned to sthe  lodge room, at

twenty-five from  Vernon  to  help
organize,   the   Summerland. team
putting on the" initiatory degree,
and the Vernon team  putting  on

_ Raymer's Hall was packed last
night to witness the musical comedy presented by the above company, and it appeared -to, be received with'every satisfaction by
the audience.
There were a' number of clever
artists, "Mr. Schmidt," the bogus
Prince, provoking roars of laughter
by his humorous antics, in which
he was well supported by the real
Prince.   ,
The principals were well backed
up.by a large beauty chorus, and
were repeatedly encored.
The rowdyism, ■ incidental to
many performances, in the way of
cat-calls and whistles was in evi"
dence last night at the back of. the
hall, where a number of that class
of public, nuisances were collected.
Branch of Canadian Bible
Society Formed.'
On Tu-sday afternoon the ratepayers were privileged to  see the
city hydrants working for  the] first
time, throwing a jet of water a'con-
siderable  distance    and   forcibly.
City foremanPaul  and  fire  chief
Samson tested all the hydrants and
found  each  one  in perfect  condition.   The water pressure at the
time the tests were made was kept
at   aljout  90  lbs.',  and  with  this
comparatively low pressure  a jet
of water was thrown upwards from
an inch nozzle a good height above'
the Bank of Montreal,  arid  would
appear to  reach  all parts of the
building.     The  pressure  was increased to 125 lbs., and  with  the
same small nozzle a jet of water was
thrown fully 40 ft. over the Raymer
building. Although the water in the
mains is kept at an even pressure
of 90   lbs., it is  but  an  instant's
work for the engineer at the power
house to increase this very "considerably, to  throw  750  gallons  of
water per minute through a   1 I -8
inch nozzle,' and  to work several
hydrants at the same'time.
A trip to the power house to see
the powerful pump working will
be well repaid. This modem piece
of machinery works with a smoothness and quietness almost deceiving when its tremendous-' force is
taken into consideration, and the
simplicity swith which it is regulated
by the water pressure" itself, is an
eyeopener to those not_ versed in
'steam engineering. It pumps with
a steady motion and when the
water in the mains has reached the
regular 90 lbs., the same pressure
regulates the governor of the pump
so that the machine holds the
water, and no more.
Over all,- keeping a watchful eye
may be seen the genial engineer
in charge, W. G." Russel, ever ready
to give a clear explanation of the
machines to those desiring information.     '     -
A Highly Successful Performance.

The Anglican, Presbyterian,
Mjayuat.—«uu—iviemoaisr- v^nurcnes
last Sunday organized a branch of
the Canadian - Bible Society here,
at a mass' meeting held in the
Methodist Church.
The Society, which is interdenominational, is too well known to
need explanation, and is simply a
branch of the British and Foreign
Bible Society.
The following officers and  committee were elected, representing
the different churches in the city:
President—Mr. Curts
Vicd-President—Mr. E. R. Bailey
Secretary—W. A. Skanks
Treasurer—Mr. Geo. Boyer
Committee—Mrs. (Dr.) Wright,
Mrs. Knight, Mrs. Boyce, Mrs. T.
W. Stirling, Mrs. R. E. White, Miss
M. I. Messenger, Mrs. Jas. Harvey,
Mrs. Chas. Wilson, Mrs. Jas. Rae
and D. McEachren.
A scheme is on foot in thq city
to form a Canoe Club. Mr. Wm.
Crawford has' had considerable
correspondence with W. R. Megaw
of Vernon and F. I. Scott of Summerland, who both seem enthus-
iatic about the sport, and working
towards this end in their respective
towns. Mr. Gibbons, Secretary of
the Penticton Athletic -Association
The Kelowna Musical 'and' Dramatic Society's presentation of the
Pirates of Penzance,", was well received   by   the  public and  each
night saw a full house.     The first
night was marked by a slight  nervousness on the part of the  principals and a  little stiffness in the
chorus, which however, wore off in
the succeeding  nights.     The  first
night's proceedings were considerably marred by an ill disposed individual forcing his  way into the
orchestra and creating a  disgraceful  scene, even  going so  far as
striking at the director who has not
long been invalided from the  hospital.   The hall  was  half .Jull  of
spectators at the time, so to  avoid
further trouble the intruder was
allowed  to  remain. {    Fortunately
he  was   not   a   member <of   the
Orchestra. -
. The two succeeding nights were
each an improvement on the proceeding one. Saturday night being
considered best.
Too much credit cannot be given
to Mr. Whitehead, conductor of
the Orchestra and chorus,'and the
Society is also under great* obligation to Mrs. L Dilworth,7who ren^
dered faithful and able services as
pianist at each practise, as" .well ,as
at the performances.
The, principals had each a difficult part to render, but were all
very well played, Frederick and
Mabel, and Ruth and ^the Pirate
King being repeatedly encored., >•
The'sergeant of police came in
for a good share of* applause, and
created much merriment by his
funny, get up,* _nd humorous
acting, n     .    0
Mrs. Thompson and -Miss Dilworth were ' presented • with
bouquets as a'mark of appreciation
during one oi the ' performances,
and each made a decided hit. '
Some of the humorously inclined
of the   audience   also   presented
Bobbie" with bouquets composed
of-"matters vegetable," gaily decorated with coloured ribbons. •
The scenery was»the work of
Messrs. Crowley, Whitehead" and
L. Harvey, after a model - by R .G
Reed, and the Pirates dresses were
made by some' of the Kelowna

His "company purchased $10,000
of the City's electric light debentures, and,we understand that,Mr.
Fullerton wilf make an offer ,to the
city for  the  debentures   recendy-
voted oh by-the ratepayers:   This
speaks ■ very  highly - for" Kelowna

a  desirable   placer for^. investors.
The money market, we are informed  is  now in splendid condition,'
owing, to' the- reaction  after   the
recent, stringency,.and   the large
financial companies are looking for
good investments, haying considerable money to put out. ,
A 'very 'high  tribute  of praise
was payed by Mr, Fullerton to the
city's  pole • line service.    He says
we have the best pole, line he has
seen in Canada, and.that the extent

. A good plan is suggested, that
the four towns unite in sending east
for four war-canoes such as are
used in the Toronto Canoe Club.
This CluVby the way is the largest
in America, having a membership
of 600, and the sport is extremely
popular there.
- If four-canoes are ordered, they
can be bought f.o.b. Okanagan
Landing, at $225.00 each. These
war canoes are 30 feet long, and
are built to carry fifteen paddlers.
The sporting fraternity here will
hold a meeting tomorrow night at
8 o'clock to make definite arrangements, and to organize. All interested are asked to attend, and
help make this successful.

By-law No. 56, which passed its
third reading at the last Council
meeting, and will be submitted to
the popular vote on the 1 Oth of
March, is the next question to be
decided by the citizens.
At the time of the municipal
•elections in the early part of the
year, 1 15 votes were cast in favor
of purchasing the A. & T. grounds
and 87 against. It might be well
to run over the pros, and cons, of
this business, and as far as we are
able lay the proposition of the
Agricultural and Trades Association before our readers, that they
may be in a position to give the
matter their careful thought.
The proposition of the A. & T.
Association, is to hand over to the
city the Association's exhibition
ground, about seventeen acres, the
city to assume responsibility, and
pay off the indebtedness on the
mortgage, about $2500.00.
By-law No. 56 is to authorize
$7,000.00, which will cover the indebtedness, the removing of buildings from the street to the fair
grounds, painting and renovating,
as well as the purchase of an extra
2 acres of land needed to make a
good half mile race course. The
city would have full control of the
grounds, allowing the Association
free use of the ground during two
weeks at fair time, the city to have
a percentage of the gate receipts.
Outside of the fair time, the
grounds can be used by the city as
recreation grounds, for lacrosse,
and other sports.
The Agricultural & Trades Association hope, by being relieved
of the indebtedness of the grounds,
to devote their time and funds to
the exhibition, making it a greater
success than it has been -of recent
years, - and giving greater encouragement to exhibitors. They
realize the importance of a successful exhibition to the city as well
as to the Okanagan.
On the  other hand,  objections
out of their city to large eastern
houses who employ "sweated"
labour, because forsooth, they can
save 10c or so. We have in the
city well stocked stores where
good value may be obtained, and
the proprietors are dependent on
the community for support. It is a
united front that makes the town.
If you want bread, patronize your
local bakers ; if you want groceries
there are those here who can supply you with the best; if it is clothing, why send   down  to   T	
E 's, when you have clothiers
in your midst ? And why' send
down to the eastern cold storage
companies, who monopolize the
meat trade as one   of  our  largest
institution evidently does, judging
from what one can see at the
wharf, an institution too that derives
its revenue almost entirely from
the city.
It might be well to point out to
our readers, that while we are glad
to publish communications that
are of interest to the public, they
must be signed by the name of
the sender, tho not necessarily for
publication. We have received
several anonymous letters, some,
dealing with organizations and
public bodies, criticizing and condemning, but which we have not
printed, and do not intend to
print, without the sender having
his or her name affixed.
Every citizen is entitled to his
own convictions, but it is not to be
expected of a news-paper to be
the medium for assertions which
may or may not be well grounded,
unless the writer is prepared to

Editor Orchard City Record,
Kelowna, B.C.
Dear Sir,
The question of the organization of a
Teachers' Association in the Okanagan
Valley has received some consideration
and there is no doubt of the benefit to be
derived from such an Association if the
teacherr, or a sufficient number of them,
deem it advisable. The membership
might also include Trustees and others
interested in educational matters.
As principal of the Kelowna Public
School, I may say that the members of our
staff are ready to co-operate in any workable scheme that may be devised by communication, through the press, or otherwise, as to date of meeting, extent of territory, etc.
Yours very truly,
Feb. 23rd, 1909.

Liner's Voyage Without Rudder.
The St. Louis, of the American line, arrived off Sandy Hook on Monday, having
finished the last 500 miles of her voyage without the use of her rudder. For
the purpose of steering she utilized her
twin screws, though she was compelled to
slow down to about twelve knots an hour.
Panama Canal Soon Ready.
At the conclusion of Mr. Taft's inspection of the Panama Canal works on Monday, Colonel Goethals, the chief engineer
of the Isthmian Canal Commission, said to
the President-Elect, "I can promise you
that ships will be passing through the
Panama Canal by New Year's Day, 1915."
In a previous article on the above subject I referred to the prevailing inexperience
in this important part of a fruit-grower's
work which is so evident in this district,
and pointed out the danger of spoiling the
young trees through improper treatment.
In this brief article I will try to give a few
simple hints for beginners
In the first place it may be as well to
call to mind what is the object of pruning.
We know that a tree left to itself will produce an abundance of wood, and in a short
time will be a mass of weakly ill-placed
shoots or twigs. It is to counteract this
tendency on the part of nature to become
overcrowded that the gardener resorts to
pruning. It is true that the tree, if planted
and left alone, will in due time produce
fruit, but it is also true that the fruit on the
well-trained pruned tree will be much
finer and wo/th a great deal more than
that growing on the neglected one. The
first object of the pruner then must be to
direct the growth and energy of the tree
into proper channels, for it is as true of the
tree as it is of the child—" Train it up in
the way it should go, and when it is old it
will not depart from it."
To do this you must begin at the beginning and start right. The most common
mistake is as before said, to let far too
many twigs remain. These twigs in a
year or so become ^branches, and when
they have to be removed it means more or
less a check to the tree, and a waste of
what we might term growing power
Some growers want to begin gathering fruit
too „early, and argue that by letting their
trees grow away just as they will, they will
the sooner be getting a return .for their
outlay. Those who are thus in a hurry
must remember that it is best to lay a good
foundation and wait till the tree is sufficiently matured to carry a crop without injury.
We will take the newly planted year old
tree, or it may be two years old. ■,There
are two methods of training or pruning
these. One is the open head style, in
which the upright centre shoot is cut out
to the level of the side shoots. Of the latter
five of the best are then selected, growing
about equal distances apart, and shortened
back to about six or eight inches to a good
strong bud. Be sure this bud points outward and not inward. The aim 'of the
pruner is to keep the growths extending
away from the mam stem. The other
system of growing is to retain the centre
stem as a leader, as in the-pyramid style.
In this case you select four or five, of the
best-placed side shoots, shortening back'as
before described. Then shorten the centre
shoot also, but leave it about a foot above
the side shoots
Don't leave too many of the side shoots
on. Five will be quite enough. Most
beginners make the.mistake of leaving too
many. In pruning trees that have been
planted say two or three years, I always
cut out clean back to the old wood all the
shoots or twigs that are growing in towards
the middle of * the tree. This I do first.
ThenJ take out those that might be growing across, for if these are left they will in
the course of a year or so spoil the appearance of any tree. Next 1 thin out and
shorten back such new growths as are
necessary for the extension of branches,
only retaining those that grow out from
the tree straight, thus always aiming to
keep the centre of the tree clear, with
every branch coming away in such a
position that they do not cross each other.
As I have before said, most amateurs leave
too much wood on, but care must be taken
to avoid going to the other extreme, and
cutting off every bit of young wood. I
have seen trees that have looked just like
a few upright bare sticks, with all the
valuable young wood cut short back.
In conclusion I would point out that some
varietiesjieed_special treatment,_but_it_is
only practice -and observation that can
enable you to become acquainted with the
different habits and the treatment needful.
I will have something to say about the
pruning of the peach in an article on
peach culture. Judging from what I have
seen in the neighborhood it is very imperfectly understood at present. I hope these
few remarks may be interesting and a help
to those who 'arc new to the work.

Kerry Gow.
Woman Cabdrioer's Misfortune.
i _*£_'  v
Marie Lejau, a young woman cabdriver,
hailing from Brittany, is being sued in Paris
by a widow for the loss of her husband, an
elderly wine merchant, who was killed by
her cab the first day she mounted the box.
She thought the fact that she obtained her
licence was enough to show .her capability,
but.the judge ventured to differ. Judgment was reserved.   •      < • > <■ '
One of those rare treats in the line of
amusement which is offered from time to
time by reliable managers will be the appearance of the Kerry Gow at the opera
house,-Wednesday March 3rd. The story
of Joseph Murphy's famous Irish Domestic
Drama, Kerry Gow, which means the vil-
lagei.blacksmith, is founded on facts and
tells of Don O'Hara, smith, irr love with a
girl who also has another suitor, Valentine'
Hay. '-    ; - »'
As it is a crime punishable by transportation or death to have pikes—formidablp
weapons—in one's possession, Hay causes
several to be hidden in the blacksmith-
shop.      ,      •        '
Dan is arrested, but "escapes from prison
just at the time aa the rial maker of the
pikes confesses ,on his death bed to the
conspiracy against O'Hara. Dan returns
to \ his forge and shoes the horse which
saves his.swecthcar's home by winning _
great race. By means of1 carrier pigeons
Nora is informed of the result of the heats
as _e(race is run andtherpUy ends prettily and happily.
The good Irish' songs introduced by Dan
are pleasing features to th.-performance. *

** Serious Omission.
jly imlgiiboi Brown came to the gafl-
ien fence and said:
"flow do you do your grafting?"
"My grafting?'* said I.
"Yes—grafting .ipple tiees I want
to try it myself"'
"Oh!" I'exclaimed "Yes, yes' Well,
id the first place, I begin by lying—
tbat is, I h.'hi bed to think the w bole
tiling out in every detail. I watch my
opportunity, and on the first fine day I
steal a few houis flora my business.
Then 1 borrow a saw-a steel one—
and with it I rob the tree upon which
I want to graft of some'of it&'l.ngur
branches This 1 .try to do in Mich a
« ay that the loss of the branches will
not be noticed .These limbs should
not be" left lying—that is, lying on the
ground They are unsightly and may
attract the attention " of "pa_.ei.by.
They should be hustled behind the latticework screen at once . So fai so
good Now, let me see-^oli/yes! I
iob»another tree of a few twigs having buds on them and insert them In
tbe ends of the sawed branches*on the
tree Then I take some bees\v.i\ and
tallow and melt them together Thia
must be thoroughly mixed Work it
for all you're worth to make it pliable.
Finally with this 1 tryto hide all appearance-of the ■ graft,, from sunlight
and air, and there you are—the job is
done." . •
'T see," said Brown, "and 1 thlnli
I'm foxy enough to do the trick the
first time trying.   Many thanks '!
Shortly after I heard" Brown telling
his wife how I explained the process*
This is the way he had it:
"First," he says, "you must be a
good liar; then you watch your chnnce.
and steal a half day train Hie company's time; then you steal a -.aw;
(hen you defraud the. tree of some
branches, which you must hide, so nobody will got on: then you rob somebody's tree ot twig.s, put them, i'i the
ends of the branches and cover your
tracks with beeswax and tallow "
Said Brown's wife: "I don't think
that man can be trusted He ha:-, two
<:lHds of. grafting mixed, and, besides,
he didn't tell you' where to steal the
apple trees."

Grenfell Notes.
Mr. James Bamford sustained a nasty
knee twist, while playing in the gymnasium last Friday. Though not able to
walk with ease, he is now able to be out
and appears to be improving more rapidly than was at first anticipated.
Born, at Grenfell on February 14th, 1909;
to Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Jones, a daughter.
A great many people in Grenfell are at
present confined to their homes, through
Memorial to Captain Cook.
A proposal has been mad by Sir Joseph
Carruthers, the ex-premier of New South
Wales, that the great service to the Empire
of Captain Cook should be commemorated
by a monument in London. The subject
was brought before the Executive Com-
mittee of the British Empire League at a
recent meeting by the Right Hon. Herbert
Samuel, MP., who represents the district
of Cleveland, in the North Riding of Yorkshire, of which Cook was a native, and
where his fame is greatly cherished. It
was decided that such a monument should
be erected, and a committee, with Mr.
Samuel as chairman, was formed. Steps
will be taken forthwith to enlist the co-operation of all who are likely to be interested
in the movement-

King John's Lost Treasure.
A great deal of local  interest  has been
aroused   in   the   possibility  of recovering
from the Wash, on the east coast of England, the treasure lost by King John when
he crossed the Wash.    In a paper read at
a meeting of the Cambridge Antiquarian
Society, Mr. W. H. St. John Hope, after
detailing  the   royal  itinerary   prior to the
disastrous engulphing of the baggage train,
Mr. St. John Hope said that, collating the
three  best  accounts,   he   found   they  all
agreed that the catastrophe occurred in the
Wellstream, King John's distress   of  mind
resulting  in   his  death  a  few days later.
He  had   left  King's Lynn on October 11,
1216, crossed the river to Wisbech, and
next day journeyed up the Wallstream to
Holbeach, but his train did not travel the
same route. The Wellstream was an estuary
extending inland nearly to  Wisbech,  and
between Cross Keys and Long Sutton was
41 miles  wide.     Within  living   memory
there was a passage over the sands, horses
and carriages being conducted over by a
guide,   This being  the direct route   from
Lynn was most likely taken, but a delayed
start from Lynn caused the tide to turn be-
fore all could make the crossing, and the
quicksands,   still  the terror of the Wash,
swallowed up the carriages and their rich
freightage.   John probably had witnessed
their disappearance himself while waiting
their arrival on the Lincolnshire side. The
essayiat believes the vehicles sank through
the quicksands  till  they   reached  a  firm
stratum, where  he  thinks  they  are still.
The site of the disaster has since under-
gone extensive changes, and the suggested
line of crossing is no longer under water.

Right Honorable Josph Chamberlain.
No statistics are needed to show our
people that temperance reform lies at the
bottom of political, social and moral progress of England. Drink is the curse of
the country; it ruins the fortunes, it injures
the health, it destroys the lives of one out
of every twenty of our population. If I
could destroy to-morrow, the desire for
strong drink in the people of England,
what changes should we see ? We should
see our taxes reduced by millions sterling;
we should see our gaols and workhouses
empty; we should see more lives saved in
twelve months than are consumed in a
century of bitter and savage war.
Al.bama Becomes A Prohibition
At midnight, December 31st. last, the
bar-rooms of Alabama closed their doors,
and total prohibition now prevails through
out the state.
It is reported that before the closing
hour of the old year large quantities of
beer and whiskey were freely dispensed,
or sold at very low prices, because the
liquor men would not be able lo dispose
of them later on, and this final act led to
some drunkenness as a feature of the termination of the old regime.
Already, however, the good results of
the new conditions are making themselves
manifest in all parts of the state and an ab- '
undance of further evidence will without
doubt be furnished for the support of tho
general cause of p.ohibition.
Victory For Georgia Prohibition.
Judge Newman, of the United States Circuit Court in Atlanta, recently refused to^
consider a petition attacking the constitut-'
ionality of the Georgia Prohibition law.
The suit was brought by a .brewing
company and sought to have the court enjoin the officials of Atlanta from prosecuting alleged violations ,of the law, and was _
refused on the'ground that the matterwas
not one for th« action of the federal courts
and could only come to them by a way of
a writ of error from tho state Supreme
Court. Undoubtedly the liquor interests
will now transfer their attack to the state
courts where, according to all indications
they will meet with a similar defeat. .    ■. -

To Operate This Masterpiece Ah
the First Necessity.
Of all the engines cunninglj dew
by ninu not one can equal that uia_i( • ■
piece of construction, the en#ine uf i!i
human frame. To ran that engine a.r
Is the first necessity. Construct it Im >v
you will, the greater part of t!i'
energy which feeds a power plant ia
lost before It reaches the applying
iii.u-Uiue. The body only has the power
»f using energy really economically
and efficiently. ItB food Is its fuel.
To be available all the constituents <>(
that food must bo burned, producing
heat and power. For that burning the
oxygen of the air is essential. Equally
true is it that nitrogen must be present to prevent the rapid combustion
which would take place in oxyger
alone. But, whether the combust in:
be fast or slow, the action is the same
The body burns the carbon and hydrogen of its food and gives out thf
oxides of these substances, cnrhoi
dioxide (carbon acid gas) and hydroger
oxide (water). The water that is
formed within the body by the burn
Ing of hydrogen Is of comparatively
slight importance in a consideration ol
the vital questions of the effect of city
air upon the individual, but the other
factor, the carbon dioxide formed in
the body, is of direct importance -

One of the Many Tragedies Enacted In
It is not so very long ago that cannibalism was rife throughout Polynesia, so that to be killed, cooked and
eaten was the almost invariable fate
of sailors who chanced to be so unfortunate as to be cast away on any of
the outlying little visited islands
Perhaps the most awful tragedy of
the kind on record was that which
happened in connection with the lo^s
of the St Paul, Captain Pennnrd. while
on a voyage from Hongkong to Sydney. This fine steamship carried, he-
sides a full crew, 827 passengers, mostly emigrants. '
On Sept 30, 1858, she was wrecked
on the island of Bossel, but all got
safely on shore. A little later the captain and eight of the crew left the
island In search of assistance and were
picked up by tho Prince of Den
mark schooner. Erreatvally the French
steamer Styx was dispatched to the
island and brought away one emigrant The remaining 326 had been
massacred and devoured by the natives.-Pearson's Weekly.
Philadelphia's Antl-tipping Scheme.
A Philadelphia acquaintance has invented a way of getting rid of the
"brushing" nuisance. He places a
silver quarter In the hollow of his
right hand and, turning to the boy
who is pretending to find dust upon hi«
clothes, says: ' ^
"You are such a tremendous "brush-
er' 1 will giv you this moaey If -you
can brush it out of my hand." ■
"Yes. sir." ansvnjrs the boy* with
glee unless he'has tried the act previously. In that case he gives up the
Job.  *
As a general proposition, the most
facile ""brushing"* will not sweep a
coin off \A human hand. Why this
happens to be true will be less understood nfter the reader has tried it himself. One might almost say that a
coin cannot be brushed with a whisk
broom off the back as well as out ot
the palm of a hand.
Give the boy three tries and then
return   the   money   to your pocket.
