After reading and adopting  the

.,' waited on the council  asking for
^certain  concessions! in -'order.! to)
' enable them to^'placej-a car ■ track
here:     On l 'the ' motion ' of Aid.
Elliott, seconded  by Aid.  Ball  it
was decided that "the city  council

? asked for by tKe G:P.R.-in order
, to give effect to the plan submitted
.   ; by Mr. Ford  as representing the
- company, and that the company
, be requested to furnish the council
^ with a blue print of said plan.
^Mr. L C. Avis asked the council
• to approve of his application for- a
I lease of part of the lake shore beyond the power house.   • He had
published   the,  necessary  notices'
-   . and  fulfilled? all .{requirement^ in

' the publicity committee  for  $500

'_which"the, council had decided ''to
contribute $250.   Mi". Jones strongly urged  the  importance  of this
I line of action as bringing . the. city

'. supported* by-Messrs..Kerr,,Rose

'      In   discussing   this  request the
council appeared  to  fully realize
the importance* of'adequate adver-
k tising, but,some members were  in
doubt as to ..whether the. city, was'
i justified in view of the  many ex-
__4_.p»£ig»Q to incur—rthis—further -ex-

- but finally the delegates, being rep-
' resentative of the leading business

'     A lengthy debate on;lh_'accept-
• ing of tenders for water pipes took
. place on:'.the   reading] of same.'
Tenders were .received, from the
weeds and burn same on Mr,
Spedding. lot, corner* Glenn-Ave.^
and Ethel street. ^ At the^ same
time, ..Id. Ball seconded, by Aid.
Cox move<£ "-"Rat" p:W. Sutherland and Wm. Kinnear be notified
that'if the weeds on the lots owned
by them are riot" cut down and
burned within 21 days from date
of notice, the city clerk will. order
same to be done, and the cost,
charged to the said owners in their
taxes for tKe "current year."
The Aquatic . Association submitted a form of lease for a portion of the lake shore in the park,
and thematter was referred to the
Park commission. ,
The Agricultural' and Trades
Association agreement was brought
up again for, consideration, the
discussion lasting until late in thec
evening. Very much'the same
groiinds, as at the last meeting
were - gone over, and eventually
the following amendments made:
Ball-Rowcliffe—'That the following amendments be .made in the
agreement ' between the" A. & T.,
Association and the city. Clause
5~*to "read as 'follows,- The city
agrees to buy sufficient land and
to change die" race "track"* to"'"run.
north and south and to fence same.'
Clause 8 to read as follows: .The,
cityvagrees to hold the; grounds for

poseaTmtil such time as it jis mutually agreed between the eity and
the A., _ Tf Association td, dispose

Amongst the correspondence
read was a petition from the property owners on Lawrence street,
asking for a .sidewalk - to be constructed and,2 or 3 lights ,to be
erected.—Referred to <! Board of
Works. ?
A letter from the Hinton Electrical Co., enclosing a tender for installing a complete fire alarm system. .A full report was also received from the same, people, regarding the test of the municipal
plant, showing same to be considerably underated as , regards output,'and'that it compares" favour-'
ably with any plant in the. county.

Boating Accident
~       O-th-Lok.
Mr. J. W. Wilks of this city was
very close to a watery grave on
Saturday, afternoon, and; but "for
the tunely aid of Mr. W. McKinley,
would undoubtedly have periehed
in the bitterly cold water. Messrs.
Wilks and McKinley left-the shore
here in separate boats, about'2:30,
to row across the lake, Mr. Wilks
intending to visit Chaplain ..ranch,
and.McKinley .going to his ^own
place.     „
About" a' niile 'out, Mr7'Wilks
got up to pull in the boat's painter
which was dragging in the water,
and in doing so- slipped, immediately falling over the" side of * his
skiff. Being a good swimmer, he
was able to recover the boat, but
unfortunately in trying to climb jn,
capsized it. At this juncture Mr.
McKinley rowed up and" seized
his friend by the wrist. ^
In this position they\ had to remain foi about 35 minutes, "as, Mr.
McKinley's skiff was too light ■ to
allow *him - dragging Mr". "-1 Wilks
aboard. jThe^ icy» watery and distance frdmshore made thingsjook
as tho' the case was hopeless, but
finally, Joe Yept, Jas. Russel_and
Paul Smith, cigar makers, observing the accident rowed out to help,
closely followed by Jim ' Campbell
in a motor launch. Mr. Wilks was
quickly^released from :his- unenviable positron and hurried ashore
and to ' bed, and is' feeling Very
little ill effects from. his long immersion. <!,!„ - .   ,.„{'".
Dr. Boyce's Camp

Some .Useful and  Interesting
-Lectures for Farmers.
Methodist Women's
Missionary Convention
Mr. C. M. McRae, who gave two
live stock demonstrations on Monday, met with very little encouragement to come here . again- for the
same purpose.' Judging from the
small attendance'at Raymer's Hall
last night, the farmers, and horse
owners ' generally are-riot much
interested in subjects that directly
affect their interests.
Mr. McRae lectured'' on horses
and^dairy cows, devoting the first
part to horses, discussing. the^ different types of breeds.^and emphasizing the benefit of pure bred
animals and a clean pedigree.- < He
gave an example^ of a pedigree
that extended back for several generations, and pointed out that in
order to intelligently deduct any
correct idea of a pedigree, it is al>
solutely necessary'to trace the ancestors on both the Dam and Sire
side. The longer a breed is kept
to a distinct type, the more prepotent becomes the breed. Fpr,
instance, a Clyde, Coach or other
horse that is -bred for' generations
to a particular type, that/class becomes powerful to ^projiuce their
own kind- On the 'other hand, a
type that,ha8 been bred for speed
alone is likely to be deficient in
conformation and .type, but nevertheless", speedy/ JiL.. .
"During the afternoon, Mr. Mc-*^-
Rae gave a "splendid lecture on
conformation and quality at Black-,
wood's stables, using several horses'
to dembnstratehis statements, and
showing the  good   qualities' and
Dr. Boyce's camp south of town
was broken'into recently, and it is
thought within^ the last  few ^days.
Entrance had been effected
through'cutting the" wire ' screen
and drawing 'down the window.
* The same' party^or parties it. is
supposed, cut the telephone wires
communicating with the ' Central
here, as according to H.1 H.' Millie,
they were in perfect order on Saturday. ' Dr.* Boyce fras not yet discovered anything missing, but steps
will be taken to, discover, who the,
depredators are. ' 7-

Campbell Bros., launched their
new steam boat on Tuesday afternoon. The "Amelia C." as it will
be named, is -33' feet long by 8
feet wide, and will be propelled
by- a 10 h.p. steam engine. It was
constructed at Campbell Bros,
workshop, and will be used as a
private1 pleasure boat. < •>
The first practice, of the new.
voiilnteer fire brigade took place
on Tuesday night."" Most of the
members met at the fire hall about
7 o'clock, and at 7;30 the signal
whistle to turn out, was given. The
boys worked well together, and
within 1| minutes of the signal,
had run one hose reel, down by
the    Lakeview   hotel,   connected
bad points of "horses'and cattle.

proficiency-as a judge. D'Artagnan
the fine French Coach Stallion was
shown by Dr. Richards, and Mr.
McRae was quite enthusiastic and
interesting in explaining the origin
of that breed, and the --absolute
necessity of its combing strength,
quality, andi,style,\ to fulfil its place
as a general horse, to be"useful at
the, plow, as well as making a good

and a concise little talk on how to

It is a pity farmers did not show
their appreciation by being present,
as there were so many things said
and demonstrated that would
prove of benefit to all stock owners.
It may be that .more would have
attended if the. Farmers' .Institute
had taken the trouble to advertise
the matter well, as' there were a
number, even in town, who did
not know that the stock judging
was taking place.
A similar instance occurred dur-
ing'the winter, when Mr. Heather-
well of Victoria came here to
demonstrate on.pruning and general orchard work. The matter
was very inadequately advertised,
and the result was only a handful
turned up. It is to be hoped future
lecturers will have a large attendance.

Beer and the W.C.T.U.
Editor, Orchard City Record
Dear Sir,—The writers of the
W.C.T.U. notes in your issue of
March 18th, must be either extremely ignorant or must consider that
the public will swallow any wild
statements. They quote the experience of various doctors to the
effect that beer cause, insanity and
numerous diseases, and wind up
with the .astounding statement of
an Insurance Co. _ President to the
effect that beer-drinkers at a-touch
of cold or malaria, develop an acute
disease which kills them in ten
days I Now what are ^ the facts ?
Up to the introduction of tea and
coffee, beer was the universal drink
in England. Were the English of
the middle ages and of Elizabeth's
time a feeble or unhealthy folk ?
Germany is pre-eminently the beer
drinking country: is its death rate
higher than that of other countries ?
Are insurance rates higher on
Germans? Is the brain of the
average Gorman' less able than
that of other people ? How is it
that Germany is the country of all
others noted for deep thinking and
and profound philosophy ? Was
not Bismark,,who died at eighty-
three and was a great beer drinker,
one of the most virile men of His
time, both physicaly and mentally ?
I am sir,
' Yours etc.,

1 Worship of Snakes Led to Adoption of
the Mystical Symbol.
ii li:i- I41 .ii pointed out by Dr Bou-
.iii tiijii «_e worship of tbe serpeul
Ha* mi ii-iversul in antiquity that all
iiMiipli- i-aine to be knowu as "dra-
!oiJia   (serpent houses).    ~~
However that may be, serpents were
Mjpi iii iuauy of tbe temples of an-
1111 liir.\. notably In tbose of Apollo,
u hose .-.on, Aesculapius, is represented
in niiriViit statuary carrying u serpent
im wined round a staff or round bis arm.
I'hc serpent, indeed, came In time to
b(> the special mystical emblem or sym-
liol or ihe'Aesculapian art
i The serpents of the ancient"" Greek
temples were in all probability relics
of Mint primitive serpent worship
\\ liicli was at one time universal among
prehistoric peoples and has not died
uni iimong many savage races at the
preMMii day.
And "voodoo," or "obi," oerpent worship In still said to linger in the West
Indies among the descendants of
In Ilnitl especially, where negroes
were dumped down from Africa by the
old slnvp traders and were kept In reserve before belnn sold to masters in
the surrounding Islands, voodoo has
defied Itoinnn Catholic missionaries
and priesiR tor ages A French' naval
oflicer who visited the court of the
Haitian potentate Soulougue in 1H4S>
described a voodoo ceremony v. iiere
cu_nil),ilistie and other orgies were In
dulged In.       " .
it Is noticeable that the cock -_d
black goat which were solemnly eaten
on tliN occasion were both of them
sacred to Aesculapius Hence we may
infer thai the Apscuiapian cultus wai
originally au innocent form of voodoo
and at the same a primordial religiwH ..
The extreme antiquity of serpent"
worship seems, indeed, to be hinted
nt in (Jenesis, where the devil appears
in the guise of the snake god intent on
the ruin of man In the story of (he
brazen serpent healing qualities are
attrlbured to the image.—Lancet.
He Catches  Birds as Big as Larks  In
His Ma-nmoth Web.
Far up in the mountains of Ceylon
there is a spider that spins a web like
bright yellowish silk, the central net
of which is five ieet In diameter, whll<>
the supporting lines, or *uys, as thev
are called, measure sometimes ten o>°
.twelve feet, and. riding quickly in tbt>
early moiniug, you may dash right
Into it. the stout threads twining round
your face like a lace veil, while, as tbe
creature that has woven It takes up
his position In the middle, he generally
catches you right in the nose, and
though he seldom bites or stings, the
contact of his large body and long le;:-,
is any tiling but pleasant If you foi
get yourself aud try to catch him. bite
he will, and, though not venomous,
his jaws are as powerful as a bird's
beak, nnd you are not likely to.forget
the encounter.
The bo«es of these spiders are very
hnndsomoly decorated, being bright
gold or scarlet underneath, while th ■
upper part is covered with the mo«t
delicate slate colored fur. So strom,'
are the webs that birds the size of-
larks are frequently caught therein,
and even the small'but powerful scaly
lizard falls a victim. A-writer says
that he has of-ten sat and watched tlie
yellow monster — measuring, when
waiting for his prey, with his leg-
stretched out, fully six inches—striding
across the middle of the net and noted
the rapid manner in which he winds
his stout threads' round the unfonu
■late captive.
He usually throws the coils about
the head until (he wretched victim is
first blinded and then choked In
many unfrequented dark nooks of thN
jungle you come; across most perfect
skeletons ef small birds caught In
these terrible snares.
Violet Ink the Choapost.-
"Look   here,   you,   a   literary   man
can't afford the extravagance of violet
The literary man tore thoughtfully a
pendent piece of leather from the sole
of his shoe.
"I know," he admitted, "that violet
ink costs thrice as much as black
but black corrodes a pen .In a week,
whereas violet Is noncorroslve, a ml
with Its use it is possible to make one
pen last six or seven months. Tbe late
Russell Sage, who used violet ink exclusively in bis office, revealed this
great truth to me during my brief cler

dinner that they discussed an absent
maiden friend's had points with tho
usual grim and scathing glee. Having
thoroughly dissected her personal ap-,

her mental shortcomings.
"She is a very singular girl,^ spake
the one.      :
"Yes. indeed," responded ber companion. "But, then, tbat is not her
fault, for I never saw a girl so anxious

Mr. Burns and Baby Foods.
Mr. John 'Burns informed a deputation
in the House of Commons-recently that
the Local Government Board, under his
direction, had set up a separate food sub-
department to give special attention to the
quality and character of food. He had
specially relegated to the two skilled doctors at the head'of the sub-department the
question of the character, quality and constituents elements of babies' foods.
Seoen Brothers Play Seoen Brothers
Seven brothers named Williams, of
Haverfordwest, sons of a former police
superintendent, have issued a challenge to
any other seven brothers in the United
Kingdom to play a game of Rugby football
for £200 and the championship. Their
ages range from twenty-two to forty-three.
The football challenge was accepted by
the brothers Randall, of Llanelly, the
brothers Phillips, of Maesycwmmer; the
brothers Davies, of Llandilo; the brothers
Williams of Ammanford—all in South
Wales—the brothers Hall, of Gloucester,
and the brothers Marsh, of Newcastle-upon-
Ab the challenge of the Llanelly brothers
was the first received it has been accepted,
and the match will be played on the Saturday before Easter, probably at Carmarthen. If the Haverforwest boys win they
will challenge any other seven brothers in
the world.
Escapes from Prison Disguised as
Marathon Runner.
A convict, Edward Toye,.escaped from
a Glasgow prison by means of a very
clever ruse. How he actually got outside
the walls is a mystery, but as soon as free
he smartly divested himself of his prison
clothing and arranged his underwear to
give him the appearance, as he ran for-
freedom, of a Marathon runner out for an
early training spin.
On at least three -previous occasions
Toye had slipped through- the fingers of
the authorities. The last time he escaped
he slid down a pipe and got on board an
Atlantic liner. He reached New York in
safety, and was deported as an undesirable
alien. Landing at Glasgow on the return
voyage, he was recognised and_taken back
to prison. k       ""■"*"
The police are inclined * to believe that
he is now simply hiding in the city, and
anticipate his recapture on the first day he
Chinamen Cut Of. Their Pigtails '
and Join ttfe Church.
A ceremony of a unique character took
place in Liverpool a few days ago, when a
number of Chinamen were confirmed at
the Tuebrook Reformed" Church of England. • _,
The Chinese population in the Mersey
city is of large proportions, the numerous
laundries having resulted in the establishment of a prosperous and growing Chinese
quarter.      "* - , \
1, Some time ago the members of the
Buckingham road church thought that
there was special need for the provision of
special Sunday school classes on behalf of
the Celestials, and the little enterprise
proved so successful that now there are
seventy Chinese attendants. Several of'
these have been baptised, and on Sunday
no fewer - than sixteen went through the
confirmation service. All of them were
dressed neatly in well-cut English clothes,
whilst each one's jet black hair had been
carefully oiled. In order to show their
sincerity as Christains^ the Chinamen had
also cut off their pigtails, and their demeanour was earnest in the extreme.
~ Bishop"Eidridge, oflne" Reformed-Epis-
copal Church of England, addressed the
converts.      ►
Zulu Prince in Jail.
Dinizulu, one of the sons of Cetewayo,
and therefore a prince of the Zulu royal
line, has been sentenced after a prolonged
trial to four years' imprisonment and a fine
of $100 for harboring rebels. The expenses
of the Crown in connection with the trial
were approximately $10,000.
"Escaped" Nun.
The flight of Miss Madge Moult, a young
nun, from the Roman Catholic Convent at
East Bengholt, Suffolk, has created a sensation in that district. She claimed that
the monotony of convent life would have
driven her mad. For two years she had
been planning an escape, and had appealed to the Mother Prioress hoping that
arrangements could be made for her to
leave, but in vain. Early this month however, she contrived successfully to escape,
and managed to elude her pursuers who
attempted her capture, and is now staying
with friends'in one ofthe London suburbs.
Forbid Employees to Drink Liquor.
The Gas Light and Coke Qo.j Ltd., of
Westminster, have caused considerable
discussion by forbidding their employees
to enter any public.house in the immediate vicinity of the'office, except on office
The order-is meant to apply only* to the,
working hours of the staff, but it is bitterly
resented by the people affected, and it
is looked upon es an attempt to in.
terfere with the private affairs of the
company's employees.
Territorial Armij Opposed btj -,
Socialists.   .
* A resolution in favor of the Territorial
Army met with strong opposition at a
meeting in the Battersea Town Hall.
The Mayor of Battersea presided and
delived an address.
On marching to the hall headed by
their band, the 23rd Battalion of the
County of London Regiment met an opposition procession playing the Dead
March, and bearing a banner on which
was inscribed an indictment of the Government for adding to« the ranks of the
unemployed, by allowing military bands
to accept engagements while civilian
bands could not get work.
The addresses by Lord Lucas and Mr.
Shirley Benn were continually interrupted,
and it was only under a threat of expulsion that order was finally obtained,
Smyth Pigotfc to be Unfroched.
The Bishop of Bath and Wells has now
decided to take the final and extreme step
of deposing Pigott from Holy Orders.
The sentence of deposition will be pronounced by the bishop at a special service,
which will be held for that purpose at the
No such function has taken place in

One Year Without Saloons.
Hon. C. W. Trickett, assistant attorney-
general of Kansas, has recently made the
following statement with regard to the
closing of Saloons in Kansas City and the
effect thereof:—
This city is the metropolis of Kansas,
with a population of about 100,000. The
inhabitants are largely • wage-earners, and
represent every nationality. We are located on the border, only an invisible line
separating us from Kansas City, Missouri.
The city ranks fifth in the list of manufacturing cities of the United States.
One year ago there were 256 saloons in
this county, 200 gambling dens, and about
60 houses of social evil. To-day there is
not a saloon, no open gambling dens, nor
a disorderly house. It is the largest city
in the world without these dens of vice,
and as we hare now existed twelve months
without them, it affords a living example
of the fact that a large city can' grow and
prosper without such evils.
At the commencement of the contest a
large number of our people thought it
would ruin business and destroy our prosperity, but it has stimulated business in
all lines.
Our population'has increased at a greater rate than ever before.
The deposits of the banks. have gained
by one and a half million dollars.
The merc'ia-ts upon our streets have
had to employ additional clerks.
The attendance in our public schools
has increased largely, and we have had to
employ eighteen additional teachers. The
teachers inform us that this increase is
largely of boys and girls of from twelve to
sixteen years of age, who prior to the
closing of the saloons were compelled to
assist in supporting the family, by reason
of the father spending his wages for drink.
The charitable institutions report a reduction of more than two-thirds in the demand for aid. The juvenile court which
has the care of dependent children, had
but two applications in the past eight
months, while prior to the closing of the
joints from eight to eighty-eight children
required aid and assistance each month.
Prior to the closing of the joints we sent
from fifteen to twenty-five young men to
the reformatory every year. In the twelve
months since  closing  we   have  sent   but
two.' 7 •'"
The expenses for prosecuting criminals
have been reduced $25,000 per annum.
Expense for the police force has been reduced as much more.77
For the first time in twenty-five years
the court of common pleas of this country
opened its term the first Monday in May
without a criminal case
The city courts, created for the express
purpose of trying petty suits for the collection of rents and grocery bills, and formerly crowded with a black docket everyday,'
have now practically no business, for the
reason that people are paying their bills
instead of being sued for them.
.'. A year ago this city wets trying to devise
ways and means to spare the money to
build additions to our city jails. To-day
the doors of the jails swing idly upon their'
hinges and we have no use for those we
One year ago, not more than two-business men on the principal thorough-fares
of the city would have favored the closing
of saloons. To-day there are not two who
would favor opening them.
-Twice since the saldbns were closed we
have held a city-election, at which the
issue was presented to the people, and at
each election the people have endorsed
present conditions. , Every banker is loud
in praise of the present civic situation.
The city is clean, crime is at a minimum,
This city is now the experimental
station of the would. If Kansas City,
Kansas, can close its saloons and keep
them closed, and if closing produces prosperity, happiness and ''contentment, then
it is reasonable to assume that such' results will follow a like policy in other large
cities.—The Union Signal.

Express Train Runs Through
-    Waiting Room.-
, A C.P.R, express train from Boston arrived in Windsor street station last week

'"•Negro Burned at"Stake.
- A dreadful scene took place last, week
in Rockwell, Texas, the account of which
reads like^a story from the middle ages.
A negro named Anderson Ellis was tied
to an iron stake, and burned to death in
the presence of a thousand people.
The burning of the colored man was
preceded by the shooting and killing earlier
in the evening of Will Cldrk, also colored,
when he refused'to permit, the mob'to
search his premises for Ellis who was
supposed to be concealed there.    ■*
Mra. McKinney.. was attacked in ; her
yard early Friday morning by Ellis. The
alarm was quickly spread about and scores
of men began a search for the negro. Ellis
finally ..was surrounded at a farm house,
where he fired several shots at the posse
and was himself wounded twice.';/
Ellis was taken to the county jail but
shortly afterwards a 'mob gathered, overpowered the jailer and took the prisoner
to the public square. Here cord wood,
saturated with kerosene, was piled about
him and the torch applied.
He admitted his guilt.

What might have been a very
serious accident happened at the
Sawmill on Friday. W. S. Budden
in walking past a" line of shafting
had the bottom of his pants caught
by a projecting key. Fortunately
Budden was able to jump clear,
but left his pants whirling gaily
round the shaft. It certainly was a
narrow escape, and he is to be
congratulated upon having come
through without injury. <

Wednesday, I 7th March, by Rev*
H. P. Thorpe, James H. Middle-
ton and Miss M. Stuart, both of

the hearty congratulations of their
friends, a pleasant time was spent
in music and games.

consider the transference of their
grounds to the city. A general
meeting of this Association has
been called ,for Saturday afternoon.
In future "The Vernon Okanagan" will appear as an eight page
weekly, publishing - Wednesdays.
The management have considered
this step advisable as they are of the
opinion that an eight page weekly
gives the public much more up-to-
date reading than is possible with
a six page semi-weekly.

. Two carloads of settlers' effects
werejanded at Kelowna last Sunday.    _

Base Ball Teams Adoertise a Town.
,^The,experience of.the new century, an-
nals of professional  base ball, as  regards
the beneficial'effects of advertising a town
or small  city, on .account^ of its  having a
professional   base ball   club located in   its
midst, or of a town or city being connected
with a base'ball league or association, has
practically,taught a lesson.to business people of small cities and , towns, which  the
intelligent and, progressive  class of  hotel
and storekeepers  of a country  town have
not been slow of late to avail themselves,
for such  business men   have realized  the
advantage- above referred to. ~v
In small towns and villages .the scores of
games are usually published in the local
newspapers. This helps the places where
the.games are-played, and when the winner of the championship is known .he
impression'prevails'that the victory is due
to the enthusiasm and support given by
the "rooters" of the. place in which such
team is located.,
We know of many small country towns
which would never have been known or
heard of outside of their own immediate
vicinity, but* for' its base ball club arid
team. The fact is, if the business people
of a town, not previously benefited by
having a base ball club and a good enclosed
ground, were to get their best-men together
for organization purposes, they^ would soon
realize what an'advertising medium a well-
managed professional club is to the hotels,
boarding houses and stores. '
** 'In'the old "days,'Jwhen professional base
ball was  unknown, a general  impression
prevailed in the fraternity that the strongest nine that "could   be placed in   the field
was' a "picked nine," that is, a nine com-
posed  of players   noted -for their., special
excellence in playing their respective home,
positiohs: * Btit" the1 .ate' veteran,   Harry
Wright,' exposed 'the'fallacy of,this opinion
very-pjainly—as  we hrfd 'done,this*,years
bdfore—when, at Cincinnati' in the sixties,
he practically ' developed the great  possibilities of team-work inV nine as'the only
avenue to success in r pennant-grinning;-as
he-flidi-Btill more-i effectively in Boston  in
the  seventies;   and   nowia1' picked Inine
stands^nor  show   against  a  trained  nine
with its team-work  players in  position.—

Every Day With Us is Reception Day.
Stroll in and look around.
A very pleasant social evening
was spent at the home of Mr. John
Wolsley,; on Thursday, 18th inst.,
under the auspices of the Organized Adult Bible Class of Mount
View Methodist Church. Attended by members and a large number of their friends, as well as some
strangers who are always made
very welcome at any time. Games,
Music and speech-making were
quite in order, and generally getting acquainted. Miss Ela Farmer and Miss Lillian Bird contributed to the- musical programme,
while speech-making was indulged
in by Rev. J. H. Wright, pastor,
Mr. A. E. Clarke, teacher of the
class, M. Victor Dilworth, president, Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Fleming
and others.
Rutland is very much alive just
now, pruning and spraying being
quite the order and new tree planting, while many are staking out
for trees. Come out "where life is
worth living," breathe the pure air
and see the sights.
Mr. Yale is to be congratulated
on the excellent shape in which he
has gdt his lot for tree planting.
A great planner and worker. But
that's nothing, all Rutland people
are like that.
Mr. C H. Leathley, may also be
said to be a man of enterprise. He
does not believe in picking his
fruit off another man's tree, so he
makes straight to Rutland and
procures a bearing orchard for
himself. He's sensible. He knows
where to come.
Mr. Ed. Clarke was sensible also. He is to be congratulated on
the beautiful bench lo't acquired by
him this week.
We notice that our postmaster
and stoiekeeper, Mr. McDonald
has quite a stock of good looking pumps and piping on hand.
Say fellows the old habit of rope
and bucket looks bad, better^get a
good pump.
