City Council Meetings
Automobiles Objected to as a Public Nuisance   -   C. P. R.
Sign Papers Agreeing to Build Wharf    -    Estimates
of Board of Works and Fire and Water Committees.
A meeting of the City Council
was held on Monday last, the
Mayor, and aldermen Ball, Bailey,
and Elliott were present. Alderman Cox was present part of the
evening.
The minutes of the previous
meeting having been adopted, Mr.
Milligan approached the council
' ,with reference to buying the old
fire engine. Mayor DeHart after
asking him what price he anticipated paying, said the matter would
be brought up again during the
evening, and arrangements would
be made with the council.
Among the correspondence next
read, was a telegram from Mr. J. P.
Forde, informing the council that
the necessary papers for the starting
of the new wharf, had been signed
by the C P. R.
An amusing letter ,was also read
" from one of the ratepayers, asking
that   motor   cars  should''not   be
allowed to run,   say, for one day
- each week, so as to allow the farmers' wives and children to go into town  without being   molested
by the machines.   The letter was
duly filed. f
Mayor DeHart remarked that
now the C. P. R. had signed the
papers, agreeing to build a wharf
at the lower end of Water Street,
it was quite in order to read by-
' law No. 60 for a third time. This
was done together with, by-laws
Nos. 61 and 59. The three being
. passed for a third reading by the
council. It was decidcdjfcv^y^te' on
these on Monday, 17th day of May
next' between* the" hours of .9 a.m
and 7p.ni., andrthat G. H. Dunn be
the'returning officer.'' At the. same
time, it was decided to vote on the
question of putting the .lock on
one hour, so as to have an extra
hour of daylight, it being pointed
out by the Mayor that the matter
was receiving attention all over the
province. He had had informatiorr
that the idea was generally satisfactory in ,the eyes of the working
' man. ... ,    _
The directors appointed by the
A. & T. Association were present,
with reference to the transferrence
of their property to the city. The
following agreement was read as a
- result'of the conference :        '
That the city pay $3,500  cash
, and a lease' of property  for one
week in each year.   The city to repair buildings, fences, and track,
and have same, ready in time for
the show this year.   The city have
right to terminate lease, on payment to-ihe association of $ 175 per
-year for-eacrr year lease nasio run?
That the city purchase enough
land to make  a regular half-mile
track.
This agreement was satisfactory
to the A. fit T. trustees and committee, as well as the city council, and
it was decided to'put the matter in
legal form as soon as. possible.

, In looking over the estimates
made by Aid. Bailey, Aid.' Elliott
did not think enough was allowed
by him for the improvements of
Pendozi Street, and that that street
ought to have consideration before
Glen Avenue. Mayor DeHart
thought the estimates fair, and
great credit was due to Aid. Bailey.
They were less than those sub-

consideration, as nothing-had been

Street had received quite a lot of
attention. It was decided to let
the matter drop for the time being.
The question of selling the old
fire-engine to Mr. Milligan,was
next, brought up, and a very
amusing discussion ensued. It
was agreed not to sell it at present
as it might become 'a valuable
asset.t
A letter from the Vernon council advising that the old ladder

Aid. Elliott was asked to make
enquiries about the old extension
laddera'which belonged to the
city. They had been used for
painting by various painting firms,
and it was about time they „Were
collected together.
The advisability of putting in a
permanent pipe system for water,
was largely gone into by Aid. Ball,
the discussion bordering on the
plan of putting water down streets
where - it is required, under the
local improvements act.
Mayor DeHart had not had time
to look thoroughly into this'matter,
but had been advised that it was
only possible to put in a water
system under the frontage tax. He
would' give the matter his
consideration, and report his views,
as he did ' not think it right for
people who did not want water to
pay for'it. '  "• '      '
The attention of the council.was
drawn to the advisability of setting
up a cement watering trough, in
the city..
Aid. Elliott did not think it advisable, as it had been condemned
in so many places.
Aid. Bailey- thought il best to
combine a watering trough and
drinking fountain,' it finally being
left "with1 the fire & water committee to, make an estimate.'  r -
The rod on the bridge', in Pendozi Street was again discuss-d
and Aid,. Elliott promised to have
it seen to this week. '
A meeting of., theJ council was
held on Tuesday at five, o'clock.
The Mayor and Aldermen Ball,
Bailey and Elliott being present.
Mr. Lawson attended to ask that
certain expenses for fares, etc., incurred, in sending the 'school delegates to Vancouver, be placed on
the supplementary estimates. Mr.'
Lawson1 explained that this would
not be required if the school
building did not> require every
cent of the money subscribed for
building purposes. The amount
was one of about $ 1 10,' and he
'would not like to see the building
badly put up for the want of that
amount. In reply to a query Mr.
Lawson said the school building
would be made of brick throughout, and he would like the council
to see the plans and make advices
on the building.
Mayor DeHart remarked that he
thought the delegates expenses
might be put on the supplementary
estimates,   and   that   the   council

plans on Monday next.
The most important item on the
table was the discussing of the
legality of the A. & T. deal.
The city solicitor, Mr. Burne,
being present, each clause of the
agreement was taken piece by
piece anoVconsidercd. Some legal
hitch was due to appear, when it
was decided to save this by getting
the A. 6<T. to trade with D. W.
Crowley & Co. a certain portion of
the grounds, on the West side and
and a like -amount on the North
side. Aid. Bailey, who was responsible for the suggestion, remarked that it was better for the
A. & T. to fix up this matter before
the deal went through.
The following motion was made
by Aid. Ball, -seconded by Aid.
Elliott.
That the city do purchase from
the A. _ T. of the Okanagan Mission, that part of lots 44 a_d 45,
owned by the said association, for
the sum of $3,500 " ~"
. That the city as a" further consideration for the said land agree
to lease the land so purchased for
one week in each year^at a rental
of one dollar per year. In the
event of the city desiring to sell
said lands, at any-time during the
said lease, they shall have the right
to do so upon paying to the A. _ T.
Association, the sum of $ 172 for
each and every unexpired year of
the said lease. y •.
It was also agreed to give the
The Kelowna Aquatic Association was incorporated as a limited
company at Victoria on the 26th
of April with a capital of $10,000
divided into 400 shares of $25
each.
The notice which appears in
this week's B.C. Gazette expells
all reports that the Association
was lying dormant. A strenuous
effort will be made during the
next few weeks to get the required number of subscribers, it is
certain this will not be a difficult
task, the majority of the directors
being already large shareholders.
An advertisement of the Association appears on ' another page,
whereby the shares are offered
for sale, and it can hardly be out
of place to say that those who
anticipate making an investment
will be putting their money into
something great. The benefit the
association will be to the city is
enormous. Parents will be able to
send their children for a dip in the
lake, knowing that the Association
will have an attendant to look
after them, thereby obviating all
need of anxiety on the part of the
parent. The attendant will be a
good   swimmer,   and   will   in  all
possibility   conduct   a   course  o_twould agree to  a  proposition to

Jessons for those who are at pres'
ent unable to swim. The hire of
towels and costumes will obviate
the carrying of such articles
through' the streets, while a" well-
directed place for dressing will
be a boon to the city. Diving
boards and appliances will be
ready at hand and it is likely that
a special time will be made for the
convenience of ladies and youngt
children.
,'' It is likely to be one of the
finest investments in the city and
the advertisement for the sale of
shares ought not to be passed
without due'consideration.
Kelowna Public School.
A meeting of the A. & T. Association was' held in Raymer's Hall
last Saturday, a veiy small attendance being present.
In a general discussion before
the .minutes of the last meeting
were read the members intimated
that they were tired of these Saturday afternoon meetings and
wished for something to be done
that would put a stop to them.
The attendance of members had
been dwindling down, and now
they were only left with the directors'and and a few others. It
was decided to .hold a meeting of
Directors before the general meeting started in the hope that more
members would turn up during
the afternoon, but this was not the
case, and the general meeting was
proceeded with.
Mr. D. W. Sutherland took the
chair, asking the Secretary to read1"
the minutes which - were  adopted.
A letter from Mr. Raymer (who
was unavoidably absent) to Mr.
Pridham, was next read, in > which
Mr.- Raymer   set   forth;  that- h<
.
the stocks would have to be subscribed for by outsiders and that
would interfere with the selling of
the grounds, he thought it best to
submit to the members the issue
of stock, on conditions that • the
ground was not sold if die interest
due was not paid. He could not
make out why the original agree-,
ment had been turned down. -
Mr. G. Rose replied  that  the  8
clause agreement was turned down
because one of the council did not
agree to clause 8.  It was  thought
very feasable at the  time and' he
did not see why it could  not be
settled that way.    Clause eight was •
the onlypne that the 'council ob-'
jected to and he thought that clause ••
might be altered to meet the isitu- /
ation.   He suggested that the As-;
sociation should sell  the  grounds •,
for $3,500 and in return  to   have,
the use  of* the  grounds  for; one -r„

ty would become valuable in time,
morel especially as the CP.R. were
about to/bring their new wharf and
warehouses into that locality.
Mayor DeHart remarked that
the proposition to issue stock
would soon put the A. & T. out of
business all together. He thought
it would be a difficult matter to
deal with a lot of outside shareholders if they desired to sell,
while if they were dealing with
the council, no doubt some amicable terms and agreements
could be made.
Mr. Dilworth remarked that the
parties purchasing the shares
would expect about 8  per  cent.
and in the—event of that interest
not forthcoming, the possibilities
were the place* would be sold by
auction. The present mortgage
was one of $1,100 and the interest
was 5 per cent, if it w<*8 impossible
to pay off the interest on • that
mortgage how could the Association hope to pay off an interest of
8 per cent.
Mr. Speers in the course fof an
animated speech declared that in
his opiirfon it was best to raise the
money to pay off the indebtedness
of the Association by subscription.
He explained that the park was
not a suitable place for a show
building, in his opinion the city
ought to make the park as presentable as possible and not to court
the idea of having an "ngly building on its ground. He advocated
the present spot because it was
away from the hotels and was in a
quiet neighborhood and he would
like to see every member give
five or ten dollars as a subscription
to a fund to clear the A. & T.
grounds of all debt.
Mr. Sutherland thought it best
to take one subject and deal with
it first, before putting forward any
more suggestions, Referring to Mr.
Raymer's letter and Mr. Pridham's
endorsement of the arrangements
contained therein, neither of. the
trustees would agree to the le_se
in the park, in that cade it Was
useless to go further ahead in that
direction. He did not kriow how
the issuing of stock Would pan out,
!<r. „
> _
look after it.
Mayor DeHart thought the" best lr,
plan would be for say two^of 'thej /7;'
trustees and two of tfie directors^ <,
be given power to make final 'ar-7'
rangements with'the council," arid^"-,

There is a strong feeling of
dissatisfaction abroad at present amongst the working men
of the town owing to the fact
that the, to them, somewhat
inconvenient hours of the Post
Office make it difficult for them
to obtain their mail. They do
not rent boxes, and do not see
why they should be put to that
expense, and the hours during
which the Office is open for
general delivery do not fit in
very well with their ordinary
working hours.
The Post Office opens at 8
a.m. when the working man is
at work, and closes punctually
at 12; during the dinner hour,
therefore, he has no opportunity
of getting his mail. In the
evening general delivery business stops at 6, or very soon
after, and the chances are that
the wicket is closed before he
can reach the office after quitting his work.
Our representative had a
talk with Mr. Bailey on the
question and found him quite
.willing to do all _n his power to
set matters right. It was the
first he had heard about the
difficulty. We venture to think
that to approach ' our genial
postmaster direct and explain
matters to him would be a
better and quicker solution of
the problem than " writing to
Ottawa," or "raising Cain"
through the' press, as some are
desirous of doing.

Ought  not this  great fruit
district to have some institution
whereby the care and management of fruit trees can  be  explained?    Added   to  this  institution,    a    packing    school
should  be  run.     There   are
many people in  the  town  as
well  as  in  the country  who
would cherish the the idea of a
packing school, and  it ought
 __not to be _^difncuit_proposition-
to hold such a school, say twice
a week  during   the   packing
season.    The careful handling
of fruit  and  the packing   of
same is  the great   point   on
which the market value of the
fruit turns.   Kelowna has long
been famous for its well packed   boxes,   its    unblemished
' specimens   of fruit, but with
the increasing orchard  space,
and the increase of the market
' , a time will come when  all the

Death of Sir Donald Currie
Tee death is announced of Sir Donald
Currie, head of the firm of Donald Currie,
& Company', and the Union Castle Line.
During the part of his life, Sir Donald has
given away large sums for public purposes
his benefactions including £100,000 to'
University College, London, £25,000 toEd-
inborough University .and £20,000 to
Queen College, Belfast. He was 84 years
ofage, and it is said was the son of a barber in very low circumstances,
No Belief in Cramming. '
Mr. A. R. Picker, of Burnley, in the
course of a speech made at the Teacher's
Conference at Morecambe.made a slashing
attack on the system of examination, and
"cramming" for school children. He
wished the bright children to develop' naturally, and did not like the maxim:
Ram'it in, Jam it in,
Children's heads are hollow;
Slam it in, Cram it in,
Still there's more to follow;
Rap it in, Tap it in,
, , What are teachers paid for;
- Clap it in, Slap it in,
What are children made for.
Some schools, Mr. Pickers knew had a
system of special classes, which were held
during the vacation, and before and after
school hours, in order to cram for some
exam or other-all for .the honor of the
school, and the glorification of the teacher.
Operation has Sad Sequel.
An inquest was held at the London
Hospital on the body of Mr. Angus B.Wilson,
whose death occurred under very remarkable circumstances. Mr. Wilson was
attending,a female patient who was suffering from laudanum poisoning, and in her
struggles ishe bit his. thumb. Blood
poisoning set in and death occurred within
a week,of the injury.

A novel plan whereby children can be
adopted on trial, has been hit on by the
Lambeth guardians. And some few child-
have already been sent to prospective
fathers and mothers "on approval". The
new homes are inspected by the adoptions
committee, before the child is sent, and by
arrangement the would be parents are
bound to bring up as members of the
family, the children they adopt. At Lambeth o tub - committee of the school
committee with three lady members, has
recently been,formed to take in hand the
question of adoption of children. The new
system is one of the first practical results
of ita working. ' '

Dr. Tanner, preaching a health campaign
at Los Angeles, recommends that the teeth
of all dairy cows should be cleaned twice
daily, and ( says that this law should be
compulsory, as he is convinced that bovine
teeth harbour many germs that frequent
the milk supplied to children. But then,
as the "British Medical Journal,'' commenting on this recommendation, asks—why
stop at dental toilet>Why not employ gargles
as well as tooth brushes to the cows?

News of the Valley.
Farmers throughout the Canadian west are becoming scared at
the prevailing cold weather.
Seeding has had a set backhand
farmers are now wondering if
seeding will be too late to insure
a good crop. . Optimistic old
timers say that the best crops ever
reaped went in late, but the majority of farmers and grain men
know that wheat that is not seeded
by the I st of May in Manitoba and
the 7th of May in Saskatchewan is
likely to prove a short crop.
Last Monday the Penticton football boys had a wind-up meeting
ovet A. H. Wade's store. We
wish it was a case of wind up, and
the figures work.
Keremeos have re-organized
their gun club and have named a
committee to arrange for a > shoot
on the 24th of May.
Several Kelowna friends of Mr.
and Mrs. Hassell spent a most enjoyable musical evening last Saturday at the Bellevue. The arrangements were made through • the
new telephone, which has been
lately installed. A fast trip was
made in Campbell's boat "Amelia

for the occasion.
The peach and cherry trees are
now in full bloom, and if the
blossoms show the magnitude of
the crop there will be a bumper
one this year.

Money to Loan.
Women w;ho decorate themselves   with
little frills and furbelows and feathers, and
bangles and   bracelets and   bows are  not
usually ofa simple and unassumingcharacter.
It will generally be   found that they are
aspiring and ambitious, and that  they are,
above   all  things,   extremely   desirious of
"making an impression" wherever they go.
Others again,; who(though they can well
afford to do otherwise) invariably invest in
cheap garments of shoddy material, will be
found lacking in all sense of the artistic or
the   beautiful.     Their   practical   side: is
developed at  the expense of the aesthetic.
Eccentric women   are fond of adopting
an   unusual style of  dress—mannish  hat3,
collars and coats, or  extremely floppy and
limp garments—according to the direction
in which their eccentricity manifests itself.—

Beer Kills Quicker Than Other Liquor.
Dr. S. H. Burgeon, a practitioner thirty-
five years, twenty-eight. in Toledo, says:
"I think beer kills quicker than other liquors. My attention was first called to its
insidious effects when I began examining
for life insurance. I passed as usually
good risks five Germans—young business
men—who seemed in the best of. health,
and to have superb constitutions. In a.
few years 1 was amazed to see the whole
five drop off, one after another, with what
ought to have been mild and easily curable diseases. On comparing m.v experience with that of other physicians, I found
all were having similar luck with confirmed beer drinkers, and my practice since
has heaped confirmation on  confirmation.
The first organ to be attacked is the
kidneys, the liver soon sympathizes, dropsy or Bright's disease, both certain to end
fatally. And physicians who care to take
the time will tell you that among the
dreadful results of beer drinking are lockjaw and erysipelas, and that the beer
drinker seems incapable of recovering
from mild disorders and injuries not
usually regarded of a grave character.
Pneumonia, pleurisy, fevers, etc., seem to
have a first mortgage on him, which they
foreclose remorselessly at an early -opportunity.        ;
Beer Worse Than Whiskey.
"The beer drinker is much worse off
than the whiskey drinker, who seems to
have more elasticity and reserve power.
He will even have delirium tremens, but
after the first fit is gone you will some,
times find good material to work' upon.
Good management may bring him around
alright. But when a beer drinker gets into trouble it seems almost as if you have
to recreate the man before you can do
anything for him. I have talked this for
years, and have had abundance of living
and dead instances around me to support
my opinions."
A Crop of Lunatics. •'.'■■
Dr. A. McFarland says : "That the iniquities of the fathers are visited upon by
the children, that the fathers have eaten
sour grapes and the children's..teeth are
set on edge, are'truths that no Scripture
is needed to teach. In other words, hie
who sins through physical excess does not
do half the harm to himself that he does
to the inheritors of his blood. The penalty must be paid as sure as there is seed
time and harvest.
It is your stout old hero, who goes to
bed:every night with liquor enough,under
his belt to fuddle' the brains of a'half
dozen ordinary men, and yet lives out his
three-score and ten, that will be found at
the head of the stock that pours into the
world, generation after generation, such; a
crop of luuatics, epileptics, eccentrics and
inebriates as we often see. The impunity
with which one so constituted will violate
all physical law gets its set-off in a suc-
ceding generation, when the great harvest
begins. 	
Dr. Si H. Burgen: "I have told you the
frozen truth—cold, calm, scientific fact,
such as the profession everywhere recognizes as absolute truths. 1 do not regard beer
drinking as safe for anyone. It is a
dangerous, aggressive evil that no man can
tamper .with any safety to himself. There
is only one safe course, and that is to let
it alone entirely."
Beer Drinking Shortens Life.
• Dr. S. S. Lungren, a leading homeopathic
physician -and surgeon, has practiced' in
Toledo twenty-five years. He says: It is
difficult to find any part of the confirmed
beer drinker's machinery that is doing its
work as it should. This is why their life

or accident gives them a little blow,
drinking shortens life. This' is not mere
opinion; it is a well-settled, recognized
fact. Physicians and insurance companies
accept this as unqestionably as any other
undisputed Tact of science. The great
English physicians decide thatthe heart's
action is increased 13 per cent.. in its
efforts to throw off alcohol introduced into '
the -circulation. The result is easily figured.,
'out. The natural pulse-beat is, say, 76 per'
minute. If we multiply this by 60 minutes
in an hour, and 24 hours in a day, and add
13 per cent., we find that the heart has
been compelled to do an extra work during that time in shrowing off the burden of
a few drinks (4.8 ounces of alcohol), equal
to 15.5 tons lifted one foot high."
Life Insurance Companies,
i -,.,■'
The life insurance companies make a
business of estimating'men's lives,' and can
only make money by making correct
estimates of whatever influences life. 'Here
is a table they use in calculating how long,
a normal, healthy man will probably live
after a given age: .   f   ,
Age. Expectancy.
20 years . ....41,5 years.
30 years 34.4 years.
40 years 28.3 years.
50 years 20.2 years.
'   '60 years v 13.8 years.
1  65 years '..'. II     years.
" Now they • expect a man otherwise
healthy, who is addicted to beer, will have
his life shortened from 40 to 60 per cent.
For instance, if he is 20 years old and does
not drink beer, he may reasonably expect''
to reach the age of 61. If he is a beer
drinker he will probably not live to be over
40 or 45,- nnd so on." ' ,

Large Works for Kamloops.
The tax rate at Kamloops has been fixed
at 18 mills. Many big works are being
provided for in, the city, among them
being a large city hall, costing in the
neighborhood of $30,000. An adequate
park system is being arranged, and the
water and light plant is to be enlarged
and improved. It is evident that the civic
authorities are determined v to keep pace
with the progress and 'expansion that is so
prevalent in the entire district.
Conoict- as Miners.
Preparations are being made to mine
coal by convict labor in the yards of the
penitentiary at Edmonton. A seam has
been discovered on the river bank nearby
and a shaft has been run back and a shaft
will be sunk in the penitentiary yard. The
warden believes there is enough coal there
to supply the jail for years to come.
Burglars Carry off Safe.
During one of the wind storms that
have been striking Calgary of late, daring
burglars carried off a safe belonging to
L. T. J. Turcotte of Sunnyside, a suburb
north of the cjty. The safe which contained about $200 was found the following
morning about a mile away, having been
battered and broken into by the use of
crowbars and other implements. A horse
that was in the stable at the rear of the
premises was hitched on the delivery rig,
and by these means the safe was hauled
away. The horse was afterwards fetched
back and unhitched. So far there is no
clue as to who the thieves were.

Chinamen Likee Horse Shoes.
A Chinamen has been arrested in Vancouver as being suspected of hatching a
plot for the wholesale theft and shipment
of horse shoes to China. The police had
received word that these thefts were going
and traced it to two Chinamen, whom it is
alleged were placing them in barrels ready
for shipment. Old horse shoef it is said
obtain a ready market in the Orient, and
the thieves-would have been richly repaid for their thefts had not the police
been advised of it.
Mat) Day in.'Net© Westminster.
Every child in the city of New Westminster will remember the May Day
celebrations this year. The children attended for roll call in the morning, after
which they were, immediately given a
holiday. The children did not commence
till one o'clock, 'when the royaL parade
was formed at the Carnegie Library Square
proceeding through the business part of
the city to Queen's Park.' The Crowning
of the May Queen, and the dance around
the May Pole, together with a long list of
races and other sports were' held on the
arrival bf the procession at the park. A
special feature of the afternoon y/at the
boys parade drill. A grand ball was given
held in the' evening at the exhibition buildings, the children holding the floor until
ten o'clock.,, Special cars were run on the
Columbia, Electric Railway' between the
Gty and Vancouver, after the ball.
Grand Trunk Gets Steamship

The Grand Trunk Railway and White
Star and Dominion Lines have formed a
compact which will enables them, to run
the railway on the same lines as the C. P.

with the boats. , It is the intention to have
an independent port at Maisoneuve at the
east end,of the city of Montreal.

An English mining prospector, named
Courtney, has arrived at Los Angeles, from
San Bernadino, California, after a fifteen
year* sojourn in the Arizona desert, hunt
ing for gold. - His first query was, "How's
Her Majesty Queen  Victoria," and was
most'astonished when he heard she dead.
Courtney has learned for the 'first time of
Spanish-American    and    Russo-Japanese
wars,and when told that Great Britain had
gone through a successful war with South
Africa, he threw up his hat and  raised a
hearty cheer.    A passing  motor car so
astonished him that, he flew into an open
doorway in alarm, and thinks  he  is  only
being fooled when the* is told about the
marvels of wireless telegraphy,

„   , - Does Farming Pag?
/ A farm of 450 acres has just- been sold
for the sum of $21,000. This farm is situated at Samfordi about 20' miles from
Winnipeg, and belonged to Alex. McCurdy.
Mr. McCurdy started fanning sixteen years
_go, with a capital of $750, and has generally developed'his"holdings until the
above mentioned price was offered him.
The proceeds of the of the sale of implements and chattels amount to $5,000, all of
which have accumulated through legitimate farming. K He will take up a residence
in Winnipeg, and vjill in all possibility
visit British Columbia with the idea of purchasing land there.' \

New Bank for Calgary.   ,
Plans of the new Bank of Montreal
building at Calgary show a handsome
Greek structure, of three storeys, built of
brick,' with, a frontage" of 48 feet and a
depth of 55 feet. The framework will be
made entirely of steel. The building will
be one of the handsomest in the city.
A       Accident to Express.
A serious accident occured last Thursday on the Quebec, Montreal, and Southern
Railway at Iberville Junction, 31 miles
south of Montreal. The Rutland ' Express
from New York to Montreal, 15 minutes
late, was coming along at a good rate, and
ran into an open switch smashing into a
round house, where locomotives and a
box car were standing. One locomotive
was a total wreck, and the box car was
splintered into small pieces. The fire,
man of the wrecked locomotive
had a leg broken and another train
man was badly scalded. Another had his
head badly gashed, but no fatal accident
is recorded.
Lighting and Snow.
A violent storm is reported at Chatham,
Ont. The storm was accompanied by
brilliant flashes of lightning doing much
damage. The tower of the Collegiate Institute was struck and gutted by fire,
The storm is without precedent in' this
part of the country at this time of the
year.
Edmonton's Phones.
It is reported that Edmonton will hand
over its phone system to the province.
This locality is the only one that is not
under the control of the provincial government. The price of the phones is less
than in Calgary under government ad-
minstration and yet brings in a good
revenue to the city. As the rural lines
are improfitable, it is feared the transfer
will bring in less revenue to the city as
well as increased rates.
Goal Shortage nt Calgary. '
Owing to the various strikes that have
been going on lately, the coal dealers in
Calgary are at loggerheads to know what
to do for supplies, .Reports go that a man
called up a prominent coal dealer and 'explained that he had a steam plow ready
for work, and wanted the coal in order to
start operations. The reply was that there
was no steam coal available at present,
but the aspect looked better in the future.
A telegram to E. A. Auckland, Deputy
Minister of Labor, states that the department is willing to act as intermediary between the miners and operators, and if
requested will send officers for that
purpose.
Large Fire in Montreal.
A large fire broke out 'in the premises of
Messrs. Farrell, Beleisle & Co., situate in
Notre Dame Street-west, Montreal. The
warehouse was stocked with millinery all
ready for export, and the blaze • was tremendous. It is estimated that $10,000
worth of damage waa done.
Work for Lazy Man,
John Reison the laziest individual with
whom the Vancouver magistrates \ have
ever had to deal was sentenced to serve
six months on a chain gang. Reison was
arrested for vagrancy, and the only possible
thing to do was to send him up for a long
term. When asked if he would like to
be sentenced for the rest of his life his
reply was, "Yes, your Worship."

Where Cheques Are Signed By
Thumb-Prints.
Out in Cheyenne, Wyoming, there is a
bank which has depositors of so many
nationalities that it has found necessary to
require identification by some means other
than a written signature. The bank
officials have therefore, made it a rule
that foreign depositors must sjgn their
cheques with the imprint of their right
thumb, in addition to their written signatures
When a would-be depositor asks to open
an account with that bank he places on file
his written signature, and at the same time
the impress of his thumb is filed. Afterwards, when a cheque from this man is
received at the 'bank, it must have the
thumb-print attached as well as the written
signature, and this thumb-print must, of
course, correspond with .that'on file in the
bank's records. — From the "Strand
Magazine."     '

The disappearance of a youth
named Herbert McDonald, caused
some little consternation in town
last week. Chief Hidson was instructed by the lad's father, Mr. D.
E. McDonald, to save no expense
in trying to trace his son. The
chief consequently sent' telegrams
and descriptions to Vancouver,
Kamloops, Sicamous and Calgary,
with the result that the boy was
eventually found at the last named
city. He was recognized as having left the train at Sicamous
Junction, but it was not known
whether he proceeded east or
west from that point. Great credit
is due to the Calgary police who
were ready for his arrival at about
1:30 in the morning, and only had
the\description Chief Hidson had
telegraphed to aid them in the
recovery. They boy will be sent
home at once, and will be received with great joy by his anxious
parents.

The Soil For Daffodils.
''Toe.daffodil grow,s best and gives the
finest flowers in soil which is naturally rich
and moist,"says a writer in "The Gardener,"
"but it dislikes a waterlogged soil, therefore
let the ground be well dug. Soil which
was manured some time ago and since
cropped will, after digging, be in the 'best
condition. 'It is not advisable to add animal
manure, because such will cause the bulbs
to rot. But if it can be got at a reasonable
price, then bone meal added to the soil
below the bulbs may be used. The
quantity to be applied is I Joz. to the square
yard. The daffodil, like other bulbs, likes
phosphates, but objects to ammonia in the
soil. If the soil > be very sandy; and dry, a
layer of stable manure' may be placed 10
or 12 inches below the surface. On dry
sandy soils sulphate of potash may be
sprinkled over the ground ih December at
the rate of f oz. to the square yard. It holds
moisture in the soil and gives a deeper
colouring in the flowers."

quantity is to be used on Mr.
Whelan _ ranch.
Natural soda water 'is reported
to have been found in the Black
Mountain district. A sample is on
the way to a well known physician
in New Westminster, who will report on the purity It contains a
large quantity of iron, and when
bottled the cork "has to be tied
down, to prevent the gas blowing
it out. We now strongly advise
the cultvation of lemons on the
Belle Vue Farm.
Wild geese are prevalent _n the
beach just now in some parts, but
Dr. Boyce cannot find many in his
field near the Hospital. He has
consequently invested in some
tame geese to supply this deficiency, and it is to be hoped that
the difference will be "known by
anyone who carries a gun.  *

At a meeting of the sports committee it was decided to run the
