Lectures by Sergeant-
Major School
At the meeting of the city coun-
, cil last Monday much and varied
business was gone into, the full
number.of aldermen being present.
The question of sidewalks was
'discussed and Mayor DeHart suggested-that .permanent cement
sidewalks should be placed down
Pendozi street,"as that street-was
bound to become "a principal street
-of the city.    In several other cases
,he suggested cement instead of the
usual board sidewalk and referred
the whole to the Board of Works.
Mr.-Raymer was present  again
this week, asking leave to remove
the  remainder of. his building to
the  opposite' side of the  road, so
as to-accommodate Messrs. Craw-
±n ford  & Co. during the rebuilding
.   of the, store.   JMr. Raymer's - plan
was to -cross the street and set the
- -     building on J. B. Knowles' lot between the Bank of Montreal and
- Post Office.
-- The"' Aldermen* thought    Mr.
- -   Raymer ought to be warned' that
' - in moving the building no damage
be done to' the sidewalk.     Mr.
- Raymer'replied that Messrs. Clark
and   Ferguson   would   have .the
....    .matter in hand  and would  make
"provision in that' direction.    "Aid.

' t'7   _ The'question of the transferring
- v-of the A.'ftc'X Grounds  was  next
• gone' into." "'Aid. Ball  pointed, put
that at the last meeting he'moved
that "no deed transferring the exhibition grounds would be" satis-
\  ,factory to the council, *__ch/did
' Wot give the City of Kelowna  the
right to dispose  of the property
'->  -should it be found .advisable to do
j J so." \This "jvas seconded  by Aid.
.; : Bailey and Carried.unanimously.
Now, according to  reports.- that
motion had been thrown aside and
as far as. he had understood  the
. city agreed to accept the grounds
on the condition  that they could
not sell unless the permission of
the _A. & T. Association was first
Mayor DeHart   explained   that
■    the City had the best ofthe bargain
and he thought that clause 8 in the
agreement    covered ' Aid.   Ball's

Aid. Ball-aid that under the
present agreement the city has
not the right to dispose of the
property, with a free hand; should
they desire t_. do so. The A. &T.
, could force the city to hold that
property, > a'rid although there
might be no reason to suppose
that'the present council .could not
come to an agreement with the A.
& T. still, in the, case bf another
council being appointed the situation might be of a different" nature.
Aid. Elliott said that if the concern was not,of a paying nature it
naturally followed that it would
be an advantage'both to" the city
and to the A. & T. to" sell - the
,    Mayor DeHart said that he  had
' no fear that a mutual  agreement
could be relied uponand  did not
expect the matter brought up  at
'that meeting.    He  had  been authorised to sign an agreement and'
that agreement had been   signed.
Aid. Cox thought no  agreement
'should be made or signed, until it
was seen and  agreed  to'by'the
, whole of the City Council.
Mayor • DeHart was of the
opinion' that the City's, interest
were-fully., guarded, and^ that no
fear was due as to the A. & T.
agreement to sell the property, if
approached by the City Council.
Aid. Ball did not like the situation. It was not a business-like
agreement, * and he desired, his
motion to be kept and recorded
on the minutes of the'last meeting.

The conversation ■ at this point
drifted to the reports of the various
Aid. Cox said that the scavenger
had had "great difficulty in doing
his work owing to his having to
carry the sanitary boxes over
hedges and fences.
People were putting in gardens,
and access to some of the houses
was being cut off.
The council agreed that all persons should provide suitable accommodation for the easy, access
of the scavenger, otherwise they
would -have to do their own
scavenging and be charged up
with scavenger's"!ees as well.
Mayor DeHart next told the
council that the second engineer
had left, and Mr. Sampson was at
present helping Mr. Russell.
Aid. Bailey remarked that the
lumber ha'd been ordered ior providing the bridges mentioned at|
last meeting with a suitable' safe
guard at the sides, but that at
present it was not delivered. -
Mayor DeHart drew attention to
the way the electric light' poles
were getting tramped and' spiked
and suggested that some ■ tread
spikes be put on the principal,
posts. "    *' f

The council, were next asked
what they suggested doing to keep
up'the county jail. The city supplied the fuel last year and they
ought' to do something this year as
they have been having free use of
the premises. Mayor DeHart suggested that free light and fuel7.be
given, besides an" agreement made
whereby the jail '"was kept in a
sanitary condition. , This was
agreed to by the councillors..
Aid. Cox suggested the planting
of trees down some of the streets'.
Mayor DeHart promptly replied
that he would give the-city 150
elm.trees if they would, undertake
the planting of same.
A plan was next laid before the
council asking for permission to
extend the Royal Hotel. This
matter was referred to the Building

The Methodist Church presented
rather an unusual appearance this
week, and the stranger might be
pardoned, if upon entering he had
some misgivings that he had strayed unaware into a museum! The
walls were hung with skins of wild
animals of Africa, and weapons
and trophies of war and chase
from all over the world. The reason for the display was the visit to

The Sergeant-Major occupied
the pulpit at the Methodist Church
on Sunday evening "last, and on
Monday and Tuesday * gave lectures on his experiences chiefly in
South Africa.
The Monday's lecture opened
with a short historical sketch of
the establishment by the, Boers of
the Orange Free State and the
Transvaal Republic, and much interesting light was thrown upon
the events which led up to the
famous Jamieson raid and the
struggles between the Bbers and
the British in South Africa. The
Boers he represented as a cruel
and quarrelsome people, who
never could agree'either* with 'the
natives or the British, or 7even
amongst themselves. The British
treatment of them however, although magnanimous and generous
as it always was, had been
characterize'd by gros? blundering
on the part of the leading officials.
This blundering, said the lecturer,
had precipitated a war which never
need have taken place. -   *
, .rHis thrilling accounts bf the
struggles' bf ' the* British7.'soldiers
with the terrible Zulus were listened1 to with wrapt attention by <the
large audience which filled the
church to the doors.
' Sergeant Schoof has a fund of
humorous anecdotes, with which
he frequently had his audience
convulsed 'with laughter.
A popular feature of the'evening,
especially with the boys, was the
selecting of a* 'dozen youngsters
whom the lecturer arrayed in various grotesque costumes, and put
through a course of drill on the
platform. .   "'
A really clever display of sword
exercise to music closed the first
evening's entertainment.
On Tuesday evening Sergeant
Schoof again had a large audience.
The second evening's lecture dealt
chiefly with Seargeant Schoof's
hunting experiences in Africa.
The, sheep of South Africa who
grow such enormous tails,-that
they have to carry them about in
The sergeant explaining that it
■was usual to throw awa. the
sheep's body weighing 50 lbs.,
and to keep and cook the tail
"which weighed about 72 lbs.,-it
being the only piece of meat on
the animal.
The lecturer delighted his
audience with his experience with
lions, snakes and diamonds, and
finished by putting a potato on
the head of one of his soldiers
who had bravely volunteered, and
slicing it in half without scalping
the owner of the head. The lectures were well worth listening to,
and of a very instructive nature.
Wednesday evening Sergeant-
Major Schoof lectured to an' appreciative audience at Mount View
Church. "     '
The meeting called by the above
association last Saturday was of a
more orderly nature, and was well
attended by the members of the
The Chair was taken by Mr. D.
W. Sutherland, president of the
Association. In his opening remarks he asked the members to be
as temperate as possible because
the last meeting seemed to have
been of little use owing to the disorder that prevailed.
Mr. Sutherland remarked that
other towns were working along
the same grounds, why shouldn't
we? A step in the wrong direction now would be very intricate
and he would ask the Secretary to
read the minutes of the last meeting, at the same time advising all
those present to listen to them intently. So many suggestions had
been made and resolutions carried
and then turned down, that it appeared to him to be at the present moment a general mix up.   -
The question of mortgages and
second mortgage was gone into by
Mr. Dilworth and-quite a few
agreed that it was useless to go
ahead in that direction, as people
do not come forward to lend on a
third mortgage.
. Mr. Stirling asked Mr. Dilworth
if he had ever thought of raising a
fresh mortgage for the whole
Mr. Dilworth replied that the
suggestion had not been put before them.
The minutes of the first annual
Tneeting^ were -then, read .with, a
view _o unravel the situation.. At
this* meeting it was decided to form
a new board of directors, to wait
on the City Council, to discuss the
terms under' which the property
could be transferred. 'Mr. Lawson
thought it was only right that whatever arrangements this committee
made with the City Council should
be ratified at a general meeting. .
Mr. Sutherland said that the' object of last meeting was to discuss
the"report of that Committee.
It was next proposed by Dr.
Boyce and seconded by/ Mr. W.
C. Cameron that:—provide the
city wish it they sell the continuation of Ellis street and keep the
Dr. Boyce remarked that before
selling anything it was best to get
to the value. What is the value
of the A. & T Grounds ? If the
Association transferred the land to
the City it would work out that
they were paying $4,600 for. the
privilege^ of using the grounds for
one weeirin eacrTyear
that the
one   at'
is that the  A. & T. will

Mr. Dilworth remarked
track was kept up by nc
the present time.
Mayor DeHart explained that" it
was the plan of the city council to
have the track put in  repair, -but1 s
refused to have a  binding .clause
in the agreement'to keep it in  re- .'

tunity  of letting  it  out to  some
Jockey or Turf Club, in  that .case     •
the persons to  whom, it  was  let
would  have to  keep' it in  good.
Mr. Stirling wished to know if'
football and cricket came under
the head of Horticulture and Agriculture as he understood these
games would be played on the
ground. He wondered if the city
would allow flower shows and "
other public functions to be held
in the grounds. -  .'
Mayor    DeHart   said   that   the
council could charge rent for such
shows,  but he "did  not   think it"   „
would be the case.
Mr. Stirling questioned,ifibe city    -
wanted a race track, whynotsell it ?

Mr. Sutherland   explained    the
situation and remarked that as the
proposed transforming of the A.

at the last meeting, the Association
was now free to  open  up  fresh
business in that direction.     They
had already a proposition before
them   from   Dr.   Boyce,   and   he
would like to ask that gentleman if
he wished his proposition voted

To the mere man, spring
cleaning is a time of unspeak
able discomfort. He has to
get his meals in a room from
which the carpets have been
removed, and his'favorite chair
is missing from its accustomed
place. Things are all upside
down, and his usually comfortable home is a place of confusion and disorder. His temper during this trying period
is apt -O be none too sweet.
But there comes a day when
the chaos is at an end, when
when things are back into their
places, and every room in the
house feels brighter and sweeter and cleaner. Then does
the grumbler realize that his
troubles have not been in vain,
and that matters would get into" a bad state indeed but for
the annual spring clean.
It is curious to note as one
goes around, this infallible sign
of the approach of fine "weather. Here is a veranda piled
high with furniture," and there
is a carpet suspended from a
cord across the lawn, and enthusiastic spring cleaners beating themselves red in the face.
Air this is good, and as it
should be, but there is another
kind of spring cleaning which
is more apt to be neglected.
When you are through with
your house, take a look at your
back yard ! There is far more
danger to health in the heaps
of filth and rubbish which are
allowed to accumulate in the
back yards and back alleys of
a city, than even in dusty carpets and curtains. The number of empty cans laying
around is amazing. We say
empty cans—but are they

enough, but that is not the

of the cans are thrown away

Editor Orchard City Record,
Dear Sir,
Kindly permit me to trespass on
your valuable space.
It seems to me that the agreement between the city council and
the Agricultural & Trades Association, in its present shape is not
entirely satisfactory to the ratepayers of the city of Kelowna.
I was not satisfied with Clause 8,
and when the Agricultural & Trades
Association turned the agreement
down 1 considered that the whole
question was re-opened and that
,1 was perfectly in order in moving
the resolution, standing in my
name, at the next meeting of the
city council. My object in moving
that resolution is this:. Clause 8
might easily result in a deadlock—
the city council and the Agricultural
& Trades Association might not
come to an agreement as to the
disposal of the property. They
might in the near future be able to
do so, but as the city and district
grow, the membership of the Agricultural & Trades Association
will change and the ruling body
might be composed almost entirely
of those'who are not ratepayers of
the city and whose interests are
not identical with theirs. .
My contention is therefore that
the ratepayers, who are paying for
the exhibition buildings and
grounds, should possess the right
to dispose of them in the event of
the property becoming burdensome.
My original proposition to the
city council was this: that the city
of Kelowna should have the right
to dispose of all or any part of the
property at any time it was thought
advisable to do so, on condition
that the city provides suitable accommodation for the Agricultural
& Trades Association to hold their
Fall Fairs.
In my opinion this makes it possible for the Agricultural & Trades
Association to carry out the main
object, for which it exists, namely,
agricultural and horticultural purposes, and it also clears the way
for the city to get rid of what might
become an undesirable bill of expense.
Thanking you, I am,
Yours truly,
J. BALL. .

A Tremendous Loss, $5,000.
Rev. R. H. Abraham contributes the
following forcible exhibition of the saloon
waste which is admittedly one of the lesser
evils growing but of the bar-room system.
The article is based upon a calculation
published in some United States journals,
but its figures are adapted to conditions as
they exist in the province of Ontario.
Every item of these interesting statistics is
well worthy of consideration. They are |
as follows:
It is estimated that every open bar has
an average of forty customers., In Ontario
this would mean about 120,000 drinkers as
patrons of our nearly 3,000 liquor-selling
places. It is a safe assumption that these
steady drinkers spend an average of One
Hundred Dollars per year for drink. This
amounts to a total of $12,000,000 a year.
That this is a low estimate will be seen
from the fact that the drink bill" of the
Dominion of Canada is $50,000,000 and
that Ontario's population is about forty
per cent, of the pupulation of the Dominion.
' If each of the 120,000 should stop drinking liquor and buy one pair of shoes costing $2.50 this would make a market for
$300,000 worth more of shoes.
If they should each buy a dress costing
$2,50, this would boom dress goods to the
extent of $300,000.
If each should yearly consume one more
barrel of flour than formerly, at $5 a bar-
re), $600,000 more would be spent foi flour.
One dollar more each year for useful literature would be $120,000, and $1.50 each
for underwear would be $180,000, and
$2.50 for a hat or bonnet each would add
$300,000 for headwear.
In the above calculation we have expended'only $15 for each of the 120,000
drinkers, whose demand for these useful
goods would create a supply without overproduction. They need the goods. This
leaves $5 each to be laid out for meat,
fuel, furniture, bedding and other home
comforts costing $10,200,000, all of which
is now spent in drink.
Now to spend $12,000,000 in producing
twenty of the leading. necessary comforts
of life to the amount of each produced
during the time covered by the last census.
"wiil~make~a~de_and -n_the farmer bjrthe-
manufacturer for about $6,000,000 worth
of raw material.
.The same money spent for liquor requires only one-fifth as much from the
farmer; here is a gain of $4,600,060 to the
farmer. This would give work to 24,000
more men yearly on farms, allowing each
man $200 per year wages.
If the $12,000,000 annually spent in liquor
were spent in food, fuel, furniture or
clothing it would give employment to
24,484 men, which is 22,704 more ihnn are
now employed in manufacturing the liquor.
Careful calculatton reveals -the fact that
every million dollars invested in industries
producing useful commodities gives employment to 2,080 persons, while the same
amount of money invested in liquor manufacturing sives employment to 148 persons.
It will also be seen that for every rnillion
dollars invested in other industries there is
returned to the pockets of the wage-earners about $554,773 while the sarne amount
invested in the liquor business, pays wages
to the extent of $75,000.
Thus it will be apparent that if the'capital invested in the liquor business were
otherwise directed it would use more- row
material, employ more persons and pay
more wages, and thus very materially advance the'welfare of the community, not
to mention the absence 'of crime, poverty,
I personal suffering find national'disgrace.—

Americans Want B.C. Lumber.
Quite  a  number  of  timber  deals  are
' going through  this  week and  others  of

Sandy Hook in Danger.
'Work will begin soon on one of the
greatest Jetties* ever csnstructed. Recent
surveys show that Sandy Hook is being

storm carrying tons of sand into the water.
The beach at places has reduced some
300 feet or more. Plans are completed
and the United States Government have
provided $30,000 to start the work. The
Jetties will be 3,600 feet in length, and
will number in all about nineteen. '

A .Shady Customer.
Too much caution cannot be exercised
in dealing with some people. Reports are
to hand that only_ a few weeks" ago, a man
named H. S. Percival, swindled an Englishman out of $1,000 by selling him a farm
which proved to be a myth. The deal
was put through in the old country, and
when the purchaser, together with his
family arrived at Rosthern, Sask., to -take
up his residence on the property, he found
he had been.done, the land .not being
Percival was .well know in Rosthern,
having had a business there once, and
and" mysteriously disappearing leaving
several hundreds in debt. He was seen
in this district a few years ago and summonses were issued but never served.
Having closed the mythical farm swindle
Percival left directly for the United States.
Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race.
The Oxford and Cambridge boat race
was-rowed on the Thames last Saturday;
and after a very severe struggle Oxford
beat Cambridge by three and a half lengths.
The time occupied was 19 minutes and
50 seconds. It was one of the best races
on record, and the two crews rowed side
by side as far as Barnes' bridge, but after
this the Oxford crew drew ahead. Much
excitement prevailed, the crowd on the
banks ' of the river cheering ' as the crews
neared the winning post. Oxford was from
start to finish a'strong favorite. This makes
the sixtysixth annual race rowed by two
'Varsity crews.

The Feast of the Passooer.
This great feast or in other words fast,
commenced on Monday last, and many
Jews throughout the country are keeping
up the old tradition. According to custom
the house has to be swept out from top
to bottom, so as to get rid of anjj leven
that may have accumulated there. . When
thia cleaning is over only the unleavened
breard is allowed to come near the establishment. This bread' consists of flour
and water and is called the passover cake.
The various synagogues in Winnipeg are
ready * for their annual celebration, and
about 9390 Jews are to meet in that city.
.The feast lasts for eight days. The first
and last two days being considered holy
days. The others being working days or
week days.

General Booth's BirlWdatj.
Next Saturday General Booth will reach
his 60th year and'celebrations will be general through tlie country. Salvationists in
all parts of the world are preparing for
their chief's 80th birthday. Special meetings will be held in all barracks, while at
Vancouver a special service will be held in
the citadel.
A glance at some of the main points in
his life may be of interest.
He was born April, 10th., 1829; converted at the age of fifteen, he became an
active worker among the Methodists. In
1855 he married Miss Humford (Mother
of the Salvation Army ); resigned from the
ministry and started work on his own lines
in 2861. He visited Switzerland, United
States, and Australia in 1881 soon afterwards coming to Canada.
No other living man has been privileged
to see such a crowning to his work, as this
octogenarian who has just finished a great
campaign in the largest cities of Scandinavia.
C.P.R. to Confer Again "With
Officials. • .
The conference held . after the C.P.R.
strike which took place some time_ago
and which was made good by the company agreeing to shorten the days work, is
again in the minds of the railway men.
Among the requirements at,present is, the
re-iristatement of the strikers to the positions they held last summer befoie the
strike. They will confer again with the
officials without doubt for shortening
the working hours.
Grant Hall the superintendent, who has
just returned from Montreal said, he would
continue the negotations as soon as matters
were in shape again.
~ Mr. Hall stated that during his trip east
lie had not conferred with any of the high
officials, and had no further particulars to
give out. Commencing last Friday the
company have inaugurated a nine and a
half hour day. and notices have been
posted in the shops . to that effect. The
notices state that the shops will be open
at 7 and closed at 5:30 with one hour, for
lunch. The new arrangement places all
men on full time and also allows Saturday
afternoons off.
Leth bridge Strike. " '
A telegram from District President
Sherman ordered the Lethbridge members
of the Limited Mineworks of America to
quit work until a satisfactory -agreement
could be arrived at. Previously the international executive advised the district to
accept .any agreement that was as much in
their favor as the expiring one.
President Sherman's qrder to the Lethbridge Miners means the shutting down of
the Gait and Royal Collenes and will affect about nine hundred men in the two
mines. This strike if it is of any duration
will eventually close down the B.C. Copper
Company's smelter, t Greenwood as the
coke reserves on hand are limited.
Solution of a Mystery.
In Winnipeg last fall a young man named
Haines mysteriously disappeared, and
nothing had been heard-of him since.
Last week the mystery was partially cleared up by the finding of Haines' body floating in the Red River. The police are investigating the matter but every indication
seems to point to suicide.     ,-
Immigration Keeps Officials Busy.
A report from North Portal, Sask., states
that the immigration movement into Canada for the month of March has been the
largest for many years. t The rush has
kept the customs immigration and quarantine officials very busy. Seven hundred
and twenty-six cars of efiects, including
3,500 horses and 600 cattle, arrived during
the-month. Four thousand seven hundred settlers arrived by train and nine
people were rejected. Twenty-eight
horses failed to pass the Mallein" test and
were sent back.
Americans Coming in Past
The Americans are beginning to get busy
and thia year an immense immigration from
the United States is expected, whatever
the numbers that come from Europe, it is
confidently predicted that the United States
will beat all records. The reports show
that 70.000 Americans will come in this
season taking up between seventy and seventy-five thousand homesteads. Trains are
running in duplicate on the Soo line running
into Moose Jaw, and the officers of the
Dominion Department of Immigration have
been unable to perform their duties and
extra men have been placed at North Portal
and Emerson.     \
Anglican Church Dedicated.
The beautiful church of St. Alban the
Martyr, situated at New Westminster, was
dedicated last Monday, the Lord Bishop
of the Diocese officiating. The edifice
presents a strictly Anglican appearance,
and is in a very central appearance. The
various friends of the church have spared
neither coin or labor to make it a worthy
structure for the high purpose for what it
is designed. The vicar is the Rev. D.
Dunlop, and the congregation consists of
some of the wealthiest citizens of Vancou-
. er and Now Westminster.

The Storm on The < Lake.
The gale that-swept across the
lake last Monday was one of the
worst experienced, by that merry
little feriy boa. the'."Clovelly."
Quite a gale wasblowing at the
time the little craft started, and a
journey would not have been attempted if" the skipper had not had
some important dispatches to deliver oyer the other side.
The passengers were very few,
. but included that 'wreckless' passenger Mr. Wilks, who was taken
owing perhaps to his knowledge
of the temperature °f the water and
also as a- safeguard to the boat.
The landing was not made at
Westbank owing to the heavy
weather that prevailed, the craft
having to turn round and make for
her own side of the lake. A safe
landing even in these comparatively quiet waters could only be made
at the Kelowna , wharfe. The
water round the Ferry wharfe
being too exposed.

' Settling Religious Difficulties
John Smith, a Presbytesjan, and Hannah
Jones; a Baptist, hesitated about marrying
because they feared that in^later life religious disputes might arise. Thus the years
r passed. John Smith grew bald, and Hannah Jones developed lines about her mouth
and eyes. It was a complete deadlock, the
world said. Then John was sent abroad for
a year by the firm which employed him.
He and Hannah corresponded regularly.
Towards the year's end, by a remarkable
coincidence, each received from the other a
letter, the two letters crossing in the mails.'
Hannah wrote: "Friend John,—The obstacles that stood in the "way* of our marriage
have at last been removed. This day I was
received in full membership in the Presbyterian Church." John's letter ran: "Dearest Hannah,—we have ro longer any ground
for delaying our union. This day I joined the
Baptist Church!"

Startling Street Explosion at Cardiff!
A remarkable accident illustrating the
danger connected with underground electric-
cable mains occurred at Cardiff. Whilst,
workmen were seeking a leak from the gas
mains in Cowbridge Road, a violent explosion occurred. It blew the heavy iron cover
of a cable manhole high into the air,and was
followed by report after report as nine manhole covers blew up extending along the
footway for half a mile, fortunately few
people were about, and the only casualties
were to a policeman and a workman who
received slight cuts from'fragments of the
iron covers. It is thought the gas was fired
by a passing pedestrian dropping a lighted

The poor children in London, England,
often go hungry, and it is quite a treat for
some of the small mites to go to a soup
kitchen. These institutions are invariably
run by some Society or Church, but now
the stage has taken up its share in the
good work. Miss Ellaline Terris one " of

Seoere Storms in Sashatohetoan
From Aberdeen, Sask., this week comes
the report that they are experiencing the
worst snow storm of the season. Anre too
broke out in a hardware store during the

readiness with which the citizens helped
to fight the enemy. Regina is buried in
in a heavy fall of wet snow, while at

For the Boys and Girls
of Kelowna and District
We are anxious to interest everyone in the columns of The Record,
and in this endeavor we must not forget the boys and girls. There is
often a good deal of literary talent lying dormant in the young people
and we want to give them a chance to show what they can do in this
direction. >     "        .
Wfc have therefore decided to offer two prizes each month for the
best essay written by any boy or girl under sixteen upon a subject
which we will announce each month. The first contest will be held
during the month of April, as follows:—
First Prize -      -      ■      ■        $2.00
Second Prize       -       -       -       - $1.00
There are hundreds of boy and girl readers of The Record on tha
prairies who would like to hear of the good times which the young
people of Kelowna have during the summer months, so the above
prizes will be awarded for the best imaginary letter from a boy or girl
in Kelowna district to a boy or girl on the prairie, on
"Summer Life in Kelowna.
From a Boy's (or Girl's) Point of View"
The essays should be sent in to the office not later than April 30th,
and the prize will be awarded upon receipt of the judge's decision.
The contestant must be under 16 years of age, and the composition
