PRETTY MARRIAGE
AT St. MICHAELS.
A meeting of the city council
was held last Wednesday, a full
attendance of the council being
present, with acting Mayor Bailey
in the chair.
The tender from C. G. Clement
for the building of a-concrete
power house was read, the price
mentioned was $2,400, if the 'city
supply the sand and gravel-and
'$3,300 if the contractor furnished
all the material. After some discussion it was decided to accept
the tender for a concrete power
house as set forth by C G. Clement
said work,, to be commenced at
once and completed by August
6th, 1909. . '■'.''
v "By-law No. 62 for raising a rate
of taxation was reconsidered and
finally passed.
By-law No. 63, being an agreement to sign the necessary papers
to allow theCP.fi. to lay their
tracks across Water Street, * was
read a first and second time.
A letter was also read from- the
Deputy Commissioner of Lands
re the desire of the Corporation of
Kelowna to acquire the right to
the foreshore of the Okanagan
Lake fronting the townsite. It was
decided to leave the discussion of
this matter until the general meeting on Monday, 5th of July,' the
council adjourning with a resolution to meet again on that date.
The following accounts were
then read- and referred to the
finance commitee to be paid if
found correct:

An interesting event took place
yesterday at St. Michaels and All
Angels Church, when Miss Lena
Rose Brightman was united in
marriage to Mr. Frank G. Budden,
the Rev. T. Greene officiating.
The bride, who wore an empire
gown of French silk over taffeta,
with bridal veil and- wreath of
orange blossoms, carried a boquet
of bridal roses. She was attended
by Mrs. F. E. Small as matron of
honor, Miss ''Marguerite,. Budden,
sister of the bridegroom, and Miss
Birdie Small, niece of, the bridegroom,' as flower girls. They wore
empire dresses of pale blue ' silk
mull, trimmed with white lace and
ribbons. After the ceremony the
l\appy pair left for southern points
by the Okanagan where they will
spend a few weeks, afterwards returning to take up their abode in
Kelowna.

; Some little question arose  as - to
the various articles that had ~ been
bought'lately; without, the '.written
order of the city clerk. \ No less
than 91 pails had been booked up
to   the council   since'the power
house fire, and the work of sorting
out the various  departments that
had  these articles,  and  charging
their accounts was very  hard.   It
was agreed to pass the following
motion and to have it inserted  in
the newspapers-for three issues.
"Merchants   are 'hereby . notified
that no bills will  be paid  by the
city council  unless an  order can
be produced signed by the 'city
clerk,  excepting that   in , case  of
emergency and in the absence  of
the city clerk, a temporary order,
signed   by   the  chairman  of the
finance committee-will be honored.
Aid. Elliott explained that so far
two tons of hay had been taken off
the sides of the - streets, and  possibly there was one and a half ton
left yet.   -
The power house tender next
received attention. So far it was
nohcedrthat no headway~Had been
made with the building since the

discussion ensued as to placing a

to be of an. approved colour.
A tender from' G. F. Budden
offered to do the repairs to the
roof and to give it two coats, and
the body three coats, for $230 best
oil and white lead to be used.
A tender was also receiyed . for
painting the _re hall, but as this
matter had been already settled,
the tender was not read..
Some question arose as to the
amount of money left to be expended-on the Exhibition Grounds,
but the Mayor explained that the
building Had to be painted in
order to carry out the contract
with the A. &'T. It was decided
however, to leave the matter of
awarding the tender * until next
meeting.' .■ ^-
Aid. Rowcliffe next made- a
statement that $31 had been saved
by having the foundations put in
by the cubic foot,' instead, of by
tender for the 'whole.' -" ■
the contractor was paid so much
extra if he finished the work be
fore the specified date, and that
so much was paid by the contractor if the work was not finished
by that date. The Mayor explained that it was general in Seattle to
do it that way. After a general
discussion it was decided to ask
the contractor to sign the contract
and agreements'and that he pay a
penalty of $ 10 a day for every day
over the sixth day of August, 1909,
for completion of contract.
Aids. Ball and Cox did not like
the plan, and did not think it fair
to put such a clause in the agreement after the. contract was sent
in. They thought it best to consult Mr. Clement on the subject,
as their might be some trouble
over the material,
Aid. Elliott thought that it was
the only business like way to make
the contract, and that the council
had no right to make a contract
without some ^stipulation of that
kind. The council | had been
caught once he remarked, and he
did not like to^see them caught
again in a contract.
It was however decided to see
Mr. Clement and get him to sign
an agreement, and if he refused to
do it, to call another meeting.
The city clerk said the original

innings for the Benches, - but their
start was disastrous, Findlay loosing

Davies and Lawrence each being

then joined Findlay and the pair
made the best stand of the day,
adding 52 before being separated.

A number of the local Orangemen paraded last Sunday evening
to the Methodist church with all
their official regalia. Previous to
the parade a meeting was held in
Raymer's Hall, when the procession
was formed, and a route taken by
way of Water street, up Bernard
avenue", and along Pendozi street
to the church."
The Rev. S. J. Thompson, who
was also wearing an orange badge,
conducted an- interesting service.
In the course of a patriotic sermon
he referred to Orangemen as "men
who make a nation," and said that
it was on the subject of patriotism,
as a nation, that he wished to speak
that  evening.     He complimented
those  present  upon  the   parade,
which he said was one of the finest
he had seen in British Columbia,
and   he was  glad   to have them
present on that night.   There were
mahy  present  who  did not wear
the badge, but were never the less
in unity with the Orangemen in the
question of loyalty.     He   quoted
Moses  as  an  example  of a loyal
man, who, dying outside the limits
of his country, was given a vision
of his own land.    Moses, he said,
was a man who loved his country,
and   he  thought  it only right that
everyone present should  have a
good opinion of their native land.
He asked the audience if they had
ever read the marvellous book by
Ed. Hales, "The Man Without  a
Country."     The  story was  of   a
man ^ho was never allowed to see
his native land, 'never allowed to
see  his  own flag—in fact, he was
banished.    A vivid description is
given of- the sorrow and "degradation, t and. the piteous plight into
which the'man got owing to to his'
being " without a country."
"What shall we call a man without a , country ? " queried Mr.
Thompson. " He is nothing else
than a vagabond on the face of the
earth."
" We all know Canada as a great
nation," he continued; " what is. it
that makes Canada so great ?   The
greatness   of a nation  is  in the
obedience to  its   God — not   in
armies, not in size,,not in wealth.
It is Canada's birthday, and upon
such  a  great  occasion  we   have
rightly come to our God."    It was
forty-two years ago, he continued,
that the four provinces were confederated.     About  four hundred
million people hold   allegiance to
King Edward, and to be allied to
England    was   something   to   be
proud of.   St. Paul declared himself a citizen of no mean city, and
we could say the same.    As far as
wealth  was   concerned,   statistics
8h6we^~th"arth^average_weaittrof
every  Canadian was   $1,240,   as
compared with $ 1,010 average to
every  man  in England.   He enlarged  upon  the  growth   of   the
country, the increase of wheat, of
minerals,   and    of   the  fisheries.
" Truly," he said, " this is no mean
city I „. No I we are in a country we
Armstrong's Dominion
Day Celebrations
A large number  of people  left
on Thursday last to witness various
sports  at Armstrong.     The  boat
which was  carrying  quite  a  few
from Southern points was well  on
time and carried  with  it,  besides
the usual passengers, the two baseball teams, Summerland and  Kelowna, and also the lacrosse team.
On arrival at Armstrong the  town
was found smothered with bunting,
and   looking   altogether   en fete,
while the grandeur of the  dresses
worn by the  fair sex,  smothered
the   town  in  color presenting   a
brilliant spectacle.
An accident to the engine and
tender of a special train, which
blocked the line for some time,
caused great delay in landing some
of the visitors from southern points,
but the mishap did not seem to
mar to any great extent the glory
of the day.
The majority ot the games were
good.    The   lacrosse   match   between   Revelstoke    and- Vernon
took place,  attended by  a  large
number of enthusiastic  spectators,
as also did   the  baseball  matches
between Enderby and Revelstoke,
and  Kelowna   and   Summerland.
The last named match which started soon after noon, was practically
in Kelowna's hands.   Some ragged
playing was experienced  by  both
teams, Summerland being the most
to blame, and in the third  innings
the score was 7 to   1   in  favor  of
our boys.   At this stage Manchester was replaced  by  Hancock  in
the box, and a marked change was
found in the play.     Kelowna  did
not get another run, while'Summer-
land scored three runs in the fifth,
one in the'sixth, and three' in  the
-eventh'.   Summerland winning "a
match of seven innings by one run
The teams lined up as  follows:
Sports at Penticton
Despite   the   unfair   C.P.R. ar*

during the day.    Had one of the
larger boats been available there is.
no doubt that a large crowd would
have left, but eager enquirers at,'

with the unwelcome negative. The ;

make a trip, but owing to .the, difficulty in obtaining a skipper the
trip had to be called off.   .   ' '

should be proud of." The days
when people, were shut up for
showing their religion were past;
the times when it was a crime to
believe in Christianity were gone;
and it was his opinion that as long
as Canada was loyal to her God,
and served under the banner of the
cross, she would remain the great
nation that she is. The scare over
the German invasion, and the
building of Dreadnoughts, he did
not believe in, and thought it was
a bogey put forward to sell the
newspapers, or to get rid of some
material. The country would
never be conquered so long as it
was true to itself and true to the
word of God.
After the sermon the national
anthem was sung, and the Orangemen left the church, forming in
parade order again and returning
by -the same route to Raymer's

The lacrosse contest between
Armstrong and Kelowna was not
really as good, from a spectator's
point of view as the preceeding
game between , Revelstoke and
Vemon. Armstrong was far and
away better than Kelowna, and although some faulty passing was
experienced on ' both sides, the
majority of it fell to Kelowna. The
score finished at 7 to 3 in favor of
Armstrong.
The Vernon and Enderby bands
which were in attendance supplied
music throughout the day and
helped to liven up the dull
moments between events,, which
were very few.
The dare devil flight (so called)
of Leora was greeted with applause
when he made his appearance,
but the majority after the event
thought the show was rather tame,
more especially after witnessing
the high dive of last year, and
several put it down as the only
feature of the whole programme
that was at all disappointing.
The day taken as a whole was
decidedly a success, and great
credit is due to the promoters and
those who had the carrying out of
the various arrangements.

Some misunderstanding has
been forthcoming with reference to our report of last
week's council meeting, in
which Aid. Bailey is reported
to have said that he hoped the
Red Cross hose purchased
this year would would prove
of better quality than that purchased last year.
A conversation with Mr.
Sutherland reveals the fact that
no hose was bought last year,
and that the hose which was
purchased five years ago was
cheaper by 10c. a foot. He
took Aid. Bailey's remark on
the hose as a reflection on last
year's council. Aid. Bailey
however'declares emphatically
that he had no such meaning,
and says he has every consideration for last year's council
and thinks they did well in
their official capacity last year.
He had no idea of condemning
last year's council for the state
of the hose, and merely mentioned the fact, that the last
hose bought was not as good
as was expected, and that it
went to show that, although
the council bought what they
thought was a good sample,
they*were;not good judges of
hose, and consequently could
not tell how it would wear until it had been in use some
length of time.
The power house building
that is to be built, will after
much argument in the council
chamber, go up in a fire proof
state, with a corrugated iron
roof. The test of the ruberoid
roofing, conducted by Mr, Bailey shows the necessity of going
thoroughly into the question of
prevention from fireV and it is

Westbank, July 2nd, '09
Editor Orchard City Record
Dear Sir,
In your issue of yesterday's date
there appears a note on Westbank,
mentioning the hotel that is being
erected by Mr. J. E..Wheeler. This
is all correot enough, but exception
must be taken to your final remark, about the store. You say,
'Who is going to start a store over
there now ?'
We have a store in Westbank,
and have had it for over eighteen
months. For the first twelve
months it was not a store from
which you could lay in very elaborate supplies. But this year things
are moving a bit and Mr. W. M.
Collins has more than doubled the
size of his shop and now carries a
plentiful supply of all things in the
grocery line. Certainly we have
no store for soft goods, and I, for
one would much like to see one
start up here, there is undoubtedly
room. I am writing this, not as an
advertisement for Collins, but because I am a Westbanker and as
such, was not over pleased to read
a remark in a widely circulated
paper like the O.C.R. that would
give strangers the impression that
they would need to bring a packet
of sandwiches with them should
they desire to visit this side of the
lake.
Westbank is certainly going
ahead, slow perhaps, but sure. If
Mr. Wheeler is successful ia obtaining a license for the hotel he
is building it will certainly be a
great thing for this part of the
country. Every person in this
district, and we have quite a population, is in favor of it, and I am
only stating a bold fact that is well
known" over here, and the proof of
which is in my hands at the time
of writing, when I say that a petition
against the granting of the license
was signed by six names only,
three being in one family, and
one of the other three has now
turned around and says he is very,
soiry he ever appended his name
thereto.
Now Mr. Editor I happen to be
able to speak from experience in
regard to the starting and growth
of new towns, not in this part of
the world but in divers other
parts, and I consider that it can be
taken as a general rule that a gopd
hotel, well built, and above all well
run, does a hundred times-more
good than harm to. a new place.
1 have heard people say, that, a
hotel leads young men astray!
This is scarcely over correct, for
many reasons that can be gone into should any of your readers desire to dispute my contention. I
can tell you from personal observation that there is far more heavy
drinking and temptation put in the
way of young men now, than there
is likely to be when we have a
good clean hotel run by a 'man
with Mr. Wheeler's reputation.
Now if a man wants a-drinkif, (and
if a man wants one he will have
it), he knows it is not worth while
sending to Kelowna for one drink,v
so he gets a bottle. In nine cases
out of ten he gets six bottles while
he is about it, and then his friends
and their friends help him to drink
*___)
Bs_3______Ezseas
If you Want Your jams to keep, they
should be put up with
it, and many young men in the
circle, drink because they cannot
help it.. .1 have often heard it remarked by men who have travelled, and it is also my experience,
than there is more drunkenness in
a prohibition town than in a place
where there are licensed houses.
. I must apologize for taking up so
much of your valuable space; when
I started this I had no intention of
writing a long letter.
Believe me, yours faithfully,,

Otie Surprise That Was the Forerunner of Another,
That was a good old comedy Jblshop
who one fine day entered a large jeweler's establishment in Repent street.
London, to make an extensi. e purchase
of valuable presents. He selected
them with great care as regards .their
artistic value, but quite regardless of
cost The proprietor and his assistants buzzed round his lordship. The
selected valuables were packed in separate parcels at his suggestion, neatly
tied and sealed, and he had just taken
a seat in the private office of the proprietor and was feeling in his> pocket
for his check book when two men,' who
had been peering,in at the glass door
leading to the street, walked up the
shop and stood behind the bishop.
They were plainly dressed, sharp looking men and thus bluntly addressed
the jeweler:
"What tins this man been ordering?"
The bishop looked up, saw the men,
turned pale, clutched the sides of the
chair, dropped his glasses and looked
ns if he would bolt. Before be could
stir, however, the hnndcuffs were on
his wrists. * .
'"Bishop, indeed!" said one of the
men. "He was a colonel yesterday
Here, 'bishop.' come along to Vine
street. 'Bishop,' indepd! Ha. ' ha!
Well, that's a good *un!" And, turning to the astonished jeweler, he continued: "Just coppedhlm In time, sir;
lucky for you.' Oht| by*the way, you
[might get one of your assistants to
bring round these parcels' he has selected. We must enter them at the
police station. We have a cab at the
door. We have been tracking the
bishop all the morning."
Without a word the "bishop" followed the detectives into a cab,, and
all three got In as the" assistant came
out with the valuables.
"Here," said one of the detectives
through the window, "place those in
here—they;will be safer—and you get
on the top with the driver."
, It was not far to Vine street; but, as
usual, the,traffic was congested In Oxford circus, and the cab had,to halt
occasionally. It was, however, soon at
the police station. The assistant jumped off the driver_'seat and opened the
door. . •       "
The cab was empty!—Strand Magazine.   >

PRESENTIMENT^/'
Incidents In Which Coming Events
Cast Their Shadows Before.
Coming events cast their shadows be-
fore'them. The writer is led to "believe this because several Incidents In
the lives of his parents corroborate
the, theory that presentiments of good
and eyil do come to persons unawares.
I wflTmention two of them.
In the summer of 187— my father
late at night was returning to his farm
from tbe little town qf Malton. - ,He
had stayed unusually late.. When he
' reached the' farm all .was quiet Removing the harness from his horse, he
proceeded 'to the carriage house and
hung it In its place.
He came out and closed tbe door. As
he did so he heard the harness fall. It
was very dark. He went back into the
house and found the' harness still banging in Its place. The same occurrence
took place again. He went back again'
and found it In Its place. '
When the third time he heard the
sound of falling harness he did not
go back.    '   .
Several weeks later his barn burned,
and it happened that the same harness was In the barn loft, a valuable
set He attempted to save it. The
staircase burned behind him, and he
wa- compelled to jump for his life
from'a window. His previous experience came to him vividly. He saved
tbe harness, but at the, risk of his life.
Another vivid- incident I recall was
my mother sitting by the fire with a
sick baby. The nurse was present
too, and both were wide awake. Her
father appeared to her and advised her
as to the baby's treatment and nther
family matters. He vanished as quickly as he had come. The next day she
heard of his death.—London Tit-Bits.

Accident to Thames Steamboat
When passing under London Bridge,
the New Palace steamship company's
steamboat, Royal Sovereign, met with' a
curious accident. For some unaccountable
reason'she swung sideways and butted
into one of the bridge piers, smashing in
her paddle box and disabling her from
taking her trip to Margate. About 300
passengers were on board at the time,
and were at once transferred to the South •
wold Belle. Investigation showed the
mishap to be only of a slight nature, and
and she will possibly resume her traffic
in a week or ten days.
i Electrocuted on Tram
An extraordinary tram accident, and one
which is the first of its kind occured at
Dudly. A man living at Sedgly boarded
the car late at night and sat on top, leaning against the standard with his arms on
the rail. Later he was found dead by the
conductor. An examination of the car
showed that for some reason the pole had
become charged with electricity, and had
sent a charge through the man. The jury
found a verdict of death through
misadventure.

Explosion on a Submarine
A p'etrol explosion occurred on'Submarine A 4, in Portsmouth Harbor lately,
the explosion taking place through a search
for a petrol leakage. The Lieutenant-
Governor and three of his crew were badly injured by burning. When .the catastrophe had been found out a plucky
rescue wss made by Chief Petty Officer
Hines, who donned a smoke helmet and
lowered himself to the scene, of the explosion. One by one he brought the men
up, not staying a moment to get a breath
of fresh air. All the injured man are
likely to recover, but Hines has suffered
greatly from exhaustion after his daring
rescue.

Pines for'Fox Poisoning,,
i' So many foxes have been poisoned by
Essex farmers who have had their chicken

News ofthe Prairie
'■■■ A very encouraging report has
been issued by the office of the
grain' department .'of -the CP.R.
with reference to the crop outlook
for 1909. Wheat is generally from
15 to 20 inches high, and the
frequent showers are doing much
to improve the quality of the grain.
The growth is rapid and prospects
were never better.
" 'A snake in' a perfect form was
found in.a large stone^at Weyburn
lately. ; {Fhe \ reptile \,which' measured 54 inches, and at its largest
pairt.wai'C about one .and three
quarters of an, inch thick was found
by some.men who were building
&\ f8tbne;? foundation for a new
house/ It' was found necessary to
break a'large stone with the result
that.the petrified,form was found.
The' snake wasi" cut during the
breaking operations, and the respective parts measured 16 and 38
inches long.   /J —
A severe storm was experienced
in the Weyburn\ district last week,
attended by thunder and lightning.
The storm was very sudden in
commencing, and .when it came,
caused.muchcdamage>>to. houses,
barns and various farm stock.
The hail that attended the storm
hqweyer was not enough to harm
aHy-of the crop.'' ■''-"•'■

The following appeared in the Brantford
Expositor shortly after the earthquake:
"The situation in San Francisco has offered a most peculiar, but.at the same time
a very convincing object lesson in regard
to the benefits of temperance. Immediately
after the earthquake the authorities of the
desolated city closed every saloon within
the limits of the municipality, i absolutely
prohibiting the sale of intoxicants. It is
well set forth in a terse article in The San
Francisco Chronicle, which views the sit.
uation without predjudice. The Chronicle
says: *
"San Francisco for the past fortnight has
been', absolutely free from disorder and
virtually free from crimes of/ violence.
There- have been no street brawls. No
drunken brute has beaten his' wife. No
gamblers have murdered each other in
low resorts. Except for some dealings
with sneak thieves, the occupation of the
police courts is gone. It is a most impres-
sive object lesson of the value to society of
the restriction of the liquor traffic. We are' -
promised a continuance of this peaceful
condition for some time to come, save'only
as drunken men may drift over from Oakland, where the authorities have been so
wreckless . as to allow saloons to open.
This absolute demonstration that the saloons
are responsible for all crimes of violence,
makes it imperative that, whenever they
shall be_aiIowed- io reopen-in-ihis-ciiy,—
their license fees be fixed at a rate which ■
will protect the public against being taxed
for the control or suppression of those
forms of crime for which the saloons are
now proved to be solely responsible.
ANOTHER
"I will sell you no more' whiskey," said
a saloon-keeper to a dissipated young man
who stood at th'n bar asking for a drink;
"you have had delirium tremens once, and
I cannot sell you any more.   Stand aside."
He stepped aside to make room for a
couple of young men who had just entered,
and the saloon-keeper waited upon them
very politely. The other had stood silent
and sullen, and when they had finished he
walked up to the saloon-keeper and thus
addressed him:
"Six years! ago at their age, I stood
where those young men are now. 1 was
a man with fair prospects.' Now at the age
of twenty-eight, I am a wreck, body and
mind. You led me to drink. In this room
I formed the-habit which has been my:
rtiin., Now1, sell me a few glasses more,
and your Work will be done. I shall soon
be out of the way; there is no hope for me.
But they can be saved. Do not sell it to
therrf. 'Soil' it to me' and let me die, and
the world will be rid o. me. But for heo-.
ven's sake.sell no. more to them.",   ,,     ,   .

while Winnipeg expects to be overcrowded
with Orangemen from all points. At

Orangemen." » The committee decided to

Dropped Into Rioer.
A strange drowning fatality was witness
ed, when a Bulgarian, who was , working
on a bridge construction outfit, across the
Frazer River, was drowned. The deceased was i wheeling a barrow across the
bridge, when he and the barrow fell off the
planks that were fixed across, and both
disppeared into the river below. The
body was never seen again and it is considered that he must have got entangled
with the wheelbarrow and sank with it.
Steamer Sinks Perry Boat.
A strange accident occurred at Toronto
last week, when a big steel freighter, H. M.
Pellatt, of the Canadian Lake and Ocean
Navigation Co.,'which was docking at her
berth by the Bay Street Slip' crashed into
the ferry boat, John Hanlan. throwing her
against the wharf and tearing off her stern.
The vessel sank in less than two minutes,
after this the' huge vessel cut through a
little pleasure boat and ramming the end
of the wharf, tore up 20 to 30 feet'of the
newly laid sidewalk. The cause of the
accident is at present kept by the
company. - •' ' '

while the agricultural section will reach
200,000 dollars.      ~1„    '

Thunderbolt Strikes Street Car.
Considerable damage was done by a
thunderbolt at Winnipeg last week. At
about nine o'clock lightening struck the
park line cat No. 10, coming down in a
soiid ball of fire. It set fire to the car
and burnt it up. No one was in the car
at the time, although a number were near
at hand to'witness the SCciic.—it was a lOIig
time before the track was finally cleared
after the fire had been put out. The same
storm struck a stable in Notre Dame Ave.,
lulling a horse and damageing the property
but no fire resulted.
Police Hot on Trail of Robbers.
Contrary to expectations the train robbers who held up no. 97, are not local men
but possibly come from across the border.
The dead robber shows very few clues as
to identity but the capture of the others
may set some new light on the matter.
The police have traced the man who killed Constable Decker and another as far as
Red Gulch, when a search will be made
and possibly the robbers captured. It is
known that they are well armed. In the
boat left behind was a valise containing
dynamite which indicates that the robbers
were about to blow up another train in the
near future.

Drowned in Elh Rioer.'
r ,
W. T. Jones about 40 years of age met
his, death by drowning lost week. Jones
went for a swim in Elk river, and as the
current was very strong he was carried
down the stream and was never seen
afterwards. A strong swimmer standing
nearby went out to look for the body and
.was unable to battle well with the, swift
current and consequently the search was
fruitless. Jones was an old timer at Fernie, and had often bathed in the stream
before. How'he met his death is not
known but many surmise he must have
been siezed with cramp and carried down
the stream helpless.
Banb Robbed at Rainy Rioer.
Last Friday the local branch of the Bank
of Nova Scotia, at Rainy.. River, Ontario
was held up and robbed of $10,000. The
robbers chose a time when Manager Tem-
pleton was alone in the bank. There were
many people in the streets at theAime, but
no one knew what was going on inside the
bank. The robbers made away into the
woods, and it is expected they will''cross
the Rainy River into Minnesota. The river
front is being patrolled and many men are
in the woods searching for the men. The
revolvers with which the hold up was
accomplished were stolen s few days previous from a local hardware store. Three
men having previously entered the store
to look at fire arms. The' posse pursuing
the men have every chance of obtaining
them, as they have a good description from
both the manager of bank and from the
store keeper who shewed them the recovers previous to the robbery7"
Many  Homestead Entries.
The homestead entries "at i Winnipeg
during the month of June, were 159
compared with'53 for the corresponding
time last year, exactly . one third of the
entries received thisVear. The increase is
due to the throwing open of odd numbered
sections and the increased survey-of lands.
The location, between Lake Winnipeg and
Lake Manitoba seems to be the most
favoured, and is being taken up rapidly.
Large Portion of Cobalt Destroyed,
by Fire. ' '    I

A telegram from Toronto on Jury 2nd
gives the information that the'business
section of Cobalt has been wiped out by
fire, the loss already is over $500,000. The
firemen are still fighting the fire, and the
entire business section of' the, town has
gone. The fire started in the Chinese
restaurant, which was built of wood and
the flames soon got a rapid hold. The
Catholic Church and the residence of the
priest was burned and great havoc general
throughout the city. About 3,000 are rendered homeless.' . .

Hail and Stor m Damages Crops

- A heavy storm accompanied with hai]
and wind of a cyclonic force swept over
Carievale, Saskatchewan, last Friday.
Several houses were completely demolished, and hail did damage to the crops generally, while rain * fell in torrents. At
Indian Head, on Dominion Day, a fierce
storm raged, the' lightning striking a house
in the Wide Awake district and burning it
to the ground.

seed of th: violet.
The Flower  Is Aggressive  In Spite of
Its Boasted Modesty.
The common wild vicJot affords one
of the most remarkable illustrations of
the care and apparent forethought of
tiature In preserving a species As everybody knows, the violet grows in the
shade, in pastures, woods and fields
where the grass is abundant and long.
It comes up early in the spring and
flowers at a time when the grass is
most abundant and succulent. Of
course it is liable to be cut down by
the scythe, but much more likely Is it
to be bitten off by grazing animals.
The violets that come in the spring
either do not seed at all or very sparingly, so that if the plant relied on its
spring flowers for seed It would probably perish off the earth in a very few
years.
But in the late fall the plant bears
auother crop of blossoms tbat are nev
er seen save by the professional botanist. They are very small, utterly insignificant in appearance, and grow
either just at or below the surface of
the ground. These are the flowers
which produce the seeds for the next
season. The flowers on long stems
blooming in spring are only for show,
the hidden flowers are for use. and the
number of seeds they bear may be
judged -from the ease with which n
wild violet bed spreads.
When the seeds are ripe the pod ex
pi odes, .scattering thein to a considerable distance, often to ten or twelve
feet,from the parent plant, so that in
spite of its boasted modesty the violet
not only takes care of itself, but becomes a  troublesome t aggressor.
SWOONED AT THE  BELL
Odd
Effect of One Cure Through the
Subliminal Consciousness.
A very well known oculist tells of
one case where healing through the
subliminal consciousness was really a
source of embarrassment to the physician who was responsible for it. Several years ago when the eye specialist
—he knows about ears and throats, too
—was studying in Vienna"*., young girl
was brought to the hospital to be treated for some nervous disorder. Hypnotism—or suggestion, as one is asked to
call it these days—was used, and she
was brought under his influence by
the ringing of a bell. After a few
treatments she went to sleep, or into
the unconscious and receptive state, as
soon as she heard the bell. She was
speedily cured and left the hospital.
Next day she was brought unconscious,
roused and sent away. The day after
that she was brought in again. Indeed,
for some time scarcely a-day passed
when she wasn't carried in limp and
unconscious. She became a positive
nuisance to the great neurologist that
had hypnotized her, and he finally sent
persons to watch her. It was found
that on her way to work she passed a
certain church and usually was at the
door at the moment during the celebration of the mass when the bell rang.
At Its tinkle she calmly curled up and
went to sleep. It was necessary to
suggest to her the next time she was
brought to the hospital that no bell in
the world could have any effect on her
except the one rung in the hospital by
the neurologist. After that she went
about the city quite unaffected by the
bells, and the neurologist drew a breath
of relief.
Just a Way They Have.
Inhabitants of the Isle of Wight
speak of "going to England" when they
leave their own fragment of the kingdom. A patriotic Cornish man also
"goes to England" when he crosses the
Tamar. Similarly inhabitants of the
Balkan peninsula talk of "going to Europe" when they leave their own corner of the continent, in curious contrast with the people of Great Britain;
who regard themselves as both of and
in "Europe," and it Is only "the continent" that they visit. There is an old
"story~of a~_COt_is_r_ninister who prayed for a blessing upon "the Inhabitants
of Great and Little Cumbrae (islands

islands of Great Britain nnd Ireland."

The farmers on the Rutland
estate are now relieved, temporarily at least, of their irrigation
difficulties. The damage done by
the recent high water in the Creek,
which stopped the supply of water
for a week or two created a problem, which was not easy of solution. The difficulty has been overcome however, by bridging the
creek with a new flume and connecting up with an old disused
flume and headgate. Water is
now running in the ditch, .but as
the creek has sunk rather low it
will be necessary to dam up the
stream considerably to get a satisfactory flow. The work, although
perhaps of a rather temporary
nature, has been very satisfactorily
and quickly performed, Messrs.
Schell Bros., the contractors, giving
the farmers a rather pleasant surprise, in that they undertook to do
the work in a month and have
finished it in a little over a week.

this lady had only been convicted
four times, three of which were for
vagrancy. Constable Tooth urged
that under these conditions" imprisonment ought to be given, and
the Magistrate sentenced her to
three years at Kamloops, in order

C. A. Magrath on Railway
ComJSetiton.
Mr C. A. Magrath. M. P.- for Medicine
Hat, Alberta, when after the  interests  of
his constituents with regard to some railway     locations,'    expressed     vigourous
opinions on the extraordinary propensity of
l& the great railway systems  of Canada  for
[^paralleling each  others  lines.   " I  really
'i'helieve," he said, " that if one system were
V; to set off  on an  excursion  to the  North
Pole at least one other system would think
i^-.it necessary to escort it there with  a   parallel line a very short distance away."
What  renders this  disposition  on  the
4 part of the railways serious  is  the  extraordinary increase of settlement in the west.
Farmers are pouring in and the land is being taken up with great rapidity.   Agricultural settlement in   the   nature   of things
spreads aver wide areas.    Numerous settlements are   in   acute   need   of   railway
service : in many cases they were  formed
under a direct promise of the building of
branch lines.   So rapid is the inrush that
if the three great railway systems were to
>\devote their whole energy, not to compet-
f ing with, each other,  not  to  fighting  for
entrance to common interests, but  to  the
serving of the whole country, it would be
difficult for them to reach all-trie settlements
[ which need their presence and will amply
repay    the    building    of   the  -necessary
'branches.   Yet the railways with this crying need confronting them, with numerous
profitable branch lines in "their own, territory remaining unbuilt,  are  not  attacking
the  real problem but are  concentrating
their'stiength upon competition with each
other.''   They are more"interested in getting
into each others territory than securing their
own.. And in particular they 'are desper-
atly bound to compete with each other in
the service of more important centres.
"I should almost feel disposed," said Mr.
Magrath, " to advocate the adoption by the
Government of a distinct policy with regard to this evil. The Government might
assign to each  company its - own  district
JL _,
fsand require it to serve that before allowing
it to travel outside to compete with the
others."   "" ,7, .
Train Robbers Cause Thoughts
On Better Safeguards '

<l t Editor—"Well, he was, carrying out your
f, ideas.   -   . r           _-_.    ,      ',      .
Our friends, the train robbers are getting
very busy.   Time was when the train bandit did not dream of plying his  trade  on
the Canadian side of the boundary   line.
Of late, word seems to have gone out that
after all Canadian law   is  easy,   and   one
robbery succeeds another.   The inference
is very strong that if Bill Miner had not
found his road   out of  New  Westminster
Penetentiary so  remarkably   smooth,   the
popularity of the train robbing habit would
not be so great.   The whole episode of his
escape wears a most suspicious aspect, and
this new hold-up serves to emphasize it.
The circumstances in connection with  the
British Columbia end of the  escape  were
most extraordinary; the  looseness  of  the
prison discipline, the indulgences extended
to so desperate a criminal, the irregular interviews which he was  allowed   to  hold,
the way in v. hich'his escape was prepared
by allowing him  to   grow   his  'hair   and
moustache, the strange delay  in  notifying
Ottawa, all have a most  unfortunate,   not
to say sinister  aspect.     What  is  equally
strange is the determined  effort made by
the Government at Ottawa to cover up the
matter.   When Mr. J. D. Taylor, M. P., be-
gan to question the Ministers,   they  made
every effort to keep things dark, and showed the greatest anger at him for sticking to
his subject and dragging the facts into the
light.   Mr. Aylesworth attacked Mr. Taylor personally in a-most  savage   manner;
his language would have  been  severe, if
Mr. Taylar   had   helped the  criminal   to
escape, instead of being merely concerned
to find out how he -had broken the  prison
At the present moment the'order of events
seems to be as follows:
1. Miner robbed the train and was sent
to the penitentiary.
2. Miner escaped from the penitentiary
as the result of the negligence, to put it
kindly of the prison officials.
3. The Ministers at Ottawa were
savagely angry at the facts as to Miner's
escape being made known in < Eastern
Canada."
4. Train - robbing is - going ahead
briskly. ■>

LIMITED, of ONTARIO,
Are extensive growers of all kinds of Fruit Trees, and. other Nur-,
aery Stock, such as Roses, Shrubs, and Ornamental Trees, and offer to
planters or Orchards, choice trees, true to name. '

old root, or a two year old tree on a four year old root, aa desired, at
prices that will be considered reasonable.
We grow the Duchess Dwarf Pear very extensively, which is betas   .
used as a filler by a good many planters.
Our Peach, Apple. Pear, cherry and Plum trees are all of first quality well grown, well rooted, and will please the most critical buyers.
. Thorough cultivation in our Nurseries ensure a splendid root system .
which of .course is most necessary in a young tree.
During the past two seasons we have successfully shipped oir stock
to all parts of the Province, and can guarantee satisfaction to all our
patrons.
The members of our firm are all practical Nurserymen, with long
experience, and they are giving their whole time to this one business, ,

CITY COUNCIL MEETING
Continued from page I
soon as possible.and that an order
had been  given  already  for the
-lumber.
A discussion then ensued  as to
: whether it would be better for the
city teams to be engaged  in  haul-
. ing the sand  and  gravel  for the
building."
Aid.1 Elliott was of the opinion
that it would be better to get on
with the council work, as there
was a lot to be done round and
about the city, he thought the outside teams ought to have a chance.
Mr. Millie attended and informed
them that he wished to put an extra pole line on Harvey Avenue
and Ellis Street, and wanted to
know the distance the council
would like him to place his poles
out in the street.
The matter was left in the hands
of the Board of Works to   decide.
Mr. Rose pointed out to the
. council that some mistake was
made in calling the continuation of
Eli Avenue, Harvey Avenue. It
was gazetted in 1892 as Eli Ave.
and has been called since by the
two names, Harvey Avenue up to
Richter Street and Eli Avenue
afterwards.
Mr. Millie drew the attention of
the council to the fact that several
people who had land on the lake
shore were fencing in the foreshore
away down into the water, when
they had no deeds, right or title to
take over the land. The matter
was left in the hands of the city
clerk to thrash the matter out and
get some definate agreement
settlement.
When asked about the fire
gade agreement Aid. Elliott
not know what agreement
wanted and had therefore
drawn up any form. It was generally thought that the best way to
come to an agreement would be
to call a meeting of the fire brigade and come to some agreement
as to what was wanted.
Aid. Ball asked  that  the  architect.should be instructed   to  have
' the cement that is  going  into  the
power house tested.
Aid. Bailey also thought the
proposed ruberoid roofing ought
to be tested, and the sample left
by Mr. McKenzie at last meeting
was brought forward. Aid. Bailey
applied the match, and a good
blaze instantly started. On these
conditions it was decided to  have
or
bri-
did
was
not
a galvanized iron roof, it being
considered cheaper and of a better
fire resisting material.
Aid. Ball thought that if bins
were to be used there would be
no need to have concrete floors in
the boiler room, and that the whole
of the floor should be of wood.
It was next moved by Aid.
Elliott seconded by Aid. Bailey
that By-law No. 63 should be read
a third time.   ,i:
Attention was drawn to... the
number of things left by the men
who went out to protect the
bridges at the time of the flood.
Sacks had been taken j out and
filled with sand,, afterwards being
left to rot, also a chain had been
left on one of the bridges. A general discussion ensued as to where
the city property was going. The
various pails which were charged
up were not all to be found, some
16 or 17 had been returned to the
stores, and quite a few had been
stacked in the tool shed at the
power house. The hose which
was used to test the pumps had
been left there since the fire, and
generally goods had been used by
people on behalf of the city and
left about. It was decided to look
into the matter and find out how
much was missing.
The city clerk informed the
council that the plans for the city
park were in, but it was decided
to call a meeting of the park committee, and bring the matter again
before the council at next meeting.
The following motions were
carried:
Moved by Aid. Elliott, seconded
by Aid. Rowcliffe. That the city
clerk write to the Minister of Justice at Ottawa, asking for information re foreshore on the Okanagan
Lake, to see if a property holder
can fence out into the water.
That a surveyor be engaged to
survey the foreshore of the Okanagan Lake and get out; a plan of
same, for the foreshore asked for
by the city council of 1908.
The Mayor asked the press to
make the following notice, received
by the council, generally known
through their columns.
The Western Irrigation Association hereby extend to you a
cordial invitation to be present at
the sessions bf their annual convention to be held at Lethbridge
Alberta, on August the 5 th and 6th
1909. The meeting then adjourned to meet again at the call of the
Mayor.      .
In the report ot last council
meeting it was stated that one
sixth rebate should be made if
taxes were paid on or before the
1 st of October. This should read
one sixth, if taxes are paid .before
the 14th of August and 10 per
cent, if paid before the 1st of
October.
TheLundoner In Yorkshire.
A young city swell went into a tavern
and cast about for amusement. Feeling
secure, in the possession of the most money, he made the following offer:—"I will
drop money into a hat with any man in
the room. The man who holds out the
longest shall take the whole, and treat the
company." "I'll do it." said an old farmer.
The cockney dropped a shilling—the farmer followed with another. "Go on, said
the cockney dropping in another. "I won't"
said the Yorkshireman; "take the whole
and treat the company, as you promised
There are now about 9,500,000 telephones in the world. Europe claims only 2,

Bills are out announcing the

The Editor The Orchard City Recard,
Gentlemen.
" In looking over the proceedings of the
City Council in your last issue, I notice that
you quote one of the aldermen as showing
a sample " Red Cross "' hose, and saying
that at 85c, it was cheaper than the price
paid last year, and another alderman as
saying that last year the hose was' of very
poor quality.   The facts are as follows
Part of the fire hose was purchased 5
years ago, and the balance 3 years ago. The
latter was the Canadian Rubber Co's.
" Safety " brand, and is preferred by many
to the Gutta Percha & Rubber Co's " Red
Cross" hose. The price then paid was
75c. per foot, and the price of these two
brands to-day are: •' SafetyV' 75c. and
" Red Cross,"60c.   '
