 Meeting of City Council.
Additions to Premises Within Fire Limits - Dredging of Mill
Creek - Mr. Bailey Urges that City Takes Steps to
Secure Control of Irrigation Water.
The usual, meeting bf the  City
'   Council was held last Monday; the
' only absentee, being Aid. Ball.
The minutes of the meeting held
,   on October 4th, haying been read
and adopted, the city clerk read
the following correspondence:
.     From C. C. Josselyn, re bulbs.
Filed."   *
Brent Noxon & Co., re debentures.
Filed.     ;
Canadian Fairbanks Co., asking
for balance of account.   * >
The mayor pointed out that the
plant at the power house had not
yet been tested, and it was agreed
that this should be done before the
final payment was made. This
account was consequently laid on
the table.
A letter was also read from the
Kelowna Farmers' Exchange, asking that their new building should
be connected with the electric light,
and also pointing out that the
present state of Gaston, avenue
would make it very', difficult for
teams^hauling heavy loads, to get
along. A , suggestion was made
that the city should take some
steps to have the road gravelled, so
as to save expense in the future.^
The former clause of the letter,
-re  connection   with   the   electric
light service,1 was referred to  the
• chairman of the" Light committee. *
Mr. Blackwood, :thercity pound
•keeper, attended andpresented his
account of moneys, received   for
pound dues.   The account was left
; in the hands of Aid., Elliott, to* re-
\. port on • at   next'' iheeting,x.to* '-be
,f passed if found' correct. - •     'JA. j
" ^Mr. Blackwood said he ha3 had
some difficulty "with'~ reference   to
some, people,who' considereed the
charges made for pound fees, were
'not in compliance with the By-law.
The byjaw was looked up and it
was found-thaithe' fees  specified
thereon, were as follows: — Pound
keeper's charges, $ I., city's pound
penalty^ $ 1., and feed per day, 50c,
makin'g'in -ill, a charge" of two dollars for each, animal, pound fees,
and fifty, cents per day for feed.  ,
,  ^Ald'.'Rowcliffe.reported-on the
painting of the powerhouse toofj-
stating that he had got the opinion
of   several   people,   and   it   was
suggested that it would  be better
to wait for some time, until the roof
was painted, as the. paint would
- adhere more, readily- if. the   roof
was left for a certain length of time.
It was,agreed" to,do nothing further
with reference to the matter, until
the roof was left exposed  to  the
air for a period.
Aid. Bailey reported pu the teri-
—tiers- torsidewalks-"oiT15eac_i~aricl
Park Avenues, and ir was pointed
out that Mr. .Biggar. the lowest
tenderer,- had • agreed" <to • place a
12 ft. plank at the base of the
trestle' work supporting the walk
over the slough on Park Avenue.
No action was- taken, however, in
awarding the contract.     ' ** •
Aid. Bailey, also reported that
•' several sidewalks had been repair-
. ed, bnt still some were found that
needed mending up.   These would
be seen to.
Aid. Cox reported on the pro*
posed addition to C. C. Josselyn's
store, and stated that the plans did
not appear to him to be satis-
facory. *■
- It was generally considered that
as the Oak Flail; had been given
permission <to" extend their front,
permission'should be given to. Mr.
Josselyn also, but in his (Mr. Cox's)
opinion it was a different proposition. Apparently ' the addition
had too much wood work in connection with'it..' It-was also pointed out that the Oak Hall extension
was only of a temporary nature,
while in Mr. Josselyn's case the
work might be regarded as more
permanent.
Mr.-jHudson's proposed stand
nex't to the' harness store was also
mentioned. It was pointed out
that the space between the harness
store and Axel Eutin's office was
about four feet. Aid. Cox stated
that* he /had seen Mr.' HUdson
during tho week with reference to
• - ■ i   ■'   i
the matter, and had learned that a
corrugated iron roof would be
placed on the building, and the
front be nearly all glass. As there
would be very little wood work
the building might be allowed to
be put up.
Aid. Rowcliffe wished to know
if the city had power to grant permission for such a building within
the fire limits, and upon his recommendation the law was looked up.
According to the by-law it was
found that no addition could be
made that was not of brick or iron
or a combination of the two.
The reading of the bv-law caused
a return to thequestion of the Oak
Hall addition, and Aid. Cox asked
the council to reconsider their
decision, as permission was given
somewhat hurriedly. Some lumber
would have to be used, and he
was not sure if the council had
enough control to ^llow such an
addition to go up. ,
• It -was agreed to ask for plans
and specifications from the Oak
Hall and Mr. Josselyn, Mr. Hudson
being allowed to go ahead with
with his proposition provided he
obtain the permission of the owners of the property on each side.
'Mayor DeHart stated that the
places where^rhe sidewalk had been'
torn* up in * Glenn avenue and
Richter street, in connection with
the building operations,, were filled
in with gravel, and provision had
been made to, safeguard the
public, i . - .. ' - > „ _
7 The'Tnaybr also reported on "„tHe
life-buoys,' which, have been placed'
on the wharf. He suggested ropes
should be placed on the buoys,
and that the buoys be changed for
ones of a lighter description, ' so
that they could be handled better
for throwing out into the lake. .
Hidson stated that the buoys
were capable of'holding up three
or four persons, and he would not
advide lighter buoys being procured
Rope" was'hot generally used attached to^'the life-buoy. .It was,
however'agreed'to provide rope,
so that in the case of-a false throw,
the buoy could be '.brought back
ami throwrY 'again. > ' < -• j

Aid. Bailey severely criticised
the account sent in byT. >^. Stirling
for hay and feed. The debt, he
stated was incurred'some, three or
four months ago, and the bill had
not been sent in * before. The
majority of the people were-aware
that it was usual for the city to pay
their bills' monthly, and he had
often gone up to the city clerk to
find out how much money he had
left for improvement purposes. By
adding the average expenditure he
could find out pretty nearly hbw
much money he had in hand, and
these accounts coming in months
after the debt was incurred, put
him entirely out of, his reconing.
He refused to O.K. the bill.
'Aid. Elliott remarked that the.
fire hose had' been tested by Mr.
Russell up to 150 lbs. pressure and
had been found all right.
Some merriment yras caused
when it was   remarked   that   the
Contiun»d'«n p*c* &
,i
Major James Shepherd, of
Queenston, Ontario, an expert on
road-making,- addressed a very
small audience in the Opera House
last Tuesday. Considering the
importance of the subject it is to be
regretted that'there was not a
greater number present.
Mr.. H. W. Raymer, who_ occupied the chair, made a few preliminary remarks, chiefly in appol-
ogy for the small attendance;   *
Major Shepherd _ opened " his
lemarks by saying that he'had had
a drive round the district with Mr.
Michael Hereron during the day,
and had obtained a good general
idea 'as to the state of the roads.
He was sorry that there was riot
a larger audience present that night
and said that if the people of Kelowna had riot more interest in 'the
town than they had in their roads,
he would be sorry for Kelowna.
The   people  as a whole should
take an interest in their streets and
not leave it entirely to a council to
handlp.    Many councils, he' said,
will go as far as the people ask
them to, but no further.
i It was _a matter of about six or
seven - years" since  he  was last in
the   district, and" was surprised at
the  marked   improvement  in ,the
country   roads'.    He had travelled
largely over the various districts in
the province, and had never seen
such a large number of good roads
all savoring of permanency.   The
term permanent he was sorry he
could "not apply to the city.    The
road in front of the Lakeview Hotel
he singled out as being the worst
iri  the,.;city,  being  practically, of
shale   rock   and7gravel 'put. on
straight without'any preparation.
Roads  must  have  a * good  solid
preparation   before  the top is put
on', otherwise they will never be a
success.      He congratulated  Kelowna    on , having    a ^good .dry
climate, otherwise' the main streets
would be impassable.     The  sidewalks were a credit to the town,
but the  roads were a disgrace to
the sidewalks.'
The most permanent way of fixing the roads - was to get a good
solid foundation to start with, and
to run a drainage system along the
sides of the road. The top should
then.be put on.
Kelowna was a progressive town,
and he would like to advise gradual t steps being taken, - so much
being done this year, and.so much
each succeeding year, and a steady
rate of progress st-ictly adhered to.
, Soon/ with the increased use of
automobiles, machines which were
the best dusl producers ever creat-

cu,-i\ciuniia—wuuiu—uc—uuuui-U
with dust, and some steps would
have to be taken to cope with it.
Oil was generally found to be the
best and most permanent dust
allayer, and he was confident that
before fnany years were passed
Kelowna would have to use oil on
the streets to,keep down the dust.
With the fine broad roads in the
country, and the increase of people
coming into the valley, the natural
plans of tourists from America and
other places would be to visit by
means of an automobile, Kelowna,
the Okanagan's great fruit-growing
centre. If oil was to be used, the
roads' would have to be in good
condition, otherwise it would take
too much material to keep them
clean.
Mr. T. G. Speers asked if a 66ft.
road was necessary in a district
like this. "*
Mr. Shepherd replied that taking
into account the ever-increasing
service of motor cars, and the
probable increase ef other traffic, a
66 ft. road would be advisable. If
conditions were to remain as they
were today, a 40 ft. road would be
ample, but one never knew what
the -next invention in the way of
road vehicles would be. To make
a 66 ft. road would increase value
of the property in time to come,
and it would be a step in the tight
direction to have the road as wide
as possible so as to be ready for
the increased traffic which was
bound to come.
Mr* Speers also   asked   if   the
shale rock used here was good for
the top of a road.
Major Shepherd was of opinion
that it was a bit on the soft side
and would be better harder, but
that>a good road could be made of
the material, provided a good
foundation was made, and the
shale rock well packed.
Mr. Michael Hereron said that
the shale rock found in the district
was much harder than it appeared, j
and never turned into dust. He
had found it excellent material for
a top surface, and one road that he
had in mind j^ch had never been
been rolled was as smooth as
possible.
Asked about the best material
for making city streets, Major
Shepherd thought the macadam
used in Victoria was too expensive,
and cost too much to keep in repair.
The wearing qualities of macadam
he did not praise, as some cities
where macadam was used were
not at all satisfied with it. He considered vitrified brick one of the
best materials for city streets, and
the cost of laying it down would
only be a trifle over $2.40 per
square yard. Asphalt brick was
also good, but costs more, possibly
$2.55 per square yard.
The use of .the grader was also
advocated .on the good smooth
roads, but could not be used to
advantage on the rough places.
Mr. Blackwood mentioned that
several of the streets had a sponge
like surface in the spring of the
year, and asked for a suggestion to
prevent it.
Under and surface draining, said'
Major Shepherd, was the only system that would rectify the trouble,
and such a drainage system was
badly needed'all over the city.
JA vote of thanks was then passed to,Major Shepherd, and after a
few'more growls about the meagre
attendance, the meeting broke up..

A.R. Muirhead drove J.J. Stubbs
from Vernon here last Wednesday
in the 'short time of three and ' a
half hours. Mr. Stubbs had accepted an engagement to play at the
ball held in the Opera House- last
night.
A meeting of the Board of Trade
was held in the Reading Room
yesterday. In comparison with
the last two or three meetings there
was a good attendance of members.
The recording secretary read the
minutes of the previous meeting,
which were adopted. The following correspondence was then read
by the secrerary:
From the Deputy Minister of
Commerce, re experimental station.
From the Canadian Peace and
Arbitration Society, asking for signature of petition to establish universal peace.        j ,
From the Spokesman Review,
re advertising of land for sale.    '
From the National Apple Show,
Spokane, thanking for donation of
cup, and regretting the Board of
Trade did not anticipate showing
this year at Spokane.
From the Department of Trade
Commissioners, asking for names
of members, as a new system for
Canadian exports was being established.
The secretary reported that in
case of the last letter he had sent
the names referred to. He also
stated that so far he had had.no
reply from the Minister of Public
Works .with reference to the dredging of Mill Creek, but he ftacrneard
the subject"was before 'the''_city
council.        "i   _ * ' <r   ;
■ St T.Elliott reported that he had
been down to Penticton and had
interviewed the , foreman .of the
dredge, and had got particulars of
the cost and length of time the
work would take. He was under
the impression that it would take
in the neighborhood of two week's
to fix. 'Work,"however," could.not
start*until May.*  ,
When aeked it the present council cohterhplated taking any further
steps in the matter, Mayor DeHart
stated that the engineer would be
passing through in.a.few'days and
would give his advice. He did
not think, however, that the present
council would take any steps.
The petition and resolution from
the Canadian Peace and Arbitration Society was next taken up, and
upon a motion of Mr. Leckie, the
resolution was endorsed' and the
petition signed by. the member-
present.
An account from the Journal
Publishing Co., Idaho, for advertising sale of land by tender,was read
and recommended to be paid.
Mr. McTavish gave a statement
of the finances, stating that $200
was on hand, and about $560 due
from members. Some ,of this
amount could net be collected, but
it could be safely said there would
be $500 to the credit.
Mr. Leckie asked when "the !.G
P. R. slip was likely to be ready as
freight-cafs-were-being^heid
pending its completion
daily service -hould hot be cut off.
Mr. Kerr stated that every board J
of trade had agreed to take action
in the matter,  and  possibly, that <
action should be taken at once.''
It was decided that the secretary '
should write the  official at  Vancouver, and ask for a definite assur- ;
ance that the daily boat service will
be    continued"   throughout    .the,
winter.
'Mr. Kerr pointed oiit that   the
Great   Northern' .were ,t«C9ming -
very active in the southern part of ,
the Valley, and suggested teat' he",
should write to Mr. Hill,' and point,
out to him, the advisibility of .connecting   Oroville with"; Penticton.
This plan, he considered a feasible   *
one, if the resources ofthe country
were pointed out ^  *   ,
Mr. Leckie was  of the' opinion
thdt such an action would'possibly ' '•
stop the action of the V. 8c V. E.   ';
Line coming through and connect-, /'

It was mentioned that some of
the directors of the line were down
on that day, and Mr. Kilpatrick
was due to come on Monday next
some statement might possibly be
made by him. .
A discussion ensued on the
freight rates, it being pointed*, out
that freight could be placed in
Vancouver^ cheaper from eastern
points, than it ■ could v from here.
The rate ' from eastern. points' in
Saskatchewan and Alberta, was
70c, while from here it was 63c
Last year, as much as 72c. was
charged. This> excessive freight
rate was severely hampering the
output of manufacturers, and Mr.,
Fraser, of the Kelowna Canning
Co., was .complaining heavily."
Upon motion, it was agreed to ask
Mr. Fraser to meet the Transportation Committee and .-to .expound
his grievances, so that steps could
be taken to agitate a change in the

A municipal notice appears
this week-to the' effect that all
who desire to vote at the next
municipal elections, and persons who are not assessed property owners, should make the
usual statutory declaration before a police magistrate or J. P.'
not later than the 30th of this
month.
Last year this notice was issued, and owing to some misunderstanding several would-
be voters got their names missed off the list owing to the
fact that they did not make the
required declaration, and when
they found their names had
been omitted, generally raised
cain in the council chamber,
blaming, the city clerk for not
advertising the fact that their
names did not go on automat-
ically,
The advertisement was issued, and many notices were
published pointing out that it
, was time to get -on the. voters'
list, but with all that precaution
many claimed they knew nothing, about it.
If you have assessed property
in town you need not bother,
your name ■ goes on automatically, but if you have no assessed property-you can only get
on'by paying some municipal
tax or license. The payment
of a road tax or a special license
except a dog license, also makes
you eligible for the list, but the
declaration* must be made and
filed with the city clerk. This
has* to be1 done each year.
The fact that you did it last
year makes no difference.   If
■on the other hand you have
not paid a tax and yet want to
mat-'   nn     .!..»    wit-_»ra .   lift.    _w-»iir
cheapest plan is to pay a two
dollar road tax, and you will
be * free'to'vote at the next election after'you have made your
statutory declaration before a
magistrate.
With the roads around town
ankle deep in water and mud
it may seem a little paradoxical
to say that "Road-making,"
the subject of Major Shepherd's
lecture on Tuesday evening,
was dry! Yet so it must have
appeared to the majority of
people, as the attendance was
miserably small only, eight persons turning out to hear one
of Canada's leading authorities
on the problem. To the farmer the condition of the roads
means much, especially at the
present time when so much
hauling of fruit and other produce is going on. How to
better the roads and keep them
from becoming mere swamps
in rainy weather, is certainly
information that is worth some
trouble to acquire. At any
rate those who have the affairs
of the municipality in their
hands, or those who expect to
have in the future, might have
attended, with profit to themselves and the city.
There is. a good deal of kicking just now, by the way, about
the Government making roads
too wide. This, however, is
pure selfishness. It is, of course,
not i a nice experience to have
ten or fifteen feet cut off one's
property to make a 66 ft. road,
but to make narrower roads in
view of the ever-increasing
horse and motor traffic, and the
prospect of electric car lines
along the main roads in the
near future, would be shortsighted, and probably prove a
serious bar to progress.

The Government reports of fruit are
to hand, and it will be noticed that several
new fruit inspectors have been appointed
during the past month. The tobacco report is distinctly optimistic, and shows to
a certain extent that Kelowna is recognized
as having great possibilities before it, coming before any town in B.C. Other less
important cultures have been undertaken
in the neighborhood of Vernon by new
planters. The production of tobacco in
British Columbia is increasing perceptibly,
although it is ' still far from bearing any
proportion to the future which is in store
for it.
The September report of the Dairy Cold
Storage Commissioner indicates that the
weather and somewhat scanty rainfall in
certain districts in Ontario and Quebec
caused a shortage of milk supply during
the month of August. Recent conditions
hove been more favorable. Dairy stock
should meet the winter in better condition
than they did in 1907 or 1908.

Some Ontario fruit growers have met
with much success this season in shipping
early fruits and vegetables to Winnipeg
and other Western points. Better despatch
and more attention to icing have helped
considerably, but wideawake shippers are
now convinced that failure or partial
failure in the past was due
largely to the improper methods' which
were followed in stowing the packages in
the refrigerator cars. Experience has
shown plainly that provision must be made
for air circulation between the tiers of
boxes or baskets, so that cold air from the
ice bunker may fllow freely from the
lower opening and come into contact with
every package, to carry the heat which will
be absorbed back to the ice through the
upper inlet to the bunker provided for
that purpose.
' If the packages are piled into the car
without dunnage between the tiers, the air
cannot circulate properly, the fruit does
not receive the full benefit of the melting
ice, and the excessive dampness resulting
from the sluggish air eneourages mould,
and in the case of berries makes loss from
the pulping of the,fruit much more likely
to accur.
The success of the western shipments,
coupled with the shortage of the early
apple crop, haa resulted in very little advantage being taken so far of the facilities
afforded by the Department for the shipment of tender fruits to Great Britain in
specially,, reserved cold storage chambers
hn shipboard, It would appear that the
Northwestern market will be able to take
practically all the surplus of the early and
tender fruits produced in Ontario for some
time to come.
Major Shepherd spoke to an

A beef ring has been formed at
Salmon Arm, whereby one farmer

An interesting case was heard at
Penticton last Tuesday when Chief

Edmunds had never been sworn'in

case was dismissed.
News of the Prairie
S. G. Prentence, of Francis,
Saskatchewan, reports a yield of
700 bushels of Stanley wheat off
20 acres of land. The wheat will
grade No. 2 Northern, and is a good
sample. It matured a week earlier
than Red Fyfe under similar conditions.     <
Prairie fires are reported from
many districts, caused motly by
setting fire to stubble without
sufficient fire guard or men in attendance.
A strange case of accidental
shooting, comes from Bresaylor,
Saskatchewan. A man, named
Bert^Head, was out plowing, and
seeing some prairie chickens,
stopped his team to go after them
with a revolver, upon trying to load
he found the shells were too long
and proceeded to cut the end off,
trying to make some short cartridges
out of them. He snapped the revolver twice, but it would not wprk,
and turned the barrel towards his
face to see what was wrong. The
gun discharged, the bullet passing
through his right eye. It is thought
he may not. recover.       ,
A sad tale comes from Stettler,
Alberta. It appears that Mrs.
Glover saw a large prairie fire
coming towards her ranch, and at
once set out to a neighbor's house,
with her two children. Before they
could reach the house, they were
overtaken by the fire, and burned
to death. The husband was away
threshing at the time.
Wheat is practically all in and
thrashed. The returns in most
districts coming well up to the
average.

to 16th of October will be attended
with rain storms. The weather will

The Treatment to Which Crippled
Children Are Subjected—Bunches of
Garlic and Strings of Blue Beads as
Panaceas Against All Kinds of Ills.
A stone strikes some part of the body
of an oriental and Inflicts a wound
Tbe train of Ideas that this accident
would produce In tds mind'would run
something like this: Tbe stone Is tbe
cause of pain, tbe cause of the wound
It is tbe principal origin of the trouble
But the essence of every origin is bidden, secret and therefore sacred. The
stone becomes an awe Inspiring fetich
The. wound Is. neglected. The fetich
has to be propitiated. This simple Illustration Is borne out and supported
by everyday experience which medical men encounter In tbe east
Another Instance may be derived
from among the lower classes of the
Greek population of Constantinople. A
child fall6 and cuts his bead The
first thought of tbe parent Is to be surp
not to wash,and to bind up the wound,
still less to call medical assistance,
however grave the cut may turn out
to be. This Is always an afterthought,
which very often comes so late that
the help of a surgeon can prove of no
use.
The first thing the father or mother of
the Injured cbiid thinks of doing Is to
pour over the shoulder upon rise place
of the accident a libation of wine or
sugared water and to whisper inper-
forming this some mysterious formula
supposed to possess supernatural efficacy against every form of evil.
The Moslems are addicted to tbe
queerest practices for purposes of healing or alleviating bodily pain. A Turk,
for instance, in distress or suffering
from some disease, however severe
knows of no better remedy than to fix
a piece of bis dress, torn off with true
oriental equanimity, to an iron bar of
some saint's tomb or to drink water
from a tumbler Into which he has previously put a sheet of paper with writings from the Koran Sometimes lie
will take a Jar. the Interior of which
has been written all over with strange
formulae and signs. He will then fill
it with water, wait till these formulae
and signs have been thoroughly dissolved and drink the singular solution
with an absolute faith In its wonder
working efficacy.
Sheltered by the somber cypresses
of the great Mohammedan cemetery at
Scutari (the ancient Chrysopoiis on the
Asiatic coast of the Bosporus! there
stands In picturesque solitude tbe tomb
of a horse. Every Friday afternoon
Turkish mothers carry to that tomb
their crippled children to be submitted
by a select "khbdja" (priest) to an extraordinary course of treatment. These
children are dragged, with their diseased limbs dangling over the hillock,
from one end ot the tomb to tbe other
and:then back again In tbe same fash-
Ion; The occult Influence emanating
from this hillock Is supposed to be an
all efficient panacea.
It is not difficult to trace In this case
the crude, imperfect association ot
Ideas. The horse has long been considered an emblem of vigor, typifying,
as Ruskin says, "tbe flow and force
of life." Hence the belief ot the oriental, inherited, no doubt, from tbe
Greeks, in the till conquering virtue
and influence ot occult and mysterious
effluvia which are supposed to emanate
constantly from a horse's tomb.
The wearing of a necklace ot blue
beads or of garlic as a potent means
of keeping away disease or ot warding
off the evil eye is quite a universal
matter of sincere belief In the whole
,of Turkey.' This superstition is shared,
-tip la well known, hy thp lower classes
of many a country in civilized eastern
Europe. There, however, it is not so
universal and flagrant as in tbe orient.
There Is scarcely a bouse in the
Moslem, Greek and Armenian districts
of the population of Constantinople
which has not banging above Its entrance door a collection ot garlic and
scarcely a beast of toll which has not
attached to some part of it a string
of blue beads. Among tbe uneducated
it Is impossible to And an individual
who does not pin absolute faith to tbe
ail healing power of sucb charms,
especially of blue beads, which are
supposed to be an unfailing panacea
against every possible ML
Less general is the belief In the east
in the baleful Influence ot tbe planets
Saturn and Mars upon tbe constitution
of the human body, upon its four cardinal humors—blood, phlegm, yellow
bile and black bile. These planets are
considered by some orientals, especially in the far south, as the unmistakable causes of all sorts of ailments.

... j
Aw&y at the   back   of   a-long
frame building, which is almost
_ v6bscured from Bight by the large
'r pile of   monuments,   tiles,   pipes,
and   other     artitiles     of   cement
manufacture, not to   mention   the
;   numerous cords of stove wood, lies
• IlKe  working   plant   and" general
^paraphernalia of the Cement Block
y  Factoiyowned and run by Mr. W.
Haws-? *■ '< .'•■  .   ' -'''-•    :-y a •'"*"■
'   Thefroijt of the building stands
out bold, with open doprs   inviting,
anyone to enter, and here  we find
the general offices of the  concern;*
but we have not waited long, be-
, fore'the smiling face of the genial
" proprietor Welcomes   us   with   a
merrry, How do you do. After
- you -     have       explained;     your
mission    you       are    invited    to
come        into     the        workshop
where all the   moulds   are-made
and   the  general    manufacturing.
of cement tiles is carried on.  ;"
"So you want to see them made,"
-queries our host, V It is quite easy:
just sand, cement and water, three
to one, a little pounding \j}ij-fo'„ all
easy work, if you have your moulds
made fight."  ' i       i
", perhaps you have to be a'hjSje
caiefqlto.pil your form before you
pour the cement in, also,"of course,
you must not get your cement too
thick, or on-the other hand; too wet
btft -till, you soon get into the way
v    of that.   Oh yes! you are bound
to sift the sandi before using, and
to make a real .good[job of .i£ you
»„must gest fine sMid/There are also
different grades  of   cement.      In
making cement blocks, you must
have the very best."       "".'       .   .7
With-these few preliminary re
marks, our host-, made his^jw^to*
the engine room, where a''-■■small
Fairbanks-Morse    Engine   : stood;
ready to do all kinds of wprkc-in,
mixing' th'e.;cement and^punipmg
the water from the well.''-■'.
"This little boy does allthehard
.-   work," continued our host, "*in fact
it carries the water oyer to iny
private house, across the ros.d',7 as •
w«l as turning the cement mixer,
and pumping the necessary water
for mixing the cement.   I have-had
v some difficulty with him this morning ; it always will jip when I want ..„, „ „„ „
it to do some extra work. Let's try to arrive that day
it now, there are some'forms ready
to fill, and you may as well see how
it is done." With that, bur host
tried ta start the engine off, but
evidently, that day, the engine had
an attack of laziness, for it: refused
to work..'-."7:.'-'7'-''" 7''77 ■"■    _
('Have' .you enough gasoline? we
ventured to ask.■■-■■'
" Ohi yes," replied Mr. Haug, " I always
keep my'eye on the gasoline;tank. I am
not like Mr.——he was trying to get his
engine to go, for two hours, the other day;
and wheh the engineer arrived, he had
taken the engine, to pieces and put it together again'. It still refused tp work, and
it was only as a last resort that the gasoline
,uinjt was looked into, Jhere was found the
cause of all tjie worry, for it was empty—
not 1 always see that the tank is kept well
supplied with gasoline—ah I now she
goes.
With these words, ; the large square
mixing ipachine began to work, and a very
few minutes had elapsed before the engine
was stopped, and a batch' of moist material
poured out of the machine, ready for the
forms. After being carefully tested, as
regards moisture, etc.,_ the mass was
carried on a wheelbarrow to the forms, and
a small pdrtion pbured into the form,
previous to a severe pounding. Piece by
piece the form was filled up, and-well
pounded at intervals, until the top is finally
reached and levelled off. by, means of: a
trowel. The sides of the form ware theii;
taken off, arid revealed the stone moulded
into shape, with a: fine surface,; ready for
drying.     7'   7   7.;y •" '■:'••'   7,  ■"''.*'■■
" How long do they require to- dry ?
■/■> Mr. Haug went to a tap and turned on a
spiral spray, which sprinkled, water over a
pile of moulded blocks;' ready for the
school house and Presbyterian Church. .;,
"We have to keep them wet until they
are well-seasoned," was our host's • reply,
." then they finally dry off for use." , , ._
" And how do you make corner-stones )
"Exactly the same as the one 1 have just,
shown you, replied1 Mr. J-faug.- 7' Here _is
the frame-work of the stone I made for the
Presbyterian Church last week, and as you
see' the letters I 9 0 9 are engrave^ by
'means of figures fixed on the mould. Here
is a sister corner-stone; Mr. Haug showed
us a duplicate of the stone l«4d recently
at the church, explaining .that it had
not moulded outvto : his .satisfaction,7 "arid
had.-?tHerefdre, to be discarded; '""'.
"'Arid What do you/do with all discarded
stones; cari they be used again ?: Mr. Hauig
saidthey could riot.if it moulded wrong,
they were'all -waste. "See,",continued our
host, " here I have some patent; tiles, which
I am "going to use for a.sidewajk around
my house, if they, work well. .I'will put
them on the market";  '71. '        "
He then showed us some large irrigation
pipes,'. garden ' rollers," cdnuce*',./' stones,
monuments, pilfers, tie posts arid ;a* host of
other well made arid ."useful articles, but

interesting, and we were beginning^ to

Reports are to hand that Wainwright
Park, which\ was lecently stocked with
buffalo and elk from Montana, has been
swept, by a large prairie . fire. • All the
fencing was burned, letting loose, some
600 buffalo. Prairie fires have been raging
in the Wainright distnetfor some time past,
and the fire fighters had, j»een called out,
but were unable to'save the park. ' Scaled
by the fierce flames, the buffalo t6re loose,
travelling norih at a great speed, and it is
considered that'owing«to the'very Celling
description of the country it would be impossible, to coraal them. The loss to homesteaders is also very great, and a. movement is on .foot to get the government to
supply free seed duringthecomingseason,

Mine Explosion Causes Death.   ,
■ A disastrous coal mine explosion occurred at Extension; Vancouver * Island, last
week," whereby thirty hyes were lost.^^The
work of bringing up the bodies was a long-
and wearisome one; as. ".the portion
of the . mine where., the accident
happened was badly wrecked, the brattice
work being torn down. The rescuers, were,
moreover," badly hampered by gas. 7TJve
terrible explosion - is the' worst known In'
the district, and was ca,used by' fire damp.
Relief trains Were soon at the scene of the
disaster,*bringing' doctors and' .purses.
Their services"'were 'df no avail, however,
as each miner brought to. the surface iwas
dead.. After the explosion,' the timbers
forming the brattice, work caKght**'on '"fire

'' <   * .M    •-   i > „  *- ■ ~<
f News is to rhand of' excessively high
tides at St. John, N.B., and Halifax, N.S.,
which are causing much damage and loss
by the water"' making .inrouds upon the
land. A Halifax train coming up the embankment along the" Dorchester river had
a-narrow escape. 'The track at tjoth ends
df'it for a distance of 1.500 to 2.000 yards
were waah)ed( away ^.by a tidal wave/the
5 * firm * owing to the weight which was
on it. Traffic-was delayed about two
hours before a through service was again
established. The water has made holes in
the dykes, flooding the marshes, and depositing a layer'bf salt that is almost ruinous to the lands. The owners will have to
repair the dykes at once,'or the high'tides
next full moon will cover the same lands,
and complete their .ruin.

Tricking the  Hospitals.
Sometimes police ambulance-drivers
have to take people with assumed
complaints *■ to the hospitals, against
their better diagnosis.
Driver John Egan ,of Toronto had
two of these experiences last week,
the second being on Saturdav night,
when Edward Th waits hobbled into
W. J. Nichol's drugstore, 170 East
King street, calling for an ambulance
because he had slipped and broken
his leg. .
"Can you pay your hospital bill?"
asked Egan. - '
"No, I have no money. The city's
got to look after me."
"I thought so," murmured Egan as
his patjent used both limbs to climb
into the conveyance.
He is slated on the hospital reris-
ter as "an alcoholic." ■ 7
Earlier in the week P. C. Egan was
calted to a corner on Church street.

effect that a woman was dvine   lingered his flight. .    s. _   (

consumjption'and.cairicer, is,' forcibly pres-
ented'i'n "Alcohol aricf vtKe.Human'Body;"
one of the,latest scientific contributions to
literature dealing with ;the liquor question.
This important! work is /written by Sir
Victor Horsley and Dr. Mary Sturge. The
chapter in which the article mentioned
occurs, is written by Dr.Art'iurNewsholme
and is very clear and forcible. Here are
some instructive extracts from it:
"Consumption and cancer are two of
the most dreaded diseases, and they are
two of the most common causes of death.
Out of every 1,000 deaths in England. 78
are caused by consumption and at least 56
by cancer' Both these diseases a>e more
frequent among those who indulge in
alcoholic drinks, than among abstainers.
"Consumption is due to infection by a
microbe, tubercole bacillus, which is
discharged with the expectoration or spit
of some person suffering with the same
disease. The infection is commonly
inhaled by others in the form of a dust,
which consists lagrely of dried expectoration, resulting from careless spitting by
consumptives on floors of rooms, etc. But
why do those working in public houses
and those who frequent public ' houses
suffer much more from consumption than
others? •- .   \'*   '•'
"Doubtless     much of  the     mischief is
caused by direct infection at   the   bars of
public houses.    It is well known that, as a
rule,     frequent doses of     infection     are
required     before active     consumption is
produced.   To frequect a'public house is
one of the most certain ways of   receiving
these frequent and large doses of infection.
But     this is   not all that     indulgence   in
alcoholic drink  implies.   If   so   infection
might be avoided by   drinking   at   home.
It has been shown,,however,   that alcohol
lowers the resistance to infection; in other
words it opens the   door   to   infection; it
prepared the soil on which   the   seed   of
infection grows.    This is well known to be
true not only for consumption, but also for
such diseases as pneumonia, typhoid fever
erysipelas, blood-poisoning etc.    A   great
French physician, Dr. Brouardel, has  well
stated the matter in the following  -words:
"Alcoholism is in etfect the most powerful factor in the propagation of tuberculosis.
The mosf    vigorous man   who   becomes
alcoholic is without resistance before it.
"As with consumption, so with   cancer,
there'is a great excess of disease in persons
employed in those occupations in   which
alcoholic indulgence is common.   Accord^-
ing to     Registrar-Generals  t figures   the
same number as would furnish 44   deaths
from cancer among all occupied males'35
among clergymen, and 43 among 'doctors,
would furnish 63 deaths from cancer among
commercial travellers,   70 among " London
inn-keepers and 70 among brewers.   In an
investigation which 1 made as to the persons
insured in the United Kingdom' Temperance and General     Provident   Institution,
find that the same number   living   at   the
same ages which     gave 100 deaths   from
cancer among non-abstainers, only gave 71
deaths among the abstainers.   This is  not
suprising when we remember that one of
the factors producing cancer is the influence
of chronic irritation, and   alcohol   causes
irritation of the tissues with which it comes
into contact.

A suit for an estate in Walkcrville,

Labadie treasurer of the Hamilton Na-
tional Insurance Co.. of South Bend,

Hiram Walkeri.purchased the estate
from an uncle of Labadin, into whose
hands it had come from L'abadie's
grandfather. This transaction, according to the allegation \yhich will bo
made,1 was in no sense legal, as the
uncle only held tho estate in trtist and
had no right to dispose of it.
Labadie, who has been .ompowered
to act as attorney by the several heirs,
asserts that if the oase' is lost in Toronto it will be taken to the Chancery

customers.   It is the only banking room in
operation for the  exclusive t use of ladies,
and the fact that it has now been  open   a

evident that the innovation is' appreciated.
It has 600 depositors.   This unique   bank
is open from 9 a. m. to 6 p. m„ the hours

main, opposite the Royal, Hotel.
Aid. Elliott also reported that he
had seen the foreman of the dredging operations, now being cairraied
on at Penticton, and with a view to
ascertain the cost of operating, in
connection with the mouth of Mill
Creek, had obtained certain figures.
These showed that the estimated
cost of dredging would be $650 a
month. The foreman had estimated
that the work would take about a
week, while if the bed of the creek
was very soft, it would possibly
only take four or five days. He also
stated he would dump into a
wagon if it was required, to haul
the stuff away.
Aid. Elliott had estimated the
distance that required dredging, to
be about 300 feet, and at the same
time stated that the dredge would
not be able to start operations here
before next May. "
A suggestion was made that a
letter should be written to Mr.
Aylmer, of Kamloops, who was the
government authority on dredging,
and from whom could be obtained
an accurate estimate of the cost,
and also, - perhaps, make some
suggestions of means being pra
vided to stop the mouth of the
creek filling up again.
The foreman had suggested
piling it and filling with brush and
rock, and this plan seemed to be
the best in the eyes of the council
It was agreed to write to Mr,
Aylmer, and to ask him to stop over
when next passing and offer some
suggestions.
Plans of the foreshore, both for
the city and Mr. Aviss, were next taken
up, togethei with an agreement drawn up
by Mr. Burne. It was decided to leave the
matter in abeyance until the council had
made a visit as a whole to the site of the
lease' asked for by Mr. Aviss. It was
decided that the council should make a
visit to that part of the foreshore on the
following Wednesday, and come to a
decision with reference to the granting of
a lease.
Hidson attended with tenders for the
wiring of the'Court House and gaol. The
matter was referred to the Light committee.
A resolution was carried, that the-account of J. A. Bigger for work and material
in connection with the £. & A. Park, and
also the account of A.' W. Dalgleish, for
posts for the park be paid.
Hidson also pointed out that the side
walk on DeHart avenue, at the corner of
Richter street had been broken, by teams
driving over it. It was agreed to find out
the person who was responsible for the
breakage, and to hold them liable for the
repair.
Mr. G. C. Rose asked for permission to
put an addition on his wood shed. He did
not care for a corrugated iron roof, as it
made such a noise when rain or hail came
down upon it. He asked if some suggestion
could be made, whereby some addition
could be made of another fire-proof material
different to corrugated iron. The matter
was left in the hands of the building
inspector, to settle.
Aid. Bailey presented a motion, and
urged that steps should be taken 'at once
by the city, to obtain a private bill to control the irrigation ay8tern. A long discussion
ensued as to whether the city could legally
obtain a private bill, aud if the townspeople
would stand for the city obtaining the
control of the water.
Aid. Bailey said that it was neither the
water record nor the controlling of the
water in its present state, that was sought
after. TKe plan, was to get control over
tKe water, so that a pipe system could be
put in, and charged as a local improvement against tKe property. TKe expense
saved in tKe repairing of flumes and
ditches would be sufficient to. pay for tKe
extra cost, if tKe pipe system was put in as
a local improvement. He strongly advo
cated that the council should have tKe fact
advertised, that a private bill would be
applied for at the next meeting of the
House. TKe cost of advertising would be
tKe only expense in connection with it. and
would pave tKe way for next year's council, if they were inclined to apply for the
private bill.
Mr, G. C. Rose stated that the matter
had been gone into fully in previous years,
and he was under the impression that a
fee of $600 had to accompany the application, before tKe advertisement was
inserted, there, however, was some plan
whereby a rebate could be obtained.
Mayor DeHart suggested that as he was
going to Vernon in a few days, he sKould
take tKe matter up with Mr. Billings and
Mr. Price Ellison, and report to the council
at the meeting Keld on October 25th. It
was agreed that this would be" the best
way to deal with the matter. The following
motion was then made.
Cox-Elliott—Thatthe mayor be author,
ized to interview Mr. Billings and Mr. Price
Ellison, with reference to the necessary
steps to be taken by the city to obtain
control of irrigation water within tKe
Corporate limits.
TKe mayor wisKed to know Kow long it
would take to get in tKe 'estimates for
local improvements.
TKe city clerk stated that several bills
ftvere not in, and a lot of work had yet to
be' done.'
In reply to a question as to Kow long tKe
improvements would take to complete, tKe
city clerk said that it would be quite a time
before Ke could get out tKe report. Last
year Ke Kad quite a job to get all rendy
by tbe time tKe last council retired.
TKe question of calling tenders lor local
improvement debentures, was discussed
it being considered possible to estimate
within a few hundred dollars, the amount
of debentures it would be required to issue
and to get a rate.' TKe matter was, however, dropped.
The council then passed the motion of
adjournment, to meet again on Monday
next at 7;30.
