Meeting of City Council.
Dog Taxes Receive Attention -- Financial Statement to be
Ready January 5th • - Control of the City Irrigation'
Water Discussed.
The Council met last Monday to
conduct the business of the city, a
bare quorum, consisting of Mayor
-DeHart, Aldermen- Rowcliffe,* Cox
and Bailey," being present.
1 After the minutes of the previous
v,meeting were adopted the city clerk
read the following /correspondence
. The Couteau Power Co., asking
the council to meet a representative
of the company on December.21 st,
to^consider the construction of a
tramway, ^system through jhe
Okanagan. ,, "_-
r^The mayor considered this letter
x to be of a very important  nature
' and suggested that £ the council
should turn out in full force to the
meeting. It was agreed to meet at
10 o'clock on Tuesday, to .consider
this matter.
A letter from the Dominion
Securities Coeporation, re debentures, and also stating"that in future
their business would be conducted
through'their, Toronto office, was
ordered'tb be filed, as also 'was a
letter from the Brandt Knox & Co.,
" offering investment for the city's
-sinking fund ih Revelstoke Bonds.
' Mr. K. F..Oxley wished the, permission of the" council to place tie
posts outside,, his .premises. J^ie
city', clerk ~A stated that the letter
making the request had-been left
over for1' a meeting and that the
work was  now7cqmpleted. . The
- council agreed to the placing of the
posts"dutside Mr>.Oxley's premises.
" Aid. Cox wishe<jL to know if any
' steps were being taken to have the
lights ,in Ellis Street placed in
,' The mayor informed the council
that the? work-was 'under construction j and}' that, an arc - light
would be ' placed-' at -»J.  Fletcher's
\corner.7 ;Ald. Bailey stated that the
arc light would be placed in position as soon aa it was cleared from
«.     the customs.
k' A report was read from Police
Hidson to the effect that he had
been round collecting taxes and
had had an extra man on collecting^
road taxes/'1 Money to the amount
of $102 had been collected by
Chief Hidson.",, The city clerk
stated .that $54 of this was for dogs,
$J2 for road tax and $31 for the
night constable.
" The council considered that the
dog taxes were not coming in fast
enough,  to which the/ city clerk
. repIied-that_chi_f__Hidspn_Jiad__a
book fulLof, the names of people
who had promised to pay the tax
at a later period. It was considered
that the collecting of the taxes had
been left too long and that some
rule should be made whereby the
tax should be paid at once.
The by-law was looked up in
respect to the enforcing of the
dog tax, it being found that the
dogs not bearing' a tag could be
collected by the pound keeper and
kept for 72 hours.. If called for
the dog would be' -released upon
payment of $1 pound fee and the
expense incurred for feeding.
Aid. Rowcliffe suggested that the
pound keeper be told to collect the
dogs not bearing a tag after 28th
of December,:* and that a notice
should be "placed in the papers, to
that effect. It waB agreed to have
the notices issued and the pound
keeper advised to collect up the
'dogs and destroy or- sell same, if
not claimed within 72 hours.
" Mayor -DeHart stated that he
had seen Mr. Fisher and had asked
him to get the financial statement
out in detail, to which Mr. Fisher
replied that he would. He said it
would be finished on or before the
7th day of January next."
The city clerk reported upon the
light account, and stated that, the
total amount of the light bills sent
out this month were $1,062 of
which about $500 could be written
off for expenses. The water also
had a revenue of about $90. All
light bills had been paid, except
1M03 which was still owing.
The •, following accounts , were
referred to the finance committee,
to be paid if found correct:

Mayor DeHart made reference
to an application having been
made to some cigar makers employed by Mr. L. Holman, for their
road tax, if was mentioned that
these men had not come to. town
until recently and that they did not
consider *his' year's tax was^due.
It was agreed that no steps should
be made ,to collect the', amount. -
Mention was made of the building belonging to Mr. W. Haug
which was' being turned into a
skating-rink for the winter. .  --   .-
Aid. Cox reported that the procedures^ far met with his approval
but-that a strict watch should be
kept on the building sor that alterations should' not be^made that
would make the building unsafe.-
" The city clerk stated that Mr. F.
M. Buckland had requested him"to
draw .the attention of the council
to the fact the irrigation ditch-on
the south side of Glenn Ave., had
been destroyed by the construction
of .a" cement sidewalk/
The_p,aypr replied that,, he,, had
heard that it was'the'intention' of
the residents on(the north' side' of
Glenn Ave. to run the water down
on that side of the street; if 'they
failed to make the change the ditch
would be repaired by the council.
Aid. Cox asked if the .city had
any control over persons taking
sand from the shore of the'lake?
and referred to- some which was
being taken away, from the other
side of the mouth of Mill Creek. It
was considered that sand was always washing up „at that point and
that there was no need to take
steps to stop the' procedure.
Aid. Rowcliffe remarked - upon
the advisability of petitioning for a
private bill for the. purpose of
controlling the irrigation water
within the city limits.
Aid. Bailey said he had been
informed by the Hon. Price Ellison
that the Government is willing to
amend their present water act and
to thereby give the city control of
the water ~ within its, corporate

Civic elections are again approaching, and matters of vital interest to the town and district will
have to be considered during the
comming year, and a strong business-like council is of the utmost
importance. Up to the present
very few names have been mentioned, but we understand that D.
W. Sutherland ,is-coming out for
mayor, and J. W. Jones is urged to
stand W the North ward. It is
very necessary that the electors
take a live interest in the selection
of city representatives for 1910.

Prepared by the able hands of
Mr. Legge-Willis, and supplemented with a strong caste, " Oh Susannah," a farce by Marc Arrlbienr,
was produced at the Opera House
last .Thursday. The audience,
which was only a medium one, but
very enthusiastic were not backward
in showing their appreciation of
the performance, by long and loud
applause at the fall of the curtain.
The scenery, representing doctors
consulting room in Pimlico, was
very well got up, and reflected
great credit on the local scenic
artists. •. **»   '    '
The principal male part, taken
by Mr. Legge-Willis, was a fine
study > and could hot have ~ been
placed in better hands. The professional air which marks' 'his
entrance is noticed gra'dually decreasing as the plot .reveals, until
at the-<Iatter part of the* play he
tries to, pull himself together, only
to find out that his professional air;
will not comeback to him. as long
as he is wearing pajamas. , -"
"""The part ofthe irate lawyer was
.well portrayed by Mr. J. F. Burne,
who worked his part to perfection
and kept the audience in fits of
laughter all the time he was on the
Mr. R. C. Reed took the part of
tKe policeman—or rather page boy
in a free-and-easy manner. He,
however, looked too old for the
part, which served as a drawback,
for.it appeared as though he did
not belong to the play, and only
came on as a stop gap. What he
had to 'do was certainly a first-class
bit of acting, but a few applications
of re-juyenating paint would have
added greatly to the part he had to
portray. Messrs. Lynn Harvey and
T. Bevan. played the, part of the
gushing .admirers .of Mr. Burne's
precious' jewels in a very free
manner, and both did justice to
their k part' The precious jewels
being well acted by Misses Peggy
Harvey and Gertrude-Hudson;	
To come to the first piece of
acting of the evening, the part of
Aurora, taken by Mrs. Legge-Willis
was a masterpiece. Her acting has
always been admired by the people
of Kelowna, but where' admiration
was expressed 'over her recently
achieved, successes, a double dose
of praise was coming to her when
Bhe ended her performance last
Thursday. Foregoing her usually
refined parts she transformed herself into the ordinary common
boarding house slavey and gave a
performance which the usual run
of actresses would find hard to
The part of the Landlady was
vary ably filled by Mrs. D. W.
Crowley, while the. part of Flora,
the doctor's bride, who was married
secretly, and could not make out
why her husband was treating her
in such an off hand way, was carefully .prepared at the hands of Miss
E. Collett.1'
The part of Susannah, Dr. Shep-
pard's old'aunt could not have
fallen into better hands than Mr. S.
Wrijjht, and although the program
states the part as being taken by
Miss Stanley, neither make-up
skirta. nor nom de plume could
hide the real identity of the person.
The part was a hard onei and Mr.
Wright made good work of it.
The music during the evening
was given by the Kelowna Orchestra, and vas of a class that went
hand in hand with the production,
which without doubt could be
called the best ever produced in

asking that the renewal of the
licence should not be granted, a
request which-brought up a lengthy
'discussion between Mr! R. B. Kerr,
solicitor for the'license holder and
the commissioners.
..The following resolutions were
•p'assed by the board, the mayor
remarking that there was nothing
against the character of the new
proprietors: '    "
"That the application of J. E.

,A very interesting and happy
event took place on Wednesday
morning at 11 o'clock, at West-
holme Farm, Vernon Road, the
residence of Mr. and Mrs. George
Wheelan. This was the marriage
of their daughter, Miss Margaret

A meeting of the council was
held on Tuesday morning last, with
the object of meeting Messrs. Percy
and Warren, two gentlemen who
are interested in the tramway
project which has filled Jthe minds
of the people of the Okanagan for
Mayor DeHart, in opening the
proceedings explained^to the aldermen, (all of whom were present
with the exception of Aid. Cox,)
that the object of the meeting was
to discuss the power and tramway
question, and to listen to the
proposition, which Mr. Warren has
to put before the council. He then
called upon Mr. Warren to speak.
,tMr. Warren, representing the
Coteau Power Co., stated/that he
had come before the council to
ask them to express an opinion,
and to endorse the project of tramways through the Okanagan Valley.
The present nieeting.-he said, was
only for preliminary discussion,
and that it was not in any, way desired to get materials signed of a
binding nature. The proposal he
had to .put before council was one
of developing the Shuswap Falls
andf therecly transmfttmg^ower
through the Okanagan -Valley, be-
tweeiuthe towns of Enderby, ;,and
Penticton. If the system was carried-
through it would mean, the-jexpen"
ditureAof about $2,000,000;vbut
before'"this sum was raised it7was
'desjred vto  get - some _ statements
vyould'.bVbenefited by the scheme,'
(that they would support the project.
* The Coteau^ Power Co. were
anticipating bringing power from
Shuswap^ FaHs, transmitting it here
and supplyinVelectric light to the
town' arid country, electricity for
power, and also" to establish a .line
of tramways runnirifc from Kelowna
out into the country.
The districts in the Okanagan
Valley were rapidly growing up,
and soon the matter of transportation would be a great difficulty.
When the large orchards came into bearing there^ would not be
enough horses to~cope with the
transportation, and there would be
more produce than could be
handled. The projected tramways
relieve all this, as the-, tramway
company would take the cars from
the GP.R. Co., and deliver them to
the place where the freight was to
be collected, where they could be
filled and returned ready for ship*
ment. The system was Supposed
to be in shape by 1911, but thisTie
considered was an early date to
expect the system complete. He,
however, thought that all would
be in shape to handle the crop of
1912. ,   '
In reply to a query as to whether
the lines would connect up with
others, Mr. Warren stated that the
present idea was,, to have several
feeders running out of Kelowna
and other towns in the valley.
These feeders would handle the
freight to the nearest shipping
point, but there would not be a
direct line at present linking up the
different towns.
He further stated that his visit
was only to find out how the people
felt in respect to haying a tramway
as it could be easily seen that .it
would be useless to sturt such a
project if the people did not wish
to support it. He produced a
motion passed by the Summerland
municipality promising support,
and asked the council if they
would give him a similar motion
so that he could place the same
before the financiers when it was
desired to float bonds. The company would require the council to
submit a franchise by-law to the
people. The very fact that the
council were asked to endorse the
company's plans left them free to
turn the franchise agreement down
if-they did not like the terms of it.
The agreement would be presented
within 90 days time.
When asked about rates, Mr.
Warren said he could not go fully
into the rate question at present as
it would be useless making a rash"
promise of a cut down rate. , He .
however considered that the rate/
would be reduced from what is'.

MrTferry was then7w_ed~toaddreirth«r
meeting.   He said that Mr. Warren was a
practical man and knew all about the generating of power.   He' did 'not think he
could  enlarge  upon  that gentleman's remarks.   He was confident that in supporting a project like the present they were
helping to develope the valley.   The great
thing in the whole concern was that it had
local men at the bacjc of it, Mr. Ricardo,'  '"
Mr.-McAllister, and Mr. Billings, amonifet~- ,v
others, people who  had interests in the >'
valley, and were desirous of seeing it make', .

Some few weeks ago the
"Fruit-grower," a new magazine
in the interests of fruit culture
conducted by Maxwell Smith,
the former provincial fruit inspector, published an article
advocating the establishment
of a Canadian national fruit
show on similar lines to the
one which has proved so successful al Spokane. This suggestion has been taken up very
seriously by fruit-growers and
show organizers throughout the
province, and the idea seems
not only to have met with approval but to have arroused a
considerable amount of enthusiasm.
The - Spokane show was
started very largely as an advertising scheme, and according
to reports, has proved a very
satisfactory one. It has undoubtedly done much to advertise the fruit districts of the
States, and it is felt, and not
without reason, that, considering the enormous importance
which the fruit industry has
attained in Canada, a great
exhibition would prove not
only a - valuable educational
influence for those engaged in
the industry, put a - powerful
inducement to prospective

The Literaiy Society held its
weekly meeting in the school-house
Friday last, when Mr. Geo Stirling,
of Dry Valley, gave a talk on
Socialism, the subject being fieely
discussed afterwards. Mr. Stirling
who was intensely earnest in hi&
subject, outlined the great and degrading poverty of the large cities,
his 'remarks being based upon
actual experience, he having been
engaged in mission work in the
city of Liverpool some yeais ago.
He said that Socialism claimed to
be a remedy for all this, and would
give to the working man the full
benefit of his toil instead of the
greater part of it going to mike
the rich richer. Touching upon
the religious aspect ofthe question
Mr. Stirling said that the chuiclic-
had failed dismally in this woik
amongst the poor, and that Christianity offered no solution to the
problem., Some veiy waim discussion then took place, getting so
interesting that by common consent the meeting was prolonged
to a late hour. No meeting is
arranged for during the Chnstmas

"Beside the Bonny Briar Bush."
. i •'       -. ■  ■
• i   In Ian McLaren beautitiful story " The
Bjnny Briar Bush,'' which comeaVhere on
January 4th, theatre goers are to be entertained . with-a  charming  play,in which
-Scotch life is portrayed with a simplicity
of  treatment  together  with  a delightful
combination of dramatic intensity, and rich
humor such as is rarely found in the latter
clay performances.    McLaren's, <. tales , of
Scotch  folk" have  proven to be amongst
the  moat  successful  book dramatizations
.*" now being used' for stage purposes. < The
role^ of the. old* Scotch "elders  Lachlan
Campbell, has been pronounced by prominent critics a  maateipiecef .of character

history of th* drama. „   -
Another accident occurred last
week, when Mr. G. Whitaker and
Mr. Maxwell were thrown out of
their buggy, the wheels passing
over Mr. Maxwell's ankle, causing
him considerable pain. On the
following day Mr. Whitaker, while
loading some pats on his wagon,
slipped and caught his leg between
the wagon box and the wheel. The
shock and pain rendered him unconscious for a short time, and he
is now laid up with a severely
twisted knee.
The old school house has at last
been moved, and is now placed
close to the school.
Mrs. Bond is recovering from a
severe attack of Jaundice.
• The Chrismas Tree and entertainment at the school house'on
Monday evening; was a great
success, and spoke well .for the
children by. their teacher, Miss
Fullerton. Chnstmas is an exciting
time for children, especially when
waiting for a visit from Old Santa,
but they were very orderly and well
disciplined on Monday night. To
comment on the programme would
take altogether too much space, so
wc present it entire below. Father
Christmas, (we must not say who
it was,) was capital and so realistic.
Hisjolly humor and funny jokcb
kept the school in a roar. •

The earliest date about which there
can be no dispute al which placing

is based the popul.ir notion that playing cards weie invented for the amusement of a crazy French Uin_ Critics

„to most* of our ships nis dtitles'are
limited -to mnlslii}; neoessary -alterations Inthe uniforms whlcb'nre issued'
to1 the members of the crew Many
enlisted men own sewing machines',
upon .which they do repair work, and
they also do odd Jobs for officers, such
as pressing aud cleaning'- A bamly
man with'the needle can also make a
handsome sum by doing fancy work
Some of the most delicate embroidery
work has been done byxsallormen.
The ship's*barber also makes a comfortable living in addition to bis regu"
lar pay. and the distribution of prize*
at target practice enriches the coffers
of the gun crew by n considerable
Bum. Men'who are detailed to duty
on board submarine boats are allowed,
an additional $5 a month and besides"
$1 a day for every day the boat Is
submerged. " Bluejackets detailed as
signalmen, as cockRwalnR. of power
boats or In charge of holds are, allowed extra pay A crew messman re
celves $5*a monih for performing that
Bomewhat, menial function, and'tbe
"man who is not ashamed to" "take ln;
washing', enn easily double his navy
pay. Every bluejacket Is expected to'
perform the laundering himself, but

Engine Hung Ocer Precipice.
A C.P.R. freight had a close call near
Shields. A rockslide had torn up part of
the track near the high bridge there and
the engine left the track and was stopped
in such a position that it was hanging over
a sheer drop of over one thousand feet.
The trains had to transfer twice while the
damage was being repaired and the engine
hauled from its dangerous position.
May Form Insurance Company.
.Owing to the failure of the western
underwriters to grant a reduction in the_
insurance rate at Manitou, Man , despite
the fact that the town is well equipped
with adequate fire protection, prominent
citizens are talking of establishing a mutual
fire insurance ..company, in which the
entire town will carry their own insurance.
The plan will follow the lines of^ the big
companies which carry their own insurance.
Carefurestimates show a reduction of 25
per cent over present rates, it is claimed.
The local secretary.of the underwriters'
board says Manitou is given-the same
treatment accorded other towns of equal

recently, and for a while there was an
exciting time in ,the vicinity of the post
office. The city officials have for sorrte
been trying to have the temporary building
next to the King's hotel, in which.the post
office "has been located since fewrweels^
after the big fire last year, moved back to
the line of the other buildings on the street,
and to have the approach improved so
that the public could have better access to
the office. The postmaster did not. move
in the matter as the city desired. The
chief of Pohce.'R. Starke, and Chief Mc
Dougftll of the^ fire department appeared
on thescene and began to cut away the
tront of the building. The police kept at
their task until the whole front of the little
building waa cut away, rendering the office

^«W. -. The Orchard City Record.
Thursday,: Dec. 23
-•Tifiprinled'from the Report of the Experimental
Farm, Ottawa.
ROOT-KILLING (contined). — At the
Central Experimental Farm, Ottawa, many
trees were root-killed in the winter of
1895-6, a winter when there was little snow.
At that time cover crops were not used to
- any extent, and the soil of the farm was
bare. Since that time great care has been
taken to have a cover crop in the orchard
before winter sets in. 1 his cover crop in
itself protects the roots of the trees from
drying out and helps to hold the snow
for further protection. While the roots of
trees in sod are protected by this sod and
may not be killed when those under cultivation are, it may happen that in some
casestthe soil is so dry under the sod that
if there is no snow the roots may yet be
killed. The mulching of the ground about
trees with strew or manure will also protects the roots from injury. Another reason why we have not been troubled with
root-killing during the the past twelve
years at Ottawa is that practically all our
grafted trees have since that time been
..grafted on crab apple roots, not on Pyrus
baccata, although some are on this stock,
but on the seedling of Martha, Transcendent, and other cultivated varieties. The
apple seedlings used by nurserymen for
stocks vary much in hardiness. Every
tree probably differs more or less, and
some are undoubtedly quite tender. The
result is that varieties otherwise hardy,
when grafted on these roots, fail. Seedlings of the crab apple are much more
likely to be hardy, and we believe if some
nurseryman would make a speciality of
growing the apples suitable for the colder
parts of Ontario and the province of Quebec on crab apple stocks, he would in time
sell a large, number of these trees. The
advantage of crab apple roots has been
very marked in the Northwestern states
where trees on ordinary apple stocks have
been killed out, while those on crab roots
were uninjured.
BARK-SPLITTING—This is an injury
which usually occurs on young trees. It
is duj to the expansion caused by frost
when trees are in a very succulent condition. It occurs when trees have grown
late in the fall, and there is a sudden low
drop in temperature. It will occur when
trees have grown late and there is a heavy
fall of snow before the ground freezes.
The soft snow appears to soften the bark
of the tree, and when the temperature
drops suddenly the moisture under or in
the bark expands and loosens the bark
from  the  tree  or  kills the cambium.   In
Nova Scotia, the : Gravenstein and other
apples are affected with what is known
there as "crown rot," which apparently
destroys the bark about the tree near the
ground. From what we can learn of this
injury, which accurs mostly in well cultivated orchards and in moist grounds, we
believe that the Gravenstein grows too
late and is subjected to the conditions just
referred to, namely, of being too full of
sap. Traces of disease have been found
at these injured parts, but we believe that
the disease is secondary rather than the
principal cause, though wc have not had
an opportunity to study the injury there.
Bark-splitting can he prevented to a large
extent by having the wood of the trees
well ripened before the winter sets in, and
by stopping cultivation in good time.
When young trees are injured by bark
splitting, they may be saved if not too
badly hurt, by covering the injured part
with grafting wax.
TRUNK - SPLITTING.—Trunk-sp'iiting,
while not a common injury in orchards, is
not rare. It was long thought lo be due
to the expansion of trees which had
been "hide-bound." We do not believe
there is such a thing as a hide-bound tree.
While so far as is known no experiments
have been tried to determine the cause of
trunk-splitting, yet several theories have
been advanced, the best one being that the
splitting is due to -a sudden loweiing of
temperatuie, which cools the outside lajers
of wood in the trunk, making a considerable difference in temperature between the
outer and inner layers, caus ng the former
to contract. A clearer example is the
cracking of ice when there is a sudden
fall of temperature, due to the contraction
caused by the upper layers of ice coming
into contact with the cold air. It is trees
which have made late growth ar.d are well
charged with sap that are usually affected,
hence thorough ripening of the wood is
necessary to prevent this injury also.
SUNSCALD —The injury to apple trees
known as sunscald is one of the most
serious hindrances to successful apple
culture, particularly in the northern and
eastern parts of Ontario and the piovince
of Quebec. Newly planted or young trees
are, as a rule, more«seriously affected by it
than older ones. The unhealthy appearance
of the bark on the south and southwestern
sides of the trunk of the tree and on the
larger branches is the first indication of
this injury. Afterwards the bark and
wood dry up and fall away. Trees are
often so badly affected that they die. Sun-
scald occurs during the latter part of win-

may  be   prevented   to   a large extent  by
only planting trees which are headed low,
thus exposing but a short trunk to the t&fs

trees   somewhat   to   the  southwc.t when

Is there a blind pig in town ?.   If
there is not, someone is  certainly
generous with fire-water.    A number, of men came   into town   on
Tuesday last from the bush where
they had been working for some
weeks .previous,  and   before they
had been in town two hours they
were all more or less the worse ior
liquor,  and by evening they were
all too drunk to be civil.    The old
theory has been that the liquor was
secured   on    board   'one   of   the
steamboats,    but  in   the  case- on
hand   the  theory  is  untenable as
the men in question were among
the mountains during the time that
the boats were at the town wharf,
and   apparently, (on   arriving   at
Summerland, they knew just where
to go so as not to waste a minute
before  loading  up. ■ There are a
gceat^many ^people in the district
who have been talking and working for ten.perance for a considerable length of time  and   it  would
be   a   good   thing   to   let* words
crystalize  into    actions; take - the
bull by the horns, and find out just
where  the  trouble  lies.     Several
theories'might be advanced'as to
the source of suppy, one of them
along the line suggested by Longfellow : " And things are not 'what
they seem."     Theory,   however, is
insufficient to meet the case, and a
magistrate's search warrant and a
hunting party might be the means
of bringing a number of surprises
to light.  Summerland, in the recent
election declared strongly in favor
of local option.and there are doubt-
jess some in"the district who are will
ing to go,a step, further and  assist
in doing _rlittle cleaning up.

To cure'rheumatism It Is necessary;
to rid. tbe system of .the excess of arte

.even more Important than" the use of
drugs, though In very severe cases tbe
latter are not'to be despised In con-
Junction with the .dieting that Is abso-,
Iutely esseutlal.
Tbe Massachusetts, General hospital
w of Boston allows the following diet for
its . rheuma'tlc   patients:   Graham   or
? brown bread, white bread (limited to
one-half^ slice daily), corn, rice, milk,
"eggs, flour, puddings, crackers, beans,

potatoes, tomatoes and asparagus, rhubarb, fresb (flsb, butter, cheese, buttermilk,'" cream, alkaline waters and
toast.    Avoid   red   meats,  starch or

The sensible use of water both-Internally and externally plays a large
part In tbe prevention or cure of rheumatism. One or two glasses, either
hot or cold, taken before .breakfast
every morning Is excellent to start the
organs of digestion for tbe day, and
at least one glass should be taken between meals. Often tbe plain water
will be enough to move a slightly constipated person, but If not a mild medicated, water may be taken instead. It

a letter and h.e on the back. As for
postal cards, imagine asking for one

But it Is in n Moluinmedan country
that an American mind needs readjustment. Up woke one morning tn
Constantinople and found our calendar

us to walk around tbe hundreds of

A Bird Whose Ways Are Most Difficult
to Observe.
Ferbaps there is nothing in nature
more difficult to observe than tbe ways
ot tbe kingfisher. Any one may see
bim glancing down midstream or making bis snddeD arrow flight from bank
to bank under the bright June sunshine, but to track him down to bis secret fishing' place and wateb bim at
work is a vastly more difficult thing,
_ou come1 from'the gold clad meadows into tbe shady river path as into
a cathedral aisle. - Tbe willows crowd
down to tbe water's edge. In the green
reeds a sedge bird is frPtting There
is a -low .twittering soug of. nestlings
all round you. „And now, in tbVsba-"
diest deep of the willow wood, a shrill,
piping note cuts the silence, a flash of
emerald passes, a kingbsbpq'uns gone
by.on his way to bis favorite pool. _
A common notion is that tie sits perfectly still on some branch overhanging the .water, n picture Qf crafty vigil-
ance. But this is*rarely,If ever the,
case. , The truth is, says,a writer In
the London Chronicle, tbat. tbe kingfisher, like the'master be,ls. sets about
bis work with aif easy'surety, almost
a nonchalance. - Peering ,down upon
bim warily through'the, screen bf
branches you would judge tlipt the last
.tbing in the woild he was thinking
about was the gliding browu "water be-

N percb,' making' his vivid' 'green and
'turquoise and amber plumage seintlk

sunlight that bas found- him but.

A successful bazaar was held
last Thursday in tr_e.Rowcliffe Hall,
a number of- persons patronizing
the stalls during the'-day. " The
bazaar was prepared under 'the
auspices of the Young Ladies'
Hospital Aid, and "-as successful
financially. The opening ceremony was performed by Mr. T. W.
Stirling, who, in praising the work
of the Young Ladies' Hospital Aid,
said that had it notH)een for them,
he did not think the hospital would
have been furnished yet. He also
thanked, 0n behalf of the Ladies'
AidfMre. Boyce, who had given
the ladies the use of a room for
their meetings and otherwise helped along the affair. " .   .
The May Roberts Gillard, Co.
gave a good performance on Saturday night to a small audience. The
play/"Madam^Satan," was well
worth a visit, and' it is to;r|^e regretted that more^did not "turn out
to witness it.' It was also unfortunate
that the play followed so close to
the Musical and Dramatic Society's
production, this fact, no doubt,
having a lot to do iTwith the 'small
attendance.-    /
Skates got busy' again last Saturday, a number going out to indulge
in a game of hockey.' According
to reports, it was good going.
Rev. Welsh will start a series of
discourses upon Great Men "and
their Religion, next Sunday, taking
as his first subject, "~Mr. Gladstone,
the GieatesX English Commoner."
Christmas week will be the'occasion
of the Gladstone Centennial, and
will be a fitting opportunity for a
start of this discussion. '   t   .
Hank Munroe received 'his new
