**" The usual meeting of the City
Council was held last Monday,' the
Mayor and a full attendance of
aldermen being present. ,
"The"'minutes "'of" the' previous
meeting having' been read and
adopted/the clerk read the following correspondence: \ .' <"*"',,
- From1'1 the -Chief -^Inspector of
Boilers,'with reference to the work
nf straightening the shaft; and also
the way the' plant1'was installed.
"His letter mentioned that a change
in.the installation was-■made by a
local .civil -engineer,: against the
wish'of the'Canadianx Fairbanks
Co., and that company did notcon-
sider themselves -responsible' for
fault in the construction. - , r \
. TW'city clerk \vas asked .if' any
correspondence had been received
' with-reference'to the matter, • but
replied in thcnegative.
" It was agreed to write - the Can.

date -of*-;their'letter, the 'mayor
stating that he was of the;.opinion
that 'some alteration, was; made in

-In the farmer case the reply was

-     that the meter should be taken out
as there was a shortage   at'the
present time"-"' ■       '        " /
- A" Ald.^Ball^was'of the opinion
,' that the 'costof putting up" a- new
.' meter was $2.50, and considered it
■' i   very high when the wires were all
** ready to receive it. , The city clerk
however, informed "the council that
$ I was the fee charged for replacing a metet—a sum considered
small enough to admit any person
' not using^heiriight to-let it gu-ancr
have itrrein8talled "when again re
the finance committee to deal with
as previous to payment some steps
shold be taken to have the plant
properly inspected.
Aid. Bailey stated that Mr. Smith
would be coming down soon and
there '.were several things to point
out to him. The inciter had been
working badly since the start and
he~ would not be in favour of
accepting - the account until'this
was put right. i; .    -,
Aid." -Ball also reminded the
council thatthe inspectors' official
report was* not to hand,*- and jhat
perhaps it would be better to write
the Fairbanks people, stating there
was trouble with' the inditer, and
that it would have to, be put right
before the final test was made. It
was agreed to keep the account in
abeyance until some definite agreement was made and the plant was
in good running order."

'some -'difficulty had been experi-
encd ih checking the light account
and going through the usual formalities before the 15th of the month
and the C. P. R. were aoking for. a
special concession or extension in
order get their discount.       A
The aldermen considered that
for such a small amount, the agent,
Clarke, ^shciuld have enough authority * to pay ;it .and that no special
^'concession should be granted."
Aid. Elliott was satisfied that the
C. P. R. were, bad payers anyway,
and that a long time elapsed from
the time a debt was incurred and
the time it was paid.      -    • A    .

that if the C. FJ.R.^could not pay
their bills up to date, they should
go back to coal oil.

y, , Aid. Ball was of the opinion that
an auditor should be appointed
soon so that he", could start work
before the statements of accounts
wjsre*-" issued, andi suggested that
tenders should be called." A motion
was made > to -that" effect and
carried, tenders to . be in by Monday, December 13th.'
Mayor DeHart remarked on the
two resignations of alermen Bailey
and Rowclitfe that were handed in
at last meeting and held over. * He
asked'those aldermen if they wished to' withdraw their resignations
or whether they were to be left
Aid. Bailey said he had had conversations with people" during the
week, and had ascertained that the
turning down of By-law No. 66
was the work, of six people and
was not representative of the feeling of. the community at large.
i Aid.—R©wc!iff___8poke in   the
same strain and both aldermen
agreed to withdraw their resignations.
' The mayor, in remarking upon
our headline, " The Council Runs
Accaihst a Snag," said his opinion
was that the people had run against
a snag, when the .cost of issuing
and voting on a fresh by-law were
taken into consideration.
Aid. Rowcliffe was of the opinion
that the people should pay their
honea't debts, and that the by-law
should not have been turned down.
The mayor was under the impression that the people considered
the by-law should have been made
out and voted on before the power
house was're-built "If that had
been done" remarked the mayor,
" we should have had oui names
put up "for all time, considering
that the die at' Raymer's building
which might have swept the city,
occurred almost directly after the
power house was-put up.
. Aid, Cbxwished to knowif something could not begone to' collect
the dog tax, and suggested thatthe
Police Commissioners should insist
on the policeman collecting them
at once. >'
The mayor said that Chief Hidson had asked for a night constable
BOithat',he could devote more time
to the collection of taxes, he, however'had had a complicated case
in hand and would now be able to
get after'the taxes.   '
Aid. Bailey said he had heard
that some complaints were levied
against tho night constable employ
ed by the city, and possibly he.
would have to be taken off at the
end of the month. It was, however,
mentioned that no complaints had
been received in .the council
chamber. ,      A "'
Aid. Rowcliffe reported that Mr.
Russell had asked for a telephone
connecting his rooms in the Cox*
Block with , the power house," so
that he could be communicated'
with if anything went wrong with;
the plant when he was away- -from^
the power house off duty. - The
matter was left to the Light Committee to see Mr. Millie with refer-,
ence to the installation and to
make arrangements.    '
Aid. Cox asked if the committee
appointed to look into the" fire
airangements at the Lake * View
Hotel were ready with any report.,
'- Aid. Elliott stated that the cleiJc
had been instructed lo write, to the
owner, Mrs. Newson, and-Mr. Bows
had been again approached, with}
the result that now the' fire applj^'
vances have been nearly all put* up(
The proprietor was givenjjntil the
1st of December-to malce a start,
the work to be completed* within
fourteen days aftei that date*:' J&3&
k Aid. Ball brought up the~matfef
of insurance on the power - hovuse
and plant, and considered it was"
best to take out a policy for' the
whoie of the plant, and cover < as
much of the building as was, likely
to be lost if a fire occurred.-; He
thought the boilers should'also be
insured. , *'   »7 * ,-."■-.' h "• t
"Aid. Rowcliffe "thought*"-there
was no need to insure the, boilers,
as they were practically safe from
loss; .while Aid. Elliott considered
the bnilding was safe without in-
surance. _, - V-£--_
- -Aid. Ball was of-the opinidn'that
the buijding should be coveredlfor
the-roof and floor 'and ''all* th'at
was likely io burn," should ""a fire
start.'' The'.outlay! he stated would,
not, be very great, and- it was as
well to be'on'the safe side."     -
- Aid. Bailey waif in favour,~of a
full insurance on any part likely to
catch on fire, but did*not think the
council should spend another cent
afterthe "people had plainly shown
how.adverse they were- to the
price already paid for the power
house. - «■.- ,  -
- Aid. Elliott also considered the
matter of insurance should > be left
over. At this juncture the matter
was dropped.- _
" Aid. Rowcliffe reported that he
had i looked' into Mr. Raymer's.
account for additional workon the.
po>ver House and'-' had * made inquiries, but could notfind a carpenter willing to go over' the' building
and criticise the work already done.
He stated that what work was done
was ordered by the - staff at ,the
power house and not by the city
council. He suggested a payment
should be offered Mr. Raymer.
way to deal with the matter was to
pay the .account, or else promise to
pay it. It was mentioned that the
payment would possibly be left to
the next council.
Aid. Ball remarked on the theatre
license and collection, stating that
the present manager was liable for
3 months and 'that the .amount
from Mr. Raymer could be secured
Mayor DeHa-i: wished for a motion authorizing the transferring of
.the money spent for school purpose
to the general account.
By-laws Nos, 67 and 68, being
local improvement by-laws, were
read for a first time. i
The city clerk stated that it was
necessary to name a night that two
aldermen should sit with the mayor
to revise the voters' list. The mayor
appointed Aid. Elliott and Aid.
Bailey to sit with him, the court to
be held on Friday, December 10th
when all objections to" names being
on the list would be heard.
It was suggested -that an effort
should be.made to collect all road
and dog taxes due by December
15th, the work to be put in the
hands of Chief Hidson
not quite understand the reason,
but considered that if the city were
liable for the whole amount, and
the people were dissatisfied with
the work being done by the night
constable, a movement should be
taken in the matter, and if desirable
the services, of the constable should
be suspended for a time. He had
asked Hidson to take down ocjec-
iiona and to lay them before the
council that night. He* could not
understand why he had hot turned
up to explain the situation.
The mayor said that no complaints had been received in the
council chamber, and he could not
understand them coming up when
payment was required.
The aldermen considered that it
was unsatisfactory in the first place
that the citizens should pay hall
and the city half. When the project was put before the council, it
was agreed that a certain portion
was guaranteed by the people and
that the constable was going to get
more names on the list, so that
nearly the whole amount would be
■ It was suggested that the matter
should be laid until the- constable
gave his report, but it was mentioned that action should be taken at
once if the night constable was to
be taken-.off at the, end of the
The ' mayor reported * that the
bulbs ordered for the park from
Holland were now at Vernon "and
would be- shipped, immediately.
According to agreement they wece
to be looked over on arrival, and if
found1 in good condition planted,
if they were frozen they would be
returned to thet sender. It was
mentioned that they had been one
month- over '• the time specified.

meet' again at: call of the mayor."
Bengough at Baptist Church
The crowd -which gathered -at

its utmost capacity and overflowed
into the 'porch and half way down

remarkably versatile genius, and
provided an entertainment which
held the audience interested'and
greatly amused without' • a
dull moment, for over two' hours.
His dever and rapidly executed

delighted applause as soon as the
subject was recognized. Every eye
was" fixed with rapt attention on

Dear Sir,—1 must"ask your pardon for
not answe-ing your letter of the 12th
before, but were simply swamped during
the last three days preceding the show,
and we had not time to answer a great
many letters which accumulated during
week of the exposition.
Before this time your 'representatives
have probably reached Kelowna and
have explained' the situation to ' you.
-The British Columbia exhibits fortunately were grouped in the same section ef
the big enclosure, and attracted far more
attention than during the previous year,
and at all times the aisles in front of the
Nelson and Arrow Lake exhibit and the
Vernon exhibit, the Salmon Arm exhibit
by R. H. Fortune, and .the DeHart ex.
hibit/ managed by Mr/ Gibbs, were
crowded. The other exhibits were, of
course, plsced in 10 box, 5 box, single
box and other rack .where signs are not
allowed, but judging by jthe number of
prize ribbons carried away by British
Columbia exhibitors, there was no difficulty in finding the right parties when
the judges got to their work. <
liT the arrangement of ViitKo exhibits
from British Columbia there wm a
marked improvement over last "year.
Artistic display is a strong point ia the
district exhibits and in the Limited contests, of which Mr. DeHart was the winner last year, artistic display carries
one.half of the award, and decoration
the,other half. There is no question
but what the popular verdict was for
one or both of the Limited displays
from British Columbia for first place,
bjut the judges viewed the matter differently, and of course' it would be improper of me to comment further upon
this award.
Mr. Rite goes on to speak in
very high terms of the regresent-
atives in charge of the exhibits from
B. C. and of their "untiring zeal in
making the best of their exhibit
Taken as a whole the results are
good, more especially when two

thereby limiting the choice. The"

of nearly every grower at present, and with so many nurseries to choose from, one can
' ^easily understand that the sanation is a little perplexing.
Many farmers have found
the trees from some particular
nursery specially adapted to
his land, and yet where one
farmer will succeed in getting
good results from So-and-so's
stock,- his next door neighbor
has nothing but blame to place
-upon the same kind of stock
grown under the same conditions. s This is often the
farmer's own fault. Either, he
has planted his trees too deep
or too shallow, or occasionally
the question of over-dampness
of the soil comes in.
From the Spokane results it
is  to  be  noted that in nearly
every  case  the  winning fruit
... .has  been  picked from  stock
grown  at  home, which seems
to  show that  in  selecting   a
nursery the preference should
be given to Canadian growers.
The    climate   and   soil   in
which  foreign  stock has been
raised  differs  in  many cases
from our own, and the strength
of the young tree is too often
- > exhausted  in  trying to adapt
itself to new conditions.   More-
■ over, why not plant from our
own when their products have
proved themselves superior in
- competition with those of other
The   Okanagan   is as   yet

down Chinatown in Salmon Arm
during the past'week. On Friday
night Chong Dong run down the
street looking for Constable Thomp

his face where another Chinaman,
Qyin Gee, had gone after him,
" lady fashion." By the time the
constable had arrived on the former
scene of hostilities, Qyin, like a
good little boy, had gone to bed.
Both Chinks were brought up before the magistiates on Saturday,
and as Chong had tried to let a
little daylight into his opponent,
using a cork screw for the purpose
both were called upon to help out
the municipal treasury to the extent
of $5 each. From what the constable
saw while in the Chinaman's shack
he felt justified in bringing Sam Kee
the keeper, up on the charge of
running a gambling house. He
fined $20 and costs. Picking up
from the Chinese cuss words with
which Sam told the bench that he

News of the Prairie.
Snow has come in most parts of
the prairie to stay, and the threshing machines are stored away for
the winter. Hauling wheat to
market is now the  order  of "the
day-   , , .
Very little fall plowing has been
done this year, partly owing to the
heavy crop "and lack of a'dgquate
threshing arrangements. In some
places oats are still reported in the
stook unthreshed.
Many farmers are being deprived
of their sons during the Winter,
many leaving their homes to put in
their time on a homestead or else
enter the bush.
■ - Prairie chicken are reported in
large numbers on the plains this
year and many people are putting

To all lovers of these best in
drama it will indeed be a welcome
announcement which has just been
made by manager D. May, to the
effect that Mr. C. P. Walker,'of
Winnipeg, will send his elaborate
production of " As You Like It/1
the most delightful of all Shakespeare's comedies, to Kelowna.
' The company presenting the
play consists almost entirely of
English players, and a'really intellectual and finished performance'
is assured. Mr. Walker has had
two sets of scenery constiucted
for the play, one -to be used 'in
such theatres as -his own beau-
tiful Walker, in Wininpeg, and the
other, an exact reproduction of the
larger set, to be used on the smaller stages, so that we can be assured
of a perfect scenic equipment.
The costumes are new and rich,
and add greatly to the beauty of
of the performance.
William Yule, a comedian well
known to the theatre-goers of the
West, has been especially engaged
for the role of "Touchstone,'' a
part to which he does ample
Not' only does this comedy
appeal to the literary minded, but
as a comedy it interests the lover
of the humorous, and its story holds
the attention of those desiring
dramatic situations and suspense.
" As You Like It" is a play for the
teacher, for the student; a play for
the philosopher and for the amusement seeker. It pleases the ear of
the poet, and delights.the eye of
the artist. It is the nearest play to
the ideal in drama that was constructed. .

Humorous-Minded    Individual    Once
Played- a Joke on the Kaiser and
.   a Deputation—An< Impudent Libel
*   on Princess Lo_ise -Archduke Salvador Victim of ' a   Cruel   Hoax—
How Prince Ferdinand Was Fooled.
The "Zeppelin telegram" is not the
first hoax which - jokerb have played
upon the Kaiser.      ■ '-
A few years ego a paragraph appeared in a Berlin drily stating that
Prince Henry, who hud just returned
from his visit to the United States,
had brought home,- at _ present to" his
brother, a numb -r of plants of a new
variety of crim&on carnetion. 'As
everyone knows," th° paragraph con-
eluded, "the red cm, tion is his'Imperial Majesty's f. vorite flower."
On the day after the publication of
this news the Kai->er was due at-Aix-
la-Chapelle. A <• "t tn-* >v'**
Council suggehted that everyone inthe
town should nw I'ttonliole of-the
Kaiser's favorite flower. " *
The suggestion wis, at*onceracted
on. The frock-cor.t"d members of-ifie
deputation which waited next morning on the platform each wore proudly
a buttonhole of the deepest crimson.
The poor fellows, could not conceive
why the Kaiser's demeanor was, so
freezing. He dismissed them with a
few words, got into'his carriage, and
drove off.        7      . ,A
At the Town Hnll was another deputation, similarly .1 .or t-d. 'Pien his
Majesty's wrath exploded. "What is
the meaning of-thih insult»'7he demanded. SomeoneVxplained.'and then
one of the K-ist's attendants took
the mayor aside. "My dear sir,"' he
said, "surely you know-that the red
eamation is th"_'-mblom of the Social Democrats, and.^of all-flowers,
the one which his Majesty chiefly, detests!" -    ■ '      '   -     '
As impudent a hoax as ever ' was
heard of was perpetrated in 1904 upon
s Belgian paper. A letter, purporting
to be in the handwriting ,and above
the signature of Piincess Louise of Co-
bourg, wi.s roceiv "I by the editor, who
very foolishly p tblished it without
first assuring hhiiWf as to its genuineness. > ' *'   "".
This letter give a long "catalogue
of the wrongs of Prihcess. Louise and
©J* her sisters, and constituted a~mo3t
brutal attack upon - her father,' the
King of the Belgians. •   \-  <
The letter wes--t once copied;by a
number of other papers'. - Naturally,
it gave great puis) to the Princess herself, "and the <>' lv wonder "is that, a
prosecution for lib'l was not the.im-
mediate result. -       *■'•• ":..- _
Five years ago a young American
woman vho. v . cyirR m Copenhagen made a bet w itVi a friend that she
'Would "propose'to the King of "Denmark, "- . ' - *' ?
'~JBi& late Mai^.-i^y was accustomed .to,
devote'one morni c a week to the'reception of anyom who desired to pre-
ient any kind-of petition to him, and
it waa on-one,,of these;occasions that
the American found her-way to-the
Boyal residence.     -              1  ,       "
"What can I do for you, madam?"
'asked the King. -       ",,       ,
,   "your "Majesty, I desired to ask you
if you would like to marry me?" vra»
the reply.      * "..A    -      ".-
-   The'King merely smiled.
A"L-am* afraid I un-a.little too old/-
he said.   And at the same moment hv
beckoned to one   of  the  officials  to'
'conduct the. lady to the door.   He had
put her down as a harmless .lunatic.
A joke of rather a rough order was
played upon the firsrt cousin of the
Emperor of Austria, the Archduke
Salvator. ^ Two or three years ago
the duke, who is very^fohd of traveling, was in Paris. He was passing
the Bourse—the Parisian equivalent
,of our Stock Exchange—when his eomr
panion, a"larky young French count,
suggested that he might like to look
inside. -
- "If you walk straight in," he Baid,
''no one will notice you. -,They;^ill
take you for a stockbroker."
, The duke took him at his word, but,
of course, he was  no sooner inside
than he was at once reoognized as a
•ighteeer.   His silk hat was instantly
spirited away, and he ^ was at once"
notebooks, shouting fabulous offers to
buy or sell stock. . -, <
The duke had a desperate struggle
to reach the front lobby, and when at
lost he got there, hatless and breathless, h'e found'that some genial soul
bad pinned a long price-list to the
tails of his coat. ,    .. J
It is not likely that' any reigning
'sovereign ever got a more unpleasant
' scare than did Ferdinand of Bulgaria
some* five years* ago. His private
secretary, a young baron, was away,
in Austria on a vacation, when a let*
ter arrived for his Royal master, announcing that he did not proposo t»
return, and that he would be glad ot
the sum of $200,000. Otherwise, be
wrote, he would be compeli'-il to sell
a number of secret documents whieJf,
be had taken away with him.
Instantly Prince Ferdinand •<_♦•
spatched a couple of secret servies
envoys in chase of his missing seer*-
tary, whom they ran to ground peacefully shooting on his own estate.
Further investigation proved the mil-
sive to be nothing but a hoax.
Old Country News
Early Election Anticipated.
Developments in the budget situation
probably will result in the whole question
being laid directly before the people in the
form of a general election earlier than had
beeen planned, which was about the
middle of January. The cabinet met
within the last few days on account of the
situation caused by Lord Lansdowne'a
motion to withhold the consent of the < B°* 66
House of Lords to the budget until it bed
been ratified by a general election or a
referendum, and it was decided to call Jin

seven , months' imprisonment. Three
months of her punishment was given for
the'offence of interfering With a ballot box,

absence their houses were robbed, pre-
sumabiy by the false informant.

Rutland News.
A most interesting debate took
place in connection with the Rutland Literary Society on Friday last
atthei-home Mrs. Goodrich. The
; -bjecf of debate : Resolved that the
pen has been mightier than the
sword in the cause of civilization,"
was handled very cleverly' by the
leaders,'Mrs. Dilworth and Mrs.
Gray. Mrs. Dilworth, for the pen,
pointed out that during the long,
early struggles and civil wars in
England there was no progress in
. civilization, that the country was in
a state of semi-barbarism, and it
was .not. until the freedom of the
press and freedom of speech was
secured that any progress at all
took place. The pen was symbolical pf our great educational systems
and the wonderful advancement
caused by education was far in
excess of any good that may have
. , been accomplished by war. War
brought misery, poverty and heavy
burdens in its train, but the pen
brought progress, peace and
' Mrs. Gray then took up the side
of the sword and said it was only
through the sword that any advancement towards civilization had
been possible in the past, instancing
^he Crusades, which had been the
cause'of a wonderful spread of
Christianity; the long struggle
which led up to the signing of the
Magna Charta; of the marvellous
uplift during the age of chivalry,
and of the wonderful civilizing
influence of the sword in holding
barbarity in check.
Enthusiastic appreciation was
given both leaders, and a majority
of the members present took part
in the interesting discussion which
followed, the arguments for and
against being sumarised as follows:
Mr. Goodrich : Queen Victoria by
a stroke of the pen has averted
many wars; the abolition of slavery
was championed even more by the
pen than by the sword. Dr. Baker:
The power of the sword is not past
even though it be sheathed. The
great armajnents of the nations did
' n.ost to preserve peace and pros-
" perity. Mr. Schell:'The trouble
between the North and South
would never, have been settled by
the pen, it required a mightier
weapon. Mr. J. White: It is only
by the use of the sword that the
,-_.; pen is given a chance. Mr. Huckle:
The sword has" had its day, the
present and future was for the pen.
The debate was also entered into
with cleverness and enthusiasm by
Mrs. Goodrich, Mr. Sproule, Mr.
Yale, Mr. Clever and the president,
Mr. Dickenson acted as critic, and
gave some interesting pointers to
the various participants in the debate. TKe vote being taken, a
verdict in favour of the sword was
secured by a large majority.
An interesting reading was then
given by Mr. Charlton, closing the
evening's proceedings.
Next week the meeting will be
dispensed with in view of the
public meeting which takes place
in the school house for the discussion of local improvement matters and the disposal of the old
school house. December I Oth will
be devoted to "An Evening With
Tennyson," under the direction of
Dr. Baker, when a short paper on
the life and personality of Tennyson
will be given, followed by selections
and illustrations from his works.
Mr. Facey returned from the
prairie last Thursday and reports
good crops. He has sold his land
on the Central Okanagan Bench to
Mr. P. Morin of Montreal, and
expects to leave the valley for good
next week.
David M. Turner, who has been
staying for the last 3 months in a
tent On the Rutland Bench, left
last Wednesday for his home in
Calgary, intending to return here
in the spring.
Victor Dilworth and his wife
have gone hunting and will stay in
the hills 6ntil next Monday. On
Sunday they will sing that world
renowned anthem : " How Beautiful Upon the Mountains."

A Scottish'laird overheard some
lowland cattle dealers discussing
the use of " England " instead of
" Britain " in Nelson's famous signal, "England expects that every
man will do his duty." According
to one patriotic Scot, there was no
question of the admiral's forget-*
fulness, and when a companion
expressed surprise at the " injustice," the patriot reassured him.
" Nelson," he explained, *" only
' expects' of the English ; he said
naething of Scotlan', for he kent
the Scotch wad do theirs."

'-r   Does Veto Hurt Business?
In an age like this when the dollar bulks
so' big' this ia- an all-important question.
The liquor traffic,^driven b> fhe stem logic
of ", things as they_are," from,one position
to. onollier. has 'taken ita last stand upon
the quesiion that the veto hurts business.
This is a master that cannot be settled
by theory,'-, or. philosophy,- or^individual
opinion.. (Much' jless can-it be^aettled by
the' ipse, dixit .of a few dry travellers or
other friends of the trade.''''' "
If veto hurts business, then in the nature
of the case, the business men in veto towns

would  be  the 'first to know it.   If it kills
towns;'then the townspeople in the dead

-. W. H. B. Hill, mayor of Hartney, Man.,
and -the leading merchant, who does not
pose aa a temperance man, says: " I have
no ..'hesitation in saying that business con-
?itioni.are infinitely better.under veto than
under license. Hartney most effectually
disproves-*the statement that towns with
bars draw business .from veto towns. Our
tow commands every pule, of territory due
to it, and more.
Councillor A. Fry. of Hartney, Bays: " I
have , always"* worked against veto, and
thought that we,*"would be better,off with
a. license. But I want to be honest and
must say vet<x.is a success. 1 do not believe ten men'could" be found to vote
agaipst it."

Epigrams Designed to Cheer Up Che
Ablution Department.
It is very odd that while mottoes
have been.-- made, invented and borrowed for every other room in the
house, the bathroom should be motto-
lese. Verses appropriate to the bedroom come prettily framed, the din-
i_g-room walls sometnites 'show a
mural decoration of good cheer, ai
appropriate verse is carved-into th-
library mantel, while smoking-room,
'den and living-roo u cj ch "bo-fat- a
"special incentive to smoke, loaf, or in-
'dulge in cheery chatter in painted)
pyrographed, or stencilled verse or
prose. Only the bathroom remains
mottoless. *
No invitation to tuin on as hot a
bath as one wishes adorns its walls.
No cheerful assurance that "in ,this
house water is a luxury, not a necessity, bo use It at will." Not even the
commonplace that clennliness is next
to godliness serves as an inducement
for the children to become amphibious
oftener than -they are driven.
Surely, with' so vast a field for invention or imitation, there should be
no dearth of mottoes for the bathroom. For example, take Bacon's
"Cleanness of body was eve* esteemed
to proceed from a due reverence to
God." 4   ,
And here's one from sixteenth century's John Hey wood—
i   The loss of wealth is loss of dirt,
As sages at all times assert,
The happy man's without a shirt.
Or Pope's scon ful | rod, "A heap of
idust alone remains of three." ' Ay 1
there's the rub 7i .i','ht,be carved into
the towel rack, while let into, or over
the tub, Dryoi>S uncp _"ore iji on tne
waters, yet once more." Or.Milton'e—
Listen where thou art sitting
' Under the glossy, cool, translucent
.f     wave . '
< would be most appropriate.
These are only a few crude suggestions with which to enliven the walls
•of the most important room in the
house. Anyone with time and ingenu-
- ity, with a quotation book or a ready
pen, may make the bathroom walls
bo interesting to the sometime bajbher
that even the boy of the family may
hear, without sullen acknowledgment,
the old, familiar "Be sure and take a
bath, Bobbie, before you go to bed."

Fortunes   Typical    of   Countries   in
Which They Were'Made.
The greatest foi tunes in" the largest
cities of the world are curiously typical of the countries   in   which their
^owners live, as the death of the noted
shopkect i oi _* m, .     \ Chauchard,
reminds those who observe the. characteristics of nations and races.
This great retail ar of  merchandise
founded- his   business   on   women's
■clothing and women's finery. His success began in that field, whiclTis exactly where the richest man-in Pans
might be-expected to find his wealth.
The French metropolis certainly lived
S_p to'its-reiu... uj »* huiI'"'-^a fortune for a refail merchant which overtopped/all 'other big estates, in that
•gay centre"of the1 world's fashions and
1 the" world's .merrymakingA"*   -
< The Richest man in New York built
his" vast wealth on manufactures.   So
did the owner of the second  of»the
"great fortunes" of that city's residents.,
The'richest Londoner is supposed to
be the Jhike of Westminster,   whose
wealth represents landed possessions
acquired from ancestors who obtained
their real estate by royal favor gen-,
'orations ago. In Germany the greatest,
fortune belongs to the heirs of a mak-
'er of  cannon and other  products of
'iron and steel. _Since Krupp'is"dead,-
the richest man in active business in
the German Empire is probably a Berlin banker.    " ...-,',
mi the gossip of financial circles, Is
£tovbe relied upon, the greatest for-
ttunes in Austria-Hungary and Russia
are landed estates;-* the accretion '.of
:generations of special privileges and
grants from, sovereigns.   Like cond^
,tior.s exist in Sprun and Italv, though
"in the last eogntry,some of the manufacturers *arV"faBt rising to the level
'otthe richestnobles, in pecuniary n-
sources.        ~" ,

Jack Minor met with what might
have proved to be a serious accident last Sunday when out shooting in the vicinity of Duck Lake. It
appears that,'the man accidentally
fell upon his rifle, the weapon at
the time discharging itself and
knocking him unconcious. The bullet struck' Minor in the close, vicing
ity of the heart, and when he recovered conciousness he was of the
opinion that he had been shot in
that vital part of the body. A trip
into town was made, and Dr. Knox
consulted it being/ found that the
bullet-had' struck' -one of Minor's
ribs and had guided itself round
the man's left side and out again.
Except for a severe flesh wound the
injury is not dangerous.
