Final Meetings of Old Council
Presentation Made to Mr. G. H. Dunn in'Appreciation of Services as City Clerk
The City Council met on Friday
last, Mayor DeHart and Aldermen
Bailey, Ball, Cox, Elliott and ^Rowcliffe being present. The minutes
-of the previous meeting having
been read and adopted, the clerk
read the following correspondence:
frbm;:__ :'A'/ -y y -.yy ..
T he'Canadiah   Fairbanks   Co.,
stating that their contract did not
... call for a 7£ K.W. exciter, their
only reason for suggesting that one
this size should be. sent, was in
case, the orife at present supplied to
the plant, was, not giving satsfaction.
They considered this was the case,
and asked that the council would
give their reasons for asking for a
larger size exciter, so that they
could consider their claims. They
also returned a note for $1,500
tendered them in settlement of
their account, with the remark that
they did not discount notes, and
that evidently some mistake had
been made in the figures as their
account was for $2,500 and not
$1,500.
Aid. Elliott suggested that the
matter should be turned over to
the next council, but Aid. Ball
considered it better that the present
council should take up the exciter
question. He suggested that
reply should be sent, togetherwith
a copy of Mr. Russell's report to
the Canadian Fairbanks Co., and
that- it should be stated-that the
council would agree to pay'as soon
as the new exciter wap ijlaced,. in
position and workmg^'properly.
The, • following motion was put
forward:
That the council, approve the
payment of the balance due the
Canadian Fairbanks Co., on account
as soon as the 7J K. W. exciter is
installed and working properly.
This motion was passed, and the
city clerk was instructed to send-a
copy of it, as well as a copyof the
chief engineer's report to the Canadian Fairbanks Co., Mayor DeHart
explaining that he would be going
to the coast on the morrow, and
would see the Fairbanks Co. with
reference to the matter. _
A letter from Jno. Peck, Chief
Inspector of boilers, acknowledged
receipt of the clerk's, letter of
Dec. 1st, and said that: the matter
of the accident had not yet. received-
his consideration. He was in receipt of Blue Prints from the Can.
Fairbanks Co., but was not satisfied
that they were the original ones,
prepared before the, plans Were
alteredTby^^ alo^^enpn^r—filedr
A letter from BrendtNoxbn Co.,
re debentures was filed.
. The police report for .1909 was
next read aa follows:   Drunk and
.disorderly, 34; drunk and incapable
5, disorderly conduct, 5 ; vagrancy
8; arrests, 4; assisted - home, 5;

Benevolent Society, who promised
that the case should have their
attention. The only 7dif__culty at
present was that Mrs. McGee _was
not supplied with a cook stove,
but he had heard of one that could
lent: to her; until some different
arTahgement cpuldbe. made.
7 Aid. Ball then stood up and remarked that while they were still a
happy family, it, was bis pleasant
duty to read'a letter from the council to Mr. G. H. Dunn,, which. ran
as follows'. A A. -;
.Dear Mr. Diinn*:       '  7    ; _7
The City Council of 1909, upon retiring from office, desire to express
their appreciation of your faithful and
efficient services as City clerk. You
have always been courteous and ready
to render all the^ assistance in your
power to faciliate the work committed
to the care of the various committees.
Your knowledge of civic law and pro- "
ceedure has kept the municipal wheels
running smoothly.
As members of the Council of 1909,
we ask you to accept the accompanying cabinet of knives and fogies as a
token of our esteem, and as a reminder
of the pleasant relations which have
existed between us in the discharge
of our municipal duties. -  -
Signed F.R.E. DeHART, Mayor.
Aid. S. T. ELLIOTT. G. ROWCLIFFE,
E.R. BAILEY, A.S.COX,
J. BALL.
The cabinet bore the inscription:
Presented to G. H. Dunn
by the Council of 1909,
Kelowna, B. C.
'The city clerk thanked the mayor
and aldermen for their very nice
present, which- he- woulcL- prize
greatly, more especially the letter,
which was' of more importance to
him than the beautiful, cabinet of
knives. "I have always tried' to
do my best," said Mr. Dunn, " but
1 never considered my work worthy
of such appreciation as it has received at your hands.- I cannot
express my feelings for your
appreciation."
Mr. Dunn sat down amid applause from the council as well as
from the press gallery.
The mayor said he would not be
present at the final sitting of the
■council, and he wished to take the
opportunity of thanking the aldermen one and all for the kind
manner which they had helped
him, and looked after the various
departments committed to their
charge. He also paid a tribute
to the press,, thanking them for the
impartial manner they had reported meetings, and for the courtesy
they hfid: shown the various
members of the council. He ended

The motion to adjourn was then
carried.

animals 2, making a total of 82.
There were also 2 cases dismissed
and 2 withdrawn.
The. may or considered that the
report was not so bad, considering
that there were three licensed
house* in town. The average convictions for drunkenness were about
three a month.    A
Aid. Bailey* caused some little
amusement by the remark that the
amount of drunkenness had fallen
off owing to the increased taxation,
which had -made the citizens too
poor to buy liquor.
The city clerk stated that he had
not had time to get the electric
light accounts posted, and asked
that the council would pass a
motion allowing the usual discount
if the accounts were paid within
ten days of the date they bore.
The motion was accordingly made
and carried.
Aid. Cox reported upon having
placed Mrs. McGee jn nice comfortable quarters, and also stated that
he had seen the secretary of the
Chicken stealing was the order
of the day some few weeks back,
and now it seems as though the
thieves were stealing the grain to
feed them with, several bags of
wheat having been missed lately.
Sunday evening seems to be the
favorite time for these mean cusses
to get around and do their work,
just when they know the occupants
have gone to church and left, .their
houses unprotected. They broke
into the Methodist Parsonage last
Sunday, but did not succeed in
getting anything of much value.
They took out a cash box in.o the
back yard and there forced off the
lid, but the box fortunately contained nothing but papers (sermons
perhaps?). It "is up to the police
department to take vigorous measures to bring these pests to justice,
and stop the annoying pilfering
which is going on.
The deal between the government
and the C. N. R. has been definitely
closed, and work on the new line
from Yellowhead Pass to the
Pacific will be started as soon as
possible.
Mr. H. Lavigne left this afternoon for Penticton.
The Board of Trade met last
night, and after some little difficulty
had been experienced in getting a
quorum together, the meeting appointed Mr. H. W, Raymer" to the

meeting haying been adopted, the
following correspondence was read
by the secretary, from:
The Associated Boards of Trade,
enclosing a list of resolutions

Vernon Board of Trade—That a

the time of the departure of trains
from Sicamous so that a more convenient passenger and mail service
could be established.
Kelowna Board of Trade—Asking for a government inspection of
bees which are being imported into B.C. from the east, and supposed
to be infected, (b) Askings for redistribution, (c) For a mail clerk
to be placed on the S.S. Okanagan.
(d) That the  GP.R.  be urged to
continue a daily steamboat service.

The president, Mr. J. Dilworth,

opening remarks drew attention to
the work the-Institute had been
carrying. He had been to the
convention at Victoria last year,
at v/hich meeting several good

had already been carried out. He
also referred tb the experts who had
been sent round lecturing to the

self had been absent from the city
for the past seven -months, and
was not in consequence very well
acquainted with the progress of
the Institute during that time, but
aa far as the finances were concerned, they were better than last
year, as a balance of $40 was
shown in the bank pass book. He
suggested that the balace should be
verified and passed by the present
meeting..
The secretary then read a list of
receipts and expenditures which
showed * a balance of $41.41, and
upon motion it was agreed that
this statement should be' accepted.
Me^T^io. Speer, remarking *opon.
the present state of the Institute,
said that he did not think sufficient
was got out of it, and that if a regular series of lectures was established the membership would increase,
and more interest would be taken
in the society.
Mr. Dilworth said that owing to
various outside towns having lately
established their own branches of
the Farmers' Institute, the membership of this branch had decreased,
and atjpresent there were only 66
members on the '-books. He
agreed that if the Institute could be
made of greater benefit to the
farmers more of them'would become members.
■ Mr. Dolsen said he was fully in
favor of a series of- lectures or 4dis-
cussions being held.-; • He himself
learned more from discussion with
his neighbors than by any other
means, and considered that Mr.
Speers' suggestion was one which
should be taken up at once.
Mr. Sutherland said he would
suggest uiat ioccu men, wiui expert
knowledge on certain subjects,
should be approached to give lectures on their special line. He
himself would be only too willing
to give a lecture on "Bees," as he
himself was an old apiarist, and
could possibly give a paper that
would be of interest to the members.
It was agreed to accept Mr. Sutherland to give a lecture on " Bee
Culture," this first lecture to take
place' on Feb. 16th. It was also
decided that other people should
be approached to give papers on
other subjects.
Mr. Dilworth then mentioned
that it would be necessary for him
to withdraw from his position as
president of the Institute as he was
no longer a resident in the town:
Although he was thus severing his
connection with the .Institute, he
always had and always would feel
an interest in its work, and extend'
ed an invitation to anyone who
was in Victoria in that connection
to look him up.
The work of appointing officers
was then taken up, the following
being elected:
Ptesident^Mr. T. G. Speers
Vice-Pres.—Mr. A. Patterson
Directors—Messrs. Dolsen, Raymer, McEachern, Woolridge, and
DeHart.
Mr. Raymer proposed a vote of
thanks to Mr. Dilworth for his untiring efforts in connection with the
welfare of the Institute. It was;
proposed that as Mr. Wilks, the
secretary, would be retiring shortly;
the opportunity should be taken
to tender him a vote of thanks for
the work he had done for the Institute, and for the capable way in
which he had handled its business.
The assembly showed their appreciation by loud and prolonged
applause.
Both die president and the secretary replied in terms befitting
the occasion.
The secretary pointed out that it
was:. important that the meeting
should appoint a delegate to represent the Institute at the Annual
Convention at Victoria on February 2nd. AA!;.
Mr. T. G. Speers was nominated,
Mr. McEachern being asked to act
in case Mr. Speers should be unable to attend.   ■       7 ^77v7A;A

pressed to state whether I considered it right or anarchy to raise an
armed rebellion against the authorities, I replied that I believed there
were times when it was right to
revolt against tyranny and oppressive laws, and instanced for our
American friend the American revolt against the unjust laws of King
George, and the Parliamentary
revolt against the tyranny of
Charles I.
However, it is a matter which is
quite irrelevant to Socialism, even
though a Socialist editor did say
so. But without seeing the paper
referred to, or any other documentary proof, I shall refuse to believe that any Socialist editor could
be so foolish as to endanger the
existence of his journal or his own
personal freedom by publishing
such inflamatory matter.
Yours truly,
GEORGE F. STIRLING.
" Vita sine Uteris mors est,''
said some old writer who probably couldn't speak English.
Freely translated, he meant to
say that life was not worth living if one could not have access
to that literature in which is
stored for our benefit the products' of the world's greatest
minds. A city without a library
is like a school without a teacher or a church without a religion, or anything expressive
of a hollow mockery. The
mind must have food as well
as the body or it will deteriorate. It is a principle of evolution that if any faculty is not
used it tends to diminish and
eventually to disappear. And
so if we allow the youth of our
town, from sheer want of reading facilities, to grow up with
all their energies thrown into
purely physical sports, we must
expect to find them strong in
body, but their intellects !
and  their   morals worse.
There is always hope for the
boy who reads, for there is an
ennobling influence in good
books which is irresistable.
And how are we'in Kelowna
providing for the welfare of the
people in this respect ? What
opportunities are we giving the
boy or girl athirst for knowledge, or me man or woman
who has grown up in the companionship of books, and finds
his leisure hour a little empty
because of his inability to purchase more than a very few ?
There is a movement on foot
' to re-establish the old Kelowna
library, which used to flourish
in the Post Office under the
paternal eye of Mr. Bailey. But

Dear Mr. Editor,
I ahall esteem it a favour if you
will publish the following.
Mr. Michael Hereron has stated
to rny wife that rdmors are flying
all over the valley that at a meet-
_ ing at Rutland where I was asked
to lead a discussion on "Socialism,"
I made a statement that " It was
right to shoot a judge if his verdict
was not pleasing to the people."
As Mr. Hereron hates Socialists
and Socialism it is quite possible
the foregoing sentence originated
in his fertile imagination.
At' the' meeting referred to an
American visitor asked a question
bearing upon the alleged action of
a Socialist paper in the States. He
said that meeting instigated an
armed revolt of the workers in the
event of the conviction of tbree
leaders of the Miners' Union, and
asked me if I .nought that that
was right, ori;was it anarchy? I
replied that I was entirely ignorant
of the case referred to.   On being

but it looks doubtful whether we

A concert is proposed to be held
at the Ellison School house early in

expenses of a new hall for public
entertainments.
The Westbank road is completed
as far as Vernon's place.
Road work is still going on
throughout the valley and the
present weather is very favourable
for those taking part in the improvements.

Rutland News.
A record audience listened to
the debate last week, upon the
interesting subject as to the relative
power in moulding public opinion
of the press and the pulpit. ^ Mr. C.
H. Leathley and Mr. Goodrich
championed the cause of the pulpit ; dealing with the subject in its
restricted sense ofthe preacher and
the newspaper press, receiving a'
total of 45 points. Rev. Pike and
Mr. Jno. Wolsey, very ably upheld
the cause of the press, dealing with
the press in its broadcast standpoint
securing a total of 51   points.     A

Messrs. Schell Bros.* are commencing a house for Mr. Sutcliffe
on his property near the church.
We understand Mr. Sutcliffe will
be returning from the Old Country
very shortly.
The Howe Land Co. have disposed of their holdings in the Rutland property to Mr. A. Clever,
who will shortly be moving out
here.
Some six new residences have
been erected at Rutland this winter,
and several more are planned for
the spring.
The Rutland estate Irrigation Co.
hold their first annual meeting and
election of .officers Monday, Feb. 7.
Apropos of the Vernon Election
deadlock, one of our townspeople
puts it rather neatly—" Vernon is
trying to get a divorce from her
Husband."
The general election in the Old
Country has been productive of
many surprises. The results up to
the present show elected: Unionists, 92, Liberals, 99, Labormen,
16, Nationalists, 13, the net gain
for the Unionists so far being 29.
This result practically assures the
return of the Liberal to power with
a fair majority, for amongst the
places still to poll are those in
Scotland and Wales which are
always solid Liberal.
THE  BANISTERS.
What They Tell the Dwellers In New
York's Tenements.
Many a grewsome bit of wisdom 1&
gleaned by settlement workers. The
other day a woman ot philanthropic
tendencies trudged miles loot.ing for
rooms for an unfortunate family that
had to move. After she had made a
selection that would tit their scant
means the mother of the family went
around to see the rooms before moving In.
"Oh," exclaimed that wise tenement
dweller, "we'd be worse off here than
where we are! This place is too unhealthy."
"How do you make that out"?" asked
the settlement worker. "It strikes me
as being better than most houses of
Its class."
The woman pointed to the banisters,
which ran up through the five flights
of stairs to the roof In a ragged, broken line. "Coffins," she said grimly.
"That's what that means. Coffins is
terrible hard on banisters. There are
too many deaths here to suit me."
And when the settlement worker
learned that many tenement dwellers
really do Judge of the healthfulness of
a house by the condition of tbe banisters she concluded that tbat place
wouldn't suit her either.—New _ork

WOMAN.
A Mystery That Keeps Man Eternally
on the Guess.
"When woman bas ceased to be a
mystery she will cease to be of special
Interest to man," said one among the
loveliest of her sex, and she is able to
speak as one having authority, for she
is comely and bas been alive long
enough to know whereof she speaks.
And, come to think of it, she Is
about right—she Is right
It isn't because woman makes of
herself a mystery. She's a mystery in
spite of herself. And nature alone,
being man's superior on earth, seems
to be playing woman so as to keep
man ever guessing, for as soon as he
has succeeded In figuring ont one of
her equations she bands him another,
and so on, and on.
At first the young man thinks be
knows all about all women, but by tbe
time bis locks begin to whiten be Is
ready to concede thai be doesn't even
know all about one. Or do you know
all about ber?
To the laddie they are all klssable,
or nearly all, but as time passes tbe
klssable list shortens and shortens until at last—well, you may answer for
yourself, but no doubt It Is quite short
unless you belong to tbe promiscuous
brotherhood.—Pittsburg Gazette-Times.
Lure of the Heroic.
Why Is baseball tbe game of tbe
summer instead of croquet, and football tbe game of the autumn Instead
of tlddledewinks? It is tbe element of
conflict, of struggle, tbat gives to tbe
diamond and tbe gridiron their empire
over tbe Imagination. Tbe wbole man
goes into baseball, whereas croquet
cannot contain tbe entire personality
of any except a very weak dilation of
masculinity. Tbe normal man likes a
game that tries tbe player's thflw and
sinew, eye and brain, heart and courage.
Tbe fact of tbe matter Is that nothing Is more attractive to men than
difficulty, hardship, danger. Tbe call
of the heroic Is Irresistible. A case in
point Is that of a man who left one
position for another a few months
ago. Be turned bis back on friends
and a sure success to grapple wltb
difficulties of a most unusual kind.
His employers-offered bim everything
tbey could give bim to induce bim to
remain. But one tbing they could not
duplicate—tbe opportunity for a struggle such as tries men's souls. Tbat
was more to bim than tbe material
reward.—St Louis Republic.
Tip to the Wayfarer.
"We!!," demanded the stem faced
woman as aba leaned over tbe red
handled broom, "what do you want?"
"Lady," said the wayfarer with tbe
long beard and matted chin, "I'm an
actor by profession and in hard luck."
"Well, what have I to do wltb that?"
"Why—er-I was thinking if you
could spare me a quarter to get a
shave and a balr cut I could get a job
in the role of Vlrglnlus."
Sha eyed bim disdainfully.
"Oh. that's a poor excuse," she said,
with a curl of ber tbln lip. "Go up to
the town without a shave and a balr
cut and get a Job In tbe role of Rip
Van. Winkle."
And before be could say another
word she started to unchain the dog.-

The Moon.
Tbo moon's mean distance from tbe
earth Is 237.000 miles. When it Is at
the perigee—nearest point—It Is 225,000
miles and when at tbe apogee—farthest point—more than 25_,o00 miles
from the earth. Tbe actual diameter
Is estimated at 2,1***- miles, or a little
less than three-elevenths ot tbe earth's
diameter. Tbe moon's volume Is
therefore about one forty-ninth tbat
of the earth, and Its mass Is one
eighty-eighth ot the earth; consequently theforce of gravity Is so much less
at Its surface than It Is at the earth's
surface that a body weighing 1,00-
poundn here would weigh on the moot,
only 1<_3 pounds.

OLD COUNTRY NEWS
Bank of England Robbed.
By means of a forged cheque the Bank
of England has been victimised to the
extent of £1,500. The Burlington Gardens
branch of the Bank received from a client
—Mr. Ralli, of Park-lane—"a request for a
cheque-book. Just before closing time a
well-dressed man drove up to the Bank in
a taxi-cab and presented a cheque for
£1,500, signed by the client in question.
No doubt being entertained at the time
that the signature was genuine, the money
was handed over to the visitor, there
being sixteen £50 notes, six £100 notes,
and £100 in gold. Later the suspicion of
one of the head officials of the Bank was
aroused, and the supposed drawer of the
cheque was commuicated with. He repudiated the signature, and disclaimed all
knowledged of the man who had so
successfully duped the Bank. Three men
are now in custody in connection with the
charge.
Pined for Attractioe Windoto.
Rendering their shop windows too attractive has cost Mesrs. Swan and Edgar
£8 4s. Their managing 'director, Mr.
Walter. Morford, was summoned at Marl-
borough-street for causing an obstruction
at Piccadilly Circus by exhibiting in a
coiner window three tableaux mounted on
a turntable (controlled by hand), and
showing figures of women dressed for the
restaurant, the theatre, and the park.
One Farthing Tram Fares.
The first car of a service on which a
farthing fare be charged ran over new track
of the Metropolitan Electric Tramways Co.,
from Golders-Green'Tube Station to Tally
Ho Corner, North Finchley. The experiment
ofthe farthing fare arises out of a new
arrangement in charging the distances.
The district seved is likey to prove one in
which the shorter journeys predominate,
and it is one in which people are likely to
make two or more or even more journeys
in a sigle day, so that: the farthing: saved
means a good many shillings,, and-even
fpounds, in the course of time.

Gas Explosion Injures Fioe Men.
Injury to five men and immense inconvenience to vehicular and- pedestrain
traffic were the results of a gas explosion
which occurred outside'St. Paul's Station,
and close to the new subways at the• foot
of Blackfriars. Biidge. Some Post Office
employees-were at work on tho wires in an
underground, junction chamber when an
.escape of gas was noticed. Suddenly the
lid of the electric main box abojit, a yard
away blew off, and then there was a ;big
flash where^the men were working.' Gne
was blown bodily 7 or 8ft. up the shaft
intd the roadway. A •' little'' later another
explosion occured . in two electric light
main boxe; aUthe. street refuge about mid.
way between the Hand-in-Hand Insurance
Company's ; offices'•.;,: aud the' Blackfriars
Railway Station. The two; stone and iron
lids', weighing each about lewt., were*
hurled into the air, and one of them  fell
onapaser-by. a MhN °ck'      hre«
workmen in the employ of one of the
electric lighting companies supplying the
Gty, who were near the spot, were burnt,
about the face and head by*"the upward
rush of the flames.
Lad of Fifteen Decorated.
. .Most conspicuous among the people ,up
on whom"theTKing'bestowed honours: at
the Investiture recently, was a boy fifteen,
who seemed dazzled by th unaccustomed
brilliancy of his surroundings. This was
Tom William Lewis, the fifteen-year-old
hero of the Newport Dock disaster last
July. When it seemed that nothing could
save the lives of the men who were pinned
down'under this huge weight of wreckage;
the boy wriggled down through the small
interstices in the tangle of timber in the
collapsed trench, and for over two hours,
with the knowledge that at any moment he
might be crushed to death, he sawed and
chiselled at the imprisoning beams. For
this act of -heroism he was awarded the
bronze Albert.Medal of the second-class,
which was pinned onThis breast ^by the
King himself. Itbears'th«jnscription:—
Presented by His Majesty the King to
Tom Lewis for gallantry in saving life at
the dock extension works, Newport, Mon.,
Jury 2, 1909.
A Lake of Solid Soda.
' Fred. Shelfprd, an engineer of the projected African' railroad from Uganda to
Lake Magadi, tells of a wonderful soda
lake which' he discovered - after a most
difficult journey over ^ waterless country.
Shelford says: "Lake Magadi 'is pic-
turesquelyjsituated between vast mountains,
there were no signs of human life. We
found the water a few inches deep, covering a hard surface looking like a hard
marble. This is an immense deposit of
soda, which, when bored, was found to
extend to a considerable depth, indicating
an area of at least twenty square miles of
•olid soda.
Aftutaki   islanders  Catch   Them
the Tail With a Lasso.
The island of Aitutalci, one of the
Hervey group, iu the Pacific, is surrounded by islets underneath which
are submarine caverr.s, the home of
sharks: The natives classify them as
lagoon sharks, which are quite ferocious at times ar-d spare nothing
they can seize, The lagoon shark,
about six feet long, is esteemed a
delicacy, a* the natives supply their-
feasts with .ae toothsome.dish by a
remarkable  style of fishing.^
Arrived over the entrance to the.
shark cave,- the fisherman leaves his
canoe to the care of his companions
and dives to the bottom, carrying
with him a slipknot of strong cord.
He expects to find two' or three sharks
at home, well satisfied and drowsy
after feeding in the lagoon, with their
tails toward the entrance. Selecting
the largest, the diver adroitly adjusts
a noose over tlie tail, taking care that
it hangs loosely. . If he has another
noose he secures a second shark.
The shark catcher now, with one
bound on the white, sandy bottom,
rises to the surface in orfler to assist
his friends in hauling up the fish.
The astonished sleepers beneath suddenly find themselves ascending tails
first to the surface. Once inside the
canoe a smart blow from an axe between the eyes or on the nose ends
the career of the fish.
. One of the most successful shark
catchers at Aitutaki was Reubena.
Long practice had made him almost
amphibious. One morning he started
off with two companions to one of the
more distant islets.
On entering it Eeubena found several sharks lazily resting themselves.
In a trice a slipknot was skillfully
passed over the tail of the nearest-
shark without exciting its ire. The
shark at this critical juncture moved,
so that there was not room enough
for Reubena to get out.
He gently stroked the side of the
shark and succeeded in inducing it
to move away so as to permit his
exit. This operation is said to be very
agreeable to the fish,, but if through
nervousness the shark be stroked the
wrong way its anger is sure to be ex-:
cited and the diver's life would-be
the certain forfeit.
Reubena was making' his escape
when, to his dismay, another large
shark came back from feeding in the
lagoon and blocked up the entrance
with his unwieldy body. To get out;
now was impossible, for even Reubena dared not stroke the head of the
monster.
The captive fisherman waited, hop;
ing the shark would go further in so;
as to leave the opening free. The'
huge fish did not move. Reuberia's
agony became intense. Seconds seemed to be hours. At last the shark
passed on quietly into the interior,,
and Reubena was barely able to get
out of the cave and rise to the surface. His associates in the canoe,
who had become anxious for„his-
safety, seized him by the hair and
pulled him in, blood flowing from his
ears, eyes and nostrils. .
A' .'■      Give Goldfish Shade.
A friend was showing me her collection: of goldfish the other day with
great pride.7 The;-tiny:.flsh ,yirere7dart£.'
ing about here and'tnere iii the i-Ieap'
water, and, then resting for awhile,

Some people do not seem to realize
that- it is positive cruelty to keep
these fish in an open vessel without
any shade.
Fish have no lids to shield .their
,-eyes, as we have, and so,cannot en-
'dure a.bright light.' They .suffer i^reat'
ly if entirely exposed; as is evident
-from the way in which they' dash
around and around, sometimes until -
they, are fairly worn out.
'•; Shade can easily-be provided by
placing growing plants, dense enough
to shelter the fish, near the globe in
which they are keptGr by placing a
grotto of rocks in the aquarium itself.
Heroes That Pass Unhonor ed.

mother who sacrifices her pleasure

sickness as in health and in spite
of the difficulties that beset his uphill path— all these and many more
%e" doing" things perh. ps more truly

Agricultural Meetings
at Victoria.
During the week commencing
January 31 st, Victoria will be en
evidence in all matters pertaining
to agiiculture.
On Monday, January 31st, a
meeting of the Secretaries of the
Agricultural Fairs and Associations
of the province will take place.
The main aim and objects of the
Convention are to arrange about
she securing of judges for future
exhibitions so as to compileNa circuit that will enable fairs to be held
on dates not conflicting with others
situated in the same district. Other
matters pertaining to the more
effective carrying out of the annual
exhibitions throughout the province
will be considered, and no" doubt
as a result of such a conference,
much good will accrue to the advancement of agricultural fairs and
exhibitions in British Columbia.
On Tuesday, February 1st, and
the following day, a meeting of the
Central Farmers' Institute will be
held, when all proposals, resolutions, and matters for important
consideration will be placed on the
agenda, and finally dealt with during the Convention. This Institute
is representative of all the Farmers'
Institutes throughout the province,
and all matters pertaining to agriculture and the betterment of the
present condition of the farmer are
laid before the conference for consideration and decision. It is anticipated that many of the Institutes
are furnishing their representative
delegates with proposals to submit
to the convention, and which if
carried out, cannot but have the
best results for practical operation.
On Thursday, February 3rd, the
Annual Convention of the B.C.
Dairymen's Association will be
held, and on the following day the
B. C. Stock Breeders' Association
will be in session. A good programme has been prepared for
both of these meeting, and many
interesting and valuable lectures
will be delivered by well-known
authorities on all matters pertaining
to agriculture.
Nothing succeeds like success,
and it is evident that the knowledge
disseminated throughout the proceedings of these gatherings cannot but have the best possible
results in the further advancement
of the agricultural industry throughout British Columbia.
The C. P. R. Co. are issuing
special excursion ticket at single
rate, and the opportunity afforded
the people from near and far to
combine pleasure with business in
coming to Victoria during the convention is one not often offered
the public. It is to be hoped that
many will avail themselves of the
chance to to hear some first-class
practical addresses, and will also
seize the opportunity to take part
in the discussions which will follow.
Full information and particulars
of the conventions can be obtained
from R. W. Hodson, Secretary-
Treasurer, Department of Agriculture, Victoria, B. C.
The January " Rod and Gun."
With the advent of another year, Rod
and Gun in Canada, published by W. J.
Taylor, of Woodstock, Ontario, is to the
front with a fine issue for January. Running through all their stories—and there
are many of them—is that pleasant outdoor tone which always proves a healthy
tonic, the plentiful supply of which, in
stories and pictures, has given the magazine an assured position. Fishing and
hunting experiences are interspersed with
camping stories, Indian legends, prospecting tales of the far Queen Charlotte islands,
and strange happenings in the backwoods,
ali appealing in some way to sportsmen of
varied tastes and inclinations. In reading
such delightful stories, evevy one redolent
of the actual, one lives over and over
again some of one's own pleasures, thus
obtaining a double measure from the outing which yielded so much pleasure at the
time. To begin the New Year well and
continue throughout in the same good way
the companionship of Rod and Gun should
be secured. If he adopts this course the
sportsman will have continual reminders
throughout the year of his own outings,
and additions to the bright anticipations
with which he looks forward to future
joys. Of these reminiscences and anticipations no one can rob him, but Rod and
Gun adds to both, and makes the year one
continual pleasure, no part of which the
sportsman will lose if he secures its companionship for the ensuing twelve months.
San Francisco Opera Co.
The San Franisco Opera Company which
comes to this City for two nights commencing Friday, January 21st, will present
for the first time here, " The Girl from
Manila," a screamingly funny\ comedy set
to music, adapted from " Turned up," a
farcical comedy by Mark Melrose and Dan
Young, the new stage Director of the
company. " The Girl from Manila " has
all the requirements necessary for a
successful even ng's entertainment. Eualie
Young, the new Soubrette, has a dainty
part in Miss Russell of New York, Capt.
Russell, a gruff but kind hearted old sea
dog, introduce Dan Young to a Kelowna
audience. Gouldson Russell, the juvenile
lead, falls to James Stevens. Amy Leicester
is a scream as a tearful widow. Teddy
Webb as the undertaker, Hearsean Grave,
will prove irresistably funny. The " Girl
from Manila" is full of action from beginning to end, and will not fail to keep
the audience in an uproar of laughter.
'Pretty tough for me"—"The Message
of the Red, Red Rose "—" I'd be a sailor "
—" Grave the undertaker "—" Once upon
a time," and " You are my Lulu," are some
the most important musical numbers.
On Saturday night, the San Francisco
Opera Company will present one of the
late3t and greatest successes, " They loved
a Lassie."
The Calgary Herald says of this play :
" For their farewell performance they put
on " They loved a Lassie,'' and by the time
the curtain rung up, there was not a
single seat vacant in the house. Teddy
Webb was the defaulting husband, who
undertakes a trip to Scotland in search of
recreation, was splendid. " I'm fu' the
noo," together with the massing of the
members of. the San Francisco Company
in the rear, made a very effective picture,
and the song went with a right good swing
that lifted the roof off the house. It was
a great time. Mr. Stevens and Miss Young
as husband and wife sang a very gem of a
duet in the best possible manner. It was
full of charm; true to the spirit of the j
game and of that sort of art that gets an
audience every time. Miss Young is " a '
delightful dancer. As the much wronged
women—that is, wives, Misses Day and
Leicester kept up the fun, prepared to
faint or weep at any moment when they
thought of their poor husbands as drowned
at mid-Atlantic, when at the same time
these errant gentlemen were in Scotland,
overbusy with a little lady who made them
comprise themselves over a ten pound
note. This is the sort of thing the San
Franciscans should give us all the time.
Fun, roaring fun, uncontrollable laughter,
and the spirit of the season condensed
into an hour's musical comedy."

The Cash Was Saoed.
An attempt to thaw out dynamite on a
kitchen stove resulted in an explosion and
the destruction or the residence of J. Guille,
Burnaby. Four men, one woman, and a
child, who' were in the building at the
time, had an almost miraculous escape
from death. The report of the explosion
quickly brought a crowd, but it was evident that no effort could save the building
from total destruction. Mr. Guille, who is
a French Canadian, and speaks only indifferent English, after many efforts managed to make the onlookers understand
that he had $2,000 in a trunk in the burning building, and appealed for volunteers
to help him save his little fortune. At the
risk of their lives a number of men chop-
a hole in one of the walls and rescued the
box, but not before the fire had reached it.
Some of the bills were charred, but as the
numbers are legible, there will be no difficulty in getting them redeemed.
A Neto Gold Venture.
The Okanagan is popularly supposed to
produce fruit only, but this is a mistake.
A recently formed company ia the Black
Hawk Mines, Ltd., incorporated for the
purpose of developing a group of five
mines known respectively as the Black
Hawk, Red Hawk, Night Hawk, Hawk,
Ned Cloud, which are staked upon leads
bearing* very satisfactory- values in gold.
Four leads altogether have been traced
running east and west across these properties, all lying within 200 feet of each
other and all giving fair returns in gold
, -when subjected to tests. Two veins are of
great size and the quartz, which is lively
looking material, when broken into shows
considerable quantities of free gold. Considerable work has been done on two* of
the main veins, and the dump shows ore
ranging in value from $10 up to $215 in
the precious metal. The company just
organized is a development company, and
the money obtained from the sale of the
shares will be devoted to the actual development df the property. It is also moderately capitalized. One advantage which
has a great bearing upon development' is
convenience to the source of supplies, the
town of Armstrong being within eight
miles and Vernon within sixteen miles of
the mine. Skirting the' valley at the foot
of the mountain upon which the claims
lie is the Salmon Arm road, and with the
opening of next season this will be connected up wifh the lower workings, and ii
so desired, shipments of ore can be made
to the Trail smelter for treatment.
Saoed by the Motorman.
A serious and probably fatal accident
was narrowly averted a few days ago on
the B. C. Electric Railway interurban line
between New Westminster and Vancouver
near Edmonds station owing to the alert,
ness of Motorman William Keith. A New
Westminster man named Fred Robertson
was \lying on the track ane would have
been run over and seriously injured, if not
instantly killed,, had not the motorman
seen him. He at once applied the emergency brake. Owing to the slippery track
the car skidded forward until it struck
Robertson's foot, breaking his ankle. 'According, to particulars furnished by the
railway men Robertson was returning from
Vancouver. He got off the H o'clock car
at the power house "and was walking
along the track towards New Westminster.
In  spite  of the  blinding snowstorm, the

along the tract and was keeping a sharp
lookout. Rounding the curve immediately
west of Edmonds station he saw the man
lying on the track where he had apparently fallen.
Worth Ttoq Hindus.
That the experiment of bringing French
Canadians from Quebec as mill workers is
a great success, is the declaration of the
manager of the Fraser River mills at New
Westminster. A few months ago the
management imported 125 working men
from Quebec. This resulted in the dis-
placemenfof 150 Hindus and 60 Chinese.
The Quebecer does the work of two Hindus. The company now proposes to import large numbers of French Canadians
for their lumber camps.

Neto Steamboat for the Columbia
Lakes.
Captain Armstrong, steamboat proprietor
of Golden, intends building a new steamer
of improved design to serve the country
between Golden and the Upper Coumbia
Lakes, thus serving the country as far as
far .as Canal Flat, 150 miles south of Golden.
It is stated that th Canadian Northern may
be interested in the boat, which would
place them in touch with the business of
the whole valley south of Golden through
their branch from the Canoe river to that
point.
Plea for Canadian Naog.
Addressing the members of the Young
Men's club at the Metropolitan church,
Rev. Dr. Chown, after referring to the
present election campaign in Grelt 'Britian
as the struggle between 'privilege and
constitional democracy, made strong
plea in favour of a Canadian navy. He
opposed the giving of Dreadnoughts as not
meeting the necessities of the case. Canada,
he claimed, should have a navy of her
own and should not surrender her autonomy to any power on earth. In conclusion
D.r. Chown spoke of the question of com-
pulsory education as it exists in Manitoba
to-day. The Roman Catholics, he said,
held the balance of power and were opposed to compulsory" education, and that
being so, no party dared make it a real
fighting issue.
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy never disappoints those who use it for obstinate
coughs, colds and irritations of the throat
and lungs. It stands unrivalled as * remedy

Papal Marriage Decree.
The pope recently issued a decree granting important civil'and religious powers to
Roman Catholic bishops throughout the
world. The main feature of the decree is
its relation to the marriage question, which
has been a leading subject inthe church
for more than a year and second only to
the recent modernization, movement. The
decree issued gives the bishops the right
to settle questions relating to the marriage
of Catholics without reference to the pope.
A year ago the pope forbade the marriage
of Catholics to non -[Catholics except by
Catholic priests.
Gooerntnent Arrange With C.N.R.
Negotiations have been concluded between the Canadian Northern Railway and
the McBride government. Details will not
be made known until the bringing in of
the bill in the legislature. "A clause in
the proposed contract provides thatthe
construction of the line'in British Columbia
must begin within ninety days of the
passage of the ratification measure bjr the
provincial legislature. As a matter of fact,
actual work will probably be started long
before that period expires," said Col. A. D.
Davidson, land commissioner of the C. N.
R., who returned recently from Victorias
he has been assisting his colleagues in the
deliberations.
Nelson Wants Minister.
At the annual meeting of the board of
trade, held at Nelson, F. A. Starkey
was re-elected president for his fifth .year'
E. M. Beeston was unanimously re-elected
secretary, and H. G. Goodeve treasurer.
The o ly contest was for vice-president, in
which J. L. Buchan defeated Thomas G.
Proctor. A resolution was passed' urging
upon the premier the advisability of giving
Nelson representation in the cabinet and
appointing the president as the-board's
representative on a'joint delegation from
the council and the board of trade to wait
on the premier and urge the desires of the
city for cabinet representation.
Meteor Palls iii North Dakota.
A meteor 15 inches in diameter and
weighing many tons buried itself six feet
in the earth near Carrington Saturday. For
a full minute before it Struck it illuminated
the entire surrounding country and its
impact wtth the earth produced vibrations
like those' from an earthquake. The
meteor remained hot for 24 hours after it
struck the earth. It has now the appearance of dull red ore.
Marconi For Canada.
William Marconi has arranged to sail for
Canada January 20 to supervise a new
installation of his transatlantic apparatus at
Glace Bay in place of that destroyed by
fire. The station at Cliffden on the Irish
coast -has been re-equipped, and Mr.
Marconi is confidently looking forward to
the resumption of his transatlantic wireless
service in the course of next month. Experience in the actual working of his system .before the destruc.ion of the Glace
Bay apparatus has given occasion for
valuable observations which will be utilized
in the re-equipment of both the Irish and
Canadian statiocs.
Brakeman Pound Dead.
C. F. Norris, breakman on the C. P. R.,
was found dead here Friday night, on the
top of a wertbound freight train. The
circumstances seem to indicate, that his
head struck the entrance to a snowshed.
Deceased, who was a prominent member
of the Revelstoke Cricket club and
musician, leaves a widow and child.
Wire Caused Death.
The death . under tragic circumstances
took place at Coal creek recently of Wm.
Alexander, about 38 years old, employed
as driver boss in No. 5 mine, belonging to
the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co. He was
engaged in splicing a wire rope on Friday
last and by some means a piece , of wire
stuck in his knee. This began to fester.
By Monday, (5 days after), Alexander was
not able to put his foot to the ground. Dr.
W. S. Workman recently administered
chloroform and took the wire out of the
knee, when it was discovered that Alexander was dying. Artificial respiration was
immediately resorted to, but without avail
Dr, Bonnelf from Fernie was immediately
phoned for, but death arrived before him.

Animals Used by Firesetters — Rati
and Mice Fond of Matches.
The latest trick in burning up ft
building for profit, "touching it off,"
the firemen call it, comes from Liver-
Eool, Eng. Fires in the cotton ware-
ouses came so regularly that the authorities became convince 1 Jhat the
fires were purposely se_. A strict
watch was rewarded by tiie firemen
catching a fire in its incipiency and
extinguishing it where it started.
A search was then made for evidence, and the first thing discovered
was a small hole iu the wall. A few
bricks had been taken out, but the
opening was not large enough to admit a person. The next thing that
turned.up was a cat. This solved the
mystery of the hole in the wall, as
well as the manner of setting the fires.
Puss still had attacked to her tail
some half-burned rags. The incendiary simply put the cat through the
opening, lit the stuff tied to her tail,
and the cat naturally ran wild through
the warehouse, carrying a trail of fire
behind her. A fire in a cotton warehouse set in this manner usually
meant a total loss and poor puss was
burned, destroying the evidence.
Certain "firemakers" have been
known to use a dog aa a firebug. First
tlie dog was tied to the leg of a table
on which was placed a kerosene oil
lamp. After leaving the room and
closing the door behind him, the fire-
maker called to the dog. Making
every effort to respond, the faithful
animal naturally pulled and tugged at
the cord attached to the table. If he
pulled hard enough he upset the table
and threw the lamp on the floor and
the blaze was started.
The rat has been used to start
fires, but often with disastrous consequences to the man who used the rat.
A stable keeper who was troubled with
rats got a grudge against the animals
and thought it would be a fine thing
to pour kerosene oil on a rat and light
it. The rat promptly ran back to its
nest in the stable, the most natural
thing for it to do, and set fire to the
stable, and shortly the stable keeper
was gazing on a pile of smoking rubbish as the result of his experiment.
Of course everyone knows that rats
and mice are regular firebugs. A certain scientist once made an experiment to find out if rats would gnaw
matches. For two weeks a rat was
kept under watch and matches placed
with its food. It was not long before
it was seen chewing the matches, and
once it got a taste of the phosphorus
it began to like the matches, and in
chewing them set them off.
Mice also like phosphorus, because
it is sweet, and they will steal
matches to use them in building their
nests. In one case in which a floor
was opened up a collection of heads
of matches was found laid aside in a
corner for food, while the sticks had
been used in building the nest. Birds
have also been responsible for fires,
but not actually causing them like
the rats and mice. The birds are fire-
makers through building their nests
in places where sparks from a chimney, for instance, -fall in the straw and
dry stuff used in building the nest.
^Subtraction That Adds.
The air was sweet with the smell of
. willow .wood, and the artificial limb
maker was adjusting a delicate metal
spring in a superb leg.
. "This one of a pair of legs," he said,

The Appreciative Subscriber.
This letter, which was received by a
western editor, is an example of that
spirit of getting something for nothing
which animates many persons:
"Please send me a few copies of the
paper which had the obituary and
verses about the death of my child a
week.gr so ago; also publish the inclosed clipping about my niece's marriage. And I wish you would mention
in your local columns, if it don't cost
anything, that I have a couple of bull
calves to sell. Send me a couple
copies of the paper this week. As my
subscription is out, please stop my

money on a newspaper."

Military Tactics.
So far as history gives us any in-
formation on the subject, the father of
"tactics," in the military sense, was
the great.Theban General Epaminon-
daB, who at the famous battle of
Leuctra, B.C. 371, fought between the
Thebans and Spartans, for the first
time introduced the scientific mode of
fighting. Prior to that time the uni-
versar rule was for the opposing
armies to face each other and fight it
out by sheer brute force and bulldog
tenacity without any particular regard for scientific principles.
A Startler.
Thomas K. Beechcr once prefaced
a sermon preached at Plymouth for
his brother with the startling intimation: "All those who have come here
to worship Henry Ward Beecher will
now retire. All thoso who have come
to'-worship! God will remain." ?

At a meeting of the of the License
Commisssioners, held on Friday
morning last, the commissioners
agreed to exponge from the minutes
of the meeting held in the court
house the motion passed that the
Royal Hotel license should be
cancelled. Chief Hidson laid a
complaint against the license being
granted ; again the complaint being
that Mr. Wheeler was neither owner
tenant, nor in any way interested
fn the hotel. *"
Mr. Wheeler applied for* his
license for the Royal Hotel last
Friday, and a renewal was granted.
He immediately applied to the
mayor for a temporary transfer to
Messrs. Lavigne and Dunk.

A report is to hand that bathing
has started at Summerland —at
least that is the way our informant
puts it. The bather, Mr. Washington Jones, took an involuntary
plunge into the lake in landing
from the S.S. Okanagan last Tuesday morning at Summerland, falling into some eight feet of water.
A life belt was immediately thrown
him, enabling him to keep afloat
until he was rescued, still hanging
on to his pipe and the small grip
he was carrying at the time. "Half
drowned he was brought to the
shore, and when a bystander sympathetically endeavoured to loose
his collar from about his neck,
" Don't," said Washington, "can't

Messenger arid Martin, a salt and
pepper stand being the £rst prize.
For the best boy's costume, Master

It was your own fault if you got

Tuesday, for rain was threatening
all day. At noon the thermometer
stood at 44°, and yet we are constantly in receipt of letters from the

home from town. Such letters end
up by words similar to these:
" Hope you are having it a little
milder," or "I suppose you are
nearly in the same fix."—Well we
should smile!

Kelowna Orchestra have certainly
made great strides this year, and
have been heard t? advantage in
everything they have appeared in

Rooting House Plant Leaves.
Perhaps to the amateur the most
interesting way ■ of propagating
plants is that of rooting leaves,
There are quite a number of plants
with which this is possible. Echeve*
ria, Rex begonia and gloxinia are
among the common plants propagated by this means. To root echeveria
the leaf is carefully broken from the
stem and inserted in the sand. It
takes about four weeks for it to start
into growth, when a small bud will
be produced at the base of the leaf.
Sometimes this bud does not start,
but still the leaf will grow. I know
of one leaf which has been growing
in a pot for four years and still has
not made a bud.

Versatility and Cleverness of a
Shrewd Scotch Lad.
FOOLED THE CONNOISSEURS.
--pn
He Poured Forth His Extraordinary
Documents In Profusion to Supply
the Demand and Was Finally Exposed by a Simple Little Slip.
From the days of Isidor Mercater,
who forged letters of the bishops of
Rome with such skill and success that
they were treasured for centuries iu
the Roman archives, to the days of
Ireland, the notorious forger, of Shakespearean plays and letters, and Chatter., n, the clever aud ill fated boy
who tiled miserably iu his attic, there
have never been wanting unprincipled
men who could forge ancient manuscripts so cleverly that leading experts
have been deceived.
But  for  versatility  and cleverness
none of these forgers of past centuries
could  approach  the cleverness  of  a
young Scotchman who years ago produced a long succession of forged manuscripts which completely baffled the
connoisseurs of the world.   The true
and  full  story   of  these   remarkable
forgeries is almost unknown and is so
extraordinary that it may well be told.
It was in  Edinburgh that this incomparable forger practiced his arts,
and it was by an accident that be was
tempted to embark on a career which,
after a spell of great success, involved
him in disaster.    One day the principal of an Edinburgh firm of lawyers
told one of his clerks to clear out several boxes full of old documents, the
accumulation of many years.   Among
them were several documents and autographs the value of which the clerk
was quick to recognize, and he bad no
difficulty   in   finding   purchasers   for
them.   As the supply was limited and
the demand constantly  increasing it
occurred to him to supplement the genuine  documents   with   others  of  his
own manufacture, and as he developed
a remarkable skill in forging and had
already won the confidence of a large
number of collectors he found it easy
to dispose of as many forgeries as he
could produce at very profitable prices.
Many of them were sold to collectors
in different parts of the world, others
were disposed of by auction, and tbe
remainder were pawned and sold as
unredeemed pledges.   These forgeries
covered a very wide range and included autographs and letters by Cromwell, Mary, queen of Scots; James VL,
Prince Charlie, John Knox, Rob Roy,
Burns, Scott, Thackeray, Carlyle, Salisbury,   Gladstone,   Lord   Nelson   and
many other men of note as well as
vast quantities of Jacobite correspondence, fc
So cleverly were the forgeries executed that the. largest purchaser of
Scott's letters was a gentleman who
as a boy had carried most of the great
author's manuscripts from Abbotsford
to his Edinburgh publishers and was
as familiar with Scott's handwriting
as his own, and tbe head of tbe firm
that published Lord Byron's works
purchased forty-seven letters purporting to be Lord Byron's for the. sum of
£125 7s. 6d. A very large collection of
these manuscripts was purchased for
a sum of over £4,000 and presented to
the Lenox library, New York, where
tbey were for some time regarded with
reverence as the chief treasure of the
library, and another collection was
presented to the city of Edinburgh.
Although these forgeries were poured on the market in such profusion, no
suspicion seems to have been aroused.
They -were accepted without question
by the experts and found ready purchasers at large prices. Whether the
forger's success made bim careless or
whether it was due to one of those remarkable oversights to which the most
skillful criminals seem liable and
which bring their career to a close, the
forger was at last exposed through a
mistake of which such a clever man
should scarcely have been capable.
Among the many forgeries he produced a poem signed by Robert Burns.
It was called "The Poor Man's Prayer" and opened with this stanza:
Amidst tbe more Important toll* of state.
The counsels laboring In the patrlotlo
soil;
Though Europe from thy vole* expect her
fate,
And thy keen glance extend from pole
to pole.
This poftm, which consisted of nineteen verses, might well have escaped
detection with tbe rest but for the
fact that a gentleman to whom tbe
poem was shown discovered .the identical verses in the London -Magazine
of 1766 in a poem addressed to the
Earl of Chatham by one Simon Hodge,
laborer. i  .
Thus it appeared that if the verses
were actually written by Burns the
poet must have opened them under
-the pseudonym of Simon Hodge at tbe
very immature age of a poet of sevao
years. Suspicion once aroused, doubt
was at once cast on the hundreds of
other documents which had emanated
from the same source. The Lenox collection was submitted to the experts
of the British museum and pronounced
••a worthless lot of forgeries," and collectors all the world over awoke to the
painful discovery that their treasures
of old manscrlpts Were scarcely worth
the paper they were written on. The
forger's career was brought to a sudden termination. He was brought up
for trial and sentenced to a term of
Imprisonment thus closing n career of
■forgery which for dnrlng. cleverness
land success has perhaps never boon
