Associated Boards of
Trade Annual Meeting
Representative Gathering of Business Men From all
Valley— Many Important Measures Taken Up.
€*>
Parts of
The Associated Boards of Trade
met yesterday afternoon in the
Rowcliffe Hall, the meeting starting
soon after the afternoon's boat had
departed. The delegates attending
were : Enderby, Mr. A. E. Taylor;
Armstrong, Messrs. H. B. Morgan
and A. E. Sage; Vernon, Messrs.
W. Megaw, J. T. Reed, and H. P.
Lee; Kelowna, - Messrs. P. Du
Moulin, J. W. Jones, and R. B.
Kerr; Peachland (not represented);
Summerland, Messrs. J. Ritchie
and C. H. Cordy; Penticton, Mr. J.
M. Steorms.
Mr. Henderson of Vernon occupied the chair, and after order had
been called the report of the secretary, Mr. Dickson was received.
The chairman then appointed
the following to act as a committee
on resolutions: Messrs. R. B. Kerr,
Cordy, Sage, Megaw, and Steorms.
Mr. "Dickson next read a report on the finances which showed
a balance of $61.45. The report
dicLnot include this year's expenses.
The chairman, in addressing the
meeting, said that although he had
little to say with reference to the
work of the Associated Boards he
would like to draw some comparisons between various places in the
valley as he had known them once
<3nd what they are at the present
time. "The valley has-grown up
by leaps and bounds," he exclaimed, "and that progress I put down
to the Work done by the various
Boards of Trade. Some' time ago,
when the local "boards of trade
were not in existence, I had occasion to take a visit "to Kelowna.
"The boat at that time was a
little local affair named the Penticton and it took two days to
make the trip from Okanagan
Landing to Penticton.
"When I reached KeloWna^fter
a very stormy passage, I found
only two stores, one owned by
C. Mairs the other by Lequimes.
"To-day I came by the magnificent C. P. R. steamboat the Okanagan and step into a town with
magnificent business blocks, and
cement pavements showing a prosperous and up to date growth.
"At that time Peachland was not
thought of and Summerland was a
cattle ranch. / ►
"The property was mosdy held
by large holders, and the population was very small. Now development has gone on quickly and the
amount invested is well up in mil-
i.      *•
-lions :._._.-_■ _..-._
f He went on to say that the Okanagan valley was one of the best
advertised districts in the province
" owing to the efforts of the various
boards of trade, and he considered
it only fit and proper that the various boards should meet together
to discuss and frame matters for
the general good of the community.'
He suggested that the meeting
should adjourn so as to give the
committee on resolutions time to
go into the various resolutions already before the board.
Mr. Kerr considered the resolutions were drawn up as well as
they could be and that under the
circumstances it would not be
necessary for the committee appointed to go into them. He moved
that the usual procedure should
be varied, and that the business
should proceed. His motion was
seconded by Mr. Reed and carried.
The next question was the electing of officers and after a short
discussion a ballot was taken, Mr.
Henderson being re-elected as
president for the year. Mr. Henderson expressed his thanks, saying
he would do his best for the valley
at large during the year.
Mr. Dickson was nominated and
elected as secretary.
It was then moved by Mr. Cordy
seconded by Mr. Kerr that the
minutes of the last meeting be
taken as read and adopted.   Car.
The Kelowna Board of Trade
was then asked to speak on their
resolutions, which were as follows:
That whereas there- is no law
providing for the inspection of
bees imported into B. C, whereas
strict laws for such inspection exist
in most other parts of Canada and
U. S. A., arid whereas there is
reason to believe ihat bees are
being imported into B. C. f)toms infected points jin eastern Canada.
This meeting petitionsjhe Legislative Assembly of B. C. and. the
Provincial Government to pass a
measure providing for the inspection of bees' imported into the
province.—Left open for discussion
by interested parties who would
be in attendance in the evening.
Moved by J. W. Jones and R. B.
Kerr—Where-- a. KELu, .*• presentation of Okan'ag-.__' v'alllty in
the Prov. legislature is ^ir short of
what the population entitles M to ;
this meeting respectfully requests
the Prov. government and the
Legislative Assembly to sub-divide
said valley into three electoral districts, each provided with a
member.
Both Mr. Jones and Mr. Kerr,
the supporters of the motion, gave
interesting speeches as to why redistribution should be sought after.
Mr. Stevens, (Penticton), said. he
would like to support such a motion
but was not sure how Penticton
would come out. He explained,
that Penticton was in two electoral
districts, part in the Okanagan and
part in the Similkameen; he* would
like tb see the town brought into
one district.
Mr. Ritchie, (Summerland), was
in favour of amending the motion,
so as to read that the Associated
Boards were seeking for increased
representation and not with, the
idea of cutting the district up. The
amendment was put to the vote of
the assembly and was defeated,
the original motion being carried
by a majority of 7 votes to 2.
DuMoulin-Morgan—This meeting urges upon the Post M-fster-
General that it is indispensible that
a mail clerk should be appointed
on the S.S. Okanagan on Okanagan
Lake without delay.—Carried.
DuMoulin - Stevens — That this,
meeting requests the Hon. Minister
of Agriculture to establish experimental stations in the Okanagan
Valley.—Cariried.
A resolution from the Summer-
land Board of Trade was moved
by Mr. Cordy and seconded by Mr.
Kerr! " Resolved, that the provincial . Government be. petitioned to
insert such a clause or clauses in
the forthcoming railway agreement
as will ensure not only the completion of the different lines within
a given time but the completion of
a certain minimum mileage each
year." This was carried, Mr. Megaw remarking that the resolution
reflected great credit on the Summerland Board of Trade.
The following motions were then
submitted by the Vernon board:
" That this Board of Trade request and strongly urge the C.P.R.
to place a large signboard at Sicamous reading, ' Change here for
Okanagan Valley,' and the the
secretary be instructed to point out
to the C.P.R., referring to previous
correspondence, that this would
not necessitate any change being
made on their time tables, etc., in
the way of altering the name of
'Sicamous Junction,' for which
reason the C.P.R. already declined
our request to have the name of
' Sicamous Junction ' changed to
' Okanagan Junction.'"
" That this Board of Trade would
request and strongly urge the C.P.
R. to alter the time of- the departure of the train from Sicamous to
Okanagan Landing in view of the
present unnecessary delay and
great inconvenience caused to the
travelling public, as well as the
delay in the delivery of mails."
"That this meeting strongly recommends that the provincial government arrange a uniform system
of book-keeping for n.unicipalities
under 10,000 population, and appoint an inspector of audits, who
shall be available when required."
The meeting then adjourned for
supper. ......
At 8.30 the convention again
sat, Mr. D. W. Sutherland being
present to speak upon " Bees." He
explained the usefulness of bees in
fruit culture, and said that if the
disease known as "foul brood" was
allowed to develope for one' season
it would spiead rapidly, and the
following year there would be no
bees in the valley. As the bees
would be on the wing early in
March, he considered immediate
steps should be taken to have the
apiaries inspected by the government, and any diseased colony
burned, and the owner recompensed. Should the government
refuse to take steps, he considered
the question of such vital importance that it should be taken up by-|
the local Boards of Trade, and, the
expense of inspection and destruction borne by them.
It was moved by Mr. Dickson
that, the Associated Boards should
ask Mr. Sutherland to write a letter
pointing out the necessity of immediate inspection, and that a copy
of the resolution together with Mr.
Sutherland's letter should be sent
to the Hon. Price Ellison asking
him to take immediate steps in the
matter.
The president then read a tele-
gramme from Mr. Morrison, of
Peachland, regretting his inability
to be present. _.
The following resolutions were
then read: - :_*•'•
Jones-Megaw—That the C. P. R.
be requested to provide a special
sleeping car for the commercial
passengers travelling between' the
Okanagan Landing and the coast.---
Carried. A
That we,. the associated boards
of trade, express to the C.P. R. pur
appreciation of a daily boat service
on Okanagan Lake.—Carried, j
Sfevens-Megaw—That the rates
on canned tomatoes and other
canned goods from Okanagan
points to the Pacific coast, though
reduced by some few. cents last
year, is still some 65 per cent, of
that on the same goods from
Ontario points to said coast: resolved-"—that the Associated Boards
communicate with the C. P. R. and
the Vancouver Board of Trade with
a view to getting this tariff further
reduced and placed on an altogether more satisfactory basis.
Mr. DuMoulin said. he had received word from Mr. Fraser of
the Kelowna Canning Co., to the
effect that the various canneries
were going to have a meeting to
discuss the same subject, and that
he, (Mr. Fraser), had advised the
board not to take the matter up.
It was, however, considered a very
'important measure snumc secretary was instructed to hold the
resolution over pending the collecting of more data in connection
with the matter and after this data
was procured to take steps to place
the lesolution before the GP.R.
That a transportation committee
consisting of 2 members of each
board be established, and that the
boards communicate the names of
their delegates from time to time to
the secretary.
Ritchie-Kerr—That the boards
request the Hon. Price Ellison to
urge upon the government the
necessity of extending the C.N.R.
into the Okanagan valley without
delay.   Carried.
Attention was drawn to the literature being drawn up by public
companies, arid the out-of-date
descriptions of the various towns
in the valley, and the following
motion was carried:
• LeeHSage — Rosolyed, that the
secretary of the Associated Boards
of Trade write the C.P.R. telling
them that in future all information
about the Okanagan will be furnished by the secretaries ofthe local
Boards ot Trade, and that secretary
be'instructed to write to the provincial and Dominion governments
upon the same lines.
A long discussion ensued as to
the Associated Boards getting out
a pamphlet for advertising purposes. It was however the feeling
of the majority present that the
issuing of a pamphlet would not
be practicable, arid a suggestion
was put'forward that an advertise
ment should be run in one of the
papers in England pointing out the
advantages of the valley as a whole
without specifiying any particular
district. The following resolution
was framed in support of the idea:
Megaw-Cordy—Resolved, that it
is advisable for the Okanagan district as a whole to adopt a scheme
of advertising, and with that end
in view, . that. each local board
appoint one member, thus forming
a committee to arrange for same,
their decision to be passed later
by the different Boards of Trade
represented.    Carried.
Mr. DuMoulin moved a vote of
thanks to the secretary, Mr. Dickson
and said that it was time the" associated boards took up the matter
of giving the secretary some remuneration for his services. I^r.
Dickson replied that he would not
accept the position again if a salary was to be  given him, he  pre-
CITY COUNCIL.
ferred to do what work there was
gratuitously, and urged the board
to send work which required attention along to him.
The motion was seconded by
Mr. Cordy, and the assembly responded with heartv applause.
It was then'moved by Mr. Kerr,
seconded by Mr. Megaw, that the
next annual meeting be held at
Summerland.   carried.
It was also decided that if a
special meeting be required, the
same should be held at Enderby.
A vote of thanks was then tendered the president, Mr. Henderson, which again brought forth
applause.
It was finally moved by: Mr.
Megaw, and seconded by Mr. Sage
that the delegates express' their
appreciation to the Kelowna
Board of Trade for the hospitable
way in which they had received
the ' delegates from the various
towns in' the valley.   Carried.
Westbank News.
( From our own correspondent.)
Mr. and Mrs. U, McDougall had
the sad misforune of losing two of
their children in one week. The
first to pass away, being their five-
mbnths-old baby boy, and three
days later, their little daughter,
Emily, aged eight years; the cause
of death in both cases being
pneumonia.
A.special meeting was held at
the townsite school, for the purpose
of electing trustees for this district.
The following persons were elected : Mr. Russell, Sec, Mr. J. Davidson, trustee, and Mr. W. Collins,
trustee. It was decided to re-open
the school on Tuesday, the 25th,
there now being over twenty pupils
enrolled.
A most enjoyable dance was
held in the school house here on
Friday last. Quite a number from
Kelowna attended and all report a
very merry time; made still merrier
by a few comic songs from Mr.
McMinn. The. music which was
supplied by Mr. J. W. Wilkes, of
Kelowna, was so good, that it was
riot until four o'clock that the party
broke up.
^Mrs. J. Curts and Mrs. Geo.
Thompson purpose giving a "Freewill offering tea" on Thursday,
Feb. 3rd, from 3 to 6 and 8 to 10,
for the benefit of the Ladies' Aid
Society.    Everybody welcome.   ^
L. Holman, returned from the
coast last Saturday having won
his lawsuit against P. Prozesky.
The re-count on Local Option,
held at Victoria has been completed
with the exception of Skeena, the
results showing a gain of 265 for
Local Option. The total figures
however will he at least 1187 short
of the 50 per cent, required to
carry the measure.     It is . certain
that Local Option is defeated.

A terrible railroad accident,
carrying with it a large death roll,
(37), occurred at North bay, Ont.,
last Friday. i
At . a meeting of the Council,
held on Monday last, a full attendance of aldermen were present,
with Mayor Sutherland in the
|*chair. The minutes of the previous
public meeting having been read
and adopted, the city clerk explained that letters from the following persons and firms had been
referred to the various committees.
From Mrs. Geo. Sutherland,
referred to the finance committee.
From G. A. Fisher, referred to
the finance committee.
From Jno. Peck, Chief Boiler
inspector, referred to light and
water committee.
From James Bros., referred to
light and water committee.
The   following   accounts   were
referred to the finance committee
to be paid if found correct:

A Mr. A. J. Browning attended,
and stated that he was collecting
advertisements for a booklet that
was to be published at a later, date,
and mentioned that the constable
had charged him $50 for a license
fee. to3 trade in the city. ;He
did not consider that his business
was such as would require a license
and asked that a refund should be
granted^/-A-v; ■,,>..* A~y •'*•
Mayor Sutherland told Mr.Brown-
ing that the by-law called for a fee
of $50, and it was not in the power of the council to repeal such a
by-law in his case. Mr. Brdwning
then retired.
Aid. Leckie mentioned that he
had had a petition handed; into
him, largely signed urging the
council to allow cyclists to ride' on
the sidewalks during the time the
roads were so muddy. He had,
however, forgotten to bring the
petition up to the council chamber.
He had been informed that a bylaw existed that did not allow anyone to ride on the sidewalks, 'but
it had been pointed out to him
that Aid. Cox often ..did, and a
movement had been made tc get
the privilege' extended to the
general public.
Aid. Jones asked that the nights
of meeting be changed from Monday to Saturday, as he had another
meeting of a society on Monday,
with which . he -was_ connected..
After a short discussion, it was
agreed that the next meeting should
be held on a Monday, with the
idea of afterwards altering the
date to suit as near as possible, all
concerned.
Aid. Leckie brought up a question
of a fire hydrant near Colletts'
livery stable, being out of repair.
This was a matter, he considered,
should be fixed immediately. He
explained that he had had a talk
with Mr. Russell over the affair,
and had found that he, (Mr.
Russell), had superintended the
putting down, and that soon afterwards it was found that there was
a crack in the pipe and a bye pass
was put in.
Aid. Jones considered the matter
a very serious one, as should fire
break out in - that locality, the
hydrant would be practically useless. The following motion was
therefore carried:
That a cross T for repairs to 10
inch water pipe, feeding hydrant
at Colletts' corner be procured at
once.
Mayor Sutherland said he had
drafted out a very crude amendment to the Health By-law, but
that it would be in order to read
the addition to the existing by-law
a first time. He explained that by
the new by-law a material saving
of about 2 mills ori the dollar will
be effected on this year's city
taxes.
ANNUAL MEETING
HOSPITAL SOCIETY
The annual general meeting of
the Kelowna Hospital was held in
the Rowcliffe Hall on Friday last,
Mr. T. W. Stirling presiding.
The minutes of the previous
annual meeting having been read
and adopted, the financial statement was read by Mr. G. A. Chick
as auditor. He commented upon
the neat bookkeeping which had
greatly simplified his work of
auditing. -
The president then read the
report of the directors:
, " The directors herewith place
before you for your consideration
the annual statement.
" There is an increase in the
charges for maintenance over 1908
but the increase is proportionately
less than that in the number of
patients treated.
"In 1909 the daily attendances
numbered 2,460, and the number
of patients treated, 159, at a cost of
$2.46 per diem. The corresponding figures for 1908 are: Daily
attendances, 1,395, number of
patients treated, 115, at a cost-of
$2.91 per diem.
" Early in the year the basement
was completed, thus providiug increased accommodation for the
patients. The funds for this purpose were provided bs' the energy
and enterprise of the Ladies' Aid
and the Young Ladies' Aid.
"The Hospital has been most
generously supported during the
past year, both by individuals and
societies, but the; directors feel that
mole systematic canvassing of the
country districts would' result" in
additional recognition and financial
aid for our institution; v
"The directors would recommend that the secretary of the
Society be a salaried official, so
that he may devote a considerable
portion of his time to the affair* of
the hospital. It is thought that the
additional attention paid to col- *
lections and subscriptions would
bring in much more than the
amount of his salary.
"Your directors recommend that
in the future all supplies should be
by tender.
"The directors further• recommend to the new board; that they
should consider the question of
appointing ' a House Physician,
whose dirty it would be tb attend
ticket patients and destitutepatients.
"The directors regret that "we
have lost the services of Mr. Gorrie
who has been our secretary from
the commencement, and until lately
has held that office.A -TTejp feel
that   the   hearty   thanks   of   this
<. '-
Society are due to him for his unselfish devotion to the affairs of the
hospital.
" We desire to thank the City of
Kelowna for the grant of $250
and hope that, in view of the good
work that is being done, and the
advantage the hospital is to the
whole community, that we may
look for increased recognition from
the city in the way of a larger
grant, and that the city may see fit
to give the hospital free power and
light."
The report was endorsed by
those present, Aid. Cox remarking
that he was glad to see that all
supplies would be purchased by
tender, as some dissatisfaction had
been felt over this matter in the
past.
The question of having a paid
secretary was freely discussed; and
it was finally agreed that the meeting were in favor of paying asec-
retary to look after the affairs of
the hospital and to keep the books.
The    following    officers   were
elected for the present yew:
Pres.: W. C. Cameron (proposed)
Vice-Pres.: Mr. Buckland ■•
Treasurer: Mr. WeddelL
Sec: T. W. Stirling (pro tern, until
a paid sec. can be installed) *
Exec. Coma * Messrs. Cameron,
"Buckland, Weddell, Burne, and
Stirling.
It was arranged to meet again at
3 o'clock on Friday, Jan. 28th in
the Hospital.

We have this week received
a communication from Mr.
Michael Hereron in reply to a
letter of Mr. Geo. Stirling which
appeared in our correspondence
column of last issue. Mr.
Hereron's letter, however, is
altogether too personal in tone
to admit of our publishing it,
and therefore, at the risk of
appearing to favor one side
more than another, we are
obliged to withhold it.
This is unfortunate, for there
are many points in Mr. Stirling's
letter which call for criticism,
and still more in Mr. Stirling's
frequently expressed opinions,
both at the Rutland meeting
referred to and occasionally in
these columns, for we are
always ready to publish interesting letters from anyone, no
matter what his opinions may
be, so long as they do not overstep the limitations expressed
in the heading of our correspondence column. It is no
argument against a person to
refuse to listen to him.
It is a mistake, too, because
a person claims to be a Socialist to immediately compel him
to adopt, whether he wishes or
not, the views of all other
Socialists, reasonable or unreasonable. Mr. Stirling may
be a good Socialist, and yet not
wish to endorse the extreme
revolutionary ideas of those
who go under the same name.
There are degrees in Socialism, and there are wise and
unwise Socialists. With such
fundamental principles as the
universal brotherhood of man,
the extinction of class privilege,
the pricking of the bubble of
the' divine right of kings and
lords, the emancipation of the
humbler worker from the
tyranny of capital'and hereditary power, the right of every
individual to a fair chance—
with these things we are in
hearty sympathy, in common,
we believe with most fair-
minded people who think at all
of what is going on around
them.
But Socialism has advanced
far beyond these simple elemental truths, which really are
not limited to the Socialist
creed. Socialists from being
reformers are tending to become levellers and destroyers
—revolution and anarchy are
fruits of the same tree.
Mr. Stirling is credited, according to his letter, with
having said that " it is right to
shoot at a judge if his verdict
is not pleasing to the people."
We believe Mr. Stirling to be
possessed of too much common
sense to make such an absurd
statement, but it would be interesting to know how far he
thinks Socialists would be justified in employing revolutionary methods in the attainment
of their desires.
Are war and bloodshed ever
justifiable? It is a debatable
question. It is no justification
to say that they achieved their
purpose. The end does not
justify the means. We venture to think that if we cquld
hear, as a jury hears a case in
a court of law, all the evidence
for and against any revolution
in history, we should find that
the good it accomplished could
have been reached infinately
better, if not always so
quickly, by more peaceful and
rational means, and without the
untold injury to social progress
and social morality which war
always brings.
We are reminded of the remark of a contemporary, which
claimed that the terrible bush
fire around Enderby last year
was "a blessing in disguise,"
as it had cleared hundreds of
acres of land which might have
remained uncultivated for
years! The disguise was perfect.
Like the poisonous weeds
which spring up in a burnt out
forest, evils unnumbered arise
after the destructive passions
of a nation have been let loose
in a bloody revolution, making
the remedy worse than the
disease.
" If thine eye offend thee,
pluck it out," is all very well,
but such drastic treatment
would be likely to result in still
greater suffering.
VESTRY MEETING.
The general Vestry Meeting of
St. Michael and All Angels' parish
was held on Monday evening, 24th
inst. In the course of his address,
the rector referred to the increase
in the church population, and the
improved attendance at the services,
very noticeable in the case of the
young men. To meet the growing
needs of Okanagan Mission, the
bishop has licensed Mr. R.Gray as
Lay Reader; he will hold fortnightly services in the Mission school
house. There are now two out-
stations where the rector holds
monthly services during the
summer and autumn. The musical
part of the church service shows an
advance under the careful training
of Mr. Watson, who was appointed
organist about five months ago.
To the choir, our special thanks are
due for their service, which is
voluntary; but, too often, it is unkind criticism they get, not thanks.
As the Woman's Auxiliary does
not hold its annual meeting until
March, the rector is not in a position
to make any official statement of
progress, except that the society is
fulfilling all its pledges to the parish, Home and Foreign missions.
The Chancel Guild, in so far as the
annual meeting is concerned is
similarly situated; but they also
have been steadily at work getting
together funds for beautifying the
chancel of the new church.
Mr. W. C. Cameron, people's
warden, read the financial statement for the past nine months. The
Synod's action in changing the
time of holding the Annual parish
vestry, did not prevent him showing a highly satisfactory statement.
During the absence of Mr. F. A.
Taylor in England, Mr. E. M. Car.
ruthers is acting a his deputy. Dr-
Boyce, and Messrs. Stirling and
Bailey, members of church budding
committee showed the completed
plans and specifications of the new
church, prepared by the architect,
Mr. Peters. Work will be started

CLASHING  STARS.
A Greet room Quarrel In Which Marie
y     Roze Triumphed.
Minnie Hsiuck nnd Marie Roze had
quarreled over "Carmen." One nlgbt
"The Marriage of Figaro" was announced, with Uoze as Susanna aud
Hauek as Chi?rubino.       )
"At 3 o'clock that afternoon." writes
Mr. Upton, "Hauek went Into the theater and pre-empted the prima donna's
room by depositing her things therein. _jq hour later Roze's maid reached
the theater and proceeded to the same
room, only to find It filled with the
hated rival's traps. Roze notified the
colonel (Henry Maplesonj. He was
promptly on the scene and began moving Hauck's belongings to the opposite
room and instructing his wife to be at
the theater precisely at 6.
"At half past 5, however, Hauek
sent the chevalier (her husband) to
the theater to see that everything was
right. The chevalier found that everything was not right and ordered Roze's
belongings^ to be removed, replaced his
wife's and had everything, Including
the door, stoutly locked.
"At 6 Roze arrived, prepared to
'hold the fort,' but as she couldn't get
into the fort to hold it she sent for the
colonel, who sent for a locksmith, who
opened the door. Hauck's things were
unceremoniously bundled out At half
past 6 Hauek came to the room to
dress, and, much to her surprise and
to the chevalier's chagrin, Roze was
In there calmly dressing. What passed between them probably no one will
ever know, but Hauek went back to
her hotel and notified the manager
that she would not sing that evening.
And she didn't."—Pearson's Weekly.

THE B0R0B0ED0ER.
A Hindoo Temple Built In Java In the
Eighth Century.
The Boroboedoer unearthed by Sir
Stamford Raffles wben' tbe English
ruled in Java was built by the Hindoos in the eighth century and is by
far the finest example of their work
in the island. Standing on a bill in
the middle of tbe valley, this imposing edifice, covering nearly ten acres,
rises to a height of upward of a hundred feet above tbe summit of tbe bill
It consists of a series of stone terraces built on top of each other In diminishing magnitude so as to leave
circumscribing galleries and crowued
by a vast cupola. Entrance to tbe galleries is gained by four stairways-
north, south, east and west—which
run from tbe ground straight op to
tbe big top terraces, in the middle of
which stands the crowning cupola,
surrounded by numerous smaller latticework cupolas, from which one may
step aside into any of the intermediate
galleries. 9
The whole is built of stone, showing
an immense amount of carving, and,
though there is no genuine inside to
the temple, many of tbe galleries are
covered In, innumerable images ot
Buddha occupying niches or prominent positions on the walls, and tbe
sides of the galleries were paved with
bas-reliefs, indicating the glorification
of this god and other incidents in bis
history. When one considers tbat
there are several miles of bas-reliefa.
alone the work expended on the pyramids of Egypt pales into insignificance before this stupendous undertaking.—Shanghai Mercury-

Wedding Horses.
An old fashioned man who wanted
to hire a team for tbe afternoon saw
a nice pair of bays which be thought
he would like to drive.
"Can't let you have them," said
the liveryman. 'They are wedding
horses."
"What's that?' asked tbe innocent
pleasure seeker.
"Horses that won't shy at old shoes
and showers of rice. Some bones
seem prejudiced against matrimony.
Anyhow they lose their temper if they
happen to be bit by any ot tbe good
luck emblems,tbat are tired after a
bridal couple and run away if they get
half a chance. Every livery stable,
however, keeps two or more horses
that take a more cheerful view of tbe
wedded state. Tbey may be literally
pelted with old shoes without resenting it Those bays are tbat kind.
Tbey are slated to bead a wedding
procession tonight and are resting ap
for the Job."—New York Son.

XPuneral off W. Archie Baker.*!_
The funeral of the late W. Archer Baker,
European manager of the Canadian Pacific
Railway, who died in London, Jan. 16th,
took place at Eltham. It was attended by
many prominent Canadians and shipping
and railway men, including-Sir Thomas
ShaugKnesay, president, an other represent,
atives of the Canadian Pacific Railway, as
well as deputations from the Steamship
Alliance, the Hamburgh American, Allan,
and White Star* steamship companies, the
Grand Trunk and Southern Pacific railroads, Bank of Montreal, J.'O. Smith of
the Canadian government, and B. M. Clarke
of tKe Ontario government. Baron Mount
Stephen and Lord Strathcona, Canadian
high ' commissioner to Great Britiaru also
attended. Over 300 persons in all were
present, and the fllorol contributions were
enormous. There were over_ 160 wreaths
which had been sent by organizations and
friends.      -
Neto C.P.R. European Manager.
Mr. George McL. Brown has been appointed European manager of the C.P.R.
in succession to the late W. Archer Baker.
The new managers a son of Mr, Adam
Brown, of Hamilton, Ont., and most of his
life has been spent in the service of the
Canadian Pacific, he having successfully
filled the positions of general passenger
agent and executive agent for the company
at Vancouver, superintendent of the sleeping and dining car service,.and general
passenger agent of the Atlantic steamship
service. . He was appointed in 1908 to succeed Allan Cameron as general traffic
Agent in London.
. Liner on Fire.
Not one of the 400 passengers brought
from America by' the White Star Liner,
Celtic, knew when they landed "at Liverpool that for days 'hey had been in peril
of that most fearful of .dangers — a fire at
sea. The outbreak was - discovered on
Dec. 22,. when the vessel was in mid-
Atlantic, and the fire was located among
the bales of cotton at the bottom of No. 6
hold. The method of steaming the held
was first resorted to, and tarpaulins were
used to prevent the air reaching the, fire.
Coffer dams were also utilised to support
the bulkheads in the event of the fire extending;. ; These measures had the' effect
of keeping the fire from getting beyond
the smouldering stage.      .   ■
Canada has ho Status.     ,
From an official source in close touch
with the Colonial Office, it is learned [that
some months ago the British. Consul at
Antwerp entered a strong protest against
the Canadian office, which, was opened
there ten years ago, being an advertiser or
carrying on emigration work at a Canadian
Government office, claiming that * the'
Dominion had no status in a foreign'
country like Belgium.' He further asserted
that Canadian interests could only be
represented through the ' highest British
official office at Antwerp.' As an outcome,
of. the correspondence between the.
Colonial Office and Canada, the British
Consul was upheld in his contention under
this.pressure, ihe term, Canadian Govern-
ment office has been "withdrawn from
Canadian advertisements, and on the office
sighs in Antwerp, the words, ' Canadian
Information Office!,' has been substituted. .

Hudson's Bag Route.
, in an interview on the practicability "of
the Hudson's Bay route, Sir Thorns*
Shaughnessy said he did not favour the
extension of the Canadian Pacific Railway
to that region because of the weather
risks. Continuing, Sir Thomas said it was
absolutely impossible to set a term to
Canada's possibilities of grain production.

ahead.

It Is common enough to see a boy
watching cattle to Keep them from

boy to be set to keep the birds off the,
crops. But a watch boy whose duty it
is to keep .a'lookout tor a school of
fish and who sits in a sentry box set
upon stilts is not such an everyday
sight

Thursday, Jan. 27
Rutland News.
(From our own correspondent.)
The recent rain and the open
weather have givfen quite a springlike aspect to the country. The
grass is looking pretty green, while
the lower benches are free from
snow.
The school children have caught
the debating spirit lately, and are
being interested as well as instructed by the introduction of a weekly
debate in which the children are
divided into sides. Last week the
subject chosen was " Town Life
versus Country Life." This week
it is to be " The Horse versus the
Cow."
The Literary Society held a very
successful meeting on Friday last.
A change from the usual program
had been arranged in the way of a
mock trial. The interest of the
folks having been keenly aroused,
the hall was crammed full long
before the proceedings started.
Mr. Dickerson took the part of
judge, Mr. Whiteway, clerk of the
court, Mr. Wigglesworth, policeman, Mr. J. Woolsey and Mr. Mezzic, counsel for the plaintiff, Dr.
Baker and Mr. C. H. Leathley,
counsel for defendant. Mr. W.
Quigley took the part of plaintiff
(Miss Bessy Nolan), who sued
James Overalls (Mr. Jack White)
for breach of piomise. Although
only a very short time had been
spent in preparation, the parts
were very cleverly taken, and the
dignity of the court upheld, the
officials all being in the orthodox
dress. The case was only half
heard, and will be completed
tomorrow (Friday) evening.
The Literary Society are getting
spunky. Having scared the Ellison
society into silence with the recent
challenge, they now seek bigger
game. We understand they wish
.o challenge, through this column,
any three debaters from Kelowna
to meet any three of the society
at Rutland on Friday, Feb. 1 I th, to
debate the subject: '" Resolved,
that in the interests of Canada and
the Empire, Canada should establish a Navy." The visitors are to
have the choice of side.
A public meeting, to which all
residents in the district are cordially invited will be held in the Rutland Hall on Friday evening, Feb.
4th, at 8 -p.m., for the purpose of
forming a Fruit Growers' Association for the Rutland district. Several speakers will be present, including Aid. J. W. Jones, of
Kelowna, and a good attendance
is requested. The rapid growth of
the district, and the increasing
number of farms and orchards
make an association of this kind a
real necessity, and with active cooperation a strong society should
be formed. _.,
Ellison School District.
(From our own correspondent.)
Miss Conlin, of Kelovna, was a
visitor to our district on Thursday.
Mr. and Mrs. Ecclestone, of Dry
Valley, drove over on Thursday.
Willie McKenha. the four-year-
old son of Mr. James McKenna.
was ill for a few days last week.
Between forty and fifty persons,
(young and old), assembled on the
skating rink at Mr. Carney's on
Thursday evening, and appeared
to have had an enjoyable time.
On Tuesday evening an entertainment was given at the school
house, under the able management
of Mr. Bulman, who also acted very
acceptably as chairman. The first
item on the programme was a solo
by Mr. G. Whitaker, whose fine
rendering of an Irish Immigrant's
lament, delighted the hearts of
every Irish man or women present.
Rev. Mr. T hompson, of Kelowna,
gave a lecture on "Abraham
Lincoln." There were several
Americans present, who thoroughly
enjoyed the description of the
varied scenes in this hero's life.
Mr. Thompson dwelt particularly
on the manly virtues which characterized Abraham Lincoln, his
sobriety, his principles of right, his
perseverance and success. But in
trying to point out morals, the
rev'd gentleman came dangerously
near forgetting his role of lecturer,
to assume that of preacher, even to
quoting Scripture, (I trust I may be
forgiven). Mr. Whittaker also sang
in his splendid style, "The Village
Blacksmith," and—after a vote of
thanks had been accorded Mr.
Thompson, the meeting dispersed.

Bill to Amejid Immigration Act.
The Hon. Frank Oliver has introduced
Lis bill to amend the Immigration Act. Its
chief provision is to provide machinery for
the exclusion of undesirables along 3000
miles of the United States boundary. The
bill provides for the establishment of a
board of enquiry to pass upon undesirables.
It also contains provisions for more effectively dealing with Asiatic immigration. No
new principle ia involved, a better means
of enforcement along present lines alone
being provided.
The Anti-Gambling Bill.
The Hon. Adam Beck has been heard
before the committee studying MrY'Mil'ar'a
anti-gambling bill. He considered racing
essential to the development of the thoroughbred. "I believe.Afeaid Mr. Beck,
" that the average decent man who goes to
the races and bets does it for the interest
he takes in the race, whereas the man who
does it all through the winter does it in a
professional sense." Mr. Beck said he
thought it would be an impossibility to
eliminate gambling. Mr. McEachran said
betting was necessary to public attendance
at horse racing, and that horse racing was
necessary to good breeding. The bill was,
he considered, a menace to horse breeding.
Dr. Webster, for the Ottawa Hunt Club,
agreed with Mr. McEachran. He believed
that the length of race meets should be
reduced and racing kept out of the hands
of professional gamblers. Hon. J. S. Hendrie also gave evidence in opposition to
the bill, declaring that racing was necessary to good breeding.

New Steamer Wanted on Fraser.
The people of Lillooet are urging the
provincial government to place a steamer
on the Fraser river between Lytton and
Lillooet. At present the river is difficult
of navigation pwing to a couple of bad
places, says the Ashcroft Journal correspondent, but a little blasting would soon
make it navigable. The co-operation of
the provincial with the Dominion government will be asked for. The need of such
a steamer is imperative for the development of Lillooet s(hd the adjacent country,
and should prove a most profitable investment. *
Contracts for V., V. and fi'
Mr. J. H. Kennedy, chief engineer of the
V.j V. and E. railway, has left for Hope to
inspect the progress of the final location
surveys of the Hope-Abbotsford section.
The contract for the building of both sections on either side of the Hope mountains
awarded to Messrs. J. W. Stewart & Co.,
will be signed in St'Paul this week by Mr.
J. W. Stewart on behalf of the firm.
Wagon Road to Winnipeg.
The Fort William board of trade have
passed a resolution favoring, the building
of a wagon road between the head of the
lake's and Winnipeg. The boards of tra'de
of Port Arthur and Winnipeg will be asked
to co-operate"and if they favor the~project
a conference will be called between the
members of all three bodies and a petition
drawn up asking the government* of Ontario and Manitoba to take up the scheme.
It is felt that a public highway would be of
great benefit to all three cities, and that it
would very greatly assist in the opening
up bf the vast territory that awaits settlement between the centres at the head of
the Jakes and the Manitoba city. An
opinion was expressed tl»at the road ought
to be built, if possible, before the Selkirk
centennial comes off, as if it was in shape
to be used tb used by autos a lot of people
from eastern Canada and the eastern States
would doubtless come up the lakes by
boat bringing their automobiles, and would
then auto through to Winnipeg.
Fined for Buying Moose Meat.
Chas. D. McPhee was summoned before

charge of buying- moose meat from the
Indians for his logging camps at Red Gut
bay. He pleaded guilty and was fined $60

Woloes on the Warpath.
Reports are to hand that owing to the
somewhat severe weather which has been
experienced in the northwest this winter,
wolves have been raiding the farms, and
doing much damage amongst cattle and
chickens. The result is that wolf hunts
are now common in various districts, and
trappers are busy in the woods trying to
get rid of these most unwelcome visitors.

-   A Mysterious Explosion.
A mysterious explosion occurred at
Vancouver recently, and although scores
of people heard it and -many were badjy
frightened, nobody can account for it. The
police were notified, but although they
have rfiade many enquiries, they have not
yet been able to find the cause. The force
of the explosion was great enough to rattle
many houses, and was felt more particlarly
in the residential sections.
Road From Slocan to Nelson.
Among the numerous . petitions- which
will be laid before the legislature during
the early days of the session, is one which
has but recently received the endorsement
of the West Kootenay Farmers' institute,
and bears the signatures of some 200
residents of Slocan City, Perry Siding,
Lemon Creek, Winlaw, Gutelius, Slocan
Junction, Crescent Valley, Bonnington
Falls and Taghun. The first signature appended is that of Thomas McNeish, Mayor
of Slocan, and the prayer of the petitioners
is for the early completion of the government road from Slocan City to Nelson.
May Change Name of Royal City.
At a meeting of the board of trade held
recently, MrT H. C. Stewart Wade recommended thatthe name of New Westminster
should be changed to Westminster. There
is a great deal of feeling in the city that it
would be advisable-'to change the name
and the time now seems opportune as the
Royal Gty is dropping its old charter and
and will now come under the Municipal
Clauses act.
Lauder Welcomed in Vancouoer. .-
_ The officers of the St. Andrew's and

Alex. Morrison, extended a hearty Scottish
welcome to Mr. Harry Lauder, the famous

preciate the honour done him, and: talked
pleasantly with his visitors. He is now
appearing before crowded houses at the
coast. .
Dr. Cook's Claims Turned Down.
The University of Copenhagen examining committee has handed down its final
verdict on Dr. Cook, confirming the previous opinion that Dr. Cook had not proved
he reached the North Pole. The data on
which the original report was based differs
practically in no respect from the original
notebook. There were alterations but
indications that they were made in an
attempt to deceive were lacking. Some of
the members of the consistory still maintain their belief in Cook's honesty, though
branding him false aa a scientist and explorer. Although the university is said to
be through with Cook for all time, the
report that he will be stripped bf his degree persists.
Glass Blowing at Beausejour.
Glass-blowing operations have been resumed at Beausejour, Man., not, however,
in the oldfashioned way, but according to
the -most up-to-date methods. It is true
that the plant has only opened in a small
way as yet, there being but two "shops "
working, but this is prophetic of what may
be, as the working staff will be increased,
and that_yery soon,. .
B. C. Salmon Mentioned.
The commission on conservation this
morning listened to the presentation of
reports by committees named yesterday.
Attention was drawn by Premier Hassard
of Prince Edward Island to the taking of
large quantities of British Columbia salmon
by United States Fishermen in Puget sound
while the fish were on their way to spawning grounds on the American side of the
river. It was decided to get a report on
the subject
Vancouoer Astts for Fisheries
Commissioner.
The British Columbia Salmon Canners*
association has petitioned the Dominion
government for the appointment of a
resident fisheries commissioner at Vancouver. The minister has also beea asked
to right the injustice of a weekly close
season of 24 hours on the Fraser, while
south of the line the prohibited period is
36 hours. Another request is that sockeye
fishing north of the 50th parallel open on
the 15th June, instead of July 1st; while
it ia further requested that the old fishing
boundaries at the mouth of the Skeena be
re-established. A special committee has
been appointed by the British Columbia
Canners' association to investigate the
matter of taxation paid by the fishing and
canning interests to both the Dominion
and the provincial government.

Okanagan Landing. They have

Mr. Blondin, who has the contract for repairing the Str. Kelowna
on the ways here, asks the question
why it is (hat there is a rising and
falling tide in Okanagan Lake.
Mr. John Edger as well. Both
gentlemen say when working beside
the lake or over it, when it is perfectly calm, a difference of several
inches occurs in a short time either
rising or falling. Will someone
explain ? As there are no tide
waters to back up or recede from
it, these gentlemen are at a loss to
understand why they should be
bothered when at work.—Vernon

Mayor Husband, of Vernon, has
tendered his resignation, which has
been accepted, and another election
will be held to-day. The acceptance of the resignation was a
matter for discussion, two of the
aldermen being in favour- of
accepting, and two in favour of not
accepting it. This placed the chairman in the position of being
compelled to give the casting vote,
and Aid. Allen said that it put him
in a very embarrassing position.
He had given the matter a good
deal of thought, and was convinced
that Mr. Husband was guiltless of
any wrong intention in this matter.
He felt sure that he^-did not wish
to occupy the chair against the
wishes ofj'the people, ani would
welcome a straightforward contest.
He thought that under the circumstances, and in view of the feeling
expressed at the public meeting,
that Mr. Husband had done the
right thing in resigning, and fell
compelled to vote for the motion
accepting his resignation, which he
accordingly declared to be carried.

At the Vernon Board of Trade
meeting, Mr. Vallance, one of, the
nominators of Mr. Husband for
mayor, was called upon to explain
his position in connection with the
recent civic elections. Mr. Vallance
said it was perhaps unusual for an
elector to have his right questioned
to nominate any man. He, however
"would state that he did so in order
to be loyal to his city, and his very
great desire to see it progress.

As a result of some very interesting

a view to determine the rplnlive
Strength of right ami left limbs It has
-been ascertained that over 50 per cent
of the men examined bad the right
arm stronger than the left. Ki.tO per

the left arm stronger than the rightr
Of women 40.90 per cent bad the right
arm stronger than the left, and '24.50
per cent bad the left stronger than the
right. In order to arrive a' the aver

Mr. Reed has gone through the
book with Mr. Teddy Webb, when
he was down here last week with
the 'Frisco Co. Mr. Webb was in

About 30 members and adherents in connection with Bethel
Church, Benvoulin, met at the
home of Mr. T. G. Speer on last
Friday evening, and presented Miss
Clara Naismith with/ a fur stole and
a gold chain, in recognition of her
services as organist in the Presbyterian Church for the last few
months.
The annual meeting of the
Presbyterian congregation took
place in Knox church on 19th inst.,
at 8 p.m. Reports of the various
organizations were read and
adopted, all being of a satisfactory
and gratifying nature. The financial statements in every case show
balances on the right side. It was.
decided by the congregation to install and maintain the telephone
in the manse for the use of the
pastor and his family. All the
managers were re-elected foi the
ensuing year. The building committee asked the opinion of the
congregation in regard to furnishing
the new church. Circular piers
were decided on, and a bell for the
belfry is contemplated.
The Dramatic Society hold their
second annual concert today in the
Opera House at 8 o'clock. The
programme includes a large number of very fine songs and orchestral selections.
Mr. Woodburn was in town this
week in connection with the government telephone and telegraph.
It is likely that an improved system
will be established between here
and Vernon.
A peculiar noise was heard on
the Vernon wire last week by the
telegraph officials, and soon after
an enquiry was received from Vernon as to the electrical storm which
they believed to be raging here
arid responsible for the behaviour
of the instrument. Upon being informed that there was no storm,
the Vemop officials began to seek
for the cause. About 7.30 the fuse
at this end of the wire " busted,"
and Mr. Millie was then sure that
one of the wires had come in contact with an electric light wire.
This proved to be the case, the
point of contact being near the
CP.R. station at Vernon. The
government instrument at the station was completely burned, and
it is lucky that the whole building
did not take fire. The current
went through-the switch board at
Vernon, temporarily putting the
whole local system out of action.
Miss Cameron arrived from; Calgary last Saturday, and has taken,

The San Francisco Opera Co.
paid a visit to this town on Friday
and Saturday last, and gave; two
plays. On Friday, the ''Girl from
Manila" was produced,! and although advertised as"" ah opera,
proved to be a farce with one or
two musical numbers in it. Moreover, the play'itself was not^to be ''-
compared with the bright little
operetta, "They loved a Lassie,"
which was put on 'the boards on
Saturday. The most of the work
as usual fell to'Teddy Webb, who
was responsible' for the whole
production, and without whom the
the opera company would be at a
loss to carry out a successful
evening's entertainment.

Does Prohibition Pay ?
The following is taken from an article by
George C. Lawrence in the Appleton Magazine.
Economic conditions—in common pari-
ance, " It doesn't pay,"—form' the great
underlying factor of the anti-drink movement, which is primarily neither moral nor
religious, but " a cold matter of dollars
and cents." Steadily man has been forced
to the conclusion that he cannot afford to
drink.
The economic aspects of the anti-drink
movement are many.    There is the all.
important orie of productivity.   Man is, if
you will, simply an engine, and the qties,
tion of running that engine most cheaply
aind efficiently is the question of its highest
productivity—its. gaeatest economic value.
Purchasers of labor—whether the labor be
of a sewer-digger or a Senator—want results  from  the  human machine.   And it
has  been  demonstrated  that the human
machine  run  on  alcohol falls far. behind
that which is not.   No one has ever made
a practical internal explosive engine .'operated by gun-powder, though many  have
tried.   No one has ever evolved an efficient
human machine'working on alcohol; though
millions have tried.
In discussing the aspect of longevity,'Mr.
Lawrence presents some remarkable ngdres
prepared by the eminent English surgeon,
Sir Victor Horsley, Where the average
mortality ampng adult males of all classes
is 1,000, that of saloon-keepers -is represented by 1,642, and of total abstainers by
560. Out of 100,000 inhabitants at thirty
years of age, only 44,000 ordinary perions
reach the age of seventy yeart, whereas
55,000 abstainers do.   Consequently, feck

air.
"Another manner in which tbe peculiar property of this explosive can be
demonstrated is by scattering a small
quantity of the dry powder over a
sheet of clean pnppr It then resembles pepper and only needs a few
sharp breaths of the manipulator—
Just sufficient to make them roll—to
cause each speck to ignite and explode, meantime giving off a long, thin
column of dense purple smoke. If a

STILTON  CHEESE
oning the population of the British Isles at
44,000,000, it is evident that if they were
all abstainers the kingdom would be the
gainer every year by more than ..4,000,000
work years; and figuring,the average
animal earning capacity at $500, temperance, if adopted in England'for economic
reasons, would increase the labor output
by $2,200,000,000 annually I  '
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is not .a
common, every-day cough mixture. It is
a meritorious remedy for ail the trouble-

It Differs In the Making From the Or-
' dinary Cheese.
Stilton cheeses* differ from ordinary
cheeses In the method df manufacture.
Bach Stilton  is  made  In a circular
mold, or vat two feet depp and about
nine Inches in diameter, perforated at
tbe sides-and bottom.   Wben the milk
has been turned into curd by means of
rennet It is. transferred into the rat,
which is lined with a coarse woven
cloth, with a ladle.   When a thlnlayer
of curd covers the bottom of tbe mold
a little dry salt is sprinkled over it
This Is supposed  to create the blue
mold often found in Stiltons.   Then
more curd Is added in layers until tbe
vat Is full. The-whey gradually drains
through tbe clotb and out of the holes
into the pan in which the vat stands.
After the curd;has stood for twenty-
four hours a tin disk Is laid on the
top and a weight applied to hasten the
expulsion of the whey.    When quite
firm, the cheese is removed from the
vat and placed on a shelf to dry. After
some days the clotb is taken off aud
the cheese is left to ripen. In a special
room, the temperature of which never
varies.—London Answers.;

it said to me In Urm tones: "Let roe

given only a single year of lite.: I, am
a little oak."

.BIRDS'  NECKS.
It's   the   Number   of" Bones   In   Them
That Makes Them Flexible.
Tbe flamingoes were making their
afternoon toilets in the big By Ing cage
at the tiroiix zoo the oiher afternoon,
says a writer lu a New York paper.
A crowd of children aud grown people
were looking ou anil exclaiming- with
admiring wonder at tbe way these
birds were twisting their long necks
about into all sorts of corkscrews and
curves when one of the ornithological
experts came along and stopped to
watch the performance.
"It's the larger number of borifes in a
bird's neck, not the length, that make
it so flexible," he remarked. -'There
are twenty-three bones in the neck of
a swan, for example, and a few more
in that of tbe flamingo. It seems tbat
tbe smaller tbe animal organism the
larger the' number of neck bones. The
giraffe, for instance, bas ouly seven
bones in bis long neck, which has *a
reaeb of nearly twenty feel from tbe
ground. That 'little while throated
sparrow over there Is only three Inch
es high, but he bas fourteen boues In
his neck and can almost scratch the
back of his bead with bis bill. The
swan bas twenty-three neck bouee
and swings bis bead about wltb even
greater freedom than a snake.''
THE  PLEBEIANS.
Their Secession From Rome and Their
Rise to  Power.
Plebeians were the commons of
Rome, who were originally forbidden
all political rights. They were for the
most part poor and were not allowed
to intermarry with the patricians.
They served In the army without pay
and were sold Into slavery for debt
and could even be cut Into pieces for
distribution among their creditors.
Finding their condition intolerable,
the plebeians in 497 B. C. seceded to
Mons Sacer, near Rome, where they
resolved to build a new city. But this
step so alarmed tbe privileged classes
that they granted to the commons the
right of annually choosing from tbeir
own numbers two magistrates, called
tribunes, with power to protect them
against the aggressions of tbe patricians.
After the lapse of about 200 years
the disabilities of the plebeians were
almost entirety removed, and between
the years 356-300 B. O. they secured
the dictatorship, the censorship and
the praetorsbip as well as Ibe right to
be pontiff and augur. Thus the Roman republic, after two centuries of
existence, Anally secured a democratic
form   of   government   _

8weat and Perspire.
It Is possible to tell almost exactly
wben tbe more elegant "perspire"
drove out the vulgar "sweat." According to a writer In the London Gentleman's Magazine In 1791, "for some
time past neither man, woman nor
child in Great Britain and Ireland of
any rank or fashion bas been subject
to the gross form of exudation which
was formerly known as 'sweat.' Now
every mortal, except carters, coal
heavers and chairmen, merely 'perspires.' For these twenty years past
the word 'sweat' has been gradually
becoming more and more odious."
Before 1770 or so "perspiration"
commonly meant an Insensible process,
"sweating" the grosser variety thereof. In one of his sermons Wesley remarked that "during a night's sleep a
healthy man perspires one part in four
less when be sweats than when be
does not" That would be meaningless today.
Queer 8ort of Borrow.
He was displaying wltb much pride

"Whatl" a listener exclaimed. "Keep
a dollar from sentiment and go hungry and sleepless?"
"I didn't say so." tbe other replied.
"I never went tbat far. You see,
'when I'm. so bard pressed I use the
coin as collateral. 1 borrow another
dollar and give this one as security—
to be held till called for, Queer sort
of borrow, Isn't it? But tbe coin's too
good a friend to desert." i
Identified Her.
A story of lovely woman's ability to
rise superior to those petty details
which so often hamper, limit and nullify tbe operations of any mere man is
told of a Harrison woman who tried
to bave a check cashed at a bank
where she was not known, says tbe
Newark Call.. The usual remarks were
made by tbe cusbler concerning the
need of Ideutltk-iitlou, to which the
woman Immediately replied: "Ub, well,
