Aid. Harvey reported having
fully .dismissed the question of
dredging Mill Creek, and had found
that the cost would be $1,500.
This was considered too expensive
and it was decided not to have the
work done. He had advise the
government of the decision.
Aid. Jones reported upon having
discussed the question of appointing a building inspector, and the
committee had decided that Aid.
Cox should be again asked to act
as inspector this year,

take the responsibility- upon his
shoulders this year, and would
have sooner seen the committee
appoint a responsible man outside
to look after the work. However,
if it was the wish of the committee
that he should act, he would agree
to accept the position. The mayor
therefore appointed Aid. Cox to
tKe position for the present year.
A letter was read from Mr. Payn-
ter, postmaster at East Kelowna,
offering his services as police
magistrate, the mayor suggesting
that the appointment should be
Aid.  Jones  suggested  that  the
council should take some steps to
^find Out the qualifications of • the
' applicant, as he was unknown to
the majority of the aldermen.
The mayo1 said that there was
very little choice over the applicants
as Mr. Poynter's application ,:was
the only one received, -
Aid. Stirling stated that the applicant v/a8 a solicitor, and was in
some way connected or acquainted
with Earl Grey. He had been in
the valley for about a year, and
was at present running the post
office on the bench Jand. -
The appointment of the various
commissioners was then read :
Licen.e commissionersappointed
were Mayor Sutherland, Aid. Jones
and Dr. 'Boyces.
Police commissioners appointed
were Mayor Sutherland, Aid.
Leckie and F. M. Buckland.
A letter was then read, enclosing
a motion of the Vancouver City
Council, asking the Government
to take over the telephone systems
throughout the province, the council being asked to endorse the
motion. .  '
"That this council of the City of
Vancouver in regular meeting
assembled hereby declares its approval of the principal of public
ownership and operation of all
telephones systems, and that owing
to the present nature of the telephone system now in operation in
B. G, it would be preferable for
their ownership and operation to
be under direct management of the
provincial government. This council therefore would ask the prov.
government to take into careful
consideration the acquiring of all
telephone systems in the province
and operating same in the public
iintsScSg^ and that a copy of this
resolution be sent to the Premier
of B.C. and to each of the local
Aid. Leckie reported having
made enquiries in the matter,- but
stated that he had not received the:
desired information. It was moved

The mayor asked Aid. Harvey
if it was not his wish to engage a
man by the month to do road work
and to repair sidewalks.
Aid. Harvey replied that such
was his intention, and that he knew
a man who could do carpentry
work and could fix the sidewalks.
A motion was put forward
authorizing the chairman of the
board of-works to engage a man,
the question of salary to be left in
his hands.
Upon motion, By-law No. 70,
being an amendment to the'Health
by-law, was reconsidered and finally
Mr. Milligan attended and asked
that permission would be given
him to enclose the verandah outside
the Royal Hotel with plate glass.
It was requested that Mr. Milligan
should make out plans and refer
the matter to the building inspector.
Mr. Milligan asked that a speedy
decision should be arrived at. as he
wished to go ahead with his work.
"The mayor said that if the plans
were left with the city clerk the
matter would be taken up at the
next committee meeting and a
decision arrived at
Mr. Buckland attended and asked
that the council 'would supply the
hospital with free light and power,
and that the question of a further
grant should be taken into consideration.
The mayor explained that the
question of grants would be gone
into at an early date, and that the
question of free light and power to
the hospital would be taken up
then. The band had approached
him for a grant of $300. He
thought that the question of supplying free light could be met by
the council granting the equivolent
by way of additional grant.
The meeting then adjourned, to
meet again on Saturday next, at
8 o'clock p.m.        . i 7.

Chief Hidson Resigns
" Taking one consideration with
another, a policeman's life is not a
happy one!" Chief Hidson has
managed to bring down upon his
head: a storm of indignation over
(lis unlucky and mistaken arrest of
a young girl last Sunday. It is
claimed that he used unnecessary
violence, and petitions have been
circulated fpr his removal. The
police commissioners decided that
he was within his powers in what
he did, but other complications
arose, with the result that Hidson
-has sent in his resignation.

small hall on Feb. J 6th, when Mr.
Sutherland will give his lecture
on "Bees." .     ,
Mr. Maxwell Smith, late fruit in
spector, announced a movement
for the holding of the first national
apple show next November at
Vancouver. The sum of $25,000
was required and he suggested
that this be voted by the provincial
and Dominion governments and
the city in which-the show was to
be held. There would be many
exhibits which would be a great
advertisement for the province.
This announcement was the
the cause of much discussion, and
resulted in a resolution being passed endorsing the idea of a national
apple show, and recommending
that the first meeting should be at
The establishment of local demonstration farms was discussed
at some length, it being pointed
out that such farms would be a
.great help to the. newcomer, as
We|l as those already interested in
ihe province, and would supply
information that at present has to
;tb Ke sent away for. *
7 A resolution was carried that the
womeh's institute receive a grant
the same as is given to the farmers*
Many other important measures
were dealt /with, including the
bonusing of stallions for the improvement of horses; the reduction
of freight charges - to the prairie
provinces; the purchase and distribution ot clover seed among the
farmers; the enforcement of the
noxious weeds act; the restriction
of the disposal of crown lands, tp
purely non-speculative purposes;
instructions as to the use or explosives;
the giving of a bonus for the destruction of
crows; the election of advisory boards in
each district to assist the road superintendent,-and the installation of a system of
telephones in rural districts.
A - resolution was proposed that the
government should take steps to prevent
nurserymen from selling trees not true to
name.. The chairman pointed out that
this Was already provided for, as a nursery
doing this was liable to lose the $2000
which each had to deposit with the gov-
eminent, as a guarantee of good faith.
A recommendation was also made that
the government place a bounty of 3 cents
each on gophers and moles. Mr._T. G.
Speei* speaking stron'giy in favor of such
a measure. Others however were of the
opinion that the pest was' not serious
enough for a bounty, and the resolution
was lost by a small majority.
Mr. Speer's resolution with resp.ctto
the cases of. foul brood in the bees of this
district and requesting the Department of
Agriculture to make a thorough inspection
was heartily endorsed by the meeting?.
Tobacco growing in Kelowna and the
growth of the industry was inttoduced
through a resolution proposing that the
administration shoul appropriate $500 for
the payment of an expert for the instruction of the farmers of the Okanagan in the
cultivation of tobacco. It was stated that
the industry was rapidly growing in this
district, and that over two hundred acres
were to be devoted to it this year. 'Mr.
Mathieson, the seconder of the motion,
said that experts had declared that British
Columbia tobacco was as good as anything
grown in the States, and that it was bound
to become an important industry. The
only thing was to acauaint' farmers of the
province, who knew little or nothing about
it, with the best means to be adopted in
order to handle it successfully. He thought
that the proposal was one worthy of en-
donation. Others however were ofthe
opinion that if experimental stations were
established they would supply the necessary instruction, and the motion was not
Mr. A. R. Davy has purchased
the livery barn belonging to Cal.
Backwood, and has installed a
number of fresh horses which he
will let out on hire. Mr. Davy is
going largely into the draying
business and has signified his intention of putting on an extra force
in this direction.
The regular monthly meeting of
the Board of Trade was held last
night in the Rowcliff Hall, a very
small attendance being present.
Mr. P. DuMoulin, who occupied
the chair, expressed his regret at
not having been present at the last
meeting, and thanked the members
of the board for having placed him
in the position of chairman for the
present year.
The secretary, (Mr. Kerr), then
read correspondence from the
The secretary of the Associated
Boards of Trade, enclosing minutes
of general meeting.—Filed.
From the Dept. of Agriculture, re
packing school.—Filed.
Letters were also read enclosing
the rates and taxes due on the
Idaho property and also two letters
re advertising, were turned over to
the publicity committee.
The first matter to be taken up
was the question of holding a
packing school here, it being pointed out that the department were
willing to supply the teacher if the
board of trade or some other body
would supply the building, the
pupils and the boxes.
Mr. T. G. Speer reported having
taken the matter up with Mr.
Winslow, who happened to be
travelling with him; back from Victoria and he had stated.that it vas
required to have fifteen pupils before the school could start,.and
that these pupils had to be looked
fprby the body who were engineering the project at this point. If
these fifteen pupils could be gotten
together, the school would start on
the 24th inst.
^7He explained that Mr. Winslow
would be expecting a reply to his
invitation to establish school on
the morrow. The . great question
before the meeting seemed the
question of getting together the
fifteen pupils, and it was decided
to leave the matter in the hands of
the horticultural and agricultual
committee to make the necessary
enquiries and arrangements.
Mr. DuMoulin suggested that all
real estate literature issued by the
various firms in town should be
endorsed by the board, so as tp
prevent conflicting statements being
made by the various pamphlets
issued. It was decided to leave
this matter to the publicity committee.
Mr. Speer suggested that as Mr.
Scott, deputy" minister ot agriculture, and Mr. Metcalf, a fruit expert,
had expressed their desire, to pay
the town a visit on the ,4thiof March
and would also, like to address the
members of the board of trade,
that the members should turn out
and give them a good hearing, and
at the same time give them a lunch
upon their arrival.
It was pointed out that the- persons in question were coming at
the instigation of the Farmers'
Institute, and that all entertaining
should be left in the institute's
Mr. Speer also reported that
by agreement at Victoria, a man
would be sent by the department
to thoroughly inspect the bees here
and in the province. ■"*•;-■
A long discussion then1- took
place upon tobacco, it being considered that it was just as important
to encourage the cultivation of
tobacco, as it waa of fruit.
At this' point Mr. Kerr got up
and remarked upon the numerous
letters he was getting, asking for
news and the: rsources of the
valley. He had had on an average
of one letter a day and many
Instances he had beeh asked if it
was possible to grow enough to
obtain a revenue off the land
during the time that young orchards
were maturing. He wished to ask
if it were possible to cultivate
enough tobacco between the trees
to bring in enough revenue for a*
man to live on until the orchard
was in bearing. He instanced one
letter he had received from a man
who wished to know if it was
possible to make any headway
with a capital of about $5,000, and
asked if he could confidently .
recommend: a man to come to
Kelowna with that small amount
of capital, and to engage in fruit
Mr. Holman said he would advise
such a man to come at once, for
even with that small sum he could
take up sufficient good .land to
start the cultivation of tobacco, ao
as to derivte a revenve from the
land in the first year.
Asked about the possible revenue that could be obtained from the
growing of tobacco, Mr. Holman
replied that he had known a man
clear $700 in the first year off six
acres of land.. Another party he
had handled the crop for had
made $35 -an acre. This party did
not touch the crop themselves, and
paid a high price for room in the
storage sheds. They had, moreover, hired all the implements, and
paid good prices; Another man
had grown tobacco between the
five-year old: trees in his orchard,,
and had cleared $100 per acre.
Mr. Holman put down the worth
of his own crop at $200 per acre,
as he had all the machinery and
buildings to work with. "
The great question was the
choice of land, and although most
of the land was suitable, there was
some that was-hot. For choice,
Mr. Holman favored bottom land.
Asked-with reference to a mar- '-
ket fSr tobacco, Mr. Holman said ' -
it wasnot many "days ago that.ihe %
mariager of the Imperial Tobacco -
Co. was here, and he pronounced   j;
the product of Kelowna better than
whatthevwere handling.   He fur-. >
ther stated that his company would
like to purchase Kelowna tobacco
instead of what they were rising,  '
but at present the output was so- "
small that arrangements could not ,
be made to purchase in sufficiently '»' *
large quantities.
MivSpeer pointed out that onions, *"*
were a good crop to grow between ^t\
the trees. 5 • i "
Mr. Elliott asked if anyone had
made any overtures to the CP.Ri
to get a reduction on through
car load rates. He considered
that how the company had built a
slip here the work of transportation
should be easier, ahd consequently
a reduction on the rate to this
point should be made.
' Mr. Kerr then went back to the
question of tobacco and advertising
and said if what he had heard
of the tobacco industry was correct
the board of trade were advertising
the possibilities of growing fruit too
much, and the possibilities of
growing tobacco too little. He was
of the opinion the tobacco industry
should, be built up, and more information placed in the board of
trade pamphlet with, reference
thereto. According to Mr. Holman,
there was a good market for
tobacco, and although Kelowna
had experienced no difficulty in
finding a market for its fruit, he
had heard that other towns in the
valley had experienced difficulty
in disposing of their fruit and other
Mr. Holman gave another point
in favour of tobacco growing. .He
said fruit demanded a steady and
almost immediate   market, while-,
tpbacco did not require such a.
Erompt market; the longer it is
ept the better gets. Moreover
there is little danger if attacked by
frost which could not be said with
any degree of certainty in reference --
to fruit After some further dit-
cuMion-on the question the meeting
adjourned. j ,
Mr. A. E. Boyer returned last
week from a short business trip to"'
Victoria in connection with his

The Rutland Estate Irrigation
Co. held their first annual meeting
in the hall on Monday evening
last. The directors elected for the
ensuing year, were: Dr. Baker,
Chas. H. Leathley, E. Goodrich, J.
Woolsey, and A. L. Cross.. The
work of re-building the ditch is to
be proceeded with at once.
The little girl of Mr. and Mrs.
McDonald died on Monday night
last. The little one has been very
ill during its brief life, gradually
growing worse towards the end.
The funeral took place Wednesday
Evangelestic meetings are being
held during the week in the hall
by Mr. Cochrane and Mr. Morgan.
A well attended meeting was
held in the Rutland Hall, Friday
evening last for the purpose of
organizing a farmers' institute, and
a large number of fruit growers
were in attendance. Mr. S. Sproul
was rooted to the chair, and Mr.
Landsdowne was appointed secretary, pro tern. The purpose of
the meeting having been explained
by the chairman, the matter was
freely discussed by those present.
The general opinion was decidedly
in favour of organization,. as also
of extending the operations of the
society beyond the usual program
of a farmers' institute. The methods
of handling and sale of fruit and
produce was dealt with, much dissatisfaction being expressed at the
treatment generally accorded the
farmers. A large number of names
were attached to the initial application for a charter.
A noise like thunder awakened
the Rutland folks Tuesday morning
last, when it was observed that Mr.
Maguire's team was endeavouring
to negotiate the benches in.a wild
mad gallop, dragging the box
wagon behind them. Over stones,
stumps and through gulleys they
dashed — something black and
heavy bouncing and juumping up
and down inside the box. The
humour of the thing was quickly
realized, when it was discovered
that it was Maguire's pig which
was travelling the " rocky road."
Mr. Ed. Clark has returned from
the coast, and expresses himself as
more than satisfied with the splendid weather of the valley, as contrasted with the damp atmosphere
of the coast.
Messrs. Duncan 6c Wallace have
contracted to clear, fence and
plant Mr. Noble's lot ih the 2nd
sub-division. They are also filling
a contract with Mr. T. Bulman for
a mile of piping, and excavating a
reservoir. They are certainly
Mr. G. F. Clark, who so ably and
acceptably filled the pulpit of the
Methodist church last summer, has
returned from New Westminster,
where he has been resuming his
studies at the Methodist college.
He intends staying in the valley in
the hope of recovering his health,
which has suffered greatly through
top close application and burning
" midnight oil."

Although everybody grows potatoes there are a few interesting
facts about them that are not generally known. To obtain an early
crop of potatoes, not only should
an early variety be chosen, but the
tubers should be exposed to the
sun under glass until they have
turned green, and until the sprouts
on them are an inch or more long.
The longer these sprouts are the
better, if the sets are carefully
handled so that they are not broken off. This sprouting has the
effect of developing a number of
short joints on the young shoots,
and, a3 the young potatoes form at
the joint8,l'it stands to reason that
the more joints we have underground, the heavier the crop will
be. If after planting the potatoes
are earthed up more young tubers
will form, but as these do not de-
velope until the plant has made
considerable growth, the ensuing
crop, though heavier, is later than
if not earthed.
In Ireland, where the labor is
not grudged, I have seen very fine
crops of potatoes grown in wet
boggy land by following method :
After being plowed the land is
marked out in strips alternately
four feet and two feet wide.
Strawy manure is spread on the
four-foot strips, and on this manure
the freshly-cut potato sets are
evenly distributed, at from twelve
to eighteen inches apart, according
to the variety of potato used.
The soil from the two-foot strips
is then shovelled all over the four-
foot beds, covering the potatoes to
a depth of three or four inches.
When the potato tops have grown
a few inches above the soil, the
bed is given another top-dressing
of the soil from the two-foot strips,
which by this time are converted
into deep trenches.
Good crops are obtained in this
way, and a second crop is obtained
from the land at the same time by
inserting cabbage plants two feet
apart along the edge ofthe trenches
at about the level of the manure.
These generally also yield a fine
crop. By further deepening these
trenches can be converted into
drains whereby the land can be
easily reclaimed. This hint may
be worth noting, although I doubt
if the method would become popular in thia labor-saving country.
New potatoes in small quantities
can be produced early in the year,
when they will fetch fancy prices,
by the following method:
Fit up a number of wide shelves
in a dark cellar, and on these place
two inches of almost dry soil.
Select good-sized tubers and half
imbed these in the soil, .setting
them two and a half to three inches
apart. Sprouts will shortly form
with small potatoes at their base.
The tops of these sprouts should
be nipped off with scissors. The
small potatoes should be gathered
and marketed when about the size
of a large walnut. Several crops
will be borne before the bed is
exhausted. The cellar must be
perfectly dark. A very slight
sprinkling of water may be given
carefully from time to time to the
potatoes, though too much does
In fertilizing potatoes, sulphate
of potash and not muriate of potash should be used, as the latter
tends to make the potatoes waxy.
If nitrogen has to be supplied nitrate
of soda is preferable to ammonia
salts. As a rule, however, this is
not needed, especially if potatoes
are planted on a turned under
sod, which gives nitrogen equal to
about fifteen loads of barnyard
manure per acre. As potatoes like
a strawy manure, this clover particularly suits them and it has another
beneficial effect in that its ferment"
ation produces a slight acid react"
ion in the soil which has a tenden
cy to check potato scab-

Origin of the Famous Smithsonian Institution.
Uncle 8am's Treasury Holds Ita Money, Which Can Be Used Only on Appropriation by Congress—Its Peculiar Relation to the Government.
Although the name of tbe Smithsonian Institution is a common household word in America and millions
of persons have visited tbe great buildings in Washington where are stored
the contributions of science which
hare been gathered under Its auspices,
few understand tbe real relation of tho
Institution to the national government.
Most persons believe that It is a part
of tbe government
The Smithsonian Institution, says the
Washington Times, occupies a peculiar
relation to this government. It Is a
part of It, and yet it is not a part Its
moneys are in the United States treasury and can be used only on appropriation by congress, and yet this
money does not belong to the government It is to tbe government only
as the money of a ward Is to a guardian.
James Smithson, who contributed
the bulk of the fund In tbe hands of
the Institution, was an Englishman,
the son of a peer of tbe realm. He
was a man who could trace bis ancestry back to royal blood.- He never visited in America and wus never known
to have any particular partiality for
America until be wrote bis will in
1826. He died at Genoa in 1829, and
when tbey opened bis will this is what
they read:
"I bequeathed the whole of my property to the United States of America
to fount} at Washington, under the
name of the Smithsonian institution,
an establishment for the increase and
diffusion of knowledge among men."
This property amounted to about
$500,000, which was in tbat day a
princely fortune. Six years after his
death tbe United States legation at
London was informed that there was
about $500,000 in tbe possession of the
adjutant general of the British court
of chancery awaiting claimant.
Immediately there arose in America
all kinds of opposition to the acceptance of the moDi«y. Jobn C. Calhoun
and William G. Prraton urged with
all-the Ore of their eloquence that It
was beneath tbe dignity of this government to accept sucb a gift But
John ;Quincy Adams and others prevailed, aud Richard Rusb was sent to
Eugland,to prosecute tbe claim of this
He was successful, and on Sept 1,
3838, tbe money was delivered at the
mint Id Philadelphia In tbe shape of;
104,060 gold sovereigns, which were
minted Into $508,318.48 In American'
Ibis sum by careful management
and by additions from otber charitably
Inclined persons bas now become about
$1,000,000, which tbe government keeps
and pays interest upon for the maintenance of tlie institution.
For tbe first eight years tbe money
lay in tbe treasury while plans were
being formnlated for tbe permanent
establishment described by Sraltbson
in his will. Thousands of letters were
received, and there were schemes
enough proposed to bankrupt several
governments. Congressmen debated
over this fund repeatedly, and hundreds of pages ot tbe Congressional
Globe were given up to it
Tbe institution bas been worked out
on sucb broad lines as to be one of
the/greatest forces In scientific research tn the world.

the vice president ot tbe United States,

bureau, tbe zoological park at Washington, tbe fisheries bureau and the
astropbyslcal observatory have ben
developed by the institution.
Tbe objects ot the Institution, as
described by Its drst secretary, Joseph
Henry, have been adhered to through
the years of Its exlsteuce. Tbey are
to increase knowledge by original in*
vestlgatlons and study either Iu science or literature and to diffuse knbwl-
edge not only through the United
States, but everywhere, especially by
promoting an Interchange of thought
among those prominent in learning in

in favor of any one branch ot knowledge.
The leading features of tbe plan of

Shall I Drink?
From " A Young Man's Questions," by
Robt. E. Speers.
Of course the young man who begins to
drink does not intend to drink enough to
be injured by it. He believes he can control himself, and he despises the drunkard
who has surrendered his manhood and his
self-control as thoroughly as any abstainer
does. But what evidence has any young
man that he can retain control of this
appetite? Let any young man who thinks
he can, look up the family history of the
people he knows best, his own family
history even. In few cases will he be able
to recall two generations without meeting
a drunkard, who meant to be only a moderate drinker when he began. No drunkard meant to be a drunkard when he
began. He did not intend to acquire the
habit of drink. But a bad habit fixes itself
upon the man who does the things in
which the roots of the habit reside. Even
if the habit is but one of moderate drinking, that is the only road to immoderate
drinking. And it is a road that is surer to
lead that way than the other.
"Twenty-five years ago," said Mr.
Depew recently, in an address to railroad
men, " 1 knew every man, woman, and
child in Peekskill. It has been a study
with me to mark the course of the boys,
in every grade of life, who started with
myself—to see what has become of them.
Some of them became clerks, some merchants, manufacturers, lawyers, or doctors.
It is remarkable that every one of them
that had drinking habits is now dead—not
a single one of my age now living. Except
a few who were taken off by sickness,
every one has proved a wreck and has
wrecked his family, and did it from rum
and' wmiskey, and to other cause. Of
those who were church-going people,
who were steady, industrious, and hardworking men, and frugal and thrifty, every
one, without exception, owns the house in
which he lives, and has something laid by,
the interest on which, with his house,
would carry him through many a rainy
day. When a man becomes debased with
gambling or drink he seems to care for
nothing; all his finer feeling are stifled,
and ruin only is his end."
Even men who themselves drink will
give this sort of advice to others; and
when they employ others will prefer,
without hesitation, the man who is known
to abstain. Such a man is more trusted
because he can trust himself. He has
acquired the habit of self-control, and no
temptations can allure him.
Man> young men drink because it seems
to  be  a  brave thing to do.   They feel a
manly independence in it. As a matter of
fact it is not courage, but cowardice, that
leads many of them to it. Some one invites them to take a drink, and they are
afraid to refuse, or there is a crowd about
them and they do not want to seem timid.
They think that to retain the respect of the
crowd they must do as the crowd is doing.
But probably the whole crowd is just following one or two leaders, and the real
heart of the leaders may be only a coward's
heart. These are the very times when
principles are worth something, and when
the man who says " I will not," stands out
as the man of true courage.

Queer Situations That Have Developed
on the Gridiron,
I_ the fall of Issi!) Voting, tbe Cornell quarterback, received a bad bump
on the head during tlie first balf of
one of tbe early games and was so
dazed tbat he gave'the signal for the
same play eight limes In succession.
Tbe rival eleven, unable to comprehend such generalship, or, rather, lack
of It, became just as bewildered as
the Injured quarterback and In the effort to understand the unintelligible let
the Cornell backs through for a quick
touchdown. ^
The calling out ot numbers while the
opposing quarterback is trying to give
his team tbe signal for tbe next play
has resulted lu numerous tangles, in
one of the Army and Navy contests
the quarterback ot the latter eleven became so confused in one instance when
the Army players were shouting out
various numbers while he was trying
to direct the uext play thai he actually gave his men oue of the series of
numbers the Army men were suggesting. Tbe incomprehensible signal and
the subsequent mixup may be better
imagined than explained.

Th*   Fabrication   of   Quotations   Is   a
Censurable Practice.
Plagiarism Is hardly so great a crime
as the fabrication of quot.'.tions — a
practice which has caused many an
earnest student to waste hours in a
fruitless endeavor to trace the passage
cited. Among the guilty Samuel Warren deserves special mention. On one
occasion be took part in a debate during which Roebuck boasted that be
was not a party man. whereupon Warren rose and said that "my learned
friend's boast reminds me painfully
of the words of Cicero. 'He who belongs to no party is presumably too vile
for any.' " At the conclusion of the debate Koebuck caige over to compliment his adversary on having made a
successful hit, adding. "1 am fairly
well up in Cicero, but i have no idea
where I can find the passage you quoted." "Neither have l," said Warren.

one afternoon to sit on a hillside and
watch some of ber relatives Qsblng In

tbat she bad no thimble iu ber pocket,

Turning out ot ber way to Mrs. gym-

many sizes too big for ber. There
was an old Scotch dame fit tbe counter Impatiently waiting to make her
own purchases. Not recognizing tbe
queen, she broke into the conversation

Certificates for Donftey Engineers.
■ A deputation from Vancouver, represent,
ing logging interestests, waited on4he Hon.
Thomas Taylor, minister of works, in res-
pect to the advisability of establishing a
special examination for men wishing to
act as engineers of donkey engines in log-
ging camps. The idea embodied in the
request is to make it possible for engineers
of logging camps ih the'woods to secure
certificates of proficiency based on a
knowledge of the limited requirements
of information and training necessary for
the operation of thia class of engines. The
Hon. Mr. Taylor promised the deputation
that he would go thoroughly into the
matter, and it is understood that there is a
probability of the granting of the request.

Bank of Montreal President.
There is a good deal of speculation in

present vice-president and general manager
will be appointed president, but whether
lie will retain the general-manager or not

Japs as Workmen.
That Japanese workmen are the most
efficient in British Columbia today, is the
opinion expressed by D. L. MacGregor, of
Mr. MacGregor has control of several can.
neries along the western coast, and he
employs Japanese only. He asserted that
they are better workmen than white men,
and can be relied on. They never fall
down in their duty. Mr. MacGregor
makes contracts every fall with Japanese
contractors, who hire their own country,
men. In his opinion they do better work
and do not demand the big money that
white men do.

Will Fight Local Option By-lato.
It is reported that the liquor interests of
Glenboro,. Man., will appeal to the courts
in an endeavour to have the local option
by-law, which was carried there at the
last municipal election, quashed. Their
excuse for fighting it will be technicalities
in the advertising and in the time limit for
passing the by-law a third time by the
municipal council. The by-law carried at
the polls by a majority of 28 votes.
House Dicu8868 Many Important
During the past week many important
items have been in discussion in the
Legislature, prominent among which is an
act amending the public schools act and
medical inspections in public schools. A
discussion was pursued at some length as
to the advisability of abolishing the poll
tax. It was pointed out that if this tax
was abolished the Orientals would not be
required to pay any tax at all, and the
various' revenues derived from the collection of the tax would be such as would
decrease the general revenue. The poll
tax had always been used for the purpose
of developing the schools, and it was decided that it was not time for the abolish-
ing of such a tax.
Wireless Phones to be Used.
The Pacific Radio Company have pur-
chased land from Alex. Watson of Victoria
for the establishing of a wireless telephone
station on Smith's Hill. Plans for the con-,
struction of the station are already put
forward and will include the equipping of
one of the most powerful wireless stations
on the continent. Victoria, it is expected,
w'll be able to work with San Francisco at
an e<irly date, and stations will be sup.
pletnented at Tacoma, Seattle, Vancouver
and Bellingham. No difficulty is anticipated
in carrying on conversations between
British Columbia and California by means
of wireless.
The Aoarice of Leopold.
Astonishing revelations are made by the
Brussels papers. They announce that King
Leopold, two days before his death, took
steps to sell all that he possessed, including
carriages, silver, porcelain, even private
uniforms and decorations, among others
the insignia of the Royal Order of the
Garter bestowed upon him by the late
Queen Victoria. Fortunately the king's
heirs have taken steps to cancel the sale,
which would cause a scandal.
Montreal Elections.
Civic elections we held last week in
Montreal, and great interest was evinced
by the whole city. The polls all morning
were blocked owing to the amount of time
takefi by electors to mark ballots forbqard
of control, there being 18 names on the
paper. It is not expected that more than
40,000 out of the 80,000 qualified voters
will be able to record votes as a result
Paris Floods Receding.
The terrible floods which have been
heaping ruin on the fair city of Paris are
now happily subsiding. The River Seine
has fallen over 16 feet from its crest. As
the receding waters withdraw their sup.
puorting pressure, streets are caving in and
houses falling into ruins. Foreign subsrip-
tions to the relief fund exceed $800,000.
The cabinet decided to ask parliament for
$4,000,000 more as additional credit for the
relief of victims of the flood.

Post Offices to Close on Sundays.
An order has been issued by the Postmaster-Genera), which, it is stated, will
become effective all over the Dominion,
ordering post offices to close their doors at
midnight on Saturday and remain closed
until Monday morning. The order went

*THOSE WHO READ last week's notice about " ASA YA-NEURALL," the
new medicinal preparation for t"He relief of conditions of nervous exhaustion,
and who meant to ask for the free sample offered, may still obtain same upon
request to the undersigned.
The sample contains sufficient to definitely establish the value of this preparation in your case.
when a person, young or old, through overwork, worry, intense excitement, grief,
alcoholic or other excesses, or from other recent or known causes, has overstrained
and exhausted the nervous system, and as the result, does not sleep well, wakes
up tired, is depressed, tearful, inclined to perspire at the least irritation, has
indigestion, lack of appetite, and is, to sum up in a phrase, entirely unstrung.
Such conditions are evident to everyone, and are common in every family, and can
by early treatment of brief duration by this preparation, with its threefold effect of
feeding the nerve tissue, enabling sleep to be obtained and food to be desired and
digested, be quickly overcome.
One bottle, taken three times a day according to directions, affords treatment
for about 40 days, all that is usually required for ordinary derangements of the
nervous system.
Samples and regular size bottles, may be obtained from the following:

Insects and Flowers.
Experiments on sbowy flowers like
tbe poppy tend to show tbat Insects
are not always attracted to flowers by
tbe brightly colored petals, but rather
by the perception—doubtless by means
of smell—tbat there la bouey or pollen.
In these experiments the unopened
flower bud Is Inclosed In a gauze net
so as to protect It from insects, and
wben it expands tbe petals are carefully removed without touching tbe remaining parts with the fingers (for
bees avoid a flower If tbe smell of human Angers Is left on It), aud tbe petal-
less dowers receive practically as
many Insect visits as untouched flowers do.

•French Peasants Who Arc Experts In
Walkimj on Stilts.
There is a vast district iu France
where the entire community goes
about and transacts us busluess on
stilts.    TblB   district   is   called   "l.es
The Inhabitants, who ure among the
poorest peasants in Frnm-e.. gain their
subsistence by tisblug, by such little
agriculture as Is possible and by keeping cows and sheep Tlie shepherds
make use of their stilts for two purposes—first, because walking is quite
impossible on account ot the sage and
undergrowth of brush, and. second,
because the height of their stilts gives
them a greater range ot vision.
The stilts generally are about six or
seven feet high. Near the top there is
a support for the fool, which has a
strong stirrup and simp, and still
nearer tbe top a baud ol leather fastens the stilt firmly io the leg just below the kuee. Some sillts, especially
those made for fancy walking and for
tricks, are even higher thnu seven
feet, and the niau who uses these—
and he must be an expert—can travel
as fast as teu miles an hour. The
lower end of this kind of stilt Is
capped with a sheep bone to prevent
its splitting.
Some of these Landes shepherds are
wonderfully clever iu ihe management
of their stilts. U'hey run races, step
or jump over brooks, clear fences and
walls and are able to keep their balance and equilibrium while stooping
to the ground to pick up pebbles or to
gather wild flowers. I hey tall prone
upon their faces and assume their

Ang Day in the Week.
We are adopting The McCASKEY
our accounts. This system has
been in successful operation for a
number of years among the leading merchants of the country, who
are unanimous in their endorsement of it. With this system we
are enabled to give you an itemized
bill with each purchase, which, you
will readily see, prevents the possibility of any difference between
you and us, as to the condition of
your account with us, for we have
no reccord of which you have not
an exact copy, because all charges
will be made in duplicate.
In order to secure your hearty
co-operation we furnish you with
a sales-slip holder to hold our
sales-slips, and wish to assure you
that the appearance on each sales-
slip of your total indebtedness to
us has no personal application to
you or to any other customers, but
is merely a part of the successful
operation of the system.
Under this system the need tor
sending out monthly statements is
avoided, the last purchase slip
issued in the month showing your
total indebtedness to us. This
amount is due and PfVable to us
on the first day of the following
month. It is therefore necessary
that you get a slip with each purchase. .   .
We will gladly detail the working of the system to you if you
should like it further explained It
is a system that will appeal to anyone, as by it mistakes are made
We thank you for past favors,

your wants to merit a continuance

"crouching beside her dying husband,
was controlling herself with au effort
that would. I feared, make her 111.
She laid her little* slim brown finger
upon her trembling red Up and shook
her head, then whispered. "It might
disturb him."
"Cry, It will do yon good," 1 said
the next day. wben the man was dead
and she seemed almost prostrate with
grief and overehforced self control.

Bread and Pipe Baker.
The lecturer at tbe cooking school
sometimes enlivened ber remarks with
an anecdote.
"The eighteenth century baker," she
•aid' "was a pipe cleaner as well, just
as tbe barber a little earlier was a
surgeon. Everybody in those days
smoked clay pipes, provided the same
as cops or spoons by the coffee bouses.
Well, each morning a waiter carried
bis master's stock of pipes, some hundred perhaps, to the nearest bakery.
The baker would boll them, then dip
them In liquid lime, then bake them
dry. They came ont of the oven as
sweet and white as new."'
