Aid. Leckie spoke with reference
to the account of Mr. E. Fowler for
work on the pole line. This
gentleman, he explained, had
asked for an increase of wages,
owing to his employment with the
City being irregular, and it had
been decided to increase the wage
to 40c. an hour.
Aid. Leckie explained that it was
originally the idea to do away with
a man on the the pole line, as the
engineer was going to do all pole
work, but owing to, it being the
first month after the change, it was
found necessary to put on an additional man occasionally. The
work he had been doing was
soldering up the joints—a thing
which should have been done be
fore, as it was causing a great loss
of juice in the wet weather. Aid.
Leckie explained that this-matter
had been pointed out to the late
' chief engineer, and he, (Mr.
Russell) had ordered the work not
to be done.
Aid. Leckie went on to say that
he had promised the council
quotations for a new shaft for the
power house. The price quoted
was $285 laid here, which was
made up of a cost price of $215
and $70 for freight
He advised the rest of the council of the arrival of the new exciter,
and read an extract from a lettter
from the Canadian Fairbanks Co.,
who asked that the old exciter
should be returned. They also
went on to ask for advice on their
remittance, and expressed a desire
to learn if there was any further
* reason why payment was witheld.
Aid. Leckie said that the company were evidently aware that
there was some lack of enthusiasm
,in paying' up, and had sent the
new''exciter in order to put matters
1 right in this respect
Continuing, Aid. Leckie said it
was necessary to install a steam
trap to catch the water coming
from the engine; one was there
already, but a different one should
be installed, as the present one
was not doing the work required.
He had gone fully into the
charge for engine oil, and it was
found that we were paying 90c. a
gallon for what was usually charged
65c a gallon. He had written to
the oil company with reference to
this, and had ascertained from
them that the best oil was being
sent and that the 65 cent oil was
a cheaper grade. He considered
that the cheaper grade would be
all right for the plant and that in
future a saving on the price could
Then again with reference to the
waste that had been going on, he
had takenvhis own weigh scales
down and weighed the oil that had
just arrived. The late engineer
had been in the habit of using
about two barrels in three and a
half months: the present engineer
would make the same quantity last
18 months.
With reference-to the extension
of the water system, Aid. Leckie
reported that tenders had been
received fpr laying a little over
three miles of wood pipe from the
following companies: The Canadian Pipe Co., Morrison-Thompson
Co., Municipal Construction and
Pacific Coast companies. Of these
the Canadian Pipe Co. was the
lowest, followed by The Morrison-
Thompson Co., with an increase of
$244; TKe Municipal Construction
Co., with an increase of $304; and
the Pacific'Coast Co., with an increase of $728.
Aid. Jones asked if any quotations had been received for steel
pipe, whereupon Aid. Leckie said
that the cost would be about twice
as much as wood pipe.
Mayor Sutherland said the council figured on putting in one mile
of cast iron pipe,, and the rest .in
wooden pipe.. 8-inch pipe was to
be used in Bernard avenue.
Aid. Leckie said the present
plan was to have three different
sizes of pipe: 8ft., 6ft and 4ft.
Water" extension would be made
as far as Mr. D. Lloyd-Jones' house
and possibly two mains past, and
also down PendoziNstreet as far as
Aid. Stirling's house. It was proposed to get a man from the
factory to lay the pipe.
Mr. S. T. Elliott attended and
asked the council to look into the
system of a little better fire protection, and a more efficient alarm
system. The present round-about
and uncertain way of. sending in
alarms was useless, and there was
little doubt that if the alarm had
been sent in directly it was discovered that his implement store
was ablaze, he would have saved
about $1000. , He pointed out that
it was not only in his case that a
hitch had been found in the alarm
system. Several fires had occurred
recently and the alarm had not
been sent in directly. This neglect
in sending in alarms might increase
and some serious damage might
result. He suggested that boxes
should be put on the telephone
poles and convenient places in
town so that an alarm coule be
sent in direct
Mr. Elliott drew attention to the
outbreak at the back of Mr. Oxley's
premises and also to his own fire.
" Both theses fires," he continued,
" are the work of some person or
persons, and everything points to
Mayor Sutherland stated that the
council were about put in a new
syren, which would only "be used
in case of fire.
. Mr. Elliott said that it was reported around town that the night
operator was in the habit of muffling the bells so that they would
not wake him up during the night
This he considered quite outside
the arrangements made with Mr.
Millie for an all n,ight system.
Mayor Sutherland replied that
Mr. Millie's franchise called for an
all night service, and considered
that the council had power to act
if an all night service was not
Mr. Elliott remarked that the
present night operator was working
both day and night, and it was
therefore unfair to suppose that he
could attend properly to his work
when asleep. Mr. Elliott also
broached the subject of getting a
night watchman, and considered
that if the city would get a good,
live man to act in that capacity, the
people would support the project
and pay a certain amount towards
his upkeep.
Mayor Sutherland said that if the
people would send in a petition to
the council, asking for a night
watchman to be appointed, the
council would take the matter up.
Under these circumstances the
council might assist.
Mr. Elliott' then withdrew and
Aid. Cox asked about the alarm
system. It was the first he had
heard that any change was to be
made in the present system. The
whole matter was news to him, he
did not know any alteration was
taking place.
Mayor Sutherland replied that
the question of a new syren had
already been brought forward in
committee, and also in general
meeting, but the question of placing
'phones or boxes on the telephone
poles had so far only been discussed in committee. He admitted
that the present system of whistles
useless, and that some change was
necessary. At this juncture, however, the matter was dropped.
Upon motion By-laws Nos. 71
and 72 were re-considered and
finally passed. Both these by-laWs
had been voted on and passed by
the people. One was to borrow
the sum of $10,000 for water extensions ; the other to borrow the
sum $3,500 to pay for the' re-construction of the municipal power
Upon motion it was agreed - to
accept the plan of Mr. Elliott's new
garage now in course of erection,
being plan of sub-division of lot
14 Gl.
A motion to . authorize the
mayor and city clerk to negotiate a
loan of $1,000 to meet current expenses, was next put forward and
carried. The council then adjourned to meet on Saturday 23rd, at
Rutland News.

Westbank Sawmill
Burnt Out
Capt. Knight is progressing favorably from his illness which resulted from his recent accident
and is now well on the road to
recovery. Mr. Frank C. Knight
came up from Winnipeg last Wednesday to visit his father and < was
very pleased to find that all danger
had .passed.
A fire broke out in Cal. Blackwood's tent yesterday morning,
and had it not been for the timely
help of several of the men from
the livery adjoining, the whole
structure would have been burnt
down. Mr. Blackwood, lighting
the stove for breakfast did not
notice that the wind had disjointed
the pipe-during the night. The
flames, roaring up the stove pipe,
set fire to the canvas and the wood
supports, sptcauing to tne rcc»ng
above the canvas. Mr. Blackwood
hastened to get help, a successful
effort being made to get a small
garden hose into action, which,
together with' a few well-placed
pails of water, soon put out the
flames, which at one time were
leaping high into the air. The
damage was not very great.
Owing to the indisposition of the
"Mikado's" leading tenor, Mr. G.
Hassell, the date of production has
had to be postponed. At present
the date is not fixed, but an announcement will be possibly mqde
in next issue.
A case of assault was before
Magistrate Boyce on Monday la«t,
Mr. Muerling, of Westbank, being
the plaintiff, and appeared with his
eye bandaged. In the course of
an altercation at the Westbank
mill, Mr. Muerling w^s struck on
face with a hammer. The magistrate fined the assailant $20 and
costs, and bound him over to keep
the peace.for twelve months.
The subjects of Rev. S. J. Thompson next Sunday will be: morning, "The mystery of Godliness,"
evening, Special service under the
auspices of the W.M.S. The loose
collection will be devoted to the
funds of the women's mission
society. .
The anniversary services at
Methodist church were held on
Sunday and Monday last, an appropriate sermon was preached by
Rev. Mr. Pike, and a social on the
Monday evening was greatly enjoyed by all who were not too tired
to attend. The address of Rev. Mr.
Thompson, of Kelowna, on the
" Old Maid'sText," was much appreciated, and several of the young
as well as old maids are looking
for the kind of man portrayed, one
ol good physical, mental and moral
strength. The following persons
took part in the programme, aftex
which the usual good things that
go to build up physical vtrtngth,
were disposed of to the satisfaction

Very large quantities of trees are

A fire which completely razed
to the ground the Westbank sawmill occurred on the other side of
the lake last Thursday morning,
'starting soon after midnight
The majority of the inhabitants
of the vicinity were quickly on the
scene, but the flames had got such
a complete hold of the old frame
building which covered the machinery that it was impossible to
make any efforts to save it, especially as there was no apparatus to
fight the flames with. Buckets
were procured and efforts made to
save the surrounding property,
with some degree of success. The
fire, however, caught oold of some
60,000 feet of lumber near by, and
this was completely destroyed.
The. flames leapt high in the air,
lighting up the surrounding country
and sending out such a terrific
heat as to burn the green branches
from the trees around, and leaving
traces of its fury in all directions.
A pile of logs some yards away
was saved by drenching with
water, but these were the only
things saved, the building, machinery, and lumber being completely
burnt, and considered a total loss.
The building covering the plant
was only a temporary structure,
and a new building is in course of
erection not far off. This still
remains, but the machinery and
boilers which were to have been
us«d in the new premises are
destroyed and can not be used
again. The boilers seem to have
a particularly bad record. One is
said to have already been through
three fires/while the other has two
to its discredit. The greatest loss
is in the machinery, a quantity of
which fyad only.lately been re-
placed^and 8brnewa8 entirely new.
No insurance, it is understood,
was carried on the mill itself, but
the lumber was insured in a small
sum. The cause of the fire is unknown, but it is evident that it
started in the mill itself.

Bear Creek News.
(From our own coireapondent)
Fine weather is the order of the
district and seeding is in full
A large party of surveyors are
at work here preparing for the
influx of settlers that will be coming this spring.
Messrs. Hamilton Lang and M.
Hereron were passengers to Bear
Creek recently and informed the
settlers there that the road which
was commenced last fall on the
south side of Bear creek is to be

was well known to many here. The
deceased lady had a paralytic
stroke on Friday last and only
lived a few hours. The funeral
took place on Tuesday morning at
Later reports from the fire at the
Westbank Sawmill, puts the loss
at about $5000. The insurance
carried was on lumber only, a certain distance from the mill. All
the lumber was found to be too
near the mill to benefit .by the
insurance. The machinery is too
badly damaged to be of any use.
May 24th will be Kelowna's Hay
again this year, and a strong
directorate and list of patrons has
already been prepared to carry the
sports through on that date. In all
possibility the exhibition grounds
will be used for the purpose, and
a few pony races' included. The
Marathon race will be a feature
the same as last year, only all
things will be done on a much
larger scale.

Fishing one day last season,
I was pegging away like steam,
Chucking the flies out deftly
Over the rippling stream.
I knew not what flies were hatching,
And I don't care a tinker's cuss,
But 1 rose one trout—a giant—
As big as a motor-'bus—
A* big as a motor-'bus.
It flashed up its crimson splotches,
Like the ports of a man-o'-war.
Great Scott that trout—and no kidding-
Weighed just twenty-seven stun four I
1 stuck it well and truly.
As it made a grab at the fly,
And the circus opened gaily
And it leap ten feet on high—
Yes, it leaped ten feet on high.
It fought like a frenzied demon,
And kicked like an old " brown Bess;"
And it bended the fly-rod into
Quite a double barrelled S.
Then it darted off like lightening,
And the winch-check fairly screeched;
And it realed the line out longer
Than ever a parson preached—
Than ever a parson preached.
Three miles of the line were run off,
When the heat (this is quite O.K.)
Of the friction burnt the line through,'
And melted the winch away.
It may be that some lucky brother
Will wheedle that whopping trout,
But I'm betting that some time this season
1 shall yank the beggar out—
I shall certainly yank him out I
News of the Valley.
J. E. Watson, Mus. Bac, late of
Kelowna, has been appointed choir
leader and organist of St. Andrew's
church, and took charge last Sunday. Mr. Watson is a native of
Durham, England, and received his
musical education at Ripon Cathedral. He won his bachelor's
degree at Durham University in
1903 and has had considerable
experience as a choral and orchestral conductor. With the reputation
that the St. Andrew's church choir
has already established for itself,
great things may be looked for in
the future under Mr. Watson's
The Okanagan Fruit Union will
start operations shortly on the
large fruit storehouses which will
be erected at Vernon, Okanagan
Landing, Summerland and Penticton.
The Okanagan Lake Lumber
Company is going forward. The
C. P. R. have completed a spur
track from a point north of the Y
to the mill, about 2,000 feet long,
being the second that has been
laid for this company, who are
anticipating a busy season. By the
new addition they will be able to
load cars as the lumber comes from
the saws, as well as having unlimited capacity for loading in the
yards, which is essential to the
business they are doing; thirty
cars of lumber were shipped
during the month of March. They
are getting up booms of logs for to
cut and meet the demand that an
influx of settlers upon the prairies
are making for the products of the
company. Okanagan Landing and
its adjuncts are a growing proposition, and will stay by growing.
Capt. Esterbrook, of the Okanagan, played the part of the Good
Samaritan upon the occasion of a
recent call, by coming to the relief
of the Orillia, which had tried in
vain to haul a large scow from the
beach. After the barge had been
hauled afloat 'there were several
people besides A. W. McCulloggh
who were ready to sing " He's a
Jolly Good Fellow."
About a year ago, Coun. J. R.
Brown lost a cow, all efforts to
locate her proved unavailing. This
spring he wrote parties at Penticton,
giving description of the animal,
and last week received information
that a beast answering brand and
description had been located. On
arriving at Penticton he found his
long lost cow in the butcher's
coraal fattening, and ordained to
be killed in the course of a few
days. The beast had apparently
changed hands several times during the past few months.
When here last week, Mr. Mc-
Nair found a suitable bank of sand
on the Lambly estate close to the
lake shore. He at once went to
Penticton to secure a lease from
the executors of the estate, and being successful he went to the coast
to arrange for his plant.' He expects that within a month or six
weeks he will have the plant
running and turning out cement
water pipes.

tilt; spring of Gihon to the pool of
Gihon, now known as Mary's
Spring, is in the valley of Kedron,
anci was the only natural spring in
the vicinity of the city of David, It
was separated from the city by the
Ophcl liidge, a muss of rock, so that
when enemies appeared before the
will they could cut off this supply
and compel the people within to de-
pi'iici upon stored water. King Hezekiah, about 700 B.C., devoted himself
to remedying this by constructing a
tunnel, which is referred to in II.
Kings, xx., 20, to bring the waters
within the walls.
At that time not only waa tunnelling through rock an untried work,
and one that must be done without
such aids in the way of drills and
blasting powder as even the most
amateur workman would use nowadays, but there was no mariner's
compass or other means for following
a given direction underground. The
distance from the spring to the Pool
of Siloam is about 900 feet in a
straight line, and the hill overhead
is about 150 feet higher than the
To pentrate this Hezekiah _ workmen had tools of bronze, of a description now unknown. They began
digging from both ends at the same
time, and tried to keep their bearings
in a straight line by sighting from
outside. They did not maintain a
uniform bore; but kept the slope of
the bottom with great accuracy. The
shaft is from two to three feet wide,
anchfrom 10 feet high at one end diminishes to a foot and a half in the
Sighting from the outside did not
prove a very satisfactory method.
Many places are to be Been in the
tunnel to-day where headings were
abandoned and a start made in a new
direction. Even then the tunnel rambles about, and was more than 1,700
feet long before the two ends came
together. The opposing diggers were
able to find each other at last by listening for the sounds of the others'
picks and working toward the place
whence they seemed to come. This
was learned from an inscription on
the wall of the tunnel which was discovered in 1880 by some boys at play.
For a city situated as Jerusalem
was, no gift could have been more
welcome than that of an assured water supply. One can imagine, therefore, that the ceremonies attendant
upon the completion of the work were
on as magnificent a scale as could
then be devised, and represented as
much to the people of Hezekiah as
the opening of the Panama canal -will
to those of America.

A Short Lived  Newspaper.
The first newspaper ever published
in America never got beyond its first
issue. It was called Publick Occurrences and appeared in Boston Sept.
25, 1690. It contained a promise to
publish in its next issue the names
of all the liars in Boston, and the
authorities, taking cognizance of the
threat, wisely forbade the publication. The Boston News Letter was
the first journal to be regularly published on this continent. It was started in 1704 and was followed by the
American Weekly Mercury in Philadelphia in 1719. English journalism
is only thirty-five years older than
that American journal, The London
Gazette, an official publication, having been founded in 1665.—San Francisco Argonaut.

Grazed In the Fog.
It is not usual for a ship oi) the high
seas to elect to cast anchor on tie
neck of a passing steamer, but that
is what a four-masted schooner did
once in the Atlantic. The two vee>
sels grazed in the fog, and the "cat.
ted" port anchor of the schooner
caught in the steamer's deck "by a
fluke." It fastened to an engineer's
stateroom in such a manner aa to
bur his exit, but fortunately the
chain parted just as the room was
being ripped into fragments. The
schooner followed the steamer to its
destination to recover her anchor.
Birds' Songs.
- A French writer says that notwithstanding the fact of their simplicity
the songs of birds cannot be imitated
with musical instruments because of
the impossibility of reproducing their
peculiar timbre. The notes of birds,
while corresponding with our musical
scale, also include vibrations occupying the intervals between our notes.
Tlie duration of birds' songs is usually very short, two or three seconds
for thrushes and chaffinches, four or
five seconds for blackbirds, but from
two to five minutes for the lark.

The Cigarette's Facination.
1 The following are extracts from'a remarkable article which appeared in the
" Chambers' Journal " for January ; Almost
every really heavy smoker of cigarettes will
agree with me at once that no secret of
mystery has been better preserved than
that.relating to the extraordinary increase,
during the past decade, in the consumption
in this country of the little rolls of paper
filled with Virginia, or so-called Egyptian
tobacco. The smoker addicted to this peculiar and deadly habit knows perfectly
well why such an enormous increase has
come about, and it is not in the least degree
surprised at it. Having regard to his own
experiences his only surprise is that it has
not been even greater; but, for reasons
best know to himself, he rarely mentions
the secret even to those who are possessed
of it. Thus it happens that the outside
world has, for the most part, remained in
complete ignorance; so' much so, indeed
that when it is sprung upon us that the
reason why one merchant, who ten years
ago used to sell Cigarettes to the value of
only forty pounds in a given"period, now
disposes of one thousand pounds' worth in
the same period, is simply that the consumer
has contracted the curious habit of inhaling
all the smoke he extracts from the Cigarette
down his bronchial tubes and into his lungs
—well, we will discredit and even ridicule
the idea.
However it is-perfectly true; and there
are many thousands of men in the country
who wish it were not. It is ho exaggeration to say that this new habit of inhaling
the smoke of Cigarettes—a habit which has
only come into vogue in this country during the last few years, and which in the
next few will inevitably tell a great tale
upon the mental and bodily capacity of the
nation—more quickly obtains a strong hold
on those who give way to it than any other habit which has for its object the gratification of the senses in one way or
another. Any man of ordinary will power,
who is given to alcoholic excesses, can abstain for a week or two with the expenditure of very slight effort, and of course he
can in many cases, with the same amount
of effort, absolutely-stop even the smallest
indulgence for ever; but of some hundreds
of men whom I know to have contracted
the habit of Cigarette-smoke inhaling, I
have only heard of two who have been
successful in shaking it off, though in fully
90 per cent of cases an effort, of more or
less determined character has been 'made.
This may sound a little strange to those
who are not in the secret; but there are
much stranger disclosures to be made
and they are in many respects of quite a
pitiable character. ,
It will be very difficult for the uninitiated
reader to realize the exact nature of the
practice and the sensations pf mind and1
body which the habit produces; and I
would give an earnest warning at the outset against allowing the couriosity to be so
exited as to desire to go in for any practical, experiments. I have known many cases
of a man becoming a confirmed inhaler
simply through indulging in a single trial,
even though that trial made him ill and he
derived anything but enjoyment from it.
A ^subtle and inexplicable fascination is
developed almost instantaneously.
I was discussing the matter not long ago
with one of the most famous men in the
medical profession—a man, in fact, who
bas the honor of attending upon Royalty.
He was telling me of these baneful effects,
and 1 asked him why he did not initiate a
crusade against the vice. " He inhaled the
Cigarette smoke himself," and he added
significantly, " What is the use ? They
wouldn't stop it I"
A leading tobacconist in the city of London told me that in the space of five years
he had seen regular frequenters of his shop
completely broken down in mind and body,
through   having  contracted  the  inhaling
habit; moreover, that some of them were
in the cemetery who, he is convinced,
would not have been there if they had
stuck to their pipes and cigars. Of course,
the medical certificate did not give tobacco
smoke as the cause; very likely it said
consumption ; but I can quite believe, and
so can any other confirmed inhaler, that it
was the Ggarette that was the cause of it

Bees Damage the
=Ripe Fruit ? =
Importance of Bee Culture to
A writer in The California  Fruit
Grower says:
It has been ascertained that in
numerous fruit blossoms pollen
transportation and scattering on
the part of insects, and o! the bee
in particular, is indispensable to
the proper fertilization of the bloom
says an unidentified writer. Observing horticulturists have noticed
that their orchards are never so
full of fruit as when they have had
several days warm veather for the
blossoms to be visited, by honey
gathering insects. In the case of
some blossoms, such as the strawberry, of which some varieties are
imperfect and carry only pistil- and
no stamens, !t is absolutely indispensable that some insect be
able to carry the pollen from the
perfect blossoms to the imperfect
ones. Strawberry growers well
know that some varieties must be
accompanied by other varieties in
order to become productive, but
even if they were planted together
there would be but very remote
chances of cross-fertilization if it
were not for the agency of the
winged insect.
So much for the removal of pollen
by the bee, but what about its
absorption of the honey ? Some
have said that the honey exuded
by the blossoms in the support of
the young fruit, and that the removal of this honey works an
injury to the fruit. I cannot agree
to this. Whether honey is reabsorbed or not, I have very good
evidence that its removal works
no injury. The largest crops of
honey in our section of the
country are gathered from white
clover and Spanish nee - les. In
Colorado and the West generally,
millions of pounds are gathered
from alfalfa. I have yet to learn
of a single instance where these
plants have failed to produce a
bountiful crop of seed after having
given a heavy crop of honey.
Whether we believe in fixed
purposes of progress in Nature, or
inthe invariable outcome produced
by the survival of the fittest, or  in
both of these theories combined,
we must acknowledge that the
existence of honey gathering insects
shows a beautiful adaptation to
the conditions of plant life.
Let us now look upon the other
objection to the culture of bees in
connection with horticulture, the
depredations of bees upon fruit. 1
think if it can be shown that the
bees prey upon damaged fruits,
and this only in exceptional circumstances, the verdict will be in their
favor, for damaged fruit when
hanging upon the trees or the
vines is of but little value. If not
harvested at once, it will rot, so
bees gather only that which would
be soon wasted.
But do the bees damage sound
fruit, or, better yet, can they damage
ripe fruit which is sound ? An examination of the mandible of the
bees in comparison with those of
many of the hornets and wasps
reveals the fact that while those of
the hornets are like saws, the
mandibles bf the bees are rounding
and deprived of teeth. Their jaws
act from side to side instead of up
and down as in the animals, and
they are shaped like spoons. They
can grasp objects, or the stems of
plants. They are made to manipulate soft substances like beeswax.
They can make a hole in cloth or
paper, but an examination of the
method used will show that they
first take hold of a projecting
thread and pull it out, then lake
another and keep pulling until they
change an apparently smooth piece
of goods into a rag.
But when it comes to the smooth
skin of a fruit, all they do is to remove the soft down   of  bloom   of
the fruit, if they travel upon it long
enough, but they are no more able
to bite into it than a human being
could bite into   a   smooth   plaster
wall.    This may be demonstrated
by actual test. The most expeditious
method   is   to   place   a  bunch of
grapes inside of a populous hive of
bees, previously puncturing a few
of the berries and  taking  note   of
it.    After twenty-four hours or more
investigation   will   show    that   the i
bees have sucked the juice  out of j
the punctured grapes, but have left |
the others intact.    They will even '
go   so   far   as   to cover these with I
a propolis or beeglue, as they do ]
with   every  foreign   substance   of i
which they cannot get rid.
The bee evidently  works  upon i
damaged   fruit,   and   feels   so   in-j
nocent about it that it dees not
even fly away when we catch it in
the act. But let us get up with the
dawn, before sunrise, and go out
to the vineyard or to the peach
orchard, and there we will catch
the real culprits who.damage sound
fruit; quails, robins, catbirds, etc.
They gather there by the hundreds
they eat their fill, and when no
longer hungry, they find a pleasure
in wontonly plunging their beaks
in the soft fruit. In many instances
you will find a bunch of grapes
with hardly a sound berry, and
they are all plucked on the same
side, many of the berries showing
two holes, one above the other a
short distance apart. It was done
by the two points of the bird's
Bees do not work at all times,
even on unsound fruit. Is it because
they are lazy at times ? No. It is
because they find something better.
Whenever you find the bees in
damaged peaches or grapes, you
may be sure that there is no honey
to be found in the blossoms. There
are seasons of honey scarcity, when
they manage to gather quite a little
partly fermented fruit juice. It is
the best they can find, but it is not
very good for them, for it will sour
in the hive and will make bad
winter food. The prudent apairist
removes all this unhealthy food
from the hive before winter and
gives them good honey instead.
There is never any great quantity
of fruit juice harvested, because in
many cases the bees are made
drunk by its fermentation and fail
to reach the hive alive. So when
bees are seen to feed numerously
upon damaged fruit, it may be
safely asserted that the apairy is
more injured than benefited
The assertions I have made in
this paper are based upon positive
facts. I have been a beekeeper on
a large scale for some forty years,
and have grown peaches, apples
and grapes also on a large scale.
I have some twelve acres of vineyard in full bearing, and during
the past summer also harvested, in
partnership with my son-in-law,
some 1,200 bushels of fine peaches.
1 have often taken visitors into the
vineyard and shown them without
possibility of error that beekeeping
and fruit growing are not antagonistic, but are piofitable when carried
on hand in hand, in a suitable

Bulletin on Milk Cooling.
There has been issued in bulletin forn a
review of experiments conducted by G, H.
Barr and J. G. Bouchard of the Dairy
Branch, Ottawa, on cooling milk for cheese-
making. It is conclusively shown in this
report that aeration of the milk is injurious
in most cares and the propejf method of
of keeping the evening milk until it is taken to the factory next morning is to put it
in cans as soon as possible and keep it
cool by the use of ice or spring water.
Managers of factories may obtain copies of
tHis bulletin by application to the Dairy
and Cold Storage Commission, Ottawa.
KoQtenatj Lake Fruit Seroice.
R. Helme, superintendent of the Dominion Express company, Vancouver, leas telegraphed to P. A. Dunne, in answer to
James Johnstone, saying that the barge
service would be continued on Kootenay
Jake this summer. There will be a'charge
for the service at a fixed amount per crate.
The service is to be permanent and with the
anticipated increase from year to year in the
amount of the shipments the rate per crate
will be reduced. This was one of the
principal demands made by Kootenay
fruitgrowers at their convention last week.
Croiods of Settlers Coming.
The immigration department reports that
the indications show a total immigration of
150,000 Americans to the Canadian west
this year, being an increase of about 50
per cent..over last year. The entry certificates show that on an average each immigrant had $800 cash or settlers effects.
This means that for the year about $125,-
000,000 will come into Canada from this
source alone. From the British isles it is
expected that the new arrivals will total
about 100,000, making the aggregate immigration for the year about 300,000.
Both in quality and in numbers the immigration this year will be the best in the
history of Canada.
Canada to haoe Own Shipyards.
Sir Robert Perks who arrived in Ottawa
last week after a long interview with Hon.
Mr. Pugsley, announced that a Company
was being incorporated by the state department to build drydocks and erect shipbuilding plants in Canada. The company
will be composed of representatives of
Harland and Wolff, and C.P.R. Steamship
company, Allan Steamship company, Mc
Arthur Perks & Co. and several Canadian
capitalists. They will build drydocks capable of handling the longest naval vessels
or ocean-going steamers at St. John and
Point Lewis, Que. At St. John there will
also be a steel shipbuilding plant. The
company will begin operations as soon as
the government bill providing increased
subsidies for drydocks has passed parliament. The project marks the beginning of
the creation of. a great shipbuilding industry in Canada, and the vessels for the new
Canadian navy will be built at St. John
May Raise Rates
According to local railroad officials there
is a move on foot on both the Grand Trunk
and the Canadian Pacific roads to raise
passenger and freight rates. Officials state
that this course is neccessaiy as a result of

more wages.
School Board matj Sue Council
The Nelson school board is indignant
because the city council has failed to withdraw the expression '" wrongfully appropriated," which it used in a resolution in
January in reference to. certain monies
which the school board received from the
sale of certain school property. The board
has instructed R. S. Lennie, solicitor, to
write a letter to the council and, failing
retraction, threatens an action for slander.
Whatever the outcome of the legal action
the costs would have to be borne by the
council and eventually by the Nelson ratepayers.

Alarming Rumors oP King's Health
Alarming rumors concerning King Edward's health circulated, following a report
that his proposed Mediterranean trip had
been called off. One version had it that
the king's health was that bad that he could
stand the trip which was scheduled to begin on the 20th. Another declared that
the political situation in England was such
that Premier Asquith had intimated thatthe

There has been an unusual amount of rain

Victim Has No Chance With These
Desperate Characters, Who Have
No Regard For Human Life and
Often Kill Wantonly—"Kissing the
Widow" Is Fatal to the Stranger—
Description of a London Journalist.
In Paris there is no more dreaded
criminal than the •'Apache"—pronounced "Apash" by the French, instead of with three syllables, as in
America. The Apache is not like the
London "hooligan;" but he is peculiar
to himself, unlike the criminal of any
other city. He murders apparently
for the glory of committing the crime,
often killing a man for no visible rea^
son other than to boast of it to the""
members of his band, just as the Indians whence came his name delighted in adding scalps to the lengthening
string of gory trophies. The Parisian
Apache has an utter disregard for life.
It is the daring with which he commits murder and hisr cool and even
boastful air when caught that in a
large measure is responsible for the
restoration of tlie guillotine and the
death penalty.
The Canadian felon convicted of a
capital crime' speaks of the penalty
as "stretching honip." The French
criminal comes of a more romantic
and imaginative .race, so ho speaks of
the guillotine route as "kissing the
widow."       »
Tlie Apache's pal is nearly always
a woman, or "Apache girl," as she ia
usually called. The method of attacking the intended victim is simple
enough. A woman approaches him.
■ She is always of the same type, the
tight-fitting waist, the skirt short and
flaring, the hat a cheap exaggeration
of the prevailing mode. She engages
tho stranger, willing or unwilling, in
conversation just long enough to enable Ihe Apache to steal up from behind a corner or from under the cover
of some shadow. In an instant the
woman has pinned the man's arms, a
knife has been run into him and he
is on tho ground dying.
The Apaches nearly always work
with the knife, occasionally with the
blackjack, but never with a revolver,
except when they are fighting among
themselves. Their method is to surprise the victim from behind. They
rarely attack him ■ openly unless the
band be very strong, for they take no
chances. No demand for money is
made at the muzzle of the pistol.
Their motto is, "Kill first and rob
Though a daring criminal in his
work, the Apache lives much like a
skulking hyena. The way of it is
graphically told by John N. Raphael,
writing for a London paper, who says
in the course oi his article:
"We went to another doss house,
smaller and more disreputable. On
the way there Duvel (I will call the
detu'etive by this name, which is not
his own) explained to us that the
owner of the doss house was a very
useful servant of the police force.
'We lot him steal his provisions without interference, or .get them stolen
"for him from the markets,' he explained, 'on the understanding that
he will pay if complaints are made
and will keep us well informed about
his guests. He makes a good deal of
money out of his twopences in this
way, as his provisions cost him nothing, and he is very useful to us.' And
then Duval pulled open the door, a
dfcor which opened outward for obvious reasons, and we went in.
"Two of our party regretted tne
visit immediately. They thought it a
shame to have eaten so well. As we
walked in, a stench rose up out of the
dusk that was positively appalling.
It was a solid wall of evil odor. Two
of the party rushed out there and
then and waited for us outside. When
wo rejoined them they looked as
though they had just crossed the
channel en a rough day- and in one of
the smallest boats.
"Inside it took us a moment to get
used to the want of light. There was
only a small, smoky lantern, which
stood on the counter by the proprietor.
He was a huge, broad-shouldered,
pock-marked man in his shirt sleeves
—an ex-boxer, Duval told us. There
were no beds in the place, which provided soup and sleep for twopence,
and threw the smell in gratis.
"Whoever liked paid twopence, got
a cup of soup with meat in it, and
might sleep where he liked till morning. The aristocrats brought their
beds with them. These were a rug or
a newspaper, on which they pillowed
thoir heads on tlie brick floor. Some
slept at the tables. There were no
divisions of the sexes. Men and women slept together in their clothes. I
inoticed that Duval never spoke, to
the proprietor, but when we got out
he showed me a scrap of paper with a
name on it. 'A sensational capture,'
he chuckled. He went off and telephoned, and a man who had been
'wanted' for some months was in the
hands of the police an hour later.
"Fradin's is a huge establishment
and has six floors. About 100 men
and women sleep in the cellar every
night, but the whole house holds 600
or 700. On the upper floors are beds
'upon the rope. They are a strip of
sacking, hung hammockwise, on
!which the men and women sleep and
[which are let down with a rnn to
:wake them up and turn them out in
the morninga
"Besides these doss houses, the
seamy side of Paris has its ball-rooms
and its oabarets. The Apaches and
their lady friends there are extremely
reali so that an average of two knife
wounds a night and one murder a
week is nothing at all out of the way.
"There is another doss house near
the Halles, where tho guests are so
dangerous that the proprietress, a
woman, spends her night In a little
cage, like the box office of a theatre.
Tie place haa two doors. The first is
opt u. And it is not until the guest
ha; put hia twopenc'o through the
bn ■■ _ of the cage that tho proprietress
re 'ascs tho lock of the second ,<_oor
inc-j the bod-room by pressing a''button. And at her elbow she has a
special telephone, which will bring
four policemen with revolvers drawn
in one minute, and a half from tbe
pttttio. close at hand."

Cook's   Unfortunate   Predicament
Recalls  De  Rougemont  Case.
Dr. Frederick A. Cook, since the
report of the University of Copenhagen findings after investigation ol
his "proofs," is regarded as being
more or less of a fraud. Some openly denounce tho Brooklyn '"discover"
as being such, while there are others
who incline to the belief that the doctor's mind has become affected
through hardship, exposure to cold
and a constant brooding over the
idea that he should some day b_ successful in reaching , the long-sought
North Pole. Aside from any question of Dr. Cook's guilt or innocence,
the ease recalls a famous hoax wherein a French traveler, Da Rougemont,
set the world agape with curiosity
concerning a certain wonderful island
of the South Paciiic ocean.
M. de Rougemont about ten years
ago startled and interested the whole
world with the publication of a story
that he had discovered a wonderful
island in the southern Paciiic ocean,
where the inhabitants had developed
a civilization so advanced as to cause
the blush of shame to rise to the
cheek of the very best thing that had
as yet been done in the civilization
lir.es by the-most "advanced countries
oi Kurope." '
How he came to find the island is
totally beside the question. The main
fact in the case is that everybody
believed him—at first. How could
anybody doubt the word of a "French
savant?" Here was a man coming
back fresh from a trip oi discovery
in the south seas with the actual
goods on his person !
Tlie best feature of De Kougemont'-
work was that he was only too wilting to appear before the geographical
societies of Europe and tell tbem anything they wanted to know. He was
sharply qui_.--.ed at the meeting of the
geographical section of the British
Association for the Advancement of
Science and came out of the ordeal
r.s fr__h a.s a daisy. He made a
small fortune for himself by contributing to wideawake magazines and
writing a book or two. A few wise
on.s, however, had begun to suspect
tiiat De Rougemont was "something
vi a liar himself," and the impression grew until the notorious island,
and De Rougemont with it, remerged
into the depths of the Pacific ocean,
from which the imaginative and thrifty  Frenchman had  raised  it.
Children   Sold  to   Gypsies.
It is calculated that between 200
and 30U little children in France are
annually taken from their homes by
gypsies and other nomads. Not a
lew of these children are deliberately
sold by their parents. A case in point
has just come to the notice of the
ponce at Bellac, near Limoges, where
a laborer named Pinuad, aged 52, sold
:7s six-year-old daughter to a family
oi gypsies for 50s. and a pitcher of
wine. The contract of sale was drawn
up in a wineshop. A' revenue stamp
was affixed, and it was signed by two
witnesses. One of these—the woman
who kept the wineshop—was, however, apprehensive oi the legal consequences to herself. She immediately informed the child's uncle, who
with the police started off in pursuit
of the gypsies and came up with them
the next morning. Replying to the
poiice, the child, repeating the lesson she had been taught, said that,
siie was traveling with her uncle and
aunt, but on seeing her real uncle
she ran to his arms and burst into

The Mushroom.
It is commonly believed that the
mushroom literally grows in a night,
so that it has come to be emblematic
of sudden development, but the truth
is quite otherwise. It is very likely
to require several weeks for its formation and up to the time of ita appearance in the light of day it remains beneath the surface, very much
compressed and held in small compass. Then comes a moist night, and
the cells df which the fungus is composed are greatly expanded, so that
it tbtusts itself out above ground.
But it is no heavier, though so much
bigger, than days before, perhaps,
when it lay hidden in small compass
under the top layer of soil, a perfect
The Eckhardta company occupied the boards at the Opera
House last Thursday, Friday, and
Saturday, and gave several good
plays, though before only small
audiences. The acting was good
but the scenery carried was not up
to the average, and really not in
keeping with the acting of the
principals, who made a remarkably
fine showing. The company left

finding it could not dislodge its
small rider, rushed off madly in the
direction of town. Tom managed
to stick on and to safely steer his
hose to the barn door, where the
hands there gave him a lift off, and
managed to quieten down the

round is gradually becoming connected with the town by means of
the telephone.
Work on clearing up the park
is now in full swing, and soon the
whole park will have on its summer
foliage, and provide a fine rendz-
vou3 on a summer's evening.
Rev. Father Verbeke met with
an accident last Saturday whilst
driving in town. His horse suddenly swerved round when near
the horse trough in main street,
nearly overturning the two-wheeled
cart and throwing Father Verbeke
violently to the ground. The horse
rushed off in the direction of the
wharf and along Abbott street,
where it collided with some trees,
smashing the shafts of the cart.
Tearing itself loose from the
wreckage it continued its mad
career until it was stopped near
the mouth of the creek. It managed to break loose again, however, and was eventually caught
near the,C.P.R. wharf. Meanwhile
Father Verbeke was taken to Dr. >
Knox's surgery, and though not
seriously hurt, was found to be
suffering from several bruises and
cuts about the face. He was sufficiently recovered from the shock
to drive back to his home at the
Mission the same evening.

The War Canoe club met in
Lequime's Hall last Monday evening for the purpose bf re-organizing,
only a small attendance being
present. It was decided to go
ahead this year with the club, and
to get together various races, both
local and in the district. The foi- ,
lowing officers, were elected:
President, Mr. G. C. Rose; vice-
president, Mr. Chas. Harvey; sec-
treasurer, Mr. F. Wilgress. Mr. W.
Crawford was again elected captain, with Mr. Chas. Harvey 1st
vice-captain and Mr. Cather 2nd
vice-captain, and captain of the
junior war canoe team. A committee, consisting of Messrs. G.
Woolsley, W. Crawford, F. Wilgress, H. Cather and Chas. Harvey
were told off to draft out rules and
to get together the boys for this
year's team, and also tb make
arrangements for races, both up

The back drop for the second
scene in the " Mikado " has been

Koko's garden.
-We regret to report the death of
Mr. McKie, who was a new-comer
to this district, and who had taken
up his residence on the benches.
The death occurred Friday last
from heart failure.
We beg to inform our numerous
customers that we have sold out
our interests to Messrs. P. Burns &
Co., of Calgary, and that although
the name will be changed, the
same good quality of meat will be
supplied by the new firm.
The change has made it necessary for us to collect our accounts
at once, and for this purpose we
would ask all who owe us for supplies to settle for same either by
cash or note in the course of the
next few days. Mr. Wrigglesworth
will be leaving the town shortly,
and it is desirable that all accounts
should be squared up, so that a
definite return can be made and
the partnership dissolved.
Thanking you for past favors,
and hoping you will give this matter your attention,
Yours truly,
The first consignment of meat
for Messrs. P. Burns & Co., arrived
from Calgary on Monday last.
Some very fine joints were among
those shipped in.

Mr. W. Crawford may leave on
a trip to Winnipeg shorty to attend
the grand re-union of the veterans
of J 885, it being the 25th anniversary of the taking of Batoche, which
was captured after three days' solid
fighting. Mr. Crawford was attached to the Winnipeg Field Battery,
and was in two engagements. One
at Duck lake on March 24th, 1885,
the other at Botache on May 13,
14 and 15th of the same year, and
is now counted among the veterans. ■
An invitation to the' re-union has
been forwarded to him, and it is
possible that he may join in the

decorate the graves of their
comrades, and march through the

The Orchard City Record.
Pic-nicing at one of the many beauty spots
on the Okanagan Lake.
The  Orchard City
of British Columbia,
Is credited with more winnings in open com-
petition: with fruit from all parts of the American
continent, than any other city in B.C.
There cannot be a»more desirable spot than
Kelowna and district for the man who wants to
let up a little on the hard toil of the prairie, or
to the family looking for a more congenial spot
to settle in, where life's necessities, together with
a few pf its luxuries, will not take so much of
the sweat of the brow in the winning.
Come in out of the cold and the wet. Enjoy
the Sunny Okanagan s long beautiful summer
whilst making your little pile, with the comfortable assurance that you will not have to suffer
through a long, cold, tedious winter. There is
no winter here as a prairie man understands it,
the thermometer rarely going down to zero.

of the most profitable industries in

growers can easily net $100 to $150
an acre. From $35 to $80 per acre
is made by letting the ground on
shares. All the leaf that can be
raised here will be handled and
cared for iocaiiy.
Many important projects are under way or materializing in and "around Kelowna, and a very large amount of
capital is being introduced into the Valley Land is steadily increasing in value, and property which two years ago
sold for $50 an acre, to-day fetches $100 to $150 per acre.   The same when planted out to orchard realizes not less

A  Horrible   Russian   Prison   Utterly
Isolated From the Living World.
The following wonderfully vivid de-
icriptiou of a grim Russian prison
where many a man—and woman, too,
for that matter— has suffered untold
torture of mind and body, is from an
article in McClure's Magazine:
In the middle of the River Neva,
where it flows out of Lake Ladga,
there lies a tiny island surrounded on
three sides by the turbulent waters of
the river and hemmed in upon the
fourth by the cold and stormy lake.
Upon this island stands a very ancient fortress enclosed by high walls
more than 20 feet in thickness. This
is the fortress of Schlusselburg._
Day and night sentinels, relieved
every two hours, pace around the top
of these walls, keeping a vigilant
lookout on every hand. No one from
within the fortress, not even the
soldiers or gendarmes, is allowed to
communicate with the people who
dwell upon the banks of the river.
If the unwary fisherman chance3 to
drift in his boat too near the walls
of the fortress he is greeted by the
shout of a sentinel, aiming his rifle:
"Away! Or I shoot!"
Not even the Dead, sea, in the
deserts of Asia, is so utterly isolated
and cut off from the living world' as
is this fortress of Schlusselburg, which
lies within 40 miles of St. Petersburg.
The regime and the aspect of the
prison were carefully thought out and
planned, being, as the ministers visiting the Schlusselburg repeatedly declared to the prisoners, intended to
demonstrate to them that it was destined to be their grave. The cells are
constructed in such a manner as constantly to remind the prisoners of a
tomb. The stone floors are painted
black and" the walls dark gray.
The window panes were opaque, so
that no ray of sun ever penetrated
within the cells and no trace of color
from without could be caught by the
prisoners. The iron bedstead was
turned up by day and chained against
the wall, and only a little stool, also
fastened in its place, allowed the
prisoners an occasional rest from the
incessant stride backword and forward across the floor of the cell.
This pacing back and forth was in
fact the only diversion permitted, to
the prisoners. No books were given
to them except the Bible, no work for
their hands, no color for their eyes,
no sound for their ears.
Cut off from the living world, buried
in the black stone cells, clothed in the
dingy'prison garb, with one sleeve
black, the other yellow, they strode to
and fro from corner to corner of their
cages. Their food was abominable;
bread, half? aw, made of rotten flour,
and a plate of hot water in which
floated a few shreds of meat or the
traces of an onion.

What a Bureau Really Is.
When parchment was used for
writing and when bookbinding waa in
its infancy and a bound book was
a costly luxury it was the custom to
place the book on a piece of cloth
or a strip of wool in order to prevent the binding from possible damage on the rough wood of the table.
Those who had to deal with money
also had a strip of cloth on the table
or counter so that the coins should
not roll. This strip was called "bureau." In course of time the custom
changed, and the same word was applied to the writing table covered with
green or other colored cloth and at
length descended to the modern table
with the centre protected by leather.
As an office contains one or more of
these tables it is not difficult to understand that the name should in
one country have been given to the
room that contained the bureau.

Heads  Much  Alike.
Most expert craniologista insist that
it is extremely difficult to determine
sex from the skull, but admit there
are a few distinctions which taken together indicate Bex. Perhap. the most
marked distinction is the prominence
of the bony projection over the nose.
The  skull  in  man  is  thicker  and
stronger,  and  the  mastoid processes
beneath the ear are larger.   Broca is
authority for the opinion that if the
skull rests on the mastoid processes
it is almost certainly a man's,   in
woman the top of the head appears
flatter, while in the masculine head
the curve from  before  backward is
more smooth and even.   Greek sculptors always recognize this.

Ceilings and Ventilation.
Rooms with low ceilings or with
ceilings even with the window tops
are susceptible of more perfect ventilation than those with high ceilings.
In such rooms the leakage at the windows, which is constantly going on,
keeps the air in motion throughout
the room, whereas if the ceiling is
higher only the lower part of tho ait
is moved, and an inverted lake of
foul and hot air is left floating in
the space above the window tops.
This lake, under the law of diffusion
of gases, keeps actively at work, fouling the fresh currents circulating beneath it.
