A meeting of the City Council
was held on Saturday last, a full
attendance of ' aldermen being
present, with Mayor Sutherland in
the chair. After the n.inutes of the
previous meeting had been read
and adopted, the following accounts were referred to the finance
committee, to be paid if found

By-law No.'7-1, being a by-law
to raise the sum" of $3,500-to pay
for the re-building o. the municipal
power house, destroyed, by fire on
the 3rd day ol Jm?\^W%^w&
read a first and secon3* time. This
by-law was to be voted on by the
people, and some discussion arose
' as to the length of time same should
be advertised before being submitted to the people,. It was agreed
that same should be advertised for
ten days, as the law provides, and
that a general meeting should be
called to explain to the ratepayers
its purpose. The by-law was called
the Power House Reconstruction
By-law of 1910.
By-law No. 71, being a by-law to
raise the sum of $ 10,000 for water
extensions,' was next read a first
and second time.
Aid, Leckie stated that at present
it was not certain how many people were^Tequiring to use water if
the.system was extended, but he
had heard that several people were
clamoring for a water extension.
Some discussion arose as to what
pipe would be the most preferable
to lay down. Several aldermen expressed their partiality to wooden
pipe.      :■ "-"V ■■"--• -'"'
Aid. Stirling, however, pointed
out that wooden pipe was not
lasting as well as had been expected.
Aid. Harvey said that the soil
: here was very hard on steel pipe.
It was, however, considered that
cast iron pipes would perhaps be
better. Two wooden pipes, it was
said, could be put down for the
cost of one steel.
Mayor Sutherland pointed out
that Vernon was at present using
cast iron pipes, Vancouver steel,
and South Vancouver, wood. He
considered some statement as to
the satisfaction they were giving,
could be obtained from these
Aid. Stirling did not agree with
adopting the wood pipe system,
and issuing twenty-five year deben.
on same. He considered twenty
years would be sufficient.
Aid. Jones agreed upon this
■ Mayor Sutherland said the drawback in using steel pipe was that
it would cost more than wood, and
would not be landed here for about
four months.
Aid. Jones suggested that as the
wood pipes would only be laid
about 3 feet deep they would be
laid in surface water, which might
possibly get into the system and
affect the purity of the supply.
Aid. Cox asked upon the amount
of pressure the wood pipes would
stand,   to   which   question   Aid.
■■■   '    .  ■   ,
Leckie stated that the pipes were
bound with wire, and the closer
they were bound the more pressure
they would stand. Returning to
the question of the number of years
the debentures should be issued
for, Aid. Leckie said that South
Vancouver had issued 25 year
debentures. It was decided to read
the by-law as providing for 25
year debentures.
Mention was made of the absence
of stop cocks outside buildings to
turn: the water off in case of a leak.
One leak had occurred recently,
and a man had to be engaged to
dig down and find out where the
feed pipe joined the main. His
account had been left blank, as he
was at work for six hours at a
special rate. The rate was left in
the hands of the finance committee
to adjust.
Mr. B- McDonald attended, and
asked the council to have Water
street and Cawston avenue- fixed
ready for the spring traffic. He
mentioned that a meeting of the
directors of the Farmers' Exchange
hadNbeen held that day, and he
was requested to approach the
council with the idea of getting the
matter fixed. It was agreed to refer the matter to the board of
rworks to report at nextTrneeting.
It was suggested that a special
meeting of the committee should
be held at 3 o'clock to go.over the
street and see what cpuld be
done. -       * . v

and asked that the club should

Mayor Sutherland replied that
the council did not wish to discuss
matters until it had passed through
the hands of the committee who
had charge of the department, and
promised a reply to the request as
soon as the committee had gone
into it.
Aid. Harvey reported that he
was taxed for certain property on
the bench by the Government as
well as by the City, and asked if
the limits of the Okanagan School
district could be defined.
The mayor stated that the ques-
tion of boundaries would be taken
up right away.
Aid. Cox asked if the police
commissioners had come to any
decision as to the appointment of
The council met again on Monday. The minutes of last meeting
were read and adopted.
Aid. Cox, referring to the accounts passed, asked if it was usual
to pay for the writing out of bylaws. He had noticed the sum of
six dollars charged to the city for
that purpose.
The city clerk explained that the
by-laws referred to were very long
ones, and were prepared in refer-
to the issue of debentures.
The finance committee reported
in reference to an application made
by the Farmers' Institute for a
grant. They considered that the
institute was a matter affecting the
country district, and is besides a
provincial organization under the
direct control of the provincial
government,, and therefore not
proper to be benused from the
city's funds. With reference to
the Hospital account inthe matter
of Mrs. Magee, the committee considered that the grant made by the
city to the Hospital should cover
such cases as this. It was decided
to adopt the committee's report.!
The board of works decided
upon motion of Aid. Harvey,,see-
onded ey Aid. Stirling, that Water
street be graded and gravelled
from Cawston avenue to Bernard
avenue where it is necessary to do
so to make it fit for traffic.
The next question was the accepting of a subdivision plan, and the
following motion was carried:
"That the council accept thf subdivision of Block 9, Map 186, provided that the cross street be continued to meet the street oniKe
north side of Mr. Marty's sub§iv->
ision and ""continued' west to lake'

Mayor Sutherland replied that
the commissioners had had a
meeting, but had adjourned.
Aid. Leckie reported upon the
alleged delay in blowing the whistle
at the power house during the fire
at the Rowcliffe Bros*, warehouse,
arid had found out that the delay
was caused owing to a defective
telephone. The repair was made
by Mr. Millie at six o'clock that
evening, and all was now correct:
Mr.. Millie, however, had promised
to put in an eight inch gong outside the telephone box so that no
future delay would be recorded.
Aid. Leckie also reported upon

weeks past, being attacked with
heart trouble, which eventually
caused his death.
Mr. Newby came from England
to Manitoba in 1882, at which
point he followed the trade of a
tailor. He, however, did not continue his business when he cairie
here, but lived a retired life in his
residence in Glenn avenue.

winter    session    of- the  Literary
T^Society took place on Friday even-
"^'uiif^astA Tfie'^Iibol^libti^^as
well .filled,   a . large^ number ; of
visitors being present.   A real first
class  brogramme had  been  prepared, and the ladies provided refreshments, to which all did ample
justice. The arrangements throughout' were    carefully    made    and
nicely carried out, adding greatly
to the enjoyment of the  meeting.
The programme was contributed
to by the following:   Mr. and Mrs.
Gray,  Miss   Stuart,   Misses   Gay,
Miss   Gladys   Bird,    Miss    Hope
Goodrich, Miss, Miss Marion and
Consuello  Woolsey, Mrs.   Dolsen,
Mr. Schwab, Mr.  Whittaker,  Mr.
Lang, Masters Ed.  Goodrich, Jim.
Baker and Arthur Gray.  A tableau
was presented oy Master Jimmie
Baker and Miss Lillian Sproul. An
amusing feature  of this  was the
effect of the lime light which drove
all those with weak chests  out of
the hall for a little while. A humor-
k>U8 sketch was given  by  Messrs.
Lome Sproul, Mezzic and J. White.
Another pleasing feature was the
competitions, which raised a good
deal of laughter.     Mr. Gray won
the  men's  hat trimming  contest,
Mr.  Victor  Dilworth  getting   the1
booby prize.   Mrs. Goodrich won
the ladies' nail driving contest, Mrs.
Baker, being the worst  carpenter,
got the booby  prize.     Dr.  Baker
and Mr. Hereron made short-addresses, Mr. Woolsey,  also being
called upon, was unable to disentangle  his  legs from  the   school
desks.  Altogether a very enjoyable
evening was spent, and many were
the  good  wishes for   the  future
welfare of the Literary Society.
The  packing  school started  in
the new Farmer's Exchange building last Monday, with Mr. James
Gibb as head packer.   The space
in the building was kindly lent by
the Exchange, and Mr. Gibb had
two special tables fitted up, sufficient to take eighteen pupils' and a
large assortment of Ben Davis apples    ready  to   be   packed   andj
repacked by the various pupils.
-,   On the opening day only   two
pupils turned up to the morning
session but the   afternoon  saw a
better turn  out,  eleven being the
total number of persons who were
desirous of learning the art of how
to pack fruit.   The attendance has
been increasing  day by  day, but
many of those  who  promised  to
attend were  called  away out of
town   to  perform  various duties,
owing to the sudden, and  unexpected call of spring with its attend-
ent work.    Nevertheless the classes
are still  well  attended,  and   Mr.
Gibb has found it necesary to start
an  evening   class which  he will
run himself for the convenience of
those who  cannot  attend  during
the^ day.     The  morning  class at
present starts at 9 o'clock and the
afternoon class at 1.30.   Both these
classes are of two and a half hours
We paid a visit to the school
last Monday and learnt from Mr.
Gibb many interesting details in
the fruit packing trade. Careful
grading of the apple is one of the
essential points in good packing
and, this, is mostly done by eye. So

an easy matter after a time tp grade

We are requested to announce,
on behalf of the Kelowna representatives at the debate held in
the Benyoulin Presbyterian church
oh March 4th last, that as the supporters of the Rutland Debating
Society have expressed themselves
as much dissatisfied with the officials of the debate as to decision
and time allowed their speakers,
that they would be very pleased to
meet again the same two or any
other two members of that society
on the same subject, giving to
Rutland the affirmative side of
the resolution, which was Kelowna's
side of the former debate, same to
be held at any place and at any
time they may choose.
ends of the boxes,
three and others four tiers. In the
straight pack apples giving four
rows on top of one another are called a four tier pack while the same
number of tiers in the diagonal
pack are called three and a half
tier packs. The diagonal pack is
the one that Mr. Gibb is attaching
the most importance to, in as much
as it is considered a better and
more desirable pack than the
straight or solid pack.
Mr. Gibb was fortunate in obtaining a good assortment of apples
and of a hard variety. He considered the Ben Davis apple the
hardest to pack and said " If I can
teach them to pack these properly,
they will be able to pack any variety in future."
The diagonal pack is recommended because it allows the fruit to
press evenly in three places instead
of only one, which is the case
when the fruit is packed in the
square or solid style where one apple is placed diiectly on top of
the other. Another point in packing is the placing of the apple in
the box. Where the stem is long
the apple is placed calex end
down so that it will not bend over
and cause a bruise on the apple.
The bulge or swell is made by
placing the larger apples in the
centre of the box, and when looking at the completed pack the centre
apples project about an inch above
the sides of the box. At the two
ends however they barely project
at all. By this means the lid presses firmly on the surface of the apples, and keeps them in position.
It is proposed to continue the
school for another week, which
will make two weeks in all that it
will have been running.
Mr. Gibbs evening classes will
be held between the hours of
7 and 9 oclock.
Matters ofthe utmost importance
to this part of the valley are now
in course of discussion in the
Provincial Legislature. First, perhaps, comes the Canadian Northern
bill, which has passed its second
reading, and a letter haa been received and filed from D. Mann to
the effect that no Asiatic labour
would be employed in the construction of the line.
The Kettle River Valley line,
another which will be of great
importance to us here, is now before the house.
The bill provides for the following lines of railway :
(I.) A line from Grand Forks,
up the north fork of the Kettle
River, not less than 30 miles.
(2.) A line from Midway to
(3.)   A line from Penticton to a
junction with the Nicola, Kamloops
and. Similkameen   Railway, near
Nicola. The lines to be of standard>
gauge and to be built according to .'
such specifications as to make thems
practically uniform in construction
with the lines of the Great Northern *
or Canadian Pacific railways when
originally constructed.     It is also
agreed to give the government a   ,
a bond that following construction
the said lines will   be   operated   <
continuously and throughout the'
whole length thereof.
Arrangements in the bill are also
made.for purchase of all possible --■
materials within the province, and '..

The Jonathan Apple
In view of the fact that Canadian
fruit-growers, particularly in British
Columbia, are planting a large
nnmber of Jonathan apples and
that we hope to develop considerable fruit trade with our cousins in
Australia, the following, from the
Melbourne Australasian on the
Jonathan will be of interest to
apple growers:
If a plebiscite were to be taken
to determine the most popular
variety of apple grown in Victoria,
the result would undoubtedly place
the Jonathan at the head of the
list. Notwithstanding that public
opinion is of a very transient nature
so far as it taste for fruit is concerned, it seems likely that in the
case of the Jonathan an exception
is to be made. Only a few years
ago the Ribston Pippinand Adam's
Pearmain varieties were most in
demand, and despite the exquisite
flavor of the former and the attractive appearance of the latter, they
are now comparatively worthless
from a commercial point of view,
so far as this state is concerned.
Many another variety of fruit has
met with a similar fate, due to no
explainable reason. But there are
many causes that will prevent the
Jonathan from gradually decreasing
in favor as a midseason apple. It
has probably been more extensively planted than any other variety,
and has been accorded so gr.eat a
demand, both for local consumption and for the oversea trade,
that growers are commencing to
specialize with it, a fact that indicates that many another variety will
be less evtensively cultivated, if
not altogether supersede- by the
favorite. Moreover the Jonathan
is of ' attractive appearance, of a
flavor, keeps well in cool storage,
and, above all, is admirably suited
for planting out in almost every
part of the state. These are advantages that the fruit-grower can
not afford to overlook. An increased production is, to a great
exten equivalent to an increased
demand, for a retailer is bound to
purchase such varieties of fruit as
he finds he can regularly depend
upon to carry him over the greater
part of the fruit season.
Several years  ago  the average
Jonathan tree more often than not
appeared to be almost a.weakling.
• The trees frequently looked as if
they were being grown under un-
.-    congenial     conditions,   and     the
branches often seemed as if they
had not sufficient vigor to carry a
crop.      The spreading charncter-
,     istics of the variety and the lack of
a proper system of pruning were,
no  doubt, largely responsible   for
conveying   this   impression, which
probably  was accentuated by the
appearance    of    the   number   of
stronger  growing  varieties which
then predominated in the orchards.
Since the production  pf fruit has
overtaken local demands, and thus
caused greater competition, growers have been forced to pay more
attention to their trees, and to expect from  them, when  properly
treated, an increase  in yield and
quality   commensurate    with   the
extra  care   bestowed upon them.
Nowadays, the successful orchard-
ist, '^hen he finds that a tree is not
making a profitable return, cuts it
. down, and reworks it to some other
variety, and though he finds it hard
to  do  so, he  knows that only by
this means can he expect to make
'   fruit growing a success.    Much the
sam'7 r.oiirs'-   of  events  is  taking
pi rice  with  regard  to the pruning
of  trees,   particularly  so  far as it
concerns    the   treatment   of   the
Jonathan.      The   practice   which
now-;..exists   to some small extent,
,bti.. v.Arh   =i   few years ago was
f>:.;     .•-''..'I'fil,  of cutting the light
lule. al k':• • ">is close back to near the
main- limbs, or  for   that matter to
a b!c»A-v<*    t the base, did more
to   iiijui     tii'    tr-es than all other
trentim.rit  combined.    But a more
:. inrellegent  system  of- pruning  is
rapidly   altering  this  condition of
affairs, and wherever the  method
/allowing the light laterals to run is
followed, the trees present a more
sturdy and fruitful  appearance.—

Lambly, west of the lake, and ha.«
options on an additional 1000

When the King Traoels btj Rail.
His Majesty the King recently travelled
in a Pulman car attached to the ordinary
3.40 express from London. The moment
the train steamed out of the station, says a
Daily News correspondent, the usual regulations for Royal travelling- were flashed by
telephone and telegraph down the line
from signal box to signal box. All the
way travellers were cognisant of the ex-
caption precautions taken to ensure the
safety of the train. Over the distance of
52 miles, which the 3.40 train covers without a stop, there stretched a line of platelayers who waved a green flag as the train
passed. Each plate-layer was stationed at
a certain point, usually beneath the home
or distant signal, also held in his hand a
red danger flag, neatly folded up, which,
following the usual practice, was to be
used only in case of emergency, or if the
arm of the signal was " up" instead of
"down." Each man was so placed as to
be within call of the next man along the
line. The passengers showed great interest
in the system of guarding the King's train,
but fctr of them noticed that at nearly
every bridge along the line there stood a
solitary policeman. It was the duty of
this policeman, acting on instructions, io
guard the public approach, to prevent
people trespassing on the line, and to see
that nothing untoward happened. There
was hardly • farm crossing, a bridge, viaduct or a tunnel that w s not watched by
an official of some sort. It was every signalman'* duty to see that the tail of the
train still bore the little red disc which
was placed on it before the train started.
Few passengers knew, too, that the Royal
brake next Jp to the salooon contained a
breakdown outfit, with screw jacks and
springs, an instrument for establishing
telegraphic communication in case of
emergency, and the necessary complement
of mechanics.

Some of the World's Inhabitants Eat
315 Meals During One.
If we should meet a man and he
uhould casually remark that he ate
315 meals yesterday we would doubtless be somewhat astonished at his appetite. Likewise we would feel sorry
for the man who said that, having
foolishly eaten three <>kj;s with bacon
for breakfast, he had no appetite for
his Christmas dinner. 15ut maybe the
first man was from Spitsbergen, where
they have a day three and a half
months In length, whereas the poor
chap who missed the Christmas feast
lived in Finland, at Toreua, where
Christmas day is something less thar
three hours long.
On the whole. It would be rathei
wise if one should undertake to do
certain work, to receive so much per
day In payment, to understand just
where tbe work Is to be done, else one
might have to labor eighteen and a
half hours at Stockholm, If It happened to be the longest day of the year,
or all the time from May '21 to July 22
if at Wardbury, In Norway. In St
Petersburg the longest day Is nineteen
hours and the shortest Ave hours. At
Torena, Finland, there Is a twenty-two
hour day. At London and Bremen the
longest jJay Is sixteen and a half
hours, while at Hamburg and Dantzig
there are seventeen hours In the longest day. In Washington the longest
day is about fifteen hours.—Exchange.

Propounded In Pross, It Was Answered
In Rhyme.
In the olden time before the war,
the days so famous for generous hospitality In the south, a brilliant party
•was assembled at dinner in a beautiful country homestead. Across the
table wit flashed back and forth, and
the guests began to vie witb one another In proposing conundrums.
Mr. Alexander H. Stephens offered
one which puzzled the whole company,
"What Is It that we eat at breakfast
and drink at dinner?"
For some time no answer came, and
the bright eyes of the southern orator
began to sparkle with triumph, when
Colonel Johnson, taking up the "Commonplace Book" of the hostess, which
lay conveniently by, wrote Impromptu
upon the flyleaf the following answer:
What is eaten for breakfast and drunken
for dinner?
Is It coffee or eggs or butter or meats?
Sure double the stomach of obdurate sinner
Who eats  what  he  drinks and drinks
what he eats.
But let us consider.   TIs surely not butter
Nor coffee nor meats, wheiher broiled or
Nor boiled eggs nor poached nor fried In
a batter.
It must, then, be breart.    Ah, yes—when
'tis toast!

Blackburn's Eloquence.
The story Is told of .--enatoi ,1'roctor
of Vermout In reminiscences by Vicq
President Stevenson ihui when invite^
to go out of tlie seflntf chamber just
before the day's session began he replied: "Excuse me. I am paired with
Blackburn on prayers." Wben tha
Rev. Dr. Butler retired from the
chaplaincy of the senate Blackburn's
speech surpassed all others for ardo*
and felicity of expression. "The counterpart of the scene that followed hia
closing words had never beeu witnessed In legislative assembly. All
were In tears. It was even said that
venerable senators who had never shed
a tear since the ratiticatlou of the
treaty of Ghent actually sobbed aloud
and refused to be comforted. At
length, amid silence that could be felt,
an adjournment was effected, and tbe
senators passed out to their homes. As
he passed the chair Senator Vesl in an
undertone remarked to the vice president,  'Joe  never  saw   him.'"
The parliamentary register for 1896
showed that there was then only one
pot walloper lu all England. One seeing the term for tbe Urst time might
easily Imagine that a pot walloper was
a species of Ichthyosaurus or some other reptile of a past age. It will be discovered upon Inquiry, however, that
the term "pot walloper" Is literally one
who bolls a pot and was applied to voters In certain boroughs of England
where before the passage of the reform bill of 1832 tbe quulldcatlous for

Splendid Young Couple Now Occupy
"5 Leopold's Throne.
Prince Albert, of Flanders, who has
ascended the throne of Belgium aa
successor to his uncle, the late King
I Leopold II., is a man of strong personality and few characters have been
bo scrupulously formed. He has a
passion for work, a minc|, always alert,
a hunger for 'knowledge got at first
hand. Like Leopold II. his mind is
of the positive order, directed toward
the practical side of life. But where
the two natures differ is in the application of these qualities. Leopold II.
had what one might call a "combinative" genius; he possessed a rare,
swift faculty for developing the most
subtle financial combinations, and he
saw in a flash the practical results
that were to be expected from any
situation. King Albert, on the con'
traiy, has no gift for speculation, and
great economic questions interest him,
not on account of the direct or indirect advantages to be secured by
this or that solution of a problem, but
because he regards them as factors to
be reckoned with in promoting the
general welfare.
To Leopold II. the individual was
nothing.   The individual was merely
a force he could employ in carrying
otit bis great plans.   King Albert has
,a profound respect for the individual,
■for his capacity as a producer, and
for that reason he has cultivated   a
spirit of rigorous, absolute justice. He
is not haughty; he is not overbear-
'ing; he even   allows himself   sometimes to be influenced rather too far
;by sentimental   arguments.   A   man
who knows him well said:   "His is
the most loyal and the most deeply
'Iranian  spirit I have   ever had   the
privilege of acquaintance with."
Some have been saying of late that
Albert I. would be a "socialising"
iking, and at Brussels there are those
'who declare that, but for his royal
,birth, he would become a Socialist
land a follower of Vandervelde. This
;idea of a Socialist king is amusing
jbut purely fanciful. If the brevet ol
socialism were for those who sincere*
jly seek the solution of the grave problems that to-day present themselves
;to. every mind attentive to the new
[conditions of social existence, one
imight accept it. But only, gross error
icomes of extending the signification
jof the term. It would be nearer the
'troth to say that King Albert shows
(broadly liberal tendencies—this with-
joot using' the word - in its narrow,
party meaning—and .that his very
jconception of the life of modern
ipeoples must "allow him to accom-
imodate himself quite readily to a sane
democracy. From this point of view,
one may assume that the model whom
the new king of the Belgians will
! logically set before himself will be
; Leopold I. rather than Leopold II.
iand that, like his grandfather, he will
ibe a scrupulously constitutional king,
but without neglecting to insist upon
.bis kingly prerogatives and make
them a means toward carrying his
\ ideas into execution.
■ The new king is 35 years of age and
.his queen, whom he married in 1900.
is the Princess Elizabeth, daughter of
Duke Charles Theodore, of Bavaria.
They have two sons and a daughter.

One of the most unpleasant of the
sheriff's numerous responsibilities is
that of seeing that criminals sentenced to death are properly executed.
And if the hangman should fail him
and no one be willing to act as deputy
the sheriff must enforce the capital
penalty himself. Not many years
ago one of the sheriffs of Middlesex,
a well-known baronet, on taking office
hanged a prisoner with his own hands
on the principle, he said, that he did
not care to ask another man to perk-fen a duty he would shrink from fulfilling himself.

Rapid Growth Demands
More Capital
Financial Iastitutionto Erect a Ten-
Storey Building in Vancouver - Men
Prominent in Provincial Affairs at
News which will be of great interest to
Vancouver residents and provincial investors generally as indicative of the almost
magical progress and growth taking place
in Vancouver, is the announcement made
by the directors of the Dominion Stock
and Bond Corporation, Limited, that they
have reorganised the company and increased the capital stock to $2,000,000.
1° is increase in capitalization is rendered
necessary by the rapidity with which the
business of the Corporation is growing,
and is directly in line with its contemplated
projects, which include the erection of a
magnificent new modern ten-storey office
building of brick and stone.
From the beginning, the history of the
Dominion Stock and Bond Corporation,
Limited, has been one of remarkable success, constituting a fine record of progress
which is all the more praiseworthy because
it is characterised by permanence and
stability. Oricinally established to buy
and sell real estate, to invest funds for
clients, handle bonds and debentures, it is
now proposed to w den the field of the
Corporation's activities to include those of
a loan and savings business, administer
estates, and other duties of a fiduciary
In addition to its Vancouver business, the
Dominion Stock and Bond Corporation
conducts a branch office at Nanaimo, where
a consideable volume of business is transacted, and it is their intention to open other branches in different towns -and cities
throughout the province as opportunity
Plans are now being prepared for a ten-
storey building, consisting of 310 offices
and 13 stores of different sizes, and a
ground floor basement containing 1,500 to
2,000 safe deposits boxes of various sizes,
to be erected in a central location in Vancouver. This building will be entirely
modern throughout, with hot and cold
water, steam heat, electricity, compressed
air, telephone, signal and fire alarm systems,
and will be, in every respect, the best that
modern engineering, architecture and construction can produce. The cost is in the
neighbourhood of $600,000.
This increase in capitalisation and ! usi-
ness expansion will in no degree interfere
with the present activities of the Corporation, which will continue as usual. Thus
the money invested will be put to work at
once, and immediately begin earning interest for its owners, for there will be no
delay, as irt building up a new business.
The location of the present offices of the
Dominion Stock.and Bond Corporation is
an exceptionally favorable one, being on
ground floor of the Winch Building, near
the new Post Office.
As an Institution is only the lengthened
shadow of a man, the success of any financial organisation   depends  almost  wholly
upon the character and ability of the men
at the head of affiars. Hence the Dominion Stock and Bond Corporation is particularly furtunate in having on its Board of
Directors men of the greatest prominence
in the province, who have proved successful in all their undertakings, and secured a

At this season, especially,
these germs are sure to be

is foulness or decay.

life in all its form, its use
is easy and inexpensive;

Local Option for Dogs.
Controler Church voiced the complianU
ofthe dog owners of the city of Toronto
at a meeting of the board of control. He
presented a petition which he said contained nearly ten thousand names, urging that
the Dominion government be asked to allow Toronto to have "local option" on the
question of muzzling dogs. Controller
Ward was the only other member who
favored the suggestion, but the matter will
be finally dealt with next Wednesday, when
dog fanciers will be in attendance to present their views.
Shusteap and Okanagan.
In the course of his speech in presenting
the estimates, Hon. V^. J. Bowser said : " As
you are aware, the)Shuswap and Okanagan
bonds were guaranteed on the condition
of the province receiving the subsidy granted by the Dominion, of its being secured
by a first mortgage on the line and of obtaining 40 per cent, of the gross proceeds
from traffic. This was considered a fair
bargain at the time but as the traffic returns have been based or the basis of the
long haul, the share of the province has
not all been what was anticipated. I propose to undertake an audit of the Shuswap
and Okanagan for the purpose of determining to what extent we are entitled, if
any, to a larger share of the traffic receipts
since the opening of the line."
Warships on Great Lakes.
For the purpose of obtaining a modification of the treaty between the United
States and Great Britain prohibiting the
maintenance of. vessels of war on the great
lakes, so that such vessels could be constructed there for use elsewhere, the house
at Washington passed a resolution that
may open the question for future negotiations. The resolution called, on the secretary of the' navy for information as to
present obstacles in the way of the
construction of vessels on the great lakes,
the dimensions of vessels that might be
constructed [there and passed ^throuh the
locks to the seaboard and the nature of
bids that had been recreived for for such

It is announced that the merging of

Hamilton Ontario. The merger takes in
about fifty-six canning factories in that

Nelson and the Liquor Lain.
The license commissioners of Nelson
have decided to anticipate the provisions

were notified that after April I there must

[Kettle Valleij Railway.
Although public attention, says the
News-Advertiser, has been chiefly fixed
on the Canadian Northern scheme, the
benefits that will accrue, from the agreement made with" the Kettle River Valley
Railway Company'should not be'overlooked. By the construction of the line from
Midway to Penticton, an outlet to the south
will be opened for the traffic passing over
the Shuswap and Okanagan Railway.
Still more important is the arrangement
included ! in the agreement whereby the
Kettle River Company will build a line
from Penticton to Nicola making a junction
there with the line from Spence's Bridge
and thereby giving a direct route between
Vancouver and the Boundary Creek distiict.
The time now occupied in the journey
between these two points will practically
cut in half and our coast cities be put in a
position to compete on equal terms with
the cities on the other side of the boundary,
which hitherto have had such a large
proportion of the trade of that district owing to their lines of communication with it
being so much better than those possessed
by our own mercantile community.
Surprising sweet is the rose's breath,
Which fills for an hour the chamber of death
Where a spirit hovers, and a heart all worn
By the burden of sorrow upon it cast,
Is stilled at last;
And kind hands all torn
By the briers of life, lie folded and still.
Surprising sweet is the dying bloom
In the narrow window, the sunless room.f
Where the lustreless eye and the faded
Tell their own story, too deep for tears-
How poverty sears
The heart, so human, so strong, so weak,
And life is a cycle whose days are years.

His Response to a Speech of Eulogy at
a Banquet.
William H. Rldelug tells In Mc
Clure'8 Magazine of u dinner of the
Papyrus club In Boston at wblch Henry M. Stanley, the explorer, waa the
guest of honor:
"Whether he (Stanley) sat or stood,
he fidgeted and answered ip monosyllables—not because he was unamiable
or unappreclatlve, but because he—this
man of Iron, God's Instrument, whose
word In the field brooked no contradiction or evasion, he who defied obstacles aud danger and pierced the heart
of darkness—was bashful even in the
company of fellow craftsmen.
"His embarrassment grew wben aft
er dinner the chairman eulogized him
to the audience. He squirmed and
averted his face as cheer after cheer
confirmed tbe speaker's rhetorical ebullience of praise. 'Gentlemen, I Introduce to you Mr. Stanley, who,' otc.
The hero stood up slowly, painfully,
reluctantly, and, with a gesture of deprecation, fumbled in first one and then
another of his pockets without finding
what ho sought.
"It was supposed tbat be was looking for his notes, and tnore applause
took the edge off the delay. His mouth
twitched without speech for another
awkward minute before, witb a more
erect bearing, he produced the object
of bis search and pat It on his head.
It was not paper, but a rag of a cap,
and wltb that on be faced the company as one who by the act bad done
all that could be expected of bim and
made further acknowledgment of the
honors he bad received superfluous. It
was a cap that Livingstone bad worn
and that Livingstone bad given bim."

Rises In August and Disappears Regularly In February.
One of Michigan's unsolved mysteries is tbe island tbat every summer
comes to the surface of Lake Orion
and every winter goes back again to
the depths from whence it arose.
Its periods of appearance and disappearance are nearly regular. It
comes to the surface about the middle
of August and goes down again about
Feb. 15. What causes It to act thus
strangely is a conundrum that none
has been able to solve, but to keep it
above water or compel It to remain in
the depths have been alike without results.
On one occasion a number of farm-
, ers and teamsters resolved to put the
island out of moving business. In
their efforts to do so they hauled many
loads of stone and deposited them on
it during the early part of winter, believing that when It went down in
February It would go down for good,
weighted as It was wltb the stones.
.But the following August saw it bob
up serenely from below - minus its load
of stones.
At another time-an effort was made
to keep it on the sarfuce, and it was
chained to. the surrounding country
with heavy log chains. When Its
time for departure came it departed,
and the log chains departed with it
The log chains were never recovered.
Tbe island is composed of soft mud
and rushes, and there are some skeptical souls who attribute Its formation
and appearance aud disappearance to
the gathering of vegetation In oue spot
by the currents of the lake and Its subsequent decay.

"Window Leaves."
In South Africa Dr. R. Marloth discovered six species of plants possessing what are styled "window leaves."
They are all steuiless succulents, and
tbe egg shaped leaves are Imbedded
in the ground, only tbe apexes remaining visible. This visible part of
the leaves is flat or convex on the surface and colorless, so tbat the light
can penetrate it and reach the interior
of the leaf below, which Is green on
the Inside. Wltb tbe exception of tbo
blunt apex, no part of the leaf Is
permeable to tbe light, being surrounded by the soil In wblch It 1b burled.
The first of these platits discovered is

The Incident That Helped Verdi With
His "Miserere.''
Men of genius are confessedly creatures of mood. Grief nnd adversity
have often been a real help to tbem
rather than a hindrance. Poe, It Is
said, produced "The K.iveu" while sitting at the bedside ot his sleeping but
flying wife. Many similar instances
might be cited, but an anecdote of
Verdi, told by Carlo Ceccarelll, will
On one occasion when Verdi was engaged on his well known opera, "II
Trovatore," he stopped short at the
passage of the "Miserere," being at a
loss to combine notes of sufficient sadness and pathos to express the grief
of the prisoner, Manrlco.
Sitting at his piano In the deep stillness of the winter night, his Imagination wandered hack to tlie stormy days
of his youth, endeavoring to extract
from the past a plaint, a groan, like
those which escaped from his breast
when he saw himself forsaken by the
world.   All In vain!
One day at Milan he was unexpectedly called to the bedside of a dying
friend, one of the few who had remained faithful to him In adversity
and prosperity. Venil at the sight of
his dying friend felt n lump rise In his
throat. He wanted to weep, but so intense was bis grief that not a tear
flowed to the relief of his anguish.
In an adjoining room stood a piano.
Verdi, under one of those sudden impulses to which men of genius are
sometimes subject, sat clown at the instrument and there nnd then Improvised the sublime "Miserere" of the
"Trovatore." The musician had given
utterance to his grief. »

Telegraph Wire Necklaces and Insulators as Earrings.
The aesthetic and decorative uses to
which barbarians will turn objects
which to civilized races are things of
the humblest utility are amusingly Illustrated by—this "fashion note" from
West Africa taken from an Italian
newspaper: .
For some time the officials of the
German colony in Southwest Africa
noticed that the telegraph wires and
other accessories of the electrical plant
disappeared as by magic immediately
after they had been put up. The most
diligent inquiries remained fruitless.
From other parts of the German possessions came reports of strange predilections for articles of German commerce, as, for example, rubber heels,
garters, buckles, and so forth, things
which the natives of those countries do
not generally use.
The governor of the colony gave an
entertainment one year in honor of
the emperor's birthday and invited the
chiefs of the different tribes to It
What was his surprise when be saw
these native gentlemen appear'with
his stolen telegraph wires twisted
round their Illustrious necks. The
higher the dignity tlie more rings of
the wire were round the neck.
Inquiries were soon started In the
outlying villages, ond it came to light
that the white china Insulators of the
telegraph poles had become earrings.
A young lady of the highest distinction in native society wore a rubber
heel hanging from her nose, and a
young man who was u well known
dandy worp dangling from his ears a
pair of beautiful pink silk garters.

As a result of his accident last
week, it was found necessary to
take Captain Knight to the hospital
last Saturday. The injuries appear
to be more acute than was originally
thought, and it is to be hoped that
before long we will be able to give
a satisfactory report of his progress.
Mr. A. R. Davy had an accident
last Saturday, as he was about to
3tart with a load of hay which he
was hauling to his livery barn.
Having previously strapped up the
load with a heavy pole on top, he
put his full weight on the end of
the pole, with the result that it
gave way, splitting in the middle
and throwing Mr. Davy on to the
ground. He landed on his head,
and is still feeling the effects of
his fall.
