.Governrnent Packing School Arranged - Will Hold Annual
Banquet - V. D. Wade Appointed Secretary.
A meeting of the Farmers' Institute was held Wednesday afternoon at 3 o'clock, with president
Speers in the chair.
Mr. Speers explained that the
meeting" was originally called to
|,hear a lecture from Mr. D. Sutherland on " Bees," arid also from Mr.
J. U. Dunne on "Sprays and Spraying." Owing to unforeseen circumstances both these gentlemen were
absent, and therefore the meeting
had, to be confined to., the general
business of; the. institute.
Mr. Speers then referred to his
visit to Victoria as delegate to the
meeting  of the  Central Farmers*
Institute.    He said that Kelowna's]
resolutions    were   practically   the
only ones which, had been tabulated and sent in to the Government
beforehand. ..   Consequently   they
had  been  well  received, and  all
had been passed with the exception of the one asking the government to give a grant to further the
growth'of tobacco in the Okanagan.
He said-that great interest had
been showp  in  the work of the
Institute, and that ri6jfe\ver,than^4J
(ji delegates Lad  attended  the convention.*:   The   showfed  that   the
'interest in the work was growing.
(He  thought  it was high time the
:-members  here  got together and
searched for more farmers to join1

'appointed by the small attendance
at their lectures, and^this; was a

He had pointed out to '^item-%!^
Victoria that it -was not-much 'Use
a lecturer trying to describe a pest
or    disease   on . the   blackboard.
What was wanted was fop a practical man to-come down and give
demonstrations to the farmers in
the  orchards   themselves.       The
result was that the government had
promised to send an expert to go
V through the orchards of the members and  explain the  cause and'
cure for any pest or disease which
-, might be troubling them. A promise was- also made to send down
an  inspector of bees as soon as
ppssible. v
The question of a grant for
-tobacco experiment Vas the only
one turned down, but he thought
that a grant could eventually be
obtained if the government were
' approached in a different manner.
He went on to state that the
deputy minister of agriculture
would be coming here, together
with another fruit man, and that he
would ask the meeting to consider
the advisability of giving them a
lunch. ThVsy8tern^6Fgi^hglunch«i8
he explained, was usual in other
parts and he would like to see the
same system carried out here. He
then called upon Mr. Raymer, who
was also present at the convention
to address a few words to the
Mr. Raymer endorsed what Mr.
Speer had said with reference to
the motions already passed, and
said that he was positive that if
the government ,was approached
the right way, that the depart-

more  pupils if
d\d not
the shed
ment of agriculture would see their
way clear to give a grant ef $500 to
'the experiment of tobacco growing
in the valley. •
Mr. Speer asked the meeting why
they should not take some steps in
getting the governmet to start a
packing school here. He said he
had taken the matter up with Mr.
Hobson and Mr. Winslow, and
they had  agreed  that the school
I, could be run here as long as the
desire was felt for it. The Board
of Trade had been written to'in
reference to the subject, but they
had decided to refer the matter to
the agricultural and horticultural
department of their body, and he
was not sure of any definite steps
being taken on that score. He was
of the opinion that the institute
should take the matter "up, to work
hand in hand with the. Board of
, Trade,    and    that   arrangements
should be made for the school to
start on February 24th.    Summer-
V land, he stated, had offered to take
some more  pupils it  we
wish to move on the matter.
The move should be made, cc n-
tinued Mr. Speer, and the expense
in connection therewith would. not
be very great. All the government
required providing was a suitable
shed for. packing, with, fuel and
light. They also wished the town
to find its pupils so that the school
could" start without delay. The
difficulty in finding a shed would
not be very great. He had spoken
to Mr; W. C. Cameron, president of
the Farmers' Exchange, and had
found vthat possibly there would be
space enough in the old exchange
building and that that
would be willing to loan
for the purpose.
Mr. Burtch.said he had seen Mr.
Winslow with reference to the
subject, and he had- sail that a
grant was wanted to pay expenses.
Mr. Speer was  of  the  opinion'
that the only grant required was a
fee'of$l from each person.
7" A;> motion7was  put through accepting ;the .governmertt's offer of
a^acking school, arid, a committee
consisting of Messrs.- F. R. E. De
Hart,  T. "P.  Hill, Hy. Burtch, and
R.  S.  Hall,  appointed   to   make
arrangements.^. An advertisement
should  also Tbe  inserted  that:;tlv_
school A should  open" on the 24th
of February.'    -Ay-' 7:-A
y The next questionof importance'
was,;the-.- givingVbf^ a; banquet;• to
Ws^A. • Scot£ . deputy ^minister of
agficuTlire,'and^Mr.i Metcalf when
they visited the town on the 2nd
of March. ■
Mr. DfeHart cpnsidered -that it
would not be'possible to give, the
luncheon out of the funds of the
Institute as the finances were not
very great just now. ■ -,.--
Mr. Dolsen was of the opinion
that a good live committee should
be formed to get together a regular
banquet, tickets being sold to defray expenses.
Mr. Speer agreed with Mr.
Dolsen and thought that a general
meeting: of the farmers at a banquet
would be a good chance of them
getting together and finding out
the benefits of the the Farmers'
Mr.DeHart said he would like
tb see the banquet an annual affair,
and wished to put a motion before
the meeting as follows: " That the
Farmers' Institute hold an annual
banquet. The first one to be held
on March 2nd. 1910."
The motion was carried unanim-.
busly and the following committee
was appointed to look after the
preparations and sale of tickets :
Messrs. Raymer, DeHart, M. Hereron, ;G. P. Dolsen and Mr. McEachern.
Mr. Do(§en suggested that a
committee should also be formed
to look into the question of placing
the general grievances ofthe farmer before the deputy minister.
Mf. Raymer said that in the
Department of Agriculture Building
at Victoria there was a large frame
hung showing the various medals
taken by the towns in B. G, and
the only one (conspicuous by its
absence), was Kelowna's. He had
spoken to Mr. Scott about it when
at the conventionand he had asked
" Did Kelowna win any medals ?"
The secretary was instructed to
ask for experts to be sent down to
lecture on ' Irrigation and Poultry,'
and also to request a man to be
sent to give practical demonstration
in the orchard.
Mr. Wilks handed in his resignation as secretary, which position
he said he was unable to keep
owing to the fact that he would be
leaving shortly for New Zealand.
Mr. Raymer complimented Mr.
Wilks upon the interest he had
taken and the whole assembly
showed their appreciation by loud
and prolonged applause.
The directors, after accepting Mr.
Wilks'8 resignation, appointed Mr.
V..D. Wade as secretary for the
present year. j

7'With reference to the endorsing |
of a  motion  put forward by the
Vancouver City Council, asking the
Provincial government to take over
the handling of all telephone systems,   it  was decidedr to  let the
matter remain  on  the table, until
the next meeting of the council, as
the aldermen  present   considered
that the matter should be gone into
by a full council.
Aid. Stirling announced that Mr.
Aviss was willing for a special
clause to be put in his agreement
with the City whereby he agrees not
to lease or sub-let a portion of the
foreshore granted , hin* by the
council for the purpose of carrying
on his, business as boat builder.
Constable Hidson attended, and
asked the'council to discuss the
advisability of swearing in a special
constable to act for the city, as he
was now a provincial constable and
could not act for the City. He
drew attention to the fact that the
Chinese s were celebrating their
new year, and that the likelihood
of fire was very great. .
Aid. Cox advised that steps be
taken to remedy several dangerous
chimneys in Chinatown. He
requested to consult tne city
i'or in reference to the passing
of a by-law governing the construction of chimneys and the removal
of dangerous ones.
The council agreed that some
steps should be taken in the matter
and promised the question their

The idea of having a National
Apple show for Canada seems
now pretty certain to be realized.
The project can claim as having
as its orginator Mr. Maxwell Smith,
editor of the Fruit Magazine, for it
was in one of the initial issues of
that periodical that Mr. Smith first
put the project before the province.
Since this appeared the matter
has been threshed out in nearly
every fruit growing town and district in the province, and the idea
heartily endorsed.
It now appears that the first
Canadian Apple show will be held
in Vancouver some time in November, and a meeting was consequently called in the offices of the
Vancouver Tourist and Information
Association last week.
This meeting, besides heartily
endorsing the project, formed
themselves into a strong committee
to carry the scheme through. The
chairman of the meeting was Mr.
J. N. Ellis, while Dr. Rowe, of Vancouver, was present in the capacity
pf secretary.
A brief statement was made by
Mr. Maxwell Smith, in which he
set out the great success the National
Apple, show had attained in the
States. He referred to the keen
interest already manifest by the
different public bodies in British
Columbia in the proposal to hold
Such a show in Vancouver. Resolutions, he went on to say, had. been
adopted by all the agricultural
bodies who were congregated together , at the ' annual convention
held in Victoria only a few days
back, The newspapers had written
much in praise of the scheme and
advising its adoption. Mr. Smith
further added that he had the
support of all the members of the
Legislature, whom he had interviewed.
All present heartily endorsed the
project, and formed a provisional
committee with the idea of requesting the mayor to call a public
meeting with the object of forming
a permanent society or association
to look after the welfare of the
scheme. '
The following were appointed
to act on the committee: The
mayor, Sir C. H. Tupper, K.C., and
Messrs. H. A. Stone, president of
the board of trade; F. J. Procter,
president of the Tourist association;
J. J. Miller, president of the Exhibition association; A. E. Buchan,
acting president of the Canadian

decided at a recent meeting of the
association in Victoria.
President H. Puckle, in the course
of a brief address, frankly admitted
that the association had not been
doing what was expected of it.
Interest in the organization had
apparently waned,'and the membership at present was down as
low as 97. In this state the association could not do useful work and
the results of such. work as was
carried \ on were not satisfactory.
The fee had only been $1.00 and
and yeJf the membership did not
increase. Mr. Puckle felt that the
fault lay. not in the matter of fees
but in the association itself. It was
his sincere opinion that the whole
body should be reorganized.
Considerable discussion followed
amongst' the members who were
present, and W_ E. Scott, deputy
minister of agriculture, after it had
been explained that there was a
suggestion to have the association's
affairs taken over by the department of agriculture, made an address, in which he told of the
arrangements for -aA .■ :■■■

in April, when the matter would
be decided definitely. All districts
of itjie province, ,l"4r. Scott said,
would be represented by delegates

constitution could be redrafted and

" In past history." he writes, "the

utilized by the agitator and' fanatic
to raise the masses of the, peoples,

moon: yet this is a phenomenon
of not infrequent occurrence."
To guard against such possible
dangers Lord Crawford suggests
that a series of. popular articles
should be communicated to the native press, written in the vernacular,
" announcing and giving welcome
to the comet which now returns to
visit our system after an absence
of more than seventy years."

Editor Orchard City Record,
Dear Sir,—Kindly allow me to
mention through your columns that
many of us have seen the necessity
of forming a Women's Protective
This need has been felt for some
time, but has been emphasized by
the recent actions of public officials
who look lightly upon violence
and insults inflicted on a most inoffensive young lady. In view of
the garbled accounts of this affair
which have been circulated, the
police commissioners have now
been requested to publish an
official 'report of the enquiry and
its results.
It is fortunate that the girl so injuriously treated in this instance
has so many friends, but the callousness of. the authorities shows
us in what position any lonely
woman might be if attacked by a
man of unbalanced mind.
The chief object of the League
is that no woman in our cit}' shall
find herself friendless when she is
molested, or when she suffers from
harshness or maladministration of
the law.
The secretary will be glad to receive any further names of those
sympathizing with the objects of
the League, and also to furnish on
request any information that she
can regarding the legal and.political status of women.
Yours truly,
Sec. Women's Protective League

Editor Orchard City Record,
Dear Sir,— What is the city
paying insurance premiums on the
power house for ? At the ratepayer's meeting held before the
election Mr. Leckie stated that
if he had been insurance appraiser
the city would not have got one
cent of insurance, as the condition
of the policy had not been complied with, by allowing the sawdust
to  be  stored  inside the building.
Answering a question as to what
he would do with the sawdust, he
said: "You put me there and I
will show you."
Notwithstanding    Mr.   Leckie's
bluff and  bombast the conditions
as  regards  the  fuel  are  just the
same as they were before the fire.

February thus far has proved a
trying time on the wood pile. As
much, or almost as much wood
was burnt during the first week in
February as during the last three
weeks in January. A glance at the
temperature readings will explain
why this is so. When the mean
temperature for a week figures out
irom 16 to 20 degrees of frost is is
mighty cold weather, no matter
hijw fine and bright the days may
seem. In fact, February has been
quite a bit of a josher—making us
think we were having the finest
kind of weather and all the while
the wood pile was slowly but surely vanishing into thin air.

on Wednesday last. The opponents, try as they would, could not
get away from a 2-2 pack, even
with extra time played. Maybe
the " head" rooter was the cause
of it.   Eh ! boys ?
Summerland people are expecting the C.P.R. to commence the
builing of their new wharf as soon
as the spring open up. The location of the new structure will be
north oi- the present wharf, and
near the bathing house.

Cardinal Manning's Tomb.
The Archbishop of Westminster, unveiled an effigy over the tomb of the late
Cardinal Manning in the crypt of Westminster Cathedral. The tomb occupies a recess in the crypt corresponding to the recess
opposite, which is reserved for the relics
of St. Edmund, Archbishop of Canterbury,
and on it has been placed an effigy, cast
in bronze, representing Cardinal Manning
an archbishop in his cappa magna, and
holding his biretta in his hand.
From the arch over the tomb will be
snspended the cardinal's hat. The cost of
monument, which was designed by Mr.
Adam Acton, was about £700. Previous
to the unveiling a Requiem Mass was sung
to Felice Anerio's music.
Famous Hatter Found Dead.
Henry Heath, probably the most famous

political, literary and fashionable world.
Australia's Yenture.
The first unit of the Australian navy was

Mrs. Asquith did the honors. In christening the premier's wife said: "First born of

God bless you. May you uphold the glorious traditions of the British navy in the
dominion overseas." The Parametta is a

Final Election Results.
The final returns from the English
elections are to hand, and the standing of
of the various parties in parliament is as
follows: Liberals, 274; Unionists, 273;
Nationalists, 70; Labour party, 41, and
Independent Nationalists, 12. The Welsh
elections resulted in the return of 25 Libs.,
4 Labour and 1 Unionist.
Neto British Cabinet.
It is regarded as probable, in well informed circles, that Augustine Birrell will
succeed Herbert Gladstone in the home

secretaryship being succeeded in the
presidency of the board of trade by John
Burns. Burns probably will be succeeded
by Charles Hobhouse, who will thus get'*
seat in the cabinet. There is naturally the
liveliest interest in Premier Asquith's programme. Ardent Radicals demand enforcement of the old principle " redress
before supply," in connection with the
* Lords' veto, pointing out,. in reference; to
the Unionists' disparagement of the Irish
status, that, excluding Ireland the Premier
has a majority of 40, which is sfficient to
justify the strongest action. The Unionists,
on the other hand, do not hesitate to declare that Asquith, recognizing the dffi-
culties of his position,- is on the verge cf

Tt)« Devil's Race Course In the Blue
Ridge Mountains.
"Tbe Blue Midge mountains abound
in natural wonders." observed an old
resident of I'euuiur. "Most wonderful
of theui all, lu my opinion, Is the Devil's Race Course, which is but a short
walk froiff'l'emnnr.
"At Urst view this strange natural
phenomenon appears like a broad
roadway of great stones which extends away up the mountain in a path
oo human band could ever build.
Many of these great stones weigh
tons, while others are only a few iiuu-
dred weight. Lyiug close together by
the thousand, tbey present au extraordinary spectacle.
"Tradition bas it and scientists agree
that a tbousaud or more years ago
this strange track was the bed ot an
ancient river. The conclusion is drawn
from the looks of the stones. Tbey
are all well rounded and worn smooth,
showing tbe action of water, which
bad polished their rough edges no
doubt for centuries.
"But the mystery Is It this theory be
true to explain bow tbe great body ol
water was conhned at the sides, for
tbe course Is not hemmed in by high
banks, nor is It located in a ravine.
In fact, It stands somewhat higher
than the natural side of the mountain.
Tbe puzzle only intensities interest tn
tbe queer place and multiplies tbe arguments and theories of its prehistoric
origin."—Baltimore Americau.
A 8tory About a Cow and the Calf
She Licked.
An absurd story is cited about a
cow, showing wb.t creatures of habit
animals are. This particular cow
would Dot stand to be milked unless
she could lick ber calf at tbe same
time. For a long time sbe always had
a calf of some age or other to lick,
but at last by ill fortune one ot her
calves died.
There Is no reason why a bereaved
mother should mourn ber loss just at
milking time, but there was tbe fixed
habit of making certain motions. The
farmer, however, was a practical
psychologist. He stuffed the skin of
the calf with bay and let tbe cow
have that to lick. To be sure, tbe hay
calf bad neither bead uor legs, but a
cow bas no general ideas concerning
the nature of calves nor any special
reason for assuming that calves should
have heads and legs. It felt right, and
it smelled right it enabled ber to go
through tbe customary motions at
milking time. Therefore it was sufficient
By dint of caressing and licking ber
little calf tbe tender parent one fine
morning unripped it Tbe bay Issued
from within, and the cow, manifesting not the slightest surprise or agitation, proceeded tranquilly to devour
the unexpected provender. — EL X,

Shall I Drink?
From " A Young Man's Questions," by
Robt. E. Speers.
The habit of drink, whether regular or
not, is a wasteful habit. The American
Grocer estimated the expenditure of. the
United States for beverages in the year
1900 as follows:
Alcoholic drinks  $1,059,563,787
Coffee       125,798,530
Tea         37,312,608
Cocoa  6.000,000
The men and women who spend this
billion and fifty million dollars for strong
drink have nothing left to show for the expenditure but some weakness hidden away
somewhere us the sole consequence. The
beer habit, which is the easiest habit for
young men to form, is as bad as any in this:
It can be indulged anywhere, and its
innocence is imaginary. " Beer kills quicker
than any other liquor," said an old physician. IVly attention was first called to it-
insidious effects, when I began examining
for the life insurance. 1 passed unusually
good risks, five Germans—young business
men—who seemed in the best health, and
to have superb constitions. In a few years
I wai a-.azed to see the whole five drop
oil, .'C after another, with what ought to
have been mild easily curable diseases.
On conparing my experience with that of
other physicians, I found they were all having similar luck with confirmed beer drinkers, rnd my practice has since heaped
confirmation on confirmation.
At a recent meeting of the New York
Academy of Medicine, the question of the
effects of alcoholism  was discussed, and
. Dr. Charles L. Dana spoke of having studied caref.lly three hundred and fifty cases
of alcoholism atBellevue Hospital, of which
the most frequent form was dipsomania
and the next pseudo-dipsomania. Over
two-thirds of the whole had begun
drinking before the age of tweuty years,
and all before thirty years. As a rule, the
drunkard did not live more than fifteen
years after hit habit had been confirmed.
Whether beer or spirits, the effects of their
use are bad. Why should a man begin a
wasteful habit, which is io easily carried to
excess, which even if not carried to excess
does him no good, and does do him positive
. harm?
It is true, that in some associations, it is
hard for a man to refrain from drinking.
Many young men grow up in homes where
; wine is always on (he table. They are in
business relation where it is regarded as
the natural thing to drink, and peculiar to
absiain.    But conscientious principles are
respected everywhere when they arei pleasantly but firmly adhered to; ard even if
the principles are not conscientious, but
merely prudential, they will be offensive tr
no one, to whom they are not made offensive, by some personal unpleasantness on
the part of the one holding them.
The principle of abstinance should Lc
with us a conscientious, not merely a prudential principle. Our moral jud^meit
should so revolt from the terrible abu3e oi
liquor and the liquor business, that we
will refrain from the use of drink as the on
ly effective protest. The terrible risk ol
one act issuing in a second act, and thai
in a third, andjthat in the birth of a habit
with all possible consequences should maki:
us fear for ourselves, while what we sccoi
wreck and ruin around us shouldlc.vj us to
abstain for our brother's sake. This is the
high religious ground. Drinking keeps u.
back from the best in ourselves, and it
hinders us from the best helpfulness lowaro*
others. It is religious principle alor.c thai
will really stand all the tests in this matter,
as religious principle alone can effect whal
needs to be effected when men have gone
too far. At the meeting of the New York
Academy of Medicine referred to, Dr. Alien
Starr confessed " that the only reformer,
drunkards of whom he had knowledge,
were those who had been saved, not throug!
medical, but through religious influence.'
He declared his belief thatperiodical drinking was chiefly a matter fo moral obliquity.
The great^word for the young man is
"liberty." He wants to be free. Oftentimes he begins to drink with the idea
that this is a sign of his independence.
But this is the use of liberty for the purpose of enslavement. He only is free who
is master of his tastes and appetites, arc!
can look the temptation to drink calmly in
the face, and say, without wavering, " No.''
The man who says: "That is no liberty
That is slavery to hard asceticism, and is
cowardly. I am free because I can say
' Yes ' or ' No' as I please," may be telling
the truth about himself once in many
times, but for the rest, he thinks he can
say "No" when he wants to do so, because he never wants to do so.

was born near Bayonne in the Brst
half of the sixteenth century. Martin
Guerre was the son of a well to do
farmer and brickmaker, and, as was
the custom of- tbe country at the time.
he married at the age ot eleven Ber-
trande de Rols, who had then reached
the age of ten. For eight years they
lived together.
Unfortunately Martin stole a bushel
of corn from his father. Frightened
by the heinousness of his crime, be deserted bis wife and fled to Spain.
There he entered the service of Em-
peror Charles V. and after several
years of campaigning seems to have
forgotten his wife, Bertrande. and his
baby boy, Sancho. At any rate, he
ceased to write home, and his family
lost all trace of him. His absenr-e
stretched on to eight years.
Then one evening a stranger arrived
at the tan of the village where the deserted wife was still living, lie at
once told his host that he was Martin
Guerre and recounted the adventure*
and hardships that had kept him from
home so long. The rumor of Martin
Guerre's return soon spread, and his
four sisters hastened to tbe hostelry
to welcome him home. Tbey found

The upshot of the matter was that

Licenses for Salteries.
Hon. W7J. Bowser, chief commissioner
of fisheries, has not (led the British Columbia Salmon Canners' association of Vancouver that he has decided to grant -their
request for the abolition of the license fee
of $100 on fish salteries under certain
conditions. In the past where a saltery
was operated within a cannery building the
$100 license was imposed, even though the |
canners paid another license fee of.$100 on
his cannery as such. It was requested that
the fee be abolished where such works
were conducted in buildings already taxed
as canneries. The chief commissioner of
fisheries stipulates that the fee of $100 will
not be imposed on salteries conducted in
buildings already licensed as canneries provided saltery is owned and operated by the
owners of the cannery. If the saltery «»
farmed out to other people the license fee
is imposed. All salteries operated in
buildings not licensed as canneries will be
required to pay the $100 license fee" as in
the past.

New Edison Wonder.
Mr. Edison recntly gave the first public
trial to an electrical apparatus, which he
claims will revolutionise motor and railway
travel. This is the long-promised storage
battery. It was installed at New Jersey in
a apecial tramway-car carrying twenty-passengers. Equipped with 210 cells, arranged under the seats, 200 of the cells were
for propulsion and ten for lighting the total
horse-power being fifty. The car took a
ten-foot grade with ease and ran easily under seemingly perfect control. Electrical
engineers, while reserving public comment,
admit that the battery had done what its
inventor had claimed for it. The cost of
driving the tramway-car with the new battery is a halfpenny a mile.
Church Work in Canada.
At the annual meeting recently of the
central board of missions it was announced
that archbisops of Canterbury and York
intend issuing a strong appeal for church
work in Western Canada. The Archbishop
of Canterbury wrote: "I do not think
there has been an occasion of greater
urgency, anxiety and responsibility in the
history of the church beyond the seas."
The Bishop of London said he wanted the
church in Canada to be a " British Christian
Church." If they did "not do something he
said Canada would growj up with no
British and no Christian church.
May Ash for Local'Option Bill.
" The question of local option is likely
to come prominently to the fore again,
notwithstanding the general understanding
on the part of the public that the matter
was disposed of when the plebiscite was
taken for the whole of the province,"
writes a Victoria correspondent of The
Province, who adds: "As the majority
was not sufficient to give the principle
efiect, or in other words to bind the
government to bring down permissive
legislation, the idea is prevalent that that
was the end of it for the time being, or
until a sufficient time had elapsed to
justify the conclusion that public opinion
had sufficiently changed to again appeal to
it by means of a plebiscite. It appears that
the leaders of the local option movement
are taking another view of the situation,
and will demand that legislation will be
introduced and passed to give local option
effect in municipalities or districts" which
have declared by a majority in favour of
it irrespective of the views of the rest of
the province.
Baden-Powell Coming.
" Be prepared," the watchword for the
Boy Scouts movement, has a special application now as the result of news
received from London to the effect that
General Baden-Powell, the founder and
head of the movement, will shortly retire
from the command of the Northumbrian
territorial division to devote his time to
the organization of the Boy Scout units
throughout the empire, and will in August
of this year appear in Canada. The
general will bring with him a patrol of
scouts from the old country to see and be
seen. His visit is timed for well on in the
summer, and tbe leaders of the movement
throughout Canada are confident that the
Canadian Scouts will make a brave
showing when they muster before " B-P."

U. S. Firm Will Build Argentina
Competing against the armament builders
of the world, the Fore River Shipbuilding
company, of Quincy, Mass., has just been
awarded contracts for the construction of
two new Dreadnoughts for the Argentine
government. The documents were signed
at the Argentine legation in London,
England, by the letter's minister and Rear
Admiral Francis T. Bowles, U.S. N., retired
president of the company. The vessels
will cost $11,000,000. Rear Admiral
Bowles said: " Our success simply means
that the United States has seriously entered,

Canon Netoton Dies at Victoria.
Right Rev. Canon Newton, one of the
earliest misssionaries on the prairies, died
at Cadboro Bay, near Victoria last Thursday. He was one of the first missionaries
'who answered the call of the Bishop of
Saskatchewan in 1874 to serve in the district, and he wrote "Twenty Years in
Some Queer Cases of Child Stealing
In Britain and Europe.
Fourteen years' penal servitude—
that is the punishment aet by British
law for the offence of child-stealing.
Perhaps it is this severity, combined
with the fact that judges have small
mer_y upon the offender, which has
made the crime known as "kidnapping" so rare.
But that the crime of kidnapping is
not extinct is proved by the recent
Southend case, where a baby 14 days
old was stolen from its parents.
So lately as last March the whole
of America was stirred by a kidnapping crime of a most sensational kind.
A ten-year-old boy, namod Willie
Whitl% mysterioly disappeared on his
way home from school. His father,
a well-known lawyer, employed scores
of detectives. They discovered nothing. $.
Then came anonymous letters, demanding a ransom of ".10,000, failing
which the boy would be killed. The
sum was at once handed over, but
there was still no sign of the boy. .The
letters, however, gave a clue, and a
man named Jamps Boyle and his wife
were arrested. The woman confessed,
ind was sentenced to 25 years' imprisonment, while the man got a life
In Italy there is a considerable traffic in unfortunate children stolen from
their parents and taught to beg for
their kidnappers. Fifty years ago a
similar form of child-stealing was not
uncommon in England. Even now
it is not quite extinct, for not long
ago a woman was charged at the London sessions with taking an eight-
year-old boy from hi3 parents.
She had found the child in Bethnal
Green road, and, decoying him away,
had forced him to sell matches. Luckily, a policeman noticed the little boy
crying bitterly, and, after questioning
■him carefully, discovered the truth.
The woman is now serving a five-year
term of penal servitude.
A most extraordinary case of kidnapping occurred not long ago in the
Channel Islands. A man, moving
from Jersey to Guernsey, left his 12-
year-old boy' as the guest of a friend.
Presently came tbr> startling news that
the friend had sold his house and left
for America, taking the boy with him.
The father, with detectives, hurried
to Liverpool, and caught the runaways
just as they were about to embark.
He declined to prosecute, and took his
son home.
A week or two later the kidnapper
pturned up again in Guernsey. Next
morning the boy was again missing.
The father rushed to the landing
stage. The mail steamer was leaving.
He wired to Weymouth, and when it
arrived there the boy and his captor
were both aboard. This time prosecution and conviction followed.
As Eddy Krie^er, an American boy
of 12, was playing in a garden near
Hamburg two masked men sprang upon him, gagged him and carried him
off, while his mother, who saw the
'dramatic episode from an upper window, screamed mildly for help. In
this case the instigator of the kidnapping was the child's own father. He
and the mother had been divorced
some years before, and the mother
had the custody of the child.
In 1904 the father stole the boy at
Chicago and fled from the United
States to Germany. The mother, with
the patience of a weasel, got on the
scent, followed, and invoking the aid
of the German law; regained her son.
But she had him with her only 24
hours before he-was stolen -gain in
the manner described.—London Answers. $
"The Top of the Morning."

air/the invigoration of body and
spirit, the impulse to start with the
birth of the day to do all things well
until the sundown brings its rest and
happy reverie and "depths of incommunicable dreams"—if you go a-walk-

went on, looking straight into his

What Jack Tar Means?
Mr. A. H. Bluke, M.A., lecturing
recently in London before the Photographic Society, said that few people
know tho reason why our sailors are
so often called "Jack Turs." The
name dates from tlie days of gossiping Samuel Pcpys, and is an abbreviation of the word "tarpaulin." It
came into use to distinguish the real
practical seaman, who knew his business, from the "swell" officer, who
did not always do so.

public hall which was held in the

or to do full justice to each performer. The song by Miss Stewart
and Mr. Whittaker, and the duet
by ^Messrs. Whittaker and Hall
were exceptionally fine. Mr. H.

A painful accident occurred at
Rutland last Friday afternoon,
when Willie Quigley was severly
hurt through the overturning of his
rig, delivering goods for the McDonald store, at Mr. Harry Hall's.
The democrat was upset whilst
turning around, throwing Quigly
underneath. His head was badly
cut, and one ear was almost torn
off. Mrs. Hall tied up his head
and no one else being near the lad
drove home to the store, where the
doctor was phoned for. The
wounds being stitched and bandaged up, he was taken down to the
hospital the doctor's auto.
The latest reports of Willie
Quigley show that he is progressing favorably towards recovery.
The chief danger is that of blood-
poisoning, which the doctors are
doing their best to avert.
Rock is being laid this week on

Tbe apparatus is not. however, the
"nictitating membrane" which all of
us have perceived tn looking even at
the barnyard fowl. That Is a mechanism designed merely to wipe the eye
and to keep it clear of dust.
M. de Chardonnet's discovery was
made while he was studying the transparency of the central part ot the eyes
of animals, lie bad already noticed
that the eyes of night birds, such as
owls, were more transparent than any
other for ultra violet rays, and he had
tried to push tbe experiments further
by ascertaining whether they would
be affected by ultra violet rays alone.
These experiments tailed because of
the absence of responsiveness on the
part of the birds, which did not ap
-pear to trmnifest any sensation in passing from darkness to light, whether
this list was visible to human eyes or
not. XI. de Chardonnet's failure led
bim to Inquire whet Iter there was nn..
organ of which he was Ignorant in the
bird's eye. such us would intervene in
such circumstances.
While dissecting a bird's ey» lie was
struck to find an organ to which
French naturalists have given provisionally the name or the peitrno or
comb. A better .idea of its lunt lion
would be obtained by calling it a parasol.
This organ is formed of a very thin
membrane, black-opaipte and situated
in the eye where the optic nerve penetrates it. The structure ot this membrane is such that the retina is completely masked when ihe "parasol" is
.open. It is reasonable to suppose that
the parasol is there lore a screen w
protect the eye against a loo priliiaiii
light, whether the liirhi Is visible lu
tlie ordinary sense oi whether it consists of ultra violet ra\s.

Terry Upheld  His Better Half in

"Mercy me!" an Id Mrs Terry. "Your
father's left his umbrella: Here. Willie,

car comes!" She thrust an elegant
gold handled umbrella into Willie's

swing Itself up the steps. And the
car moved on.      ^
As Willie stood wen- a man approached.
"What's the matter, son?" he Inquired.    Willie elucidated.
"Well." said the man. "that's easy.'
I'm going downtown ou the next car,
and I'll take It to. him."
Wben Willie returned without the
umbrella his mother rejoiced.
"Vou caught him. did you?" she
smiled.    Willie shook bis bead.
"But I did the next best thing,
mother," be said. "I gave It to a man
who was going downtown to give It
to him."   Mrs. Terry stared at bim.
"Who was the man?" she asked.
Willie looked foolish.
"I don't know," be said at last "But
be looked honest." -.•
"That umbrella cost $12." said Mrs.
Terry sternly. "Come here to me."
And shortly thereafter people passing
wondered who was being slain.
Tbat evening Mr. Terry returned
bearing the umbrella. Mrs. terry gazed
at it, fascinated.
"Where did you get it?" she asked.
"Why," said .Mr. Terry, "our neighbor Mr. Wilkins brought it to me—
said you sent it." .;•-, .
"And to think," said Mrs. Terry, "1
whipped Willie for giving it'"to a
strange man."
"Well." said Mr. Terry judicially, "I
don't think it will hurt him. true, be

of such a first class business as that which
was untill lately owned by. Mr.'Blackwood
has necessitated the .sinking of a large portion of my capital, in stock, and other necessaries, and I am now obliged to ask my
various debtors to give;me a helping hand.
I have always ■ been willing to extend
credit to the full extent of my ability, and
will continue to do so, but the cost of
rendering an account month after month is
very great, more'especially, when it it dealing with a business which has since been
handed over to another firm, and from

It is simply an impossibility for a
watch to keep good time unless it
. is kept in good condition. It may
go by fits and starts, and vary in
time keeping, caused by a broken
jewel or faulty escapement, but. it
can't keep good tim<j.
If your watch is going "crazy" bring
it in and let me report on the
cause bf its "fits." ' '
Charges moderate, and all work
absolutely guaranteed.
