Hon. Price Ellison
Offers Free Site
for University
In connection with the bid which
will be made by the enterprising
citizens of the Okanagan for the
establishment of the provincial
university in that district, Hon.
Price Ellison, provincial minister
of lands and representative of the
constituency of Okanagan in the
legislature, has generously offered
to present a free site of one
hundred acres, in every way suitable, should the university site
selection commission regard with
favour the proposals for the location
of the university in the interior
The offered site may be selected
either the southeast or immediately
adjoining the city limits of Vernon
on the north. No conditions whatever are attached to the volunteered gift, although Hon. Mr. Ellison
anticipates that other interested
landowners may add to the
donation. If another location in
the district should be adjudged
more suitable by the commissioners,
the lands minister is willing to exchange his land with the owners bf
the area preferred, so that the site
may still be without cost to the
Rutland News.

Dear Sir:—
As the City Fathers took the
flume up last summer to put down
a sidewalk at the new school arid
did not put it back again, .who is
responsible if we lose our orchards,
fruit and vegetables for the want
of water, water! mountain water,
to sprinkle the orchards every one,
and make the apples and pears
grow as big as a drum ?
We are having fine weather how,
but to enjoy a drive we must also
have good roads, so we are patiently waiting for something to be

Mr. D. W. Sutherland was a
visitor to Penticton on Wednesday.
Mr. W. A. Pitcairn returned
Wednesday from a trip to the Old
Fruit growers and others interested in the industry met in convention last week at Kamloops.
Every part of the province, was
well represented, and every district had some resolution to offer.
The morning session, presided
over by the Deputy Minister of
Agriculture, Mr. W. E. Scott, was
devoted mainly to the discussion
of various matters-at difference between the fruit growers and the
transportation companies which
carry the produce of the interior
orchards down to the prairies of
the Northwest. •   .
Mr. Cameron, of Hammond, and
the manager of the Dominion Express Company did most of the
talking. The former was well
supported by several of the lower
country fruit men and Mr. Helme
had the very diplomatic assistance
of General Traffic Manager'Lanigan
of the C. P. R. The resolutions
discussed all had to do with express rates.
After adjournment i the first
resolution put was one expressing
sympathy with the family of the
late Hon. R. G. Tatlow. This was
carried with due ceremony by a
standing vote.
Then came a long discussion on
the service given by the railroads
and the express companies. £ G.
Earl, Traffic Manager Lanigan, and
the chairman took the most prominent part in this discussion, and
Mr. Lanigan held that the Canadian
Pacific and the Dominion Express
company had always considered
the fruitgrowers of the province,
and that he himself had given a
great deal of time to this work.'" '
Many other resolutions which
had been, sent in were cancelled
for want of a mover, and finally a
general one expressing confidence
in the good will of both railway
and express companies was passed
with enthusiasm.
A number of the representatives
of northwest wholesale firms then
addressed the convention.
On the following day the fruitgrowers met again, and a large
amount of new business was
effectively disposed of before an
adjournment was reached. The
most important matter dealt with
was the reorganization of the
British Columbia Fruitgrowers'
association. The new constitution
as presented by Mr. Scott was
threshed out clause by clause and
several suggested .changes were
adopted. It provides for much
closer relations between the association and the department of
agriculture and should prove of
immense advantage to the industry
in the province.
In the afternoon the new officers
were elected, directors being appointed for the various districts
and these in turn electing from
their number the executive heads.
R. M. Palmer of Kamloops was
chosen president, C. J. Metcalfe of
Hammond, vice-president, and W.
R. Winslow of the department of
agriculture, secretary, R. H. Agur
of Summerland and W. C. Rawley
Richardo of the Coldstream ranch,
together with the above and the
minister of agriculture and his
deputy will compose the executive.
Resolutions were adopted endorsing the national apple show,
Maxwell Smith outlining the work
already done and explaining the
immense advantage which would
be derived from it. Price lists,
market conditions and other matters
of moment to orchardists were
given close attention and were
discussed freely. Victoria was
chosen as the next place of meeting and the association will meet
at the capital in January. After
the close of the proceedings the
delegates as the guests of Mayor
Robinson were driven to interesting
points about the district.
V. V. & E. Line
Going Ahead
A good start on construction
work on the V. V. & E., has been
made on the eighteen-mile section
of railway from Princeton west to
Otter Flat, near the eastern slope
of the Hope mountains. The
sections east and west of the
mountains will be built by J. W.
Stewart & Co.
West of Princeton the sub-contracts have been awarded to James
Welth, J. McPhee, Fred Wilson
and Madden & Hankison. No less
than nine construction camps have
been established. J. Wilson is
driving a 1050ft. tunnel near
Princeton and the equipment comprising two donkey engines and a
steam shovel. The eighteen-mile
section, it is expected, will be
completed before next Christmas.
The work for most of the distance
is quite heavy. The snow in the
vicinity of Princeton has disappeared and summer weather prevails.
A   V. V. & E.  survey   party  in
charge of Mr. C. F. Russell is now
engaged   in  locating  a  line for a
railway between Penticton, at the
foot of Okanagan Lake to Oroville,
Wash., a point on the V. V. & E.
railway on the international boundary line. It is not generally known
that the Great Northern is now engaged   in  building   a   line    from
Oroville to Wenatchee, the centre
of the fruit-growing district on the
Columbia  river  and   a station on
the main line of the Hill road. The
route is down the fertile Okanagan
valley.    The contract for building
the  road  from  Oroville  south to
Brewster,   where    the    Okanagan
river   enters   the   Columbia,    ha*
been  awarded  to Messrs. Guthrie
& Co.. of St. Paul.    Fifteen  miles
of roadbed  south   from  Oroville
have been graded  already.    The
distance' between    Oroville   and
Brewster is about 70 miles.    Once
Wenatchee is linked up with the
V. V. & E. system east of the Hope
mountains,   the   Great   Northern
system will enjoy   an   alternative
route   between    Vancouver   and
eastern points.
Death of Bishop
of Kootenay
The Rt. Rev. John Dart, Bishop
of Westminster and Kootenay, died
last Friday afternoon. He was
stricken with paralysis about two
veeks ago, and very little hope has
been entertained of his recovery.
Bishop Dart was 74 years of age
and came over to British Columbia
in 1895, having been consecrated
by the Archbishop of Canterbury
as Bishop of Westminster. Five
years later the see of Kootenay was
also brought under his jurisdiction.
He was a profound scholar, though
as a preacher, clear and simple in
style, and greatly respected by all
the clergh of the see.
The Bishop was to have visited
Kelowna in May for the confirmation services at St'. Michael's church,
but owing to his illness the arrangement had to be cancelled.
Funeral of the
Late Capt. Tatlow
Explosion and Fire
on British Steamer
A terrific explosion occurred on
the British steamer Cairnrona, off
Dungeness, which wrecked the
women's quarters, killing one child
and injuring a number of women
and children. The steamer caught
fire, and a panic ensued in which
men fought for possession of boats
and had to be beaten back by the
crew to allow the women tb taken
first. A large number of passengers
were landed many of them in an
exhausted condition.
In all twenty persons were ser-
ioiy>)g>T_d not leas thai- fif^ slightly injured by the explosion and in
the panic that followed it.

A general meeting of thepublic,
for the purpose of organizing the
Victoria Day sports, was called for
yesterday afternoon, but the public
did not turn up, only half _i dozen
of the original promoters being
present. Mr. Dumoulin who was
the proposer of the sports this year
decided that ! another meeting
should be called for Friday
(tomorrow) in the Rowcliffe Hall
at 8 o'clock. This hour was likely
to be a better one for the trades
people, and that a better attendance
both from town, and from the
country would be present. The
promoters have asked that a full
representative attendance will be
present in the hall tomorrow.
The remains of the late Captain
Robert Garnett Tatlow, for six years
minister of finance and agaiculture
in the McBride government, were,
interred last Wednesday at Vancouver.
, The government, Vancouver,
Victoria, New Westminster, and
other cities, the bench and bar,
the commercial and industrial life
of the province, the militia, and all
the varied interests in which the
deceased had for so many 3rears
taken such a leading part, were
represented in one of die largest
and most impressive funerals in
the city's history.
The cause  of  death  was  concussion of the brain, sustained in a
trap accident the previous Friday.
So far as is known, no one witnessed   the   accident   itself,   but   the
physician's  examination    showed
that Mr. Tatlow had been  thrown
with terrific  force Jto  the  cement
sidewalk,  alighting  on  hia head.
One of the physicians  stated  that   '
only .the fact that he was  an  ex-'
ceptionally strong rugged man prevented instant death.    There were ,
no • marks visible   save : a   slight   -
bruise on the cheek and a fracture
of the base of the skull, -but the   '
brain   had   been   lacerated,   and '
there never was any hope  of h
The' injured gentleman was removed to the hospital as quickly
as possible after the accident Dr.
O ML;Jones examined him there
upon his arrival; but a very brief
investigation was sufficient to convince the physician that there was
absoli*fe_y^;Bi9 yyJtel&yi ^Gsfebii^
Tatlow never moved after the
accident. Except for an occasional
sharp breath he gave no sign of
life, and when the transition took
place it was peaceful and unmarked.
Captain Tatlow was in his'55th
year, and was a man of fine
physique, in the prime of life. He
had always been fond of out-of-
doors life and activity, and he had
always enjoyed unusually good
health. He leaves a wife, the
daughter of Mr. H. J. Cambie, and
five children, Mrs. Fitzalan Cornwall, of Ashcroft; Jack of the
University school, Victoria; Kenneth and Helen and a baby not yet
a year old, all at home. Of his
immediate family Captain Tatlow
leaves both parents, who reside at
Monkstov/n, near Dublin, Ireland,
and two brothers and a sister also
living in Ireland.
Although expressions of deep
esteem and sincere regret for the
public man so suddenly removed
from the sphere of his useful
activities were  heard everywhere

coupled with manifestations of
poignant sorrow over the tragedy
which has overwhelmed his family,
the high place which the late
Captain Tatlow filled in the good
opinion of his fellow citizens of
British Columbia was not unnaturally especially indicated throughout
the various departments of the
civil service, one and all of the
Provincial officials who had been
brought in touch with the deceased
during his ministerial career voicing
an obvious personal shock and
sincereat personal sympathy for
the family so heavily bereaved,

Editor Orchard City Record.
Dear Sir,— It is with the greatest
reluctance that 1 have to reply to a
report that I see in   your   valuable
paper under the heading of report
of council meetings.   1 see that Mr.
Elliott claims, from reports, that the
night Operator is in   the   habit   of
muffling the night bell.     Now it is
the first   intimation I evei   had   of
like taking place, and if Mr. Elliott
had known of it being done it was
his place to report  to   me.    I   acknowledge that  the   operator  got
rattled on the night of the fire and
put in the wrong plugs, which any
of us might have done'   But when
he says that an operator maliciously shuts off the service, it is a more
serious charge to bring against him.
■*- Now in the first place, it  is   impossible for the operator to get near
the bell, as it is under lock and key.
All the operator could   do   would
be to shut off some certain phone,
which would not then   ring  when
anyone    wished   to   call    central.
This has been done with my consent where  a   drunken   man  was
annoying the operator, and.has only   happened three   times   to   my
knowledge since the  Central  was
I might say that   if you   are   to
believe all the        reports
you hear in a place like this you
are likely to soon be a fit subject
for the Westminster Asylum. 1
fully agree with Mr. Elliott when he
says we want a night watchman,
and then we might be in a better
position to know who set his building on fire.
Sorry to have to trespass on your
valuable space,
I am,
Yours truly
Do You Know
real estate investments are the best in the
Okanagan   in   quality   of   soil,   location,
prices,   etc.,   and   that   they will triple in
value in one year ?   Have you stopped to
consider?      If   not,   just   remember   that
Westbank will be the largest, most industrious, and  influential  place in the valley.
Now ia your opportunity.    Most excellent
bargains.   The lots are cleared, cultivated,
fenced, and have young orchards on them;
well  irrigated,   and   have   good domesti
water.    Prices, $175 to $200 per acre.

A real estate deal of very great
importance to Enderby and district
was closed last week, involving the
Wiley ranche, or the old Fortune
Meadow land. The price named
in the transaction is $45,000. Mr.
Gracie, agent and manager for Mr.
Wiley, and Mr. Little, who has
conducted this end of the negotiations, is going to Kelowna
Wednesday to complete the deal.
Mr. F. R. E. DeHart is the buyer.
It is understood that this is not the
end of Mr. DeHart's purchases in
the neighborhood of the Fortune
Meadow lar.ds. He and his associates contemplate investingheavily
in land in this neighborhood, with
the object of extensive apple growing, and the cutting up of this large
tract into small fruit farms.
Negotiations have been under way
for some time for this place and
also a portion of the F. Hassard
farm. All of this section has water
piped on the ground for irrigation
and domestic purposes, and, lying
so close to Enderby, it would be an
easy matter to get the electric light
service and telephone into every
home parcelled off.
A serious fire was narrowly
averted at the King Edward hotel
last Wednesday. A defective flue
caused the roof to take fire. It was
discovered just in the nick of time,
and by the aid of the handy roof
ladders, an axe and a few buckets
of water the whole thing was put
out in a few minutes.
The Athletic Club is getting busy
on their plans for the coming
season's sport. At a recent meeting
a committee consisting of Messrs.

general charge of the programme
for the season's regattas, of which
latter there will be three held as in
the  past.
The work of building the hotel
is in progress. The contractor,
Mr. Goodman, from Rosedale,
Ont., with his wife and family, has
arrived in town and is locating for
the present in the Palmer cottage.
Part of the material is on the ground
and more is expected shortly.

The One Young   Mark Twain Sprung
Upon the Scientists.
Mark Twain's father was an ornithologist He bad several friends who
were also enthusiasts on the subject of
birds. Whenever any one of them discovered a rara avis it was the custom
to have a consultation. Mark had been
a witness of several of these bird inquests and had noted tbe delight the
old men took iu discussing a new
fouud specimen. One day it occurred
to him to provide the Hannibal ornithologists with a real circus in the
form of a bird. He killed a crow and
also a baruyard rooster. Plucking ont
the tail feathers of both the crow and
the rooster, he substituted the rooster's
vail feathers for those of the crow, producing a unique effect When he had
the specimen nicely prepared he went
to bis father and, handing it to bim,
"Here, father, is a very curious bird
I shot I thought you would be interested in it." **
Tbe old gentleman gazed upon the
specimen witb astonishment That
cvpniug the ornithologists of Hannibal
were assembled In Mr. Clemens' parlor. The rare specimen was put before thorn. The discussion was long
and learued. Tbe opinions expressed
were various. One thought the bird
was an offshoot of tbe bird of paradise family, others bad equally ridiculous notions as to Its ancestry. Bat
there was one who refused to be
swerved by the peculiarity of the
bird's tail from the judgment that it
was of the crow family.
"Why. just look here." be said, lifting the bird by its tall feathers. He
got uo further. Tbe feathers came
out. There was a quick closing of a
door. Mr. Clemens started to leave
the room.
"Qentlemeu." he snid, "please excuse
me a few moments. I will see Samuel

Beer end Disease
Dr. M. H. Parmalee, physician and surgeon twelve years in Toledo, says: "The
majority of saloon-keepers die from dropsy,
arising from kidney and liver diseases,
.induced by beer drinking. My experience
has been that saloon keepers and men
working around breweries are very liable
to the diseases. When one of those apparently stalwart beery fellows is attacked by
a disorder that would not be regarded as
at all dangerous in a person of ordinary
constitution, or even a delicate, weakly
child or women, he is liable to drop off
like an over ripe apple from the tree.
You are never sure of him a minute. He
may not be dangerously sick today and
tomorrow be in his shroud. Most physicians, like myself, dread being called upon
to take charge of a sick man who is an
habitual beer drinker. The form of Bright's
disease known as swollen or large white
kidney is much more frequent among
beer drinkers than any other class of people."
Dr. S. S. Lungren: " The brain and its
membranes suffer severely-, and after irritation and inflammation comes dullness and
stupidity. There is no question in my mind
that many brain diseases and cases of insanity are caused by excessive beer drinking.
Dr. C. A. Kirkley: "Under its influence
the mental powers are more inactive than
the physical, There is hardly a single
cause that operates mores powerfully in the
production of insanity; and not only that,
but it excites the action of. other causes
that may be present."
Dr. W. T. Ridenour: "I have no doubt the
rapid spread of Bright's disease is largely
due to beer drinking. I have always believed
that Bayard Taylor fell o victim to the German beer that he praised so highly. He
died of Bright's disease at fifty, when he
should have lived, with his constitution, to
a ripe old age. He went as other drinkers
are going all the time and everywhere."
Dr. C. A. Kirkley : " I believe that forty-
nine out of fifty cases of chronic Bright's
disease are directly produced by it. 1 have
never met with a case in which the patient
has not been intemperatejo a greater or
to a greater or less degree. The proportion
may be too high, but that is certainly my
experience. Mr. Christain a celebrated
author, states that three-fourths to four-fifth's
of the cases met with in Edinburgh were
in habitual drunkards.*'
Dn W. T. Ridenour: " Beer drinking produces rhumatism by producing chronic
congestion and ultimately degeneration of
the liver, thus interfering with' its function
by which the food is elaborated and fitted
into the sustenance of the body."
Dr. S. H. Burgen: "All beer drinkers
have rhumatism, more or less, and no one
can recover from it as long as he drinks
beer. Notice how a beer drinker walks
about stiff on his heels, without any of the
elasticity and spring from the toes and balls
of the foot that a healthy man should have.
That is because the beer increases the li thia deposits about the smaller joints."
Dr. S. H. Burgen: " The first effect on the
liver is to congest and enlarge it. Then
follows a low grade inflammation and subsequent contraction of' the capsules, producing ' hob-nailed' or drunkard's liver,
the surface covered with little lumps that
look like nails on the'soles of shoes. This
developes dropsy. The congestion of the
liver clogs up all the springs'of the body, and
makes all sorts of exertion as difficult and
labored as it would be to run a clock, the
wheels of which were covered with dirt
and gum.
. The president of the Connicticut Mutual
Life Insurance Company—one of the oldest
in the country—has for years been investigating the relation of beer and longevity ;
or otherwise, whether beer drinkers are
desirable risks for a life insurance company.
He declared, as the result of a series of
observations carried on among a selected
group of persons'who were habitual drinkers of beer, that although for two or three
years there was nothing remarkable, yet
presently death began to strike, and then
the mortality became astounding and uniform in its manifestations.
There was no mistaking it; the history
was almost invariable; robust, apparent
health, full muscles, a fair outside, increasing weight; florid faces; then a touch of
cold or a sniff of malaria, and instantly some
acute disease, with almost invariable typhoid systoms, was in violent action, and ten
days or less ended it. It was as if the system had been kept fair on the outside,
while within it was eaten to a shell, and at
the first touch of disease there was. utter
collapse, of every fibre was poisoned and
And in its main .features, varying in degree, has been his observation in beer
drinking everywhere. It is peculiarly deceptive at first; it is thoroughly destructive
at last.—The Pioneer,
Must Some   Day Give Way
New Metal, Aluminum.
Within the last 200 years about 50
.metals have' been discovered. Most
of them, it is true, have been looked
upon by the world as curiosities, and
they have been relegated to the chemical museums and shown in tiny little
vials as samples of the wonderful
achievements of ? modern scientific
research. Occasionally they would be
referred to by some writer with a
vivid imagination, who would call to
mind their extreme rarity and their
fabulous value—but only as chemical
curiosities and never as substance
that would ever be of any possible
use to mankind. Then the little vials
would be put back on the shelves out
of sight, out of mind, until the public
wished again to hear the tales of gallium and germanium and radium, and
to estimate what it would cost to
make a pound of thesn rarities.
With the advent of tlio electric furnace and the use of temperatures
hitherto unheard of these little vials
have been taken down for another
purpose. Oxides of tho ram metals
have been introduced to the fearful
heat and reduced to the form of pure
metals, and these rare metals, now
rare no longer on account of tho
cheapness of reduction nnd abundance
of ore, are taking their proper place
"J the sphere of industrial activity.
The little dust-covered vials are looming up, and keen, hard-headed scientists are studying them with a view to
their possibilities and the best means
as to their utilization.
Take aluminum, for example. In
1888 p.luminum first appeared on the
market and sold for $5 a pound. It
was still a curiosity, and here and
there some one would get hold of an
ounce or two and muse over its extreme lightness, its beautiful color and
its acid and oxygen' resisting properties. But still a curiosity. Then
comes the electric furnace. Aluminum
drops from $5 a pound to 35 cents a
pound, and the world suddenly sits
up very straight and takes notice. A
metal more useful than gold or silver
possibly than iron, has joined the
greit procession of modern business
opportunities, and immediately the
business man frantically seeks the
man of science and talks about "possibilities." v
Aluminum has had a remarkable
growth, commercially; but the next
few decades will show its real value
and use. It is popularly supposed
that iron is the commonest of all
metals but analyses of the earth's
crust show that aluminum is the king
of all the m.;tals as far as quantity is
concerned. There is just a little more
than eight per cent, of aluminum in
the crust of the earth, or'almost twice
as much as there is of iron, and more
than 80 times as much aluminum as
there is copper.
Some time aluminum will'be made
for a few cents a pound, and it will
eventually displace7 iron in many
places where that metal is. now considered to be indispensable. It is
about one-third the weight of iron- is
about as strong in tensile strength as
cast iron and just as soon as the
proper alloy of aluminum can be
found it will be steel's strongest rival
At present metallurgists are handicapped by the fact that aluminum
can be made from only one ore,
bauxite, and this ore is to be found
m few places, and is rapidly being
exhausted There is no doubt, however, that in a short time we shall
know how to extract the aluminum
from ordinary clay, economically-
then every clay-bank, will be a-mine of
^ijgr-^de ore' every bit of slate will
yield its precious prisoner of pure
aluminum, which it has so jealously
guarded .for untold ages—and then
iron, with its rusting, its crystallization and its queer-eccentricities, as
shown when in the form of steel, will-
be displaced by its peerless " youne
rival, aluminum.
Carless About His Money.
Prof. Lombroso, the famous Italian
criminologist, was extremely willful
and, although he asked advice of his
family in everything, he always acted
contrary to it. When advised to put
on dress clothes, for instance, he donned a lounge suit. His indifference
to money was proverbial. When he
went out he usually put banknotes
in the same pocket with his handkerchief, and when he drew it out
the notes were frequently lost. Having on several occasions found himself without money through this habit,
the professor used to put banknotes
in all his pockets, so that if the contents of one were lost he—and his- pet
criminals—would have a reserve fund
to draw upon.     %
The Peach Legend.
Almost all fruits and flowers have
their legend. One about the peach
oomes from Japan and tells how a
poor, pious old couple were searching
for food by tlie roadside. The woman
found a peach, which she would not
eat of, though starving, till she could
share it with her husband. He cut it
exactly in half, when an infant leaped
forth. It was one of the gods, who
had, he said, accidentally fallen out
of the peach orchard of heaven while
playing. He told them to plant the
stone of the peach, and it brought
tbem happiness, friends and wealth. -
The Actor's Share.
A musical comedy or oomic opera of
the first class averages a cast of about
seventy-five people, while I suppose
about seventeen is the average number for a dramatic company. A prima
donna who is not a star gets from $100
to $350 a week, the principal comedian from $160 to $500 a week, the
tenor from $75 to $300 and the tates
about the same. The minor characters range from $40 to $100 a week,
while show girls get $25 and $30 and
chorus people from $15' to $25, tbe
average salary being about $18.

Supplying the Soil with
the Elements of
Mr. J. R. Anderson, in bulletin
issued by the government, goes
largely into the question of manure
and fertilizing the soil.
Barnyard manure, he says, is far
and away the best all-round fertilizer for any kind of soil. Not only
is it as near a perfect fertilizer as
can be obtained naturally, but the
fact that it is a means of placing
humus in the soil, which is being
constantly exhausted, alone places
it in the front rank of fertilizers,
am an advocate, he continues, o
placing it on the land fresh day by
day, provided the conditions are
such that the most valuable con
stituents of the manure will not be
leached out of the soil. If this is
impracticable, then the best plan is
to place the manure under cover,
spreading it so that it will not heat,
and allow calves or other stock to
run on it. By those means the rain
will not. leach it out, and by spreading over a larger surface it does
not heat and so deteriorate in
quality; moreover, such a shed
forms an excellent open-air space
for stock. Other authorities advise
well-rotted manure as being the
bast form in which to apply it
to the land for an apple orchard.
From all points, I have faith from
personal experience in the application of manure fresh from the
stable. In any case, whatever plan
is adopted, the greatest care should
be taken to prevent the manure
from leaching out and heating,
either being fatal to its highest usefulness.
Unleached wood ash is another
valuable fertilizer for fruit trees.
Unfortunately, however, in British
Columbia, the preportion of conifers is so much in excess of other
woods that good wood ash is not
obtainable in any quantity, coniferous woods making but very little
ash, and that of an inferior quality.
All wood ashes, are however, valuable, and should be carefully preserved from rain and applied in an
unleached state to the surface of
the surface of the ground near
fruit trees.
A word here of warning as to
the placing of fertilizers about trees.
1 have frequently noticed that manures are heaped about the trunks
of trees. A little consideration will
show the fallacy of this method.
Such a practice really does more
harm than good, inasmuch as it
affords shelter for vermin, field
mice, voles, gophers, etc., which
destroy the bark of the trees, but
the fertilizing elements contained
in the manure are wasted, as they
are leached out into the soil, and
never reach the feeding portion of
the roots. What is meant by the
feeding parts of the roots are the
small fibres which extend a long
way from the trunk. These fibres,
even in small two-year-old trees,
may extend two feet from the
trunk, and it can therefore be easily
imagined that in a five-year-old
tree the distance may be anywhere
from ten to twelve feet. It follows
therefore, that a clear space of
several feet should be allowed all
round the trunk of the tree.
Commercial or artificial fertilizers
so-called, are useful for replacing
the lost or wanting elements of
fertility in the soil, but it must be
understood that they do not supply
humus, without which the soil soon
becomes hard and lumpy. Therefore, in conjunction with artificial
fertilizers, it is important that something should be done to put humus
into the soil, and for this purpose
no better method can be advised
than the seeding down with common red clover, and turning it in
the second year. Clover not only
supplies the needed humus, but
has the effect of introducing nitrogen into the soil from the air, and
since nitrogenous forms of fertilizers are the most expensive, it is so
much saved to the orchardist. The
best plan is to buy commercial
fertilizers separately, that is, not as
a mixed fertilizer, as the farmer
can then apply them in the proportions he v/ishes. It is, of course,
difficult, perhaps impossible, to say
what constituents the soil is deficient in; but ordinarily a fertilizer
containing one and a half to two
per cent, of nitrogen, seven to nine
per cent, of available phosphoric
acid, and ten to twelve per cent, of
potash, will give excellent results
when applied to orchard land in
quantity ranging from 400 to 600
lbs. per acre, but if a crop of clover
has been turned in, the nitrogen
can be omitted.
Prof. Shutt, in a lecture at the
annual meeting of the Nova Scotia
Fruit Growers' Association, in Feb.
1899, thus describes the functions
of the three principal elements of
plant food, nitrogen, phosphoric
acid, and potash:
" Nitrogen is an essential for
plant life. Its function, more par-
ticulaily, is to promote leaf growth.
Leaves are very necessary to the
well-being of the tree, as they serve
purpose of both mouth and stomach. The fruit also contains a certain amount of nitrogen. It is
chiefly, however, for the development of the leaf, without which a
good crop of well-formed apples
is not obtainable. Trees, in common with all plants, take their
nitrogen from the soil in the form
of nitrates—compounds formed by
various influences and under certain conditions from the nitrogenous organic (vegetable) matter
in the soil. The process is known
as nitrification, and is brought
about by the agency of minute
organisms (always present in the
soil) when the soil is in good tilth,
warm and moist.
" Phosphoric acid is contained
in the mineral part—ash—of the
woody tissue in wood and leaves,
as well as in the fruits and seeds.
It is not only necessary for growth,
but seems to have a special value
in the maturing or ripening of both
wood and fruit.
" Potash: this, of all the mineral
constituents, is the most important
for fruit trees, both large and small.
The well-being of the tree largely
depends upon an abundant supply
of soil potash in an available condition. It forms by far the greater
part of the 'ash' of the wood and
leaves, and approximately one-half
of that of the fruit."
Lime is not a fertilizer in the
strict sense of the term, its functions
being chiefly in the liberating cf
plant food, which is already in the
soil but in unavailable forms, and
also in the improvement of the conditions of clay, and hard refractory
soils. The quantity and frequency
that - lime should be applied depends greatly upon the condition
of the land. As a general rule it
may be stcted that from half a ton
to one and a half tons per acre,
applied say every five or six years,
is sufficient.

Your Health!
There are so many things to
occupy our attention that we
frequently forget^about our
health. It would be a good
plan if we would all go to
our physician each spring
and fall and find out whether
repairs are needed.
We can all tell something
about it if we would stop to
think. Custom says that
blood purifiers are needed
in the spring. They cant
harm. They will certainly
do some good, and may do
much good.

route. It is understood that the sharpest
curves will not exceed eight degrees,
equivalent to a radius bf 416 feet. All the

The grower states that the specimen shown

interesting to knew that lemons can be

their plea being the increased cost of living. Ih view of a shortage of skilled labor
it ia likely the demands will be granted.

An English Offiolal Who Outwitted a Frenoh Admiral.
The Interesting a.ery That Is Told by
A Whit. Heut_ on the Foreshore of
the Arabian Const at tho Southern
Khtranee to th* Red 8aa.
On the foreshore of the Arabian
coast In the strait of Bub-ol-Mmideb,
at tbo southern -cutrauci* to tho Red
sott, stands a largo white houso concerning which the travelers to the far
east may hoar a curious story. In the
middle 0- the nineteenth century,
When M. do Losseps after many difficulties had successfully floated the
Sues Canal company, the governor of
the British port of Aden, about 100
miles distant, was surprised one morning by the visit of u French squadron
of very unusual size for that part of
the orient, which, having encountered
a terrific storm off Sokotra, had put
In for repairs.
In the mind of the governor curiosity
was at once.aroused as to the destination of so large a command, a curiosity
which increased as he found it impossible to extract any further information from the French admiral or his
officers beyond the statement that
they were upon an ordinary cruise, an
explanation which the former was not
the least inclined to believe.
Firm in the belief, therefore, that
some political move of great importance was afloat if not afoot, the governor, in order first of all to gain time,
gave orders to go very tortoise-like on
the repairs and then set to work to
take tho Frenchmen off their guard by
giving a succession' of such entertainments as both his slender means and
the awful barrenness of the place
would afford.
But, though at the end of two weeks
the French and British officers had got
upon the best of terms, the immediate
destination of the French squadron
remained as much of a mystery to
the governor of Aden as before, and
in spite of all possible delay the repairs were nearly completed.
Now, it happened that the wife of
the governor possessed an Irish maid,
who had been receiving attentions
from one of the French petty officers-
attentions which the girl did not regard seriously. It occurred to the governor that by such means something
might be learned of his unexpected
visitor's plans, and a private conversation between the governor's wife
and her maid resulted in another between the latter and her French admirer, by which it was discovered
that Perim island was the objective
point. -B ■    ;     ..
At this information the governor
opened his eyes wide indeed, for, if
the Suez canal were cut through, Perim, as commanding the southern entrance to the Red sea, In the middle
• of the strait of Bab-el-Mandeb, would
be a place of great strategic importance, over which, without doubt, it
was the intention of the French admiral to hoist the tricolor.
Secretly giving orders, therefore, for
a gunboat to immediately embark a
detachment of soldiers and steal away
In the night for Perim island, the governor then announced a farewell banquet and ball for the day but one following, a final, act of courtesy with
which the French admiral would willingly have dispensed, for he was anxious to sail, but which he could- not
well refuse on account of the use he
had made ,of the British supplies and
machinery at Aden.
So the dinner and party In due
course came off, the governor being in
high spirits, because in the meantime
he had received the news of the occupation' of Perim, which under the circumstances would surely be followed
by the longed for promotion, and the
French admiral was equally happy,
for he hoped on the morrow to adu
the same Important little speck of land
to the dominion of his own country,
thereby covering his breast with the
stars and himself wltb maritime glory.
Next day, after an interchange ot
cordial farewells, the French squadron
sailed away to an apparently unknown
destination, until, when clear of the
land, tbe course was laid full speed direct for Perim island.
Then what were the dismay and disappointment of the French admiral
and his officers when, on coming in
sight of their destination, they beheld
the British flag flying and a company
of soldiers drawn up to give them a
proper salute. It is said the French
admiral was so mortified at being thus
outwitted that he first flung his cocked hat overboard and then followed it
himself into the sea.
Be this as it may, as Perim was
clearly already occupied by the British, the only counter move which the
French could make was to take possession of a strip of the foreshore on
Ithe opposite Arabian coast, where
they, built the fortified white house in
question, but as the place was entirely
i at the mercy of the guns on Perim ls-
'land It was shortly abandoned, to remain to this day as a monument of a
French admiral's undoing.—Exchange

The   Celebration   on   That  Day   Surpasses   the   Christmas   Feotivltlss.

There are no preparations in the1
churches for Christmas eve, such aa
we are accustomed to in America, no
special decorations or entertainments
of any kind, except the "messe del
minuit," the iniunight mass, sung at
a few of the largest churches. After
mass comes the "reveille," or midnight hanquet, a long-established festive custom. For this the great restaurants and cafes are at their gayest,
open all night, and lilled with parties who prefer to banquet there than
at their homes. But it is also a great
custom to hold tlie "reveille" at home
with friends, and fc^st until 2 ot 3 in
the morning.
The French Christinas customs in
tlie family are becoming more and
more like oura in America, especially
since the introduction of the Chnstmas tree. But the gifts on the tree
are only from members of the fan_-
ily; those from friend to friend aia
always reserved for the New Year.
The Christmas "superstition" botti
differs from and resembles our own.
The children place their shoes before
tlie "cheminee" (there are always fireplaces in the French houses and
apartments), and believe that it ifl
the infant Christ who fills them with
gifts — or, in some cases, that the
"pere Noel," or Father Christmas,
who corresponds to our St. Nick; sent
by the holy child, bring them.
The first of the new year, however,
is full of activity, and of a sort vs©
wearying that most Parisians a<V
count it the most disagreeable day
in the year. Every one from the servants and concierge to the least individual in one's employ, expects a
money gift, and the amount whicfi
some families are obliged to dispense
in this . way is very large. Furthermore, every thing is at a fabulous
price that day. Only the very ricti
or yery foolish attempt to take a
cab, flowers cost their weight in diamonds, and restaurant prices are doable and treble, to say nothing of __•
enormous tips expected.
All gifts between friends are e__-
changed on New Year's, and many
calls made. This, too, comes hard pal
a man who is, for example, an em-'
ploye, for he is expected to pay big
respects to all his superiors in business position. If one has on his list
of acquaintances any old people he ia
duty-bound to make each one a call
also. For the majority, it is a day
dreaded in advance and ended witu
relief. The churches have no special
services for the New Year. The midnight watch service held in some ot
our Protestant churches has its counterpart in the one on Christmas eve.
But friends often watch the old year
out, and toast Uie New Year and each
other in champagne.

In the Hawaiian language every
word ends in a vowel. A Hawaiian
finds it almost impossible to pronounce two consonants together, and
in English he has the greatest difficulty in pronouncing any word end*
ing with a consonant. Mr. Hale ia
his Polynesian grammar says: "In all
the Polynesian dialects every syllabi*
must terminate in a vowel, and twa
consonants are never heard without
a vowel between them. It is chiefly
to this peculiarity that the softness
of these languages is to be attributed.
The longest syllables have only three.
letters, and many syllables consist ol
a single vowel." Again, no syllable,
as a general rule, in the Bantu family of African speech can end in a
consonant, but only in vowels.
The Appian Way.
The famous Appian way was constructed by digging two parallel
trenches, three feet in depth, at the
bottom of which were placed two layers of flat stones in mortar, upon
which a layer of cobblestones waa
placed, also laid in mortar. Thea
came a course of pebbles in concrete,
over which were placed large, flat
blocks of smooth lava well joined together, forming an even, uniform surface. It was primarily a military road
and extended from Rome to Bran-
dusium, a distance of 350 miles. So
perfect was the construction of this
celebrated road that it still exists in
places as good as ever, notwithstanding it was made more than twenty
centuries ago.

Mr. Robert Pollock has secured an interesting little machine, by which the sex
of eggs, plants, or trees can be determined.
More than that it will demonstrate whether
.here is life in the subject tested or not.
It works on either human beings, animals,
or plants, and is coming into use by poultry
fanciers. The instrument consists of •
celluloid bell on a metal frame, about the
size and shape of an ordinary tumbler,
inside the bell is a pendulum contrivance
consisting of a metal ball suspended by a
wire. The suspended wire is placed in
contact with the hand of the operator,
when the pendulum will swing in a circular motion if the object to be tested is
male, and straight backwards and forwards
if the subject be female. If there is no
life, the pendulum declines to move. Unfertile eggs can thus be rejected, and the
proportion of pullets obtained according to
the wish of the operator.
The instrument is being generally used
in the old country and poultry raisers are i
reaping excellent results. Mr, Pollock,
who has secured the agency for Canada,
has set a full setting of eggs tested for
pullets, and his friends are watching for
results with a considerable amount of in-
terest—Summerland 9£eWeu>.

The Orchard Gitoj Record.
Pic-nicing at one" of the many beauty spots
on the Okanagan Lake.
The  Orchard Gity
of British Columbia,
Is credited with more winnings in open competition 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 orj 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 of 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.

steadily forged to the front as one
of the most profitable industries in
and around Kelowna. Inexperien-
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 locally.
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

This is the time of the year
when the good housewife is busy
house-cleaning. They say it is
a necessity once a year anyway,
and even then, with the best of
care, things won't last for ever,
and have to be replaced.
Now how about the timepieces in the house ? They require looking into and examining some time. As a rule they
are the last things thought of.

You Will Never Have It as Long as
You Have Dyspepsia
Just as long as you have dyspepsia your
food will not properly digest, and the nutritious elements in the food will not be
extracted or absorbed, and impoverished
or watery blood will follow.
This condition may not be apparent at
first, but it will come as sure as the sun
will rise again. .
And stomach ailment, including all forms
of indigestion, can be promptly cured by
using Mi-o-na tablets, a scientific treatment
It stops fermentation, belching of gas and
taste of sour food almost at once.
The mighty power of Mi-o-na to invigorate and restore the stomach to perfect condition is known everywhere.
. Mi-o-na cures by building up—by banishing the cause. For thin people is a great
flesh builder, because it causes the stomach
to give more and purer nutrition to the
blood. It cures sea and cair sickness and
vomiting of pregnancy almost immediately.
P. B. Willits & Co. sells Mi-o-na for 60 cents

money back.
