A meeting of the City council

A deputation, consisting of Mr.
Buckland and Mr. Weddell waited
on the council on behalf of the
Hospital committee with reference
to expenses .incurred in respect to
Mrs. McGee.
Mr. Buckland said the last council
% promised to pay half the cost, and
he wquld 4ike to know what the
present council were going to do
""in the matter.
Aid* Leckie said he believed the
ca& had .already been brought^ up
before the council. He understood
that Aid. Stirling had promised to
pay half himself privately and that
the grant made to £die. Hos|5_t^
should cover the other naif. '
' Mr. Dunn looked up the minutes
of a previous meeting and found
that a resolution had been passed
to that effect. * -7  .
Aid. Cox said the council had
since., been at . some expense for
wood anddther supplies.'
Mr. Weddell detailed the history
of Mrs. McGee V case, and said
that if the Hospital committee had
not taken the matter up, the council
would\ have had to take the burden
upon themselves.
The mayor said; that in the absence of Aid. Stirling it was impossible to say anything then, and the
matter was eventually referred
back to the finance committee for
their re-consideration.
Mr. Middleton attended with a
petition signed by a number of
residents and owners of lots on
Ellis street and St. Paul st, asking
the council to have St. Paul st. extended to Bernard avenue. He
said.that he and others owned land
in that neighborhood for which
they were paying taxes, but could
make no use of it as there was at
present no way of getting to it.''
Mayor Sutherland asked if the
petitioners wished the City to bear
the whole cost of constructing the
Yes, at present, said Mi*. Middle-
ton, but the taxes would eventuiilly
Eay for it Many of them, he sfcitf,
ad bought lots oiit there,' expecting
to build and use them, and they
were very much disappointed that
no street had been made.
Mayor Sutherland pointed out
that the cost would be very great
It would take something like $1,500
tb buy the necessary land, which
would probably be nearly half the
total amount proposed to be spent
on the roads this year. It would
mean putting through a special bylaw in order to raise money for the
Mr. Middleton admitted that it
Would cost money, though he did
not think it would take so much as
$1,500 to buy the land for the
street He was of the opinion that
the owners or the lots would be
willing to sell sufficient at a reasonable figure in order to increase the
value of the rest They w|*e, he
said, paying taxes year after year
for their holdings, and naturally
wanted something in return. The
council would receive a good deal
more in taxes than they were doing
at present, owing to the increased'
assessment, and the owners would
be quite willing to pay it. The
street, too, would be a considerable
improvement to the town.
The mayor promised that the
matter should receive consideration
and a note was accordingly laid
on the table to be discussed in
Mayor Sutherland then brought
up the question of the Aquatic
Association. He said that last year
the City had made an agreement
with the association, that, when
they should have been properly
incorporated, and on the understanding that certain conditions
should be complied with, a lease
should be granted to them of a
portion of the foreshore in the city
park for the purposes of a pavilion,
etc. He now thought it was in
order'to have the lease prepared.
The mayor also asked what the
council proposed to do in reference
to the balance of $2,500 due to the
Canadian Fairbanks Co., for the
re-installation of the power house
plant after the fire.
A little discussion- here arose,
Aid. Leckie stating that the account
was in payment for the ; contract
which he considered had only just
been completed. Some of the apparatus had, in fact, only 'recently
arrived. Moreover, since the plant
had been reinstalled a break had
occurred .which had. cost the City
about $1000.; The- report of the
government inspector went toshow
ui&t the7cause;of the break was a
defectum the plant itself, arid for
this reason, he. thought, it was' up'
to the Canadian Fairbanks Co. to
bear the cost of the repairs
necessitated' . by the breakage,
especially considering the long
price they got for the reinstallation.
Does 'the inspector say, asked
Aid. Harvey, that we could prove
their liability in a court of law?
He did.not, of course, expres£
any legal opinion, said Aid. Leckie.
He had simply tried to find out the
cause of the accident.
Aid. Cox asked if  Mr.   Peck,
(the government  inspector),   had
explained why he did not send
his report.
Aid. Leckie-said that the
spector had been unable to get
certain necessary information from
the Fairbanks Co. He (the inspector) was not really concerned
with who was responsible for the
break-down, but what. He had
practically admitted that it was the
plant which was at fault
Aid. Cox declared that in his
hearing the inspector had exonerated the man in charge from all
blame, and if it was not the man,
then it must have been the plant
He had further stated that if certain changes in the plant were not
made the accident would accur
Aid. Harvey was of opinion that
the council, would be on the right
side in refusing to pay for the
Aid. Leckie thought they had
better write the Fairbanks Co. that
some liability attached to them on
account of the accident, and that
the council could not see their way
to settle until the matter Was
cleared up.
Aid. Cop remarked that the en
gineers differed very much in their
opinions,'one recommending one
thing, while another held quite a
different view. .. • •
Mayor Sutherland thought that
before going into further details it
would perhaps pay to get legal
advice. He pointed out that the
new engineer had found the plant
in bad shape when he took it over.
The piston rod was banging against
the end of the cylinder at each
stroke, end there were several other
details of faulty adjustment
Aid. Jones said that the matter
had been in discussion for a considerable time and he thought they
ought to get legal advice and have
the thing settled.
Aid. Leckie said that provision

In the vindows of the different
land and' development companies,
the signs of " Men Wanted " mean
much to Kelowna and its district
foi they mean the commencement
of a new era in the development
of the large land fertile country
surrounding our City.
Among the larger companies
which are operating extensively is
that formerly known as the Central
Okanagan Land & Orchard Co.,
Ltd;. It is noticeable that this
company has recently re-organized,
two separate companies being
formed, a land company, known
as the Central Okanagan Lands,
Limited, with $ 1,000.000 capital,
and a water company, known as
the Kelowna Irrigation Company,
Limited, with a capital of 000,000.
The newly formed companies
havei already got under way, and
an extensive work outlined for the
year. The Lands Company has
purchased about 3000 additional
acreage, which brings the total unsold holdings to about 7,500 acres.
This includes the noted' " Dry
Valley" district, which extends
from about: a half mile of the city
limits north east a distance of about
eight miles. These lands, considering their close proximity to the
City, the fertility of their soil, which
ia ideal for the culture of fruit, and
the beautiful surroundings ., arid
views in and from their neighbor;
hood, are considered some of the
choicest lands' in , the Okanagan
Valley. ;    A
• We. understand it is the policy of
the company to improve and plant
in orchard quite a large portion; of
its holdings, and to sub-cJiyide. and
\serf' the balance in small blocks.:./.. .
*'VTher 'irrigation - Company, has
commenced operations, and under
the supervision; of- a competant
engineering staff, it is pushing the
work of extending the water all
over the Land Company's holdings.
A steel pipe syphon line .30" and
32" in diameter, will be leid across
Mill Valley in order to transmit
the" water into Dry Valley and on
the other adjoining' lands. The
main irrigation canal and distributing system will be constructed
of concrete, so as.to insure against
seepage or damage to land by
water. Between forty and fifty
cars of cement have been ordered,
and rock crusher and concrete
mixer have already, .been shipped
for use in the construction of the
ditch and laterals. The whole system'will be substantial and durable
in every detail. Though this class
of work is quite common on the
American side, as far as is known,
the Kelowna Irrigation Company is
the first company in 'British Columbia which has adopted such a
permanent class of work.
It is expected that the Land and
Irrigation companies combined will
expend in cash during the present
year, between $300,000 and $400,-
000, and during the year following
an equal amount. A gang of about
forty men are now busy on the
works, and we understand the
company will have work for as
many more.  v
Now that the company is extending its water system on to the Dry
Valley lands, we understand it is
their intention to change the name
of the Valley to one more appropriate. " A cash prize of $ 100 is to
be offered to the person who hands
in the most appropriate name on
or before May 12th. Competitors
must visit the valley personally.
The decision and change of the
name will be made by the manage*
ment of the Land Company."
All this expenditure surely must
mean- a great faith in the future of
Kelowna's district. The growth
and development of the City and
country has been rapid during the
past few years, but we feel safe in
saying that with all'the new development work going on, and
with the increased acreage being
brought under water and put on
the market, the growth of our city
and district has but commenced,
and during the next few years
greater strides will be made than
that at any time in the past

Saturday. A number of men were
drafted from the government road

very hard to get this spring, owing
to the large amount of work going
on in the district, and the Rutland

Westbank Notes
From our own correspondent
It has been so warm of late, -that
the roads are getting very dusty, so
the general wish is for rain or a
road sprinkler.
One of the first .automobiles to
visit this district came last Thursday,
and as usual, the poor "horses were
subject to many a scare.
It is understood that Mr. J. Strang
has disposed of his twenty-acre lot
at the townsight, for the handsome
•um.of $9000.
Mr. E. Dickerson, of Rutland,
who is teaming on the Bear Creek
road, had a " spill" one day last
week, but luckily nothing was hurt,
although both team and wagon
turned " topsy turvy."
Mr. James Vale of G. McCurdy's
road camp, was taken seriously ill
last Saturday morning, and had to
take the evening ferry for Kelowna
to secure medical aid.
Work on the new mill is progressing favorably, and we hope it
will not be long before we will
hear' once more the old time
whistle, as something seems a miss
since we hear it no more.

[ The determination of the government to establish a University
for British Columbia has caused
considerable interest in all parts
of the province. Into the great
advantages to this extreme western
part of the Dominion of a university it is not necessary to enter.
That matter is settled. We are to
have the University—but where?
In what particular part of this favored province shall the government
erect their supreme educational
institution ? That is the question
which is exercising the minds of. a
great many people at the present
As to what constitutes an ideal
location is a matter of great dever-
sity of opinion and the commissioners have no easy task before them
of making the selection.
It is not necessary, indeed scarcely advisable, that the university
should be near any great manufacturing centre. What is of more
consequence is that it should be
placed where the climate is healthy
and bracing, so that study may be
pursued under the most favorable
conditions; where the weather is
•fine the greater part of the year, so
that out-door sports so dear and
beneficial to-iiyery student may be
pursued the year round with as
little interference as possible,;
beautiful .and 7 inspiring
scenery; and reasonable accessibility from all. parts of the province.
One of";pur; Kelowna citizens,
Mr. Rembler Paul, has generously
a site "which"he believes to combine
all the? foregoing advantages, and
many more; besides;
The site which Mr. Paul offers i_
directly adjoining this city of Kelowna on the north, and cbnsists of
125- acres of valuable lend on the
shore of the Okanagan lake. Its
situation is undoubtedly a magnificent one for the purpose, overlooking the city and commanding
a fine view up and down the lake.
It has half a' mile of lake frontage,
where, wharves, boathouses, etc.
could be constructed with the greatest ease. ■ It has right on the spot
all the marble and building stone •
necessary for the edifice, besides
coal, iron, copper and other minerals. It has has the aspect of a natural
park, consisting of hill and valley,
with fine timber and over 60 acres
of open country suitable for any
agricultural purpose.
Two roads already connect the
property with the city, and the
government have a third marked
out for .construction in the near
future. Kelowna, itself, which is
undoubted destined to become the
central city of the Okanagan, besides having an excellent boat service, will shortly be connected by
an electric road with the main line
of the C. P. R.
No need to speak of the climate
of Kelowna to anyone who has
stayed here the year round. Ask
the oldest inhabitant how many
days he remembers of real bad
weather. The chances are he
could could count them on his
hands and without using the same
figures twice, too.
Mr. Rembler Paul is a man who
has seen much of the world we
live in, and has searched from
north to south for a pleasant place
in which to spend his declining
years. Last year he visited California, which is generally referred
to as a heaven blessed land, but
he came back more than ever convinced that Los Angeles was not
in it with Kelowna. They have
not the bracing atmosphere which
keeps a man in health and blood
coursing bright in his veins. Two
Regina gentlemen, who recently
stayed here on their way from
California emphatically voice the
same opinion.
This land Mr. Paul offers to
government   free    from   all
cumbrance    and     without
restrictions whatever.
_ It is expected that .the commission which is to select the location'
(not   the   actual   site)    for    die
new university, will reach the province to enter upon their important
duties some time in early June.
On their arrival in British Columbia
the   commissioners  will  organize
and prepare a working plan, select
their  secretary,  and   proceed to
business.  It is probable that sittings
will be held in Victoria, Vancouver,
Nanaimo, New Westminster, Nelson, Kamloops, Vemon, and  certain other centres.   The decision,
of the commissioners will in  all
probability be handed to the govr.
eminent in ample time for it to be
presented to   parliament at next
assembly.     The following, are the
commissioners    appointed:     Dr.
Weldon,    Dalhousie     University,
Nova Scotia;. Canon Duthie, Laval;
University, Quebec; Dr. O. E. Skel-

The action of the city council in granting $100 to the Vol-,
unteer Fire Brigade will no
doubt be heartily endorsed by
everyone in the city. The brigade boys as Aid. Jones remarked at the council meeting
are now an efficient body, and
capable of splendid work in
protecting the citizens from loss
by fire. Their services are
purely voluntary aid without
renumeration from any quarter.
Nothing but the most genuine
enthusiasm could induce a
young man to turn out from
his,bed in the middle of the
night or leave his work during
the daytime to undertake the
strenuous and often dangerous
duty of fire fighting. And
those who have comfortably
stood by watching the spectacle
of a fire and carefully dodging
the least drop of water which
might stray in their direction,
will appriciate the fact that the
boys often suffer loss from
spoilt clothing, not to mention
blistered faces and hands. . After their smart Work on one or
two recent occasions their
claims to support and encouragement need scarcely ■ be

had been made for payment, and
the money had been raised, but
the matter hung fire because no
satisfactory report could be got
from the boiler inspector.
Aid. Jones thought that if they
were to enter into litigation over
the matter the late engineer would
swear that the plant was properly
installed, and would probably put
down the accident to some other
Aid. Leckie said the boiler inspector had distinctly stated that
the cause of the smash was water
in the cylinder, and that the water
got in there because the plant was
Pvlayor Sutherland was of the
opinion that the council would
have to pay. He did not think
they would be able to make out
any case of negligence. It was
simply a difference of opinion with
regard to the plan of the instal-
ation. The Canadian Fairbanks
Co. were installing plants all over
the country under the supervision
of an experienced man, who
thoroughly understood the business.
Aid. Leckie 3aid that when the
price paid was so high, they need
have no .scruples about making
them come up to the scratch.
The question was then dropped
with the intention of referring it to
the city solicitor.
Aid. Jones recalled the fact that
a suggestion had been made at a
previous meeting that a grant
should be made to the fire brigade
in recognition of their services.
He had not b.een able to refer it to
the finance committee, but as it
was a matter which should not be
left over, he would like to have it
dealt with at the present meeting-
He spoke in high praise of the
fire brigade. We had a body of
eighteen'yoiing men, he said, to
aid in protecting the city from fire,
and the.way.in which they worked
was worthy of some; recognition.
They v/eife without any remuneration from the citizens, and in case
of fire had to leave their business,
and frequently suffered loss from
spoilt clothing, etc. He thought if
the council were to give something
it would be a stimulus to them in
their work.
Ihe other members of the council were unanimous in their agreement with this proposal, and accordingly, on the motion of Aid.
Jones, seconded by Aid. Leckie,
the following motion was passed :
" That the city council in appreciation of the excellent services rendered by the fire brigade at the
recent fires, authorize the city clerk
to forward their secretary a cheque
for one hundred dollars.
Aid. Jones then introduced the
question of the city park. He said
that considerable money had been
spent last year in flower beds and
other improvements, and he
thought the council ought to see
that a competent man was appointed to look after the park and keep
it in proper shape. Trees had
been planted which would have to
be attended to, and the flower
beds would have to be watered
and new flowers planted in their
proper seasons. There was quit"
a lot of rubbish, too, which needed
clearing away. A man would be
necessary for about four months,
say from May to August, and the
cost would be about $250 to $300.
They ought to consider whether
it was worth while to go to this
expense or not. Quite a number
of tourists were coming in from
Vancouver and other places, and
the city park was one of the things
they took pleasure in. If we wished
to have these tourists coming in,
the city must see to it that the park
and the streets were kept in good
order and made more attractive.
Aid. Cox said he fully agreed
with Aid. Jones. They must have
a man to look after the park, or the
improvements which had been
made would be spoiled.
It was also suggested that the
same man could look after the
grass and weeds on the streets, the
care of the trees, etc. The proposal
seemed to meet with general approval, and the matter was eventually referred to the park committee
for consideration.
Aid. Harvey mentioned that the
flume on Glenn avenue was being
repaired ready for' the water to be
turned on. Mr. Raymer had objected to the water being sent down
in that way again, as the leakage
would undermine the foundations
of the new school building.
Mayor Sutherland pointed out
that the city had nothing to do
with the irrigation water. They
had removed the flume and must,
of course, have it replaced, but so
far as the water was concerned, the
city had nothing to do with either
turning it on or off.
Aid. Leckie thought that as the
school was city property, the city
should see to it that no damage
was done to it from that cause.
In such a case, said the mayor,
the city would have to take action.
A motion was then put through
that By-law No. 73 be read a first
time. The by-law , imposes a
special rate 3 cents per foot frontage for watering portions of Bernard
avenue, Water street, Pendozi st.
and Abbott street, constituting the
business part of the city. The rate
to be paid by the occupiers of the
premises. i
Aid. Leckie asked if there was
any regulation governing the speed
of automobiles within the city
limits. A man had told him that
he nad seen automobiles going
through the city at 60 miles an
hour. His informant was very
emphatic about the speed, and had
said that there was great danger of
children being run over and killed.
Aid. Cox said that the last council
had asked Hidson to speak to all
the owners of cars, and the result
had been a great improvement for
a time.
Mr. G. C. R.ose, who was present,
said that he had a request to make
of the oouncil. The city, he said,
last year went to considerable expense in purchasing and fixing up
a ground for the use of the various
athletic associations in town. There
was one body, which was not
in a position to ask for the use of
the grounds, and therefore does not
derive any benefit from them. He
referred to the Rifle As's6ciation,
which had lost their range, owing
to the owner refusing to give them
permission to shoot on it. . Owing
to the kindness of Aid, Harvey and
Jones, (hey had a new range in
sight, but they had all their work
to do over, and would have to go
to all the expense of fixing'it up
for shooting again. He would like
to ask the council for a grant of
say, $25 towards these expenses.
The Rifle Association was a deserving institution, and in the time
of need would .'have to shoulder
arms and fight for their country.
They were now faced with considerable expehVe, and asked the
council to help.
The meeting then' adjourned
until Saturday next, April 30th.
Good Appearance Waits Upon the Way,
Garments Are Worn.
"You can talk all you please about
clothes making a man," said a Walnut,
street tailor, "but I want to say right!
now that the smartest clothes in the'
-worid can't make a man "natty' if he
is not naturally so. There is an old,
stoop shouldered doctor uptown that
I have been tailoring for seven years.
He buys four and sometimes five suits
a year, and yet, except for a few days,
after he has broken In each new suit*
he never looks pice. The trousers bag
at the knees, the coat falls away in
front, and the shoulders begin to look
sloppy. The man's drooping flgura
and the poor care he takes of his
clothes furnish, of course, the explanation, gj
"Did you ever notice the average
college man's clothes? Almost Invariably he looks neat and correct
despite the easy swing with which he
walks. But you'll notice that he carries his head high, his shoulders fairly
erect, and his trousers never 'break'
at the shoes, so that the crease is always preserved. All classes of me_>
go to college—rich and poor. Few college men take more than fair care ol
their clothes. It's all the way they
wear their clothes, I think. Notice tha
young lawyers aud doctors around'
town too. Few of them can afford the
very best In tailor made clothes. ■ That
they usually look nice Is due to the
fact that they have picked up the distinguished way to wear clothes, T
might call It. Clothes make the man,
but only when the man is willing to
help."—Philadelphia Record.
It Was Vouched For by the Gentleman
Who Related It.
Some years ago in a certain town ia
the north a gentleman possessed of
more money than education was asked
to address the scholars attending one
. of the local schools some Sunday afternoon.
"Well, childwen," said he, *Ts not
used to public speyking, but 1 remember when I was a lad I was very fond
of hearing a story.. Shall I tell ye a
story? .'
"Once upon a time many years ago
there was a lad, a very good lad, who
went regularly to Sunday school and
nivver missed. But one Sunday afternoon as he was gawin' to school two
bad boys met him and persuaded him
to gan bird nesting wiv 'em. So they
went alang by the riverside, and by
and by they came to a tree", and in
the tree on a brauch which overhung
the watter was a nest The two bad
lads sent the good lad to climb the
tree and fetch the eggs. Up he went
and got on the branch, farther and farther, and just as he was reaching out
his hand to tak' the nest, the branch
brok', and he fell into the river and
was drooned."
After waiting a few moments to allow his hearers to thoroughly grasp
the full extent of the catastrophe he
resumed with:
"Children, the story is true, for the
lad that was drooned was me."—London Tit-Bits.
™ The Act of Dying.
The common phrase "death agony" Is
not warranted by what occurs in natural death, which is a complete relief
from all pain. When death is owing to
heart failure or syncope it is sudden
and painless, perhaps pleasant. Death
by hanging, there is reason to believe,
is attended by a voluptuous spasm.
Death by decapitation or electricity is
only a momentary shock, hardly felt
Death by poisoning varies in painful-
iiess according to the poison employed.
Opium ,and other narcotics probably
give a painless, perhaps a pleasant,
dreamful death. Hemlock, as we
know from the account of the death
of Socrates, causes gradual insensibility from below upward. On the other
hand, arsenic, strychnine, carbolic and
mineral acids, corrosive sublimate, tartar emetic1 and other metallic poisons
inflict slow and torturing death. Prus-
sic acid and cyanide of potassium
cause quick death.—Exchange.
Glasses to Fit Four Eyes.
For several months a man had been
going to various oculists, getting a pair
of glasses, trying them for a few days
nnd then taking tbem back. Two
weeks ago one of his friends suggested an optician tbat be thought could
do the' trick and persuaded the troubled
man to give him a trial. The result
was-the same as before, however, and
the glasses were returned. Curious
about the nature of the difficulty, the
friend went to the optician and asked
him what was the matter. "Why,"
replied' the latter; "that fellow wants
a pair of glasses that will suit both
himself and his' wife."-PhiIadelphia

VERNON.     •
The assessors, who have lately
been busy in Vernon", have run
against a difficulty. They are unable to locate the eastern boundary
of the city. The survey posts have
either rotted or been removed, and
several holders of land within the
doubtful area are objecting to be
taxed, as they claim to be outside
the city limits.
The Vernon board of works, in
presenting their report and estimates for 1910, are very urgent in
their request for a steam roller.
"The present method employed
in road - making," they say, ' is
grading and gravelling, which
latter, owing to its being loosely
spread about, becomes pushed
away from where it is wanted by
every wheel that passes along and
and therefore is a source of continual expense each year to be
, replaced. On the other hand, were
it rolled in by a heavy roller in the
first instance, although not what we
would call a permanent and properly made road, it certainly would
be of a more permanent nature
and would not require any more
attention to speak of for at least
two or three years and the money,
which would otherwise be eaten
up in maintenance, could be used
elsewhere for good permanent
work which would last for years.

A poultry association has been
organized in Summerland. Mr. G.
Parker was appointed president,
and Mr. W. M. Wright, secretary.
^ They are starting out with the idea
of making the principal object of
the association the attending to
the commercial side of poultry
keeping. The claims of fanciers
are to be only a secondary consideration. In order to see if there
are enough eggs marketed so that
it would pay the Association to
appoint an agent to locate and ship
the eggs in Summerland, it was
decided that the secretary should
try to get a sort of census of the
poultry in the Municipality. For
this purpose poultry keepers are
being asked to furnish answers to
the following questions: How
many eggs would you have to sell
weekly if a good market was provided? How many chicks will
you likely have for market this
fall? What breeds have you?
How many of each breed ? How
many laying hens do you intend to
keep this winter? When will your
earliest chicks be ready to matket?
A cold storage plant, including
packing house, also a wharf and
slips will be under construction in
Summerland in the course of a
couple of weeks, according to Mr.
T. Kilpatrick, Superintendent of
this division of the C. P. R., calling
for an expenditure of $38,000.
The contract for the cold Storage
plant has been let to a coast firm,
and it will be built on the west
side of the road, below the Anderson house. The wharves and slips
will be located in the vicinity of
the old hay wharf.

signifies a few words must be placed
here 'deflninx heal Itself.    <$
Heat Is caused 'simply by the thousands of. little molecules m any body
or thing vibrating very fust and thus
sending out waves into tbe ether.
When these waves strike any matter
they cause that matter to become hot,
as we say. Now, • the faster these
molecules vibrate the more heat Is
given out and the hotter Is tbe body
Itself. The slower the molecules the
colder the body. So, If a condition
could be reached where the molecules
did not vibrate at all. why. there could
be no heat, and therefore tbe body
would be absolutely cold. This condition of nEfalrs Is reached at the
above mentioned number of degrees
below our ordinary scales. It Is needless to say. however, that this absolute zero of heat has never been attained on this earth, the closest ever
reached by man being one degree
above It. This is 272 below zero centigrade and is tbe freezing point of
helium gas, which u German professor
claims to have frozen at that temperature.
From this theory of beat a peculiar
view is obtained of our bodies and
articles of matter. We would Bud, If
we bad a microscope to see small
enough, that every bit of matter at
any temperature that we can now get
Is a seething mass of moving molecules and vibrating particles. One
proof of tbis Is wben a metui expands
on becoming warmer. If we weigh it
we and that a hot body weighs no
more than the same body cold, yet It
gets larger, both longer and broader.
To do this it must be composed of
moving particles that on becoming excited get farther apart. Another proof
Is that liquids and gases have been
forced through every solid that exists
almost Thus water has been forced
through lead, sulphur dioxide through
iron.'etc. Tbe computed size of these
molecules is rather Interesting. It is
claimed that If a drop of water represented tbe earth tbe uumber of molecules iu the drop would be about equal
to the number of grains of sand in
the earth.—Exchange.

In Spain it is much tbe same: "Women, wind and fortune soon change,
and she can laugh and cry both in a

was of opinion that "what a woman
says to ber ardent lover ought to be

Electricity as an Aid to
Plant Growth
In apite of the obstinate conservatism of
the average farmer, science has done great
things for agriculture, and it will do much
in the time to come.
A   year   or   two   ago the London Press
described what was being done under the
direction   of   Sir   Oliver   Lodge   to utiliz
electricity   for   reinforcing   the fertility  of
Since that time valuable results have
accrued from the further study of the
problem. Weighed as a business proposition, Sir Oliver Lodge'3 system has justi
fled itself, and what was tentative and ex
perimental is now being taken up on
commercial lines as a valuable auxilliary to
Mr. Lionel Lodge, who has control qf
this department of Sir Oliver Lodge's work,
has explained the developments of the
past year or two, and the hope they afford
of further progress.
" Have you ever noticed what a remark-
able impulse is given to the growth of
crops by a thunderstorm ?" asked Mr.
Lionel Lodge. " That is the effect of the
strongly charged atmosphere, and our
object is to supply a similar stimulus
systematically. The artificial reinforcement
of the electricity in the air is more necessary in the dull, cold weather than when
the sky is cloar and bright.
The electric current can be generated
either by a small dynamo or from the nearest supply company mains, and by means
of a transformer it is raised to the high
pressure required (about 100,000 volts.)
The current from the transformer is more
or less alternating; that is, it is not a steady
current in one direction, but oscillating]
first in one direction and then in the oppos
ita. For convenience we call the current
in one direction positive and io the other
negitive. It is the positive current that we
discharge through the network of wires
above the plants.
" This field network consists of fine iron
wire, the wires being spread about ten
yards apart and eighteen feet or so above
the ground. The wires are so fine that it
is difficult to see them even when standing
immediately below them.
"The action that the electrical discharge
has on the plant, Sir Oliver suggests, may
be considered as artificial sunshine and as
in no way taking the place of manures.
The richer the soil the larger the increase
may be expected. With most plants on
average soil, the electrified area may be
expected to yield 30 per cent, more than
the non-electrified. If a higher increase
than this is obtained we consider the results
good and if lower poor. On rich soil much
better percentages have been obtained. The
power required is quite small, and many
of the installations at present working are
in unskilled hands."

How to Plant a Tree
Just a few simple directions for planting
if carefully followed are sufficient :
(1) Dig a hole large enough and deep
enough to accommodate the roots without
cramping. Allow so that the tree will sit
one inch lower than it did before.
(2) Place the top soil on one side of the
hole; on the other the poorer subsoil. If
the top soil is very poor, get some good,
rich, black soil.
(3) Place good soil in the bottom of the

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 can't
harm. They will certainly
do some good, and may do
much good.

Heacy Damage to Fruit Growers.
The cold snap in Iowa has already caused loss to fruit and vegitable growers, estimated at more than $5,000,000. Cherries
and plums have suffered severely. Garden truck can be re-planted, thereby minimizing this loss.
Died on Duty.
Provincial Constable A. W. Lane, one of
oldest and most reliable members of the
British Columbia force, dropped dead*from
heart failure on C. P. R. train No. 307 at
Mission last week. Reliable and trustworthy to the last, Lane, even with the
weakness of death creeping over him, held
to a struggling, drink-maddened prisoner
with whom he had been tussling for over
ten minutes, relinquishing his hold only
when life was practically extinct. George
Kenty, the dead man's prisoner, who had
been working in a B. C. Electric railway
construction camp in Abbotsford, boarded
the train in a drunken and disorderly condition and with another man, William
Duffery, was responsible for considerable
disturbance on the car. It was .while attempting to reduce the two quarrelling men
to order that Constable Lane overtaxed his
weak heart and death resulted.

To Prohibit Long Skits.
An ordinance to prohibit the wearing of
long dresses on the streets of Boulder, Col.,
was introduced in the city council last night.
It provides that "'It shall be unlawful for
any person whose wearing apparal or skirt
shall be of such length as to trail on the
ground and become a dust-sweeper or
otherwise obnoxious to the public health
and refined taste to appear upon any
sidewalk in this city." The document is
entitled "An ordinance to promote public
health and concerning displays upon the
sidewalk/' which was interpreted by one
of the alderman to mean that " If the council intend to define the length of skirts one
way it must also define it the other way."
The ordinance was urged by the Women's
C. P. R. Telegraph Office Seized
7 for Debt.
Tlie Commercial Telegraph office of the
C P. R. at Regina was seized last week by
the sheriff for arrears of taxes, and a bailiff
put in charge. This action is the result of
the difficult}' experienced by the city in
enforcing payment by the compafiy of the
floor space and business tax, which accor-
to legal advice tendered to the city, the
company is liable to pay on its uptown
commercial telegraph office. The total sum
claimed by the city is $433.30, being three
years' arrears of taxes. The company
claim exemption under its general exemption clause, and the case will, in all probability be finally fought out in the courts.
Similar proceedings will also be taken
against tne Dominion Express Co., which
like the C P. R. has refused to contribute
to the city's exchequer.

The latest use to which the automobile

It is in use in England. The back of the

Sir Wilfrid Laurier to Mahe Tour
of the West.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier promised a deputa-
of Liberal members from Western Canada
that he would spend two months on a
political tour of the west during the coming summer. Since 18% the premier has
not visited the western half of the Dominion owing to the exigencies of constant
demands on his time at the capital, coupled
with three imperial conferences and other
public missions during parliamentary
recesses. Sir Wilfrid will probably take
with him during his tour two of his colleagues, the Hon. Messrs. Graham and
Fielding, and public meetings will be held
at all the principal points in the west. The
date has not yet been definitely fixed, but
the tour will probably take place during
July and August.
Moosejato to Haoe Street Cars.
By an overwhelming majority of 381 in
a total vote of 429 the ratepayers of Moose
Jaw authorized the city council to grant a
street railway franchise to a syndicate of
Ottawa capitalists. Although less than
one-third of the property owners were
represented at the polls, the," vote, is by
far the largest ever recorded on any bylaw and the result of the polling is regard'
ed as highly satisfactory by the citizens
Letter Telegrams.
For the convenience of business men
and also no doubt for the purpose of
making the telegraph lines pay better by
using by night as well as by day, the new
system of letter-telegrams has been begun
and has immediately taken its place as a
benefit. This new movement means that a
telegram of 50 words may be sent at night
for the same price as 10 words now go.
The chief business of this kind has so for
been between the large American cities of
New York, Boston, Chicago, St. Louis and
New Orleans. .When the message arrives
at night it is at once sent to the - nearest
post office and the receiver has his telegram on the opening of the post office in
the morning.
The Weapon That Tried Several Times
to Kill Kipling.
My inlnd has flown back down th»
years to London and Into the large
corner room on the second floor, Villiers street, Embankment Gardens. On
the wall fronting the Thames hangs
the most vicious looking knife I have
ever seen. It Is serpentine In shape,
and its downward point is as sharp as
a needle.
"What a villainous weapon!" I said.
"Yes," replied Kipling, and I forgot
the name he gave It or the section of
India from which it came. "That
knife has tried to kl.'.l me several
times. It's always on the watch.
When 1 got It there was affixed to It,
like u button on a foil, one joint of a
man's backbone. The knife had been
run Into the vertebrae, given a savage
twist nnd brought away with It a piece
of human framework."
As he spoke he approached the glittering, snnkelike knife.
"Don't touch it!" I cried. "You
ought to keep it in a locked box."
He didn't touch it, so far as I saw,
but ns he raised his hand the knife
dropped like a plummet and stood
quivering In the floor within an inch
of his boot.
"Look at that!" he said and stood
there without moving a muscle until I
saw how nenrly the sinister blade had
come to impaling his foot. — Robert

Thirreen Reasons for Total
1. Intoxicating beverages are unnecessary.
Many persons live in health and labor in
the hardest occupations'without them.
■ 2. These liquors are dear. They are in
themselves, and in comparispn with other
articles of diet. Ardent spirits are destitute of
nutritive qualities ; while wine, beer, and
cid.-r contain an exceedingly small portion
of nourishment. In a gallon of ale there
thei'e is about as much as a pennyworth of
3. Intoxicating liquors weaken the mind.
They are enemies put into the mouth that
steal away the brains.
4. They always endanger the character
and often ruin it. They inflame the imagination, appetites and passion. Through
their influence multitudes been have plunged into guilt and eterrfal destruction : and
even some wise and good men have, for a
season, been covered with shame and defilement.    Witness Noah and Lot.
5. It enlarges and multiplies our jails,
poorliG'-ses, hospitals and lunatic asylums.
This is certified by our judges, magistrates,
physicians, chaplains of prisons, and other
competent and' reliable authorities. It
means a great extension of crime and misery, as well as a large augmentation of
6. The general practice of temperance
would help to fill our schools and places
of worship. Sobriety is likely to lead to
Inoughtfulness; and in that, in connection
with better clothes and more comfortable
hor.)e3, will result, by the Divine blessing,
in the attendance at the house of God of
many who were formerly absentees.
7. Personal abstinence gives us more influence over drunkards. They are far
more likely to sign the pledge and keep it
when advised by tnose who, distinguished
by sobriety and religion, have also set example of nephalism, or avoidance strong of
8. I tends to fill the treasury of the
Christian Church and to raise its spiritual
character.    In nearly all sections of it, funds
: are constantly being wanted to carry on the
moral machinery. Backslidings and expulsions, too, are continually occurring
throughout Christendom, owing to strong
9. As a pioneer, temperance hastens the
conversion of the world. Means sufficient
for universal evangelization would be
provided, the minds and hearts of Christians improved, the number of earnest
workers multiplied, and in other ways the
grand consommation would be accelerated.
10. It would vastly aid in multiplying the
inhabitants of heaven. Inthe case of many,
it has been and will be a stepping stone to
Christ and eternal life.
11. It increases the joy of angels. The
repentance of a sinner always swells their
gladness, and the abandonment of strong
drink is often first stage of a prodigious
12. It undermines the throne of Satan.
When delivered from the demon of intemperance, many escape altogether from the
thraldom of the great slave-master.

and happiness.

this American Hou. A nattre WM t±u_
author of "Tbo NaturnlUt In La
Plata" tbat on one occasion wblle
driving hia bones borne through a
thicket a puma sprang out of tbe
bushes to tbe back nf a colt following
behind the troop.    ^
The puma alighted, directly on tbo
coifs back, with one fore foot grasping
its shoulder, while with the other it
seized tbe bead and, giving It a violent
wrench, dislocated the neck. Tbe-colt
fell to the earth as If shot.
Next to horseflesh, the puma prefers
mutton. He does not like veal, although be will kill a calf upon occasion. A cunning puma which on cloudy
nights raided a sheep ranch used as a
place of concealment the pen where a
dozen calves were kept wblle it was
waiting to attack the sheep, but it did
not injure a calf.
Pigs when In large herds defy the
puma by massing themselves together
and presenting a serried line of tusks.
The ass also resists successfully the
puma's attack. When assaulted it
thrusts its head between its fore legs
and kicks violently until the puma is
driven or thrown off.
One day an Indian while riding saw
a young cow watching his approach.
Her manner showed that it was in a
state of dangerous excitement, and the
Indian conjectured that some beast of
prey had killed its calf. He began
searching for the calf's body. While
thus engaged the cow repeatedly
charged him. Presently he discovered
the calf lying dead among tbe long
grass and by its side a dead puma with
a large wound just behind the shoulder.
The calf had been billed by the
puma, for its throat showed the
wounds of large teeth. The cow had
driven one of its long, sharp horns Into
the puma's side whilgjt was sucking
the calf's blood.

The 91st- Anniversary of the
order of Oddfellows was celebrated
in Kelowna by a special service at
the Knox Presbyterian church.
The members arid visitors from
other points, numbering in $11
about 70, assembled in the Lodge
room in Raymers' hall at 10.30,
and from, there marched to the
church in procession. The "Maud
Moore" made a special trip in the
early morning from Summerland,
bringing members from that point.
One side of the church was reserved for the party, and the congregation was a large one, extra
chairs having to be placed in the
aisles. A special service had been
arranged, and the music included
a finely rendered male quartette
by Messrs. Davies, McKenzie, Mcv
Farlane and Hill, a solo by Mr. T.
Hill, and also an anthem by
the choir. The preacher was the
Rev. J.a8. Hood, of Summerland,
he being ^assisted by the Rev. M.
Pike, of Rutland. The church
was very tastefully decorated with
flowers* and presented an attractive
appearance. From the offertory
the Hospital will benefit to the extent of about $30. After the service the members returned to dine
at the Lakeview Hotel, the visiting

We hear that a good many
people in town are setting their
alarm clocks to rouse them from
their slumbers at the unusual hour
of half-past three in the morning.
The object of this is to catch a
glimpse of Halley's comet, which is
said to be visible (personally we
cannot say whether it is1 or not)
just as the sun rises.
The Juvenile Bostonians are
billed to appear at the Opera
House on Tuesday, May 10th.
They are coming to Kelowna under,
the auspices of the city band.
These young musicians form a
decidedly novel feature, and should
prove a strong draw.
The past few days of exceptionally fine weather have given to certain orchards and gardens around
town an almost fairy-like appearance. The rich profusion of blossoms of various shades call forth
exclamations of admiration even
from those who have'been here '*
for years, and are in a measure
accustomed to the sight, though'in
the opinion of everyone, never was
the blossom so plentiful nor the
promise of abundant fruit so great.

Archie Knight went with him to

^number of friends of the family
dropped in to say goodbye.
Diarrhoea should be cured without lots
of time and by a ftiedicine which like
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea

produces no unpleasant after effects. It
never fails and is piquant andkafe to take.

Juvenile Bostonians
Calgary, Alberta, " Albertan " says of the
Juyenile Bostonians who appear at the
Opera House, May I Oth.
The Juvenile Bostonians have always
been great favorites with Calgary audiences,
and their return engagement, which commenced recently at the Lyric threatre was
no exception to. the rule.
In presenting "Berta's Billion" music
lovers of light opera who were furtunate
enough to be present, enjoyed a treat.
The Bostaniana are this season composed
of twenty-two clever little girls between
.the ages of 12 and 18 years. She has a
style of their own in rendering comic tongs,
which is both sweet and funny, and she
gets the audience every time.
Edith McClure, taking the part of Hein-
nrie, who plays the role of lover to Berts,
is a charming little actress. She proved a
success last evening in singing, especially
her Swiss Yodie. Hattie Hellen also deserves mention for playing the gentleman
role of Tom Horton. .
