Kelowna to Have Government
Demonstration Orchard
Department of Agriculture will Establish a Model Ten-acre
Orchard in this District.
Start Building       Lacrosse Team
The first three demonstration
orchards to be established by the
provincial government will be
located at Vernon, Summerland,
and Kelowna. To provide for
these the special grant of $10,000
included in the. estimates will be
utilized. The sites are being chosen
by B. Hoy, assistant to. R. M. Win-
slow; the provincial horticulturist.
In connnection with these farms
it is proposed to allot some ten
acres to each. Special attention
will be paid to the soil. A record
of all expenses and profits will be
kept so that the possibilities of the
industry may be accurately gauged.
Men selected from the district-
where the orchards are located will
be placed in charge, the officials
of the agricultural department exercising a supervision over the
general work.
Later on the goverment intends
to. establish one of these demonstration orchards on Vanconuer
Island in the vicinity of Victoria,
while another will have its location,
on the lower mainland.
R M, 'Winslowi provincial horticulturist, returned last week, says
the ColohistVJhoma peek's visit, to
Oregon and- Washington, "during
which he was the guest of Pfofes-
sor A. B. Cordley, of the Oregon
state agricultural college, in which
well established institution' he' has
just been offered, and refused a
professorship. A JtA 7;
"British Columbia looks good
enough for _ne'*said;^fWhi8l6w
with a laugh, wh"6rC"'asKed as to
whether o(- hot the refusal of the
profered professorship may be regarded as final.' "They are fine
people over there in Oregon, however," he .added; "and-if" I were
contemplating any change 1 do not
know any-whom I would rather
live among. They treated me royally" during my week's 'visit, and 1
cannot say tbo much for their friendliness oi their, hospitality. Nor
can any one .easily exaggerate the
scenic beauty of that Hood river
country - of -which they are so
proud. $A-
During his visit" across the line "
Mr. Winslow gave three successive
and successful lectures at. the
popular " grange meeting" at Hood
river discussing in" their order
"forms of winter injury" "spraying fluids" and the "handling of
nursery stock."
Spraying may be said to be Mr.'
Winslow's speciality and he is at
present busy giving practical demonstrations before] large audiences
There is, moreover, in the establishment of this orchard here a
great possibility. If it is well supported and appreciated by those
for whom it is intended, it may
prove but the nucleus for still
greater developments, and might
be extended so as to iqclude other
branches of agriculture. A model
poultry farm, for example, could
be run without necessitating any
considerable additional outlay, and
could do much to improve the
character of stock in the neighborhood, and to demonstrate the possibilities, with" right handling, of
this'promising industry.
: The recent visit of the deputy
minister to Kelowna will no doubt
have had something to do with the
choice of this district as a base for
early operations. Mr. Scott is a
shrewd man and knows a good
ting wheii.he.sees it, and the rapid
progress!! .^development of Kelowna anpiiris sui'roundirig country
must have impressed the government officials as itimpresses everyone" who sees it

Mr. Winslow will1 leave shortly
for this district and is scheduled to
be present at the meeting to be
held in Vernon on the 28th of this
month, when he will take up the
. question of the first demonstration
orchard, and make final arrangements in respect thereto. It is also
considered that a visit be made to
Summerland and to this town to
explain the project to the people.
That a demonstration orchard of
this kind will be a distinctadvantage
and a decided acquisition to Kel
owna and district there is no deny
ing. Kelowna people have long
been hoping and petitioning the
government with respect to the
..establishing of and experimental
farm for the district; in. order that
the possibilities of irrigated lands
for fruit-growing and other branches of agriculture might be more
thoroughly investigated. Although
a demonstration orchard, such as
the government propose to establish here is not an experimental
farm, yet it should prove of very
great assistance to th fruit-grower,
and especially to the beginner in
that line.
Instead of running around in
doubt and perplexity seeking information when the various operations of the year come due, Here
the would-be rancher will find a
reliable source of instruction, and
what, is more to the purpose, an
object lesson as to the best and
latest methods to be adopted.

communicate with the slip,
facilities for loading cars from
warehouse will be made. At
side of the warehouse will be a
platform, (90x25ft.) that will be
used for receiving the'various goods
from the farmer, and die office
will be right on the platform/ with
a proper weigh scale outside. -Next
to the office Will be a room for

mineral waters, and a pateht7force.
bottle cleaner, which cleans; two
dozen bottles at a time.
At the back of the platform will
be the work room, which will
measure 30x90ft., and in which
will be installed the machinery at'
present used by the cannery
company and other improved
machinery for the manufacture of
canned goods. Alongside this room
will be the cook room, (20x40ft.),;
•where all thecans will be boiled
in; order ' to cook the various
vegetables or fruits they contain.
Away from the cook room and
by itself, will be a building measuring 24x20ft, which will contain the
engine and a-new 50 h.p. boiler.
This room will supply all the
power necessary to successfully
run the whole plant.
■ The.room for"the manufacture
and storing of the mineral waters
will be frost proof, and will make
the storing of the bottles safe and
satisfactory during the winter
The project is one which shows
progress, and will possibly be a
means of building up the name of
this town, inasmuch as it will allow
for a larger export of the canned
goods which have already been
received with great satisfaction by
our neighbouring cities.
It is rumored that the new canning factory which starting the
work of. constructing its building
last year, will take the work in earnest this year and will construct the
proposed building on Manhattan,
beach in the early spring. It will
be remembered that the piles were
driven last year, but work was not
resumed owing to the fact that the
crop shortage in the valley was foreseen by the directors, and it was
considered that there would not
be sufficient produce to keep both
canneries working all the time.
The "Royal Chef," a musical

In order to get the club in good
working order it was necessary; to
purchase some fresh sticks, nets
and sweaters. This question' was
freely discussed, several suggestions
put forward as to what
color the sweaters should be. It
was.decided to stand by the. old

.Possibly a better attendance
would have been present if the

groceries or other things in town.

Mr. Sutherland gave a few hints
to those present interested in the
subject of bee culture, and said he
was at a loss to know why more
persons did not keep bees than at
present. They are very profitable,
and do not cost very much to keep
and the attention they require is
very little indeed.
Mr. Sutherland said that a person could look after about 18 hives
and still have time to spare for
other odd work, oudining also the
various methods of swam ing, ami
also of looking after bees.
He considered that it was unnecessary for/anyone to keep feed
especially for bees, as they usually
travelled x ground collecting honey
withfea radius of a mile frorn['their
Feed, however, in this valley was
scarce for bees. The ordinary red
clover was not mucn use for honey
Bees did much better if they had
large lime or acacia trees upon
which to get their feed.
Mr. Sutherland was proposing to
get the various materials used by
bee keepers, arid was glad that he
had not gone to the expense of
collecting them together, as there
were not sufficient present to make
a practical demonstration desirable

A handsome silver cup, possibly
the largest and most ornate trophy

the   provincial    government   has
presented to the Provincial Dairymen's association as  the prize  in
the  dairy  farm  competition   just
inaugurated, has reached Live-stock
Commissioner Hodson   from   the
manufacturers, and is exciting the
admiration,    and     possibly    the
covetoUsness, of all who have seen
it and  hope some day to own it.
The trophy is about three feet in
height, by perhaps eighteen inches
in diameter, standing upon a handsome oaken base.   Simplicity and
graceful lines are its chief characteristics   from   a  silversmith's viewpoint;  while its   solidity   excites
immediate comment.
The competition is to be conducted under the provincial dairy
regulations, and victory and the
ownership of the trophy will rest
with the farm most closely complying with the provincial regulations, judging will be upon the
general health of herds; the
sanitary conditions, ventilation, etc^
of dairy premises ; ; and the most"
efficient methods of handling the
dairy product while on the farm.

Saino Laui£_ of- Gum on
Fruit Trees.
Cherry, peach, and plum trees
are sometimes injured, and often
disfigured by gum oozing from the
bark in places. A little gum, here
and there, may do no special harm,
but often the trouble increases to
an expent that calls for treatment.
The gum oozing from the bark
of your trees may be from one of
three or four causes, says Prof. H.
A. Surface.    It may be
1. Mechanical injury, in~which
case the best thing to do is to
clean away the gum and paint the
wound with melted grafting wax or
beeswax, or even common house
paint, and let nature take care of it.
2. A fungous disease sometimes
called "gummosus," in which case
severe pruning back of trees, cultivation, fervilization of soil, and
watering ard about all that can be
done, as the purpose should be to
stimulate growth. This can not be
reached by spraying, as it is be~
neath the bark.
3. Bark borers or shot-hole
borers. These are the larvae of
very minute beetles, which make
tunnels beneath the bark. They
are also calli d " engraver beetles."
When they mature they bore
through the bark a»d leave holes
about the size of those made by
gun shot, or about the sixe of a.
pin's head. This is why they are
called "shot-hole borers." They
attack only trees that are delining.
There is no way of reaching them
in the sense of a remedy, but the
best thing to do is to prune back
the trees, cultivate the soil, and
water abundantly and frequently
with water containing a teaspoon-
ful of nitrate of soda in each gallon
of water. This is to stimulate
growth, and is often successful.
4. The fourth cause of gum is
a larger kind of borer, such as is to
be seen in peach and plum trees
frequently. This can be killed by
inserting a soft wire with a sharp
point, or by cutting out with a
sharp knife, slitting lengthwise
ratht-r than crosswise of the bark;
or by using the best possible of all
remedies for borers, which consists
of a liquid called bisulphide of
carbon put into a spring bottomed
oil-can, and injected into the holes
the borer occupies. Close up these
holes with mud or clay, and the
pest will be kiJIcc! at once and the
tree nut injured as it might be by
Sylvanus Van Aken, New York
state, says of the shot-hole borer:
I think that we can greatly check
this pest by thoroughly washing the
bark with a strong soap solution,
say  one  pound whale-oil soap in
four gallons of water, to which add
one   half-pint   of   crude   carbolic
acid.   This shot-hole borer spreads
quite slowly in an orchard.    Keep
the  trees  healthy  and   thrifty by
cultivation and feeding, and it will
help  much   in   discouraging   the
pest.    This   insect   is   noticed   by
small holes which it bores in the
bark.   There is sometimes a hole
for each- square inch of bark.    At
these points the sap or wax comes
out, lumps about the size of a grain
of wheat.   The leaves will drop off
the trees when the insect has got
fairly  started.     By examining the
holes one finds a small black insect
about the size of a flea.    When a
-tree is very badly infested there is
usually  no   hope  of  saving it.   I
would burn the tree at once, root
and branch. —Farm Journal.
Changes in Baseball Rules.
Two important changes in the
the 1910 baseball rules are announced: t ,
A runner is allowed three bases
if a player on the defence throws
a glove or a mask at a batted ball
and succeeds in hitting it or impeding its progress.
A The poacher's box has been
limited so that the coacher cannot
approach nearer to the first base
than fifteen feet. The dead line »
draw at an imaginary line directly
through the "first and second bases.
A bibulous young Siwash who
brought before Magistrate English
on Tuesday last, was sentenced to
30 days hard labor for his father
on the parental estate, instead of
the customary 30 days at the
government's free boarding house.
Young Mr. Indian developed a
glorious jag a few days ago and
proceeded to demonstrate the fact
by smashing things up generally.
He was very " sassy" to his Pa,
called the old gentleman a lot ol
nasty names, and wound up the
demonstration by punching his-
daddy's head. Papa Indian immediately had recourse to the
white man with the result already
mentioned. If the culprit objected
to perform any reasonable duties
he was to be returned to the
magistrate who undertook to see-
that the sentence,of hard work war
removed and substituted by thirty
day's rest in gaol.
It is rumored there is likely to be
a stronger baseball league this-
season than last, with Kelowna,

local team fighting it out for tht

serious fire. The burning of oil
made a very hot blaze. A couple
oi coats tnat were used to try and
smother the flames were burnt and
these created a suffocating smoke.
The flames caught the window
blinds and casings, charring them
up pretty badly. The members of
the club who worked at putting the
fire out were a " clean" looking
bunch at the finish; they resembled
a nigger minstrel troupe.
An enormous rock slide smashed
the electric pipe line to smithereens
on Monday, a week will elapse before the damage is repaired.
A number of our townspeople
were summonsed to appear before
Magistrates Foley - Bennett and
Mitchell on Tuesday evening of
last week for fast riding. All were
let off with costs on account of
ignorance of the by-law. All the
by-laws should be printed and kept
for sale at the Clerk's office. There
could then be no excuse.
The Fortune That Came to a Man and
_»       His Clever Wife.
Ad irishman named Whalen found
a fortune in a very amusing way.
says the Cape Town Argus. With the
savings of his wife he bought not far
from Ballarat a few acres of ground
containing a water pool and a sluggisu
spring. With the mud and gravel from
the bottom of the pool he made sun
dried bricks and, building a cabin for
himself and family, started a bar for
the miners.
Quite contrary to their usual habits,
a colony of Chinamen living near by
commenced to visit his bar every
night. Then Mrs. Wbalon discovered
that some one had bit by bit carried
off the mud pigstye and its surrounding wall so gradually that it bad almost gone before she noticed it Soon
the chimney and the- cabin walls also
began to vanish. After a careful
watch Mrs. Whalen discovered that
while one band of Chinamen kept her
husband busy in the bar another band
was stealing the chimneys and walls.
Whalen knew the Chinamen were no
fools, and, acting on his wife's suggestion, he also "stole a pan of dirt" from
his own chimney and washed it out
Then he ordered tents for his family
to live in and washed away the entire
house. It was literally built of gold
dust After that the pool and the
spring were also attacked, and the result was a big fortune for the lucky
Irishman and his cute little wife.

All  Thrte Were Trimmers,  but One
Was * Star.
The story, long since familiar, of the
little boy whose boast that his father
had put a oupola on his house was
capped by his playmate, who remarked proudly that his father had just
put a mortgage on theirs, is brought
to mind by an occurrence which was
told the other day by a prominent politician.
■ The small son of a man who was in
politics for revenue only on moving
Into a new district went out and
struck up an acquaintance with two
other kids of tbe same age who lived
in the neighborhood. They were interested in the newcomer and began
to try him out as to what his parents
amounted to anyhow.
"My father-is a window trimmer and
an awfully big man," said the first
"Ah, that's nothln'l" said the second.
"My father's a dump trimmer, and
he's twice as big as yours."
It was plainly up to the stranger to
make good. And he did it witb much
"My father Is a politician," he said,
"but I heard a man tell bim last night
that he was the biggest trimmer in
this ward."
And it was apparent to any one that
the new kid had made a strong impression upon the neighborhood.—New

Fred Thomson had an exciting

while driving from Salmon Arm
down the Kualt hill on his way to
his ranch across ihe lake. When
about half way down, the rear end
of the wagon left the road, taking

Wood Too Hard to Burn.
% There are certain kinds of wood that
are too hard to burn or refuse to ignite
for some other reason, such as iron-
wood and the good brier root, but it Is
a curiosity to come across a piece of
common deal—the soft, light wood of
which so many boxes are made—that
cannot be set fire to. The piece of
wood in question was common white
deal from Sweden, but was remarkable for its comparative weight It had
formed part of a boat belonging to a'
whaler and had been dragged below
the surface of tbe water to the depth
of more than half a mile by a harpooned whale. The length of line and
the short distance from the point of
descent after being struck at which
the whale rose to the surface was a
proof of the depth to which it had
dragged the boat Only part of the
boat came up again at the end of the
line, and it was taken on board when,
the whale had been killed. Tbat piece
of wood was so bard that it would set
burn in a gas jet. The weight of wa*
ter had compressed it.—London Standard.

an Indian in the .Canadian backwoods, is

Rod and Gun in Canada, published by W.

Three physicians were standing in
A downtown drug store tbe other day
wben one, who bad been looking at
|an evening paper, exclaimed: "Great
Caesar, here It is again!   l see it In
I tbe papers at least twice a month."
"What's that?" asked one of the otb-
'   "It's that popular fallacy about a
drowning man sinking for tbe third
time.   Here it says, Must as be was
' sinking for the tbird time be was saved
'by the timely arrival,' etc.   Tbe nest
time I see this tbird time business it
probably will read, 'Be sank for tbe
tbird time before aid could be bad and
i was drowned.'
I "Why will people get.that fool idea
tbat sinking for tbe tbird time must
needs be fatal to a drowning man?
Why, bless you, I saw a man sink a
naif dozen times before be was rescued alive. An uncle of mine, witnesses said, never sank but once, and
be was drowned. Tbe number of times
'a man sinks bas nothing to do wltb
bis drowning. Be may sink but once,
and tie may go beneath tbe water any
number of times, it all depends upon
tbe person who is drowning, his physical condition and'bow quickly tbe
lungs fill with water."
i "That cycle of'three," suggested another of the doctors, "is carried along
by those who insist tbat a person dies
in his third suggestive chill. But this
la not true. Tbe same rule bolds good.
in congestive chills as in the case of'
tbe drowning man. A person' may die
In the first or he may have a dozen
and still live. The rule of three does
not obtain there either."
■: The first physician, with great dis-:
^daln, then told bow many ignorant
persons would swear that "if ye git
th* malary an'- it' runs into typhoid
fever an' it runs into newmony it's
shore death.",,
There's that same old rule of three
again," be condBited almost angrily.
."First and foremost, one disease does
not run into another.   There's no such
tbing as a collision between diseases,
as many believe.   If one bas malaria
he has that and that alone.   The same
thing is true of typhoid fever and
fpnetunonia.   Each one is a jeparate
and distinct trouble, and a doctor with
any sense should be able to diagnose
his malady: from symptoms which are
;ilways present, In each and entirely
'different" yy'A.y 77
|   From popular fallacies in regard to
; medicine: the conversation drifted to
fallacies regarding the law.   A lawyer
present.was called upon to explain
first one thing and another, when one
of the bystanders said:        v
'"1 made a bet the other day that a
person had no right to touch a dead
body until the coroner arrived, and I
(Won."' .■ • ...:..77.
"Who decided the question for yon?"
'asked the lawyer smilingly.
J   'JjWell," said the man sheepishly; "It
,iwas a bartender, but lie's an educated
fellow and is a good judge of the law."
i   "You spea^-of the law as if It were
'eoniething to be judged like cattle at
a fat^Btock show," replied the attorney.
"There is no law on any statute, book
In any state In the United States which
■says one may not touch a body before
Jthe arrival of the coroner.
"In case of murder tbe old English
common law used to require that the-
body of the murdered one be left just
i«s it lay until viewed by one in author-
jftjrv'   .--
• "That was done, it can plainly be
seen, for the purpose of preserving the
surroundings Intact, so that whatever
evidence might be there would not be
^disturbed. - In case of a murder today*
especially if any mystery were connected with it, common sense would
teach a person to leave everything Intact, not alone for the coroner, but for
tlie police officials as well. Rut should
the body of a murdered man be moved
there is no law covering it unless It
could be proved that the person who
moved the body did it with the intention to destroy evidence. In cases of
rolcide or death by accident there
ebuld be no objection to moving the
body anywhere in tbe city if done with
humane or some other proper motive."
,»j$PH tell you what ta the law." said
fl^itoop shouldered, long armed man
who had been listening long enough
to get the gist of tbe discussion. "If a
fellow sees a murder through a pane
of glass he can't be a witness In the
"case."        "
"Oh, piffle!" exclaimed the attorney.

Reports of Wizards are still
coming from various parts of the
Northwest. In other parts seeding
has commenced, and little chance
of a set back is expected.
Settlers are arriving in large
numbers already, and the eastern
trains are becoming packed with
home seekers and farm hands.
Both are greatly needed in the
districts, as work is very plentiful.
The C. P. R. will spend about
$60,000 in Weyburn for the pur-
pore of erecting new freight sheds
and completely re-building the
station. Construction, on the
Weyburn-Lethbridge line is expected to forge ahead rapidly.
Kaiser, Saskatchewan, isabout to
build a livery barn, and anticipates
forging ahead in good shape this
year. A blacksmith is expected to
start up business in the course of
a few weeks.
High prices are prevalent in the
Northwest just now; as high as
30 cents a dozen is paid for eggs,
and butter from 25 to 30 cents a
pound. Hogs are standing at 12c.
a pound.
The Weyburn Rural Telephone
Co. proposes to extend its operation
during the coming summer, and
have decided to build ten to twelve
miles of pole line in the direction
of Montieths. The company is
regarded as one of the best managed and most prosperous in the
province of Saskatchewan.

Canada's Drinh Bill
Canada consumed in 1908 for each thousand of its population, 889 gallons of spirits,
5,812 gallons of beer, 96 gallons of wine, a
total of 6,797 gallons. In 1907 the comsump.
tion was 6,624 gallons; in 1906, 6,207 gallons; in 1905,5,981 gallons.
The total quantities of intoxicating liquors
of different kinds  taken   for consumption
during the fiscal year ending March 3ltt,
1908, were as follows, the figures being for
gallons .—
Canadian spirits .3,927,322
Imported spirits 2,127,4/8
Canadian malt liquors 38,800,360
Imported malt liquors 1,096,256

Estima ing that Canadian spirits bring
$6 per gallon, imporcd $8 per gallon, Canadian malt 70c gallon, imported malt $2
gallon, and wines $5 per gallon, Canadians
spent $76,867,649 in 1908.
The customs and excise duties collected
by the government upon these liquors, in

collected for distillery, brewery" and mult
house licences, amounts to a total of
An Impoverishing 'Process
The spending of $76,867,649, for intoci-
cants, must have a serious effect upon the,
prosperity of the Dominion.    If a man goes |
into a shoe store and purchases five dollais',
worth of goods, he has something to show!
for  his money.   He is presumably  better
off  because   of the transaction, while   the
shoe dealer has also profited.   If the five
dollars is spent for drink at a bar, the dealer may be a gainer, but the buyer is absolutely five   dollars poorer, because of the |
transaction.   In a sense, this difference holds
between expenditur   on drink and every
other kind of expenditure.
The %tvenue Offset
There is a partial off-set to this. The
Government needs a revenue for public
purposes, which must be provided in some
way by the people. If it were not furnished by the drinker through the liquor traffic
it would have to be supplied by him and
his fellow citizens in some other way.
The amount of the national liquor revenue has already been stated. The aggre; ate
of all the provincial and municipal revenues
from the liquor traffic is less than $2,000,000
If we take the total national, provincial and"

this from the amount paid for strong drink,

Drink money put into other channels

From the figures of the special census
of manufacturing industries taken in 1906,
we learn that for evety million dollars cf
capital invested, the liquor traffic employed only 150 men, while the average of
other industries employed 472 men, and
that the liquor traffic paid less than $66,000
in wages, while the average of other industries paid more than $198,000 in wages.
Heavy Expenses Incurred
There are large public expenditures,
chargeable against the liquor traffic, such
as a proportion of the cost of the establishment and maintenance of asylums for
the insane, hospitals, courts, police forces
and a host of other corrective and charitable institutions and agencies.—"The Pioneer."

Opposed to Bouleoard.
Because they dp not want automobiles
running near their property, farmers along
the route of the proposed Frontier Boulevard, along the Niagara River, from Fort
Erie to Queenston, have banded together,
in an endeavour to prevent the park commission from building the boulevard, and
are refusing to sell their^Iand to the commission. As a result, the commission is
taking steps to have the land it requires
Nelscn Board of Trade.
At the last meeting of Nelson board of
trade a letter was read from Mr. W. E.
Scott, deputy minister of agriculture, in
reply to the board's resolution asking for
the establishment in Kootenay of a fumigation station for nursery stock. ~Mr. Scott
said the request had often been urged by
eastern nurserymen, whom alone it would
benefit. He expressed the opinion that
the amount of nursery stock imported was
getting so small that it would not justify
the expense of establishing and maintaining
a station. The inspector had had trouble
with infection from eastern Canada and
the deputy minister recommended buying
local stock instead of from districts where
conditions'were different.
Plot»8 and Harrows Busy in the
With the season fully a month ahead
of time, and April weather prevalent during the past few week, reports of spring
plowing and even seeding are coming in.
Farmers are nonplussed as. to what to
make of this peculiar phenomenon, but
but they put it down to Halley . comet,
and are making the best,U3e of their opportunities. In some quarters the opinion
holds that a late spring may follow, but
many old-timers declare that the country
was never the worse for a mild March.

J. G. Nelson. William Gosnell, j. A. Gilker,

that coal will b^e shipped. This and the

To Protect Fjsh and Game.
Inspired by a desire to improve the.
hunting and fishing conditions in the province a number of Nimrods gathered at
the St Francis hotel Vancou-vcr last week
and organized the British Columbia Fish
and Game Protective association. The
object as outlined in the constitution! ire to
assist in the protection of fish and game in
British Columbia, and to promote and'encourage field sports and- good fellowship
among  sportsmen.
" Behind the announced objects of the association however, is a desire to amend
the game acts with regard to_ fishing;
Just at present the provincial Game act is
in statu quo owing to a conflict the Federal and Provincial governments over the
control of the waters: of theprovince, both
cliaming the right to make regulations for
them. The association members believe
that the province is the prober party to
deal with.its fisheries and it hopes to be
strong enough some day to give weight'to
the claim of this province to control its
fisheries. The present Dominion act which
is in force ii not suitable for various parts
of the province, the regulations which may
apply to the coast at certain seasons not
suiting the inland waters, and it is to make
an act to suit these local conditions that
the association will lend it services.
Suffragettes Turn Firemen.   '
The freaks of the suffragettes have
hitherto, caused more amusement than
annoyance to the bulk of the Londoners,
but more than a little indignation was
excited recently when seven of them drove
a hired fire engine at high speed through
the West End streets at a busy hour. The
women, wearing a copy of the firemen's
uniforms, managed the engine, which was
decked with the suffragette colours. The
familiar note of the fire gong caused the
traffic to follow the custom of drawing
aside to let the engine pass and the ears of
the police, being equally deceived, the
constables assisted in clearing'the way
until' the fraud was discovered and the
career of the engine was stopped.
Pageantry Appeals to the Negro's
@ Tropical Imagination..
Once upon a time a Philadelphia
lawyer came south. He had a pair of
big spectacles, an inquisitive mind,
and he wanted to kuow. says Harris
Dickson in Success Magazine. With
his southern friend he was hurrying to
the courthouse. A. negro parade blocked the street—negroes iu carriages, on
horseback, on foot; negroes with
swords and axes, stumrjy negroes with
Masonic banners, lean negroes with
Pythian devices, fat negroes with Odd
Fellows' insignia, miscellaneous negroes with miscellaneous emblems.
The Philadelphlan pushed through
the crowd and ran back In great ex-
citement. "What's It all about? What
are they doing?"
The southerner couldn't explain, but
beckoned to a very intelligent young
negro—who, by the way. was a prominent politician—and asked, "Tom,
what's the occasion for all this parade?"
The young negro laughed. "Now,
jedge, you ought to know dat a nigger
don't need no 'casion for a parade."
Tom had spoken a mouthful. Pageantry appeals to the negro's tropical
Imagination. Churches and lodges furnish most of the social life that ho
knows. He does not ask why the
brass band is playing. He keeps Btep
with the feMow that beats the dram
and Is happy. -
A 8cotch Shepherd's Remedy Per All
.■'. Kinds of Maladies.
A highland shepherd, one Donald
McAlpin, a famous dancer, was reputed to have cured his mistress of a
mysterious malady by means of dancing a reel with her, and this story being nosed abroad gained him the reputation of being a successful physician.
His humble cottage in Slockmuicfe,
overlooking Strathspey, was besieged
with crowds of patients who hoped to;
get rid of their ailments by a dance,
with Donald. The shepherd did not.
hesitate to take advantage of this;
stroke of good luck and soon had a
large and thriving practice.
The treatment adopted was very simple, the main features being as follows: In cases of Indigestion moderate
doses of medicated "aqua" were taken, followed by the ceum sbuil, or
promenade step. For catarrh Donald
prescribed In order to produce perspiration a large dose of gruel mixed
with honey and butter, followed by
ceum crask, or highland fling. All the
different processes terminated in the
patient being well wrapped up in
warm blankets, und the doses of medicine and dancing were repeated, according to the  patient's constitution
,and the nature of his disease.—British

One of the Ancient Seven Wonders of
f the World.
The ancients succeeded In  making
that alloy of copper which Is known as
bronze.   Among the seven wonders of
the   world   was   tbe   famous   statue,
Wholly   made  of   bronze,   historically1
known as the Colossus of Rhodes.   It]
represented Phoebus, the national dei-i
ty of the Rhodians.   It was begun by
Chares, a pupil of LysippuB, the sculptor, and was completed by Laches 283 {
B. 0.    Tbe popular belief is that it
stood astride the harbor of Rhodes,
that it was 105  feet high and that
ships could easily sail between its legs.
Pliny said that few men could clasp
its thumb. It was cast on metal plates,
afterward joined together, and this
process occupied twelve years. In th*
interior was a spiral staircase reach-'
Ing into Its head, and in a great mirror
suspended to its neck were reflected
the coast of Syria and the ships sailing
to Egypt
After It had stood for sixty-four
years this colossus was overthrown by,
an earthquake, aud its remains lay on
the shore for 023 years—tbat is, until
A. D. 672—when they were sold by the
Saracens to a doaler. The original
cost was 800 talents—about $6,000,000--;
and it is not too much to say that •
Bimilar image might be constructed
now in one-fonrth of tbe time .and at
one-third of tbe original cost. Rhodes,
by the way, must hnve had colossus1
on the brain, for Pliny relates that the
port was adorned with, 1,000 colossal
statues of the sun. ' I

The Ordeal of Getting Past the Aged
Ticket Taker.
Tbe first difference I always find b»j
tween going to tbe play in London and
in New York Is that in New York the1
man who has paid for a seat ia made
to feel that be is a patron of the house,
while in London be Is greeted by the
staff of the theater not exactly as an
intruder, but as a necessary evil. They
appreciate tbat au audience is a necessary evil, but sooner than have one
they would almost prefer to close the
house. i
In London for tbat importantly strategic outpost of ticket taker an old
man of eighty is always employed.
You think this is accident, but It to
not Old age naturally suggests failing
eyesight and when be keeps you waiting in tbe foyer while be examines
your ticket and assures himself that it
is not a laundry bill or a motor bus receipt you attribute tbe delay to bis old
eyes. But in detaining you be has a
motive. Standing at bis elbow, scowling darkly, there always Is another
man, apparently a plain clothes out
from Scotland Yard, uncomfortably
disguised in evening dress. And while'
the aged ticket taker pretends to scru-
nitize your ticket the lookout man
scans you. You rnn not escape his eye.

Flies at Sea.
The finding of files and butterflies
a long way out at sea Is perhaps to
most readers a fact not very well
known. A recent traveler In the tropics relates that wben thirty miles
out from land a plague of flies overtook the vessel on which he was steaming. The cabin.was so full of them
that the beams were blackened. Common black house-lies, they were for
the most part with, however, a good
sprinkling of large green files. Where
they could have come from was a mystery, but they were a.terrible nuisance,
and, although those on board swept off
hundreds in a net, their numbers were
not sensibly diminlsbed. Another singular circumstance was that although
ho land was in sight, large dragon
flies repeatedly flew across the ship,
and a large dark butterfly was observed to flit across.in the direction of the
nearest land, quite thirty miles away,
without stopping to rest on the vessel

Both Rather Flippant
There is a curious parallelism between two stories told respectively of
the late Mr. Spurgeon and of Dean
. Mr. Spurgeon on hearing of the devastation wrought by an earthquake in
Essex merely remarked, "I am glad to
hear that my county is moving at last."
Tbe dean of St Patrick's, Dublin,
was watching with a friend the roof
of a building on wblch several men
were at work fixing slates. Suddenly
one of tbe men vanished. Thereupon
the dean turned to his companion and
said, "I like to see a man go quickly
through bis work."

There cannot be a more desirable spot than
Kelowna and district for the man, who wants to
let up a little on the hard toil of the prairie, or
to the family looking for a more congenial spot
to settle in, where life's necessities, together with
a few 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.
