Meeting of City Council
Lease of the Agricultural Grounds to the A. & T. Association
-   Question of the Acquisition of Water Rights by the
City Discussed
A meeting of the City council
was held Saturday evening, April
30th, the mayor, Aid. Jones, Stirling
and Cox being present. The
minutes of last meeting were read
and confirmed.
The followiug accounts were referred to the finance committee, to
be paid if found correct:

Public Park ....$ 18 00

A deputation from the Agricultural and Trades Association, consisting of Mr. DuMoulin, Mr. W.
Blackwood and Mr. B. McDonald
attended in reference to the leasing
of the Agricultural and Athletic
grounds to the association for a
period of ten years.
A lease had been drafted out for
the purpose of submitting to the
council, but the wording of the
lease as drafted was not altogether
approved by the deputation themselves, inasmuch aa it failed to protect their interests in respect to any
improvements which they might
make during the next few years.
Mr. DuMoulin pointed put that
the A. & T. Association proposed
spending this year abopt$1000 in
improving the tract and" ifr other
ways, and that a similar sum might
be spent next and following years.
They did not want to do this with-
outsome assuranceiof compensation
in the event of the grounds passing
into other hands.
The way in which this assurance
could be given so as to be satis-
- factory to both parties was not
quite clear, and several suggestions
were i offered, each being open to
some objection. It was eventually
decided that the points raised
should be discussed in committee,
- and a fresh lease prepared embodying the necessary clause, to be
submitted to the council at the next
meeting.
As the A. & T. Association were
anxious to start their improvements
at once, the mayor assured the
deputation that they might go a
head with the work as a satisfactory
solution of the difficulty' would no
doubt be arrived at.
Mr. DuMoulin thought the council ought to provide means of
lighting, as the wires were already
laid past the exhibition building.
This was also left over for the
committee to discuss. The deputation then retired.
On the motion of Aid. Stirling
seconded by Aid. Cox, By-law No.
73 was read a second time. The
by-law, it will be remembered, is
to provide a special rate of 3 cents
per foot frontage for watering the
streets in the business: part of the
town. The rate is restricted to
occupiers of premises within a
limited area in the centre of the
city. ■*.■•.-
As no objections were raised or
modifications suggested, the by-law
was read a third time.
Aid. Jones then introduced the
question of irrigation within the
city limits. This matter of irrigation,
he said, was becoming an important
one. People were wondering what
was the exact position of the city
in the matter, and what steps . the
council intended taking in respect
to it. Three years ago, he believed,
the matter had been dealt with by
the council of that time, but had
been dropped again. He would
like to know whether it was the
intention of the present council to
do anything as regards the future
management of the system.
Mayor Sutherland said that in
1908 Aid. Stirling and himself had
taken some interest in the question
of the city taking over the distribution of the irrigation water within
the city, and they had gone to far

as to travel to Victoria to interview
the government commissioners on
the subject. Summerland had also
taken the matter up. An act had
been passed, giving municipalities
power to take over irrigation systems within their limits, and
Summerland had taken over their's
under that act. Summerland, however, was in a rather different
position from Kelowna. They had
to deal only with two or three land
companies. The water could not
be taken over without obtaining
the consent of the present owners
of the land, and it was a rather
difficult matter for Kelowna to
arrange with such a host of different
holders of lots.
The discussion on this subject
continued in a desultory fashion
for some time.
Aid. Stirling held the view that
what was wanted was a special act
enabling the council to compel
the people to hand over their water
rights.
The Mayor said that in a conversation he had had with the
Attorney-General, the latter had
expressed the opinion that the
government could give no greater
powers in a private bill than in a
general one.. The government had
no right to tal;e away any power of
that kind. It could no more take
away a man's water rights than it
could come into his house and take
atvay his lamp. There were certain
things the government could not
do. The water had been turned
bver ;to the "people without fany «
restrictions, and it was impossible jh
Last Thursday afternoon the
town, on holiday bent, was started
by what is becoming the all too
familiar sound of the fire whistle.
Smoke was seen rising in clouds to
the east of the town, and the
information was soon handed round
that the Hawksdale Dairy, the
property of R. E. .Harriss, was on
fire.
The gasoline fire engine was
brought out, and a team frorn
Davy's livery hitched on as quickly
as possible.
As the dairy is some three miles
out, it was necessarily some little
time before the brigade arrived.
The house was then well alight and
past all hope of saving. As there
was no wind at the time very little
danger was apprehended as to the
surrounding buildings.
Some little delay was experienced in getting the engine started. A
portion of the mechanism had been
bent in the rough journey from
town. Fortunately there was no
need for hurry and after
a jet of water was got into

by any-general or private act to
take it away. The people could be
asked if it was their wish that the
council should take oVer the
management pf the water, and the
question would have to be voted
upon in the same way as a money'
by-law. If the vote was in favor
then the council would proceed to
make arrangements with the
different holders. 'This was -a
difficult matter with the large
number of holders of water rights
in Kelowna.
Aid. Stirling said the.city did not
want to regulate the water. What
they wanted was to obtain control
so. as to distribute water without
doing damage to property. The
government ought to give them this
power. It was possible in other
things when public interest demanded to compel a man-to give
up his rights. Expropriation was a
recognized principal of government
and was in operation in England
and in all countries.
" What stage are we at?" asked
Aid. Cox, after the discussion had
continued for some time. " What
course are we to take this year ?
The same as last ? "
The mayor said the city had no
responsibility in the matter. There
was the point, too, that as the city's
water works system was extended
the need for the irrigation water
would gradually diminish.
Aid. Stirling said there would
always be people desirous of using
the irrigation water. However, the
city might grow there would always be open gardens and orchards
for which people would want the
water.
Aid. Jones pointed out that a
public meeting of the water users
would shortly be called, and the
whole matter could be gone into
and fully discussed then.
After a little further informal
talk the subject was dropped.
Aid. Stirling said he would like
to ask if some other time for the
council meetings would suit the
other aldermen.
Monday morning 10 o'clock was
eventually decided upon, the next
meeting to be Monday, May 16.
The committee who have charge
of the arrangements for the Victoria
day sports, are working hard to
get an extra good programme this
year. They expect by the end of
the week to be able to publish the
more important detail*.

The fire had started in the back
portion of the house, and in a short
space of time the dairy, which stood
in the rear, was utterly destroyed,
with all machinery and. utensils
which it contained.
Several people working in the
orchards in the neighborhood
noticed^ the fire and ran in to help.
They were able to rescue the
whole of the  furniture fronr tKe
ouse, and even 'the doors and
.windows before.the fire got a real
hold of it.
The loss of all the dairy utensils
and machinery placed Mr. S. M.
Gore, who is managing the dairy
in the absence of Mr. Harriss, in an
awkward fix. There were not even
pails left in which to do the evening's milking, and these had tb be
procured frorn town w ite all speed.
A large quantity of butter and
bottled fruits was.destroyed, and a
quantity of ice. which had been
stored for summer use, was deprived of its protecting shed, and
considerably reduced in bulk by
the heat.
Mr. Gore and his staff are at
present living in tents, pending the
re-building of the house. Mr. R.
E. Harriss, who has been spending
the winter in Trinidad, has been
apprised of the misfortune, and
will probably return home without
delay.
The loss has only been roughly
estimated, but will probably reach
about $3000, two thousand of
which is covered by insurance.
Mr. Gore himself lost about $75 or
$100 worth of personal effects.
Mr. and Mrs. C. Jones, who
were employed by Mr. Gore, and
who had came down from Vernon
only about a month ago, lost
practically all they possessed. They
were living in a tent to the rear of
the dairy, and in an early stage of
the fire the tent was destroyed, and
.with it all their clothing, etc.
• Had the fire reached the numerous other buildings the loss would
have been very much greater, but
stillness of the air at the time, and
the efforts of fire brigade happily
averted such a catastrophe.

Chinese Immigration
Increasing.
The number of Chinese landed
during'the month of April was far
in excess of the number brought ih
during any previous month since
the head tax of $500 came into
force. The total number who paid
the poll tax during April was 378.
Quite a number of these, probably
fifty per cent, were men who had
been in Canada previously, and
were returning after the expiration
of the twelve months allowed them
to remain in China and still be
.eligible for return. ,  .,
The sum paid by Chinese,
mostly by the newcomers was
$ 139,046. This is niore than
double the biggest total during any
other month since the head -tax
went into effect, the largest receipts
for Chinese prior to this month
being in June, A 908, when the collections from • this source were
$67,539, head tax having been
paid during that month by 135
new arrivals.
Naval Estimates Passed.
Mr. and Mrs. S. M. Gore wish to
thank the many friends who so
kindly assisted them in saving the
furniture and other goods during
the fire at Mr. Harriss' house, and
the fire brigade for their effective
work.

through committee of supply Saturday, the total amount voted being $3,676,500. of which $3,000,000.

None of this money is for the

A conversation with Mr. B. Mc
Donald of the Farmer's Exchange,
the other day, elicited a few facts
which will undoubtedly be of interest to the fruit grower and
gardener.
- Mr. McDonald is in a position to
know what he is talking about,
and appears to thoroughly understand and appreciate the situation
both from the fruit grower's standpoint, and from that of the wholesaler or commission man, and this
fact makes any suggestions or conclusions of Mr. McDonald all the
interesting and valuable.
During the time the operation
of the Farmers' Exchange has been
under Mr. McDonald's charge, he
has made many trips to eastern
points, opening up markets for
Kelowna produce, and has noted
our fruit lying side by side in competition with that of various parts
of America, and does, of course,
in the ordinary details of his work,
come in constant contact with the
final test of all—the man who pays
for it.
It was a pleasure to learn that
excellent success had so far attended his efforts in placing Kelo'vvna
fruit, and meeting anv and all
competition,.but as the market develops .and  the   trade increases,
many propositionssKiS'il^P1,68601
themselves in _K*£§S_!$$^g and
growing of the fruit, propositions
which will have to be met, and
quickly too, if this rapidly growing
market it to be maintained and
competition fully met.
One of the propositions, said
Mr. McDonald, was the putting of
the best keeping quality into fruit
and vegetables by judicious watering jind the;intellegent use. of fertilizers. This "did not affect the
smaller retail trade so much as the
trade with the larger wholesale
houses, who buy in large quantities
and <placing the bulk in cold storage. This was the main market
upon which we had to depend,
and for which the fruit must be
grown.
A change was rapidly taking
place in this market, the buyers
preferring to buy in smaller quantities, putting only sufficient into
storage to carry them over the
winter, getting clean fresh packed
goods in the spring, and saving
freight and risk upon the culls
which develop in the stored fruit.
His experience, said our informant, all pointed to the fact that the
keeping quality was largely in the
hands of the grower. He strongly
condemned the practice of many
growers to push the growth of the
trees and fruit unnaturally, by oyer
irrigation, thinning and pruning,
causing quick pulpy growth, unnatural and forced,. havin° no sta"=
ing quality, and developing water
core and other defects.
A particular instance was given
were a fine large sample ofWagners
hadbeen offered him and which he
had been compelled to decline
taking any risk. The fruit was
much.larger than the average Wagner, fine colored, and very attractive
but the growth had been too unnatural, leaving the flesh much too
sappy or pulpy, indicating to any
one at all acquainted with storage,
4hat a very large per cent of waste
would occur, no matter how well
the apples were stored. The fruit
was taken in at the owner's risk,
and turned out exactly as expected,
over fifty per cent, culled before
being placed on the market. A
more natural, steady growth, both
of tree and fruit, with a proper proportion of fertilizer to supply soil
waste, is what is required, to put
the best keeping quality into the
fruit. The same applies to the
growing of onions. The man who
properly feeds his crops putting
substance and body instead of water only, is the man who is
going to have the steadiest market
for his produce.
That this had already been recognized by the wholesaler is
strongly evidenced as before stated)
and places our local men ih a
position of having to use extra
care in selecting the fruit for atot-
has taught them to avoid.
Fruit, growers are wide-awake
men generally, and Mt. McDonald's
warning note will be welcomed by
all those who delight to produce
only the best, and so' maintain the
already high standard of Kelowna
fruit.
Western Canada Making
Big Jump This Yerr.
All the indications are that this
is to be a record-breaking year in
the annals of the development of
Western Canada. The immigration
during last month was  the  largest"
for any month since  immigration
to this country begem.    The total
immigration last month  was 33,-
065, of which   17,310  came  from
the United States and 15,755 came
vie ocean ports.     The magnitude
of this total makes it look not at all
unlikely that the  estimates which
were made  early last month, that
the year's immigration would reach
the 4Q0.000 mark, may be found to
fall short when the actual total for
the year comes to be added up.
The evidences of growth and expansion are visible in all parts of
the country.
The work of developing the resources, of the West is going forward with great energyand rapidity
New settlers in their tens of thousands are going in upon the land,
and widening immensely the total
area of fertile soil of the prairies
and British Columbia. Construction work of all kinds is being undertaken,, being only limited by
the rate at which new capital can
be secured. Business of every
kind, according to the numerous
trade journals, has received a considerable impetus during the past
few months, and another period of
rapid expansion seems to have set

meeting was held at which it was
decided to ask the employers for
an increase of three cents per hour_
and a fifty hour week instead of
fifty-four. It was proposed that
instead of working a shorter day
the four hours should be taken off
on Saturday afternoon. The employers however have refused to
grant their request, hence the strike.

There is a movement on foot
thoughout Canada to observe
next Sunday, May 8th as
"Mother Day." The movement
was we believe started last year
by the Home fournel, and has
already received wide recognition. We have our Labor Day
and Dominion Day and Victoria Day and why not a Mothers'
Day ? what more fitting to be
honored than the mothers of
the nation ? The mothers who
worked, and watched and suffered for our benefit? Who
cared for us and loved us when
we were young and helpless
and probably ungrateful too ?
Why not?
The idea is a beautiful one
and worthy of all support. The
wholesome influnce on the
young especially of a day sei
apart for the honoring of motherhood can not be estimated.
And we would suggest to our
young friends who are fortunate in still having mothers to
be kind in that they remember
her on that day with some little
present, and won't she value it,
however small!    You see !
Every one is expected to
wear a white flower on that day,
so don't forget to get one.

Editor Orchard City Record,
Dear Sir,—Enclosed herewith is
a letter taken from the Vancouver
Daily Province.
The thought struck me that the
people of this valley, who are enjoying a large measure of prosperity,
would probably be glad of the
opportunity of helping in such a
work, if only the facts were brought
before their notice. There are few
of us who could not afford the
ninepence (eighteen cents) necessary to give a day's outing to one
of the poor little mites, and I would
suggest that if you could see your
way clear to open up a subscription
list in your paper a substantial sum
might be collected.
You will notice there is no "sifting through a ladder." Every cent
subscribed is used directly for the
for the chidren.
I may say that I came from London myself, and have seen something of the wretchedness and
squalor in which they live, and
know how much such a treat would
be valued, but cannot, of course
estimate the good results it may
have on the child's life.
Trusting that this will meet with
your approval, and a good round
sum will be collected for so «yor*hy
an object, I beg to remain
Yours truly,
Wm.GAY
Editor Province,—Will you permit me to
ask your readers to help me in the Fresh
Air Fund, which exists for the purpose of
giving the children from the worst fluma
of England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales,
holidays in the country. Last year, as the
result of special appeals in my own newspapers and periodicals, and of kindly
assistance given to the F. A. F. by editors
and owners of other papers in placing such
an appeal as this before their readers,
the F. A. F. was enabled to send
no fewer than 266,200 waifs away
from the alums of our big towns and cities
for a day's pure air and sunshine in the
country, where these needjr little guests
were given two good meals and plenty of
healthy and stimulating amusement.
The worst and most neglected cases—
4050 in number—were treated th a special
division, and were despatched to holiday
homes and taken care of for a whole fortnight ; and I can not easily over-emphasize
the importance of this departure of the
Fresh Air Fund.
IA unique feature of the Fresh Air Fund
is that no charge whatever ia made for
expenses in connection with it. There are
no salaries of officials, rent has to be paid,
none of the thousand and one expenses
such as printers' bills and postage stamps
whifch eat up so large a proportion of the
revenue of moat charities, is charged against i
the amount subscribed to the Fresh Air
Fund. The journals with which I am
connected defray the whole of these costs,
and every penny goes intact lo the benefit
of the poorest of poor children. Thus, if
anybody sends us the sum of ninepence,
he or she can be absolutely certain one
little one will be rescued for a day at least
from the gloomy and grimy surroundings
in which he ordinarily lives and moves,
while a remittance of ten shillings ensures
that a half-starved mite will have a whole
fortnight - holiday attendance, relief and
change. There is something peculiarly
sad and poignant about the unwanted and
unloved child of the slums, and 1 feel
instinctively that I have but to summon up
the image of its natural loneliness and un-
happiness to make the hearts of your
readers—who may have lost a little one, or
have bright and healthy children of their
own—beat very tenderly and generously
in regard to the Fresh Air Fund. I re-
member, for instance, one of my workers
telling me how one day she visited an
unsavory district in the east end of London,
taking with her a present for a little girl
who had no parents, and seemed to have
no friends, but lived on sufferance with
seme relatives, picking up a precarious
meal where and how she could.
Before handing over the present (it was
a dress) she chanced to say to the little
one, quite at random, "Now Madge, here
is the gift I promised you, but tell me first
what you would like best." The little one
looked wistfully at her for a moment, and
then said very softly, " I would like to sit
on your knee for a minute and pretend
that I was your little girl."
An there are practically 300,000 Madges
in our slums today, waiting in much the
same plight, with the same pathetic wist-
fulness and eagerness for men and women
they do not know to help the Fresh Air
Fund secure them a day's sympathy and
respite. I do therefore beg your readers
to help the Fresh Air Fund now and at
once; and further, to interest their own
children in so humane and satisfying a
social service to others, and persuade them
also to become little Fresh Air Fund
missionaries. The address of the honorary
secretary of the Fresh Air Fund is 23, St.
Bride street, London, E.C. I am, dear sir,
yours faithfully, /

[Our correspondent's suggestion
is a good one. There is no doubt
as to the deserving nature of the
work which C. Arthur Peaison
has made his hobby for some
years past. It is difficult for anyone who has not lived in London
or other of the great cities oi the
Old Country, to realize how utterly
destitu|f and friendless are many
of the dhildren who live in the
slum districts. Numbers of them

• A Crazy Craft.
On its voyage down Kootenay lake last
Thursday the steamer Kuskanook sighted
a strange craft, a raft made of a couple of
small logs and a biscuit box. Frank Karee
a Finlander, had set sail from Kootenay
Landing for Rossland to see his brother.
His oars consisted of a single pole, to
which was tacked a shingle, his provisions
.for the voyage consisted of five old bones
and a bag of salt. Favored by the currznt
the lonely navigator had then made four
miles of his voyage, After landing passengers for the Crow the Kuskanook put about
and overhauled Karee and took him aboard.
He was evidently demented.
The splendid work of Chamberlain's
Stomach and Liver Tablets is daily coming
to light. No such grand remedy for liver
and bowel troubles was ever known before,
Thousands bless them for curing constipation, sick headache, biliousness, jaundice
and indigestion.   Sold by all druggists.
STOMACH AGONY
Abolish the Cause, and Misery and
Distress of Indigestion will Vanish
Can indigestion be cured ? Hundreds of
thousands of people who suffer from belching of gass : biliousness, sour stomach, fullness, neusea, shortness of breath, bad
taste in mouth, foul breath, nervousness
and other distressing symptoms, are asking
themselves that question daily.
And if these same doubting dyspeptics
could only read the thousands of sincere
letters from people who once suffered as
badly as the Po now, but who have been
quickly and peranantly cured by the use of
Miona, the mighty dyspepsia remedy that
cures by removing the cause, they would
go to P. B. Willits & Co. this very day and
get a large box of Mi-o-na tablets, and
start themselves on the right rod to health
at once.
The price of Mi-o-na tablets is only 50c
and P. B. Willits or Co. guarantees them to
cure indigestion or money back.
Thin or lean or scraWney people will
find in Mi-o-na a maker of flesh and blood,
because it causes the stomach to extract
more nutritious matter, frbm the food, which
quickly enriches the blood.

The Explanation Given by the Book osi
Phrenology.
Tbey were newl.v niii-rioO and were
calling upon one of tin- friends of the
bride who hud been psirMcularly pleasant upon the occasion of their wedding. The bridegroom, apropos of
nothing, began to talk about phrenology and told how his wife had discovered two very prominent humps on the
*jack of his head. He was proud of
them. So was she, and she passed him
around that the host and hostess might
feel the bumps and know of their existence.  Then she explained:
"My book on phrenology says that
they mean good memory and generosity."
It was evident that she was proud
of the facts, and so was be. But'the
host, being of an inquiring turn* of
mind, wished to satisfy himself, so be
got down a phrenological work from
one of bis library shelves and after
much labor found the bumps on the
chart Turning to the notes, he read,
seriously at first, then unsteadily. The
bride became suspicious, but she was
game and said:
"Read it out loud. Please do!" And
the ho I read:
"These bumps nre most frequently
found on cats and monkeys."
Other topics consumed the remainder of the visit, which was brief.—

THE CABINET  LEAK.
Daniel Webster Was Not Long In Discovering Its Source.
Once years ago. when Daniel Webster was secretary of state, there was
an important foreign matter up for discussion before the cabinet, aDd the utmost secrecy was-of course maintained, but the whole thing was blazoned
about in a few hours after the cabinet
meeting. So the president hastily sent
for his cabinet to talk over this leak.
Each man had a different idea of it
Finally Mr. Webster arose, saying,
"You, gentlemen, go on with your discussion, and I'll be back in a minute."
In a few minutes he returned and repeated every word that had been spoken In the room in his absence. He
explained that If by standing close to
the door outside the cabinet room you
held your ear to it you could not distinguish one Intelligible word, but If
moving back frbmithe door and a little
to one side upon a certain spot in the
carpet you kept an attentive ear every word could be plainly beard as
though whispered. Some enterprising
eavesdropper bad been experimenting
with the door and bad found that
upon that exact spot there was some
acoustic property of the door or room
that conveyed the sound in perfect entirety.
"Going—Going"—
The auctioneer had auctioneered for
the last time, for he was very ill and
lay now almost at death's door.
' Beside bis bed stood the doctor and
the auctioneer's wife, anxiously watching each symptom, each movement,
each respiration.
"Doctor," hoarsely whispered the
hammer wielder's wife, "what is hia
pulse now?'
The doctor raised the patient's wrist
"His pulse," he answered, "Is now)
going at 104."
The auctioneer sat up excitedly la
bed.
"Going at 104!" he cried feebly. "Go-
ing at 104! Who'll make It 105? Do I
hear 105 for a pulse that has been running steadily for forty-seven years and
never once stopped? Will you bid 1061
Who'll make It 105?"
But no one made It 105.. And a min*
ute later the auctioneer was going—go*
ing—gonel—Exchange.

Elephant Loose in Theatre.
A baby elephant which has been appearing at the Orpheum Theatre, Vancouver, broke loose from where he was
fastened at the back of the stage, and
started in to enjoyed himself. He lumbered around in the dark and upset several-
pieces of scenery. He put his tusk through
a pail and then trod it flat, after which he
demolished heavy plate glass mirror used
in one of the acts, cleared a table of some
statues, smashed a few chairs, tore down
curtains, and finally arrived on the stage.
Here he seized a broom in his trunk, and
set to work to beat the music out of a
piano for all he was worth. He was
eventually secured, but not before he had
done considerable damage.
Partner and Hie Hogs.
A hog deal that furnishes another angle
to the high cost of living discussion has
just taken place at Salem, N. J. A farmer
killed two hogs and a Salem butcher
agreed to buy them, the price being satisfactory. The farmer said he would like
to have the hams and* shoulders, and
again the butcher agreed. After the farmer
put the hams and shoulders on his wagon
he remarked, "Well, what's the balance
coming to me ? " The butcher figured a
moment and replied: "The is nothing
coming to you. Ypu owe me $2.85." And
he was obliged to pay it. The butcher's
figures were correct—the farmer's were
correct. The butcher bought the entire
hog at wholesale price, and the farmer
was charged at retail price for the hams
and shoulders—although that was not understood when he made the bargain.
Sir E. Shackleton Would Explore
Northwest.
A strong inclination to settle in Canada
and engage in exploration of the great
stretches of land in the North and Northwest possesses Sir Ernest H. Shackleton,
the famous explorer of the Antarctic, who
is at present in Toronto. His idea is to
organize a corps of trained mineralogists
and prospectors, men who are accustomed
to rough work, but at the same time experienced in scientific exploration, to cany
on a series of rapid surveys. In these they
would discover the real value of the different regions of the Dominion which are
still scarcely scratched, and make reports
of the minerals, forests, and places suitable
for townsite*, the information being reliable
and a safe guide for the public.
Bulldog and Horse Fight.
At Seattle the other'day for fully fifteen
minutes a vicious bulldog and a horse
attached to an express wagon fought a
desperate battle, the fight coming to an
end when the horse gripped the bulldog
by the back of the neck and threw him
high into the air. Without the least provocation the dog attacked the horse, setting
his. teeth firmly in the latter's shoulder.
The horse succeed in shaking off the bulldog, which time and,again made fierce
lunges at it. The horse kicked, pawed,
and even bit the enemy. Once tbo often
the bulldog leaped at the horse's head, and
this time was caught by the neck and
hustled high into the air. That took all the
fight out of him and he quitted. A warrant has been issued against the owner of
the dog for permitting a vicious animal to
run at ".large.
Canada's Trade Reaches Record
Fiflure.
Canada's total trade for the fiscal year
ending March 31st reached the record
figure of $677,142,189. This is an increase
of $117,506,238, more than twenty per cent.,
as compared with the preceding twelve
months. It is an increase of $26,000,000
compared with the previous period of
1907-8. - At present the monthly increases
over the corresponding months of last year
are running over $10,000,000 per month,
and indications point to a total trade of
about $800,000,000 for the current fiscal
year.
Secere Storms in the Middle West.
In the most disastrous and far-reaching
storm experienced in a generation, says a
report from Chicago, damage to budding
crops and fruits and vegetables amounting
to more than thirty million dollars has been
wrought in the middle west. The Michigan fruit belt, the backbone of the fruit
country, is described as almost wholly
wiped out. The frost in Illinois and Iowa
has not only killed buds, flowers, and fruit,
but also threatens to ruin oats. Experts
estimate the losses in ten states as follows:
Illinois, $6,000,000; Iowa, $10,000,00;
Indiana, $2,000,000; Michigan, $4,000,000;
Wisconsin, $2,000,000; Kansas, $1,000,000;
Kentucky, $1,000,000; Missouri, $2,000,000;
Ohio, $500,000; Nebraska, $1,500,000.
Vancouoer's Horse Shot©.
Vancouver's third horse show closed

1100, which was more than 300 over last
year, and horses were in attendance from
Woodlands, California, on the south;
Brandon on the east in Canada, and Lee's
Station, Montana, in the States.

THE CAT AND THE BABY.
A Medioal Opinion as to the Tradition
of a Feline Danger.
Several physicians have Investigated
the ancient story tbat cats suck tbe
breatb of babies, and Dr. J. Bice Gibbs
declares tbat tbe theory Is ridiculous.
Cats occasionally kill children, be declares, bat tbey do It in a different
fashion.
"It bas been stated tbat a cat's nostrils are so formed as to make a perfect juncture witb tbe nose of a baby,"
said Dr. Gibbs, "and tbat a little pressure would pusb tbem upward aud
make them a perfect fit Then tbe
cat's chin would rest over and below
tbe baby's mouth, preventing it from
opening to relieve tbe strangulation
while tbe cat sucked its breatb. Tbat
is all rot. The manner in wbicb little children are killed by cats is this:
A cat looking for a warm place to
curl up and sleep lies down upon tbe
chest of a little child, and, being quite
heavy-many cats are ai heavy as
little babies—simply crushes the breatb
out of the child's lungs, and strangulation takes place, but not through
sucking of tbe child's breath.
"The Idea tbat only black cats kill
little babies is equally ridiculous. It
is simply because black cats are considered uu lucky, in former times tbe
black cat was considered tbe very
genius of witchcraft In those days
when a baby died tbe blame was often
fixed upon some bag wbo, tbe judges
Baid, had sent a black cat to suck the
baby's breatb. And often bag and cat
suffered death at tbe stake.
"Evil omen Is still.tbe cry in many
parts of tbe world whenever a black
cat approaches a cradle. Many persons are so superstitious tbat tbe appearance of a black cat In a sick room
is considered equivalent to an announcement of approaching deatb.
What could be more absurd?
"Mothers need uot be afraid of cats,
black, white or green, sucking their
babies' breatb and murdering tbem.
It is time tbat tbls popular fallacy
should be exploded." — New _ork
World.
THE BASEBALL UMPIRE.
Very Different From the Fight Referee
or the Race Judge.
Good umpires are rare. In tbe whole
country there are not more than ten
first rate ones. Tbe combination of
tbe keen eye, nimble brain and cold
nerve is uot a common one.
The umpire is tbe chain lightning of
baseball. His decisions are rendered
In tbe fifth part of a second. He renders them knowing that be must stand
by tbem afterward, no matter what
happens. Every man inside tbe fence,
whether blinded -by prejudice or loyalty to the home team, sees tbe same
things and therefore feels tbat be has
a right to his own opinion, but the
umpire is the one man wbo is paid to
know wbat be sees.
The prizefight referee sometimes bas
to decide which boxer won a hard battle. He has had time in wbicb to review tbe situation. Tbe wbole moving
picture of tbe fight stretches backward
In his memory. Should the choice
prove a difficult one there is always
the comfortable middle ground-the
draw decision, in which neither man
wins or loses. Tbe baseball umpire
can render no draw decisions. Tbe
man is safe or he Is out
When two race horses come nodding
down to tbe wire and two noses, flash
by tbe post'so close together that a
finger breadth means thousands of dollars to tbe backers, the race track
judge may fall back on tbe dead beat.
Tlw baseball umpire has no dead heats.
Watching foot and ball, be must know
which one was first He can confer
witb no one. Right or.wrong, the
judgment must be made in tbe twinkling of an eye.-d EL Van Loan in
Munsey's Magazine.
The Piano Virtuoso's Hands.
Contrary to popular belief, tbe piano
virtuoso as a rule bas extremely unattractive hands. "Tbe artistic band"
Is a phrase peculiar to tbe hysterical
young woman wbo haunts musical recitals, but in reality tbe band of tbe
pianist is not at all artistic or beautiful when judged by tbe usual stand*
ards of tbe artist, tbe painter or tbe
sculptor.

Had,Had Enough
A boy twelve years of age, with an air
of melancholy resignation, went to his
teacher and handed in the following note
from his mother before taking his seat:
" Dear sir,—Please excuse James for not
being present yesterday.
". He played truant, but you needn't whip
him for it, as the boy he played truant with
and him fell out, and he licked James
and a man he threw stones at caught him
and licked him; and the driver of a cart
they hung on to licked him ; and the owner of a cat they stoned licked him. I licked
him when he came home, after which his
father licked him; and I had to give him
another for being impudent to me for tell-
ing his father, So you need not lick him
until next time.
" He thinks he will attend regular in future."     IThe Christian Advocate.
A Hero
Tommy's mother had made him a pres
entofa toy shovel and sent him out on to the
sands to play with his baby brother. "Take
care of baby now, Tommy, and don't let
anything hurt him," was Mamma's parting
injunction.
Presently scream* of anguish from baby
sent the distracted parent flying to the sands.
"For goodness' sake, Tommy, what has
happened to the baby ?"said she, trying to
soothe the wailing infant.
"There was a naughty fly biting him on
top of his head, and I killed it with the
shovel," was the proud reply.
The manifold delights of the days with
the rod and line, the season for which is
now so near at hand, finds some able op.
ponents in the April number of Rod and
Gun in Canada, published by W. J. Taylor,
Woodstock Ont. The immense advantages
of Algonquin Park for fishing vacations
and descriptions of some of its many wonderful lakes, are given prominence in a
beautifully illustrated article, the writer
having had the privilege of accompanying
the hardy rangers on some of their rounds.
The veteran angler, Mr. C. W. Young, gives
an account of some new waters along the
line of the new Transcontinental in Northern Quebec and many a fisherman will
hope that during the coming summer he
may possibly repeat Mr. Young's delightful experiences. The wanderings of a
fishing party lost in the Rockies are well
told by Mr. E. M. Allworth, the story illustrating the difference between fishing in
the north and in the west. Mr. Allworth
and his party had to walk home from the
mountains to their prairie town. A defence of the catfish will be read with interest. Two good bear stories, one of duck
hunting, a tale of a good dog and game
bird hunting by a motor car add variety
and give increased interest to an excellent
number. Not merely no fisherman but no
sportsman should be without its bright,
imformative companionship.
At the Opera House
Juvenile Bostonians
The "Lethbridge Herald " says that the
large audience which attended the Majestic
Theatre last evening were given a great
treat by those well known versatile young
players, the Juvenile Bostonians. They
went there expecting something goood, but
never expected anything quite so delightful as the musical comedy, " The Ransom
as put on by the Bostonians turned out to
be. The musical numbers, the dancing,
and the acting were all splendid, and the
audience was charmed. Babe Mason as
White Pete: Lois Mason as Clarisse Hamilton : little Doris Canfield as Sir Reggie
Stark, and in fact the whole caste, played
their parts with .. cleverness and realism
wonderful in ones so young. The Juvenile
Bostonians have always held a warm place
in the hearts of Lethbridge people, and
last night they materially added to the affection with which they are regarded.
Grace Cameron
It is seldom that the management of the
Kelowna Opera House places their personal
stamp of approval upon an approaching
attraction and in the past when the person
al guarantee of the local management haa
been placed prior to the appearance of an
approaching Theatrical event, the merits
of the attraction itself have invariably sustained the management's recommendation.
We have never hithertofore made special mention of an approaching theatrical
event with greater assurance and confidence than in this instance when it is our
pleasure to announce the forthcoming engagement in this city of the dainty singer
and commedienne, Grace Cameron and a
superb acting company in C, Herbert Kerr's
latest four act comedy, " Nancy" which
occurs on Wednesday next. We take great
pleasure in adding our guarantee to that of
Mr. Kerr's  that  both   the  company  and
scenic environments he sends here will be
of the highest order. During the action of
C. H. Kerr's highly diverting comedy,
"Nancy," which will be given at the Opera
House, on Wednesday, May llth, Grace
Cameron will sing many high-class selections, as well as several of a catchy order.

A Fine Point In Equity That Nevler
Was Decided.
••An old time story of the flne= points
of law and equity wbicb arose in c^r-
tying out an amicable contract;is told
in the Philadelphia Record.. There
were four brothers who had inherited
a storage warehouse from their father^
He haddlTlded tbe property equally
among them.
Atnong the appurtenances was-a ckt
■^a fine animal, excellent fpr mousing
Tbis, *too, was divided, the eldest
'brother owning tbe right front quarter, the second brother tbe left front
quarter and the younger'brothers the
'two bind quarters.
Now, unfortunately, the cat to oft*
'Of its nocturnal prowls injured tbe
■right   front   paw,   and   the   eldest
brother attend «d to, that portion of bis
property by binding tbe injared member witb a greased rag.
. 'fl?be cat, tbankful for this relief to
■itts- sufferings, went to sleep contentedly1 before the Are, but In the midst
of its slumbers a falling coal ignited
the' rag, and the animal, bowling witb
agony'dashed through the warehouse
and,.coming in contact with some com-
, bustibles, set the building on fire.
When the loss came to'be figured
oat the three younger brothers wished
to throw it ail upon tbe eldest on to*
ground that bad be not tied up hie
part of the cat witb the Inflammabl*
rag'the building would not hare been
destroyed.   '
. fie; on the contrary, contended that!
had the c*t only been possessed of ths
t-otit right paw—bis prol^erty-i-tt
wojald bare stood sUll and burned to
death. It was the tiree cthsr ps«rS
fbat 'daused tbe damage.
The brothers argued the case until
they died, but'tbey neter retched a&

PENTICTON.
Supt. Kilpatrick, of the C. P. R.,
met the-Penticton council last week
with plans for'new wharf and'tracks
which Would cost when finished
about $60,000, sixteen of which the
company intended   spending this
summer, if they could get a grant
of a certain part of the foreshore.
The council wished to know if the
C. P. R. and" the Kettle Valley line,
which would be in shortly,  were
prepared to pooltheir interests, or
whether the   Kettle   Valley   line
would make similar demands.   If
not the council felt sure that the
people would turn the proposition
down.
The S. O. Canning Co. have decided not to operate their cannery

The Magic Mirror
1 went one night with my high-priced
thirst to loaf in the booze bazaar.
And asl sampled the old red dope I leaned on the handsome bar.
My purse was full of the old long groen,
and my rainment was smooth and new,
And 1 looked as slick at a cabbage rote
that's kissed by the nice wet dew.
Behind the bottles a mirror stood, at Urge
as your parlor floor,
And 1 looked and looked in the shining
glass, and wondered, and looked some
more.
My own reflection did not appear, but
there where it should have been, I saw,
The form of a cringing bum all crumpled
and soaked with gin.
His nose was red his eyes were dim.
Unshorn was his swollen face, and I thought
it queer
Such a seedy "bo" would come to so
smooth a place.
I turned around for a better look at the
effigy of despair.
And nearly fell in a little heap for the effigy wasn't there!
The barkeep laughed. "It's the Magic
Glass," he said, with a careless yawn ;
"It shows a man how he is apt to look years
hence when his roll is gone."

Two Bad Habits.
The following is from an address by Mr.
Andrew Carnegie delivered an the opening
of a gymnasium at St. Andrew's University:—
"There are two such habits very common
among the young men of today. The first
! and most serious was the use of alcoholics.
i A dangerous habit very likely to cause
: grevious results all agreed; that it should
I cause no beneficial results all agreed. It
> was therefore the part of wisdom to abstain
, from the habit that might work evil and
| could do no good. That no ill effects were
i visible from indulgence during the vigorous
j period of youth rendered the danger of
serious eonsequencet in after life still greater than if the ill effects were visible from
the beginning. They are playing with an
insiduous foe. Viewing them as young
steeds training for the race of life he knew
of no one habit so likely to defeat them in the
contest at the drinking of alcoholic liquors.
That taken in excess they destroyed the
character of men and rendered them use.
less members of society they all knew.
The line between excess and sufficiency
was so narrow that it was very seldom the
drinker knew and observed it Better be
on the safe side. Why run into danger?
A. no possible good could result from indulgence no risk should be incurred.
Believe him, in the stern game of life they
had all to play, they could afford to throw
no advantages away. He did not wish
to preach to them.' There was no sin in
drinking a glass of wine, and, late in life,
they might be ordered to* indulge to that
extent. He put the case to them simply
as a matter of policy. There was one habit, and that the greatest danger in front of
them against which, they could protect
themselves completely in the campaign of
life. It was good sense for .them to do to.
" Drunkenness was the great rock ahead
in the career of every young man. It was
far more important that he insure himself
against it than against death. A drink policy was worth ten life policies in their
case.   Abstain and evade the danger."
~~ TA156HTTHE MOOD.
YtM Yneldtot That Helped Ver* With
Nto "Miserere."
Man of seatas are confessedly 'creatures of mood. Grief and adversity
hare often been a real help to tbem
ratter than a hindrance. Poe, It is
said, produced "Tlie Raven" while sitting at the b-fislde of bis sleeping but
flying w_3e. Many simitar instances
■right be cited, but an anecdote of
Terdi, toU by Carlo CeecareHi, vM
■■flee. '
Ob om occasion when VeHU w engaged oo Ms well known opera, UH
TroratoBe," he stopped short at tbe
passage of the "Miserere," being at a
low to combine notes of sufficient sad-
mm and pathos to express the grist
tf the prisoner, Manrlco.
Sitting at his piano iu the deep sOH-
oess of the winter night, his Imagination wandered back to the stormy days
of his youth, endeavoring to extract
from the past a plaint, a groan, like
those which escaped from his breast
when he saw himself forsaken by tfca
world.   All ln rain!
One day at Milan be was uaexpact-
edly called to the bedside of a dying
friend, oae of the few who had remained faithful to him io adversity
and prosperity. Verdi at tbe sight of
his dying friend felt a lump rise ia bis
throat. He wanted to weep, but so Intense was his grief that not a tear
flowed to the relief of his anguish.
In an adjoining room stood a piano.
Verdi, under one of those sudden Impulses to which men of genius ar»
sometimes subject, sat down at the Instrument and there and then improvised the sublime "Miserere" of the
"Trovatore." The musician had given
utterance to his grief.

Telegraph Wire Nccklaoee and laawia-
tors as Earrings.
The aesthetic and decorative uses to
which barbarians will turn objects
which to civilized races are things of
the humblest utility ure amusingly illustrated by this "fashion note" from
West Africa taken from an Italian
newspaper: ,
For some time tbe officials of the
German colony in Southwest Africa
noticed tbat the telegraph wires and
other accessories of the electrical plant
disappeared as by inagks Immediately
after they bad been put up. .The most
diligent inquiries remained fruitless.
From other parts of the German possessions came reports of strange predilections for articles of German commerce, as, for example, rubber heels,
garters, buckles, and so forth, things
which the natives of thosa countries do
not generally use.      0
The governor of the colony gave an
entertainment one year in honor of
the emperor's birthday and invited the
chiefs of the different tribes to it.
What was bis surprise wben he saw
these native gentlemen appear with
his stolen telegraph wires twisted
round their illustrious necks. The
higher the dignity the more rings of
tbe wire were round the neck.
Inquiries were soon started la tbe
outlying villages, and it came to light
tbat the white china insulators of tbe
telegraph poles had become earrings.
A young lady of the highest distinction in native society wore a rubber
heel banging from her nose, and a
young man wbo was a well known
dandy wore dangling from his ears a
pair of beautiful pink silk garters.

Sir Evelyn Wood,' who is very deaf,

said to me, "Are you fond of music?"
I answered, "Yes." "Do you play
anything?" 1 said. "No." "Well," be
went on, "I am so fond of it that,
would you believe It, I began to practice scales at twenty-four. But oae day
my sister came up and put her band
on my shoulder and said, 'My dear
boy, you had better give tbat up,' and
so I did." Re also told me that be

The Palling Branch!
In tbe grounds of Dalhousie castle,
Scotland, Is said to be a famous example of the sympathy of the vegetable world with humnn death. It wns
anciently believed ln the neighborhood
thnt a branch alwayB fell from this
oak wben a member of the family died.
Apparently the fall of the original tree
early in the eighteenth century did not
break the sympathy, for a new one
sprang from the old root, and it is
upon record that as lately as 1874 an
old forester, seeing a branch fall from
tbis on a still day. cried. "Tbe laird's
deed noo!" News of the eleventh Earl
of DnlhoiiRle's death soon followed.

result that the collar and ticket were

The Orchard Cifcg Record.
it may be your privilege to own a Fruit Farm in the
famous "Dry Valley" district. So many Kelowna people
and others all over the country have been asking when
we should be ready to put this beautiful property on the
market, that we have decided to cut up about three
hundred acres of the pic£ of the Valley into small Fruit
Farms, which we shall offer for sale about the end of this
wee£, when the maps can be seen at our office. These
lots all lie within a mile of the City limits, and command
a magnificent view of the La£e, town and surrounding
country. No finer spot could be chosen for a
SUBURBAN HOME, and no more fertile soil for an
orchard.
The Water System Now Being Installed.
Our Company having set to wor^ early in the year
to put the water on this land, have already opened two
miles of the main canal, and with the large forces at
present at wor£, fully expect to have the ditch complete
to the City limits by the end of this year, so that purchasers of the new sub-division are assured of water for next
season.
Tlie source of supply is our large storage dam at the
headwaters of Mill Cree£, and the water is to be conveyed across Mill Valley in a 32 inch riyited &eel pipe, and
distributed over the land by concrete lined ditches and
cement pipe. A natural storage basin sufficient to hold
about 500 acre feet of water situated at the upper end of
the Valley will be used for a domestic supply.
The waste, overflow and seepage will be ta^en Care
of by laying a cement tile drain through the lowest part
of the Valley.
What's In a Name ?
Not much in some cases, but when choosing a new name
for Dry Valley it means everything. Mothers often have
difficulty in deciding on a suitable name for a promising
baby boy. They can think of none that will cover all his
good points. The officers of the Central Okanagan
Lands, Limited, aie in just the same predicament in
choosing a more suitable name for Dry Valley, and to
overcome this difficulty they have decided to offer a
Cash Prize of $100.00
for what in their opinion is the most appropriate name
suggested for this lovely district. Each competitor is
allowed to send in not more than five names. The only
condition attached being that he must have visited the
valley within two months previous to the 1.2th inst. at
noon, when the competition closes.    ,
No officers of the Company are allowed to compete.

for Alaska, Mr. Hanson for Sweden.
swine, the packing and marking, is fully
described. Co-operative feed buying,
which involves the purchgse of over six
thousand million pounds of grain, oil cake
etc., p year, is fully dealt with.
A valuable feature of the report is the
attention given to the methods followed in
countries for maintaining harmony between
packers and farmers, and the securing of a
uniform supply of pigs. Co-operation, not
only between farmers, but between packers and farmers, is credited with excellent
results. This especially true in England in
bacon curing districts.
After dealing with the various phases of
of production in the different countries, a
chapter is devoted to the English bacon
trade and another to lessons for Canadian
farmers and packers. The report is com'
prehensive and practical, and therefore of
value to every swine raiser in Canada.

We congratulate Mr. Calder for
business nerve and amacumen in
introducing the most unique and
gratest bargoin selling event ever
attempted on the lake.
It's very unusual for a merchant to reduce prices, during what
should be a profit making season
But Mr. Calder realizing that money is scarce and that the people
need to make their money go a
good deal further than usual, is
taking time by the forelock, and is
giving his entire stock over to the
Everly Sales Co. Sale specialist of
of Vancouver and Calgary, to
reduce to smallest proportions and
to give the people the time of their
lives delving into such a high class
stock of womens', mens' and child
rens' goods at prices that simply
astound.
We advise towns people to shop
early Saturday morning the opening day as the crowds will rush in
from all over the lake and the
store will be crowed far beyond
its capacity every moment of the
day. Look for the sign of the

SOMETHING F3Ci„ .'ii.THI.ia.
Things Thrown Out as Worthless Fur-
nish a Living to Hundreds. - '
There ar.> hundreds of families that
live year r». arid yw.r out on things
that have been thrown away. The rag
picker and the old clothes man are
familiar to all housewives. These
men, however, do not confine their
business to articles that have been
cast away as useless. They are really
merchants in a small way. But, apart
from the collector oi clothes and rags,
there are scores who make tidy sums
from articles that are absolutely
thrown away—from things to which
even the most frugal oi persons attach no intrinsic value.
Boys and even men pick up cigar
and cigarette butts and there are
many families who make a living and
educate their children from these
butts. Modern science has found
other uses for tobacco besides the
pleasure of smoking. In the iorm of
sprays and washes it annually saves
the farmers of tbe country' hundreds
of thousands of dollars tnat would be
lost but for the industry oi tlie "snipe"
hunters. The cigar i»)iu cigarette ends
that are gathered in tn_ streets of
large cities run up into uw: tnousands
every day.
Taken home the snip__ :.re emptied
on a big table and tae work oi sorting commences. Cigars nre pkced in
one heap, cigarettes in another. The
wrappers are tak::ti oti and the tobacco in each pile is pounded into dust
as nearly as possible. The amount in
the heaps may run from 10 to 20
pounds, and far in excess of that on
some days. The cigar dust is put into
packages of one pound eacn, while
the cigarette tobacco is placea in larger ones. This is bjcuuse the ciga_s ar-..
more valuable from the viewpoint of
the agricultural expert.
The tobacco is sold to any firm that
deals in insecticides, sprays and
washes for use on th_ fa:m. According to agricultural students tobacco is
the most effective vermiiuge known
to them. The spray is not a whit injurious to plant life, and is used with
impunity on the most celicate of orchids and the most fragile flowers
without ill effects.. A strong solution
of the juice, with its strengtn of nicotine, will destroy larger insects, such
as ants, cockroaches and potato bugs.
There are people who make money
by gathering cuewed gum that has
been thrown a\vay. There is a certain
kind of shellac used for the outside
of front stores that is greatly improved in gloss and adhesiveness when-
gum is melted and poured into it.
Unchewed gum woulu be useless, as
it contains sugar and other things
that are hard and gritty. The grit
wouid be absolutely fatal to the polish
and smoothness oi the shellac. It is
the smoothness and clarity brought
about by the constant chewing that
makes it of value. So the gum picker
gathers the lump3 from the streets and
gutters, getting his supply chiefly near
school houses, department stores and,
cigar shops.
Bottles and cans thrown out have
their value. Bottles are valuable for
use in their original form'. They are'
never melted again. Cans and tins of
all varieties are remelted and made'
into roofing tin. Tin is a valuable
.metal and brings good prices. In the,
'process of melting the tin a large
quantity of lead that has been used
in soldering the can together is extracted and this, too, is sold. Even
the paper thrown away is valuable.

that shines as a composer, though un.

delusion that such is the case. On one
