Meeting of City Council
The City Water and the Penticton Libel - The St. Paul's St.
Petition   -  License By-law Passed
A meeting of the city council
was held on Monday with a full
attendance of aldermen.
The minutes of the last meeting
were read and confirmed.
The following accounts were referred to the finance committee, to
be paid if found correct:

Aid. Stirling mentioned that it
would be well for the^variourcommittees to get in their estimates in
order that the finance committee
might get to work ori the general
estimates for the year. :
Aid. Stirling also pointed out that
a great many people were keeping
their water taps open almost continually sprinkling lawns,etc., and
that the result was a feduction pf
pressure in the mains, which rnlght,
be serious in , caseT^gf y^fire.^^He
"tKouglit a-by-law should oc mtnj-
c(uced to compel people tb shut off
the water in case of fire.
Aid. Leckie said that there were
several stop-cocks, where the water
could be cut off a whole district in
a case of that sort.
These, however, it was shown
would not be any use in case of a
fire occurring at the end of a pipe
Mayor Sutherland asked if the
council wished to take any action
■ with respect to the statements
which appeared in the " Penticton
Press," with reference to the city's
water supply.. A number of absolutely untrue and misleading remarks had been made at a public
meeting in Penticton, as to the
purity of the city's water supply.
Aid. Cox thought something
should certainly be done, as the
reports concerning the water were
likely to do a great deal of harm.
Aid. Jones said that the city clerk
should be instructed to write to the
Penticton council, pointing out the
damaging nature of the reports and
showing them7 they were, entirely
without foundation. The fact that
the statements had been made by
their chief magistrate in' a public
meeting was likely to convey an
'erroneous impression. Attention
might be drawn to the fact that
there has never been a case of
typhoid directly traceable to the
water supply.
The following motion was proposed by Aid. Leckie and seconded
by Aid..Jones:
" That the clerk be instructed to
write to the Penticton council drawing attention to the unwarranted
statements recently made by the
Reeve of their municipality at a
public meeting, anent the water
supply of this city, and asking them
as a body, after investigation as to
the facts to take such action as
courtesy and their good judgement
may dictate, to correct the damaging effects of the statements com-
• plained of."
Mayor Sutherland, drew attention
to the fact that it would be necessary to be looking over the assessment roll with respect to the two
wards. The south ward had increased much more in the past year
or two in proportion than
north ward, and a readjustment
probably be necessary this year. As
all that would take some time to
figure out, the matter had better be
taken in hand at once.
The city clerk, Mr. G. H. Dunn,
informed the council that it would
be necessary for him  to  engage
temporary aasistment, as the work
just at present was becoming more
than he could handle.
Mayor Sutherland agreed that
the work had increased very much
of late. The business connected
with the scavenging department
had been throw on to the city
clerk, and the increase pf the water works took up a great deal of
extra time.
Mr. Dunn's suggestion of engaging a boy to assist him was readily
agreed to, and the following motion
was passed,—"That Mr. Duton be
authorized to employ P. Gorman
as a tempory assistant." . -
Aid. Cox asked, if the council
were doing anything in respect to
the petition from Mr. Middleton
and others to have St. Paul street
extended through to Bernard avenue.
Mayor Sutherland replied that a
solicitor's report had been submitted on the matter, and it was not
quite clear that the city . had any
right to expropriate land for .such a
purpose. Mr. Weddell refused to
make any arrangements in the
matter. He had written to a firm
of lawyers, at the coast, and had
been given the opinion that .unless
the city actually needed the land
they could not expropriate. 7 If the
street were actually needed for the
city then such a course would; be
in order.
.'Aid. Harvey thought thatwhen a
piece qfvland likedthe.^subdivision
m question had no proper outlet,
there was need for a street.
Aid. Jones said that there was
another aspect to it. - The street
was already extended;as far as Mr.
Weddell's property, and the owners
of the lots wished to ( have it cut
through to the main street. If this
were not done it >^ould be an obstacle to development in the district for years to come, Buildings
would go up all around it, and we
should have a bare field practically
in the middle of the city.
Aid. Harvey thought the matter
should be definitely settled as the
question would be continually
cropping up. There were other
streets which would have to be
continued some time or other, and
the city should know just what
could be done.
Mayor Sutherland thought that
they had better notify the petitioners that if they could arrange with
Mr. Weddell the city would go
This was agreed to, Aid. Stirling
remarking that he did not think the
street would be of so much benefit
to the city that they should look
for a law suit over it.
The license by-law 76 was read
a second and a third time.
The following motion was passed.
"That the mayor and treasurer
be authorized to borrow from the
Bank of Montreal the sum of three,
thousand,dollars, the amount due
on water works account."
. Aid. Jones asked what extensions
it was intended to make in the
water works.
Aid. Leckie said there were a
great many applications from all
parts of the town.
In reply to a question from Aid.
Jones as tb whether'a public meeting would be held before the bylaw to raise the extra $5000 was
voted on, Aid Leckie said that a
meeting could be held if it were
necessary and the people wished
it.    -
Aid.' Jones said that there were
some people who were asking what
was going to be done in the way
of extensions, and who would like
an assurance that more hydrants
would be placed in various parts of
the town for better fire protection.
Aid. Leckie said it was the intention to place hydrants at various
points. With the extra money they
should be able to give anybody
the water who wanted it. There
were many people who wished to
have it and were willing to pay for
it, and it was a shame if they could
not get it.   He thought it would be
necessary in cases where people
were having the water solely for
lawn sprinkling to make a charge
for connecting. If such people
were only going to use the water
for a month or two months it
would not pay the city to put it in
without charge.
It was decided to hold another
meeting on the following day in
order to give the License by-law
No. 76 a third reading.
The meeting then adjourned.
A short session was held on
Tuesday morning, Mayor Sutherland, Aid. Stirling, Jones and
Leckie being present.
The only business conducted
was in respect to By-law No. 76,
which was reconsidered and finally
The meeting then adjourned until Monday, July 4, at 10 a.m.

Closing Ceremonies
at the Public School
There, was a large gathering of
parents'and friends at the public
school last Friday to witness the
closing examinations of the term.
After recess visitors, scholars,
and teachers gathered in the principal's room, where • a pleasant
cerembriy took place, in the shape
of .presentations to Miss Messenger
and MissV Wade who are leaving
with the close of the term. The
gifts had been subscribed for Joy
the scholars,'and the presentation
?. as on their behalf made by the
Mayor, Mr. D. W. Sutherland,
Miss Messenger, receiving a handsome volume of Browning?s works'
from the girls, and a box of handkerchiefs from the boys. Miss
Wade's gift/from her scholars was
a beautiful polished oak butter dish
and a silver sugar spoon.
In making the presentation .the
mayor said the gifts would be valued by recipients as gifts qf love
and respect from the scholars who
had- been, under their charge.
Addressing the scholars he emphasized the importance of education in their future careers. The
ignorant and uneducated had to do
the. drudgery and spade work of
daily life, but the knowledge they
were acquiring at school, if rightly
used, might be the means of lifting
them to a higher sphere bf action.
Mr. Thos Lawson was the next
speaker, and expressed his regret
as chairman of the School trustees,
that so many of the teaching staff
who had rendered excellent service
during the past year were leaving.
Rev. A. W. K. Herdman was then
called, and addressed the scholars
at some length. A little knowledge
was a dangerous thing, he said,
and he advised his young hearers
to drink deeply of the .fountain of
learning. , He reminded them that
schools days would soon be over
and once gong they would never
return. They should stay at school
as lpng as they could and work
hard while thev were there. He
referred to his own school days
and the great advance in the
.hods of teaching during the
quarter of a century.
Mrs J. B. Whitehead,  who
present compared   favorably
Canadian method of teaching with
that followed in the Old Country.
The school breaks up today at
noon. •■''■■
We understand that the scholars
of Miss Cameron's room in the Kel-
lar Block have presented her with
a volume of Sir Walter Scott's poetry and also a manicure set, as she
is also leaving at the end of

Miss Tudor who has been organist at St Michael's church for the
past three months, is leaving for
England on Saturday next. Mi*.
Tollit has been appointed to fill the
vacancy. Mr. Tollit has been organist for some time past at a
church in Winnipeg.
Miss Wade was the recipient of
a bridal shower at the house of
Mrs. N. D. McTavish last Saturday
Kelowna's first county court was
held last Friday^ June 24th, his
honor Judge Swanson presiding.
There were two cases down for
trial, and the court, held in Rowcliffe's Hall, attracted quite a large
gathering of people.
The judge took his place punctually at 10 o'clock, and the business of the day commenced with
out any preliminaries. After
luncheon, however, the mayor, Mr.
D. W. Sutherland, was present, and
in a brief speech welcomed the
judge to Kelowna. He assured his
honor that the citizens fully appreciated the fact that when little
differences did arise they could be
settled right here in Kelowna, and
that delay and inconvenience was
thus avoided, and the ends of
justice could be
The learned judge, in his reply
said in view of the rapid growth of
the city of late years, it was only
fitting that, a county court should
be held here. He mentioned that
it was his intention to see the
Attorney-General.as to the establishing of a Deputy Court Registry
in Kelowna. By holding the county
court here the work could be more
expeditiously carried out The
time was not far di tant when the
city would haye a proper and convenient court house, and all the
machinery j for the transition of
judicial business.
The first-case to be called was
that of Parkinson versus Dolsen, in
which^Mrs, Parkinson sued Mry
Roy .Dolsen for $500 damages as
the result of an accident in which
plaintiff's horse, was killed in a
collision with a rig driven by
defendant on Bernard avenue in
January last. Mr. Kerr appeared
for Mrs. Parkinson, and Mr.
Billings of Vernon for Mr. Dolsen.
Mrs. Parkinson was first called
and her version of the accident as
elicited by cross examination was
to the effect that about ten minutes
to six one evening last'January she
was driving into town in company
with: Mr. Ernest Wilkinson. She
was driving her own mare at the
time,, and Was on her own side of
the road.: On coming down
Bernard avenue she had just passed
one rig, when she caught sight on
another one driven by defendant,
coming up from town, and on the
wrong side of the road. She pulled
her horse over to the left in. order
to pass, when for some unexplain-
able reason the defendant turned
over in the same direction. The
result was a collision in which her
mare was fatally injured bv the
shaft of the defendant's rig entering the animal's side. Several
witnesses corroborated.
For the defence Mr. Dolsen said
he was driving home with Mrs.
Dolsen and Mr. Tom Hill and
keeping the centre of the > road.'
The night was fairly dark, and as
they were near Mr. Knowles' house
they heard another rig coming up
behind; as it drew near the
occupants seemed to whip up arid
attempted to] pass on the wrong
side, driving very close to his
wheels. .The rattle ot the rig and
the shouting of the occupants as
they drew abreast bf the defendant,
caused the letters horse to swerve
to the right, the shaft striking Mrs.
Parkinson's horse before he could
regain Control. . He did not turn to
the right as was alleged.
Mr. Tom Hill was called and
bore out defendant's statement as
to the qther rig driving too close.
He had expected every minute
their wheels would clash together.
As the occupants had drawn up
alongside they had shouted, and
defendant's horse had jumped to
one side. Defendant was not to
blame, as he could not have prevented the accident.
Judgment was reserved.
The second case was one in
which "M. DeCaquery sued M.
Fachieux for $300 commission on
a sale of land belonging to the
latter. After a long hearing
case was dismissed.
Regatta Day
at Naramata
Large Crowd Attend Successful

It is expected that about 250 people will mak6 the' trip down the
lake on that occasion.

Glorious weather conditions and
a good programme well carried out
combined to make Naramata's first
regatta of the season a great success
Altogether about 600 people gathered together from all parts of the
The proceedings were opened
by the Hon. Price Ellison in the
absence of Premier McBride who
written expressing his regret at
being unable to attend.
Kelowna was well represented
both amongst the entries and in
the grand stand, a large party taking advatage of the special Aberdeen excursion.
The chief interest of the day of
course centred on the War Cohoe
races, but in these, sad to relate,
Kelowna did not shine. There
were three crews represented in the
senior race for the Robinson cup,
Naramata, Peachland and Kelowna.
Naramata were three men short,
and Kelowna carried at least one
man who was unaccustomed to the
work. Peachland was leading all
the way and finished about a half
length ahead of Kelowna with Naramata some distance behind.   .
In the junior race for Price Ellison medals, the same three towns
were represented, but the result
was even more disastrous for our
local crew. The Kelowna boys
took the inside course nearest the
shore, and in getting around for the
return stretch ran to close in shore
getting into shallow water and some
other difficulties. As a result they
were" away* behind at ihe finish,
which^was another win for Peachland,'with Naramata second.
The Peachland crew was in
splendid form and well earned
their double success.
A feature which did something
to redeem Kelowna's credit on the
water was the fact that all the other
prizes except two or three thirds
and a second for swimming fell to
Kelowna's competitors. '

cup was presented for the fire drill,
which fell to the Okanagan.
J. C. Metcalfe's
Market Report
Advises More Attention to
Packing and Grading
Following is Mr. Metcalfe's fourth
report to the Dept. of Agriculture :
Dear Sir:—
I have the honor to report as
Portage La Prairie, June 9—No
B. C. strawberries arrived this point
to date. Hood River strawberries
here, costing retail at Winnipeg
$4.25 per case. Missouri strawberries also, costing $3.90 per case.
Express rate by C. N. R. and C. P.
R., 60c. per hundred pounds, or
about 18c. per case. Dealers here
claim our strawberries do not arrive
in as good condition, nor do they
hold up as well after arrival, as
Hood. River or Missouri, but prefer as to ^flavour. Idaho cherries
in now, cost dealer in Winnipeg,
$2.00, sell $2.50. Dealers all supplied from Winnipeg. No jobbing
houses here.
Brandon, June 10—At Smith &
Burton, retailers here, I saw some
B. C. strawberries from Mission.
Arrived ■ in good condition, and
fairly,well graded, but baskets not
full enough. Our growers generally
do not fill baskets enough, in comparison with American growers and
shippers. Washington cherries in
here now. Mr. Pauline, manager
McPherson,Fruit Company here,
stated they cost 70c. per ten pound
case, f. o. b. Washington. Were
buying California peaches, f. o. b.
point ; of shipment. 60c; per case,
and expected to buy them before - ,
season was over at 35c. per case
point of shipment. Dealers here
ha\r^iM<^a:r_t_n^i5^^of shlpftienfC't'l
of strawberries direct from growers
at Hammond and Mission, all of
which arrived in pretty good condition, and prefer our strawberries
as to flavor in comparison with the
American berries from Tennessee,
Missouri, Louisiana and even Hood
River, but our i growers do not
grade close enough or fill the baskets so well. A
Regina, June 13—Agent express
company here reported two shipments of strawberries arrived here
frbrn Mission for- McPherson Fruit
Company, and refused by them,
being in poor condition.. Were
sold, by the express company for
charges. ; Twenty-five cases more
came in from Mission on the 1 Ith,
were only in fair condition. Twelve
cases more came in on the 13th
from. Mission. These strawberries
vyere bought by their own agent for
Stockton and Mallinson, some of
them arriving on the Saturday
night, and by Monday were in very
poor condition. Quite a number
or tiiciu hbu to uc uumpea out,-
being no good. .Our growers and
shippers must avoid shipping to
arrive on Saturday night at any of
these points, as they will certainly
suffer loss if more attention is not
given to the time of shipment.
There is no difficulty in figuring
out from the time table the proper
train and day to ship.
Saskatoon, June 15—Have had
three carloads of strawberries in
here this season, from Hood River
and Missouri. B. C. strawberries
are coming in here daily. They do
not arrive here in the best condition,
stock is poorly graded, and baskets
not well filled, of those I saw at the
Northern Fruit Company's warehouse. This stock is bought by
their own agent at Mission. These
berries are brought in all C. P. R.

BY-LAW No. 75.
A By-law for raising the sum of
Five thousand dollars to extend the

President J. J. Warren and chief
engineer McCullugh, of the Kettle
valley railway, met the Penticton
council last week ata special meeting. President Warren stated that
" what the company required was
a right to cross the streets, a flat
rate of taxation for twenty years
and a grant of the foreshore on
Okanagan Lake from Winnipeg St.
to Penticton Creek. In exchange
for this the company would, as required, make Penticton their
divisional point. He expected to
come here to reside himself and
make Penticton the point of
administration, it being central
between Midway and Merritt. The
station and warehouses would be
built at the foot of Main St., and
the company would want the
privilege of closing both Main and
Forbes streets. The reason that so
much water front "was required was
that, with the growth of the town,
the company might have elbow
room. Fifteen acres would be
bought on the meadow for machine
shops and roundhouse and the
company would purchase their right
of-way through the municipality."
Mr Warren submitted plans' showing the route of the railway, which
will cross the river at the south
end and just to the west of Fair-
view Avenue, follow northward
along that avenue past the race
track and then swing into the lake
at the end of Winnipeg St., thence
along the lake shore to Main St.
and Penticton Creek. The main
line to the west after crossing the
river would follow Okanagan Lake
to Trout Creek, where a spur
would probably be run to the lake
at the point. The line would begin
the climb westward at Trout
Creek.—Penticton Press.

A smash occurred last week on
the line near Okanagan Landing,
in which several cars were wreck"
ed and their contents scattered in
all directions. Some cows had
strayed on to the track. - Two of
them had laid down and a south
bound freight train struck them
before they got clear. The engine
and tender mounted the obstruction,
but the box cars behind left the
track and piled up in a terrible
mess. There was, fortunately, no
loss of life, but a large amount of
freight cosigned to various points
on the lake was strewn around
and badly damaged. A wrecking
train was despatched from Revelstoke, but it was some time before
the line could be got clear.

Mr. and Mr=. Murdock arrived
last Friday from Pilot Mound to
spend a few weeks with Mr. Murdochs cousin, Mrs. C. Wilson.
Probably the most enjoyable
picnic ever held at Rutland took
place on Saturday last, when the
Sunday and public schools joined
together in holding their annual
holiday for the children. Some
two hundred children and grownups gathered at the picnic ground.,
near Mission Creek soon after
dinner, and the ice cream and
refreshment . table, run by the
Ladies' Aid, soon commenced
doing a rushing business. The day
was very hot, and soon the cry
arose: " ice cream all done."
Mission Creek was then tapped,
and with the addition of a box of
lemons, kept the ladies busy
quenching the thirsty crowd until
the children's sports were called.
The sports were fairly well contested, and a large number of interesting prizes were distributed,
the funds for which were provided
by a collection taken at supper.
The contents of the baskets, of
which an extra large consignment
had airived, were arranged on
tables, and the children being sat
in circles on the grounds, the good
things were handed around. There
seemed to be a lack of management
in the supper arrangements, however, the ladies being too busy
making money, probably, and
many of the visitors did not get an
opportunity of doing justice to the
excellent fare provided.
After supper an interesting event
took place, in reference to the
coming departure of Miss Fullerton,
the teacher. A well filled purse
had been subscribed by the people
of the district, and was presented
to Miss Fullerton by Di. Baker,
who conveyed to her the appreciation and good wishes of those with
whom she has labored so earnestly
and well during the past year. Mr.
Clark replied with a few words of
thanks on behalf of Miss Fullerton.
A baseball game was then commenced between two picked

to wind up the sports.
Again the bench lands have
proved their worth as the earliest
producing property. Messrs.
Duncan and Wallace delivered on
Wednesday half a car load of the
first nev potatoes for export. This
is the second year in succession
that they have been the first to sell.
Their neighbors, Messrs. Davis &
Mack, will also deliver a load this
week. They are consigned to Mr.
Baker, of the Vernon Produce Co.,
and the price is $35.00 per ton.
This early produce was grown on
the Central Okanagan Land and
Orchard Company's property, and
is from ten days to two weeks
earlier than last year.

Poor John and hia moiley.
John was a citizen of Montreal, whose
residence was in the eastern part of the
city. Some time ago I had occassion to
visit his home, under circumstances which
will never be forgotten. It was a very
striking object lesson in reference to the
liuqor traffic.
The hero of this sketch, poor John, was
au abandomed drunkard, He was able to
earn about ten dollars a week, and could
have earned much more but for his drunkenness. He spent fully half of his earning
in liquor, leaving five dollars to pay for
rent, feul, food, clothing for himself, his
wife and his four children
When I entered that miserable home the
sight that met my eyes was such as could
not easily be described. The children were
all but naked, the mother herself a bundle
of rags, and in all their faces you could
easily read the outlines gaunt famine.
On leaving the house, 1 called on a lady,
who promptly and kindly did all the necessary shoping to supply the mother and
children with what they needed.
It has already been stated that John was
an abandomed .drunkard. We may also
add to this another statement, that John
was an abandomed brute. In about a
week after the good lady had made her
purchases and clothed the household.John
got hold of the little dresses, jackets, etc.,
and bore them off in triumph. Where ?
To the pawnshop, to get more money for
whisky. The family were as destitute as
ever, and John-had an extra supply of liquor. Such are the results of the manufacture importation and sale of intoxicating
As I stood in that miserable home, for it
contained no chair for me to sit on, these
questions presented themselves in my mind
with fearful force, where is the money gone
which should have been spent in clothing
for that poor women that she might attend
church, who has the money which should
have provided needful food and raiment
for those naked starving children ?
First, the saloon-keeper got hold of the
lion's share of John's cash. He was largely responsible for the suffering in John's
home. There is a striking difference between the costly attire of his wife and the
tattered rags of John's wife.
Second, the rum-seller paid a large sum
for license to trade with poor John. So a
considerable fraction of John's money
found it way into the Provincial Treasury.
It is much to be regretted that the government should have to share with the liquor dealer the proceeds of his trade.
Third, when John soaked his brain and
steeped his soul in Scotch whiskey and in
Bass's beer he did so by using that upon
which import duties had to bs paid. Thus
the minister of Finance at Ottawa obtained
his share of John's earnings. Some ten or
twelve millions from import and export
duties legally collected by the Dominion
Fourth, of course, the distiller and brewer had to be paid for their manufactured
goods. As managing director in partnership with the government, their pockets
were well lined with the proceeds of John's
toil and drunkenness.. The residence of
the distiller is a very different affair from
that of John'*, but it was John's money
which helped to build it.
Now I have sufficiently answered the
question above as to what had become of
the money. I have no idea of making any
impeachment of any of the gentlemen above
referred to. They may be good citizens
and good Christians. But they obtained
between them fully one half of that man's
earnings, to the damage and tuffering of
his family. But they obtained the money
in strict accordance with law. And law
goes on legalizing the importation, manufacture and sale of liquor. And it goes on
producing the ruin of thousands of homes.
When will the day come that the electors
and the legislator* of our country will undertake to remove such an infernal piece of
i legislation from the statue books of our
I land.

THE Tt 0
It Pays Deariv For its Brilliant
Gaseous Display.
F«r   Away   the   Gu.nat   Is, a   Globular
Mass, and as   II   Nears   the   Sun the
I   Action  of   That   Body   Untwines  the
Tail, Which Is Never Recovered.
Traveling ns comets do lu very elon
gated ellipses, with the suu lu one of
the foci, as tlie attracting point Is
[called, most of their Journey Is spent
tn slow uneventfulness far away from
jthe hearth of the system—hearth' 's
Just what the word focus means. Tbey
are then small globular aggregations,
sluggish and dim—a little roundish
nebula ln look. Sucb tbey appear
when first descried In the telescope
coming ln from space, for they are
rarely seen at all until they have entered within the orbit, of Mars. Distance in part, but still more tbelr own
behavior till then, beeps them hid.
Within this nebulosity, known as the
head, appears as it nears us a bright
spot, the nucleus. Suddenly there occurs a complete change In the deportment of the body, one which renders
It the observed of all observers, and in
less civilized times occasionally Its being held the harbinger of distress, disease and death.
As soon as the comet gets near
enough the beat of tbe sun sets np
eommotion within It By Very's determination of the temperature of the
tmblanketed sunward sid&of the moon
we are enabled to Infer that this heat
Is great at tbe earth's distance from
the sun in spite of tbe cold of space.
This temperature ts 3!>3 degrees if.
And as the comet approaches the
iSiin this beat must increase inversely
as the square of the distance. At half
the radius of rbe earth orbit It is already four times as great above absolute zero, at a quarter sixteen times,
and so on Increasingly, the temperature rising Into thousands of degrees.
No wonder the comet acts as it does.
It at once becomes'uneasy, wanes in
light and, as the spectroscope reveals,
disruptive electric discharges start in
it which let out the imprisoned gases.
Then begins that spectacular career ofj
perihelion passage which makes tbe
comet so superb an object and for
which It pays so dear. The gases
which are thus thrust out from the
interior of the separate meteorites, together witb such particles ot the iron
as are made gaseous by the beat, fall
prey to another force besides gravitation. This force is the impact of light
itself, the light emitted by the sun.
Tbat so immaterial a thing as a
beam of light can have power to move
'even a pith ball Is a conception not
easy to grasp. Vet there Is no doubt
of tbe fact, theoretically calculated
years ago by Clerk Maxwell from his
electro-magnetic theory of light, for the
gaseous particles procped to be repelled
by the sun at enormous speed, eacb
behaving exactly as It should by mathematical analysis If such were the oc-
sastoning cause Evidently the light
waves have a propelling power in the
direction of their own motion equal
to their own speed. x
Why, then, is_.lt that the planets betray no sucb effect In spite of their
size? The answer Is. because of that
very size. Uravlty acts on tbe mass,
a matter of three dimensions; tbe light
force on the surface of the body, a
matter of two. As a body diminishes
In size, therefore, its surface bears a
greater and greater ratio to Its mass
until when small enough the second
force is the stronger of the two.
This relatiop Is betrayed ln tbe conduct of tbe tall. |M'be imprisoned
gases, heated to ex^ulslou on the sunward side of the comet, rise toward it
.in a series of exquisite tuautling envelopes, as If tbe comet's bead were
veiling Itself from the too ardent gaze
of the sun. Then, arter riSIflg^tcr a°
certain height, their initial impetus
overcome, they fall back, repelled by
the light waves, although still attracted by gravity, and are driven out to
:form the tail of the comet, fresh envelopes taking their place.
Sometimes only a single tail Is formed, but at others two or even three are
isbot out, aud wben thin happens one
Is nearly straight, one curved and one
greatly bent Now. calculation shows
that tbe repelling force tn tbe case ot
the first is fourteen rimes tbat of gravity, in the second two aud two-tenths
times, or something less, aud In tbe
'third only about one-fifth of gravity.
But these are the very ratios which
'particles of hydrogen gas, of the hydrocarbons aud of iron or sodium
would respectively show.
As the comet approaches the sun tbe
display becomes more violent and
.more spectacular. . Finer and wilder
grows the pageant the "hairy star"
.loosening its tresses, whlcb bad stood
sedately colled about Its bead amid
the depths of space, to stream in
/gorgeous gleams behind it as It pays
I its orbital obeisance to tbe ruler' of
!lts course. It seemingly backs away
l In keeping with tbe etiquette to royal-
'ty, turning always Its face sunward
■as it retreats whence It came.
! But It pays dearly for Its display.
iTbo matter going to form tbe tall can
|never be recovered, but Is driven farther away. At each successive return
j to tbe sun some of Its mass and bril-
'itance Is thus lost, and this Is why the
[periodic comets, those that have made
[many visits, are such snuill and Inconspicuous objects. It Is only the

The Plea of an Aristocratic Beggar fn
Even a beggar may have pride—at
least in Mexico. At a railroad station
in that country, says Mr. W. E. Oar-
son in his book "Mexico," he noticed
standing a little removed from the
motley throng of mendicants a melancholy-looking Mexican wearing a rather battered^ brown felt sombrero, his.
limbs incased in skin tight trousers of1
thin gray cloth adorned with numer-i
ous patches. Over his shoulders was a
bright red blanket. , He was strumming away at an old-fashioned mandolin and singing some mournful
Spanish song.       -.
Catching sight of me, he stopped
playing and lifted his sombrero, I
went- Out on the car platform and
handed him five cents. To my astonishment, he politely declined my humble offering.
"Senor," said'he in choice Spanish,
with some emotion, "you must pardon me for being unable to accept
your gift, but I am a ten cent beggar, senor, and never, never accept a.
smaller gratuity."
Drawing himself up, with an air of
pride he continued, "I shall be honored to sing for your entertainment a
song of old Spain or one of our noble,
Mexican airs, but always for a fee of
ten cents, never for less, for I am a*
ten cent beggar, senor, poor as I am."
It was impossible to resist this'
touching protest; so, with an apology,
I handed the courtly vagrant his proper fee, which he acknowledged with,
"a thousand thanks" and a graceful1
At the other end of the car the mob
of beggars were scrambling for copper
coins thrown to them by my _fellow
passengers. The melancholy minstrel
glanced at them, shrugged his shoulders and waved his hand deprecat-
"Ah, senor," he observed, "those1
poor people! They have to work hard
to earn their brea_—good folk, worthy
folk, well deserving of your charity—
but they give you a very bad impression of Mexico..' Pray, senor, do riot
class them with poor musicians' like
With these words he commenced
twanging his discordant instrument
again and once more burs.t into a,
song so dismal that it seemed to make
the gloomy weather even more depressing.
How Bells Are Tuned.   /
When certain bells in a chime produce discord they can be tuned. The
tone of a bell may be raised or low-'
, ered by cutting off a little metal in
the proper places. To lower the tone
the bell tuner "puts the bell in''his
lathe and reams it out from; the point
where the swell begins nearly down
to the rim. As the work proceeds he
frequently tests the note with a tuning fork, and the moment the right
tone is reached he stops the reaming.
To raise the tone, on the contrary, he
shaves off the lower edge of the bell,
gradually lessening or flattening the*
bevel, in order to shorten the bell,
for of two bells of equal diameter and!
thickness the shorter will give the
higher note.
A notable instance of bell tuning
was at Lausanne, where twelve bells
in. three neighboring steeples produced only seven distinct notes
produced a most curious discord
Confessions of a Poet
Although Mr. Austin Dobson,
recently celebrated his seventieth
birthdky, is usually referred to as a
poet, he prefers to be known as a
prose writer. Verse represents only
a part of Mr. TDobson's output,
though, he humorously remarks, it
is idle ever to expect the world to'
realize this. As he put it, "The pub--
lie are always tolerant towards versatility, and apparently having tide-1
ed me off as a poet, so a poet I must
remain; but I have tried very hard
to write prose, and I am always more
pleased when I write a successful'
piece of prose than verse, though
poetry comes easier to me.'* Mr.
Dobson'a early aspirations were in'
the direction of art, and he actually,'
went through a course cf suidy ail
South Kensington.       '&
Nature's Spirit Level.
_ Natare forestalled the invention of1
the   spirit   level.    We  use   nature's
spirit   level  to   retain   our   balance.
This device consists  of  semicircular
canals'or channels   hollowed out  in
connection with the ear and hones of
the head and filled with a fluid lymph.
This fluid flows and   ebbs  in   these
channels and   by  eo  doing   informs
the brain .f the position of the body..
If we move the bead on one side the'
fluid flows that way and notifies us
that we are far beyond the perpendicular.   If it were   not for   this   remarkable spirit level we should never
know until we had   fallen  that  the
body was tilted to a dangerous angle
or that we were losing our balance.
A Delicate Proposal.
A Scotchman . who had survived
three wives and who had a fourth in
oontemplation decided upon a delicate
method of proposing to the latest object of his affections. Accordingly he
took her to walk one afternoon, and
before she realized where their footsteps tended they had arrived at the
graveyard where his lost loves .lay
buried. Standing before the three
tombstones, ho said:
"There lies Jpannie, there lies Gris-
sel, there lies Maggie, and," he added, pointing to the next vacant space.'
and taking her hand tenderly, "hmr>
wad you liko to lie there?"
Properly Cooked,   One Suggests
thoven, the Other Wagner.
Why is it that sauerkraut is never
truly fit to eat until it (has been cooked twice, with an interregnum of twenty-four hours separating the cooking?
And why is it that hominy boiled and
then fried is at times as delicious as
hominy simply boiled?
In "each case every hearty and artistic eater is aware of the fact, but ho
one thinks to discover the reason.
Among the ignorant, of course, sauerkraut is devoured at once and after its
first stewing, but the present inquiry
is not directed toward the habits of
the ignorant. To the connoisseur of
educated taste, to the refined amateur
of delicatessen, sauerkraut cooked
once is as unsavory a mess as Philadelphia pepperpot or Boston beans.
The very thought of it benumbs his
stomach and insults his intelligence.
And yet if that same sauerkraut be
laid away for twenty-four hours, preferably in a stone jar, with a brick on
top, and be brought to a simmer in
some suitable stewpan that same connoisseur will walk twenty miles in the
snow to get a scent of it and a hundred miles on redhot coals to get a few
skeins of it.
. In the Bavarian and Saxon royal
families the sauerkraut for Sunday's
breakfast is always cooked on Friday
evening. An hour or two of brisk
ebullition is enough. Then the beautiful strands are dredged up from the
caldron and transferred to a large
copper or earthen vessel, which is deposited, overnight ih sbme convenient
arsenal. There the kraut remains all
day Saturday and Saturday night. At
dawn on Sunday morning it is withdrawn from its vault and transferred
to an aluminum stewpan and seasoned. Then the mixture is heated, and
the result is sauerkraut de luxe. Once
cooked it would be mere food; twice
cooked it is a thing of beauty and a
joy forever.
Hominy has the same habits. Boil
it once and At is food for convicts and
political hangers-on, but boil it twice
or boil it and then fry it and it is
lifted at once to the range of a superb and flawless victual. The man
who has never tasted hominy in conjunction with -the native wild hog is
a man whose right to be regarded as
entirely civilized and cultured is yet
to be demonstrated. Such viands—
and alas, they are too few!—ennoble
while they warm and educate while
they nourishA In the art of eating
their place is as high as that of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony in the art of
Hominy, indeed, suggests Beethoven
in more ways-than .one. It shows all
of his rugged simplicity and honest
worth.' There is a directness about.it
which wins the heart. It is above all
pretense and subterfuge. Sauerkraut,
on the other hand, is more romantic.
It is not Beethoven, but Wagner. No
matter how well one knows it, it is
full of delicious novelties and surprises.   ■-.
They Did Not Know.
The young woman who reckoned
Anon among her favorite authors must
have been a sister of the officials of
the French Government mentioned by
Alexander A. Boddy in "To Kairwan
the Holy." The commissioners were
sent through Tunisia to ascertain the
names of the rivers, .mountains, ruins,
and so forth.
On the completion of the map made
by the officials it was found that a
very large proportion of the places
bore the same name—that of Ma'ar-
ifsh. It seemed strange and unnatural
that so many mountains, rivers and
ruins should be called alike. Yet the
explorers .solemnly assured the authorities that Berber, Zlass and other
Arabs had been carefully questioned,
and all gave like response.
The truth was that all the mountains, rivers and objects were labelled
on the map with the interesting name
in Arabic- "Don't Know"—"River

wares kept a donkey cart, with which
he visited the different villages.. On
one-occasion he came to abridge
where a tollwas levied.
He found to his disappointment he

A bright thought struck him. He
unharnessed the donkey and put it
into the cart. Then, getting between
the shafts himself, he pulled the cart
with the donkey standing in it on to
the bridge.
In due oourse he was hailed by the
toll collector.
"Hey, man!" cried the latter.

Sawkins says that something always
happens when his Aunt Abbie comes
to visit. She is eighty-four, and, although she cannot hear and her eyesight is poor, still she is very active,
particularly at night, when she frequently gets up to take a sip of milk
and nibble a cracker.
The first night of her last visit she
got up at two o'clock to take her second snack. Feeling around with a

voice sounded strange.
They sprang oat of bed nd yanked

Up to the third floor front darted
Sawkins, followed by his wife and
Aunt Abbie. The carpet and a wicker
chair holding Aunt Abbie's undergarments were burning briskly. Sawkins
grabbed rugs and tried to smother the
blaze, while his' wife ran to tbe fourth
floor to arouse the servants.
The servants came rushing down in
bare feet and nightgowns. Sawkins
meanwhile attended strictly to business.,- With water carried from the
bathroom the fire was extinguished.
During the excitement Sawkins had
forgotten ■ all about his father, but
as the old man had not showed up
Sawkins thought his father was still
asleep, downstairs.
It seems not. His father had heard
Aunt Abbie say "FireT and very
thoughtfully for an old man of seventy-nine, had opened his window and
yelled "Fire!" Then he had gone out
on the front steps in his nightshirt
and,yelled until some one heard him
and sent in an alarm.
When the firemen came one of them
took Sawkins' father, as he was, into
the next house. So when Sawkins ran
downstairs to tell bis father about
the fire he met the firemen coming up.
They told him the old man was in
next door. So soon as the firemen
had gone Sawkins went in next door
after his father.
Mr. Sawkins, Sr., was sitting in the
parlor, surrounded by "the neighbor's
family, and busily employed in consuming a hot drink. His costume was
a nightshirt covered by a swallowtail
coat, patent leather pumps and knees
draped in a steamer rug.
Sawkins was so struck by bis father's genteel appearance that he gravely thanked the neighbors for their
kindness in outfitting his father. Then
he took his father home in his novel
costume to show his wife.

saving of precious time in the busy season it would be to have a car

What a quick means it would present of marketing your small
fruit, vegetables, dairy, and poultry produce?
Do you know that over 76,000 farmers in the States are running
automobiles? They are realizing the benefits of quick transportation

"Sunset" Cox Pronounced the Eulogy

Aillai Stevenson in his reminiscences

We have just  received  a  large  shipment of
Rice Straw Brooms
j From Japan. ^
These we are selling at the
Ridiculously Low Price of 3 for $1.00.
As you know, the price of broom com is very high, and it is almost
impossible to get a good corn broom for less than 50c. to  75c, so
come and try the rice straw before they are all gone, as we cannot
get any more at the same price.

fruit by freight at this point successfully. This morning before leaving
I saw some Vashon Island strawberries, came from Winnipeg; arrived soft and mouldy. Express
rates from Winnipep to Prince Albert, $2.40 per hundred pounds.
There is certainly a better feeling
on the part of the jobbing houses
and retailers towards buying and
handling our fruit this season. They
recognize we have a good crop of
fruit; and tney are also aware that
it will come into these markets, and
if they do not handle it they . will
have it in competition anyway.
I am trying to impress upon jobbers, retailers, and consumers I
come in contact with, that we have
an abundant crcp of all varieties of
fruit, arid that it will be to their advantage to handle B.C. fruit for
many reasons.
Another point our growers and
shippers ought to bear in mnid is
the fact that although all our fruit
might be marketed in the provinces
of Alberta and Saskatchewan it will
be advisable to market a percentage of our output in the province
of Manitoba, for the purpose of not
only selling our fruit, but for the
advertising of it, and also the possibilities of fruit growing in this
p-ovince, removing the impression
that exists in the mind of some
that we are not growing or producing any appreciable quantity of
fruit as yet.
It is to be hoped our growers and
shippers will use every endeavor to
put on a good product this season
for these markets;  because  prices
will be ruled to a great extent by
Oregon and Washington competitive prices, and we may be prepared
to meet them.     Prices f.o.b. there,
plus the duty and any  advantage,
we may have in freight rates will
be the ruling prices for same variety and grade of fruit in B.C.
