The following motion was prepared by Aid. Stirling, and seconded by Aid. Leckie: "That the
Mayor and Treasurer be authorized to borrow from the Bank of
Montreal the sum of $1000 for
general expenditure, and that this
resolution be substituted for that
passed at the meeting of the .council 'of April 9th.
A letter was read from H. Willis
asking the council to grant him
permission to erect a tent in the
city park/ at the mouth of Mill
Creek. He said he would be willing to comply with any requirements which the council might
mention. Mayor Sutherland, in
commenting on the letter, pointed
out that whatever action the council took, in this instance, would
govern their course in future cases
of the kind.
Aid. Cox said  that similar re
quests had been made of the last
_ council, and_thought—emphatically
that they   should not   allow   the
practice to be started.
Aid. Stirling suggested that the
council might perhaps set apart a
certain part of the park^ for such
a purpose.
Aid. Leckie said that the difficulty would be that the council
would have no control over the
class, of people who might want to
use the park, and the privilege
would be open to much abuse.
After a little discussion, the application was rejected.
A report, submitted by the school
trustees, was referred to the finance
committee for consideration.
On the motion of Aid. Cox and
Leckie.the "sprinkling by-law," No.
73, fpr levying a special rate for
watering the streets in the business
part of the city, was reconsidered
and finally passed.
Mayor Sutherland said that several people had suggested to him
that Friday, the 20th, the day of
the late King's funeral, should be
made a public holiday./ There
was to be a memorial service at
St Michael's church in the afternoon. Moreover most of the towns
in the province were observing the
holiday, and he thought perhaps
it would be aa well if Kelowna
followed suit.
• Accordingly a motion was passed that Friday afternoon be de-
. clared a public holiday, and that
steps be taken to acquaint the people with" the fact.
Mayor Sutherland said it might
be advisable for the council  to
meet next Monday morning, as
there was considerable business on
hand, and considerable data- had
been collected with reference to
the installation of fire alarm boxes,
which could be considered then.
Mr. Elliott attended with reference to the construction of streets
near his subdivision on Pendozi
street, near the creek. In the absence of certain plans, hbwever,
the matter had to be left for" future
. Mr. G. C. Rose, who was present
said that he had with him a rough
draft of the lease of the site of the
Aquatic Association's building.
He found, however, that he could
not present it owing to an accidental omission which he had
discovered. He asked the council if they would discuss the matter
in committee during the week, so
that it would be ready to be dealt
with.at the next meeting.
The council then adjourned to
meet again on Monday next, May
23rd at 10 a.m.
Since the motion proclaiming
Friday afternoon a Jioliday was
passed by the council, a proclamation has been receiyed from the
Governor-General of the province,
directing thatthe whole day "should
be observed. The mayor's proclamation has; therefore .been
tended accordingly^' A/'.
Kelowna Tennis Club
A well attended meeting was
held last Saturday for the purpose
of discussing the formation of a
tennis club for the district. Last
year Dr. Boyce in his enthusiasm
for the game laid out extensive
grounds in Harvey Avenue. These
were carefully leveled and a high
wire nettingferice erected all around
and generally equipped as a first-
class tennis court.
It h_^s been felt for some time
that a club should be formed to
take advantage of the facilities thus
offered, and the proposal has now
begun to take definite shape.
Mr. F. A. Taylor was elected to
preside over, the meeting, Mr. H.
J. Hewetspn acting as secretary pro
tern.      <    .   ■
The first business was the election of officers, Dr. Boyce being
unanimously elected president.
Mr, F. A. Taylor being made -vice-
president. Mr. J. B. Whitehead was
appointed honorary secretary and
treasurer. A committee of ten was
then formed consisting of; Messrs.,
Mande, Meugens, Metcalf, Mappin,
Mallam, Peters, McTavish, Ford,
Leckie and Dr. Huycke.
The subscription was fixed at
$10 for gentleman residing within
a mile of the city limits $5 for■•■ ladies,- and $5 for country members.
Family subscription were fixed at
$ 15 (limited to three members), $3
being payable for each additional
member of of the family. An age
limit of 14 years was fixed, no person under that age being elligible
for membership.
Already the committee.are getting
bu3y and are entering intpnegpeia-
tions with Dr. Boyce for the
Friday's Funeral
The funeral of the late King will
take place tomorrow. All over
Canada and indeed all over the
Empire preparations have been
made to commemorate the occas-
sion. Memorial services are being
held in most churches, and the day
is to be observed as a general holiday. <
In the case of British Columbia
the following proclamation has
been issued by the Gpyernor-Gen-
" Whereas Friday, the twentieth day
of May, has been fixed for the obsequies
of His late Majesty, King Eld ward the
Seventh: And whereas the said day
has, by His Excellency the Governor
General, been proclaimed as a day of
mourning, to be observed by all persons
throughout the Dominion of Canada:
And whereas it is considered advisable
to appoint by Proclamation the said
twentieth day of may as a Public
" Now therefore, We have thought fit,
. by and with the advice of our Executive
Council, to appoint the twentieth day qf
May instant to be a Public Holiday, to
be observed as a general day of mourning
within Our Province of British Columbia."

King George's Address
to the Navy
Jessie McLachlan Concert
That Miss Jessie McLachlan has
lost none of her popularity was
evidenced by the reception accorded to her last Monday night. Her
exquisite rendering of the old
favorite Scottish airs was a treat to
her audience, and the Scotch portion at least, were stirred to the
wildest enthusiasm. -". Lochloman,"
"Bonny Dundee," and thcrest,
songs which never lose their power
to delight, received quite a new
The humorous recitals of Mr.
Craighall Sherry kept everyone in
a state of good humor, and the
songs of Mr. Barnaby Nelson formed a pleasing variety in a highly
interested programme. As pianist
Mr. Robert Buchanan,
talent oi high order, and altogether
the conipany was voted one of the
finest ever visiting Kelowna.
- The programme ended with the
singing of ""Auld Lang Syne," and
the National Anthem, but the enthusiasm of Miss McLachlan's
countrymen did not, by any means,
end there. A band of "braw
laddies," headed by Piper Graham,
conducted the popular singer to
her hotel, and the skirl ofthe pipes
and the singing of her admirers
was kept up until the hotel closed
its doors. But neither door nor
bolt can put the extinguisher on a
Scotsman's ardour, and the party
adjourned to the park, and until
well into the morning the air was
rent with their fearsome melody.
Notwithstand the short time
which some of the serenaders
must have had for slumber, a
number of them were on the
wharf Tuesday morning to see
Miss McLachlan and party on to
the boat, on their way to.fulfil
engagements up the valley.
The New Fire Alarm
The silent echoes of the evening
were rudely awakened- Tuesday
when the new fire alarm just installed at the power house called
the boys of the brigade to practice.
The unearthly screech, or\yell, or
howl, or whatever it might be called
is well calculated to awaken the
soundest sleeper, and its dismal
tones were only equalled by a dog
which lives somewhere at the rear
of the Bank of Montreal, and
whose unearthly yells may be
heard at times during the day and
- The steam siren, of course, had
not been " adjusted," and the first
attempts sounded as though all the
showed power house staff were jammed in
the machinery, and were loudly
calling upon the mayor for help.
The sound cannot, of course, be
confused with any other whistle,
and is certainly penetrating.
Westbank Notes
From our own correspondent.
In the Old Country the funeral
ceremonies will be of the most impressive nature. Altogether, thirty-
two countries will be represented.
Eight kings and emperors, four
ruling princes, and eight queens
will be among the mourners.
The bier bearing the remains of
the. late King will leave Westminster hall .for Paddingtbn' staticm
about a quarter past ten . that
morning, by which time the head
of the procession will be at least
half an hour on its way. The
moment the body leaves Westminster hall all cars of the tramway
systems in London will come to a
standstill, remaining stationary for
a quarter of an hour. It is announced that the period of deep mourning extends to June 17 and from
thence to July 29 half-mourning is
There is an extraordinary demand for seats to view the funeral
procession on Friday, £ 100 for a
well situated window being a
common figure, while it is stated
that, from five to seven thousand
pouhds have been offered for all
the windows of a house in a commanding position in Piccadilly, but
this offer has been declined.    The
One of the first messages issued
by King George, who has long
been known as the " Sailor Prince,"
was addressed to the navy. In it
the King says:
"It is my wish on succeeding to
the throne to make known to the
navy how deeply grateful I am for
its faithful and distinguished services, rendered to the late King,
my beloved father, who ever
showed the greatest solicitude for
its welfare and efficiency. Educated and trained in that profession
which I love so dearly, retirement
from duty in no sense has diminished my feelings of affection for
it. For thirty-one years I h^ve had
the honor of serving in the navy,
and such intimate participation in
its life and work enables me to
know how thoroughly I can depend
upon that spirit of loyalty and
zealous devotion to duty of which
the glorious history of our navy is
the outcome. That you will ever
continue to be as in the past the
foremost defender of our country's
honor, I know, full well, and your
fortunes will always be followed
by n_; with deep feelings of pride,
affection and interest."

Private Nursing Home Opened
Touching Message
from Queen Mother
The large-house in Glenn Ave.
generally know as Hassell's boarding house, has been taken by Nurse
Lawrerice and is being fitted up as
a^ private nursing and maternity
home. That there has been a need
for an institution of this kind is
shown by the enthusiasm with
which its establishment is being
received, and although Nurse Lawrence is engaging the services of an
assistant, there is every prospect
,that she will soon be taxed to her
utmost. -.A'...
Nurse Lawrence has had a careful training, and considerable hospital experience in various parts of
the world.and is therefore eminently fitted to take charge of a home of
this kind and as the scale of charges
is to be very moderate, there is no
doubt that the undertaking will be

The widowed Queen has sent
the following very touching personal .message to the nation, written in
unassuming style and recalling
similar intimate messages which
Queen Victoria was in the habit of
addressing to her people. •
" From the depth >of my poor
broken heart I wish to express to the
whole nation and the kind people
we love so well my deep felt thanks
for all their touching sympathy in
my overwhelming sorrow and unspeakable anguish. Not alone
have I lost everything in him, my
beloved husband, but the nation,
too.has suffered an irreparable loss
by their best friend, father and sovereign thus suddenly called away.

to bear this heaviest of crosses he
has seen fit to lay  upon  us.   His

me in all that I havegot to go through,
Let me take this opportunity of expressing my heartfelt thanksfor all
the touching letters and tokens of
sympathy I have received from all
classes, high and low, rich and poor
which are so numerous that I fear
it will be impossible for me ever to
thank everybody individually.

Another large undertaking,
which will materially increase the
already extensive area of irrigated
lands in the Kelowna district, is
that now being undertaken by the
South Kelowna Land Co., Ltd.
Under the management of Mr.
H. J. Hewetson, the con pany has
already a gang of some 45 men at
work building roads, and other
preliminary work in the hills in the
neighborhood of their extensive
watershed, which comprises some
2000 acres. As soon as this preliminary work is completed, the
force will be increased to 150 men
and the work of dam and flume
building will be pushed as rapidly
as circumstances will allow.
F. W. Graves, C. E., and Consulting Engineer Stoess, are engineering these extensive operations,
a series of lakes and creeks in
the mountains being utilized as the
water supply, an d it is expected
that the cost of the irrigation works
when completed will be in the
neighborhood of $200,000. The
work is being done in a permanent,
solid manner, cement being used,
where possible, and Mr. Hewetson
reports that .he work is progress- '
ing very satisfactorily, which he
expects will be completed and the',
lands, some 6,000 acres, placed on
the market early in 1911.
The land has a lake frontage of
about four miles, and is in one of
fKesp finest lpcatibns:on the"" lake".
The Kelowna Sports Assn. own a
tract of 17 acres, which they will-
lay out for polo, cricket, lawn
tennis, etc. v
The company recently placed
on the market a large number of
lake shore lots in the same neighborhood, for residential purposes, -
and which were very greedily
bought up, and it is expected that
the popularity of the" new land?
now being watered will equal that
of the residential sections.   „

Briefly, it is intended hereafter to,

and confidante of the ex-empress.
Some four ye.'irs ago this grant
lady_ did consider seriously the pos-
a&iliiy of giving lo the world some,
at leaet, of the priceless letters and
documents in her possession—letters
which, it _i said, would make it
necessary for historians of the Franco-
German war, and the reign of '■ N»-
poteon III. to re-write their work to
a considerable extent.
A publisher who was among the
first to hear the news, said to the
writer at the time:
"I consider thi.- book, if it can be
had, to be the most valuable work

money to be pan! on tlie nail on delivery of the MS. to a French publisher who was conducting the negotiations on behalf of a syndicate made
up of one leading publisher in each of
the principal countries, this sum to
be augmented by heavy royalties on
the book.
There was much traveling of publishers to and fro between London.
Berlin,-Paris and New York, and the
■arrangements were so far completed
thai contracts were drawn up between
everybody concerned—all except with
the "grande dame" principally interested. ^
She, on looking over the documents
for which the publishers wore so hungry, decided, so I e.m told* that their
publication might throw too much
light directly and indirectly on the
eausea of the Franco-German war
which plunged France .into misery.

There were de'^.r_. too, that did

in the best light, and scat last his
■widow set her imperial foot down on
Hbe idea of publishing any of her
memoirs or her letters.
It was a trying time for the ex-
empress after that decision. Personal friends, induced, some of them, by
promises of goodly commissions, kept
on approaching her with all sorts of
arguments to prove that it was her
($lti_y,to the world to <rpen thos^,
precious safes at Farnboreragh, England, where she lives. Her personal
secretary, M. Pietri, was kept busy
answering letters and keeping off
impoverished marquises vpAh publishers' commissions in their pocketn.
According to her own statement,
not one line oi the forthcoming
"Memoirs" has slic written, or.read,
or authorized, and it was undoubtedly at her personal request that M.
Olaretie has made the announcement
that the "Memoirs" are bogue. They
have been offered' all over Europe,
and oame near being sold to at least
one American publisher. Now that
the facts have eome out, probably
tbey will be suppressed, although it
is said that a huge French edition
has already been printed.
Of course, the financial side of the
offers made to  the ' ex-Empress E»-
rnie did not appeal to her, for she'
extremely rich—probably one of
the richest women in Europe. Perhaps her own inclinations' were not
altogether in the way, either, for her
final decision was reached only a
short time ago, after a visit from ber
nephew and heir, Victor Napoleon,
who, doubtless, would be Napoleon
IV., emperor of France, at this mo-
inent, if the republic had not been
declared. sjt
He will inherit her millions. He
has never given up hope of getting
back to the throne of France, as soon
as he can be reiraforoed with tho
wealth of his imperial kins women,
and naturally he would not like to j
have the old scandals nnd discussions
revived—as revived they would be if
the ex-empress should tell a tithe of
what she knows, however carefully
that tithe might be edited.
The ex-empress has added to her
bouse at Furn borough an immense
annex of corrugated iron, in which
many mementoos are stored, including two of the magnificent state
coaches, lined with white silk, which
were once used by her. Among other
treasures is the beautiful little perambulator, a gift to the ex-empress
soon after the birth of the Prince
Imperial, from Queen Victoria and
the Prince Consort. Pictures of the
Bonaparte family abound, the most
Interesting, perhaps, of all being one
of the great Napoleon as a youth, and
another of the ex-empress herself,
surrounded by the ladies of the court.
At Farnborough, Eugenie has been
even as charitable as her great means
will allow. In the gayest of her days
Bhe had thought for the poor. When
she fled from the Tuilevies, and rude
hands were laid on her wardrobe,
fifty parasols were found in one
drawer, her furs were valued at
$160,000, and the whole of her wardrobe at $1,000,000. Yet she has been
lavish where charities wore concerned.
She holds the highest record in
sponsorship; for she is godmother to
3,600 children. When her only child,
the late Prince Imperial, was born.
Napoleon HI. announced that he and
his wife would stand sponsors to all
children born in France on the same

The States are waking up to the fact
that Canada is fully competent to conserve
her natural resources for the use of her
own people, Time was when' opinion in
the Uuited States tended to regard Jack
Canuck as a hewer of wood and a drawer of
water for Uncle Sam. But certain expressions of a contrary sort that are now continually cropping up in the American press
show that this attitude towards Canada is
fast dying away. Here is a sample from the
editorial columns of the American Forestry
" Canada is measuring her timber re
sources and preparing to protect them by
progressive and drastic measures against exploitation for the benefit of wasteful foreign
countries.including her next door neighbor.
We cannot look to the.north for our salvation. We must husband all our remaining
resources and plant trees wherever they
can be grown more profitably than other
crops, in order that our own future may be
assured. This is the only way. Canada
has not the resources for her own needs
and ours too, and she is sufficiently wide
awake arid inteligent to guard her own.
The only way that pur timber resources
and Canada's can be made inexhaustible is
by application of the highest scientific
knowledge and the broadest common
The report of the Commission of Conservation stated that Canadian interests are given a
minimum consideration in the   company's
plans.   Of the total proposed developement
only a small portion (one sixth) would   be
developed on the Canadian side of the river,
The Canadian market, it states, cannot at pre
sent absorb its half of the proposed develop
ment and, should power be exported to the
United States, the vested interests it would
create there would prevent its subsequent
withdrawal to meet the future needs of the
Canadian industry.   Moreover,   the  company proposes a new channal for navigation
on the American side of the river, the approach of which will be beset  with  dangerous currents.   Thus, if permission were
given to build the dam, not only would it
be exceedingly difficult for Canada to proceed with the deepening of the  navigable
channel of the St. Lawrence, but an   all-
Canadian route from- Lake Supesior to the
ocean would become a dream of the pasti
A group of American capitalists are asking the Canadian and  the   United States'
governments for a very valuable  privilege
on the St. Lawrence river.   They want the
right to generate approximately 600,000 h.p.
of electric energy by damming that river at
Long Sault Rapids near Cornwall.   It is a
somewhat difficult matter to realize at once
just what that means; but  when  we  are
told that'it would take pretty  nearly  one
half of the yearly output  of  all  the  coal
mines in Canada  to  produce  the  same
amount of 24-hour horse power, it is readily seen how valuable  such  a  privilege
would be—to the capitalists at least.   To
Eastern Ontario, corporation control of that
enormous energy might not be so  advantageous.   Large corporations with monoply
privileges have  ever been noted for their
strict   adherence to the law of monoply
price, i.e. exacting as high  a  price  as  is
compatible with the greatest possible profit.   With them the interests  of  the  consuming public are but incidental to corp.
ation profits. x
But there other more serious objections
to the scheme. These have been concisely
set forth - by Commission of Conservation
in a report on the project made last February before the International Waterways
Commission— the tribunal that is to report
upon the advisability of the proposed dam. I

The Dangerous Fly
In an evening address at the recent annual meeting of the Ontario
Entomological Society, Dr. Hewitt,
the new Dominion Entomologist,
entertained and instructed  a very
large audience by an  account of
the common house  fly.    He  said
that these insects are  among  the
most   dangerous    of all,  chiefly
through the part they have ployed
in spreading disease.     Numerous
cases of typhoid are caused by them,
and the death of thousands of in
fants is shown to have been brought
about by the  agency.    The  main
way in which the flies carry disease
is by first frequenting. excrement
from sick patients,  or filth  laden
with disease germs, or sores of animals of any kind, and thus getting
thousands or even millions of germs
on   its   legs, tongue and   body.
Then, alighting on  the food  and
drink,   they contaminate it  with
these germs, and  thus  introduce
them into the human system.    All
mothers and housekeepers should
see that food, and especially milk
for infants is keep where flies cannot   get    to  it.      Moreover,  no
filth of any  kind,  but especially
horse-manure, should  be left exposed, because it is in   these  that
the flies lay their eggs and breed.
A single fly may  lay about   1,000
eggs, and these may all  turn  into
fulF grown flies in about  ten  days
after they are laid.
How After Giving Up Hope, Sbe
Was Cured of Dandruff
After reading this straightforward statement of Mrs. Elizabeth E, Anderson, of
Mechanicaburg, Pa., go to P. B. Willits &
Co., get a large bottle of Parisian Sage for
only 50 cents, and if it don't do for you
for you. what it did for Mrs. Anderson,
they will give you your money back. Just
read this letter, it's worth your while : .
. "I had given up hope of ever being cured
of dandruff when I purchased a bottle of
Parisian Sage. It has entirely removed the
dandruff, and has started a new growth of
new hair, and all this after having been
troubled for 15 years. I cheerfully recom
mend Parisian Sage."
Parisian Sage cures dandruff, because it
gets right down into the roots of the hair
and kills the thousands of pernicious dandruff germs.
Since the introduction of Parisian Sage
into Canada, it has been in demand by
thousands of of up-to-date society women.
Parisian Sage will turn harsh, lusterless,
ill looking hair into bright, luxuriant hair
in a few days. It is a delightful and invigorating dressing,- contain* no dye or
harmful'ingredients and is not sticky or
greasy. The girl with'the Auburn hair on

is the name decided on by the management of the Central Okanagan
Lands, Limited, for its lands until now known as " Dry Valley."  .
From the several hundred names suggested, the four following
were chosen as the favorites: "Glenmore," "Gleneden," "Homelands,"
and " Fruitaria." A vote was then taken which .resulted in a tie on
the names " Glenmore," and " Gleneden," and a further vote being
taken, " GLENMORE " was declared the winner,
The following persons gave in this name: Mrs. R. A. Walker,
Mrs. John Morrison, and Mr. C. Martin, amongst whom the cash
prize of $100 will be equally divided.
We take this opportunity of thanking those who took part in the
contest for providing us with so many beautiful names from which to
make our selection, and also to congratulate the winners on their
suggesting the beautiful name of " GLENMORE."
We respectfully request the public to adopt this name hereafter
in referring to this section of the Kelowna district.
First Sub-division of " GLENMORE " has
been placed on the market
The Company also wishes to advise the public that it has recently
placed on the market the first sub-division of " GLENMORE."   This
, sub-division comprises 320 acres of the property nearest to town, and
owing to its location, the quality of the soil, and the view it commands, is
The very choicest Orchard and Residential Land
in the district.
Local people as a rule (and it is the same in every locality) are very slow in
seeing the opportunities at home, and afterwards regret that they were not more
far-sighted. We wish to impress upon the minds of the Kelowna people that this
is the only land ,in the district so desirably situated, and covered by such an irrigation system as is being constructed. This land which we now offer you in lets of
five acres and upwards, will in a very few years be the choice residential section of
this City and Valley, and be Worth many times its present selling price. Vancouver
people have been quick at realizing its value and future possibilities, and quite a
i, number  of its leading citizens have already purchased.   Later on, as the town and
district develope, you will be sure to want a piece of this desirable property, but you
will then have to pay several times the price we now ask. Consider the matter well
but do not delay too long. At the rate these lots are being taken up we will have
none left within a very short time.
JXCaps of the sub-division, together with information regarding prices and terms Will be
furnished upon request.

The Slaughter of the Innocents.
Mrs. Marther M. Allen.
In February, 1906, an Associated Press
dispatch sent out over the country a
statement by Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, Chief
of the Bureau of Chemistry of the Department of Agriculture at Washington,
D. C, that in his opinion, more than n
million American babies have died from
the effects of poisoning by morphine contained in soothing syrups, administered by
mothers in ignorance of the nature of what
they were giving their babies.
In Baltimore, Maryland, some months
ago, two children in one home disd from
the effects of a soothing syrup called
" Kopp's Baby Friend." The district
attorney, in connection with this case,
published a warning in the papers against
the administration of nostrums as family
medicines. Not long aftetwards a child
died in Utica, New York, from the effects
of the same medicine. A physician in
Omaha reports a case of poisoning by this
" Baby Friend." H; says, " The child
after taking four drops went into a stupor
at once, the pupils of his ey«s were pinpointed, skin cool and clammy, heart and
respiration slow. It took twelve hours
before my little patient was out of danger."
Many mothers of the poorer classes have
used these soothing syrups so that their
babies would require no attention while
they worked; and some mothers have
deliberately "doped" their infants that
they might thus secure freedom to go to
the theatre, or party, or other place of
These pleasure-seeking mothers are of
the class which think only of present
advantage. The idea of consequences
which work themselves out slowly through
all the after- years does not seem to occur
to them. Consequently the nsw law
which requires patent medicines which
enter into inter-state commerce to bear a
label telling of the presence of alcohol, or
morphine, may not. deter them from continuing to give their little ones these
dangerous "quieting" preparations. But,
even the selfish mother has love for her
child, and if she learns that her foolish
practise may result in permanent injury to
the brain and nervous system of the child
she will be more cautious about giving it
stupifying medicines.
A few months ago a W. C. T.U. speaker
was addressing an audience upon the evils
of self-medication with powerful drugs,-
and upon the dangers of patent medicines
containing alcohol, morphine, cocaine, etc.
At the close of the lecture one woman was
weeping; she told a friend that if she had
only known these facts while her children
were young she might have bean saved
great sorrow. She had used soothing-
syrups freely with her children; two had
grown up' to be users of morphine; one
had died a nervous wreck, and the fourth
was feeble-mended. Physicians who have
made a special study of the effects of these
morphine preparations upon children attribute to them much of moral, as well as
mental and physical ruin. The Massachusetts Board of Health said years ago,
"The sale of soothing syrups, and all
medicines designs for the use of children,
which contain opium and its preparations
should be prohibited.—
Among truants and m ^ths early years of
life, soothing syrups are the cause of untold misery, for seeds are doubtlrssly sown
in infancy only to bear the most pernicious
fruit in adult life."

Canada, being a nation of farmers, has to
pay a very large seed bill each year. Last
year our crops called for 33,000,000 bushel*
seed grain—wheat, oats and barley, and we
are constantly increasing our agricultural
acreage. This being so, the economy of
•owing good seed is a apparent. The advantages to be derived from it are like the
proceeds of a sum of money hud out at
compound interest—they are cumulative in
their effect and grow in ever increasing ratio. Some years ago a competition was
carried on in some 450 place* in Canada
to see just what the actual result* of using
clean pure seed would be, If we reason
with the results obtained by it, v/e find
that our grain last year would have been
increased by 190,000,000 bushels had clean
vigorous seed been sowed on every acre
under cultivation. Now. 190,000,000 bushels of grain would'fill 1,500 mile* of
railway grain cars. It is such 'a- large
amount that it is hard for the mind to

THE WE" &:L.
Animajs a Hun
ta  Size.
is about six inches
A Formidable Fog to
(jA  dred  Tinr.es
Th- weasel is about six niches ir
length from tip to tip, which seems
very great compared with the height
erf the animal, which is not above; an
inch and a half. The wolf is not above
one and a half times as long as> he is
high, while the weasel is nearly live
times as long, an amazing disproportion. The tail also, which is bushy,
is generally two. inches long and adds
to the apparent length of the body.
The color of the weasel is a light
brown on the back and sides, but
white under the throat and belly. The
eyes are little and black. The ears
are short, broad and roundish and
have a fold at the lower part, which
makes them look as if they were double. Beneath the corners of the mouth
on each jaw is a spot of brown.
This animal, though diminutive in
appearance, is nevertheless a very
formidable enemy to quadrupeds a
hundred times its own size. When
kept in a eago it will not touch its
food while anybody looks on. It keeps
in a continual agitation and seems
frightened so much at the sight of
mankind that it will die if not permitted to hide itself.
For this purpose, says Fur News, it
must be provided in its cage with a
sufficient quantity of wool or hay in
which it may conceal itself and where
it may carry whatever it has to eat.
In this state it is seen' to pass three
parts of the day in sleeping and reserves the night for its exercise and
In its wild state the night is likewise the time during which it may be
. said to live. At the approach of evening it is seen stealing from its hole
and creeping about the farmer's yard
for its prey. If it enters the place
where the poultry is kept it never attacks the cocks or the old hens, but
immediately goes after the young ones.
Generally it merely suc_.'the blood
of the victim.
It is remarkably active, and in a
confined place scarce any animal can
escape it. It will run up the sides of
the walls with such facility that no
place is secure from it. Its body is so
small that there is scarce any hole but
that it can wind through. During the
summer its excursions $re extensive,
but in the winter it chiefly confines itself to barns and farmyards, where it
remains till spring and where it brings
forth, its young.
All this season it makes war upon
rats and mice with still greater success than the cat, for being more active and slender it pursues them into
their holes and after a short resistance destroys them. It creeps also into pigeon holes, destroys the young,
catches sparrows and ■ all kinds of
young birds, and if it has brought
forth its young hunts with still greater
boldness and avidity. In summer it
ventures farther from the house and
particularly goes into those places
where the rat, its chief prey, goes bo-
fore it. |*
The female takes every precaution
to make an easy bed for her little
ones and lines the bottom of her hole
with grass, hay, leaves and moss/and
generally brings forth three to five to
a litter. The weasel, like others of
its kind, does not run on equably,
bat moves by bounding, and when it
climbs a tree by a single spring it
gets a good way. from the ground. It
jumps in the same manner upon its
Crey and, having an extremely limber
ody, evades the attempts of much
stronger animals to seize it.
