the   statements   with   respect   to
Kelowna's water system by  their

., and  hoping that the friendly "relations which had always existed
between tKe two towns would "hot
' be impaired  by the   unfortunate
affair.,- - ^-.
A letter was read from W. A.
McKenzie & Co.. of Toronto,-in
reference to the sale of debentures.
The question of the police
magistrate's salary was left in abeyance until the return of Aid. Jones.
Mayor Sutherland brought up" the
question of delinquent tax payers.
He .reminded the council that last
March notices had been sent round
to property1 owners who bad failed
to pay their taxes, informing them'
" that their lands would be sold in
the event of non-payment. It was
now in order to appoint a time and
place for the sale. -7

The question of the troubleat
the power house then came up,
last Friday's storm having tempor--
arly put the lighting plant out of
business. The unusual 'Severity of
the lightning for the Okanagan had
evidently caught the electric light

of chaff in connection ' with the
affair.        A     ' •
* J He' admitted that perhaps they
' had been' a little dilatory in not
having the plant protected wijh
resisters before, but he explained
in extenuation that this was the
first time in which the lightning
had been known to strike in the
valley, and they had not looked for
anything of the kind. The Pair-
banks people had, moreover, declared the pjant to be quite safe.

Aid. Cox did not think this was
the case. He thought.it would be
very annoying, especially on a
Saturday night when-all the stores
were busy, to have the lights cut
off because a storm happened to
'come on.
Mayor Sutherland said that while'
they were' on the subject -of the
power house, they might as well
consider the advisability of installing a new shaft. 'It would have
to be done sooner or later.   The

, A, runaway team belonging to
CoJI-tt's livery made things lively
in Mam street last, Friday afternoon. They started from near the
-barn in Abbott street, being scared
by the lines gettingv under the
tongue of the wagon they were attached to, making for . Bernard
avenue at-a mad pace. TKe back
part of the wagon became detached
near the Lake View, and with the
rest of the vehicle trailing behind
them the thoroughly frightened
team rounded the corner and
dashed- up main street, keeping
close in to the sidewalk. Several
horses were tied up in front of the
stores, and _a collision was inevitable. *     .
• Mrs.-J. Mprrison was sitting in a
buggy in front of Crawford's store,
and' Seeing the team coming, waved
her white parasol in an endeavour
to turn them. But she might as well
have tried to Stop a cayalry charge.
They crashed into the buggy at
full speed, completely overturning
it and falling jn a struggling mass
of harness and horse-flesh. Mrs.
Moirison fell under the buggy and
for a few seconds was in a most
perilous position. She managed,
however, to crawl back under the
overturned rig" when Mr. Crawford
lifted her clear of the wreckage.
She was carried into Trench's
drug store,' and Dr. Knox was
hastily fetched from his surgery by
Mr. Crawford^who commandeered
an automobile" which was standing
outside the post office. Happily
the old lady was uninjured, save
for a severe shaking and was able
to drive home later in the evening.
The buggy .was badly smashed,
and there was' some broken harness., Mr«, Pridhains rig was
standing lower down the road, and
though the horse jumped clear, the
shafts 'were-1 broken. 7;
A scoreiof willing hands helped
to get the struggling hories on their
feet and clear of th,e wreck.

was stated a few weeks ago, a
packing house and office here, and
a chat with the manager, Mr. Baker,
elicited the pleasing information
that the company has*" already
made good, and is doing' a very
extensive business in Kelowna
produce, 81 separate shipments
being sent out the day previous,
(Friday) from this point.
To lake care of this tremendous
amount of stuff passing through the
company's hands, they have men
and agencies placed at the most,
important points along the main
line, thus being able to place our
products just where they are needed most, avoiding overcrowded
markets and consequent low'prices
This organizing work has been
carrjed on now for the "past three
year? by Mr. S. J. Fee, a man of
many years experience" in the
work, and the results of his endeavors are now strongly in evidence in the amount of stuff being
tilled out from the collecting'
branches. -
Mr. Baker has just been down
the lake buying peaches very heav
ily, and these will be delivered to
Kelowna for final packing and
distribution.    ,
The company has already made
a name for itself for its ability to
handle a large amount .of stuff,
and for getting top prices „ for the
same, Mr. Baker has a stack of
correspondence from pleased shippers, from which  we  reprint  the

The thunderstorm of last Friday
was a shock to ^Celowna in many
ways. It is believed to be the first
time on record that the lightening
has been bad enough to do any
damage in the valley. Our unlucky power plapt, being insufficiently protected by lightening arresters, was .struck, and the generator temporily put out of business.

themselves burned out, worked

its horror to the plight of the people of Campbellton, and vigorous
measures are being taken to prevent the spread of disease.
Every one, who can',,is leaving

who remain; many are huddled
together in tents. Others are in

Mta. Herdman, wife of the- Rev.

relatives living in Campbellton, including an invalid sister, and for
several    days   anxiously   awaited
new. as to how they had fared. 'A
letter; arrived  Monday   with   the
welcome tidings that all were safe.
The ntiirSe, who had charge of the
sick lady,, had written to say that
they had escaped down the river
by steamboat as soon as  the  outbreak occurred.   She told a frightful stoky of the  sufferings of the
unfortunate people, espa;ciallythose,
chiefly French, who were too poor
to get away.   Disease was breaking
put from insanitary conditions, and
looting of luins was common. The
railway'track was burnt out for
several miles, and communication
practically cut off.

City Council Meeting
Continued from page I
Aid. Stirling said he had one  or
two   matters   to   bring  before the
council.    The first was the question
of the fruit exhibit for the Canadian
National Apple Show at Vancouver.
The Board of Trade, he said,  had
appointed a committee  to  get together an exhibit for Kelowna to
compete at the show, and they had
to   appeal   to   the    people    for   a
guarantee  fund to  cover   the  expense   of  sending same.    He did
not   expect   that   the    guarantors
would have to be called  upon,  as
with proper organization the undertaking   should   pay for itself.    He
felt sure that a properly arranged
exhibit from  Kelowna   wo»ld be
.   certain   to   win.     The   committee
were approaching the various land
companies   foa» support,   and    he
wished   to   know    if   the   council
would be willing to assist.
The mayor asked how large a
grant would be acceptable to the
Aid. Stirling thought about $100.
Mayor Sutherland said that one
mill on the rate would produce
about $1000 available for grants.
The amount was left over in order
to see what remained of this $1000
after apportioning the various
grants already arranged for.
Aid. Stirling again drew attention
to the dusty condition of Pendozi
street. It was in a very bad state.
The watering cart had been over
it, but the effect had only lasted
about two days.
Aid. Leckie pointed out that a
dressing of crude oil was supposed
to last two years. He suggested
that it might be advisable to consider the comparative cost of the
two methods.
Aid. Stirling said that Pendozi
street never had been properly
made. Some day there ought to
be a better surface made to it.
There was a great deal of traffic
along the street and the dust was
Mayor Sutherland asked if the
residents would be willing to assist
in the watering voluntarily, or
would it be necessary to pass a bylaw as had been done for the
centre of the town.
Aid. Stirling thought the residents
would be quite willing, and expressed himself as quite ready to

The city clerk was asked as a
resident on Pendozi street for his
opinion. He said he had spoken
to several people about it, and he
thought there would be many who
would object to paying anything
towards watering the road, holding
the view that the rates were high
enough already.
Aid. Stirling thought the by-law
should be drawn up for the sake
of the town. The road was an
important one, and much used
amongst other things by the doctors'
automobiles in passing to and from
the hospital.
It was decided to prepare a bylaw, and in the meantime to put
the water cart on.
Mayor Sutherland pointed out
the necessity for the Various committees to find out what had been
spent in their departments, and to
prepare estimates to submit lo the
finance committee.
By-law No. 77, limiting the speed
of automobiles within the city
limits to 15 miles an hour, and 10
miles on approaching a crossing,
was read.
By-law No. 78, a temporary loan
by-law to raise the sum of $22,000
in anticipation of the city's revenue
' for the  year   19,10  was   read   a
second time.
By-laws Nos. 77 and 78 were
also read a third time, after which
the meeting adjourned until Monday next, Juty 1$, at 10 a.m.     '
Peculiar Experience of a Turkish Literary  Man.
Once upon a time a certain Turkish
literary man living in Constantinople
arranged to translate for a daily [newspaper a novel then popular in ICug-
land. Each day he rendered a sufficient part of it Into the Turkish language to fill the space reserved for it.
One day his peaceful home was entered by the police, who peremptorily
arrested the man of letters and drugged him off to prison. No explanation'
was given for his arrest. The novel re
fleeted iu no way against the politics
of the state, and be had broken no
laws. He was not even given time tr
bid farewell to his family, but he was
commanded to bring the work undei
translation with him. Arrived at the
prison, he was given pleasant quarters, good food and drink and sternly
commanded to complete his task. So
for several days the frlghtered translator worked arduously.
When the work was done he was, to
his astonishment, instantly liberated
and presented witb a large sum of
money. Dpon further inquiry as to his
treatment it was explained that the
sultan had become interested in tbe
story as it appeared from day to day
aud was too impatient to wait for the
end. He wanted to read all the rest ol
it at once! Truly, there are certain ad
vantages in being a sultan.

Mr. Winslow reports as follows
upon his recent survey of fruit crop
conditions in Oregon, Idaho, and
Washington: ,
Puyallup, Wash., July 1st: A
raspberry and blackberry sections
There are 606 shipping members
in the Association this year! The
president stated that they would
receive an average of $1.55 per
crate this year. Crates are similar
to the American strawberry crate,
with deep cups holding 201bs. to
221bs of fruit net. Cuthbert and
Antwerp are the chief varieties,
the former being generally preferred. The average yield per acre
was given as 300 crates, and the
costs are: picking, 40c, crate, 16c.
hauling, 4c, assoc. charges, 6c,
leaving the grower 85c. a crate, or
about $250 an acre net profit.
1 he fruit is shipped by local express, using pony refrigerators,
and also in car lots. The maximum shipment this season was 7
cars a day. Some cars go to Winnipeg, under a $2 rate, minimum
being 500 crates.
Hood River, July -2nd. This
district expects to ship 200,000
boxes of apples, principally Spitz,
and Yellow. Newtowns.
Yakima. July 5th, The. apricot
crop will be medium, peaches very
heavy, shipments about 1000 cars.
75per cent. Elbertas, going out
about Aug. 20th td 30th. Prices
for earliy varieties 50c. to 55 c.
f.o.b., but Elbertas will be lower.
Much of this fruit will be consigned.
Lewiston-Clarkson, July 7th: Apricots going put now, fetching 65 c.
for medium stock.
This is a mixed car section, and
of 200 cars of peaches to send out
only about seventy-five will be
straight cars, dayman plums are
over. Peach plums now shipping.
White Bros, and Crumof this point
are large growers and shippers,
and control many of the Canadian
wholesale houses. They expect
to ship a large quantity of fruit to
Canadian Prairie points. This
fruit will be mostly out of the way
before B.C. fruit comes on, the
peaches and soft fruit generally
affecting B.C., coming irom from
Yakima Valley points.
Wenatchie, July 8th : The Prinr
cipal shippers here are the Wenatchie Produce Company, Wenatchie Valley Fruit Growers' Assoc,
and the Central Produce Co. These
firms expect 30'to 40 cars of apricots shipped from theV valley.
The first straight car was shipped/
July 7th, at 65 c. crate. The , ,op.in<-
ion was that prices would not go
lower than this. There will b^ 300
cars of peaches here, which: will
precede Yakima by a few days.
No prices on Elbertas being quoted
buyers being shy because of heavy
crop.     .
Apples are a good crop everywhere, no prices are being talked
yet, but growers feel that $1.50 for
fancy winesaps will make the basis
for returns. A,
Pears are a good crop, and bart-
letts will be on the market from
Wenatchie and Clarkston in a few
Early apples are netting the
grower 85c, and are reported to
be teturning the shippers up 16
The growers seem to feel that
what they call living prices will
prevail in most fruits. It is not Expected that the low level of two
years ago will prevail on peaches.
It seems that the growers in B.C.
especially of soft fruits, should aim
to put up the very best grade and
p nek possible, and that we avoid
particularly tbe shipment of over
ripe fruit. Anything that would
slump the market should be carefully kept off it.
Charles Stewart Rolls, millionaire
English aviator was killed last week
by a fall from aeroplane at the aviation meet Bournemouth, England.
Aviator Audermars fell at same
time and was badly hurt. Rolls
recently made the round trip flight
from Dover to France over the
English channel ia a Wright aeroplane.
Flying in a Wright machine: -ji.
the alighting competition* for la
prize of $1350, the aeroplane turn-
ned a summersault, crashing to the
ground,cnis,hing the aviator to death
directly opposite the grand stand.
The stand was filled with representatives of English society and tn^ny
were friends of the aviator. Almost
immediately after the first signs.;of
trouble were noticed-the aeroplane
turned a complete summersault and
plunge-straight down. Rolls attempted to extricate himself but
At the irrigation convention that
will be held at Kamloops at the beginning of August there will be
gathered together many men to
whom the subject of irrigation has
a keen interest. Hon. Clifford Sifton, chairman of the, Canadian conservation commission, has been
invited to attend. R. H. Campbell
superintendent of forestry, Ottawa,
will be present. Premier McBride
and Hon.~Thos. Taylor will be in
attendance, as will Martin' Burrell,
M.P., R. B. Bennett, K.C., and Wm.
Pearce, of the C.P.R. service, Calgary. Prof. Etclieverry, of the department of agriculture, university
of California, will read a paper on
a practical subject and will deliver
a lecture in the evening, illustrated
by lantern slides. Chas. Wilson,
K.C. has been asked to read a paper on the new water legislation
and there is promise that in point
of interest the convention this year
will be most successful. There is
a marked interest manifested in the
event and most of the large irrigation companies will send delegates
to the gathering and the various
other bodies entitled to presentation
will send delegates.
Although the first convention of
llie association was held at Calgary
only three ye^rs ago, the work of
convention has shown results and'
much has been done to advance
the principle of irrigation and its
closely allied subject, the conserva-,
tion of water. With respect to the
latter, it may be pointed out that
at the- convention at..Lethbridge
last year a resolution was adopted
covering the east slope of the Rocky
mountions in order to prevent the
deforestration of that area and the
consequent rapid melting of snow
at the headwaters of the mountain
streams, causing destructive floods
and water waste. The government
has done as requested in this instance and the result will be the
permanent conservation of the natural water supply in that area.
' At previous conventions certain
legislation has been asked for, and
other steps taken to secure the advancement of irrigation and a fair
apportionment of water to users,
v/ith the result that good has come
of the recommendations, for the
provincial and federal governments
have given evidence / that they
recognize that when a number of
practical irrigationists, representing
three important provinces, get together and decide that a certain
course is advisable, what is in effect
expert counsel is being offered and
the recommendations carry weight.
This year the convention will have
the working of the new water act
under consideration and the work
of the convention in this regard
will have its effect with the bosrd
of water commissioners who are.
carrying out the provisions of the'
measure. Altogether, there is promise of the sessions of the convention
being replete with interest, not only
to British Columbians but to irrigationists in Alberta and Saskatch-,
ewan. . " -
-   The visiting   delegates   will  be
shown orchards and farms inthe
vicinity where irrigation has long
been  practised  and  others in the
early stages of development.   All'
that is needed  to make the con-1
vention the success it should be is
a large, and representative attend-.
ance and the indications point tc;
this wajit being filled. • Apart from v
the work of the sessions, visitors
will  find  Kamloops  an attractive!
city, with the rolling, hills, the great ■
navigable     waterways    and    the-
thousands of acres of valley lands
in the hands of irrigation companies.
It is hoped that every body entitled
to send  delegates will not fail  to
participate in this, the fourth annual
convention of the Western Canada
Irrigation association.

Hotu it Goes in Ohio.
Ohio has closed about 2,500 saloons
within the last year or so.
Ohio is out of debt.
All the state revenue is now raised by
taxes on corporations and special privileges.
The state has a surplus of several
million dollars.
The sources of revenue which have
created this surplus are all  open.
The decrease in the liquor tax is little
more than half a million a year. -
The revenue from Corporations is increasing every year.
The revenue from automobile license is
increasing each year by  thousands.
The net increase in taxable values will,
according to Secretary Thompson, n\ore
than half meet the loss of the saloon  tax.
The state board of appraisers and assessors has boosted the valuation of telephone
and telegraph companies for taxation purposes from $600,000 to $19,000,000.
The bank values of the state have been
increased from $1,700,000 to $94,000,000 in
round numbers.
And already the dry counties of the
state are beginning to show results in increased wealth. The closing of saloons
has increased the value of property, increased the productiveness of labor, increased the bank deposits, increased all
lines of legitimate labor.

Hotel   Bars  Not   Desired    by
Commercial  Traoellers.
Mr. R. N. Leonard, a well-known travelling man of Ohio says :—■
" Being a travelling man, 1 believe I am
in a position to know something about the
hotel business, having a good deal to do
with hotels. I do not believe that hotel
bars are a paying institution if they rely
mainly upon the travelling men for support
They must be patronized by people at
home, or they could not possibly exist, for
the majority of travelling men today are
not boozers in any sense of the word.
You will find more total abstainers
among travelling men today than among a
like number of any other profession or
occupation ; and I count it an insult to the
travelling men for any set of liquor retailers to make claim that they are compelled
to keep a bar to accommodate the* travelling men or to make a hotel profitable.
Invariably, whenever a hotel makes its bar
the chief attracton, there is where we find
the poorest meals and accommodation: but
when you find a hotelkeeper who looks
after his dining room properly and gives
his patrons the worth of their money, you
will find that hotel doing a good business.

Wai Cured of Dandruff
After reading thia straightforward state*

only 50 cents, and if it don't'do (or you
for you, what it did for Mrs. Anderson,
they will give you your money back. Just
read this letter, it'a worth your while.:
"I had given up hope of ever being cured
of dandruff when I purchased a bottle : of.
Parisian Sage. It haa 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 recommend 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, contains no dye 'or
harmful ingredients and is not sticky, or
greasy. The girl with the Auburn {(air oh

200 acres of Fine Fruit Land to be sold in one block,
or in lots of 40 acres.
T^HE property is situated Upon a fine bench, with an easy slope to the Okanagan Lake, and
includes a large level stretch of some of the finest agricultural and fruit land in the whole
valley. Its sheltered position gives it an advantage in the way of climatic conditions unexcelled even in the far-famed Okanagan Valley. A fine little peach orchard is already in full
bearing; having fruit when almost all others would be bare, thereby proving its favorable situation and natural protection from severe and late frosts.
It is six miles north of Kelowna, within easy distance of school, and with some of the
most flourishing orchards .on the lake dotted here and there in close proximity.
Kelowna fruit has
won highest honors
in competition with
the world. V
It commands the
best markets arid the
very highest prices of
any fruit grown.
The close proximity of the lake has a
moderating effect on
the climate, making
the summers cooler
and winters warmer.
An excellent ODDortunitv is here afforded to the smaU holder seeking a orofitable home
amidst the most beautiful surroundings. The place has twenty chains of lake frontage, and the
facilities for boating and fishing are of the best.
Plenty of water is available for irrigation purposes, and the greater part of the land is
cleared and in crop. The soil is of fine quality, easily workable, and with scarcely a stone on
the whole place. The gentle slope of the warm sheltered hillside above the flat affords an
ideal situation for a peach orchard.
The Price is remarkably easy—$100 an acre for the whole property, or $125 an acre for
a forty-acre lot.

Headquarters for the Economical Buyer
from B.C., both for jobbers and
For the week ending July 9th
there arrived by express at Calgary
from B.C. 1,700 cases of different
varieties of small fruits. Some of
these were distributed to points
east and north from here. The following are jobbers prices to retailers today July 9th on California
and B.C. fruits :—-

Tomatoes 4      "      4-5. $4.00
These tomatoes from B.C were
very fine stock, sound, solid, uniform, and of good size and color.
The following is an estimate of
peaches that probably can be sold
or handled at the points given below for preserving purposes. I
submitted these estimates to all the
jobbers here, and they were confirmed by them. I may say this
includes the areas the jobbers distribute into at the various points :-
Calgary 20 to' 25' carloads
Lethbridge... 5 to   8       "
Medicine Hat 2
Moose Jaw    5 to   7
, Regina 10
Saskatoon 8
Winnipeg   25 to 35        "
Brandon 10
New Westminster
ln addition to this there will be
what is canned and preserved by
the canneries, and preseived and
canned by consumers at local points
in B.C.
This estimate may be affected
and decreased by a partial failure
of the crops in some parts, as is
threatened at the present time for
want of moisture, south and east
from this point, Calgary, and also
from the fact that peaches are regarded as more or less a luxury.
California peaches are 35c per case,
Washington, Oregon, at 45c per
case are about equal to 70c ih B.C.
the margin of difference being covered by duty, variation in freight
rates and icing charges. I think it
advisable for growers and shippers
to get quotations in hands of jobbers and retailers in these provinces
now, before they buy from American points, and at the same time
use every endeavor to put up a
good product in every respect, perfect your arrangements for shipping,
and be ready to move your crop
quickly and expeditiously as a crop
requires to be moved, because failure in one detail may mean serious
loss to you.
I hope that growers and shippers
will furnish our exhibition commissioners with an abundant and regular supply of all the different kinds
of fruit available, send the best,
and pack carefully. These exhibitions,are just starting, and I regard
them as a good ad. for B.C., particularly now as our province with
its big crop df fruit looms up large
in the public eye of these provinces,
and will much more so if yrc market this big crop successfully. . I
may stfrte I am doing some adver-
