A meeting of the city council
was held Monday n-orning last,
attended by the mayor and Aldermen Cox, Jones, Leckie and Stirling.
The minutes of last meeting having
been read and confirmed, the
following accounts were referred
to the finance committee, to be
paid if found correct:
Canadian Fairbanks Co., cast plugs
and insulating varnish	
Crane Co., steam separator	
do.      corporation stopcocks...
C. P. R. express on brass cocks, etc
do.   freight on steam separator
A motion was put through that
the mayor and treasurer be authorized to borrow from the Bank of
Montreal the sum of $1000 for
general purposes.
NTbe subject of a fire alarm system
was then taken up, the mayor announcing that Mr. Millie, who was
present, had been going into the
subject, and bad collected a large
amount of prices and other data.
He had kindly consented to come
before the council that morning
and lay before them the information he had gathered with respect
to fire alarm boxes.
Mr. Millie said he had carefully
examined the merits of several
different systems, and by far the
best for the city's purpose was oqe
known as the " Mine-O-Phone."
The installation consisted of iron
water-proof boxes, which, would
have to be. affixed to tlie existing
kjj"'>^ftric light poles. Each box con-
' ilained a phone. In case of fire it
would be necessary to open the
door of the box and ring the alarm
by turning the handle according to
the directions clearly shown over
the box. -
The alarm would ring simultaneously in the power house, the
fire hall and the central telephone
The system would be entirely
independent of the existing telephone system, and would only be
connected with the latter to enable
the telephone staff to take up the
alarm in case of need.
Each box would have a different
signal, so that its position could be
located by the number of short or
long rings. The directions would
be clearly painted above the box,
and would be illuminated by night
with a small electric lamp.
Mr. Millie thought that ten or
twelve boxes would be sufficient at
present, and these with freight
from Chicago, where they are
mads, and duty would cost aoout
$40 each. The wiring would cost
about $300 to $400.
The system had many advantages. It was simple, and could
not well get out of order. It could
be used as an ordinary phone by
the city employees, to communicate
with the power house, and also for
police calls. The cost of maintenance would be slight; the only
thing needed would be the occas-
' ional renewing of the batteries.
The matter was eventually left
over to be discussed in committee.
Aid. Stirling announced that an
offer had been jreceived from W. A.
Mackenzie & Co., of Toronto, of
98 for the $13,500 5 per cent,
debentures recently voted on for
the extension of the water system!
and the re-building of the power
house. He thought it would be
advisable to accept the offer. The
city had been holding off for 98J, J
but in the meantime they, were
paying interest to the bank on
money borrowed for the above
purposes at the rate of 6 per cent,
and to wait a few months for the
higher price would leave .them
about even. He advised, however,
that the offer should be accepted
with accrued interest to date.
Mr. Leckie, who has a taste for
arithmetical comparisons, had
figured that the price of 98 was
10 per cent, better than was realized last January for 6 per cent, debentures, and with one exception,
the highest price ever realized for
the city's bonds.

There was an eclipse of the
moon on Monday night which was
really a fine spectacle. But the
overshadowing of that celestial
body was as nothing to the total
eclipse of all previous efforts
achieved by the Kelowna Musical
and Dramatic Society in their production of the "Mikado." The
preparation for it had been long
and the postponement tiresome
and ' tantalizing, but when the
eventful day did arrive it certainly
surpassed all expectations.
The scenery and dresses were
of the most brilliant description.
The s.cenes both for the courtyard
and Ko Ko's garden are not the
work of an amateur, but of a past-
master in the art of scene painting.
The orchestra are .well up to their
work, and the whole production
went through with a swing from
start to finish. The chorus is fairly
well balanced and the music was
rendered in first-rate style.
As the Mikado, Mr. A. Graham
was a great success, and his song
in the second act was loudly applauded. Mrs. Huycke, with her
charming voice and dainty manner
makes a delightful Yum Yum£
while Miss Coppinger and Miss-
Mabel Wilson as her two sisters'
were distinctly pleasing. j
There is scope for really fine
acting in the part of Katisha, and1
Miss Dorothy Lamb played the
role of disappointed lover to perfection. There was real tragic
force« in her rendering of " Ye
Tempests Roar," in the powerful j
finale to the first act. What a
capital Cleopatra she would make I
As the Lord High Executioner
Bobby Reed was at his best, and
kept the fun going in fine style.
He has added much to his reputation as a clever fun-maker.
Mr. Gil. Hassell acquitted himself well as Nanki Poo, though he
still shows signs of his recent illness. Mr. Albert Ely's fine voice
did full justice to his part of Pish
Tush, while as Pooh Bah, Mr. Geo.
Benmore showed a good deal of
clever originality.
Mr. J. E. Watson, the musical
director, and Mr. Reed, the stage
manager, have good reason to congratulate themselves on the production. I
On Tuesday night there was a
record attendance and the opera
house was packed by the largest
crowd its walls had ever held.
Scores were turned away, unable
to get inside the doors.
On Friday, the society will give
a performance in - ernon, and on
Saturday, by special request, they
are to give a third performance in
the Kelowna Opera House.
Boating Accident on
the Lake
Visitors  From  Vernon
Narrow Escape.
A party of visitors from Vernon
had a narrow escape from drowning on Tuesday afternoon. Mr.
Mc Williams, Mr. Metcalf and Miss
Cooper hired a canoe, and as the
afternoon was fine and the lake
quite smooth, they anticipated an
hour or two of pleasant boating.
They crossed to the other side of
the lake safely enough, but on their
return journey a sudden squall
sprang up and overturned the
canoe. Mr. Mc Williams managed
to stick to the boat and kept himself afloat in that way. Miss
Cooper and Mr. Metcalf were both
good swimmers, especially Miss
Cooper, but they were hampered
by their clothing, and the dullness
ofthe water.
Mrs.  John  Milligan,   who   was
watching for their retiirn, witnessed the accident,-and drew the attention of Mr. Claude James to it.
The  latter at  once  set  out in a
motor boat, accompanied by Mr.
Bell and Mr. Leeny. They succeeded  in  rescuing  Mc Williams,  and
Mr. W. B. M. Calcer, who had also
gone out in his boat, caught Mr.
Metcalf just as he was sinking for
the third time.   In  the  meantime,
the Hart brothers, in a row boat,
reached Miss Cooper and held her
up until Claude James got around
with  his launch   and   took    her
.aboard.    Both Miss Cooper and
Metcalf were   unconscious   when
.rescued.  They.were taken with all
speed   to  the   Royal   Hotel' and
[.medical aid summoned. Dr. Boyce,
Dr. Huycke,  Dr.  Keller and  Dr.
Williams of Vernon, were soon on
the scene,  and  by   their   united
efforts succeeded in restoring them
to consciousness. McWilliams, who
had held on to fhe canoe, was not
much worse, but both Miss Cooper
and Metcalf had a very narrow
escape, and in the opinion of those
who saw them, another minute or
two in the water would rendered
life extinct.   They were so far recovered next morning as to be able
to return to Vernon.

In the original estimates a sum
of $750 was requested for painting
and repairing the Central School
building and fence. Also a sum of
$300 for new desks and seats for
school. The latter item was dropped altogether, and by omitting the
painting the former was reduced to
$300, thus reducing the total sum
required by $750.
It had not been the intention of
the school trustees to finish the
upper storey of the new building,
but it had since been decided that
it would be advisable to do so, and
it was therefore necessary to raise
more money for that purpose. The
sum required would be $2,986.80.
By-law No. 74, to raise the sum
of $3000 to " complete the erection
of buildings for school purposes,"
had been prepared, and on the
motion of Aid. L&ckie, seconded
by Aid. Stirling, was read a first
Conttaaad-on pw 2.
At the recent Conference in
Nelson a great many changes took
place in the pastorates of churches
in the Okanagan as well as' in other parts of the province. The following are the stations and pastors
of this District:—

Vernon—Rev. Jno. Robson B.A.
Kelowna—Rev. J. W. Davidson

The Rev. J. W. Davidson, B.A.
BD., of the Montreal Conference
has accepted the invitation of the
Kelowna Methodists, and will probably arrive to take up- his duties
about June 1st.
Tbe Lacrosse Match was to have
been played on the Recreation
Grounds, but after an inspection
the Vernon captain decided that it
was still too rough for their liking,
and- accordingly an adjournment
was made to Boyce's field. There
was some doubt as to whether this
course would be acceptable to
those wbo had paid for seats in
the grand stand, but as the teams
refused .to play anywhere else,
there was no help for it.
At about a quarter to five the
teams lined up as follows

Paly started in fast .and furious,
the Vernon team getting quickly
down to business. Cowan made
a successful shot at the goal within the first five minutes, and the
visiting team showed a fine combination, evidently the result of
much practise, and their score rapidly rose, putting three • goals to
their credit before the end of the
first quarter, Kelowna having scored one.
Play soon began to be a little
rough, and several minor accidents
occurred, the worst of which was
a nasty cut on the head received
by C. G. Fuller. The hurt, though
hot serious, bled freely, and he
had to be taken over to Dr. Huyke's
At the commencement of the
last quarter, the score stood 5 to 2
in favor of Vernon. The Kelowna
boys had now got warmed up, and
during the next ten minutes did
some really remarkable work, scoring wo goals in quick time, but too
late,,the score at finish, being 6-4,
Kelowna had a big day on the
24th. With ideal weather conditions
and a splendid programme of sports
the large crowd which assembled
at the Recreation Grounds including large numbers of visitors from
all. points in the valley, certainly
enjoyed themselves to the full.
The Grounds are gradually being
fixed in fine shape, and now that
the A. & T. Association by a ten
year lease are taking things into their
own hands again, with the intention
of spending considerable sums of
money on improvements, Kelowna
will soon be able to boast of having one of the finest recreation
grounds in the province.
The morning events opened
soon after ten o'clock and some
good races were witnessed, the
entries being good, and the interest
never flagging from start to finish.
The members of the committee
acting as judges with T. McQueen
as starter.
In the first race of 75 yards, for
Boys of 14 and under the first prize
of $ 1 ,was won by A. Raymer; the
second prize of 50c, Pfyffer; third
prize of 25c, Sutherland.
In the 50 yard race for Boys 10
and under, first prize, 75c. D. Mills;
second prize, 50c, J. Baker; third
prize, 25 c, I. Mills.
50 yard race for Girls 14 and
under, first prize $1, Mary Cox;
second, 50c, Mildred Russell; third,
25 c, Laura Russell.
50 yard race for Girls 1.0 and
under, first prize, 75c, Amy Flemming ; second, 50c, Mary Mills;
third 25c, Pfyffer.
100 yards Open Race there were
nine entries, the first prize of $5
going to G. N. Kennedy, whose
time was 11 sec; second, $2.50,
L. Carsorso.
The Sack Race as usual created
considerable amusement. There
were seven entries; and the first
prize of $2.50 was easily won by W.
Kruger; second, $1, J. McMillan.
To give the youngsters a chance
an extra Sack Race was added to
the programme, restricted to boys
16 and under. Nine entered, Geo.
Swordy winning first prize; sec,
Geo. Munford; third, A. Weddell.
' The 220 yards Open Race was
an interesting event, G. N. Kennedy
again carrying off first prize of $5,
L. Carsorso coming in second,$2.50.
The winning time was 25| seconds.
The Hop, Step and Jump is more
difficult to achieve than it looks
and many of the contestants failed
because of their inability to make
the proper movements. W. Kruger
won first, $3, covering a distance
of 37 feet 5_ inches. Charlie Alex
was second, $2, with 36 feet 5 ins.
The latter could hop like a kangaroo, but lost ground on the step
and jump. ■
W. Kruger and Charlie Alex
were also the winners of the first
prize, $3, in the Three-legged Race,
G. N. Kennedy and Angus McMillan being second, $2.
Half-mile Open, Geo. Stirling
first prize,.$5; E. G. Fuller, $2.50.
Winning time, 2 minutes and 30
In the Hurdle Race five started
for the final heat, G. N. Kennedy
being first, $5, and Charlie Alex
second, $2.50.
There were only three entries
for the Bicycle Race, R. D. Fraser
winning first, $5, and Geo. Black-
man second, $2.50, P. Dunn dropping out the second time' round.
This closed 'the, events for the
morning and a stampede was at
once made for refreshment.
In the afternoon the attendance
was augmented by the arrival of the
"Aberdeen " bringing a crowd of
visitors. Rigs of all kinds poured
in from the country and when the
horse races commenced the stand
waa full and the space around was
fairly well crowded.
' The entries were not quite so
good as in the morning, but considering that only local horses were
present some good races were
The Half-mile Buggy Race
called off as no one seemed inclined to match his pacer against Mr.
Copeland's " R.A.C."
The Half-mile Tandem Race had
three entries. A good start was
made, and the running was exceedingly close round the whole course.
The first prize $10 went to AlberSi
and the second of $5 to P. Carsorso.
In the Quarter-mile Dash the
entries were G. K. Smith's " Fancy
Me," Dr. Richard's [' Pinky," G. K.
L. Pyman's "Polly," and-R. Lam-
bly's " Little Willie." Dr. Richard's
horse riden by A. Weddell got in
first ($15) with Pyman's " Polly " a
close second ($7.50)
The Lacrosse Relay Race be-'
tween Vernon and Kelowna was
something of a novelty. A Vernon
and a Kelowna man were stationed
at intervals around the course. The
first pair start together each handing a handherchief to the man on
his own side as soon as he reaches
him. Vernon held the lead until
the third relay was reached when
Harold Glenn saved the situation
for Kelowna by closing up the gap
and handing the handkerchief to
G. N. Kennedy who finished some A 77
distance ahead. 7 A_
The cowboy race  is always a ;:i; • 7
popular event.   In  this case 'the 7:A
contestants had   to saddle :. their• 7
horses, mount, and  ride around     A

distance apart.   The  turning was. 7:7.1

was won by Bessette, L. Carsarso, 7 A
second, $5. 7.
The   entries   for'the half-mile
Open were Dr. Richard's "Pinky,"   -
E.  G.  Fuller's "Don   E."  Q.  K.     f
Smith's "Fancy Me," and a horse     ',
belonging to McDonald of Rudand :
which had no name and was christened  "Jumbo" for the occaasion.
A good start was made, and excit-
ing contest was witnessed, Fuller's     7
horse finishing first with " Pinky"" 7
close  behind and "Jumbo" third.     7
An Automobile Race   was   to
have been run next between Dr.    7
Williams and Mr. H. Gregg of Vernon.   This would have been interesting as.the first automobile Race  7
in Kelowna.   Dr. Williams how-   ,:
ever retired from the contest.   7
The Tug of War,- too, failed to    A
materialize. ' The fire brigade boys;   v
were to have been matched against   Ai
a " police team" chosen from those     ■..
who bad at any rime donemuty ^"Ai^
policemen   in   the city, but the
"bobbies" seemed to be such husky
felloWs as to make the contest too

A draft of the lease of the site in
the park to the Aquatic Association
was handed to Aid. Jones for consideration.
Aid. Cox asked if it was the intention of the council to hire Mr.
Brunette again this year to look
after the gasoline fire engine.
There had been much dissatisfaction expressed, he said, at the
council spending $100 a year for
that purpose.
Aid. Jones understood that this
year it would not be necessary, as
some members of the brigade were
now able to look after it.
A few sarcastic remarks were
levelled at the engine. It seems as
though that unfoitunate piece* of
mechanism can never be mentioned without calling forth facetious
remarks from someone. And yet,
as some of the aldermen pointed
out it could hardly be said to have
had fair trial. At fires where it had
been taken, frenzied amateurs had
" monkeyed " with it, turning valves
the wrong way and even wrenching parts off in their excitement.
Mayor Sutherland said that a
gasoline engine was a tickleish
thing to run at any time. The
trouble with this one was that it
was not run in the way its makers
had originally intended it to be. It
had been designed to start with a
torch, a system in which a small
vessel is filled with gasoline and
lighted. But electric batteries had
been fitted. The batteries did not
belong to the machine, and were
the source of most of the trouble.
If the torch had been used instead
of the batteries there would have
been no difficulty in starting it up.
The clerk was instructed to inform Mr. Brunette that his services
would not be required.
Aid. Cox asked what was to be
done with the " open cistern" at
the corner near the new Presbyterian church.
The mayor said that it would be
filled as soon as they had a hydrant
fixed and in working order at that
The meeting was then adjourned
until Monday next. May 30.
I will venture to lay down four
rules, which, I believe, contain the
secret of complete success.
First, there must be no punishment connected with the act of jumping which might associate the act
with pain.
Secondly, progress should be from
the crossing of obstacles, such as a
log laid on the ground, so small that
tlie idea of hesitation cannot arise,
and thence by imperceptibly increasing steps to larger jumps.
Thirdly, perfection in jumping
from a stand or walk must be attained before -fast jumping is attempted.
And, fourthly, perfection in slow
jumping must be attained in "long
reins" before a rider is carried over
a fence.
The "long reins" used at this
stage should be very long, that is,
30 or 35 yards each, and, of course,
disconnected. They should be of
light, round plaited (not twisted)
rope, which runes easily through the
hands, and is not liable to coil and
entangle the instructor. A leading
rein should be carried by a helper in
case it may be necessary; and as
soon as the obstacles become large
enough to require real jumping, an
experienced horse to show what is
required is an invaluable assistance.
An example goes a long way towards
revealing to the pupil what is required, and how it should be done.
The time to begin riding a young
horse over fences should be regulated by two considerations. Proficiency in the long reins should be
such that the increased efforts demanded shall neither over-strain nor
weary him. To avoid the risk of his
refusing his task, a beginning should
be made, as before, with obstacles
which can be walked over, and progress to stiffer ones should, if anjT-
thing, be more gradual than in the
earlier stage.—"Patricy Perterras,"
in "Baily's Magazine."
Many people make the mistake of
using court plaster over a cut. The
plaster closes the wound prematurely, preventing the natural cleansing
of the wound and the egress of any
particles of dirt which may have
entered. It also keeps the edges
moist, encouraging the pus formation.
In the treatment of a cut do not
be in too much of a hurry to stop the
bleeding. Unless an artery is severed,
which becomes evident by the
forcible spurting of the blood, there
is no need of haste. Each movement
of free bleeding, as the "Family
Doctor" points out, aids in rendering
the wound antiseptic, as the blood
coming from within cleanses the
wound better than any other application.
After free bleeding has been allowed for a few minutes let a stream
of hot water, which has previously
been boiled, run over the wound.
This will cleanse the edges and check
the bleeding.
Givers and Takers Are the Two Great
Divisions   of   Mankind.
The world of Immunity is divided
into two classes—those who give and
thoce who receive. Tlie perfect wo-
matt is she who under, tands how to
receive as well ii:. 'iow to give, who is
as graceful in ;r- ntunce as she is in
"I am sorry f-.i: -l.;.it girl," said a
friend of mine, with whom I had been
discussing people in general, and a
very charming young girl in particular, at whose coining out celebration
we had both been present the afternoon before.
"Why do you say such a thing?" I
asked in some surprise. "To me she
has always seemed to belong to the
highly-favored class of mortals that
the gods have exempted from the ordinary cares of humanity."
"It is not n question of environment,' was the answer, "but of temperament. She will always give'more
than she receives. Emotional, sensitive and impulsive, the very qualities
that render her so attractive, are
those that must bring her sorrow. A
girl of her type must eternally be at,
a disadvantage with the world around
her, on whom she squanders her sympathy and tenderness in vain."
"But," said I hesitatingly, "such a
nature as you describe finds compensation in the mere joy of giving. If
the sensitive and emotional suffer
keenly, they also enjoy keenly. It is
natural for such a type to express itself lavishly without a thought of recompense deserved, or looked forward
to. Like the sunshine and' sweet air
and the perfume of flowers, the temperamental giving out is impartial and
the act blesses the giver."
"Then you are making literal appli- '
cation of the wisdom that 'it is more
blessed to give than  to  receive.'   Is
that   what  you   are   trying   to   bring'
home to me?" inquired my friend.
"Not altogether," I said, "for people differ widely, and it seems to me
that the blessing is broad enough to
benefit both classes. Isn't it right for
the flowers to open their petals to the
kiss of the sun? Isn't it equally so
for the two classes—those who give
and those who receive. The perfect
woman is she who understands how to
receive as well as how to give, who is
as graceful in acceptance as she is in
"If she understands and appreciates
aright, the joy of giving for herself
should she, through herself, be unwilling to deny that joy to others?
From the smiles which come naturally to her lips, even to the bestowal
of her own dear self, a woman thrills
to the joy of giving. It makes as
much or more the happiness of her
life as her joy i_. receiving."—Mary

A Rejected Novel.
Before he had achieved fame the
French novelist Xavicr de Montepin,
on concluding a long and elaborate
tale of adventure, took it, full of hope,
to a publisher, who promptly-declined
it on even the most advantageous
terms, to the writer's poignant mortification. , Twenty years afterward this
identical publisher besought at hia
hands a sensational story, one of those
•eru-f which were the delight of gris-
ettes, offering any price within reason. "Well," said De Montepin,-"I
will oblige you, but my terms must be
very heavy. I want 20,000 francs."
After many protests it was paid. In
telling the story De Montepin used
to add, "The best of the business was
that it was the very same story which
he had previously rejected and which
I had in various directions endeavored
in vain to dispose of."
Church Encouragement of Sport.
Ecclesiastic recognition has been
given the sport of skeeing in Norway
in the special short, early services
held in all the churches during the
season for the convenience of skeera.
These services are called skeeing prayers, and a stranger coming into the
sacred edifices on such an occasion
might think he had blundered into the
barracks of a skee corps. However,
the services are much liked and very
well attended, and there is no difference of opinion about the wisdom of
the church authorities in thus encouraging a sport making so strongly for
healthy bodies and therefore going a
long way toward making healthy

"Salted" by Mr. Salting.
Here is a story of the late Mr. Salting, the great collector, who was very
"near," to put it mildly, in all matters
of ordinary life. He bought at an
auction a case of old vintage champagne. One of his friends, who heard
of this, so worried Mr. Salting concerning the matter that St last ne
asked eight men to dine with, him and
to drink the wine, giving them a long
invitation. All eight accepted, but before the date of the feast each received
a letter saying that Mr. Salting had
received a very favorable offer to sell
the wine, that he had accepted the bid
and that the dinner," therefore, would
not take place.—London Tit-Bits.
Died by Order.
After the battle of Custozza a soldier supposed to have been killed was
entered on the books of his company:
"Died on the 24th of June, 1866,"
^A few days nfterward it turned out
that he was still alive, arid the honest -
sergeant made the following entry:
"Died by mistake."

It Qcts a Jolt From One Who Never
Can  Be on Time.
So much i_ said about ttye virtue of
punctuality that pSbple Who go in for:
it to any great, extent are exceedingly
uppish and disagreeable. Punctuality
has its bad side, just as everything
else has. People should.remember
this. If they are on .time they only
serve to throw into embarrassing relief the poor §(julb who come hurrying m ten minutes late. It is smug
to be precisely punctual; -It: i_ raisirig
yourself above ihe rest, of mankind,
refusing to partake in its frailties. The
ideal thing from the point of view .of
courtesy to other- and recent humility'
about your own attainments'.is to be
always ten minutes late or. at; least to
appear so. £
If you are to -meet at the package-
office in the Grand Central station
at 4 o'clock sit quietly in the middle of
the hall until twelve minutes after
four; then when you have seen the
other person dash up, followed by
panting porters and fairly dripping
with explanations, wait upjbil the arrival has had a second in which to
recover self-respect and stroll up with
a remark on Timbuktu or the best way
to cultivate carrots. This will insure
your popularity and show you to be a
person of kindness und forethought.
At any rate, it is better than a' pitiless standing at the place where you
said you would be, your superiority
increasing every minute, and confronting, 'upbraiding silently, the
person who promised to meet you because you- appeared a rather likeable
sort, but who finds you in your panoply of punctuality the very reverse of
likeable.     ;. •"
For be it remembered that just as
some people cannot be on time others
cannot to save their skins be late. So
that they deserve not a whit of credit
for it and should, in fact, be reprimanded when they* do if ostentatiously and in public.
Dead  Calm  They  Average
Eight Miles an Hour. • ■■]
My observations were made with
mallard and1 widgeon just off the sea
and coming in at the evening flight,
such birds not having got fully under
way, having traveled only about two
miles or a mile and a half, according
to the state of the tide. The times
varied from 101-2'miles an hour in
the teeth of a hurricane to 190 miles
an hour with half a gale driving" them
forward, their speed with a full gale,
being below this. 0
In a dead calm tjiey averaged;, fifty-
eight miles an hour; but, as I have
mentioned, they were, not traveling at
top speed. Other species of duck-fly
much faster than this, the speed of a
merganser going down wind being
something terrific, and if I mentioned
my rough calculations made as to its
speed, with a stiff breeze behind it
no one would believe me, so I will
refrain from doing so.
One day in March, when a fresh
breeze was blowing down, the Holy
Sound, in Orkney, mergansers vera

as the goldeneye, fly at an enormoq*
velocity. v
, The speed at- which birds are traveling is very deceptive; < For instance,
swallows appear to be going very fast,
but rarely attain a, speed of thirty

He was, indeed, no fair weather lover, and the storm and stress made him

Armour In \^ar. ^
Waterloo was the last great battle
in which bodily armor was used, Napoleon's caValry using it, and up to
that time with dome success,' but in
the, charges there made his iron
sheathed cuirassiers went down like
rows of pins before the quick-moving
English horse dashing in upon them
■with only naked swords and naked
arms. Pavia (1525) was the first fight
in which troops in large numbers were
armed with the more efficient musket,
while artillery had already been'employed at Crecy (1346), and it was
only a matter of time for the new
agent, gunpowder, to knock out the
man at arms. The "mailed barons"
had no show before the new and ter*'
rible invention of firearms.

moved her arm too near the candle,
andyher muslin dress was in flames In

heads, however.. The husband extinguished the fire and, proceeding with

The Orchard City Record.
Thursday, May 26
According to news brought south by the
Camosum the prtnciple of trades unionism
has apparently taken hold of the Indians
of the Skeena River, for they have decided
that $50 a month and board, and even $55
is too small a sum for a decent self-respect-
ing Indian to earn. At the close of the
season of river navigation last year they
pushed the wages for Indian deckhands
up to $55 a month, &nd this was granted
as the season Was nearly closed. Encouraged by this they have recently held
meetings and decided that they will not
work for a less sum than $60, even though
they had previously engaged for $55.
They sent notices of their decision to the
steamboat owners a short time ago, and
this was followed by the following
ultimatum :
Port Simpson, B. C.
Capt Gardner:
Dear Sir.—We, the young people of
Port Simpson, held a meeting on April 11,
1910, and have decided and agreed not to
work on the H. B. boats, and also Foley,
Welch & Stewart's boat, unless the wages
are raised to sixty dollars per month.
(Signed)   JOHN NELSON, Chairman,
J. RYAN, Secretary.
The Hudson - Bay Company and Foley,
Welch & Stewart at once engaged a corn,
petent white crew to do the work which
the Indians had formerly done, and these
were glad to do it for $50 a month, so the
Indians will have to find other fields of
labour for. the present season.
While fishing occupies prominent positions in the May number of Rod and Gun
in Canada, published by W. J. Taylor,
Woodstock, Ont., there is no lack of variety, articles appealing to sportsmen of all
tastes appearing in this issue. Anglers
who are arranging their spring outings will
find ample provision for their entertainment and will revel in the stories of good
fishing trips told by their furtunate brethren. Mr. Bonnycastle Dale's studies of
Wild Ducks in Canada will interest a vast
number of people, and the sportsmen particularly will find their knowledge of a
fine btrd much increased by a perusal of
this article. Catching kids of Mountain
Goats and White Water Men of St. Maurice
are stories none should miss. Big game
hunting and protective work receive much
attention, while camping and mountaineering have their delights pleasantlypictured.
For variety and interest the number is excellent throughont and sportsmen should
see to it that a copy accompanies them on
every trip.
How the Petals and Juice of the Poppy
Plant Are Procured.
Opium growing is a sort ol garden
cultivation, U_e poppy plants being
grown ln little squares or beds Intersected by tiny water channels for irrigation wherever this is possible. The
growth ot the plants Is carefully tended, and at length the time comes when
they burst out Into flower, aud the
fields look like a sheet of sliver as the
white petals of tbe flowers glisten In
the morning dew.
These beautiful petals are the first
produce of the crop, for the women
aud children of tbe cultivators' fa mi
lies come forth and pick them off one
by one and carefully dry them, so thai
they may serve afterward as the cov
erlng of tbe manufactured cakes of
opium. Then the popples, wltb their
bare capsule beads, remain standing
ln tbe open field until It Is considered
that they are ripe for lancing. Tbe
cultivators then come forth ln the
evening, and witb an implement not
unlike tbe knives of a cupping instrument they scarify tbe capsule on its
sides wltb deep Incisions, so that the
Juice may exude.
In the early morning the cultivators
reappear witb a scraping knife and
their earthenware pots, and tbey
scrape off the exuded Juice and collect
it in their pots. And this is crude
opium.—Blackwood's Magazine.

Kipling has in the "Standard" a poem
entitled " The Dead King," the argument
of which ia summed up in the line: "Our
King asks nothing of any man more than
our King himself has done." The concluding- stanza is. as follows:
We accepted   his toil as our right; none
spared, none excused him ;
When he was bowed by his burden his
. his rest was refused him.
.We troubled his age; with our weakness,;
the blacker our shame.
When he heard that his people  had need
of him, straightway he came.
As he received so he gave, nothing grudged, naught denying.
For our sakes  without  question   he  put
from him all that he cherished.
Simply as any  other  servant,   he  served
and he perished.
All that kings covet was his, and   he flung
it aside for us.
Simply as any that died in his service, he
died for us."
The poet in an envoi bids him, " Who in
the realm today has choice of easy road or
hard to tread, and, " Would sell his soul to
remain in jhe sun, to depart nor love on
our dead."
Preparations are being made for the
yearly series of British Columbia fruit and
other products in the chief centres of the
prairie provinces, Toronto, London, and at
the principal exhibitions in the old country.
The prairie exhibitions at which British
Columbia will this season be represented
are those to be held at Brandon, Regina,
Saskatoon, Medicine Hat and Edmonton,
beginning with Brandon, from July 25 to
29. It was the intention of the department
to show also at Winnipeg, but space could
not be had at the Manitoba capital. The
provincial exhibits " on circuit" will this
season be in the charge .of Mr. £. Bullock-
Webster, who will have with him as first
assistant Mr. W. J. Brandrith of Ladner,
-who also was with Deputy Minister Scdtt
last year in a similar . capacity. Both
gentlemen have had long experience as
farmers and fruit growers in this province.
From the North West centres, the British
Columbia exhibits will go to the Toronto
Industrial, and thence direct to London.
In connection with the application made
to the. government some weeks ago by an
influential deputation representing the
moving spirits in the' first Canadian
National Apple Show, to be held at Vancouver in November, it has been decided
by the executive, after careful consideration
that the government does not see its way
at present to making any grant in assistance
of the project as requested. The delegation asked for $19,000, a similar promotion
grant having been asked of the Dominion
Government, and the City of Vancouver
haying pledged $6000.
A unique tribute was paid by the Canadian Pacific Railway Company to the
memory of King Edward on the day of
the King's funeral. When 3 o'clock arrived in Montreal on Friday afternoon
work on the entire Canadian Pacific system from coast to coast stopped for three
minutes. The hour of three o'clock in
Montreal corresponds with the time the
cortege left Westminster Hall.
Three British shipbuilding firms have
advised the department of marine of their
readiness to establish yards in Canada for
the construction of the ships of the Can-

not definite, and until tenders are received
the relative cost of construction here and
in Great Britain will not be known or a
final decision reached as to where the
work will be done,

And let it rip and tear around
It's orbit big—the comet!

W.C. T.U. Notes.
Conducted by the Ladies of the ICelcwna branch
of the W.C. T. U.
The W.C. T. U. meet every second Tuesday of the month at the home of one or
other of the members. Visitors are always
Boys sometimes think that while the
cigar and pipe may both be bad, no harm
can come from so small a thing as a cigarette. That is a great mistake. Through
cigarettes alone many boys have been
stunted in growth, have been made so
nervous that the hand trembled, and have
weakened their brain power till they could
no longer keep up with their grades at
school. In many instances, too, these were
boys who before using cigarettes had led
their classes.
Dr. C. A. Clinton of the San Francisco
Board of Education, says:
" Cigarette smoking stunts the whole nature. It has an appalling effect on the
whole system. It stupifies the nerves. It
sends boys into consumption. It gives them
enlargement of the heart, and it sends
them into the asylum."
• Dr. Lewis A. Sayre pronounces cigarettes
to be worse for boys than pipes or cigars,
and paper cigarettes than tobacco cigarettes,
perhaps because the paper absorbs more
of the nicotine. A physician who had a
strong suspicion that cigarettes werenot
as harmless they were claimed to be had
one analyzed. The tobacco was found to
be strongly impregnated with opium,
while the wrapper, warranted to be rice
paper, proved to be common paper whitened over with arsenic.
A chemist in New York City purchased
from prominent a dealer a dozen packages
of the highest-priced cigarettes. Those he
sent for analysis to an eminent chemist in
another State, and was astounded by his
report of the quantity of opium found in
these standard brands.
A young man exhibited signs of heart
disease, the pulsations sometimes almost
ceasing, and again so accelerated that he
could scarcely catch his breath, and seemed on the point of dying. On consulting
a doctor he was told that these symtoms
came from the use of cigarettes, and on
banishing them his health was retored.
^An eminent doctor says: "' We look upon the cigarette as the leading demoralization of the last twenty-five years." According to the Philadelphia Times, several
leading physicians of that city "unanimously condemn cigarette smoking as one of
the vilest and most destructive evils that
ever befell the youth of our country : declaring that "its direct tendency being the
deterioration of the race." One of these
physicians affirms that within a single week
he had two patients who had been made
blind by cigarettes.
Out of 412 boys examined by the naval
enlisting officer (Peoria 111.) only 114 "were
accepted..c;'Of the 298 rejections the greater number were on account of weak
hearts, and in the majority of cases this
was caused by cigarette smoking.
Swift & Co. and other Chicago business
houses employing hundreds of boys have
issued this announcement or a similar one;
" So impressed are we with the danger of
cigarette using that we will not employ a
cigarette user."
In John Wanamaker's stores the application blank to be filled out by the boys applying for a position reads. "Do you use
tobacco or cigarettes;" A negiti. e answer is
favorable to their acceptance as employees.
Ayers Sarsaparilla • Company, Lowel,
where hundreds of boys are employed:
"March I, 1902. Believing that the smoking of cigarettes is injurious to mind and
body, thereby udfitting young men for
their best work—therefore, after this date,
we will not employ any young man under
twenty-one years of age who smokes cigarettes."
The assistant general manager of ihe
Cumberland telephone and Telegraph Company has issued the following order:
" You are directed to serve notice that
the use of cigarettes after August 1st, will
be prohibited; and you are further instructed to, in the future, refuse to employ any
one addicted to the habit."
The Pittsburg and Western Railroad forbids the use of cigarettes by the attaches
to passenger trains, and notifies travellers
that they must not smoke cigarettes in the
passenger coaches of the company.
On the West Superior, Wisconsin Railroad, twenty-five laborers, working on a
bridge, were discharged by the roadmaster
because they were smoking cigarettes.

It   Is   Far   More   Funny   Because
Is   Unconsciaus.
Like the best.humor of other kinds,
tlie hilmor of the sign is of the un-
oonscious variety. Those who create
jfctre not aware of the fact that they
are adding to the gaiety of nations by
their productions, or it may be that
their own sense of humor is too blunted for them to know it when they
are amusing. The man who put out
the following sign wr.s surely versatile, and yet a sense of humor was
not among his gifts or he must have
seen its absurdity.    £
"High Class Music furnished here
for Concerts, Receptions, Bawls, and
Partys.   Also Chairs Caned."
Equally wi<ie was the range of accomplishments of the woman who
set in one of her front windows a
card bearing this information:
"Music Lessons, also High Class
Washing done Here. Doughnuts for
Sale Wensday and Satterdays."
Though not strictly ' an advertisement, the following may not be out
of place here as its purpose is to
give information in regard to a saleable article. A writer in The Strand
Magazine says he found it on a bottle'erf tomato sauce:
"Tomato Sauce. . The sauce are
pur. The flavor are terrific. Hope
not to think imitation as good as us
sauce. We haven't put nothing but
nice tomatoe in sauce which give us
such terrific flavor. One taste will
have more. Januwala and Co Main
Road Taiping Straits Settlements."
Tho summer visitors in a New
England rural district got no little
fun out of a sign in a berry pasture
near the public highway:
"Berry picking on these, preniis
forbid. Trespassing persecuted.
Berrys for sail at house above. Keep
out. Eggs and chickens also for sail.
Washing and* fine ironing."
In one of the suburbs of Boston
there was in a small store a window
full of the most surprising landscapes, painted china, wash basins,
rolling pins, flower pieces, and mirrors. A card had on it these words:
v. "Miss Blank, Artist. She done
these. Lessons inside, 50 cents.
Lessons outside, 75 cents. .All kinds
of painting did to order. Also Are
Millinery.    Come in."
One "will often find some hilarious
signs in the new mining camps of
the West. The humor of these is
none the less amusing because it is
intentional. Visitors to one of the
camps a few years ago were delighted to find the following before the
door of a log cabin about ten by
fourteen feet in size:
"Dehnonioo's Hotel and Rest-your-
aunt. Rooms with or without Bawth.
No objection to poodle dogs or infants in arms if accompanied' by
their.parents. Elevator not running.
Barber shop and mannycure rooms
closed for repairs. Turkish bawths a
la washtub."       •
Nailed to another cabin was a pine
board on which one read:
"Bored and Lodging. Day Bored.
Call In."
. One of the leading dance and concert halls in the early days of Lead-
ville displayed every Sunday thi_
"Grand Sacred Concert and Free
B*noe Here To-night."
A woman o_ versatilty in a Western town put in one of her windows
a card on which she made the following interesting announcement:
','Art Painting Taut Here. AUso
Fansy Dancing and Fansy Embrod-
ery. Millinary. Masag'. Corns Cut.
Fansy Hare Dressing. Table Boarders. Vokel Singing. Cooking Lessons
Mid General Art Work."
A man who had gone into the
chicken business on an. extensive
scale put up a large sign by the roadside, on which he made the following announcement to the general
public: A
"Powltry for Sale. Setting Eggs.
Broylers. Ginny Hens. Fancy Fouli
Eggs and powltry" supplied To Private families. Satisfaction Guaranteed."
The Compass In China.
It is generally admitted that the
Chinese used the compass at a very
early period to guide them in their
journeys across the vast plains of Tar-
tary. They made little images, the
arms of which, moved-by a freely suspended magnet, pointed continually
toward the north. An apparatus of
this kind was presented to ambassadors from Cochin China to guide them
on their homeward journey some 1,100
years before the Christian era. The
knowledge thus possessed seems gradually to have traveled westward by
means of the Arabs, though it was
over 2,000 years afterward before
it was generally applied among the
peoples of western Europe.
A Canadian .farmer noted tor hia.
absentmindedness went to town; one
day and transacted his business with
the utmost precision. He started on
his way hoihe, however, with the firm
conviction that he had forgotten something, but what it was he could not
recall. Aa he neared home the convio-
tion increased, and three times he
stopped his horse and went carefully
through his pocketbook in a vain endeavor to discover what he had forgotten. In due (course he reached
home and waB met by his daughter,
who looked at him in surprise and
exclaimed, "Why, father, where have
you left mother?"
Refined Politeness.
In an outward bound Boston car the
other evening there was not a seat
left. A lady entered, and not a man
noticed her standing, apparently. Finally one man rose from his seat and
offered it to the lady. She thanked
him, adding, "You are the only gentleman in the car."
She was startled by the answer,
"Yer botcher life I am, kiddo."

(From our own correspondent.)
Mr. Pike, who has been in charge
of the Methodist Church at Rutland for the past 6 months, will
hold a farewell service next Sunday. He has been appointed by
the stationing committee to Slocan
City, and will be leaving for his
new field next Thursday. During
his short stay with us he has made
many friends, who wish him success.
A large party of Rutlanders took
a rest from the strenuous life, and
drove up to Wood's Lake on the
24th. They thoroughly enjoyed
the change of scenery and the
pleasures of pic-nicing by the lakeside. Those who took part in the
baseball game have reason to remember the unwonted exertion in
making the home runs. Although
some got wet coming home, everybody welcomed the irrigation which
hits the high spots.

But After Awhile tho Young Man Made

As tbe young man entered the old
man looked up and scowled.
"Well?" said the old man shortly.
"Your daughter"-- began the young
man, but the old man cut him off abruptly.
"I've noticed that you've been hanging around here a good deal," he said.
"1 suppose that yon've come to tell
me that you love her and want to
marry her?"
"No." replied the young man calmly.
"I've, come to tell you that she loves
me and wants to marry me."
"What?" roared the old man.
"She says so herself," persisted the
young man.
"i never heard of such an exhibition

old man.
"Then you misunderstand me," explained the young man. "My assertion
Is dictated by policy and not by Impertinence.   Eon see, If s just this way.

would be for me to come to you and

both see that there wasn't one chance

she wanted, no matter what the cost
might be, and that perhaps It would
be a good plan to change the usual
order somewhat We sort of felt that
it wouldn't be.right to ask you to do
anything for me, but Ifs different In
her case., as 1 remarked before. So
I'm here merely as ber agent to say
that she wants me and that she wants
me very much and to ask you to please
see that she gets me. She never has
wanted anything so much as sue
wants me. and 1 am so favorably disposed toward ber that If you care to

Major H. A. Perry, commanding the
Vernon, B. C, Horse, late Okanagan
Mounted Rifles, passed away at Mr.
Osborne's residence on the Vernon
road. Major Perry took a keen interest in public affairs, was a member of the Vernon City Council and
very popular. The deceased officer
succumbed to that dread disease,
tuberculosis; a hale and hearty man
he enlisted with the troops in South
Africa for the Boer War, and during
the rigors of that campaign contracted pneumonia,, from which he
never recovered. After the war he
migrated to Manitoba where he was
again attacked^ recovering, he moved
to Vernon, where he enjoyed excellent health until about a year ago,
when stress, and worry undermined
his constitution and the dread disease again took hold of him, he slowly became worse; and early this year
went to Kamloops in the hope that
a change of climate would have its

Senator Depew was asked by a reporter, as he was having his luggage
examined, if he bad brought any
storied back from Europe. The
Senator laughed and replied:
"Well, ln the smoke-room of the
ship I heard an interesting thing
about a Montanan in Chester.
Chester, you know, Is walled. Its]
wide walls, on which you could drive
a horse, are famous. You can circle
the town on them.
"But the Montanan .knew nothing
about Chester. He had. only arrived
in Liverpool that afternoon.. And as
soon as he finished his quaint dinner, he said to the waiter in the
quaint Chester inn: J
" 'What is the best way for me to
amuse myself here for an hour or
two before bedtime?'
" 'Well, sir,' said the waiter, 'It's
a fine evening, the moon Is full, and
I think you'd find a stroll on the
walls most enjoyable.'
"The Montanan, ignorant of the
popular promenade upon the wide
walls of Chester, thought he was
being guyed. He frowned at the
waiter, and said bitterly:
' " 'What do you take me for? A
torn cat?' "—"New . York Tribune."

You will have to act quickly if you wish tp secure a lot in this desirable
sub-division, for it is selling rapidly.   The location  is  ideal,  half-a-mile
from  the  town limits and  one hundred  feet higher, commanding a
beautiful view of the Lake, City, and surrounding country.
The soil is a light loam, with slope sufficient for irrigation and drainage.
Unimproved land, as desirably situated as ours, is selling readily in the
fruit sections of Washington and Oregon for from $650 to $1200 per
acre.   Conditions are changing here;  before you realize it, this land will
have doubled in price.
We advise you to inspect the property at once, and make your selection.
It is going fast. The property has been little more than a week on the
market, and at the end of the week, May 21st, there were but nineteen
lots remaining unsold. Our town is rapidly growing, and it will not be
long before .this property will be practically a part of it, and we feel safe
in saying, the choice residential section.
We might also state that it is the Company's plan to reserve the adjoining
1,000 acres, to be improved and planted out in  one large  orchard  and
retained for itself.

Business Deal Between Potter Palmer
and A. T Stewart.
At the time ol tin- civil war Potter
Palmer was in tit" <n-.\ uoods business
la Chicago, nn- •>. n Z. Leiier and
Marshall Kieni  . working for him
Palmer wasn'i - >>'ii known, but he
had a good reinn.trmi. In the trade,
and he didn't nnve tt> introduce himself when lie i-Hlled on old A T. Stewart to buy some goods After some
flickering they 'agreed upon the price,
aud Palmer calmly said that he would
take about $100,000 worth. It was a
little larger bill than Stewart exactly
eared to sell young Palmer on credit,
but he concluded to make the deal and
told him to come in the next morning
and arrange some Bual details. That
night some big war news came, aud it
didn't require any declaration by the
government to inform every dry goods
man ln the country that the price of
goods would take a big spurt up.
Stewart recognized it as soon as he
had the news, and be immediately
thought of Palmer. He also thought
of the big bill of goods Palmer had
bought of him. It didn't particularly
tickle Stewart, that thought didn't
Hut it required only a few scratches of
his red bead to lis things to bis satisfaction. He would simply tell Palmer
tbat he was sorry, but that he didn't
feel that be could sell sucb a big bill
on credit, and as he knew that Palmer
couldn't raise tbe cash immediately,
why, that would end it, and the sale
would be off. Well, young Palmer
called early, and Stewart greeted him
in his very abruptest manner, telling
him how sorry he was. etc., but really
he didn't think It wise business to extend credit for such an amount
-Just how much does the bill come
to." said young Palmer, seemingly sorrowful-like.
1 ".lust $110,000," Stewart replied, and
then he straightway gulped for breath
as young Palmer drew an immense
pocketbook from his inside vest pocket
and. opening it, counted out 110 thousand dollar bills and. laying them
quietly on Stewart's desk, said: "If-
you will kindly count tbem and give
me a receipt I'll be obliged, as I must
take the nest train home. Ship the
goods soon as you can, and when
you're out our way drop in. Always
glad to see our friends."

Got the Oil King Unconsciously to
Submit to an Interview.
Playwright Eugene Walter is numbered among the newspaper men who
obtained the "first Interview with
John D, Rockefeller." When the First
Interview With Rockefeller club is
formed Mr. Walter will be one ot the
charter members.
This is bow- be managed it: In the
days wben he was a newspaper reporter ln Cleveland Walter was an
extremely youthful looking young
man.. He decided to capitalize his
puerile appearance, for it was not an
easy task- even at that time to get
Rockefeller to say anything. He waa
utterly "improachable," as a colored
man once remarked.
Walter got into the Forest Hill
grounds from the rear and walked
about, looking at the flowers and
shrubbery with an apparent lack of
purpose, just as a boy would.
Rockefeller finally noticed bim gazing' abstractedly at a flower bed and
went up to talk to him.
"Ah, my fine lad," began John D„
"are you fond of flowers?"
"Indeed I am, sir," replied Walter
ln true McGuffey Reader style.
"Well, 1 am always glad to see a
boy who appreciates the beauties of
nature. Would you care to walk over
and look at the pond lilies?"
"Ah, sir, 1 should enjoy that more
than 1 can tell you!"
Thus the conversational Ice was broken, and the youthful visitor was so
enthusiastic over all he saw tbat the
master of Forest Hill passed him out
platitudes for about an hour. The interviewer didn't even have to ask questions.'
Next morning Walter's interview
was the best thing ln the paper.—
