Convention of School Trustees
Delegates Hold Highly Successful Session in Kelowna   -   Mr.
Thos. Lawson Elected President  -. Visitors Entertained
v \ at Banquet by Mayor and Council
The seventh annual convention
of the B. C. .Association' of School
Trustees commenced its sittings in
Kelowna -last Tuesday morning.
The president; Mr. J. C. Robertson,
of Chilliwack, tpok charge of the
proceedings, which were attended
by some sixty or seventy delegates
from all parts of the province.
The meeting was called to order
about 10 a.m., when the mayor of
Kelowna, Mr. D. Wv Sutherland,
delivered an address of welcome
lo the delejgates.
He said that one of the penalties
that men in" public life had to. pay
for occupying such positions was
that they -had .often to appear in
public when they did not want to.
He could'assure them, however,
that on this occasion', it afforded
him very great pleasure indeed to
welcome,them here on Behalf of
the. people -■ bf Kelowna, • and • he
hoped their stay would be an enjoyable one,: and that their work
might be pleasant, useful and in-
, structive. ~   •
He noted with interest--the pr6-
gress in B. C during the twenty-
three years he had. been here, and
particularly the advance during
the past few years. He had no
doubt that this progress was due in
a large measure to the efforts of the
Association.
The convention of school trustees
of this province was in many respects a unique organization. They
had other organizations which _re-
ccitfed some advantage frorr? tiifeir
deliberations, but with them it was
altogether different. Th^re was no
defect advantage to be gained.
-Their object was an altogether unselfish one, and he wished, them*
every success in their work.
-. It was only just beginning to be
realized, continued the mayor, that
they had one of the greatest
."countries in the world.Tand British
Columbia would undoubtedly be
the most important province.. He
hoped that, as a body, they would
use their best endeavours to give
the sons and daughters bf this
province the educational advantages they deserved.
He could not expect to see them
here often in their present capacity,
but in their private capacity he
hoped they would often be here.
He assured them that everything
would be done to make things
pleasant for them while they were
here.
The consideration x>f certain
amendments to the by-laws of the
association followed^ some little
discussion arising over a proposal
to elect life members of the
Association.
In his addre88sfo the convention,
the president said they were grateful tp Kelowna Tor the privilege of
meeting; here.- It Was an evidence
of the city's possibilities and progress that it was able to attract this
convention, and entertain the members as it did. At the same time
it was good for Kelowna, and there
could be no better advertising for
this beautiful valley than the
intelligent and truthful reports that
ihe.members would carry away to
every part of the province.
"" He referred to the great progress
of education in the province, which
was'full of encouragement for the
future. It was a matter of great
satisfaction that the 'Association
were doing so much good work in
the province arid that the government were recognising their efforts.
. Before retiring from the pqsition
of president of the Association he
' desired to acknowledge the valuable
and ready assistance rendered him
and the great honor done him, an
lionor which he assured, them he
highly appreciated.
Mr. W. E. Flumerfelt, of Vancouver, gave a report of his.visit as
delegate to the Alberta School
Trustees' Convention, sin interesting
epitome of the proceedings at that
,h«ild last January at Lethbridge.
In his concluding remarks he referred to the benefits of an interchange of ideas from one province
to another.
Afternoon Session
The afternoon session opened
with, an address by Professor
Sawyer, of Okanagan. College,
Summerland. Professor Sawyer is
an enthusiast in matters pertaining
to the province of British Columbia
and the Okanagan Valley irt particular. He' spoke, of the great
resources with 'which--'nature had
endowed this land: of ours. With
increase of communication, he said,
and growth of population, we
should soon enter an era of progress along all the varied lines of
national adyancf ment which'
should reveal to the eyes of the
nations the magnitude of. our possibilities and the vastness of our
achievements. And these expressions were not the vaporings of
some interested promoter,-. but
rather the convictions received1
during three years' residene in the
country.
The Association was an important factor in the life of the
province. It represented the business end of the state education of
the people. The best efforts of
minister, superintendents and inspectors might all be rendered in
a large measure fruitless without
the intelligent co-operation of the
trustees. He urged a vigorous,
progressive action in the public
schools, that in all communities we
might find people responding to
the educational ;stimulus. arid, de*
veloping into . enterprising, .intelligent and useful citizens,..ji.credit
toT their own community and an'!
honor to their land, and pleaded for
a broader; conception of the duties
of citizenship, independent of party
prejudice. ' 7.7'.
Iii the work of the public school
he_was afraid that too much stress
[was .laid upon .preparation fbr
examinations, instead of the character' building which is the real
purpose of education.
A vote of thanks was passed tp
Prof. Sawyer for his valuable address.
, Mr. P. Peebles, of New^esN
minster, read a paper on "What
our-Association has accomplished
since its establishment."
• The Hon. Price Ellison, who had
made a hurried visit to town 'in
company with the Hpn. H. E.
Young, Minister of Education, next
spoke. A
He |iad expected, he said, to be
here to put in an appearance and
nothing more.. He was delighted
to have been preserif, if for nothing
else than to hear the paper read
by Professor Sawyer. He gave
some practical advice respecting
the length of resolutions presented
to the government. He would be
pleased to lend assistance at any
time, either in his public or private
capacity, to advance the interests
of education in every possible way.
After some further caution as to
brevity in- the preparation of'
resolutions he thanked the delegates for their presence here, and
said that if anything could be done
to advance their interests it would
have his hearty, support.
Hon. H. E. Young said he had
promised himself the privilege of
being at the convention for the
past three years, but, unfortunately
other engagements Had always prevented him. Mr. Ellison had arranged matters this summer so. that
he could come. They were going
to open a school in Vernon on the
13th. Mr. Ellison was 'down at his
home, and he had changed the
date to the 12th, and said that he
(Dr. Young) would have to come
down to Kelowna with him. He
was very glad of this, as it had given
him an opportunity of meeting the
men who were practically in charge
bf the carrying out of the educational work in B. C.
Dr. Young, went on to, speak of
the medical inspection of schools,
and gave some interesting facts
and figures bearing upon that
question.    He flaid it was a stern-
necessity   not    only    that    pupils
should  be  carefully   watched  for
infectious diseases, but the teachers
too.    Many "of  the  teachers who
had  come  from  other 'provinces
had  been  attracted  here by the
press reports of the  dry, climate,
and they had come in the hope of
recruiting their health, and  at the
same time make expenses.   Althq
it might seem cruel, it   was  sometimes   necessary   to   take   drastic
action in such~case8. .....' 7.
He outlined some of the plans
ofthe •department,;in respect-to
the public working of the act...   7
In.conclusion assured the 'dele}'
gates that the education department and himself appreciated the
spirit which actuated the Association, and al tho they could not always see eye to eye, they could
rely on everything being done to
further their movement.
Dr. E. C. Arthur, of Nelson,
delivered a paper, on "Medical Inspection of Schools," which also
touched upon some of the, same
points introduced by Dr. Young:-.-.-
Monday Evening Session
The evening session opened at
8' o'clock with a paper by the Rev.
D.J. Welsh, of Kelowna, on Character Development-; in, the Public
School. He contended that the
isupreme function of the N public
school was the development of
character,-and proceeded to discuss some of the methods by which
this desirable end might be secured.
Character, he said' was not built
the way a mason" would build a
mansion, by layjng one brick upon another. Character grows-like
the flower. It is unfolded from
within. The gardener secures his
most beautiful and fragrant rose by
diligent cultivation, frequent water-
ingf scientific pruning, but did not
putfone! bit of beauty into the color
of'^rthneBs into the fragrance. He
simply waited for the sunlight and
the dew to call these forth from
within; So.it. Wa^ with character
development. Thepublic school
period was. the garden: of life. The
teachers were the trained gardener,
cultivating, guiding, directing the
energies of a growing boy into a
superb manhood shedding its beauty arid fragrance down. the pathway of life.
The dispositions $f pupils varied
greatly, continued Mr. Welsh, and
it was the well-nigh superhuman
task of the public school to develops the highest type of moral efficiency in all. Only the teacher
gifted -with a clear insight in human
nature, could make a success of
character development under such
conditions.      • • •_
He,touched upon .the equipment
of the public school for its task,
and the provision of gymnasiums
aad other means of maintaining a
healthy body. Great stress was
laid upon, the personality of the
teacher, an all important factor of
success. A public school teacher
whose moral and religious standards were right,.and who. was in
possession of the'elements of moral leadership, could do more by
reason of his opportunity with , the
young, to uplift the moral'standards
of the community than all other
agencies combined.
In conclusion he pleaded for a
closer union of all agencies working for the development of a nobler
type of character—the home, the
church, and the public school.
An enthusiastic- vote of thanks j
was tendered "the Rev. Welsh at
the conclusion of his valuable
paper.
A paper on 7'Schpol Planning,"
from an architectural point of view
was read by Mr. ;H. B.Watson, of
Vancouver, after which copies of
the resolutions were distributed by
the resolution, committee.

Farmers'Inst.
Report of Irrigation Committee
Received-Association Formed
to Carry on Work.
A general meeting of the Farmers'
Institute was held last Saturday
afternoon, the president, Mr. T. G.
Speer, presiding.
The object of the meeting, the
chairman announced, was to receive reports of the meetings which
had been held in the various surrounding/districts on the question
of the government ownership of
irrigation systems.
A discussion arose as to the
advisability of carrying on the
work under the auspices of the
Farmers' Institute, some of those
present contending that the movement did not come within the
province of that body.
Mr. J. L. Pridham made the suggestion that the meeting form itself
into a separate association to.be
known as the Okanagan Valley
Irrigation Association, and at a
later stage of the meeting this was
done. Dr. Dickson was elected
president, and Mr. A. R. Muirhead
secretary.
The resolution relating to the
'government taking over the irrigation question, which had been discussed arid supported so unanimously at the various district meetings was read over and unanimously
carried.
It was decided to have petitions
prepared, based upon the resolution
and to appoint a working committee to see that these were
handed round to the people for
signatures;
The secretary was instructed to
write to various interested people
in the valley, explaining the work
which was being done here, and
urging them to take the matter up
on similar lines.

Aid. Harvey, on behalf ofthe
Board of Works, reported that he
had received the tenders for gravelling Pendozi street and Bernard
avenue.      '
After some consideratiou of the
various tenders submitted ■ it was
decided by motion that the lowest
tender, C. Blackwood's of $ 1.20 per
yard for hauling and spreading, be
accepted.
A letter waa presented from the
Kelowna Canning Co. claiming $30
damages fiom the city for damages
to clothing, due to falling into an
unprotected waterworks trench in
Ellis street. Referred to committee.
Aid. Cox mentioned that the fire
brigade had been complaining that
the water had not yet been connected up with the fire hall. It
was explained that the men on the
connecting work had been too
busy in other parts of the town,
but that the connection would be
made as soon as possible.
Two petitions for sidewalk were
presented; one for north Richter
street and Wilson street, and another for Cadder avenue.
In commenting upon the petitions,
the mayor said that the difficulty
in constructing sidewalks under
the' Local Improvement Act was
that there had to be a %ufficient
amount required to make it worth
while issuing debentures to raise
the money. It was a case of either
rounding up several other applications to go with them, or leaving

them over until next spring.
The matter was discussed for
some little time, however, and
eventually the following motion
was passed':
"That sidewalks be constructed
on Richter, Wilson street and
Cadder avenue, as petitioned for,
provided petitions are found to
conform to laws governing same."
The mayor mentioned that the
earth thrown out in the construction
of the ceriient sidewalk on Glenn
avenue had not been removed, although the contract had called for
that. Most of the earth could be
shovelled back against the walk.
It was decided to call Mr. Clement's
attention to the matter.
The following motion was also
passed :" That the balance due Mr.
C. G. Clement on his contract for
construction of sidewalks be paid,
on condition! that he repair the
break on the walk in front of the
Lakeview Hotel, and contract
otherwise complied with."
The mayor also referred to the
electric light meters destroyed in
C. C. Josselyn's fire. He said that
the contract signed on connecting
electric light placed the responsibility for meters on the owner of
the property. A claim had been
presented in this case, but had been
refused. The matter was referred
to the city solicitor for his opinion.
Aid. Harvey asked if the city
could' take, upon - themselves to
construct sidewalks withouthaving^
a petition from the property owners.
He referred to the bad condition
of the sidewalk on the south side
of Bernard avenue from, Pendozi
street to the Presbyterian church.
He said the planks were all rotting
away and it was costing the city a
great deal to keep it in repair.
The; mayor said that the city
would'have to advertise the fact
that they wished to construct the"
sidewalk, and if a sufficierit number
of the property owners favored the
proposal thev could go ahead in
the usual way. More than half the
assessed value of the property adjoining had to be in favor before a
sidewalk could be constructed.

Land sales have been picking up
quite a bit during the last week or
two, and every boat brings passengers from prairie points looking
for a location in the valley. The
Central Okanagan Lands, Ltd., last
week sold $25,000 of their property,
and they report future prospects as
distinctly good.

We are indebted to Mr. Weeks,
for the present of a fine sample of
celery grown on his farm at Benvoulin. Mr Weeks is enthusiastic
as to the possibilities of celery
growing in. the district, 'and he can
certainly show the goods to back
his statements. We already place
on the Vancouver market better
celery than the the California
grower, but the latter ships such
huge quantities, that they have
acquired a name which helps to
sell their goods.

C. Metcalfe's
Fruit Report
The following are extracts taken
from commissioner Metcalfe's current report:—
Edmonton, August 29. A car of
mixed fruits arrived here today for
the Vernon Fruit Co. Selling agent reports it in good conditition.
Dealers here report they prefer to
handle B.C. fruit when they can get
a regular supply, but up to the
present have not been able to do
so, and are obliged to buy American fruit to meet the requirements
of their trade. Supply of fruit
handled by dealers at present date
is drawn chiefly from B. C. either
from jobbers here or direct from
the grower. They further report
the pack and grade of B. C. fruit
much improved over former years
even on the part of individual
shippers, but there is room for
much improvement particularly
in the pack' and weight of fruit in
packages in comparison with the
better American shippers. Some
of the B. C. shippers have asked
for the local freight rate on fruit to
this point. The following are the
rates L.C.L. to Edmonton, per 100
lbs:—
From Vancouver, apples and
pears, $ 1.20
From Vernon, apples and pears,
1.20
From Vancouver,   mixed  fruits,
2.30
From Vernon,' mixed fruits 2.35
Prices have been well maintained up to the present time, although
great quantities of American fruit
have been received on these markets to date before B. C. fruit was
ready for shipment. Jobbing houses here report having received a
number of cars from B. C. of mixed
frurt and report arrival in good
condition, nice stock, peaches a
little over ripe for distribution to
rual points, advise picking greener.

"Can be aepended upon" is an xe-

used in connection with Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy it
means that it never fails to cure diarrhoea,
dysentery or bowel complaints. It is
pleasant to take and equally valuable for

Stopping-an ad. to save money
is like stopping a watch to save
time.
The time to. advertise is all the
time. The man who fishes the
longest has the largest  basket of
fish. .....
Advertising is an insurance policy
against forgetfulness. It compels
people to think of you.
The unprofitableness of advertising is not in doing too much of it—
it is in not doing it correctly.
' Like eating, advertising should
be continuous. When to-day's
breakfast will answer for tomorrow's you can advertise on the
same principle.
If advertising is not a profitable
investment, why do so many successful business men in all lines of
trade keep continuously at it ?
Are they in error or are you ?
Advertising does three things—
informs the people WHO you" are,
WHERE you are and what you
have to SELL; thus strengthening
your correspondence and backing
your salesmen.
Advertising is the silent drummer
that tells the public what the business-man wants it to know about
the goods he has for sale.
No one lies awake thinking pf
your business, out of print, out of
mind. The presidential candidates
are jvell advertised evey four years.
Ask your neighbor who ran with
Bryan last time—five out of ten will
say they have forgotten and the
other five will think long before
they correctly answer.

Wednesday Morning
A long list of resolutions was
-presented by v the resolution committee for consideration. The following were adopted :
That some scheme of old-age
pensions be introduced for teachers...  '..'■..■■.
That the interest of the leaching
profession be materially advanced
by allowing teachers actively engaged in'teaching to write off their
first class in three or four sections.
That pupils be allowed tp keep
all their text books because of the
danger of transmitting infectious
diseases under the present system.
That section 42 of the school act
be amended. -
That the government be asked
to give some official encouragement for the formation of cadet
corps, or for military drill in public
schools, somewhat similar to the
system prevailing in Australia.
That the government supply all
rural and assisted schools with
up-to-date maps and desks.
That in view of the fact that
there is nothing in the public
school curriculum which is particularly adapted to the needs of the
rural as distinct from city schools
the Department be asked to supply
travelling lecturers in technical subjects, who shall go with their equipment from district to district in the
same way that dairy instructors do
A resolution relating to government assisted libraries was also
adopted.
Also a resolution requesting the
government to institute the teaching of first aid in the Normal school
Wednesday Afternoon
The continuation of the discussion on resolutions occupied the
first part part of the afternoon
session, after which the election of
officers was proceeded with.
The   officers, erected    for    the
ensuing year were as follows;      y
Hon. Pres.—Hon. H. E; Young,
M.P..L.L.D.;   Minister    of
Education.
, r President—Thos. Lawson, Kel-
. 'ownaA
1st Vice Pres.—W. E. Flujnerfelt,
Vancouver.  -
; 2nd Vice Pres. —H. J. Barber,
Chilliwack.
Sec.  Treasurer — J. J.   Dougan,

Executive Committee
Dr. Brydone Jack, Vancouver.
Capt. Mackintosh, Victoria.
Mr. John Shaw, Nanaimo. ,
•   R. Barker, South Vancouver.
Mr. C. E. Hope and Mr. . Maxwell Smith,' of Vancouver, were
elected honorary members.
■ The question of the place of
meeting for next year s convention
was then discussed. Invitations
came froim North Vancouver,
Salmon Arm and Vancouver, and
Vancouver was selected almost
unanimously.
Wednesday Evening
The session was resumed at 8
o'clock on Wednesday eVening,
when Mr. J. D. Breeze, of Vancouver, read an interesting article
which had appeared in one of the
papers on the. subject of agricultural teaching in tural schools.
Votes of thanks followed tb the
various officials and  all  who had
„n..W-U...._ J
UU1IUIUUICU'
to   wic   SuCCcSS
of
•1_ _
rne
convention.
The convention then closed with
the singing of the National Anthem
and "The Maple'Leaf Forever."
The Evening's Banquet
A fitting termination, as one of
the delegates put it, to a most successful convention, was the splendid
banquet at which the visitors were
entertained, by the mayor and
council of Kelowna in the Lake
View Hotel. Over, one hundred
and twenty people sat down to the
three long tables spread with good
things, and presided over by his
worship the mayor, Mr. D. W.
Sutherland. An attractive menu
was provided by the management
of the Lake View which was highly
appreciated.
After the feast, came the 'speech-
making. A long toast list had been
arranged headed by that of " The
King," and the singing of the
National Anthem.
Mayor Sutherland then proposed
our visitors,' " The Trustees' Convention. " On behalf of the council
and the city he assured them that
it was a great pleasure to have them
amongst us. He said it waa a pity
that more school boards did not
send delegates to the conventions.
It would be a good idea if the
various boards would set aside a
special fund for that purpose. The
trouble of it was at present that the
beat of the trustees attended, while
the " moss-backs," who had most
need of the help t>i the convention
remained away.
Mr. T. Lawson, the newly elected
president, responded. He thanked
the convention for the honor they
had done him in electing him their
president, and would do all in his
power to help, along the work.
The association was an important
one and was becoming well known
in the province* . and they were
pleased to know they had the support of the government. The convention had been a most successful one, the addresses delivered
had been excellent, and would
help them to take a still deeper'
interest in educational matters. He
had done his best to get the delegates around the district, and show
them what kind of a country we
had here, and to give them a good
time.
Mr. Flumerfelt, Capt. Mcintosh,
Mrs. Birch, and Mr. Stacey also responded.
"The Inspectors of the Province"
was the next toast, which drew
forth an interesting speech from
Mr. Millar, one of the government
school inspectors. He discussed
in an entertaining way the much
debated question as to what constituted an educated man, giving
as his definition — a man, who,
knowing the difference between
right and wrong, sets himself deliberately and persistently to do
the ." right. The great problem
which the public schools had to
face was to bring about .that state
of affairs in the education of the
young.
A great many theories and remedies were advanced from time to
time to overcome thh difficulties of
and failing of public school teachr
ing. One great reason for the ills
which affected educational work
was failure to master the subject
they had to Jeach. He believed
that the present course of study in
public schools was a strong and
sensible course. If a boy had thoroughly mastered it he was in a
position to take up any line of
work.
He wished the trustees and new
officers every success and expressed his readiness to help in any
way.
A toast to the "Teachers of the
Province";was replied to by Mr.
Lord and Miss McNaughton.
The next toast was "The Professions," to which Dr. Arthur, Dr.
Brydone Jack, and Mr. R. B.Kerr
replied.
'The- " Press" to which Mr. J.
Leathley replied, and "The Ladies"
by the Association Secretary, Mr. J.
j. Dougan, and Mr. Wm. McBride,
of Surrey. A
Mr. McBride had a story to tell
about the discovery of the valley.
This individual hesaid"had arrived
somewhere in Black Mountain,"
and when he saw the broad expanse of fertile land he was enraptured, and, calling, up his
followers he said " Blessed be God
for making such a valley. If He had
only known about that beautiful
place a few thousand years ago
He would have made Adam and
Eve there, and called it ihe Garden
of Eden."
Mr. Shaw, of Nanaimo, being'
called upon gave some interesting
reminiscences of the early days of
teaching in the province, during
his thirty years' experience in the
work. When he first began to
teach there were 2000 pupils and
40 teachers. Now there were 35,-
000 pupils and ■ 1000 teadhers.
The cost of' education, too, had
risen from $44,000 a year to $1,-
250,000. It was almost amusing,
too, to note some of the changes
which had taken place. All kinds
of fads had been introduced into
the curriculum and taken off again.
We had now a pretty good system,
and were getting down to pure
educational methods. He spoke
very strongly against the evils of
the written examination which he
hoped some day to see removed.
The Annual meeting of the
Ladies' Hospital Aid was held on
Saturday.   / ._
The Society's income during the
year has been derived from several
social entertainments given by the
society, from "Talent money"
donated by individual members,
and from the membership fees.
The report showed Aid sums
voted by the society for renewed
or improved furnishings in the
wards, linen store, and operating
room; and also $325.00 in the
course of the year voted toward
the running expences of the hospital and toward the expences of an
indigent patient.
The rules of the society were
revised and slightly*changed. Meetings are to be held monthly on the
first Saturday of each month.
The following officers were elected to the Executive Committee:—
Mrs. Cameron, President; Mrs Will-
its, Treasurer; Mrs. Dora F. Kerr,
Secretary; Mrs. D. wV Sutherland,
1 st Vice-president; Mrs. Peabody,
2nd Vice-president; Mrs. Dillon;
Mrs. C. Harvey; Mrs. Knox; ,Mrs.

"It does not pay to have one citizen in
the country jail because another citizen
sold him liquor.
It does not pay to have fifty workingmen
poor and ragged in order to have one barkeeper dressed in broadcloth and flush of
money.
It does not pay to have fifty working-
men living on bone soup and half rations
in order that the liquor men may flourish
on roast turkey and champagne.
It does not pay to have ten smart, active
and intelligent boys transformed into hoodlums and thievas to enable one to lead an
easy life by selling them liquor.
It does not pay to have one thousand
homes blasted, ruined and turned into
hells of disorder and misery in order that
one wholesale liquor dealer dealer may
amass a large fortune.
Iceland has no jail no penitentiary; there
is no court.and only one polieceman. Not
a drop of alcholic liquor is made on the
island, and its 78.8C0 people are total abstainers, since they will not permit any
liquor to be imported.
There is not an illiterate person on the
island, not a child ten years old unable to
read, the system of public schools being
practially perfect.
There are special seminaries and colleges, several good news papers, and a
printing establishment which every year
publishes a number of books on verious
lines.
The snartest men the world has ever
known cohdemn liquor, here is what a
few of them say:
Lincoln:    "The liquor traffic is a cancer
in society, and all attempts to   regulate  it
■v. ill aggravate the evil.    It must  be   era
dicated.
McKinley: "Every man who votes for
licence becomes of necessity a  partner  to
the liquor  traffic the most   degrading
and ruinous of all human pursuits."
Roosevelt: "The saloon tends to produce criminality in the population at large
and lawbreaking among the saloon-keepers
themselves.
"Why! but these art works do fun into
money." remarked a passenger. When I
was in Chicago, I saw a little painting about a foot square, that was held at five
hundred dollars. If I had a million of
money you'd never catch me paying five
hundred dollars for a painting like that.
"That's the way you talk," spok,e np a
bashful travler, "but I'll guarntee that you
have paid four times as much money for
a painting not one tenth part as big," What
me". "Yes you." "What painting." The
one on the end of your nose."

PROCRASTINATION
IS THE THIEF OF TIME.
Don't put off having your watch attended to if it is not running properly.
Many good watches are practically
(.spoiled by being.kept running without
jj cleaning. When your watch7sudden-
ly begins to lose, don't move the regulator to make it go faster and'think
you have remedied the cause. Some
watches run for months with broken
jtiwels and finally stop when the pivot
is worn off the staff, then it costs much
' more to repair it than if it had been,
attended to at first! When your watch
goes wrong bring it to me and I will
report on it, and- make the cost of repair as low as possible.
