. .   Auditor Appointed -  Street Lighting Matters
A meeting of the city council

Aid. Cox, Harvey, -Leckie and

Mayor. Sutherland mentioned
that it was now the time of the
year when an auditor should be
engaged to go over the city's
accounts. Two applications had
been received for the work; one
from Mr. G. A. Fisher, who again
offered to undertake the work for
$90.; and one from a firm of
chartered accountants at the coast,
. Cvho stated that for the annual fee
of $150 the city could, have the
services of an expert municipal
accountant who would render a
statement quarterly.
7 A motion was passed accepting
7the tender of Mr. G. A. Fisher. "
Mayor Sutherland then introduced By-law No. 80, which is for the
purpose of regulating the waterworks of the city, and the charges
and conditions of service.- It would
be in order to give the by-law its
first reading, and he would suggest
that each member of the council
take a copy give it his careful consideration, returning it with any
amendments not later than Friday,
when they could submitted to the
city solicitor.
A motion was accordingly passed
that By-law No. 80 be given a first
V Aid. Harvey asked if it were not
f>08sible to put some kind of a
ight at the corner of DeHart
avenue and Richter street. It was
hot possible to  put   another arc
ll__.l_._-       -_-_.#.        »U_h A___-,-_«__ -tilt U__
thought that as it was a very dark
corner, a small incandescent lamp
might Be put there.
Mayor Sutherland said that while
they were on the light question,
there was another matter which
might be given some consideration.
There were seventeen small incandescent lamps on Glenn avenue.
These were old and required replacing. They were at present
burning fifteen hours out of the
twenty-four, and using as much
current as ten ordinary houses.
The city was thus losing $25 a
month revenue on them. He
would suggest that the arc lamp at
the south end of Richter street
should be .moved and placed at
the corner of Glenn avenue and
Ethel street. It should light up and
down both ways, and the small
lamps could then be removed. It
might perhaps be necessary to put
a 4CVor 50 candle power Tungsten
lamp at each end. The arc light
at the end of Richter street would
not be missed. It was out of the
way, and gave the lineman a long
tramp to look after it.        i
The following motion was accordingly passed: " That the arc
light situate on Richter street south
of the bridge be moved to corner of
Glenn avenue and Ethel street;
that this be replaced with a Tungsten 40 c.p.; and that Tungstens
be also placed at the corner of De-
Hart avenue and Richter street;
also at the south end of Abbott
A communication had been laid
on the table last week from Dr.
Spencer, one of the leaders of ihe
Local Option movement, recommending to the council certain
amendments to the Municipal
Clauses Act, in reference to licenses
and the appointment of License I
Commissioners and Police Commissioners. The mayor* asked if
the council wished to do anything
in the matter. The amendments
referred to would no doubt be
dealj with at the forthcoming convention of B. C. municipalities.
Aid. Jones said he thought the
question had better be left to that
gathering, as its recommendations
would have more weight and influence with the government.
Aid. Leckie reported that an
objection had been raised by Mr.
J. Carsorso to the charge of $5 for
street watering in front of his lot
on Water street. Mr. Carsorso
r.lairned that the portion of the
street in question had not been
Aid. Cox mentioned that there
were unpaid arrears of the scavenging rate amounting to $195. He
would like to know what had
better be done.
The city clerk was instructed to
inform delinquents that proceedings
would be taken to enforce payment.
The meeting , then adjourned
until Monday next, November 7th,
at 8 p.m.

A. R. LORD, B. A.,
* The first Canadian National
Apple Show which opened, at
Vancouver on Monday last, has
according to reports to hand, amply
fulfilled the expectations of its promoters. The biggest and finest
collection of apples of almost every
known variety, ever seen on the
continent of America, and consequently in the whole world itself is
gathered together from all quarters
of the globe. The entries which
number no less than 3,424 from
267 exhibitors, comprise 12 carloads exhibits; 79 ten-box; 74 five-
box; 724 one-box; 16 three-box
sweepstakes ; 1,944 plates ; 6 ^collections of biggest apples; 8 freak
apples ; 6 crab apple displays; 8
district exhibits; 5 limited displays;
119 apple bye - products and 2
photographic displays of orchard
scenes. Each province in panada
has a government display, also
Australia and Tasmania.

From wires received up to time of going to press Kelowna
is piling -up new honors in fine style. The following
are the results so far, and represent the most coveted
prizes in the whole show:

FIRST PRIZE in District Display

SECOND PRIZE in the Limited
Display, $125 cash.
present to hand, but the successes
of Kelowna's exhibit so far are of a
most sweeping character, and
justify the expectation that more is
yet to come. The sweeps^ke
prize of $ 1,000 for the best carload
in the show ($500 of which was
given by the Central Okanagan
Lands, Ltd.) has been awarded to
the magnificent car of Jonothans
sent down in charge of Mr. B. McDonald, and packed by Mr. J. Gibb.
The first prize in the keenly contested District Display, is indeed a
feather in Kelowna's cap. In the
Limited or Two-two display the
second prize of $125 has been won
(Salmon Arm was the winner of
the first).
The car of Jonathans, according
Prof. Van Deman, the head of the
judging staff, was " the finest car of
fruit ever placed on exhibition. It
secured perfect score on all points.
The results of the box and plate
exhibits are not yet to hand.    ,
The new Bishop of Westminster
and Acting Bishop of Kootenay
last week performed the ceremony
of laying the. foundation stone of
what will be when completed, the
Church of All Saints, at Okanagan
Centre. The Clergy .from the various churches in the valley including the Rev. Thos Greene of Kelowna were present.
A new company, the Lakeside
Stock and Dairy Co., has been organized in Summerland. It is proposed to conduct an up-to-date dairy and stock farm.
The case of J. A. Dake, who was
accused along with Frank Belmont
of setting fire to his jewelery store
in Enderby, in July, 1909, came up
at Vernon last week. The jury
could not agree, and the case will
have to be taken up again at the
next assizes.
That was a fitting tribute paid to
the personal ability of the man
when Sir Thomas Shaughnessy presented to Mr. J. M. Robinson a
personal cheque for the sum of
$ 600 as an evidence of his appreciation of the work performed
by'Mr. Robinson as founder of
Summerland, Peachland and Naramata. No man is in a better position to know the obstacles wnich
Mr. Robinson encountered in his
early efforts than _3 Sir Thomas
Shaughnessy and his colleagues.
It was to Sir Thomas that Mr. Robinson went early in the life of Summerland and procured from him
the assistance necessary to secure
the land and place the water upon
it, and since that time the keen eye
of Sir Thomas has been upon every
movement in the progress of the
community.   Summerland %ei)ieB>.

The Union of South
With a great military parade and
review, Capetown is celebrating the
Union of South Africa. The festivities will continue through this
week and next and will include the
opening of the first parliament by
the Duke of Connaught, and a
series of magnificent pageants illustrating the history of the various
states forming the union.
During the festivities Boer and
Briton-will meet on common ground
and various floats will illustrate the
bravery and patriotism of the Boers
in their long but hopeless battle for
liberty. A majority of the people
of the Transvaal now realize that
their country was too small to become a successful independent
nation, under the conditions prevailing in South Africa, and that the
annexation of the country by Great
Briton has given them distinct advantages in the way of trade and
commerce and the development of
industries. The next generation of
Boers will probably be as loyal
subjects of the king as any in the
Hon. Rudolphe Lemieux, post-
masrer general of Canada, has arrived in Capetown as representative
of the Dominion at formal opening.

The Young People's Society had
a social at the Methodist church
last Monday night. An enjoyable
programme was arranged and the
usual and necessary refreshments
rounded off a delightful evening.
The social was evidently arranged
on that evening to keep the young
people of. the' district from the
spooks, jgoblins and fairies, who are
supposed to be allowed to vent
their spleen on earthly mortals during one night in the year, and although no person has been reported missing, there are manv signs
to prove that these mysterious
spirits were abroad on the last
night in October.
Fifteen workers responded the
call for volunteers to prepare concrete for the foundation walls of
the new parsonage. From day
light till dark they toiled, headed
by the energetic reverend gende-
man, who set the pace and maintained it too, although the gleaming
white linen contrasting sharply
with the black broadcloth hardly
seemed fitting appeal for the job
of shoveling concrete, but the walls
were finished, and that is a matter
for congratulation.
Now that the evenings are
lengthening out you will be doing
more reading. If your eyes bother
you at all have them examined by
The First Proxincial
Poultry Show.
At a meeting of the British Columbia Poultrymen'8 Association,
which has been in progress at the
department of agriculture, it was
decided to hold the first provincial
annual poultry show in Vancouver
city during January of 1912, an
appropriation of $600 being made
towards the prosecution of the
success of the event. Another
matter of very great interest to
every British Columbia house-keeper arose through the discussion bv
the executive of the common
practice among provincial egg
handlers, of selling as " strictly
fresh " eggs that are in reality cold
storage stock. In this connection
the executive placed itself on
record as favoring the adoption of
legislation prescribing that no eggs
be sold hereafter as " strictly fresh "
which do not bear, stamped on the
shell, the name of the poultryman
from whom they have been obtained, with the date of laying.
Mr. Martin Burrell, M. P., has
qualified for a niche in the temple
of fame by growing a sunflower
measuring 43 inches in circumference.
If any of your children show
signs of eye strain, don't put off
having them examined, but bring
them right down to Knowles before it is too late. •

The following information, which
has been gathered by the city
clerk, Mr. G. H. Dunn, will no
doubt be interesting, showing as it
does just how Kelownn stands in
the way of water rates in comparison with other cities.
From the figures given, by a
little calculation, it will be seen
that the net average for the six B.
C. cities named is 45c per 1000
maximum, with a minimum rate of
20c, compared with Kelowna's
maximum rate of 30c per 1000,
and minimum of eleven and a
quarter cents. The average net
rate for the four largest U.S. coast
cities h 23c maximum, and 13c

Scott says "They were very much

Personally, I have seen so much of the
evils of the lipuor traffic in the last four
years, so much of its economic waste, so
much of its physical ruin, so much of its
mental blight, so much of its tears and
heartache, that I have come to regard the
business as one that must be held and
controlled by strong and effective laws.
I bear no malice toward those engaged
iu the business, but 1 hate the traffic.
I hate its very phase.
I hate it for its intolerance.
1 hate it for its arrogance.
I hate it for its hypocricy.
I hate it for its cant and craft and false
I hate it for its commercialism.
I hate it for its greed and avarice,
1 hate it for its sordid love of gain at any
I hate it for its domination in politics.
I hate it for its corrupting influence in
civic affairs.
I hate it for its incessant effort to debauch
the sufferage of the country; for the cowards it makes of public men.
I hate it for its utter disregard of law.
I hate it for its ruthless trampling of the
solemn compacts of state constitutions.
I hate it for the load it straps to labor's
back, palsied hands it gives to toil, for its
vrounds to genius, for the tragedies of its
might have-beens.
I hate it far the human wrecks it has
I hate it for the almshouses it peoples,
for the prisons it fills, for the insanity it
begets, for its countless graves in potters'
I hate it for the mental ruin it imposes
upon its victims, for its spiritual blight,
for its moral degradation.
I hate it for the crimes it has committed.
I hate it for the homes it has destroyed.
I hate it for the hearts it has broken.
I hate it for the malice it has planted in
the hearts of men— for its poison, for its
bitterness—for the dead sea fruit with
which it starves their souls.
I hate it for the grief it causes womanhood—the scalding tears, the hopes deferred, the strangled aspirations, its burden
of want and care.
I hate it for its heartless cruelty to the
aged, the infirm and the helpless, for the
shadow it throws upon the livas of ohlUran
for its monstrous injustice to blameless
little ones.
I hate it as virtue hates vice, as truth
hates error, as righteousness hates sin, as
justice hates wrong' as liberty hates tyranny as freedom hates oppression.
I hate it as Abraham Lincoln hated slavery.
And as he sometimes saw in prophetic
vision the end of slavery and the coming
of the time when the sun should shine and
tne rain should fall upon no slave in the
Republic, so I sometimes seem to see the
end of this unholy traffic, the coming of
the time when, if it does not wholly cease
to be, it shall find no safe habitation any

Our   Sense   of   Time   Keener   When'
Asleep. Than  When Awake.
While it is true no one knows exactly what sleep ia, sortie^ curious facts
have been discovered about itlately,
For example, when we sleep the lower half of us weiglis more, than .titer
Upper half—the brain is lighter: and
the legs' heavie. $ Experiments have
shown that if a man goes to sleep on
a bed: suspended exactly at the middle,
point; of;Tiis weight his-head- begins*
to tip slowly up and his feet to go
down. When he awakens it is to find
that his* head is getting nearer* and,
nearer the floor and his feet nearer;
the ceiling. This is due to the fact
that: when we are asleep tire blood; in
the brain goes off to. other partrof the
body. The moment the brain ftwakes
to life again it draws the blood back.
In fact, the physician can give, sleep
to the most restless individual in a
few seconds by- tightly compressing,
the great arteries m * the neck that-
carry blood to the brain.
Our sense of time is stronger
when we are asleep than when we are-
awake. Experiments conducted some
years ago on n number of men and
women between the ages of twenty
and thirty showed thai, fifty per. cent,
of them- were able, to wake up in. the
morning at any time they had decided
upon the night before: The resolve
seems to wind up a little clock in the
subconscious brain. When, the hour
arrives the clock, giyes the alarm in
some mysterious way to the day shift
of the brain; and the eyelids open.
Then the night shift "goes to sleep in
turn, or, at least the. clock does: not
seem to work in the daytime. You
can test this by resolving some morning to look- at; your- watch at 10.20. It
is ahundred to one that you will: not
do it unless by chance.
It is quite likely that when all the
mysteries of sleep are probed the
various phenomena will be found
closely, correlated with electricity as
identified1 with life. It is not improbable' that, the molecular "components of the physical organism are both
negative and positive, and the human
activity is simply the expenditure of;
a given amount of this electrical force.
When the cells have been emptied the
desire for sleep comes. Nature demands that the batteries be recharged, and she can only fill them properly when the objective-functions of the
body are at rest, thus permitting the
energy; of the human- machine to be
devoted entirely to the subjective rey
charging process. While the process-
is going on we have "sleep."
.   Balalaika Popular* lit- England.
All things Russian being; popular
in England, people have taken. up;
the balalaika, a Bussian string instrument which, a few months ago- was*
unknown there. Now there are thousands of balalaika players, and balalaika orchestras enjoy a vogue.
The balalaika is said to be the.
easiest musical instrument in the
world to learn. It consists of three'
atrijQgB across a triangular base. The
strings are struck together with a
forefinger oi the right; hand,, forming
a chord; the left hand moves down
the neck of the balalaika, changing-
the key of the chords, in the same
way ae~a'banjoes-played.
In fact, the balalaika is a "banjo
with, three strings, only the strings
are never played separately: It is
therefore mjich easier to: leann than

The Economy of the Prevention of Conveyance
Losses of Irrigation Water
And Use of Concrete for the Economical Construction of Irrigation Structures
By Professor ETCHEVERRY, of the University of California
Read before the Fourth Annual Convention of the Western Canada Irrigation Association, held
at Kamloops, B.C., August 3rd, 4th, and 5th, 1910.
Where furrow irrigation is practised the crude method, which has
been largely abandoned in Southern
California, is effected by means of
an earthen ditch located along the
higher boundary of the farm, which
carries the water to the upper end
of the furrows, where an equal
division between furows is attempted through openings in one bank
of the ditch, or through iron or
wooden spouts. This methods requires constant attention, and a
uniform distribution is impossible.
For this reason in mdny localities
the earthen head ditch has been
replaced by wooden flumes with
one opening in the side of the
flume for each furrow : the openings are regulated by slides or
plugs. In Southern California the
short life of wooden distributing
flumes and their leekage have led
to the use of concrete flumes.
These flumes are constructed by
means of a specially-designed
machine, or by means of wooden
or metal moulds. In the side of
the flume are cemented galvanized
iron spouts, one for each furrow,
-and the flow is regulated by iron
slides. These small flumes cost
about twice as much as a wooden
flume, but their durability will more
than offset the greater first cost.
The   distribution   of   water   in
flumes over rolling ground requires
that wooden flumes be used, supported on stilts or trestles.   These,
as often constructed, are weak, and
will blow down with every strong
windstorm.   Flumes also interfere
with  culivation and harvesting of
the crop.    These objections have
led many of the irrigators of Southern California to use underground
pipe distribution systems—a supply
pipe laid about 2 feet underground
along the upper boundary of the
tract.   At the head of each row of
trees the pipe is tapped  and   a
stand pipe connected to it.   Tbe
water flows out of the stand-pipe
into  the furrows through   spouts
cemented    in    the  . stand-pipe.
Cement, wood and clay pipes are
generally used.    Cement pipe  is
more durable than wood pipe, and
is considerably cheaper than either,
except where a clay pipe factory
is in the vicinity and it has to meet
competition.     The   cement   pipe
used in Southern California ranges
from  6 inches to   36   inches   in
diameter, and is made of a mixture
of 1 part of ' cement   to 3 or 4 of
sand or gravel, well   tamped in
metal moulds.     The moulds are
not expensive, and the pipes are
often made by the irrigator himself.
Aa the large pipes will not resist
pressusesabovc   10 feet and   the
small ones not over 20 feet, for
greater pressures wooden pipes or
some other type of concrete pipes
are necessary.     The cost of this
type of cement mortar  pipe   as
compared with  wooden   banded
pipe is about as follows:

In general the cement pipe costs
about one-half the wood banded
While pipe irrigation has until
recently been limited to Southern
California, it has, to my knowledge,
during the last few years been
adopted for orchards in Oregon,
Washington, Idaho and no doubt
other States, and there are many
localities where expensive wooden
pipe and iron pipe, systems have
been installed where a cheaper and
more permanent cement system
could have been built
ln the above remarks I have attempted to present to you what I
believe is the best.solution for the
prevention of watet losses in the
conveyance of water. The methods
suggested may be expensive in first
cost, and no doubt there are localities where water is so plentiful and
cheap that no improvements are
necassairy; but the remarkable
growth of irrigation of the last few
years have .created such a demand
on the water supply (that the cheap
sources have been mostly utilized.
In future water will be developed
at a greater cost, and because of
the large area of arid land for
which there is insufficient available
water supply, the high value and
scarcity of water will lead to the
best form of conveyance of water.
For the second part of my paper
I have selected " Concrete and its
relative economy as compared with
wood   for   irrigation   structures,
meaning by  concrete  both
and reinforced concrete."
While concrete and . masonary
have been the standard materials
for irrigation strutures in the older
irrigated regions of foreign countries
the use of concrete on the irrigation
systems in the United States was
practically unknown until a few
years ago, with the exception of
Southern California, where concrete has been used during the last
twentv years or more for lining
canals, for cement pipes, for concrete distributing flumes, and for
measuring boxes and other smaller
structures. During the last few
years, and especially since the beginning of the work of the U. S.
Reclamation Service in 1902, concrete structures are widely used,
not only on the twenty-five Government projects located in fifteen
States and territories, but on many
of the new private projects. On
some of the older systems wooden
structures which have decayed are
often replaced by permanent
concrete structures. For instance,
the Modesto and Turlock irrigation
systems in California are replacing
many of the wooden structures
with concrete as fast as they need
renewal. This is also true of the
Arkansas Valley Sugar Beet and
Irrigated Land Company of Colorado, which has done some very
interesting reinforced concrete"
work, and of many other projects
in the other States.
The obstacles which have in the
past prevented the more rapid extension of cement have been its
cost and the difficulties of handling
it, as compared with the lower first
cost of wooden structures, which
are eadily erected by common
laborers. The difficulties in the
manipulation of cement are not
serious. Now that concrete is so
"widely used in cities and on farms,
any observant, careful person can,
with a little reading and some
practice, learn how to construct the
simple structures, As regards its
cost in comparison with lumber,
the cost of cement has very materially decreased, and it can be
purchased for from $2.50 to $3.00
in most regions, while the price of
lumber has advanced. Another
reason for the increasing use of'
concrete for irrigation work is the
rapid development and improvements in reinforced concrete construction, which is well adapted for
irrigation structures.
The one great advantage of concrete over, lumber is its great durability. It is true that, as a rule, the
firat cost of concrete structures is
more than that of wooden ones,
but almost invariably concrete is
more economical. The difference
in first cost is not as great as is
usually supposed. A few general
comparative figures, based on facts
collected from different projects,
will help to convince those who
are still strong advocates of wooden
Omitting the parts of irrigation
systems already discussed, the
structures most frequently used are
gates or turnouts, or division boxes
placed at the heads of ditches;
measuring boxes, drops or falls
used where the slope of the ground
is steeper than the grade that can
be given to the canal; pipe syhons
and flumes to cross depressios and
for side hill work; bridges and
As regards durability, the wooden structures can be classified into
two groups. In the first group are
those structures which are partly
in rhe ground, which include gates
at the head of ditches, division and
measuring boxes, drops, culverts,
etc.; and in the second group are
those which are al) above ground,
such as flumes and wooden stove
pipes when supported above
ground or buried underground.
The life of wooden structures depends on the quality of lumber
used, on the strength of the structure and the workmanship, For
instance, a flume well built and
with sufficient strength to prevent
springing and settling, £.<"> that there
will be minimum leekage, v ill last
much longer than a weaker flume.
The short life of wooden irrigation structures is greatly due to the
lumber being alternately dry and
wet. The life of the structures of
the first group is in addition shortened by the wood being partly in
contact with moist earth.

Butter Butter Butter
On account of the high price of feed and the enormous
demand for Canadian Butter, there is going to  be a
scarcity of Creamery Butter this winter. Doubtless many
merchants will be short in consequence.
We have  been  fortunate to  make a contract with a
reliable firm, and we will be suDolied with
throughout the winter months. In this case, as in all
others, we made Quality the predominent factor when
buying, and will guarantee to give you the Best Alberta
Creamery Butter.    The price is now and  will  remain
40c. Per Lb.
If you prefer
We confidently state that we buy from the majority of
the good butter makers in the district, and can generally
supply you with First-class Fresh Dairy.
For those who must have fresh Butter, direct from the
churning, we would suggest EDEN BANK, which we
get every week by express.    Per lb. 50c.
