- The Fire Brigade Ball waa a great success, and the boys appreciate the generous
support given them. At the meeting on
Tuesday evening a vote of thanks was
pasted to the ladies of Kelowna for their
unstinted donation! of good things to eat,
and the beautifully decorated tables. Some

The banquet last night in connection with the Laymen's Missionary movement was, as anticipated,
a decidedly successful function.
Some 70 people sat down to the
tables, which had been arranged
in a most attractive fashion.
A comprehensive toast list had
been arranged, and at about eight
o'clock the speaking commenced,
Mr, J. A. Bigger taking the chair.
The toast of "The King" was
proposed by Capt. Knight, whose
patriotic services extend into the
reigns of three sovereigns. The
singing of the national anthem followed.
In proposing the toast "Our far
flung battle line." Mr. W. E. Adams
dealt with the mission work in
foreign fields, chiefly in Western
China and Japan. As showing the
magnitude of the work to be accom
plished, he said that some six to
eight million Chinese were under
the sphere of Methodist work.. In
1909, there were 53 missionaries
engaged, their work being divided
into four classes:,'_ evangelistic,
medical, publishing, and educational. In Japan the Methodist church
had 9 mis8ionaries,°with. 357native
missionaries, who had charge" of
some four or five million people.
Mr. Adams also dealt with certain
phases of the home work amongst
the Indians and Asiatics.
In reply Mr. Dolsen gave a
lengthy and most interesting talk
on the progress of mission work
in Canada, emphasizing the great
need of more workers and more
funds, both in the home'work and
the foreign field.
Mr. Leslie'Dilworth, speaking on
the_"Home Base,"said that the future missionaries are now in the
colleges, leagues,' and Sunday
schools, which must always be depended upon to keep up the supply of workers. Hence the importance of attention to^this branch of
the work.     s
Mayor Bell, of Enderby, replied,
and urged the thorough organization in Canada of Methodist mission
work. Funds, too, were needed,
and members should give to the
utmost extent of their power.
Dr. Baker strongly emphasized
the eternal principle for which they
were in the field—that the truth
might be spread to the ends of the
The Rev. Mr. Vance, of Rutland,
replied, and dealt with the various
reasons for the advancement of the

The conflict between the various
political factions in the Old Country
still continues. Latest results show
that the government coalition is
slowly gaining ground, but the
difference between the strength of
the two opposing parties is small
enough to keep the enthusiasm at
white heat. The latest results

New Hockey Team
Last Friday evening Dec. 9 a
meeting was held by some of the
young men of the town, for. the
purpose of Organizing a hockey
team. The meeting was attended
by quite a number, and after some
suggestions, it 'vas decided lo "call
the team the "Kelowna Shamrocks."
The colors will be green and white
with a shamrock on the sweater
with K. S. C. (Kelowna Shamrock
Club). A nice sum of money has
already been subscribed, and the
citizens have been very good in
helping the club along. The following officers have been elected

In connection with the Young
People's Society ofthe Presbyterian
church, on Monday last Mr. Geo.
E. Boyer, who recently returned
from a trip to the old country, gave
an interesting account of his visit
there. Mr. Boyer's vivid and
entertaining descriptions of points
of interest in the Old world, and
his amusing anecdotes proved
highly acceptable to his hearers,
and a most enjoyable evening was
spent. Miss Datie Leckie gave the
usual resume of current events, and
Russell Leckie sang a hymn, with
mouth-organ accompaniment by
Lome Lemon,
Those who were for any reason
unfortunate enough to miss seeing
" The Private Secretary," as produced last Tuesday and Wednesday
by the Kelowna Musical and Dramatic Society are greatly to be pitied.
Judging from the almost continuous
merriment which convulsed . the
audi :ncc, those who did go
thoroughly enjoved themselves.
And who could help laughing?
The crustiest old Scrooge that ever
lived would have screwed his face
into the semblance of a grin—even
if it hurt him—when the grotesque
figure of the Rev. Robert Spalding,
with his arms full of " goods and
chnt-tels " walked on to the stage.
" The Private Secietary " is without a doubt one of the funniest
comedies ever seen in Kelowna,
and the Society have every reason
to .be proud of the way in which it
was produced. The plot itself is
of thtf*slightest—a comedy of errors
brought about by the impersonation
of a newly engaged secretary by a
young sower of " wild oat3 "—but
the play abounds in humorous
1 he most prominent figure, in
many "ways was the Rev. Robert,
whose general get-up and irresistible acting " brought the house
down." Mr. C. H. Bond who took
the part is a humorist of no mean
order. As Mr Cattermole, the
returned Anglo-Indian, with dis-
oglejed.liver, and fiery irritable
temper, Mr. W. B. Pease was a
great success. Some of the finest
acting of the evening was performed by Mrs. Weddell, who took to
perfection the role of-the romantic,
old maid, With leanings towards
spiritualism and a profound reverence for " mediums." Mrs. W. A.
Peters made a clever landlady,
while Miss Collett and Miss Binger
as Edith Marsland and her friend
Eva Webster displayed considerable skill in rhe performance of
their difficult parts.
The part of Mr. Douglas Cattermole was taken by Mr. Lynn Harvey ; Mr. Marsland, the country
squire and Master of Fox Hounds
by Mr. J. F. Burne, and his nephew
Harry Marsland by Mr. H. B.
Green. Mr. S. A. Good as Mr.
Sydney Gibson, the Bond Street
tailor and would-be gentleman, and
Mr. H. A. Grey as John, the servant
and Knox, the lawyer's clerk completed the caste.
Although the inimitable Bobby
Reed was missed from the caste, he
finding the duties of stage manager
too exacting to be able to take a
part himself, yet the greatest credit
is due to him for the clever way in
which the piece was staged and
evident careful training of his company. Mr. Reed haa had considerable experience in stage production
and when he takes a piece in hand
one can generally depend upon its
being a success.
The musical interludes were provided by the Society's own orchestra
under the able direction of Mr. H.
After the performance on Wednesday evening, the hall was cleared
and an impromptu dance arranged-
which was continued until the small

Urges Old Country to Get a
Move On
A Canadian Club dinner was
held in London last week at which a
large and distinguished gathering of
Englishmen and Canadians '«ere
present. Lord Strathcona presided,
and in making a presentation to
the Club, alluded to the fact that
the club had originated at a time
when it took sixty days to cross the
Atlantic and the few members then
had toasted themselves in the old-
fashioned toddy bowl.
At that time the West, which now
produced one hundred millions of
bushels of wheat, did not produce
one million, and the only dealings
of the merchants were with furs
from the'Northwest and' timber
from the Easr, while British Columbia was only known as the sea of
great mountains. He emphasized
the contrast. The potentialities of
Canada were so great that their
sons should look upon the present
prosperity as a mere bagatelle.
The toast to the Dominion was
responded to by Hon. Price Ellison,
minister of finance in the British
Columbia cabinet. He said he was
a Manchester man by birth, a
Canadian,' b3' adoption and a
Chamberlainite and Imperialist by
choice. Amid much laughter and
cheering, lie stated that Canada
wanted the old country- to get a
move on. ."We don't want to have
any dealings'with the United States,
which made Britain its dumping
ground," he added. The preference for Great Britain had been
ehdorseel by all "parties and fjfefer-
ential trade was sure to come.
The British Isles, he stated, if
dropped in Canada, would need
an exploration party to find them.
Englishmen don't realize that Canada would soon have a population
greater than the United States. Mr.
Ellison devoted the greater part of
his remarks to Canadian politics
and the resources of the country.

only the whole province, but portions of each of the following:
Yukon and the North West territories on the north, Alberta on the
east, the United States on the south
and Alaska on the west. All information of a general nature,
which the scale will admit of, is
shown, including railway stations
and nil important points.

The B. C. Fruitgrowers Association although in its reorganized
form only a young body; is showing
commendable activity in dealing
with the questions affecting the
fruit industry of the province.
As a matter of vital and ever increasing importance to all engaged
in the orchard industry, the problem
of securing adequate help at certain
times of the year and more especially in the picking season, is at present occupying the attention of the
A full and careful discussion of
this question as it affects the British
Columbia fruit industry was held at
a recent meeting of the Directors
ofthe Association. The general
opinion was that the bringing in of
yellow labour is out of the question.
It was also felt that the Provincial
Government should take steps to
assist in the problem. The following resolution was unanimously
" That this Association respectfully request the Provincial Government to establish a Labour Bureau
for securing and distributing'labour
in the interests of the fruit and
allied agricultural industries of the
A strong committee was appointed to press upon the Government
the claims cf the industry in this
regard. On this committee, R. H.
Agur, of Summerland, Chairman,
represents the Dry Belt; with Thos.
Abriel, of Nakusp, for the Kootenays ; J.C; Metcalfe, of Hammond
for the Lbwer Mainland; arid W.
N.Shaw, of Gabriola Island, for
Vancouver and. the Gulf Islands.
To strengthen the position pf the
committee in its efforts to secure
this much-needed action on the
part of the Government, the Secretary was directed to collect from
fruit-growers definite information
as to the amount of labour acually
required for the coming year. The
rapid increase in acreage and yield
of orchards will mean an even
greater shortage of labour in future
years, but at this time information
is asked on next year's requirement*
A circular is being distributed
amongst the fruitgrowers of the
province, accompanied by a blank
form calling for answers to certain
questions. By this means it is
hoped to collect a mass of accurate
and useful information as to th-
demand for labour in different districts, and also the kind of help _
required, and the conditions of
Questions are asked as to the
number of temporary labourers
expected to be required in 1911;
what months the help is needed; '
what rate of wages it is proposed
to pay, and whether board and
lodging can be furnished. In this
latter connection it is mentioned
that to be able to furnish board is
almost imperative in the case of
any white labour, if this labour is
to be brought into a district.
Mr. R. F. Brandon, of the Jeanne
RusselLCo,, who "has leased the
Opera House from Mr. Raymer,

Packing Schools to
be Held Again
Popularity of Last Year s Experiment Decides Government to Repeat Schools 7
In accordance with the policy of
the Department of Agriculture,
which is to educate fruit growers
in the production of the highest,
class of fruit, the fruit branch of
the Department last-winter conducted a series of five packing schools
for the teaching of the proper and
most up-to-date methods of packing and wrapping fruit. This work
proved very popular and undoubtedly met the needs of the districts
in which the packing schools were
placed. Fruit growers of the province will therefore be pleased to
learn that this work will be continued and further extended this
year so as to establish these schools
in fruit districts of the province
where desired and where a sufficient number of pupils can be secured.
For the work Mr. Berkley of
Vernon~and Mr. Gibb of Kelowna
have* been secured. Mir. Berkley
was this year in charge of a branch
of the Okanagan Fruit Union, and
packed'the first prize mixed-carload, at the Canadian National
Apple Show at Vancouver, which
also won second prize sweep-stakes
He conducted four packing schools
for the Department last year and
gave extremely good satisfaction.
Mr. Gibb of the Kelowna Farmer's
Exchange has had charge of their
fruit packing this year, and had the
distinction of packing the winning
winaing sweep-stakes car of
Jonathans at the Canadian National
Apple show. He also gave excellent satisfaction in packing school
work for the Department last year
in the Okanagan. The standing
and experience of'-. these men is
such as to guarantee the highest
class of instruction and the fullest
satisfaction in the work they undertake, and the fruit growers. of the
province will feel that in securing
these men the Department of vAg1-
riculture has been fortunate.
From many districts in the province the demand for packing schools this year is quite urgent and it
ia only by spreading out the money
available for the work that eyenja
part of them can be accommodated.
The amount of fruit to be packed
increases very rapidly every year,
and localities now benefit by packing schools, wherea year; or two
ago this work.was quite unnecessary.   - . A-7A /77'.\';A'.'
To bring? befoj&j tKe public ^jthe
method in which this work will:be
administered' a circular has been
issued, outlining the terms on which
packing schools will bti arrafliged
for in any district This' circular
will be placed in the hands of a
responsible body, to whom the
|dcal adminptration of the packing
school, in the-way of- securing the'
requisite pupils, fruit, a packing
room etc., will be left /This body
will also be required to. guarantee
a minimum attendance of pupils.
This plan has been pronounced
very satisfactory by organizations
in a number of districts.
The Department of Agriculture
provides the instructor, and pays
his expenses. The Department will
bear the cost of packing paper,
fruit and otherlegitimate esj-RM_e*
except that of the packing tables,
which will be left at each point
after ther school is finished.
The responsible body in each
case, whether a municipal body,
Farmers' institute or Fruit.Growers
association, will be required to
_ jarantee minimum of twelve pupils, but not more than fifteen, at a
fee of three, dollars ($3.00) each,
to take twelve lessons ol two and
a half hour* per lesson ; in _ other
words one week In a limited
number of districts a double packing school can be arranged for in
which the minimum guarantee will
be twenty-four pupils, but not more
than thirty, for the same period.
Arrangements can be made for an
•vsning or late afternoon public
demonstration on -apple packing
for the benefit of the district at
1a_*8.  .■'.':'       •■   •   'A-'y   -7
Fruit required—About three
boxes per pupil is necessary.  The
hardier varities such as Ben Davis
and Gano are prefered. Fruit must
be in fairly good condition but
need not be graded. Associations
should at once secure the necessary fruir, or if none is now left in
the disirict this should be stated at
the time application is made and_4
the Department will look after
it. —^
iPackirig tables—Two tables, 16'
x4' and 3' high with,burlap top arid
restsTor the boxes are required, for
fifteen pupils. These tables cost
about $8.50 each when made by a~
carpenter. They are unnecessary
where fruit packing associations
can provide their tables, In cases
where these tables must be provided please advise the Department
and full instructions for construc-
will be sent.
Hall—Fbr fifteen pupils a hall
at least 30' x 15' and well lighted
is necessary. It must be heated so
that fruit will not freeze at night
and to prevent chilling of the fingers of the packers.

Tomorrow night the Sandford

historical play, "Nero, the Gladiator," the stirring scenes of which,
as the title would indicate, carry
one back to the days of ancient
Rome, and the trials and persecutions amid which the early Christians fought for their faith.
In this age of light and frivolous
amusements it is indeed a great
relief to have an opportunity to see
a really great dramatic masterpiece
well played and properly produced.
The presentation of "Faust" xvhich
will be seen here at the Opera
House on the night of Saturday,
Dec. I 7, will be warmly welcomed
by all lovers of the best forms of
dramatic amusement. Sir Henry
Irving, on being asked which play
in all his repertoire he considered
had the most merit, unhesitatingly
replied, " Faust." The great actor
produced this play more than one
thousand times in London alone.

The Provincial Government has
decided to create a department of
railways and a bill for that purpose
will be introduced at the next
session of the legislature. There
are now many railways such as the
Canadian Northern Pacific, the
Portland Canal and V. &S. as well
as electric lines which will naturally
come under the jurisdiction of such
a department, and its work will no
doubt increase rapidly. No new
portfolio will be created for the
present. The new department of
railways will be attached to that of
public works and will be under
Hon. Thomas Taylor.
It is reported that many of the

experts, and establish branch
houses as they go along. Winnipeg
will be the distributing centre for
Manitoba and Regina for Saskatchewan.

That the fruit industry of the
state of California is in immediate
danger of destruction due to the
rapidly nearirig presence of the
dread Mediterranean fruit fly (Cer-
atitis Capitata) was acknowledged
by the state fruit convention; says
a report from Stockton, Cal; and
drastic steps were taken toward
securing protection. A resolution
is now in the course of construction
and the speciaMegislatiye committee will be asked to secure a quarantine law, a remedy endorsed by
the convention as the only one
which can fight the peril with any
degree of surety. The subject of
Mediterranean fruit fly was introduced in a sensational address by
Geo. Comper of the state commission of horticulture.. Mr. Comper
declared that the peril was but six
days distant from the state.
The flies are transported, he
claimed, in the fruit cargos of ships
the .flies flying ashore in many
places. He urged that this fault be
overcome by an inspection at every
port of call.
Several growers urged that a
special session of "the Legislature
be called to act on the matter.

Th* Pearl Hunters' Suparatitlon.
Tbe pearl busters of Borneo and the
adjacent Islands nave a peculiar superstition. Wben they open shells lu
search of pearls they take every ninth
find, whether it be large or small, and
put It Into a bottle, which Is kept
corked witb a dead man's finger. The
pearls ln the vial are known as "seed
pearls" or "breeding pearls," and the
native Borneose firmly believes that
tbey will reproduce tbelr kind. For
every pearl put Into the vial two
grains of rice are thrown In for the
pearls to "feed upon." Some whites
In Borneo believe as firmly ln tbe superstition as the natives do, and almost every hut along the coast has its
"dead finger" bottle, with from nine
to fifty seed pearls and twice that
number of rice grains carefully and
evenly stowed away among them.
That no results follow does not dim
the superstition.
Tha Wondsrful Toad Bone.
All early writers attribute wonderful
qualities to toads and frogs and tbe
various parts of their bodies. Pliny
believed, for Instance, that If a toad
was brought Into the mklst of a mob
or other large and unruly concourse of
people "silence would Instantly prevail." A small bone found ln the right
side of toads "of the proper age" wm
also believed to have powers over the
various elements. "By throwing this
bone Into a vessel of boiling water,"
says Pliny, "it will Immediately cool
It, tbe water refusing to boll again until tbe bone bas been removed. To
find this bone, expose the dead toad
on an ant bill. Wben tbe ants have
eaten her all away except tbe bones,
take each bone separately and drop It
into boiling water. Thus may the
wondrous toad bone be discovered."
