I regret-I am unable to meet vou
and the council for the presenting
of the   statement,   but   pressing
business compells my absence. -
Yours very truly,
, A letter was also read 'from the
Kelowna Benevolent Society asking
the council to deal with a case of
extreme poverty.
The mayor said they had no
particular department for dealing
,with such cases. He would therefore ask Aid. Cox to make enquiries
and report. 7 _

also been engaged for next Tuesday evening.
" Uncle Tom's Cabin " is booked
at the Opera House next Thursday,
Jan. 19th.
Mr. J. G. Fraser lelt Wednesday
morning for Vernon, where he has
the contract for the construction
of a house for J. Milligan.'
Mr. and Mrs. R. Sproul and family returned Wednesday from a
few week's trip to Vancouver, Vic
toria and other coast points.
Considering the unfavourable
state of the weather last Monday
night, there was an unusually large
gathering at the annual ratepayer's
meeting, where custom decrees
that the outgoing council shall give
an account of their stewardship
during the past twelve months.
Mr. R. H. Parkinson was elected
to preside.
Mayor Sutherland was the first
speaker. He said that his part of
the election was over, as he had to
thank the ratepayers for that day
electing him by acclamation for
another term of office. He had to
thank them because this year would
probably be the last for some time
in which he would serve in that
capacity, and probably for all time.
This was his sixth term in the
council, two as alderman, and four
as mayor. It had been a pleasant
time for him and he had been
interested in the work, and enjoyed
it. Of the twenty men who had
occupied seats on the council since
incorporation, he had sat with
nineteen of them. Their relations
had always been of a pleasant and
agreeable kind—perhaps because
he himself was not of a fighting
The • work during the last few
years, continued the Mayor, had
been a good deal lighter than, at
the beginning. The work had
been hardest during the first two
years. He had been associated iii
the early days with Mr. Bailey and
Mr. C. S. Smith. They had no city
solicitor then and no by-laws. All
these had to be drafted. During
his five years' service he had drafted all the by-laws, and he could
assure them had burnt a good deal
of midnight oil in the service of the
city. As there was no contest this
year for mayor he was free to tell
them these things without convey-
the impression that he was canvassing for votes.
Of all the years he had seived
on the council, he went on, none
had been more pleasant than the
last. All had worked harmoniously
together.- He would by to give
his hearers some short account of
the year's work.
Starting with the financial question
he said, they started the year's
work with arrears amounting to
$7,100. Deducting $3,600 unpaid
taxes and rates, left $3,500; which
amount was borrowed.
The matter of assessment was
first taken up in 1906, the amount
being then $250,000. In 1907 it
was7 $500,000r just"double: The
following year it was $750,000, a
50 per cent, increase, and last year
it had risen to $840,000. This
year the amount was $1,112,000,
an increase of. 32 per cent This
did not mean that the value of the
land had been raised, but improvements had been made and new
subdivisions marked out. This
year's increase of 32 per cent, was
due approximately 15 per cent, to
improvements, and 17 per cent, to
general increase of assessment.
The city had been fortunate during
the year in having a sub-division
registered by the car tracks, which
had materially increased the assessment.
During the past year they had
borrowed on debentures $ 18,000,
$15,000 for water extensions, and
$3,000 for school purposes. On
this they had paid interest for six
months. Next year, an increased
amount would be necessary to pay
interest for twelve months. • The
same kind of thing happened every
year. This year they had .had
$ 1,250 additional interest to pay
over last year. In all they had had
$2,230 make up. more than last
year's requirements. v This had to
be provided either by increasing
the taxes or in some other way.
The total tax levy this year had
been $26,370, or $708 lew than
last year. This increased the
amount to be made up to $2,938,
and adding this year's surplus of
$2901, meant that they had raised
or saved this year, $5,839.
This could only be done in two
ways. They could not cut down
the amount required for debentures
nor for_ school purposes, so they
had cut down the general rate to
6£ mills, a saving of $2)852. The
rest of the saving had been on-the
light and water plant..
Perhaps they should not have
had that $2,900 surplus, continued
the mayor. They might have
struck the rate at 20£ mills and
come out even. But in figuring
their estimates they had not taken
into account some savings ' which
had been effected in various
directions. For instance, in the
light and water they had figured
the monthly expense as last year at
$596, whereas it had been reduced
to $481. This they had not figured
Going on to the electric light
plant, this yeair it had practically
paid for itself. There had been a
total revenue of $ 13,333; the
operating expense, interest and
sinking fund, and additions to
plant amounted to $ 13,949. This
showed a loss of $616, but if the
additions to plant, which were'
permanent improvements had
been charged as they might have
been, to capital account, the plant
not only paid for itself, but showed
a saving of $1000 (applause).
When we considered that at
Vernon the operating expense of
the electric plant alone was over
double our own combined water
and light, he thought the plant was j
a credit to the city. He could not
of course say. what another council,
would do, but as they anticipated
an additional revenue next year of
$2,500 from the combined plants,
it was likely there would be a reduction in rates.
In referring to this year's waterworks extension, he said that this
year 25,000 feet or nearly five
miles of wood pipe had been
added, at an average cost installed
of 55c. per foot, as against $3.15
er foot for ten inch iron pipe and
2.82 for eight inch. The water
rates had caused a little trouble,
but he thought the rate now fixed
by by-law compared very favorably
with other cities.
Most of the work on the roads,
he continued, had been done in
the centre of the city, though
actually more gravelling had been
done than any year since < 1906.;
The work was ..not yet complete,
and when a covering of finer gravel
and a top finishofsand had. been
added we should have a street to
be proud of.
The debenture debt of the city
was now $163,000 made up as
follows: Local improvement $f7,-
000; water and light, $75,000;
streets and fire protection, $ 16,500;
schools, $17,500; parka, $37,000.
The first two paid for themselves,
while the others were raised from
taxes. The latter had been kept as
low as possible. It was right and
proper to raise money when it was
a good investment, but care should
be exercised when there was no
revenue in sight.
There were a number of things
to be taken up in the coming year,
said the Mayor. He would like
to see a great deal more cement
walks. This yea* the demand had
been so small as not to be worth
while issuing debentures for. They
would probably have a cement
walk from Pendozi street to the
Presbyterian church. There was
also a great probability that they
would be able to make a still further
reduction in the taxes.
In conclusion the mayor said
there were other things above the
financial question, to make the city
a good place for ourselves and
children to live in, and he thought
they had given them consideration
in the best interests of the community. : .
The mayor resumed his seat
amidst loud applause.
Alderman Jones said he was
pleased to see such a large audience to hear about city affairs. He
congratulated the city, on having a
man like Mayor Sutherland at the
head of affairs. He was of opinion
that he was fully deserving of the
confidence the people had shown
in their Mayor by electing him for
a further term of office. * It was not
necessary for him to speak continued Aid. Jones, on the finances
of the city. That had been already
dealt with by the Mayor. He was
personally gratified at the evidence
of prosperity shown by the statement. He would like however to
say something about other, committees he .had been connected
with. .'."..
Take the fire brigade. The city
had'now twenty active young men
who gave their services without
any pay at all from the city. In
material and equipment, hose, reel
etc., the city has paid out about
$ 1,000 in addition to a grant. of
$ 100. The fire hall had been fitted
up comfortably and a number of
the brigade were living there. They
had all witnessed the splendid
efforts of the brigade at the various
iires which occured., (applause).
He knew of no town where the
boy8 were more enthusiastic than
here. He could not leave the subject without paying a tribute to Mr.
F..M. Buckland, who was acting as
a kind of god-father to the boys,
and organized them into splendid
shape. They had now 1,700 feet of
hose and two reels, and a very
fair equipment. He hoped that
during the coming year the city
would be able to do more towards
the; support of the brigade. • He
suggested that accident insurance
policies might be furnished to the
young men who worked a considerable, risk .to life and limb.
They never puE" ih auy bills for
spoilt clothing or other loss, and
Mere always ready to turn out at
f ?■• o'clock in - the morning ■;■ in any.
kind of weather. He thought, the
city might be able to do a little more
for theiii. •   ;.;  . 7 •-.■.■A-••■-.-:-. :
Speaking of the public Park,
Aid. Jones said the council started
last year with a policy of econom-
ical.adminstration, and did not see
their way to spend any large - sum
on the park. Last year the money
spent-was from proceeds of debentures and not from current revenue.
Thip,year they had spent -nearly
$400 on flowers etc. He Suggested
that each year ornamental trees
should be planted and the old trees
gradually removed. In a few years
they would thus have a fine park
which would be a credit to the
town* 7
The cemetery, continued Aid.
Jones, as many knew, had been in
a bad enndition for the last few
years. No proper plan-was in existence and in some cases graves
hald been dug in the roadway. This
year a plan had been made and
the ground properly marked out,
and.people._.;could=now~'secure- a
proper deed from the city for
graves there. Records of burials
were also kept in books belonging
ao the city.
He confessed they had not done
enough on the streets. They had
been anxious to make both ends
meet If' they had known there
was so much of a surplus they
would have done more. He was
not altogether satisfied with the
way the streets were handled. He
advocated the purchase of a rock-
crusher, which; would supply rock
of the proper size, instead of either
too small and mixed with line clay,
or too large. He would also like
to see some experiments made in
oiling the streets to prevent dust.
The process had been tried at
various places in B. C. and reported
as satisfactory. He thanked the
electors for again electing him to
represent them and promised to
do his best in their interests.
Aid. Leckie then addressed the
meeting. He agreed, he said, with
Aid. Jones' eulogies of the Mayor.
Mr. Sutherland had a fad for
municipal work, a quality necessary
for success. The city was indebted to him in no small degree
for his untiring work in connection
with the by-laws. Speaking of his
own work, Aid. Leckie admitted
that he had'not always got along
quite pleasantly with those he had
had to deal with. The task he
had takenCup required a kicker,
and he had had every opportunity
to kick.    He had made certain
promises at the beginning of the
year, and he had endeavoured to
live up to them. They had got as
good a set of employees at the
power house as could be got anywhere. Travellers who knew
nothing of the affairs of the city
had declared that they had the
neatest little plant in B. C. The
men in charge were neither lazy
nor careless and it was a pleasure
to go over the plant. The only
misfortune which had happened
had been through a streak of
lightning, which had found him not
quite ready for it. He was negotiating about lightning arresters at the
time, but the lightning, would not
wait for him.
The plant, he continued, now
pays for itself. When they borrow
ed the $ 15,000 for the water works,
it was with the understanding that
it would not be expended until
there was revenue in sight. The
tax payers did not have to contribute anything.
He referred  to  the by-law   to
raise money to  extend   the  plant.
They could be sure of this that the
money would not be spent unless
there was revenue in sight.    At the:
present time they had a 150 horse
power  engine  working   on a 100
kilowatt generator.    At five o'clock
at the present season when  the
lights  came  on  it was working at
full  capacity.     They  would  thus
soon  need  a  new  plant to cope
with increasing  business.     Later
on in the night, however, the load
became  less,  and   then  the plant
was running wastefully.    He calculated that by providing  a  smaller
generator for the lighter load  they
would save a cord of wood a night.
Then there was  a   demand . for
power during the day.   He thought
it would be a good investment.
AWe't referred    to . the    efficient
maniter in iwhich the.pipe liije, had.
beenjaid.    It paid  to  get good
men when  work was to be done.
The running expense of the water
plant   compared - favorably   with
other towns, and the surplus this
year of $7,400 would pay interest
and sinking   fund on the outlay.
Thus- for the first' time the plant
would pay for itself.    He invited
questions oh the matter.   He had
kicked hard himself,  and  he expected there would be some kicks
in return; if he could not answer
them he was quite willing to  take
all that was coming to him.
Aid. Harvey then spoke on behalf of the Board of Works, of
which he was chairman, s The city,
he said, covered a great area in
proportion to its population.. It
was therefore difficult to keep up
with the work on streets and sidewalks in so young a city. They
could not attempt it all at once, or
the city would go bankrupt. The
idea was to do a little at once as
well as possible. He regretted the
fact that-during the--late- -summer
and fall he had been away from
town on business a great deal, and
much of his work had fallen on
others. He referred to the gravelling of Bernard ave. and Pendozi
street In the latter case they had
been caught by the weather, the

Completion of Important
Telephone Line
One of the important works
undertaken by the Dominion Government in British Columbia has
just been completed in the forging
of the final link in the iron circle
of the Kamloops-Okanagan telephone system by the construction
of a new telephone line between
Kamloops and Vernon by way of
Grand Prairie. In its completed
state the government telephone
line now runs in a full circle from
Kamloops through Nicola, Hedley,
Penticton, Kelowna and Vernon
back to Kamloops, with these six
offices acting as connecting points.
In addition there are three spurs,
Kamloops to Little Fort, Nicola to
Lower Nicola and Vernon to
Between Kelowna and Vernon
there are both a copper metallic
line, used exclusively for telophone
work, and a single iron wire for
telegraph service. This telephone
system is 372 miles around its entire circle and in all there are over
500 miles' of wire including the
spurs and the second circuit between Kelowna and VernoD.
Among the improvements in the
near future will be a considerable
amount of re-poling in the Otter
Valley and Similkameen section
and the construction • of a second
circuit;of metallic copper between
Kelowna and' Penticton. The
latter will give a copper metallic
service^between' ;Vernoh and Penticton, the. business section of the
system, The old iron wire will be
used exclusively for telegraph work
thus relieving the work of the
telephone between these points.. -\

of which are at some distance from
the railroad arid whose only connection with the larger centres*
apart from the telephone, is a mail
once a week.
As a connection)with a number
of both government and private
exchanges the wires are of inestimable value. The government
line has its own exchanges at
Hedley, Princeton, Merritt and
Nicola, on which there are over
100 local telephones. The system '
also connects the three exchanges
of the lake shore telephone at
Peachland, Penticton and Summer-
land, controlling nearly 300. instruments. Connection is also made
at Kamloops with the British Columbia system, at Vernon with the
Okanagan Company's system and
at Kelowna with Mr. Millie's private
exchange. The new line between
Vernon and Kamloops was constructed under Mr. G S. Stevens of
On Wednesday evening the
choir and Chancel Guild of St.
Michael's Church were entertained
at the home of the Rev. Thomas

of guests Were present, each wearing some device representing a
popular magazine, and much
amusement was derived from the

An explosion which might have
had still more disastrous results
occurred this morning at the house
of Mr. Cameron, on Bernard ave.

hot-water apparatus recently installed had frozen up in the night.
In ignorance of this a fire was
made in the stove as usual, with
the result that the water front exploded, shattering die stove and
doing considerable damage to the

News of the VaJey.
The s. s. Kaleden has been
drawn ashore ae Kaleden, and
will remain there through the winter.
The Hon. Price Ellison was
entertained last week at a luncheon
iii Vernon in honor or his return
from the Old Country. His long
end entertaining account of his
adventures there contains manv
timusing passages. Apples he said
■were grown in England under
{.•.'.ass that would cost a guineii each
.■.nd he proposed to show them
what they were like. Here Mr.
Ellison produced from his pocket
a parcel, and after unwinding
several layers of tissue paper he
disclosed a miserable sunken and
spotted specimen of an apple,
which looked infinitely-worse than
any wind...11 that could be picked
up in an Okanagan orchard. To
show that it was a fair specimen of
English fruit, he stated that it was
one of a lot that had been on the
table in a house where he had
dined. He had taken it ^vith the
permission cf the owner (laughter)
find it had come from the table of
wealthy people who had four but-
1 rs and footmen to serve the family and two guests when he was
with them. In contrast with these,
<nd as an evidence of what kind
c f markets awaited our fruit, he
s iid that he had seen Winter Bananas from this province sold in
London for a shilling apiece, in
Regent St., while a nice little paper
box containing six Spitzenbergs
brought four shillings and sixpence.
Me had sold boxt.s from the B. C.
exhibit for <_ ?>u_nr-a a box, while
others brought .wei.ty-five shillings
per box. One of the things that
'surprised the people of the Old
Country was the manner in which
our fruit "stood up." They could
hardly believe that the apples
shown had come six thousand
miles and had been handled several
-.tries <>n the r.-.-hvays and steamers.
He had given away a great many
boxes of apples as an advertisment;
and was particularly glad to be
able to announce that, after a considerable amount of red tape, he
had succeeded in presenting a
couple of boxes to His Majesty
King George V. (cheers).
An Excellent Plan
The Canadian Government
Annuities system which was approved by unanimous vote of
Parliament in 1908, and is available to everyone, presents exceptional advantages to the young or
middle-aged who are able to save
over a considerable period to
secure for their declining years an
income free from all possible
danger of loss or diminution, and
at the lowest possible cost. If the
person ha3 a lump sum saved up
which he or she could apply on
account of the purchase, the cost
for the remaining years would be
reduced to a greater or smaller
extent, according to the amount
which was paid in the lump sum.
For example, a man of 35 wishing
to purchase an annuity of $300 at
60 and having $500 in the savings
bank which he could apply on
on account of the purchase in a
lump sum could then complete his
contract for an annual payment of
$38.82, while if the $500 had not
been paid he would have had to
make an annual payment of $71.04.
In the event of his death before 60,
his heirs would of course receive
back the $500 as well as the annual
payments with 3 per cent, compound interest; and if he became
an invalid or disabled so that he
could not earn a livelihood, and
the amount that he had paid in
would yield him an income of $50
or more, he could draw his annuity
at his then age though he were
under 55 or 60. This points out
the advantage to a man or woman
who has been saving up for the
years when they are unable longer
to work of immediately transferring
any amount which they can spare
to their account for the purchase
of an annuity. The amount, if left
in the savings bank at 3 per cent,
would yield an income far short of
the amount required for their
Information may be had at the
Post Office, or of the Superintendent
of Annuities, Ottawa, of the plan

across long distances over the great
ravines that cut the heights which
caused- the development of a system
oi crude signalling by whistles into a
complete language. The like method
is employed. by the natives of the
Atlas Mountains, and it may be that
the primitive manner of -whistling
was brought thence to Gomera, since
long ago there was considerable emigration of the Africans to the Canaries. But the signalling in the Atlas
Mountains has never expanded beyond its original simplicity, while
Graduate Toronto in Gomera it has grown into a distinct language.
As far back as 1660, Dr. Sprat, who
was at that time. Bishop of Rochester, wrote a letter to the Royal Society, in .which he made mention of
an Englishman he hadf met at Teneriffe. This unfortunate man had
been made deaf for fifteen days by
the shock of a native's whistling at
his -ear7-. Indeed, as one reflects on
the distance that the sound is made
to carry, it becomes apparent that the
noise, must be fairly deafening at
close quarters. A hotelkeeper in
Santa Cruz de Teneriffe "employed-a"
KELOWNA Gomerian as kitchen girl. She had a
lover who worked in Laguna, almost
  five miles from tlie hotel.    Yet the
girl was accustomed to mount a hill
that rose at the back of the hotel, aiid

A famous writer said: "Man in general, or, as it is expressed, ■, on the
average, does not live above two and
twenty years, and during these; two
and twenty years he is liable to two
and twenty thousand evils, many of
which are incurable. Yet even in this
dreadful state men will strut and figure
on the stage of life. They make love
at tho hazard of destruction and intrigue, carry on war and form projects
just aa if they were to live in luxury
and delight for a thousand atfes."   '

"But, not so,long ago, on"one of my
pfficial^ excursions, I came upon the
'roasted body of a man, partially eat-
,en, hanging from a house, within easy
reach. As a matter of fact, thefind-
_ipg of such remains is quite a casual
"matter. It is as-though I went down
to my" pantry; I might find a leg of
mutton there, and.-I.might not.   '
"As Government influence extends,
however, the natives are easily per-,
fiuaded to give up even secret cannibalism.-
r "Possibly, the eating of human flesh
Ib frequently connected with some religious rites. With some, of ihe tribes,
"before a man-hunting expedition is en-
terecV upon, a sorcerer stands by the
canoe, calling;-loudly,■•'Shall...we go?
Shall we go!' Should the boat rock, it^
•is looked iipon as a propitious omen..
The canoe is quickly manned, one na-.

"As to cookingf soma -tribes prefer
to roast their "victims, and others to
boil them." One curious point-of. eti-<

. '^Unfortunately,, some of the most
intensely interesting statements re-'
gardihg the curious characteristics and'
customs ofc. tribes of the interior can
only be given as hearsay, though some
of these accounts'must be taken with
a grain of salt." 7
"Frequently, for .instance, I have
heard of a race of pigmies with tails.
If a few. of thesg imaginary being
could actually be found, they would
fee of extreme interest to men of science, or would make a fortune for the
first showman to, exploit them.
; "The Papuan is fairly truthful; but
I havelHkni-I-'of a native who boasted
that he-had not-only stan these tailed pigmies, but had practiced a practical joke on thean., These littls fellows are said to lira in houses set
on wooden piles,~and having holes in
the floor, through >hich the inhabitants allow their tails to dangle. Our
practical joker could not resist the
temptation,jind^Jieoeniin* to his own
acoount, le tied a knot in each tail,
roused the little man, and fled to the
hils. Tlie predicament of his victims
can better be imagined than described.
"Soma of the Papuan tribes live in
huts in small viuagea; but others
build huge houses, each consisting of
•a tall, narrow, structure, perhaps a
hundred yards long and seventy feet
high, with a roof reminding one of an
upturned oanoo. On© house will accommodate over on* hundred natives,
and sometimes many more.
"Most Papuans ,a» remarkable linguists, nearly every tribe having a
distinct language; and I have come
across individual natives speaking sev-
<en or eight tongues.
"In one part of the obuntry, husband and wife speak, to soms extent,
separate languages, though, of course,
each understands the other's tongue.
But each must use only his or her
own. By the way, I may mention that
this trait is by.no means uncommon
in the South Sea; Islands.
"And besides those two languages,
this tribe employs a third—especially
for fishing expeditions. These flshinc
excursions to a-neighboring island
are taken periodically, and the natives have a superstition that anyone
neglecting to use the .third language
on these occasions will find all sorts
of dreadful things happening to him.
These are not really distinct languages, but each contains many words
peculiar to itself.    4ft
"One mngistrate had an amusing deputation from an inland village, the
chief of which, having heard of the
white man's rule, was. desirous of
consulting him on an important social
question. Was it legal, he wanted to
know, for a widow to marry again?
When he was assured there was no
objection whatever to her doing so,
he and nis followers seemed mightily
pleased. He had heard, he explained, that we objected to cannibalism,

Every    Country   Has   Some   Legend
About the Old Disk's Inhabitant.
You young. fellows or fair maidens
who know how it is to spoon on
moonlight evenings ought to be interested in these tales, about the old
moon. In every country in the world
people have some story or other, to
tell about the mysterious spots on" the.
face of the moon. The Indians . of.
America tell two".legends concerning,
these spots. One declares that the'
man in the moon was a hunter with
his dog, banished to the sky for some
offence. The other story is that long
ago a group of Indian boys met every
evening to dance to the music of one.
of their number Who was a sweet
singer. One night, however, when
their parents had refused their request for dainties to make a great
feast, although they danced as usual,
the singer sang more sweetly than
ever before and as, he sang they
danced ever faster, till they finally
rose into the air, still whirling
around their leader. Though their
parents called them, they rose higher and higher. One boy, looking
back, fell to the earth and changed
into a pine tree. The others rose'toward the sky till they stepped into
the moon, where they can be seen
on any moonlight night. On certain
nights of the year Indians still climb
as high as possible' into pine treesr
and, stretching their arms toward
the heavens, chant : prayers to the
boys to bring blessings from the
moon to the earth. -
In New Zealand the Maoris say
that a man went out one.night and,
stumbling, sprained his ankle. He
cried so loudly that at last the moon
came down and took hold of him.
In his fright the. man seized a bush",
but the moon pulled that up by the
roots and sailed. back into the sky
with both man and bush.
In China moon worship still exists.
There they say that the man in the
moon arranges marriages and ties
together with a silken.cord the youths
and maidens whom Ee intends to
unite. In all probability the man in
the moon is the creator of the honeymoon. Sampan islanders believe that
the moon-came down, one night and.
stole the woman Sina, working in the
twilight. Never able to return to
earth, you can see her now in the
moon, with her mallet and the board:
on which she was beating, out bark-
to make cloth. - It is true that about;
nine days after;,the new moon a
pretty, unmistakably feminine face
appears on the western half of the
disk. ■.'"'■'. -
The Marechal Nlel Rose.
When Niel,- the French general, was
returning Tiome from the scene-of his
victories in the war between France
and Aus1.ria.JiB received from a pea-:
sant who wished' to honor the hero
a basket of 'beautiful pale. yellow
roses. One-of the stems the general
took to;a florist in Paris, in whose'
care it remained until it became a
thriving bush, covered with! blossoms.
Niel then took the plant as a gift to
the Empress Eugenie. She expressed
great admiration for the exquisite
flowers arid on learning that the rose
was nameless said:
"Then I'll name it. It shall be
'the Marechal NieT."
At the same time she bestowed upon
the astonished general" the jeweled
baton that betokened his promotion
to the high and. much coveted rank
of marshal of France.
.    Lattice Screem forJnns;.   '
Many quaint old inns are to be
seen in King's Lynn, England, and
the. sign of the Lattice Inn is one of
the oldest in existence. In the olden
times the windows of inns were kept
open, and in order to hide the revellers v ".thin a lattice screen, painted
red, was placed in the window.
There is an old saying: "As well
known by my wit as an alehouse by
a .red lattice." The lattices continued up to the beginning of ihe eighteenth century and when they disappeared from the windows they were
adopted as signs. The latter are
getting very scares and it is questionable whether half a dosen could
be found in England.

Qrunt-Who-Wm Tower.
Annie, the duchess in wooden shoes
who brought Brittany in the pocket
of her wedding gown to her husband,

of St. Malo protested against the
stronghold which she built to cow the
too independent Maloons ahe carved

The Judge's Whfte Gloves.
In the olden days judges were forbidden to wear gloves on the bench
for fear of bribes being dropped into
Hhem. If there wears no cases to be
tried, however, these was no opportunity for bribing, and the sherifis
might give the judge a pair of gloves;
hence the custom ot presenting a
judge with a pair ef white gloves
when he haa no oases to try at an assises. *

Town and Country
An unusually high wind on
Friday night or the small hours of
Saturday morning made things
pretty lively for about half an hour
or so. A good deal of damage
was done in and around town.
Several signs were torn down, and
old, fences laid on the ground.
The big sign over the Palace Hotel
was blo>vn clear across the roof
and dropped a heap of wreckage
by the water trough in main street.
The " Orchard City " sign over one
of the fi eight sheds, which served
to introduce the city to new arrivals
by the boat, was carried^ considerable distance and crashed into the
wall of the Royal Hotel, some of
the splinters even going as far es
the back of the L^ke View. The
Kelowna Furniture Co.'s sign also
left its moorings and came down.
A big tree at the corner of the Park
was bicvn over and the roots lifted
up the promenade several feet
high. The roof of the Rowcliffe
block also sustained considerable

The high winds this week have
made navigation on the lake a
somewhat difficult matter. Last
Monday morning the ss. Okanagan
was unable to get in to the wharf
to land passengers and mails from
the south. This is the first time
the Okanagan has had to miss
Kelowna on account of rough
weather. Mr. D. Lloyd-Jones, Mr.
A. Day, Mr. Leckie, and a number
of others who had been south for
the weekend had a long ride up
to the Landing and back. On
Monday afternoon a large crowd
assembled to witness the arrival of
the boat. The wind had abated
somewhat since morning, but was
still fairly strong, and several unsuccessful attempts were made
before a landing could be effected.

Libraries In Out of the Way Placet.
Whatever the economists and sentimentalists may say as to the advisability of women working outside of the
home—for very few have arisen who
object to their drudgery Inside of the
home—the fact remains patent that
women will work, and therefore those
who have the abfittjr and ambition
ought to foe directed to tne octupations
that are most congenial. The change
ln our social problems and the increasing scope of our country have opened
up all kinds of new fields for women.
For Instance, growing ln numbers
faster than the little red school-
houses" are the many district libraries
ln the country parts here or in the Inaccessible regions. These demand women workers often, women who will
not only help organise libraries ln comparatively isolated districts, but who
will start in operation circulating libraries ln tbe vary moots spots where
books are a treat In tbe larger towns
and cities, too, then* are numberless
opportunities for women librarians. Of
course to engage tn sueh work It is
necessary to have bad specific training. There are ln tUs vicinity a number of library training schools, and
their entrance, qualifications, vicinity,
etc., can be discovered by application to any person already officially
connected with a library. There are
great opportunities for women to advance in this field, and tbo salaries are
fair, ln some cases qaite munificent as
salaries go these day*.

A clever way to ask tbe men to select partners at an evening party is to

He spoke of the heavy cost of
upkeep of plank sidewalks after
they were a few years old, and
would like to see more cement
used. He also strongly advocated
a by-law for the protection of

it was an expense to keep down
weeds on the sides of the streets.

year, and regretted that business
prevented him from accepting
nomination again.
Aid. Cox was greeted with loud
applause. He said he was not going to make a speech. He had
attempted one a year ago and
made a muss of it, so he would
not try it again. He thanked the
ratepayers for having elected him
again for the third time to the
.council, and hoped he would be
able tp justify their confidence.
His work has been chiefly as health
officer. .He had only one man to
look after and he was a Scotchman
and he sometimes had a pretty
hard task with him. Never the less
his part of the work had gone on
pretty well (laughter arid applause).       . • .
There was one question, he said
which the council would have to
take up in the near future, and
that was a drainage system. In the
meantime he urged people to be
more careful about the sanitary
state of their back yards. It was
not pleasant to have to get the
police to enforce what should- be-
a duty with everyone.
He also referred to the fire limits
extension by-law which he did not
think would work any hardship.
There were so-many wooden places
going up which were increasing
the danger from fire.
He again thanked them for
electing him by acclamation (voice:
"You're all right," and applause).
Mr. R. A. Copeland said.he had
been asked by so many business
men that he had decided to offer
himself as a canidate for the south
ward. He felt he might possibly
be of some use in - improving the
streets which would be his chief
aim if elected. He thought the
roads should be made right before
bouleuards were considered.
Mr. A. W. Dalgleish. also spoke
briefly. 'He said he would not
canvass for votes but leave it for
the electors to decide. -
Mr. E. Newby thought the
financial statement should have
gone into more detail, so as to judge
better how things had been carried
on. He criticised some of the
remarks which had been made
with respect to the light plant. He
did not think our plant made such
a wonderful showing. Vernon
light, he had noted, was cheaper
and they were under a heavier expense for fuel. He questioned
Aid. Leckie as to the tenders for
wood pipe, and also as to the employment of one of his own men
on the water connection work, to
both of which, however, Mr. Leckie
had satisfactory replies. Mr. Newby
also spoke of the necessity of a
drainage system for the city. It
was the duty of the council to keep
that end in view. Should he be
elected, he said, he would do hi3
best for the city without fear or
favor. He had had considerable
experience in many branches of
city work and would use his best
endeavours in the ratepayers'
A vote of thanks to the retiring
council was moved by Mr. J. Ball,
in replying to which Mayor Sutherland referred in appreciative terms
to Aid. Stirling, who though absent,
deserved recognition for his untiring efforts for the good of the

to the votes of the ratepayers the

Sir William Willcocks,. the moat celebrated irrigation engineer in Europe,
:is working on plans for the restoration of the ancient irrigation system
that made Mesopotamia, one of the
richest countries in the world. In ancient times Mesopotamia was especially noted for its rich and fertile agricultural lands. In the land lay the
secret of the great wealth of Babylon
and Ninevah, but through the evolution of the centuries the land has suffered from neglect and that which
once furnished luxury to the denizen.-,
of th§ Babylonian palaces is now a
Sir William proposes, by dams and
canals, to store the floods that are
brought down from the mountains in
the spring, in enormous reservoirs for
use during the summer, and has indicated locations for at least five, which
will, he believes, answer every purpose. At least two of these locations
were used as reservoirs by the Babylonians and probably by previous civilizations, and Sir William will adapt
to modern use the same canals that
were then used to distribute the water
over the plains. Several dry river
beds can also bo made available and
thus economize the cost.
After the 3,000,000 acres that will be
first reclaimed have been sold and settled the area available for agriculture
can be doubled by the expenditure of
$15,000,COO additional, and ultimately
the gain would bs 6,000,000 acres capable of producing annually, according
to his estimates, 2,000,000 tons of
wheat, 4,000,000 hundred weight-of cotton and fabulous quantities of other
exportable products, in add.t.'on to
whatever food will be necessary to
support a population of a million people.
In addition to the agricultural products he promises pasturage for millions of sheep and goats and hundreds
of thousands of cattle in the delta,
and he would build a railway from
Bagdad to Damascus with branches
here and there to tap the harve.it
fields. The total length of this road
would be about 550 miles and, according to his estimates, it could be constructed for between $10,009,000 and

and hesitates about accepting the report. They do not seem to be able
to grasp the magnificent scheme, the
vastness of which bewilders them.
This attitude cannot be permanent because in a little while the agricultural

will "carry the scheme to a successful
realization and the "Garden of Paradise" will be reclaimed from the desert.-. V        •-■....

Perfection  of  Home  Life   Is  One  ef
- Her Highest Ambitions. I
The woman of Japan does not have,
to bother or interest herself in what
the   coming   fashions   are   in   dress.
She does not have to be prepared to'
change   her full   plaited short   skirt-
into a long, sweeping tight one or a
banded,    strapped    hobble    one—but
what she does have to do is to changeI
the color of her kimonos to carry out'
the Japanese idea of fashion.    Color
is the thing.    Her   kimono   remains|
the   same, but Madam Nippon  may!
be terribly out of fashion if she dons1
a kimono that is pink when the season's dictator of   women's   fashions
says   that   she   should   be   wearing
violet tones.    Another peculiarity of
Japanese fashion is that the older a
woman of that country becomes the1
shorter   and   smaller   must   be   her
kimono sleeves.
Japanese women are further advanced socially than they were before the new code ot 10 years ago, a
condition which has been brought
about largely through the difference
in the marriage laws. Now divorce
can only be procured through mutual
consent. Formerly a man could divorce his wife without any cause
whatsoever. According to the present
laws there are just two reasons for
divorcing a woman -one is unfaithfulness and the other is if she has
served a prison sentence of over a
year's time.
The girls of Japan are brought up
with different ideas of life from those
held by girls in America. They are
taught that their lives are to hold
suffering and care; that whatever
there is of happiness is an incident.
Marriage is looked forward to as one
of woman's duties and as a high service. Therefore she generally accepts her mother's choice of a husband without dissent, for she is
brought up to believe that her parents' judgment is best until she is
married. This explains why in that
country marriages, for the most part,
are satisfactory, while divorces are
much less frequent than in America.
Japanese women concern themselves not at all about politics, for it
is not customary for women to know
about such matters or to show curiosity about them. Whatever effort
they wish to spare from attending
the domestic duties is concentrated
on philanthropic and educational
questions. Domestic duties come first
of all, however, for these women take
the keenest interest in their home
lives, the highest ambition of a wife
being to perfect her own in this re- -
gard so far as she may be able.
The Mediaval Kitchen. \
It was the middle ages before the
kitchen had been raised to the dignity
of an established apartment. Strange
doings went on in those medieval
kitchens. Butchers slaughtered animals there, which were skinned and
dressed as well as cooked in the kit- '
chen. The family blacksmith kept hia
fire there and repaired the plows and
wheels of the estate. Coal began to
be used as a kitchen fuel in 1245,
though • not generally for 200 years
after. The oven did not come intoj ,
use until the year 1400, and then it1 '-
was the old-fashioned brick oven,
which persisted for hundreds of years.,
The stove when invented took thai
place of the separate oven and the!
fire place, with its hanging pots.
A      Railway Car Wheels. j
Everybody knows how the wheels i
of a railroad car are fastened to the.
axle.    They are shrunk on—that is,
put on hot and allowed to shrink in,
cooling so that they are practically a'
solid piece with the axle.   These cars
go around curves, and it will be ob-j'
served that the outer rail covers a'
great deal more ground than the inner one, so that to turn the curves!
and  finish  even  the outside  wheel
must of necessity travel considerably'
faster than the inner one.   Yet it is
fixed solidly to the axle and cannot
make a fraction of a revolution more    .,
than the other, one, yet the axle remains intact, and the curves are passed with untiring regularity.

Vocation and Avoeatton.
"Avocation" is one of those unfortunate words that are constantly being used in a wrong sense. Strictly
speaking, it refers to something that
calls a man away from the ordinary,
occupation of his daily life. If you
earn your living by drafting conveyances and interpreting legal subtleties
and also are often seen in leisure
hours with a camera in your hand and
have a dark room at home, then tbe
law is your vocation and photography
your avocation.—London Telegraph.   <

Beauties of Long Island.
A teacher tells me that at a Brooks
lyn school not long since the oUmt
in geography was asked, "What «»
some of the natural peculiarities of
Long Island?"   The pupils tried to
think, and after awhile a boy raised '
his hand.   "I know," said he. "Well;.
what are they?" asked the teacher. 17
"Why,  said the boy, with a triiim-s\$f
pliant look, "on the south side yon>;£ £$$
can see the sea, and on the north side, A'A
you can hear the sound." yJ

Government's Grant To
Apple Show.
Although it was a signal success
an* advertisement and as an
educative feature, the First Canadian Apple Show closed with a
deficit of $5,558. To enable the
promoters of the exhibition to meet
this deficit they came to the executive requiring a special grant of
$5000, despite the-fact that the
Provincial Government had found
itself unable to make jthe apple
show a grant when it was originally
promoted, the government have
already materially assisted the Vancouver exhibition. In view, however, of the unforeseen and unforeseeable circumstances which have
operated chiefly to occasion the
apple show deficit, the government
has found itself justified in promising that a sum of $4000 will be
placed in the^estimates at the approaching session which will reduce
the deficit very appreciably. Tn
addition Hon. Mr. Bowser has
recently received from the C, P. R.
Company a cheque for $1000 as a
complimentary donation, to assist
the apple show promoters in closing
their- accounts with credit.

The mayor said there was a very
severe penalty for such breaches
of the law.
Aid. Leckie observed that if there
was much of that kind of thing
going on it would be as well to
instruct the police to keep his eye
on the offenders.
It might be a good plan, said the
mayor, to give one of'them three
months in Kamloops. That would
probably have the effect of slopping it.
A petition was read from several

The lease of the ground on the
lake shore was submitted by the
Aquatic Association, with the request that it be put through and
signed before the old council's term
of office expired. The lease, which
was on the lines of an agreement
entered into by the Aquatic Association and the Council some time
ago, waa read by tbe clerk.
Aid. Joneo said it was advisable
that the matter should be gone
into very carefully. He advised
leaving it over until next meeting,
to give the council an opportunity
to consider it.
A motion was accordingly passed
to that effect.

No. 82 was then taken up. The
mayor asked if it would not be

matters which needed adjustment
in that neighborhood.
It was arranged to meet again
next Saturday evening at 8 o'clock.
