ins of Board of Trade
Reports Received Concerning Exhibits Sent to the Canadian
National Apple .Show
%
The Board of Trade held a meeting last Thursday evening, principally for the purpose of receiving
reports from Mr. F. R. E. DeHart
and Mr. B. McDonald with respect
to the exhibits of apples sent down
in their charge to the Canadian
National Apple Show recently held"
at Vancouver. Mr. P. DuMoulin,
the president^ took the chair.
Mr. M. Hereron in reply to a
question as to the improvements on
Mission Creek asked for by the
Board, reported that the government engineers were already at
work on the creek on the portion
referred to. A ..wall was being
built on the south side with the
object of stopping the under-mining of the bank. The creek was
being cleaned out at that point and
it was the intention of the government to make a good job of it.
The secretery, Mr. R. B. Kerr,
had an unusually large batch of
correspondence to read. Much of
this, however,, was relating to advertising, and offers of space from
various journals. In order to save
the time of the meeting, a proposal
was made that'correspondence relating to advertising should - be
referred to the Publicity Committee.
This wag put to the vote and
carried.   -y
A suggestion was made that the
Board take up the question of
labour, the pressing need of which,
it was pointed out, was becoming
a'serious problem for fruitgrowers.
7' Mr. B. McDonald drew'attention
to the circular which had been sent
round by the Fruitgrowers' Associ-
ation to its members. It would do
a great deal of good if the questions
there asked were carefully answered by all fruitgrowers.
, Mr. Pitcairn thought that as the
matter was being taken in hand by
the Fruitgrowers' 'Association, it
would serve no useful purpose for
the Board of Trade to deal with the
question individually. The Association represented the whole of the
province, and would carry a .great
deal more influence. A
- A communication was read from
the Winnipeg Bbard of Trade, enclosing a resolution pointing out
the advantages of . independent
government control of the Hudson's
Bay railway; This-resolution the
Kelowna .board was asked to
endorse.
~"'Mr.'R. B. Kerr spoke at some
length on the proposal, which he
said wad a most important one. It
was said that the new line would
bring the . wheat-growing sections
of the prairie provinces a thousand
miles nearer the European market.
The farmers should be given the
full benefit of this by having tKe
railway run by the government as
an independent line. It was certain
that if the undertaking was allowed to fell into the hands of the
other companies, the rates would
be put up in order to prevent
damage to their eastern lines.
A jnotion was passed that the
resolution be endorsed, and certified copies sent to Sir/ Wilfrid
Laurier, Mr. Graham and Mr. Martin Burrell.
A letter was read from Mr. J. L
Pridham, who is at present at the
coast, stating amongst other matters that he .understood that Mr.
F. R. E. DeHart had refused to sell
fruit to the Deputy Minister of
Agriculture fpr. sending to the Old
Country on the ground that no
Okanagan man was being sent
with the government's exhibit. This
action Mr. Pridham characterized
as unwise and childish.
Mr. DeHart, commenting upon
the letter, said that it did not, represent the facts. The District Exhibit, which was the one under his
charge, he had disposed of to the
best advantage, as he thought by
selling it for $50 to the Central
Okanagan Land Company, who
wished to exhibit it in Montreal
and other placet in the east. The
advertising thus secured yould be
just as good as if the fruit had gone
to the old  country.    As  to  an
Okanagan man going with the
government exhibit, he certainly
thought the valley should be
represented there. The Okanagan,
he understood, was sending from
70 to 80 per cent, of the fruit, and
a man.should be sent from here in
stead of sending men from the
Island or the Lower Mainland.
Mr. Leckie moved that a reply
be sent to Mr. Pridham stating that
Mr. DeHart had no authority from
the Board of Trade for any such
action.   This was passed.
Mr. J. W. Jones said that it was
an important matter to the valley
that an Okanagan man should be
sent with the government's exhibit
to the old country. He thought if
representations were made to the
government there should be no
difficulty about it.
Mr. Pitcairn objected. He did
not see how the government could
be expected to send a man to
boost one place more than another.
An Okanagan man might certainly
He expected to be better informed
on matters of fruitgrowing, but he
thought Mr. Bullock-Webster of
Keremeos was a very good man
for the purpose.
Mr. J. W. Jones, Mr. T. Lawson
and the president were appointed
to attend the meeting of the
Associated Boards of Trade to be
held at Vernon in January.
Mr. Rees, of the Royal Bank, Mr.
J. B. Whitehead, Mr. W. E. Adams
and Mr. Upton were elected new
members of the Board. 7
Mr. B. McDonald then presented
his statement of finances in connection with the car of Jonathans
taken down by him to the Apple
Show.
Cost of car as per invoice...... $1537.50
Expenses taking to show    409.7V
$1947.20
Return from sale of fruit......... $1500.00
Sweepstakes prize   1000.00
$2500.00
Leaving a balance exclusive of
$100 gold medal, to the credit of
the Board of Trade, of $552.80.
Mr. T. Lawson then read.a statement of the expenses and returns
of the district and limited displays
sent down to the show in charge
of, Mr. DeHart. Some difficulty
had been experienced in fixing the
cost to the Board, owing to the
fact that Mr. DeHart had taken a
large amount of fruit on his own
account, and the expenses of collecting, etc., coula bot Very well be
Jkspt separate. /ESs difficulty had
been got ever by ..ascertaining the
entire cost of the '258' boxes taken,
and then fixing the proportionate
cost of the 59 bozes included in
the Board of Trade's exhibits. The
statement then read as follows:
Cost of 49 boxes laid down in Van,..$218.49
Expense of setting up, decorating,
etc., the   District   Exhibit and
Limited Display       555.26
Boxes and crates....      6.25
$760.00
Returns from fruit sold $ 81 50
Cash prize District Exhibit  500.00
Cash prize Limited Display  125.00
$706.50
Excluding the value of the gold
medal won, and pending the settlement of a misunderstanding which
had arisen with the management of
the National Apple Show over the
payment of the special prize of
$500 donated by the National
Resources Security Co., Ltd., the
result showed a deficit of $73.50.
A good deal of discussion followed in an effort to arrive at the
exact position of the Board. Mr.
Lawson strongly deprecated the
unfair and ungenerous criticism of
Mr. DeHart in the matter of his expenses, and for the fact that the
cost of the exhibit had exceeded
the $500 voted for that purpose.
Even though a little more had
been spent than was voted, they
had won, and Kelowna had got a
magnificent advertisement at no
cost whatever to the Board. He
thought the members ought to be

Meeting of the
City Council
Aid. Cox Suggests  Extension
of Fire Limits
A meeting of 'he city council
was held last Monday, the Mayor,
Aldermen Harvey, Leckie, and
Jones being pre. ent.
The. following accounts were
referred to the finance committee
for payment:

The Electric Light By-law, No.
81, was then read a third time and
finally passed.
Aid. Cox brought up the matter
of fire limits, which he said he
would very much like to see extended. , As he had gone around
he had seen stove pipes sticking
out of from buildings, and all sorts
of dangerous conditions which
ought to be prevented. . He suggested extending the fire limit to
include another block oh the south.
A-lot of small buildings and shacks
were going up in that area which
were adding gseatly to the fire risk.
Mayor Sutherland thought that
the ordinary building by-law should
cover the matter of stovepipes, and
on reference this was found/to be_
.case.'' ■   -. ._•. A
Asked if he would like to bring
before the council a recommendation with respect to the extension
of the fire limits, Aid. Cox said he
certainly would, as the matter was
a most important one.
The meeting then .adjourned
until Saturday next, Dec. 2,4th at
8 p.m.
ons
Practically iii Same Position as
Before Dissolution
The British 'elections are concluded, and the result is as was expected, the parties standing practically in the same position as they
were before. The net gain to the
Libera!s_of. one seat justifies the
government in immediately proceeding to press forward a bill abolishing the veto power of the
House of Lords. The standing of
the parties is: Liberals 271, Nationalists 73, O'Brienites 11, Labor-
ites 43, Unionists 272.
The services next Sunday in the
Baptist church will be of a special
character. The subject in the morning will be "The meaning of
Christmas." In the evening the
theme will be "The realization of
Christmas." There will be special
music by the choir at both services
The following anthems will be
rendered : "It came upon the midnight clear." "All this night," "In
the fields/' Miss Fallse and Miss
Dorothy Evans will take the solo
parts. A cordial invitation is extended to all.
Mr. J. C. Collins left this morning for a short visit to the coast.
The old bridge at the five
bridges is being torn down and
removed this week.
The heavy fall of snow, with the
warm bright days, has made n
most seasonable Christmas.
Christmas stoxe decorations
have not been particularly in evidence this year. The unusual
rush of business, together with the
crowded state of the stores, not
giving much opportunity for fancy
display.
NCR more  we wish all our readers and
friends  the good old wish :
A  Merry  Christmas  and a
Happy and Prosperous
New Year/9
Lo, now is come ihe merry feast!
Let everyone be jolly,
Each room with ivy leaves is drest
And every post with holly.
Now all the neighbors' c/itmfteps
smoke:
And Christmas blocks are burning;
The ovens they with good things
choi\e,
And all the spiis are turning.
A Pretty Reception
' Mrs. Oxley held a reception on
Wednesday last, Dec. 14th, for the
first time since her marriage. Her
pretty home was beautifully decorated for the occasion. -. White
crysanthemurns. and carnations
wete plentifully displayed, and the
tea^ble looked'very pretty-with a
centrepiece and other decorations
of these blossoms. A most attractive effect was produced by the
stiearners of white ribbon which
were carried" from the corners of
the table to the chandelier above.
Mrs. Oxley received in her wed-
diess of French blue silk chiffon.
Mrs. Daniels, "whp received with
her, was gowned in white silk.
The hostess was assisted by Mrs.
J. Dayton Williams, who wore a
marquise dress of pale blue. The
dining room was in charge of Mrs.
Copeland. Mrs. Small served the
ices, while others who helped with
the refreshments were Miss Eva
and Fanny Copeland, Miss Scott,
Miss Adams, and Miss Knight.
The dooi was attended by little
Miss Hazel Williams, who was
daintily dressed in white. .Over 80
ladies called.
Skating appears as though it will
be at a premium this year. The
skating rink proprietors are still
waiting for a freeze.
The city council, according to
measurements taken last week,
have laid nearly five miles of
water mains this year.

Kelowna Cigars Win Favor
Steadily but surely Kelowna
tobacco is winning its way into
popular favor, and there is no
doubt that in .the near future the
industry will be conducted on a
much more extensive scale than at
present.
Lately Mr. Holman, the manager
of the Kelowna Tobacco Co., has
been in communication with the
purchasing agents of trie western
branch of the C.P.R., with the le-
sult that a trial order for Kelowna
brand cigars has already been forwarded, and In all probability,
before very long, Kelowna cigars
will be supplied exclusively on all
the CP.R. system west of Calgary.

Christmas Rally Day and Anniversary Service]were held in the
Mount View" Methodist' Sunday
School. ThVriioming service was
conducted -Iw^hi* Rev,.J.-Ball," of
Kelowna, who gave a very excellent and instructive address. A
notable feature at this service was
the Bible* knowledge contest conducted by Mr. A. E. Clarke, the
superintendent; Rev. Mr. Vance
and Dr. Baker acting as judges.
The questions were somewhat
difficult, covering Bible divisions,
writers; repeating Creed, Commandments, passages, etc. The
readiness with which the answers
were given was very creditable to
the contestants.. The. prizes -were
awarded as follows, and'presented
at the evening service: A 7
James Baker, 1st price &> diploma
Joy Fleming, 2nd prize
Kathleen Campbell, 3rd prize
Jean McDonald was awarded

The Rev. Mr. Vance, preached
in the evening, and gave an excellent talk on the duty of teachers
and officers ih the Sunday school,
and encouraged the scholars to
greater efforts in their work.
The annual day school entertainment and Christmas Tree was held
at the Rutland school on Friday
evening last. .A large number of
parents and friends .were .present,
and the scholars were out in full
force. A very substantial sum had
been donated in the district, and
the tree was consequently well
loaded with Christmas gifts.
Dr. Baker "occupied the clvolr.
Miss Lewis and Miss Bird had
undertaken the task of training the
children for their various parts,
and tlie long and- well rendered
programme spoke volumes for the
patience and perseverance which
had been expended upon it. Addresses were given by Mr.S. Sproul,
Mr. C. H. LeatKley, and Rev. Mr.
Vance. Santa Claus then made
his appearance; and the presents
were distributed amongst the anxiously waiting children.

HONOR LIST FOR DECEMBER. 1910.
Some years ago the copper from
Lord Nelson's flagship, "Victory"
was given by the Lords of the Admiralty, with the consent of King
Edward, to the British and Foreign
Sailor's Society, the oldest institution of its kind in the British Empire. This copper was placed on
sale in the form of souvenirs of
various designs, the proceeds going
to the above mentioned society
Through the munificence of Lord
Strathcona—truly "Canada's Grand
Old Man "—a quantity of this copper was made up into shields for
presentation to schools and col
leges throughout Canada. In every
case the shield is to become the
sole property of the school, but a
"warden"' is to be appointed an.
nually, his selection being based
on excellence in some particular
line of work, or on honor and in
tegrity of character.
Kelowna has been fortunate enough to obtain two of these shields
one for the high school and one
for the public school, and on Fri
day last they were formally presented, speeches being delivered by
Mayor Sutherland, Thos. Lawson
Secretary of the School Board, J. W.
Jones, Revs. Herdman, Davidson
and Welsh.
The wardens for the year are,
Rae Ritchie for the high school,
and Alwin Weddell for the public
school.

Mr. J. C. Metcalfe, market commissioner . under the' Department
of Agricultnre, has jsst issued his
genera! report covering his investigations in the prairie provinces
duripg the past summer and fall
into market bonditions. etc., there.
in. his report he says:
The*market has extended even
more rapidly than was anticipated
from the conditions known to exist
last year, and although our crop
was more than treble that of last
year, .there-has.hot been the slightest difficulty iii disposing of it at
prices profitable tb the growers.
Had pur. crop been dpuble what if
waa, it cdiild still have been disposed of. The fruit crop of Eastern Canada was very short this season, and this elimated competition
fronr this source almost entirely
outside bf Winnipeg. Apples and
grapes from Ontario are coming
freely at the date of this report but
the supply cannot be kept up as
stocks in Eastern Gonada are already seriously depleted.
The opinion of jobbers this season has been expressed mainly by
deeds, as they have .been extensive
buyefs.bf British Columbia fruits of
all kinds. Indeed, where last year
the:y were almost wholly indifferent
this' year they were verv keen to
get pur fruit, and to pay lh« highest market piices. Retailers concurred irfthe opinion of the jobbers af to thequality of our fruit.
The question of whether our
small- ffuit3 snailj'.be a$handled
through the jobbers or through the
retailers is-one that will have to be
dealt with "hiirnediately. Small
fruits wil[ have to bei.handled
through one or the otherexclusive-
ly, as otherwise our fruit would
come in competition with itself.
If handled through jobbers, the
jobbers would of necessity have to
furnish the machinery for distribution andjhujs-avoid.. ajl possibility
of any market; becoming glutted.
If supplied on order to the retailers,
it would be necessary for the fruit
organizations of British Columbia
to send out their own travelers and
solict the orders.
British Columbia cherries did better jhis year than'last owing to the
unusual dryness of the season, but
plums did nor-hold np well from
the Lower Mainland when shipped
by freight. All our large fruits
grown in the new sections of the
upper parts of the province, apples,
pears and crab-apples from the
Lower Mainland and Vancouver
Island are all £very acceptable to
the_f-tiit trade of the dffferent provinces, but particularly in the prov-
inde of Alberta, where, up to the
present time, the greater part of
our-output has been marketed. So
marked is this preference that they
will p^y more for our fruit than for
either Arhe'rican or Ontario fruit
To this, however, there are except-
ions~>-namely, the plums, prunes
peaches, and cherries from the
Lower Mainland, and plums, prune
«md peaches from ^Vancouver Island and Islands.
" The"piantirig of these" fruits
should be discouraged by the. Department in future and the planting of small fruits encouraged, also
such large fruits as apples, crab-
apples and pears' for which these
districts are .Well adapted/ The
reason for this is obvious. Our
climatic conditions. P.n the Lower
Mainland arid Islands, through the
humidity of meitmdsphere,.favor
the growth of fungous*.diseases,
and more particularly what is tailed "brown rot,*! in Plums, .prunes,
peaches and cherries; this fenders
them unfit ferlphg transportation,
as they altoge^eirTack the holding
-up qualities sd*esaential in successful fruit-shipping, esperisJly were
wejhaveltojfcbme in competition
with fruits from the upper part of
the province and from the American side. I found the prejudice
general on. the part of ji. bjbers retailers and consumers against fruits
from'these particalar districts. The
varieties most appreciated are:- .
Apples-Yellow Transparent,, and
Duchess for early ; Gravenstein
.and*Wealthy for fall..; JCm*. Mb-
7 IritQsh Red, Northern ;Spy7 and
Jonathan, for winter.
Pears~Bartlet8,  Beurre,   Clairgeau
arid Beurre DAnjou.
Cherries-Almost any variety'   df
good size that will ship and  arrive in good condition, and  the
same applies to the different varv
ieties of small fruits. .   ._'•
Peathei»~The:' best   varieties   are
Freestones (yellow flesh), Elbertas,
and Crawfofds. ,
With respect to holdings already
planted with plums, prunes and
peaches on Yannouycr Island, and
pluma, prunca, peaches and cher-
rie. on the Lower Mainland, the
bnl3r solution.is the local market
and the cannery.
All that v/as said last 5'ear as to
the need of increasing supplies
may'be said with equal truth this
year. The proof of this is that much
of the success of the season just
closing was due to our being able
to supply fruits of one .Variety in
larger quantities than was possible
last year. Fewer varieties ..and
larger quantities must be the motto
of British Columbia fruit-growers
for many years to come, always
bearing in mind the varieties suited
lo the different districts and the
markets to be supplied
Competition from the American
side and Ontario will be just as
keen as ever, but the past season
has given British Columbia a grip
on the trade which she did not
have before, as the presistant advertising of our fruit is beginning
to bring results, and wherever

em
fruit was given a fair trial it made
good. The largeness of our crop
this season was a factor also in
making jobbers, more willing to
trade with us than formerly.
While, as stated in my report
last year, the fruit-hbuses of the
prairie, provinces are largely controlled by American capital, the
claim which they made last year
that they were free tp buy the best
fruit in the cheapest market, has
been made good in a great measure
as.many of them have this season
bought more than the independant
houses.
The list of these independent
housea remains much the same as
last year; The Auction Mart in
Winnipeg is still carried on. These
houses claim a shortage of supply
of standard varteties on the part of
British Colombia growers, and that
they are prepared to buy larger
quantities as we produce them, and
meet the American compelion in
the. matter of prices.,._...
Jobbers state, with reference to
our piices, that' while "'they- are
willing to pay more for our-fruit
than they pay for American fruit,
they ars not willing to pay the extreme, difference asked by British
Columbia growers. Prices, on the
whole, nave been well maintained
for all fruits, with the possible exception peaches near the close of cliffe Block
the season. : Prices on this fruit
dropped to a point where the
profft to. the grower was very -narrow after all expenses were paid.
rThis difficulty might be. overcome:
by more carefuL attention to distribution.   7
In regard to the handling of fruits
'one of the three methods outlined
in my final peport last year is necessary, and I am of the opinion
that the marketing through the
present jobbing-houses will be the
most satisfactory to our growers
and shippers at che present time
at least. Either of the other methods would entail very great expense in getting under way, because, if not handled through present jobbing-houses these houses
vypuld come in active competion
with .-.our own, and price-cutting
would. be> the natural result. The
present jobbing hpuses now real
ize the great possibilities of fruit
grooving in British Columbia, and
have already to some'extent fulfilled their promise of last year of
coming in and buying o.ur fruit in
quantities and paying cash for it,
and this method of buying will unquestionably be extended.by.them
next year,. •
I have to report a ,very marked
improvement in the packing and
loading of cars. Manv of the jobbers have complimented the British Columbia people on this point
particularly, and through the past
season there- has been no loss on
this score. Nothing is so well done,
however, that it cannot be done
better, and for that reason, and
also for the benefit of new growers
who have not previously done any
packing , the directions of last year
are repeated:—
1. Place most perishable fruit—
pears for example—nearest the ice
bunkers.
2. Leave plenty of ventilation
along bottom of car and between
rows of crates.
3. Leave abundant space for
bracing at centre of car, and see
that all braces are strongly secured
to prevent slewing of crates when
cars are shunted.
1, Never fill a car more than
two-thirds full, as the natural heat
generated by the fruit rises, and
if there is any bad fruit in a car, it
is sure tb be on top.
In addition to the above , it 'is
very desirable to have the fruit as
cool as possible before it is packed.
For example, fruit picked one day
should not be packed until the
next, and should be kept in well
ventilate houses, where the cool
night air will have free access to

Fruit Commissioner's
Report.

it.
There is a very general outcry
on the part of jobbers and retailers
lhat express rates arc too high,
while on the other hand the Express Company claims persistently
that it is carrying British Columbia
fruit at a loss! The Lower Mainland growers, especially, are clamouring for a lower rate on ton and
a half lots to enable them to ship
their plums and prunes by express.
The express service has been
greatly improved during the last
year at all distributing and transfer
points, and any failure in the handling of our fruits have usually been
traced to new hands, the regular
staff, apparently, endeavouring to
improve the service. The point
made last year as to uneven platforms has not been disregarded.
New platforms have been laid at
some of the transfer points, and
further improvements of the same
kind are promised for the near
future. As regards freight rates,
some of the irregularities, have
been adjusted, and there is hope
for others being attended to. Speaking generally, freight rates are fairly
satisfactory.
Last year, in summing up my
report, I laid emphasis on a few
points, and all that was said then
can be said this year with increased earnestness. There is one point
however, which I wish to enlarge
upon, and that is co-operation. It
is only by gathering our fruit-growers into organizations, either large
or small, that we can hope to increase the supply of fruit, both
large and small; to improve the
quality of the fruit by stirring up
interest in more thorough cultivation and other methods, snch as
spraying, pruning thinning, etc.;
growing the varietes of fruit wanted by prairie markets, and in better packing and more care in shipping.
Further, it is only by co-operation that the fruit growers can control the sale of their fruit and the
uniformity of the pack. By cooperation it will be possible to ship
in carloads a uniform quality packed in a uniform manner. Too
much stress cannot be laid on
these things.
Along this line nothing would be
more valuable to the fruit-growers
than the establishment of Government schools or depots in the fruit
growing districts, where proper
methods of packing would be
taught at a small cost to the. individual. Bv co-operation also it
would be possible to lessen cost
of production in securing a supply
of labour, the cost of packages,
spraying material, and implements
used in orchard work; in fact, a
dozen ways.
The season just passed has
marked progress along many lines
for the British Columbia fruit-growers, and the success of the future
is largely in their own hands. With
a corresponding improvement in
each coming year the prophecy of
Earl Grey will be fulfilled, that our
province will find that she has a
greater asset in her orchards than
in her mines.

more than satisfied with the result.
Mr. DeHart admitted that he had
exceeded a little the specified sum-
It was all very well to fix a certain
amount here, but when he had-got
down to the show and had seen
what others were doing he had determined for the sake of the town
and his own reputation that no
effort must spared to win the
District Display. To lose that for
the want of a little additional expense would have been a great
disaster to Kelowna. He compared
the expenses of other towns which
had spent considerably more than
he had done, and won comparatively nothing.
Mr. Pitcairn proposed that the
statements as presented be accepted by the Board.
The discussion, however, still
continued and Mr. B. McDonald
pointed out that nothing had been
charged in his estimate for his own
time and that of Mr. J. Gibb. He
observed that as Mr. DeHart had
included in his charges sixteen
days at $5 a day he might as well
do the same. He would therefore
present a bill for $160 for himself
and Mr. Gibb.
After some more or less heated
discussion this was agreed to and
the statements were passed deducting $80 each for Mr. McDonald
and Mr. Gibb.
Mr. McDonald offered to return
ihe $80 if tbe Board would grant
him a life-membership.
Mr. Kerr proposed and Mr. De-
Hart fe;onded "That Mr. McDonald be granted a life-membership on account of his generous
return of $80 granted to him as
personal expenses while attending
the National Apple Show."
In a brief speech the president
offered the congratulations of the
Board to Mr. DeHart and Mr. McDonald for the splendid success
which hnd been achieved at the
show. This was endorsed by the
meeting amid much applause.
Mr. DeHart suggested as there
was no proper place to keep the
valuable medals and other trophies
which had been won on various
occasions, Mr. J. B. Knowles be
asked to take charge of them. Mr.
Knowles expressed his willingness
to do so.
The matter of the $500 special
prize on the District Display was
then discussed. It was stated the
management of the show were objecting to pay more than $500 on
the ground that the special prize
was substituted for the ordinary
prize of $500 previously announced, whereas it had been clearly
understood that it was in addition
to the regular prize and that the
total should be $1000.
The secretary was instructed to
write to the management asking
that the additional prize of $500 be
forwarded.
Mr. R. B. Kerr gave notice that
it would be necessary for the Board
to consider the appointment of a
paid secretary. Other places, he
pointed out, with far less work than
Kelowna were paying their secretaries. He suggested the appointment of a man at a salary of
8ay$l00 a year, who would thus
be able to give far more attention
tothe work than he possibly could.
The meeting then adjourned.

Admirable Description of This Sea In
Whose Depths We Live.
We live at the bottom of a mighty
sea, says a writer in giving a very entertaining and instructive article on
the ocean of air about us. Sometimes
from out its clear unsullied depths we
behold afar the glittering stars swinging in their everlasting orbits. At
other times the sea is dark and
murky, and even at noonday we may
not see aught of the Kins of Day save
a dull, coppery ball. This ocean is
wider and deeper and more easily
moved than the aqueous oceans which
separate continent from continent.
Sometimes it moves so gently to and
fro that the dewdrop on the fragrant
rose is undisturbed. At other times it
moves with such tremendous violence
that mighty oaks, root.cl for centuries,
are tossed r.bout like pipestetns.
Sometimes it wafts the white sailed
vessels across the sunlit seas to their
haven under tho hill. Again it bears
down upon them with terrible fury
and sends them to the harbor of aliasing ships beneath the seas.
It laps up the water from ocean and
river and returns it in beneficent rain
and clew. It gives to us the beautiful
azure of noonday, and the chromatic
glories of sunrise and sunset. It
brings the day earlier than it otherwise would come, and holds the sunlight at evening in the twilight's delightful glow. It gives us the breath
of life with its abundance of oxygen,
and provides for the food that is to
be our nourishment, as every morsel
of breadstuff that enters into our beings must be part of. the atmosphere.
Its constituents are so nicely and
so delicately balanced that a very
slight variation in their relative proportions would mean that no human
being, constituted as we are at present, could exist at all. It gives us of
its substance while we live and when
we die it gradually takes back the
materials it has loaned us, and we
return to the dust whence we sprang.
It gives us the glorious sky with its
wondrous clouds and shining light
and wards off the grim, eternal night
that is everywhere a hundred miles
above us.
It protects us from the fierce heat of
the sun. which would otherwise burn
us to a crisp. It wraps its fleecy
mantle about us, and keeps away the
icy cold of space, 460 degrees below
zero. It meets afar the fierce darts
of cosmic dust, those wanderers in
the eternities of space, and burns
them to ashes, before they can pierce
us like needle darts moving with a
velocity far greater than that of a
rifle'bullet.
It soothes us to sleep with its gentle, kindly touch, and brings cooling
zephyrs to stay the fever that burns
the invalid's cheek.
A Bet and   Its Odds.
A notorious gambler who died some
time ago once wagered a thousand
dollars to one that six would not be
thrown with a pair of dice ten times
in succession. His offer was taken
up by a fellow clubman. The dice
wore brought, and his opponent actually threw six nine times in succession. The gambler then offered $470
to bs free of the bet. The other man
declined, had his tenth throw and
failed to get another six. Just to
show how very little the average man
knows about the doctrine of chances,
a well known mathematician has
pointed out the real odds about this
bet. The chances were no less than
60,466,175 to 1 against six being
thrown ten times in succession. Therefore the real bet should have been
about $600,000 to a cent against such
a thing happening.
Stung.
He stood at a street corner and
mentally  kicked himself.
"I went into a drug store just now,"
he told a policeman, "and I asked a
bold female clerk for some cold cream
for my wife. She handed me out this
quart jar of the stuff, more than my
wife can use in ten years, and charged
me a dollar for it. On the way out
I saw a stack of twenty-five cent jara
of the same thing. Do you think a
man clerk would ever play a customer
a trick like that?"
"No, I don't," said the policeman.
"Why don't you take itbackP"
"And have her look at me the scornful way she would? Don't you ever
think it. I wouldn't go inside that
store again for $50."
He Got Off Easy.
■. An elderly darky was charged with
j the theft of some chickens. The ne-
, gro had the misfortune to be defended
by a young and inexperienced attorney, although it Is doubtful whether
any one could have secured his acquittal, the commission of the crime
having been proved beyond all doubt.
The darky received a pretty severe
sentence. "Tlmnk you. sah," said he
cheerfully, addressing the judge when
the sentence had been announced, i
"Dnt's mighty hard, sah, but it ain't
anywhere near what I 'speoted. I
thought, sah, dot between my chara<v
ter and dat speech of mart lawyer dat
you'd hang me shore!"
The Bundle of Hay.
"How is this, Herr Wirt?" exclaim-
ed the amazed traveler, going over the
items of food and drink on his bill.
"You have me charged with a bundle
of hay."
"Quite right, quite right," responded the jolly German landlord readily,
"you com pi ui ned last night of the
mooing of a cow in the adjoining stable, and I gave her a bundle of hay to
quiet her."
Some V/ar Expenses.
The Napoleonic wars cost England
$4,320,000,000. The war of 1870 between
France and Germany cost $3,300,009,-
000, and the civil war in the United
States exacted a toll from both sides
of over $6,600,000,000. The Boer war
cost Knglnnd over $1,000,000,000, and
the struggle between Russia and Japan cost more than twice that sum.

A Startling Statement
It has been said by those who
have investigated the matter carefully that, although at the age of
45 fully 80 per cent, of men are
established in whatever pursuit
they follow and are in receipt of
income's in excess of their expenditure, at the age of 60 it has been
found that 95 per" cerit.'. are dependent upon their daily earnings,

Many, rip doubt, read the despatch
from, Detroit -which recently appeared in the' Canadian papers, and
which described the condition of'a
man wHo-but' a little more than
forty years ago was a "financial
power "in that city, who had ^a
" palatial home "on one of tKe
most. fashionable thoroughfares,
entertained lavishly, and to whom
every person, high and low, was
prepared. „to pay homage. But
the fates were against him. He
suffered serious financial losses, and
when he began to go down hill he
found it was properly greased for
the occasion.' His friends deserted
him like rats iron a sinking ship,
and now at 80 years of age, after
his day's labour, Jhe wends his way
to the", city with the bent, broken
down old men who have influence
enough to have their names on the
city's pay roll.
The moral is that out of your
abundance something should be
laid aside for declining years, and
invested where thieves cannot
reach it, and where one cannot be
deprived of it in any possible way.

Nine persons out of every ten with
a cinder or any other foreign substance in the eye will instantly begin
to rub it with one baud while bunting

This is all wrong. The right way ia
not to rub the eye witb tbe cinder ln
it, but to rub the other as vigorously
as you like.
A few months ago I was riding on

rubbed tbe harder.
"I know the doctors think they know
It all, but they don't, and if you will
let tbat eye alone and work on tbe
other one you will soon have the cinder out," shouted the engineer.
I did as he directed and soon felt
the cinder down near tbe Inner can-

"Let it alone aud keep at tbe well

Local  option,  in  the form provided for by the Canada Temperance Act, last wee^ went down to
defeat in Prince Rupert and Chilliwack.   At  Chilliwack the returns
against prohibition were 132 to 107
upon a  total  poll  of 246, seven
papers  being spoiled.   At Prince
Rupert the temperance reform went
down before a vote of 272 to 169.
At the northern city the vote, was
small,  on   account    of    the    old
Dominion voters' list  being used.
Several prominent advocates of the
temperance cause have expressed
surprise j^jhe results of the polls,
inasmuch as the  places  at which
the voting occurred were considered, after months of careful preparation  on  the  part  of the   Local
Option  League,  to  be  the   most
suitable areas in which the new act
might be  tried.     In  order that a
poll under the Canada Temperance
Act may be taken, it is necessary,
according to that law that a petition,
signed by at least  twenty-five   per
cent, of the voters upon the lists of
the  city  or district intcrested.be
forwarded to the Dominion government, Vhich  then orders that the
poH be taken.   A straight majority
is   all   that   is   required   for   the
adoption   ,or    rejection    of    the
measure.    If the poll is in favor of
the act ninety days are given to the
liquor interests affected  in   which
to dispose of their wares and close
up shop.    Should the result of the
ballot be unfavorable to its  adoption a poll can not be again taken
before three years have elapsed.

warrior wbo slew seven Syrian chiefs'

PROVED  HISWORDS.
Still,  the  Philosopher  Didn't  Like  It
When Death Called.
A certain philosopher was in tbe
bablt of saying whenever he beard
tbat an old friend bad passed away:
"Ah, well, death comes to us all: It ia
no new tblug. It Is what we must expect. Pass ine the butter, my dear.
Yes, death cornea to all, and my
friend's time bad come."
Now.  Death overheard these philosophical   remarks  at  different  times,
and one day he showed himself to the
philosopher.
.  "1 am Death." said he simply.
"Go away!" said the man In a panic.
••1 am not ready for yon."
"Yes. but it is one of yonr favorite
truisms that Death comes to all, and 1
am but proving your words.'"
"(Jo nwny!   You are dreadful!"
"No more dreadful than I always
am Rut why have you changed so?
You have never feared tbe death that
has come to your friends. I never
heard yon sigh when I carried off your
old companions. You have always
said. -It Is the way of all flesh.' Shall
.1 irin'ke an exception In favor of your
flesh?"    '"■ V
"Yes. for 1 am not ready."
"But I am Your time bas come. Do
not repine. Your friends will go on
buttering their toast Tbey will take
It as philosophically as you bave taken
every other death."
And the philosopher and Death departed on a long Journey together.—

About Sneezing.
Hospital nurses wben assisting at a
delicate operation bave tbelr own way
of suppressing a cough or a sneeze.
The operator's attention must not be^
distracted for a moment Coughs and
sneezes, too, spread germs on surfaces
carefully rendered antiseptic. So every nurse soon learns to press her finger bard on the upper lip Immediately
nelow, tbe nose when she feels a cough
or a sneeze coming on. A pressure in
the neighborhood of tbe ear, too. or a
hard pressure on the roof of the mouth
will nip a cough in the bud. And tbe
will has great power to control a cough
or a sneeze.
' There wm_ a -French surgeon- who
used to say whenever he entered the
wards of the hospital. 'Tbe first patient wbo coughs gets no food today."
This method was usually successful.—

HOW IT HAPPENED.
The Explanation of the Automobile
Driver and a Climax.
After the victim of the accident was
carried to the sidewalk the automobile
driver turned bis machine and came
back and explained how It happened
witb considerable warmth.
"This woman," he volubly remarked
to the policeman, "was entirely to
blame. She ran around from ahead of
the street car and deliberately put herself lu my way. After she had dodged
the coal cart It was too late for me to
stop. 1 couldn't tell which way she
was going, and when I saw that she
wiih dazed and foolish I Jammed on
the brakes and tried to pass to the
left, but of course Bhe bad to run the
same way, and the consequence was
that In endeavoring to avoid a baby
carriage wltb twins ln It and an old
mail who was walking with a crutch
l suppose 1 must have hit her. But I
wasn't going more than two miles an
hour, and any woman who would
dodge around In that foolish way and
lose her head shouldn't be permitted
to go on the streets without a bunch
of guardians."
The policeman nodded.
"Come over to tbe sidewalk," he said.
"and take a look at her."
So the driver went to the curb with
the officer and looked at the unfortunate creature who had so actively contributed to her own disaster.
And, lo, It was only a dressmaker's
dummy that had fallen off the rear of
a delivery wagonl — Cleveland Plain
Dealer.
HIS ONLY REGRET.
The   Sorrow   That  Consumed   Biehat
When He Was Dying.
Over a century ago died Xavler Biehat, the famous physician and anatomist, author of "L'Anatomie Gen-
erale." He probably dissected more
human corpses than any other man ln
the world's history. He established a
record wben he opened 626 bodies during one winter.
Of his nerve a tale Is told. When
he lay ou his deathbed he called bis
colleagues to him and said: "Dear
friends. I am done, but what comforts
me is the fact that my case Is a remarkable one. 1 have had unusual
symptoms for some days which I have
analyzed. They have greatly surprised me." Tbe doctors sought to
reassure bim. He answered that be
was under no Illusion with regard to
himself. "1 shall die fairly satisfied
with my life and go to the grave with
only one regret, one great sorrow."
"What Is tbat?" he was asked. "1
am distressed tbat after death 1 cannot dissect my own body. 1 could, i
am certain, have made some beautiful
scientific discoveries." Then he sank
back, murmurlug: "1 must not think
about it   It won't bear thinking of.'*-
