The   meeting   then   adjourned
until Tuesday, Dec. 27.  -
The business of arranging for the
election of a new council was then
taken up, and'the following motion
- passed: ". That nominations for
Mayor and Aldermen for the
Municipal Council of the City and
for School Trustees for tne ensuing
year be held oh the'second Monday of January. 1911, from 12
o'clock noon to 2 o'clock p.m. at
the Council Chamber, Kelowna,
and that G. H, Dunn be appointed
returning officer. That the poll be
-opened at the Council Chamber
:• for the election of Mayor, Aldermen and School Trustees, if a poll
be." required, on the following
Thursday from 9. o'clock a.m. to 7
o'clock p.m., and that, the said
returning officer preside at such
polling place,"
The mayor and Aid. Jones were
appointed a committee to engage
a hall and arrange for the usual
public meeting to discuss municipal
affairs. -
Aid. Cox then introduced By-law
No. 82, which seeks to extend the
existing fire limits one block further
south.   The fire limits at present
extend from Abbott street on the.
west to Ellis street on the east.
The new  addition   will   take -in
blocks 8,9, 10 and 11 of Map 462,
that is southward to" Leon avenue.
., An extension of half a block is also
. provided on the north, which will
- include lots I to 6 in blocks 18 and
Mayor Sutherland asked if the
council thought the by-law would
work any hardship upon any of
7 mi^roperiywnersr -^ --y-
r, The council generally, were "of
opinion that property owners
eventually reaped the benefit - of
the erection of good, substantial
buildings, and at the same time
they were an advantage and a pre
tection to the business part of the
.'city. 7'/     7
A petition signed by owners of
property amounting to more than
ten per cent, of the total assessed
value for the year 1910 was presented by Aid. Leckie, requesting
the council to borrow the sum of
$7000 by debentures for the purpose of making additions to and-
improving the power plant.
It was explained that the proposed addition was to include another
and smaller engine arid dynamo
which could be run either in conjunction with the present plant,
thereby increasing its capacity, or
separately for lighter loads, such as
the night shift. It was pointed out
that the lightness of the load at
certain hours made the running of
the big plant wasteful, and that the
economy of having a smaller
plant for use on thest occasions
would be considerable. It might
also be possible io run the smaller
unit to provide power in the daytime.
' It was also proposed tp increase
the capacity of the water plant by
the addition of another pump. ;:
The proposals were embodied
into the form of a by-law, No, 83 J homZ
which was g)ven its'first reading.    | that.
The council met again on Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock, the
Mayor, Aid. Leckie, Harvey and
Jones being present.
The minutes of the last meeting
having been disposed of, By-law
No. 82, respecting the extension of
the fire limits, was read a second
time. By-law No. 83, which is to
borrow $7000 for additions to the
power house plant, was also read
a second time.
No amendments being suggested,
the two by-laws were read a third
By-law No. 83 being a money
by-law had to be submitted to the
vote of the electors, and the following motion was passed: " That
the voting on By-law Nd. 83 be
held in the council chamber on
Thursday, Jan, 12 next, between
the hours of 9 am. and 7p.m!, and
that -G. H. Dunn be returning
: This would brjlng the voting onto
the same day a's t}ie municipal
elections. -        ,'■,'.'.
The meeting thenv adjourned
until Tuesday, Jan. 3, at 8 p.m.
Many Important Matters to be
Dealt With
Masonic Banquet
- The local members- of the
Masonic Lodge held the annual
banquet and election of officers in
Raymera' Hall last Tuesday evening. There wa* a large gathering,
including many' visiting brethren,
and the function was a highly enjoyable one. The toast list included: "King and Craft," "Grand
Lodge of B.C.," "Sister Jurisdictions." " Visiting Brethren," "Past-
masters of St. George's Lodge/'
'VOmcera of the Lodge."
The following officers were appointed : W. M., D. W Sutherland ASen. Warden, Dr. - Knox;
Jun.Warden, H. B. Burtch ; Sec-
retary, P. B. Willits; Treasurer, H.
W. Raymer;. Sen. Deacon, Geo.

The annual meeting of the B. C.
Fruit ^Growers' Association will be
held in Victoria on Jan. 6 and 7
next, under the auspices of the
Department of Agriculture. Fruit
growers and others interested in
the industry are cordially invited
I to be present and take part in the
proceedings. '
Since reorganizing last April
this associarion has trebled in me-
bership and now includes the great
bulk of the most progressive fruit
growers of the province. This
meetimg will be arranged to encourage an exchange of ideas and
conclusions on the results of the
past season and will be valuable in
assisting fruit growers to plan for
next season's work.
The fruit season of 1910, now
practically closed, marks a new
high record for total 'shipments
and total returns received. The
Association meeting will give you
a good opportunity to talk over
methods of increasing the net
prices to the grower without increasing it tb. the consumer.
The particular problems for careful discussion will, be first freight
and express rates.- C. P. R. and
Dominion Express officials- have
accepted ah jnvitation to be present. Strong Committees on this
subject have been appointed and
resolutions sent in to the secretary
on any point concerning special
freight rates and service, will
ceive careful and impartial
The discussion oh the marketing
of the past year will be especially
interesting because there will be
present a number of..'.fruit, jobbers

The annual general meeting of

Late W. C* Cameron
An interesting feature of the
proceedings in connection with the
Christmas tree and entertainment
of Knox church Sunday School held
on the evening of Dec. 22, was the
presentation of a purse containing
the sum of $87 to Rev. A. W. K.
and Mrs. Herdman, on behalf of
the congregation. A loyal address
was delivered by Mr. Boyer couched in most happy terms and with
felicitous expressions' of goodwill
and appreciation, and suitably
replied to by the pastor, though
entirely taken by surprise.
The Communion'will Tbe dispensed in Kelowna and Benvoulin
Presbyterian churches on New
Year's day, and preliminary preparatory services held in Bethel
church, Benvoulin, on Thursday,
29 inst., and Knox church, Kelowna,
on Friday, 30th inst, at 7.30 p.m.
An additional sorrow to the
Cameron family came yesterday
when Miss Winter, sister to Mrs.
Cameron, passed away after a long
illness. The funeral takes place
The curling rink has been cleared up and made ready for business
during the week. By a curious
coincidence the snowstorm which
caused Vernon's new rink to collapse also damaged a section of
the roof of Kelowna's rink. A few
work, however, would   fix
Many people of Kelowna and
district heard with regret of the
sad death, at Rochester, Min., of
Mr. W. C. Cameron, one of the
principal fruitgrowers of the neighborhood, and pioneer of the valley.
The deceased gentleman' had been
in poor health for some time past,
and had undertaken' the long
jcurney-=t©,-^_\©eucotcf-tb Undergo
an operation there. The operation
however- was unavailing, and Mr.
Cameron passed away onDec.20th.
The remains Were at once removed
to Kelowna for interment.
; The funeral took place last Tuesday. An impressive service was
held at 2 o'clock in the St. Michael's
Church, the Rev. Thos. Greene
officiating. The church was filled
to the doors, an evidence of the
esteem in which the deceased was
held. The choir were in attendance, and rendered suitable music.
The cortege then, proceeded to the
cemetery, where the interment took
place. A
The late Mr. Cameron was a
Scotchman by birth, but had lived
for many years in Canada. Seven
years ago he came to Kelowna
from Edgele}', in the. northwest,
and settled on the Guisachan ranch,
formerly a part of the extensive
estate of the Ear) of Aberdeen.
During all his residence here he
has been actively associated with
many of the important movements
of the district. At the time of his
death he was president of the
Farmers' Exchange, president of
Hospital board, and a member of
many other associations. He was
an enthusiastic Churchman, and
had been for six years past people's
warden at St. Michael's. His death
will be regretted by a large circle
of friends, and sympathy with the
family in their bereavement
. Commenting upon the statement
the president said the Association
was not in bad shape, the present
worth being over $1548. Of this
about $1240 had been spent in enlarging the building, improvements
to the grounds, electric light, etc.,
leaving an actual cash balance vto
start the next year of about $308.
They had a lease of the grounds
from the-city for ten years at $1
per year.
The secretary then read the statement of receipts and expenditure
connected with the Faiy^air.
Receipts ""totalling $ 1780^were
shown an increase of nearly $400
over last year. Against this was an
expenditure of $1521.78, showing
net^prbceeds of $258.22.... The
amount expended in prize money
to exhibitors was $567.25 an increase of about $120 over last year.
The result of the Westminster
exhibit showed a surplus of $33.61.
This would have been larger but
for the unfortunate loss of some of
their best fruit which had been
sent to the show. The fruit had
been placed in cold storage in
Vancouver* where it was allowed to
freeze, with * the result that it was
unfit for exhibition. They had
thus missed many prizes they would
otherwise have won, as well as the
selling value of the fruit.
A vote of tnanks was given to
Mr. A. E. Boyer for the success
which had attended the exhibit
sent down in his charge to the
New Westminster Fair.
In replying Mr. Boyer said he
wished to acknowledge the valuable
assistance that had been ^rendered
him in the. preparation of the exhibit. The surplus might have
been larger but for the loss referred
to. The fruit might, also have been
sold for more than was paid by
the Provincial Government, but he
had considered the advertising secured by selling to the government
worth the small sacrifice.
The financial statements were
then passed.
Mr. W Dawson, of Peachland,
the principal exhibitor of poultry
at the last /Fall Fair, said he had
attended the meeting to see if he
could not get the directors to have
single classes for poultry instead
of pairs. He had come very near
losing several valuable birds by
sending them in pairs. Kelowna
was the only place where such a
rule was in force. He had some
hard things to say generally about
the management of the poultry
section, the quality of the judging
which had passed birds which
should have been hopelessly disqualified, and about the kind of
pens provided for the accommodation of the birds. He had won a
cup, too, at the show, which he
had not yet received. It looked as
though  Kelowna  did not want to
and  they  had. said nothing about
the matter.
Mr. Weeks objected to the substitution in the prize list of long
white carrots for short ones, as the
latter was the staple variety. He
also criticised the " bread and
butter corner," which was given up
to flies and confusion for want of
room and proper keeping arrangements, especially in the case of the
The president offered the thanks
of the Association to the directors,
on whom the bulk of the work fell,'
and hoped they would be given
more encouragement by an increased membership. They had
the grounds,Nthe buildings, and the
men, and there was no reason why
they should not have the biggest
show in the valley. ■''..,
The question bf amalgamation
of the fairs in the valley into one
big one, to be held alternately at
the principal towns in the valley,
was discussed at some length.
The suggestion, however, which
emanated from Vemon, found
very little favor, and was unanimously turned down. 7
The following directors were appointed for the ensuing year:
P. DuMoulin (pres.), W.GBlack-
wopdr (vice-pres.), A. W. Hamilton
(sec.-treas.),7D. W." Sutherland, H.
W. Raymer, A. McLellan, M. Hereron, B. McDonald, A. E. Boyer,

man, W. Dawson (Peachland).
Coming Municipal
.The date' of nomination for
mayor, aldermen and school trustee has been fixed fbr Monday,
Jan. 9th, the election to follow on
Thursday, the 12th. Litde interest
is being displayed by the general
public in the question of who shall
represent them. Although many
contradictory rumors are floating
around as usual it is impossible to
make any definite statements until
the actual nominations take place.
It is practically certain, however,
that Mayor Sutherland will again
offer himself as mayof of the city.
Since the incorporation bf the city
some six years ago, Mr. Sutherland
has sat on ever council except last
year's, and has occupied the mayoral chair three years. Aid. Jones
and Cox will again run for the

Railway Commission Decides
Present Tariffs Too High
Judgment wa£ delivered by the
railway commission the other day
as a result of their enquiry into express rates in Canada. The board
decides that the tariffs of the Canadian companies are too high and
that the forms of contract between
shippers and the companies are
unfair and must be replaced. New
tariffs must be filed within the
next three months.
The opinion. is expressed that
the capitalization of the companies
is far too high, yet the companies
are. really only agents for the railway. The companies pay for
station facilities much more than
they should, the presumption being that is a convenient way of
disposing of excess profits.
It is''noted that the Canadian
Express Company, when bought
by the Grand Trunk Railway in
1892 for $660,000, was valued at
$60,000, $600,000. being presumably for the franchise. The $60,-
000 has grown to $212,719 and
there are three millions of stock
outstanding in the hands of trustees of the Grand Trunk Railway, ,
All there is in tangible assets to
represent the three millions is$212,-
719. A
The Dominion Express Comp-.
any, controlled  by the Canadian \
Pacific Railway, is  capitalized  at-'
two million dollars. All the actual   .
cash ever paid into the  company,
so far as the board could ascertain
was $24,500. The assets now stand

The Christmas entertainment
of the Baptist Sunday school, held
Wednesday evening was a very
successlul afiair. The attendance
of parents and friends was large.
All the numbers on .the program
were contributed by members of
the school, and were good. The
chorus singing deserves special
mention, as each number was not
only well rendered showing careful training, but there was plainly
indicated the presence of many
voices posessing sweetness of tone
and much power of expression. As
usual on such occasions Santa
Claus appeared on the platform in
due time to the immense delight
of the children. After the distribution of the presents from a well
loaded tree the entertainment was
brought to a close with the singing
of the National Anthem.
yet two millions of fully paid up
stock is outstanding.
7 Out of a total revenue of $21.-
473,696 earned by the Dominion
Express in seven years prior to 1909
$13,409,240 or 63.9 per cent, was
paid to the Canadian pacific Railway. During the same period the
Canadian Express paid $8,467,307
or 55 per cent out of $13,362,266
to the Grand Trunk Railway. The,
board states that there is no reason
for the existence of separate companies to handle the express business.
Dealing with the proposal of the
fruit-growers that an order should
be issued in respect of the.rough
handling of fruit, the judgment
says that nothing would be accomplished by this. An order of the
board would not prevent an employe damaging or pilfering. Besides any action for damage lies
with the shipper. The board orders the Dominion Express Company reduce its carload rate on
fruit from Ontario shipping points

Town and Country
The Kelowna Band had a good
time Christmas morning, and incidentally raised quite a sum of
money to swell their funds. Hiring
a sleigh, they made a tour of the
principal residences, playing the
old familiar Christmas tunes. The
sound of their music, the deep
snow, the bright weather and the
merry sound of sleigh bells all
combined to make a genuine old-
fashioned Christmas. On New
Year's day the boys are going to
complete the circuit^of the town by
giving the residents over the creek
a treat.
Mr. A. Wade, of Penticton, was
a visitor in town this week.
The date of the production of
" The Messiah" by the Musical
and Dramatic Society has been
again altered, this time to Tuesday
next, Jan. 3rd. The rush of bookings at the Opera House just now
leaves tvery little room for choice
in the fixing of dates. Although
most people will have heard the
" Messiah " at some time or other,
yet like Christmas itself Handel's
great work is ever new, and at the
hands of the present chorus should
be rendered in first-rate maner.

Christmas Day services at the
Presbyterian church included
special music of a seasonable
nature. Several anthems usually
associated, with Christmas time
were sung by a large choir under
the leadership of Mr. J. N. Thompson, and the hymns chosen were
the old favourites one welcomes
every year. Appropriate sermons
were preached by the Rev. A. W.
K. Herdman in the morning on
' The Birth of Christ into the World,'
and in the evening on the text:
" Grace be unto them that love
the Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity."
The evening service closed with a
spirited rendering of the Hallelujah
chorus. Mrs. F. Davis presided at
the piano.

The great advantage of the purchase of Canadian Government
Annuities for their Children should
appeal to all parents, for the annual
payments are.sp small that provision for their future may be made
with little, if any, present sacrifice.
For example, an Annuity of $100
payable at'sixty may be secured
for a boy who was five last birth^
day for an annual payment of only
$4.75, or less than ten.cents per
week, or for a total sum paid in of
$261.25. In the event of the death
of the child before he was sixty,
all the money that had been paid
in with 3 per cent compound interest would be refunded to his
heir?. When the boy arrived at an
age when he was earning for himself, he could carry on his own
contract to completion to a rate
far below what he could have obtained at his then age.
It is the custom pf any parent to
spend on their children at Christmas time amounts which al othei
times Qf the year they feel they
could not afford, and too frequently ^re the purchases made of no
lasting or perminent benefit. Would
it not be a better plan to start each
child on the roa'd-to the purchase
of a Canadian Government Annuity
and continue the "box" every
Christmas until he was able to
carry it f^r himself ? The child if
he lived would remember with
gratitude Santa Claus' visits.
The following extract from a
letter received -from the manager
pf one of Canada's leading Insurance companies shows what he
thinks of the Annuity proposition.
.".In discussing the system of
Government Annuities with ray
friends from time to time I bave
always frankly stated that in my
opinion the benefits offered for the
rates chaiged are exceedingly - liberal, and that I dp not know of.
any instution which could possibly
afford to offer terms so advantageous. If the general working population of Canada were able to
realize the favourable basis on
which Annuities could be secured
from the government, there would
be verylifew among the thrifty and
thoughtful who would not take advantage thereof.
Information as to how the purchase may be made and of the
cost at any age will be supplied
you at the Post Office, or by th^

OF  40,000   DEAD.
Roofless Houses and Cavernous Windows Strike Terror to the Hearts of
Sightseers—Vegetation Now Covering Many Ruins—It Was the Wickedest Spot In the Whole West In-
dies—Only One Man Escaped.
"It is men, not walls, that make a
city," the Greek maxim ran, and
inure, it is living men, writes a correspondent o£ The London Times. For
tho walls of St. Pierre are there still,
nud probably no fewer than 40,000 of
its inhabitants are there also. But
they have been asleep these eight
yuu_ now. And it is extraordinarily
impressive, this white, sightless skeleton of a dead city.
In orderly rows tlio houses stand as
seen from the sen, the streets rising
in tier upon well graded tier back
from the shore to tin- hills. But every
street is sik'iit, every house roofless,
every windw.v f;i\onious and blind.

There are legends now of blasphemous lites which were in progres.
when the "fire from the Lord out of
heaven" was rained down — legends
which have probably grown up since
the event. " But there seems to have
been good ground for that description,
"the wickedest spot in the West Indies." Aud of over .0,000 people who
were presumably in the city at the
time only one man escaped, prisoner
under sentence of death for murder
confined in a cell impervious to the
flames and fumes, and" he only escaped to die of the shock a few days later.

An   Odd   Situation,   Yet   It   Is   the
World's Greatest Danger.
Nitrogen is possibly the oddest of
all the chemical elements. It has no
taste, no color, no odor, no marked
aitinity for other elements. It is neutral, negative and a non-3upporter of
life and combustion. Nevertheless, it
is a very important element. It constitutes the main difference between
the animal and vegetable kingdoms.
It is the basis of practically every, explosive known to science, and the
frightful power of dynamite, nitroglycerine, cordite and gunpowder ia
due to this queer element.
A trace of this harmless nitrogen,
added to a bit -of the fluffy, innocent
cotton so common in our households,
converts it into the deadly guncotton.
Although it has no odor, yet when it
is combined with hydrogen, another
gas without odor, it forms the strong-
smelling gas known as ammonia. The
sweetest perfumes known to man are
ell nitrogen compounds. Although it
has no color, yet when combined
chemically with two parts of oxygen,
it makes a gas that is a brilliant
cherry red. ■>
Although it is inert, and we breathe
gallons o( it every hour, yet when
chemically combined in still another
proportion with oxygen, it forms th'.'
well-known laughing gas, so commonly used as an anaesthetic by dentists.
Though it has no apparent effect upon the body, yet when combined with
carbon, hydrogen aud oxygen in tho
form of meat, the body finds it the
hardest element to get rid of, and too
often it is the cause of the most fatal
of all kidney diseases.
Air is a mechanical mixture. By
this i3 meant that the constituent,
are distinct and separate, even as
sugar is distinct from the water in
which it is dissolved. ,
Were nitrogen to form a chemical
combustion with tho. other constituents of the atmosphere, all life would
become extinct almost instantly. A*.i
atom of nitrogen, so inert and harmless, combined with another atom of
an equally harmless substance, carbon, sometimes called soot, makes
the deadly gas known as cyanogen,
the basis of prussic acid, one drop jf
which will cause almost instantan
eous death.
Although there is so much nitrogen
all around us, the world is slowly
starving to death for lack of it. Animals must have it in the combined
form, and it must be given to the soil,
if we want waeat, and corn, and other
grains. Hundreds of years ago, birds
deposited a nitrogen-bearing substance on the sea cliffs and in the
6ea caves along the coast of Chile, in
far off South America.
Man has gone there after this precious nitrate and borne it away, ship
load after shipload, to be used as a
fertilizer on the impoverished field?
of Europe and America. Now the deposits are nearly all gone and nitrogen must be sought elsewhere. In
Germany they are taking it from the
air by rheans of electricity.
If this method proves itself to bo
a success the world life will be saved;,
if it does not and no other natural
deposit is found, or no other means
of fixing the nitrogen in the air in a
soluble form so that plants .may feed
upon it, all earth life is doomed, ©van
though it be postponed for hundred.
of years. The time is surely coming
when our descendants shall :.uffer
from a nitrogen famine, although living in a sea of it.
Even to-day we are feeling it, and
the countless abandoned farms in New
England are silently eloquent of the
nitrogen that was theirs once, but is
now theirs no more. Truly, nitrogen
is a queer element and it behooves
us to become better acquainted with
it unless we wish our descendants to
face the frightful danger of starvation due to thi lack of this strange
gas so abundant, and yet so hard to
obtain in the form needed by plants.
Liberty In Three Nations.
An Englishman loves liberty as he
does his lawful wife. She is a possession. He may not treat her with much
tenderness, but he knows how to defend her. A Frenchman loves liberty
like an affianced bride. He will commit a thousand follies for her sake.
A German loves liberty like his old
grandmother. And yet the surly Englishman may some day in a fit of temper put a rope around her neck, and
tho inconstant Frenchman may become unfaithful to his adored one, but
the German will never quite abandon
hia old grandmother. He will always
keep a nook for her in the chimney
corner, where she can tell her fairy
tales to the listening children.—Hein-
rich Heine.
Dress and Novelties In Food Now Objects of Greatest Importance.
'Of late years, writes Lady Violet
Greville, In an English publication,
dress has acquired extraordinary importance. People who dressed as a
necessity of their station- now make
, dress an aim in itself. A dandy might
have poss >d a wardrobe full of
coats, or, li_ _ the late Panmure Gordon, cherished an indulgence in 100
pairs of boots, but the-a were the
exception,**, and were regarded as
eccentrics. The amount of suits required by the average man now can.
not be counted on the fhigH.s. There
are lounge suits and dress suits, fur
coats and frock coats; dinner jackets
and smoking suits, motor, golf, shooting and fishing costumes, each of
which requires waistcoats, stockings
and boots to match. With a woman
it is even worse. Boxes enough to
load a cab are required for each weekend visit, and the same dress cannot
be worn twice. Our grandmothers
bought lace and furs when they were
married to Inst them their life, but
the constant changes of fashion necessitate endless, expenditure. Every'
bride in society has her diamond
tiara and her sables, every shop girl
wears her fur boa and* carries her
muff. Each year furs grow dearer,
and each year women spend more on
these accessories to dress. The average expenditure of a well-dressed wo-
man is about three times that of her
mother, who probably could have afforded more.
Luxury in food, too, increases.
Though we may not indulge in such
long and heavy dinners as our ancestors, we eat more delicately, more
expensively of forced strawberries,
plover's eggs, early asparagus or
petitis poussins, etc., and require better cooks. Restaurants and hotels vie
with each other in introducing novelties and out-of-season luxuries, and
the standard of the gourmet grows
higher every day. The kind of meal
that once satisfied a fastidious man
about town, the plain dinner that was
so popular with the guests of Charlie
Paris, the wine merchant, or Sir
Henry Thompson, the surgeon, a bit
of codfish, a beefsteak and onions,
toasted cheese and a woodcock, would
be considered very poor fare now to
put before one's guests, who do not
want to taste wine, or enjoy the flavor
of claret, but to drink champagne all
through dinner, and smoke cigarettes
directly after.
Dirty  Patagonia..
"Patp.gonians nre not giants, as
some have supposed and as the geographies teach," said a man who has
traveled, "They are large in comparison with . the other South American
natives, that is all. Everything ' is
relative, you know. But they are
very fat. That is why they can stand
the cold so well. I have seen Pata-
gonian men and boys running around
unclad while I was wrapped in warm
garments, with the snow falling upon
them in quantities and the wind blowing bitterly. They are kept warm by
their fat and dirt. Patagonia ia one
of the dirtiest places imaginable.
Don't go there if you hate dirt. That
is my advice to all who contemplate
a journey to the jumping off place of
South America."
Would  Drown All 8oundt.
The agent of the apartment house
was trying to discourage him from
applying for a flat..
"Your nerves would be ruined,"
said the agent. "There is a phonograph .on the eecond floor that runs
day and night."
"Dot was nuttin's," responded thi
little man in the red and blue cap.
"On ihe third floor a girl practiced
on the piano all day."
'"I vud hear her nod."
"And just across the shaft a lunatic blows the cornet at all hours."
"Der soundsv ud nod reach me."
"Great Josephus!  Are you deaf?"
"Nein! I Way der drpmbone."

Mother's Task.
When mother gets breakfast she
must .remember that father likes his
breakfast food without cream, Johnny
vwants both cream and sugar, Susie
doesn't like breakfast food at all and
must have a substitute, \^ary,has to
have grapefruit and the rest of the
family want oranges and apples. No
tw6 agree on anything, but she must
remember what each one wants or the
family doubt her devotion. What is
it, do' you suppose, that keeps the mother of-a large family from going

Political Burglaries.
It was through a stolen document
openly seized by the British ambassador in Berlin that the British Government first learned of the recognition
of the independence of America by
France. The British Minister was
Hugh Elliot, and he had the desk of
the French Minister forced open to
obtain the copy of the treaty he wanted. In 1855 a sensation was created
by the discovery of a plan by which
secret documents were systematically
abstracted from the Russian embassy
in Berlin, being copied at night in the
interests of another nation and replaced in the drawer at the embassy
I in the morning. The burglaries had
been taking place for two. years before
they were discovered.

A Slans Phrase.
. '"Bull con,"' a slang phrase which
moans to flatter, to praise with ulterior motives, had its orijin In the west
I yems ago. When the gold brick game
was started the bunko men sprang a
fine, high-sounding combination^ of
words upon the simple farmers. They
called it an investment in "bullion
consolidated." Years after the words
were cut down to "bull con" and
came to mean any graft that depended upon the gift of gab. Still later
it was'used to describe the method of
flattery. ^

scholar as well as a politician. Lady
Dilke once stated that her first waits
was danced with Lord Morley.: "And
a very good waltzer he was too," she
said. In his hours,of relaxation Sir
Charles is devoted to rowing an,d the
rapier, while the late Lady Dilke, who
was well known as an at I critic as
well as social reformer, made the collecting of rare books her chief hobby.

He was quite unconscious, and
was at once taken to the. hospital

According to David Wolffsohn, a
Cologne banker and one oi the leaders of the Zionist movement, many
Jews are being repatriated from the
United States to Palestine. Herr
Wolffsohn said recently that Zionism
is growing with tremendous strides;
that, the society has a membership
exceeding 250,000, and that financially the condition of the society is more
than  encouraging.
"We Have now abandoned mere
theory, and are devoting our attention
to work," he said. "We have had
gratifying results. For instance, we
have worked hard at the schools in
Jerusalem, and the modern young
Palestine Jew has a splendid technical and general education.
"Our first care was to make the
poorer Jews self-supporting. There
were far too many content to rely
upon the generosity of devoted pilgrims. Now the state of things is altogether different. Instead of applying for money to the Chaluhah, as we
call the central relief fund, they ask
for work.
"Palestine Jews favor agricultural
labor. It is really wonderful to see
how they will toil upon their little
plot of lnnd and how fruitful they
will make the most barren spots.
"Palestine is already becoming a
favorite. colony for Jews. There an
any number of London Jews among
the colonists and even Jews from prosperous New York also abandon the
commerce of the west for Jerusalem.
"Religious Jews endeavor in their
old age to make a pilgrimage to Palestine, so that they may be buried
in the Holv Land. The modern Jews,
however, do not go to Palestine t-i
die. but to live.
"Our adherents may be divided into
t'.vo classes, the professional Jew and
the very poor man. It is to the young
man and woman at the university
that we appeal. At Oxford, Cambridge and London Universities we
have Zionist societies and their members are enthusiastic.
"We have now got $1,500,000 to-
pother and every day convinces me
that the Jew is as passionately enthusiastic about Palestine as his home
as ever."

A Student of Canada.
According to a prominent Canadian
nnblic official, recently returned from
Australia, the good people in America
who regard the recent sweeping victory of the "Federal Parliamentary
Labor Party" in the Commonwealth
as a slap in the face for imperialism,
nre very much mistaken, for this gentleman met the Hon. Mr. Fisher, and
found that he is really a very progressive imperialist. He advocates a very
progressive policy in naval and military matters, and even goes so far as
to publicly proclaim his belief in universal compulsory military and naval
service as the only effective means of
national insurance against war, and
also as a means of strengthening the
national character. Mr. Fisher was
very anxious to find out from my informant all he could about Canada's
militia system, and had had experienced colonial officers sent to all the
lending countries in the world to obtain data to be used in developing
the most satisfactory military ana naval systems for the Commonwealth.
He is a Scotchman by birth, and has
all the Scot's enthusiasm for the Empire.
My informant stated that he wa3
surprised to find Mr. Fisher so well
informed regarding Canada and Canadian public men. The Australian
statesman admitted having studied
the lives of Sir John A. Macdonald,
Sir Charles Tupper and Sir Wilfrid
Laurier, and said that he had instructed the Australian Parliamentary librarian to procure all the books
he could on the development of the
Canadian constitution, the national
defensive force, and the various departments of the Dominion and Pro-
vicial Governments.—Chesterfield* in
The Family Herald.
Why Savages Turn In Their Toes.
In the first place, the foot naturally takes that position when it has
never boon crnfined by boots or the
ank; j- distorted by high ' jels. Convenience is also on the side of the
natural position of the foot in the
case of the savage, for he has to do
much walking through long grass
and .undergrowth in forests. Consequently his progress would be much
impeded if he turned hi. toes out to
catch these obstacles instead of brushing them aside and outward, as he
now does. Lastly, the savage uses his
foot much more as a help to his hands
than we do, and it is obvious that in
doing this he must turn his toes in.

"Always Good to Theatricals."
Mme. Tetrazzini tells an amusing
story of lur younger days, when she
and her sister, also a great and famous singer, were touring and sharing
rather humble rooms. After thanking
a landlady who had been more kind
and considerate than most, the good
lady astonished" them by looking up
from her wash-tub and saying, with
benign condescension, "That's all
right, my dears. I'm always good to
theatricals, for I never know what
my own children may come to."
