Meeting of City Council
Proposed Additions to Power House Plant - Glenn Avenue
Irrigation Ditch Again
i There was a full attendance at
the meeting of the city council last
Saturday night, a thing which has
not been possible for some months
The minutes of the last meeting
were first read and confirmed, and
the following accounts referred to
the finance committee, to be paid
if found correct:
W. C. Blackwood, work on streets $151 20
do                        do. 172 80
Gillis Hunfjord, 2 ricks wood  / 5 00
• R. Draper, work on streets   4 33
E.  L.  McGuin, wood  for  power
house    105 30
W. R. Trench, stationery  I   15
Mayor Sutherland announced
that it waould be necessary to put
through a by-law to enable the
council to borrow money for
current expenses against this.year's
revenue. There would be several
. expenses to meet before the taxes
began to be paid in, and in the
meantime they would have to
borrow money to carry on the
business of the council.
For this purpose By-la'v No. 84
had been prepared, and was given
a first and second reading.
In connection with the-Light and
Water Committee, Aid. Leckie
reported that he had been conferring with the engineer at the
power house, _and had prepared
specifications and conditions- of
tender for the machinery required
to make the proposed additions to
the plant. These he submitted to
the council. The City would require A
One 75 h.p. tandem compound
engine, with vertical separator, and
oilipg system for continuous
One 50 kilowatt alternating current generator and exciter for same.
The generator to be directly
coupled with engine, and the exciter to be directly connected on
the main shaft. The generator
would be required to be run. in
parallel with the present 100-kilo-
watt generator, • which is a three-
phase 60 cycle Fairbanks-Morse
machine with a capacity of 2,300
volts at a speed of 25 revolutions
per minute. 7
A switch-board would also be
required with synchronizing at
tachment, and automatic voltage
regulator for regulating the voltage
when motors are switched off.
Aid. Cox asked if it was the intention of the water committee to
put in.water meters whether the
irrigation ditch along Glenn avenue
and in front of the school and
Presbyterian church. The ditch,
he said, ran through sand, much of
the water leaking away to the
detriment of the street, and endangering the foundations ofthe
new school. There was always a
lot of water lying around Richter
street in summer time. He thought
it would be a benefit to the city if
the water was piped and the waste
done away with.
Aid. Leckie was doubtful if the
city was in any way responsible.
If the water leaked out and did
damage, it was up to the people
who used the ditch to see that it
was made good.
Aid. Jones said that the city had
at present no control over the irrigation system. Mayor Sutheiland
had introduced a proposal at the
Municipalities convention at
Salmon Arm that municipalities
should have power to take over
their irrigation systems, but until
that power was given by legislation
the city could do very little in the
Aid. Dalgleish suggested that the
people themselves might get together and arrange to pipe the
Aid. Leckie, however, figured out
that something like $1,500 would
be required for the pipe, an expense which could not be undertaken without due consideration.
The^discussion continued for
some time after the adjournment
of the meeting, but no satisfactory
conclusion was arrived at.
New Act for Regulation of Automobiles
All Motors and Drivers Must
be    Licensed - Some    Strict
Rules to be Enforced
The promised legislation of
British Columbia for the regulation
of automobile traffic throughout
the province, with a view to affording more adequate protection against accidents through careless
or incompetent driving or through
indefinite rules of the road, especially applicable to motor ■ vehicles,
was introduced in the Legislature
bv its author, Attorney-General
The bill provides that all motor
vehicles used in British Columbia
must be registered and licensed,
that licenses shall be terminable
with the year's end, and that tourists must hereafter obtain special
licenses—which shall be valid for
thirty days, after depositing with
the superintendent or any provincial constable, a form describing the
machine in detail, giving the owner's name and address, the number
of the machine at its place of registration, the name of the chauffeur
etc. No one is to be permitted to
use a motor within the province,
for however brief a period until
the form of securing such temporary license has been complied
with.   •
. The annual license fee is fixed
at $ 10 based on a computation at
the rate of $ 1 per month for any
broken, part of a year's ownership.

cordially invited.
Water wao uocaior no use oriawn
Aid. Leckie did not think meters
would be necessary in case of
strictly dwelling house users, as it
extremely unlikely'that any householder could use more than the
4,000 gallon minimum. Where
the water was used on lawns, however, the amount consumed was so
uncertain that meters would have
to be installed.      ,
Aid. Dalgleish for the Board of
Works reported that Aid. Copeland
and he had decided it would be
xan advantage to proceed at once
with the gravelling of Richter street
oh the section lying between
Bernard avenue and the bridge
over the creek. The street was in
a very bad condition and should
be attended to at once. He thought
money might be saved by hiring
teams instead of letting the work
be done by contract.
Aid. Dalgleish also drew attention
to the old well at the Presbyterian
church corner. He declared it
was a "trap for drowning children"
and a dangerous germ catcher. It
should be filled up. It was an unsightly object, and with so many
school children around a source of
It was agreed that the well should
be filled. In fact the filling of it
had been contemplated for some
considerable time, but had lately
been delayed until the hydrants
were installed.
Aid. Dalgleish also brought up
the much discussed problem of the

The bill also contains some
special rules of the road with respect to speed in and out of the
confines of a city, passing crossings
etc. In passing an -unruly horse
the driver is required to stop his

Mr. R. H. Cole was amongst the
arrivals by Monday's boat,  from
The course of lectures on fruitgrowing which closed with last
night's meeting in Raymer's Hall
have by the large attendance amply
justified the Farmers' Institute in
their scheme of holding, the meetings in the country districts. The
total attendance at the five meetings
has been well over 400, a very
gratifying result considering the
short time given to make arrangements.
The couse was divided between
the K.L.O., South Okanagan, Benvoulin, Rutland, and Kelowna,
and some interesting lectures were
The course was opened by a
lecture on " Types of Soil in Relation to Practical Fruitgrowing,"
by C. C. Clarke. This was held in
the dining room of the Kelowna
Land and Orchard Co.'s boarding
house, into which some 70 people
were packed. The lecture dealt
in a highly instructive way with the
composition and character of
various soils, and their relative
adaptabilitv to orchard culture.
After the lecture an adjournment
was made to Mr. W. A. Scott's
orchard, where Mr. M. S. Middleton
gave a practical demonstration of
summer and winter pruning, the
large attendance gleaning many
useful and timely hints on this
difficult art.
In the evening, Mr. R.M. Winslow
Mr. Ben Hoy and Mr. Carpentejl
were driven out to South Okanagan^
where a large number of the.
ranchers of the district had assembled in the schoolhouse.
Mr. Winslow first spoke on the
work ^of the B. C. . Fruitgrowers'
Association, and the arrangements
the Department of Agriculture are
making for the holding of packing
schools in all parts of the province.
' Mr. Ben Hoy lectured on "Orchard Pests," and the best methods
of combatting these by intelligent
spraying at the right time. He described the most common pests
and diseases in detail, and although,
he declared, the Okanagan was
wonderfully free from both forms
of injury, yet careful methods are
necessary to keep it so.
Mr. Carpenter followed with a
talk on the different sprays necessary for each class of pest, and
their preparation in the cheapest
and most satisfactory way. A description was also given of the
different forms of spray pumps,
nozzles, etc.
..Benvoulin Presbyterian church,
kindly lent for the occasion, was
the place of meeting Wednesday
morning, and some fifty people
were present. The lecture was by
Mr. C. C. Clarke, on the " Management of Orchard Soil in Relation
to Conservation of Moisture and
Fertility." This introduced some
valuable instruction in the irrigation
of orchards, and the use of cover
crops in supplying humus to the
In the afternoon a visit was made
to the Rutland district, where a
large number had assembled in the
Public Hall to hear lectures by Mr.
J. F. Carpenter on the " Physiology
of Plants in  Relation   to   Fruitgrowing," and by Mr. Ben Hoy on
" Winter Injury and its Prevention."
The  final  meeting in Raymer's
Hall   was   probably   the   largest
meeting  ever  held   in connection
with the  Farmers' Institute.   Mr.
M.  S.  Middleton  had   planned a
lantern lecture on the " Selection of
Nursery Stock" and  the planting
of orchards,  but owing to an accident to the apparatus at Armstrong the illustrations had perforce
to be omitted.   The lecturer dealt
with the different grades of nursery
stock, recommending the  use  of
one-year-old grafts, especially those
grown under the conditions found
in the district where the planting
\s to be done.  Fall planting he did
r^ot  recommend, as it was difficult
to  get well  ripened stock and to
get them  well  established  before
winter.   Some different systems of
I planting were described, and illus
trated by sketches.
Mr. Winslow then spoke of the
"Successful growing and marketing of fruits." Mr. Winslow from
his intimate acquaintance with all
phases of the fruit industry, and
his position as provincial horticul-
turalistand secretary of the B.C.
Fruit Growers' Association, has a
considerable fund of information
at his disposal as to the conditions
and needs of the fruit grower, and
the problems connected with the
disposal of the ever increasing
British Columbia fruit crop.
Kelowna fruit shipments he said
had ranked high during the past
year in comparison to the rest of
the province, and came close to
Hood River and Yakima Valley.
Prices had been good, and higher
than the American side. The 1910
crop had exceeded by 50 per cent
that of any previous year.
In respect to the reciprocity negotiations which they were opposing in the interests of the fruit industry, he thought it likely that B.C.
would be supported in keeping up
the duty.
Touching upon the growers'
problems, he said that loss occurred
through attempts to grow unsuitable varieties. White labor, also
he strongly advocated, there being
a large and increasing demand for
such, which will have to be met.

An enthusiastic audience greeted
the performers at the concert given
by the Literary Society on Tuesday

driving in the swift moving cutters
and  bob-sleighs.     Although    the
concert was rather late in starting
the interest was maintained to the
finish.   The items were of an unusually high rprder,  and  the performers rendered  their selections
to the best of their ability.   Mr.
Tom Hill's song "The Miller "was
a real treat to the musicians in the
audience, who enjoyed-his  artistic
rendering.    "The Qyaker's  Courtship" by Nellie and Willie Hereron
was  most  amusing and   cleverly
given.   The Patrotic song by Mr.
Mawhinney   was   deservedly   encored, in giving which he had the
unexpected  support  of   his   little
daughter.   Harry Schwab's humorous songs as usual  brought  down
the  house, whilst Mr. Tom Smith
in his encore once more pathetically asked for "A Permanent Papa"
Mrs. Mawhinney accompanied the
singers in an efficient manner. The
proceeds were in aid of the piano
fund.   The following is  the  programme in detail:

The fancy dress carnival held
last Thursday evening on Fuller's
,open air rink drew a fairly large
showing of costumes although the
attendance was not so large as
might have been expected. This
was partly due to the fact that a
choral practise was on the same
evening, and "Uncle Tom's Cabin"
at the Opera House. The ice was
in good condition and the weather
ideal for the purpose.
A long list of prizes had been
presented by the various storekeepers and these were exhibited
for two or three days previously
in in Lequimes window.
The first prize for the best lady's
costume was a sweater coat  given
by Lequime Bros.,  and  was won

gentlemen's  costumes,   a  pair  of

Bert Davis, as a "Boy Scout."
The prize for the best comic
costume Was a seal given by P. B.

The judges had a harder task
when it came to picking out the
best skaters. Eventually the prizes
were given as follows:

Over 285 people attended, and a
large proportion of these were in
costume. The dresses were ,»n-
usually good, and it was no easy
for the judges, Messrs. T. Morrison,
R. C. Reed and Geo. Meikle, to
pick out those to whom they could
award the prizes. The skaters
began to arrive soon after 7 o'clock
and the fun Was kept up to a late
hour. The ice was a little soft

in fair condition. j

Dear Sir:
If there is one virtue that commends itself to the human animal,
it is the virtue of consistency. I
have heard much talk, since arriving in Kelowna/on a variety of
subjects, mostly worthless, but one
clarion note has rung through' the
babble of tongues, "Support home
industries." The local medico ex-\
pe'cl3 to be consulted in cases of
sickness, the lawyer expects to be
retained for legal advise, the real
estate agent iesent3 purchases
made outside the district, ihe banker expects to receive your account,
the store keeper rages when hn
sees his customers purchasing from
outside points, but these same gentlemen lack the virtue, which I have
said, is so admirable, namely consistency. They hire a hall and
give a dance known as the Batch-
elors' Ball, and hire an Orchestra
from Vernon. Now Kelowna possesses an Orchestra, which in spite
of the opinion of these gentlemen,
I maintain can give a good account
of themselves, if given proper encouragement. Have any of these
gentlemen clone anything to encourage this Orchestra ? Have
they offered them a room in which
they can rehearse ? Have they
come to them and said "You do
not seem to have any very good
music, we would like to assure you
of our hearty support." It is this
v:c». of inco._siotcr.cy that renders local effort futile, because a
local organization like the Kelowna
Dance Orchestra is not sufficiently
., assured of local patronage, to in-
1: vest time and money in rehearsal or
music. With regard to the claim
that they do not play good music,
I failed to notice anything very new
or striking in the music furnished
by the Vernon orchestra, That
this organization play well is not
in dispute. They are sure of engagements and consequently get
interestt-d in their work, and spend
time on rehearsal. There is far
too much carping criticism in this
city by incontempt judges, who are
quite unacquainted with the^ subject they are discussing. It is the
men who will dance a waltz  to   a
two step in blissful ignorance who
are the first to criticize. Let Kelowna support its own institutions,
and try and foster them. Eliminate the highly patronising-air which
is assumed by some societies here,
who act under the presumption
that they are conferring a favor on
anyone by asking them to sing,
play or act for them .and who
would never dream of thanking
you. Let us have more esprit de
corps, and not so many cliques,
and we shall make a greater suc-
cuccess of our own instutions, and
not put Kelowna in the Village
class, by having to send to Vernon
for our music.
I am told that the Vernon Orchestra did a certain amount of
" swanking " at the ball, evidently
regarding the Kelownaites as a
bunch of hayseeds, and can you
blame them ?

A Man Who Was Taken
For a Burglar
Copyright. I31u. uy American Press
Association. 7
Jack Mertou arrived lo Chicago at
6 o'clock on a ruiny afternoon. Hia
train for the west left at 9, and he
was prompted to spend the Intervening bours with his cousin. Taking a
cab, he was driven to tbe bouse.
"No. 232. There she Is. th.> next one
to this. 1 might have recognized tbe
bronze flowerpots on tbe balcony anyway. Now for a surprise." He rau
lightly up tbe steps of No. 232, pulled
out a latchkey be nad long carried and
inserted it in the lock. f
The key Htted easily, nnd the door
swung open, revealing a long expanse
of cool dark hull in summer attire of
linen coverings. There was not a soul
in sight. Tbe doors that he remein
bered led to drawing rooms, library
and sitting room were tightly closed.
At this hour Uncle Kred and Peter
would probably have returned from
the office and. as was their daily custom, would be grilling over the evening papers in the library In the glare
of strong electric lights Instead of
spinning along the lake front watching the sunset after the strenuous day
downtown. The Mertons were money
grubbers, anyway, witb but little eye
for beauty. Nevertheless money grabbing had not affected the warmth of
their big hearts, and this was unusual
Jack strode down the hall, softly
turned the knob of tbe library' door
und entere.d-to find himself in the
mellow, subdued light of a solitary
lamp on-the writing desk. Out of the
surrounding shadows-a darker shape
flitted and then came forward, revealing the straight, slim figure of a girl In
a soft black gown, with a string of
pearls around her white throat and
dusky masses of hair framing the
loveliest fnce .lack had ever seen-n
face lighted by glorious hazel eyes and
tinted with exquisite color.
The hazel eyes met Jack's fearlessly.
and he was conscious of a quick movement of her right hand; then he found
himself lwking into the menacing barrel of a small revolver.
"What do you want here?" asked the
girl quietly.
Forget ful of his clandestine entrance.
Mr. Merton drew himself up proudly.
"Rather an original method of welcoming a guest." he said lightly.   -
"Rather an original method of paying a call." retorted the girl. "You see,
i heard you enter Jthe house."
"How did you know it was not Mr.
Merton-or his son?" asked Jack, with
"Merton?" The girl lifted her fine
black brows questioningly. "You have
made a mistake; there are do Mertons
Jack stared.    "Then  I am in the
wrong bouse.   Isn't this No. 232?" be
asked bluntly.
"My uncle has lived here for twenty-five years. Surely there can be no
mistake. You see, I Just came in from
tbe east, and while waiting for western connections I ran up here to surprise tbem. Here is tbe latchkey I
have carried for ten years past. It fitted the door, and so I came ln, expecting to-find my relatives here." He
stopped abruptly at the slightly scornful expression on the girl's face. "Perhaps you don't believe me?" he asked
For answer (he girl pushed a newspaper across tbe table and pointed at
the large half tone portrait of a man
occupying the center of the front
page. It wan evident tbat she bad
been reading the paper when be entered and bad slipped into tbe shadow
of a tall Hereon at the sound of bis
approaching steps down the ball.
Jack picked up tbe paper and carried It nearer tbe light, tbe girl still
covering bim with the little revolver.
The young mau uttered p slight exclamation nud studied the picture and
the mirrouiidliig text witb amazed
eyes and parted lips.
There before him was what might
bMve been a portrait of himself, fair,
keen face, handsome nose and fine
eyes, with the careless toss of hair
nbovc. The black type underneath
proclaimed this the picture of "Fussy
Harry." the slickest gentleman bur-
ix\..r out of Jail, nnd.lt was the purpose of the article to Vvflrn tbe public against his early arrival In Chicago
-nnd to endeavor to place the gen-
Mctunii burglar behind the bars as
•speedily ns might  be accomplished.
"You've boon  reading this?" asked
link, nil ber breathlessly.
The jrlrl nodded.
•'I don't wonder you thought' I
:i:;!ii he-lot me see—Fussy Harry!
!'li confess Hint we look enough alike
n> l'i« li'iithers-twlns. In fact—but I'm
nut vain, you know, only have I got
that ratty look In my eyes?"
"I'd nn her not say," returned the
i Irl shortly. "You must understand
!!i:.t I'm not going to let you get
•<\v;t.v The pnppr says you have com-
mined murder—you are wanted fer
numerous burglaries and"—
"I suppose you Intend to call up the
poMcp station nnd turn me over to
ilie autlioittloK. Well, do sol I con
rrnv my Identity, but not before 1
have been held up to suspicion, my
f.nv.u- br.iuuvd from one end of the
reer ruined. Well, let er go." said Mr.
land to- the other and iuv future ca-
Merton recklessly.
He leaned against the wall, witb
folded arms, and surveyed the carpet
"If you wouldn't mind sitting down
so I can rest my elbow on the desk.
It tires.my arm holding, this thing out
so. Thank yon," she said as Jack obediently sau!_ iul.i n chair
"If you're g'>isi;_ to call the police I
hope you won't n ind doing so at once,
because if I can ••a; myself in time I
want to caii i' • i;.:;u western express."
ySKhave call <..    uem," liesitaied the
"As soon ns you came In I found
the buzzer ou the t.urglar alarm that
connects with the police station and
signaled. They should be here very
Boon." She was unite white now, and
the hand that held the revolver trembled visibly.
"Is tbere a telephone in this room?"
asked Jack present ly.
"Yea," replied the girl.
"You wouldn't let me call up central and discover where my cousins,
the Mertons, are? If I'm in the \vrong
house, why"-
"Is tbere any doubt about that?" Her
face was slightly contemptuous.
"A good deal of doubt," asserted
Jack boldly. "This room is as familiar to me as my own home. I've spent
weeks here. I know every chair and
table, for the Mortons are not given
to changing their furniture. If yon
would take the trouble to look you
might find a picture of me somewhere
about the premises."
"I think not, except here." She laid
her hand on the paper, with a provoking smile. /
"Do you mean to tell me tbat this ii
not Mr. Fred Merton's house?" demanded Jack.
"Really, if It's any advantage for
you to know, I wish I could tell you
the name of the owner; only, you see,
my frlem.s have rented It furnished
^for the summer season, and I only arrived this morning, and 1 did not hear
the name of the owner If it has been
mentioned And so it is possible that
this Is Mr. Merton's house. I daresay
you are quite familiar with & good
many houses"—
"Let up on that!" growled Jack, quite
out of temper. "No use hitting a fellow when he's down, you know."
"I beg your pardon." said the girl,
her face coloring adorably, "but yoa
must think me very mean. I've really
been' talking nt random. I thought I
heard n sound"- Her head was bent
In a listening attitude.
"Burglars!" suggested Jack, with a
grim smile. "Or. what might be worse
for"me. police—ugh!"
A strained look came Into tbe girl's
face as footsteps advanced swiftly
down the hall toward tbe door. She
arose and leaned toward her captive.
"I'm sorry. I hope you'll come out
all right. I wish it had not been I
who had to"—
"Thanks." said Jack dryly. "I'll
probably come out after I've served
time! As in the case of the girl iu the
musical comedy song, you know. 'I
must be captured by somebody, nnd it
may as well be you.' Well, here goes!"
There was the sound of voices outside the door-feminine voices and
then the door opened and skirts rustled
silkily forward'.
"Jetjn, you poor child, were yon
frightened to death staying all alone
here. Mercy, wbafs this? Oh. put
down that pistol!"
Three young women, pretty as plo
tures, handsomely gowned. Buttered
toward the loveliest girl of all'as she
dropped the revolver to the desk. She
arose and pointed a slim forefinger
toward Jack Merton.
"That is Fussy Harry, wauled by
the police. I have captured him"—
She fainted away then, and It was
Jack's privilege to gather ber up and
lay ber on the leather couch before
confronting the bevy of hysterical girls,
who bad fled to a distant corner.
"I'm Jack Merton," began that gentleman with what dignity he could as-.
sume, "and I've been trying to per-
suade this young lady that"-
"Of course It's Jack," cried the tallest girl, tossing back her veil, "lfs
Peter's cousin. Tell me what has happened."
Jack found his hands grasped by
the welcoming hands of his cousin,
Peter's bride, and he found no difficulty In convincing his listeners of his
Identity. The girl on tho couch was
recovering nnd sat up, llsteulng to the
conversation with flaming cheeks and
sparkling eyes.
"We went to the matloee and left
Jean alone. All the servants were out
She's been reading that lurid newspaper and-well, renlly, Mr. Mertpn. It
does look like you," explained Mrs.
Fancher when Mrs. Peter bad made
the proper introductions. "1 don't
wonder Jean was frightened. But
what pluck she had! Just fancy holding that revolver, and It Is loaded,
girls. No; there Is no burglar alarn^
What a fib, Jean! 'Of course she
didn't know the name of Merton. We
Just met Mrs. Peter downtown and
dragged her up. They're staying at
the shore nnd"- So the explanations
went on, and after a little while Jack
found himself sitting down beside
Jean Innes trying to make Ids peace
with that disconcerted little lady.
"And sq your home is in San Francisco?" he nsked delightedly. "Why,
.that's where I'm going to live. I

having a friend there, you know." .
"I'm so sorry," faltered Jean, with a
soft shyness In her tender eyes.
"I'm not," asserted Jack, "and I'm
sure you would have captured me
sooner or later. You'll find me the
most willing victim." And the look In
her eyes satisfied Jack that he had
entered the right house after all.

Robin Hood Flour absorbs more moisture

William Whyte, vice-president
of the C. P. R. in the west, concluded his negotiati'>._£ with Sir
1 homas Shaughnessy last week, as
to the expropriations for general
improvements in the west for the
coming year. Mr. Whyte said that
there would be 380 miles  of  new
The railway commis'fion has
given judgment reducing the rates
on the White Pass & Yukon railway by one-third on freight and
passenger traffic on the Canadian
section of the line, from White
Horse to SLagv/ay. Complaint in
regard to the rates was brought be-
track and 1 00 miles of double track  fore the board by the Dawson City
laid within the next twelve months, i board of trade.
The new, heavy engines which are
being  installed  by  the   company
are  responsible  for  much  of the
Bide tracks.
Clothes made literally from wood
are the latest sartorial venture. A
beginning is being made with the
making of waistcoais. The discovery of this new process is
largely due to the fact that bleached cotton is known to be composed
of nearly pure cellulose. Working
on this basis scientists have discovered a method bf manufacturing
a thread of cellulose extracted from
spruce wood.
The lowest temperature yet
registered is nowhere near the
north pole. In fact, it is almost
exactly on the equator, but far up
in the aii. On Aug. 30, 1908, this
temperature, 110.7 below zero
Fahrenheit, was shown by a thermometer sent up in- a " sounding
balloon" to a height of twelve
miles at Shiratti, on Victoria Ny-
anza. It is not to be supposed that
if the balloon had gone up .a little
higher a still lower temperature
would have been discovered. There
is now known to be a sharply defined limit.—Literary Digest.
Teachers Appreciate the
Canadian Government
Annuities Scheme
The teachers in the public  schools must, as a rule, themselves provide against the day when their age
or infirmities will demand their retirement from their profession, and
many,  it is understood are  alive
to this fact and are taking advantage of the provisions of the  Government Annuities scheme to  secure a competency for later years.
The number doing so  is perhaps
small in  proportion  to  the  large
number engaged in ■ teaching, but
it must be borne in mind that  the
Annuities idea is new, and that the
attention of the school teachers has
only been recently especially directed to it.    Many might  follow  the
example of a woman in one of our
cities..  She was 43  years  of age,
had ho heirs, and her salary  over
and above her weekly expenditures
was laid away to keep her in the
days when the shadows began  to
lengthen.   She had saved $ 1,000.
It was drawing  3 per cent, coin-
pound interest, or increasing at a
little better than $30 a year.   She
heard of the government annuities
scheme, and she immediately transferred her $1,000 to the government on account of the purchase
of an annuity payable nt age  60.
Having nc-ncirS" one pufenasea on
Plan "B", and the  Annuity  which
a payment of $1,000 secured for
her at sixty   was   $222.60.     But
shortly after her $1,000 had been
paid to the Government she  became an invalid  and  was totally
incapacitated from performing her
duty.   Her case came under the
provision of the Act which provides that if invalidity or disablement   occurs   to a person, if he
has paid in sufficient to secure an
Annuity of not less than $50, may
draw the Annuity though then under 55 years of age.   The payment
which she had made gives her an
annuity of $69.67 for lifetime.    If
the period before she became disabled had been five years   she
would have  had' an Annuity of
$88.50, and at 55 she could  have
had her contract converted into an
immediate,Annuity of $147,50.   It
will, therefore, be seen that if she
could avail .herself of the provisions
pf the Act at any time  after her
$ 1,000 had been paid, she would
have had an income' over twice as
large as she would have  received
had she left the money in the Savings bank.   This illustrates the advantage of persons .who have been
laying; up for their- old age  transferring their sayings or a portion
of them, to the  Government on
account of the. purchase of   an

The marriage of Count de
Lesseps, aviator, and Miss MacKenzie, daughter of Sir William
MacKenzie, of Toronto, was to
take place yesterday.
The retiring council of the
Montreal board of trade last week
instructed its transportation officers
to appear before the railway commission, and oppose the application
of the Vancouver board of trade
for a reduction in the rates charged
by the Canadian Pacific railway,
from British Columbia coast points
to points east of the Rockies in
British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, so as to
place them on an equality with the
rates charged to the same points
from Montreal, Toronto and eastern points, from which the actual
rail haul, is longer. The board
bases its opposition on the ground
that it is unfair to expect a railway
to haul freight across the Rocktes
for the same money as it receives
lor the haul across the level
Henceforth intoxicated persons
may not ride on the Canadian
Northern, according to a bulletin
which will soon be distributed
among the conductors. Orders
will be given the conductors that
they will carry such peisons at their
own risk and subject to dismissal
from service.
A huge, but unintentional joke
on the provincial authorities and
the people of Ontario has just
come to light. In 1896 Hugh
Nichol, of Stratford, presented to
the provincial museum at the
normal school, a block of stone
with a circular hole cut through it.
Tens of ' thousands of sightseers
have read the placard, which states
that the stone is the " Old Plighting
stane" of Lairg Sutherland, Scotland, and that the custom of plighting troth with clasped hands
through the stone was probably of
Druidical origin. It now appears
that the stone is an ordinary one
used for grinding meal, and that
the'legend associated with it was
invented by a humorous Scot from
whom Mr. Nichol purchased the
stone in good faith in order to
present it to" the province.
A consignment of frozen eggs
from . Hankow, China, valued at
$100,000 has .been ordered out of

unfit for use as food.
Ontario's Wail
Ontario fruit growers of late have
begun  to  wonder how  it is that
ninety out of every hundred well-
to-do British  settlers   who   enter
Canada to  take ' up fruit growing
pass by the great fruit districts of
the east, as though they had never
heard of them, and proceed direct
to  British Columbia.   There they
buy land at considerably higher
values than land equally as good
can be  purchased  for in Ontario.
Eastern  growers  have   even   felt
rather aggrieved over the situation.
But now a worse thing is happening.
During the past few months the
Central Okanagan Lands, Limited,
of- Kelowna,  B. C,   has   actually
conducted   agencies   in  Montreal
and Ottawa.   They'have displayed
excellent samples of their fruit and
illustrations of their orchard land
and are creditably stated to have
sold some three hundred thousand
dollars   worth' of   fruit   lands   to
Canadians in the east.   They even
ran  an  excursion  of  eastern   investors to the Pacific province. We
presume that the next we shall hear
that they have opened branches in
the Niagara district and  induced
our leading Niagara district growers
to sacrifice their   fruit   lands   in
order that they might make better
investments in the west.
The fact is that our eastern
growers are very, very, much asleep.
If they do riot awaken very soon
they will have their boots stolen
off their feet. The Ontario government also is dozing. The possibilities for a development of the
of the fruit industry in Ontario are
enormous. And yet! practically
pothing is being done. Why then
should! we wonder over British in-
yristtirs passing us by ?—Canadian

Story   of  a   Game   of   Seven-up   That
Named a Town.
Dillon Wallace on his horseback
tour through the Rockies tells his experiences In the Outing Magazine. Mr.
Wa/lace started in Arizona and one
night, stopping at the town of Show
Low, heard from the founder the origin of the name. Here Is the story as
it was told'to Mr. Wallace:
Some twenty years ago Show Low
formed part of the extensive cattle
ranch and range of Cooley & Huning,
and twenty years ago it received its.
name through a game of seven-up between the partners for ownership. I
heard the story from Mr. Cooley himself, still a large rancher and one of
tbe best known cattlemen in Arizona.
This Is the story as he told It to me:
"Huning and 1 were playing a game
of seven-up to gee who should make
broad for supper and wash the dishes.
Wo stood 5 to 6 Id Huntog's favor.
Seven, you know, Is tbe game. Diamonds were trumps. On the last band
I drew the ace and the trey. I banked on the deuce being still In the deck.
The ace counted one, and If Hunlug
didn't hold the deace the trey was
low and the game was mine.
•• 'Make tho game worth while,' says
1.   'Lot It be $10,000 or the ranch.'
" 'It's a go,' said Huning.
••I covered the canter spot on my
"•Now.* said I. 'show tow and it's
"And. hang him, be showed the
douce and won."
Huning later disposed of the ranch
iu small parcels to settlers, and tho
little village came Into being and took
its uamo. ns did the creek, of Show
Low from that gams of cards.
A Copy of "Titus Andronicus" That Is
Almost Priceless.
Three hundred and fifteen years ago
it is probable that some stranger from
Sweden, (raveling in England, bought
nt the door of a London theater-the
Hose or the Curtain, perhaps—a small,
ilifn quarto volume. He paid six
pence for it as a memento of his
visit to a London playhouse. It was
not worth more than that, at least t<>
any ono critical of printing or literary
art or of morals.
Yet this same little book Vas not
long ago discovered in the house of a
iniiuirywoman in Sweden, and today
It is almost priceless. Dealers in such
treasures have vied with one another
to obtain possession of the work.
This sixpenny quarto, hidden in Sweden for 300 years, Is the only copy
known to exist of the first edition of
the play of -Titus Andronicus." printed in lu!M. Students were long ..a ware
that the play was then printed, but it
was believed that the entire edition
had been lost. Then the chance dis
oovery added one more to the small
number of unique books in the world
ami again illustrated the importance
attaching to any smallest bit of Shake
"Titus Andronicus" was possibly no!
by Shakespeare, but it was doubtlesn
revised by him, it was acted by his
company, and a few lines ln it were
written by him. Because of this slen
der connection with one of the greatest jreuiuses the world has known till.-
single play has a value that makes it
a coveted prize for book lovers the
world over.-New York Tribune.
Hawaiian Mahogany For Ties.
K. O. Faulkner, bead of tbe forestry
department of the Santa Pe, recently
returned from Honolulu, where he
wont to sign a contract for the entire
output of ohia ties of tbe Hawaiian
Islands. Ohia is the heaviest wood
known and Is also one of the hardest. It Is n species of mahogany, very
knotty and unsplitable. Experiments
have demonstrated that it is affected
but little by the continuous pounding
of heavy rolling stock and for that ren
non it is being used ln curves, where
Ktrenglh and durability are of tbe
greatest Importance and cost is a matter of secondary consideration.—Los
Angeles Express.
