i A letter was read from Angus
McMillan stating that it was the'in-
tention'to hold a baseball match
qn Good Friday, and asking permission for the club to cha_*ge an
admission fee to the park.
The mayor said he did not know
whether the council had any power
to prevant people from going into'
. the park if they wished to.

A petition was "received from
the residents of Ellis street for a
plank sidewalk on the west side of
Ellis street from Cawston avenue to
the Lacrosse grounds, and an
electric lamp to be placed at the
co?ner of Ellis street and Cawston
There were a number of petitions
for sidewalks in, the mayor announced, but they would not deal
with them until the next meeting.
Aid. Leckie said he had received
one or two applications for water
connections from people whose
houses were beyond the pipe line.
Nothing could be done with these
until more pipe was laid down, and
they could not order more pipe
until there was a sufficient number
- of applications in to warrant the
shipping in of a carload of pipe.
Mr. R. B. Kerr then addressed
the council on the subject of the
opening out of St._ Paul street
through7 to Bernard avenue. He
was aware, he said, that Mr. Billings
of Vernon, had given it as his
opinion that the council could not
levy the cost of opening the street,
except on the property immediately
fronting on the part where the improvement was made. Dr. Moore,
however, for whom he was acting,
had consulted a firm of lawyers at
the" coast who had advised him
that the council -could go on. Mr.
Kerr quoted a clause from the
-Municipal Act, which seemed to
him to give the council power to
assess the cost right along the
street. Dr. Moore was anxious
that a specialist in such matters be
--consulted by the council at Vancouver or Victoria. Mr. Kerr, although he was of opinion that the
cost of the construction of the
street could be levied against al!
the owners benefitted, doubted if
the expense of expropriation could
be levied in the same way.
Mayor Sutherland said the whole
thing evidently turned upon a legal
point, and the sooner it was cleared
up the better.
It was decided to seek the advice
of L. G. McPhillips, K.C., of Van-
r.ouver. /
A deputation, consisting nf
'Messrs. D. W. Crowley, J. N.
Thompson, C. Martin and D. McMillan, were present to interview
the council on the question of the
control of the irrigation wattr
within the city.
Mr. Crowley, who acted as
spokesman, drew attention to the
unsatisfactory state of the water
supply in the city and in his district by the creek in particular.
The residents there, he said, had
suffered a good deal of loss from
not being able to get the water.
They would like the council to take
the matter up and run the system
and levy a tax against all water
users to pay expenses of upkeep
and repair of ditches. He thought
if the matter was properly gone
after the city would be able to
secure an Order-in-Cquncil which
would give them control of the
system. If they did so, he had no
doubt they would make big money
out of it, as it would undoubtedly
become a revenue producing
proposition. There was no lot
holder who would not be willing
to pay if he could get the water
just when he wanted it. It would
be a big thing for the city if every
holder of a 50-fl. lot were paying
say $10 a year. The matter had
been raised some time ago, but
had been dropped again. The
deputation would like to know if
the present council would do something for them this year.
Aid. Dalgleish said it was necessary first that the water users should
assign their right to the council.
Mr. Crowley replied that he did
not think there would be any need
to ask them, if they were to get an
Order-in-Council empowering the
city to take over the irrigation
.»y8tero«„_^__^-.^__.,••.-■..■.- ■ "•£*£■■■   •_..-.
Mayor Surherland said he_ had
put in quite a bit of time going into
thia matter. He had studied the
question from all 'points" arid had
also been in communication with
the. government. So far as he
could see the law seemed to provide all the necessery machinery
for the city taking over the system,
if the owners of the records were
willing to assign their rights. The
government was always averse to
issuing any order which took away
prior rights from land holders. He
thought it would be easy to get
the different holders of property in
this town tb assign their rigKTs to
the city. If this were done ho
special legislation would be required, as the existing act already
provided all necessary machinery
for enabling the city to assume
control. They could go to work
at once and prepare a by-law to
regulate the undertaking. He
thought it would be well to hold a
public meeting and get the feeling
o* tne jjcvyic.
Aid. Leckie asked how it was
proposed to deal with the minority
who would not assign.
Mr. Crowley said it would be
quite impossible to get everybody
to assign their riights, and one refusal would put a stop to the
whole thing.
They would h'ave to get the
assignment of every water record
in the town, said the mayor. If the
government were approached for
special  legislation  to  enable   the
paying taxes, and getting very little
benefit from them. He thought
the people interested should get
together and discuss matters. .
Mr. Crowley did not think it
was necessary to call a meeting.
The council could appoint a committee with outside members, aa
was done in the case of the Parks
Aid. Jones pointed out that, the
cases were not similar as the city
had no control over the irrigation
Aid. Dalgleish suggested that the
deputation present form themselves into a committee to go
around and get the people to assign
their records to the city.
They should certainly try to get
control of the recores, said the
mayo*", as that would solve the
whole difficulty. Under certain
clauses which had recently been
added .to the Act, the city would
then be enabled to take over the
whole thing. No special legislation
was required. AlLthat was wanted
was the consent. o£ the people.
Mr. Crowley felt sure they could
never get all the people lo enter
into such an agreement.
Aid. Dalgleish: No one has ever
Mr. Crowley asked if there was
any 'likelyhood of the present
council taking any steps to settle
the question.
The council were anxious to
take the matter up, said the mayor
but the people must be the first to
move, and it was essential that
their consent' should be obtained.
He suggested that a meeting be
called and a committee organized,
who would apply at ojjee for the
grant from the council. A bailiff
could then be appointed, and a
canvasser to go around and get
the assignments of the records
'from the people. . If this were done
and the consent of > everyone obtained, they had- all the necessary
machinery in the existing Act to
take over the scheme.
It was decided lo hold a public
meeting and after some discussion
as to the date , the arrangement
was left in the hands of Aid. Copeland and the city, clerk, who would
engage a hall and look" "after the
advertising.    .
Aid. Copeland announced that
the. Parks Committee had met together during the week and drafted
out an estimate of the expenditure,
which they considered absolutely
necessary to be made on the public
park this year. The estimate was
read by the city clerk as follows:
1. Levelling pUygroung and laying on water with sprinkler $500 00
2. Underbruahing and clearing up 150 00
3. Tree planting     75 00
4.' Maintenance for season  100 00
5. New flag pole      25 00
6. Additional seats     25 00
-   ■ - $875 00
The biggest expense. Aid. Copeland remarked, was the levelling of
the playground. This, however,
was a very • necessary part of the
scheme. It was quite possible they
might be able to save something
out of the $500 allowed for that
purpose, but on the olher hand, the
cutting of the underbrush and
cleaning up might cost a little more
than they had figured. He would
like to see the council make the
appropriation of ihe $825  needed.
council to forcibly take them over, j It might look a big expenditure for
they would certainly .take the
attitude of protecting invested
rights. The same thing had been
tried quite recently by one of the
land companies in the valley, and
the government had positively refused to do anything unless the
water rights were purchased.
Personally he was very much
interested in the matter, and would
like to see the city take it up. They
might even make a donation of
say $750 to" the people to assist in
the running of the irrigation system. He suggested that the people
appoint a committee who would
take the working details out of the
council's hands. The council did
not wish to have the task of looking after the appointment of n
bailiff and other details, but would
rather make a generous appropriation to place at the disposal of
such a committee. There was one
point worth noting. It would enable the city to give some advantage to those people in outlying
districts of the   city   who ' were
on6 year, but the biggest item
would not be necessary again.
They were obliged to have the
ground levelled before it could be
seeded down.
Mayor Sutherland agreed that it
would have been useless for the
city to have expended $30,000 on
the purchase of the park, if they
were not prepared to follow it up
with some attempt at developing
Aid. Cox said there was nothing
in the estimate which was not
absolutely necessary, and the work
should certainly be done.
The following motion was
passed: " That the park committee be authorized to expend the
sum of $875 as per estimate presented for the purpose of improving the city park."
Aid. Copeland said he had been
successful in securing a fine new
flag pole, which was ready for
erection as soon a4 the council decided where to put it. The same
location as the old one wduld not
up, as it was not city property.
Aid. Cox drew attention to a
complaint made by Mr. H. H. Millie
with respect to the system of
telephone calls in case of fire. Mr.
Millie had pointed out that when
an alarm of fire was sent in on the
'phone it was almost impossible to
lell where it came from. The new
fire signals were useless unless they
could inform the engineer, in passing the alarm on to the power
house, in what section of the cify
the lire was located. Mr. Millie
had suggested the placing of a
small card over each 'phone, bear-,
ing a number corresponding to the
section of the city in which it was
situated. This number was to be
mentioned to the central office
when giving in an alarm.
The matter was left in the hands
of the committee.
The Building By-law. No. 87, was
then taken up, some of the clauses
being discussed in detail, and a
few slight alterations made. The
by-law was then read a third time.
After arranging for a special
sitting on Tuesday moring following, in order to give the Building
by-law its final reading, the meeting
A special meeting of the council
was held on Tuesday morning, the
mayor, Aid. Leckie, Jones, Copeland and Dalgleish being present.
After the minutes had been read,
the Building- by-law, No. 87, was
taken clause by clause. A long
discussion took place on the
various matters dealt with in the
by-law, and several additions and
alterations were made.
A resolution was eventually
adopted that the by-law be reconsidered and finally passed.
1'ollowing a discussion on the
advisability of doing something to
present the accumulation of -'• inflammable rubbish around buildings
the committee were instructed to
enquire as to a suitable site and
the cost of erecting a small v incinerator.
The meeting then adjourned.

Laymen's Missionary
A Laymen's Missionary Banquet
of an" interdenominational nature
took place last Monday night in
Misses Laidlaw's restaurant. About
60 business men, as many as there
was accomodation for, represent
ing the different churches, sat down
to supper at 7:30 and listened
thereafter to speeches along the
lines of the Laymen's missionary
movement in Canada. Hon. D.
Wilbur, American Consul, Vancouver, was the first speakeY eulogised
the work of Christian missions in
the Orient as seen by himself when
he first 'vent to Singapore. As a
man of the world, in connection
with his official duties he criticized
the missionary critic. Mr. Caskey
ge'neral secretary of the movement
in Toronto, gave an outline of
what he described as the "biggest
work in which humanity could
be engaged,"—the evangelization
of the world, which he described
as "a man's job." The appeal was
from a Christian business man to
business men, and he contended
that the men of tbe churches should
be just as much interested in the
conversion of the world to God as
clergymen, women, and children.
"There were heathen abroad
heathen at home," said one of the
speakers. The only difference was
that the former were so by necessity and the latter by choice. Yet,
as it was Christianity which had
made Canada great, the same was
needed in all countries.and nothing
else would fulfil the " great commission." . Reflex influence for
good would also come to the home
church. -
A vote of thanks was accorded
in appreciation of the addresses,
and a resolution unanimously
passed that the churches would introduce, wherever possible, the
system of weekly (Sabbath day)
giving to missions.
Mr. Geo. McKenzie sang during
the progress of the meeting, which
was presided over by Mayor Suth-
land. The proceedings were
brought to a close by the singing
of " God save the King."
Price.of Crown
Lands Doubled
Skull Fractured by
Kick From Horse
Unexpected Announcement by
As the result of a kick from a
horse which, he was taking to pasture, little Graham Evan£ at present
lies in the hospital suffering from
injuries which it is feared may
prove fatal. The poor little fellow
is well known around town, having
often accompanied his father, who
drives the bread van for Messrs.
Biggin & Poole. On Sunday last
Graham asked his father if he
could take the horse out to pick
up a little grass, whi£h is beginning
to appear amongst the trees to the
south of town.
On receiving consent Graham
started out leading the horse. Some
time afterwards he was found by a
companion lying unconscious on
the ground not far from the house.
An ugly wound was on the side
of his head where the horse had
kicked him, The animal which is
naturally a quiet one, had evidently
became a little frisky, and in
striking out had caught tne lad on
the temple, causing a terrible fracture, the calks on the shoes piercing the skull.
Latest reports from the hospital
state that Graham Evans at present
is doing fairly well, and some little
hope is entertained of his living.
The little three-year-old daughter
of Harry Horsnell, of Wood's
Lake, died in the Kelowna Hospital
yesterday morning from the effects
of terrible burns received Tuesday.
The little girl was playing round a
burning stump of a tree near her
father's house, and in attempting
to throw a stick on to the fire set
her clothes ablaze. Her clothing
was completely burned off, and she
was horribly injured all over the
body. The poor mite succumbed
soon after reaching the hospital.
Considerable interest and naturally some opposition has been
aroused by the announcement that
the government had raised the
price of crown lands to just double
the figures at which they could be
previously purchased. The . announcement is contained in an
Order-in-Council issued in an extra
to the B. C. Gazette, as follows:
. Public notice is hereby given that, under
the authority contained in section 131 of
the "Land Act," a regulation haa been approved by the Lieutenant-Governor in
Council fixing the minimum sale prices of
first- and second-class lands at $10 and $5
per acre, respectively.
This regulation further provides that the
prices fixed therein shall apply to ail lands
with respect to which the application to
purchase is given favourable consideration
after this date, notwithstanding the date of
such application or any delay that may
have occurred in the consideration of the
Further notice is hereby given that all
persons who have pending applications to
purchase lands under the provisions of
sections 34 or 36 of the "Land Act " and
jyho are not willing to complete such purchases under the prices fixed by the aforesaid regulation shall be at liberty to withdraw such applications and receive refund
of the moneys deposited on acconnt of
such applications.
Minister of Lands.
The increase in the price at
which the government will sell
crown lands will not in the slightest
degree affect the price at which
pre-emptions may be mad^in those
large areas of Central British
Columbia and the Peace River
country, which have been reserved
for this special purpose. .Pre-
emptors can take up land and
secure absolute title at the rate of
$1 per acre.
It is of interest to note that the
recent revision of the land policy
of the Provincial Government, has
had the indirect effect of also
doubling the value of lands set
apart for the endowment of the
Provincial University. An addition
to these lands already selected has
just been made in the creation of
a reserve of certain lands in Lillooet
district containing approximately
3,000 acres for university purposes.
It is expected that the end of the
present season will see 1,000.000
acres in various parts of the
province selected and set aside for
the endowment and benefit of the

Oaa autumn day Cromwell vas sit-
tiag an his porch amoking his pipe
wkea ha dttacorered out on tht sound
a boat being rowed toward the ahorc.
To«ay that region U full of boats ot
all kinds, bat then they were a rarity.
Tbe farmer watched tbe oars alternately disappear nud flash in the sun
light UU the boat entered the littte
core before his bourn and ran its nose
tip on tho beach. Then a man Jumped ont, polled ft farther up and ad-
yanced toward Cromwell.
Tbe stranger was yoong and comely,
bat rather singularly dressed. His
hat was big and pointed in the crown,
his coat was short and flaring below,
his breeches and bis shoes were ornamented with large silver buckles, his
hose were a dark red, while bis waist
was encircled by a wide belt clasped
with a wider bnckle than either ol
the other two, and in it were several
pistols of an eighteenth century pat
tern. In short, his appearance smacked of piracy.
"HaTe I struck Sachem's Head?"
asked the young man.
"That's what they call it," replied
the farmer..
The young man looked about him as
if trying to get bis bearings.   Present
ly he spoke again:
"You wouldn't mind letting tne stay
with you awhile, would you? I em-
pay for my keep."
"Where did you come from?"

The stranger thrust, his hand down
into bis breast pocket and'pulled out u
handful of Spanish pieces of eight.
The farmer cast an eager, glanpe at the
gold, went into the bouse, told his wife
and daughter tbat a strauger needed a
meal, then'went upstairs to find him
some clothes. When the young man
had been fed and reciothed the farmer
gave bim a pipe, nnd tbey sat together
ou tbe porch for u smoke. Cromwell,
being u Yankee, followed the proclivity of bis race and began to question
the' stranger^
"Guess you've got a name, haren't
"Edward Kent."
"Did you ship from the old country?"
"I did originally."
"And not tn the vessel you deserted?"
"Ever been here before?"
"Then why did yen try to find the

Cromwell kept up the pumping process for some time, but, not making
any headway, Anally, gave it up. Kont
agreed to pay. a good price fer board
and gave several of the pieces of eight
for tbe castoff suit of clothes he wore,
so no objection was raised to his remaining.
The duy after his arrival Ruth
Cromwell, the fanner's daughter, looking out of n window, saw the stranger
standing on the imrrow strip of beach
In front of the house. He held a bit
of paper in liis hnnd. which be "would
alternately consult and look at certain
objects' near by The fide was out,
exposing «a considerable area of mud,
and about n hundred ynrds from the
bench a rod; sluiped like a sugar loaf
was left coni|ilctt'ly bare. The stranger
Went down on tlu< sand till he en me to
the mud, stopped, turned, sighted some
object on the grounds In the rear of
the house, turned again for another
look nt the <oil., then, facing about,
walked to a pliip tree that stood nlone.
Arrived nt the pine, he agalu consulted tbe paper. He thi-ti cut a sma'il
branch, which he whittled to a point,
then walked with even paces to «
place where be stopped and, tyrpin^
set out at a right tm?.lf. to a rort

Tkiri, facing the buuse, he.,walked to
a polut midway betweeu the rock' be

forced the stick lie bud cut into tbe
ground. Uuth noticed .bat wben be
walked he appeared to count liis steps.
The girl's curiosity wns excited.
She was a reticeut youiig woman and
kept wuut she hud seen uot only from
her father and - rnofbej. but refrained
from asking Kent, as most girls would
have done, wbut was the meaning of
his strange walks. Stic preferred rather to wait and watch. ^ '
From the moment she had seen the
kandsotne strauger tn his singular but
becoming costume she had been greatly attracted to bliu. Girla living
where they seldom meet a man nre
liable to fall easily iu love, and Edward Kent In education and refinement vas far above any man she hud
•rer met. It was not long before the
young man conceived as strong u preference for her as she had conceived,
for him. The two rowed about sometimes ln the boat he bad come in; but,
being a heavy ship's boat, they used it
oily in windy weather, at other times
taking a common row boat.
It was on these trips that Edward
made love to Ruth and she acknowledged ber own love for him. But he
told her that their marriage depended
upon a certain contingency. He said
he had a scheme for making a large
amount of money. If he succeeded
there was no reason why they should
not be married at any time; If not,
there would be a'life of poverty for
tbem together-and-It might be better
that tbey should remain separate.
To this Uuth listened without comment, though when Edward asked ber
if she did not. think it imprudent for
tbem to marry with nothing to marry
on she assented. ' But she was no
'• talker, taking in everything that was
! said to ber. maintaining silence as to
ber opinions.
It was not long after the stranger's
arrival that he offered the farmer tbe
remaining pieces of eight if be would
pei-init him to build a log hut on his
premises. lie snid there were noises
hi the house at nigbt that prevented
. i.is" sleeping. Cromwell gladly gave
liis consent, and Kent chose a spot in
-ihe rear of the bouse and near the
-.mokchotise. It was where he had
hut In the stick. Having made all ar-
•niifjeinents. he cut down timber in the
forest, suited tn bis purpose and built
his cabin. When he had finished it
ind put a cot and n chair in it—all tbe.
furniture be needed, he said—he took
ilie Cromwell family into It to inspect
it, then locked"' he door, and no one of
them ever nfier had a peep Inside of
it till after be bnd abandoned it.
Several weeks passed when one day
Kent totd itutb Cromwell that he had
">et with u great disappointment. He
also explained tbe mystery that had
hung about him since bis arrival at
Sachem's Head. "1 am u younger son
of a country gentleman In England,"
he said. "A year ago I sailed from
London to New York to take a position with .a merchant there. On the
voyage, when off Long Island, our
ship was captured by pirates and every one except' myself was forced to
walk tbe plank. I pretended to a desire, to follow a life of piracy and
begged to, be permitted to Join tbe
crew. As the captain was very ignorant of navigation and I had made
a voyage, for the purpose of studying
It my offer was accepted. I spent
months with the pirates while they intercepted Spanish ships carrying money between Mexico and Spain and
afterward while they pillage.1 the coast
east and south of New York.        *
"One of the crew, a better man than
the rest, took a fancy to me, and when
be was wounded after a tight with an
armed merchantman and ut the point
of death told me that be and dome
comrades had buried a large quantity
of gold and precious stones they had
plundered at Sachem's Head; on the
Connecticut coast. He. gave, me this
paper, on which a.re directions where
to find the treasure."  He read:
"'Sachem's Head. Third beach east
of point of rocks. Cove contains rock
like sugar loaf 100 yards from beach
at low tide. Apex just awash at high
tide. Seventy paces west to pine tree
standing alone. From pine fifty paces
toward island to N. E. Turn at right
angle, thirty paces to rock covered by
brush. Face house, go. twenty paces
due east. Dig six feet.'
• "A few days before I reached here
tbe pirate ship smiled into the sound
past Block island, went westward looking for ships to capture as far as New
Haven, but. bearing of a war vessel,
went back. While passing here at
nigbt 1 let myself down Into a boat,
cut loose and rowed aBhore. I knew I
was near the place I wanted, but did
uot know how near. You know the
rest, except the denouement.
"1 built my cabin over the spot where
I expected to Hnd the treasure, then
dug down, lining the cabin with tbe
earth I took out' I was doomed to disappointment. I found no treasure. If
we marry we shall be doomed to a life
of poverty."
"I love you so well that I prefer a
life of poverty with you to living without you," said Ruth.
"ln that case 1 yield."
"Come with me."
She led him to the smokebou.se, unlocked the door, opened It, and they
entered. In n corner wns a sailor's
locker. Ruth opened it. and it wns full
of gold, pieces nnd jewels. Edward
looked nt ber In amazement.
"I saw your maneuvers," she said,
"and suspected your object I tunneled from tbe smokehouse and
reached the treasure ahead of you.
Since our marriage depended on It, I
m-'fontd that It should be mine."
Mrs. Kent nhvuys spoke of the for- ,

The current issue of the Vernr.ft
News   contains  a   report   of   the
Okanagan Fruit Union, Ltd., which
makes   interesting   reading.      The
report for the year   1910 as presented shows the   total   shipments
of   fruit   and   vegetables   to   have
been   I 76   carloads from the eight
packing  houses   operated   by   the
Union at Coldstream R.inrh, Long
Lake, Vernon, Summerland,  West
Summerland, Peachland, Penticton
and  Short's   Point,   made   up   as
follows:   31  straight cars of vegetables, 65 cars of apples, 6 cars of
crabs, 5 cars of prunes, 10 cars  of
peaches, 59 mixed cars of apples,
peaches, plums and prunes.     The
total   receipts  from   this   produce
was  $120,621.   The operating expenses, including  depreciation   of
fixtures and equipment were $21,-
845.45.   The earnings, commission
on   sales,  and   profit  on  sales of
material    amounted    to    $14,552,
leaving  a   deficit   on   the   year's
trading of $7,293.45.   The charges
made to the growers, says the report,   have   not,   but  the   cost   of
packing   and    operating    to    the
Union  has  been  too   high.   The
directors, however, hope that under
the    new    manager,    Mr.   H.   L.
Garraway, who has recently been
appointed, the business,   which  is
practically a co-operative concern,
and aiming at merely covering the
cost of operating, will  go   straight
Big Increase in Okanagan
Customs Business
A certain indication of the rapid
progress and development which
is taking place in the Okanagan is
shown by the increased volume of
business transacted at the Vernon
customs office during the fiscal
year which closed at the end of
March. In the amount of imports,
the duty collected, and the receipts
from the Inland Revenue Department a big jump ahead has been
made, and an increase of over 46
per cent in collections on dutiable
goods is shown.
The figures furnished by Mr. A.
Leishman, the officer in charge of
the Vernon oflice, are as follows:
Value of free goods imported
Irom foreign countries during 1910,
$96,622. Dutiable goods during
same period, $ I 70,670. Duty col
lected $52,577. Inland revenue
receipts, $8,051.
ln the preceding year the figures
were: Free goods, $56,572. Dutiable goods, $10,056. Duty collect

The people of LaSalle, Colorado
last week elected David Stewart,
a prizefighter, mayor. He was unopposed and went to Greeley early
the sane morning for a six-round
bout with Harry Smith of Omaha,
in which he was also victorious.
Stewart was doubly cheered at the
end of the contest when the announcement was made that he was
the newly-elected mayor of his
home town.
Memorial services were held

honor of Robert Railces, the founder of Sunday schools, who died

A ceremony which marks  practically the concluding  chapters  in
the acquisition from the Songhees
tribe of Indians by  the  Provincial
Government of their reservation in
the heart of Victoria was  enacted
on the reserve bythe payment, by
the government, to the  Indians, of
$421,55.2.60.   This amount represented the payment of $ 10,000 each
to the heads of forty  families,  together with added sums in varying
amounts for improvements which
they had carried out to their dwellings and lands.    The head of each
Indian family  was  handed   bankbooks with sums averaging $10,500
to their credit, speeches being  delivered by Premier McBride, Mr. J.
S. H. Matson, Mr. W. E. Ditchburn,
Hon. W. R. Ross, and Chief Cooper, the head of the Songhees.band.
It was announced last week that
the T.  Eaton  Co.  are  to  invade
Calgary and  that a  splendid  big
departmental store    will  be  built
in  the  Alberta   metropolis.    The
recent activity of the Hudson's Bay
Co. and other big  firms such  as
Piyce Jones, both of whom  have
planned big stores in that  city,  is
responsible tor this  move  on  the
part of Eatons.   The action of the
Hudson's Bay firm in invading the
territory  of  the  Eaton   store    in
Winnipeg has had a big  effect  in
deciding the Eaton firm in making
their decision and the building  of
the Calgary store is retaliation to a
certain degree.
That the milk supply from
prairies around Winnipeg is for the
most part unfit for consumption
unless pasteurized, and that the
greater part of the herds should
be shot, is the conclusion Dr.
Douglas, city health officer, arrives
at from reports of a number of
recent inspections.
After two years of deliberation,

over six million dollars.

Disease germs  by   the   billion
were let ibose on New  York last
week by the escape of some goats
from the research laboratory of the
Williard   Parker   Hospital.    The
germs had  been  injected  in  the
course of an experiment into  the
bodies of four goats,  which  were
then tied up ta browse in the back
yard of the laboratory.  An hour or
two later the goats  disappeared.
The hospital authorities  fear  that
they became captives in the hands
of neighboring East Side families.
The use of their milk for drinking
or cooking will be certain to result
in a serious epidemic.   One of the
goats, according to the police statement,  is loaded    with   smallpox
germs, a second is inoculated with
diphtheria' a third carries millions
of the  things that make   scarlet
fever,  while  the forth is loaded
with whooping cough.

The  labour troubles  at Prince
Rupert have begun  to  assume a
serious aspect.   There were several
extraordinary   scenes    there    last
Thursday when the strikers fought
the police for several hours. Several
participants were   wounded   and
one. man  died from the effects of
his injuries.   The whole city is in
a state  of great excitement and
scores  of special   constables   are
being sworn in.   The row started
when the strikers, who have been
demanding higher wages from the
civic contractors, made a concerted
attack  upon   strike   breakers.   A
brisk revolver fight with the police
followed  and   fifty   strikers   were
subsequently  arrested.   The local
militia is under arms and the con
struction of a special gaol building
is being rushed by day and night

".Such a thing as a cold is absolute-
1. unknown to the Quebec lumber
ni"ti," writes Birge Harrison, who
silent some time a winter or two ayo
i'i tho Habitant camps, "which jro"s
f r t.- prove the theory that colds
ir-vp nothing whatever to do with
e >! I. These men dress no more
l''avily than wc do in the latitude of
N'-w York; often go bare-handed, and
perform their ablutions in the snow,
w.iieh frooEos on one surface while it
is melting on another. Personal
eloanliness is not their strong point,
however. They are washed so clean
i'lsidi. by the eternal bath of oxygen
i'i which they live that they have n
fine scorn for the condition of their
ert viial man. Many of them do not
undress during the entire winter.
P-rsonally I was unable to attain to
this happy disregard for physical
cleanliness—again, perhaps, because 1
did not remain long enough in camp
After sleeping in my tlothes for a
week I began to pino consumedh' for
a bath.
"Fat pork is the one article of food
in '»'hich the Habitants put greatest
faith. Venison—which it may be said
.grows all 'round them—they retrard
ns we regard bread, useful to fill in
the  chinks.
"In addition to pork the diet consists of pea soup (which is served
In- the quart), bread, apple sauce
made of dried apples, and a rich molasses gingerbread. I certainly saw
lothing else on the .table during my
stay; nnd 1 can bear witness that this
..I'M.ii, which under the-ordinary con
ditions of civilized life would hav1
wreekel my digestion in three days'
time, proved a most satisfying nnd
wholesome diet out hero in the woods
Tli1 men seemed #to crave no change
of food, and they were n wonderfully
rugged and sturdy lot.
"For the Hubitant tho cold is a
no-durable quantity—unless, indeed,
the "white" whisky nt some weddin-
or christening hn-s been served with
((»» free n hnnd; for alcohol is more
deadly in high latitudes than even
in the tropics. But alcohol is never
allowed in tho camps.
"There is one curious contradiction
in the Habitant's attitude towards his
climatic surroundings. If he flouts
the cold out of doors, he will bask
willingly in a temperature of 00 de-
irr.-'s inside. Ho will roast all night
and be none the worse for it, apparently, in the morning.
"When in early May, the sudden
Canadian spring comes to melt the
vast accumulation of snow on the
surrounding hills, these silent rivers
are transfoimed into rushing floods
and the logs thus set free start on
their long journey to mills on the
shores of the St. Lnwjcence, 40 or 50
miles awny. This 'drive'—as it is
called—is the supreme test of the
wonderful vitality and endurance if
the ' Habitants. For two or three
weeks they work all day submerged
to their armpits in icy water, battling
with the interminable processions of
floating logs; shoving, coaxing, ens-
ing; ever watchful to prevent the
draded 'jam,' which would'tie up
the whole harvest for u year. Then
they lie down iii their wet clothing
to snatch a few hours' sleep', while
i"other tfiing continues on during the
':■ I'i   for there must be no cessation
v7rnnoe until the whole vast flo-
ili. i.- floated safely clown to the mill.
