A petition was read from W.
^ Haug, The Kelowna Farmers' Exchange and the Kelowna Canning
'Co., requesting the city to place a
i hydrant midway between the railway track and the Farmers'
Aid.. Leckie pointed out that the
city had   at   present   no   spare
[hydrants on hand, and that to send
fpr single   hydrants xas   required
/Would make them   come   pretty
expensive —- about  30   per   cent,
more than if ordered in quantities.
After some   discussion   it   was
decided that the Water and Light
Committee be authorized to procure  a stock of hydrants to   be
■'placed as required.
The inipoitant question, a sewage
system for the city, was broached
when the following letter from the
Kelowna Land and Orchard Co.
was read:
To the .Mayor and Aldermen ofthe;
City of Kelowna,
I agj directed by the board of directors to offer to the city for the purposes."
of a sewage farm from 100 to 200
acres of land at the price of $200 per
acre. This land is comprised in lots
34. 35, 36; 37. 38, 39, plan 186; and
adjoins the land at present leased to
the corporation.
This company contemplates- spending considerable sums in improving
this property, and should   the work
be  commenced,  the price per Acre
jnust be   greatly   augmented.    The
Members of the Board, however, are
-  desirous that the city should be offered
.   this land in the first place, and at a
reasonable figure, so that the corporation should have the chance of securing land suitable for a sewage   farm
in close proximity to the city boundaries.
I am turther to state that the offer
will be left open for a period of three
- months from the date of this letter.
1 am, gentlemen,
Yours obediently,
-       Kelowna Laad & Orchard Co., Ltd.
Some little discussion followed
on the desirability of the city going
.into the question of a proper sewage system, and a 'motion was
passed that steps betaken to secure
the services of a cbmpeteht engineer to report on a sewage system
for the city.
Mr. R. B. Kerr, who was present
said he was representing Dr. Moore
on of the'largest property owners
on St. Paul street, and requested
that immediate steps be taken to
open up the street through to Bernard avenue. An expression of
opinion had been received from
Mr. L. G. McPhilips, K. C. who
had been consulted on the matter.
He had Mated that the council
could expropriate the land necessary to open, up the street, and
could assess the cost of the extension, including the cost of expropriation against all the property
owners benefitted. The owner of
the land expropriated could also
be assessed, and required to assist
in paying for the improvements.
The mayor assured Mr. Kerr that
now the legal points respecting the
city'8 position had been cleared up
they would at once proceed to
make arrangements for the opening up of the street. Aid. Jones
was requested to take the matter
up with Mr. Weddell.
Aid. Dalgleish referred to a number of applications for sidewalks
which had been sent in to the
council. He spoke strongly against
the council constructing any more
plank walks. Cement walks, he
said, could be constructed for Ihe
same expense to the ratepayers as
plank walks, and should last for.
twenty years. Aid. Cox agreed
with Aid. Dalgleish.
The mayor pointed out that the
petitions which had been presented
were for plank walks, and they
could not vt-ry well change without consulting the petitioners. He
suggested that Aid. Dalgleish see
those who had signed their names
to the petitions, and get them, if
possible, to change their request to
cement walks. This Aid. Dalgleish
undertook-tb do.
A formal motion was passed
giving by-law 89, to regulate street
sprinkling a first reading.
Aid. Dalgleidh asked if it was
not possible to avoid making pools
of water and mudholes in filling
the water tank. Some better way
was needed. He had noticed that
other cities had special contrivances erected for the purpose.
It was left for the committee to
look into the matter and devise
some better scheme.
The mayor mentioned that some
of the business men had been asking for a nightwatchman, to be
appointed, oir account of a suspicion they had, that there was some
person in_town who was responsible for the frequent fires which
started up. .He had asked for the
total assessment comprised within
the fire limits, in order that a special
levy might be made for the purpose of supporting a watchman.
Before this could be done, however
it was necessary that a petition- be
presented to the council representing not less than two-thirds of the
assessed value. The council would
then be able to proceed with the
consideration of ways and means
of hiakihg the appointment. It
would need, he said, quite an addition to the taxes. Ori the present assessment of the citv, one mill
produced about $300. To keep a
watchman would need at least
three additional mills.
Aid. Leckie pointed out that the
two. worst fires we had experienced
had taken place -while there was
an efficient night watchman employed. He did not cast any reflection upon the watchman but
the circumstance went to show that
the fact of having a watchman did
not necessarily constitute a guarantee that fires would be prevented.
Aid. Copeland thought there was
need for the services of a good
detective. The business men might
do well to get together and engage
the services of a good man for a

Royal Bank Building
New Premise!
Operations were commenced
this week on the handsome new
block which the Royal Bank are
to erect on main street to the west
of the Rowcliffe block. The
structure, which is to be of brick,
two storeys in height, will be
entirely modern in construction,
and judging from the blue prints,
will be a considerable addition to
the architectural features of the city.

Public Meeting on
Irrigation Problem
Another attempt to straighten
out the difficulties and vexations of
irrigation within the area covered
by the city was made on Friday
evening last, at a meeting called
by the council at the request of a
deputation which waited upon
them at a recent session. The
deputation had desired the council
to assume control of the irrigation
system within the city, and as tlife
could not be done without the
consent of all the land owners, it
had been decided to call the
interested parties together to find
out, if possible, their wishes.
Mayor Sutherland, who presided,
said he was interested personally
not as a representative of the
council, but as the owner of land
in the city which required irrigating.
He thought something should be
done to relieve the difficulties of
the present situation. The people
on the outskirts of the city were
paying large taxes because'thev
happened to be in the city limits,
and getting very little benefit from
them, ft was only right when an
opportunity presented itself that
the city should do something for
them. They had contributed largely
to the installation of the city's
electric light and water plant, iii
which the outskirts were not much
interested. The present meeting
should make strong representation
to the council for a grant to assist
in working the irrigation scheme.
The council would take no action
themselves, but would be guided
by the wishes of the people. . He
then declared the meeting open for
A long discussion of the problem
ensued in which the already too
well known difficulties of obtaining
a satisfactory water service were
reiterated. It was the unanimous
opinion that something should be
done, and that for the council to
assume control was the most likely
solution, but how this latter was to
be accomplished, was a problem
the meeting did not solve. It was
pointed out that the city could not
take over the system unless each
individual owner of land in the
city would assign his right in the
water record to the council. Until
this was accomplished the city was
powerless to act. *
A question was asked as to what
the council proposed to do in the
event of the city.taking over the
system- In reply the mayor stated
that that was a question with which
the present council could not deal.
He doubted if any considerable
expenditure on the irrigation system
would be wise, as with the rapidly
increasing population of the city,
and'the subdivision of the land
into small lots, the necessity for
irrigation would tend to diminish.
For the present he advised that a
committee be farmed to take charge
of the scheme, and make application to the council for a grant to
assist in putting the ditches into
spape for the present year and to'
pay the expenses of a bailiff.
Eventually a motion was carried
that the city be asked to make separate grants of money for the upkeep of the system on each side
of the creek.
A committee consisting of Messrs
Crowley, Copeland, and McLennan
were appointed by the mayor to go
over the system and estimate if
possible the amount of money required to ptft the ditches and flumes
into shape, and report to the city

Mr. Jas. Harvey, sr., left for
California Wednesday morning on
business, and will be absent two or
three weeks.
Mr. C. A., Crosby, general supervisor of the British Columbia
branches of the Royal Bank was in
town this week on business. He
was accompanied by Mrs. Crosby.
Mr. C.K.L. Pyman has purchased
from Mi. D. Lloyd-Jones and Mr.
A. Day a large block of land on
the benches. The pioperty consists
of some 1,200 acres of fine
agricultural land about 8 miles up
Mission Creek.
The annual convention of the
Women's Christian Temperance
Union took place Tuesday and
Wednesday of this week. A large
number of delegates from both up
and down the lake came in by the
boat on Tuesday.
The meetings, which were held
in the Presbyterian church, opened
Tuesday afternoon, Mrs. Lipsett, of
Summerland, presiding.
Reports from local unions were
received, and a paper on " Local
Option" was read by Mrs.
Wanless, of Summerland.
On Tuesday evening at 8 o'clock
a mass meeting was held in the
church'. An address of welcome
to the delegates was delivered by
.Mayor Sutherland. On behalf of
the churches, the Rev. J. W. Davidson also welcomed the visitors.
There was, he said, a magnificent
inspiration behind the W. C. T. U.
movement and its motto: " For
God, and Home, and Country."
There was a similarity of aim between the movement and the
church. They stood side bv side
in their labours, and hence were
doubly welcomed by the churches.
The church, he said, in the course
of his remarks, were at the present
time giving more and more attention to the children of the
nation. Like the •W.'C.-T. U., the
church was seeking to make .it
easier for boys and girls to grow up
healthy, strong and noble. The
church believed in the total prohibition of liquor traffic for the
good of the nation. Womanhood,
he said, seemed to have more backbone than manhood, employing, as
it;'did, a brighter method in its
Mrs. Welsh, in an able and well
prepared address, welcomed the
delegates on behalf of the Kelowna
branch. Mrs. Cox brought greetings from the Missionary Societies
of the Methodist Church, while
Miss Reekie brought similar words
of encouragement from the Baptist
Missionary Society.
Mrs. Watson, of Summerland replied on behalf of the W.C. T. U.
Glimpses of the world's W. C.

some eighteen or twenty delegates
from outside points, . and the
meetings well attended throughout.
Regular Meeting of
Board of Trade
The Board of Trade held its monthly meeting last night, the president, Mr. J. W. Jones in the chair.
After the minutes had been read
and adopted the usual batch of
correspondence was dealt with.
Mayor Sutherland introduced a
motion that the government be
asked to establish a customs office
at Kelowna. There were some
4,000 people in the Kelowna district which was quite sufficient to
warrant the placing of an office
here. He did not, in fact, know of
any district with the same number
of people which had not got one.
Mr. R. B. Kerr also spoke on the
matter, pointing out that it meant a
good deal of loss and delay to the
people of Kelowna to have to deal
with a customs office in Vernon.
The motion was carried
Keep Monday evening, May 8th,
open for the McDonald Concert
Company in Knox Church.
It was also resolved to approach
the provincial government to build
a court-house here. The president
mentioned that Judge Swanson had
paid several visits to Kelowna and
had always complained of the lack
of accomodation here for the holding of a court.
Mr. Kerr recommended that government be advised not to build on
the site of the present lock-up
which was in a valuable business
block, to which the presence of a
lock-up would be a decided harm
and hindrance. The government
could sell the present site for a
good sum, which would go a long
way towards the expence of a new
A friotion of Mr. McDonald's
was also adopted, that the G. P. R.
,be.askeel: to provide an unloading
platform near their tracks, also a
stock slip and more trackage, and
better facilities for handling the
increasing freight traffic.
Mr.-Jones also drew attention to
the inconvenience connected with
the height of the-C. P. R. wharf. It
was difficult fbr passengers to pass
to and from the boat without
knocking their heads against the
top of the entrance. Tfte C. P. R.
should be asked to lower the
Mr. Haug thought it was not
necessary to lower the whole wharf
if some kind of a slope was made
down to the boat.
The extension of Ricter street to
the K. L. O. road was introduced,
and a motion passed that the
government be asked to build
about a mile of road necessary to
make the. connection.
It was resolved that a strong
representation should be made to
the Irrigation Convention which
meets in Calgary in August to have,
the 1912 meeting in Kelowna, It
was pointed out that the development of irrigation in the district
was now away ahead of any other
part of the province, and with four
big systems under construction, we
should have something to show
the delegates that they could not
see elsewhere.
A motion by Mr. C. G. Rose that
the banks in the city be asked to
close Thursday afternoon along
with the rest of the stores was
objected to by Mr. Kerr, and Mr.
F. R. Rees as inpracticable owing
to" difficulties connected with' the
Bills of Exchgnge Act and some
other considerations.
Mr. L. Hayman proposed that
the city be asked to complete their
wharf near the power house, and
to make an approach to it, in order
that it might be used for the loading and unloading of cement pipe,
bricks and wood, which weie
carried on the lake. The ferry
wharf was altogether inadequate
for this purpose. Hundreds of
cards of wood were also brought
across the lake and no proper
place could be found to land it.
The meeting then adjourned.
Dr. Richards left this week for
Nanton, Alberta, for the purpose
of buying horses for Messrs Coptf-
land and Richards' sales stable. A
car of heavy team horses will be
sliipped to arrive hfere about the
middle of next week.
Teachers Convention
at Vernon
The Okanagan and North
Kootenay Teachers' Institute was
held in Vernon April 18th, 19th
and 20th. There was a large and
enthusiastic delegation, about 1 15
teachers being enrolled as members. The first session was held
Tuesday afternoon, when the
president, Mr. J. Forsyth Smith,
principal of Vernon Public School,
gave his address. The educational
value of such an institute was
emphasized and the hope expressed that in every way this gathering
would prove interesting and profitable.
Then followed in each of the
sessions the reading of carefully
prepared papers on vital subjects
of teaching. In the discussions
which followed the reading of
these papers, Inspectors Miller and
Pollock with others offered many
valuable suggestions.
. Mr. JL Barker, of Peachland, gave
an excellent address on- "The
English School System," in wh.th,
by comparison, some defects of
our B. C schools were pointed out,
and a~strongplea was made for the
teaching of classics, v Miss McNaughton read a very carefully
prepared paper on "The Teaching
of First Year Latin," in which the
essential principles of teaching the-
subject were clearly set forth. This
paper commanded much hearty
appreciation. Another paper deserving of special mention was that
of Miss; Yirill, principal of the
Penticton public school, on the
'Educational value of th? Study of
English Literature/" By resolution
it was requested that this paper be
printed, i^ order that the teachers
of7the Iitstitute have the; oppor-
iutnt^fSr a: closer stfidy^ of7_ta7
salient points.
At the public meeting Wednesday
evening Rev. Mr. Welsh of Kelovvna
gave an address on "Educational'
Ideals and Citizenship," in which
was strongly asserted the unexcelled
opportunities of bur public educational system to reach its highest
ideal iii the production of character
and the attainment of social
efficiency.  ■
On the- whole, the Association
was a splendid success. The stay
of the teachers in Vernon'
rendered very pleasant by
cofdialitv of the citizens of
town. On Friday morning
Board of Trade entertained
teachers  to a  drive  through
beautiful  valleys of   the   Vernon
Quite a large number of the
teachers who had never been in

Penticton, returning Saturday to
their respective schools.

The Patrioiisn   of      e Irishman Turr.
ed   to   Agricultural   Improvement.
There is a movement in Ireland
that is attracting a? much interest m
the raral districts a? the political
question and is more piacticable at
thia hour. It is a co-operative or-'
ganization among the fanner? known
as the Irish Agricultural Society.
headed by Sir Horace Plunkett, devoid of political significance and de.
voted to the improvement of the iiv-i
Ing conditions of the Irish farmer as
well as the improvement of his. land
and methods.
The country people of Ireland have
lived in a state ;>f abject and help,
less poverty for so many generations
that it requir-- more thau the oppor.
tunity to encourage a countryman to
attempt any reforms in his home or
his methods of working the soil. It is
not sufficient to tell him that he now
has the right to own his land and
build himself a comfortable cottage
and barn; he must be encouraged to
do it. Ireland is a land of ideals,
the Irishman is always striving toward something, nnd until the improvement of hi? life and estate is
incorporated in tlie rank of his ideals
they mean nothing to him.
These local co-operative organizations have established creameries,
credit banks, poultry societies, and
agricultural societies. The co-operation not only mukes the individual
farmer wealthier but arouses interest
in rural questions of all sorts and affords a medium through which the
individual farmer may be reached by
♦hose who have something to contribute toward his education. The effort is to make men in Inland rather
than money, but Ireland has been
so impoverished that mouey and prosperity are essential to development
and the Lc»l co-operative societies
do manage to buy the farmers' supplies cheaper than he could and sell
them to better advantage, so the
Irish farmer is a more prosperous man
because he has his co-operetive society.
The tremendous importance of
building up the rurnl districts of a
country can scarcely be realized. How
much the financial standing and
prosperity of a nation depend upon
the happiness, comfort, and content
ment of the country people it is impossible to estimate. No nation cati
be great while the peasantry starve.-,
bo if Ireland is to stand upon her
own feet all the ardor of Irish patriotism should be brought into play in
th« development of the soil and the
people who work it.
An auxiliary organization, the
United Irishwomen, has been gain
ing in numbers recently. Its purpose
is more particularly tin improve
ment of home life and the thing-
pertaining to women in the country
districts of the island. Those things
of a more or less intangi'.le character
which cannrt be deliberately prompt
ed like. a business proposition but
which make the social life of a peop.e
are in the women's hand3.

The Fearsome Triceratops.
A terrible looking beast, but interesting, as it was the last of the great
land reptiles, is the triceratops. It
had a head like a rhinoceros; but, un
like the rhinoceros of to-day, it carried
three formidable horns upon its face
and a collar of spikes or spines around
its neck. Skulls of this creature
which have been unearthed measure
seven feet and more in length. The
animal had a total length of some
twenty-five feet. It is the opinion of
Prof. Marsh, a great authority on pre
historic beasts, that we have here a
dinosaur trying to become a mammal.
It is the opinion of this expert, too,
that the creature got too "specialized," and therefore died out—the usual end of a too great ambition!—

Sour Milk.
Milk is composed of solids and water. Coagulated milk, which is called
curd in the country, is rich in casein.
It contains carbon, hydrogen, oxygen,
nitrogen and sulphur, a combination
of animal chemicals of great value.
Whey is the watery part of miik. It
contains a natural sugar. Many people throw sour milk away. Wise-ones
utilize it. By draining off the water
curd remains a; a solid. Put a cupful
of curd irra cheesecloth and twist the
loose ends together and hang it where
it will drain overnight. In the morning place it in'a dish and flake it with
a fork and salt. Give it to tho children and tell them it is the same
thing that Miss Muffit was eating
when along came tho spider."

Which Sleep Through the Winter.
That certain ;.nimals retire to a
C/neealed place and remain dormant
or in a state cf greater or Jess lethargy during the winter months is a
well knov n tact. That during this
time they take neither food, nor
drink is likewise known, but/ just
how life is sustained under these conditions no one knows.
A number of hibernating animals
acquire a great amount of fat, usually just under the skin, and during
the dormant period, as the naturalist
theorizes on the subject, this is consumed by its possessors by absorption, and they come out of the sleep
in the spring much attenuated, but
in the case of serpents, frogs, toads
and bats no such accumulation has
been noticed. In order that a certain
amount of heat may be maintained it
is the habit of these creatures to con*
ceal themselves in warm places or to
congregate in secluded quarters.
Bears, hedgehogs, raacoons, opossums
and such animals go into holes in
' trees, hollow thumps, crevices in tbe
rocks or beneath the roots of- fallen
trees. WocJ7_.ucks and their kind
retreat to the depths of burrows made
by themselves, in which they live in
the summer and deepen for greater
warmth and ..rotection during the.
winter sleep.
Fro*s and toads sink into the mud,
so do alligators, crocodiles and all
lizards. Shell's!, dig down into the
soft bottoms of their water holes and
the catfish and the big mouth or
Oswego ba33 forget their summer
cares and go to sleep when winter
The best example of perfect winter
sleep is seen in bats. At the beginning of cold weather these creatures
huddle together in-bundles, become
comatose and do not stir until warm
weather comes again. An old hollow
tree, or best of all a cave, affords the
bats their winter protection.
Four  Great   Musician*. ^
Palestrina- was a revolutionist ia
his day, but is now virtually obsolete
even for the severest classicists.
Gluck was as radical an innovator
as Wagner, yet it is only occasionally and with difficulty that one of his
v.orks can now be briefly resuscitated.
Beethoven was a madman even to
many of the best musicians as late
as 1805, when, as that musical veteran, Prof. Haupt, himself said the
"Fifth Symphony" was rehearsed in
Berlin for the first time and the orchestra dashed the music from the
racks, v'.aclaring it was crazy and
could never be played. Now this same
"Fifth Symphony" is considered a
model of form, and its composer is
the cherished idol of conservatives
and classicists.
Two Sunsets Per Day.
There is one place in the world
where tha sun sets twice daily, and
that is at Leek, in Staffordshire, England. The reason of .this is that a
jagged mountain is situated to the
west of the town, and in the evening
the sun sets behind it and darkness
comes on. Then the first sunset occurs, the gsus lamps are lit, and appar-
. ently night has set in. But it has
not, for in the space of an hour or so
the sun reappears again through tba
opening at the side of the mountain,
and daylight again appears. Artificial
lights are extinguished, and daylight
again prevails until the sun descends
below the opening and the second
sunset occurrs and night comes to
Berlioz, the famous Fren:h composer .was made miserable by his wife.
Hs married Miss Smithson,. an ao-
tress, many years younger than himself. She had prolonged its of jealousy and ill temper, ruined him by
her theatrical ventures and finally fell
from a carriage and broke her leg,
tl..: ending her artistic career. Berlioz bore with her in patience until,
she finally felt him. He was a tall
man, of stern aspect and very dignified. In spite of his immense musical abilities as a composer he could
play no instrument except the guitar,
and that very badly.
Rene's Seat Girt Tomb.

When and How to Combat the
Pests of the Orchard
The following concise instructions
have prepared by Mr. R. M. Winslow, the provincial horticulturist:
Scab or black spot on fruit, leaf spot,
caterpillars and all biting insects, scale
insects, aphids.

of lead.    Unnecessary in Dry Belt.
Do winter pruning before the first application. In moist climates or if we»tl;er
be unusually damp, give a fourth application of lime-sulphur B two or three weeks
;>fler third spraying. For aphids, watch
very carefully to detect first ones, just  be-

plications  unnecessary with  non-scabbing
varieties or in the Dry Belt.
Third Application
Just after blossoms fall. Use lime-
sulphur B.
Note—Cut out and burn blight as soon
as seen, cutting one foot below diseased
nrea. Disinfect tools. In unusnally damp
weathear. give fourth spraying, lime-
sulphur B, two or three weeks after third
Brown   rot,    shot-hole,    fungus,    slugs,
aphis, gummosis.
First Jipplicalinn
Shortly before  buds  burst.     Use lime-
sulphur A.
Second application
Just after fruit is set. Use lime-sulphur C.
Third Application
In   early   June,   arsenate   of lead,   one
pound to forty gallons, for slugs.
Where brown rot is   prevalent,   destroy
all mummied fruit in the autumn ;   prune
the tree to admit 3un!ight, and thin fruit
so that no fruits touch each other. Look
for aphids just before buds burst, and if
found, spray with btack leaf at 1-60.
Spray for slug on cherry as on the pear.
For gummosis, cut out gum-pockets, disinfect and paint the wounds. Prune
bearing cherry-trees lightly after fruit has
been picked. Discourage heavy growth
of young trees.
Leaf curl, twig-borer, mildew.
First application
Shortly before buds burst. Use lime-
sulphur A.
For mildew, cut off and burn all affected
twigs at winter pruning. No. satisfactory
summer spray for mildew has been yet
secured. Lime-sulphur at 1-60 is worthy
of further trial.
First Application
Before growth Legins. Use Bordeaux
Spraying hardly pays for anthracnose.
Cut out and burn old canes as soon as fruit
is picked. Keep plantations well cultivated
and fertilized. Set out new plantation
about fifth year.
Preparation of Sprays
Lime-sulphur A, winter strength. Dilute
the commercial preparation, I gallon to 9
of water.
Lime-sulphur B, summer strength, for
apples and pears. Dilute the commercial
preparation, I gallon to 35 or 40 of water.
Lime-sulphur C, summer strength for
plums, cherries, etc. Dilute the commercial preparation, I gallon to 55 or 60 of
water. Experimental as yet, try a few
trees first.
Arsenate of Lead, use 2 lbs. of the commercial paste to 40 gallons of water. For
slugs I lb. to 40 gallons.
Black Leaf Nicotine Extract. Dilute
1-60 for woolly aphis, mealy plum aphis,
1-70 for black aphis, and 1-80 for summer
spraying on apple aphis.
Bordeaux Mixture, 4, 4, 40 formula. See
Formula. For Insecticides
/.   Internal Poisons (for  Biting Insects).
(1.) Arsenate of Lead—used almost exclusively in British Columbia. Use only
paste form, do not accept powdered.
Ordinarily, us* 2 lbs. to 40 gals. (Imperial).
For pear slug, use I lb. to 40 gals. Caterpillars, when plentiful, 3 lbs. to 40 gals.
(2.) Paris green for cut worms, mix I
lb. Paris green with 50 lbs. bran moistened
with sweetened water. Scatter in evening
on soil by plants.
(3.) White Hellebore, I oz. to 2 gals,
water for spraying. For dusting on plants,
use undiluted. For root maggot, dust
close to plants.
2.    Contact Poisons (for Sucking Insects).
(1.) Black Leaf Tobacco Extract. Ddute
the commercial article with water as
follows: 1-60 for early spraying, or for
wooly aphis or mealy plum aphis in summer; 1-70 for black aphis on cherry; 1-80
for green apple aphi3 in summer.
(2.) Whale-oil 5oap, 7 lbs., Quassia
chips, 8 lbs. to 100 gals,  water.    Boil the
chips in about 8 gals, water for I hour.
Dissolve the soap in hot water, strain, nnd
mix both solution;) together, add water to
make 100 gals. This is an old and efficient
remedy for aphis.
(4.) Lime-sulphur wash. See under
/. Bordeaux Mixture.
Copper Sulphate (Bluestone)        4 lbs
Unslacked Lime 4 lbs
Water 40 gals.
Dissolve the Copper Sulphate in a wooden vessel with hot water, pour it into n
barrel, and add cold water to make 20 gn!s
slake the lime with hot water, and add
water to make 20 gals., stir both well, and
pour the lime into the crppei" sulphate
barrel. Observe these directions very
For Fall spraying, for black spot   canker
on the apple-tree, use double quantities of
lime and copper sulphate.
2, Lime-sulpher.
The commercial article is used in British
Columbia almost altogether. When bought
it should be of a strength to register 32.5.
when tested with a Baume Hydrometer, or
a specific gravity of 1.28 on the specific
gravity hydrometer.
For   winter   application   dilute   with   9
times its volume of   water.    For   summer j
application dilute 35 to 40 times,   und   for ,
summer use on plums and   cherries   with
55 to'60.    Summer   applications,   even   at
these dilutions may cause more or less injury   to   foliage.    Experiment   on   a    few |
trees first. j
(For Wounds on trees, pm >ing-loo!s used for
Corrosive sublimate, I part to 1000 of
water. Best to get tlie drug-store tablets
use one tablet to a pint of vvnter. Apply
with brush or swab.
Corrosive sublimate is highly poisonous
if taken internally. It also outrides metals
and must be used in wooden or glas3
Hints on Successful Spraying
1. Get pruning done before doing winter spraying.
2. Know what you are spraying for.
3. Get a good pump, and take care
of it.
4. Spray with at least ICO lbs. pressure
us<ng a large circular nozzle of the Friend
type. If you can use 150 lbs. or over, the
Bordeaux no/zel gives a batter driving
spray for winter spraying of old trees.
Use an Angle nozzle.
5. Spray thoroughly. Get every spot
covered. There is no injury from over
spraying. Half-hearted spraying is useless
for the trees, and costly for the owner.

Ever since Eve chose the prettiest and most becoming fig-leaf in the garden the eternal feminine haa dressed more
richly than the male. It is characteristic of the sex that woman had an intuitive understanding of the economic value of
good clothes long before the idea penetrated the reasoning head of man. Always she has wanted them for herself (and
usually she gets them). The small boy lifting his voice against the maternal application of soap suds and scrubbing
brush is the early masculine protest against the doctrine of the value of appearance which met the usual and most deserved
fate of masculine protest.
It is one of the unending struggles of feminine intelligence to instil the truth of the doctrine in the dull male mind.
But the dull male mind is beginning to understand and appreciate.—He is beginning to demand finer raihment with
the result that the demand for
20th Century Brand Garments
keeps the big tailor shops in Toronto working overtime.    O, you Adam, come look at these fine clothes!

The committee of the " made in
Canada" fair to be held in Vancouver are endeavouring to arrange
a novel scheme for the erection of
the fair building. The idea is to
have the structure built in a single
day, the carpenters of the city to
the number of a hundred, a thousand, or eighteen hundred aa many
as necessary to give their services
on some public holiday.
An Australian carpenter has laid
claim to the earldom and estates of
the Earl of Dudley, governor-
general of the Commonwealth.
A  blind  horse  the   other   day
kicked his way through two   big
plate, glass  windows  of a jewelry
store in New York and sent $200,-
000   worth  of   diamonds   in   the
window  flying    into    the    street.
Policemen stationed at this, one of
the busiest corners in down-town
New  York,  had all they could do
to control the crowds which watched  the  proprietors  and  clerks of
the establishment pick up the gems.
The jewelers said that an inventory
would be necessary before it would
be  known  if anybody   had   got
away with any of the diamonds.
" The following rider was attached
to the verdict of accidental death
given at the inquest on four loggers
killed by the explosion of dynamite
at Pitt Lake : "This jury is of the
opinion that owing to the number
of accidents that have occurred by
the careless -use of dynamite none
should be allowed to use explosives
for blasting:ptirposes but properly
qualified men and in cities or
municipalities those men should be
appointed by the qity or municipal
authorities."    7J
Reynold's  Newspaper   says    a
good deal of amusement is  being
caused on the  big  Atlantic  liners
by the extent of the  retinues  of
employes which some families find
it necessary to take on the voyage
across the  herring pond to  minister to their comfort  arid  sense  of
importance.  In one recent instance
the father had his valet, the mother
her maid as well as a special stewardess,  the   elder   daughter   her
maid, the younger daughter her
governess, and  each  of the two
sons their nurse—or a  retinue  of
seven persons.   In another instance
the father had his chauffeur as well
as a man-servant, the  mother  her
maid, the son  his  tutor,  and  the
two daughters their governess and
nurse  respectively.     Those . who
make this display are in most cases
it must be said, not subjects of this
effete old monarcy at all,  but  citizens of the great, free, go-as-ydu-
like American republic.

A development of the greatest
importance to; the whole of the
Okanagan, and one that will revolutionize : the handling   of  freight
in this district was perfected last
Wednesday when the tug, Castle-
gar, was launched from the ways
at Okanagan Landing.   Early last
year her keel was laid,  and from
then until now, under the supervision of Mr.  Stobo,  skilled  men
have toiled day in and day outun-.
til the last touch was put to her
name.   To Mrs. Captain Reid  fell
the honor of christening*.   Just a1
few minutes after  3  p.  in.  when
Mr. Bulgar gave the command   to
J1dut" and asTtfie tug slowly  glided
down the ways gaining speed  as
she went sweeping past the spectators into the deep: waters of the
Okanagan Lake,,Mrs. Reed broke
the bottle of sparkling liquid across
her bows.   There was little demonstration attending the  launch, but
a large number, of residents and
others, including the school children, were present to watch   the
ceremony.   From the bow of the
boat floated a pennant with the
name Castlegar;  on the mast was
the Canadian  Pacific   Company's
house flag, and. from   the   stern
waved the red  ensign.   This tug
has been built for heavy duty. Her
length over all is 96 feet, moulded
beam 18 feet.   She is fitted  with
compound engines,  has a screw
6 feet 9 inches, draft 7 feet 10 in.
and will develop a speed of about
11 knots per hour.   Her w<jrk will
mainly consist in towing car barges
on the lake, two of which have recently been constructed, After the
launch she was berthed at the new
dock and coaled, and on Saturday
made her first cruise in the lake.
Capt. Weeks will shortly take command and the Steamer Aberdeen
will be taken up for repairs. While
the ■ Aberdeen is undergoing  repairs the Steamer ' York   (Copt.

t-ikf pride in their one best frock
mi.de by the home dressmaker
"whose work is n-ally beautiful, my
<!enr. and so reasonable, too," have
but a verv vacue idea as to just what
the workrooms of a srreat Paris dress-
maker are like There every one has
his own specialty-how these Paris
erirU wruild smile over the efforts of
ihe neishl.orhood sewing woman who
can turn out a very neat tittle sown,
or =o it seems to us. in three days,
putting everv stitch into it herself! —
ami the work is most cleverly and
carefully divided. There are girls
who never handle anything but
bodices; others who only deal with
.leeves; and for skirts, furs, cloaks,
embroideries, lingerie, etc., there are
special departments of workers.
\uain. in each atelier the workers!
have various ranks. There is the
premiere, the seconds, the first;
"hands," the spwing machine girls,
the stnnll "hands." the apprentices,
and finallv the "arpettes," that is
t!ie little (.'iris who do the errands and
ni-!)  from floor to floor.
One of the ino»t important work-
room* is, of course, thnt of the
drauuhtsmpn. where new models are,
• i-iric invented and where models
that have b n created are "fixed."
For among leading coutouriers there
are some who work like architects
•md others like florists.
The "architect.." before handlim?
the material with -which the crown is
to be made, draw sketches and meditate over them. Pencil or brush in
hand they look for tone, shape, line,
li.-.-.uo. and it is only when every detail has been settled that the model
is can ind out according to the drawing and the various notes which ac
company it.
After everything is "established,'
so that all there remains to do is to
sew it together, the draughtsmen
comes in and copies the model, which
is pinned on to the mannequin.
King as a Fire Fighter.
The idea of a real live king aetinu
as ,a fire chief is rather novel. Such
was the case recently in Saxony when
King Frederick rushed about directing the firemen, who were endeavor
ing to quell the flames that ravished
a portion of the palace. Princess
Matilda, a sister of the king, gave >i
hridge party in her apartments and.
while the noble players were in the
midst of their game the wires on h
Christmas tree still standing .in the
apartments short-circuited and in a
second the room was a mass of
flames. The party scattered in con
fusion, but King Frederick rushed
upon the scene and took an active
part in extinguishing the blaz«j.
When the fire apparatus arrived he
took the firemen in hand and directed them with all the ability of in
expert  and   experienced   fire  chief.
Foiled the MatcVi Scraper.
Tbe new boarder stepped into the
ro'>m and closed the door. The landlady stood in the hall until she heard
him exclaim, "Hang it all!" Then
she chuckled softly and went downstairs.
"Saved, and by vaseline." she said.
"My detective instinct told me t-htit
that man is the kind that scratches
matches on the woodwork. Many a
door jam and mantelpieces in the
vicinity of gas jets has been scratched past redemption by matcii fiends
who had no' respect for the furniture.
But 1 have got the best of them. 1
simply smear with vaseline the woodwork that is convenient for scritehiri.1
matches; then the matches won't
light. The man C esn't know why,
but he never tries it again."   ,
The Arabic  Day.
The Arabic day begins at sunset,
and the particular one which begins
any month is that ou which tlie new
moon is first seen after sunset. Apart
trom the cloudiness of the sky, there
may be and generally is considerable
difficulty in seeing the crescent, lost,
as it must always be, in the radiance
of the sea sun, and consequently
there is always uncertainty for some
time after sunset whether the day
that has just begun is to be reckoned
with the last month or ts the first of
a new month.
