The mayor asked what the council wished to do in regard to the
request made by the Board of
Trade at the last meeting to improve the city's wharf in front of
the, power house so as to Bring it
into use. -
The wharf had never been of
any benefit to the city, observed
Aid. Dalgleish, as they had never
used 'it.. .;. '" ""■ AA>.-'      A'.\   ;,_,
AJjl>„ Leckie did not think that in
its'present shape thejr could make
much use of it The. wharf should
have been built xipposite some
street Instead of that it headed
right into thepowei|;house^ AThe
approaches to it^weicii^
would be necessary to%t>tm3r some
kind of connection-with the nearest street
Aid. Dalgleish was of opinion
that the city should not undertake
to spend any money on the wharf
■ this year.;7 A
The matter was laid aside for
the present
The mayor announced- .that die
council had arrived at an agreement with Mr. Weddell respecting
the extension of St. Paul Street
through to Bernard Avenue, and
the work would be proceeded with
at once.
In reply to Aid. Cox who asked
what price wits to be paid for the
land necessary to open up the
street, mayor Sutherland said, that
$2,500 would be paid for the 66
feet, which he thought was' quite a
reasonable figure. There was now
ho need to go to the legal expense
of expropriating the land. The
question now was whether ten or
twenty year debentures should be
issued for the money it would be
necessary to raise.   ~ A'".
Aid. Dalgleish thought it would
come easier on those who were
assessed for the cost of the work
if the longer term were adopted.
Mr. R. B. Kerr who was present
said he waited on the council in
the matter of St. Paul street, but he
understood that an amicable settlement had been arrived at with
Mr. Weddell. He had wondered
if all other legal matters had been
complied with.
The mayor informed Mr. Kerr
that the undertaking would be
simply advertised in the same way
as any other local improvement
and people be given an opportunity to petition against it.
Next' week, the mayor announced the council hoped to have
the estimates for the year ready.
On the suggestion of Aid. Dalgleish the tenders which had been
received for wooden sidewalks
were opened, and found to be as
John E. Todd, for sidewalks on
Ellis street, St. Paul street and
Doyle avenue, 31 cents per foot.
D. H. Hinsley, for sidewalks on
Ellis street, St. Paul street and
Doyle avenue, 31 cents per foot.
I. L Mawhinney, for all wooden
sidewalks required by city 334
cents per foot,
E. J. Pettigrew, for sidewalks on
Ellis street, 33 cents; St. Paul street
33 cents, and Doyle avenue, 33
cents; or for all three, 32J cents
per foot.
J.  A. Bigger, for  all   wooden
sidewalks required   by   city,   35
cents per foot.
The  various tenders were  referred to the Public Works Committee to deal with.
A deputation consisting of Mr.
W. E. Adams, Mr. J. B. Knowles
and Mr. G. A. Fisher, who formed
the  publicity   committee    of   the
Board  of Trade, waited,  on   the
Mr. W. E. Adams, who introduced the deputation, said they were
there in  reference  to a donation
from the city council to the Board
of Trade  for publicity  purposes,
and they wished to appeal to the
generosity of the council to give as
large donation  as possible for that
purpose.   It was highly important
that the  city should   be properly
advertised,   and   he   hoped   the
council would do all they could to
assist the  Board in their work in
that direction." .^
In reply to Aid. Copeland, who
enquired if the Board were asking
for any special sum, Mr A Adams
said  they   would    need \ ya   the
neighborhood of $750........
This announcement was received
by the Aldermen withr gentle
whistles and raising of eyebrows.
Mr. Adams, however, proceeded
to aduce arguments to show that
the amount they had asked was
not at all unreasonable. He did
not 'think the council had done
very much for the Board of Trade
in the past, and from lack of funds
the' Board had hot up'ld the
present accomplished much in the
way of advertising, as compared
with'other places. It was certainly
necessary that the name of Kelowna
be kept before the public.
The city, said the mayor, would
like to do all they could to assist
the Board of Trade, but it was a
case of the spirit being willing, and
the finances low.
Aid. Jones suggested that the
publicity committee give the council some idea as to how the money
asked for would be spent
The first necessity, said Mr.
Adams, were new booklets. There
were very few of the old ones left,
and they were completely out of
date. The secretary of the Board
was getting three or four enquiries
daily with respect to opportunities
in. the vicinity, and the only booklet he had to send supplied out of
date information, which was very
misleading, and illustrated with
cuts made several years ago. It
was the intention of the Board to
get out two booklets. One a iarge
one with good cuts, and the other
a small handy booklet or folder,
which could be more easily carried
in the pocket...
In addition to the new booklets,
continued Mr. Adams, the Board
wished to place frames with collections of photographs in a few prominent places. They desired to
have these frames at London, Eng.
Montreal and Sicamous. Anothci
expense would be the replacing of
the old sign on the C. P..R. wharf
which blew down from the roof
of the freight shed. This would
cost about $40 or $50. There were
also several smaller items.
Aid. Cox remarked that he had
always noticed that the information
supplied to passengers at Sicamous
was mostly concerning Vernon,
and when passengers had taken
the train again for the Okanagan,
folders about Vernon were thrown
into the cars.
The Board of Trade, said Mr.
Adams,, had got to receive some
kind ef aid from the council or the
advertising of the town -would have
.to be left completely, alone.
Aid. Dalgleish suggested that it
would be a good idea if the real
estate men would dip into their
pockets along with the city to provide effective advertising.
Thd real estate men were already
doing a good deal in that direction
said Mr. Adams. It was quite true
they were doing it for their own
profit, but where they made the
one profit on the sale of land to a
new settler, the retail stores would
continue to derive an advantage
for years to come. His own company were spending from #300 to
$500 every year for booklets. Board
of Trade booklets, however, had
an advantage over those issued by
a company; ihey were better received by the public, who were in-
inclined to place more confidence
in their statements.
I might say, here interposed the
mayor, that $500 is all the money
that is available for the purpose of
a grant. And this is after depriving
the hospital of their usual donation,
and giving all to the Board of
$500 said Mr. Adams, would no
doubt help considerably, buKwould
not nearly cover the expense of
all thev had wished to do.
Mr. J. B. Knowles said that ih
advertising matters we were now
in competition with other towns in
the valley, all of which were getting out good booklets. Kelowna
would have to spend money if the
people wished to keep in line with
what was going on all around. This
year there was the additional expense of new cuts, which would
probably not be necessary for another year or two.
The council thoroughly appreciated all that, said the mayor, and
would like to see all done that
could be done, but there was quite
a drain on the city's finances this
year;  -     -   '
A motion was then submitted
and carried, that the city grant $500
to the Board of trade for -publicity
was time something was.
There were already some bylaws, said the mayor, to open up
certain streets. Possibly they might
be made to include Wilson street.
Aid. Jones observed that there
was quite a lot of filling required
which would cost considerable
money, tfe suggested that some
kind of temporary fill could be
made which would relieve the
situation, and the work could be
completed later on wheft the bylaw passed.
Aid. Dalgleish thought the committee might go over the ground
during the next week arid see what
could be done.
Mr. Brooke was assured that the
matter would be taken up at once.
The meeting then adjourned
until Saturday, June 3rd.

The Sprinkling By-law No. 89,
was then taken up. The watering
to be done, said the mayor, had
been cut down to what could be
accomplished by one team in half
a day, and the rate fixed accordingly. It was possible that the
team might be able to cover a little
more ground. If so, all outside the
area included in the by-law would
get free sprinkling.
The by-law as altered fixed a rate
t>f two cents per foot frontage on
Bernard Ave. from Abbott street
to Ellis street, and one cent on
both sides of Pendozi street, from
Bernard Ave. to Leon Ave., both
sides of Water street from Bernard
avenue to Lawrence avenue, and
on*lots I, 2, 3, 4, 5, block 12, registered plan 462. This practically
covered all the business houses.
The tax was to be payable during
the months of May, June, July,
August and September of the present year.
By resolution the by-law was reconsidered and finally passed.
Aid. Jones said he wished to call
attention to a statement shown him
by the city clerk, giving the arrears
of JWater, Light and Scavenging
taxes. There were many people,
he noticed, who were seveaal
months in arrears, and some of
the accounts were getting quite
large. The clerk had sent out
notice after notice, which had been
entirely disregarded, and he
thought that Mr. Dunn should be
given some authority to enforce
payment. Some of the people
concerned might be getting out of
town, and he thought action should
be taken at once. In the case of
Water and Light taxes being in
arrears, the service could be disconnected, but scavenging was
something they wanted to enforce.
The following resolution was
passed : "That the city clerk be
authorized to collect through the
small debts court any payment 60
days overdue on Water and Electric
Light and Scavenging, and that
Water and Electric Light connections be cut off. The above to
apply on all future • liabilities of
like kind."
Mr. P. Brooke appeared before
the council to ask for information
respecting the opening up of
Wilson street through to Ethel
street. He had undertsood when
the sidewalk was put in that the
council would do something towards opening up the street. As
the owner of the last two lots in the
section subdivided, he was peculiarly situated, as teams were having
to drive over his garden. Quite a
number of delivery rigs, etc., had
driven lately right in front of his
verandah, and he had begun tb

Hon. Mr. Ross visited Toronto
and went closely into the details
of Ontario's system and secured
copies of Ontario's Forest Fire Act
regulation's for forest and fire
ranges, equipment and other data.
On his return- home, .the British
Columbia minister made 'application to Ontario for a practical superintendent to take charge of organizing the fire ranging service in the

Every man, woman and child
who was alive and in Canada at
midnight last night must be counted by the census enumerators, who
commence their labours to-day. If
this were all, the work of the enumerators would be no light one,
especially in scattered rural districts
but added to this, searching enquiries aie to be made and a mass
of information collected on such
matters as live stock, farm lands,
orchards, small fruits, farm crops,
factories, accidents, insurance, fisheries, mines and a host of other

rest assured, however, that none of
his confidences will be abused.
The government has pledged itself
that no other use will be made of
the information obtained than the
compiling of statistics, the value of
which needs no explanation.- It is
distinctly stated in the official announcements that the census returns will not be used as a basis
for taxation, or any other purpose
than that stated.
Each enumerator before he takes
up his duties has to take a solemn
oath of secrecy. He must not
divulge any information he collects,
nor show his returns to anyone.

In the present census of Canada
an attempt is being made to cover
accurately every bit of Canadian
territory where human life is known
to exist. The district of Ungava,
stretching from the east coast of
Hudson Bay to Labrador, and comprising an area of 354,000 square
miles was also counted by the
Mounted Pdlice last winter, but no
report is yet in. One white man
to a thousand; square miles of
territory there is a liberal estimate.

report is not expected until October
next. With the exception of these
outermost districts, however, Chief

Ten years hence, with the advent
of the Hudson Bay railway which

and with the development of

The Wood For a Fine Instrumeift
• Comes From Various Parts of ti.3
World, and Is Chosen For Its
Resonant Qualities—The Great Secret In Violin Making Is the Conv
position  of the  Varnish.
"How do you account for the extraordinary prices which old violins by
famous makers fetch to-day?" an interviewer put the question recently
to a famous collector—who has gathered together inn:.y valuable instruments—apropos of the fact that Kube-
t.ii leeeiuiy completed the purchase
of the famous "Emperor" Stradivarius
violin, pronounced by Joachim to be
the finest instrument he had ever
se"ii, and which is stated to be worth
$50,000. "Is it becfAise," the reporter
continued, "materials used by the old
makers   arc   unobtainable   now?"
"No," wns the reply; "it is easy
enough to get good materials, but it is
not so easy to discover the secrets
of the art of violin-making possessed,
for instance, by Antonio Stradivari,
t'-e fatuous violin-maker of Cremona.
The materials with which he made
\ i*. iins cost him but a few shillfr.igs;
!.:■.:. whereas makers to-day turn out
violins by the hundreds, he spent
iiu.itUs upon, una ■ instrument, and
I'Vea then it is an historic fact that..
lie sent a lot of violins to England
to be sold at $25 a piece, and they
had to be returned because they cou'.d
not be disposed of.
"Stradivari knew how to select properly seasoned wood in the first place.
Three kinds of wood are used in making the violin—maple for the back,
the split-wood sides, and the neck;
spruce pine for the top; and ebony
for the finger-board, the tail piece or
string-holder, and the pegs. The fine
maple-wood is usually bought in Bohemia. It is very hard wood, and difficult to work. This maple-wood
should be- both resisting and elastic,.
in order to send back the vibrations
produced, by the top. And for the.
top a spruce pine is chosen, which
must hi1 at the same time very firm
._>«! little resinous; for the top m.u.t
produce the greatest number of vi-
i.intiion.- possible. The best violin-
tops come" from, Switzerland.
"Then, of course, much depends on
tlie shape of the instrument, and ,the
beauty of a Stradivarius is that it is
built ou a model which can be made
to speak in all tone's. Mere age docs
not make a violin perfect. If it wa.J
clumsily and badly made in the beginning there is no magic in time th-.;t
will remedy these defects. All the
old in?iruments—that is, the genuine
ones, for there are hundreds of fakc3
wiiicii lire passed off as old makes—
are built on lines which have certainly been successfully copied, but which
fail to reach the tone of tlie old violins simply because of some little'dec
feet in the wood or the varnish.
"The violin to-day is practically the
same instrument :is it was three hundred years ago, and th.> in spite of
tho fact that every violin-maker has
at some time iu his career been possessed by an ambition to improve on
the violin as it stands. I have seen
at least five hundred specimens of
these experimental designs, and some
of them are the craziest notions that
ever hatched in the human brain. I
have seen a violin shaped like a tri-
ang'.e, violin's with a set of strings
under the ordinary set, violins with
strings inside as well as out-:ide, violins with o. metal comb inside such
as you see in a tnusical-box.'violin-
with double posts, violins with fla.-
tops, violins without any openings,
and others with openings of strange
shapes. There is no end to the-"1
wild imaginings; but the violin of
the twentieth century remains inprin-
ciple the same as that of the Italian
"J>ut the real secret of tit. wonder
fill""tone of ancient violins lies in th1
varnish. The varnishing is, perhaps,
the most delicate part of violin-build-
iug. The varnish mu-'t possess a
great warmth of tone,.a fine transparent, and great solidity. It must be
neither too dry nor too soft. It should
have a beautiful, warm, amber color
approaching the purple orange, and
must be free from the shrill tint ot
the factory instruments. It is, to a
great extent, the varnish that gives to
tho old Italian violins their great
value. These pps-iess a richness of
tone compared to the orange-red cf
the most beautiful paintings of the
primitive painters of the Italian and
Flemish schools. Besides its beauty,
the varnish contributes to the sonorousness astonishing as this statement
may appear.
; "Every violin-maker who iB worthy
of the name is sure ho has a supremely good varnish, and every ma'i
guards his own secret. But Bomehow
they do not seem to be able lo find
out the secret of the varnish used by
tbe violiii-miiker-1 of centuries ago.
' "But it must not be overlooked thut
much depends on the bow. It was a
Frenchman—Tuort—who was to the
bow what Stradivari was to the violin.
Those old bowse were made of snake-
wood, ironwood, and several other
varieties. Bows become tempered—
'educated' with time and use. so thai
u man's bow b_ecomes almost a? pre-
ciouR to him as liis fiddle itself."

A Barrel of Balzac Letters.
'   The French  Academy has received
from the Comte de Lovenjoul a priceless collection of letters   written   by
Balzac.   The story of his acquisition
of  these  letters   is   as  follows:    One
day he saw a cobbler light his pipe
with a twisted letter.   The ink on the
paper   thereof    was" faded,  but   the
handwriting  interested  the  collector.
He  had   recognized   the  great  novelist's  script   and  straightway  bought,
the letter for a napoleon.    The cob-j
bier then informed the count that ho j
had bought a barrel of these letters;
ns   waste  paper,  which  he  used  for
wrapping shtjes when he was not lighting Wr pine.   And that is the history
of    thr.    Academy'!   Balzac .Letters.

Great Britain  Is Not Fond of Watch-
^    ing the Enemy.
Much twaddle is told concerning
British spies. Britons dislike the word
spyi.^t. goes rather against, the grain
when they hear oi Britishers, British
officers, engaged in spying.
Yet spies are as necessary to an
efficient modern navy or. army as battleships, fighting men, or guns. The
Russ<wapanese War was won by a
network of spies covering Siberia and
Manchuria. The Boer campaign would
have finished in half the time if we
had had a quarter the spies our now
good friends had. France spends
$750,000 a year on secret service; Russia a quarter of a million. Germany
has 25,000 spies in France alone, and
—well, thousands iu EnglancJ. &U
masking their oflicial duties by otherwise earning their living.
England is worse off as regards secret service than any other European
great power. Lord ChaHes Beresford
is a typical Briton, if ever there was
one, and to him We owe our Intelligence Department. We have to spy,
if only in self-defence.
* Look at the Borkum affair the other
day. An object lesson in fine-art spying.
The Board of Admirulty had to have
a plan in case Germany attacked us.
They deoided that Borkum Island,
most westerly- German territory, was
the place we should have to take tor
a base.
By means of her spies Germany at
once knew that. She started strengthening the forts. When British officers
arrived to see what was going oo, as
we are aware, they were arrested.
Everything, was known; they had it
all nicely wrapped up for us.     . •
Instead of being indignant for our
spying, how mildly we play the game
amuses some of our neighbors. Pic-
torially, they pull our leg. A cartoon
shows two somewhat "haw-haw" British officers as tourists, with, enormous
"War Office" notebooks. A foreign
officer holds open the door of a for^
ress, inviting:
"Only having a little holiday look
round! Well, won't you step insidfr--
and stay?"
Some ask why naval and military
officers are employed in spying, honorable and dangerous as it is. The
reason is because civilian spies make
a hash of military matters! Officers
know what to look for, and .where and
what it is when they see it. A few
years ago a civilian spy reported a
huge bastion to protect a coming naval dockyard. An officer went over,
and found the solid foundations of a
large • observatory.
Then-officers always keep faith.
Professional spies sell to the highest bidder. If there are two bidders,-
they sell to one, and spoof the other.
The.Lprds of the Admiralty were approached as to plans of Toulon, Best
and Cherbourg. Carefully checked by
officers, .these proved to be only builders' plains, supplied to contractors for
portions of the work.
Arguments against British officer
sp'es. are thejr look officers, and disfavor, tricks.   '
Three years ago a stalwart cyclist,
with camera, pottered about observing coast defences. "On your honor,
are you a British officer?" he was
j_sked; "I am," was the reply; and
he was promptly escorted out of the
About the same time a Well-dressed
gentleman presented to the sentinel
of Breakwater Fort, Portland, a card
from the admiral then in command.
Complying' with the. written request,
the visitor was shewn all over the
fort. Returned to. the admiral, the
card was found a forgery.
7 Formerly all. information obtained
was submitted direct to 8ecret Intelligence Service headquarters in London. 7 That was cumbrous; it gave
facts away. Consequently, a British
Government Intelligence Bureau was
established in a northern capital, and
there may be others. It is easier
working in such than amidst ..hordes
of foreign, spies, cat-like, watching
Spring Gardens and Pall-Mall. There
are overlooking houses in four great
capitals, whence observation is kept

'  ~ Wat It Stale?
While playing in a provincial pan-
tomine on one occasion, Mr. G. P.
--Huntleyi--.-the--English -actor, hod aa
amusing experience. The stage hands
organized a draw for a turkey, and
all the members of the company
bought.tickets. The turkey was won
by a limelight man, but as hia wife
did not know how to cook it, she
asked him to put it up apain. This
was done, and the next time it was
won by a,scene-shifter, who did not
like turkeys, so he followed the lime-
ight man's example, and organised
another raffle.
These draws went on for several
weeks, nnd they were always being
won by tbe stage hands, and financially supported by the. actors and actresses. At last, on the concluding
night of-the pantomime, Mr. Huntley
won the bird. By this time it had
cost h|m over a coupje of pounds,
and in telling the story he has said
"I took that unfortunate turkey out
of the theatre, but I did not take it
home; I thought it advisable to leave
it on the doorstep of a local sanitary
inspector I"
Tercentenary   of   Baronetcy.
Among the celebrations to be held
this year is the tercentenary of the
institution of baronetcy. This is a
rank which the country owes to the
first Stuart sovereign of Groat Britain,
but it is denied that it was created
in order to provide the British Solomon with, money.*
**Thc celebration is a function in
which the public generally will feel
very little interest, but on the other
'hund those most interested are preparing to celebrate the occasion witb
lifiltiuip solemnity, for the b.aroneU
are very proud of their order and have
recently taken steps to clear its ranks
of unlawful intruders. There ar3 over
1,200 baronets altogether, but even ii
they decided to have a. grand procession of the order to call public attention to their existence the public, in
the light of .recent events; it is to b«
feared, would be found more inclinod
to scoff than to admirt.
Curious   Adventure    of    Bull   Which
f    Climbed Castle Stairs.
One day recently people walking in
the neighborhood of Ballyadams Castle, Athy, glanced up at the historic
pile, stopped and rubbed their eyes,
then rubbed them again.
'Standing high up on the battlements of the fortress, calmly looking
out over the surrounding country,
was a sturdy bullock. There were,
various wagers as to how the animal,
reached its precarious position. That
it could climb up the ninety feet of
atone spiral stairs, broken and worn
in parts, seemed absolutely incredible.
It was found, however, that the
bullock had actuolly done so, tempted by an open dftorway, and the cool,
er air above. On reaching the top
the poor animal seemed to realise
its danger, and the big crowd thai
the strange sight attracted were not
a little apprehensive that it would
jump over the low balcopy to destruc.
tion below.
Several times it seemed 'inclined,
towards thia course; with forefeet on
to the low wall, it would gaze nervously and wistfully from his terrible
height, then retreat, make a circuit
of its narrow platform and repeat the
performance. At length the on-look-
ers determined to try and secure the
animal, although success seemed
very remote, and the effort certainly
was not unattended by risk to the
lives of the rescuers, half a dozen ot
whom went aloft to attempt to catch
the animal. A wild rash#of the
frightened brute might mean that the
party would be hurled from the para,
pet, only two or three feet away.
However,'after a good deal of skilful
manoeuvring, the rescuers induced
the bullock ; to get into the gallery,
and gradually it was forced down the )
narrow stairs, evctitullay getting to
terra firma safely. Ballyadams Castle,
the theatre of this occurrence, is one
of tho most interesting and historic,
and perhaps one of the best preserved
of the many of those old strongholds
with which ancient Leix is dotted. It
stands on the land of Dermot Hurley, Ballyadams, though the castle itself is in the control of the Board of
The  Little   Man  at the   Pillar.
Close to the famous clock in the
Cathedrul of Strassburg there is a little man in stone gazing up at the
angel's pillur, which supports the
south wing of the cathedral. Long ago
.the little man who is now sculptured
in stone stood there in 'flesh and
blood. He used to stare up at the
pillar with a criticising eye which
swept it from ton, to bottom and again
from bottom to top. Then he would
shake his head doubtfully each time.
It .happened once that a sculptor
passed the cathedral and saw .the little man looking up as if he did not
like the looks of the pillar.
"It seems to me that you are finding fault with the pillar, my good
fellow," said the' stonecutter, and the
little man nodded as if pleased to be
found out.
"Well, what do you think of it?
Speak out, my man," said the sculptor.
"The pillar is fine enough," the little man said slowly. "The figures on
it arfheautiful, but I fear that slender,
pillar cannot ho'.d up the heavy weight
much longer. Soon it will totter and
fall, and all will go to pieces."
An odd fancy, seized the stonecutter.
"You shall stay right where you are
always, gazing at the pillar until it
falls under tht? heavy vault."
And he-brought from his workshop
his hammer and chisel and made in
stone a figure' of the little man just
as he was, looking upward with a
knowing face and an important air.
And there this little figure in stone
stands to-day, awaiting the fall Of the
Ninety "Not Out."
"If I had my life to live again I
would, without, hesitation, be a Free
Church minister. There never was
such golden opportunity for'the man
with a Christian message as to-day."
Thus Dr. Guinness Rogers, the veteran preacher, orator, and politician,
who recently entered upon his ninety-
first year. Dr. Rogers has a ministerial record of sixty-five years and is
the - oldest - surviving es-ehairmah of
the Congregational Union. And, in
spite of his great age, his voice is
still as clear as.a bell,4and his energy
amazing. Needless to say, he has
some interesting, recollections, and
can look back to the time when there
was hardly a daily paper in the pro-,
vinces. In the house o' his father,
a minister, they had to be satisfied,
with a weekly journal which cost
fivepence a copy. To-day, as he once
remarked, porters pick out of an empty train more newspapers than were
taken in a whole town seventy years
A Daring Lady Aeronaut.
It is a curious fact that the Hon.
Mrs. Assheton HarbbW, who reoently
placed another long balloon voyage
to her credit by making an aerial
voyage to France, became a balloonist
by accident. In 1906 she went to see
some friends off who were making an
nsceht, and at the last moment they
suggested that she should* go with
them. ' She went, and returned to^arth
an enthusiastic aeronaut. Since then
she has made more thar. a hundred
voyages, owns her own balloon, and
has been entertained by the members
of the Aero Club in token of t'-eir appreciation of her pluck. She has made
four voyages across the Channel, and
on one occasion, when making a descent in Prance in a storm, was pitched out of the car as it bumped on the
ground. "I can claim, therefore,"
humorously remarks Mrs. Harbord,
"to be the only woman who has landed in France on her head."

Coronation Day in
the Schools
Education Dept. Suggests Appropriate Exercises
invited and might well include
patriotic songs and recitations, and
suitable addresses by trustees and
others. The National Anthem
should be sung and the school flag
saluted with due ceremony.
" It will be gratifying to the department if teachers who succeed
in carrying out such a programme
will send in a report stating the
number of pupils who took part
in the event."
In connection with the observance of Coronation Day in the
public schools of British Columbia
a circular letter has just been issued
to all the various*principals and
teachers, by the provincial minister
of education, Hon. Dr. Young,
directing their attention to the fact
that Coronation Day, Thursday,
June 22, has been officially declared a public holiday throughout the
British Empire.
"On that day," says the circular,
" King George V.. the immediate
successor to the peace loving King
Edward VJI., will be crowned at
Westminster Abbey, London, and
duly proclaimed the lawful ruler
of an empire so vast that it has
been described as one upon which
the sun never sets. All the schools
of the province will therefore be
closed on June 22nd, and on the
day following, Friday, as well, such
an important event in our history
may be grasped by every pupil in
the province, I beg to invite your
valuable co-operation in providing
a fitting celebration of Coronation
in our schools. It is suggested that
the forenoon of the previous day,
Wednesday, June 21, be devoted
to such exercises as will give a
proper appreciation of the great
historical ceremony to be performed
the following day at Westminster
Abbey, such as lessons of national
interest; a study of the greatness
of the empire ; its government and
leading institutions : the history of
Westminster Abbey and the
Coronation stone.
" The programme for the after-
r.oon should consist of exercises to
which parents and friends could be
There is a rumor that the Indian
reservation on the other side of the

Headquarters for the Economical Buyer
— from
und social reformers—have come- out
of journalisms than out of any other
calling or cla-jx, says a writer iu a
I.'jvi.loii paper discussing. Louis Tracy,
t.iiu novelist. One would not think so
from a review of the world's press.
Jouniali..in has been the Alma Mater
of nearly every well-known writer of
imiilcrn times, among .He ten fore-
iifist Nations of the earth, and this is
tlie excuse, if excuse were needed, for
tin- ineliisiun in this series, as.jour-
11111 ist.-.. of men who are known to the
world by their books, and are popularly styled novelist:?. We would not
have had Dickens the novelist if we
hud not had Dickens the journalist.
Though best known  by his books,
I/juis Tracy is a many-sided man. His
career  is  so  typical  of  the  class of
noveli.st occupying the van of literary
activity   in   this   first  decade  of   the
twentieth   century   that   it   deserves
some detailed attention.   Like the majority of his contemporaries, he took
his lirst degree in journalism. He joined the staff of The Northern Echo in
IS'3'1.   He was then a youngster of 21,'
with   a  hearty  relish   for hard  work
and sport, characteristics which usual-
I ly produce a clear-headed, eleansoul-
' ed   type  of  man.    His  earlier  years
belong to Yorkshire, with a collegiate
! passed   in  a  French   lycee.    In   the
! county of broad acres he imbibed the
| honest love of horses, dogs and guiii
j which   leaves  its   impress   on   every
j Hiip he has written.
M"fore lie t<jok to journalism as a
profession he practically divided his
tin-.' between field sports and the work
of the 1st Volunteer Battalion of the
Y'liksliire Regiment. At tlie age ef
eighteen he passed, with distinction,
the examination for an officer's certi-
iicat;', and would doubtless have obtained a commission had he remained
in the regiment. - This experience,
joined to subsequent Indian service in
tlie Allahabad Light Horse and. the
Punjab Light Horse, gave him tin
knowledge of military matters which
he lias used so well in such books as"
"The Final War," "The Invaders,"
anil "The Sirdar's Sabre." Here we
have the genesis of one side of a prolific intelligence.
Tn 1885 he was transferred from the
Northern Echo to the Soutii Wale;-
Daily News, where he became chief r,f
the staff. In 1889 he went to Indii
to edit The Morning Post, Allahabad,
and in 1892 he was driven back to
England by ill-health Next year he
was a^poU-M assistant editor of The
6un when that brilliant evening now--
paper was founded by -T. P. O'Connor. Between them, those two fairly-
established the signed leading article.
They substituted "I" for "we" in
the editorial column, and Tlie Sun's
teaders we're either signed "T.P." or
Hence, it- was Tracy who, one fine
morningi -fairly electrified politicians
by introducing a new phrase to the
English language that claimed th-'
right of labor to earn "a living wage."
Here, too, he wrote the stirring appeals for starving wives and children
of Yorkshire and Midland collier-.
which drew $40,000 from the pockets
of sympathetic Londoners, though
those same • long-suffering Cockneys
were paying $15 per ton for coal owing to the strike in the mining districts !
A year lut-er he was associated with
the purchase of The London Evening
News, but unfortunately, having made,
some money during the South Afri-
can-'toom, he "dabbled in mines,"
with the result .that, in 1839. he took
his first trip to the United States to
"see the hole" in Colorado in which
the bulk of his fortune was sunk.
That was a shrewd blow, then. But
how can a man describe city company
promoting and the va«arie.. of life iu
a. mining camp if he has not studied
these quaint topics at first hand? And.
indeed, how can a man write at ail
unless he has gone through the mil'
of experience'(
Meunwhilo Tracy had written "The
Final War," that remarkable and prophetic romance wh'icJi stirred Great
Britain ini<l luul it.- interest further
afield. It is odd that its phenomenal
success did not i-u-'.iuniife him to continue on the road _.•) iibv-.u.',y marked
out for him. Hut, like Huns Andersen, who wrote fairy-tal ■." m 'rely t..
pass the time, Tracy refu-ed to accept
his mission. Back he went to India
for three more years, and thence lo
America, ready and willing to do anything but produce novels, preferring
the fusciuatiou of living, practical
journalism. The man was a foredoomed wanderer over the fuee of the earth,
and he had to go east and west and
south and north ere he settled down
near the hull of things and began to
give public utterance to the thoughts
and impressions he had garnered from
many lands.
• A visitor to Whitby during twenty
years, Whitby, the little old-^orld
nook on the northeast coast of England, wliiuh he loves as did poor Du
Maurier, Irving, Hirkett Foster, and
many another brilliant member of the
artistic family, he pitched his tent
there for a decade. One says "tent"
advisedly, been use he journeys lar
a-field even yet when the mood takes
him, and though he has a house 'n
Surrey, Whitby often sees him. The
result of settling down to hard work
nt the desk revealed itself in a series of book grndi\ally but surely gaining in literary grace and range oi
vision. "The Revellers," "Rainbow
Island," "The Pillar of Light," to
mention a few, are novels of which
any author might be proud.
Curiously enough, Tracy is one of
the half-doien English novelists most
widely read in the United States and
