A letter was read from Mr.
Chas. Harvey, who stated that he
had made an examination of the
foundations of the Lakeview Hotel
and had found same in a very unsatisfactory and unsanitary state.
The. letter was referred to the
Health Committee and License
A letter was also read from the
Layritz Nursery Co., offering to
supply shade trees fbr the use of
the city from 25c. up.
Mr. R. B. Kerr, who was present,
said that some time ago he had
appeared before the council with
a request that the license of Mr.
J. B. Whitehead of tlie Pool Room
should be cut down. There had
then been some talk of a by-law
being 'introduced to regulate the
licenses in the city. He,Jtiad not
seen anythingcof it yet. and as it
was getting near to the time when
.the licenses wojiid"be; again payable, and there 'Was hardly time to
get a by-law through before; that
time, he would like to know what
the council would do in the mattter.
Mayor Sutherland said the council certainly: had, intended introducing a by-law, but in the pressure
of other matters it had evidently
been forgotten.
Aid. Jones suggested that the
committee had better at once look
into the trade license by-law as
there might be other changes
which would be needed.
Mr. Whitehead's-case, said Mr.
Kerr, was a special one, and he
would like to have something Bone
before it became necessary to pay
again. It was a hardship on Mr.
Whitehead that he should have to
pay $30 foe his license,
r. Aid. Jones pointed out that .the'
licenses did hot expire until July
15th, and there;was ample time to
get a by-law through before that
date. j
Mr. Mansell, representing the
Hamilton Mschinsry Co., waited
on the council.   He stated that he
had made with the parties from
whom they had purchased the last
lot of shade trees. Had any provision been made for supplying
the places of those which died.
He had noticed that quite a number
of those recently planted were not
coming out. Would the city be
expected to pay for these ?
Aid. Dalgleish said that the
understanding had been that the
city were not expected to pay for
trees which were not right.
It was likely, said the mayor, that
the money would be refunded for
trees which had died. Aid. Jones
suggested it might be advisable to
get the street sprinkler to water the
trees occasionally.
Aid. Dalgleish announced that
two or three teams had been busy
during the week with plow and
scraper on Wilson street which was
now in fairly passable shape.
Aid. Dalgleish also brought up
the matter of the weigh scales on
Bernard avenue. He would like
to see these removed before any
start was made at fixing up the
main street. They were quite an
eyesore in their present position.
He had taken the matter up with
the owners, Messrs. Crowley & Co.,
and Mr. Buckland had stated that
they were ready to remove them
if they had to. In that case, how-
evei, they, would not instal them in
•ny other place. Mr. Buckland
had suggested that the city -purchase the scales and place them in
a convenient place for the public
Coronation Day

second day of June, in the year of
our Lord 1911, has been fixed for

" Now, therefore know ye, that
we have--decided, by and with the
advice of our Privy Council for
Canada to appoint and set apart
Thursday, the said twenty-second
day of June, as a public holiday,
to be observed as a day of general

Botanical Survey of
the Province
By direction of Hon. Dr. Young
minister of education, a government
enterprise which'must have most
important scientific and educational results will be shortly initiated.
This project is .. complete botanical survey of the province and will
include the preparation of an herbarium for the provincial university at Point Grey. Mr. G. K. Mclean, C. E., landscape architect has
been placed in in charge of the
work by the Government. He will
have the valuable, assistance in the
field of Mr. John Davidson, formerly assistant professor of botany
in Aberdeen University, Scotland.
Pretty Wedding in the
Presbyterian Church
Kelowna Public School
had just sold a street sprinkler to
the Vernon council, and as he had
heard that the Kelowna council
were considering the purchase of
a sprinkler and other road machinery, he would like to submit prices
and particulars of his firm's manufactures. The matter was referred
to the Board of Works.
Referring again to the question
of shade trees for the city, the
mayor said they had some 30 acres
in the Park,, part of which were at
present useless. It might be a good
idea to utilize some of this land as
a nursery jbr shade trees. The
city might procure the trees quite
small find let them grow inthe
Park until large enough fojr use.
They had. plenty of water available
and the trees could be left in the
nursery rows until required. j
Aid. Cox agreed that this would
' be a good plan and might save the
city considerable expense in the
future. Shade trees, said the mayor
were different from fruit trees in
that they-required to be headed
high. Imported stock was often
fumigated so much that when -the
trees did start to grow, they often
started near the ground, and thus
quite a time was lost before they
could be allowed tb head out.
It was decided to refer the suggestion to the Park Committee ior
While on the question of shade
trees, said Aid. Cox, he would like
to ask what arrangement the city
Aid. Jories suggested that it might
be a good thing for one of the
livery and feed stables to acquire
them. . In most towns the livery
stable had such-a convenience.:
Some discussion took place on
the best location in which to place
the scales on their removal from
the main street. A resolution was
passed that the owners be requested to remove them, the question of
their disposal being left over for
the present.
A. report was passed from the
city assessor on the extension of
St. Paul street through to Bernard
Ave., and through the south 81 feet
ofblock'38 map 362. The .estimated cost of the extension was
$3,000. „
Formal resolutions were then
passed "that the council deem it
desirable to make the above extension by way of Local Improvement, and that the extension be
advertised as required. .„ w __:
~ Aid. Copeland reported that the
committee had now got -the Park
pretty well cleaned up. They had
burnt over all the sloughs and
made improvments. It was not
necessary to spend much more
money this year except in cutting
the grass. He suggested that the
council visit the park to inspect
the work which had been done.
The meeting then adjourned until Saturday, June 10th.

the bridegroom acted as best man.
The church was handsomely decorated with ferns and white flowers
and a full choir under the leadership of Mr. J. N. Thompson were
present, with Mrs. F. Davis at the
Precisely at 2 o'clock, the bride
who was prettily, attired in cream
satin with pearl trimmings, and
lace scarf, entered the church on
the arm of her father, the organ
meanwhile pealing forth the strains
of Mendelssohn's 'Wedding March*
The choir then sang " The Voice
that Breathed O'er Eden," the congregation standing meanwhile.
The knot was tied ■ by ' the Rev.
A. W. K Herdman after the ritual
of the church of Scotland.
After the benediction, a handsome Bible was presented by the
clerk of th* session in commemoration of this being the first wedding
to take place in the. new church,
and appropriately referred to by
the pastor.
A move was then made to the
vestry where the signing of the
papers took place.

Big Sawmill Fire
at Revelstoke
The    Bowman   Lnmber  Company's plant and mill at Revelstoke,
together with between 600,000 and
700,000 feet of storage logs went
up in smoke last Tuesday night in
one of the most spectacular fires
that ever visited the pity.   Strenuous efforts  were-made to  keep
the fire from spreading among the
logs and dry timber, which were
piled up around the building,  but
despite all attempts fires started to
right and left, and while the firemen were busy at these the flames
gained such headway among the
logs which were piled  thirty  or
forty feet high, that it was impossible to quench them.
The mill and plant are valued at
from $40,000 to $50,000, and employed a.force of between fifty and
sixty men, as well as a large num-,
ber of cruisers who will be temporarily thrown out of employment
Whether the Dominion Sawmills &
Lumber Co., Ltd., which recently
absorbed the Bowman Lumber Co.
will rebuild is a. question. The
damage is said to be fully covered ~
by insurance.

Wonderful  Changes   Predicted  By  an
Englishman  of  Note.

will supply heat. Liquid air will keep
up refrigeration in every larder. In
addition to heat' radiators there will
be cold radiators, which, will enable
each house to! be kept at the required
Such is the beginning of some most
interesting predictions concerning our
future .that were recently made by Eugene Hanard at the international town
planning conference held in London,
Eng. Mi. Hanard'a forecast of what
the ideal city of the coming years will
be like is well worth reading, even
though one may be a trifle skeptical
concerning some of the great things
"By this power," he declares, referring to control of temperature in
our dwellings, "it will be possible to
provide in each house one or more
health chambers closed by close fitting double windows and doors in
which the overworked occupant on
his return from town will find all the
hygienic conditions which now he can
obtain only by taking an annual holiday.
"Glass verandas of various shapes
joined together and with covered footpaths, according to standard models,
will shelter pedestrians against rain,
and the normal height of buildings
•»will be exactly the width, of the street.
The roofs of houses will be platforms
upon which small flower beds and verdant shrubberies could be laid out, as
they would be the landing stages for
"When this progress shall have been
accomplished tlie physiognomy of
towns will be changed. All .terrace!
will have become landing stages for
flying automobiles. Aviators will be
able to fly from one terrace to another,' starting and landing as they please.
The natural consequence of this new
state of things will be that each

A Thirst For the" West.
Tha* the glamor of the "Wild "West"
still sways the youthful mind is borne
out by a remarkable story told at Bristol oae day lately when Thomas Burt,
seventeen, who said he was from Lon:

wandering with a boy of fifteen. A
police officer said lie fouud the lads
wearing spurs, one having his.fixed,
upside down. They said • they were
horse trainers, und were going for two
horses they had bought. Eaoh had
an.ftirgun, revolver in case, bowie
knife, masks, und a complete outfit of

They said they were going out to the
Wild We&t and had equipped themselves with money stolen in .London.

Modern   Coiffures    Not   In-  It   With
t   Those Once  Popular.
When it comes to hair-raising effects the coiffures of our present day
—no joke intended—are difficult to
beat. At.least that's what the average man hinks when in the theatre
or music hall his astonished and bewildered eyes take in the "effects" on
all sides of him. Nothing, he would
swear, ever looked more wonderfully
complicated and in many cases more
unbecoming than the queer arrangement of tresses in which many a woman takes pride. But this is not the
only age of queer coiffures. According to Dardin, when the wife of
Charles VI., of France, put on a two-
horned head-dress "the women of the
time vied with each other as to who
should wear the most handsome head-
gear peaked like a steeple, and tho
tallest horns." On the Paris Opera
House being burned down in 1760,
the feminine residents of the city
would hear of nothing in coiffures except "burned opera house." The
comet of 1773 gave its name to a headdress of flaminp colored ribbons. The
"Iphigenia coiffure"—"a wreath of
flowers surmounted by a silver cres-
eent, with a long white veil flowing
behind,'" was suggested by a singer
who wore the costume at a performance of Ghieck's Iphijrenie en Aulide.
A swallow, pursued by a hawk, fell
to the ground on« day on a Pont
Neuf, and straightaway an enterprising modiste launched "the swallow
coiffure." The visit of a Chinaman
'to Paris brought in an era of pointed
shoes and hair arranged "a la Chtn-
oise"; the arrival of an unwieldly
pachyderm fluttered the whole French
capital witl) a mania for caps "a
Felephant" or "an rhinoceros." Under Marie Antoinette -the hair was
dressed "butterfly fashion." or the
ladies affected such coiffures as
"spaniel's ears," "milk-sop," "cabriolet," "mad dog," or "sportsman in
the bush." In the revolutionary
period advanced French women wore
bonnets of "tlie three orders," "Bas-
tile" bonnets, and "6oiffures a la
citoyenne." Since the revolution the
head dresses of women have gone
through a vari»ty of changes—from
the "chapeau empire" and the Parisienne of 1814—the latter an immense
bonnet thrown forward and upward
like a coal seiittl'_—to t!r. voluminous
bonnets of the restoration and the
hooded bonnets of 1848; from the
capacious yet graceful Gainsborough
to the tiny toque scarcely visible on
a lady's head; from the lace-trimmed
bonnets of two generations ago to the
veil-hung round hats of our own time.
Take Their Art Seriously.
"With a Paris courtourier the creation of every new garment is an inspiration. It is not a mere cutting
and slashing away with scissors, or
the reproduction of a model-that has
served for a hundred other worn"!..
Every new dress is an individunl
thing. The French love their art,
and they make that their principal
object in life. It is the same with
the French milliner?. They nre not
satisfied that their names should be
associated with any old thing; it
must please them before they even
begin to consider whether it will
please their customers. When a
French milliner is designing a new
hat and finds that it won't go right,
do you know what she does? She
puts it into what she calls the observation room," and leaves it there
for a while. Then she devotes her
attention to something else, and tries
to forget the hat she has been working on. But from time to time she
goes back and observes it, until one
day there comes a flash of inspiration,
and—hey, presto!—the one thing that
was "needed to make a perfect creation has been found.
Every Virtue Has Its Vice.
Out of desire to better our condition comes the greed of wealth and
the hoggishness of the millionaire.
Out of sex love comes lust; out of
instinct of self-preservation comes
base selfishness; the feeling of self-
respect pushed a little too far becomes
pride and vain glory; faith degenerates into credulity, worship into idolatry, deference into fawning, firmness
into hardness of heart, self-reliance
into arrogance. The danger that
threatens repose is stagnation; that
threatens industry, greed; that
threatens thrift, avarice; that threatens power, tyranny. Everywhere ar©
things linked together. Every virtue
has its vice, every good has its ill,
every sweet has its bitter, and the
bitter is often the best medicine.
Changed His Position.
In a certain police court an exuberant footballer of the town was brought
up on a charge of riotous conduct.
The magistrate inquired what position the defendant held. "He'b a professional football player, your worship," said counsel. "He playB outside right for his. team." "Yes—ah.
He does, does he," said the magistrate. "Well, then, wc must change
his position. He'll be left inside for
the next month!"
And That's Some Oold.
An apartment-house dweller claims
that the janitor of the building in
which he lives is the meanest janitor

steam during the day," said the complainant, "and at night the conditions
are simply awful. Why, I frequently
wake up and hear my wife's teeth
chattering on the bureau."

The New and Old Geology.
In Its early history geology presented two schools—one Insisting on a doctrine of "catastrophes," the other on
a doctrine of "uniformity." The former regarded the changes which have
manifestly taken place ln our planet
as having occurred at epochs abruptly,
while the other school, reposing on
th a great principle of the invariability
of tbe laws of nature, Insisted that affairs had always gone on ln the same
way as they do now. It is hardly
necessary to say that tbe latter theory
bas driven the old theory of catastrophe completely from the field.—New

The fewer desires the more peac*.—
The Board of License Commissioners in British Columbia has decided to exclude all women from
saloon premises and hotel bars.
This is wise and right, because the
bar degrades women and opens
the door to their destruction. It is,
however, equally true that the bar
degrades men as well women,
and opens the door to their destruction. What will the advocates
of liberty say about such legislation ? Ought not women to have
rights as well as men ? Is their liberty not as sacred as that of their
brother ?
What have good men to say
about this discrimination ? Is it
not as important to save men from
ruin as it is to save women ? If
women ought to be kept out of
bars, ought not men to be kept out
as well ? We have now legislation
prohibiting the sale of liquor to Indians, prohibiting the sale of liquor
to drunkards, prohibiting the sale
of liquor to minors, keeping women
out of bars, prohibiting the sale of
liquor on many days, and nights,
and evenings, and mornings.and in
many places, for the simple reason
that under these conditions the
sale of liquor does harm. Every
man possessed of common sense
knows that under other conditions
the same business does harm. Is
it not as wrong to degrade and destroy those who are strong as it is
to degrade and destroy those who
are weaker ? Is it not as wicked
to do this destroying and degrading at 6 o'clock on Saturday evening, as it is to do it at 8 o'clock on
Saturday evening ?
Would it not be wiser, better and
more effective, to abolish the bars
altogether? The Victoria 'Daily
'Uimcs gives the following information concerning the new British
Columbia regulation:
. The question of women and saloons was brought before the License Commissioners by a letter
from Judge Forin, who stated that
a rancher from Thrums had come
to him with a complaint that his
daughter, two men and another
girl had been frequenting a saloon
and hotel and were supplied with
intoxicating liquors. At the saloon
said the letter, the writer was informed the girls became upon one
occasion intoxicated and there,
with their companions, acted in an
unwomanly manner. Judge Forin
said that he saw no legal remedy,
but expressed the.opinion that he
had in all probability averted tragedy by persuading the irate father
from harming one of the men in
question, whom he, the father
claimed was responsible for his
daughter's downfall. He asked
that an investigation be made by
the commissioners into the matter.
A letter from C. W. Young, chief
of police, giving the facts of the
case, was also read. The chief reported that the occurence complained of at the saloon took place
about 12:25 on the morning of
April 14. Constables Reid and
McLeod saw the two girls and their
companions in a box at the saloon.
They were talking and laughing in
aloud manner. At 1:30 one of
the girls was taken sick and was
conveyed to the kitchen. She was
taken to her home from the hotel
by the police. The other girl also
left with her companion.
The mayor said that as far as the
hotel was concerned, one of the
girls, not the daughter of the
Thrums rancher, was employed
there and that under the law, in
common with any other man or
woman, had a perfect right to obtain either food or drink. With
regard to the saloon, the proprietors of that place had recently
equipped their kitchen and fitted
up two boxes for the use of patrons
requiring a light lunch, which they
supplied. There was nothing illegal
in either men or women being
served in these boxes with food or
drink though it had always been
understood in the citv that no
women were allowed actually in
the bars. In the case under notice
the parties had not gone into the
bar but into a box which was quite
apart from the bar-room and entered by a separate door.
As a means of preventing an
occurence of similar nature in
in future he suggested that the
board make a regulation that no
woman should be allowed on any
saloon premises. Neither the hotel nor the saloon had broken any
law, repeated the mayor, but it was
necessary to take some step as that
which he advocated. He had
thought at fiist that it would be a
good plan to prohibit boxes, but
such a course would work a hardship on certain places and he
thought that such a course should
only be taken if further trouble oc-
A resolution to exclude all
women from saloon premises and
from hotel bars was passed.

The Oyster's Beard, the Woodpecker'*
Tongue, the Dragonfly's Digestion.
"The way some creatures eat ia certainly enough to interest even a more
curious person than I," said the man
who likes to talk about nature and
tlie manners and customs of nature's
creatures. "For instance, what do you
think of a thing that eats with its
whiskers?" f
"I am speaking of the oyster, and
my reference to its whiBkers is simply
jocular, although I in fact mean its
beard. The oyster eats with its beard.
The beard of tKe oyster, so called, is
really its mouth, its jaws, its teeth,
its paJate.
"You and I wouldn't care to have
sach a combination of gustatory activity in our beard, but the oyster gets a
good deal of enjoyment out of life with
that comprehensive attachment just
the same. I have a psychological
friend who declares that even death is
a pleasure to the oyster; that parting
with life between the bon vivnnt'.-
toeth, it expires in ecstacy. I hope
my friend is right. If he is 1 will
give mortuary delight to a, dozen
Lyuchhavens this evening, if 1 can
get them.
"Then consider tlie woodpecker.
Tap, tap, tap, he says, clinging to the
stem of the tree. His, he says, turning his ear to the bark and listening.
Ha, ha, Mr. Grub! He heurs you foolishly moving at the sound of his tap.
Katty-te-tap! Tatty-te-tap! R-r-r-r-rap!
E-r-r-r-rap! Like a drum beating in
the morning.
"Straight to the mark, true as drill
or augur, goes that unerring beak.
Quicker than either drill or augur it
taps the spot it is aimed for.
"But the straight, sharp beak eau
never follow ihe frighten.J grub in
its eccentric tunnelling. It doesn't
have to. The woodpecker has a tongue,
long, round, flexible, sensitive and
barbed like a Fijian's sj>ear. A thrust
of it at the larvae trail, a transfixed
grub—« morsel for the crimson-crowned bird's palate, well earned and never missed.
"Whatever it may be that the lobster and the crab, rapacious, never
dainty, are eating, they always see
something else that they want and
ean't wait until they have masticated
the first before attacking the second.
But they don't give up the first, not
by any manner of means.
"Nature humoring this rapacious
bent, has fitted the lobster and the
crab with teeth in their stomach, an 1
they .swallow their half masticated
food and finish the chewing procuss
with their stomachs, while they ssize
and chew the other thins that ha-? attracted then i. Lobster? nnd crabs
have no teeth in their mouths. They
cnew with tiieir c;;i.\s wnal they have
time to, and hand the unfinished job
down to their stomachs to do the rest
of the chewing.
"The grasshopper i-n't a clii-.ken, although it lays eggs, but it has a gizzard as a chicken has, except that the
grasshopper's gizzard has teeth, sharp,
horny teeth.
"The butterfly has a delicate and
beautiful little pump inside of itself,
with which it pumps neotar from the
flowers. The dragon fly's appetite is
never satisfied, although that amazing
insect, with its 50,000 microscopic
eyes, eats continuously from daylight
until dark, capturing thousands upon
thousands of flies aud other noxious
insects during the day. But the digestive apparatus of the dragonfly is such
that all it takes into its long stomach
is digested instantly.
"The patient ox and it3 sweet-
breathed kind crop the grass all day,
but never know they have been eating
until the food they have bolted has
passed leisurely through three stomachs and is fired back at them f.om
a fourth one in the shape of the familiar cud, which they chew and chew,
standing in the shade, pondering and
whisking flies or humped up in the
barnyard, shedding snow.
"Yes, we are queer, queer creatures,
all of us, brute and human. And
many of us are queerest when we cat."
A Motor-cycle Parade.
The Curbstone club members were
discussing the speed of motor-cycles
when the ancient carpenter, who had
just come in, joined in the conversation.
'"'".•liking about motor-cycles,' he
said, "I took a count of them in front
,,1 my house itic other evening.
"I "noticed that a continual string
of them seemed to be coming by the
place, so I started in counting.
"By the time 1 had reached 987 I
made a peculiar discovery. I happened to notice by a mark of the tire of
the wheel that it was the same motorcycle that I had been tallying.
"The rider went so fast round and
round the block that I mistook him
for a parade."
Setting Her Right.
On one of the corners of a busy
thoroughfare sat nn old man blind
und minus one leg. A sympathetic
lady who was passing stopped and
gazed at him in pity.
Finally she approached him and began asking him questions. She asked
him if he were married, how many
children he had, where he had worked
last, how he had met with the accident that had incapacitated him for
work and a thousand other questions.
Finally the unfortunate one beennie
peevish. "Madam," he exclaimed
harshly, "you may think this is an
information bureau. It is not. It is
a collecting agency."

In Italy's Mountainous Districts Carry
Everything on Their Heads.
In Italy, as a most of the old world
countries, the men even in the humblest classes will not carry a load of
any kind if it is possible to get out of
it. For that reason the burden-bearing
is done by the patient, obstinate and
much abused donkey and the women.
In the interior of Italy, where the
plains are, and in Venice and about
the famous lake region all burdens are
carried on the back, in long baskete
like those used by tlie German peasants. These are supported on the
shoulders by loops through which the
arms  are thrust.
In the mountainous district of Italy,
near the coast, the women carry
everything imaginable on their heads,
and they arc straight and supple, with
n wonderfully free and easy carriage.
The result of carrying loads on their
heads, even from childhood, is a decided contrast to the women burden bearers, where baskets are used. The latter women are bent or round shouldered. ■*
In the mountains the women use a
piece of woollen or cotton cloth, generally a laree neckerchief, which is
folded diagonally and twisted into a
round, soft ball. They wind this into
a round mat and place it on top of
the head. On this they carry anything
from an empty basket or a kettle uf
water to large pieces of furniture. An
interesting sight is a woman trudging
homeward at night after a long muscle-trying day's work of chopping
wood or felling trees in the forest, her
axe in one hand and with the other
carefully balancing on her head a
good-sized tree, the branches of which
are dragging behind on the ground.
In the tiny little villages parched
high up in the mountains and reached only by a narrow, rough cobbled

Would Have Done For Him.
The lady in the offside corner seat
of the tram ear possessed a truculent
air  and a discolored eye.
"Funny thing any one can't take a
penny ride without everybody glarin'
at 'em," she remarked, fixing a small
gentleman weariug gray side-whiskers
and a somewhat ru»ty top hat witb
her normal opr7. The small gentleman suddenly became interested in a
soap .advertisement.
"If any one can't 'ave a black eye
without Tom, Dick and 'Arry askin'
questions things a.e comin' to a pretty
pass," continued the lady!
Silence, allied with soap advertisement study, though eminently discreet, was ineffective.
"You, I'm a tukin' to." The lady
prodded the small gentleman's knee
with her umbrella. "Bin settin' there
this last ten minutes, you 'ave, won-
derin' if my 'iisban' give it to m^.
If it'll ease yer mind, he did. Is
t.ie're an>i_iing else?"
"Madam," the small gentleman
commenced, "had I been your husband"	
"I should a-got off at the cemetery
with a wreath "instead o' goin' on ter
the 'orsnital with a visitor's ticket,"
snapped* the lady, "and the wreath
wouldn't a-been expensive neither."
Poison Bearers for War.
Krupps, the German gun manufacturers, are always on the lookout for
i"ventio-s and improvements in anything in their line. Their most recent
experiments Have been with a new
protective device commonly known by
the inelegant name of "stinkpots." It
is a large metal globe filled with a
powder which expands into a deadly-
gas when the shell strikes. Each sh-dl
carries 160 pounds of powder. The
g;uoe is jiioUiiieu on a metal bar,
which fits into tlie barrel of a small
gun and is attached in such a fashion
that when the powder discharge is
made the bar is jolted loose from tha
globe und the poi^m-bearer goes hurtling through tiie air alone.
When the gun is pointed at an angle
of 45 degrees the shell carries 1 500
feet. This is relatively a short distance, but the weapon is intended for
trench defence only, and when thus
applied will prove most effective.
A New Difficulty.
A young cotton worker and his wile
had been married only a few months',,
but it was quite apparent to the wife
that her husband s affection for her
was on the wane. John developed a
tendency to stay out lute at night,
and now it was early morning, when
his wife heard u violent knocking at
tne door, "\.iu. . tlu-rer" asked "lit!
from the bedroom window. "It's me,-'
replied John meekly. "I've just come
from the meeting. We huve bee.i
considering the present strike." "Oh,
have you? Well, you can sit on the
doorstep and consider the prcs.-nt lockout!" was the retort.
Sound   Proof  Booths.
A German engineer has invented a
means of shuttins out sound from the
telephone booth. lie iines the walls of
the booth with ._.otullic plates, sucii
as tin, aluminum, etc. This lining
hus oroved so enec-tual that tie inventor advises architects to use it on
the inside wall of homes. The system
has given such good results that it
has been adopted by the telephone administration of Berlin.

A   Habit  Once  Condemned   Is  Shown
">   to Have Some Merit.
"1 onca had a prejudice against a
habit indulged in by some otherwise
sensible people—the hab-; of putting
things in books," says the writer of a
charming article in The Atlantic
Mon'.hiy. "1 mean pressed flowers,
Christmas cards, locks of hair, kodak
pictures, and all such tokens and
trinkets. I could give logical reasons
for my disapproval.
"Thus 1 argued, and like Horatio,
did in part believe. But now I come
as a sinner to repentance. It seems
to me that I shall not merely look
with approval upon the habit I formerly disliked, but that I myseli shall
some day go to my treasure-boxes and
transfer their precious contents to
books 1 may never again open.
"My change of heart came in this
wise. A dear friend, dying, bequeathed to me her small library. I wondered when I first touched the volumes
if I should ever be able to regard them
as mere books, or to read the gayest
of them without sadness. The loved
name was written in a delicate, old-
fashioned hand on every inside ccver.
liut sull more sadly remindful were
the mementoes and keepsakes lying
between the pages; for my friend had
put tilings in books. In nearly every
volume l found pressed flowers, re-
niembraiiee cards, or the notes and
questions of the student and teacher,
ail rumiudii _• me of the friend who
was gone. And yet, when I came upon pieces of late, soft curls of a
baby's hair, strips of yellow ribbon—
her iu von te color—1 telt that 1 could
hear her speak and see her smile
again. 1 welcomed all the little keepsakes; for in no other way would my
friend have left me so much of herself.
"One evening 1 took from among
these gift books the translation of the
Iliad, wishing to rest my mind and
perhaps iearn a new thing. Idly turning the leaves, 1 dislodged two folded
letters, slightly yellowed by time. I
opened them—and what to me then
were the grievous woes of heroes, the
schemes of gods and goddesses?"
' The two letters were from A. Bron-
son .-\lcott and John G. Whittier, the
"No more of Hector and Achilles
that evening! Here was metal more
attractive. All my arguments against
the habit of putting things in books
were doubly proved—and then forgotten. What matter if my attention was
distracted, and poor old Homer was
neglected. What matter if the two letters had been lost in the Iliad for
perhaps a quarter of a century? It
was not for me to object on that
score, since there the letters lay, in
my hands. 1 saw that I could not
maintain my miserable little prejudice airainst a habit capable of bringing me such delight. 1 was ready to
accept the whole system; nay, even to
adopt it. Perhaps an unconditional
surrender was not required as my pen-
atuc; I admit it was very illogical, for
probably I shall never again find such
jare treasures between the leaves of
aiiv book. But there is a blessed state
,,f "mind when one throws logic to the
wind and gives allegiance to a cause
right from the heart; and I was in
that state of mind.
"Yet in s;>ite of my own conversion
I shall attempt no proselytising. This
habit of putting things in books is
admirable only in those who practice
it unconsciously and indiscriminately.
Commonness would rob it of all its
delicacy and charm. I would not
wish to see it become a fad, or the
cornerstone of a sect. But for me there
is no escape. The message is written,
'Enough has been said; the thing is
to do.' I have just found twojour-
leat clovers, and I go to place one of
them in my newest copy of "Hamlet"
and the other in the Iliad, with the
two  fine  old letters."

Chew Tea In 81am.
In Siam they chew tea in place of
tobacco. They call it mieng. It is in
ii plug, like chewing tobacco, and has
a villainous s'nell, due to the fermentation it has undergone. The tea
that the Siamese emphjy for chewing purposes is a very coarse, rank
plant. It is gathered like ordinary
tea, but.the lenves, after being compressed into plugs, are buried for 16
days. They ferment during burial
and on their resurrection are very,
very fragrant, indeed. The Siamese
boatmen chew tea, the 'rickshaw men
chew it and even the litterateurs
chew it. They say it makes tbem
work better. •

The provincial inspector of fruit
pests, Mr. Thos. Cunningham, is
making the most energetic efforts
not only to keep orchard diseases
and pests from entering the province, but also to eradicate those
which have already risen to vex
the soul of the British Columbia
fruit grower. The importance of
clean orchards is of course an elementary principle in fruil culture,
and the necessity for thorough
spraying, though a little more
preached about than practiced, is
coming to be regarded as a sine qua
non in the production of high grade
fruit, free from blemish. And the
all powerful reason for its general
adoption is that it means dollars,
to the grower. On any orchard,
the difference in returns from a
strictly number one crop, and one
showing a large percentage of culls,
is so enormous that it needs no
other argument to persuade the
grower to spray.
But to be effective spraying calls
for no  inconsiderable  knowledge
of the nature of plant diseases and
the life histories of fruit pests.     In
summer spraying  especially,   time
is an important factor in   the   successful combatting of some of  the
insects   which   attack    the    trees.
These may pass in   a  few  weeks
through the  successive  stages   of
grub, pupa,  and   moth,   and   war
must be waged upon it at its  most
vulnerable period.    This  is   often
a matter only of a few   days,   and
to spray at any other  time   would
be a waste of energy and material.
The best  time   and   manner  of
spraying, the strength of spray used
etc., can   only  be   determined  by
careful and   tedious  experiments.
But experiment is costly for the individual farmer.    He should therefore watch   with   interest  the   experiments which are being conducted in the district under the authority of Mr. Cunningham.    Mr. S. M.
Moulton and Mr. Coupland brought
in last week a power spray outfit
which will be in operation here for
some five or six weeks. Tlie outfit
will be run in the orchards of 1.
W. Stirling, S. C. Cosens, Cameron's, and others. The work is
purely of an experimental nature,
and careful records will be kept of
every detail connected with the
operation. Later on the results
will be observed and the effect of
applications at different times and
of different strengths will be noted.
Mr. Moulton is leaving this week
for Salmon Arm where he will install a similar plant, but Mr. Coup-
land who is an orchardist of considerable experience in the Western States will remain in charge,
and will, we understand, be pleased
to receive a visit from anyone interested. It is hoped to make the
occasion educational in manj' ways
and there are few who could not
learn something of up - to - date
spraying methods from such a
B. C. Fruit Exhibited in
Canada Only
No Fruit for Old Country this
With the announcement of the
appointment of Mr. W. J. Brandrith
as exhibition commissioner for
British Columbia during the forthcoming season, confirmation is obtained of the report given circulation some few weeks ago that it is
the intention of the provincial
government this year to confine its
exhibition activities to the Dominion of Canada, not being officially
represented at the Old Country
shows of 1911, although numerous
boards of trade and district and cooperative fruitgrowers' associations
will privately and semi-officially
uphold the high prestige obtained
by British Columbia at the English
and Scottish fruit shows of the past
few years.
The principal places at which
British Columbia will this season
be represented by comprehensive
fruit exhibits are Winnipeg, the
scene of the Canadian Industrial
Exhibition to be held July 12-22 ;
Brandon, the Inter-Provincial Fair
centre, July 24-29 ; Regina, where
the Dominion   and   Saskatchewan
Provincial Fair is to be held from
August 1 to 12; Edmonton, the
Edmonton Exhibition Association's
display centre, August 15-20; London, Ontario, September 8-16;
and Toronto, for the Canadian
National Exhibition, extending from
August 26 to September 12. This
latter is everywhere admitted to be
now the largest fixed exhibition
attraction of all America, a record
attendance having been scored last
season when 1,250,000' persons
passed through the turnstiles.
The new exhibition commissioner
who acted as assistant last season
to Commissioner Bullock-Webster,
is now completing arrangements]
with all the leading fruitgrowers
throughout the province for daily
shipments of the finest selected
British Columbia fruits in their
season to the various exhibition
centres above named. With the-e
constantly arriving accessions to
the permanent exhibit, the commissioner will be in a position to
always have the British Columbia
display fresh and attractive, building up its quality daily as any
portion begins to show signs of j
staleness or deterioration. In addition to the fresh fruit, which will
of course be specialised, the display for these eastern exhibitions
will include a large collection of
bottled fruits and also of British
Columbia's forest wealth.
The   three   most  important   exhibition centres on the list for 191 1 j
are    Winnipeg,    Regina,   and   of j
course, the great Canadian Nationa'
Exhibition at Toronto.

Queen Mary's crown has just
been completed. It is according
to her own design with an elegant
lace - like tracery of holly in
diamonds, the Kohinoor being set
inthe centre. The crown weighs
nineteen ounces, the Queen, having
insisted that it should not exceed
the weight of an ordinary hat. It
will be used only at the coronation.
After that ceremony the gems will
be dismounted and used in separate

The single tax. idea promulgated
by Henry George, in so far as it
applies to the exemption of im-
improvements from taxation, has
been adopted by the New Westminster city council; arid will be
enforced this year. This decision
will result in an increased tax on
land in order to meet the estimated
expenditures for the year. As a
consequence the tax rate has been
fixed at 30 mills gross or 25 mills
net on land, only. Last year, and
for many years previous,.the tax
rate\ of the city was 24 mills on the
dollar gjrogs and 20 . mills, net
Improvements up to a certain proportion were taxed, however.
This .year the rate will be 30 mills,
but a discount equal to 5 mills on
the dollar will be given if the taxes
are paid before August I. The
exemption of improvements from
taxation will, it is believed, stimulate
building the city and discourage
the holding of unimproved property
for speculation purposes.
New Westminster was horrified
last Saturday by a brutal murder

The first day of the staking of
the census brought to light an error
in schedule seven which gave rise
to difficulties both' locally and all
over the Dominion. The mistake
is one made in the census office

Then Do Some Thinking and Figuring
and See How Far From Your Guest
You Come and Incidentally Learn
How Many Folks You Don't Know.
Did you ever have tho experience ol
walking dowa Mulu street with u man
who is running for office? All the time
he is bowing.right, und left to people
you meet Several limes In a block he
will slop to shake hands wilh au acquaintance.
"You seem to kuow every oue," you
say to him almost enviously.
•'That's right." he replies, not without some pride. "I guess 1 do know
everybody worth knowing."
Yet how many people does he know?
flow many people do you know yourself? Did you ever try to figure it out?
What proportion of the people in the
.'nited States do you know? Certainly
you don't know the ouu-hu'udreth part
of them. Even the president of the
United States doesn't and couldn't if
he kept traveling all the time, making
a host of new acquaintances every day.
To know the one-hundredth part of
the people In this country would be to
know in the neighborhood of a million
persons. No; it is perfectly safe to say
th:.I there is no person in the whole
world that knows a million other persons wall enough to call each of them
by name. Think what a million means!
Suppose you said the names of all tbe
people you know as fast as you could.
If you could enunciate twenty names
a minute you would be doing mnrvel-
onsly well. Even at that rate, working
steadily eight hours a day, it would
take you nearly four mouths just to
name the people you know There isn't
n memory in existence that would hold
n million names.
Well, do you suppose you know a
hundred thousand? Let's see; that
would be about one-fifth of the population of Rhode island. Imagine your:
tself sitting in the railroad- station at
Providence watching the people corne
through. No; that is hardly a fair
test, for unless you live in Providence |
you do not know as many people there'
as In the city in which you live. Sit
in your own railway station and count
I lie people coming through. No matter
how well known you are or how many
people you know, you cannot help but
lie impressed with the fact of how
many people there are that you do not
know. If you kuow one in u hundred
persons you kuow far more than the
Let us try to get at it in another
way. You make on the average, say,
two new acquaintances a week. Of
centre there are weeks and weeks that
you make no new acquaintances at alL
and then there are times, such as pic-
uic week and vacation week aud
church fair week, when you meet a
lot of people, so that two a week is a
fair average. You have been meeting
people, say. for twenty-five years.
That's 2.500, Isn't It?
Is it possible that you kuow only
2,500 people? You thought the number would be far more than that?
But hold on. You don't know nearly
that many. There are lots and lota
of people whom you knew twenty
years ago that yon don't know now.
You cannot even remember their
names or what they looked like.
Just sit down and try to remember
the names of all the boys and girls
that were in (he same room in the
public school with you. You cannot
remember half of them or a third of
them or a fifth of them. It is safe to
say that of every two persons you
met in all your life you have forgotten
one. The chances ore that the number of people you know by name is
nearer 1,000 than it is 2,000.
Of course a preacher with a thousand members lu his church Is expected "to know them all by name. But
all the same you will find bim saying
to bis wife:
"My dear, who was that young lady
who spoke to us just know?"
It Is business, too, for a merchant to
"remember all of bis thoasand customers, but very few merchants are able to
do It. Possibly some of the politicians
and public lecturers may know a cou-
ple of thousand persons by nanie, but
very few other persons know tbat
many.        .m
If this estimate seems too low it Is
easily disproved. All you have to do
Is to take pencil and paper and begin
putting down the names of your acquaintances. Start with your own
family aud then put down your cousins
and your second cousins and your
wire's relations. Then put down the
names of the people you know In tbe
town you used to live ln and the peo-
J *ple you know socially. Follow that up
with the people you know in business,
then— *       _
But you can't dispute these figures.
It is too much trouble to think of all
the people you know. You'll never do it,;
