Heavy Damage From
Big Midnight Blaze
Kelowna Carriage Works Is
Total Loss
Cameron's blacksmith shop and
carriage works was burnt out soon
after Tuesday midnight in one of
the most spectacular fires which
has visited Kelowna for some
time. The alarm was sounded
about half-past twelve.and although
the brigade were on the scene
without delay, in an incredibly
short time the whole building was
ablaze, the flames leaping high in
the air and illuminating the whole
town.
The building was an old wooden
one of two stories, the ground
floor being used as a blacksmith
shop, while above was stored a
valuable stock of carriages and
parts.
The fire started first in the rear
of the building, and in the strong
wind which was blowing at the
time spread rapidly. The strength
of the breeze may be guaged from
the fact that sparks and blazing
fragments were carried clear over
the main street, a piece of burning
shingle being actually deposited on
the roof of the English church
several blocks away and had to be
removed to save the roof from
catching fire. A rain of sparks fell
on the surrounding buildings and
some anxiety was felt for a time
as to'the safety of other premises.
The roof of the Chinese restaurant
next door actually did catch fire
but was quickly extinguished. An
electric light pole near by was
also considerably burnt and the
wires stripped of their insulating
material. _ Luckily, however, the
wires," Which carried current at a
high tension, held fast, or the firefighters might have been in considerable danger from that cause.
The brigade boys fought manfully with the flames, but the fire
had gained too strong a hold to
save anything of the building or its
contents, which were totally ruined.
The total loss is estimated at
about $7000, of which about $3000
is covered by insurance. . The
heavy loss is due to the valuable
stock of hardwood wagon and carriage parts which was stored on
the uppsr floor. A good deal of
this had only just been received
from the makers. A new tire bending machine which was installed
only a week or two ago at the cost
of $200 was amongst the wreckage.
The greatest sympathy is felt for
Mr. Cameron, or " Jack " as he. is
generally known, in his loss. Nothing daunted, however, he is fitting up a "temporary shop in an
empty shed which remained untouched by the fire. It is his intention to rebuild as soon as possible
but in the meantime he is equinin<»
a shoeing forge, and will open for
business at once.

Although returns at the time of

result oi the election to show that
the Liberal Government has sustained a most crushing defeat, and
that a sweep of the political pendulum has placed the former opposition in charge of affairs with
a majority of between 50 and 60.

The royal commission under the
Public Inquiries Act appointed
some few weeks ago by the Provincial Government to conduct a
general investigation into taxation
problems throughout British Columbia (in accordance with the promise
in this regard made to the country
through the local parliament at its
last session) is to begin its comprehensive and important study of
assessment and taxation conditions
sitting first in Victoria on September 25 and 26 and afterwards in
various important population centres of the province, in each of
which witnesses will be examined
and complaints or suggestions
heard.
The commission is composed of
Hon. Price Ellison, minister of
finance, the chairman ; Hon. A. E.
McPhillips, president of the executive council ; Mr. W. H. Malkin, of
Vancouver.a well-known wholesale
merchant and progressive student
of practical economics, and Mr.
C. H. Lugrin, editor of the " Victoria Colonist." Its functions are
to carefully investigate the operations of the Assessment Act of
1910 and assessment and taxation
matters generally, reporting the
evidence taken, with conclusions
and recommendations, to the
government. A secretary and a
stenographer will accompany the
commissioners on their^interesting
tour.
The commission will be in
Kelowna on Saturday, October 21.

Big Bank Robbery at New
Westminster
Three hundred and fifteen thousand dollars was stolen early Friday morning from the New Westminster' branch of the Bank of
Montreal. Five burglars entered
the bank by the front door, broke
through the thin metal coating of
the vault, blew the safe by charges
of nitro-glycerine and got clear
away with their booty without being seen except by a Chinese caretaker. They probably escaped
down the Fraser River by a launch
or else by automobile towards
Vancouver—but of how they got
away there is no direct evidence.
There was in all $350,000 in the
bank safes. Chief of Police Brad-
shew believes the men would have
taken it all if they could have carried it As it was they took all
they could carry away, leaving all
the silver and notes of small denominations as* well as damaged
five hundred and thousand dollar
bills lying around the floors and
tables of the room of one of
clerks.
The sum o^$5000 has been
ered by the Bank of Montreal

men.

Sixty-six young people of the
Methodist Church are indebted to
the Rev. J. W. and Mrs. Davidson
for an exceedingly pleasant evening spent, Monday last at the
parsonage on Richter Street. The
social was given to inaugurate the
winter session of the Epworth
League, the leader of which we
are glad to learn is Mr. W. E.
Adams. Competitions, games, and
the following short programme
made the time pass all too quickly:
Mrs.~W. E. Adams, reading :
" When Albani Sang."
Mrs. P. Brook, song ;
" The Dear Homeland."
Miss P. Louise Adams, song:
" Island of Dreams."
Miss Winnie Jones, paper on
"The Life of Beethoven."
Mr. A. E. Boyer, song:
" O Promise Me."
The League meets everv Monday evening, and some real good
times are assured the friends who
attend. Monday next will be
devoted to business, including
election of officers for the session.
The news that Sir William MacKenzie, Sir Donald Mann and
their associates of the Canadian
Northern Railway had acquired
the charter of the Couteau Power
Co., aroused censiderable interest
locally. The announcement is
hailed as an assurance that the
advent of a railroad for which
Kelowna is eagerly looking, is now
within measurable distance.
The charter of the Couteau
Power Company provides for the
obtaining of power from the
Shuswap Fall8,Iocated near Lumby,
north of Vernon. This power is
to be utilized, according to the
terms of the agreement, for the
electrification of a tram line that
will run through the Okanagan
Lake district, from Enderby. in
the north to Kelowna in the south,
giving means of rapid transportation to the fruit-growers of the
valley, and supplying light and
power to all points along the line.
The line, it is anticipated will be
used by the C.N.R. to link with the
Kamloops - Okanagan railway,
which is marked for construction
in the near future.
A party consisting of the Hon.
Price Ellison, Sir william Mackenzie
and other C.N.R. officials visited
the valley last week-end, motoring
from Kamloops to inspect in a
general way the proposed route.

Miss Cummer, of Calgary, who'

returned to her home last Friday.
Mr. G. Armstrong, of Chase,-
near Salmon Arm, is staying with
Mr. Lansdowne for a. short time.
The afternoon tea held at Mrs.
S.Sproule'8 home last Thursday was
a very enjoyable and successful
event. The table decorations were
unique, being a centrepiece of
asters banked with balsams, while
the eatables were served by Miss
Pearl Sproule, assisted by Mrs.
-Newby, Miss Anna Knight, and
Miss Lily Bird. The freewill offering was toward the funds of the
Ladies' Aid Society of the Methodist church and amounted to $ 15.
The president aptly quoted the
text" Go thou and do likewise," to
the members of the society present.
Miss J. Brown, of Sunderland,
England, is visiting Mrs. G. Long-
staff.
The attention of holders of water
records in the district is directed
to the important announcement
emanating from the Department of
Lands which is given on the back
page.
The send-off accorded to Mr.
A. S. Cox on Wednesday morning
left no doubt, if, indeed, any
existed, as to the
has gained during
stay in Kelowna.
As an alderman of the city for
the past three years, Mr. Cox has
devoted time and energy unselfishly
and without favour for the good of
the city. Whilst serving at various
times on most of the committees of
the council hisvprincipal work has
been as chairman of the Health
Committee.
The Methodist church will lose
in him a supporter of no mean
order. For some years Mr. Cox
has acted as a trustee and financial
steward of the .church, whilst also
ably filling the position of choir
leader. It was iri connection with
the latter that a friendly gathering
of the choir took place at he house
of Mr. Cooper on Friday last.when
on behalf of the choir members
Mis3 P. L. Adams presented the
ritiiing leader with a handsome
suit case.
In a few well-chosen words Mr.
Cox thanked the friends for the
token of their esteem, and said
that though he was leaving, the
firm friendships he had made in
Kelowna would remain with him
as a stimulus in the future. The
gathering broke up with the singing of "God be with you till meet
again
The church also loses an earnest
worker in the person of Mrs. Cox,
whose presence in the Sunday
School-will be sadly roisaed^and .
to whom the Kelowna branch of
the Women's Missionary Society
owes its existence.
It has been the custom to hold
the annual meeting of the W.M.S.
in the park, but owing to the
pending departure of Mrs. Cox it
took the form of a farewell gathering and was held at die house of
Mr. Curts on Thursday last An
interesting feature of this meeting
was the presentation to Mrs. Cox
by Mrs. W. Glass, on behalf of
the CM.S. of a life-long membership of that society (value $25) in
recognition of her services.     "*-''
Mr. and Mrs. Cox and their son
left Kelowna Wednesday morning
for an extensive tour in the Old
Country, following which they will
take up residence on their property in Vancouver. We wish
them a hearty bon voyage.

HOW TO HAVE WINTER EGGS.
Make    Hens   Comfortable   and    Keep
*        Chicken  House Clean.
One groat'essential in getting winter egcrs is to make the hens entirely
comfortable. The first tiling to do is
to get busy how and clean out the
house thoroughly. Remove every useless iirticle and .leave the floors entirely free from anything that will
obstruct their free use as a scratching
place. Clean down the walls, spray
thoroughly, remove every bit of litter
from the floor, and if. it is a dirt
floor take out at least a couple of
inches of tho old dirt, which should
he   replaced   with   clean   loam.
Make ready a corner in each pen
that ciui he used as a dusting box.
This can be kept supplied with tlio
lino .sittings from hard coal ashes
and will be much enjoyed by the
whole Hock. If it can be placed where
the sun will .shine on it so much tho
belter. Do nut close the windows
until the weather gets real cold. Let
there be one glass window for each
pen of ,10 by 12 or IG feet and ono
muslin 'covered frame, with at least
twelve square feel of surface for eaeh
pen.
This may look like a cold proposition, but it will be found the muslin
does not make the pen any colder
than does the same amount of glass,
surface and at tlie same time gives a
steady supply of fresh air. This muslin will help greatly in keeping the
poultry house dry during the winter
and will make it much more comfortable than a closely shut up house can
ever be.
For colder nights have a curtain of
cheap sheeting running across the
front of the roosting place. This does
not need to fit tightly except at the
top and may hang out some inches
from the dropping boards, giving plenty of room fur the fowls to pass to
and from the roosts. On the very
coldest of nights the roosting place
will be found to be entirely comfortable, and in the morning the hens
will come out ready to scratch and
hustle for their breakfast.
Above all things, be sure to keep a
g^ -d six inches of perfectly dry straw
on the floor for scratching material.
There can be little comfort for the
hen in scratching a pile of dirty, damp
litter that has been on the floor for
a month or more.
"Mrs.  Pat's" Daughter.
Miss Stella Patrick Campbell lias
delighted her numerous friends by
a.akiing a hit in H. 13. Irving's new
product io:: at the (Jueen's Theatre,
London.
Mis.. Campbell is. the physical
counterpart of her famous mother.
She has the same mysterious dark
eyes, the same transparent eo'.or, and
the.  same   mas.es  of   blue-black   hair.
She graduated in J!MM from an
academy at Dre.-den, and iu the same
year she was presented at court. At
"that time Mrs. Campbell was determined that she should not'adopt a
theatrical career. Miss Stella, .however, was equally determined that she
would do so. and sh" got her way
during her moth r's American tour,
when she n trde promising appearances, a.; Hll-eui. in The Second Mrs.
Tanqiirrary, arid as Marie in Magoda.
Miss  Campbell   i.~  barely  twenty-one.
Her mother, by tlie way, was never
stage-stnud. as lur daughter has
been. "NoUiim: but stern necessity
drove me to the stage," says Mrs.
Campbell. "I had lo decide between
beconumr a governess and educating
the children of others or g'ling on
tlie stage, where L could be near my
own. I walked into a dramatic
agent's office, h:.nd.d. in my name,
and paid a guiiie ju-'t like any other
woman."
Could Ncl Understand.
The bedtime hoi:; was at hand, but
after the usual ; reparations for tlio
night Violet hesitated over her prayers. After a neiment's silence she
said, "Mummy, d 'ar, are our prayers
answer'./!-1"
"Why, yes. dear," replied Mamma.
"But what a question, dear!"
AI asked became, if they are, why
do you smack me? Why don't you
pray for me to be a good girl? It,
would be so much more comfy."
Father   of   Astronomy.
Hipparcus. the father of astronomy,
established the fact of the procession
of the equinoxes—that is, that the
sun crosses tlie en.uatnr about one
minute further westward eaeh year--
150 years before Christ was born, and
it is consequently believed that he
knew tho earth was spherical in form.
He catalogued 1,000 stars aud invented an instrument (or calculating latitude and longitude.
Coral From Italy.
Much of the costly red, white and
pink coral used for ornamental purposes is obtained from the coast of
Italy. Men go out in boats and drag
the rock bottom of streams villi
wooden frames or nets, in which the
coral becomes entangied, but the delicate branched are crushed in this
way. Tbe finest coral is obtained by
diving.
The Value of Politeness.
Smartness is not always smart; indeed, smartness is not smart half the
time. An act which half the people
will say is gtnart will disgust the other half. But politeness is always politeness. Even honesty is not always accepted as honesty, and fairness is not always accepted as fairness, but politeness always niakes a
favorable impression.
Making Toast.
When making toast you will improve it both in taste and digestibility
by laying the slices of bread in the
ovea for a little while before putting
them over the coak or ii. the toaster.
They will "toast better and more evenly for this advance treatment.
Good   Place  For  It.
Willie—Here's a sign I got from
the postofficc.
Mrp. Slimson—Why, Willie, what do
you mean? It's the sign "For Transients."   You just take it right back.
"I thought you might like to hang
it up in your kitchen."

A boat equipped with a Roberts motor is a continual
source of pleasure.    None of those irritating worries
which, in spite of your experience with other makes,
are not inseparable from motor-boat running.

The Aero-Lite is lighter in weight without any
sacrifice of stability. It is made of a special alloy,
lighter than aluminum and stronger than cast iron,
and with better wearing qualities than either iron

Government Exhibit
of Potatoes
To the Editor of
"The Orchard City Record."
Sir,—
I would ask you to kindly, through
the medium of your paper, inform
potato growers in your district
that the. Provincial Government
has decided to make a display of
Potatoes at the American Land
and Irrigation Exposition to be
held at Madison Square, New
York, November 3rd-12th. Mr.
Asabel Smith, of Ladner, has been
appointed commissioner to arrange
for the collection and preparation
of this exhibit, and will also
accompany it to New York.
The preparation of this exhibit
will be undertaken at New Westminster from which place the
exhibit will be shipped to New
York. In order to allow latitude
to Mr. Smith, who will have charge
of the preparation of the exhibit,
it will be necessary that he receive
at least fifty pounds of carefully
named and selected Potatoes, and
these potatoes must be chosen
having reference to smoothness of
akin, uniformity of size, and flush-
ness of eye, and absolute freedom
from all scab or blemish, and all
potatoes must be received in New
Westminster not later than October
14th.
It is desired to make this exhibit
as comprehensive as possible. The
Stillwell Trophy Award, value
$1,000, will be given by the Exposition to the best collection.   It
is the desire of this department
that a big effort be made to
capture this trophy. This can only
be done by the co-operation of the
growers. The exhibit will be made
up of as many varieties as possible,
and not less than half a bushel of
each variety. The yield of each
variety per acre (which must be
officially surveyed, must be sworn
to by the grower and attested by
two or more reputable witnesses.
Officials appointed by this Department will be considered sufficient
authority in surveying the land
from which potatoes are taken.
Arrangements are being made for
two or three men to cover the
whole of the Province and visit the
growers who wish to compete, in
order to officially measure the
ground from which the potatoes
are taken.
Any potato growers in your
district who are willing to assist
the department in making this
exhibit, are requested to communicate immediately with Mr. Asahel
Smith, Ladner, B.C.
The winning of this trophy will
mean a great deal to the district in
which the potatoes are grown and
I trust that we may receive the
hearty co-operation of all the
potato growers in order to make
the exhibit a success.
1 have the honour to be, sir,
Your obedient servant,
WM. G. SCOTT,
Deputy Minister.

Dug Wells v. Drilled Wells.
The importance of a clean wholesome
water supply to the farmer cannot be overestimated. Water is such a constant need
of every-day life, and enters so much into
every domestic and farm operation, that
without a splendid'supply life becomes a
burden.
Not only is it necessary to have an abundant supply, but it must bs pure. No
precaution is too great to ensure this purity of the domestic water supply, for the
health of the en'.ire family depends upon
it.
The location of the well should be
chosen with care, and above all it should
be drilled. The dug well is a source of
danger, uncertain in its supply, reeks with
germs of typhoid and other fevers, requires cleaning for dead mice, rats, etc.,
annually, and surface drainage can never
be cut off.
The drilled well cuts off snrface seepage
is reliable in dry weather, often flows,
needs no cleaning, the casing excludes ail
living animals and insests. There is no
danger of anyone falling in, it can be put
down at the back of the house, and is
rapidly sunk to any depth necessary, and
you need not wait for the water to seftle.
It is much cheaper than a dug well, and
more certain in its results. '
Mr. G. M. Dyei, of the B.C., Drilling and
Dredging Co., is at present in Kelowna
with an up-to-date portable steam well-
drilling outfit, and will be glad to rec.-ive
any enquiries. The cost is small, compared with the great advantages. No trouble
to call and inspect location and give
estimates.

has been improved .on. Now there
is no possible chance of mistaking
it for a one-dollar bill. Before the
defect was noticed by the government and rectified, many complaints were made to the effect

change for one-dollar bills. On
the new bill the word " Four" has
been printed in ' large type across
the top in both corners, while on
the back the same change is
duplicated, the word being printed
across the figure at both ends of
the bill. vThe Lord and Lady
Minto portraits are being used on
these bills.
