First Anniversary of
Presbyterian Church
Services  Attract   Large
Congregations
It is just one year since the
handsome new brick church built
by the Presbyterians to replace the
old wooden structure which now
serves as a Sunday School hall,
was thrown open to the public,
and the first anniversary services
were held Sunday and Monday
last.
The Rev. Prdf. Geo. E. Pidgeon,
D.D., was the preacher at both
morning and evening services,
which were rendered still more
attractive by the- special music
which was given by the choir,
in addition to solos and duets by
Mrs. James Harvey, Mrs. J. N.
Thompson, Mr. George McKenzie
and Mr. Tom Hill.
The afternoon service took the
form of a special address to the
young, people of the church. In
the evening the church was filled
to its utmost capacity, the Baptist
and Methodist;. churches having
abandoned their services to allow
their me'mbera to yattend the Presbyterian anniversary.
'On Monday supper was, served
in; the Sunday School hall by the
^members of the Ladies' Aid of the
church, and the resources of the
ladies were taxed to their utmost
by the crowd which turned up to
partake of the good things provided.
In  the evening at  8  o'clock a
-public meeting was held  which
.was also very   largely  attended.
The   Rev.   A.   W.   K.   Herdman
A, occupied the chair.
The singing  of "All   Hail^hej
-Power"commented*'the procfeetST
ings, followed by prayer by  the
Rev. E. B. Glass and a brief address
by the chairman.   A violin solo
was    then    contributed   by   Mr.
McBean, followed by a few con-
~>-tft4tulatoty. remarks by the  Rev.
D. J. Welsh, iri which he touched
upon  the progress  made by the
church   and   said   that   although
perhaps   no   outward   sign 'was
-visible to the public eye of the
.great work    done,   an   influence
for good had been extended which
would make.itself felt.
Several musical items then
followed the first of which," Excelsior," a duet by Messrs. Weekes
and Pedlar, was exceedingly well
rendered and greatly appreciated
by the audience. Solos by Mrs.
James Harvey and Mr. George
McKenzie were also well received.
Dr. Pidgeon in his address...on
" Some Ethical Problems of the
Present Day," showed in a very
forcible and convincing mariner
the iniquity in connection with the
various forms of - immoral traffic
which seek to make a business^
out of the frailties and vices of
their fellow men. Incidentally he
pointed out the duty of corporations to enforce the law and of
citizens to exercise vigilance in
taking note of the encroachment*'
of vice, and greed in any community. He strongly combatted'
the notion that the bar, room was
a help to business. Instead it was
the cause of waste and as such
must work injury to all forms of
legitimate enterprise.
Dr. Pidgeon recommended that
a moral reform council be formed
in connection with the different
churches to which all moral questions as they arise could be referred
and gave some striking examples
of reform which had been carried
out in connection with both juvenile and adult criminals. " The
v best asset of our country is human
life," said-the speaker in closing.
The chairman, following up Di.
Pidgeon's address in a few appropriate words drew the attention of
the audience to the local situation
and emphasized the importance
' -N' of a clean city and of retaining
every good measure, which had
already been secured.
Before closing the meeting the
paator, the Rev. A. W.'K. Herd-
man, announced that the sum of
$700 had been realized in connection with the anniversary services;
$500 of this had been collected at
the Sunday services while the
remaining $200 were the proceeds
Meeting of
A meeting of the council was
held Saturday morning, the mayor
and Aldermen Jones, Leckie and
Dalgleish being present. .There
was very little business to transact
and the proceedings occupied only
a.very short time.
The minutes were read and adopted.
Referring to the proposal which
had been made to borrow money
on debentures for the construction
of a gymnasium for the fire brigade
the city clerk said that he had obtained the advice of the city solicitor, which was to the effect that
the city had no power to pass a
by-law for such a- purpose. The
city could not borrow money except for purposes specified in the
Municipal Clauses Act, and the
purpose for which the money was
required was not mentioned in the
act.
W. W. Grummett submitted a
plan of a subdivision of part of
Block 31, map 462, at the corner
of Richter St. and Harvey avenue.
The plan being in order, was approve and accepted. '
The mayor pointed out that that
was the last day for receiving tenders on the $27,000 of debentures
issued during the present year. He
suggested that the finance committee be given authority to open
the tenders and accept the most
favourable.
A resolution was passed to that
effect.
The meeting then adjourned until Tuesday, October 24th at 10
a. m.
From Vancouver to
Calgary by Airship
. George M. Ellis, birdmati, is
busy With arrangements for a flight
from Vancouver to Calgary. Three
times he has virtually tramped the
mountain ranges along jthe line of
the Canadian Pacific, picking out
landing spots, investigating air
currents. He knows the altitudes
he will have to make, the distance
he will have to maintain, them,   r:
Arrangements will be made for
carrying a few parcels of nail, and
other private messages. Aviator

to attend to the final touches to
the machine. He will use.either

The machine, when thoroughly

Aviator Ellis is a Canadian, and
this is to be an all-Canadian flight.

South Western Montana is in the
grip of a terrific snowstorm this
week that has cut off Butte from
communication with the outside
world. Every telegraph and telephone wire in Butte has been
levelled, communication ceasing

was reported that over two feet of
snow had fallen, that all street car
service was suspended and put out

warmest congratulations were due,
he said, to the ladies, for their
invaluable help and untiringenergy.
Meeting of
Board of Trade
The  Board  of Trade  held   its
and think they were to be deprived
of their rights, a«id their property
confiscated, by having a road run
between them and the lake.
It was maintained, however, by
several speakers, that no such interpretation could be given to the
resolution.   The government  had
monthly meeting Tuesday evening t no jurisdiction over  the  road  ex-
fo|
in the office of the secretary, Mr.-
G. A. Fisher. As is only too often
the case there was only a bare
quorum present to consider the
many important questions which
came before the Board.
In the absence of the president
the chair was occupied by Mr. R.
B. Kerr/those present being Messrs.' c;ty
Pitcairn, Haug, Rose, Hereron,
Adams, G, Rowcliffe, J. Leathley,
A, Eutin, Gregory, and D
Sutherland.
The minutes of the last meeting
were adopted and the usual batch
of correspondence taken up; many
of-the. letters referred to advertising
proposals from various quarters,
and were handed Over to the publicity committee tb deal with.
Rererring to a previous agitation
of the Board for the  government
to undertake protective work  on
the banks of Mission  creek, Mr.
Hereron drew attention to the fact
that the Honl Price Ellison  would
be in town on Saturday next,  and
suggested that a  committee  wait
upon him to press the matter,
was of the highest importance
Kelowna that the work should
done.   A committee consisting
Dr. Gaddes, R.S. Hall, S. T. Elliott
and Hereron were  appointed   for
the purpose.
A long discussion took place
upon the project of a road ; along
the lakeshore to South Okanagan.
M. Hereron who introduced the
subject said that the road was one
which would be of the greatest
benefit to Kelowna. ~ The  posses
The
cept outside the city limits,
roa'd, as already surveyed, was a
coritinuation of Pendozi street, to
the. lake, which it touched near Dr.
Bonce's camp, thence following the
shore line to South Okanagan. It
would remain with the city council
to continue the road   through   the
W.-fThe delays in connection with the
transmission and receipt of telegrams it wa3 felt were largely due
to; the fact that the GP.R. system
efaded at Vernon, connection being
made with Kelowna by government wires. All rrjessages had to
be transferred from one system to
the other. A resolution was passed
that the CP.R. be asked to extend
their system to Kelowna.
- The secretary was also instructed
to see Mr. Millie and find out, if
possible, where the delays arose,
and then to write to the proper
authorities asking for a remedy.
A communication was read from
Mr. P. DuMoulin asking that the
matter of loose paper left-blowing
aiound the streets be brought
before the council.
Mayor Sutherland, who was present, said the matter was ope to be
dealt with by the police. If any
person saw another throw paper
on the streets they had. a right to
inform the police. He promised
to take the matter up with the
constable.
A motion was proposed by Mr.
Rose and passed that by-law No.

places on the lake were making a
strong point in their advertising of
the attractions of their lake frontage
and he thought that Kelowna;
which had not-only the lake front
but a wide stretch of country at
the back of it should have the advantage of fine lake shore drives.
The government. he said, was
ready and willing to build the
road along the lake shore to South
Okanagan, but could hot proceed
because there were one or two
people who objected that the road
would interfere with the privacy
of their places on the lake shore.
The majority of the people of
South Okanagan were in favor of
the lake shore road.in preference
to the road through the swamp,
and the people of Kelowna in their
own interest should back up the
government in the. former project.
The swamp road would cost fully
$30,000 to build, whereas the other
tould be constructed fbr little over
$2,000^
Mr. K. B. Kerr expressed himself as strongly in favor bf the lake
shore road. Kelowna ought to
have drives in both directions
along the lake. - As regards the
legal aspect of the case which was
mentioned as a possible objection,
Mr. Kerr said the government
could take back One-twentieth part
bf any crown grant to construct a
road. There was no difficulty
therefore in that respect.
Mr. Pitcairn said that three or
four years ago anyone could walk
or ride along the shore without
obstruction, but now there were
fences running down into the lake
in several places. Inquiries as to
the right of owners of land to erect
these had never produced any
satisfactory results. The question
of government right to the shore
seemed to be involved in the old
difficulty between the Provincial
and the Dominion governments.
Thev all wanted a road along the
lake front but there seemed to_be
many difficulties in the way.   _,»,
A proposal that the Board of
Trade request the government to
proceed with the already surveyed
road along the lake shore from
Kelowna to South Okanagan was
passed. Objection was raised by
G. C. Rose, who  contended  that
S>eople who had bought lake shore
ots within the city, and paid for
them in good faith, believing they
would have a .right to privacy,
might misunderstand the resolution
some
telegraph  service came in
very   strong   criticism.
arrears disputed their liability
claiming that they never intended
becoming members.
It was suggested that the agitation for an experimental farm for
this district be renewed the present
being a very opportune time to
press the matter. The secretary
was also instructed to inquire again
respecting the placing of a mail
clerk on the s.s. "Okanagan."
A list of accounts amounting to
$99.40 was referred to the publicity
committee to be paid if found
correct.
The reckless discharge of firearms by would-be hunters was
also discussed. Three horses had
already been shot and there was a
danger that lives might be lost if
the   carelessness   was    continued.
The secretary was instructed to
write to the attorney-general.
The meeting then adjourned.

ANCIENT MARINERS.
Queer   Beliefs They   He1-  Alpout the
Unexplored Ocean.
The landlocked Mediterranean,
which was the only sea known to the
Romans and Greeks of twenty odd
centuries ago, was filled with mysterious terrors, while the more distant
lands bordering on it were the abodes
of wonders and strange peoples. Gods
ot monstrous shapes ruled the waters,
enchanting sirens dwelt on the islets
and rocks, and on the dry land beyond were to be found weird' enchantresses, fire-breathing beasts, fierce
pygmies and dreadful cannibals. Adventurous voyagers who got as far
as the pillars of Hercules, now called
the Strait of Gibraltar, .brought back
intelligence that the great ocean beyond was not navigable. It was part
of the mighty river which flowed
around the flat earth in an unending stream.
Tradition says that there was in
those times at Gibraltar a stone pillar
100 cubits high, with a brass statue
on it and an inscription stating this
to be the limit of navigation. Beyond
was a "sea oi darkness," infested
with terrors beyond the power of the
imagination to conceive. Occasionally a bold navigator did, nevertheless, venture outside into the Atlantic,
but was compelled to turn back very
quickly. A whirlwind would arise
and threaten to swamp the vessel,
or, more alarming still, a gigantic
hand, supposed to be that of Satan,
would emerge from the ocean of eternal gloom and warn back the mariners.
Not merely on these accounts was
the ocean impracticable for ships. It
was reported to be so dense with
saltness and so crowded with seaweeds and huge beasts that headway
could not be made through it. Eveu
up to the time of Columbus such
beliefs prevailed, and his crews were
terrified on entering the Sargasso sea
by the weeds and calms.
World's Largest Clock.
Liverpool will soon be able to boast
of possessing the largest clock in the
world, which is to be installed in the
new offices of the Eoyal Liver Society's buildings in that city. Here
are a few figures regarding this clock,
which will occupy a position 220 feet
from the ground.
Each of its four dials measures 25
feet in diameter, the minute hands
being 14 feet long and 3 feet at their
greatest width. The "total weight of
the framework for each dial is no les.*
than 3 1-2 tons, and 5cwt. of opal gla;s
has been used for each dial. Th-.'
minute spaces are 14 inches apart,
and the hour marks, which take the
place of the usual numerals, are 3
feet 6 inches in length. Perhap? a
better idea of the size of each dial
may be gathered when it is mentioned that fifty people recently sat down
to luncheon round the face.
Owing to the clock's exposed position, it has been necessary, in order
to safeguard against the worst conceivable weather, to construct each
opal face to withstand a wind pressure" ot~over-11- tons.■  -~  - - •-
An  Opportunist.
' Some facility in trimming sails to
the passing breeze was very useful
to the newspapers of a hundred
years "ago. This is how one of the
Paris papers announced the arrival
and advance of Napoleon after his
escape from Elba: "The Corsican brigand has landed at Cannes;" the
next day, "The rash usurper has been
received at Grenoble." Then the tone
changed: "General Bonaparte has entered Lyons;" a few days after, "Napoleon is at Fontainebleau." and finally. "His majesty the emperor alighted" this evening at his palace of the
Tuileries." Mr. C. F. Warwick recalls the incident in "Napoleon and
the End of the French Revolution."
The Taste For Horse.
Is our dis'.ike of horseflesh simply
prejudice? If we may judge from the
experience of the inmates of the legations, which Miss Hooker recounts
in "Behind the Scenes In Peking.'
the Anglo-Saxon can easi1" acquire
the taste. "It is queer," she ;ay=, "to
see how many people acknowledge
that they like it, having eaten it now
for two weeks. Of course, a great
ileal depends upon the animal, but'
they agree that mule and pony are
better than horse. Some people, even,
who have among their stores plenty
of canned or tinned beef prefer the
fresh horse meat."
A Gladstone Recipe.
At a country house one morning
•lie guests were discussing at breakfast the right way of packing a
sponge bag when the sponge hps been
used and is consequently waterlogged.
Mr. Gladstone, who had apparently
been solely absorbed by his morning's
correspondence, suddenly closed tho
discussion by informing the party
that they were all wrong.
"The only proper method is to wrap
it up in your bath towel and stamp
upon it. Then put it in your sponge
bag.   You will find it perfectly dry."
Sometimes True.
The headmaster of a school recent,
ly put up a. notice that on an early
date he would lecture on the following
subject: "Our Eyes, and How We
See Through Them."
Shortly afterward he was astonished to find an alternative title written
underneath:
"Our Pupils, and How They See
Through Us."—London Stray Storiei.
A  Dry Scot.
Farmer—You had a fire at the
manse this morning. Any serious
loss?
Minister—Yes. Ten- years' sermons
were completely burned.
Farmer (with the memory of many
a weary Sunday morning)—-Weel, but
they made a gran' blaze; they were
so dry, ye ken.
The Way He Wanted II.
"I would like to have my hair cut,
please," he said as he threw himself
into the chair.
"Any special way?" asked the barber.
"Yes," was the reply.  "Off."

There is a fine old formula
that has been popular for
forty years—a mild laxative that you can always
depend upon. It is particularly suited to children
as it is the best known
substitute for Castor Oil.
It is equally good for
adults.
Laxena"
is certain to be effective
and will not gripe. Babes
take it readily and like it.
If baby is cross see to it
first that his bowels are
free and natural in action.

ELECTRIC LIGHTS.
Thulr Effect In the First.Theaters In
Which They Were Used.
The first theater In the world to use
Incandescent lamps was the Academy
of Music, on Halstead street, Chicago,
the plant being installed by the Western Edison Light company. The theater was wired for 100 sixteen candle
power lamps. Tbe lighting was confined to tbe auditorium. No electric
lights were used ou the stage, as dimmers had not been thought of at tbat
time. On the opening night, after the
new lights were installed, tbe actors
struck, claiming that It was impossible
to make up by gaslight and play their
parts under the glare of the electric
lights. It was with difficulty that they
were persuaded to proceed with the
second act ,_
The first theater to be completely
lighted with incandescent lamps waa
the old Harerly theater, then located
on Monroe street, where tbe Inter
Ocean building now stands. This
plant consisted of two dynamos with
a capacity of 637 lamps. On the opening night only sufficient lights were
started at first to enable the ushers to
seat the audience. When the curtain
rose every light was turned on, causing a tremendous sensation among the
audience and eliciting applause that
continued for fifteen minutes. The innovation was so successful that JMc-
Vicker's.theater and the Chicago Opera
House Immediately installed similar
plants.-W. O. Jenkins in National
Magazine.  	
A DENTAL CURIOSITY.
The Set of Artificial Teeth That Washington Endured.
It may not be generally known that
the Father of Hi* Country was one of
the first Americans to wear artificial
teeth. By the time the war of the
Revolution had ended he had parted
company with most of the outfit which
nature bad given him. An ingenious
physician and dentist of New York city
undertook the then unusual task of re-
equipmeut and produced at length a
full set of artificial teeth. These are ■
now. of course, a dental curiosity and
offer an additional proof of tbe heroism
of our first president, for it is a matter
of fact that General Washington wore
those teeth for many years and, so far
as we know, never complained of them.
The teeth were curved from ivory
and riveted, wired and clamped to a
somewbai ponderous gold plate. Three
large clamps in particular figure conspicuously in the roof of the mouth
and must have caused difficulty, if.not
anguish. There were an upper nnd au
under set. and the two were connected
and held iu position relatively, by a
long spiral spring on each side, says
Harper's Weekly.
JJeverl beless Washington wore them
long and well, a fact sufficiently'attested by tbe worn and dinted condition-of
both teeth and plate.
At the last account these teeth were
the property bf a dental institution ln
Baltimore.
''       * A Useful Coffin.
A writer iu au Ku'giisii church matra-
zine once .round In » collier's cotti.jre
in Staffordshire a coffin used as a
bread and cheese cupboard. Notwithstanding his wife's remonstrance, he
told the story of the coffin as follows:
"Eighteen years ago 1 ordered thai
coffin. The wife and me used to have
a good tnaiiy ..words. One day she
said. 'I'll never he content till 1 see
thee In tby coffin.' 'We'll, lass.' I said.
'if that'll couteut thee It'll soon be
done.'
"Next day I pave directions to have
the thing made, lu a few days it
came home, to the wife's horror. I got
Into it aud said. '.Now. lass, are thee
content'/' She began to cry and wanted tbe 'horrid thing' taken away. But
that I wouldn't allow, lu the end she
got accustomed to seeing it. nnd as we
wanted to turn it to some use we had
some shelves put, lu and made it into a
bread and cheese cupboard. We have
never quarreled since It came."

The   New  Minister's Opportunity
Almost without exception the
eastern press, says the " The Province " is expressing satisfaction
with the selection of Mr. Martin
Burrell as minister of agriculture
in the Borden cabinet. During
the one parliament of which Mr.
Burrell was a member he impressed
friends and opponents alike by
his comprehensive grasp of affairs
and by the moderation of his tone,
and he was marked out as a man
of strength who if the opportunity
was afforded him would " do
things."
And this opportunity Mr. Burrell
now has. The agricultural department has never been conducted
with the vigor desirable in a country like Canada. I. has been
allowed very largely to rim itsel.',
or it would perhaps be fairer to
say that the burden has always
been thrown on the shoulders oi
a few able and conscientious
officials, like the directors of experimental farms, who certainly
accomplished splendid work but
who, of course, could not go
beyond certain limits in organization and who besides had their
own special tasks to perform.
AH the provinces, even including
British Columbia, are agricultural
regions, and as a whole Canada
for fertility and extent of territory
is to-day the great country, agriculturally, in the world under one
government. . It therefore offers
an unlimited field for the abilities
of such a minister. Mr. Burrell is
a practical agriculturalist; he is
also a man of ideas, and if any
one can place the department, of
which he has just taken charge, on
a thoroughly good working basis,
and make it of great benefit to the
country, he surely is the man.

Regina restaurants have decided
to draw the color line, and in the
future all blacks, Japanese and
chinese patrons will pay just double what their white brothers are
charged. This is not a money-
making venture, but a polite hint
to these people that their patronage
is not wanted.
British Columbia's coal production during last year increased by
nearly eight * hundred thousand

The provincial department of
public works has awarded to Johnson & Co., of Kamloops a contract
for the building of a wing to the
provincial home for the aged and
infirm. The work will cost $45,000.
This provides merely for the east
wing, which is the first unit in the
modern and somewhat unique
plans presented not long ago by
Architect Frank Owens, a scheme
which in its completion will involve
an expenditure approximated at
$130,000 to $150,000.
The preliminary return? of the
census of the new Union of South

Miss Minnie Smith of Peachland
has written an interesting novel,
having for its location the Okanagan Valley. The work is, to a
great extent, an appeal lor women's
rights, and interesting sidelighs are
thrown on life in the Okanagan
fruit district.
A new ten thousand dollar Opera House is being erected at Enderby.
Archie Finlayson, late purser on
the steamer Okanagan, has been
promoted to the Empress boats
running from Vancouver to Seattle. Alfred Watson from the s. s.
Rossland on the Arrow Lakes, has
taken his place.
Chief engineer John Grey, of the
s. s. Okanagan, caught another
Whitefish in the lake near Kelowna
last week. It measures 18 inches
in length, 5 inches in depth and
weighs 3£ lbs. Mr. Grey has forwarded the fish to Ottawa for inspection by the Fishries Department. The Whitefish are the result of an experiment by the Government 14 years ago, when they
placed upon in the Okanagan and
Arrow lakes. That in the latter is
supposed to have been destroyed
as no Whitefish have been seen
there.
The first consignment of peaches
ever received in London, England,
from the Uuited States was sold
there last month. It comprised
two thousand cases of peaches
from the Wenatchee Valley, Washington. The Ontario peaches were
the only peaches that had previously reached London from this
side of the Atlantic.
Export of Square Timber
The C. P. R. will continue its
summer train-service on the main
line throughout the winter. In former years two trains each way was
sufficient to look after the passan-
ger service in the winter months,
but owing to the great increase in
travel oyer the C. P. R. it was
found necessary to keep the three
trains in operation the year round.
Alderman McMaster, of Vancouver, is heading an agitation there
for the municipalization of the B.C.
Electric Railway Co. and the B.C.
Telophone Co.
The council of Moslems of all
India has appealed for the intervention of the British government
in behalf of Turkey. It iff advised
also a boycott of Italian goods.
The issue of Canadian gold coins
which will be made in the course
of a few weeks will bear King
George's head on one side and on
thi other the Canadian coat of
arms. The dies have now arrived
from England, and coining will
commence as soon as possible. The
designs for the $5 and $10 pieces
are practically the same. The $5 will
be generally known as a "George"
and the ten as a "Double George."
Year by year the export trade of
Canadian square timber becomes
less, due to the inadequate supply
of clear timber suitable for squaring and to the increased home demand. From a bulletin shortly to
be published by the Dominion Forestry branch, it will be seen that
the exports as given by the Department of Trade and Commerce in
1910 did not amount to 8 per cent,
of the quantities exported from
1871 to 1880, when the. trade was
at its height, and when an average
of nearly five hundred thousand
tons worth over five million dollars
was exported annually. During
1910 thirty-eight thousand tons
were exported, or three thousand
five hundred tons less than in 1909.
Ninety seven per cent, of this went
to the Uuited States. An increase
in the price per ton of $2.03 partly
compensated for the decrease in
volume and made the total value
nine hundred and eighty five thousand dollars or only six thousand
dollars less than in 1909.
As first quality white pine is the
chief specimen exported in 1910,
forming fifty-seven per cent, of the
total. Ontario is the province
mostly drained for square timber
exportations. White pine commands the highest price of the
seven exported species, and the
1910 price was $31.22 per ton, a
ton containing approximately 40
cubic feet Birtch was the second
species in importance, although
the eight thousand tons shipped
out was only sixty per cent, of the
1909 amount. The six thousand
tons of elm exported was nearly
four times as much as in 1909 and
with white pine and birtch made
up 95 per cent, of the exportations
in square timber. Small quantities
of oak, ash, maple and red pine
made up the remainder.
