Meeting of
Board of Trade
Deals With Accumulation of
Correspondence
The Board of Trade met last
Tuesday evening for the first time
for some months. In the absence
of the president, Mr. R. B. Kerr,
vice-pre£., took the ch&ir.
A large batch of correspondence
had accumulated during the past
three months and had to be dealt
with.
A letter from the Federal Chamber of Commerce of Montreal was
read, enclosing copy of a resolution urging greater uniformity of
provincial laws, especially relating
to bankrupts. The resolution
which contained some eight or
nine clauses, asked that a judgement given in one province might
be enforced in any other. At present the chairman explained, the
various provinces of the Dominion
treated each other in such matters
as foreign countries. Such a reform
would make it easy to enforce
Judgment against a debtor who
left the province, without the trouble of recommencing proceedings.
Reforms were also asked for regarding the authenticity of notarial
deeds in all provinces, the bringing
back of a civil offender from any
province to the point wnere the
offence was committed, the claim
to succession duties, and other
matters.
The Federated Chamber of Commerce asked that, the resolution be
endorsed by the Board of Trade
and forwarded to the provincial
authorities.
After a little discussion it "was
decided to endorse the resolution,
with the excefrfiph' of certain
clauses which seemed inadvisable.
The Vancouver'E^hibition Association wrote calling attention to the
coming exhibition and asking for a
comprehensive display of fruit from
this district.    No action was taken.
A letter was read from the B. C.
Fruitgrowers Association enclosing
a resolution condemning reciprocity.
A reply was read from the Hon.
Sidney Fisher, who had been written to respecting the establishment
of an experimental farm in the valley. He (Mr. Fisher) was quite as
eager, as the Board to see an experimental farm in the Okanagan,
but there was a difficulty encountered in the selection of a site. The
matter, however, he assuted the
Board was under consideration at
present.
An amusing letter was read from
an indignant traveler who had
staved at one of the hotels in town.
This gentleman had overslept himself the morning after his arrival
and coming uown to breatCiast at
about three minutes to nine, was
told he was too late for the morning meal. He was left with the
option of fasting until midday or
seeking refreshment elsewhere—
which latter he did. Although he
said, he had been travelling up and
down the country for some years,
he had never before had such treatment served out to him. He asked
that the Board bring the case to the
attention of the Licensing Commissioners.
The mattter was laid aside as
too trifling for the attention of the
Board.
A letter was read from the Canadian Credit Men's Association of
Winnipeg, asking the. Board to support an amendment of the criminal
code, so that persons could be
more easily punished for making
false statements respecting their
financial position. No action was
taken.
A letter from Mr. Martin Burrell
M. R, stating that in accordance
with the wishes of the Board he
had pressed the advisability of
making Kelowna a customs port
of entry upon the Minister of Customs. He expressed a doubt however, whether anything would be
done at the present time (the letter • arc now settled
was dated some weeks back ) ow- \ writers' reports
ing   to   the   impending
asking for a result of his investigation.
A long discussion took place on
the difficulty of collecting fees due
oy members to the Board. Several
members it was stated who had
signed the original application for
incorporation of the Board now
refused to pay their dues incurred
since then, stating that they had
joined merely to help the thing
along, and had not expected to be
called upon for an annual fee.
A resolution was passed that
notice be given to such that they
be struck off the list, to be eligible
for re-election only payment of all
back due3. It was mentioned that
in taking this action the Board
were waiving their right under the
statute to take proceedings for collection-of fees.
Mr. R. B. Kerr, on behalf of the
committee appointed to wait upon
the Hon. Price Ellison respecting
the erection of a new Court House,
reported that Mr. Ellison had promised to use his utmost endeavours
to have a new Court House built.
Mr. R. S. Hall asked if nothing
was being done in the matter of
remedying the dangerous condition
of the banks of Mission Creek. A
committee had been appointed to
inspect the spot but apparently
nothing hrJ Tie of it. He did
not   think' ,ple    realised    the
seriousness of the situation. He
understood that an appropriation
of $15,000 had been made by the
government for the-work, and he
suggested that, the Department of
works be asked to proceed with
the work at once.
Mr. Hereron explained no"appropriation had' actually been made
for the work. The $ 13,000 raen-
tipned was the estimate of the
engineer commissioned by the
government to make ah inquiry as
to the cost of constructing a cement
wall to keep the gravelly banlfl on
Irrigation Convention
at Calgary
Next
Year's  Meetings  to
held in Kelowna
the   south-east   side   from   beingiand representing  the  interests
y
The Fifth Annual Convention of
the Western Canada Irrigation
Association was held at Calgary
from Tuesday to Friday of last
week. A large number of delegates
were present from Alberta and
British Columbia, where the various
problems connected with irrigation
and the maintaining of an adequate
supply of water are of continually
increasing importance.
Next year's convention, it was
decided, will be held at Kelowna,
about this time of the year.
Amongst other matters the Convention touched upon the hydro-
graphic surveys which are being
conducted in the Okanagan and
elsewhere. A resulution was passed
which states that the Convention
strongly urges upon the Dominion
government the necessity of making sufficient/ appropriation with
which the work of topographical
and hydrographical surveys may
be carried on in an intelligent and
systematic manner by the staff in
charge. The convention was unanimously of the opinion that this
work, initiated some years ago,
was not, through Jack of sufficient
funds, being carried on in a manner
that the importance of an accurate
knowledge of the " location and
quantity of the water supply available for irrigation purposes demands.
During the discussion which
followed -the moving of the above
resolution, T. H. Peters*, commissioner of irrigation, arose to speak,

Kelowna   Conservative
Association Meets
Appoints Delegates for  Kamloops Convention
A meeting of the Kelowna
Liberal - Conservative Association
was held in Raymer's hall last
Monday evening for the purpose
of electing delegates to attend the
nomination convention which
takes place to-day at Kamloops.
A list of 29 delegates were appointed. Of these Messrs. J. A.
Bigger, H. W. Raymer, M. Hereron,
W.T. Patterson and R. A. Copeland
kindly consented to attend the
convention, voting for the rest by
proxy. It is understood that Mr.
Martin Burrell will again be the
choice of the Conservative party as
candidate for the Yale-Cariboo
division.
A meeting of the Kelowna
Association was arranged for Monday evening next to receive the
reports of the delegates and to
appoint working committees.
It was felt by several present
that the time was come when the
local association should be organized into better shape, and it was
decided than an effort be made to
get together a large gathering on
Monday night for that purpose.
Bishop De Pencier Visits
Kelowna First Time
Consecrates -Mew Church - Ad-
minsters Confirmation
The Bishop of New Westminster,
Dr. DePencier, arrived at Kelowna
on Saturday last to consecrate the
new church at Okanagan Mission,
and also to hold a confirmation
service in the parish church. The
bishop was met at the wharf by
the rector, Mr. D. Lloyd-Jones, Mr.
DuMoulin and Mr. Taylor. They
then drove in Mr. Lloyd-Jones' car
to the new church, which his lordship carefully examined.. He said
he was highly pleased with the
style of building and the workmanship. A short run was then made
round Benvoulin and back to town.
Mr." DuMoulin had kindlv placed
his house and grounds at
disposal   of   the   ladies   who
and profane uses, and dedicated
the same to Almighty God for the
ministration of His Holy Word and
Sacraments, according to the Rites
and Ceremonies of the Church of
England in Canada, and no other,
by the name of St.Andrew's Church.
After the singing of a hymn the
service of holy communion followed, the bishop being the celebrant,
the rector assisting. His lordship's
sermon was most impressive/and
suitable to the occasion. Mr.
Tollit, organist of the parish church,
had charge of the music. . At the
close of the service an excellent
luncheon was served in the Belle
Vue Hotel.
The service in parish church
began with choral evensong, afterwards the bishop administered the
apostolic rite of confirmation to a
large class of candidates. His address to the candidates based on
Phil. i. 9, was eloauent, clear and
inspiring. The church was crowded
to its utmost capacity, many being
the | unable to gain an entrance.
had f    On Monday morning Dr. Boyce
washed down. .
It was decided to write the
government again calling attention
to the state of the banks on both
sides of the creek, and asking that
the work be done at once.
Mr. R. B. Kerr drew attention to
the annoying delays which were
always experienced in doing business with the land registry offices
of B.C. If a document was sent to
a land titles office in Alberta or
Saskatchewan for registration, it
was usually possible t<~ get it back
again inside of two weeks. To
perform the same service in B.C.
meant a wait of three or four
months, in some cases as much as
ten months, There was no need
for this condition of things and he
proposed that the attention of the
government be drawn to it.
A resolution to that effect was
accordingly framed and passed. .
The following were elected members of the Board: Mr. F.S. Coates
and Mr. John Leathley.
It is reported that Mr. H. Rice
has sold out his ranch on Black
Mountain for $12,000.
Mr. Hurlhert, of. Westbank, has
lately disposed of his place there.
Fire destroyed Mr. Collin's store
at Westbank last week. Most of
the contents were saved.
Miss Maud Bennett, B.A., of
Saskatoon, has been visiting with
Miss P. Louise Adams.
A plague of butterflies so thick
as to obscure the light of day is
reported from California. Sunday,
it is said, the butterflies were so
thick that it was impossible to
continue a ball game.
The contract for the balance of
the Canadian Northern line from
Kamloops to the British Columbia
boundary line where the rail head
from the prairies now touches was
let Tuesday,
the government officials in charge
of the work, said that while the
government recognizes the importance of the work, the great difficulty lies in the old fault—not
enough money to spend.
Mr. Peters expressed himself as
pleased to express his appreciation of the work of the convention
in passing such a, resolution, because it should stimulate interest in
general, the great difficulty being
in the education of the general
public to the importance of the
work and thus allowing larger votes
of money. Mr. Peters outlined in
full the work now being done by
the government in the matter of
topographical and hydrographical
surveys, assuring the convention
that they were very anxious just
now to get a good grant of money
that they may do the work full
justice.

Oh Sunday morning after a
celebration of holy communion in
the parish church, at which the
rector was celebrant, the bishop
drove to Okanagan Mission to
consecrate the new church there.
The service was set for 10.30,, but
before that hour the church was
filled with an expectant congregation. The bishop having put on
his robes in the vestry, a procession was formed of the church
wardens, building committee.recfor
and bishop. Having arrived at the
West door the bishop knocked
thrice saying the 7th verse of
Psalm 24. To the response from
within —" Who is the King of
Glory ? " the bishop replies, in the
words of the 8th and 9'h verses of
the psalm. At the word " Open "
the doors were unlocked and the
bishop entered saying, " Peace be
to this house." When the Petition
for Consecration was read by the
rector, the procession walked up
the aisle, the choir and congregation chanting the psalm. The
bishop then took his place in the
chancel and consecrated the church
and set it apart from all common
of the upper and lower benches
the party lunched at Mr. Carruthers*
and drove back to town in time
for the bishop to catch the boat to

The bishop said he was much
pleased with his visit and will
always remember the hearty and
generous way he was welcomed
by the parishioners.

ripening' period has been unduly
prolonged with the result that harvest will not be general over the"
province until Aug. 25.
There was a unique demonstration Tuesday, at.. Pictpn, Ontj to
mark the taking' over for future
preservation of the historic chape 1

in Upper Canada. It was erected
in the summer of I 782, under the
direction of William Losee, .'the
pioneer Methodist minister, in
Canada, and the first . itinerant
Methodist preacher iri the country.
It was enlarged and rebuilt in 1834,
and used until 1868, since when
it has fallen into disuse. The last
general conference, however, voted
to have this cradle of Methodism
brought back and preserved as a
relic.

Things Mr. Hen peck Said Causes Hia
^ Wife to Surmise.
"Mme. Cavalier! says she doesn't
care for money," said Horace Hen-
peck.
"Well," his wife answered, "woutil
you care to be married to such a vrq-
man as she is?"
"No, my dear, I assure you I
shouldn't Still, it seems to me that
too mauy women nowadays think
money Is the only thing that Is worth
while."
"Do you mean to insinuate that I am
sticking to you merely because I .want)
the money you are able to give me?"
"I didn't wish to convey any such
idea, my love."
"Oh! Then I suppose you are egotism
tical enough to think your charms olj
person and manner are sufficient tq
make me crazy about you!"
"I had hoped you might care for
me for my good points."
"Your good points? What do you
mean by that?"
"It would be pretty hard to explain
if you don't understand. I suppose
there are women who love men because of their fine manhood."
"Their fine manhood! Ha, ha, ha! I
should like to see the woman who
could get enthusiastic over your fine
manhood. Don't flatter yourself that
any such women exists. Have you
had the idea that I was enthusiastic
about you because of your fine manhood V
"No, sweetheart;" he answered as he
began to stealthily move toward the
door; "my idea is that you are sticking
to me because you feel that I should
at once pine and die if I were to lose
you."
After he had escaped she indulged
for several minutes in deep thought
and then, with a worried look upon
her face, said to herself:

can be leading a double life."—Chicago Record-Herald. -

Exhibition of Tender
Fruits at Vancouver
We are in receipt of a communication from Mr. R. M. Winslow,
secretary of the B. C. Fruit-Growers
association, in which he points out
an opportunity presented by the
coming Vancouver Exhibition
which may not have occured to
most people.   He says :
One of the problems which the
grower of summer fruits, such as
plums and peaches, must face, in
securing a wide distribution for
his produce, is the successful entrance to the market of Vancouver.
7 hough the consumption of fruit
per capita in the coast cities is not
yet as great as thai in the prairies,
and though prices on the whole
will not average as high as in the
interior points, it is a fact that the
coast offers a large and remunerative market for the fruit grown in
the province. Access to this market has not, however been particularly easy for the British Columbia
grower, especially from the interior
districts, very largely because these
cities are accustomed to looking to
looking to the American side for
their supplies.
The National Apple show last
November did a great deal to show
the coast markets that our province
is producing apples of the highest
quality, and in large and increasing
quantity. The publicity, given
through the National Apple Show,
will be a great feature ih the development of the coast market for
British Columbia apples. No such
publicity has as yet been given our
tender fruits in these markets, but
it seems that a favorable opportunity presents itself through the Vancouver Exhibition, to be held from
August 28 to September 2 next.
We understand from the secretary of this exhibition, that exceptional facilities are offered for the
shipment and display of commercial exhibits of peaches, plums,
early apples &c. This being the
case it seems an exceptonal opportunity to give our fruit a very de
suable publicity in Vancouver.
We would suggest that the fruit
growers of the province, generally,
who realize the significance of the
Vancouver market, and who are
in a position to exhibit, correspond
with the Secretary of the Vancouver Exhibition, with a view to so
placing their fruits on display before the consumers'there.
Marking of Fruit Boxes
Now that the apple and pear
season is on, fruitgrowers are reminded that each box of apples
and pears offered for sale in
Canada must be marked on the
end of each box, in a plain and
indelible manner, in letters not less
than one half-inch in length, with
the name and address of the
grower, the variety name of the
fruit, and the grade, says Mr. D. M.
Robertson, Dominion fruit inspector.
Packers are ren.inded that ordinary black lead pencil marks are
not indelible, and therefore do not
conform with the provisions of
the Inspection and Sale Act, and
that box manufacturers, when requested to do so, will stamp the
end of each box with the name and
address of the grower; who must
add the variety and the grade. A
rubber stamp or stencil when properly used is the best means of
complying with the provision of
the act. When the name of the
variety is unknown or doubtful,
the word " unknown " may be
substituted for the variety name.
Growers and packers are also
particularly reminded that the definition of grades, fancy No. 1 and
No. 2 do not vary from year to
year, nor do they vary in different
provinces of the Dominion. If the
quality of the fruit generally is
poor, the only result is that a small
proportion of the fruit is of the
higher grades.

At the Opera House
The Great Willard Here Tomorrow and Saturday
Everybody in town has br.en
wondering what is meant by the
signs all over town, "Yes He
Grows." They refer to Willard the
man who is coming to the Opera
House on Friday and Saturday
nights of this week. He is able to
increase his height from 7 to 9
inches, and extend his arms fiom
12 to 15 inches. He is the von-
der of the medical world. Besides
being one of the world's greyest
magicians and illusionists he is a
great hypnotist and gives wonderful demonstrations, both scien'ific
and comical. At Calgary when
this company appeared, the house
was crowded for two weeks, hundreds being turned away each
evening. This show will have the
entire town   talking   after  Friday.
Popular prices will prevail, 2?c.
50c. and 75c. A complete change
of programme is given each evening-

" The Flower of the Ranch "
One of the early offerings at the
local theatre will be Joseph E.
Howard's charming musical comedy " The Flower of the Ranch "
on Wednesday August 23. This delightful musical plav is presented
by LeComre, Flesher and Wade,
and will make a complete tour of
Canada and the Western States I his
season with an excellent company
of 40 people, and a complete scenic
production as presented in New
York and Chicago by Howard and
Banison.
The story of western life is well
told, the numbers are bright with
color and breezy with action, the
dialogue is overflowing with witty
yet clean and wholesome comet.y.
The girls are pretty and graceful
and the attraction will prove c ne
of the best offerings of the season.
The importance of a clean wholesome water supply to the farmer
can not be over-estimated. Wnter
is such a constant need of everyday
life and enters so much into almost
every domestic and farm operation,
that without a plentiful supply life
becomes a burden.
Not only is it necessary to have
an abundant supply, but it must be
pure. No precaution is too great
to ensure this purity of the domestic water supply, for the health of
the entire 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 iq 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 surface
seepage, is reliable in dry weather,
often flows, needs no cleaning;
the casing excludes all living animals and insects; no danger of
anyone falling in; can be put
down at the back of the house;
is rapidly sunk to any depth necessary, and you need not wait for
the water to settle ; much cheaper
than a dug well and more certain
in results.
Mr. G. M. Dyer, of the B.C.
Drilling and Dredging Co., is at
present on his way to Kelowna
with an up-to-date portable steam
well-drilling outfit, and will be glad
to receive any inquiries. The cost
is small compared with the great
advantages. No trouble to call and
inspect location and give estimates.

Lo»se?y  Drawn Stipulations That In- REV- THOS. GREENE. B. A.. Rector,
validated His Charitable Trust Bequest—President Polk's Will, Written by Himself, Nullified.
Whether the old saying that "a lawyer who tries his own case has a fool
for a client" is applicable to Samuel
J. Tilden in the matter of drawing his
will is not known. It was thought fpr
some time that the will was drawn, or
at least approved, by Charles O'Conor
and James C. Carter, two of the most
eminent lawyers in New York, but
later statements, says Case and Comment, are to the effect that they had
nothing at all to do with the will, and
consequently it is not definitely known
who was responsible fqr it
It would hardly seem possible that
Mr. Tilden himself could have made
such a mistake had he been acting for
some one else. The statement has
been made that Mr. Tilden had some
doubts as to the validity of those
clauses which the court subsequently
condemned and had spoken to Mr.
Garter about it but nothing more
came of It
In summing up the provisions of the
Tilden will the court in holding it invalid stated that the testator in substance said: "I have determined to *e-.
vote my estate to charitable, educational and scientific purposes. I hart
formed no detailed plan how that purpose can be executed, but under the
law of New York it must be done
through and by means of a corporation. I request you to cause to be incorporated an institution to be called
the 'Tilden trust' with capacity to
maintain a free library and reading
room In the city of New York, and
such other educational and scientific
objects as you shall designate, and if
you deem it expedient—that Is.^if you
think it advisable and the fit and proper thlfag to do—convey to that institution' all or such nart of my residuary
estate as you ol»e*se. and if you, do
;not think that camne advisable then
apply it to such ehartHble, educational and scientific purposes as in your
judgment will most substantially benefit mankind.
It will be noted that the discretion of
the trustees was indefinite both as
to the. amount which they were to give
to the corporation to be formed and
also as to whether they shonld give
any at all to the incorporation, and the
validity of tbe bequest was • denied
upon_ the ground of this complete discretionary power to convey or not to
convey to the suggested beneficiary.
The trustees procured the Incorporation of the "Tilden trust" and elected to convey to it the entire property,
but the court held that the invalidity
of the charitable trust because of Ita
uncertainty could not be cured by anything done by the trustees to execute
It
In striking contrast with tbe Tilden
will Is that of his contemporary in
law and politics. Roscoe Conkllng.
the text of which Is as follows: "I.
Roscoe Conkllng of TJtlcn. make, publish and declare my last will and testament as follows: I give, devise and
bequeath to my wife Julia and* to her
heirs and assigns forever all my pron-
erty and estate, whether real or mixed,
and I constitute find appoint my said
wife sole executrix of this my last
will" It would undoubtedly take a
better lawyer than even Mr. Conkllng
to break his will. 9
In passing upon tbe validity of tbe
will of President James K. Polk a
Tennessee court of chancery said:
"This will was written by the testator
with his own hand in the executive
mansion at Washington at a time
when he was president of the Doited
States. He was a lawyer of recognized ability, had filled many high public offices with distinction and reflected great honor upon bis state. His
will was witnessed by a law partner
and a senator in congress and named
as executor one of the justices of the
supreme court of the United States.
It comes to us with tbe impression of
having been carefully thought out before it was formally put down and
published as his last testament."
Among other provisions his home,
known as Polk Place, situated ln tbe
city of Nashville, was given to bis
wife for life, and upon her death it
was bequeathed to tbe state of Tennessee in trust to be occupied and enjoyed "by such one of my blood relatives having the name of Polk as may
by designated by the said state," and
If there were no blood relatives of
that name then "by such other of my
blood relations as may be designated
by the said state to execute this trust"
The occupant was to keep the'same
in repair and prevent It from dilapidating or falling Into decay... to pay
the taxes and to preserve and keep In
repair "the tomb wbicb may be placed
or erected over the mortal remains of
my beloved wife and myself and shall
not permit the same to be removed nor
any buildings or other improvements
be placed or erected over tbe spot
where said tomb may be."
> This will was declared invalid as
tending to establish a perpetuity. It
was not a gift for public charity and
was merely ah attempt to retain the
property for the use of tbe blood relatives of tbe testator.

Lords Accept Veto Bi
Premier Asquith's government
has at last enforced its will upon the
peerage of Great Britain by the
narrow vote of 131 to 114. By
this vote the House of Lords
decided to accept what the Liberals
contend is the will of the people,
and adopted Viscount Morley's
motion not to insist on the lords'
amendments to the parliament bill.
The bill practically limits the power
of the House of Lords to a two
years' suspensory veto, and vastly
increases the prerogatives of the
House of Commons.
The great constitutional struggle
which began when the House of
Lords nearly two years ago re-
enacted the budget of David Lloyd-
George, chancellor of the exchequer, is ended, for a time at least,
and with the greatest change to
Great Britain's working constitution
since the passage of the reform
bill.
The process of voting consumed
nearly an hour, and the result
trembled in the balance until the
last moment. The " Die-hards"
mustered greater strength than was
anticipated and the government
owes its victory to the votes of between twenty and thirty Conservatives who threw in their lot with
the Liberals to save their own
caste fiom lack bf prestige, and
the king from the necessity of
exercising the royal prerogative for
the creation of a large number of
new peers, from which everyone
believes he was extremely anxious
to be saved.

BOUVETTE & SONS,
Kelowna
After an illness lasting several
weeks/John W. Gates, the American financier, died a few days ago
at Paris. His iron constitution and
courageous resistance, backed by
every resource of medical aid failed
to save Mr; Gates. He had battled
for weeks heroically with a disease
of the kidneys, and when it was
believed he was almost sure tb recover, he contracted pneumonia.
Several times he was reported to
be at the point ot death, but with
the aid of powerful stimulants, he
rallied.
The passing of John W. Gates
marks another milestone on Wall
Street between the 'past and the
present Gates was representative
of the Westerner, who brought
western methods into finance and
who fought his way to the front by
sheer daring. He was typical of
the men whose lives, more often
than not, depended on being able
to handle * their "guns" quicker
than the next fellow. He handled
finance in the same way. He was
long one of the great plungers on
Wall Street, and perhaps his most
celebrated phrase sums him up
better than any other. It would
serve as an epitaph, as it was characteristic of the man:
" I'll bet you a million."
That was equivalent to " Put up
your hands," for few men would
care to bet a million on a turn of
the market, and most men acquainted with Gates knew he was quite
ready to do so.
During his sensational financial
career, Gates, managed to amass a
fortune of nearly forty million
dollars.

ANCIENT EMBALMERS.
Motives Which Impelled the Egyptians to Preserve the Dead.
To appreciate the motives which lin-
|iel led the ancient Egyptians to iuveut
the art of embalming it is necessary
to throw our minds back nearly sixty
centuries. Then Egyptians -were in
the habit of burying their dead in
shallow holes scraped in the soil immediately beyond the limits of the
narrqw strip of cultivated laud. As
the result of placing the body in bot
dry sand it frequently happened that,
instead of undergoing a process of
decay, it became desiccated and preserved in an incorruptible form for
nn indefinite time. The burial of valuable and useful objects with the dead
naturally led to grave robbing, which
was already common in the earliest
known prehistoric times iu Egypt.
This plundering of graves must have
taught the people at large that .be
forces of nature were often sufficient
to preserve a dead body. In this way
it became a part of the religion of the
Egyptians to regard the preservation
of the body as the condition of the
attainment of immortality.
The early Egyptians learned that the
body when placed in a coffin or buried
in a rock tomb usually underwent de
composition. It was a widespread belief that the stone "ate tbe flesh"-
hence the word "sarcophagus." Artificial mummification, therefore, had its
origin in an attempt to deprive the
grave of its victory.-British Medical
Journal.
PARIS STOCKBROKERS.
When They Fail They Are Always
Treated as Criminals.
An agent de change (Paris stockbroker) can under the rule of the code
of commerce never be adjudged bankrupt pure and simple, his insolvency
always involving more or less criminal
responsibility. In the absence of
fraud the penalty is hard labor for a
term, but in case of fraud tbe punishment is no less than hard labor for
life. The public, however, never suffers from the insolvency of nn agent
de change, because bis liabilities, no
matter what tbey amount to, are always taken care of and liquidated in
full by tbe other members of the corporation, who contribute obligator^.?
each year to a sort of insurance fund
or reserve for this purpose. Besides,
each of them must before being appointed make a deposit of 250.000 or
300,000 francs at the treasury, which
allows them an interest of 2M> per cent.
An agent de change, according to
section S5 of the code of commerce,
must not transact any commercial or
banking business for his own accouiiL
He must have no financial interest in
any commercial enterprise, whether in
his own name or under au assumed
name. He cannot even receive payment or settte any account on behalf
of his clients. The penalty for the
violation of this rule may be a fine of
:.,000 francs and eventually the dismissal of the offender.—Moody's Magazine.
Her Tribute to Emerson.
A poor washerwoman In Concord
was seen to be hurrying her work and
rolling down her sleeves considerably
before her usual hour for leaving.
"I'm going out," she informed her
employer, with a pleased and rather
consequential air.
"Where are you going, Bridget?"
"To hear Mr. Emerson lecture."
"Why. he is very deep, Bridget. Most
of us can't understand him very
well."
"Oh, I don't understand him, mum,
but I like to see him stand up there
and talk as if be thought everybody
else was as good as he was."
Tbe great philosopher was absolutely
free from pride, and he made his hearers realize his perfect democracy of
feeling.
Family Preserves.
The following recipe was sent to
the editor of a newspaper who had
established a household column. It
was evidently given by a person of
experience:
To make a good jam place one finger or possibly two lightly on the upper edge of an open desk or bureau
drawer, close the drawer quickly with
the other hand and keep closed for
two or three seconds.
Open it. remove the finger or fingers,
adding plenty bf Interjections. This
recipe has been tried by every member of my family and has never failed.
Northern Eskimos.
The northern Eskimos have absolutely none of the conveniences of civilization. The weapons they use ln
the bunt are tipped with bone or. more
usually, witb native copper, which
they work quite skillfully. Bows and
arrows and sealing spears, with hide
canoes, constitute tbe outfit. Vegetables are unknown in those latitudes,
and they subsist wholly on flesh and
fish.
An Earthquake.
The secretary of agriculture asked
the chief of the weather biKenu, "As a
scientific man. can you tell me anything definite about an earthquake?"
"Certainly 1 can." replied tbe weather mm... who Is witty as welj as wise.
"An earthquake Is a great movement
in real estate."—St. Louis Republic.

Dr. W. G. Grace, the well-known
cricketer, recently celebrated his
63rd birthday. The doctor still
takes an active part in the summer
game and in the winter keeps himself fit by following the beagles.
The King has been graciously
pleased to create the Right Reverend Willcox Perrin, D.D..D.C.L,
the revered and popular Bishop of
Columbia, to be the first Bishop of
Willeaden, England. The appointment of Bishop Perrin to the newly-
created Suffragan- Bishopric of
London may be taken at once as
a compliment to the activities and
virility of the church in British
Columbia and a glowing tribute to
the work and worth of the man
who for 18 years has been an unfailing source of inspiration and
strength to the religious life of this
great province.
Hon. Price Ellison, provincial
minister of agriculture intends visiting Nelson and personally investigating the situation that has arisen
in that section of the Kootenays in
connection with the discovery of a
large percentage of tuberculosis
among the dairy herds. Veterinary experts have declared that
virtually all the slaughtered catde
aire perfectly fit for beef purposes;
and have agreed that there could
not be danger arising through the
use of such beef as food. The
butchers decline, however, to have
anything to do with condemned
dairy cattle, and it would seem
that compensation for a flat loss,
where the animals are ordered
sacrificed, may have to be arranged
for by the provincial authorities.
A cheque for $42,395 was
received by the United States
department of justice from the
Standard Oil Company in payment
of costs in the dissolution -suit
brought by the government under
the Sherman Anti-Trust Law.

A. Schee, an employee in the
Burns' abattoir at Calgary was
killed last Thursday by an electric
shock.- He was playing with a rod
charged with 200 volts, which is
used to prod cattle on the killing
tables. He dropped the rod, and
in picking it up took hold of the
exposed end by mistake. He was
killed instandy.
The Union Bank of Canada is to

Seven Dominion government
grain inspectors were sentenced
last week at Winnipeg to terms
ranging from two months to six
years for thefts from freight cars
in the Canadian Pacific yards. The
proceeds of their robberies were
valued at nearly $10,000.
The construction of three docks
at Vancouver, one to be the largest

change of the steamer "Minnesota's " headquarters from Seattle tb
Vancouver before the opening of
the Panama canal is announced by
Mr. W. J. Costello, traffic manager
for the Great Northern Railway
Company. The estimated expenditure is approximately $10,000,000.
Salmon Arm's agricultural society
has decided to send a complete
exhibit of apples to the provincial
exhibition to be held at New Westminster in October.
Platinum Finds in
the Kootenay
There is a good deal of excitement just now in the Kootenay
district over some astonishing finds
of platinum and other high-priced
metals. Samples were sent for
assays to Butte and Ottawa in order
to make absolutely sure that no
mistake had been made as to the
existence of the group of five
metals—platinum, iridium, palladium, rhodium and osmium. The
result was that answers came giving returns which, especially considering the low cost of mining
ore from dyke and the cost of
treating it, make the operation of
the properties upon which the
minerals exist amazingly profitable.
Several fresh discoveries have
been made during the last few
days, and the rush to the district
is assuming considerable proportions.

In reporting the organization of
the B.C. Horse in Kelowna, a coast
paper rays: "The squadron will
consist of a major in command, a
captain and four lieutenants, one
for each troop, 74 non-commissioned officers and men, and 65
horses, ten of them being dismounted men, who will serve as
cooks, officers' servants, etc." We
knew we had some clever horses
in Kelowna, but we have not as
yet' seen one capable bf serving as
a cook.
More than 1,500 householders in
Vancouver have, been watering
their lawns without paying the
necessary hose tap rates to the
city, by watering through the kitchen windows or from lawn taps
which had never been paid for.
Under the regulations the sum of
$2.50 per season must be paid to
the city after which the owners of
lawns are privileged to water them
from any tap whatever within the
proper hours. It is stated that only
one-third of the city has as yet
been inspected and the total
number of those evading these
regulations has been estimated at
over 4,000, meaning a revenue of
$10,000. All delinquents are to
b« charged for hose taps.
Provincial Government
Imposes   New Regulations.
Sanction has been given by the
piovincial cabinet to the new regulations governing the construction and operation of railroads in
British Columbia, the purpose of
which is to afford protection
against the peril of forest fires.
The first of the rules, to which the
others are largely incidental, is as
follows:—
" During construction, the right-
of-way of every. railway shall be
cleared of all trees, logs, brush and
other 'perishable matter. Logs
specially reserved to be made info
ties, timber or cordwood must be
removed within a reasonable time.
All oth°r . inflammable material
must be piled as near the centre of
the right-of-way as possible without interfering with the construction of the roadbed and burned
under permit from the provincial
fire-warden. Before issuing any
such permit the warden must be
sure that ample precautions have
been taken to render such burnings
—*__.••
There are also provisions that
every locomotive shall be equipped
with an extension smoke box,
fitted with netting mesh ; that the
ashpans on locomotives shall be
covered with heavy sheet iron
dampers, and that wire screens
must be fixed in the windows of
all smoking compartments from
April to October, inclusive.
A geological survey report just
issued on the Big Horn Coal basin
in Alberta (estimates that there are
6,600.000,000 tons of workable
coal in a single area of about seven

Banff, 140 miles south of the
Grand Trunk Pacific and Canadian
Northern railroads surveyed routes.
The strike of 150,000 men which

thja
little purpose.
"You need not trouble to call again
or to communionte with me until you
have discharged rhat girl," was the
ultimatum, nnd l'earsou went away,
angry and indignant, anathematizing
all women and their silly, unreasonable jealousy.
Miss Anthony was not often unreasonable and had had little occasion for
jealousy. She hardly could have explained it herself, but ber annoyance
about the girl nnd her resentment toward her lover had begun when she
had asked the name of tbe new employee and John had replied, "Anna
Darling."
The tiny flames had been fnuned and
increased by every word of praise for
Miss Darling that the unconscious
Pearson had stupidly uttered uutil she
could bear it no longer. She magnified
his satisfaction with the girl's work
into love for the girl herself, and she
felt for the moment quite justified iu
demanding ber discharge.
But with the next day's light Miss
Anthony's good sense and love of fair
play reasserted itself. "How silly I
was," she thought.
She resolved to send him a little note
or a telephone message, but decided to
wait until evening. lie was to take
her to the opera and on tbe way she
would confess In .  nn reasonableness.
The evening passed, and no .lohn and
no message to explain his absence—10
o'clock, 10.:.0! "1 won't be foolish,"
>-he thought (irmly. "1*11 call him up
by phone and tell him 1 want to say
good night."
She had often done this wheu It had
not beeu possible for .lohn to come to
tier. She smiled happily as she rang
the bell and called for the Pearson
residence. John lived with his brother,
aud she knew the family had gone
away. She recognized the housekeeper's voice In reply to her call, but
her face fell at the message. Mr. John
had not been home, aud Mrs. Barnes
could get no reply to frequent calls
over the phoue to the office.
The next morning Miss Anthony
called Mrs. Barnes again, with similar
results. Mr. John did not come home,
and evidently there was no one at his
office. "
Miss Anthony was essentially a woman of action. She dressed herself in
a most becoming street costume and a
half hour later was entering the great
oflice building on Congress street.
Pearson's office was closed, the door
locked.
"He wasn't there all day yesterday,"
volunteered tne elevator boy.
"But surely some one was," Insisted
Miss Anthony.   "The young lady"—
"She came in the morning, but went
away again Immediately," he answered.
Miss Anthony was quick to resolve
and equally quick to execute. She
consulted tbe directory at once and
took a car for Arlington. At the door
of a neat little cottage she paused,
1'es, there was the name. Darling, on
the doorplate. What could she say to
the girl even if she found her? Did
she really expect to believe that she
and John— Then she lifted her bead
proudly. Was she going to be silly
again? Something bad happened to
John, and Miss Darling might be able
to aid her in learning what It was.
When Miss Darling entered tbe room
Miss Anthony coiild hardly restrain
the impulse to take her In her arms,
such a pretty, timid looking "llttlo
thing—hardly more than a child. Her
eyes were visibly red with weeping,
and when Miss Anthony asked her If
she had been at work tbe day before
ber face colored painfully.
Miss Anthony explained enough of
tbe situation for Miss Darling to understand the reason of ber visit, and
then Miss Darling told her own story
hurriedly.
"1 have been with Mr. Pearson nearly
% month and supposed my work was
entirely satisfactory. I went to work
yesterday morniug ns usual, but I had
hardly entered the office when the telephone bell rang. Ou answering It I
found it was Mr. Pearson speaking.
Be said that he should require my
tervlces no longer and would mall me
t check for two mouths' salary."
She paused, choking back a sob.
Hiss Anthony blushed with shame and
regret.   &
"I left the office immediately, of
tourse. 1 cannot understand it, for I
teas at work on some papers tbat Mr.
Pearson was very anxious to have finished this week-work that another
jtenographer could not well take up.
ind"—she besitated-"ns yet I have
lot received tbe check."
Miss Anthony spoke rapidly and with
lecislou.    "Miss   Durllug,  1 am con
vinced that there is some mistake. I
know Mr. Penr--"'i was satisfied, with
yodr work.'.'       ft
"Do yon think." asked- Miss Darling
eagerly, "that it was not Mr. Pearson
—that it was a hoax?"
"I hardly know what to think," returned Miss Anthony evasively, "but I
am so sure tbat Mr.'Pearson Is pleased
with your work and wishes to retain
you In his employ that I am going to
ask you to return to the office now
with me. Perhaps in some way we
may learn something of him."
The two girls were standing before
Pearson's door, nnd Miss Darling waa
searching in her band bag for her duplicate key when a young man approached, saying courteously, "Were
you looking for Mr. Pearson?"
"Yes," answered Miss Anthony
quietly. "Can you teil me if he will be
in today?"
"I think not. There are several important cases before tbe grand jury
this term, aud its sitting may last
three or four days more."
Miss Anthony recognized her inform.
ant as a young architect who had an
office lu the same building.
"I do uot understand," she said.
"What has Mr. Pearson got to do with
tho grand jury?"
"Mr. Pearson was seized yesterday
by United States Marshal Brown to
serve." As Miss Anthony's face betokened no enlightenment he went on:
"When the grand jury was polled yesterday there were three absentees, and
in order to carry on the business it
was necessary to till those vacancies.
The absent men are sick, and ft would
greatly retard the work of the government if tbe jury had to be adjourned until they recovered."
Miss Anthony regained her poise.
"Would Mr. Pearson have to go if he
did not wish?" iu stately surprise.
"Yes: any citizeu is liable to such
draft."
••Put- but hTs own busiuess?" interposed Miss Darling.
••Quite a secondary matter ln the
eyes of the law," replied the young
man.
"And in such a case is no message
sent to the' I'iizeu's friends?" questioned Miss An.bony.
'•Certainly: It Mr. Pearsou bad any,
clerk or secretary in hl« office the deputy marshal wou'd likely uotify that
person, and'Mr. l'earsou could send a
message to his family If he hns one." .
Miss Anthony ai>d Miss Darling exchanged glances They knew that
Mr. Pearson had uo family and at tba
time of his unwelcome seizure he had
no clerk, and Miss Anthony knew why
no message bad been sent to her.
"And Mr. l'earsou cannot come away,
lie is-he is held there?"
"Held by the government," he replied smilingly.
Miss Anthony thanked him courteously, aud tie |;asseU m _
Miss-Darling unlocked the door, and
the two girls entered tbe office.
"Is the work Mr. Pearson wanted
done all stenographic work?" Miss Anthony asked.
"Not all. There are some abstracts
to be copied and"—
"1 shall help you." with gentle decision
When the grand jury adjourned
United States Marshal Brown handed
a note to Juryman Pearsou.
"Miss Darling and I have your work
nearly done." read the, astonished
Pearsou. "Please come to me as soon
as you are released. 1 think we had
bette'r arrange matters so that if you
are held by the government again you
will bave some one to whom a message must be sent."
The Cat In Japan,
According to a Japanese writer, the
domestic cat appeared in bis country
at a relatively recent epoch, having
traveled from China with the missionaries of Buddhism. In the middle of
the sixth century oi tbe Christian era
sacrifices were ottered to tbe cat, which
was known by all as "the guardian of
the manuscripts."
"The guardian of the manuscripts"
kept away tbe mice tbat otherwise
would have eaten ihe precious papyrus,
in some Instances placards were set in
conspicuous places among manuscripts
as a warning to the mice: "Beware!
The cot is here. She drives the mice."
Portraits of cats were also placed lu
places frequented by mice.
The cats were revered. For a long
time tbey were kept ln tbe temples.
But tbeir beauty, their general desirability and tbe charm of tbelr grace, affection for man and adaptability to
human conditions so appealed to the'
layman that one by one very gradually
tbelr kittens were permitted to leave
tbe temples and to become the pets of
tbe nobility. After entering the families of tbe high officials of the empire
they won their way Into humbler
households.-Harper's Weekly.

New Prooeas of Staining Glass.
Tbe art of coloring glass has been
lost and refound, jealously guarded and
maliciously stolen so many times in the
history of civilization that It seems almost impossible to say anything new
on glass staluing, yet a process has
beeu discovered for making the stained
glass used In windows which Is a de^
parture from anything known at thai
present time. What the Venetians and
the Phoenicians knew of It we cannot
tell. Tbe glass first receives Its design in mineral colors, nnd tbe whole Is
then flred In a heat so inteuse that tbe
coloring matter and the glass are in-
dlssolubly fused. Tho most attractive
'eature of this method Is that the surface acquires a peculiar pebbled character ln tbe heat, so tbat wben the
glass is in place the lights are delightfully soft and mellow. In making a
largo window In many shades each
panel Is separately molded and bent,
and the sections are assembled In a
metal frame.-Chlcago Tribune.
