Meeting of City Council
Deputation Waits on Council Concerning New Road From
' Kelowna to the Mission
Serious Accident in
Public Park
The city council held a meeting
Tuesday morning, the Mayor, and
Aldermen Leckie, Jones and Dalgleish being present.
The usual minutes were read
and adopted.
A deputation consisting of some
five  or six  residents from South
Okanagan waited on the council.
Dr. W. W. Jones, who introduced
the    deputation,   said    they   had
cofne   as  representatives of   land
holders of Okanagan Mission upon
a  matter  which  while  it  was of
some   importance  to   the  city of
Kelowna was- of vital importance
to  themselves, namely, the  question of a new road from the Mission to Kelowna.     It would probably, said the speaker, be  within
his  worship's knowledge, that the
existing rond was long and circuitous.    Not only that, but at. the end
of  the swamp through which the
road  passed   were   several  steep
hills.   Owing tojhe length of the
road  and  the  presence of  these
hills it was possible only to haul
about three-quarters of a load and
the trip to town could be made
only once a day.    A new direct
road  had  been  surveyed  by the
government, and which the people
of South Okanagan were anxious
to have constructed, which would
so shorten the distance that they
would be able to make two journeys
into town a day, and also, because
of the easier grades be able to haul
a full load.   It would thus increase
their hauling capacity by nearly
-  three lo one. ^bout'^elven*^i1H8
ago, continued Dr. Jones, they had
taken   up   the   matter,   and   had
I'jbetitioned the government to proceed with the road.   The road had
been promised  and  they understood that an appropriation had
' been made for the purpose.   Some
time    after,- however,   theyvhad
heard  that Mr.  M. Hereron, the
road foreman of the district, was
about to construct a road along the
lake shore which would be of no
earthly use to them.    They had at
once waited upon the Hon. Price
Ellison, who had kindly promised
to see what he could do in the
matter, and had arranged to send,
an engineer down to go over the
roads and  report.   The engineer
had been down but they did not
know what his report had been.
The road foreman had since been
endeavouring to get up an agitation
in Kelowna in favor of the lake
shore road.   At the last meeting
of   the Board  of Trade he had
induced  the  members present to
pass a resolution urging the government to  proceed  with   the  lake
shore road.    It was highly improbable  that the government would
construct two roads, and they considered that it was in the interests
of Kelowna as well as the residents
of the Mission, that the new road
should   be the   shorter   business
Aid. Dalgleish asked if it would
be satisfactory to the people of the
Mission if both roads were constructed.
Dr. Jones replied that they were
not concerned with the lake shore
road one way or the other, what
they wanted was the shorter and
better road for the hauling of their
produce, and they were there to
ask for an expression of opinion
from the council in support of
their wishes. The lake shore road
was no shorter than the old one
and would not be of the slightest
advantage to them. They had a
petition with them in favor, of the
shorter business road which was
signed by every land owner of the
Mission, except one, who had as
yet been unable to sign, but who
had expressed himself in favor of
the road. The wishes of the people
of Okanagan Mission had been
misrepresented by the road foreman.
Mr. Colin Smith said that the
road they asked for was the shortest, most level, and as far as he
could see, had the most solid foundation of any.   The idea had been
road  that it
swamp    and
advanced against
passed through a
would be difficult and expensive
to construct. He believed, however, that the road would avoid the
slough. Mr. Hereron's estimate of
$30,000 as the cost of the road he
considered was very much beyond
the mark. It would probably cost
about the same to build as the lake
shore road. There were many
arguments against the latter. *It
was too breezy, and anyone coming
in witb a load of loose hay would
have it all blown to pieces before
they reached town. It would be
longer and would not have so hard
a surface.
Mayor Sutherland said he gathered from the speakers that the
people of Okanagan Mission were
practically unanimous in their
wishes. He could not understand
why the government should not
build the road they wanted.
Aid. Jones questioned whether
it would be wise for the council to
deal with the matter at all, as it
seemed to be outside the province
of the city. He. understood that
the deputation was to wait the
same day on the Board of Trade.
Mayor Sutherland said that the
city was interested indirectly in
anything which affected the surrounding country.
Aid. Dalgleish thought that the
city would be unwise to fight
against the lake shore road project. It would undoubtedly be a
splendid 'thing for_ city and district
to have a road by, the side of the
lake. At the same time he did
not see why the Mission people
should not have the other road if
they wanted it.
Mr. C. Smith said that if the
lake shore road, which was purely
intended for pleasure, had to be
made they would certainly not get
the other. Business should be considered before pleasure. They
should have the road first which
would be the greatest advantage
from a business standpoint, and
then consider the development of
the district.
Aid. Jones felt sure the government would not do anything in
direct opposition to the wishes of
the people. He did not think it
necessary for the people of the
Mission to trouble about the matter
until some steps were taken in the
direction of building the lake shore
road. He was present when a
deputation from that district had
waited upon the Hon. Price Ellison,
and he had assured them that they
should have the short road if they
wanted it.
Dr. Jones explained that the deputation wanted the council to express the opinion that the shorter
business road was of more importance to the district. The road
foreman had stated semi-ofBcially
that the government were willing
to build the lake shore road.
.Mr. C. Smith said that what they
were afraid of was that the misrepresentations which had been
made would have some weight
with the government. Once the
lake shore road was made it might
be years before they got the more
necessary business, road.
Aid. Jones asked if it was 'found
that the road they wanted would
cost up to $30,000, would that fact
change their view.
Dr. Jones replied that they did
not of course ask for any extravagant expenditure of public money.
He believed.however that the surveyors had represented that the
shorter road would also be the
cheapest and best.
Mr. Bell of Okanagan Mission
also spoke in support of their contention.
Aid. Dalgleish said it seemed to
him to be a matter between the
people of Okanagan Mission and
the Board of Trade, and was not
within their province as a council.
Mr. Bell pointed out that they
had been given to understand that
the citizens of Kelowna wanted the
lake shore road, and they would
Man Has S'aill Crushed By
Falling Tree
An alarming accident occurred
in the park last Thursday afternoon
during the progress of a football
match between two Kelowna teams.
A tree, which was being cut
down at the time, fell unexpectedly
in the direction of the small grand
stand. Striking the corner of the
stand the tree glanced off and hit
a young man named James Madden, smashing ih his skull and
inflicting terrible injuries. Several
people at once ran to his assistance
but it was feared that the young
fellow would die before a doctor
could get to him. After an anxious
wait of some twenty minutes, Dr.
Huycke arrived on the scene, and
had the injured man removed to
the Hospital, where an operation
had to be immediately performed
to remove the portions of broken
skull. Madden lay unconscious
for near three days and little hope
was entertained of his recovery.
During the last day or two however
he has been reported as progressing favorably, and it is now expected that he will be able to pull
through. .
There were several people on
the grand stand at thetime and it is
a wonder that more were not injured if not killed outright. Mr.
F. W. Peters and Mr. P. DuMoulin
had extremely narrow escapes,
both being thrown to the ground.
Several other people received sharp
blows from the smaller branches
of the tree.
The trees which are being removed from the park are some old
half-dead ones which have been
condemned as dangerous and
liable to be blown down at any
time. One in fact did fall last year
smashing down tKe flag pole. Unnecessary risks appear to have
been taken in cutting down a large
tree within reach of a crowd of
people . Some attempt was made
to prevent such a mishap by using
guy ropes, but the tree appears to
have got beyond the control of
those who held them.
Great sympathy is expressed for
the unfortunate victim of the accident. Madden is an Englishman
and had come down from Vernon
that same day. He had only been
in Kelowna a few minutes in fact,
having walked straight from the
boat to the park.
Growing Kelowna
Rapid Progress of Kelowna
Mr. R. S. Ford has already found
his cleaning and pressing business

and is removing'this week to the
premises next door, lately occupied
by the Misses Laidlaw as a restaurant.
like to have the assurance of the
council that the people of the
Mission would nottbe opposed in
their request for the other road.
The discussion continued for
some little time, when the following resolution was put and carried:
" That this council, having heard
the deputation from the Mission,
re a road from Kelowna to that
place, and being asked for an expression of opinion, would recco-
mmend that the wishes of tKe
majoi ity of the Mission residents
be accepted to."
The deputation then withdrew
and the ordinary business of the
council was proceeded with.
The question of remuneration of
the engineer who had been engaged to report on the sewerage
system for the city was taken up
and the following resolution passed
'* That the sum of $350 be paid to
H. S. Hancock. C. E., for his services in connection with a report
of a sewerage system for the city."
The mayor announced that the
annual convention of the Union of
B. C. Municipalities would be held
at Victoria on November 15th and
16th. His worship the mayor and
the city clerk Mr. G. H. Dunn were
appointed delegates.
The meeting then adjourned un-
till Monday next at 10 a. m.
Although the story of Kelowna's
industries during tne past few years
has been one of remarkable growth
and development, in none is this
fact more strikingly verified than
in the case of the Kelowna Cannery.
There is nothing, of course, unnatural in this. Fruit and vegetable growing and canning factories
are everywhere inseparably connected, and, indeed, more or less
dependent upon each other. With
the ever-increasing acreage in the
Kelowna district devoted to fruitgrowing, and the wonderful productiveness of the soil, it is not
surprising that each succeeding
year places greater demands than
ever upon the packing-houses and
the cannery.
Notwithstanding that the Kelowna Canning Co. only last year,
left their old premises on Abbott
Street and erected a large new
building near the C.P.R. tracks,
already their business has outgrown
the new works, and still greater
accommodation will have to be
provided in the near future.
The season for canning is necessarily short and this year has been
shorter than most, ln spite of this
the cannery has managed to put up
something over a thousand tons of
vegetables and fruit, including
tomatoes, beans, pumpkins, apples,
pears, peaches and corn.
For the latter a new plant has
been installed this year, and though
from lack of room has not been
operated to its full extent, the produce of some seventy-five acres
has been handled. This will no
doubt be greatly increased next
An important branch of the business is the mineral water department. This has been already
crowded out of the new building,
the plant having been moved back
to the old premises and greatly
added to.
A new departure is also to be
developed in the shape of the
manufacture of vinegar, ketchup,
cider and pickles. An expert in
these lines has been procured from
the States, and new plant is being
installed. The impoitanc: of this
branch is that it can be carried on
in the off season when regular
canning is at a standstill. A special
line of ketchup known as the
" Blue Funnel," to the excellence
of which we can personally testify,
has already been placed upon the
market, and it is expected that this
Okanagan production will compete
successfully with anything from
the American side.
A look over the plant of the
cannery in company with the manager, Mr. Fraser, revealed the fact
that some of the very latest
machinery used by the canning
industry is here included. Mr.
Fraser made a tour of inspection
last year of the principal centres of
the States for the manufacture of
such machinery, and the result is
a plant which is second to none.
The systemused is what is known
as the " ttavless conveyor system,"
the fruit being received at the
unloading platform and passed
through the various processes without a pause or loss of time from
unnecessary handling.
In the case of tomatoes, after
scalding and skinning, the fruit is
placed in what is known as a Colbert Rotary Filler. This machine
which works at a great speed, is
capable of filling 75 cans per minute, or 4,500 per hour. Running
as it has been this year, night and
day, this means an enormous output from this machine alone. From
the filler the cans are automatically
carried to the wiper, which takes
any surplus from the outside.
Continuing their course they pass
a counter which keeps a record of
the production.
At this stage the small metal caps
which close the apertures at the top
of the cans are placed in position.
The next process is the solde.ring of
these caps in   position,

Mount View Methodist Church
held its thanksgiving services last
Sunday, Rev. F. Hardy, M.A., of
Summerland, preached in the morning and Rev. W. Vance, B.A., in
the evening. The congregation
most generously responded to the
appeals of the trustees by making
a freewill offering of about $300,
which amount added to the Ellison
donations made a record collection
of $350.00. Rev. W. Vance, the
pastor, expressed himself as more
than pleased and especially noted
the number of small donations,
which showed that the congregation as a whole took part in the
pleasure of giving thanks.
The choir supplied special and
appropriate music. Mr. J. Hall
sang a solo : " Angels ever bright

Former B.C. Finance

Halloween Social
The prophesies expressed
the leaders of the Methc
Church Epworth League that all
who joined were assured of a good
time, are already being more than
fulfilled, and an exceedingly pleasant evening was spent by about
forty young people at the home of
Mrs. Geo.Thompson on Halloween.
A bright moonlight walk of about
a mile in the sharp frosty evening,
and the warm, welcome blaze of a
large yule-log fire left their marks
in flushed faces and bouyant spirits
and under the careful supervision
of Miss Birdie Thompson (who
acted as hostess) and Mr. W. E.
Adams, the evening passed like
the proverbial greased lightning
To Mrs. Thompson are due the
best thanks of all for her kindly
invitation and the young people
are reminded that the League
means a profitable homely hour
each Monday evening, beginning
at 8 o'clock sharp.
James Douglas Prentice, former
finance minister in the Dunsmuir
and Prior governments of British
Columbia,, died Wednesday at
Lillooet, B.C.
The late Mr. Prentice was widely
known both in legislative and commercial circles in this province.
Although a native of Scotland he
had lived in Canada most of his
life, and in British Columbia for
over twenty years, during which
he was manager of the Western
Canadian Ranching Company.
Mr. Prentice's political career was
confined altogether to this province. He was first elected to the
legislature of B.C. during the
general election of 1899, and was
re-elected two years later. His
ability was recognized in 1901 by
his appointment to the position of
provincial secretary, and he was '
the same year made finance
minister. He held this portfolio
for two years, after which he gave
up politics to devote all his time to
'Mr. Prentice was .born at " The
Grange, Lanarkshire, Scotland, in
1861. the son of Andrew Prentice..
Hewas educated at Fettes College,
Edinburgh. He came tc Canada
as an official ot the Bank of British
North America, and was first employed at Halifax. He was transferred to Victoria in 1888, but
resigned to assume the position of
managing director of the Western
Canadian Ranching Company,
which he held till his death.
Coal Strike Ended
hermetically sealing the contents
of the can. This is accomplished
by a complicated machine known
as the Hawkins Capper. As the
cans enter the machine they meet
with little twirling brushes which
apply just sufficient acid to make
the solder adhere. A long row
of cans are soldered at a time, the
solder being fed in strips. The
entire process is automatic and
The sealed cans of fruit are then
piled into iron baskets and lifted
by overhead cranes into huge boilers, where the cooking is performed.
The whole process eliminates
handling almost entirely, and is
cleanly and wholesome to a -degree. '
A strange sight is the slacks and
mountains of thousands and thousands of filled cans awaiting labelling and shipment.
Like all other industries in the
city the cannery has been seriously
inconvenienced by the shortage of
cars. Though the GP.R. tug and
barge has been working all along
at high pressure, it seems utterly
unable to cope with the demand
for cars, and it is hoped that something will be done to remedy this
before another season.

Hayes' account of bis flrst visit to a

be was pressed to eat,
"This." says Hayes, "was an invitation which 1 feared, but now (bat it

thanks was one of tbe few in their
language tbat I knew, and 1 made tbe
most of this. Tbey laughed heartily
when I said Uoyenalt In reply to their
inviiarion. and immediately a not very
'beautiful, young damsel poured some
of the contents ot the pots tnio a skin

sure, as I supposed, that it was not

'Three Sheets In the Wind."
"What wa* the origin of tbe phrase
for drunkenness, 'three sheets in the
wind? " a lamUniiin asked n sailor tbe
other day "Weil." said tbe sailor.
"I'll'explain that matter to you The
two lower corners of ia ship s sail are
held taut by two ropes, oue called a
tack and another called a sheet. Tbe
tack is always kept Very tight, but
the sheet is loosened according to tbe
wind, and the looser the sheet is the
more freely the sail swings. If tbe
sail is quite 'free Its sheet Is said to
be in* the •wind' Now.-suppose that
all three of a ship's sails were quite
free.. They would tben fly about very
crnzily. and the ^sbip would wabble.
The course of the ship'would be a zigzag one, and the reason for this would
be that she bad 'three sheets In the
wind." Tbat. I guess, is why a mau
wben he rlgzags in bis course Is said
to be 'three sheets In the wind' also."

the candidate: "if you please, we will
not leave It- yet." and proceeded to
pour forth a fresh stream. The deau

Dr. Sproule, the New Speaker
It has been announced by the
Prime Minister, that Dr. T. S.
Sproule, M. P. for East Grey, will
be the government candidate for
Speaker of the House. While not
officially announced, it is generally
understood that Mr. P. E. Blondin,
M. P. for Champlain, will be Deputy Speaker, and that Senator Landry will be Speaker for the Senate.
The choice of Dr. Sproule for
Speaker will be hailed with satis
faction by all the members of the
House, irrespective of party. He
has been a member of the House
continuously since 1878, his only
seniors in service being Hon. John
Haggart and Sir Wilfrid Laurier.
He is familiar with the rules of the
House, and will make an admirable
Duke of  Connaught to Visit
British Columbia
Hon. Martin Burrell stated, the
other day at the coast, " It may be
of public interest to know that H.
R. H. the Duke of Connaught, in
whose presence I had the honor
of being the first minister to take
the oath of office, informed me on
that occasion that both he and his
wife were deeply affected at the
kind messages of congratulation
which reached them from British
Columbia on their arrival at Quebec. His highness added that these
voluntary expressions of good will
were even more numerous than
from any other portion of the Dominion and, he said, he hoped,
with the duchess, to pay a visit to
British Columbia at the earliest
possible moment. This event will
probably take place some time
next year.
Lumber Cut in British
Columbia During
The rapid exploitation of lumber
in British Columbia, is increasing
yearly and almost made this province the equal of Ontario in point
of lumber production during 1910
Statistics of the Dominion lumber cut for 1910. collected by the
Forestry Branch of the Department
of the interior state that one billion,
six hundred and twenty million
feet of lumber, worth nearly twenty
five million dollars was cut in Brit
ish Columbia in 1910. As a result
of greatly increased cutting in the
fir and cedar forests, the total
amount cut was more than doubled
in one year. In 1909 the British
Columbia cut constituted one-fifth
of the total; in 1910 the proportion
formed by the western province
was one-third, and it lacked only
forty-five million feel of surpassing
the cut in Ontario.
Seven important softwoods make
up over 99 pel cent, of the cut in
British Columdia-douglas fir, cedar,
western yellow pine, tamarack,
spruce, hemlock and jack-pine
Nearly forty-five per cent, of the
total was made up by douglas fir.
This species was cut in 1910 to
the extent of nearly seven hundred
and twenty million feet, and had
the largest actual increase shown
by any species^-an increas of nearly
two hundred and fifty million feet
Cedar composed one-fifth of the
total and was the second wood in
magnitude of cut. The three hundred and fifteen million feet of
this species cut was an increase of
two hundred and seventeen million
feet over the 1909 production.
The cut of yellow pine, amounting
to one hundred and eighty-three
million feet, was nearly six times
as much as the amount cut in 1909.
and was sufficient to raise it from
fourteenth to sixth-place in importance among the lumber producing
trees of Canada.
The London " Express " sa>s that
Premier Asquith is to be elevated
to the peerage before the opening
ofthe 1912 session of parliament,
and that Lloyd George is to become the leader of the House of
Points About Storing
The firsf point in ensuring good
keeping qualities in roots is to get
the roots as clean as possible and
to get them into the root house
when cool. 1 have seen roots come
into the root house when very
warm, and such roots keep badly ;
but when we put them in cool thev
almost invariably keep exceedingly
It is important, further, to ventilate the root house ; especially is
this the case if we have a low-lying
warm root house, where the walls
are, for the most part.under ground.
Under such conditions it is almost
essential to have some method of
inlroducing air into the lower part
of the house. The air passes up
and out through the top. A good
way to ventilate isiby holes in the
sides of the walls, through which
pipes lead. You do not want the
warm air to escape too rapidly or
the cold air to enter too freely.
Turnips do not keep quite as
well as mangels. Turnips require
a little more attention  in  storing.
We   have  to   be
careful to keep
possible. If the
little bit on the
no   harm   done.
them as cool as
turnips freeze a
surface there is
Frozen turnips are quite acceptable
to almost all classes of cattle,
especially sheep, cows or steers,
and more or less to swine. We
object to putting turnips fn the bin
frozen if the temperature in the
root house is apt to be high.
To enable the air to penetrrte
through the roots 1 would take a
shaft about a foot in diameter and
join it to a box of boards running
along the bottom of the root house
In this lower shaft 1 would bore
holes two inches in diameter along
the side and have this perforated
staft go out to the end of the root
house and up to the ceiling and
out there. Then the air will come
in and fall down the first tube and
then work along.—J. H. Grisdale

Official returns received in
Ottawa from all but twenty-five
Dominion constituencies give the
new Borden administration a popular majority of 37,893, as compared with 24,853 received by
the Laurier government in 1908.
The total vote, so far as completed,
is 569,670 Conservatives to 531,-
896 Liberals. It is probable, that
the popular majority as indicated
above may be somewhat reduced
because the missing .constituencies
include six in Alberta nnd three in
Saskatchewan carried by the opposition by large majority.
A new feature in orcharding in
Ontario, and an important one, is

Railway Commission
to be Divided
One of the first executive acts of
the new government will be the
introduction of a bill providing for
the division of the Railway commission into two branches. The
present board, or part of it, will
likely remain in existence with its
sphere of influence confined to
eastern Canada. There will be a
western division established with
headquarters at Winnipeg to look
e fter all western cases. The names
of Alex. Haggart of Winnipeg, and
M. S. McCarty of Calgary, are mentioned in connection with the new
board. This second board was
promised by Mr. R. L Borden during his western tour. A bill will
be introduced at this session which
will be called next spring.
A good deal of comment has
been created'by the disappearance
of .the " Dei Gratia " from'the Canadian coinage this year. The peculiarity.is shared by all the copper
and silver coins struck off in the
mint this year. No gold coins have
been struck off so far in 1911,
though the apparatus for so doing
is in a forward state. The dies
for these coins have the " Dei gratia." If further is the case that
next year's coins will have the
stately and reverent old motto restored. 'V
The cause of the omission is
an inadvertence on the part of the
authorities of the British mint. The
dies were prepared in England,
and it was there that the mistake
was made. They arrived early in
the year. The situation in which
the department of finance found
itself with regard to the matter was
that for one thing Canada was under a substantial obligation to the
British authori.ies in the matter,
and for another that there was
acute need for currency.

What One Man's Patient Effort Wrung
From a Desert In France.
Iu the southwest of France, between
tbe rivers Adour and Garonne, are
loug stretches of pine woods, green
and cool.
Where these pines now stand was a
barren waste in tbe middle of the last
century. Sun and wind vied with each
other in making tbe land drier and
dustier. Over the stormy bay of Biscay came winds that set up great
sandstorms' and sometimes burled
whole villages. The whole region was
one ot hopelessness and despair. Fate
was against it.
But finally tbere came a man who
acknowledged fate only as something
to be overcome. This man, one Bre-
montior. was an inspector of roads.
Me begau fencing iu the desert He
built a fence and behind it planted
broom seeds. Behind the broom seeds
He put seeds of the pine. The fence
protected the broom seeds, and the
broom grew. Then the broom in its
turu afforded shelter to tbe delicate
piue shoots.
Soon the pines spread, and their
tough roots bound the sandy soil together. The first step was accomplished. Then canals were made to drain
the wet parts aud carry water to the
dry. •.
Thus did one man by patient effort
turn a dreary desert into a home for
an industrious and healthy population.
It waa nn instance of triumph over
fate.-New York Tribune.
The Business of Life.
Life Is a business we are all apt to
mismanage, either living recklessly
from day to day or suffering ourselves
to be gulled out of our moments by the
Inanities of. custom. We should despise a man who gave as little activity
and forethought to the conduct of any
other business. But in this, which is
the one tbing of all others, since It
contains tbem all. we cannot see the
forest for rhe trees; One brief Impression obliterates another. There is
something stupefying in the recurrence
of unimportant things, and It Is only
on rare provocations that we can rise
to take an outlook beyond dally concerns and comprehend the narrow limits and great possibilities of our existence.- Robert Louis Stevenson.

Try a Little Self Hypnotism on Your
Pet Weaknesses.
In a large eastern city is a professional hypnotist who hajj a wide reputation for curing tbe habit of intemperance.   His method is dirt simple.
"There Is no real hypnotism about it
—unless it is a matter of self hypnotism," this professor once said. "1
simply observe the mind process of the
man that drinks and advise him how
to reverse it. The subconscious soliloquy in the mind of the man that
drinks runs something like this:
'When did I have my last ball?
Whew! Long as that! I don't see how
I stood it so long. Wouldn't bave
thought it possible.' $And so on tbe
victim repeats to himself on the principle that he needs this periodical
stimulant just as it is necessary to
heap coal on to Ore to keep it from
burning out. ln a word, that man self
hypnotizes himself into the belief tbat
be needs a drink.
"My advice to cure this craving is
not to fight the appetite, but to fight
down the cause that leads to the appetite. Let a man repeat to himself
"over and over again: '1 really don't
need this drink, lr 1 take tt. It's simply a matter of pouring so much down
my throat superfluously, for 1 could
get along without.' Before long he
will be surprised bev instead ot byp-
notizing himself into drink be will
hypnotize himself out of It."

Looking out of his window in a hotel oue bleak wintry morning in the

gar sitting barefooted on tne sioue
steps below His bean was moved
with., compassion, and he hegan lo
search for a pair of shoes. He found
two pairs, one of them uew.
"Do not give I lie new pair away:
you will need tbem yourself." urged
his prudent wife.
"No." said the sculptor. "I shall find
tbe old pair more comfortable    More

So he hurried downstairs and put the

Lakes of Elood.
The name Latent Blooa or Its equivalent has beeu given to pmces ns tal"
apart as England and South America.
"Sanguel:ic"-i. e„ the Lake of
Blood - was tbe name given by the victorious Normans to the battlefield at
Hastings, where the Saxons were overthrown aud slain with terrible carnage.
For a similar reason Lake Traslmene
has borne the mime "Sangiuetto" because Its waters were reddened during
the second runic"war by the blood of
some 15.000 itomans who felj before
the troops of Hauuibal.

The Donkey's Head.
Among the most extraordinary pieces
of symbolism known to have been used
by the early Asiatics was n figure of a

of the deity. There is no doubt whatever tbat the same emblem was once
used among the Hlttites. tbe Egyptians
and one or two other nations as a symbol of their red god. Sut. Tbe superstition of the yellow donkey of India,
the story of the swift ass of eastern
Asia and the ass of Dlonyslus and
many other marvelous ass stories are
all survivals of that curious form of
religious worship the adoration of th*
ass' head.

Some queer runaways are seen
from time to time in various places
says the " Armstrong Advertiser."
but the incident witnessed that our
reporter witnessed the - other day
was .most comical to aay the least
of it. A mare and foal, the pro*
perty of Mr. Foreman of the Big
Store, were turned out for exercise
in his grounds at Rosedale and in
fooling about got mixed up in the
tennis net. It seems it got its head
through one end and carried the
whole thing off minus the posts.
It got some scared and of course
made for its mother, but the old
horse when she saw this apparition
approaching dressed in fine net
that looked like a bridal veil, bolted
and sailed through the gates. The
foal and its appendage attached
tried to get to the mother, and the
mare was bound it would not get
there, so the faster the mare travelled the faster the foal went too.
After making a tour of the town
and finding the object could not be
shaken off, both were eventually
headed off into a lane and the
mare caught.' The foal having
been relieved of the veil aforementioned was again recognized by
its fond parent, and all was peace
once more.
