Ratepayers Meet to Discuss
Money By-laws
Four By-laws to Borrow Sums Amounting to $29,000 to be
Voted on Next Tuesday
Farewell to Mr. I. Mawhinney
On Monday night after a , late
supper in Raymer's Hall in connection with L.O.L. 1870, the "meeting was cancer to oruer, anu the
attention of the large number present was directed by the Chaplain
to the sorrowful fact that they were
that night called to say good-bye
to the oldest member of the association in Kelowna.
On behalf of the fraternity, Mr.
R. Copeland handed Mr. Mawhinney a neatly bound copy of the
scriptures, the remark being made
at the same time as to the suitableness of the gift to him, who prized
the Bible so highly, which .was a
charter of a nation's liberty.
The recipient responded with
much feeling in his own patriarchal
and felicitous manner. Kindly references were made by speakers to
Mr. Mawhinney's worth, not only
to the Orange Lodge to which he
had been an "inspiration," but because of the efforts he had put
forth " to guide the feet of others
into the way of peace."
He was described by one as
having been "a good neighbor, a
kind friend, a genial companion,
an able citizen, a wise councellor
and a father in Israel." He had
won the respect of all because he
fulfilled the Soloman's description-
" the hoary head is a crown of
glory, if it be found in the way
of righteousness."
' A largei number were at the boat
in the morning to say good-bye to
Mr. Mawhinney and family, who
was commencing his journey to
The public meeting called by the
city council to discuss the four
money by-laws which are to be
voted upon next Tuesday was held
in Raymer's Hall Tuesday evening
some seventy or eighty ot the ratepayers attending. Hi8 Worship the
Mayor, Mr. D. W. Sutherland occupied the chair, and briefly announced the object of the meeting.
One of the by-laws, he said, was
to borrow $ 1,000 to build an implement shed, for the housing of
the took and implements owned
by the city. Personally he thought
the amount was rather small, and
did not see how the board of Works
could expect to build much of a
shed for that sum. It was, however, from considerations of economy that the amount had been
kept low.
Another by-law was in connection with the water and light department, and aimed at borrowing
$5,000 to pay for certain extension-
At the present time both undertakings were paying their way,; in fact
were more than paying. The
plant and extensions wefe^ earning
sufficient to pay interest and sinking fund on all the debentures, and
the. city as a whole would not be
called upon to contribute anything
from the general revenue. The
extensions made and proposed
wete very necessary. The water
especially was very much wanted
both in the way of a general service to householders, and os a. protection from, fire to the citv at large.
The tyy-.law'might have beeni?sub-
mitted earlier, but the counciLhad
been unwilling to incur the exjjgjnse

oi two elections, when .one ,qauld
be made to serve by deferring the
matter. As a result it had been
necessary to expend in advance
some of the $5,000"asked for.
The principal by-law was to borrow money fo purchase land which
would be needed inthe future/foy
a sewerage system, and at present
for use in connection with the
scavenging system..
The council had, during the present year, devoted a great deal of
time to the matter of a sewerage
system for the city. A large amount bf information had been secured and compiled for the use of
future councils. Not all of the information thus secured had been
made public, but after much consideration the council had come to
the conclusion that the best system
of disposal bf the sewage would be
by. means of a sewage farm ; that
it would be more economical, and
cheaper to instal. There were
three reports on the matter at present before the council, one from a
prominent authority at the coast,
and two - from local men. The
outside engineerhad favored the
idea of septic tanks as a means of
disposal, and had estimated the
cost at about $36,000. This wa?
excluding the cost of pumping, as
it made no difference what system
was adopted, whether septic tanks
or sewage farm, the sewage would
have to be pumped. By employing a farm the cost of the disposal
plant would be greatly reduced.
The land itself would cost only
$ 12,000; then there would be necessary a delivery pipe, which would
not be a very expensive item.
Referring to the cost of the land
it was proposed to purchase, the
Mayor eontinued, the lease on jhe
land at present used by the scavenger ran out in the spring. If the
land now offered was not purchased, the new council would then
be up against the purchase of sufficient ground for the scavenger's
purpose. . This land would be
difficult to get, and might moreover
be very expensive, They would
have to hetve such a place, and
would not likely get off for less
than $5,000. Deducting this cost
from the price of the land it was
desired to purchase, left only a
small extra outlay to secure a site
for a future sewage farm.
The council, he pointed out, were
not asking for money for a sewerage system, but only for land which
some time would be required, and
which in any case they had con- j
sidered it necessary to secure.
In most places-all the expense of
a sewerage system was paid by the
persons directly benefited. In
Vernon, for instance, the whole
cost of septic tanks, land, etc., was
charged as a local improvement,
and none out of the general revenue of the city. Probably a better plan was to have the city, as a
whole, buy the land and bear the
expense of a sewage farm and delivery pipe, and anything over that
to charge to the persons benefited.
Thus all the cost which the city
would be Called upon to meet
would be about $30,000 or $35,000.
1 he rest of the money would be
r.ised by way of local improvement debentures, in the same way
as money was obtained for sidewalks. •        "
The fourth by-law, continued the
Mayor, was in reference to the purr
chase of the remaining part of the
park, consisting of some three-
tenths of an acre at the north-east
corner. The question was one,
said the Mayor, which the city was
hot pressing at all. The council
had thought it 'necessary to give
the people a chance to buy the
land if they wanted it. The matter had come to a head while he
had been away at the coast, and
in connection with it some reflec-
tions had been cast upon Mr. D.
Lloyd-Jones, the owner of the land.
The latter had in consequence of
what had been said, expressed his
willingness to let the city have a
chance of buying; and bad made
the necessary arrangements with
the party who held an option upon
the property;. Iri making the kind
bffeVMr. Lloyd-Jones had reduced [_,'
the price.to the city by $5,000,
Mr. D. Lloyd-Jones, who was
present, spoke 'briefly in explanation. He sold the lot to Mr. De
Hart for a much higher figure, but
owing to what had been said, he
had been willing to' let the city
have a chance to buy it. He was
not anxious, howevir, to sell it to
the city.. It would be a good thing
to have a new hotel, and by the
exchange proposed the promenade
would be kept open. He spoke
with some indignation of the foolish
slanders" which had been going
around..Some people had actually
said they did not know the corner
waa being reserved when the park
was sold to the city, whereas the
matter had been fully and publicly
discussed at the time. He had arranged to sell the land at the time
to a local syndicate for $30,000, but
had offered it to the city for $1000
less. The syndicate, of which he
himself was one, had had the property subdivided, showing some
$60,000 to $70,000 worth of lots.
He had offered, if the city were
not satisfied, to buy the property
back again fbr$40,000 and pay 5
per cent, interest from the time of
its purchase.
Mayor Sutherland said the council at least fully understood and
appreciated the kindness pf Mr.
Lloyd-Jones' offer, and the sacrifices he was making. They had
felt it their duty tb give the people
a chance to say whether they would
buy the land or not.
• Mr. F. R. E. DeHart spoke on
his hotel project. He emphasized
the need for more and better accommodation for the city. The
site was ideal fbr the purpose. He
was no hotel man, and had no big
thing to n.ake out of the scheme.
He had "been pushing the thing for
the good of the town. His agreement with Mr. Lloyd-Jones in purchasing the corner had been to
erect not less than a $100,000
hotel. He had gone to the coast
tb interest money in the scheme,
bu{ when he had received the telegram asking him to withdraw his
option, he had had no definite
plan to offer.
" The hotel matter continued to
hold the discussion for some time,
when the subject was changed by
Mr. Parkinson speaking' on the
sewage system.
He had gone carefully into the
matter, he said, and had consulted
all available authorities, and come
to the conclusion that the only
available means of disposal for the
city was a sewage farm, for which
it was necessary to purchase a site.
Personally, he did not "altogether
favor the lots mentioned in the bylaw, but preferred the adjoining
lots. This, however, was a matter
of detail, which could be arranged
later. It was advisable to purchase
the land while, it could be got for
the low price of $200 per acre.
It was obvious that as. soon as it
was drained and put to use it
would be worth at least $400.
He went at some length into the
benefits which the city would derive from a sewerage system. The
present opportunity of acquiring
land for the farm should be taken.
It would be then up to the council
to consider plans for installing the
Questions were asked and answered as(to the nature of the soil,
and the suitability of the land for
the system. It seemed to be the
opinion of all who had carefully
examined the place that it was eminently suitable for a sewage farm.
Mr. J. B. Whitehead asked if the
land was not too near the city to
allpw for extension. He also expressed the feaY that the enormous
cost of the sewerage system, considering the scattered houses,
would be prohibitive. Mr. Parkinson thought that the increase in
value of property served bv the
sewers, would pay for the installation many times over.
The greater part of the evening
was devoted to the discussion of
various phases of the sewage system, and the purchase of the land
named in the by-law was strongly
recommended by several speakers.
Aid. Leckie spoke on the by-law
respecting water and light extension. About one-third of the five-
thousand had been spent already
in extending the waterworks, which
the city would have to pay whether
or not. There need be no uneasiness on  that score,, however.
English Church Bazaar
Substantial Sum Raised for
Building Fund
The bazaar held under the auspices of the Women's Auxiliary
and Chancel Guild of St. Michael's
Church last Saturday proved a
great success. The ladies in charge
of the different stalls had worked
with great enthusiasm and the hall
presented a most charming effect
of prettily blended colors.
Mrs. Hewetson in charge of the
sweetstall, with Mrs. Rees and
Mrs. Crawford won first prize , for
the prettiest decorated stail. Mrs.
Barlee had charge of the " fancy
stall" assisted by Mrs. R. Jones
and Mrs. Crowley. The scheme
of the decoratons was in mauve
and yellow, making a beautiful
show of color.
Mrs. Greene presided over the
Chancel Guild stall, where quantities of dainty and useful handkerchiefs, ties and collars were
Mrs. Chapmnn was in charge of
the plain work stall assisted by
Mrs. Ransom, Mrs. Scott, and Mrs
Khurler, and realized a good sum
of money.
The Baby's stall was presided
over by Mrs. Fettier assis ed by
her little daughter, and proved a
very attractive booth.
Afternoon lea in charge of Mrs'.
James and Mrs. . Matheson was
daintily served at small tables, the
waiting being done by the young
ladies of the Chancel Guild.
The fish pond and bran pie, in
charge of Mrs. McCullough assisted
by the Misses Cross, Ransom and
Greene, proved a most popular attraction for the youugsters and did

Asked by Mr. Whitehead, when
the city might expect power during
the day, Mr. Lecljiie: said that the
difficulty in the way was the many
incandescent lamps used in street
lighting. Until some means was
provided of switching these off
during the day, the generatorscould
not be run.
Aid. Copeland advised the bor-
owing of $1000 for an implement
shed. The city had accumulated
a good many tools and valuable
implements which should be kept
under lock and key.
Mr. Parkinson thought the
amount rather small. He wondered whether it would not be advisable to turn the fire hall into an
implement shed, and build a better
fire hall.
As interest in the by-laws seem-
source of amusement.

of the afternoon, got up by Mrs.
DuMoulin. 26 babies were enter-

and interested audience what a
sturdy, splendid lot of children
flourish in the Sunny Okanagan.
They were divided into four
classes. The difficult positions' of
judges were ably filled by Captain
Brush and Mr. Lionl Taylor, who
proved themselves most efficient
and popular.

The annual'general meeting of
the Agricultural and Trades Association was held last Thursday. The
attendance was rather small. Owing to the absence of the president
Mr. P. DuMoulin, the vice-president, Mr. W.C. Blackwood, took

Mr. H. H. Millie (the owner of

would rather 'see the city take over
the present system than run chances of having a dual system, as had
been suggested recently bv the application of the Okanagan Telephone Company. He pointed out
the tremendous disadvantages of
duplicating poles and wires, and
the necessity which business men
would be under of paying double
rates in order to be connected with
both systems. If it came to turning
over his system to the city, he had
no wish to make a big thing out of
it. He would only ask for a square
deal. He had made it pay, and he
had no doubt the city could do
the same.

Interesting Series of Lectures
During Week
Some interesting meetings have'
been held during the week past in
connection with the Farmers' Institute at various points throughout
the country.
One of ihe visiting lecturers was
the Rev. W. E. Dunham, an expert
poultry man who has for some
years rendered valuable service to
the Department of Agriculture in
that important branch of its work,
Mr. Dunham, besides being a most
able speaker, is thoroughly master
ox his' sUDJectr "ine ^nrormarion-
he had to give was distinctly firsi-
ihand, and the result of years of
study and experiment. His talks
on the various phases of poultry
keeping, natural and artificial incubation and brooding, feeding,
Housing, marketing etc., weie listened to with keen interest
Three years ago Mr Dunham
visited the district, and expresses
himself as very agreeably surprised
at the many evidences of progress
and development both in the town
and district.
The other lecturer was Mr.
Cowan, a prominent authority on
general farming from Vancouver
Island. Mr. Cowan, who was supplying in place of Dr. Medd, who
had been prevented by some circumstances from fulfilling his engagement, has been reared in agricultural matters for over half-e-
cehtury, and what he does not
know about farming has not y t
been found out. He had, many
valuable wrinkles to impart on 6oil
cultivation, crops, live stock feeding and management, and in the
general economy of the farm.
The first meeting of the series
was held at Ellison, where, in spite
of the very short time given for
announcement, there was a good
attendance. This was followed by
a meeting at Rutland on Friday,

No little sensation was caused
in town Monday by a rumor which
seems to have originated in Revelstoke or Vernon, that Germany

Although rumors of trouble between the two countries are only too

been no foundation for this one.
A war between Great Britain and
a powerful nation like the Germans
would be a tremendous world disaster and one which it is hoped all
civilization would unite to avert.

Cooperage Industry
The production of slack cooperage is a much greater industry in
Canada than tight cooperage, which
is due to the shortage of Canada's
hardwood lumber  supply   and to
the fact that there is very little timber   now   growing   in   Canada   of
sufficiently   fine   quality   to   make
barrels for  the containing   of oils
and liquors.    The Forestry Branch
of the Department of the   Interior
states that reports from 133  cooperage plants in  Canada show that
over four-fifths   of the  total value
of cooperage produced in Canada
during    1910   was   cou posed   of
slack cooperage.    The  total value
of the slack cooperage stock was
$1,395,545 and was  made up  as
follows:—104,821,000 slack staves
worth $736,960 ; 9,860,000 sets of
slack heading worth $330,480 ; and
38,244,000 hoops worth $328,105.
In the manufacture of slack staves
in  1910, fourteen kinds   of wood
were used, for one of which, elm,
a production of over sixty million
staves was reported, and for six of
which  (beech, Cottonwood,   hemlock, pine, oak and cedar) a  total
of less than two million was reported.    Although  the   proportion   of
four-fifths of the total formed by
elm and spruce is the same  as in
1909, spruce   is  slowly becoming
more important as a  stave wood.
Over two million more   pieces of
spruce were produced in 1910 and
five million elm staves less than in
1919.    Every species of wood used
in stave production except cotton-
wood and  cedar was used in the
production   of  heading,   as  short
lengths and pieces not suitable for
staves can be readily used for  this
purpose.    The  percentage   of the
heading manufactured from   each
of the heading species was:—bass-
wood, 37.7 per  cent; poplar 19.3
per cent; spruce 14.7 per cent and
elm   10.7  per  cent.   Elm   is  the
principal   hoopwood, contril >uting
in 1910 over four-fifths of the total.
Over a million hoops each of spruce
a-'d   poplar  were   produced, and
with elm form nine-tenths  of the
hoops manufactured.    More elm is
used in Canada for the  manufacture of slack barrels than for lumber.

Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Fleming re-
turned from the prairie last Friday.
The first skating party of the
season took place last Saturday
evening on the lake by Mc Arthur's
barn. The LeFevre Bros, collected
the party in their new auto ar>d
judging from the shouts and laughter, eveiyone enjoyed the pastime.
The opening session of the,Rutland Literary Institute will be held
in the public hall, on Saturday
evening next, Dec. 9, commencirg
at 8 p.m. The Rev. D. J. Welsh «
!o give a lecture, entitled : "Th"
value of the Study of Literature,"
and the chair will be occupied by

invitation is given to all.
We are sorry to learn ih*t Miss
McGee intends to sever her connection with the Black Mountain
School at the end of this term.
This is made necessary by her intention to continue her studies.
She has been one ofthe most painstaking and careful teachers we
have had, and everyone is sorry t >
lose her.
A skating party of young people
gathered together Tuesday night,
for the Rutland "lakes," after which
they drove down to Mrs. S. Sproul's
for supper.
A song service is to be given at
the Methodist Church Sunday evening next, fifteen minutes befoi e the
o dinary service. Good music and
a good sermon will be, highly appreciated by the Rutland people
and this is what is being provided'
The Baptist services have been
postponed until spring, the drive
from town and the cost of horse
hire, being found to be too much
during the winter season.
It is to be hoped that some effort will now be made to form
some kind of an adult class for
Sunday afternoons, a strong desire
for such has been voiced by many
on different occasions.

The Honeymoon Trail
Next week the patrons of the
Opera House will have the opportunity of seeing that funniest of all
musical farce comedies, "The
Honeymoon Trail", as the opening
bill with the Sherman-Cleveland
Opera Co., who will appear Monday, Tnesday and Wednesday Dec.
1 I th, 12th,and 13th. This music. 1
playlet has been one/ of the most
popular tv^r touring the country.
It was an instantaneous hit at the
La Salle Theatrr .Chicago, vh *re it
was produced h r the first time
four years ago. After the long run
in Chicago it was taken to New
York and Boston, playing over a
year in these two places alone.
For the present tour, managers
Sherman and Cleveland have provided a most excellent cast, chorus,
costuming and scenic environment,
wh le the entire product'on is in
eve.-y way up to the standard of
any musical show ever playing
through this territory. The management has decided nt veriheless
t ■ play the tour at popular prices,
realizing th; t the public lias been
"two dollared" past the place of
er-durance, and that a big musical
s'iow at one dollar top pr c;s would
be an innovation which would be
welcomed by * 11.-. The bill will be
changed nightly.

The provincial police are searching for a man who attempted to
hold up the customs officer at Osoyoos one night last week. The
contractors for the Penticton sec-
tion of the K. V. railway paid $500
duty on a number of horses they
shipped through. At midnight the
officer was awakened bv a man
trying to push, open his bedroom
door. Quietly taking down a double
barrelled shot gun, he threatened
to shoot, when the burglar disappeared.—Penticton Herald.
On Thursday night, November
30th a highly successful meeting
was held in the School room under
the auspices of the Farmers' Institute, when Mr. Collins lectured on
general farming, and the Rev. Mr.
Dunham on poultry raising.
Mr. M. Hereron who occupied
the chair, introduced the gentlemen
in his usual felicitous manner, and
Mr. Collins who spoke first, gave a
very interesting and instructive address. He particularly emphasised
the need of a comfortable house,
good water and laborsaving devices in the kitchen. The worthy
gentlemen not only possesses a
most comprehensive knowledge of
farming and the various troubles
connected therewith, but he also
possesses an intimate knowledge
of what is required to lighten the
labors of the ladies of the household, a subject usually neglected
by the majority of farmers.
The Rev. Mr. Dunham gave a
most interesting talk on poultry,
and evidently gave every satisfac-
faction by his lucid replies to ^ the
many varied questions that were
asked, even the one asked by a
fair and blushing maid as to the
cause of a hen eating nails.
At the close of the proceedings
a hearty vote of thanks was proposed by Mr. M. Hereron and seconded by Mr. T. Bulman and
unanimously carried.
We hope to h_vv6 these gentlemen visit us again and that earlier
-notification of the meeting be given
us than was the case on this occasion.

to spend his vacation iu pocket mining and soon added tbat science to his
store of knowledge. It was n halcyon,
happy three months that he lingered
there. One day with Jim Gillis he
was following the specks of gold that
led to a pocket somewhere up the hill
when a chill, dreary rain set in. Jim
was washing and Clemens was carrying water. The "color" became better
aud better as they ascended, and Gillis, possessed with the mining passion,
would have gone on regardless of the
rain. Clemens, however, protested and
declared that each pall of water was
his last. Finally he said in his deliberate, drawling fashion:
"Jim, I wop't carry any more water.
This work is too disagreeable. Let's

went over to Angel's camp, which was
nearer than their own t cabin. The

Handy Guides For Underwriters In
Fixing  Premium  Rates.
Many person-; must have noticed
when making applied I ion for lire insurance tlicit it i* the practice- of the
underwriter lo examine certain maps
before he will |i\ the rate of premium
or accept a risk on Hie property offered. His lithographic-surveys marked off in diagrams of red and yellow
and other coiors are always in evidence, sometimes bound securely in
do/ens of large volumes, on other occasions laid conveniently in piles of
loose slice is-foe handy reference.
Few persons realize, however, ilv.it
these maps contain all the informal ion
which the underwriier desires lo know
about the building he is asked to insure and that in most instances more
matters are explained to lilm by a
single glance than the applicant could
make even though he be the owner of
the property.
As a matter of fact the details set
forth are most explicit. The map-
maker has managed by colors, characters and signs lo give a full description
of the construction, equipment aud occupation of tlie building, everything
which over fifty years of this sort of
surveying has proved to be of any possible interest to the insurance man. It
is so complete, lor instance, that an
agent in New York city can readily
form a good idea id the character of a
risk situated'in some town in Missouri
or California, or. vice versa, agents in
towns iu these western states can likewise tell the character of a risk in
New York city -Cassier's Magazine.
Poising on Nothing.
Away up iu the air. far beyond the
mountain tops, the great condors will
hang poised as motionless "as if perched on solid rock True, their wings
nre outstretched, but even through
glasses not the slightest motion is perceptible. . They remain In this position
for many minutes, sometimes for an
hour, making a careful scrutiny of everything below them in their search
for prey Then, with a slight tilting
of the wings, they flap slowly away,
or, having found what they were seeking, dart like « bullet toward It The
eagle, hawk and other species have
this same faculty of poising apparently on nothing.
In rounding n curve the tendency
of the weight of a train Is invariably
to shift to the outside wheels. To
counteract this tendency the outer rail
of a curve is raised on n higher level
than the Inside, the elevation being
lp an exact proportion to the sharpness of the curve as determined by the
principles of 'engineering. If both
rails of a curved (rack were of exactly
the same,elevation a train would not
dare round it at high speed.

"If   This   Court    Knows   Herself,   and
She Thinks She Do"
We frequently hear the expression,
"If the court knows itself, and it
thinks it does," but few persons are
aware of the origin thereof.
The individual who gave birth to it
was a Pike county Missourian named
Blackburn, who flourished in the west
many years ago.^Hlackbtiru ran away
from home wheu he was a mere boy
and sought his fortune In the west,
where he grew to manhood as an Indian fighter, huuter. trapper and
mountain guide. Although not an educated man, he was possessed of great
acumen, to which wns united a keen
wit. When gold was discovered in
California, Blackburn was one of the
flrst to proceed thither. The miners
as a sort of Joke elected him alcalde,
an office that combined the duties 6_)
mayor and Justice of the peace. The
first case coming before the new alcalde was that of a gambler who while
drunk had ridden his horse over a
young Mexican .womau. She was serf.
ously injured.
The trial took place in the largest
cabin lu the neighborhood. The gambler, who was rich, had retained ablo
counsel to defend bim. Alcade Blackburn called the young woman to the
witness stand. She told a straightforward, honest story. When she had
finished the alcalde peremptorily ended the trial. Tbe attorney for the defendant protested vigorously, but the
alcalde disposed of his protest thus:
"If tills court knows herself, and she
thinks she do, 1 fine you $500 damages
and assess upon you the cost of puttin'
this young woman in good condition."
When asked what he meant by
"good condition" the alcalde replied
that the gambler must pay the doctor's
bills and all other costs of the young
woman's sickness.—Exchange.

Sad Finish of the Career of the Great
Musical Genius.
Late hours, unwearied vigils, everlasting labor, the effects of chills, damp
and exposure, in the hard life he led—
a life alternating between brilliant
passages and the most loathsome
drudgery, between rosy anticipations
of fortune and inevitable and eternal
disappointments—had their effects on
the vigorous constitution of Mozart.
His lamp of life burnt" out untimely.
While still a young man—only thirty-
Dve years old—be fell into ill health,
the symptoms of which were a litful,
restless nervousness, a craving for inordinate excitement and a rapid decay
of the physical si-">dna of his constitution. ^
Unfortunately fur him. in the absence of any strong influence at home
which might keep him in the path of
duty, he was tempted to seek recreation abroad .and tell into the company
of a dissipated"set of men, bauuters
of the theaters and taverns of Vienna;
the chief spirit of whom was one
Schikaneder. a low. coarse man of neither refinement nor talent lu company with this crew-the glorious genius, whose critical state ot beaith demanded the utmost care and attention
from loving hands, flitted night after
night from tavern to tavern in Vienna,
deluding himself with vice under the
idea that he was gathering tbe secret
spirit of brotherhood- for use In his
opera. "The Magic Flute," on which
he at that time was engaged.-ttow-

don't give up the Qrst, not by any
manner of means Nature, humoring
this rapacious bent, bus fitted the lobster and the crab with teeth in their
stomachs, and they swallow their half
masticated food and tiuish the chewing process with tuelr stomachs while
they seize and chew the other thing
that has attracted tlieni Lobsters and
crabs have no teeth In their, mouths.
They chew with xheir claws what they
