Thc  tirst experience     in  Revelstoki*
of tbe war tax-s outlined iu the budget of the Dominion Finance minister
ou  February  11 ib in    the  imposition
of stamp duties on champagnes     and
wines,  which goes into eliect at once.
Instructions  huve   bein   received  by
the inland revenue department ia this
city  in the shape of a schedule,  stating  the  rate   of taxution  on   certain
lines     of   articles and  un   appendix,
which exhaustively itemizes the ramifications of these lines. Stamp duties
j upon  proprietary     and  patent  medi-
tcines  and perfumery  are  not yet      iD
effect.      All   wholesale  liquor   dealers
and hotels will  be re (uired  to     tako
| stock of their supplies and  make application   for  the  stami s required  t->
he affixed to each package.
The following is the rate of taxation on win sand champagnes: Non
sparkling w ties, on ea h bottle ot
package r.entwining up to one quart,
[live cents, with .in additional lire
cuts i n every additional quart of
(ruction of a quart; champagnes and
sparkling win°s, on each bottle or
package containing up to one pint,
'25 cents, with an additional 25 cents
on every additional pint or fraction
of a pint. Wines may be bottled from
a package on which the stump duty
1 as been l aid, but the ! ottles muBt
hoar new stamps; the bottler may recover a drawback to the value ol tho
stump nflixed to the origin il packntro
and he is also entitled to the draw-
hack if he exports, provided he g'ives
two days' notice In writing to tho
Inland  revenue  officer.
The retailers of wines hnve not yet
decided whether there will he a general advance in thc prices. There la
not much demand iu these lean times
for sparkling wines nnd champagnes;
those who buy tin m are generally in
a position to b? able to pay the additional tux. But the non sparkling
wines, such as i.ort, are olt^n sold
by the pint, and' the lowest measure
for taxation     purposes   is   a quart.
Druggists are already marked for
taxation, but the department has not
had time to attend to them yet. All
proprietary and patent me.'.cines and
perfumery are to be taxed at tbe rata
of one cent on the retail price of tCD
cents per bottle en 1 an additional one
cent on every additional 10 cents or
fraction tbereol t.e the retail price.

Tlie great anti-divorce crusade,
which is now in full battle array 'in
this country, is destined to put a
stop to the habit of the American
people flocking into court with vheir
family woes, in such great numbers
that they clog the wheels of justice
and wear out everybody from the
court-house janitor to the most
brainy and intellectual juryman that
ever slept at Ms post. The Ameiican
divorce habit has grown alarmingly
in recent years. A couple are married
today, tomorrow' the husband combs
his wife's hair with a skffllet while
she puts him gently on the head witb
some choice article of bric-a-brac until he can see about twelve acres of
the firmament and a slice ol northern
lights. The next day they are divorced
amid the muffled sobs and spluttered
tears of their respective attorneys.       |
The great and primary cause of
divorce is matrimony. If the re
uuirements before matrimony were
tightened up three or four notches
here and there it would greatly re- j
duce the divorce output. Just as

[>    WAR BURDENS POSTERITY
It is estimated that Canada's war
pension outlay wl'll be four or live
millions B year. About 15 per cent,
of thc tirst contingent consisted of
married men, and another 10 per
cent, were the sole support of depend
frnts. If Canada's expense on behalf
of disabled soldiers aud surviving dependents of dead soldiers is so great
for a force of perhaps n hundred
thousand, what will bc the perman
tnt charge upon the people of Britain
for those broken in the wur? In th*'
new British armies the proportion of
married men with families is very
high, about >j0 or 05 per cent, one report says. Even if it is Ml per cent.,
what an appalling array ol widows
und orphans will have to be looked
after when the wur closes! Thc Brit
ish expenditures for pensions and
poor relief hitherto will seem in-
Significant beside what is undoubtedly L-oing to be necessary fi r m my
years to come. The Uritish go.eminent bus had a very difficult tass
to settle scales of compensation and
relief that shall be fair and satisfactory.
A British parliamentary committees
hns   irranged a new  schedule ol   pen
aions,  iiu reusing    the  former govern
ment schedule  by about   -•>  per cent.
Its scale  runs  from $2.all   weekly    for
a  widow  without     children to  $5.t.-i
weekly for a widow with four   children, and  $0.26 a      week for  a  totally
disabled soldier, and enough to mak»

FIGHTING TYPHOID
Edmonton Journal: Sir Frcdericl''
Treves, in a letter to the London
Times, speaks emphatically of the
success of the efforts that have been
made to combat typhoid in the
present war. Those who remember the
South African campaign do not need
to have the contrast pointed out to
tbem. Of tbe lirst 421 cases in thr
present campaign among British
troops, 805 were iu men who were not
inoculated. In the 4-21 cases there
have heen 3."> deathB. Of these deaths
34 were men who had not been in-
culated within two years. Only ono
death occurred among patients who
were inoculated, and that men bad
been inoculated once. In view of this
evidence, nnd in View of the grievous
injury Inflicted upon the troops by
those who, in widely disseminated
leaflets, advise thc Soldier against inoculation, "one wonders," writes Sir
Frederick,      "if   th

Volley Ball Wioners
The weekly games in the volley ball
league, were played in the Y.M.C.A.
gymnasium on Wednesday evening,
and delighted a lurge number of
spectators that had turned out • 10
witness this interesting game.
At 7.30 the Scotch Reserves a.ud
New Comers took the floor, and from
the commencement thc players on
both sides were compelled to play
their utmost to win. The score kept
very even until two thirds ol the
game was over, when thc burly
Scotchmen began to show they wero
out to win, which was no idle dream
aB thc score at thc huish showed,
winning out by 0 points.
In the second game the New Comers
put to a ibrill'iant game, winning out
by Id iioints. In the third game the
shrewd Scotchmen gave up amusing
their oppoents, and in u short time
showed themselves to be the bitter
aggregation, winning out by 13
points, lf the Scotchmen-keep on going
at this rate they will put the French
men in second place in tbe league.
Result:  Scotchmen 2, New Comers 1.
The second match of thc night was
a walk over for the French allies.
Last week the captain of the: Frenchmen was kept busy enquiring when a
certain freight train would reach
Revelstoke. The demand for J. Purvis seemed to bc great, but he could
not make the grade nnd thc game was
played without  him.
This week matters were somewhat
different, thc Frenchmen hnd out
their full team and the way they
played the game was a sure proof
they arc all there at volley ball. The
brst game was a mere walkover for
them, score 21 to 6.
In thc second game, the Business
men were seldom able to get the
ball over tbe net their team vork
1 eing poor, but the French Recruits
continued to play a sure steady gamo
and by their tine combination work
carried the game through to ., sue
cessful liniBh, score 21 to  12.

and grasses, whose artistic arrangement nre a decided credit to the
pains taking designer. In thc evening
the kiosk is brilliantly lighted by
electricity, standing in very attractive prominence in the surrounding
obBcurity und irresistibility drawing
the attention of passengers,and other
observers, to its pleasing contents,
Although the bottled fruit* and
grasses' at present shown, form a
suflcirntly interesting display, it is
felt that thc fruit resources of the
district will notvbe adequately represented without exhibits of fresh
fruits, and arrangements havc been
made which will,result in placing on
view, in the very near future, a varied selection of the finest Okanagan
apples now to be procured. To the
extent that the limitations of spaco
demand these will replace the bottled fruits. The. various boards of
trade throughout the Okanagan wilt
furnish panoramic views and literature. Kelowna is expected to supply
medals, cups and other trophies of
exhibition triumphs won by our fru'it,
and, ns the season advances, it. is
expected that it will be possible to
divide the display space into sections
to represent under appropriate signB
or labels, the various districts of tbe
Okanagan that have contributed to
the tost of the Kiosk.
From the beginning already made,
it is clear that no pains will bc soared to develop all tbe publicity, possibilities of the kiosk, and it is clear
that, as the plans now in progress
mature and materialize, under the
capable direction of Mr. Lowe, the
lasting obligation to this earnest and
energetic official, for his eflorts on
their behalf.
