This organix.ation has been in operation for three years. It is an oi-  gan-ization whose aims and objects  are in the interest of printing, and  the development of the various districts by the more harmonious working together of the press of the Valley.

Get   your    summer 'drinks at Dill  Bros.     All kinds for the hot weather  Not so very long ago about the  only real use anyone had for sawdust was for packing ice.    That  was when small local saw-mills  were more common,   and the ar  mount of this form of waste wood  was, or at any  rate  appearers  comparatively small. Now; when  the tendency  is "to  consolidate  these into larger mills with a capacity of several hundred thousand feet.of lumber per day,  the  daily waste in saw-dust   is--seen  to be enormous and much experimenting is being done  to  discover new methods of utilizing it.  .   Perhaps   the most promising  venture in saw-dust utilization in  this country is the manufacture  of ethyl (or grain) alcohol.   The  sawdust is treated with sulphuric  acid under   suitable'conditions,  resulting  in   the ^formation   of  sugar, which is then .fermented  to1 produce    alcohol. .   Several  plants have been erected to produce alcohol from wood - in this  manner, and, though .there  are  some difficulties still to' be overcome, the ultimate success of the  process on a commercial scale is  assured.  Sawdust has.been successfully  manufactured into briquets tor  fuel for a considerable  time .in  Europe by a .very simple, process.  The shavings and saw-dust are  first, steam-dried; the water contained in the wood being.thus  evaporated and the, resin almost  liquified.   The saw-dust is then  compressed, u^ider heat into briquets of f*-thV desired ."size,   the  contained resin,acting as a binder. " Affirm in Vancouver is engaged in a similar line, of manu-  facture.'.the'saw-dust being. com--  pressed." into   a - cylindrical tube  where it is cut-into-short lengths  by a revolving knife/ emerging in  the-form-of-'smalirround-briquets}  ,*& These briquets are "clean to han-,  ,dle,^e'asy-tt6;;kindle,;"arid leave  -very little'ash.V z-:.^.

JThetar, pitch and. tilr-/  peritine*- are "removed from the  ,saw:dust leaving only . sugar and  fibre to which is added forty per  cent of cottonseed meal: ^ The  mixture is sold for fatteniug cattle:'    '       "��������������������������� ".;��������������������������� -.

These qualities should -win   an .extensive  use   for "this  kind of flooring,'  which has the additional advantage that it can be stained to harmonize with interior ("finishings  by the addition ^of color to the  mixture while, in a semi-liquid  "stater"                           """  The sawdust of certain kinds  of wood is used in considerable  quantities' by manufacturers of  metal polish, for packing, for  meat curing, for making safety  explosives, and composition novelties, and for fibre arid pulp manufacture. Patent cleaning powders for use on carpet's and rug?  consist principally of sawdust,  lightly moistened by some cheap  mineral oil.  The raw material, generally  speaking, is not here. The factory hands are an absent quantity,  and lastly, there is a very limited  market.  "Eggs are Selling today at 35  cents a dozen and butter at 40  cents-per pound.    The  kind  of  factories that' are most  needed  and the ones that are sure of success may be instituted and operated by the investment of a thousand  dollars,    and  the  factory  owner's labor, with that of his  family, on the,payroll.  Any man  who will establish an  incubator  and brooder, which becomes in a  sense a chicken factory, arid will  operate   this  on  five acres  of  ground,"hiay be assured  of sue?  cess.'     The  same line of argument, but.one that will require  more capital, would be for a newcomer considering a herd of cows  as his factory  for turning  out  dairy products. A If he does net  receive an income of one hundred  dollars per month from  his  ten  cows, there isfsomething wrong  either with the cows or with the  factory owner."

Of  course, if we were offered command of a gentle-man-of-war���������������������������  but that is improbable. We come  down then, by elimination, to the  proposition of contributing a ship  or so. The Borden Government  proposes, as a starter, just to  keep our self-respect, that we  put in with the Motherland and  contribute $35,000,000. There is  opposition to this proposal. This  is natural. $35,000,000 is about  $G apiece for us here in Canada.  That's lots of money. It's more  than some of us are worth. Why  should a man, who is not worth  the price of a marriage license  spend that much money to protect himself from- the foreign  foe.   It's absurd.  We ourselves, have it figured  out that if we were to join the  horse marines, and neglect our  business, we should be contributing more than $(*> worth to the  navy. It might not be worth  that to the navy but it would to  us".  We think we can save money  by putting up the six and letting  some one else, go to Trafalgar.  This is business, not sentiment.  We reserve our sentiment for  prodding up some other person  to go out and do the fighting.  We don't particularly need a  navy.

As-' this  seems to place us in a class by  ourselves^ a "splendid " isolation'  which we have not coveted, we  will make a few remarks. Unaccustomed as we are to public  utterance, and as much as we  dislike to rush into print, we cannot refrain from contributing our  mite to the infinity of discussions  on this subject.  It appears to us something like  this. Whether in an emergency  or in some other event, we have  not the slightest notion of racing  up the gang plank of any battleship to do any particular fighting.  If the < enemy come sailing over  the deep blue sea we might be  persuaded to form one of the  welcoming committee that would  meet them on the strand. But  we are not going aboard any  ship. We are constitutionally  opposed to sea fighting. Our experience at sea has always been  that we were so busily engaged  elsewise that fighting would be  extremely de trop.

The question was  Raised only last session in the  House of Commons by Mr. Arthur  Meighen - of "Portage la Prairie,  now ��������������������������� Solicitor:General.'- It' was  then brought for. the first time  before the Borden Government.  It had been at one time under the  consideration of the late Liberal  administration, but when the  Laurier" Cabinet reached the point  where a definite step should be  taken, the whole matter was  dropped.  The present Government will  send a representative to England  next month to open negotiations  with the British ' authorities  looking to the joint control of  shipping charges upon freight  in transit between Canada ancl  the mother country.  The problem with regard to  which the Government is about  to take this important step has  become acute within the last year  or so,' and has attracted much at-  tention .in, the.press _and parlia-  ment. Towards the end of the  lastsession Hon. Arthur Meighen,  now the solicitor general, brought  the subject up in a speech marked by careful research, and was  able to show that the rates on  west going traffic had increased  within a comparatively short period <by fully 25 per cent. What  renders" the situation -peculiarly  annoying to Canadian interests  is the fact that there has been  waged for some years an energetic and successful campaign to  control and lessen *land freight  rates.

Tens of  thousands of Boy Scouts representing every country in the world  were gathered together, and a  great rally on July 5th, brought  30,000 Scouts into Birmingham.  This is what tlie Standard says  of the Boy Scouts and their exhibition:  The exhibition is in Bingley  Hall, and it displays practically  every side of human activity.  The Boy Scout organization  touches life at every point���������������������������boys  of 14 have proved themselves to  be capable blacksmiths, bakers,  bootmakers, cooks, and a dozen  other such-matter-of-fact tradesmen, apart from the excitement  of being firemen, signallers; and  ambulance men and newspaper  reporters. They have' proved  that the boy when caught young  is not merely the father to the  man, but the man himself. There  seems to be ho limit to their enterprise, and the result of a tour  of the exhibition is to make men  feel that they have grown up  thoughtlessly,' ignorantly. and  unpreparedly.  In illustration of the colossal  thoroughness of these Boy Scouts  I could take any exhibit on the  the stalls, but one will suffice���������������������������  not because it is singular,  but  because it is typical.   It is a book  of. pressed  plants , and . flowers  shown by Oswald - Williams, 17  years, a working collier of. Pen-  rhy wf arteg, Y s t r a b gy n 1 a i s,  Swansea Valley. There are quite  a hundred samples of plants and  flowers indexed with a thoroughness that leaves simply nothing  to be suggested... A collier lad,  one would imagine, has not much  leisure or opportunity to couple  a thorough course of botany with  his ordinary work, yet Williams'  sjpec'mens;.each marked with its  habitat, show.that he. has found  time to wander round the hedgerows,1 woods,-^Yastt ground, old  gardens, marshes,'' shady banks,  and hayfields, in search of them."  Here, is a sample of his complete  knowledge.   The elders flower is  given its botanical name���������������������������Sam-  bucus Nigra���������������������������and. also its local  name���������������������������Yscawen, whilst the familiar honeysuckle is shown botari-  ically as LoniceraPericlymenum;  and' locally as Blodaur Mel, with  the note that it makes a goocl  ointment for skin diseases, which  seems, to. prove  that  the   Boy  Scouts we are accustomed to see  racing  merrily over the   open  spaces in our cities are getting  all    the   complete   thrills  that  science can afford, as well as the  joy of youth and the pleasure of  a whole world waiting discovery.  With all the earnestness and  thoroughness=of^the���������������������������Bdjr'Scoutf  there is a note of laughing philosophy running through the organization which takes the edge  off the worries that have bothered  us   grown-ups,  whose boyhood  belonged to a sterner generation.  The mottoes around the walls of  the exhibition are "exhortations  that.laugh in.the face~of sorrow  and are eloquent of the spirit  that is behind these bare-armed,  bare-kneed boys, who turn London suburbs into prairie lands  .with their swift imagination and  replant the streets of Birmingham  with the oak, the ash, and the  thorn of old England.   The mottoes are in green and yellow���������������������������  the Scouts' colors���������������������������and are said  to be the framing of the Chief  Scout.   They read:  "Be a brick."   ^Pass it'on."  "Try whistling."   "The oak was  once an acorn."    "Smile all the  time.''   * 'Stick to it, stick to it.''  "Don't stand with your back to  the  sun."     "Don't  shoot the  musician, he's doing his best."  "Softly, softly catchee monkey."  When the cat's away the mice  will play (the little rotters!)."  The Bingley Hall   Exhibition  is something of a natural university.   It is full of work, but it is  natural work, work that has been  made a holiday of. A generation  ago a boy who could bake a loaf  of bread would have hidden the  fact from-his friend as a guilty  secret, but under the Boy Scouts'  'order of things it is a noble  achievement. He becomes a  handy man, is honoured for his  special talent, and competes with  dozens of others for the best  baked loaf. There are some  really remarkable paintings and  modellings by boys whose fingers  can scarcely have lost the looseness of babyhood. . Boys of 12  do portraits in oils, boys of 13  make complete models of torpedo  boats which are as good as full-  grown tradesmen make for their  week's wages. Rural paintings  ofiremarkable excellence, jewelry  and hammered bronzes all go to  show that boys begin life much  earlier than"they used-to..  DELAYED BY SENATE VOTE  CARLOAD OF CHERRIES.  According, to despatches from  Berlin the Imperial Government  has officially announced the creation of the long contemplated  special cruiser squadron, which  will be made available for foreign  service, and the protection of  German interests abroad. '  This is the German Government's decision which has been  expected for some time in naval  circles here, and which definitely  creates a new phase of German  naval policy. For many decades  the German fleet was concentrated in the Baltic. It then  overflowed into the North Sea,  and, became a standing menane'e  to British naval supremacy by  enabling a large and constantly  commissioned force-to be kept  within striking distance of British  shores. . lhe new departure  seems to be precisely the move  which was anticipated by Mr.  Winston Churchill in\his introduction.of. the naval estimates:-  The -London /Daity,Telegraph  says:."This" reports-will serve to  emphasize the importance of Mr!  Churchill's scheme for .establish?  ing an imperiatfpatrof with "the  aid of the Dominions. ; Unfortunately at the very moment in  which Germiany takes action' to  show her flag in distant, seas jn  more power the British "scheme  is temporarily endangered by the  adverse vote of the Canadian  Senate." " :  An event of interest occurred  in Kelowna on Thursday last,  when the first straight car load  of cherries was shipped by Stirling & Pitcairn-, Ltd.  This car marks an epoch in  British Columbia fruit growing,  as it is the first straight car lot  of cherries that has ever been  shipped from the Province.  Some idea of it's magnitude  can be gathered from the fact  that a minimum car would contain 1,000 cases containing four  baskets, and the cases themselves  hold 18 lbs. of cherries each.  For the most part the varieties  consisted of Morello and the  famous Olivet cherry, the well-  known product of the Kelowna  Land & Orchard Company. Black  Republicans and Lamberts were  also included in the carload,  which, viewed before shipment,  presented a "magnificent exhibit  and was an eloquent testimony  to the fertility of the land in the  Okanagan Valley.  The position recently taken by  Vancouver citizens, and the public spiritedness they have displayed over, fruit, grown in "our  own ' Province, influenced the  destination of the car west rather  than east. It is .expected that  this big shipment will be but the  forerunner of many other cars  of cherries shipped from Kelowna  and the people of British Columbia may rest assured that their  wants in the,way of stone fruits,  pears, apples and the like can  adequately be supplied'.within  the Province's own borders.���������������������������Kelowna Courier.

We think  of it as a predominantly,agricul-'  tural country and commonly account for "the big immigration  thither by the cheap farm lands  of Alberta and. Saskatchewan;  but even in Canada almost one  half of the population now lives  Tn~toWs; The proportion of  rural population has steadily declined from eighty-one per cent,  in 1871, to only fifty-four per  cent at the last census. Alberta  and Saskatchewan have gained  seven hundred thousand inhabitants in ten years, but one third  of this gain has been in the towns  of-the two districts.   In the same time Ontario has  gained three hundred and forty  thousand inhabitants, but the  rural population of that province  has actually decreased. Quebec  has gained three hundred and  fifty thousand, but only forty  thousand of this increase has  been on the farms. For the  whole Dominion in ten years  rural population has increased  less than six hundred thousand,  while urban population has increased by more than a million  and a quarter.  From this one may deduce the  following formula: Given a great  abundance of cheap land that  may be cultivated profitably, and  two me,n will still go to the city  for every one that goes to the  farm. In the United States  during the last census the towns  gained twelve million inhabitants  and the farms four millions-  three for the town to one for the  farm.
