FLOODS SCHEDULED  ADVISES HOSPITAL BOARD  The excessively, warm weather  of lasl week, following so long a  period of cold, brought down the  snow from the mountains in floods.  River are said to be higher in some  parts of thc mountains than they  were at flood tide'in any previous  year recorded in the Province.

It  is needless to say lhat he found thc  records kept by City Clerk Rosoman in excellent shape.    Il is Mr.  Crehan's .policy to  keep  in  touch  with   the   municipal   work   of   lhe  Province, going from cily to  cily  throughout the year. He is thus kept  well posted on,thc progress being  made at all points, and he reports a  general  revival  all along the line.  He says, too,-that each municipality  visited by him is making progress  on  a  more substantial  basis than  ever before, and all- are finding a  way out of the financial difliculties"  in   which   they   found   themselves  'when the readustment made necessary as a result of war conditions,  took  place.   ' Mr.  Crehan  not  only  audits the accounts-of thc municipalities of the Province, but he also  advises  lhe "town  councils  in  any  way he finds-advice acceptable and  necessary.     This   feature   of   his  quarterly  visits  is  itself  worth   a  great.deal to the municipalities/for  he can point out weaknesses as he  finds them, from the point of view  of an outsider and an expert, which,  would,   perhaps,   be   unacceptable  from a local source. -'   :**    *'  .

He  advised strongly against the city  laking over the hospital as a public  instilulion, but said it should be  regularly organized under thc hospilal Acl. Tuesday morning, hc  met members of .Ihe'hosuital board  and reiterated whal he had told the  members of the council,, ancl as a  result of his recommendations the  board decided to take lhc necessary  steps leading up lo incorporation  as a hospilal board.

ISS(SSS-,?S������������������%  Something new   in  children.   At Speers'.  middys, for  '   Beginning wilh July 8lh the stores and factories  in 'Victoria, New Westminster  and Vancouver  will have Saturday afternoon- as a hall-holiday.  As wilh the miners, sincltcrmcn ancl provincial  GovcrnmcnI jcmployccs, it is_ a legislative cnacl-  nicnl, lhc"choice oi'^lay"lTaving^bccn^left^to-a  vole of the people.   In Vancouver Saturday received 5,522 votes, as against 1,654 for Wednesday.   In New Westminster the vole stood: Saturday, 1,046; Wednesday, 191.   .Al.Victoria the  result was: Saturday, 1,853; Wednesday, 1,183.  Thus similar weekly holiday condi lions-will prevail in all the coast cities.   And thus dp w'c sec  the beginning of the end of this mid-week half-  day -oil'^lichVhe-RelailVVIe^^  of lhe Province has been endeavoring lo foist  upon the people as a half-holiday.   The thing litis  been an abortion us-a half-holiday.   Conceived in  selfishness and kept alive by folly, il could not  hope to have any other'ending.   It may nol he  today; but it will come tomorrow.   The demand  of thc people for a weekly half-holiday tlud all  may participate in and enjoy must be heard.   The  mid-week hall", clay off, which lhe merchanls in  many of lhe towns in lhc Province have observed  the past Iwo or three years, lias all bul killed the  holiday spirit of lhc people.    Spoils have languished and community recreation is a thing of  the past.   The mid-week half-day oil' was thrust.  upon lhc people by lhe merchanls.    Ii did not  come in answer to popular demand.   It never has  been accepted by thc people, and never will be.  The merchants desired lhe mid-week half-day oil" [  because that was lhe quietest part of thc week for  them, and it cost them less lo close Iheir stores  Wednesday or Thursday afternoon than it would  to keep Ihem open.    They failed lo recognize,  however, that Ihey were intruding upon the jusl  holiday requirement ancl desire of lhc rest of lhc!  community.    With thc  schools   open,   and Ihcj  banks and all public business going on the sanicj  as usual, the intrusion of this half-day oil' on a I  day when nobody else could enjoy il, and without  regard to lhe wishes of lhc rest of the community,  was'not relished by the people, and soon the mid  week half-day oil' came inlo disfavor. There  was an ever-increasing demand thai it bc discontinued, and lhat all join in making a half-holiday  on a day when all could participate.  In Vancouver ancl Victoria the retail merchants  fought for Wednesday throughout the campaign  'which=was-carricd-on^\vhcn*=thG-rel'ci-  submitted to the people. But they were overwhelm ly dcfcalcd. No doubt the result of the  voting al the coast cities will drive some reason  into the heads of lhc retail merchants in olher  sections of lhc Province. They should have  learned by this lime lhe futility of trying to force  something upon the people lhat lhe people do not  want and cannol make use of. But if Ihey have  noLycl learned lhc lesson, Ihey will learn if next  January, when, at lhe municipal elections" lhe  question of Wednesday or Saturday will be put  up* lo lhc people lo he voted upon. If the truth  were know, nine retail merchanls oul of Ion fully  recognize lhal a Saturday half-holiday i.s lhe only  Ihing. They know lhe folly of attempting to  a mid-week half-day oil' answer the pur-  Al a meeting of lhe merchanls of Enderby  lime ago, every man present openly expressed himself unhesitatingly in favor of Saturday in preference lo Thursday. The strongest argument used in favor of Saturday was brought  out by a correspondent in the Vancouver Province in the recent campaign when he said:  "Let us look al lhis question in a much broader  sense and consider whal-benefit the different days will  give to lhe wives and children of those alfucted by the  half-holiday. Practically all the merchanls and fully  half thc clerks arc married men, which* means that  fully 3000 mothers and fully (>()()() children are awaiting with'breathless anxiety Ihe outcome of lhe vote.  Whal good is a Wednesday half-holiday lo any of thc  married men, women or children? The father going  home on Wednesday finds his children at school, and  he either sacrifices his pleasurable half-holiday outing  or keeps his children out of school. I Ihinlc that if  lhe members of the fair sex who have a vote or an  enormous influence over the voler of Ihe house, were  lo exert lhal influence in favor of the Saturday, these  hundreds of mothers and thousands of children would  he privileged lo enjoy, one half-day each week in a  MEETING OF CREAMERY- BOARD  A meeting of the boarcl of directors   of   the   Northern.

The "re- '  port of the manager, Mr. Gillman,.  .showed   very satisfactory  progress  was being made, bolh as to cream  receipts from the farmers and'lhcr  making  of butter  and   ice  cream. "  Thc weekly oulpul of butter is now  in the neighborhood of 1,500 lbs., *  which'i.s bcin" disposed of as rapidly as it conies from the wrapping *  table.   Mr. Gillman says the cream  arrives from the farmers in execl-  ^iicIiun_-.vas_lo_.Lshape.-an(Lslu>ws that p;drp_ns_  of the creamery recognize lhe need  of care and cleanliness in preparing their cream for shipment.  Armstrong merchanls are how  finding il difficult lo procure good  dairy'buller, as all the heavy butler  makers who formerly supplied the  stores are now shipping their  cream lo the creamery, and only the  small producers arc supplying the  stores wilh dairy buller.

THURSDAY,   JUNE 22,  191G  INTENSIVE CULTIVATION  All farmers cannot farm intensively ancl make  a success at the job.   Some "men are buill lo farm  intensively, some acquire lhe science, and others  try bul fall.   Are you, Mr..'Farmer, working your  full acreage?   Are all your acres producing some  revenue.   Do you gel enough oil' each acre held by  you l.o pay interest on tlie money invested?    If  you are holding idle acres, you are in lhe same  position as thc merchant who carries old slock on  his shelves from season to season, or the inaiiu-  faelurer who invests in machinery and then permits  it  lo sland idle from   week  lo week  and  monlh lo month.   Thc idle acre cats up the profit  made oil' lhe cultivated acre.   Acres standing idle  arc a poor holding.   They help nobody ancl impoverish   the  holder.    And   lhc  acres, lhal  are  farmed, if Ihey arc...-.hot made lo produce to Ihe  full capacity of lhe land, result in a loss to lhe  owner.   The manVvilh a Tew acres, il" hc can do  his own work ancl ���������������������������market his product, is infinitely  belter oil" than the .'holderof large acreage which  is only partly developed and partly producing.  Mr." A. Buckley, of Armstrong, illustrates lhis  point. There may be dozens of others which we  "might mention, bul one is sullicienl lo 'make the  point clear. Mr. Buckley is an intensive farmer.  "11 cTiTii k csr e vifry^rtnTrotl ncc*^cv=cry-f oo l-o IVsoi I  represents so much money invested, and every  fool i.s made lo. produce inleresl on lhe investment, and a profit for lhe proprietor. In 1911 Mr.  Buckley held .10 acres of garden truck land wilhin  the cily limits of Armslrong. He worked every  acre, and believed he was making money. His  .turn over lhal year was something over $-1,001)  for lhe season. When he figured il oul at lhe end  -()f~lhe-seas()n.Ju.i_.l'i)iui{LJie-Jiad_niadcUhe;_l{?..:l,U_Oli  turnover al an actual loss. In 1015, Mr. Buckley  relinquished nine of the 10 acres. The seven  acres remaining were nol as good soil as lhal  on lhe nine acres relinquished. Bul Mr. Buckley  farmed il dill'ereully. He handled the seven acres  with very lillle cost in hired help, lie farmed  more intensively. His turnover in actual produce  amounted lo $.1,500, and his actual profit on the  season's turnover was $1,500. In short, he farmed  1!) acres in 1011 and sold $1,000 worlh of garden  truck at a loss on the season's operations, lie  farmed seven acres in 1015, selling $.1,500 worth  of Ihe same varieties ol" garden truck as was sold  lhe year before, and showed a nel profit of $1,500  on.lhe season's work.  hours of 4 ancl 8 o'clock. Many people take ad-  vanlagc of these hours of inspiration. They dig  in the garden, hoe in lhe fields, or gel lhe washing  out. They do so without turning thc clock forward. They pay no.-attention to the clock. But  others seem to think they cannot gel up an hour  or two earlier in lhe morning unless Ihey turn thc  clock ahead. Ancl they Wish lo put a tangle in  lime in order lo gel lo work an hour earlier.  'They call il "saving daylight." Jusl what Ihcy  mean by this expression we do not know. There  are three hoyrs of daylight at either end of these  summer clays which are not made use of in lhc  ordinary course of business. And whether  one goes lo work an hour earlier or an hour later  he does not "save daylight." There is ample day  light, and lo spare, either w.ay. So where does  lhe "saving" clause come in?  The people, of Kelowna were lhc firs I in lhe  Valley lo attempt, as a community, lhc "hour  earlier" notion. They tried it a brief time, then  look a vole on it. The vote resulted in .dcalh to  the notion, 'luey resolved lo' turn Iheir clocks  back again lo standard time. No doubt the majority of the people of Kelowna will continue to  enjoy the early morning hours without much attention being paid lo the clock.  ______________________ e>  Never have live slock been needed- more as a  source of soil fertility and national prosperity,  and never have market prices been so consistently  high-    WHICH AUTUMN ?

TURNING TIME FORWARD AND BACKWARD  Well am Monlag, a widely circulated weekly  newspaper published in Berlin, expects peace in  the autumn. 11 gives the following reasons for  holding lhis opinion: "The great council recently  held in Paris, according lo unanimous reports of  Brilish, French ancl neutral newspapers, nol only  decided lo exercise a sharper pressure on nculral  trade, bul to prosecute a co-ordinaled attack on  all fronts wilh all-means al their disposal. Wc  have a right,to bc somewhat skeptical wilh regard  to'these reports. "Wolf! Wolf!" has been cried  so often. Bul lhis lime wc expect something. In  lhc nature of the case, and under existing circumstances, the English Iroops musl soon come into  action, and lhc noticeable silence prevailing on  this point strengthens our belief. The conference  al Paris and ihe speech on peace condilions delivered recently by the Chancellor, lead us to  suppose lhal wc stand before thc decisive lasl  .phase of the war. Wc must brace ourselves up  for a last attempt, especially of our Western encr  mies; also, perhaps, for an advance of the armies  at Salonica.' Should il really be true whal is said  ���������������������������aboul lhe enemy conference at Paris, vyc may  reckon thai thc summer months will bring lhc  military decision and the preliminary conditions  of peace."  In view of this utterance of lhe Berlin newspaper, a cable special from F. A.-McKcnzie, London, in lhe Vancouver Province, is significant: "A  curious optimism exists in many quarters concerning lhe early termination of the war. Soldiers  now talk freely of peace in August, and thc Nation newspaper reports lhal'French civilians, who  know the government situation, are beginning to  think peace may not hc very far oil'. The highest  quarters in London, however, regard such expectations as foolish and consider lhc continuation of lhe war inlo 1917 inevitable.

Are your  Butter Wraps  running low?  Better order some now  Last year through ollicial encouragement Saskatchewan farmers bought several times as much  breeding stock as the year before, mainly caltlci  and sheep. There was an immense grain crop  ancl a good market for it, but lhc slock was  wanted anyway. In lhis country there is much  thc same incentive. There arc some who flop  from grain to live slock and back again as markets fluctuate. But there is room and lhc need  for more live stock, even if markets for il were  lower. High markets serve a useful purpose at  this time in turning attention to the possibilities  of slpck- farming. "Men who buy breeding stock'  with thc hope of making easy money put of it  will slick to lhc business so as lo hold lhc economics of production and lhc balance of labor  and fertility which stock farming oilers.  Some men do not know a thing when they sec  it, unless il is tagged wilh the price. They may  buy cows or ewes on lhat basis���������������������������just because  they arc so expensive that Ihcy naturally should  produce slock lhat would command similar  pr-iflns ^1 .ftUsiir.h^pnr.e.liMsers-givc attention ..to  the economics which live slock makes* for lhc  According lo an Old Country authority, all  agriculturists will do well lo breed lhc useful  guinea-fowl, for Ihcy can bc reared wilh very  little trouble if properly fed, ancl soon 'become  gluttonous devourcrs of insect life; in lacl, it  cannot bc loo widely known thai each guinea-  fowl will positively keep an acre of potato-ground  clear of beetles, ancl for this reason alone they  deserve attention. April ancl May arc- thc best  months for hatching, and, as the eggs take 28  days to incubate, no time should bc lost in securing sittings of eggs, fifteen being about-Hhc number for a broody hen. From March lo thc end of  July these birds can bc relied upon as regular*  layers.  One reason why Ihesc fowls have nol been so  much bred is due to laic hatching, farmers ancl  others allowing them to ineubalc their own eggs  too late in thc season, and one of thc greatest  enemies to guinea-chicks is undoubtedly damp,  especially during the first few weeks, for, like  turkeys, they require extra precautions being  taken. The food is different from thai required  by ordinary chickens, and should bc given more  often. Chopped boiled egg add breadcrumbs will  suffice for a couple of days, when barlcymcal and  ground oats, made with warm milk and mixed  with plenty of finely-chopped green onion tops,  must bc given as soli food for a I least, two, or  three weeks, and it should never bc sloppy, but of  a crumbly consistency. At a monlh, or even  parlicr, Spralt's Chikko may be given, with alternate feeds of small wheat, buckwheat, and a little  bruised, maize. The. addition "of .maize to, the  chicken's,; bill of fare-is advised, as-it has a tendency" to make the birds tame-and more content  with confinement, for many complain of their  wildncss, as they, prefer to., roost an "trees'.-and  enjoy semi-wild habits. This," however,, largely  depends on lhc strain and management, and if, as  chickens, they arc partially confined and always  fed _regular.I)% in lhc same place, they grow, up  tame. The guinea-fowl, although of strange appearance, have a lovely plumage, and yield dark-  colored, full-flavored, juicy meat in goodly quantity, also laying a dcliciously rich egg of a dainty  lirsi.

Some Notable Values in  MEN'S WEAR  CANADA'S TOBACCO FUND  What the Good Roads Movement  Has Done for Quebec and Ontario  At lhc recent Good "Roads Convention held in Montreal, Hon. M.  Tessier, minister ol\ roads of the  Province of Quebec, told of thc  satisfactory progress made by the  Good Roads movemenl there. He  told of the various slages of progress passed through. "In 1907," he  said; "it was decided lo gel lo work  to remedy lhe teirible roads which  existed throughout thc rural districts of Quebec. A law was passed  allowing a certain sum to * each  county which would undertake lo  improve the roads. This law was  amended from year.to year, and in  do their best to cultivate llie land,  nol at all for tourists and owners  of automobiles, i heaid of a congress in the States some years ago,  where the slalemenl was made that  wherever the Good Roads- Movement had spread, cultivation of  the soil had also increased: after  lhc opening of an improved highway in any agricultural section of  the Stales Ihe tonnage of the traflic  immediately increased from fifty  lo one hundred per ccnl. A good  road is the first factor of agricultural progress and prosperity. Our  farmers can raise more crops, can  Hill the 50 per cent bill was put j diversify their products, go in for  through, which gave to all those! more intensive culture, which is  who were willing lo improve their! just what we need. In fact, I know  roads, 50 per cenl of the cost. In they are making more money today  1912 thc present .system of loans lo than ever before. They were  municipalities was ' started.

To satisfy all demands, j ing today, and that is owing lo the  wc shall  have to provide, not five j improvement wc have made in our  .millions, but twenty millions lor  lhis purpose. In 1907 only 21  0miinicipalitics look advantage of  thc Government's offer of help,  whereas in 1915, over 475 municipalities profited by it. Since 1912  . we have spent, on improved highways thc sum of thirteen millions  of dollars���������������������������over three million a  year. Wc have constructed and  improved over 1,700 miles of macadam and gravel roads, and, since  1909 2,000 miles of such roads  have been made."  Speaking of the importance of  the Good Roads movemenl and the  good results achieved in connection wilh the development of agri-  highways."  1 Continuing, Mr. Caron said: "Wc  have to educate our people on the  question of good roads. * ' -In  all lhis, however, wc need a good  deal more than just help from thc  Government. We want lhe help  of all good citizens, whatever class  they may belong to, in order to  help along lhe farmer. Let him  feel lhal he is as good as anybody  else-in this country. Thc farmer,  needs encouragement,' and, perhaps  with our 'sympathy hc will bc more  interested in his task, and on that  sentiment we can base the future  prosperity of the country."  Speaking   of   the   road   building  culture in Quebec, Hon. A. Caron, * system recently adopted by the On-  minislcr of agriculture said: "Wc tario Governmcinl, Mr. M. S.

I said lhal good roads'; Works, under the advice of his col-  Thc fund to piovide tobacco for  llie Brilish troops from overseas,  which was originated by the Over-  Seas Club, and of which Canada's  Tobacco Fund forms the most important part, has issued a statement to thc end of April showing  the amount received during thc 19  months of its existence. Canada  heads the list with conlributions  amounting to upwards of $120,000  and over ������������������100,000 has been raised  in Australia and New Zealand. In-  eluding the penny contributions of  thc children of the elementary  schools of lhe Old Country, which  exceed $100,000, the total money  reported lo the end of April was  close on $(500,000. Actually the  Over-Seas Club has been instrumental in raising $0*10,000 up to  date, and has sent to thc boys in  thc trenches two and a half million packages of tobacco and cigarettes, representing considerably  over 128 million cigarettes and 256  Ions of tobacco.  Large as these figures are, Mr. F.  R. Jones, secretary of thc Canadian  Tobacco Fund, slates that the  money being received is far from  adequate to provide for the needs  of the troops. If each of lhe 100,000  men now representing Canada on  the firing line i.s to receive one of  lhc weekly packages .arranged for  by the Canadian Tobacco Fund  through the Over-Seas Club, it is  obvious that the sum of $25,000 is  lcquircd every week to provide a  25c package for each of these 100,-  000 men. Even allowing that there  arc some of the'men who (lo not  smoke and that there are some who  arc cared for by their personal  friends and through other channels  lhc fact remains lhat thc men want  tobacco more than Ihcy want anything else, lhal they arc not getting  as much tobacco as they require,  and thai they greatly value the  gifts being sent from home or  through lhc Over-Seas Club.
