Mr.  Carter left,on his return trip Tuesday evening.  R. A..ROGERS CHOSEN  One of the most remarkable  phases of the United States' entrance into the war is the eagerness shown by. many of her busiest  and wealthiest businessmen to  lend their) assistance to the Government in carrying on fhe work  of war preparations and prosecution. Men who have been at thc  head of vast commercial enterprises at salaries amounting to  hundreds of thousands a year, are  resigning those positions and giving to the country their services  absolutely free. One of the  wealthy men of Minneapolis to 'do  this is .Mr.A.R. Rogers, well known  to many in Enderby, as the president of the Okanagan Saw Mills,  Ltd. Mr. Rogers lias been manager  of the Northern division of thc  American Red Cross for some time  and, in addition to these duties, he  has bcen called by Secretary "Wm.  G. McAdoo, of the 'treasury depart-^  ment of the United States to take  charge of the'second Liberty Loan  campaign in , the ' Ninth Federal  Reserve . district. It is., reported  that the Ninth-'distrlct-:-Avill -be  called upon to buy not less than  $125,000,000 of war bonds'of the  second issue. '���������������������������  A Complete  Telephone Service  committee recommending that potatoes in Ontario and Quebec, for  the consumption of these provinces, be sold at no higher than  $1.25 a bag after October 1st.  "There must be ho hoarding of  potatoes this year," declared thc  food controller. ��������������������������� "We must hear  no more of speculators holding  carloads of potatoes on railway  sidings to freeze so as to reduce  the supply of food in the country  and enhance thc market value of  the remaining supply. Such action should be made a criminal  offence."  Mr. Hanna went on to say that  thc Canadian tpotato crop probably would be' 20,000,000 bushels  greater than last year, and that  there probably will be a surplus,of  10,000,000 bushels. The problem  he says, is not how to economize  in ihe, supply of potatoes, but how  to increase the consumption' so  that none-will be wasted.  THE  DAY  AFTER  , GOOD   ROADS   CONVENTION  The September issue of the  Okanagan Telephone Company's  directory includes not only an increased number of patrons of the  local company but also those subscribers on' the Dominion telephone line and those on the Summerland local system. It illustrates  how much better thc Government  line is under the new arrangement  and the wider scope which is put  in the hands of the Summeiiand  phone   users.     The   new___arrange-  An effort i.s to bc made to hold  a meeting of the local Good Roads  ���������������������������Association   on - Sa'lurciay- evening,  at the City Hall, at'8 o'clock, for  the   purpose    of    discussing   good  road propblems 'and   primarily to  decide upon sending a delegate to  the  Good   Roads  Association   convention  to bc held, at Duncan1 on  the  same  days  next  week  as  thc  Municipal    convention    is    lo    be  held.    Premier Brewster has given  his promise to attend the convention and speak to thc delegates on  thc road  policy of the  provincial  government.    The question of the  accessibility of the proposed route  through  thc  Okanagan  in  connection   wi1"h   the   all-Canadian   highway   from  coast  to  coast  will  be  presented to the government.  All interested in thc Good Road  Dark and drear was Ibr- ioy co."  ner in the King Edward Hotel "the  morning   after."    .And   this   week  the joy hasn't  returned.    Monday  the bar was closed most of the day  and   evening,   with   an   occasional  visitor for a soft drink.    Manager ���������������������������  Jas.  Murphy  has  not yel decided  on any future policy.    lie will endeavor to extend the social feature  of thc  hotel  by  utilizing the bar  for card  and  reading tables,  and  thus make it a meeting place for  anyone,desiring to use it.   lie will  have   a   limited   number   of   soft '  drinks-to supply his patrons. -Hc  will   endeavor  to  keep   the  meals  and' service  up to the high  stan- ���������������������������  clard of the past, and will make the  Sunday  dinners  of  the  house   as ���������������������������  popular as ever.

The  brigadier  is  a   Canadian   by  birth  and  has  travelled  extensively in  a good  many parts    -  of  the world   in  connection  with ���������������������������  the  work  of the  Salvation  Army,  and   this   lecture   promises   lo   be  ycry_ interesting. _Ensign.

Mr. Glen s/ys the crop  was light in the soction covered  by him, and the slnhw short.  A tablespoonfuy of castor oil  poured around th/ roots of palms  and ferns once j/month will give  them rapid .grovpi and keep them  fresh and green', says a gardener.  Increased telephone rates in B.  C. are said to bp a certainty owing to the abnormal increase in  wages demanded by all electrical  workers and, the consequent in-'  crease in the cost of supplies.  Of approximately two million  buildings in Canada, less than one-  tenth of one per cent have been  built with proper consideration of  safety from fire. Only one in every  1200 is said to be even nominally  fireproof.  Mr. J. S. Johnstone returned last  week from Boiscvain, Man., much  improved in health as the result  his summer's visit. Mr. Johnstone  says the shortage of harvest help  greatly reduced the crop yield in  that section. Plenty of men came  to Manitoba from the east when  harvesting opened, he says, but  they demanded $5 a day and board  and,the wheat growers would nol  hire them, prcfjji^iwg "H.T'I,1T?irvesl  what they.^wrtfl'd short-handed and  lc'avcJktfercst in the fields.  ment unifies the telephone service  of the district. It is a distinct justification of the policy pursued  from the start by Manager Dobie,  who fought the idea of a dual system and exerted every effort to  consolidate the systems so as to  make the service complete.

Men and Things as Seen Thro' Hank Reklaw's Periscope  Man is a lovable animal, full ol" perversity.  He can bc led, but not driven. Tbe prohibition  law which came into effect three clays ago in  this province may on the surface appear to have  the effect desired, but below the surface thc man  legislated against Avill bc the same. As well attempt to legislate men into heaven and hell as  to make laws curtailing Iheir personal liberty.  All this is by thc way. What we started out to  say was aboul booze buying lasl week, by the  men and women of British Columbia who were  determined to lay in a store for thc winter. It  surprised even thc hotelmen themselves. The  entire stock of booze carried by nearly every  hotel ancl liquor house in the province was sold  out before thc closing hour Saturday night. One  man bought brandy to have something on hand  for the Christmas pudding and mince pics; another wanted to keep it in thc house for treatment of cold in thc head; anolher had visions of  green apple troubles next spring; another's wife  had kidney trouble; another's mother-in-law  had habitual .cold feet, and anolher uscd.il on the  piano. There were some of the most original  excuses offered���������������������������quite unnecessarily. But they  all carried it home gleefully. Many of Ihem men  who -would never Ihink of keeping booze in the  house under ordinary conditions. They carried  il home in bottles, jugs, cases and barrels���������������������������ancl  some wilh vests full. Many didn't know what  lo do wilh it after they bought il. One look what  lhc could carry inside and outside and started for  home. Part of what he carried oulsidchc stowed  away iii the chicken coop, and pari in thc wood  shed. In thc morning hc went to it again. It  wasn't there. Somebody had gol away with it.  Thc wife has a mischievous twinkle in her eye,  but shc wont Icll. Others slowed it away and  have forgo I ten where they put it. Before thc  prohibition law booze was kept behind lhe bar.  Now it is in the cellar of vcvery home lhat wants  il. And we think we are legislating for lhc betterment of society!   Wise, eh?  MUST GET TAXES IN  At a special meeting of the  City Council Wednesday night, a  resolution was passed authorizing  Mayor Dill and Alderman Coltart  to attend the Good Roads convention to be held at Duncan the  day preceding the Municipal  convention.

Naturally'Canada's  meat king takes advantage of lhe buying market which oilers Ihe hest returns on high-class  heel' cattle.

Naturally Ihe man buying heel* callle I'or the  market is nol going lo pay any more than he has  lo. and, selling lo the markcl, he i.s going lo demand Ihe highest price lhe condition of his callle  will brinti.  MAKING A  FURTHER APPEAL FOR FUNDS  The Order of SI. John and lhe Brilish Bed  Cross Society once more appeals to the generosity- of their friends and supporters I'or funds  lo carry on Iheir work of mercy I'or the sick and  wounded of His Majesty's forces. The joint  committee has decided to make such an appeal  on October 18lh. This day has been set apart lo  he known as "Our Day," and Ihe earnest inleresl  of all i.s asked in order lo make the contributions  as liberal as possible.  A chaplain with the Brilish troops in Mespo-  lamia is credited wilh lhis tabloid description of  lhal theatre of war: "11" 1 owned Mespotnmia  and hell," he svid. "I'd se!t Mespolamia and keep  hell as a home,"  Recently the callle king of Canada ;sold a  shipment of Canadian beef callle on lhe Chicago  markcl al 16c a pound on the hoof. Al lhc  same lime beef is selling on the hoof in lids section of the Okanagan al aboul one quarter that  price, and is being retailed in thc butcher shops  a I all lhe way from 30c lo 40c a pound. Farmers who note these things and watch thc market  prices, arc asking why thc price lo them should  be one fourth lhal oi" lhc Chicago market, and  one-eighth lhal of the local retail market. The  answer is nol hard to lind, though a solution has  bafiled the food controller of the Uniled Stales  as well as Ihe food controller of Canada. Thc  reason the Farmer.is not offered morc than Four  or five cents a pound for his beef callle is thai  loo many of them are prepared to sell al lhal  price--have lo j-c-il, because of shortage of feed  And Ihe reason these callle can be put on the  Chicago market at 16c Jive weight is lhat the  buyer has the fved lo fallen them and gel Ihem  into Al markcl condition. And the reason for  high retail meat prices is owing to the high  wholesale price in the centra! market. The price  ihe central buying agency will pay for beef and  bacon to be sent overseas sets the price on lhe  same commodities sold I'or home consumption,  X hi eagoVs _lh eJ i iLV-ii i g=dcalDJ^O-IVAm.cdca^*mL=LL}i  "The prostitution of honors," says lhe London  Times, has reached its limit in England, for the  more or less open sale of honors and lilies has  become so notorious that, as lhe London Daily  Telegraph' puis it, "it had become impossible for  even lhc ..most innocent of his Majesty's subjects  to  take quite seriously his Majesty's periodical  jeslowal of lilies and distinctions; and Lhal was a  stale of things which loyal citizens found lhe  more, galling the morc fully thcy0i*calized lhal lhc  Honors List no morc represented lhc King's  eh.'icc lhan il represented lhcir own- Tlie choice,  we are told, was really thai ol" the "whips," as  the parly managers arc called in England, ol"  whatever party happened to bc in power, and  some���������������������������though by no means all���������������������������lilies Were obtained on a frankly cash basis-. How this sort of  transaction is worked is related by Mr. Granville  Farquhar in a letter to the London Times. He  writes:  ' "1 see Lord Curzon asked in. the House of  Lords For the name of any person who had  bought a title wilh a check. Some years since,  when Sir Henry Campbell-Banncrman was Prime  Minister, an underling of the Radical party asked  me if "I would, like a knighthood at the price of  $25,000,. ihe only stipulation being that if the  transaction went through, I should vote Radical  for thc future. This did not happen to appeal to  mc, but the individual in question bad better luck  in another .quarter. A check for $25,000 ��������������������������� was  paid, the knighthood was announced in the first  Gazelle, and I have no doubt the recipient of this  'honor' voted as was wished.  "If Lord Curzon is really anxious lo have  names, I could tell him, in confidence, lhc name  of lhc person who came lo mc and. lhe name of  the recipient of lhc knighthood."  Canadian men are rounded up and sent to  Europe to kill or get killed, and we pay Ihem at  (he rale of $1.10 a day. Chinese, bohunks and  olher aliens who lake lhcir places in our mines,  lumber camps, harvest fields, etc., arc paid $4 a  day. There ought lo be some way lo switch the  ���������������������������pay envelope of these men.

B. C.  CROP AND LIVESTOCK  STATISTICS.  Most satisfactory results were  obtained this year in the collecting  of data relating lo crop areas ancl  livestock through the joint plan between the Dominion and British  Columbia government. Over 19,200  cards were sent to all agriculturists  possible and of the estimated number of actual farmers, forty-five per  cent responded whilst in past years  the average return for Canada has  been about ten per cent.  A circular containing full details of crop areas and livestock,  will be ready for distribution to  .'���������������������������������������������������������������������������������fweiiirics of Farmers' Institutes in  a few days. Subsequent issues dealing with crop '' conditions, yields  and prices, as well as stock on thc  farm, will be issued from time to  time.  Thc question frequently arises  .amongst producers as to the wis-  , dom of publishing such timely information, it being feared that  large buyers and middlemen, with  such data at hand, will manipulate  to thc detriment of the producers.  It is desired to strongly impress  upon the producers of the morc  perishable commodities that the  majority of successful buyers and  middlemen make it a part of their  business to keep thoroughly acquainted with supply and conditions in the field of their operation  . and generally have a truer knowledge of thc situation than the majority of the producers, and especially is sections not yet cfi'ec-  tivcly organized.  It must be realized by the producers, that even though they pos-  --scss-sufli ci en Uk nowledge.=_oL_t h ein  own particular section, conditions  which alFcct local prices cover n  wide range including not only this  province but other provinces and  countries the world over.   ,  Just so long as these agriculturists in unorganized districts who  withhold individual data and are  unwilling to co-operate in making  it possible for the government to  keep producers advised, just so  long will the producers be operating with uncertainty on the markets.  A statement published by the sta-  tiscal department shows the areas  of various crops as found in June,  1917, compared with those in 1016.  Of grains intended for threshing,  wheat shows an increase in thc  year of 13.2 per cent, whilst oats  decreased 11.3 per cent. Root and  fodder crops show a total increase  of 9 per cent.  The total area of, all crops in  1917 is shown as 277,152 acres or  an increase of 5.9 per cent over  1916.  Figures for livestock vary from  2.6 per cent in dairy cattle to 12.3  per cent for sheep, less than those  shown for 1916, which would indicate that previous figures have  been too high.  Help from Patriotic Fund  It is now known that, so far back  as June, 1917, the executive committee of the Canadian Patriotic  Fund had decided to grant 'lhe  same assistance to the men selected  under the Military Service Act as  to the men already enlisted, in 'the  matter of payments to dependents.  On June 14th, 1917, at a meeting in  Ottawa, the executive committee of  the Fund passed a resolution providing that, in the event of the  Government's passing and   enforc  ing legislation providing for a  measure of selective drafting, 'the  dependents of the men so selected  "be entitled to the same assistance  as the dependents of the men who j  have volunteered." Under the Military Service Act of 1917, of course  with the first class unmarried men the men selected under the Military  and widowers without children, Service Act will receive every con-  not a great many are expected to yenience and right".of the men al-  require assistance for dependents' ready enlisted.

CANADA  Military Service Act, 1917  Explanatory Announcement by the  Minister of Justice  THE MILITARY SERVICE ACT ha3 received the assent of the  Governor-General and is now part of the law of the land. It will be  enforced accordingly, and the patriotism and good sense of^the  people can be relied upon to support it. Resistance to its enforcement,  however, by word or act must and will be repressed, as resistance to any  other law in force must be.  "Reinforcements under the Military Service Act  immediately required   .  It is the intention of the Government immediately to exercise the  power which the Act confers and to call out men for military service m  order to provide reinforcements for the Canadian forces. This is necessary since the military authorities report that the reserves available or  in sight for reinforcement will shortly be exhausted unless this step be  . taken.  First call limited to men between 20 and 34 who were  unmarried or widowers without children on  July 6, 1917  The present call will be limited to men not in the schedule of excep-  "tionswho wereunmarried or widowers without-children on6th-July,l-917,-  are at least twenty years of age, and were born on or since January 1st,  1883. Of this Class all those will be entitled to conditional exemption  whose services in,their present occupations, agricultural, industrial or  other, are essential in the national interest, and whose business or domestic reponsibilities are such that serious hardship would ensue if their  services be required. Conscientious scruples based upon a prohibition  of combatant service by the articles of faith of the religious denomination  to which men belong will also be.respected. The men first required to  serve will consequently be those who can be called upon with the least  disturbance of the economic and social life of the country.  Civil Tribunals to deal with exemptions  Questions of exemption will be determined, not by the military  authorities or by the Government, but by civil tribunals composed of  representative men who are familiar with local conditions in the communities in which they serve, who will generally have personal knowledge  of the economic and family reasons which those whose cases come before  them have had for not volunteering their se.-vices and who will ;be able  sympathetically to estimate the weight and importance of such reasons.  Provincial Appellate Tribunals constituted from the existing judiciary of  the respective provinces will be provided to correct mistakes made by  Local Tribunals, and a Central Appeal Tribunal for the whole of Canada,  selected from among the present Judges of the Supreme Court of Canada,  will be constituted in order that identical principles may be applied  throughout the country. In this way every man may rest assured of the  fair and full consideration of his circumstances and the national requirements both civil and military.  Proclamation will announce the day  A proclamation will issue calling out the bachelors and widowers  referred to and fixing a day on or before which every man must report for  service to the military authorities unless he has before that day made an  application for exemption.  How to apply for exemption  Applications for exemption may be made by written notice on forms  which will be available at every post office, and will be transmitted free  of postage. They will not, however, be required to be made in this way,  but may be presented by the applicants in person to the exemption tribunals. The cases of those who have given written notice in advance  will take precedence, and appearance in person will therefore be likely to  involve considerably more inconvenience and delay to the men concerned, so that it is recommended that advantage be generally taken of  the facilities for written application.  Ottawa, September 11, 1917.  Exemption Tribunals in all parts of Canada  The local exemption tribunals will be constituted with the least delay  possible, consistent with the selection of representative individuals to  compose them, and the instruction of the members in their duties. There  will be more than one thousand of such tribunals throughout Canada, each  "^consisting of two members, one of whom will be nominated by a Joint  Committee of Parliament,' and the other by one of the Judges of the  existing Courts. Every effort will be made by the wide distribution of  tribunals, and by provision where necessary for their sitting in more than  one place, to minimise the inconvenience to which men will be put in  obtaining the disposition of their cases.  A Registrar will be appointed in each Province, who will be named  in the proclamation and to whom enquiries may be addressed. Each  Provincial Registrar will transmit to the appropriate tribunal the applications for exemption which have been submitted in advance������������������pf the sittings, and men who have sent these in will not be required to attend the  tribunals until notified to do so. Other applicants should attend per*  sonally on the tribunal without notice.  How to report for service  Men who do not desire to claim exemption will report to the military  authorities for service either by mail or in person at any time after the  issue of the proclamation.    Forms of report by mail will be found in all  ���������������������������post officesrandf like applications for exemption.-will be transmitted-free-=  of postage.  Early report advantageous  No man who reports for service will, although he may be medically .  examined and passed as fit, be required to go into camp or join a battalion  until after a day fixed by the proclamation sufficiently late to permit of  the disposition by the local tribunals of most, if not all, of the applications for exemption which may come before them. Thus no advantage  will be gained by delaying or disadvantage incurred by prompt report for  service on the part of those who do not intend to apply for exemption.  Facilities for immediate medical examination  Immediately upon the issue of the proclamation, medical boards will  sit at every mobilization centre for the examination of men who report  for service or who, subject to their right within the time limited to apply  for exemption, desire to have their physical fitness determined in order to  allay any doubt as to their physical condition, or to know definitely and  in advance whether there is a possibility of their services being required.  Certificates of physical unfitness issued by these Medical Boards will be  accepted without any further investigation by exemption tribunals when  they sit. Men found physically fit who have not reported for service  may nevertheless apply for exemption on any of the prescribed grounds,  including even their physical condition if dissatisfied with the Medical  Board's conclusion.  Notice to join the colors  As reinforcements are required, notice to report to the nearest mobilization centre will be given from time to time to the men found liable and  passed as fit for service. Disobedience of such notice will render the  offender liable to punishment, but punishment for failure to report for  military service, or to report subsequently for duty when called upon,  will be imposed ordinarily by the civil magistrates; offenders,'however,  will remain liable for the performance of their military duties notwithstanding any civil punishment which may be imposed and will bc liable  to military punishment in cases in which civil proceedings are not taken.  Watch for the Proclamation  Notice of the day appointed for the making of a claim for exemption  or for report for military service will be published as widely as -possible,  but, as no personal notice can be given until the individuals called out  have so reported themselves or claimed exemption, men possibly concerned are warned to inform themselves with regard to the day fixed,  since neglect may involve the loss by them of important privileges and  rights.

A   Caucasian   colonel   said   lo   me:  'There are. no��������������������������� real   fighters ��������������������������� left in  Russia  except  us, and  we  are not  Russians,   thank   God,   but   Caucasians and  Mohammedans.'

At the same time, Premier Ker-  ensky stales lhal there shall be no  separate peace .signed by him, and  he is doing all in his power to reorganize the army and place it on a  fighting basis.

Eighth���������������������������Adherence   lo   religious  denomination of. which the articles  of faith  forbid  combatant service.  The form is drafted much after  the style of a  ballot  paper.    The  applicant    for    exemption    is    required   to   place  a   cross  opposite  the grounds on which the claim is  made.     His  case  will   then   go  to  the local  tribunal, to which  proof  in support will bc submitted.  Application for exemption may  he made not only by thc man himself but by his employer or a near  relative. In Greal Britain claims  I'or exemption'on lhe ground of a  man being indispensable in his  civil occupation are generally  made by the employer. In any  event a man claiming essential occupation would need 'to have the  support of his employer lo his  claim.  The forms of military report  are equally simple. These will be  used by men who do nol wish to  claim exemption. They avoid the  necessity of reporting in person  until such lime as a recruit is  called I'or service. The declaration  reads:  "I hereby report myself for military service. I will report myself  for duly when called upon by notice mailed  to me at "  Blanks follow for the name and  address of the recruit, his status,  whether a bachelor or a widower,  his present occupation and thc  name and address of his employer.
