Array ���������������������������ri!  ARMSTRONG,  BfC.  A GAM  EN DERBY,  B.C.  IN WHICH IS MERGED THE ENDERBY PRESS AND ARMSTRONG ADVERTISER.  Vol. XV., No. 20, Whole No. 738  ARMSTRONG. B.C..   THURSDAY, MAY 2, 1918  Subscription. $2.00 per vear: 5c thc copy  Another Record Day for  Okanagan Creamery  FIELDS WELL IN CROP  All records for cream delivery  at the Armstrong creamery for  the corresponding time of the  year were again broken last  Monday, when the total amount  taken in weighed 2210 pounds,  with a butter output of over 700  pounds.  Every indication points to a  banner year for this progressive  co-operative institution. Thc  driectors have just ordered the  latest style of pasteurizer, and  'this has been shipped from Vancouver and will bc installed on  ils arrival. This is tangible evidence of their determination  bv careful management to raise  the Northern Okanagan cream  cry products to lhc highest level  and lo make them hold up to if  [.'���������������������������-���������������������������-lot surpass  thc enviable reputation already won.  Orders arc coming in for this  creamery butter faster than the  butter can bc turned out, and  now lhat thc ice cream season  is on, the demand for this is already running close lo the supply, orders coming from  parts of thc district.  As a serious cll'ort is being  made this season4, by closer cooperation between all thc provincial buttcrmakcrs and thc 3.  C. Dairymen's Association, to  bring B.C. Abutter up to such a  uniform standard that it will bc  recognized lhc equal of or superior    to    Alberta    and . Aus-  | -tralian butter, an earnest appeal  is made by thc management to  all producers to make, if possible, an extra effort to deliver  a still better article at thc local  creamery."-r The hot Avcathcr is  now on and. a Utile extra care  will show results. , A wet sack j north end  thrown.jover cthe cream can cn:Valley.  route to the creamery will be a  great preventative for rising  temperature. Proper cooling at  home is essential. The management suggests these points to be  remembered, which will no  doubt be most acceptable:  1. Always endeavor to keep  cr ea m below 50 de grecS.  2. Always cool freshly separated cream before adding to  cream  already-gathered.  3. Keep cover off can, but  keep covered with two or three  layers of cheese cloth.  4. Deliver as often, as possible.  5. Deliver as early as possible.  (3. Stir  cream   gently  in   can  after adding more cream.  7. Bc sure that can is kept  wherc no odors arc, as cream  picks up all foul smells.  Remember, too, that the separator is not a self-cleaner.  Thc local management intends to exert every effort to  bring thc creamery up lo the  all' premier place in B. C. and trusts  that there will be a hearty response to thc appeal for cooperation. A system of grading  will bc inaugurated, and, while  at times this may not quite  agree with the ideas of all, as  fair a grading will be given as  is possible. .  ,  The creamery is now paying  50c per pound for butterfat and  since this price was set, a fine  quality of cream has bcen flowing this way from The district  between Larkin" and Mara.  Remember, your creamery is  here and intends to stay and do  its share towards boosting the  of   the   Okanagan  This has been an ideal spring  for garden planting. In every  direction in this favored district the work of. planting is  well iii hand, and some have  been fortunate enough to get  considerable growth already.  While planting weather has  been the best, growing weather  is only starting. A week of  warm rain would be worth all  kinds of,money to the district.  Increased acreage undr-v cultivation is to be seen in every  part of the district. Never was  a season more promising, and  if wc are given the usual Okanagan weather an abundant  harvest will result. Prices arc  going lo bc high for everything  this districl produces, and our  farmers arc certain to havc a  most prosperous year.  PASSED TO HIS REST  Last ^October, "Mr. Charles A.  Binkley, cousin of our townsman, Mr. J. Binkley, moved to  Armstrong with his wife and  f a mily, from Morris ton, Ont.  Mr. Binkley was failing iri  health,?and the change from  Ontario, to the = Okanagan was  made in the hope of bringing  about ah improvement. But  the improvement did not come.  Mr. Binkley lived through the  winter months, but with the-ap-  proticM of warm weather his  condition gradually became less  hopeful; ancl on Friday last,  April 26th. the end came. ������������������������������������������������������ ,  Deceased leaves to mourn his  loss a widow and two children,  who left on Saturday wilh thc  remains for Morrislon.

Advertising rates: Transient, -10c an inch first insertion, 25c each subsequent insertion. Contract advertising, $1 an inch per month.  THURSDAY, MAY 2, 1918  BRIGHT OUTLOOK FOR O. U. G.  Tliis promises to be the" top-notch season for  the Okanagan United Growers. At a meeting  held in Vernon some days ago thc following  directors were elected for the current year: Penticton, J. Anderson and C. F. Rush; Kelowna,  E.M. Carruthers; Armstrong, W.. PI. Keary and  R. Arnolt; Enderbv, C. W. Little; -Peachland,  T. Powell; Summerland, E. R. Simpson. At a  subsequent meeting of the directors, Capt. J. T.  Mutric. Vernon, was made president. S. R. Simpson, Summerland, vice-president; Thos. Powell,  Peachland, secretary. Messrs. Crehan, Mouat &  Go, were .appointed auditors for thc year at a fee  for the head oflice audit of $400.  No  better indication  of  thc possibilities  and  prices can be given than is to be found in this ex-  ,. tract from the Calgary Herald. Speaking of prcs-  " ent conditions of the fruit and vegetable market  in the northwest, and what may bc expected of  thc future thc Herald says:  "There is not unlikely to be a shortage of fresh  fruit and vegetables, in fact both these two. foodstuff's may entirely disappear from the Calgary  tables in thc near future.    According to authorities in thc city it is merely thc using of the supply  in the cily or now cn route and Calgary will be  depleted of these until thc British Columbia fruit  comes on the market.   At tiie present moment it  is almost impossible for the average home.to-put  much money into fruit and vegetables. Oranges  havc gone almost beyond buying, apples are -very  scarce and soaring every day.    Head lettuce and  tomatoes havc been coming from California, but  shippers have been foolish enough to attempt to  include a few boxes of peas, which are under the  "ban in thc United States and as a consequence the  shipments reaching here were unfit for consumption.   It is now considered only a very short matter of time until an embargo will prevent any  more shipments of tomatoes or any other green  stuff coming across the line.   There is little hope  of the B.

WHO PROVIDES THE JOBS?  the  Germans  are  not  forced  back  to  tlie low,  ground. |  Many people arc at a loss to understand why a j  counter* offensive is not started by the Allies on j  the Italian front. But if we read between the!  lines of various official statements issued recently!  the reason is clear. To start a counter offensive,  of any magnitude requires.more troops than the;  Allies have available. A very significant state-j  merit has been given out officially to the effect  that, "in Italy only one third of tlie army is being,  maintained on the battle lines, tlie official cx-j  plana tion'being that there is not "sufficient food.!  The strong Austrian army facing tlie Italians is'  said to to have received large supplies from Rus- j  sia." . i  To blind our eyes to the meaning of this state-;  ment would be a crime against reason. We*heard,  similar reports from Russia leading up to the  final collapse of that ally. Is it posssible that  Italy is finding the yoke of Mars too heavy to be  borne? And arc wc to> see another collapse  there? If ever there was a time when a counter  offensive on the Eastern front were necessary to  ease the pressure on the West that time is now.  Yet both on thc Italian front and on thc Saloniki  front there is practically nothing doing. This  docs not mean disaster lo the Allies. It docs not  mean that the battle is lost. But it ought to mean  an end to thc cocksiu-c prattle which has  been thrust upon Canadian readers for months  past through the daily press. These are days when  there should be plain speaking. We havc had  an overdose of soft platitudes and smug plaudits.  These have not deceived the enemy, but only our  own people. Today thc issue is grave. Let us not  be deceivd any longer. The deception of thc past  led only to smug complacency. Slowly but surely  ithe-war has been going against us, and all the  while the department in charge of the war news  as it is given out has dished up school-bOy "rot,"  so absurd at times as to discredit the stability of  thc Canadian mind accepting it.     o  Let us face thc facts. We are fighting with our  backs to the wall. This docs not mean that each  shall do his or her "bit." It means that,each must  do his pr her utmost, whether on the fighting line  in France or on the handle of a hoc in this Okanagan of ours.

While in Canada these destructive animals havc  not-yet spread over the greater of the prairie provinces in their gradual migration from the east,  they have spread over southern Manitoba, and as  thc west becomes more settled their destructive  hordes will certainly extend further afield, menacing especially thc grain interests.  V Their destructive powers arc well knowm In  Europe it was estimated, after a full inquiry in  1907, that thc average annual loss caused by each  rat in Britain equalled $1.80, in France $1, and in  Denmark $1.20.

Binkley ;m;l children  lake this opportunity of timnking  tbeir many friends for lhe kindness and sympathy extended fo  them during their sorrowing hours.  If  your .shoes  .stiffen  after  ix   I rump oil a  rainy day, wash  Ihem   over   with   warm . water  and   Ihen   rnb   caslor  oil   thoroughly inlo Ihem.    This.makes  Uic shoes soft and elastic.  Cauliflower, although onc of  (hc most delicious vegetables,  is onc of thc hardest to grow in  many parts of Canada. It  damps off easily in the hot-bed,  is often badly affected by root-  maggot and frequently does  not head well. Iii raising plants,  transplant them from the seed  row, pot or flat to" a distance of  about two inches apart as soon  as possible each way after the  seed germinates. This permits  a freer circulation of air between thc plants and makes--the  danger of damping off less.  Root maggots are bad nearly  every year in many- piaccs in  Canada and often prevent practically all thc plants from heading. Eggs arc laid on the  ground "near the plant which  soon hatch into maggots lhat  cat into thc roots and thus cut  off the supply of sap. To prevent injury from these, a tar  fell disc, should bc put around  each plant close to thc ground'  at the time of planting. It will  hc too late otherwise. Particulars in regard, to thc use of the  disc may be obtained from the  Department of Agriculture, Ottawa. If the first planting of  cauliflower is a failure, another  planting should be made, as  cauliflowers arc much easier to  grow in laic than in early summer as the maggots arc not so  troulbcsomc at that time and  there is usually an abundant  supply of moisture. If thc sbij  in which cauliflowers arc growing is dry, they will not head  well as they need Jots of moisture and must be kept growing  without a check from start to  finish.  Thc  onion   is  lifficulL  vegetable  another rather  to grew, ll  requires a long season of  grcwih and very often thc seed  is sown too late and if thc summer is cool and wet the onions  will nol ripen and will run to  thicknecks; Thc seed should be  got in the ground as early as  possible so that thc onions will  mature in lhc warm weather,  thus ensuring a thorough ripening and curing of thc bulbs. To  hasten thc development of  bulbs, especially if thc season  is short, young plants are set  out instead of thc seed being  planted. Onion sets will ensure  good bulbs also when lhc warm  weather is short. Root maggots,  often do much harm in the  onion, plantation. Watering thc  rows every four or five days  with hellebore and. water in the  proportion cf two ounces of  hellebore to one gallon of water  while thc insects arc troblc-  somc will control them to a  considerable extent.  Except in thc warmest parts  of Canada ni clous require considerable "care to bring them to  maturity. Thc warm season is  too short. _ To 'overcome * this,  imelons,should be started in hot  beds and kept under glass ,tinlil  there are warm nights in June  or even July. Melons require  heat below nnd -heat above, so  il is necessary to havc a good  bed of manure. They will not  succeed in cold soil-even if the  air above ground is warm.  Melons require a plentiful supply of moisture in the soil to  give the best results.0 Much  watering, however, should he  dclajcd until the ground is sufficiently warmed up so that  heavy watering will not cool it  too much.  der wear 65c. garment  . _   * m r*\     -vt      ������������������ Zinimer Kiiit Combination   Suits,  IOU Are 'BOUnd lO JNOtlCe- .
