They  found that Aslin had gathered  together a combination of  Yanks that had played before  in many of the Class A.A.  Leagues of thc States, and thc  way they treated thc pitching  of thc Canucks was, according  to onc of the Canucks, "just  awful." It was a merry-go-  round of thc first order. When  thc Canucks finally got them  out thc score looked morc like  thc score of a cricket match  than of a baseball game. However, the Canadians came up  smiling like a battered brick determined to even lhc score if  time would permit. Alas for  their hopes! Here again Aslin  pul onc over on them for hc put  in thc pitcher's box onc Tui Fat-  ti. John handled himself like  an old-time star, and il was one,  two, three witli only one run  over the plate.

Aslin should have forfeited thc game for using this  man Tui Fatti, but the Canucks  said start it over again, which  was done. With two different  pitchers in thc box the game  was resumed and at the end of  the seventh it was found that  Aslin was winner 4 lo 25" Thc  game was a better onc than the  first as there was not so much  noise and the coaching was  cleaner. ������������������  Thc principal event of the  evening's sport, thc collection  at the gate, amounted to $17.50,  which was handed over to the  Home Comforts Club.

It may not bc known  tp some, but it isP a fact, that  Mr. Murray is, the only private  buyer of hogs in  who pays llie farmer  gary price, less his  charge of one-fourth of a cent  per pound. Thus our farmers  arc really getting more for the  hogs they sell to Mr. Murray  than the farmers shipping into  Calgary from Alberta points.

July 9, 10 and *t\  A  2 oo 'similar invitation was received  t.oo'from the Western Canada Jr-  2i00 j rigation    Association,    holding  Registration  very quietly. There was little  hurrying and no excitement,  but everybody was there on thc  spot wrhen it came to signing up.  The few who failed to register  will have to do so this week  through thc postmasters. Those  who now carry their registration papers will be well advised  if they make particular note of  the three numbers on their  bread ticket, so they can have  another one issued in case they  lose   or   destroy   the   original.  Anyone getting married after  the issuance of the registration  card must notify thc district  registrar within 15 days.  Registrar J. M. Wright prepared amply for the work in  Armstrong and was ably assisted by Deputies, E. Groves,  B. S. Freeman, and J. E. Britton. The deputies had thc following assistants: Ladies, Mrs.  Etter, Mrs. Golt, Miss McTavish,  Miss Brett, Miss , Fraser, Miss  McPhcrson, Miss Kettelson, and  Mrs. Cavers. . Gentlemen:  Messrs. T.

Thev  950."  registered  something over  off Armstrong under the direction  '" of Mr. J. E. Britton, for the  purpose of observing the agricultural grounds, demonstration plots, hotbeds and cold  frames in operation there. A  very interesting visit was made  also to the market gardens of  W. A. Cuthbert and A. Buckley where greenhouse cucumbers and tomatoes were seen  growing to perfection. The  method of handling such vegetables was fully explained by  Mr. Britton. Special note was  made of the Skinner Irrigation  gystjem in operation at the  Armstrong Public School. A  pleasant social feature of the  outing was the refreshments  provided at the. Domestic  Science building by lhe young  people of the Armstrong High  School. In a brief, speech, on behalf of the Enderby pupils, Mr.  Welsh thanked the students of  Armstrong for their cordial entertainment, and expressed the  hope that in the near future Enderby would have as complete  accommodation for instruction  in Manual Training and Domestic Science, when Armstrong  pupils would bc welcomed in a  similar way to, Enderby.

OKANAGAN COMMONER  THURSDAY, JUNE 27, 1918  '<  ' i   -  A Plea to the Town  People lo Help Harvest  Truth About 0War Tax  The American War Revenue  Bill, this year, is expected to  vield $4,500,000,000. With a  population of 100,000,000, this  means a war lax equivalent to  $45 for every person in thc  country.  Your part oi* the war taxes,  if they were distributed according to population, woidd,  therefore, be $15. If you paid  less than this, who made up  the deficil?  Wasn't someone else's wealth  'conscripted' to do it? Of course  it was and the heaviest payments i'or llu: cost of lhe war  were borne, a.s they properly  should bc, by those best able to  pay them. They were paid without grumbling, no matter how  hard or heavy lhcy were.  The war tax bill of the Steel,  Corporation   alo?ic   was   nearly  $250,000,000.     How   many   deficiencies in   lhe  per capita  lax  did this help to make up"?    Thej  Steel    Corporation'    tax    would |  have paid the per capila tax of  $-i5 each I'or an army of 5.500.-  000 or as many as we expect lo  bave fighting under our flag in  this great war.  The new revenue bill now in  course oI"'preparation will call  for $8,000,000,000  tioned per capita  mean a war lax ol"  man. woman and  United Stales, ll  that next vear tlie per capita tax  will be $100. The bulk of this  will have to bc paid by persons  of wealth and by the greal corporations, it will not"be paid by  Ihcjse in. co!uiv,ling rooms and  shops or in lhe'learned professions.���������������������������Leslie's   Week I v.       ^   -  The harvest is fast approaching and every effort must be  made to prevent any wasld! of  foodstuffs through lack of help  on  the farms.  First things (.must come first���������������������������  food will be a most important  factor in winning the war.  The campaign for increased  production of food which has  been carried on so successfully  throughout the Dominion ne-.  cessitales��������������������������� an increased supply  of labor in the harvesting of  tbe crops. Already the supply  of farm labor is inadequate to  meet this increased demand and  farmers everywhere are looking  to their fellow-Canadians in the  towns and cities to supplement  the supply. No matteer what  happens the crop must be taken  off, and who is to do it?  if lhe able-bodied men in our  towns and cities will look seriously at this vital question,  many of them will gladly respond to thc appeal made by  lhc registration cards for assist-  ancc.  Every town and cily in British Columbia can spare numbers ol" men who arc now engaged in occupations which are  not essential to our national  safety and well-being at the present'time. These men may not  be eligible to shoulder a gun at  the front but they can and ought  to Tielp to feed the man behind  thc gun.  Every employer and employe  should read carefully the following: "A day of reckoning is  coming; a day when that irresistible force, Public Opinion, is  going to judge a man by his  work, and will judge employers  by thc work they are retaining  men to do. Men and women  will look hard at the clerks in  stores, offices, warehouses and  factories.

THE FINISHED COMMODITY  Here is a business proverb lhal is well worth  remembering. It reads: "The country that sells  raw materials will always be poor, just as the  farmer who sells his corn, and not hogs, will  never lift the mortgage." It has been put in  another way: "Let your produce -walk lo markcl."  Thc farmers who arc doing this, no matter wherc  lhcy live, always will be found to be thc real  saviors of thc community. Thc mintage of wisdom is to know how to utilize our raw materials.  To burn a barn in order to kill all thc mice has  been recommended to bc effective. But it is not  'a-policy to be commended. Exports of raw materials and foodstuffs mean skimming our milk  and giving the cream away. Even when wc Iced  lhe produce to hogs and sell the hogs at as high  as eighteen aijd nineteen cents a pound live  weight, avc are, as a community,0 getting the  small end of it. Kill those hogs ancl make them  into bacon and ham and the price rises to 45 and  60 cents per pound. These arc today's prices,  and arc abnormal. But under ordinary conditions, in normal times, the difference between  the raw material price and thc finished commodity is approximately the same.  explanation  ment did not mean exactly what he said.  There can bc no condoning ollicial mistakes in  dealing with mailers of such moment. The need  for men is so urgent, thc Gcrman army is so insistently strong, and lhc menace of defeat is so  threatening, that there should bc no official wool-  pulling that requires an aftermath of explanation.���������������������������Printer and Publisher.  THE PEOPLE'S CHOICE  Since the beginning of kings ancl kingdoms on  this old world of ours, round like an orange and  frozen at thc poles, rulers havc lived on thc people, therefore they 11aIter and delude the people  and pretend lhat it is on the (.people's sufferance  that their existence depends. But this really is  not lhc truth, as thc people have no choice in  thc matter. It reminds onc of the story of a  lady and her little boy. Thc lady had company  in lo dinner onc day. There was a very large  chicken and a very small duck on lhc table, and  the lady, who was doing thc carving, asked,  "Johnny, which will you take; chicken'or duck?"  "Duck," piped Johnny. But the mother shook  her head; "No, Johnny," said she in a firm but  kindly voice, "you can't havc duck, my dear.  Take your choice, darling, take your choice���������������������������  but you can't have duck."  GOOD BYE, MR. AND MRS. STEVENS  VICTORY ON ITALIAN FRONT  The war news of the past few days from the  Italian front is the most encouraging that has  been received from any quarter in many months (  If reports are true, the Austrians suffered a reverse of thc first magnitude, and the Italian army  redeemed its lost prestige resulting from the  ignoble retreat of last fall. The Austrians, apparently havc been forced to give up all the recently-won positions on the west pank of the  Piave river petween Montcllo and the sea. And  the report states that nine Austrian divisions  were annihilated and 45,000 prisoners and  enormous stores are reported captured.  Some days ago when the Austrian offensive  gave promise of signal results, the Austrian  high command gave out the. statement that Austrian soldiers and Austrian brains were alone responsible for the great achievement.

J^eave of Absence on GrxmwJs of Extreme Hardship.  Jt is desired that the Regulations respecting leave of absence in cases of hardship should be widely known and fully understood. Such leave will be granted  in two cases:��������������������������� (a) where extreme hardship arises by reason of the fact that the  man concerned is either the only son capable of earning a livelihood, of a. father  killed or disabled on service or presently in service overseas, or in training for  such service, or under treatment after returning from overseas; or the only  remaining of two or more brothers capable of earning a livelihood (the other  brother or brothers having been killed or disabled on service, or being presently  in service overseas, or in training for overseas or under treatment after his or  their return from overseas); brothers married before 4th August, 1914, living in  separate establishments and having a child or children not to be counted,  in determining the fact that the man is the "only" remaining son or brother;  (b) where extreme hardship arises by reason of exceptional circumstances such as  the fact that the man concerned is the sole support of a widowed mother, an  invalid father or other helpless dependents. ,  Jt is to be noted that in all thes-'e cases the governing factor is not hardship,  loss or suffering to the individual concerned, but to others, that is, members of  his family or those depending upon him.  Procedure to obtain leave of absence.  A simple system for dealing with these cases has been adopted. Forms of  application have been-supplied to every Depot Battalion and an officer of each  battalion has been detailed whose duty it is to give them immediate attention.  The man concerned should on reporting to his unit state that he desires to apply  for leave of absence on one or more of the grounds mentioned and his application  form will then be filled out and forwarded to Militia Headquarters, Ottawa. In  the meantime, if the case appears meritorious, the man will be given provisional  leave of absence for thirty days so that he may return home and continue his  civil occupation while his case is being finally disposed of.

The cover  ������������������������������������������������������rop is. also a0means of reducing  the   moisture   in    the   -soil   by  transpiration, and  thus aids in  ripening the wood of I'ruil trees  liable to be injured.    When thc  soil   has   heen   long  cultivated,;  oughly ripened before winter  sets in, and by sowing thc seed  early the growth of the tree  should be. aided in ripening by  the drying of the soil caused by  thc transpiration of moisture  from the growing c over 'crop.

Some butter  makers havc only a cow or Iwo, and make so little  butter lhat it does not appear to Ihem that they  can afford to have their butter wraps printed.

However,  these wrappers fill the requirements of the law  governing this point, and can be bought in small  quantities at the rate of 65c a hundred in TOO or  50 lots.
