In thc blowing cf groups or nestsv or of  extra large stumps lhis is particularly Irue, where il is necessary lo pul in several shocls and  fire each shot separately. In this  way lhc forcc of each shot is  expended before lhc forcc ol*  thc ncxl shot is -fell. All - the  forcc of instantaneous lifting is  lost,������������������ and thc stump has lofbc  shot to pieces, and al great foss  of;powder and of labor- It is  just like several, men trying to  lift a heavy body; they might  wear themselves out lifting separately and their labor would  be;ineffective,, but let all lift at  once and thc thing is done with  little effort on the part of any  one of them'.      " ;  This is the secret of thc effectiveness of the group firing  illustrated at thc Mara and  Grindrod demonstrations last  Friday by Mr. Harry Johnston,  representing" thc Canadian Explosives, Ltd.' At the farm of  Rupert Davy, Mara, onc slump  23fh 6in. in circumference was  lifted bodily.out of the ground  with Icn.lbs of powder placed  at the lifting points around.thc  slump and fired simultaneously  by'electricity., Anolhcr nest, of  three stumps, one 22 ft and one  16ft, with a smaller one malted  betw'een,-fwerciblownj clean r.oiit  Hvifii^32 ^sticks -distrifiuiectratvSi'  lifting ; points and ..instantaneously fired. . ; *-" \V :  .. At thc Slroiilgcr arid Emcnv  farms, near Grindrod,; equally  successful demonstrations were  given. Here a half-green cot-i  tonwoo'd stump 5ft in diameter,  was'lifted clean out with nine  pounds "of ��������������������������� powder. Another fir  stump,;50-in,across,was blown  clean out with TVs pounds of  powder.' -'.���������������������������:'-'  Here the'-womenfolic took.a  great interest in the Rowing,  jVlrs.JJftandcock and Mrs. JSineny  each.manipulating the battery  lever which did the firing.  Air. Johnston explained that  there 'was little advantage in  electric firing where stumps are  small and onc shot is'-.chough.  But where lhc stump has to b#  circled with shots the advantage   from   instan'tan_eo_us._-firing  Some Systematic Effort Must  Be Made to Facilitate Getting  Returned Men on the Land.  It is nol sufficient for municipal bodies to proclaim that  Northern Okanagan lands are  available for soldier settlers.  An earnest and s3Tstcmalic effort should bc made lo facilitate  prospecting by returned merir  Co-opera lion between municipal bodiTJs- and residents will  meet the need. It is as worthy  an effort as Red Cross or any  form of war-time activities. To  aivc the returned warriors a  better than 50-50 chance to reenter civilian life is now thc  patriotic duty.of thc hour. Arrangements should bc made for  reliable listings ancl for, assist  ing  in   showing  returned .men  seeking  farm   locations  where  thcrc arc desirable properties.  J: M. Wright, Mayor  W. H.

Penticton, Kelowna nnd Vernon,  heing the premier exchanges on  lhc Okanagan system, were  each given first place in lhe  Directory in all copies-given lo  subscribers in.- those localities.

There was some discussion at  the mccling over the adoption  of the name, it being pointed  out lhal as an automobile club  it might bc usurping thc field  of thc  good  roads  association!  In thc discussion lhat followed it was clearly, shown to  bc the aim of members, to discourage the multiplication of  clubs, and associations covering  similar ground and to ccntral-t  izc in one organization so as to-  give increased powcr and morc  harmonious action.

This was in  operation for only one'year when three other  rural districts were approached on the subject.  Consolidation of all the rural districts surrounding Foxwarrcn was favored by a large majority  of the ratepayers and the present district was  formed in June, 1917. The dislrict covers 78%  sections of land and there aie eight van routes  varrying in distance travelled from seven to eight  miles at a cost per van per trip of Irom $4 to 4-50.  Thc Government pays half the cost of transportation, and a special grant of $500 to assist in defraying thc initial cost of forming a consolidated  dislrict. Up to the present the usual style of  horse van has becn used. The question of motor  vans has been discussed, but this mode of transportation cannot bc used in this district until thc  rural municipalities have completed the system  of new roads now in course of construction. Thc  trustee's arc convinced that motor transportation  is thc cheapest, and no doubt it will be adopted  as soon as conditions arc favorable.  "We havc found the attendance much.better in  tlfc^wi ii tcr==ifroii llfs^tharrt t^was^n^the^ruraT  schools, and we think you will find this to bc the  case in all consolidated districts.  "Wilh respect to this districts consolidation has  increased the taxes considerably, as a new school  was built at a cost of -$57,000. This, of course, is  not necessary in all consolidated districts, but thc  extra cost of transportation would probably in  all cases increase thc taxes to somc extent. This  might be offset in a measure, as in this districl.  by requiring fewer teachers lhan were employed  prior lo consolidation-  great advantage gained by consolidation. In  common with other consolidated" districts,-the  taxes are considerably higher, but it must not be  forgotten that the district has a beautiful, large,  modern, school building instead of the old dilapidated buildings. Even then, if the attendance is  taken into consideration, the per capita tax for  educationJis /much lower than formerly. "Thc  unanimous opinion of those having children in  attendance is in favor of this system," says the  official report. "Onc ratepayer says hc would be  willing to pay an extra tax of, $100 rather than  return to the old system, he is so well pleased  with *-tlie��������������������������� way in which his children are taken  to school."  The Dauphin consolidated school is anolhcr  example of the success of the syslcm. Here thc  consolidation has becn working since 1909, and  lhe report says thc system has grown in favor  from thc start, ll cosls them a little morc than  when under the old syslcm, but lhcy say_lhc results arc so much belter lhat they are willing to  pay a higher school rate.  Mclita (Man)-consolidated school district-was  established in 190S. "and has given good satisfaction to the ratepayers, morc especially lo those  having children of school age who. previous to  pfclisolidation,. were living a considerable distance from thc school and are still living several  miles from the consolidated school. Thcrc has  been no:intimalion on the part of the ratepayers  lo return to thc old system." .  Thc Starbuck. consolidated has been in existence ten years. Thc average rate for special levy  in thc three-districts" consolidated, Starbuck,  Holyrood and Kinlough, for the three years previous to consolidation, was 15 1-10 mills on .the  dollar, or $9.75 per quarter section. Since consolidation, it has bcen found necessary to increase the rate lo 18 mills,, or $11.55 per quarter-  section. The consolidation has given widespread satisfaction, so much so that none would  bc willing as far as wc know lo return to former  conditions, and among the reasons for this'satisfaction the following may be mentioned: (Jl) We  have a morc beautiful, more comfortable, more  convenient, better equipped, belter healed and  ventilated" school building, set in large and attractive ".grounds. (2) By our Iransportalion system, thc pupils arc able to' attend more regularly  and more'comfortably in. all ��������������������������� weather, arriving  a I school in better condition/for .work. (4) Wc  havc thc .advantage-of better grading-and better  supervision of- teachers, which lends to getting  more and better .work in- thc allotted time. (4)  Wc havc high.school'education, free for all, rich  and poor alike, without interfering with .the  I lower grades. (5) Our courses of study can be  more .complete' and- betler'adapted and adjusted  to local .conditions, and requirements. (6) We  have better facilities for taking up when required  all supplemental courses, such as ' domestic  science, manual training, elementary agriculture,  school gardening and nature study. In view of  these advantages, wc conclude that consolidation has created, ideal conditions to meet the  educational requirements.of pur community."  These reports arc hut samples of many others  from Manitoba. Thcy express the thought hack  of every report made on school consolidation.  These reports should convince the most skeptical  of thc advantages to he derived from consolidation, and there should be no question as to the  outcome of the vote on the money by-laws that  are to be submitted.  Another excellent idea is being worked out hy  the committee of the school boards and the city.  It is proposed to sell the school bonds to our own  people,V'sb "tl^r^inste^l^fsciulin^tlie^mtercsf  KING EDWARD  A name that stands for the best in hotel service  ������������������  King Edward Hotel,  P.

Thc Snowfiakc (Man.) consolidated school district consists of the municipalities of Louise and  Pembina, and has an assessment equal to 40 sections of land. In this district a modern school  building was erected. The children are brought  to school and taken homc in the ordinary covered  vans.

Must Gut off Unpaid  Subscriptions  The Paper Controller of Canada  has given notice that a strict regulation is about to be issued by the  Dominion Government to the effect  that���������������������������  Publishers of newspapers must  cease sending their newspapers lo subscribers three  months in arrears unless subscriptions are definitely renewed and all arrears fully .  paid.  The reason for this regulation of  lhc Paper Controller is that it is the  practice of some publishers to send-  thicr newspaper until ordered  stopped, and this practice frequently means a failure to collect  anything for subscriptions in arrears, in which case there is-a virtual waste of paper. It is to pre- - .  vent paper waste that the new regulation has bcen  decided on.        - -  The manufacture of paper consumes labor, wood, coal, chemicals  and transportation facilities, and  every ton of paper saved means  just so much-more labor, raw materials, chemicals, fuel and^ transportation available for urgent war  needs.    For these reasons the Gov- "' ***  eminent insists that paper shall be  saved, and proposes that only those  whs   pay   for   their   publications  shall receive them.     V  0 . This order will leave" the news  paper publishers no choice in the J - -  -matter.    "WV must  therefore  insiit'V  upon alt subscriptions to the Com-  mox'f.u being paid up.

It is sale to say  ha he tourist trade brings lo Cahlorma each  season al least irom ten to twenty millions o  dolhxrs Somc estimate the figure a great deal  hither, but this figure is high enough to bring to  lhc Canadian nunc! some idea oi what this 'trade  -would mean if it could be turned this way ior a  .season or two. And il might well be il we were  onlv prepared to receive il and cater to iJ. But  Canada is youn'g at the tourist "business W c  have a heap to learn aboul it. _ Naturally, not  knowing how .to receive it or. to -develop it, wc  nobh-pooh its possibilities. *But it is a pledged business���������������������������a trade that brings- wealth and  hcallh and pleasure in.its wake.  Thc tourist trade gives quickest returns ior  service oi anv commerce any country can undertake Payment, "cash on. the dot," as onc has  put it,1 is lor exactly those, things which'the people produce and originate themselves. In that  sense tourist traffic forms a most valuable national asset of gilt-edged import of practically nothing but dollars: Another important factor: It is  a business tisot carries refinement with it. Peo-  Cplc away from home are on iheir good behavior;  Ihcv meet others; converse at lhcir best; arc irec  and frank, and in giving of thc best in them, thcy  draw thc best out of those with whom they meet.  A new spirit" is developed and a better people is  the outcome���������������������������and a belter country.  This is an aspect of- the trade which niusl not  be overlooked. And in lhis year of dillicult rc-  adaplation lo peace condilions, when such .tremendous possibilities arc opening for Canada,  wc should make the besl of what wc havc in the  Okanagan aiid exert ourselves in an effort lo turn  tlie.lido of-this gill-edged trade inlo lhis beautiful valley. Perhaps we arc not yet prepared to  handle lhc larger tourist trade, but we can very  easily prepare lo take care of lhc aulo .tourist  traffic���������������������������and   lhis   is   by   ho   means   insignificant.  The Trade Adviser of lhc Pan-American Union  ���������������������������an inlernalioiicirorganization maintained by"  the   Lwenly   Lalin-Amcrican    republics   and   lhc  Northern Okanagan and Southern Okanagan. But  the people cf California quickly'realized their  mistake, and tlie onc word "California" is  enough. So it is rapidly coming to be in this  glorious Valley of ours. The tendency is-to drop  anything which signifies distinction as to locality.  The Okanagan is not so big as to require splitting  up into small localities. We are all onc. We arc  better that way���������������������������and we will get farther.  This seemed to bc the important aspect of the  organization meeting. And it is the finest spirit  possible���������������������������thc winning spirit. Too long have wc  in thc Okanagan becn content to confine our  focus to the little things about our door. We havc  not measured up to the real importance of the  district we arc a part of���������������������������the Okanagan. We  have not becn Okanaganites in the larger sense,  and thereby havc failed to make the most of our  opportunities.  It is filling that our aulo owners should lead  in marking off sectionalism in thc Okanagan.  If thc new association clings fast to that policy,  and plays openly and fairly with all parts of lhe  country, much good will come of it. Wc have in  thc Okanagan many miles of trunk road, some  of it the very finest scenic driveways that could  be found anywhere. These trunk roads should  bc looked after first, and thc influence of thc association exerted in having thc trunk road from  one end of thc Valley to thc othcr put in Al condition and kept that way. Hundreds of autos  will come into thc Okanagan from Washington  points this season, and these will be'only tod1 glad  to lour the Valley from Penticton north provided thc trunk road is kept in condition for easy  travel. If California had such scenic drives as  many of those in the Okanagaiv thcy would bc  advertised from ocean to ocean and tourists by  lhc hundred would pay handsomely to bc driven  over them. Then wc havc in thc Okanagan the  finest of fishing and hunting and a long camping  season wilh little rain and Jew of thc discomforts  which arc confronted in thc dryer portions even  of California.  We should make morc of these features so  common to us, but which would attract tourists  by hundreds if. thcy were known about. The  lake drive from Penticton to Vernon should become famous if it were better advertised. Then  we have thc drives through groves and deep canyons and that winding from Enderby to Mabel  Lake. All of these, if put into condition for traffic,  would become popular, and would bring gilt-  edged business into the Okanagan. .<-..  CREAMERY DIFFICULTIES  Tin iT^rsTTfR^ToFl ltFTlcOTTimTOif nr fflurfgna Ufef  things of friendly intercourse, writes lo lhe Canadian Trade Commission as follows:  "I am inclined to think lhal all parls of Canada  could receive thousands of lourisls from lhe  Uniled Stales during lhe coming summer if special efforts were made by llie Dominion lo lei il  bv known generally in lhis counlry lhal Canada  ���������������������������wants tourists to come.

The meeting of patrons of the Armstrong  Creamery last Saturday afternoon in the City  Hall was hot productive of any great results, but  it did bring about a clearer understanding of the  situation and enabled patrons and the managing  board to talk over tbe difficulties confronting tb.c  cnteiprise���������������������������-and lhcy arc not few. The explanation of Mr. Bally, the bultcrmakcr, and that of  thc managing directors, Avhile nol conclusive, indicate that, thc management has some very real  troubles to work out. Patrons who addressed  lhe meeting showed that while lhcy were not ciir  tircly satisfied wilh the. way the business had developed, thcy were still prepared to hold fast to  whal lhcy have unlil belter results can bc bad  from olher plans yet lo bc evolved.

SLUMP IN POTATOES  BUILDING UP ON BROAD BASIS  At last week's organization mccling of lhc  Okanagan Automobile Club and Good Roads Association, held at Vernon, there was a total absence of anything in the nature of sectional feeling. The spirit of lhc mccling was such as lo  give confidence in lhc id lima te outcome of the  new organization, based upon lhc broad- lines  thal'havc bcen drawn for il.. The association is'  nol confined to any particular limits. The Okanagan is bigger than certain territorial lines: it  stands for more in lhe minds of thinking people.  Jl has a charm something like tlie charm which  clings to "California." Long ago they used lojdu.slVy is confined almost entirely lo Montreal.  _.sj)e;:k of "Xorlhern" California and "Southern" j Quebec and Toronto. Still we import $2,000,000  ^California, jusl a.s we  (narrowly)   now speak of  worth of boots and shoes annually.  Potatoes were selling in Armstrong this week  al $5 a ton. These were si tiffed by the evaporator  company. It       means     lhal.   potatoes     now  in pits N\:ill have lo bc fed lo thc hogs. At this  price potatoes-make cheap feed for pigs. The  slump in'price at lhis lime will have a tendency  lo discourage planting for this season's harvest  This may act in the interest of those** who.-do  plant.

Tea stains arc treated with boiling water.  Perspiration stains yield only to boiling water.  Lemon juice and salt remove the average rust  ;stain.  ^    For stains from acid use ammonia or chloroform. .  Paint spots will usually yield to turpentine or  benzine.  Coffee stains yield to boiling water if treated  when fresh-  For chocolate stains soak in coal oil and wash  in cold water.  Fallen   fruit   should   never  be   allowed to lie  under the trees.  Grease spots should be rubbed with  French  chalk or Fuller's earth.  For mildew stains use lemon and salt or javclle  watcr or soak in sour milk.  Alcohol, either wood or grain, will remove the  most stubborn grass stains.  Fruit stains should be soaked when fresh in  sweet milk or oxolic acid solution.  Grass stains should be rubbed with molasses,  then washed with soap and water.  Sponge painty tar or pitch stains with turpentine or benzine; then wash in hot soapsuds.  Stains from acid fruits such as lemon or grape  fruit should be covered with baking soda.  Wine stains should bc covered with dry salt  when fresh, or with warm milk if dried or old.  Fruit stains which turn blue or gray after treatment -with boiling water can be removed by a 16  per cent solution of acetic acid.  For stains left by eggs, milk, meat or blood on  wash material try to remove first by soap and  water. Then try soaking the spot or garment  in two tablespoonfuls of household ammonia to  a gallon of water. If somc tiace of stain still remains sponge with peroxide of hydrogen. If  stains are on thick^ unwashable material apply a  paste of starch and water; let dry and brush out.  transplanted as soon as possible. Great care  should be taken when ventilating a hotbed when  the wind is high in cold weather as cold wind  blowing directly on the plants will injure them.  A hoard should be put at the end of the sash to  break the force of the wind.  INTEREST ON VICTORY RONDS  On May 1st one million or more people in  Canada will draw their first interest payment on  the Victory Bondte for which they, subscribed in  the fall of 1918. These Victory Bond holders  will now seize the opportunity of reinvesting  their Victory Bond interest in Thrift and War  Savings Stamps, thus adding interest to interest.  The amount they will receive from their Victory  Bonds will in some cases start them on Uie way  to a War Savings Stamp by investing in a Thrift  Stamp, which can be exchanged later for War  Savings Stamps. Where their interest comes to  a larger amount they can purchase the Government $4 "Baby Bonds." which are just as good  security as the Victory Bond, and arc backed by  all thc resources of the Dominion.

Thcy work earnestly in preparing the  soil lor the seed, then spoil it all by planting the  seed   wrongly   or   through   lack   of   care   when  tbe early plants  have appeared  above  ground.  Here are some Experimental Farm suggestions  which may help tlie uninitiated to make a better  garden, and at thc same time may bring to the  mind of the experienced some points long forgotten:     ��������������������������� .'.- ..-:"���������������������������  ���������������������������*��������������������������� The time of sowing thc seed and the early care  of vegetables arc very important factors in the  successful" growing of them. The seed of somc  kinds of vegetables will germinate at a temper-(  ature and under conditions of moisture at which  other seeds will not germinate and will some-1  times rot. ������������������������������������������������������ _���������������������������".,    ��������������������������� .'������������������i^-iii&J!      ;^,..^i i-'"������������������������������������������������������ j  . Seeds of beets, carrots, lettuce, onions, parsnips, peas, radishes, kohl-rabi, garden cress, salsify, spinach, parsley and leeks can be sown as  soon a.s thc ground is dry enough in the spring  so that il will work well. Thc seeds germinate  at relatively low temperatures and the plant will  stand considerable frost without serious injury.  . Othcr vegetables such as cabbage, cauliflower  and celery will also sland frost but these arc  usually started in a hotbed in order to save time  in thc field.       ���������������������������   '> ���������������������������   ������������������������������������������������������    l   - ; -���������������������������'. ���������������������������'   ���������������������������   , :   ]���������������������������.-..},���������������������������**���������������������������  Vegetables "which require higher temperature  than the above in order to grow well and which  arc injured by light frosts arc beans, corn, cucumbers, melons, potatoes and squash.  Seed of laic cabbage is not sown until late in  May but it Avill endure frost, and seed of Swede  .turnip should be sown laic when required for  lhe table.  , Frequently lack of germination of seed i.s  blamed on lhc quality of tlie seed whcreas.il may  be due to the way lhe seed is planted or to lhc  rotting, of lhc seed in Ihe ground when certain  kinds of seed have been sown too early. Small  vegetable seeds arc. ������������������oflcn planted '''much loo  deeply. For thc smaller seed onc-quarlcr of an  inch for the smallest to one-half an inch for  those a little larger is deep enough. If planted  much deeper the seed may germinate but thc tiny  shoot does not reach the surface "of the ground  and the liny plant dies. Peas, corn and beans  arc planted about two inches deep. In very loose  soils, the surface of which dries down more than  those fairly compact, slightly deeper planting  may be necessary.  When the seed has germinated great care  should be taken to ventilate hotbeds carefully.  When Uic young plants come up, the frame  should be kept sufficiently aired by raising the  back or higher part of the sash to prevent thc  plants from gelling spindly or weakly, when thcy  are apt to damp ofT. When young'plants are  grown in a window in a house they arc often  very (hick in thc pot and if in the sun and with  the surface soil wet, lhcy arc very liable to damp  o(T or scald.    They should be  thinned out and  - ~> i  Help the Y.M.C.A.

C. has issued a call for a membership "drive"  this spring and summer, the object being to enroll every farmer possible and to awaken others  to the need of the hour���������������������������co-operation and organization.  "Probably at no time in the history of Canada,"  says he, "was there greater need for fanners getting together-to consider matters of vital importance to themselves and their country. One important matter for us in British Columbia is  whether, as farmers, wc, should run our own  business affairs or continue to sell our produce  at whatever price those who grow rich by the  handling thereof may choose to offer us, and to  buy our requirements with no control whatever  over the purchase price. Such a course will inevitably doom us to failure, no matter how efficient wc may bc in thc other operations of our  business.  "The war is over and thc reconstruction period  is upon us. There arc no indications that tlie  I'crccs which have stood between us and our  righls arc any more willing to yield us our righls  than thcy havc been for thc last fiftcciVyears. I  fear that as farmers wc will wake up to the, full  realization that wc will havc a large proportion  of lhc war debt to assume. As farmers we are  quite willing to pay our just share, but should  not have to pay any morc.       ' ������������������  "there ave indications that advantage will bc  taken of thc confusion growing out of the war to  appeal to prejudices and passions- to blind thc  people to their own interests, the farmers can  only.protect their rights and interests by mobilizing' their strength and co-operating, this can  only bc done through organization.. Our only  present hope is in the development, and growth  of our organization.       - .---:>  ��������������������������� "Get busy, brother farmers and fellow laborers! Now is the time to organize.

Dealers estimate lhe cost here of local I'ruil pulped al 19c a pound,  while lhal imported i.s said lo  cosl only from M to 15 cents.  There has been a decided  shortage- in fruit supplies for  cunning and jamming purposes  all over- the world because of the  cessation of fruit growing in  Europe during war, and thc demand for Canadian-grown  small fruits has been ^ heavy.  Practically every can of fruit  put up by thc Dominion Canners' association last year was  marketed abroad, leaving no  surplus on the domestic market.  Small fruit growing in the  Armstrong-Enderby district, on  a commercial basis, is practically non-existent, though all kinds  of small fruits produce most  prolificallv here.  nation is so manifest that there  is a general demand that this  be done. War Savings Stamp  are a step in this direction, for  through tbeir sale, ,fi^nds arc  placed in the hands of the Dominion Government. In other  words, this means that instead  of borrowing in London and  New York, the Government is  trying to gel at home the funds  it needs.  OSOROB   P. BUTLER.   A. M,   M.

Is too poor to buy you  all tho flna clothes you want, or  to keep an automobile dr to  take you abroad for the summer; If he spends most of his  time chasing the chickens,calam>  Uy and failure out of the garden,  dont sulk and pout and fret your  day* away. Your husband may  be one of fortune's ne'er-do-  wells, which is all the more reason why you should not fait him.  Help him shoo the chickens out  of the garden, and laugh when  you do It, and perhaps you wHI  have a golden harvest yet. At any  ratebeoheerful,strong,and ready  to do your part even if the man  you married because you dearly  loved hlro . (remember?) is unable to do all that he promised.  A sullen, discontented wife is a  terrible drawback to any man.  Whatever is worth having Is  worth working for, and wedlock  is like an ox-team at the plow.  If the off ox won't pull with the  nigh one he has no claim with  him upos the. possible future of  a comfortable stall and full bin.  Lieut.   F.    J.
