Armstrong Wins Lacrosse  'lhe lacrosse game between  the .Armstrong and Kelowna  league teams, resulted in another easy victory for thc home  boys who played rings 'around  the visitors when they wanted  to make goals- The'first goal  was scored by Armstrong in two  passes and before lhe visitors  awakened to the fact thai th"  game was on. , The next was not  so easy, but easy enoilgh. The  visitors did not seem to bave  any system in their playing, and  were no match for the home  team when they .started to bore  through. In the second quartet  Kelowna did do some excelleni  passing in trying to push into  the Armstrong goal, but when  it looked like scoring, Armstrong's defense simply picked  up the ball2-and hustled down  the field into Kclowila'snel. ,  - After scoring three times the  home defense played loosely, allowing, the visitors to run up  Two,  and "wheiri halt' time was  ' - -    *        tJ I  called Kelowan had 2 and Arm-  Strong3V'Looking at the score  it seemed to be anybody's gain***  when the third quarter opei)ed.

The play that  put "Mose" over, was a running  catch of a toul strike which was  picked up in the nick of time to  put a Vernon pinch hitler out.  and, that of "Rod Sparrow was a  Hying scoop in cenlerfield and a  swift and true throw in to stop  the runner at first.  -, There was good playing and  bad on both sides, bnt for balance and poise the Vernon team  had lhe belter of it though Enderby bad the runs lo win. Vernon lost Ihe game ih the first  and second innings. They play .  ed poorly at bat in the first, going out in one. two, three order,  and allowed a close'decision of  lhe umpire to "rattle" tbem,  which' put them oil' their feel  momentarily and gave the Enderby team the advantage.

Reporl of citizens  committees in. Winnipeg and Vancouver make  it appear, or attempt to, lhal Ihe industrial unrest is the result of whal lhcy delight to call  Bolshevism and a handful of Bolshevistic leaders "misleading" the workers. And in Winnipeg  the authorities have placed under arrested the  strike, leaders, letting Ihem out on bail on their  promise not to lake any further part in the. strike-  It would be very nice if wc could believe these  bland stories. But the sour fact remains that  inspite of the leaders being arrested. Uic strike  continues, and the unrest grows. II was reported  a few days ago lhat the Winnipeg strike had been  called off, and it is true thai a number of the  strikers returned to work, hut it is also true that  all the railroad workers and the running trade's,  are still out and' standing firm. II is certain that  industrial peace has nol conic. II is certain, too;  that there is altogether too much of lhis reactionary stuff in'thc "citizen committee" propaganda.  Too much of the "holier lhan Ibou" praltleV Too  much presumption on the pari of these "citizen  committees," who loudly advertise themselves as  the only Simon Pure, and lhc workers Black  Sheep. Fi>t't is, we never can get anvwherc-in a  fight for supremacy of power. Progress can  come only through understanding. ������������������and a desire  on the.part of both parlies lo co-operate. It is  very apparent lhat avc have not reached.this  point, of understanding in Canada. It is jtoo  much a strivings'for power. Capital is seeking  to control; labor, feeling ils power, seeks to  hreak this control. So long a.s lhis spirit'*prevails there can be no industrial peace.

CHASING OLD NICK AROUND THE STUMP  After four years of comparative calm, the  Lord's Day Alliance has once more taken to tho  warpath. Through its general manager, the  Rev. Mr. Rochester, it now proposes to maJiVc up  for lost time. Previous to llie war life Rev. Mr.  Rochester was doing his besl lo make il uncomfortable for us poor souls here on oarlh; now it.  appears that the;, gonial Alliance secretary is going to make il warm for lliosc who use the  heavens as a playground. lie has declared thai  Sunday acroplaneing i.s against the law; thc pre-.  SlUnptiOn being thai  lliu^o who plain- nay     many  pro]  Ira"  have with their lives. Anyhow, thc Lord's Day  Alliance, through its secretary, objects, so presumably that is all there is to it. A second deadly assault is being ijiade on the ice ereainp vendor  who would sell cones to the hot and thirsty multitude in our public parks on thc Lord's Day.  From a published statement on the subject, it  would seem that the chief complaint of lhe Rev.  Mr. Rochester in respect to selling ice cream on  Sunday was that tbe practice tended lo deplete  the Sunday school collections.    It would appear  The Editorial Bug.  In the seventies and eighties  there was a perfect mania for  starting- newspapers. All it required to established a great  family journal was a fool printer  and a shoe-string'. Ministers of  the gospel hedged in. by two-by-  four pulpits, heard the call of  the editorial siren and blossomed  brth as editors.

FARMERS TO UNITE  , A'committee of five was appointed at thc conference ox farmers held al Smithers some clays  ago to consider preliminary matters for lhc creation of a British -".Columbia council of agriculture and to arrange wilh existing agricultural  associations for the formatioon of this board,  which will be'the outstanding head, of agriculture  in Ibis province, if the object of its promoters is  achieved. Those appointed to lhe commillcc  are J. W. Berry, president of the B. C. Dairyman's Association; C. E. Whitney CrilTilhs, honorary secretary of lhe Farmers' Inslilulc Advisory Board; James Bailey, Chilliwack. and C. E.  Barnes, president B. C. Fruit Growers' Association, Walhachin. It is the intention that this  council shall succeed the Farmers' Inslilulc Advisory Board, but Avill bc much wider in scope-  The committee will make ils report lo thc convention of fanners which it is proposed will be  held some time during tlie coming-winter in Victoria. An eli'ort is to bc made to bring about  an amalgamation with tbe United Farmers, representatives of which organization refused to attend thc Smithers' conference. The United Farm  ers, while a comparatively new organization in B.  C, has grown very rapidly, ll is a branch of the  United Farmers' Dominion organization, and is  shaping up to be a really active organization independent of any government strings or representation. ������������������  'CHANGE CARS FOR OKANAGAN"  Thanks to the energy of the Vernon Board ol  Trade, and the' generous assistance of Mr. R. P.  Lowe, commissary agent of the C. P.

They, too, soon saw the folly  of it. all'and' answered the next  ad.-"Teachers Wanted". But  perhaps the. worst pest of all was  the disgruntled politician. Being  disappointed at hot landing the  party nomination or getting' a  fat job, he at once kicked  over the traces, located some fool  printer, whacked up $50 and a  newspaper appeared on the scene.  Most of these papers have long  since gone to the journalistic  cemetary. ��������������������������� OraTigcviHe Sun:  Hc Knew Fal hcr.

A field of oats is'possible because the seed is sown on  good soil.iThe soil is then exposed  tc ideal growing condition such as  plenty-of moisture and warmth  of-- the," sun.- The seed then  sprouts and ,the field becomes  covered with a green mat. _  Similar conditions must ontain  in'order for cream to sour.i- JBac-  teria correspond to the oat seed  and cream to the soil.    Bacteria  differ from the oat seed*in that  they - cannot be' seen, with the  naked eye and also-in the fact  that when they, get; into\eream  and are given   proper 'growing"  conditions; which means a temp-^  erature)6f 55 to 75 .degrees F.,  they-reproduce and and hence increase in numbers  rapidly:, The  bacteria once in the cream begin  to attack the.milk sugar in," the  cream and convert a portion of  it over into a crop of milk acid,  or lactic acid as it is called.   .  . 'When about .25 to .3 per cent  qf this acid- is  formed -in..the  cream it begins to taste sour and  the longer the bacteria arc allowed to _work   the- more ��������������������������� sour--.it  tastes. Hence it can be seen that  if cream contained no milk sijgar  orjfall the bacteria that have  the power of changing this sugar  into acid could be kept out of  the cream - there   would be   no  such.thing as sour cream, -and  if cream were properly, cooled  and held there- would be no such  thing as sour cream 4 during the  time" cream is  commonly held.
