To win a game which gave  them thc championship, and yet  to feci disgusted with themselves was the unique experi-  - ence of lhc Armstrong lacrosse  team Jast -Thursday 'evening.  The fact- is "IliaI' if it~"had' not  been for Harold Murray's goal-  " tending, the championshiprace  , r\vould still be unsettled.   As;it  was, Armstrong nosed out a 7  . to (V victory,   aiul , if play had  , lasted another ten minutes there  is no telling what might have  happened.   Kelowna was going  ��������������������������� slrong at.the finish and.crowding the Armstrong goal. >V  {tearing in mind thc past performances of the two teams, tlie  result is hard to explain. Two  facts, Jib>vevcr, were fairly cvi-  ~ dent One is that the Kelowna  Jeam was much strengthened by  the inclusion of Brown on their  Jine-up. This is the first game  that he had played against Armstrong, and U made a frig difference to the team to have him  at point. Besides, the fvejowna  team were out to win ancj  played a hard game. They almost got there. An exchange  of goalkeepers would have done  it. *    '     t  should -be of considerable value  to the Armstrong team. They  have^ two more games to,play,  and with the other teams in-the  league gathering strength all the  time, it is . just a "question  whether they will win both or  either of them.  However, Armstrong has reason to be proud of the season's  performance of their team.  Thursday's, game was the-sixth  straight win- - Tlie bovs have  practiced .diligently. They have  won the championship, and the  outlook is good for 1920.     "-  ���������������������������' The score by quarters of  Thursday's'game was as follows  Armstrong  2   3   Jl   \���������������������������7  Kelowna  .2   0    t    3���������������������������6  Tlie league standing, is now:  Goals  Won JM>st   for against  Armstrong ..6   0.   47      22  Kelowna' ... .2   4       24       35  Vernon  .....Jf   5      2\       35  flQQVJSR mbb WSSTRQYEP  turned to Ww Grown4 L*������������������st  Thursday Morning Together  With Five Carloads of Inm-  t������������������er ant} QntWWngs.  ""The sccond~fact isTJhat Armslrong boys were suffering from  over-confidence. That was clearly shown by thc way thc defense  players left their positions to go  down the field. All of them were  guilty, of this except, perhaps,  J lorrcx. Thcy usually got back  in lime but in a disorganized  condition. The result was that,  while the home team annexed  their usual number of goals, the  defense was penetrated for  double lhe usual number. It was  in the field, however, that Armstrong was weakest, and a reorganization of the team would  seem lo bc necessary if thcy expect to win in Kelowna on Aug.  Mlh.  The game throughout was  featured by close checking.  Somc of the players seemed to  resent this���������������������������not being accustomed to it. As a result thc  "game was marred by a few incipient fights. Lacrosse is not a  parlor game, and when the play  is even, it should be taken as a  matter of course that the player  must lake a little punishment  without saying anything about  il. The penalty list was the  biggest of the season, and the  game the most ragged of the  season.  The many friends of_ftfr. C.  Hoover will regret to learn of  his serious loss sustained last  Thursday morning when his  saw mill at Hullcar was Jfrurncd  to the ground. He lost, with  the mill, five' carloads of lumber  mul^forsl!ipmerit7"antrtIie_J5ig  traction engine recently purchased hy him.  The fire was discovered af 3  o'clocjc. It then had great headway, and there was no chance  to save the mill or Jhe lumber  piled ready for shipment.  At 4 o'clock a messenger  came to Enderby for.men to  help fight thc flames, and  Okanagan Saw Mills at once  loaded two autos and hurried to  thc scene. They were unable to  do more than prevent thc fire  from spreading beyond the immediate vicinity of thc mill.  Tlie burning of the mill is a  serious loss to Hullcar district.  It is believed thc fire originated  in the slab pile, probably from  a spark from the engine.  Co-Operative Stores for Valley  Thc Vernon branch of the  Great War Veterans Association  has decided to take steps in the  direction of organizing a chain  of co-operative stores throughout thc Okanagan Valley. A  committee has becn working on  the scheme for somc time and  the plan was supported at a  large meeting of thc Vernon  branch.  x *������������������������������������������������������  Mr. and Mrs. W.

"Selecting" lhc name of the  first Bend boy to give his life in  Ihe world war, the newly organized branch of ti.e American  Legion here decided last night  lhal when a petition for a'charter is sent iii'to slate headquarters it shall specify that the  local society of soldiers, sailors  and marines shall bc named  'Percy A. Stevens Post.'   Plans were completed the past  week for the organization of the  Farmers' Union of British Columbia, which will be an organization of len thousand members  and will embrace the membership of the Farmers' Institutes  and that of the United Farmers  of B. C, This is a result.of the  resolution which was passed at  thc conference of farmers held  lasl month"nt Smithers, when it  was thought that as these two  associations more or, less work  along the same lines, that an  amalgamation of interests  would be to the benefit of the  farming industry generally. As  a result a committee was named  made up of three members of  each association, with C..- E.  Barnes, president of the B. C.  Fruit Growers' Association .as  chairman, to deal -with the  matter. .       ,-   '"  The committee met in Vancouver last , week, being .attended by Mr. Chappcl, of Armstrong, secretary of thc United  Farmers.  After thoroughly discussing  all the various phases of-< the  question it -was unanimously  decided that it was a movc'in  the right direction. Those" on  lhc committee representing'the  advisory board wliich is the governing body of the Earmers' Institutes, were Jas. Bailey, Chilli-  wack;-W. F- Harrison, Kamloops, and C. E.

Thc Uniled Farmers, on  thc other hand, were uniled  three years ago, and their chief ,  objects were independent of tire  Government in every way.  "If any money is to bc given  to the new organization from,  the Government it must l;eli  without any strings whatsoever,'.  said onc of the members of the  committee to the (Vancouver  Province.  " A special committee consisting of Messrs. Barnes, Copeland  and Bailey, interviewed the  Hon. Mr. Barrow, minister of  agriculture, and lold him of the  new move. Mr. Barrow heartily  endorsed the plan and authorized .tlief commit lee to proceed  with thc plans for the bringing  intor.cifect the Farmers''.Union  of British Columbia, which  name has been adopted pro teni.' -:  - Any work thc. commit tc bus  done during ils session will have  to be ratified by the thousands  of members of the two associations scattered throughout the  Province.

The  question   has   been    put as to  whether    they    would  use   the  power when    they can. procure  free fuel, and the answer to  the  question is of such wide import-  that it is worth  repeating.   The  utilization of water power means  the saving of human energy  for   t  purposes to which  power-driven  machinery is   not yet adapted.  The mere chance from the steam '  power to water power is not only  significantof lower costs in manufacturing and of saving of .the .  earth stored fuel for its more important uses, either directly or by   '  causing other fuel to be put iuto  circulation, as in the case of lum-    -  bermill, but it relieves the labor  of   attending   to steam driven  engines, of mining the coal   and  the   labor of   transporting   it. * *"  Every   water power harnessed  and displacing steam implies lab-   .  orers freed from some particular  toil.���������������������������Kelowna Courier. <������������������ftattagan Commoner  In wkieh ia merged The Enderby Press and ������������������������������������'s Weekly  Walker Press, at  CAUTION IN THE WOODS  Published ev������������������ry Thursday at Enderby, B.C.,   by T  per year; $1.00 six month  Several destructive forest fires are raging in  this district; thousands of feet of valuable timber are being destroyed hourly.

On the  ollieu band, there are men who have never  learned lo write more than Iheir own name who  are looked up lo for their shrewd common sense,  for their wealth, and for their position iu the  community.. They Tiavc attained high honors  despite their lack of education. Why should thcrc  bc this difference, which seems to show that a  University man is sometimes less fitted for thc  world than a .man with no training at school?  The secret lies in the fact that in one case an important item of education was left oul, and in lhc  othcr. lhal most important item was the only  real education that the successful man ever received,  and generally he1,had educated himself.  Whal is lhis secret part of education so often  overlooked?    His the lesson of Thrift-    "Waste  nol,  want  not,"  "At stitch in  time saves nine.  "Many a mickle makes a mucklc," and a hundred  olher proverbs teach the lesson of experience, in  the University of the World, and those who learn  the hard lesson in lime rise to thc highest piaccs.  Educate yourself,  and  spend less  than  you  receive.   Educate yourself to pul by for a rainy day  and for a great opportunity.

Now lhal northern Oka-  hangan towns propose to get together in developing electric  power on Adams River or at  lhe Skookum Chuck, on Shuswap (or Spallumcheen) River,  lhc suggestion is made'that-perhaps Ihe South-Koolenay company might be induced to ex-  lend its system through the Okanagan to serve Ihesc points.  Mr. "J. IT. Patterson recently  wrolc lo President Morley of  Board of Trade in the following  terms: "I observe by reports in  the press lhal there is a movemenl among the towns of Kelowna, Vernon.,,Enderby, Armstrong, Salmon Arm" anti the  Municipality of Spallumcheen,  to investigate the possibilities of  developing hydro-electric powcr  on lhe Adams river. In Ibis connection il occurred lo mc thai  it may be feasible for lhc South  Kootenay Power Company, with  plant already in operation, to  extend their-lines through Pcnliclon, Summerland, Peachland.

Thcrc will not  be anything like a full crop, but it will bc a fair  harvest and thcrc will not bc anything approaching a crop fail tire. This has never been known in  the Okanagan. Wc havc sonic ycars leaner than  others. But wc never havc a crop failure, and todav, when so many districts, even in British Co-  ck the  expend!i lures,  but   the road  to  wealth is  paved |iumbiaj arc .complaining of crop failure, wc of  thc Okanagan can boast of a fair yield in every  line of farm produce. Particularly is this true  of the Armslrong-Endcrby-Mara district.    Prices  It is undoubtedly a fact that there is morc actual   money lost in Canada every year through  deterioration and decay in buildings, due lo fail -  la nd.jr>iiJ.n.d i a n_r ese o^^  nngan, which hitherto have lain idle. It became  apparent to the Minister of the Indian Department some time ago lhat a policy should be  formulated whereby these, lands might be utilized, and in consequence, lasl spring the necessary  legislation was introduced lo enable lhc Government to lease such lands for f'iirming or grazing  purposes, or to cultivate them, wilh or without  tbe consent of  lhe  Indians.  As a result of this" legislation, says a statement by thc Department of Indian Affairs, in  many cases where the reserves arc loo large to  be cultivated by the number of Indians located  r>n them, or where for other reasons lhe Indians  neglect or refuse lo use. Iheir land, the surplus  area- has becn leased lo white fanners and ranchers, and thus much good land lhat would  otherwise bc neglected is now being -made productive.  While somc success has been achieved- in lhc  direction of leasing thc land not being used by  the Indians, the Department does not appear .to  make any headway in the cfforlJlo place the land  within reach of returned soldiers. The Department of Indian Affairs lost no time in inaugurating prompt and comprehensive measures in collaboration with, the Solid icr Selllement. Board.  with a view to having such lands placed al the  disposal of that body as soon as possible. There  is little evidence, however, of anything tangible  coming from it, i'or thc reason thai, no matter  bow much thc Governmcnl desires to open the  unused Indian reserve lands lo soldiej- selllement.  nothing can bc done wilhoul the. crjnsent of lhe  Indians���������������������������and this cannot bc oblainec^witlioul lhe  money for the land on the table.  wilh lillle savings.

LOSS FROM LACK OF PAINT  arc high and thc demand strong.  "SELF-DETERMINATION" AND IRELAND  with paint than accrues from losses by fire  When it is remembered that fire? losses during  1918 amounted to $33,G23;000 it will begin lo be  realized whal an appalling loss properly deterioration brings and the necessity of grappling  wilh tbis problem wilhoul delay.  Thc properly owner who fails to prolecl his  buildings wilh insurance is considered very shortsighted, and-there are few owners who fail to pavilion- bill for lire insurance premiums regularly.  When lhe properly owner pays for protection  againsl fire, be i.s providing against a possible  loss, bul if he fails to pay for painting and repainting-his properly with sufficient-.* frequency  lo preserve il from decay, hc fails lo protect himself against certain loss-  Prof. II. if. King, of the Stale Agricultural College of Kansas, in a letter written some time ago,  makes this statement: "Thc losses ensuing in  this stale through lack of paint are much greater  than the losses sustained by fire. Paint serves  more Hum lhc mere purpose of decorating. Its  principal value lies in the fact that it prolongs the  life of'the surface that is painted. Wood and iron  exposed to air undergo a slow process of oxidation, whicb just as surely destroys them as if  they were set on fire, tlie difference being the  speed at which thc reaction comes."  Obviously���������������������������il i.s most desirable that some defi-  nile effort should he made to bring about a condition in lhc minds of property owners which will  insure lhe application of paint coalings to lhcir  buildings with sullicienl frequency lo protect and  preserve Ihem indefinitely from thc action of the  elements.

Why does Canadian bacon  sell cheaper in the Old Country  than where it is produced? Why  do the retail merchants object  ,to ��������������������������� giving evidence before . the  Cost of Living Committee?  Perhaps there is no position  that requires the patience and  "the smile lhal won't come oil"  spirit so persistently'as that of  Road Engineer. In this'country  where we demand .the. best in  road work while content to cling  fast lo the, worst-in-road-work  policy, the life of the average  road ."foreman or road'" engineer  is not worth living���������������������������unless the  position is filled by a man who  has learned the art of looking  upon lhc. funny side of life and  accepting every lemon handed  him as a-peach wilh lhc blush  The Provincial Government  uis received much criticism on  ils road policy. 11 is claimed,  even by good Liberals, lhal lhe  overhead cosl in engineers and  assistant engineers is much loo  heavy for lhe amount of work  done or lhc amouni of good received from lhc work done, Il  is significant lhal in lhe Soulh  owl of lhe Okanagan District'  Engineer 'Gwyer seems lo be Ihe  "goal," upon whom is heaped  the load of sins of lhe Department.  Once again discontent al the  manner in which the roads ol'  the Kelowna district are being  repaired was expressed lasl  week a I a meeting of tbe Board  ol' Trade.when il became known  thai the iMinisler. of Public  Works, accompanied by bis Engineer, Mr. A. E. Foreman, as  well as by the Distri'cl Engineer,  Mr. Gwyer, had onjy a few days  previously visited, thc districl  ahd inspected somc of the roads  wiihoul granting lhc desired  and ol'l-vequesled interview  with lhc roads committee of lhc  Board.  Under the old system, there  were not so many ollicials drawing the fat salaries standing between the people and lhc Department. Under the old form  of government, if onc could not  gel any.satisfaction by going lo  the road foreman, he could go  to the road superintendent, and  if  the road superintendent  declined to act, he could go lo the  Department.   Today, if one cannot   get  any  satisfaction   from  the road foreman, the next slep  is one of the assistant road engineers   acting   under   the   district   engineer.     If   this   gentleman   cannot  give  any  satisfaction one can go  to the district  engineer residing at Pcnliclon,  and   acting   under   instructions  frpm   the road engineer  residing at Victoria;    If,-. the "'district  engineer cannot gave any satisfaction onc^can go to the road  engineer, acting under lhc De-  par tmeiit.u I: Victoria, and if lhc  road engineer cannot help onc  out, you can go to the Minister  of "Works.    It i.s a very roundabout course, and cosily in lime  and money.   The syslcm is said  to be a marvel iu ils completeness in enabling one ollicial  lo  promise  so   much���������������������������conditional  upon   so   many   olher   ollicials  and so many contingencies,    lt  is not surprising, therefore.

Yet this is just  what they did on the advice of  their solicitors, Messrs. Cochrane, Ladner & Reinhard of this  city, and the result has amply  justified their action.  Yesterday afternoon the city  solicitors received advice from  their Vancouver agents that a  cable message had arrived announcing the good news that the  Privy Council had allowed the  appeal of Vernon and Armstrong.  This, with costs, will mean a  gain of between $16,000 and $20,-  (lOU to Vernon.  J The case was first tried by Mr.  Justice McDonald who decided in  favor of the C. N. JR.. An appeal  being taken to "the Appelate  Court at Victoria the decision of  Judge McDonald was confirmed.  n i     j    \ JJ*        j Mr. W. H. D.
