deeper than in ordinary seasons, and il is longer
coming ouLand-growth therefore,held back. The
usual.amount cf sowing has not been done, bul
a great deal of planting will be done within the
nexl Iwo weeks. Attention must bc.paid lc local
ccjndi lions. If one,is prepared to protect plants"
for a . few , nighls aflcr planting, should the
weather bc favorable, well-hardened plants may
bc. risked any lime after thel15lh May.
Do nol make the mistake/)!' sowing peas later
Hum tlie 15th May. This is the month for.sowing
beans ol* all kinds. If the ground is fairly dry,
sow now all bush and pole varieties, wilh lhe exception of Limas. Except on very dry and light,
sandy, warm soils, Limas will bc safer in the bag
until early in June. A first sowing of an early
hardy sweet corn, such as. Golden Bantam, may
bc made now and two sowings should be made
sayQlwo weeks apart, before June J5lh.
Cucumbers, pumpkins, squashes and melons
may bc sown'in May. or as soon as the soil warms
up a bit, and il may be well again lo remind and
emphasize the fact lhat thcy may bc safely
ger of mixing by means of cross-fertilization. Although much has been written to thc contrary,
the fact is that, wilh perhaps thc exception of
pumpkins and squashes, thcy cannot even bc
cross-pollinated arlificiallv.
* BT
If beets and carrots havc already been sown,
make another sowing of each during thc monlh,
allowing nn interval of three weeks between llie
sowings, a.s these vegetables arc much better used
quite young and lender. Thc second sowing of
lettuce may also he. dx\v. If delayed until lhc end
of May. use crisp head-varieties only, such as Iceberg oi- New York, a.s thcy aie thc most satisfactory during hoi weather.
Cabbage, caulillower, Brussels sprouts and kale
for fall and winter use must be sown toward the
end of lhe month, also���������if you have suitable soil
���������celery for fall and winter.
Do nol."omit lo have at least a small plot each
of Swiss chard and New Zealand spinach.
Thin all vegetables immediately the plants become large enough lo handle. If this operation is
delayed until lhe plants are six or more inches
tail, lhcy will begin to gel spindly and weak, and
it will lake lhe selected plants some lime to recover.

occasionally be ofl'cndcd by some little thing said
or left unsaid by the editor. . It is all very ,sad
that such should bc the case. You do not know,

There never'was a brighter outlook; the  tideoof opportunity is at its flood. All around us  one can see big opportunities for the men far-  sighted and fore-sighted enough to prepare to reap  their share of the harvest. The great obstacle in  the way of many men in business seems to be an  obstacle self-imposed. They see big business approaching, but are inclined to make the effort to  restrict it to0their own particular channel and  method of doing business. But this cannot succeed. People were never more ready to buy than  they arc at this time. Then?-is no scarcity of  money. The field for new and greater business  is here. But it must be business based upon service and price.  Advertising is the certain, quick" and most economical method cf developing that business. No  other method known to industry or trade can  equal a fal live ad for getting results. Put this  great powcr back of any sound business and  watch that business grow.

THURSDAY, MAY 10, 1919  TOO HARSH TO SERVE  Unless wc are gmUly mistaken thc amendment  to the Municipal Acl compelling forced sales ol  property  for  taxes and  adding  ten  per cent it  not paid bv thc last of June and another five per  cent if  not  paid by  the  1st   October,   and  o_  top of this 15 per cent added to thc principle, to  impose 8 per cent additional until paid, is harsh  ���������������������������harsher than reason   or justice  would dictate.  It is a question if, in ils desire to forcc payment  of taxes more promptly, the Provincial Government has not gone too far.   It is easy enough to  pass a harsh law, but nol so easy lo make it workable.    Thc effect of thischarsh tax measure will  probably be that householders will sell out al the  first opportunity rather than run the risk of being caught in lhc lean ycars to follow and having  the home sold for taxes.   It is certain to diminish  thc number of homc owners in- every city and  town in  the Province.    Men will rent property  rather than own it.   And the stablcizing influence  of homc owners will have been lost lo thc com-.  in unity.  Everybody recognizes that many cities in  the  Wc arc in an era of  unprecedented "prosperity. It only remains for  us to see lhe light and get busy.  If you havc something to sell and you want to  sell it to the greatest number of people in thc  shortest time possible and at the lowest sales cost  ���������������������������advertise.    This is no theorists argument.    It  comes from Roger W. Babson, of the Department  of Labor,'Washington, D.C.   Continuing he says:  "Theorists  and  unbelievers  and  those  of  the  'old school of merchandising'���������������������������I mean -particularly those who go along year in and year out  satisfied that thcy arc entrenched firmly ancl securely and those who have settled down to live  on the fat of past performances���������������������������to these men let  me sound this  warning:   If you  don't  wake up  and accept facts as  thcy present themselves, if  you don'l pry yourself lepse from lhat chair of  skepticism and lethargy your competitor will get  you.  "Thcrc was a time not far in thc" past when the  function of advertising was to exploit some "cure  all" or scheme. Times have changed. Men have  changed. Methods havc changed. This is an age  bf progress, and advertising has kept step. Look  around you; on every side you have concrete, visible examples of what advertising has done, not  theoretically, but actually. Can you disregard the  proof? Can you disregard thc voluminous and  conclusive .evidence presented to you?  "Don't wait for things to come your way without doing anything to help them along.

Unfortunately it is too seldom  found in Canadian families after the  children have passed a certain ago,  and often not even before. The want  io due partly t; circumstances beyond  lhe control of either party an������������������i partly  to the fault of Canadian parents.  Time wipes avay from the parents'  min'd the recollection of how they  thought and felt and acted when children, thus removing a bond of natural  'sympathy.    In addition,  parents  then  THE CHEERFUL MOTORIST  I crawl beneath mv balky cr, wilh 13 kinds of  wrenches, and tinker where its vihds arc 'mid  $as and grease and stenches. When done I am a  sight to 'sec, a sight i'or sorc-cyed dragons, and  passing horses shv al mc, run off and bust lhcir  wagons. I skid inlo a muddy ditch, and halt  seme passing granger, to bring his mules along  nnd hitch, and'haui mc out of danger. I wallow  'round in squashy mire, cold rain upon mc drizzling, removing from lhc wheel a tire, und use  language sizzling. Sometimes thc lamps won't  shed a ghost of their accustomed splendor, and  Ihen I run into a post and break a costly fender.

Something  can bo done by parents to bring this  about, so that an ideal relation shall  he enjoyed so long as child and parent  live.  -.  - i Parents need as much as possible  to put themselves in tbe child's place  and try to become as "children again.  Fathers and mothers who best remem-  "ber their own childhood as a rule are  those who meet with least failure in  rearing  the   child.  I Germans insist on respect from  children, and this discipline helps to  liold the German family together all  Its life in friendship between parents  and children. The Japanese and tha  French work on their children through  love, and comradeship, and among  ���������������������������both peoples grown sons and daughters stand more closely beside fathers  and mothers than among Canadians.  Parents and children are not all their  lives bound together in this  country with such lasting bonds of  family affection as in France, Germany and Japan. c  i What has here been laid down does  not mean that there should be no  parental authority nor family government. Children must learn lessons ol  obedience if they are to be qualified  to become members of society and tho  State. This s article simply ad  vocates'. such a union oC the head  anJ the heart between parents and  children, such a blending of authority  find love, sympathy and wisdom, a=  shall make parents and children,  loving friends   for life. ;  Not Worth the Difference  DEATH TO JIM CROW  Today, May 8th, is crow killing day in the vicinity of Kelowna. Everybody with a gun will  turn out and shoot crows. No gun licence will be  required for thc day.   The Kelowna Courier tells  about it: .  "The object of this concentrated attack is to  lessen thc number of crows-in the district. Thc  trouble is that Jim Crow has been finding young  pheasant particularly good to his taste, to such an  extent lhat it is said nearly all the young game  birds arc being killed as soon as hatched. In addition, young chickens arc being carried away,  and, as a corn-growing district, Kelowna feels altogether that the crows would be belter dead  than alive. With this in view, permission has  been obtained from Supt. McMynn, of Vancouver  cf the Provincial police, lo let all persons wishing  to kill crows on May 8lh carry firearms wilhoul a  licence. It is also hoped lo obtain from thc city  permission to shoot crows within thc cily boundaries cn lhis day."  7 AN UxNDEUTAKEH'S STORY  ^J BE^lW  WE BEGAN ADVERTISING THE FACT  that we were selling at CATALOGUE PRICES.

The  figures may bc"-corrccl, bul what the Premier  failed lo explain was lhat all thc lucrative positions had hccn given to civilians, while the soldiers had lhc ill-paid and subordinate jobs practically thrown a I them. Mr. Oliver*knew very  well when hc penned his reply that the complaint  of thc returned men was not thai lhcy were not  offered positions, but lhat Iheir,claims were disregarded whenever there was an appointment, of  importance to he filled. By suppressing this fact,  he deliberately violated the most-essential requirement of sound evidence, viz. the truth, the  whole truth and nothing but thc truth be told.  "Antagonism to thc Government -was neither  shown nor felt hy thc returned soldiers until the  administration, by Mfs own actions, compelled  them  to believe* that partv service counted for  -   ^- Mb/  more with it than service to thc country, and to  the Empire."

Canada, evidently docs not think' the exchange  profitable lb-her.. The Guardian concludes wilh  lhe" remark that it is a new thing to suppress a  peerage in thc name of Democracy, but il might  noPalways be a bad thing."  The Manchester Guardian* is hardly right in  speaking of the distribution cf titles in Canada  as a Brilish invasion of the la's! generation, says  the Vancouver ^Pro^incc. Long before Confederation, titles were conferred on Canadians and  eminent men in othcr colonics. Much less in the  last generation lhan at- othcr limes havc these  honors been distributed among Canadians selected by Imperial authority.

It  bring* the disordered faculties  and functions. Into harmony, It  lubricates the mental bearings,  and prevents the friction which  monotonous, exacting business  engenders. It Is a divine gift  bestowed upon us as a life preserver, a health promoter, a Joy  generator, a success maker.  Life with the average mantis  too serious at best. Never lose  an opportunity for relaxation  from the stress, and strain of  your business or profession.  Every draught of laughter, like  an alr-cuahlon, eases you over  the jolts and the hard places on  life's highway. It tends to  bring every abnormal condition  back to the normal. It la a  panacea for heartaches, for life's  bruises. It Is a life prolonger.  "Laughter Is a positive" sweet-  ner of life, but, like good coffee, It must be well ol eared of  the grounds of III will. There Is  nothing on earth more delightful to listen to than witty  laughter, and nothing more tor-,  mentlng than the silly and  causeless cachlnatlon of fools.  Between a laugh and a giggle  ther* Is th* width of the horizon." Commend mi to a good  laugh���������������������������not to a llttls snicker*  Ing laugh, but sne that will  sound right through th* house.  Th* first duty w* ow* a child  Is to teach It to fling out It* Inborn gladness and Joy with th*  ���������������������������am* freedom and abandon that  th* bobolink dees when It makes  th* meadow Joyous with Ms  song. Learn* to taufh, and to  laugh aloud.

Address  The Central West, Limited, Wat-  rous, Sask.  The Okanagan Automobile Club  and  Good Roads Association  W;1AT IT STANDS   FOR  The OKANAGAN AUTOMOBILE CLUB AND  GOOD ROADS-ASSOCIATION as an organization is interested in the matter of good roads, ferry transportation, elimination of danger points, and sound legisla-..  lation for the motoring public, and this is a question  which should commend itself to every owner of or  driver of an automobile, as without same automobile  touring would not hold the pleasure it undoubtedly  does to the man who operates the universal, (which is  the best nam.e the serviceable Ford can be classed  under) or the heavy, touring car.  The Okanagan Automobile Club is always willing to v  co-operate   with   any  organization    for   the   advance-     >  -ment'-o'f its  objects' :and  has  no  fear'of competition  from any'other organization.   -Its".emblem will be recognized by all similar chibs at the Coast and Inland,     -  and the display of same always entitles the owner to  every courtesy which can be extended, and in this respect it is warmly reciprocated, visiting members of  other clubs receiving similar courtesies from ollicials  and members of the Club.  Any person of either sex, especially those driving a  car for personal business or pleasure, willing .to abide  by the laws and regulations governing motor traffic, is  eligible for membership, and whilst deriving benefit  himself from his own efforts* he is also benefitting  those who are associated with him, which is a matter  of satisfaction to the majority of men, whereas, the  motorist who fails lo join an association which is  - working for his benefit, but accepts all unproved conditions as a matter of course, is the first to resent  being.told in simple language that this is so, never-  theless.   .  The Club dues are very inconsiderable' and well  within the reach-of any person driving an automobile.  Full particulars can be obtained upon application to  the directors or to the Secretary, P. O. Box 267, Vernon, and in the interests of automobiling in this Province every Okanagan motorist not already a member  is urged to align himself at once with the Association,  which proposes to do mucll good work.
