The ohject of this  meeting is to decide upon a plan  foi; marketing the seed production of the Province. In order  to receive the financial assistance offered by the Dominion  Seed Pranch, it is necessary that  a properly accredited association of somc Kind be formed.  Mr. J.

Seed Growers' Association,  which says: "I havc just bcen  advised by the Markets Intelligence officer of the seed branch,  Ottawa, that the rural organizations, including farmers' clubs,  agricultural societies, farmers'  institutes, etc., in Ontario, havc  been circularized with the view  of getting them to use B.

A curtain of light clouds  was spread overhead from early  morning until evening, through  which thc sun could bc seen but  his rays could not penetrate. It  was pleasant and warm thc entire day, without the hot sunshine to make thc heat oppressive. Thcrc was a crowd about  one-half larger than that of last  year, and it was a very good-  Biit a surprise was in store.  When the league game was  called the odds were against Enderby. Thc local boys felt their  weakness. They went into thc  game cautious and canny; thcy  tightened up at thc start. Wm.  Jones in thc box and Lome  Landon behind thc bat did not  look as strong as it proved to be.  Herein was the surprise. Both  boys played a star game for the  opening innings.     Tlie   visitors  naturcdocrowd, with plenty of went down in one, two, three or-  pep" if things didn't go right  on the sport field, yet with none  of the grumble-bug spirit.  The gate and ground;receipts  exceeded those "of last year by  $262, last . year's total ground  receipts being $340 ancl this  year $602. The expenditure for  sports tliis year exceeded "those  of last year considerably, the  amount advanced by the city, at  the request of tlie celebration  committee being $470 this year,  against $314 lastyearr  A detailed "statement hasn't yet  been prepared by the secretary  of- the celebration committee,  and until this is prepared the exact figures will,not be known. It  is safe to say, however, that the  amount asked for by-the committee will not be overrun "to  any ...extent, and that, after deducting,the cost,of work on thc  grounds- and for . otber things,  not included in the celebration  committee's ' estimates, -, there  should - be a:^ balance of . abou t  $100 to" be��������������������������� turned oyer to-the  Enderby Hospital fund. / "This  amount, wilh the $80 from the  trig c'ay collections,, \*tIJ_ give  lhc Hospital Board a good start  on the amount required for tho  erection of an isolation ward,  now'so badly needed...  .

The road- race and  the hicycle races, on the programme for '9.30, were postponed until the evening to give  visitors a better chance to enter.  msh Sc&a������������������J Pasehall  The baseball game petwecn  Enderby and Armstrong-High  School teams, was one of the  most interesting features of the  day. The boys played a very  even game, the score * standing  7-U in Enderby's favor at the  close. This was the best rooted  game=of=Jhe=dayr���������������������������^  At U-30 the parade started  from the City rlall corner, with  the Armstrong City Pand in the  lead, and "Peace" on horseback  following. Then came the decorated autos, vehicles, etc., and  comic features afoot. , This feature of the celebration did not  come up to expectations.

The  home.team loosened up, and the  Vernon boys scored. Then'they  scored again and again until  they had 8 against Enderby's 15.  Armstrong Lacrosse Winners  .i  Tlie lacrosse game between  Armstrong and Vernon was one  of the best.' Throughout Armstrong showed up better in combination playing' than Vernon.  But *4t was really the <>york of  Harold Murray at Armstrong's  goal that-held Vernon down to  4* while Armstrong made 11.  Repeatedly shots were made on  the-goal at all angles, and some  at lightning speed, but only four  gotby.1 Mr. Murray-was a hard  proposition for the visitors.  ���������������������������v " _ Evening Sports . ^  (>^The'hbsereel?race^.and.wetjest  between Salmon "Arm, Vernon  and.

Jn both races a  second is- all there,'was. between the time of the winners  and the.losers. In ,the wet test  the -Vernon team failed to get  water in two trials. V   ,  ^The road race, supposed to  be a 2a/2 jiiilc run, was reduced  to one-half the distance owing  to the darkness. This was won  by Theodore Adams, with Harold Bawtry 2nd, and Ernest  JLahdon 3rd. This race was for  the Wilson road cup. With the  cup went a handsome Gillette  razor, given by A.Fulton; a pipe  and case, by W. J. Woods, and a  bill pouch for 3rd.  The bicycle race open to all  was__w.on-_bv A.  Hunter,_l_Pgy  Strickland 2nd, and G- Sparrow  3rd. .   '*.  In the boy's bicycle race, G.  Sparrow won Jlst, P. Leather-  dale 2nd and Andy Johnson 3rd.

E-  Bogert, at their farm home near  Enderby. The direct cause of  death was heart failure, the  young woman having suffered  heart weakness from early fife.  Somc weeks ago she suffered  a mild attack of "flu," but had  bcen up and about many days.  With hcr mother she enjoyed  the celebration sports May 24th,  going to her hpine in the evening. Not feeling well on reaching home she retired,' and it was  seen at once tliat serious complications were ensuing. Death  followed Monday morning.  Funeral service was held in  the Methodist Church Wednesday afternoon, when mourning  friends and acquaintance buried  the casket under numerous  beautiful floral pieces.

Joyce, late secretary  of the London and Home Counties  Divisional Council of the National  Federation of Discharged and  Demobilized Sailors & Soldiers, remarks: ' 'The failure I have founa  with the discharged men (especially with the old^ army men) is  not so much a tendency to be led,  but ah absence, or giving credit  for disinterested motives and  faith in anyone they themselves  have elected to a position of  authority, and this I think is the  principal danger in the future to  a united effort of the discharged  men of this country."

Now'it  is up beyond one billion five hundred million  dollars���������������������������overMoivr and one-half times as much as  in 1914.       "  Interest charges on the borrowings of the  country before the war amounted to twelve million dollars annually; today thcy are sevcirtimes  as heavy. There were practically no pensions to  pay four years ago; today lhcy total over fifteen  million dollars a year."  Tbese arc only parts of what we have been  called upon lo advance Cor thc security of living  our own lives free alike from what thc Canadian  Trade Commission calls Prussianism and Bol-  sbevism. Tbe Dominion will pay these charges  gladly, though naturally il cannot bc done by  |reverting lo whal was "normal" prior lo thc war,  Ibc impelling cause of il all. "Normal" then,  translated into terms of loday, would bc bankruptcy. Tbese are the things thc Canadian Trade  Commission is earnestly Irying lo bring homc lo  every man and woman, even tbe children, in lhc  Dominion. They touch the very heart of our  home and private well-being.  During the last  twenty years wc have advertised the glorious possibilities of Canada wherc-  cver  men   can  read.    Wc  wanted   immigrants.  Yet il was exactly  in  the four-year war period,  lhal wc were taught lhal our development docs'  not need to wail entirely for immigration.    Il is  well known   lhal  the productive capacily of  the,  average man and-woman in  the Dominion was  almost doubled.    Wc learned the strenuous "art  of doing morc."    Wc created  more wealth per  bead  of  the population by higher standards of  efficiency.     The  speculator,   tbe  land  "booster"  and   lhc  gambler in  all forms  of wealth  were  eliminated.  We learned to bc self-reliant in the Dominion  II was ...the greal est lesson, perhaps the greatest  benefit;'which"the war brought us. This is the  quality 'wliich we must still further cultivate, self-  reliance J in business, in agriculture, in all that  goes to make trade aiid to hold it. It can be  done permanently in peace time as it was done  for victory. It ;will be cohipulsory, because no  one else will pay our debts.  The y wagoner m Aesop wb'i Vv^ed to Hercules had his own strength revealed to him when  lie was made to put his shoulder to the wheel.  Wc are past the praying time in Canada.  Thcrc is no need for discouragement. The  transition from war to peace is morc complex  lhan was thought. Yet thc wealth of Canada remains today whal wc havc always said it was���������������������������  tremendous in its possibilities. In fact, the total  developed value is probably about $20,000,000,-  000. The thing lo do is lo develop il slill morc.  With and annual income which in 1918 was estimated at $2,500,000,000, thcrc should bc plenty  of margin'in our receipts for re-investing in  national business for ils expansion.  II is essential that the popple should know lhat  future prosperity hangs on the widening and  broadening of trade���������������������������trade in all lines, agriculture,,, mining, fishery, lumbering and manufacturing. Wc could makcoor produce wilhin our  oavii frontier many things wc import and so keep  here the money wc havc. Wc could export-many  morc tilings if wc organized our medium-sized  and smaller trades'Jn to groups, and so wc could  help to pay our debts wilh money brought in  from outside. , -  These arc Uic broad, cosy-to-grasp facts of thc  trade-position in Canada.

At "Spencer Grange,"- a sunny homestead amidst great trees overhanging  the St. Lawrence,' near the quaint old fortress city of Quebec, whero every square  foot of ground seems consecrated to historic memories, lives Sir James Macrher-  son LeMoine, Canada's genial historian) now working still in the sunshine of optimism,  though in his Eighty-first year.  liorn in the city of Quebec, a descendant of one of the old and distinguished  families.of Old,France, he spent some of his early years under the kindly care of  his Scotch maternal grandfather at Isle aux Grues. After completing his education at the Seminaire de Quebec, he entered the public service as collector of internal  revenue at the age of twenty-two. Three years later he was admitted to the bar  and practised law for a few years, but his heart was not in it. He preferred studying history and birds and writing about them. Surrendering to the spell of the  legendary and historic lore of his native city and its surroundings, he loved to  breathe new life into the old romances, or to dive into the sea of historic research  and investigation. The range of his work can be best suggested by the comprehensive title "Canadian History, Legend, Scenery and Sport"���������������������������a veritable treasure-  house of Canadian lore, written with a line literary touch, and pulsing with vital  human interest. * .  The love of birds, which led him forty-five years ago to write his first contribution -to periodical literature on land andsea birds around Quebec for the " Can- '  adian Naturalist," is a ���������������������������domir'Ating note in his life:    His.splendid collection of  Canadian birds in the museum of  his home attests his  loyalty to his feathered:  friends, arid "Spencer Grange" is the mecca of students of Canadian.annals, keenly  alive to the rare privileges it affords them.  His library rooms are filled to overflowing with books, pamphlets, pictures-  and literary treasures; but the most interesting shelves are those containing the  thirty volumes of his writings, eighteen of which are in English arid twelve in French.  Like'Professor Goldwin Smith, Sir James' printed books represent the smaller part of  his literary product, for he has numberless pamphlets and magazine articles to his  ���������������������������credit that are unfortunately buried in the oblivion of ephemeral periodicals.  His interest in contemporary matters is as deep and vital as ever; his mind  is keen, alert, sensitive as a barometer,to every impression, and he carries his years  with a'"race and ease that laugh at time and its terrors.    For many years president of������������������he Literary and Historical Society of Quebec, he has also had the highest  'literary honor in the" Dominion���������������������������the presidency of the Royal Society of Canada.

It is ignorance, superstition and incompetence in high  places. We have too many "holier-than-thou"  men and women such as thc Rev. John "Wesley  Hill, chancellor of Lincoln Memorial University,  Cumberland Gap, Tenn., who recently declared  that every Bolshevist and radical in the United  Stales should he deported "on a ship of stone,  wilh sails of lead, the wrath of God for, a gale,  and Hell for thc nearest port."  All of which proves nothing, except that thc  Rev. John Wesley Hill is himself a Bolshevist loo  ignorant lo know it.  We havc studied hard to discover a Bolshevist. Wc haven't yet found out what a Bolshevist  is. Today onc might havc a dear friend, whose  word and general demeanor arc above reproach.  Tomorrow that friend may havc an argument  with us and may" express's radical7 view with  which wc cannot agree���������������������������and, presto! that friend1  immediately becomes a Bolshevist. Bolshevists  arc godlike people like Reverend John Wesley  Hill. They are so tender and merciful with any  who do not agree with them���������������������������such * Christian  charity in any man is almost sure to breed Bolshevism.

Armstrong  Never did the Okanagan Valley, and particularly our own district, look better than it is  looking today. A drive over the roads in any  direction will convince one of the unsurpassed  beauty oi* the Valley and its marvelous productive  possibilities. Thc fruit orchards never gave  brighter promise of a bountiful harvest and the  fields of grain, grasses and roots are green with  rapid growth. If thc Okanagan does not havc a  banner season this year it will "be because oi insect pests or the ravages of preventable plant diseases, -iir  The dark, warm, murky days arc ideal loi  rapid growth. They arc also best for insect pests  and the development of plant disease. But it is  ! possible bv a timely application of the proper  "spravs lo control cfl'cclivcly, many of our. worst  diseases and posls. Spray materials have bcen  divided into three classes in Experimental Farm  Noles. First, there arc the fungicides, such as  Bordeaux mixture and lime sulphur wash, which  ore used to control or lo prevent the development of fungus diseases such as Apple Scab and  Polalo Blight. Secondly lhere arc poison sprays,  such as lead arsenate, for control of biting insects  such as thc Potato Beetle, Tent Caterpillar, etc.,  nnd, thirdly, the contact sprays, such as kerosene emulsion or nicotine sulphate, for thc control of sucking insects like plant lice.  By selecting the proper sprays under each of  these three headings, a combined spray contain-  LAND REGISTRY ACT  (Section 24)  In the matter of an application for  (���������������������������Junlicalc   certificate   of   title No.  4522a   issued   to   Amelia   Becker,  coverinq Lol 1, Block Hi, Map 408  Town of A nn slrong.

H. DUNBAR,  in* all three can bc used and thus,cin a single application, one has a fungicide and a complete insecticide combined- A good combined spray is  made up as follows: 4-4-40 Bodeaux, consisting  of four pounds unslaked lime, four pounds copper sulphate, and 40 gallons water, to which is  added-three pounds of arsenate of lead or two  pounds of arsenate of lime in paste form (if the  dry form is used, use one-half this quantity) for  controlling biting insects, and if aphids or plant  lice are present, one-third of a pint of nicotine  sulphate should be added or, as an alternative,  the lime sulphur could replace thc Bordeaux mixture.  Do not delay thc application until the disease  or pest has become evident by its ravages, but  make thc application in lime to prevent thc damage.   An application of spray is nol a cure.   Il is  aVcvcntativc.      Do not think thai one application is sullicienl.    Remember that at this season  of  the year foliage grows rapidly and  a  large  amouni   of-new;   leaf  surface  is  soon   exposed  idler an application is made, and it is this new  unedited surface which is a source of infection.  Three to four sprays during thc season will bc  necessary   to   keep   thc   leaves   covered and the  plants free from disease and pests.   Make the applications thoroughly, drenching all parts of the  plant with a fine mist-like spray.   A coarse spray  is not as effective as a finely-divided' one.

It js this phase of the proposed picnic which is  meeting with criticism on the part of returned  men aiid others. The contention is that wc already havc a united organization in the United  Farmers of B- C. and that to organize another  society lo cover the same field would be contrary  to good judgment and policy. 3    ,.  if  It is noted tha I-a number of prominent Chinese  merchants in Canada have formed a committee  lo further the interests of the thrift campaign  amongst the Chinese.

Thc   Dominion   law  buller   without   the   words     _---���������������������������  "Creamerv Butter"���������������������������as the case may bc���������������������������printed  on the butter wrap, is a blessing in disguise to the.  average farmer.  lt is the duty of every butter maker to comply with the law in this matter. Some butter  ���������������������������'makers have only a cow or two, and make so little  butler that it does not appear to them that they  can afford to have their butter wraps-printed.  They do not like the idea-of-having 500 or l000  butter wraps_on hand. To accommodate this  class of buttcrmakers, we have printed up  a -quantity of "Custom" Butter Wraps.. Thev are  printed with the words "Fresh Dairy Butter but.  do not bear the name of the maker. However,  Ihcse 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 100 or  50 lots.

'    -/  JNTEMPJ5RATE PROWPmQNJSTS  ./President Wilson threw a bomb into the camp  of the "drys" of the Uniled States last-week in  his message to congress when he strongly'urged  thc amendment of the national prohibition law  so as. to permit tlie manufacture, and sale of, beer *  and light wines." J-Jis argument was, in,crt'cct; tbat,  to, jn'ohibit this industry threw thousands of men  out of employment and in reality accomplished  little or no good to the community; thai open  moderate drinking,  duly regulated,, was not so  hariufult to the community as "blind pigs."  ��������������������������� This appeal to..thc comnionscnsc of the nation  immediately brought forth loud protests from  thc^leadcrs of. the "dry" forces, and President  things, assuredj 'especially-certain' phases of "crime-  thai arcTcommbnly supposed to he the direct con-  sequences' of. c'rink^clrunkenness famf immortality." '.While- drunkenness/ as ihc'.-tferm was "understood in pre-prohibition days, has> decreased,  a hew form of= drunkenness,/moi'e virulent "and  more dangerous, is fast taking its'place. We re-  ci\fo the results bf drinking the sdecoctions- sold  as spirilous liquors in "blind pigs" and by "bootleggers." two drinks cf which wills|vnock-a-man  out.

True friends.of  temperance cannot help but feel alanned at the  increase in this class of nicntal deterioration and  crime which is so insidious in its working as lo  Wilson was cordially condemned. The end is be dimcult ()f detection until'the victim is readv  not yet, but it is a safe bet that President Wilson f6r t]fft junalic asvlum or jail.

Wc wonder if  At the same time hc gave expression to the solid |certain of the prohibitionists do not sometimes  thought of thc temperate men and women of all'gct drunk with their own impetuosity and while  lands. Unquestionably thc lime is near when the jn that stale get carried away from thc realm's of  demand for a similar amendment of all war-time  prohibilion legislation will bc heard so loudly in  all quarters lhat legislators will hear and comply.  Such legislation will conic in Canada as certainly  as il will come to thc south of us.

He also J  gave instructions for thedrafting j  of a bulletin which will be sub-'  mitted to Berlin for approval.  The German counseller of the  legation,-who expressed the view  on his return from Berlin .that  the German delegation would  meet with bodily harm if they  did n<-t sign the treaty, said he  based his declaration oh the  peace hunger of the German  people.  President J. W. Taylor of the  Canadian Press association at the  annual convention of the B. C.  Division, recently held in Vancouver, said some , important  things to the newspapermen and  the public.  Mr. Taylor told the gathering  that the first duty of the press  now was to prepare itself for the  education of the public in order  that     after-the-war.    situations  might'be properly and adequately  met. The press could not educate  the public until it had ^'educated  itself." Honest,   intelligent. dili-J  gent and careful study should be  given to these problems, for the  press could   only .hope to   carry  'conviction when it had proved its  ability to deal' with   matters  it  undertook to discuss.   It must-established its right not only by its  intelligence, but also by itsrhon-  estv, he declairad.

It  would    be    obviously    useless,  therefore, for a press, which was  itself "tied up," to appeal to the  public to rise adove   party, clars  )r faction in sf tting the new and j  grave problems of the day.  There was   never,   he added,-  such a time   as the   present for  plain speakng. The press should,  therefore, be courageous and deal  with  matters fearlessly.   There  was no use in scolding or ridiculing,    and   dogmatic   statements  would not do. An endevor should  be made to get-at   the .root   of  each trouble and, after reaching  an understanding of the difficulty  to make it plain  to - the   public.  When evidence had  been   furn-1  ished of the honesty* of purpose^  and of the independence of  the'  press,'what the papers then said  would be received with due importance.'  "The press must relieve itself  of the suspicion that it is merely  the mouthpiece of capialism,"  continued the C.JP. A. president..
