Anyone keeping late hours a few  nights ago .must have felt well repaid if they witnessed the great  shafts of light in which the world  seemed to be developed. From early  night the display was remarkable,  but i,t did not reach its zenith until  after  midnight.  According to Mr. T. S. II. Shearman, Dominior weather observer,  Vancouver, the aurora is caused by  the appearance of spots on the sun.

These spots  it is said, were very bad Sunday,  which brought on Monday morning's  manifestations.  ' Telegraphic commun'icafcion( in  Rritish' Columbia apnd 'between Vancouver and all points east was seriously   impeded   by  the   phenomenal  *" electrical display. According to  telegraph company officials, the  present visitation is the heaviest experienced  for a number of years.  Aurora, "as a rule, makes its presence felt in the hours of darkness.  The present "spell" however began  at 5:45 in the morning and in the  operating room of .the C. P. R. telegraph office at Vancouver it was at  first thought that all wires east of  Sicamous had gone dow,n. Soon,  however, the trouble was diagnosed  as" aurora, that mysterious electric  force in the'atmosphere which, when;  - visible to the. eye, is known as the  Northern Lights. _        -  Acinous feature of the aurora is  ���������������������������that its effect'is only, felt upon wires  running east and west.- .Those running north and .south, except in very  isolated cases, are never troubled  with the manifestations. Its efTect  upon the telegraph .system is felt  in one of two ways, it either robs  the wires entirely of electrical current or ft puts so much current on  them that it is extremely difficult or  impossible  to  operate.  On Monday night the atmosphere  was so charged by electricity that  am experiment was made. The telegraph wires between Vancouver and  Calgary were grounded rn'd all, loca!/  Chas.

Many expressions of regret were  heard at the report of the death of  George Stowards. We shall miss  him at our social meeting. He was  a very frequent visitor to Mara and  had  many  friends here.  Wm. Witala had the misfortu'ne  to lose a heifer when the ice was  breaking up in the river. After  much trouble one of the two that  broke through the ice was saved  but it was impossible to save the  other.

Grindrod people were shocked  on Saturday to hear of the sudden  death of George Stowards, one of  Grindrod's most popular and respected young people. George was  well known by everyone and will  be greatly missed. After the funeral service held in the Grindrod  church he was laid to rest in the  Enderby cemetery.

Coal  bunkers which will hold 200 tons  will be built at once at the railway  spur near the cement plant.

"Tho action of the Senate is the  more disgraceful 'because the rejection was brought about by a union between a group of Democrats  and the irreconcilable foes of the  treaty whom the Democrats have  been .denouncing for eight months.  If tlhe action of the Senate is permitted to stand, we invite confusion  at home and chaos abroad.  "But the action of the Senate  should not be allowed to stand as  the verdict of the nation. The majority in Congress should assert itself at once, first by declaring the  war at an end; second by declaring  in favor of the nation's participation in the League of Nations on  such terms as the majority shall  agree upon; third,- by proposing an  amendment to the constitution permitting a majority of the Senate and  House to ratify a treaty by joint  resolution and in the same way define the nation's foreign policy, thus  making it as easy to end a war as  to begin it." '.. -     '  A meeting of the Armstrong  branch of the United Farmers of B.  C. was held in the Municipal Hall,  Armstrong, March 20th. President  Makoviski was in the chair.

During the election  campaign the qualifications of the candidates for  thc high office were not mentioned by the parishioners. It was clearly a case of size of family.  And Spruggins would have won had not a fiery  old half-pay captain taken tip Bung's cause. .You  see, in Dickens' time the returned soldiers' vote  was a big factor, as it is today.  When* we first read lhe account of '"The Election of Beadle," wc thought lhat lhe writer drew  on his imagination for much of his. material.  Bul aflcr reading accounts of lhc goings on al  the Victoria legislature, we have changed our  mind. Perhaps Mr. Dickens was mercly reporting what \yas actually going on in thc parish:  Tlie big business before the House at Victoria  THURSDAY,    MARCH    25,    1920.  live in its application.   T he timeis  adoption of such a policy. .People are realizing jasl Wcck������������������sccms to havc been whether a sister of  ���������������������������x brother-in-law of lhc  nephew of thc wife of  today as never before what they have lost by  the government hanging on lo the old patronage  system of road-building. Thcy realize now that  it has not been road building al all. but dirt-  slinging patronage. And thc cry now is "Pave  the road and increase the load." Automobile  owners particularly, and everyone who has lo  do any hauling over the roads, would nol seriously object if a special road tax were levied  sufficient to properly build the roads and keep  them in repair. But everybody is heartily sick  of seeing thc public funds' spcnlVm fair-weather  roads lhat go lo pieces with the CaU'rains and arc  Yoczc up  the  again  with   llie  first  of  arc:   impassable  virtually out of commission until th  in  winter., then   go  spring  thaws   and  month or two.  Possibly the Governmcnl has formulated or  is formulating a road policy of the broad-gunge  type; possibly that mad policv is lo go inlo effect. If so it will meet with thc hearty approval  of all British' Columbia. If such a policy lias  not been adopted, avc would suggest lhat the  Public Works Department give llie'syslcm of  road maintenance adopted in some of Ihe older  provinces a try-out here. Wc particularly refer lo thc onc-maii-onc-scction policy, i. c. a man  permanently on thc job, covering a road mileage  that hc could properly attend lo. and no more,  with a horse and carl lo carry road filling.  The drawback to lhe road policy of the past  and present is in the fact thai the work put  upon the roads ..is allowed to be swept away or  the roads to bc cut up by ru'ls.:'water holes and  dust pans.    The road1 gang1 does  the work,  Ihen  lhc Minister of Finance has a son as bookkeeper  in one of the departments of the-, Governmcnl;  whether lhc son of the ncice of thc Premier's  wife is on the payroll of the Government as a  weed inspector; whether the brother of the wife  of thc attorney-general is con the payroll and  whether somc ycars ago a brother of the then attorney-general drew Government money.  From thc newspaper accounts thc session has  been largely occupied with long speeches by  orators on one side recalling alleged scandals of  years gone bv. When these orators sit down  orators on the olher side arise, place thumbs in  arm pits and proceed to expatiate on thc dolor another imoHis of the speakers they follow.  Wc might note in passing lhat thc people who  do most of thc talking arc" the city politicians.  You never hear of cleclon scandals in thc rural  districts and you rarely hear members from the  upper.counlry and from the. coast districts making loud and blatant speeches. Always watch thc  politicians from thc big cities for long and resounding periods.���������������������������Home and Farm, Vancouver  Leaving Families Unprovided For  One of the distressing results of lhe war has  been the deserting of their families by a large  number of returned soldiers, creating a situation which the Federal Government has becn  slow lo realize or. if appreciated, little seems to  havc been done so far to. cope wilh this unfortunate development. In a community such as  ours,  says   thc^ Summerland   Review,   such   un  allowed to grow. With a man on thc road al  all time, and with a certain section for him to  keep up to a set standard to compare with thai of  the roadman behind him and ahead of him,  would surely produce a higher standard of road  And it is doubtful if thc cost  greater, if as great, as the svslem  which has proved so inefficient.  won it!  lie  any  we have lodav  Passing of a Woman Pioneer  of   floral  heavily-  mcn.

One cannot grieve at  the passing ol* the pioneer woman; one can only  stand uncovered in silence, and.think, and think.

Bolander died at Sawtclle, Cal.. on  March loth, and there she was buried: unknown  and unsung. But what matters lhal. Hundreds  in lhe mining camps of the West will honor hcr  .memory. Of her going the Kaslo Kootenain says:  "The late Mrs. Bolander came with her husband to New Denver from Tdaho in 1893 and  lived in lhat town until last fall when she moved  to California to join her husband * who was receiving medical treatment at thc Soldier's Home.  Deceased was a pioneer whose life, whose quiet  home ways and influence made the frontier  ���������������������������mining camps better for her presence. A good  woman, friendly and'helpful." her quiet, cheerful  welcome was a constant reminder of homc and  home life to many who for a time had lost their  bearings."  Parish Politics at Victoria  Dickens once wrote ah amusing sketch entitled  "The Election of Beadle.''' Mr. Bung finally got  in, receiving a majority over Mr. Spruggins.  Bung was the father of five children. Spruggins  made a. big campaign out of thc fact that he and  lo suffer want, and some measure of relief is  being extended lo Ihem by the Municipalilv. ,11  would seem that the only course open to the  Municipal Council is lo ha\c the head of the  household arrested and brought back on a  charge of desertion.

They close the windows'ancf doors, aye, even pull the bedcover over  the head and breath the fetid body poisons, instead of, throwing the windows wide open and  allowing the healing ozone to reach the lungs.  Many who arc recovering from influenza and  pneumonia Jacjc appetite and feel weak. Fresh  air is onc of the best tonic?.' Tt beats anything  you can taHe from a hoftle. ft will a rouse appetite, bring color to pale cheeks and strengthen  lungs if they have been weakened by influenza or  pneumonia. Physicians who would make their  patients well all tell them to. remain in the  open air as much as possible and be clothed  warmly. Any draughts should be avoided, windows should be open at the top and bottom in  every room of the homc, especially in thc bedroom. Tlie outside air at night and in rainy  weather i'- ;ust as necessary ;is it is during thc  day or in fine weather; therefore, do not shut  your bedroom and living room windows at night  or when it rains. '<���������������������������  Persons who, in recovering from influenza or  pneumonia, have lost in weight nnd strength,  should not depend unon medicine alone. Good  food is a more valuable tonic. Food should be  of the kiqd that gives the greatest nourishment.  Eggs and meat are excellent food, for some  persons. Others there are who do not eat meat at  all,1- yet arc quite as robust as those who do. Put  either meat or ��������������������������� eggs, when fried, arc not as  readily digested as when coolccd otherwise.  1 IVfeals should be taHen at regular hours so that  the stomach has time to digest thc food. However, if onc has lost weight, one should take a  glass of milk and a slice of hread and butter or  jelly hetween meals. Milk is recommended as  one of the most important foods for building up  a weakened body. AH food should be chewed  slowjy and well. This is of far greater import-  ^ance^than^what^yomeat.       . . y  REAL   [ESTATE   DEALERS  Legislation   Asked   to   Prevent   Re.  currence   of   Boom   Day   Flyers.  At a meeting of the Armstrong  Board ' of Trade held last 'week a  communication from ' the* Van-  co'uve r Board of Trade asked  that a' bill now' before the" Legisla'.  ture providing for the licensing of  rreal estate agents and Teal estate  salesmen be endorsed. After it had  been' shown that the purpose of the  bill was the protection o'f the public  fronu the unscrupulous "agent, and  the prevention of the recurrence of  ���������������������������the real estate conditions of 1913,  the bill was endorsed. Incidentally  it was stated that th^re were nineteen men "paying the local business  tax of five dollars as real estate  men.  An appeal to the Railway Com_  mission of Canada (for uniform  freight, passenger and express rates  on a mileage basis was also endo/s-  ed. This appeal originated with the  United  Farmers.  A lengthy letter from Hon. M*ar_  tin Burrell re request fo a-new post,  office was read. The .keyword with  reference to the government was  "retrenchment" and for tlie people  "patience". Postmaster Wright reported that he had' discussed the  matter with the postoffice inspector  recently and that the probability  was that in the JYale constituency  only Kamloops, Kelowna. and Penticton, where sites for new postoffices  had been purchased before the war  and where the need was even greater than in Armstrong, would have  new postoffices built this year.- He  stated- also that it was a rule that  the government should not buil-1  postoffices until the" revenue jiad.  roached $10,000. Up to that.'point  postoffices were always established  in rented premises. The revenue for  the current year ending March 31  at the local postoffice would t.oral  about $8,400. In another-year he  expected' it would reach $9,400. .  c In .'discuss'-;rig ' the subject -the  members felt.that.it would be ad.  -visable to keep on pressing the marl  tor^with^a view to a site being ptir_  chased this year and the office fnL  lowing next year for certain. - "Accordingly Mr. Winter's motion to  hat effect  was  passed.  A communication from the Agent  General for B. C. in London, England, requesting a-supply of stuffer  leaflets re Armstrong being considered it was decided to procure 200 0  and  forward  them.  Mr. "Geo. A. Smith gave a very  lucid andi interesting account of the  convention, of the Provincial Boards  of Trade at which he had represented  Armstrong.     There had "been  E"-  32 boards represented with 150  delegates present." In passing Mr.  Smith paid a tribute to the ability  of Mr. Chris Spencer as a presiding  officer. There were not many of the  questions dealt with that referred  to this section but a few were oC  local   interest.     Among these   was  ;i  Automobile Jollity for Fire Pamage  The Insurance Pepartment. at Ottawa has sent  out a notice to insurance companies which insure against liability for property damage to  the effect that if the company has authority lo  transact fire insurance, it may issue a policy  which insures the. owner of an automobile  against his liability or loss which may be occasioned by fire which results from collision or  any other accident in connection with the operation of the owner's car. Prior to this pronouncement by the Insurance Department, it has  been generally held that this clement of loss and  liability could not be insured against. Automobile owners should now see tliat their policy  either contains a clause or other wording making the company lable for this element of risk,  or should have endorsement to that effect attached thereto.  fordstow  Most economical and effective to operate; most serviceable tractor any farmer can invest in.

A writer in the Vancouver Province says:  "The fact that at present prices  10 cents spent on bread will buy  about two and a quarter times the  amount of nourishment that 10  cents spent on potatoes exx buy,  shows how absurd; it is for housewives and restaurant proprietors to  waste money "on .buyiing potatoes  now. That is all the more evident  when we consider the further fact  that bread is in every way a better  food for digestion; and., body-building evr^n \vhen\ potatoes are sold  at less than half the present extortionate   price  charged   for   them.  "Careless and extravagant .purchasers   of   potatoes   need   to   reflect  d  that about 20 per cent of the pu*r_  chased weight of potatoes is wasted  in peeling, and beyond that 6 2.6  per cent is water which they can  ���������������������������get practically for nothing by turning on the water-tap. Further, how  few users of potatoes realize how  much better a meal they cain have  by toasting oi\ frying bread with  meats and other foods in place of  potatoes.  "The extortionate price of potatoes is the signal to warn us from  buying potatoes till they fall to  that, reasonable level. T. for ome,  will not buy potatoes except , for  seed to grow my own. Users of po..  'itoes need only take that sim'ple  course to save themselves, their  families and customers from being  plundered."  AISLE. TO MAKE A  BALANCE.  A   SIMtlN'G   SUGGESTION.  Leisure is that profitable time of  opportunity to get far enough away  'from your business to sec it as it is  ACCESSORIES  are n.obiceable. The [little details  of your toilet are of essential importance. A neat-fitting** collar in  ono of the season's new shapes,  neckwear that is becoming, shirts  of harmonizing color and design,  hosiery of quality and gloves that  are correct are necessary adjuncts  to a good appearance.  We are headquarters for the new.  est and  best in  MEN'S  FURNISHINGS  Spring .approaches and the  thoughts of the busy housewife turn  to seasonal cleaning. As Alderman  Meikle forci'ily pointed cut at the  Council meeting on Monday night","  there is need of. the thoughts of thc  busy businessman to turn' in"*1 the  same direction, especially so far as  the lnp.es of the dowri-town section  of. the city are -concerned. JWaste  paper, old..,rubbers,'shreds of cloih.  ing, .rusty tins, broken bottles and  other like debris do not- form a very  attractive spectacle, and visitors are  quite entitled to form the impression lhat the people of Kelowna, select  the lanes as a garbage ground.  The usual   spasmodic  spring tidy-  up   is   well   in   its  wa;-,     but     there  should   be   something   better,   something more  permanent.   If  the spirit  of  citizenship   was strong .enough to  have   a   dominating     influence,     the  mere  shame  of   presenting  an     unkempt town'to the view of strangers i  would   keep   our   streets  .and   lanes-  tidy, but it seems too much to hope  for  juch   a - keen   public   conscience.  Private   effort   is   irregular   and   un.  reliable,   an.d   the     proper     remedy  would   seem   to  be  a  municipal   garbage   system,    taxing   occupants   or  owners  of property a  fixed  sum  per  month     for     keeping     their     street  frontage and lanes neat, the amount  to   be  collected  -monthly  along   with  xifa^^trrlft-ir-^m u n k-i p a 1���������������������������c h a r ges-=-f *^  j water ancl  light.     The service might  be confined to the more thickly settled  portions of the town and  could  be carried  on  easily  by  the scavenger   in   addition   to  his  other  duties,  tho   monthly   fees,   or   a   portion   of  them,   going   to   remunerate   him.���������������������������  Kelowna  Courier.
