 I   i  i  I  ik  Kettle Valley Orchardist  17TH YEAR���������No  '40  GRAND FORKS   B. C, FRIDAY, AUGUST 2, 1918  $1.00 PER .YEAR  Sixteen, 1 Month for Not  Registering; Nine, Six  Months for Theft  A contingent of DoukhoborR from  the North Fork district furnished  our citizens with plenty of diversion  from the ordinary everyday humdrum life this week,- and for.the  first time since the conflict in Europe sCarted the war news had a  local competitor.  Early in the week Provincial Constable Stansfield brought down a  drove of Douks and lodged them in  jail. The. next day he came down  with an auto overloaded with them.  This made sixteen, and they were  all confined in the same jail. All  were charged with having failed to  to register in the federal man-power  census, and, besides, some of them  were also charged with having stolen  and destoyed a  neighbor's harness.  This particular sect of Doukho-  bors does not believe in working  animals, and by destroying the har  ness they evidently imagined that  they had started an effective propaganda to liberate"ther-hT-"���������'":"". 7 7;  At the trial before Magistrate  Cochrane on- Wednesday the sixteen were sentenced to thirty days  in tbe Nelson jail at hard labor.  Nine of these were committed for  trial before Judge Brown in the  county court on a charge of theft.  At a speedy tiial before Judge  Biown yesterday, the nine offenders  charged with theft were found guilty  and sentenced to six months in the  Nelson jail at hard labor.  The prisoners were taken to Nel  ton last night by the polic'e authorities. Before entraining they engaged  in singing of hymns in a foreign  language, and in this they isere  joined by the visiting  Doukhobors.  THE FOURTH YEAR  OF TELE GREAT WAR  Four years ago today the German  kaiser, by declaring war on Russia,  kindled a flame that has swept  round and round the world,and tbat,  still raging unquenched, threatens  not only to consume more lives and  more wealth than any previous war,  but even to wreck civilization itself,  says the Youth's Companion. Scarcely a human being anywhere on tbe  earth can be said to be unaffected by  tbe struggle; four-fifths of the population of the world are citizens or  subjects of the nations thar are actually belligerent.  In looking back over those four  years we find that certain events  stand out in each year as landmarks  in the progress of the war. The  Marne, Ypres, Tannenberg, the  Donajec,   call   to   our   minds-  the  the other, the tragical failure of the  entente   policy   in   the   near   east  and the consequent destruction   of  ittle Russia.  The battle of the Sommp, Bagdad,  tbe submarine campaign, the Russian revolution and the entrance ol  America into the war are the significant incident of the third year, in  which Germany, forewarned of the  Russian collapse, dared in its faithlessness and its cruelty to challenge  not Europe only but the whole  world to battle, and in which Britain regained in Mesopotamia the  prestige it lost in the Dardanelles.  The fourth year is memorable for  the events of which Brest'Li to vsk  is the symbol, for the Italian reverse  at Caporetto, for the capture of Jerusalem, for the great battles in  Picardy, Flanders and Chamgagne,  and for the appearance on the battlefields of a great American army.  We have seen the Russian nation,  the Slav peoples���������nay, even democracy and humanity itself���������betrayed  by the narrow-minded and tyrannical Bolsheviki; we have seen German ambition for empire in the east  satisfred, for the moment at least,  beyond the fondest dreams of four  years ago. We have seen Germany  make a mighty attempt to win by  arms in the west what the: folly of  its enemy���������-.surrendered in the east,  and. we have seen that attempt  foiled���������partly, we are proud to say,  by the bayonets of our own brave  soldiers. We have seeua million  American troops with all their sup  plies transported across three thou  sand miles of sea and landed safe in  France, an exploit that our enemies  believed impossible and our friends  doubtful.  There must be a fifth year of the  great war, perhaps a sixth or even a  seventh. The world has not yei paid  in blood the full price of its.deliver  ance from the domination of ihe  sword. The swaggerers oi Berlin  think that they have won in the east  and believe that ���������j.hey are at least invincible in the west: They tell their  people that the victory is won, that  it only remains for the allies to admit their defeat. But ��������� on the threshold of the fifth year we. see signs  that cheer us. We do not believe  that the war is finally won- even in  the east. We do not believe that  Russia will forever be untrue to the  cause of humanity or that she will  submit fo'rever to the tyranny of the  German. We do not believe that the  kaiser's army is invincible in the  west. When- there is an army of  two million Americans on the fighting line shoulder to shoulder with  the French and the British soldiers,  we hope to see it demonstrated that  Might which has the Right behind  it can accomplish what Might alone  has found impossible.  SHIP CUM  Stewart-Calvert Company-  Said to Have Shipped  150 Tons  A report from Cascade says that  the Stewart-Calvert company has  already made two shipments from  its chrome property. One of these  shipments was to Pittsburg and the  other to Niagara, Ont. The total  number of tons shipped was -150,  and another of 100 ious is waiting  to be moved.  The same company is said to have  closed negotiations with W. S. Phillips for a bond oh similar property  adjoiniug the one now being worked  by them. ,-',  'Operations thought to be on the  Wolverton, adjoiuing the claims be  ing mined by the Stewart-Calvert  company, were discovered to be  taking place near the line of the  latter property. Engineers who were  surveying the Stewart Calvert claims  made the discovery, and it is said  that the company claims about fifty  tons of the ore.  THE WEATHER  The following is the minimum  and maximum temperature for each  day during the past week, as recorded by the government thermometer on E. "F. Laws' ranch:.  Max.    Min.  headpiece may have given the  inven- |  tor his first idea. j  According to a writer in the Illustrated World, the innovations consist of rubber cushion shock-absorbers,  an inner helmet to which the metal  covering is affixed and a protection  for the eyes and nose. When pntting  on this headpiece, the soldier first  dons a .skullcap of soft felt, covered  with smooth oilcloth on the outside.  The cap snaps by a hook-and eye arrangement to the visor of the metal  helmet itself. That is the only attachment, so that when a headpiece is  struck by a bit of shrapnel or other  missile it can give way glancingly to  the biow. Anything except a smashing, direct hit is completely deflected.  The soft skullcap lessens the shock  aud to give added protection soft rub  ber pads are inserted beneath the  metal to keep the heavy jar from  causing concussion of the brain. A  wide, sloping brim protects the neck,  and a metal nose guard protects the  eyes, nose and temples.

Making' Forests Fireproof  People are becoming aware of the  tremendous loss to Canada through  farest fires. Fires is not the necessary  accompaniment of settlement and can  be stopped. The cost of equipment  and patrol necessary to stop fires  amounts to only a small fire insurance premium on the value of the  forest. How fires are caused, the influence of the weather, aud what  amount of damage they do are told in  Bulletin 64, ''Forest Fires in Canada,  1914 1G," just issued by the Director  of Forestry. This is the first attempt  on systematic lines to give the statis  sics of fires for the whole of Canada  and to classify their causes. By this  means the most prolific sources of fires  are shown so that means may be applied for their prevention. Those interested in this subject will receive a  coppy of this bulletin free upon application to the Director of   Forestry.  Private Correspondence  to Enemy Territory  Private correspondence for destination in territory occupied by the enemy���������excepting enemy occupied Belgium and the enemy occupied parts of  France���������may now be addressed direct  in the ordinary way instead of being  forwarded through an authorized intermediary. Such correspondence,  however, must only deal with private  news, and will be subject ������������������ to censorship. Items which contain any information whatever in ro������ard to mili  tary, economic or political conditions  obtaining in Canada or in any allied  countries, or which contain uudesira  ble information of any kind, will be  detained.  Business communications from Can  ada to destinations in territory which  bus been certified enemy territory under the Trading with the Enemy  Proclamation require a license from  the secretary of state for Canada.  Correspondence intended for des  tinaqions in enemy countries (as distinct from enemy occupied territory),  or to those destinations in enemy occupied Belgium aud enemy occupied  France to which correspondence may  be forwarded, may still be sent  through the medium of Thos. Cook &  Son, 530 St. Catherine St., West,  Montreal Apdlication .should be made  to Thos. Cook & Son, Montreal, for  information in this .connection.  LUES ARE STILL  IS  A   Day   of Calm Is Followed   by   Another  .Mighty. Blow  After a short period of relative  ca m on the Soissons-Reims salient,  the central and western sections 61  the battle front again have been the  scenes of mighty struggles.  On both sides the allied forces  have achieved notable gains of  ground, which, observed on the war  maps, seemingly place the German  armies on the from of them in a  precarious position.  In battles extending from the  region immediately south of Soissons  to the northwest at Fere-en-Tarde-  nois and southwest to the last named  towmover the upper portion of the  left branch of the "V" salient running ten miles eastward from Nesles  to Ville-en-Tardenois and with St.  Gemme as its southern base,French.  British and American troops have  pushed back the armies of the German crown prince.  Northwest of Fere the entire elbow  of tbe line where it turned eastward  along the northern bank of the  Ourcq has been blotted out,''making  the line a straight one from Fere to  Hartennes and giving the allies  mij'jb belter ground over which to  work in further outflanking Soissons  on the southeast and for pressing on  toward Fismes in conjunction with  the troops, particularly the Americans, now holding strategic points;  north and northeast'of Fere.  Since the battle, of the Marne be  gan, July 15, the allies have taken  more than 34,000 German prisoners.

Some people, however, have to talk for about six months before  they say anything. This may be sufficient  cause for our contemporary bringing up the  subject last week.  Under favorable conditions a reduction of  the aldermanic representation in the city go v-  ernment might be desirable, and if all men  were angels the experiment might even result ;.n a substantial saving to the ratepayers.  But the proposed plan of reducing the representation to two members is also fronght with  some dangers. In the,past we have knovyn  a council that required four of its members to  watch two of their fellow-aldermen. A council composed of only tvvo members might be  elected in the future of the latter class of men.  Then the city would have to pay dearly for its  experiment. There is only the danger that-a  two-man conncil would became more or-1 ess of  a family affair. It certainly could be brought  more easily under the influence of the beneficiaries of the city, whose only interest .in the  city is to get all they can out of the city  treasury. This possibility should be guarded  against when a change is contemplated. An  honest desire to reduce the administrative cost  of the civic government is praiseworthy, .-but  it should not be done at the expense" of efficiency, or in such a manner that it would  tempt our officials to practice graft. If the  ratepayers want the administrative expenses  reduced, and wish the members of the council to serve free, they should seen re a pledge  to this effect from the candidates at election  time, and then make them live up to that  pledge. In the meantime we shall look with  suspicion on any reform movement fostered  by a beneficiary of the city, as we believe it is  only an attempt to get the patronage of the  city more firmly under his control.  such as for which they have never dreamed.  ', Six billion dollars, the amount of the next  American Liberty loan, is a lot of money, but  how much few people can realize. This sum,  converted to one-dollar bills and laid end to  end would make a' strip of greenbacks 699,000  miles long, or enough to belt the earth at the  equator just twenty-eight times.  Berlin is, of course, the objective of every  Canadian soldier now in France. They should  not forget, however, that there are other interesting places in Hunland. Potsdara, for instance, is only sixteen miles from Berlin, and  their mission''will not be complete unless they  also visit that place and all the other dam  towns in Germany.  Of 215 points represented by the Canadian  Northern railway from the three prairie provinces, 121 show that crop conditions are fav-  oraqle and 28 unfavorable, while 13 indicate  a need of rain. Forty-four mentioned frost  and five announce slight damage from hail.  The war, like most tragedies, has its humorous episodes. One of them was the German  bombardment of an American pic-and-dough-  nut truck that broke down on the way to the  front. The accident occurred in plain sight of  the enemy, whose shells'immediately began to  fall around the truck. The driver and his helper  tied, but the bombardment continued for half  ah hom". That night a rescue party went out  to try to save the truck, but the Germans discovered them and shelled the place for seven  hours more. Then a motor-cycle man brought  word that, although the ground was cut up all  round the seven thousand doughnuts and one  thousand apple pies were still safe. Thereupon  a hundred men volunteered to go after the  pastry that night, jind got it. Shoot a Yankee  soldier or gas him or blow him up and you  meroly vex him, but try to take away his  doughnuts or his pie and you make him viciously peevish.���������Youth's Companion.  tT-  =^  Comfortable   Convenient  Needful  Whether your occupation is one tbat requires mental or man-    ���������  uel work, you need good eyesight.

LAND REGISTRY ACT  The Sun has now survived four years of  the great war without resorting to price-raising and profiteering. The task of keeping-  alive has been accomplished without the aid  of lottery fakes to secure subscriptions. Neither  have we been compelled to advertise the paper  as the official organ of any city or corporation  in order to secure foreign advertising. The  paper has kept alive in spite of the fact that  this city, like all other towns, contains its  quota of people who have no other means of  judging the merits a newspaper than by the  number of inches its pages measure. The  Sun will be here to celebrate ihe alliid victory, even if the war lasts four years more.  Some men have so much respect for the  truth that they always keep at a distance  from it.  Many men living in towns today have spent  most of their busy lives on the farms. They  have earned their retirement. But the need  for saving the 1918 crop is very great. Eetired  farmers have a splendid opportunity to help  out in the present crisis, and many have volunteered to work on neighboring farms for the  rush period. Every one that can do so is needed, for experienced men are at a premium.  Their knowledge of how to do   things  would  Let Us All Strike  The American and Canadian private soldiers  are the plutocratic soldiers of the world today, getting $1.10 at a minimum, to the few  cents per day tliat the French, English and  the Italian soldier gets.  It is rather interesting to contemplate what  would happen if these soldiers of France,  England, Italy, Canada and the United States  suddenly decided to go on strike and demand  a big iucrease in pay.  If they all quit work together and laid down  their arms, the result would be a world dominated by the Hun.  We would, as we slaved under Hun rule,  I be exceedingly likelyto accuse those boys of  j boys of being yellow, would we not?  ! Yet this habit of striking that is so prevalent on the part ofthe civil population, in  the face of war conditions, is exactly the same  thing.  While men in various parts of Canada and  the States are getting four, five and six dollars  ;per day, they are, many of them, striking for  , more.    Of   course  there  has been a raise in  I the  cost of living, while   there   are   various  interests that are working graft or profiteering  of one sort or another.  ! But let the profiteers profiteer. At the end  ofthe war the common plugs will simply take  all the profits and use 'em for paying war  debts���������Kaslo Kootenaian.

BRITISH COLUMBIA  TELEPHONE COMPANY, Ltd  Prevention of Fires  The provincial government has in-  ���������Hipurateu a movement, the aim of  which is to reduce the enormous waste  due to preventable fires. The proposal  is to establish a provincial bureau of  fire prevention, which will operate  through local bureaus, the member  ship to be composed of persons repre-  sentave of the government, the municipalities, the fire department, the  insurance companies, and all bodies or  interests able and willing to render  aid in this connection. The bureau  will prepare propaganda, furnish information, and plan a campaign to  diminish the loss by fire.  There is a tremrndous field for an  organization of this character. In  Canada the annual value of property  ��������� de-it *')y-id by firj approaches tlie sum  or." !$3 for every man, woman and child,  and surpasses even the figures for the  United States, where a campaign is  being vigorously waged over the  length and breadth of the land in  Europe the avereigs loss per capita is  well under 50 per'cent, proving that  conditions in America call for a cure.  This "yearly waste of our resources is  not inevitable, for countless statistics  demonstrate that about 60 per cent of  the fires which occur could be prevented by the exercise of more   care.  The commission of conservation sitting a"t Ottawa has thbroughly investigated the whole subject throughout  the Dominion, and it has published a  book, emphasizing the ueed of action.  It is perhaps needless to point out  that, engaged as we are in a war,  when industries, plant, food, and materials of all kinds are of vital importance, there is an additional reason  for taking all possible steps to preserve property. It is not enough to  increase production unless at the  same time what exists is safeguarded.  Every fire destroys food or material,  which though compensated by insurance money, diminishes the available  supply aud requires labor   to  replace.  It is earnestly desired to enlist in  this', movement every agency, which  can render service. A geneaal conference of the parties interested will be  held as soon as possible to formulate  plans fur prompt action.   .

We explained  that there were no medicines to, spare.  But one of the natives said that did  not matter. He had himself been ill  at Moulmein and went to an English  doctor, and the English doctor wrote  some charms on a piece of paper and  that made him quite well. In proof  whereof he produced a prescription  written by the English doctor, which  he had put in a little bag and worn  ever since ronnd his neck.  At his earnest solicitation, we wrote  a charm for the old lady It read,  however, "May God make you well  soon," instead of Ac. Ros. iii.'T., Cal.  praep. gr. xxx., and the like. To the  great surprise of the amateur doctor,  but apparently to the surprise of no  one else, the old lady -'turned up"  the next morning.before, the caravan  started and said that she felt quite  well.   ���������'.'���������'���������..���������'.-.  "And t think that a .well-dressed  girl, with .filthy, malodorous rags in  her hands, is acting an insincere  farce," commented Tolstoy. .',...  "I ask you not to say that!', exclaimed Turgeney, hotly.  "Why should I not say what I am  convinced is true?"   retorted Tolstoy.  "If you say that again, I'll box  your ears!" Turgeney cried,white with  rage, and rushed from the room. A  duel was narrowly averted.  Afterwards, these famous men became reconciled, and on his deathbed  Turgeney wrote an affecting note to  Tolstoy, addressing him as "the  greatest writer of our Russian   land."  A Considerable'Amount  A certain little village in the West,  stands some distance from the nearest  good supply of pure   water,   and   Pa  trick is the man who transports barrels of drinking water to the homes  of the village.  One day, as Patrick halted at the  top of the river bank, a man famons  for his inquisitive mind stopped and  asked:  ���������'How long have you hauled water  for the village, my good man?"  "Tin years, sor."  "Ah. how many loads do you take  in a day?"  "From tin to fifteen, sor."  "Ah, yes! Now I have a problem  for you. How much water at this  rate have you nauled in all?"  The driver of the water cart jerked  his thumb backward toward the river  and replied:  ''AU the water yez don't see there  now, sor,"  How Two Tempera-  mentals Quarrel  The famous Russian novelists, Tolstoy and Turgeney, were contemporaries and friends, but on one occasion  they had a serious falling out. This  is the story of their quarreh, as told  in a recent biography:  They had met at a friend's house.  Turgeney spoke enthusiastically of  his daughter's English governess, and  said that she required the child to  mend old, ragged clothes to give to  the poor.  "Do you think that agood thing to  do?" demanded Tolstoy.  'T certainly do," replied Turgeney.  ���������'It makes charity workers recognize  everyday needs."  SYNOPSIS   OF  LAND ACT AMENDMENT  Pre-emption now confined to surveyed  lands only.  Records will be granted covering only  land suitable for agricultural purposes  and which is non-timber land.  Partnership pre-emptions abolished,  but parties of not more than four may  arrange for adjacent pre-emptions,-with  joint residence, but eacli making necessary improvements on respective claims.  Pre-emp'tors must occupy claims for  five years and make improvements to  value of ?10 per acre, including clearing  and cultivation of at least 5 acres, before  receiving  Crown  Grant.  Where pre-emptor in occupation not  less than 3 years, and has made proportionate improvements, he may, because  of ill-health or other cause, be granted  intermediate certificate of improvement  and transfer his claim.  Records without permanent residence  may be issued provided applicant makes  improvements to extent of S300 per annum and records same each year. Failure to make improvements or record  same will operate as forfeiture. Title  cannot be obtained on these claims in  less than 5 years, with improvements of  $10 per acre, including 5 acres cleared  and cultivated, and residence of at  least 2 years.  Pre-emptor holding Crown Grant may  record another pre-emption, if he requires land in conjunction with his  farm, without actual occupation, provided statutory improvements made and  residence maintained on Crown granted  land.

These allotments arc conditional  upon payment of all taxes due the  Crown or to any municipality. Tho  rights of persons to whom the purchaser from the Crown has agreed to  sell are also protected.

C.  i^^ll^iii'ftp^^  When you hear a bicycle owner say his tires are the  original, not the imitation, he means that all other wired-  on bicycle tires took Dunlop Tires for their model,  because Dunlop was first in the field.'

This kind of rough  talk will be heard less here in town if  people troubled with corns will follow  the simple advice of this Cincinnati  authority, who claims that a few drops  of a drug called freezone when applied  to a tender, aching corn stops soreness  at once, and soon the corn dries up  and lifts right out without pain.  He says freezone is an ether compound which dries immediately and  never Inflames or even irritates the  surrounding tissue or skin. A quarter  of an ounce of freezone will cost very  little at any drug store, but is sufficient to remove every hard or soft  corn or callus from one's feet.
