Rumored Preparation (or Big  North Sea Battle  Packing and Pruning School  Dutch rumors that the Gernuuu are  ; preparing lor their long expeotod dash  constitute the biwis lor the belie! that  a mighty battle in the North Sim is  imminent, when coupled with seemingly Corroborative reports: from other sources. Copenhagen reports ex-  rremo' aotivity ut Kiel. Tho'Uornmu  ships are about to venture forth and  risk an engagement. Four Zeppelins  and a Hock ot Taubes have reinforced  the air flotilla at Kiel.    The German  .. dreadnaughts ' ore - Said to be equipped with 17-inch guns. The Zappolini,  it is said, can shoot torpedoes from  the air.  The idea that the (ierman fleet will  soon daBh out of the Kiel Canal, reported equipped with 17-in.h guns  that will blow England's dreadnoughts  . to pieces,'is ridiculed by British navy  experts.   The hazy   atmosphere of the  .North Sea, some stated, would make  it almost impossible to establish an  accurate range for shells fired a   dis-  ~ tance of 20. miles at ships moving at  a speed of more than 20 knots an  hour,   o   Shocking Tradgedy at  Uiiu.iuy.iii Liiiitlllli)  A shocking auair occurred, last week  at UKonaguK i,ancung wnen Jurs. Oiic-  tis, the wue of a wellhnown rancner,  poisoned herseil and her eldest daughter, and nearly succeeded in pOiSontng  three other children. Ihe umortunatu  lady had been ill tor some lime ono  had sutiercU irom mental derungemeni,  though lately apparency recovered  'the story o' the tragic aliair as it  was developed at the inquest revealea  the iaci tliat Mr, Lurtu, who couUm���.....  a dairy larm near the Landuig hau  ,ett the lamily all wen and apparently  happy at auout 7 o'fiUfin when hu  went to the barn where, he woraed until about eleven o'olooK. thawmg out  frozen pipes. Un his return t0 the  house he was horror strioKen to find  Mrs. Curtis, and her daughter l)orotby  aged about eight years dead, .and the  three other children very ill. The eldest surviving girl waB able to give  some account of what had happened  and said that the mother had bathed  all the children before putting them  to bed, and had given them each a  piece of cake spread with butter, which  had made them all tick. She had also  given them hypodermic injections witb  a syringe.  Mrs. Curtis had at one time been a  nun* and possessed a case of hypodermic tablets. it would seem that she  had made a general mixture of morphia, strychnine and bicloride of mercury, whioh she had administered both  hypoderniioally and spread on, the  oake.   *"',  She was held in the highest possible esteem by all who knew her, and  was regarded as a most exemplary  wife and loving. mother. Mr. Curtis,  who is one of the molt highly respected residents of the district, has the  Warmest sympathy of many friends  who share in Home degree the sorrow  of hia terrible affliction.   o   FASTER SUNDAY, APRIL 33  - It might interest some of Our renders to note how exceptionally late  Kastor Sunday comes in the 1916 oul;  endar, viz:���the 23rd of April. Since  the year 1G0O it has fallen on the 23rd  of April in 1508, 1671, 1848 and 1906.  During the same period r\�� only eleven  . occasions has it ever been later, viz:���  on the 21th of April in 1619, 1603  1614, 1698, 1709, 1791, 1869,, and on  the 25th of April in 1646, 1641, 1786  and 1886. Except for 1943 when it  will be the 2Sth of April, it will not  again reach the 23rd until the    year  2oou ';,..  O ''  Two hundred coke ovens at Michel,  that havo been idle for three years,  are now running full blast.  ' The Sferman ��� consul * general,"' Franz  Bppp, was. indicted by a federal grand  jury at Vfashinsrtpn, last week  in connection with' ' the so- oall-  ed Crowley plot to blow up munition plants and interfere with interstate commerce in munitions of war,  acoording ta a report received at tho  department ot justice, ,  Attention is again drawn to the  Packing and Pruning Schools which  are to be held under the auspices ol  the Formers' Institute as soon as arrangements can be completed.  It hardly seems necessary to point  out tho important advantages to bo  gainod from either of these schools.  Fruit growers should realize now, if  never before, that they havo strong  competition to meet and, furthermore,  proper packing is very important in  meeting this Competition. With a production of only 684,800 boxes of apples in 1914, there were just enough  packers; and this year, with a crop  of 787,000 boxes, along with a loss  of a large number of packers through  enlistment, every fruitgrowing district  in British Columbia felt the great  shortago of paokers. .With a much larger crop noxt year, combined with, a  further loss of packers, it appears as  if the wholesale importation of packers from outside points would be necessary, unless Ihe local people respond to the demand.  ���Furthermore, in order for a packer  to put up u perfect pack he must have  good fruit. Prdper pruning plays a  much greater part in the production of  good fruit than is generally supposed.  Besides building a tree which will support a crop without breaking down,  pruning properly done decreases tho  amount of ' thinning neoessary, the  percentage of second grade fruit, the  cost of picking and the cost of packing; while iB increases the color and  quality of the fruit, the percentage of  No. l's, the efficiency of spraying, qIc.  The losses through improper methods  cannot be estimated and can only be  realized by. men who aro in'a position  to visit a large number of. orchards  each year.  As long as fruit is grown in British  Columbia there will be pruning and  packing to be done end without the  maximum amount of co-bperation anl  efficiency among th' growers the best  results cannot be obtained.  In order to complete the number required for the Packing classes, those  intending to tnke them up this winter  are requested to send in their names  this week to the secretary of the Farmers' Instituto. If sufficient -numbers  are obtained it is hoped to arrange  separate classes for men and women.  Pruning classes arc alHo being arranged and will bo held in the spring  if sufficient names are given in to the  secretary at an early date.  The Weekly World says it hears that  Field Marshal Lord Kitihener is likely to tako over command of the British forces in Egypt and I that the Earl  of Derby, the director of recruiting,  will bo tho now secretary of state for  war with u seat in the cabinet.  Reports that Germany has made  offers of separate peace to both Russia  and Japan have beon-confirmedI by  Cour,t Okouma, Premier of Japan,  says an Exchange Telegraph desparch  from Petrograd. The offers wero rejected.  One of tho biggest war risk insurance premiums yet placed in Western  Canada was taken out by tho Alberta  Provincial govcrntnont Monday direct  with Lloyd's, London, and insures the  legislative buildup for the sum oi $2-  000,000 against war risks of any kind.  Tho policy is of �� very clastic character, so far as war risks are concerned.  It covers damages arising* from bomb  outrages, etc., and even from firo  resulting from gnsolinb used by alien  enemies. In addition to this, the  government is .taking Bpecial precautions with regard to the admittance  of visitors.  Sir Robert Bordou introduced in tho  House Tuesday n'ternoon the bill to  extend the life of parliament. He said  that if the opposition opposed the  measure the government would have  to withdraw and decide upon its future 'bourso. Ho said ho was oertain  the overwhelming sentiment of the  people was in favor of the bill. He  felt .positjye of tho ultimate viotory of  the ,; Allies, but,from all the information be had at hand he believed the  war was, as yet, only hnlf-way  through. Ho did not believe the Al  Hes would be prepared to throw their  full strength into the war until . the  middle nf Iho summer. This was the  view ho brouitit. bash from Europe.  Successful Concert in  Methodist Qorck  Selections from Great Oratorio  are Well Rendered  Tho Methodist church was crowded  on Tuesday evening to hear the Methodist and Baptist choirs give a concert, the first half of which was com-  posed of selections from Handel's masterpiece '"Ihe Messiah/' and the second of miscellaneous selections. It was  a difficult proposition to tackle such  nn ambitious oratorio, ibut the choir  had long and carefully practiced the  various selections and the result was  a complete success which reflected  great credit on the careful- training  by Miss Frances Pearson, L.R.A.M.  The members of the choir labored under many disadvantages. The oratorio  is written for eight parts, but these  had perforce to be reduced to four by  reason of the small number of singers.  It is a work that demands considerable skill and a keen perception of the  niceties of expression, as well us time,  but with all this the choir came out  with flying colors and had the audience been permitted, their efforts would  have been rewarded with enthusiastic  encores. The choirs were aided by a  small orchestra which rendered effective servico and added considerably, to  the evening's entertainment. The  principals were Miss F. A. Pearson who  Conducted and rendered the recitatives  'There were Shepherds." "And lo! the  Angel of the Lord," "And the Angel  said unto them," and "And suddenly  there was with the .Angels," and air  1 know that my Redeemed Liveth,"  n her usual artistic style, Miss E.  Magee, whoso contralto voice was  heard to advantage in the recitative  "Then shall the eyes of the bling" 'ttnd  air "He shall feed His flock like a  shepherd/' Miss Phyllis Pitt, who  followed with the ftir "Come unto  Him," which was nicely sung, and Mr,  Fred Pedlar. The last mentioned suffered under the disadvantage of a severe cold and waB not up to the mark  in his difficult pieces "Comfort Ye,"  and "Every Valley." Nevertheless he  came through the ordeal with considerable credit.  A glance at the program will show  that the choral selections had been  made with care, and the success in  rendering them leads one to hope that  tho choirs of all the churches will combine one of these days to give the  public the whole of "The Messiah" a8  thero is no doubt that there ib enough  talent in Kelowna to tackle with a  fair amount of success this grand oratorio.  The second part of the program comprised miscellaneous selections. Mr.  Pedlar was recalled for his ttnor  solo "I hear you oa-ling me" and a  duet by MiBs Pejarson and Mr. Pedlar entitled "Love is mennt to make  us glad," was likewise well received.  MrB. W, Greensted, Miss A. Hogarth  and Mr. Drury Pryce delighted all by  the first movement of Bach's Concerto in "D" minor, for two violins  and piano, and as an encore gave  the second and third movement. Miss  E. .Jones played Schumann's "Why"  and "Whims" on the piano 'while Miss  Miss K. Magee and Miss Pearson sang  "Angus Macdonald" and "Fairies from  the moon," respectively.  Tho following took part:  Sopranos.*��� Mrs. W. Clement, Mrs. P.  Harding, Mrs. H. 0. Jenkins, Mrs. H.  McClure, Miss H. Ellis, Miss 1). Evans,  Miss E. Haug, Miss A. Hunter, Miss  R. Hunter, Miss F.

During the interval Mayor Jones  told of the needs of the Canadian Patriotic Fund in aid of which the Oon-  cert wftfl held and he urged a more  generous response to the appeals for  assistance. At the close of the concert the members of the choir and orchestra were invited to Mayor Jones'  homo where the rest of the evening  was spent in a "ocinl w^y.  Lake Route Will  Be Kept Open  Capt. Gore Thinks Boat Will  Continue to Reach Kelowna  Last Monday Capt. Gore, superintendent of the C.P.R., lako ind iiver  service of the province paid tt visit to  Kelowna, to look into the present  strenuous conditions of navigation. A  committee of three, consisting of Mayor -tones and Messrs, H. F. Roes and  W. Haug, representing the city council  the Board of Trade and the Merchants  Association waited ' upon Capt. Gore  and Capt. Robinson (of tho S.S. Sioa-  mous) in the evening to enquire into  the possibilities of a discontinuance o"  the boat service, owing to the ice on  the lake, and t0 urge that every effort  be used to keep open the communication with Okanagan Landing.  Capt. Gore, while pointing out tht>  tremendous difficulty which those in  charge of the service were encountering  said the company fully realized the  importance to Kelowna of keeping the  boats running, and were prepared to  do everything they possibly could to  keep the track open'- So far they had  been able to do this and he believed  that unless anything unforeseen occurred they would be able t0 continue  the Bervice, an announcement which  was received with considerable salis-  ftletiou by the delegation present.  Capt. Gore said that on the Okanagan Lake they were not as fully prepared to meet mich conditions as in  other places where they were a regular annual occurrence. The continued  cold weather had caught them a little  unawares, and they had labored under  many disadvantages. Amongst other  things two of their boats had been  disabled since the co'd weather came.  He hoped the public would endeavor  to meet them a little in the matter  and put up with a few little inconveniences, as they could be assured they  would get the best, service possible under the (Jltcumatances. '   -  Capt. Gore also mentioned that an  effort was to be mado this week to  break a way through to the car slip  and release the barge in order that  loaded cars of freight might be  brought down. This would improve  matters considerably a" the bringing  down of loose freight on the fiicambus  as thev had been compelled to do during the last fow days-waB. both slow  and costly.  Second Barracks Opened  . for Overseas Force  The Kelowna overseas contingent,  which, by the way is "C" Company  of the 172nd, n0w numbers 115 members. Lieut. Allen is slated for the  position of company commander, with  a consequent elevation in rank. Dr.  0. W. Dickson, who has lately been  gazeteed Lieutenant will also be . Attached to the company.  To accommodate the increasing numbers a second barracks has been provided in thr, large house on Klli. ntroet  (formerly Willits drug store), and  some eightocn men are now quartered  there.  Tho boyB are gradually getting into  better shape after the recent epidemic  of grippe, nnd aro milking rapid  strides in drill.  Next week it is proposed to . send  up a picked team of hookey playws,  t0 Armstrong nnd Vernon and judging  from the quality of their ploy it is  expected thev will have no difficulty  in dealing tilings up wherever     they  play.  NEW WORLDS RECORD FOR SKI  JUMPING  Ncls Nelson has smashed oil world's  records on the Revelstoke Ski Club hill  by jumping 188 feet. The feat was  accomplished on Tuesday of last week.  The next best rocord to this is 1T7 feet  made in Switzerland. Mr. Nelson alter making the new record expressed  the belief that ho could still further  break his record on the Revelstoke  hill and would make such effort at the  tournament held there Tuesday and  Wednesday, February 8th and 9th. The  reports of this tournament are not yet  to hand but are awaited with much  anxiety b.. local sportsmen.  Farmers' Banquet is Fixed  For February 24th  A joint committee appointed from  the Farmers' Institute and the Women's Institute met Monday afternoon  to make arrangements for the proposed "Farmers' Banquet" which had  been under discussion for some time.  It is felt that such a social get-  together event would have a most  beneficial effect in promoting a better  understanding amongst the farmers of  the district, and in developing a better spirit of cooperation for the general good.  It waH decided that the banquet  should take place Thursday, the Mth  of this month at 7 o'clock in the  evening. A general appeal is to be  made to all farmers to assist in the  matter of eatables, and past experience has shown that such an appeal  is likely to meet with a very hearty  response. To meet the expense of a  hall and'of the speakers who will possibly be brought in from a distance a  small charge is to be made.  So far, of course, no actual program  has been arranged, but invitations are  being sent to several prominent authorities on dairying and agriculture  generally, and in addition a good musical program will be provided.  People who are grumbling here in  Kelowna about the heavy Enowfall can  possibly take some comfort from the  fact that we are still some distance  behind Victoria which is practically  snow-bound under a fall' ranging up  to ten feet in places. Traffic has been  stopped in all directions, nnd the suburban residents ��� are having to construct a series of communication  trenches in order to get out of iheir  homes. There are, of course, no deliveries of bread, meat, milk, or coal,  and at evening may be witnessed the  spectacle of a long line of men mushing along, on their shoulders bags of  provisions, ������ or dragging small sleds.  Practically all the women who have  to make their way about in the snow  are wearing men's clothing. The fuel  and provision problem in the suburban districts is becoming very acute,  many residents tearing down their  fences and chopping up their steps to  make a fire.  Manitoba's Dairy Industry  According to a bulletin just issued  by the department of agrioulture of  Manitoba the dairy industry had a  very 'successful season in the year ^ of  1915. There was an increase ti over  1,000,000 pounds, of creamery butter  production over the previous year,  about 260,000 pounds inorease in dairy  ibutter 'and over 25,000 pounds increase  in the output of cheese. The increase  in the total value of milk and milk  products was over $427,000.  The production of dairy butter for  the province during the year was 4,-  150,444 pounds, which brought an average price of 23 cents per pound. Of  creamery butter 5,839,667 pounds were  produced which commanded an average price of 29 cents per pound. The  production of cheese was 726,725  pounds and the average price 15 cents  per pound. The total value of these.]  three products is given as $2,760,-  697.94. In addition to this is a milk  production valued at $926,669. and  cream valued at $1.58,826.88. The average price of milk is quoted as 2.1c.  per pound, and the average price of  sweet oream 32 cents por pound butter  fat.  Tho number ot cattle in the province  is quoted at 631,005, which is an increase of over 130,000 0ver the previous year. There had been little  change in the number of horses Hnd  sheep and a slight falling off of pigs.  Parliament Buildings  Destroyed by fire  Seven Dead and Many Injured  in Disastrous Blaze ��� Hon.  M.Burrell Badly Burned  The sensation of the week has been  the destruction by fire of the greater  part of the Canadian parliament buildings at Ottawa with a loss of life of  seven people and injury of severar others, including the Hon. Martin Bur-  rell, Minister of Agriculture and member for this district. The fire is said  to have been caused by incendiary  agents of the enemy, but about this  point there is apparently some considerable difference of opinion. A commission has been appointed to investigate  the origm of the fire and no doubt  their report will serve to throw light  upon what is more or less of a mystery. Suffice it to say that the fire  spread with almost unbelievable rapidity, and many of those in the building  found their means of sxit suddenly cut  off, and thrilling stories are told of  escapes from windows or any means  which presented itself.  Mr. Frank Glasb, member for East  Middlesex, was according to his statement, the first to see the beginning of  the fire. He noticed smoke coming  from a pile of newspapers in the reading room and called a policem-tn to  extinguish it. When the policeman  arrived the flames were beginning to  spread and it is also asserted that the  effect .of the chemical extinguisher Mas  to make the fire blaze more fiercely,  giving rise to the belief that the extinguishers had been tampered with,  and an inflamable liquid substituted  for the usual chemical.  Parliament wras in session at the  time and when in a few seconds the  fire had begun to spread to every part  of the build'ng, the a'ann waB tf��V��n  in the chamber. The House was at  once adjourned and a move made for  the doors. Most of the members had  no time evin to get their hats and  overcoats as the corridors were .soon  a mass of roaring flames.  Many of those occupied in other  parts of the building were trapped  and some spectacular rescues were  made by the firemen.  The dead are Madame Morin and  Madame Henri Bray of Quebec, visitors to Madame Sevipny, the speaker  whose apartments are in the House;  Alphonse Dejardines, a plumber; and  his nephew of the same name,, a policeman; B. B. Law, M.P., for Yarmouth; J. B. R. Leplanto, assistant  clerk of tho House and Robert Fanning, a waiter.  No member of the House of Commons had so narrow an escape as  Hon. Martin Burrell, minister of agriculture. Mr. Burrell was \working in  his office, off tho reading room, with  William Ide, his secretary, when the  alarm was given- The two rushed to  the d0or, but a burst of flame met  them. They were cut off and had to  make a fresh dash through the fire  and smoke to the Senate side of ths  building to escape. Both were severely burned about the face, Mr. Burrell  particularly was badly singed about  both cheeks.  The Canadian Parliament build'ngs  cost $2,500,000, but they were binlt  when building was cheap- There is  no insurance, and the structure can  not be replaced for much lees than  five million dollars, allowing for the  need of more capacious quarters.  In the meantime parliament is meeting in temporary premises in the Victoria National Museum.  Fernie is offering a little municipal  loan ot $4,634 to citizens at $) per  cent. The debentures are in denominations of $100.  Don't forget that next Thursday  evening is the last of the popular "At  Homes" given by the Girl's Bed Cross.  Dancing, cards ftnd refreshments.  A despatch from Saloniki says the  total number of victims in the Zeppelin raid over Sa'oniki was oigb/.een  persons killed and thirty-seven wounded. The material damage is estimated at nearly 5,000,000 francs,  Trail has to resort to conscription  to fill four vacancies in the town coun  cil this year.  Main estimates tabled in the Commons by Sir Thomas White Monday  total $189,054,118, as compared with  $196,853,517 for the previous year, a  reduction of nearly eight mi,lions.  There are no items for public works  and undertakings, except for repairs,  and no provision is made for promotions in the civil service.  The Ford Motor Car Company has  decided to establish an assembling  plant at Calgary and has bought a  site in that city for that purpose. It  will proceed in the eariv Bprng to put  up a large building, which will be so  designed as to permit additional stor-  eyB being added as needed, A considerable staff will be employed from  the first, and it is expected the .business will grow to very large proportions.

Another matter which requires moro careful atten-  j tion is the eradication of scab which  I is becoming so bad in the valley that  our markets will become considerably  | mrtailed if the cUseaSg is not checked.

President Reports  on Work of the  Farmers' Institute  The following report of the work  of the Kelowna Farmers' Institute for  the past year has been handed to us  by the president, Mr. L. E. Taylor, for  publication:  I am pleased, h�� says, to be a^le t0  report that the Institute has made  ' very good progress during the past  year- The membership has incr.-ased  from 88 to 213 which is very gratify:  ing. A groat deal of work was done  by the directors in connection with  the formation of a creamery and after  several public meetings had been held  a company was f'nally launched in  Juno and a well equipped creamery  started. This has proved a success  from the start ;nnd is proving a groat  boon to the fanners of th- surround*  ing district. Following on the formation of the creamery un impetus  was given to the'building of sil0s,  about thirteen having been built during the summer and only the want of  produce to fill them prevented Wary  other farmers from building. This  shows a decided step forward and is a  noteworthy one in the development of  agriculture in the valley.  Another progressive step was tihfl  holding of two weeks short course in  Agriculture nnd Horticulture which  was attended by over 30 farmers.'ibis  Was particularly gratifying bo'h to  ourselves ftnd to the department oj '<'��'  rioulture as it was the first of such  courses held in the province nnd our  tfmnks are particularly due to the  Hon. Price Ellison, then minister of  agriculture, to whom the project was  first mooted and who did everything  in his power to make it a success.  Special mention should be made of the  lantern lecture given one evening by  Prof. Klinck, on plant breeding to a  crowded audience which demonstrated  to the surprise of most farmers the  enormous amount of work and patient  selection carried out at our cxperimeri-  cal fanns and College institution^, in  order to raise the very best seed nni  plants for the benefit of farmers  throughout the Dominion. Our thanks  are specially due to Prof. Klinck lor  staying with us for several days beyond his allottfd time in order to give  the farmers the benefit of his unrivalled experience in this work. The outcome has been to stimulate the interest of farmers in the production of  better seed and better crops by which  means only agriculture in this valley  Can keep abreast of the times. In this  connection it can also be mentioned  that tho uovernment purchased large  quantities of pedigree seed which was  sold to tho farmers at cost price and  enabled those who took advantage of  the offer to raise greatly improved  yields both in crops and soed for future use. This scheme is being continued this year but the government  have pointed out that it may be the  last year they will be able to do so  and that they now look to the farmers to carry on the work and produce  rli-j best seed for themselves. I would  like to specially draw the attention of  farmers to the necessity of raising better seed potatoes and carefully selecting the seed from the hills in the field  and propagating from this selected  sezd. Most of the potatoes raised  here are "run out" and the yield is  falling rapidly every year, this ean be  overcome by the methods I have outlined. It is perhaps worth m<n'i<nn.r  that experiments conducted at Guelph  and elsewhere over a great number of  years has shown that the bett ronlts  have been obtained by using immature  potatoes for seed, tha is to say potatoes planted late in the ffe&BOn and  not allowed    to ripen arid tfeU token  prizes  these competitions by the government  and augmented by the Institute.  The district has benefited considerably by the importation of two pure  bred Holstein bulls and one Berkshire  boar by tho Dominion, government, the  stock being placed at tho disposal of  organized associations free of charge  tho association paying for their keep.  This scheme should produce a marked  improvement in the stock in the near  future.  Important  legislation was passed at  the last session of parliament in con  nee tion with the formation of a Land  Dank, the Water Act, Brands Act and  Noxious Weeds Act.     Tho Land Wank  has  not yet    received  the assent     of  parliament and it is to be hoped that  in tho interests of the farming    community that an opportunity will     be  given in parliament  for a free discus  sion before it is placed on tho statute  books and that it should bo kept out-  sido tho range of parly politics. Several additions were made to the list   of  noxious weeds, th�� most important of  which is tho Russian Thistle, which un  fottunatety is being allowed to got    i  firm foot hold throughout this valley  Having been introduced in alfalfa seed  two    years ago it is now to bo found  found almost everywhere.    Alfalfa has  been    recently seeded and unless     tho  government    and farmers take immediate stops to eradicate it it will    become a very serious menace to agriculture here.     The nomous weed act     is  unfortunately     practically 'a dead let'  ter in this district.    Last year    your  directors urged the government to appoint a weed inspector for the district  a'one but no satisfaction could be obtained.    Eventually an inspector   was  appointed    at    Armstrong to superintend the whole Okanagan Valley    ob-  v iously  an  impossible  task  and quite  useless    to   us    locally.    Under    tho  amended    act responsibility for weeds  growing on roads in the country does  not rest with the farmer but with the  government  and although the government have been notified of the condition of the weeds on the roads in this  district they have taken no steps    to  eradicate them.  The whole position is  very    unsatisfactory    and the govern  ment    should be urged to carry     out  tho    provisions of the act themselves  and to see that tho farmers do    thoir  share.  Early in the spring a public meeting  was held to forward the "greater production" movement when a vefy able  address was given by Dr. Wcstbrook.  There is no d0ubt that this movement  stimulated the elforts of farmers to  produce larger crops although as it  afterwards proved the production of  vegetables wus greatly in excess of  tho market requirements and the formers locally were heavy losers. In the  case of grain the result was more satisfactory, there was a very lurgo in  creased acreage and enough was produced to supply local demands up till  the end of the year and very little  outside grain had to be imported.  This is quite as it should be and there  is no reason why grain should hove  to be imported into this valley sco-  ing the yield that can bo obtained  hore.  To briefly review the markets--the  vegetable market was in n deplorable  condition throughout the season, especially for onions and potatoes whioh  arc produced here in large quantities.  The establishment of a vegetable evnp  orator possibly saved the situation for  tho time but tho prices offered were  so low as to hardly make the growing  of vegetables for this purpose profitable. It would seem that the information placed at the disposal of the  fanners regarding the future of th*  onion and potato markets was badly  at fault as both these commodities  have ad.'an'ied at least 100 per cent,  within a couple of months in spite  of a scare report sent out by the government to the effect that there was  an enormous overproduction of potatoes in B.C., on the strength of which  many farmers sold their produce for  almost nothing.  There is a great laok here of reliable market information, the farmers  being dependent almost entirely on the  various shipping organization^ and  stray government reports often of th,1  ''senre" type, an unsatisfactory condition The weekly reports of the Market Commis'sioner furnish more or less  NO  ALUMIUL  READ  TMI  LABEL  BAKING POWOERf  an idea of the present market condition* but something more than this is  required to enable farmers to form ian  idea of the future possibilities of the  markets.  Owing to the energy of a few local  business men the cannery was again  put in operation with satisfactory results to all concerned and without  which the town and district would  have been heavy losers.  A fruit evaporator was also established although rather too late in the  season to prove its worth, but there  is no doubt in a normal year when  windfalls and culls are not saleable  this now outlet will prove of great  value.  The fruit market has been the bright  est spot, contrary to early expectations there has been a good demand  for all classes of fruit at remunerative  prices, especially for export. Fruit  shipped by the Kelowna Growers Exchange brought a very good price on  the Johannesburg market and Stirling  k Pitcairn shipped five cars of fruit  to the Argentine where it is hoped to  establish a large market for our fruit  in the future.  The Pi. C. Fruit Growers Association  have recently issued a very pessimistic  report regarding the future of the apple industry which I do not think is  fully shared either by growers or shippers here. The report is to be put  before the Dominion government in  order to make o'lt a case for an increase in the present tariff on imported fruit. It is a very debateable question whether this would solve th) pre  sent difficulty of unfair competition  winch would seem to bo mora easily  mot by enforcement of the flumping  act and insistence on all imported  fruit being graded and marked according to our standards. These matters  will be fully discussed at the forthcoming meeting of the 11. C. Fruitgrowers Association and tho views of  the local fruitgrowers should be expressed at that meeting by their representatives present aw it. is a very  important   matter.  The Institute directors endeavored at  the beginning of the year to enlarge  its scope by renting a room for permanent quarters where farmers could  meet when in town and obtain information anil bulletins. Advantage was  also taken of the government travelling library which was used by 60 of  the members, books having been taken  out 200 times. The directors consider  that the use made of thj room has  warranted the expenditure and they  are endeavoring to arrange a scheme  whereby the Institute should have its  permanent quarters at the Board of  Trade room with a secretary in attendance on so many afternoons a  week lo give information and to  hand out bulletins and library books.  The success of such a scheme will depend on the support which the Institute receives during tho coming year  and I earnestly appeal to every termor in the district to become a member  und show a lively intorest in the  work. Tho benefits to be received are  out of all proportions to tho moderate  membership fee of 50 cents per annum  and it is only by having tt large membership and a consequent large government grant which depends on tho  membership numlwrs, that a progressive policy can be carried on. Tho  Institute should and can be of groat  value to even- farmer and I should  like to MOe the membership outdistance  that of any institute in the province  nnd win the government prize offered  The Hudson Bay Railway  and Trade Route  Among tho new railway construction  which iB to go on uninterruptedly during the present year is;the line being  built by the Dominion government to  Hudson Bay, Tho Hon. Frank Cochrane, minister of railways recently  stated that it was hoped the line  would be completed by next winter.  As this long-talked-of project comes  nearer realization, it is natural to  find a revival of the discussions as to  its usefulness.  An Ottawa exchange has been giv  publicity to an article by Mr. E. J.  Tighe, who spent the scaBon of 1914-  1915 at Port Nelson,' and is extremely  pessimistic as to tho value of the  Hudson Bay route. He admits, how-  over that navigation to and from the  Bay ports will bo possible for from  two or three months. His.fears that  marine insurance rates will be prohibitive howover, must not be taken too  seriously as the Dominion government  is installing a system of buoys, beacons, Marconi and other signalling  stations hitherto lacking.  The outstanding favorable factor is  that when completed it will be possible, during a certain period, to ship  there grain from the prairie provinces,  At present, even when navigation on  the Great Croat Lakes from Port Arthur and Fort William to Montreal is  open, it means transhipment from the  railway oats to the lake steamers and  another transhipment at .'he cousin  port At the Hudson Bay railway terminals the steamers will be eblo to  come alongside the elevators or tho  railway cars, and, with the exception  of the railway distance from the harvest fields in the areas not far distant  the transit to European ports will bo  an all-sea transit with but one transhipment.

Tn closing I should liko to say that  I think tho Institute has mado great  progress during the past year nnd shat  the farmers of tho district are showing  a more progressive attitude towards  agriculture. We have come through a  very trying year successfully and we  can look forward with more confidence  to tho year just begun.  LIONEL E.

Millions ef Acres of Good  Agricultural Land Idle  Clay Soils Should Not Be  Plowed Wet  ��� For ��� fifteen years before the war  came in li>14 to disorganize the civilized world Canada ' had been going  through ah era of prosperity and development which had been equalled only once and never^surpassed in the his-'  t'ory of the settlement of new coun.  tries. In the ten or (fifteen years immediately preceding the construction  of the Canadian Pacific Railway. the  middle west and the Pacific ..slope in  the United States filled up ami developed with hitherto unheard of rapidity. That record, up to then unequalled was seriously challenged by this  country a quarter of a century later.  For years We -saw the packetl liners  swinging itfto their docks in an unending lino and great, trains leaving by  the scores and hundreds carrying new  Canadians to new Canadian Homes.  To control, and direct this mighty  stream we wero forced to create ftnd  set up much machinery. How well it  did its work the tons of thousands of  acres of rich wheat lands of western  Canada, only yesterday virgin prairie,  tho well built, prosperous towns in  what were only a decade ago desert  places, bear ample witness.  Then came the gwat upheaval, the  dawn of chaos ovei' a horror stricken  world, and the .damming up for the  time being, of the stream of new* life  and new blood ,trom across the ocean  to our land.  Those year* of rapid settlement were  marvellous^ but after1 all, how really  small a piu't of our country is even  yet under tribirtf. to the basic industry  of Canada, agriculture. Figures are^  ofton dull enough, but in this Case  they are gTapliic. Those given here  are\ necessarily only approximate and  given in round numbers, but they are  thy latest- available, based on the last  cen-uis and form a reliable source says  an exchange. In the province     of  Quebec it is estimated there are 40,-  000,000 acres of land suitable for )&g-  ricultur'e. After ft century and (l half  only 16,000,000 a'-res of it are occupied and pnly ony-hulf of this is under  cultivation, or one-fifth of the total.  The Maritime provinces have 20,000,-  000 acres suitable for agricultural and  11,000,000 acres of it is under cultivation. Ontario has $5,000,000 acres of  agricultural land, has 23,000,000 of it  occupied and 1J,000,000 acres of it cultivated. Manitoba has 40,000,000 acres of far,m land aud raises crops on a  .quarter of it, Saskatchewan has 68,-  000,000 acres <>f hind fpr farming, her  settlers have taken up 30,000,000, and  have 14,000,000 acre*; under cultivation. Alberta with the biggest agricultural area in Canada, 82,000,000  acres has assigned only 20,000,000 acres, and of this only 4,000,000 is under cultivation. Last of all Britinri  Columbia, with 25,000,000 acres of  farm and fruit land has 3,000,000 acres occupied und^ne:third of this actually under cultivation.  To recapitulate them, the Maritime  provinces are cultivating only three-  twentieths of their available land,  Quebec one-fifth, Ontario a little over  a third, Manitoba one-quoi'i���-".', Sa*  katchewan a trifle over a fifth, .\iuer-  ta less than one-twentieth, nub Bntjsh  Columbia one-twenty-fifth. We hove  got, all told, 335,000,000 acres of land  suitable for agriculture in Canada,  and we. havo under cultivation only  54,000,000 acres,'or, roughly, one-sixth  of it. Is there anyone who will dare  to estimate the wealth this hind will  produce, the population it will support when it is all taken up, all yielding the reward it is capable of yielding for labor bestowed?  For the moment immigration from  across the ocean is almost at a standstill, and rightly so. Canada would  not at this time draw ono man from  the firing line to increase her material prosperity. These men, like our  own boys, who have foregathered with  them on the fields of Flanders or elsewhere, wherever the world war is being  waged, aro fighting our battles for us,  spending themselves for the^ salvation  nnd welfare of Canada jUBt as the  Indihn fighters and tho pioneers of old  spent themselves. They aro making  straight the paths toward our future,  and it is tho part of thoso of us who  cannot join them so to provide that  pai't of tho future which lies within  our power,to regulnto shnll bo worthy  of their sublime sacrifice, when they  come to us in their thousands, as  come they will when tho war is over.  VTc 'have tho land ftnd the infinite  possibilities that arise from it, But  let us not be content with a self satisfied contemplation of mere possibilities. Untilled acres and undevol0pod  rosouroos profit nobody. Wo have had  a machir i for the direction of immigration flowing into this country, but  as it stands, it will be of little enough  use to us when the crisis comes. Wo  will need a f&r higger and far moro  efficient equipment than we have ever  had if we are to handle the flood of  new population that wo can direct to  our shores after the war ib over. Tt  can be made to break all records nnd  put a'l precedents to the blush. There  will be no use In our,attempting    to  The proper time to plow land is  when it is just moist enough to break  up mellow, neither wet enough to  leave a Blick surface where rubbed by  the inoldboard nor dry enough to  break up large clods; or, as the  southern farmer putB it, when the  soil has a good season in it.  If continued rain follows wet plowing, little harm follows; but hot, dry  winds would soon leave a maSB of unmanageable clods. In spring fcnd midsummer* plowing, particularly, it is  of the utmost importance to run the  harrow immediately after the plow.  This prevents, the formation of olods.  Sandy soils are usually not injured  by handling when wet, but the case is  different with clay soils. A fair quality of brick can be made from any  hoavy clny soil by working it thoroughly when wet and then drying it  in the sun. The effect produced by  working clay soils wet is known as  puddling. Irrigation dit'ehes in the  west aro puddled by first flooding  them to make them muddy and then  driving bands of sheep along in this  mud. This makes the bottom impervious to water and prevents loss  from leakage.  U a clay soil is plowed or even harrowed when too wet it is more or less  puddled. In this condition it becomes  clodtdy and impervious to air nnd  water.. Old roadways that have been  thoroughly puddled from traffic in al'  kind-; of weather may be distinguished  in fields many years after they have  betn plowed up and put into cultivation,  Ridge Up the Land  How the winter's frosts can mellow  up tho soil! Old, hard clay fields, if  plowed up late in the fall, left in  ridges just as a field of turnips or of  corn, will be frozen through, and tho  roots and all vegetable humus will be  frozen. Alternate freezing and thawing will break down their fibrous integuments, and with the final thawing out of spring the warm sun can  penetrate in turn. Decomposition will  set free the elements in the vegetable  matter. It will combine with the elements of the soil. Chemical activity  will increase- and the stores of plant  food in both the soil and the vegetable matter will be set free. How  too young plants will feed upon . it  and gnowl  It pays to ridge up the land in the  late fall- Especially after a wet season such as the one just past, ita benefits to heavy land will be big. Old  sods will work down in the spring  time into nice, mellow seed bods, and  (he harmful inhabitants will have  been exposed to the cold and froBt  and will be dead. It will pay well in  many ways to ridge up the fields before the close of winter.  PREVENT  HKNS FROM  ING  SCRATCH-  Mixed Farming Pays Best  When a livestock farmer grows clover, alfalfa and grain, he draws very  heavily upon the supplies of fertility  in the land- This fertility ho carries  to the bam, places in the hay mow,  in the silo, or in the feed bin, The  cattle consume it, and the waste mat  ter from their bodies goes-baok to the  soil. . - j  This largely, though not quite entirely makes up for the fertility that  has been taken away. So nearly perfect is this process of return of fertility that in the case of the .production  of butter it takes about $900 worth of  butter to remove .50 centB' worth of  fertility from the soil.  It is for this roaso,. that stock farming is the best kind of farming to follow. The fanner requires his land tp  produce grain and sells that grain on  the market is making the cheap raw  material which other men manufacture  into high-priced articles of general use,  such as flour, linseed oil, beef, butter  and pork and following the usual  course of economic laws, he gets paid  for his labor and gives away the material out of which his product was  made.  "The end of that kind of farming,"  says the Farm, Stock and Home, "is  ultimate failure and can be nothing  else, while on the other hand the man  who manufactures something that lives  on the land, or returns to it the highest possible degree of the fertility taken aw��v by the crop, is manufacturing  a finished product."  And again in Harmony with the  same economic laws that go to make  Poor the seller of raw products, he  gets returns not only on his labor but  uprn the labor of the stock which he  employs to transform the raw material into the finished product and in  addition to this he received pay for  the raw material itself.  This then makes the difference between the grain farmer and the stock  farmer.

The ingenuity of the inventor balks  at nothing. Here for instance, is a  new patented article that may not  appeal to oity folks,, but iu rural communities, where people are still trying  t0 solve the problems of combining  hens with gardening without harm to  either, it may have a Btronger appeal.  The article in ipiestion looks like a  little steel bar, to on? end of whioh  is fastened a tin bnnd. This band can  be clamped around th0 hen's leg, lcav  ing the steel bar about four inches  long* hanging louse behind. It is  guaranteed to protect the garden from  the hen.  The hen goes into the garden, seos  an 'attractive looking worm hole and  decides to dig for the worm. Out goos  her foot, but the pendant steel bar  digs into the earth. Th,; hen kicks  her leg back for the scratch and to  her surprise propels herself forward  boyond the worm hole. Indignantly  she tries again, only to find all her  energy going into some unseen power  that propels her across the garden and  finally out of it.

During the present generation, by her success in erstwhile solely masculine activities, she has been winning her way against ancient prejudices until to-day she  is given respectful consideration for positions of the greatest responsibility.

We are told thnt the supply of rood  in Gormany is abundant, yet the chancellor under authority given him has  just lilted the price at which potatoes  may be sold by thc producer and by  the miirkiitmnn. There is enough to  spare of everything, yet the prices of  the commonest commodivios are under  government control. Nobody goes  hungry, but tho poople have been  wamer] that they must not carry thoir  clamor for butter und table supplies  to the point of breaking the grocer's  windows, and the severe penalties imposed upon, rioters have been officially  culled to their attention. The last issue of tho imperial bonds aro paid for  in papoc> since the pcoplo long ago  surrendered practically all tho gold in  their possession to the imperial bank.  By this process of bond iBsuo the government oan be kept in paper funds  indefinitely, but in spite of prioe regulations tho discount upon the pa])er  currency will increase. ; One measure  of tho discount wus the very disquieting increase in prices of commodities.  Revelstoke is the latest centre to  talk creamery.  Where Italians are fighting Austrians  at fr0ra 7,000 to 10,000 feet above sea  level, ordinary gun sights are uboIoss,  because fn the rarefied air of such altitudes shells and bullets travel much  further than at sea level, whore sighBS  are usually tested. Italian mountain  guns therefore have specially eompen-  .sated .sightB, for war has never been  waged so far up in the sir before.

Norman, R.N.; was  taken from "The Scout:"  It is astonishing how thc mere fact  of being brought under a little discipline braces up the whole being of a  boy. -  There are many true stories that  illustrate the value of discipline, but  nore more striking than that of the  loss of H.M.s'. "Birkenhead." Well do  I remember the event, which took plaoe  shortly after I entered the niavy.  The "Birkenhead'' was a troop-sliip  of the very old fashioned paddle-wheel  type, and very small by comparison  with our modern marine monsters, being only 556 horse power. Nevertheless she had on board no fewer than  638 persons, including 14 officers and  458 soldiers. She was proceeding from  Queenstown to the Cape, and when  off Simon's Bay, South Africa, she  struck upon a pointed pinnacle rook  with such force that she instantly became a helpless, water-logged wreck.  Half an hour nfterwards she sank. But  during that half 'hour there was enaot-  ed on board, a sccae of the most perfect discipline and stately heroism.  The soldiers instantly obeyed the roll  of the drum, and' "fell in" along the  deck shoulder to shoulder as on parade. Their commanding officer, Uol.  Seton, explained to them that there  were only boats enough to save the  women and children, and urged them  te behave like men und stand firm.  And they did so. The ship was  sinking beneuth their feet. They could  both sec nnd feel it. But there waB no  panic, no wavering even- Calmly they  stood facing death, officers and men,  watching the sharks that were waiting for them. So they wont down at  their posts, from Colonel to 'drummer  boy.  ThiB story shows what discipline can  do. It eon conquer even the fear of  death, triumph over the instinct of  self-preservation���tho strongest perhaps of all instincts implanted in man.  Loam to disoiplino not only your  habits, not only your words, but even  your thoughts.  s .  A GRUES0MI5 STORY  Teaoher:���Who oanj made a sentence  with tho word gruesome?  Willie.���I oan sir. The man gruesome  whiakers. "Sphinx."  SUPKRSTITION IN GERMAN ARMY  The soldiers of the Kaiser are very  supentitious, from the men in the  ranks up to tho C'own Prince. Wil-  helm's oldest son carries a horseshoe  with him on all his motor trips, and  spends much of tho day in his motor-  oar. The horseshoe is attached to one  of the doors of tho car, and when being photographed in his oar the  Prince always insists on tho photographer taking tho side with the horseshoe.  Tho soldiers of \Yurteraborg pin ih.iir  faith upon (l little hag containing the  dry pollen of flowers, whioh, they believe, has tho power of wjarding oft tit*  bullets.  The SaxonB sew into tho lining of  their waistcoats tho wings of h bat,  and think thomsslvos to be invincible.  The Havnrians hold on tenaciously  to a still moro bizarre custom, Before  going into battlo each soldier finds  a birch tree, cuts his skin, and lets a  few drops of blood fall upon the tree.  This ceremony, thoy assert assures recovery, no matter what the nature of  the wound,"when the loaves begin to  grow again.  General Hughes is issuing orders  through division commanders, that  men in units throughout the country  may obtain leave of absence from  their military duties in the spring'f0r  a sufficient length of time to enable  them to plant need for crops in every  province in Canada. In doing this  Gen. Hughes is following thefi precedent set last autumn, when the soldiers,ia training were allowed to help  in tho harvwt.  Random Remarks  (Bytl.e"Chier)  "A duel's among ye takin' notes,  And feth he'll print them."  "ShJEill a woman's virtues move  Me to perish for her love?  Or her well deservings, known,  Make me quite forgot my own?  Bo sho with that goodness blest  Which may gain her name of best.  If she bo not so for me  \Vhat care I how good she bo?"  ���Geo. Mitber.  When a man calls a woman "Dearest" "Precious" "Beautiful Doll"  "Dearest Baby," etc., you wouldi imagine ho had insulted her as much as  he could do. The plaintiff in a recent "breach" ease evidently did; not  think so, as she is claiming $50,000  because he didn't follow up this .drivel  by marrying her. 1 would consider  this to bo adding injury to insult, but  then 1 am not a woman and I do not  protend to understand women.  Why is it when the proposer of a  toast to "The Ladies" gets on his feet  there should appear a grin.on the  faces all around. Why? The proposer knows his cue, and generally, acting as he is expected to do proceeds  to be as funny as possible, becomes  extravagantly eulogistic of his subject and generally succeeds in drawing  the applause and merriment of his  audience. It is not usually the fault  of the proposer that the toast is not  proposed and honored with the grace  and dignity that tho subject demands.  He acts as he knows he is expected to  do, and my sympathy is with him  every time, but why should he be expected so to act? is the question and  echo answers, "I don't know."  * ���  i  One would think in these progressive  days of women voters, women smokers, women doctors, aviatorB, orators,  ayo and fighters even, not to speak of  the inestimable services of women on  the battle fields of Europe, that they  would protest against such treatment.  In these days when thoy have proved  themselves the equal of men in many  ways, emulating sometimes their vices  as well as their virtues, it is a matter  for wonderment that men should continue to maintain towards women an  attitude of good natured indulgence.  * ��  Of course these remarks are offered  in a general way c^ly- When wo come  to particular relations, say those existing between husbands and wives for  instance,' .well or that is to say that   er ��� that . 1 am  afraid 1 am  getting on thin ice and will discreetly  get off before anything happens. A  married man connot afford to     takt  risks.  ��� '.       *  Every woman knows that the cause  of matrimony in harmony, domestic infelicity, family scrapping, call it what  you will, invariably lies with "the man  in the Case. Take for example tho  old couple who did not live very happily together. , The old lady blamed  the husband's drinking "propensities for  the trouble. On the other hand the  husband in presence and hearing of the  old lady put it this way "Whit can a  man dae when hois fashed wi a blathering wife an' she'll no dee!"  # *  The concert in the Methodist church  last Tuesday was most enjoyable and  left nothing to be desired. The singers  (despite the Mayor's introductory  warning shall I call it?) gave a fine  rendering of the various vocal num  bers. If, whore all was excellent, one  might, without prejudice purlicularizo  then 1 would mention as specially  pleasing the following items: ''Worthy is the Lamb," "And the Glory of  the Lord," "i know that my Redeem  or, Liveth." I am the veriest novHoe in  these matters, but cannot refrain fooin  saying that the orchestral musio was  dolightful. What with (for Kelowna)  a prompt start, a large and appreciative audienco, a good program well ran  derod, an oucouraging oNipllunation and  appeal by His Worship, tho Mayor  when we stood up to sing the national anthem 1 am sure wo all felt good  and quite patriotic. But stay! Is this  patriotism?  The patriotism that demands something besides tho services of our soldiers; something in the way of self-  gratification, is a very poor brand  indeed. It behooves us then to lay  to heart Mayor Jones' remarki that  "while wo aro long on patriotism-we  aro short on cash," and "pay, pay,  pay!"

It is joined to the  mainland by a narrow, levol and san-'  dy isthmus. The town is on the east-1  em shore of the peninsula, stands in j  the crater of an extinct volcano, and'  is Biu-rounded by nn indescribably bar-;  ren, cinder-like rocks. The main crat-  er is known as the "Devil's Punch  Bowl." Frequently the heat is intense'  but tho \ eiy dry, hot climate, though  depressing, is unusiml.y h althy for th0  tropics, The Romans occupied it in  the 1st century A.D. Till the discovery  of the Cape route to India (1498) it  was the chief mart of Asiatic produce  for the western nations; but in 1S.*8  it hftd sunk to bo a vilrago of 600  inhabitants. The increasing importance of the Ucd .Sea route gave Aden  great value as a station for England  to hold, and in 1839, after a few hours  contest, Aden fell in tho British hands.  It is of high importance both from a  mercantile and naval point of view,  especially as a grout coating station.  It has a garrison and Btrong forttfiea-  tiona. The population and resource*  of Aden have rapidly increased since  1839 and the opening of the Suez canal in 1869 gave it a great impetuB.  Ihe annual value of its imports sometimes exceeds ?ll',000,0UO, while that  of its export* (coffee, guns, spices)  amounts to ��7,500,000. Adea is a telegraphic station on tins cable between  Suoz and Bombay, and on tho line  from Zanzibar and the Cape. To provide for its growing population, a  considerable territory on the mainland  has been acquired and added to the  peninsula, tho total area (including  tho island of Perim) being 75 square  miles.  ��� O   III N BANDITS T1UED TO CABBY  OFF GIRLS  Discipline in tho German army has  become less strict now as it is composed ;<o largely of men unaccustomed  to military service, writes a war cor  respondent with the Russian army.  Nor ha\'e the new officers the same a11"  thority. Cases are now more frequently reported of thefts and barbarities  committed by individuals or small parties, although generally the conduct  of the troops is good.  A few duys ago in the KoYel region  thciv was a bn:l case of soldiers behaving like bandits, whii h ended by  tragic justice being done to theso rascals. A party of refugees which was  making its way through the woods towards KieiT was met by thirly-five men  of the 96th regiment (if Prussian Laud-  wehr. All had been taken from them,  even the women's can-'ngs, necklaces,  and   rings���mostly of very  little value.  Then the soldiers began to drag the  girls away into the heart of a wood.  'Ihe girls resisted, but were forced to  accompany the men. They had happily not gone far before they met a  number of peasants, some of whom  were oBtiy'nj axes and pitchforks. The  girls immediately -cried for u:Ip, and  the peasants without hesitation fell  bravely upon the Prussian scoundrels.  They were fewer in number and of  course not so well armed, but with  the assistance of the male refugees,  who camo up and joined in the fight,  they accounted for every man of the  marauding band. The whole thirty-  five were left dead, and the refugees  recovered their property and resumed  their journey.   0   TESTING SHRAPJsEL  Among the multitude of requirements  of the Eur0pean conflict una of tr.e  greatest has been that of invisibility  to the foe. Everything must I u made  to bo kept out of sight is far as possible. This has been the rula onlfttd,  on water and in the air. On the land  tho soldiers were hidden, from their  foes by the multitude of trenches or  natural formations of the country. The  guns, field pieces, and aU large ordinance were housed in large underground chambers, or concealed by  shrubbery cut and skilfully arranged.  In tho Dardanelles even the horses  were hid by being placed in large deep  trenches.  The sceno painters were orgim>.f��d in  Ifr&nce to create suitable backgrounds  whore other methods could not be UBed  Some very funny incir1 .ts resulted  from the illusions' to which they resorted. In ono caso, it was desired to  shift a considerable body of French  troops along ��� road which was in full  view of the ennny. The scene painters  made an exact copy of this stretch of  the road and it was stealthily erected  at tho roadside nearest the German  linjs. It Completely hid the real road.  As tho Germans watched it from a distance, it was apparently a peaceful  stretch of country road. But all the  time, a large body of French troops  Was marching freely along behind the  scene to strike the Germans nt an unexpected point. Watering carts were  stationed at intervals to wet down th(  dust raised by the troops, so that  the Germans would not see tho rising  dust clouds and suspect the ruBe.  Somewhat the Bame tactics have been  resorted to in the case of warships  and other sea craft. I'ntil this war,  ihe fighting craft of all countries, in  war, were usually painted simply a  dull grey which rendered them invisible at sea, it was thought, at the  shortest distance. In iho present war,  the scene painter has painted Bea  waves, in effect on the hulls of most  of them. At a very short distance  they seem to merge right into the sea  and are completely invisible.  But, how couid you make an aeroplane, right overhead, invisible, 'that  was a big problem. In the first place,  tho body was painted a very light  bluish white that most closely resembled the very light haze noticeable  about all objects seen at a distanoe.  Then the wings were treated with a  substance which rendered them almost  transparent. And now a material is  used which is itself, substantially  transparent. The net result is. that  tho latest aeroplanes, at only a comparatively low altitude, are practically invisible. This is one of the hardest blows to tho anti air-craft guns of  Germany since tho transparent wing  material is a device of the Allies.  It seems hardly a week passes without some wonderful invention for . the  war. Fortunately most of them are  equally valuable for peace. So we  wonder, continually, what the next  may be.���North Shore Press.  To facilitate tho testing of shrapnel  there has been devised a therraostati-  ca'ly controlled electric oven and it ia  now in use in one of the government  arsenals in Pennsylvania. In the tcst-  'nj of shrapnel shells it is necessary  that a temperature of 120 deg. Fahr.,  bo maintained continuously for a period of twenty-four hours. In the new  electric furnace the ctn'rol of a thermostat breaks the heating circuit  when the tomperaturc exceeds the limit set and a?ain makes it when the  temperature has been lowered to the  required degree. Arcing across the  contact points has been reduced co a  minimum by menns of a condenser  shunted acroBB th*m. It is claimed  that the temperaturo of the oven in a  continuous test of twenty-four hours  did not vary more than one degree.  J. M. CROFT  Bootmaker.
