The business  mainly consisted of dealing with tha  correspondence which had accumulated  sinoe the previous meeting.  Tht chief engineer ol the Provincial  Department of Railways stated in response to an enquiry tnat the date fixed by tht oharter lor tha completion  of - the Canadian Northern Railway  Co.'s lin�� irom Kamloops to Kelowna  is February 37, 1916.  Alderman Sutherland pointed out  that the oompany in all probability  will he applying to the government  for an extension of time in which to  complete this Kne. He suggested that  the counoil take immediate steps to  lay before the government the expediency ol insisting upon the prompt  payment of t(xss, and tho granting of  oertain desirable concessions is one  ol the conditions upon which any further extension of time be granted.  The provincial inspector ol municipalities wrote advising that the.oRy's  Local Improvement Consolidation bylaws, Nos. 311 and 313 had been approved by ehe Lieutenant-Governor ini  counoil.  Several matters in connection with  the fire brigade were dealt with. The  brigade'had made a request to the  oounoil that two new rear springs snd  a new retr a*"* be purchased for the  firo truck. The Fire oommittee wore  authorised to procure them.  Complaint was also made by the  brigade of tho condition oi tbe waste  Nevembtr 2lJtti Will  Me "Dollar Day"  Big Jumble Sale Will Also be  Held in Aid of Hotpital  Saturday, November 30th is to be  made a notable day in Kelowna. On  that day the stores will all oooperate  in holding a big DOLLAR DAY. In  every atore will be displayed bargains  to be bought for the nimble one spot,  and from 'all accounts some of these  will really, open the "eyes of shoppers.  Eaoh merchant will vie with the rest  in giving the biggest dollar's worth,  so you had better gather up all your  twenty dollar bills and change them  into ones'for that occasion. The movement is wakening the enthusiasm of  every storekeeper in town, and there  is no doubt that visitors (rom the  oountry will be given a royal reoep  tion. Special window displays are  being planned, and il the weather man  is anyway decent about it there should  be a orowd in town on that day such  as has not been seen in Kelowna for  a long time. *  But that ie not all- Not only is it  Dollar Day^bufcit is also HOSPITAL  DAY, No, not "tag day", but the  day of the Big Jumble Sale. "And  what iB that?" you ask. Wel��� brieily  it is this. - Some one has had the  haPPy idas that the people ol Kolowna are'possessed'of a large inumber of  superfluous articles, which instead o!  lying around possibly getting into  everybody's way, and adding to the  labor and burden of housekeeping,  might just as well be turned into money, and handed over to some one who  can use them. How many householders  for instance have oddments of furniture, which will not harmonize with  tho rest, misfit pictures, and odds and  ends whioh gather alter a few years  of housekeeping (and don't they,  thought). Now the big idea is this,  that all this stuff should be gathered  together and sold by auction in one  Big Jumble Sale.  But we need not enlarge on this because everybody in Kelowna is going  to got a personal letter on the "subject  from the hospital direotors. These  letters will be delivered on Saturday  by the Boy Scouts and everyone  should make a point of reading them.  If anyone should happen lct.be missed,  he shouldn't get offended, but apply  for one!  And even that is not all. Somebody  is going to get a horse for 2f" cent si  Yes a real live horse���not a nightmare, 0r a clothes horse, or n rookiug  horse, or a saw horse, but a i .sally,  truly pony, and a Rood one loo. This  pony hat been give* by Messrs Casorso Bros., to be sold lor the benefit  of tbe hospital, and this is the way  It will be* done. If you donate 95  oents to the hospital through one of  the numerous collectors, you will be  given a freo tioket, whioh entitles you  to a ohanoa for the pony at the'draw-  ing which wiH take plaoe during  the .Tumble sale on the 30th. Someone must get it.

He expressed tne  opinion that a substantial reduotion  might be made in the-amount of insurance to be placed upon th" contents of the hall, as the old gasoline  engine was no longer being kept there  and a considerable qui n'.ity of hose  was stored on the fire truck.  The oounoil decided to fix 11500 as  the maximum amount of insurance toJ  be plaoed upon the hall and contents,  1700 to be upon the building, and the  remainder according to the instructions of the oommittee.  Tne position of plumbing inspeotor  having been rendered vaoant by the  resignation of Mr. P. R. Corby, Mr.  A. 0. Burnetts was appointed to fill  that Mm.'.  The mayor and oity olerk wore authorised to sign a renewal of the leatt of  the oity polioe offlco for the sum of  W ptr moath, for a term of one year.  First of Kelowna's Boys  to Return From War  Noisy Welcome Given to Sar-  geaht Dug. Lloyd  The first of Kelowna's boys to get  home from tho front is Sergeant 0.  Lloyd, or "Dug" Lloyd as he is-generally known, who arrived on the boat  yesterday, having "done his bit," made  his sacrifice, and been invalided home  on account of his injuries.  ' A rumor got around town during the  previous day that he and "Billy" Wilson would be on tho boat Wednesday.  Later however it was- learned that  Wilsbn had been detained somewhere,  and could not get here untU later, but  '"Dug" was there all right, and a large  crowd gathered on the wharf to give  him a royal welcome. When the boat  came in sight she gave the signal and  soon every steam whistle in tho town  was tooting its loudest, to welcome  the returning hero. There was a loud  cheer Went up from every throat when  "Dug" was sighted on the upper deck  and soon he was on the -wharf having  his hand shaken off by a crowd of admiring friends who gathered round  him. With nerves shattered by his  close acquaintance with heavy shell  fire, partially deafened by a shell  whioh exploded near him, and suffering  from the effects of poisonous gases, he  still shows evident traces ol his sufferings in the lines of his face, though  careful treatment in un Knglish hospital has don,, much towards his recovery.  Sergeant Lloyd was ono of th? first  to leave Kelowna, he go!ng out with  the R.M.R.'s and transferring into the  7th Battalion of the first contingent.  He -was in tho thick of the terrible  fight ad, Ypres, ValenceinneB and Festu-  bert, and his experiences would fill a  book. Of the three friends who went  out together from the K.L.O. bench,  Matthias, Matthews and himself, two  nro wounded and on; killed. Lloyd  and Matthias were out together one  day on "sniping" duty, when. Matthias got a bullet through the head,  and he loll baok dead into the   arms  Sir Charles Topper  Passes Away  Was Last Survivor of Fathers  of Confederation  fatholic Archbishop  Sir Charles Tupper, the "Grand Old  Man" ol Canadian pontics on!   ^inle  surviving member of the band ot Fathers of Confederation, passed a way last  . Saturday in London, England,   where  I he has passed the last few years    ol  his long and useful life.  j    He had lived to the ripe old age ol  198, having been born at Amherst, N,  S., in 1831, and for more than   hall  j a century haB    been closely identified  I with   all the    important   movements  .which have plaoed the Dominion'   of  , Canada   where it stands today.     Dr,  Tupper, as he was then, oame    into  prominence in the political life of Nova    Scotia Ion, before confederation,  and took a most prominent part    in  inducing his unwilling province to join  Canada on the terms proposed.   Soon  after confederation he joined the cabinet of- Sir John Macdonald,     whose  strong right arm he remained   during  the whole subsequent career of    that  great Canadian statesman. His official  life he rounded off in the position   of  High Commissioner in London, resigning that office to lead his party     as  premier in Canada in 1896, after   the  disruption following the death in 1891  ol the old chieftain. Since 1896 he had  not held office, but had taken part in  every   great    imperial    and   national  national movement by voice and pen  Most Rev. Timothy Casey, D.D.  Holds Confirmation Service  The local Catholio church had the  honor of a visit this week from tht  Most, Reverend   Timothy Catty, D.D.,  of his friend. Matthews has been  wounded in the hand, and will no  doubt be returning home soon'  It was in the trenches that Sergeant  Lloyd got his. "knockout." A bg  shell burst just behind him, and  though by a miracle he escaped death,  when he next recovered consciousness  ho was ot Kouen, and on his way to  the hospital in England.  It was at lirst feared that his hearing was permanently destroyed, but  gradually he has recovered to some  ejbtent, and it is to be hoped that time  will still further efface the effects ol  his share in tbe fight for Mb country.  Growers Should Organize  For Orchard Protection  The provincial government bat done  a great deal in the past for the or-  chardist, both in instructing him in  the different' phases of orchard culture,  and in keeping the province free from  many destruetivo pests and diseases,  whioh meant dollars saved from the  annual cost of orohard spraying and  operating. It is this saving���made  possible by the stringent and effioient  effort ol the department of fruit pests,  through its ohief inspeotor, Mr. Thomas Cunningham���in preventing the entrance of disease and pests costly to  control, that has enabled certain* or-  ohardists to continue their operations  with suoeess'and profit. This effort  is being courageously continued, as  evidenced by the carloads ol pours and  apples refused to Vanoouver nnd Viotoria markets, from Washington and  California, due to the presence of Codling Moth and San Jose Scale.  However, there are already sufficient  pests and diseases within the orohard  diatriots of the provinoe, to severely  threaten the finanoial suoeess ol tho  orchardist, where (hey are not properly controlled. The poach grower  must spray for tho Peach-twig Borer,  or Peach Worm as commonly Called,  when found in the peach, or for Peaoh  leaf Curl and Peaoh mildew. The pear  man must spray lor the Blister-mite,  for the Oyster-shell Bark Louse, for  Green and Rosy Apple Aphis, and particularly must he apply himself to the  removal ol ail fire-blight.  The apple grower has a host of insect  enemies, which must be destroyed or  thoir presence reduced to a minimum,  before he oan expect to produce a  maximum crop of marketable apples.  He oannot overlook tho Croon, Rosy,  and Woolly Applo Aphis, the Oyster-  shell Bark > Louse,���in some seasons  and in diverse spots, the Lesser Apple  Worm, the Tarnish Plant-bug, and the  Leaf-roller, dash into economio importance, and require prompt attention. Many orchard centres have  found Apple Scab and Powder}' Mildew reaching alarming proportions,  while   in several   varieties ol applet,  fire-blight has become a constant menace.  This is far from a complete lift of  the forces which nature rallies to test  man's ingenuity and whioh attempt to  destroy and mar tho commercial value  ol the grower's product.  Where the orchardist happens to be  growing a large class ol deciduous  fruits, suoh as poaches, oherries, apricots, plums, prunes, pears and apples  on a limited area, hiB problem of pest  control is a complex one, as it is difficult to find a spray combination, applied at one time, which will effectively combat the diseases and pests whioh  may attack the orehard.  We need not go further to conclude  that the Iruit grower's problem of pest  and disease control, is even now a  lalfe one, and that no effort must be  spared on tbe Part of the grower, as  well us on that of the government, to  save our orchardists from faoing possible liquidation through this cause.  Community Organisation  Whenever people wish to fight a common enemy, their first step is to get  together aU the forces whioh wilt aid  the campaign or make for suoeess, and  decide upon a means ol organising  those forees s0 as, to most efficiently  bring about desired aotion with least  loss and expense. Our military units  are trained and organised to .machine-  like perfection, s0 that they may aet  uniformly' and together in destroying  and opposing troops. Were the men  in the army to act singly, without being organized into companies, without  offioers to lead them, they would present a lamentable front to the enemy.  This effioienoy brought about through  organization, is exactly what is needed by the fruit growers in their own  neighborhoods, to properly fight the  insect pests and diseases common to  all the orohards of the distriot. Fruit  growers must have "community Organization," so that they may get vni-  torm aotion, by all the growers of a  community, in exterminating the eon*  i most ueverena    uinoiny t-aaey, u.u.,  I Archbishop of Vancouver, who it on a  confirmation tour ol the diocese.  It is some eight years sinoe the Cat  holio congregation of Kelowna had the  honor of a visit from the spiritual  head of, the diooese, then Archbishop  Dontenwill, and the first time einoe  the ereotion of the new church, and  there was a large gathering at eaoh  of the servioes to do honor to the  distinguished visitor.  Archbishop' Casey is a native of New  Brunswick, where he Was born in 1663.  He was ordained Bishop in. 1901, and  assumed chafge of the large Archdiocese of Vanoouver, in whioh the Kelowna parish is included in 1913.  The Archbishop arrived by Saturday's boat, and on Sunday morning  said Mass at 8 o'olook and after  High Mass at 10.30 he administered  confirmation to the large number of  Candidates, over fifty, who presented  themselves.  Beiore administering confirmation  HiB Grace, in a very eloquent and  forceful sermon impressed upon the  candidates the great importance of the  sacrament that they were about to,  reoeive.  In the ovening alter Benediotion, His  Grace also preached a, very interesting  and instructive sermon on- the origin  of the Catholio church.  After the evening sermon on Sunday  a reception was held in the ohuroh,  when His drace was presented with  the following address from the congregation of the church:,  The Most Rev. Timothy Casey, D.D.  Archbishop of Vancouver.  We, tho congregation ol the Churoh  of the Immaculate Conception, beg to  extend to Your Grace a most cordial  and sinoero welcome.  The visit of tbe Bishop is always a  red letter day to a congregation animated with the true Catholio spirit,  but on this occasion the happy event  is greatly enhanced by the fact thgt  this is our first opportunity to greet  you as the head of this vast archdiocese, and to hear from your fatherly  Kps words of advice and encouragement. Above all we appreciate the  great spiritual blessings which you  come to confer cn so many of our  young people by the imposition of  your consecrated hands, and we do  hope und most earnestly pray that  strengthened by the Holy Ghost they  may not only remain practical members of the ohuroh but ma}' be by the  shining example ol all Christian virtues "the good order of Christ unto  God" and thus lay the foundation of  a future prosperous Catholic parish.  As a parish we are only of recent  date. It is true many years before any  white settlers pi nitrated into this  beautiful valley the Oblate Fathers,  the heroic pioneers of the wild west,  founded the old Mission as a oentral  plaoe, whence they attended to the  spiritual needs of tho scattered Indians  but when, owing to the altered conditions tho Bishop of New Westminster  assigned to them a new field of labor  the Kelowna Mission became dependent  of Vernon whence it was attended for  a number of years onoe or twioe a  month. In November, 1908, the Bev.  Father Verbeke was appointed as our  resident parish priest. Sinoe then we  have erected, at a cost oi 15,000 this  church and the modest littlo structure  whieh serves as a rectory. No doubt  in* tho coureo of your pastoral visits  Your Grace has found many churches  and rectories more beautiful than ours  yet considering our small number and  our finanoial means, we leel proud of  our little churoh, whieh has a beauty  all its own in that it is free from the  least stain of debt.  We feel confident that wo have Your  Grace's kind ioterest and btessinir, to  further all undertakings 'for tho spiritual and temporal welfare of our parish and in . return it is our earnest  prayer that in the manifold duties of  your high offioe. tho Divine Guidance  may most plentifully attend you.  In voicing 'once more our deep aPpre  elation ol the great privilege we enjoy  of having Your Grace as ear honored  Woman's Missionary  Society Convene  Eighth Annual Gathering it  Attended by Many Delegates  The eighth annual convention ofjbe  Woman's Missionary Society of the  | Okan��gan district was head in Kelowna yesterday when some twenty delegates were present from til parts of  the valley. The meetings whioh consisted of afternoon and evening sessions were held in the Methodist  ohuroh.  In the afternoon at 2 o'olock the  chair was taken by the distriot organiser, Mrs. J. W.

Mrs. Jones was re-elected to  the offioe of district organizer for) another year and Mrs. MoBride of Vernon became secretary. Mrs. R. W.

Greetings were extended to.the visitors (rom "Sister Societies" in Kelowna, Miss Reekie speaking on behalf o' the Mission Circle of the Baptist church, Mrs. Ball, of the Presbyterian Woman's Missionary Sooiety  and Mrs. Fuller of the W.C.T.U. Mrs.  B. A. aMoorehouac, of Pentioton followed with a "Round'Table Talk." A  solo Was sung by Mrs. L. Dilwortn.  The meeting was then adjourned and  the interval before the evening session  was taken up with supper, which waa  served in the church, and social intercourse.  Upon reassembling at 8 o'olook, the  Kev. J. C. Switser gave nn address to  the convention on "War and Missions"  in whioh the influence ol the present  disastrous conflict on the work of *>  missionary organizations was fully discussed.

BUKNETTE  In replying to. the address His Grace  remarked that the point whioh pleased  and surprised him the most was the  fact that the chunk was clear ot all  debt. He said that in bis various  travels throughout the province he hat  visited very'few churches that could  say as much, as nearly all were, i*  common with other public institutions,  loaded down with debts and mortgages.

The Insurance of the  Thn fruit grower nccda to bt> a vory  wicked person, if this is a true suying,  "There is no rest for the wicked." The  six months of struggle to grow, protect and safely remove thc season'-*  crop of fruit, is ended or about to be  rndcd, and tho fruit grower no doubt  feels he w entitled to a well earned  rest. JuBt here, the writer wishes to  offer some suggestions and to earnestly point out, that growers owe thtin-  aclves one final effort. *  Someone has remarked, "lousiness, is  busin-ss, and the oreliard 'business'  should he, if it isn't." Tho sueeeynrul  businoss mun takes a vm-utiim, not  when lie has earned a rest, but when  ho ha" earned a rest he is certnin his.  absence will mit handicap h:* future  business. The orehaixfist ean lie no  exception,���he must not run awa>" from*  or postpone duties which effect next  season's crop, or the lifo and vitality  of nis trees. While tlioro are many  orchard operation* which can l>e conveniently performed in the oai'ly   fall,  the writer wishes to emphasize, a very  essential one.  The Fall Campaign Against  Fire Blight  This bacterial disease, to which or-  chardists should need no introduction,  can best be cleaned up as soon as the  trees become dormant. If there are  any fruit growers who have not had  practical instruction on how to cut  blight, awl properly disinfeoC tho  wounds, the writer requests .Jhey get  in touch with the district inspector at  onee, or writo direct to the assistant  inspector of fruit |x-sta, Vernon, B.C.  The Economic Importance of  Fire Blight  That firo blight offers tho Worst menace to the life of apple, crab al'l'le and  pear trees in the Okanagan Valley, of  aU the diseases .and pests we have* to  fight, there is littlo doubt, and it's  control or eradication in turn is only  possible through the removal of all  sources of infection. Blight carries  ovor the-<winter in the form of liody-  blight, or what is called the canker  stage. This may bo as a olearlv defined canker on tho main trunk of the  (ree, or simply a completely, some*  times partially, blighted limb, |wig  or water-apout, and quite frequently  blackened leaves cling to the limb or  twigs as a signal that the tree needs  at tention.  Kmphnsizo the Importance of Fall  Cutting  It is not tho writers intention to  outline details for the cutting of blight  properly, but to request that fruit  growers mako a definite attempt to  remove all the bUght infected trees at  once, and to point out, that the best  safeguard, antl the cheapest jiisurann-  on trees, is the absolute removal of  all blight this fall.

They  wanted these Jrishim n to march  around Berlin. About fifty men who  thought they would like a change of  scenery, went, but, said one: "We fjave  them nil a good hiding, whin they  came back.

Comments and queries are welcomed  but fow have been raised. -  The oft-recurring question of popular  und scientific names has boen well1 summed up by J'rof. Hritton of New York.  'There should bo no antagonism in the  uso of scientific und popular names  sinoe their purposes are quite different.  Science deniunds certainty and universality, and hence a single universal  name for each plant. F0r this the  Latin has been adopted. The vernacular names are a part of the growth  and development of the language of  each people. Though these names are  sometimes indicative 'of specific characters, and hence' Bcientifioally valuable,  they are for the most part not scientific but utilitarian, emotional or picturesque, for the common appreciation  ol the plant world. They reflect tho  mental attitude of each people,  throughout its history, towards the  plant kingdom, and ths thoughts, suggestions and affections which it has  aroused in them. II these are rich  and multitudinous, as in tho Anglo  Saxon raoe, so will the plant names  be also."

The Kaiser aod tbe Great  (It was.in June, 1908, that the Kaiser, at a secret council at Potsdam,  after witnessing the flight of a new  Zeppelin, made a remarkable speech;  in the course af whioh he said: "God,  our Ally, has given into our handa the  means 6f saving our empire from tiie  dangers which are threatening its hep-  pinesB and welfare. ��� You know what I  mean. It is the wonderful invention  whioh His KxcoHeucy Count 'Zeppelin  was enabled, through the grace of God  to make lor the safeguarding, and glory ol our beloved Fatherland. In this  invention God has placed the means  at my disposal to lead Germany triumphantly out of her present diffioul  ties and to mako good, once and for  al'.-the words' ol the poet, "Deuteoh  land, Deutschland ubaV Allcs."  Now the danger that threatened, tne  German Empire at that time, as the  Kaiser admitted in the earlier part ol  this particular speech, was the socialistic, and republican element among  the people. ' That spirit���and it was  the cry of a nation (or its just rights  and privileges���he determined to stifle  by turning its thoughts to the coming  conquest of this country, and he grasp  ed at the Zeppelin as affording nn admirable opportunity lor carrying out  his diabolical plan to be supreme War  Lord ol a vanquished world. This ia  evidenced by aae of the closing statements of the address, which read*:  "We shall strike as soon as I have a  sufficiently large lint of ZeppeKns at  my disposal. I have given orders- for  the hurried construction ol more airships of the improved Z-ppebn type,  and when these are ready *e shall destroy England's North Sea, Channel,  and "Atlantio fleets, after which nothing on earth can prevent the lBnding  of* our army on British soil, and its  triumphant march to London."  Ask the average German what will  injure the British nation most, and he  will unhesitatingly answer, "Our Zeppelins." These monster ships of the  air ara, in tne imagination of the German people, the one weapon which will  more thnn any other arm, be the  means of destroying our cities, forts,  harbors, Hnd warships, thus vanquishing their most hated loe, Great Britain. Indeed, it will not require muoh  evidenoe    to ahow that Germany hus  V  A War of Coatrasts  When the German talks of his country as the freest land on earth, he  leaves the ordinary englishman gaspingly incredulous. If the two people  ! differ profoundly in their views and  ' attitudes towards life and art, they  must necessarily fail to agree on a  definition of freedom   It is indeed a war of contrasts. In  their idoiis of religion, ol freedom, and  ol the State, in their attitudes towards nearly all questions ol morals  and aesthetics, in their philosophies ol  life, in the structure of their societies,  in their views on the function, o' education and in innumerable points ^of  manner* and social observances, the  British Bnd Gorman peoples are not  merely opposed, but fundamentally antipathetic. Their government is an  aristocracy nf talent drilling a nation  of mediocrities who have neither the  -wish nor the ability to govern themselves. Ours is a democratic system  the operative impulse ol whioh works  from below. Thsy exalt the State"  where we exalt the man. In nearly  everything that cooceros the work of  ni'miii'Mralion they e'e experts and  we are'amateurs. They make a fetish  of rules and order and flawless c  cienoy. We are content with a genial  disarray and a happy-go-lucky method  of meeting emergencies as they arisa.  Their sohools do little but teaoh; ours  do almost everything except teach. It  is not a German theory thnt education  has anything to do with character or  refinement. They aim at the utmost  development of the mind; we are satisfied if our boys leave sohool with a  smattering of knowledge and a still  smaller range ol ideas ,m.l intellectual  interests, but broken in to responsibility, with ~$T well-defined code of justice  and honor, and the foundations of a  strong, manly, and chivalrous character.���Sydney Brooks, in "The Fort  nightly Keview,'-'  Wireless Telegraphy aad  toe War  '   Aeroplanes and airships daily use thd  medium of radio-telegraphy for trans-  British Norses af the Freet  Since December last (says a speoial  correspondent of the London Times)  200 British nurses have been working  hard all along the French line.

One ol tho most striking achievements was undoubtedly the severing,  within four hours of tho declaration of  war, ol tho whole of Germany's submarine cables. As far as .wired com-  munieuliiin is concerned, that country  has remained ever since virtually isolated. The only direct telegraphio  communication possible between Germany and such neutra' countries as do  not border- her boundaries has been  effected by means of wireless telegraphy through the high power stations  at various points in tha Fatherland.  Our allocators with their poetic idealism used to picture the air as peopled  by invisible spirit-strife contemporaneous with the siri'!'i;V tn thc surface of  the earth. Thc Vnlkyria of our northern ancestors form only typical instances ol u widespread belief. Today  we have turned this poetic fiction into  a reality, and perhaps it is hardly too  much to say thut the strife in tbe  ether ranks only second to the titanic  struggle beneath it. ���Tho Wireless  World.  fought with disease, they have tactful-  ly made their methods of nursing acceptable to the French doctors, they  have Shown the metal of whioh tbey  are made by their resourcefulness .in  very difficult circumstances, and they  have learned not only a good deal   of  to French, but a great deal about the  an French character, and their knowledge  re- has brought thsm much wisdom. They  rank as offioers, and have their own  mess and whatever privileges for personal comfort may be going. But comforts are rare in the danger tone of  the armies, and the position of the  British nurses has often been perilous.

Shep-  and perfection ol Ihese wonderful craft  stone, in the "London Magazine."  Dr. I.ucien Dumont ol Paris, has  made public details concerning a new  gas used by the Germans in the  Champagne. Three men who took  part in tho battle there have made  written statements to the effect that  they were surrounded for a few seconds by clouds of deep green gas  with a rather pleasant odor. Soldiers  without masks lost consciousness for  varying periods. I'pi n re^a'ning consciousness the victims suffered convulsive ���t tacks resembling epileptic  fits. General prostration wns the result, but there were none of the oym-  tonis associated hitherto with gas  poison. Prussic acid is believed to  be the basis of t'h.% new gas.

A careful survey of the slide area  in the Gatlliard cut in thu Panama  canal reveals the fact that there probably are 10,000,000 cubic yards ol  earth in motion whioh must be taken  out by dredging operations before  permanent channel through the out is  passible. This is the conclusion  reached by the oanal engineers, who  concede that there is now little hope  ol opening the waterway, even' for tno  temporary use of shipping, much before the first of the year.

On one occasion when MiBs 'Stocks was  seriously ill. Miss Cavell was engaged  as nurse, and created n very favorable  impression. Naturally the family were  very muoh shocked to learn of her  death under such terrible circumstances.  ^HdtldiS *>ven. It attracts and hoTTs the  *T&r��& heat far better than most oven  materials.

The  seeds are ted to~farm animals and  poultry for fattening purposes and alto for their condimental and medicinal  properties. By cold pressure the seeds  yield 1Q to 20 per cent, oi edible ui) of  fine quality and by hot pressure a  larger quantity of poorer quality, use  ful in soap making, wool dressing, in  paint* and in oertain kinds of > arnish.  The oil of sunflower seeds is not produced commercially in the United  States.  The sunflower does well in "almost  any soil suitable for growing corn.  The seeds are planted about 2 iorjiet  deep, very early in the spring, m  row* tores feet apart. The suds miy  be dropped by hand or planted with a  drill' 2 to 3 inohes apart. Whan the  plants are 8 to 19 inches high, thay  should be thinned, to stand about 18  inches apart in the row. If planted  in hills or checks, 3 by 3 feet, two  good plants may ba allowed to each  hill. From I to 8 pounds oi teed are  required per acre, if planted in bills,  or 10 to MS pounds if plant*! in drills  Sunflowers are cultivated practically  the same as corn. For seed production the (ingle headed varieties are  recommended. Th* Mammoth Russian  is considered beet, especially for the  production of oil.  Sunflowers are harvested when the  heads are fully ripe, usually about the  middle of September. The method* of  harvesting varies according to season  and circumstances. Usually a wagon  is driven alongside the "ows, the heads  are cut off with a long sharp knife,  thrown into the wagon box and against  the sideboard whereby a large, part of  the seed it shelled 0ut. A workman in  the wagon uses a stout stick or  curry comb to remove any seed remaining in the head, which is then  thrown upon the ground- In thie man  ner three men usually harvest at least  aa acre a day.. The seed is cleaned on  a fanning mill, spread out on a floor  and turned at intervals until thorough  ly dry, sinoe new seed tends to become  musty if closely stored in large ijuen-  trUes.  According to the latest census figures tho average yield per acre of sunflower seed in the United State* was  13.3 bushels. Yields of as much as  100 bushels per acre have been obtained, and it is probable that 30 to SO  bushels per acre may be expeoted under good conditions. The bushel weight  is quite variable, but the weight ol  seed per acre usually rentes from 100  To 1600 pounds. The average prioe reoeived by growers for several years  past was approximately 2 oent* per  pound.  Several important announeement* te-  favrding postal regulations hav* jnet  m*de by the postomes depart  Among other thing* th* department at Ottawa announce* anew  war. tax on letters and parcel* from  New Zealand. A half penny war tax'  has been imposed on postal packets,!  involving an additional oharge on'  letters and parcels lor Canada. This  will' not increase the postage to New  Zealand. An order was reoently  made by the department that in aU  ordinary circumstances the re-direction of parcels, either from one point  to another within Canada or (Tom  Canada to other countries, gave riej  to fresh postage. It ha* now been decided, until further notice to allow'  paroels addressed to Hi* Majesty's  ships, or to British or Canadian  troops on active servioe in Canada or  elsewhere, to be re-directed free of  any re-direction charges. Thi* refers  to re-direction only. At the time paroels are mailed they must, of course,  be prepaid at the usuU rates.  A*-t���U-���I.   ����-*-.-    B.t.L  XMMy I mm run  The Ontario Department of Agriculture has decided to present a silver  medal to the boy or girl in **eh county who in the "War Plot Potato Competition" raises the largest (quantity of  potatoes. Tne medal under consideration bears the British Arms and the  Canadian beaver, and will be engraved with the name of the winner. In  addition to these medals, 'he 12,000  children who have entered the Competition will have an incentive in the  prizes being offered by tbe Rural  school fair boards for war potatoes.  From present indications the Department of Agriculture should have some-  thrag like 40,000 bags available for  sale at the ead of the season, the proceeds of which will be given to the  Patriotic Fund.

How often have you, ae an orchardist faithful to the test interests of  your section, carefully Bprayed for  some pest when right across your  north fence line, your neighbor haB not  planned to do it at the same time, or  is purposely neglectful? .Every neighborhood may have its drone, who  needs not only the coercion of the government to make him do what is  right, but also the energetic pressure  of his own neighbors, and fellow or-,  chardists, who can wield the weapon  of "Public Opinion" unitedly and with  deadly effect.  Each district may also have its absentee owners, whose orchards need  proper attention to prevent them from  becoming a source of infestation. The  community organization can discuss  ways and means for dealing with such  handicaps to the extermination of  pests and diseases.  In helping growers who are united,  the government feel.it cannot possibly  be showing any favoritism to individuals, and knows that in cases of positive neglect, in enforcing, the Agricultural Act, it has the support and interest of each grower of the community behind it.  It is not the intention of this article  to exhaust tbe list of advantages in  "Community Organization" but simply to call the attention of fruit growers to the need of it, nnd to note some  of its strong points.  Further articles on the subject of  "Orchard Protection" which will be  printed in future issues lo that every  grower may become alive to the ad-,  vantages of pulling together, and be  ready to do hiB Bhar(. when thi? opportunity is offered.  t.
