THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 1918.���4 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  Second Session of  Legislature Opened  First Woman Member Takes  Seat   -   New Speaker  The second session of the fourteenth parliament of British Columbia opened laat Thursday. There  was an unusually large crowd in  attendance, much interest centreing on the enrolling of the new  members, who take their places aa  a reault of the recent bye-elections.  Mrs. Ralph Smith, of courae, as the  firat woman to occupy a aeat in the  legislature, drew the moat attention  and throughout a very trying  ordeal bore heraelf with becoming  grace. , In the members' corridor  before formal opening took place  she had to run the gauntlet of a  good deal of bandinage, but "proved fully equal to the situation. The  leader of the opposition assisted  the premier in escorting Mrs. Smith  to the speaker's chair (or formal  introduction.  The Speaker himself, Mr. John  Keen of Kaslo, waa himself in a  new poaition, having been elected  to that office in auccession to Mr.  J. W. Weart who presided at the  1917 session.  Premier Brewster nominated Mr.  John Keen of Kaslo as sperker, declaring that few men were better  known in the province than Mr.  Keen who came to British Columbia  in 1689. Few would command  more respect aa he waa.a man who  as speaker would abolish partiality  and bring a wide knowledge to  bear upon the duties of the chair.  Both sides of the Houae would  have been pleaaed to have Mr.  Weart remain as speaker, commented Mr. Bowser in seconding  the Keen nomination. Mr. Weart  had been able and (air, The aame  (air treatment could be expected  -y (rom Mr. Keen,  There waa hearty, applauding  (rom the members and the galleries  when Mrs, Smith was introduced  to the speaker. Premier Brewster  remarked on the special interest  attaching to that historic moment  aa she waa the first woman to have  parliamentary seat in the province,  Her knowledge of governmental  affairs and of social conditions  would make her an acqnisition, he  thought.  J. H. Hawthornwaite, the new  member for Newcastle and a well-  known former member of the  Houae, and W.A. McKenzie, member elect for Similkameen were alao introduced. Richard Wallia,  the successful Conservative candidate (or Alberni waa also on hand  but did not take hia aeat, the writ  (or that district not being returnable  until all the ballot boxes had been  received. Some of these had been  delayed by stormy weather.  A pleasant little diversion was  created by little Miss Myra Jean  Calbraith marching up the aisle between the members' desks and  placed two huge bouqueta of red  and white blooms upom Mrs.  Smith's desk. Premier Brewster  waa presented with a basket of  white and " yellow flowers. The  presentation to Mra. Smith was on  behalf of the Women'a Benefit  Association "of the World. She ia  a charter membet of St. Cecilia Review, Nanaimo.  These preliminariea over the  official speech from the throne was  read by His Honour the Lieutenant  Governor, and tha House waa  opened for business.  Hon. Mr. Ferris introduced a  bill to amend the Municipal Elections Act. |t ia to validate the election  of reeve, councillors and commissioners in municipalities where the  authorities overlooked laat year's  Municipal Act amendment calling  for affidavits of qualifications from  candidates. All elected officers so  affected are given thirty daya in  which to file the necessary statements. The bill also provides that  where police commissioners were  elected by acclamation they may  decide in writing which is to sit  (or the one-year term and which  ��� (or the two years. Failing an agreement between them the Municipal  Council ahalt have the choice. v  With the filing of departmental  reports the brief opening session  wss adjourned until Monday.  Unexpected Adjournment of Legislature  Premier to Attend Important  Convention at Ottawa  Closely following the opening of  the legislature the aome what unexpected announcement was made  that the House would be adjourned until February 26th to allow  Premier Brewster to attend an important conference of provincial  tiers at Ottawa.   The Alberta  Elature has been obliged to  the same course. The Pre-,  mier's departure haa renewed the  rumors that he may be taken into  the Federal Cabinet.  The importance of^he conference is outlined by Premier Borden  in hia telegram to Mr. Brewster under date of February 5, in which a  complete list of the subjects to be  discussed is given. Among others  are the following matters of vital  moment:  Increased production of food  stuffs and co-operation suggested  between Federal and Provincial  governments for that purpose and  the consideration of any necessary  measures.  Labor conditions with respect to  agricultural production.  Demobilization, including the  care of returned soldiers, vocational training and rehabilitation, opportunities (or employment and  land settlement.  Fuel production and distribution  including provision (or any anticipated fuel shortage during the  coming year.    , *  Mayor Will Head Loca  Food Conservation Committee  J. W.

Hinckaon are Kelowna soldiers  reported to bs on their way to  Vancouver, and consequently may  be in Kalowna any time.  Establish Modern Sash  and Door Factory  A business development of con  siderable importance to Kelowna  ia being made thia week in the  extension of the wood-working  plant of Mr. S. M. Simpson into a  modern sash and door factory.  Mr. Simpson haa leased the buildings (acing the park formerly.occu-  pied by the Kelowna Canning Co.,  and is busy thia week moving his  plant and machinery to the new  location. During the past couple  of weeks Mr Simpson haa been at  the coast and haa purchased several thousand dollars worth of the  latest impri ved sash and door ma.  chinery, which added to his now  extensive plant will make one of  the most complete wood-working  factories in the interior. The buildings he haa acquired afford a floor  space several timee larger than that  of the old premises, in addition to  large storage sheds for seasoned  lumber.  Most of the new machinery is  already here, and includea an up-  to-date sash and door "sticker,  capable of turning out not only  these goods but moulding of all  descriptions, a chain mortising  machine of the latest pattern, and  a triple drum sander. Electric  motora will supply the power,  These in addition to circular saws,  band saws, jointer, lathes, drilling  machines, planer and other plant  from the present premises, will  afford an equipment capable of  handling work on a very extensive  scale, and ahould draw business  from this part of the valley which  haa previously been going outside.  A carload of coast cedar ia on its  way. The lumber shipment also  includes Cottonwood and spruce  for fruit ladders on the making of  which Mr. Simpson has already  built up a considerable business.  Mr. J. W. Gibson, supervisor of  agricultural education in the province, but also now acting under instructions from the government as  general organizer of Food Conservation committees, was the principal speaker at a public meeting  held last Friday evening in the  Board of Trade room. The meeting had been called by the Mayor  on a suggestion from Mr. Gibson  to the city council, mainly for the  purposing of organizing a fully  representative local committee  which would undertake to arouse  public interest in the urgent need  (or (ood conservation in order that  the Allied armies and peoples  might be saved (rom starvation.  There have been ao many conflicting viewa and reports, said Mr.  Gibson, and so many contradictory  resolutions had been pouring in to  the Food Controller (rom all quarters, that the need had been felt, if  the movement were to be made  effective, of more co-ordination of  effort. The plan was not to make  a new organization but to consolidate the different forcea already  working to the same end, by the  appointment in all citiea of a committee representing the City Council. Board "of Trade, Farmers' Institute, Women's Institute, churches  and fraternal societies. All these  organizationa could be brought together by elected representatives,  so that if they apoke on a subject  it would mean that all the people  spoke. These committees would  work under the auspices of the  mayor and council.  Mr. Gibson went on to speak of  the seriousness of the present food  situation, a matter which had  never been properly explained to  the general*public. Even before  the war it waa aaid the (ood shortage hand begun to be (elt due to  tha growth of city populations and  the dwindling of food-producing  rural communities. When it was  remembered that thirty or forty  millions of men had been removed  (rom productive labor to fight, it  would be realized what a crisis  had been thrust upon us. Then  was not nearly enough (ood being  produced in the world today to  aupply its inhabitants.  It was estimated that in Canada  there was more (ood per capita  than anywhere else in the world,  except > perhaps Argentina. This  mean all the more opportunity to  do a great service to the Allied  nations, and every extra pound of  food which could be saved in  this country meant so much more  available to ship overseas.  Although there were some callous people who were satisfied (o  think there was no fear of starvation in Canada, yet the majority of  citizens desired to do their duty in  food saving and production, and  only needed leadership.  Many people were advocating  compulsory rationing, but it was  doubtful if that would prove a  remedy owing to the difficulty of  enforcing it. The only practical  way was through a campaign of  education, and every means would  be taken advantage of to bring the  correct information before the  public. Substitution was almost as  necessary as saving,���the using of  certainlfood-stuffs in order to save  others essential to the carrying on  of the war. It waa not suggested  that people ahould be insufficiently  nourished, but should be wisely  nourished in auch a way that  essential foods would be saved.  Coming back to the question of  organizing a local committee, Miss  Reekie, secretary,of the Women's  Institute, read over the following  list of those who had been appointed by the Institute when that  body first took up the matter of  food conservation some months  ago. There was considerable discussion as to whether this committee should be allowed to stand or  should be disbanded and a new  body appointed composed of members elected horn the different organizationa in town. Finally it waa  left to the various organizations to  either 'ratify* the appointment of  such members of the existing com.  mittee as they wished to represent  them or to choose others from  amongst their numbers who would  do so.  Mayor Sutherland was appoint  ed chairman, Mr. L. V. Rogers  consenting to act in the meantime  as secretary.  Following are the other members of rhe committee: Messrs.  J.W.Jones, L E. Taylor, G. S.  McKenzie, W. R. Trench, G. Chick  N. D. McTavish, J. Gordon, D.  Leckie, Miss Reekie, and Mes-  damea Rogers, Dundas, Knowles,  Brent, Murdock, Willita, McDonald, and Rev. E. D. Braden ; K.LO.

Pruning ihe Apple Tree  By BEN HOY, Assistant Horticulturist, Kelowna  Joe Mallet Paret, who was well  known in Kelowna aome time  back, has according to information  received been awarded the military medal for distinguished services. His brother Jack left Kelowna with the 172nd,  The Prisoners of War Funds receipts for January totalled $147.05,  which amount haa been expended  as follows: The P. of F. Fund $90,  local Red X $43, balance retained  in hand $14.05. The committee  desire to thank Mr. Trenwith for a  donation of flags. Mesdames  Shayler and Knowlea collected tbe  following: Lee Bon $10, Quong  Ling $1, St. Louis Cafe 50c, a  stranger 25c,for Patriotic Fund.  Ths pruning of spple trass ia avary important factor in tke production of high  clese apples, yet is one thnt is not well  understood. Though a great deal hae  been written on the subject, and much demonstration work carried on in this line(  a short drive in the country will convince  the most casual observer, of tha truth ol  thia statement. To prune, and get good  results, the pruner must not only know his  orchard, but must know and understand  eaeh individual tree. Ho must have hie  ideal of a perfect tree and tha results he  wishes to obtain in mind, and than knowing hie soil and climatie conditions he ie  ready te go to work.  The practical purposes of pruning snd  points to ba kept in mind when doing the  work are as follower  1. Style of tree.  2. Health and strength, ,  3. Hest and light.  4. Bearing* habits.  5. Size of fruit.  There are a number of different styles  of tress advocated by prominent fruit growers in different parts of tba country, but  there are certain points that all are agreed  Upon. The tree must ba low' sat with  blanches rising obliquely. Unlaw it is  low est it is inconvenient and costly to  handle. A high heeded tree with branches growing horizontally away from the  trunk ie herder to cultivate around than a  low headed tree, unless the branches  start eo far from the ground that a horse  can pass under without touching. This  system in a commercial plantation ie un.  practicable becauee the cost of all other  work such as spraying, picking, pruning,  Kelowna Creamery  Butter Wins  First Prize for Prints in Face  of Keen Competition  If any further testimony were  needed as to the skill of Mr. S.  Thomas of the Kelowna Creamery  as a maker of first-class butter, it  haa been supplied during the paat  week when in competition with  nearly all the principal creameries  in B.C., the Kelowna product took  the first prize for butter prints (or  the second year in succession.  The contest waa held in connection with the convention of the  B.C. Dairymen's Association. The  competition was keen aad the  judging necessarily close, and it ia  a matter for sincere congratulations to the creamery for their  success.  Much scientific attention has  been paid to the making of butter  during the past few years, and the  equipment used in the best dairies  haa consequently undergone considerable development and modification. Some of the dairies competing were amongst the finest  equipped in the west. Manager  Thomas may, therefore, be pardoned for feeling some little pride  that with a comparatively small  and young concern he has been  able to pace with all the modern  methods and processes and to produce an article which can be classed so high.  In addition to the first prize for  butter prints, third prize has been  gained for " solids " in comparison  with fourth last year.  ore, is increased.  Whether to grow the vase-sheped tree,  the pyramid, or the semi-pyremid tree  will depend to some extent on the variety  and the individual tree.. Ths semi-pyramid is the one most largely grown and  advocated at the present time. In thie  system the leader is allowed to grow for  the first five or six yesrs snd then ia dis-  continued. Thie gives a strong open tree  thet is capable of carrying large loads of  fruit without breaking, and combines the  good features of thc open headed tree  and the pyramid.  HEALTH AND STRENGTH  Low headed trees with ths branches a  good distance apart, and wall distributed  around the main stem, starting at right-  angles to tba stem snd then being trained  obliquely upward give ue the strongest  tree. With the branches a good distance  apart than ie plenty of roorrtfor theit full  development, and the right angle crotches  avoid danger of splitting, and do not form  places for disease sporss to enter. Being  low headed nllowa lees of the trunk exposed and there ie not as much trouble with  sun scald. With the branches all starting  from ths same point around tha msin stem  there Is always a pocket ta harbor insects  end disease spores formed, snd a favourable place ta hold ice and snow in the  winter, often ths cause of bark injury and  splitting,  HEAT AND LIGHT  Heat and light are both essential for tha  formation of bude and coloring of the fruit.  A close dense tree encourages the growth  Successful Masquerade  Dance  The masquerade ball held Mon.  day evening in Morrison's Hall  for the benefit of the Prisoners of  War Fund, proved to be one of  the most successful events of the  kind ever held in Kelowna. In  fact it is doubtful if ever so large  a crowd was got together (or a  dance before. In all there must  have been some two hundred  people present. The dresses were  especially good, and aome must  have lavished a great deal of care  on their preparation.  The prize for the best lady's  costume was won by Miss Beatta  Lloyd-Jones with a very pretty  coatume of the early Victorian  period. Mrs. Henning, sister of  Mrs. Collett, took second prize  with a clever Turkish costume,  Of the men's, Mr. J. C. Richards  came first as Father Time, Mr. G,  McKenzie leading the comic costumes as a nigger.  It ahould be mentioned that the  whole of the ptoceeds, $132.75  will go to the Fund, all expenses  of hall, &c, having been _ paid by  the fruit shipping, canning and  evaporating firms in Kelowna. To  Mr. J. C. Richards is due most of  the credit (or the organization of  the affair, which waa voted one of  the best dancea ever held here.  ice of Food Controller is Abolished  Canada Food Board WiU Take  Over tk* Work  Under an order-in-council passed on Saturday the office of the  food controller is abolished and  the (unctions formerly exercised by  that official, greatly enlarged, will  now be assumed by a new organization to be known as tba Canada  Food Board.  The board will consist of three  members, H. B. Thomson, who succeeded Hon. W. J. Henna, as (ood  controller, Hon. C A. Dunning,  provincial treasurer of Saskatchewan, and J. D. McGregor of Manitoba. Mr. Thomson is to be chairman of the board,  Mr. Dunning, who, it will be recalled, recently went to Ottawa to  organize the greater production  campaign, will devote himself to  the problem of production. He will  work in close co-operation with  the provincial governments and  will co-ordinate (ederal and provincial organizationa to be employed in the greater production movement. Mr. McGregor will address  himself to the important teak of  providing the agricultural labor ne*  cessary to make the greater production campaign a success.,  The Canada Food Board will  thus bring under a single executive  the work of dealing with the (ood  problem in all its bearings. It will,  it is believed, effect a co-ordination  of effort and a concentration of energy from which (ar reaching results are anticipated.  A question that will receive immediate attention is that of mobilization of farm labor in towns and  cities and make it available for tbe  farm.  Wedding Bells  QUINN-McGARRITY  Pte. Chas. Quinn, lately returned  to Kelowna (rom aervice in France,  was married Monday morning at  the Catholic church to Miss Theresa  M. McGarritv, daughter of Mr. and  Mra. T. McGarrity, of Kelowna.  The ceremony,, at which the  Rev. Father Verbeke officiated,  was a very quieC one, only members of the famiiv being present.  Following the wedding the Couple  left for a honeymoon in Victoria.  Pte. Quinn, it will be remembered, recently came back from tha  trenches with a hand permanently  crippled from a rifle shot wound.  The bride waa on the staff of the  Bank of Montreal  JOHNSON-ASHTON  A wedding took - place Tueaday  afternoon, February 12th, at the  home of Rev. E. D.

The Hoarding of Food  Hoarding is one of the new  words of the war. It means storing  in excess of requirements, especially ot foods and fuel just at present. Now storing and laying up  a prudent supply for real needs is  not a crime in peace times; but the  man or woman who wilfully and  cooly decides today to store more  food than he or she would buy in  ordinary times is committing something that has the moral effect of a  crime. He is also helping to raise  the price to himself of future supplies.  There is no cause for panic  among the people of Canada. We  must expect to make some food  sacrifices and be willing to modify  our eating habits and even to eat  less in order that the soldiers and  our allies may be fed. There is a  world shottage of foods because,  so far as we in Canada are concerned, other people' have had to  be withdrawn from farms to fight  what is our joint fight. Our obvious duty is to aid them by at  least sending them as much food  as they used to get before they  took up our common task.  Hoarding is the crin e of selfishly taking care of one's own skin to  the detriment of others, either in  the warring lands or at home. Buying too much for immediate cellar-  packing in Canada also imposes a  burden on the poorer classes in  the Dominion. The railway difficulties are especially great this  winter���obstacles in distribution of  foodstuffs are adding to the shortage. Moreover, hoarding by people who lack proper facilities for  stortng may easily result in heavy  waste. For tiiia reason especially  public opinion should be aroused  against the practice.  It is a thing tha' comes down to  the sense of right in the buver. If  he or she knows what patriotism  means, knows what others have to  undergo only because they did not  happen to live in Canada, and in  whose place Canadians might have  been but for the accident of geography, there will be no hoarding  Public opinion and public disapprobation of hoarding may do  much to discourage the practice  but nothing can really be effective  unless the moral sense of buyers  of food tells them plainly when  they are laying in a legitimate store  or grabbing at an opportunity of  plenty for the chiel reason that  they have enough money to get it,  It is no wonder that under the stress  of war tension the British people  found for the man who attempted  hoarding the expressive title "Food  Hog."  There has been some hoarding  in Canada of sugar, flour and per  haps other commodities. The  practice fortunately is of small proportions and the effect of measures  now under consideration may re.  suit in the exposure ot the Cana-  " Food Hogs." Hoarding is unnecessary and unpatiiotic. The  better elements in the community  will refrain from it so far as their  own households are concerned and  will use their influence against it  elsewhere.  Often people will buy large  quantities of these foods without  thinking of the way in which they  may be depriving others. Every  patriotic Canadian will do well to  resolve that he will "play the  game" fairly with his neighbour,  and with thc poorer classes, by  purchasing food onlv in normal  quantities while the present emergency lasts.. and by discouraging  hoarding wherever he finds evidence of it.  Correspondence With  War Prisoners  Up to the present it has been  permissible to send letters destined for persons in an enemy country or a country in the occupation  of the enemy subject through the  medium of an intermediary in a.  neutral country. An arrangement  has now been made whereby such  correspondence can be forwarded  through the medium of Messrs.  Thos. Cook & Son, 530, St. Gather-  ine St., W., Montreal, in connection  with the authority received by  their London house from the British government to undertake the  transmission of such correspondence.  The letters to be forwarded  must relate only to private news  and must not contain any reference to military or naval movement., to political and economic  conditions or the like. The letter  should be enclosed in an envelope  egibly addressed to its ultimate  destination, and must be left open  in accordance with the censorship  regulations of enemy countries.  This should then be placed in  another envelope addressed to  Thos. Cooker Son, 530, St. Catherine St., Montreal, together with a  slip bearing, legibly written, the  name of the sender and also a  postal note lor 25c to cover the  charges.

PARADES: The combined troop  will parade at the club room on  Wednesday and Saturday, the 20th  and 23rd inst., at 7.15 and 2.15  p.m, respectively.  We wish to thank P.-L. James  Calder for a gift of 18 books lo  the library; Scout Groves for a further 6 books, and also Second  Ralph Weddell and Mr. Charles  Johnson for a gift of books. We  have now well over 70 books.  Our heartiest congratulations to  P.-L. Dick Parkinson who has now  completed his 84 hours of voluntary work for the War Service  Badge. P.-L. Parkinson has the  honor of being the first in our troop  to win this worthy badge and in  the years to come it will certainly  be a valuable decoration to hold.  We hope in the near future to  have a few more in the troop.  Commencing with this issue we  are publishing the first prize 1917  Camp Diarj. As promised, we do  not give the name of the winning1  scout. The diary writing was compulsory at camp but troop members were informed that while  their diaries might be published,  no names would be mentioned. In  this way we were probably able to  secure a much better account  There were several very good  diaries in addition to the one we  are publishing.  Cedar Creek Camp, Tuesday.���  After great lamentations and ges  ticulations, the Boy Scouts departed from the mighty ' yet beautiful  metropolis of Kelowna ih Mr. Hay-  man.s steam launch, accompanied  by a gasoline tug. The boats were  laden with all manner of articles  from a toothpick to a tent. Two  of these articles having fallen off  on the way, were rescued after a  daring piece of bravery by P.-L  Parkinson and two other scouts.  The ferry having left Kelowna  at about 10,30 arrived at Cedar  Creek somewhat later than 12.15.  By this time quite a big sea was  running before a wind from the  south, and the landing was accomplished under some difficulties and  ended in the scoutmaster getting  his feet wet. The scouts with their  usual energy set about erecting  tents, 'he patrol ones being left till  the last. The latter were only just  pitched before the storm (which  before had been a wind) suddenly  changed to blinding sheets of rain,  which although wetting the ground  did not dampen the spirits of the  scouts. This storm lasted till the  evening and cleared up just in time  to give the troop some good exercise in games, and in the evening  although the ground was rather  damp we had a fine camp fire and  yarn. After the camp fire the scouts  prepared for bed and "Lights out"  was sounded at 9.15. No guards.  Wednesday-Reveille was sounded at 6.30 and the scouts after a  not very satisfactory sleep (as it  was the first night) paraded for  washing and after for prayers.  This was followed by a call for  breakfast which was heartily responded to, the boys being hungry after their exertions of the previous day. (Editor's Note���One  would think they had gone without  supper I) After this came tent inspection in which the Wolves and  Beavers tied for - first, the Wolves  ultimately winning the flag for the  day in a toss-up. Then followed  the ordinary routine of a day in  camp, drill, physical torture, cleaning up, patrol instruction, dinner,  competitions, games, leave, bathing  and lastly camp fire and yarns.  The Beavers were guards, and  were called in at 10.15. The troop  retired at 9.15. The mail and provisions were brought in Mr. Mar-  halls car, which arrived about  8.30."

Treat carrying an excessive  amount of foliage art always tardy bearert  and seldom produce strong fruit spurs or  wall colored fruit in tha centre of tha tree.  Tha traa should be open enough to allow  the light to penetrata through from any  angle. This keeps tha interior dry, dis-  courages tha growth of fungut diseases,  aids the formation of fruit spurt in thi  centre of the tree, prevents tha formation  of long naked branches, and materially  aidt the ripening of tha fruit and fruit  budd.  BEARING HABITS  To a certain extent the bearing can be  regulated by tha pruning. Heavy winter  pruning upsets the balance of the tree and  inducea a rank wood growth the following  seaion, summer pruning when dona atthe  correct time tenda to check growth and encourage fruitfulncat. In an irrigated taction the tama results can ba obtained by  reducing tha moisture supply, towing cover  cropt and giving laat cultivation.

The correct time to summer  prune is just before terminal growth ceases,  On weak, slow growingtreetaaevere winter  pruning stimulates growth and aids tha  tree to set and mature itt fruit and fruit  buds. On strong growers a heavy pruning  would force the tree into a heavy rank  growth at the expense of fruit spur formation.

Heavy  pruning bef re a tight crop would bedan-  gerous and liable to throw tbe treea out of  bearing for two oi three yeara.  SIZE OF THE FRUIT  Trees to per form the maximum amount  of work must be capable of bearing large  eropt of normal size fruit. To do thit will  depend on a large extent on the pruning  and thinning of the tree, and each tree  will present a problem in ittelf. The tree  must be capable of maturing itt crop to  normal tize, making normal growth for  tha variety, and maturing its growth and  fruit budt for the next teason't crop. A  tree with a large number of fruit spurt  thould receive heavier pruning than ont)  not carrying to many buds. Thia will remove tome of the spurs, save thinning in  the summer, throw vigor into the tree,  and to a great extent eliminate danger of  undersized fruit. Where trees are making  a heavy wood growth and producing apples above normal tize, prune them  enough to keep the tree in a desirable  thape and allow the light to enter, and do  lets irrigating and cultivating. If it la  necessary tow the orchard down.  PRUNING THE YOUNG TREE  The first pruning of the yeung traa  commences at the time of planting. The  young tree aa it comes from the nursery  is either a straight whip or a tree with  branches coming out all the way up the  ���tern. In the case of the whip all that it  necessary it to cut back to twenty inches  or two feet above the ground. With the  branched tree, if the branches are coming  out in desirable places they may be uaed  for the permanent framework of the tree.  Select three or four of them that are well  distributed up , nd down and around the  stem and cut the remainder off. Cut these  back to from tix inches to a foot depend*  ing on tha strength of the branch.  Tha pruning at tha time of setting  should never be omitted. When the treea  are removed from the nursery a great deal  of the root system is destroyed and tha  top mutt be cut back in proportion or  drying out and the failure of the treea to  start may be the result.  The first year after setting the pruning  consists of selecting the main branches on  which to build the permanent framework  of the tree. Select from three to five  branchea well distributed around and up  and down the stem and a leader. Select  them ao that no two will be coming ont  from the stem at the aame height and cut  off all branchea forming a sharp angle with  tha stem. If a desirable head cannot be  obtained the firat year it will well repay  the grower to cut off all the branchea  forming undesirable crotchet, head the  tree baek and form the head the following-  season. If a tree ia examined it will be  found that the uppermost branchea on a  young shoot alwaya leave the main item  at a tharper angle than those lower down.  It is the lower branches leaving the tree  at a wide angle that should be used for  the foundation of the top.  The next year the pruning will consist  of thinning the top, leaving two or three  laterals on the branches selected the pre'  vioua year and cutting off one-third or one*  half the new growth. In selecting thete  lateral branchea the same precautions  thould ba uaed at in selecting, thoae ofthe  previous year.  The third and fourth year pruning will  be similar to the second. Remove all  branchea that are superfluous, cross branch*  es, diseased branchea, and thoae forming  bad crotches. Head in the new growth  about one-third.  The fifth year and following yeara the  pruning will consist of thinning out superfluous wood and cross branchea to keep  the tree symmetrical  In pruning bearing trees the variety*  kind of toil, method of cultivation, and  amount of water need will have to be considered. Pruning ia a very important factor in the production of first class fruit,  but mutt be consistent and in harmony  with the other orchard practices if the  belt results are to be obtained. Each tree  must be studied and pruned according to  what it ia doing. Excessive winter pruning  thorough cultivation end irrigating generally result in a rank wood growth and oversized poor quality fruit. On tne other  hand, on poor toil, where the cultivation  it not well done and tha pruning is light  the reault it generally a large.crop of undersized fruit. Under normal conditions  the pruning of bearing apple treea thould  consist of thinning out cross limbs and  superfluous wood to that plenty of light  and air can get through the tree to colour  and ripen the fruit. If the trees are making a poor growth and not maturing the  fruit to normal tize a severe winter pruning will sometimes remedy the difficulty.

A blearied tun, in a smoky tky,  The lake with a little chop;  A pavilion hung with bunting gay.  And a grandstand packed to the top.  A band had played, the people cheered  And applauded with much ado,  When the  starter  announced through a  megaphone tr  'The race for the War Canoe."  This clastic race���the day'a event���  Waa for silver cup and ahield,  And the Okanagan championship,  Ih a fair and open field.  So Peachland brought the beat the had,  And a valiant ahowing made ;-  Fifteen men wore the green and white.  To compete with the Fire Brigade.  For year by year these crewa had met.  To paddle in any weather;  With mutclea of silk and ateel combined.  And facet tanned like leather.  The visitors took the water firat.  Gliding awiftly out on the bay.  Mid cheering voice snd clapping hands,  That made the regatta gay.  Tha Kelowna launched the long brown  hull.  They had varnished and smoothed with  oil;  The paddles, too, were treated anew,  Till they'd make the water boil."  They   trimmed  her true, that splendid  crew.  Each knee-pad waa placed jutt to���  With Newby as stroke it wat no joke.  When Jenkint, the captain, said "Co."  AH set, up paddles, dip and away.  With a awing and easy reach;  Steering a courae for the starting flag,  At a buoy off Manhattan beach;  And at the point awing swift around  In a curve with eaae and grace;  And though itt a  mile, you 'watch and  smile.  As you see them jockey for place.  Now up, now back, now on the line  (There goes the puff of the gun) ;  A silence falls on the watching crowd���  They are off on the straight mile run.  On, on, they come, those thirty men  (On, Fire Brigade, look alive I),  The strangers are hitting ��� sixty clip,  While Kelowna doea fifty-five.  Dip, dip, dip,���what a stroke,  Spray flies from the bow like rain;  The captains yell, their muecles swell.  You wonder who'll break in the strain.  The paddles gleam, the women scream,���  Peachland-���Kelowna���come on���  Ohl do your bett in the awful test  Of wind and muscle and brawn.  And near the line, in record time,  Swing arms and shoulders and back;-;  They nosed them out bv half a length-  Three cheers for the yellow and black,  A blearied sun in a smoky sky,  The lake with a little swell.  A pavilion wild with excitement.  And the grandstand's raving yell.

Ths fact it also emphasized that all butter  in such packages must  be ofthe full net weight  of sixteen ounces, and  in default of same a  fine of from $10 to $30  for each offence is imposed. Whey butter  must be to labelled  even when mixed with  dairy butter, and dairy  butter retains its label  though it be mixed  with the creamery product.  You can be supplied  with neatly - printed  wrappers for your  butter at the Kelowna  Record Office, for the  following prices:  io(HsaarB$i.50  200  500  1000  V  2.00  3.15  4.50  These prices include Both the  Paper, which is the best obtainable  for the purpose, and the Printing  of same.    Please note this.  Owing to the extraordinary rise in tho price of butter  parchment (which haa gone, up over 100 per cent) we  have been reluctantly obliged to raise our prices slightly.  Nearly all thia paper waa previously manufactured in Belgium, and needless to say this supply haa been entirely  out 08. Unfortunately there is no guarantee against further increases, indeed, they are more than likely.  Kelowna Record  WW
