 .'  fKM.i!"  kCcWMJ  *%M0Vt>  VOL X.   NO. 15.  ''Mjhhii^'  KELOWNA" BrWfBFTcOLUMBlA, THURSDAY. FEBRUARY 28, 1918.-4 PACES  $1.50 Per Annum  Returned Soldiers Now  Folly Organized  Branch of Great War Veterans  Association Formed  At a meeting held Saturday evening last in the Board of Trade  room a Kelowna Branch of the  Great War Veteran* Association  was successfully launched. Although about 30 soldiers have up  to the present returned to the district, only about half this number  have as yet resumed permanent  residence here. Nevertheless, the  number is increasing every week  and the organization which has  been formed will all the sooner be  in working order for its early start.  Ita avowed objects are to watch  the interests of returning men, and  assist them in their efforts to secure  employment again in civil life. It  will also keep a fatherly eye upon  the families of all soldiers. It is  the intention as soon as possible,  to affiliate with the Dominion Association.  The officers fleeted were as fol-  fows: President, G. N. Kennedy;  first vice-pres., A Bingley ; second  vice-pres., J. C Andeison ; secretary-treasurer, Rae Ritchie. The  executive committee also includes  J. Symonds, G. Reith, J. Fisher. In  the temporary absence of Rae Ritchie, E. G. Aitken is acting as temporary aecretaiy.  The actual membership, of  course, is restricted to those who  have served overseas in the present war, but as associate members vetersns of other wars and  those who have been on home  service are to be admitted.  Raise More Hogs���But  Not od Tomatoes  Because a bunch of his hogs  persisted in trespassing on a crop  of tomatoes in which two Hindoos  were interested on a crop-sharing  contract, Mr. T. Bulman has to pay  damages amounting to $70 and  costs.  Suit was brought by Banta and  Gangs Singh for $130 which they  declared represented their share  of the loss sustained, the case occupying the attention of Judge  Swanson in the local courthouse  practically the whole of Monday  and Tuesday. Mr. Bulman not  only disputed the claim as excessive, but also counter claimed on  several different items including  neglect to irrigate, damage to trees  and loss by improper picking of  green tomatoes.  Mr. R. B. Kerr sppeared on behalf of the Hindoos while Mr. E.  Weddell represented Mr. Bulman's  side of the argument A large  number of witnesses were examined, The hearing, if long drawn out  was not without its amusing features, though at times heated accusations were bandied backwards  and forwards. The final result was  that the counter claims were disallowed, and the damage assessed  at $70 and coAs.  A son was born to Mr. and Mrs.  J. W. Bell on Sunday laat.  A. Bruynelle left yesterday to report for military service.  W. Patterson left Tuesday on s  visit to Calgary.  Miss Holt who has been undergoing an operation in the hospital  is reported to be doing well.  Mr, and Mrs. Chas. Quinn returned Saturday from their honeymoon  trip to the coast. Monday morning  Mr. Quinn who has now been per  manently discharged from the  army left for Toronto, where he is  to take up a course of piano tun  ing.  Irritated by the frequent trespassing of dogs in his garden Mr. D.  M. Erskinein an unguarded moment retaliated by firing a shot-gun  at one intruder,* which happened  to belong to Mr, R. Burns. The  latter resented this injury to his  favourite, and lodged a complaint  as a result of which yesterday Mr.  Erskine had to pay a fiue of $15  for injury to the dog and for firing  a gun within the city limits.  News of Neighbours  The city of Trail is offering  $71,400 in new debentures for  sale to pay for sewers, water works  and school additions.  Fernie's tax rate for 1918 has  been set at 38 mills.  There are 13.000 auto owners in  British Columbia.  Nelson merchsnts want to cut  out the credit system. They claim  that since the C.P.R. and the mining  companies are paying (wire a  month, thefe is no longer any need  of people aaking for credit.  Practically every Sunday train in  Canada, except the transcontinental  trains, have now been discontinued.  Public works expenditures in the  province for the fiscal year 1918-  1919 will be little short of two mil-  liondollaraif tbe Legislature accepts  the estimates which the works department has prepared.  The United Farmera of B.C. has  now 34 locals with a total membership of between 700 and 800. At  the first annual meeting held last  week in Victoria, the following  officers were elected for the ensuing  year: President, George Clark, Saa-  nich; vice-presidents, J. L. Pridham  and R. A, Copeland, Kelowna, and  W. Peterson, Koksilah.  The members of the Penticton  fire brigade have new uniforms and  the chief a raise in salary.  At a meeting of the Vemon City  Council, Mayor Shatford appointed  a committee to work with the food  production and conservation committee recently organized in ther  direction of seeing that so far as  possible all vacant city lots are  utilized for the production of vegetables this year.  Mr. J. Gibb, of Vernon, ia conducting fruit packing classes at  the coast. The enrolment is already over 50 and the idea seems  to have found great favor. Many  of the pupils are also asking to be  taught pruning and spraying.  The Summerland Telephone  Company is given three months in  which to replace a pole line of the  Okanagan Telephone Company in  Garnett Valley which they had tom  down and destroyed. Failing the  rebuilding of the line the Okanagan  Telephone -Company is to have  judgment for $570 damages, or  may reconstruct the line and charge  it up against the Summerland company. The above is the effect of a  lengthy judgment by Mr. Justice  Macdonald handed down in a suit  where rivalry between the companies over the right to the highway  in Garnett Valley had led to the  destruction of one line and finally  a lawsuit.  Washington Apples Turned  Back For Codlin Muth  Out of seven cars of Washington  apples which arrived in Vancouver  last week, no less than four were  condemned because the fruit was  found to be badly infected with  codling moth which apparently has  obtained a hold upon certain fruit  growing sections of the neighboring  state. British Columbia has been  kept comparatively free from this  pest, owing to the rigid regulations  enforced by the fruit inspector's  staff.  In the cars, which arrived from  the Toppenash and Cashmere Districts of Washington, the boxes  had codling moth cocoons on both  the inside and outside in large num-  hero. There were 3104 boxes con-  demned altogether. Importers express themselves as greatly surprised that ahippera should continue  to send infected apples across the  line as they have repeatedly been  condemned and in every case the  shippers have had to stand heavy  The British have captured Jerico  in Palestine. The city waa entered  by Australian troops Thursday  Little opposition was encountered  Subsequently the Australians established themselves on the line of  the Jordan and the Wadi Auja.  Premier Brewster is  IU Itt Pneumonia  Taken from Train to Hospital  at Calgary During Return  from Ottawa  On his return journey from the  conference of provincial premiers  at Ottawa, Premier Brewster was  discovered to be suffering from  pneumonia, and had to be removed  from the train at Calgary and placed  in hospital there. Although both  Jungs are affected and his condition  ia serious, latest dispatches state  that the premier is progressing  favorably, and that little doubt is  entertained as to his recovery.  '  With ordinary progress it will be  from three to four weeks before  the patient will be able to leave  hospital and travel home and fully  six weeks before Mr. Brewster will  be in a condition to pursue hia  duties at the legislative buildings.  It has been decided by the executive that the Legislature will  resume its sessions which were adjourned to permit the premier to  visit Ottawa Hon. John Oliver will  lead the House in the absence of  the Premier and the session should  end, it ia expected, about the end  of March.  Col. Repington, military critic of  the Morning Post, was fined five  hundred dollars and costs for  publishing an article on the Versailles conference in defiance of  the censor. The post was similarly  fined.  The farmers in the Canadian  corps are cultivating land almost  in the area of the desperate fighting at Vimy last spring. The men  are vieing with one another in cultivating vegetable gardena. The  corps now has over 100 acres  split up into little plots and scattered here and there around the  whole area.  A crank with a genius for mathematics figures out that the total  cost incurred in killing a German  soldier amounts to $15,000.  Home on Leave After  Three Years of War  Okanagan   Centre   Reservist  Left Everything to Rejoin  Imperial Forces  Another veteran of the war came  in to Kelowna Tuesday in the person of C. L. Watts, who i* home  on leave after a long spell of three  years with the Imperial forces.  Pte. Watts waa a rancher with a  place near Okanagan Centre when  the war broke out, and as a reservist he was one of the first to be  called out. He disposed of his  (arm there and left as soon as possible to join his regiment. His  wile and little baby in the meantime moved down to Kelowna  where they have been residing  since.  . Private Watts has seen some  heavy service, and bears several  medals which have been hardly  won. He has been wounded twice  but considering the fighting he has  been in, he has every reason to  congratulate himself. For -some  time past he has served with a  mounted machine gun corps, one  of-the most hazardous branches'of  the service.  On the strength of his three  years service he has obtained a  leave of two months, and has paid  his own fare over to Canada to  visit his family. When his tew  weeks of grace are up he must  af-nin leave for the front.  Announcement ia made of a  special grant of a million dollars to  McGill University by the Carnegie  Corporation in recognition of Mc-  Gill's service and sacrifice toward  Canada's part in the war for freedom and aa evidence of appreciation and sympathy for Canada on  the part of the American allies.  si he ladies of theK.L.O. benches  are busy at present with Red X  work, holding weekly meetings at  lhe home of Mrs. Pooley. Their  work is adding considerably to the  total of articles sent from this district.  Some Notes on Fire Blight  By BEN HOY, District Horticulturist  Between now and bloiaoming time  every effort ahould be [made to cut out  and burn all hold over canker* in the district. The cerm (Baccillue Amylovoroua)  causing fire blight ia carried through the  ���winter in these hold-over cankers. In the  spring as soon as the sap begins to run a  gummy exudate, swarming with the baccillue, comes from these cankers. Insects  crawling and flying about get this exudate  on their bodies and if the tree is in bloom  curry the disease to the blossoms, from  which it is spread from one blossom to  another by bees, wasps and other insects.  From the 'blossoms it may spread to any  other part of tha tree. If all hold-over  cankeis are found, cut out and burned,  there will be no germs in the district and  with no germs there cannot be any blight.  Soma of the losses caused by blight are:  1. Each year a large percentage of tha  blossoms are killed, materially reducing  tha size of the crop.  2. Valuable trees are killed and have  to be removed.  3. Many trees have a large percentage  of their bearing area killed.  4. Small undersized fruit is cften the  result of blight in the roots.  5. A great deal of time and labor is  required to fight blight each year.  With more thorough work during the  dormant season a large percentage of this  loss can be provented. Nothing should  be left undone between now and blossoming time to get every canker in the district. The germs exist in the dormant  season, only in the cankers, tf all cankers  are cut out and bumed. the disease is  wiped out.     ���  BOW  TO   CUT IN TBE DORMANT  SEASON  In removing small twigs, and branches,  cut at least three inches below the line of  demarkstion between the healthy and the  diseased tissue: Disinfect cuts and knife  with corrosive sublimate I to 1,000.  Where cankers are on small branches,  up to J to 1 inch in diameter, cut off the  branch below the canker. In order te cut  the bark far enough away from the canker on branches of this size, it is usually  necessary to practically girdle the branch  and render it useless.  Cankers on large limbs can be taken  Rutland News  A meeting of the United Farmers will be held on Monday, March  4th, in the Rutland schoolhouse,  when Ben Hoy will speak on the  subject of Fertilizers. The remainder of the evening will be taken  up in discussing the problem of  labor and crop shortage. Members' of other loca's are urged to  come and take part in the discussion.  Pte. "Bud" Fitzpatrick* came  home Saturday from Vancouver  on final leave before going with  his draft ovftrseaa. Mrs. W. McDonald gave a party in hia honor  on Wednesday night.  The Girls Enterprise Club will  meet at the home of Mra. S. Gray  on Tuesday evening, March 5th.  Last Friday the Young People'a  Society gave a concert in aid of  the Prisoners of War. Mr. Wanless  president of the Society, waa in  the chair. The programme rendered was very good indeed and  numerous encores showed that the  audience appreciated the talent of  the performers. Over $20 was  raised for the Fund.  The Mount View Ladies' Aid  will meet at Mrs. W. McDonald's  Friday (to-morrow).  Mr. G. Sehell returned Tuesday  from his long visit to New York  State.  Three Rutland gentlemen have  acted in a very public-spirited way  with their commissions for the sale  of Victory Bonds, Mr. Bond handing his to the Red Cross, Mr. Hardie dividing hia between the Red  Cross and Patriotic Fund, and Mr.  S. Gray donating his to the Red  Cross.and Y.M.C.A.  Famous Player Feature  out sad the limb saved by cutting th.  bark sway to the sap wood. Always cut  the bark away at least two inches above  and below the infection and st least one  inch at the sides, making sure that you  are back to sound tissue. Disinfect the  wound with corrosive sublimate.  When cutting aw.y diseased water  sprout, and suckers from the base of the  Ires dig down and make sure that the infection i. not on the root also.  In csm of fruit .purs, twigs, water  sprouts, Ate, being- infected all the way to  ths base, but apparently not into the limb,  cut aw.y the bark around the base and  disinfect wall, .0 th.t there is no danger  of leaving any of the germs to carry the  disease over.  Cankers on the root, are treated the  same a. those above the ground.  In cutting out branches in ths top. of  old tree, avoid leaving .tubs. Even if it  is necessary to cut back another foot or  ao, it ia better to bring the tree beck to a  lateral branch. This will tend to keep the  tree in better .haps and prevent sucker  growth,  CORROSIVE SUBLIMATE  Corrosive sublimate can bs bought at  any drug store, and the drugguet will give  direction. .. to the number of tablet.  necessary and amount of wster to use to  make up a mixture of on. to one thousand.  There are many place, where the tree.  are only t> side line and .re given little  thought or care, and either no effort st .11  ia made by the owner to locate blight or  only . very superficial examination ia  made. It"is true many of these trees are  of little value, but any tree that i. worth  keeping on the pl.ee ia worth the effort  to keep it free from disease. If it is not  -worth this pull it out and burn it, for with  the scarcity of potash, wood ashe. are  very. valuable aa a fertilizer, beside.,  waating valuable land in keeping tree,  that .re not worth carina; for. Tree, carrying hold-over canker, are a menses to  th. whole fruit-growing community, and  any man who dooa not make every effort  to get them out ia a decided detriment to  the fruit growing industry and to the welfare of his diarrict.  There are many laughs, a tear  or two and an abundance of tense  dramatic moments in little Ann  Pennington's latest screen vehicle,  "The Little Boy Scout," a Famous  Players- Paramount picture directed by Francis J. Grandon, There  is also an entertaining love story,  woven through the plot and of  course a Pennington picture would  not be complete without dancing  in it. In fact the love storv begins  with the dancing when the little  "Senorita" trips her way into the  heart of young Lieutenant Morton  who���but that ia part of the story  which you will see for yourself at  the Kelowna Theatre on Tuesday  of next week.  Mr. J. T. Fallis left yesterday on  a visit to regina.  Mr. M. D. Ross, the assistant  manager of the Royal Bank, has  been busy during the past few days  taking leave of hia many friends in  Kelowna, having received a somewhat unexpected promotion for  duty elsewhere, - He is to act for  the present as relieving manager  of the branch at Ladner, and as is  usual will no doubt act in a similar  capacity at various places until he  is finally assigned permanent  charge of a branch. It ia safe to  say that wherever Mr. Ross goes  he will prove an efficient officer,  and if his popularity is anything  like it has been in Kelowna, he  will be all right. Here's good  luck>  The Kelowns people are circnlat  ing the following petition, copies of  which have been sent to the various  towns throughout the district, With  a view to forming a strong association : "We the undersigned mem.  bers of the White Labor Association, promise that we will not hire  Asiatic labor at a greater wage than  $1.25 a day ; neither ahall we rent,  lease or sell land to Asiatics." The  above to take effect on the first day  of March. 1908.���Penticton Herald  of ten years ago.  The P.G.E. agreement between  tlie Provincial Government and  Foley, Welch fit Stewart, by which  the contractors arrange to pav the  government $1,100,000 and are  released from their obligations to  finish the road, was signed at  Seattle on Saturday night  Hoy Volunteers as  "Soldiers of (lie Soil"  Food Board Inaugurates New  Movement for Boosting of  Food Production  The organization of the " Soldiers of the Soil" movement, inaugurated by lha Canada Food  Board is now practically complete,  and work will be commenced at  an early date to enlist 25,000 boy  volunteers to assist in food production on farms this year.  Actual enrolment will begin on  March 17, and the following week  will be "Soldiers of the Soil Enrollment week" throughout Canada.  In towns of under 10,000 population, high school teachers and bank  managers will act as enrollment  ment officers. In Isrge centres,  high school teachere, Y.M.C.A.  secretaries, together with officers  of the Boy Scouts and sinilar organizationa, will enroll the recruits.  Arrangements have been made  with the department of education  in the several provinces, so that  boya who enlist for this work will  not lose their school standing.  Every boy who gives three months  of satisfactory service on the farm  will be given a bronze national  honor badge. In addition, he will  be paid regular wages, based upon  the amount of work he is capable  of doing.  The departments of agriculture  in the various provinces will provide machinery for placing the  boya on the farms so that farmers  ho can use one or more boys  should notify their provincial departments of their requirements at  an early date.  Food Board Urging  Dominion Wide Movement ia  Being Launched  A Dominion-wide vacant lot and  home garden cultivation movement  has been inaugurated by the Canada Food Board. Ita organization  haa been placed in the hands of  Fred Abram, who was chairman  of the vacant lots committee in  Montreal, where it is estimated  that produce exceeding $100,000  in value waa grown last summer.  It is the board's idea to extend this  movement in places where an organization exists and to create new  ones in unorganized fields.  Only the growth of vegetables  high in food value will be encouraged, such as potatoes, beans, pees,  beets, carrots, lettuce, onions, parsnips, ficc.  Soldiers Vote Increases  Unionist Majority  The official soldiers' and naval  vote taken in France, Canada and  the U.S.A., haa increased the majority of the Unionist government  in Parliament to sixty. It was 45  when the civilian home vote was  counted. The standing of the government and opposition by provinces is as follows:  Prince Ed.

A noticeable feature of the newspapers ju9t now is the prevalence  of the most alluring advertisements  hy enterprising boose merchants,  who are doing all in their po.ver  to induce the public to lay in storks  of various kinds ol liquid refreshment against the coming in nf  Dominion-wide prohibition on lhe  1st of April. If one is to judge by  the number of cases and kegs coming into Kelowna, they must be  doing a land office business. Il is  probable that other places contain  just as many thirsty people as Kelowna, and it must be taxing the  capacity of some ol these firms lo  fill orders.  It would b* difficult now to arrive at any figures as to the normal  consumption here, but^someone  ately hazarded the opinion that  there was more boose in Kelowna  now than ever before in its history.  Whether this is so or not theie are  certainly some pretty extensive  shipments coming in. As the price  of the better brands of spirits has  been aviating, it would be interesting to know the amount of money  which has been put into this cellar  stocking.' Stories are being told of  individuals who have invested as  much as five or six hundred dollars.  This temt orary boom in the  liquor business is being taken advantage of not only by the regular  established firms but a host of new  concerns have sprung up to he'p  reap the harvest. Some of these  are apparently pure fakes who are  figuring on making a haul, and  when the fateful day arrives they  will probably stick up the appropriate sign "April Fool," and told  up their tents like the Arabs and  silently steal awav.  The experience of one Kelowna  gentleman should be a warning to  others. Some time ago he sent  away.au order to a firm in Albetta  with a high-soundihg name, for  fifty dollars' worth of brandy, specifying a well-known make and  enclosing the cash. ' He had to  write several times getting evasive  replies about substituting other  brands, and eventually got word  that the stuff was being shipped.  It did not arrive, however, and  after further unsatisfactory correspondence the lawyers were set to  work, and found that beyond  pocketing the monev nothing had  been done. Yielding to threats,  the money waa finally returned,  minus a conaiderable slice for  lawyer's fees.  Orders have been received by  the registrar under the Military  Service Act to the effect that not  one man in the province in class  one who should, under the regulations, be in khaki should be overlooked, and that the government  is not satisfied that all the men who  are available for service under this  class have been secured. Similar  instructions have been sent to the  registrars in other provinces and  all exemption claims will again be  gone over carefully, many men will  be re-examined by the authorities  and the province will be combed  for those who have evaded t> gh-'a-  tion so far or failed to report when  ordered.

The ma.ch past was  carried out superbly, thanks to our  scout master, who gave out hia orders in such a thrilling voice that  we could not make a mistake. We  had a camp fire in the evening and  afterwards a big feed in our tent  The Beavers were the guarda for  the day and weie called in at 9.45.  Monday, reveille at 5.45. Preparations for departure to the  railway. At 8.35 eighteen acouta  left camp for the K.V.R. Commis-  missioner Heneage remained behind in charge of the remainder of  the camp. Ideal weather for mountaineering. vVe arrived at the railway at about 12.15. We immediately set about unpacking and  took a well-earned rest. Soon  after we arrived an east-bound  freight went bv amid the cheers of  eighteen lust) scouts. After lunch  we went for a walk along the track  to Little Penticton Lake, and all  thoae who did npt mind a lew  leeches and worms went in for a  swim and came out a good deal  dirtier than when they went in.  After supper we went for mother  walk along the track in an eastward  direction and enjoyed a splendid  view of Kelowna. After supper  we had been alarmed by the cry  of "Bear I Bear 1" and rushed into  the woods. We came upon a kind  of cave from which issued some  of the most terrifying growls we  had ever heard. Mr. Cameron  armed with an axe climbed upon  the opening and stood ready for  the beast. Our brave and noble  scout master dashed behind the  cave and began to poke the beast  from behind while we pelted the  doorway with rocks. Every time  we threw a rock there would be a  fearful growl and the scouts would  get Teady to run. and when at last  we were tired of pitching rocks  who should come out but Scout  Thomas Taylor. Rather sore at  having been fooled we turned to  go, and it was not till then that we  noticed one thin pine tree shaking  so much that it was nearly falling  down. On looking to see what  was the cause of this we perceived  high  up   in  the branches  Loans for Soldier  Landowners  Apart altogether from the land  settlement scheme now being  drawn up by the recently appointed commission, the Federal Government is going to assist returned  soldiers who at present own land  ready for cultivation, and are anxious to swell the army of food producers by loaning them $500,000  to assist them in their efforts.  Application forms to be forwarded to Ottawa for the loan will be  handed to all such soldier landowners.        ��� v  Annual Meeting of 0k.  Telephone Co.  The annual meeting of the Okanagan Telephone Company, was  held on the 20th of February at  the head t ffice of the company,  New Westminster, B.C.  While the business shows an improvement over that of 1916 (and  1916 was an improvement over  the disastrous year of 1915), yet  the net earnings of the company  barely show reaaonable depreciation. It was pointed out by its  officials that the company since its  acquisition of the interests of the  Okanagan Telephone Co., Ltd., in  910, haa rebuilt all exchanges  and added over 300 miles of rural  ines to the system. It haa doubled  and quadrupled the services in all  exchanges and is now giving a  continuous local and long distance  service. It has met lhe increased  cost of labor and material, which  has been from 20 to 35 per cent,  in the different branches of labor  and from 100 to 300 per cent, in  materials. The company, during  its eight years of business, with its  constant improvement in the service, has never raised a rate beyond  that charged by (he original company.  A dividend of four per cent.  was declared on the paid up stock  of $400,500, leaving $3669.63 to  reserve on a plant investment of  $446,257.86.

Prior to 1917 very little fruit  and vegetable seed waa grown in  British Columbia. A number of  farmers, market gardenera, Sec,  produced each year Sufficient seed  of e more common crops to supply their own requirements, but  not sufficient to allow them to place  any considerable quantity on the  market. Inexperience on lhe part  of the grower and the prevailing  scarcity of cheap labor militated  against the establishment of this  industry on a permantnt basis.  During the past few months,  however, a aerious world seed  shortage has developed and it is  predicted lhat the shortage will be  even more acute in 1919, The  suitability of the climate of this  province to the growing of seed  has been recognised for some time  but the prevailing high pric :s now  paid for seed of all kinds are such  as to make seed-growing a remunerative undertaking, even for the  inexperienced.  The wholesale seed houses have  turned to Britiah Columbia for a  supply of seed for 1919 and 1920.  They are prepared to place contracts for the growing of seed wilh  the B.C. farmera. They look to'  B C. for thousanda of pounds of  seed of the more common root  and vegetable aeeds, including  mangels, turnips, carrots, beets,  rape, radishes, parsnips, onions,  cabbage, celery, lettuce, peas and  beans. The seed houses supply  the stock seed from which the  seed crop is to be grown; they  supply sacks and pay all freight  on seed. This is an opportunity  which the farmers of the province  hould not fail tb grasp. It ahould  enable them to establish the seed  industry in this province at a per-  manent basis. The seed industry  involves the use of special machin  ery, the passing of special legiala  tion ; and if seed that will be a  credit to the proviuce is to be  marketed it will involve an educational campaign and the collection  and distribution of all available  information on seed growing.  A number of prominent Vancouver Island seed growers have  organized a B.C. Seed Growera'  Association which aims to further  the interests of seed growers  throughout the province. Any  farmer or gardener interested, in  seed growing should write at once  to the secretary of- the B.C. Seed  Growers' Association, Parliament  Buildings, Victoria, B.C., for further information. The Association  is in a position to bring- prospective seed growers into touch with  those who are handling'the seed  contracts. Prompt action is necessary if all the seed contracts available are to be placed in B.G this  year.  The KELOWNA THEATRE  Saturday (March 2)���William Fox Drama and a two-reel Fox  Comedy.

Rainier Cereal Beverage is a finished  product, having really been brewed and  converted into beer and after having been  completed it has been de-alcoholized or in  other words the alcohol has .been extracted  from it so that it is still a finished product  but entirely devoid of alcohol.  It is not only non-intoxicating but it is  non-alcoholic. It is not only a drink but it is  a beverage.  Beer drinkers like it and so do people  not accustomed to beer or other alcoholic'  drinks.  RAINIER CEREAL BEVERAGE is a Real Beverage  20 cents per bottle; 3 bottles for 50 cents.

Tha fact is. also emphasized thai all butter  in such package. mu.t  ba of ths full net weight  of aixteon ounces, and  in default of ami ���  fine of from $10 to $30  for each offence is im-  poasd. Whey butter  must be so Ubell.d  even when mixed with  dairy butter, and dairy  butter retains its label  though it be mixed  with th. creamery product.  You can be supplied  with neatly - printed  wrappers for your  butter atthe Kelowna  Record Office, for the  following prices:  100^ATSaJSBB,o-$ 1.50  200   ���    ,,     2.00  500   ,,    ,,     3.15  1000 .,,,  ,,    4.50  These prices include Both the  Paper, which it the beat obtainable  far the purpose, and the Printing  of same.   Please note this.  Owing to the extraordinary rise in the price of butter  parchment (which has gone up over 100 per cent) we  have been reluctantly obliged to raise our prices slightly.  Nearly al! this paper was previously manufactured in Belgium, and needless to say this supply has been entirely  cut off. Unfortunately there is no guarantee against further increases, indeed, they are more than likely.  Kelowna Record  a   n sn, .u n
