(Vtees oar ns CorrBuDorjdsni.l  We are glad to hear that Leiut.  R. A. D. Ramsay is progressing  favourably, since being wounded  some months ago. It was feared  that he would have to lose his leg,  which danger is we hear now post.  He is to return home on leave as  soon as able to do so.  Capt. Mutrie and Leiut. Seeley  and Logan have just returned tu  Vernon after a very successful  hunting expedition. They had In  go a considerable distance back  before they found the game. But  six bucks formed, a good bag  nevertheless.  After two year? at the front Mr.  Lionel Semerset is at home again.  During the last few weeks,he lias  visited many 01 his friends, and  lias some thrilling experiences to  relate, with many wonderful  escapes, when in the fighting area.  Most of lhe earlier part ofthe time  pas spent in transport wotk. He  has lost two brothers in Francr,  one of them being Tpr. Barnard  Somerset killed in the trenches by  machine gun fire. The other being  Leiut. Francis Somerset, who died  in the thick* ot the fight in a captured German trench.

Coventry.  .The girls club gave  their presi  dent,   Miss Jennie Clever   a   6ur-  Germany has made to the  Entente a formal aud definite proposal to discuss trims ef peace.  The proposal was made through  the representatives in Berlin of the  United States, Spain and Switzerland, who were received, one at a  time, by Chancellor von Bethmann-  Hollwegand given a note which  they were asked to transmit to the  governments of the Entente Powers  In the note Germany announces  her intention of. entering forwith  into peace negotiations, and her  willingness to suggest propositions  which, those in authority believe,  will be appropriate fpr the establishment of a lasting peace. The  governments arVienna, Constantinople and Sofia have submitted  indentical notes and have also  communicated with thc the Holy  See. ' y-  ��� Germany's peace terms in general measure propose the restoration of-the status quo, before the  wa' with the exception of the establishment of independent kingdoms  of Poland and Lithunia. They are  understood to propose the complete restoration of the occupied  portion of Belgium and France in  return for Germany's captured  colonies, and to dispose of the  Balkan situation because of its  extremeby complicated nature, in  the peace conference.  The note concludes with the  statement that, shonld the terms  not be accepted by the Allies,  Gerrnnny disclaims any responsibility for the continuancy of the  war.  The offer haa been received in  Britain, France, and also in America, with much derision, and is regarded as merely a ruse to take  advantage of the temporary gains  made in Roumania to save themselves from inevitable disaster.  The Westminister Gazette says:  It is to neutrals rather than to us  that Germany is appealing, therefore we must be careful not to be  manoeuvred onto the ground where'  we will seem in wrong.

We have reallv  no authority fo-: saying it. and  may pet into trouble, but Mrs.  Calder's name has been freely  mentioned as the likely nominee  and really, when you come to  think of it, it would be difficult  to lind a better���male or female.  There are many good reasons  why some level-headed woman  should take an interest i,i . the  work of the public s:ajo;,., and  we confess we would like to SO*  iUrs^ Calder on the- Board.  Many people have forgotten.  perhaps, the recent legislation  passed by the provincial house  providing for a weekly half-holiday. The fact that Kelowna  nad already enjoyed that privilege for some time perhaps  caused less interest to be taken  in the matter here. There is  one provision in -the Act, however, which demands attention,  as it will be necessary to lake  a vote of the ratepayers upon it  at the time of the municipal  election: that is, the day upon  which the holiday shall fall.  The choice in Kelowna apparently rests between Thursday and  Saturday. .  .  In the coast cities, where the  voting has already taken place,  the choice fell by overwhelming  majorities upon Saturday afternoon, notwithstanding that the  merchants conducted an active  campaign against it. So far as  can be judged from the lone of  various discussions which have  been held in the smaller interior,  towns, there is an equally  strong feeling in these places for  the weekend holiday.  There can be no-doubt that  the mid-week holiday, as a holi-  iday is almost a failure, and is  tolerated only by the store clerk  and the working man generally  in the absence of something better. The opposition to the Saturday holiday holiday comes almost entirely from the merchants, who are not unnaturally  anxious about the effect upon  their trade of interference with  what has always been regaiJcd  as theirIbest shopping day. The  Saturday half-holiday is not a  new .thing with retail stores bv  anv means, and it would be interesting to know the experience  of those who had tried it just  how it worked out in that respect. Probably the loss of  business notion is not borne out  bv 'facts> anywav. Recompense  is made'in the Act for the loss  of Saturday evening, should  that day be chosen, by an arrangement to open Friday evening.   . o���-    '  It is announced that vice-admiral DuFonrnet, commander of the  allied squadron in Greek waters,  has   been   replaced   by   Admiral  Caucher.  judge Forjn last Thursday granted William Hunter, Conservative  candidate in Slocan riding, a recount.

Thc annual meeting of the  Local Association was held on  Monday evening last, with the  usual slim attendance. A very  good selection of officers and  committee members was made,  however, all. men wno have the  interests of the movement very  much at heart. Mr. DuMoulin  was reelected president, #nd Mr.  h. E. Taylor and Mr. G. S. Mc  Kenzie vice, presidents, with  Messrs.! W.: J. Mantle, W. A.  Cameron, F. W. Groves, the  Ven. Archdeacon Greene, the  Rev. D. E. Braden, and the  Scoutmasters as committee  members. Votes of thanks were  passed to all those ladies and  gentlemen who so kindly acted  as examiners for badges during  the year, aud all those who assisted in making the Camp such  a success, particularly Messrs.  Lloyd-Jones, Mantle, and Cameron;    to the local papers    for  their kindness in publishing the  Scout Column each week, and  and to Scoutmaster Thomas,  now of Seymour Troop, Vancouver, for his services to tne  Troop while in Kelowna. Mr.  Thomas' warrant was also en-  dorsed for transfer to the Vancouver Troop. Mr. J. Gordon  was formally nominated to the  position of Cub Master,'and Mr.  Keown to that of Assistant  Scout Master.  The new rules as to repassing  Tenderfoot and Second Class  Tests and concerning "Slackers'  were approved and confirmed by  the meeting.  A hearty vote of thanks was  also given to the Kelowna boys  of "C" Company, 172nd Battalion, for presenting a fine tent  to tho local Troop. We re-  received this present just a few  days after thc 172nd leftVernon.  Itwas a very thoughtful and  kind act of the Kelowna boys to  remember the Troop in this  way. We imagine there will be  very great rivalry for the privilege of having this particular  tent at camp.  The collection of camp photo-  graphs which we , re sendiug to  H.R.H. the Duke of Connaught,  late Chief Scout for Canada,  have now been mounted in 1  little book, and ill' meivhcrs of  the Troop who wish to seethes*  pictures will have until the end  of the year to do so. The pictures can be seen at any time  at S. M. Weddell's office.  One of our leaders suggested  the other day that if only o.ur  aims were a little better known  there would be far more interest  shown im the, Scout movement,  and he asked why we did not  publish them. We understood  that our aims were pretty well  known in Kelowna, but they  are sometimes likely to be forgotten or confused, so we publish them again.  Rule 1 of the official rules  deals with our aims, and is as  follows: "The aim of the Association is to develope good citizenship among,boys by forming  their character���training them  in habits of observation, obeli-  ence, andself-reliance���indenting loyalty and thougtfulness  for others���teaching them set-  vices   useful to the public   and  Too Many Higher Canadian  Officers  It has been stated at Ottawa  that no distinction is to be  made in England between members of parliament and. other  officers in connection with the  working out of the plan to reduce the number of "iinemployed  officers of higher rank now over  seas.  Anv ollicer of higher rank,  whether a member ofparliaineut  or not, who will not revert to  the rank of lieutenant in order  to get to thc front, and whose  services <an not be utilized in a  military capacity in England or  France, must resume civilian  life. Zhis is in accordance with  the policv of tho department as  announced some time ago by Mr  F. B. MeCurdy.  Mr. Price Ellison, of Vernon,  Minister of Finance in the McBride  administration, and member for  the Okanagan in the Legislature  for many years, has made an assignment of all his personal property,  real estate, ciedits and effects to  T.

B. ���Unauthorized  publication* of  this advertisement will not be paid 'or  Municipal Fire Survey  Many fire chiefs have instituted  municipal surveys so that those responsible for the protection of bur  towns and cities may he better fit  ted to cope with any outbreaks of  fire. Excellent results have been  secured, from the* standpoint of  huh lhe public and the fire departments. The inspections revealed  many dangerous fire conditions,  w hicli the lay mind had passed unnoticed. The majority of cases requited only that the attention of  the owner or occupant of the building be called to the unnecessary  risk to secure its removal.  Fire Chief James Smart, of Cal-  8'>ry.Shas recently undertaken a fire  survey of that city, and apparently  with great success, as is shown by  his report of progress. Chief  Smart says:  The survey of fire conditions in  Calgary is about completed and I  Have every reason to feel that much  has been accomplishes in reducing  lhe fire hazard.  "Our method of procedure was  to have every building and premises inspected by the captain of the  fire station covering the district.  Instructions were givrn to note special information that might be  helpful in preventing or putting  out fire, to note thc conditions of  chimneys and pipes, method of  i tieating, feul used, disposal of  i ashes and especially accumulation  ol inflammable rubbish in basements or yards. In addition, of  I course, the names of owner and  occupant and shoit description of  each building with its street and  number.  "As the survey proceeded  notices were sent to premises  j where conditions were reported  I dangerous, and where the captain  had pointed out the required  remedy, lam glad to say that in  every instance so far the citizens  have heartily co-operated in the  work.  "An added value of the survey  is that each captain is more familiar with tl.e lay of the premises  in which he may be called upon to  combat fire.

Printed Butter  Wrappers  According to the new  Dominion Government  regulations all farmers  who sell butter either  to the stores or privately, are required to have  it properly covered in  a wrapper on which  MUST appear in prominent letters the words  "DAIRY BUTTER."  The fact is also em-  phasized thnt all butter  in such packages must  be ofthe full net weight  of sixteen ounces, and  in default of name a  line of from $10 to $30  for each offence is imposed. Whey butter  must be so labelled  even when mixed with  dairy butter, and dairy  butter retains [ti 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:  1 nfiPAPEK * PWNTtNC  I UU       INCLUDED  200  500  1000  )*    ii  ���i    ���>  $1.50  2.00  3.15  4.50  These prices include Both the  Paper, which is the best obtainable  for the purpose, and the Prinling  of same.

Thia card  will have printed on it a number  of questions regarding national  service and must be filled in and  returned by all men between the  iges of 16 and 65.  The questions are as follows :  1. What is your name?  2. How old are you ?'  3. Where do you live ? Province ?  4. Name of city, towft, village  or post office, street, number.  5. What country were you  horn in ?  6. In what country was your  father born ?  7. In what country was your  mother born )  8. Were you born a British  subject ?  9. If not, are you naturalized ?  10.    How much   lime  have  you  lost in last   12  months  from sickness } ' ���  I I.    Have you full use  arms?  12. Of your legs?  13. Of your sight.  14.

Two million of these cards will  he issued and it is understood  that the services of Canadian  postmasters will be requisitioned  to issue them.  lhe object is to secure an accurate inventory of the number of  men available for the vital industries, such as agriculture and muni  tions manufacture.  There is nothing in the cards  which can be interpreted as showing a move towards conscription,  but of course the number of men  of military age available for recruiting will be ascertained.
