Philip  Stocks at Nation  Was Resident of Belgium when  War Began  , On Monday midnight there paMed  away at Nahun an interesting figure  in tho person of the Bev. Philip Stoeks  MiA., for some time resident in Kelowna. The deceased gentleman, who  had reached the age ol 61, has been  ailing more or lese ever since his  arrival in Kolowna about a year and  a half) ago, with an affection oi the  heart, and though a little better during the past winter, he became worse  with the spring and for lome weeks  had been failing so rapidly that it  won well recognized that the end  oould not be far off. He -was visited  by tbe doctor from time to time, but  no hope was entertained of his recovery.  The interment took place, in accordance with his last wishes, in a grave  dug, on the beautiful hillside just above  his son's residence on the ranch at  Nahun, only the family being present  at the ceremony.  Deceased was educated at the City  of London Sohool and Hertford College, Oxford, and ordained to the ministry of the Church of England in  1883 From ehat time on he was  successively rector of Great Bowden,  Moestershire; vioar of Ketton, Rutlandshire, nnd rector and Kural Dean  of Ridlington, in the same county.  Prom 1917 to 191* he was vicar of  Twickenham, London, and from then  to the time of his coming to the Okanagan he was chapHan of the Errglis(i  East English Coast  Three airships raided the east coast  of England a few days ago. Thirty  two bombs were dropped in Lincolnshire and Norfolk. Then was no  material damage anfl no casualties,  many other bombs are reported to  hoVe fallen into the sea. At one  place anti-aircraft guns were in action  and succeeded in driving off the airships from their objective. The raiders  appeared to have been greatly hamp  ered by fog.   o   An unsuccessful attempt was made  recently to assassinate Count 'Htm,  the Hungarian Premier, according to  a .report from Budapest.  Church ol the Resurrection, BrussellD,  Belgium. It was whilst on a holiday  from the latter place that the war  broke out, and he was unable to return. He was broken in health at  the time, and the excitement of the  events of that memorable August had  the .worst effect upon him.- He set  out with his wife for Kelowna where  his family had been resident for some  time, and after living here for a  while went to join his son on his  ranch near Nahun. It might be mentioned that the contents ot his house  in Brussells, which of course is under-  German occupation, hare been takon  care of through the instrumentality of  the American Consul, and can possibly  be recovered after the war.  He leaves a widow and family ol  three sons and two daughters, all of  whom with the exception of one son,  who is with the British forces in  Egypt, reside in the neighborhood.  Pictures From Cedar Creek Camp  The writerispent some days with the  Boy Scouts .in their camp at Cedar  Creek. The details of that camp hav0  been well set before you, but I should  like to present a few pictures I have  painted fos the gallery of my pleasant  memories:  I.  The first night in camp on an unaccustomed bed of boughs ia never a  restful one, and the peep of day found  me awake.. J got up and dressed. The  morning cold. The leaden lake was  stirring in tho breeze. The sun'looked  over the mountain and the lake afar  out hailed him with gleaming st*e<.  Nearby in the still shadows, -where the  deep trotjt-lis, two loons were sporting as crazily aa loons i'an. 1h>y  screamed their laughter to their mates  and to each .other. They played hide  and.seek, one chasisg the other round  and round, propelling themselves along  the water with the oircling tips of  their strong wings. They made a  merry moroaig noise���glad to be loobs.  One dived, the other peeped down at  the place of the plunge, but quickly  raised his head and glanced around.  Again and again he did this. Then  Then with the bold-beating ofthe  waters he was after her again; for she  appeared some fifty yards away. But  she was coquettish and dived again.  They were as crasy as loons can be���  and as , happy. The last I saw of  them they were catching fish and  swallowing them mercilessly.  Q.  One afternoon as we were standing  tartly looking at the lake we saw one  of those storms wnMi strike terror  into the mind, coming galloping up  like the Scots Greys riding to battle.  Towards the south a rain-storm was  lashing the sky and .urging tbe horses  onward. Near us all was peaceful.aa  molten nilvor.  Hoar {fee warning lv'nh of the distant  roar I They're coming towards us. Peg  down the tents! Tighten the ropesl Is  there a -boat on Hie lake? Nto; oar  minds are at rest to view the battle  of the deep. The noise of many patera is upon us.' The long ranks ofthe  horses 'stretch from shore to shore.  They are foaming and plunging and  overturning, and as they fall others  rise, to take their places. The sun is  dead. The waters around us are nowl  a murky green. The first breath of  wind fane our faces one moment, and  the next roars itself hoarse in our  ears. The Waters follow in thetr rnad-  rtess. Fret a gentle ripple dances  along, rising into swinging waves,then  the horses battling, tearing .grinding,  pawing on tbe beach, and sinking  backward exhausted only to be trampl  ed out of recognition. Now the raindrops one by one fall upon our cheeks.  We hurry to shelter and they play ��p-  on the rocking tents as upon the drums  of war._  . >v _  For a time we kept to shelter, but,  as the rain drove beyond us, we went  out to see the dying of the storm. As  it had come, so it went, but with its  baok to us now. Gradually the swaying waters rocked themselves to sleep,  and the pease of relief was ours.. 0  waters, eloquent of life, we defy possible, calamity when we know itjpando  us no harm, our fears arise only from  our helplessness.  in.  Oar camp was beautifully placed on  the fiat at the foot of the mountain,  close by the dry mouth oi the creek.  On our first day of exploration we  felt we must find the" living waters of  the creek. They were not tar away.  A road went up behind the camp anal  we followed It. A rood is always safe  and on that account it soon loses its  appeal. At-any-rate we soon left it,  Striking throsgk the busk we found  the creek quite real and alive. We  coukT not resist the sparkling waters  so we drank and smacked our lips.  A little higher up we came upon a  series of little fans; up, up we went,  but there -was no end as fas aa we  oouM se, and we returned to that  which was families and safe. Now  we explored the rower creek,. Where  waa it lost? We found the end, and  like most ends it Wat not speetaoslar.  Hsut it was sad. The little lively  creek spilled its life among the stones  and was lost. Lost? Far down, unseen, it reached its home and was at  rest. We know, but could not see.  Bid that trickling creek tell us tbe tale  ot humble lives which reach the end of  their endeavour* unseen, unrecognisBtl?  Perhaps so. -It had fulfilled its end to  us.    It is still there for you.  IT.  Two of us went fishing on the lake  one lovely day. While one was rowing, his companion saw a dead grouse  floating on the lake. As it passed  the side oi the boat we took it in.  How did it come to meet its death?  The eyes were bright. It was apparently unweanded. It seemed a  strange death for a grouse to die.  We were at a loss to know, until a  gentleman, wise in the ways of ttSe  wild, to whom we rsoounted the incident, suggested that probably a  hawk had pursued it, and it had  sought safety on the lake, and 'becoming exhausted had been' drowned. It  had sought safety in the unaccustomed  and had perished. Fear had blinded  instinct and despair had driven his  wound.  Nominated for  the Forthcoming  Mayor Jones Receives Overwhelming Backing From  Both Farmers and Business Men  In accordance with the proclamations whioh have been posted around  the district for some time past, tho  returning officer for the district ol  South Okanagan, Mr. C.

It was a wise move to hold tho  regatta a week later this year as the  weather is getting more settled and  the water warmer every woek. By  August the 19th conditions will probably be the same as in former years.  Arrangements have been madevfor  the use of-the use of a war canoe for  the camp at Vernon in order that  they may be able to praetioe and race  here at the regatta. A Kelowna crew  will race at the Vernon Military regatta on Long Lake on August 12th.  An excursion is being arranged to  leavo Vernon at 7.30 a.m. on August  19th, arriving at Kelowna about 10  a.m. and returriing the same night at  9 p.m. This excursion is for camp  and Vernon people.  The band of one of the regiments at  Vernon is being negociated for to  come down and play through the Regatta and m tho evening atthe confetei  carnival. This feature is always very  popular.  A junior lacrosse match between  Armstrong and Kelowna has been arranged for the afternoon of Regatta  day.  A novel and interesting competition  has been arranged between the Kelowna and Vernon Volunteer Fire Brigades.

On the invitation qf Mr.  Kyle, Vocational Officer, Military Hospitals f'ommittee, Ottawa, one f��f the  members of the staff of the Live Stock  Brunch, Department of Agriculture,  gave an illustrated lecture on poultry  raising at the convalescent home on  Monday, duly 17th. The returned 9o\-  diers ai*e evidently taking a groat interest In this new departure, and; th  (raining and instruction they will re  ceive under the expert men from ihe  department will undoubtedly stand  many of them in good stead when  they aro strong enough to go on the  land.  At tho conclusion of tho lecture a  poultry elub was formed and arrangements were made for meetings to be  held every two weeks. These meet-  ngs will include lectures and also  visits to many of tho poultry ranohe  in the vicinity of Victoria.  I'ndor tho supervision of the Live  Stock Branch, a poultry house has  been built by the soldiers and the  fowls will bo installed in thc near  future. All the work of raising the  poultry for tho use of the hospital will,  be handled by members of the n*"v  poultry club, who will soil their prod  uce, the profits going towards increasing the stock and other improvements.  Any surplus profits will be turned over  to tho members of the club.  Fattening crates are now under construction and will soon be occupied  by fowls that will later adorn the  tables of tho hospital. Tt is possible  that other instructional work relating  to agricultural matters will later be  taken up by the department.

Nothing like them has ever been accomplished  before. They offer, without words and without boasting, an  object lesson as to the might of Britain asconvincing as the fac's  themselves. A�� moving pictures, in beauty, vital interest and  clearness, they have never been excelled. Every loyal citizen  of the empire owes it to himself to see them. The impression  will be lifelong.

Kelowna Grapes for .  the Duke's Table  It is, perhaps, not generally  known, but to Kelowna belongs  the honor of having the only procurable hot-house table grapes in  the west of Canada, and probably  in a still wider area. This fact became known recently during the  western tour of H.R.H. the Duke  and Duchess of, Connaught, when  the country was scoured for grapes  to grace the royal table. Messrs.  Palmer & Rogerson, of Kelowna,  were the only ones in a position to  upply the needed dessert, and  they have" accordingly been making shipments to every point along  the governor-general's itinery.  Visitors to the'greenhouses can  not fail to have been impressed  with the sight of the luxuriant vines,  carefully trained and pruned, supporting their tempting burden of  purple bunches. From these vines  no less than 1,000 pounds of  grapes will be shipped this year.  Year by year the fame of these  Kelowna grapes has increased until now there is a demand far exceeding the supply, and the inquiries from far-distant points.  Mr. Palmer is an old hand at the  grape business, having several medals and other honors to his credit  won in old country shows.

Inlhe incessant struggle Ior  supremacy: between oliensive  and defensive weapons fresh interest has been infused into the  contest bv the coming of the  aerial war vessel.' The.persistency with which the Germans  cling to ithe: Zeppelin idea, and  their use of this lighter-than-  air craft in actual warfare,both  on sea and land, have forced experts engaged in research work  to apply themselves seriously  to thc task of providing an anti  dote. And, as usually happens  in every extension of offensive  methods of warfare, the ingenuity of scientific men has not  failed in this case to supply an  effective defensive.  The delav in arriving at a decision was'due lo the conflict of  opinion among practical men m  thc annv and navy as to  best means of meeting  emergency.

It is  an open secret that ^he French  have evolved a gun which has j  proved mosr effective in bringing down enemy aircraft. In |  England anti-aircraft guns have]  made Zeppelin raids a most  hazardous undertaking for the  Germans. I,ondon, where the  defence has been strengthened,  is no longer at thc mercy of the  enemy's aerial bombers, as in  earlier days. This, no doubt,  is due to the new gun which  ltasbeen mounted. One Zeppelin has been brought down in  the Thames cstitry and her crew  captured, while others are  known to have been damaged  by gunfire. The iumiunity of  the raiding Zeppelin is a thing  of the past. Some ol the raiders have been turned back as  thev endeavored to pass the-  coast defences. The problem  may not be wholly solved, but  reliance upon gun defence has  already been justified.  The defensive weapon follows  the offensive as night the day.  The fortress with its fixed guns  fell before the siege howitzer,'  and this in turn has given place  to field works and mobile artillery. The navy has found a  meant of protecting itself from  the; submarine, and there is no  reason to doubt the unofficial  reports that an effective defence  against    aircraft   has been dis-  Mii  Oray.

Because your grandfather did? Or  do you think spring the natural time,  (therefore, the only one, for hatching  and raising chicks?  I wonder what manufacturing business, with considerable capital invested in its plant, could endure the strain  of letting the plant stand idle half the  year or more? That is just what  happens on many poultry farms, where  Incubators and brooders are in���. use  only part of the time. ...  Except on an exclusive egg farm, rr  yhere fancy stock is tho object, hatch-  tig may be profitably carried on during most of the year except the hottest'  months. Three main objects are attained by this out-of-soason hatching:  Winter broilers, spring roasters, and  pullets that will begin laying later in  the spring than thoso hatched tho previous spring, and will lay much later  autumn when eggs are high in  price.  "For* the small poultryman or farmer  who uses hens for hatching, fall is an  ideal time, provided warm buildings  we availablo when the weather gets  cold. Broody hens nre more .plentiful'  than in early spring; the chicks can  Ibid more insects, seeds and greens;  they are freer from insect pests, and  Beam easier to raise than at any other  time of year. Cool weather seems  more favorable to growth. August  a good time to begin hatching.  These fall hatched chicks will usual-  find a good market as broilers in  the winter. If not they may be grown  into good roasters by spring at which  time there is a brisk demand at high  ���in some citios, extremely high���prices.  The pullets, if kept, will lay well after  tho bulk of hens have stopped in the  fall, and then fresh eggs are always  high. Some keep only thc most promising pullets for layers, turning tho  rest into roasters. The large breeds  are used mostly, and the coekrels arc  generally caponized.  I know one poultryman who lost, in  late summer, about all his spring  hatched White Leghorn pullets by  weasels. He hatched a lot in September to replace them. These received extra good caro.and he had them  laying before the end of February,  fully as soon as some farmers get eggs  from spring hatched pullets.���:F. H.

J. H. OAVITSS  in Boom No. 1. Oak Hall Monk, between the hours of 2:30 and B:30 p.m.  on Saturday    of each week, er   assy  To the Electors of South Okanagan, B.C.  Dear Sir,���  No doubt you are already aware that Thursday, September 14th has-been fixed as the  date of the polling in the forthcoming Provincial Election.  As you will be called upon to vote for the South Okanagan Riding, 1 would like, as  candidate selected by Conservatives and a large body of independent business men and  farmers, to draw your attention to some of the more important considerations which make it  urgent and nar.ossary that your vote and influence be used on my behalf.  The Okanagan valley and particularly the district of South Okanagan to which you belong,  is at lhe present time at a stage of development which demands the greatest care and active  co-operation of all concerned. Indeed, it might be said that the purely local needs and  problems of the district are so important as to entirely overshadow those of a wider provincial  character.  No one, I venture to say, of all those who have resided for any length of time in the  district, has had the temerity to deny that, for. productiveness of soil, climate and general  desirability as a place to live in, our valley stands in the front rank of all the wide Dominion,  It is obvious, however, that these things alone are not sufficient to ensure the permanent  prosperity of the district, and there is no doubt that in the past too much emphasis has been  laid upon the natural advantages of the valley and too little upon the organization of necessary  facilities such as transportation, extension of reliable markets lor fruit and produce, and the  provision of an absolutely permanent, cheap, and abundant supply of water for irrigation purposes. Given these things, which would ensure to the farmer an adequate return for his labors,  the natural attractions of the valley would compel a development out"of all proportion to what  has yet been achieved.  The government of Eritish Columbia during the past session adopted many measures of  far-reaching importance to tlie farmers of the valley, chief amongst �� hich might be mentioned  the Agricultural Credits Act, affording much-needed financial assistance to the farmer who is  struggling to put his place on a revenue-producing basis. The system is one which has worked  wonders in many other countries, notably in New Zealand.  Much progress has also been made in the preliminary gathering of data leading to the  government taking control of irrigation water supply, and this I regard as perhaps the most  pressing of all local problems. I am strongly in favor of government provision and ownership  of storage reservoirs and main canals, leaving distribution systems to be handled by water  municipalities specially organized amongst water users themselves. This would ensure a degree  of permanence which nothing else could give, and cheaper water rates to farmers.  For the first time the district of South Okanagan has been given the opportunity 6f direct  representation in the House, and it is essential especially at this critical time that a representa.  tive be chosen who has thorough knowledge of local conditions, and who is in intimate touch  with its needs and problems.-  As you know, 1 have been resident in Kelowna for a number of years and all my interests,  financial and otherwise, are bound up with the district. For the past ten years I have been very  closely connected with almost every local movement for the benefit of the district���the Board  of Trade, the Growers' Exchange, Farmers' Institute, Agricultural Association, Kelowna Creamery, Kelowna Hospital, and others. Of my work on the City Council I need say no more than  that I have been a member of that body for the past seven years, five of them as Mayor of the  city. In all these various activities I have had an opportunity which has fallen to few of gaining  valuable experience an.d insight into the needs of the district, and I am willing to place this  experience at your disposal in looking after your interests should'I be elected to the legislature.  During thc past few months the government of which the Hon. W. J, Bowser is the head, has  been subjected to the most venomous and bitter attacks, and serious charges have been  laid in the wildest possible manner. Happily these charges have been disproved in the most  convincing manlier, and in some cases have rebounded to the lasting discredit of those who  laid them. The record of the past session of the House, too, is admitted on all hands to be the  most remarkable in the history of the province for the number and character of the beneficial  measures which have been passed.  There may be some, however, who from purely party considerations would hesitate to  vote for one who admitted Conservative leanings. To such I would say that while 1 certainly  would support the government in the highly progressive policy which has characterized the  past session, I am not a hidebound party politician, and would at all times place the interests of  the district before any parly considerations.  Yours sincerely,  J. W.JONES,  j
