 Uns\>,  \^cXck��Owt^  Kctofcma Ikcarti  VOL. X.   NO. 39  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA. THURSDAY, AUGUST 15. 1918.���4 PAGES  f 1.50 Per Annum  Lady Evangelist  Visits Kelowna  Addresses   Large Gatherings  in Baptist Church  A visitor who excited considerable interest in town during the  past few days was Mrs. Frances L.  Neth, a well-known evangelist who  is in charge of the Christian Institute, Vancouver, a body which  makea a special study of Bible  prophecy and the interpretation of  Scriptural teaching. She is now  touring the Okanagan Valley and  commencing laat Thursday has  addressed large gathetinga in the  Baptist church. Possessing a pleasing personality and exceptionally  eloquent delivery, Mr. Neth has  attracted increasingly interested  audiences night' after night. She  waa to/ eight years wiih the famous  Dr. R. A. Torrey in the Los Angeles Institute.  The meetings opened last Thursday evening, Mrs. Neth speaking  twice on weekdays and three timea  on the Sunday. Referring to the  trend of the times she said that  God had a great plan for thia  world and had worked accordingly  ever since the day of Adam. We  ourselves were in what is known  as the Day of Grace, and from the  signs of the times this Grace Day  was fast approaching its winding  up. " It is most evident," contended  Mrs. Neth, " from a casual reading  of 2 Tim. 2, 1-5, that the perilous  times, the last days are right now  upon ua. We could see the covetous, hear the boasters, and everyone knew who was the notorious  truce - breaker who dabbled in  "scraps of paper." All these ars.1  other signs, she believed, foretold  the end of this dispensation.  The afternoon meetings were  devoted to the instruction of new  converts.  On Sunday the church waa  crowded when Mrs. Neth dealt  with the "Second Coming of  Christ, the next great event." The  world had aeen nothing in all its  history so terrible as this present  world-war, and nothing ao drastic  in its swift revolutions in national  life and custom. She thought she  could see ahead into a future uniform world governed from one  centre. The jews once again resident in their own beloved Palestine now so providentially evacuated by the intolerant Turk, According to Scripture warning, at  the very inception of thia 'world  federation' the Saviour would appear auddenly and take the Church  out of the world unto Himself.  " Do we see anything that hints at  this happening to-day > " asked  Mrs. Neth. " Yes, the very lineaments of prophecy are being traced out to-day and events are  tumbling over each other in their  haste to fulfil the never-failing  plan ot God."  By special request Mrs. Neth remained over two extra evenings  and addressed eager audiences,  and many expressions of thanks  and gratitude were tendered upon  her departure. A social picnic of  interested friends was held in the  park on Tuesday afternoon in honor ot Mrs. Neth's visit to Kelowna.  The pastor, Mr. Bennett, reports  that the visible results are excellent,  a number have been converted,  backslidden Christiana have -been  helped back to the path of Christ-  duty, and altogether renewed interest in the Bible phophecies has  been aroused in many mihda.  Mr. R. P. Hughes was a passenger to Olds, Alts., yesterday.  Rutland News  ��  Ifreat oar owa eoiresnonaeatl.  Miss Torrance, of Vancouver, is  visiting Mrs. W. Gay.  The Girls' Enterprise Club met  on Tuesday at the home of the  president, Miss Monford.  Mrs. Blenksrn and family are  leaving tomorrow for their home in  Kamloops, after (pending a holiday of six weeks at Mrs. S. J.  Craig's ranch.  At the Kelov/na Women's Institute flower show there was a special display of exquisite sweet peas  grown in Rutland by the Rev.  Griffiths. The specimens of Re yal  Purple Spencer, Wedgewood Blue  and Elfrida Pearaon i were greatly  admired.  Kamloops buainess men have  been notified by the B.C. Telephone  Co., who operate the telephone  system in that town, that a raiae of  $1 per month per 'phone will be  made, starting with this month.  A dividend at the rate of five per  annum for the first half of thia vear  has been declared by the Okanagan  Telephone Company. The company haa been empowered by the  provincial government, from which  it holds its charter, to make certain  increases in the telephone rates,  adjudged necessary to meet the increased cost of operation and continue to give efficient service.  Meeting to Present  Medals to S.O.S. Boys  A public meeting is being arranged for Saturday night, Auguat  24th, for the presentation of badgea to " S.O.S." boys. The Hon.  Dr. McLean, minister of education  has been asked to be present. Full  particulars will appear in next  week's paper.   o      ���   ' -'     ���  Canada is to send a force of  4,000 men to join the international  army in Russia.  British airmen brought down a  German Zeppelin on Monday in  flames off the east English coast.  The machine was one of the largest and newest of this type of  oircraft.  The anti-Bolsheviki movement  in Russia is growing rapidly, the  Bolsheviki Soviet organization having virtually gone to pieces.  The important town of Mont  Didier, which was approximately  at the apex of the German salient  aouth of the Somme, has been  captured by the Allies.  Since the. beginning of the Allied  counter offensive on July 18 the  Allies have taken more than 70,000  prisoners and more than one thousand guns, the Echo de Paris states.  In addition it estimates that more  than 10,000 machine guna have  been captured from the enemy.  The Austrians are reported moving  an immense amount of material  and great numbers of troops in the  direction of Italy and are expected  soon to attempt another offensive  on the Italian front.  Recruits to the number of 13,941  were secured for the Canadian Expeditionary Force in Canada, the  United States and EngLind during  the month of July, according to  the official statement of the militia  department. During the same  period, the total wastage waa 4222,  leaving a net gaits for the nionth of  9715 men. Enlistments in the  Canadian Expeditionary Force  since the beginning ot the war have  reached a total of 566,920.  General Kikiao Otan, one of  Japan's most distinguished soldiers  has been chosen to command the  Japanese section and will be the  ranking officer of the American  and allied expedition in Siberia.  Gen. Otana in effect will be commander-in-chief of the combined  forces, with the consent of the  various governments' participating.  The general, who is 63 yeara old,  waa a staff officer during the Chi no-  Japanese war and commanded a  brigade in the Russo-Japanese war.  When the Japanese entered the.  world war he waa aasigned to the  forces which captured the German  colony of Tsing-tau.  Canneries Wili Soon  Be in Full Swing  Big Tomato Crop is Ripening  Up Fast  The tomato crop has been maturing verv fast lately, and in all pro.  bability the different canneries will  all be running full blast inside of a  week or ten days. The B. C.  Evaporators (Kelowna Packers,  Ltd.) have already a large enough  supply of ripe tomatoes delivered  and in sight to warrant the announcement that will commence operations Monday. They are unxious  to secure all thejocal help possible  by that time, especially women and  girla for peeling, and are also bringing in about 80 girls from the coast,  whd are expected to arrive within  the next few days. The Casorso  rooms which were rented for their  accommodation have been put into  shape and all arrangements made  for boarding them. The canning  plant has all been installed in the  reconstructed B. C. Growers building, leaving the evaporating plant  undisturbed. By this means it will  be possible at the end of the tomato season to switch over in a few  days to vegetable evaporating  which will likely be continued  through the winter months.  The Occidental cannery has been  running for the past five or six weeks  on soft fruits. Cherries, finished  some time ago, were a big pack,  and ve.y fine fruit. Apricots, plums  and peaches will occupy the plant  for a few days yet," when the  tomatoes will be taken up and all  possible help secured to put up a'  big pack. Just how long the tomato  canning will last of course depends  upon the weather, but with anything like favorable conditions the  prospects at the present look extremely good. The recent rains  helped a good deal, and will pu>  weight into tha fruit. When the  tomatoes are disposed ofthe Occidental expect to switch to canning  apples, thus lengthening out the  season for the operatora until well  into December.  The Western Canners, Ltd , are  also preparing to open up, and in  fact have already received a large  quantity of tomatoes. The plant  has been thoroughly reorganized,  and n big output is expected this  year.  The Orchard City Evaporator is  still continuing the work of fruit  crystallization, and by (he time the  apple season opens a large stock  of ciystallized cherries, apricots  and peaches will have been manufactured. As the season progresses  evidence is abundant that the demand for thia class . of goods will  be enormous this year. Mr. Calder  also expects to turn out a greatly  increased pack of apple rings this  year, having enlarged his plant in  aeveral ways. It might be as well  to point out that this year in view  of lhe great desire to conserve  food supplies of all kinds, culls  and windfalls should be�� carefully  picked up for the evaporator.  Waste is not to be tolerated this  year.  Mrs. Chas. Quinn returned to  Kelowna yesterday.  Percy Bird is a visitor this week  from the coast.  Mr. and Mrs. Stiell left for Victoria yesterday.  Miss Babbit, of Summerland, is  a guest this week of Mrs. Ambler.  Anglican service will be held at  East Kelowna Sunday next at 3  o'clock.  Mrs. Howell, Miss Hollinsworth  and Mr. Duncan, of Vancouver,  are staying this week with Dr. and  Mrs. Telford.  Lieut. Bruce Cash, 102nd Regiment, is to take over the duties of  Quartermaster at Vernon Internment Camp, in place of Hon. Capt.  H. A. Langford.  The next list ot subscribers to  the Canadian Patriotic Fund will  be published immediately after the  end of this month. Will those in  arrear kindly hand in their' subscriptions to the secretary as soon  as possible,  Rutland Takes Dp  Manual Training  Will Join Kelowna  in Using  Instructor's Services  Manual training as a achool subject is now out of the experimental  etp.ge so far aa the Okanagan district is concerned, and it is extremely likely that within a short time  even the smaller rural schools will  all be equipped for this work.  Seveial schools are coming into  line thia year, and the number of  teachers is b-ing increased. Up to  thc present Kelowna and Penticton  have been sharing in the services  of an instructor, but following plans  which have been made during the  past week or two by Mr. John Kyle  the piovincial director of technical  education, thia arrangement is to  be discontinued. The Rutland  school board having decided to  obtain the necessaiy equipment,  Mr. Mitchell, the instructor, wilt  wilh the opening of the new term  in September, adopt a schedule  which will allow him to divide his  time between Kelowna and Rutland. Several of the other district  schools were considering the  adoption of manual training classes  but financial and other reasons have  prevented the completion of arrangements in time for this year.  Minister of Agriculture  Pays Kelowna a Visit  Is Sizing Up Agricultural Conditions in Valley  The Hon. E. D. Barrow, minister  of agriculture, paid a visit to Kelowna last Thursday in the course  of a tour of the Okanagan valley,  mainly undertaken for the purpose  ot getling acquainted with the  working of the department'a organization in thia part of tbe country and as a practical farmer in  sizing up conditions generally.  While at Vernon Mr. Barrow  paid a visit to the Coldsteam ranch  which the Land Settlement Board  has recommended the government  to purchase at a price of $900,000  for returned soldiers. He waa  accompanied by Dr. K. C. MacDonald, M.L.A., F R. E. DeHart  and Ben Hoy.  From Kelowna the hon. minister  passed over by ferry and motored  down to Summerland, accompanied by Mr. L. V. Rogers.  Demand Increase in  Allowance  Soldieis' wives and dependents  of Winnipeg are atarting a nationwide movement demanding that  they receive an allowance of $100  a month instead of the $42, which  ia now given them. This was the  decision reached at a mas-meeting  held oniFriday afternoon in the  Labor Temple at which more than  300 wivea and dependents of soldiers attended. The Tradea and  Labor forces of Winnipeg declare  that they will back them up to tbe  limit and will intereat the whole of  organized labor of Canada in this  much-needed increase in the allowance paid by the government to  the aoldiera' dependents.  The Ottawa street railway system  is completely lied up as the result  of a strike.  Mrs. Dixon and daughter left  veaterday for Calgary.  Mr. W. Huckle has generously  given a sorrel mare to the Canadian Patriotic Fund committee,  who desire to find a purchaser  immediately. The deacription given with it ia as follows: About 10  yeara old, sound in wind and limb,  about 14. hands in height, good  saddle horae and in excellent condition. If not previously sold it  will be auctioned in the city park  by Mr. Stockwell at 5.15 p.m., on  Thursday, Auguat 15th.  tr  .I ��� .ii  2>  *t-*sv-k\A A-.'*-��,  [L.SJ  CANADA.

Harvest Leave for  Soldiers  A formal order applicable to all  pane of Canada governing harvest  leaves to members of the C. E. F,  was issued Friday by the militia  department.    It provides:  "Subject to the instructions of  general officers commanding, harvest leave will be granted by officers  commanding units to men who were  working on farms immediately b  fore thev joined for duty. The leav<-  will be to work on a soecified farm  but not necessarily on that on which  the man concerned was previously  working It may be extended to  men in medical category A, B and  C, and need not be preceded by  issue of clothing, inoculation, vaccination or more documentation  than particulars of recruits. It will  be without pay.  "Men now in districts other than  that in which they joined will if they  go to specified iarms in their home  districts be furnished with return  transportation to the headquarters  of that district, if they desire or require it.  "Harvest leave will be limited lo  six weeks and mav be cancelled at  any time by wire or letter. The  six weeks' period may commence  when the soldier desires.  "Men in categories lower than A  to whom leave has already been  granted, will be given an extension  in accordance with the local harvest  need to a total not exceeding eight  weeks and they will be immediately so notified by letter oril neces  sary by wire."  Cut in Sugar Rations  Reduction of household con  sumption of sugar in Canada to a  ration of one and one-half pounds  a person a month for personal use,  is requested by the Canada Food  Board in a statement just issued.  The utmost possible conservation  is urged in addition to the re  strictions now in force upon all  manufacturers who use sugar.  Householders are a'so asked to  use yellow sugar instead of the  granulated product wherever possible, because in ordar to get the  most efficient economic results  from the refining of sugar it is  necessary that about 30 per cent  of yellow sugar be produced by  the refineries. The Food Board's  appeal is made as a reault of a  conference of the internationa  sugar commission and a full re.  view of the raw sugar situation!  the balance of crop orv hand and  the Allies' requirements.

McLean, acting minister of the department of naval  service, has announced the formation of the Roval Canadian Air  Service. This organization, which  will come under the direction of  naval department, has for its primary object the defence of Canada's  coasts but men enlisting in the  new air force will be liable for service outside the Dominion if  necessary.  Candidates accepted for the  Roval Canadian Air Service will  be entered as cadets, and will be  required to sign on for three years  or for six months after the duration of lhe war.  It was stated at the department  lhat pilots for seaplanes, airplanes  and kite balloons were required  immediately in connection with  the new organization. Only young  men born of naturalized British  subjects between the age of 17  and 26, and in the highest medical category will be accepted, and  arrangements have been completed  with the militia authorities under  which accepted candidates will be  released for service in the Royal  Canadian 'Air Service. Seaplane  cadets, it ia said, will be trained in  the U.iited States this winter, and  airship cadets will be sent to England for training.  English Women Wear  Standard Dress  Standard clothing for men and  women is the next step in economy  in England. Special clothes made  by government factories are now  on lhe market, so a nursing sister  who recently returned from England says. The women are taking  to these garments better than the  men, however. Although the garments are largely of the same pattern, nevertheless the people are  patriotically adopting them.  A good pair of shoes now costs  25s. where they previously cost  508. They are of a much better  quality and give better satisfaction  for lhe money than those made by  private concerns.  It is the sair.e way with the  clothing. Though not made elaborately they are simple and of  good material, made in a masculine style, and are of men's cloth.  "It doesn't make much difference  to the women anyway," said the  nurse, "as they are mos'ly wearing  trousers and coats to work in and  have been for some time."

Aug. 13, 1918  Our Chief Scout, Sir Robert  Baden-Powell, believes that the  principles of scouting should have  a great influence in training boys  in their future responsibilities ol  citizenship. In the Headquarters  Gazette for June, he writes in part  as follows in an article on "The  School Prelect and the Scout Patrol  Systems," (he of course is referring  to the Old Countiy public  schools): ���  "As nearly every man will now  have political voting power, one  of the aims of education should be  to prepare the young citiz n for his  responsibilities in this line ....  Formerly the young man took up  lhe same line of politics as his  father had done before him���just  as he did in the question of religion���not from his own convictions  but from tradition. Now-a-days  wilh the rapid social development  and changes what his father thought  is out of date and behind tbe times  for the modern young patriot. It  is statesmanship rather than party  politics for which we want to prepare the boys.  We in the scout movement are  credited with supplying for the  boy who has not had the same  chance as one brought up in the  public school, an equivalent character training, especially ir> the  directions of responsibility and  discipline.  In the public school, authority  and responsibility are put upon  the prefects to maintain order and  tone among the rest of the boys.  Obedience to the authority of the  older boy is demanded on the part  of the junior as a point of discipline.  The practice of responsible  authority and obedience to it  among the boys is carried out in  the scout movement through the  patrol system, but it is on lines  rather more in accordance with  the spirit of the age than the prefect system .of the public school.  In the prefect system authority  is deputed by the masters to the  head boys. It is merely the delegation of autocratic rule and while it  puis the junior boy in his place  (not a bad thing at times), it is in  no sense democratic. It does not  give the boy freedom of action,  except at the risk of punishment if  he takes the line that does not  pleirae his superior. Whereaa in  the patrol system, where properly  canied out the leader is responsible  for the success of his patrol whether  in its games or in its efficiency, and  the scouts are impelled to carry  out the leaders instructions through  their desire for their palrol to excel, It is an expression of their  keenness and "esprit de corps" by  doing. In other words it is "Playing the game."  The leader realizes on his part  that to' gain . success he has to  foster this spirit by tact,and discrimination and by appealing to  the human side In the Court of  Honour (again if properly run) the  voice of the boys is heard and the  rules are made for their own guidance by the boya themselves.  Similarly in the) patrol leaders'  conference (again where properly  managed) the ideals and aims of  the movement are considered and  the steps to them'discussrd among  the boys themselves, so that they  become possessed of a wider and  less selfish outlook in realizing the  cons, as well as the pros, of the  question, which previously may  have had but one side for them.  Thus the patrol becomes a practical school of self-government."  a      ' a  a  We are wondering how many  of you  have read the wonderful  Pbooss 217 Bad 216  'GRANDVIEW'  Okanagan Centre  Summer  boarders  received.

He was for  several years employed with Mr.  W. Haug, and in every way a popular young man.  Sir,���Just a gentle zephyr from  an old Kelownaite now slogging  away on one of the eastern fronts.  Being a lucky recipient every week  of the " Record" through its medium am able to follow closely  and keep well informed of events,  6tc, in and around the orchard  cily.  I observe from time to time Kelowna lads returning from the  western front pending their discharges through wounds and I  often think what lucky fellows���  in some respects. But alas, there  are some who have made the  supreme sacrifice and whose faces  we sadly miss.  Comparing my own experiences  I must admit that up to the present  have been extremely lucky, seeing  that I journeyed overseas to join  up just after the outbreak of war.  A lew weeks later was shipped out  to Gibraltar for a short period  thence proceeding to that land of  mystery, Er��ppt, where 1 was enabled whilst in the vicinity of Cairo  to visit the sphinx, pyramids, tombs  and some of the tamous mosques,  all highly interesting to anyone  familial with Biblical history. After several months on the desert  towards Tripoli rounding up the  hostile Bedouin and Senussi, who  had covetous eyes on Alexandria  and other Nile cities, eventually  putting the "kibosh" on them, we  were shipped to the most important theatre of war, France. After  fifteen months there, going through  some of the bitterest fighting, including the battles of Somme and  Airaa, eventually getting wounded  trying to head one ot Fritz's 5.9s,  resulting in losing a slice out of  my nose. However, after recuperating for a few months in dear old  Blighty was destined to see even a  new front and here I find myself  in Macedonia endeavoring to keep  King Tino quiet and making things  lively for the wily Bulgar.  So it seems that 1 am to see the  whole thing through to a finish  providing my luck adheres and  that I am able to sidestep the  "dead homers." Wonder if there  are any other Kelowna men serving who can approach a Cook's  tour similar to thia one.  Have tried hard to transfer to  Lt.-Col. W. H. Moodie's battn. (1st  Can. Pioneers), but through some  inexplicable reason it failed,so am  still serving with the famous Die-  hards���Middlesex Regt.  However, after all the bashing  and battering about we are all  feeling optimistic and looking forward to an early and successful  termination of hostilities.  Am keenly anticipating an early  retum to the peaceful environs of  Kelowna and renewal of old acquaintances. Have happened  across several Kelowna boys in  France and England.  Would like to give a more detailed narrative of mv experiences  whilst travelling under eastern  skies, but must have regard for the  poor censor, so will conclude,  wishing the " Record" every success. Yours sincerely,  Pte. BILLY SCHOLL.  story of the blocade of Zeebrugge  anrl Ostend by the British navy,  and the last plunge of the old battleship the "Vindictive" which now  lies at the bottom of the entrance  to Ostend.  We had an opportunity recently  of reading a little pamphlet giving  the story written under the non-de-  plume of "Keble Howard" whose  real name is J. Keble Bell, Second  Lieutenant, R.A.F., and we ahall  be glad to hand the little book on  to anyone who might care to read  it. He writes that "there ia nothing  more gallant nor successful ���there  could be nothing more gallant nor  successful in the annals of the  British navy. Sailors believe that  a ship has a soul. In the case of  the "Vindictive" at any rate, this  is true, for the soul of that noble  vessel will live in the British navy  so long as the white ensign patrols  the, oceans to preserve the peace  of the world." ���  Telling of the wonderful spirit  of the men, an officer relates the  following, more expressive, we  think, than a volume of high-sound,  ing phrases. He says that the men  when at the blockade of Zeebrugge  on returning to the "Vindictive,'  from the mole on which they had  landed, would insist upon bringing  back their comrades with them  whether dead or alive. In the  officer's own words:���" I'll tell you  one thing, the men were great. 1  saw one chap come staggering on  board with a pal in his arms;  whether the pal was alive or dead  I could not say and I doubt whether  he could but I heard him murmur  to him: " I wouldn't leave yer Bill I  Did you think I would ?"

The driver, Mr. Phipps,  was knocked down and hurt a  little and the horse continued its  wild career down town.

Eventually it ran in  towards the sidewalk near Dark's  shoe store, smashing the whipple-  tree and thus liberating itself from  the buggy.

The fact is also emphasized that all butter  in such packages must  be of the 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 so 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:  100PAP^u^�����$1.50  200   ���    ,,     2.00  500   ,,    ���     3.15  1000   ���    ���    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 the price of butter  parchment (which has gone up over 100 per cent) we  have been reluctantly obliged to raise our prices slightly.  Nearly all this paper was previously manufactured in Belgium, and needless to say this supply has been entirely  cut off.

A Discovery.  A merchant in a Canadian city once made a discovery. He had purchased some goods that did  not turn out as he thought they would. Instead  of advertising "Enormous Bargains" he simply  said, "I bought them to sell at $10.00, but they are  not worth it; in fact I cannot recommend them at  all, but you will find them worth $4.00." He sold  them all and made some new customers, who  were convinced of his sincerity.  Nothing new about it. Truth is as old as the  hills and he simply told the truth. He discovered  that honesty is the best policy, and fortunately  very many advertisers are making the same discovery.  eopvmoHTiD ior.  iiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiMiiir  SSlCue  SYNDICATE  WHIPSAWING.���The Kelowna Irrigation  Company is prepared to pay $125 per  thousand square feet of 3-inch plank,  to ,be whipsawed at their dam on Mill  Creek, from logs to be skidded by the  Company at pit.
