It waa also  stated .that electric light would be required for the large pavilion tent and  water for the use of the camp, and  the suggestion was made that tha oity  might grant this free of charge.  After some little discussion it was  decided to grant the privilege of free  light and water on condition that1 ihe  association defrayed all actual cost of  making connections and installing.

The matter was brought  before the Premier who interceded on  behalf of the city, with the result as  shown in the general manager's announcement.  "We will start work immediately upon  the bridge over ��� the river at Kamloops," Mr. MacLeod told the Province. "Owing to the war and the  fact that it ia next to impossible to'  secure a supply of steel, the bridge  will have to be made of all British  Columbia products, which is to say  that it will be built of wood."  "Work on the line between Kamloops and the Okanagan is already  under wtiy," said Mr. MacLeod.  "Grading operations have started at  Long Lake, and we have large gangs  of men building camps and preparing  for the rapid completion of the OKan-  agan-Kamloops line."  Mr. MacLeod stated that nothing  was likely to interfere with the plans  of the company to hurry the new line  to completion unless it be the shortage of labor. .Grading in the Long  Lake division of the Okanagan branch  is being handled by the Northern Construction Company.

He it also  offering a prize for the bo.it dairy flow  shown by any member of the same  organization. In neither case, how  ever, will there be any prizes unless  there are at least three entries.  The Benvoulin local of the B.C.A.  O.A., is filso announcing that they will  offer a prize of the value of 815 (or  the best two grade milk oows shown  by any one owner.  If a vote of the two congregations  whioh is t|o be taken during the next  fow days favors the plan, it is likely  that the local Presbvterian and Methodist churches will take time by the  forelook, and adopt some tentative  scheme of union of the two churches  without waiting for the general union  of the two denominations whioh will  no doubt be consummated in the near  future. Committees of the two local  churches have been conducting negotiations for some time past, and have  agreed upon a basis upon whioh the  churches can be united. This will he  submitted to the congregations for  their approval.  It might be mentioned that at the  recent general assembly of the Presbyterian Churoh of Canada in Winnipeg,  the idea of church union was | endorsed  by the deoisive vote of 406 to 81). In  the Methodist Church the feeling is  praotically unanimous in favour of  union.

The first public meeting will be held  next Monday evening at 8 o'clock in  the large paviion tent.  The evening- lecture will be on "Why  We are Seventh-day Adventists," dealing with the fundameneal principles  which mark them as different from  other Christian denominations and  those principles in which they ugree  \yith and strongly emphasize the iloettj  pines of the Methodist, Presbyterian,  Baptist and other protest'ant J.-nom-  i nations.  This will include a discussion cf'he  following subjects:  "The New Testament Sabbath.''  "The Change of the Sabbath."  "The Second Coming of Christ."  "Fulfilled and Fulfilling Progbeeios."

News, records the  death at an advanoeci age, of a lady  who was well known to many Kelow  na people. She was the mother of  Messrs. Ceo. K and J. N. Thompson,  and had visited here for several  months some three or(four years ago.  "There passed away on Thursday,  ���luly 27, one of the first settlers in  this district in the person of Eleanor  Johnson, wife of the late Robinson  Thompson, in her 80th year. Mrs.  Thompson had been ill for several'  months, during whioh she suffered  much, but bore all with patience and  Christian fortitude.  Mrs, Thompson was born in Truro,  \.S., where she was married and  roared her family. In 1883 Mr. Thomson came west and took "rip land sout Hi  east of Wolseley and MrB. Thompson  joined her husband the following year.  Mr. Thompson died in 18S9 and since  then Mrs. Thompson has resided  with her children. To the union were  born nine children, eight of whom are  living, viz., Messrs Geo. F. and J. N.  of Kelowna, B*C. Mrs. A. -T. MoPhail  of Salmon Arm, BX'.; Messrs. A. G.  nnd Walter R., Mrs. M. Robinson.  Mrs. .Tos. Marlin, and Mrs. C. K.  Thompson of Woheley.  The Christian character of the deceased lady, her kindness and usefulness in her own home and in the  neighborhood endeared her to a wide  circle of friends. The sympathy of  numerous friends will be extended to  this highly respected family in the  loss of their mother."

A recent list includes note-paper,  toilet articles, mirrors, pipes, tobaoco,  socks, soft boots, canvas shoes, stylo  pens, hooks, sweaters, khaki shirts,  underwear, fruitsi flowers, puzzles,  mouth organs, playing cards, sweets.  "Comfort Rags/' as these parcels  have become known, have achieved  such fame among the soldiers as to  cause sometimes an embarrassing demand. Most of the articles thus sent  out come in generous measure from  the Red Cross branches in Canada.   o   The beginnings of the Saturday half-  holiday    might    be traced to an old-  time    custom among iho  planters of.  the Southern States.     On Saturdays, I  for   either    a whole or a part o; the ,  day, the slaves were released from the  regular    field    work.

By growing your own seed you will  l>e likely to secure next year a much  better root crop than if you use imported seed of the same variety.  This is the experience of tho^e who  now grow their own seed.  Perhaps you* think that y r-i do not  understand how to grow the seed'/  Nothing is easier to learn. Growjug  mangels, turnips, carrots, and beets  for seed does not require cither special  skill or capital.  To grow roots for seed is just :is  easy as to grow potatoes, and the  amount of labor involved is just about  the same.  For full information write io Mr.  M. 0. Malie, Dominion Agrostologist,  Ottawa.  Up to the present time over eight  hundred Indians have enlisted in the  Canadian Overseas forces, while the  Indinns of Cnnada have contributed  no less than $25, 635 to the patriotic  fund. An effort was made to form a  complete Indian battalion, and this  would have been successful, but for  the fact that recruiting officers hud  been busy amongst the tribes on behalf ,of several regiments. Tt is said  that after the war is over the Indians  who have served at the front will demand the whike man's privilege of  voting and it will probably lie handed  to them.  Premier Bowser and party will  be in tlie Okanagan again next  weok, and it is expected wiP be  in Kelowna to address a meeting  about Monday the 21st.

Kach day'the stranger in your .own  gets a shock, and the last ^i^ handed  him by a Benior and rraponsibbsuviU  in your troop, who most casually remarked that he "rarely read the suout  column in our paper" and "h ' hadn't  seen last week's so didn't know when  he had to hand in his paper or films.'1  Now scouts, can yon inform me how  we can over hope to succeed as a  troop, if our scouts are, not loy.d  enough to even read our column i.iul  to keep in touch with the request's oi  your scout masters and the requirements of our troop and brotherhood?  Perhaps I should appeal to your par-  cuts, who may bo able to sutrgest on-  other way of roaohing you.  1 wonder how many of our scouts  who were at camp remombcrs Mr. A.

A  ���ept'iilion of anything gets monoton*  his, I know, but in the prjiottoal t-.'le  if scoutm'g. practice certainly makes  poi'fect. Small use is a scout wearing  a badge as an ninbuhin'v man, v ho  directly he 1ms attained same cease's  to keep in touch with his work, and  when called upon for assistance he has  "forgotten." 1 found that in one im  stance, and tho scout to Ins ctedit admitted it with tears in his eyes, bul  promptly commenced a careful studv  ambulance work, and as-niroa me  he will never be caught again. I sincerely hope not. .lust imagine, if it  had been  h  serious accident.  "llillycan" in his column last week  devotes qufte a lot'of space in "Tcn��  derfoot" work. He informs ns t'.mt  the District Commissioner dwells considerably upon those subjects when he  is visiting. How many of our uecnud  or even First class Hcouts, can repeat  the requirements of that test? Whether  in camp or elsewhere, a lot ol good  can come of questioning one another  on, the diffcreut requirements of any  tcst> Say for instance, meeting an  Ambulance Man and suddenly spring  Ing on him "I've sprained my wrist,  what' can I do for it?" or a Path  finder, and asking him, "Whieh ia the  quickest way to fllenmoreV" Or n  Second Class scout, "Repeat the scout  law," or "the composition of the  Union -Tpr: ." Little unn\-p.>fi(r,d jogs  like that, would keep us tuned tip.  1 am disnppninted at the showing of  fdms in our "snapshot" jomictition.  So far only three entries; surelv there  were more pictures [taken than that.

But  our special reason for ruU'ovr ntten  tion to the scouts is that they look  workmanlike and clean. They stand  tup straight; fheir knees well orac?d,  their shoulders bnck, ready to go any-  whfirp and do anything., Why cannot  all scouts try to look like this? We  believe all scouts would like to do so  if they got the right  idea untidy  hoys are a disgrace to the movement."  [Pretty strong language for headquarters. What' can we have our District  Commissioner say to us?  Patrol Loaders, what about n conference? Before our season opens  again will you not have lots of ideas  to    discuss    with your follow Patfrol  Charley's Aunt to Be Played  Here Next Week  The United Producing Co. takes  pride in calling to attention the fact j  thai "Charley's Aunt" that sterling  comedy of all comedies, that has  weathered the theatrical storras ol  years too'numerous to mention simply  by sheer merit of story, truthfulness* lo  nature, and its cscruciatiugly funny  scenes, will be presented in all its en-J  tirety by a caste of twelve artists  picked as types for lhe characters they  are to play. That this play makes a  special appeal to all, with its natural  sentiment, its pure intent, its genuine  natural comedy, and the interest in its  theme, and is a play that will always  lie popular, there is no gainsaying,  and it always creates a dcs'uv to see  it each time it makes a visit to any  city. It may be hard 'or manv theatre-goers who as a rule patronize only  the latest plays and musical cotacdicB  to understand the longevity of that  best of farce comedies, "Charley's  Aunt," bul to its admirers (and they  are logion) it is no difficult matter to  grasp the reason or to foster the do-  sire to see it whenever the opportunity is presented. Hence, the old comedy is revived every few years, and is  always assured of capacity business  and the same interest that has characterized its presentation ever since its  first performance.  It has been conceded for years that  "Charley's Aunt" h the best farce  comedy of all time, and having outlasted any and all of them, it can  truthfully lav claim to a following  second to none. This old favorite,  with a very capable caste, special  scenery and (hi* sum" excruciatingly  funny situations will be seen at thc  Opera House on Thursday, August  17th.  The sacred bridgo of Pckin, whioh a  few years ago, no one was permitted  to tread upon except the emperor, is  now freely used by the Chinese  I edestrians.

Sidney Percival  Baron, Sherwood Foresters, whose  death in action was officially reported on July 13th, was lhe  youngest son of Mr. and Mrs.  Baron, formerly of Milton House,  Lindficld, Sussex, Eng. He was in  Kelowna district when war broke  out and joined the Canadian Cyclist Scouts in January, 1915, was  attached to the Royal Sussex Regiment and gazetted to the Sherwood  Foresters six months later. He was  instantaneously killed when leading hia platoon with great gallantry  across the open on July 5th.  The brigade was called out last  Friday afternoon to a fire which  had broken out in the barn behind  the O. K. Sawmill Co.'s mill on  Pendozi Street. Though prompt  to reach the scene, the boys were  hampered by lack of water pressure  and very little could be done save  prevent the fire from spreading.  The barn was completely destroyed, including about ten tons of  hay which had just been stored  there. The building was a comparatively new one built to replace  one burnt out about a year ago.  The loss is covered by insurance.  The young people of the Baptist  church had a most enjoyable  moonlight trip on Tuesday evening to the home of Mr. Reekie on  the second bench. Although the  elements did not show a promising  aspect during the early part of the  evening, a large crowd turned out  and enjoyed the beautiful country  drive, made more pleasant by the  light rain which had fallen. Some  good old-fashioned games were  played, and the rafters rang the  whole evening with the hilarity  and mirth of the party. Not for a  long time had such a pleasant  evening been spent. After refreshments had been served the  party left for town thanking Mr.  and Mrs. Reekie for their much-  appreciated hospitality.  Wdson Landing and  Westside Notes  (Vresa ear own CorTsanondsnt.)

Red-  sull, Trooper Ed. Redsull being  home on leave.  We are glad to hear that Miss  Alice Goodacre is progressing  favorably after her accident.  The 5-year-old cherry orchard  at Cotvale has yielded a considerable quantity of fine fruit this season, the last shipment of which is  just going out.  C.

Gay left this morning  for the coast having enlisted in the  Engineer's battalion there. He will  follow his trade of plumbing.  Should not something be done  to dispose of the dead horse which  has been lying for some weeks to  the danger of the public?  The Rev. T. Griffiths preached  in the Methodist church Sunday  evening, his sermon being of a  patriotic nature, appropriate to the  second anniversary of the war.  The Liberal leaders, Mr. H. C.  Brewster and W. A. Macdonald,  who are touring the province, are  being entertained at noon to-day  to a luncheon in the schoolhouse  organized by the liberals of Rutland and Ellison.

Fred Plowman, whose  leave had expired, returned to  camp at the same lime.  Mr. and Mrs. Allen H. Johnston  entertained the Presbyterian Bible  class and teachers Tuesday evening on the church grounds. After  an hour spent in lively and strenuous games the young people sal  under the pine trees and in the  dim light of tbe moon enjoyed the  weird and thrilling ghost stories  told by the Rev. D.

"  One of our campers by the name  of Fred wis observed going to the  coop being followed closely by lie-  cop. What's the charge and bat1,  Fred ?  What did Mrs. W. B. M. want  scales for?   Is W.

I here was marked progress it)  our song service Sunday evening,  sopranos, altos, tenors and basses  all being in first-class condition.  We all think we can sing.  A number or young ladies iron.  town were entertained Wednesday  afternoon at Sum Inn. 1 he occasion did not admit of a dry num  ber���lust bathing, then afternoon  tea.  J. B. K. brought a substantial offering to the bonfire on August 4,  in the shape of three splendid  specimens of knotty wood. Wasn't  he generous ?���not very, he couldn't split them !  If the animals (human as well as  quadrupeds) continue to take unexpected plunges into the water of  Manhatten, a life-saving station will  nave to be erected, Campers aic  requested to study fust aid to the  drowning. Liist victim was the  pride of Killkare, Sport.  What we feel might have been  a serious loss, but, according to  Mrs. Geo. K., would have proved  a calamity, happened when poor  Geo. lost his pipe m the treacherous  Manhattan sands. All campers  were at once notified and responded wilh such zeal that once more  Geo. and his pipe were one.  Kum-Hula camp was the scene  of a pleasant affair a shower���  (but m��t of rain) last Ihursday.  when Miss Mary Day's girl friends  showered her with things that help  itidke the world go round ; Mary.  we wish that all your coming days  will be bright and prosperous, and  that the clouds which sometimes  envelope the happiest lives may  never darken your horizon.  lhe lesidenl of Sum Inn camp  made a wrong turn Monday night.  He might have landed in Kurn-  Agen camp, and Geo. would sure  have felt like a stranger in a strange  land, but for the timely intervention of his wife who hailed him  with " Hi, Geo., this is our inn."  Geo. is a sober sort of fellow, too.  I he game is very plentiful this  summer at Manhattan, and persons hunt'lig without licences will  be prosecuted. Some ol lhe species  are very tame and dare to approach  the camp. Quite recently two Belgian hares were seen, also two  snakes, live domestic chick ns,  and a quantity of Bmall b rds���Oh  , yes, and whiffs of one skunk.  August 4th, the second anniver-  j saiy o| the war was cclebralt d  bj  I our Manhatteneis assisted  by the  kindly lit Ip of a number of Kelow-  ; nailes. Our lire brigade came along  in lull force, including the Greene  Mian,  Chipmonk  and   the   Chief,  j who made things merry  by  their  songs, whilst the chief's speech was  worthy of being written on parchment and stored in  the    archives  of Manhatten.    Come again, boy:-,  and we'll  endeavor to get a piano.  1 Iai\ Id made a trip to Manhatten  by launch. Whilst he was making  a social call, the younger.fry of  Manhatten-thought they would see  if the launch would go for lhem~  and it sure did.

Watermelons for Christmas  Ovor    H00 women arc ;ictin^ us sfln-  tiun masters in France.  In the home ol one ol my friends  watermelons arc always served as  fresh arid as ripe as Irom tho Held, on  such holidays ns Thanksgiving, Christmas and Now Year's day. Thoir ap-  pearanoo was always a mystery lo  friends, and thoir taste, at' such unexpected times, was always a delightful trout. Rut the secret is.out, and  1 will tell you how the feat is accomplished.  In tho fall, when the melons aro  gathered, or in this case, when tho  liost ones are in market, a few especially perfect specimens aro chosen.  Thero must be no breaks or outs in  the rinds.  Then thc housewife tukes a brush  un<l a good vnrnish, nnd goes enre-  fully ovor tho entire melon. When the  lirst cont is dry she applies a rccjnu  end if it seems necessary, a third.  The result is that tho melon is sealed  up so perfectly that it is preserved in  its original state until cut. It is, of  course kept in n cool place, (hough  not cold enough so there is any danger of freezing' The coating of varnish must not be broken, if it is, the  melon must bo used nt once.  Tho plan has beon proved a suooeat,  year after year. Try it, and surprise  your friends. ���I. D. 0., in tho Country (lenlleman.

Sundays included.  Glycerine is most, useful to one aiU  all. A teaapoonfu" ol glycerine added  to a pound of flour used in broad and  ��ike making is a great improvement,  for not only will the dough bo Boitor,  but tbe caUo of loaf will keep twab  much longer.  Then a teaipoonful of glycerins il  added tn every pound o! fruit used in  making jam will prevent crystallization and the jam will koop better.  For laundry  purposes, 1oo, glycol Ine  invaluable.   When washing flannels,  blankets   and   other woollens, add a  teaspoonful of the pure article    to    a  large pail of water.  Roots that have burden d through  gotting damp, or those that have beon  repaired, should be wiped over with  this liquid  nnd left  all night.  A teaspoonful of glycerine may lie  taken in eases of consumption.  AN ICE .MINK  Probably the strangest mine in the  world is to be found in Pennsylvania.  It is an ice mine which freezes in the  summer and thaws in (lie winter. Tt is  lit feet deep and from 10 to 12 feet in  diameter, up which pourB n peculiar  cold mist coming from openings found  all the way from the top to the bottom. As soon as warm weather arrives frost appears on the walls of the  shaft and soon tiny icicles form rapidly, until in the warmest weather  hugb icicles, often two feet thick,  reach from the top to the bottom of  the mine. Geologists can offer no explanation. ...Tho owner built a shed  over the mine but had to tear it clown  because as soon as the sun's rays were  cut off the ion melted. Ffcs normal  thaw sets in in October.  The war expenditure\.[ the'Dominion  is increnpug with t!io inu'tmse in t'.t  number of troops, and now reaches t  total of about a million doUulu a  day, of which $7J9.00u a day is beiug  expended in Canad.i.

Dear Sir,���  No doubt you are already aware that Thursday, September 14th has been fixed as the  date of tlie polling in the forthcoming Provincial Election.  As you will be called upon to vote for the South Okanagan Riding, I would like, as  candidate selected by Conservatives and a large body of independent business men and  farmers, to draw your at'eirtion to some of the more important considerations which make it  urgent and ner.essi.ry 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 the 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, 1 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 British Columbia during the past session adopted many measures of  far-reaching importance to the farmers of the valley, chief amongst w hich might be mentioned  the Agricultural Credits Act, affording much-needed financial assistance to the farmer who ia  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 1 regard as perhaps the most  pressing of all local problems, 1 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 of direct  representation in thc 1 louse, and it is essential especially at this critical time that a represents,  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 aay 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 1 have had an opportunity which has fallen to few of gaining  valuable experience and insight into the needs of the district, and 1 am willing to place this  experience at your disposal in looking after your interests should I be elected to the legislature.  During the 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 manner, 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 I certainly  would support the government in the highlv progressive policy which haa characterized the  past session, 1 am not a hidebound party politician, and would at all timet place the interests of  the district before any parly considerations.  Youra sincerely,  J. W. JONES.
