Ritchie -   3.2 "      "  One of Kelowng's pioneer  farmers passed awgv last Saturday in the person oi Mr.  William Crawford, of Crawiords  Kails, near Okanagan Mission.  Though in a sense not altogether  unexpected, the end came very  suddenly for the old gentleman,  who had reached ehe advanced  age of 73 years, for hi was discovered dead in his bed on oat-  urday morning, naving passu!  away peacefully some time during the night oi heart failure.  borne few months ago Mr.  Crawford happened a serious accident, failing in desrtndini:  some steps and striking the back  of his head. He was brought  into the Kelowna Hospital, and  it was feared for a lime ihal he  could not lc.owr. Oe did it-  cover, however, sufficiently: to  take up some il ihe lighter.  duties at the farm, for he had  been an active worker all his  life and could not be idle. Even  so late as the cveniog before his  death he had been out after the'  cows. One of them had given  him a little trouble, and it is  .thought that the acitation thus  produced may have been the  ultimate cause of his death. He  had suffered for years with heart  trouble, and there is no doubt  that his end was hastened by  his unfortunate accident, further  aggravated by another 7 fall  which he had a little over a  week ago. 6  i The funeral took place at the  Kelowna cemetery Sunday at  13 o'clock. Owing to the fact  |of the o.d gentleman's death  'not being generally known until  Monday, many were deprived of  ,the opportunity ot paying their  Tast respects to ?n old-time  'friend, but there was still a  number of old-timers and neighbors there to follow the remains  | to the cemetery. Thc pall-beaters were Mayor 1). W Sutherland, Messrs. E. R. Bailty, W.  D. Walker, D. W. Crowley, C.  S. Smith, and Max Jerkins.  Mr. William Crawford was  one of the earliest settlers of  the district, he and his family  having taken up land near the  'picturesque falls which bear his  name fully twetaty-five years  ago. His activities have also  included a sawmill, and Crawford's Mill has for vears furnished lumber for many of the  buildings in the district, and  j still continues to do so.  I Deceased was born in 1844 at  Lanarkshire, Scotland, and  'came to Canada about thirty-  years ago. He was an engineer  by trade and for a ti|ae worked  Sergt. George Kennedy  is Back from Front  Now Convalescent After Being  Three Times Wounded  Sergt. Geo. Kennedy is this  week busy receiving th'; congratulations of his friends on  his return Irom the front. Sergt..;  Kennedy, who came in on Tuesday's boat, limps considerably,  and has to walk with ihi aid of  a stick; his face, too, bears unmistakable signs of the terrible  experiences he has gone through,  but otherwise he is much the  same, and considers himself fortunate to get out without worse  damage.  Sergt. Kennedy nas been  through some of the 'ierccst of  the lighting experienced by tue  Canadians in France. He has  been wounded three times. The  lirst time he was in a building  near Ypres while the Germans  were shelling a church. One oi  the shells fell on the roof of his  shelter, and he escaped death  only by being blown clear of the  ruins. He was badly shaken,  however, and was some weeks  in hospital.  The second time he got cut up  with shrapnell, but it was ��� not  until September last that he  was knocked hors-de-combat bv  a shell which burst in his '.rench  sending fragments into various  parts of his body.  I He has had many narrow escapes, being at one time in a  camp in England when a Zeppelin dropped a bomb there, killing fourteen of his companion*".  After spending several months  in various hospitals in France  and England, he has been returned to Canada, landing three  weeks ago, and proceeding to  convalescent hospital in Vancouver, from where he is now in  Kelowna on a short leave.  Accompanying him to Canada  was another Kelowna man, Joe  Cowan, who wgs badlv crippled  up with rheumatism. He had  returned to this country only to  et his discharge, intending to  return to his old home in Eng-  and  in that capacity at Vanconver  in that city's, early days. In  1892 he moved to the Okanagan  and started farming, being as-  isted by his sons.  He is survived by a wife and  four sons, only ohe of whom.  William, is at present living at  home. Jock is away in the old  country serving with the Foresters; Alec (Scotty) who recently returned from overseas,  is away railroading to 'he  south, his wife coming up from  Penticton to attend the funeral;  Dave and his wife were also up  from the coast.

Proposed Scheme Has Many  Educational Advantages  The calendar of the University  of .British Columbia for 1917-18  gives a short outline of a proposed  scheme which has been approved  by the Senate and Faculties for the  establishment of local scholarships  for students entering the University.  The scheme will depend for its  success entirely on public support  and should be given careful consideration by all who are interested in the educational progress of  the province.  The proposed scheme is that  these scholarships should be founded by City or Municipal Councils,  School Boards, Corporations or  other local bodies or societies, or  private individuals, and that they  should be awarded by local committees. It is further recommended  that in making the award the financial circumstances, character and  intellectual promise of the candidates should be taken into consideration as well as their standing in  the matriculation examination.  The advantages of the scheme  are many. It gives to those interested in the cause of university  education an opportunity of helping it in a direct and effective way.  Scholarships established by the  liberality of private individuals, and  cily or county councils are common in Great Britain and the  United States. It is believed that  there are generous and public-  spirited citizens in our province  who will welcome a method by  which they can give practical expression to their sympathy and  goodwill.  The committee which should  award ihe scholarships would be  composed of local people such as  the chairman of school boards and  the mayor or reeves of cities, towns  or municipalities in the district.  Such a committee would interest  Itself in the people of the district  and encourage promising students  to look forward lo a University  career and would thus be itself an  educational influence of value.  The scholarships would excite  a healthful desire in the pupils of  our schools to excel not only in  scholarship but in qualities of character, and would stimulate an interest in higher education in the  community generally. Teachers  and parents especially will appreciate the importance of this.  Scholarships might, if it were so  desired, be restricted to students  who intended to follow some particular calling or profession. They  might be open, for example, only  to students proposing to equip  themselves for scientific research  or for positions requiring technical  skill in the industries of the district, as mining or agriculture. In  this way the district would probably reap the benefit of the scientific knowledge of some at least of  those whom it had helped to educate. In consequence of the im.  maturity of most of the pupils at  this stage, however, it is probably  desirable that in most cases the  award should be made to the most  deserving student irrespective of  the career he proposes to follow.  Lastly, a consideration of a more  general character may be referred  to. The need for men with a thorough scientific training is being  keenly felt in every sphere of enterprise ��� commercial industrial  and professional, in our province,  specialists in agriculture, mining,  Orders for  Local  Scouts  *aW pueparxd"  Kelowna Troop  Troop First; Self Last  MAGIC  BAKING POWDER  CONTAINS  NO ALUM  Okanagan Ambulance League  Report For June  The report for June shows receipts to the amount of $ 178.80,  with a balance from May of $22.62.  The expenses for the month were  $149.38, leaving a balance in hand  of $47.04.  During the month the following  articles have been sent away���37  shirts, 29 ties, 69 suits of pyjamas  and one odd coat, 24 vermin proof  suits, 156 parrs of socks, 24 hot  bottle covers, 4 pillow cases, the  total value of the month's work  being $295.70. The following articles have been donated : Mrs. G.  Stirling pair of socks, Mits Francis  pair of socks���and a bundle of  old linen.  The O.A.L. particularly wish to  thank the ladies responsible for  the management of the prisoners  of war teas for so generously sharing the profits with the Red Cross  and also all those ladies and gentlemen who worked so hard to  make the Red Cross concert such  a success.  Okanagan Mission have sent the  following articles during the past  month: 4 shirts, 18 suits of pyjamas, 20 pairs of socks; and the Benvoulin branch 8 vetmin proof suits,  7 suits of pyjamas and 8 pairs of  socks.  forestry, fisheries, fix., are urgently  required. Commerce with countries in South America and Eastern  Asia is being greatly extended,  and men with commercial training  and a knowledge of the languages  spoken in these countries will be  in increasing demand. In the professions, too, a high standard of  education must be maintained.  We should look to native sons to  fill these positions, and to the provincial university for the training  necessary to fit them for their various careers.  It may be thought that the present time, when the country's  energy and resources are taxed to  the utmost by the war, is inopportune for this appeal. It is a sufficient reply that Great Britain is  preparing to spend on education  in the coming year a sum larger  by $4,000,000 than in any previous year, and that in the United  States a conference of representatives of nearly six hundred of the  higher institutions of learning has  been held to consider means of  making these institutions more  effective during and after the war,  This conference is a part of the  national government machinery  and has made unanimous recommendations,  It is believed that the scheme  outlined, if successfully carried out  will help to make our provincial  university a more effective influence in the life of the province,  and it is therefore earnestly recommended to the active support  of all who are interested in the  cause of university education.  The expenses of a student boarding in the city, together with the  fees for the First Year in Arts  amount to at least $250,00.  It is suggested that scholarships  may range from a minimum of  $100 to $250 or over, per annum,  and may be made tenable for one  or two years.  Edited by Pioneer.   July 3rd. 1917  Orders by command for week  ending July 14th, 1917.  The troop will be in camp all of  this week and notice was given  last week of the two visitors' days,  &tc. During the absence of the  troop from town Mr. DuMoulin,  president of our local association,  will answer all inquiries in connection with scout matters.  We were very fortunate as a  troop when war broke out in August, 1914, that all our scouts were  so young, but the war goes on and  we all grow older. Assistant Cub-  Master Francis Buck, one of the  original members ol the original  troop, and who is still attached,  having heen loaned to the cubs  only, happens to be the oldest  scout in the troop, although he is  not yet 19, and has the great honor  of leading the van to enlist with  the Colours, having left Kelowna  Tuesday morning to join the artillery at Petewawa Camp.  Francis will be greatly missed  by the whole troop, as well as the  cubs, and we wish him Godspeed  and a quick return to us. We feel  sure that he will play a very material part in making a name for  the particular unit to which he may  be attached, in the same way that  he has so materially helped the  First Kelowna Troop. If he becomes as dangerous with the artillery he handles as he was with a  camera, we think Kaiser William  might as well commit "kari-kari"  at once and be done with it. The  Wolves won the Aquatic Shield  twice with him as their leader, and  he was also troop secretary for a  long time. He was a first-class  scout and held 10 proficiency badges. He had put in his name to  try for 7 more just a short time  ago. Au revoir, Francis, and keep  the troop posted on your address  and movements.  We also regret having to record  another loss to the troop in the  person of Scout Fred Whitehead,  who left Kelowna on Monday to  take up a position in the Bank of  Montreal, Princeton. He is only  16 years old so is away under age  for the Colors. He was also one  of the troop's o iginal members  and is a Second-Class Scout and  the holder of three proficiency  badges. There was a troop of  scouts in Princeton but they have  temporarily disbanded owing to  lack of officers. We wish Fred  every success in his new sphere  of work. ���  During the past two weeks the  following scouts passed their Carpenter's Badges before Mr. Mitchell of the manual training school  staff: Patrol Leaders G. Groves  and Calder, Seconds B. Davies and  L. Day and Scout Carl McKenzie.  Recruits Arthur Clarence and Clifford Cunningham also passed  their Tenderfoot tests and Were  invested as scouts on Friday evening last. They have both been  posted to the Wolf patrol.

In Saskatchewan 21,000 licenses  for motor cars were issued up to  the beginning of May, and it,is  estimated by the department that  the total would reach 30,000 before the end of the summer. In  1916 the number issued an ounted  to 15,000 and in 1915 to 9.000.  This extraordinary increase has  been accompanied by considerable activity in the business centres of the province.

Tiie Ford Is Economical  THE average man can  easily afford a Ford  car.   It it the most  inexpensive car to drive.  20 to 25 miles on a gallon  of gasoline is an everyday  occurence. 33 miles is frequently reported by Ford  owners. Yearly repair expenses of less than one dollar  are not unusual. The car is  light in weight, and tires give  more mileage on a Ford than  on any other car.  You can buy a Ford for  yourself and one for your wife  for the price of one car at  $1000. You can run both  Fords at about the same expense as for one large, heavier car.  You can always sell a 'used'  Ford at a good price. You  have to accept a big reduction for a " used " larger car.  Go and take a ride in the  1917 model. See how comfortable it is. And stylish,  too���stream line effect, tapered hood, crown fenders, beautiful finish. You need one  for. business. Your wife and  children need one for pleasure and health.

The fact is also cm-  phasiied that all butter  in such paekagea must  baotthefullnetweight  of siiteen ounces, and  in default of same a  fins of from tlO to $30  for each offence is im.  posed. Whey butter  must be so labelled  even when mind with  dairy butter, and dairy  butter retains ita 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:  200  500  1000  ���*  2.00  3.15  4.50  These prices include Both lhep  Paper, which is Uie 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 oft. Unfortunately there is no guarantee against further increases, indeed, they are more than likely.  Kelowna Record Thursday, Julv 5th, 1917.  KELOWNA   UtCOftS  PAGE  Drowning Accident at  C. P.

Miss  Page, Miss Thompson and Miss  Lillian Thompson left for the coast,  and Miss Davis for Dewdney.

The Y.P.S. of the Methodist  church held a social at Mr. and  Mrs. Dalgleish's home on Friday  nighl last. A good crowd of young  people attended and the evening  seemed to pass all too quickly.  The ice cream social held by  the Presbyterian friends last Friday was also well attended though  the weather did not assist very  much. A substantial sum was  added to the church funds as a  result of the affair.  At the school closing last week  a pleasant incident took place  when Miss Quinn and Miss Faris  the retiiing teachers, were presented with a volume of Tennyson's  poems and an album for snapshots  respectively.  The regular meeting of the Women's Institute will be held at Mrs.  Gay's on Thursday, July I 2th. Refreshments will be provided and  the proceeds given to the Y.M.C.A.  fund.

One hundred  and thirty five tickets were sold in  town for the trip and those who  went report lhat things went off  very satisfactprily. Our neigh-  hours at the foot of the lake are  slaving with their annual sports  and improving every year.  Kelowna racing men were down  in (orce and carried off several of  the prizes. Ike Chamberlin's "Beauty Silk" won the " Free-for-all,"  through his good luck, or rather  Jack Cameron's bad luck had something to do with this result, for  Jack's "Local Option" dropped  out in the third heat with a bad  sprain. Ike's "Cora Brown " won  the 2.25 pace. Victor Borree carried off the 14.2 pony race and  second place in the half-mile repeat.  Kelowna was also represented  by a baseball team team but they  did not shine to any extent. Pen-  tlcton beat Kelowna in the morning game, while Oroville outclassed  Penticton in the afternoon.  There was a big attendance from  the south as well as from the north  and Penticton was gay wilh flags  and streamers.   4   Francis Buck left Tuesday fur  lhe training camp at Petewana,  Ont., with the intention of enlisting  in a branch of the artillery service.

You hear  a lot about the etars of England who  have fought and died, and of the stars  from the States who have started.  But neither country has given a greater proportion than Canada has to tha  cause ot orushlng the Hun. No one  sport in Canada has given a greater  number to the firing line than football. Practically every football player of note haa gone overseas, and  many or the best have already been  killed or badly wounded. The list ot  the dead includes Russell Brltton, of  Kingston, the star quarterback of the  Argonauts and one of the best that  Canadian sport haB ever knowp. Gordon Southern, of Hamilton, one of the  Canadian all-stars, Is another who  has been killed In action. At the rata  established so far there will be very  few football stars left when the war  ends and sport comes back to Us own.  Canadian football, contrary to general opinion, Is very like our own.  They play a lot of soccer and Rugby  here, but, In the main, football in Canada means just about what it does in  the United Statea. One of the first  to go waB Brio McDonald of Fredericton. McDonald, in addition to being a star football player, was also  a noted sprinter and famous all-around  athlete. He carried out the original  Idea of the football entries, which was  to rise through valor or fall on the  field. In this case, McDonald has survived to rise from the rank of lieutenant to that of colonel, and It would be  no surprise to see him soon promoted  to the rank of brigadier-general for  distinguished service and military efficiency. His record at the front has  been even greater aud liner than his  record here in sports, where he was  regarded much as the U.S. of A. would  look upon a Ned Malum or a John Kll-  patrlck.  The Caae of Longboat  Most of those mentioned are unknown tn the States. But there will  be few below the southern side ot  the Canadian border who have forgotten Tom Longboat, the Indian marathon runner, and his manager, Tom  Flanagan. Longboat Is still remembered as one of the greatest marathon  runners of all time. He has put the  long distance efficiency into effect as  a dispatch carrier on foot, where he  Iirb done remarkable work and has  been mentioned more than once for his  daring, stamina and efficiency. Tbe  Idea of an Indian dispatch runner  proves again Hint this war Ib not entirely modern in its make-up, despite  the it-centimetres, the U-boats and  the Zeppelins. Longboat today ia  running greater distances at greater  sped than he ever used in his beat  miiviithon days, to judge from reports  th .1 have been received from tbe  tr lit  l'ercy Molsou, McGlll's star sprinter, and Frank Lukeman, of Montreal,  are other track men who have done  distinguished services. White Victor  Unclinuiin, president of the Montreal  Athletic Association, was killed at the  front while going over the top with  the Fighting 13th. He was one of the  hest known sportsmen In Canada. Ted  Savage, uulsido wing and captain of  the championship Montreal football  team, Is still another who has render-  ad brilliant servioe In Franc*.  These names are mentioned to show  what Canadian sportsmen hare done  and as an Indication of what famous  names In American sport trom the  United States will accomplish. There  la no football team In Canada, no traok-  team, that hasn't loat enough star  players to break up the organisation  and that hasn't, contributed the finest  sort of fighting material���game, resourceful, ulert, and always to bo  found on top of the job, making good  or remaining on the field of No Man's  Land, with the game over for all time.  uh-Afraat ol  Dominion  w. w, com,  DrDD.IT Hlsis.sc ol ths Interior.
