 MM*64?  191 l  VOL. IX.   NO. 35.  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, JULY 19, 1917.-4 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  Plenty of Help Ready  For Fruit Picking  Mrs. J. C. Kemp  Sending  Parties ot Girls Boys  Mrs. J. C. Kemp, president of  the B.C. Consumers' League and  Fruit Harveste s' Bureau, which  has been taking up actively at the  coast the matter of supplying help  for the fruit districts, including the  Okanagan, was in town last weekend with the object of gaining  first-hand information as to local  conditions and possible requirements, In the same way Mrs.  Kemp has beert veiling various  other points in the Okanagan.  According to Mrs. Kemp there  seems to be no lack of help to be  had, large numbers of both boys  and girls having already registered  with the Bureau and were awaiting  their turn to be sent up country.  The chief difficulty appears to be  a coming to a definite understanding as to the work awaiting them,  and also as to the accommodation  which can be provided.  A start has already been made  by the K.L.O. Co., which has some  sixteen girls and eight boys at  work, whilst half a dozen more  came in Tuesday to work on the  Belgo. orchards. Mr. Bulman has  also undertaken to provide work  for about fifteen and the Growers'  Exchange und Cannery are negotiating.  Of course, the whole thing is  somewhat in the nature of an experiment, but according to accounts  great success seems to have attended the movement in other pail* of  the province, and. the boys and  girls have done very satisfactory  wo'V  Boy Scouts Had Good Time  in Camp  The Boy Scouts came back from  camp Saturday afternoon. The  ferry scow went down to Cedar  Creek about noon and found the  boys well packed up and ready  for departure. In an incredibly  short space of time the personal  belongings of the Scouts and the  camp equipment were loaded on  to the barge, and with cheers for  everything and everybody, they  pulled out for Kelowna, leaving on  the beach a line of some fourteen  of the Wolf Cubs who had just ar-  rived by road to spend a few days  at the same spot. The Cubs were  in charge of Mr. Jas. Gordon, the  Cub Master, and their few days  camping experience was a great  success. They returned Tuesday  afternoon sun-burnt and happy  and busy with questions as to when  the next camp would be. The  Hon. and Rev, T. R. Heneage acting commissioner for B. C. who  had spent the first two weeks with  the Scouts in camp also remained  over with the cubs.  According to German reports,  the American warships convoying  the firat expeditionary forces des  troyed four of their latest lype sub  marines.  A cablegram from the Chinese  embassy announces that Chan  Hsun and his entire monarchical  adherents surrendered on July 12  Less than twelve soldiers and civilians were injured. Complete or  der now prevails and the Republican party has resumed control.  The Westinghouse interests at  Pittsburg are teeking 1000 men  who are willing to sign an agree  ment to enter a new plant to be  built for the manufacture of war  munitions by a secret process, and  remain imprisoned for ten months,  all communication with the outside  to be shut off. Men who have been  approached were told that the  plant will manufacture a powerful  implement of war, and the secret  must be guarded until the govern  ment sees fit to make the details  public. Only those workmen and  officials who will be engaged in  the the production of the new  weapon will know its character  and the detail of manufacture.  More Kelowna Names Added  to List of Killed  Alex Thayer, who was rrpoi'led  killed last Friday, was anolhei  Kelowna boy aJJed to tlie lengthening honor i..11, ��� A son ol Dr. S.  W. Thayer, until recently veteiin-  ary surgeon lie.e, bul now ol lhe  B. C. Horse, Vernon, the young  fellow was well known here, having  attended school for some time.  He was onlv nineteen years ofa(jc.  and left Kelowna.with ill.; 172ml  last fall. ' He is a btolher of Jack  Thayer of the Royal Bank. Mrs.  Thayer and the rest of the boys  are now in   Alberta.  News has been received at the  Mission through the medium of a  letter from Mis. G. B. Ford in England toiler mother Mrs. Thompson,  that Lawrence H. Garnett, a young  rancher of the district, has been  killed in action. This is the second  time he has been repotted killed,  and though it is that hoped it may  again prove to be wrong, the writ-  of the letter is very confident  about it. Garnett was a young man  in his early twenties, and caii.e  out from England aome few years  ago to take up an orchard near  the old school at the Mission when  the war broke out he joined the  B. C. Horse but later transferred to  the Imperial forces, in the artillery.  French Soldiers and Their Prize  Bad Bush Fire Does Damage  at South Kelowna  Cn Tuesday, morning a fire started lip on the South Kelowna Land  Co's lands, near Mr. Jock Sliilings  place and as everything ,vas dead  dry at this time, rapidly spread until it became a serious problem,  and although now believed to be  under control it is not even yet  extinguished. The fire broke out  from some unknown cause about  nine or ten o'clock but it was into  the afternoon before many of the  residents realized i's danger,' nnd  by that time it had secured a good  hold. A band ol fighters however,  got out, and by beating plowing,  and turning in of irrigation water, a  labor which occupied themthrough  the night and until well into  Wednesday morning, at length  managed to surround the fire and  curtail any further chance of  spreading. Aa it was a considerable area was burnt out.  Rutland News  (From oer own onmsnoarlsBI).'  Earl Hardie has the pleasant job  of taking a bunch ot girls each  day from Rutland to engage in  cherry picking on the K.L.O.  Last Thursday the Women's Institute met on the lawn af Mrs.  Gay's and held a very enjoyable  meeting. Refreshments were provided and sold for the benefit'of  the Overseas Y.M.C.A., realizing  $4.30: Mrs. W. D. Wilson and  Mrs. W. A. Fleming gave talks on  "Child Training," while Miss Annie Gay gave ah interesting reading "With the" Land Girls," being  ing the experiences of girl farmers  in England.  The Rutland ditch was temporarily put out of business Tuesday  afternoon by a tree which fell  across the trestle work supporting  the flume near the headgate. A  party of workers at once went out  and after about five hours strenuous work got  the  water running  again.  '/  Mrs. Ford was down to Kelowna yesterday to meet her sister  and two nieces from Medicine  Hat who are coming to stay with  her for a short time.  The net proceeds from from the  sale of ice cream at the joint Presbyterian and Methodist Sunday  school picnic held July 4th at Mission creek, amounting to $ 17.35  has been donated to the Y.M.C.A.  fund.  The city of Merritt tax rate is 35  mills on the dollar.  French soldiers with a bomb.thrower captured from the enemy  Sergt. Kennedy Honored  at Smoker  In honor of Serg. Geo. Kennedy,  who had to leave again for the  coast after his short stay here, a  "smoking concert" was organized  and successfully carried out at the  Aquatic Pavilion last Thursday  evening. The night was a delightful one and the balconies were  filled with people whose chief de-  siie probably was to hear Serg.  Kennedy's story of his experiences since leaving Kelowna i'or  the front.  Naturally reserved and modest  about himself, he did not treat his  hearers to any fluent oratory, but  his .ecital nevertheless was one of  intense interest. He began by  sketching the experiences cf the  draft of which he formed part,  from the time of leaving Kelowna,  the trip across to England and the  period of training there.  Speaking of the life in the trenches he made many aspects of the  operations both offensive and defensive clear by means of a blackboard and chalk. His own part in  the fighting and the circumstances  of his wounding he was inclined  to treat lightly, but it was not difficult to realize that some of his  experiences must have left a deep  impression on him.  The chair was taken by Mr. J.  W. Jones, M.P.P., who spoke of  the splendid loyalty of so many  of the local boys who had offered  their lives for their country. An  interesting musical programme was  rendered by local artistes.  Mrs. Lang and' daughter who  have been staying with the Harvey's for some time past, left Mon-  for Indian Head, being accompanied to Penticton by Mrs. Jas.  Harvey, jr.  Owing to the closeness of the  voting upon the bill to extend the  life of the Federal parliament, a  general .election seems now almost  unavoidable. Premier Borden has  made formal announcement that  the request to the Imperial authorities to extend the term will not be  proceeded with. It is not probable  that the election will take place before October or November. How  this will effect the Conscription  movement is not yet clear,  The crop reports from agents of  the Saskatchewan Co-operative  Elevator Company show a better  outlook, vet farmers think crops  will not be nearly as good as last  year. Rain is badly needed and  spring conditions are telling against  the grain now. The C. P. R. croy  report describes conditions at  points along the railway in the  Saskatoon district as good and fair.  Pte. Symonds and Tpr.  Bingley Home Again  Pte. Symonds was expected on  Thursday afternoon, but owing to  delay failed to appear. Conse  quently when he came in Friday  there was not the usual demonstration. However he is just as wel<  come as if all the whistles in town  had blown. He is here only for a  visit at present from the hospital  where he is quartered at Vancouver, having not yet recovered from  th'V bullet wound through the  shoulder which ended his soldiering for the present.  Tpr. Bingley, who came in Sat  urday and was given an enthusiastic welcome, was at one time  engaged with the Belgo-Canadian  Co. both during construction of the  ditch and later as water bailiff, He  left Kelowna early in the war and  has seen much service in France  chiefly as a despatch rider. His  career in this line was?ended by a  shell which laid him in hospital  with a broken leg. Tpr. Bingley  has come back to Kelowna to take  a position in the office of the Ok.  Loan and Investment Co.  National Holstein Sale Makes  World Record* Prices  The National Holstein-Friesian  Sale Co. of New England has set a  new record for dairy cattle auctions. No previous sale haa closely approached the prices paid for  individuals, both male and female; j  never befoie has the average of a  large sale rivalled the new record  set: and no other auction has witnessed an equal enthusiasm and  confidence in the prices paid. It  is doubtful whether breeders have  ever before paid so high a tribute  to the judgment of a man in selecting animals for auction as in this  sale, to Mr. H. A. Moyer, sale  director.  At Worcester, Mass., June 7 and  8, following the annual meeting of  the Holstein-Friesian Assn. of  America, the company sold 143  Holsteins for a total of $296,470,  an average of $2,073.21. Fifty-  nine head brought $1,000 or more  each and averaged $4110 50.  Fourteen of these were bulls and  averaged $7,712.50; the 45 females  lacking but $10 on their average of  reaching $3,000. A bull ralf raised the average ofthe 143 head  $360 and made a sale record for all  dairy breeds by selling for $53,200,  the highest price ever paid for a  dairy bull.  The highest price ever paid for  a dairy cow, $18,300, was given  for a four-yesr-old; and only exceeded the sum given for a two-  year-old by $300. Phenomenal as  the prices for individuals seem,  when the high three average close  to $30,000, the remarkable fiigure  in the list of sales is the average.  One animal or three cannot make  a sale���an average of more than  $2,000 for nearly 150 does. "That  average is a price," to quote an  auctioneer, "for a good many of  them to shoot at." When* the  averages and totals had been calculated and the last animal led off  the sawdust, the unanimous voice  of the breeders present could have  seen expressed in five words, "This  sale makes Holstein history."  German Vessels Destroyed  By British Fleet  A despatch from Ymuiden says  that four German ships have been  sunk by British destroyers ih the  North Sea, four captured, three  stranded and three forced to return to Rotterdam.  Since Saturday seventeen German steamers have sailed from  Rotterdam, three at one time and  fourteen at another, the despatch  says. Of the first group one, the  Magdalena Blumenthal, 1535 tons  gross, was wrecked off Zandvoort.  Of the second group, owing to the  action of British destroyers, not  one vessel was able to proceed,  eight being captured pr sunk and  three succeeding in putting back  to Rotterdam. Of the three remaining steamers which were  stranded, two were afire.  This is the second incident recently reported of German merchant vessels being captured in  the North Sea. A previous group  of shipe were en route to Scandinavia for German supplies, The  recent falling off in Scandinavian  sailings, due to heavy losses of  ships, and desire of ship owners  to save their vessels by keeping  them in port, may be forcing Germany to take great chances to get  much needed supplies.  Dr. Cook of Calgary, a returned  medical officer who has seen duty  overseas, is staying with his friends  in town.  Millions Made in Bacon Trust  Revelations as to the millions  made by the packing houses in  Canada dnring the last two years  since the spectacular rise in prices  are given in a report just presented  to the Minister of Labor by Mr.  W. F. O'Connor. A profit of  $5,000,000 last year on bacon is  declared to be the share of the  company headed by Sir Joseph  Flavelle, head of the Imperial  Munitions Board. The other big  company which shared for the  most part the bacon monopoly of  Canada, namely Matthews, Black-  well, Ltd., cleaned up about a  million and a-half.  Mr. O'Connor says:  " The basis of a monopoly ir.  this commodity existed before the  war. In 1914, these two companies  exported^nore than half the total  bacon exported by Canada. Their  control of the bacon situation has  been much strengthened since. In  1916 the two companies together  sold 140,000,000 pounds out of  151,000,000 pounds sold by all  the cold storage companies in  Canada."

Annual Regatta Will  Be Held August 9  Effort Being Made to Get the  Youngsters Interested  The annual holiday carnival in  the park und rquatic buildings will  be held this year on Thursday,  August 9th. Only one day this  year so make a note of it and bring  in all the children in the country  on that day and make it a real  big picnic.  There will be sports in the park  in the morning ; races of all sorts,  running, hurdling and jumping;  amusing races and ball games.  Each district in the neighbourhood  will be invited to enter a competitor for a series of events on land  and in the morning and again in  the afternoon when the water  sports will be held in fronl of the  grand stand as usual. A special  prize will be offered for district  competition. Excursions will be  tun from lake points aa usual. In  the evening there will be a carnival and dance in the pavilion.  This is to be lhe great Children's  Day of the year and the regatta  committee hope that all children  will be able to come and enjoy the  bathing and boating. There ia no  finer beach in the world and we  should like to see it crowded on  that day.  Programmes of the games and  sports will be issued soon and you  will then be able to see what to  enter for.  Big Picture at Theatre on  "The Whip," one of Mr. Arthur  Collins' most successful dramas at  Old Drury, London, Eng., is to be  the attraction at the Kelowna Theatre, on Wednesday, July 25. This  spectacular drama is replete with  thrills and wonderful stage effects.  The title of the play is the name  of a race horse which is the centre  of the plot. It is entered to run in  the famous Saratoga handicap, and  for this reason the enemies of the  owner and a bookmaker attempt  the destruction of the thoroughbred, but in spite of all their efforts  "The Whip' with its owner's daughter on its back runs under the wire  the winner. The story is a combination of love and romance of  the race track and shows some  most original scenes that will make  an audience sit up and take notice.  There are several climaxes each  one more exciting than the preceding one, but perhaps the most  realistic one is produced when the  Saratoga express, running at a high  ���le of speed, crashes inlo a boxcar containing "The Whip" which  has been cut from the express by  the adventurer. The engine and  the cars fall over an embankment  a twisted mass but the horse is  rescued none the worse for its adventure.  Another exciting scene is a race  between a train and a motor car,  which ia eventually won by the  big racer.  Those who are fond of horses  and dogs should see thia picture.  There is a fox hunt from the start  to the finish. There is a real horse  show with some of the finest driving horses on this continent on  exhibition and a very realistic scene  of the famous Saratoga track itself.  A bill was introduced into Congress last Friday providing for an  immense aeroplane fleet and appropriating $640,000,000 to obtain  it.  Berlin's bank clerka have set an  example in self-sacrifice. Aiding  in the movement for economy in  leather, the clerka have discarded  shoes. Scores o) barefooted individuals are seen: on the principal  streets, gingerly stepping along,  saving their feet as much as possible. The stores are selling wood  en sandals. Leather is exceedingly  scarce.  Evidence that millions in German gold are still being poured  into effective propaganda work  among Ameticans has been laid  before the slate department by a  statesman of international reputation.  Minister of Lands  Here Tomorrow  Word has just been received  that the Hon. T. D. Paitullo,  minister of lands, and Mr. Wm.  Young, comptroller of water  rights, are to be in Kelowna  tomorrow (Friday) to go into  , irrigation matters. . PAGE FOUR  KBLOWNA   RECORD  Thursday, July iqth, 1917.  .

Some of the troubles with regard  to irrigation which have been predicted and discussed time after  time during the last year or two  are at last beginning to threaten  and to-day this section of the Okan  agan is face to face with a water  shortage which might easily prove  disastrous.  The tropical heat which has  been experienced during the past  few rlavs has further aggravated  matters and it is reported that already hundreds of acres of growing crops have been badly damaged and in many cases ruined  through the impossibility of getting sufheieat water on to them.  The situation locally is critical in  the extreme and somebody will  have to bestir themselves and that  quickly. Farmers of Ellison, Rutland and Glenmore especially are  becoming uneasy, and unless relief  comes can see their water supply  cut off before the irrigation season  is half over, a condition which  would spell absolute ruin for many.  Word also comes from Naramata  that they are in even worse shape,  and that the gieatest alarm is felt  throughout the entire district.  It is not that there was any shortage of water, though the supply  did fall short of expectations. The  trouble is that there has been a  vastly increased demand for water  from all sides, both on account of  the hot drying winds and intense  heat which has been experienced  and also because of the unusual  effort which has been put forward  to increase acreage under cultivation and to boost production. The  greatly increased acreage put into  onions, tomatoes, grain, corn, alfalfa and other crops demanding  plentiful irrigation has been one  of the strongest features of this  year's farming activities, and all  would have been well if the various systems had been adequate to  the demand. This they have not  been, and unless rain comes soon  it is feared that the bountiful crops  which have promised so well will  be reduced to a mere fraction of  what they should be.  It seems to be apparent to everyone except those in Victoria who  haye power to deal with the matter, that government ownership  and the provision of greatly in.  creased reservoir storage facilies is  the onlv real solution. It is an utter  absurdity that only a few weeks  after being threatened with disaster and damage through floods  and high water in the creeks, we  should be faced with dried-up  water courses and general drought,  The building of proper reservoirs  to hold back some of this surplus  water which now runs to waste  would pay handsomely in increased production.  It is reported that a new committee has been appointed to visit  the Okanagan to inquire into irrigation conditions. This is very  good, but to put it mildly we are  getting a little tired of these investigations. What we want now is  action. If the numerous commissions and investigators have done  their work in the past the government must alresdy be in possess-  Orders for  Local  Scouts  "Bt PREPARED'  Kelowna Troop  Troop Firat; Self Last  Edited by Pioneer. July 17th, 1917  Orders by command for week  ending 28th July, 1917.  -  The last order given at camp  was lhat every scout's camp diary  and rough sketch map should be  handed in by Monday, the 16th  instant. This order has not been  obeyed by any member ofthe troop  with two exceptions, these two exceptions being the two latest  recruits. We refer you all to the  7th Scout Law once again, and  trust that it will not be necessary  to refer to this matter again.  As we left camp on Saturday,  the cubs came in under Cub  Master Gordon. Commissioner  Heneage remained with them and  they returned home today. We  believe that every scout in the camp  enjoyed it very much and it was  undoubtedly a great success.  Beforo giving a liat of winners of  the various competitions, we would  like to express our thanks to our  many friends who assisted us in  various ways particularly in connection with transportation and  donations of fruit vegetables etc.  Owing to the hurry with which  everything arriving in a car was  gathered up into the camp, we  have not got some of the names of  the kind donors of different things.  We wish to assure them, however  that everything was greatly enjoyed and we are sorry that our friends  could not have heard the frequent  cheers which were given them  while their gifts were appreciated  around the camp fire.  We first of all have Mr.  DuMoulin to thank for making arrangements as to the cars coming  out to camp and also for coming  out himself; also the following  gentlemen for making trips to camp  with parcels etc.: Dr.' Gaddes,  Messrs. Marshall, Rowcliffe, Graham, Lionel Taylor, Copeland and  Day. We also thank Mr. Hayman  for hia courtesies in transporting  us to and from camp and assisting  us with his truck car to take home  some of the camp material. It is  hard to have a more comfortable  tent in camp than the Bell, and  we are very much indebted to  Colonel Perry of the B. C. Horse  for the loan of 5 of these tents,  The big head quarters tent given  to us by the Kelowna boys of the  172nd Battalion, was a splendid  help to us.  We wish lo thank Mr. Sutherland  and Mr. Poole for very generous  donations of bread; Dr. Keller for  2 dozen bottles of pop and the  loan of his boat; Mr. and Mrs. W.  D. Walker for vegetables and cake;  Mr. Renfrew for vegetables; Mr.  McKenzie and Spall for cherries  and Mr. McKenzie for vegetables;  Mr. Cunningham for the loan of  cooking utensils and stove; the B.  C. Evaporators Ltd. for evaporated  vegetables; Messrs. P. B. Willits &  Co. for fitting out our first aid outfit with drugs bandages etc., Dr.  Knox for lemons ana sweets; Mr.  R. A. Pease for vegetables; Mr' H.  Bartholomew for magazines; Mr.  and Mrs. DuMoulin for a big box  dough nuts; Mr. Crichton for pop;  Miss Dora Pease for jam; Mr. F. A.  Taylor for cherries; Mrs. Boyre for  chocolates; Mr. E. Weddell for  cherries; Mr. Hector Johns for hay;  The Okanagan Loan te Investment  Co. for camp site; Mrs. Cameron  for sweets and pork and beans; Mr.  Alister Cameron for his services in  connection with the railroad trip;  Mr. Day for the loan of a horse.  Sixteen boys took part in the  trip to the railroad, together with  Mr. Cameron and the scoutmaster.  We will doubtless hear more of  this from some of the diaries when  they are handed in. Commissioner  Heneage was good enough to offer prizes for the patrol having the  best tent, kit and grounds etc.,"  during the whole of camp, and also  for the -best all round scout, under  15 and over 15, to be determined  ROYAL  YEAST CAKES  HAS BEEN  CANADA'S  FAVORITE  YEAST FOR  MORE THAN  30 YEARS  MAKEPEPFFCT  'B RE ftp  MADE IN CANADA ?  by vote of the scouts. The tent  inspection was won by the Beaver  patrol under P. L. Calder, with  three other patrols all tying for  second place, a remarkable result;  only ten points separated the winning patrol from the others, so you  will see that competition was very  keen.  The tents were inspected daily  and the patrol winning the inspection for that day was entitled to  the flag. The voting for the best  scout resulted in scouts F. Sinkin-  son and L. Gaddes tying for first  place under fifteen, and patrol  leaders James Calder and Godfrey  Groves tying for first place over  fifteen. The Tenderfoot work  competition was won by the Eagles  under P, L. Snashall; the Second  Class Ambulance competition by  the Eagles and Beavers tying for  first place; the Second Class Signalling was won by the Beavers,  and the First Class Ambulance by  the Wolves and Otters under P.Ls.

It ii the most  inexpensive car to drive.  20 to 25 miles on a gallon  of gasoline is an every-day  occurence. 33 miles is frequently reported by Ford  owners. Yearly repair expenses of less than one dollar  are not unusual. The car ia  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 cat at  $1000. You can run both  Fords at about the same expense as for one large, heavier car.  You can always sell ��� '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 ia. 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.

Mr. W, Miller, inspector of bridges and wharves for the C.P.R.,  was in town yesterday making arrangements for the rebuilding of  the wharf. Owing to the very bad  state of the old structure it has  been thought desirable to make as  earl) a start as possible, and it is  likely that as soon as the rush of  the fruit shipments is over a start  will be made.  As nearly always happens when  the hot weather cornea, the discomfort of the high temperature has  been added to considerably during the week by the heavy smoke  which has pervaded the atmosphere, drifting in from several big  fires which are reported to be rag-  in different directions. A heavy  pall of smoke has been rolling up  from the south all the week, the  result, it is said, of big bush fires  over the American border. Fires  have also been reported from the  Wood's Lake district.  An uld-time minstrel evening and a  revival nf plantation songs delighted  a tent full of Butte amusement seekers who attended last night's  Old Virginia Minstrel Show. A  company of genuine colored men  furnished fun galore and an entertainment which, in these days,  is a refreshing novelty. It has  often been said that there is no minstrel like the real darky himself. He  �� as keen to see the fun possibilities  in bltrlejQUelftg his race as is the  white man.

Clifford A. Scott, one of  the Kelowna boys now at the front:  "The other night a number of  old Kelowna boys got together  and we had a great time, each one  telling hia experiences since coming to France (of course some of  the yarns were kind of "fishey").  Among the crowd were Colin McMillan, Jack White, Jack Wilson,  Hiram Willits, August Casorso,  Rube Archibald, Jack Paret,  George Leggett, Jack Ferguson,  Lloyd McDonald, J. J. Mills.  George Curts, Ewin McLennan  and two or three others. I met  Graham of the Bank of Montreal  a few davs ago, just before his bait  (the 72nd) went into the line, It  was pretty tough luck on George  Packer and Walter Raymer, wasn't  it?���getting killed on their first  trip in the line.  Now I think I've said enough  about France, and how is everything in Kelowna ^-suppose it's  kind of quiet this summer, nevertheless it would look good to this  chicken, and it will be good enough  for me if I am spared to get back."

The regular army and the special reserve had  been extinguished, the territorial divisions were lunging on tu their sectors of the Hue by the skin of their  teeth; the frontage of each division  was much too large; Amsterdam was  dully sending news of an Impending  German offensive; youngsters with a  few weeks' training were rushed out  to us to (1)1 up the gaps consequent  on Hill 60 and St. Jullon and were  very far from satisfactory, and at  the time of our relief we had held  the line at St. Biol without any kind  of rest for nfty-slz days.  Better Than Expeetsd  The number of wooden crosses In  our little graveyard behind the Ros-  endsl Chateau had increased, with  disconcerting regularity, although  nothing in the way of vigorous tactics had been employed by either  side. Few can marvel at our Joy on  hearing the news, "I have seen Kitchener's Army In the flesh." '  A few days later I had the opportunity of visiting Ballleul. I saw, and  was mightily Impressed. Home papers, containing the opinions of great  generals, had prepared us for something ratker better than the ordinary.  While hoping for the best we were inclined to be skeptical, but I confess  that our hopes were more than realized. It was a Highland Division I saw  first���stout, brawny lads, the Highlanders of history minim their beards.  Clean as new pins, they stepped the  streets of Northern France with the  air of conquerors, and saluted their  officers In the manner of guardsmen  on Constitution Hill.  Saluting and Discipline  From time to time one reads of a  desire to abolish or curtail this military obeisance. It is considered Prussian, denounced aa Zabernfsm, de"  grading to the soldier, undeslred by  the officers themselves, Irksome, undemocratic, and all the rest. I cannot agree. Tn me, there iB a distinct  connection between the right hand  salute and the successful attack on a  Qernian trench. It is the foundation  of discipline, and some more discipline In our land would help us  along mightily. Most of the battalions  of Kitchener's Army had it, and they  were proving its worth at Loos a very  few weeks later.  K0RMANN STOOD TEST  When I.ieut.-Col. Itorke was ordered  to proceed overseas with whatever  nucleus of tire 248th (Qrey Country,  Ontario) UiiHulion it had been possible to raise, lie found he had nine  lieutenants und only needed three. He  culled tlie nine lieutenants in, laid the  facts before them, and asked If any  OT ttteill  would go nB privates     l.tmu.  Claude Kormann stepped forward.  He said he liilrl recruited the boys  from Hanover to go to tlie war, and  he proposed to go with them, if not  as a lieutenant, then as a private.  "Lieut. Kormann," said Col. Rorke,  "you go overseas as one of my officers." i.���  SYNOPSIS Oi* COAL MINING  REGULATIONS  tjoai milling riahta of tba Domioioa ia Manitoba, Saskatchewan aad Allvrin. tbs Vuko  Torriionr. tba Norlbwsal Tsrritoriss. aad rr  ortton ol tha Provisos ol Mulish Columbia,  rnv bo Ismsad (or a tarn ot twsntv-ono \sarn  1 ao susnnal rsntal ol gl aa acre.
