 Kclotona lUtortu  \A  VOL. IX.   NO. 23.  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA. THURSDAY, APRIL 26, 1917.-4 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  "Jarsey" Goes for a Swim  The aquatic adventures of Messrs. Casorso Bros.' well-known  Percheron stallion "Jarsey," created  a brief excitement Saturday on the  wharf. The animal was to be shipped to Penticton via the s.s. Sicamous, and he was being taken over  the gangway on to the boat. He  was, apparently, an unwilling traveller, and strongly resisted all attempts to persuade him to cross  the narrow gangway on to the  boat.  After several trials he was blindfolded and with some difficulty induced to make a few steps forward on the gangway. In his  struggles, however, he missed his  footing and breaking through the  side-rail dropped into the lake between the boat and the wharf. He  started to swim out but scared perhaps by the crowd he went round  the boat. When he reached the  freight entrance on the far side he  made an unsuccessful attempt to  board the boat there, but rolled  backward and Went under. For a  time it was feared he would be  lost but finally he .got his head up  again and swam round the stern  of the boat, getting ashore behind  the Growers' Exchange feed warehouse.  He was much exhausted with  his unusual exercise, but fortunately not much the worse. No further  attempt was made to get him  aboard that day and he was taken  back to his stable where he was  given a good rubbing down.     ,  Tuesday he and his equally  handsome son were londed into a  car and made the journey by barge.  "Jarsey" is*a valuable pedigreed  animal imported from France, and  ' his drowning would have meant  the loss of some fifteen hundred  dollars to his owners.  Gen. von Bissing, German gov.  ernor-general in Belgium died U st  Wednesday.  His Lordship Bishop De Pencier,  who has long been absent in  France with the Canadian troopa,  arrived in Halifax Friday.  It is officially announced that the  American navy is "rapidly taking  over the patrol which the British  and French vessels established on  the American coast."  Some five thousond or more coyote skins have been shipped out of  Ashcroft this winter, the bounty  on which alone amounted to  $15,000.  The new government in Russia  will not negotiate a separate peace  for Russia as a result of overtures  that have been made by German  and Austrian Socialist representatives, according to information  reaching Washington.  Serious rioting took place in  Constantinople last week on the  occasion of the return of a detachment of wounded soldiers from the  Mesopotamian front. A mob as-  ' sembled around the military hos  pital, hissing the German officers,  throwing missiles through the windows, and clamoring for food.  Two German destroyers were  sunk, and a third possibly destroyed when the enemy's vessels attempted to raid Dover, the admiralty announced Saturday. Five  German destroyers attempted the  raid, Two British patrol ships attacked. The fight ensuing lasted  only'five minutes.  Premier Brewster has promised  that he will lose no time in appointing a judicial commission to  enquire into the serious charge  brought against the attorney general by J.'S. Cowper, a liberal-  member for Vancouver. Cowper  charged that the night before  election a representative of the  Canadian Northern Railway deposited $15,000 in the safe of the  Hotel Vancouver for the liberal  campaign fund which was called  for by Hon. M. A. Macdonald-.  Y.M.C.A. Work Amongst  Boys at the Front  Germans Read Speech  of President Wilson  Captain Pearson tells Thrilling Aviators Shower Translation  Story of Life in the Trenches  Before   a ' gathering   of  nearly  seventy of the local  business men  in Pamphlets Over Enemy  Lines  ,    , , ,   I   Copas of President Wilson's famous  and others I uesday, afternoon   in ^d^,, t0 Congress asking for     tbe  the Lakeview Hotel, Capt.

The front appeared for a moment to be the soeie of a  raging snow blizzard.  French artillery and aviatn observers, watching activities behind ths1  German lines through powerful field  glasses from observation posts in  trees and eaptive baloons, reported  that the shower of pamphlets caused  a great commotion behind the German  lines. Soldiers srramblsd out of the  dug-outs, grabbed copies, and hastily  darted baok out oi range of tha French  guns and snipers,  Copies in German were put into the  hands of every German soldier or civilian prisoner in France. Ths distribution was quiokly completed, and reports from the camps show that the  pamphlets created a proloundirapres-  sion.

Nurses  will participate in th* grant upon the  BIRTHS  MARTIN-On Friday, April 20th,  to the wife of F. A. Martin, a  son.  MOUBRAY���On Thursday, April  19th, to the wife of G. H. Moubray (nee Stocks), of Glenmore,  ��� son.  who for the past two years had  charge of Y.M.C.A. military service  work in the shelled area in Fiance  told a thrilling story of British pluck i ,^  tenacity and organization which'  had gradually turned the tide of  war against the mighty German  force, and from a contemptible  little army ill-equipped with fighting material had developed a terrific fighting force which was now  begining to overwhelm the enemy,  and would before long result in a  victory for Democracy against unscrupulous militarism and autocratic domination.  The occasion was the beginning  of a campaign to stimulate interest  in the splendid work which is being done by the Y.M.C.A. amongst  the boys who are bearing the unspeakable hardships of trench lite.  Luncheon was served at 12.30  and after this function had been  disposed of Mayor Sutherland who  acted as chairman briefly introduced the Capt. who was enthusiastically received. He has a most entertaining gift of narration and  from beginning to end ojf his address he held the wrapt attention  of his hearers.  His story commenced with the  with the landing of the first small  British contingent, which though  lacking nothing in the traditional  qualities of the British Army, was  almost overwhelmingly out-numbered, and due to England's unprepared condition had what now  seems an almost insignificant  equipment of guns and shells with  which to meet the onrushing  Germans. Amid discouragement  and disaster however, they held  on grimly until the Empire could  abjust itself to the calamity which  had befallen the world, and send  them' not only reinforcements bul  artillery large enough and numerous enough to adequately meet the  situation, until at present the Allied  power in guns and shells was as  more than ten to one of that of  the enemy.  The same situation presented itself in regard to aircraft, the British  and French having now gained  ascendency in the air. So much  was this the case that many men  have been months in the trenches  without having seen a German  aeroplane, while thousands ot  the Allie's machines thronged the  air, and maintained a regular and  effective patrol ofthe lines. In addition to this, companies of Allie's  aircraft passed daily over thi  enemy's lines, taking photographs  and directing the fire of the heavy  guns.  The present successes of the  allies were not due to any offensive  or" drive," but were rather the  cumulative effort of over two  years of solid preparation both at  home and in France. The vast  achievements of the navy in keeping open the seas, and of the contingents from Canada and other  parts of the empire, the forn er  alone greater than the whole British army of the first few months,  were also sketched.  Capt. Pearson told of the organizing of the military service branch  of the Y.M.C.A., and its endorse-  tion by the British government and  of Lord Kitchener himself. It had  done a wonderful work in helping  and sustaining the soldiers under  their terrible trials and in ministering to their comfort and recreation.  In conclusion Capt. Pearson  foreshadowed aome of the serious  problems which would face the  country upon the conclusion of  the war, when the soldiers, fresh  from the terrible life of the trenches, would be coming home.  Mr. E. C. Weddellfin proposing  a vote of thanks to Capt. Pearson,  gave further information concerning the work of the Y.M.C.A. in  France, and urged that every possible encouragement and assistance  be given to the movement.  In the evening Capt. Pearson  addressed a mass meeting in Knox  Various Competitions -  Officers Elected  , ���       _, . .   i    The organization meeting of the  oame term, as soUhers.   The grant in, ] b      .

Williams Dies in  English Hospital  News came to hand this week of  the death in hospital in England of  Pte. H. J. Williams, who went over  with the rest of the Kelowna boys  last fall, but who owing lo continued ill-health has never been  able to get to the front. He was  unfortunate enough to contract  measles which was epidemic  amongst the men for a time, and  suffered severely. Later he sustained an injury while engaged in  bayonet drill. His death however  was due to pneumonia.  Mr. Williams came to Kelowna  some four or five years ago from  Danville, Quebec, where he was  for a considerable time superintendent of the asbestos mines. He  was a son-in-law of Mr. J. C.Stock-  well, and leaves a wife and four  young children.  Private Barlee Killed  in Action  Pte. Roland Finch-Hatton Barlee-  eldest son of Lieut, and Mrs. W. R-  Barlee, of Kelowna, has been added  to the list of "Killed in action" during the week. Pte. Barlee, who  was onlv ninteen years of age, was  born and lived practicaly the whole  of hia life in the Kelowna district.  He went overseas last fall, only a  short time after his father, who had  seen service with the first contingent, was invalided home. Lieut,  Barlee is now with the B. C. Horse  in Vernon.  church which was filled with one  of the largest congregations ever  seen in that building, and all listened with the closest attention  while he drew vivid pictures of  the scenes which are being enacted in the battlefields of France,  He conveyed in a manner which  no cold press despatch could do  living picture of the horror and  pathos of the first retreat from  Ypres, before the unexpected  early gas attacks, when soldiers  and civilians, old men and women  and young children, transport  trucks and guns, struggled along  the narrow lane which afforded  the sole means of escape.  He alao told of the manner in  which the Y.M.C.A. organization  had been used to act as a medium  between the love and anxiety of  those at home and the men at the  front, surrounded aa they were by  physical dangers and disci mforts,  and still greater moral pitfalls.  The tents and shelters of the  Y.M.C.A. were amongst the bright  spots in that terrible country, and  the greatest blessings to the men  at the front. ,  Mr. Estabrook, national secretary, who has had charge of ar-  arrangements for thc visit, supplemented the captain's address by a  brief outline of what was involved  in the carrying on of the work of  the Y.M.C.A. at the front and the  need of keeping it up to the highest degree of efficiency. Though  not directly appealing for funds an  opportunity would be given, he  said, to Kelowna people to contribute to the support of the movement, and for that purpose the  local committee had made arrangements for a rapid canvass of the  city.  After the meeting there were  seversl who volunteered to carry  out the suggested canvass, and it  is understood that their efforts are  meeting with success. Th. canvass  is to be continued until Fridaj  evening.  Mr. W. A. Scott, of Benvoulin,  received a wire during the week  that his son, Clifford who is in  prance, had maintained a slight  gunshot wound in the hand.  '  The numbers of strikers in Berlin is  placed, even in the semi-official report,  at 136,000, and is distributed, according to the TageWatt, through mach ne  works, electrical establishments, and  part ol the munition plants. A strike  has also broken out amongst the Polish munition workers in Warsaw.  ...Nearly 6,000 laborers to work on  farms in western Canada are reported  to havo been secured hv ths United  States up to last Saturday as a result of the campaign conducted by the  Dominion government and the governments of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and  Alberta.  Several fruit growers' organisations  have asked retail merchants' associations in Western Canada to exert influence to have ths entry of foreign  fruits into Canada during the Canadian fruit season prohibited. Negotiations with the federal government relative to the proposal have been started..  were elected and further details  arranged. Thirty - one members  from town nnd country have joined the club and the officers elected  by them were: Quentin Fallis, president, sec.-treas., Tom Taylor,  whilst Mr. W. Mitchell is club organizer.  The two departmental competitions selected are potatoe growing  and poultry raising. In the potatoe growing there are six positive  entries and five more wish to enter if land can be procured for  them. Mr. Mitchell is very anxious  that as many competitors as possi-  |ble take part in this competition,  and as the potatoe plots must be  one-tenth of an acre in area, he  wishes to hear from someone who  has land suitable for potatoes in a  central part of Kelowna, which  they would lend or rent to help  out this competition. There are  eight entries in the poultry competition and ihe breed selected is  White Wyandottes.  The organizing committee have  in view the following competitions  for the year���manual training, collection of vegetables,noxious weeds  (mounted), noxious weeds (seeds),  canning and preserving, garment  making, cookery, photography and  essay, in addition to which it is  proposed to have school collections of sewing, school handwork  and school collections of flowers  and vegetables. It is intended that  all these exhibits shall be shown at  the iall fair. Friends have already  promised prizes for three of these  competitions and the committee  hope that any others who are interested in this movement and  would like to give special piizes  will notify Mr. Mitchell or Mr. Dalglish at once so that the competition can be properly'arranged and  a leaflet of rules, 6tc, distributed  within the next fortnight.  The rules for the department  potato competition are briefly:  Plots to be exactly one-tenth of an  acre; one variety to be grown bv  alii each competitor to do all the  work himself, except that the girls  and younger boys may be assisted  with heavy work such as ploughing, &c.   "  The rules for the poultry compe-J  tition are: Competitors to raise  chickens of the same breed (white  Wyandottes chosen); the eggs to  be set under a hen and not more  and not less than 13 eggs shall be  set. Eggs can be procured for competitors to cost not more than 50c  per setting, ^^^^^^^^^^  Further applications to join in  these two competitions can be taken if handed at once to Quentin  Fallis, Tom Taylor, or Mr. W. C.  Mitchell, or Mr. R.L. Dalglish, and  it is hoped that many others will  join the club to make it the biggest  in the valley, whether they intend  to go in for these two competitions  or for the others which are being  arranged      ^^^^^^^^^  Any boy or girl from 10 to 17  years may join, and the membership fee for the year is 25 cents,  payable to Tom Taylor, sec.-treas.

DUTIES : Orderly patrol for  week, Beavers; next for duty, Curlews, v  PARADES: The combined  troop will parade at the club room  on Wednesday, 2nd of May at  7.15 p.rh. at the exhibition building on Friday the 4th of May at  the same time, and at the club room  on Saturday the 5th of May at  2.30 p.m. Every scout must have  his staff at each of these parades  and full uniform ia compulsory on  Saturday. A scout wearing his  uniform neatly at any parade is en-  titled to 3 points for neatness, as  well as points for attendance and  conduct. Patrol leaders will please  ascertain at once what equipment  in the way of uniforms, billycans  etc., is required by any scout in  their patrols and hand in a lift to  the scoutmaster. The annual troop  photo graph will be taken at either  the above Saturday parade or the  Saturday following As our total  roll is only 28 we cannot afford to  have any absentees.  There waa a time when as a  tro.op we had a good name for  punctuality, but we are afraid that  excellent attribute is becoming one  ol our past glories.    We have a lot  f  work   to do   for the   concert,  'liich   we must   make a   success,  nd it is our aim to do all of this  work with the least possible interference with school studies. In  addition to the above parades we  must have some singing rehearsals,  but if you (each of you individually)  will make a point of being punctual at each rehearsal, give close  attention and put some vim and  energy in > our work while there,  we are sure that you can make a  success of both your scouting work  and your studies. Do not make  one good thing an excuse for not  doing another good thing or doing  both of them half-heartedly, which  is so often done. Be honeat with  yourselves, and if it is a sacrifice  lor any of you to give up some  other amusements for the concert  or scouting���and there is some  thing wrong with you or the troop  if that is so - we ask you to make  that sacrifice up to the concert at  any rate. After the concert let us  then find out what ia wrong. When  a parade is called for 7.15 let us  be able to commence work at that  time, and not have different acouta  come straggling in for half-atl-hour  alter that. Then when the parade  is over make a bee-line for home  at scout's pace. Punctuality ia an  absolute essentiality for success in  any walk of life, and many a man  owes hia present place at the bottom rung of the ladder, or half way  up, when he might have been al  the ti p, to the simple, catching and  common fault of unpunctuality.  It is most pleasing to know when  an appointment ia made with any  one that it will be kept promptly,  and nothing is more indicative ol  what a troop of boy acouta really  are than punctuality. By it we know  whether a troop ia a bunch of luke  warm, half-hearted boya with aome  slackers mixed in, or a bunch of  keen, alert, amart, and loyal scouts,  who will make the aame kind of  men to-morrow. We are not writing this for the sake of filling up  space, but we earnestly wish each  individual acout in the troop to  carefully read this and apply it to  himself, because it is needed in  the troop now, and  badly.  If we are able to arrange for the  Concert on two nights, we shall  have it on the 17th and 18th of  May. The ticketa will be given  out for sale on Friday the I Ith of  Mav, and will be the uaual price of  50c for adults, and 25c for children.  Who ia going to win the prize for  selling the moat thia year? Last  year the following four headed the  list in the order named - R. Keller,  J. Groves, J. Calder and C." Rowcliffe.  Patrol leadera who wish to have  aeparate patrol meetings will have  time given them for thia purpose  at the regular troop paradea up to  the conceit.  America's Preparation  For the War  Un account of tbe many interesting  side-lights wbioh it throws upon the  way in whioh the idea of war has been  l-trceivtid in tbe country' to tba soutn  oi the line, and on preparations which  ure ueing made to meet tha pronlems  wbioh are bound to arise aa a consequence of tbe atep taken by tba government of tbs United states, wa are  printing tba following extracts from a  letter just received by Mr, W. il. Ureal  irom a friend in Memphis, 'ion.  "We are at lost in tba war," be  writes. 'Guess Canada wm elated at  tbe entrance of Unoie dam n.to the  struggle. The South is ailiime with  enthuaiaam.

"You would be surprised at tbe unanimity of feeling in this section foi  the war. i'or a long period Dv'iuio  declaration was made by Congress .oi  a 'state of war' it waa a uragone  conclusion that war was bound to follow, and when it waa nimby roucbed,  everyone was reconciled to. it and considered it as a matter of course.' it  is astonishing how little it baa ul'.eCjV  ed America���X mean aa to exoiiement  over it. Jiverybody Booms to feel us il  it was a personal job on tbe part of  each individual whioh had been bald  up or delayed aa long us pueaiule, to  to get into it and uphold our rights,  and we are not a bit confused pver it  or doubtful about tba result. ibis  year will not see tbe and. Nobody expect* the U. a. ta do anything clioct-  ive inside of almost a-.year.  "it's a good., sign at Washington,  too, that the government is going into everything on a big scale It  might surprise you to know tbat  76,000 rear automobile wheels have  been supped out of Memphis in three  weeks by tha ivelaay Wheal Co., and  another order has just been entaved  for 60,000 more.

Mm  |_B��rruE   SYNDICATe'll  "1.M|   ONCE upon a time when you were going to school  you may have read these words: " Tea, Coffee  and Cocoa, from which we make such pleasant drinks,  are all of them some part of a plant."  Last week we had a word to say about Tea. This  week let us say about coffee that there are many brands  in many cans. Some are whole, some ground, some  pulverized, some "other ized,"some good and some in-,  different. However, let us say this: if you want good  Coffee, pure Coffee, unadulterated Coffee, why not buy  our own blend which we grind in our electric machine  from freshly-roasted coffee beans > The aroma is there,  the flavor is there, the strength is there.

The fact is also emphasized that all butter  in such packages must  be of the full net weight  of sixteen ounces, snd  in default of same s  fine of from $10 to $30  for each offence is imposed. Whey butter  must be eo labelled  even when mixed with  dairy butter, snd 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:  100MTKar��$1.50  200  500  1000  �����  2.00  3.15  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 thia supply has been entirely  cut off. Unfortunately there is no guarantee against further increases, indeed, they are more than likely.  Kelowna Record
