Gray, who wmt from Kelowna to Calgary two weeks ago to  join the 137th regiment recruitiru  der Lieut.-Coi. Morfitt, halt been     sp  ies. The first was a reduction in the  staff, involving the lineman and one  of the men handling fuel into the power house. This was to take effect from  the end of February and from then  on the office 'staff would be requested  to read the light and water meter..  .It was also recommended that the  counoil consider the expediency of purchasing from the Kelowna Sawmill to.  the horse and cart at present used  for the hauling of fuel at the power  house, and that in view of a prospective shortage in the fuel supply tor  neat winter, arrangements be made  to call for tenders for about WOO  cords of green wood for next wintor's  use.  Alderman Sutherland said thut the  late committee had informed Mr.  Lloyd-Jons, that the oity would take  delivery of a" the sawdust produced by  the mill in 1916. Mr. Lloyd-.! ves  has intimated that there might o. a  considerable quantity of lumber let  during the current year. With reference to the purchase of the horse and  cart, while no price had been I laced  upon it the company had expressed a  willingness to Bell it to the city, and  has also stated that they might wish  to arrange with the city for ita use  during the time the sawmill was in operation.    The recommendations of the committee were adopted by resolution. Mayor  Jones remarking that in view of ihe  reduction of the staff the salaries of  .' the' remain'ng employees of the department affected would not be-reduced, as a saving of approximately 12,  000 for the year would be made by  throwing additional work upon the  - rest of the staff.  It was also decided to call for tenders for not more th-in 1000 cords of  green fir or pine.  Alderman-Harvey, chairman of the  Parks committee reported having ap-  proaohed Messrs. L. E. Taylor, D. W,  Crowley and W. J. Pa'mer, who had  consented to act as members of the  Park, commission for the current  year. Their appointment was .accordingly approved by the council.  On the suggestion of the Mayor Alderman Harvey and Alderman Ratten-  ' bury were appointed to act with him  as a committee to deal with all matters concerning the looal military organization.  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^  The meeting was then adjourned to  Friday, February 11th at 10 a.m.  Former Kelowna Printer  Meets Death in Blizzard  ifter   placing   the  pull the trigger  giin to hia   chest.  looped string attached wa9 lying     by    . , .    -  . .      .        ,.

Both th^sc departments, however, have been co-operating.  ������O   Series of Lectures to Farmers  . Edgar W. Harris, editor and proprietor of the Coronation (Alta.) Beview,  met a sad. and tragio death on Sunday January 16th. Harris who' was  at one time on the staff ol the Kelowna Courier had been suffering from  an attack ol la grippe, but refused to  lav up, .and on Saturday, January 15  he became delirious, and ��� friend stayed with him all night. On Sunday  morning he was better, and his friend  left him for a while. - A little later  Harris dressed -and went out. A blizzard was raging at the time, and it  was very cold, below zero. He was  soon missed, and' searchers went in  all directions, but no trace of him  could be found. He was just swallowed up in the-snowstorm. The search  went on on Monday with no success.  On Tuesday the mayor called upon the  storekeepers to close their stores and  all join in the search. This was done,  and in the afternoon Mr. Harris was  found dead on the prairie about three  miles from town, where'8e'Bad'evidently fallen from ahauftlen.

The 172nd are arranging a ;;riind  military ball to take place in Morrison'. Hall next Thursday evening,  Fabru.ry 10th,  Farmers are ever alive to add to  thrfr knowledge of farming anl the  best methods to pursue in getting the  most from their land and to receive  the best prices for their livestock. It  has become an axiom with British Columbia farmers to farm' better and  with the idea of helping them us much  as possible to overcome the vexing  prob'ems which they have to face the  I provincial department of agriculture  has arranged a series of meetings to  be held in the various part, ol , the  province when the men of the department will lecture on subject, of vital  interest to British Columbia farmers.  Dairying, milk testing, and butter  making will be taken up by T. A. P.  Wiancko, assistant provincial dairy  instructor, who is one of the best  known dairymen in the province. S.  H. Hopkins, assistant livestock commissioner will speak on live stock  judging, mixed farming, cattle ailment  and other matters of interest to the  mixed farmers.

Mr. Hilborn is one of the most  successful fruit 'and vegetable growers  in the province and has a thorough  knowledge of the industry  It is certain that the farmers of the  district will make a poml of attending the lectures, whioh will bo short  and timely. A detailed program of the  points to be visited by the livestock  and mixed farming lecturers will be  given next week.   0   GREAT FLAGPOLE FROM B. C.  ARRIVES AT KEW GARDENS  Once the pride of a British Columbia  forest, a 215-foot flagstaff Bow lie. in  the Thames off Kew Gardens. Owing  to an adverse tide, it transpired that  the journey up river was not actually  oompleted last week an was expected,  but it' was finally accomplished without the giant pole (.n"e grazing a  bridge, though tho river was decidedly  choppy. The clerk at Kew wrote out  a receipt for 215-feet of flagpole on a  two-inch piece of paper��� "Received in  good condition, one log." The adventures of the pole are by no means at  an end. The Garden authorities are  now faced with the big task of raising  it across the ha-ha ("no ha-ha matter," writes a correspondent), the moht  which bounds the river-front of the  Gardens and then dragging it a quarter* of.�� mile to the mound where the  old flagpole stood for so many years.  A derrick will then have to be used  and the" Richmond council have given  permission for onvto be erected, but  some little time will elapse before this  stag. i.

Short speeches were also given by  Lieut. Allen, Rev. Mr. Tanner and Mr.  Denison.  Tho following gentlemen assisted in  entertaining tho large audience with  songs, recitations, etc. Sergt.

One of the most "enjoyable entertainments ever given in the valley . was  brought to an end by singing "God  ��ive the King," and the giving of  three hearty cheers for Rutland, Ellison and Mike Hereron, after which the  Kelown. guests were driven to their  homes by their kind entertainers.  The great trouble and pains taken  by the hospitable people of Rutland  and Ellison to entertain their guests  was the subject of monv highly com-  plimcntarv remarks d"- n' thj evening  and although the people of these  places are noted for doing things very  thoroughly thev certainly outdid I hem  wives last Thursday.

Mr. Blair ol  Winnipeg and his son Trooper Blair  (L.S.H.) marched with the reserve.  The only casualties reported were a  couple of frozen hands and one toe.

O  The provincial department of agriculture will conduct February 2nd to 11th  a nine-days "Short -Course" at West  Summerland, similar to the one held  last year at Kelowna, when the offi-  ccials of the department will deliver  lectures on matters of vital interest  to the farmer, and fruit grower, in  that district. An extensive program  ha< been mapped out by the department, and include, lecture, and demon  stration. on poultry, lipesjtook and  hottioultur. i* detail.  A meeting is to bo held every Friday  evening.  a a  A meeting of the Farmer's Organization Association was held Monday  even-'ng and was well attended. It m  decided amongst other things to take  Up the question of "'Orchard Protection" in accordance with suggestions  made recently through the fruit inspection stall 0f the district. It i. the  intention to hold regular meetings ol  the Association every second Monday  of the month.  a' a  St. Andrews church, was the scene  o' a very pretty and popular wedd'ng  last Wednesday, January 26th, when  Mis. Mabel Agnes Fitzpatrick became  the wife of John Weajley Fleming.  Promptly at .1 o'clock the bride entered the church leaning on the arm of  ber father, and took her place by the  side of the groom at th? altar, Mia.  Elva Fleming acted as flower girl, and  Master Dudley Fitzpatrick as page.  Miss Joy Fleming presided at tho organ.  The oeremony was performed by ��he  Rev. David Lister. At ihe conclusion  of the servioe, a beautiful bouquet from  the St. Andrew's Ladies' Guild, ot  which the bride was secretary, was  presented by little Ruth Jo'sastoa.  The church w.s very tastefully deo-  orated with evergreen and white ribbon.  Long before the ceremony started  the church was crowded with the  friends of the young couple, whioh testified in a measure to the esteem in  which the bride and groom were held  in the district.  After leaving the church the newly  married couple and a number of their  friend, repaired to the home of the  bride where a sumptuous repast was  partaken of.  Mr. and Mr.. Fleming will take up  their residence on the farm of Mr. Gns  Anderson, just east of Kelownai  Freeing Over ef Lake  Recalls Eariy Dap  Bright  Sunny   Weather But  Unusually Low Temperature*  The freexing of Okanagan Lake i.  fortunately of sufficiently ran occur-  rence to make it ��� notable event in  the annals of the valley, and QimyssB.  tively few of the residents bare remember .

It araa -n IW7  that the lake at Kelowna last presented a continuous sheet of <e�� front  one aide to the other, but even than  lake navigation was continued uninterrupted lo far a. Kelown* wa. concerned. The real old-timers kuwnver,  can go back to the year 1993, oventy-  three year, ago when the boat, plying  in the lake were too small to keep a  channel open ttnd communication wa.  cut off for several weeks.

We have not got to any such pitch  yet, and it it to be fervently hoped  hoped we .hall not. Until last night  the Sioamous has been able to make  every trip through as far as Summer-  land, though the going further down  the lake Has been a little strenuous.  Last night, however, the boat found  it impossible to get neared than three  miles of Summerland, and during today the tug Castlegar has been occupied in the endeavor to break a way  through to allow the Sicamou. to  return. It is feared that if the cold  does not abate, it will be found impossible to continue the regular trips  further south than Kelowna.  Notwithstanding the low temperature the days of the past week  have been bright and sunny, and if  one could forget the water pipes and  the diminishing wood pile the weather  is not too bad.  feitlfr Krrfft  Compiled   by 6.

Service has been playing  handball with death by throwing tho  bombs in Flanders, tourists visiting  Dawson have practically torn his cabin to pieces and cut up the logs for  Souvenirs. The in0ose head that hung  over his door has shared a similar  fate.  All of this is very exasperating to  many northerners, who have a high  regard for '"Hob" Service, not because  he has won fame in the literary  world, but because of his many manly  attributes. Northerners also have a  sentimental regard for Service's   cabin  The northern people love this cabin  as they love "Dob" Servioe.

The  Lower Otay dam burst late on Thursday afternoon last and released some  15,000,000.000 gallons of water which  swept in a ma(i rusn down the valley  carrying everything before it. Many  houses, with their occupants were carried out to sea by the hugh wall of  water over 30 feet nigh.  Communication was completely destroyed and bridges washed away and  the survivors Buffered terribly from  exposure and  lack  of  food.  Scores of persons aro reported missing and over sixty bodies have already  been recovered from the debris. The  property loss will probably amount to  more than $1,000,000.  The heavy rn'nfall was also accompanied by a 'ugh wind which caused  considerable trouble to shipping on  the California coast, but the danger at  sea appeared to have passed with tha  moderation of the ffnle.   .'  The floods have thrown almost tho  entire portion of southern California  into panic a.* where the flood water  has not itself reached the towns it  has in miinv cases washed away the  waterO mains supplying many of the  smaller towns, leaving them without  drinking water.  Reports from various parts of the  western States indicate that the storm  1ms affected many districts and owing  to the rapidly ris'ng water in many  of the rivers much gttviety if felt and  many are removing to places of safety. The storm is reported to be the  worst in twenty years, and with the  low temperatures prevailing, much suf-,  fering will result. Relief parties however in automobiles and huge trains o.  motor trucks are being hurried to the  stricken districts.  ANTI.A1RCRAFT ARTILLERY  The past year and a half of war has  resulted in a remarkable advance in  anti-aircraft artillery. Whereas atthe  beginning of the conflict, the aviators  considered themselves secure when flying at altitudes of 8,000 feet, since  the shrapnel burst some thousands of  feet below them, then thu-e is attendant danger today even when flying at  10,000 feet. The range of the antiaircraft guns has been steadily increas  ed from below 5,000 feet la over 10,-  000. It is bceomin-j increasingly difficult for aeroplane observers to conduct effective reconnaissances, owing  to the great height at which they are  coinpeJled to fly ov^-r inemy positions.

ICE  Book Your Orders  Early for  Bankhead Ice  to avoid disappointment  FIRST COME,  FIRST SERVED  Every Dairy   Farmer  should  have a supply to ensure best  quality cream  Bankhead Orchard  Company, Ltd.  East Africa is Germany's  Only Remaining Colony  The official aanounoemetit of Gen.  Smith-Dorrirn'e new command in Eait  Africa, combined with various reports  leading to corroborate the belief thai  an attack on Egypt and the Suez  canal will bo tho next blow which the  German headquarters staff will' seek  to deliver, receives serious consideration.  The immense strategical possibilities  of the world war furnishes a fascinating study. Sir Horace Smith-Dor-  rien's appointment suggests, in the  words of the Westminster Gazette,  that "the operations in East Africa  are destined to take a moro important  character than they have hitherto  had."  With the operations in the Kamerun  practically completed, German l^ast.  Africa is tho only remaining German  colony to be subdued, and its possession will be a valuable asset to tho  British Empire, and especially to India. Germany is understood to possens  a force of about 7,000 whites at her  disposal there, and ho has not hesitated to arm large numbers of the  native population which totals 10*-  000,000.  The British forces in EaBt Africa in  the early stages of.the war consisted  of only two battalions of the King'*  African Rifles (native troops), eome  3,000 native police in British East  Africa and Uganda and some small  white levies. These were reinforced later by Indian troops.  The German and British forces have  come into contact on various occasions, the two most important results being the failure of a British attack on the German post of Tanga,  and the British capture of Bukoba, Iho  chief German base on Lake Victoria  Nyanza.  Nothing in the nature of un .attack to conquer German East Africa,  which is officially one and a naif times-  the size of Germany has hitherto been  attempted, but the appointment of a  general of the fame of Sir Horace  Smith-Dorrien. leads to the expectations that a coup of this kind is now  in preparation. Some criticism of tho  plan is hdar'd chiefly on the ground  that it is a "policy of small packets"  and that such forces as will be placed  at General Pmith-Dorrien's disposal  could easily be employed elsewhere.  Egypt is tho particular place the  critics have in view. The British garrison in that country has been greatly increased, and it is believed is adequate to repel German-Turkish attacks. Some authorities hold that  tho characteristic British habit of disparaging the enemy may again be  unduly influencing the government's  counsels.  Reports from Syria of Turkish preparations are regarded as serious and  travellers from Syria speak of strong  concentrations of Turkish troops at  Jerusalem and Jaffa. The German  general Trussemar, is in command of  an army of 70,000 men at Ghaza, and  Gen. von tfackenzen, according to the  report, will have supreme command of  the army of invasion of Egypt.  The reported decision of the Dutch  shipping companies trading to the  East Indies to abandon the Suez canal route is in some quarters considered due rather to German warniaip  than to the reason alleged���the difficulty of coaling.  An interesting commentary on the  present situation in regard to both  German East Africa and Egypt is the  report that France at an early period  of the war offered to place at England's disposal for the conquest of  German EaBt Africa, a strong expeditionary force then stationed at Madagascar, but the offer was declined on  the ground that Grear Britain was  not then ready to undertake such un  expedition.  BUTTER AND GOLD  Aerial Strength of Great  Britain i  There has Been a remarkable increase in the activity of aircraft on  both sides of the western front. This  is the outstanding feature of developments since the battle of Loos. Tho  Germans in September, constantly harassed by numerous bomb dropping ex  peditions on their lines of communication, made desperate efforts to meet  the emergency by transferring luanjj  new fast machines to the wedUvo front  as foretold by despatches in August.  Tim result is'a continuous stalemate  relieved by a .steadily increasing aerial activity, until now both the allies  and tho enemy's communiques ��� deal  principally with the work of aircraft.  Aerial fighting which until this summer consisted mainly of engagements  between single machines, has steadily  developed until now conflicts between  flights and squadron* are a regular  occurrence..  In October and November the ete-  my placed several *nw design* In the  field and it is gratifying to note .hat  no deorease has been shown in the  marked superiority he'.d by the British machines.  The air services .are assuming such  proportions that now this fifth nrm is  considered as essential to the conduct  of defensive an'l qfctl ire operations as  is artillery. Tactics of aerial fighting  between units of fifty machines are  now ben# developed. The British air  services recently doubled their machines ftnd personnels By next summer  the plan will be formidable enough to  accomplish twenty times the work done  this summer.  The importance of this extension of  aerial strength is easily seen in view  of the disorganization of tho en*ny's  railways in Belgium, which has already been accomplished on three occasions.  It is gratifying to notc that over a  hundred Canadians have recently arrived in England to complete their  training courses as flying officers.  They will bo retimed to the Canadian Flying Corps if such is formed'.  Butter and gold are both very pre-  eiouB in Berlin, and the possessore of  either enjoy certain decided advantages  in the Gorman capital. According to,  Yorwarts, the Socialist journal, a  butter dealer in the suburb of Steg-  letE announced that anyone who paid  in gold for butter would enjoy the  priceless advantage of being able to  purchase two pounds at a time. Under ordinary conditions, it appears,  people; in Berlin can secure only one  quarter of a pound at each purchase.  The Steglitz butterman found that  housewives who were deaf to Government entreaties to add their gold to  the Imperial Bank's reserve fund were  eager to part with it in exchange for  butter. Within an hour his entire  stock was disposed of.  German's Dislike Bayoset  The enormous development in the  machine gun equipment ot the German  forces along the RuBsian front is authoritatively described by Col. Clerg��t  of tho; Russian army in an article in  Russky Invalid published by the war  department. He stated that the German army is becoming one great machine gun battery, the German government sparing no expense in constructing guns and supplying ammunition,  as well as teaching the rank and file  the use of the weapon.  It is the German aim, according to  the writer, to instruct every common  soldier of every branch of the service  how to manipulate a machine gun in  case of necessity. Even the steamers  and members of the Sanitary corps, he  adds, are receiving such instruction.  Another thing noted by Col. Olsrget.  is the extraordinary rapidity with  which the Germans are constructing  automatio rifles. He says that the  urgency of the German effort to transform their defensive line into machi.ro  gun batteries is indicated by their  pressing automobiles of the * sanitary  service into use as transports for guns  and ammunition.  The Germans dislike for bayonet attacks is responsible, according to Col.  Clesgot for the change in German tactics.  A double explosive Austrian shrapnel shell designed to oxplode when  striking after having discharged a rain  of bullets in the air is also described  by the writer. He says* however, that  the effects obtained by tho second explosion are alight.  PAGE TJHBHt   ,��HMBsB  Germany's Ambition  A fact which Great Britain has been  alow to realize was brought out in a  recent lecture in London by Naval  Lieutenant-Commander J. Wedgewood,  when ho said that before the war the  Germand had such a hold on the Turk  ish empire that it was fast becoming  a German colony.  The Germans wanted to reestablish  their trade and their commercial (supremacy. There, too, they locked back  on the'recent history, and they said  that the German empire was formed  not bo much by the capture of Paris  efl by the Zollverein.  He was confident that it was upon  her Customs Union they based their  hopes of tho greater German umpiro  about which they dreamed.  From Antwerp to Bagdad had b-nm  in their minds, and if they co'tld not  got Antwerp, from Hamburg to Bagdad would be juBt as good. If they  could force theso small Balkan countries and tho Turkish empire into this  Customs Union thev would be able to  force Austria also.  The Hpcaker said he did not think  the Germans would risk any of their  Pomeranian Grenadiers if there were  any Turks whom they could.send to  drive us out of Gallipoli. They would  leave us to enjoy the sand and flies.  We did not want to waste our  troops at too many points, and he  contended that we could hold a strip  of the tSue* with a comparatively  small force with the latest devices,  so long as they were well protected  with barbed wire and with redoubts,  and put trenches down well to the  east of the canal.  Personally, hp thought nothing could  be more satisfactory than that the  enemy should get well info Asia Minor. Many of them had gone before,  and they had not come back.  Iron coinage is now being placed in  circulation in Germany. It is stated  that 17,160,760 iron coins were distributed in Germany during November  and that 30,000,000 more are to be  distributed. As iron money gets into  circulation nickel and copper coins will  be kept  hack for war purposes.

They dragged a flat-bottomed  boat with them in case the ico failed  to hold thorn, but found no difficulty  in crossing until nenring tho shore  ou this sido, where the Sicamous had  weakened the ice by breaking hor path  through and when within a hundred  yards of the shore Haymun suddenly  dropped through into the icy water.  He happened to have a gootl hold on  the boat and immediately pulled himself out and after hurrying into warm  and dry clothes felt little worse    for  his experience  * ��  #  Tho severity of the weather lately  have been aggravated not a little by  a shortage of coal. The snow blockade on the railroads interfering with  tho movement of oars, coupled with  tho sudden increased demand from all  points, caused several' cars on order  to be hold baek, and now the freezing  up of the lake has made housekeepers  still moro unensv in that respect. Last  week-end Mr. Leckie managed to  cure a car of briquettes, which wero  eagerly snapped up. Mr. Haug's  stock has gradually melted away until  a few days ago his sh"ds were swept  clean.

An emergency food.���Kock-tripe, Tie  liock-tripe or famine-food of the Indians, has saved many u nian from  starving. Everyone knows it us the  flat, leathery, 'crinkle-edged lichen that  grows on the rooks. It is blackish  and brittle in dry weather, but a dull  dark greenish on the upper side in  wet. It is largely composed of nutritious matter that can be assimilated by the human stomach. Unfortunately it is -also a powerful purge unless dried before being boiled as food.  Specimens gathered from the rocks in  Connecticut���it is very widely distributed��� aftor drying and two or three  hours boiling, produced u thick mucilaginous liquid and u granular mass  of solid jelly, that wero mild suad  pleasant to the taste, entirely without  bitterness. Indeed it was sweetish,  with a slight flavor of liquorice and  of sago, far from unpalatable at any  time,' and to u starving man no doubt  a boon from heaven. It is less abundant in the north country than ilia  reindeer moss, but yet it is to bs  found in great quantities and at all  seasons of the year.  A man named Wood, who was proud  of his reputation for making jokes,  met one day a friend called Stone.  "Good morning, Mr. Stont," said-Mr.  Wood, "and how are Mrs. Stone aid  all the little pebbles?"  "Quito well, thank you, Mr. Wood"  answered Mr. Stone, "and how are  Mrs. Wood and nil the little splinters?'  Great Demand for Eggs  For the first time in a number of  years eggs have taken a prominent  place in Canada's export trade. This  is largely duo to the unprecedented  demand for eggs on the part of the  British market and the fact that  British dealers have shown a marked  preference for Canadian eggs over  United States eggs and a willingness  t�� pay a distinctly higher price for  them.  So great in fact has been the demand that Canadian dealers ' have  shipped practically all pf the available Canadian Borage product to the  old country. As (l result there is not  in Canada ut the present time, sufficient eggs ia storage to supply home  consumption until fresh receipts in  appreciable quantities begin to come  in.  Quantities of eggs from the United  States, however, are being imported  into Canada, some in bond for export  but the larger part to take the place  of the Canadian product exported. On  account of the keen demand for Canadian eggs above mentioned. United  States eggs can be laid down in Canada at tho present time, duty paid,  at several cents per dozen less than  the price at which Canadian eggs are  selling for, for export and they should  bo procurable by the consumer's accordingly.  On- the other hand, the Canadian  market at the present time' is very  firm for Canadian "Specials" (new  lhid) the production of which is not  enough in most instances to supply  the demand at local country markets.  This means that high prices.will' have  to be paid in consuming centres in order to draw a portion of these . supplies from local points. Producers  may, therefore, definitely expect reasonably high prices during the period  of low production for fresh gathered  eggs that will grade "Specials."  The question has been raised as to  whether the phenomenal demand on  the part of the British market for  Canadian eggs will continue. This depends entirely upon the quality of  Canadian eggs exported. Canada has  tremendous possibilities us an egg-  producing country. The poultry industry is at present but a mere fraction of what it might be. It remains,  therefore, for those interested in the  development of this trade lo make the  best possible use of their present opportunities, and by careful supervision  of tho quality of Canadian eggs going  forward to pftve the way for an extensive and profitable export trade in  the future.  FROST GETS BIRD MEN  Reindeer" meat is becoming a general  item of food in Germany. According  to reports from Berlin over one hundred thousand reindeer will be alaugh-  torud for export in Scandinavia dm-  in the next Tew weeks. Several train  loads have already been sent to Germany.  Owing to the intenso cold, German  air scouts are becoming less active in  Russia.  Thanks to the bitterness of the weather, one Albatross machine was oap-  tured by the Russians absolutely intact. It waB observed over the Russian lines, and waB allowed to get  well to tho rear before a Russian flotilla of aeroplanes mounted and cut  off its retreat, and concurrently the  artillery became busy.  The Albatross soared to altitudes  where the cold must have reaohed min  us 31, or 63 degrees of frost, Fahrenheit. Soon it was Been to be circling  aimlessly, and finally it made a good  descent, quite normally, into some  marshes behind the Russian lines.  After a couple of hours search the ma  chine was discovered, Tho pilot and  observer were both dead in their float.*  and the machine was in perfect condition. The men undoubtedly perished  through tho intense cold aggravated  by rapid motion through the air.  It is probable that the last conscious act of the pilot was to plane  down, that his and his companion's  arms being frozen, rhey were unable  to loosen tho straps whioh bound  thorn to their seats, and that heart  failure from cold brought death.  It is announced from London f&st  the government conscription law will  become operative on March 2nd.  Shelter for Implements  "The real test of the farmer is, p-r-  haps, in his ability to nake the most  profitable use of the various pruduts  of his farm and his forsight in getting ready in every way practicable  botwoen harvest and seed time ' lor  the productive operations o> tbe roxt  season." Thus states Mr. if. Ii. Gris-  dale, director, Dominion K\p-.i internal  Farms, in presenting Seasonable  Hints, No. 3, for November, December,  .January and February, to the farming  public of Canada. A careful perusal  of ita sixteen pages will amply reward  the stockman, the agriculturalist, the  horticulturalist, tho poultryman, the  tobacco grower and thoso especially interested in bees. A feature of this  third issue is tho advice under . the  caption "Shelter the Implements." The  enormity of tho vast sum of money  spent annually on farm machinery is  impossible 0f reali/ftt'ian. To equip  an averflSe farm with machinery costs  about 91,0(10, whioh under ordinary  conditions of treatment will not do  good work for more than fivo ystira.  To counteract thia waBte, for un-  Bholtered implements mean-* wuste,  good shelter should bo built.  A working plan of a shed 25 by W  feet outside measurements is given,  with directions necessary for its construction. A careful study of this  plan, which, as stated, is capable of  many modifications, will bo helpful to  thoso Intending t0 build. To thoso,  therefore, who would have compendium of information, which outlines  many necessary fall and winter duties  pertaining lo agriculture in all its  phases.. Seasonable Hints, No 3, is  available at tt-o department of ftgricul  ture. Ottawa.

February 1, 1016. 11  FENCE POSTS FOR SALE  The efforts of the government to propagate reindeer in the Peace River  country and in the: (.rent Slave district have proven unsuccessful and of  the original herd of fifty which were  sent .north from f.nbrador in 1911  there is now but one lonely survivor.  IK ib at present 'ord ol all lie sur-  i-oyd on an island in Great Slqvu lake.  The departmout of the interior did  everything possible I'o maks the ex-  per)ra6nl a buoocbs but tho re'tnd isr  did no| thrive in their adopted bind.  Ih- chief dillienlty WaS the "bull" flies  of the north, whioh dr0ve the , I'oijj*  deer nearly frantic ;n fh�� summer. 'Ihe  result whs that thoy smashed t'nr^urh  the stron^osj enclosures their Uee^iers  could build anl wore lost and shot by  the Indians.  Tho reindeer have thrived in Alaska,  but apparently the Poooe river country  ���\nd tho valley of tho Mackenzie wert  not suitable for them, later m cf-  mis may be made to introduce thum  in the Yukon where there seems to bo  no reason why they should not    su -  ���'erd.  An eli'oi't wan ovtn made to cros-*  them with the cnriloi. It was thought  hit the result might be nn animal  ��� bleb could be doniest'cat-d, rouUl be  Irian and used as is the reindeer,  \hile able to stend the climato. This  ixperlment failed for a peculiar reason. The superstitious Inl'ans of tin  north have a Iradifon th it eentavios  igo their ancestors entered into a  reaty with Iho caribou whereby they  igrsed not to capture them alivo or  degrade them by us'ni them for do-  nostio purposes. Uhi'c 'the Tn Hani  vill fhoot the oaribo'.i th.y will ngt  capture them alive. Thay stubbornly  insisted on abiding by this treaty.  i'hey fearpd that if the treaty wore  broken ^h"1 cariboo would disnnpeav  or'would seek n w haunts, T ii-ernl ot-  ers of mch \* were mrd1 lhejnd;ans  to capture the caribou but without  success. The efforts of Ihe forest  'angers lo capture some srocimens  alive were not successful. Without tjie  i isisi en t of the cunning of the rcd  man the caribou could not bo secured,  '''hi idea had to be abandoned end the  treaty with the ooribou is still inviolate.

V.!  [logon* at the meeting of tho Equal  Franchise League. The gist of his  speech was as follows:  By our present system of one man  ono vote, and single districts, from  one-half to two-thirds of the elector-i  ace practically disfranchised, as thoir  voted a'*o not effective.  A striking example of this failure to  attain representation by population is  afforded by Birmingham, England,  which is entitled to seven members for  its 70,000 electors.    The votes of 40,-  000 have continually elected seven Unionists for the seven electoral districts-  Tho liberals in Birmingham, approximately '-.0,0110 ftnd the Socialists 10,-  nou, have not only no representation,  but their    presence    enable tho 40,000  1 nionists to bo represented by seven  members as though they numbered 70,-  01 ��0.  In 1886, Gladstone's party had a  majority of 54,817 in the constituencies, yet the Conservatives attained a  majority well over a hundred in the  House of Coinmon&| In an election  :n Wales, six years n'~rf>, 63,639 Unionists d'd not n'ect n ff'ngle member.  In lha UonVin'on elect'on of 1011, the  Coiiscr a'i es obta'n d 184 seats, iro  portionaUy h y should have secured  III; and the Liberals who obtained S7  seats shou'd have had 107. In the  B. C. election of l(tl2. o'er 35 per  cent. *ol all tho electors wero urepro-  sentod .17 per cent, of the voters elected lin member-; in the ^orttosted constituencies, casting 31,171 votes. The  53,340 other votes were -isole^H, By  proportional representation, the C on-  porvatives should have had -2 members, the Liberals 15, the Socialists 3.  'Ihis would hnve brought in a government of twenty-one, with an opposition of twenty, and illustrates tho ob-  jeotioh usually mado to a proportional system that by it a strong ma:ority  wonM not bo secured, and bribery  might be resorted to. This- difficulty  | of corrupt means to obtain support  ' -ould be avoided by constituents see-  nj to it that their members were not  bribed.  The great o i' of the present system  is that .independent nun aro not returned lo iiarMam-nt. An M.P., is not  acting for bis country but is a mere  agent for the riding to whioh he his  been clecttd. The ons man constituencies also cause petty patronage in the  civil service.  The remedy sometimes proposed, of  direct legislation does not meet the  numerous cases of complicated problems; tho referendum admits of no oom  promise.  By the "Hare system" oi proportion  al representation, from five to ten  members are elected in each district.  l��ach voter has ono vote, but that  vote is transferable. The voter places  tho figure "1" opposite the name of  ids first choice, "2" opposite his second choice, and so on. 'ihe returning  officers'take the total number of first  choices and divide it by one more than  the number of district members to be  elected, 'ih.s gives "the quota" which  is the least number of votes sufficient  to elect a candidate; and the candidates receiving tho quota are declared  eloeted. Each has the exact quota or  a surplus of votes which he does not  need. The votes of tho largest surplus are then transferred according t0  the wish of each elector to Mb next  available choico indicated on his ballot; (his second choice, or further  choice, may be already elected, and  thus not "available"). Tho surplus  votes of tho candidates who have now  received tho quota are distributed as  before. *  Broportionnl representation is not  untried. It has been in successful operation for three el'Ctions in TaSBUBig  It has been adopted in South Africa,  and is under consideration in western  Australia and New Zeabind, and is  provided for "n the Irish Homo ltule  Act. Tho Upper House of Denmark  has had it Binco 1856 and Danish municipal elections since 1908. PartH of  .Switzerland have had it since 1800,  Belgium since 1809; both Houbob rf  Sweden sin^e 1000; France in 1913;  nnd soveral vears in -Japan.  By proportional representation, tho  power of the nos ' n I mrehasablo  vote is broken.  An apparatus, which it is claimed  will prevent the destruction of ships  by torpedoes or mines has been invent  ed to the British admiralty, whir* Iras  cording to a recent oxchango.
