KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1915.���6 PAGES  City Council Sits  Regular  Three New By-Laws are Introduced to the Aldermen  The oity council mat last .Friday  morning with the Mayor and Alderman  Adams, Copeland, Duggan, Batteafaairy  and Sutherland present.  Amongst th* oorrespondnos was an  offer from the Land ss Agricultural  Co., of Canada offering to r*nt the  two front rooms and one Urge bank  room of the Uelgo-Cnnadien block for  us* as oity offices at an annual rental  of t3W, payable at th* rat* of WO  per month. This rental Was to inelud*  heating. Th* ohsrk was instructed to  reply that owing to it bring so lats  in the year the council did not wish  to take any action but would refer th*  matter to th* incoming council if th*  company so desired.  Mrs. Elizabeth Sutherland wrote asking the city to reimburse her (or injuries received through a fall on a  sidewalk last June. The clerk was  instructed to reply that whilst regretting the acoident the council could  not acknowledge liability.' -  Another letter cam* from the W. C.  T. U., who stated that they had been  asked for a donation towards the support of a former Kelowna woman who  we* an inmate of the Vancouver Salvation Army Home. The Oounoil how-  eved decided that they wer* not in a  position to make any donation.  The Canadian Pacific Railway Co.,  wrote suggesting that an effort be  mad* to furnish them with accounts  for their monthly rates'muoh earlier  than at present, or to oxtend th* tuns  of Payment in which thoy could obtain  their monthly discount. It wBs point  ��1 out - that it required about lUtean  days for a voucher to pass through  tho necessary channels-before payment  could be mado. The clerk said that  at present the rule statements were  handed to tbe company two days before the not war* moiled, and not  later than tho 6th of the month.  It was felt that if possible the wishes of" the company should be respected  in the matter and it was referred to  the Light and Water Committe* to  arrange  Alderman Adams reported that C.  Ainbrogio, who hold a contract from  the oity to deliver cord wood for the  Power house had already brought in  about SI} cords, but had stated that  bo was losing money on it and would  be.unable to fulfil th* same, unlw* a  substantial increase was made in the  price of the wood. Mr. Ambrogio had  undertaken to deliver it for 19.75 per  oord, *nd Alderman Adams suggested  that * further SO cent* per cord be  added in ord*r to aeour* th* delivery  of th* wood.  Th* oounoil after, some di*ou*sion  agreed to this on condition that 1000  cords w*a delivered to th* city. Eighty per osnt of th* price was to fa* paid  as the wood was delivered.  Three by-laws were introduced by  Alderman Sutherland ia aooordanos  with representations which had been  made to th* oounoil. The** by-law*  dealt with proposals to r*duo*|theatre  and pool room lioenoes, and also to  abolish or reduce f**s for- the  reoonnwtion of water *nd light  ssrvioes where thsy b*d been  temporarily cut off. No suggestions  wer* mad* a* to th* probabl* amount  ol the reduction* whioh war* left for  further consideration.

Th* following are the names  of those who have joined since our  last list: T. Watkins, G. U. Longstaf!  II. J. Williams, E: A. Tate, R. S.  Dundee, Brian 0. R. Stephens, .1.  Haynes, M. J.

The instruction is drill and physical  exercises is being pushed iiloug vigorously and already, even without ths  advantage ol uniforms the loico is  beginning to have quite a smart and  business-like air.  Amongst the force are quite a number of single young men who. coining  from some distance in the ooiniryare  unable to remain quartered at tl.iii  own homes and still attend drill. The  finding of suitable accommodation for  suoh is a problem which is deserving j  of some attention. The pay allowed  does not admit of muoh luxurious ex-  Growers Should Organize  For Orchard Protection  By L.

Some steps it is understood have already been taken with this end in view  and suoh consideration will no doubt,  be aPprcciatitl by the boys, who would  thus have some place to read or amuse  themselves us ���n alternative to wandering aimlessly around tho streets.  KELOWNA MAY HAVE UOM1C FOB  WOUNDED SOLDIERS  Kelowna residents will remember the  very generous offer made to tho government a year or two ago by Mr.  Humbler Paul ol 101 acres of valuable  property on the lake shore north from  Kelowna for an old people's home. Although Mr. Paul's offer was at tho  time gratefully acknowledged nothing  further was done apparently- because  there seemed to bo no present demand  for such an institution.  Since that time, however, new necessities have arisen, and Mr. Paul is  now in communication with Premier  MoBride, and through him with the  authorities *t Ottnw,, with a view lo  establishing a home far wounded soldiers returning to Canada.'  According to n despatch to the Exchange Tolegrnph Company from Co-I  penhagon, * dozen German newspapers'  havo been suspended for discussing the'  load question. In his newspaper Dio|  Ziikunft, Maximilian Harden is quoted  as Baying: "We must confess that the  German people lor the moment Hra  suffering great want."

(1th, All farmers nr,.  urged to attend.  �� ��  Miss Fanny Stood, tho Women's Institute lecturer delivered a series ul  interesting lectures last Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the sohool home  Alt the meetings were well attended  and muoh interest was shown.  The "Bean Supper" held last Thursday evening under the auspices of tho  Ladies' Aid received good patronage  and a pleasant evening was passed,  After supper a musical program was  rendered as follows: Two quartettes,  by Mr*. V. Harding, MIsb L. Witabn,  Messrs Weeks and Wade; sketch by Miss  Blanche Ford, Miss Craig and Mrs J  Charlton; Instrumental duet by Mis*  Jones and Mrs. I��slie Dilworth, and a  pianoforte solo by Miss Dilworth. The  pastor, Rev. Gordon Tanner occupied  the chair and in the oourse of the  evening tho Rev. Lister, of Benvoulin  gave an appropriate addre**.  For three weeks through the courtesy of the press, we have discussed  the advantages of Community Organization for Gruitgrowers *s found in  the fruit Protective Associations in  the state of Washington. We have  pointed out th���t while these organisation* were used in Washington primarily to fight fire-blight, the success  obtained in that direction might  equally well be directed to the con  trol of all pests and diseases common  to a community. This fact, wo be  lievc will lend permanency to organiz  ed effort, for in seasons of little dan  ger from blight, interest lags in community endeavor and when the need  again arises, new organization work  has to he undertaken often with considerable loss before the growers of  inspectors can prepare.  By spraying at the same time with  like materials, the fruit growers of a  community eliminate the possibility of  re-infestation from neighboring orchards, if their spraying is thoroughly  administered. When once it is agreed  to do this, it is only n matter of eaoh  grower's carrying out his share of tho  work faithfully. Members of the association must drop personal preferences and experiences, and accept the  conclusions ol the majority, guided by  the advice ol the department of agriculture, in order that the uniformity  of action be as neBr total unanimity as  possible. This is a very important  factor in lhe successful association  operation and is only another manner  of staling what, in tho last article,  was referred to in the following words:  "It will, however, rest ontiroly on the  growers just how strong and workable  the organizations become, and to what  extent the growers in utiy community  are willing to meet eaoh other on a  basis of give and tnke, necessary to  gain united action."  Wo have pointed out that in cases of  nogloot of and open defiance to requirements of pest control, that the  government will feet that, in enforcing  the rules and regulations ol the board  of horticulture, there will be an active  public sentiment behind it, and will  appreciate this united support of ths  growers in enforcing laws necessary to  tho success of fruit growers in any  section.  In our last article we called your  attention to the constantly increasing  problem of efficient inspection of orchards due to tho increased areas in  full bearing, and to the fast that unless the growers organised, this would  soon entail adding more inspectors,  thus, heaping up cost at a time when  economy must be the first inni'dera-  tion in every department. By this  organization ol the growers, great  assistance would be given tbe inspection department, and the amount of  ofliciency of the work done by c:,ch  district inspector enhanced.  Announcement of Organization  Meetings  - Meeting* for organization on the  lines suggested will shortly be called  in Kelowna of whioh further partiou  lars will be given out later,  At the first meeting it is proposed to  briefly outline the advantage* of organizations to the particular problems  of the growers of the community and  the working detail ol oach; also to  at oni> proceed with the organisation  of an association, if it so meets with  the wishes of the fruit growers present. The department of agriculture  wants to emphasize the faot that the  organization meeting, and tho fruit  protective association if the latter is  formed, are your meeting' and  your association, and the total working practicability depends on the extent to which every grower gives his  support. It is therefore essential that  this point be made perfectly clear to  begin with.  Tho Protective Association in  Operation  Tho machinery of this organization,  if we may term it suoh, rests upon the  chairmen or secretaries of the divisions  of th* orchard are* covered by the association, and who in turn, are responsible to tho president. These chairmen must be actual fruit growers in  their respective divisions, men who appreciate the need of oommunity effort,  and ate wUHmr to give their   swvjes  for the inspection and prompt reporting of nny pest or disease vhioh attacks the orchards ol his division���in  calling to the attention of the district inspector neglected orchards, or  in getting action on any problem  which is of common interest to the  neighborhood. It will be optional  with the association as to whether the  chairman of the division be given official recognition by the board of horticulture with power to enter any orchard for inspection purposes.  While without doubt the success ol  the association will largely depend on  the work of the chairman, 8H officers  must be desirous of serving the oommunity by giving earnest thought to  their rospeotive duties. It is the intention of the department of agriculture  that the associations be formed at  first without incorporate powers, and  that the rules and regulators be  drawn to suit the no-sis mid objects of  the association. To th's end the ce-  partment has preparnl lor the e; pio-  val of the members a constitution and  by-laws.  The protective association will offer  them a nucleus for further organization as the benefits and objects of the  working association become established through actual practice. According  to the constitution and by-laws, as  outlined by the department of agriculture, tho officers of the association will  consist of a president, vice-president  and secretary-treasurer, to be elected  at tho general meeting and chosen at  large. For every division of the association a chairman shall be elected at  the annual mooting by ballot of th*  members of the said division. Thee*  chairmen, together with the president  and secretary-treasurer, shall constitute the executive committee, whioh  shall be the governing body. Further  details ���>( tho constitution and by-laws  will not br herein discussed, but the  department believes'it would be well  to name the objects of the organisation at some length.  Objects of the Fruit Protective  Association  Tho   objects   oi   this   organisation  shall be to assist in the complete eradication Bnd control of fire-blight, tbe  control of all pests and disease* common to the district, the fostering of a  spirit of closer    co-operation between  tbe fruit growers and the horticultural  branches of the department of agriculture by���  1.���Promoting the adoption of   uniform methods   for   fighting and  controlling   all insect  pest*   and  diseases of this distriot, and   determining, with the advice of the  department   o'   agriculture,     of  what there   measures shall consist.  2,���Holding mis-lings for the discussion and hearing of lectures, and  for practical demonstrations   on  subjects connected with the theory land practice of fire-blight eradication,    and   of spraying   for  the control   of all peats and diseases attacking the orchards and  gardens of the distriot,  !l���Appoint ii;   chairmen    to act a*  representatives of fruit growers in  their respective divisions, to   assist the distriot inspector in looat  ing outbreaks ol fire-blight   and  other diseases, and to promptly  report them, and to aid in  procuring labor to meet the particular needs of the outbreak   with  the advice of the president of the  association and the distriot fruit  pest   inspector, and to organize  oBmpaign�� of special united effort  against a |iest or disease at opportune times.  4.���Passing resolutions and calling to  the attention of  the  department  of   agriculture   new   and special  needs of the members.  Further Organization Possible  II found expedient, it would be possible to form a fruit protective league,  made up of the presidents and secretaries of th* protective associations of  the Okanagan Valley, to meet and discuss problems of wide interest, The  fruit protective league in the State  of Washington was a decided factor  and help in obtaining their new state  horticultural law, and the league dole-  (Continued on Pag* ��� br)  Agricultural Assn. Finances  Cause Warm Discussion  Th* annual meeting of the Agricultural and Horticultural Association,  which was announced for Tuesday afternoon proved something oi a fiasco,  and it is very evident that interest in  th* association has reached a point  where an energetic revival is urgently  needed. lAfter a wait of several hours  and a canvas in the street a quorum  was at length secured, but those pre*  ent wer* with only * 'ow exceptions  member* of the board. As.it was obviously impossible with such * meeting  to transact any of the regular business of the annual meeting, an ad  journment was made, a further meet  ing t0.be called later.  Before adjourning however, there was  a desultory and more or less heated  discussion, chiefly concerning the fin  ances whioh were in a difficult condition. The principal bone of contention  apparently was'the cost of the sports.  Mr. Lionel Taylor'severely criticised  Past and present directors on this, Bc  count. He said the fall fair was run  as a sports show ���nrl the farmers' part  of it was sidetracked. Not one in ten  of those who attended the sports, he  said, ever went near the exhibition  building. Nearly all the expense attached to the fair was incurred {ry the  sports end of it and the association  had to pay lor it without any real  benefit to their true objects, that ol  holding tt farmers' agricultural show.  If it had not been for the cost this  year of the sports the association  would have been able to pay all their  prize money and show a good surplus.  AMernian Rayiner, however and several others declared that if they did  not have good sports they would not  get the people there at all. People  would not walk all that way to see  a lot of vegetables even though they  were good ones.  President Copeland admitted that the  sports thia year had cost too muoh,  but he contended warmly that anyone  who had been on the committee and  had known tho conditions would have  done just the same thing. It looked  at the time as though they wer* going  to have the biggest and bast show they  h*d ever had. Tbe presence of some  four or five thousand soldiers at Vernon and the promisee and assurance*  they reoeivod th*l at least two or  three thousand would bo making the  trip down to Kelowna induced them  to spend more than they would otherwise have done. The business men of  the town too had urged them to go  ahead and had promised support, and  in the end had done nothing.  There was also a* good deal of talk  about the non-payment of prize money, and it seemed to be generally felt  that there wo* not much hope of improvement until all prises could b*  paid at the olose of each fair.  Dr. Boyoe thought the-present directors should continue to hold office for  another year until things mended,  making us* of the experience gained,  and proposed that the entire board be  re-elected. This was seconded by' Mr.  Lionel Taylor.  'The directors, however, could not  see things in that way, und proceeded  one after another to voice his fixed  determination not to stand again. Tho  feeling w*s strong amongst them that  they had worked hard and given their  time to the fair only to be subjected  to unfair oritioism, and to be denied  the iproper support o' farmers and the  business men.  Mr. E. R. Bailey however put * batter tone into the meeting with on optimistic speech. He said the mistake  had been made a lew years ago in putting up, the new building without first  providing the funds, thus assuming a  burden of debt which was taking all  the prise money to pay lpff. Next year  however, he said the building would  be paid for and the society would be  in a position to pay all its prises after that.  He appealed for the loyally of the  farmer just a little longer and-the difficulty would be passed. Evon though  they did not get all their iprise money  for the pastiyear or two they could  feel that it was not lost but had gone  into the provision of a handsome building which would be theirs clear of  dabt for the future, and the assocta-  tion would be free to go ahead.  It was decided to prepare a fuH etat*  inent of tho financial affairs of the  association, and make a more urgent  appeal to the farmers to lift it out  of the'hole.   o 1   Mr, Tom Morrison returned from the  coast thi* afternoon.  More Kelowoa Men  Return Froni tbe Front  Large Crowd Give the Boys  Enthusiastic Welcomes  Three more of Kelowna's wounded  heroes have returned this week from  the war, and the steam whistles and  cheering crowd* whioh welcome them  home have hod a busy time.  On Saturday, came home "Billy Wilson, one of Kelowna'* popular young  men who enlisted early in the war,  leaving here on August 17th, 1914 for  Victoria, where he was one of th*  men selected to make up the first Canadian draft. About 100 went from  B. C, but "Billy" was tho only Kelowna man selected so he joined with  several hundred others selected from  the various provinces and proceeded  immediately     to     Salisbury     Plain,  After a brief period of two week* he  wa8 transshipped to France to reinforce  the depleted ranks of the Princess Patricia Light Infantry, the history of  which regiment is too well known to  need further comment at this time.  For more than three month* fr0m  this time on "Billy" was in tbe thiok  ol the fighting in northern France end  gium, and although the ranks ol  his regiment suffered almost complete  destruction on several occasions, ho,  along with a handful of the original  unit managed to escape until early  May when the "Prinooss Pats"  who were holding a section of the fire  trenches in the vicinity of "Hin 60".  were subjected to a terrific bombardment from the German artillery. Once  more the ranks of his regiment were  severely thinned, and this time "Billy"  suffered a wound from a shrapnel shell which burst immediately in  front of the parapet, killing three of  his comrades by his side and inflicting on him several severe wounds  which necessitated his bcin���' sent immediately to the hospital in the rear  and later to England where he was  treated for several months before becoming sufficiently convalescent to r*  turn home.  Before leaving England "Billy" found  time to pay a visit to ShorncKff*  where he found as he describes ft "a  corner of Kelowna," for there he saw  the familiar faces that were absent  on the wharf;as the steamer pulled in  on Saturday.  "Kelowna is certainly doing her part  in the great struggle" he says.  We are   indeed   sorry to note that  Billy" has suffered th* loss of on*  eye which necessitates his wearing ���  shield. Other wounds about the face  have been Bo treated that they are almost unnoticahle beyond a slight d��  pression on the right cheek, where a  piece of the bursting shell lodged. Thia  pieoe he is keeping as a souvenir. It  was a portion of the timing mechanism the dial figures being plainly distinguishable.  ���        ���  On Monday the returning warrior  was Lance Corporal -lack Anderson of  the .K.L.O., bench who also has seen  some exciting service with tho 7th Battalion during the earlier days of ths  w*r when the Gormans wore making  their way towards Paris. Anderson  was wounded at Ypres by a shot in  the hand which caused him to lose  the use of several fingers. Hi* brother who went with him to the front  was reported "missing" some lime  ago.  On Tuesday Sergt. .lack Taylor "re  turned and was treated to the usual  ovation. He was also with th* 7th  Battalion and received hi* injuries  about the time of the Ypres'fight, lis  had the unpleasant experience of being blown clean out of the trench by  an exploding shell. He had to crawl  back again to cover under a perfect  hail of rifle fire, fortunately without  being hit. He suffered severely however from shock, and has moreover  sustained serious injuries to his lungs  by the fearful gas used by the cultured Germans.  Mrs. W. C. Duggan returned on this  afternoon's boat from a visit to En-  derby.  The British Govt, order prohibiting  the sale of liquor except between noon  and 2 p.m. and 0.30 to 9.30 ,at night  becomes effective today. Tbe measure  is unpopular among th* working clauses and the liquor interests declare  these trade will suffer. An attempt to  create a "horn,, trade" win be mad*.  san*****,*!*****!

No  damage was done, but had it etruok  the building I do not think any of it  would be loft, nor any of us to tell  tho lalo. But this is war, and it is  surprising how quickly ono grows accustomed to it. At first I could not  sloop on account of the noise, but now  I don't think I could sleep if it were  stopped.

German Version ef a  London Zeppelin Raid  The' "New York American" publishes  tbe following German account oi a  Zeppelin raid on London. It is a  translation, (ays the writer from a  Hamburg Weekly newspaper:  Our Zeppelin received ���orders at 6  o'clock in the/ evening t0 fly front our  hangar in Belgium for an attack 'on  London.  Our captain steered by compass  straight for London.  Our true German hearts beat Ugh  this night with die hope oWoing soma  great and irreparable damage to J.on  don, the capital of that horrible country which has so .basely and treacherously attacked Germany.  Perhaps we should destroy their  house of parliament with its benches  nf timid, chattering demagogues,, or  then- w��r office, where the chief British  mercenary Kitchener works, lives and  sleeps, or the Foreign office, where the  scoundrel Grey conspires, or the offioe  dwellings of the Prime Minister and  the Chancellor of the Exchequer, situated on the notorious Downing street.  Well did I know the looation of all  these places from my long residence in  London.  Perhaps we might strike a school or  a hospital or a party of women. We  should regret such accidents,. but it is  impossible to modify our splendid and  effective aerial warfare simply because  innocent oombatants place themselves  in the way of legitimate objects ol attack.  Everybody admits that it would be,  right to kill Asquith or Lloyd George,  should we refrain from dropping *  bomb on one ol these monsters because with cowardly cunning he keeps  his family about him?  Th* Bomb Machine  If we can discover the topographical  position of these searchlights and but.  teriee we oan establish the other pntn  oipal centres of the city from them  and thr0w our bombs with some ap  proach to accuracy.  To establish the location of these  points has been the work of our earlier air reconnaissances. We have, for  instance, found that powerful searchlights and batteries are operated ai  Woolwich on the extreme eastern outskirts of London, at St. James' Park,  whioh is in the centre of the metropolis, at Hampseead Heath on the north  and at the Crystal Palace, south of  the Thames,  The coM was intense and could be  felt through the fleeoe-lined olothes  and heavy felt shoes with which we  were provided.  Our Zeppelin c*rried four tons of the  most destruoti/e explosives ever limited by science��� sufficient to annihilate  the heart of London. The amount was  divided into 40 bombs of 100-lbs,  each, and eighty of fifty pounds each.  We made out the mouth of the  Thames from certain lightships and  shore lights that have been maintain  ed.  Tho bombs are discharged from tubes  pointing downward from a fiteel plate  in the floor- of the airship. The bomb  is furnished with a steel handle, and  by means of this it Ib lowered into  the tube. A bolt fitting into a hole  in the bomb holds it in the tube.  Tho marksman presses his foot on an  eleceric button in the plate in the floor  of the car and this withdraws the  bolt, releasing the bombs. He can  drop two bombs at once if he wishes,  and the third two seconds later.  St. Paul's  To hit a mark half an aore in extant  is good marksmanship from a Zeppelin  In praotice a regiment of wooden dummies Was set up in a field and one of  our aerial marksmon suoceeded in  wiping out the whole regiment.  One of our 100 pound bombs striking fairly will destroy any exulting  building, not constructed purely a* a  fortifioation. Kven if it strikea In a  streot, it will dig a hole �� hundred feet  deep.  We knew that in a few minuton wo  should bo over the heart of London.  Our daring commander decided to sail  very slow, following tho course of the  Thames, which he knew would take  him near all the object ��� ho wished to  reach.  Suddenly the huge outline of a building loomed under our noses. Seen  against the dull, cloudy sky, It appeared colossal. We almost struck it.  It was a church! It was St. Paul's  Cathedral.  An instantaneous turn ol the elevating rudder saved us from a collision  with the monstrous dome.  A few seconds more straight to the  westward and wo knew that wo were  over tho centre of official and fashionable London.  Our oommander ordered the bombs  discharged as fast as we could tkrow  them. The ship ciroled slowly round  and round, peppering death on the  solar plexus of th* British Empire.

It was a night of terror in London!  One For Old Nelson!  The searchlights ��nd the guns played upon us constantly. At night tho  anti-aircraft fighters use shells that  spread a long trail of luminous red  smoke through tho darkness in order  to mark the position of the airship  for other gunners firing shrapnel,  It is exceedingly difficult for a gunner to hit an airship at a height of  8,000 feet, or oven lower. We enjoyed  a feeling of tremendous power and security.  At last we could see the outlines of  buildings on the ground. Dolow us  was a great o|>en square and in the  centre s very high slender ooluin. It  was the bombastic British monument  to their noted Admiral Nelson standing in the centre of Trafalgar square.  Givo old Nelson a bomb" roared  our bravo oommander.  Down went a bomb aimed straight  at the head ol th* one-eyed admiral.  The frovent wisheB ol every man in our)  crow wont with it. Whether it struck  tho mark time alone will show.  Wo had ventured too near tho earth,  and an unusually well-aimod shot hit  the forward part of the vossol.  One of our mechanical exports in bis  anxiety to ascertain the nature of tho  damage, climbed out on a stay, fell  and was, of course, lo*t.  Wo throw all our supply ol bombs  upon London and then turned lor home  again.  There are certain details of tho raid  which I should not wish to reveal, and  could not reveal without making myself liable to the death penalty.  An attack by a Zeppelin is always  accompanied by other aircraft, both  dirigibles and aeroplanes, in' order to  giv0 protection to our Capital airships  and oreate confusion aiming the enemy.  The English never know whether they  are firing at a Zeppelin or a semirigid dirigible ol similar shape, but  comparatively small importance.  Postage on Parcels Going  to Troops in France  The department is in receipt oi applications to have parcels addressed l0  our soldiers in Franco sent free or at  reduced rates of Postage, there evident-  ly. being an impression that the department has control of these rates  and Could do as it wished, but this  is not bo, as the question of poatago  is fixed by international agreement, so  that it is not within tho power of the  Canadian Post Office Department tci  undertake to carry the parcels free oi  at a reduced rato of postage. Under  international law, provision is made  for the free transportation of parcels  for prisoners of war, but this privi  lege does not cutend to parcels (oi  troops ongaged in active servlco, ' not  is it within the power of the depart  ment to so extend it.  The rate of postage required on par  eels addressed to the troops dopends  upon tho locution of tho addressee. II  the addressee is in England, the rat  on pureels for Fngland applies, which  is twelve cents per pound; whilst, il  ho is in France, the parcels are subject to tho rates applicable to parcels  for France, which are as follows:  1 lb.s 32c.

In all eases parcels for the troops  must be addressed "care Army Post  Office, London, England" but this does  not in any way affoot the rate of post-  ago which depends entirely upon thq  location of tho addressee.

Women Do No Posses  Inventive Faculties  Have women biological limitations  which prevent them from being bright  and shining lights within those fie'ds  of endeavor in which men have labored from time immemorial? There are  those who say yes, and there are those  who say no, but it remains a fact  that whether women have biological  limitations or not, they have nevor '  revealed in the past, and they do not  reveal in the present, muoh of that  originality and initiative which .wo  have come to call genius.  Dr. Simon Basuch. of New York,  insists upon the conception of female  biological limitations, and he declares  that in medicine "masculine qualities  are calculated to overcome obstaclos  whioh tho truly feminine temperamental qualities that spring from lhe biological maternal souroo a'o incapable  of coping with. It is D biological law  of nature that bars women from ori  ginal and great epoch-making achievement" ���  Dr, lluruch Buys that the cry of the  feminist orators is that women have  been household slaves for centuries,  and then ho puts this pertinent query,  to which ho gives a portincnt answer:  "Has any ono of those sieves," he  asks, "initiated a single great,idea to  emancipate her sox from tho enslaving  drudgery of spinning, weaving, ar/winj:,  cooking, laundering, sw'ceping, etc?

CAMPBELL  ���Phon* No. 100  In a lecture given by Evangelist Potter in the board of trade rooms last  Sunday afternoon he stated that inseparably connected with this w*r ia  the eastern question whioh involves th*  fate of the Ottoman Empire.  While for four hundred and sixty-  two years he said, the grim contest  has been to drive the invader back  across the Bosphorus by war and diplomacy,, the reason why the Turk has  not been dislodged long ago was well  stated by Lord Salisbury while prime  minister of England.  "Turkey ia in that remarkable condition that it has stood for half a  century, mainly because the great  powers of the world have resolved that  for tbe peace of Christendom it is  necessary that the Ottoman Empire  should stand. The danger, if the Ottoman Empire should fall, would not  merely be the danger that would  threaten the territories of which that  Empire consists; it would be the danger that the fire there lit should  spread to otner nations, and should  involve all that is most powerful and  civilized in Europe in a dangerous and  calamitous contest. That is a danger  whioh has not paased away."  The Duke of Argyle in 1805 said:  '''ft is not too much to say that  England has twice saved Turkey from  complete subjection since 1653. It is  largely���mainly���due to our action  that she now exists at all as an independent power."  .lust nineteen years to the day from  the time Lord Salisbury made the foregoing statement Premier Asquith  stood on the same platform and announced to the world:  "The entrance of the1 Turk into this  war means the death knell to the Ottoman dominion, not only in Europe,  but in Asia."  The evidence is increasing, said Mr.  Potter that the prophecy of Premier  Asquith will be literally fulfilled in the  not far distant future, whioh brings to  prominence the question "What will  the removal of the Ottoman Empire  from Europe mean to all the world?"  It has long been the belief of many  Bible students thgt the fall of the  Turkish power would mark the beginning of the reign of Christ and what  is generally termed the end of the  world. ���  Martin Luther once said:  "If wo beat back the Turk, the prophecy of Daniel will be fulfilled and  the end will be at hand. Then the  judgment day is surely at our doors."  Over one hundred thousand Seventh  Day Adventists, declared the lecturer,  now believe with Martin Luther that  the "King of the North" of the pro  phecy of Daniel definitely refers to the  Turkish power. .  After presenting what he considered  clear Bible evidence that Luther was  right in suoh interpretation, the Evangelist pointed out that it is definitely,  predicted that before Turkey falls  an empire, their capital will be  moved from Constantinople to Jerusalem and in the words of the prophecy  will there "como to his end and none  shall help him. And at that time shall  Michael stand up, the great Prinoe  whioh standeth for the children of thy  people, and there shall be a time u  trouble, such as never was, since  there was a nation even to that same  time; and at that time thy people  shall be delivered, every one that shall  be found written in the book. And  many of them that sleep in the dust  of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life and some to everlasting  contempt." Dan. 11:45, 12:1,2.  In other words the time of the fall  of the Ottoman Empire was very closely conneoted with the time of the  world'* greatest trouble and the second ooming of Christ and tho resurrection.  "Aa weather bureau* send out warnings of ooming storms" concluded Mr.  Potter, "that reapers may arouse to  save their harvest*, so the report of  the world's greatest storm is sent to  arouse men and women to the need  of the hour, for the great Evangelist  Moody truly said: "There is hardly  any church that does not make a great  de*l of baptism; but in all of Paul's  epistles I believe baptism is spoken of  only thirteen times. He writes of the  returo of our Lord fifty times, and yet  tho church has hgd very little to say  about it.' Now I. oan see a reason for  this. The devil does not want us to  see this truth; for nothing would wake  up the ohureh so much."���Con.  The Canadian Government buffalo  herd was started in 1807 by the gift  of three Texas buffalo presented by  Mr. T. G. Blaokstook, or Toronto, to  Hooky Mountain Park. These animal*  were placed on exhibition in the paddock at Banff, and the following year  their number was increased by a similar gift from Lord Strathcona, who  presented the government with thirteen  head from the Silver Heights herd nt  Winnipeg. This herd gradually increased until by 1909 it totalled nearly 100  head.  In 1906 tbe government entered into  negotiations with Michael Pablo, of  Montana, for his herd of pure blood  bison on the Flathead Indian reserve.  This herd was known to be the largest  herd of pure blood bison then in existence but was not believed to number more than about 300 head.  Pablo had for years tried t0 get the  American government to give him  enough land on whioh to keep the herd  and at last they announced that the  Flathead reserve was lo be thrown  open, which meant that Pablo would  be forced out and compelled either to  find a new range or a purchaser for,  the herd. - ���  Howard Eaton, the well-known guide  and friend of Theo. Roosevelt, heard  of the matter and secured an option  from Pablo for $300 per head. He then  went to Washington and tried to get  the U. S. Government to buy the herd.  Roosovelt and the Hison Society urged  the purchase but congress refused to  pass an appropriation and Pablo had  to look somewhere else. Through Alex.  Ayotte, Immigration Agent at Missoula, the matter was brought to the attention of the Canadian government  which realized tho opportunity offered.  Before the United States authorities  realized what was happening the bargain was completed. It was supposed  that there would be about 300 buffalo,  but the total finally captured amount  ed to 709. The price paid was ?250  per head, f.o.b. at Edmonton.  The task of rounding them up proved much more difficult than was anticipated. It called for uerseveranoe,  endurance and horsemanship of the  highest order. The buffalo were e��  tremely wild and swift of foot and  could ouerun the fastest horses.  The first year, 1907, 400 buffalo were  secured���200 males were shipped in the  spring and 211 oows and calves fol.  lowed in the autumn. As it had not  been possible to get Buffalo Park  fenced and ready in time for these  arrivals, they were placed in Elk Island Park,- at Lamont, Alta.���a fenced  enolosure, 16 square miles in area, established several years before for the  protection of elk and moose.  There are still known to be a large  number of buffalo left on the range  and although Pablo now had many  other offers he agreed to let the Canadian government have the remainder  at the same pric*. In the autumn of  1908, therefore, another - round-up was  made, and eight miles of wing fence  and a large corral were built. After  six weeks hard riding the animals were  all rounded up and the tired cowboys  went home to sleep. That night, led  by an old olever bull, the entire herd  escaped by climbing an almost perpendicular cliff and broke away to the  mountains.  The next ye*r Pablo decided to put  them in huge wooden oagos out in the  range and to haul these oagos th*  thirty miles to the station. There they  were unloaded Into a small corral to  await shipment. The last and final  struggl* then occurred���that of getting  them on board the train. The great  brutes resisted to the last. It took  nine days to load 200 and 8 of them  killed themselves in their struggles.  The majority had to be drawn on the  oars by means of a blook and tackle.  During 1909 the buffalo from Elk  Island Park were also transferred to  Buffalo Park at Wainright, Alt*., with  the exception 0f about 60 which, were  left at Lamont for exhibition purpose*.  Last year the buffalo at Banff, with  the exception of 17 male*, wer* also  transferred. There are now 13 at  Banff, 108 *t Elk Island, and approximately 3000 at Buffalo Park.

Conclusion  In presenting   to    the fruit growers  something of the possibilities aad advantages of organizing "Fruit Protective associations" the department    of  agriculture has hutl in mind three particular requirements    of fruit growers  and of the government officials st-rving  them, namely;  1 .-The need of uniform recommendations to fruit growers and    gardeners, by nil officials of the horticultural branches of th,. department of Qgfioulturo.  2.���The  need  of  actual   organization  by fruit growers ��s a means    of  putting  these uniform  recommendations into UBe, and guining fuller co-operation between tho growers Und government ollicer-  .3.���The need of orchard records, as a  permanent    guide  to  the inspectors  and  fruit  growers in    their  effort to keep the district clean.  Some of these points have  not been  fully discussed, but will be taken up at  the  organization meetings.    Tho    department    of   agriculture    wishes     to  thank and express its appreciation to  all who hare contributed suggestions  and ideas as brought aut in tho   preceding  articles, and especially does it  feel obligated to Mr. F. K. DeScllem,  Inspector-at-Large, Yakima; Mr. Luke  Powell,  Entomologist, Louisville, Ky.  Jn closing,    tho department of agriculture    wishes    to    urge every fruit  grower  to  attend the  meeting  for organization  in    his respective district,  and to give it his active support.  Yours very truly,  L. L. iULMKK,  Assistant Inspect ,r  of Fruit Pests  Organize at Coldstream  for Fruit Protection  itnukks  .

WESTERN 0ANNJ3RS LTD  In accordance with the articles on  "Organizing for Orchard Protection",  which have uppeared in these columns  for some weeks past, the fruit growers  of the Coldstream and Long Lake districts last week held a meeting for  the purpose of considering the plan of  organizing a "Fruit Protective Association" to better control the pests  and diseases of the orchard. It was well  attended and the meeting endorsed tbe  plan presented by Mr. Palmer, with the  following resolution: "That coop'sra*  live efforts through tho growers, as  suggested by the plan presented by Mr,  Palmer, are necessary to cope with  fruit posts and disonsos,"  This resolution was followed by n  lively discussion on the" particului  manner ��>f putting into practice the  ideas on "Orchard Protection" whioh  th(> mooting unanimously agreed were  necessary. A number of growers maintained that the provisions of tho plan  suggested should be added or incorporated in the articles of the association  of the Coldstream I'ru'i Growers Association, but tho majority of the growers present opposed this, in favor of  organizing for the specific purpose ol  of adequately fighting their pests and  diseases, and ppHcing their orchards to  detect outbreaks of "Codling Moth"  and "San -lose Scale," believing that  if it was deemed an advantage they  could affiliate later. Consequently the  following motion was lost: "That this  'meeting being in sympathy with the  suggestions made by Mr. Palmer, ro-  qUest the executive nI* the Coldstream  Fruit (-rowers Association, to take immediate action in can unction with Mr.  Palmer to get the objects carried out,  altering if nscessury the articles of the  asso" iat'u n " nnd tha amendment" us  follows carried: "That the fruit grow  era present form a separate association this evening with the special object of fighting the pests in the orchard."  Due to the lateness of the hour, it  was thought unwise to try and complete the organization in one even'ng,  and a provisional committee of five  were elected trt" draft, in conjunction  with Mr. Palmer a constitution and  by-laws and to report at n .fiirthe  meeting (0 be held within three weeks.  The following composed tho committee:  Mr. Howe, Mr. Giles, Capt. Wilmot,  Mr.  Cossett  and  Mr. Venables.  We Buy Chickens j  and Ducks  BEST PRICES PAID  The City  Park  Abboll Street     .

The course covered suoh vital  subjects as "The Prevention of Disease," "Care of Patients," "Practioal  Nursing" "First Aid," "Serious Kmor-  genoios," and "Mnternity."  a  The regular monthly meeting of the  Women's Institute is to be held in th*  Board of Trade rooms Suturd*y, when  Mrs. (Dr.) MuthiBOn will givo a demonstration of Christmas cooking.

Watch the advertising columns and see the  class of merchants and manufacturers that use  this method of publicity. You will find they an  the most successful in their respective Uvea.  Many of them have tried other methods, but experience has shown them that newspaper advertising has no equal in bringing results. The reason for this is that the paper is read in the home,  when the mind of the reader is in a receptive condition, and on the lookout for anything that will  make life easier or more pleasant.  1 SSiCLS  SVNOCATK M  PUBLIC SCHOOL ATTENDANCE RE  PORT FOR NOVEMBER  Div.
