KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1916.-6 PAGES  ) 1.50 Per Annum  School Estimates Are  Laid Before Council  Calgary Cafes Wrecked  by Mob of Soldiers  Call for School Levy of $11,770  ���Further Wood Contracts  Let By Council  Tho estimates of expenditure on the  public sohool for the current your formed tho main topic of discussion at the  meeting of the oity council last Friday morning. There was H full at-  tendgnoe of the council when Trustee  W. It. Trench submitted the estimates  as follows:  Teachers'   salaries.   113,900  Less Govt, grant.      5,720-   *7',MO.O0  Janitors' Salaries      1,500.00  Secretary's salary .. .. ,. ..       300.00  Delegates' expenses  50.00  Library grant  50.00  Teachers' supplies        300.00  Medical examination i        400.00  Trustees convention fees . .. 50.00  Fuel        800.00  Janitors' supplies        125.00  Building ropairs        200.00  Light, water '& scavenging .       350.00  Grounds maintenance and improvements .. . .. . .. ��� 200.00  Insuranoo i       8M.O0  Domestic science and manual  training supplies        100.00  Sundries :���        300.00  Total   J12.819.00  From this must be deducted the  amount standing to the  credit of the Board from  1915    1,048.60  Leaving   to   be   assessed   in  1916    111,770.40  Trustee Trench in addressing the  counoil concerning the estimates ob  presented, stated that no provision  had been mado with respect to , the  Domestic Science and Manual Training  classes. After the summer vacation  the Board' waB expected to take over  the equipment used in the olasses and  this would entail an expenditure of  J400. The Board however were at  present negotiating with the government with a view to the latter under  present circumstances assuming this  obligation themselves. In answer to  the Mayor, who pointed out that the  estimates called for an expenditure of  approximately $1,000 more than last  year* Trustee Tronoh stated that this  was due mostly to the fact that some  $800 of fire insurance premiums fell  due this year.  Mayor Jones enquired as to whether  any reduction of the teacher's* salaries  Dad been taken into consideration in  preparing the estimates.  Trustee Trench replied that the staff  had been reduced last year, resulting  in a considerable saving. With reference to making a general reduction of  salaries the Board was of the opinion  that they were not in a position to  tako any action in this matter until  the deferred salaries had been Paid.  He also said the Board had serious  doubts as to whethej tho small amount  that oould be saved by a general reduction would warrant the risk of disorganizing the whole staff.  The estimates were laid upon the  table for further consideration.  Mr. F. W.' Groves laid before the  council the results of his investigation  into the ownership of property and  foreshore at liwoorner of the Park  near the intersection of Bernard avenue and Abbott street. The council  after considering tho matter decided to  apply to the provincial government  for a crown, grant or soma other form  of control of tile portion of foreshore.  The oonsUablo's report for the month  of January showed only three oases  had been before the magistrate, two  of which wero for being drunk' end disorderly and one-for having opium in  possession. The total fines coll acted  ���mounted to $22.50.  Amongst tho correspondence was a  recommendation from the city ot New  Westminster that thc Kelowna oounoil  join in opposing the application of  the B. G. Telephone Go., for a Dominion charter, with a view to obtaining  a restriction of the unnecessarily wide  powers) enjoyed by that company under their 'present charter. It was  decided to endorse the recommendation.  The Dominion Inspector of Electrl  city asked whether it would be convenient for tho oity to have meters  tested during the montM of May 0r  June. The olerk was instructed to  reply -that arrangements would be  mado upon any date convenient to the  inspector.

The places nro owned by the White  Lunch -Company, and F. H. Nuegol is  i manager. Mr. Naegel denied that  ho hdd dismissed any returned soldiers .or thftt ho had hired any Germans, but said that he had had occasion to dismiss a man who had at  one time been ��� soldier but was not  now with tho overseas forceB.  Dates for Bye-Elections Fixed  Official aououncement is made that  tho first of ttie provincial bye-elections  is to bo held in Rowland, February  26, with nominations two days before  that. It is also understood that the  Vancouver bye.eliction will be held on  the same day, ths writ to be issued  next Tuesday,' February 15th, eleven  days intervening before the date of  P'/'ing.  Hon- Lorno Campboll has already  left for Rossland, where the contest  will be with the Liberal candidate,  Mayor Wilson. R. T. Evans is the  returning officer in Rossland.  The (bye-election in Victoria will   not,  according to the present intention, be  held until, several days following    the  contests in Vancouver nnd Rossland.   O �����  The military bail held last Thursday  evening in Morrison's Hall proved1 to,<  be ono of the largest nnd most successful affairs of its kind ever held  in Kelowna.  The American Club in Toronto ha��  been destroyed by fire supposed to Vie  caused by alien enemies.  ��� The .French and British governments  have agreed to pay an indemnity to  all neutrals who suffered damage in  the recent Zeppelin raids over Salonika.  Fourteen Canadian battalions are  shortly to be sent as another contingent to England. The 62nd from  Vancouvor and the 67th from Victorin  are to be included.  Tho capture by the Russians of -the  city of Erzerum, Hie chief city ol  Turkish Armenia, and a point vital  to the campaing in that part was  reported in despatches-yesterday. The  Capture included a large number of  prisoners, guns, and stores. The city  is tho centre of an important road  centre.  and Mr. A. R. Davy for scavenging  services for one year from March 1st  next was read, nnd on the motion of  Alderman Rattcnbury, seconded by  Alderman Raymer it was decided to  ratify the agrcemout at a salary oi  $125 per month. x  Alderman  Dtig;u�� ������   d  having  been informed by Mr. 0, Ambrogio  that it would be impossible for him  to complete his contract of 1000 cords  of wood at tho price of 83.25 per cord  owing*- to tho fact that owners of  land wore now demanding 40 cents per  cord for tho wood, whereas heretofore  they had given the wood for the  clearing of the land. If the Council  would increase the price to $3.7-5 per  cord ho would be in a position to deliver any quantity of wood. With reference to xthe Old oontract Mr. Ambrogio oxpeptod to deliver approximately 750 corda at tho figure mentioned therein.  It was decided to place an order  with Mr. Ambrogio for 750 cords of  wood at 83.75 per cord, tho wood to  come within the specificHtions contained in the city's advertisement.  Tenders for supplying the city with  wood were als0 received from J. Copeland and Arthur Raymer, at $4.00 per  cord. It was decided that both tenders be accepted for 250 corda and the  necessary contracts prepared *  Alderman Dttggan reported that Messrs. Androws and Forsythe had loft  their work at the. power house, where  they had been employed hauling fuel,  to enlist with His Majesty's forces.  Mr. D. Hookhara had been, rn?<-ged to  fill the vacancy thus created.  The meeting then adjourned to Friday. Februar* 36th.  Westbank News  (From our own CorrMpomUnU  Many of our youthful element have  for the past week been enjoying skating on the lake near the Westbank  wharf.  * ��  Mr. and Mrs. Sinclair and Mrs. S.  Blackwood have been the latest victims of the la grippe epidemic, hut we  are glad to report they are speedily  recovering from their illness.  * *  Mrs.. C. Warren of the tftkevlotV Hotel has been ice-bound at the landing  for several days; but as boat qoramuni  cation is again established with this  end of the lake, she is expected home  at an early date.  * *  Mr. Lindstrom pleasantly surprised  Mrs. Lindstrom and his friends * last  Saturday by his unexpected arrival  from the prairie. Mr. Lindstrom, owing to the uncertainty of the Sicamous  being able to proceed south beyond  Kelowna, crossed on the ice to the  Westbank Ferry Slip and from there  walked eight miles to his home here.  * *  To Messrs. James and Haymin- O'  Westbank belongs the unenviable honor of being ;the first to crosB tl��o lake  on the ice this winter, from Slwalh  Point to Kelowna. The two mile  journey proved uneventful till, when  aboutj one hundred yards ftom tho  Kelowna shore, Mr. JIayman hod the  misfortune of breaking through the  ice made weak by the recent passing  of the ''Sicamous;" however Mr.  James came to the rescue, and Mr.  Hayman seems little the Worse for his  experience. The ice at the time had  about an average of three inches in  thickness.  * *  "Tho 'Sicamous' and th-s Icj." It  is. not evciy winter that dwellers in  the Sunny Okanagan have the opportunity of walking with case upon the  frozen surface of the lake to meet a  boat, or of witnessing mail being  hauled for a quarter of a mile nn t?'.eds  to the Bhore from an ice-bound C.i'.R.  steamer. But such was the experience  of several people at Gellatly last  Sunday morning.  Word waB ' received last Saturday  night at Westbank that the steamer  would leave Kelowna at 8 o'clock on  Sunday morning in an endeavor to  break a passage to Westbank, Gellatly  and Peachland, all of which places hid  been without mail .nnce Wednesday  night. For over a week the Sic-imous  had not been able to land at W-Jflt-  bank) and so on Sunday morning a  score of people from the district assembled at Gellatly, situated on a  point about one mile south of flefrt-  bank wharf to see if a landing could  be made even there; for owing to tin  continued cold weather and the fact  that the boat had not broken her  channel for three (days, it was Berious-  ly debated whether the boat oould  make any heajdway through the ico  at all.  A heavy snowstorm mad0 it impossible to preceive the ljoat's approach,  but about 11 o'clook a nearby crushing nnd rumbling noise told that the  long awaited has at kit arrived. Soon  the boat's whistlo ' sounded. Just  then the snow clouds lifted and not  more than half a mile d.Blant was tho  "Sicamous," her bow thrust bravely  into the ice, her stalwart form slink*  i��j* prcceptibly with the strain ol fom-  bat, her funnel pouring forth a volume  of smoke worthy of a man-of-war and  her paddle wheel kicking up a s|i,y  which would shamo a good-sized water  fall. The whole scene was intensely  picturesque. t  Upon closer scrutiny one could see  the ice being systematically ! token  down by the weight of the boat and  being constantly poshed off to either  side of the boat. Slow but sure the  advance continued at the rate of about  four miles on hour till after much  hard work a point opposite the wharf  was reached and then came a halt.  Soon n gang-plank was placed on the  ice down which Borne deck hands oould  be seen descending with several bags  of mail; these they quickly placed on a  sled and then thiy started off on a  trot to the shore, about n quarter of  a mile ftway. Tho people on shore  not wishing to miss this rare sport,  hurried out to meet the mail carrier*,  and so0n the ice was alivt> with human  forms. The next ��glance seaward  showed the plucky skipper, Captain  Peterson, walking shoreward on  the ice. Mr. D. Gellatly advanced to  meet him and one can hardly imagine  a more unique spot for an interview.  Soon everyone gained confidence and  all walked out to get a view of    the  Rutland News  (ftom ov owb Corrw*��nd��it.)  Mr. Geo. Sdiofieid left Saturday last  on a short visit to Vancouver.  A gleigh load of Rutlanders journeyed into town last Thursday evening  to attend the military ball, and judging by their report- the affair was a  great success.  The Women's Institute held their  regular meeting last Thursday at the  home of Mrs. W. G. Sohell1. Mrs. S.  Gray was elected secretary in succession to Mrs. Harrison who found it  necessarj: to resign.'  Next Sunday evening at the Methodist church the Rev. Gordon Tanner  wiH discuss th�� subject " Saturday or  Sunday," which is the Sabbath? A  special invitation is given to Seventh  Day Advent ists and their friends     to  bo present.  *        *  The meeting of the Farmers' Organization Association held Monday evening'last discussed amongst other important subjects the' matter of "Orchard Projection," and ft committee  of six was appointed to take charge  of that work. It is proposed to divide the Rutland district into four  sectionB with a representative in each  who will see that proper measures are  taken to keep down pests and diseases of every kind.  ^ ��� ��  The Rutland Women's Institute held  n social in the schoolroom Tuesday  night in aid- of the' Red Cross fund.  Mr. E. Mugford occupied the chair.  There wns a good attendance and everyone en'oyed the excellent program  provided. The following musical  items were rendered: Pianoforte duet  by the Misses Dalgleish; solo by Mrs.  Victor Dilworth; pianoforte solo by  Miss Flossie ])il worth; solo by Miss  Amy Fleming; reading by Miss Rae;  duet by Mrs. Lome Fleming and Miss  Flossie Dilworth and a solo by Mrs.  Mugford.' A novel feature of the eve-  njng.was an archery contest. Refreshments were served by the ladies. The  total receipts amounted to $27.70,  which sum, less a nnaall amount for  expenses will go to swell the Red  Cross funds.  Women Should Help by  Working for Red Cross  "The girU and women in the city,"  says a note handed in from the  the local organization this week,  ^'should impress upon themselves the  fact that tho war is not over yet, and  that unlimited supplies are needed for  the Red Cross. Personal routine and  pleasure should be set aside as much  as possible, and the time utilized in  doing all we can for the men ��� who are  doing their best at the front a*-d also  those who are in training here and.  elsewhere throughout Canada. Would  it not be a little more like following  the teachings of Christ if the churches  would amalgamatQ their societies with  the Red Cross and work together instead of always putting choir practices and socials on the nights the  Rod Cross hold their meetings. At  the present time, everything should be  put aside and everyone's time given  to care of the wounded. We enn not  get the supplies quickly enough. This  work is woman's work and as such  it is our duty to give all the time  wo can t0 it. Wake up Kelowna! and  help our boys."  "good ship Sicamous," at close range.  She certainly presented an interesting  sight���the paint had long since disappeared from her lower hull, her sides  were coated with several inches of ice  and her paddle wheel looked like a  miniature ice-oostle. Tho upturned  ice around her sides showed a thickness of five inches and some of the  crew said that during the trip from  Kelowna they had passed through ice  over twelve inches in thickness. It is  interesting to note that the boat  makes a passage practically equal  to her own width. ftnd also that she  advances fully one-fourth of her own  length into the ice before any visibe  effect is produced upon the ice. Hence  it was safe to walk close enough up  to the bow of the boat to touch it,  which several people did.  After about one half hour, spent in  clearing away ice, oiling up, etc., the  Sicamous proceeded to Peachland, t..nd  about three hours Iater she was observed heroically fighting her way  baok to Kelowna.  Lectures Arranged on Fruit  Marketing and Pre-Cooiing  l%e fruit growers of British Columbia are at all timee awake to the fact  that the needs of the markets must  first be catered to if their bank accounts are to be increased. To cater  to the prairie and other markets as  they should be and to have satisfied  customers at the . end of the season  entails a great deal of study and experimenting on the part of each grower, but when these important matters  are brought to him' and presented in  an attractive manner, the growers will  no doubt glean all they possibly can  from the material supplied to them  and thus improve their pack for the  awaiting trade.  The department of agriculture has  mapped out an itin rary for a series  of lectures by market'n: experts who  have spent many years in gaining the  knowledge which they now posses.*.  The department htas secured the services of these men so that the growers  may benefit by their experiences and  thus bo able to turn out a much im  proved pack, therefore reaping increased returns at the end of the year.  A. H. Flach, chief Dominion fruit inspector for the prairie provinces, and  Edwin Smith, the Dominion government's pre-cooling expert of Grimsby,  Ont., are the two men whose .ier vices  have been secured by the department  and these men will travel throughout  the province lecturing at all the important fruit centres.  Mr. Flack before entering the services j' the federal1 department spent  some years in British Columbia and is  thoroughly conversant with conditions  both here and on the prairies, because his travels throughout -the three  western provinces have brought him in  close touch with the jobbers, retailers  and consumers and he will tell of the  requirements of these people and will  also deal with the standardization of  fruit packages, a most important feature of this ��� year'B marketing problems.  Mr. Smith was at one time engaged  in experimental work in British Columbia, but for the past few years has  devoted his attention to Ontario's requirements and has successfully fathomed many soft fruit problems. He  has during the past year written much  about his experiments and his nitides  have been much sought after by the  leading agricultural and horticultural  journals, while his work in connection  with the experiments in shipping soft  fruits long distances have stamped  him as an expert whose advice is always heeded by those who would bet  ter serve the markets.  Accompanying these officials in the  Similkameen and Okanagan will be  Mr. R. C. Abbott, coast markets commissioner, whose reports have been  so highly valued by the growers who  shipped their produce to the Vancouver and coast %arkets. Mr. Abbott  has u comprehensive knowledge nf the  requirements of the trade in the targe  consuming centres of the province,  where he has spent many years in  th.B work.  MessrB. Flack, Smith and Abbott  make up a trio which every grower  should hear. They will deal with the  requirements of the prairie and roust  markets as well as the package question, making on evening's lecture a  veritable short course in marketing.  Every fruit grower and every fruit  grower's son should make a point of  attending these lectures, a detailed it  inerary of which is given below:  The meeting at Summerland will bo  held at 8 p.m. on February 25th at  tho Mot's Club when the subjects to  be dealt with are: Pre-cooling soft  Fruits, by E, Smith; Coast Markets  for soft fruits, by R. C. Abbott and  Suitable Fruit Packages for Prairie  Markets by A. H. Flack.  Tho Rutland meeting will be held in  the old Bchool house at 3.30 p.m., on  February 28th. Subjects : Careful  Handling and Shipping B. C. Fruit,  by E. Smith; Coast Markets and tWr  value to the Growers, by U. C Abbott; Markets and ths Standard Fruit  Package, by A. H. Flack.  On February 28th at 8 p.m. n meet'  ing will be held in 4he school" house  on the K. L. 0. Bench, when Mr. R.C.  Abbott will speak on What the Coast  Markets Require;*Mr. E. Smith on the  Value of pre-cooling in tho Shipping  of Soft Fruits; and Mr. A. n. Flack  on Most Suitable Fruit Paokages for  Prairie Shipments.  At Okanagan Centro the meeting will  be held nt 8 p.iajf on February 29th.  The subjects to be dealt with are as  follows: Market Packages and their  Standardization,    by   A.   H.    Flack.  Death Saturday Last  of W. C. Blackwood  City Loses Good Citizen and  Keen Agricu'turist  One of Kelowna's most respected  citizens passed away last Saturday in  the person of Mr. William Caldwell  Blackwood, at thc age of 68 years. A  lingering illness extending over two  or three years, culminated some time  ago in acute diabetes, and lately further complications arose. No hope  had been entertained for a long time  of his recovery, and his death was  therefore but a happy release from continued suffering.  Mr. Blackwood was born in 1846 in  Peel County of Ontario, and waB for  many years one of the leading farm- *  ers in tihe neighborhood of Erin in  that province. Twelve years ago he  came to Kelowna and acquired considerable property in the city and district. He has always been a leading  ligure in all the agricultural movements of the Kelowna diBtriot, taking^  a great interest in his strain of purebred Jersey cattle, which he brought  with him from his Ontario farm.  The local agricultural association  has always found in him one of its  keenest supporters and in his removrtl  that society will sUffer a great loss.  He was alsq an enthusiastic member  of the Farmers' Institute and three or  four years ago served a term as alderman on the city council.  His parents were both natives of  Scotland, his father hailing from Glasgow and his mother from Paisley.  He was twice married, and he is  survived by a widow and a family of  of five sons aml-three dau.hta*s, most  of whom are married and settled in  the district. One son, Roy, whose  home is on the prairie came in last  week-end on a short visit.  The funsral took place Tuesday afternoon, and was largely att:nded, all  desiring to pay the last respects to a  fellow citizen and good neighbor, who  had always "been helcT ih "the highest  eBteem. The funeral was of ,,, Masonic  character, the deceased having been a  member of the local lodge, and a  large number of brethren were present.  - A short service was held at the  house in Bernard avenue by the Rev.  A. Dunn, and a long tone of vehicles  formed a cortege to the Kelowna  cemetery.  LECTURE ON FRUIT HACKING  Mr. Loveday, of the Provincial Fruit  Inspection staff is at present conducting fruit paoking "classes in town. A  separate class has been formed for  girls, and in view of the probable  shortage of packers this year it is  expected that this class will fully justify itself.  Mr. Loveday is a'so arranging for a  lecture to be given On Saturday :i  noon m the Board of Trade room on  the "Fruit Marks Act, and the Shipping of Fruit." The lecture will commence at 4 p.m., aod is open to all.  On the western front artillery actions have been inoessant from the  North Sea to the border of Switzerland, the French bombardments be'ng  very active in the Champagno country  where tho German trenches have been  wrecked around the Navarin- platan.  Tho French shells also demolished reservoirs of suffocating gas, and the  gas WaB driven by tho wind over the  enemy's lines. Northeast of Soissbns  tho Germans greatly increased their  fire, and an endeavor to cross the  Aisne and establish a foothold on the  southern bank was suspected. The increase of the French artillery along  the Aisne is thought to be intended to  check this German movement at a  point on the front where the enemy  are.nearer to the Capital than at any  other.   O   Latest reports speak of German Activity in the Ypres district where the  Hermans have made soveral infeVrfiy  attacks, following unusually heavy  bombardments of artillery. A big  battle is still going on, and it is said  that \while-most of the attacks iftil.H.  the Germans broke through tli0 BrftUh  lines between the Ypres Canal auJ t1>o  railroad for a distance of 600 yard*.

The Bogey of Stalemate  Winter hits imposed n deodlook upon  th.; main fronts gfl a seasonal necessity, says tin' British journal 'Now Sta es  nmn.' Is it more than thin,*? Ate the  fronts uhbroakabto? Germany would  like us to think that they are. Hhe  has mnde nearly all the oompjests  that hor military advisers can expect  Sjae would like us to despair of recovering them except by a negotiation, in  whioh we should have to sacrifice everything for their recovery. Her cue  is to represent the future of the ��'ar  as a bloody stalemate; every cxitru  day spent in it as a day wasted, every extra'man spent in it as a num  wasted; and thi' Allies as guilty before  civilization and before posterity for  subordinating the interests of both  to a Btruggle whioh cannot (on this  hypothesis) advance their own.  The German way of government is  good at utilizing various types, lake  instruments' in nn orchestra, each responds in turn to live baton of the  military conductors. Ono Certainly t' els  no surprise if an Austrian pacifist like  Dr. Alfred Fries, the well-known ex-  editor of 'Vrietlenswjirte' and winner of  the Nebel prize, comes out with a  strong plea for peace just when peace  would suit Germany and Austria. It  is all in the fitness of things that he  should write us he has to a Zurich  newspaper, arguing that the fronts  in Europe are impregnable; that the  war's extensions to Asia und Africa  are n confession ol both sides' chock  nearer home; that in the Europe of  today one groUp cannot .anjUish th'  other���-only Kurope will be vanquished,  and the longer vain efforts are made  to reach the unattainable tho more  will this li'urope be vanquished; and  th(lt 'the Entente Powers must free  themselves from the other watchword,  that German militarism must first be  destroyed before th- war is ended.'  What is more surprising is to find Mr.  11. (!. WVlls arguing th" same thesis  at tho same moment and in practically the same terms i��� the Columns of  a London morning paper. Mr. Walla  rs. of course, an absolutely independ  ent writer; h- used to bo particularly  emphatic about the necessity find possibility nf our winning ., derisive victory; and his conversion to the stalemate theory (Which he presents as a  revival ol the th -or\ nf ihe late M.  Blooh) shows thai it is gaining some  ground    niiii n; laymen on its merits.  Does  it   deserve  to do so?  Our impression is that it do*s not.  We sec no evident)*) tlint in trench warfare the defence is 'n in<*ible, or yven  that it has increased its advantages  when the appropriate means ol attack  are presented in sullicicnt force. Mr.  ZangwtH, who his also hastened to  endorse the stalemate view, says on  the authority of Bloch, that <n> man  in a trench can hold up B.H. As between riflemen und r certain conditions this may be true, but as a general stalemate it is almost meflirn_--  less. The length of front to be do-  fended is an essential, factor in the  problem; KM) rifhjmcn, for instance  ifia.V" be able to hold up (10/) on a  front ol 100 yards, but not on a  front of a mile. Moreover, tho armies now fighting on the mhin fronts  nre not composed of riflemen. They  aro not even composed of infantry,  they aro composed of infantry and  artillery; and for offensive purposes it  is especially the latter arm which  counts. (.ranted that the modern  infantryman, hold'n- a trench system  with machine gun, grenade, and rifle,  represents the ^strongest defence yot  invented; the mochrn Uirge-calibre high  explosive shell, travelling many miles  with a high trajectory from an invisi  ble gun, and tall.ttj accurately upon  infantry located by aircraft,, and powerless to hit back, is surely an even  more terrible offensive weapon. No  defending forces in history have been  normally subjected to such a fearful  ordeal as that of trench infantry under n modern bombardment. All the  achievement au9 resources of civilization are combin'd to compass their  'destruction.

For neatly twelve month? aKor ihe Aisno fighting began, the Central Powers preserved a great superiority in fjuns and  shells over their adversaries. They  used enough of this superiority (supplemented by the invention of poison-  gas) lo hold the Allies al bay on the  western front while they broke ill'  eastern. Their task in the west was  facilitated by tin' rawness of the enlarged British army, by ihe relative  inefficiency of its officers, above all "by  its bad stall' work; and conversely by  the lone; start which the German ofli-  cers had in professional theory and  practice, whereby they could keep well  ahead for some time with improvements in detail.

Provided only that one supremely necessary condition is forthcoming���-staff  efficiency���-the chan'os, dispassionately  weighed, would seem to be in favor of  our being able to destroy the 'deadlock' and remove th- war far from  its present  fronts.  The belief in stalemate is no doubt  derived u Lrood deal from the unun il\v.  ed impressions of past disappoint-  aunts, and especially from ih.) check  to the September offensive in Arto'is  and Champagne. But hu\'e these been  sufficiently distinguished and fairly  appraised? The Artois offensive, lor  which the British wore mainly responsible, was ' a failure. It failed  partly owing to difficulties of ground,  but mainly owing to blunders of direction and execution. The Chamfcagna  offensive was a success. It inflict.d  immense damage on the enemy. It is  true thai the French were stopped, but  for reasons"vhich may not always recur, One was tho burst of foul weather, which made the chalky surfaces  like Bo much grease. Another was the  lack of sufficient monster howitzers lo  destroy the str'tnr of 'fortins' which  formed die enemy's second line and  prevented tlic French from br.Mikin_'  his third line on a sufficiently wide  front, The supply of this ultra-heavy  artillery has (according to public  statemeiilsi been taken actively in  hand: and certain other technical pro  blenis, less freely discussed, are also,  we believe,  being mot. and solved.  Lookta? below the surface of the  lUlfi deadlocks, is (here yet any reu  son to despair of their ending? Tho  evidence points the other way. It U<vs  not justify us in endorsing ,the.

That is good staff work. The French  staff work in 1015 WaB probably e<pia!  to the f��ermnn. Our own certainly  was not; and both in France and in  (iullipoii it touched some very low  levels.

Social Conditions on the Farm  During the year 1915, the comiuis- ,  sion on conservation conducted aU ug- i  ricuitural survey on -100 farms in On*  taiio. 'Ihe survoy included 100 farms  in each of tho counties of Duudas,  Waterloo, Northumberland and Carle-  ton* Various phases of farm life were  investigated, and some interesting con  jitions presented. ���  Social conditions and other incentives to keep the young people on the  farms are to a great extent ne^ieotxl  as muy l>o seen from the following report of the survey:  Ten per cent of tho farmers visited  have had boya leave and go to tho  oity. Seven per cent have sons married who are farming. Nineteen per  cent stated that they were following  some form of book keeping, but only  one man was following a complete  method. Sixty-seven per cent take  agricultural' papers, seventeen per cent.  take story magazines, und seventy-  seven per cent take a daily paper.  In 53 per cent of the families visited.  there were young people over 14 years  of age while 31 per cent had a horse  and buggy or, an automobile for the  young people. Sixty-one per oent  of the farmers attended some kind of  community event or events* during the  past year, chiefly church socials and  picnics.  Here it may be stated that the rural  churches have a great opportunity to  develop the sooial sido of their activities, to reaoh more of the-young people in the country and interest them  in clean amusement, sports and recreations. Tho local fairs also are prominent nmong the community events  attended by tho farmer. In Dundas  and C'arleton countiea no organized  cluliH for games were met with, while  in Waterloo, 13 reported u football  club, and in Northumberland, six reported baseball clubs. Only ono of  the 400 farmers visited mentioned attending a literary society. Twenty-five  per oent of the homes had no musical  instruments of any kind; thirty-nine  per cent had pianos.���F.C.N.  The cost of producing milk obviously depends a great deal on the milking capacity of the cowb used. Comparison between eight of the beat and  eight of the P��orer cows in an Ontario dairy record? centre shows that  there was a difference in profit per  cow of $24.56, the eight high yielding  cows giving on average i u'otit of  $37.21 while tho poorer cowb returned a profit of $12.65 per head. 'Ihe  milk in each ca��e was valued-ut $1.1.5  per hundred pounds. The difference  no doubt would ha">e been very in.ich  reduced had tho feeding Iwen, the  same lor all dc unimaln. Those that  yielded the higher profit wore much  better fed thftn the others. The average cost of their food for the milking period being $-13,96 per head,  while tho food received by the less  profitable unimala was valued at  $89.63 per head. Calculating from the  standpoint of cost of the milk the  eight cows with the low yields made  only 32 cen's profit on a hundred  pounds of milk while the higher yielding cows made 54 cents profit from  an equal amount of milk.  This information, nnd a great deal  moro of equal value is contained in  the recently Issued nnnual report of  the Dairy and Cold .Storage Commissioner of the department of agriculture at Ottawa. This report in addition to the Dairy and Oold Average  Commissioner's general report, contains twelve appendixes which deal  with the work of tho assistant dairy  commission*!1, the extension of mar  kota, dairy and cold Storage divisions, etc., An appendix of unusual  interest gives statistics of th.�� export and import tr0dj in dairy produce, which show that the exports of  twitter increased from 1,951,585 pounds  in 1890' to 2,721,913 in 1915, while  during the same period the exports of  cheese increased from 194,264,187 lbs.,  to 137,601,661 lbs.  This report is available at the office of the Publications Branch of tkfl  department of agriculture at Ottawa.  DBF  D, FEED AND CARE  There are three things that must lie  considered to build up a herd of good  cows. First breed, then feed, then  care. No mutter how well bred A cow  may be, unless she is properly fed according to her requirements and individuality, she will not do as she  should. Then if she is well bred end  well fed and not properly cared for,  she is st'ill a failure. She must be  kept comfortable, quiet and Contented.  She needs good' light, good Air, plenty  of water and kind treatment. Mood  cows are not developed by harsh  treatment. If she oxpectB a whack by  a milk stool or fork handle when the  is approached is it any wonder she is  nervous and kicks? If on the contrary she never knows fear and as  you sit d0wn to milk her sho thinks  you are the best call she ever had,  you can figure that kind treatment  pays in dollars and cents, or from any  point of view.  THE RAVAGES OF LOCUSTS  FOREST PRESERVATION  Government statistics showing that  during last year no less a sum than  ten million dollars was lost by forest  fires make depressing reading. It appears almost past belief that twelve  thousand separate forest fires had to  be fought. Carelessness on the part  of settlers is the main cause set down  for the outbreaks. The fact is very  clearly realized that still more stringent laws are needed in nearly all of  the provinces if there is to be any  marked abatement of this deplorable  evil. It is a matter of no little oon-  solation to bo informed that railways,  however, owing to greater supervision  aro chargeable with quite a small percentage of the fires���in former yeArs  they vert the chief offsnden.  The ravages of,locusts have frequent  ly caused great damage to crops in  various parts of the world.? Many  methods have been tried to overcome  this plague. It has been reported  from Argentina that a process has  been invented for the asphyxiating of  locusts by gas, and it is hoped that  the young maize may be saved by the  methods'to be adopted. Not long ago  a huge swarm of locusts settled in  Uruguay, doing severe d.umigo thero,  especially in tho Department ol Colon-  ia. In South Africa, too, the locust  pest is said to have covered some 20,-  UiH) square miles, and vigorous steps  have recently been taken to deal with  the trouble. By means of poisrJn and  spray pumps no fewer than 3,000 of  the swarms have been destroyed. Fortunately, there havo been heavy rains  at the Cape during the danger periods  and the destruction lessened.  PARROT SENTINELS ON EIFFEL  -    TOWER  Birds have been enlisted to the  secret service of the air. ���,  They have become useful in Europe  as sentries to warn men of the approach of the enemy before the hostile  force is preemptible to the human eye.  The French have found that parrots  are acutely sensitive to the presence of  aircraft, and therefore they have stationed a number of these birds on the  top of the Eiffel Tower, in Paris, in  order to warn the sentries of the approach of German Taubos. Itafore the  craft is visible to the human oyo the  birds bristle with excitement and then  begin to screech. Their aouteness is  due not to their eyesight, as one  might suppose, but to an unusual  aouteness of hearing which enables  them thus (r�� give a valuable warning.  Lightning Rods Prevent Fire  In connection with 'the general Campaign for a reduction of the enormous  fire Iobb in canada the following" statement, from authorities, giving atftual  exjJerienceH with lighting and protection will be appreciated:  Mr. R. R. Cameron, .secretary-treasurer of the East Williams Mntjal Fire  Insurance Co., Ailsa Craig, Ont., under date of September 25, 1915, says:  "With this company, the principal  cause of fire losses is lightning. During the last six years, we have paid  fifty-four cmims for damage by lightning and only six claims for damage  by fire otherwise started. In our case  (insuring farm buildings) lightn'ng  rods Boom to be the practical remedy.'  Mr. W. (j. Willoughby, secretary-  treasurer of the Lambton Mutual Fire  Insurance Co., of Watford, Ont., lays:  "Lightning has been the prindplo  cause of lour losses, and if, the amount  paid on stock wore a'dded to tho  amount paid for losses- (,n buildings  by lightning, it would be more than  fifty per oent. We have not had a  rodded building burned for years, nnd  the damage to thonTTs very small ���  none in 1914, not in 1915. We made a  difference in rates in favor of rodded  buildings, nnd over half a'e rodded,".  Bert B. Buckley, -Ohio State Fire  Marshal, in his Inst August Bulletin  says: "During the three previous  months, lightning is credited with 68  fires, with p resulting Iobb of $9:1,165.  In every case the buildings struck were  not equipped with lightning rods. Not  a single fire was reported where the  building was rodded; in fact, it is very  seldom indeed, that such u case is  entered on tho records."  In the face of the foregoing evidence  and in view of tho smull cost of installing lightning rod equipment, it  would seem advisable for fnrmors to  equip thetr property with this prolec  tion, and alko to the advantage of insurance companies to jdve Q preference  in premium rates- to risks so protected.

The woman who would succeed' in commerce or  industry can confidently place her training in the  hands of the I.C.S.,as the following examples prove:  NELLIE M. NUTTER 168. W.

Appeal to Ladies of Kelowna  The reason thero has not been any  further not ico in regard to the "hold  all" or "housewife" which it is proposed to make for the overseas boys,  has befifi owing to the unavoidable  delay in getting the plans settled. Put  everything is ready now. The girls  of the Red Cross evening class havo  taken up llw idea (though this has  nothing to do with the Red Cross it-  sulfj and will canvass the city Friday  afternoon of this week and see all  the ladies who are on the list to ask  their help to make these ono hundred  anl twenty hold-alls for the -men ol  I lie Kelownu overseas force.  There are many, of course whn have  wives or mothers ()r sisters at homo  who can make them one, but there  are also others who huvo no one here  to do this  for them.  The canvassers will have with them  a pattern of thc kind of "house-wife"  needed, This will be tho same useful  pattern of those given tho hoys  of tho 48th Battalion when leaving  Kelowna- They aro very useful ftnd  Ihe Woolen can either make oll3 each  or two women make one and outfit  it between them. They will be asked  to have them all made and in by  Saturday, February 2fith as it is reported the boys may leave soon. We  hope all the women will help and let  the boys have a kindly remembrance  of Kelowna. Tho women of Vernon  gave all the Vernon men "hold-fllls"  before leaving for overseas,.  Mrs. R.

Ihe sudden thaw which has succeeded tho cold weather though welcome  enough has brought fresh troubles in  .its train, and, instead of being occupied thawing 0ut pipes under tho  house, wo ttre now mopping water out  of the basement and bridging lakes  und swamps in tho back yard. There  wo had to get our kick in somewhere!  * *  The ice on the lake conrinuus to  hamper tho boat' service, and although the thaw has come, the thickness of tho ice covering will make it  some time before things resume their  regular course. The situation as regards the getting in of freight to  Kelowna h,.s been relieved by the  breaking through of a channel for  the car barge, which was accomplished last week-end, and in cousequonco  cars can once more bo carried without the necessity of unloading at tho  Landing.. A way was also re-opened  as fur us Peachland, which wus a welcome achievement so fur as our neighbors down the lake were concerned.

A man oame walking down life's  street. Satan said to the little imp,  with a bitter faoe: "Go get him for  me."  Quickly the imp crossed the street,  silently and lightly hopped to the  man's shoulder. In his ear he whispered': "You are discouraged."  "No," said the man, "I am not discouraged."  "You are discouraged."  'Iho m&n replied this time: "I do not  think I am."  Louder ami more decidedly the little imp said: "I tell you, you are discouraged."  The man dropped his head and replied: "Well, I suppose I am.".  The imp, hopping back t0 Satan,  said proudly: "I've got him, he is  disoouraged."  Amjther man passed. Again, old Satan said: "Get him for" me."  The proud little demon of discouragement repeated his tactics. The first  time that he said, "You are discouraged," the limn replied emphatically:  "No!"  The second time the man replied: "I  toll you I am not discouraged."   .  Tho third time he said: "I am not  disdouraged. You lie."  'file man walked down the street,  his he���d up, going toward the light.  The imp of disoouragement returned  to his master crestfallen, "I couldn't  got him. Threu times 1 told him he  was disoouraged. Thc third time he  called me a liar and that discouraged ra��."  MAKING TRENCHUS A HUGE. TASK  A French soldier with a taste for  statistics has calculated thc amount  of soil that has been moved in the  work ol trench making. There aro  about five hundred miles of first lino  trenches stretching from the North Sea  to Switzerland. And thero are five  or six linen of trenches upon oaoh side.  A total of ton lines of trenches op the  two sides would give a length abort  5,000 miles, and this has involved a  task of excavating twice as great as  that of the Panama Canal. And it  has all been done by hand labor with  military shovels, and much of it has  been done under firo und by men who  have to Work while lying on their  chests.  They are quick t0 be off, t0 begin;  They're the boys who will get to the  goal first���  The boys who aro going to win.  You know as if someone had told you,  When the day ol the prizes draws near  The boys who will go to tho platform,  And Have the hU&'a and the cheer.  When the all precious hours you were  trifling  And said that to work was ft 8m>  They were deep    in their books     and  their studies,  Tho boys who are going to win.  When tho troops take their place    in  . tho battle,  To see who will win in tho fray,  'Mid the    roars of the guns and    the  rattle,  There are those who nre sure of the  day.  They stund in    their ranks firm   and  steady,  Unmoved by tho roar and the din,  They're the men who'll be hailed    as  the victors���  The; men wh0 are going to win.  And life to each one is ��� battle,  And life to oaoh one is a race,  And someone must;bear off the prizes  And    stand iit    tho i vicior's   proud  place. .    ���  Would   you share    in the prizes    and  honor?  0, now is the time-t0 begin,  So put down your    name,  'mid    the  claimants to fame-  The boys who are going to win.  -Frank Ellis.

THE GERMAN WAY  Tho brutal severity oi the German  military authorities is again exemplified in an apparently well authenticated story that has come to Canada  from the United States. A young  German had come over to Newt York  and established himself in business  some years ago. When the war broke  out he wrote his fiancee in Germany  c.hat he should return and join the  army, but ho would suffer great hiss  in a business way. She ropliod in a  short time advising him not to no; ���s  they both had brothers fighting nt  the front. As the war became more  desperate he wrote; again expressing a  still stronger inclination to return-  In reply came another letter from  the young ltt'lv again advising him not  to go. and stating that tho members  of both thoir families who wore in  the army, had been killed.  At tho bottom of tho letter was a  note from tho military authorities  stating that the writer 0f tho letter  had been executed that morning: for  treason in counseling a German not  to return to fight for his country.  Dr. C. M.Inglis, ��� Montreal pbyei-  oian who has just returned from England states that some German submarine orews, rather than submit to  capture by the British, committed suicide. Dr. Inglis ahid the British had  captured mora* than seventeen of Germany's largest submarines within the  last three months bringing tho total  submarines captured up to 69.

Tho ioe..*os in anything but good  condition and after a few minutes of  play was so badly out up and heavy  that combination play was almost  impossible because of their inability  to pass the puck along the ice. This  no doubt worked a groat hardship on  the Kelowna septotte a* they had  de|>ended to n great extent on their  combination work to pull them  through and had spont most of their  praotiop ol lato in working out a system of combination work, which, had  tho ico been in good condition we believe would have made a great difference in the looks of the score.  However, thiro is "no use crying  over spilt milk," the boys lost and  Vernon must be credited with having  played a strong game, and having  won out in a strenuous contest.  Dr. G. L. Campbell, who accompanied the local boys and intended  to take part in the game, for  some reason did not appear on the  line up but acted as referee.  Details of the play are lacking and  until the boys return tomorrow it  will not be known just what happened  to otlr boys on whom we depended for  a crushing defeat of our northern  neighbor.  The boys are go:ng on to Armstrong today, where if the ice will  permit they will cross sticks with the  town team there tonight.  ��lnl��lMl��l��l��l��l��l��lMli.lnlnl��l��l��IBTa  m a  B CRIBBAGE B  a a  [���lMl��l��l��l��lMl��lal��l��lalkl��l��l��l��l��l��l��liiliri.

The contests So fat  ���have been comparatively even and  while some appear tn have a comfortable lead those who nre behind have  only played a fow games and have  still a good chance to pull up.

That Canadian Indians hav�� survived the hardship caused by the adverse effect of the war on the fur  trade, and are facing difficulties this  winter with confidence, is a statement  which appears in the annual report of  tho Indian department, recently issued.  In agricultural and other pursuits  their earnings present a moat creditable showing.  I Ihe native population has remained  ; practically stable and health condi-  i lions have on the whole been good.  Ihe total value of agricultural products of Indian industry in 1910 was  81,813,610, and of real and personal  property, ��60,489,910,, of which M&r  765,011 is in lund. The total income  of the Indians is i6,927,594, a marked  decrease having taken place in the  amount enrned by hunting as a result of the. decline in fur prices.  Ihe Canadian Indians have during  the year given many instances of their  loyalty and their contributions to tho  date reported to patriotio funds have  totalled 810,016.  I anada's manner of administering  Indian affairs has proved a model to  the United States, a special commissioner, Mr. K. II. Abbott, secretary of  the board of Indian commissioners for  the United States," having recommended u number of fei tyres of Canadian  Indian law and administration to th<:  consideration of the I'nited States  authorities after making' a tour of  Indian agenoies in Canaan, Mr. Abbott is enthusiastic over the simplicity  and adoquaoy of Canadian regulations  for tho native races. His only point  of rritii'iyn. was regarding the difficulties surrounding the i n'ranchise-  men.   of  the   Indian   'n  Caii'da.  (TOP Villi  KICKTN*!
