 M  VOL. IX.   NO. 40.  ftanrfo  **^kw  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY. AUGUST 23, 1917.-4 PAGES  Victoria. B.C.  $1.50 Per Annum  Bank Protests  Against Aldermen's  Council However Declines to  Take Hint���No Tenders  Yet For Wood  The payment of a remuneration  or indemnity to the city aldermen  for their services was again the subject of consideration at Monday  morning's regular meeting of the  council. The matter arose owing  to a letter from the manager of the  Bank of Montreal advising that he  had noticed in the press that an  item of $1,000 was included in  the published estimates of expenditure for the year, and requested  that if it was the intention of the  council to divert funds for that  purpose he be notified as such a  payment would alter the conditions  under which the standing credit of  $40,000 for current expenses was  established, and no further advances could be made until the matter had again been submitted to  the general manager.  In the discussion which followed  the reading of this letter it was recalled that the final arrangements  for this credit were made by the  Finance committee with the then  acting manager, Mr. E. J. Cochrane  who clearly understood that the  council would be paid their indemnity f : the current year, and advanced $10,000 on such understanding. The cleric was instructed  to bring this fact to the attention  of the manager of the bank.  A letter was read from Mr. W.  Harvev claiming discount on his  monthly rates on the ground that  hia cheque was placed in the post  office between eight and nine  o'clock on the evening of the 15th  although it had been stamped with  the postmark of the 16th. The  discount amounting to $19150 was  allowed.  Messrs. Burne & Weddell wrote  in reference to the city's liability to  prevent electric light wires and  trees interfering with the Okanagan Telephone Co.'a wire*. The  clerk was instructed to advise the  telephone company that where the  light wires had been placed subsequent to the installation of the  telephone wires the city would  make any necessary changes when  called upon to do so by the In  spector of Electrical Energy, but  where the telephone line was the  later installation the city would expect the Telephone Company to  make the changes. It was also  decided to advise the company  that the city was looking after the  pruning ot treea growing .in the  public street*.  Messrs. H. T. Boyd, L. Hayes  and R. D. Sullivan waited on the  council to instal a hydrant at the  intersection of Long street and  Cadder avenue, and also to place  a street light at the intersection of  Cadder avenue and Abbott street.  It was decided to accede to the  first request for the fire hydrant  and to obtain estimates for the  cost of extending the lighting system to the foot of Cadder avenue.  The clerk reported that no tenders had been received for the supply of cordwood for the power  house.  Aid. Harvey reported that as  soon as he could procure the services of a qualified engineer it was  his intention to have the steam roller put to work on Pendozi street.  By-laws for the procuring of a  further temporary account, and  for the fixing of the tax rate were  also read.  Rutland News  (From sar owa antrtstnaaaaat).  The Rev. and Mrs. Griffiths left  Monday morning for a visit to  Ladysmith. ,  Ewart Hardie and " Lish " Monford went to Vancouver Friday.  The next meeting of the Girls,  Enterprize Club will be at Mrs.  Fords house.  Earl Hardie, Milton Burt, and  L. Wanless went up the mountain  Saturday last and came back with  a nice string of fish.  Miss Joy Flemming had twelve  little members of her primary  Sunday School class up to her  home last Tuesday, and gave them  a good time.  A runaway automible is not a  common sight in Rutland but we  understand that one did take a  notion a few days ago to continue  its journey ofter the owner had got  out. It landed in the ditch however,  and had to be assisted out by a  team.  Some complaint is being made  about the number of cattle roaming at large in the Rutland district.  It is particularly noticeable this  year as feed being scarce along the  roads the fences are being badly  broken by the hungry animals.  Rutland is about the only district  now without a pound law.  Mr M. G. Clever of Milo, Iowa,  came in this morning on a visit to  his brother at Rutland. Mr. Clever  with his family came as far as the  prairies by automobile, a journey of  seven or eight days, during which  time they camped on the road, and  ignored the shelter of the hotels.  Miss Annie Gay gave a verv  pleasant social evening to the girla  of her class yesterday evening.  Earlier in the evening there were  games and music on the lawn followed by a supper. Excepting  minor accidents like the loss of a  heel, a dislocated knee, sprained  ankles, Sec, a pleasant time was  had. We understand that next time  Miss Gay's class meets it is the  intention to have an ambulance  on hand. They certainly do get  ' 8ay' (ouch!)  Miss Rlanch Ford and her Sunday school class went out Thursday  to Mission Bridge for a picnic.  They had a most enjoyable time  visiting the head gate and playing  various games, including baseball  It was while they were enjoying a  dip in the cooling waters of the  creek that some -hungry young  man, alaat visited the lunch baskets,  and as a result the girls had to be  put on war rations.  Big Liberal Convention at Winnipeg  This convention it still the talk of  the  Dominion.   The picture shows  Hon. A. L. Sifton   (left), Premier of Alberta and Hon. J. C. Brewster,  Premier of British Columbia, in consultation.  Big Price Paid For Holstein  Canadian breeders from Alberta  have closed a deal with Oliver  Cabana, jr., for the purchase of  Albiha Josie King, a son of Albina  Josie, for $25,000. They also took  two yearling daughters of Ray  Apple Horydyke for $5,000 each.  The three animala will form the  nucleus of a Holstein herd in the  northwest.  o   The Sunday boat service will be  commenced on Sunday for the first  time thia summer. The regular  passenger schedule will bs run.  PERRY-BARR  The^marriage of Mr. William  Warren Perry, son of Lieut.-Col.  and Mrs. John Perry, of Kelowna,  and Miss Lillian Olive Barr, daughter of the late Lieut.-Col. James  Barr and Mrs. Barr, was solemnized at the bride's home in Montreal  on July 24th. The ceremony was  performed by the Rev. W. D. Turner. The bride, who was given  away by her brother-in-law, Mr. J.  McFaul, wore a white crepe-de-  chene gown with trimmings of  Georgette crepe. She carried rosea  and sweet peas, and was attended  by two flower girla���her nieces,  Misses Eileen McFaul and Shirley  Hamilton, who carried baskets of  sweet peaa. The Wedding March  was played by Misa Evelyn Hamilton, a niece of the bride. Mr. and  Mrs. Perry will reside on Glenn  avenue on their return from the  coaat.  Mean Swindle Tried.  on Kelowna Girl  Fake Telegram Dodge However Fails to Work  Miss Lily Patterson, who is at  present staying with her uncle Mr.  J. T. Bell, of Indian Head, recently  had a somewhat interesting experience, which incidentally reveals  about as' mean a scheme for getting monej as we have ever heard  of.  One afternoon, as she was sitting  in the house, a man came to the  door to deliver a telegram addressed to Miss Patterson, and purporting to have come from Kelowna.  The message was brief but sufficiently distressing: " Accident.  Come at once. Mrs. Patterson,  Kelowna," There was a charge to  be collected of $3.50.  Though feeling that there was  something queer about the telegram  Miss Patterson would have paid  the charge at ence but for the fact  that ahe could not make the  change. The man, however, obligingly agreed to call later when her  uncle had returned.  In the meantime suspicions of  the genuineness of the telegram  had increased and it was agreed  to pay a visit to the C.P.R. office  to make inquiries. The clerk there  fcund that no such message had  come through that office, and that  moreover, the message was written  out in such a way as to stamp it as  a fake, and it was arranged to lay  a trap for the ingenious rascal.  That evening a phone message  came to the house that the bogus  messenger was anxious to collect  the money due on the wire. Mr,  Bell answered the phone and invited him to come up at once and  get the money. In the meantime  a detective in plain clothea had  arrived at the house and witnessed  the handing over of the money to  the unsuspecting swindler. He  waa thus caught red-handed and  as a result will have twelve months  in jail to think up a better way of  making a living.  David Reith is Latest  Victim of the War  Kelowna Family Had Three  Members in Trenches  Mrs. Reith, of Woodlawn, is this  week mourning the loss of her eldest boy David, news of whose  death at the front was intimated  a few days ago. The young man  who was barely twenty-one years  of age, left for the old country  shortly before the war broke out,  and when the first call came for  volunteers for Kitchener's army he  eiilistcd with the Gordon Highlanders. For some time he was  engaged as drill sergeant in Kent,  but later was drafted over co France  with his regiment. He thus had a  long experience of the hardest  fighting before he finally gave up  his life in the cause. He waa a fine  type of soldier, and a typical specimen of the unbeatable Highlander.  While in Kelowna he was employed for some time at the Bankhead  Ranch.  The Reith family has contributed heavily to the war, the father  and two sons having enlisted from  the one household. Mr. Reith, snr.  and a younger son George both  went overseas with the 172nd and  have both seen service at the front.  The former is now invalided over  to England while the latter is still  at the front. The family came to  Kelowna about aix vears ago from  Aberdeenshire.  No Chance of  Starving England Out  Optimistic Speeph by Premier  Lloyd George  Premier Lloyd George, speaking  in the House of Commons, said  that this lime last year the wheat  in the old country amounted to  51,840,000 bushels and that now  it is 68,000,000 bushels. The stock  of oats and barley, he declared also  was higher.  Mr. Lloyd George said the  acreage under cultivation showed  an increase of a 1,000,000 acres.  If the harvest weather were good,  the condition of food supplies  would be. very satisfactory. The  Premier added that there has been  an increase in the sugar reserve.  "The government has come to  the conclusion," the Premier said,  that with reasonable economy  there is no chance of starving England out."  The admiralty plans for dealing  with submarines have been increasingly successful.  The British Premier said that in  the single month of April 560,000  gross tons of shipping were lost  through Tuetonic submarines. In  July the total tonnage lost went  down to 320,000 gross tons. This  month there was a substantial improvement over that of July.  The losses since the commencement of Germany's unrestricted  submarine warfare were under  250,000 tons net a  month.  The Premier said : "Germany  now is hardly able to hold her  own���not even that."  With the co-operation of  America, the Premier said, their  would be sufficient tonnage for all  of 1918 and if necessary, 1919.  Although tonnage has decreased  during the last year, he added more  goods have been carried from overseas.  German figures on losses of  Allied shipping by submarine attacks are exaggerated by 40 per  cent., according to Allied navies  admirals at their recent conference  in Paris.  Mrs. Knox and children left  Monday for Montreal. Their trip  east will probably be for several  months. Dr. Knox accompanied  them as far aa Vernon, returning  the following day.  Now that the shooting season is  approaching it might perhaps be  aa well to remind those who do go  forth with a shot gun that no permission has been given to shoot  pheasanta in this district. These  birds have certainly increased  much of late years and ��� some day  may afford good sport, but to allow  them to be shot at present would  simply mean their extermination.  Stop Trading in Futures  Trading in wheat for future delivery will cease on all' grain exchanges in Canada on August 31,  it has been ordered by the Board  of Grain Supervisors for Canada.  Miss Jeanie Ritchie is spending  a holiday at the coast this week  Serg. Finch returned to Kamloops Monday.  Di. Gaddes and his daughter  Bessie left yefterday for San Diego.  They will be absent for sometime.  Word haa been received from  Mr. W. E. Adams that his youngest  brother, Coleman, has been killed  at the front.  Plugging Report Sheds No  New Light  The report of the commission  appointed to enquire into the  famous Macdonald plugging Scandal at the Vancouver by-election  was submitted to the House last  Friday.Apparently nothing new has  been unearthed, and the position  is much the same as before.  It sets forth that there was an  elaborate scheme of personation at  the famous February by-election,  that it was designed on behalf of  M. A. Macdonald, but that there is  no evidence to show who the people were who financed the men  who carried out the scheme in  which J. T. Scott, H. H. Pearce,  Peter Annance and Monty White  are declared to be implicated. Except for the Scott confession, rejected as testimony against anybody  but Scott himself, there waa no  evidence adduced, says the commissioners, showing that the Liber  al candidate had any knowledge  of or connection with the illegal  practices.  Big Eastern Munition  Plant Blows Up  Shakes Surrounding Country  Like Earthquake  A series of terrific explosions  occurred lest week-end at the big  powder plant of Curtis & Harvey  Co., Ltd., at Dragon, between Montreal and Ottawa resulting in a  heavy loss of life. The effect of  the explosions was felt over six  miles away, where manv windows  were broken, people fearing an  earthquake had taken place.  There are over 600 men on the  payroll of the plant, though only  about. 150 were at work when the  disaster occurred. Forty houses  at Dragon ��� are reported to have  been destroyed.  . It is stated that when the first  explosion occurred most of the  employees fled for cover and as  explosions continued making the  vicinity one of great danger the  majority have not returned. Passengers on a C.P.R. train which  passed the scene placed the death  roll at 20, but definite figures are  unobtainable.  The cause of the first explosion  was machinery overheating in the  nitric acid room which took file,  the flames rapidly spreading to  other buildings, explosions occurring about every five minutes.  German Ships Damaged  In Engagement  An engagement between British  and German scouting ships in  which one German destroyer and  several mine sweepers were damaged severely was reported by the  admiralty Saturday. ,  The biggest type of British vessels engaged in scout work took  part in the fight, when they came  upon the enemy. The British  opened fire on the German destroyer, damaging her, but she  escaped as did the mine sweepers  the destroyer was convoying, Several of the latter were damaged.  Cerman submarines were also  engaged in the fight, the admiralty  statement said. The -fight took  place Thursday morning. The admiralty added : " During the scouting opeiations we were unable to  follow the destroyer and mine  sweepers owing to a mine field.  The engagement took place in the  German bight. During the engagement submarines attacked our  light forces also. After this second  action we were undamaged.  The Germans for some time past  have been sending mine sweepers  into the North Sea from Heligoland, under escort of destroyers.  They have been sighted several  times by British patrol war vessels,  but this is the first clash reported.  This diligence of the Germans in  their mine-sweeping work has given  rise to speculation in England as  to whether the enemy intends to  come out again."  Visiting American  Dies in Hospital  Contracts Typhoid on Trip  From California  Frank Gilley, an American from  California, who had come up for  the season as a box maker for the  fruit season, died in hospital last  Friday. The young fellow, who  was only 33 years of age, arrived  in Kelowna two weeks ago. The  day after he arrived he complained  of feeling ill, indeed, he said he  had been more or less unwell  during the whole of the journey  north. Upon consulting a doctor  it was discovered that he was suffering from typhoid, and was immediately despatched to the local  hospital.  In spite of the utmost care, however, he got gradually worse and  expired Friday last.  Messrs. Stirling & Pitcairn, for  whom Gilley waa to have worked,  as on previous occasions, at once  communicated with his relatives  and on their behalf took charge of  airangements for shipping the remains back to Gilley'8 native place  at Rogersville, Tennessee, which  waa done Monday.  Gilley had the reputation of  being one of the most expert box-  makers in the trade.  Mr. Locke of Fumerton fit Co.  left yesterday for the coast, where  he will spend a short holiday.  Miss Alice and Flora Perry were  passengers to Vancouver yesterday.  There haa been an unusual exodus of Kelowna people to Vanr.ou  ver on during the last few days,  taking advantage of the cheap  excursion rates which prevail at  exhibition time. On Friday last  between thirty and forty were issued, and since then each day has  seen a little group of excursionists  [leaving on the boat.  Must Pay Double Taxes  Local tax-payers have been con-  sierably shocked to receive notices  calling for the payment of their  usual taxes all over again. This ia  the result of the "Surtax Act,"  which exactly doubles the regular  taxes. It was one of the many devices of the present government  for increasing the provincial revenue.  The police and military in Ireland are seizing all rifles and arms  from the unauthorized volunteer  corps in Ireland both in the north  and south. Raids have been made  and arms seized in Belfast, Cork,  Armagh, Dublin ond many other  places.  Twenty-two thousand acres of  land in the Ochoco Valley, central  Oregon, will be irrigated, work  starting on the project within the  next twenty davs. $900,000's worth  of bonds have been underwritten  to finance the project, and a contract for the construction of a $300,-  000 dam and the first section of  the main canal was signed this  week with Twohy Bros. -������  ^  PAGE TWO  KELOWNA  RECOaB  Thursday, August 23rd, 1917  s s s s.ss s s> s ������ �������������t-i nisi" ���  ���*    PROFESSIONAL AND    **  ��       BUSINESS CARDS      **  BURNE & WEDDELL  Barrister,  Solicitors and  Notaries Public,  B.

The Japanese Store  Phone 112  B.C. Prohibition Act  Becomes Law  The suspense which has been  hanging over the province for  some months regarding the fate of  Prohibition was ended on Friday  laat when the B.C. Prohibition Act  Commencement Act" received the  final assent of the Lieutenant-Governor, after having been passed by  the legislature. The original bill  was voted upon by the electors of  the province last September and  approved by a large majority. The  story of the subsequent taking of  the soldiers' overseas vote, and the  extraordinary attempt of the liquor  interests to manipulate that vote,  an attempt which must have cost  hundreds of thousands of dollars,  and which very nearly succeeded,  is well known.  The "Commencement Act"  which lias just been passed consisted of certain amendments rendered necessary by the delay, and  which fixes the date for the coming  into force of Prohibition at October 1st.  Thus on October I st every bar,  brewery and distillery in this province will close its doors so far as  the sale of liquor within the province is concerned. Breweries and  distilleries may ship to points outside the province, if they can find  a market; consumers may import,  unless the impending amendments  to the Doherty Act in the Dominion House prevent importation into  a dry province, as seems likely-  The province, however, under Sections 91 and 92 of the B. N. A. Act  has no power to interfere with in-  terprovincial trade.  The vending of liquor will be  carried on by Government officers,  who will have no interest in its  sale. They may aell under the following heads: For mechanical or  scientific purposes, ten gallons,  To druggists, five gallons. To physicians, two quarts. To dentists,  one pint. To veterinary surgeons,  one gallon, To superintendents of  hospitals for hospital use, to ministers of the gospel for sacramental  purposes, and to any one for medicinal purposes. All these are safeguarded by limitations as to doctors' prescriptions, etc.  The administration of the Act  will fall to the provincial police,  and the records o( sales are to be  constantly open for police inspection, and monthly returns are to be  made to the department. No  liquor may be consumed on the  premises; it must be sold for cash  and only between the hours of 7  a.m. to 6 p.m., closing at 5 o'clock  Saturday night. Clubs are prohibited from carrying liquor or selling it.  There are wide powers of search,  and the onus of proof as to sales,  prescriptions, etc., is on the accused. The percentage of alcohol in  beverages sold under the prohibitions of this act is two per cent,  proof. It does not apply to vinegar  cider, or denatured alcohol,  ���M PBEPARED-      Kelowna Troop  Troop First |   Sell Last  Edited by Pioneer. Aug. 21st, 1917  We reprint the following article  from last month's Headqunrter's  Gazette, written by a former Scout  Master and now Lieutenant on  active service :-  The "Awkward" Years  Sometimes at the end of a long  march, or at the close of a busy  day, as I lie awake in dug-out, barn  or billet, there comes before my  mind's eye the vision of a whole  army of boys, the scouts whom I  left behind in England. I see their  faces as plainly aa though they  were really with me, and the remarkable fact about these faces is  that they are all lit up with a smile.  My memory of these happy,  healthy youngsters is quickened by  a bundle of letters which lies in  one of the capacious pockets of my  war-stained tunic, and which seem  to me to be a sort of passport to  the heartsof men.  It is nt new thing that the smile  of a Scout is a smile which "won't  wash off." It is part of his inherit-  as a scout, and when fust he puts  on the scout kit he puts the smile  on with it. But it is always  known thing and one to be deplored, that there so often comes a day  when the smile wanes, and when  the sunshine of the morning seems  to have passed away. There comes  a day - generally it arrives during  what are known as the awkward  years - when the gay laughter of  boyhood seems to grow dimmer or  to change into something which is  almost a jeer.  These so-called "awkward"  years form an epoch in the bn> s  life, and to my mind seem lr be  be the most important years of all.  1 recall the words ol Walt Whitman  when he likens a boy's life that of  an "imn ortal young sailor, vovag.  ing, voyaging, voyaging." The  early years of a boy's life are an  adventure. His craft is steered  through the quite sunny waters of  childhood. But there comes a day  to most boys when they feel that  they have lost the rudder and that  they are adrift.  I do not think we always realize  what this "rudderless" sensation  means to a boy. It comes upon  him all at once. A feeling of approaching manhood is plunged  upon him, and he welcomes its advent bv smoking cheap cigarettes,  walking out with girls and buying  colored socks. He leaves school;  he (as often as not) gives up scouting ; he goes blindly into the world  to earn his living. He n.eets- well,  we all know too well what emissaries of Hell still prowl abont in  cities and towns. He becomes too old, too  proud, to go to hit Scoutmaater and ask  for advice. As a scout he had little to  fear. Life wat too buty. When he went  to bed, tired out by healthy exercise, the  imp who sat at the end of hit bed beckoned to him in vain, hia thoughts were in  the open fields among the heather, the  gorte, and the young rabbitt. Hit detirea  centered on the next proficiency badge,  Emerson says that "we are never without  a pilot.*' Nor are we. But there are times  when we are too big, too proud to seek a  pilot. We prefer to drift on by ourselvet  even though our coune be a down one.  1 have tpoken of that day when to  many boyt lota their smile, and with it the  grace and charm of boyhood. There are  tome, of eourte, who never lote that smile  or that charm, whose laughter it never  turned to scoffing at women, religion,  or to laughing down the ladder by which  they themtelvet have ascended. Knowledge of certain facta, torrow, disappointment, all tend to drown the laughter of  childhood. It is through these years of  doubt and grotesque awkwardness that  tcouting can do to much for a boy.  (To be concluded next   week.)  STUDY ONE'S OWN FARM  L   -  Mis Differ and General Advloa la Not  Inough ��  Tha soil Is the farmer's capital���  Ms workshop. Upon It Is founded tha  whore business of farming, and upon  Us fertility will depend In large nieat-  ure the success of the farmer's operation*!.

The plant derives certain substances  neoeetary to Its development trom the  soil; the most Important of these are  nitrogen, phosphoric acid and potash.  The farmer should know whether his  soil contains tlieto in sufficient quantities to meet the requirements of a  maximum' crop providing food cultivation It given, or It he Is not getting  satisfactory yields, he should And the  cause. No two farms have been  treated and cropped in past years In  Sxaotly tha name way, which means  bat even adjoining farms may be entirely different so far as soil requirements are concerned. To bring It up  to a state of profitable productiveness  one farm may need a rotation different from the other or a different fertilising treatment.  Bulletins, books, experts and governments help the farmerB In many ways,  but they cannot be expected to furnish every detail In a manner to lit  his every need. Tbe farmer himself  should learn what his crops require,  learn what his soil contains, learn  yt\tt 1; lacking In his soil, learn how  to supply the deficiencies, and then  he may safely lock for Increased yields  and greater nroflu It involves study,  but the farmer must work out many  of his own problem,* on Ills own farm  under his own co.idlvlons, by trial, by  test, and by experiment.  PRODUCE NEW MAIZE  Indian Showing Ability to Raise Grain  on Arid Lands  The Indians have .iven the white  man a new kind of inalze, whioh will  go another long stfp toward producing food. The great arid desserts of  the west havo been considered negligible so far as ureas fit for the production of food cropB without expensive Irrigation.  Tt�� I'uubln Indians ot Colorado  have learned to raise a peculiar kind  of maize which will resist drouth.  This new kind of maize Is planted by  the Indians as deep as 18 Inches iu  the ground. It sends forth a single  pool which penetrates deeply Into the  soil, finally reaching low enough levels  to bring moisture to the plant.  By reason of peculiar formation tills  Iplant is able to pusli Its way up  through 18 Inches of hard, dry desert  |soil and find the light. Because of  [the absolute aridity no weeds or other  'vegetation seek to crowd out the plant  land therefore It bears quite freely.  By puttiug all the energy into a single  !root, the Pueblo Indian maize is enabled to reach moisture and give life  to the plant on tbe surface.

Use has been made of the so-  called "Kansas" formula, which  has proved of great value in the  western States and Canada. This  consists of 20 lbs. of bran. I lb. of  Paris Green, J gal, of cheap grade  molasses, 3 lemons and enough  water to moisten thoroughly without making it soggj.  This mixture is best made in the  following manner: Mix the dry  bran and Paris Green together in  a tight box, chop up the fruit finely  and mix with the syrup and water,  then combine the two.  Thia quantity of mixture ahould  be scattered broadcast over the  affected area and should be sufficient to treat from 4 to 5 acres. It  is better To apply thia mixture in  the early morning before the grasshoppers start feeding. If this procedure is followed two or three  times during the course of the summer the loss from these insects will  be decidedly lessened.  The cost of material for each application does not exceed 30c per  acre and it does not require more  than a quarter of an hour to scatter  the application over an acre. This  low cost and the small amount of  labor required will doubtless ap  peal to growers in this locality.  ���nail  Can   Live  Indefinitely  Without  Inhaling Air  It Is a fact that while tlie common  ���nail has lungs, heart, aud a general  circulation, being In every respect an  ilr-breathlng creature, it is. nevertheless, able to live Indefinitely without  Inhaling the least bit of air. Experl-  mtnts have clearly demonstrated that  any or all of the usual life conditions  may be removed In the case of the  snail without terminating its exist-  ence or indeed impairing its functions.  Ths snail retreats into Its shell on the  approach of frosty weather, and causes  tne opening or mouth of-its shell to  be hermetically sealed by a secretion  of silky texture absolutely Impervious  to air and water. In this condition,  therefore, It Is plain that tlie little  oreature Is deprived of three of tlie  lour elements of life air, water and  nourishment.  Fire Caused By Snow  A snowstorm has been known be  tore now to start a fire. A farmer  living In a rural part of Belgium placed a quantity ot quicklime near a  shed on his farm, and left It there all  night. In tbe. courae of the night  snow fell on to the lime, and the heat  thut developed became so great that  It set the thed on fire, completely destroying It and Its contents.  How to Work Corn Land  Cultivating corn level, not ridging  or hilling soil round the stalks, saves  moisture and adds to the yield, induing exposed a greater surface from  which soil moisture can evaporate,  and at the same time com roots are  out oft by the cultivator.

KILLING WILD OATS  Suecettful Method af Veteran Farmer  I* Detorlbed  Th* weed problem It on* of th*  paost serious confronting Canadian  farmers. Bom* weeds are trouble-  some la every province, while other*  cause most loss where grain farming  Is exclusively practised. Wild oat*  are a terrible pest In the Prairie Provinces and must be dealt with earnestly In order to keep them under oontrol. Various methods are advocated  for their eradication, but one of the  very beat Is the fallow and fall rye  method practised and recommended  by one of the oldest and most successful farmer* of the Northwest.  The infested field should be ploughed deeply (seven or eight Inches If  poaaible), as soon a* spring seeding  Is over, and each day's ploughing harrowed a* ploughed. As each crop of  cat* appears It should be cultivated or  disked up to the 10th or 12th ot August when the field should be given a  filial preparation and seeded about  Aug- lEth, at tha rate ot one and one-  quarter bushel* of fall rye and pack-  ad or harrowed after seeding. The  pat* that germinate with the rye will  be winter-killed, and those coming up  In the tprlng will not ripen before the  rr* 1* ready to harvest. The better  the soil 1* cultivated and prepared to  reoelve the rye orop the greater will  b�� th* number of oats germinated and  winterkilled. If necessary this treat-  mint oan. be repeated. Fall rye Is a  ���or* crop, the grain brings a good  tripe, and it Is the one crop which  will ripen ahead of the wild oats.  BRITISH CHURCH UNION  Puallo    Worship    In    Common,    wat  Baptist Divine's Idea  A (trlklng suggestion of what might  b* a "Variety Church" was made hy  the Rev. W. Y. Fullerton, ot London,  as President, to the annual assembly  Of the Baptist Union at Bloomsbury  Central Church.   "My ideal for public  I'orehlp In a village," said the pres!  ���nt, "would be that all should galhei  tin the ancient sanctuary which Is the  heritage of all: that there should be  ���n Anglican service In the morning, a  Methodist service In the afternoon, and  a Baptist or Congregational service In  th* evening. If only It could be  achieved, think what an Influence it  would have on tbe village and on the  worship. In a town my Ideal would  be that on the morning of the Lord's  Day we should go to our denominational sanctuary, and In the evening  th* people of all the churches should  join a* neighbors In prayers and  praise In the nearest church, bo that  it would be no longer possible for two  Christian families to live next door  to each other and never worship to  gether."

Chinese "Sardines"  Some of the fancy-named, high-  priced "sardines" that are now being sold are really nothing other  than immature salmon taken  illegally by Chinese in the British  Columbia coast waters, according  to the result of investigation* made  by aome of the fishing authorities  at Co ivichath.  These fish experts claim to have  discovered a full-fledged "sardine"  factory on the Cowichan coaat.  The fact that the Chineae are  putting out "sardines" in this way  is given as one of the reasons for  the continually increasing scarcity  of salmon and cod in the inland  waters around Vancouver Island.  ���Victoria Colonial.
