KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, JUNE 20, 1918.���4 PACESs  11.50 Per Annum  Estates For Current Year  Tax Rate Will Be Slightly Higher Than Last Year  At the adjourned meeting of the  council the year's estimates were  submitted by the chairman of the  different standing committees. The  total estimated expenditure of the  city for the current year is $ 103,-  394.47, or with a sum of $2,898.21  allowed for possible rebates on  taxes promptly paid, $106,292.68.  The total estimated revenue is  $48,411.87, leaving $57,880.81 to  be raised by taxation. This on the  present assessment will necessitate  a tax rate of 33.8 mills. This is a  slight increase over last year when  the rate was placed at 32 mills.  The various departments of citj  work are given below in tabuler  form  In explanation of the increase in  the debenture levy, Mayor Sutherland stated that although the actual  needs for debenture purposes were  the same, a rearrangement of the  allowance for rebates had caused  an apparent increase over last vear.  This had been done in order that  each department should bear its  own proportion of the rebate allowance.  Mayor Suthetland also commented upon the increase in the appropriation for fire protection. This  was due to-the fact that an item of  $2,000 for the new chemical truck,  etc., had been included in the  general levy.   This was really cap-  SUNDRIES i  Trad* Licenses  $ 2,600.00  Police Court Fine        450.00  Interest on Unpaid Taxes     5,000.00  Sundry  Itemt....  ..      200.00  ital expenditure, and under normal  conditions the money would be  raised by the issue of special debentures.- An item of $2,250 in  light and water department came  under the same head. But tor that  the committee anticipated that this  year the revenues from the latter  would have been sufficient to meet  all operating expenses and debenture charges.  Aid. Duggan reported that a few  days after the appointment of W.  A. Newton as fireman at the power  house he had received an application from Mr. Fisher, a returned  soldier, for the position, and asked  whether the council wished to take  any action in the matter.  The Mayor stated that he had  been informed by a representative  ofthe Returned Soldiers' Vocational Training Department that it  might be possible to employ two  men aa stokers in the place of one  of the present stokers, and divide  his salary between the two. This  amount with the allowance from  the Dominion government would  give them a decent wage, and they  would also be able to obtain the  necessary reference to enable them  to pass an examination for engineers papers.  It was decided to let matters  stand until further information  could be obtained from the authorities.  ���,  Revenue       Expenditure  Office Salariss $ 4,300.00  Printing oc Stationery       900.C0  Office Sundries     1,000.00  6,200.00  Lew charged to Light Dept     1,600.00    4,400.00  Interett and Exchange  1,600.00  Legal Expense  500.00  Council's   Indemnity  1,200,00  Cr.nt.          1,050.00  General & Contingent Expenses  1,000.00   $ 8,250.00  ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE....

The  picnic is to be held under the  auspices of the Dairymen's Association, and there will be several  important addresses on dairy subjects.  Local people are requested to  bring a basket with sufficient for  their own party and for one other  person. By this means the com-  tiittee believe that ample provision  can be made for refreshments for  all.  Those desirous of obtaining  transportation to the grounds  should hand in their names by the  day previous to the picnic.  As announced in another column, Mr. E. W. Hogan, of the soil  and crops department, was in town  yesterday and stated that the Department of Agriculture is considering putting in a bean thresher in  the Okanagan if there is need for  it. To find this out it is necessary  that the farmers send in particulars  of their acreage within the next  week tb Mr. Ben Hoy or Mr. R. L.  Dalglish. Any farmera who will  have alfalfa or clover aeed to be  hulled this year had better notify  to this effect at the same time.  Negotiations are practically con'  eluded for the construction of at  least eight 500-ton steel ships at  the Prince Rupert drydock, work  to commence within a fortnight or  three weeks, W. P. Hinton, vice-  president and general manager of  the Grand Trunk line has announced .  Visiting Ball Team  Beats Kelowna  Team Meets First Defeat With  Score of 3���2  A baseball team from Summer-  land and Peachland took some of  the shine out of our local boys last  Friday evening, beating them in a  hard-fought battle by 3 to 2. The  neighboring team came up by car  in the afternoon along with a party  of friends, and a start was made  before a goodly crowd of spectators at 7 o'clock. Thanks to "daylight saving" these evening games  are quite feasible at this time of  the year.  At the outset the Kelowna bova  played rather wildly, and it was  riot until their opponents had worked in a couple of runs by overthrows that they began to tighten  up their belts and pay attention.  The result was a keenly contested  game throughout, Kelowna striving hard to make up their losses of  the first inning. The opposing  team were equally keen, however,  and the game finally ended with a  score of 3 to 2 in favor of the  visitors.  A dance in the aquatic pavilion  followed, many of the visitors staying over for that event..  On the approaching Dominion  Day holiday, July 1st, it is planned  that the lacrosse team shall play at  Armstrong.   As  for the  baseball  Crop Competitions lo  fie Held lis Vear  The Directors of the' Farmer*'  Institute have decided to hold four  crop competitions this year, instead  of three as in 1917. The crops  selected are onions, tomatoes, corn  and beans. In onions and tomatoes  a plot J acre in extent must be  clearly marked or staked out in  advance or at the time of the first  visit of the judge. Full particulars  aa.regards the corn and bean competitions have not yet been received from the Departmont, but will  be announced shortly. The prizes  are 1st $10, 2nd $6, 3rd $6,4th $4.  5th $2, and the entry fee is 50c.  for each competition. Entrees  should be made at once io the  secretary or to anv of the directors.  There were many entries and keen  competition laat year, but the directors hope for an even greater  number of entries this year.  team it is not yet decided whether  the game is to be at Penticton or  Armstrong.  The Athletic Association held a  meeting last night to discuss arrangements for taking part in the  aquatic sports of the present season. At this meeting alao Mr.  Kelley, of the Royal Bank, was  appointed treasurer in place of  Jack Thayer'who had to resign  owing to his transfer to another  bank.  Summer Cutting oj "Fire-Blight  99  By W. H. Brittain and Ben Hoy  To cut out blight whenever and where-  ever it is seen is good practice, but there  are cases in a blight epidemic where thit  cannot be done. The firat signs of blight  are usually found in the blossom and later  in the spur, Trees may have 75 per cent,  of the blossoms infected. When such ia  the case the infection is usually spread over  a large proportion of the area of the tree,  and it is practically impossible to successfully cut off all infected spurs and blossoms  and if the blight is at all active, the mere  cutting.off of the spurs would only stop  a few of the infections, as by this method  it is impossible to go back far enoftgh to  get beyond the infection when the blight  is active. On many occasions when the  blossoms are infected, owing to the conditions being unfavorable for the development of the blight-germ, the disease dies  out in the blossoms. This is very noticeable in the "Wealthy" in many orchards.  For this reason the trees should be examined as carefully and as frequently aa  possible, and if tht blight begins to run,  cut off the infected branches well below  the visibly diseased area.  Twig-infections should be treated  similarly to blossom-infections. Twigs  are usually infected first at the tips. The  tipe wilt and bend over, and in the later  stages turn brown in the apple and black  the pear. The rate, of growth and  weather conditions determine to a large  extent the rapidity and distance that the  blight will run in the twigs. On young  trees up to about six years of age it ia  good practice to cut out diseased twigs as  they appear, and do all that is postible to  keep the trees free of the disease. The  same is true in older trees when there is  only a limited number of infections. However, in a blight epidemic on bearing treea  infections may be so numerous that it  would be impractical to try and wipe opt  the infection at thia season of tha year.  The expense connected with this work  would be very great, and there are few  districts where enough competent labour  could be secured to do the work. Where  twig-infections are very numerous on targe  trees it will be noticed that on many of  the twigs the'blight will run for a short  time and die out after going back a few  inches, while in others it will continue to  run throughout the senson if not attended  to. One or two of these infections ia  capable of killing the tree. The summer  cutting should therefore consist of weekly  inspections (daily where possible), and  everything cut out that threatens to do  serious damage to the tree. In all cases  whether infected with blight or not, all  suckers, water sprouts, fruit spurs, and  twigs of any kind should be kept off the  root, trunk* and lower part of the main  branches of the tree. These are all a constant source of danger, for one infection  low down on the main branch or on the  trunk may mean the loss of the whole  branch or tree. Suckers from the root  should never be allowed to grow, for it is  through these that the blight is carried to  the roots of the tree, and once the roots  are infected the tree's chances of life are  very smalt.  Much damage ��an ba dona in  summer  cutting if the cutters are not competent  and careful The writer has seen many  instances where more blight has been  spread by careless cutting than any other  factor. Failure to disinfect the tools and  cuts after each cut is responsible for a  grey deal of blight Disinfection ia very  important and should never be omitted.  Climbing the trees and bruising the bark  should always be avoided. In blighted  trees this method of getting up in the trees  to [reach the upper twigs and branches has  been responsible for the loss of many trees  that could easily have been saved. After  a rain the exudation is washed down from  the top of the tree and the bark is often  covered with germs all the way to the  ground. In such cases all that is necessary  to start an infection is to bruise the bark  and this can hardly be avoided when trees  are climbed by a pruner with shoes on.  The infections caused in this way are  usually low down >on the main limbs and  capable of doing more damage than several  twig-infections in the top of the tree.  Distance to Cut  This will vary with the variety, season,  and age of the tree. Usually, if the cuts  are made a foot below any sign of infection  there is not much danger of the blight  continuing on the same branch unless there  is a later infection, but the writer has seen  cases where the cuts were made ovor 2  feet below where there seemed to be any  infection (the cuts were well disinfected),  and the blight continued to run. The  susceptibility of the variety has much to  do with this. On young fast-growing  Transcendent crabs itseems almost impossible to stop the blight during the early part  of tha summer without cutting down the  whole tree. Spitzenburg, Wealthy, Alexander, and young Wagenera are alt difficult  to handle in the early part of the' summer  and cuts should be made 16 inches or 2  feet below any sign of infection where the  blight appears to be travelling rapidly. No  hard-and-fast rules can be laid down far  the summer cutting, aa much depends on  the season and severity of attack. No  matter how far back the cuts are made,  stubs should be avoided as much as possible and ragged cuts should never be  made. In older to get the best results  with the smallest waste of tree, close  observation and good judgment is essential  in summer cutting. One must be interested  in the work being done or poor results  usually follow.  Scalping or cutting the bark out to the  sap-wood where cankers are found is  sometimes practiaed. In the early part of  tha summer, up to the middle of July,  this is a vary doubtful practice, as few  people go back far enough from the diseased area. It is better to cut off all the  branch or wait until the canker shows aome  lina of demarcation between the healthy  and diseaaed area and then cut several  inches beyond this.  Cather and burn all prunings immediately after cutting.  Rutland News  'Frost oar nans oomiporatsatrt).  The Red X Committee thankfully  acknowledge the gift of 35 pairs of  hand knitted socks from the Girls'  Enterprise Club.  A verv interesting programme  was provided at the meeting of the  Women's Institute on Thursday  June 13th. Mrs. 7. Maxwell read  an essay on "The Place of the  Institute in the Community." A  letter from Pte. Perkins, prisoner  of war in Germany, waa read. An  exhibit of canned and dried fruit,  vegetables and chicken with instructions for their preparation was  given by Mesdames D. McDonald,  T. Maxwell and Gray, Two songs  by Miss Dalzell and a pianoforte  solo by Miss Morrison added to  the pleasure of the afternoon. The  drawing for the gold watch which  was donated for the benefit of the  Y.M.C.A. Overseas Fund, by a  member of the institute, was made  at the close of the meeting, the  lucky number being 71. The owner  of this ticket waa Miss Florence  Weeks. The sum of $25 was made  by this raffle.

As it was religious evening, the singing of "O Canada" waa  followed by the hymns, "Yield Not  to temptation" and " Stand up,  stand up for Jesus."  The question of participation, by  the club, in the coming carnival  was again brought forward. A  committee, consisting of Miss Magee, Mr. Fleming and Mr. Alva  Geen, was appointed to discuss  ways and means and report its decision.  Mr. Vernier of Ellison gave a  very practical and helpful talk on  "Courage." Three positive attributes  ol courage are that it is comfortable  serviceable and holy. Looking at  it from a negative standpoint he  pointed out that it is not recklessness, and not insensibility. He  emphasized the necessity of the  care of one's physical being and  the choice of good friend. He  gave as a Scripture motto "Wait on  the Lord ; be of good courage, and  He shall strengthen thine heart."  He concluded with Tennyson's  Sunset and evening star.

Will Operate Clover and  Alfalfa Holler  Since the Department of Agriculture purchased the clover huller in  1916 it has been clearly demonstrated that profitable yielda of seed  may be harvested from clover and  alfalfa under favorable conditiona.  Frequently crops of clover and I  alfalfa are cut for hay which might  better be allowed to set seed and  occasional crops are allowed to  stand and mature seed which  should have been harvested for  hay.  It ahould not be necessary to  advise farmera of the Okanagan of  this shortage of seed of both of the  above crops or of the advisibility  of saving that thin clean hay crop  for seed production. If in doubt  write to Casorso Bros., of Kelowna.  Those planning to harvest a crop  ot aeed from one or other of the  above crops will doubtless be pleased to learn that the Department of  Agriculture will operate the clover  and alfalfa huller in the Okanagan  again this season. The Department  is now considering the advisibility  of utilizing the huller for the threshing of beans and. peas.  Mr. E. ''. Hogan of this Department, who needs no introduction  to Okanagan farmers, has planned  tb visit the valley this week and to  spend a week! or more in the district when he will be ready and  prepared to assist in determining  what crops should be harvested for  seed. He will also investigate the  need for seed threshing machinery.  Some seed growers in past years  have suffered inconvenience  ihrough not notifying this Department earlier in the season of their  drsire to utilize the Department  huller. It is hoped that all thoae  saving clover and alfalfa seed cropa  this season will endeavor tp get in  touch with Mr. Hogan while he is  Registration Ends  Saturday Night  All Over Sixteen Must Secure  Certificate On or Before  That Day  Tho task of registering the adult,  population of Kelowna has been  proceeding, all the week, and although the number of helpers has  been increased it is proving to be  quite a considerable undertaking.  Indeed, without the ready co-operation of the people themselves, it  would be almost impossible to  conclude the work by the lime  fixed, namely, Saturday evening at  10 o'clock.  It Was the original intention of  the government to have the registration take place all on the one  day, and the wisdom of having  modified this by arranging to have  the work completed by that day is  now vary apparent. All the week  the work has been steadily proceeding and thoae who were wise  enough to get the business over  early will have reason to congratulate themselves that they avoided  considerable waste time and- annoyance of waiting by so doing.  So far about 1200 cards have  been filled out. The greatest difficulty ia of course to register the  Chinese, Japanese, Hindoos, and  foreigners generally, but with the  assistance of able and willing interpreters, most of these have been  accounted for.  In order to avoid overtaxing the  registrars on the last day people  are urged to seize the first favorable opportunity to register. The  Provincial Court House, where Mr.  Weddell is himself presiding, is being kept open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.  and in the evening from 7.30 to  10. The principal and staff of the  public school have been attending  each atternoon from 3 tp 5, and  tomorrow (Friday) will be there  from 7 to 10 in' the evening. W.  J. Mantle, N. D. McTavish, and J.  R. Beale, are also taking registrations at their respective offices. On  Saturday Mr. Beale and Mr. L. V.  Rogers will attend at the Board of  Trade room. On that day all registration offices are reauired to remain open from 7 in the morning  until 10 at night. When it is remembered that all the work of the  registrars is purely voluntary and  without remuneration of any kind,  it is hoped the public will do all  they can to assist them in their  patriotic endeavors. To do so  best is to register early, and also  to have tbe correct answers to the  question ready, and so avoid needless discussion and waste time.  The deputy registrars for the  country districts are as follows: ���  Okanagan Mission, W. D. Walker;  East Kelowna, W C. Spencer;  Belgo and Joe Rich, E. Carruthers;  Glenmore, P. A. Lewis; Benvoulin,  W. W. Grummett; Rutland, Rev.  T. G. Griffiths; Ellison, Thos. Bulman; Wood'a Lake, E. C. Shanks;  Okanagan Centre, J. A. Gleed  It might perhaps be pointed out  that it makes no difference where  a person registers, whether in his  or her own district or not. The  essential thing is to secure the  official receipt or certificate which  must in future be carried by every  individual. Early notification  should be made to any registrar of  any persons who are unable to visit  a registration office in order that  arrangements may be made, to  register them in their own homes.  A notable decrease in the number of submarine sinkings in western and central waters and the  English channel is evident since  the blockading of Zeebrugge and  Ostend harbors.  For wilfully watting a large quantity of onions that were fit for food  contrary to the license regulations  as set down under the food regulations act, a Victoria magistrate  has fined B. B.

CHAUTAUQUA   GUARANTORS  To the Editor of  The Kelowna Record.  ��� Dear Sir,���Referring to Mr. Old s  letter in your paper last week,  there is one fact that he has evidently overlooked and which, 1  think, in fairness to the Chautauqua  guarantors, should be mentioned.  Perhaps it is not generally known  that many of these gentlemen are  thoae who did so much also to  encourage the work of the local  choir to which he refers, and helped, by their loyal support, to make  the concerts the successes they  were.  It would almost appear from  Mr. Old's letter that Kelowna is  lacking in appreciation of local  efforts. It ia true that much ia taken  for granted and that, too often, the  work done is a " thankless job."  In these times, however, surely nobody, professional or amateur,  expects thanks for the comparatively insignificant services they  may be able to give lo help those  who have done or are doing so  n uch for ua "over there."  Yours truly,  H. TOD BOYD  A REPLY TO MR. OLD  The Editor of  The Kelowna Record.  Dear Sir,���Will you allow me a  little space in vour paper? I should  like to say a few words in reply  to Mr. Old's letter, both in justice  to this travelling show as he calls  it, and also to those who attended  it. Mr. Old objects to the Chan  tauqua visits here , on the ground  that they take $1400 and impove<-  iah the district to that amount.  Well, that is a very questionable  statement, and to my mind depends upon the people who go to  hear them, and the degree of  intellectual ability they possess to  assimilate and appreciate what  they hear. Alao, it must not be  forgotten that the Chautauqua re.  turns yearly only at the desire of  those who have attended and most  thoroughly enjoyed what thay have  heard and seen. As far as I have  heard everyone is well pleased  with it even as a show, but lo mr  and many others I think it has  been something much more than  just an amusement.  People who are able lo take  their yearly trip to Vancouver, or  spend tbe winter in California and  there listen to the finest talent,.be  it dramatic, musical or literary,  and enjoy a feast nf good things  generally (and no one thinks of il  as needless extravagance or lark  -of loyalty lo the country or the  community), such do not begin to  realize the treat it is for us who  are shut in this little pocket of a  valley, to come in contact with the  outside world.  This Chautauqua has been like  a refreshing breeze. Every number was good, the music fine; but  best of all were the lectures. Lois  of us are unable to trot up to Vancouver or to California for lhe  winter to hear such talent, and ao  we are dependent upon it being  brought to ua and I far one am  very glad that we have in Kelowna men who are progressive and  wide awake enough lo realize that  the more good thingsthey bring to  the people of this town the better  citizens thev will make, and to, listen to such lectures as those we  have heard from the lips of Captain Hindley and Dr. Wallace, can  not fail to give an uplift, morally  and mentally, yea and physically,  that far outweighs the value of the  price in money.  So much for the Chautauqua,  and now for a word or two about  ourselves. Mr. Old thinks we are  strangely disloyal to our own community. Well, I don't know about  others, but personally I make it a  point ot duty to support everything  that is done for a good cause and  I am not aahamed to say that I  often have to go without some-  thing else I want to be able to do  it; but I have been behind the  scenes and know what it is to  work hard getting up entertainments, and also I know the joy of  success, and the disappointment  of failure.  With regard to our local talent,  especially Mr. Boyd and Mr. Pryce,  I think that thev both of them  know quite well the high opinion  in which we hold them, and 1  have never seen an audience lack-  ing'in its appreciation of either of  them yet, and personally 1 think  they compare well with any outside talent we have had in town,  The concert Mr. Old spoke of  was duly mentioned in the paper,  1 know, and all due praise given  to it. I was a member of a largr  choir in Winnipeg for over eleven  years and our choirmaster waa a  very fine musician. We used to  give high-class concerts which entailed a great amount of work and  training for months, and if it passed off all right and was well  attended and favorably mentioned  in the papers we were quite satis-  tied.  Before closing this I wish to add  that I have always enjoyed very  much the concerts given by our  Kelowna orchestra, especially in  the early days before the war, and  hope when our boys come home  we shall have them again ; but we  need the little touch wilh the outside world as well, and there's as  much difference between reading  a lecture and hearing it from the  lips of an educated man who has  got something to say and knows  how to say it, and in such a manner that even the average mind  can understand and take it in, as  there is in hearing Melba sing on  the platform and hearing her voice  in a gramaphone, for there was  never one made yet I think lhat  can reproduce the words clearly,  and there's one point in which the  artists of the Chautauqua can help  aome of our local talent. We have  had this last week quite a treat in  Miss Miss Gladys Shaw's singing ;  her enunciation was so clear and  her manner so pleasing and simple.

Richrrds, stationed  at the Canadian Veterinary Hospital, Le Havre, France. Major  Richards was formeily well-known  in Kelowna as a veterinary surgeon.  "It is a long���very long���time  since I heard from you. Time  passes quickly under such conditions as the present. We look forward with anxiety to each approaching season, but now of all times is  the most critical yet, and many  strange and important events may  come to pass before this letter  reaches you. Kelowna seems so  far away. I have spent considerable  lime at the front, but have now  been at at thia base for over a year,  and have been in command since  laat August, with the rank of  Major. I have about seven officers  and about 500 men in mv charge,  and at present about 1500 horses.  So you can see my work and re-  aponsibility keep me well occupied.  I have seen quite a lot of France  and part of Belgium and have learnt  considerably about the French and  Belgian population. The Canadians  seem to get along fairly well with  them all, and especially with the  French men and women; in fact  the Canadians have won the admiration of all by their fine fighting  qualities as well as their generous  and upright behavior.  I have also peeped into real  estate values here, and find property here in a city like Havre much  cheaper even than in Kelowna, and  far cheaper than in Victoria or  Vancouver. In fact it makes me  wonder why there are such high  values in Canada. Here is a beautiful old city, with magnigcent views  and harbour and yet about a quarter  the values of Victoria. Farming  property is higher in proportion to  residential property.  France is a beautiful country, and  I like the inhabitants, and we certainly have learnt to admire the  fine efficiency of the French army.  The climate is not so attractive as1  in Victoria, but the natives claim  the war has greatly changed the  weather, bringing more rain.  As to war news, you learn that  by the newspapers as we also do  here. We hardly know even here  the facts. All newspapers must  naturally pick out the most attractive features for their readers, However the Germans glory over their  long list of victories, they have not  made much headway on the Western front, and our armies are in  good spirit and full of fight.  As to this unit, this is the only  Canadian Veterinary Hospital in  France or England, and I am proud  to aay that the Colonel who inspects  the veterinary hospitals says it is  the best in France. We have worked hard here and have built a  beautiful camp, which all Canadians  are proud of. We are directly  under the Imperials, and thev are  well pleased with our work. Most  of our men here now aie men who  have served at the front, and have  been wounded, and are not fit for  front work again. Once a year we  hold some kind of sports for their  amusement, and give some amall  prizes. If an) one in Kelowna  would like to send something for  the boys, it would be a great help.  It is a pleasure to note that the  Keiowna City Band ia again working and will dispense a number or  two in the park on Saturday, July  6th, for the Patriotic Carnival.  Come and hear them.  ces, and other side attractions, the  Court of Honor which we were  supposed to hold on Friday last  was postponed to Wednesday of  this week, after the troop parade.  Summerland wishes to play us  two games of basket ball for Juniors and seniors respectively, on  Saturday the 29th inst. If we play  they will come up by the morning  boat but we are not sure yet  whether they purpose to play in  the morning, afternoon or evening.  In the event of evening games we  would endeavor to billet the mem  bers of the visiting teams round  amongst different scouts' homes,  the same as we were in Summer-  land. Further details will be given  out at the parade this week, when  we shall also decide whether it  will be possible for us to play. In  thc event nf our having the games  we shall charge a amall admission  and make the entire proceeds payable lo one of the local war  societies.  We wish tn offer our very sincere congratulations to the Summerland Troop on the success  which attended their annual junk  collection and sale. There is a  very great deal of extremely hard  and unpleasant work in connection  with what the Summerland Troop  has done in this respect, but lhal  they were well rewarded by the  success which attended their efforts  is shown from the following clipping, frt m the Summerland Review:���  "Through the efforts of the  Summerland Troop, Boy Scouts,  a quantitv of waste material gathered up from nearly every part of  the district, has been converted  into cash and the Red Cross,  Home Comfort Club, and Prisoners of War Funds helped thereby.  Much of the material sold consisted of old rnbber footwear, old  rubber tires, old clothing and rags,  with some lead, copper, brass, &c.  For this $133 was obtained in  Vancouver. Nine hundred pounds  of old leather shoes and about 100  lbs. of wire bound hose were found  to be valueless. After deducting  freight and expenses almost an  even hundred dollars was left.  The assistance thus given to the  above patriotic organizations annually by the boys is doubtless  greatly appreciated and is much  to be commended."  Notes from th* Prairie Fruit  Markets Bulletin  By Commissioner J. A. Grant, Calgary.  Messrs. Mutrie, MacDonald and  Lowe, of the O.U.G. were here  for a day or so. They have been  canvassing the market prospects  foi Okanagan fruit Mr. Lowe  has been ss far as Montreal. They  confirm the bright outlook for B.C.  box fruits. Selling fruit in large  blocks will not be practised this  year. Prices have not opened yet,  bul it is already assured that Macks  will fetch about $2.25 per case  f.o.b. Vernon.  The reports on peaches placea  the 1918 crop at 57 per cent,  of normal against 73 per cent, last  year.  Strawberries, raspberries, cherries  apricots, peaches, pears snd green  apples are now removed from the  ban, but importers will require to  show need for importation before  permit is given. This is how I  understand the latest ruling.  Penticton  Steam Laundry  Laundry will be despatched from Kelowna every  Tuesday  Afternoon  returning Saturday  Morning  R.H.

Vance, formerly of  Rutland, but for the past few years  pastor of the Vernon Methodist  Church, was presented on his leaving tor his new location at Nanaimo, with an address of appreciation  and a purse of $125.  The Vernon News quotes a  statement from a Chicago paper  that a new kind of submarine in  the form of a fish has been invented by J. W. Gellatly, which if it  meets expectations will convey  heavy cargoes across the Atlantic  without coming to the surface for  air. The inventor is a sop of Mr.  D. E. Gellatly, and is said to have  gained the first inkling of his idea  by watching the fish in Okanagan  lake. He is at present a landscape  gardener at Zion, a suburb of  Chicago.  Nearly 200 B.C. delegates attended at Penticton last week for  the Oddfellows Grand Lodge,  Grand Encampment and Rebekah  Assembly.

The records of these men  are to be tabulated in detail and  recorded in the archives of the  soveieign grand lodge.

The wedding was a quiet one being attended only by immediate relatives  and friends, the ceremony being  performed by Rev. F. A. P. Chad-  wick. A reception was held later  at the home of Mrs. Geo. Slade,  sister of the bride, and after a short  honeymoon spent at various points  on the coast, the couple returned  to Kelowna last Fridav.  Flower lovers will have their  hearts' desire if they attend the  Patriotic Carnival on July 6th.  Mr. E. F.

The management of the picture  show are announcing a change in  hours during the warm weather.  The first show is to commence at  8 o'clock and the second at 9.30.  Serious washouts on the main  line both east and west of Sicamous  caused interruptions to the mail  service last week-end.  Mr. and Mrs. Jerman Hunt are  taking a holiday trip to the coast  this week. They motored as far  as Kamloops.  Dr. Noiman Telford, a physician  and surgeon of Vancouver, who  haa been staying in the valley for  some weeks and has several times  visited Kelowna, has, according to  the Summerland paper, decided  to locale here. He has been troubled with asthma and has be  trying the effect of a change  climate, with favorable results. I  Telford's wife is a niece of Dr.  Lipsett, of Summerland.  Fire Threatens Catholic  Church  The Rev, Father Verbeke has  lately been conducting a vigorous  offensive against the chicken mites  which had taken possession of his  hennery. Profiting by the lessons of  modern warfare he resolved to try  the efficacy of a gas attack. It was  most effective; in fact, Father Verbeke is prepared to guarantee that  there is not one mile left. All  have been destroyed. Unfortunately the chicken house, too, .was  destroyed, for the apparatus used  to generate the deadly fumes set  fire to the building and reduced it  to ashes.  The accident happened just before mid-day on Monday. The  fire brigade was quickly summoned and though they were able to,  prevent the spread of the fire to  adjacent buildings, the great length  of hose which had to be laid to  the nearest hydrant, and the low  pressure of water, made it impossible to save the chicken house  itself. There was a spectacular  blaze for a short while, giving rise  to a rumor that the Catholic church  itself was on fire. Happily no  damage was done either to the  church or other buildings, and the  loss was confined to the chicken  house and a few bags of feed  stored in it.

When you come to  judge you must think of this or  you might misjudge.  It will be most interesting for  vou if you follow the rooms from  the Receiving up to the Entrance.  Each room will be numbered for  your guidance, and the 'name of  the teacher and the grade will be  shown also. Rooms I and 2 will  be iound near the north door. You  should begin there.  The pupils of the Entrance  classes are providing tea in the  assembly hall for the benefit of  visitors and the Red Cross. They  are doing the work themselves,  even the cooking, and they are  providing for a crowd.  The grading examinations are in  full swing. The teachers are more  disgusted with them than the ch  dren or the parents. Next term  there will be no grading examinations at the end but the children  will be judged on the results of  tests submitted during the term.  This term, however, we must go  through with them, as our whole  organization haa been based on  the end of the term grading system.  ���      ���  ���  None of the present staff has  resigned, and, if all goes well, we  shall begin another term in Sep,  tember with the same staff. This  is a matter for congratulation, for  it is a great gain to the school. No  two schools are alike and it takes  months for new teachers to get  acquainted with the spirit and policy of a school. The present staff  works in splendid harmony. That  is bound to react for thc benefit of  the children.  A Chinaman named Mow Ying  was arrested late Saturday night  on a charge of being in posession  of opium. A quantity waa found  on him in a "Zambuk" tin, which  the wily Oriental claimed was  medicine. On the bottom of the  tin was an inscription meaning  "Heavenly Bliss," or "Celestial  Happiness. The stuff did not  bring Mow Ying much happiness,  fbr he was brought to the police  office and let out again on bail of  $50. When he appeared Monday  morning ft r trial he pleaded guilty  and was fined $25 and $2.50 costs.

Please hole this.  Owing to the extraordinary rise in the price of butter  parchment (which has gone up over 100 per cent) we  have been reluctantly obliged to raise our prices slightly.  Nearly all this paper was previously manufactured in Belgium, and needless to say this supply has been entirely  cut off. Unfortunately there is no guarantee against further increases, indeed, they are more than likely.
