Scott, deputy min-  'ister of agriculture and superintendent of Institutes, has arranged for a series of lectures to be  given' by Mrs. J. S. Chalmers,  of Thrums, B.C., on the various  branches of women's work, on  the farm and in the farm household..  Mrs. Chalmers comes recommended as a clear and forceful  speaker, and it is hoped that all  present members of the Institute  and many new ones will avail  themselves of the opportunity  of hearing a lecturer who speaks  from practical experience. The  greatest interest has been aroused where these lectures have already been given, many farmers  having attended and derived  great benefit.

Joffre  The French government has  decided to raise General .ToSre  to the dignity of Marshal of  France, in recognition of his  services to the country. A decree nominating him will be sub  mitted for the ratification of  parliament as soon as possible.  The title of Marshal of France  has fallen into disuse since the  establishment of third republic,  when it was specified that conditions under which it could V.e  conferred should be fixed !,y a  supplementary bill. That bill,  however, has never been proceeded with.  The Germans got no petrol in  the Roumanian oil fields. The refineries and wells were so c im-  pletely destroyed that they can >ol  be operated under a year, according I to statements of nearly one  hundred American refugees, who  have arrived in Petrograd with  their families from the oilfields.

Walter  Hume Long, Colonial Secretary  explains that the proposed conference is to consider with the British  War Council war measures, possible peace terms and the problems  immediately following the termination of the war. The attendance  of the Dominon's Prime Ministers  is especially desired and it is hoped  that the conference can assemble  by the end of February at lhe latest,  The calling of the conference  for February will doubtless affect  plans for the coming session of  parliament. If Sir Robert Borden  decides to attend, as seems likely,  he will be absent from Ottawa during the greater part of February  and March. In that event there  might be an adjournment nf lhe  session for a few weeks unlil he  returned with information which  might have a large effect in determining lhe action and policy of  parliment with regard to war  measures in Canada and the question of A further ejttention of the  parliamentary term.   rii   . According to news recently to  hand, the following Kelowna boys  were chosen to form part of a  draft which has since crossed the  channel:���  F. Cownie, D. Allan, A. Berard,  D. Berard. H.

The naval service department  announces that no more Canadian  recruits for th* naval air service  will be ffquired for some lime,  probably some months. A large  number ol Canadians have offered  for this service and enough have  been accepted to provide a steady  movement overseas for tvfo'or,  three months. In addition there is  a lengthy list of eligible men from  which'recruits may be taken.  CANADA  NATIONAL SERVICE  PUBLIC NOTICE is hereby $iven under the authority of the "War Measures  Act, 1914," that during the first week in January, 1917, an inventory will be made  by the Post Office Authorities, of every male between the ages of sixteen and sixty-  five, residing in Canada.  National Service Cards and addressed envelopes for their return to Ottawa  have been placed in the hands of all Postmasters for distribution amongst the  persons required to fill in such cards.

"Cry Peace, When  There is No Peace"  But Many Notes  Are Sent  J      Full of Suggestions  During the past week there has  been consideiably more news of  peace than of war. Suggested  peace, that is, but the suggestions  do not seem to find any favor with  the A'lied nations. There is no  evidence of any change in the disposition to regard Germany's offer  as merely a gold brick, and a trap  to draw the allies into what might  be    compromising     negotiations.  The unexpected note from Pre>  sident Wilson, in which he invites  the various belligerents to slate  precisely what they are fighting  for, has received even a still warmer reception. lhe unfortunate  warding of the note, which implies  that the war is but an ordinary  quarrel with much to be said on  both sides, totally ignores the great  principles at stake. The note was  ill-timed, loo, seeming to give support and approval to Germany's  crafty peace advances. Similar  notes have also been sent by Switzerland and Sweden.  itoirfe  MJW'UUU uBUuuluMbTb  While the guns of the European armies are thundering incessantly on many battleiields  in their mission ai niLlng lum  and destroying ��� ah's worns,tlie  grape cultivatois of .'"nine?, in  their turn, are using artillery to  good advantage. Hut theirs is  not destructive artillery; Uu v  are using guns oniy to protect  their viiieyaras against the destructive ehects oi hailstorms,  which are not inlrequent in tne  grape-growing districts.  Anti-hailsiorm guns, cannot be  sayl to be novelties in the strictest sense oi thtTword, ior they  date back to iby6, when an Austrian named bueger, who had  had an opportunity of Witnessing the devastation caused by  hailstorms each year in the districts of his country, conceived  the idea of tiring a cannon shot  at the clouds charged with hail,  using an artillery piece of special design, Steiger learned that  as a result ot artillery fire  directed against the clouds, the  threatened storm moved elsewhere before bursting, thus saving the crops in the immediate  vicinity of the anti-hailstorm  artillery.  A short time later similar experiments were carried out in  Italy, followed soon after by tho  introduction of this method of  protecting grape vines and cer-  real crops in France. In the  latter country the use of anti-  hailstorm guns has oecn extended until today they are in general use, principally in the Ut-r-  deaux, Bourgoyn? und Champagne regions.  A representative type of the  anti-hailstorm cannon is composed of four members. First a  tripod which serves to nipport  the carriage mechanism; second, a breech-loadtuj bm'.Ii in-  ism which receives the cartridge  and explodes it by hum us of a  striking or firing pin; third, a  smoke-stack, or funnel, which is  a continuation of the breech-  loading, member and servesas an  outlet for the gases; and fourth,  a sheet of iron measuring three  or four metres (9 to 12 feet)  long, surmounting the cannon  and passing the roof of the shed  that serves as a shelter for thc  cannon and its operators.  Following, the discharge of the  cannon, these escapes from the  stack or funnel a whirling shaft  of air, which, according to a  French authority, M. Vermoret,  brings about certain changes in  the atmosphere. The condensation produced by the discharge  modifies the unstable electrical  state of the hailstorms that co-  pose the clouds most feared bj  the agriculturist. Whatever  may be the merit of these theories offered in explanation of the  anti-hailstorm cannon, the fact  remains that this odd artillery  is serving its purpose well.  ���Scientific American.

The Rutland United Farmers  are to hold a meeting next Tuesday, Jan. 2 (instead of Monday) in  the schoolroom.  On Thursday last an entertainment was given on behalf of the  suffering Belgian children. There  was a good attendance and as a  reault the sum of $50 was realized.  The progtamme was of a miscellaneous character, the children  contributing n.ost of the items.  Recitations were given by Frank  Stonehouse, Daisy Wilcox, Leslie  Richards, Dudley Fitzpatrick, Miss  Munford and Miss Quinn, songs  by the junior boys and girls, a duet  by Miss Magee and Miss Faris, and  patriotic songs and choruses by  the school. There were several  pretty drdls. including "Soldiers,  Drill," by the junior boys, " Scarf  Drill," bar-bell drill, and a "Christmas card drill by the junior children.  The Sunday school entertainment in connection wilh the Methodist church, was held Friday last,  and proved very successtul. 1 he  children who had been carefully  trained by Miss Alda McDonald,  Miss Annie Gay, and Miss Joy  Fleming, performed their part of  the programme in a very credit  able manner. The chair was taken  by Mr. Mugford and a long programme of recitations and dia  logttes, interspersed with songs  and choruses by the school, gorie  through.  Recitations were given by the  following: Madge Sharpr, Franklin Hartley. Jean Sehell, Ernest  Mugford, Helen Sehell, Megan  Griffiths, Herbert Stafford, Helen  Longstaffe, Connie Stafford, Richard Wigglesworth, Daisy Wilcox,  George Mugford, Alma Bird, Gordon Hall, Alberta Woolsev, Everett Wi'son, Verha Ford, Barbaia  Harrison, Ernest Stafford, Edith  Wilson.  At the close Santa fpnearrd and  distributed the usual Christmas  presents to the children.  ' The Okanagan United Growers,  Limited, have lately commenced  an action against the Canadian  Pacific Railway for the recovery  of $3,909 damages for the loss ot  goods alleged to have arisen  through negligence on the part of  the defendant company.  Practical destruction of the enemy's forces in an engagement on  Saturday at MagrJabah, Egypt, was  announced by ihe War Office.  Thirteen hundred and fifty prisoners were taken.  Lumber orders amounting to  over 16.000,000 feet have been  received by British Columbia tidewater mills during the past few  weeks from the English government. One of the orders is for  half a million shell cases and will  use over 6,000,000 feet of lumber.  A naval battle has occurred in  the Adriatic. Austrian destroyers  came out into the straits of Otran-  to for a space, but French and  Italian warships drove them off  with what loss'is not known. The  French and Italian losses were  negligible.  According to a report Germany  has handed neutrals a sealed  packet containg the specific terms  on which she is willing to make  peace. Germany instructed the  neu'ral nations that the prelude  only should be forwarded to  enemies answering the peace proffers and actually requesting terms,  otherwise they will be returned.  The report said that in the case  of the note submitted to the Pope,  Germany permitted him to read  the secret list of concessions and  demands.  for it that it was a great time.  The Scouts have a good imirv  lady friends Oh!), and these  provided coffee and tea, cakes,  and lots of other good things  which you've got to be a lioy  to appreciate thoroughly, and  you bet, the Scouts did it!  The programme of the evening  included other things besides  feeding, however, for there were  a number of badges to present  to those Scouts who had lately  qualified for them. This important-duty was performed by Mr.  Somerset, of Nahun, who Ims'  lately returned from the front,  where he was serving with tin  2nd C. M. R.s. His chat about  life in the trenches was very interesting to the boys, who very  heartily cheered him at the r I 'Se  of the evening.  Preceding the presentation of  the badges was the eerraiony of  saluting the colors, which was'  carried out in true soldier fashion. Following this.livo recent  recruits to the troop,C McKenzie and I. Thomas were du'v -ii-  vested.  The badges presented were as  follows:  Rescue.���To Troop Leader R.  Keller, and' Scouts T.

"Games and fun ;renersdly  (some of it not on the programme) contributed to make a  very pleasant evening. One of  the games was to test the olfactory powers (phew!) of the contestants by setting them Hind-  folded to recognize bv smelling  and name a number of little  bags of spices, etc. Scout H.

Wilson,  dairy commissioner of the Saskatchewan Government, have  created a record for the year 1916  up to the end of October. The chief  item in the record is the increase of  production by half a million  pounds of butter, of 20 per cent, as  compared with the same period of  lait year.  During lhe season the co-operative creameries had a total output  of 2,500,000 pounds of butter.  Sixty-seven cara of butter have  been shipped to points outside the  province, while the local trade took  care of about four carloads per  month. There were 9,200 farmers  who supplied milk and cream lo  the creameries.  A new ven ure proved to be a  success. This was a trial shipment  of butter to England from Alberta,  Manitoba and Saskatchewan, the  provinces combining to make a  carload of butter, which went to  Manchester, England. This shipment of butter was made direct  from Regina and contained butter  from. Manitoba   and   Alberta,  ��"  well as that furnished by the creameries of Saskatchewan..  Plans for an amalgamation of  the sixteen co-operative creameries in Saskatchewan are being  periecled at the present: time.  ��        11        o  ��� ,i���  Mrs. K\ Graham waa an arrival  from Vancouver yesterday. s^rpcoRD Ask Gove)  at Kalowna,  Mtar and Prapristar  WNA   KBCOBJ)  THURSDAY, DEC a8th, 1916  ,;..   .

Every scout in the troop, and  particularly those who attended  the camp at Penticton in July,  iyi5, will be indeed sorry to  learn of the painful wounds received by former Scoutmaster  Pitman of the Naramata Troop,  in action at the Front, and will  all join hi wishing him a very  speedy and complete recovery.  Scoutmaster Pitman, almost  immediately after the Penticton  camp, enlisted with the 47^hPat-  tallion, then in camp at Vernon,  and this fine Battalion has lately been through some very hard  fighting, during which its officers  and men nobly upheld the mag-,  nificent reputation gained by our  Canadian soldiers .in this great  war.

May Cut Down Zepp. Raids  Dr. MATHISON  Dentist  KELOWNA   ::   B.C.  WhentheCbildren  Grow Up  one of your most prized  possessions will be the  Photographs you had of  them  in  their young days  1   Don't Neglect This  McEWAN  Pkotoirapher  Rowcliffe Block     -     Kelowna  The great Anglo-French offensive on the Somme in Northern  France has a direct bearing on  future Zeppelin  raids on Eng-  and. This hint was given by  a British. Official in a position  to know.  As the Anglo-Franch on thc  Somme drove a wider and deeper wedge into the Germgn line,  he  entire line must eventually  all back to straighten itself.  if his would mean that the Allied  aerial bases in Northern France  would also move forward. The  natural sequence it that German  military and aviation bases,  both in Belgium and across the  Rhine, become from a strategical and military point of view  more legitimate objectives for  Allied air squadrons. Hithelto  Allied air forces have been able  to make long distance raids but  not heavy ones.  The great Zeppelin hangars in  Belgium, including those now  under construction and those in  Germany from which the present raiding Zeppelins operate,  will become practically useless  to Germany.  Thus all calculations concerning the Zeppelin radius of action  atmospheric conditions, and the  other scientific problems of Zep-  Delin raids on England would  have to be made over again.  Even the radius of the great  super-Zeppelins would be serious  ly cut down, and the smaller  type of airship probably would  become wholly useless so far as  "strafing England" isconcerned.  DON'T  WANT CHINESE  There was q-hite a little excite  ment at the last Mission City  Board of Trade meeting when  the word "Chinese" was mentioned. The discussion showed  that there was no intention of  the Board endorsing the motion  of the Fraser Valley Growers'  in asking that the head tax be  removed so that Chinese could  come into the province���not  even in small numbers���as asked  by a certain resolution which  has been the talk of the province and the subject of numerous  resolutions, beginning with the  Matsqui council. A resolution  was passed instructing the  Board's delegate on the joint  committee to assist the growers  in securing labor, but not to  sanction the idea of bringing  any more Chinese into the  province.

Many have thought that the mere bigness of the  'mall order houses enables them to sell more  cheaply than the local merchant. On the contrary; bigness entails vastly increased expenses,  out of proportion to the increased business. Trace  your order through mail-openers, checkers, cashiers, more cneckere, billers, still more checkers,  shippers, teamsters, etc., with checkers to check  ihe checkers at every step. Then consider the enormous taxes and rents they have to pay. You  will find that your local merchant, who superintends his own business, is in a position to give  you batter service at the same or better prices.

We wish to thank you for the business  you entrusted to us during  this year of 1916  The Christmas business was particularly gratifying. The  customers bought early, were patient, kindly and appreciative, making our part in the transactions distinct pleasure.  Naturally, the goods we sold were decidedly more of the  necessities ol life than of the luxuries of life.  Several lines we were late in receiving and others we  were unable to procure at all, but we thank you for being so  willing to understand these difficulties and to uncomplainingly accept the situation.  Again for 1916 business we thank you and let us assure  you that our efforts for the future will not be lessened in  .   our endeavors to make this store for the coming year a  pleasure tor you to visit, and a  satisfaction for you to deal  at.

Japan's answer to President  Wilson's note, it is believed, will  be warmly appreciative of his  solicitude for the restoration of  peace, but will regret the impossibility of stopping be ligerency before the purpose of the war is  effected.  Germany in the form of a note  in reply to President Wilson handed Ambassador Gerard proposes  meeting the delegates of all belligerents in a neutral city. The note  hints that Germany's work for the  prevention of future wars can only  commence after the end of the  present struggle. When this moment arrives Germany will be  ready with pleasure, it says, to col-  laborate entirely with the United  Stales in its exalted task.  Don.t forget the Masquerade on  New Year's night.
