MAY 2. 1918.���6 PAGES  $1.50 Pet Annum  CMC "Clean-up Day"  <       Next Thursday  Thorough Spring Cleaning of  Back Yards and Vacant Lots  Would  Make   Healthier  ^| Conditions  ! At its meeting Monday evening,  the city council discussed the question of the annual clean-up cam-  ' paign, and decided to fix next  Thursday, May 9th, aa the day (or  this great event. A thorough cleaning out of all back yards and vacant lots was urged in order to  make a healthier and more attractive city, Thoae who had any  spark of civic pride, it was telt,  ' would at once fall in with the idea  but for those who did not, there  would later be police inspection  and an enforcement of the regulations which prohibit accumulation  of rubbish.!  Three tenders' were opened for  the supply of a team and, man for  sprinkling the streets aa' follows:  Max Jenkins Co., 70c per hour;  A. Johnson 70c per hour; G. Dillon & Son, 65c per hour. The  contract was awarded to the latter  firm.  Mr. E. L Cross, of the B.C. Evaporator Co., waited on the council  in reapect to several matter* connected with the adapting of their  factory for canning purposes. It  waa desired to install a sixteen-  horse-power motor, bringing up  their total. consumption of power  from the city to twenty-eight horse  power. Mr. Cross] desired to know  if the city was in a poaition to supply this without delay and was assured that the city was ready and  anxious to increase its sale of power and would at once make the  necessary arrangements. The company also desired additional water  connection^.  The matter of the disposal ot  waste water from the canneries  was discussed and arrangements  made to go into the details with  representatives of the various  firms.  A letter from the Dominion Bank  advised the loss of $50'e worth of  the city's debenture .coupons by  the sinking of the a.s. Andania  during January. Application was  made for payment and a form enclosed indemnifying the city  against possible loss.  An application was made in  person by Mr. J. Birch to rent 26  lotsjfrom the city at $1 each. This  Was granted.  The Fire Brigade sent a requisition for a lawn mower to keep the  grass lawn near the fire hall in  good order. This was referred to  the Fire'Committee.  An application of a resident on  the northern part of Paul street for  a water connection was not granted owing to the distance from the  main.  Aid. ' Rattenbury reported that  the building next to the theatre  waa in a dangerous condition and  something ahould be done in regard to it. It was decided to have  the building inspector look over it  'and report.  Aid. Knc wles reported the planting of shade treea on the city  streets and expressed the view that  the public should be encouraged  to water and care for trees near  their property.  It waa announced that at the  next meeting ��� by-law would be  introduced dealing with the street  sprinkling.  Mr. P. Harding is a visitor in  town this week.  Constable Graham left to-day on  a visit tb the coast.  > Mr. and Mrs. W. T. Ashbridge  left yesterday after a few weeks'  stay in Kalowna.  Dr. and Mrs Keller left to-day  for Kingston, Ont., news having  been received of the critical condition ol their son Rodney who ia  suffering from an attack of pneumonia.  The police have been receiving  complaints lately about "horses and  cows tethered along the streets ih  such a way aa to constitute a danger to passers-by, and instructions  nave been given to take measures  to stop this practice.  Young Hen Organize  for Athletic Sports  New Club is Formed at Last  Night's Meeting  One of the'most urgent needs of  the city for some time past has  has been an organization which  would take care of and encourage  the different forms of sport amongst  the young men. A few years ago  there were several clubs enthusiastically maintained for baseball,  lacrosse, football, and all aqustic  sports, but with the war's drain on  the young men of the district these  clubs have nearly all dropped out  of existence. Thus the younger  men under military age who are  growing up have been left largely  to their own devices. This is a  bad state of affairs, and anyone  who has the interests of the young  men at heart will learn with pleas-  that a new association has been  successfully launched.ftojbe known  as "The Kelowna Amateur Athletic  Club."  The details incident to its formation were arranged at a meeting  held last night and the club has  already between thirty and forty  members.  - Mr. L. V. Rogers acted as chairman and later was elected president with Mr. E. C. Weddell vice-  president, and an executive consisting of Messrs. G. Kennedy,  H. G. M. Wilson, H. F. Rees and  W. M. Crawford. Norman DeHart  was appointed secretary and Jack  Thayer treasurer.  The club will endeavor to provide facilities for all forms of sport  and plans were made for the immediate starting of football, lacrosse  and baseball clubs. Norman De-  Hart was unanimously elected  captain of the baseball team, and  A. Woods of the football. Jim  Calder, Fred Fowler and Lloyd  Day were appointed a committee  to line up a lacrosse team. It is  probable also thet crews will socn  be formed for the war canoe and  racing shells.  The membership fee was fixed  at one dollar.  The success of a club of thia  kind depends very largely upon  the encouragement of the business  men and general public, and it is  hoped that every assistance will  be given.  Cafe Chantant Raises  Handsome Sum  As.a result of the " Cafe Chantant " held Saturday afternoon and  evening some energetic Kelowna  ladies managed to raise the handsome sum of $325, to be divided  between the. Red Cross and the  War Veterans, A feature of the  affair was the large number of  raffles of goods ranging from a pig  to a load of coal, donated bv merchants and well-wishers. A large  part of the takings were realized  in this way. The room was handsomely decorated, and was a popular resort during the day. The  programme of entertainment was  a distinct novelty and contained  many varied and interesting items.  The committee are desirous of  thanking all who contributed in  any way to make the affair so  successful.  In ��� recent campaign for the  "Red Triangle" with the American  Armies over $55,000,000 was raised to supply the recreation, social,  religious and other needs of the  men, to be conducted by the Red  Triangle. There ia a Red Triangle  man and hut wherever the Sammies  go on duty or leave. It is the nearest approach of home influence for  the lonely boys "over there." In  fact the doughty Y.M.C.A. men go  right into the trenches with the  doughboys, with their packs of  reading mstter, small games and  refreshments, not to mention the  stocks of stationery to enable the  boys to keep in touch with home.  Baron Rhondda has resigned  the office of British food controller  which he has held for the last ten  months. Lord Rhondda has been  absent from his post for several  weeks owing to illness.  Further Restrictions  on Flour and Sugar  Hoarding of These Foods to be  Discouraged  In order to prevent hoarding or  further to reduce wheat consumption in this country, so that Canada may send more to the Allies  where the cereal shortage is increasingly grave, the Canada Food  Beard announced additional restrictions on holdings and uae of  wheat and flour. The order provides that no person with the exception of manufacturers of flour,  bakers, confectioners, wholesale or  retail dealers or persons living at a  greater distance than two miles  from a licensed dealer, shall hold  or have in his possession or under  his control, more flour, made  wholly or in part from wheat than  is sufficient for his ordinary requirements for a period not exceeding fifteen days.  Any wholesale or retail dealer  licensed by the Canada Food  Board may not hold flour made  wholly or in part from wheat, in  excess of a quantity sufficient for  his' ordinary trade requirements  for a period not exceeding sixty  days.  On and after May I, it will be  illegal to feed or permit feeding of  whole wheat or any product  thereof except bran and shorts to  livestock or poultry or to permit  such feeding.  The Canada Food Board has issued an order strictly limiting holdings of sugar by persons, other than  cane sugar manufacturers, providing for seizure and forfeiture of  sugar held in excess of the quanti-  tiesprescnbed under the order, and  making a violation of the order  an offence subject to penalties  which shall not be less than $100  and may run aa high as $ 1000 or  to imprisonment for a period upjo  three months, or both fine and imprisonment.  The order stated that no person,  other than a manufacturer of cane  sugar, shall have in his posession,  or under his control, at an one. time  more cane sugar than is sufficient  for his ordinary requirements for  15 days, except persons living at  a greater distance than two miles  from a dealer licensed by the Canada Food Board, manufacturers  licensed by the Canada Food  Board and using cane sugar in the  manufacture of tbrir products, and  licensed wholesale and retail deal-  The Kelowna Womens Institute  will meet on Monday May 6th at  3 p.m. in the Prisoners of War  room. Miss McFarlane will' give  a demonstration. An Apron Shower will be held and proceeds given  to the Patriotic Fund.  It is probable that the Hon.E. D.  Barrow whose elevation to the  cabinet as Minister of Agriculture  has necessitated an election at  Chilliwack, will be opposed. Mr.  Barrow is an ex-mayor of Chilliwack and a prominent man among  the farmers of the Fraser valley.  The twenty-seventh annual meeting of the Presbyterian Synod of  British Columbia will be held in  Vancouver, beginning on Tuesday,  May 7th, and continuing io Friday,  May I Oth.  Mont Stromboli is in violent  eruption. Flowing lava has set fire  to vineyards. It is believed some  lives have been lost.  Stefansson, the Arctic explorer,  lies dangerously ill on Herschel  Island. A message tells of his being ill fifty days, after being stricken  with typhoid and pneumonia, followed by complications.  Vice-Admiral Schroder, the commander at Zeebrugge, according to  reports, will be deprived of his  command for being taken by surprise by the British last Tuesday.  An order by the Canada Food  Board for the curtailing of the  manufacture of candy ia expected  within the next few days. The  Food Board already has taken action regarding ice cream, limiting  the amount of butter fat which  shall be used in the manufacture.  Sergt. Anderson  Returned Yesterday  Yesterday another returned sol  dier was welcomed back in the  person of Serg. Anderson who left  Kelowna with the 172nd, and on  the division of that body overseas  was assigned to the Canadian corps  headquarters. Shell shock and the  effects of a touch ot the poison gas  has undermined his health to some  extent and necessitated his return.  He is at present on a couple of  weeks' leave and must report at  the end of that time at New West  minster.  'Hole of Road Id Canada  The legislature of New Brunswick has decided to conform to  the rules of the road now in operation in Quebec and other Canadian  provinces and the United Statea.  When the Highways Act recommended by the committee of the  whole House goes into effect, the  drivers of all vehicles in New  Brunswick will keep to the right  instead of to tha left.  The three maritime provinces  and B.C. have been the only provinces to retain the old English  custom of turning to the left, The  hope was expressed that similar  action would follow in Nova Scotia  next year. The change will not go  into effect in New Brunswick until  proclaimed by order-in-council. It  is probable that the change will be  made about the first of the year.  Another week of the great Ger-  .men offensive has passed with  much the same result, namely, the  gain of a little more territory but at  a fearful coat of lives. The most  serious gain thev have been able  to make was the capture of Kernel H^a piece of high ground  threatening the Allies hold on  Ypres. The Allied lines, says the  despatches, are yet all intact, and  we can only hope for a turn of the  tide soon, Monday indeed was a  bad day for the Germans who met  with defeat and disaster on all  sides in their desperate attempts to  advance their hold on the ridges.  Bona Fide Farmers  May Obtain Leave  Efficient farm laborers in medical  categories lower than "A" may be  granted temporaiy leave of absence  fron the militia on the authority  of the officer commanding the district. Orders issued by the militia  department provide that:  "Any member of the Canadian  Expeditionary Forces in Canada in  a category lower than 'A,' who  can be temporarily spared from his  military duties, may be granted  leave of absence without pay on  the authority of the officer commanding the district, oh production of a certificate from the agricultural representatives of the district, appointed by the department  of agriculture in Ottawa, to the effect that the man concerned is an  efficient farm laborer, or whose  services are urgently required on  the land.  Such leave will be granted in the  first instance until July 15 and may  be extended by the officer commanding the district or on or before  that date for a further three months  on production of a further certificate  from the agricultural representatiae  to the effect that the man concerned has, during his first leave, been  continuously engaged in agricultural work and that his service is  still urgently needed thereon."  Next Thursday May 9th has been  declared by the council to be  "Clean-up Day for Kelowna." Some  people have already performed  that annual ceremony no doubt  but those who have not should not  let the day pass without gathering  up all their rubbish and getting it  moved to where it will cease to be  offensive.  Probably the largest shipment  of hogs from this district went out  last week for Vancouver. There  were two carloads totalling 147  head, mostly front Gaaorso Bros.,  and particularly fine specimens.  An important amendment to the  Pound Act provides that where a  pound-keeper ia unable to get a  bid for the sale of a worthless unclaimed animal he may order its  destroyal, and collect his fee from  the government.  Aquatic Association  Annual Meeting  Look Forward to Revival of  Interest This Year  The annual meeting of the Kelowna Aquatic Association was held  Monday, when the affairs of the  past year were reviewed, and plans  made for the coming season. The  balance sheet showed a considerable improvement ovef last year,  though the Association ia still  suffering from the effects of the  dull times. The capital debt had  been substantially reduced, and it  waa confidently expected that there  would be a noticeable revival in  interest, and consequently in revenue this year. Last season's operations, after deducting $290 for depreciation, showed a loss of $110,  while the annual regatta had increased this by $26. Considering  the many disadvantages, the shareholders were well pleased with the  outlook.  W. H. Crawford was reelected  president, with E. C. Weddell vice-  president. H. G. M. Wilson waa  reappointed secretary, with many  expressions of appreciation of hia  past efficient services. Messrs. W.  J Mantle, G. A. Meikle and W. C.  Renfrew weife reelected directora  for a further term of three yean.  W. G. Benson was also reappoint  ed auditor.  It waa agreed to open the season  on Wednesday May 15th with a  dance in the pavilion and lo continue the dancea fortnightly thereafter.  Some change waa made in the  scale of charges for tickets which  will be as follows: country ladies,  $3 ; cour.try gentlemen, $4.  Family tickets inclusive, $16;  family tickets for two, $7.50; gentlemen, $7.50; ladies, $5 ; country  families, $5 ; country gentlemen,  $4; country ladies, $3. Transient  tickets will be issued for $3 per  month, in addition to which nonresident can obtain the privileges  of the association for 50 centa per  day or $1.50 per week.  Lord Rhondda Cables:  "We Cannot Achieve Victory Without Food."  " Canada Food Board,  "Ottawa  " In these stern days it is inspiring to learn that Canada is tackling the  food .problem with redoubled energy. The terrific pressure on our  military front makes it all the more imperative that those behind the  line should strain every nerve to defeat the enemy's avowed object of  destroying the British Empire.  " Germany hoped first to starve the Old Country by the submarine  campaign and then to smash her land forces. She has failed to starve  us and she will fail to smash us but we cannot achieve victory without  food. There never was a time when it was more needed.  " The Canadian farmer and the Canadian farmhand now have the  opportunity to make an effective reply to the enemy's present  onslaughts by bending their undivided energies to the increased  production of those food supplies for which we depend to such vital  extent upon your great Dominion."  (Signed)       "RHONDDA"  London, April 10th  The Prime Minister of Canada, in  a call to Greater Food Production,  says: " The cr'r.s is grave and urgent  beyond possibilatf Oti exaggeration."  Our Allies are depending upon  Canada to produce this year more  cereals���especially Spring Wheat���and  more meat���especially Pork.  The world shortage will inevitably  continue for y:-ars after the war���with  this continent the nearest source of  supply for the 200,000,000 persons in  Europe who will be clamoring for food.  Measures have been taken and plans  have been formulated which, on the  authority of the Director of Agricultural  Labor, will provide help needed for  harvest.  City and town people who cannot  go on the farms are helping to feed  themselves by growing their own vegetables, so that the farmers may grow  more food for export.  ��� The food crisis calls for the utmost  effort by all the people of Canada, because, as Lord Rhondda says, Food is  essential to Victory.

Next week for three days ���Tues  day, Wednesday and Thursday���  a great campaign is to be waged  throughout the whole of the Dominion to raise lunds for the military service branch of the Y.M.C.A.  So many campaigns have bern  run of late to raise money for various purposes, that it ie not to he  wondered at that people cau be  heard to say they are getting sick  of them���fed Up, in fact. BUT-all  this kind of talk is pure thoughtlessness. There is no use gelling  tired of it until the war is over and  the need for it is past. The only  remedy for any such tired feeling  Is to dig in cheerfully and dig up  cheerfully too.  War is a horrible thing, and of  all the agencies which are working  to mitigate its horrors, none are  worthier of heartier and more gen-  erous support than the magnificent  organization which has grown .up  under the auspices of the Y.M.C.A.  For years before war came to shake  the world and plunge the nations  into disaster, the You. g Men's  Christian Association was one of  the living and effective forces for  good amongst the young men of  man} countries, and it has proven  up to the hilt its virility and woith  by taking hold of the present sit  uation, and following ita young men  into the trenches with help and  comfort and fatherly oversight. Nobody needs this attention more  than soldiers on active service, and  it is quite certain lhat no sectarian  body could have achieved such  marvellous results amongst such a  cosmopolitan crowd as the "Y".  Under the very fire of the guns the  "Red Triangle" has set up its huts  and one of the most touching phases of the whole horrible business,  is the deep gratitude and appreciation with which every returned  soldier speaks of them.  The work is costing money, and  this must be forthcoming���must  be forthcoming I The work can  not stop. Distributed individually  the sum asked ia a mere trifle compared with the amount being spent  by everyone in personal luxuries of  all kinds. Make no bones about it  next week, when the canvassers  come around, but dig up the money  and think how much better off you  are than the boys at the front.  -THE -  Prices of Shoes  are not so alarming it you  BUY RIGHT.

CranbrooK will forthwith erect a  temporary monument in the city  hall square showing the names of  its citizens who have been killed  in the present war.  At Grand Forks the Presbyterian and Methodist congregations  are conferring with each other  with a view to amalgamating as a  united church.  The report is current that the  Land Settlement Board may buy  the large Coldstream ranch near  Vernon and subdivide it into smaller ranches for returned soldiers.  In the province of British Columbia, about 1,500 boys enlisled  under lhe "S.O.S." movement for  farm service, and are ready and  anxious to serve their country by  assisting in greater food production.  British aimen bombarded Zeebrugge while the Kaiser was inspecting the damage done in the  recent allied raid, German newspapers declare. He remained on  the Mole until he completed' his  inspection.  British Columbia haB now over  350 milch goats, owned chiefly in  small lots. The goat industry'in  the province is growing very fast.  The milk is proving highly nutritious and sanitary, the goats being  practically immune from tuberculo  sis..  The civic authorities of Vernon  will as far as possible endeavor to  plough up vacant lots for any persons who will guarantee to plant  and cultivate them this year and  are unable to get the ploughing  done by other means.  The C.P.R. has sent out a notice  urging all the section foremen, sla  tion agents, &c, to cultivate vacant  land available along the right of  way, the land to be supplied to  the employees without rent.  W. E. Scott, who has been deputy Minister of Agriculture in the  provincial government since 1903,  and who is widely known throughout the province, is dangerously  ill following an operation for stomach trouble.  A quantity of butter in which  was mixed finely cut wire in much  the same manner as ground glass  has been mixed in foods, has been  found in Calgary and turned over  by the attorney-general of Alberta  to the military authorities for a  thorough investigation as to whether the wire was put in with  "criminal intent." The quantity  of butter affected amounted to 390  pounds.  The 1918 convention of the  Western Irrigation Association will  be held in Nelson on three days  during the last week in July, probably on the 23rd, 24th and 25th.  This was decided at a preliminary  meeting held recently. F. H. Auld,  Regina; R. G. Marnoch, Lethbridge ; Robert J. C. Stead, Fr H.  Peter-, Calgary, and A. 5. Dawson  were executive members of the  association in - attendance. Fred  Starkey and J. E. Annable, both of  Nelson, were elected chairman and  secretary respectively of the convention. v  Holstein versus Jersey  The growing demand for "community breeding" which has arisen  from the rapid increase of dairying  in the district, has been productive  of much discussion as to the comparative merits of the leading types  of dairying stock. One of our local  farmers has been endeavoring to  gather authoritative information on  the subject from vaiious sources;  and amongst other things has lately  received some interesting data culled from the files of "Hoard's Dairyman," bearing upon the comparative cost of producinisf butter fat  with two of the best known breeds,  Holstein and Jersey,  On a strictly butter fat basis it is  stated that by results of all contests  and investigations cows producing  high testing milk will produce bul-  ler fat at tl.e lowest cost per pound.  At the Louisiana Purchase Exposition the: Hols'eins produced fat at  3 cost of 15.6 ctnts per pound for  feed and the Jerseys at 12.5 cents  per pound.  The Nebraska Station recbrds  show that the Holsteins in this herd  produced fat at a feed cost of 10.42  cents per pound and the Jerseys  at 8.24 cents. While the gross  annual returns from butter fat were  $7.37 per cow greater for Holsteins,  lhe Jersey! consumed less feed,  and were able to produce an annual  net return over feed cost of $2.56  per cow and returned 56 cents  more for each dollars worth of feed  consumed.  A Wisconsin bulletin gives the  following interesting figures, show-  ng the comparative returns from  $1000 invested in feed for each of  the two breeds:���  Holstein     Jersey  Value of butterfat of  herd  Cost of feed per cow  No. of cows  Value of products (fat  and skim milk) per  cow  Value of product of  herd  Net return of herd  over feed cost  Value of butter fat  per cow  Net return of herd  for butter fat  1,549.24  $91.07  II  $164.40  1,608.40  808.40  140 84  549.25  1,882.00  $53.88  II  $113.00  2,090.50  1,090.50  10173  882.00  The article in a summing up states that both breed are excellent  daity animals and that relative excellence is more a question of individuals in the breed than the  breed itself.

PARADES : With the exception  of a Court of Honour to be held  on a date to be announced later,  there will be no parades or meetings of the troop during thia week,  to make up for the many demands  we had made upon the time of the  Scouts during the present week of  the concert.  After the concert is over we  shall have to decide if, when and  where we are going to hold our  camp this year.

KELOWNA  LEOPOLD HAYES, Manager  OKANAGAN CENTRE  PENTICTON  Printed Butter  Wrappers  According to the new  Dominion Government  regulationa all farmers  who aell butter either  to the atorea or privately, ere required to have  it properly covered in  ��� wrapper on which  MUST appear in pro.  minetu letters lhe words  "DAIRY BUTTER."  The fact is also emphasized that all butter  in such packages must  be of the full net weight  of sixteen ounces, and  in default of same a  fine of from $10 to $30  for each offence ia imposed. Whey butter  must be so labelled  even when mixed with  dairy butter, and dairy  butter retains its label  though it be mixed  with the creamery product  You can be supplied  with neatly - printed  wrappers for your  butter at the Kelowna  Record Office, for the  following prices:  100PAP?NRrluTE�����c$1.50  200  500  1000  �����  2.00  3.15  4.50  These prices include Both the  Paper, which is the best obtainable  for ihe purpose, and the Printing  of same.    Please note this.  Owing to the extraordinary rise in the price of butter  parchment (which hat 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.

A Garden for Pleasure  Out of the garden and on to the  table, without having to lie wilting  in. farmers' wagons from the day  before or exposed for sale in shop  windows I How much better our  vegetables would taste, how much  more wholesome, and how many  more would be eaten, if we had  them growing in our backyard.  To cultivate a small patch is not  a task���it is a pleasure, and the  development of the crop is a study  that is.in itself interesting. Many  who this year will cultivate that  little piece of ground around their  homes will be surprised at the  amount of food which can be secured from a few square feet of land.  Canada needs your help in increasing the food supply. She  needs men, she needs money, but  what are men and money without  food, and if, bv the cultivation of  only a small area, vou can reduce  the demand upon the general supply, it will by just that much be a  benefit to Canada.  Canadians eat too much meat. A  greater use of vegetables would  tend to better health for many. By  growing vegetables, that they may  be available during the summer  months, many families will reduce  their living expenses and be the  healthier for the effort.

For instance, none  of the manufacturers of umbrellas  in England are permitted to operate  on their norn al lines, not because  it has stopped raining in England,  but because the government there  learned that the country has enough  umbrellas to last until the war is  over, so the umbrella makers are  now engaged in making wings for  aeroplanes. In England no new  furniture is being made, and aB a  consequence second-hand furniture  in good condition is worth more  than when it was new. Walking-  sticks, jewelry, builders' hardware,  etc., and many other things have  been practically prohibited of production because the resources of  the factories are needed for more  direct military work. In this country we have a long way to go before we approach the conditions  prevailing in those countries of  Europe engaged in the war.  More than 150,000 magazines  are distributed free every month  by the Y.M.C.A. Estimated cost  $15,000.

In the cropland character of its various operations, the Y.M.C.A. covers a large  field, but a mere recital of its activities is but a feeble testimony to  the true value of its work. In addition to what ir does for the material comfort, health and enjoyment  of our men its influence for all that  is best, is especially marked, and in  its purpose and intention it occupies a unique position.

The 99th anniversary of Odd-  fellowship on the continent was  celebrated Sunday by the local  lodges of Oddfellows and Rebe-  kaha with a parade to Knox church  for morning service. Special music  was rendered, the Rev. D. E. Braden occupying the pulpit.  The session at Victoria having  ended Mr. J. W. Jones, M.L.A., returned Friday last. Owing to his  position as a member of a small  opposition, Mr. Jones has had a  busy time for the past few months.  He has taken a prominent part in  the discussion of the Irrigation  Bill.  Apparently there has not been  a very hearty response to the re  quest of the Red Cross ladies lor  junk of various kinds. They presume this to be accounted for by  the fact that the barn belonging to  Mr. Lloyd-Jones is not known���  certainly not because Kelowna  contains no junk I The barn where  iron, rubber, rags, so on and so  forth, is to be left is near the office  of the telephone company on St  Paul street, which is situated be-  Ellis and Richter streets on the  north of Bernard avenue.

Unless it is that the Germans  have extended their submarine  operations to the Okanagan lake,  somebody must have developed a  mania for boat stealing lately.

Some time ago  Mr. Childei s lost hia boat and no  trace of it has been seen since.  Next Sunday morning in the Baptist Church the Rev. W. Arnold  Bennett will preach on "The Horses  and the Riders!"

The bride, who was attired in  white voile, was given away bv  her father, Mr. J. A. Hubbard,  whilst Mr. W. Hereron acted as  best man.

Miss Bella Meldrum is spending  a short time with Mrs. B. McClure.  The Boy Scout Concert  The Scout concert, which is to  take place on Friday and Saturday  has seemingly arrived at the stage  when it can be called a popular  annual event. Those responsible  for the arrangement ask us to draw  attention to the fact that tickets  sufficient to seat the theatre lo full  capacity twice have been taken by  different scouts for sale, and while  a few of them mav be returned  unsold, it is pointed out that all  who wish to see the Friday even-  performance will have to go early  in order to secure a seat.

This  should have read as above, "conserve flour," the  idea of course being to use Rolled oats instead.  Don't make the same mistake with your pancakes  and you will find the recipe an excellent oiie.  Try this Recipe:  2 Cups of Rolled Oats;  li cups of Standard Flour;  I Teaspoon of Soda, dissolved in 2 Tablespoons of  Hot Water;  I Teeapoon of Nabob Baking Powder mixed with  the flour ;  1 Teaspoon of Salt;  2i Cups of Sour Milk or  Buttermilk;  2 Eggs, beaten;  I Tablespoon of Sugar ;  I   Tablespoon'   of   melted  Butter.  Soak Rolled Oats in Milk overnight and in morning add  the balance.   Beat and cook as other pancakes  SERVE HOT WITH WAFFLE SYRUP  The McKenzie Co., Ld.  WM.
