Though railways and  railroad matters are at present absorbing a large part of the hon.  minister's attention, it must not be  forgotten that he is a practical agriculturist of many years'experience  in the province, and in addition he  will no doubt have much to say  regarding the government's plans  to encourage and assist the farming industry.

O   Rutland News  {From our own oorreaponrlsntl.  Quite a lot of spraying has been  done in the district recently.  An ice creaii. social is to be held  at St.Andrew's Presbyterian church  Rutland, on Thursday, June 28th,  when ice cream, strawberries, tea,  ake and candy will be on sale. A  programme will be rendered.  The Girls Enterprise Club met al  the house of Mrs. S. Elliot on Tuesday evening. There waa a good  attendance and final arrangrments  were made for the ice cream social  which will be held on the lawn at  the schoolhouse on Friday evening, June 8th.  The service held at the home of  Mr. and Mrs. Wilson last Sunday  was well attended thirty-four people being present. Many friends  came out from Kelowna. It is expected that the arrangement will  be repeated at a future date.  The Young People's Society of  the Methodist church held a meeting last Friday evening when Mr.  Gorman, a returned soldier, was  to have given a talk on the war,  but unfortunately he waa unable  to attend. The evening was spent  in singing patriotic songs and an  impromptu debate on Prohibition.  It is hoped that Mr. Gorman's address can be arranged for at a later  dale and further announcements  will be made accordingly.  The Rutland Womans' Insfiltilr  will luvld ihrir meeting in llir  school h"iise on   Thursday   J"'"'  !4it3v,.   loon l^a wdl ba serv-d at  Seeking Fruit Markets  i     Id Orient  The decision of the United States  department of agriculture to send a  special commissioner to Japan,  China' Australia, the Philippines  and Siberia for the purpose of  seeking new markets in those  countries for the fruit crops of the  Northwestern States, has aroused  considerable interest among Okanagan orchardists, who are faced  with the same poor outlook as  their American competitors, owing  to the British embargo against  North American apples.  Transpacific markets as possible  outlets for the surplus output of  British Columbia orchards have  received compaiatiyely little attention in the past axcept Australia  and New Zealand, wilh which a  satisfactory trade is being developed. As far as known the first practical effort to sell British Columbia  apples in the Orient was made  last year when the B. C. Growers  Limited of Kelowna shipped a  Carload to China.  Fruit growers of the Okanagan  Valley are discussing the possibility  of the Dominion Government appointing a trade commissioner to  look into the possibilities of the  markets. Quick action would he  necessary to ensure success in the  face of the strong competition  which United States fruit will undoubtedly provide. It has been  suggested that this matter be taken  up with the Otta��va authorities by  Messrs. Barnes and Palmer of the  B. C. Fruit Growers' Association  while on their visit to the capital  in the effort to secure an embargo  against import of United States apples into Canada.  News of Near  Neighbours  The Summerland Hospital Society has recently received a grant  from the provincial government  toward the cost of finishing the up.  per floor. The society now hopes  to be able to have these additional  rooms ready for use at an early  date.  Principal Thos. Runkine of the  Armstrong public school, who a  year ago was given leave of ab  sence to enlist in the University  Battalion, has died of wounds received at Vimy Ridge.  The tabulating of the names ol  applicanta for inclusion on the vot-|  era' list has been completed at the  registrar's office at Vernon. It  evident from the results that a large  proportion of the women of the  districts of both South and North  Okanagan have availed themselves  of their first opportunity to become  voters as the additions to the lists  are almost entirely names of women. In South Okanagan 970 new  names were added bringing the  total up to 2,855. In North Okanagan there were added 1,398  names, making the total voting  strength of that constituency 4,844,  k.

I Grsce McMaster  Advantage of Keeping  Dairy Records  One remarkably satisfactory result of keeping simple dairy records, yields of milk ant) cost ol  food, is the knowledge gained that  cows of good dairy type do repay  the cost of extra feed.  One example may be given. Not  far from St. Hjacinthc, Quebec,  one hundred cows produced 104,-  854 pounds of milk more during  1916 than one hundred did in 1915.  The 1915 records showed that ten  were not paying so they weie beefed, and again in 1916 eleven were  sent to the block, being replaced  by better milkers. Better feeding  contributed largely to the above  noted big increase in milk yield :  more corn was fed, more clover  and a little higher meal ration.  The value of the extra feed was  $605.00 ; this produced more milk  to the value of $1,677.66, so that  the extra clear return was $1,072.-  66, and the cows were in much  better condition.  Dairy records help to select  good cows and to ensure larger  profit. Write the Dairy Commissioner., Ottawa, for free wiilk said  feed record form.  A hen owned by a New Westminster man has laid an egg weighing 6 3-4 ounces, a record weight  in hens' eggs for fhat district.  Rowland E. Prothero, president  of the British Board of Agriculture,  in an address said that under a  plan devised by the government,  the success of which he belirved  to be assured, Great Britain would  grow sufficient wheat in 1918 for  all the needs of the population,  with a liberal supply left over for  the livestock.  Thursday was the anniversary of  the battle of Jutland, the most considerable naval fight of the war.  In memory of those who fell on  that occasion, services were held  in London, largely attended by officials and by officers and men of  navy.  Premier Brewster IsXJo assume  the position of acting commissioner  of fisheries during the absence of  the attorney-general, and it is announced that in view of the fact  that the new attorney-general will  also be the minister of labor, the  Premier may retain the commis-  sionership, being a practical man  in that department.  2 Madeline Poole  4 Lloyd Williams  Honourable mention-Eva Blackwood, Ethel Duggan, Jessie Dunn,  (Section B).  1 Kelowna Lee  2 Bob Lloyd-Jonee  3 Gordon Cooper  Honourable   mention - Walter  Sinkinson,   Kiyomatsu   Yamaoka,  Leslie Lanfear.

Westbank News  (From our own enrrcvvirondent),  Mr. and Mrs. J. Faulkner have  returned to the Dundas ranch and  are busy spraying, &c.  Miss Grace Lake and Ben were  the guests of Mrs. L. Hitchner, of  Clencoe, for the week-end.  Miss Geraldine Campbell was a  visitor to Glenrosa this week as  the guest of Mrs. Greive Elliott.  The C.P.R. engineers are at Gellatly surveying a site for a carslip  near Gellatly wharf.  Mr. and Mra. Henry Drought  and Mrs. Clarke were visitors to  Westbank this week.  Mr. J. W. Jones and T. McAl-  pine, road superintendent, were  the guests of Mr. D. E. Gellatly on  Friday evening.  Mr. Weeks came up from Penticton Friday and took his daughter  Miss F. E. Weeks back with him  to stay till Monday.  Mr. Bughman, of Penticton, is on  his ranch again here doing a little  irrigating and a lot of sprsying  and cultivating.  The alfalfa crop is ready for the  first cutting and is rapidly being  turned into hay. This should have  a tendency to bring the price of  hay down a little.  Miss Weeks was down to her  home in Pentic'on for the weekend going by autJ Friday night  and back by boat Monday.  Mr. Washington Brown had a  serious loss on Saturday. One of  his cows had either eaten or drunken something that did not agree  with it for it suddenly expired.  Mr. A. W. Joslyn during the  discussion on Friday stated he  shipped 250 boxes by express  last year but bv the look of his or  chard it will have to be by the car  hii year.  Miss Clarke, Red Cross secretary, reports sending 25 pairs of  socks to the Kelowna branch of  the society on May 26th. Some  folks can spin a yarn while others  knit it I  Mr. H. Hirosawa is having quite  a time with his Sersgsttim flume.  It broke down in about one of the  worst places washing out tons of  earth and will now have to be carried on high trestles over the excavation it made.  The following were visitors to  Kelowna this week : Mrs. Linstrom  and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Strib-  ling and daughter, Mr. and Mrs.  Blackwood, Mr. and Mrs. Alec,  Nicol, Mr. and Mrs. A. W. Joslyn,  Mr. and Mrs. Gore and Willie, and  Mr. J. H. Campbell.  On Friday evening"- quite a few  people were at the wharf to meet  the member for South Okanagan-  but, what caused more surprise,  was a man in khaki by the side of  him who had been up to Vernon  this week and enlisted in C.M.R.'s,  and was returning to put his house  and things in order. It was Billy  Ball and always will be Billy Ball 1  It was Billy while he collected for  Red Cross, Patriotic and Y.M.C.A.  He has worked hard for the boys  who have preceded him, now he  goes to join them. Billy, we hope  to give you a welcome home again :  adieu.  Mr. J. W. Jones, M.L.A., came  over by Friday's boat to address a  meeting on the subject of boat and  car service. As Mr. Jones said he  was not fully acquainted with what  Increasing Okanagan  Fruit Production  Fruit Production of Province Increases 150 per cent, in Four Years  In four years the fruit production  of the province has increased by  150 per cent., according to returns  recently prepared by Statistician  Tweedale of the provincial department of agriculture, the increase  being from 1290 cars in 1913, to  3178 last year. The estimation (or  the coming season is 4,000 cars.  By virture of its heavy production the Okanagan and Boundary  district leads the province, having  produced last year, according to  the records, over 2,500 cars of the  total of nearly 3,200. The balance  of about 700 cars was distributed  through the remaining fruit areas  of Britsh Columbia. The Okanagan and Boundary districts are  placed together in the department  tables, bul of the total represented  by the two sections the Okanagan  contributes about 90 per cent, and  the Boundary about 10 per cent.  In small fruits the Lower Mainland is the banner producing district with 8? cars out of 190 for the  whole province last year. The  Islands, including Vancouver and  the Gulf Islands produced nearly  50 cars, and the Kootenays 37.  In tree fruits alone the Okanagan  and Boundary are long way ahead  of the other districts, with 2540  cars out of a total of 2989 for the  whole province. That district,  therefore, grew last year about five-  sixths of the tree fruits of British  Columbia. The Islands produced  162 cars, the Kootenays 132, and  the Lower Mainland 110. The  Thompson watershed 44 cars.  Production Figures  In the production figures given  below are included the fruit shipped, the fruit going into canneries  and some local sales.

W. Griffith's  latest masterpiece will be the attraction at the Kelowna Theatre  on Wednesday June 13th.  Never within the memory of theatregoers hu anything approaching the splendor and magnificence  of this attraction been presented on  the American stage. Nothing  short of a master mind could conceive the story and produce it as  Griffith has done Those who have  been of the opinion that Griffith  had reached the limit in his production of "The Birth of a Nation,"  simply gasp at the magnitude and  splendor of "Intolerance." As one  New York critic said: "The Birth of  a Nation" is to "Intolerance" what  the old one-reeler is to the feature  of to-dav."  The musical score is interpreted  by a large symphony orchestra  carried by the company and many  realistic effects add greatly to the  enjoyment of the attraction.  Patrons are earnestly requested  to buy their seats early and so  avoid standing in lineand possibly  missing  the  impressive  opening  Saskatchewan elections to the  Legislature are to be held June 27.  The government has granted  $10,000 towards rebuilding the  Salmon Arm school lately destroyed by fire.  A delegation trom Vancovuer is  at present in Ottawa seeking to  bring about the nationalization of  the harbour of Vancouver. The  suggestion is made that the port  of Vancouver should be administered along the lines of Montreal,  which borrows money for development from the Dominion Government at a low rate of interest.  Women's boots are to be lower  this summer but this has no reference to prices. It is announced  that the British government proposes to economise leather by prohibiting the manufacture of boots  exceeding seven inches in height,  Trade journals say manufacturers  will gladly com ly, though hoping  they will be permitted to make tall  boots with tops of other material  than leather. This permission is  not likely to be given. Fabrics appropriate for such uses also are  scarce.  Ill, Thompson watershed 44,  Kootenays 132, Okanagan and  Boundary 2450 cars.

It ia the most  inexpensive car to drive.  20 to 25 miles on a gallon  of gasoline is. an every-day  occurence. 33 miles is frequently reported by Ford  owners. Yearly repair expenses of less than one dollar  are not unusual. The car is  light in weight, and tires give  more mileage on a Ford than  on any other car.  You can buy a Ford for  -yourself and one for your wife  for the price of one car at  $1000. You can run both  Fords at about the same expense as for one large, heavier car.  You can always sell a 'used'  Ford at a good price. You  have to accept a big reduction for a " used " larger car.  Go and take a ride in the  1917 model. See how comfortable it is.
