KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, JANUARY 20, 1916.-6 PAGES  $1.50 Par Annum  New Council Takes  Up Reins of Ofice  Standing [Committees for the  Year Appointed by Mayor  As this year's council is with one  one exception the same as hint, the  usual first statutory meeting when the  reins of office are handed over to the  new coraerB was Monday morning a  very brief and unimpressive affair.  There was a full attendance, Mayor  ���Jones, and Aldermen Adams, Copeland  itattenbury, Duggan, liaymor and  Sutherland being present. Aid. Adams  was ihe retiring member, being replaced by Aid. ,1. Al. Harvey, and after  the usual preliminaries of swearing in  a resolution was passed expressing the  appreciation of the council of the Valuable services rendered by Aid, Adams  during his two years of ollice.  After thanking the council for their  kind sentiments, and assuring the  that although he would not be active  ly connected with the council during  11116, yet he would watch their progress with interest. Aid. Adams vacated his seat, which was then taken  by the new member. Aid. J. M. Harvey.

A communication was read from the  head office of the Canadian Red Cross  Society acknowledging receipt of 295  boxes of apples from Kelowma.  A plan of a subdivision of part of  block 17, map 202 was submitted by  Mr. E. C. Weddell on behalf of Mi C,  Hoy and passed by the council.  A contract made with W. Crawford  and Sons for one hundred cords :>f  dry wood at $4.00 per cord was ratified.  The final meeting of tho old city  council, report of which was omitted  from last week's issue waB held last  Friday week. The principal part of  tho meeting was taken up with u consideration of various sources of fuel  supply for the oity power house. Several tenders were read for cordwood  and alao a price from Messrs Hitchner  Bros. for dry slabs from the Westbank  sawmill. The price quoted was 25  cents per cord on the ground. These  had to be hauled ho the ferry wharf  and transported across the lake to the  power house. Mr. C. 0. Robson quoted for this service a price of $2.50 per  eord delivered at the city wharf.  Alderman Sutherland stated the  wood being delivered by Mr. Ambrogio  under his contract had been found too  green for immediate use, and it had  therefore been deeided to pile it and  look a^ev securing a supply of dry  wood for present requirements. He  reported having made arrangements  with D. Ennis for the supply of 2(H)  cords of dry wood at $4.00 per cord  with Mr. Marty for a further supply  and with Dr. Boyce for five cords of  birch..  After some discussion it was decided  not to purchase the slabs from West-  bank but to authorize the committee  to purchase further supplies of dry  wood at $4.00 per cord.  On behalf of the Finance Committee  Alderman Sutherland submitted the fol  lowing report dealing with tho eolVo-  tion of taxes:  Gentlemen:���  In view of the existing difficulty experienced by all Municipalities in the  matter of collecting taxes, it must be  be evident the system authorized by  the Municipal Act does not meet requirements under present conditions.  Tho Municipal Act aims at providing  a rem?dy with a rebate one-sixth off tux  es paid on or before a specific date to  bo set by tho Council; it also provides  that no special levies such as debenture or school rates shall be subject to  this reduction, ttie assumption being  that the general rate forms the major  part of the taxes and that the exemption provided for Bpecial rates will not  materially affect the inducement provided for prompt payment.  Tn oar esse, and we Wisve tie  to be true i of many other municipalities, these special rates form tho greater part of tho levy. The proportion in |  our city for 1915 being: goneral rate!  20 per cent., special rates 80 per cent.,'  of the total levy; the rebate, there*'  fore, for prompt payment of taxes is  only 3 per cent. j  This must necessarily l>e the case in  all cities such as Kelowna which own '  their1 public utilities, for if these utili- ,  ties are on a paying basil they must  provide for all expenses in connection  with debentures floated for their in-  stalution, but the Municipal Act provides that such expense must be raised from the operation of theso plants  for this purpose must be merged with  the general rate and lessens it by that!  amount.  The levy tor 1015 was as follows:  General rate (sub. to rebato) 4.5 mills  Debenture "     15.5 mills  School      "     5.    mills  If we did not own our electric light  and water plants tho rate would bo as  follows:  General rate (sub to rebate) 11.7 mills  Debenture "     0.5 mills  School    6" ..   5.   mills  And tho rebato on tho whole levy  would be approximately 8 per cent instead of 3 as at present.  During the first few years after incorporation we allowed by error, as  other towns had done at that time,  a discount off the total levy, and this  system worked most satisfactorily, as  during that period arrears of taxes  were practically unknown.  * Wo would urge that steps be taken  to establish such a system, and failing  this that the rebato should at least  apply to tho school levy, which is  handled by the school board in much  the same way that the) general rate is  administ?reil by tho oKy council.  We have at present $70,000 of unpaid  taxes which are debarred by the Municipal Act from being used as securiu  for a loan. We would recommend  that an effort bo made to have th  Municipal Act amended in such a way  as to give the council power to arrange loans on tho security of such  unpaid taxes.  We are also of the opinion that section 246 of the Municipal Act should  be amended bo as to make the period  of arrears to which a tax sale  should apply optional with the oity  Council.  During 1015 wo held a ta�� sale covering arrears for 1013 and previous  years. K a tax sa'e is held during  1916 it must, under tho existing Act  Cover the two succeeding years. This  under exist'Hg conditions might work  a great hardship,  D. W. SUTHERLAND.  D. H. RATTENBURY.  The report .was adopted by resolution and instructions wore given to  forward a copy to the Premier, tho  Inspector of Municipalities, and tho  secretary of the Union of B. p. Municipalities.  The police annual report was also  read, including a tabulated line-of police court cases during the year. Theso  numbered 78 in all, mostly miner tf-  fences. Tho report stated that thero  had been no serious crime during .915,  The value of stolen property dining  the yea'' amounted to 81)12.75, of  which ��261.75 had been recovered and  in most cases the thieves concern al arrested and punished. Of the total  amount reported stolen nearly half  was in one case alone. This occurred  during September, when a quantity  of octagon Btuel bars valued fat $300  wore stolen from the old Grant Smith  warehouse on Water street. The  thieves wore not traced nor was any  of the property recovered. During the  latter end of the year, the report concluded, complaints were received to tho  effect that minors had been served  with liquor in tho public bars. Thin  matter had received special attention.  Tho city hud been kept free from all  undesirables, male or female, and peace  and good order had been well maintained.  The financial statement and auditors  report for the year was read ^nd adop  ted.  Votes of thanks were passed to tho  city staff for their efficient services  during tho yea'-, tind also to the press.  Hospital Finances  Now in Good Shape  More Hopeful Tone Pervades  Annual Meeting  That u policy of rigid economy coupled   with    vigorous and sucoeairful of  Two Disastrous  Fires During Week  Farmer is Rendered Homeless  When Residence is Burned^  The fire fiend has been busy during  forts to raise funds had lifted the'(the Past week after |i��� interval of  Kelowna Hospital out of tho seriouB 8oraG months, two bad residence fires  difficulty of a    few months ago    waB | having occurred,  tho information given at tho annual  meeting of tho sooiety held last Tuesday afternoon. At one time during  the year the closing of the hospital  from laok of funds had been regarded  aa almost inevitable, but an energetic  appeal on behalf of tho directors, a  voluntary ���reduction of salaries from  the staff, and (l hearty response from  the public had BavecUthe situation,  and today tho hoBpital was in a better condition financially than for  many years.  The meeting was presided over by  the chairman, Mr. P. B. Willits, the  first business being the reading of a  report bv the secretary, Mr. A. P. Mc-  Kenzie, who gave a brief resume of  the year's work, and copies of the fi-  nanoial statement (reproduced 'n this  issue) were handed round.  At the beginning of the year, said  the secretary the board had been comprised ol Mr. P. B. Willits, president;  Mr. G. S. McKcnzie, vice-president;  Mr. E. 0, Melntyre, treasurer, who  with Mr. G. A. Fisher and Mr. II. J.  Hewetson made up the executive committee and Messrs N. D. McTavish, Geo  Rowcliffe, M. Hereron, A. N. Harker,  D. Leckie, D. W. Sutherland, W. HuUg.  H. J. Pangman, P. DuMoulin and 11.  I*. Burtch.  During the year the Board of directors met every monsh regularly, ono  of the meetings being held in tho hospital building, when the board as a  committee of the whole made careful  inspection of tho buildings and tho  grounds. Tho executive met on a few  occasions to deal with some matters  roferrrd to them and all recommendations brought in by thom were carried  The first was at Benvoulin on Saturday morning last about 0 o'clock,  when Mr. G. Longstaffe and family  were rendered homeless by a sudden  outbreak which reduced house and  contents to ashes. Mr. Longstaffe was  in town at the time attending the  drill of the Overseas forces of whioh  he is a member. Mrs. Longstaffe was  busy with her household work at the  time she noticed the fire, which apparently started somewhere under the  kitchen- The house was open underneath and the spread of the flames was  bo rapid that there was barely time  for Mrs. Longstaffe and her three  children to get outside before the erirj  tire structure was on fire. One of the  children went over to Mr. J, B. Fisher's house next door to summon assistance but though several neighbors  flocked around to help it was too late  to save anything. Clothing, bedding  and overy stick of furniture was destroyed, and to make matters worse  no insurance was carried.  The greatest sympathy is felt with  the family in their misfortune and  help has been readily forthcoming from  all quarters. Iho family have taken  up temporary residence at the homo  of Mr. Loosemore at Rutland.  Tho other fire occurred just before  midnight on Monday, Mr. W. If. Crawford being the victim, his fine house  on Uichter street being almost rt total  loss.  Mr. Crawford was in bed at the  time as also were tho three children,  Mrs. Crawford being out at a neighbor's. Hearing an unusual noise Mr.  Crawford went down to investigate,  and on opening the basement door he  out  by  the board without exceptiotitf^- met by the rush of smoke.    The  It has been definitely x ascertained  that Mr. F. F. Piokaro, inspector of  'hulls ���for the port of Victoria, was a  Passenger aboard the liner Persia when  that vessel was sunk in the Mediterranean by an enemy submarine. He  was enroute for Mesopotamia, where  ho waB to take charge of machine  nhipy at Basra. Up to the present nothing has Vwn learned of his Misty.  During the year there had been at all  times the most cordial relictions, and  although tho year had been a very  strenuous one, it had been a great  pleasure to him to have been associated with the board in the work.  Referring to the loss of $1,698, aS|  shown on the balance sheet, the secretary pointed out that tho amount  shown was made up as follows:  $940.80 was for patients' accounts  written off for the years 1912 and  1913, and 1914 and so were not a  loss for this immediate year's busi.  ness. Then last year the city of Kelowna fcave the hospital a grant of  8750.00 and in 1915 they granted only  8103.00. If those two amounts were  taken away, and the actual loss shown  it would only amount to $103.63 in  comparison with the year previous.  There were 142 patients treated in  the hospital during the year (55 less  than in 1914) 114 of these were treated in the general hospital, and 28 in  the maternity wing. Thyre were 62  operations during the year, and of tho  total number of patients treated only  four were typhoid, two of these coming from outside points.! The total  numVr of days treatment was 2116,  mado Up as fol'ows: Babies, 373 days;  mothers, 361 days; general, 1462 pdays,  There was a staff of the matron, two  nurses, a dietician and orderly, in addition to the secretary.  During tho year the bo^vrd had had  considerable difficulty in obtaining sufficient finances to operftte the institution, and at the regular meeting in  April la motion was passed appealing  to the city council and the provincial  government for assistance, but note  came and it waB stated that the hospital would have to be closed at tho  end of May unless relief came from  somewhere. At the next meeting tho  board decided to wait another month  and at the same time put their shoulder to the wheel, and the organization  at the present thru showed what  united effort could do.  Tho response from the public was  most gratifying when the real Bit ia  tion was known to them, and thanks  were also due, to the president who  never wavered for a minute, hut continually kept the board with the one  idea before them, that they ould not.  close the hospital, and today found  tho society in as good, if not hotter  condition financially than at any time  since its adoption.  During the year that had just passed tho president advanced a new idoa  in the shape of a 'Mumble Sale"   for  (Ossftstssl oa SsM I.)  frames were also coming up through a  hole in the dining room floor. Mr.  Crawford; is just recovering from a  broken arm, which is yet tied up in a  sling. Realizing his helplessness, he  gavo all his efforts to getting the chU-  dren out of tho house, and after lanv  difficulties he managed to get them  across to Mr. Howetson'a house next  door whfn he telephoned for the fire  brigade who arrived promptly. The  boye struggled bravely with the fire,  but the intense cold, se/Wa' degrees  below zero with a biting *ind, and  tho insufficient water pressure hampered their efforts and it Was some  time before the fire could he got under control and not until the whole  building had been burned beyond  pair. Only a few insignificant items  of furniture were rescued.  Mr. Crawford estimates Ins loss at  about $10,000, which however is part  ly covered by insurance.  Mi*. Crawford desires to thank all  tho many kind friends who assisted  connection with his disastrous firo and  Particularly the fire brigade boys for  their strenuous efforts to bftVe the  house.  Former Kelowna Resident  Dies at the Coast  Annual Meeting of  Farmers' Institute  Membership Increased 150 per  Cent. During Year  Mr. Cornelius Martin, a former well  known resident of Kelowna died last  Wednesday at Vancouver from pneumonia Following an attack of the  grippe. Tho family consisting of  Grace (Mrs. Dr. Thompson, Vancouver), Ada (Mrs, F. Forbes, Regina),  and Brewster were ail present at the  end. Tho funeral took place Thursday at Mount Viow Cemetery, the Ber-  vice being conducted by tho Rev. C.W.  Connor, assisted by the Rev. Dr. Sip<  prell, Rev. J. H. Wright, Rev. D. J.  Welsh, and the Rev. Braden, the three  latter all formerly of Kelowna ohur-  ehes. A memorial servico was held  Sunday at Ihe Kerrisdale church.  Mr. Martin, who had reached the  aB�� of 72, was one of the pioneer  ranchers of Lumsden, near Regina, settling there in the early 80s. In the  spring of 1907 he moved to Kelowna.  whore he invested considerable in property. He left this district three  ye���rs ago, an I after a short stay in  California took up his residence at  Strathcona Heights, Vancouver. While  in Kelowna ho was a member of the  Quarterly Board of (he Methodist.  church.  The annual general meeting of ihe  Farmers' Institute took place last  Saturday afternoon in the Board of  Trade rooms, with president, I.. B.  Taylor in tho chair. I  The Institute has made rapid strides  during tho past year, the membership  having been raised from 88 in 1914 to  213 at the eftd of 1915. The f:unncial  statement showed a balance in hand of  $50.17 after paying all outstanding  liabilities. The total receipts, .'nclud-  ing a balance carried over from last  year of $178.67 had been $562.92 and  the disbursements 9603,75.  Mr. Taylor said that the Institute  had held a large number of meetings  during the early part of the year chiefly with regard to the establishment of  a creamery. Tho creamery was now  started and going successfully, and  was an achievement which must be  placed largely to the credit of tho Institute. He also made reference to  tihe very succosslul short course in  agriculture held under the auspices of  the Department of Agriculture last  year. This had been well attended  and it was hoped to arrange for' another course tills year.  A highly, satisfactory feature, during  the year said Mr. Taylor, was the  largo increase in membership which  had risen from 88 to 213. This l.ad  been due t0 the energy of the retiring  secretary, Mr. A. L. Ward.  Several successful competitions had  been held during the year for orchards,  corn, and potatoes growing for boys.  Advantage had also.been taken of the  offer of the government to furnish  pure-bred bulls and boars to farmers  ���for the improvement of stock, and two  HolBtein bulls and a boar were now  in the hands of different groups of  formers. Any association of farmers  formed for the purpose can aVfttt them  selves of tihe privilege, it was Pointed  out. The animnls are furnished free  by the gavernment, and may be tih^tlg  ed every year or two, the association  merely undertaking the care and feeding of them.  A lnrgo amount of seed had been distributed by the government in the district, chiefly potatoes and corn for  ensilage. Th�� government was advising farmers to do more seed selection  themselves ftnd it was possible that  the distribution would be discontinued  after ft whi.e.  Mr. J. Brydon spoke on this matter  of selection, relating what had been  done in Washington and other places  in raising the standard of potato  crops.  Continuing his remarks Mr. Taylor  seated that arrangements were being  mado by the government to place a  seed separator in tho district to clean  grain from weed seeds.  Dealing with the future of the Tnsti-  tuto Mr. Taylor outlined a plftn which  had been discussed by the directors of  joining wish the Board of Trade and  the Agricultural Association in having  a combined secretary. (This plan was  tho subject of a report presented to  tho annual meeting of the Board of  Trade and ��� will be found reproduced  under that head).  A suggestion had also been discussed  to raise the membership fee from 50  to 75 cents in order to provide more  funds to Carry 0n the work. No definite decision, however, was arrived at  Tho advisftbility had been discussed,  Mr. Taylor said, of holding a farmers'  banquet and he believed it would be a  good thing to go on with it. The  Womon'a Institute had promised their  cooperation.  Mention was mado of a proposal  which wus being advocated by the Department of Agriculture to form Boys  'and Girls' Clubs or -Junior Farmers'  Institutes, to take care of the various  competitions which were being held  every year for boys and girls. It wag  decided that the new secretary, when  appointed should go carefully into this  matter and endeavor to interest tho  various schools.  The office?* were then appointed for  the ensuing year as follows: President  L. E. Taylor; vice-president, M. Hereron; and directors, Messrs. I.ynn Harvey, A. G. McGregor, W. Schell, T.  Morrison, R. L. Dalglish, E. M. Car-  ruthers, C0ok, S. T. Elliott, John  I.oathlcy and A. Patterson.  The president. w(as appointed to represent the Institute at the forthcoming  Central fsjuverrtwn Rt Vtatorta.  Board of Trade  Annual Meeting  E. M. Curruthers is Elected  New President  Mr. E. M. Carruthers, was elected  president of the Board of Trade for  the current year in succession, to Mr.  W. G. Benson at the annual meeting  held Tuesday evening with Mr. H. F.  Rees as vice-president and a directorate consisting of Messrs W. G. Benson,  J. W. Jones, F. W. Groves, W. Haug,  Cecil Rogerson, Joseph Casorso, W.E.  Adams and M. Hereron. Mr. N1. i).  McTavish agreed to continue for the  present the dutieB of secretary.  The retiring president, speaking in  reply t0 a v��te of thanks to the retiring officers, said that owing to present conditions there had1 been very  little activity in connection with the  Board of Trade during the past year,  which had been one rather of recuperation. He recommended the incoming  officers to continue to give close (attention to finances so that at the end  of another year the Board would be in  a much better position. The progress  which had been made in that respect  during the past twelve months might  justify a little more vigor being introduced into the Board. He believed  that the end of the war when it came  would see a great revival of prosperity in the district, and felt that the  new council should keep carefully in  touch with tho trend of events so as  to.be prepared to take full advantage  of it when it came.  The financial statement showed that  the outstanding liabilities of the  Board had been reduced to a little  over $500. The total assets ol the  Board after writing off depreciation on  building and furniture and eliminating  altogether an item of 8500, which wns  the value placed in last year's statement on the land in Washington, v. on  by the Board as a prize for an exhibit  of fruit at Spokane, were $1,242.36,  showing a surplus of 8737.51. The  total receipts during the year had been  $250 for subscriptions and $93 for  rent of the room for meetings, etc.  In connection with the prizes of  fruit land won by the Board at Spokane it was decided on the suggestion  of Mr. R. B. Kerr to forward a strong  protest to the authorities of the Spokane Apple Show against the treatment accorded to the Board in 'he  mattter. Mr. Kerr pointed out that  the two parcels of land had been valued at the time they were won as $3,-  200, and that they had since proved  to be quite unsaleable and practically  worthless.  Amongst the correspondence dealt  with at tho meeting was a communication from the Board ��� of Railway  Commissioners stating that in compliance with representation made by  the Board of, Trade the C.P.R., had  been ordered to reduce the charge  made by them for switching cars on  the tracks from $2.50 to 81.75.  A letter was read from, tho Oyama  Board of Trahe enclosing a resolution  which they asked the Kelowna Board  to endorse, "that for the public safety  especially in tho hilly districts, where  the roads are naturally dangerous and  th0 curves frequent, the government be  asked to compel all vehicles to carry  lights one hour after sunset."  Is was mentioned that by a curious  coincidence, the same question had  been the subject or a much-discussed  resolution at a meeting of the Farmers' Institute on Saturday last, and  had there been strongly opposed by  the farmers present.  Tho ysonema however was supported  by several speakers, Mr. H. B. Kerr  expressing himself strongly in favor of  it. He aoid the dlanger had been fully  recognized in England and other countries, where such a law had long br-*-  enforced. Ihirng recent years the  danger had born increased tenfold by  the introduction of automobiles, and  he thought such legislation - wgas much  needed.  It was decided by a large majority  to endorse the resolution.  A \-tter was read from th�� Duncan.  Boara of Trade asking support in  making representations to the government to establish a corps of "commissionaires" such aH existed in England.  Such a body it wfis claimed would be  a great benefis in providing employment for returned soldiers and would  also provide an incentive to recruiting.  A resolution was also received from  the Board of Trade at Grand Forks,  seeking amendments to the present  "Dumping Act" bo as to prevent the  importation of cars of fruit,    lumber  fCMtfaM mi PA�� 6.)

He desired to  oppress the thanks of the board for  the most excellent work d0ne by the  ladles' Hospital Aid and the Country  Girls' Aid as well as the Kelowna  players and Ladies' Club.  The board were sorry to lose the  services of Mr. SioKenzie, Mr, Hewet-  Bon and Mr. Pangman as well an Mr.  Forster, who succeeded Mr. Pangman,  but left the city shortly afterwards.  The vacancies were filled by Messrs.  J. W. Jones and E, Wilkinson.  In closing he desired to say that the  appeals made through the local papers  during the year for donations in kind  had always met wish a hearty response, and h�� took the opportunity  also of thanking the local papers for  their ever ready assistance at all  times.  An effort was made to acknowledge  through the papers all donations in  cash and in kind but they had booh  $o many that some might have been  missed, and should this have been the  case he trusted that they would overlook the omission.  Mayor Jones said the secretary's report of the present state of the hospital must be very gratifying to everybody. He did not knbw when a better  report had been presented. They had  all known of the financial difficulties  which had confronted the board at the  beginning of the year. Great savings  however h,ad been effected in various  ways and the operations of the hospital had been very economical. As to  tho sacrifices made by the Btaff, he believed there were few hospitals in B.  ('., where the staff had voluntarily cut  their salaries as had been done here.  It had been put up to them that something had to be done and they had  done it. He suggested that a hearty  vote of thanks be given to the matron  and Btaff who had voluntarily agreed  to a reduction of salary in order to  save the situation, and that a letter  be sent to them expressing the appreciation of the annual, meeting and of  all interested in the welfare of the  hospital. He also felt that the thanks  of the meeting should be given to the  president and secretary for the untiring work they hftd hone in pulling the  hospital through under very adverse  conditions.  The resolutions were heartily endorsed by the meeting.  Mr. P. DuMoulin pointed 0ut that  directors' meetings each month had  been well attended. The visiting committee had been to the hospital at  least once a week and the fact that  they had kept in close touch with the  working of the hospital had been an  importunt factor in making for greater efficiency- and economy. Lest year,  he said, there had been considerable  kicking going on regarding the hospital due to entirely unfounded rumors  which were going around, and it was  only fair that the public should be  made ((ware how satisfactorily things  were going at the present time.  Speaking of the president, Mr. P. B.  Willits, Mr. 0. S. McKcnzie said it  had been a mighty handy thing to  have him living so near to the hospital. He had been able to keep in  very close touch and had had his  hand on the lever all the time.  Mr. Wiliits in replying to the thanks  wh'ch had been tendered him, said  that most of the credit for what ty\d  been done was duo to the harmony  which had prevailed amongst the  hoard of directors. He himself could  not have done very much if the hoard  had not worked with him as they had  dome.  A good deal of praise should also  be given to *he '��col merchant for  tho wtfy they had stood by the hospi  tal Hnd kept ii going, A few months  ago they had been six months behind  in tho payment for supplies, and if  the merchants had cared to insist the  hospital would of necessity have been  done. ft  Although the financial statement had  been so favorable, he continued the  incoming board wore m>t going to  have any sinecure during 1916. Several  necessary matters had been put off  during tho year for lack of funds, and  some of these could no longer lie delayed but would hftV6 to be attended  to- It should be the aim of the board  also to gel far enough ahead to i^iise  the salaries of the si all as they cou'd  not lie expected to consinue at the  present rate.  There was one good thing abour tho  work during tho past year, hq said;  there had been no criticisms. Last year  the board hHd been doing all they  could to keep things golngr, and the)"  had begun1 to get von- disgusted when  unfair criticisms were fired at them.  Mr. G. A. Fisher proposed a vote  of thanks to tho Wadies' Aid and the  Country Girls' Aid, and all other persons and societies who had Worked  hard for tne hospital during the yi^r.  This was carried.  The meeting then took up the selection of a naw board for 1916 and tho  following were elected; Messrs I1, B.  Willits, G. S. McIWie, H. 11. Burtch,  G. A. Binger, I). Leckie, N. 1). McTavish, G, A.

BlQCkoby  The following letter from Lance Corporal G. R. S. Blackaby haB just been  received by Mr. P. DuMoulin from  Hyihej Kent, England.  Dear Mr. DuMoulin.���I suppose you  have been *wondering what has become  of me winoo the first draft left Vernon  last July.  The journey across to Montreal jvn*  rather monotonous; perhaps it was due  to being entirely confined to the train,  except when stretching our legs on tho  platform or doing "physical jerks" in  some wayside field or other at one or  two 'of the stopping places, such aa  Brandon. Kenora. Chaplean and  Smith's Falls.  Of course to a large extent the usual  "nights" of travelling were sonewhat  "dimmed" by the military discipline  prevailing.  We left Vomon on July 16th and arrived at Montreal on the 20th at 7 p.  m. You can guess how pleased we  were tb see the last of tho train.  We boarded the "Corsioan" of*the  Allan line about 8.30 together with  about 100 R, C. M. C. men eM a lot  of "Munition workers" from the coast.  The Corsioan sailed at 3.30 a.m. on  Wednesday. Beforo we reached Quebec  we ran aground for un hour, while allowing a collier (the Kosecastle) to  pass us.  At Quebec we took on about 400  French Canadian troops from ValuaXJ  tier. I think they were tho 57th from  Quebec and Montreal.  About 30 Koyal Marines and some  70 or so Bluejackets also came aboard  at Quebec. They hud been to Bermuda for their annual qualification tests  and were returning to England via  Halifax-Quebec route. As many of  them were almost fresh from the battles of Fnlklands, Doggar Bank, Heligoland, etc. I had a very interesting  time with them.  Thero was a petty officer from the  AudaciJouH who was on board her when  she sank. (By tho way, it is still denied here).  At midnight we were picked up by  our escort, which in the light of next  morning turned out to be the "Canada", the Canadian fisheries cruiser of  about 1,000 tons, and two 12-pounder  unci 1 3-poundet' guns. She was accompanied by a yacht modelled  very much on the lines of a modern  destroyer only, of course, much' smaller. Both were flying the white ensign.  Next day we passed a collier by a  hair's breadth in a fog.  Only a few vessels pussed us and it  was noticeable that they all. had their  name, nationality, and flag painted on  them in many places.  On the 28th four boats were slung  out, and all lights covered at night  while all the boats (14 in all) were  slung out the no��t day and at about  6 p.m., we were picked up by two  British deBtr0yers, the "Lennox" $50  tons)  and the "Liffey"  (550 tone).  The Canadian escort had left us after escorting us for 22 hours.  We made Plymouth in a fog at 5 a..  m., July 30th, landed at fi p.m., and  left Plymouth for ShornclilTe at 7,  where we arrived at 4 a.m., the next  morning, July 31st, Bo we wero on the  travel for 15 days.  I met my father, mother and sister,  by chance in Folkestone (three miles  from ShornclilTe) tho Bame day on  which I arrived. They happened to be  staying there on a holiday.  Tho best oxchango for Canadian currency we could get was 4s for the $1.  1 have never seen the branch of the  branch of the Canadain Bank of Commerce which waB so much talked of.  Sam Hughes came down to review  tho Canadians in August, but is it  poured rain for five nours, overybocVy  waB wet th tough and n��t very enthusiastic I can assure you. I have met  quite a few fellows from tho Bank of  Montreal, James, Davidson, ttush,  Barnum, Matthowson and last but  not least "Jumbo" Lloyd, also Bnhin.  I had made enquiries uround the  camp for him. and most people seemed  to think ho (Jumbo) was killed, but  on tho very first day 1 went down to  Folkestone I mot him in the High  street amongst the crowds of soldiers  there.  He was in kilts (16th Battalion). I  met him several times after that and  one day he disappeared and I have  heard since that he has obtained a  commission in the Imperial army. I  met A. Quran soon after, also H. W.  Birkett, F. Hirst (the oity engineer, he  joined over here), Kennedy, Hoy, Whil-  lis, McMillan and Pettigrew all from  Kelowna.  Contrary to what wo had been led  to believe, the discipline on this side,'  at Beast here, \b not by any means as  severe as in Vernon.  One of the first things we did 0n arrival here was to hand in our equipment, which was the "Oliver" and, receive the British "Webb" equipment.  The Boss rifle f.Jllowed tho Oliver  equipment and we got Lee Enfields.

The games     are  I oil very keenly contested from    start  j to finish and the evenness of the score**  I plainly ��h0w that the teams are very  evenly matched.  Those who have witnessed the games  declaro thorn to be as good as any  Boon in. Kelowna in some years. Probably a good shnro of the enthusiasm  shown by the spectators is a'onsed by  the cleanness of the play, which continues free from rough or foul play,  and very few penalties have beep hand  ed out by the officials in charge of  the games.  Tho weathor of the present month  has indeed favored the great winter  game and the finest sheet of ice ever  seen in Kelowna is now in possession  of ihe overseas forces, who IfJfGf  neither time nor muscle in keeping it  in splendid order for both hockey and  skating, and the price of admission  has been placed within the- reach of  all, fifteen cents admitting any adult  and 10 cents any child to witness the  hooke., game and skate nftcrwjard.  Following ore tho reports of the  games of the past week:  FRIDAY'S GAME  The Commercials and Armories came  together on. Friday Dor their first  game of the schedule and another tie  gamo was the final result, the score  being 5 all.  lit. tho opening period the Armories  got away to a good start und secured a two goal lead before the Commercials   wore   able   to find the   net.  In the second period however the  Commercials pulled up on even terms  only to be again left behind whon \V.  Raymer, the fast forward of tho soldier team found the net. At tho  ciose of tho second period the score  was 3 to 2 in favor of tho Armories.  During tho last period, however  some of tho fastest hockey over  seen on local ice was played. On tho  forward lino of the Commercials aro  a couple youngsters who aro both fast  on thoir skates and clover with the  stick anil this combined with the sensational" rushes of Campbell finally  put the Commercials 0no goal in tie  lead with .only five minutes to play.  Luok however was not with them and  just before ' tho whistle blew n shot  from the loft wing, which would have  passed many fret in front of the net  carooncd olf McLaren's ankle and  went straight into the not before tho  Commercial's goal tonder hnd n chance  to '"car it, (icing tho score, where it  ��1(\s allowed to remain, owing to the  foot that many skaters wore waiting  for. the ice.  The forwards of the Armories toam  all played fine hookey and only for  the strong defence of tho Commercials  would have scores more frequently.  Mention must be made too of the  fine work of the goal koe|)crB of both  teuniB. The prowess of Archie Knight  of tho 'Armories is too well know,, to  noed comment, but McDonald, wh&V  in rcuh'ty n novice between the posts  plnyed like a veteran and Odtman or  some of the other stars on the qpast  had better keop thoir managers away  from Kelowna if they want to hold  thoir job.

The Armories wero also strengthened'  on tho defence by Hooper, a now recruit who haB recentlyi signed on with  the looal squad, and who showed up  well at cover point.  The Firemen secured tho first tally  and started out fast, but were soon  overtaken. The first period ended with  the score of 2 all. In the second and  third periods tho Armories began the  splendid combination work which finally rewarded them with viotory end  taking the lead early in the second  period they were novor again in dagger.

LAST NIGHT'S GAMK  Last night the Barracks and tho  Commercials camo together forO their  second game and this time the tables  wero reversed, tho former winning by  the close score of 3 to 2.  Tho game started 0ut fast and furious and during the early stages tho  Barracks team took the load and\wero  novor overtaken, although at times tho  Commercials pressed hard. The play  was not as-fast as was expected and  not qnito up to the high .quality  of previous games and only at limes  wore pieces of fine stick handling nnd  splendid individual rushes seen. Combination play was not indulged in by  either team, thereby making tho checking more strenuous and the play a  trifle rougher than heretofore. Owing  to this fact the referee, Gordon Ken-  had n busy time and handed out several stiff penalties.  In the opening period the Barracks  scored twice whilo the Commercials  failed    to   register    a goal.  In the Bocond period the Barracks  ragistered another goal shortly alter  the whistle blew and tho Commercials  evonod up shortly afterward leaving  tho score at tho close of this period  3 to 1 in favor of che Barracks.  In tho final period tho Commercials  managed to get ono tally leaving (the  Barraoks team winners by the score of  3 to %   ,  TOMORROW'S GAME  January 21.���Armories vb Barracks.

Although  the whole Westbank district has been  heavily logged for several years, yet  the product this year seems equal to  that of previous years, and the high  quality of the product is proved by  the fact that a ready market is always obtained for Westbank logs.  ft       ���  On Saturday afternoon, January 8th  the Westbank Farmers' Institute held  its annual meeting, the purpose of  which was to elect the officers for tho  present yeftr. Although the attendance -was not large there wero sufficient  prcBent'to carry on the election rou-  tino with the following results: Free.,  W. M. Gore; Secy.-Trees., Mason Rus-  Bell; Auditor, Cyril Gore. A. vote of  thanks was extended to the retiring  officers for their efforts on behalf of  the community, and tho Instituto a8 a  whole look forward to a year of I even  greater service to tho local farmers in  their varied problems. President Gore  was selected as delegato to attend  the Provincial Farmers' Institute Convention to bo hold al tho ,roast in tho  near future. Through tho efforts of  tho Institute a desire is being aroused  in local boys and girls- for a Juvenile  Instituto. Such an organization wilt  be entirely freo from the adult society  and a membership of ten is all that is  required to form the instituto. Many  of the local children are taking up the  matter seriously, and moreover the  juvenile organization is now necessary  if tho boys and girls wish to continuo  to compote in tho better crops competitions now carried on by the provincial government. It will bo remembered that Inst year many local children  took port, in tho potato competition,  two of whom, Masters H��rry and  George Brown won 3rd and 6th places  among tho boya of tho whole province.

Gray a few days ago dropped  a high-explosive fajomb amongst his  many friends by making the announce"  ment, that he would shortly be leaving  lor Calgary, with the intention of enlisting with the new battalion which is  to be organized there under the command of Col. Moriit and Major Robie.  'Ihe aforesaid friends were inclined to  be a little incredulous at first, but it  is reasonable to suppose he meant it  because he left by the boat for Calgary Wednesday morning. As many  people know Mr. Gray has had considerable experience in. military matters  both in Canada and the old country.  He was for several years in the 90th  at Winnipeg where he held the rank of  Sergt.-Major, and will no doubt be able to give a good amount of himself  when he gets to Calgary. During the  time he has been in Kelowna, some  seven or eight years, Mr. Gray has  been clpsely associated with the local  Masonic lodge of which body he waB  the very efficient secretary. In token  of appreciation Mr. Gray was presented at the lost meeting with a handsome case of .gold-mounted pipes and  a large jar of tobacco. leedless to  say Mr. Gray will be missed a dozen  different ways.

Because you know y0ur  mother so well and because you have  seen her wait on you hand and loot,  and because you yourself worship her  in your inmost soul, you shjould show  her more politeness than anyone else  in tho whole world. Show your colors Scouts! Romember a scout is only  as polite a8 ho is polite to his own  mother.

Magic  baking  POWDEK  Life After the Great  European War  (By Twells Brex, in the 'Daily Mail'  London).  The great war has altered the social  face of Europe just as much as the  fflflOiftl epoch once' altered ita physical  surface.  Tho Hohenzollern glacial period has  aet back the growth of civilization by  a hundred years; it had crumbled Europe's social structure, atunted its arts  and sciences, and withered away ita  web of travel and intercourse. A hundred years hence the people of every  warring nation will still be taxed, by  the debts of the great war; dreadful  mumorieB will still keep a spiritual  and social gulf between civilized Europe and the Teuton.  Twenty-five million men have taken  up arms. It is estimated that nine  million already havo been slain or disabled, and that the total destruction  of life in Europe in two yea*s of war  will be twenty millions.  This is the combatant waste alone.  Civilian populations everywhere in Europe, even of neutral nations, are affected by the physical and nerve stress  of Armageddon. Nearly everywhere  birth-rate is falling, the death-rate is  rising. British births are already 40,-  000 a year less and deaths 50,000  more than in li>13, a net deficit of  00,000 lives a year���the total population of whole towns like Coventry or  Northampton. Paris is losing similarly, and Berlin and Vienna much  more heavily.  When the great war iB over ft shrunk  en Europe will realizo that no plague  of the middle ages ever ravaged it  like the black death that came from  Potsdam.  The direct monetary cost of the war  to the belligerentB can be put at nearly ten thousand million pounds a year  figures that like the astronomers' distances, outpass the human conception.  Titanic as the are, the figures of the  indirect cost of the war esceed them;  lost trade, lost production and creations of soience, art, humanitarianism  and discovery that have perished in  embryo.  Europe, after the war will be a lit-  tlo Europe, with a population not  much greater than the population of  Europe before the Napoleonic warB, a  Europo with   theso  stupend0uB   Booial  Three    women   to two men of marriageable age.  problems:  More old men than young men.  More boys than* workers in their  prime.  More physically unfit than physically  fit. ...  Millions of men to be fitted again  into civil employment, millions of  women who have learned man's work  and earned his wages.  Millions of manual workers who will  have become accustomed to wages  twice or three times as high as they  earned in pre-war days, and who will  still expect these wages.  Greatly diminished food supplies for  many years owing to ravage of cultivated lands, diminished breeding stock  and shortage of production.  High commercial freights, dear imports and handicapped exports, owing to shortage of ships.  These are only a few of the major  problems that will confront Europe  afler the war. There are pessimists  who prophesy industrial revolution  There are other prophets who mutter  of a war of that sex rivalry and antagonism whose grim beginnings we  British saw in days when the surplus  woman was only one to every fee-in-  teen men.  There are other pessimists who pro-  phosy that the century a^cr tho j/rrat  war will havo to be Bpent in sheer  material rebuilding, and that all '.he  sciences will stand *till, a'l tho at<s  languish, all tho luminaries rust, while  a shattered Europe lies in a spiritual  and intellectual stupor like that very  strange stupor of the 'Dark Ages/  Safe prophets are ordinary citizens  who say to each other so often, 'Our  old life has gone; nothing will ever be  tho same again.' The social face of Europe    is cfasragod.    OM classes     a*d  castes have been levelled; new and assertive classes have risen. Many men  have been broken, many men nave  been lifted. There were democrats  when the war broke out who cried  in despair. 'This is the end of democracy.' There are other voices which  whisper now, 'Democracy alone will  emerge stronger from the war���and  what will its demands be?'  As in the great things bo in the  smaller things, it will bo a flew world.  took at thi> map of Europe and remember how the touring agencies had  mado it. ft holiday ground for us. For  a generation to come the entire of  that map is blotted out. What Briton will take samples or patterns to  Berlin? What tourist will talk in our  time of tho Rhine or of the Black Forest? The great war has set back European travel and comity to the days  of the stage coaches.  Turn from the continent to home,  and think of the new world. Already  all its chronicles of 1914 aro musty  and unreal- Where are its 'celebfites'  and its 'notorieties,' its puppet passions, its 'ims' and 'antis?'  Party politician has become an effigy  to smile at in a museum? Was it not  in the late summer of 1911 that tho  'tango* wub tho noweBt relaxation,  golf the serious pre-occupatton of multitudes, and the coming league foot-  ball season the sole preoccupation of  greater multitudes? In July 1914 the  "daring' actress, the 'realistic' novelist, tfie man who had broken a record  on a billiard table, commanded our  homage. The summer of 1014 was the  last performance of a stale comedy.  The book ot words is torn up, the  theatre is in the hands of the housebreakers, its licence is revoked, its  players have forgotten their parts and  have crept away.  Nothing will be the same again. We  must make our best of a harder world  and a narrower world. Europe can  rebuild herself only by that stem efficiency of Rome when she first rose  by Tiber. The curfew hour of all who  survive these days will be late, the  play hours short, the pleasure money  scanty. But, despite all the prophets  of woe, tho changed world is going to  be a better world. These days of our  test and agony have hacked out new  touchstones of value and worth. Hun  tfreda of thousands of the new men  will como .tome from the bnttlefields  to claim voice and power among the  masons; hundreds of thousands of the  women who have done the homo work  of the absent and kept their hearts  shining will demand troweh, and cement in our work of rebuilding. Neither marionettes who would dance ub  back to the old fancy fair nor revolutionaries - who would dance us to  worso than Armageddon will prevail.  It will be a now world, and nothing  will be the same aga:n' but, for all  its burdens and sorrows, it will not  be a worse world���unless the Allies are  tricked into 'peace' befors the militar  ism of Prussia is utterly broken.  VALUE OF WIRELESS  During the fiscal year of 1916 the  inspectors of the radio buroau of  Washington reported 26 cases of vessels leaving1 United States ports which  met with accident or disaster requiring the use of wireless to summon assistance. Four of these calls were due  to fife, twelve to running ashore,  stranding or getting into an ice jam,  three to breakage of machinery, lour  to collisions, one to shifting cargo,  one to vessel ' being storm-battered and  waterlogged, and one to being torpedoed.  Except in the case of the Lusitanda,  which was torpedoed, the assistance  rendered resulted in but two lives being lost. Since the closing of the fiscal year the following marine disasters  havo occurred in which the use of the  wiroless helped to save a number of  lives.  On September 15th, the Fabre liner  Sftnta Anna, bound from New York to  Naples, with 1,700 aouls on board,  caught fire in mid-ocean, and all the  passengers and crew were saved. The  S.O.S., call brought the Italian steamer Anemia to her aid, GOO passengers  were Safely transferred, and the burning vessel was escorted to the Azores.  Six days later the Greek liner Ath-  inai, bound fron New York to Piraeus  and Saloniki caught fire 660 miles  east of Sandy Hook, with 470 passengers and orew on board, and had to  be abandoned. The Anchor liner Tub-  cania responded to the S.O.S., call  and took ���off 341 passengers in lifeboats, and the remainder were taken  to New York on the freighter Rodt  mimian Prince.

How Roosevelt Foiled  the Present Kaiser  ' A recently published biography of  John Hoy, Foreign Secretary in the  cabinet of President William McKinley  and a member of President Roosevelt's  cabinets, has brought to light the man  ner in which the German attempts to  obtain possession of a naval base in  America were foiled by President  Roosevelt.  At least two distinct attempts are  known to have been mude by .'the Kaiser without success, before the blockade of the Venezuelan coast, in whioh  Germany was supported by Great Britain and Italy, afforded him what he  poncluded was tho very opportunity  for which h(> had been waiting.  The issue between the European  powers and Venezuela was that of the  payment of the debts which the latter,  owed tho former. President Roosevelt  and Mr. Hay took a Btrong stand in  favor of arbitration. Great Britain  and Italy wero willing but the Kaiser  refused and vouchsafed tho information that any occupation of Venezuelan territory by Germany would be  only "temporary," Mr. Roosevelt, how  ever, sternly resisted any occupation  of territory whatover and pressed for  arbitration, and the manner in which  ho responded to tho test of will as between himself and the Kaiser is told  for tho first time in Mr. Hay's biography, somewhat as follows; "When  the crisis was at its most acute stage,  Dr. Holleben, the German Ambassador  was summoned to the White House  when President Roosevelt informed  him that unless Germany consented to  arbitrate, Admiral Dewey would be in  structed to proceed with his squadron  by noon ten days lator and to prevent  any taking possession of Vonezuelan  territory. Dr. Holleben protested that  his imperial majesty, once having    re*  PAOE HVB  fused to arbitrate, could not change  his mind, The President replied that  he was not arguing the question as  the time for argument had gone by,  he was simply imparting an item of  information that the German Amibassa  dor might think it desirable to transmit to Berlin. A week went by in silence and Dr. Holleben again had occasion to call un the President. He  said nothing, however, about arbitration and waB about to retire, when  Mr. Roosevelt asked him about the  matter. He stated that no message  had been received from Berlin. The  President replied that in view of the  situation Admiral Dewey would be instructed to sail two dayB hence at  noon, or one day earlier than had  originally been set. The German Ambassador was greatly disturbed and  undertook to protest. He was met by  tho information that tho President had  not yet written instructions to the  Admiral and that if the Kaiser would  agree to arbitrate, the President would  praise him for tho act and would allow him to appropriate the credit of  having initiated the arbitration. There  must be an offer to arbitrate, within  forty-eight hours, however, or Admiral  Dewey and his squadron would sail.  Within thirty-six hours Dr. Holleben  called quietly at tho White House and  informed President Roosevelt that his  imperial .majesty had agreed to arbi  trate, whereupon Mr. Roosevelt publicly complimented tne Kaiser upon being so staunch an advocate of arbitration and iiisp imperial majesty Wil-  holm II, Emperor of Germany, accepted the same."  The Scotsman of December 1st in reviewing this incident, observes that  President Wilson has chosen to fely  upon different methods in loftUug with  the Kaiser and his operations, und that  it is for the American citurns to decide whether ho has achieved :<t'Uilly  effective result b.  Loyalty.  Loyalty to our country is good, but loyalty to  our town and our neighbors is just as important,  although rarer. To send money out of town for  things that may be obtained from townsmen and  neighbors is not loyal, and does a serious injury  to our schools, churches, and other institutions  supported by local taxation or philanthropy.  Support good roads, good churches and good  schools. Spend your money at home. You will  get just as good or better value, and can see what  you buy before you pay for it, instead of after.  Read the advertisements and deal at home.  m  COPYRIGHTED  1014  ������M��MIIIII|lJtll  Printed Butter  Wrappers  According to the new  Dominion Government  regulations all farmers  who sell butter either  to the stores or privately, are required to have  it properly covered in  a wrapper on which  MUST appear in prominent letters the words  "DAIRY BUTTER."

Ofl'icials of these societies have been  approached ia their private capacity and have expressed their approval of the scheme.  The committee are of the opinion  that it would be very desirable in tho  interests of the business and [arming  community that a secretary should be  appointed who would devote every  afternoon of tho week for the work  and be available to givo information,  to business men, farmers, or new-comers on behalf of the Hoard of Trade���  to give out bulletins and library books  to members of tho Farmers' Instituto,  and to organize and prepare for the  Agricultural & Horticultural 'all fair.  We believe that a good man could bo  BOQurdd who would devote each afternoon to this work ut a salary of $-10  per month or $460 per year.  We think this amount should \hs made  up as follows:  Farmers'  institute      $150.00  Agricultural &��� Horticultural    300.00  Board of Trade      130.00  $480.00  If the wholo , of this amount could  not bo raised at present, wo suggest  that a secretary could bo obtained for  $30 a month to devote three aftor-  noon's a week to thu work.  In addition to tho secretary's salary  tho expenses of lighting, heating, telephone, etc., would havo to be met.  From inquiries mado, we gather that  the revenue from lotting tho room  would moro than cover those expenses.  In conclusion we venture to suggest  that tho membership, efficiency and  usefulness of all .those Societies would  be largely increases by having a permanent official, and would be the  means of making more ndoquato use  of the excellent building of tho llbard  of Trade.  LIONEL TAYLOR.  ,   CECIL ROOERSON.  The scheme was commented upon favorably by several members, and it was  decided to hand the mat^or over to  the new council for consideration.  Mr. F. W. Groves drew tho attention  of the Board to a matter whicn, ho  said, was becoming of greater intorest  each year as moro land Was brought  under irrigation. In several places  low-lying land was becoming waterlogged by seepage of irrigation water,  and could only be reclaimed by proper  drainage.   The powers given under the  present Bitching and Drainage Act km  to assessment of lands to cover the  cost of such work were insufficient t��  assess lands directly benefitted by such  drainage, and no levy could be made  upon lands causing the damage. Considerable areas of land at Rutland an 1  also at Summerland were being spoiled in this Way. In the case of Rutland where a movement had been  started to instal drains the owners of  lands on the higher levels fr0m which  the damage was oaused had expeoted  and wore quite willing to bo assessed  for a part oi the cost, but it had been  found impossible to do so. Ho suggested that a committee be appointed  to go into the question and report at  ,i subsequent meeting.  This was done, the committee consisting of Mr. Groves, Mr. L. K. Taylor and Mr, W. E, Adams.  Mr. JoBepli CaSorso introduced a  suggestion that tho government bo  asked to enforce some f0vm of "Poll  Tax" upon ���ll persons not paying taxes in any other way. Ho pointed out  that there were in this district nnd in  others large numbers of orientals and  other flowing populations who/' while  enjoying all the brnofits the province  had to give, contributed nothing towards its up-kcep. lie suggested that  a tax of say $B be Collected from \\\\  such and applied for purposes of education.  In this bo was supported by Mr. T.  Swol'dy and other speakers, and it  was derided to go further into the  matter al   a subsequent  meeting.  Mayor Jones reported that ho had  recently been in receipt of communications from the government asking that  a local committee ho formed in Kel-  owna to look after the provision of  employment for soldiers returning from  tho front. lie thought the Board of  Trad' was tho propor body to deal  with such a mallei', and he suggested  that a committee of five be appointed  to be known as th?

This latest addition to tho  women's organisations of the city and  district promises to be a singularly  useful one. If the members remain  faithful to'tihe ideas they.now entertain much good is certain to bo accomplished.  My gcwiping friend Mr. P. Try has  told mo (in strict confidence of course)  that, the meeting held by u few earnest souls for tho study of Emerson's  Essays, proved lo be a veritable  "toast of mason and flow of soul."  Tho optimistic spirit is a fine thing  to oarry round at any time, but in  these days of trade depression .and  wars, (lIarms , it is doubly helpful.  How refreshing it is to mcol the cheerful, smiling follow, who simply refuses  to be discouraged. A chance meeting  with him acts like a tonic, and you  go on your way hopeful and rejoicing.  There are optimists and optimists of  course, ' just as thore are "heggs and  heg'gs." Tho kind of man that assures you he never had better businoss  or found money easier, etc. I cannot  help associating in my mind with tho  common or garden ahom  untruthful person. He is a hind of pessimistic optimist (?) so to speak. The  effect of meeting him is bad, worse in  fact than the man with the chronic  grouoh.  Gentle reader, what is wanted is  moro men and women of the Mark  Taply type with his indomitable cheerfulness and flat refusal to bo downhearted. This spirit of choerfulnes is  well exemplified in the case of the old  lftdy whoso teeth had all gone but  two. Did she make herse.f and others  miserable bemoan*��? their loss? Not  sho!
