 ^ofotttOvft*^  CciTOsaMO^.)  ivdotona lUtorta  VOL. IX.   NO. 25.  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, MAY 10, 1917.-4 PAGES  School Gardens to  Help Nature Study  Portion of School Grounds is  Being Devoted to This Work  The movement to supplement  "nature study" in the public schools  by practical work in school gardens  has for aome time past been receiving the attention and approval of  the provincial department of education. Experience haa shown  that wherever the system has been  tried, and its operation has spread  not only to moat of the American  states but alao to several of the  provinces of eastern Canada, that  it is an invaluable 'aid in securing  the maximum results from the  teaching of tlie elementary principles and laws of plant life, and  in laying a groundwork for the  furthur study of intelligent agriculture.  A small beginning is being made  in Kelowna this year in the laying  out of a portion of the grounds nf  the new School. Thia little school  garden is on the south side of the  building and is under the care of  Miss Bullock's class. Each pupil  is allotted about twenty-four square  feet, and as, of course, the experimental rather than the growing of  quantities ot produce, this space is  ample for a large variety of vegetables-. In addition there are community flower beds; the work of  attending to which is shared by  the whole clasa.  The manual training classes have  undertaken to do the work of fencing the garden, and to make a gate,  while the scale drawings of the garden plots and other designs were  the work of the entrance  class.  On the north aide of the school  the classes of Miss Barnhill and  Misa Page have taken possession of  a small plot of ground and are conducting a aeriea of interesting ex-  f.      perimenta in potato growing.  The time devoted by each pupil  to this work, of course, is small,  but there is no doubt that it it will  prove of the greatest assistance in  putting life and meaning into the  theoretical lessons of the classroom.  The outdoor work in the school  garden is closely co-related to the  indoor "nature study", and is made  to illustrate auch matters as seed  . germination, the meaning and effects of soil cultivation, etc., and  the various stages of plant growth.  To thus convey an intelligent  understanding of the wonderful  functions and laws of plant development is the . surest way to  make the child a real lover of natural objects. Such a love is not  only a priceless possession and  source of infinite pleasure and  profit to everyone, but it is- a  necessity to any real progress in  modern agriculture and horticulture.  Considerable interest is being  taken- too in the planting and  beautifying of the school grounds,  and a great deal is being done  this spring by the scholars themselves.  Misa Caldwell's class and the entrance class have undertaken to  put the path, leading up to the  front entrance into shape, and  they have certainly made a good  job of, it. Borders are arranged  on each side of the path,, and for  these the government has tent a  plentiful and varied selection of  perennials. Mr. Balsillie and the  janitor, Mr. Campbell, are assisting with and directing much of  the work.  Last Saturday the "Wolf Cuba"  made an excursion to Mission  creek and collected a quantity of  ferns and other plants* During the  week Misa Elderkin's class has  built up a rockery on which to  plant these ferns, and the effect is  very handsome indeed.  The tide of battle about Fresnoy  is turning in favor of the British  again. Ejected from the village by  superior weight of German counter attacka made with fresh divisions Tuesday, Field Marshal Haig  aligned hia forcea anew early yesterday and threw them into the  fray furiously and persistently. At  the time of his early alternoon report he detailed the tecapture of a  portion of the ground taken by the  Germans and an improvement of  the Bristish position to the west ot  the town.

There  are teveral tpaciet of cutworms  found but the variegated cutworm  (Pridroma saucia) ia one of the  mott teriout that thegrowera of the  Province have to contend with  To control this pest the following formula haa been found to be  effective by many of our growers:  Paris Green I pound, Bran 50  pounds and 2 poundt of sugar, salt  or molasses and enough water to  moisten the  bran.  '  To make up the bait moisten the  bran with about two gallons of  sweetened water and mix in. the  Paris green, thit mixture should be  moist but not to   that it   will   not  crumble through the fingers  readily.  It should be applied thinly over  the Geld as soon at cutworm injury  is noticed. With fruit treea the  mixture should be scattered around  the base of the tree, but not up  against the trunk as the Pari: green  may injure the bark. With vegetable crops it m usually best to  spread the mixture thinly along the  the side of the row. As cutworms  are night feeders it is important  that the poisoned bran be applied  after sundown, so that it will be in  the most attractive condition when  the cut warms come out to feed  When scattered during the day the  mixture will city out in the hot sun  and is not neatfljr so palatable or  attractive to the -worms when they  comeiomtto feed,  The crude method which the  city posieitet of conveying tick or  injured people to and from the  boat or hospital was emphasized  again this morning when the con-,  veyance sent to take a sick lady  from the boat to hospital waa a  heavy open democrat, the same  kind of thing which takes this  meat or the mail.

The ministry is working at high  pressure to put the finishing touches on ihe machine which will  be established for compulsory  rationing, unless the country cuts  down on consumption sharply of  its own volition,  Ihe rationing of 45,000,000 people presents a tremendous and in-  tricsUf problem. The main idea  of the British plan ia decentralization, i The whole United Kingdom  has been divided into 15 areas,  each of which has been subdivided  into cities, boroughs, urban district councils and rural district  councils. These final smsll units  will be charged with distributing  bread and flour to the retidentt in  their territory thiough bread cardt  or some similar plan.  A rationing committee composed  of Baron Davenport, Kennedy  Jones and other prominent men  would decide what rations were  to be established, what division  there would be of the population  into classes and other like questions. Another advisory committee would handle the finances and  a further committee under Lord  St. David's control the millers.  A vatt army of something like  50,000 people, composed princi  pally of officials who will assume  lhe rationing work in addition to  their regular duties, will he under  the direction of Alfred Butt, who  is .well known on both sides of the  Atlantic as a theatrical magnate.  Mr. Butt has been studying the  food question for some months,  and becomes chief director under  the new scheme.  The fifteen areas would, each  have a controller, who would be  responsibje to the national rationing committee. Each major area  would also have many minor con  trailers, who would govern the  workers assigned lo distributing  food. It will take about two months  to instruct those who are being ap  pointed by the food controllers in  their duties as rationers. This  would be about the middle of July  and by then it is expected lhat the  people of tha country will have  given evidence as to whether they  are going to comply with the vol'  untary rationing - plan.

PARADES: As this is the week  during which we shall give our  annual entertainment, all the  parades will consist of final rehearsals. We shall have evening parades on Monday and Wednesday  at the club room at 7 p.m. We  hope to be able to arrange for a rehearsal of some of the items on  Thursday afternoon at the picture  theatre, where the entertainment it  to be held, with a full reheartal on  Friday afternoon, the day of the  firat Performance. We are giving  the performance twice on account  of the limited seating capacity. On  Friday evening it will commence  at 8.15 p.m. and admittion for  eveiyone including chibdren will  be 50c. The matinee on Saturday  is primarily for children, commencing at 3 p.m. and the admission for them will be 25c only on  that day; for adults it will be the  same as on Friday, 50c. We ol  course can only have the badges  won presented once, and that will  be on Friday. To take the place  of this item on Saturday we shall  put on aome funny games. A new  item to be given is an exhibition  of Semaphore signalling, during  which the squad of tcoutt on the  ttage will tignal a menage to the  audience and will give a prize to  anyone in the audience, excepting  tcoutt and ex-scouts, who can read  We are handicapped this year owing to the loss of our good old  Opera House with its scenery, but  we ask our friends to make allowances for us in this respect. The  ttage necettarilly will be rather  small, 13 by 18 ft., but we might  be worse off. Next year lei us  hope to tee a fine new opera house  n place of the old one.  We with to thank Mr. D. Lloyd-  Jones very rnu h for letting us have  the ute of a piano for our rehear-  salt at the club room, and Mr. G.  McKenzie for helping ut out with  the tinging.  We are very glad to be able to  atate that our Acting Provincial  Commissioner, the Rev. Hon. T. R.  Heneage will be on hand to present the Badgea on Friday.  At the parade on Saturday last  16 scouts competed for the "Mile  at Scouts' pace," all of whom succeeded in doing the distance within the 30 seconds leeway allowed  on the prescribed 12 minutes.  Two did the distance in 12 minutes exactly, C. Mckenzie and second Davis, and the others who  passed, and some of whom were  only a few seconds out, were P.L  Calder, P.L. Groves, and Scouts  Dykes, Thomas, Day, Mantle,  Sinkinson, Weddell, and Copeland  Provides for New  Of Surveys  Hon. John Oliver, minister of sg<  riculture, Saturday afternoon, gave  to the legislature^ interpretation  of the new land settlement bill under tne provisions of which it is  hoped to increase production and  settlement. ,  Under the scheme the checkerboard system of surveys as applied  in this province and also on the  prairies, is to be done away with  and the old Quebec system followed instead with the surveying of  crown lands for settlement in long  narrow areas, each stiip with road  and river frontage whenever possible as well as upland.  Are Yoo Planning to  Silo This Year?  As the time for sowing fodder  corn is ot hand a few remarks on  silos will be seasonable. There  ure now in the Kelowna district  twenty-two silos and they appear  to be considered a paying investment as witness the statement  by several users that another silo  will be added for a summer supply of silage as soon as possible.  The dry fall and long harsh winter and spring have been particularly hard on milk cows and it is  only the few who have had a  plentiful supply of silage who have  had really satisfactory results from  their herds.  In locally coustrue'ed silos lhe  general concensus of opinion  seems lo be that a light concrete  foundation pays better than a  wooden one; that stave silos  should be tongued and grooved  and that painting by preserving  the wood and preventing it drying  out unduly is a good investment.  The following local costs of  growing corn to fill a forty-two  ton silo may be of interest and include refilling after settling i���  Preparing 2�� acres land and  seeding.  $8.50  Seed at 7c per lb     5.35  Horse Cultivation  13,25  * Hand Cultivation  25.98  Cutting Crop    9.00  Hauling, horse labor   21.50  Hauling & Filling Labor.. 19.40  Filling Machine fit Power   8,00  $110.98  Cost of corn silage $2.65 per  ton.    Team and teamster charged  $5 per day.     Hand labor charged  20c per hour.  The Farmers' Institute has on  hand a most complete bulletin on  tilo construction.  * The hand cultivation cost was excessive owing to the land being dirty and the  weeds getting ahead by reason ol labour  shortage. The crop was grown on heavy  bottom land with much alkali in places.  No irrigation was necessary. -   -  The gross receipts ol the "War  Dance" and carnival organised by B.

One effect of the persistence of  the snow upon the hills has been  to drive the deei down very low  seeking the new grass. From stories we hear they are wonderfully  tame, too. Some boys up Bear  creek were actually trying a few  daya ago to round up a bunch  cowboy fashion.  We have been requested to  compliment the council thia week  upon the beautiful border of hardy (very) perennials along the  edge of the sidewalk on the north  side of main street. It is not clear  whether the council can claim any  credit or not, but certainly for the  last few mornings the brilliant  golden band of spring's early messengers haa had a highly decora  live effect.  Mr. Dan McMillan and a number of the users of irrigation water  on the north side of Bernard Ave.  have been busy during the week  clearing out the ditches and re  pairing the culverts and flumes  where necessary to get the old system which has practically fallen  into disuse for some years, working  again.  The sum of $60 was sent to the  Prisoners of War department of  the Red Cross at Vancouver last  month as a result of Wednesday  and Saturday afternoon teas being  held by various ladies in the store  next the Furniture Co., and a whist  drive held for the same purpose,  The Misses Hubbard kindly undertook to serve tea yesterday, raising  the sum of $9.30.  The Max Jenkins Co., who have  an extensive logging contract for  the Kelowna Sawmill, are trying  the experement of hauling their  logs out from Bear Creek by  means of a big gasoline tractor,  The company have about a couple  of millions of feet of logs on the  skids ready for hauling to the lake.  Although snow has been plentiful  higher in the hills, this last wintei  sleighing was none two good lower  down, and this proved a great  hindrance to loggers generally.  G. W. CUNNINGHAM  .

The Kelowna Tennis Club has  made arrangements to commence  the season next Thursday afternoon, May 17th. Tea will be served by the ladies during the afternoon.

In consequence Mr. and Mrs. Pedlar and Mr. and Mrs. McClure are  leaving this week for Toronto, to  the regret of many friends. Both  Mr. and Mra. Pedlar (nee Miss  Francis Pearson), and especially  the latter, heve beer, verv closely  identified with the musical life of  the city for several years past, and  in that capacity in particular they  will be very much missed.

Printed Butter  Wrappers  According to the new  Dominion Government  regulations all farmers  who sell butter either  to the1 stores or private*  ly, are required to have  it properly covered in  a wrapper on which  MUST appear in prominent letters the wo/ds  "DAIRY BUTTER."  The tact is also emphasized that all butter  in such paclcagea 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 is 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:  1 nflPAPER * PRINTING  I \J\J        INCLUDED  200   ,,'    ���  500   ,,    ���  iooo ;,   ,,  $1.'50  2.00  3.15  4.50  These prices include Both the  Paper, which is the best obtainable  for the purpose, and the Printing  of same.    Please note this.  Owing to the extraordinary rise in the price of butter  parchment (which has gone up over 100 per cent) we  have been reluctantly obliged to raise our prices slightly.  Nearly all this paper was previously manufactured in Belgium, and needless to say this supply has been entirely  cut off. Unfortunately there is no guarantee against further increases, indeed, they are more than likely.

The aversion whioh people in this  country usually manifest when attempts nre made to encourage the consumption of things known domwtiual-  ly but not popular as foods has unt,  beon experienced in California with  whale meal.
