NO. 40  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, AUGUST 22, 1918.-4 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  Substantial Increases  For City Engineers  Power-House Staff Ask For  Union Rates  That the city is not paying its  engineering staff at the power  houae anything like the scale of  wages laid down by the Steam  Operators' and Engineers' Union  which regulates the pay in this part  of the country was the contention  made at last Monday's council  meeting. Aid. Duggan, chairman  of the committee, reported 'that he  had a request from the staff for a  substantial raise which would place  them more in line with the regular  scale. The committee had discussed the matter with the staff and  their contention, it seemed, was  quite correct. If the raise were not  granted the members of the staff  would moat likely seek more remunerative situations elsewhere,  and the city would have to offer  the union wage in order to secure  men to fill theii places. 1 he chief  engineer had been getting $120  per month, the first assistant engineer, $120, and the second assistant  engineer, $ 115.  After considerable discussion a  resolution was passed raising these  salaries to $175, $145 and $140  respectively.  The watering trough installed  on the main street has proved so  useful an institution that some of  the farmera are anxious to have  another placed in a different location.  It has been pointed out that  many of the teams hauling fruit  turned off the main'street before  reaching the centre of the city, and  to reach the present trough involved a much longer journey.I A  letter was read Monday from the  Rutland United Farmera asking  that a trough be installed at the  eastern extremity of Bernard Ave.  where moat teams have to pass.  The matter was promised consid  eration, but not much hope was  entertained of being able to pro  vide a trough there, owing to the  absence of any kind of drainage  facilities to carry off the surplus  water.  In accordance with the provision  of the new Pound By-law which  has just been passed, Archie John-  son was appointed pound-keeper,  and his premises on Lawrence  avenue and Water street the, city  pound.  Notes from th* Prairie Fruit  Markets Bulletin  By Commissioner J. A. Grant, Calgary.  Manitoba seems to have a good  crop of potatoes They are, so far  as we know, undamaged by frost,  and are offering at $30 per ton  shipping point, Armstrong is quoting B. C. potatoes at $35 per ton  f.o.b. shipping point.  We notice a general tendency on  the part of B. C. shippers to overload their mixed .cars. This may  be according to instructions, but  unless loads are reduced in height  and more ventilation space allowed, much wastage will result.  B. C. shouldjdo a little advertis  ing thia year, says the Prairie Markets Commissioner. Housewives  on the prairies'are holding off from  buying preserving fruit, expecting  to buy at former prices. The season will pass and little demand will  be made, if we do not conduct a  campaign explaining the situation  to them. Wholesale and retail  men know why the fruit must be  higher than usual this year, but the  consumer should be informed also  The aame condition exists in regard  to apples. The public need to be  educated to the changed conditions  and prices.  Police Round Up  Many Offenders  Fines-inflicted For Speeding,  Driving Without Lights, &c.  It has been patent to every one  for some time past that in this  district the laws regulating automobile traffic have been persistently disregarded. Numerous complaints have been made to the  council and to the police regarding this matter and prophesying a |  disastrous accident if things were  not altered Usually the outcome  of these complaints has been the  issuing of a warning, which has at  best only had a very fleeting effect.  Pressure haB been brought upon  the police lately lo take more  severe measures to stop the abuse,  with the result that during the past  few daya a general round-up of  offenders has been made.  It is perhaps only fair to state  that the list ol cases mentioned  here does nol include some of the  worst offenders who do not hap.  pen to have been caught, and possibly does include several who  generally are perfectly law-abiding  but had the misfortune to be  "pinched " during their temporary  departure from rectitude. Such is  the fortune of law as well as war,  and they may have the consolation that they are providing an  example and a warning to others.  The round-up commenced last  Tuesday when Mr. H. Chesbro  was apprehended .for travelling at  a rate over ten miles per hour on  his motor cycle. He had to pay  $5 and costs. On Thursday Nick  Avender drove his car on the  wrong side of the road and for  this contributed $2.50 and coats  to the city treasury.  On Saturday the real effort was  made and six cases were laid be-  the magistrate. Eric Dart admitted  travelling ever ten miles'TJerhrttir,  and handed in $5 and costs. The  costs in each case it might be mentioned, amounted to $2.50. H.  Slater drove his car with only one  headlight and no rear light, and  was mulcted in a like sum. W. J.  Austin and C. Casorso had no  lights at all and they also paid a  similar fine, as did Manlv Byrns  for having no rear light.  W. Whenham, a visitor who has  motored from Winnipeg to Vancouver, and then to Kelowna, was  found travelling without lights and  let off with a caution ; but alas I  the caution had no effect for a day  or two after he was in the same  predicament, without lights, and  allowing a boy under fifteen years  of age to drive the car. He was  fined $10 and costs.  H. J. Mills was on Sunday guilty  of a more serious offence. He  collided on Pendozi street with  another car doing considerable  damage and was afterwards apprehended for driving a car while  under the influence of liquor. He  was fined $50 and coats or two  months.  It is understood that the minions  of the law intend to continue the  "offensive drive" until auto users  come to realize the necessity (or  staying within the law.  Rain Interferes With Kelowna's  Twelfth Annual Regatta  Interesting and Varied Programme is Carried Out During  Intervals Between Showers  Notwithstanding manv disadvantages and- drawbacks due to  the'fitful state of the weather, Kelowna's twelfth annual Regatta was  successfully can ied out last Thursday in the presence of one ol the  largest gatherings for several years  past. The weather had been wet  tor several days before, and when  Thursday morning saw the rain  still pouring down the hearts of the  committee were sad. The sky  cleared later, however, permitting  the programme to be proceeded  with.  The morning was devoted to  field sports in charge of Mr. E. C.  Weddell, the Scouts figuring largely in the events. Following the  racing a lacrosse match was held  between Kelowna and Vernon. It  was a good game and well played,  Kelowna winning by 7 to 5.  .  In the afternoon the crowd in the  grand stand and aquatic pavilion,  and on the promenade had grown  to quite a satisfactory size, and  included many strangers and visit  from outside points. Some twenty  automobiles were down from Vernon alone, and nany come from  the south. The weather alternated  between brilliant sunshine and  drenching showers, though the latter did not prevent the programme  from being carried out.  Had the entries for the different  events been a little more plentiful,  things might have been better perhaps, but on the whole the affair  went off very well. Certainlv the  directors and officials deserve  every credit for organizing so successful a regatta with nearly all o.iu,  young men away. Many ofthe  younger bovs are beginning to exhibit a surprising degree of clever-  ness in the wafer sports, and it  will not be long before they will  be able to furnish, all the entries  needed.  Asusual the war canoe races were  the centre of interest.   Two men's  teams had been arranged,one representing the Fire Brigade, captained by Max Jenkins and the other a  team assembled by W.H.Crawford  under the name of the Kelowna  Athletic Association. Considering  the length of tin e they had had for  practice the latter put up a good  fight against the more seasoned  Fire Brigade crew. The ladies had  two crews competing, and they  furnished a good race. The Athletic Association and the Fire Brigade also had representative crews  in the rowing fours. The Kelowna  City band were in attendance and  enlivened the proceedings with  music at intervals.  The regatta committee consisted  of Mr. W. Crawford (chairman),  St. G.P.Baldwin, J. F. Burne, D.  W. Crowley, N. E. DeHart, J. B.  Knowles. W. J. Mantle, G. A.  Meikle, W. C. Renfrew and E. C.  Weddell. The starters were Messrs.  Drury Pryce, H. C. Si* Collett and  W. C. Renfrew, and the judges,  Messrs. P. DuMoulin, W. D. v'.'al-  ker; G. F. B. James, Jas. Harvey jr.,  F. M. Buckland, J. W. Jones and  C. Weddell, while Mr. Jas. Harvey  sr. acted as umpire. To the secretary Mr. H. G. M. Wilson, is of  course , attributable most of the  credit for the success of the. arrangements.  Following the afternoon programme the prizes were distributed by Mrs. J. W. Jones.  In the evening a baseball match  was held in which the Kelowna  team beat a team composed of  Vemon and Kelowna boys by a  score of 5 to 2.  At 9 p.m. dancing commenced  in the aquatic pavilion, and those  who did not attend this function  took pert in the "confetti carnival"  keeping up the revels until a late  hour.  The ladies (f the Prisoners of  War committee provided  refresh-  rOaailnasS oa Rue 4.1  Miss Little, who has been staying in town some time for the  benefit of her health, left yesterday  on her return to Calgary.  Mr. and Mrs. McCubbin left  yesterday for Vancouver where  they intend to' make their residence for the present.  Mrs, L. V. Rogers and Miss  Pughe started, yesterday for the  coast 'whence they will take a trip  north to Skagway, Alaska.  Mr. A. L. Cross left yesterday on  a business visit to Vancouver.  Mrs. Frank Hill went- up to  Sicamous yesterday accompanying  Mrs. Crist, her guest of the past  few weeks, who ia returning to  Calgary. 4  On the night of the Regatta someone stole a new tire (rom Mr.  Groves' car as it was standing near  the park. The thief must have  been around somewhere between  nine and ten o'clock. The tire  had never been used and was  valued at $27.  The Prisoners of War committee  wish to thank the following for the  help given them on Regatta day  Casorso Bros., ham ; Mr. L. Taylor  peaches ; T. Taylor, poles for tent  Boy Scouts, tent; and all those who  so generously gave cjonations towards ice cream, cakes, etc.  District Horticulturist,  Ben Hoy, Married  A more than usually interesting  wedding took place yesterday at  the Knox Church when Mr. Ben-  jamen Hoy, well-known throughout  the Okanagan as the district representative of the provincial horticultural department, was united in  marriage to Miss Ruby Margaret  Elliott, the second daughter of Mr.  and Mrs S. T. Eljiott, of Rutland.  The ceremony, which was in  charge of the Rev. E. D. Braden,  took place at. 12 noon in the  presence of a large gathering of  friends of both parties. The church  was profusely decorated with flowers by friends.  The bride, who was given away  by her father, was attended by her  sister, Miss Ray Elliott, as bridesmaid, a younger sister, Lillian and  little Ella Cameron making a pret-  tv pair of flower girls. Miss Delia  Perry and Miss Bay DeHart acted  as ushers.  The groom was attended by Mr.  S. Middleton, provincial horticulturist.  Mr. H. T*. Boyd presided at the  organ, rendering the 'Bridal March,  from Lohengrin aa the bride entered the church. During the  signing of the register Mrs. E. D.  Braden sang the appropriate solo  "Until."  The party then motored out to  Rutland where a reception was  held and luncheon served to about  fifty guests.  The couple left by the afternoon  boat for the coast where a short  honeymoon will be spent. Shortly  after their return Mr. and Mrs. Hoy  will take up residence in Vernon.  Ten conscientious objectors who  were tried by court marshal were  sentenced to life imprisonment,  but this sentence was commuted  by the Department at Ottawa to a  sentence of ten years each.  Superintendent T. C. Macnabb  and Mrs. Macnabb of Revelstoke,  accompanied by Mr, and Mrs. C.  W. Harrison of Brandon, Man., are  visitors in Kelowna, the guests of  Mr. and Mrs. C. L Lynch.  Plan Big Northern Land  Settlement Scheme  Hon. E. D. Barrow, minister of  agriculture, outlined in an interview  the project in hand to open immediately for settlement an area of  50,000 acres ot new land* in thi  Bulkley and Nechaco valleys, along  the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway,  in the northern interior. Mr. Ba: row  haa recently returned from the  North after a journey by horseback  over most of the two tracts upon  which the government proposes to  initiate its land-settlement policy  Today engineers are on the ground  laying out concessions and side-  roads, school and church reserves,  and it ia expected that the lands  will be thrown open on or about  Nov. I of this year.  Kelowna Men Figure  In Latest Casualties  Major Pyman Dies of Wounds  Six Others Wounded  After a little interval of rest the  Canadians (rom this province have  again been figuring in some of the  heavy fighting on the western and as a consequence the  casualty lists are including some  local names. This week several  Kelowna homes have been saddened by telegrams announcing  more or less serious wounds, and  in one case an old resident o.f th��  district, Major C. K. L. Pyman, had  met hia death after a most distinguished career.  At the outbreak of the war the  deceased officer was a lieutenant  in lhe B.C. Horse and went into  camp at once in anticipation of  going over with that regiment.  Some difficulty arose, it will be  remembered, about going as a  cavalry unit, and Lieul. Pyman, getting impatient, volunteered with an  infantry battalion, and went into  training at Valcartier. He was  one of the first contingent, the little  army of thirty odd thousand which j  Canada sent over inside of three  months from the declaration of  war. Lieut. Pyman was a typical  example of the dashing British  fighting man, and aoon began to  earn promotion for his brilliant  work, reaching the rank of Major  some months ago. Previous to the  wounds which caused his death he  had been wounded twice, but was  back again in the fight as soon as  he was fit. A cablegram from his  brother a few days ago announced  briefly that he had died of wounds  on Aug. I Oth.  Major Pyman came to Kelowna  from the old country about fifteen  vears ago and was first with Mr.  Barlee on the Vernon road. Later  heTacquTfed land of his own and  two ranches, one on the side of  Black Mountain and the other at  Benvoulin, are in his name. He  was an enthusiastic sportsman and  as a polo player was one of the  mainstays of the local team a few  years ago.  Roy Haug, son of Mr. W. Haug,  is amongst the list of wounded  with gunshot injury in the right  arm. He is in hospital in Bristol  England. Ewen McLennan is reported as stiff -ring from a gunshot  wound in the leg. and Tom Akeroyd a wound in the head. Clarence Thompson has a gunshot  wound in the leg and is, besides,  reported dangerously ill. J. J.  Davis a son-in-law of C. Nicol, is  also reported as wounded, having  received a gunshot wound in the  arm Jack Kincaid has also been  admitted to hospital suffering from  a gunshot wound in the back.  Record Grain Crop in  England  The baseball and lacrosse leans  are both playing at Vernon on  Labor Day, Sept. 2nd.  There are now 215,000 people  of Canada employed in the manufacture of munitions. * Of these  five thousand are women.  The Dominion government is  about to undertake the work of  testing tha gases of all the Alherta  fields with a view to ascertaining  the gasoline contents in each.  Amedee Picard was shot and  killed by One of the militrry police  at Wjnslow, near Sherbrooke, Qu ,  white attempting to evi de arrest.  During the scuffle his brother escaped and is hiding in the woods.  Canada's contribution to the  Red Cross is the greatest per capita  in the world. The total contribution is twelve million dollars in  cash, and fifteen million In supplies. Great Britain with five times  the population of Canada only  made twice as large a contribution  in cash and her contribution of  supplies was not twice what ours  was.  England's grain crop this year  will be the biggest since 1866, Sir  Charles Fielding, director-general  ot food production, informed the  Daily Mail. Several thousand soldiers are working on farms and  other harvesters include school  boys, undergraduates, boy scouts,  village and college women and  girls of the land army, Belgian  and Serbian refugees and German  prisoners. More than 2,400,000  acres of new land have been  ploughed up since 1916.  o  A census just completed in Petrograd shows that the population  of that city is now 1,41 7,000. This  is a million less than it was eighteen months ago.  Rice riots have caused police in  Tokvo to exercise the utmost  vigilance, although the city is comparatively free from disturbance,  The rioters are charging that the  farmers are responsible for the rice  shortage to a great extent, declaring that 120.000,000 bushels ot  grain are hoarded by the producers.  There is much indignation in  the ranks of the 'coast letter carriers and postal clerka over the  decision of the subcommittee of  the Privv Council in the matter of  increased salaries, Several letter-  carriers state that it looks like another strike.  Automobile Club  Placing Sign Ms  Approve Enforcement of the  Traffic Regulations  At a meeting of the directors of  the Automobile and Good Roads  Association held last week, several  matters of importance to the  travelling public were discussed  and action decided upon.  The special committee on sign- .  posts reported that several posts  were ready and that these would  be placed in position during the  following week. The posts are  black and yellow, the official colors  of the Association, and will be  placed at points where important  cross roads intersect the main  through highway. Wherever possible the mileage to Kelowna ia  given on the posts. This will be  a great convenience to tourists and  will bring the Kelowna district in  ine with other progressive communities whieh have their main  roads marked.  The increasing number of accidents and near-accidents led to  a lengthy discussion on the somewhat general lack of observance of  of the rules of the road. It was  pointed out that in this, autoists  and cyclists are not the only offenders but that many drivers of horse  vehicles frequently take the inside  turn at corners, irrespective of the  direction they are going.  In this regard the directors were  pleased to learn that the City  Council had instructed the Chief of  Police to be on the lookout for such  offenders, and also (or speed-  fiends who are becoming so numerous as to be a general menace to  the public. The secretary was  authorized to write to the council  expressing the approval of the  Association and assuring them that  the Association would stand behind  them in enforcing road regulations.  Knowing that the Provincial  Statutes fixes the speed limit in  cities at ten miles per hour, the  directors decided to erect al thc  four main points ot entrance to the  city, notices that the speed limit is  only ten miles per hour for all  vehicles, within the city limits.  The directors were unanimously  of the opinion that excessive speeding and reckless turning of corners  is not confined to, city limits, and  realizing that one of the aims of  the Association is to protect the  travelling public would like to advise motorists and cyclists that there  is a speed limit even in the country.  The law provides, it was pointed  out, that in passing other vehicles  the speed should not exceed fifteen  miles per hour. Instead of observing this regulation, observation  shows that many in meeting or  passing another vehicle, turn on  the juice arid go by at a speed'  dangerous to all concerned.  Before the meeting adjourned  the directors spilled their venom  on those would-be benefactors who  when through with irrigation water  turn it loose on the public highway,  in some cases providing well plowed furrows across the road. This,  it is well known, is contiarv to the  law of the land, but like many  other things it seems tb be "a custom  more honored in the breach than  in the observance." However tbe  secretary waa instructed to write  to the Public Works Department,  pointing out this wanton destruction of public property which becomes a menace to, human life  and urging the Department to take  immediate steps to see that proper  means of conveying water across  the public highway are installed.  Emperor Karl has refused to send  Austrian troops to the western  front, according to a rumor current  in Vienna, despatchea declrred  Monday.  German dead and prisoners since  tbe beginning of the war are roughly estimated at not very far short  of three million.  The Germana when they started  their last offensive operation, were  prepared for a siege of Paris (rom  a range of 25 miles. A number  of 60-foot guns, firing shells weighing three-quarters of a ton each,  were ready on railroad trucks to  be pushed forward behind the  advancing armies.

Some Swimming Facts  Worth Knowing  Here are a few simple facts about  swimming, says a writer in "What  to Do," which may some day save  your life. You can be quite as  safe in the water aa on the land, if  you will only keep in mind these  plain facts:  The human body weigha a pound  in the water, and a single chair will  carry two grown persons���that is,  it will keep their heads above  water, which is all that ia necessary  when it is a question of life or death.  One finger placed upon a stool or  chair, or a amall box or board, will  keep the head above water, while  the two feet and the other hand  may be used as paddlea to prope!  the body towards shore. It is not  necessary to know how to swim in  in order to keep from drowning.  A little experience of the buoyant  power of the water, and faith in it,  is all that ia required. In nine  cases out of ten, the knowledge  that what will support a pound  weight is all that is needed to keep  one's head above v/ater will serve  bet'er in emergencies than the  greatest expertness as a swimmer,  when this fact is overlooked.  A person unfamiliar with the  buoyant power of water will naturally try to climb to the top of any  floating object when trying to save  himself from di owning. If it is  large enough, this is all right; but  usually it is not large enough, and  several struggling people are often  drowned in the desperate acramble  t j climb on top of a piece of wreck  age cr other floating object, not  half large enough to keep them all  entirely above water. This frequently happens when pleasure boats  capsize. Everyone tries to get on  top of the overturned or half-filled  boat, and all are drowned in the  struggle except those whom the  wrecked craft will bear up. If they  simply would trust to the water to  sustain ninety-nine hundredths of  the weight of their bodies and the  disabled boat the other hundredth,  they might be saved.  An overturned or water-filled  boat will sustain more people in  this way than it will carry when  right side up or in sailing condition.  It will keep the heada ot as many  people above water as can get their  hands on the gunwale.

Aug. 20, 1918  As a full account of the sports  held on regatta day will appear  elsewhere in the paper, all _ we  need say here is that the special  scout prize awarded to the scout  winning the greatest number of  points at all the events was won  by Patrr'-Leader Calder. From  our ranks Scout E. Small followed  him, and as a matter of fact P.-L.  Calder won the greatest number  of points against all competitors  with Scout Warren Gayton, of  Summerland, a very close second.  The former obtained I I points  Irom the 100 yards open miming,  the three-legged race, the relay  race, the rowing fours, war canoe  and lacrosse match. The latter  obtained 10 points from the running broad jump under 16 and  open, the running hop, step and  jump under 15 and open, and  throwing the basebail.  There was considerable discussion as to whether points should  be given in this competition in  those evenls in which competitors  were prohibited from entering by  reason of age, but as the final  result has not been affected it has  made no difference. We won the  relay race but it is only fair to add  lhat it was through a fluke, the  Summerland runner having dropped the stick he was carrying.  Scout Small's points were all obtained in the water sports, the  boys' swimming and diving and  lhe open high and spring-board  diving.  We were very glad to have several of our brother scouts from  Summerland as our guests tor the  day, but we are afraid that being  so bus) we did not make ideal  hosts. We were sorry that Penticton was unable to send any  competitors but we can also quite  appreciate how difficult it is to get  away during these busy tirnes  Our former patrol-leader Henry  Crowley paid his home a flying  visit.on regatta day, but had to  leave again the same, evening for  Salmon Arm where he is now stationed. Our former patrol-leader  Anthony DuMoulin also left us on  Saturday last for the RM.C, Kingston, the entrance exams, to which  he waa successful in passing a  short time ago.  We trust that there will be some  competition for the best model  bridge to be shown at the fall fair.  The bridge will also be accepted  as part of the test for the pioneer  badge. We are extremely sorry  to see the summ-r slipping away  and no applicants for the Swimmers Badge. It is only pure laziness which prevents practically any  scout in the troop from holding  this badge, and we trust the next  time we have to refer to it, it will  be to announce that the required  tests have been passed by several  present non-holders.  We hope to get out all accounts  at a very early date and expect to  have them all paid before we commence our fall work. As everyone  has been working nearly all summer there is no reason why they  should not be.  We quote the following from the  June Gazette : "' German Tribute  to the Scout Movement.' All the  Polish Boy Scout organizations  have been dissolved by the German military authorities. That is  the announcement in the Times of  May 23rd. It is vary gratifying to  feel that the Germans recognize  that the movement is contrary lo  iheir notions of boy training and  is likely to exert a powerful influence in the better direction."

To the Editor of  The Kelrnrvna Record.  Deir Sir, -Mav 1 be permitted a  spac< in your paper in which to  voice my seti'imenla as a citizen  of Kcluwna wilh leiyard lo the  recent visit of the Hon. E. D. Barrow, Minisier n( Agriculture.  1 am glad youi paper mentioned  s visit, otherwise I fear many of  us would have been quit ��� unawaie  of it. Now as the hon. gentleman  was touring round the valley with  the express object of getting acquainted with the work and the  prospects for future development  in this wonderful country as a  practical farmer, he must see things  for himself and also meet those  who have the work of organizing  in hand, if he is going to be able  to size up the conditions faithfully  and clearly. As a matter of fait,  he rushed through here, and either  gave Kelowna no chance, or was  himse f given no chance, I don't  know which. Being only a woman  1 do not quite understand the inner working of these things, but 1  do know that neither our respected  member, Mr. J. W. Jones, our  Board ol Trade, or our principal  citizens and farmera in the vicinity  of Kelowna, had no chance io  meet him, and I for one wish to  say that I do not think Kelowna  has been treated with due consideration. I see by the paper also  that the Coldstream Ranch has  been offered to the government as  a likely place for our returning  soldiers.  Now, as a ratepayer, and a voter  I should like to ask a question���I  believe I am within my rights���If  the government purchases the  Coldstream Ranch at $900,000.  is it their intention to give it to the  returned soldiers free of cost, or  have they to pay for it> because  in that case the more the government pays foi the land the more,  of course, the soldiers will have to  pay. Then why take up such an  expensive proposition ? The acreage is comparatively small of real  good orchard land and I have  heard that many of the trees are  dying from natural causes, which  is a peculiarity of some parts of  this valley, and practical people  say you cannot replant for three  years on such ground, or the same  thing will happen again. Also  there are many expensive buildings which are not at all suitable  for the use of the soldiers, but will  doubtless be included  in  the pur-  Benvoulin Notes  Mr. and Mra. E.

The motor bus and tram system  of London, ling., has been para  lized as the result of the conduc  tors' strike of 30,000 women of  the union. Fifteen thousand workers are striking sympathetically.  The women want a bonus of five  shillings weekly the same as was  granted the men.  The second fall fair day will be  Hospital Tag Day.  chase price. Again I ask, why  lake up such an expensive proposition, when right here between  Kelowna and Penticton lie beautiful stretches of bountiful land  nearly every foot of which is suitable for growing the choicest fruit,  and which can be purchased and  put in shape for much less money.  The Coldstream is s beautiful Utile  spot I know, but I should not judge  it to be the most healthy or suitable place for men with shattered  nerves, it is too low and too damp.  What about the beautiful Indian  reserves right at our own doors,  lying useless ? If all- the Indians  in the valley were placed upon  one thev would have all they could  manage. Pay them for what we  take. I don't advocate robbing  the Indians but foolish sentiment  must not blind us to the fact that  our boys have fought for the Indians as well as for us, and those  of them that have fought side by  side with our men will surely share  whatever good thing is given to  them, so I feel they also should be  willing to help in this matter and  not play dog in the manger.  Personally I feel that nothing is  too good or too much to do for  these men who have risked all and  suffered so much to save our country and our homes and our honour  from a cruel ambitious foe who,  had he won, would have speedily  stripped us of everything without  a question of right or wrong.  Lastly, let us all remember in  this question of providing for the  returned soldiers, we shall haye to  deal with many who will be physical wrecks of humanity ; yea, and  many of them moral wrecks, too,  and God knows we shall have  need of patience and infinite love,  pity and wisdom. Many of them  have been to hell, and you can't  go to the edge of the bottomless  pit and not smell oi brimstone;  and many have looked into the  face of God and their manhood  has been exalted, purified and ennobled. Such is the effect of war.  Oh, fellow, citizens of Kelowna :  Is there a man among you, big  enough, brave enough, who has  no axe to grind, no strings of personal interest to pull ? Then in  God's name come forward and  fight for the rights of our boys, for  never in the world's history was  there a better chance to play the  man's part���or act the shirker's.  ���From a Mother of One of Then.

The fact is also emphasized that all butter  in such packagea must  be ofthe full net weight  of sixteen ounces, and  in default of same a  fine of from $10 to $30  for each offence is imposed.

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.
