'  During the previous day an archway  of evctgwoni was erected at the en-'  trance of the opera house dotted-with  the brilliant red "bonfci" Sower.  Aeroas the top was a banner  bearing the tingle word "Bauxei"  the cheering exclamation by which the  Jape express their pleasure aad approval. On the right of the archway.  was draped the national Bag ol  Japan, white with a -single red  disc, representing the rising * sun.  On the' left wae the Union  Jaok, an association which conveyed a  delicate tribute to the Empire in which  they lived and to the alliance of that  Empire with their own oountry. On  the front of the stage was a beautiful  display ol chrysanthemums, the national flower.  Promptly at 9 o'clock the meeting  aaaernhhld in the body of the opera  house, and toon, under the leadership  of K. Iwashita, a gentleman prominent amongst his oountrymen hen, the  ceremony, which was of a djatiaotly  religious and impressive nature, commenced. On the platform baaidet the  chairman was Hit Worship, the Mayor  and City Clerk, Mr. G. B. Dunn with  Messrs. F. H. E. DeHart, J. Leataley  and H. Baffle.  Mr. Iwashita hi his opening address  briefly announced the objects of the  gatherings to commemorate the coronation of their Emperor and to do  homage to a ruler who was loved and  respected by all. He also referred I to  the presence of the Mayor of the city  who was then in his official capacity,  thus conferring a very great honor  upon their community. He spoke of  the kindly feeling which existed between the two nations, a sympathy  which he hoped would increase.  This was followed by the singing of  the "Kimigayp" the Japanese national  anthem, after which solemnly and reverently the chairman approached a  heavily draped and curtained altar to  the' rear of the stage, on which was  placed-*, cabinet containing an image  of Hit Imperial" Majesty. . The doors  of the cabinet war* thrown open and  all rose to their fast aad stood with  bowed head during the reading of an  Imperial edict.

' Ilia national anthem was isung again  after which Mayor Joan writ asked to  speak to the gathering.  Hit   Worship expressed hit pleasure  at being   present upon such a unique  oMaawa and   congratulated the    assembly upon the    unanimous loyalty  manifested      on    the    occasion.   of  the coronation   of   the.   Emperor Yo-  sMhlto.    He referred to the    wonderful progress made by Japan daring the  past half century having risen from  position of comparative obscurity  rank amongst the foremost powers  the world.    The British Empire    w  proud to recognise Japan at its airy,  and he hoped' that (he future    would  utifl further strengthen the bonds of ays*  pathy and brotherly sentiment   which  united them.

The preacher was  the Rev. C. H. Daly oi Stunmer.and.  He gave a practical 'and interesting  talk on the church 'and ita duties and  responsibilities and his address was  greatly appreciated. The combined  Methodist and Presbyterian choirs had  charge of the music and thtjr .anthems  and duets lent an additional attractiveness to the service.  ���.. vi '  On Monday evening last one of the  finest concerts ever given in Rutland���  and that is saying a good deal���took  place in connection with the anniversary services of the Presbyterian  church.

Tuesday evening in the school house,  there being a fair attendance of members on hand.  ��     #  Last Friday evening the Sth, was  the occasion of rather unusua, proceedings, in this "inoffensive" part of  the valley���for th* younger element of  the town (ever eager to give vent to  their pent-up enthusiasm) saw in Guy  Fawke's Day an opportunity for a  jollification, and they govemid themselves accordingly. .Ml afternoon the  boys worked faithfully building an immense bonfire on the flat, and in the  ovrn'ng the youth of the settlement  with a sprinkling of adults assembled  to witness the burning thereof. Firecrackers and dynamite (not German  bombs as some unsuspecting people  thought) enlivened the evening, and  after ��� few hour's merriment the revellers departed homewards well pleased  with their impromptu entertainment.  It .is my intention in this - article to form methods of prevention or   cure  place before the fruit growers of the  Kelowna district, the need of inor0 cooperation amonir themselves, for the  better control of orchard diseases and  pests and also the need of more and  better spraying in the future.  There are two reasons for this need  of cooperation, the first is, that as the  orchards become older, the controling  qf insect pests and fungus diseasea becomes more difficult an1 it U necessary  to have uniform work don_��� along the  linos of control by all the growers, or  the value oi the work ,don0 by individuals is greatly decreased if not lost  altogether.. For as the air currents  and insects (being the heaviest carriers of disease in the orchard) respect  neither fence line nor boundary, it is  easily seen that one neglected orchard  in a community will act as a eouroe  of infection for all the surrounding orchards. If the grower will look back  for a minute and think of the diseases  and peats that have caused us a direct  financial lots' during the past two  yean and see if not all of them are a  community problem as well as an individual one. Do not think for a minute that individual spraying is not ol  value for it is of great value, but owing to the fact that there is such a  difference in the materials used and the  time of using them by the different  growers, that much of, the value of the  work that done is,lost. This loss is  often caused by. the grower's nearest  neighbor, who with the best of iu-ten  lions puts off his spraying until it is  too late and thus not only loses the  value of the work that, he has done  for hie own place, but unknowingly  has contaminated his neighbor's place.  It is to- avoid such mistakes as thia,  that I think if the growers would take  up the idea of organising into soma  kind of a fruit protective league, so  that they could have a meeting when  necessary, and call in an expert on the  subject to be diseuttcd,  so tone unl  may be decided on and followed by alt  the growers in that community. Also  the combined experience of all the  growere, as to the results obtained with  the methods used, would soon prove  which was the beet method to use in  that locality, and in that way, would  tend to set some standard to the different spray mixtures that the growers an compelled to use, if they an  to be successful fruit-growers. Never  spray, never pay, is very true of fruit  growing.  Another valuable feature of some  form of an organization would be in  case of an outbreak of some new pest  or disease where quick action wae  needed from all the growers, or in caw  of an epidemic of some of the diseases  that we have already. A good illustration of thia point might be in the  case of a sudden outbreak of fire-  blight in the very active form that  it sometimes tukes, especially whan the  weather conditions are favorable; or  in the 'can of another season like the  one just past, when Black Apple Scab  caused such a heavy loss to some.  parts of the valley.  In the state of Washington, it is duo  to the existence of the fruit protective  leagues among the growers that they  have ban able to control and in some  cases almost eradicate the fire-blight  from their orchards. All fruit  en 'will realize the value of having  every grower in his community cut  out all the blight in his orchard, the  same time as hie neighbor does, thus  doing away with the orchard to  chard infection that is.so deadly at  blossoming time  I would suggest that the grower*  think over some form of organisation,  whereby we will get better results  from the work that we put on our orchard! and thus cheapen the cost of  producing .our fruit.

Somewhere in Belgium.���We have  been over hero about three weeks now,  and have had two spells in the tint  linn, The men are simply splendid;  they all behave as if they wen on  parade, with shells, bombs, grenades,  and hundreds of bullets flying around.  The wont part of the whole thing is  the condition of the trenches. One  has to wade through mud and filth  up to one's knees in many- plans and  the stench is awful, and aa no one is  allowed even to take hie boots off for  the five or six days we an kept in  the first line trenches it comes a bit  hard to fight colds off���in fact few of  have managed to do so . . . . Our .  casualties so far have been light, the  only Kelowna man I think, who has  been knocked out is Marshall, he was  killed by a shell. Ws had. time or  four killed in the regiment the last  time up.  I think, without exception we have  the finest lot of men in our squadron  that has ever been sent out of Canada, both physically and in every  other way. We have bad absolutely  no crime or trouble in the whole It  months we have been mobilized, and  they are all as keen as mustard and  hard as nails.

Dirigibles nf all types are being turned nflt, the correspondent understands, with feverish haste. From  all the comapondent was able to  learn, is, to bring the war home to  the English rieople who hitherto "have  not felt Ha effects so that they shall  be more anxious for peace*."  Much anxiety was caused yesterday  and this morning by the temporary .  disappearance of Miss Miller, of South  Okanagan. Miss Miller has been engaged for some time past on the  K. L. 0. bench, fruit picking, etc.,  principally'on the ranch of Mr. J. E.  Reekie. Yesterday afternoon about  three o'clock she went for a walk  along the creek with the dog.

This was not  merely a propaganda to, increase pub-  lie interest in home manufactures,  not merely a Made-in-Australia movement. It was a stirring call to the  Australian people to organize their  industries as a permanent boycott of  (ierman and Austrian products. The  Australian people see now that by  generously patronizing Herman and  Austrian manufacturers in the pust  twenty or thirty years they were  building up the great organization  Germany is now using to conquer Europe and wreck the empire. By their  patronage they were putting bricks in  the great edifice of militarism constructed by the war lords. The war  has shown more clearly than ever  realised before the necessity of co-operation and mutual support in trade  between parts of the empire. Whather  encouraged by a system of prelerence  within the empire or not, the solidarity of the great, free-will union must  be strengthened by larger intercourse  commercially and socially. Refusal to  build up enemies of the empire by  purchasing from them goods thai can  be made within the empire is a principle Australia is taking firmly in  mind, and its Manufflurers' Week  impressed the idea on every citizen..  Australia has been in a peculiar  trade position. Its great mining and  metal industries were practically con'  trolled by Germans. British metal importers were., content to let the more  enterprising and industrious Germans  exploit the Broken Hill and other  great ore bodies, and to buy supplies  from the producing German companies.  Australia found it convenient to buy  German and Austrian goods in large  ���|Unntities in exchange for her exports.  In 1013 imports of Gorman goods were  valued at, roughly, $25,0(10,000, the  biggest amount paid to any foreign  or -non-Kmglish speaking country. Th<  principle commodities thus brought in  were nPPurcl and textiles, cement,  drugs, fancy goods, glassware, metal  manufactures, wire, machinery, musi  cal instruments and paper. In Ih.  list of imports there are few article*  Australia cannot make herself ur buy  from Great Britain, or Canada and  the United States. In 1013 Australia  bought about 855,000,000 worth of  (inked States goods, and about 84,-  000,000 of Canadian products. In  buying from the United States care  has to he taken lost German good*  are bought under the American label,'  but the Australians express determine  tion to make sure that their trade  boycott of the enemy is complete.  Australian made paints and dyeb  are taking the place even now of cor  responding German goods. lCle ' ro  plated ware, Boap, perfumery, chemicals- are being newly produced. Felt  manufacture has been established - in  Sydney. Hat manufacturers are (urn  ing out "Austrian volour." Australian  beer and liquors are used exclusively  ini hotels. ,New piano-making-.enter  prises are starting. All these are  signs of the times, and arc but a fore"  runner of what is coming. "We have  something to be thankful for," say  the Australians. "The war has taught  us (o be more self dependent. It is ub  old saying, 'You never know what yo"  enn do until you try." and forth  with (hey began to plan how they can  get along without resort to' the Germans. Australia has not been n arlj  as well dcvcloihtl industrially as Can  ada, for instance, principally because  its isolation from groat industrial  neighbors has allowed it to progress  quietly and naturally- Canada has  been under an external stimulus  both through United States .competition and because of the facilities for  organizing manufacture offered by superior development across the border.  Australia has imported more than  8210,000,000 worth of goods from Bri  tain n year, or 52- per cent, of the  total, and 845,000,000 from other British territories. This is proportion  ately a far better Imperial showing  than Canada makes, for wc buy almost two-thirds of our foreign purchases from (he Uni(ed States. Austra  lia therefore has immense opportunity  for (he development of home industry  and can easily switch its former German business to Britain.  WHEN BUYIN6YEAST  INSIST ON HAVING  THIS PACKAGE  DECLINE SUBSTITUTES  forest Nurseries  The stale of New York has planted  on state lands, up to the end of 1914,  over four und n hnH million "rees,  enough, nt the rate of 1,200 tret's per  acre, to reforest nearly 3.800 acres of  land, ' From the state nurseries there  have been sold to private landowners,,  for reforest rat ion purposes, over thirteen million trees, while more than  two and a quarter million have been  furnished free of charge to' state institutions.  In Canada, similar work, though on  a somewhat smaller scale, is being  done by the provincial nurseries at  St. Williams, Ont , and Berth:crville,  Quebec. Similarly, the Dominion Forestry Branch has a large nursery at  Indian,Head, Sask., and another is in  process of preparation at Sutherland,  Sask., from which nursery stock will  be available during 191 fi. The number of trees shipped from the Jndian  Head nursery has steadily increased  from over two and a half million in  1910 to about three and three-quarter  millions in 1914. These trees are distributed among I armors throughout  the prairie provinces, mainly for shelter-belts, woodhits and the beautifica-  tion of grounds around buildings.

Krn.st Houghton, H Bristol  rector, has started an appeal u, patriotic women of the nation, to give  their lives to ameliorate the. condition  of maimed heroes,of the war by marrying them. He has launched at  "Leaguo for the Marrying of Broken  Heroes."  The rector contends that the example of France shows that unions thu>  arranged promise a great percentage  of happiness than is customary from  the methods in England because they  are based" upon n high degree of unselfishness.  Strict secrecy is promised as to the  women prepared to sacrifice themselves  after the plan of the league, until the  arrangements for their marriage are  complete,  CLEVER SPIRIT LEVEL  A new kind of level for builders and  others is designed to show the deviation from either horizontal or vertical  in inches or fractions to the foot. It  has-a Pan half filled with colored spirit, and covered with a glass fuoe, and  over this is a dial with two accurately graduated scales, The outer scales  gives horizontal deviations, tho inner  making known the inclination from the  vertical. The liquid, which'is always  level, is soon as a Barrow semicircular  rim between the two scales, and the  reading at the end of this liquid curve  may indicate the pitch of it rafter 0r  other desired measurement.    > .

Kelowna Record  Mi  aaaaM THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 1916  KELOWNA  RECORD  PAGBTHRM  Diminutive States  Concerned Id War  Belgium end Luxemburg are no longer the only small states of Europe  concerned in the present struggle. Andorra hopes to keep out, but San, Marino has gone in because as a neutral  she offered a fine perch for the war  birds of Austria-Hungary. The republic of Tavolara is presumably contributing its quota to the Italian armies, and Cracow, once a tiny, independent republic in the heart of autocratic central Europe may yet fall into the hands of the Russians, when  they have gained strength to come  baok.    . ,  Those little lands of Europe are  mostly curious political survivals ol  mediaeval times, and most of them,  although completely surrounded by one  ov another great monarchy, are republics. San Marino, Andorra, Travolara  ��nd Luxemburg have less than 1,600  square miles, and leas than 300,000 in-  ' habitants between them.  Their whole armed force is not much  about 3,600 men, though in San Marino almost one in ten ��f the whole  population is a soldier. The same  proportion would give tbe United  States an army of 10,000,000 men.   "  Travolara is the smallest of the European little lands. It is an island of  less than twenty square miles, ' just1  off,the northeastern coast of Sardinia.  Charles Alvert, king of Sardinia and:  ol Piedmont, on the Italian mainland,!  'good naturedly turned over the island  of Travolara in 1836 to the. Bartoleo  ui family, and the head of the family  set up as king. He ruled in peace  through the troublous European times  of the next forty-five years and when  ho died the people of Travolara sot up  a republic, in which Jho president is  elected for ten years, and the women  ( vote. Travolara has attracted so little attention that arguments have boon  drawn by neither pros itor antis, but  if that land is happy which has not  history, the little island and republic  must bo accepted as speaking for tho  side of equal struggle.  San Marino with twenty-three square  miles of mountainous territory, between the crest of the Appeninos. end  tho Adriatic coast of Italy, a few  miles southwest of Aimini, gravely  boasts itself the oldest stato in l'.u-  rope. Its capital of the same name,  said   to   have been    founded in the  fourth century, has a considerable part  of the republic's 10,000 inhabitants.  Small a* 'San Marino is, it is not content with one president, but has two,  Called "ruling captains," chosen every  six months from the great council of  sixty, elected by the people, from'  which council is chosen also a small  executive council.  The elections of Han Marino are carried on in great state, and tho whole  army attends the inauguration of the  ruling captains. San Marino is absolutely independent, except that she permits Italy to represent her in all foreign relations. As she in surrounded  on all sides by Italian territory, she  has no boundary disputes with any  power beyond the peninsula. San Marino possesses the distinction of having no national debt, but she has a  frequent annual debt. By a treaty  with Ita.y, San Marino undertakes  that no printing press shall b? main  tained in the republic. When Italy  went to war with Austria, San Marino  had to depart from her neutrality, lest  the Teutonic airmen use the mountains  ���of the' republic as a base for attacks  upon Italian towns, armies and ships,  but San Marino is under no obligation to send her army of 960 men to  fight her great neighbor's battles.  Austrian successes would probably  extinguish the liberties of a people  who have acknowledged no master for  hundreds of years, who escaped even  the hand of the all conquering Napoleon and have found no one to question their independence Bince tho Pope  fully acknowledged it in 1631.  Andorra is the only un0 of the tiny  states of Europe likely to have no  relation to the war. Far more than  1000 years this little republic, with its  -area of less than 200 square miles in  the heart of the Pyrenees between the  Spanish ptovince of Cataloni^ and the  French department of Ariege, has  maintained the independence which  Charlemagne is said to have conferred  upon it in recognition of services rendered to him when he was marching  againBt the Moors.  There is no freer or simpler people  in the world than tile Andorrans. They  number rather more than 6,000 souls  and every male between sixteen and  sixty is liable to military sendee. Andorra has little arable land, and has  to import'grain from France, but her  iron mines ate rich, her forests, much  reduced in area within the last two  centuries, are still valuable, and she  has" plenty of pasturage for her fine'  herds.  Hunting the Dragon  A Wa, Story for the ChUdreiv"  Nobody knew that the Dragon was  coming. They just woke up one morning to find that he had made his home  in the prettiest of their valleys.  - It was an ugly monster, with scales  like steel plates, and -with monstrous  daws and a flame-red tongue, and it  said, "Ach!" and "Hoch!" and "Ver  are der Kitcheners vor my tinner?" It  was a terrible monster.  Of course, all the people who could  run away went as fast as they could  out of its reach. Hut there were old  men and old women, and tiny little  children, who could not run fast  enough, bo the drigon caught 'them  and ate them up.  Then people who were strangers in  those parts wandered into the valley  unawares. But they never came out  again, for the dragon, was a very scientific dragon, and he had laid all  sorts of snares and traps to catch people, and. ho did catch them.  That was at first, before people knew  what sort of a creature he was. But  before long everyono knew about him,  and all the people said; "If there is  a man in tho world who con slay this  dragon, that man is our Prince, St.  George."  But, to their sorrow, the Prince was straight for the dragon,  then away    in a far-off land, hunting    When   the dragon saw him coming,  other   dragons.     And   so, for many he    dived   quickly,   but not quickly  months the monster had all bis    own enough.    While he flourished his tail,  way', and he killed and killed, and ate, it struck one tiny bulb, and there was  and ate,   and grew fatter and .uglier  every day.  a loud bang.   The dragon's tail   was  smashed into tiny atoms; and  - said  At last the Prince came home, to the J the Prince; "Now his -fighting days are  delight of everyone.   And at once   the, over,. for without his tail he   cannot  people crowded round him to tell him  all about the cruel dragon, and     his  terrible deeds.  Andorra's revenues are raised in  part from a tax on land values.' The  little republic has a legislative council of twenty-four members chosen for  four yettrs by the heads of communities, and presided over by two officers  one chosen for life, the other for four  years, in which arrangement one sees  the same fear of one-man power shown  by San Marino in having two ruling  captains. Andorra has two criminal  judges, one of which must be a French  citizen, and o civil judge appointed  conjointly by the French government  and the Spanish Bishop of I'rgai,  whose see includes the republic. Civil j  cusps may be appealed to the French j  court of cessation but there is no appeal in criminal cases. Perhaps nu  people of Europe below the Arctic circle gets less news of the great war  than the inhabitants of this tiny re-:  public hidden away in a few lonely.  valleys of the high Fyraneea. j  Luxemburg and Cracow attained in-!  dependence centuries after Sap Marino and Andorra, and Cracow lost  hers after less than a generation.        '  "And," said tho prople t0 the Prince  "now that people are scarce in those  parts, he has taken to flying in the  air, and he flies over miles and miles,  und drops bombs and poisons on quiet  little villages, killing their people. And  then ho swoops down and carries their  bodies to the valley where he lives."  "Very terrible," eaid tho Prinoe.  "Yes," said the people, "and ho can  swim, and can stop under the water  for ever so long a time. And he is  sinking shipB and drowning people all  over the seas. And thev say that he  picks up the dead bodies and eats  them. He is a terrible creature."  - "A most horrible one," said the  Prince, and straightway he went into  his laboratory, to ponder over all that  the people had told him, and to try  and think out a way of slaying the  dragon.  Three days and three nights, without  food or sleep, he stayed there working  and planning and thinking, and then  he was ready.  He choBe the' bravest young man he  steer."  And so it turned out to be. He was  never seen at sea any more, but bo  still went flying over villages, dropping bombs and poisons, and killing  tiny babies in their cradles.  So the Prince found another squire,  and set out dragon hunting onc0 more.  At last he found him flying over a  town, and up he went after him, flying hie brand new aeroplane.  Such a race it wast The dragon  scattered fire and poison a'I around  but the Prinoe was not afraid. He ran  his plane straight at him, and when  his brave young squire was killed at  'his side he took tho steering gear in  one hand and his sword in the other,  and slashed one of the dragon's wings  off.  Down went the dragon fluttering to  the ground. But the night was so dark  and the Prince so exhausted, that he  gave up the chase for that night:  Now the dragon could neither swhn  nor fly, so he stopped in his valley,  making bombs and poisons us fast as  ever he could.  Then one day the Prince appeared  at the head of the valley, and shout-  "Now, then, old baby-killer, come  out and fight."  "I vas not kil buby," said the dragon. "I vas kill big Kitcheners," But  he knew that wasn't true. "Vait a  mecnit," he said, and just then great  yellow   clouds of poison came rolling  could find to be his squire, and    one j ed  morning the  two set off to hunt the  dragon.  When they oamo to the place, an old  man told them that the dragon bad  that very morning flown toward the  sea. . So tho Prince and his squire  made for the sea, and they got n ship toward the Prince,  and went out. But   he was   ready for them.     He  And the way tho Prince hunted the clapped a piece of cloth to Mb mouth,  dr���gon out at sea was this: he put and marched straight through the  in the sea hundreds of little glass poison cloud,  bulbs which he had made in his laboratory, and filled with a socret fluid.  And the fluid was one which would  blow the dragon into tiny bits if it  touched him.  They hunted him for many days,  and at last they found him. And when  they came in sight of him the dragon  hissed: "Hoch!" said he, "Ve vill zee  who is der master of der zees." Then  from his mouth he blew a stream of  fire and poison, and he threw a bomb  which wrecked the ship and drowned  the young squire. Tt-.it the Priuco  jumped   into    the    water   and swam  There sat the dragon laughing, little dreaming that the Prinze was still  alive.  But the Prince was both alive and  wideawake. He saw a mighty heap  of bombs lying behind the dragon and  in a flash he threw a bomb of his own  at the heap, and made*an earthquake.  Then the dragon, having lost his  tail and his wing' and his poisons and  his bombs, had to stand up and fight  with the greatest dragon killer in the  world.  And such a fight it was!

It has been transmitted  to me by Sir George Pcrley, and is a*  follows:  "The Fete Day of the heroio King  of the Belgians, falls on Monday  next, November fifteenth, and as  Chairman of the National Committee  I appeal to the people of the British  Empire to celebrate the event in a  manner that will afford King Albert  tho greatest satisfaction, namely, by  subscribing money enough to feed tho  whole of his three million destitute  Belgians on their beloved monarch's  Fete day.

W. M. PARKER & CO.  Crowley Block  THE QUALITY JEWELERS  Bernard Ave., Kelowna  Jumble Sale Will Be Held on Dollar  Day, November 20th  * ~~~������  In the numerous efforts which are  being made on all sides to raise funds  for the different purposes connected  with the war, the claims, of the local  hospital, though not a wit less pressing, are in danger of being sidetracked. The hospital board, however, are  taking up the matter with energy and  an effort is to be made to lift the  crushing incubus of debt which during  the past year Has almost meant the  closing: up oi the institution. The following letter has been sent so far as  possible to every citizen of the town  and district. It is likely, however,  that some have been overlooked and  for their sake we are reproducing the  letter, and hope they will consider it  as a personal appeal.  Dear Sir,���  The directors wish to place before  you some of the difficulties under  which they .have struggled to keep the  hospital open this year.  Last January,.. we had to face liabilities incurred. during 1914 for current expenses amounting to nearly  f 1,500 and we are still in debt on current expenses, approximately this  amount. During this year the number of patients has been smaller than  ever before, yet it is necessary for us  to maintain a minimum staff, which  .could as. well have cared for more  than twice the number of patients we  have had, but it is impossible'to reduce the staff beyond a certain point  if we are to maintain the efficiency of  the institution, and remain in a position to meet emergencies, which is  largely the province of a hospital.  The collection of hospital charges in  these times is becoming increasingly  difficult, and cash subscriptions are  very few and mostly smallor than iu  the past. -        '  , The directors have exercised the  most rigid economy of management  and in this they have been nobly assisted by the staff, who voluntarily  reduced their,own salaries.  It is now felt by the board that u  special effort should be made to pay  off the. long steading liabilities of the  hospital, and to this end the directors  ask your aesistanee and co-operation  in a scheme which they believe will  not be a burden on any one person.  The scheme is as follows:  A big "Jumble Sale" will be held  on Saturday, November 20th, 1916 at  3 p.m., on the vacant lot adjoining  Glenn & Sons' warehouse on Pendozi  street, and in the vacant building  owned by Mr. Leckie just aoross tbe  street and south of Glenn's, Everything will be sold by auction.  Now, what we ask of you ia, that  you will give something for thia sale,  something you may not have use for,  or it may be something useful that  you would be willing to give for this  worthy cause. We shall be glad to receive anything of a saleable nature,  and, in the appended list we offer  some suggestions; of course there are  many other things:  Contributions   may  be brought   in  any time to Messrs. McKenzie Co.   or  Messrs. .P. B. WUUU & Co.  Youtb very truly,  THE DIRECTOKS,  Kelowna Hospital,  List of Suggestions  Fruit, Vegetables, Jam, Pickles, Butter, Home Cooking, Eggs, Wood, Hay,  Grain, Poultry (dressed or alive), Pigs,  Calves, Cayuses, Babbits, Pigeons, Implements, Machinery, Bicycles, Guns,  Curios, Furniture, Pictures, China, Cut  lory, Belles, Musical Instruments, etc  Bring in anything, large or small.  All will be gratefully received and acknowledged.  HIS 'BY BIGHT  . An Irish chauffeur in San Francisco,  who had been having trouble with numerous small boys in the neighborhood  ol his Stand, discovered one day on  examining his car that there was a  dead cat on one of the seats. In his  anger he was about to throw the ear-  case into the street, when he espied a  policeman.  Holding up the carcase, he exclaim  ed: "This is how I am insulted. Wh >  am I to do with it?"  "Well, don't you know? Take It  straight to headquarters, aad it It is  not olaimed within a month it  your property,"  Kelowna's Honor Roll  Is Still Growing  Though Kelowna has already given  freely of her men for active fcrvioe  and has gained favorable recognition  from the military authorities lor hor  great interest in the Empire's behalf  she is daily adding new names to the  long list of those have enlisted for active service.  During the past week information  was received by Sergt. Finch to the  effect that if he could enlish 25 men  for active service they could be billited  in. their home town for the, winter and  given their preliminary training under  his hand, being allowed the regular  pay of the active service men, plus  75 cents per day for their maintenance.  The idea of joining the forces and  remaining at home under pay while  in training no doubt has proven a  great boon to recruiting in this part  and while it was at first feared Kelowna could not scrape up the necessary 25 to take advantage of the offer it is now certain that many more  than tho minimum will be sworn in  probably before the end of the present  week.  Among the list of those already in  line are H. T. Heugens, Russel G.  Sutherland, C. A. Soott, Cyril Weddell, K. Kobbin, George E. Curts, D.  Lawson, J. M. Paret, S. R. Hatterr,  D. Stewart, Jack J. Mills, Charlie  Hereron, W. H. Seaman, H. N. Armstrong; Walter H. Raymer, R. 0. Bennett, J. D. Priestly. Clnir McPhee.  The new recruits a"e now being put  through a preliminary course of training consisting principally ol physical  drill for a few hours each day which  will bo increased gradually as further  instructions are added to their daily  routine.  Kelowna Women's Institute  Hold Successful Meeting  The instating of the Women's Institute held last Saturday was one of  the largest and most successful they  have ever had,, over 82 members attending. Mrs. B. McDonald gave a  most instructive demonstration of  "candy making." In a discussion  which followed on the advisability of  doing something .to, alleviate. the condition of the prisoners ol war in Germany, it was decided that the institute make itself responsible tor one  prisoner. This would mean a monthly  outlay of W which would enable a parcel of food or other comforts to be  forwarded regularly.  It was also agreed to adopt the  suggestion of the local Council,of Women throughout Canada and make a  special appeal for cast-off fan to be  forwarded to Italy, where the soldiers  are fighting amongst the Arctic rigor  of the high Alps. Any such contributions may be left at Oxley's store.  Announcement is made that during  the three days from Monday, November 22nd to the 24th a series of lectures under the auspices of the provincial Women's Institute will be given in Kelowna by Nurse Fanny Steed,  on "Home Nursing." The lecture* arc  for the benefit oi the local institute  members, and any lady wishing to join  before that date should Bend in her  name to the secretary, Mrs. Haloid  N.wby, together with the fee of 50  cents, which pays   to December   31st,  iAe.

'  All the world knows .that, in the gusty mirk of a March morning twelve  years ago a coffin believed .to contain  the remains of the ' departed General  was lowered into a grave in the Dean  Cemetery,' Edinburgh         Westminster Abbey was the only  resting place fit for so grand a warrior. But .his amazing-career had end  ed, not in a blaze of glory, but in  blackness and horror.  "Fighting Mao,"  the soldier's   idol,  the man   who had climbed by     sheenj  brain-power    and    courage .from   the  ranks to   a . Knighthood and   a great  command, had died:by his own hand,  Thue, at least, all believed.  And now the story, comes from the  front and is gaining currency ail over  the North of Scotland, that the suicide's grave in that Edinburgh cemetery is empty; that "Fighting Mac"  never died and was | never buried;  that 'in the uniform of a- Russian General he is lighting the-Germans in-the  eastern theatre of war, opposing the  Prussian weight and ferocity ��� that  grim infinitude of resource, that superbly calculated strategy, that thunderbolt suddenness of action that  won for Briton the battle of Ormlur-  man, and that placed MucDonuW for  all time among trie great military  heroes of the world.  General Demetrieff, the mysterious  and brilliant leader' of Russian troops  whose exploits during the past few  months have been of incalculable service to our great ally in the East  is said to be none other that Major  General Sir Hector MacDonald, K.  C. B.  Demetrieff bears an amazing facial  resemblance to-the great Scottish soldier, whose ' grave lies in Edinburgh.  This fact was commented on again  and again by Scotsmen travelling in  Russia before the wttr.   -  When, - therefore, Demetrieff. drew  sword against the Germans, and began to display military abilities-of the  highest order, small wonder the rumor arose that here indeed was Mao-  Donald himself.  No one who compares in detail the  portraits of Demetrieff and Hector  MaoDonald ..can fail, to be convinced  of the striking likeness that- the two  faces bear to each other. "They're  photographs of the same man taken  |Tjt different ages I" is the thought that  immediately springs to the mind.  The features Compared  Head and brow are of the same  massive cast in both portraits. The  deep-set eyes hold the same bright,  dauntless expression. The nose, is  straight .and broad, and big-nostrilled  ���the nose of the born fighting  man���is common to both; so is. the  pugnacious chin, hewn out of granite  resolve; the ragged moustache, and  the firm generous mouth.  Compare ��� present day photograph  of Kitchener with a portrait taken of  him at the time of the Boer war, and  yon will see that the jaw lino has altered in precisely the same degree as  the difference between the jaw line of  Hector MaoDonald and of General Demetrieff.  In fact,   one   might truthfully   say  day, as   so   many believe,   he is  year's of age. >  It was in the year 1863 that he  first, saw the iigtit, in the little village of KoottieW, near Dingwall,  Ross-shire, bis birthday being on ths  13th of April. It Was��on the 26th  of March, just 50 years later thai, Mis  world received the dumbfounding j  news that he had blown out his own  brains at a l'aris hotel,  But suicide was the Very last fate  one could have imagined for Heotor.  He was for too virile and healthy a  man for that. And there are scores  of people, including many old soldier  of the Highland brigade, who fought  under his leadership, - who for years  have resolutely maintained "Mao's no.  died."    /  "He was fust ted up wi' the treatment he was get tin," these old soldiers will tell' you, 'so he tpok himself off quietly to some place abroad!  where he knew he'd be better appro  dated. Sunt' blame to him either!"  , Victim ef Malice  * Certainly an insult of the grossest  character was offered to MaoDonald  when shortly after his appointment,  to command of the troops in Ceylon  he* was summoned to appear -before  a Court Martial of his brother officers and answer charges alleging mis  conduct of the foulest description.  The threatened Court Martial would  never have been allowed to oast it  shadow upon MaoDonald had he been  a man ol high social influence instead  of a soldier who had risen from the  ranks.  That the "charges Were without  foundation was amply proved some  few weeks after Hooter's death had  been announced, so that the hero, conscious all along, ol his innocence,  could have .no compelling motive for  an exit from the world. But the ingratitude, snobbery, and insidious ma4]  lice, which numbers of his superiors  is birth had long served - aut to the  one time plough boy and ex-draper's  assistant, must at last have thoroughly disgusted a man ol MaoDonald's  temperament, and one can i quite im-  uagino fierce disdain prompting him at  this final insult to act in the way that  the old Highlander soldiers hint at  and dramatically sever himself from a  society in which the system of oasta  ruled with so much arrogance,  In the days when MaoDonald ' left  the Inverness drapery store to become  a Gordon Highlander the army was  generally regarded as 'the' proper  sphere lor ne'er-do-weels and winna-  works. The dividing line between  the. soldier and the officer was muoh  more drastically defined that it, happily it today.. To rise without influence to commissioned rank was a  task more difficult than to climb- the  Matterhorn without rope or guides.  A beggar from the streets- ' might  as well have hoped for a welcome  into the1 drawing rooms of Mayfair as  a private for acceptance into the exclusive society of the officers' mess.  How "Bobs" Was Saved  But MaoDonald was determined to  achieve the impossible. He meant to  qe a general some day.  His first great chance came when  the Kabul Field. Force, with "Bobs'  in command advanced, into Afghanistan with the 92nd Gordon Highlanders, constituting part    of' the   First  Infantry Brigade. H   Bobs" and his1 staff -were pushing  forward tnrough a dark und frowning  Afghan defile,. when the little party  of Sikhs, who formed the advance  guard, discovered an- ambush of 9000  Afghans.  The 'Afghans had determined to  capture "Bobs" and his staff, and  they would in all probability have  succeeded in this audaoious plan had  it not been for "Fighting Mao."  Dashing forward, with . a haadjul  of  that the Kitchener ol today differs no!

He is a leader of  extraordinary dash and daring, and  from the time of the first Russian invasion of Galioia last autumn he has  been a continual thorn in tho side of  the- Prussians.   ,  His strategic powers are declared  to rank with those of the Grand  Duke Nicholas, /while no Cossaok  horseman excells him in courage and  nerve��� His soldiers worship him'.

Imm6rlal, too, is the tale of how  at the critical moment ol Omdurman  Colonel MacDonald, as he then was,  turned the tide in favor of Britain vby  the daringly original fashion in  which he led his Soudanese troops.  "Had the brilliant, the splendid  deed of' arms, wrought by MaoDonald  been done under, the eyes of a Sovereign-,or in the armies/' wrote Ben-  net Burleigh, tne famous war correspondent, "'lie had surely been created  a General on the spot. If the public  are in search ol the hero of the battle  of Omdurman, there he is ready  made!" /  But it is not lor these feats, or lor  the many brilliant ones he'accomplished in tne South African war, that the  memory of "Fighting Mac" is so be-,  loved by the rank and file.
