Campbell made a trip  to Kelowna on Wednesday by tlie  ferry.  Mrs. Linslrom and her daughter  Ida were passengers to Kelowna  Friday.  Mr Steele has been busy this  week grading the road from West-  bank to the ferry, wilh A. W. Joslyn and H. Brindle as teamsters.  Mr. Hughes, of Kelowna, was  here this week looking over the  orchards with a view to the purchasing of fruit this coming season  We are pleased to see Mrs  Clarke is able to get out again  She paid a visit to her home here  ihis week accompanied by her  daughters, Mrs. Henry Drought,  and Miss M. Clarke.  Mr. Chesboio is on the war path  again. He is determined to extinguish that formidable enemy of  ours the codlin moth. After examining the fortifications around  the trees he is busy getting the  machine guns ready for the prey  (spray).  Mr. McDonald, of the B.C. Fruit  Growers Association, was touring  round the district and sizing up  the crop last week, estimating the  approximate yield of the various  crops with an idea to the erection  of a packing house this season. It  is believed he has secured quite a  few of the orchards already.  We esteem Mr. Bughman to be  a good judge on lhe subject of  crop estimation. He was up from  Penticton the other day and while  here tot k a look over the orchard  of Mr. Scot Blackwood, giving his  estimate of apples in that orchard  to be around 2,500 boxes, not to-  mention cherries, plums, peaches,  &c, bile it is recognized he has  the best vinery in the district. It  ooks aa if he were coming into  his own this year.  Considerable excitement was  aroused on Tuesday night when it  was known the P.-O. authorities  were asking for tenders for the conveying of the mail from the post  office to the wharf at Gellatly in-  stead of Westbank as usual, as it  was the intention of the C.P.R. to  discontinue calling here with their  steamer Sicamous either north or  south bound.  As a result of the foregoing announcement it was decided to hold  a meeting of the inhabitants of the  district, which was held in the  schoolhouse on Thursday night, at  7.30, when Mr. John Davidson  who is our old timer, was unanimously voted to the chair. He  said this was not the first time they  had tried to wipe them off the map,  Bill Provides For Proportional Representation  On Friday last a bill whs introduced  into the House by the Hon. Mr. Farris  acting attorney general, which made  provision for allowing municipnlit ioa  to adopt proportional reprtwontation  in munioipal elections. It nay* iiai  in case a petition from five* per cent  of lhe electors of a municipality qual  ified to vote is presented to the coun  cil asking that the opinion of the  electors be obtained by way uf plebiscite as to the advisability of bringing  the act into force, a by-law to that  effect shall be submitted, and. if passed  the act will thereby become law. Ch*  the act may be made effective in any  municipality on resolution of the  council passed by a majority of three  fifths of the members present.  For the purposes of the aot each  municipality shall be considered aa  one ward. Each elector will havo one  vote only, and in giving ii Ha will  signify his choicb of candidates by  marking the figure "1" opposite his  lirst choice, and if he desire* two or  more choices, the figures '%" "3," etc.  down the|Hst of candidates in order of  his preference. There shall be separato  ballot papers for mayor, aldermen  trustees, police and license commission-  era, and for any elective office.  FIRST KELOWNA SCOUTS HOLD  ANNUAL ENTERTAINMENT  (Continued bom Pal* 1.)  (Vlnformation u the hands ol trie  Belgian government is to the died  that all males between the ag��3 of 16  and 66 in the province of Luxemburg  have been deported for work in France  and Germany in the environs ol ths  frontier. A census of women also has  been taken. The able-bodied will be  compelled to work in tho fiald, roiilao-  ing men. mothers with infants \v 11 be  allowed to remain at home and the  of the German authorities. In ths  census no -distinction has been made  regarding social standing.  The production of butter, cheese  and eggs along the line of the Canadian Northern Railway in the  three provinces of Manatoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta showed an  increase of shipments in 1916 from  1915 of 1,605 tons of butter, 79  tons of cheese and 583 tons of  eggs.  The annual convention of th  Western Canada Irrigation Association will be held in Maple Creek,  Saskatchewan, on August 1st, 2nd  and 3rd, 1917. The acting secretary of the association is Robert J.  C. Stead, Calgary, Alberta.  The British transport Cameronia  with troops, was torpedoed by an  enemy submarine in the eastern  Mediterranean on April 15. One  hundred and forty men are missing and are presumed to have  been drowned. The survivors of  the Cameronia say the vessel was  torpedoed in fine, calm weather in  the afternoon. The submarine was  not sighted.  The Vatican is informed that the  upper classes in Austria are now  convinced that Germany ia prepared to betray Austria to save Germany in the peace negotiations.  Thus the Emperor and the classes  are united (or the first time in demanding peace.  LI. ONE  AUCTIONEER  and  General Commission  Merchant  (Successor to J. C. Stockwell)  Second - Hand Goods  Bought or Sold on  Commission  Flour and Feed Always  in Stock  Next to the C.P.R. wharf,  Kelowna  but it mu't be a light to the finish  this time (loud and uproarious applause). The meeting waa then  thrown open for discussion on the  subject, and after quite a lively  time Mr. Maason Russell produced  a resolution which was read to the  meeting and eventually adopted.  A committee was appointed to see  lhat a copy of it was sent to the  following: Hon. Martin Bun ell,  Premier Brewster, Hon.John Oliver  The Post Master General, the  Chairman of the Railway Commission, and to Supt. Peters, manager  of the western division of the C.P.R  and to report upon the matter as  soon as Supt. Peters replied.  Mr. Masson Russell was over to  Kelowna Friday getting the resolution typed to send away to the  respective places and after being  duly signed were sent away.  Japan Rice  A 5 an ideal food Rice can  not be surpassed, and in  times like these especially,  when the cost of living is so  high, it will profit you to use  this highly - nutritious food  more extensively. -  1 ry our newly-arrived,clean  highly-polished Rice.  The Japanese Store  Phone 112  drifted away from the troop. Two  others had enlisted and the other  five left the district. They had also  lost two assistant scout- masters,  Mr. Keown, who had been a great  help to Mr. Weddell, had enlisted,  and Mr. Thomas had gone to the  coast. Another assistant scout  master had previously enlisted,  Mr. Jepson. The troop was smaller, but every one of them was a  real scout and keen for the work.  Mr. Heneage said that last year  to his great regret, he had been  unable to be present at the Kelowna scouts' entertainment, but he  had determined to be here at all  costs this year, and had refused a  pressing invitation from the Victoria troop in order to come to  Kelowna. He spoke of the great  difficulties which had been created  for the movement in B.C. by the  war, owing to the enlistment of so  many of their officers. The great  problem at the present time was  to find suitable officers to carry on  the work. The value of the scout  training was now universally recognized, and it was owing to such  men as Scout Master Weddell that  they had been able to carry on as  well as they had under the present  trying conditions.  The ceremony of presenting the  stars and badges was then gone  through each boy approaching and  saluting in his turn as the decoration was handed to him.  First stars were presented to  Cubs Ralph Ball, Earl Wilson,  Howard Leathley, Hugh McKenzie, Elwvn Williams, William Akeroyd, John Aitken, Lloyd Cunningham, Harold Cunningham and  Eddie Pettigrew.  To the scouts- Second-class badges were presented to Seconds L.  Day, C. Gaddes and L. Gaddes,  and Scouts R. Oykes, F.Sinkinson,  E. Hunter, N. Marshall, S. Whitehead, C. McKenzie, C. Rowcliffe,  C. Copeland and I. Thomas.  Scout Tom Taylor gained the  distinctions of First-Class Badge,  Cook's Badge and All-Round Cord  (grade A); Second C. Gaddes lhe  Swimmer's Badge; Scouts C. McKenzie and R. Dykes the Cyclists'  Badge.  This ceremony concluded, an  amusing sketch "April Fools," was  given by Patrol Leaders James  Calder and Tommy Snashall, and  Assistant Cub Master Francis Buck.  The misunderstandings which  arose between a gentleman who  was anxious to dispose of a  marriageable daughter, another  who wanted to purchase a horse,  and another who sought to bury a  deceased young lady caused some  real funny situations, which were  handled with real talent, and the  three actors were loudly applauded.  Next came a tilting match from  chairs instead of canoes. The padding coming off one of the lances,  however, brought this to an abrupt  termination, just as it was beginning to get interesting.  A concluding chorus, "Pack up  your troubles in your old kit, bag,  and smile, smile, smile," was a  characteristic Scout song, and was  well rendered.  Scouts and Cuba then lined up  at the salute'and led in the National Anthem.  The whole affair was most successful and enjoyable, and great  credit is due to all who had any  hand in its arrangement.  Mrs. Calder, Mrs. Duggan, and  Miss E. Jones, the latter as accompanist, were presented on the sec.  ond day with floral bouquets from  the scouts aa acknowledgement of  their invaluable assistance. Mr. G.  S. McKenzie also deserves hearty  thanks for his training of boys in  their songs, their excellent rendering of these being eloquent testimony to the thoroughness of his  tuition.  As previously announced, the  proceeds of the concert are devoted chiefly to providing the necessary funds for the annual summer  camp, which is to be held as usual  during the summet holidays. It  is likely that the troop will go  to the same camping grounds as  last year, viz., Cedar Creek. In fact  it would be difficult to find a better place for the purpose.  In prosperity, prepare for a  change;jn adversity hope for one.  Serious Losses from  Late  Fruit prices in the Northwest are  expected to pehigh this year, especially prices of soft fruit, because  of the heavy losses by frosts in  California. ,  This is the opinion of fruit dealers of Spokane who have received  word that more than $5,000,000  damages was done there last week  California papers announce that  50 per cent, and perhaps 70 per  cent, of the apricots were destroyed, and 40 per cent, of the raisin  and wine grapes. Prunes in some  sections were a total loss, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.  The salmon fishers in the Fraser  river are being seriously pestered  by hair seals which rob the nets.

He estimat-  the total casualties of the war to be  in excess of the United Kingdom.  (The population of the United  Kingdom, according to the census  of 1911 was 45,370,530.)  growing unrest  caused a sudden decision to giv  immediate financial aid to the pr<  visional government.  The Russian provisional goven  ment declared to-day that it wa  united in the rejection of a sepa  ate peace and that it adop's as i  aim the re-establishment of a gei  era! peace which will not ten  either to domination over othi  nations or to the seizure of the  national posseasions-a peace wit]  out annexations or contributions.  THE CORPORATION  CIVIC HOLIDAY  NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Municipal  Council has proclaimed THURSDAY, JUNE 7th, a Civic  Holiday, to enable all owners and occupants of property to  assist in a GENERAL CLEANING-UP OF THE CITY.  On June 8th a thorough inspection of all property will  be commenced. Those who have failed to have all garbage  removed from their premises by that date will render themselves liable to the penalties imposed by the Health By-Law,  Citizens may obtain the services of the City Scavenger  for the removal of garbage by leaving their ordeis at the  office of the City Clerk and paying to the Scavenger his customary fee for such work.  G. H. DUNN,  Kelowna, B.C., City Clerk.  May 22nd, 1917.  Printed Butter  Wrappers  J. M. CROFT  Bootmaker.  All ftinds of Repairs  BERNARD AVENUE,  KELOWNA.  According to the new  Dominion Government  regulations all farmers  who sell butter sillier  to the stores or privately, are required to have  it properly covered in  a wrapper on which  MUST appear in prominent lettarsthe'worde  "DAIRY BUTTER."  Ths tact is also emphasised that all butter  in such packages must  be ol tha full not weight  of sixteen ounces, and  in default of same a  fins of from $10 te $30  for each offence ia imposed. Whey butter  must be so labelled  even whan mixed with  dairy butter, and dairy  butter retains He label  though it be mixed  with ths creamery product.  You can be supplied  with neatly - printed  wrappers for your  butter at the Kelowna  Record Office, for the  following prices:  100PA^BSnMG$l.50  200  500  1000  ����  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.

Sproul was a passenger to Vernon last Friday on a visit  to Mrs. Thompson.  Mr. Tom Forrest arrived from  England Monday after an absence  of two years.  Mrs. R. Knowles and son, who  have been visiting with Mr. and  Mrs.). B. Knowles were passengers  Tuesday for Summerland.  Miss Barnhill of the public school  staff left for Alberta Saturday morning having received news of the  death of her sister-in-law. Miss G.  Hunter has temporarily taken her  place at the school.  As will be noted by an advertisement of the City authorties in  this issue, the date of "Clean-up  Day" has been postponed until  June 7th. This was thought desire-  able owing to its too close proximity to the Victoria day holiday.  For the convenience ot members the Farmers' Institute has procured a stock of application forms  for horses and cattle brands. Also  registration forms for all the breeds  of horses and cattle kept in the district and for sheep, hogs and dogs,  and transfer of ownership forms.  These can be procured any afternoon by calling at the office.  For the purpose of adding  weight to the agitation ot the Board  of Trade for better boat connection  at Penticton which would avoid  the present awkward delay of  twenty-four hours in the trip from  Vancouver to Kelowna, a petition  is being circulated this week to be  forwarded to the proper officials of  the CP.R. and also of the K.V.R.  The matter is also being taken up  with the Vancouver and Victoria  Boards of Trade.  The adoption of the principle of  woman suffrage may have some  far-reaching effects in municipal  matters too, as several important  amendments made recently to the  Municipal Act show. Won en are  not only eligible to fill any position  on the council, including the may  or's chair, but also on the Boards  of Licence and Police Commis  sionera, wlru, by-tKc way, must be  elected in future at the same time  as the aldermen. Hitherto the  Licence and Police Commissioners  have-been appointed by the Attorney General on the recommendation of the council.  Len. Watt was a passenger to  Vancouver Monday.  Mrs. H. H. Millie returned Monday from a visit to Vancouver.  W. T. Ingley, of Summerland, is  listed among the wounded this  week.  Mrs. and Miss J. Johnston left  yesterday for Sapperton where  they will stay for a few months.  Mr. and Mrs. H. H. Millie went  uy to Armstrong yesterday for a  few days visit.  The local C.P.R. agent has received notification that the adop.  tion of the Summer schedule on  the main line has been postponed*  until June 24th.  A cable on Wednesday last con  veyed the sad news to Mrs. Johnston, of Sutherland Avenue, of the  death of her youngest son James  Murray Johnston, at Calcutta, In  dia. He spent six months with his  mother in Kelowna in 1915. The  sad news came from his brother,  who had just returned to India  from Kelowna and was fortunately  beside him when he died. Much  sympathy is felt for his sorrowing  mother and the family.  ������        ��� '  Weather Report For April  April  Max.  Min.

Success of Silos io Kelowna  In an article in the Agricultural  Journal for May, Mr. R. J. Ferns  writes: "In 1915 our work was  carried on principally in the Okanagan and Arrow Lake districts,  while a few silos were completed  near the coast. During that season  we built 13 and filled 11. Prior  to 1915 there was only one silo in  the Kelowna district. This had  been filled the previous year, but  through lack of experience all the  silage was lost because of improper filling. After building one demonstration silo at Kelowna, a  considerable number of the same  type were constructed in that district. During a recent visit to Kelowna I met the man who had assisted me in building our demon,  stration silo, and he informed me  that he had since'erected nineteen.  These numerous silos have undoubtedly to a large extent been  responsible for the success of the  creamery at Kelowna, which began  operations in 1915. At present  the District of Chilliwack is the  only part of British Columbia that  possesses more silos than there are  in the Kelowna District.,'  Writing Paper  Special  VOU have been advised of  the advance in price of  paper for nearly two years.

In no way is this truth more  clearly demonstrated than by the  work done b> the Army Medical  Corps wilh its army of doctors,  nursing sisters and their assistants  generally.  The only experience the wrilei  has had of hospital life of any kind  whatsoever, was gained in a Canadian military hospital in England,  and the impressions received from  that experience might be described  by the words " loving kindness and  cheerful patience. The doctor,  mually spoken of as " the captan  or the " M. C," came round bt a  given hour in the morning when  ihe patients (those who were able  to be up and about) on the command of "Ward "shun I" sprang to  attention for a, moment and then  8 ibsided to an " easy " attitude.  Then began the morning round of  the ward by the captain accompanied by the sister responsible  for the particular treatment of the  various patients.  Despite the more or less military  air and bearing of the M. O. the  Doctor and the man would peep  out, and along with a certain degree  of routine and strictness so to speak,  ���ho prevailing key note of carefulness and kindness was never lost  sight of.  Another pleasing feature of hospital life was the camaraderie that  existed among the boys. They  ilways bore themselves toward  each other wilh a tender rough-  'iess, or a rough tenderness, and  were always ready to share their  "fags", or other luxuries wilh another less fortunate : or wheel in  chairs provided for the purpose a  less fit comrade, to another part of  the ward when desired. Although  the patients were constantly coming and going, new-comer became  almost immediately acquainted  with practically the whole of the  ward, and so the ward came to be  "our" ward.  While a spirit of tender solicitude, quite obviously was exhibited  in the treatment of the sick and  wounded; woe betide the "lead  swinger," the malingerer, who  would fain have made of the hospital a "funk hole" Patients of  this description immediately fell in  the estimation of staff and fellow  patients alike, and needless to aav  once they were definitely found  out their departure from hospital  very soon followed.  It would not be right, but even  if it were, I could not refrain from  commenting on the devotion of  the nurses to their work of mercy-  their labcurs of love. They never  seen.ed "fed up," or bored wilh  their work at all, but undertook all  the varied duties of their office  with such an alert ail of cheerfulness, that it was a pleasure and a  joy just to see them going around.  The tact too with which a sister  would get a patient to swallow his  medicine, almost with an appearance of relish, was good to see.  To observe these 'vomnn at their  work, and to experience their services is nt once a recreation ami  an inspiration.  Indeed the whole work of the  C.A.M.C. including as it does the  saving of life and limb, of reason  and sight (and in this statement I  would include the work of the Re d  Cross) goes far to show that in this  sorro ' ing old world of ouia  there  Orders for  Local  Scouts  "i�� prepared*     Kelowna Troop    Troop First;   Self Last  Edited by Pioneer.
