 ..___��-  ���raw-  i  VOL.'X.   NO. 17  C. KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY. MARCH 14, 1918.-4 PAGES  legislative assembly Library   a  Victoria. B.C.  ^��tw*~.w*u~��...  $1.50 Per Annum  Seed Growing Presents  Great Opportunities  ��� If the farmers of British Columbia fail to take hold of the opportunity presented to them of getting  into the business of seed growing,  and making it a permanent and  substantial industry, it -will not be  because of lack of government,  assistance and encouragement. U ���  to the present time, it wns pointed  out by Pfof. Boving. of the University of B. C, at a meeting yesterday  in the Board of Trade room, 95 to  66 per cent, of the seed used has  been imported into Canada, a large  amount of it from Germany and  other parts of Europe, and this  notwithstanding - the proven fact  that Canada could produce the  greater part of this in just as satisfactory a manner. Prof. Boving  has spent .many years in eastern  Canada experimenting in this matter, but has come to the conclusion  since his residence in this province  that while the East can produce  most varieties satisfactorily, he  doubts if there ia any country in  the world where seed can be developed to greater perfection than  in British Columbir.  The growing of seed, Prof. Boving pointed out, is a business where  careful attention to details can  make a great difference in both  the yield per acre and the quality,  and he'therefore advised growers  not to attempt too much at the out-,  set. He counselled rather concentrating on one or two varieties in  order to establish the best possible  strains.   .  The business was a very profitable one, though he admitted there  seemed too great a spread between  the price paid to the grower,, and  the price at which the seed Was  sold to the user.  The professor gave a very detail  ed and interesting explanation of  the methods adopted in producing  different kinds of seed, with the  probable yield and returns to be  expected. A. an instance mangel  seed should show an average yield  of 2000 lbs. to the acre. The contract price was 25c. and with a subsidy of 3c. would give a return of  $560. The cost of growing had  been worked out at $150 to $160  per acre. Two years were required to produce the Beed crop.  Mr A McMeans, who is connected with the Seed Branch of the  Dominion Department of Agriculture, gave some startling figures  regarding the immense quantities  of seed demanded by tho market.  California had already gone extensively into the business and he told  of one concern which had raised  9000 acres of sugar beet seeds at  a cost of 8c. which compared verv  favourably with the former price  for imported seed. There was no  reason wh> B. C. should not enter  this business and make a success  of it.  Mr. McMeans announced that he  and Prof. Boving would be in Kelowna until Friday, and had authority to make contracts with farmers  who desired to do so. They would  be pleased to give all necessary information, '  Rutland News  The local secretary for lhe Prisoners of War Fund reports the receipts during February, including  the balance brought (rom January,  to amount to $160.26.  The expenditures were aa foi.  lows: Paid to Prisoners of War  Fund $95 (including $5, share ol  proceeds of Billiard Tournament  from Mr. Whitehead), paid to Red  X Society $51.75, balance retained  to cover expenses $13.51.  The following donations were  received: G. McKenzie Co. Ltd.,  ter; Casorso Bros., butter; Kelowna Meat Markf t, butter; Jas. H.  Trenwith, china for prize.  Enemy airmen bombarded Paris  last Friday. There were some  casualties. Berlin says this is in  reprisal for alleged allied raids  over Manneheim and Trier.  Coyotes and cougars are playing  havoc with the deer in some parts  of the Okanagan this spring. In  the mountain sections there is a  heavy crust on the snow which enables these marauders to approach  their prey with ease. One settler  reports that in a distance of a few  miles above Lumby he saw recently tha bones of seventeen deer.  (frees oer own Oorrsstmadsetl  The social held yesterday under  the auspices of the Methodist Ladies' Aid proved one of the'most  successful of it* kind ever held.

A petition to the government  from 1800 farmers of unorganized  districts of British Columbia asks  for the exemption of farm improvements from.taxation and also dts*-  cusses what the farmers consider  is the excessive taxation burden  they have to bear at present.  The government is asked to remit  and abolish the surtax brought into  force last year by which taxation on  lands in unorganized districts was  doubled. It is also requested that  oourts of revision appointed under  the Taxation Act be composed of  n county court judge assisted by two  competent'assessors residing in the  district,  It is understood that the govern-  ment'proposes to provide for exemption to farm improvements.  ��:  i    o  The payroll ir. Vancouver is  trow estimated at 31,000,000 per  month.  Following a dance herd in a  Ruthenian schoolhouse about five  miles south of Harford, Sask., three  dead bodies were found in the  snow and one young girl is missing. The tragedy occurred during the blizzard laat week-end.  After Mr. E?D. Barrow, ML.A.,  Chilliwack, had explained the.  workings of the Frazer Valley  Milk Produceia' Association to' a  meeting of some 60 milk shippers,  representing southern Vancouver  Island, committees were appointed  to organize the island from Che-  mainus south. If 80 per cen*. of  the shippers will come in on the  scheme the organization will proceed along the line* adopted on  the mainland.  Valuable Series of  Lectures to Farmers  A aeries of lectures arranged  under the auspices of the Kelowna Farmers' Institute were deliver-  tfd last week at various points,  commencing with Glenmore on  Thursday afternoon, when Prof.  F. M. Clement, of the B.C. University, spoke on the work being done  by the B.C. Fruitgrowers' Association, Mr. R. S. Treherne, Dominion entomologist, on " Bugs," and  Mr. J. A. Grant, Markets Commissioner, on " Prairie Markets."  Prof. Clement showed the many  advantages gained and to be gained by the organization of fruit-  ���growers into a province-wide association, which was able to keep  its members in touch with all  developments affecting their interests, and to make a united stand  in dealing with Federal or Provincial governments regarding legislative measures. The speaker also  outlined the proposed advertising  campaign to popularize B.C. fruit  on the prairie, and asked for generous support on the part of all  growers and shippers. Mr. Treherne adapted, his talk on "Bugs"  to the needs of the district and  drew particular attention to the locust, which tended to become a  very prevalent pest in Glenmore  and on the benches, aphis and  woolly aphis, with directions for  effective control in each case. He  atrongly advocated the use of power sprayed wherever possible as  being far. more effective than hand  methods.  Mr. Grant showed how conditions on the prairie were becoming  more and more favorable to the  development of a convenient and  unlimited market for the producta  of the Okanagan. He urged that  every effort,be made to avoid the  competition and price cutting  which resulted in unnecessarilv  low prices to the growers. By  proper co-operation the grower  could get better returns from his  labor and invested capital.  On Thursday evening lectures  v/ere held at three points simultaneously, namely, Rutland, Mission Creek and Kelowna. At  Rutland Mr. M. S.'Middleton, provincial horticulturist, gave some  timely advice on the top working  of winter injured trees, by cutting  them down below the lines of injurs and utilizing the old'root.  At Mission Creek Mr. Grant  spoke again on "Prairie Markets,"  while Mr. A. B. Tweddle, of the  Agricultural Statistics Branch, explained a very practical and easy  method c*J keeping farm accounts.  He staled that the department had  a supply of all forms necessary for  distribution free and would render  all assistance possible to the beginner. <  In Kelowna, Prof. Clement took  up the matter of "War Gardens."  An important addition to the  regular schedule of meetings was  a talk at Rutland Friday by Prof.  J. A. McLean of the B. C. University, on "Community Live Stock  Breeding." Prof. McLean, who  had made a special journey from  the coast bv request lo deliver this  address, pointed out thejmany advantages to be gained by confining  a district to one breed of cattle,  and concentration of effort lo improve this so as to gain a reputation for it.  The discussion naturally turned  on what breed should be adopted, j  and it was lelt that as the Holstein '  had already secured a consdtr-j  able hold here an effort should be I  made to adopt that breed of  cattle.  Hogs Can Kelp lo  Win the War  To boost the pig as a factor in  winning the war was the object of  a visit last week to Kelowna of Mr.  J S. Harris, of Moresby Island.  Mr. Harris, besides being an enthusiastic and successful farmer in  several lines, as well aa a breeder  of pedigree Jerseys, is a past master in the ait of hog raising, and  his talks on the Subject are lull of  interest for all pig owners. Mr.  Harris spoke at Rutland and Mission Creek, taking advantage of  the Farmers' Institute lectures.there  his own visit having been somewhat unexpected, and not known  of in time to be fully announced.  Mr. Harris prefaced his remarks  by referring to the present serious  shortnge of foodstuffs and the necessity for producing and conserving every ounce which can be  shippeb overseas to feed the Allies.  Bacon was one of the things which  contained a large amount of nutritive matter in proportion to its  bulk, and therefore was an easy  thing to transport just now when  ships were scarce.  He was not out to advocate extensive hog raising where the farmer had to buy a lot of mill feed  at the present high prices to do it.  He specially advocated spring pigs  to be raised on summer pastures  and sold in the fall. If all farmers  who could would thus utilize their  summer feed to the full extent, the  pig production might easily be  doubled without going to any great  expense for mill feed. Even weeds  and cut-offs from root crops and  other waste, could be turned into  pig with proper means. An outdoor cooker was a wonderful saver  of waste foods for hog feeding.  For the mill feed used he recommended dry feeding instead of  Mops, using a self-feeder to save  labor, and a self waterer.  In addition to these lectures, Mr.  Harris visited the Rutland and Kelowna schools and spoke to the  scholars on. the pig clubs which  were being- formed in various places.  He would be back again in the  district he said later in the fall and  would be interested to know just  what had been done.  Replying to a question in the  Commons Sir Gilbeit Parker representing the food ministry, declared  that until further orders no fiesh  grain may be used in brewing.  Roumania Forced Into Enlist Next Week as  Practical Surrender "Soldiers of the Soil"  Roumania. through the failure  of Russia, has been put into a position little less than tragic, said  Andrew Bonar Law, Chancellor of  the Exchequer, addressing the  House of Commons Thursday  night. At present, he said, peace  negotiations were proceeding between Roumania and the Central  Powers and it would not be right  to go further than to reiterate the  sympathy felt for the Roumanian  people and the regret that conditions absolutely beyond the control  of the Allies rendered it impossible to go to her assistance.  Referring to the Mesopotamia  and Palestine the chancellor said  he doubted whether it ever had  been possible to carry out decisive  operations by means of troops  transferred by*sea.  It was never expected, the. chancellor explained, that the Saloniki  forces would be solely on the defensive. There had been reason  to believe they would play a part  in another way, but the events in  Russia had made that impossible.  He intimated that it was not impossible the Saloniki forces might  be attacked, but predicted that the  Central Powers would pay dearly  for every yard they drive the allies back.  But for the position the Allies  were now holding Constantine  would still be on the throne of  Greece and the whole country  overrun by the Germans, who  would have been able to control  the Balkans from all sides. This  would have been a great accession  of strength he pointed out, while  the Greek harbour also would  have been at the disposal of enemy  submarines, and it would have  been almost impossible to keep up  communications with the east.  The Rev. A. Dunn and two child,  ten Jeft yesterday for Vancouver,  where Mr. Dunn intends to take up  his residence for the present.  Seven or eight German airplanes  made a raid over England last  Thursday. One of them reached  London and dropped bombs in  the northwest and southwest districts of the city. Eleven persons  were killed and forty-six injured.  Six other persons, it is believed,  are still buried in the wreckage.  With the purpose of getting the  "Soldiers of the Soil" movement  started in Kelowna an 1 district  the'Rev. J. A. Miller of V.r couver  was in town this week, and as a  result of his visit definite steps  have been taken in readiness for  "Enlistment Week," which is fiom  the-1 7th to the 23rd of this month.  As already explained tbe in-ive-  ment seeks to enlist the services of  High School boys fiom 15 to 19  years of age to assist in farm work  and production during the coming  season. As'this hew youthful army  is expected to have,at least 25,000  boys on its roll in Canada, many  of whom have already had some  experience in farm work, the effect  on production this year should be  enormouB. 1 he scheme is not new  entirely for a similar plan was tried  with great success in Ontario last  year.  1 his great scheme, inaugurated  by the Canada Food Board, will be  under the direction of Mr. Taylor  Statten, the national secretary for  Y.M.C.A. boys work. Mr M.  Wright of Vancouver, will act as  provincial secietaiy. .  The Department of Agriculture  has undertaken to prepare a roll of  farmers requiting help so that no  time may be lost, while the movement itself will look after all details  of enlisting placing and supervising  the boys.  Recognizing that this is war  work just as much as other branches of nonrcombatant aervice. a  special bronze medal Will be  struck and boys who .can show  show three months' service with  the "Soldiers of the Soii" will be  entitled to wear it. Even boys  who are working on their father's  farms can enlist_and their services  will count just the same.      ,  Arrangements are being made  by the Department of Education  ao.-lh8t. boys wjm. thus, serve in  farm work may be released from  their studies with as little loss of  position and interruption in the  progress of their 6tudies as possible. I  Mi. L. V. Rogers, high school  principal, has undertaken the work  of enlisting the boys of this district.  Mr and Mrs. Smith, visitors from  the prairie who have been living  atthe Garth, returned to their home  this week.  New Surgical Discovery  A new surgical discoveiy, changing   the   whole method   of" blood  transfusion,  is   announced   nt   the  French    Academy    of     Medicine.;  From half  a   pint   to   one pint of i  blood can be drawn from the sub-|  ject   without    pain,   and   without j  wasting a drop of blood. It is then  chemically treated   and   bottled to  be saved until wanted for injection  into   the   veins   of  a   patient.    A|  small hypodermic needle   is  used  for both giving and   receiving the  blood, so   there is no danger, and  no pain to either party.

Purchase Seed as Soon  as Possible  Farmers who have not already  made provision for securing the  seed grain necessary (or the crops  they plan to grow during the present year will now have great difficulty in obtaining good selected  seed. Throughout the Dominion  of Canada and the United States a  great scarcity of practically all  kinds of seeds exists, and those  who have not as yet filled their  requirements would be well advised to take immediate steps to do so.  The Department of Agriculture  is receiving daily many requests  from farmers asking that they be  supplied with seeds of different  kinds. It is obvious that it would  be an impossibility, neither would  it be sound policy, for the Depatl-  ment of Agriculture to undertake  to meet the requirements of all  those people who ask for assistance of this kind. It is the duty of  cultivators of the soil to make pro.  vision themselves for their seed  requirements, and all progressive  farmers under ordinary conditions  do so. *  Instances occur, however, when  there may be a total or partial  crop failure in certain districts  where the assistance of the government in the way of supplying seed  grain is, in the public interests,  both necessary and advisable.  In these times, when the greatest crop production is essential (or  the well-being and very existence  of our British Empire, it would be  nothing short of a calamity if any  lands ready for crop were to lie  idle owing to the owners being  unable to secure the ^necessary  seed.    '  GOVERNMENT METHOD  The Hon. Minister of Agriculture  has therefore authorized the purchase by the Department of a  number of carloads of wheat, oats  and barley, which will be placed  for distribution at those centres  where there is the greatest need  for seed. The "Seed Grain Act"  introduced on the opening day of  provincial legislature, gives authority to the Minister of Agriculture  to purchase seed grain to any  amount not exceeding $20,000, at  any one time, for distribution to  farmers, the recipient of the grain  to pay the actual cost of same, or,  in the event of hia being unable to  do so on delivery, he shall sign a  promissory note which shall be  payable on a date to be fixed by  the Minister, not later than December 3 next, following the date  of the sale, with interest payable  thereon at a rate not exceeding 7  per cent, pel annum. As an additional security for payment of seed  grain, th* Minister shall file for registration in the Land Registry  Office for the district in which the  lands ' described in the application  for the seed grain are situate, a  certificate which establishes a first  charge against the lands as additional security for the seed grain  supplied. A number of carloads  have already been purchased by  the Department of Agriculture, but  farmers are advised not to rely on  this source of supply, as it is highly probable that, owing to the great  seed scarcity, it may be impossible  for the Department to fill all requirements.  NOT RESPONSIBLE  In undertaking this work the Department of Agriculture accepts no  responsibility whatsoever. Every  effort will be made to secure the  best seeds procurable at the lowest  prices prevailing, but  it must be  $     Orders for  Local  Scouts  ���*e PREPARED"      Kelowna  Troop  Troop First;   Self Last  Edited by Pioneer.

Commissioner Heneage passed  through Kelowna on Friday afternoon last on his way to Summer-  land, thence to Penticton and the  Kootenays. He will be back in  Kelowna for the concert.  There are two troops in Vernon,  one attached to All Saints' Church  which is going to endeavor to carry on tinder the care of the Rev.  Laycock, and the other troop is  going to try and carry on under  its Leaders alone, as senior officers  cannot be found. We wish these  two troops every success and have  always felt that there should be a  good strong troop at Vernon.  At the local theatre last 'weeTc  one had an opportunity of seeing  some American Boy ' Scouts at  camp, &c, and was able to judge  between the respective appearance  of the American Scout's uniform  and our own. We do not think  there is much doubt but that shorts  make a far neater uniform than  knee breeches.  The Otters took a fall out of the  Beavf rs at basketball last Friday,  by the small score of 3 to 2, after  a very close game.
