91.50 Per Annum
Total Registration
Nearly 3,000
Majority of People Registered
Early in the Week
The total number of registrstions
made last week in the Kelowna
district will, when all returns are
in, be something over 2,800. At
first the task' of registering every
person over sixteen years of age,
in such a wide district, promised
to be a rather formidable, one, but
Mr. Weddell, who had charge of
rhe district, laid his plans well,
with the result that by Friday, the
work had already been almost
completed. A big rush had naturally been anticipated for Saturday, the last day, and preparations
were made to cope with it by the
swearing in of additional registrars.
However, so well had the work
been done previously, that the rush
did not materialize ; in fact, Saturday was the slackest day of all.
The total figures for the various
centres have now all been handed
in with the exception of Okanagan
Mission, and it will be interesting
to give these. They can not be
regarded as a reliable indication
of the distribution of population
as owing the fact that as people
were allowed to registei at any
booth whether in their own district
or not, the registrations at one particular booth might and certainly
did include many non-residents.
On the other hand in some districts the people found it more
convenient to register in town than
at their own centre.
The figures are as follows:—

As stated before all the work
was done gratuitously, and thanks
are due to those public-spirited
individuals who gave up their time
to this task. Especially valuable
were the services of Messrs. K.
Iwashita and Lee Bon as interpreters for the Japanese and Chinese
respectively.
Orchard owners are having a
good deal of trouble just now with
cherry stealers. Boys, of course,
are the worst offenders, though bv
no means the only ones. Two
youngsters were up before the
magistrate the other day, and it
looks as though others would be
in trouble soon, In most cases
not only is the theft committed,
but serious damage is done to the
trees. Only a few days ago a band
of boys were seen dragging a large
branch of a cherry tree along the
road, picking off the fruit as they
went.

A news item just to hand tells of
the birth of a daughter to Mr. and
Mrs. H. McCullougli, of Port
Haney, B. C. Mr. McCullough is
manager of the Bank of Montreal
at that point, and was formerly

Cullough was also well-known in
Kelowna as Miss Frances Cather.
One of the worst railway accidents for some long time happened last Saturday near Gary, Indiana
when the Hagenback-Wallace circus train was crashed into by a
military equipment train and completely wrecked with great loss of
iite. It is estimated that 85 employees of the circus were killed
and 150 injured.

a large number of submarines and

McNamara stated that the operations had been much more successful than had at first been
believed. The imprisoned craft

Austrian Defeat Ends
in Complete Root
War news has Keen a little more
cheering during the past few days
since details of the disaster to the
Austrians and the victory of the
Italian army began to come in.
Tho big enemy army which effected the crossing of the Piave river
by means of pontoon bridges has
become involved in a collossal
disaster. Nature aided the Italians
the floods completely disorganizing
the attacking forces. •
Patriotic demonstrations were
staged throughout Italy Monday.
Flags were flown and processions
held. Cheering crowds paraded
singing the national anthem as the
result of the successful counter
offensive.
Italian infantry, cavalry, light
artillery and airplanes are cooperating in defeating the Austrian rearguard. Great numbers of the enemy
have been wiped out. The announcement of huge hauls of
prisoners is expected. All Italian
guns lost on this front last week
are reported recaptured.
Nine Austrian divisions were
completely annihilated. Fifteen
others were worn out in San Dona
di Piave region where entire enemy
regiments were destroyed. The
total Austrian losses in this drive
are estimated at two hundred
thousand. The Italian losses are
only forty thousand.
Reports indicate that General
Diaz seized the psychological
moment for renewal of vigorous
counter-attacks along the whole
river line when the Austrians had
only two bridges. The others were
swept away by the flood.
The military situation in Austria
is becoming of secondary importance according to the latest information reaching the Swiss border,
being overshadowed by the grave
internal disorders and strikes and
by conflicts between civilians and
military. The Daily Express' Geneva
correspondentsayethe reports state
that famine has begun to spread
rapidly. Not only have the big
towns suddenly reduced their bread
allowance from 180 to 90 gramms,
but the railway transport has reached a crisis resembling the situation
in Russia just before the outbreak
the revolution. A commercial
traveller who arrived at Geneva
yesterday direct from Vienna, said
lhat the Austrian Empire was on
the brink of a revolution. Resentment and hatred against the Germans is spreading especially in
Hungary.
Ready for Another Drive
"Another great offensive by the
Germans on the West front is likely
to be started within the next fe
days if not within the next few
hours," said Premier Lloyd George
in the House of Commons Tuesday, in speaking of the- amazing
organization which was bringing
American troops to France. "On
the next blow by the enemy, t
issue of the campaign may <
pend," declared the premier, " but
the Allies never felt better prepar
ed for it than they are to-day."
The premier referred to the Aus
trian defeat on the Italian front
and described, it as one of the
great defeats of the war. Speaking
of the arrival of Americans, he
said that enough soldiers had arrived from the United States to
satisfy the Allies and to disappoint
the Germans and ultimately bring
about the defeat of the enemy.
He spoke of the chaos in Russia
and to the possibility of the Allies
intervention, saying that it would
be to the interests of the Russian
people, if Russia wanted it.

Seek Investigation of
Agricultural Dept.
Overlapping of Departments
Causes Inefficiency
Farmers everywhere are watching with very keen intereest for
developments consequent upon
the appointment of the Hon. Mr.
Barrow as Minister of Agriculture.
Mr. Barrow is already well known
as an active worker in the interests
of farmers generally, and friend
and political opponent alike can
not but regard his appointment
with appioval and hopefulness.
That the Department of Agriculture has for some time been going
from bad to worse, and that ita
undertakings have been characterized by an exasperating lack of
something which makes for progress and efficiency, has been evident to everyone. This feeling
found expression recently at a
meeting held in Kelowna to prepare a resolution for submission
to the. Central Farmers' Institute.
It was decided to "urge the
Central Board of Farmers' Institutes to recommend to the Minister of Agriculture that there should
be a thorough investigation into
the organization of the Agricultural department, especially as regards
overlapping of work in the various
divisions of the provincial Department of Agriculture, the Education
department, the University of B.C.
and the Federal Department of
Agriculture ; that a definite policy
be laid down by the department
covering a period of years, so that
there might be a continuity of research work and development carried out free from political changes ; and that more adequate
financial assistance should be granted to the Agricultural department
for this purpose."
Judge Swurson was in town this
week for a couple of days, sitting
at the court house Wednesday to
hear a number of exemption cases.
The hot weather has brought on
the cherries, and picking is now

research work in connection with
the control of the peach worm and
onion thrip and other pests.
Th' following are the hours of

The picnic of the Union Sunday
Schools on July 1st will be a War
Time Picnic. There will be plenty

the Food Controller. Following
are a few hints which they give :
vegetable salads of all kinds, bale
ed beans, green onions, brown
bread, oatmeal scones, sandwiches
with beans, cucumber, lettuce, &c„
but no meots, cakes, cornmeal
cakes and muffins, potato flour
cakes, ginger cookies. The cars
will leave Knox church for the
picnic ground at 10 a.m. sharp.
Disaster at Revelstoke
The whole upper works of the
dam at the Revelstoke power plant
went out Saturday night as a result
of extra pressure due to another
rise in the lllecillewaet River, and
the collection of an immense jam.
Some years ago the regular dam
of concrete had been raised sixteen
feet by construction of huge concrete piers faced by heavy planking. This all went out with a rush
carrying everything with it and
destroying about seventy feet of
flume, which carried water from
the dam to the powerhouse a short
distance below.
Through some unaccountable
reason a stretch of the main line of
the CP.R. which parallels the lllecillewaet at this point became
undermined and washed out a
ahort stretch of track. This was
temporarily repaired and numbers
4. 14 and 3, which were held, up
for several hours, passed through
Sunday.
It is feared that the light and
power plant of the citv will be put
out of commission for several
weeks.

The news has just been received
of the death in hospital at Toronto
of Dr. Keller of Kelowna. It will
be recalled that a few weeks ago.
Dr. and Mrs. Keller were hastily
summoned to Kingston, Ont. ow>
ing to the critical illness of their
son Rodney. Dr. Keller was himself in a weak state following a
serious illness and operation which
had then brought him verv near to
death. While east he found it
necessary to go into hospital at
Toronto there to undergo a further
operation. His death occurred
very suddenly Tuesday.
Mr. H. Andison, of the Kelowna
Market, shipped several cars of
cattle to the coast this morning.

PUBLIC NOTICE
Military Service Act. 1917.
Men 19 and 20 Yeara of Age*
Harvest Leave*
Leave of Absence on Ground of Extreme Hardship.
Procedure to obtain Leave of Absence.
Men Nineteen and Twenty Years of Age. .
It has come to the attention of the Government that there Ib a widespread
impression that young men of nineteen years, and those who became twenty
since October 13, 1917, as well as those who may become nineteen from time to
time and who have been or will be called upon to register under the Military
Service Act, are to be immediately called to the colours. ,
This impression is quite incorrect. No date has yet been fixed for calling
•upon such men to so report for duty, nor has the question been brought before
the Cabinet for decision. In view of the need of labour on the farm, it is most
unlikely that consideration will be given to the matter until after the harvest is
over, although of course the Government's action must be determined primarily
by the military situation.
There is no further obligation incumbent upon young men of the ages
above mentioned who have registered or who do so hereafter, until they receive
notice from the Registrars.
Harvest Leave.
Some enquiries have been received as to the possibility of granting harvest
leave to such troops as may be in the country at that time. No definite assurance can be given on this point as advantage must be taken of ships as they
become available. On the other hand, harvest leave will be given if at all
possible.
Leave of Absence on Grounds of Extreme Hardship.
It is desired that the Regulations respecting leave of absence in cases of hardship should be widely known and fully understood. Such leave will be granted
in two cases:— (a) where extreme hardship arises by reason of the fact that the
man concerned is either the only son capable of earning a livelihood, of a father
killed of disabled on service or presently in service overseas, or in training for
such service, or under treatment after returning from overseas; or Uie only
remaining of two or more brothers capable of earning a livelihood (the other
brother or brothers having been killed or disabled on service, or being presently
in-service overseas, or in training for overseas or under treatment after his or
, their return from overseas) j brothers married before 4th August, 1914, living in
separate establishments and having a child or children not to be counted,
in determining the fact that the man is the "only" remaining eon or brother|
(b) where extreme hardship arises by reason of exceptional circumstances such as
the fact that the man concerned is the sole support of a widowed mother, an
invalid father or other helpless dependents.
It is to be noted that in all these cases the governing factor is not hardship,
loss or suffering to the individual concerned, but to others, that is. members of
his family or those depending upon him.
Procedure to obtain leave of absence. s
A simple system for dealing with these cases has been adopted. Forms of
application have been supplied to every Depot Battalion and an officer of each
battalion has been detailed whose duty it is to give them immediate attention.
The man concerned should on reporting to his unit state that he desires to apply
for leave of absence on one or more of the grounds mentioned and his application
form will then be filled out and forwarded to Militia Headquarters, Ottawa. In
the meantime, if the case appears meritorious, the man will be given provisional
leave of absence for thirty days so that he may return home and continue his
civil occupation while his case is being finally disposed of.

In fact it has not  only put in its appearance, but it  haa fairly well established itselt in  several thriving settlements. To  the farmer who haa had any previous acquaintance with this deadly enemy, auch an announcement  will be read with consideiable  alarm. Unmolested the Sow This,  tie is capable of almost driving  him out of business. It can take  hold of a rich meadow or verdant  pasture and in a very ahort time  have every other plant backed off  the plot.  It ia easy to recognise by its  bright yellow flower sometl.ing  between a thistle and a dandelion  in shape, its long stem, sometimes  about three feet in height, and ita  long narrow deeply serrated leaves.  Its deadliest feature, however, is  hidden in the ground. This is me  root which sends its runners along  in all directions, under the soil.  Plants which are propagated in  thia way are always hard to deal  with, but what makes the Sow  Thistle so hard to eradicate is the  fact that even the tiniest piece of a  root left in the soil is capable of  starting the whole thing over  again. Thus indiscriminate breaking up of the roots without actually getting rid of them, will only  make the trouble worse. Farmers  who are wise will in the first place  see thet the weed haa no chance  to seed itself and also get after the  patches thoroughly while thev are  amall.  While on the subject of weeds,  it might be well if the Parks committee were to consider some  means of getting rid of the patches  of poison ivy which are increasing  in the public park. One especially  bad bit is right alongside the  gravel walk, and a place consequently into which children might  easily stray, with possibly disastrous results.  Odwn Thrip and Its  Destruction  Onion thrips cause considerable  damage to the onion crop in this  district everv year and last year  accounted for a large loss in tonnage. They are already in the  onion fields in large numbers. The  thrip is a very minute insect'which  feeds on the leaves, causing yellow  ish gray irregular spots to appear  on the leaves, later causing the  entire leaf to dry up, turn yellow  and die. These insects work  principally at the base ofthe leaves  and for that reason are difficult to  reach with the spray material.  Spraying will control these pests il  the spray is propeily applied. The  essential points in spraying are :���  (1) Good pressure (not less than  100 lbs.)  (2) Nozzle to throw fine mist  spray  (3) Proper direction of sprav  (direct nozzle so that the spray will  be driven down into the crotches  and the base of the leaves).  The greatest difficult*' in sprav  ing onions is getting an outfit to go  between the rows. Knapsack  sprayers and small wheel barrow  outfits are very convenient, but because of the low pressure maintained do not do as good work as the  more powerful outfits. A good  hand pump or power outfit with a  long line of hose and long rod is  the most satisfactory type of outfit  that has been tried. With lhe  spray outfit at the end of the row  the long lead of hose can be  dragged between the row while the  operator sprays either side as far  as he can reach.  The following material will destroy thrips if the insects are hit wilh  the solution. This is a contact  sprav and in order to kill it nni-t  come in contact with the insects:���  Black Leaf 40  $ pint (Imperial)  Whale oil soap 4 to 5 pounds  Water      100 gallons.

Rader was one of the oldest fliers  in the country having served with  the British Flying Corps in 1915,  returning to the United States to  become an instructor. He is the  son to whom Dr. Rader referred in  hia lecture here during Chautauqua  week.  BURNE & WEDDELL  Barrister,  Solicitors and  Notaries Public,  e. C. Weddell.    -   John P. Burne.

We  expect to embark for Cedar Creek  at 10 a.m., but before that there  will be inspection of kit, Ate. The  balance of the week will be spent  in camp and the daily duties and  parades will be posted there.  At the present time we <tre only  certain of 14 of our scouts who will  be attending camp, as compared  with 25 last year. Nearly all of  the others are engaged in "Soldier  of the Soil" work, but as we have  repeatedly reminded scouts nnd  their parents through this column  and through letters, attendance at  camp is compulsory unless satisfactory explanation of inability to attend is furnished. "Soldier of the  Soil" work this >ear ia of course  accepted as a satisfactory explanation, but scouts in the troop who  do not attend camp and who are  nol engaged in "Soldiers of the  Soil" work, unless other satisfactory  explanation for non attendance is  git en. such as sickness or absence  from town, in accordance with our  rules will no longer be permitted  to belong to the troop. Just as it  was compulsory for members of  the Militia to attend the annual  Militia Camp for two weeks each  year, so when a scout joins a troop  he enters into an obligation to attend the troop camp. We always  of course accept the explanation of  a boy who has been working on a  steady job ail along and who cannot obtain leave to attend.  In addition to our own scouts we  are very glad that we shall have  three Scouts Irom Summerland and  possibly one etirh from Vernon  and Penticton. At the moment of  writing we have not been able to  secure either a cook or tents, but  we are living in hopes. 1/we cannot secure a cook we shall of course  do our own cooking, and in that  case it is likely that we should not  stay in camp quite so long, as it  would be rather hard on those attending who are good cooks. The  question of obtaining tents is more  serious but we hope to secure them  somewhere before Tuesday next.  We shall hold a service in camp  on the afternoon of Sunday the 7th  of July, and the afternoon of that  day, together with Thursday the  I Ith of July, will be visitors' days  when we hope to see as many of  our friends as can come down. We  shall hold sports on the latter day.  We have had to postpone the  proposed basketball tournament  which we were going to have with  Summerland on Saturday of this  week, owing to the heat and in  ability to secure a full turn out of  teams for practice. " e shall certain  ly look forward however to having  these matches with Sumrr erland  in the Fall.  Former Troop Leader A. Du  Moulin and Second L.

Less than 200,000 women were  employed in Great Britain before  the war began and these were  mostly in textile mills. The report  for 1917 gives 198,000 in government offices exclusive of civil service and local government. The  latter two employed 146,000.  Munition workers numbered over  800,000 ; workers in chemical and  engineering plants, 200,000; land  workers 100,000 (with an additional 30,000 called for this summer)  and thousands as mechanics, motor  drivers, ambulance drivers, street  car and omnibus operators, cab  drivers, every sort of railway work,  letter carriers, bank clerks and  office workers of every kind. Recruiting goes on steadily in all these  lines and the response has been to  the tune of 15,000 a week.  The spirit of these women is  wonderful. Difficult work and  dangerous work is not shunned  but taken cheerfully. Extra hours  are taken as a. matter of course.  We're not tired!" is their motto  and when holidays are mentioned  the reply ia: "What will our men  at the front do if we go holiday-  making?" Girls who never tied  their own shoes nor stuck to anything continuously for thirty  minutes, work contentedly through  a long day for weeks and months  side by side with their former maids  or women from the fields.  Skilled workmen have been glad  to teach these brave and plucky  women the secrets of trade efficiency. Excavating for factories,  actually laying the bricks and doing  the the carpentering is being done  every day in order to release men  for the front.  "Farmerettes" is a name which  carries a pleasant suggestion of  picturesque employments, but too  often it stands for such unlovely  tasks as cleaning pigsties or such  nerve-racking work as tending  horses when one is actually afraid  of the creatures. "Make the most  ol yourself and be worthy of the  trust that has been placed in you,'  was the British Government's advice to applicants for service in the  Woman's Land Army. Not one  of the more than 5,000,000 women  engaged in war work has failed to  heed the message.  Competitions For Seed  Growers  To encourage seed glowers in  their efforts at production and to  induce them to take greater pains  in the production of seed of superior quality, the Department of  Agriculture haa-this year made  provision for provincial aeed product competitions, under the direction of the chief soil and crop  instructor, Mr. H. O. English, who  is also secretary of the B.C. Seed  Growera' Association. Prizes of  $15, $10 and $5 are offered for  the best plots of wheat, oats, barley, clover, alfalfa, vetch, rye, corn,  field peas, potatoes, mangals, turnips, carrots, garden beets, radish,  rape, oniona and beans, varying  from one acre in size for the first  nine, to one-eighth of an acre for  cabbage and lettuce. The conditions are very simple, involving  chiefly the clearly-defining and  marking ot the plot in advance of  the visit of the judge. Entries must  be mailed to Mr. English at Victoria, before July 1st.       '  Enter your baby today at J. B.  Knowles' in the Patriotic Babv  Show. Number of votes will win  the valuable prizes.  The British government is pro-  oounding a scheme to build at  least 300,000 houses under state  and municipal rate aid as soon as  conditions are favorable.  Charlea Edward Oliver, aon of  Premier Oliver, has invented a  compartment gasoline tank for use  in airplanes. The premier's son  has been engaged on his task for  some time past, and now writes to  the effect that the Inventions Board  of Ottawa, through its engineer,  has come to the conclusion that his  type of gas tank for airplanes has  practical value. Plans and specifications have boen forwarded to  the Imperial Air Board in London,  following whose consideration  adoption of the tank is reasonably  expected.

Mormons are said to be carry  ing on an active propaganda in  the province with Vancouver as  headquarters, with the object of  establishing a temple in B.C.  Nine hundred thousand men,  12,000 of them marines, have  been shipped across the sea. They  include the troops shipped from  all American ports of embarkation.  The United States to-day is five  months ahead of ita programme  for placing an army in France.  Field Marshal von Hindenburg  is said lo be suffering from an  acute nervous disease, his mental  capacitv is much affected and that  he is confined in a private sanatorium. A newspaper adds that  Hindenburg took no responsible  part in the recent offensive on the  Western front, the work being  chiefly done by General Luden-  dorff.  Masters of ships arriving at  Philadelphia report that a number  of, whales, sharks and porpoises  have drifted ashore on the north  Atlantic coast between Bamegat  and Cape Henry, evidently having  been killed by gunfire br by the  explosion of bombs or shells below the surface. The bodies of  seven whales lie on the beach between Cape Henropen and Cape  Henry, practically torn to pieces,  having apparently been mistaken  for submarines and fired at. Hundreds of porpoise have drifted  ashore, all evidently killed by ex-  explosions.      j__  FOR SALE  12 acre orchard at Rutland  Good ioil, five-roomed houae, with  basement and good barn end chicken house.

The tact is also emphasized that all butter  in such packagea must  be of tha full net weight  of sixteen ounces, and  in default of aama a  fin* of from $10 to $30  for each offence ia imposed. Whey butter  must be so labelled  even when mixed with  dairy butter end dairy  butter retains its label  though it be mixed  with the creamery product.  You can be supplied  with neatly - printed  wrappers for your  butter at the Kelowna  Record Office, for the  following prices:  INCLUDED  100PAPER * jpwnting  200  500  1000  ��  $1.50  2.00  3.15  4.50  These prices include Both the  Paper, which is the best obtainable  for the purpose, and the Printing  of same.    Please note this.  Owing to the extraordinary rise in the price of butter  parchment (which ha* gone up over 100 per cent) we  have been reluctantly obliged to raise our prices slightly.  Nearly ell 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.

Stockwell is announcing an auction sale of miscellaneous goods for July 6th, at his  place on main street.  The dance he Id recently in Mr.  A. Day's new barn proved to be  such a great delight to the young  and not so young���people who  attended, that by -special request  it is to be repeated next Wednesday evening.  Rev. and Mrs. W. Arnold Bennett left on Monday for the co^t  where ihey will attend the meetings of the Baptist Convention, Mr.  Bennett will occupy the pulpit of  the Central Baptist church, Vancouver, next Sunday.  Mr. W. R. Jago, the grand treasurer of the Loyal Orange Lodge,  was a visitor in town Monday,  when he addressed a meeting of  local Orangemen. Mr Jago is from  Port Coquitlam and is at present  engaged in touring the interior of  the province.  Many Kelowna people will be  interested to learn of the wedding  on June 1st at Juneau, Alaska, ol  Angus McMillan to Miss Georgia  Z. Payne, formerly of New Westminster. Miss Lilly' McMillan, a  friend of the bride, attended her,  while Mr. Harvey Nicholson supported the groom. A wedding  luncheon was served at which  many friends of the bride- and  bridegroom were present.  A German named Gustav Wolff  who haa lately .come to work in  the neighborhood from near Ltim-  bv, v/an arrested by the provincial  police Saturday on a charge of  violating lhe Alien Enemy regulations bv failing to report each  month to the police. It was found  that he had never once reported  since the war began. He was fined  $50, or three months, but paid the  fine. v  Mr. and Mrs. D. McMillan have  been visited this week by their son  Neil, from Seattle. He is in uniform, having enlisted in the Cana"  dian Engineers. Though not  coming within any draft requirements the fact that four of his  brothers have given themselves  (and two their lives), to their country's service, proved more than he  could stand, so he has come over  to Canada to make v fifth. He  left for Vancouver yesterday.  There arrived on Tuesday's boat  an interesting piece of farm equipment in the shape of a "Cleveland" tractor, a lowset caterpillar  which is claimed to be handier to  manage for orchard work than a  team of horses. Certainly the way  in which it worked around in the  confined space on the boat on its  own "steam" or rather coal oil,  negotiated the gangway, and backed up to hook on to the gang plow  which came along with it, was a  surprise to many who had not  made the acquaintance of such  things before. It comes down from  Vernon, where !t has been working on the Coldstream estate, and  a demonstration of its powers is to  be given by a practical test at the  K.L.O. orchard.  Miss Bateman, of Vancouver,  arrived Tuesday on a visit to Mrs.  Geo. Barral.  Mrs. Atkinson moved out to  their place on the K.L.O. bench  this week after spending a few  months in town.  Mrs. A. Town, of Peachland,  Mrs. C. R. Reid, East Kelowna,  and Mr. J.W. Jones, M.P.P.. have  kindly consented to act to judges  in the fancy drees parade on July  6th, at the carnival in aid of C.P.F.

There are two classes in the  Patriotic Baby Show; (I) babies  up to nine months, (2) over nine  months and under two years. First  and second prizes in each class.  A garden party under the  auspices of the Women's Auxiliary  of St. Michael's church will be  given Saturday June 29th on the  lawn of Mis. Crawford and Mrs.  Hewetson, from 3 to 6 in the afternoon. Ice cream and strawberries  will Ije served. Two half-hour  concerts will be given in the house  while tennis and children's games  will be arranged on the ground.  The ladies of the Red Cross  have this week moved their quarters from Jiear the Presbyterian  church to the vacant store next to  Jerman Hunts. The new location  is much cooler for one thing, and  also more commodious. There is  no -limit now to the number of  ladies who can be accommodated.  The ladies are grateful lo Mr.  Archie Johnson for moving the  sewing machines, tables, &c , free  of charge.  Frank Aeneas and his wife, Indians from down the valley, were  found in the park Fridaj last in a  hopeless state of intoxication.  "Near beer" they alleged, was the  cause, when they were brought up  to answer for their lapse fiom  sobriety, but it is more than probable they had added some one of  the various decoctions which are  said to impart a kick to the otherwise harmless beverage. Aeneas  was fined $50 and his lady $25.  They were old offenders.  Let it be understood lhat the  prizes in the Patriotic Baby Show  go to the greatest number of voles  Ten cents buvs two votes.  The garden parly held last  Thursday at the home of Mr. and  Mrs. Soames, at East Kelowna was,  as might have been expected, one  of the most attractive and enjoyable affairs which have been held  for some time. The grounds surrounding the Soames residence  are always pretty, especially at this  time of the year, but they were  made doubly so for this occasion  by the tasteful decorations, augmented in the evening by electrical devices operated under the  supervision of Mr. Jas. Trenwith  by means of a "Delco" lighting  plant. The entertainment programme was well managed and  included many pleasing items by  local people. Refreshments of  ice cream, lemonade, cakes, 6tc.  were served, and some delicious  strawberries from the nearby ranch  of Mr. Dick Smith. Altogether the  affair was most successful and  the ladies concerned are to be  highly congratulated. Through i>  about $200 will be handed over to  the Red Cross.

The three letters already published thow a sufficient division  of opinit n to justify an explanation of the attitude of yet another  st-ction of Kelowna's citizens.  First, let me say that thoae, thinking aa I, have no criticism to offer  ol the Chautauqua as such, nor* of  its money value. They cheerfully  concede everything claimed for it,  except that they themselves owe  anything at all���even their support  to those progressive snd wide-  awake citizens who brought it here,  This attitude would have been  different had the entertainments  been the result of local effort, or  had the proceeds been for any of  the philanthropic enterprises which  the war has called forth in such  ever-incre.ising numbers.  To me strings of Chautauqua  pointed pennons, hung across the  street, called with a different voice  to that heard by the multitude of  pleasure-seekers. They spoke of  the waves of Prussian foemen,  whose pointed bayonets were  gleaming at the throats of our  kith and kin beyond the sea. They  brought to mindthe heroism and  unselfishness ot others, and every  thought ot those once fair fields of  Flanders, now ravaged and desolate, made me wonder what the  people there would think of Chau-  t.suquH. Is the bloodiest and most  terrible war the world has ever  known still undecided ? is Christianity itself at stake? Is it true  that nations and governments are  calling to us for self denial, self  exertion ? Then, in the name of  all that's human, let us be reasonable in our relaxations. Let us  think of those in our midst who  have lost father, husband or son.  This is not the time, not will it be  the place, if Death stalks but a few  steps nearer, for solid weeks of enjoyment. Thank God Kelowna is  not where Rheims or Ypres is and  that our bodies lie not, wheie millions of others are, in the fields of  France.  Yours, truly,  J. R. BEALE.
