 VOL. IX.   NO. 42.  gfelrttma He**vfe  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY.  SEPT. 6, 1917.-4 PAGES  Regular Meeting of  City Council  Consideration of Correspondence is Main Business  Owing to the Labor Day holiday  the city council held its regular  meeting Tueaday morning, when  the Mayor and Aid..Buck, Duggan,  Harvey, Rattenbury and Rogeraon  attended.  The consideration of correspondence formed the main part ot the  business, the firat letter read being  one from the secretary of the A.  and T. Association suggesting that  the bridge over the slough near  the Exhibition building be inspected as it did not appear to be  atrong enough to bear the heavy  traffic likely to pass over it to the  Fall Fair. The matter waa handed  over to the Public Works committee.  An application waa alao made  by the A. and T. Association for  free water and light during the  Fall Fair, and it was decided to  grant the Association an amount  equal to the rates incurred.  The Fire Brigade aaked for two  street lights to be placed on Water  atreet in the vicinity of Mill Creek,  for the convenience of firemen  who lived south of the Creek. This  waa also referred to the pre per com  mittee.  1 he provincial inspector of steam  boilers sent in response to application from the council an authorization for the operation of the city's  steam roller at a working pressure  of 125 pounda until he could inspect it.  Mr. G. H. Dobie, manager of the  Okanagan Telephone Co. wrote  acknowledging receipt of the councils' letters, and adviaing that Mr.  Muirhead, provincial inspector of  electrical energy would be in the  Okanagan early this month when  the matter of clearance between  the company'a wiiea and the city'a  would be taken up.  In connection with the pruning  of the trees interfering with the  company's wires, Aid. Rogerson  stated that he had driven around  the city in company with the local  manager of the company, and he  had been convinced that the latter  had just grounds for complaint,  There might be legal queation as  to who was responsible for the  pruning but it was apparent that  the work must be done if serious  damage waa to be avoided. Two  old trees growing on Abbott street  had beeu removed, and it was his  intention to have the parks foreman prune the other treea where  thev were found to be damaging  the wires.  The municipal clerk of Penticton  sent a copy af a resolution which  was being forwarded to the Union  of B- C. Municipalities advocating  the appointment of a fully qualified  person as consulting engineer for  irrigation. Large sums, it was  pointed out, would have to be  spent on renewals of the various  systems throughout the Okanagan,  and it was important that such  sums be spent to the best possible  advantage. Water users as a body  were not technically competent to  decide upon the respective merits  of the various methods of construction, and if risk of loss through  avoidable errora was to be eliminated they should know where to  turn for sound and reliable advice.  The Board of School Trustees  wrote objecting to a remark of Aid.  Rattenbury at a recent meeting to  the effect that the amount required  for school purposes this year was  over $1800 more than last year.  This it was stated was not correct,  and the trustees requested that due  publicity be given to the correct  figures.  Aid. Rattenbury admitted that  his statement was probably misleading as the amount given waa  made up of $359.83 which was the  actual additional amount required  to be raiaed by taxation thia year  as shown by the School Board's  estimates, $750 which was deducted from the Board's estimates for  1916 by the Finance committee  when striking the tax rate, and  $736 which waa the Board's estimated increase in the provincial  government grant for 1917. He  would like it to be clearly understood, however, that the School  Len. Pettigrew is  Amongst Killed  After a brief respite Kelowna is  again mourning the loss of one of  her soldier sons in Leonard Pettigrew, news of whose death in action came by wire Sunday morning. Pte. Pettigrew was one of  the young men who joined the  172nd, whose ranks have now,  alas, been so sadly thinned. He  twenty-five years of age and member of a family who have been  resident in Kelowna for some ten  years past. He was a carpenter  and box-maker by trade.  In all the sporta of the city he  was a prominent figure, and no  hockey or lacrosse team was complete without him. He was unmarried, and the aecond of the  family to enlist for the front, Pte.  W. Pettigrew being at preaent. in  the trenches.  First Draft Called Up On  November 27th  It is .announced that the first  draft under the new Conscription  law will be called up November  27th. Premier Borden is responsible for the statement that ample  exemptions will be allowed to provide for the continuance of all  industries.  Exemption tribunals under the  Military Service Act have been  pretty well located, and of the  number upwards of eleven hundred had been apportioned as follows : Ontario 427; Quebec 300;  Manitoba 93 ; Saskatchewan 5 7;  Alberta 110; British Columbia 74;  New Brunswick 47 ; Nova Scotia  91 ; Prince Edward Island 15, and  the Yukon 2.  When the exemption tribunals  shall have been constituted���and  conaiderable time will be required  for the details���the proclamation  will be issued calling out the men  of the first class to service.  The regulations as drafted purpose that the local tribunals will  act as registrars. Every man called  out will have to report to the tribunals, where they will be registered.  If a man does not claim exemption he will be regarded as a soldier on leave until ordered to a  training camp. If he claima exemption his case will be dealt with by  the board.  Serg. S. Gray and Pte. Plowman  returned from England this afternoon have received their discharges.  Board's estimates showed that it  was necessary to raise $359.83  more in 1917 than 1916.  The monthly police report showed a total of ten cases of a miscellaneous chsracter before.the magistrate! with fines aggregating $ 115  paid into the city treasury. Forty-  one complaints had been investigated. The report alao included  the monthly teats of milk from four  local dairies as follows:���  Norman Day - 4.02  D. C. Middieion 4.00  J. Birch - - 3.05  R. Ritchie - 2.08  In this connection it was decided to give instructions to the chief  constable to obtain further milk  samples, complying strictly in so  doing with the regulations of the  Milk By-Law, so that the evidence  so obtained could be used in instituting prosecutions if thought  desirable against dealers whose  milk fell below the required standard. It was also decided to write  to all holders of milk licenses asking for full details as to the number of cows and the dates of official tests for tuberculosis.  The night constable, R. Harris,  tendered his resignation which  was accepted, the council placing  upon record their appreciation of  the efficient services rendered during the three months in which Mr.  Harris had occupied the position.  Aid. Duggan made a recommendation that an additional gong  be installed in connection with the  telephone at the power house.  This was owing to the fact that in  the case of a recent fire the engineer (in charge of the plant had  been engaged in the boiler house  when an alarm of fire had been  turned in, and he had not heard  Canadian Commander at Anniversary Service  This British official photograph was made on the western front on the  occasion of the great service held to mark the commencement of the fourth  year of the war.

Rogers and Miss  McNaughton, reopened for a new  term last Tuesday morning, a week  later than has been customary in  former years. The total enrollment  is now 46, of whom 26 are new  pupils.  More than usual interest attaches  to the opening this year by reason  of the fact that a new branch of  instruction has been added in the  agricultural class, in tbe preparation for which Mr. W. J. Austin the  newly - appointed instructor, has  been busy for the past week or so.  Although this sis an optional subject, it counts as a regular subject  in the High School course, and  should prove popular on account  of the interesting and highly practical nature of the instruction to be  imparted.  There may be a disposition on  the part of some lo regard this  new course as simply a training in  the elements of farming and therefore of little value to those who  have no intention of following  that occupation in later life. A  little reflection will show that this  idea is a very mistaken one.  Though the course naturally will  be of great value as a theoritical  basis for later work to those who  will make their living from the  cultivation of the soil, and as such  should be welcomed in an agricultural con.munity auch as we have  in this valley, the various branches  of study laid down can not but be  invaluable [to all from a purely  educational standpoint. Chemistry  and physics, for instance, which  form a large part of the course, are  but the systematic study of natural  phenomena which are going on  around us at all times. No one can  claim to be educated in the broadest sense of the word who can not  take an intelligent interest in these  things, and a knowledge of the elements of these subjects will prove  of use in almost any trade or profession the pupil will follow.  After the assignment of lessons,  the school was assembled in the  room fitted up for agricultural  work. The equipment at present  consists of several large tables,  chemical apparatus, milk tester  and surveying instruments.  The proposed course was outlined to the pupils by Mr. Austin  and Principal Rogers, and its purpose and value explained.  Mayor Sutherland also addressed the school, expressing his appreciation of the new agricultural  courae, and pointing aut the benefit it should be to the whole community and especially to those  students who took advantage of it.  He urged that all who could should  take the course. Boys and girls of  today, he said, had enormous advantages compared with the conditions under which many of their  parents obtained an education and  he was sure that none of them  would regret it if they adopted this  Pretty Local Wedding  An interesting wedding took  place last Saturday afternoon at  St. Michael's Church, when Daniel Currell, Kelowna representative  of the auditing firm of Crehan,  Martin ot Co., was married to Misa  Gladys May Bird, daughter of the  late R. Bird of Rutland and a neice  of Mr. and Mis. J. W. Jones.  The ceremony at which the Rev.  Archdeacon Greene officiated,  took place at 2 o'clock, there being  a considerable attendance of  friencle of both the bride and bridegroom.  The bride who was given away  by her uncle Mr. J. W. Jones, M.P.P  looked very charming in a dress of  rose silk, and carried a pretty bouquet of flowers. The bridesmaid  was Miss Ethelwyn Jones. Mr.  Drury Pryce acted as best man,  whilst Mr. Lawrence Blacknell  furnished the excellent music  which lent additional attractiveness  to the ceremony. The Bridal March  from Lohengrin, Mendelssohn's  Wedding March, " Intermezzo"  (Hollins), and "Pastorale"(Lemare)  were rendered at intervals.  After the ceremony a reception  was held at the horn eof the bridegroom's mother, on Cadder avenue  after which the happy couple left  by the ferry amidst a shower of  rice, confetti and old shoes on  their way to the coast.  New Cannery at Benvoulin  The Okanagan Canning Co., a  new concern in which Messrs.  Clarence Duncan and E. Woolsey  are the principals, commenced  operations last week at Benvoulin  and is now at work putting up tomatoes. The new factory is located on Mr. Duncan's property formerly used as a tobacco shed.  The building required but little alteration to adopt it to its new  purpose, and a new and compact  canning plant has been installed.  The management of the concern,  is in the hands of Mr. W. G. Sehell  and a conaiderable staff is busily  engaged in the work which is fast  becoming one of the big local industries.  optional subject.  It might be mentioned that Mr.  Austin will hold agricultural classes  at the High School on Monday,  Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. On Monday afternoon he  will instruct at Rutland; Tuesday  afternoon he will supervise the nature study and school garden  work at the public school.  Wednesday noon he will travel  by automobile to Vernon where  he will hold classes in the afternoon and on the two following  davs, returning to his home in  Kelowna for the week-end.  News of Near  Neighbours  The automobile excursion planned by the Vancouver Automobile  Club to come through the Okanagan this week has been called off.  This will be a great disappointment to many who have looked  forward to the visit of these coast  people, but more especially to  Penticton, which town has made  great preparations to entertain the  visitors. Amongst other things a  big "stampede" had been organized  and a "good roads" convention.  These are still to take place, however, for the Club lias made arrangements to run an excursion  on the Kettle Valley line to Penticton for to-day and to-orrotv.  R. Robertson, of Robertson,  Morris & Co., ot Vancouver, better  known in the Valley as the man  who led in the organization of the  Okanagan United Growers, has received a request from Ottawa asking him to go there to act on a  committee of the food controller's  department, to investigate the distribution of fruit and vegetables.  Membership on the committee he  will act on at Ottawa is an honoi-  ary position, without salary.  If the negotiations now in progress prove successful Kamloops  will soon have a free mail delivery  within the city limits.  The Revelstoke Board of Trade  is making overtures to the Provincial Government, through the  medium of the Miniater of Mines,  for a special grant of $20,000 with  which to continue to completion  this winter the work on the Big  Bend road in order to open up a  fine mineral area in that locality.  K. V. R. trains to and from the  Coast have been running much behind schedule for some days. Passengers say that poor fuel is the  cause. The fireman find it impossible to keep up steam, and stops  also have to be made to clean the  grates.  For the second time within two  months the C.P.R. at Summerland  has lost its agent through a drowning accident. During the month of  July Agent Kelly was drowned  while canoping near the wharf and  on Sunday morning last, R. C.  Barker, who was sent from Revelstoke to take Kelly'8 place was  himself found drowned at Penticton.  Mr. Baker had gone to Penticton  to meet his wife and family, who  were coming from the coast. He  had evedently caught his shoe in a  railway track, three feet from the  edge of the wharf, over which he  fell. The sole of his left shoe was  almost torn off, and bruises on  Barker's head showed that he had  struck a pile in falling, and was  probably rendered unconscious.  Have Not Lost a Gun  in Two Years  Since the beginning of the war  the British have captured I 17,776  prisoners, exclusive of natives taken prisoner in the African campaigns, many of whom have been  released, aaid Major-General F. B.  Maurice, director of military operations at the war office. The British  have lost to the enemy 51,088 men,  including Indian and native troops.  These figures take in all theatres  of war.  The British have captured 739  guns during the war and lost 133.  Of the guns lost 37 were re-captured and of the 96 remaining in the  enemies hands, 84 were lost by the  British on the west front early in  war.  "The British have not lost a  single gun on the west front since  April. 1915," said the general.  Mias McLaughlin was a passenger to Kamloops Monday.  There was a general returning  Monday of members of the teaching staff who had been away from  the city during the vacation which  has just ended. Arriving also were  two new teachers, Miss McGeer,  from Phoenix, who is taking the  place of MisB Barnhill, and Mis:  Wood, of New Westminster, who  takes the primary class in succession to Miss Thompson,  Fall Fair List of  a.

The Japanese Store  Phone 112  Fair a Factor in Agricultural Development  In urging people to support fairs  S. T. Simpson, of the University of  Missouri College of Agriculture,  says "No rural community can  hope to remain progressive without  some means of bringing before its  people the products of the community. Furthermore, no man can  hope to continue to make advancement in his chosen industry unless  he learns from other men interested in the same field of operation.  Farmers recognize now more than  ever before the importance of  mingling with their neighbors, exchanging ideas, making criticisms  and gathering new information.  "Fairs afford untold opportunities for those, who will attend.  There they meet as exhibitors in  competition and as spectators.  All learn to look at the fairs from  the educational viewpoint as well  as from the viewpoint of entertain-  ment or what they win in money  prizes as exhibitors. True the  money offered is a great inducement in the way of defraying  expenses, but many exhibitors  might well have as much money  in their pockets at the end of the  week by leaving their exhibits at  home. On the other hand, thoae  who exhibit take home a new  opinion of their own products,  and have established in their own  minds revised standards which will  aid them in selecting and preparing  exhibits fof the following year. In  addition every exhibitor, whether  a winner or loser, takes home more  or less advertising. Advertising  secured at fairs is considered of  the best as evidenced by the many  exhibitors and by the increased  business which has come to those  who exhibit. No breeder of purebred stock should neglect a single  opportunity to place it before the  public. The county fair is a good  place to begin.  "The livestock industry owes  much to the many fairs held  throughout the country. Much improvement in breeds has come as  a result of these public exhibitions  and ratings. Many have been en  couraged in the production of  better stock simply through the incentive gathered at the livestock  shows. No man who hopes to  continue as a producer of highclass  livestock can afford to miss a single  opportunity to attend livestock  shows. Unless he attends such  shows he loses sight of the correct  standards and gets' behind the  times. The fair circuit is the  school of the constructive breeder.  Few men have attained success as  breeders who have not been close  students of show ring standards  and awards. These men n.ust  necessarily become few because of  the rapid strides in breeding and  the increased competition.  He who neglects to make use of  his State, county or district fair not  only weakens his own position but  neglects to support a movement  which is vital to the State or community in which he lives On the  other hand, the public should  realize that nothing can do more  to encourage better breeding, feeding and management of livestock  than a successful fair. The fair is  just what the people make it. Ry  their attendance and support it  can be made a great factor in State  and community betterment. Without their support it must tell to  those few who do attend the story  of non-progressive, inactive com  monwealth."  Edited by Pioneer. Sep. 4th,   1917  The Leaders will hold a business  meeting shortly to make plans for  the coming year's work. It is very  important that all intending recruits  either fiom the Wolf Cubs or otherwise, should hand in their names  immediately, as we have to arrange  the different patrols and their  officers. We endeavour to keep  boys ol the same size in each  patrol as possible. We are losing  so many of our older boys that we  shall have several changes to make.  Scout George Mantle passed the  tests for his Ambulance badge before Dr. Keller last week, and scout  T. Taylor also repassed his  Rescuer's   badge before   ex-troop  der A. DuMoulin.  We publish the following article  by the Chief Scout in the August  Headquarters Gazette :-  "The Scout's Staff "  'The Scout's staff is a distinctive  feature about his equipment, and it  has its moral as well as its practical  uses. The essential point is that  this should be realized and appreciated by the Scoutmaster and  Commissioner. I remember when,  in pre-war days, I was attending a  review of the German cavalry, the  Emperor asked me what 1 thought  of their lances. I ventured to express the opinion that they were  too long to be effective in war, and  that a shorter lance, snch as we use  lor pigsticking in India, would be  more practical. He smiled and  explained 'That is true-but in peace  time we are breeding the spirit in  our men. 1 find that with every  inch you put on a man's lance you  give him an extra foot of self-  esteem.' Well, although the idea  is 'made in Germany,' there is  something in it.  The Scout's staff had, as a matter  of fact, been in the hands of the  scouts before that conversation,  and I had already realized its value  in the direction of giving smartness  to a body of scouts and a completeness to the individual which distinguished him from other boys and  gave him that esprit de corps which  is so effective a step to   efficiency  There are historical associations  connected with it which give the  staff a sentimental value if we look  back to the first British Boy Scouts  of Cuhulain armed with staves, the  pilgrims or "good turn trampera"  with their cockleshells and staves,  the 'prentice bands of London with  their cloth yards and their staves,  the merry men of Robin Hood with  bows and quarter staves, down to  the present day mountaineers, war  scouts, and explorers; these all afford a precedent which should  have its romance and meaning to  the boy if properly applied.  The ceremony of enrolment of  the scout can and should be made  a moment of impressive feeling for  the boy when he is invested with  the hat and staff that mark the  scout, and which equip him for his  pilgrimage on that path where he  "turns to the right and keeps  straight on." The officer who fails  to use such opportunity is missing  one of the most important chances  in the scout life of his boy. He  should expect of the boy a reverence and affection for his staff, such  as a swordman for his sword, or  the hunter for his rifle. Let the  scout individualise his own staff,  even to decorate it in his own way  if he likes, but let him keep to his  staff. To jumble all staves into a  bundle and put then away in a  corner after parade, or, worse, to  let them get lost and thus r xcuse  their appearance on parade is to  neglect a valuable help to the  moral training of the lad. All this,  of cource, is quite apart from the  actual practical uaes of the staff;  with those I am dealing more fully  in the columns of the Scout."  TOMMY FETED IN ITALY  Milan's Warm   Reception   to   British  Contingent for Front  An Italian correspondent writes:  "Have you seen the English SoldiersV  Such was the common question you  heard In Milan on all sides when ths  English were the talk of the city.  They were passing through the station, and sometimes they Btopped a  few hours. Then the rumour spread  that English contingents were coming  to our front to fight with our soldiers.  One day the rumour became a certainty. English sjldiers marched from  the station to the Cathedral square.  They had to wait for a few hours and  wished to get a glimpse of the city.  They were happy, but much more so  wers the Milanese.  Our gallant Allies were cheered and  feted all along the route. From windows and balconies hadkercliiefs and  flags were waved to them; in the Cathedral square a crowd gathered and  shouted "Long live England!" They  asked the soldiers to sing "Ood Save  the King." Then there was a loud demand for "Tipperary." The soldiers  good-humouredly sang and smiled and  returned thanks, shaking hands right  and left. None of them could speak  Italian but all said to the girls: "Bela  tosa." How and where they had learned the Milanese expression for "Pretty girl" is still one of the mysteries  of the war.  Their return to the station was a  triumphal march.    I saw them there  while  they   were   waiting   for  their  train.. Men and women were presenting them wilh Anglo-Italian dictlonar-  postcards,   packets   of chocolate,  lfarettes, illustrated papers, and so  'orth.   Many of them scribbled a few  lnes on the cards and gave them to  e to post.   I was very pleased to do  hem this little service.  An estimate shows of the eighty  or more licensed hotels in Vancouver it is probable that two thirds  will close between October 1it and  the end of the year as a result of  prohibition coming into force.  The Austrian budget for 1916-17  .hows a deficit of 344.000,000  crowns, compared to a deficit of  49,000,000 crowns in the pr< ceed-  ing year. Two of the largest items  of expenditure are 1,761,000,000  crowns for interest on war loans,  and 1,650,000,000 crowns for the  support of soldieis' I... rilies.  Special and direct war expenditure  are not included in the budget.  KING'S SURPRISE VISIT  Lively  Welcome by  Girls at  London  Puce Factory  After having Been what the modern  "War-girl" could accomplish in the  munition areas in the north of England, the King expressed a wish to see  some of the London girls at work. An  unceremonious visit to a London fuse  factory was accordingly arranged. The  girls were charmed with the King;  the King was delighted with the girls.  Their interest in the work was so  keen, they were bo bright and healthy, and cheerful and industrious  withal, that nobody could resist their  enthusiasm. At first, naturally, they  were apt to be a little shy, but the  King quickly put them at their ease.  Upstairs in one large, airy room 800  young women in blue blouses and  saucy little ultramarine mob-caps,  were putting the finishing touches to  thousands of shining brass fuse-caps  when the King walked quietly in.  At his arrival they were as quiet as  mice save for the "tap-tapping" of  their little hammers and the whizz of  the machinery overhead. The King  walked from bench to bench watchinr  Trtth growing Interest their quick, ex  part work. At the end of the rooi  ns paused to look back over the bur  aoane. This was the signal they wen  all waiting for. Each girl raised the  brass capyshe held in her hand aud  brought ir down with a crash upon  tba bench before her. Then the fuse-  cap chorus of welcome broke out. The  Whole battery sprang Into action until  the noise of it was well-nigh deafening. Shop after bIiop took it up, upstairs and downstairs, and the King  passed out into tl.e fresh air wilh a  rattling volley following him. He was  amused���and delighted.  Insurance of Men io Khaki  Mr. C. G. Buck; local agent foi  the Confederation Life Association,  points out an interesting statement  of Mr. William Wallace, the Association's inspector of eastern agencies,   in   the " Monetary   Times."  " No company," says Mr. Wallace, " will insure a man who is in  khaki, except perhaps in the medical, dental and nursing branches  of the service, so that men who  are eligible for military service,  through conscription, should get  their policies at once while they  are still in civilian clothes. Just  as soon as a man puts on the uniform he is practically uninsurable.  Shortly after the declaration of  war, notwithstanding that their  policies contained clauses which  entitled them to charge extra premiums in case the policyholder went  into active military service, most  of the Canadian companies voluntarily decided to carry all risks  without extra charge incurred  through policies taken out prior to  the outbreak of war. It was agreed  however, that in the case of all  new business, some extra charge  should be made, and the extra  charge was fixed at $50 per annum  per $1000. This extra premium  was later raised in the case of most  of the companies to $150 per  $1,000 . . . Those conscripted  who took out policies before the  war, will not have to pay any extra premiums; those who have  taken them out since the outbreak  of war, or who will take out policies before they are actually in  khaki, will pay the usual premium  charges, plus under our present  policies, an amount  not to exceed  50 per annum for each $1,000  of the risk; in the event of this  extra premium not being paid the  insurance is reduced to $150 for  the first year, $250 the second  year, and so on."

A case inpolnt was that of  ��� British pilot who flew at an enemy  machine head-on, manoeuvring at the  laat moment Just In time to avoid a  collision. One of the wings of the  British plane, however, scraped one  Ot tne German's wings, whereupon the  latter began to fall. The British pilot  dived after him and was startled to  asa the German's damaged wings fly  completely off while the tail dragged  as If Its back were broken. Whether  fsultinesB In so many German machines is due to the speed with which  Ithe Germans have to turn them out to  meet the British offensive or to the  lack of suitable material is a matter  of no concern to the Allies.  DIED FOR SCIENCE  Doctor Wanted to Study Sensations of  Airman  An inquest waa held in Norfolk,  Snr, on Captain James Ferguson Bt.  John Annesley, R.A.M.C., and Second  Lieutenant Charles Leslie Beumont,  JB..F.0., who were killed while flying  U an asroplans. Captain Elliott said  captain Annesley told him It was very  difficult to judge the effect of flying  ion the nerves until one had had per.  {tonal experience. He asked If there  'would be any objection to him going up as a passenger, and was told  that there would be none, as he would  bo doing it in his official capacity.  Captain Annesley was a doctor; 52  years of uge, and had formerly practised in Ireland. It was slated by an  air mechanic that the machine did a  tbrht bank which developed into a  spinning nose dive. On going to the  ���wreckage ho found Uie doctor thrown  clear, but Captain Beumont was pin-  nod underneath tho machine. A ver-  Idiot of accidental death was returned.

The coincidence of the opening  of the hunting season with the  Labor Day holiday had the usual  result thia year of tempting many  to get out after the elusive deer,  or the more modest duck. Deer  are reported to be fairly plentiful  this year, though it is not stated  just where this refers to. Consequently there were many who  tramped hundreds and thousands  of miles (seemed like it any way I)  over the hills without seeing a  track. One or two were luckier  and brought home the meat. Know,  lea, the jeweler, we hear, has become Knowles tbe Nimrod (a  mighty hunter I). J. B. went out to  slay, and verily he slew���a fine big  buck which must have been nearer  300 pounds than 200.

Major T. C. Cal-  laghan, D.C.M., was killed while leading his men against the Germans.  "Casey" Callaghan. as he was nicknamed, was well-known In both Eastern and Western Canada, and his earlier exploits during the Boer War  were widely written about, both in  Great Britain, the United States and  Canada. In his scouting in South  Africa, where he did valuable work,  he adopted the old Indian tactics,  which ha was so familiar with, and  was marvellously successful In everything he undertook. In his duy Callaghan bad no superior in the West  as a cattleman, horseman, rifle shot  and hunter. When the Boer War  broke out he applied for enlistment,  and Anally landed In South Africa with  tbe men from tba West, and advanced  rapidly, becoming In a short time a  famous scout. He was one of the  best known scouts from Canada, Major  Ross being tbe other.  His Most Notable Feat  The young Canadian, who was bom  and brought up in Toronto, to trek  West later on, first attracted attention when he surprised eight Boers in  a farmhouse and captured them single-  banded. He was soon promoted to the  rank of oorporal, and held tbat rank  when he first came under tlie attention of General French. General  French having received information  that 400 Boer transport carts could be  easily captured, called for volunteers  to go through the enemy's lines to  General Smilh-Dorrlen's army, a distance of 70 miles. Nine men offered  to carry the despatch, each by different routes. Of the nine, five were  captured, three were shot dead, and  Corp. Callaghan was the only one '.3  get through after a desperate effort.  Gen. Smith-Dorrlen sent out a detachment and captured the transports.  For this feat tbe corporal was promoted by Gen, French to the rank of  lieutenant, aud was awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal.  A Glorious Record  After a short period he assumed  command, at the request of Gen. Kitchener, of a body of surrendered  Boers, who wished to become scouts.  This body of men, who did good service, were known as Callaghan's  Scouts. The late scout was present at  five large engagements in tlie Boer  War. He was one of the Canadians  present at tlie battle ot Hart's River.  He was despatch bearer to Gen. Kitchener at Diamond Hill, and was ono  of the Imperial army escort whieli  went out to negotiate terms of surrender by Gen. Botha. The late officer had charge of. the sacking operations of Gen. Botha's home, when that  officer would not surrender. A sli.nt  time before the close of the war ho  was promoted to the rank of captain,  though at the time he was little more  than a boy.  After the close of the war he settled in San Francisco, where he became an expert as an aeronaut. In  the earthquake lie escaped' from the.  ruins of an hotel In which forty people were killed.
