Any doubts as to where  the fire might be (it being the first  alarm sounded under the new  system of signals) were quickly  dispelled by a glance towarda the  city, where the sky was lurid with  the reflection ot the conflagration,  and as citizens adorned in carpet  slippers and coats hastily put on  over pyjamas were hurrying toward  the scene, the Brigade with their  usual promptness were throwing  water onto an old shed just behind  Fummerton'a store, the property of  Mr. Johnson. How the fire started  at auch an hour is a mystery, seeing that the place was not in use.  Thanks to the efforts put forth the  damage, generally speaking, was  slight.although some inconvenience  was caused by the destruction of  about twenty feet of the telephone  company's cable. The showrooms  belonging to the Lakeview Hotel  were also badly scorched. No insurance was carried.

The Troop paraded on Saturday  last with colours, lo see Assistant  Scout Master and Mrs. Ktown off.  Troop Leader DuMoulin, on behalf  of. the Troop, presented Mrs.  Keown with a bunch of violels���|  and that we will soon have the ap-  poilimity of welcoming them back  again is the sincere   wish of us all.  We are getting ahead with the  basket ball practises and everyone  semis to enjoy the game. Only  those scouts will be permitted to  play basket ball who attend their  patrol and troop meetings regularly  as it must not be forgotten that we  are a troop of scouts and not a  basket ball club.  The provincial census returns  for the year ending last June, have  now been published, and while the  standing of ths various troops in  connection with the competition  for the Lieut. Governor's shield is  not shown, we presume that  Kelowna occupies about the same  place it held last year. The Lieut.  Governor's shield, as we have already reported, was won by the  First Troop of B. C. Sea Scouts,  Vancouver. In numbers Kelowna  came third with 48 scouts on the  roll: New Westminster and Victoria Third Troops ere first and  secondwith 84 and 53 on their  rolls respectively. There were 70  Troops registered in the Province  altogether, including Dawson troop  in the Yukon, and 6 lone patrols,  but of these 60 troops no less than  26 have been disbanded temporarily owing to lack of officers,  nearly all of whom are serving in  the expeditionary forces.  There were 1142 scouts in the  province altogether as against 1079  for the same period in 1915, but  the figures for 1916 do not include  some 700 boys who are still scouts,  and who belong to the above 26  disbanded troops, so that head  quarters claim we'have 1,800 more  boy scouts in B. C.  There are 9 who had more second (lass scouts than Kelowna.  Kelowna had 17, but Victoria 3rd  and the 12th troop, Vancouver,  who were first and second in this  respect, had 45 and 2 7 second class  scouts respectively. We had four  first class scouts, and in this respec-  tied for second place with Summerland, Victoria 3rd and 1st B.C.  Sea Scouts. Chesterfield of North  Vancouver was first with 15.  There were 9 troops ahead of  Kelownn, who had more scouts in  their troops holding proficiency  badges. All our badges were distributed amongst 9 scouts. Victoria  3rd and Ladner were first and second in this respect with 36 and  19 scouts holding badges respectively.  As to the number held, we rank  third in the list with 67 badges.  Victoria 3rd is first with 159 and  Chesterfield second with 94. Summerland and Seymour troop, Vancouver are fourth with 57 each.  The Seymour troop is the troop of  which Mr. Thomas is scout master.  For the number of scouts holding  All Round Cords, Grade A, we  rank 3rd place, tied with Chesterfield and the 1st B.C. Sea Scouts.  Victoria 3rd -is first with 8. Seymour troop, Vancouver second  with 5, and we have four scouts  with this distinction. For scouts  holding the All Round Cord, Grade  B, we tied with Chesterfield and  North Vancouver for second place.  Summerland is first, having three  scouts with these cords. We have  two. For the number of King's  Scouts we rank 2nd, tied with  Summerland. Chesterfield, North  Vancouver is first with 12 King's  Scouts, while we have 3. As this  year we shall be losing several of,  our 9 scouts who hold our badges,  it is up to those who are left behind to do their utmost to retain  the positition we now  hold.  The rules made applicable to  those who were called "Slackers"  in our troop, now govern troops  all over the province, so that these  figures will certainly show a difference for the census return ending  ���June of this year. We will publish  a portion of these new rules each  week so that you may cut them  out and paste them in your diaries. What we are chiefly concerned with just now are the rules relating to second class scouts, so we  give you them first.  SECOND CLASS SCOUT.  A Second Class Scout must pass  an examination in at least 5 ol the  tests required in First Class Work,  within six months from date of becoming a second class scout, and  within 12 months from the aforementioned date, he must pass a  full examination in the first class  work.  ALTERNATIVE  A Second-Class Scout must pass  examination in at least two of the  Proficiency Badge Tests within  one year of becoming a second  class scout and at least two more  proficiency tests must be passed  each succeeding year, until the  time that he becomes a King's  Scout; exepting the year during  which he is working to pass the  first class test.  Note : A second class scout may  only be awarded 6 proficiency  badges.  (See rule 37.)  How can you tell the ' age of a  fowl)  By the teeth.  But fowls have none.

Thus the B.C. pack  of No. I beats them all in open  market. He did not consider the  apple business over done, it was  like all other industries, the weakest would go to the wall, and the  way to make a real sirccess of ii  was to grow as manv No. I as possible. He maintained the apple  crop and price run as it were in a  cycle of 18 years, we were at the  low ebb as regards price which  would continue to iise for the  next five years, it would then be at  its best, giving dates and figures to  prove his theory, during the. low  tide. Hundreds of orchards were  neglected in Ontario hence in 191 I  they had a poor crop with none to  ship, so prices were good for us.  Pruning, he said, was more easily  overdone than otherwise, still it  was necessary to let in the light,  as it was light that gave the highest quality. Summer pruning he  considered good, as then one can  help both quantity and quality, by  being judicious. It was better to  have a long limb of good fruit,  than two short ones of poor fruit.  As regards growing between the  trees he advocated it, he always  did it himself, potatoes, onions,  carrots etc, with an alternate cover  crop as recommended before.  Mr' Ben Hoy, was the next  speaker, his subject being Orchard  Diseases and Pests, which was  very instructive and interesting,  what with the biter and the sucker, the green and wooly aphis, the  oyster shell, peach tree borer, the  pear and cherry slug, not to men  tion deai codlin moth���still, there  was one thing in our favor, we  had no scab here, which was con  soling. After the way he gave us  the black leaf 40, quick lime, whale  oil soap, arsenate of lead, lime su  plrjte, &c, we would readily have  gone home and grubbed the whole  bunch out had he not told us that  the government would at least  spray the orchards once this season and keep them in quarantine  till we had fruit to ship. After an  swering a lot of questions the  meeting was brought to a close by  a hearty vote of thanks to the  speakers.
