 tdrfisifUiiv lasmsh  Vlotaria, B.O  %d#ti0M  Uttfifb  VOL. X.   NO. 26.  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, MAY 16, 1918.-4 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  City Park Will Be Much  Used This Summer  Several   Organizations   Make  Application to Council for  Permission to Use It  That the city park will be much  in demand during the coming sum-  mer waa indicated by the different  applications made at the council  meeting Monday evening (or the  privilege of making uae of it on  different occasions. First came the  newly-formed Athletic Club which  aought a ground for baseball, football and other sports. Mr. L. V.  Rogers, who ia president of the  club, appeared on behalf of the  boya. The council expressed their  readiness to allow the boys the  use of the park. The choice of  ground lav between the open  alretch facing Abbott street and  the area further back towards the  lake cleared some years ago for  the purpose of a ball ground. It  was stated, however, that the latter  was as yet far from being in a  suitable condition for games. It  was loose and aandv and would  need a considerable expenditure  of money to create a good surface.  A firmer soil would have to be  hauled on to it in places or some  other means taken to i mprove its  condition. The field fronting on  Abbott street although rough could  be more easily fixed, and it was  decided lo sanction an expenditure  of up to fifty dollars to put it into  shape. Mr. Rogers thought that  the boya themselves could be organized to help with the work.  Mr. Rogers also informed the  council that the Chautauqua would  be held in Kelowna during the  week commencing June 5th, and  he had been asked to apply for  permission for them to erect their  tent in the park. The council  granted the request upon the understanding that all work and arrangements would be submitted  for the approval of the Parka Committee.  Aid. Knowles reported having  been requested by a number of  ladies to obtain the council's permission for the use of the pink for  n carnival In aid ol the Canadian  Patriotic Fund, nnd to charge an  entrance fee to the park upon thai  occasion.  It was agreed that the park  should be turned over to the patriotic carnival committee on Saturday, the 6th of July.  A letter was read from Mr. R. E,  Denison suggesting that the council grant special rates to water consumers for water used for garden  purposes this season. There waa  a general discussion on this proposal which threatens to become a  hardy annual, and moat of the old  objections were gone into chief of  which were the impossibility without extra meters of distinguishing  between water used for irrigation  and doniesiic use, and also the  overtaxing of the pump which was  already working at nearly full  capacity. The extra water pumped  would mean a large increase in  the consumption of fuel and consequently a probable increase in  the loss on the operation of the  plant for the year. It was decided  that the requeat could not be  granted.  The secretary of the Convalescent Soldiers' com<nittee of Vernon  wrote suggesting that as convalescent soldiers from all parts of the  Okanagan were being treated at  the Vernon Jubilee Hospital, and  special cota and other requisites  must be provided for these patients  the citizens of Kelowna should  take an interest in raising funds  with which to purchase these supplies. The clerk was instructed to  reply that an effort would be made  to find a suitable organization to  take the matter in hand.  The police report for April showed a total of six miscellaneous  cases before the magistrate and  fines paid of $40.  The samples of dairy milk collected and tested were as follows:  D. C. Middleton, 4.0; Norman  Day, 3.9; J. Birch 3.8.  Aid. Meikle reported that the  Fire Committee had purchased a  second-hand lawn-mower for cutting the grass on the fire hall property. He also stated that acting  upon the advice of the building  inspector certain repairs had been  made to the building next the thea  tre in order to make it safe, and  that the cost would be charged  against the owner of the properly.  Aid. Mantle reported having investigated a claim made by Mr. S.  V. Bray for the construction of a  culvert across the road to supply  irrigation water to his property. It  was stuled lhat surveyors' levels  would have to be taken owing to  the nature of ground for which  Mr. Bray had intimated that he ex  peeled the council to pay. The  council decided that they had no  liability in the matterjand declined  to take further action.  Aid. Mantle stated that a sug-  gestioh had been made by the  road foreman to purchase a single  horse mower for cutting the grass  along the streets. Alter some discussion the alderman undertook  to obtain full particulars as to the  price and cost of operation of the  machine and the cost of doing the  same work by manual labor.  Just which committee was responsible for the expense of planting and care of trees alontr. the  streets was the subject of a little  discussion introduced by Aid. J.  Knowles. He- aaid he understood  that the practice heretofore had  been for the Parks committee to  supervise the work and for the cost  to be charged to the Public Works  committee.  Aid. Mantle stated that he had  refused to pass the accounts for  the reason that he had nothing to  do with the supervision of the  work done, and he considered  that work of this nature came within the jurisdiction of the Parks  committee and should be charged  to that department.  Hia Worship the Mayor .stated  that for several years the planting  and care of shade trees had been  done by the Parka committee and  the cost charged to the' Public  Works department, but he believed  this method had been authorized  by a resolution of a previous  council.  The clerk undertook to search  the minutes later to decide the  point.  Aid. Lloyd-Jones reported having made satisfactor) arrangements  with the canneries for the disposal  of their waste water, the B.C. Evaporators being given permission to  place a culvert across Cawston  avenue.  The Mayor, wilh Aid. Mantle,,  Vleikle, Lloyd-Jones and Rattenbury, were appoimed a commiltee  to act on the Court of Revision to  be held Monday, May 27, at 10  o'clock in the morning  Aid. Knowles reported that some  members of the Parks committee  had expressed the opinion that  potatoes should be grown in certain parts of the park with a view  lo clearing up the land, but there  would be difficulty in .obtaining  the water. In view of the cost involved it was decided to take no  action.

Calder  of Kelowna.  Kelowna Sends Big Sum  for VIC! Work  Local Subscriptions Total Well  Over $3,400 - Far Exceeds  Objective Aimed At  Reports from all over the Dominion show that the big campaign for  funds for the Y.M.C.A. has met  wilh remarkable success, and that  the objective of two and a quarter  millions will be well over-subscribed. In Kelowna and diatrict the  reception accorded the canvassers  was a surprise even to the more  sanguine ones, w'hen the sum to  be aimed at was placed at $3,000  this, it must be confessed, was regarded by the committee as entirely out of reach. When the first  day's collection realized nearly  half of this sum, however, the objective did not look so far off, and  the collectors were spurred on to a  wonderful burst of energy. The  second day's work doubled that  aum, and placed the committee  within easy distance of the goal,  According to the latest returns,  which are not yet complete, the  total subscription is approximately  $3400. Of this $3220 has been  deposited in the bank.  In addition to this fourteen boys  have joined the "Earn and Give  Club" whereby they have pledged  themselves to earn and give $10 to  the Y.M.C.A. before the 1st of  October.  The committee in charge of the  campaign, L. V. Rogers, E. D. Braden, P. DuMoulin, J. B. Knowles  and Joseph Ball, wish to express  their appreciation ofthe generosity  shown by the public at la.ge in  contributing so willingly to this  fund, and also to express their  thanks to all who assisted in canvassing the district, including the  canvassers and those who supplied  cars. In particular the committee  wish to mention Mr.'D. D. Campbell who motored Lieut. Whittaker  to Vernon and Mr. Ballard for the  use of the Palace hotel by the committee.  Collections in Kelowna have far  exceeded those ot other towns in  the district. Vernon's contribution  was approximately $2,250 ; Armstrong $1,800 ; Enderby $1,200;  Summerland $1,600 ; Penticton  $1,300 ; Grand Forks $1,600;  Kamloops $4,000.  Some of these figures it should  be stated are not altogether complete, but they are approximately  correct.  Opposition Leader Here  Mr. W. J. Bowser arrived at noon  to-day from Vernon in company  with Mr. J. W. Jones, M.P.P., who  met him at Vernon yesterday. A  reunion of citizens and political  followers generally is to be held at  the Palace Hotel to-night.  A frightful collision occurred  last Friday in Vancouver between  a motor hose-wagon and a street  car. Four firemen were killed and  one badly injured.  Michigan has a surplus of 3,000,-  000 bushels of potatoes to dispose  of and has started a campaign to  sell them in the large cities. County  food administrators will be in  charge of the sale wilh prominent  citizens as salesmen.  Cancellation qf France's financial  obligations to the United Stales is  proposed in a resolution by Senator Kenyon, of Iowa. The resolution provides that "all obligations  of the Republic of France to the  United States of America for  moneys borrowed or funds advanced since the commencement of the  present war, including interest  thereon be and are herebv cancelled."  Anarchy is spreading in the  Ukraine as a result of the German  action in overthrowing the government and replacing it with another  one. There have been riots at  several points and during a serious  outbreak in Kiev a large number  of persons were killed. An attempt was made to kill the Ukrainian premier, who, however, escaped with slight wounds.  Rutland News  (Prom oar own rv-rr.--i-ind.st).  The Young Peoples' club met at  the school house on Friday the I Oth  inst. The meeting, which was a  literary one, opened with the sing-  of "Keep lhe Home Fires Burning."  After a few items of business which  included the election of Miss Magee  Miss Alda McDonald and Master  Earnest Homuth to the office of  reporters, there was a debate on the  following resolution; "Resolved  that country life has more advantages than city life." The debaters  for the affirmative were Miss Amy  Fleming and Mr. Fitzpatrick, those  for the negative were Miss Magee  and Mr. Alva Geen. The judges  were Miss Kathleen Campbell, Mr.  Lionel Wanlas and Miss Pennington. A number of good points  were put forward on each side, but  the judges were unanimously in  the opinion that the affirmative had  the strongest and more convincing  arguments.  The editor, Mr. Ralph Campbell  the read the "Tatler" the most  conspicuous number of which was  a pleasing little farewell ditty to  Mr. Wanless who leaves for Victoria shortly to uphold the honor  of the old flag. (We all wish him  God speed and a safe return.  It was decided to have sixteen  copies of the "Tatler" typewritten  for sale amongst members and  friends. The meeting closed by  the singing of the National Anthem.  The next meeting, which will be  a patriotic one, is to be held on  Friday, Mav 24th at 8 p.m.  Mr. Duncan McGregor who has  been visiting his parents for a few  weeks, left on Monday for his  home in the east.  Two Rutland young men. Mr. L.  Wanless and Mr. C. McGregor, who  had notice to report for duty at  military headquarters, left early this  week for Victoria.  The Girla' Enterprise Club will  siee'r, next Tuesday evening at Mrs.  A. J. Clever's home.  The Presbyterian and Methodist  Sunday Schools held a Union Service last Sunday (Mothers' Day) in  the Methodist Church. Rev. A. C.  Campbell gave an appropriate address. A collection was taken for  the Y.M.C.A.  At the meeting of lhe Rutland  Women's Institute last Thursday,  the "Grandmothers" had entire  charge of the programme, and the  record attendance of 36 members  and 14 visitors proved that Grandmas are popular. Mrs. S. A. Craig  (aged 79) contributed two items  on the programme, Mrs. Wilson  and Mrs. Elliott gave readings,  Mrs. McGregor and Mra. Fleming  sang old songs and all the Grandmothers joined in singing about  "Grandfather Clock." The moat  popular item was a song by Mr,  Martin (a great grandfather), "Old  Time."  Mr. Jas. Harvey, sr., left ihis  morning for a visit to Indian Head.  He waa accompanied by Mrs. J. M.  Harvey, who goes on to Toronto.  Delegates from all parts of the  Okanagan are to meet thia afternoon in the Board of Trade room  in connection with the coming convention of the Western Canada  Irrigation Association at Nelson in  July. The purpose of the meeting  is to make preparations for that  convention nnd to draw up a tentative programme. Mr. R J. C.  Stead is the acting secretary  The city of Vancouvt r lias  inaugurated a "civic goat fur d" lo  which already over $2000 ha< been  subscribed. The idea is to pn l-,r. -  and import milk goats from I 'xlifo -  nia for sale to householders The'  will be landed in Vancouv r for  $15 per head.  According to Dr Newell Dwighl  Hillis, who is stumping the country  against Germany, the K iter's  minions had their plan for world  control figured down to the finest  point. Secret service men who  raided the home of former German  Consul Bopp found documents indicating that Bopp was slated to  become governor-general of British  Columbia, and E. H. von Schack  was to have been tax collector and  treasurer.  Formers Slow tn Apply  fnr "SIS." Boys  If Help Not Secured Here in  B. C. Boys will be Sent on  to Prairies  Thar British Columbia farmers  are alow in making application for  boys recruited in the "Soldiers of  lhe Soil" movement is the substance  of a statement just issued by Mr. J.  H. Beatty, associate provincial  superintendent of <he "S.O.S" who  adds that the only chance for the  local farmer to secure assistance  from this source is by immediate  application to the headquarters in  in the agricultural department in  Victoria. The demand for more  boys for work east of the Rockies  is, Mr. Beattie says, still persistent  and unless British Columbia farmers make application now the  officers of the "S.O.S." can not be  expected to hold the boya from  taking positions on the prairies. It  is desirable, however, that the  B. C. farmers and fruit {growers  should have firat place with respect  to these boys. Even if the help is  not required until late in the season  the present is the only time to apply.  Those boys who are not applied  for in the near future will doubtless  go to the prairies.  Germans Preparing  for Another Drive  Sinister silence spreads along the  battle line while the Germans are  preparing a third and perhaps the  biggest thrust. Although the battlefields are unusually dry, the armies  aie curiously inactive. Six weeks  have passed since the combined  drive was checked on both sides  of the Somme. Comparatively  little ground haa been won on the  Lys during the past four weeks.  Yet more than one hundred and  fifty German divisions have been  used and Hindenbuig's quick decision promise has defaulted. Hin-  denburg is reported as concentrating the empire's entire output of  brain, brawn and machinery.  A fire at the fishing community  of Steveston wiped out Tuesday  nearly half a million dollars' worth  of property.  Bank Hoofs Will Be  Changed  Comn.encing with Tuesday, June  4th, a change is to be made in the  banking hours throughout Canada,  and consequently in the hours of  the three local banks. The new  hours during which the banks will  be open to the public are from  9.30 a.m. to 2.30 p.m., and on  Saturdays from 9.30 to noon  The new plan has been adopted  by the Bankers' Association in  consequence of the serious depletion of staffs owing to enlistment,  and the necessity of getting through  the daily routine a little earlier.  It is interesting to note in this  connection that the three largest  banks in Canada have each contributed more than 1,000 men  to the army and recent draft regulations are drawing still more  heavily upon their forces.  The new hours will be observed  during the period covered by the  " Daylight Saving " scheme.  Minister of Agriculture  Elected  The Hon. E. D. Barrow who last  Friday appealed to his constituency at Chilliwack following his  elevation to the cabinet as Minister  of Agriculture, was elected by a  substantial majority over his opponent. It is stated that the Hon.  Mr. Barrow is shortly to pay a  visit to the Okanagan.  Further reductiona in the meat  rations in the old country have  been found necessary.  Arrangements are now being  made for the issue of chevrons  indicating the length of service of  soldiers who have been overseas.  The Coughlan shipyards at Vancouver were burnt out yesterday  throwing 2,000 men out of employment. The damage is estimated  at two million dollars.  The city of Berlin has been ordered to produce forthwith 40,000  complete second-hand suits for  war workera, principally those engaged in railway and farming work.  It ia to be a " voluntary surrender  against a small payment," but warning is given that if the clothing ia  not forthcoming it will be taken  by force. This applies especially  to persons whoso social position  warrants the assumption that their  wardrobes are well stocked.  Hi*****M  IONIAN SERENADERS  AT CHAUTAUQUA  IONIAN   SLill-.N VlrKlis.

Makes Appeal to the  Householder  Mr. Henty B Thompson, chairman of the Canada Food Board, in  a statement issued last week, urged  that as a patriotic dutv the regulations of the Food Board relative  to public eating places and those  now governing the manufacture of  biscuits, cake, ice cream, fitc,  should be observed voluntarily by  householders. It is necessary lhal  his should be done, Mr. Thomson  stated, if Canada was to do net  utmost to send overseas those  supplies which were so greatly  needed.  Mr. Thompson said thit tome  misunderstanding had occurred as  to the confectionery products  which il is now illegal to manufacture for sale. The list is as ful-  ows: Producis known as fresh or  puff pastry ; doughnuts or crullers;  biscuits or cake known as Scotch  bread or cake.; fancv almond  macaroons or like products containing more than 50 per cent. "I  cane sugar; marshmallow which  contains more than 20 pounds < f  cane sugar to a 60 pound batch o  marshmallr-w ; crlte or biscuits  having on the exterior products  made wholly or in part of cane  sugar or rilled with producis of  cane sugai or with shortening,  except jams, jellies and pure oi  compounded fruit.  Reports received from all parts  of Canada indicate that tbe Food  Board will have the fullest cooperation of the trade in carrying  out the regulations.  Speaking at Regina on Saturday  last w lii regard to Food Conservation niatlers, Mr. J. D. McGregor,  western representative of the Can*  ada pood Board, stated that an appeal wou'd be made to all organizations conducting social functions  at which food is served, whether  for patriotic purposes or otherwise,  to conform strictly with the regulations governing hotels and restaurants. 11 such an appeal is made  we feel confident lhat it will meet  with the entire approval and support of everyone who has at heart  the welfare of our armies overseas.  Summer brings wilh it numberless picnics and other out of door  enteitainments at which refreshments are served. The mainstay  at most of these is the ever popular  sandwich in one form or anothrr,  although of course their use is nat  by any means restricted to outdoor  functions. When we consider that  one of the main objects of tie  regulations referred to is the conserving of wheat flour bread, it  must be admitted that the sandwich  is really a most extravagant article  of food. There are, however, plenty  of substitutes which can and should  be used instead. All that is required is the exercise of a little thought  and ingenuity on the part ofthe refreshment committees.  The people of British Columbia  should not wait to be appealed to  on this scote. Our various socir I  ies and organizations, patriotic and  otherwise, should take the lend in  the matter nnd announce that all  refreshments served at future enter-  tai menta of any kind will be War'  lunches, dinners or suppers. This  province was not behindhand in  supplying men for the fighting forces and we are not to lag behind  now when it is necessary to make  sacrifices (which after all are small  enough) to supply the fighting  forces for our men and those of  our Allies.  Surely no one who views this  matter from the standpoint of put  riotism and loyally to the men who  are fighting our batiles will consul  er lhe Food Board's regulations as  constituting a hardship. As a mat  let of fact we should be ready and  eager to go them one better where  ever possible and of our own accord do anything and everything  within our power to bring about  the th sired result.  Caribou Meat to Offset  Present Shortage  Orders for  Local  Scouts  *W�� PREPARKtf*     Kelowna Troop  Troop First;   Self Last  Edited by  Pioneer. May 14, 1918  B.C. Will Grow Seed  For Root Crops  Three hundred and twenty acres  of land in British Columbia have  already been sown this year for the  production of seeds for root crops,  in 1917 no more than 75 acres  were doing duty in this connection.  The satisfactory advance noted in  a most vital branch of agriculture  is a tribute to the climate of British  Columbia, and augurs well for the  future of the industry which may  reasonably be expected to assume  such proportions as will not only  remove the dependency of this  Dominion in the matter of seeds  on the United States and United  Kingdom, but will enable her to  enter the competitive markets with  her own products for sale.  In the opinion of Prof. P. A. Boving of the University of British  Columbia and A. McMeans of the  Ottawa department of agriculture  there is a really excellent outlook  for the industry both on Vancouver  Island and in many other sections  of the province. That British Columbia may look forward to attaining the proud position of seed  garden of the world does not strike  them as the least bit extravagant,  with the machinery provided under  the Seed Protection Act, passed  last session, it is expected that the  industry, so far as it has progressed,  will get that meed ol protection  which is absolutely essential if the  province is to live up to the reputation it has ahead} achieved in seed  production. The production of  the entire 320 acres has been contracted for by the Dominion, while  the extent of further contracts is  limited only by the ability of seed  growers to deliver the goods.  To offset the present serious  shortage of meat supplies, the Advisory Board on Wild Life Protection has under consideration the  possibility of utilizing the countless  herds of Barren Ground Caribou in  the. northern regions .of Canada.  From time to time travellers and'  others have slated that these herds  could be utilized to relieve the meat  shortage. They have been estimated to number from 10,000,000 to  30,000,000 animals; but, naturally,  such estimates can be little more  thanguess-woik. Nevertheless, we  know that these animals may be  numbered by millions. Once a year,  during the winter months, they  reach, in their southward migration,  the northern limit of tree growth,  extending from Churchhill on Hudson bay in the east, to the neighborhood of lake Athabaska in the  west.  At present, labour and adequate  means of transportation and storage present unsurmountable difficulties. Reaching the herds during their winter sojourn also presents peculiar difficulties because  there is no certainty that they will  be found on their usual route when  travelling southward. .  Should any method of making  use of such a natural meat supply  be found feasible, it would be necessary to put it into effect under  government administration. Nu-  dually, the control which it is pos  sible to exercise under the Northwest Game Act would prevent  any exploitation of this valuable  natural resource by private inter  ests.  Miss Mildred Wilson was a visitor to Vancouver Saturday.  ORDERS by command for week  ending May 25, 1918.  DUTIES: Orderly patrol for  week Otters ; next for duty, the  Beavers.

We  expect they will reach $290. Our  expenses amounted lo $55.55, as  follows : Rent $25, fixing stage  $6 85, advertisements $4.90, programs and tickets $9 25, posters  5.05, electric wiring $2.50, and presentation pictures $2.  We are giving a little over 10 per  cent of our net taking, $25 to be  divided between the Red Cross  and Canadian Pattiotic Fund, and  $50 to the Cubs. Besides the concert our only other sources of revenue for the year nre the monthly  subscriptions of 10c from each  scoul, not collected however during the months of July and August  Our two main expenditures for the  year are the camp and rent. The  latter amounts to $3 a month except during the two summer  month* when we do not meet as a  Iroop, and last year we had to draw  on our troop funds for lhe camp to  lhe extent of $120. We cannot afford to draw so much for the same  purpose again and it will probably  be necessary to raise the tamp fee  from the usual $2 per head to  meet the increasingly high cost of  living.  Speaking of camp : we shall be  glad if every   scout  will   keep on  the   outlook   for   a   good   site.   A  change   from  Cedar  Creek li.ight  be appreciated, but the latter place  is hard to beat.  a        s  ���  Scout   Walker   a   few   evenings  before   the  concert  on   returning  home to the  Mission  dropped his  purse containing   quite  a  sum   of  money.     It  has  been picked   up  by someone to whose attention we  hope  thia   column   will come," in  order that the finder may have the  opportunity of   doing a good turn  by returning the purse to the owner.  ���      ���  The provincial census returns  are taken up to the 30th of June  in each year, and as we have been  fortunate in getting the concert  over so early, there is a splendid  opportunity for every scout in the  troop to get to work on thc 1st  class and some proficiency badges  Patrol Leaders will at once find  out from each scout in their respective patrols what he proposes  to undertake in this connection.  .There is no room in the troop for  any drones or laggards.  We would point out to any intending recruits that a boy must  have passed his Tenderfoot tests  before attending our troop camp,  and that he cannot be a Tenderfoot until he h'ns been attached to  the troop for one month.  France is undertaking to distribute tobacco by cards like bread  and sugar. Leading French suffragettes are protesting against the  new regulations under which women are excluded from the privileges of the distribution bv card  of tobacco.  The final session of the Yukon  Legislature took place last Tuesday. Formal notice abolishing the  council and substitution of a simpler form of government is expected from Ottawa shortly. Eight  bills were passed by the council  during the session, including an $8  poll tax on all males over eighteen  regardless of their status as taxpayers or p.'operty-holders, a  moratorium protecting Yukon' soldiers, and more liberal use of  caribou and moose meats for food  purposes.  Apples in England are selling at  one shilling and upwards per lb.  The high price is said to be due to  the fact that very few apples were  shipped to England from the U.S.  and Canada last winter.

ThiB company of three eminent musical urtisU In both programs feature ths music of the masters,  presenting It in a manner, however, which makes it popular with everyone.  Ferdinand I'i'llon, who heads the organization, is a French violinist  who has attracted unusual press comment through his masterly musicianship. He brings to Chautauqua a famous old de Salo violin, made in the  16th century.  Fern Goltra, dramatic soprano, was formerly with the Chicago  Grand Opera Company uud Is noted for her voice of unusual warmth and  brilliancy. Edna McKachern, pianist and accompanist, formerly of the  Moscow Conservatory nf Music, Is the third member of this splendid  organization  University Will Have  Big Poultry Plant  By autumn the twenty-acre plot  on the University of British Colunv  bia grounds at Point Grey dedicated to fhe branch of poultry  industry will be equipped with a  plant sufficient to carry on the  work in keeping with wartime  economy. The necessary buildings  will be started this summer so that  birds and equipment may be installed and the plant be put in  smooth running order for the busy  curriculum work slated for 1919.  Organization is progressing rapidly  under Prof. A. G. Lunn's direction.  He will have charge of the work  of this branch, for which he is  eminently fitted by long experience.  The poultry branch being established by the university is for the  benefit of the people of the pio-  vince at large and its importance  is emphasized because it will be a  prime factor in better methods ot  production and increasing of the  food supply. Although some of  the eastern universities have poultry courses through their various  connections, the British Columbia  University is well to the tore in this  progressive movement.  A second naval expedition was  made early last Friday morning to  the submarine bases at Outenc!  and the now famous cruiser " Vindictive " filled with concrete sunk  across the entrance to the canal  there.

The cool cloudy weather following upon mid-summer beat of last  week-end is welcome enough as  an indication that rain may soon  be around. Rain is now badly  needed to give things a good start.

An icehouse, shed and chicken-house  were all involved before the brigade were got out, notwithstanding the record run they made, and  were burning furiously. The strong  wind which was blowing from the  north at the time made the fire a  danger to the residence itself,  which was scorched in places. The  outbuildings and contents were  completely ruined, involving a loss  of about $400 none of which unfortunately were covered by insurance. The fire was caused by one  of the children who had somehow  obtained possession of matches  and made a little fire of paper in  the back yard.  WATER NOTICE  DIVERSION AND USE  TAKE NOTICE that Mr..

WILLITS & CO.,   Kelowna  Birds'Nests Must Not  Be Robbed  The old and often cruel sport of  boys in robbing birds' nests and  making rival collections of birds'  eggs is now officially put on the list  of national crimes. The sport is  banned, according to an order-in'  council just passed at Ottawa. The  order is passed under the provisions  of the migratory birds' convention,  passed last session.  The new regulations provide for  lhe protection of migratory game  birds, migratory insectivorous and  migratory non-game birds, which  inhabit Canada during the whole  or any part of the year. New close  seasons are established for ducks,  geese, brant or rails, and other  edible wild fowl, from December  15 to August 31, both days inclusive.  The killing, capturing, injuring  or molesting of insectivorous birds,  their eggs or nests, is prohibited  throughout the. vear, except where  special permits are granted to  recognized museums or for scientific purposes. These insectivorous  birds include robins, woodpeckers,  wrens, meadow larks, humming  birds, whip-poor-wills, thrushes and  "all other perching birds which  feed enlirtlv or chiefly on insects."  A clcse season for ten years is proclaimed for cranes, swans and  nearly all shore birds, and a close  season for five years on wood duck  and eider duck..  That it pays to a.lvertis! and  lhat ih-re are a large nun ber of  good hearted pe tpler in the world  is shown by a story I >Id in a Boston paper. A newspaper writer  described lhe case of a man at a  training camp who published the  far i that he had never received a  letter since he arrived there. In a  few days he had received 1900  letters by ordinary mail, 19 by  special delivery, and 54 parcels of  comforts.  C. W. CUNNINGHAM  AUCTIONEER  and  General Commission  Merchant  (Successor to J.
