KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, I9I6.-4 PAGES  $1.50 Per  Results of Corn-  Growing Competition  Kelowna  District Crows   Finer  Crops Than Any in province  Serious Accident to Rancher  Thu results /ui tho contest held under  tbe auspices of the Kelowna Farmers  Institute have just been nuiUo public.  'Iho lust prize ol i'ZJ goes to Mr. I.  ii. Tnylor ui liuruheud with a paniu-  uiitni.v linu stand ui corn which would  well repay u visit by all interested in  growing & crop for which this district  is preeminently suited. (Jut ui a pus  sible 100 points thu crup soured bUi-  Mr. tt. A. Scott uf Benvoulin i'ouivb  next with a wore ui Hii'i, while Mr.  M. Hereron took 85. points with u  orop ut Ellison. The second ami  third prizes were $15 and $10 res  pectively.  The judging was dune lust h'riduy by  Mr. if. .Ii. Miller ot Viotoria, u practical farmer*; of wide experience in corn  growing, though now retired. Mr.  Miller in commenting upon the lot-a>  showing, stated thut though in the  course ui his work as judgo he hud  travelled ail over the province, thc  samples he had met with in the K-du-  wna district. were the iinest hu haa  seen anywhere. He was most enthusiastic over the dairying possibilities  of the district, und was particular!!/  pleased with the number of b.Ios  which had been erected during the  pust year or two. Ha looked upo��  them aa a sui'e indication of coming  prosperity, and the best investment a  farmer could make. Hu huiled the  tendency uf farmers in the district to  adopt more mixed farming methods as  a. good sign, and one which would lay  the foundation of solid agricultural  proprerity.  It was a matter of some surprise to  'Mr. Miller that in a district where  corn could be grown to such a degree  of perfection, there were not more  to enter the contest, and he hoped  that in future years the idea would be  taken up with greater enthusiasm an  nothirig tended to the general all-  round improvement so much us a little  healthy competition.  . Although several were entered at  the beginning of the contest, only six  remained to have their corn judged,  the rest dropping out for 'various  reasons.  The following table shows th��  method of scoring used, and thuftjoints  secured by eaoh of the contestant's:���  One of Kelowna's best known farm  on, and a pioneer uf the distriot, Mr.  Ii. Muusun, Is ut present lying iu  hospital in a critical conditiun as a  result uf an attack by a savuge bull.  Mr. Munson had entered the stublo  where it hud been cuniined Tuesday  und wus about to lead it out v hen  hu accidentally lot go uf the rope  which was passed through n ring ia  its nusu. As he stuoped tu recover  it the bull turned on him and t lire  him to the ground, goring him savagely with its murdcruus horns. Charging a second time it tossed the already badly injured man dear over  thu partition from where the animal  wub fed. To this u iron instance Mr.  Munson probably owes his life as thu  bull could no longer roach him.  He was picked up, taken indoors,  and afterwards sent to the hospital,  where hu wus found to have sustained  several serious iu juries. Two of hia  ribs were broken and he hud several  sovere cutB and bruises about his  head and Jjody. It is also feared  that he has been hurt internally.  Enquiry ut the hospital' to-day elicited tho information that he hud passed  a good night and was resting quietly.  Mr. Munson, though well advanced in  years, is a man of strong constitution  which, it is hoped, will enable him to  recover where a weaker man might  have succumbed.  The animal which caused all the  trouble has since been killed. It had  an evil reputation, having already  done considerable damage. Only a  short time ago it gored a horso which  was being driven along the Black  Mountain road, and a couple of weol  ago made a similar attack on Mr.  Munson's son, Fred, hurting his arm  badly.

The case ib a very  peculiar one, und the attending physicians are at a loss to know how the  lad acquired the infection. The little  fellow oame to town on Friday Irom  a farm where tho family had been  holidaying. Saturday morning he  staggered when walking across the  kitchen floor, and within u few minutes was unable to stand. The paralysis progressed until a few hours  all lie could do was weakly shake his  head. Then unconsciousness supervened, and on Sunday he died.  Kigid quarantine of the household  whioh included a young couple on  their honeymoon, was carried out. On  the streets no children were to '>e  seen. School* will remain closed and  any assembly of ohUdren in any public  place is positively forbidden, while  every feasible preventative measure  has ,been taken by the oivio- authorities to limit the outbreak.   o   War oflico authorities having intimated that thoy have no abjection to  votes of British Columbia soldiers bring taken nt the front, Sir. Richard  McBride is therefore attempting is  arrange for returning officers, scrutineers, 'etc,, to proceed to France forthwith.  The French Hone Commission which  is touring in Canada for the purpose  of purchasing horses for the French  Government will be in Kelowna on  Friday, Ootober 13th, und is desirous  of purchasing horses of the following  classes:  Light artillery horses weighing from  1100 lbs. to 1250 lbs., price *13U.  Heavy artillery horses, weighing  1250 lbs.,'and upwards,, price $140.  The commission wants horses fifteen  hands high and upwards, and wants  them sound and gentle nnd broken to  either saddle or harness, rh age tho  horses should be between live and ten  years old. The animals need not bo  of any particular colour, and either  mares or geldings will be acceptable.  Horse owners are advised not to l>o  too particular with regard to minor  faults, providing the horso is not injured in any way that prevents it  from doing all that is expected of it  in the mutter of work, .hint because  a horse has a slight wire scratch it  docs not necessarily mean that it will  be useless to the army.  Arrangements have l>een made to  have the election returns shown upon  the screen at the Opera House next  Thursday evening. Special pictures  will also be shown, and the admission  will be twenty the cents.  Whether local political enthusiasm  hud expended itsoil on tho two pre  vious meetings when thu two leaders  oi the opposing partite were the pnn-  cipul speakers, or whutevor the ouuse,  there wus only u comparatively small  gutheriug lust Thursday in the Opera  House on the oucusion of thu visit u  Ralph Smith, a well-known Liberal  veteran of both Provincial and Federal  politics, und ut present a candidate  in Vancouver, it is safe to Bay vhut  although Mi-. Smith is not half ho  much iu tho lime light us ure Urjw^ter  and Macdonald, lSo left u much more  favorable impression upon his j jui'ciS.  I hough one could not agree with all  he said, yet there was certainly a  truer ring of genuine criticism und  honest desire for good government in  his remarks thun could be observed  either in his leader or fellow candidate.  Mr. Rogers was the tirst speaker,  and though he covered more or less  lumdiar ground he was in good ini'm  uud delivered a very fluent speech.  J hoy were not engaged, he .-mid, in a  party tight, but in a struggle a��ui&st  autocratic government. He criticised  tho Soldiers' Voting Act, which hu  said guvo loop-holes ior manipulation  of votes. The loose slipshod lc^isla  tion of the government wus due, he  suid to the luck uf opposition. If the  Liberals hud been in u similur position conditions would probaoly huve  been the same.  H�� strongly advocated the adoption  of the system known us "proportional  representation," which would prevent  any ono party from getting un auso  luto majority. He characterized the  logislntion of the past session us u  death-bed repentance on tho part ot  tho government, who hud introduced  much useful legislation which might  just us well have been introduced live  or six years ago He dealt suectsi*  ively with the "writ", the agent general's salary, the land policy and thu  irrigation problem. In connection  with the latter he said that as the  Liberals had now practically adopted  the .same policy as the Conservatives  there was really no dispute between  them.  In conclusion he declared that while  the subjects of irrigation, agricultural  credits, etc, were important, they  were as nothing to the question ol  whether the government be democratic  or autocratic.  Air. Ralph Smith was well received  and listened to attentively during thu  course of his lengthy address. Mr.  Smith gave three reasons why the  government should be defeated. It  had handed over its power and auth  ority to private interests, tho railwuy  and coal mining companies; instead  of managing things in tho interests of  the public it had built up a party  machine; and it had spent the public  funds oxtravigently.  He complained thut the government hud nat compelled the railway  companies to curry out their contracts, and hud ullowed the control of  them to slip through their lingers  when the companies had gone to the  Dominion government for aid. Under  the constitution he claimed that from  that time all provincial authority  ceased.  Ho went into the matter of the  miners disputes at Ladysmith, which,  he said, were duo to thc government  failing to protect the men against  privato interests.  The increasing expenditure of the  province came in for the strongost  criticism- Tho exjwndieures had  grown out of all' proportions to the  revenues, and there was nothing to  show for it.  He expressed his approval of the  Premier" in giving votes to soldiers,  and in selecting Sir Kichacd McBride  to superintend tho taking of the vote  in the Old Country but he drepivcat-  cd the appointing of F. W. Welsh to  take the votes under Sir Richard. It  was an evidence that the government  was tho same old party machine.  He closed with an appeal to the  electorate to "Kill the Government,"  and elect men who would cany on  tho affairs of the province as they  should be oarried on.

Besides  somo live or six ears containing tho  Brigade and their friends, u largo  number of Kolowna people took ml-  vuntage of the holiday to visit tho  ramp, and report a very enjoyabk-  day.  'iho i'ire Brigade Contest was practically a duplicate of the one held in  Kolowna on itegatta day, and.although the Kolowna boys wero de-  ieatod in three out of.tbe four regular  events, thoy managed to bring home  the handsome silver cup given by the  Consolidated Rubber Co. in the "Y"  contest.  In a special event where three men  on the truck had to lay three lengths  of hose and get water, Kelowna ali..  won, beating not only Vernon, but  teams of ox-professional firemen from  Vancouver UQd Xew Westminister now  members of tho forcer* at Vernon.  In the ovening the boys were entertained lo a banquet in the OddfeCows  Mull, where speeches were mado b>  Chief Moffat of the Vernon Fire 1 e  partment and Aid.

Thut is the Institute  sends hun periodical parcels of comforts with the benevolent intention oi  making his life in durance vile more  endurable. I 'lie message is brief,  necessarily, but is sufficient to convey  the information that he is receiving  tho parcels all right, and that they  are proving a great solace to him in  his captivity, in his own words he  is "all fit, well, merry ond bright,  thanks to the solid comforts in the  parcels sent." He expresses tbe hope  that the ladies will not havo to send  many moro, and closes with the some  what cryptic remark that "we expect  to see the fruit on the theos this Fall.'  Probably a plainer statement that hi  looked for an early termination of the  war would have foiled to pass th.  agio eye of thu German censor.

Now that tho summer is neurly over  wo hope thut all those helpers who  have .been taking holidays will return  with renewed energy to the work.  That our work is much appreciated at  headquarters may be seen from tho  following extracts from letters received  during the past few months:  *'I have much pleasure in acknowledging Kelowna's latest shipment of  supplies, everything was well made as  usual, and well packed. The flannel  you use for the shirts is excellent and  a good color. Can you tell me whet  you get it and the price per yard?  Your socks were well knitted and web  laundered."  "You did well on your tag day. It  is more difficult to raise money this  year than last. But difficulties only  mean greater efforts put forth to surmount them, end British women the  world over will never lose heart  With best wishes for the success of  your splendid branch."  Such cheering words of appreciation  hould surely stir us up to greater  ���(Torts in the future.

Now   is thu   timo   ior  lixliirntors lo  Mako Plans ant Prepaxitioim  for Thoir Display!  Hy 11. Tbotnber  Assistant Horlrcimuritt  The sueress ol u Fair is lut'goly (Iu  poudonl upon tho number oi uxhrtis.  With u full schedule of olhor tiltiiic-  .lions und Imlf-lilloxl tublos of iruils,  vegetables, und similar exhibits, Iho  Fair cannot be a complete success.  The importance of tho heurty co  operation of the public is readily sen  and instead of coming to tno 1'n.i.  without an exhibit and saying, idler  the judging is ever, "(.iee, 1 could hu*v  beaten that all hollow ii 1 had only  brought niine," they should bring fchirii'  exhibits whether or not they are sure  of a prize.  With tho numerous divisions fouiui  in tho prize lists, each member of I lie  family will find ample opportunity lo  exhibit something, and tho farm display  gives each family ii ehanoe for coml iu-  ��1 olfort. While some farms cannot  make a big showing on account of a  limited number of products grown,  there is plenty of chance to outer  the individual ���classes.  With fair-timo rapidly approaching  tho preparation of the display, should  be considered. Crops from which exhibits are to be mado should be given  eMtni cure, as the lirst essential to  success is to have something good to  select from.  In the meantime prize lists shoulo  be studied. Head and reread the rules  and regulations, then mark the entries  you wish to make. In uddition.a copy  of Bulletin Mo. 18, "Exhibiting Fruits  and Vegetables," should be secured  from tho department of Agriculture,  and a careful study made oi the selection, preparation, and the exhibiting  of the different kinds oi fruits and  vegetables. This bulletin is of special  value because it was prepared as a  guide for the managers of the fairs  and ior the judgos judging these  classeB in British Columbia.  WHY PKIZES ARE LOST  in selecting exhibits follow the local  prize-list in detail. Where a oertain  quantity is called ior exhibit exactly  that quantity; however it is good  plan to havo a lew extra specimens  laid away to replace any which may  bocome injured or be Btolen by irresponsible people. Six apples on u  plate when live are called for, is as  bad as ono short. Ii the rules call  ior a box of apples with the top layer  unwrapped, the judge should, to be  fair to the other exhibitors who have  followed the rules, disqualify any one  who fails to remove or only removes  part of the wrappers. Numerous  prizes are lost every year simply  through disregarding the requirements  of- tho prize list.  The points considered in judging  fruits and vegetables aro size, color,  uniformity, form, and freedom from  blemishes.  The size of the specimens winning  the prizes is often a matter oi much  discussion. Tho biggest is seldom lire  winner; as a!matter oi iaot, the largest  vegetables and many of the largest  fruits nre often the poorest. Vegetables  like turnips, beets or carrots are in  prime condition while quite small,  gradually becoming of less value ior  table use as they become larger. On  the other hand, size consistent with  good    shape, color, etc., is a require  ment for peaches, plums, cherries and  Borne verities of apples, such as the  Wolf, Spokane Beauty, and Alexander,  which are naturally lnrgo. Large size  is alio desirable in vegetables shown  as a field crop for stock feed.  Color is a very important requirement for fruit, and aUo represents  condition in vegetables. A higaol'T  appeals to the eye, and If n'l ul-her  conditions ore equal, tho highly rotor-  ed exhibit stands a better shunee ol  winning than that of poor culo-.  UNIFORMITY  NECESSARY  Uniformity refers to the uppoarance  of the specimens of each exhibit taken  collectively, ilt simply meunB that each  specimen should bo as nonr as possible  the same size, color, and shape as lhe  other specimens of the same exhibit.  A common mistake is to put one  largo apple or pear on a plate with  four smaller ones, or a red one with  four green ones.  Form refers to tho shape of tho il'Uit  or vegetable. It should be true to the  particular variety aB well as being  attractive, and in the case of potatoes  and root-crops, economical' in paring.  Freedom irom. blemishes is also Very  important. Wormy, scabby, bruised,  water-cored, or otherwise imperfect  fruit should never be shown. Tne  absence of stems in pears and apples  disqualifies, although this is not very  strictly adhered to in small fairs. All  fruits to which tho stems naturally  adhere should have them leit intact.  In vegotables, greon en Is on potatoes  and carrots, second growth, and uli  ABE YOU G01XC, TO WIN -gal 2 -  other blemishes, which dotract from  the appearance or cause loss whjn  using, lower the score or disqualify if  serious.  The score card used for fruits at  llritish Columbia fairs is ub follows:���  Apples ,nnd Pears! size 15, color 26,  uniformity 25, form 15, freedom from  blemishes 20, total, 100 points.  Plums und Prunes: size 25, color 15,  uniformity 25, form 10, freedom from  blemishes 25, totul 100 points.  Peaches and Cherries: size 20, color  25, uniformity 20, form 15, freedom  from hlomishes 20, total  100 points.  Where collections of fruits are shown  quality, season, and commercial value  are taken into consideration also.  MAKING THE SELECTION  Tho first selection of the specimens  is usually made in tho gurden or lhe  orchard. To get an exhibit which will  be satisfactory, a large number of  specimens must bo gone over, and tlie  linul selection should be made at tho  house after all but the very best have  been discarded. Always select a few  extra, and if possible, do the work a  day beforo the date of the 'fair, so  thatit will not be necessary to rash  the selection. Much time and patience is necessary if the beet ure to be  secured.  Fruit requires little work to prepare  it for exnibition. AH dust, dirt and  spray material should be oarefuHy  wiped olT, but such truits as grapes,  prunes, and plums should not have  the "bloom" removed.  Vegetables require much more attention in order to show them off to the  best advantage. Root crops like beets,  carrots and turnips should be washed  and tied in bunches. The tops or a  part of them should be allowed to remain, if it is not against tho rules.  Potatoes should lie washed and arrang-  The United Service  As one regarded the congregation  met in Knox Church last Sunday, his  I if:, i, question was: "Why has this  union been so late?" That is to say  the pettiness of our differences was exposed to ub. The partitions in life  are sometimes so ilimsy that it is  little wonder we are ustonished when  u good beeeze blows them down and  causes us to seek refuge one with another. Somo say in derision that  financial conditions have caused this  union; if that be so, then thank Clod  for the tinnnciul conditions.  One man at least does not believe  that "blue-ruin" has forged the chain  and that is the minister, Mr. Braden.  lie said so. He told us on Sunday  that he had not heard that uiiher  ohuroh had repudiated any of its  debts, and believed that both oongre  gallons would have been able to live  apart.  There was no sermon in the ordinary  meaning of that term, but there wit  an address, whieh was one of thc best  of the kind I over heard. It was  straight forward,, clear in thought ur.d  expression. It was the utterance of a  youog man who wub humbled by the  prospect, but who did not shrink from  his call once clearly ooncoivyd. lie had  prayed that this cup might pass from  him.  "0 magnify the Lord with me, and  let us exalt his name together:" this  was the motto-text he chose for the  united congregation. Could he have  Oi.orfon rt b"lter? Ho j/ave two reasons  which he said would justify the existence of any church, and these two  x-easons connected aptly with tho  motto-text. The first was that' a  church point the way of eternal' Lite���  tho Pilgrim Way; that it exalt the  name of Cod; that it bring the best  to tho Temple. Tho second was that  it serve the interests of the community; that it enter into the needs and  relationships of men and women in  the    world.       As a united people wo  W:x$&mt*6f .

And "It  ought to bo easier to live because we  have served."  Speaking as a representative of the  Methodists he said "We are glad to  share the great heretage of the Presbyterian church, to remember its great  und good men and its Bplondid traditions. And if thore is anything thut  is good in our own church we are  glad to bring it to you."  He impressed upon the congregation that the union waB not a matter  to be taken up oasily and lightly. The  oyes of the church in Canada would  be upon us. We have taken upon  oursolves a gruve responsibility in  relation to the Union Movement in  Canada. In this connection he referred to a letter he had received irom  tho Moderator ot the Presbytery of  Kamloops, in which he wished the  united congregations every* success in  their work.  On leaving tho united service v�� fell  that the right note had been struck,  and    that    a good beginning hurl re-  ssured us before a difficult outlook.  ���J.

In  any case tho washing und trimmin_  should not be curried to excess, ub it  gives the exhibit an unnatural appearance.  Where specimens ure shown on plates  or on trays, somo regular arrangement  should be made. Apples and tomatoes  should be placed with the stem-end  down. The lining of trays or baskets  is permissible, providing the color  does not conlliet with that of the exhibit. Uright decorations iu quantity  dotruct irom the exhibit.  The arrangement is oi great importance in making displays. There is latitude for originality, and the hniBhod  exhibit should form a pleasing picture  instead of appearing as a jumbled up  masB.

Residence at  GLENMORE  YouWillHelpYour  District Best by  Voting for  Mayor Jones  \ TEXT Thursday, September 14th, you will be called  * * upon to record your vote in the Provincial election  and choose your representative for the South Okanagan  Riding.  Do not lose sight of the fact that the outstanding  importance of this contest to you is purely local. During  the campaign which is just closing many matters have  been discussed and questions raised which have little or  no bearing on the position of affairs in this our own  riding, but have rather a tendency to rloud and obscure  the real local issue.  For the first time this district is to have direct representation at Victoria, an opportunity we have been working and agitating for for years past. See to it that that  representative is one who can from knowledge and experience truly represent the district and make good its  claims to attention and consideration on the part of the  government.  Mayor Jones Has Proved  Himself  to be a man of intense public spirit and indefatigable  energy where the good of the district is concerned, and  he can be depended upon to spare no effort to carry out  the wishes of the electors, and to work for their interests.  A Strong Policy is Needed  in Dealing With the  Irrigation Problem  In his grasp of this subject alone, born of several years  of experience and study, Mayor Jones is entitled to your  support, for upon this problem rests almost all the future  prosperity of the district.  Already on several occasions he has been able to do  good service in order to prevent the present chaotic condition of water supply from causing damage and loss to  the district, and it is largely due to his persistent advocacy that the government has now collected data which  will form the basis of a comprehensive and efficient  system.  The government stands pledged  to deal with this irrigation problem on the first opportunity, and it is highly essential that this district which is  most nearly concerned should have a representative on  the spot who can watch its interests.  Government ownership of Reservoirs and Main Canals and municipal ownership (by water users themselves) of distribution systems  is the comprehensive scheme upon which Mayor Jones  has spent a great deal of time and thought and has  compelled the government to consider. It is the only  solution of a problem which must be solved if the district  is to prosper at all. And in the adoption of any scheme  the claims of the ranchers and water users must  stand before any other consideration.  Do not be talked into throwing away your vote on  any fanciful " Beat Bowser or Butt '��� policy, but care~��-<  fully consider how you can best help forward your own  district, and mark your ballot for  Mayor Jones.  who stands for a sane, independent and practical representation of every resident in the district.

Mrs. Weir was a passenger to  Vernon Sunday.  Mr. R. Bouvette was a visitor to  Vernon Sunday, returning Monday.  Mrs. H. W. Swerdfager and family returned Sunday from a long  holiday spent at the coast.  Mrs. W. D. Brent and Mrs. J. D.  Williams were visiting friends in  Penticton last week.  1 he usual Church of England  service will be held in the East  Kelowna schoolhouse on Sunday  next at 3 o'clock.  The Baptist congregation have  decided to withdraw their service  next Sunday evening, September  I Oth, and attend the Prohibition  Service in thc Presbyterian church.  The city council is making preparations for the coming tax sale,  and delinquents are again reminded that to-morrow is the last day  upon which payments of arrears  can be made so as to avoid unnecessary additional expenses.  Mr. L. Richmond and family left  yesterday morning for Camrose,  Alta. It is Mr. Richmond's intention to dispose of the balance of  his stock at that point, when he  hopes to relinquish business for  farming.  Mrs. A. G. Todd and Mrs. Akeroyd were passengers to Armstrong  this morning where they are attending as delegates a convention  which is being held there of representatives from the various women's missionary organizations  included within the Kamloops  Presbytery.  The Country Girls' Hospital Aid  Society hold their next committee  meeting on Saturday, September  9th, at the house of Mrs. Gaddes.  526, Harvey Avenue, at 3 o'clock,  It is hoped that each member will  bring a recruit with her as the  number of members has much  diminished during the past year.  There was no disappointment  in store for the playgoers who attended the performance of" Officer  666" on Tuesday evening. The  company easily maintained the  good name it won when first coming into town and staging the  " White Feather." Though we  have seen much poorer houses on  similar occasions, Tuesday's play  well deserved a better attendance.  Mr. C. E. Weeks called in the  office a few days ago to show us a  fine specimen of his cucumbers of  which he has been making a specialty for some years past. The  sample shown was a particularly  good one about fifteen inches long  and aome nine inches in girth,  and well typical of the " Emerald"  brand which Mr. Weeks has adopted. He has placed it on exhibition  in the Board of Trade room.  The union service in the Presbyterian church next Sunday night  September I Oth, will be largely  devoted to the subject of Prohibition. Tne Rev. D. E. Hatt will be  present to represent the central  committee of the People's Prohibition Movement and will deal  with the " Truth About the Prohibition Act." Everyone in doubt  about this important question  should attend this service.  The members of Vernon Typographical Union No. 541 held  their customary annual convention in the Empress Hall, Vernon,  last week-end. There was a large  attendance of printers from all  over the valley, Mr. Bartholomew,  acting as delegate from Kelowna.  In response to a hearty invitation  several members of the craft now  serving the colors attended,  amongst whom was Mr. W. H.  Youhill, president of Vancouver  Union, who was called upon to  address the meeting. Mr. Youhill  has already seen active service and  his remarks were listened to with  keen interest. Short speeches were  also given by other old-timers who  were present. On Monday the  boys attended the soldiers' sports,  leaving later in the day for their  respective hometowns after a n.ost  enjoyable and fraternal re-union.  C. Nicoll  Dray and Transfer Agent  Phone 132  Will move you quick and cheap  Serg. Charlie Hereron is in on  leave this week.  Capt. Allan is a visitor in town  this week.  Mr. J.

Mr. Ewart Patterson, formerly  on the staff of Trench's store went  up lo Vernon Saturday and enlisted in the C.A.M.C.  Baron Shaughnessy, president of  the C.P.R., is making a trip est  this month on his annual inspection, and is expected to pay a visit  lo the Okanagan.  The sale of tags for the Red  Cross on regatta day amounted to  $212'. Special thanks are given to  all who helped in any way to  make tag day such a success.  The violent disturbance of the  elements last Friday night and ensuing wet weather proved to be  the deciding factor regarding the  camp on Manhatten beach, from  which so many pleasant " whiffs "  have blown into our columns during the past couple of months.  Monday night found the beach  practically deserted by its summer  sojourners, and where the casual  observer has often noticed the  camp fire's glow nothing remains  save a mass of charred embers.  In the early hours of Sunday  morning last the policearaided a  hou?e on Eli avenue belonging to  a chinaman named Ah Sing, who  had been suspected of keeping a  gambling den. The gang was  caught red-handed, for Ah Sing  himself and a paity of his countrymen weie seated round a table  engaged in one of their gambling  games, piles of silver being in evidence with cards, dice and dominoes. Ah Sing and six others  were arrested and afterward let  out on bail, the former of $50 and  the rest of $10 each. When the  time came ior the hearing of their  case, however, they failed to put  in an appearance thus forfeiting  their bail and enriching the city  treasury by $1 10.  MILLS-MENZ1ES  A quiet but interesting wedding  took place on Tuesday morning at  I I o'clock at the parsonage, the  Rev. R. D. Braden officiating. The  contracting parties were Mr. W. G.  H. Mills, son of Mr. J. Mills, of  Montreal, and Miss Grace R. Men-  zies, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.  Menzies, of Winnipeg. The bride  was attended by Miss F. E. New-  son, and Mr. Ben Hoy undertook  the duties of best man. After the  ceremony a short motor drive was  taken around the city, after which  the happy couple and guests returned to the Lake View Hotel  where an enjoyable luncheon was  served. In the afternoon Mr. E.  Wilkinson motored the party to  Vernon where a jolly time was  spent by all. Mr. and Mrs. Mills  are making their home at the Lake  View.

Box  166  Kdited by 'Tioneer"  Every Boy Scout the fworld over  must bo thrilled with pride to know  that no greutor heroism waa shown  during the recent great naval battle  of Horn Keel, off Jutland, thun hy i  scout, lhe late Jack ('on mil ol M.  Mary's Mission Troop, Manor I'ark,  London. This boy, who was only  nixtoen yean of age, was attached to  H.M.S. "Chestor," and wus whit is  known in the navy at a .'".I'at'C'laBs  Boy. During the battle ho was on  duty at one ol tho guns, aud very  early in the battle oil but two out ot  the ten men who wore the gun cr-1 v  wero killed or wounded, Scout C ri��  well being mortally woundrl himat'lf  during tho firat few mind Ioe of the  action. Ho remainotl steadily at his  post, howover, although ho Wirt openly  exposed to the enemy's lire, vaitiu^  for orders. His gun was ��iot boaring  on thu enemy, buL ho remained at his  posl, standing und waiting under a  heavy firo, footing that he might bo  needed, waiting, us his captuin in  ivriling to his mother said, "with just  his own brave heart und God's help  to support him." He wus mentioned  by his admiral, Sir. iJavid lieatty, in  his despatch, who said ue follows:���  "Boy (let olassj John Travers Cornwall, of "Chostor" was mortally  wounded early in tho action. He  nevertheless remained standing alone  at ;i most exposed post, quietly .awaiting orders, till the end of tho action,  with tho gun's crew dead and wounded all around him. Hie age was  under sixteen und u half years. i  regret that hu huB since died, but 1  recommend his case for special recognition in justice to his memory uud as  an acknowledgement of tho high example sot by him." This is iho hist  time that a boy haa boon mentioned  in the dusputohes of un admiral aUer  a grout naval battle, and ho was a  rfCIOUTI The funeral took place \tu  July 2%\i last at Manor Turk Cemetery. Scouts lined tho route; his  cullin wus covered, by tho White Kusign  und rested on a gun curriuge druwu  by a team of navul boys. Admiral  Buatty himself sent a wreath bearing  the simple inscription, ''With deep  respect." The Chief Scout hus awarded him the Bronze Cross, our highest  decoration for heroism, und, every Scout  throughout the Empire will juin in  loving sympathy to his mother. The  Chief Scout hus further addressed a  memorial to all his Scouts ub follows!  "C011NWELL MEMORIAL. Scouts.  We all want to do honor to Jack  Cornwell, tho boy hero of the great  light in the .North Sea, and Lo remind  ourselves and our brother suouts after1  ub that he was a Boy Scout. Wo  might put up a statue or a brass  plate, but that would not keep his  memory, alive. That is whut we want  to do. TO KEEP HIS MEM0KY  ALIVE. The beat way ior doing this  is to hold his example before our  eyes, and to try to live up to it. So  I propose to have a badge for those  to wear who like to follow up this  ideu. And 1 ask all scouts who agree  in honouring Cornwell to subscribe  what thoy can, from a penny to a  day's pay, to raise a fund which will  onaible the best "Cornwell Soouts to  get educated for a useful life after  leaving school. In this way the  memorial will be a scout, by Scouts,  for Soouts. Will you help it? "Robert,  Baden Powell' " Further particulars  may be obtained from! the Scout Mas-  tors, and we Hindi also take up thu  matter at our next 1'atrol lenders  meeting whieh will be hold very  shortly.  The battles on land have lately lwon  taking a very heavy toll from us, and  it seems hard to realize how those we  have lost will ever be replaced, because thoy are the men, who along  with the Chief Scout, have made the  movement. The fact' that they hav��  made the big,, saorifioe should be' nn  inspiration to every Boy Scout to  faithfully live up to his promise ami  endeavor to fit Mmpelf to carry on  the great work in their placo. In the  death in action of Captain, the Hon.  Roland Phillips, we have lost, aB the  Chief Sqout says, the beet Boy Scout  thenn ever was, and the brotherhood  has received its heaviest blow.

He was a son of Lord  St. Davids, and he set an ideal and  good example for all scouts to follow.  Particulars of his work and his death  appear in the August Head Quarters  Gazette, and "The Scout" of August  5th, which we shall be pleesed to show  to any of you who are interested.  Writing of "Good Turns" our Chief  says, in tho issue of August 12th,  "Yesterday a gentleman came to ox-  press to me his desire to help the Boy  Scout movement in any way in which  he could be useful. He said that at  one time he had had rather a feeling  against the Scouts, for no particular  reason except that he Boomed to meet  them everywhere! One day, howover,  he went out on Salisbury Plain and  on arriving at Stonohenge, he wanted  to leave his dogcart and have a cloaur  look at the Btonea, but he had no ono  with him to hold the horse. At that  moment, ub usual, from nowhere in  particular, a soout turned up and  offered to take charge of tho horse  and cart while ho looked at tho stonea  Ho spent a considerable timo'in doing  this, and when he came back ho found  everything all right with his horse  and cart and proceeded to offer 'lhe  boy a shilling. The scout then very  politely explained that ScoutB do not  tako money lor doing a little servtoe  of this kind���it was merely a good  turn. And this caused the man to  have a totally different opinion of  Scouts afterwards. He iB now keenly  interested in them and anxious to help  thorn in some way. So stick to your  Good Turns.
