These recommendations whioh represented a monthly saving to the city  of about $130 were approved by the  council.  Seek Aid For Creamery,  A deputation consisting of Messrs,  M. Hereron, L. F. Taylor and J.  Leathley waited on the counoil to  solicit assistance for the Kelowna  Creamery. The deputation pointed  out that the oreamery had now made  a most surcessful start, but needed  ayery possible assistance in financing  if it was to be plaood upon a perm xf  ent footing.  Mayor Jones said he considered there  was a great deal ol credit due for  the manner in which the Creamery had  been started and worked up to its  present stage. It was one of the few  things in Kelowna which had been  started right, that was in a small  way and without a great flourish ol  trumpets, and ho was sure every mem.  ber of tho council wished lhe scheme  the bost success. The routu.il, how  over,,was having its own dilHcullies hi  financing, but thoy should give every  consideration to the requoJt.  Later tho matter was discussed in  committee, and as a result ol this a  resolution was submitted and passed  that the Manioipal Act did not give  tho council power to give he cream  ery any grant or bonus by resolution  nor oould they rebnto light and water  rates or trade licence. The jnly oth-  pr way would be to submit a bylaw  to the people.  Mr.W. D. Brent waited on '.he co' n-  cil in connection with the lease unioh  the Growers' Exohange were seeking to  renew with the government on the site  ol their feed warehouse near the  wharf. ���  It was stated that the counoil were  taking steps to obtain a crown grant  of the site on which the warehouse  stood, and the clerk was instructed to  inform the Growers' Exohango that no  objection would be raised to a lease  for the rest ol the year, and that in  the event ol scouring tho title the city  and rendered the carrying out of the  events impossible.  A large orowd was on hand to take  part in the fun, a special train having  been run from Hevelstoke, picking up  members at intermediate points.  The storm came up very suddenly  and played havoc with the -tents at  thc military camp. The men had hem  granted leave for the afternoon and  having left camp in fino weather left  the camp open to the sun, and those  loft in camp were unable to loosen the  ropes on all the tents before the damage had been done.  to the minimum.

A similar letter was also read  irom the power house staff, Messrs. S.  D. Colquette, E. Fowler, F. G. Freeman, F. Varney, J. L.' Wilson and B.  M. Hill.  Mayor-Jones commenting upon the  letters said the council heartily . appreciated the view of the city employees at the present time when revenues had reduced so muoh. He said  that no official communication has  been as yet reoeived from the Bohool  board in regard to reducing 'salaries,  but from conversations with various  trustees ho gathered that they would  be willing to follow the example ol  tho rest.  Disoussion ol the details ol the salary cut waB left for a committee of  the whole, which reported to the  council the following scale of alterations:  Dies at Vancouver  any application for lease.  Mention was also made by Mr. Brent  of the street near tho Kxchange, whioh  he said needed repairing.  Alderman Copeland said he and Al  derman Raymer had visited the street  during the past few days, find although in caso of continued rain he  believed the street would out up badly there was not any urgent reason  to spend money on it. Later on the  council would perhaps be in a better  position to take the matter up.  Alderman Rattenbury who with Alderman Raymer had been appointed to  interview the syndicate owning the  lot at the corner of the park reported that a proposition had been made  to them that tho city take an option  on the lot on the following conditions:  That the eity rescind all arrears of  taxes on the property and exempt it  from taxes during the life of the option and also pay all interest on the  existing mortgage.  There was no discussion of the proposal but later after consideration in  oommittee tho following resolution was  passed: "That owing to present financial conditions tho city is unable  to consider any offer for option or  purchase."

Anderson, local manager for the  Okanagan Telephone Co., had died at  Vancouver whither he had gone for a  stay in the hope of recuporat!ng his  health. Mr. Anderson had been seriously ill with asthma for aome time  past and on Friday last left, in oompany with his wife for the coast in  the hope that a change of a week or  two would be beneficial. The fatigue  of travelling, however, was apparently  too muoh for him and he expired Monday within two days of his arrival  Interment is to take place at Vancouver.  Mr. Anderson, who was quite a  young man has been in Kelowna in  the position of manager since last  September, coming here from Vancouver. He has made many friends who  will keenly regret his early domise. Ho  was married so recently as laat Christmas at Vancouver.  Mr. Chas.

Hermann, who  was of German origin has been  around the 'velowna district for a  great while, some say for forty-five  years, and during all that time has  been variously engaged in mining,  prospecting and trapping. Ho was ono  of the first to work the placer gold  on Mission Creek.  Somo time ago he sold a pre-emption which he held up Mission Creek  and with the proceeds purchased a lot  and built a small shaok in town. His  advancing years���he was 83���and failing hoalth, however, mado it neoessary  lately lor his friends to give him a  helping hand. Some weeks ago he  wont to stay at tho Haynes ranch at  Benvoulin and it was there that ho  died. The funeral' will tako plaoe tomorrow (Friday) alternoon.  lJastFriday's news despatches contained the sad news of tho death in  England o! Miss Margaret Stirling,  daughter of Lieut.-Commander T. \V.  Stirling. The greatest sympathy will  be felt looally with Mr. Stirling who  it will be remembered lost his elde't  son in the trenohes at the commencement of the war.  Prises totalling $20,000 recently were  divided among three French scientists  for discoveries in oonneotion with anti-typhoid vaccine.  Since the Kettle Valley line bogan to  run its train servioe several carloads  of silver ore have boen shipped over  it from Boaverdell to the smelter at  TraU.  Though the actual legal process ol  incorporation and organization ure not  yet completed the creamery lias had  over a month ol actual business. The  first cream was taken in on the first  Of June but cream was not regularly  received until about the 11th. An the  present time' thero are Bomewhere  about 40 patrons regularly bringing  in cream.  A statement has been prepared lor  the month of Juno, though really only  during a portion of the month was  the creamery in aotual operation. It  iB however in many ways a verv satisfactory statement.  Amongst other things it gives the  amount of oash handed out to the  farmer at the end of lu.to for cream.  This reached about $900, and of course  will bo greatly increased during this  and following months. If this is possible in the mere infancy of the business, it is obvious that the creamery  has every claim for earnest support  and enoouragement.  Up to the present the chief difficulty  has beon to supply the demand for  creamery1 products, and no sooner has  a batch ol butter left the churn than  it is sold out and more being oalled  for. Production however is gradually  being increased, and it is hoped soon  to bo able to send a regular supply to  other points on the lake, which are  also oallivg for Kelowna butter and  ice cream.  Like all other concerns, howover, finances present a pressing problem. The  total cost of the plant and equipment is less than $2,000 and this with  a sum of $50 paid for incorporation  represents the whole of the capital  outlay. Towards this to date -II!  shares have been sold with $20 per  Share payable, producing $860. The  situation thus ' is that either more  shares must be sold to produce tho  required oapital or a further call must  be made on the shares sold (on which  ol course $30 remains unpaid.)  There seems to be no doubt that the  creamery oan be actually run at a  profit when ' things get into proper  shape, but the capital debt needs to  bo cleared off. It has been decided instead of making any furth.tr call on  the shares sold to conduct a careful  canvass of the district in order that  the debt can be wiped off without  drawing upon those who have already  given generously oi time and money  to get the creamery started. With  the sole ol another 60 shores with $20  paid up the problem would be settled.

Rutland went to bat first and scored  threo runs in the opening round by  timely hitting and some daring base-  running. Ellison, however, in their  hall ol the same inning evened up with  their opponents, assisted by a couple  of errors and a brace of hits by the  heavy end of the Ellison batting order.  From this on to the end of the eon-  test there was little to choose between  the two teams, and pretty fielding  stunts were pulled off by both Bides  cutting off runs at the plate and tending to keep the score down.

C.  Department of Agriculture took place  on the 7th, 8th. and 9th inst., and waa  attended by a good number of representative British Columbia growers including most members of the executive  oE the B. C. Fruit Growers' Association, by D. Johnson, Dominion Fruit  Commissioner, and by prairie retailers  and wholesaler**, representatives of  grain-growers' associations, aud consumers' leagues. The problems confronting the British Columbia growers  were very fully and clearly stated, emphasizes being placed upon the price-  lowering pressure constantly being  exerted upon our fruits by tho Washington surplus production, while some  features of the present machinery oi  distribution were also criticised. Consumers' representatives put in pleas  for maintaining the price of fruit at  the standards set by last, yoar. opposed espensive packages and advocated  steps in the direction of eliminating  the middle men. Retailers, wholesalers, and brokers presented their views  very fully, and the representatives of  transportation companies also defended rates and minima. The Dominion  Fruit Commissioner made the interesting announcement that inspection at  the shipping end is to be increased,  considerable additions being mado to  thn inspection force for this purpose  and also, that a bill would be introduced in parliament, in the near future, providing penalties for transportation ���employees handling fruit roughly. Among resolutions brought .in and  discussed were those urging the packing of apples in cheaper packages, the  storage of B. C. apples at the point  of shipment, satisfactory parcel post  rates for the shipment of soft fruits,  tho standardization of packages for  small fruits, a federal commission of  inquiry into fruit marketing, tho reduction of express ratt-R to jobbing  points in Alberta, and of the present  express minimum of 20,000 pounds,  joint express rates to C.N.K., and G.  T.P., points, the necessity of having a  representative of thi' various producing districts at each centre taking an  active part in regulating marketing  conditions, etc.  HOW TO MAKE THE BEST USE I IF  FRUIT  How to make the bost and most  economical use of fruit is a matter of  much importance in a oountry liko  this, and particularly so under present  circumstances.  The British Columbia fruit Growers'  Association have just issued an interesting 76 page illustrated booklet,  "British Columbia Fruit," containing  some 225 tried and tested recipes for  preparing apples, peaches, plums, raspberries, strawberries and other fruits,  information as to varieties ol apples  and when to use them, how to st >i'u  apples, how to preserve fruits without sugar, etc., and muoh other data  of special interest to the fcoisovifo.  The booklet is got up in very attractive style, and ito contents are  such as to prove of undoubted value  to those who are charged with the  care of the home and the feeding of  the family. These copies are to be  had on application to R. M. Winslow,  provincial horticulturist, Victoria.  MAGIC "^ THE  BAKINGLABEL  ^uM POWDER  Communications  Preserve Your Fruit  Without Sugar  The high price of sugar, due to tho  war, has possibly led some economical  housewives to consider curtailing tho  quantities of fruit they will put up  this yoar.  As to the general quostion of economy, It may bo pointed out that whilo  so many essential articles ii tooil have  ritcn in prico on account of the war,  Fruit has boen and wil, be as cheap  as over. There will bo a decided saving, therefore, in using it to replace  as far as possible, other more i-spen*  sive foods. It should further be. cou-  tidered that war conditions have great  ly increased the cost of English jams,  so that it will be economy to replace  theso as far as possible with homemade jams and preserves.  With regard to the high price of  sugar, why use sugar at all? The  prevalent idea that fruit cannat be  kept without the addition of sugar in  the process of canning is quite a mistake. If made into a thick symp  sugar acts as an antiseptic, keeping  perfectly sound fruit from decay even  without heat, but, lu the quim.lies  ordinarily used in canning, it takofc  absolutely no part in the .preservation  of the fruit from deterioration. Authorities all agree that fruit put ap  without 'sugar retains its delicate and  distinctive flavor very much better,  and is altogether suporior to that put  up in the ordinary way. Oi OoiirVe,  sugar will eventually have to be use-3  in preparing the fruit for the table,  but much less ia required to awe- Un  to taste after cooking. This is sn far  a well understood, scientific reason.  Our ordinary white granulated is a  pure cane sugar, and is the sweetest  of alt sugars. When cane sugar is  heated in the presence of an acif, it  gradually changes changes ini) other  forms of sugar having much les* sweetening power. One of thesi, glucose,  has only about 30 per cent, the sweetening power of pure cano sugar.  AU fruit contains more or less acid,  and so all mixtures of fruit and sugar  tends to lose some of their sweetness  in the process of cooking. On this  account, it is much more economic;-!  to add thc sugar after the fruit is  cooked, while this is, also, the only  way in which the full characteristic  flavor of the fruit can tie retained.  Another point worthy of consideration  ia that before fruit so preserved has  to be used, it is quite possible that  sugar prices will bo normal again.  There is nothing to loso, therefore,  a gain in the quality of thc preserves,  and a probability of considerable saving in trying out tho sugarless method  of canning.  To put up fruits without sugar, simply prepare thorn in the ordinary way;  see that tho jars aro perfectly clean,  thoroughly scalded with boiling water,  filled to the top and left in thorn a  considerable time; boil the rubbers  and covers, and see that the rubbers  are soft and freo from grooves or  cracks; place the fruit in tho jars, fill  with cold water, placo them in a  boiler filled with cold wator, heat to  the boiling point. Berries will do if  removed when tho boiling point is  reached. I.urge fruit, such as peuohes,  pears, plums, cherries, and tho like  should get 20 to 30 minutes boiling.  A board should Ira placed in the bottom of the boiler to keep the jars  from the direct heat of th0 stove. Tho  fruit thus prepared will be found excellent for pics, delicious for eating  with cream, and, generally, superior  to the sugar-syrup preserves. In properly air-tight jars they will also keep  quite as long,.  Canadian maples will shade the  graves of the ��� Canadian dead in Flanders. Fane Rewell of Toronto has  forwarded large supplies of Canadian  maple seeds, and the Overseas Club of  London, organized by Evelyn Wrench,  is now negotiating with the British  Red Cross to plant these seeds wherever practicable around the graves  and cemeteries where Canadian soldiers  aro buried in France and Flinders.  The Over teas Club propose after ths  war to plant an avenue of maple trees  at Langemarck as a memorial to the  Canadian dead.  An explosion took place a few days  ago in a pytotechnio faotory whioh  was employed in making rockets for  tho Frenoh army, killed ninety persons  and wounded many others.

HOW TO RAISE EARLY  AND BETTER TOMATOES  ' In writing this artiole I wish to at  tract the attention of the local grow  or of the tomato to the following  hints which will be of somo profit  to them at this time. The season opened early with great prospects of a  bountiful crop, but as it advanced it  becamo very changeable, and tho outlook is not so good. Tho following  points will help combat these i eying  conditions:  When the growth of tho plants have  reached out to almost touch each  other, tho point or head of each  branch should be nipped out, leaving  one leaf beyond the third or fourth  trusB of bloom as the case mny be,  this will hasten tho swelling of tho  fruits, and prevent useless and wasteful growth of the plant. Also all sido  shoots should be removed, which prevent quick developments, this time Is  woll spent by going over weekly all  the plantation from this date till fruit!  ripens in quantity. Also remove all  misshapen fruits, for these only spoil  the sample both for the market or  cannery. The "Earliana" variety is  inclined to produce a percentage of  these and it pays to remove the worst.  specimens. j  How to prevent cracking of the  fruit. This trouble is caused by too  much moisture in the soil when the  ripening stage is on, they Bhould have  amplo water during growth of the  plants, but when tho first signs of  ripening appear it should bo withheld.  The growth of the plant will consorvo  a large amount of moisture by shading,  the soil. The fruit will keep bettor'  and be of better flavor if this last  hint is carefully attended to.  W. J. PALMER.  (Of PalmerT& Rogerson).  SPARE THE NATIVE FLOWERS  Tho rapid disappearance in most sections of some of our most beautiful  native wild flowers calls attention to  the need for united action being taken  by respontible organizations for the  preservation of our native plants. Several states of the American Union have  enacted laws prohibiting the removal  of some of the most attractive and  delicate wild flowers from waste or  wooded lands. The digging up of  perennial roots and the plucking of  the flowers of annuals have been made  criminal offences.  Every spring there is a stampede by  many town and city people to tho  adjacent woods to pick the first wild  flowers. This tendency iB a natural  ono, although it cannot be commended. Did tho people who pick theso  flowors realize the damage they wore  doing they might be restrained from  actions, the final result of which is  the destruction of the very things they  love. ...

Doty appeared reoently in ihe Now  York 'Evening Post.'  "Don't go," aaid the American embassy at The Hague. "Amerioups nre  ndt wanted. You may get into  trouble.'.' '      %  I packed my bag with beating heart.  Go I would���for why live unlets ad.  venture? But I spoke no German.  How oould it be managed? Hy head  was lull, of tales ol hardship and imprisonment. The 'Lusitania' had just  been sunk. I had nover been to Germany.   Berlin was a Btrange oity.  I pinned my little American flag  and my Hague "Poace Congress badge  on tho lapel of my coat. Hy passport  ���I tucked in my pookot. With a small  hand-bag and no printed or written  word I started forth.  Fortunately a Hungarian newspaperwoman whom I had mot, travelled  by the same train. We were an ill-  assorted pair. She, potito and feminine and full of gay light humor; I  serious, clad in. business clothes with  many capacious pockets. 'Hon mart/  she called' me. 'Ha femme' proved a  very useful person. She spoke f'.vo  languages. Born in Russia with  French ancestors, living in Paris, and  married to a Hungarian, her beart  waB with the Allies. Life in Budapest  was difficult. She dreaded return. But  .her glib German tongue and Hungarian marriage made her 'persona grata' in Germany.  Her flirtation with the passport officials at the frontier * let us throujh  with smiles aind an invitation to  wait over a train.  Before the border was reaohed, 1  had hidden my American flag. It was  not wise to speak English. This mado  mo very helpless. T persuaded my  companion to stop off with me in  Berlin.  Tt Vas a long, tedious day's journey. The Gorman pasture lands wore  empty���no people: men or women,  anywhere, and no cattlo. But it was  Sunday. Perhaps that was thc reason. ^  Evory Fifth Person Bereaved  When we had secured roorriB at a  hotel we started forth to Bee the dty.  A passing throng filled the Friedrich  straBse, but half were soldiers, Every  fifth person was in mourning or wore  a black -band upon the sleeve. The  faces in the electric light looked p  and tense. There was much talk, but  no laughter.  Every now and then one caught the  word 'Lusitania.' Only the day before the steamship had been sunk.  1 olung to my oomponion. We talked in whispers. Once or twice an  English word between us caught the  oar ot a passer-by, who turned, flushed and angry, to glare upon us. 1  soon ceased speaking. In tho restaurant I made wild guesses and pointed  at dishes on the menu and uttered no  sound. I felt as I had during my voluntary week in prison, when under  thg, hostile and unfriondly oyos ol the  matrons.        ���  Tho hotel had givon us 'bread-  cards.' With theso wc secured some  black and sour-tasting broad, done  up in sealed pnpor packages. Under  her breath my compon'on confided  that Hungary waB worse off than  Germany. Hungary was nearly bread-  leBB. Germany had bought Hungary's  Hour supply.  'A fine ally, Germany,' continued  my companion, 'littlo sho cares for  us. Sho doeBn't 'even trust us. Every  letter mailed in Berlin to Budapest  is opened and read; Germany is wonderful, but I hate the people.'  Next morning we started o.tt to  find a place whoro English was tolerated, for my companion could- not  stay on. We hunted up some German-  Americans who had invited American  women peace delegates to come to  Berlin. Their hospitality was boundless. I was to be a guest, and passed  from hand to hand. I saw ir.y freedom vanishing, but was po*wr.'css.  The German-Americans had p Mined  the conversion of every American, I  was seized upon as a the missionary  soizea the cannibal. I tried to exti*i-  cate myself. Bitter little taunts wero  thrust at mo. Did I fear starvation,  or the barbarians? Eventually I capitulated. I was to have ono more  night at the hotel with my gay  friend    before her departure.  That night we went to the Winter  Garden.     The    place waB filled    with  soldiers. Ono feature of the performance was a series of living 'tableaus'  depicting war. They wero intended to  inspire with patriotism.  But the soldiers were silent; only a  mild applause greeted the effort. One  scene, symbolic of    stupendous    hero-i  ism���the   last soldier firing   the "last  shot^-Ras received in grim silence.  All Berlin Grim and Intense.  All Berlin is grim and tense. People  pass and repass on the street. The  shops are open, life goes on. But  there is no genial friendliness, no  lingering over a glass of beer, no bit  of gay Bong. Everywhere there fare  gray, dusty, and torn uniforms.  When a troop of soldiers pass, theit  faces aro pale, their feet drag. The  goose-step has vanished.    *  With departure of my oompanion, tj  settled down in a German ho ue, a  modest 'menage,' but every detail  perfect. All Germany runs without  Motion.  My host is a university professor  his wife an American. Thev aro bit  hospitality, but their zealousnesa  torments mo. I am the heathen whose  soul must be saved.

Better a thousand times that t>e  'Lusitaoia' be sunk and Americans  killed than let Amerioan bulla's rea-a'  the allies to inflict death on Gorman  soldiers.  'American bullets,' ��� hourly this  phrase is flung in my face.  My protest that a? a peace deloir.tj  I am lighting for the prohibition of  traffic in arms and the limitation ot  their manufacture to the government,  brings no relief. Upon some one must  the pent-up fury and hate for despicable America be poured.  I feel like a drowning _ man being  slowly pressed down, down, under  the waves. But pity lor this tragic  couple gives me patience. Behind the  ostentatious display of bread and  the sneering allusions to 'starvation'  and 'barbarity,' 1 see fear and bitterness bred of fear.

A question and n dread  has crept into the heart of the German people:  'What if we should not win?'  The grain supplies are running low.  Not only bread, but fodder for the  animals, is lacking. The cattle are  being killed and put in cold storage  to save the expense of (aodiag. Thet  few cab horses in Berlin fall in the  street from hunger. In all tnins are  printed the following 'Ten Commandments:!'  1. Don't eat more than neoessary.  Don't eat between meals.  2. Cousidor bread sacred. Use every  little piece. Dry bread makes good  soup.  3. Be economical with b.i^ttr and  fat. Uso jam instead of butter. Most  of the fat wo get from abroad.  4. Use milk and cheese.  5. Use much sugar. Sugar is  nourishing.  6. Boil potatoes with the skins  on; then nothing is lost in pooling.  7. Drink less beer and alcohol;  thon tho supply ol rye from whioh  these aro made will be greater.  8. Eat vegetables and fruit. Plant  vegetables in every little piece of  earth. Bo oconomical with preserved  vegetables.  9. Gather all you don't eat for  the animals.  10. Cook with gas and coke. Tho  ashes from coke makes good fertilizer.  Moral.��� Obey these ten commandments, and economize for the Fatherland. The rich must also follow  these commandments.  With the fresh orops has como renewed strength. But when tho fall  comes, what is to be done? There  is no longer a canning industry, for  there is no tin.  In Buch an atmosphere of depression and suppression my free Amerioan spirit suffocates. 1 plan an escape. Somewhoro in Berlin are free  fearless souls. These I muat find. Hy  hosts fear to havo me venture out  alone. One of the American peace do;  legates was driven by an angry mob  from a tram car for speaking English. f  I take my map and study it. I have  the addresses of some social Democrats. How get to them? Hy hosts  do not tolerato such people.  Them I remember the Amerioan embassy and a young man friend. I  plead a luncheon engagement. This  seems safe, and in a cab, unaccompanied, I escape. To my countryman  I explain my prodioament. All absences are to be accounted for by  him.  Then alone, map in hand, I start  out. I walk many weary blocks slinking along side streets to avoid the  complication ol tramenr conversations. I soem to be living in the days  ol conspiracies and -dime novels. And  truly I am, for day bv day tho plot  thickens.  Tho Propaganda Underground  I am received with open arms by the  rebel women, and at oneo nioknamed  the 'criminal.' In them I find the  Germans I sought. Free, foarleas people, 'whose love for the Faiherlnnd is  ao groat that they dare protest.!'  But these women are momentarily in  danger. Their gatherings are secret.  We moot in out-of-the-way plaoes. I  find that my telophono messages are  intercepted; that a perfeotly harmless  letter is never delivered. I am watched. It is hard lo believe. Surely 1  have dropped back into the Hiddle  Ages. I have to pinoh myself to realize I am an American, living in the  twontioth 'century.  Somo innocent affairs, theso clandestine meetings. Hero discussions ol  ways to protest against wnr and  work for poaoo. Truo, wo donounco  tho invasion of Belgium, declare that  Germany began tho war, and speak  with loathing ol tho militarist spirit.  But what American doesn't? The most  revolutionary talk is uttered by a  gray-haired woman, tho mother ol  grown children. A burning flamo,  this woman; her laco stamped with  world suffering, her oyca tho tragio  eyos of a Jane Addams. In a secluded  corner of a restaurant ihe whispers  the  great heresy:  'Germany's salvation lies in Germany's detoat. If Germany wins when  so many of her progressive young mon  have been slain, the people will be  crushed in tho grip of tho mailed fist.'  To this woman, democracy ia greater than any national triumph. With  hor I discussed the collapse of tho So  cial Democrats in thc hour ol need, tho  victory of nationalism over internationalism. She attributes it to military training. During mnn's period of  servioe ho bocomea a Thing. Automatically, he acquires habits ol obedience,  iB reduced to an unquestioning maohine. ' Mechanically, when thc call  oame, the Social Domocrata fell into  lino with tho others.  But with timo has como thought,  and knowledge, knowledge that in tho  first instance Germany's war was not  ono ol solf-dofonoo. But it is now too  late to rebel.   Host ol the Social De  nioerats are at the front. From week  to week and month to month they  have put off protest as unwise.  Only Liebkneoht has made himself  heard. Now he has be n caught up in  the iron hand and Bent out to battle.  Protest.of the Women  But women escaped the spell of militarism. While the government rejoiced  at the submission of its Sooialist men  the women grew active. Organizing a  party of their own they font"'. i'l  bravely.  Last fall Rosa Luxembourg dashed  into the street and addressed a regiment of soldiers.  'Don't go to war, don't Bhoot your  brothers!' she cried.  For this offence she was sent to  prison for a year. Today she lies in  solitary confinemeot. But her Buffering  only inspired the others. In Haroh,  760 women walked to the Reichstag.  As tho memberB entered they shouted:.  'We will have no more war. We  will havo peace!'  Quickly the police dispersed them,  and the order went forth that no  newspaper print one word about the  protest.  Still the women work on. On the  8th of April' nn International Social-  ist Women's Congress was held at  Berne, Switzerland. Ten nations were  reproaented, including all the belligerents.  The task of peace propaganda in  Germany is gigantic. Neither by letter nor by press can news be spread.  Both are censored. The work must  be carried on by spoken word, pasa-  ed from mouth to mouth. The courage of the little band of women I had  'met was stupendous. Through them I  learned to love Germany. Hy life in  Berlin was a double one. I ate and  slept and was unregenerate in one section ol town, and really lived only  when I escaped from 'respectability,'  nnd, strange contradiction of terms,  became���a 'criminal' fighting for peace!  But wherever I was one fact grew  omnipotent, the magnificent organization of Germany. Here lay the country's power and hor weakness. Hor  power, because it made Germany a  solid unit. There were no weak links  in tho chain. Her weakness because it  robbed her people of individuality,  made them cogs iu a machine.  Even in the midst ol war Germany  is superbly run. The lawns are weed-  less, the flower-beds wonderful. The  streets are clean. The tasks the able-  bodied mon left are performed by women, children and old men. Nothing  is neglected. I went through Berlin's  biggest hospital. It was marvellous.  There was ovory apparatus that mind  oan conceive, or science invent. The  building was beautilol, the lawns  gay with jonquils and tulips. Littlo  portable houses had been erected to  care for the wounded. Seventeen of  the staff's doctors have gone to tho  front, but seventeen women physicians have taken their plaoes. Everything iB as before. Germany's discipline is perfect. Thc German people  do not reason and wonder why, lor  them there is only to do slid die.  Everywhere you feel the rolentlojsness  of force and the power of organization.  Preparing for Dreadful Business  As I walked through thc Thiorgarton  one afternoon. I became conscious of  a great rushing buzzing aoi-<e, Ii'.vect-  ly over my head and quite lo v was u  great Zeppelin. I thanked heaven I  wasin Berlin nnd not Paris. Mi. Germans aro busy with thoir Zeppelins.  .Just outside Berlin is a little wooden  city, built to give airships practice in  hurling bombs. Hen toiling lor years  havo erected cities like Berlin, nnd now  other men are practicing dny and  night how to destroy such a city in a  day. What n travesty? It is common  talk in Germany that thoy havo at  last discovered a, bomb that, oneo  ignited, cannot bo put out by water.  If so, heaven help usl  For Germany will never give in. Sho  will fight lo her Inst man. If pushed  to the wall, all the bitterness and fear  that haB crept into the nation will  be directed toward a gigantic effort  to blow up tho world. Germany no  longer cares whom aho hurts���like an  unloved child at hay, sho moans to  smash and kill. Tho pity of it! Nover  was thero a more generous, soft-heart  ed, kindly people. Germany, the land  ol tho Christmas-tree, and folk songs.  and fireside, and gay childish laughter, turned into a relentless lighting  machine. But each individual is  merely a cog firmly fixed in thc national machino, and will go obediently  as long ns the ruling power turns the  crank.  It was with infinito relief that 1  made my departure one morning. The  tragedy of Germany had enton into  my soul. Aa I,waited on Iho platform  for m,. Irain, carloads of soldiers  oame and wont.  Ono great trainful paused for flomo  moments while the mon drank coffee.  A great doflire seized mo to call out  to these men, to beg them not to go.  SYNOPSIS OF COAX HIKING .

Look at the  work of a beehive. It is all oare for  the morrow. The cells are made for  the queens, drones, and worker bees;  the nectar and pollen are gathered  and. stored. ��� Every worker bee gathers  mora than it could possibly eat in its  own lifetime, gathers it from the flowers and carries it back to the hive,  where its store is unloaded by bees  waiting there for tho puruoae. like rait  way men at a goods receiving depot. The honey is packed away in the  cells, sealed down, so that it shall  not turn sour, and there is the supply  for the winter.*  Higher still is the work of the ant.

In much of this they are matched  by the bees, whose architecture  even more wonderful than that of the  ants.

The ants have discovered that the  aphis, or greenfly, gives a sweet juice  and the ants "milk'i-the greenfly cow  They imprison the greenfly, building  pens or sheds for them, as we make  sheds for our cows, and they actually  carry below food which the greenfly  needs, but which tho ants do not.  The harvesting ants toil with enormous energy in carrying grain to  their barns, grains of wheat and barley, seeds of shepherd's purse and  of flowers. It may require the efforts  of a dozen of these little insects to  bear away -a single grain, but great  numbers of grains arc taken down into the earth* and stored in tiny granaries.

KELOWNA, B.C.  mfC7X  The following are additions to tbe  list of wild flowers published weekly >  81. Mariposa lily or "Tulip lily.'  (Calaohortua,���Greek,  meaning leoi'tt;  Nearest loiutioo, Kncxj  For delicacy aud grace it  compares with any hot-house blossom*  About 12 to IS inches in height, with  one or two and sometimes three bell-  shaped flowers on the slender stem,  whioh are three inohes aoross when fully open. Tbe three petals, pointed,  are about.an inch broad and over 11  inohes in length; the three sepals are  less than half an inoh broad but equal  the petals in length, in which our Onl-  achortus, and that of the boundary  country, and perhaps of B. C. generally, differs from Nuttalls, the long  curved sepals adding to the grace of  the flower. The color is usually violet-heliotrope, with a transverse band  ol violet-purple near the base of each  petal whieh also has a gland, inverted' heart or shield shape, and yellow hairs, and the purple oolor repeated below. The six stamens are  light violet becoming bluer. The capsule is about 14 inohes long. Several  flowers of a rose-pink, color were found.  82. Eriogonum heracloides has compound umbels of cream-colored flowers,  somewhat resembling those of Hera-  cleu'm, (cow-parsnip, in the unbelliferae  family), but belongs to the buckwheat  family, and the flower is six-parted.  Leaves simple, and the bracts in a  whorl. The flowers often become suffused with an old rose or Indian lake  shade, an attractive red "art color."  In dry soil.  83. Phocelia circinata is very common on dry soil. The dull lilac flowers are in bristly, dense, congested  coiled spikes.    Leaves simple.  84. Western Forget-me-not. (Lappulo  occidental's) seems but a poor relation of the .favorite mj'osotis flowers,  but its small flowers are of an intense blue, and when it grows to a  foot or more m height, branching at  the top, it is quite decorative. It has  a peculiar musty odor, like some others of the Borage family, this probably serving to attract certain inseots.    In dry soil.  85. Fringed Loose-strife. (Lysimao-  hia oiliata), grows in meadow land  and thickets, to a height of over 3-  feet at its best, branched, having  many pairs of yellow flowers and, reddish apricot color at tbe centre, three-  quarters of an inch across. Primrose  family, with parts in fives. Leaves  opposite, ovate-lanceolate, pointed, the  larger ones 3 to 4 inches long. The  corolla lobes are rounded with a sharp  point at the apex.  86. Common Self-heal, (Prunella  vulgaris). Labriate family, having a  4-sided stem. Flowers violet and heliotrope itt oolor, buds intense violet-  purple, calj ii vinous purple, in a  smooth cylindrical spike, in tiers of 6  87. Chicory, Common Succory or  Blue Sailors. (Chicorium intybus). A  spreading plant, root-leaves spatulate,  upper leaves smaller, oblong. Flowers  bright lavender-blue, the rays, 6-  toothed at the truncate apex. Perennial.    July to October.  The black-berried elder here appears to be Sweet Elder. (Sambuous  Canadensis), though this is variously  described as to the shape of the cyme  by botanists and probably varies. Th.  earliest flowering shrub, having early  in May fragrant yellowish-white flowers in cymes broader than high and  rather pyramidal. The drupes are purple, becoming blaok, rips as early as  July. The leaves are soft and often  large, the leaflets 2 to 4 inches Jong,  oval pointed, and scented when crushed. The root has a pungent odor.  Locations near wator.  80. The blue-berried elder, (Sambuous glanoa), flowering June and July,  has flat topped cymes, often over six  inohes broad. The berries are larger  than in the above, and covered with a  bloom whioh gives them a color ol  amaltblue, or nearly French grey. The  leaves are stiller, sharply toothed, the  leaves often stipulate.  90. Blue Vervain or Wild Hyssop,  (Verbena hastata), stem erect, 3 to 4  (est or more? Leaves opposite, oval-  pointed, serrate'. Has narrow spikes  of small B-lobed flowers, color, Bis  hop's violet. Perennial. Meadows and  roadsides.

Former German Steamer  Will Carry B.C. Lumber  Another result of the effortB made  by tho provincial government on behalf of the lumber industry is announced by the Minister of Lands, the  Admiralty having agreed to turn over  to tho British Columbia government,  for one voyage from this coast to the  United Kingdom1, the I steamer "Gra-  hamland" now at the Falkland Islands. The "Orahamland" has an  interesting history, having been until  Bhe destruction of Admiral von Spee'B  squadron, the German collier "Josep-  hona," when she surrendered to one of  thr British warships.  The ship was offered through the  Agent-Goncral, to the British Columbia government for the transport of a  lumber cargo to tho United Kingdom,  not necessarily for admiralty purposes, and this being so, all timber shippers wero notified and asked to make  offer* for the vessel, the amount o!  the charter being .���6,600. The bid of  the Cameron Lumber Company of Victoria, was accepted, and the "Orahamland" is expected to arrive for  August loading. Her capacity is given as 550 standards equal to 1,100,000  feet, und the securing of such a vessel  nt a time when tonnage is Bcarco by a  B. C, firm even at such a high figure  is a matter for congratulation. It  is hoped that tho "Orahamland" will  not be the last of the captured or interned German ships to be utilized in  the lumber carrying trade from this  coast.  WANTED!

That only about twenty men of thc  original 120 who left Rossland with  the first overseas contingent are now  alive is the statement made by C. P.  Jones in a letter home.  A traveller arrived in Ainritocdam  from Ghent, Belgium, claims .that,  revolt took place on June 15, on the  part of the inhabitants of Malines.  German soldiers fired into tlio crowd  and the traveller says seven hundred  civilians were killed. Since this oc  currence, according to Lho ern\ ellei*  Malines has been isolated by.mu-nit  of electrically charged \vlc3 Nups.  The French chamber of deputies has  adopted a measure to burn unidentified bodies at the front, and to bury  those which had been identified. The  deputy who proposed the measure said  the matter waB urgent on account of  the h,cat, the military authorities not  being in a position to bury all bodies  promptly during heavy fighting. He  discussed the religious and sentimental  reasons against incineration and cited  precedents established in other ways-  Today the solo effectual measure of  avoiding contagion was to bum the  dead on the field of battle.  The Novoe Vremya correspondent at  Warsaw says the German Empress visited the oflioers hospital at Posen recently and was carried out in a fainting condition in consequence of the reply of one of the officers to her attempts at consolation. The officer, all  four of whose limbs had been amputated while his body was covered with  shrapnel wounds, lay very near death.  When the Empress reached his bedside and asked if he had any wishes,  tho Gorman replied: "I wish Kmpuror  William and his children may suffer  what I have."
