KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA THURSDAY, JUNE 3, 1915.-6 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  FRENCH SOLDIERS BUILDING A HUT IN   THE AHGONNE F0.UEST  Prior to the present war armies were rapidly moved about, the so'dicrs  using tents for shelter. The use of trenches entailing a large amount  of work and slow progress has caused many shelters ol a permanent character to be built.  30,000 Skilled Laborers  Wanted in England  The demand for skilled labor in tho  old oountry is becoming a matter ol  extreme urgency to the government,  and .inducements are being offered to  get men from Canada to go over to  work in the ammunition factories or  in! other lines where their servioes may  be necessary. Messrs. Barnes and 'Vyod  ham have been sent out as representatives of the British government with  the object of touring the oountry in  the search for men. Mr. Barnes is  labor M. P., while Mr. Wyndhuui in  a member of the British Board of  Trade. Their itinerary embraces most  of the principle cities and industrial  centres. They are to be in Calgary  June 15th, Kamloops 30th, Vancouver  31st and Victoria 33rd.  It is stated that some 30,000 men  are wanted in all and the government  is offering free passage and return on  the condition of not loss thnn six  months stay in the factories.   0   Creamery Plant is  Thoroughly lip-Mate  Remainder of Machinery Arrived and in Operation  Local Syndicate Will  Operate Cannery  Arrangements Made to Lease  Local Building for Season  It will be good news to the people     Tbo opening of the trallic on     thu  of Kelowna and district that there in  recently completed Kettle Vnlley Rail-  Traffic Opens on  I Kettle Valley Railway  B.nquet Held in Penticton to  Celebrate Event  every prospect of the oannery hoing  operated thiH year as usual. Eye?  since tho liquidation of tho old company efforts havo been made in v-iw  ons quarters to formulate some scheme  of keeping tho plant going. Not only  is it highly necessary that the farmer  should have every possible outlet f.��r  his produce, but the operation of the  cannery provides a pay-roll whioh  would l�� welcome indeed to many dur  ing this time of depression.  The difficulty, of coume, has liefii  the financing, but thanks to thu real  practical local patriotism displayed by  a number of business men tn town  even this difficulty has boon so far overcome, that it is definitely announo-  ed that operations will very Shortly  be commenced.  Ten thousand dollars has been subscribed by the Bmall looal syndicate  which has been formed. This consists  of Messrs. J). Ldekio, 1). W. Sutherland, D. Lloyd-.Jonos, P. B. Willits  & Co., Geo. Ritchie, W. Haug, K. (i,  Cross, T. Bulman and Dr. Boyce, with  possibly a tenth. By subscribing  91000 eaoh a substantial oapital sum  waB thus created, and backed by promises of aid from wholesale houseman agreement has been entered into  with the liquidator to take over the  plant for a year. At the end of that  time should the success of the enterprise -warrant it somo moro permanent  arrangement will bo entered into.  Philharmonic Concert  The Philharmonic Sooiety held another of their high-class concerts last  Tuetday evening and although tbe  attendance was perhaps, due to a variety of circumstances, not so great its  might have been desired, as a musical  event the conoert was a decided triumph.  The orohestral selections were exceedingly clever in thoir rendering,and  sufficiently varied. The soloists were  Hiss Frances Pearson, L.R.A.M., anl  Mra. A. I,. Soames, both ot wnom  were enthusiastically encored. Hiss  Allison Hogarth, who contributed  pianoforte selections, and Hr. Drury  Pryoe on tho violin, met with tho  usual appreciative reception.  Altogether tho affair was highly enjoyable from beginning to end.  AVENDER.-T0 Hr. and  Avender, on Hay 21st,  Wm.

The remainder of the plant for the  new creamery arrived last Friday aud  after a day or two apent in installing  and cleaning a start has been made,  though of course it may be somo littlo  time before things are in full swing.  Everybody who- has visited the  creamery so far has expressed the  greatest approval, and certainly it  would be difficult to get together  neater and more compact and yet up-  to-date plant. Everything is planned  and arranged ior the most expeditious  and thoroughly sanitary handling ol  the work.  The cream as it is received is weighed and the weight recorded. If il iu  sour cream dostined for butter making  it is plaoed in the ripenor, a most ingenious contrivance for pasteurizing  and bringing tho cream to the proper  stage for churning. It is a largo met  al lined tank, thoroughly insulated to  maintain the temperature. In it re  volves, by eleotrio power a spiral pipe  through which can tie passed steam lor  boating tbe cream, or ice cold water  for cooling it as may be required.  From the ripener the oroam is passed along a pipo diroot to the churn  This churn is perhaps one of tho most  up-to-date pieces of machinery in thc  country.involving improvements whioh  have only just been plaoed on the  market. It is innilo by the well-known  IVl.nval lirm who indeed havo supplied  most of tho plant.  A feature of the churn which will  perhaps surprise math- is that tho butter is not only churned, but worked,  washed, and finished right in the  churn, and is only removed to be  moulded Into bricks ready tor sale.  A boiler to tho roar of the building  furnishes stenm under pressure which  is carried to various points, alongside  the watar pipe and so connected that  live steam, hot water at nny temperature, or perfectly cold water oan 'be  had instantly for washing cans anl  other uses. ' '  Samples are taken from each consignment of cream as it enters und is  placed in bottles. Each farmer lias  his own bottle, into whloh a sample is  plaoed ol every shipment of cream he  sends. Periodically thoso samples are  tested for percentage ol butter fat and  upon the result of thc test, the amount  due to the farmer is based. A stenm  driven Babcook tester is provided for  thia purpose. Many onquirios havo  been made as to the price to bo paid  for orenm. but it has not yet 'wen pos  slble to give more than mero approximate figures. One thing is rortain,  however, that as tho creamery ;s established, primarily for tho benefit of  the fanners, every possible ami, will  be given to them for their product.  1.0.(1 .T. WEJ8KLY MBKTINV,  Last TuofHay was "apple night' ut  the ftood Templar's meeting. The  program, which consisted of songs,  readings and recitations, all. r.liout  apples was highly enjoyed by all present. After tho program apples ware  handed around.  Nest Tueedny night will be an open  night when anyone who likes to enjoy a good time will be welcome. A  splendid program has bean arranged  which will begin about 8 o'clock. F.v-  eryone is welcome and a special invitation is oxtonded to all whij arc interested in temperance worn. Everything is entirely froe. After lhe program refreshments will be dispensed.  way was celebrated Monday evening at  Penticton with a grand banquot, at  which ninny important ra'.'.ioad and  government o'lloia's and leading lupre-  sentaliveH from all parts of the valley  wero present. The guests numbered  about 150 persons, und 'ncii'dcl Mr.  .!, .1. Warren, proaidont ol uio road,  and Mr. 0. C. Fisher, superintended  and traflie managor, tho lion. Thus.

The commencement of the lian-juol  was delayed until about eleven o'clock  in the ovening owing to th-1 late arrival of the train from the -'list and  was continued until nearly fnur o'clock  the following morning.  It must have been a proud niO'Umt  for President J. .1. Wnrren, sayi the  Ponticton Herald, as the banquet  speakers poured upon him a host of  compliments upon the able way in  which he. with Ohio! Engineer "J0O11I-  loch, had carried on the consU'iiotioii  of the 275 mile line from Mi i'V.iy to  Merritt during the pnst five years.  As the speakors rightly snid, the  occasion was one of hardly Jess consequence to the district than the actual  founding of tho town. It marked tl.n  actual ��� linking up of the Okanagan  and tho coaBt, of this vntiev nnd the  Boundary and Kootenay. It mount the  coming of a new short line, not only  to tho big cities of tho west, but also  to the prairie land to the east. It  meant added development in Southern  Pj'itish Columbia in mining, '.unibor  ing and mixod fanning. It ,vns die  lined to bring about added prosperity  to tho coaBt and therefore additional  wealth to the Okanagan; it meant the  diverting of traffic ol Southorn British  Columbia from American roads lo 1  Canadian line.  Vernon Wins Lacrosse- Game  The local intermediate lacrosse team  journeyed! up to Vernon today anl  crossed sticks with the Vernoui'OT i*  the return g'amo early thia alternoon,  meeting defoat by the score of fl to -'.  Owing to other sports that had been  arranged tho game was oo'lej voiy  early and' a number of the players  of the Kelowna team reailuil tho field  just in time to play and started in  without even a minute lo warm up  or stretch their woary limbs nltjr  tho trip up and to this faot thoy lay  tho greatest share of ere lit ,1m their  defeat as tho Vernonitcs seeurud four  goals in tho lirst quartor beiore Kel;  owna could get going.  In the second Kolowna iicoreJ one  and the third quartor resulted in ono  moro lor oaon aido. /rbo final quarter netted Kolowna two and Vernon  one bringing tho final total up to .is  to four in favor of the home team.  The gamo was very clean throughout and after the first quarter, whioh  was rather loose and slow as Inr as  Kelowna was concerned was as good  a game as has'been seen in the ���valley  in some time.    .

Boilding of the  Kettle Valley Line  *'-��� following account of tho oityam-  st'inces .* tending tho construction of  tho Kettle \u'i��y railway, just opened  to traffic, and furnisUing an nliai'na-  tive routo to and from the Okanagau  is from the current issue of the IV-n-  ticton Herald, which issued a special  number in honor of the occasion:  The Kottle Valley Railway ��'���>.��-  pany, a subsidiary company -jf the t\  P.H., started its work in 11)10, when  Chief Engineer Andrew KoUulloc-h  put a number of assistants at walk  on locatiug. Owing to tho urgent no  Biro for railway construction which  was manifested by tho people of ih-j  Kootenay, Boundary and L.o'i'.h-.-rn  Okanagan districts, following upon  tho decision of tho provincial government to aid in the construction of ihe  line, it was deemed advisable to carry  grading close to the heels of the locating .surveyors. This was dono ut  Merritt and Midway, whoro uhj country is comparatively flat.  Tho first grading on the line, whicn  extends from Midway to Merritt with  a cut-off to Ilopo, was dono nt -ho  Merritt end on .July, 1910, by the M.io-  donnell Ozowski Company, which received a contract- for grading from  Merritt, south to the Ottor Creek  summit, a distance of thirty m,U*n.  This grading was finished in IDll.  The next work was done at Midway, where Rice & Co. had a contract  for thirty-five miles of grading WMl  from Midway.    This waa    started    iu  1910 and finished the next yoar.  Surveys on tho route were carried on  for two years, there being insufficient  time to complete them before construction, so therefore the surveying and  the grading went on simultaneously.  Not a little difficulty was exporinuood  in getting the final location lines flu  the Kettle Valley Railway, in.*vud of  running with mountain chains, runs  against them, so to speak, crossing  three, fhe Kettle Valloy-Okan.gan,  the Okunagan-Similkamoen -ind tlio  Hope rnnge.  In 1911 u grading contract wns  given to Itioe & Co., from mile \th,  west to Midway, which wan iuiibo.1  the same year, on to mile 75, known  as Hydraulic summit. This work waa  finished in 1912, with the exception  of the bridges, which were built in  1913.  Rice &   Co.   also got   a contract in  1911 for the section of grading from  Penticton to Osprey Lake, which was  completed the following year.  The contract for the stretch trom  Hydraulic summit west to Pentioton,  a distance of 58-J mileB, was let that  same year to Grant, Smith & Co., aud  finished in 1913.  On the other end ot the line 'iwohy  Bros., got a grading contract for 13  miles of line from Coldiwater Junction on the Hope cut-off to Coqnihalln  tummit. This was finished the next  year.  In 1912 MoArthur Bros., obtained a  grading contract for 40 miles of line  from Coqirilmlln summit went to  Hope, which was finished in 1914,  with the exception of a number of  bridgee.  In 1^18 a contract was awarded  Outhrie. McDougall & Co., for tho  grading on the line from Oiprsy  Lake to Pentioton, a distance of 31  mllee. No work wae dono on this  until the following year, when ou-  w it finished.  IBAKINtPOWDERf  The above briol review carries tlio  line construction through the grading  end of it.  The first steel was laid in 1910,  whon ton miles ol it was put down by  Mncdonell, Gzowski In Co., south from  Morritt. In 1911 Rice & Co., bud :ir>  miles of stool wont Irom Midway and  another 20 miles was laid on the Morritt end by the contractors thorr.  In 1912 Penticton Baw its first steel  soven miles boinir laid west lo Trout.  Crook canyon by Kettle Valley workmen, together with ono-half miles from  the local dock to tho yards. Another  11 milos ol steel was added on lho  Rice contract stretch from Mile 25,  west of Miilfivay, to Mile 46.  Tho year 1913 saw tho finishing ol  Btrol from Mile 40, west ol Midway to  Milo 75, "Tydraufio summit, by the  railway itself, K.V.R., workmon that  same year also laying seven miles r,I  stool from Hyflrnulic summit 'o  wards Pentioton. Tn addition, the K,  V.B., finished utoel laying Irom  Trout Creek to Mile 40 west ol l'onticton, being io Osprey Lake, and  mils ns well as 11 miles on the  Twohy Bros., grading contract from  Coldwnter Junction to Coquilmlla  rummit.  Last year, 1914, steel was finished  by the K. V. ft., between Penticton  nnd Tfydraulic summit, 51 miles lining laid. Two additional miles of  rails were also put down by the vail-  way on the Twohy Bros, contract nt  Coquilmlla and threo miles on the  McArthur Bros., soction over the Oil;  quihalla summit. Anothor two miles  was laid at the Hope end, from the  0, P. It. tracks to thc river bridge  there. It can thus be seen that ut  tho same timo as the railway carried  on grading in one soction it was hurrying rnil-lnying in anothor. Further  more, whilo the line was being tmill  lietwoen Midway and Morritt eon'rnc-  tors and railway workmen were pushing ahoad tho work on tho Hope rut-  off in order to havo it finished as  quickly ns possible after tho other  lino.  This year steel was finished from  Osprey f.nko to I'rinceton.  This year also another eight miles  of steel was laid at the Hope un<l of  the Hope cut-off, and two miles inme  wns laid at the upper end, leaving  25 miles more steel to lie laid to finish the cut-off line. Thin work will  certainly be finished this year.  An interesting feature of tho K.V.H.  work wns the telegraph line construction. Last yenr the Ponlioton Eleotrio  Co., huilt 5S miles ol telegraph irom  Penticton to Hydraulic summit, Rico  & Co., having built 75 miles from Hydraulic summit to Midway. Hiee &  Co., also built from Pentioton to Osprey Lake. This year Mr. J. J. Dunn,  of Penticton, hns the contract for M  miles from Osprey Lako to Hope, 'i ho  section from Osprey l.ako to Princeton  has ulready been finished.  The Kettlo Vnlley Railway company is now asking for tenders for the  construction of snow sheds on the Co-  quihalla line to Hope, to be built this  year.  The big bridges on the Kettle Valley tine will be among the objects of  greatest interest, to tho traveller nu  the ncw southorn B. 0. steel highway.  Tho biggest bridge ol all is, ol  course, thc one flung over the Krasar  river at Hope, where tho cut-off line  turns eastward (rom the C. P. 11.  main lino into the .Hope Mounluins.  This structure is 9607eot long, having  four steel spans of 2-10 foot enoh. A  highway for pedestrians and vehiolei  is provided abovo t,ho railway 'rack  dock of tho bridgo. The concrete piers  and foundation work wero built by  Armstrong and Morrison, ol Vancouver, and the steel superstructure by  tho Canadian Bridge Co. The bridge  was finished this year.  The highest bridge on the K. V. 11.  is that at Trout Creek canyon, a'  few miles out of Pentioton. It is 245  foot abovo the water. The stool work  on the bridge, whioh was built in 1913  is 250 feet long and the approaches  450, making a total length of 700 feet.  Bice & Co., built the foundations und  woodwork and the Canada Foundry  Co., put in the steel superstructure.  Two or three ol the bridges now under way in tho Hops cut-off section  are worthy of more than passing interest. There is one over I.minor  Creek whioh is 220 feet high and WKI  feet long. MoArthur Bros., have the  foundation work and the Canadian  Bridge Co., the steel. Another bridge  over Slide Creek, is 400 feet long,  having a single span of 920 feet. MoArthur Bros., are building the Inundations, whilo the steel work is in tho  hands of the Dominion Bridge Ou.  Canyon Creek, east ol Pentioton, is  bridged by a wooden trestle, which is  no lsss than 180 fast high.

Kelowna Record THPHSDXY, JTJNB 8, IMS  KBIrOWNA   RECORD  immmmmmimmml  BrtJfawltrahi* lata FxmiM  The best of farmers realize vory  keenly the supreme importance of  wise and efficient farm management. It  means bo muoh to the final outcome.  The man who is a student of his farm  very loon gains the conviction that  the subject it bigger than he is; that  he needs all the help, both physical  and mental, that he can employ to  make things come out right. And then,  with the best of forecast, he is subject  to the hazard of.the weather which  often sets back and thwarts him in his  wisest and best endeavors. As one  farmer once remarked to us who was  formerly a railway engineer and t  - good one too: "I used to think thnt  railroading oould beat any vooation  in compelling a man to kesp his ��it��  on their feet all the time; but farming  if you do it right, can beat the railway twice oyer."  Some mon get discouraged in trying  to do as well as they know. There  are so many hindrances in the way.  Hut there is this to be said of tho  farm: It is a plaoe for the best trained brain, the wisest foresight and lhe  largest use of what science has to  give if we but know it, and there is  no place for bettor business management that the farm. Farmers is n  rule do not appreciate tho possibilities  of their own farms. Farming lias not.  been' considered a learned profession.  From father to son for many genera-  tions it has not beon thought necessary to bs well educated in farming?.  It is for that reason that you ue so  few young men developing 1 licit'  minds and making an intellect,ml  study of this pursuit.  But conditions ara changing. The  expense of living is increasing, the soil  is growing less and less productive in  the hands of nine out of ten farmers.  the requirements of town life aud the  hope of winning a big fortune arb  taking away tho boat intellectual product of the farm. The mistaken notion that a man oan never win distinction in sooiety by being a [armor  misleads a host of voung mon who are  raised on the farm. And then thorn  is the strange 'Unreasonable idea thnt  thousands of farmers have that thero'  is no need of giving their sons special i  eduoation for farming. They nre willing to spend their hard earnings to  send a boy through college to make,  vory likely, only a third rate lawyer  or doctor of him.

"There are no bod roads :n the  sky," ho declares, "and a tello,v can  just skim over the woods and mountain peaks and muddy roads and  everything else���and do it in hall, a  day."  This all sounds very line, but nny  airman could tell the.

Tilov  do not see that there is a still moro  strenuous work side to every other  pursuit if a man wins its best rewards.  But the light ol a truer conception  of what real farming moans    to    the  farmer himself,   to his mind as   well  as   his hands,    is    dawning    on   the'  world.

Rae's Cash Store  Closing Out the Richmond Stock at Kelowna  How Seeds Travel  Some seeds make journeys with  wings, and others travel from plane to  place by attaching themselves to the  clothes of men or the hair of animals;  still others make their journey in the  stomach of birds. These are facts that  will interest the7 young people who are  taking an interest in agriculture aad  are working in' a garden at home of Ht  Behool. According to tbe United  States Department of AgriOuItutVe  specialist, the seed as the starting  point iu the life cycle of a plant may  woll bo studied first by young gardeners.  The seeds of tho maple tree an particularly interesting.    They     are provided with wingB,   and when thsy  become detached from the parent   trees  gcntlo breeze will carry them a    con  siderable distance from the branch to  which they aro attached.    There   are '  many forma    and modifications of the  winged seed, as the linden, ths   horn-!  beum, the olm, and    the pine.    Tbwe  are all common trees from which 3*00*9  for illistrative purposes can be    secus '  ed. j  Some seeds are also provided with  parachutes or umbrellas, not for pro '  toction from rain and storm, but Ior j  purposes of locomotion. The seeds ol  the thistle, the milkweed, and the dandelion, in fact, the seeds of all plants  which have a oottony growth, are provided for these aerial journeys.  Besides those, some seeds are pro  vided with hooked appendages by  which they oan attach themselves to'  the clothing ol men or to the hair of;  animals, so that they become trans-  ported from place to place. Other seeds  have hard seed coats, or shells, whieh  are covered in many cases by edible  fruit. Tho fruits are eaten by birds,  but the seeds are not digcBted, and in  this way become distributed from place  to place. Thc groves of cedar whloh  ore characteristic of the landscape in  many sections of the country, it will  be noted, aro chiefly placed among tho  lines of fences or fence rows. Tllo  fruit of the cedar is an edible one, but  the seed is not digested, 'and in this  the oxistonco of these hedge rows ol  cedars is explained. CherricB, grapes.  and other fruits aro to a considerable  extent disseminated in like manner.  Tho hard nuts of our nut-bearing  trees are not used as food by birds or  large animals, but are usually sought  by squirrels and small rodent, whieh  are in the habit of gathoring awl  burying them in various places or  storing them in large quantities for  winter use. Tho result is that a considerable percentage of those whioh are  buried in this manner are never rediscovered by those hiding them, and  in time nature causes the hard shell  to orack and open, amd tho warmth  and moisture of' the soil brings the  germ contained in the kernel into life,  and a tree springs into existence. It  will be noted that the nuts which were  buried by the squirrels did not geimin-  ate immediately after being buried,  but waited until the warm weather  of tho spring came before thoy put  forth thejr tender shoots. This is  not because they willed it, but because the hard outer walls of the shell  would not admit the air and water  to the germ, so as to stimulate its  growth.  It was neoessary that the shell be  frown and broken by the aotion of tho  frosts and the weather beforo moiiluro  oould gain an entrance to' cause the  swelling of the germ. This peculiarity  whan taken advuutago ol coinmeroia-ly  is called stratification. Seeds with  hard shells, suoh as cherries, peaches,  plams, and the like, have to ba stratified���that is, thsy must bs planted iu  ths fall where the plants are to grow,  or they must be packed away in boxes  ol sand in a position where they will  freeze and remain frown during lho  winter, in order that they may germinate the following spring. If seeds of  this character are stored and Kept dry  during the winter they will not germinate if planted in the spring. Seeds  with thin coats, however, tike peas  beans, etc, if treated in like manner,  will be destroyed by the aotion of tho  cold, and no plants will result from  planting them in the autumn. Such  seeds must, from the nature of the  oase, be retained in a dry and comparatively warm plaoe during the winter season in order that their vitality  may not be destroyed.

The game was ons of those marked  throughout with sensational fielding  stunts, and even the Publio school  team displayed wonderful skill, in fact  for the first time this season, in spite  of the. faot that they'were defeated by  a score of 19 to 4 they looked like  a real ball team and played a far better game than the score would indicate. They are, of course, weak in  the pitohing department and many ol  the player., although good in their  own class are not big and strong  enough tb contest successfully witb  the other and larger teams of tbe  league. They are, however putting up  a game but losing fight, muoh tbe  same as the Rutlanders did last season, and perhaps their efforts will  yot win them a game before the close  of the season. Rutland, it will lie remembered won the last-game of. the  league last year, the only win ol tlui  season. . I  HIGH SCHOOL LOSE TO ELLISON  The game at the oity park last Saturday afternoon between Ellison and  the high school was indeed one for  blood, as each team needed the game  tn have a chanoe at the much coveted  pennant.  The High school team started o'lt.  strong and took the lead in the openings, but held it for only a short  time as Ellison began hitting tbe ball  and forged ahead in the fourth inuing  and were not again overtaken.  Both teams played good ball but  the game was what may be termed a  pitcher's battle with Sutherland and  Kinoaid opposing eaoh other. Kincaid  however had one of his good days and  slightly outpitched Sutherland, although on a couple occasions lie too  was hit pretty freely, but eaoh linn  tightened up before too muoh damage'  was done.  The feature of the game waB the  hitting of Munford, who appeared to  like Sutherland's pitching. He secured n  single, a double and a home run out  of four trips to the plate.  The final score was 13 to 9 in lavor |  of Ellison.    This    crowded the High  school team down into third place in  the league standing, Ellison going into  seoond place.  Following is the standing, including  last Saturday's games:  Where is the Enemy?  (By Dr. C. W. Saleeby,   in   the Daily  " Chronicle,' London.)  The drunkard is not our enemy in  himself. Certainly we are his. We  lioenoe alcohol, provide temptation ' at  every corner, recite the word* 'Lead  us not into temptation' at part ul our  national religion, and then punish our  victim. Wo should pity him, and be  ashamed of ourselves, and humbly  thankful to our heredity and environment that we are not in his oase.  The,publican is not our enemy in  himself. The Registrar-General's figures prove that the publican and his  servants practise the most dangerous  of tirades. Constantly exposed to temptation they often fall���being human���  and when trades and occupations are  compared, these poor fellows head the  lists of mortality. Little need is there  for us to attack them,, who nurse  so dread an enemy within their own  bosoms. They must be compensated  now.  The public house is not our enemy  in itself. The object of this argument  is to direct our action by clearing our  minds. What is the matter with pub-  lie houses? They are conveniently  plaoed resorts for talk and leisure und  amusement and play, all admirable  things, and they dispense food and  drink, whitout whioh no living thing  oan live. Why should they be closed  now, when they can perform suoh invaluable national funotions? When  more than now did the nation need  convenient places for shelter, rest, en  tertainment and refreshment? There  they are, completely fitted, and the  publican and his servants in attendance. Let us use and be grateful for  them.  Alcohal is the enemy. Let us provoke  no civil war nor recrimination, but  unite against the common enemy.  We have too often abused and attacked the drunkard,���or tiie publican,  or the public house, instead of the  real enemy of all men. And 1 appeal  to temperance people that we rid ourselves of this blot upon our character.  Sugar is an invaluable food and  fuel for the muscles, and the other  motors and furnaces of the body. Thc  yeast plant turns it into alcohol and  carbonic acid, two poisons directly injurious to every form of animal life.

The Entomological  Branch of the Department of Agriculture haB just issued Bulletin No. V, on  the army worm, prepared by Mr. Arthur Gibson, chief assistant entomologist, who has oharge of investigations  on insects affecting field crops. In this  publication of 34 pages a full description is given of the remarkable outbreak ol this notorious caterpillar  which occurred in eastern Canada in  1914. The recent outbreak waa It",  most severe of any which occurred in  Canada, and the damage caused is estimated at $300,000, five-sixths ol  which took place in the province of  Ontario. The value of the trenching  method of control was amply lemon-  started. No matter how big the nd-  vancing army of worms were, it v.'.is  shown that crops could be saved fion  their ravages. In the bulletin th* insect is desoribed in all its stages, nnd  methods of controlling it are jivax  A full discussion is included on li,e  life-history and habits of the worm,  its lood plants, natural enemies, etc.  Many of the dairy cows one i-eee in  herds all over the country do not piy  for their keep. We are all aware that  animal* which are always ailing and  are bad doers are not Worth keeping,  and the majority of farmers get rid  of such animals as hastily aa they  can. Mot so, however, with thoso animals which are always eating, look  well, and make excellent beef animals,  I but which only give their quart or so  ot milk per day. These, for some reason or other, many keep on year alter year, quite oblivious, it would  seem, of the fact that the sooner they  were sold for beef the better, not only  for the benefit of the farmers but also  for that of the community at largo. V  deep milking cow can easily give $50  worth of milk more per annum than  a poor milker. We are probably not  so aware of the fact that we may  easily lose money on the inferior animal all her days, and eventually sell  her for less money for beef than wa  might have done at the commencement of her umemunerative career.  Not only does suoh on animal tat  valuable food, but she also occupies  a space that should be taken by a  superior animal.  The cows one should keep in the  herd are those of a strong constitution, good thr'vora and deep milkers.  The giving of large quantities ol milk j  produces a great strain on an animal,  and only those with strong constitutions can withstand it. It matters  little or nothing to the ordinary I "inn  er as to the other points in his animals so long as they fulfil those  given above.  The best way, and the cheapest, fir  a farmer to improve his dairy stock  is by breeding bis own cattle, electing theee from the most pr.ilitarue  members of his herd. To as��e lain  the animals from which to breed he  should certainly keep milk records.  If any ol the cows, in the case of  Shorthorns, give less than 600 ijalloiu  per annum he should get rid of thein.  Milk records are of little value to  the farmer who keeps them unless he  takes advantage of- the information  they give, and carefully weeds out undesirable gnimals. How can one ex-  peot to improve a herd of dairy catllvi  by keeping all the animals in the  herd? This may seem an incredible  thing for a farmer-who keeps milk records to do, and yet I have known  several who did it. Bather than produce a somewhat smaller supply of  milk af au increased profit they keep  on the unremunerative animals aud  so produoe 'more milk, but at less  profit, eventually than they would  have done had they produced the  smaller quantity. Surely H a farnw  can produce a oertain quantity ot milk  per day with a clear profit upon every  gallon of milk he obtains, he is well  advised to produce this quantity, mid  no more, il by keeping a few more  animals he produces more milk b.it  loses upon every extra drop he raises  BUILDING, SILOS  Totals  1.35  Total precipitation lor month  130  3.55  Germany has invented a cheap,  short-range torpedo' for use against  transports and other unarmed ships,  It has range ol from 1,000 to 1,500  yards and instead of carrying 250 So  300 pounds of gun oottoa takes but  100 pounds, or less, and needs but  simple mechanism.  Kamloops has been suffering from an  epidemic of fires, seven occurring in  one night last week. Some of the fires  were undoubtedly of incendiary origin  and suspicions are entertained that  alias enemies nny be at the 'wttora  of them.  Humors are persistently being circulated that a German spy caused tho  explosion whioh destroyed the Steamer  Prince.. Irene at Shearness with a  loss or more than three hundred lives.  The Admiralty has ordered an investigation of the disaster, but it is do  olarad that lhe explosion will svely  be lound to have been due to an acoident. Outside of bits ol floating  wreckage tnare is no traoe of the Irene  in the harbor. The explosion whioh  wiped out the crew of two hundred  and fifty, and seventy-eight doekytrd  employees, literally bled the ��te��mer  te atoms.  For the purpose of showing farmers  throughout the province the advantage of using silage for the winter feeling of farm animals, the Livestock  Branch of the Department of Agrioulture will superintend the construction  ol silos in a number of agricultural  centres of British Columbia, during J he  next few weeks. The pluws that will  lie visited are Burton, Arrow Lakes,  Revelstoke, Kelowna, l.odysmith, Summerland, Pentioton, Salt Spring Island, Armstrong,, Dennison Station  and J.miner.  One ol the requirements is that tho  farm on which the proposed silo would  be built grow five acres ol folder  corn.  The purpose of this work is to introduce thc silo to various districts of  the-province whero it may prove profitable, and to demonstrate to the  fanners that a serviceable silo may lis  constructed at comparatively low oost.  The use of silos in many parts ul thc  continent has proved to be not only  an admirable, but an indispensable  factor to tbe modern farm for storing  green food and fodder.  During the fall ol the year silo filling  demonstrations will be conducted at a  number of points in British Colinbia  by a staff of the Livestock Branch for  the purpose of illustrating the proper  methods of filling. ,  Hay in car lots will now be odniic-  ted into Canada from Minnesota, also  North and South Dakota. Suon Importations had been prohibited on acoount ol the foot and mouth dis.jese.  . The longer the milk remains in tho  udder the more it is impoverished by  absorption. Any irregularities in tbe  milking or management ol the, oows,  will tend to lessen the milk flow and  cut the profit..  Considerations  for the  Business Men  WE have devoted  a considerable  amount of both time and  space in trying to convince the general public  of the unprofitable plan  of buying their supplies  from mail order houses,  and thus sending money  OUT of their own town  and receiving no more  than they could get for  it at home. The same  principle applies to the  business man in the matter of Printing. There  are some who have not  considered this. They  get their Printing orders  executed by outside offices, and yet expect the  people of their home  town to quit the mail  order houses and deal  with them.  We have every facility for doing all kinds of  Commercial and High-  Class Printing, and by  giving us your orders  you will not only boost  your own town but directly help your own business by keeping money  circulating at home.

RUMORS STARTED IN FUN  CAUSE MUCH ANX1E1Y  Last Thursday a couple well known  young men weighed anchor and itart  ed out on a cruise to Okanagan laud'  ing, with the intention of visiting  Vernon and spending a few hours  there on business and pleasure.  Before starting they apparently under-estimated the long journey in th*  small craft and informed many of theii  friends they would probably rrurn  that night, but when news came to  hand late that evening that Jicy only  reached Vernon shortly before tuppei  lime, tired and hungry they decided t<  remain over and return the following  day. This they did, but got a late  start on Friday afternoon, telephoning however before leaving, so as not  to cause any undue anxiety to friends  and relatives, stating that they would  not arrive home until late.  On the following morning, when nu  thing had been heard from the craft  there is little wonder at the uneasi  ness on the part of their home folk.  This gave rise to much, inquiry and  resulted in someone, no doubt in  spirit of fun expressing the opinion  that tho small craft had been torpedoed or struck a floating mine and  hud gone down, with all on board.  This led later to a rumor being circulated that the men had been drowned  and created an immense amount of excitement among the people of the city  and nervousness among the relatives  of the men, who it appears ran into  some rough weather near Wilson's  landing where they tied up for the  night and reached Kelowna on Saturday shortly before noon to relieve  tho Severe strain upon their wives and  friends.  The boys reported having a splendid  time and pleaded not guilty to any  knowledge of the anxiety they had  caused and further were loud in their  condemnation of persons, who not know  ing any facts, had started rumors of  this kind to cause suoh anxiety among  their own people.

The May circular of the New York  City National Bank gives facts regard  ing the present situation in European  finance, particularly that of the bel  ligcrents. It says the war loans to  date stand as follows: Great Britain  S2,.K25,000,000, France, 81,802,400,000;  Russia, $1,065,000,000; Germany, $3,  ���491,400,000,- and Austria Hungary,  S73O,O0O,0O0, a total of $0,013,400,000.  Twelve powerful airships, claimed to  be improvements over anything of the  air-fighting type ever floated have  been completed in England.

C. 25-29  r-Biscuit Business-*,  IT is getting increasingly hard to obtain  the English Biscuits that the people  wan'. With the increased demand in  Europe, the increased cost of production,  anJ the increased insurance caused by the  present conditions, the matter of getting a  complete stock is practically an impossibility. However, we have lately received  a small shipment of the well-known Huntley & Palmer lines, a few of which we  mention:  Coronation, Folkestone, Kindergarten,  Alexander, Alphabet, Osborne, Arrowroot, Abernethy and Wheatmeal, at 40c  per pound, and Popular Mixed and  Golden Snaps, at 25c per pound.  The Canadian manufacturers have quickly appreciated the condition of affairs and have come  forward with several lines to meet the scarcity  of English Biscuits. The leaders of the Biscuit  business in Canada who are Christie, Brown &  Co., have made four new lines which are particularly acceptable. They are Polo, Sugar Shortbread, Nice, and Sovereign Fruit, all of which  sell at 50c per pound. We also have ten or a  dozen of the regular lines at 25c per pound,  and every .biscuit that Christie makes is good.  The McKenzie Co., Ld.  Phone 214  " Quality and Service " our motto.
