 I *0-"-  NO. 28  | City Council Meeting  The council met Monday even-  ���g in regular session with a full  ���.ttendance of aldermen. There  ���mm an unusually small amount of  lusincss on the agenda.  The queation of the grant to the  ���Canadian Patriotic Fund waa  ���brought ud by a letter from Mr.  Beale who pointed out that, al  bough public collection of sub  jcriptiona had ceased, the govern,  ment having taken over the affairs  of the fund, it waa atill necessary  to provide for the distribution of  cheques to thoae entitled to them,  for which reason he aaked the  council to continue their donation.  It was decided to make a grant of  $20 per month for the months of  April and May to meet thia expense.  A lengthy discussion took place  as to the propriety of the council  presenting an address of welcome  and recognition to Kelowna aoldiera who had returned from overseas, in accordance with a proposal made aome weeks ago, the  aubject being raised by Aid. Knowlea who handed to the council a  desigd for a card prepared by  Miss Peggy Harvey.  Some of the membera were of  opinion that the recipients would  probably appreciate auch an addreaa more if it came from say the  G.W.V.A. or aome other organization more closely connected with  military affairs than the citv council. Finally it was decided to hand  over the proposal to the Kelowna  War Memorial Committee for  & their consideration.  Aid. Mantle aaid he would like  to get the consent of the council  to the Public Works committee  making the necessary repaira to  the approach to the hospital and  laying a cinder walk between Pendozi street and the Hospital building. He pointed out that the Hospital had no machinery for doing  thia work, and* that the preaent  condition of the road waa a dig.  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA. THURSDAY.

The council expressed ita willing  ness to sanction thewotk required.  Owing to increaae of work in  connection with assessing and tax  collecting entailed by amendments  to the Municipal Act, it was arranged that the stenographer be engaged full time instead, of half  time aa heretofore,  A request from the Salvation  Army for a lease of the building  on Pendozi st,, N��� behind the police offices, for uae as a hall, was  declined, as the city is at present  using it as a workshop and storeroom.  Mayor Sutherland, with Aid.  Rattenbury, Mantle, Duggan, and  Knowlea, were appointed to act as  members of a Court of Revision to  be held Monday next June 2nd at  10 a.m.  The Kelowna baseball team covered themselves with glory last  Saturday on their visit to the big  Summerland picnic, where they  had been invited to play two  separate teama. 1 he first was from  Penticton and sailed under the  colore of the K.V.R. To state that  they were defeated ia altogethet  too mild a term to use. They  were anihilated, a score of 17  being piled up against them without giving them a chance to gain  aingle run.  A Summerland team then took  up the gage of battle and though  they fared a little better in the  matter of scoring they finally retired with 5 to 1 againat them.  Besides the honor of winning  the two games away from home  ground the same day, the boya  brought back $25 in prizes and  three new base balls. They have  made great progress lately in their  quality of play, the reault of strenuous practice. Norman DeHart  excelled himself in the pitcher's  box, while Ferguson did equally  well behind the bat. Theae with  Patterson and Roth on the infield  make a strong aggregation and  they (have every reason for en-  :ouragement at their prospects for  the season.  To-day the Vernon team is visiting Kelowna in the firat league  game of the season and the match  will be played in the city "park at  3 o'clock.  The lacrosse** league also opens  its schedule with a game at 4.30,  when Vernon will meet the newly-  formed Kelowna team.  O r  Irrigation Dams Threatened to Break  Interesting Pupils' Recital  An interesting event took place Monday  evening atHhe Aquatic -Pavilion in the  form of a musical recital by tha pupila ot  Herga Ambler. As all those contributing  to the programme were young people ol  the diatrict, there waa a large audience  present, and all were agreeably surprised  at the high order of musical talent which  ia being developed by Mra. Ambler  amongst her numerous pupils.   The pro.  firsmme, which is given below, wss lol.  owed by a dance arranged by the War  Veterans, to whose funds the proceeds of  the affair ware given.

A  leak was also discovered in the old  dam, and for a time things looked  bad. A call was sent round for  help and after a good deal of  strenuous work over the week-end  the situation was reported to br  well in hand. The leak haa been  plugged so as to make the loss ol  water negligible, and the new dam  repaired, Fortunately the trouble  has arisen early enough in the  year, so that there is time for both  dams to fill up again before tht  dry season comes. The water is,  in fact, reported to be rising in  both cases.  The Fire Brigade has had a busy  week, though the damage'done by  all the four fires which have occur-  ed during the past week has not  been very large.  Laat Thureda) afternoon two  calls were sent in within an hour  of each other. The first was to  a blaze which had atarted in a pile  of sawn lumber near the power  house, very near to the one of the  previous week. The cause this  time haa not been determined, but  it was probably due to someone  carelessly throwjng aside a match  or cigarette or to a spark from the  chimney. The (ire got a pretty  strong hold of one pile and for a  time burnt like a furnace, defying  all efforts of the brigade and a line  of hose from the sawmill to put it  out. A force of men, however, got  busy tearing down the pile and in  thia way made it possible to extin  guiah it.  A little later a aecond call came  in from the South End Store on  Pendozi atreet. A bon-fire burning in the back yard had been  caught by the high wind which  sprung up suddenly, and waa  spreading in a dangerous manner  towards the store.  Soon   after   midnight   Saturday  startled citizens roused from slumber by the shriek of the syren,  looked from their bedroom windows to find the sky illuminated bv  a big blaze to the north of the city.  As this was near the cannery and  packing shed district some* alarm  waa felt, but it turned  out  to  be  nothing worse than  the old  Lum  Lock house again, which gave the  brigade a run about a month ago.  lt is generally believed that the  unsightly old shack was deliberately fired by someone anxious to get  rid of it, for it seemed to burst into  flame all at  once, and  in  every  comer of the building.   Although  the brigade was out promptly, the  place was beyond hope of saving  when they  got the  water  on.   lt  was decided therefore to let it burn  and to direct attention to keeping  the fire from spreading.   It was a  spectacular blaze while it lasted,  but in a very ahort time the place  was reduced to a  little  heap  of  ashes.  Thus passed away the last: landmark of a once well-known local  character���the big, fat, genial and  wise old Chinaman, Lum Lock.  Since his decease, and the departure of hia young widow the estate  haa got into difficulties over unpaid  taxes.  Yesterday evening directly after  six o'clock the fourth call of the  week was turned in. Thia time it  was a private houae on Paul street,  the residence of Mrs. Kirk, where  (rom some cause the lattice work  of the back porch had caught fire.  It was soon extinguished ar.d the  damage done trifling. A little mishap prevented the chemical engine  from reaching the fire on thia  occasion. Taking a sharp turn  round the corner from Water street  the truck skidded badly, tearing  off one of the rear tires.  Urges Farmers to  Co-operate More  The condition of Mission Creek  is again causing anxiety. With the  warmer weather the water is now  beginning to come down, and  though the high water mark can  not nearly have been reached yet,  the overflow is higher now than it  has been (or ten yeara past. The  main road north of the Mission  bridge is now almost impassable,  from two to three feet of water  flowing awiftly over it. Lands have  been flooded thia year which have  not been reached for many years  past.  Fred Gillard, whose farm liea  alongside the creek haa been obliged to get out altogether and seek  shelter with his brother Leon,  abandoning his crops to their fate.  Casorsos and McEacherns have  alao suffered considerably along  with others.  Should the water riae much higher feara are entertained for the  safety of the bridges, and should  these two go out communication  will be cut off from the benches.  The problem of Mission Creek  seems to defy all aolution and  each year matters are getting  worse. The mouth is now so badly silted up with sand and gravel  that fully two-thirds of the water  is not following the channel at all  but is escaping acroaa adjacent  lands'.   ���o���������  Lieut.

At a joint meeting of the United Fanners  and Farm Women wat Thuraday evening  two very interesting addresses were given.  Mr. H. Slater of the Growera* Exchange,  took aa hia subject "The Markoting of Farm  Produce," white Mr. Kerr spoke on "The  Legal Status of Women in B.C."  A Utile excitement waa stirred up one  day laat week when one of Byrne'  cowa got on her back in the flume. The  timely arrival of some neighbors prevented  any serioua consequences, and Mra. Byrna  ia very grateful to thoae who helped.  Mr. Manly Byrna took a motor trip to  Vernon on the 24th.  The Benvoulinites took advantage of the  holiday on the 24th to hold a picnic to the  home of Mr. A. Reid at South Okanagan.  Contrary to all expectations no rain came  mar the day, and everybody bad a good  time.  On Monday evening a meeting waa held  at Mr. Burtch's to discuss matters pertaining to the Carnival. It wee pecided that  Benvoulin would go in with Rutland and  serve tea in the Park June 14th. AU ladiea  in Benvoulin are aaked to help out with  the cooking and alao with the serving.

Holding, from Armstrong,  apent Thuraday {aat and Friday with hia  cousin, Mr. Clarence Burtch.  The Baptist congregation me  ogether laat Thursday when a  social hour was held in honour of  the retiring pastor, the Rev. W,  Arnold Bennett, and his wife.  The main feature of the evening  was the presentation to Mr. Bennett of an address of appreciation  of his services as pastor of the  church, and this was accompanied  bv a more material gilt in the form  of an eight-day clock, whilat the  ladies presented Mrs. Bennett with  an ornamental bread tray. ��  Both the recipients were manifestly agreeably surprised and  voiced their thanks to that effect.  Speaking on behalf of his wife and  himself Mr, Bennett said he was  happy to see such a large circle of  friends present. With some theie  seemed to be a misunderstanding  as to the nature of his mission, and  he always counted on meeting  such people, they were not native  to Ke|owna. He had come to this  city with one aim and object: to  preach the Gospel, with the Bible  as authority, not to pose as a social  eformer, nor to tickle the ears ot  his congregation. He believed  strongly in social service, but that  was not what he was ordained for.  His mission was to preach Christ,  and that involved telling people  truths which they did not want to  abide by ; hence he did not expect  to differ from his predecessors  by being popular. This was not  the first time he had said farewell  to a church but he could say that  never before had he had such loyal  friends as he had met in Kelowna.  On Sunday last Mr. Bennett  preached his farewell sermons, and  left for the coast Tuesday morning  where he will take the pastorate of  Emmanuel Church, South Vancouver.   o-  Mr. R. A. Copeland. formerly  a well-known resident of Kelowna,  and now president of the United  Farmers of B.C, has forwarded for  publication the following appeal  addressed to the farmers of the  district. Mr. Copeland was one of  the original organizers of the U. F.  B. C, and is today one of the most  enthusiastic workers to increase its  scope and influence.   He says:  Probably at no time in the history of  Canada waa there greater need for farmera  getting together and considering matters  of vital importance to tbemaelvea and  their country. One important matter for  ua in British Columbia ia whether aa  farmera we ahould run our own business  affaire or continue to aell our produce at  whatever pricea thoae who grow rich by  the handling thereof may choose to offer  us, and to buy our requirements with no  control whatever over the purchaae  pricea. Such a courae will inevitably doom  ua to failure no matter how efficient we  may be in the other operations of our  buaineaa.  The war ia over and the reconstruction  period ia upon ua. There are no indications that the forcer which have stood  between ua and our rights are any more  willing to yield ua our rights than they  have been for the laat fifteen yeara. 1 fear  that aa farmera we will wake up to the  full realization that we will have a large  firoportion of the war debt to assume. Aa  armere we are quite willing to pay our  juat share but ahould not have to pay any  more.  There are indications that advantage  will be taken of the confusion growing  out of the war to appeal to prejudices and  passions to blind the people to their own  interests. The farmera can only protect  their rights and intereata by mobilizing  their strength and co-operating. Thia can  only be done through organization. Our  only preaent hope ia in the development  and growth of our organization.  Get busy brother farmera and .fellow  laborers. Now ia the time to organize  Let ua cut out petty spite and aelfiahneai  and jjet together, ao that we may know  and truat one another more aa time goea  on. We want our wivea, our sons and our  daughtera behind thia organization ao that  the aocial aide of life will not be overlooked. Perhaps the greatest work that the  U.F. of B.C. has accomplished ia in merely bringing the farmera aa a claaa in closer  association with each other. If all the  farmera ii each diatrict in B.C., men and  women, could be induced to meet regularly once a week all winter and to talk  over their mutual problems, western agricultural and rural aocial conditions would  be revolutionized.  The field for a helpful activity of a local  U.F. of B.C. ia almost without limit. It ia  very much better that ideaa and suggestions ahould emanate from local meetinga  and be forwarded to the central than that  that a line of work ahould be fully mapped  out at the central and forwarded to the  locale. Aa much aa may be initiative in  the locals ahould be encouraged.  Will the returned soldier go on the  land? Will he continue aa a farmer } That  will depend partly on the soldier's inclination; partly.no doubt, on the government's  programme; but very largely theae queationa will be wrapped up in the biggest  queation���will farming pay > It ia the buaineaa of the organized farmera to aee that  conditions are changed ao that farming  will pay; to aee that the farmer geta a  profitable return lor hia efforta; to aee that  tbe coat of hia production ia brought aa  low aa poaaible. By auch meana we ahall  assist in making agriculture flourish ; we  ahall assist in providing for our returned  aoldiera; we shall perform a national duty.  Left Kelowna as Captain On  Outbreak of War  Amongst the returned soldiers  this week Kelowna had the pleasure Monday of welcoming back  Brigadier-General Harman. Capt.  Harman, as he then was, left his  ranch et Ellison immediately the  war broke out and has served with  distinction throughout the war  with the Imperial army winning  rapid promotion to his present  elevated rank. Mrs. Harman and  family returned some weeks ago.  Thursday last W. Pettigrew arrived, who after leaving Kelowna  had transferred to the Flying Corps.  He did not return alone either, for  whilst overseas he had taken to  himself a wife who shared his enthusiastic welcome. The same  boat also brought Lieut. A. ��. Seon  of the Flying Corps and Esley Wilson, of Rutland.  Corp. Dan Berard was also an  arrival during the week, and Pte.  John Riorda, of the Caaorao** ranch  Pte. and Mrs. Vidler, W. Shugg  and E. Batt were also welcomed  during the week.  Mr. and Mrs. B. McDonald left  this morning for a visit east.  Mrs. J. D. Williams, who has  been undergoing a serioua operation at the coast, returned yesterday  to Kelowna. She was accompanied  home by Mrs. W. D. Brent, who  has been staying for some time  paat in Vancouver and who intends  spending the summer here.  To join in carrying out theae objects  ihould be the work of every farmer in  western Canada. It will be the work of  the farmera* movements ; it will be the  work of the farmers' aaaociationa and ot  the farmera* companies. One of tbe great-  eat factors in the work of reconstruction in  tbe making of Canada a better place to  live in ia the farmera' movement. Ita im.  portance goea beyond the individual's interest, beyond the interest of the weat  alone. It ia l vhing of national importance. Every farmer will want to share in  the reconstruction work of the farmera*  movement, and to enable the movement  to take ita full part in ita national work for  the deserving returned soldier, we cannot  aay or do too much. Between the forces  who fought at the front for our freedom  and the farmera who furnished the food  may there be a bond of unbroken brotherhood. We will be glad to have them advise ua how we may be of uae to them. I  advocate the establishment ot a U.F. of  B.C. information bureau ao that our membera could regiater anything they had for  aale and buyera could learn what waa for  aale in the district.  Aa to farmers' co-operative atorea and  markets. 1 am strongly in favor of the  farmera owning and controlling their own  supply atore if run on a proper buaineaa  baaia, ao that our membera could get their  gooda at coat plus a amall margin to cover  running expenses.  The U.F. of B.C intend to link up with  the united farmera of the provinces to the  eaat of ua and affiliate with the Canadian  Council of Agriculture which haa proved  auch a tower of strength to our agricultural intereata.  t��J  Rutland News  r earn eotfeaDeafcaaV  A picked team trom Rutland and Ellison  football clubs motored to Lumby on Victoria Day.

They forgot about  the Fairies. The smoke of the  great factories hid them from the  children and the noise of making  money was so great thnt the Fairies  could not make themselves heard  What w as worst of all the grownups did not tell the children about  the Fairies. Although the poor  Fairies danced every night in the  lamplights and, when it rained, on  the wet pavements, the children  did not see them. It is a very queer  thing about Fairies that you cannot  see them unless you know they are  there.   You muat believe in them.  The Fairies tried to make the boys  and girls hear them by whistling  down the chimneys and by making  strange sounds on the great harp  of wires that waa strung over the  house tops. But the grown-ups  told the children that it was just  the wind and that they must go to  sleep.  One night when all the children  were asleep in the great city the  Fairies met in their Shadow Hall  under the bridge. The most beauti  ful of all the Fairies was there. Her  name was Sparkling Eyes. Where  ever you see eyes sparkling ahe is  there and you know she is there if  you believe in Fairies. You can  aee her onlv in the eyes of good  people.  All the Fairies called for Sparkling Eyes to apeak to them. This  is what she ssid: "I am a Fairy  juat like you, but if I stay here in  thia citv any longer 1 feel that I shall  die. No one knows me even when  I sparkle mv best, in their best  friends' eyes. They think I am  just Love or Health or Joy. Of  course I go only where there is  Love or Health or Joy, but it breaks  my heart to think that people do  not know me���real me. I must go  away. The smoke is making me  dim.

Troop First;   Self Lait  Edited by Pioneer.   May 27, 1919  ORDERS by command for week  ending June 6th, 1919.  DUTIES: Orderly Patrol (or  week, Otters; next (or duty, Owls,  PARADES; The combined troop  will parade at tbe club-room on Wednesday the 4th of June at 7.15 p.m.  An important Court of Honour is being  ."���lil this evening with one representative  from each pstrol. We have to decide  whether we shall take in any recruits before  camp, which will necessitate the formation  of a new patrol, as with the exception of  the Beavers every patrol is now over the  regulrr strength of seven. We have also  to appoint two leaders in the places of  P.Ls. Charles and Leonard Gaddes. The  responsibilities of a Patrol Leader are not  to be lightly undertaken nor frivolously or  carelessly carried out, for as the Leaders  are so shall the Troop be.  We are authorized to order that the  half salute only need be given when in  mufti, to either officers or scouts, the first  time when met in the day. In a small  town like Kelowna where we are all running into each other sometimes many times  in one day this order will be appreciared.  ���        ���  Ten scouts have yet  to  bring  in  their  returns from concert tickets.  The Scoutmaster, Troop Leader, Sacond  Marshall, and Scouts Rowcliffe and Butler  went to Summerland on Friday last to be  present at the entertainment given that  evening by the Summerland Troop and we  wish to congratulate them on the very  excellent entertainment given, which also  seemed to be very much appreciated by  every member ol the local audience. In  going down by the Okanagan we picked  up the Commissioner at Peachland, who  forthwith signalized this happy re-union  by entertaining us all to dinner. We all  had our camp appetites for the occasion  and as the courses began to come and go  in rapid succession we began to notice a  sort of worried expression gradually growing on the face of the Steward. Knowing  that we were disembarking at Summerland  he must have sent a special messenger up  to the Captain in the Pilot House appealing  for assistance, for O, Horrors! just ai we  had all drawn a long breath preparatory to  attacking the last course, the whistle sounded for Summerland. It is believed that  never before has the C.P.R. steamer made  that port with anything like the same speed,  and it was now that heart.rendingdecisions  had to be made as to whether it would be  the cold ice-cream or the hot coffee, for it  did not seem possible to get away with  them both together at the same time.  Next time we hope to start having dinner  at Westbank.  The program opened with our old friend  O, How I Hate to Get Up in the Morning,*'  sung by the troop, and this was followed  by some well executed pyramids, including  the five tier collapsible. In memory of  our late dinner we were all glad that thia  was one time where we were in the  audience. Troop Leader Alec Smith then  showed us another aide of hia versatility  by getting a solo out oi his system all by  himself and then two very fine exhibitions  of parallel bar work and tumbling were  given. In the tumbling Scout Roland Reid  dived over eight boys and followed thia by  a very difficult feat splendidly done. He  stood on his head on a chair, placed another  chair on top of the first one and stood on  his head on this. He repeated this until  funnily he stood on his head on five chairs  piled on top of each other. It is difficult  enough to stand on ones head on the floor,  and it is difficult enough to balance five  chairs on top of each other, but when it  comes to both of these feats together in  the way Scout Reid showed up, well, all  Random Remarks  Br the Chiel  'A sMal's amang yo takin' notes and feth, he'll  ptent them."���Burnt.  O wad some power the giftie gie ue  Tae see oorsels as ithers see us,  It wad free mony an error free us���  An' foolish notion.  In common with other departments of  society the political world is showing  signs of decided unrest. Some of the party war horses evidently are sniffing the  battle from afar, and we are presented  with a view of all the old familiar stage  settings and also a foretaste of the usual  stage thunder. On the banners which are  being hoisted may be traced, with scarcely any change, the aame devices and  mottos which have served to often that 1  fear they are worn out. The amazing  thing is that the old parliamentary hands  do not seem to realize that the party shibboleths which once served their purpose,  are no longer effective, and that politically  speaking anyway, old things have passed,  or are passing, rapidly away, and in the  same sense, all things either have or are  becoming pew. Aa in political, so in all  other circles, religious, social and industrial particularly, changes are taking place;  changes which will become permanent  and which will ultimate in a better and a  sweeter world, or our sacrifices of recent  years have been in vain.  In the name of good taste 1 beg most  respectfully to enter a protest against the  prevalent use of slang in our everyday  speech. I must say that such expressions  as "gee whiz!" "beat the band 1' "search  me I "etc., are bad enough, but when it  comes to calling our children "kiddies,"  well, to say the least of it, that expression  gets my goat I���there, I have gone and  done it I know! Thia goes to show how  evil communications corrupt good manners. Seriously, however, 1 do think  reformation of our ordinary work-a-day  apeech is called for.  1 am sorry to appear in so critical a  role thia week but I have heard complaints  with the arrangement of our occasional  holidays. Take the last one, the 24th, for  instance. Stores open Thursday afternoon  then late on Friday night, the question  naturally and therefore properly arises:  where doea the holiday come in > 1  humbly pass on the question to the Merchants' Association for their earnest and  early consideiation.  The boys of the old (fire) brigade had  quite a busy day last week. Two fire calls  in quick succession, and, just as exciting  and certainly more interesting, a soldier  reception turn out. A pretty good record  for one afternoon I call it.  In this connection I would like to put  on record the admiration which I share  with the Kelowna public generally, at the  remarkable smartness of the brigade at  all times in turning out.  NURSE M.

A policeman heard the noise  of their clapping and looked over  the bridge and all the Fairies had  to keep veiy still for they did not  want went him to think they were  talking about going away. Th  policeman did not see or hear anyone and he went on his beat.  After he had gone some of the  other Fairies spoke. Rustling  Leaves, Dancing Water, Whistling  Wind, Fros'y Light all said they  would go toe. Only Creaky Door  and Curly Smoke said they would  stay. But they promised that if the  other Fairies went away they would  visit them once in a while.    And  you know they do.  But the poor Fairies did not  know where to go, so they thought  their best plan waa to viait the  Queen of the Fairiea who lives in  the sky and knows all the world.  Ordinary people call her the Moon.  To get to her the Fairies had to  climb up the Milky Way, stepping  gently on the stars. That is why  the Fairies danced down the great  river till they came to where the  Milky vVay touchea the earth.  Then they climbed and climbed  till they met the Moon.- Aa she  was Bailing past they told hei their  troubles.  The beautiful Moon told them  thrt slie had aeen them in their  Shadow Hall, for ahe had looked  up at them from the river. Shi  had heard what they said too. "1  have spoken across the sky to the  Great King'about you, my children  He was very sad about you, but he  said he could not let you die, and  that he would take you to a land  where he shines his brightest. You  are to go to the hill where the  King ol the Fairiea rises and as  soon as he comes you are to jump  into his chariot of gold and he will  take you a long journey ovei the  Great Ocean to the mountains  where he goes to rest at night."  The Fairies all crept down on  the sleeping stars to the hill where  they huddled together waiting for  the sun. They had a great ride in  that lovely chariot. But they did  not know how they could ever set  down to the earth again and they  were getting tired and sleepy. So  the sun made lhe wind whistle for  the clouds and when they came  rolling up the lovely lake he made  a rainbow. The end of the rainbow  rested on Black Mountain and the  Fairiea scrambled out of the chariot  and just sat on that rainbow and  tobogganed down on their folded  wings, for they were too tired to  fly.  Now the  Fairies are happy a  the time for they have come to a  beautiful valley where the children  believe in fairiea. ���J.
