KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, AUGUST 31, 1916.-4 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  Arrangements for Handling Product  nf Kelowna's Orchards Never Better  Cannery and Evaporators Start on Season's Pack  Labor is Serious Handicap  Lack of  Never   be ore  in lhe" history   of  th |  district has Kelowna been in auch  ex  ecllent    shape    Lo deal with the pro-1  ducts of her lields and orchard.)      as j  shy    is today.    Indeed, to put it*   in  another   way, one can truthfully   aa}''  that never iu uuy previous year    hasr  so much real industrial progress beon  made    as    during    the    past  t\\ elve  months.        Knockers   und   peasimiats  pleass take note!  iieal progress consists not m tho  feverish inilatiun oi real estate valuts.  nor in the booming of unnecessary  subdivisions, but in the budding up of  solid staple industries, arising naturally out of the ordinary activities ot  the people of the district. Mich in  dustries provide not only a market  for the produce of the farmer and (the  fruit-grower, but also labor and a  pay-roll to keep the city going.  Kelowna has always from the first  taken a decided lead in the Valley for  the number and excellence ot fruit-  shipping concerns, and these have  grown with each succeding year to  keep pace with the great increase of  produetion. It does not seem long,  however, sines at every meeting of  farmers held for any purpose whatever, someone would regret the absence of a means of taking care of the  surplus products which were allowe  to go to waste in large quantities  every year. These hopes havo been  realized sooner, perhaps, than was expected, and today Kelowna, possesses,  in addition to one of the largest" ami  best equipped canneries in the west,  two modern evaporating plants, which  are capable of dealing with almost  unlimited quantities of imperial.  INCREASED EVAPORATOR  CM'AOITY  ihe Orchard City IS vapors tor, of  which .Mr. W. Ii. Al. Culder is the  manager, has during tlie past lew  months enlarged its buikung by one  third, and this week is completing the  installation of additional machinery  which will increase its capacity to  some ten tons a day. This Uriu denial present exclusively with apples,  producing those dried apple i ings for  which there is an insatiable deiuuuit  in eastern cities. The excellence of  the product is shown by lhe tact that  the output of last year, the lirst year  oi operation was all sold out uvea before the packing of the goods was  completed. The only diiticulty experienced was that of procuring a  sufficient quantity oi fruit to koep the  plant profitably employed. As will be  seen by an advertisement in another  column the manager is appealing to  ail apple growers to gather up all the  culls and windfalls, whioh ihougn unlit, for shipment in the ordinary way  are just us good as the best :iiM for  drying purposes.  TURN WASTE FRUIT INTO HONK*  In a conversation a i.;w days nyo  thu manager contends that as y*it lew  growers have come 1.0 realize that  with the expenditure of cry litt!  labor in gathering up fallen and < ti'-  ed fruit, what would otAttViHt be  dsad loss oan be made to | rodueo  good returns.  "The majority of growers,' i.e Bays  "will persist in comparing the prices  they obtain for this wasta material,  with the returns they get from perfect  shipping fruit, whioh is a wrong way  of looking at it. Take the farmer  who grows potatoes. He goes to all  the trouble and expense of plowing  his land, buying seed, planting, cultivating, and harvesting, and iftor nil  his trouble he gets little more per ton  for his product than the man who  goes around his orchard and bother*  up his windfalls without any other  trouble to himself, except hauling them  into town. It is literally all found  money." And not only does he benefit himself, it might be added, but he  provides employment for others in the  district.  ONIONS ARE IN TITE ATR  Within the pnst fow dnys the odor  of the all-prevading onion has begun  to make itself felt In the land.     This  Arrange Union of  Local Churches  ouudciy Services Will Be Held  in KresDytenan Church  is undeniable evidence that the now  evupotuting plant of the li. C. Evaporators, Ltd., has commenced operations. The fine brink building which  has just been completed, now shelters  a busy company of women and children who, unmindful of tie peneunting  aroma, aro peeling off the outer jackets of mountains of onions which arc  sliced and dried to a mere shadow ol  their former selves. The plant has j  been equipped on un extensive scale  and the long row of steam-heated drying cabinets are capable of handling  a largo output not only oi onions but I  of carrots and other vegetables.  Like many other local industries,  however, the management is faced witn  the serious problem of shortage al  labor, and it soemB inevitable that unless moro peelers can be obtained  locally, Chinese labor will have to b-  imported from the coast. This is  regrettable, not only becauso of thu  introduction of undesirable aliens, but  also because the money which will be  paid out in considerable quantit.es  will be withdrawn from the district.  It is a matter worthy of seiious consideration whether something could  not be done to avoid such a contingency. There must be scores of women  and girls in the district who could at  the cost of a little inconvenience���and  possibly false pride���join in and earn  souie of the money which is thus going begging.  SHORTAGE Ur1 TOMATOES  HAMPERS CANNERY  Siuce tho local syndicate who slopped in and took over the cannery from  the old couipany, huve had eniiie control of the building and plant, a large  amount of money has been spent in  bringing the plant up-to-date, and  thousand dollars worth of new mafia*  iuei'y has been installed during tne  past month or two, and the result is  a degree of speed and efficiency hitherto unattainable.  The idea has been, so fur as possible, to eliminate all cumbersome  methods of handling, both of ihe  empty cans, and also the product  itself trom thc ripe tomatoes as they  aro loaded on to the platform und on  through the various processes of cooking aud lilling, to Lhe point where  they are packed into cases lor shipment.  'Automatic carriers receive the empty  cans at the very doors of the cars in  which they have been transported from  thu factories, and they are not agaiu  touched by the hands until they drop,  still automatically, all complete except  the label, on to the table of the  packer.  The principal improvement is in the  arrangement for "cooking" the filled  cans. Previously these were paoked  by hand into large iron baskets, lifted  by block and chains and lowered into  tanks of boiling water. From these  they had to be raised again, aud lowered into u large tank of ooldwater 10  cool them off for packing. AH this  was slow and cumbersome, compared  with the new method which permits  the cans to travel on an endless baud  through steam heated cooking uiehinos  then through a oooler and on without  a pause to the packing table.  At present the cannery is operating  somewhat spasmodically, a few hours  each day only. This is due to a  shortage of ripe tomatoes, the unusual coolness of tho season having  hold baok the orop so far beyond tho  ripening period of former soasons.  Tho hot weather, however, has apparently arrived at Inst, and in all probability the fruit will lie coming in  with a groat rush beforo many days  aro over.  There is another cause, however,  whioh the management allege is contributing to the shortage, and that i*  that a number of growers, tempted by  tho higher prices to l)e obtained, are  violating thoir contracts by shipping  out semi-ripe tomatoes. Naturally  tho company is apprehensive thnt if  tins is allowed to continue, thero w"r)l  be very few tomatoes to can, and  somo curiosity has been expressed as  to what action the Canning Company  The result of the voting un lhe  question of whether some lorui 01  union should be adopted between the  I'resoyterian und Methodist enurciies  having placed beyond all doubt that  all except a very small minority a*r��  decidedly in favor of such an arrange  ment, representatives of both cnuxohds  huve been busy during the pust wee.t  wording out the details, und maiiing  plans for future guidance.  A union committee consisting ol  Messrs. A. 0. Todd, li. A., Copeland,  ..). N. Thompson, W. R. Trench, .).  Gordon, D. \V. Sutherland, and John  Hill from the Presbyterians aud Messrs  ���I.

' All Sunday services in the  future are to be held iu the Presbyterian church, the Methodist church  ueing reserved for mid-week services,  prayer meetings, and young peoples'  meetings.

All messages of fifty words  or less will, if the sender so desires,  be treated as a deforred message and  sont at one and a half tlie regular  day rate for ten words. By deferred  message is meant that such message  will be transmitted and delivered subject to the priority of fully paid duy  messages. For messages of more than  fifty words an additional charge of  one-fifth the day rate will be charged  for each additional ten words.

Holidays Are Ended  Schools Re-Open  New School Staff Lined  Up  For Work oi Coming Term  If souie ueriul scout hud been hovering over Kolowna lust Monday morning he would have noticed a tremendous bustle going on, more especially  in those homes where there are children of school age. Such a polishing  of boots, shining of faces, and a tying  of hair ribbons as has not happened  tor���how many montliB is it since the  school closed? Presently he would  have seen converging in lines of  bright colors towards tho school  house tiny creeping iigures, which  vanished through the big doorways as  the nine o'clock bell rang.  It was the reopening of school after  the long holiday, and books and pt.n  oils and scribblers are oncu more ia  demand.  There were ��1U4 pupils all told on  the register for this term, und thiB includes 35 beginners who have ju-^t  entered the roceiving class.  There has been an almost complete  rearrangement of teachers since the  close of the last term, and perhaps  many parents will be interested to  know the teachers' names and classes  as thoy stand now.

SKPTEMBEIi Ith WILL JJE I'Ol.l.lM  DAY AT VERNON *CAMP  The voting of the soldiers at' the  Vernon training oamp will take place  on September 4th.  ill \V. Horry, presiding officer, has  mads all necessary arrangements f 1 >r  the poll. A considerable number of  tho men have left on harvest leave  during tho past week or two, but it  is expected that many of these will be  back before the date of the election,  andtheir votes will be taken on their  return.  will tnke, if any. Meanwhile, this  shortage tends to increase dilliculti-B  of the already troublesome labor  problem, as slaffH are hard to keep  together when tho work is so irpcgular.  Ihere hus been u very noticeable  deurth of real wur news during tho  past few weeks, and only tho vaguest  rumors of events huve been published.  Monduy, however, a new aspect was  given to the war and parlLularily to  that section of it dealing with thc  Balkans, by the decision of Roumun'ia  to throw in her lot with the Allies.  and on Sunday, it appears, this was  definitely accomplished by a declaration of war against Austria. Germany at once reciprocated by declaring  war on Roumania. Turkey has also  since declared war on Roumania.  The entry of Roumania into the war  on the side of the Allies makes the  fourteenth nation now engaged in the  greatest struggle in the history ofthe  world.  In Roumania, it is estimated there  are 50U,U0U fighting men available.  Russia will now be able to strike ut  the Teutonic Powers through Roumania. Ai is known that thc Russians  havo been concentrating on the Roumanian frontier for months, and it is  believed they will quickly cross n>  and attempt a drive either through  Serbia or Bulgaria, and thus seek    to  cut oil all communications between  Turkey and the Central powers.  Already news is beginning to come  in regarding the activity of Roumania  which is said to havo captured pastes  ,in the Carpathians and made considerable progress into Hungary. \\  Roumania's reason for entering tho  war on the side of tha Entente powers  were set forth in the following official  statement from Bucharest:  ' 'The Roumanian population hus  been exposed to the risks of war and  invasion by Austrijans und Hungarians  "Roumania's intervention will shorten the war.  "Roumania decided to cast her lot  with the allies because they alone can  guarantee national unity."  Ituly hus also declared war on Germany. The two nations have been  drifting steadily toward war for weeks  and tho declaration became inevita 1;  when Italy recently sent troops to  Saloniki to co-operate in the campaign of the Entente Allies an the  Macedonian front, as Germany is  directing tho opposing forces and has  troops on this battle line.   .

NO PEACE OVERTURES  No peace overtures have been made  to Great Britain, declared Lord Robert  Cecil, minister of war trade, in the  TTotisc of Commons, a WW dliys ago.  Lord Robert's statement was made  in response to a question in regard lo  "pence rumors," and the situation In  the Balkans,  o-O'O-o-o-u-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o -0-0-0-0-0-0-0  AT THE OPERA HOUSE  0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0  OFFICER 666  The story of "Officer 666" the play  to be presented here on Tuesday, the  5th of September, presents one of thc  cleverest combination of comedy situations ever attempted in stage work.  A young millionaire, Globe Trotter,  returns to find his batchelor quarters  occupied by a burglar, who not satis-  lied with appropriating the million  aire's name and getting himself engaged to a pretty society girl on the  strength of it, is rapidly disposing of  a fine collection of paintings gathered  by the aforesaid millionaire from the  art centres of the world. This is the  situation when the curtain goes up on  tho big production. How it will be  worked out will be seen when the  Sherman production commences. The  situations brought about are exceedingly funny, and have already convulsed thousands with uncontrbl&ble  laughter.  POPULAR, WAR PLAY COMING  The present European war has provided material galore for the dramatic writers of tho day, aud such military plays as "The White Feather,'  "Under Fire," and "War Brides," and  many others of note huve enjoyed long  seusons of unprecedented success in  London abd New York playhouses,  but none of the above have claimed  the attention of the critics or evoked  their unstinted ppraise in the measure  that 'Somowhereun Franoe" the latest  military drama has.  Replete with thrilling moments and  realistically staged, this latest drama  tic military ollering gives promise of  eclipsing all of tho uforemeutioned  successes of the duy and the faot that  thc personnel of the company includes  many well known stuge favorites has  no doubt been u faotor in increasing  its popularity.  The story of the play deals hug11.  with the efforts of an unscrupulous  scapegoat, the son of well-to-do parents, who, in an oll'ort to cover his  misdeeds, decides to enlist in the  army. Here, through his official capacity, an opportunity presents itself by  which he is enabled to send his rival  iu love to almost certain death in a  charge on the battlefield, how the  latter miraculously escapes death and  his subsequent nursing baok to health  and happiness by his sweetheart, who  has volunteered- for* service in a base  hospital, is told in a manner which  holds the attention of the audience  from.rise to fall of the curtain.  The second act provides ample study  of modern trench wnrfaro, ns the  Bceno of battle shows tho Bection of  one of thoso underground homes.  "Somewhere in France" will appear  at tho Kolowna Opera House for   ono  Rutland News  (From oar own CorrcvooDcUat.l  Pte.

One of the  boys was thrown oil and rendered unconscious for a while. This should  be a lesson as lo the danger of rid'ng  on this path after dark, nnd should  also emphasize the necessity of carrying lights.  * *  There have been two deaths  in Rutlund during the pust week, and  much sorrow and sympathy has been  awakened in the district in consequence. Mention has already been  made of the death in the hospital of  Miss Edith Clever. The funeral took  place Thursday last, service being held  in the home, and a large number of  friends were" present, and the numerous  wreaths and sprays of flowers spoke  of thc extent to which the loss was  felt by many of those who knew h.r.  A   memorial service was held in    tho  Presbyterian church  Sunday  morning.  * *  *  The sudden death of Mrs. J, Slodd-  art about 5 o'clock on Sunday afternoon was a great Bhook not only to  the husband and family but also to  many friends and neighbors. Although  the deceased lady hud been ill for  somo time past and had been an inmate of tho Kelowna hospital onl ;  recently, it was thought thut she was  very much improved in health, nnd  the sudden relapse came aB a gr, at  surprise. The funeral took place on  Monday afternoon, a perliminary service being hold in the home, at whioh  Archdeacon Greene officiated. Stiffly  people sent dotal tributes, and tho  attendance at the* funeral was lari.��.  Much sympathy is expressed for Mr.  Stoddart and daughter in their sad  bereavement.  ,   o   Last Saturday night waB witnessed  a singularily beautiful display of that  strange phenomenon, the "Northern  Lights."

SHOOTING SEASON OPENS  T0-M0BK0W  As the shouting aeusou opens lo-  nurruv. ii. this district it rni_ht bo us  well' to remind would-be Jsiuirodfl ot  some oi thu more important regulations whieh were made public during  the month regarding the killing aud  Helling oi game.  In the tirst place it should be noted  that the season which opens to-moi  row- is for deer, duck and geer>e only-  Oi the former, the varioty common  here is the ilulo deer, and of these  only three bucks can be shot by one  person during the season. Does aro  protected and must not be killed un-  dor any consideration. Tho killing of  lihite Tail door of either sex is also  prohibited, but as these have grown  very scarce around this country o,  late years it is not likely that many  will transgress in this respiot. The  protection of the does is said to have  been regarded as necessary owing to  the bad winter und the depredations  ol hungry coyotes. The season for  deer, ducks and geeco extendi to Uiv.  lath.  Grouse Bhooting does not open until  Sept. loth, and closes again on Nov.  30th. Prairie Chicken may be shot  lor one month only, from Sept. lutm  to Oct. 15th.  So pheasants, quail, mountain  sheep, calves, colts, or khaki-clad  hunters may be shot in this district.  A drastic provision which is expected to meet with the warm approval  of sportsmen, is that no deer or ducks  may be exposed for aule this year.  The only ways in which it will be  possible to got venison or ducks Will  be to take a gun und go hunting, 01  to chum up to some successful Mm  roil who shoots more than he n ed  for himself und is willing to give the  rest away. Sportsmen all over tlu  province halve been oomplainmg of the  havoc caused by market hunters. In  certain of the northern districts where  food is scarce a restricted sale o.  moose and cariboo meat will be  allowed.  luu will remember that last week  we published an order irom i'rovinoial  Headquarters with regard to the weur-  iug of uniforms, etc., und thut m order to see whether our othcers weie  taking un interest in the troop and  reading this column, wo usked each  ono ol thorn to immediately report lo  our head-quarters upon reading the  column. We have 7 patrol loaders, 1  acting patrol leader, 0 seconds and 1  aoting second, u troop leader uud u  troop secretary. Up to the time of  writing only six of these ollicors have  reported and we are therefore regretfully forced to conclude thut the remaining otlicers tako so little interest  iu the troop thut they cannot Und  time or take the trouble to read this  column, which we use us u medium of  I'oiiimunieutiou to the troop. Unless  I here is moro interest shown in the  troo_ by our otlicers we huve about  us much chance of winning the Lieut  euunt-Goveinor's Shield as tho Kaiser  hus of marching overland to London,  'those who did report as requested, in  the order named, were the Jxangaroo  .Second; tho Wood Pigeon Second; the  troop Leader; tho Wood i'igeon 1'atrol  l.euder; the Uurlow 1'atrol Leader, and  the Wolf Second.  With a membership of between forty  and lifty scouts, it is sometimes impossible for us to communicate with  each individual member when we wish  to publish an ordor. Before the next  column is published, we wish to hear  trom every othcer who has not yet  reported, his reason ior not doing so,  and would ask every scout who has an  interest in his own patrol to bring  this column to the attention of his  1'atrol Leader and Second.

He is working south, and it  is expected that he will be m Kelowna  in a few days. .  In this connection it might be as  well to mention that last Friday, the  scale of fees passed by the agricultural  mil its commission to be, levied on th  loans made to farmers under the terms  of the Agricultural Credits Act, and  formally approved by the Lieutenant-  Governor in council, were gazetted as  follow*.

A freak in the form of a human  sponge drifted to our beach one  day, and though the campers were  not gteatly excited, still they gave  it a wide berth and it was left  verely alone. Now although water  is very necessary for its mainten  ance, a mixed diet is to be preferred, and as only water was available it quietly drifted away again  sometime before the gale Thursday. When last seen it was going  south.  The breezes from Manhatten  freshened considerably last weekend and on Thursday blew a per-  ect gale. Lone Pine Coltage was  completely dismantled and the  family taken to town by auto. Fred  D. worked heroically, nevertheless  his tent frame was entirely demolished and the remnants were sent,  together with the contents of his  camp from the beach in great disorder.    The occupants followed.  Mr. C, who is the corner man at  he south, plays his part well, giv-  .ng fancy baritone selections in his  old southern style at the camp fire.

Then suddenly a squall did squeal'  And something squeaked a  squawk ;  Some said it was his " Rosary,"  But it was a fresh fish hawk.  Then Grandpa pulled  his  plunging punt  And headed for the dock.  Oh, that was a fierce and furious  fight  With the seething, swirling sea;  But Grandpa  rowed  with all his  might,  " Shall 1 e'er get back," groaned  he;  And soon he slid from the slippery  seal,  Bul still rowed vigorously.  The people paced upon the point,  And when he swept the sand,  They  pulled   his  boat  upon  the  shore  And shook his shaking hand  And said : " Don't fish on Sundays  mole  But shout for Daniel's band."  Shamrock Shack is deserted  The supposed and accused Spy,  together with his family and their  belongings being swept off the  beach by the terrific gale. The  poor Spy was blown clean through  the roof, and rumor has it that he  is wearing his nose in splints.  F. R. E. and the Amateur Camper  also decided things were much loo  chillv and boisterous for ihem, so  pulled up stakes and left for their  homes in great haste. When at  last the storm had blown over it  was found that only a few of the  old, seasoned campers remained.  We were sorry to see them go but  life is still endurable at Manhatten.  The following touching stanza was  picked up by a souvenir hunter:  The Spy on the roof  Was cutting a caper,  He thought it was boards ���  But 'twas only tar paper;  He fell with a crash  And near broke his nose,  Which gave him swelled head-  Not needed, dear nose I  Bonevolent old fjeneleman:���"Are you  in pain, my little man?"

Residence at  GLENMORE  Vote for  Mayor Jones  Briefly, there are two main reasons why you should cast  your ballot in favor of Mayor Jones at the election  September 14th:���  1 Became he hat proved himself to be a  suitable repreientative by- the record of hit  work and achievement* in the public service  during the past five years.  2 Because his intimate knowledge and acquaintance with local conditions will be of  value to the electorate in the future.  As Mayor of the City of Kelowna Mr. Jones has put  in many years of faithful and energetic service, and only  those intimate with city affairs know what a great expenditure of time and perpetual self-sacrifice the position  involves.  Through his energetic championship of local movements, Mayor Jones has been instrumental in securing  many benefits which the town and district now enjoy.  A complete list of these would be a long one, but it is  only necessary to mention a few things in which Mayor  Jones has been either directly responsible or has assisted  largely in their consummation.  More than anyone else Mayor Jones may claim the  credit for having induced the government to make the  liberal grant of over $61,000 for the large brick schools  which place Kelowna in the front rank of interior cities  for educational facilities; and not only the city but  several of the country districts have to thank Mayor Jones  for his efforts in' securing aid. Only recently he had been  able to negotiate a grant for the erection of a good school  at South Okanagan to take the place of the present inadequate structure. He was largely concerned in the  organization and obtaining of government assistance for  the Growers' Exchange, and has, moreover, himself invested money in this local institution, as also in other  non-dividend paying concerns established for the public  benefit. .  The billeting of the soldiers here during the winter,  aid ths provision of suitable quarters, cost Mayor Jones  a vast amount of labor about which the public knows little  This spring a serious situation developed in connection with the irrigation system on the K. L. O. bench,  one of the most productive orchard areas in the district.  Timely government assistance for the obtaining of which  Mayor Jones was almost solely instrumental, saved the  situation for the ranchers.  All sensible men know that under any government  these things can not be secured without being energetically gone after by someone with a thorough knowledge  of conditions.  The unselfish public spirit of Mayor Jones has been  shown in the fact that there have been few local movements whether for social and moral improvement or for  recreation and sport but have found in him an enthusiastic supporter. As a further guarantee of his undivided efforts for the welfare of the district it might be  mentioned that practically the whole of his financial  investments are dependent upon its progress and  advancement.  This intimate contact with the municipal, agricultural and social life of the community have afforded him  a unique and valuable knowledge of local needs and  problems���a knowledge absolutely essential in an up-  country legislative representative. For instance, his  knowledge of irrigation matters has frequently been  commented upon, and for very good reason. When this  matter, upon which the whole future of the district rests,  comes to be discussed in Victoria, as it will in the near  future, South Okanagan needs a spokesman there who  can ADVISE the government from personal knowledge  and see that amidst the conflicting claims of other localities, this district gets its full share.

Ball and family returned  Saturday last from a stay in Cal  gary.  C.P.R. agent H. W. Swerdfager  returned Sunday from his holiday  at the coast. Mrs. Swerdfager and  family are staying another week.  Mr. A. R. Lord, formerly principal of the Kelowna public school,  but now an inspector under lhe  Department of Education, waa in  Kelowna last week-end for a few  days.  Mrs. E. Swalwell, who has been  visiting her mother, Mrs. LeFevre,  for the past few weeks, returned  to Calgary today. She was accompanied as far as Vernon by Mrs.  C. F. Armstrong.  The regular monthly meeting of  the Women's Institute will bo held  Saturday in the Board of Trade  rooms, at 3 p.m., when Mrs. Frank  Small will demonstrate the use of  paper patterns.  Mis�� Buchanan, who has taken  over the business of Mrs. Ratten-  bury, is now open for business,  having completed the purchase of  her new stock of Fall Millinery.  Miss Buchanan is arranging to hold  her Fall Millinery Opening on Friday and Saturday, September 8th  and 9th.  Lance-Corp. Alwyn Weddell  paid a few days' visit to his home  last week-end. He is in the Sea-  forth Highlanders at the coast and  looked well in kilts. He was recalled by wire Tuesday morning,  his regiment having to leave at  once for Vancouver Island.  Mr. Claude James, formerly of  Kelowna, but lately municipal electrician at Summerland, was in town  last Friday. He has resigned his  appointment at Summerland in  order to enlist in the motor patrol  service, and sails for England in a  short time. The British Admiralty  has now a great fleet of hundreds  of fast motor launches, which have  proved to be the best weapon  against the depredations of submarines.  Kelowna Volunteer Reserve  At the last regular Monday even  ing drill of the Kelowna Volunteer  Reserve, Serg. Chaplin, the instructor1, was much pleased by the improved attendance, fully 25 per  cent, better than the previous drill.  The sergeant is also greatly encouraged by the improvement in  recruiting for over-seas, which he  partly ascribes to the expectancy  of compulsory service among the  people of the district.  In connection with this the executive of the K.V.R. point out the  advantages of their organization as  a preparatory school for intending  recruits, who are now joining the  colours voluntarily, or intend to  join later at a more convenient  time.  Miss Gaddes returned Sunday  morning from a visit to friends at  Summerland.  Mr. Ralph Smith came in on the  boat this morning, and will address  a Liberal meeting in the Opera  House to-night.  Rate payers (or would it be more  correct to say rate owers?) are reminded that only another week  remains in which arrears of taxes  can be paid so as to avoid the  addition of the costs and expenses  of the tax sale.  The wind of last Sunday afternoon made things pretty busy for  a while for those responsible for  the various telephone and telegraph  lines in the neighbourhood. On  the Vernon road in two places  trees blew down smashing wires  and fences, and blocking the roadway for a considerable time. In  the park a pole carrying several  lines was blown down and seryice  was temporarily suspended.  Three boys were up before the  magistrate this week on a charge  of breaking into a shack on Ethel  Street and stealing therefrom several rifles and a hunting knife. It is  probable that the approach of the  hunting season had tempted the  boys to borrow the rifles, which  belong to a man who enlisted  some time ago. Two of the boys  were let out on suspended sentence and the third was remanded  in order to give him a chance to  produce one of the rifles which  was still missing.  A nasty automobile accident occurred last Sunday morning on the  Vernon road near Mr. Campbell  Brown's place at Oyama, where  there is a sharp curve in the road.  wo cars coming in opposite directions at a good speed collided,  head on. One was a new Dodge  car, containing Mr. F. Raeburn,  with wife and children, of Oyama,  while the driver of the other was  Mr. J. H. Smith, of P. Burns & Co.  Mrs. Raeburn and one of the children were slightly hurt, but both  cars were badly damnged and had  to be towed back to the garage.
