Thit wat the first year in whieh  improvements have been assessed  outside the city.  The city clerk drew attention to  the fact that in order to bring the  city'a records of property titles in  the city up to date in accordance  with a recent amendment to the  Municipal Act, it would be necessary tor the attestor and city solicitor to go to Kamloops and make  searches at the office of the registrar.  Some cost would be entailed, but  there wat no avoiding it. The city  solicitor had pointed out that once  the records were up to date it  would be easy to keep them to, at  the registrar had undertaken to  furnish particulars of changea in  titles at the rate of seven centt  each.  The Occidental Fruit Co. tought  for permission to put in a four inch  water connection to the city main  in order to provide additional fire  protection for their buildings. The  council agreed to thit provided the  work wat done to the satisfaction  ot the committee.  The Kelowna Water Users gave  notice of a meeting of incorporation to be held on the 22nd intt.  Aid. Mantle stated that a deputation from the Water Users had  asked for permission to lay two  cement pipe culverts across Bernard avenue to replace two dilapidated irrigation flumes. Thit work  wai authorized.  Tenders for the supply and hauling of 300 cubic yarda of gravel  for the extension of the Park driveway were received as follows:  Max Jenkins Co. $1 per yard; Dillon & Son, $1.50, and A. Johnson,  $1.50. The contract wat awarded  to the'firtt-named.  Aid. Mantle taid ha had been  "approached in reference to the  opening up of Haynea avenue.

Duggan asked if it were not  advitable to provide for tone additional work which waa needed  on other streets, but it was decided  to refer tuch matter! until after the  Court of Reviaion, When tha rate  of taxation could be definitelj  fixed.  Some discussion took place over  the street sprinkler. Aid Meikle  wishing to know why it hsd not  been working during the past few  dayt when the wind had blown  up the dust to badly.  Aid. Mantle said that the sprinklers had been undergoing repairs.  After working up tha street watering by-law it was decided in future  to put the sprinkler to work in  April if necessary instead of waiting for May at heretofore.  Aid. Mantle ttated that the Hotpital Society had atked him to  draw the attention of the meeting  to the Hotpital Drive for $5000  which wai taking place- thii week,  and to request the council'! motal  lupport $2000 of thii turn, he  laid wai to provide a nurses' home,  the necessity for which wat very  urgent, at the hotpital board found  it difficult to retain the service! of  nurses, owing to the fact that their  quarters were below those of the  patients and they were consequently nearly always under restraint to  avoid disturbing the patient!.  The   council   agreed   that   the  Rutland News  Mill Lucy Craig left on Monday  lor Kamloopt to viiit her sister,  Mrt. Blenkarn.  Min Edie Gay returned home  on Tuesday from the coast where  she has been visiting her friend in  Vancouver and Victoria.  The Girls' Enterprise Club have  preiented to the tchool a complete  basket-ball outfit. Their next meeting  will. be at  Mn. Clever't on  Tuesday, May 6th.  The Ladiet' Aid of the Methodist Church have arranged something of a novelty for Friday May  9th in the shape of a "Conundrum  Social." There ia to be a good  programme.,  The Young People'a Society met  last Friday evening, the topic being  the "Life and Work of Sir Walter  Scott." The Rev. W. Connal gave  a brief talk on the aims and objects  of the Society.  The Women't Inttitute will meet  in the school on Thuriday May 6th  at 3 p.m. There will not be any  entertainment by the Mothert thit  month, but Min Dalzell will give a  talk on Nuning, and Mra. Stonehouse will give some hintt on the  culture of strawberries.  A football match waa played  latt Monday evening, the Rutland  team meeting a team picked from  the employee! of the Kelowna  Irrigation Co., now at* work on  ditch and flume repairi. The Rut-  landers were again victorious, 2-0.  On Saturday next (at 6 p.m. sum  mer time) the Ellison boy: will  again try conclusions with the  Rutlandert. This time they are  bringing a heavier bunch, and it is  going to be some game.  Nine new pupils were received  into the school thit .week. They  came mostly from the prairie provinces. We often experience difficulty in grading pupils from the  prairie, and we must ask the forbearance of parents in any changes  we may make that seem to them  unjust. It is usually hopeless to  puth new children up to the grade  suitable for children who have  come up under one system here,  For the guidance of parents let me  give the table showing the grades  and the average agei: -  Average  Age  6 to 6 J  6Jto7  7 to 7}  7Jto8  8 to 9  9 toll  II to 13  6 to 13  inclusive  Averg. time  Claaa      Grade   in claaa  Receiving      Junior     Half-year  First Primer      ��� ���  Second Primer   ,, M  First Reader  Second Reader   ��� 1 year  Third   ���   Intermediate 2 yeara  Fourth ,, Senior      2 yeara  ���  All classes tt grades     7 yeara  a      a  We want two old cart wheels  for a "giants' strides" apparatus in  the playground. The wheels need  hot be the same size or kind. Tha  School Board hai promised to fix  them up if we can get them.  Now that the spring-cleaning  time ii on, or perhaps over, we  want to get those books that you  have out-grown for the school  library. We got forty volume! in  this way last year and we require  more thii year. The books are all  carefully disinfected before being  placed in the library. We require  books for pupili and teachers.  Kamloops-Kelowna  Line Contract Let  Announcem'ent has been  made from the head offices  of the Canadian National  Railways, that the contracts  for the construction of the  line into Kelowna from Kamloops has been awarded to  General J. W. Stewart, the  well-known western railroad  builder. It is understood that  the work ii to be commenced  at once.'  Campaign Against the  Crows to Be Started  Plana to Be Laid at Public  Meeting Tuesday  The damage being done by  crows to the young pheaaanli hai  inspired some local sportsmen to  organize a campaign of destruction  against these predatory birds. Permission lias been sought and obtained from the superintendent of  provincial police McMynn for a  day of alaughter, the date for which  hai been fixed for next Thurday.  In order to proceed in a ayitematic  way and to map out the diatrict  into divitions to which all taking  part will be assigned, a public  meeting of thoae interested is to  take place on Tuesday in the Court  af 8 p.m.   0__:   Season Closes Here  For Basketball  After a very successful season  the baaketball teams game to a  rather ignominious finish on Friday  laat, when they visited Penticton.  Nevertheless loti of enjoyment  wss got from the trip, especially  at tha sumptuous repatt put up  for the regaling of their visitors  by the home teams.  Those who are acquainted with  the Penticton Aquatic Club hall  will at once recognize that it was  never designed for basketball, to  that the handicap the Kelownaitei  were faced with will easily be understood.  The ladies' team suffered the  greater defeat, losing by 15 points  to 4. Misses Leckie, Florence  Cooper, McFarlane, DeHart and  Mantle, defended the honor of the  Ladies' Basketball Club, and theae  ladies made strenuous effort! to  maintain the high average the club  hai gained during the season, but  without effect. Their effort! were  deterving of much praise, however.  The scouts were represented bv  E. C. Weddell, C. Gaddes. Dick  Parkinton, L Day and J. Groves.  They were opposed by a rriix'd  team of men, amongit whom were  Rev. Miller and Dr. Turner, and  from the commencement it was  apparent there wai to be "war to  the finiih"���and there wat���but  the battle wat to the ttrong, and  Penticton were the winnera by a  tcore of 16 point! to 9.  Local Pastor Receives  Call From Vancouver  Rev. W. A. Bennett Accepts  Pulpit at Emmanuel Church  After briefly addressing a well-  attended quarterly business meeting of church members last night,  the Baptist pattor, the Rev. W.  Arnold Bennett, tendered hit resignation in view of an invitation  to the pastorale of Emmanuel  Church, South  Vancouver.     The  call" was embodied in a telegram  v/hich arrived Monday following a  meeting of the city church members, who reached their decision  after hearing Mr. Bennett preach  on Easter Sunday.  Mr. Bennett, who took up the  local pastorate on August 20th,  1917, ia a forceful speaker, hold:  ing strong denominational and  doctrinal views, and since taking  Up residence in Kelowna has materially assisted in arousing enthusiasm in church work and increasing the congregation. He it a  native of London, Eng., and waa  trained at Brandon College, Man.,  afterwards holding pastorates at  First Baptist Church and later at  Emmanuel Church, in that city.  According to views expressed  in the meeting last night it was felt  that the pastor had been invited to  a greater field of service than wat  open to him in Kelowna, and whilst  regret wai expreased by many at  hia pending departure, it was felt  the only course open was to accept  the   resignation,   which   will   take  fleet on May 25th.

'A chicl'i amanft ye laltin'nolei mad feth, he'll  prent them."���Burnt.  "There were sounds of revelry'' on  Saturday evening lott in the neighbourhood of the wharf. The buzz of conversation and clatter of knives, forks anJ  crockery emanating from the veterana'  rooms, wat a mott tantalizing intimation  to the patter by that the membera were  enjoying a first-class feast.  The - entertainert thia time were the  membera of the Women't Inttitute. At I  patted on my way I could not help the  worda of the time-honoured toast coming  to my mind' "The ladiet: God bleat 'em.'  e       ���  It doea not aeem to be getting on for  five yeara since the memorable night when  the B.C. Horse and Rocky Mountain Ran-  gera aJtembled at a joint parade in the  park prior to leaving for their mobilization centres. Yet considerably more than  four years have come and gone since then  and, aad to say, many of our townamen  have gone in that time never to return.  In thia connection I remember that Capt  Temple, whote name figures in the long  list of our illustrious dead, commanded  the above parade on that occasion.  In the preceding remark the limitations  of our language and erroneout habit of  thought compels me to speak of our fallen aa dead. In truth and reality, those  we have "loved long since and lost  awhile" have gained, not only renown,  but immortality, and to "live in hearts we  love ia not to die." Despite the confusion  and diacord in evidence at the peace conference, our men have not sacrificed in  vain. Their efforts have brought immeasurably nearer the time referred to  by the poet whan he says:  "Then let us pray that come it may,  At come it will for a' that,  When man to man the world o'er  Shall blithers be for a' that."  ���       e  To go back again to the early davs of  the war* 1 recall the departure of the  R.M.R.'s aa they boarded the Okanagan,  led by Capt. Rose, and the excitement  and stir their departure created. A few  of our citizena had formed a band and  played them off at the wharf and I fancy  the last sounds to reach the departing  troopa, from land anyway, must have  been tha strains of "Auld Lang Syne." It  is interesting to remember, too, that aome  of the membera of that band have also  rved, and, having done their bit, are  back amongst us again..  Those who do ma the honour of perusing this column, will pardon the reminis*  cent nature of this week's remarks. But  the frequent "tooting" of tha steamer  heralding the return of more and more of  the boys, has induced this mood and trend  of thought, and I am sure bring much joy  and .tatiafaction by the knowledge, that a  stern and frightful duty has been successfully undertaken and accomplished.  a       a  m  Possibly when some one has had their  neck or a limb broken, the bye-law forbidding riding cycles on the side-walk will  be observed. This reprehensible habit  doea not aeem to have lessened very much,  even with the increaaed rigor of prosecut  ion for the offence. The selfishness of the  custom, and utter want of consideration  for the comfort, not to say safety, of foot  passengers should in itself prove the condemnation of the practice.  Oddfellows Celebrate  Centennial of Order  Special Service Sunday Morning Next at Knox Church  Oddfellows all over Canada and  the United Statea are celebrating  this week the 100th anniversary  of the founding of their order on  this contin-nl, and on Sunday  morning the local lodge, with the  affiliated Older of Rebekaba will  hold a church parade to Knox  Church, where a special aervice  will be conducted by the Rev. E.  D. Braden.  On Sunday last a party of some  sixty Oddfellow, and Rebekaht  motored up to Vernon to take part  in the service there in the Methodist church. Later they were entertained at a luncheon provided by  the Ladies' Auxiliary ot the War  Veterans, at which addresses appropriate to the occasion were  delivered by Mr. L. V. Rogers on  behalf of the Oddfellows and Mrs.  Millie for the Rebekahi. The trip  was a very enjoyable one and it is  ikely that a similar party of visitors will be down from Vernon to  take part in the local aervice on  Sunday.  Penticton lodges also held a  special service Sunday last, followed on Monday by a social evening and banquet, at which many  Kelowna visitors were present.  From the first founding of Odd-  fellowship on April 26th, 1819, in  B Jtimore. the Order has grown to  enormous proportions, the present  total membership of Oddfellows  and Rebekahs being over two and  a quarter millions, a sum of about  aix and a-ha!f million dollars being  paid out each year in lick and relief benefits.  In connection with this centennial celebration it might be mentioned a special effort it being  made in British Colnmbia to raise  .$25,000 toward . the fund ior an  Oddfellows' Home, which it il  hoped to establish in the near  future.  Mr. and Mrt. T. W. Stirling were  welcomed by a large gathering of  relative! and friendt on their arrival Thuriday.  Pte. J. H. Fisher who returned to  Kelowna Friday, is io far from recovered from hia severe illness  while overteai that he hat had to  be placed in hotpital in Kelowna.  While in England he had ��� bad  attack of flu. He wai under age.  when he went over with the 172nd.  Pte. Oan McMillan came home  Tuesday. He alio haa been unfortunate in the matter of sickness  which hat kept him in hospital a  good deal. He waa with his battalion at the time of signing of the  armistice.  Pte. J. Emsley wai alto an arrival this week.  Hospital Drive  ; Starts Monday Next  Plana Arranged to Ensure a  Thorough Canvass of City  Arrangements are now about  completed for the drive which ia  to take place next week to raise  funds for the Kelowna Hospital.  Money is needed for the threefold  object of paying off the mortgage  debt, providing separate nurses'  quarters, and. for certain items of  much-needed new equipment. The  campaign committee consist, nf  Mr. P. B. Willit., chairman, Mr. J.  Ball, treasurer, and the Rev. E. D.  Braden, secretary. The latter hai  worked hard during the paat week  getting hia canvassers into line and  mapping out their district, and on  Monday morning they will start  promptly to work.  The ibjective of $5000 in cash  for such a cauae is not high, and it  it confidently expect**) that not  only will thit turn be raised but a  substantial liat of annual subscribers gathered to ensure a steady  revenue.  In thii connection it might be  interesting to note that the city of  Kamloopt hat had a drive which realized $30,000. Surely Kelowna can  raise $5000���ar.d then some I  To aim at $5000 is but history  repeating ittelf, lor the original  subscription campaign to found  the hotpital ttarted nearly fourteen  yean ago waa for that sum. It wai  in August, 1905, that the idea of  starting a hospital in Kelowna wai  first mooted, and a meeting held  at which Measrs. E. Weddell, D.  Lloyd-Jones, D. W. Sutherland. T.  W. Stirling, T. Lawsoft. D W.  Crowley -nd E. M. Carruthers  were present. The subscription  list waa kept oprn until the following July, when it waa decided to  apply for incorporation. The following (all still in the city) appeared upon the application as provisional directors: Mesdames Stirling,  Cameron, Gieene, Boyee, DuMoulin and Mesara. Burne, Stirling, E.  Weddell. D. Lloyd-Jones. F. A.  Taylor and Boyee.  Twelve acrea of Isnd were donated for a site by the Kelowns  Land & Orchard Co.  After incorporation the first board of  directora waa Measrs. Knowles, Reekie,  Bird, Dilworth, Caddea, Cox, Lawson,  Sutherland, DeHart, Hereron, Gruyelle,  Casorso, Weddell, Stirling and DuMoulin.  Mr. P. DuMoulin became the first president,  Dr. Gaddea vice president, E. Weddell  secretary, and T. Lawson treasure.  The building contract waa let to M. J.  Curts for $6,775 aad in April, 1908. it was  opened with appropriate ceremony. Mias  McKillop was the first matron and Mis.  Clarice nurse. In 1913 the maternity wing  was added.  The purchase is announced this  week by Mr. Oscar Marr, of Vancouver, of two Rutland pro-ertic.:  the ten-acre orchard of W. Magee,  and the ranch, atock and implements of W. D. Wilson. The sale  was negotiated by Messrs. Harvey,  Duggan & Daviea.  Judge Swanion held a session  of the County Court in Kelowna  this weak.

There may be differences of  opinion about many things, but  about the need (or a liospilal in  any community the size of Kelowna there can be no doubt. Those  who keep healthy and sirong, and  know not the affliction of sickness  or accident perhaps do not realize  the need so forcibly, but they would  nut deny it. It is a burden on the  public, of course���always will be.  In the nature of things a general  hospital can never be self-supporting. Sickness or accident has no  regard for the state of the pocket-  book, and many must be treated  who have no hope of paying for  thesrrvice rendered. Also when  business is dull ��� what a happy condition of things that is!���expenses  must go on pretty much the same,  for a hospital to fulfil its purpose  must be ready for emergencies.  The government helps and the city  helps, but a large portion of the  upkeep must come from voluntary  contributions. We must "bear one  another's burdens" or society could  not exist.  To subscribe to a hospital, however, is not so much a burden as a  privilege. When the possessor of  continued health realizes what an  inestimable treasure is his, his donation to an institution which helps  those less fortunate takes on the  aspect of a thank-offering.  Next week the local hospital has  arranged a "drive" for funds.  $5000 is needed to clear off a  burdensome debt and to make  needed extensions. It is reallv a  modes! demand, especially so aa  during lhe war the Hospital has  had lo stay quiet and struggle along  as best it could. Donations in  kind are also sought and promise?  of regular subscriptions to guarantee a regular maintenance fund.  The Hospital is run as economically as it is possible to run any  such institution, and the available,  revenue stretched as far as it wil)  go, but every year it leaves a gap  which has to be filled in somehow.  If the mortgage debt were cleared  away a heavy annual charge would  be removed.  A small regular annual contribution from uvery person in the community would then suffice to keep  going an efficient and useful iusli-  tution, which could take care of  (he needs of the whole district.  When the canvasaer calls, meet  him or her generously. Don't argue  about the wav the hospital is run,  or whether ydu agree with this,  that or the other action. If you  have a kick, grab a director, and  let him have the facts to lay before  the rest of the board���but pay  your share cheerfully snd willingly.

PARADES: The dates for lhe  concert have now been definitely set for  two evening* of Thursday and Friday the  15th and 16th of May respectively, so that  next week is the Inst clear week we shall  have for rehearsals. The combined troop  therefore will parade at the club-room on  Monday, Wednesday and Friday, the 5th,  7th and 9th of May respectively at 7.15  p.m.  On Saturday evening of this week at  the Scoutmaster's office there will be a  Court of Honour for leaders only at 7.30.  As you will note we are not holding a  matinee performance thit year but two  evenings instead. On Thursday the ad-  mission for everyone will be the same as  usual, 50 cents, but on Friday while the  admission for adults will be. the same, 25  cents will be the admission for children.  It is also possible that we shall reserve  100 or so seats for an additional 25 cents,  but if we do this the scout who sells you  your ticket will be able to give you full  information. Next week there will be an  advertisement in this paper with more  details.  Mr. J. N.

Again we have to record a very severe  loss to the troop in the departure of Patrol  Leaders Charles and Leonard Gaddes of  the Benvers and Owls respectively. Leo-  nard left for Vancouver this morning and  will be joined by the rest of his family on  Thursday of this week, with the exception  of Miss Betty Gaddes who is moat kindly  remaining behind to play our accompaniments for us. Dr. Gaddes hss bought a  big ranch near Portland, Oregon, and the  boys are going to assist him in tbe work,  ing of it. They joined the troop in October, I9l5,whenthey returned to Kelowna  from California, and have been active  members ever since. Charlie is our troop  secretary as well, and both as leaders and  in all the troop activities we shall indeed  miss them, in fact we do not know how  we are going to immediately replace the  losses we are sustaining of our big boys.  Those of us left behind however must  continue to carry on for those to come after,  and for the Honour of the Troop. To  both of our leaders now leaving ua we  wish the kindest of everything in their new  home over the Border, at the same reserving our verv siacere wish that they will  eventually return and continue to be the  good Canadians they now are.  We suffered a basket-ball reverse at  Penticton on Friday last to the tune of 16  to 9. Penticton was evidently determined  to beat us this time and marched out what  we migjii term two members of their "old  guard' in the persons of Rev. Mr. Miller  and Dr. Turner in addition to a sort of  "machine-gun" in the person of Scout  Bobbie Phihney formerly of Summerland  Troop but now living in Penticton. Bobbie  just scored half of our opponents' points  from field goals. The playing space of the  Penticton floor is less than two-thirds of  ours, we believe, with a ceiling of rafters  coming down as low as the top of the  boards on which the baskets are placed.  The spectators sit around the edges of this  space and the smallness of it makes it a  very difficult floor on which to referee,  and to prevent the offence of charging.  We both offended considerably in this  respect hut we enjoyed the game and the  hospitable entertainment which we were  given afterwards in a dance and  supper,  NURSE M. BENT  P.O.

To the Editor of  The Kelowna Record,  Dear Sir: In your issue of April  24th Mr. E. F. Martin asks me lo  name the countries in which only  wine and beer are used. Until a  recent period all countries were of  that class. Distilled liquors were  first invented in the sixteenth century, hut were hardly known till  the eighteenth. In England they  were little known before 1700, and  thai is the reason why there was  no temperance movement before  that time. The Puritans were in  power from 1645 to 1660, and  were the strictest mo.alists who  ever governed a country ; but they  never interfered with the use of  wine or beer. After distilled liquors  ���vere introduced there was a quick  change of public sentiment. Under  George 1., who reigned from 1714  to 1727, gin and other distilled  liquors were prohibited for some  years; and at the same time all  alcoholic liquors were prohibited in  Russia. That proves thnt lhe prohibition movement is entirely due to.  the introduction of distilled liquors,  and would never have arisen if  only wine and beer had been in  use.  At present there are no countries  where distilled liquoraare unknown  but there are many where they are  little used ; and theae are admitted  by all competent observers to be  the most sober. Max O'Rell, who  spent his life in foreign travel, tells  us in "John Bull & Co," page 140,  that "Drunkenness is rarely caused  by wine drinking, and wine-drinking nations, auch aa France, Germany, Spain, and Italy, are the  countries where one finds fewest  drunkards." Sir Harry Johnaton,  the African explorer, is one of the  principal temperance lecturers and  writers in England, but he is honest  enough to tell the truth. In the  "Review of Reviews" for October,  1916, he 8ayn, "Wholesome red  wine and light beers do little harm  or none at all, provided there ia no  trickery or adulteration."  Youra truly,  R. B. KERR.  and for which we wish to thank our hosts  very much.  This we expect will close the basket-ball  season and now that the game has apparently caught on in Kelowna we may be  able to organize a valley league next season for scouts and others, commencing  before Christmas.  We wish to thank Scout Robert Duncan  for the gift of a Morse instrument to the  troop.

Dr. Gaddea and family are leaving to-day for Klamath Falls, Oregon, where they will make their  home for th- future. Dr. Gaddea  recently purchased a stock ranch  there.  The Salvation Army has decided  to open a branch of their organization in Kelowna, and has deputed  Lieut. Shorter, whv is now in town,  to make preliminaiy urrangementa.  She will have the assistance ahortly  of Brigadier McLean of Vancouver  who will officiate at the formal  opening which ia to take place if  possible on Sunday May 18th.  The fire brigade were called out  last Thursday night to a fire in the  old Lum Lock building on Ellis  street near the cannery. The building ia an old wreck of a place antr  has been unoccupied for a considerable time, with the exception of a  lew weeks during the influenza  epidemic, when it waa used as a  hospital for Chinese patients. The  origin of the fire is consequently  rather mysterious, and there ia a  strong suspicion that it was aet  going out of a spirit of mischief.  The brigade waa soon on the scene  and the'fire was prevented from  getting a real hold.  A party of Kelowna Curlers,  Messrs. G. A. McKay, B. McDonald  H. Lee and D. D. Campbell went  down to the coaat last week filled  with a doughty resolution to clean  things up at the great Bonspiel of  the Vancouver Curling Club. It  was a great event and though the  four champions of Kelowna did  not win the laurela they set out to  do, yet they had a good time. There  ���vere over sixty rinks competing,  with half a dozen sheets of ice. It  waa in fact the artificial ice which  disconcerted the local prayers, accustomed aa they were to nature's  product, which has a very different  effect upon the gliding "atanea."
