 Kdottma R,CC0rD  VOL. Vlli.   NO. 44.  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY. SEPTEMBER 21, 1916-4 PAGES  Y.N.GA and lis Work  Amongst Soldiers  Funds Wanted tor the Worthy  Object  For many yearn now th�� Young  Men'* Christian Asuooiutiou has been  oarrying on its magniUoent work  amongtU the young manhood of the  nation, and now that we are tmbroil-  od 'in a war whieh, haa shaken tho  whole fabrio oi the Empire, it in mill  proving it.) worth in atandmg by tn  young men who have given up their  energiee to the defenoe ol their homed  and country.  The work ol Uio Association and the  good it is accomplishing, not only i_  lhe training campa throughout ran  ada and England, but also in tlie  Held and uvcu in the treuohes waa the  subjeot of a meeting held last ni_ht  in the fresbyterian Church. j'ho  speakers were Mr. 11. E. iladcock,  the .National secretary oi the movement, and Mr. Yates who has control  over the work at the Vernon Camp.  Mayor Jones aeoupied the chair.  Mr. Yates, who was tho first speaker,   gave   somo interesting details of  the methods employed at Vernon   lo  ameliorate the condition of the sold-  iors, and to furnishva oounter Jmlimet:  to    the   evil influences which are inseparable from the   herding together  of    thousands of mon taken from all  grades of the community.     Meetings  are held in a large marquee which is  oapable   o'i   holding some 600 people.  In   'addition    there   is a restaurant,  reading room and club rooms for the  use    of the men.     A distinctive part  of the Y. M. C. A. work is the organization of all recreations anJ sports,  and bnsoball, lacrosse and other clubs  aro kept in a live and flourishing condition.    ...Not    the least  appreciated  feature ofthe Association are tho two  large    "correspondent's    tents,"   and  these ire kept full most of the time.  Hnre   facilities are provided for letter  writing,   and young   men who might  otherwise bo neglectful in this respect  aro encouraged to keep in touoh with  the folks at' home.     A valuable  part  of   the work    of the Y. M. 0, A. in  the    cities   is in connection with educational    classes,    and this has not  'been    neglected   even in a temporary  camp    Hks   that    at    Vornon.     Thej  French    language seems to be one  of  the   most popular subjects of study,  possibly in anticipation of its usefulness to the boys when the object    ot  their   training    is aohieved, and they  join the armies at the front.     Som.r  250 of the boys at' Vernon are taking  this course in "conversational Fronoh."  Mr.    Hadcock,     whose    position as  national   secretary ��� is at the present  time one of enormous labor and responsibility,-  spoko   of the large work  of    the    Association.      It    concerns  itself    with every branch of military  activity.       From the training camps  lo   the    trenohes   and    hospitals the  Y. M. C. A.    is looking after th�� soldier's    welfare.     Mr. Hadoook related  several concrete examples of what the  Association   is   doing, for 'ho   young  men,  services whioh are only realized  by    those who have actually con  contact with them.  The work, howevor, is costing  money, and Mr. Hadcock made  stirring appeal for funds for this most  vnluable cause. For the purpose of  soliciting from the people of Kelowna  a committee was appointed consisting  of Messrs. Ci. S. McKenzie, E. 0. Wed  doll, A. Evans, Prinoipal Cordon, and  Hill.  $1.50 Per Annum  Final Fall Fair Notes  All entries should be made to tho  secretary on or before September 25th  at 4 p.m.  All produce must be delivored at the  exhibition on Monday, the 25oh, but'  cut flowen may be brought in up to  10 a.m., Tuesday, when the judging'  will commence.

The oolonel and to identify and give any information  otlicers    also    visited    me on several concerning specimens brought to  him  are appearing in the preBs, but these  all indicate that not for a considerably timo has such important successes  attended the British offensive as during the past week, when the German*  have been driven back, und a considerable aroa of important ground jupi ur-  ed. It is evident from recent events  that the British and French are now-  carrying out their respective parts of  a  well considered plan.  A good deal of the credit for thu  British successes of gaining pepffestslor  of apparently; impregnable German  trenches has been put down to the  appearance of a new seuBation in the  shape of travelling land forts, or  "tanks" as they have been called,  which are really automobile tractors  of the "caterpillar" typo, armor-pin ted  and fitted with machine guns.  These long, low, dust-colored, tortoises, Bays tho Daily Mail, have no  resemblance to motor cars. They are1  in fact, steel land ships of immense  power and wonderful capacity. Tn  practice they can climb walls, push  through dense woods, cross trenches,  and manoeuvre in and oi.t of  [tfaters. One of the most remarkable  facts about thorn ia the secrecy with  which the making of their thousands  of parts waa veiled in tho Midland  town of their birth.  Matters in thc Fast aro also looking 'very favorable, both with the  Russian offensive to the north and  also in the Balkans. An Athens  despatches says information received  there indicate that the Rulgariuis  ar** beginning the evacuation of Mon  astir. It is said tho Vulgarian  archives are Iwing hastily transported  to Cskub.  The opinion is being expressed on  all sides that the appointment of  Ilindenburg to the command of the  Hun forces is but tho presage to a  general collapse, and that tha popular  hero is being mado the goat. Some  American papers are beginning to predict the early evacuation of France  and the shortening of thc German  lines in tho west.  ding acted as a flue und drew* in the  firo from the waste. Before thos i in  the place realized what was happening the little smoulder had burst into flame whioh ran with great rapid  ity up the bone-dry walls into the  roof. An attempt was made with a  small hose pipe and pails of wator to  extinguish the fire but it Boon got  beyond roach \ and by the tun. the,  Fire Brigade arrived the roof waB  blazing merrily. As s-<nn as i!*h  water was put on, buwwor, the f:ie  was quickly under control and at the  end of less than half an hour ext.  guished.  Tho damage to tho building was  confined to a portion of the roof and  thc front wall. The contents of the  upper story, which consisted mostl.  of hardwood shafts, wagon parts, etc.  were badly scorched and soaked with  water, and in all probability most of  it    will    Ire lost.

Of these 459 were British reservists  who responded to the call1 to join the  colors in Fnglsnu.  The Women's Institute has also  exhibit in hand-of women's work generally, and this ia expected to be an  attractive feature.  The success of tho fruit, vegetables,  and live stock depart men is rests with  the farmers themselves, and it is confidently expected that the energetic  effort which is being made by tho  directors to build up the Fair into a  thriving institution again will be mot  with co-operation on all sides- ...  The provision of' refreshments , "for  visitors is in the hands of the Iter!  Cross society and they will take all  the proceeds over and above expenses.  In addition to the regular prize list  there is this year an unusually long  list of .Special, Prizes. Experience has ,  shown that in previous years the I  special prizes have been amongst the  most keenly contested and thare are  many this year which deserve attention. The list appears Hn anothoi  column.  It took the Boer war three years to  run up a bill for ��100,000,000, yet  more than half that stupendous sum  was expended in the courso of a few  hours when the British ,.nd German  fleets oame into action off the coast  of Jutland on May 31st. Twelve  times the daily war expenditure was  blown away in an afternoon and ovening! That is what modern naval  warfare costs.  Will Open Department Store  Messrs. W. M.

It is his declared  intention to build up a general di  partment business in Kelowna which  will meet the needs of the people in  every respect. The business will be  onduoted upon a cash basis, and by  tutting profits to the lowest figures  he expects to successfully meet any  uittdde comjioeirion from tho mail  mler houses.  Iho destructive power of the submarine is gradually being broken by  plana that are the outcome ot experience and the careful study oi the  naval engineers, attached to the Navy.  Hitherto it has been common  knowledge that the majority of traw  lets employed in the North Sea have  been provided wilh guns, and a form  oi hand greuadu for emergencies at  close grips with an enemy. The antisubmarine net, too, has, it is believed, accounted for sixty or seventy  of the enemy's U-boats.  There are other devices ior check1'  mating \ on TirpiU's muohines for re'  ducing iheBriLish Navy to scsap iron,  of which the publis is stiR in  ignorance.  The latest device is a sharp, penetrating, and powerful ram built on to  the trawlers on active service. The.  is Ukely to be a great development  in the work of this new traw c  Vouug fishermen, the sons of trawiei  men, aro being trained on shore aud  in buys and rivers to navigate thc  revised trawler.- Thia rearrangement  of the fighting tttrength of the Brilisk  Navy will make it hazardous for the  Gorman squadrons Lo again raid the  East Coast. ... The new mia 1 <  has been studiously kept in the  dark from tho spies that are believed  to be in hiding in some partB of tic  eastern shores of England.

By the end of tho second year, the  war has cost all round.approximately  $45,000,000,000. All but a small proportion of this enormous amount' haa  been raised by war loans. Capital  oannot continue to be borrowed at  that rate for war purposes. If the  war continues there will be less borrowing and more taring, more for the  living and lees for the unborn to pay,  and that will mean putting war itself  on diminished rations.

Allies Not Dependent on  kU.S. lo Supply Muiiilioiu>  Furnishes   Lees    Than 5 per cent.  Shells Uaed by Entente Vowt-rn  Despite the fact that tlie United  States is daily sending two million  dollars worth of war materials hOI'OSS  tho Atlantic, that country's ..autriiui  tion to the munition supplies of tin  Allies is but "a drop in the bi-.-Jiiot.'  Some time .igo a setni-oHici-,1 state  ment was mado to the effect that th  United States furnished less than tw��  por    cent. inco then   other   esti  mates have been made whieh plac  the figure at nearly 5 per cent. Even  accepting the latter figure as the correct one, it is evident that tbe con  tributions made by the United States  are a very, very small proportion of  the total number of shells he'd  shipped to the front.  We havo generally been led to believe that tho Krupp factory at Essen wns the largest munition plant  in the world. Today the steel works  alone of Sheffield are Infinitely  greater than the whole-of the Krupp  plant. Already upwards of twenty  live million dollars have liven spent  in new munition plants at Shelllnld,  and with the additions now under  way, fif|y million dollars worth o'  new plants will shortly be turning  out explosives from this one ritv. Un  wards of 12,000 men are employed it,  shell making in that city, while  number equally as large is engaged it  the manufacture of cannon.  To-day Lloyd George has nearly  3,000 plants engaged in the in ami  facture of munitions, employing  nearly 1,000,000 men and women. Tn  addition to these plants, under di  rect government supervision, there  are many other private factories engaged in the manufacture of shells an !  other war nat*rials.

OVERRATED GERMAN EFFICIENCY  German efficiency will be made less  of in the future. Its limitations are  as obvious as those of an analytical  conclusion. It solves a given problem, working from the premises laid  down, but it is baffled by the unexpected and lacks imagination to foresee new conditions. It sees narrowly  in a straight line, and when deflected  by unconsidered obstacles, which ima-  trinat'on might have provided for, it  is like a locomotive off the track.���  New York. Times.

Parades:      The 1'atrol Loaders and  Seconds will parade at the (Uub-ioo.i.  on    Friday, the il'Jth instant, ut 7.15  p.m. sharp.  From the advertising posters in connection with tho Full Fail-, you will  have noticed j. hut. there are two racus  for Hoy Scouts; one a relay race i>f  hulf-a-mile, and tho other a bicycle  relay race of one mile. We, are hoping that individual patrols will be  able to furnish teams for those races,  so get together with your patrols  Leaders, and let us know at once  whether you can furnish a team.  In order to have somo practice for  tho bicycle racing we uro holding n  paper chase of bicycles on Saturday  next, the 23rd, at half-past two  sharp. We want every Scout in tho  troop who,can manage to get hold of  a bicycle lor the afternoon to take  part, and ouch patrol is to lie responsible for two haversacks full of papi  for making the trail. The pat ml  Leaders of the Kangaroos, Wood  I'igeons and Beavers cannot be there,  so the Seconds of these patrols will  be responsible for this duty. Only  two hares will be chosen, und all the  cyclists who would like to bo tbe  hares must hand in their names to  either of thc Scout Masters or to the  Troop Leader by Friday afternoon.  From those handing in thoir nam is  two will be drawn, and they will be  advised on Saturday morning, in order  thut they may map out their route.  This will be the first parade of th,  season, and it will of course be Full  Dress, without staves. Any scoul b  who have not got bicycles, but who  I lank they can run as fust us sonv  of the others can cycle, can of eoun  Hike part in the chase.  Scouts taking part in the races al  the Fair will oE course appear in the  uniform, and we should like ull other  ��i'outs to appear in uniform, paitl  ularily those wearing the ambuluir.  badge, because in a crowd you never  know when you might have occasion  to use tho knowledge your badge is  supposed to represent.  You will note from the ordcri that  wo are holding a meeting of Patrol  Loaders und Seconds next week. Wo  are hoping our regular' troop meetings  will comnionce the following week, ol  which notice will be given ih this  column. ,,  We are very glad to note that the  late Scout Cornwell haB been awarded  the Victoria Cross by the King. We  are waiting to hear from patrols with  regard to the Cornwell fund, whieh  waa mentioned at the Patrol Leaders'  meeting laBt Tuesday.  The Patjrol Leaders of the Bristol  Scouts, England, recently held a very  successful conference. The paper  which drew the most1 discussion w*a  one, on tho question of whether or  not a scout should smoke. - Of course  there are many hundreds of Bcouts  who are over eighteen years of age in  England, but it was agreed at the  meeting that no soout should ever  smoko in uniform, regardless of age.  This would be a very interesting paper  for the Patrol leaders of South Okanagan, when they hold their confer  ence, ...The question of whether Scout  Mailers should smoke or not, als.:  came up for discussion, and we will  leave you to guess what was agree  upon as to this. The patrol system  formed the subject of another very interesting discussion. These conferences of Patrol Leaders are of incalculable benefit to the movement.  Scout Charles Gaddes passed the  teBt for his Swimmer's Badge, and  Soout Davie passed his swimmJhg  test for the First Class Badge on  Monday afternoon, before Mr. -T. F.  Burne.  DIDN'T DO IT.

Scheme to Keep Lake at  a Permanent Level  Aggangements havo been made by  the engineers in charge of the dredging operations on the river south of  Penticton to provide meant to preserve a uniform lake level throughout  the year, and avoid aB far us possible  the fluctuations which at present are  observable.  ��� At tho present time the lake wute*  is about a foot higher than the zero  mark on the railway wharf at Pentio  ton. It is planned never to allow  tho water in the lake to drop below  this mark, so that already the How  into Okanagan river is, being out down  to preserve the present level.  At the dam at tho mouth of the  river there is a centre spillway,  through whioh navigation goes, with  also nine small sluiceways. Thos ���  sluiceways aggregate 72 feet in width  They havo boon closed with live stop*  logs in each one. Last year ote'i  sluiceway had only tout' stop-logs, but  an additional ono lias been added in  order that thc sluiceways may b i  completely closed.  About three and a half feet of wate:  is now pouring through tho centre  spillway. Later on this channel will  be narrowed down, and if necessary,  the depth.- will alwo be reduced from  three nnd a half feat,  ft is hoped in this way by gradually reducing the flow of water now running into tho river to preserve tho  level of the lake and avoid lust win-  tor's low water, when large, sundbar-  uppeurod along thc Penticton shore  lino. Tf the lake level wore allowed to  drop much lower than it is at prVent  there would soon bo many sandbars  along the waterfront and tho growt'i  of weeds in the water would be encouraged.

Zeppelins Prove Cosily Things  In the last two years there have  beon forty-one Zeppelin raids on TCng  land, theniy-three in 1015 and; eight.en  in 1916, including the one last Sunday  morning. This summary does not  take into account the many aero am'  seaplane attacks, and tho numerous  abortive attempts which have been  driven back at thb coase or balked  by  shifting  winds  or misty    weather.  In these raids, if one takes three  X.ep| lelins ub the average numhu ���,  and allows three tons of explosive  and incendiary bombs as missiles,  nupposing each bomb weighs lift  pounds, approximately 15,000 will lv  the number dropped in England or  in   tho   North   Sea,   in   the last   two  of'  years. .-  The British Government hae mad  public the number of casualties aft  each raid and these aggregate 356  dead nnd 980 wounded. This means  that it takes more than a ton  (Ierman bombs for every British man,  woman and child who has been killed.t  Since the war began it has been  definitely reported that fourteen  Zeppelins have* been wrecked; the  real number is probably muoh lnrgf  It is estimated that it costs at leas  1250,000 to build a Zeppelin.

Interest in the Board of Trade  meetings seems for some reason  to have fallen to a low ebb, and  the last few meetings have been  very poorly attended. Tuesday  was the night for the regular  monthly meeting, but although the  secretary sent out some ninety  notices to members, not sufficient  turned out to form a quorum and  the meeting had to be abandoned.

It was then conBidere'l  good work to put out 800 cans a day.  A modern factory will put up about  100.000 runs in a day with equal ease.  The lirst Vanning factory in Ontario  was started 34 years ago. There arc  about 120 factories in operation at  present and these give employment to  1-1,000 people.  The total output of the factories is  between thn-e ami four million case*  with 24 tins in a case.  This is mffioleot to supply a rnil-  roftd oi 'J0 cars for each working day  oS the year.  The average yield of tomatoes i;i  around 250 bushels per acre, and ean-  ihtb expect to pay 25 cents por bushel  this year.  The average yield of corn runs ul  four tons of cobs per ucro. This will  bring $1 to 88 per ton, and the corn  fodder  left   is  worth   nearly nn  much.  Tho straw from which pens nre taken  for canning make excellent feed. In  some cases it is hauled back from the  factories and sold back to the fanners by the ton for winter fending, in  a few cases it is fed diroet from lhe  silo to stock owned by the canning  companies.

Tenders to be in by the 1st  October, 1916. 44-5  One of the greatest problems which  confront the military loaders of the  different countries is to supply the  soldiers with adequate satisfying ;\>od.  N'apoleon spoke truly when ho nftitl  that armies fight on their bellies, 't he  British commissariat has had r.i.ny  problems to Bolve. Men well fed at  home have to be well fed at the front.  The English soldier must have his  jam and marmalade as well   as   1 toi*.  The RuBsian soldier presents an  easier problem. AH ho asks is plenty  of "steheo," a sort of jrruel <>r llu'k  soup mado of pork, oatmeal, pot..toe*  and cabbage boiled together with Halt  and other seasoning.     Tim French B' 1-  diflt also oontanuu vast nuiintJUss  ��f  what he calls "soup," although in  reality it is n thick nnd nourishing  stew, mado of meat, potatoe-* and  various  other  vegetables.  Italian soldiera demand il.tir regular  supply of macaroni and spaghetti,  and cat littlo moat. Their diet 0OU  slstfl largely of farinaceous foods,  fruits and wine, the latter (icing Issued  as part of thoir regular rations. Thc  Herman soldier getB hia meat rations  largely in the form of sausage Give  a Teuton plenty of sausage .with beer  to wash it down, and he is perfect 1;  content.  Tho British fighters from India de  mand a menu entirely different from  that of the Tommies, and tho Tuivns  of tho French army aft also peculiar  in their tastes. Tho food most favor-  od by the colored Algerian soldiery  is "cous-cous," or boiled semolina,  made of tho large hard grains retain  ed in the bolting machine aftor the  line flour has passed through it. The  se'imlina is served either plain or  with the, addition of vegetables, sometimes with a little mutton or goa'  flesh added. On this diet, a Turoo  regiment will march farther and carry  a heavier load with less fatigue than  -my other soldier of any nation.  MUNITIONS FOR THE HUNS  At a luuchoon 61 prominent munition manufacturers, one of the men  announced that his company had just  closed a contract for 5,000,000 shells  to l)o delivered in Uormany. The  others wore somewhat startled at  such a statement und somebody im-  m.wliately  asked:  "How are you goiug to get them  in?"  ''The French are going to shoot  them in," was the answer.  ���*     PROFESSIONAL AND  BUSINESS CARDS  BURNE & TEMPLE  Solicitors,  Notaries Public,  Conveyanceis, etc.  KELOWNA, :: B.C  R. B.
