But this ia not all. Xhure will be  special prizes given by local people.  ���Mr. L. V. iiogars started things going  in this direction, by ofiering $11) towards prises tor any other competitions which might ba selected, and Ur.  Lynn Harvey oliersd two settings oi  specially bred Bull Orpington eggs to  be competed ior. There is no doubt  that many other prises will be ottered  to enable a variety oi contests to be  held, so that th< ie who are unable to  enter ior tbe departmental prizes may  have a chance of computing. It was  also suggested that wherever possible  the oompeting urtioles ahou.J be shovn  at tne Fail Fail.  It is proposed that this club ���hall be  _ a district club for the boys and girls  . irom Kelowna and all the surrounding rural schools. Tbe secretory of  the Farmer*' Institute has already: had  promises of quit* a large membership,  and all boy* and girl* oi from ten to  seventeen year* of age who wish to  join and make it a success an aakil  to attend, a meeting to be held in the  Brtrd of Trad* room on riatn.-;,s.y,  Arrjl 21st, at 2.30 p.m. School  teachers and all others interested are  invited to be present.  The splendid sneeess which his attended the organization of -'ay' nr.d  Girls' Club* in other part* of Canada  las bean largely due to the ooope.-��-  tion of the business men is the rural  town*, oi fanner*' and women'* institutes, agriettltuial societies, and above  all to Uie excellent support end cnoou-  ragemene given by the formers themselves. It is to be hoped that wKole-  heerted rapport will be forthcoming  to this new organisation.  Remember ��� time of meeting, 3.30;  date of meeting, Saturday, April 31*t;  place of meeting, Board of Trade  room.  British Make Further  Big Advance Id West  Canadians Take Important  Vimy Ridge- Will Force  Greater Retreat  Early Monday morning she Brititb  and Canadian tones opewJ a svwp-  ing attack on the German linos from a  point south ot Anas, thus opening up  what is believed to be the great spring  offensive. The movement was preceded  for some day* past by sensational  activity of tbe aerial force*, and the  terrific pounding of great minus ol  artillery.  Definite report* are still tasking as  to the precise extent of the territory  which ha* been recaptured, but it is  certain that by sheer weight ot artillery fire the enemy'* defences have been  literally blasted to pieces, and rendered untenable tor many miles. The  numbers of prisoner* are believed to  run up to over 15,000, with a large  number of guns.  Tbe Canadians, who had one of the  hardest bits of the front to contend  with are now in oomplete occupation  ot the famous Vimy Ridge, even its  eastern slope* having been cleared of  the enemy. The importance of the  ridge is that it dominates the great  mining region surrounding Lens, which  will in consequenoe have to evacuated  by the'Germans.  Despite heavy snowstorms, gnd ten-  aceous resistance bythe Germans, tho  British infantry, clad in heavy sheepskins are advanoing so fast thae the  line changes from hour to hour. The  Germans have undoubtedly suffered a  terrible and disastrous defeat.

The death roll was 34. Very'little  hope Si entertained ot romjuing any oi  the men alive.  ���   A West Summerland syndicate has  leased a large building in that town  and is converting it into a motion  pioture theatre. It is planned to be  ready for business in May.  ���    '���   '  Towns on the coast ot Kent were  bombarded again last Thursday night  by German aeroplanes. Eight bomb*  were dropped, most of which fell in the  open. There were no casualties, ami  no damage was den* tav* the breaK -  ioKttfJsmm.  Messrs. A. Berard and McNab  went up to Kamloops this week  with a view to joining the Forester*.  Mr*. Knowels with her little boy  from Vancouver is at present on  a visit to her brother, Mr. J. B.  Knowles.  Capt. G. C. Rose wa* in town  for a few days over the week-end.  He is now recruiting for the Foresters and expects shortly to go overseas with a draft pJ that body.  Word came this morning that  Pte. Walter A. Fuller, *on of Mr.  Mr. W. S. Fuller, had been wounded. The injury wa* apparently not  serious, but consisted of a gunshot  wound in the arm.  The Imperial Oil Co.'s sheds  are again open to supply gasolene  to car owner* in email quantities.  For some time thi* was discontinued and only barrels supplied, but  the company has again decided to  open the sheds.  A chinaman, named Jcy' Hong,  was found by the police yesterday  in possession of opium, and joy  was turned to mourning when he  found himself in the city lockup.  He was let out on a bail of $50,  but ha* since failed to show up at  the specified time for trial, and hi*  $50 went into the city treasury.  The death occurred in the Vancouver General Hospital on Monday last, of Samuel S. Ray. '.Mr.  Ray will be remembered by the  old-timers in the valley, having  owned for a number of years the  property now cwned by Geo.  Thompson. He left Kelowna a-  bout fourteen ' year* ago and has  since resided in Vancouver.  There was a large gathering at  the Presbyterian church Friday afternoon to attend the funeral service of the late Mrs. S. M. Simpson.  Tlie Rev. W. D. Braden officiated.  Flowers and wreaths were sent  from the Oddfellows Lodscof  which Mr, Simpson is a member,  the United Churches, the Methodist Bible dais, and many other organization* and friends. Present  at the funeral were Mrs. Simpson,  snr., and deceased's sister, Mrs.  W. J. Clement, who arrived on the  afternoon boat.  A new era in the development  of educational facilitie* at Okanagan Mission was marked on Tuesday by the formal opening of the  handsome new school which ha*  just been completed by the government to take the place of the  little old one-room building which  has long outlived its usefulness.  The grievance of the Mission residents, and particularly parent*  of children, over the absurd inadequacy of the old school, ha*  been, somewhat akin to the grievance of Kelowna people over their  palatial courthouse���something almost too deep for words. They  have tried for a very long time to  have a better building erected,  and their appreciation of the really  fine school which has just been  handed over to the trustee*, undoubtedly the beat designed and  most modern of its size in the district, i* consequently very sincere.  It is a frame building affording  two class rooms, large and well  lighted with necessary cloakrooms  and entrance hall. Beneath the  classrooms and on the ground  level are two concreted basements,  dry and comfortable, so as to be  available for playrooms in bad  weather. On the ground floor is  also the furnace room, equipped  with an up-to-date hot-air furnace  which will supply ample heat to  entire building. The whole building is very conveniently planned  and well finished and reflects great  credit upon the contractor, Mr. T.  Crowell, of Vernon. The site ha*  apparently been well chosen, and  is situated on the main road almost  opposite the chuich.  The old school wa* situated  some distance away on what is  known a* the " swamp road." A*  the district developed, however,  the centre of population shifted  further south, and when the new  building lite was being chosen, it  was deemed desirable to select the  more central location near to the  townsite and wharf. As an instance of how the diatrict has outgrown the older building it might  be mentioned that there are at present thirty-eight pupils in attend.  anee, and these had to be crowded  Result of High School Easter  Examinations  Handel's 1  Successfully Rendered  Local Singers Appear to Good  Advantage in Great Oratorio  Following are the result* of the  regular sessional examination at  the high school.

The change  to the fine new roomy structure  will, therefore, be acceptable to all  concerned, and not the least to the  teacher, Mia* Jardine. The trustees, Messrs. W. 0. Walker, chairman, C. C. Fuller, secretary, and C.  Marty, and all who have worked  earnestly to secure the inag0ss\\\  meat, are to be congratulates upon  the result of their effort*.  The opening ceremony wa* to  have been performed by Mr. J. W.  Jones, M.L.A., who, it was stated,  had been largely iustrumental in  securing the attention of the government to the educational needs  of the district, but, a* it wa* urgently necessary for him to leave  the [same morning in order to be  present at the opening session of  the legislature following the Easter  vacation, that duty was undertaken  by Mayor Sutherland, of Kelowna.  There were also present Messrs.  J. A. Bigger and W. R. Trench, of  the Kelowna school board, and  Mr. L. V. Rogers, principal of the  Kelowna High School.  Mr. W. D. Walker, who acted as  chairman, read a letter from Mr.  Jones deeply regretting hi* inability to be present for the reason  stated. He offered congratulations  to the trustees and residents upon  becoming possessor* of so fine a  building and wished the school a  bright and prosperous future. Mr.  Walker said that Mr. Jones had  taken a tremendous interest in the  project and he felt *ure that without him they would not have been  able to obtain the school at the present time,  Mayor Sutherland in commenting upon the handsome nature of  the school they were opening, said  he had every reason to take a deep  personal interest in matters ot this  kind for a good deal oi hi* past  life hsd been spent in educational  work.

Fruit men, for  instance, would measure up a d  trict by the extent of its orchards,  the number of its trees and of the  carloads of fruit shipped out;  dairymen would think of its agricultural possibilities, its cows, its  butter production. As an old teacher he was accustomed to think  of the progress of a district in  terms of schools and school cliil-  eren. When he first came to the  valley there was only one school  in the district and that was at Benvoulin. He started teaching in the  first school built in Kelowna, and  still in existence, near to the old  English church. Gradually new  schools sprang up throughout the  neighbourhood,at Ellison, Rutland  East Kelowna, Glenmore, and now  this latest one at Okanagan Mission. The Mission people were  to be congratulated upon th* possession of so fine, a school which  was up-to-date in every respect,  and for its size he was quite sure  there was none better in the province. Good schools like this did  not spring out of the ground like  weeds, and it must have required  a good deal of hard work and  effort on the part of the public-  spirited residents of the district to  secure it. It would no doubt be  appreciated all the more on account of the poor little school  which they had had to put up with  during the past few years. A poor  school was a bad thing for the  scholars and a bad thing for the  teachers, and should not be tolerated in any district.  He would like to take the opportunity of offering a few suggestions. It required more than good  premises and good teachers to give  the best results in educational matters. They had to impress upon  the pupils the importance of their  early education and not 'low  them to get tired of their school  life. This could not be done unless the parents and people of the  district took an interest in them  and gave encouragement to educational matters.  In noticing the orchards which  adjoined the school grounds on  the'south he had been struck  with the opportunities afforded in  the district to branch out into new  lines. Educational systems seemed  to have got into a rut five and a-  half centuries ago and we had  never got out of it. H- would like  to see at some future time a number of acres of land laid out so that  every boy would have his own  little plot to cultivate and every  girl her flower garden. The old  idea had been that mental development could only be effected by  study of Latin and Greek irregular  verbs���the more irregular the better. Study was very much like  work���the greater interest taken in  it, the more conducive to pioper  development. He had no doubt  that that aim would be attained  by some such system, and that the  children would get a greater insight into and admiration for nature. There was a widespread  movement in America in this direction, and in many cases, especially in the larger cities, we far less  advantages than we had here. He  was afraid we did not fully appreciate those advantages or seek to  put them to proper use.  Speaking of playgrounds, it had  been said that Canadians did not  know how to play. This was true  to some extent. It was not the  fault of the country or the climate,  but due to a lack of proper supervision in the playground,   In their  games boys were not only learning  to kick a ball well, they were learning to enter into a competition of  skill with their playmates and to  conduct that competition in a fair  and honourable manner. If they  were not getting that kind of education or if they were allowed to  develop merely the militarist spirit  of " (rightfulness" in their games,  then the playgrounds had better be  cut out. In conclusion he declared I  the school open and dedicated to  the interest and education of the  children of Okanagan Mission.  Mr. J. A. Bigger added his congratulations to the people on securing the new school which they had  certainly needed. He heartily approved of the system of school  gardens as mentioned by Mayor  Sutherland, and urged lhat sacrifices be made to secure the best  possible teacheis and equipment.  Mr. L. V. Rogers spoke briefly  in a somewhat humorous vein.  The close proximity of the church,  the school and the hotel reminded  him of asimilar coincidence in an  eastern city, which had prompted  someone to refer to them as " salvation, education and damnation.'  He congratulated the district on  the energy and initiative which  had resulted in the erection of so  fine a school. The education of  the young was doubly important  at the present time when in consequence of the drain on the nation's  manhood due to the great war. it  was to the young we must look for  the future progress and development of the empire.  Dr. W. W. Jones, in proposing a  vote of thanks to Mayor Sutherland  said that he had noticed that when  any good work was in progress in  ihe district the name of Mayor  Sutherland was always prominent  in it. He had taken part in a good  work that day for the district had  now a good school and a good  teacher, which were amongst the  first requisites for the well being  ind progress of the community.  The life of the child was two-fold.  There was its school life and home  life, and only the parents could so  interweave the two so that the  child was never allowed to think  school a nuisance. In taking part  in the opening of the new school  ihey might well be taking part in  the commencement of a new era  for the district. He felt that they  had passed the trying period and  there were signs of the dawning of  a brighter dav. He believedthat  times were beginning tg get better,  and it was to be hoped that this  might be so.  In extending an invitation to all  present to partake of refreshments  which had been provided in an  adjoining room. Mr. Walker thanked the committee who had had  charge of the arrangements, and  mentioned in particular Mr. and  Mrs. Sweney who had gone to a  great deal of trouble in making  cakes and decorating the school.  This evening there is to be some  still further house-warming in the  shape of a dance.  Orders for  Local  Scouts  *M prepared"     Kelowna Troop  Troop First;   Self Last  Edited by Pioneer. April 10. 1917  Orders by command for week  ending 21st of April, 1917.  DUTIES: Orderly patrol for  week, Eagles; next for duty, Otters.  PARADES : The combined  troop will parade at the club room  on Wednesday the 18th instant at  7.15 p.m. for signalling, physical  drill and other rehearsals; at the  exhibition building on Friday the  20th instant for basket ball, and  on Saturday the 21st instant, at the  club room at 2.30 p.m.  One of the greatest dangers to a  patrol is to have too many in it.  If it is just a sertion for drill purposes it doesn't matter; if it is a  scout patrol it matters everything  and six is quite enough, fewer  won't hurt.  Which is better, to have eight  scouts whom you can't train  efficiently, because there are so  many, or four-keen chaps whom  vou can do really good work with?  Don't be afraid of keeping both  troop and patrols small in numbers. Let it be known that you  won't have slackers, and that you  work hard. Don't pester boys to  join, let them pester you. Have  a waiting list and if a boy is still  keen after being on the list a month  hand him over to one of your  scouts and tell him not to appear  again until he has been taught  eveiything necessary for the tenderfoot test. When he does ap-  teot him thoroughly and if he passes admit him into the patrol with  due ceremony.  Everyone knows the good scoutl  One meets him here, there and  everywhere. You san tell him in  a moment with his smart uniform  cheerful face, and the healthy  look of his brown knees. The  good scout always has a first class  badge, he knows his job too, he is  a real handyman who makes use  of his scouting knowledge, and  one whose badges really tell you  what he can do. The good scout  has an alert, businesslike way  about him, the more you have to  do with him the mora you like  him. No swank; clear intelligent  answers to all your questions, ready  in a moment to do you a good  turn.

Riggs was a visitor in  town from the coast over the holiday being the guest of his' father  and sister.  The W. A. of St. Michael's  church meets in the parish hall on  Friday the 20th at 2.30 p.m.  A man named Jimmy Moore  was arrested yesterday on his  ranch near Okanagan Centre and  brought into town on a charge of  horse stealing. He was taken up  Vernon this morning by the Vernon chief and will be brought up  for trial there.  The Board of Trade holds its  meeting next Tuesday evening.  Some time ago members were asked to bring in suggestions for civic  improvement, and it is understood  that on Tuesday these suggestions  are to be received and discussed  There are many ways in which the  town and district could be improved both from a business and residential point of view, and the first  step in getting such things done is  for some one to make the suggestion.  Rutland News  (From oar own oorreanoncVnO.  Mrs. Kincaid and daughter spent  Easter holidays with Mrs. R. Spoul.  Mrs. S. W. Randal, daughter of  Mr. McGregor, is here from Vancouver on a visit over Friday.  Mr. Henry Lock and family  moved out from town last week  and are now living in Rutland.  Mrs. A W. Barber arrived Friday from Salmon Arm to spend a  few days with her mother Mrs. H.  W. Fleming.  At the Easter Sunday services  at the Methodist church, special  music was rendered from the  oratario, "Christ and His Soldiers."  Probably over twenty people  from Rutland went to Kelowna on  Good Friday to hear the 'Messiah'  in the Methodist church.  The road from Barlee's to Mawhinney's corner is at present being gravelled and nothing but an  aeroplane or perhaps a "tank"  could travel it in comfort.  The Young People's Society of  the Kelowna churches are to repeat their successful character  sketch the "Minister's Bride" in the  Rutland schoolhouse on Friday  April 20th, the proceeds going to  the Rutland Red Cross fund.  Mr. Joel Craig had a narrow  escape last week when his horse  took a notion to kick out at him,  that is he didn't quite escape,  but he was lucky enough to get off  with only a few cuts about the  head and face.  The district is waking up again  after its winter sleep and everywhere one sees the teams crawling  across the fields and the dark  moist earth folding back from the  plow. Rutland is going in for a  record production this year.  Gossip is busy this week with  the story of a romantic escapade  of two young people of the district who carried off a real elopement during the week-end. Tom  Morrison and Miss Rita Maxwell  astonished their friends by making  a flying automobile trip across the  border and returning Tuesday  morning by the boat as Mr. and  Mrs. Morrison.  The opening of spring brings  other things besides the singing of  birds and the opening of the buds,  and any Rutlander will tell you  that these things are nothing when  weighed against the state of the  roads. We are eagerly looking  forward to the end of the war,  when some of the aeroplanes can  be devoted to passenger traffic  between here and town. v  Rutland is plunged into grief  again this week by a report which  came in last Sunday to Mra. Plowman that her son Fred was killed  at the front. Fred was only a young  fellow of' 21, and had practical!v  grown up in the neighbourhood.  Both his father and brother are  over in England at the present  lime, the former with the Foresters  and the latter with the 172nd. Accustomed aa we are becoming to  this killing and wounding of our  young men, the whole sympathy  of the district will go out to Mrs.  Plowman in her sorrow.,  Mr. F. R. E. DeHart is a visitor |  to Enderby this week.  Mr. T. G. Speer and two child-.  ren left Saturday for the coast,  where Mrs. Speer has been visiting |  for a short time past.  Mr. A. Patterson left last week  for Rumsay, Alta., in response to  a telegram announcing the serious  illness of his son William.  The regulai meeting of the I  Country Girls Hospital Aid will  be held at the home of Mrs. Patterson left side of St. Paul Street!  on Saturday at 3 p.m.  ' A conference of local Sunday  School workers is being held today, both afternoon and evening  in the Baptist church.  Once again the swallows have  returned to their old home at the  Record office, arriving Monday  morning. The noise of the  machinery seems not to effect then.  in the least although a couple of  nests have been built near the  motor.  Miss Page and Miss Thompson  of the Public school staff were  amongst the passengers by Friday  morning's boat, the former to  Mi'sion City, and the latter to  Port Hammond where they will  spend the holiday week.  Ihe successful sketch "The  Minister's Bride," given by the  young people of the United  churches, is to be repeated on  Thursday April 19th in the  Methodist church, this time in aid  of the Red Cross funds,  J. C. Stockwell has sold out his  warehouse business to G, W.  Cunningham who has taken poses-  sion and will continue in the flour  and feed business and general  commission line. Mr. Stockwell is  leaving Saturday morning on a trip  to the east and expects to be absent about a couple of months,  when he will return and continue  in the auctioneering business.

The  evening is being arranged by the  LadiesAid and the small admission  fee will be placed to the credit of  the church fund.  Mr. Leonard Smith is leaving for  the coast on Thursday next having  enlisted in the Canadian Artillary  unit in training there. Mr. Smith  has four other brothers in the  King's service, one being in 'the  navy, one in the Flying Corps, one  in the Royal Field Artillery and  another in the trenches.  Our legislative representative  Mr. J. W. Jones, returned Friday  from Victoria, taking advantage of  the few days Easter vacation to  visit his home. He had planned  to be present at the opening of the  new Okanagan Mission school,  but unfortunately he had to return  early Tuesday morning to be present at the opening session of the  House on Wednesday, having  learned that the Water Act  Amendment, which is of such vital  importance to the district, was tc  come up for discussion Then.  Mr. Jones though not entirely recovered from his recent illness is  much better, and as recent reports  have shown is keeping close to the  doings of the house, and not sparing himself in the fulfilment of his  duties.

Dan Berard, who was wounded some little time back, has  written a letter home to his sister  this week, describing how he came  to be laid up in hospital.  He is still there, he says, but getting along all right, though with a  piece of shell still stuck in his face.  His left hip also bothers him a little. He is still wondering how he  came out alive.  They were making an attack on  "Fritz's" trenches, he says, and he  and a pal were detailed to carry a  high explosive shell, weighing a-  bout thirty pounds. They had to  carry it under theirleft arms, while  they grasped their rifles with the  right. The Germans had noticed  the attack and opened fire with  shells and machine guns. All of  a sudden he heard a shell come  buzzing up and it exploded between them, at the same time exploding the one they were carrying. He was thrown about ten feet  and landed in a shell hole. When  he got up he looked around for  his pal but there was not enough  left of him to recognise. It was a  sight he never wants to see again.  When he managed to catch up to  his section they had got tangled  up in the barbed wire and had to  throw away equipment to get out.  On their way back they rescued a  man from a shell hole who had  bren shot four times in the leg,  and as they rushed the trench one  of their number was "hot through  the head.

The fact is also em.  phasized that all butter  in such packages must  be ofthe full net'weight  of sixteen ounces, and  in default of aame a  fine of from $10 to $30  for each -offence it imposed. Whey butter  must be so labelled  even when mixed with  dairy butter, and dairy  butter retains its label  though it be mixed  with the creamery product.  You can be supplied  with neatly - printed  wrappers for your  butter at the Kelowna  Record Office, for the  following prices:  100  200  500  1000  PAPER & PRINTING  INCLUDED  II ��,  $1.50  2.00  3.15  4.50  These prices include Both the  Paper, which is the best obtainable  for the purpose, and the Printing  of same.    Please note this.  Owing to the extraordinary rise in the price of butter  parchment (which has gone up over 100 per cent) we  have been reluctantly obliged to raise our prices slightly.  Nearly all this paper was previously manufactured in Belgium, and needless to say this supply has been entirely  cut off. - Unfortunately there is no guarantee against further increases, indeed, they are more than likely.

The late  Lord Palmerston Is credited with  having Btated that even a great war  had Its benefits tor the English people  Inasmuch as It Induced them to study  geography. There are people who  go much further, and seriously argue  that the horrors of war are afterwards  compensated by reforms and discoveries which mflhkind at large would  never have enjoyed but for the drastic  ohnstisement which war Inflicts.  Among the arguments of this kind  deduced from history is the statement  that nil the wealth and luxury the  world has enjoyed from the Industry  of brass-working would probably have  been lost- but for the sacking and  burning of the city of Corinth in the  year 14G B. C. In Corinth there wore  immense quantities of cold, 'silver.  and copper, and It Is said that the  violence of the conHagrat'on was so  groat that these precious rretals were  melted***ind ran together, anil thus  the famous Corlthian brass was f.rst  manufactured.

The Advertising Men's League of New York  has a Vigilance Committee, whose duty it is to  ferret out and hunt down fraudulent advertisers.  It has been found that the most successful advertisers are the truthful ones; that sharpers and  knaves are not permanently successful.  Look at the advertising columns for yourself.  You will find that every article advertised regularly and consistently over a period of years is an  article of real merit. The fact that the advertising is continuous is proof of this.  It is safer to buy advertised goods.
