Also yi��t if any poll be required such  be held on the following Ihuradey between the houri of 9 a.m., and 7 p.m.  It waa decided to hold the annual  meeting of ratepayers m the Opera  House on Friday, January 7th at 8  p.m.  Mr. E. G. Weddell, tolioitor lor C.  Hoy, asked the council whether payment would be required of all taxes  levied against a certain block before  a retubdivision of a portion of the  property would he considered, lhe  clerk wat instructed to reply, that tht  council would only require for tbit  purpose the payment ol all taxes lov-  ied against property included in the  proposed subdivision.  The Kelowna Hospital Society asked  for a further attention of tiros in  which to pay their light and water  rates. It wat resolved to grant an  extension until the end of the year,  aad to refer the lotto to the incoming  council for consideration.  A communication waa rekd from ths  Union of B. C. Municipalities enabling a copy oi a report oi a spatial  committee appointed *t the laat convention to deal with tht question of  etrtifioatee covering delinquiat taxes  and asking tor the oouacii'i opfajioa  in rtitrtnet to it.  Tht matter waa referred to the Finance oommittet who were requestor'  to draft rtcommendationt as to tht  collection of taxes, aad to forward  them in reply to the letter.  An announcement was mads that an  offer haa been received for a block oi  1914 Local Improvement Debentures  amounting to $10,309.00 oi ninety aad  accrued interest, and this the Finance  Committee had decided to accept,  A resolution irom the Kelowna Over-  teat contingent informed the council  that they had formed a hockey club  and proposed to flood tht courts oi  tht Kelowna tennis Club and use (hum  as a rink. It wat the intention. to  charge a nominal lee ior admiuioif to  all wha were not membera oi the con  tingent and after all expenses had Wen  paid any surplus hinds would bt timed over to the Red C ro.it or sows  other patriotic society. They requested the oounoil to lend them suit  eient wire ior lighting the rink and  to tupply them with water and electric light free. They intimated that  ell work in connection with the making and lighting ol the rink would  be done by .their own members.  The council expressed themielvet ss  in full sympathy with the project, and  were willing to do all in their power  t0 assist. Permission would be granted ior the free light and water, and  the light g,nd water committee would  go Into the question of the loan of  wire.  In reference to an application whioh  had been mad e to the Bank of Montreal ior a new loan against current  tuxes. Alderman Sutherland taid ths  Bank had agreed to advance money to  moot interest coupons on debentures  as they became due, but required further information before they would  give a decision in reference to a loan  for other purposes. The Finance committee would endeav0r to supply the  desired information when the auditor's  report wat received.  By-lawt 213, 214, and 215, amending  tho theatre and pool room licences,  and-reducing the feet for water and  light reconnections, were reconsidered  and finally patsed.  His Worship informed the council  that the question of interest on deferred salaries had been raised by the  resignation of a member of the school  staff. He suggeseed that aa n committee oi last year's council had promised the school teachers interest at the  rate ot eight per oent per annum upon  their    deferred salaries, the treasurer  The Prime Minister  And (Machine Guns  After the very definite, almost emphatic statement oi the Prime Minister  at St, John, N. B., on October- 20 th  no farther money should be diverted  Irom the Patriotic Fund by well mean  ing but rather thoughtless people who  claim that the equipment of Canndhn  foroes is auiioient. Sir Robert has  made it very plain that the government is full;' prepared to make every  necessary provision for gum, munitions and equipments and he appeals  to the generosity of tne public only on  behalf of the Canad;an Patriotic Fund,  The Red Cross Society 0nd sister associations. We quote below an extract from the speech in question: -  "Regarding machine' guns, we realised early in the war the. necessity of  an abundant tupply, and orders have  been given from time to time for a  very large number. Thole ordered during the first twelve montht of tbe war  are now being rapidly delivered, and  they ar? m0re than sufficient to equip  two full army corps up to the highest  standard of enemy's forces. During  the past summer the provision of machine guns became a matter of vital  interest to the Canadian people, at  reports through the press emphasized  the necessity that our foroes should  be adequately supplied with all the  machine guns that could be utilized.  Patriotic individuals offered to contribute large sums for this distinctive  purpose. The government of Ontario  made a similar patriotic proposal and  throughout the country various communities generously subscribed to the  funds for this object. During my absence in Great Britain my colleagues  endeavored to make it clear to the  people that an ample supply of machine guns had been ordered and that  these would be paid out of the Canadian Treasury. The treasury of Canada ought properly to bear all tho  cost of equipping and maintaining our  forces in th; field, and that has been  onr policy, Nevertheless, the spirit and  Impulse which prompted our people  could not be stayed, and, indeed, any  attempt to slay it would have been,  misunderstood; Vn to date the turns  Thus received by the government for  this purpose amounts to 1773,327.95.  In dealing with other needs which  will certainly rise, tho government wiM  not fail to remember that these generous and free-will contributions have  .been made. And in all your splendid  generosity, do not forget the Patriotic  Fund and the Canadian Red Cross Society. They have don; a greet work,  but they have n still greater work to  do. Appeals which assuredly will not  fall on deaf enrs must lo made in the  early future. Seo that the response is  generous and ample. When you are  makin r provision for tho Canadian Patriotic Fund, the Canadian Red Cross  Sooiety, the Cnnndinn War Contingent  Association and other like patriot io  organizations, you may be assured  that the government will not fail to  make every necessary provision lor  guns, munitions and equipments."  FEMALE SNIPER  The capture of a Turkish' woman  who had been sniping with deadly  effect is mentioned in a letter from  the Dardanelles. The letter says in  part:  "There were shrapnel and bullets all  over the place. What with our aero-  plan��� dropping bomba and our war-,  ahipt firing, the din was awful. You  have no idea what il ia like. A lot of  tho Queen's Royal West Surrey Regi  ment wero hit before they had a  chance to defend themselves. The Turk-  lay tnipert are fine shots. They paint  themselves the color of the landscape.  We oaught one who turned out to be  a woman. She had B0 identical discs,  which meant that sho had accounted  for fifty of 0ur chaps."  Cold Weather Stirs Local Hockey  Players to Organize  Soldiers Win in Christmas Morning Match   -   Overseas Con*  tingent Preparing Tennis Court Rink ��� Plan to Form  '   Clubs (or Hockey League  The first hookey game of the present  seaton in Kelowna took plaoe on  Christmas morning at the lake at  Bankhead between teams representing  the focal 102nd Overseas contingent  and the Fire Brigado, the former winning by a score of 3 to 0.  Owing to the fall of snow during the  previous night it was necessary lor  the players to put in a strenuous half  hour's work clearing the surface for  the gamo and the space cleared was  not as large us might have been desired, however it was sufficient and  considering that it was the first game  of the seaton and that the players had  had but very little chance to practice  the play throughout was foot and  comparatively cloan, and most of the  penalties handed out wero due to the  snow on the ice making it impossible  to handle the puck easily, causing the  players to accidentally trip another  in their efforts t0 carry it through the  snow.  Tho players of both teams showed  splendid form lor the amount ol practice obtained this winter and kept up  a fast pace throughout tho entire contest and sh0wed many brilliant flashes  of speed and stick handling.  The real star ol the contest, however was Walter Raymer, who scored  all three of the goale credited to the  102nd and in two of the three cases  he carried the puck nearly tho l.ngth  oi the rink in beautiful individual  rushes, Carrying it close in a"d shooting hard and true. Both toama however had several good opportunities to  score but missed owing to their p0or  shooting, this no doubt will be overcome with practice and ths 102nd  should be able to hold their cwn  against any team in the valley.  Corporal 'Mills acted as referee and  hit decisions met with the approval of  both teams nnd the good sired crowd  of spectators who were present.  Following is the line ups of both  teams.  102nd.���A. Knight, goal: I.. Petti-  grow, point; F.   Feeney,   cover   point;  W. Itaymcr, rover, 0. liaymer, left  wing; R. Sutherland, ivght wing; C.  Scott, centre.  Firo Brigade.���L. Newby, goal; C.  Nawby, point; L. Watt, cover point;  R. Kendall, rover; A. Raymer, left  wing; P. Bird, right wing; G. Kerr,  centre.  Another game haa been arranged for  New Year't morning between) the "nine  teams and this time it will be layed  on the new rink being prepared liy the  102nd at the tennia courts. The cold  weather of the oarly part of the weoK  having been favorable for ice making  the rink is now in splendid condition.  The rink this winter will be indcr  the, management of the boys ol the  102nd. and will be operated at the low  eat possible expense, therefore a small  admission fee will be charged for skating, and all monies over actual running expenses will be turned over to  the Red Cross, thus by patronizing the  rink and enjoying the splendid sport  and exorcise furnished you are ilto  materially assisting the Red Cross in  their great work.  Arrangements are under way whereby  Kelowna may have a hockey league  this season, and il suoh is the  ease there will probably be four teams  lined up, composed of two teams from  the 102nd Overseas to be known as the  Barracks team and the Drill Hall team  anrl teams representing the Fire Brigade and Bankers. Careful observation of the material tn hand for the  formation of these teams will readily  convince everyone that such' n league  would furnish the maximum of en'oy-  ment lor sport lovers at well aa much  keen and friendly rivalry among the  bov*, .There is n> doubt that two  strong teams can be selected irom the  ranks of the soldiers at well as irom  the Fire Brigade andlrom the various banks.  It is hoped that arrangements will  be completed in the near future so  that a schedule may be drawn up to  start early in the now year.  There will be services at St. Andrews  chureh, Okanagan Mission on Saturday, January 1st at 8 a.m., and 11  a.m., and on Sunday, January 2nd at  the parish ohuroh a special intercession  service will be conducted (1t 11 a.m.  (TJutlittf Mi Mat '*.)

Another Letter from  "Somewhere in Frence"  The following letter from "tome-  whore in France" hat just been received by Miss Edith Ray, of Rutland  from her cousin, Mr. George Dermid,  and says in part:  "Tho rain is coming down iu sheets  driven by tt swift, steady wind, but it  does not sound liko home. No pines  groan in the wind nt they tots their  twisted arms tn the sky, no coyote to  snoak through the shadowed wood,  nor an owl tn hoot high up in tho  hills.  "Germany continues to hold on, but  an undeniable cry for food from Germany shows an inward distress. Was  over a man so accursed un that mail-'  fitted fiend nnd war lord, the heroic  imbecile of millions of wrecked hornet,  the ambitious figurehead of Prussian  tyranny. 1 have N n over lifti tn hundred Canadians laid tide by side in a  singlo grnve, yet, the yo'in; men of  the fair Dgrain'.cm are still holding  bBok. Kr-.n'l-- speaking 1 hope lo See  those slackers who would have freedom  and liberty Rt the cott of others, forced to play their part in this war. It  ia truly n scientific and ruthless murder ol tho nation's choicest men, whilo  thousands are maimed for life, n living  remembrance ol a terrible sacrifice.  "In our first position we took in  the trenches the Germans are tupposed  to have hurled Bixty shells a minute  at us, and I do not think it it very  much exaggerated either.  "My old chums are still well, although the best of them was hit in  the shoulder with ,, muchino gun bullet .five minutes after he relieved me  as sentry in the front line trenches  I am sorry to say he will pr0bably  lose hit arm or at least tho use of it.  I am quite well in spite of the rainy,  oold weather. The trenches are merely a more attractive name for ditches  at the country it all very low. Thev  do all that oan be done to keep them  dry but without avail. We art very  well fed considering the great army  now In ins fleld."'  Five Minutes Truce  lo tarry in Wounded  In a recent letter from the front in  France the newt of a five-minuto truce  was received in Canada last week. The  letter stated that a British toidicr  who had been severely wounded close  to the German parapet in a charge on  a Saturday alternoon lay there dying  from lost of blood and hunger until  noon of the following Monday. "We  knew we could not go out to him, but  at last ono of our offiosrs who oould  tpeak German ahouted Bnd asked the  enemy if we might carry him in. Thit  wat a brave act, for il we only put  our heads over the parapet we were  liable to be killed. The Germans  shouted back and gave us five minutes  in whioh to fetch him in. Immediately fifteen ol us jumped over to go to  him, but our Captain ordered ua baok,  fearing that the Gerinana might bt'  tempted to shoot, thinking that we  were going to charge. So one officer  and a man went out with a itrtteher  and carried him in. He poor fellow  cried with joy when he knew he was  tafe, though he was very badly wounded. While they were carrying this  man they saw another nearly covered  with earth. Two others went out und  brought him in, and then we gave  three cheers for the Germans who had  proved they are' not all bad."  Plenty of Men But  Short of Small Arms  "Russia is now suffering only for  want of rifles, and when she is properly supplied at bast 2,000,000 additional soldiers will be thrown into the  fieldwith results which only next  spring's campaign csn tell," This is  the opinion of a prominent American  mining engineer who has just returned  to London after spending six months  in the Russian empire, mainly in Siberia, where ho is the chief engineer of  an important group of mines. Describing oonditfons in Russia he Boid:  "The impression whioh has prevailed  outside Russia during the great German drive through Poland wat nover  really duplicated in that country and  the only thing that could cause revolution now would be the conclusion of  an unfavorable peace with the central  powers.  "The Russian peasant is not an imaginative individual and the losses  suffered in the war have not greatly  impressed him. Even, the generally ad  mitted shortage of rifles, the wastage  of whioh has been unprecedented, is  not causing the Russians much concern as the staff has realized the rifle<  used by infantry it not an effective  weapon. The Russian army is now  well supplied with heavy guns and  munitions and their infantry is I icing  supplied with thousands of machine  guns.  "For the greater part of the was we  have used Austrian prisoners at miners in our mines, but lately we have  been receiving Germans from the government prisoners' labor bureau. These  Germans in the main are absolutely  unfit for hard labor, most of them  being old men with grey beards, whilo  others are ol the student class, many  of them wearing glasses with thiok  lenses.  "A staff officer closely connected with  the prisoners' bureau, told me that for  some time on the Dvinsk front the  Russians have been oapturiag Irom 100  to 900 women weekly. These were all  in German uniforms and were apparently serving as soldiers.  "In Petrograd I entered the recently  opened museum oi atrocities. I wat allowed to bring to England an Austrian rifle cartridge loaded with an explosive bullet that it really a miniature shrapnel shell that explodes when  a little plunger at the top is driven in  by contact with a human target.  "In the Scandinavian countries nothing was talked about except the food  shortage in Germany and some con  firmation of this was given to me by a  Dane who represents in Berlin one of  the Biggest American packing companies. This Dano declared that the lat  allowance had been reduced from eleven  lo seven ounces a person daily, and he  stated that the German working people would have a difficult time got-  ting through the winter on this reduced allowance. The Dane also to! '  that England was supplying its prisoners in Germnnv with food."  mssm  CHRISTMAS SERVICES AMONG  THE ESKIMOS OF LABRADOR  Information received' regarding the  fighting on - December 21st between  Ypres and Aomentieres indioatet that  the Germans sustained B lots of over  8000 men, without gaining any ground  says a despatch to La 1 iberte from  its Correspondent on tne northern  ! front. Tho fighting was most severe,  and a large quantity of asphyxiating  gas wat used, but the British lines  remained intact. The attack ia be-  ' lieved to have been the prelude to an  I offensive or for the purpose oi totting  I th, strength ol the British front.  Somebody has said that when the  world was being made the Creator  gathered up all the waste material ho  had left over and made Labrador out  of it. Some people say tho Creator  novor intended it to be inhabited. But  inhabited it it with a sturdy, taciturn  band of Eskimos, who, thanks to the  Moravian missionaries who have penetrated to that country, celebrated  Christmas in the'r own peculiar way.  As service time in the church, draws  near all the inhabitants, old and  young, the men on one side . nd the  w0men on the other, aro waiting in  eager expectation. It is quite dnrk  by four o'olock and the bell rings. All  come trooping in clad in the beat  clothes they can muster.  No one stays at home from these  services unless he is sick or lame nrd  whenever it is possible itleigha are  used to bring these disabled >nn ���;  the church.'  For the little children the happiest  part of the services comes later wh.n  each child receives a lighted candle,  symbolizing the light of the world.  Eaoh candle stands in a white turnip  whioh selves as a candlestick. Most  of the candles are made from deer  tallow which the Eskimos bring to  the missionaries. Alter the services  the children eat not only the turnip,  but what ia left ol the oandle as well.  Investigattons  Provincial Stock Farm and New  University Under Enquiry  Hon. A. C. Flumerielt has been appointed chairman oi a committee to  investigate affair! in connection with  the stock form at' Etsondele, opsre'-ed  in connection with the mental hospital'. Mr. Flumerielt will thortly make  a personal visit to the place and endeavor to size up the situation there.  The impre.sion is said to prevail in  the department of finance and agriculture that the farm, which was established when times were exceedingly  brisk, is pr0ving a rather expensive  luxury. The enquiry now t0 b) undertaken will decide whether tho benefits and results attained are commensurate with the cottt of the fancy  fancy stock-farming section 0f the institution.  Hon. Thomas Taylor will be head of  a committee to consider if any modification should be made in the plans,  for the provincial university at Point  Grey. The advice of the board of  governors of -the university will be  taken to ensure that the position oi  the institution shall be preserved, but  at the same time necessary retrenchments and modifications in the immediate plans may be carried out.

The Methodists held last Thursday  evening their annual Christmas tree  and entertainment, when an interesting program of music, recitations and  dialogues was presented to a large  audience. There was the usual well-  decorated Christmas tree, and old Santa Claus, but things were reversed a  little this year to Buit the timet. Instead of the children receiving presenti  they brought them. Each class made  up its own little gift for the Alexandra Orphanage at Vancouver, and  no doubt feel muoh happier for thia  little act ol self-sacrifice and kindness.

We are in receipt oi the follow ng  open letter from the Assistant Inspector of fruit Pests at Vernon, nd-  dvessed to the "Fruitgrowers of Kelowna:"  A shor,t time ago a series oi live  articles headed "Orchurd Protection"  was completed through the courtesy of  the local press. Tho object of ike articles was to cull to your attention  the "Fruit Protective Association  Movement and to suggost some oi  it's advantages in meeting the mere ,s-  ing pest control problems nf .lie  district.  The Fruit Protective Association lias  come to stay in the Okanagan Valley,  and fruit growers of any community  cannot afford t0 miss the opportunity  which this organization makes possible, in the more economic control ol  pests and diseases, taking annual toll  from much needed maximum profits,  ol our orchards. Do you believe that  a Community or Grower, fighting the  pests in spasmodic and intermitcnt  order, can compete in "Costs ol Pro- '  duotion" with the organized districts  whioh have the advantages ol tho  "Fruit Protective AsBocigtion?" |  Fruit Growers tributary to Vernon,  decided that they could not thus compete, and have grusped the Fruit Protective Association idea with vigor.  Organizations have been lormed at  Coldstream and Long Lake, Laving-  ton, B. X. Valley, and at South Vernon and Okanagan Landing. At all  ol these points whore meetings were  held, lively discussions took place, and  keen dubate followed overy suggested  advantage, but with the same result,  that growers unanimously recognized  the need oi active cooperation effort  with systematic means ot holding, the  effort to a continued working basis.  The department of agriculture is extending to Iruit growers the opportunity to help themselves solve tho problems of pest control through united  action on the part of the growers in  co-operation with the District Fruit  Pest Inspector. To this end, meetings  will .be hold, in the different communi-  Threo'thousand chauffeurs are to be  the next contribution from Canada to  the imperial forces at thi front. Enrolment in the Montreal district will  commence at once. It is hoped that  1,000 qualified men may be available  in that distriot.  Tho men will be mobilized at Ottawa. Tho kind of men needed''or the  army transport division service uro  mechanics who con drive a car while it  is all right, and get off iiul mend it  if anything goes wrong. With the extensive use of motor transports in  military work there is great demund  sor such men now.  For this expert work unusually liigli  salary has been arranged, according  to British standard. The men will be  paid J1.40 a day with the usual supplies and allowances. In addition they  will be given the following separation  allowances: For wife lis Id a week;  wife and one child, 14s 0 d; wife and  two children, 18s Id; wife nnd three  children, 21s 3d. A further allowance  of 2s lid will be made to each child  in excess of three under 16 years of  age. These separation allowances will  be paid every four weeks.  It was stated by General Wilson  that the.raising of this corps would  give an excellent opportunity for Competent chauffeurs from Canada to se-  eure service nt the front at work for  which they lire particularly fitted.  Many lives have been lost and millions of dollars worth of dumage done  during the past weok in the eastern  states by terrific snowstorms und blizzards, the most severe for many ye.trs.  A British official report says that  Capt. Arthur Stanley Wilson, member  of parliament for Yorkshire, has been  made a prisoner of war. He was conveying letters from the eastern Mediterranean to London, and was travelling by a Greek steamer, whieh w0s  stopped by an Austrian submarine. It  has been ascertained, the report says,  that none of the papers taken from  him were of any importance.  The list of appointments contu'ued  in the current issue of the B. 0. Gazette is confined to notice dealing with  the cabinet changes which took place  last week. In addition there ia a notice to tho effect that His Honor the  Lieutenant Governor in Council has  been pleased to accept the resignation  of John Herbert Turner, Esq., as  agent general, such resignation to take  effect on tho 31st of December, and another appointing Sir Richard 5Ie-  Bridc, K.C., M.G., to bo Agent Grnor-  al from the let ol January, 1916.  ties surrounding Kelowna, early in  January, and announcement, will be  given by the district inspector, Mr.  Brydon, in nost week's local press.

Indeed, when especially well  cured and ground up into alfalfa meal,  it can be called a concentrate and  classed along with gruin foods. It is  so rich that it should not be fed u'one.  There is so much protein in it tli it it  is hard on the kidneys, which organs  throw off all nitrogenous waste. It is  unwise to brin* in a cow useil to  range conditions anl begin st.ifing  her with alfnlfa at once, especially if  if exercise is not given. Any su Ulen  change of this nature tende to upset  the cow's digestive and nervous system.  Protein or nlbumen is th" food ele  ment essential to milk production, anil  is the element dearest to buy gn grain  foods. The great point al-out al'alfa  is that a supply of good alfal'n hav  obviates the necessity of buying much  grain. If corn si'uge or roots ea.i be  combined with good alfalfa hay a  satisfactory milk yield oun us o'uui.v  ed without any grain being lid. i-'on'o  well known dairy farmers fed their  cows only a'fa'fa hay anil corn siluge  in winter, except their best cows,  which get a little grain. They c'aim  (hut while th 'v do not get the maximum production, they V". it iheafest.  A ration of 20 pounds of alfalfa hay  und 40 pounds of com silage (or 5.r>  pounds of roots) will be ample i'.'r a  cow giving 25 pounds average -if milk  daily. The silage is rich in ctrbo-hy-  drates or starchy matter, nnd the alfalfa in' protein, so that one b:il.v..'es  the other.  Timothy hay is not at all a tood  rpttghage for the dairy cow, as it is  lacking in protein. It is rich i-i tho  st archy or energy producing eletli' da,  so that it gives best results when led  t��� horses. Timothy hay contains .inly  3 per cent, of digestible protein, compared with 8 per cent, in reJ clover  and 101 per cent, in alfalfa hoy. These  fiiruivs give a good comparison of  values of the-ic three roughages Ior  milk production.  A good, safe rule f0r feeding a dairy  cow; is us follows: Givo her all tho  clover or alfalfa hay she will cut, together with 35 to 55 pounds of corn  siluge or roots. In addition, give her  a pound of grain for each 4 pounds of  milk produced daily. Bran, oats and  corn or barley meal, equal parts, is a  good grain mixture. A little linseed  oil meal is also a fine thing nj 'ielp-  ing to keep the digestive organs right.  The champion cow 0f Canada is a  British Columbia Holstein, "Pietjc  Canary", owned by J. M. Steves, of  Steveston. She gave in ono year over  24,000 pounds of milk containing 938  pounds of butter fat (eoual to about  1,100 pounds of butter). Her daily  ration during the latter part of her  test was 75 pounds of mangels, 10  pounds each of ground oats and linseed meal, and 5 pounds ground barley. This was feeding for maximum  production, 0f course.  In summer the ration ol green alfalfa  should be varied a little by feeding in  addition, oats and peas, clover, green  corn, kale, or grass. Cows like a little variety, and will get tired of being  fed alfalln alone.  Thcro is some danger of bloating on  alfalfa, especially when wet or when  pnttured for the firBt time. Wet alfalfa readily ferments in the paunch.  Cows will not bloat on alfalfa il it is  cut    and brought   to them.    Hungry  $1 Discount  BETTER LIGHT  At LESS EXPENSE from COM.

TREN WITH  THE ELECTRIC SHOP  KELOWNA  cows should be kept off alfalfa pasture when it is wet, and should be  given some hay or green feed other  than alfalfa before going on.  There are various effective cures for  bloating. Pint doses of linseed oil  with a little turpentine added, given  with a wine bottle; tying a wooden  gag in the mouth like a horse's bit;  inserting a piece of rubber hose in the  throat and pushing it gently down  until the gas rushes up Irom the  paunch; have all proved effective cures.  A dose of 300 o.c. at a I per cent, solution of formalin ia also a cheap  remedy. If an animal is on the point  of suffocation when found, the surest  remedy is to stab the paunch Ho let  tho gas out quickly. An ordinary  knife may be used, but a trocar is  hotter, the hollow sheath remaining  in the hole to allow the gaset to escape freely. Tho point to be stabbed  is midway between the last rib, the  hip bono, and the backbone right in  the centre ol the space in front o( the  hip, whieh is quite hollow usually. The  skin is first slit for about an inch,  and tho paunch wall is just beneath,  bold stab is made directly through it.  Tho paunch is an immense receptacle,  nnd there is no dr��Tcr of striking any  other organ at that point. A veterinary should have been sent for in the  meantime.  Regarding the ourini of ��lralla hay.  Over three fourths tho feeding value  is in the leaves, so that ordinary  methods whereby these are wilted off  will not do. Alfalfa should be cut  when only beginning to come into  bloom, before it gets woody. Cut in  the morning and partially wilted, it  should lie cocked in the afternoon, and  cured by standing thus for three or  four days, when it is ready lor hauling or baling. Cured like thit, the  hay is quite green, and is nearly  equal to bran in food value, weight  for weight. Alfalfa meal should bo  quite green a'so, and show no white,  strawy specks, which indicate badly  cured and w0ody hay.  In a wot season alfalfa can be put  into a silo mixed with green corn or  alone, it must be well tramped down  to make good ensilage. A silo Ib  neurly essential for the dairyman on  high priced land. It provides the  cheapest food known. One dairyman  in the Kootenay distriot Jias erected a  silo 8 x 22 on hit five-acre holding,  and keeps four cows on home grown  roughage the year round, betides a  large Hock 0f poultry, bu using siluge  and soiling crops. The silo is filled  with oats and peas in early summer,  und again with com in the fall. Silage and soiling mean intensive dairy  farming. Silage is just as good in  summer as in winter, and nearly as  necessary. Soiling means cutting the  crops in the summer and bringing  them to the cows, instead of letting  them pasture. The only objection is  the extra labor, but that is paid for.  Winter rye, fall wheat and vetch, alfalfa, clover, peas, and oats, kale  and silage will provide an abundance  of succulent food throughout the summer. Half an aore under this system,  if it crops well, will tupply a cow with  sufficient green food lor the summer  seaton. The small holder above mentioned hat brought up his farm from  a "wilderness ol thistles" to producing  twice as much as the adjoining holdings, by means of the large amount oi  manure made on the place.  The provincial department of agricul-  eure will be pleased to send printed  information about alfalfa, silos and  ensilage, on request.

This  space is a provision ol nature so that  the chick which grows, within the  shell may have air to breathe from  the time it comes to life until it becomes strong enough to break through  tho ahell to the outside world.  To generate life in the egg It is necessary that it be subjected to a certain degree of heat for a period of 21  days. When this is not done the egg  remains indefinitely in its raw state.  When it is boiled the pocket ol air  within the shell, which would have  been used up by the chick il the egg  had been set lo hatch, begins to fight  (or its space, and pushes the boiled  contents of the egg back, leaving the  hollow space.

Your New Year's Resolutioe  At this season of the year we instinctively tum back, review the past,  consider our achievements, and wonder why we have not accomplished  more. -  When you see the years rolling by  with no improvement in your conditions you should investigate, carefully  analyze your work, determine what  constitutes its value, why it is not  more productive.  Are you better qualified educationally than yon were a year ago? Can  you demonstrate to an employer that  your services are more valuable than  they were a year ago1'  If you go on month after month,  year after year, without effort to inn-  prove your qualilicutions you will tail,  and deservedly so, and that's as true  as the rising and setting of the sun.  Look this matter squarelv in the face  now. You wilt have to do so some  time.  In twelve months there will be another new year. In these twe.ve  months you can get an education. In  one year from today if you use your  spare time, and only your spare time,  you can have a good working knowledge ol tome profession.  You have wasted enough time in the  past to lit you lor high salaried work  Don't worry about time that has already been wasted. But don't repeat  your mistake.  A new year is dawning, glistening  with possibilities. Hake those possibilities real.   Hake them yours.  Resolve that the approaching year  shall find you industriously employed  improving your mental equipment. Resolve that every spare moment shall  find you engaged in increasing your  knowledge. Do this and in succeeding  years when training and the lapse ol  time have placed you in a respohsrb,e  position, you will look back on 1916  as the turning point in your career.���  Advt.  Id the "Heroes "Cellar  Munition factoriea in the east have  offered to employ every member of t.  Panama Pacific exposition force of 300  guards, according to Captain Edward  Carpenter, of the Coast Artillery Corps |  commanding tho guards. The Weeting-  house Electric Company telegraphed an  offer to employ ail available gUarda at  increased pay. About fifty left a few  days ago for powder plants on the  Pacific coast. I  What was seen irom the "heroes"  cellar, during u raid by French airmen  ia described by a German doctor. "I  was at work in my room on tbe top  floor (A an hotel/' he says, "when I  heard the. sound of firing; which gradually Came nearer and nearer. 1 go  to the window, and at a great height  I oan see an airman hovering amongst  a regular collection of white *arapnel  clouds. Then comes a second and a  third, then a fourth i nd a fifth, ami  presently there is a whole squadron  over the town.  "From down below blares a trump jt  It is the signal for everybody to clear  out of the streets and take 'aviation  cover.' Suoh warnings are uextssaty,  for the wonder of human flight is still  so astonishing that people on the  earth, both soldiers and civilians  would rather, in spite of the dinger,  atop and gaze up at the steel birds.  Tn a twinkling the streets are cleared.  And it was high time, for tJ.itip.dy  there is a rattling of hoofs und pavements. Shrapnel bullets are ooming  down. And now a fearful, horrible  crash, or rather rour like the rQar of  an animal. It is the first bomb. I  begin to think that my room immediately under the roof is not altogether  a suitable place in such circumstance.  On the stairs I meet others of the  same opinion. As we to down the  stairs the beast roars a second time.  The next bomb has fallen.    --  "Then we hear in the voice of command 'Take aviation cover;' so down  into the 'heroes' cellar, which is the  merry name for the shelters pr.;-arranged for Buch festive visits from lhe  enamy. But the racket nnd din outside gets worse and worse. The hideojs  row comes nearer and nearer. Now it  is quite close: Then a fearful bang  and roar. The house and even the  massive cellar arches tremble. Bang!  This time still wilder and nearer.  Through the crann:es of tha cellar  there drifts in from the street something misty. At first one can't tell  whether it is smoke or dust, but as  we breathe it we find it has a horrible smoky taste.  Bang! bang! Worse and worse'  come the roars around us in our  cellar. We think the next minute the  hotel itself will be struck, and then  how are we to get out of our subterranean wigwag? But gradually the  din becomes less. Quickly up and out  in the hope of" still seeing something.  Airship Detectors  Several lystemi have bam developed  during the present war lor detecting  and locating submarines And airships.  Most of these employ icrophones at  the ends of known base line and determine the location by tri angulation.  The principle of these systems was  worked out in a practical way some  time ago by lb. Elias E. Bite, an  electrical engineer ol New York City.  He devised such a system for use by a  ship in locating a log horn in a fog.  In a tense he provided the ship with  mechanical ears, far more sensitive and  accurate than the human ear. These  ears were, really, two megaphones of  suoh receptive sensitiveness that he  could "pick up" the blasts of a fog  hom or u steamship whistle 20 miles  away. These megaphones' reoeivert  were attached to a spreader at long  at the ship was wide. Thia spread was  mounted well upon the foremast where  it could be swung horizontally through  a hall circle. The megaphones were  pivoted at the extremities of tho  spreader and awun,, s.muli* neouBly toward or away from each other by  means of a simple hand lever. The  lever would truce a pointer around a  graduated arc���the graduations giving  readings in miles and fractions thereof. The instant a warning is heard  in either megaphone the operator will  swing the tube until he gets the same  volume ol sound in both receivers, at  the same time the megaphones are  probably at right angles to the tube  and the sound is more or less muffled.  Then the operator moves the lever to  tum the two megaphones inward toward eaoh other. At the point where  the sound is the clearest in them titty  will be in a direct line with the object causing the sound. The exact  distance is indicated on the graduated  arc. Thus with the distance and direc  tion both accurately indicated, it  an easy matter to get the exact spot  where the airship is. Its direction and  rate ol travel may be equally easily  determined by simple mathematical calculations.  A great many systems have been  built on this one of Mr. Biee, varying only in unimportant details.���  North Shore Press.  Yes, there they are over the t ail./ay  sttrtion, which is some distance on*.  Renew for the Record  Noden Artillery  The Paris Matin gives the story ol  the discovery, which Alfred Krupp  has always been credited with, that  ���teel could be used instead of bronze  in tbe manufacture of guns. It appears, according to the French paper,  that in 1830 a Frenchman of the name  of Pierre Ducroqnet, the eon of a soldier who had fought is tht Napoleonic  wart, was considering the possibility  ol improving modern armament, and  when visiting Paris in 1836 he met Alfred Krupp in a cafe in the vicunty  oi tbe Palais Koyal. Krupp at that  time, was a manufacturer of no very  great importance, employing about 60  workmen, and Was travelling in order  to gain more cuttomert. Bucronuet  explained hit ideas t0 him and started  a long oorretpondence with Krupp. In  1841 he wrote "if the bronze guns  have hot sufficient resitting -powers  why not try and make them ol a more  solid material," aad in 1846, "I caa  find nobody here to believe in ma. Jf  I only had the use of a factory to  make my experiment!. I would give  all I possess to arrive at tonal result.'  Krupp, who waa then employing 20X  workmen, replied to Ducroquet offering him, i providing he paid his own expenses, the use ol a portion oi hie factory and, moreover, the help of some  of his workpeople. The Frenchman,  accepted and removed his family to  Altenessen. A year later, having  spent all his money on his experiments, Ducroquet announced to Alfred  Krupp the fact that he had at last  evolved the steel gun, Krupp informed day by day/ by his workmen o' the  progress made by the inventor,' already realized the importance of the  discovery. He claimed from Ducroquet  the payment of a sum of 5,000 mark,  which he owed him and in default  seized upon his invention. Ducroquet  brought an action against him; but  lost his case. He offered his invention  to the French minister ol war, but it  waa refused. In 1847 Krupjp made the  same offer to both the German and  French governments and reoeiv J an  order for 300 field pieces. The reputi-  tion of the firm was made.  King Constantine of Greece hat been  stricken with virulent pleurisy, and his  condition is serious. The King's illness is said to be certainly incurable,  though he may survive for sometime.  8TO0P8M OF OOAL  EaMCLaVnOKB  Coal mining righto si the I  ia "frUjJtj fltttralthiet  to. the Yukon Terrttocjr,  weat Territorial, aad ia ��� portion of  tht Provino. of British Colttttbit, any  be leased ior a toot al ftat/ uaa  years at aa aaaaal natal ol V aa  sens.

TERMS CASH  JAMES L CAMPBELL  TboM Nt. 108  Tbe Work of Aeroplanes  Whan w�� read what tht airmen write)  about their experience! during the present war, we learn that tbe chitl pur-  poae oi tbe moit ol tbeir frights it  not to drop bomht on tne;enemy but  rather to aid their own artillery ia  directing their fin. Tht airman, it  often tent up;at tht order oi the Oommander of a battery, to atoertain  whether tbe gum "��� ovtrihooting the  mark, do not reach, or an too far  to the right or hit. It it imperative  that he be able to communicate hit  information almott inatantaneouily,  and tome very ingenious methods ot  transmitting it to the earth .have been  devised.  Telephone tyitema an good ior anchored balloons, but are out of the  question 'in aeroplanes or Zeppelins.  Wireless telegraphy hat to many difficulties and dangen at to prove quite  impractical.  The French are uting a very ingen-  out method of signalling by meant  of toot clouds. An apparatus filled  with lampblack reele near the hand  of the airman, and when he presses  a, lever tome of thit toot putet down  a pipe and it discharged into the air  in a black cloud. Tbe pipe it to delicately arranged that the clouds may  be email or large. The operator can  tpell 0ut the Hone telegraph code in  the little clouds, and, they can fee read  from tbe earth.  The Germans have adopted what  they consider a far more practical  mode of communication. Prof. Donath  hat invented a system of signal mirrors, lighted by a very strong lamp  whieh permits the airman, to send hit  messages and alto to receive instructions in the day.time at well at at  night. The apparatus it to regulated  that the operator may send a long or  short flatb, thus utilizing the Horse  code or any other code whioh may  have been agreed upon.  lhe light in the little lamp of thit  apparatus hat a Hash of 10,000 candle  power, and while it can he used for  only forty or fifty hours without renewing the burner, thit it enough ior  all practical, purposes, lhe power ior  the light comet from a special seven-  celled battery, weighing only eight  pounds, including the metallic cover.  When a message is to be sent the  operator directs hit telescope over the  reflector to the detired point. Then  be pretrial on a button, tht lamp  lights, flashing long or short, according to the pretture.  The officers oa the earth receive  tlie menage, and may return a reply  in the tame way/ being provided with  similar mirrors and lamps.  By thit method messages can be  flatbed not only at night and in foggy  weather, but alto ia tbe daytime, in  dear weather. The temperature of the  filament in the lamp it to high that it  tends out a ray of light almott at  bright aa lunUght, aad thit it why  the flathet an viaibte even in the  day time. The signals oan bt read  with the naked eye for a distance oi  eight miles and upwardt. With a  field glass tht signal, may be distinguished for a far greater distance.  When it it neoetttry to tend a written communication, such at a plan <>  a fortification as teen irom the aeroplane, the primitive method oi dropping the iheet oi paper tied to a ttone  has long bean abandoned. Tbe airman  it provided with a tptdal bomb in  which ths letter or plan it placed.  He then drop, the bomb, which it  to weighted that it falls tharp end  tint. At the end ttrikes tht ground  a trigger it restated whioh sett fire  to s torch on top, and thui the location of the bomb is indicated by day  or night.  WHO ABB THE TUBK8?  Tht ttattmeat of a Turkish Pasha  that all alien, an to be cleared out of  bit country, and that after the war  .Turkey will bt for the Turki only,  prompts the question: Who an the  Turka? Oi the doaen or to different  raoet, tptaking different languages,  the real Turka (if tbe Otmaniia may  bt to ttyled) form quite a small part  oi the population oi European Turkey.  Ii tbe Patha had hit way, it would  give rite to an interesting social problem, since in tbe eyes of the Sultan,  all Otmaniia are equal. Thus there  an no data barriert to prevent an  Ottoman Turk of humble birth reaoh  ing the Divan, and even marrying into the royal family iteelf. Peasant  and Patha have the tame dignified  bearing, and all alike are oontemptu-  out of the tubjeot raoet they govern���  tent apparently by Allah to do the  dirty work.���London Chronicle.

Indian War Bonnets  War bonnet or headdress 0f the Indian���Its meaning:���The typical Indian  is always shown with a war-bonnet or  war cap, of Eagle's feathers. Everyone is familiar with the look of this  headdress, but it will be found that  few know its meaning, or why. the Indian glories in it so. Tn the days  when the red man was unchanged by  white man's ways, ever,, feather in the  Brave's headdress was awarded to him  by the Grand Council, for some deed,  usually in warfare. These deeds were  called "coups", and when of exceptional valor they were "grand coups"  and the eagle's feather had a .tuft of  horsehair, or down, fattened on its  tip. Not only wBs each feather bet-  towed for tome exploit, but there were  alto waya of making the feathers to  aa to show the kind of deed, lhe  Grand Council, & committee of the old  wise men of the Indian village, had all  authority in the wording of these  coups, tho man uho wat applying for  a coup, came forvaid, told his story,  finished by claiming a coup or grand  coup as he thought fit; ii the Cou'tcil  agreed, there was a loud chorus of  "How! How! How!" if then *at any  doubt oi it, tbe matter wat ftirly ami  squarely threshed out, and the coup  or grand coup awarded or withheld  jutt as the Grand Council thought lit.  No Indian would ever think oi claiming a coup ii he did not think in lib  own mind that he had won it. The  killing of an enemy might confer feathers on four different men���the first,  second and third to strike liiin, and  tho one who took his soalp.  B. KELLER, T.L.

Loyalty to our country is good, but loyalty to  our town and our neighbors is just as important,  although rarer. To send money out of town for  things that may be obtained from townsmen and  neighbors is not loyal, and does a serious injury  to our schools, churches, and other institutions  supported by local taxation or philanthropy.  Support good roads, good churches and good  schools. Spend your money st home. You will  get just as good or better value, and can see what  you buy before you pay for it, instead of after.

Suppose We Had to  Keep Them!  Suppose, for instance, we had to resolve to  cast off the depression of spirits and paralysis  of effort which have been induced by the hard  times, and make up our minds that the end  of 1916 was going to see us out of the  hole and going strong again!

Box 397  2-9pI  BOOKKEEPING.  The establishment of the Soldiers'  .Vid Commission for Ontario, of whioh  the secretary is Mr. C. N. Cochrane,  Parliament Bldg., Toronto, is the first  of the report reOgntly issued by the  Hospitals Commission, and the forerunner of others.  The care of the soldier who has re-  Lurned t0 Canada, mutilated or weuk-  'nixl as a result of active service, is  Lhe primo duty of Canadians. For seine  months the Canadian Patriotic "''und  has been endeavoring to ensure that  i ho men already back from Europe  should suffer no want. This work has  been voluntarily undertaken by local  committees ol the Fund, although in  most instances their time is fully occupied with the task of making provision for the families of soldiers.  Eaoh soldier is interviewed nt .Juo-  liec by by a representative of thfl  Fund and a confidential report sent  by the latter to the patriotic committee of the town to which the sol-  dler is goin^j. This serves the two-  fo'd purpose of protecting the l^und  agaimt the greedy or unscrupulius  and nf giving the local committee information that is helpful in finding  employment for the deserving. Not  every man who returns to Canada  wearing His Majesty's uniform is included in the later category, but the  great ma'ority havo done their duty  n th,> fullest degree. To the latter it  has been tho privilege of tho Fund  to present a small badge bearing the \  words, "For Bervioe at tho Front.'*  The men who are wearing these badges are tho worthiest citizens that we  can acknowledge. Like charity, that  badge should be allowed to cover a  multitude of sins.  The work that the Canadian Patriotic Fund can do for returned soldiers,  however, is limited by Act of Parliament, and it has been specifically enacted that no assistance can be given  by the Fund to "any person who is  in receipt of any gratuity, pension or  allowance paid by His Majesty or by  any foreign go.ernment in consequence  ol incapacity or dea h occurrng as  aforesaid." PPartly on this account  und largely because the pensions end  gratuities paid to incapacitated men  aro oft-times admittedly inadequate,  it has been necessary to establish a  Hospitals Commission and Disablement  Fund. The oflicialB of the latter, in  thoir report to the Federal government, recommended among other measures, that provincial commissions be  formed for the purpose of supplementing these pensions either by monetdry  grants ar by- free training in various  trades. The Soldiers' Aid Commission of Ontario, as we have said before, is tho first step in this direction.  Already it has announced its intention  of mobilizing the manufacturers of  Ontario and we do not doubt that  the process will be facilitated by the  manufacturers thomtijves. Others also  will be asked to lend their- aid in dit*  charging a great national duty and  there ii every prospect that in Can  ada ut least the traditional tragedy  of the returned soldier will have no  place.

Blackwood, DatMsbtr 30, 1015.      ���.%  Since tho Victoria Cross Wat instituted by Queen * ictorlg at the end of  the Crimean war, the making of the  medals has been entrusted to the  same firm, Handcocks & Co., of New  Boj 1 Street, London. The nanulac-  ture'of the famous cross differs a good  deal from that of other medals.  "Tho ordinary medal is made from  a steel die, being stamped and completed in tht taint process,.' Mr. Don,  tho senior partner, told a press representative, "but the metal from which  the Victoria Crosses are made it to  hard that no die would ttand it without breaking. It is well known that  the first crosses were made from captured Russian gun., but now the ms  terials from guns taken from tht Chi  neto. With an order for tho cross is  sent a supply' of the metal.  "First a rough oast of the crott is  made and this hat to be filed, drilled  and chased. Tht ohasing, occupies  tho attention of a skilled artisan for  many hourt. The* bar it a teparate  catting, and is alio chased.  "The authorities are molt Oareiul  to sco that none of tbe metal ia  wasted. It is most carefully served  out to us, and if any is left over from  one lot of crosses it is used up before  a fresh supply can be obtained."  Although tho intrinsic valu0 of tho  cross is small, collectors at tab's have  often given 2500 to secure an engraved specimen.  Dr. MATHISON  Dentiit  KELOWNA   ::   B.C.
