 VOL. VII.   NO. 38.  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, AUGUST 12, 1915.���6 PACES  Prize Lists Ready  For the Fall Fair  Appeal for Support Addressed  to Local Farmers  $1.50 Per Annum  Important Changes Made in  The nsw prize lists for the Agricultural and Horticultural exhibition to  be held September 27th to 39th are  now printed, and oan be obtained at  the Farmers' Institute room.  _ As with so many institutions and  businesses at the present time, the  subject ot | finance is a derioato one  with the direotors of the exhibition,  and it is a sore point with every one  connected with' the running; oi the  fair that the association has been unable to meet all its obligations during  the past two years. No doubt the optimism prevailing the past two or  three years encouraged an expenditure  in buildings at the show grounds,  whioh in the light of present conditions would seem to have been at  least unwise, but in , undertaking the  responsibilities they did the direotors  were undoubtedly aotuated by the best  of motives, although joined perhaps  with too great a faith in the immediate future of the distriot. Notwithstanding present conditions, the direotors are confident that they are doing  the right thing in going on with the  fair this year, and it is hoped that in  spite of delay in obtaining prize money -won at the last fairs, all ranchers  and the community generally in the  distriot will realize the great encouragement and stimulus to good agrioulture a successful exhibition should be  , in a distriot of this kind, and that  every one will do his or her part to  make the fair this year a oredit to  Kelowna.  In sending copieB of the prize list  out to prospective exhibitors, the secretary is forwarding tho following  letter:  Dear Sir.���In sending .you the enclosed prize list for the exhibition to be  hold nuM muniU, I rt'SDjsasfully ��ulK��4_ p..  on behalf "oTIne" association, your oor- "*"  dial assistance and oooperatidn In making the exhibit on a success this year  ���suoh a success and stimulus to successful agriculture as an agricultural  and horticultural show ahould be in a  district so favored as is our district,  from a growers standpoint.       , ,  During the past two years, unfortunately, the association has been unable  to pay all prise money won by exhibitors, this state ot affairs being mainly  due to the large sums expended on  buildings and ground improvements.  In asking your co-operation and entries this year, the directors would  like it understood that it will probably again be neoessary to hold over  payment ol portions of the prize  money. They sincerely hope that this  will not'cause you to refrain ��� from  supporting the exhibition by entering  as many exhibits as possible. AU  prize monoy won will, as in the past,  be credited to the successful exhibitors  and pending actual payment the winners* possess an interest to the extent  of their unpaid prizes in the valuable  assets of the association. In this connection, a proposal will be made at  the neat annual meeting to have something in the shape of share certificates  or coupons issued for any prize monoy  then unpaid.  Everything possible wall be done by  economy of management and by increasing revenue (rom the publio in  every desirable way, to place the association in suoh a position that ail  outstanding obligations may be set  tied * as early as possible. All speoial  prizes will, of oourse, be paid over to  prize winners, aad as muoh as possible  of the ordinary prise money, shortly  after the olose of the exhibition.  The special prize offered by Mr. J.L.  Pridham for the best three females in  rattle exhibition by one owner, will  be a silver rap, instead ol a medal as  stated in the prize list. A speoial  prize of 15.00 will be given by Mr. B.  K. Bailey, tied a second prize of USO  For the sample of oows milk riohoet in  butter fat. Details of this competition and other speoial prizes will be  announced later.  Your* very truly,  P. B. SNASHALL, Seoy.  ' Some very, radioal changes have just  been mad* by the militia oounoil and  the government at Ottawa and many  important restrictions whioh have hith  erto prevented men irom joining l no  forees have been removed. For instance  a wife will no longer be able to stop  her husband from'enlisting by objecting, nor will parents be able to prevent minors from joining. Up to- the  present too it has been possible for a  man even after enlisting to regain his  freedom upon payment of H5. This  privilege is to be removed.  In the past, the department has linen  bombarded with protests irom the  wives of men who had joined and these  protests had to be recognized. As a  result of suoh protests it is estimated  that several hundred men who mobilized at Valcartier were sent home. The  provision was also subject to many  abuses and in a considerable number  of oases mefi used thoir wives as a  shelter behind whom to excuse Itheir  own desire to leave after having enlisted. In other cases many have excused theiv failure to enlist by tho remark that their wives -would not allow them lo go and that it was useless to enlist as their wives would immediately thereafter protest to the  authorities ..and procure their. dis-  oharge.  Under the new regulation men who  were formerly discharged owing to the  protests of their better halves will  now if they so desire be able to offer  themselves again. In the past, n  minor between 18 and 21 'required tha  consent of hiB parents before he could  enlist, and if a protest oame from  them after he had enlisted, his dis.  oharge would be granted. In future il  a man is of military age, IS to 38.  none oan interfere with his joining thn  colors. In the past, a man who had  enlisted could, with the consent of his  commanding officer, purchase his discharge for the sum of S15.

Though  in some measure conditions necessitated a outting down somewhat ol  the scope of this annual gala, those of  the crowds who attended, both local  residents and visitors from up and  down the lake will have no Hesitation  in declaring that this curtailment interfered in no way with the quality of  the program.  Everything went well from the band  conoert and confetti carnival on Wednesday evening, to the. prize giving  and dance in the pavilion following  the regatta Thursday. The attendance perhaps was not quite up to the  past year or two, but that was not  to be expected. The turnout was a  good one, the number of visitors in  uniform from the Vernon Camp being  especially noticeable. A. speoial excursion per the S. S.

The work which the men will perform at the front will be all of an engineering character, such as trench  building, road-making and railway  construction, field defences and sap-  ~ping. It will all be work for which a  battalion recruited io western Canada  from the ranks of the railway construction workers will be enabled to  render exceptional service.  Major James A. Macdonnell has been  appointed second in command and  will commence recruiting at once in  British Columbia. Major Mitchell, or  "Big Jim" as he is familiarly known,  is a well known railroad engineer and  contractor and a popular personality  among railroad construction workers.  It is expected that enlistment in this  battalion will prove especially attractive to axe men, railroad men, miners,  traok men and skilled t.rtizans.

This decision was arrived at as  a result of last winter's campaign in  Flanders, when it Was found that the  cloth puttee was little or no protection against the mud and water, and  led to .the men suffering, not only  from frost bites, but from benumbed  feet and legs.

Uecent developments connected with  tho visit of Sir Robert Borden to the  old country have also mado it evident  that after the war there will lie almost a complete change In the dominion's position in the Empire and  that its statesmen will lie called into  Imperial councils. Altogether the two  years succeeding the declaration ol  peace will bo a period of financial, sociological and indistrial reorganization, and, as such, will not be a timo  lor a general election, if a general  .election as disturbing an influence to  tho country ns is generally undorl  stood. Whatever action is taken, the  next session of parliament will decide  tho issue.  The revival of political speculation  as a result of the Manitoba provincial  elections, says the Ottawa Citizen is  drawing general attention to the fact  that in a short time tho present parliament will enter upon its last session. It has already held five and  will hold a sixth. It will be tho last  unless there is extension ol the usual  parliamentary term, as has been suggested by those who oppoBo the holding oi a general election before the end  of the war.

If ho furnishes  cream of good quality he makes possible the manufacture of good butter,  I which will command tho highest price  ion the market. If ho supplies rroora  of inferior quality, a low grade butter  | ia bound to be made from it, which  meant* small returns for tho product.  The dairy farmer is the controlling  power which determinB t he lesuiiy  of th�� dairy industry. Tho care he  gives the cream on tho farm determines  the financial roturnB from tho butter  and in turn, the returns from the butter determine tho prosperity of tho  dairy farmer, because the price tho  creamery pays for butter-fat is necessarily largely regulated by the frice  the butter brings on tho markot.  Lack of proper cure of milk and  cream on the farm and thc resulting  poor quality of cream, therefore, will  augment the depression of the butter  market and stimulate the sale of foreign butter and butter substiti tes,  and small returns to the farmer. Theso  unsatisfactory conditions can be ovor-  comos by proper attention to the^uni  ity of the cream on the farm.���Prntrio  Farm and TTome.

As for plums, the total yield in Hrit-  isb Columbia has been placed at I'liuul  90 per cent, of Inst year, tno fruit being reported as of good quality.

On Vancouver island, all vnrietios are showing up well, and orchards are being  generally well cultivated. Tho crop  of tho iowcr mn'nland and coast districts is cleaner than usual. That of  the Okanagan valley is estimated at  85 por cent. iA 1914. Tho Kolowna  district will have 90 per cent, of last  year, with a lighter average (about  70 per cent.) on old trees.

FOREST FIRES  Reports to tho Minister ol Lands  from tho forest districts show that  attnough many fires have neon-red,  thoy havo been mainly confined to the  slashings, with attendant .Uiiu.i'e to  logging camps in a low cases.  The occasional rains during the  month ol July, whet the tall was  above the average, reduced the fire  hazard so far as tho standing timber  was conoernod, but the Intervening  spells of hot weather quickly dried  up those    areas covered with     slash  highly inflamable condition. As the  vegetation ripens and drieB oiit< the  fire hazard wi'INt-rlaitily increase, unless kopt in check by frequent ' rains.  Every effort Bhould be made by campers, settlers, logging employees, and  those whose work or pleasure brings  thorn into close proximity to the  woods, to observe the utmost precaution during Ihe month of August and  tho rest of thc dry season.'

We guarantee, however, that there will  be no reduction in these prices prior to August 1st, 1916  Profit Sharing with Retail Buyers  On August lit, 1914, we made the announcement that if ��*e could  make and sell at retail 30,000 Ford cara between August I, 1914, and  August I, 1915, we would share profits with the. retail purchasers.  We have sold only 18,774 Ford cara in the time specified and, therefore, are unable to share our profits with those who purchased Ford  cara between the above dates.  Our plan to profit-share with retail purchasers of Ford cars during  1914-1915 waa not successful due to conditions which we could not  possibly foresee at the time we made our announcement last August.  The war and the consequent unsettled conditions of business seriously  affected our sales and increased our manufacturing costs so that  during the last year we did not earn a profit not required for the normal  expansion of our business both in a manufacturing and service way.  However we still have confidence in our profit-sharing plan, but a realization of the  uncertainty of conditions generally makes it advisable to defer any announcement of  future profit-sharing until a later dste.  We are, however, positive we cannot reduce costs for several months, and therefore  can of er no profit-sharing- for cars delivered during August, September and October, 1915  Ford Motor Company  OF CANADA.

Burtch  Phone 160 THBBSBAT, AUGUST 19, 1M6  KSWWNA  RECORD  Tbe Nicaragua Canof  Is the Nicaragua oanal any nearer  its realization today thnn when it was  one of the proposed routes.between the  Atlant.o and Pacific oceans, previous  to the selection of tbe isthmus of  Panama by the' United States government?  There are those in the Nioaraguan  capital who believe that before 'very  long the increased traffio through the  Panama canal will make the building  of another waterway essential, and  that in suoh a oase, Nicaragua's hope  will be brought again. The delay of  the United States Senate in taking aotion in the loan issue, has perhaps,  had the effect of dampening the hopes  somewhat, but the expectation, nevertheless is that something advantageous to this Oentral American republic mav happen before long.  The advocates oi a Nioaraguan canal point to the facilities for such construction along what is called 'the  Greytown Brito route. The total dis-  tanoe from port to port would be 170  miles. Greytown, also balled San Juan  del Norte, is on the Atlantio coast,  and Brito on the Pacific Lake Nicara  gua, necessarily the summit level of  the'oanal, will be connected*witii the  Pacific ocean by two sections of canal  in excavation, and by the Tola basin,  and with the Atlantic by slack-water  navigation through the valleys of tbe  San Francisoo and Deseado, connected  by short sections of oanal. The sea  level1 on eaoh side would be reaohed by  three locks, whioh have been looatsd  as near as possible, to tho extremities  of the oanal, namely 2J miles from  Brito, and 12$ miles from Greytown,  thereby giving a clear summit level of  154 miles in extent out of the total  length of 170 miles.  Lake Nioaragua, over 105 miles in  length, with an average of somo 40  miles in width, is the controlling feature ot the whole canal problem and  one. of the principal faotors making for  its success. It has a watershed of  about 8,000 square miles, of which its  water area is nearly one half, and on  acoount of its large space,' restricted  catchment basin, and ample outlet, is  not subject to either sudden or great  fluctuation in level. Both the lake and  the San Juan river are, therefore, free  from floods, a most important feature  distinguishing this route from all others at any time considered, . say engineer experts   who have studied   the  canal question in all its particulars.  The average yearly rise and fall, due  to wet and dry seasons, is about .five  feet, its highest water-mark being 110  feet above the sea, the elevation  sumed for the highest level.  A direct sailing line between the outlet at (he Fort Gmrlos, on the eastern  shore, and the mouth of the river Ja-  jas on the west,' a distance of 5tH  miles, comprises the lake navigation  proper, and here the 30 feet coueour  is met with about 14 miles from the  outlet, and 1,200 feet from the western shore. Between these points the1  depth gradually increases to 100 feet  or more, the free navigable portii  comprising the greater part of  lake area. Dredging in mud to an  average depth of 9 feet will be required for the 14 miles on tho east, and  rock-blasting and dredging in the 1200  feet near the west shore. Ths eastern side of the lake1 being sheltered'  from the prevailing northeast winds,  no provision is needed there to protect the channel, The western shore  is exposed to the prevailing wind and  waves, and the canst entrance there  must be protected by two piers, projecting to deep water in the lake, to  be made of crib, .for whloh the native  hard- wood .is well suited, filled   with  stones from the excavations.  . Ill regard to the eastern section oi  trhe proposed canal, the San Juan river which takes its souroe at the south  eastern extremity of the lake, occupies  an important position in the entire  plan. The river flows some 110 mites  through a broad valley, almost due  east, to its mouth south'of tJreyeown.  Its minimum flow is 12,000 oubio feet  per second, tho width averaging from  800 to 2000 feet and the average fall  being 11 inches per mile.  From the lake eastward the San  Juan river would* be made navigable  for a distance of 64.5 miles by the  oreotion of a dam at Ochoa, and by  dredging for the first 26 miles below  the lake, rock blasting also being  needed for a short distanoe at Toro  Rapids. .  As for the western seotion of the  canal, while the isthmus- separating  the lako from the Pacifio ia, at its  narrowest point not more than 12'  miles in width, the most economical  route connecting the lake shore with  Brito or the Pacific haB a length of  17.04 miles. This section would start  from the mouth of the Lajas, a small  stream draining a limited watershed  to the south of the line, and trending  southwesterly through a broad valley  slightly raised towards tbe "Divine,  which, jt reaches at is distanoe of 4.70  mike from the laics.  Two locks would be placed at the  western end of the canal, according  to the plan considered The water will  be lowered 85 feet, front 110 feet above  sea level, to 25 feet, and from this the  - anal route traverses the valley ot  Brito, a distance ol 15.8 miles to  Lock No. 0, where the last descent is  made with a fall of 2f foot to sea  level. From this last lock to the harbor there would be about a mile of  canal but the seotion would be  so enlarged as to make that portion ol the water-way ah extension of  the harbor itself.  A college professor who was always  ready for a joke was asked by a student one day if he would like a good  recipe for oatehing rabbits. "Why,  yes," replied the professor. "What is  it?" "Well, you orouoh down behind a  thick stone wall and make a noise  like a turnip." "That may be" said  the professor, with a twinkle in his  eye, "but a better way than ' that  would be for you to go and sit quiet  lv in a bed of cabbage heads and look  natural."

A break in the skin, such aa a  scratch; pimple, or sore will permit it  to enter the blood and cause a severe  sore or even blood poisoning. When  paris green is used in the dry form,  be careful to get it only on the plant  for which it is intended. Consider the  direction of the wind when doing this  kind of work.. ���>  In spraying with Paris green of Bordeaux mixture it is advisable to protect the fa*) \ veii or false tass is  often used ior this purpose.  v In spraying with lime-sulphur rubber  gloves should be used. This solution  is very corrosive and may oause very  painful sores on the fingers where ex.  posed for some length of time. It  takes over two months for these sores  to heal. Vessels that have been used  to contain these poisons should not  again be used for anything'else.

The great struggle in which  many Canadians have already laid  down their fives is also calling for  great financial sacrifices. It is costing Canada in fact, (300,000 a day.  Figuring this out even'more finely  it will be apparent that Canadians  are going'down into their pockets to  pay the expenses of the pretent  atruggle at the rate of nearly 119,000  an hour, or about $1*26 a minute. And  the statistician who caret to reduce  his calculations to the ultimate unit  will discover, of oourse, that the  Canadian financial war clock is ticking at the rate ol about *4 per second.        <  The total    war expenditure up    to  July 31, or practically twelve montha  after war was declared on August 4th  last year, was 181,760,000. Adding to  this the expenditure since that     date  Certain   of the   holder* of Enderby it will be seen, a* stated, that so far  oity bonds an    urging the council to Canadians have paid the beat part of  make taxes payable in four quarterly 100,000,000 for their conviction*.   The  instalment*. ratio of expense of course is going on  all the time as the Dominion placet  more and more troops m the fletd. Almost the whole expenditure ft milM-  tary in character. Canada'* navy,  especially now that German cruiser*  have been driven from the esa, i*  costing her comparatively little. The  items are in the equipment and upkeep of the men at home, in England  and at the front. The pay of tbe  troops alone cost little less than  1100,000 per day.  Of tb,. 190,000,000 which constitutes the total expense ,of the war to  far. 150,000,000 wa* voted at thc speoial August session ol parliament hut  year, and $40,000,000 come* out of  the war appropriation of 1100,000,000  made at the laat session and which  is being borrowed in England.  Besides providing ��V>r the direct war  expenditures, the minister of finance  had to increaae the revenue* whioh  were falling as a result of the war,  and for that purpose imposed extra  tariff,and direct taxation.  That thi* will be sufficient to take  care of the financial situation until  next session is now being demonstrated, customs revenues during the  past few months having been largely  increased.  According to the Montreal  Journal of Commerce, War  orders amounting.to the sum  of $425,000,000 have been  placed in Canada prior to  June 1 st. Such orders are daily increasing and are limited only by the  capacity of our factories which are daily increasing their output. From  present indications the Prairie Crops will net the farmers of these provinces the enormous total of $300,000,000. The beneficial effect of this  will be felt in British Columbia.
