Array VOLVUI.   NO. 25.  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY. MAY II, 1916���6 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  Fire Brigade Give  Splendid Concert  Which is Attended and Enjoyed by Large Crowd  By Jovel It certainly was a concert  dontoherknow! When the Fire Brigade  tackle anything, from a house on fire  to a musical evening, they do not fail  to make things go. The boys had  been preparing for last Friday's event  for some timeAin the hope of gathering enough cash to start a fund to  meet the various expenses incidental  to their little athletic and other activities, and they were not disappointed. The Opera House was. well tilled  with an. audience who were fully appro  ciative of the excellent programme  provided. All were local artistes who  had given their services to help the  Brigade. -  The stage was appropriately decorated with patriotio ensigns and palms,  with cups*'and shields and other handsome trophies won by the i boys in the  past in their various athletic conquests, and with hose and brightly  polished items of fire-fighterB' equipment, while in the foreground was a  framed "Roll of Honor" containing a  list of the 27 men who have joined  some' branch of the military forces.  There was sufficient variety about  the programme to please everybody,  and everybody was pleased-^no doubt  about it.'  Fireman Browne, otherwise Mr. .1.  W. B. Browne, started the ball rolling  with "Till the sands of the desert  grow cold," which was well sung and  loudly applauded. Mrs. J. M. Harvey oame next "When we're together."  Mr. D. McGuire contributed some coon  BongBwhich were undoubtedly popular  and very cleverly done, though despite  his shining black fstee one could still  detect traces of the "Emerald IbIo"  about him. Mr. Drury Pryce'B violin  solos have lost none of their charm  for Kelowna audiences, and he was  repeatedly recalled. Miss F. A. Pearson is another local artiste who never  fails- to please, and her songs were  well received.- Mr. Grant Ferrier also  sang well, while Mr. G. o. McKen/.ie  infused the patriotic spirit with his  "Veteran's Song" and the "Best Old  Flag." Perhaps the most popular  Hem was tbe duet by;Mr. Browne  and Mr. Leo. Hayes,"By Jove!" Mr.  Eric Dart, who possesses no mean  powers as a reciter told of the "lure of  the North" from Robert "Service's ballads. Mr. J. R. Beale also showed  considerable talent in 'his recital of an  episode from one of Gilbert's poems,  while Mr. Browne gave Kipling's  "Gunga Dingh" and "Gentleman Run-  kern." Mr. H. Tod Boyd accompanied, and an excellent concert concluded  by the whole Fire Brigade lining up  on tho stage and singing the national  anthem.  Kelowna Volunteer Reserve  At the weekly parade of the Kelowna Volunteer Reserve last Monday,  it was decided that in future the drills  would be divided into two parts, from  7.30 to 8.30, and from 8.30 to 0.30  every Monday evening. This will enable members to attend either or both  drills at their convenience. To properly perform Company or Platoon  drill it ib absolutely necessary that all  members should attend without fail.  The Wednesday N. C. 0. Class was  posponed owing to the Patriotio concert.  With the ohange in the drill hours,  the executive sincerely hopes that all  members will take advantage of the  opportunity to prepare themselves for  active service, and show the men  the trenches that their oomrades at  home are not spending their sparo  time in lying around the house or attending some frivolous amusement. In  other words, the -K. V. R. wgs ot all  men worthy of the name to relinquish  everything for the only game a Briton  should think of just now���Hie WAR  GAME.  Farmers Look Out lor  Contaminated Cream  The attention of farmers is called to  the fact that at the present time more  than usual care must be taken to safeguard milk and cream from contamination. During, the pmit month or  two with the emptying of root cellars  ai.il pits, etc., quantities of decaying'  vegetables, roots and onions have bean  dumped around in convenient or inconvenient corners, and now that- the  cows are out on pasture again they '  are likely to make free with some of  these unsavory dumps, with disastrous  consequences to the flavor.' of the  cream and butter. Onions especially  are very bad for imparting their powerful odor. Milk or cream stored even  for a few minutes near any material  of this kind soon becomes contaminate  ed.

A meeting of the Board of Trade  was called last Friday evening to discuss the question of altering tho room  to suit the requirements of the Farmers' Institute who propose renting it.

The chairman explained that the  the committee in arranging for tho  musicale, had made a special effort to  get the services of Bishop Doull as a  speaker in order to help on the local  fund. He referred also to the presence on the platform of the Rev.  Father Verbeke, who was a representative of one of the countries which  had suffered so much ih tho present  war, and had lived for a number of  years in some of tho cities which had  been devastated in Belgium.

"During the month of March 25 families with 83 dependents were in receipt of assistance from the Canadian  Patriotic Fund., the amount disbursed  in this manner being 8604.  In April additional applications from  35 families with Hi) dopondents  were  $44,65; being the proceeds of tho art  exhibition given by the pupils of the  Kelowna Public School. This shows  that we havo only a regular monthly  subscri, ion list of 8137, or one-ninth  of the requisite amount to meet the  claims on tho Kelowna branch."

Potato Industry  Rests With the Farmers  By R. M. WINSLOW  It rests entirely with tho growers to der "Disinfeoting."  make the potato industry of British I 5. When cutting, slice off the stem  Columbia tho best in Canada, and to end first, cutting about half an inch  developt- marketB that shall be strong from tho end. If any brownish or  enough to pay the growers a price j blackish spots are visible in the flesh,  that will give them a reasonable and  legitimate profit for thoir labors. Up  to date several hundred cars of the  1915 crop have ben shipped out of the  country. Reports as to the quality  in general, have been favorable,  though a number of adverse reports  have been received as to diseased and  poorly-graded stock. The success of  the potato industry depends to a very  great extent' on an export trade to  look after the surplus and a proper  distribution in the local markets. Wo  are asking each and every grower of  potatoes to cooperate in this work,  in order that this industry may be  placed on a substancinl and profitable  basis We submit for your consideration the following suggestions, which,  if followed, Bhould prove profitable to  you.  WHAT THE MARKET WANTS \S  MAIN CROP POTATOES  The Coast and United States markets call tot a white potato, therefore  you should grow a whito potato on  your commercial plot. We must  gr��w what tho market requires in order to get tho best prices. Local  markets want a long white shallow-  eyed potato of fine grain, such as we  find in the varieties of "Burbank,"  "Money-maker," "Netted Gem" (irrigated districts'/, "Up-to-date," etc.  The Ontario market is strong on tho  "Irish Cobler" and other varieties of  that type, while tho'middle west provinces -will tako almost any riinllow-  eyed white varioty.  In deciding on the -v.riely to B'*iW,  the growers of each district should  chooso tho varioty best suited Lo that  particular district, and farther prottlrl  co-operate in tho growing of this variety in order to Bhip out straight rtVd  of ono variety. Cooperation vhouhl  oxtond alflo to marketing.  ;  SEED FOR 1P10  For   tho present year these -Tiles, if  followed will assiH very much towards  a fine marketable crop:���  1. Secure stock of-the one or two  best varieties for your distriot aud  forrthejnarket.  2. Select tubers of medium -i?-o (not  small ones), smooth and of uniform  shape.  3. Discard all tubers showhg any  sign of disease.  (Read tho section on diseases following, and get Bulletin No. 68 from the  Dopt. of Agriculture, Victoria, ,ind the  Farmers' Circular No. 4, Dept. of Agriculture, Ottawa, about potato diseases),  4. Disinfect the tubers before cutting  them, using the methods described un-1  liscurd the potato.  6. Plant only pure, clean, healthy  <eed.  7.-  Plant  on clean land if possible.  8. On diseased land or wet land,  whole seed is preferable to cut seed.  Non-picker" planters do not injure the seed; ''picker" planters ' e i ik  the skin and so permit the introJ-ic-  tion of disease. v  SEED FOR SEED PLOT  Whilst every -ruler must realize the  importance of using g'ood seed, and  probably has given some attention to  this matter in the past, we believe he  would be overwhelmingly repaid if ho  would give special care to the selection  treatment, and caro, of his potatoes,  and wesuggest that a start be mado  this spring and the,following rules observed:���  1. Plant your seed plot separate  from your commercial plot.  2. Choose n piece or land that has  not grown potatoes in recent yearB,  and clean.of potato disease. It should  bo about one-tenth the size, you intend  to plant the following year.  4, During tho growing season you  should watch your stocks closely and  null out nil that are not true to typo  of variety planted. When plants aro  in bloom is tho best Umo Xo do this.  DISEASES  Mr. .1. W. Eastham, R.Sc., pathologist and entomologist, says: "No crop  is moro monncod with a greater variety of diseases than the potato. These  cause groat direct loss in reduced yield  and quality.. Not only so but agri-  ultural communities tho world over  nro awakening to the danger of introducing these diseases., and nre making  stringent regulations against them.  If, therefore, our export trade is to  dovelope, it is essential that we grow  potatoes whioh oan be given a clean  bill of health.  "Nine-tenths of the serious disease  in the potato crop is planted with the  soed. Unfortunately, also, once put  into the soil, the germs of such diseases remain for a long time, and the  soil itself may be truly said to bo diseased. Given olean seed and clean  land, a clean crop will usually result.  Given diseased sfed, thn crop will not  only lie dis'Nised. but tho soil infected  for tho future. Uso every caro, therefore, in selecting your seed.  "Tuber diseases may be considered in  two types, external and internal.  EXTERNAL DISEASES,  "Powdery    Soab.    This is a disease  (OmtlwM* on Put M  of a sergeant in receipt of assistance  from the Fund to have a total monthly income exceeding $85, including the  soldior's assigned pay and the government separation allowance. The  maximum for the family of a private  was 875 por month. The conditions  under which a family would be entitled  to, tho maximum allowance are so unusual that/it is doubtful whether there  are many fomilies in receipt of same.  At present the Kelowna grants average 820.30 tto each family, or 86.03 to  each dependent. They range from 835  to 86 per month.  The mode of procedure governing the  granting of assistance was as follows:  Upon receipt of the dependent's application, thp secretary of the local  branch makes a copy of same, and  from the information contained therein prepares an estimate of the allowance to which the dependent is entitled, using for his guidance the regulations! and scale of subststance for  this district wns fixed by ithe General  Committee of the Fund at Ottawa.  The application and estimate is then  submitted to the local Relief Committee and when approved is forwarded  to the Provincial branoh for final approval. The Provincial branch then  forwards monthly to the local secretary a separate cheque for each family  These 'cheques are then handed to the  soldiers' wives, who sign a receipt for  them. In estimating the amount of  the monthly allowance, the assigned  pay of the soldier is not taken into  account as revenue, it having been decided by the central committee of the  Fund thnt this should go towards  liquidating any indebtedness a soldi'  may have incurred prior to onlisting,  towards making the home comfortable  and clothing the children, and in  day of the soldior's return.  All subscriptions would be acknowledged through tho local press every  six months, giving the names of all  ubscriberB, and the total amount of  their subscriptions to the end of that  period.  During the interval in the concert,  the Mayor called upon the Bishop,  who received a very hearty reception.  His Lordship esteemed it a great  privilege in placing before them the*  claims of the Canadian Patriotic ^.uud  than which he_did not know any fund  which had a greater claim upon the  people.  The first thing that he wanted to  impress upon his hoarors was that  thoy were at war..

They were not primarily at war for themselves, but were  fighting the battle of Bmall nations  like Belgium .and Serbia.  , Secondly,, they were fighting for  themselves. Our Empire was fighting  for its exiseenco, and we knew we were  After an illness of a little over twenty four hours duration, the death took  place last Friday evening of Mr.  Richard Storey, one of Kelowna's  woll-known and highly-respected citizens, and a familiar figure in the city  for the past ten years.     Mr.   Storey,  ho had reached the advanced age of  72 years, had the misfortune to take  sudden chill last Wednesday, _ which  rapidly developed into pneumonia, and  in spite of every medical attention, he  succumbed Friday evening shortly after nine o'clock.  The news of Mr. Storey's sudden  death was a great shock to everybody  nnd the greatest sympathy .vas expressed for the bereaved 'udriy. The .  funeral, which took place ^Sunday  afternoon, was attended bv a largo  number of friends.  The decejased gentleman was born in  London, England, in 18t4, nnd it was  not until 18S2 that ho emigrated i*  Canada, there to take up farming at  CouHervale, Man. During ais twenty  four years residence in that place he  not only achieved success as an ftgrl-  cult urisl, but he d d a great deal of  useful public service as a member of  the city council, school board, and  1906 he moved to British Columbia,  seeking rest from the rigors of the  prairie winter, and after a short stay  of a few months at the coast, he eventually settled in Kelowna, still, however, retaining his farm in Manitoba,  which he was wont to visit at' times.  Mr. Storey never lost his keen interest in overthing pertaining to .agriculture, ond was a faithful attonder at  all meetings where the farmer was  concerned.  He is survived by a wife and family,  of  five daughters,  only one of whom  is now resident in Kelowna.

If Germany  were to win in the struggle, which  was by no means over, we could say  good-bye to the Canada we were in,  and to the rights and privileges we  enjoyed as the free subjects of the  freest form of government known to  thc nations of this earth.  In the third plane we were figh,:  this battle on behalf of something that  was even of greater importance than  the , rights of nationalitie o live, o  that Canada should remain an integral part of the British Empire.

The very  least the}- could do wus to see that  tho wives and the children of the soldiers were properly cared for and supported while they are away guarding  our homes and possesions. i  The Bishop referred to a criticism  that sonic of the wives and families of  soldiers were receiving more now than  thoy did defore the bread winner enlisted, and scathingly rebuked those  who made such criticism. The Canadian Patriotic Fund, he pointed out,  was one of tho l>est funds that had  ever boon instituted and was mannircd  by thi> very best men in tho Dominion-  Out of every dollar paid in, ninty-  nine nnd three-eighthB cents went to  the people for whom it was intended.

After reading what other cities  and towns in B. C. were doing, tho  Bishop said Kolowna Idid not appear  in that list, but hoped it would do so  very^ soon.  At tho conclusion of tho Bishop's  address an opportunity wns given. to  people to give, or promise to give,  subscriptions to augment the fund nnd  a substantial sum wns raised.

Bill to Compel the  oi  A bill of the Utmost interest to all  poultryraen is being introduced into  the House this week, after having been  drafted by Mr. Frank J. McKenzie,  the member for Delta. It is known  n4 the "Egg Marking Bill."  Much difficulty bus been experienced  in hitting upon a method which would  protect the public from Chinese oggs,  because the Dominion government has  the exclusive jurisdiction over their  importation. The bill drawn by Mr.  McKenzie, however, appears to have  solved the problem, for tho ouus is  now placed on the dealer to see that  eggs sold by them are properly  marked.  Every importer or dealer, wholesale  and retail, having eggs in his possession whtoh he has placed in cold storage, which he knows have been preserved, or which, he knows have eome  from China, must have those oggs  marked properly as "cold storage/'  "preserved," and "from China." By  preserved eggs are meant eggs in  which the natural deterioration has  beon arrested or prevented by any  process whatever.       ,  It is further provided in the act thut  every proprietor of a manufaclury,  bakery, confectionery, hotel, restaurant  cafe, tea-room, or any place or shop  where eggs are exposed for sale or  used in the preparation of goods,  wares, or any food offered for sale or  sold for meals,,shall have placed in  his place of business a legible sign not  less than four inches high in some  conspicuous place where all ��� persons  entering the place ''of business can  readily see it. The sign must contain  cither the words "Chinese eggs used  here," or "Chinese eggs sold here,"  according to the fact. For breaches  of the net a fine of ?1(I0 is provided-  Ry this aot the poultry dqalertt of  tho province are protected from Lhe  competition of imported eggs, and the  public aro assured that eggs they may  buy are exactly the kind of eggs represented to them.  The only law on the subject at present is that requiring crates in which  eggs are imported from foreign  countries to be marked with the name  of the country.  The member for Delta, who is respon  siblo for the bill, has received from the  secretary of the II. 0. l'oulery st&.nsoci-  ation, a letter saying that the executive ol that body had instructed hiin  io write, thanking him for his valuable assistance in thc interests of the  poultry breeders of the province, and  especially in the light against Chinese  eggs-   O         \  Tho people who never make mistakes  all reside in tho cemetery, i  The C.

Soldiers  fired upon the airship :roi��i a d'Hlanca  of 60 yards. The Zeppelin exploded  with a great ��� detonation nnd was  burned.

Don't Neglect to Sprays  l.nst year apple scab did serious iu  jury and-Was tue cause ol considerable  Iosh to the grower- iu many, places.  In order, thereiore, to avoid a similar  loss, precautions should be taken  against this disease.  Tin; Important sprays for apple scab  are:���  1. When tlie blossoms are well separated in the cluster, but still unopened, with lime-sulphur, 1 to 30.  2. When the last petals are falling,  with lime and sulphur, 1 to 3fi.  8. The same strength applied ten  to twenty days later.  It will soon'ba time to put on the  second spray, and every offort should  be mado to gel it on. This spray  may be combined with "Mack Leaf  10," three quarters of a pint to 100  gallons of spray, for the oontroll of  aphis, and if leal-eating caterpillars or  luting insects nre present, with arsenate of lead, five pounds to fevery hundred gallons of the mixture.  IVherc powdery mildew of the apple  is present, "atomic sulphur" is preferable to the Htikv sulphur,'ns it is of  more value in checking the mildew.  For scab use twelve pounds atomic  sulphur to 100 gallons of water. This  spray can be combined with "Rlnok  i.onf -10 nnd araonato of lead without  impairing tho value of any one of  thorn.  "Soluble sulphur" is not recommend  ed after the blossoms drop, or in eom-  binntion with arsenate of lead.

1 iFriday, the 5th of May was
|fme"rnorable day for Westbank, for
on that day came a definite decision from the Provincial Government of guaranteeing the water
supply for irrigation purposes in
Westbank. This fact is of utmost
importance, for ever sinse West-
bank and Gellately have become
important fruit and farming centres
the shortage ot water which takes
place in Powers creek in the growing season has caused local farmers
frequent failures of crops, and
moreover, the knowledge of this
shortage of irrigation water at a
time when it is most needed has
seriously hindered the greater development of Westbank district.
This shortage, however, is now a
thing of the past, for the government, acting upon almost innumerable petitions from this district urging imperative need of storage
facilities at the head waters of
Powers creek, has decided to place
a party up at the extensive lakes
which are the source of the creek
and by means of a sluice gate oi
by opening up existing beavei
dams to thus guarantee i to settlers
of the district all the water that is
needed for irrigation purposes.
The irrigation system which conveys the water from Powers creek
to the various fruit lots is in excellent condition, and therefore ample
water is now assured to the individual ranchers. This news was
conveyed to the people of West-
bank by Mr. Young, Controller of
Water Rights for B.C., at a meeting
of the local ranchers held on Friday morning in the school house.
Mr. Gore, president of the Farmers Institute in introducing Mr.
Young, said his presence was a
direct result of a recent petition
sent to the government by the local
institute re the water situation in
Westbank, and he said it was Mr.
Young's desire to have local farmers lay the water situation clearly
before him. Accordingly, Mr.
Gellately of Gellately and Mr. S.
Blackwood of Westbank spoke at
some length, pointing out the loss
caused by crop failure in the past
due to shortage of ample irrigation
water, and also calling Mr. Young's
attention to the alarming exodus of
settlers from the restrict owing to
the government's delay in conserving the water supply for irrigation
purposes. Mr. Gellately pointed
out how easily - a dam could be
constructed at the head waters in
the creek, or how easily the existing lakes could be used as reservoirs and the beaver dams used to
keep a supply of water in the creek
during the growing season, and he
urged immediate action in the
matter by the government.
In reply, Mr. Young said that the
government realized the need of
storage facilities at Westbank and
accordingly he told the meeting of
the willingness of the government
to open up the extensive lakes at
the source of the creek and thereby
supply the settlers with abundant
water for irrigation purposes. The
obtaining of this guarantee from
the government is the last link in
the chain of the many unrivalled
advantages which make Westbank
the best farming and fruit district
in the Okanagan Valley. If anyone doubts the truth of this assertion we simply say: " Ask anyone
who has ever been here, or come
and see for yourself."

Packer, $5; l.O.O.F.  $17; and the following in kind:  Mr. Sullivan, 2 doz. eggs ; C. C.  Prowse, 2 crates onions, sack vegetables; J. Sutherland, 2 doz. hot  cross buns ; E. R. Bailey, 5 sacks  potatoes; Mrs. Pearson, I dozen  eggs; Mrs. Knowles, I doz. eggs;  Mrs. Thornloe, 1 doz. eggs; Mrs.  Brent, eggs ; Mrs. Trimble, eggs.  As mentioned some time ago, it  is very hard to keep exact tally on  all the goods that are received at  the hospital on account of the fact  that sometimes the goods are left  without any of the staff knowing  about it, so there necessarily must  be some goods received for which  the donors do not get credit for.  We might mention that owing to  the fact that there is a larger number of maternity cases receiving attention in the hospital, there is  more call for poultry and eggs than  formerly, hence the hospital board  would appreciate very much the  donations of this kind, and feel  that there are a number who would  supply some from time to time if  they knew there were any needed.  At present there are 13 patients  in the general hospital and 6 in  the maternity ward.  Juvenile Templar Lodge  Elects Officers  Purity IJuvenile Temple of the  I. O. G.

On Sunday next at the Benvoulin  church " Mothers Dav" will be  observed. This is an annual event  throughout the churches and makes  an universal appeal. In addition to  this special observance the service  will also be notable by the fact  that Mr. Donald McEachren will  be inducted into the eldership.  Service at 2 o'clock.  The weekly Sunday service in  the Glenmore school continues to  be well attended. A special ser.  vice will be held on Sunday next  in connection with the observance  of " Mothers Day." This day is an  annual tribute paid to our mothers  and doubtless a larger number than  usual will be in attendance to do  honor to their best friend.  Little " Buzzy" Thompson, the  four-year-old son of Mr. H. Thompson, of Thompson 6t McCall, Peach  land, was burnt to death last Wednesday in a fire which totally destroyed the house and contents.  Mr. Thompson was in the orchard  at the time and noticed smoke  issuing from the windows, but before he could reach the house it  was a mass of flames and all attempts at rescue of the child cut  off. The greatest sympathy is felt  in the district with the parents in  ���the loss of their little son, who was  a general favorite in the community.  The Hon. Price Ellison in a letter of May 3rd to the secretary of  the Equal Franchise League, ac  knowledging receipt of the resolution passed by the League, says  that the government have definitely  decided that referendum should  be taken. He adds: " 1 note your  objection to the referendum, namely, that many of the men who  would support the referendum are  fighting at the front for their country. 1 may say, for your information, that in the past I have voted  against franchise being given to  women, but after very careful serious consideration I am prepared  to vote in favor."

The ScoutB are very muota indebted  to Nurse Miller, matron of the Hospital, for the very useful lecture she gav��  to the .Scouts who intend to try. and  pass for the Missioner badge.

If you are in a district where fleas  are numerous it ia a good thing to  carry a small muslin bag full.of fennel  seed inside your ahirt and in your kit  bag. Sufficient seed oan be purchased  for the purpose from any green-grocer  for a small sum.  MidgeB, gnats, and mosquitoes are  apt to be troublesome during the summer evenings, and it is sometimes difficult to know how to guard yourself  against - them. One of tho beBt preventatives is to use peppermint soap  when you wash, for midges, gnats,and  mosquitoes all dislike the smell, and  will keep away from anyone uBing it.  You may be able to buy this from the  chemist, but if not you oan get him to  mix a little oil of peppermint or oil  of eucalyptus ur some other strong  smelling stuff with some soft soap.  Put a little of this on your hands,  dip them into water, and then rub the  lather all over your hands, your face,  and your neek, in fact over every part  where the gnats can bito you. Leave  it on and do not either rub it off or  wash it off, but let it dry on the skin.  If you have todeal with mosquitoes,  do not forget to apply the soap to  the inBide of oach noBtril, for otherwise the iuBect may find tho unprotect-'  ed Bpot and sting you thero,  COMPLICATED  Scout Hampton: Beastly weather*  isn't it?  Corporal Crabbit: Not at all. The  only creature that would hke this  weather In a duck, and a duck, and a  duck isn't abeast, it's a fowl. Therefore it is foul weather.���Soout.   L-0   NEW, TRENCH CANNON  The British army has given another  Bad Btirprise to its enemies.  It has installed and ia already using  a most effective trench weapon which  absolutely deadly to adversaries,  and being automatically aimed by a  perisoope attachment, exposes those  using it to no danger.  A Bmall boy who was sitting next  to a very haughty lady in a oity  street car, kept sniffing in a moat annoying manner. At last the lady  could bear it no longer, and turned to  the <lad:  Boy,   have  you 'got     a   handkerchief?" she demanded.  Tho small boy looked at iier for a  few seconds, and then, in a dignified  tone, camo the answer:  "Yes, I have, but I don't lend it to  strangers."  Kitchener Pays Tribute  to General Townshend  In the House of Lords Friday,  Field Marshal Earl Kitchener, tho  Secretary of State for War, eulogized  General Townshend and the defenders  of Kut-el-Amara, and read General  Townshend's last despatch, which is as  follows:  "We are pleased to know that we  have done our duty, and recognize  that our situation is one of the fortunes of war. Wo thank you, General  Gorringe (commander of tjio Brlish  relief army), and all ranks of the  Tigris farce, for the great efforts you  have made to save ua."  rmminent starvation compelled tho  surrender of Kut-ol-Amara added  Lord Kitchener, and adverse dements  alone denied the success to the relief  forceB.  Lord Kitchener said ho Mas glad of  the opportunity to pay tribute to  General Townshend and his troops  "whosC dogged determination ' and  splendid courage had earned for them  so honorable a record."  Eulogi-ea Townshend  After a series of brilliantly-fought  engagements, continued Lord . Kitchener, Geneal Townshend decided  to hold the strategically important po- !  sition of Kut-el-Amara, and it should  not be forgotten that his dispositions  for tho defence of the place wero so !  excellent that tho Turks, notwithstanding their numerical superiority  wero not able to penetrate the linos of  the British. The House would not  fail to realize, the War Minister believed, how tense was the strain upon  these' troops, which, for more than 20  Weeks had hold their positions under  abnormal climatic conditions, and on  rations calculated for protraction for  the furthest period, as it proved starvation compelled  their surrender.  "General Townshend and his troops,  in their honorable captivity/' added  Lord Kitchener, "will have tho satisfaction of knowing that in the opinion  of their comrades, which is shared by  the House of Lords and tho country,  that they did all that was humanly  possible to resist to tho last, and tho  surrender reflected no discredit on tho  record of British and Indian arms.  "Every cfTort has been made to re-  relieve the besieged garrison, and od-  verso elements were responsible for the  lack of success. Constant rain and  the consequent lloodB had not only impeded the advance, but had compelled  in place of a turning movement, a  direct attack upon an impossibly narrow, front.  "No praise would appear extravagant for the troops under Generals  Lake and Gorringe, and that they did  not reap the fruit of 'their courage and  dovbtion was due solely to circumstances which fought against them."  ��� o -  WHY STRIKES km CRIMINAL  The whole game of warfare Las undergone a complete revolution. Rules  whioh wero fondly cherished, even two  years ago, have been shattered ruthlessly, LcBsons are being leu > nud  every day, but the most important  lesson of all is that a modern battle  is decided in the workshop. Iho  triumphs on the field are but the outward and visible signs of what has  boen accomplished in tho mills and  factories hundreds of miles to the  rear  Tho first indication of the extraordinary manner in which ammunition  would be coiiBumed was given at the  battle of .tho Marne, when over 350,-  000 shells wero exchanged during a  day. The expenditure of the allies  alone ran up to around 180,000 shells  during tho twenty-four hours.  It was conoeded that tho Franco-  German war of 1870'oflered little reliable bais for computing the requirements of artillery, but it wsb considered possible to take the Russo-Japanese campaign as a reliable index in  this connection. But this great war  haa degenerated into n struggle which  is totally different in Vjvery respect  from anv previous struggle. ���World's  Work.  . , r> '  SECOND HAND SCANDAL    .

Great care  should bo t-xeretsed in buying potatoes  grown in infected areas for seed, and  they should always .be disinfected.  "Common Scab and Hhizootonia are  both very common. Tnbers slightly  affected may be used for seed if no  other can be obtained, but should be  carefully disinfected.  1NTEENAL DISEASES  "Stem End Rot, or Wilt. Shows as  a dark ring under the skin when a  thin slice is cut off the stem end.  "Late blight and various Fusoriuni  rots cause discoloration and rotting of  the flesh. No treatment will render  such tubers Ot to plant.)  DISINFECTING  "As a measure of precaution against  the introduction and spread of the a-  bove diseases, seed should always be  disinfected. Use either half a pound  of 40 per cent, formaldehyde in 15  gullons of water, or one part corrosive sublimate in 1,000 parts of water  (tablets to readily make up this  strength can be purchased at any drug  store, or use one ounce of the chemical to six gallons of water). Corrosive sublimate is much the more effective, and is the only one to employ  if Hhizootonia iB present. It is, however, a deadly poison if taken internally, and care must be uued in the uuo  and disposal of it. It also cocrodeB  motals, so mix in a wooden vessel.  Souk the tubers 1$ to 2 naars.

Specimens  of the various diseases are kept for  illustration and any information pbs-  sible will be gladly given.  .    DIGGING AND GRADING  Extra care should be taken in dig  ring your seed plot and each 1 ill  '.ould be dug separately with it fork  ind any hills which do not produce  loavily or which peoduce too largo a  icrcentage of small tubers should be  liscarded to be sold, and only the  tills showing the best shape and the  greatest number of marketable tubers  should be kept,  Theso should be kept by themselves  away from the commercial crop, and  after following this method for a few  vcars you will realize that this sedd  plot will havo paid you many .hundredfold for the little time and attention you have^given it.  HARVESTING POTATOES,  In digging your commercial plot for  the market, be careful not to allow  the tubers to remain in the sun or  wind for any length of time after digging, but get thorn into a dark plfce  as soon as possible. The percentage  of "sun blighted and winded" potatoes sold on tho market is enormous  and the waste to the customers is  great. The growers of British Columbia can greatly increase the .consumption of potatoes in the cities by  placing only first class stock on the  markets. Grading is very essential  and growers would do well to discard  at digging time all rough, uneven,  and small stock, and when preparing  the crop for the market they should  again grade. Grading, properly done  alwnys pays.  We have mado these sugge i ti ons  very brief. We ask for your; io-  operation in this work.  R. M.
