The lirignc  felt that if the present one oond i ot  be fixed a new one should be purchased.  It was stated that on several occasions lately the syran had been ouitu  inaudible to residents south of the  creek. This was all the mors struuge  aB when the syren was lirst lnstaded  it was loud enough, as the Chief put  it, to "wuue the dead."  It waa decided to have tbe syren  taken apart to see ii thsrs was anything wrong  with it.  Regarding the question of a night  watchman. Aid.

Aid. Buck waa authorized to inform  tba Brigade chat the oounoil was m  sympathy wiih Iheir request, and  would consider the appointmi'it oi "  returned soldier to the position ut u  future data.  The cultivation ol vacant lots was  brougut to the notioe of the oounoil uy  a letter irom the Single lax Association of Ottawa, who saw in it u  means of swelling the revenue oi ths  1'atriotio Fund. Tha soheme outlined  was lor the oity to provide ..ecu���pot  atoes uhieliy���the citizens to be calico  upon to volunteer their services lu  plant and cultivate the land. 'hit  proceeds of the sale uf the crop, uitur  deducting expenses incurred by ire  city, were to be devoted to ths 1'ntl'i'  otic Fund or some other object connected with the war. The result -a ould  be a greatly increased prediction in  the country, as wail as a cuu.ideiuLle  source of revenue ior ths Full.  Something along the same i no, the  provincial Department oi Arjtioultuic  forwarded rules and rtyuUtinos governing competitions proposed to be  held for the bast home gardous, in 'ho  hops of enoouragiog individtul traduction in this way. The oontests  were to be arranged by soma looal or  gardzation, the government, supplying  135 out of the tU to be offered in  cash prizes.  It was deoided to hand the letter lo  the Farmers' Instituto.  Tenders were received for street  watering during the coining season,  and that oi Dillon & Son,lor 50o per  hour for the supply o( man, team, and  harness, was accepted.  Messrs. M Cameron, C. Micoll, and  D. McMillan waited on the council with  a request to replace the old irrigation  oulverts on Ethel street, Bernard ave.,  and Riohtos street, so as to enable  them to get water on to tb*..i u.spec-  live properties.  The request, however, did not seem  to mast with general approval amongst  the aldermen. Mayor Sutherland  pointed out that ths counoil disclaim  ed all liability for keeping the old irrigation system in repair, and any  concession the oounoil might make  must be regarded as a donation for  the purpose of encouraging the cultivation oi land which was at the pro  sent time unproductive.  Finally an offer was made that the  oity would supply the necessary lumber if tiie owners of property interest'  ed would do aU the work under tbe  supervision of ths road foreman..

Sewell of Kelowna, apple  packing instructer, is a guest at  the Lakeview while conducting a  packing school here this week.  Messrs Brown and Michael of  Peachland were in the district this  week canvassing for growers of  tomatoes, to be delivered at the  Peachland cannery at $14 a ton.

April 3, 1917  Orders by command for week  ending 14th of April.  1917.  DUTIES: Orderly patrol for  week.Wolves; next for duty Eagles.  PARADES: The combined  troop will parade at the club room  on Wednesday the I Ith of April at  7.15 p.m. On Friday the 13th instant, all those who wish to play  basket ball will parade at the exhibition building, the small boys at  7.15. and the bigger boys at 8  o'clock. On Saturday the 14th instant, the combined troop will  parade at the club room at  2.30 p.m.  On Saturday of this week, all  patrol leaders who are not trying  their "hike" test for the first class  badge, will have a patrol meeting.  We have to record another  severe loss suffered by our troop;  this time in the departure of our  troop leader Anthony DuMoulin,  who left to attend Port Hope  school, Ontario, on Saturday last.  He was one of the original members of the troop, having joined  on the 4th of April 1912, when he  was 11 years old. He passed his  tenderfoot test on the I Oth of May  following, and passed as a second  class scout on the 15th ol December of that year. He passed as a  first class scout on the 24th of  March 1913, and in addition to  this was the holder of 13 proficiency badges, all round cords  grade "A" and "B", and on the  24th of August 1914 had passed  as a king's scout Prior to being  appointed troop leader some  few months ago. he was patrol  leader of the Curlews, which patrol  had the honour of winning the  shield presented by the Aquatic  Association for last year. In our  standing amongst the troops of the  province we shall miss him very  much on account of the number  of badges which go away with him,  quite apart from our personal loss.  He was a most regular attendant  of all troop parades and always a  loyal and active member of the  troop, continuing his work right up  to the time he left. The troop  ishes him the best of luck and  success in his new sphere of work,  and training.  Our troop membership i9 now  down to 28, including two members unattached at the present  lime.  We had a poor turn out at the  troop parade on both Wednesday  and Saturday of last week; on Saturday there were only 14 present,  but we congratulate the Beavers  on having a perfect attendance.  We refer all those who were absent to the provincial rule which  we quoted last week under the  heading of attendance. All those  who were present on Saturday,  competed for the mile at scouts  pace but only two were successful  in passing���scout F. Whitehead of  the Beavers, and second L. Gaddes  of the Eagles. All scouts in any  patrol who are unable to be present at a patrol meeting must notify  their patrol leader, and patrol leaders in turn who are unable to be  present must notify the scoutmast  er  in   plenty   of   time   before   a  parade.  We are very anxious to hold our  concert earliei this year than last,  but if we have such erratic attendances it is doubtful whether we  shall be able to have a concert at  all. We are quite aware that the  school Easter exams have been on  lately, but they would not effect  Saturday afternoon.

Renfrew and child went on  a visit to Vancouver Monday.  Mra. Mortimer was a passenger  yesterday for Falder, on the K.V.  Nine pupils attended the recent  pruning school held by Mr. Ches-  bro, and made a very satisfactory  showing.  Mr. S. Bray went up the lake on  a visit to Vernon yesterday.  A successful course in fruit  packing at the school, arranged  by the Farmers' Institute, was taken by thirteen pupils in a day class,  and sixteen in an evening class.  Mr. Castner, of Vernon, being the  instructor.  The fire brigade were called out  last Saturday afternoon to an outbreak of fire in the dry grass of a  field on Richter atreet nc rth, and  which threatened to involve the  fences and some small buildings.  The brigade turned out in record  time and the danger   was quickly  Two more local boys have enlisted this week in the 2nd C.M.R.  overseas force : Fred B. Small of  South Okanagan, and F. E. Rob-  bins of Kelowna. The former has  already two brothers in the forces,  while the latter's father and brother  are already overseas. The 2nd  C.M.R., it might be mentioned,  have now been supplied with horses, and are training as a regular  cavalry unit.  The contract has been let this  week for the rebuilding of the  Raymer block to Mr. J. A. Bigger,  and considerable work has already  been done in the preliminary  clearing of the ruins left by the  fire. Mr. Geo E. Ward has undertaken the sub-contract for the brickwork, and Mr. Galbraith for the  plumbing and heating. The work  is to be pushed forward as rapidly  as possible.  Word was received this morning  by Mr. F. Bouvette that his son  Wilfred had been dangerously  wounded. No other particulars  were given. Wilfred (or as he was  better known, " Sunshine") was,  as his nick-name would imply, always of a cheerful and sunny disposition, and well known and liked  about town. It is to be hoped that  later reports will prove to be more  favorable.  The Kelowna Sawmill started  operations this week, and the buzzing of the saws gives a welcome  air of activity to things again.  Plans have been laid for an extensive cut of lumber this year, a large  portion of it for export purposes.  A good supply of logs is already  at the chute, and some two million  feet are piled up across the lake as  the result of the logging operations  of the Max Jenkins Co. These  are to be hauled down to the lake  by wagons, the snowfall not having  been favorable to sleighing during  the winter. It is anticipated, too,  that a large output of fruit boxes  will demand the attention of the  mill this year.  Mr. J. E. Reekie returned Monday from Victoria.  Manager Dobieof the Okanagan  Telephone Co., was in town laat  week-end.  Mr. E. Newby is now out of the  hospital and progressing favorably  after his recent operation.  Mr. and Mra. Geo. Whiuker  desire to express their deep appreciation of the many expressions  of sympathy which have reached  them in connection with the loss  of their only son in the war.

Mr. Jones is now  verv much improved in health and  is throwing all his energies into  his work.  Mr. P. Dunn, of the citv offices,  was operated on last week by Dr.  Arnott for an internal abdominal  affection from which he has suffered for a considerable time. Mr.  Dunn is reported to be making  very satisfactry progress and hopes  to be out of the hospital early  next week.

All interested  in the movement and particularly  school trustees are cordially invited to attend.  Mr. Wm. Crawford sr. of Craw-  fords Falls who recently sustained  an injury to his head by a tall and  was brought to the Kelowna  hospital in a serious state of concussion is reported to be doing  quite well and was able to sit up  yesterday. Owing to Mr.Crawford's  advanced age Dr. Arnott considered an operation unwise, and the  patient has responded quite well  to medical treatment.  Mr. E. C. Weddell is paying a  visit to the coast this week in connection with the appeal of the  Geo. Vipond Co. against the decision given in favor of the Occidental Fruit Co., in the Kelowna county  court recently, when the latter  were awarded the amount of their  claim against the Winnipeg wholesalers for a shipment of tomatoes.J  With the idea of raising funds  for the Home for Friendless Women, at Victoria, the ladies of the  W.C.T.U. are arranging to hold a  sale of home cooking on Saturday  in the store of Mr. Trenwith, who  has kindly loaned a window for  the occasion.

More War Films  While men and women reading the  war despatches thril at Uie magnificent work done by the infantry in tlie  trenches, the sailors on the sea, and  the Uviators in the uir, few step ta  think of the marvellous work being accomplished by a little advertised  branoh of the army, the Medical Corps.  There have been 12,000 Canadian casualties since the war. and by far th  most of the Canadian wounded have  beL>n handled by Canadian modicu!  stall. Thcrt) are four or five thousand  wounded Canadians in hospitals in  Kuglund at the present time, all of  whom ure receiving the best poBsiblo  medical attention.  Some idea of the great work aooom  plished in this direction is given in  tliii notable war film, "Canada's Fight-  ing Forces," series two, which is being  shown ut the Kelowna Theatre on  Tuesday, April 10th. A remarkable  serial <>f aviation pictures, some of  them taken from a Canadian aeroplane over 7000 feet in the air, is also  Included. The Hat tie of Jutland, the  fat* of Zeppelin L 21, the Canadian  army in attack and trench war-fur  the motor boat patrol service, aad  other subjects are dealt with most tn*  stnietively in this valuable oontribu  tion to the lint of war pictures.  Be Prepared.  The motto of the Boy Scouts is a good one for  the whole family. Be prepared for emergencies  as well as for the every day tasks of life.  When going shopping, being prepared means  knowing what you want, the price you must pay  ���and the best place to obtain it. Be prepared to  refuse substitutes and insist on what you KNOW  will suit your purpose.  Prepare to do the best for your own interests,  by reading the advertising columns and learning  what the merchant and manufacturer have to  offer you.

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