 Ivclottma lUcwti  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA. THURSDAY, MARCH 28, 1918.-4 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  Meeting to  Pound Law Matters  A further effort was made on  Saturday afternoon for the local  cattle-men and orchard owners in  pound district to get together and  adjust aome of the differences  which have caused a good deal of  heart-burning during the past few  months. There were about twenty-  five people present at the meeting  which was held under the auspices  of the Farmers' Institute, and there  were representatives of all the local  districts.  Mr. L. E. Taylor who took the  chair explained that when at Victoria, Mr. W. T. McDonald, live  atock commissioner, had given him  the definite information that where  stock trespassed in a pound district  or elsewhere no claim for damage  could be made unless the land trespassed upon was bounded by a  legal fence. This cleared up a  point which had often been in dispute in the district.  Several members who' lived in  the Glenmore pound district stated  that they were prepared to keep  up legal fences and to persuade ail  others to do the same so that the  trouble of fence breaking would be  done away with. The cattle-men  on the other hand ezpi eased a wish  to keep their cattle out of the  pound districts by herding and  proper supervision.  Mr. E. M. Carruthers mentioned  that the Land and Agricultural  Company were prepared. to pav  half the cost if the owners of adjoining lands would put up legal  - fences.  The matter of deciding exactly  what was a legal fence presented  some difficulty, and after some discussion it waa decided to ask the  government to appoint five men  for the district between Ellison and  Okanagan Mission to act as fence  viewers under the Act. The following names were suggested:  Messrs. H. C. S. Collett, M. Hereron, J. N Gushing, J.Carney and W.  D. Walker.  _A resolution proposed by W.Price  and seconded by P. A. Lewis was  passed asking the government to  amend the Pound Act so as to  abolish alf rewards for captors and  distrainers.  It was also decided to ask for  the exemption from the operation  ot pound laws oi all stock belonging to soldiers on active service.  A source of much trouble to  pound keepers and others were  the numerous unowned and valueless horses- which roamed the  range and often got into pound.  When this happened there was no  claimant, and no one to pay the  fees. It was impossible to sell  such animals, and the pound-keepers had no authority to slaughter  them. The only thing to do was  to turn them back on the range to  consume feed needed for better  stock. The secretary was aaked  to write to the government on this  matter.  A German "monster cannon"  which has been bombarding Paris  has been located in the forest of  St. Gobain, west of Laon, and exactly 112 kilometers (approximately 76 miles), from the Paris city  hall.  At the Baptist church on Sunday  evening" the choir under Mr. W.  Pearson will render selections from  "Gethsemane to Calvary," a cantata. Mra. J. H. Trenwith 'will be  the soloist.  Low Yet, a local Chinaman, was  in trouble this week from his possession of the forbidden opium  Having had their suspicions aroused the police"'arrested Mr. Yet  yesterday, and after a preliminary  hearing, he waa let but on'bail of  $25. He failed to appear, however, when called upon, and hia  bail waa forfeited.        '  An increase of no less than $50,-  000,000 in the value of dairy products in Canada is claimed by the  Dominion dairy commissioner aa a  result of improvements which have  been made in herds since 1914.  These improvements are due to the  growth of thejpractice of "cow testing" which it is. believed has increased the average yield of milk per  cow for all Canada by fully 30 per  cent.

Need Funds to Furnish  War Veterans' Rooms  The Kelowna War Veterans  held a meeting Tuesday evening  in the Hewetson-Man.tlf office  (kindly lent for the occasion, pending the fitting up of their own rooms  upstairs). The purpose of the  meeting was largely in connection  with those rooms, and the arrangements for furnishing and equipping.  In order to raise funds for this purpose it was decided to hold a dance  on Thursday, April 25. Aa already  mentioned the two rooms which  have been engaged for the Veterans under the auspices of the city  council, are those in the Heweteon-  Mantle block formerly occupied by  Dr. Macnaughton. -There will be  a bedroom and a parlor, and will  form a temporary home for any  men returning without a definite  place to stay.  The association now has about  twenty-five members but aa many  of these live out in the country it  is diffiicult to get them all together.  A further meeting is called for  April 10th when a full attendance  is desired.  British Lines Unbroken  by German Offensive  The greet German offensive, or  what looks like it, has started in  France, and the greatest battle in  the world's history has been raging  for the past week. Over many  miles of the British front west of  Cambrai the attack has been made  and with auch violence that the  British have been compelled to fall  back in placea. Notwithstanding  the magnitude of the forces engaged, little real news has come to  hand. Later dispatchea would  seem to indicate that the defence  is stiffening, and that the Allied  fortified lines remain unbroken.  The German advance is being  made over territory laid waste in  the German retreat last year, and  so far ita object ia not very clear.  Enemy losses are said to be  enormous and manv times that of  the allies.  A meeting is called for Tuesday  afternoon next at 4.30 p.m. of all  those who are desirious of joining  the new Automobile and Good  | Roads Association, which is being  Jformed under the auspices of the  The Kettle Valley Railroad hasfKelowna Board of Tarde.

Automobile Clubto Meet  for Organization Tuesday  number of names given in is now  about sufficient to enaure a successful start, it is likely that the initial  steps toward organization will be  taken at this meeting. It is I here-  fore desired that a good attendance  be present. Not only automobilists  but ail interested in - good roads  'are eligible to join.   .   : There is a strong probability of  legislation coming down  this sea-  Mr. and Mrs. Underbill and family of Hartney, Man., were viaiting     ���  ���   friends in town this week,  leaving I sion to effect the generally desired  I conscription of vacant lots throughout the cities ofthe province to increase the production of food  through intensive cultivation.  When and How to Spray to  Get the Best Results  fly BEN HOY  Thie year the price of labor and spraying material is high and fruit growerscan-  not afford to waste material and labor.  Spraying is essential and must be done in  order to protect the trees against pesta  and insure a higher percentage of No. I  fruit, but before buying material and applying spray find out what pests you are  spraying for and all you can about their  habits, and then apply the.correct mixture  at the proper time" thoroughly. With the  information so readily available about  spraying methods, haphazard, hit and miss  methods should be a thing of the past.  Hundreds of dollars are wasted annually  by improper spraying. The chief reasons  for this loss are:���  1. Not knowing what the spray is for;  2. Lack of knowledge of the pest to be  destroyed;  3. Spraying at the wrong time;  4. Incorrect spray mixtures;  5. Too small outfit and too low pressure;  6. Wrong nozzles;  7. Lack of thoroughness  8. Casting aside well tried out and proven mixtures and experimenting with new,  untried ones;  9. Unnecessary spraying.  A few of the pests attacking the orchards  and methods of control are given below.  The sprays recommended are those that  have been used successfully by the best  growers, and that by careful investigation  and experiment have been found to be  sale and efficient.  APPLE PESTS  Grean and Wooly Aphis and Apple  Scab are the chief pests of the apple in  this district. Aphis cannot be successfully  controlled in the egg stage. Where green  aphis are numerous spray with Black Leaf  40, whenthe buds are bursting, or mix  the Black Leaf 40 with lime and sulphur  in the pink spray for apple scab. Spray  at any time during the season when the  aphis, are numerous.  -  Wooly Aphia.���Black Leaf 40 and soap  the aame as far green aphis ia used for this  past. Spray just aa soon as the aphis b<  come at all numerous and often enough  to keep them in check. Because of thi  waxy covering and clustering habit of this  nsect a high pressure penetrating spray ia  necessary for good results. Each insect  must be hit with the spray and the spray  must penetrate to the body of the insect to  kill. For underground forms scrape earth  away from the roots and spray same as at  the top.  Apple Scab,���Macintosh, Snows and any  other varieties that are, subject to scab  should be sprayed. It is too late to think  of spraying late in the season after the scab  begins to show on the fruit so the spray  must be applied as a preventative. The  following sprays thoroughly applied are  satisfactory tor scab:���  1. Lime and Sulphur testing 32 degrees  Baume: I gallon LotS to 30 of water when  the blossom clusters have spread and the  blossoms are in the pink;  2. Spray just after the petals have fallen ;  L.S 1 to35;    -  3. Spray again from two to three weeks  after the second spray ;*L&$ I to 35.  For leaf eating insects arsenate of lead  can be added to the Lime and Sulphur at  the rate of 5 lbs. to on�� hundred gallons  pf spray. Black leaf 40 can also be added  for aphis.  Never mix soap with lime and sulphur.  Pear pests  Pear Leaf Blister Mite, Pear and Cherry  Slug and Red Spider are the chief pear  pesta here. For Blister Mite spray with  Lime and Sulphur I to 9 just as the bud  scales are spreading.  Pear Slug.���Arsenate of Lead 5 lbs. to  40 -gallons of water when the slugs fir*>(  appear.  Red Spider.���Lime and sulphur I to 65  when insect becomes numerous.  CHERRY PESTS  Black Cherry Aphis.���Spray V ith Black  Leaf 40. t pint, 5 lbs. whale oil soap to 100  gallons of water.  For Cherry Slug use same spray as for  pear slug.  PLUMS  AND PRUNES  Aphis.���Use  Black  Leaf 40 and  soap  same aa for cherry aphis.  Peach Twig Borer (Anarsia LineatelU)  sometimes found attacking prunea.���-Uae  Lime and Sulphur ,"to 9, just when the  buds are showing green at the tips. Direct  the nozzles into the crotches of twigs and  branches.  Women's Institute Are  Arranging Flower Show  The committee of the Women's  Institute charged with the arrangements of this year's flower show,  have been very busy lately, and  their plana.are now well advanced.  There is every prospect of a much  larger show this year, particularly  as ita scope is to be enlarged to include the products of the amateur's  vegetable garden.  Flower culture haa been steadily  gaining in popularity in the city  during the paat year or two and if  the annual show doea nothir? else  but encourage that beautiful hobby  it will have amply justified its existence. A.large number of attractive special prizes given by merchants and others appear in the  cut flower section, while the new  vegetable section haa been equally  well favored. This latter is no  doubt a concession to the food  production spirit which is abroad,  and should have the effect of fur  ther increasing interest in the home  garden.  Another interesting and valuable  feature is a series ef prizes offered  by Mr. Geo. Chick for the best kept  flower and vegetable garden in the  city. This competition is for amateurs only, and as its object is to  aid in beautifying the city as well  as to encourage production, points  will be given for the general tidiness and neatness of everything  around the house. Even the state  of the boulevar d in front of the  house will be considered. This is  a contest which should enthuse all  home lovers.  The show ia to be held in the  Aquatic Pavilion ori August 5th.  The Kelowna Women's Institute  will meet at 3 o'clock on Monday,  April I st, in the Prisoners of War  tearooms. Addresses will be given  on sweet pea culture and the garden in war time. Members who  have not already done so are  asked to kindly bring in their quota  of recipea for the Institute cook  book.  On Sunday evening the choir  of the United church will render  an rppropriate aervice of Easter  music. In addition to the choir  numbers violin solos will be rendered by Mr. Drury Pryce.  A special court whist drive is  being arranged for Friday, April  5th, the proceeds of which will be  used to purchase tables for the  Prisoners of War tea room.  At the annual meeting of the  Vernon civic court of revision few  changes were made in the assessment roll for 1918, the reduction  amounting to only $3375. The roll  now stands with land assessment  amounting to $2,172,921, and improvements valued at $1,514,000.  Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Knowles left  yesterday for a visit to Victoria.  Miss Russell's Classes recommence April the 7th. The usual  English branches. Modern languages if necessary, Painting and  other Arts and Crafts. Individual  tuition for one or backward children.

Miss Mearns of the Green Tea  Room is this week moving over to  what was formerly known as the  "Garth" on Ellis street, next to the  Baptist church. The new premises  will be much more convenient.  Provision is to be made for full  board and residence, rooms only  or board, commencing from Tuesday, April 2nd,  Lieut. Evan E. Price, of the Royal Canadian Dragoons, and a nephew of Mr. W. H. Crawford, haa  won his D.S.O. for work during a  successful raid at Hargieaurt in  February. 'Lieut. Price went to  France in December of last year,  and won the Military Cross during  cavalry action in April and in July  a bar to his cross during dismounted action.  More Kelowna Soldiers  Return from Overseas  Last Saturday afternoon another  little party of Kelowna men came  in after theii long journey from  the old country. These were Pte.  Adams, with his son Pte. Harry  Adams and Pte. Joe McGarrity.  They were given the usual ovation  with the stean whistles on the boat  and ashore, and a large number  of people drawn by the now familiar "signal, had gathered on the  wharf by the time the boat reached  the landing. Pte. Adams, the elder,  had been overseas with the Forestry Corps, and in that capacity had  been engaged both in England  and France. Prior to that he was  for aome time on home service  with the R.M.R.'a. Few families  have contributed so many to the  forces as that of Pte. Adams, for  in addition to himself four of his  sons have enlisted at different  times. One of the sons, Alfred,  is now in France, a corporal with  a machine gun company. Charlie  is in hospital in London having  been badly wounded in the battle  of Lens, resulting in the loss of  a leg. He had come practically  unscathed through several important engagements prior to that.  Harry, who returned Saturday, waa  also injured, though not in the  fighting. He had the misfortune  to fall in the darkness into a trench  at a training camp in England,  breaking hia ankle. He ia not vet  recovered from this and may have  to undergo further treatment.  Pte. McGarrity was ono of the 172nd  ���nd wont over to France with a draft from  that company. Trench fever, however,  laid him up aa it haa laid up many more,  and he i. still not over the evil effect, of  it.  On Tuesday Pte. Fred Gore came in,  accompanied by hia wife who had journeyed up the lake to meet him. He received  a hearty welcome and wa. kept busy'band  shaking for a while. Pte. Gore was one  of the 172nd boys, one of "the band in  fact when the company left'here. He wa.  transferred however in England and saw  much trench fighting. It wa. at Vimy that  he waa badly cut up by a shrapnel shell,  and since then ha. .pent hi. time in hospital. He speaks highly of the treatment  received, but he ia not yet entirely recovered, and has a decided limp, and a  wound not thoroughly healed. He haa to  report for further treatment in a few days  at Vancouver.  Pte.. A. Gibb aad Plant of Kelowna are  also expected within a few day*.  Former Kelowna Man Wins  Rapid Promotion  The coast papers this week contained the photograph of Lieut-  Col, W. H. Moodie, 9th Battalion,  Canadian Railway Troops, well-  known in the Kelowna district,  having been connected for some  time with the Kelowna Land and  Orchard Co., as engineer and m an  ager. Lieut.-Col. Moodie'a promotion has been rapid. He left here  as lieutenant with the R.M.R.'s and  qualified as captain at Victoria later  attending a military achool at Ottawa, where he took a courae of  instruction in field work and gunnery. He went overseas as major. 1  He has been mentioned in despatches on several occasions and  wa>' awarded the D.S.O. recently.  This is not his first experience  of war for he ia a South African  war veteran. He joined the colors  as a private in 1899 with the  Rocky Mountain Rangers at Kaalo,  B.C., and fought against the Boers  with a Kootenay contingent. When  peace waa declared he became  attached to the Central South  African Railway as a civil engineer  and officiated in thia capacity for  a period of six years.  Mrs. Moodie and her children  are now residing in Vancouver.  The enemy is now throwing hit  last ounce of weight and resource!  into the struggle, saya a correspondent. Upon the course of the immediate future hanga the issue of  the war. There is no need for  pessimism. This offensive is the  result of desperation.

Seed Supply Ready for  Distribution  Further particulars have now  been obtained regarding the distribution of seed grain authorized  under the new "Seed Grain Act."  In a circular letter issued by the  deputy minister of agriculture it is  stated that supplies of wheat, oats  and barley have been obtained  and arrangements made for its  distribution from certain selected  points. For this district Vernon is  the distributing centre and advice  from Mr. Norris, government agent,  who has been charged with the  work, is to the effect that two carloads are already on hand. These  are to be delivered to farmers'  nearest shipping point at the following prices:  (a) Marquis Seed-Wheat, $88 ton  (b) Banner Seed-Oats.      $95   ���  (c) Treasury Seed-Barley,$95   ���  Those  wishing   to   apply for an  advance of seed-grain under the  provisions of the Act may secure  application forms from Mr. L. Norris, government agent, Mr. R. L  Dalglish, secretary of Farmers' Institute, or from the Department of  Agriculture. Copies of the "Seed-  grain Act" may be" obtained from  any of the above. Seed-grain will  only be distributed on "note" to  those not in a position to pay cash.  Whilst every effort has been  made to secure the best seed available, the Department does not  accept any responsibility, nor will  the Department undertake to guarantee the quality of the seed to be  distributed.  Those requiring seed should  make application at once to enable  those in charge of the distribution  to complete their difficult task as  expeditiously as possible, and to  ensure an equitable distribution of  the seed available.  A considerable list of local names  has already been handed in to Mr.  Dalglish.  The Chilliwack Creamery will  be taken over by the Fraser Valley  Milk Producers' Association, which  has been operating it for the past  year with the option of purchase,  and arrangements have been pat  in hand to put the creamery company into voluntary liquidation.  Producing stockholders in the  creamery association will be paid  in stock of the milk producers' association, and non-producing  stockholders in cash.

Seize Dutch Shipping  One million tons of Dutch shipping is today beneath Allied flags  ready to swell a depleted merchant  marine in a war against Germany.  Seventy-sevenshipsof600,000 tons  were seized in American waters  and 400,000 tons in British ports by  Great Britain.  Thia significant addition'.to the  Allied fleets was accomplished  over night after Holland's answer  to proposals for an agreement had  proven impossible of acceptance.  The seizure means that the present net losses due to the submarine warfare have been made good  in advance for the next ten months.  Prehistoric Irrigation  The remains of irrigation systems  when the valleys of Arizona were  inhabited by highly civilized Indian  tribes, are still in existence, sajsthe  Marine Journal. One of the most  famous of these is on the state highway, running from Prescott to the  Grand Car.von.  Water is taken from what is  known as Montezuma's well, a curious natural well 440 feet in diameter and 93 feet deep, except in  one spot, where no bottom haa  been reached at 500 feet. Lime in  solution is carried by the water,  and the sides of the ditch have  been prese. ved by the petrification  of the original earth.  A party of provincial experts ate  now in the Fraser valley assisting  the growers there to repair thi  damage done to their trees by the  recent ice storms. Many of the  trees will have to be cut back and  grafted with new varieties.  Last year �� alifornia shipped 40,  000 cars of oranges, but thi i year  only 15,000 carloads will be ship  ped. and about 7,000 carloads of  lemons, owing to the drought last  summer.  Within the next few davs the  decision with regard to the hold  ing of a bye-election in Victoria to  fill the vacancy occasioned by the  death of the, late premier will be  made. While no definite date has  as yet been fixed, it is the general  opinion in local Liberal circles  thai the bye-election will be held  almost immediately after the rising  of the legislature,  about  the mid  NOTICE  In the matter of the estate of Rembler  Paul, late of Kelowna, in the province of  British Columbia, deceased.

Dear Sirs- I wish to bring  before you a case which I think  would be of great interest to Canadian Scouts and the Movement in  general. 1 have been for two years  on the Serbian front in Serbia with  the Red Cross and the army. 1  have seen myself the misery and  poverty brought about by the Ger- ,  mans and 1 have also seen that the dle ot next month  only hope of'an almost exterminated people is in the rising generation, the present men and women  are too dispirited to achieve much.  Far seeing Serbians are raising private funds to look after small boys  and girls found in villages on the  Salonica front as we advance into  Serbia. They have already about  40 little girls and 70 little boys.  While working on the front I have  seen deserted and demolished villages which are constantly under  fire. The ohly things left alive are  these children whose parents are  either dead or taken prisoners. The  poor little beggars run about like  wild animals, subsisting on what  they find, terrified of-any one. After  a few days'of peaceful life they regain their trust and become what  they originally were, quick, courageous and upstanding. They have  implicit and unshaken faith in the  English and everything British.  Those who have already been instructed have quite got the ideal  They are efficient and thorough  scouts in every detail.  These children are absolutely  destitute, thev have no clothes or  food. They ate now concentrated  in a village called Vodena and they  are there housed, fed and clothed ;  they are also taught school by voluntary help and en efficient scoutmaster is training Serbians to keep  up the movement. The whole  future ofthe nation depends on the  way such children are brought up.  It is up to us to make them friends  of the allies with allied conception  of truth and duty.  This work depends entirely on  voluntary help, as all the governments are too busy to give attention  to side issues. We who are scouts  and realize the benefit of the movement would ask if it would be possible for the boy scouts of Canada  to help. Even five cents goes a  long way when many give. Would  it be possible for you to authorize  and organize a collection from all  the boy scouts in Canada, forwarding the money collected to Major  M. Popovitch, Commandant, Anglo  Serbian Hospital, Vodena, S, P.  999, Salonique.   ...  A little bov who was in our Hospital had stolen a gun and fought  when his mother was taken away  by the Germans and was brought  to the hospital riddled with shrapnel He is now quite well and one  of the keenest scouts. I remain,  yours very truly, (sd ) Scoutmaster  L. J. Whitehead."

Kelowna from  Penticton the fog became so dense  as to make it impossible to see  more than a few yards ahead, and  the steersman apparently lost his  bearings,for when the mist rolled  away as it did in a very short time  the boat was revealed firmly wedged on the sand bank near the  mouth of Mill Creek. Things looked pretty bad for a time but after  an hour or so of swinging, and  wripgling and- puffing, the boat  finally swung clear and made for  the wharf.

Foundation For First-  Class Herd  The following are some details  of the breeding and capabilities of  the pure bred Holstein stock recently brought in by the Kelowna Land  and Orchard Co., and are given as  of possible interest to dairy farmers of the district :���  The young bull "Colony Wadmantje  DeKol" was dropped in July |9l7,andwM  the sixth calf of his famous mother Wadmantje Canary, which as a heifer made  31.38 lbs. of butter in one week from  644. 6 lbs of milk, thus setting a record  for Canada for four year olds at that time*  During this period she made a record of  performance test of 16712, and 781.25 lbs.  of butter in 365 days. Since then at 5  years and 4 months the m de 33 lbs. of  butter from 552.6 lbs. of milk, in 30 days  123.95 !bs. from 2755.4 lbs. of milk, and in  120 days 433.27 lbs. of butter from 10232.-  3 lbs. of milk. After these records were  made she was kept breeding every year in  order to get as much progeny as possible.
