 W\oXcrcn:Ovrti\  Mttrnfo  m  VOL. VUI.  NO. 15.  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY. MARCH 2. 1916���6 PAGES  $1 JO Par Annum  ss  Short Meeting of  City Council  "For Belgium's Sake"  Contracts Let for Further Supplies of Fuel for Power House  The oity council held a meeting last  Friday morning but there was little  business to transact.  The city olerk submitted (or ratilioa-  tion agreements which had been pie-  pared between the city and .1. Cope  land and A. Kaymer for tlie supply oi  260 cotds ol wood each, and wim C.  Ambrogio lor the supply ol T.YJ corda.  Also a lease agreement with Ut. H.L  A. Keller, .for the use ol th* m.inVi-  pal otlices for a term of three years at  SIS per month.  The ^agreements were approved and  ordered to be signed.  In discussing the question of tne  fuel supply it waB stated that there  was considerable uncertainty as to an  adequate supply of fuel for the power  house,, and it was therefore decided to  make, arrangements with the Max  Jenkins Co., for the supply of 1000  cords of green wood at ��1.00 per cord  on condition that "the company gave  an undertaking to kesp the city sup-  . plied with wood.  A matter dealing with the remuneration of Mr. Hill for special work during the installation of* an electric unit  at the power house, was submitted to  the council for consideration by the  Light and Water committee. Alderman  Sutherland explained that when the  other plants were installed the city  had to send to the coast for an expert to do the wirn^, ul^lu o'Hlay  of approximately $300. In the case  under consideration they hud expected  it would be necessary to Hend to the  coast for a man to do this special  work as previously but Mr- Hill hud  informed the committee that he was  capable of" doing the work and was  willing to do it, but pointed" out that  as this was not the work lor which  he bad been, employed, he thought the  city should grant him ��� �� n js of from  fl^J&O to 8100. The committee had instructed Mr. Hill to do the work and  had told him that the question ol a  bonus would be considered by the  couneU.  After some discussion it was decided  to grant Mr. Hill ��� bonus of S50 lor  the service rendered.  The council decided to recommend  that the insurance onVthc public school  buildings be reduced to the amount  of the debenture charges against the  building. ...   .

The girl's hand is also sought  by Bergmann, a German spy, who by  means of clever forgeries estranged the  couple. War broke out, the town  is seized and-to Bave ten leading oiti-  from being shot, Morval sacrifices his life.- A reconciliation with tho  girl, her father and Morval iB brought  about at the okeventh hour by the disclosure of the life and forgeries of  Bergmann.  This in brief is the plot ot Mr. Wilson McDonald's drama, which drew  good crowds on Tuesday and Wednesday nights.  Whilst not complicated or unusually  deep the [.lay was a severe test lor  the hiBtrionio capabilitier oi the amateur company who, except for a slight  touch of stage fright at the outset  come through exceedingly well.  Whilst, no doubt tho high'y dramatic  fourth act appealed to a large part  of the audience the author has placed  the 'soul of the piece in the second act,  in which Emil Rostande (Mr. Grant  Ferrier) and Andrees Morval (Mr.iW.  McDonald) have a long and somewhat  tedious argument in the course of  which Morval beautifully expressed the  now accepted theory that the tiue  patriot holds his life as the second  dearest thing to him and that of his  fellow's firflt. Whilst Rostande vainly endeavorB to eulogise the philosophies of Nietzsche, which may be ory-  stallized into the slogan "Might iB  right." Messrs. McDonald and Ferrier are both too well known to local  theatre goers to call for mention here.  Mr. Joseph Beale, as Bergemann was  a rara avis,. and the masterly manner  in which he impersonated a brutal  German ollicer won the applause of  all. Miss P. Pitt as Anna Valcartier  by whose aid he hatched the plot, calculated, to bring the love affair ol  MSrval to naught, earned her laurels  a short time ago in "In Sunny France  She possessed an air of confidence on  the stage which materially aided her.  Her voice was also heard to advantage in the solo: "The Little Fighting  Isle." an original composition of Mr.  McDonald.  Miss Mabel French made her debut  in the very difficult role of Uouda Rostande. Her acting in some of tlie  dramatic poses was very capable, while  her peroration on love wna exceedingly well rendered.  Messrs. H. Graeme and H. H. Millie  appeared to be quite at home as lling  and Bang���hoboes, and their humorous loquacity greatly stimulated . the  audience. Their nonsense and joviality contrasted very much with the  demeanor of the inevitable ''hired ruffian" Gardd (Mr. George Francis) who  well sustained his ignominious patt as  cat'B paw for the spy Bergmann.  'Miss Jean Kincaid as Marie made, a  pretty servant, lacking that stolid look  so often found on the stnge domestic  Miss M. Millie, Miss Una DeHart and  Mr. W. M. Edwards all appeared but  for a short period, essential, however,  to the successful Btaging of the play  and their acting well deserved the  applause.  Considering thc short period that  was given to rchearB'ng tho cast produced the drama very thoroughly. The  proceeds are to be divided between  tho hospital, the Canadian Patriotio  Fund and the Red Cross society.  Lectures on Fruitgrowers'  The Vancouver Market, Storing, Pre-Cooling and Standardization of Fruit Packages are Subjects Dealt With  We regret to learn of the serious illness of Mr. H. W. Rnymer, who has  been held to his room for some time  with asthma. This week his illness  took a serious turn and the closest  medical care became necessary. Latest  report states that he is improving  .lightly.  Lost of Red Cross At Homes  Tho girl's laBt Hed Cidrs "At Home'  held in Morrison's Hall, February 17,  was a decided Huccess, in Bpite of a  smaller turn out than usual. The  girls wish to I hunk all those who  helped in any way to make it so auo-  cesxful. Special thnnkB,are due the  following who bo kindly helped with  the muBic: Miss Alice Fisher, Mr. H.  Tod Boyd, Mr. W. Parker, MiBs K.  Lloyd-Jones, Mr. Quinn, and Mr. Wilson MacDoneld. This ended the winter series, but by special request they  will give an "At Ilome" cm similar  lines before the boys of the overseas  force leave, far thoir summer training  camp. The date will be announced  later. Out of the total receipts of  150 , total of $31.25 was handed to  the Hed Cross Funds. It might be  mentioned that this was the fifth  '���At Home" which the t?irls have organized for the Hed Cross funds, whicb  have that benefitted to the exten'  I1W.30.  Three very important* subjects were'  discussed on Monday at Rutland and  East Kelowna at meetings of fruit  growers held in connection with . the  Farmers' Institute and B. C. Fruit  Grower's' Associations; that of cold  storage of fruits, markets and the beat  means of marketing and standardization of fruit packages. Never, perhaps, have questions of more vital importance to the welfare of the fruit  growers been dealt with. The fact  that the trees are coming into bearing  in increasing numbers has brought  these problems more to the front end,  given them an importance that cannot  be overlooked.  The speakers were fir. H. 0. Abbott,  CoaHt Market Commission* of Vancouver, whose subject was "Coast Markets and their value to the grower."  Mr. A. H. Flack, Chief Fruit Inspector for the prairie provinces who dealt  with the standardization of fruit packages, and Mr. Edwin Smith, of Grimsby who spoke on pre-cooling and cold  storage of fruits. The meeting at  the Rutland school house was. presided  over by Mayor Jones of Kelowna.  Mr. Smith who was the first speaker said he could not understand -why  fruit growers in British Columbia  should worry about the future of their  markets, Beeing the large natural market {they had, provided they kept that  market protected. In the case of apples in 1915, up to the end of November, Canada imported from the United  States 1280 carloads of apples, very  nearly an much aa the Okanagan Valley produced, in addition to what we  ourselves placed there on the prairies.  After November 30th Canada imported  a great many apples from those points  in the States where they had storage. Canada paid out two millions  of dollars for fruit such as she raises  herself, in addition to citrous fruits,  so that fruit growers should not lackr  encouragement for the future. He  called attention to the population of  the three prairie provinces. Ten years  ago the population was 1,322,000 and  it was reasonable to suppose that in  1921 the population of thtee three provinces would be two and a half millions. During the past season ihe  prairies imported over 1900, carloads  of kuit alone. In 1921 this would be  greatly increased if Canada did not  get busy and capture that market. B.  C. growers would have to grow fruits  that    would    satisfy    them  When mature fruit was picked from  the tree it had a certain given life to  live before the cells broke down and  died, the same as the cells in our  bodies died. It had been found that  that process varied according to the  temperature of the air by which the  fruit was surrounded. When the temperature was lowered the process of  decay was checked but was never stopped. Thus the fsuit placed in cold  storage would not last indefinitely because ripening waB going on there just  as it did in the cellar. Fruit should  be placed in a lower temperature as  soon after picking as possible. Al*  though it might not be possible to  see tho ripening processes that were  decaying the apples underneath thi  skin because the apple waB holding up  in appearance; nevertheless each hour  spent in a warm atmosphere shortened  its life to a great exttnt. They should  put apples in Btorage immediately after picking in a temperature of 30 or  32 degrees its far as possible and bold  that temperature oven. The air  the storage place should be dry. Mr.  Smith regretted to find that there were  practically no cold Btorag�� facilities in  the Okanagan nt the present time.  Jtfost of the Okanagan apples were  placed immediately on tho market notwithstanding the fact that the markets would continue to demand apples  along through March and April.  Cold storage waB essential to apple  growers if they were to take full advantage of the markets and secure the  best prevailing prices.  One of the difficulties in the way of  providing cold storage was the expense of construction, because such  buildings to be of any use at all,  must be well built and calculated to  do efficient service.   Otherwise growers  had better keep away from them.  The Dominion government at the  present time were endeavoring to encourage the construction of cold storage buildings by granting a subsidy of  30 per oent of the cost. This of course  applied only to plants intended for  public use. Assistance was only given  to one plant in each place, and no  subsidy was granted to private firm*.  Although large properly equipped  cold storage pints were highly desirable, yet a great deal could be  done with small individual farm cooling and storage houses. Mr. Smith  described by means of blackboard  .sketches a suggested plan for such a  building, which with a capacity according to size of from three to ten  carloads of apples could be erected at  very small expense. In the fall when  the rush was on and growers .had to  gat their apples off the trees, to avoid  dumping them hastily on the market  they could place them in such a storage, where they would be cooled and  kept in condition until late in the year  when they could be packed up and  shipped as required. As a result better prices would be obtained, and he  believed that a great saving could be  effected to the community generally.  Mr. Smith was closely questioned as  to the details of the Btorage suggested  and in conclusion reminded his hearers that as the prices realized for  fruit largely depmded upon the condition in which it reached the market,  it was essential tint it be handled at  all stages with very great care and  protected from any chance of damage,,  and it must abo be kept cool from  the time it was picked to the time it  was -j laced in the hands of the consumer.  In reply to Mayor Jones as to the  size and cost of a building such  he had described, Mr. Smith said one  of the best -n the province was at  Keremeos where a large grower had  had one for several years on the same  principle he hid been outlining. His  buBd'ng was 30 x 40 feet and heldfiv-e  cars of fruit. It had cost $1500. The  storage of his fruit was saving him  money every year.  The Vancouver Market.  Mr. Smith, whose remarks were listened to with very great interest waB  followed by Mr. Abbott, who dealt  with the coast markets and their value to the growers of this valley. The  subject was certainly a very important one and more important now than  in past years. They had had many  problems of production, but he thoaght  that of distribution was the most  vital. The markets had been there  but they had not had the proper distribution. Flac:n�� thr products of the  farm and orchard before the public  demanded proper shippim at 'he right  times. In 1915 he had spent most  of his time on wholesale Row hi Vancouver trying to assist in the distribution of their products,and trying to  help the producer to get the best value  from the wholesale trade. He tried  to put the dollars and oents into the  producer's pocket and at the same  time shorten the distance between the  producer and consumer. The market  had! been hindered by the large margins in the wholesale1 and retail trade.  His work, he said, was to increase the  sales and consumption of B. C. products and decrease the consumption of  imported products in the coast cities.  They had to start early in the spring  last year to try to educate the consumer to buy B.C. products, He had  appealed to their patriotism and also  to their pocketism. Where in 1914  29,219 crates of B. C. strawberries  were sold in Vancouver, with 63,481  crates imported from America, in 1915  they were able to market 31.080 crates  with imports of only 6,710 crates,  which showed an increase of 6.7 per  cent, of our own products. The decrease in sales generally he pointed out  was due to the great decrease in population in greater Vancouver of somewhere around 50,000. They were away  short in their supplies and many con  sumers were waiting for strawberries  Enormous German Losses  The enormous German offensive whioh  has been in progress around Verdun  for the past week remains still a matter of doubt and conjecture. In spite  of the German claim to'have captured  Fort Douamant and made several other advances on the town, the French  are, still reported to be perfectly confident of their ability to hold them  back. Nearly three quarters of a million men have been massed by the  enemy and poured in an almost resistless flood against the French defences,  but so far at any rate the chief result  has been an almost unbelievable slaugh  tor of the German infantry. The  Frenoh have voluntarily retired to a  stronger line of defence, and have an  abundance of reinforcements and supporting artillery. It is stated that  nearly 30,000 Germans have been killed during the past few* days, while  it is claimed that the Allies losses  have been insignificant in comparison.  Meanwhile the Russians are still  pushing their striking successes against  the Tarks, who are reported to be retiring in confusion before them. The  Russians have also Commenced , to  bring heavy pressure to bear upon the  Teuton's eastern lines, which may  serv0 t0 offset the enemy's struggle in  the west.  The impression seems al?o to le  afloat that the German fleet may follow up the activity of the land forces  with a dash from cover.  Referendum on Prohibition  Premier Bowser has made the announcement that a prohibition bill  based upon that in Manitoba would  be introduced at the coming session,  and submitted for the endorsation of  the people at the coming election.0 If  the measure passes It will become law  at the beginning ol next year.  The young ladies are busy now gathering together the "Houeewifei"  which are to be presented to each of  the boys of the overseas contingent.  During four afternoon; th? past week  the town was canvassed for ladies  willing to make them bv Miss R. Watt  Miss F. Perry, Hiss E. Thompson, Miss  Opal Thompson, Miss M. Wilson, Miss  E. Langille and Miss A. McMillan. So  many ladies were out however when  the girls called that thev have decided  to ask any who were missed to call  in at Lawson's store where they oan  get all particulars. Nearly ��� hundred  of these useful articles have been promised, but there is still need for a  number yet. Ladies who are making  them are asked to hand them in to  Lawson's store by March 7th.  The somewhat sensational result of  the Vancouver bye-election and the  overwhelming defeat of the government  candidate was the chief topic of conversation the early part of the week.  The figures were M. A. Maodonald,  9592; Tisdale, 5432; and Taylor 194.  There was a record vote of 15,356,  somewhat curious fact in view of the  reduction of population during the  past year or two.  The' Hon. Mr. Tisdall's resignation  has been placed in lhe hands of tho  premier.  In Rosslan 1 thero was also a three-  cornered1 fight resulting in the election  of the Hon. Lome Campbell bv a majority of 9. The votes were; Hon.  Lome Campbell, 331; Mayor Wilson,  322; W. W. Lefaux (Soc.) 49.  All eyes are now turned with interest to Victoria, where another fight  is to be staged between the Hon, A.  0. Flumerfelt, Minister of Finance and  Agriculture, and Mr. BrewBter, the  former liberal leader....  Farmers' Banquet  '    ,    /  Large Gathering Responds to  Invitation of Farmers' and  Women's Institutes  (Cu astasia ��� rem U  BIRTHS  SNOWSELL.-On Saturday, February  12th to Mr. and Mrs. H. Snowsell,  a daughter.  TAYLOR.~On Tuesday, February \26th  to Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Taylor, a  son.  ADAMS.���On Thursday, Maroh 9nd,  to Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Adams, a  daughter.  (Last weak owing to the vagaries of  the telephone, and possibly to our  lack of inside information due to being  just ��� mere man, th�� first name of the  above lint was incorrectly rendered  "Snashnll." We humbly, abjectly,  apologiaal)  There was a large and enthueiasric  response to the generally issued invitation to the first annual banquet in  connection with the Farmer' Institute  and Women's Institute held in Morri- .  son's Hall on Thursday evening hut.  The hall had been tastefully decorated  with bunting and the tables were loaded down with good things.  The banquet was planned primarily  i a general get-togetner social gathering for the farmers of the district.  The idea was certainly a very laudable one and calculated to foster a  better mutual understanding, as a ,  necessary condition to closer cooperation for the general good. The attendance as stated was large, nearly  250 people sitting down to the generous fare provided. There was a large  proportion of Iowns people present. Although any resident of the district was  heartily welcomed, it waB generally regretted thafthe farmers had not come  forward in greater numbers, 'As this  is to be an annual event no doubt  this will be remedied next year.  Mr. L. E. Taylor, president of the  Farmers' Institute, made a genial  chairman, and after good inroads had  been made into the eatables, during  which ceremony, Messrs. H. Tod Boyd  and Drury Pryce delighted the guests  with a feast of good music, ending up  with the well known favorites "Soldiers of the King," and "Rule Brit-  tania" in the choruses of which all  heartily joined, the toast of "The  'King" was duly honored in the customary way.  Mr. Taylor explained they were going to limit the speech-making as  much as possible, but this fact did not  .prevent the banquet lasting to nearly  twelve o'clock. He read letters of  apology from Mr .W. E. Scott, the  Deputy Minister of Agriculture, Hon.  Mr. Flumerfelt, Dr. Wesbrook, Principal of the B. C. University, Dr. Rutherford and others who were unable to  be present through force of circumstances. They had he said about 240  people there that night which was a  very good Btart. Next year they hoped to have 500. Mr. Taylor'detailed  the work that had been done during  the past year by the Farmers' Institute, and explained that whereas in  1914 they had 88 members,. last year  they had 214 which was the second  highest membership in the province.  This year they were going to make  a great effort to have the largest in  the province nnd endeavor to win the  government prize of HO for the biggest membership.  He dealt with ins' weeds question and  evoked mu'ih laughter by reminding  his audience that the government itself was the worst offender as the  road at Glenmore was covered* with  Russian thistle. He urged the importance of tackling this nuisance energetically. During the past year a  reading room had been started for the  farmers and had bean made use ol by  them to a considerable extent. They  had a library of 60 bookB and xven  going to make them a feature of the  institute. He then called on Mayor  Jones to address the gathering.  Mayor Jones spoke briefly and dealt  with the increasing amount of fruit  and produce that had been grown in  the district during the past year, he  said Kelowna was certainly doing her  part in tho supplying of'tho Empire  with the necessities of life..  Mr. L. V. Rogers spoke on behalf  of the Women's Institute. He referred  in appreciative terms to i\e work of  this Institute and said that at the  present time there were at least two-  very important questions, facing th?m;  the war and production. The first  included the second, but that was no  reason why they should neglect the  productive industry of our province. It  was all tho more reason why they  should get busy and see if they could  not ado something to develop the agricultural industries of the province at  the present time. Mr. Rogers spoke  of the motto of the Women's Institute  "For Home and Country" and urged  the importance and need for intelligent  home training.  Judge Swanson, who was hi the city  in connection with the sitting* of tlas  County Court, entertained his hearers PAGE TWO  KELOWNA   RECORD  THURSDAY, MARCH 2. 1916  KELOlfliNH RECORD  Published every Thuraday at Kelowna,  British Columbia  JOHN LKATHLEY  Editor and Proprietor  <S$l  *- SUBSCRIPTION   RATES  f 1 ."iii    per   year;    75c,    iix    months.   l'nit��d  St��te�� SO cents additional.

Ho never expected  the people to pay ��fK). The reason  for the big price was that tha great  bulk of the onions had been taken up  by the evaporators anl there had oeen  ifo imports from Spain und Texas. The  people on the o^her side had been putting up their price 25 cents a day.  The Oregon and Washington -market  was w nut govern* d tho Van soiwer  market, In the spring they were paying 22 cents per sack and some of  those onions were in the basements of  wholesale row and some of them were  growing 12 to 11 incheS-Jiigh.

The potato situation was also dealt  with. Over 9,668 tons of 15.

C, apples  were used, and this was increased to  133/130 in 1-H5. Vancouver consumed  almost half as many apples aB the  growers produced in the Okanagan  valley, yet more thun half nf... the apples consumed oamo from tho American side in 1916. Th? people of the  ver but the public were not educated Okanagan valley had to give special  to the*smltll size. They preferred the'attention to the apple industry in  large size.'

Standardization of 1'Vuil  Packages  A    most   interesling  and  instructive  address was that  of Mr. Flack,     who  'spoke of the need of hetler standardization of  fruit  packages.     This  matter had been before the conferences' of  fruit growers     during  thi> past  years,  but unfortunately ow'n ���; to confl cling  opinions noth'ng hid been, done.   Our  package situation was in a condition1  of chaos and he wished to impress upon them  the: necessity of coming     to  some undersptttding in regard to   the  matter.     Standardization meant that  they select  what   Ui'y considered      Ih ���  best apple box     or orate and     other  small packages and make that- {l standard to which all shippers would    adhere.       At thc present time they hud  in   II.   C,   two   apple  boxes,  ono      was  the box used    for export 10 x 11 x20  inches  and   the  other  was  thc  Oregon  box    lOi x Hi s    IH inches,     which  was largely used in the Okanagan, Of  the peach box they had tw(, sizes, one  the II inch and another lTj inches in  width.     Their  1-basket  crate too was  in a very unsettled state.     In  -< n vernation    with box  makers he had been  told    they     were   manufacturing  seven  distinct     types of berry crates.     'lhe  reasons for inducing the shippers     to  come to some understanding on     this  important  question were (I) the chaotic slate of the package question     at  the pnseol dn\- (2) the opportunity existing with th,. different sized packages  for price cutting,   (.1)  ns  a protective  measure   ugu'mt   the  importation      of  fruit     in     packages  other  them  those  adopted   by   us  and   (t)   to   encourage  Bales  f.o.b.,  shipping point   and     cut  niitshipnn nt   on Consignment,    On the  markets the effect of the different sizes  was to reduce the prireVn the larger  packages    to  lhe level of the smaller  packages     and     never   to  elevate  the  price of the smaller to the larger. The  larger price that would result, through  standardization would obviously be of  advantage  to  the    producer.    During  the season there were introduced     on  the prairie markets -U inch peach boxes used for prunes by our competitors  in   Washington.      B.  ('.   shippers when  shipping prunes in peach boxes invariably used    thc   l-in^h package.     This  was fairly    satisfactory and identical  with peach 'boxes used by our competitors in  MM'l.    With the introduction  'however of th ��� .i.l-incli packages Washington    "growers    were able to quote  lower    prices, thus    possessing an advantage over those who were shipping  in the 1-inch packages.     It was tt But>  prisoing    fact     that both wholesalers  and retailers wore unable to     obtain  more for   the   1-inch than for-the 3J-  Inah package.     To housewives     purchasing prunes, it  was just a box . ol  prunes and if more were asked for tho  i-inch than th- .li-inch they would invariably    purchase the 3 J-inch,1    .thus  giving  preference  to competing      fruit.  The only  manner in which this condition    t'oruld be mot was |>>  our     own  shippers adopting the -U-iiieh package.  That     was  practically  impossible     ir  l.MI as boil material hid already been  purchased,  but   in   UH5 some shippers  (Continued on  Pnn* B.,  f2Je!fEfi2Je!Jel^^  Random Remarks!

ANNUAL FARMERS' BANQUET  (Continued from Page One./.  with an extremely witty address   fall  of good anecdotes.  Mr. R. JT. Carruthers spoke briefly  on behalf of the Board of Trade, and  was followed by Mr. Moore, superintendent of the \ government farm at  Agassiz, who in alluding to the starting of the Kelowna creamery last year  said the farmers had done one of the  [meat things that any fruit growing  district had over done in Canada.  There was a place for the dairy in  any fruit district und1 news of Kelow-  na's    doingB had  been  spread  abroad  and had encouraged other older districts to go in for the creamery business too. He would starve to death  ���on the best fruit ranch there was in  B. C, as he knew nothing about the  business, but any man who could take  a liking to Hve stock should go- frn for  them and supporc the local industry  which, as far as he could see, had  every possible advantage with the  exception of monetary support. Speaking of the marketing problems he.said  the whole thing m the agricultural  proposition was marketing. In the  dairy bunim��ss they could beat th$ fellows from the other side and New Zealand, and could put a product on the  market that B. 0. people would take  in preference t0 any outside thing, (applause). If they had1 that let them  stand by it. If they could only make  a small start let them give the industry their support. From what he had  seen in Kelowna district he had come  to the conclusion that they could grow  everything a cow needs. .  Mr. R. A. Copeland nest spoke for  the Agricultural Association, and was  followed by the Hon. Price Ellison,  who gave a brief talk in a reminia-  cent vein and amused his hearers with  yarns of the early days in the valley,  and the first settlers.  Dealing with tho patriotism and production campaign he said the idea appealed to everyone, but there ought  to be something done to bring about  better prices. In war times ithere were  usually war prices, but th0se last year  wero ruination prices. Mr. Ellison  spoke in appreciative terms abouit the  local creamery and was delighted to  know that Mr. Moore was pleased with  it because he knew what he was talking about. There was no place in the  world where the productiveness of the  soil was so great with so little-labor  as there was in the Okanagan.  Mr. English of the Soil and Crop Department spoke of the work of mixed  farming and the field crop competitions and Mr. Hilborn of the Experimental Farm at Summerland among  other things said that in a distriot  where they had such valuable land for  cultivation as there was around Kelowna, there should be much more  dairying than there was at present.  There was not nearly enough mixed  farming done and tho people who were  tilling the soil were not producing  nearly as many things for their own  tablcB as thoy should. That was ono  of the reasons whv thev had not had  better succoss.  Mr. Clark, fruit inspector paid a  tribute to thc work of the late Mr.  Cunningham, and Mr. M. Hereron  brought the lot of speakers to an  end by replying on behalf of the ladies.  Not lhe least enjoyable part of the  evening's entertainment was the excellent program of music contributed  by Miss Francis Pearson and Miss  Phyllis Pitt (so'os); Mrs. GreenBted  (v\plin); Miss Dilworth and Miss E.  Jones (pianoforte duet); Messrs. Geo.  S. McKenzie and F. Pedlar (songs);  Mr. Drury Pryce (violin); and Mr. H.  Tod Boyd  (piano).

Hints for ' Boatman Scouts.��� The  first thing to see is that a boat is  properly equipped before going out in  her; If possible, there should be an  extra pair of' rowlocks and oarB. The  rowlocks in use should be secured by  pieces of strong twine so thai if they  jump overboard they will" not be loBt.  If there are plug holes there should be  two plugs for each plug hole, also secured by twine, and you should see  that the plug.is firmly in before starting. You want also a bailer���that is  a vessel for bailing-^-a painter (rope  attached to the .bow of- the boat for  towing or making fast with), boat  hook, grapnel, which is a small anchor with four or more claws, ---and  stretches, i.e., pieces of wood against  which the feet are placed when rowing. So.far as possible, do everything  in a boat sitting, ��� if you can't sit,  ljneel. When entering a boat from. a  landing stage don't step on the gunwale (side) but straight down onto the  floor or on to tho middle of the  thwart (seat). Similarly when leaving  a boat, avoid stepping on the guh-  waje. If entering a boat from the  waiter, do so over the stern, not over  the gunwale, ' or you will probably  capsize the boat.  LECTURES ON FRUITGROWERS'  MARKETING PROBLEMS  (Continued from Page Three)  Shortly after Mr. Challenor,. the late  secretary of our local association left  Kelowna, some correspondence oaniu to  him from��� headquarters at Victoria,  and as he was away, this correspondence did not come to our hands until a very long time afterwards. One  of these letters was from Mr. Heneage,  notifying us that His Honor, the Lieutenant Governor, would be in Kelowna to open the fall1 fair, and that he  had expressed a wish to inspect our  troop of Boy Scouts. We did not  know anything of this request of His  Honor's, but at the request of the  fair executive arranged to provide a  Court of Honor for him on his ar^  rival in Kelowna. .Everything has  since been oxplained by His Honor,  and he expressed himself as very much  pleased with the Guard of Honor provided for him, but if we had known (.  his previous request, we should of  course havfl had a muster of the whole  troop.  Another delayed letter waa one from  Victoria with regard to a Boy Scout  ambulance appeal. At the beginning  of the war, the Scouts provided an  ambulance for service at the front, but  in the course of time naturally the ambulance beoame "war worn and weary'  and it was necessary to have it replaced by a new one. Our Chief Scout  therefore issued an appeal to every  Boy Scout, in the Empire, in which he  requested eash one to earn ten cents  by his own hands, which would be>  turned into and go towards providing  this new ambulance. This appeal was  issued in September last, but1 we only  heard it' last month, so under the oir-  auinstances, our troop council derided  to vote $5.00 of the troop funds to*  wards this worthy object. 'Hub Bum  has been forwarded to headquarters  at Victoria and we are in receipt of a  letter from them thanking us very  smich for the subscription. As the appeal for the ambulance ,1ms lieen oversubscribed, the extra funds are going;  towards furnishing Rest Huts for tho  soldiers in France.  v In a recent letter which wo have received from Mr. Heneage, in speaking  of the inspection by Colonel Wineby at  Penticton in July InBt, he stated that  the Colonel had mentioned' to him  that he had been especially pie*.sod  with the appearance and discipline- of  the Kelowna troop. Let us try to  live up to this. *  ���      ���    . ���  CuniOSITY SATISFIED  An enquiring man thrust his fingers into a horse's mouth to s*e how  many teeth it had, and the horse  closed it's mouth to see how many  fingers the man had.  The curiosity of esoh was faHy  satisfied.���(Scout).  Sphinx  used the 3^-inch package and were  able to under quote those using the  i-inoh box. The result was to tsb-  duce the price of the 1-inch box to  that of the 3J,-inch. The same condition existed in our berry crate. The  season of 1914 witnessed the introduction of the 24 pint berry crate from  Washington. The hallooks in this  paokage contained 33.6 cubic inches  compared with 55.5 cubic Ticnes in  the 4-5th pack generally used in B,C>  In other words our package was approximately two-fifths larger than  that of our competitors. It was very  reasonable to expect that fruit packed  in this manner would sell for two-  filths more than the imported deep  pint paokages. Ab a matter of fact  tho -l-5ths crates sold lor the same  as the 24 deep pint. In very "few instances 25 cents more was realized  which was certainly not in proportion  to the increased bulk. It was impossible for us to take advantage of this  package in 1944, but in 1915 many  berry shippers i ^ed it with excellent  results. It was therefore obvious that  as far as it concerned this province  the 24 deep pint crate should.be used  for all purposes where thc 4-5ths had  been used previously. Our 4-basket  crate had often been criticized, especially our plum package and this  was in many oases1 justified. We had  on the market at the present time  four distinct sizea of tin tops. * It  would be a great advantage to atand-  ize one. After careful investigation  He thought the tin top measuring 7*  ��J7'3 at the top and 6J x 64 at the  bottom and 3f-inches deep accommodated in a crate 4 .J inches in depth  would-be the best ono to use, If this  package were standardized it would,be  ���a big factor in overcoming the criticisms which existed in competition  with our competitors and would assist us considerably.  In, the standardization of fruit (Stick  ages they should endeavor to obtain  as many 'as possible of the' same width  and length. This wHs nn important  point as it permitted of more economy  in manufacture, as bos mills utilized  material that wouls otherwise be  watted, Then there would be the  greater Convenience in loading mixed  cars and in warehousing shook. The  same covers und cleats would possibly  do for several packages. With these  points in mind he would suggest that  the Oregon box, 10* x 11J x 18 be  standardized. That the peach box  IH x 13 be the one adopted. Regarding pear boxes he suggested the  one 114 -v 18 x 11.J, By this arrangement it would he seen that in each  case the length and width of package  would both be tha same with accompanying advantages. Regarding the  apple crates, he did not, see any reason why the crates should be any  larger than the apple boxes,\ and suggested that they be the same size if  for no. othor reason than to have tha  package the same length and breadth.  Last year they, had five distinot aPl>h-'  crates which naturally resulted in confusion to the wholesale trade, retailer  and consumer. In conversation with  the trade he found that there was not  a great deal to be said in favor of  any one bo* or package or criticizing  of the others, but it was obvious that  shippers should get together and have  one sized apple crate'.  In reply to questions, Mr. Flack did  not think it would bo wise for B. C.  to go into the barrel business at all.  The barrel markets were Manitoba,  eastern Saskatchewan: western Saskatchewan and Alberta preferred the box.  Thero was no question but that the  apple box was getting mor,. into favor  in Ontario. The crate package was  in the experimental stage nnd thero  was not one of them who could say  what the future of the package was.  Neither were they able to Bay whether  it would be3a success or not. If they  packed the crutes as they did last, year  they would soon go out of existence.  In regard to the strawberry business  his own opinion was that it was a  carload industry* Assuming that  these packages were alt standardized  there was yet another very important  point. Some markets preferred fruit  packed in different packages and it  required a little study during the son-  son of the wholesale trad0 of the prairie provinces. Their competitors liid  (his'nnd obtained an advantage over  us. But even with all this there was  unip element they had against tho trade  generally���the independent shipper. It  was with him they had the most trouble as he cut into the markets and  consignid wherever he got a chance and  so damaged thc markets.  In tho evening the samo speakers  addressed a similar meeting on thc  K. L. 0 bench, leaving the following  iijorning for tho Centre.  J.

A professional crook, into whose hands one oi  these Instruments has fallen, uses it  \ith deadly effect, after first having  demonstrated Us practicability by  breaking a vase wilh it without any  sound whatsoever. The common use  of the Maxim -silencer was prohibited  by government laws, as by.ita use  crimes can ho committed which would  almost eliminate the probability o  capture. The on'y sound heard when  this attachment is placed upon a revolver is a slight click of tho hammer  as it falls upon the cartridge. The  danger was readily seen by the government, and its suppression arranged  for at once. There is a plan on foot  to arm a brigade of United States Infantry with guns upon which the sil-  encer has been fixed, 'lhe elimination  of both smoke and noise would make  it absolutely impossible for an enemy  lo locate the position of this army.  OlVicers or an,- one interested will have  an opportunity, upon the day on  which "Within the Taw" is played in  this city, to examine and sec demon  strated thc Maxim silencer,  , The play will be produced at the  Opera House, one niuht. on'y, Wednesday, March o"th.
