Though the list has been prepared with the very greatest  care yet it is felt quite likely that sums errors have crept in or  names been omitted, and it will be esteemed a favor if anyone  having knowledge of such will at once communicate with Principal Gordon with a view to having them rectified.  Included in the list will be found lhe names of two former  teachers ot the school, viz , Lieut. McDonald and J. 1.

It appeared from  the evidence that the deceased boy and  his younger brother Albert wore playing with a raft alongside the car slip,  and Frank attempted to cross .over lo  the sandbank close by. He drifted  out into deeper water and finally fell  off the raft. Wheu he saw what had  happened, Albert, who iB only four  years old, ran to meet two older boys  who had gone flpwh town to buy pome  candies. Max Jenkins nnd W. Kirkby  ��� wore at work unloading a car on the  siding near by, nnd when thc boys  made them understand what had happened,    they    at  Manual Training in  the Public Schools  Mr. John Kyle Lectures on the  Need of Industrial Training of Children  "Mauual Training" in tbe public  schools was,the subject of au instructive address delivered last Friday (.'Veiling in the auditorium of the school,  by Mr. John Kyle, organizer of technical education under thu Provincial  Department of Education. There was  a considerable attendance and there  is, no doubt that Mr. Kyle's remarks  and the lantern views of tehnicul  schools and classes in various parts of  tho world, helped to make clearer to  many the real aim and object of the  nee ran down and ! special    " Manual    Training    und Do-  jk    oi   every   one of us, but particularly I  now    when we are training the   boys  of i to-day   to take the places    of the  thousands of splendid youths who are j  so     nobly    sacrificing    themselves for  pensation    should be included in  Bill.

The question on the Prohibition referendum is: "Are you in favor of bring-  in the British Columbia Prohibition  "Aot into force?" and the question in  the other case is: "Are you in favor of  tho extention of tne electoral franchise  to women?" The words "Yes" and  "No" are to be printed on each ballot  and the elector will mark a cross opposite the answer he wishes fio give.  There will be four scrutineers on the  Prohibition question, two each from  the Prohibition party and the Merchants' Protective Association.  The Soldiers' Voto bill was Introduced into the House Tuesday. It  R-iccifieB that every soldier from British Columbia who haB resided in the  province for six months prior to enlistment shall have a vote. His vote  will bo for tho riding in which he re-  aided prior to enlistment. The Agent-  General will appoint a presiding officer  for a poll at each military oamp in the  United Kingdom, and at each hospital  and if practicable at each poll which  may be established at the front in  France, Belgium, and elsewhere. In  short, all British Columbia soldiers on  duty, no matter where they are, will  have a voto at tho next election. Upon nomination day the list of candidates will* be telegraphed, and the  soldiers will have from that time on  until election day to vote. In connection with the referendum! they will  have until the end of the year o mark  their ballots.' AH soldiers in uniform  may vojf so long as they come from  B.C. whether they are on the voters'  list or not,  Anothor important measure which  tho government brought forward was  an amendment to tho Provincial Election* Act, The ohief feature of this  amendment is tho provision that the  presiding officer at eaoh poll rhft1' re-  qniro every elector applying for a  ballot to sign his n��mc, address, and  occupation in a signature book. This  it is believed will put an effective stop  *o plugging, as the returning officers  will be able to compare these slgna*  There would be at least one qualified  mining engineer employed this year in  each    district on thut  work, he said.  i\u engineer was now examining   iron  deposits   on    Vancouver Island,    und  would also look  over those elsewhere  on the coast.     During the coming year (  there would! also be an investigation'  throughout the southern interior in an  effort to cover the whole province.   O ���  Stores Close on Next Saturday  On Saturday, .lune 3rd, all tbe  stores in town will close for the day,  which will be observed as a general  holiday. Friday, the day before will  consequently noxt week take the place  of Saturday as a shopping day, and  housewives should note this. The stores  ill remain open Friday evening, and  tho usual Thursday uflemoon holiday  will not be obsorved next woek.  ThlB decision was reached at a meeting of the Merchants* Association held  Wednesday evening.   O -*���  Tho car of cattle shiprwd from the  C. P. R. atook farniB in Alberta to  tlie Okanagan T.onn and Investment  Co. for-distribution to farmers on easy  payments, arrived Saturday, and wero  placed in the Kxhlbition grounds.There  were fifteen cows nnd a calf, and notwithstanding thoir long journey looked  to be very promising stock. As tho  number of applications received up to  date far exceeds the number of cattle  available it is likely that a further-  shipment will be arranged for at once.  JOHN ADAMS  ELISHA K.

Power is  given in the amendment to the returning officer, or deputy returning officer,  to arrest any person nt the poll who  arouses a suspicion that he is about  to personate an elector or deceased  elector. Tho bill provides that tho  elections this year shall take place  forty-two days aftor tho formal nominations. This, it !b presumed, is in  order to give the soldiers at the front  time to cast their ballots prior to election day. Tn the past the period  ban only been two weeks.  A very noticeable improvement Ii  lately been made in the interior ol St.  Miohael'H Church by the ceiling of the  roof of the nave and side aisles.

Business Men Propose  Monthly Luncheon  In accordance with a suggestion  made and adopted at the bunking last  Wednesday of the Kelowna Merchants'  Association, future meetings will -ake  the form <ji a monthly luncheon at ono  or other of tho hotels. Arrangements  are not yet definitely made, but il Is  expected that tho luncheon will 'ftkfl  place on some Thursday in each month  at one o'clock (p.m. not a.m.), after  which the various problems of the As-  sociatiou will be discussed for a short  time. It is believed that by giving  this friendly and social aspect to tho  meetings of the Association a greater  interest will be aroused, and much  more good accomplished in consequent  of it.  Amongst the subjects discussed at  ehe last meeting was the proposal to  hold a "Pay-up Week," but it was felt  that the lime was not opportune, and  tho matter was deforred for the present. The advisability or otherwise of  adopting a general cash system of doing business was also informally discussed. The importance of such a  subjeot, however, made H necpss -  that it should be very thoroughly debated beforo any action was taken,  and arrangements were made for a  properly organized debate in which all  the pros and cons will bo fully brought  forward and considered from every  angle.

Miss Renwick has returned home  for the summer from Kamloops  much improved in health.  Alex. McQuanie met with a  nasty accident Saturday when a  colt he was driving ran away,  throwing him out of the' rig, dislocating his shoulder.  The bee for erecting a kitchen  to the manse proved to be quite a  success, a number attending from  both Rutland and Glenmore.  Rutland News  (Proa our own Correspondent.)  Mrs. P.

Munford. who is with  the 172nd at Kamloops, is, we hear,  just recovering from an attack of  measles (not German we hope).  The usual monthly Church of  England service will be held in the  Presbyterian church. Rutland, at  3 o'clock on Sunday afternoon  next.  A political meeting will be held  in the Rutland schoolhouse on  Monday next, at 8 p.m. Mr. L. V,  Rogers and others will address the  gathering. The opposition has been  invited.     All are welcome.  The Ep worth League social  which took place last Monday,  drew quite a large turnout of ypung  people, and resulted in a very  pleasant time for all. The programme included a solo by Miss  Amy Fleming, reading by Ernest  Schofield, duet by Misses Magee  and Faris, reading by Arthur Gray,  and solo by Mr. Cowell. In addition, there was a spelling match  and guessing contest.  The Empire Day celebration  came off very successfully yesterday, notwithstanding one little  drawback, due to the wind and  dust. There was quite a crowd  assembled in the school grounds,  including many from surrounding  districts. There were the usual  sports for the children���and the  grown-ups, too���and tug- o'-wars  and like diversions. A baseball  match was arranged in which the  "Champions" beat the "Scrubs" bv  5 to I. Then came the " feed,"  which was spread on the lawn and  done ample justice to by old and  young. After supper the young  people stayed on for some time to  amuse themselves with gan.es on  the lawn.  Is Your Subscription to the  Record Paid Up?  (By Edmund Chandler)  An ancient, though hardly a beautiful city, yet possessing un indefinable  charm of its own. Entering it (pm  the east, after having spent years iu  thu other easts, I felt that I was coning into tho real Bast for tho lirst time  thc dry, parched nnd (���rumbling, on-  luxuriant Bibloal East, tho East of Sir  Eiohard Buhton und Nebuchadnezzar,  the original and essential East that is  printed on the mind of childhood  through the Bible und the Book of  Hours.  Ono boss date palms, domed Arab  tombs, and veiled women going to tho  well with pitchers, in t ho Orient al  cities scattered far and wide; but one  has to come back to the Arab tn evoke  the familiar scene, tho Bedouin walk,  lhe desert gaze, tho peculiar hang ol  the turban and poise of the head.  Baghdad, or Ba*agh*daad, ns tho  Arabs style it���the two "n's" aro rolled and the "h" is sounded��� is a city  devoid of any kind of grandeur. The  narrow, tortuous alleys ure impassable  to carriages. The saddle bags of the  camels rub against tho walls of yellowish brick and jam uncomfortably at the  corners. Many of the streets are too  narrow for beasts of burden other than  tke mangy, ragged little mules nnd  asses which descend in a continual  stream with their empty water-skins to  the Tigris bank. Following them  through the maze one need never loose  the way. The parish dogs which one  meets everywhere are the scavengers ;  each has its own quarter, and if the  passes his neighbour's landmark he is  attacked and driven nut. Lean und  Btai'ved-looking us some of them are  the reek that goes up from the garbage  of the city proclaims that their work  is ill done.  These Fretted Jezebel Windows  The bazaars are often roofed, nnd  the houses, except in the upper stories  present j a blank wall to the street.  Hero the high-gabled windows on either  sido almost meet, nnd ono catches a  glimpse of nn arm and gometimse a face  of a surprising paleness, which is hurriedly or reluctantly veiled according  to the degree of modesty that impels  the notion.

Pto.  Lefevre was wounded some little time  afro in the hand, but apparently only  slightly, for he in back on duty again.  Ho is in the grenade section and irf  now the only ono left of all the original party with whom hg first Went  into action.  "We are in a different part of the lino  just at present, and it is just about  tho hottest little corner you have ever  seen. It was so hot. I came very  near claiming; a lot for myself out  here.  "If you have watched the papers,  you will havo seen that tlie old 29th  has hit it rather hard, the casualties  were all in two companies. My old  section has only one man left besides  me. I have been, feeling rather lonely  as all my old pals are gone,  i "You nover realize what a frifiul is  till ho gives up his life for you. That's  just what ono of my chums did fur me-  I guess ii it was not for him1 I would  not bo sitting hero to tell the tale.  "There were a small bunch of us,  about forty, out on nn advanced 'post  near some craters, when a large number of Germans, about three hundred;  attacked our position, We were advanced quite a distance from our main  line so \vero in very grave danger of being out off. After a .fierce bombard  ment they came on just ut daybreak in  mass formation. When they wore  about a hundred and fifty yards away  we opened fire. Hut we were standing  up to our hips in mud and slime and  had our rifles and ammunition covered with it, so q��ter two or three, shots  f- -they jambed and were useless only for  the bayonet. There was only one  rifle firing so we threw all the bombs  we could.' The machine guns fired a  few rounds and then jambed also.  "You can easily see the peril we were  in. Tho Germans came right up to  our parapet and killed about half of  our party. But when it come to using  the bayonet thoy were not there, although thoy had us cut off and outnumbered ton to one, they lost heart  and never got into our trench. I can't  see how it ia that they did not kill us  all off or take us prisoners?  "I never got a shot fired from my  rifle as it was jambed tight. Thete  j��] was a hun about twenty yards away  laying in n shell hole. He had four pot  shots at me, but I must have been  shaking so badly that lie could not bit  me. I was stuck fast in the barbed  wire and could not get loose when my  chum, seeing that I was up against it,  ran across to save mo and was shot  through  the stomach the  lirst shot.  "The only souvenir I have to show  for it all is a bullet hole through my  tunic.  "I put iu two days and two nights  just like so many years out there,  without any sleep or anything to cat  standing up to my hips in water with  only a drop of rum to keep mo warm  and with dend comrades lying in tho  water at my foot.

As  with numerous other produots   before  -tho    war, France, Great Britain, and  the United States were dependent   on  Germany    for   their   supplies of thiB  material.     The price was stoady    at  about $1.45 per pound, but rose from  82.50    shortly after the-lwginning   of  the    war to aa high as 87.60 per lb.  The price, is now about$5.50 per lb.i  The chief uses of magnesium are:  Scavenging   alloys,   making denser,  oleaner, stronger, and more homogeneous alloys.  Illumination, as in military uses for  shrapnel trailers, star bombs, flare  lights, etc.. and in photography for  flash lights.  In aluminum castings, 2 per cent, of  magnesium cleans up the aluminum,  almost doubling its '.-"sile strength,  quadrupling its resistnnco to shook or  jar, and reducing the cost of maohin-  ing by moro than 50 jwr cent. This  is of great importance in connection  with the construction of aoroplanes  and dirigible motors, high-speed  engines    of   every   type,   and in all  machinery or structures whore strength  with a minimum of weight is required.

If Mr. Heneage  is able to be with us, the Troop will  parade to the boat on arrival to welcome him.  Saturday���Tho ParadeB for this day  will be dependent upon whether Mr.  Heneage is here or not. Further notice  will be given during the week,  The Bteamer "Sicamous" on Thursday morning last took away irom us  Second Robert Thayer oi the Wolf  Putrol, and Beveral of the Scouts were  down at the boat eo give him a heartryj  sond-oU. He was accompanying nis  mother, Mrs. Thayer who is going to  keep house for her eldest son at Del-  burne, Sask. / With our concert lor  this year so near at hand, we are very  lorcibly reminded of the proud and  bappy event for our troop last year,  wnen Scout Thayer was presented With  the Gilt Medal of Merit he so well  earned. We are very proud of our  tender-hearted little Bob, and hope  that his absence irom us iB but temporary. He has always been a good  keen soout, and higher praise, than  that we know not. We should also  like to take the opportunity again of  expressing our appreciation of Mrs.  Thayer's services to us. Without her  where would our concert have been  last year? We wish both Bob and his  mother all good luck in their new  home.  lue pictured oi the troop taken by  Mr. Stocks last Saturday nave turned  out very well, particularly the Pyramids.  We are sorry that our Troop motto,  given at the beginning of this column  every week, seems to be so little  thought -ol by some members oi  the Troop. There were only two legitimate excuses for not being present  at the Parade on Saturday, and those  were sickness and inability to get away  irom work. However, the Patrol  Leaders' Counoil is going to deal with  this matter further shortly.  The rule that a Soout, if absent  from, all Parades for two consecutive  weeks will be struak off the rolls ualess  satisfactory reason is given for his absence, will in future be strictly enforced. We have struok off several  names lately, so that our membership  is now down to 43 Soouts, with lour  recruits attached and about six recruits unattached. With regard to the  recruits, as we have bo often said before, it will b��neoess(k( for those who  have been attending the Parades for  over one month, to pass their tenderfoot test immediately, if they wish to  remain attached.  The Rules and Regulations for the  Boy Scouts in Canada have just been  issued, and we notice several new rules  with regard to badges, etc, further  notice of which will be given through  this column in due course.  We notice that the age limit for joining the Scouts has been raised from  11 to 12. We hope thiB year, however  to organize a paok of Wolf Cubs,  which will enable those boys between  9 and 12, who are anxiously awaiting  their opportunity to take up Soout  work, to satisfy their ambition in the  meantime. We shall have more to say  aa to this also later. A good Cub  Master will be required.  We wish to take this opportunity of  thanking those oraployers who were  good enough to let off the Soouts employed by them on Saturday, in order  that they might be in the picture,  and also those employers who are frequently   letting   off   their Soout em-  Magic  baking  LjtWDlB  New Report on  Waterworks of Canada  A new edition of "Water Works and  Sewerage Systems of Canada," by L.  G. Denis, has just been issued by the  Commission of Conservation, In the  present report thu various physical  and financial' data respecting waterworks have been brought up to date,  and a new seotion on sewerage systems  has beon added. The book is a royal  octavo volume, hansomcly bound in  cloth, contains 176 pages of text and  is well illustrated with twenty-five  half-tones and five diagrams.

These  have been built at a total cost of  8123,725,033 and maintain an annual  maintenance charge of 84,558,539. The  total daily consumption is 426,877,000  imperial gallons, which gives an average daily consumption per capita of  111 gallons, ranging from 50 gallons  in Manitoba to 143 in New Brunswick.  There aro 206 plants supplied from  springs or wells, and 322 from lakes or  streams. In 72 plants the water is  filtered and in 21 plants it iB treated  with hypochlorite. , The municipally  owned plants number 396. As to  rates, where specified, it is shown that  flat rates are used in 209 cases, mi'Vers  in 30 cases, and both Hat and meter  in 141.  Thorc are 279 sewerage systems in  Canada, having an aggregate mileage  of 4,223, and which have been built at  a total cost of $74,504,418. In only  75 municipalities in the sewage treated.
