Canvassers for the Victory Loan have  been instructed as to the exact pro-  cedure to follow in cases where  the purchaser of a bond intenda to  turn it over to the city.  Aa to the city'a own contribution  to the Loan it waa suggested bv  His Worship that as soon aa the  total amount of tax receipts was  ascertained the Finance committee  be advised to hold a meeting and  that they be authorized to invest  such part of the city's sinking fund  as they deemed expedient in Victory Bonds.  City Clerk Dunn, who had been  sent by the council as delegate to  the convention of the Union of  B.C. Municipalities, gave a brief  report of what had taken place  there, mentioning aome of the  more important suggestions which  had been made to the government  for inclusion in the new Municipal  Act which is at present under consideration.  Mr. and Mrs. J. N. Cushing left  Monday  on a 'visit to Coaticook,  N.S.

The articles most in  demand are blankets, sweater coats,  flannelette and cloth. A further  order is to be sent next week.  The Women's Auxiliary of the  G.W.V.A. are arranging to decorate  the Morrison Hall for the War  Veterana' dance oh "Armistice  Night," November Uth, on an  elaborate and unusual plan. Various battles in which the Canadians  took part are to be represented in  the scheme.  Okanagan Teachers  Meet at Vernon  Department Grants Holiday to  Attend Convention  Kelowna Aims to Raise  -$180,000 of Loan  Canvassers Are Now Busy  Throughout the District  Rutland News  (Tram oar own oorro.DondsQt).  Messrs. Clarence Duncan and  L. Wanless, having announced  their intention of leaving shortly  for the Peace River country, a  farewell dance is to be given in  their honor next Tuesday in the  school house.  The Methodist Ladies' Aid are  giving a social in the school-house  next Friday, with a good program  of muaic, games and refreshments.  The Rutland War Memorial  monument will now very soon be  erected. Efforts are being made to  have it here and in place by  "Armistice Day" November 11 th.  Those in charge are anxious to get  in all subscriptions by that date,  and all who have promised assist  ance are asked to make their payments as soon as possible, leaving  them in care of Mra. Hardy at the  store. Cheques should be made  payable to the secretary, Mrs. S.  Gray. Announcements concerning the unveiling ceremony will be  made later.  TOMATO GROWERS  A general meeting will be held  in the Rutland school-house on  Monday, November 3rd at 8 p.m.,  to discuss the future price of  tomatoes with the canners. All  growers are urgently requested to  attend.  The teachers of the Okanagan  and Similkameen met in convention in the Vernon courthouse last  Friday and Saturday. The Department of Education granted Friday  aa a holiday to all teachers attending the convention. Nearly 100  teachera were preaent and as a result the convention waa a real live  affair. The president, Mr. Jamea  Gordon, of Kelowna, was in the  chair, and opened the convention  with an inspiring and able address  on the status of the teaching profession. In the course of his ad-  dress he stated that the low status  of the teaching profession was due  to the low salaries paid. In a  world which still believed that a  man was worth what he earned  and earned what he deserved,  there was no room for leadership  originating from the teachera, for  only the so-called leading citizena  could get a hearing even in educational leadership. He contended  that the business of the teacher so  far as men were concerned was a  good enough side-line, but as a  serious life work it was an absurdity. The tenure of office was too  insecure. No-one wanted an old  teacher and a man might find him-  self after years of faithful service in  the interests of the children of a  community, merely an object of  pity and patronage.  He contended alao that the appointment of teachers should be  taken out of the hands of Boards  of Trustees and placed in the hands  of officials who knew the needs ol  the various schools and |he qualifications and records of the teachers. The salaries of teachers  should be put on a similar basis to  the Civil Service and thus the degradation of approaching school  boards for advances in aalary  would be abolished. He thought  that the appointment of those who  were to teach, train, and influence  the young life of a community  should not be left to chance aa it  often is at present. Boards of  trustees in a large measure represented the ratepayers alone. Many  trustees were not even parents;  some had families grown up, and  were more interested in keeping  down the ratea than in advancing  education. His solution of the educational problem was the attraction of a high type of teacher into  the profession by better salaries  and greater security, making the  profession less dependent upon  the whims and prejudices of changing trustees and of faddists. At  present the teaching profession  was a profession of slavery, but  the fact that teachers everywhere  were organizing showed that they  were starting on the road to freedom,      s  A good deal of business was put  through in the afternoon, including  the reports ot the various committees. The salaries committee  reported that it had been successful in influencing the' School Boards  to increase salaries. In most cases  small increases had been granted.  In the evening the convention  listened to a highly instructive paper by Mr. Mitchell, of Kelowna,  on Manual Training, in which he  showed the educational value ot  manual  training.  Several resolutions came before  the convention, the moat important  being that the teachers of the Ok-  anagan and Similkameen unite  with the B.C. Federation, The reaolution was carried with enthusiasm.  The convention met again on  Saturday morning and finished up  all business left over from the previous day. It was resolved to hold  another convention in the spring  for the discussion of purely technical matters connected wilh school  work. The annual business meeting of the Association was fixed to  be held each fall. The new officebearers appointed were : President  D. J. Welsh, Enderby; first vice-  pres., S. Macdonald, Summerland ;  second vice-pres,, Miss Cavers,  Vernon; recording secretary, Miss  Brown, Summerland; corresponding secretary, A. S. Matheaon, Penticton.  Kelowna's objective in the present Victory Loan "drive is $ 180,000.  This is rather less than last year,  when nevertheless the allotted sum  wa. largely over-subscribed. The  cotps of canvassers, which is now  hard at work, ahould have a much  easier task, and it is possible the  amount will be reached long before  the three weeks period of the  drive is passed. Though possibly  the drive lacks the glamour and  attractiveness lent bv a war almost  won, yet all sensible, people realize  that need of the money is just ss  great, and the purposes to which it  is to be applied just as patriotic.  Up to last night the total subscription turned in by the town  collectors was $29,500. To win  the Prince of Wales' honor flag it  will be necessary to reach the  figure of $ 120,000. For $ 150,000  one crest will be added, and for  the full amount of the objective,  two crests will be added.  The local office of thc aecretary,  Col. Belson, is located in the  G.W.V.A. room, and all information can be obtained there, or from  any canvasser.  Coldstream Estate is  Offered to Govt.  The famous Coldstream ranch is  lo be sold, according to the statement of Mr. R. E. Lundy, the representative of Lord Cowdray, and  Mr. Buchanan, who ia at present on  s visit from England.  This ranch comprises about 13,-  000 acres and includes the largest  orchard, in one solid block, in  Canada, there being 750 acres of  bearing trees, principally apples of  standard varieties. There are also  thousands of acrea of range and  hay meadows, as well as large  areas of cultivated agricultural  lands all of which ia under irrigation.  In connection with an offer of  the eatate to the government bv  the Cowdray interests, Premier  Oliver stated that no offer had been  made by the government at any  lime. More than a year ago, however, the Land Settlement Board  caused an inventory  to  be  made  Local Couple Married  The wedding took place yesterday afternoon of David Lawson,  lately returned from overseas service with the 54th Battalion, to  Mias Helen Duncan. The ceremony  which waa performed by the Rev.  E. D. Braden, took place at 5 p.m.  at the reaidence of the bride's  brother, Mr. Iss. Duncan, of Cadder  Avenue. Miss S. Simpson acted  aa brideamaid, the best man being  Mr. D. K. Gordon. Following the  wedding a reception and dance  were held, attended by many  friends of both bride and groom.  This morning Mr. and Mrs. Lawson  left by the morning's boat for a  brief honeymoon, after which they  are to make their home at Armstrong.  and placed its own estimate on the  properly at somewhere in the region of $900,000. The matter did  not get any further and the government now has been offered the  property as it stands for .f 1,500,000.  Frost Gives Farmers  Anxious Time  Damage    Done   However   is  Comparatively Small  The past week has been an  anxioua one for the fruitgrowers of  the Okanagan owing tu the un-  unusually severe frost and wintry  weather which the valley experienced in common with other parts of  the country. Temperatures fell to  ten and twelve degrees of frost in  some places, sufficient to do considerable damage to the apple crop,  a large percentage of which still  remains unpicked. Fortunately  the frost has been followed hy  snow and a gradually rising thermometer, and it now seems certain  that the loss will be comparatively  small. All picking operations had,  ol courae, to be auspendea, but  have now been resumed, the fruit,  apparently, being little worae.  Japanese privy council Monday  last approved the German peace  treaty.  All Canadian soldiers are expected to be home by December 1st  Only about 3000 remain in Britain.  The Kelowna Athletic Club is to  hold a meeting in the club room  behind Morrison Hall on Tuesday  next, November 4th, at 8 p.m.  Arrivals on today's boat were  Lis. Gladstone and Walter Fuller,  who have been serving with the  Royal Air Force in England.  That a large portion of the Alberta potato crop has been entirely  ruined by the recent heavy frost is  the report lhat is now being received from many sections of the  province What the loss will actually  amount to ia not at the moment  known but this has been variously  estimated at from 50' to 80 per  cent.  A movement is beginning to take  form in New Westminster to abandon the present method of city administration by a mayor and council and adopt instead the commission form of government.  Hon. Dr. S. F. Tolmie, minister  of agriculture, was returned at lhe  head of the poll in the federal  bv-election held at Victoria Mon-  day, his majority being 2,082. The  figures were: Tolmie (Unionisl),  7,105; T. A. Barnard (Federated  Labor Party), 5,023.  Bank figures for August show a  total of $1,196,632,931 and the depositors in savings banks are thus  in the happy position of being ahlr>  to subscribe the $300,000,000 aaked for during the present Victory  Loan campaign almost four times  over. Such gratifying evidence of  prosperity as these figures furnish  the success of the new and final  Victory Loan should be outstanding.  Messrs. W. D. Walker, Claude  James, W. Craig, A. C. Poole, and  Geo. E. Thompson are amongat  the jurymen attending the Assizes  at Vernon this we-k.  A party of CP.R. officials consisting of T. C. Macnab, district  superintendent, W. B. Harris and  H. A. Plow, car service agent and  diatrict freight agent respectively  at Vancouver, and L. K. Curtis,  car service agent at Winnipeg, accompanied bv R. M. Winslow, of  the B. C. Traffic Association, came  down to Kelowna Sunday and met  a number of the fruit shippers to  to discuss the present car situation.  In Admiral Lord Jellicoe's report  upon the question of naval defence  for the British Empire and her  colonies in the Pacific Ocean and  the Far East which is now before  the Australian House of Representatives, he assumes that future danger to the Empire and her colonies  lies in the Pacific and the Far  East.

Have you  heard this query? Or have you  asked il?  The Victory Loan ol thia year  stands out as the bridge between  war and peace. 1 he war ia over.  Cur boys won that. The reconstruction period is dawning and we  at home must win that.  Much ol the money that Canada  is asking (ot will be needed to clean  up the war debt. The expenses ol  demobilization were heavy, and  there is still much of it unpaid.  Now that our men are back, let it  not be said that we repudiated the  debt (or bringing them back.  The sick and wounded soldiers  still in hospitals are expecting that  Canada will care (or them and their  dependents until they have been  returned to health and strength.  The hospital services must be maintained at (ull strength as long as  there are returned men needing  attention.  Many men through disability are  unable to return to their pre-war  occupations. The Department o(  Soldiers' Civil Re-establishment is  doing a fine work in training returned Boldiers in trades and professions lhat they can earn a living  at, and is following up the training  and seeing that they obtain remunerative employment. The maintaining of this branch of reconstructive  service calls (or much funds, and  the Victory Loan will be used to  pay (or it as well as the other purposes.  Under the Soldiers' Land Settlement Act, enough monev is lent to  returned soldiers to enable them to  buy and stock a (aim. This money  will be repaid at a low rate of interest. The soldier is thus given a  chance to re-instate himself in civil  life, and production is given a boost.  Of the total amount of the forthcoming loan, $24,000,000 has been  appointed to finance the soldier--  farmers.  Pensions to the disabled and dependents of our glorious dead, as  well as the authorized gratuities will  be other items on the expense  sheet. These are some of the obligations owing to the returned  soldier who is now in health.  The maintaining of Canada's  prosperity is an important reason  why the Victory Loan should be a  smashing success. The money is  needed to finance the credits to  overseas countries so that they may  continue their trade relationa with  us. If Canada cannot give these  credits other countries will, and  then Canada will lose all that great  overseas trade that haa been the  mainstay of our agricultural and  industrial life (or so long.  As an inves'ment Victory Bonds  are eminent. Paying 5J per cent.,  selling above par on the open market, and guaranteed by the Dominion ���what furth-r reason can you  have for hesitating? The Victory  Loan 1919 ought to be oversubscribed, and all right-thinking citizens will do their utmost to see  lhat such a result is obtained.

DUTIES: Orderly patrol for  week. Eagles, and also for the week  following; next for duty, Otters.  PARADES: The combined troop  will parade at the clubroom on  Tuesday, November 4th, at 7.15  p.m.  In future at parades, shorts wil)  not be required as a necessary part  of the uniform. Thatistosa> when  patrols are being inspected for  neatness, it will be possible for them  to obtain full marks without wear-  ing shoits.  a        .  The annual meeting of lite Boy  Scouts local association will be  held at the clubroom on Thursday,  November 20th, at 8 p.m. We  hope that all parents of the scouts,  and also all friends of the troop  will make a point of attending this  meeting. Officers will be appointed for the year, and all business  will be considered in connection  with the welfare of the troop. We  intend to have the accounts of all  members of the Iroop straightened  out before this meeting, so that we  ahall be able to make an exact  estimate aa to how the finances of  the troop stand at present.  Wo would ask all scouts who wish to  volunteer (or service in the 1919 Victory  Loan Campaign  to  let  tha  Scoutmaster  have their names as soon .a possible, as  the campaign is at present ill progress, and  there ia a good deal ol work in connection  with it which might be dona by any who  find they can spare the time.  .       .  .  The Scoutmaster is at preaent engaged  in determining which patrol ia entitled to  to the Aquatic Shield for the years  1918  and 1919.    We might unofficially announce,  however, that the Otters appear to stand a  little better chance than the roet for having  their names inscribed on this ahield.  a     . a  .  At a recent meeting it wa. given out that  in all probability each patrol would  be  called upon at different week, to write an  item for the scout column.   We did not  expect that patrol leadera would be wildly  enthusiastic about this, a. thay appear to  want ua to think that they have no genius  in the literary line, but it standa to reason  that the writer ia not able to find out what  is going on amongst each patrol, and alter  all the idea of writing the  column i. to  make known what the troop Is doing from  week to week.   During the winter month.  thia will not ba such an easy job,  as the  activities of acouta are necessarily lessened,  so if any of the P.L's feel that ihey would  be able to contribute an item,  it  doesn't  matter how amall ao longa. it i. something,  why for goodness sake "dan't be backward  in coming forward."  A new scout magazine, the "Canadian  Roy," haa been published in Canada, and  ia our official scout paper, juat a. the  "Scout" ia the English official paper. We  have subscribed to this, and have one or  two copie. which we ahall distribute  amongat the troop at the next meeting. If  you are thinking of subscribing to a scout  paper, thia ia probably better than the  "Scout" aa it deals with the life of tha  Canadian Boy Scout, and this we would  be able to appreciate more, alao it haa  some verv good editorials. However, you  will be able to judge for yourselves when  you aaa it.  At the meeting on Tuesday evening, the  21 at inatant, there was a marked improvement noticed in the attendance aa compared with that of th. previous Saturday. The  troop waa divided into three section., and  these received instruction in gymnastics,  physical training and tumbling successive.  ly. Wa hope to become experts at  tumbling ao that we may be able to put  thia on aa an item in the coming concert,  and to do thia we shall have to aaa good  attendance at the regular meetinga, which  we hope to have if certain membera of tha  troop can only drag themselves away trom  their lessons (?) for an hour or ao a week.  Govt, to Supply  Educational Facilities  The government agent at Kamloops has been notified that the  government is willing to assist in  the education of all children who,  for certain reasons, are unable to  attend the public schools either in  | the cities or rural districts. Free  text books will be supplied and a  correspondence course carried out.  Parents whose children are in these  particular circumstances should apply at once to the department of  education at Victoria and take advantage ol this opportunity.  Short Pieces for the  Wolf Cubs  By the Old Silver Wolf  We had our hike to Knox Mountain on  Saturday and the boyi who went ���aid it  wat the bett and mott enjoyable held thii  year. It tnowed mott of the time but a  big fire wat built (which many of our  chumt in town taw), and mppur wat prepared. At one time there Wat steak, bacon  potatoes and applet being cooked, betidet  five cant on to boil, which waa a fine ahowing. 1 have often noticed a good tpirit between the cubt, and when one boy had  brought nine tlicet, two potatoet, three  tautage rolls and an apple for tupper, and  then found he had actually forgotten hit  cake���why, the others all shared up and  taved him' disappointment.  Six of our leading boya have been transferred to the tcoutt, where, we are ture  they will make a name for themtelvet and  for the Pack in which they got their early  training. We are torry to lose them, and  especially Alwin and John, who have left  town. Alwin waa one of the bett cubt I  have known, and the way in which the  boyt tpeak of him proven thit to be right.

An article in the Province of  Saturday last draws attention to the  progressive Benvoulin organization  of Farm Women, which has set out  with a firm intention to "better the  social life of the community." In  addition to various social functions  the society haa purchased during  the year a community canning  plant, and has put up and sold  over 1000 cans of (ruit and vegetables during the season, as well aa  their own household supplies. The  proceeds of the sale are going to  the new "community hall" which ia  projected.  "We notice a tendency," says the  Prairie Markets' Bulletin, "to put it  over this year in marketing onions  grown by Orientals from Kelowna.  Theae are small in size, ill-assorted  and thanks to the prevailing sunshine fairly well cured. From the  aame district comes well grown  onions carefully graded with smalls  removed. We have been rubbed  over by e ahipper because we objected to this careless practice as  described above. We intend to  continue to object and may add  more force to it, we know that there  are only a few offenders and we  will not allow these to injure our  reputation."

Then gently scan your brother man,  Still gentler sister woman;  Tho' they may gang a kennin' wrang,  To step aside is human.  Who made the heart, 'tis He alone  Decidedly can try us;  I Ie knows euch chord, ita various tone,  Each spring, its various bias ;  Then at the balance let'a be mute,  We never can adjust it;  What's doije we partly may compute,  Rut know not what's resisted.  And that is true. How very apt we are  to judge another by certain unwise actions, and never give him credit for temptation to folly successfully combatted. 1  think usually we are fer too censorious -  too ready to perceive the mote in the  other fellow's eye while while suffering  from badly blurred vision ourselves. I  have the idea that if we could persistently  cultivate and practice the habit of rejoicing in the truth rather than iniquity, we  would have a much happier time all  round.  There is, of course, such a thing as constructive criticism, and this can be- I  should say perhaps���only exercised from  a charitable motive, and maybe vou will  grant me this motive when I say how disappointing it is to read of the doings of  "Society" as chronicled in the daily press.  Whist drives, dances and freak entertainments seem to constitute their principal  leisure pursuits.  By the bye, what do you think of the  pmposal to include playing cards and tobacco in any or every form in the new  prohibition legislation? I don't suppose  it will go through, but one never knows.  I he people have already put up with so  much curtailment of their freedom���tak-  ing it lying down as it were���that one  cannot be surprised at anything happening  I  do  wish that those good people  would do a little self-examination along  with their soul-saving efforts on behalf of  others.  imagine anyone trying to kill time���one  of our most precious possessions, shall 1  say ? Yet so many people do it, or pass a  large part of their lives devising means to  that end. 1 think it ia a pity that more  facilities are not offered the young folk of  the district for profitable employment of  the winter's leisure. Continuation classes,  for instance, would be a good thing if  taken advantage of, wouldn't they ? The  wise man says, "There is a time to mourn  and a time to dance ; a time to keep and  a time to lose." But this simply implies  that dancing all the time is not wise expenditure of the same. Why not more  intellectual recreation for the winter than  is usually taken?  Victory Bonds are Good Investments  47tf     i who are responsible   for such reforms (?)
