 *5*i  VOL. VII.  NO. 40.  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, AUGUST 26, 1915.���6 PAGES  High-Grade Fruit  Fruit Inspector Urges  Better  Care in Picking and Packing  The appeal to the patriotism of British Columbia consumers oi fruit and  more especially those of the coast cities, to this year buy B. C. fruit instead of that imported from America,  has met with a really whole-Hearted  response. The fact Is beginning to get  home to B. C. residents that one of'  the surest ways to make B. C. per-  ' manently prosperous is tb increase  and boost its industries. This patriotic movement has affected almost all  linea of industry, but more especially  the iruit industry, and there is a very  deoided preference- at the .present moment for fruit, grown at home.  This is a good thing for tha grower, as he will nqt be slow to realize  but it also places some responsibility  upon him. He muat make good  at his end of the deal. That is he  most produce goods equal to il not  superior to the imported stuff he  hopes to supplant. Otherwise patriotism might be too severely strained.  Why, someone will say, there is no  danger about that, as we can produce right here in the Okanagan, the  finest fruit in the world,. That is true.  We can. But do we always?  It is on tMs very matter that Hr.  W. II. Hyne, assistant fruit inspeotor  from the coast is making a round of  the packing houses and principal orchards of the valley. He js urging the  importance of using more rare in thinning, grading and packing ot fruit if  the markets which are being secured  at the coast are to be retained. He  ia in faot the fruit growers candid  .friend, and is making it his business  juat now to point out some of the  shortcomings which threaten to interfere with the success of the "Buy B.C  Fruit" campaign. It would be ths  hoight of foil)', to abuse the friendly  attitude of the consumer towards  home grown produce by foisting on to  him an artiole in any way inferior to  what ho has bought from across the  line,  Mission Defeats Kelowns  in Tennis Tournament  A return matoh oi mixed doubles  between Hission and Kelowna was  played at the local' opurts last Saturday afternoon and resulted in a win  ior the visitors by 7 events to 9.  The Hission*- team wai composed of:  Hrs. Leigh and H. C. Hallam; Hiss  Hull and B. H. Stubbs; Hrs. Fordham  and E. A. Barneby.  The Kelowna team comprised Hiss  B. E. Seon and H. G. H. Wilson;  Hiss E. Spencer and H. A. Willis; Hrs.  Gardner and H. 0. H. Gardner.  Results of the play were a* follows:  H. G. H. Wilson and Hiss Seon lost  to H. C. Hallam and Hrs. Leigh 2-6,  6-3, 9-6; R. H. Stubbs and His* Hull  6-7, 3-6; E. A. Barneby and Hrs.  Forhham 8-6, 7���5, 4-8.  H. A. Willis and Hiss E. Spenosr  lost to H. C. Hallam and Hrs. Leigh  11-9, 4-6, 6-7; R. H. Stubbs and  Hiss Hull 6-8, 6-9, 9-6; beat E. A.  ("arneby and Hrs. Fordham 6���9, 6���0.  H. G. H. Gardner, and Hrs. Gardner  lost to H. C. Hallam and Hrs. Leigh  ' 1-6, 0-6; R. H. Stubbs and Kiss Hull  6-9, 6���4, 4-6; beat  E. 'A. Barneby  . and Hrs. Fordham 6���4, 7-6.  .  If the news published In Washington  describing ths new British motor patrols is correct tha German submarine  will be less of a menace In future. The dustries  motor patrols have been spoken ol as  'whippets', a whippet being an extreme  ly fast dog of the greyhound type used, in coursing. Tho motorboate are  to oourse the German submarines, are  fitted with gas engines, and their  speed will range from thirty to sixty  knots an hour. They will mount one  or two quickfirers and their speed,  small sise and ability to turn and  dodge will make them almost invulnerable to underwater attaok. Thousands of these boats are reported to be  in progress of construction, and ordera  for. 500 are now being filled in the  United States. They will all have  searchlights, and groups of thsm, will  act. as convoys to merchantmen within  the submarine sons.  A SOURCE OF VAST WEALTH  The report of the Commissioner of  Dominion Parks for tiie year ending  Haroh SI, 1914 has just been issued.  It describes the development that has  been accomplished in the national  parka of Canada, and is particularly  interesting in Revelstoke as indicating  what the Revelstoke park is likely to  mean to the oity.  Especially significant is the statement of the vast sums spent in various parts of the world by tourists.  The tourist traffic already brings the  iourth largest returns from Caoada's  natural resources. With the ine /it-  able expansion of the tourist trallic  and with tbe development and Increased attractiveness of the Revelstoke  park, the result to the city of Revelstoke seems almost illimitable.  In discussing the revenues derived  from the tourist industry, Hr. J. B.  Harkin, Commissioner of Dominion  parks, says:.  "To emphatize the commercial value  of national parks, I think that it is  worth while assembling, with the new  material secured in that connection,  some of tho more important figures  given in previous reports. In an earlier report I have shown:���  1. Annual revenues ol France from  tourist traffic 1500,000.000.  2. i Annual revenue of Switzerland  from tourist traffic $150,000,000.  3. Annual revenue of Italy from  tourist traffic 1100,000.000.  4.- Annual revenue oi Hame, U. S.  A., from tourist traffic $40,000,000.  5. Annual expenditure of Amerioan  tourists-in Kngland (95,000,000.  6.��Expenditure of American tourists abroad in l'JIO, 050,000,000.  "The United States Bureau of Statistics has made a calculation in regard to the amount of money spent  abroad in 1012 by American tourists.  On the basis of 800,000 persons sailing from the United States in 1019,  it is estimated that 400,000 were  tourists and that each of these spent  on an average ol 11,060 on the trip,  making a total annual expenditure of  1400,000,000.  It is calculated that from $26,000,-  000 to 130,000,000 ia spent each year  by tourists in the three great tourist  cities, London, Paris and Berlin. Figures have been Compiled by the' New  England railway lines with respect' to  tourist traffic in New England States,  in these states there are 4,406 hotels  and boarding houses capable of accommodating 221,414 people. In 1913  these, accommodated 1,400,000 guests,  and it is calculated the tourists spent  there not'less than $100,000,000. , .  "Hr. W. T. Robson, organiser of  tne Canadian Travel Association, (formerly general advertising agent of the  C.P.B.), has prepared a careful estimate of the amount of iinney spent hy  tourists in Canada last year. His figures an 850,000.000. Slirtliig ns it  may appear, these figuius mure ihi  value of tourist traffic in the fourth  position with respect to revenue from  Canada's natural resources. The comparison is:  Field crops, 1013    $5O9,4"J7,O0O  Forest products, 1913 .  $161,099,000.  Hinerals. 1913   $109,300,000.  Tourist traffic, 1913 ..    $50,000,000.  Fisheries.. 1913 .....    $43,670,000.  "The figures compiled are calculated  to emphasise ths tremendous commercial potentialities of the tourist traffic  Nothing attracts .tourists like national  parks. Therefore, national' parks provide the chief means of bringing to  to Canada a stream of tourists and a  stream of tourists' gold. With the natural attractions and wonders possessed by . Canadian parks in particular  and Canada in general, it seems obvious that a proper and adequate development of Dominion parks means  that millions of dollars annually will  be brought into Canada by tourists."  And it is worth remembering that  while the timber, fishing or mining In-  have the effect of depleting  Canada's natural resources the tourist  industry, takes nothing from the nat  ural wealth of the country. The scenery remains after tne tourists have left  the oountry. The country Is richer  and its resources remain undiminished.  Tomatoes are not going into consumption at all well; and in consequence  prices have fallen sharply, to a point  practically unremunerative to the grow  er. The advertising urges the con'  sutner that. now is the time to buy  B. C. tomatoes and emphasi'/es their  superior quality and moderate prioe.  A circular is being issued to 1,200 retailers, urg*ng them to push Bales of  tomatoes, make window displays, and  use their newspaper space as well. The'  newspapers are being supplied witb an  artiole giving reoipes for using tomatoes, emphasizing particularly a very  successful recipe, used by Hrs, R. J.  Dcaohman of Calgary, for preserving  whole tomatoes. A housewives' competition is . also being held at Calgary  for the best jar of home canned whole  tomatoes. The Calgary Consumers'  League is giving demonstrations on  vegetable cann'ng. Thno ideas should  help greatly in developing the demand  The advertising appropriation iB, however, not equal to the necessities of  the situation.

Tho ceremony was witnessed by Hrs.  R. St. John, and Pte. Tupper Smit  C.A.8.C., and Pte. Arthur Maim, C..  H.C*. Pte. Armstrong left the following Saturday with his regiment for  Shorncliffe camp, England.   O   WILL NOT BREAK CAMP  FOR THREE MONTHS  The military authorities of the pro.  vinos ol Brandenburg, in whioh, Berlin  Is located, have issued an order expropriating , all supplies of copper,  brass and nickel. The order coven  skillets, pots, pans and kettles In the  households. These articles may be retained until further notice, but must  not be sold, destroyed or disposed ol  bt any way.  With reference to reporta that there  was a probability nf the troops under  canvas in the Okanogan being returned to the ooast before long on  acoount of the approach of tiie autumn season Col. .1. Duff Stuart, brigadier and commandant of the Vernon  damp stated at Vancouver that no arrangements had been made with such  an object in view. He said that he  expected the oentral provincial training base would be operated for at  least another three months >as the  weather in the Okanagan did not usually turn really oold until early: in  December.  The proposal has been mads to  build huts similar to those ussd at  Salisbury Plain to house the troops  right through the winter, but no  definite decision had been made, he  said, as to tht plans for the winter-  training. In his opinion the best  method would be to keep the troops  at ths Vernon camp until the weather  became too cold to live under canvas  and then to move the soldiers back  to ths coast and quarter them in the  exhibition buildings at Vancouver  New Westminster and Victoria, following ths same system as was' practised last winter on the ooast.  Col. Stuart said that camp sites  were being prepared for the new  overseas battalions, the 67th of Viotoria and the 79nd Soaforthe of Vancouver, In the Okanagan, and that it  was expected that the naw troops  would ba mobilized at'an early date,  when uniforms and equipment were  received.  The proposal that had bean spade  that it would be much cheaper to  train. Canadian troops in England  than in the Dominion in view of ths  decrease in the purchasing power oi  British gold might have a radical  change on the arrangements for the  winter training, Col. Stuart pointed  out,   1-0   the construction of a large number pf  silos. There is no doubt now as to  the value of the silo in ths economical  and proper feeding ol stock, and especially dairy cows, providing milk producing succulent feed throughout the  months when pasture is impossible.  Some twelve or fifteen farmers have  already made plans to erect silos this  year, and Some have already made a  start on the foundations.  In order to assist farmers to carry  out these structures on the most  modern and efficient lines, the Department of Agriculture has prepared sets  of plans with specifications and all  instructions (obtainable at any time  from the seoretary of the Farmers' Institute, Hr. E. I.. Ward). The department has also secured the services of  Mr. R. J. Ferris, to superintend and  assist wherever possible, in the erection ol the silos. Hr. Ferris came in  on Saturday Irom Pentioton where he  has been superintending the construction of a silo for Hr. ,1. S. Kinney,  a progressive farmer who is building  up a fine herd of Holsteins of. the Do  Koi strain.  Tomorrow Hr. Ferris will commence  the erection ol a silo on Mr. M. Jlerer-  oa's plaoe at Ellison. So lar as possible the department is following the  policy ol erecting one lor demonstration purposes in each Institute district. Thc plan, is one which has been  prepared by the Crops and Soils division, ol which Prof. W. T. McDonald  ' i. VJ��f. All lumber and materials  are to be provided, ol course by the  farmer himself but the department undertakes to see that the building is  carried out in the most up-todate  manner. Hr. Hereron's silo, it might  be mentioned will be tbe second largest in the province, being 12 feet in  diameter and 36 feet high. He is expecting to be able to feed.some fifty  head ot cattle.  The silo will be finished in the course  of a few days, and on Thursday, September 2nd, at 2.30 p.m., a demonstration in filling a silo will take plaoe  on Hr. Hereron's ranch, when one ol  the Crop and Soil division lecturers  will speak on the advantages ol silos  and the beneficial results from feeding  silage.   s���  FIREMAN KILLED WHEN  TRAIN HITS SLIDE,  M. MoLennan, of Revelstoke, fireman  on the C.P.R. main line was kitted on  Friday night last when his train hit  a rock slide half a mile east of (Sol-  den. The slide was 100 feet long and  10 lest deep. Tbe fores of the, collie-  sion threw the engine over on its  side. Mcl-ennan was 36 years old and  leaves a wile and four sons.  Offioers' casualty lists from July 19  to .July 30 show that the British army  lost 115 killed, 986 wounded and 14  missing, a total of 368. This brings  the aggregate officer loss since the  beginning of the war to 13,666, of  whom 4,176 are recorded dead, 8,385  wounded and 1,175 missing.  Mr. W. B. M. (alder returned this  week from, his trip east.  Hr. W. 6, ('alder of Revelstoke, ths  first farmer in that distriot to   grow  silage corn and build a silo says that  his bill lor feed last year was   $600.  He   considers   his silo will sava him  $400.  ' "     ��� ....  Router's    correspondent    at   Zurich  says It Is estimated by Swiss observers that the Germans are losing 80,-  000 on the eastern front weekly.  David Lloyd George, minister of mu  nitions, announced reoently that his  department had taken'over 190 more  establishments lor, ths production of  war munitions, lho total number ol  these plants now under the control of  the ministry is 865.

Fonythe, Smith, who has  been Prairie Fruits Harket Commissioner under the Horticultural Branch  of the Department of Agriculture einoe  June 1911, has .left the provincial servioe, his resignation taking effect on  August 17th. His place has been filed  by the appointment of Hr. W. E. Ho-  Taggart, of Vancouver, who will enter  on hij duties August 94th.  Hr. Smith proceeded immediately to  Ottawa, en route, to Manchester, England, where he takes a new position,  that of Canadian Fruit Trade Commissioner. It is the stated intention of  the Dominion government to carry on  in Great Britain a campaign to I inorease the trade in Canadian apples.  Methods will be used similar to those  developed in the B. C. work in the  prairies, so that Hr. Smith's work  previous experience will be of service  to him in the larger field.  It is expected that Mr. Smith's presence in the English markets will assist in developing a bigger trade from  B. C.

Jamieson, who is staying in the district  for a while.  Private "Charlie" Edwards, ol the  11th C.H.R., stationed at Vernon is  enjoying a month's furlough here. His  appearance is a splendid advertisement  for the developing properties of bully  beef, hard tack and drill.  ��� ���  The Women' Institute held their first  regular meeting last Thursday afternoon. A good attendance greeted the  demonstration of iee cream making by  Hra. Earl Clever, and the results being  sampled by the members, was declared  to be absolutely perfect. Next month  the meeting is to be devoted to the  making of supplies for the Red Cross  Society.  The teamster who was taking the  packed fruit into town from the looal  packing shed, had aa accident (whioh  might easily have proved more serious) yesterday afternoon. Oa going  down the first hill past the store tke  wagon was turned over and rolled,  with ths fruit down tho bank. Ins  packing staff were busy picking up the  broken boxes but thc peaches wen  beyond salvage.  Calgary Business Ufa  Will M tap  To Get First-Hand Knowledge  of Fruit-Growing Conditions  The recent conference at Calgary has  certainly had an effect in jnereastng  the interest in our fruit industry. It  was in addition, a good advertisement  for B. C fruit. These good effort*  are apart from.and in add tion to the  value of the conferenoe in bringing  about a better understanding of the  problems ol the fruit industry, and  the need for preserving it from Ihe unfair competition of imported fruit.  Following the conference, tha B. C.  Fruit Growers' Association executive  with a view to further promoting the  interests of the industry, especially by  improving the sentiment towards it in  the prairie, extended an invitation to  the Calgary Board of Trade, its inem-  bers, and the business men of Alberta,  to arrange a visit to the principal  fruit sections'of the interior of C. C.  The board of trade -considered 'the invitation at a meeting on Thursday  last, and it met with a surpriring de  gree of approval. It seems oertain that  a party of about fifty, including some  ladies, will go.   The C.P.R., is giving  favorable rate, The trip is planned  to start from ��� Calgary on Saturday  evening, October 2nd, reach Nelson on  Sunday evening, Penticton, Monday  evening. It iB it (.posed to spend  Monday at Penticton, Tuesday at Summerland, Wednesday at Kelowna,  Thursday afternoon and Friday at  Vernon, reaching Calgary, Sunday,  Ootober 10th. The visit should have  -aluable results for the B. C. fruit  industry. It will give some of the  most substantial citizens of Alberta  opportunity to learn at first hand of  the conditions1 under which our fruit  industry has been tfovefopsd, and the  problems under which it Is laboring.  What they see and learn will affect  very greatly the general sentiment of  Alberta in regard to our fruit, and  the change should be a favorable one.  It is needless to say that the excursion itself, and the reports of the visitors on their return will be very good  advertising. The visit should do much  in promoting a greater development of  interprovmoial trade and ths strength-  ening of th* ties of friendship that  bind the two provinces.  Kelowna Sends More  Men on Active Service  Who will be the next to go? This  is the question frequently heard these  days. It has been thought that Kdowna had furnished her share of men  both for service in Canada and at the  front, but stiU eaoh -week sees further  names added to the list of those who  have gone out to serve. This week  another dozen named ara added to the  list and on Monday tour new recruits  left for Kamloops from whence they  will be sent to various posts along  the C.P.R. to do guard duty along  with the R.H.R.'*. They wero H. J.  Edwards, J. Atkinson, F. Whittles and  W. Everton.  Also on Monday three more men-  left the distriot for Vernon where they  have entered the ranks of the 54th  battalion for overseas service, these  comprised Geo. Mehirum of Kelowna  and A. E. Henderson and B. Conroy'  of Peachland.  On Wednesday   morning 'a   further  squad composed of John Nicol,   .1. J.  Davies, Norman Blackwood, W. J. Hal* -  day and S. B. Ryder left for Kamloops '  having joined the R. H. R.'s.  NO ANNEXATION IS WANTED  A manifesto against annexation of  conquered territory by Germany addressed to the German chancellor by  committees ol ths Social Democratic  party and the Socialist groups in the  Reichstag is published today by Hu-  menHe. The document point* out  that ths party joined the present  struggle with the rest of the German  people to defend national existence aw)  independence, not to make conquests.  "Every infringement by force," ft  says, "of the autonomy and independence of the people' contains the  germs of future wan and implies in  itself a dangerous coalition nf enc-  sasM against Germany."  Grand Admiral von Tirpits of the  German navy has~been decorated with  the order "Pour Ie HeritV' by the  Kaiser, as the result of.what the Emperor oalled "Germany's increasing  submarine successes."  A statute of Bismarck, weighing 900  pounds has been brought to Moscow  by the Russians. It was taken on  the Kaiser's estate in East Prussia  and since has been kept in the Baltio  provinces.  Newe has been reoeived from Brussels that the celebrated Belgian explorer and missionary, Father Cam-  bier, has been condemned by the Germans to fifty months ia prison for a  sermon on 'Belgium's Hurtyrdom.'

Cotton as Contraband  Ab the wnr proctitis, tho matter of  placing cotton on the contraband list*  becomes continually more insistent.  The more directly the issue is considered, tho more apparent becomes  the great forebearanco exorcised by  Great Britain, in not taking this stop  long ago.  There can be no possible question  as to the perfect right ot Britain  to take this Rtep, in conformity- with  international law. During tho American oivil war the northern states placed cotton on the list of contraband  and maintained an effective blockade  against its exportation, so that the  cotton mills of Lancashire stood idle  and the industrial population of that  British manufacturing centre was reduced to a condition of extreme want.  If it is merely a matter of law, then  the precedent established at that time  bv the United States, must hold good  today when conditions are reversed.  As a recent concrete case, the French  prizo court, handed down a judgment  last weok confirming the validity of  the seizure of tho steamsnip Dacia,  bound from Oalveston to Rotterdam  in February lasl, with a cargo of cotton.  With Great Britain, however, this  has not been merely a question of  claiming her legal rights (el%, cotton  had been declared contraband months  ago), but the delay has been due to a  sincere deBiro to avoid any act thai  might seriously derange tho commerce  of tho United StateB in this regard or  disturb the friendly relationship which  has been maintained with that country, despite the attrition of war.  The spendthrift manner, however, ii  which the Gormans appear to be able  to throw away high explosives, to'  gether with the tremendous increase in  the olfeotivoness of thoir operations  which arises from this Bourco, renders  it practically imperative.that cotton  be placed on the contraband list at  whatever risk. So essential is thu. supply of cotton to the Germans that it  is reported from authentio sources,  that in order to blind the allies to  what is going on, Germany assumes  the added cost of having the cotton  manufactured into cloth in Sweden and shipped to Germany in that  form to be used in tho manufacture of  gun cotton.  The discussion which has developed  about this question has brought to  light a universal desire to discover  some method by which cotton can be  declared contraband without ruining  the market of the United States plant  era, or alienating the friendly sympathy of the government of the republic.  Along this line it has been suggested that Great Britain purchase .it a  reasonable' figure (samewhat less than  market price) the full amount of Unit1  ed States cotton that would be shipped to countries likely to tranship the  same to Gormany. That this cotton  be not used in such a manner as to  reduce the amount required for the  use of Great Britain and her allies in  the regular way, but that it 1�� stored  and not used, until after the wai'. It  is estimated that tho cost of thiB undertaking would bo between $150-000,- ���  000 and 8200,000,000. j  Large as the amount involved may  seem, it is doubtful if Great Britain  could spend such an amount in any ,  other way, that would provo so effec- .  tive in the successful prosecution of  the war. It would at once shut oft"  Germany's chief and only really extensive source of supply of mat-rial  for the manufacture of high explosives  and it would strengthen and promote  the friendly relationship obtaining between Great Britain and the United  States.  If this double purpose should be successfully accomplished, it would exert  a far reaching and ultimately a determining influence on the progress of the  war, in favor of tho Triple Entente  allies.  The latest despatches indicate that  a common basis of action has     toon  Big Bush fires Raging  From many districts comes reports  ol lorcst fires and in many cases the  flumes have reached points so close to  towns and villages, along the coast  as to alarm the residents, who in  some instances have moved their belongings to places ol saiety.

We guarantee, however, that there will  be no reduction in these prices prior to August Ist, 1916  Profit Sharing with Retail Buyers  On August 1st, 1914, we made the announcement that if we could  make and se.ll at retail 30,000 Ford cars between Auguat I, 1914, and  August I, 1915, we would share profits with the retail purchasers.  We have sold only 16,774 Ford ears in the time specified and, therefore, are unable, to share our profits with those who purchased Ford  cars between the above dates.  Oar plan to profit-share with retail purchasers of Ford cars during  1914-1915 was not successful due to conditions which we could not  possibly foresee at the time we made our announcement lest August.  The war arid the Consequent unsettled conditions of business seriously  affected our sales and increased our manufacturing coots so that  during the last year we did not earn a profit not required for ihe normal  expansion of our business both in a manufacturing and service Way.  However we still have confidence in our profit-sharing plan, but a reslizstion of the  uncertainty of conditions generally makes it advisable to defer any announcement of  future profit-sharing until a later data.

It has been learned, however,  sinoe the beginning of the war    that  Germany has "guns capable of hurling  a ton oi metal a distance of perhaps  36 miles.   In    other   words, Germany  has a gun that can drop a shell from  Calais to Dover and some miles   beyond.   How. many of these guns Germany has nobody but the German authorities know, but it she oan   make  one she can probably make,a   score,  aud when one contemplates a  battery  ef twenty of these guns firmly plaoed  at Calais,   and   not  "only dropping  shells into Dover, but commanding the  English Channel, the immense importance to either side of holding Calais  becomes apparent.  Clearing the Mine Field  The prospeot of a gun hitting a ship  twenty odd miles away does not appear great until one understands how  the range Is obtained. By means ol  floating buoys the'range may be as  precisely obtained as though the target was on land. Control of. the English Channel having been secured long  enough tor the Germans to set out  their-buoys, and destroy tbe mines  that now protect it, other, mines could  be sown, and guarded by a submarine  patrol and shielded by the huge guns,  which, so far as we know, outrange  by several' miles the most powerful  naval guns o| the allies, it might be  possible for Germany to make an attempt at landing a few army corps in  the British Isles. At the present time  ihe approaches to both Calais and  Dover are heavily mined, and any vessel attempting to reach either port  unless in oharge of a pilot with amapj  they could operate'their submarines.  The peril . ol warships, entering the  mined area,' in range of the Calais  guns, the mines themselves and the  submarines would be great.  HOW BRITAIN WOULD ANSWER  However, Germany will have to win  a greater victory than she has yet  achieved in this war before she can  get to Calais, and onoe established in  Calais she will   have to faoe attacks  expected Russia's complete defeat  any   case were misled  stood the situationJjB^^^,-------.,���  Despite the attitude of the ehanoellor  the conference refused to adopt a resolution advocating moderation in toe  Reichstag, whereupon von Bethmann-  Hollweg threatened to resign it bellicose proposals were pressed, declaring  he refused to be held responsible for  the disaster which might follow.  with which the Alabama claims would  look quite small.  With I rue  "Gorman     thoroughness  and    lnok of knowledge ol    the   psychology of other    nations, experts on  international lew are spending    days  , and nights in Berlin preparing   black-  and misunder-|rnail bills against all and sundry   nations."  Premier Okuma and Minister of War  Oka have recently paid a visit to  JNikko to report to the Emperor their  l plans for increasing ths supply of ammunition in accordance with the decision reached to employ all available  sources, both governmental and private, for swelling the nation's output  in aid of Japan's allies in the war.  Afterwards the Premier and war  minister conferred at length with  tbe ambassador of the allied powers.  Orders have been dispatched to the  foundaries and factories of the empire  that are engaged in the production of  munitions to rush their work.  The Corporation of  the City of Kelowna  Tax Sale  proceeds with her task of clearing the  Channel her ships will come into the  range of the British guns at Dover, as  well as the guns .of the British ships  near by. Finally, before any landing  is possible she will have to smuggle  her fleet, or a part of it, out of the  Kiel Canal to guard her transports.  On the whole the Kaiser would appear  to have about exaotly the same chance  of landing an army in England that  he has of winning this war.

It might  be getting nearer to first oauBefl  though to say that the greatest need  is for ready money to buy them with,  for thero are scores of farmers eager  to add to their stock if they could  only raiso the money. This is unfortunate, for a good cow properly cared  for does not take long to return her  purchase price. ,  Several schemes hnve been mooted  to relieve this state of things, but as  yet none havo sufHciently matured to  bring practical results, It is therefore pleasing to learn that Mr. Alan  Wilson haB so far interested himself in  tho mfctter as to form a small local  company for the purpose of bringing  in dairy cows lo turn over to the farmer on the easy payment plan. Mr.  Wilson is leaving shortly for the east  to gather tho first ear load.  Mrs. Wm.

It might servo n useful purpose, to  draw attention just now, when the  shooting season is about to open to  the (act that it is illegal to shoot  pheasants in this district. Under the  watchful care of a few looal enthusiasts pheasants aro gradually becoming  established here, and this year evidence is not wanting that n number  of broods hnvo been successfully reared. It is feared however, that in the  first enthusiasm for indiscriminate  slaughter which usually marks the early days of September, tho numbers of  the pheasantB may be seriously depleted if great care is not taken.  Selecting Seed Potatoes  Por many yeara fanners havo given  attention to tho planting, manuring  and cultivation of thoir potato crop,  but gonorally neglected methods ol  seed selection or breeding. Regarding  live stook it is univorsally recognimd  that it pays to put forth ovory olTort  toward improving tho strain by oare-  ful selection and breeding. The liold  ol plant breeding nnd selection oilers  to every larmer an interesting and  profitable diversion, and it ahould become the farmer's hobby.  Kieperiments havo shown that potatoes grown Irom hill-soleoted seed will  give an increase ol Irom 30 to BO per  oent over the average yield. The bill  selection methods consists in making  individual hill selections in the Held  at digging time, selecting, ol course,  lor uniformity in size and a maximum  number ol merchantable tubers. Eaoh  hill may be given a number and kept  and planted separately the next year  to permit comparison when the progeny is harvested. Another good plan  is to go through lho Held in autumn  just before tho tops die down and  mark, by a twig or stake, the hills  showing most vigor and resistance to  disease. When harvest comes tbe hills  so marked may be saved for seed, discarding the hills which do not come  up to standard.

Burtch  Phone 180  Fall Iresbmiin j of  Dairy Cows  There are so many advantages . in  having dairy oows some fresh in she  .fall,< while the disadvantages are but  very few, if any, -that, one wonders  'why so little progress is made in that  direetion. Those who have silos, and  no one oan afford to dairy without a  silo in these days of high prioed land,  should be especially anxious to. have  at least two-thirds ol their'oows oalve  in the tall of the year.  September,is a good month to have  the oows freshen. If grass is short, at  that time it can be supplemented with  silage and ths neoessary grain, and  thus the flow of milk brought up to  the largest amonnt possible. Later  with an abundance of suceulent feed  at hand, the milk flow oan easily be  maintained throughout (be wil  months. Then, 'by the time gxass  oomee and tha oows havs given milk  for seven', of sight months and ths  flow tends to diminish, U will be revived when the oows are turned on  good pasture, whikrln-July and August when ths flies are bad and conditions are against., a liberal flow of  milk, the-oows are either dry or very  soon wfll be.  In other words,.the.(tow that calves  in tha fall has a muoh better opportunity to produoe a large amount of  milk and trotter fat in a season than  ths one that freshens in the spring.  This is readily appreciated upon a little reflection. Suppose a "oow freshens  in Hay when pastures are good. She  gives a large flow of milk during May  and June, first because feed is abundant, and second because she has-reoently freshened. But no sooner has  shs started, than the hot months of  July and August with fries-and perhaps dried up pastures are upon her  and the milk flow immediately drops.  When oooler weather returns and grass  revives there will be a slight Increase  in the yield of milk, but a full flow  normal for that period cannot be obtained till the cow has calved again.  This means that a herd of low-producing cows must be carried through tbe  winter months, with profits greatly  reduced, but the labor remaining practically the same. It does not take  quite so. long to milk a sow giving, a  small amount of milk as one producing a large flow, but It requires just  aa muoh labor to feed and care for a  low produoer as for Vibe highest producer in the world, and the task of  doing the other chores is the same for  all kinds of oows.  A Twenty Per Cent Grain  It is safe to say that a given oow  will produoe twenty psr cent more milk  and butter fat when she calves in she  fall than whan she conns fresh is the  spring. This increase is production  should in itself be enough to cause any  dairyman to at least have the majority of his oows freshen in the tall,  but there are more factors favoring  ths practice. One of these is the higher pries whioh dairy products command in winter than in summer. An-.  other is cheap labor. Labor is cheapest during the period when milk and  butter bring the highest prioes on the  market. Then, too, the farmer himself oan devote more time to the cows  in winter when farm work is reduced  to a minimum and his time is not so  valuable, The first three months after  spring opens are the busiest in the  whole year for the farmer, juat when  oows that oalve in the spring need the  most attention. The inevitable result  is more or lass neglect, and neglect  early in the lactation neriod is mighty  expansive business.  When it comes to raising skim , milk  oalves, those born in the fall soon  learn to eat grain and therefore grow  faster than those . that are dropped  just as grass comas aad do not learn  to eat grain before extreme beat and  millions ol files begin to make lib  miserable for thsm. Then, tbo, fall  calves, H intended for the dairy, can  be bred to drop their first oalves in  the faH aa two-year-olds. Finally; befall oalves make more rapid  the heifers will be larger as  fcwo-yeer-olds than they would be if  bora in the Spring, Changing from  spring to fall calving should be  brought about as rapidly as poeetbb,  for H means more milk psr oow and  oonesquently larger profits.-Suooeseful  'arming.   -o ���  Reports of Kurdish atrocities ia Armenia near BitHs state that 9,000 men  women and, children'have been massacred there, mutilated bodies strew the  banks of the Tigris. In the region of  the upper Euphrates also thousands ot  Armenians have been Icfllsd. The British army now ascending the Tigris and  Euphrates is still far tram the esses  of these atrooHtes, but it will unquestionably push on all the more vigorously because of them in the hope ot  saving some part of the Christians  or Armenia from their bloodthirsty  toes. Twenty thousand of the people  are"  is-aansasn  'JMnMtiM?  Nine years ago the livestock branch  of the federal department of agrioulture, in co-operation with oertain record associations representing breeds  ol dairy cattle, began to reoord the  performances of pure bred milking  oows. Each record association agreed  upon a standard of yield for cows ol  its respective broed to qualify for reg:  intra'ion,' while the livestock oommio-  sioner formulated regulations under  which the tests were carried out. At  the end of each year a report of the  work has been issued, containing  list of the' animals that qualified for  registration during the year, their  breed, ago, ownership, milking period,  productUon of milk and fat, and such  other information as might reasonably be looked for in- an official re-  part.     * ...  Each year the work has increased,  until the seventh report, just issued,  contains no less than 11*2 pages of information. During the year 419 oows  qualified for registration, including  196 Holsteins, 133 Ayrshires, 36 Jerseys, 9 Guernseys, 14 French-Canadians and 36 .Shorthorns. The highest records made were; Shorthorns,  15,535 pounds milk, 840 pounds fat:  French Canadian, 10,767 pounds milk,  453 pounds fat; Guernsey, 11,445  pounds milk, 520 pounds fat; Holstein  23,717 pounds milk, 834 pounds tat;  Jersey 15,211 pounds milk, 754 pounds  fat; Ayrshire 16,696 pounds milk, 739  pounds fat.  This report tor-the second time con-  tains an appendix containing the records of cows whioh produced sufficient'  milk and fat to qualify for registration  but failed to calve within fifteen  months after the commencement of-the  test, as required by tbe registrations.  This report Is of special interest to  dairy farmers who are anxious to  build up the milking qualities of their  herds. Copies will be sent to those  who apply for them to the publication branch ot the department of eg  riouHure at Ottawa.  Government Bulletin  on Swine Raising  The second edition of Bulletin No.  17 of the Federal live stook branch,  entitled "Swine Husbandrj in Canada'  has bean issued, and may be had on  application to the Publication Branch  of the Department ot Agriculture -. at  Ottawa. Tbe interest in swine raising  stimulated, no doubt by ths high values of pork products, made suoh t  demand for information on this subject  that tba first, edition printed last yean  was'quickly exhausted. This edition  brings up to date statistics with respect to pedigree registration and tbe  trade in hog products. It is shown  that the total exports tor' the fiscal  year ending March 31, 1916, amounted  to 166,046,619 pounds, as against 37,  661,168 pounds tbe previous year. This  bulletin covers the whole field of swine  raising giving the results ol official experiments as well as the practloes of  successful farmer swine raisers. An  Interesting seotion describes tho system of feeding hogs in Denmark where  combinations of food are prepared according to their food units in which  one pound of grain, wheat, barley,  peas, corn, etc., constitutes one food  unit which is equal to 8 pounds of  mangels, 4 pounds boiled potatoes, 5  pounds alfalfa, 6 pounds skim milk or  12 pounds whey. It is shown that  the diet is varied in a definite wjv_for  pigs of different ages.  MAKING CHEESE  Tha grsat demand foe oheese in the  war sons has induced many butter factories in New. Zealand to change to  the manufacture of oheese. It is stated  it takes two and a half gallons of  milk to produce a pound of butter,  .while one gallon of milk will produoe  a pound of cheese and tbe former  wholesales at 33 oents per pound, aad  the latter at 18 cents psr pound. One  company has opened 33 cheese factor  be, it b stated.

The Smiling Schoolboy
The examination hall is a perennial
source of merriment to aU but the perspiring youth grappling single-handed
with the CJoliuths whom an unkind
fate rises up at thia most critical
stage in his career to bar the way to
honor and fame. Like Goldsmith's
"boiling tremblers," who, in the presence of the village schoolmaster had
"learned to trace the day's disasters
in his morning faco," the average pupil is quick to presage evil as he eagerly scans tho morning face of the
examine)', or tackles an examination
paper with no friondly prompter at
hand to lighten tho dark path. To
add to his confusion, somo sub-uon-
scious impish sprite dulls "his intellect
and disiorts his mental vision at tho
psychological moment when all his faculties aro required for the work in
hand. Tho result, whilo it not infrequently spells disaster for the pupil,
contributes to the gaiety of the world.
The following choice specimens of
howlers are culled from a recent number of tho Literary Digest. History is"
the hurdle at whioh most of the pupils
fall. Harrow boys told the examiner*
that •
"Korke's Drift was a battle at sea.
"Tho Whito Man's Grave is the grave
where General Gordon died in. Fellahs are donkoys.
'HIn William Ill's reign Dysentery got
permission to worship."
One hopeful deposes, with a trac© of
secret bitterness, that "an abstract
noun is something you can't see when
you are looking at it," while another
disrespectfully announces that "the
masculine of vixen is vicar."
Thn dilliculties of mathematics are
here reflected.
"Algebra was tho wife of Euclid.
"Algebraical symbols are used whon
you don't know what you are talking
about.
"Geometry teaches us how to bisqx
angels.
*Tho line opposite to the right angle
in a right-angled triangle is called tho

"Parallel lines uro the same distance

For the tomato, the world ia indebted to Peru, "according to an article contribution by Edward Albes to
the current number of the bullet/in of
lhe 1'an American Union.
The name "tomato" seemB to be of
A/.tec origin given as tomatl by some-
authorities and as xitomate by others,
nnd still persists -in some fow of tho
older Mexican town names', suoh as
Tuinatlan, Tomatopee, - etc., but the
general concensus of opinion among
botanists seems to be that thc plant
and its culture for edible purposes originated in Peru, whence it spread to
other section'- of the Americas. It is
certain, at any rate, that it was
kno^vn and cultivated for its fruit centuries l:efore the Columbian discovery.
That the cultivated tomato was
known to some of the European botan
ists over !Hi0 yearn ago is ovidenced by
the fact that two large varieties were
described by Matthialus as early as
1654, but for many years iu was only
in sou thorn Europo that tho value of
the fruit for use in soups and as a
salad waB recognized. It was quite
generally used in Spain and Italy dur-
in the seventeenth century, but in
England and in northern Europe generally the plant was grown only in
botanical gardens as a curiosity and
for ornamental purposes, ft \"as seldom eaten, being commonly regained
as unhealthy and even poisonous. This
belief probably arose because of the
close resemblance of tho plant to its
allied relative the nightshade, or bolla-
