The equipment of the  two classes in the tvayof tools and  furniture and appliances, had cost  the government over $2,000 to in.  stal, and they were willing to turn  'all this over to the city for $500.  Mr. Bigger took occasion to  again urge upon the council the  need of aewer connection for the  public school. He fully realized  the difficulty at the present time,  but he asked the council to at  least take some steps to get estimates and see what the scheme  would cost.  Mayor Sutherland said he was  afraid it was entirely out of the  question lo carry out the work on  the original plan as laid out for  the whole city. The council could  only put in a temporary pipe line,  and the cost would have to come  out of current revenue. Of this,  there was no hope thia vear.  It was decided, however, that  the Health Committee should investigate the whole question and  get an estimate of the probable  cost.  Aid. Rattenbury reported to the  council concerning the recent visit  of a representative of the Hospitals  Commission regarding the securing of accommodation in Kelowna  for a number of invalid soldiers.  It waa decided to forward a  communication to headquarters  signifying the council's approval of  the idea, and offering to do all  possible to help in making the  necessary arrangements.

Then they tried to  qualify as gsnuine subjects for first aid  by an exhibition oi "Pyramids," each  one followed by a sensational collapse  whioh made some of the stout fathor��  in ths audience literally gasp with  horror.   1  There was an intermission here oi   e  The temporary loan by-law to  raise $10,000 for present needs  against current expenses waa finally passed.  Aid. Rogerson reported that the  cartaker of the park had commenced his duties on the 15th of tin-  month. The parks committee had  been making enquires and obtaining estimates for the construction  of a email tool house aad shelter  for the cemetery.  Aid. Buck recomended that the  new regulation regarding the fire  calls go into effect on March 1st,  and that the new cards be distridut-  ed by the meter reader on his next  round. It was also arranged that  the notice should appear in the  paper.

Ennis said he agreed with the  suggestion ol the president that  good strong oommittee be appointed  to go into the matter. He believed  that incorporation would be the beet  plen. The Association had tried  every other way. The first ear oi feed,  he recalled, had been paid for by six  of the members signing a joint note at  the bank for the amount. He believed  that' as they had made a success with  sugar, that the purchases oi the Association might include hams, bacon,  I lard, and other imperishable goods.  I Mr. C. E. Weeks opposed the plan as  I he thought that better results could  be obtained by amalgamating some of  the existing organizations, thui i.nnli  ling them to conduct operations on a  larger scale.  A vote being taken, howover, showed  nineteen in lavor of-incorporation and  only two against. It was therefore  resolved that thc directors, with 1 bo  addition oi Hr. Hiddleton, should po  into details and report to a subsequent general meeting.  A proposal to start a delivery system was voted down unanimously.    /  There was considerable discussion re  garding the possibility ol establishing  a collecting system for e?gs, and seeking an outside market, but it appeared to be the general impression that  the regularly available supply was nut  largo enough as yet to do much more  than take care of local needs.  There .was a notable lack of cnthu -  iasm when the question ol a poultry  show wns 'mentioned, which seeuic-l Id  indioate, as one speaker put it, thnt  the Association had become mom Interested in feed purchasing I ban in  poultry showing.

THE    MINISTER    OF    FINANCE  REQUESTS  THZ   PEOPLE   OF   CANADA   TO  BEGIN NOW  TO  SAVE   MONEY   POR  THE  NEXT WAR LOAN  He commended the secretary, Mr. A.  Notley, ior hia valuable servios ior  the Association.  The financial statement, whieh was  next read by tba secretary, showed  that the total disbursements during  the year had been 13,84)4.40. Thia included a eaeh balance in the bank ol  $207.16. 01 this expenditure *ol'8.4o  had been for flour aad ieed, and 11133  .7(1 ior sugar. There had ban a gross  profit on ieed sales ol IS 10.53, and en  sugar ol ��34.30, end membership fees  had brought in 1164. Against this  were general expenses, $186.04, wagee,  $377, leaving a net profit oa the year  ol f 186.80.  During the year the Ellison Milling  Co.: had donated a cup for local competition at the show, and the directors  and some oi ths members had given  another to be competed for by ths  whole district.

In the past the Association has done  much (good work in fostering a better  understanding between the business  men of the city, and alao in curtailing  the ruinous ays tern of indiscriminate  credit which prevailed a year or two  ago. It is not proposed' that work of  this nature should be entirely lest  sight of in the larger interesta nf the  Board of Trade. The sub-oommittee  of three merchant* appointed by the  Board of Trade will also serve as an  executive committee for the merchants'  section, and the members of this committee will be recommunded each year  by the merohantB.  These conditions had been drawn up  as a result of negotiations between a  special commiUee of the merchants  and the Board of Tradp executive, and  the resolution putting them into effect  was carried with only one diasentiant  vote.  Votes of* thanks were pass*! to the  secretary, Mr. C. H. JacVaon, and to  the president. Mr. W. Hau^, nnd as  the Association had no liabilities, it  ���was decided to cancel all outstanding  fees.

Mr. Silcock has very  generously cleaned the place out  for us, for a very moderate sum indeed, and we wish to thank him  for his kindness.  You will remember that last  week we referred to the news we  had received of our late assistant  scout master Ken. Jepson. Since  that column was published, S. M.  Weddell has received a letter from  him.  He writes in part as follows: "I  get the 'Kelowna Record' every  week from home, so do not think  I have forgotten the troop. I keep  myself well posted as to their doings. I do not know whether you  know what happened to me after  1 left Kelowna, so 1 will give you  a short outline of my doings, so  that you can see what sort of life  your ex-assistant scout master has  been living.  After I left the 2nd C. M. R. in  Victoria, I joined, or rather was  transferred, into the Medical Corps,  and came to England with them.  I was in Moore Barracks Hospital,  for nine months where I attained  the high and noble rank of coporal  in charge of a surgical 'Ward. 1  tired of this, so tried for a commission in the R. F. C. but naturally  did not get it. I then joined the  4th Canadian Division Signalling  Company, Canadian Engineers,  who I am now with. 1 have been  in France nearly six months, although it does not seem anywhere  near so long. My address is ���  Sapper K. B. Jepson, No 50599,  4th Canadian Division Signallers,  Canadian Engineers, B. E. F.  France.  At the moment of writing I am  established in quite a decent little  billet, a French farmhouse, quite a  change, believe me, from all the  various shapes of mud holes 1 have  been living in for the past few  months.

Phone 312  Says Undersea Freighter  Has Been Captured  An American engineer, of the  transport Mongolia, has made the  statement that the German submarine freighter is captured and  lying in Plymouth harbour.  He said that the British had captured 400 enemy submarines and  that 187 of them were in Plymouth  chained together, and lying in the  centre of a hugenetwoik of chains  attached to buoys and wharvet.  Capt. Koenig, commander of the  submarine and his crew were in  English jails. Photographs of the  Deutschland wrapped with chains,  which held to others in the harbour, were on exhibition, and it  was generally known in shipping  circles that the freighter had been  captured.  Reorganization of Canadian  Reserve  Details of the re-organization of  the Canadian troops along ter-  ritorial lines have been announced  at Ottawa.  There are 26 reserve battalions  which will act as reinforcements  for the battalions at the front, British  Columbia battalions reinforcing  British Columbia battalions.  British Columbia has four reserve  battalions which will reinforce five  battalions from British Columbia at  the front. The four reserve battalions are commanded by Lieut.-  Col. J. H. D. Hulme. Lieut-Col. A.  E. Caipenter, Lieut.-Col. E. C. J.  Henneker and Lieut.-Col. G. H.  Kirkpatrick. Ontario has seven  reserve battalions, Manitoba and  Saskatchewan five, Alberta two and  Quebec four. Of Quebec's four  only one is all French-Canadians.
