KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, AUGUST 2. 1917.-4 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  School Entrance  Examination Results  Nineteen Pupils Pass   -   Miss  Flora Ball Wins Governor-  General's Medal     ~^  Party Pay Visit to  Experimental Farm  Sumrrterland Station is Objective of Farmers' Institute  Excursion  The results of the High School  Entrance Examination, which was  held on the 25th, 26th and 27th  ult., at 95 centres throughout the  province, have just been announced by the Department of Education.  The total number of candidates  was 3,698, out of which 2,627 were  successful in passing. The honor  of securing first place rests with  Mildred L. Gordon, of the Selkirk  school, South Vancouver, who  secured 864 marks out of 1,100.  The ten bronze medals donated  annually by His Excellency, the  Governor - General, are awarded,  as usual, to the ten Leading  pupils in the ten cities having  having the highest number of passes. As there are also available  this year twenty additional medals,  donated by His Royal Highness,  late Governor-Generel, ten of these  have been given to the ten pupils  leading their schools in the various  rural municipalities, five to the  leading pupils of the rural and assisted schools, and the remaining  five to the five leading pupils from  the province at large : but in no  case lias more than one medal  been awarded to any one school.  It should be stated, however, that  this is probably the last year in  which extra medals will be available. Following are the names of  the medal winners in this district:  KELOWNA - Flora M.

Mrs. Alex. Watt, on behalf of  herself and family, desires to thank  the many fiienda for the kindness  and sympathy shown in their bereavement.  Provincial constable McDonald,  formerly of Kelowna but now of  Kamloops, was down for a few  days' visit this week. Mrs. McDonald (nee Miss Fanny Copeland),  has been visiting wilh her parents  for the paat week or two.  The Kelowna Farmers' Institute  took a party of twenty members  on Saturday to the Dominion Experimental station at Summerland.  They went by launch, arriving at  the old wharf soon after midday,  when -the superintendent, Mr. R.  H. Helmer, received them.  This wharf is about half a mile  from the farm and is very difficult  of access, but a new whnrf will be  built shortly.  What struck the visitors most as  they mounted the hill was the contrast between the wild sage-brush  land just off the farm boundary  and the fine grain crops on the cultivated land���lhe land being on  the same, level and apparently of  the same quality. -  The site of the administrative  buildings is on the high land, level  with the railway bridge over Trout  Creek, the K.V.R. running through  the property. A glorious view over  the lake aud mountains around is  enhanced by the green lawns and  beautiful flower beds, where a multiplicity of flowers are grown.  The reason for having a large  flower garden is to make the experimental station more interesting  and attractive to members of Women's Institutes and lady visitors  from farms.  A large number of selected roses  are being grown to test those which  will best stand the cold winters,  and a magnificent display of several hundred tests of sweet peas.  These, like all other vegetable and  crop tests, are clearlj marked so  that visitors can take note of different varieties which they like, pnd  can note ihe result when special  treatment is used, such as difference in fertilizer or manure, number of cultivations, distance of  planting and amount of seed used.  Several varieties of practically  all kinds of vegetable crops are  being experimented with. Many  varieties of tomatoes are being  grown, staked, unslaked, pruned  and unpruned  The best shaped and earliest  tomatoes they find are Burpee's  Earliest, Earliana and Bonny Best.  These experiments should be of  use in the valley to those shipping  " semi ripes " and to establish the  best variety of tomato for the canneries, which require a tomato  which can be easily skinned and  has a small percentage of waste,  The beat results for early fruit  were shown by plants which had  been transplanted two or three  times.  Mr. Helmer is working under  difficulties so far as he has no  greenhouses yet to raise his tomato  and other early plants, having only  hot beds which in a cold season  are difficult to keep at a uniform  temperature.  In potatoes a great variety of  tests were examined, and all seemed to promise fine yields. There  are variety tests, tests with and  without manures, and plantings at  different distances apart.  Mr. Helmer, from experience so  far has a preference for "Gold  Coin." He stated that all seed  had been treated with disinfectant  before planting, so that  stocks o( clean seed are expected  this year. Those members of the  Institute who wish to have a three  pound sample of selected stock of  any variety of potatoes grown and  recommended by the station can  procure it by applying to the Institute secretary any time before Jan.  1st, 1918. If grown carefully on  clean land this is an excellent opportunity for farmers to raise up a  clean stock, which is at present  verv scarce in the valley.  Some large plots showing very  heavy yields of corn, wheat, barley, oats, roots, fodder plants, arid  grasses were noted. A series of  rotation experiments is being carried on, and. some useful information along this line will soon be  available.  The apole orchard is divided into six plots, with the same varieties  His Majesty, himself an old naw man, chatting with Sir David Beatty  on the flagship during the recent royal visit to the grend fleet.  Introduce New  Income-Tax Bill  Tax is Graduated from Four to  Twenty-five per cent.  (OaaUaaai oa Asm 4.1  The federal income tax bill  which has been foreshadowed for  some time was introduced into the  House last week by Sir Thos.  White, Minister of Finance. All  incomes over $3,000 in the case of  married men, and $2,000 of single  men were to be required to cop-  tribute on a sliding scale from four  per cent, up to twenty-five per cent,  for incomes over $100,000.  Sir Thomas said the scale of in-'  come taxation had been fixed as  follows:  Four per cent, on all income of  unmarried men and widowers  without children, exceeding $,2000;  and married men on incomes exceeding $3,000. In addition there  would be a supertax of 2 per cent,  on all incomes between six and  ten thousand dollars; 5 per cent, on  incomes between ten and twenty  thousand dollars; 8 per cent, on all  incomes between twenty and thirty  thousand dollars; 15 per cent, on  incomes between fifty and one hun-  good^dred thousand dollars.  The minister explained that  corporations and joint stock companies would be liable to the 4 per  cent, taxation, but in the case of  shareholders thev would be credited wifli the amount paid by the  companies. Business firms were  also to be exempt to the extent of  the amount paid on business profits.  Foreign companies will pay a tax  on their earnings in this country.  The minister stated that the income tax will apply to the year  1917 and that everyone would be  expected to make a declaration as  to their income before February  28th, 1918. There is provision in  the bill for appeal and collection,  but no time limit has been placed  on it. Sir Thomas believed that  after the war is over this legislation  should he reviewed with a view to  readjustment in the event pf it being-considered that it might prevent capital coming into   Canada.  Land Settlement  Board Appointed  Okanagan Valley is Unrepresented on the Board  The personnel of the new land  settlement board is as follows:  Maxwell Smith, chairman; Duncan  Munro, Terrace B. C; M. H. Nelems  Vancouver; Charles R. Ward,  Cranbrook, B. C; John A. McDonald, Nanaimo. The commissioners  will report in Victoria for organization purposes on Monday.  The it is understood that the  chairman of the commission will  make his headquarters in Victoria,  while the other members will be  in charge of different sections of  the province. Mr. McDonald will  look after the work on Vancouver  Island. Mr. Munro will be in  charge in Northern British Columbia. Mr. Nelems will have the  Fraser Valley and much of the fruit  growing areas in his district, while  Mr. Ward will have control of a  large portion of southwest British  Columbia.  Some dissapointment will no  doubt be felt that neither the north  nor the South Okanagan ridings,  leading agricultural districts of the  province, are represented on the  board.

Messrs. E. Hogan and W. Gibson, acting on behall of the Dept.  of Agriculture, were in town yesterday, looking over the plots in  the various crop competitions, Mr.  Hogan was judging the potatoe  crops entered in the Farmers' Institute contests, while Mr. Gibson  made a preliminary scoring of the  Boya' and Girls' Club competitions  Bankers' Live Stock  Competitions  Boys & Girls May Win Prize*  With Calves and Pigs  Through the action of thc rr in-  istei of agriculture, the Hon. Martin Burrell, arrangements have  been made to have the Canadian  Bankers' Association co-operate  with the Department of Agriculture  in providing a liberal sum of money to be offered in prizes for calvea  and pigs exhibited by boys and  girls under 17 years of age, at  country or township fairs.  These competitions are known  as the " Canadian Bankers' Competitions," and are linked up with  the activities of the livestock branch  of the Dominion department of  agriculture. They represent an  effort to increase interest in livestock, and constitute a part of the  active campaign for more and better stock inauguiated and carried  on by the Hon. Mr. Burrell through  his department. The generous  support accorded to the movement by the Canadian Bankers'  Association affords a practical demonstration of the attitude of the  banks towards the livestock industry, and the active participatidn of  the association in this campaign is  bound to strengthen and create  general interest in farm livestock.  Canadian Bankers' competitions  will be held at the Kelowna Fall  Fair this year, and boys 'and girls  should lose no time in finding out  all about them. The calves and  pigs must be ted at least five weeks  by the boys and girls who exhibit  them so that it is very important  to act promptly in securing a copy  of the rules and other information.  This may be obtained from Mr.  R. L. Dalgleish or from any of the  local banks.  ���h might be mentioned briefly  that competitors must be under 17  to be eligible. No entry fee will  be charged and not more than  one member of a family will be  allowed to compete in any one  class. Calves and pigs exhibited  must have been born c n or after  March 15th, 1917. and must be  the property of the exhibitor or hia  or her parent or guardian. Exhibitors must feed and care for the  animals at least five weeks before  the fair. Grade bull calves or boars  are not eligible.  The prizes are $5 for the firat  down to $1 for the fifth with a ribbon for the sixth in each class.  A proper entry form must be  procured and filled out.  Mrs. Buswell and two children  from Vancouver, are staying this  week with Mrs. Geo. Barrat, Glenn  Avenue.  Mr. W. C. Duggan on Friday  last accompanied her brother Mr.  Lloyd to the coast, the latter having gone there under medical  advice.  Flower show exhibitors are reminded that flowers and plants  must be in place in the aquatic  pavilion by 10.30 on Saturday  morning, August 4th. Tea and ice  cream will be served and proceeds  given to the Red Cross and hospital aid.  In this issue is given a list of the  prizes offered at the Fall Fair for  fancy work, sewing, knitting, and  other women's works This is published in advance to give all a  chance to get their exhibits ready  in time.  Kitchener's Sister Believes  Him Aiive  According to the Morning Post,  Mrs. Parker, sister of Lord Kitchener, opening a charity fete at Hastings, said she did not share the  general belief that her brotherwent  down in the Hampshire. It was  the first time she haa publicly announced her opinion on the subject, but it is her firm belief he ia  still alive and would one day  return. Ever since the loss of the  Hampshire she has tried to find  out what happened to her brother.  PETERMAN-On Tuesday, July  24th. to the wife of W. J. Peter-  man, a daughter.  The five girla at the telephone  office struck work last Friday.  Their grievance chiefly is that the  wages paid them are too small for  the work done, and that the wages  paid are inequitable: that girls of  long experience are paid less than  newer but more favored employees.  The Company, that is manager  Dobie, on the other hand maintains that the girla left theii work  without proper negotiations;  that a rise in wagea was due, and  would have been given thia month.  In the meantime however, the  company has obtained temporary  assistance from other valley points  and now lefusea to listen to the  strikers at all.

Caring For Returned  Soldiers  Interesting Statistics Regarding the  Work of Returned Soldiers'  Commission  Some interesting statistics have  just b ;cii published regarding the  work of the Provincial Returned  Soldiers' Commission which go to  show that up to the present at any  rate the returned men are being  well cared for and that employment is being readily found lor  those who are sufficiently recovered from their injuries, and who  desire it.  In his report to HtJn. Dr. Maclean  provincial secretary, Mr. Hill, secretary of the Provincial Commission, quotes the under-noted facts:  Ntarly 2,000 on Records  The total number of men on  the Commission's records are 1919  Of these there have been invalided  home to Canada from overseas for  various reasons 1,634; 50 men  have been recalled for duty in  Canada, and 37 have taken their  discharges and returned home on  account of stoppage of working  pay. There are also included in  the Commission's records 139 sundry cases, including Reservists, ex-  Imperial Service, Naval men. fitc,  and 59 C.E.F. men who have been  discharged before going overseas.  There are 708 men undergoing  treatment at the convalescent hospitals and sanatoria operated by  the Military Hospitals Commission  in the province, and 68 men belonging to British Columbia have  been diverted to that Commission's  institutions in other provinces. Seventeen men are taking courses in  the vocational retraining provided  by the Military Hospitals Commission.  Good Service���Five Unemployed  That good service has been rendered by the local employment  bureau, acting as sub-committees  of the Commission through the  province, is evidenced by the fact  that civil employment has been  provided for 623 men; of these  591 are men returned Irom overseas and 32 men who have not  been overseas. In addition a number of men have enIisted-59 for  overseas duty, 45 for home guard  duty, and 3 for naval service.  The committees' files show only  5 unfilled applications for employment. In connection with the  foregoing it is of interest to note  that some 1,300 positions have  been provided from time to time  for applicants to the Employment  Committees.  A list of the positions provided  by the Commission includes practically every trade followed in the  province. Of the 623 men employed at the date of the return, it is  noted that 154 are employees of  the Federal Government and 63  of the Provincial Government.  So far the Commission has nothing but satisfaction to express with  regard to the assistance received  from employers along this line,  and they are confident that they  can continue to count upon receiving their heartiest support in the  future  Messrs. Whiteside, Pauline and  Nelson, the three members of the  British Columbia Soldiers' Vote  Commission, who recently left  London on their return to Canada,  refused on the evening of their departure to disclose the probable  character of their report which they  said will not be drawn up until  they icach British Columbia.  Edited by Pioneer. July 31st, 1917  In accordance with the warning  which we gave last week we have  to report that the following" have  yet to hand in their camp diaries,-  Patrol Leaders Parkinson and  Groves, Seconds B. Davis and C.  Gaddes, and Scouts Taylor, Rowcliffe, Copeland, Marshall, Small,  Thomas and Gaddes. As we  are going to keep on publishing  this list untill all the diaries are in,  it will be interesting to see who is  going to crawl in last. As the  column is written on each Tuesday, any of those in the above list  who do not wish their names to  appear in next weeks paper must  hand in their diaries and maps by  Tuesday.  The Scoutmaster has received  the following letter from Troop  Leader Harris of Summerland  Troop :-  "On behalf of Summerland B. P.  Scouts I wish to thank you and the  Kelowna Scouts for their kindness  to P. L. Smith. P. L. Smith was  delighted with the way in which he  was treated and certainly enjoyed  himself immensely. The Scouts  here appreciate very much^ this  kindness and hope that some day  they will be able to return the favor.  Again thanking you,  I remain,  Yours Sincerely,  J. A. HARRIS.  Sec. Summerland Troi p."  We also received a letter from  P. L. Smith himself thanking us,  Summerland was happily represented at our camp in the person  of P. L. Alex Sir ith, who made  friends of us all during his short  stay with us, and we hope that  next year we shall again have the  pleafure of entertarning a guest  from our neighbouring troop.  Watch for the posters of the  sports to be given by the Kelowna  Aquatic Association next Thursday  and pick out all the events in which  you can enter. The more entries  the better; we cannot all hope to  be first, but we can do our best,  and make some races anyway; In  the relay running race and relay  swimming race for teams of four,  two of each team must be under  15 years of age, for the swimming  race (which is for scouts only,) and  under 16 for the running, which is  open for everybody. In the land  boat race we want a team of six.  How a happy outing such as out  recent camp can be sometimes  turned into a tragedy was illustrated the other day in connection  with the camp of one of the Winnipeg troops. This troop was  camping on the shores of Lake  Winnipeg and the Scoutmaster, his  assistant and two scouts went out  in a boat. The boat upset and  both the Scoutmaster and his assistant were drowned. The two  scouts fortunately were both saved  by swimming to shore. One of  our camp rules has always been  that no one can go out in the boat  without permission and the above  sad accident shows how very important it is that this rule should be  strictly obeyed.  a        a  a  Mr. Cameron and P,Ls. Calder  and Groves have some fine results  to show of their work with the  camera at camp, fit while we would  not like to see all the snaps thrown  on the screen at the picture theatre,  still they make a great collection  and will be most interesting mementoes to look back upon in the  years to come. We understand  that bathing, in Little Penticton  Lake will never be so popular  again.  Members of the troop will wear  their uniforms on Regatta Day and  will assist as much as possible with  the carrying on of the sports; keeping back the crowd from the course  and so forth.  Proper Methods of Making  Buffer  Few people trouble themselves  about the reason that creamery  butter is to be preferred to dairy  butter, but by way of introduction  to Bulletin No. 53 of the Dairy and  Cold Storage Branch, Ottawa, commissioner Ruddick furnishes an  explanation. Incidentally he also  points out that a good deal of  damage is done to the trade by  inferior dairy butter.  The bulletin for which Mr. Geo.  H. Barr, chief of the dairy division  is responsible, in concise terms  describes the whole process of  butter making, tells the utensils  that should be used and how they  should be used, gives the results  of experiments with the separator  as regards temperature and variations in speed, deals with the care  of cream in cooling and preparing  for churning and in pasteurizing,  gives expert counsel as to salting  and working and points to the advisability of attractive packing in  parchment paper. He also points  out the requirements of the law in  branding or marking and supplies  practical hints on care of the utensils. Finally, he tells in terse terms  how to get the best results in farm  dairy work.  Both the bulletin and a blue  print of the plan tor a dairy that  is given can be had free by application to the Dairy Commissioner  or to the Publications Branch, Department of Agriculture, Ottawa.  Are Good Cows Misjudged?  Recently three cows that stood  side by side were tested for nine  consecutive k milkings. The firs'  cow had an average test of 3.7 pn  cent, of fat, the maximum and minimum tests being 2.9 and 5.5.  The second cow had an average  for the nine tests of 4.2 with a maximum and minimum tests of 2.4  and 5.4. The average test for the  third cow was 2.6, with extremes  of 2.0 and 4.0,  Hence it is evident that the laudable desire to know what a certain  cow's milk tests for fat may be  defeated entirely if only one sample  is run through the machine.  In the light of the example given  above, as well as hundreds of  other instances on record, it is safe  to conclude that a fair method is  to test a composite sample of five  or six milkings taken at intervals  when the cow is in normal condition. This plan has given good  results in the cow testing work of  the dairy division, Ottawa. Write  for full particulars, so that your  good cows may not be misjudged  on an isolated test.  While attempting to cross the  Kootenay river on a raft, Charles  W. Drisdale, of Ottawa, chief of  the geological survey, and his assistant, William J. Grey, a univer  sity student of Vancouver, were  drowned last week when the raft  was upset by the turbulent water.  The bodies were not recovered as  they were lost sight of-in the swift-  flowing stream. George M. Smith,  of Salmon Arm, was on the raft,  but succeeded in reaching shore.  L. D. Burting, geologist, of Ottawa,  and Frank Emmons, of Vancouver,  made the crossing in safety.

The House was astonished to  Greece has agreed to S. rbia's  request for establishment of �� temporary Serbian capital at Ssloniki.

Apples For the  at the Front  An appeal is again being made  for boxes of apples to be sent as  it Christmas gift to the B.C. boys  at the front. - Last year, it will be  remembered, the Vancvr. branch  of the Red Cross gathered together  several carloads, which were forwarded on to the old country for  distribution amongst the men. As  it happened, these apples were the  only fresh fruit received by them  during all the winter months and  judging' by the letters received they  were a very welcome gift, made  doubly so from the knowledge that  thev had been sent by the people  of their own province.  Last year, the secretary states in  his letter, many of the Okanagan  growers excused themselves from  contributing on account of not being asked earlier in the season,  hence the present early appeal. If,  he says, the growers could only  read the letters received acknowledging the gifts, and hear the n any  expressions of appreciation, people  would not hesitate to give double  the number of boxes which have  hitherto been given.  Last year three carloads were  gathered from Vancouver, while  less than 500 boxes came from the  Okanagan-the land of the apple,  It might be mentioned that only  the best keeping winter apples are  wanted as the early fall ones spoil  before they can be got to their  destination. The C.P.R. and C.N.R.  deliver the fruit in car lots to St.  John, N.B., free of all expense, and  the Canadian Tied Cross Society  takes charge of it from that point.  Local arrangements have not yet  been completed regarding the assembling of the fruit here, but particulars will be announced later,  Growers, however, should bear  the matter in mind and reserve a  few boxes from their crop for the  boys at the front.  Sweet Pea Society Holds  Annual Display  The third annual exhibition of  this society was again held at the  residence of Mr. H. B. D. Lvsons,  on Thursday last, and was a decid  ed success. The fine display of  bouquets was a great improvement  on the previous year's both :i  arrangement and blending of the  colors. The entries were not so  numerous, but the exhibitors deserve great credit in putting up  such a show with such an adverse  season.

Burnyeat, of the Bank  of Montreal, Armstrong, is relieving the accountant at Kelowna.  Miss H. F. Elder, of Calgary, is  visiting Miss Ethelwyn Jones at  Lone Pine.  Mrs. Watt and her eldest daughter Ruby, left Tuesday morning  for the coast where they have decided to reside. This step has  been taken in consequence of the  illness of her son who finds the  lower altitude suits him better.  Miss Heather Watt will follow in a  few weeks. The family haa been  resident in Kelowna for several  years, and there were many friends  on the wharf to see them off.  Ripe tomatoes are beginning to  show in some places, and if the  weather continues fane and warm  it will not be many days before  hauling starts in real earnest. Mr,  L. E. Taylor haa some especially  fine plants on his Bankhead place  and early this week made selections  of some best ripe slusters for seed  purposes. One variety in particular, "Lawes Special," developed in  the old country by Mr. Lawes himself is showing up exceedingly  well.  The drawing for the crocheted  camisole which was donated to  the Benvoulin Red Cross Society,  took place at the meeting of the  societj on Thursday last when  Norman DeHart was declared the  lucky winner with ticket number  35. We understand that Norman  denies indignantly that he is now  looking around for someone whom  it will fit. The proceeds from the  sale of tickets amounted to $26,  which sum was handed over to  the fund.  Correspondence  To the Editor of the  Kelowna Record.  Dear Sir,���May I, on behalf of  pur comrades at the front, correct  some false impressions of my fellow citizens in connection with the  Canadian Patriotic Fund ?  First, the local C.P F. committee  believes that every normal adult of  average physique ought, in these  days of dire stress, to engage in  some useful work. To this end  every recipient of a C.P.F. grant is  encouraged to work, and is expressly told that whatsoever she may  earn does not in any way affect  the amount of her grant.  Another unfortunate rumour,  which militates against that natural  sympathy which we cannot but feel  towards this fund, is the absurd  statement that the C.P.F. grant  ceases the moment soldier dies.  This is not so. The Canadian Government, with a generosity unequalled by any other government  in the world, continues the separation allowance and the assigned  pay untill such a time as the actual  pension is forthcoming, and the  C. P. Fund is equally generous.  During June $1340 were distributed . in Kelowna, to the great  benefit, not merely of individuals,  but of the whole community.  Contributions amounted to less  than $300. May I ask contributors,  who seriously desire correct information, to avail themselves of my  services. The local committee has  nothing to hide.  Thanking you for courtesy,  believe me, '  Yours truly,  J. R. BEALE,  Sec-Treas. Kelowna Branch,  Canadian Patriotic Fund.

With the big grandstand packed  to the limit, smoke was seen issuing through the flooring ; the cry  of fire was raised, and in fifteen  minutes the big structure was burned to the ground. While a panic  seemed imminent at the outset,  cool heads succeeded in controlling the situation, and although  there was naturally great excitement as the smoke rolled up thicker and thicker, the stand was  emptied quietly and quickly and  no one was injured. Before the  last of the crowd had got out the  flames were shooting through the  flooring in a dozen places.  The attendance was the largest  in the history of the association,  close to 20,000 people being on  the grounds when the fire broke  out. It was difficult to estimate the  total loss, but it will be about  $100,000.  Among the guests in the boxes  was Mr. Grant Hall, vice president  of lhe CP.R., who aided in calming; the crowd.  Canadian Women in England  The predicament of the Canadian women and children to the  number of 40,000 is one of the  curious developments of the war  that was not and could not easily  have been foreseen. They went  over to the old land to be as near  as possible to members of their  families in the army, and now there  are no ships available to bring  them back. Many of their relatives  in khaki already have been invalided to Canada. None of these  women and children are in want,  bul they are faced with the prospect of having to remain in the  old country for the duration of the  war and perhaps a year thereafter.  Owing to the overcrowded condition of the provincial Normal  School at Vancouver the education  department has decided to restrict  attendance there to students living  in the immediate vicinity of Vancouver. Students from the interior  of B.C. east of Hope must now  attend the Normal School at Victoria.  *��� When using XN  WILSON'S  FLY PADS  -   READ   DIRECTIONS  k    CAREFULLY AND  ^x^FOLLOW THEfl/  ��=��) .-exactly/  Par more effective than Sticky Fly  Catchers.

The Rutland Women's Institute  are to hold a social on Tuesday  evening, August 7th, at 7.30, at  Mrs. W. H. Fleming's house for the  benefit of the Prisoners of War  Fund. Ice cream, candy and other  refreshments will be sold and a  good programme has been arranged.  Owing to the fact that the Regatta comes on the regular Thursday meeting of the Institute this  month it has been decided to abandon it, but all members are  expected to attend the social on  Tuesday.  Miss Jean McDonald had a bad  accident with her rig last Saturday,  from which she was fortunate to  come out without more serious  injury. She was just turning away  from the store when the horse took  fright throwing Miss McDonald out  and scattering the cherries with  which the rig was loaded. Beyond  a few bruises, however, she was  not much worse, and the horse  ran safely home without further  damage.  A special patriotic service is to  be held at the Methodist church  Sunday evening at which a further  list of names added to the honor  roll will be unveiled.  On Sunday last Mr. Monford  motored up to Enderby taking Net-  ta who remained for a few days'  visit. Miss Hutchison came back  in the car and will pay an exchange visit  Mention should have been made  last week of the news that Lloyd  Macdonald,. a former Rutland boy  had been killed in France. He  was only twenty-four years of age,  and enlisted early in the war with  the I Ith C.M.R. being transferred  later to the 47th. He was the only  son of Mr. Dan Macdonald, a former owner of Rutland store. He  leaves a wife but no family.  J. M. CROFT  Bootmaker.  All kinds of Repairs  BERNARD AVENUE,  KELOWNA.

The plots are being treated  in six different ways: clean cultivation, under alfalfa, soiling crops,  clover, truck crops, and rotation  crops, and should in a few years  yield some very interesting comparisons. There is also a stone  fruit orchard under a variety of  conditions.  Experiments are being made  with a small acreage under dry  farming, and information obtained  from this should be of inestimable  value later, as there is undoubtedly  much useful land in the vallev for  which it is impossible to procure  water, but which should be worthy  of cultivation under the dry farming system which has a great vogue  in the United States.  There are as yet no cattle or  hogs on the station, though some  cattle were fed laat winter, but  when the Federal Department of  Agriculture is able to afford it this  very important branch will be  added.  What particularly struck the visitors was the wonderfully good  stand and evenness of the crops.  This, apart from good husbandry,  is probably explained by the careful manner in which the different  plots have been chosen. There  are a great variety of levels but the  plots have all been selected to give  the san e condition as to depth  quality of soil and levels for irrigating similar varieties.  Part of the good husbandry is  that Mr. Helmer insists on the importance of narrow and deep  ploughing, for too much of the  ploughing obtaining in the valley  is simply a matter of turning over  as much soil as is possible in a  given time, and it would probably  tend towards better crops if ploughing matches, which are regularly  held in eastern Canada, were instituted in this valley.  One of the most educational  features of the station is the excellent system of irrigation which has  been, laid out in a most careful and  efficient manner.* It is complete  yet simple and designed to get  fullest service out of the water  used.  It was noted that in no single  case on the whole farm was a drop  of irrigation water running off the  land on to the roads. When it is  mentioned that the whole of the  experimental station is on a hill  this will be appreciated by all who  understand irrigation. The water  is taker, from the lateral flumes by  small holes with tin gates every  two feet (the land marked out  accordingly) and in no case was  seen the wasteful system of running big ditches at a distance of  many feet apart.  The whole farm is so full of interest that days could be spent  taking notes and making comparisons of crops and conditions. If a  stopping house could be established on the lake shore at the foot of  the farm where visitors could  board, many would probably like  to spend a few days' holiday at  the lakeside and inspecting the  crops.  It is hoped that when data on  experiments is ready it will be published in a small bulletin form for  general distribution throughout the  valley. The present system is to  incorporate all reports of experimental stations in the large annual  report, and as the results obtained  at many of these stations have comparatively little interest to those in  other parts of Canada it appears  an extravagant and unwieldly way  of disseminating knowledge.  Mr. Helmer has promised to  send over a much larger exhibit  this year to the Kelowna Fall Fair,  and there is likely to be something  then to interest everyone.  Visitors are always welcome at  tlve station, but it is preferable that  they go in parties and arrange be.  forehand Should the members of  the Institute wish to visit Summer-  land later they should notify the  secretary who will arrange a party.  All who were of the party on  Saturday left feeling that it was one  of the most worth-while days of  their lives and with cheers and  musical honors tried to show to  Mr. Helmer and his assistants how  much thev had enjoyed and appreciated their visit.  Mr. H. Swerdfager, of the C.P.R  starts this week on his annual holiday, which he will spend at the  coast, joining Mrs. Swerdfager  there. Relieving agent Little is in  temporary charge here.  KING ALBERT'S FAMILY  The great-grandfather of King Al-  tisrt of Belgium In the direct mala  line was a German prince, whose eldest son, Duke Ernest ot Saxe-Ooburg-  Qotha,_waa father of Albert, Prince  Consort of Greet Britain. A daughter,  Vlotorla, married the Duke of Kent,  end was mother of Queen Victoria,  who, therefore, was a first cousin ot  her husband, Prince Albert. Leopold,  rounger brother ot Duke Ernest and  uncle of Queen Vlotorla and of her  husband, married, In 1816, Princess  Charlotte, daughter of King George  IV., heiress-presumptive to the British throne, and was created Duke ot  Kendal. She died the following year  without Issue. In 1181, Leopold was  elected sovereign of the newly-formed  Kingdom ot Belgium, and In the following jrear he married Prlnoess Louise of Orleans, daughter ot Louis  Philippe, King of the French, who  abdicated In1848 and escaped to England, where he died In 18(0. He was  the eldest son ot the Duke of Orleans  ("Philip Bgallte") who was gulllotlu-  " in 1793. Albert, King of the Belie, Is eldest son of Philip, Count of  iders, who was a younger son of  Leopold I., tbe eldest boh being  ipold II., of Inglorious memory.  NICKEL MODERNIZES WAR  Dreadnoughts and Giant Gune Impossible without It  One curious property of nickel is  that when finely divided and applied  in a certain way It has the effect of  solldlfylug vegetable oils, such as cotton-seed oil, and hence we are Indebted to this metal for an Increasing  peroentage of our lard and margarine  butter. Nickel when added to aluminum so hardens, toughens, and increases its strength that the nlokel-  klumlnum alloy Is Indispensable in  many machines. Nickel has, In faot,  mads feasible, not only the automobile; but the machine that enables a  man to mount into the sky or safely  plunge Into the ocean. Not only Is  (he airship as well as the submarine  the offspring of nickel and Its alloys,  but without It the German guns would  have battered vainly against the fortresses of Liege and Niuinir, and there  would have been a different tale to  tell In Gallipoll and on the Russian  front.  Without nickel the modern dreadnought would have been Impossible.  To get the strength now possessed  by the dreadnought without nickel,  would involve such an increase of material that the effectiveness of the  ship would be decreased in three  ways: She would have less coaling  capaolty, less net tonnage, or carrying  oapaelty, and less speed; while all the  electrical and munition-handling apparatus would be heavier and more  number-some. Moreover, the guns  would be Increased In weight and  weakened in striking power. In short,  If nlokel were withheld, the whole  machinery and equipment of modern  armament on sea and laud would go  baok with one slide almost to the  days ot Kelson and Napoleon.
