L.O,  Women Should Learn  Fruit Packing  The local teeretary-of the Woman's  Institute, Mrs. Harold Newby ha* re-  oeived during th* paat weak th* following latter touching upon the subject of packing schools for girl* and  woman: -      |  Dear Madam.���Eaoh year in1 the  Okanagan the fruit production in the  volley is getting greater and mora  packers ore necessary to handle the  crop. Since the war broke out many  of our best packers have goro to th*  front and more ore going thi* winter,  Unless- outside labor is brought in  more packers will have to be trained  to handle next years crop. In dis-  tricta in the States and in some of our  own sections girls and young ladies  do a great deal of this work. Young  ladies and girls packed practically the  entire output in Summerland this season, assisted greatly in Penticton and  many were used in. Vernon. They  proved to be very satisfactory pack-  era, found the work agreeable add received good wages for their work.       |  Thia winter' the deportment of agriculture are offering as in other years  to conduct packing schools in various  districts. Many girls attend these  packing - schools each year, but it  struck me that it perhaps would be'  mora desirable where it could be- arranged to hold a school for girl* o��  olusively. If twelve girls in Kelowna  can i be secured to take this course in  packing th* department will furnish an  instructor and a school can be arranged for in the near future.  This work is usually taken up by the  farmers'' Institute and the courses am  arranged through tbe Farmer*' Insti-I  tut*, but I am writing this letter tb  you with the idea thBt your organize.-j  tion is more in touch with the ladies  and could co-operate with the F. rn-|  era' Institute in this work. j  BEN HOY. !

Bowser Steps in and Calls New  , Cabinet Together  At length the many conflicting rumours which have been  handed around for some months past have given place to a  definite announcement which has just come to hand. The  announcement statea that Sir Richard McBride has resigned the  leadership of the government' and will take up the office of  Agent-General of the Province in London in succession to the  Hon. Mr. -Turner. The reins of office in B.C. will thus fall into  the' handa of the Hon. W. J. Bowser, the Attorney-General  having been called upon to form a new cabinet, which, it ia  a'ated, will consist of the following:���  Hon. W. J. Bowser, as Premier and Attorney-General.  A. C. Flummerfelt, of Victoria, as Minister of Finance and  Agriculture.  Hon. W. R. Ross, aa Minister of Lands.  Hon. Tho*. Taylor, aa Provincial Secretary and Minister of  Education.

After this plans were discussed regarding the work to be done, and all the  ladies who had sewing machines or  could knit (the last named being equal  ly ae soaroe) soon reoeivod large al-  lotments of work. After a. profitable  evening hod been thuB spent, Mr*.

Potter v ill be given in th*  Board oi Trade room n��x* Sunday  ���vtaing at a o'clock.  Of those who attended the meeting  in the Board of Trade room Tuesday  evening in connection with the Canadian Patriotic Fund, even the most  thoughtless and indifferent to the great  war crisis which faces the whole empire, could not fail- to be moved by  the impressive addresses given by Mr.  Nation, provincial secretary of the  Fund, and of the Bishop of the diocese  who has accompanied Mr. Nation on a  portion of the tour whioh he is making through the interior in the interests of the Fund. Tbe keynote of tliej  whole meeting and the purpose of the  visit to all the chief centres of population in the provinoe is to make it  clear to all who stay at home in safety, whether from physical inability to  take up arms, or the pressing needs of  private business that this war is their  war, even though they may be thousands of miles awav> and concerns them  just ss muoh as it conoerns those who  hove gone forth to stand the hard-!  ships of. real fighting, or who livo  amidit the actual scenes of bloodshed  and destruction; that'the danger which  threatens the empire, threatens them  too, and calls for the putting forth of  every resource in money and energy if  it is to he averted.  Mr. Nelson is a good speaker, but  he indulged in no high-flown platitudes as he carefully and convincingly  presented his case. If this war was to  be won every one must do his part,  and those who could not fight must  pay���must givo generously ol their  substance to help support the dependents oi those who could fight.  Mayor .Tone* took the chair, 0nd the  room waa filled to overflowing with  on attentive audience.  Referring to his' own Work in connection with the Fund in B. 0��� Mr.  Nation sold he hod been asked to take  in hand the organization of a campaign throughout tho province for  the raising of the necessary funds. After taking some time in the office* at  Victoria in preparation for the tour  he had commenced operations at Sil-  vorton, in the Sl()cnn whoro there was  a population of some 650. The men  were mostly miners, but warm hearted  enthusiastic and publio spirited. Th,'--  had held a meeting and decided to organize a branoh of the Fund, appointing a canvassing committee to go  through the town and ramps. The result was a guarantee ot over $1,100  per month-nearly $14,000 a year. At  Silverton there was not'a sinjle do-  pendent upon the Patriotic Fund, but  this did not deter them from subscribing. They did not say thdy were not  going tb pay money out of town and  receive nothing in return. Kaslo had  undertaken to contribute $6,000. "and  this would possibly be increased to  six or seven thousand.  At Nelson he had asked for $10,000,  This had staggered some of the peuple  who e��id H was sot poMibk *���  they hod so many calls upon them W  other purposes. However al < :r he had  presented his case a campaign was organized and in two days a sum ot  $17,000 had been secured. It would  thus be seen how ready and willing  people were to contribute when they  understood the necessities of the case.  Trail had raised $30,000 and Eobs-  lond $18,000 in the year. Phoenix with  o population of . 1200 had promised  $1,250 per month, and had afterwards  raised the subscription list to a sum  representing a per oapita grant of $15  per year for every man, woman and  child in the place. Cranbrook had  been asked for $6,000 and had thought  it more than they could raise, but in  a one day campaign promises of $10,-  000 had been secured. This was excellent and a splendid example for  other towns to follow.  Turning to the history ol the Fund  and the woy in which it had been developed to meet the ever-increasing  needs, Mr. Notion said that when war  was first declared local organizations  had been "formed throughout Canjda  for the purpose of raising fund* to assist the families of reservists of the  army and navy who hod been called  out almost without warning to fight  for their country. Owing to the s'ld  denness of tho call in most oases no  opportunity had ben given to make  provision for the wives and children  left behind, and something had to be  done to take cure of those in need.  This plan however did not work out  very satisfactorily. In some places  then were a large number ol dyrtid-  ents and little niouns to provide for  them. In other to�� u< there had boon  few dependents und abundance of money forthcoming. This hod meant lut<  faring and went n tome places - *i a  surplus of funds in o hars.  In view of these conditions the Governor-General had cnlled together a  conference at Ottawa whioh had lasted  for several days, during which a constitution and bylaws for a Dominion-  wide Fund had born evolvid. This  had been incorporated by special act  of parliament. Its objects were to  gather subscriptions from all parts of  the Dominion into one (und und to  distribute tho money to the doprndents  and families of soldiers in an oven and  equitable manor. Powers wore given  to establish collecting branohes at  every possible point throughout the  country.  The executive was selected from the  most reprosenta'i "o 'm n in the Do-,  minion of Crtnada. 'lbs Duke of Ccn-|  naught assumed the active and, honorary duties of president. The treasurer  was the Hon. Mr. White, Federal Min-I  ister of Finance. All moneys had to  pass through his hands. Every - cent  collected from all sources had tint to  be placed to the credit of the general  Fund and from there paid out, thus  giving (brclute central control,    Tb*  hon.-secretary was Sir. Herbert Airne*,  who for fifteen months bad givtn ihe  whole of his time to the work, and to  whom was due the chief credit for the  great success whioh had attended it.  On the board were such men as Sir.  B. L. Borden, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Sir  Sam Hughes, lhe Lieutenant-Governor  and Prime Ministers of each of the  provinces. Sir Thomas Shaughnessy  and others.  After a time it, hod been found necessary to establish central branohes in  the various capital cities, in order to  avoid delay in administration of the  Fund. There was such a one in Victoria, and all moneys collected in the  provinoe were first forwarded then to  the provincial treasurer, and by him  placed to the credit of the Hon. Mr.  White. In disbursing the Fund the  various local branches forwarded requisitions to the provincial secretary.  He obtained the cheques from headquarters, and all vouchers were returned and checked. Thus tt complete  check was kept on the cose of every dependent and all the operations of the  Fund.  As an evidence of what had already  been accomplished, Mr. Nation stated  that between August l'Jth, 1014 and  September 30th, 1015 there had been  collected in round figures $5,230,000  or with bank interest of $55,000 added  #,285,000. There had been paid out  to dependents $3,172,776 and for management expenses, $14,428 leaving a  surplus in bank of about $2,100,000. It  was necessary to maintain this surplus at all times, so that if the war  were to suddenly end there would be  enough money on hand to continue  the relief until the soldiers could return and readjust themselves into civilian life. The magnitude oi the work  carried on and rate of increase in the  needs imposed by rapid enlistment  would be realized, said the speaker,  when it was stated that the disbursements had grown from $10,000 a  month to $500,000, and were still  growing,  And all this great business was carried on with a wonderful economy of  management. The total charge for  administration amounted to only five-  eights of one per cent- above the bank  interest earned. This was without  parallel in any other business. When  people Said the Fi n 1 was extravagantly managed thiy s.m.jly did not know  what they were talking about. It was  conducted economically in the extreme.  In British Columbia there hod been  collected last year $373,467, more thun  three-quarters of which came from  Vancouver and Victoria. This year  it was estimated that at least $750,-  would be needed and it was possible  that with the rapid enlistment whicu  was taking plaoe, that th* expenditure  might reach $70,000 per month. This  was probably a little more than could  be raised in the provinoe, and ihey  would have to draw to some extent  upon eastern points. This would Co  doubt be done, as B. ('., had sent a  much bigger proportion of soldiers  than eastern points.  Mr. Nation dealt very fully with the  method of administration and tho  great care exercised, so as to adjust  tho rate of payment fairly an<! equitably to the needs of every individual  Oase. The rate of allowance varied  from $10 per month, in the cftse of a  married women without children to a  maximum of $40 where there was a  family. The average |��r family for  B. C. was $19.50. Tho scale of payment was fixed so as to permit the  dependents of soldiers, with tho addition of the regular separation allowance to live in comfort and maintBin  their families without undue hardship.  Every case wae very carefully investigated before any allowance was mode.  Tho Fund was not administered as a  charity but as a right, and if after  enquiry tho case proved genuine, they  were plsoed on the payroll, and the  cheque forwarded at regular intervals,  Then wen people who suid that too  much wus paid, but they were not  just. Surely the wives and children ol  soldiers who went out to fight our  battles while we stayed at home in  comfort should live at least as comfort  ably as those of the man who ����y  worked on the street. He was told  by those who had returned from th*  front, that what most interested those  away in tho trenches was how their  families at home wen getting along  and how they wore being cared for by  those for whom thoy were fighting.  As to criticisms of the Fund, continued Mr. Nation, he found they cam*  chiefly from three classes of people  the ignorant, the cureless and the ma-  (Ooatiaatd on Pag* r'br)  Express Shipments of  Fruit Stow Big Increase  From    returns   which we have been  able   to   gather concerning tl,< shipments of fruit by express irom Kelow  na during the part season, it b   apparent that then has been an inoreose  over the previous year oi mon   than  25 per cent.    Th* exact figures showp  in comparison with 1014 are a*   follows:  1910 ...... 26,842        606,525 lbs.  1914 21,469       466,914 lbs.  Inoreose 5,390        120,311 lbs.  These figures cover a period from  May 15th to October 16th. Sine*  that time about 300 packages . have  been shipped weighing 13,500 and these  must bo added to the total.  Exact figures concerning the carload  shipment of fruit and vegetables are  not available but from a rough computation of the business done by the  various shipping concerns, the total  oars sent out from Kelowna this year  will be in the neighborhood of from  twelve to fourteen hundred cars.  Recital by D. E. Hail  On Monday evening last D. E. Hatt  of Summerland' gave a recital in the  Baptist church, consisting of selections from his own original poems.  Mr. Hatt is already a familiar figure  to Kelowna audiences from, his frequent recitals of Drummond's works,  visits which have always been boiled  with delight by all who have heard  him. The object of the present visit  was to make better known the rhymes contained in a little booklet just  published "Random Rhymes," which  contain many excellent productions,  some oi local interest. The book is  being sold for 25 cents, of which 15  cents goes to tho cost of printing and  10 cents to swell the funds of the Red  Cross. The demand for it has been  great and the last 30 copies are on  sale at Messrs. Knowles and WHlits'  stores.  Then was a good attendance at the  recital, and they thoroughly enjoyed  the evening. Mr. Hatt is * clever entertainer and his poems of nature and  folk lore were highly appreciated.  The proceeds, it might be mentioned,  from the recital and sale of the booklets have so far realized the sum of  $22, which will go to the local Red  Cross.  Comedy Prodoctloi  Early in January a musical comedy,  "In Sunny France" is to be given in  the Opera House under the direction of  tbe author-composer, Mr. Wilson MaoDonald. A caste of over 60 local  amateurs has been gathered together  and are diligently reheArsing in preparation for the event, the object of  which is to provide funds for the local  Red Cross.  Mr. MaoDonald is a Canadian poet,  compose, and artist, known throughout the length and breadth of the  Dominion and ���. whose reputation is  moreover not confined to Canada  alone, and he is taking this means  of .doing his part to help the empire  in its trouble. He ha* produced the  piece in several different cities of B. ('.  during the past few months, nnd always with great sucoess.  "In Sunny Frenoe" is on exceedingly clever and amusing work which ho*  received the most favorable notices  wherever it h���s been produced. Quite  a largo share nf the work is done by  children, and these ,,ie being carefully  selected and trained. The idea is being taken up with enthusiasm and  most of the local talent has been enlisted. A more detailed announcement  will be made later.

Hospital Finances  in Better Shape  At tho \n$l meeting 0f the Kelowna  Hospital Board held Tuesday, there  was a more optimistic feeling regarding the finances of the institution than  has been tho case for a long t imo.  during the past two or three months  there have been returns from the efforts which have been put forth during  the year, and it was pleasing to re  cefv��? the assurance that the financial  situation was gradually getting into  a more satisfactory condition. The  Ladies' .Hospital Aid and tho Country  Girls' Club have both worked strenuously for the hospital, and in addition  tho "Jumble Sale" added handsomely  io the funds. The result is that tho  outstanding debts, which amounted at  the beginning of the year to 81800  have now been reduced to about ��300.  The slogan is now "Open the new yrar  with a clean sheet," and if everyonn  will help just a little this can bo  done. Last month it might be mentioned, there were sufficient patients in  the hospital to pay all expenses, so  that all the donations went to clean  off back debts.  ���Just now with the coming of coldor  weather the hospital is in need oi  wood and it has been suggested that  u great deal of money might be saved  if people who can spare a load or two  would bring it in. There are alio  some people who i.iv owing money to  the hospital and arc possibly short  of cash, but who have wood which  i ould be applied on account. Assistance in all these ways would help to  realize tho aim to "Open the New Year  with a clean sheet."  During the course of the meeting the  Board decided to place upon record in  the minute book their sincere thanks  to all who in any w^y assisted with  the Jumble Sale. There were so many  who gave both time and money and  goods in contributing to its success  that it was found impossible to write  letters to all of them.

Careless systems of milking will bo  just as detrimental a cow's possible  performance as careless systems or exercise will be to an athlete who u  training for physical strength and ea  durance. Anyone knows when he  wants to dry off a cow, oven in the  flush, that he simply has to leave  Part of the milk in the udder at emtf  milking, skip once in a while, and in  a short time the desired result is accomplished. Tho production of milk  is decreased and kept down just the  same when the Cow is not milked completely.  In order to get the best results it is.  essential that the cows bo milked by  the same persons at each milking time.  A frequent change of milkers means  loss in milk every time a change is  made. In some dairies, where thi-re  are several milkers, the practice is  for OftCh milker to sit down to whatever cow happens to br�� next in order,  instead of milking the same cows each  time. This is a poor practice. Certain cows should be assigned to each  milker, and as few changes made as  possible. Then a cow becomes accustomed to the milker and the milker lo  the Cow. The result will be more milk  Secretion of milk is largely a nervous  process.  Excitement is another factor that  will make it impossible for a cow to  give alf the milk she is capable of  yielding. Everyone has experienced  sensations of fright, when the mouth  would be dry, and the saliva refuses  to flow. It is the same with tho secretion of milk when the cows are  frightened or excited. Sufficient time  ought to be takrn to milk the cows  completely, even if so much other work  Cannot be accomplished. A little extra  time required to work and manipulate  tho udder by hand, after tho usual  amount has been obtained, will pay  big dividends, nnd oft on makes a profit where otherwise there would have  been a loss. To do complete milking  conditions must lie favorable in the  barn, the cows treated k:ndly and regular milking hours practiced.  NO HAIHPINS WORN IN  THE CARTRIDGE FACTORIES  Owing to the dangerous nature of  tho work carried on by large numbers  of women in the munition factories,  the government have found it necessary to lay down striet rules as t<, the  attire which may be worn. The filling  of cartridges, for instance, is done in  the danger building, und every woman  engaged on this work must wear fireproof cap and overalls, which are provided by the government and kept at  the factory. As soon as the Women  cartridge fillers arrive at the works  they must take off their ordinary  boots and put on a special pair made  without nails.  If metal comes into contact with  some of the material they use an explosion would bo caused, and the restrictions oven extend to hairpins,  whieh must on no account be worn.  Each woman, on presenting herself to  the factory, is carefully examined as  to dross, and any neglect to carry out  these rules must be remedied In-fore  she is allowed to enter.���Standard.  Assisting the Settler  Tho now government of Manitoba  has a brand new scheme to stimulate  the back-to-the-land movement. Tho  Hon. Mr. Winkler, minister of agriculture, proposes to spend $750,000 ;,o  buy milch cows for needy families.  He proposes to form (l commission to  distribute to families now on farms  and families unable to continue the  battle for existence in the cities, m\  cows to every family in need. Single  men, and those not needing aid, will  be barred. ThL�� individual allotments  of bo vines will cost about $300. It is  thought that these milch cows will  enable many struggling farmers, especially in the undeveloped northern  districts, t��� colli n ie their battle until  better times; that this government  assistance will encourage them, form  a basis on which tu climb into more  contented circumstances, and prevent  hundreds from abandoning their  homesteads and going into the cities.  That looks like a common sense proposition. A coy is u pretty valuable  asset under any circumstances, and  with the revenue that it will afford  from milk and the increase in stock  the average homesteader should be  able to lay tho foundation of a substantial herd with a half dozen cows���  a foundation that will bring independence in a few years. Thirty-six head  of stock from sis cows are possibilities in a trifle over three years, and  then a man with such a herd has some  thing not to be despised in these days  of high prices.  Some of these days some government in Canada is really going to discover that, with the expenditure of a  little money in the right wuy, it has  evolved a plan whereby people will  actually be encouraged to settle on  the land.���Calgary News Telegram.  It will be impossible for a',person to  get to England on a Canadian steamship for some time as the liners are  booked to capacity. Steamship agents  in the east say that there was never  such a congestion of passenger traffic.  The newspapers describe a uniquo experiment in the state socialism which  will be tried at un unnamed city in  north England where 20,000 men will  soon be employed in munition w0rk.  To provide for tho men and prevent  extortionate prices the, government has  acquired all stores and shops in , the  district and will either allow the proprietors to soil goods under licence or  will run them under direct control o  the government. Alt' the saloons, 30  in number, have been bought by tho  government. Some of them will continue the sale of intoxicants under  close restrictions, while others will be  turned into lodging houses.  Suggestions for Ponllrymen  The Iwsi general purpose medicine ior  tho poultry farmer is good, well-prepared grit with a whole lot of exeroise  every day in the year. |  One thing that oausea a shortage it  the egg yield in cold weather is the  fowls do not have onotigh water; it  will often freeze over, and the- If-est  alrim of ice over the water will pre  vent them from drinking. Then the]  vessolB ,iiv emptied at night and often  arc not filled in time for the.hens to  drink ' when they come' off the roosts  in tho morning.  Heredity plays a" important part  in tho production of eggs. If a hen  has not been bred for egg production  she will not be one of tho bost lay.  era. Habit of producing eggs may  bo acquired und transmitted. No  amount of coddling nnd feeding 'will  make n BatiatgOtory layer out of a  hon if she in not bred for egg pro-  duction.  The farm hon will make as much  profit kopt under- like conditions, or  under conditions that nrc right, as any  of the fntiu stook. It don't pay to  allow yourself to be carried away with  the hen business and go to extremes,  but it does pay to keep whatever poultry you have in a way so as to ulako  them profitable. If you have not already a good comfortable hoUBO for  the hen��, go to work nnd build ono,  or remodel the old one. Find out jusfl  how it should be constructed to be  dry nnd havo good ventilation. Locate  on porous and well drained Boll, Or  you can build colony houses and move  thoni from place to place. C'hooBO th*  breed you particularly like and tho ono  that conforms nearest to tho market  you wrish to rater to a�� to eggs,  and meat, 0r both. 0*. sure that you  get pure bred stock, und that .'fsicrs  possesses rjood vitality, and is able to  stand the atrnin of heavy , ogg production.  TO INTRODUCE SYSTEM IX B. C.  While tho aotivitH)B of the live stook  branch of the Dominion Department of  Agriculture with regard t0 tho organization of Co-operativo Egg and Poultry Marketing Associations have boon  largely confined to date to ihe eastern  provinces 0f the Dominion, tho need  and opportunity for work of this  kind in the western provinces have Hot  been overlooked.  From the fact that co-oporntivo tr.ar-  keting of poultry products was something entirely new, it was thought advisable to thoroughly test out the  practicability of the system beforo extending 'it to a wider area. Satisfactory results having been obtained in  the cast arrangements are now being  made to extend the work to tho western provinoes.   O   Arrivals of Canadian invalids from  the hospitals of England and France  are expected to number 150 a week  for the next three months. This means  that within that period practioally  two thousand invalids will have to be  provided for by the Dominion hospitals- commission.

All kinds of Repairs  BERNARD AVENUE,  KELOWNA.  lie Woe til  %mA torts in  FarDij Community  The following interesting article on  the value of good roads t0 tne If armors is by A. C. Emmett, secretary of  the- Manitoba Motor tCldb and Winnipeg Automobile club:  The campaigns conducted an '.he vor-  ious iprpvinces of western Canada on  'behalf oi'the good .roads movement  aire generally beginning to hear 'fruit  and those pioneers who some years ago  realized that the permanent development of the country waa dependent on  the provision of good roads are 'being  repaid for the years ol earnest work  and tint* spent in a voluntary effort  to. teach the rural communities 'the  value of first class roads between the  farms and the neighboring- towns  where they carry the produce of their  {arms for transport over the railroad  to their market centres.  In -moat country districts one day a  week is set apart for a visit to the  town and before the days of better  roads, farmers were content to plow  through mud sale deep and strain  their horses in covering a trip that  with conditions improved aa far as the  grading and ditching of the roads is  oonoerned would be only a pleaBure  jaunt of half an hour or more depending on the distance that the farm is  situated from the town.  There are yet many parts 0f the  country where the good roads movement has not yet been bom, ��� and  farmers and townsmen are content to  travel only when the roads are dry  and allow their business to be dependent on the weather . being fine and  the roads fit to travel. This is the  case not only in the thinly settled  districts, but also in ���districts where  large cities and towns should warrant  every effort being made to provide  od trunk roads over which the  farmer can bring in his produce and  the residents can go out on their trips  into the country.  The marketing of the crop ever poor  roads means a loss' to the farmers that  if put into cold figures and capitalized-  every year, would, in the pours* of ten  years provide a sum large enough to  build a permanent roadway, clear  across the length and breadth of west- j  em Canada.    Actual figures  showing  tin* loss have not been compiled' for which that team would have'been o��p-  the western provinoes, but in the Unity gbfe of doing 0tt the farm.   ���  ed States where the good roads movement has reached a climax and mil  lions of dollars are being'spent to improve the highways, ' an effort was  made to show the cost of poor roads  It is a matter of common observation that where any community passes  from a condition dominated by bad  roads, to on* charact \- , good  ro��ds, land values in tb*t community  in concrete form.   Some of the results l^anoe.    Prior to any road improve-  of these investigations can lie   gained  from the following extrBets:  One county i�� the south spent 1100,-  000 in five years in building ^remanent roads, and within two years alter  the improvements were , commenced  the annual tonnage over the road had  increased 45 por cent., and the yearly  profit due. to the improved roads was  $41,000 or more than 41 per cent., ol  the entire cost of the, road improve  ments.  Upon one road alone, a distance of -sale prior to   the good roads     move-  12 miles, the expenditure tor road -improvement was $28,000 and the saving1  in the coat of hauling was estimated  to he fully-$14,000 per year, or 60 per:  cent., of the entire cost.  It 'is also a well established fact that  market prices vBry at different seasons  of 'the year and with the unreliable  roads that we have in practically most  oi tho district the farmer cannot take  advantage of the market if the roads  h*ve suffered from, a rainstorm on the  .previous day. This means dollars aod  cents to the . progressive farmer and  is quite sufficient in a rainy season to  make the operations 0n the farm unprofitable whereas if a good road existed the state of -the weather would  mot have such an injurious effect or  the transportation department.  Those responsible for the running ol  a railway fully realize that they must  keep their steel roads in auoh shape  that traffic movement is possible at  any time and if the farmer would  realize that the railways are dependent on the produce of'the farm to give  them the necessary loads to make the  railway a paying concern they would  begin to realize that something might  be d0ne to bring about a saving in'  freight rates if they would co-operate  in an effort to bring their freight to  the rail' at all times and not only  when the present mud road was in  good enough condition 'to carry half  a load in place of the full load    that.  ments in one provino* in particular  the average price of land was from  S6 to $16 per aore. After road improvements bad been completed the  value 0f the land had increased to an  average of $14 to 125 per aore. .n  instance in point of tire effect of rjoi'i.i  roads may be cited in the case of a  farmer who fought the good roads  movement which some of his more  progressive neighbors were anxious to  put through.   His farm was offend for  ment for $1,800, but so much did the  good road* improve the look of his  farm and so easy   ol *oos** to    the  town did it make it that he has sine*  refused an offer of $8,000 for tho farm  that he would have taken $1,600 for,  Another feature of the good roads  movement that should receive the  greatest attention from the municipal  'authorities is the after maintenance of  a road alter it has once been built.  In many instances it seem* to be the  ease that the councillors consider their  responsibility ends as far as the good  'road is concerned, with the actual  construction, whereas the most important part of the whole business  should be the after maintenance.  Thousands of dollars have been spent  on roads in tho three western provinces owing to the fact that this after maintenance waa not provided for  and until the municipalities are prepared to incorporate this part of the  work in their program for good roads  then they will do better to leave the  roads alone until they are prepared to  do so.  The state ol Pennsylvania has realized the urgency of this and ha* made  arrangements to put all the good  roads under a patrol system. The  plan is to embrace forty-six counties,  which will be in the care of 196 men,  who will assume the responsibility of  keeping the highways in repair. Their  wages will run from 15 t0 90 cents an  should be carried. Every extra team' bom, according to the rate of wages  that the farmer is compelled to take  off work on the farm for the purpose  of hauling his produce to town over a  poor road, means n heavy loss if totalled up at the eird of the year as  "there is not only the expense of the  team going to town but the lost labor  paid in the districti in which they  ���work. Accord'n: to the old system it  costa $500,000 annually to do what  the road officials expect to do for  $120,000 or $65 per mile under the new  patrol system.  Each man will have a certain   num  ber of miles hi a given district to  take care of. If the work ia satisfac-  ceive the oredit and if the work is not  torily done thin the one man will re-  well done then there will be but the  one man to get after for any poor  work. The necessary tools and equipment will be furnished each man of the  road patrol by the counties, employ'  ing them and they will be expected to  make daily renoi" * ��� ''-e county superintendent who will moke out their  time sheets and pay rolls for the number of hours they have worked.  Tinder this system, the minute a  ���mall hole appears in the road surface  it will be fixed by the patrol instead  ol being' left in the old way until the  road got into such condition as to  make it "necessary to practically rebuild it ovor the stretch.  The Manitoba Good Roads Association has for the last live or six ye*rs  been doing splendid work lor the good  roads cause by promoting an annual  split log drag competition, giving  prizes lor the best kept section and  in every other way possible boosting  the promotion ol good dirt roads. This  year's competition is the biggest that  has been conducted under the auspices  ol the association and comprises over  ninety miles ol roBd in the eastern section of the province, In addition to  this subsidiary branches of the association have been formed at Emerson  and Dauphin and a split log drag  competition inaugurated in eaoh distriot with the Manitoba Good Roads  Association's officers acting as the  judges.  It is the intention ta spread this  good roads movement all over Manitoba as quickly as possible by the  formation of the good roads district  and the provincial government will be  asked to support the movement by the  appointment of some representative  who will travel through the province  for the purpose of organizing the different municipalities into good roads  districts and instructing them as to  the use of the split log drag.

That a spurious Christianity has not accomplished what the real thing oan, aad doe*  accomplish, is self evident, but why  take up a newspaper column to state  this threadbare truth? "Every lane  man and woman admits this truth."  Then again Mr. Potter quotes the  words ol * man, a Mr. Gillies uttered  two year* ago in which he fays  "Higher criticism has given us a new  and different Bible." Thank goojaess  say I. By the way, does this Dr. (,'il-  Kes speak as "one having authority"  or merely "as one of the scribes?"  The (act that "civilization is net  Christianity" is emphasized wherever  "sane men and women" conircgut*.  Consideration of the letter suggests the  question, "What is Christianity?"  Might I ask Mr. Potter whit hit conception is?. I ask this not in iuy  captious spirit but Rosa Bartle 'like  because "I really wsnt to know you  know" (Oh shocking!

BIG GUNS SOON STOP BOMBS  An officer of a Highland Territorial  battalion at the front, writing on the  effect of big gun fire says:  One hears a tremendous crash, and  then a cloud of white smoke and  chalk rises in our trenches, caused by  the explosion of a German trench-  mortar bomb, or an aerial torpedo.  Five or six of these come over, and  then far behind us wo hear a comparatively low crack and a rumbling  sound resembling a railway train in  the distance.  This sound passes overhead, and  Boon we see a tremendous blaok ftnd  white oloud rising among the German  trenches. The sound of the explosion  comes a few seconds later. When  others arrive, all near the same place,  the German trench mortar stops immediately, and we realize the moral  and real effect of the high explosive  shell* of large calibre.  An order-in-counoU w>a�� passed by th*  cabinet last week setting the date for  the opening of Parliament for Wednesday, January 12th.  Records kept at Nelson, B. 0., show  that th��t distriot had a greater snowfall last month than during th* same  period within the lot eleven years,  or Binoe the' records have be*n kept.  The importance of the work of the  provincial fruit inspectors in keeping  the province free of pests is realized  when it is known that forty-one oar-  load* of fruit have been condemned  for infection in Yakima County, Washington, during the past season.  ... Tho provincial department of agriculture announces the deoisipn of the  government to hold a convention of  farmers' institutes in Viotorj* during  the coming year. Tho convention is  as a rule, held annually, but it w*s  abandoned this year owing to the very  unsettled and uncertain condition of  affair* as a result ol the war.  Th* manager oi a large whaling star  tion at Akutan, AUsluu who has jest  returned to Seattle from his  work, reports that his company took  307 whales, yitlding 16,400 ton* of  fresh meat excellent in flavor and  highly nutritious. An effort ia being  mad* to plaoe whale meat on tho market as a table food, whaler* insisting  that this flesh is equal to any eaten  by man, but not used ashore because  of lack of intelligence. In the old  whaling methods all the meat was  thrown away. In tho present methods  it ia used in the manufacture of fertiliser.  A proposal was set on loot last week  in Croston, B.C., that each and all  of. the fruit growing centres in the  Kootenay and Boundary districts  should form themselves into local organizations,, each having looal autonomy, for the handling and sale of the  fruit and produce raised in suoh districts. It was also suggested that  the central, or head office ot the ori  ganizatlon, .'should be at Calgary. It  t* probable that delegates from the  combined district* will be present at  the'next convention of the B.C. Grower* In Victoria, to obtain assistance in  putting the organization Into rui  ��Js*tjsV .  German Editor in East  Replies to Critics  What one German in Canada thinks  of the murderous methods of the German military authorities is detailed in  the following statement by R. B,  Christiansen, editor of the German  Post of Pembroke:  "To allay all rumors'and reports re-  garding certain statements I have  made in reference to the sinking of the  I.usitania and tho execution of Miss  Edith Cavell, I make this declaration  of my true and uninfluenced opinion.  I was horrified and dumbfounded, upon , reading of ths sinking of the Lusi-  tnnia, to think that Germany, through  her military element, had commenced  a mode of warfare that must .naturally be branded as a crime against humanity. I have never at any time  tried to justify or condone this *��*."  Speaking of Mis Cavell's execution,  the editorial says:  "I realise with every Britisher the  horror of the deed, and denounce the  harshness of Herman military rule  that would put lo death a woman that  had nursed German and British  wounded alike,' oven though she were  guilty of indiscretion of which she  may not havo realized at the time."  Changing the Face of the Alps  The European war, which has already laid in ruins some of the most unique Works of architecture and art, is  now changing tho face of the Alps  mountains.  The soenery of the Alps all along  the Italian frontier is being changed  every hour by the pneumatic drills  and the howitzers and dynamite of  the Austrian*.  Swiss guides who have returned-from  the Dolomites and Curaic Alps say  the mountains are being honeycombed  with nines, especially on the Tyrolese  and Camic frontiers.  All1 the .parapets on the steep road  where in former summers tourists  passed in motor oars, have been demolished by Austrian sappers in order to allow artillery full play in the  event of an Italian attack. For the  same reason beautiful pine and fir  forests have been cut down, leaving  the Alpine routes perfectly bare.  Large areas in the Alps have been  mined by the Austrian*, who by pressing a button, can hurl an avalanche of  rocks and boulders against the advancing Italians.  THE SIKH'S DEADLY DISCUS  The Sikhs fighting in the war Can  certainly claim to possess tbe moat  unique form of weapon ,of any-military unit in the campaign.  This is a hand-thrown circular missile,, composed of metal similar in  shape tp the discus with which we  have been made familiar in Roman  history. Its edge is sharpened like a  razor, and the weapon, when thrown  with a peculiar oiroular motion, has  extraordinary penetrating power. It  cuts like a knife through paper when  it strikes any object in ita path.'  At a distance of 200 yards tho dis  cus is capable of cutting its way  through a piece of hard wood two  inches thick. It is the peculiar twist  given to the weapon ��h:n it is thrown  which causes the cutting edge to bury  itself so remorselessly in anything  that it meets. It is doubtful whether  any but the Sikhs could effectively use  this unique weapon.  They made deadly use of the discus  of death at the battle of Dixmude,  when 20,000 Germans are said to  have been slaughtered in a brilliant  Indian charge.  The Copenhagen correspondent of the  Daily Mail says: "The copper roof* oi  several churches and schools' in Schles-  wig, Germany, have .been reduced to  pure copper for military purposes.  The remaining available men in Sch-  leswig havo been enrolled in tho army  in the past few days."  The record of the British hospitals  in this war is as follow*) The wounded returned practically at pnee to (he  front, 54.6 per oent; sent away for  convalescence, 24.6 per cent; under  mon or less prolonged treatment in  hospital, 17.4 per oent.; dismissed from  tho army as incapable for mvther service, 1.46 per cent.: dead, 3.48 per  oent.  ' A 20-year old Englishman named  George Marousson, who is interned at  Ruhleben, was sentenced to three  months in prison for insulting '.nipei-  or William. Marcussen, in a conversation with another prisoner, Applied iin  epithet to the Emperor whioh was  overhears by a sentry, who reported  the f*ot to tho authorities, As Marcussen had been in jail (or live months  preliminary to his trial, the sentence  of three months is thus considered to  have been served.

As  for the malioious ons> in nine cases  out of ten their opposition was duu  to the fact that thjy did not want to  subscribe, and sought to justify themselves by finding fault.  One of the charges made was that  some families were better oil now than  they were before the. War, This Nwas  perhaps so in dudes wheru the hus  band had been u drunkard or un idler  but ihat was no reuspn why the fam  iiy of a man who had gone out to  fight should suffer because ho had per'  hups failed to do his duly as a man  belore.  As to charges of graft, the best an  swer.-; to that was that somo of the  biggest banks, railway companies and  others were giving liugo sums to the  Fund and they would scarcely do this  unless assured that it was honustl;  managed.  Some people maintained that th  government should take the ii.attoi' up  so that all the people would share thi  cost. There were vital objections to  this however. No government could  discriminate and weigh each Individ  ual case as they did, but would liavo  to make a uniform allowance all round  and it wus safe to say that it Would  cost the countrv about twice as much.  Then the hands of the government  were full with the actual conduct ol  the war and it became tho duty of  everyone left at homo to assist. This  rt'ns a war of tho people and everyone  was equally responsible. The soldiers  who went to the front were t,h* ones  who made the real sacrifice, out tliosu  who could not go had just as much  responsibility und must nil assist in  carrying the war through to a sufid:^-  ful issue.

It 125  men could pay out so much money  every year to keep cars, what could  S00 men, by a little sacrifice, contribute t0 tho fund? He expected at  least $10,000 a year from Kelowna.  "Now don't say this is impossible,"  he said, in answer to the laughter of  the audience, "I know better."

It was the intention, he said to organize an energetic campaign, aud  he urged that -when " the collectors  dame they would be received kindly.  "They will really be cuniing on your  own business, und I hope you will  give freely and not fear to make soitio  sacrifices for I ho causo."  The speakor concluded with an i"i-  prcssivo appeal to remember those less  fortunate onen who were suffering tor  rible agonies in the grout struggle for  freedom and right, in tho countries devastated by the enemy, and above ail  to remember the soldiers fighting anJ  dying in tho trenches for us in do-  fence of the  Empire,  Following a patriotic song by Mr.  (J.

It was because of this fact  that any difficulty at all was experienced in raising money for the Patriotic Fund and all th.- other movements whieh have for their object the  speedy and successful', end ng of the  war.  Tho supreme end and aim ��f Germany for the past 111 years had been  to strike a blow at the British Empire  and to bring all our outlying empire  under tho control of Germany. This  fact could be read in all their literature for years past. Germany today  was fighting for world-wide emotre  Germany's sole object was to crush  Great Britain, und we were therefore  fighting for ' our very national life  and existence. Should Germany be  successful the fate of Canada was decided, and the Kaiser no doubt had  plans as to its disposal. We had been  told that this was merely a dream  and that we were Bate so long as wo  had the United States to the south  of us, which would stand or fall by  the Munroc Diotrlne. He adviflad his  hearer.-' not to place too much faith  in the Munroe Doctrine which we  might find a very broken red to  lean upon. In tho face of ft victorious Germany and u van pushed Great  Britain what could tho I'nited States  do? Therefore wo were culled upon  to fight for o'ir nati<nd life and existence, if we would avoid the fate o'  Belgium nnd of Serbia. Our duty wfts  to put forth every effort io destroy  tho monster.  It was only when we began to realize that every single man, woman and  child wfts at war with Germany that  wo could hope to succeed. Germany  herself had realized this and every single one in the country was doing his  or her best to help. Take tho potato  crop of Germany this year���where did  they get it?

But  thero were many not physically capable or not of afc*. and then there were  tho women nnd children, what ot  them? Because we were not at the  front were we going to say this war  was no concern of oiira? This war  was no more tho war of the men in  khaki than of us at home. Our duty  was to do all that our country called  us to do, and to do it with all our  might.  Here was where the t'atriotio Fund  caino in. If we could not go lo the  front and fight we could at Itust help  to care for the families of those who  (IM go. Wo could s.o that the mm  who had Bacrifioed everything, who  had given up work and home and  friends to fight in our behalf wore r<)-  lioved from all anxiety as to the welfare of those Ihey left behind.

He ventured to say that throughout  lhe whole o* ''(inula, there ,v,is very  litUe real sacrifice.  . If we wero lo win, too, wo must bo  willing to submit to discipline without which all sacrifice was vain and  futilo. Wb might not always agree  with the government but at a umo  of crisis that had nothing to do with  it. So long as the war was on we  must be willing to act under authority, and to bo ready to carry vout orders. If wo wero ready to do this, it  might lie a long pull, but we could  look forward confidently to r.ho day  when this monstrous tyranny would  be overthrown und right triumph over  might.
