200 Farmers out to Hear Discus-

One of the largest meetings ever
held in Armstrong was that yesterday afternoon addressed by Veterinary Inspector Tolmie, Tho history and growth of the glanders was
carefully dealt with, after which
was given tbe reasons for the present "tringent measures'1 for stamping it out. The meeting had the.
effect of bringing about a -more
satisfactory feeling among local
horse owners,   More next week,
After tbe conclusion of the address by Dr. Tolmie there was held
the business session ef the annual
meeting. The report of tbe delegate to the last central farmers' institute meeting, D. Mathcson, was
received and dealt with, together
with the treasurer's report, wbioh
showed a balance of (84.46 on
hand. Several matters in connection with .the workings of the organization were given attention,
among which a resolution was
adopted denouncing the new school
act and instructing their delegite
to ttse his efforts toward securing
a repeal of the same. The annual
election of officers resulted in the
selection of Geo, Heggie, president
and delegate; W. T. Marshall, viie

The I. C. F. ball held on New
Year's night proved a grand success both socially and financially.
There were gathered there to trip
the light fantastic all the youth
and beauty of Armstrong, besides
a number from Enderby and Ver-
ncn. Great oredit is due the managing committee who exercised the
best taste and judgment in the
successfnl management of the af-
snir. The hall was prettily decor.
ated with evergreens and bunting,
this work being due to the lady
friends of the members. They ol.
bo provided the supper, which was
something out of the ordinary, and
all who participated in tho dance
highly appreciated the bounteful
repast of tempting viands placed
before them at midnight. The
music wiib excellent, being provided by Mrs. Strathearn and Mr.
Davis. Armstrong may well be
proud of having two snob uocom
plished musicians. The management of the dances won conducted
by Mr. Wyatt who acquitted himself in a creditable manner in spite
of the immense crowd.
The program consisted of twenty
sight dances, and in addition to
these there were a number of extras, it being after four o'clock
before tbe dancers left the hall, all
declaring they bad spent a moat
enjoyable night.
About two hundred were present
and participated in the dance, but
owing to lack of room we are unable to publish the names of those,

lew words about ourselves in order,
As is known to the people of this
community, nt least, the paper was
established under somewhat peculiar circumstances, nnd there has
been more or less speculation ns to
itsjsticcess and progress.
Just about a year ago now the
writer first visited Armstrong.
The people, and business men
especially, were at that time quite
dissatisfied with the manner in
which the needs of the district
were being met in the way of local
newspaper service. There existed
among the business men a desire
for the establishment of a paper
hero that should be owned and
conducted in the interests of tin-
district and one that would from
week to week publish the local
news in full and at the same time
work for the unpredjudiced development of the immediate district, in which a live local newspaper is everywhere recognized as
one of the most important institutions. The business men voluntarily assured the writer that were
such a paper established here it
would be accorded the loyal support of every business interest of
the town, while the representations
of the community at large assured
us of a circulation that easily
justified the establishment of the
Upon these assurances and
guarantees the Advance was established, though through unavoidable
delays the flrst issue did not appear for some time afterward. How-
well we have kept faith with the
community in the discharge of our
duty is best known to our readers.
but that our course has been quite
satisfactory to all is evidenced by
the cordial support accorded the
paper by, not only the business
men, but the people of the community in general. The success
of the venture was assured from
the start and the Advance . long
ago re iclied the stage where it
may with perfect safety be classi d
as one of the permanent institutions in the development and up.
buildingtif the community, Without exception, tin- venture lias
received the support and assistance
of the business men of Armstrong,
who are ever alive to any enterprise in the advancement of this,
the favored portion of the Okanagan. Not only has the paper won
the support of the business men,
bnt our subscription list has grown
almost magically during the comparatively short time of the paper's
existence until our liHt of readers
now numbers practically every
family in the community, so that
to the advertiser we are now in a
position to give value received for
their money and the paper is now
progressing on a firm business
For the future of Armstrong we
believe there is a bright hope for
still more development than even
in the past year, and in this the
Advance hopes to serve no small
part. The paper is here to stay
and to labor in every legitimate
and fair manner for the advancement of the district in which it
finds its existance. It is our ambition to in the near future make

Influenced with the suggestion
that ill.- AdVAXI E is in any danger
of not being ii permanent enterprise of the town, we.hnve only to
say that then- is no foundation
whatever for even the suggestion
of such a thing. There is a field
in Armstrong for a good, livo, wideawake local newspaper, and such
an organ the ADVANCE hopes to be,
and to remain, Iii politics, in the
future as in the past, we will take
no part, believing thai the province of a local paper is to publish
the news of the district and further
the interests of ils i-rtnstitueiils as
a whole rather than attempt to ex.
tend tlie scope of any organization,
either political, rellgous or otherwise,

we wish happiness, prosperity and

The Publisher,
We publish this week another,
letter from W. S. Burnett dealing \
with the high school proposition.1
II r. Burnett's arguments may appeal to some, and in fact his contentions do no doubt contain a
measure of truth. Yet we are of
opinion that his contention that as
satisfactory high school work can-,
not be done under the direction of
of one competent instructor as in
the case- of individual class instruction will not be borne out by the
actual results of the two methods.
The best authorities on education
of the day are inclined to favor the
system of general instruction by
I one instructor rather than that of
class instruction. Mr. Burnett
proceeds to point out the expensive i
equipment .that he claims to be indispensable in the teaching of high
! school subjects. The complete
| and expensive accessories referred
' to are no doubt of great assistance
j in high school work, yet their ac-
1 hud value may be easily overrated.
; Satisfactory progress in the high !
: school studies may be attained j
' with only the equipment that can
be simply and cheaply provided in
a one-tencher school. In support
of this we need go no farther than
our own school room, where with
an equipment that represents a
very slight expense Principal Wil-j
son has taken his eleven high
school pupils of the past year!
through the complete high school
course of study, each of whom has
successfully passed the examination in each brunch with creditable-
standings. With this done in con-;
nection with his duties as principal
of the school the results that might
be obtained by Principal Wilson, j
or other competent instructor,)
when giving his  whole  time  to;
high school work become evident.
We trust that the ratepayers of
the municipal school ilistricts will'
place the affairs of their  districts
at the approaching election in the
hands of trustees wbbarefavorable
to the union of the districts in the
establishment of a   high  school.
Educational facilities   should be
given the first consideration of an
intelligent citizenship, and the ris--
ing generation of  our own midst
should Dot be neglected  in   their
efforts to secure the bebt education
the   parents   can   furnish    them.
There are now and will be   in  in- ■
creasing numbers children  in the'
municipality who are ready for en-,
trance into high school.   In many;
—and wo venture in the majority—
cases the parents  are   financially
'unable to  bear  the  expense  of;
sending these children away from;
home to Bchool and unless a school
be established here their education
will necessarily be sadly neglected. I
Aside from the financial difficulties
to be encountered there are many
other reasons why a school near
home is to be preferred to the necessity of  sending children away
from home, even]by those financially able to do so.     The cost of  n
high school established conjointly
by the six schools of the municipal-
ity would be so small to each individual that it seems almost unrea-

the encouraging information of
their having successfully passed
their examinations in chemistry

of their matriculation examination
taken during the summer. This
completes the successful passing
of this examination by all the pupils of Principal {Wilson's high
school for the past year, all
five of whom are now eligible for
entrance to university or entitled
to second grade teachers' certificates. No more tangible evidence
than this can be procured as to the
sncceBsful work done by Principal
Wilson, even while operating a
"one horse" high school in connection with his regular duties.

can be shown by Vernon or other

reasoning on the subjeat, 1  would
like to justifj  myself I'm-  having-

strong with what I would consider
a   properly   equippod, up-to-date,!
institution   I'm-  preparing   pupils
for tho teaohlng profession, or fori
entering n university, as this proposed Bohool  is  supposed  to  l«-
qualified to do, and in making the
comparison, 1 will havo Columbian
College in view, as bolng the one
I am most familiar  with   in this
province, anil one with which you
will always be in competition.   Mr.
Wolfenden is aware that there aro|
a great ninny subjects taught in a j
properly constituted high school,;
chemistry,   beta n y.     history,;
languages, (three or four at least.)
mathematics, etc., and in a proper- i
ly equipped school, such   us the
college 1 have referred to, each of
these  subjects  is   taught   by   a
teacher who'is an   expert  in  his
particular   subject.     Now    how
would your school compare with
that?   You would simply hiive'one
porfessor for tho  whole range of
siibjects taught, who would have
to be a "Jack of all trades" and probably a master of none.   Surely
anyone  with    ordinary   common
sense can see that in that respect
at least your school would be but a
one horse affair.
Now in the matter of equipment, those in favor of the high
school should be aware that in
order that the pupils be "properly
grounded", it requiries that they
have more than a text book. It requires in the teaching of chemistry
for instance a tolerably expensive
outfit, by way of laboratory and
chemicals, as well as an expert in
the manipulation of them, to accomplish that end, and the same
thing applies to other departments
