Our military effort for the last  two years iias been considerably  greater than any other of the Allies,  including France. In 1917 almost  the entire fighting in France was  done by our troops.

In  addition we captured over 100,000  Turks.  f>. Supply has fallen more and  more on Great Britain.

A. BATES,:Editor aud Proprietor  THURSDAY, "DECEMBER:26th, 191o  We wish our readers a brightand happy, but.  iabove all a prosperous New Year and may it  be the brightest and most prosperous year of  any that our readers have ever enjoyed^ After the war we were led to suppose that there  might be some hard times but the present does  not seem to indicate that���������at least not for  British' Columbia, which is said to be on the  verge of a great and more constructive period  than ever before. lt������is up to us to make it  the very best we can.  There is one thing, as a paper, that we  might call attention to to assist in this- new.  era of affairs, and that is the liberal use of  the newspaper columns for extending your  business. ��������� The day for advertising is here and .  those who would prosper in business should ,  take advantage of this up-to-date method of  making-known their wares. It was the press  . that made the Victory Loan of 1918 the grand  success that it-was, in -spite,of a swapping of  horses in the middle of the stream. Mission (  City is close to the large coast cities where  bargains are advertised every day. People  -by reading the daily papers know they can  get whai they want in the big city, but by  looking at a store building or in a country  store window how are they to know in  the store for sale. Advertise your business in  as many ways as you think advisable but be  sure to devote a portion .of your, money to the  safe fand sure way���������newspaper advertising.  But to all this paper wish a bright, happy  and prosperous 1919.  Over in Matsqui there is a municipal election cry that will make things interesting for  those running for cfiice in that municipality,  ar<i that is the question of light and power lor  the farmers. Years and years ago many of  the farm houses were wired for the prospect-'  ive cheap power that was to come, but i^fras  never come. Now the people - want to' iVriow  whether it is the council or the power company that is at fault.. Or whether both are at  fault. Power is taken right through the municipality to a foreign* country but. does-, not  spread much of its rays-on the path it takes;  It is something the farmers of Matsqui prairie are entitled to.    So are some in- Mission.  The municipal elections of Mission municip-'  ality and Mission school district will again be  run on the Proportional Representation plan.  Last year it created many surprises for the  candidates and may do the same thing this '  year.    But if it means that all the people have"  a say���������the minority as well as the majority  it ought to be all right.    Maybe Mission people  may get to like it yet.  The Federal government appear to be getting on the right path when they give six  tiiei's on distcharge. Even a little longer would  months' instead of three months' pay to soldiers on distcharge. Even a little longer would  would not hurt. The new scheme will mean  the sum of $90,000,000 instead of the former  sum of $45,000,000,' if given uniformly, but  no amount could be too much���������up to even a  payment of 3(55 days' post discharge.  In our younger clays we were told that "example was better than precept".' The- other  day we read on the front page of an up-country paper, "A year's subscription to the   i'or nothing." Now when the president gets  on that kind of a scheme how are the rest of  us to keep up the standard of the high  price of paper? ,  It turns out now that the present government changed the Prohibition Act as'approved  by the former legislature and ��������� the people,  which provided for its-administration by the  superintendent of provincial police. The  change placed it in the hands of a commissioner and Mr. Fitidlay was the appointee. It  would have been better in the hands of the  superintendent of police, where there is usually a certain amount of efficiency. Now U  is the" request .'thai r.he porhibirion people are  asking that a commission, of independent men  be appointed.    Where are they?  We are afraid all that is contemplated to  aid the returned soldier to settle on the land  will prove inadequate, unless a more statesmanlike vision of "what the requirements are  is shown. There are two aspects of this land  settlement problem that appear to have been  lost sight of by both the Federal and Provincial authorities. The first is the deterrent  caused by the handicap of debt under which  returned soldiers settling on the land will la-  8  bor. The second is that'iio provision has been  made for settling men on land in the imined-.,  iate vicinity of cities'and established-ccmmuii4  ities. No land policy in ��������� --British!.-Columbia  seems destined with tlie success -that  is desired, owing-to the topography of the pro-,  vince, unless it contemplates bringing finder  j cultivation land that is contiguous to markets.  It is almost futile to talk of tlie reurned men  availing themselves of the opportunities that,  exist in territory so far away from the cenres.  of population as, for instanc'e.^^'T^lce River  country.���������Colonist.  It is not often, that a goverv.-.nient has to  complain that the' press of docs  not give it support, but such is the case of the  Oliver government at Victoria and has been  ��������� remarked upon by the Premier on more than  one occasion and Attorney-General Farris is  anxious after more publicity top.. With the  double taxation of the past two years and the  ��������� promised deficit this year of $2-,000,000 the  press of the province cannot honestly support  the present government if it would also meet  the approval of the readers and subscribers of  the provincial papers. , That the press does  not boost the Oliver government should be taken as the handwriting on the wall. Here is  what an exchange has to say:  "Attorney-General Farris says that the present government in British Columbia is the best  government that the province has ever had,  and modestly adds that the members of the  government have been so busy making good  government that they have not had time to  advertise their work through the newspapers,  or on the platform.    We can frankly say that  for  twenty-one years we have "never  heard  ministers talk so much about their own ability,,,  .about what they are doing for the people, and  "at the'same time making so many charges a-  gainst previous governments as the present  :government.;    The ministers have gone over  ���������the province alone and    in groups,    singing  ���������their own praises on the platforms, at agricultural fairs, mining meetings, board of trade  gatherings, good roads conventions, meetings-  of municipalities and even in church, conventions as patriotic associations.    Mr. Hart, has  plumed himself as the best finance minister  and has travelled   from Dan to-. ..Bersheba to ���������  prove it.    Mr. Sloan has told the mining communities that no man in' his office has laid  ���������out such elaborate plans to assist the miners  and prospectors, as well as the mine owners,  and yet nothing.has been done. : CMr.rFarris  has told of the "wonderful work-of the government at political-;gatheririgs;:^ll--over the *'  province,  never failing to say, a' good, word  for the head of the law department.    T. Duff-  erin Pattulo, better known two years ago as =  "Pat" in Prince Rupert, carries a photograph  of himself and his land, policy wherever he,  goes and throws them on the screen so that'  the people may know.   Dr. McLean'is included  to be a little more modest, but partisanship  basis his course in the transaction bf business, '.  while Dr. King, once one of the leading.surgeons in the western province, is persistently ,  called a splendid executive, by members of the  government,- but who is recognized by all as  ���������one who spoiled a mighty fine surgeon to dabble in politics.    As to Premier Oliver, he has  gone over the province holding Board of Trade  meetings in many towns in the afternoon and  "Whoop-her-up" political meetings- in the. evenings when he condemned everything Conservative, praised   everything   Liberal,."' and  talked of the honesty of his party and -the  great reforms that they had. accomplished" in *:  the brief time, that they: had - been in office.  ������������������Not enough publicity!      The members of tlie  present government can give any advertising  agency in Canada cards and spades and then  beat them to a finish.    And what is more they  absolutely ignore the Dominion statutes regarding any misrepresentations in advertising  of any character.    But the people know. And  they are learning more about this'delectable  aggregation every day.    Even those who were  staunch Liberals two years ago and did all in  their power to elect them are getting wise. In  fact any opposition would win in another election as the electors are in a hurry for a  change in the government, ho: matter what it  mey be.    They are willing to take a chance.  That is absolutely the situation at the present  time and the wise ones at Victoria are not taking any chances on an election just now, and  yet they are anxious to pull one off before all  the soldiers come back, as they are convinced  that they have made mistakes enough in their  treatment of the returned men to condemn  them for all ime.    Mr. Farris may well have  fear about the publicity given his*party. They  have had plenty of it, but it is the kind the  people are not taking kindly to.       In other  words, Oliver & Co., Limited, politicians and  office holders, Victoria, B. C, will be in the  hands of a leceiver whenever they attempt to'  do business with the electorate of this province again, says the Kaniloops Standard-Sentinel, and Editor Simpson could   have   said  a whole lot more and then not said too much.

BUSINESSMAN  (Okanagan Commoner)  'We were told the other-day on  approaching a merchant with the  Idea of getting him .to liven up a bit  with some Christmas advertising that  he did not think, it would pay to advertise just now: that "the way to be'  "safe" in business was to' cut down  expenses and wait. We did not reply  to ��������� that businessman as' we should  liked to have replied. There are  some businessmen that will never.get  over the idea that ".it does not pay  to advertise." This is where the man  who believes in advertising has the  advantage���������and it is an advantage  an opportunity that they seldom fail  to take advantage of.  There is a live-wire wholesale firm  In Winnipeg that has sa'nt a circular  letter around to customers which is  worth repeating. Here it is: "Well,  at last wo ���������have got Xho war over, arid  after having one celebration that was  not called for, we have finally got  the official news. However, the ex-,  tra celebration didn't do any of us  anyharm. Undoubtedly, you are Just  as pleased as we are to get'the long  war over and done with.. It has been  a long, hard, uphill fight, but the Allies have triumphed, and we can be  justly proud of Canada's share in the  victory. All honor and praise to the  boys who made it possible and; who  will have a vacant chair..  "You have likely: heard a good  deal of 'blue ruin' talk about what  would happen to business when the  war is over. * We have, and naturally, you have heard your share. Our  own opinion is that business will be  just what we make it ourselves. If  we all go.around wftb. long faces and I  'failure'- thoughts, business certainly  "will be bad,- but if we put- aside all  such id.eas and notions, and all pull  together for a bigger .and brighter  business future; all will be well, and  the adjustment'period will not be noticed. We would like to' have this  letter give you one thought to carry  with you, to use in your daily affairs.  It is this'���������"Business will' be just  what we make it���������LET'S MAKE IT  GOOD!"  WAR  MEMORIALS  The best war- memorial is that  which' we' erect ��������� in our hearts. If  this be realized the memory of those  who have laid down'their lives-will  be. ever present; ample provisionwill  be made for their dependents; .and  homes, a good living, and an honored career will be assured for all who  have been spared to return from the  war.  Humanity is frail and needs a constant reminder. Therefore any  scheme which will result in a visible  token of memorial should command  our immediate attention and interest.  The simple ceremony of planting  trees and thereby beautifying . our-  schools and public places should be  delayed no longer. .  It might well be the forerunner of  a more permanent and visible sign of  our appreciation.

The American Sheep Brooder recently conducted a contest for, tho  best reasons for keeping sheep on tho  farm. Tlio following by a farmer of  Iowa,   won  first pride  .Why tlie average American farmor  should keep at least some sheep on  his promises:  1. Tlie initial investment in foundation stock is small.  2. Expensive buildings are not necessary. ,  3. Expensive machinery is not- required.  4. Less productive land can be utilized.  5. Sheep will eat and relish almost  every class of weeds.  6. By eating "Ragwort" tlio BOiirce  of "Pictou" cattle di-aoaso is elimiu-  nlod.  7. By cleaning-out the fenco rows  sheep destroy tho winter protection  of many Injurious inHects.  8. Due to the fineness of tho manli-  cation of their food, very few weed  seeds are found in sheep droppings.  9. Sheep are of great value in the  clearing of brush land.  10. Sheep, are dual purpose animals.  11. Crop' yields are increased by  the.constant and uniform distribution of rich manure.  12. The excreta- of "sheep is'rich in  nitrogen and potassium.

'.  Before the stupendous amount  of $676,000,000 worth "of bonds  could be sold to our Canadian  people in three, weeks a most  thorough and exhaustive campaign of education was necessary, * and this - campaign-- -, was-  carried advertising  iii the public' press. The'power  of the-printed word never-had  a more convincing demonstration. -  By means of the printed word,'  through the medium of advertisements in the press of our  country; the Canadian people,  were made to know what-bonds���������  are, the nature pf their" security  their "attractiveness' as-' an" investment, and why the Government had to-sell bonds.  Every point and feature of  Victory . Bonds was illustrated  and described before and during the   campaign���������in   adver  tisements,  overlooked.  No argument. was  No selling point  was neglected.  The.result is that Canadians today are a nation of-bondholders.-  They know what> a convenient.  safe and profitable.form of investment bonds are/    Instead  of brie hian in   two   hundred  owning bonds; now one Canad-.  ian iii eight���������men,women' and .  children���������owns a Government  Security. - ,..-....-  This complete transformation  in the national mind and-habits-*  was brought about by advertising in the press of the nation".

Vorchere suddenly  passed away on Wednesday (Christmas) evening about nine o'clock.  He liad improved so much that he  was able to be around the house,  ���������chatting, smoking his pipe and looking forward to tlie ��������� day when he  should be able to attend to his business again, but he suddenly developed pleurisy and being in a weak condition, after his long illness of typhoid, ho was unable to ward off the  disease and lasted only a few hours  after contracting it.  The lace Mr. A. M. Verchoro was  one of the pioneers of Mission City,  and always a live' wire, willing* r.o  Lake-part in anything that tended to  the public welfare. He had bee?i  secretary of tlie Board of Trade for  a number of years; had ably filled  the position of municipal clerk; aud  latterly had been president of the  Mission Branch of tlie Canadian Patriotic Fund, taking much pride-sin  securing' for the wives of the sel-  diers and their dependents the regular monthly cheque, lie took as  g.*e:u interest ici.this work and  cons-'icnliously devoted much time to  it, faithfully performing tlie self-  imposed duties as enthusiastically as  if a large salary had been attached.  The deceased was born in India  about fifty-one years ago, and came  to Canada, at the age of eighteen,  from England, settling in Ontario  for a few years, finally coming west,  and eventually locating in Mission  City in the fall of JSIKJ.
