For two years a war has been in pro-  gross, thai, has touched the hearts and Che homes of nearly every family in the whole of the, British Empire. Many of our  bravest sons-have fallen at the front defending the fight that  Britain, France, Russia and Italy have taken up on the part of  little Belgium.-.Many a mother mourns a'departed husband,  son or it.may be a father (has fallen, all for the cause of freedom of the little nations, who although smaU have their rights,  Remember how we thought, not so very long ago that it  would be impossible, to have any more'large wars���������that we  were getting so civilized that we would fight no more; little we  knew the heart .of the Kaiser and his peop'le, the Huns. How  they had been preparing for'over forty years quietly, it is. true,  but nevertheless preparing, with a definite purpose in view. The;  opportunity to come at the first possible excuse. The excuse  came and today the Kaiser and his Hun army are the. most de-  . spised of the human ..race.  Whi.-e celebrating the second anniversary of thee, war and  we are enjoying that quaint old custom of "toasting" or "drinking to" our friends���������handed down to us from the "bluff,'honest,  merry days of Britain's rollicking youth of our ancestors. And  it is not only friends we can "drink to." What about a toast  for the Kaiser and his murderous myrmidons? Do you not think  it would be quite in order, that we invite his Satanic Majesty  to paste it up in his Potsdam scrap-book, side by side aJll previous messages "with which it should be read" as the lawyers  say. Here we are then. Let us wish the Kaiser health enough to suffer the full measure of just punishment for his most  atrocious misdeeds. Wish him long life enough to feel the  whips of the worst of remorse and the scorpions of. self-des-  pisal. Wish him leisure enough' to listen to the burning taunts  of conscience. Wish, him imagination enough to cal'l up the  shades of his victims in the watches of the darkest night; and  to summon to his restless couch the accusing spirit qf. Nurse  Cavell, and the thousands of other wronged women and mothers  Wish him friends enough to tell him the bitterest truth; and  then a short respite���������a brief opportunity for repentance���������ere  he seeks at the Bar of God the mercy he shall never find at the  hands of Men. With the name of Wiliam of Hohenzollern in  your toast couple the name of the Devi1!. Drink, sitting, to their  joint confusion. And may the Kaiser hear the clinking of the  glasses above the roaring of the guns;���������our guns.  ,  Perhaps someone will think of a fitting toast for the Crown  Prince.  We could hardly grow enthusiast  ic over tho market here or Edmonton of the past week, lddmonton had  two cars of berries besides express  stuff and prices ruled very low. Calgary was heavy with what The 0. U.  G, Man had over Sunday in cold  storage and the car of American berries P. & S. got in, they could not  have got over express and duty out  of if. But no tears need bo shed  over their loss, as there were plenty of Canadian berries without bringing these in. Rasps sold well; but  we could not maintain a three dollar  price; as people bought two for twenty-five cent strawberries in prefer-  ���������encc to fifteen, cent ras,ps, $2.r>0  could easily have been held all week  had The A'cme Company not made.a.  $2.2,5 price Friday, and took orders  for straight $2 for Saturday. The  Acme did not have great c-uantity on  Friday and very- few on ;Saturday  but it causc-.T-o.ui' customers to do a  'lot of kicking, and complaining that  we werc.holding them up. We have  always considered it our duty to get  every cent the-" market would pay for  lii-nor slr'ppers and give best service  we were capable of and it hurt ua to  drop.to $2.2") when the market could  eas-iily have been held to $2.r/0. The  0. U. G. Man had a car of C res tons  come in Thursday, a very considerable portion is 'in cold storage for  Monday sale, so prices will likely be  low on ��������� strawberries the foro  part of tho week. The demand is about, over for them. People,  want rasps now. Tho demand for  black currants is very light and those  who can will do better to send to a  jam factory Red currants have sold  but only at a low price.  VERNON FRUIT CO.,  LTD.

Meeting Held First Monday of Each Month  Write the secretary regarding manufacturing sites  with unexcelled shipping facilities and cheap power  or information regarding the farm and fruit lands of  U the district, and industries already established,6V     Jj\  &&=���������  Today the prudent farmer hardly dreams of planting seed  grain without testing it. He realizes there is on deposit in the  Bank of Nature a huge sum of money, much of which may be  his if elementary rules are followed in seeding and cultivating.  The average dairyman with twenty cows may reeasonably  expect as his share of nature's hoard a yearly income of two  thousand dollars if the resultant crops are marketed through  suitable cows. But can the unselected, untested cow be expected to take a prominent part in that annual distribution  of nature's wealth' She may be fed and cared for to the best  of her owner's ability, but there seems to be a loose end if he  does not turn round and test her, determne her-ability to turn  the vast deposits in nature's bank into round nine thousand  pounds of milk and leave a clear profit if milk fetches one-  twenty per hundred.  Just guessing at seed vitality and power to grow is queer  work; guessing at a cow's production and profit is risky and  unnecesary. It is very risky because many a dairyman is deceived'without the use of scales and test quite unnecessary because the dairy divison at Ottawa supplies free of charge milk  record forms.  An elderly lady on her first  way trip * noticed the ��������� comuni-  catioh cord overhead, and was  told by a mischievous boy that  it was to ring when she wanted  anything to eat. Shortly afterwards the old 'lady reached  up with her umbrella and gave  it a vigorous pull. The whstle  sounded, the breaks were put  together sharply in the drivers  efforts to stop. Presently the  Con came .rushing along and  asked "Who pulled the cord?"  "I did" replied the old lady  meekly. "Well, what do you  want?" snapped the official impatiently. "You may bring hie  some ham sandwiches and a cup  of tea if you will."  ��������� It is not recorded what the  Con said or did and a veil is  drawn over the boy.

Judd  writing to  a friend in Mission  City says:  ��������� "When the. trouble broke we  were just a short whie out of  the trenches and in close-up reserve.    When   tho  word  came  through, what  was  happening  we had to get ready to move up  to render assistance. We could  hear the unearthly    racket   a-  bout the front line and hear the  shells exploding, but a private  in the ranks is rarely-given a  general idea about what is going on, or coming off. We moved  up on the evening of the day  of tlie attack, but only took up  another reserve position.    Besides deluging the trench   areea  with shells the enemy kept up  an intense fire on all Tines of ad  vance  and  we  had    to    dash  through many gauntlets of fire  while on our way to this posit-  A   FIRM- IS  OFTEN" JUDGiHI)  BY ITS STATIONERY.

In open daylight   that   same  morning we were "told to counter attack.    It was glorious the  way the boys went over the parapet to  face'   almost    certain  death.    The  shells were hurtling against the trench flattening down at intervals, the air  was ful of screaming shrapnel  and the smoke from the explosions was choking, but at' a given  signal .and apparently undaunted the boys clambered on to the  parapet raised a 'lusty cheer and  started out. The enemey observer the move and a hail of machine gun and rifle bullets met  our boys and the shrapnel poured upon them.    The attack was'  successful from a tactical poini  but did not oust the enemy.  We were allowed a few days  rest after which we returned to  take up an important position!  in the real come-back stunt. Our  duty was to make a feint attack  to draw from those making the  main thrust.  The experience was certainly  far from pleasant and we are  just now recovering from the  effects of the strain which you  may easiy realize is tremendous  The shelling we underwent  admittedly was the fiercest and  most;concentrated ever faced  with one exception by troops  on the British front, we are told,  and we are convinced the statement is correct.
