There is a humorous side to  this unfortunate affair���������������������������at least it  would be humorous If not so flagrant  and difficult to understand. When the  ,ccident occurred, Mr. Attenborough  endeavored to convince the several  men in the group of skaters that his  leg was broken, but they would not  be convinced, and ridiculed him for  not showing more sand.

The president of the Dominion Express Company also gave  us assurances that he would aid us  in developing thc trade in carload  lots by express from points in the interior of British Columbia to Alberta  ancl the Prairie Provinces.  "Mr. Kimmins, manager of the E.  D.-Smith Fruit-Company,-which has  developed an enornTous fruit business  from the Niagara district to -cities in  the Canadian Middle West and the  Maritime Provinces, shipped-.last year  140 carloads to Manitoba and 180 car  loads to the Maritime Provinces by  express. Most of these shipments  were sent direct to the retailers, especially in the smaller towns.  "The advantages of shipping by express in carload lots are many, as  not only does the consignment arrive  in fresher condition but the full flavor of the soft fruits' is secured by  allowing them to ripen an the trees  before gathering. Then again, this  method eliminates one and sometimes two middlemen, which means  an increased profit to the grower."  WILL NOT "BE DRIVEN  The new policy adopted by the Okanagan Telephone   Company,   which is'  one of high-handed   compulsion,  bids  fair to   eventually .-put the company,  out of business so far 'as the Okanagan Valley is concerned.

Nothing  was added to rest or contingent fund  this year, but the profit and loss account now stands at a little more  than a million dollars. .. Like the  other Canadian banks, deposits show  a slight decrease, and on October 31  stood at $1S9,580,000. This, of  course, accounts for tht slight change  in assets, which now stand at the  enormous sum of $244,787,000. Current loans and discounts show an increase of fifteen millions, caused, as  the president remarks, "by taking on  new business and by the increased  legitimate requirements of our customers."

DECEMBER 18, 1S13  BIG INCREASE IN PROFITS  General increase in bank profits, as  is usually the case in times of financial stringency, is reflected in the annual statement of the Bank of Montreal. The profits for the year ending October 31 were $2,648,402, an increase of $130,000 on the same capital and the same rest. Last year  $250,000 was set aside for., bank  premises; this year the sum of $485,-  000 was taken out of profits for this  purpose.     This looks like prosperity  No profession in the world, says  the Canadian Courier, is more  preached at than agriculture, but the  preaching seems to have limited results. Dr. Creelman, president of  the Ontario Agricultural College,  says that farming should be taught  in the schools. , So have a great  number of us. But with what result?  Is there a public school in Canada  teaching the elements of farming? If  so, let the principal stand up and  tell about it.  Manitoba, British Columbia and  Nova Scotia have authorized a primer on agriculture, and some teachers  in these pravinces have seen it. But  do they teach the elements of farming? Some years ago, the Ontario  authorities induced Mr. C. C. James  to get out a primer on agriculture,  and it was made "permissible." Some  teachers bought copies and lost them  A few booksellers still have copies on  their "reminders" table and offer  them at five cents each. But is  there a public school teacher in-Ontario to-day that ever planted . a  grain of wheat or a plot of alfalfa in  his school yard?  REAPING THE WHIRL WIND  ���������������������������Just   arrived: D. &   A. corsets, at  Speers'.  The Winnipeg Telegram criticises  Sir Wilfrid Laurier, who has lately  been speaking on behalf of duty-free  foodstuffs as a factor in lowering the  cost of necessaries:  "It is rather pitiable to see Sir  Wilfrid Laurier making a Liberal  policy to reform conditions which  arose during his own administration  of the government of Canada. If the  government of a country has anything to do with the high cost of  living, as either causing it or being  able to remedy it, then the Laurier  Government is responsible for the  high cost of living in Canada, and the  curative processes should have been  put in force while the evil was growing and not only after its effects have  become so burdensome.  "What Sir Wilfrid Laurier will not  see, but what everydoby else thoroughly understands, is that he is trying to found the Liberal party upon  the policy ol unpicking the web which  for fifteen years it wove itself. If  the country is reaping the whirlwind,  it is he himself who sowed the wind.  This makes his present position ancl  that of his party a little dismal.  What a swan song for him at 72 to  cry out: 'Look at. the havoc I have  wrought,' and plead for the grant of  power to alter everything !  "Laurier and the Liberal party,  however, are neither the cause nor  the remedy for the . high cost of liv-  iag in Canada. Prosperity is inevitably accompanied by rising prices  and, with the apex of prosperity, the  cost of living is highest. High prices  are not the cause of prosperity, but  prosperity is the cause of high prices.  It is'not the. only "cause of high prices in ��������������������������� particular commodities, and  with these, legislation can deal, but  it is the only and invariable cause of  a general rise in the price level."

Vancouver  JNO.BURNHAM  Agent  Enderby  That the Okanagan United Growers  Ltd., the big co-operative association  has made an unprecedented success in  handling the marketing of the fruit  and produce of the Okanagan Valley,  was clearly demonstrated at the gen  eral meeting of the skareholders recently held at Vernon. At that  meeting, according to the Vernon  News' report of the proceedings, facts  ancl figures were submitted for the  consideration of the shareholders,  which, when examined critically, resulted in unbounded" enthusiasm and  satisfaction.  Commendation of the work of the  year was unanimous, and the prevailing opinion among those present  was that the marketing problem had  been satisfactorily solved, and -that  the fruit growing industry of thf  Valley is -at last assured of immense  success. The season's work has not  only been" successful, but has been  carried on in a manner so'economical  that the expense account is far lower  than had been expected.  .  The reoort of R. Robertson,' manager of the oreanization, stated tbat  no less than ?20.000. or approximately, one-half of the charges retained to  cover operating expenses, would, at  the end of the season, be refunded to  the local associations.  Tbe figures of the report, complete  to November'30, showed that ��������������������������� the  shipments of.the association had been  941. carloads, . comprised of 536 ,cars  of fruit, 354 cars of vegetables and 51  of hay. - Of this . total, the largest  item was. 305 cars-of-apples. Peaches  handled totaled 64? carloads, plums  30 cars, prunes 34 cars, potatoes 174,  onions 63J in -sacks, and 28 cars in  crates, arid cabbage 52 cars.  The financial, statement to November ._ 30 was - gratiiymg in "every particular. . -November .sales totaled  $61,085, bringing ' the sales total-'for  the year^-to that -date to,"theTsum' of  $423,651,~, of '"wiiich_; $303,832; was realized from fruit-,''and.$ll*9',818*from',the  sale of vegetables; *;   As z-"��������������������������� >' "' _"  The amount-, reserved.to." cover, hand-,  ling charges,,-.to._ date .totals.$40,259,  whereas the actual' expenses, to" Nov.  30rcome- to ��������������������������� only '-$16;538,''-ieav*ing ��������������������������� a  surplus in .-the. r charge account _ of  about $24,000."'    ' i/i 7  Reviewing the situation, of the shipping season to date, Mr.' Robertsor  briefly outlined it as> follows:- . ""  ."Cherries, apricots - and .earl-  peached did not carry-wellff; ,In our  experience this .was due/to'_a" number  of causes: Cherries . to '"the.excesisivp  rains in -many- cases, "to shipment1  going forward ;"overripe.c with a view  of trying to save the crop; apricots,  excessive moisture followed by "extreme heat, .which seemed to have thf  effect of causing the apricots to riper  abnormally fast; the early peache?  did, not seem to develop with- the  same-=ampunt=of^matured^body=in=.the_  peach as usual, and the stock that  appeared to be in good condition  even for shipping by freight, undor  tests made in Vernon warehouse were  found to be unfit to ship within 2-1  hours when held in a cool place.  "Early, apples and crabs all moved  out at good prices. Florence crabs  sho_uld_ not_be shipped another season  ���������������������������there was a good demand for Transcendents and Hyslops. " Owing to  the shortage in the market, we have  shipped ��������������������������� out , a good many cars of  cooking ��������������������������� , apples at prices ranginp  from '55c to $1.15 per box. On thc  good standard varieties prices will  be satisfactory; on what might be  termed 'ofl' varieties of apples, price:;  will not be satisfactory���������������������������this again  owing to the competition from, the  other side of 'C grade stock.  "I am strongly of the opinion that  for another season a list of the apples should be gone over very carefully; the best varieties decided on,  which would be graded No. Is and  2s, 'ofl' varieties graded, straight  orchard run with culls only taken  out. The market for apples we  think should be: Por the best grades  of No. 1, the larger cities andv for  export trade; for the straight run  orchard pack, Northwest country  points>  "Early potatoes started out very  high. The extreme shortage of  money and a desire to participate in  the higher prices brought about a  condition which proved very- unsatisfactory.   Shipments'  were made that  should never have gone out; they  were showing shrinkage in 48 hours,  or by the time they reached Calgary.  This re-acted on our sales, and when  the shipments should have gone out  by reason of being better matured,  we found it difficult to make sales  owing to previous shipments landing  in bad order.  "With   the    exception   of one pool  overing potatoes, fairly satisfactory  results were obtained. In the early  fall it appeared that we would be  able to get about $18 for our fall  crop, but owing to some of our competitors forcing the price down, we  were compelled to follow to some extent, although very slowly, till sales  were made as low as $15, owing to  our being unable to secure anything  like     an   accurate   estimate   of   the  uantities available.  The matter of local sales was discussed at the meeting, and it was  finally decided to recommend that  ocal associations have full control of  the sales in their own territory, but  before going outside of same they  should request permission of the Central. The matter of the Central or  the locals buying outright from outsiders was discussed. It was finally  decided that only the Central should  do the buying, on the distinct understanding that the supplies of members be taken .care- of first, and th"t  in no case must such buying be "done  or speculative' purposes.

Pure Seed Distribution by Provincial  and Dominion Departments  By instructions of the Hon. Minister of Agriculture, a distribution of  superior sorts of grain and potatoes  will be made the coming winter ancl  spring' to Canadian farmers. The  samples for general distribution will  consist of spring wheat (5 lbs) white  peas (5 lbs.) These will be sent out  from Ottawa. A distribution of potatoes' (in 3 lb. samples) will be car-  oats (4 lbs1), barley (5 lbs) and field  ried on from several of the experi.  mental farms, the Central Farm at  Ottawa supplying only the provinces  of Ontario and Quebec. All samples  will be sent free, by mail.  Applicants must give particulars in  regard to the soil on their farms,  and some account of their "experience  with such kinds" of grain "(or potatoes) as tbey have grown; so'that a  promising sort for' their particular  conditions may be selected.  Bach application must be separate  and must be signed by the applicant.  Only one sample of grain and one of  potatoes can be sent to each farm.  Applications on any (kind of printed  form cannot be accepted. If two or  more samples are asked for in the  same letter onlyone will be sent.  As the supply ox seed is" limited,  farmers are advised to apply early;  but the applications will not neces-  snrily be filled in the exact order in  which they are received. Preference  will always be given to the most  thoughtful and explicit requests. Applications received after the end of  January will probably be too late.  All applications for grain (and applications from the provinces of Ontario and Quebec for potatoes)  should_.be_addr_esscd__to__the_D_omijiipn  Ccrealist, Central Experimental Farm  Ottawa. Such applications require  no postage. If otherwise addressed  delay and disappointment may occur.  Applications for potatoes, from  farmers in any other province should  be addressed (postage prepaid) to the  superintendent of thc nearest Branch  Experimental  Farm  in  that province.

Orders for seed must be sent  through the secretary of the Farmers  Institute to which the applicant belongs.  2. The seed oats will be distributed  to all members of Farmers'' Institutes at the actual cost of seed plus  the transportation charges, except as  hereinafter provided.  3. The Department will pay the  transportation charges on-'-seed oats  supplied to members whose order is  accompanied ��������������������������� by an entry for the  Crop-Competition in oats for 1914,  provided that" the Institute to" which  the applicant belongs complies with  the conditions for the holding of the  Crop Competition. Forms of' application for seed oats and also for entry in the Competition, will be supplied to the secretary, and may be  obtained-from him.  4. Only the actual owner, renter  or superintendent of a farm may ob-  tiin seed oats from' the Department,  and that only for the purpose of  sowing the land which he owns, rents  or supervises.  5. Payment for the seed oats must  be made by the Institute, within 30  days from date of shipment.  6. All applications must be received  on or before Feb. lst, 1914.

Sufficient work has not been done  to enable us to advise a specific variety for a specific locality, but the  American .Banncr_._is__ a ....well-known  variety, and has been chosen as the  one most likely to give general satisfaction.  The Department expects to be able  to deliver thc oats at about $1.00 per  bushel. WM. E.  SCOTT,  Deputy Minister of Agriculture.

The bride overheard the remark and  noted the movement of her liege in  the direction of the old clothes, and,  in a stage whisper said:  "Ole, aint you no go to bed!"

After noting the good results In  Australia and New Zealand, of government aid to farmers in this respect, it must appeal to the Commissioners that this Is one of the  first things that must be done here  before any. real progress can be made  in bringing .the agricultural* industry  of the Province up to1 the "high.standard necessary to cope with the. growing demands for farm produce.  Alexander Lucas, M.P.P. for Yale,  who-recently returned from a visit-to  Australia and New -Zealand, has presented his report to the. Royal' Commission on Agriculture, for which he  was collecting-data. The history of  the, agitation which resulted-in the  establishment of the New Zealand  Government's Advances to Settlers  Office, says Mr. Lucas in his report,  is .briefly this: In twenty years, between 1873 and 1893 the value of exports of all kinds of produce from  New Zealand, in spite of a rapid expansion on population, had only increased 53.22 per,cent; and in view of]  the .financial obligations of the colony  it was felt that some decisive action  on the part of tha government was  imperative," otherwise bankruptcy  would be inevitable. '   --  Of/all.: industries,'  agriculture _had  .been-the.most important "and its* de-'  ���������������������������velopment the least satisfactory, .and  the" Hon.

European Agricultural . Credit  Systems, he decided that none of  them could be adopted, as the conditions in a new country like New Zealand were so different to" those existing in the old, settled communities of  Europe. ' Mr. Seddon's view was  that agriculture is in much the sanie  =,position=as^any^otheEr=industry;=.jf^the  output is to be increased more labor  and capital must be expended, and  more up-to.date methods adopted.  He also realized that no *>ri/ate  company would or could loan money  to farmers for a sufficiently long  period to enable them to meet the interest and amortization charges from  thcnejt^earnings of their farms, and  at the same time leave tbem enough  of a surplus to be used in bettering  conditions of farm lh������������������; or at a rate  of interest which, the farmers could  afford to pay; and as every citizen in  the colony- was interested in the development of agriculture, he claimed  that it was the duty of the people,  through their representatives in par  liament, ,to furnish the necessary capitals Accordingly, in 1894, legislation providing" Government Guaran  teed Loans was introduced into and  passed by the parliament, and was  known as the "Advances to Settlers"  Act. The money was raised by the  Government and lent to the farmers  and settlers through the Advances tc  Settlers Office, for the establishment  of which the Act made provision. The  original Act has been amended'from  time to time, and today is known as  the "State. Guaranteed Advance" Act  the funds being administered throug):  the State Guaranteed Advance Office.  As to-the'results .'obtained largely  as the'direct result of this legislation, it is.interesting to consider how  it affected the export .trade of.the  country. In 1873. the total exports  of domestic products frdm New Zealand amounted to ������������������5,500,000 sterling..  In 1893, the year preceding the introduction of the Act, the value of such  exports, aggregated ������������������8,900,000 sterling. In 1913, twenty years after It  had been decided to make advances to  E-'ttlers, and eighteen years after the  system went into effect, the exports  were valued at no less than ������������������23,000,-  000 sterling. For the fifteen years  preceding Government Guaranteed  Loans the exports increased 35.30 per  cent, while for the fifteen" years after  the introduction of the system the  exports increased" 161.,54'per cent.

The deposits in  the postoffice savings banks amount  to ������������������15,543,187," and in other savings-  banks to ������������������1,651,255, or a total deposit amounting" to $207,285,100, belonging to 405,566 depositors, bein?  one depositor for every 2.53 of the  population. : Those who have money  on-deposit loan very-largely to those  requiring short date loans. The  chartered banks also loan to farmers  on proraisory notes endorsed by one  or two farmers quite as liberally as  the European Co-operative Credit  Banks loan to farmers on that continent, and iii this way the question  of short-term loans, to enable the  farmer to finance his year's business,  is solved.  i The number of cattle kept by the  farmers has increased over 100 per  cent during the last 15 years. Insolvencies have decreased over 50 per  cent, and marriages increased over 33  per cent since 1900.  !   There are now   in active operation  ,in the   Dominion,   398 butter, cheese.  and condensed milk factories; 42 ham  and bacon curing factories; 427 skira-  j ming stations; 61 fish and meat freezing plants; 81 flax mills; 66 flour mills  , and 22 fruit and   jam preserving fac-  , tories   ior   each   1000   population;  a  , large percentage   of   these are co:op.  erative.  "The State Guaranteed Advance  office has since March 1, 1895, made  27,689 loans, the average loan being  $2,302. The total amount loaned  since the inception of the system  amounts   to   $65,951,645.38;   of     this  WHENBUYINGYEASTI  INSIST ON HAVING  THIS PACKAGE  AOXAi  HpHp ,  DECLINE SUBSTITUTES    sum   $31,716,654.68   has   been repaid,  leaving $36,244,980.62 on current loan  on March 31, .1912. -  ���������������������������  There have been only 35 foreclosures  in the eighteen years. There were  some small losses which have been  written off, and the "net profits- otf  the system amount to $2,884,874.61-.  Government Loans in Australia i *  In Australia a policy identical with  that inaugurated in New Zealand has  been adopted, and of its operation in  Australia, Mr. Lucas says: - "The.  system (in Australia) - has been as  successful as in New Zealand in proportion to the amount of money  loaned, and the benefits resulting  therefrom have- been in like propor  tion. The accumulated profits in-the  six states'amount to $1,132,354." The  land brought under cultivation between 1895- and 1911 increased in  Western Australia, where loans were  more liberal, over 900 per cent, while  in Tasmania,' where loans were very  small, it only increased.27- per cent.*...

It is only reasonable to suppose that  when Australia has as much loaned  out in proportion, the proportionate  value^of^her^exports���������������������������will���������������������������be-nearly**1  equal to New Zealand's. As it is  she stands third amongst the nations  of the world and is only exceeded by  New Zealand and Belgium, while she  is $30 ahead of her nearest competitor, the Argentine Republic.

Space will not permit  us to swing much into detail, but a  casual glance will convince one of the  fact that the Christmas selections  this year are from the best on the  open market.  In men's wear, clothing, boots ancl  shoes, hats and caps, etc., Bob Peel  has the goods of real quality, and is  making his prices   to suit the times.  In groceries, ladies wear, dry goods  and notions, W. J. Woods has made  a point of putting in stock the high-  quality goods his customers are in  search of. The piano gift competition has added not a little to the interest centred upon his store this fall  Lad  ies!  Dry  Come in and see  our Special Offerings this week in  Goods & Dress  Goods, and Xmas  Novelties.  Our PIANO CONTEST will  end this month. Contestants  will have special opportunities to  increase their chances of winning  this handsome present by keeping  a sharp lookout on their December purchases; and those of their  friends. ' "   :  W. :J'.- Woods  but, far more important that the  gift piano, has been the freshness of  his stock, and the obliging service he  and his assistants are ever ready to  give.  There is something to please all  classes at A. Reeves drug store���������������������������for  the ladies, the gentlemen, the girls  and the boys���������������������������whether it be of little  or big cost. To name even a fraction of the useful and ornamental  articles there to be found would require all the space we can give to  this department, so we would just  advise you to go and see for yourself f  - The Enderby Music store has a  heap o' nice things besides the best  things in music. Tf you have the  money to buy an Edison music box,  of course you'll do it���������������������������couldnjt resist  ���������������������������but if you haven't the money, then  you'll have to satisfy yourseh with  some of his Limoge chinaware, cut  glass or electrical appliances and  reading lamps. V/And if It's for tbe  kiddies, why, then, you will fall back  upon his dolls or mechanical toys.  If you want to make the wife happy and at the same time add inestimably to the- comforts of the bome  and the excellence of the cooking, go  tn the Flil+nn Wardwai *e Oompanv's  store and order a McClary range set  up. It will always please, and never  disappo nt. Or if this is too much  of a good thing, then you will find  many other things just as good but  not so much, such as- carving sets,  cut glass, and a hundred and one  single-article gifts.  - And" right next door you will find  Sidney and Mrs. Speers in their grocery and dress goods departments.  These young people have but recently  opened for business, but by dint of  hard work and close service, they are  rapidly "drawing " to "their -store the  best buyers''looking . for quality  coupled with right prices.  ���������������������������r In the Rutherford harness shop you  will find,  if you are a horseman, the  very-} best in harness and" horseman's  s supplies.     Mr. Rutherford has shown  what can be done in building up a  business even against difficulties provided you [know how to go about it.  Dill Bros., is another new firm this  year. In the few months they have  had hold of the business formerly the  property of Evans & Son, they have  built up a strong firm and captured  a big share of the grocery and gent's  furnishing business of the town and  district. Christmas week they intend to make things lively about  their     store. They     are    heavily  with cold-weather goods and fancy  wearing articles for- men, and want  to reduce the stock. To do ko during  Xmas week means that many are going to buy Xmas gifts there.  In household furniture you cannot  afford to overlook the offerings to be  found at the McPherson furniture  store. Here, too, will be found the  handsome and durable doll and baby  carriages and sleighs, which are ever  a source af delight to the children.  At tiie Enderby Opera House, a  particularly fine lot of picture reels  will be run off on the regular show  nights. This favorite passtime has  become very popular, and the shows  are well patronized. Another source  of pleasure for the young men, Xmas  week, will be the Enderby Pool room  where Mr. Thompson always keeps a  sharp look-out for the things which  would best offer entertainment to the  crowds    that    gather    there  nightly.  A piece of jewelery is always an acceptable gift, and Mr. F. Pyman has  the - selection that will surely suit all  classes. He is offering great bargains���������������������������a clean discount of 25 per cent  until * Christmas day.  Mr. Prior also has a small stock  in this line.  There is just one 'place -where you  can make sure of getting you Xmas  meats, fresh and in prime rondition,  and that is at the old reliable shop  of Geo. -R. Sharpe, presided over by  Mr.  Smedley.  Attenborough ���������������������������_& Courtenay'in .the  firm name of the partnership recently  entered -into between- R. C.' Attenborough and' N. B.

They  have the enthusiasm and energy to  (overcome difficulties, and are hitting  ' out at a pace that should win favor  with all buyers. They are putting  on their first big sale from the 22nd  to the 31st, which means a week or  more of clothing bargains.  Cf Oppertshouser is also "on the  map" In Enderby business circles. In  hardware novelties he has a select  stock of all the useful art des in this  line.  And when you - conclude your Xmas  shopping, just size up the situation,  and see how much work you'd save  the wife if you'd take her to the hotel for Christmas dinner. The King  Edward will provide handsome souvenir menu cards - for the occasion���������������������������  and you know what the meal will be  like.
