E. DcHart, who  incidentally took a look at his hay  farm, formerly the Fortune place.  Mr. Deliart told the Press to give a  boost to the Kelowna Empire Day  celebration, and so. we would say,  if you would like to see what gives  promise of being a fast baseball  game, go to Kelowna, but if you  are looking for an all-round day  of pleasure, stick to Enderby.  ~lifieU~by the officials at thc Kamloops.

A letter was read from Mr. McKay, superintendent of the Revelstoke division-of the-C. P.

The  Clerk was instrucled to reply lo  Mr. McKay I hat the city was prepared to take the matter before the  railway commission unless the  crossing asked for is put at an  early date.  A communication from T. II. Calder asked permission on behalf of  the boys of the lacrosse and baseball teams for the privilege of  using the recreation ground on  the afternoon of-'.June 3rd, when  the boys will bold three or four  games for the public to'-.witness;  and the boys wish lo charge a  nonominal admission fee for the  assistance of the boys and thc encouragement of the sport. Permission granted.  : September 12th was fixed as the  date for the annual tax sale.  A letter from the Agent General's  office, Londlon, Eug., requested  that that office be supplied with all  information available relating to  this district.  Everything is now ready for the  dawn of Empire Day���������������������������all except  the trimmings and flags and bunt-'  ing.and the merry-go-round. All of  these things will be here on time,  however, and there is every promise that May 25th will be a very  happy day for all of Enderby and  her, guests.

MAY 21, 1914  A   VALUABLE REPORT  The   report  of  the  Royal   Commission    on   Agriculture   recently  published   in    full,    though 'fully  summarized at the time the report  was  presented   to  -the   Provincial  House, is one of thc most valuable  documents yet issued by the Government,  particularly  to  the agriculturists  of  the  Province.      The  commissioners go exhaustively into  every phase of-the industry, and,  after   reciting   conditions   as they  found them, they proceed to make  certain    recommendations,    whi.h  will   receive  the  attention  of  Ihe  local    legislature   when   thc    next  session opens.    These recommendations are "influenced by thc conviction   that there is nothing within the power of Ihe people of B.  C. to do thai will so much conduce  to  their present  and   future prosperity and  their national strength  and   well-being,   and   so   raise   the  credit of the Province in the money  markets  of  the  world,  as  to  take  Yiie7isures"fo='p]ace"IIteTbtisi"riess o f~  agriculture  on  a  sound  basis  and  make it attractive and profitable a:;  an occupation for a large and increasing proportion of its population."  Speaking of thc natural advantages of British Columbia for ihe  highest development of animal life,  combined with its large and ready  home market, which make the  Province particularly .suited for  dairying, horse-breeding, and the  production of beef, mutton, pork,  eggs and dressed poultry, thc report adds:  "Some districts are pre-eminently suited lo some branches, other  districts- lo others. In some parts  alfalfa, in other parts vetch and  oal hay, corn and roots, will be the  leading fodder-crops; but there are  no farming districts where crops  of 'valuable stock-food could not  be raised with great regularity. II  is instructive lo note in this connection that what seem lo be the  most prosperous districts in Ihe  Prairie provinces arc those where  live slock raising is the principal  industry rather than Ihe growing of  grain for sale. Districts where climatic conditions made wheat an  uncertain venture, and which accordingly were forced to devote  themselves lo mixed farming, seem  most uniformly thriving."  Thc Commission strongly recommends thc adoption by the Province of New Zealand's long-term  farm-loan system. "We find that  conditions in British Columbia are  such" that it requires considerable  capital to bring the land into a  proper state of cultivation for profitable production, and that in a  large proportion of cases the making of farms rather than farming  alone is the task that is being undertaken.  "In competing for settlers," thc  report says, "a country with an efficient system of long-term credit  will have a great advantage, and  agricultural countries which do not  adopt some such system arc likely  to lose many of their own farmers  by their emigration lo countries  furnishing such facilities. In the  countries where long-term farm-  loan systems have been adopted  there has been a marked improvement in the standard of living on  farms, which, including as it does  more recreation and culture, is not  only good for the farmers and their  families, but tends to keep the boys  and girls on the land and to attract others lo follow this pursuit.  This is found to be good for general business and for the welfare of  Ihe whole people." *  So much is said in the Roy<<\  Commission report about thc vast  improvements in New Zealand as  the result of the close co-operation  of the farmers and thc long-term  farm-loan law, that it is interesting to note some of the accomplishments there.  New Zealand's co-operative society began in two small rooms,  where seeds and fertilizers were  solcf and where"fariiicrs mertollis^  cuss grain prices. In a year's  time larger premises were built.  Then a grain and wool store was  added, a railway siding was built  to thc store, a London agent was  appointed, another in Sydney, Aus-  FLAGS  Of all sizes for decorating  purposes, to help to put  Enderby in gala attire for  Empire Day. Also baseballs, mitts, bats, and all  other sporting goods.  A. REEVES  Druggist & Stationer  Cliff St. Enderby  tralia, and others elsewhere. It is  at the present time the largest cooperative society south of the  Equator. It began with two employees, a secretary and a boy. Today its staff numbers 650 persons.  Among its departments area land  and estate agency, a live stock department, where the members'  stock are sold. Another department sells the members' grain and  supplies seed. Another department is devoted to agricultural machinery. A new branch sells motor cars. There is a bacon factory and freezing chambers. The  society has twine works and manure works of ils own, gram stores  and wool stores. It does a banking  business and has thousands of current accounts. It has bakeries,  coal-yards, packing warehouses,  motor garages, drapery, grocery  and provision departments. There  is nothing which farmers produce  which thc society does not deal in.  There is nothing they require  .which it does not cater for. Its  trade in its first year was 15,234  pounds sterling; in 1911 it had  risen lo 2,961,688 pounds sterling.  It started with 800 members. It  now has 6,445. It made a profit  of 51,000 pounds sterling on its  trade turnover. It has a reserve  fund of 100,000 pounds sterling. It  paid 5 per cent bonus on trade  and a rebate of 30 per cent on  commission, and has premises valued   at 120,199 pounds sterling.  One'of the things the New Zealand co-operators realized was  that a big business cannot'be car-  riedl. on without capital, and the  members provided adequate financial resources. Their paid-up  share capital is now 308,382  pounds sterling, and the uncalled  capital 281,728 pounds sterling.  That is the difference between  successful co-operative societies in  New Zealand, and non-successful  co-operative societies elsewhere.  The non-successful expect that cooperative societies will do all sorts  of things without adequate capital  being provided.'  ,1 POWER OR A MOB���������������������������WHICH ?  Organization is a modern policy.  The organized man is a power, he  moves shoulder to-shoulder with  his brother; the unorganized man  is merely a part of a mob, with no  chart or compass to guide him.  Organization is the spirit of progress, and the spirit of progress is  the greatest asset a business or an  individual can have.  The more people we can work  with and for, the bigger and better  you and I are.  We are living in an age of organized interests. Men get together lo  discuss things; to better conditions. They arc doing it in a spirit  of progress.  ,  Reciprocity, mutuality, co-operation are combined in this spirit,  and_the_ greatest of theseis _co;P.p-,  cration.  Competition may have been the  life of trade once, but it is no longer so. Competition died when  the inventive genius of modern en-  giners devised machines that will  manufacture beyond our present  economic wants. Competition, then,  became suicidal and destructive,  and anything that is suicidal is dying���������������������������dead. V\rc have pased through  Ihe savage age, the stone age, the  competitive age, nad now we arc  passing into thc co-operative age.  We will not be here so very long,  anyway, and soon Death, the kind  old nurse, will come and rock us  to sleep���������������������������and we had better help  one another while we may.

This is the first season  that Enderby has been in a position  to take advantage of these department allowances, and the executive  committee are working hard to make  the most of the opportunity.  It is proposed to hold the annual  exhibition on or about Sept. 12th.  The scope oi this exhibition will be  extended far beyond the limits of the  past horticultural exhibitions given  here. It is intended to make it  the final exhibition of five to be held  during the season. The prize list  for this exhibition has not been pre-  paredi^C=DW=it^i������������������"undefst1oV^  it will be along the lines of other  other Valley shows, though somewhat  restricted to keep within safe limits.  Beginning in May, it is proposed to  hold monthly window exhibitions of  siuch fruits, flowers .and vegetables  as mature at that time, the purpose  being to encourage our growers to  produce the stuff when it can be put  on the market at its highest price,  and before the market is glutted by  produce from all directions. , For  instance, in May and June, prizes  will be offered for the fruits and vegetables that can be put on the market locally grown, but are not, generally, until the following month*  These window displays are to be  made in the store windows���������������������������where  the privilege is granted���������������������������the intention being to interest the public 'as  well as the Society members'.  In addition to these monthly window displays and the annual show,  it is proposed to offer three prizes  ���������������������������$25, $15 and $10���������������������������for the best kept  garden and premises, entries to be  made at the commencement of the  season and the judging to extend up  to the time of the September show  when the prizes will be awarded.  Homeseekers Should  r  Goirne to Enderby  BECAUSE it is one of the healthiest spots j on- earth, only two children and no adults having.died of.  disease, in the last eight years.  BECAUSE, when you arrive, the  Board of Trade will take you in hand  and make you feel at home and see  that you are satisfactorily settled.

There  are Innumerable medical fallacies that seem to be well founded.  One fallacy la that beef tea Is  nourishing. It"Is nothing but  water In which certain pleasant  and exhilarating meat salts are  dissolved. You would starve to  death on beef tea alone, the  same as on whisky or on coffee.  Another fallacy Is that alcohol���������������������������whisky���������������������������warms the body.  Alcohol lowers the temperature.  It ultimately-chills, instead of  warming.' Hence it is of no ue<7  .whatever as a guard against  cold. Alcohol, moreover, is not  a food, and does not create'any  new force, but may perhaps en--  able a man, to use up a' little of  his reserve power more quickly."  A third fallacy Is that v one  egg contains as much nourishment as a pound of meat. ''Sick  people without appetite, think  complacently that if they take  an egg or two a day thoy 'are  doing well. . As a matter of fact,  they are doing anything. but,  well. They must remember, if'  they are substituting eggs for  meat, that eight eggs, not one,  are. required to equal one pound  of meat.( Then, there's the liver,  fallacy.- Many,- as soon as their '  stomachs get out oforder, begin  to treat/thelryliver.- "But WeJliver Isa dangerous thing to treat  unlets 'one-'understands It,,.for  there are "over-ninety distinct  liver troubles,"and what is good  for one of them, may be bad for.  all ,the rest.    .<���������������������������-*.

JOHNSTONE, Enderby  AN EXCELLENT ARRANGEMENT  It is safe to say that all who  study without bias the arrangement which Ihe" Borden Government has brought down for the  relief of thc Canadian Northern  will agree that, taking everything  into account, it is an excellent one  in every way, at any rate for Ihe  country.  Briefly, the Government guarantees the bonds of the company lo  the exlent of forty-live millions. In  return, there will be a consolidation of the thirty odd companies  which make up the Canadian Northern system, including railway  and steamship lines, express, terminal and telegraph companies, and  all othciyinlcrcsts of whatever kind  and the capital slock of the whole  concern is reduced from -$M5,000,-  000 to $100,000,000, of which the  Government will receive outright  ������������������40,000,000, inclusive of the ������������������7,-  000,000 received last year. This is  the immediate compensation.  The Government is further protected by a mortgage on the entire  assets of Ihe company, and will  supervise the proceeds of the guar-  anted securities in order that they  may be properly applied to thc  completion and improvement of  the system. Should the company  default either in respect to the securities tha! arc guaranteed, or for  any other reason, thc Government  lias power forthwith to take over  the road as thc absolute properly  of the Dominion, subject only to  the bonded indebtedness.  No part of Canada is more interested in the completion of thc  Canadian Northern than is British  Columbia. Stagnation in C. N. redevelopment, or bankruptcy of  that road, means commercial stagnation. Penetrating the most fertile parts of Western Canada, with  lines projected or partially constructed, in many districts, the  failure of the Canadlian. Northern  would work a hardship in ihe  country tributary to it- as well as,  throughout   thc  West,   and   would  have meant ruin to many innocent  thousands. The Government's por-  posals, which protect the people,  yet go to make this road an effective factor in western transportation, will be most welcome and  strongly endorsed, in the West.  Not only to the people, but to the  Provincial  governments,  must  the  settlement   be   heartily welcomed.  Each of the four Provincial governments had  become  endorsers  for  Ihe C. N.'R. for many millions.   To  have had to assume payment of in-  tcrelsl   on   the   bondl   guarantees  would have    crippled,    and,   perhaps, seriously embarrassed  some  of   these   Provincial   governments.  Placing the Canadlian Northern  on a sound basis will do much to  increase the prosperity audi progress of the West.    Railway construction will again be underway,  .and a more hopeful spirit followed  by trade expansion will result. Districts waiting to be scrvedl by Ihe  Canadain Northern will now have  every  prospect  of  realizing their  desire, and a strong compteitor for  western trade will replace a road  which was at the mercy of its rivals.     Incidentally   the   Okanagan  District is one,of the sections that  will   immediately   beneiit  by    the  new arrangement.  THE COCKTAIL BITE  Mynheer Nicholas von Ncllcn-  bogen, of" Curaco, who has'arrived  at New York, declares that the  Dutch colony is happy in thc possession of a "jag bug" whose bite is  intoxicating. One bite has the effect of a cocktail, he declares,  while a number of bites produce  such consequences as ale followed  by champagne. A parasite has  bceir introduced on the island, he  declares, which destroys the jag  bug and, strange to relate, anyone  who has been bitten by the jag bug  and then by the antidotal bug immediately becomes sober and a te-  taller thereafter.  Oh, happy, happy men of Curacos,  It's a very welcome "jag bug" that  you've got  Von Nellcbogen says  (he ought to  know,)  Its bite is like a cocktail taken hot.  Oh,happy, happy men of Curacos,  Several bites from this intoxicating  thing,  Have consequences, as you already  know,  That drinking.ale and champagne  often bring.  But of all you happy men of Curnco  There is one who didn't like this  little bite,  He's a kill-joy, as everyone must  know,  Who brought the antidotal parasite.

Buy your bread tickets at  Joe's.'  Preservatives    Prolong   Life    of  the  , Poorest  Woods  As a result of the many Inquiries  In  regard  to  the preservative treatment of    fence-posts,    the    Forestry  Branch, Ottawa, issued a circular on  this subject.   The great advantage of  these  treatments  is   that they  keep  even cheap woods free from decay for  from ton to fifteen years. ��������������������������� Many kinds  of -wood  found in  farmers' woodlota  ���������������������������will  last,  when  used  as  posts,  only  ���������������������������four years or thereabouts; after treatment,  such  as  described,    they  last  (twice or three times, even four times  as long.      Creosote,    which costs in  Canada, from ten to twenty-five cents  a  gallon, is the    best    preservative.  When boiling-hot creosote is applied  liberally with a brush���������������������������a paint brush  or ���������������������������whitewash brush, for instance���������������������������to  the butts of well-seasoned posts from  which the bark has been removed, it  sinks into the wood for a distance of  about  a  quarter  of  an  inch.      This  should add at least ten years to the  life of a post made from a non-durable  .wood, such as poplar, balsam, fir or  spruce.   This is not tlie best method,  but it is the simplest and, on a small  scale, probably the cheapest.    Other  methods  require  that . the  posts  be  kept covered in tanks of hot creosote  for a longer or shorter  period.    Besides lengthening the life of the post,  the preservative treatment also tends  to reduce the cost of the posts in another way, for, as cheap local woods  can be used, the first cost and the cost  of  transportation    are usually much  lower than for cedar, oak or tamarack.   Moreover, as posts will need to  ���������������������������be  set less  often,  the proportionate  icost of setting the post will be less.  Taking into account all the items that  go to make up the cost of the post,  and comparing this with the number  of years it will last, it will be found,  in the majority of cases, to be much  less for treated posts.   ...
