I McMahon, al 8 o'clock.  Capt. Russell, officer commanding military division No. 11, came  in from Victoria Tuesday morning  to take over from Contractor Russell the Enderby Drill Hall, which  has been awaiting final inspection  for the past month or more.  Capt. Russell was well pleased  with the building and took it over  without finding' anything with  which fault could be xfound.  Thc DrilJ Half is of the regulation type; 42x92 over all, with a  drill floor of select 1 7-8 birch,  40x06 feet,, with, three large storerooms on the first floor, arid three  officers' and reading room opening  off of a. balcony the fulfwidlh of  the interior. In thc basement arc  furnace rooms, ammunition closcls  and rifle range. . A concrete floor  the full length and width of the  building, acts as, a, protection for  the hardwood .floor. . The: social  rooms.opening-off thcybalcony-are  finished < in- the _v most{��������������������������� up-to-date  style, and theVbuilding throughout  is, of y the j most sutfstaiUial const rue-,  tion;fcompatible witff'theyservice- it  is to be piitUo. 7 ' ",77 V >���������������������������  ~-\ But, complete as the, Drill Hallis,  there arc features about it which  lead, one to ques'libn how it can be  effectually, put -to, thc service it is  the intention of thc rhilitia department thai it. shall' be , used.  These can be readily pointed out,  and.no   doubt   will.-be. amended.  . The Hon. Col. Sam. Hughes, minister of militia,  recommends  that  all Drill Halls should be made of  practical service to the community  in which they are located, as well  as of 'service to the companies of  militia for whom they are creeled.  He recommends that Ihey be made  thc meeting place for'agricultural  societies, for agricultural fairs, social gatherings, etc., for the building up and betterment of thc com-  munity^^Jusl^how--the==Endcrby-  Drill Hall can be made to fill these  functions in ils present condition  is somewhat difficult to understand.  The Drill Hall has but one entrance. It is in the front of Ihe  building, and some four or five feet  above the sidewalk. At present  a bank of earth rises abruptly  from the sidewalk 'to thc entrance,  which can be climbed when the  weather is fair if onecan have the  assistance of a strong hand from  the bank above. In wet weather il  would be next to impossible lo negotiate Ihe landing. The building  has no lavatories, no lie-shed, no  entrance to Ihe troop saddle rooms  except by the entrance in the front  of the building. It is not difficult  to imagine what Ihe condition of  that fine birch lloor will be when  the militiamen have lo carry their  saddles and trappings from the  front to the rear over it in their  spring and fall drills.  ~7We. understand these shortcomings have been, or are to be, pointed  out to the department, and there  is little doubl but that the alterations asked for will be ordered.  CITY COUNCIL MEETING  The regular meeting of the City  Council was held on Monday evening, present Mayor Barnes, and  Aldermen Gn>nt, Mack and Robin1  son.  After the adoption of the minutes as read) a letter was received  from the Board of School Trustees,  asking the cily to have'thc grades  defined of the streets in the vicinity.  of the Fortune school. The Clerk  was instructed to ask the city engineers, Messrs. Cummins & Aguew,  what the cost would be, and if satisfactory to order the work" done.  The question of housing thc road  roller and other road-making machinery was considered,.and the  Clerk was instructed to have specifications prepared for a suitable  building to be erected on thc  southeast "corner of the recreation  ground, 24x24 ,1'cet in dimension,  and to call for tenders for the erection.-ot" same. ��������������������������� ' 7,, 7,:S:'' ���������������������������-'//��������������������������� -*  y-^-Thc^sear^  the recently: passedbuilding by-law  ~y Mayor Barnes-reported^that7 the  .property owners on Baird's lane did  not .feel; disposed]to'^giyeyd_eed������������������r*to"  the pity. fbrjhc,land takeh?as ai lane;  and as "lhis "'was' the essential,cSn'di;  tion demanded by the city, before  work is to proceed.oii the sidewalk  petitioned Vfor;. tKc" whole miaitcr  was tabled without action.

BRIEF..,  The. recent destruction of a  small western town through one  night's fire would suggest to- our  citizens the advisability bf using  every precaution lo prevent the  repetition of such a calamity in our  community.

"    I      i   '"; ':'-  Major Langdon -and Miss Langdon -  arrived home from England June 25th.  and the cily is said lo have a fire  brigade, wilh fire chief and numerous officers. We do not know that  this is a fact, but il is generally believed thai we have these things.  Where a city has a paid fire brigade  thc men have lo practice daily, but  where thc brigade is volunteer, thc  notion seems to prevail lhat an occasional practice-is quite unnecessary, and wc have known volunteer  fire brigades go from one year's end  to another wilhoul a practice meeting, or a meeting of any kind.

The holes wouldn't be sealed up to  prevent a gusher gushing. That is  all stock-selling publicity, put out  in the shape of news, which the  papers are "easy" enough to, publish  as such. They do not work it long  in any oil field, and it will soon be  confined to the advertising columns  of the city dailies.  J    Gel your bread tickets at JOE'S.  Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to  Ihe Austria-Hungarian throne, and  thc Duchess of llohcnbcrg, his morganatic wife, were shot dead yesterday by a student on the main  street of thc Bosnia capital, a short  lime after Ihcy had escaped death  from a bomb hurled al the royal  automobile. They were .stain while  passing through the cily on their  annual visit to the annexed provinces of Bosnia and Herzegovina.  The archduke was struck full in  the face and the duchess was shot  through Ihe abdomen and throat.  They died a few minutes after  reaching Ihe palace to which Ihey  were hurried with all possible  speed.  Those responsible for the assassination look care it should prove  effective,'as there were two assaults  the first with a bomb and the second With a revolver. The bomb  was thrown at the royal automobile as it was proceeding to the  town hall, where a reception was  to be held. The archduke saw the  missile hurtling through thc air  and warded it off wilh his arm. It  fell outside the car and exploded,  slightly wounding two aide-decamp in a second car, and a half-  dozen spectators.  In the Ontario elections held this  week, the Whitney Government was  returned to power with a Conservative  majority of 55. THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday, July 2, 1914  THE ENDERBY PRESS  AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  have taken it upon himself to order the felling of  the orchard. Today, tlie expert gardener or city  engineer lhat suggests the slaughtering of growing trees to make way for some pet idea he may  carry in his noddle, is gently given Ihe hint to  move on. Men who know, do not destroy the  work of others to give place" to pet theories, and  Ihe garden "expert" who would destroy thc  growth of eight years to make room for another  tree is not a profitable person lo employ. Landscape arlisls whose advice is worth paying for  are men and women who make il a point lo not  destroy anything, bul work into their scheme the  Irees and growth found- upon the land, for Ihey  know, as we all know, how dillicull it is lo gel  Irees well slarled. j\n artist onlo his job would  have made a beauty spot out of Ihe orchard on  the school grounds, and one thai could have been  worked in nicely wilh any garden scheme thai  may be worked out for thc Fortune School.  These remarks will not bring back the city  properly destroyed, bul they wjll, in a mild way  a I least, give voice to thc strong protests which  have been laid against tlie member of Ihe School  Board responsible for thc order to cut thc trees  down. At thc same time, we would like to  enquire if wc now have a one-man school board,  who will lake upon himself to decide so important a mailer as this without consulting or listening lo his colleagues on the hoard ?

JULY 2, 1914  HIGH HANDED VANDALISM  No doubt had the father of George Washington  . known-his illustrious son had evil designs upon  lhat historical cherry tree, he would have hid the  hatchet' from George, tied his hands behind him  and locked him in thc attic. But thc father did  not know how lillJc George used his thinker  when he was a lad. Vandalism is somewhat excusable in boys. They must keep busy, and,  with a hatchet in hand, thc .most natural thing  for a boy lo do is lo chop something. If it is a  cherry tree thai falls il hurls thc owner worse,  bul the boy gets no more satisfaction out' of il  Hum if it were a fir tree in the woods.  Bul vandalism in the boy and vandalism in thc  man are two distinct qualities.    Had Ihe people  of  Enderby known   thai our Board of School  Trustees had evil designs upon the trees on the  Fortune School properly,  Ihey certainly would  have insisted on a guardian being placed over  Ihe Board.   Of all regrettable acts, the order lo  cut down  the eight-year-old fruit trees on  the  school property was the worst.   Such destruction  of city properly is considered by most people to  be little short of criminal vandalism.   Tt required  some seven or eight years of care and labor to  bring those orchard trees up to Ihe splendid de-  _=_:olap i li en Uth aUn i os t_o f=-t h ai i wii a (Ul a s U-Fri d ay-  morning.   Some of the trees had been allowed to  be abused in the past year or two, and could very  well have been spared without detracting from  Ihe general appearance of Ihe grounds.    In fact,  the grounds would  have been  heller had  they  been' taken  out.    Bul  lo  demolish  all,   leaving  nolhing   whatever   lhat   will   a (lord   shade   for  the school children or beauty lo Ihe grounds, is  severely condemned  by all  who  have seen  the  grounds since Ihe Irees Avere slaughtered.  To have left Ihe besl of Iheni, and sown Ihe  ground lo grass seed, would have given the  school children a delightful grass plot in the  shade of Ihe apple trees next season, and until  such,lime as the grounds which are to be laid out  are advanced suilicienlly lo be of practical use.  II will require the belter part of two years for  anything to show tbe first sign of growth, even if  the planting is done lhis fall, and il will lake six  or eight years, and tremendous cost and labor to  give the school grounds the shade and growth  Team work! What wonders can be accomplished by team work. The baseball team that  wins, is the learn that does the best learn work!  The champion football team, lacrosse team���������������������������in  fact, any organization where men have to work  to succeed by working for and with one another,  ���������������������������thc winning team���������������������������is always the team that  works together, as a body, not as individuals. In  like measure, Ihe community, or town, or city  that pushes ahead no matter how adverse thc  winds, is the one where the business men and  citizens generally work together, pull together,  gel together, stay together���������������������������work as a team.  SUCCESSFUL SEASON'S OUTLOOK  provided by the trees that were destroyed in an  hour or two last Friday morning.  There is no minute recorded on the minute  book of ll.ie Board of School 'Trustees authorizing anyone lo order the destruction of tbe Irees.  In' fact, Trustee Teece stales thai il was Ihe  intention of the Board lo have cut out only such  trees as were injured and which could not be  brought back lo symmetrical growth. And even  these were not lo be touched until the ground  had been gone over by Messrs. Cummins & Ag-  new, who are lo advise how best to lay them out.  Examination by the cily engineers has not yet  been made, bul will be sometime lhis week. It  cannot be said, therefore, that the destruction of  Ihe trees was to make way for other improvements, though, no doubt, il was believed to be  necessary  by  Trustee  Johnson,   who  seems   lo  When one compares general crop conditions  this year aviHi those of last season, and notes the  completeness of the. arrangements for shipping  and handling thc orchard and field crops made  by Mr. Robertson and his stall, in thc offices of  thc Okanagan United Growers, Ltd., as compared with the jumble of affairs when thc season  opened last year, one cannot but feel that tbe results of 1914 operations will give thc co-operative  movement in thc Okanagan an impetus that will  once and for all silence the voice of thc pessimist.  It will be remembered that last year Mr. R. Robertson took up thc management of the shippers'  unions under conditions that could not have  been more discouraging. With all the failures of  thc past staring him in thc face, and thc lack of  confidence oil the part of the growers to be com-  batled a I every poin t; with his working force  unorganized, and his selling organization not yet  perfected, Mr. Robertson took up the work wilh  the crop full upon him. Under these circumstances it was not strange that mistakes should  have been made. Bul, in spite of mistakes, in  spite of the incompleteness of his working organization, and the tremendous obstacles placed  in his way, largely by the very men he was working hardest lo assist, Mr. Robertson pulled the  shippers unions out at the end of the season with  a clean sheet, and a substantial cash balance for  1914 operations.  in the months that have elapsed since the  closing of last season, Ihe manager of the shippers unions has been hard a I work in season and  out of season, gathering up thc strings of his seil-  -ing-organizationr���������������������������and���������������������������perfecting���������������������������his-plans-4'or  lumdling this years' crops. The season opens  wilh all arrangements completed, with supplies  and men in readiness Lo handle thc harvest wilh  the least possible delay and in the most economical way. II is only reasonable to expect  the results of this season's operations to far excel  those of 1913. And wc feel that the growers of  Hie Okanagan are lhis year, for the first time, to  step into Ihe big things lhal are theirs by right of  superiority.

SOME THINGS TO THINK OVER  If, as Ihe Enderby Press says, thc Salvation  Army imagines God sent over 1000 souls lo the  bottom of the St. Lawrence because there was a  "Haw" in tlie Salvation Army, this appears lo us  lo be conclusive evidence lhal Ihe "Haw" is llicir  conception of God.

P. R. over the Rockies and the Selkirks. We take up Ihe trip at  Revelstoke this week, and cover  the beauties of Ihe trip on. the Arrow Lakes.  Al Revelstoke there is a mag-  niliceni viw of Ihe Columbia river  sweeping lo the Arrow Lakes;  ils  often been termed the Killarney of  British Columbia, owing to the  wonderful resemblance of this section to thai beautiful spot in Ireland made so famous in history and  song. ,  The trip down the upper lake is  filled "wilh inlerest. The steamer  passes by high  brown  hills; slips  l.y sleepy little towns that lie b:  (he lake brim, awaiting a railroad  or a steamer to wake them into lift  again.  Down the Lower Arrow Lake Ih  scenery is even prettier, for hen  thc mountains are more promineir.  and Ihe sides of the lake are higl  and precipitous.

JOHNSTONE, Enderby  A physician of the new school,  who, by-thc-way, can himself live  without appeals to the medicine  chest, gives this excellent bit of  advice:  "People who are harried, worried, in doubt, are dangerous in a  business way, unsafe and unreliable. They see slights where none  are intended, are jealous, peevish,  fretful and faull-linding. They  blame all their ills on others and  have a faculty of making a whole  household miserable.  And, of course, Ihey are unlovable. "  Such people have a coated tongue  cracked lips, plotchy complexion,  dull eyes, yellow leeth. These  things mean one of three things���������������������������  and usually all of ���������������������������them:  1. Overeating.  2. Underbreathing.  3. The wrong kind of food.  Cut. down your food quantity,  and increase your breathing . capacity,'and note how your thinking  improves.  Also, selecl your food with greater care.5 Taste is the test.? Cultivate taste.   Enjoy eating.  Fifty per cent of people eat like  Indians. They gobble, guzzle and  bolt. They eat anything arid  everything that is brought on.

Enderby's first window show.of  the season, inaugurated by the Agricultural and Horticultural Society,  and held Saturday afternoon in the  windows of the McPherson' Furniture Store, proved a great success.  Few people anticipated that there  would be such an exhibit.and fewer  We have taken the counter !stm 'believed that such a splendid  check books off the counter; j^���������������������������'^ cou,d ,)c raade in aslorc  this store is now on a cashpN,^J^lllhaviny h.u) ilIiylhing l0  We know   it   will   be better|,|0 with Ihe getting up of the win-  for OUr  patrons   and believe j (low show .ire lo be congratulated  it will be better for us. ion ,he sllcccss of lhe ini[ia] venture,  i there is no question as to whom the  This week We are prepared   full measure of praise is due.   Mr.  and Mrs. McPherson worked hard  to assist exhibitors, and in every  little detail Ihey showed the results  of previous experience in exhibition work. It was fortunate indeed  that Ihe Society placed the honor  of conducting the first window  show in Enderby upon them. .  Members of the Society who exhibited were prompt in bringing  forward their flowers, fruit and  vegetables, and by noon, all exhibits were in place, properly  ticketed and classified. Here is  where the experienced hand of Mr.  and Mrs. McPherson was evident.  There was no confusion, no mixing  of classification, and no errors in  ticketing. And this is saying a  good deal, for in a window show  with only an hour or two in which  to place the exhibits and properly  record them, there is more likelihood of a "mix-up" than in the regular fall show, when there is so  much more lime and so much more  assistance to place ihe exhibits in  order.  Mr. McPherson placed long tables  along each of the large show windows of .his store, and upon these  he arranged the flowers, the small  fruits and vegetables most admirably to be seen from thc street.  So well were they placed, and the.  whole thing so invitingly set up,  lhe public' did not content itself  with looking in. All who saw il  from the outside wanted more of it,  and the tables were lined with admirers throughout , Ihe afternoon  and evening.  ..-Not only was there keen competition in the articles and varieties  for which prizes were given by the  Society, but many members placed  on thc tables excellent samples of  flowers, fruits and vegetables for  which no prizes were offered, and  Ihe interest was quite as keen in  these exhibits as in the exhibits for  which prizes were given.  Excellent exhibits of new potatoes were shown by Messrs. S. Y.  Hartry, J. A. Miller and G. ... Williams; a fine table of green peas  came from the gardens of A. M.  Baird, F. Waby, G. F_. Williams, J.  A. Miller and S. F. Hartry; ,Mr.  Harlry and Mr. Thorn also showed  samples  SOMEBODY  "Somebody did a golden deed,  Somebody proved a friend in need,  Somebody sang a beautiful song,  Somebody   smiled   lhe  whole  day  long,  Somebody  thought:  '  'Tis well  to  live.'

To Mr. Collin is due thanks for  an abundance of flowers for general display from his garden; and  Mrs. G. Rosoman furnished a pretty  design of Sweet William, trimmed  wilh ribbon grass, or gardner's garter. Mr. Gibbs placed a beautiful  delphinium on display, and Mr.  Baird a hydrangea of perfect development.  Prize Winners  And now. we come to thc tables  that won lhe prizes���������������������������lhe regular  competitions. In roses, Mrs. G.  C. Salt won first and Mrs. Henry  Greyell second. Thc rose tables  were the most admired by all, not  only for the perfection of the exhibits, but for the large named  varieties.  Tn pansies the competition was  even keener, the number of entries  occupying the larger part of one of  the tables. Those exhibited by  Miss Gibbs carried off first prize,  and Miss Forster second.  There were three very fine collections of garden flowers; that of  Miss Forster taking first, and.that  of Mrs. G. L. Williams second.  The little Misses Paradis had excellent exhibits of wild flowers,  that of Miss Josephine numbering  some 65 varieties. To her first  prize was given, and to Miss Antoinette second.  In strawberries, Mr. Miller easily  had the lead; it would be difficult  to beat the box of Clark's Seedlings shown by him. Mr. Baird  showed the box that took second.  In carrots, Mr. Waby showed the  winners, with Mr. II. Dodge second.  Mrs. G. Rosoman exhibited the  first-prize turnips, and Mr. Miller  second.  .. In  radishes, Mr. Hartry carried  off  everything.  In onions, Mr. Waby first, and  Mr. Hartry second.

Her while and  colored bridal bouquets, and funeral designs, made entirely of wild  Mowers, attracted unusual interest,  and elicited much astonishment  front those who did not before believe that  anything so dainty and  TAMING THE WILD ANIMALS  The success which Mr. J. M.  Thomas, a cattle rancher of Okanagan Falls, has*had in taming wild  mountain sheep to come down  from their fastnesses and feed in  his fields, has been attested to by a  remarkable photograph recently  sent to the Provincial Game Warden  The photograph shows a small  .their lambs eating clover hay  herd of Ihe mountain sheep with  which has been thrown out as food  for the ranch horses. The snapshot was taken at a distance of 35  yards and shows several horses in  the picture as well as the mountain  sheep.  Mr. Thomas, who before going to  Okanagan Falls some years ago,  was an officer at thc New West-  minstei���������������������������penitentiaryr=has���������������������������foi-several years made a hobby of caring  for the wild life in the vicinity of  his ranch. When a close season  was declared for the mountain  sheep in the Okanagan, he in the  winter weather would put out some  food for any occasional mountain  sheep he saw in the hills. In the  comyse_oi_J h ree jo^^^^  in Enderby yet, nnd don't expect to, but we hope to strike  better times soon. That's why  folks arc painting ihe outside  of their stores and bouses this  season���������������������������Unit, and tbe special  low prices wc arc giving on all  kinds of outside painting work.  C.G.PIPER     City Decorato  sheep have gained confidence, until  last year and this they have ventured lo.conic down to the ranch.  Al. the time the photograph was  taken, Mr. Thomas says that there  were eighteen ewes and yearlings  prowsing, wilh ten lambs, thc latter as frisky and playful as could  be. Mr. Thomas is of the opinion  that it is far better sport to nurture  the animals or to go "gunning", for  them with a camera than to exterminate them with a rifle.  For some lime past thc department has placed a close season all  the year round on mountain sheep  in the Okanagan. The last of the  animals which were shot cost thc  unlucky sportsman a fine of -$50 and  cosls. This was four years ago.  With Ihe growth of the flocks  around Peniicton and Okanagan  Falls, the game department is hopeful of being able to stock the country with mountain sheep.  Detroit, Mich., spends $20,000 a  year for denial attention to the  teeth of the public school children  of lhal city.
