Barric, author and  playright, on his arrival at New  York a few days ago, from Liverpool, gave this sidelight on thc war  and how it is taken in England:  "The real, ultimate cause of the  war is militarism," said he. " The  nations have been arming themselves, and a-loaded gun always  goes off sooner or later. In my  opinion the war will last a long  time. The issue involved is as  clear as the cause which brought  it about���������������������������it is whether soldiers or  citizens are to rule Europe. So far  as England is concerned, the most  striking feature of the war is the  wav in which the young men of  Britain are enlisting. One hears  the Kaiser generally blamed for the  war. This is somewhat less' than  fair. The Kaiser was.a young man  in 1870, when the war spirit was  strong, and he is merely the product of a system. It is too early to  talk of peace negotiations. No  peace would be lasting nor would it  produce the results which wc all  hope for unless one side is thoroughly beaten."

OCTOBER 8, 1914'  KEEP ON SCRATCHING  Thc merchant who uses thc war as an excuse  J'or his withdrawing his advertising from the  pages of the local paper, is doing the worst thing  possible, not only for his own business but tor thc  general good name of his home town. To thus  openly quit all effort lo get business, and to cut  out of the local paper thc business announcement  of those .in business, is certain lo check business  lhat should come lo the town, and, more than  this, il will be accepted by readers of lhc home  paper in oilier parts as an evidence of weakness  on lhe part of those in business.  No need lo occupy columns advertising for  business Lhat is to be bad only in inches, but there  can be no disputing thc statement that to attempt  lo do business without advertising is courting  disaster and encouraging hard times. Even a  single inch advertisement, made spicy and'earry-  ing with it thc spirit of optimism, on the part of  every firm in business in the town, will lend an  air of progress lo lhc business of lhc community.  Europe is today in thc throes of a stupendous  conflict, the outcome of which must inevitably be  the bringing of every nation involvedto its knees.  There can come no mighty victory out of it for  friend or foe, for each will be worn out,and undone. The lives of millions of men will be  snuffed out and billions of pounds of wealth will  be wasted. Vast territory will be devastated and  thc results ol* years, of peaceful labor will beSUc-  rificed upon lhc altar of the Avar party, of Europe.  The cost of the war to Great Britain alone is  twenty-five millions of dollars a week���������������������������roughly,  four millions a day. Britain's national revenue  has decreased $13,500,000 since the Avar began,  and expenditures have increased $230,000,000  oh account,of thc war.  It is said lo cost Britain $1,000 to make a soldier  out of a raw recruit. It probably costs other nations as much if not more. 'Therefore, every  soldier whose life is given in this war will mean a  direct loss of $1,000 to thc nation under whose  flag he is fighting. This is not estimating thc  worth of the man as a producer, if his life were  spent in some useful occupation. This is estimated at $3,000 by statisticians for the average  man. There is another loss-in connection with  thc death of every soldier���������������������������the cost of killing  him. Thc lowest estimate by men who have gone  into it is $15,000 per man killed.  Tt docs not make any difference.to what nation  or empire the man belongs, the cost of killing  him is thc same, and thc world loses the value of  his life through his death. Every soldier���������������������������and in  lhc present war wc sec the pick of thc nations'  manhood go clown���������������������������is worth the value of thc  average life to lhc community from which he  comes. He may be British, Austrian, German,  French, Belgian, Indian, Servian, Russian or  Turk. Everyone thai goes down means a direct  loss to thc country involved and an indirect loss  to thc world.  All this is made necessary by thc destructive  system under which the world is attempting to  progress. Nations and empires must���������������������������or think  Ihcy must���������������������������build up vast machines .of Avar, with  Illegitimate object that one day thc nation must  destrov a sisler nation, or be destroyed. Ancl this  wc call civilization. Truly, Christianity's civilizing influence upon thc world has not counted for  much.

No need lo sit back and wait till thc war is over.  To do this is certain to lead to regrets, for the  war is here for a long lime. To cease to advertise  will.be. fait  Thc Winnipeg Grain Growers' Guide under  date of Sept. 16th, says: "Thc service rendered to  the public.generally and to the agricultural community in particular by the chartered banks in  Western Canada is one of. vital importance to  every farmer. Many farmers in good standing  know to their cost that thc banks have not generally given the service which it has been expected  Ihcy would render, while for those farmers  whose security consists of little beyond their  character the present banking system is of very  little use. Two years ago thc Bank Act came before parliament for the regular revision'which is  made every ten years. Representatives of the  farmers from both Eastern and Western Canada  were called before thc banking committee lo  recommend improvement. Almost without exception thc suggestions offered by the representatives of the farmers were rejected ancl no attempt whatever was made to ensure better service to thc public. Up to the present time thc  business of banking in Canada has been shrouded  couraged any effort to acquaint.flic general public  with a knowledge of the banking business. The  banking system in Canada is a part of our national fabric "and for the protection and safety of  the .public it should be understood as clearly as  ������������������... i,v. .^c.

One Canadian  just back from England says that conditions of  trade in Britain have assumed Iheir normal aspect, and in I'aeL people were nol so panic-stricken  as Ihey appear in certain parts of Canada.  Keep scratching. Don't close lhe doors on publicity.   It is certain Lo be fatal.  When sheer exhaustion brings a great war lo  a close, the staring, unholy horror of it all becomes apparent���������������������������for the thrill of battle is gone;  lhe marlial bands have ceased lo play; and lhc  pall of death, the mountain weight of debt���������������������������all  show war in so frightful a garb lhat even the  winner must be appalled at his irreparable loss.  WAR IS HELL  This oft-repealed expression is now being fully  realised bv lhe civilized world as.il was never before, realised. "War is hell." And whal is hell?  Hell is lhc outcome of, and punishment for, our  disobedience of the laws of Nature and Nature's  God���������������������������at least, lhal is whal the Good Book tells  us. And yet, lhc whole civilized Christian world  is today war mad���������������������������hell bent.  Bishop Butler once speculated on the possibility of a whole nation going suddenly insane. If  he were alive today he could extend his query and  ask if a half-dozen nations at once might not become crazv.  members of lhc house of commons who have  p7c|)arcd" ITdefihile"scliehic^f ^banking l'cl'oL'm.  Mr. McLean would have some of lhc present  power withdrawn from the banks and placed in  lhe hands of lhe government, and would also provide a large issue of national currency to supply  lhe needs of lhe counlry. When lhe fact is considered, as Mr. McLean explains, that $133,000,-  000 of money which the Canadian people have  deposited-in Canadian banks is now locked up  in Wall street, New York, it indicates that there  is something radically wrong wilh our banking  system. Another large sum is tied up by the  Canadian stock exchange operations. If all this  money could be utilized for legitimate business in  Canada it would go a long way towards casing  the present financial stringency. The banking  business of Canada is today practically a monopoly and thc banks enjoy very valuable privileges  extended lo Ihem by parliament. Naturally such  a radical proposition as that set forth by Mr. McLean will nnd very little favor in banking circles,  where il is considered that the general public  should not meddle in such highly specialized  matters. There is, however, a widespread  opinion that some drastic reforms in our banking  system must be effected, and the more general  the discussion becomes upon the subject the better for the public."  SIT TIGHT ! DON'T ROCK THE BOAT !  That's the watchword today. yThat is.th>; first  duty of every citizen al this lime. That is what  Canada needs���������������������������that is what Enderby needs���������������������������that  is what the Okanagan Valley needs, to keep the  country, the town and the Valley straight and  safe ancl true in their course���������������������������and all they need.  Let us fully realize this. Let.us not look away  into the future when wc shall take steps to get  back the confidence and the prosperity that for  a while arc lost to us. Now is thc opportune  time. Calm confidence and calm thankfulness  arc the first duty.  The consensus of opinion of some of the keenest and most farsceing men in. thc United States  and Canada is that America is entering upon an  era'of prosperity that will completely overshadow  even the great periods of business prosperity that  have already come to these countries. Once the,  European war is over���������������������������and, if it is prolonged,  then before it is over���������������������������wc shall sec thousands of  the middle-class of the countries involved flock  to America in order to get away from thc warlord cursed: countries of Europe. People will  crave for some, place where they might live at  peace with their neighbor. This is impossible in  any country where the war spirit permeates thc  atmosphere, and where, for years, it has been  Tostercel and pampered by the war party.

Enderby, B,C.  as to the ultimate outcome of this  tremendous struggle, for the forces  of the Allies have been so strongly  reinforced as to make it impossible  for the Germans to break through,  and it is now only a matter of days  when they will" have to retreat on  their lines of entrenchment on the  Belgium border or be entirely surrounded by the armies of the Allies, which are each day growing  stronger.  A Paris despatch under date of  Oct. 4th, says: "The Allies repelled two terrific attacks upon  widely separated points in their  front yesterday, each with heavy  losses to the enemy in killed and  wounded. The -first was in the vicinity of Roye, where a' violent engagement has been raging.with undiminished vigor ���������������������������- since Friday.  Repeated and ferocious massed attacks were delivered-by the strongly reinforced right wing of Von  Kluck, in a futile .effort to smash  his.foes, who are trying to bend  back his right wing. All were effectively^ repelled, and the French  claim a decisive victory.  "That this double defeat has* had  a stunning effect upon the invaders  was indicated by a night bulletin,  which stated that.there was no new  activity along the battle front, but  that-the general situation remained  favorable to the Allies.  "Notwithstanding these  reverses  suffered._by.the" Kaiser's army,.the  German line has not been altered  appreciably,  and  it still  holds to  the north, where parallel arms.of  the   two   great   fighting   machines  stretch toward the Belgian border.  ���������������������������That the Allies have been successful in assaults' against the German  right wing is due to a great extent  to  the . massing  of' French  three-  inch guns, and British and French  naval guns-along the line, "especially at Roye.     There Von Kluck had  brought ' to   his   assistance ��������������������������� large  bodies of reinforcements, in many  cases drawn from the centre.'  "The Germans are reported to  have charged desperately against  the Allies. So fierce was the onslaught that the Allies withdraw  a. considerable-distance._.while ..all  and wounded on the battle field.  "The German defeat is declared  in Paris to have been complete. As  a result, officials .'declare.it is unlikely that another defensive movement will be undertaken. But  whether the Germans will now retire to their new lines that have  been established inside the Belgian  frontier,-or whether they will try  to maintain a stubborn defense  along the present lines, only the  next few days can tell."  supertax which were estimated to  show a gain of $32,000,000 for thc  whole year, shows a loss of $2,-  500,000 for the sixth month. The  customs revenue declined $3,500,-  000 in three months.  Happily Great Britain is showing  herself able to' bear a far greater  strain without wincing. Her additional note issue, as expressed in  treasury notes, is only $115,000,000,  while the note circulation of the  Imperial. Bank of Germany has  risen by over $500,000,000.  No More Vodka Allowed  BOTH ARMIES ARE TIRED  Dilating on the splendid accuracy  of the artillery fire, and thc extent  to which the - artillery has been  used in the present war the Daily  Mail correspondent"in France says:  "The infantry has counted for  little in these protracted' operations. On the Allies left wing the  men say that they have nothing to  do, and several have complained  of spending eight days in the trenches without seeing a German. Both  armies are tired. There was one  appalling incident. ThreeS days*  ago 500 Germans were caught in  some "flat fields ' with slopes on  every side. -The French * artillery  took up positions^ ^secretly',", and  ,when the moment came to open fire  the officer in command said: 'Make  me a-cemetery down there.' 'His  order Avas obeyed, .the guns accounting foiy the. grqateCjparUofv the  500, the rifle.fire for the rest. Those  who were, there * say,, that not a  single German escaped.  "It is no wonder that the German  soldiers have nicknamed the big  French guns in the field' artillery  'the black butchers.' Their effect is  terrible. . The. shells they throw explode only ten feet above the  ground and spread their missile  over an area measuring 100 yards  by 30 yards. The shock of their  explosion alone often kills at orice  a whole row of entrenched men."  Petrograd, Oct. 1.���������������������������Minister of  Finance P.Bark, yesterday received  an order to the effect that- the prohibition of the sale of vodka shall  be continued indefinitely after the  war. This order is based principally on the tremendously improved  condition of the country since the  emperor issued an edict prohibiting traffic in-liquor. Visitors arriving from southern Russia* say  there is such a change in that re:  gion that the country is hardly recognizable. . The startling regeneration of the ^peasantry is, in" the  opinion of the Russian authorities,  likely to have an important effect  on the social and economic condi:  tion of Russia.

Interesting Inkling of the Work
Accomplished by Women's Institutes
The Provincial Department of
Argiculture has recently issued in
the form of Bulletin No. 5-1, a hand-
hook showing the excellent work
accomplished in the Province by
thc Women's Institutes. The handbook is filled with valuable articles
compiled by the ladies, and is very
handsomely illustrated by pholo-
half'-lones of a hightprcler.
The handbook contains information that every farmer's wife
should have before her, and a copy
of the hook can he obtained by any
person who will write to the Department of Agriculture for a copy.
Addressing the ladies of the Institute at their meeting in Victoria,
Mr. Scott, Deputy Minister of Agriculture, struck thc 'right note when
he said: "There is no doubt whatever in my mind that there are
many opportunities for women in
the lighter phases of agriculture. I
see some ladies before me, who, I
know, arc getting good financial
returns from the lighter phases of
farming, such as poultry raising,
llower and bulb culture, market
gardening, small fruits, and beekeeping.
"Wc hear a great deal of talk
nowadays about 'Back to the Land',
and it is a most important subject
and one that has to be met sooner
or later and a solution found for
it. People arc flocking to our cities
which arc getting congested, and
the land to a large extent is being
left alone. There must be a reason.
As you know, Ladies,! have farmed
in this Province myself for twenty
years,' and I am very thankful lo
say that I was married during that
time. I know what women have to
undergo on thc farm, but the lot of
the   woman   on   thc   farm   can   be
The Torolno World is doing a
great service for the people of the
Dominion in its campaign against
thc position taken by the big banks
of Canada in the present crisis. It
is to he hoped thai more of the big
dailies and weeklies of Canada will
take up the question, and that the
people will support the press in
���������.carrying forward the campaign for
a better banking system. We have
heard a great deal from time to
time about the great .work, of the
"banks of Canada, their excellence,
and all that, but when the first real
pinch comes, the banks were the
first to exercise that "lack of confidence" wc  hear so  much  about.
Thc hanks are objecting to taking
bank notes, made legal tender by
Parliament, in settlement of bank
balances in' the clearing houses.
The hank managers say this is a
matter of concern lo the banks
only, that lhe public have nothing
to do with it. This is the position
usually taken by thc banking insti-
tilions when thev arc taken on the
.carpel. , To lhis the Toronto World
"Thc World take's direct issue
wilh them on this point, and we
will give all-sufficient reason for
these grounds, viz., that, inasmuch
as the government and parliament
have made bank notes legal tender
throughout the country in every
transaction, what is good for Ihe
counlry ought to be good for the
banks, and thai if the banks ask the
public to take their notes as legal
tender they ought also to lake them
as between themselves. But this is
only a. secondary reason compared
to another one, viz., that parliament
government in putting out a further
issue of 500 millions of national
notes for moving and carrying over
the crops. The Bank of England is
today the national bank of the state.
And in all countries they have these
national banks, and they have
found that they must have them
"to conserve lhe financial and commercial interests of thc country,"
lo use Ihe phrase of the Canadian
"The. real fact is lhat our banks
arc nol anxious to step in between
the legislative aid of parliament
and those who would borrow thc
national notes provided by parliament on the credit of thc nation. If
this i.s so, then wc must have a national bank lo do il."

il is for women lo do without'any
of the conveniences of a town

to cook over a hot stove in the

no reason why you cannot have on
your farms many of the facilities
that you have in the cities. You!

you have not got it to spare, but
