The taking of Antwerp by the
Germans was the most important
news from the front the past week.
Particulars of lhis evenl are given
oii another page.
, London, Oct. 13.���������Everything
indicates lhal the Germans are preparing a fresh offensive on a large
scale in France. Their armies in
France are being considerably reinforced, probably 50 per cent., and
Iheir immediate objectives arc
probably Verdun and Calais. Minor
Belgian cities ' like Ghent, Bruges
and Ostcnd are being attacked en-
route. "Now or never,"^is "Germany's motto. Having captured
Antwerp, and released from.00,000
to 100,000 of her troops, Germany
must, at all hazards, attempt to
crush thc French and". British
troops, and break downy I heir wall
of steel before the Russian troops
secure a victory on the Vistula.
A Paris despatch says that General Jofl're, ih a report, states positively lhal lhe. Allies .are gelling a
foothold upon the Heights of Aisne,
thereby ; imperilling:" thV.lwhole
German' 'fortified * position"" from
Soissons lo llic-ridge on', thc Ar-
gonne. While -advancing at this
point, the hinge' of the battle line,
the French arc gradually lessening
lhe strain near. Verdun, and are
making^new*'progress ""against the*
Germans in the Vosges. Everywhere
from Belgium to Lorraine, ihe Allied line holds strongly.
The official reports point to the
fact that the Germans generally are
on the defensive, and arc forced to
light for their communications, and
arc iinablc to set in motion a. dangerous oll'ensive.
The City of Ghent is now occupied by lhe Germans, according lo
an Amsterdam despatch.
' It is unofficially reported that thc
Allies arc-massing-rapidly to defend
Oslend and thc coasl cities, and lhat
the Germans, while threatening the
new capital of Belgium, have been
beaten back in several encounters.
The capture of Ostend, il is conceded; would be worth the posses
sion of many Anlwerps to the Germans, so it is taken for granted
they will nol enler the popular resort without lighting every fool of
the way. Great events are said to
depend upon the resull of the battle
now in progress on thc line of Las-
signy and Lens, ancl olher opera-
lions connected therewith, and in
which three German army corps,
released from the seige of Antwerp
will try to take part.
There was no bulletin from the
battle line attAisric on Oct. Mlh,
but ��������� the .statement" from General
Jolfre's headquarters on the 13th
indicated lhat the Allies had gained

On Ihe Russian Frontier
A Pclrogradc despatch gives an
official Russian communication issued recently, which slates that in
view of the importance of the coming battle ancl the changed disposition of the Russian forces, secrecy
is necessary in regard to military
operations. . Therefore the only
possible remark .is that the drawing
in of. the Russian forces from .the
north and south is to meet the attempted Austro-German* advance in
Poland. ��������� The victorious army of
General Renncnkampff, having
driven back the Germans from the
vicinity of Auguslowo as far. as

now in possession of. thc {Russians,
has, accomplished' its purpose"*, 'and

Thc   Russian   troops   are'  acting
exclusively 'on .the;: offensive.'-in. Ppr
land.    The  attempted   advance  of
the  Germans  in -this  counlry  demands   massing  of   the.-Muscovite
forces along lhe- line from  Lublin
to Warsaw and Lcmberg. where the.
indications are that thc Russian offensive    is    already-'in    progress.
Meanwhile no further action is expected  to  Ihe  north  of  Bialystok,
where the Russian army, is* content
with having repulsed' Ihe Germans
as far as necessary.
Russian information is thai, following the taking of Antwerp, the
German army thus set free.will proceed immediately to Ihe Russian
frontier, while in the western
theatre of -.war the Germans will
confine themselves to defensive
tactics.

PRUNING SCHOOL NOTICE
Get your bread tickets at Joe's.
-^The^]}racti,cal==%v.orlc_o������7the^pi:unjL
ing school held in Enderby some
months ago, is too well known to
need explaining at this time. In
the Spring of 1914 thc Horticultural branch of thc Department of
Agriculture conducted twenty-five
of these schools at various points in
the' Province. As these schools
proved to be very helpful to thc
i'ruil growers, the Department has
decided to offer them again.
- The -Department of Agriculture
will provide a competent instructor
and pay his expenses.' Thc .local
administration, of thc pruning
schools will be.'placed'in the hands
of a responsible local body, such as
the Farmers' Institute,--' Ihe Fruit
Growers' Association or the Board
of Trade, who will be responsible
for the guarantee of a minimum of
eight pupils (but not more than 12)
with the proper qualifications, at a
fee of $2 each, to lake ten lessons
of three hours a lesson, the school
extending over five days. Where
the number of pupils in a 'district
justifies, two pruning schools may
be arranged for, in which lhc minimum guarantee will be sixteen pupils, ancl not over 2-1. The local
organization will also provide an
orchard or orchards, where the in-
slructor may hold the pruning
classes, and a hall or room in
which  the  lectures  may  be  held.
Besides the actual practice in the
orchard, of which thc course will
consist chiclly, where the pupils
will prune trees under the supervision of the instructor, there will
be lectures on the theory of pruning
which will include talks on pruning
as related to the formation of fruit
buds, and to plant growth, also the
subject of top-grafting undesirable
varieties will be dealt wilh, along
with many olher points of interest.
The pupils will provide their
own pruning tools, the necessary
tools being a pair of pruning shears
a saw, and a pocket whetslone. A
pruning  pole  and   a  light  ladder
may also
trees.

The step from the Enderby

big one, bolh in miles and importance, ancl Mr. Taylor is to be
congratulated on getting the appointment.
In the years that have passed
since the establishment, of thc Enderby branch. Mr. Taylor has seen
the district advance in. a very satisfactory measure, and iii all
movements looking to the development of Enderby'and'district-Mr.
Taylor has taken an active, wholehearted interest. In business circles he will be greatly missed, and
in social circles he and Mrs. Taylor
have occupied a position that can
nol soon be refilled. THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday, October 15,   1914  Lloyd George has given the banks the credit of the  national treasury, that is, the security of the whole  nation for their operations. But obviously the  matter cannot rest there. If the banks are only  institutions for making profits for their shareholders in times of prosperity, and close their  purses when the pinch comes, only opening them  on our collective security, it is clear that the function of the State in the sphere of finance is paramount and that it must exercise that function  when times are good as wellas when times are bad.'

OCTOBER 15, 1914  PROSPECTS OF AERIAL ATTACK  With the taking of Antwerp by the Germans the  war is brought very close to the door of England.  -What the next step will be remains to be seen. It  is reported that the Germans will attempt to attack England, with Antwerp as a base to work  from. Whether they will be able to make an attack, or a series of attacks, successfully will depend  upon Britain's aerial fleet. Britain has no airships  of the dirigible type to compare with the naval  Zeppelins. She has, however, a very large number of gun-carrying aeroplanes which will no  doubt be able to handle thecZeppelins���������������������������in daytime.  The real danger from the Zeppelins will be" at  night, and against this the War Office has taken  all possible defensive measures.  There is no doubt that Germany will attempt to  make use of her submarines, her naval ships and  aerial fleet in conjunction. This will give the  British navy the opportunity long waited for. It  is just possible, if not probable, that the enemy  has a surprise for us in this connection as he has  had for us on the land, but we believe Britain will  .bring on a surprise_or_two_as well.  A. G. Gardiner, in the Daily News and Leader,  London, speaking of the peril of the secret diplomacy of Europe, says: "We have been like children  playing on the top of a volcano. We have busied  ourselves with schemes of social reconstruction and  have flattered ourselves that we were making this  land a little better, a little happier, a little more  just for the people who dwell in it. We knew no  more of what was going on inside the volcano than  if we were dwelling in Mars. But it was there  that our fate was being fashioned by a small body  of diplomatists and officials whose very names are  unknown to the general public, who cannot be  heard in public, or examined in public, or dismissed  by the public. We have discovered that with all  our constitutional fights, the greatest interest of  this country is as much- outside our control as the  revolutions of the solar system.  ' 'Bagehot long ago commented on the astounding  anomaly that Parliament, which has control over  laws, has no power in the making of war or peace  or of treaties upon which the whole future of the  State may rest. Palmerston carried the doctrine  so far as to say that it was not necessary even to  communicate with Parliament on these things, and  it was not until three weeks ago that Parliament  and the British , public were informed that for  seven years this country had been discussing joint  military and naval action with France. I say  nothing as to the policy which led to these discussions. It may have been right and necessary.  History will say. But can Europe again tolerate  the appalling peril of secret diplomacy ? Can we  again play about on the deck with the sails and  the compasses, making our little laws and imagining we are self-governing while down in the hold  there is a powder magazine and a lighted match,  the very existence of which we are not permitted  to know? Secret diplomacy belongs to the traditions of personal and autocratic government. It  has no place in a democratic world, and the example ol the United States must become the model  of the civilized world on this, vital matter if Europe  is to be free from the menace in the future."  STICK   TO   ONE   BUSH  When we boys were little shavers father used to make us go  In thc berry-pickin' season where the black-caps used, to grow;  With our pails full of luncheon we would start at break of day,  And lill milkin' lime at evenin' in the old woodlot we'd stay;  1 remember father's sayin', "Now, when you start in lo pick,"  If you wanl lo fill your pail up lo the brim, an' fill it quick,  Git a bush an' freeze right lo it, lill you've stripped it clean an' bare,  Don't go rangin' through lhe bushes, pickin' here an' pickin' there;  "i'ain'l thc chap who picks a little from each bush there is in sight,  Who will have Ihe largest pailful when we leave thc patch to-night,  Hut the boy who picks a bush out, an' slicks to il, will not fail  In lhe end, to have lhc biggest lot of berries in his pail."  Since my boyhood days .I've noticed often, time an' time again,  That ol' sayin' of my father's is as true today as then.  You will never get the best things of this life unless you slay  Anchored lo a single purpose, let it be whalc'er il may;  Don't go slragglin' through life's pasture tryin' this an' tryin' thai,  All the while not really, knowin' where, or why, or whal you're at;  Find a bush an' stay right with il, don't be drawn aside, to go  Where thc pickin' looks more pleasant 'cause the berries thicker grow;  Don't have irons in the fire that you have no time to tend,  For you'll surely burn your fingers an' regret it in thc end.  Stick right lo one honest purpose, an' you'll find you'll seldom fail  To be pretty sure of getting all the berries in your pail.  HELPING THE HELPLESS  The London Times argues that the fall of Antwerp will do the German campaign little good beyond giving the German public a much-needed  heartening. On the other had, a London dispatch  says: "The moral effect of the fall of Antwerp is  not minimized in England. The city was called  by Napoleon, "A pistol pointing at the heart of  England." The seaport long has been one of the  greatest in Europe, resembling in. a sense Liverpool and-the-River-Mersey.- It-is- estimatedhere  that there are no fewer than 400,000 Germans in  Belgium today.'/  THE STATE AS A BANKER  A writer in the London News and Daily Leader,  discussing generally the reforms that are likely  to come as the result of the European conflict,  says of banks and banking: "Take the question  of finance. Walter Besant said long ago that the  art of banking consisted in taking other people's  money and using it for your own profit. In a general way we know that the satire was not very  extravagant, but the system worked ancl there  seemed no real conflict between finance which is  the symbol and commerce which is the reality.  "But the time of stress has brought a swift disillusion. It is found that the private control of  the sources of money supply may have disastrous  effects upon industry in a crisis���������������������������that just when  money is most needed for trade it may be withheld for privat3 and even selfish reasons. Many  of the banks have behaved well, and others have  behaved badly; but the discovery that any of them  could hoard not their own money, but other people's money, and keep it out of use at a moment  when its use was the most urgent need of society  has shown that the present financial system cannot remain unreformed. Already the State has  had to come to the relief of the situation.     Mr.  Nothing coming from England speaks so truly  of the great mother heart of Britain as that written  between the lines of a private letter we were privileged to see a few days ago. The writer was telling of the arrival in England of' hundreds of refugee families of war-wrecked Belgium. She told  how they were being fed, housed, clothed and  cared for by the people of England.. In every little community the churches and other public and  fraternal bodies are pledging themselves to provide  house, water, light and furnishings for one, two,  three or whatever number of Belgian families they  feel capable of handling, not for a single month  or a single year, but until the war is over and the  unfortunates are permitted to return to their own  homes.

This  gun weighs 27,000,000 tons, and the  muzzle is so large that the Kaiser  drove his limousine down the barrel. A troop of artillery went  through, and a Zeppelin also Hew  down the gun from one end to the  other.  It fires a projectile that weighs  23,000,000 tons.

Antwerp, the last and strongest  ciladel of Belgium, was captured  by the Germans on Friday lasl, after a week of hard fighting. Thc  outer ring of l'orls were taken on  Tuesday, and on Wednesday morning the bombardment of lhc cily  commenced. The rain of shells  continued all of Wednesday and  Thursday and throughout Thursday night. All of lhc civiling population lhat could gel away evacuated Thursday, and on Friday  morning the war flag was hauled  down and- thc white Hag run up.  The Belgian Government and,  most of the Belgian soldiers escaped to Oslcnd.  Because of the chaotic conditions  during the last few days of the  bombardment of the beleagured  city and the interruption of telegraph communication^ there was  much delay in the transmission of  news from Antwerp to England.  Nevertheless, England had been expecting and discounting the fall of  the last Belgian .position, and the  English press* is now speculating  on what, strategic use the Germans  will make of it how that the city  is in their hands.  The battle line in France is now  so long-^-forming a rough*.curve of  350 miles���������������������������from 'Lorraine to the  Belgian frontier���������������������������that the battle of  tlie Aisne and the operations before Antwerp have -become so  closely knitted as to be from the  military point of view, inseparable.  The hope of the Allies to deliver  a crushing blow against the German  general, Von Kluck, before, the occupation of Antwerp by the enemy  is now, of course,, a thing of the  past.. The boast of. the French  'commander that -he could take the  left wing of Von Kluck's.army���������������������������'in a  single dayvif, he A,vas."prepared to  put his"men to"it,'does hof'seem to  have materialized, and there has  been severe fighting on the left and  right wings for more'"than'-a week.  Despatches, attempting to analyze  the German plan of campaign,.with  Antwerp ' in' their hands, declare  the German purpose is to sweep  over northern France with the object of taking -possession of the  channel ports and thus bring the  warfare nearer-England. It is said  in London that German newspapers  are predicting the use of Antwerp  as a base of . operations against  England.  Of one thing there is no doubt,  Antwerp^sulTercd terribly from the  bombardment and the losses among  the civilian population have been  heavy. The city was crowded, not  only with its normal population of  more than 300,000 persons but  with other thousands- who had  sought refuge on account of the  Gcrmari^invasion" TV~~7   "  these men to the right wing near  the French-Belgian frontier, which  thc Allies have sorely pressed.  The first admission lhat lhe British participated in the defense of  Antwerp is contained in an Admiralty announcement that three naval  brigades, wilh heavy guns, had been  sent there during the last -week of  lhe German attack. The announcement adds that in thc retreat  from Antwerp two of the brigades  reached Oslend safely. . Thc other  was cut oil' to tlie north of Lokcren  (a town in East Flanders, twelve  miles northeast of Ghent) and 2,000  of the men interned in Holland,  The retreat of the main Belgian  army was accomplished successfully, but that part of the army is interned in Holland with the British  is evident from the fact that telegraphic orders have be,en sent to  several "retired--"officers of the  Dutch army to take charge of, the  camps where Belgian and British  soldiers who crossed the frontier  are quartered.  The Secretary of the Admiralty  makes the following announcement  in relation to" the.engagement: "In  response to an appeal by the Belgian Government, a marine brigade  and two naval brigades, together  with some heavy guns manned by  a detachment of- the Royal Navy,  the whole under^command-of General. Paris, R.M.Ai, were sent by  His Majesty's Government to. participate, in the defense of Antwerp  during the last week of the attack.  f'Until the night of "\londay last,  October 5th, the Belgian army and  the marine brigades successfully  defended the line -ofythe Nethc  River, but early on Tuesday morning the Belgian.forceS"On������������������the'right  of Marliiiespe're; werey"forced'by a'  heavy.

T'io  Pelgian forces defending this poiii:  fought with great determination,  but were gradually pressed back  by numbers.  "in these circumstances the Bal-  Mi.m and British military authorities in Antwerp decided to evacuate the city. Thc British offered 10  lo cover the retreat, but General de  Guise desired thai they should,  leave before thc lasl division of the  Belgian army.

THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday, October 15,   1914  Patriotic Duty of Every Farmer to  Increase the Food Supply of Canada  land   if   possible  Hon. Martin Burrcll has been energetically taking up lhe question  of the country's food supply during  lhc present crisis, and has been  studying the problem from Ihe  viewpoint of whal Canada can do  to hell) i'ecd the Empire. As the  present indications are lhal lhe  war will be long drawn-out,- Hie  question of an adequate food supply will prove lo be almost as vital  as lhat of men, and Mr. Burrell has  been taking up the question with  Ihe same energy Col. Sam Hughes  has mobilized Canada's army.  Mr. Bun-ell, as a result of his  study of the situation, has made rin  appeal lo lhe farmers of Canf.d i On  patriotic as well as business ground  lo increase, this coming year, their  production of foodstuffs, in addition, the Minister is doing everything possible to assist the farmers,  and a circular has been issued explaining-the best ways of increasing acreage and production for lhis  coming season.  The Minister of Agriculture, in  an interview, points oul lhal approximately twenty million mon  have been mobilized in. Europe,  and that a large proportion of these  have been .drawn from the farms.  Even in neutral countries Ia.-ge  numbers have been called from ihe!  land lo be ready for emergencies.  Mr. Burreil makes lhe following  stirring appeal lo lhc farmers of  Canada to do their duty by the Empire:  "The area lo be sown to wheat  and rye this fall in Europe will be  seriously reduced. Should the war  continue into the summer of next  year the food production in Euro no  cannot approach that of normal  years.    Looking at the situation in  G.    Pack   the  after harrowing.  < 7. Until the freeze-up comes let  ���������������������������every effort be directed toward getting the fields into shape. Hours  on the ground now will almost  certainly save days next spring.

Get the seed wheal ready, (a)  .clean thoroughly, (b) lest carefully  for   germination,   (c)   bag   neatly,  "and (d) store in dry quarters.  2. Get the best variety possible.  Marquis is the best. Gel it if you  can.  3. Pul machines for spring  work inlo good shape.  4. Gel thc horses right. Good  feed and a little exercise in March  and early April mean greater endurance and quicker work when  seeding begins.  5. Make arrangements to treat  your feed for smut, blueslone and  formalin needed.  Spring  Work  1. Get on to thc land early.  2. Do thc work well at seeding  time. ' Cultivating and discing, especially in the case of stubble land,  always means bigger and better  crops.  3. Treat the wheat for smut before sowing, bluestone or formalin.  4. ' Such stubble land "as it was  nol possible to plough in the fall  should be well cultivated or thoroughly disced before seeding, and  as early as possible in the spring.  and broken, to a worse condition  than that which they tried to leave.'  ENDERBY   ALFALFA   PRODUCTS  Since moving to Iheir new quarters in the old Farmers' Exchange  building, on the railway just north  of Regent street, lhe Enderby  Alfalfa Products Company has continued its improvements in connection with its process of grinding  alfalfa inlo meal, and lhe output of  the mill today is as good as lhc best.  The demand for alfalfa meal is also  increasing satisfactorily, and the"  outlook is in every way encouraging.    Particularly among stockmen  SOME DAY WE'LL KNOW  London, Oct. 14.���������������������������News that a  British naval brigade participated  in the defense of Antwerp has been  received here with general satisfaction, it being strongly felt that wc  honorably owed Belgium some military reinforcements on her lighting  front. Some day we shall know  why the naval assistance granted  was not of such strength as to be  effective.  Archibald Hurd, the Telegraph's  naval expert, says, concerning Ant-  is this meal becoming popular.   Il  wcrp:    "If the taking of Antwerp  A VALUABLE SUGGESTION  In a recent number of the Westminster Hall Magazine, a high-class  monthly   published   at   Vancouver,  appears a splendid article on thc  even its most favorable light, there subject of Hindu immigration from  will be, in 1915, a demand for food  that thc world will find great dit'i-  culty" in supplying.

"Wc are sending  our surplus now.    AVc should prepare   for   the   larger  surplus   next  year.    The Government is strongly  impressed  with  thc desirability of  increasing the crop acreage in Canada.    Growers of fall wheat should  endeavor lo increase Iheir sowing.]  Thc    Canadian    farmer,   earnestly |  bending all his energies to increase  thc  food  supply  Tor thc Britisher  al home and the British soldiers, at  the front, i.s doing his share in lhc  gigiantic struggle of the Empire.  "Apart from the practical certainly that wheat and other foods  next year will yield large financial  returns lo lhc producer, there is  thc great fact thai the Canadian  Jil1\IlLtL,'s������������������__>v'*'<'>, by extra effort, en  large Iheir wheal and olher crop  acreages and increase their live  stock probucls, will be doing the  best thing possible to strengthen  Ihe Empire in its day of trial."  In urging upon the western  farmers lo increase their acreage  and produclion, lhe following practical suggestions are .made by the  Department of Agriculture. These  suggestions have been embodied  in a circular which has been given  the widest  publicity:  On the Summer Fallow  1. Gel lhe summer fallow inlo  good shape.  2. Let it be ready for the seeder  Ihe moment |he snow goes next  spring.  3.

In  this  article  a  suggestion  is  given  that is worth  consideration.    Il is  a suggestion on  Oriental  immigration to Canada, and the suggestion,  by thc way, comes from a Japanese  source.       The   suggestion   is   that  only five per cent of the number of  naturalized members of any race be  admitted in any one year.   If conditions    of    naturalization,    it    is  pointed oul, were made reasonably  high, it would be some years before  any considerable number from any  Oriental   counlry   could   attain lo  citizenship, and  thus these people  .could be practically excluded until  Iheir     civilization     approximated  ours more nearly, without any special singling of Ihem oul by special  enactment,   which   is   what   they  -feel-keenly.  ������������������������������������������������������   "Al lhe same time," the writer  argu.es, "those whom wc now have  would be eager lo approximate as  rapidly as possible to our standards  and thus one of lhe worst objec-  lions lo their presence would be  removed. While this regulation  would limit the number of Orientals coming lo us lo a negligible  quantity and also improve the  quality, il would,nol limit the members of the British race at all and  would permit of the coming of  very large numbers of all northern  nations of Europe who have many  representatives among our citizenship. Al thc same time it would  practically shut out Turks, Armenians and many other half-while  races who are almost as unassimil-  able as those described as Oriental.  II is a crime lo allow poor people  lo break up Iheir old home and  Iheir old ties, and spend their all to  pay Iheir way across Ihe ocean  only  to  be  turned  back penniless  pi     ������������������������������������������������������������������������    ������������������������������������������������������      ������������������������������������������������������      ��������������������������� ������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������^^���������������������������irw������������������  is largely replacing bran ancl shorts  in the feeding.

Our prestige  is one of our assets, and this Antwerp incident will, it may be  feared, not add to it, though the  officers and men engaged apparently displayed greatest gallantry.
