Sunday School at 2.30; service at Mabel Lake school at 2.30.  The report from Ottawa to the effect that a Dominion election will  probably be held this fall seems to  lack the earmarks of authenticity,  and il seems "hardly probable that  . we shall see an election this year.  A. most   interesting - Hallowe'en  .-Concert, consisting of drills,' pantomimes, choruses, songs ancl recitations will be held in the Methodist  Church;.on the evening of" Friday,  "October 30th, beginning at 8 o'clock  " Dr.- Brouse visited Enderby last  Thursday from New Denver, to see  Robert -Johnstone, .who has serious1  lyyfailedffor the past-month or-  more/ Dr. Brouse left the same afternoon for his New Denver hos-  . pital, and took Bob with him.  Rev. C. Reed believes in the necessity of spuds as well as sermons,  and he put a sample of the former  of his own raising in the Walker  Press window display this 'week  that arc a criterion of what he can  do in standardizing the latter.  Mr. Geo. R. Lawes added three  plates of very tine apples to our  window display: Baltimore Reds,  (the variety he won the silver  medal on at Crystal Palace, London), Oregon Spies, and Golden  Russets, from his Enderby Heights  orchard.

Mr. George Brown, one of our  esteemed subscribers, celebrated  the thirtieth anniversary of his  marriage by paying his subscription  this week. We wish Mr. and Mrs.  News from the front since the  of Ostend by the Germans,  and their march upon Calais has  been more encouraging for the Allies. The invaders have not met  with the success they evidently anticipated. The British lleet took  part in the "battle along the channel  from Nieuport to Vladislo, where the.,  heavy guns from the' battleships  held back the invaders.  Il is reported that German submarines operated in conjunction  wilh the army on the channel coast,  but the damage to the British ships  from the torpedoes fired by thc submarines is reported to have been  nil. .'.  It is also reported that the Allies  have driven the Germans out of  Bruges, which,would indicate that  the movement of the German channel army is not so serious as has  been reported, and that, if not already checked, soon'will be."- ,,  that the Kaiser's troops have  reached the neighborhood of Dunkirk, and that the inhabitants are  fleeing from both Dunkirk and  Boulogne.  Brown many of the happiest returns  of lhe day, ancl hope others of our  esteemed subscribers will take the  hint and "do lliou- likewise." Not  necessarily lhal other subscribers  should wail for the thirtieth anniversary, however. Mr. Brown did  not. II just happened thai way. A  good deed lhe quicker done the  belter.        CANADIAN PATRIOTIC FUND  - The Daily Mail's correspondent in  Northern France says: "In competent 'quarters the position of the  Allies'isj regarded as.eminently satisfactory. '. .- *', ���������������������������  , "The enemy's attempt- to 1 brush  past our left wing,to the Straits .of  Dover is'.rapidly .coming to -'ignominious failure. Their line of attack was intended to extend- from  Ostend through Lille to Douai," but  thc steady succession-of defeats,of  the-past ��������������������������� fortnight" has broken'.'the  power of; the" southern half of the  line, and instead of a" united - army,  inarching in unbroken line across  the . Pas-de-Calais and Nord Departments, there is left merely a  series . of detachments. They are  still large, but "wherever .they have  given battle-they have been soundly  beaten.  "Thc Emperor's channel expeditionary force, as it is called here,  has received, to the last man and  rille, what help it could'hope fori  from the withdrawal of troops  in Alsace. The German garrisons  at Brussels, Antwerp and - Bruges  cannot spare another regiment. As  it now-exists it must go-forward,  and it goes to certain destruction."  The  German  War Office  claims  Reinforcements Plentiful  Another report from London says  the fighting is now centring only a  few miles southeast of Ostend,  where the Belgian army, heretofore  reported as . having repulsed the  Germans,on the banks of the "Yser,  is,again in thc thick of the fight,  being credited with bending back  the", German Jine^as far as Roulers,  Belgium, ' 13,' miles northwest of  Courtrai, which, ypoint they arc  holding, according to the latest -reports available, . Torrential rains  have been falling;recently near ihe  scene of the"coast,-fighting, making  the flat country a" sea of mud, and  this,^ wilh thc network of- canals,  makes the > movement of German  guns extremely difficult.

The strength of  the attack then increased, and Ihe  whole Ge'rman line resting on the  coast was forced into full retreat,  and is reported falling back in confusion on Ostend. ,  night-says: "Attacks by the German forces along thc entire front  today were repulsed."  The day has been characterized  by violent attacks by the German  forces along all portions of thc  front,, to the extreme north, where  the Belgian army has held remarkably; also al LaBasse, where', the  German troops have attempted an  offensive movement, ancl also to the  north of Arras, between Peronne  and Albert; at Vanquers-to the.east  of the'Argonncs, and finally on thc  Heights of the Meuse, in the region  of Champlain.  . Paris, Oct. 21.���������������������������An official statement issued by the War Oflice last  The Allies are reported to have  made   progress   eastward   from "a  point south of Arme'nlieres toward  Lille, on a line running roughly.,to  Arras.   The report tells of housc-to-  housc fighting in which the.. Allies  are   advancing.

Biddle, end of Cliff street.  ~Tlfe~Cify Council "met "in" regular  session Monday evening: prescn',  Aldermen Murphy, Dill, Grant and  Robinson, Acting Mayor Murphy in  the chair.  The first matter of business after  disposition of the minutes of the  previous meeting, was the Trade  License By-law. This by-law is  more in thc nature of a simplifying  redraft of Ihe license by-law now  existing, and docs nol change, in  anv wav Ihe rales now charged,  wilh Ihe exception that Section P  in the new by-law provides for thc  levving of a business license of $100  per year on hanking institutions.  Ilereiofore there has been no Ji-  "ec levied on banks by the  Enderby.  ler important clause in the  now passing is lo he foxxnd  in Seclion U. This provides for  Ihe levy "from every express corn-  pan v, gas company, telephone company, electric light company, street  railway or tramway company,  water 'works company, investment  ancl loan society, fur dealer or fur  trader, a sum nol exceeding $20 for  every six months."  Provision is also made in the new  by-law for the levy of $100 for  everv six months on all transient  real'eslale or land agents offering  for sale or transfer lands situate  outside the municipality.  The by-law passed its first reading.  A letter was received from the  municipality of Peachland, making  certain proposals in regard to the  financing of municipalities during  lhe coming year. The suggestions  contained in lhis letter were approved bv the Council, ancl City  Clerk Rosoman was appointed a  delegate wilh one. of the aldermen  to represent the city at lhe municipal convention lo be held at Kamloops, on Oct. 22nd and 23rd.

OCTOBER 22, 1914  ENDERBY'S ANNUAL OUTPUT  Tlie annual output of farm produce from thc  Enderby district is, in.round-figures, 2,000 tons,  at an average value-of $20 per ton. Tlie annual  tonnage of manufactured products���������������������������lumber,  timber, flour, bricks, etc., amounts to something  over 1.6,750 tons, with a market value of $292,200.  These are facts that should not be overlooked  when considering the present and future outlook. There are unusual opportunities here for  men of initiative and foresight, not lo make fortunes in a day, or to sail along "on velvet," but  to establish and develop paying enterprises that  are needed in lhc progress of thc community. It  is only the faint-hearted who decry the district  and long for green fields elsewhere. There arc no  fields greener this those of Enderby and district  for the man of perseverance^1 energy and honesty  of purpose.   Drill, there���������������������������drill!  GETTING BACK TO THE LAND  "KILLNG KRUGER"  If the Kaiser could have been killed with poetry  and bombast he would have died a long time ago,  and thc soldiers of thc Allies would have by this  time been in Berlin. Our newspapers and other  periodicals have been filled with it. And the  feature that seems to loom up most prominently  is that of abuse���������������������������pure hatred���������������������������more childish  than convincing. That England is suffering from  this same complaint is apparent from an article  by Lord Roberts, in thc Hibbert Journal, in  which the great general urges thc people of the  Empire not lo imder-cslimate the power of Germany with ils 66,000,000 people.  "I cannot help thinking," he writes, "that the  great task of subduing that nation will begin  when wc wilh our French, Russian and Belgian  allies have driven the Germans into the heart of  their own counlry.  "May I give a word of caution to my fellow  countrymen against thc unsportsmanlike practice  of abusing one 's enemies. Let us avoid what  Kipling cluring thc Boer war described as 'killing  Krugcr with our mouths.' Let us rather devote  our energies to defeating our focmen by the superior fighting of adequate numbers of British  soldiers in thc open field.  "When Ave read thc charges against the German troops let us remember that gross charges,  absolutely untrue, were brought against us when  fighting in South Africa, but whether the charges  arc. true or not let us keep our hands clean, and  let us fight against thc Germans in such a way as  to earn Ihcn/liking as well as their respect."  GOVERNMENT PURCHASING COMMITTEE  One of thc most important duties of thc Government in the present war crisis has been to act-  as purchasing agent for the British Government.  Britain must have enormous quantities of food  products, and the Canadian Government is securing much of this for the home authorities.  A purchasing committee composed of Hon.  Robert Rogers, chairman; Sir George Foster,  Hon. Frank Cochrane, Hon. J. D. Rcid, Hon. Martin Burrcll, Hon. L. P. Pelletier, and Hon. A. E.  Kemp was appointed. The committee has purchased and shipped 1,200,000 bushels of oats and  10,000 tons of hay. Thc work was carried out  with wonderful rapidity. Within. 30 days.from  receipt ol" instructions, the hay was purchased,  pressed, shipped and landed in France.  Thc committee have also been of the greatest  assistance Ho the British Government in assisting  in purchasing remounts. Thousands of horses  have been purchased and shipped, and this work  is still continuing, and will continue until the war  ceases. There will be a market for every available horse in Canada fit for military service.  Thc work of the committee'is, however, just  beginning. Immense purchases of other supplies  will have to be made. In addition to the purchase  of supplies for Britain, this committee purchased  thc 1,000,000 bags of. flour���������������������������Canada's gift to the  Motherland.  WHAT THE NAVY IS DOING  Local blacksmiths tell us that Ihey have sharpened more plowshares this full than in any two  similar seasons heretofore. This fact, while admittedly of little importance in itself, has a volume of meaning. II is evident lhat thc movement back lo the land has taken hold of the people in this vicinity in deadly earnest. They mean  business. Nothing i.s of more importance lo the  district as a whole, or Lo the individual members  of lhe community. The demand for diversified  farm products will be heavy for some years to  come, and for wheat and oats and olher cereals  that may be grown here so successfully, particularly heavy. There can he no question lhal if the  war continues for some years, or even for lhe  next year or two. the. demand for Hour and other  mill products will impress lhe owners of the Columbia Flouring Mills, al Enderby, wilh the folly  of allowing lhis properly to remain idle. And,  wilh wheal al $1 a bushel, and Ihe demand increasing, we should see many of our large  ranches given over next year more lo lhe growing  of lhis important product.  From many parts of the Province we hear of  hundreds of homesteads being taken up wilhin  lhe past year. In lhc vicinity of Shuswap Lake  more than 400 homesteads have been taken. In  the Mabel Lake Valley and in lhe vicinity of  Trinity Valley, hundreds of settlers are busy on  homesteads recently occupied. Few people realize how rapidly these localities are developing.  In Mabel Lake Valley alone there is a population  of 'M2, wilh a voting population of 136. There  are KM farms occupied, with-1,2.'5(i acres cleared  and 12,076 additional acres settled upon and being cleared.  In the district about Enderby, lhe clearing done  the past two seasons has opened up a counlry  with a vasl acreage of available agricultural land  which hitherto has been lost sight of in thc dense  wooded lands bordering the roadways. All of  this land will soon be producing for the market.  Let no one suppose that because thc British  navy is not getting in contact with the German  fleet and destroying it, it is not accomplishing its  purpose. A special naval writer in the London  Daily Telegraph estimates that thc British navy is  sa-vingJJ54KftOO^OO. a.-weck-f or_the_ British .people  on the price of foodstuffs alone. Then there is a  saving of $60,000,000 a week on thc price of  clothes, manufactured goods, petrol and raw material for British factories. And this writer argues that there is a further saving of $75,000,000  a week to the people of the outer portions of the  Empire.   On lhis poiul he points out:  "Even this calculation lakes no account of  what il is paving to the 15,000,000 of our kith and  kin in Canada, lhe Commonwealth, New Zealand,  South Africa, Newfoundland and the Crown  Colonies, not lo mention the vast population oi  India. The weekly sum which the licet is just  now putting in the pockets of the inhabitants of  the British Empire���������������������������apart from India���������������������������cannot be  less Hum, on thc very lowest basis of calculation,  about ������������������15,000,000.".  BRITAIN'S RESERVE WEALTH  Britain's wonderful reserve wealthy continues  lo surprise even careful observers. The British  investors were asked to supply Belgium with fifty  million dollars, without interest. It was a startling and unusual request. Yet Lloyd George reported that he was offered two hundred millions  for this purpose. Three times already the British  Government has asked investors to take a $75,-  000,000 loan. When the third request was made,  the amount was subscribed three times over .  atlHm TOa Puts it <g>Ufr ������������������aa  Whenever Pa ancl Ma have got to go- to some place swell,  And Pa must wear his evening clothes, you ought to hear him yell.  He starts in grumbling days before, an' says to Ma that he  Can't understand why people want to cause him misery.  "You needn't think I'm goin' to i;ig up for that affair,  If it's a dress suit party," says he, I won't be there."  But Ma, she don't say a word, she's heard lhat talc before.  An' Pa goes on: "If there's anything thai really makes me sore  It is to have lo squeeze myself into that spike-tailed coat,  An' be in agony all night.   That sure does gel my goat.

After being opposed bitterly by the  Allies for two days, the Germans  entered Ostend on Thursday last���������������������������  just a week after taking Antwerp.  The British press is inclined to  class the taking of Ostend with that  of Antwerp. In other words, they  concede it would be a moral and  spectacular victory for the invaders  but of no great strategic significance. Whether this is so, future  events only can show, but the British contention is that with the sea  binding the German right it loses a  weapon heretofore effectively used.  It is pointed out that the chief  success the Germans have attained  have been derived from the tactics  of envelopment. The channel barrier now prevents this, and a der  cisive blow from the Germans, it is  argued, can be delivered only after  the Allies' front has been penetrated  The taking of Ostend by the Germans has straightened out their line  in Belgium, so that it now runs almost due south, connecting with  forces in France  killed is General Sir Ian Hamilton,  commanding one of the divisions  under Sir John French, who, up to  the breaking out of the war was  Inspector of Overseas Forces.

WARWICK  Secretary  against the coast at the north leaves  the Germans without a flank anywhere. With no ilank to turn it  will be necessary for the Allies to  break the line somewhere, and the  fiercest fighting to effect this is now  in progress and likely to continue  for some time along the Belgian  frontier.  Bcports reaching London say the  German imagination has been fired  by the taking of Ostend; and the cry  is not only "On to Calais," but "On  to Boulogne."- What progress, if  any, the Germans have made since  they entered Ostend is not known  at this writing, but. their, next objective-apparently is Dunkirk. Opinion in-England seems to differ,as  to what part the.British fleet will  play, should, the battle continue to  skirt the' coast line. Reports that  the British, dreadnoughts would  baclTup the" Allied forces from the  Straits of Dover, seem to originate  in:.Gcrman sources..  , It is ��������������������������� felt," as the fighting draws  geographically nearer England, that  the enemy has a surprise in store,  in the way of a Zeppelin attack in  conjunction with" the operation of  submarines, which, it is reported,  are to be shipped overland to Ostend. and operated from this point.  London papers point out that the  possibility of^my effective raid being made from Ostend is slight, for  the British mine field will prevent  thc "enemy bringing ships from the  none too spacious harbor at Ostend.

LOOKING-FOR-ZEPPS-  There has been growing evidence  recently of dissatisfaction ,at the  navy's inability to do more in,the  war, says a London dispatch. This  dissatisfaction found expression.in  a bitter attack on ��������������������������� Mr. Winston  Churchill v a few", days ago by the  London-. Post, for. sending marines  and naval volunteers" to-the as-  .sistance of the Belgians,at Antwerp.'  The Post declares", the assistance  was inadequate and. came too late,  and encor.'-aged. they- Belgian authorities,.to ;prpIqng,a,hopeless. defense. It .denounces "Mr. Churchill  for using his position of civil authority to press, his. tactical and  strategic fancies', upon unwilling  experts, and suggests that his colleagues should firmly and definitely tell him th?.*, on no account  must military and naval operation*  Lo conducted or'directed by him.  "he British press is rapidly  reaching the conclusion that the  policy of non-criticism of the authorities is mistaken. The press  has allowed itself to be muzzled, almost without protest, and criticism  has been vigorously ' suppressed,  however, the Times, while wholly  disagreeing with the Post's attitude  ((���������������������������wards MrL Churcliill, applaudsit  Ottawa, Oct. 19.���������������������������In an official  statement, Sir Robert Borden says  it is the intention of the Government to keep under arms till the end  of the war 8,000 men for the defence of Canada, and to have as  well 30,000 men well under training  at all times.  As soon as arms, guns, etc., can be  provided for a force of 10,000 men,  latter force will be despatched to  Great Britain, as the first instalment of the secondary force.  Thereupon additional men will be  enlisted so as to keep the number  under training, continuously -at  30,000. ,     :   ���������������������������       ���������������������������(.  -This process will continue from  time to time. That is to-say,-as  soon as'each force of 10,000 is despatched to Great Britain, another  force of 10,000 will be enlisted to  take its place, and to bring the number in training up-to 30,000. .'  It is anticipated the first force of  10,000 men will be despatched in  December, and thereafter at regular  intervals similar forces will be continuously sent, following as rapidly  as they can^be armed and equipped.  Including the forces, on garrison  and outpost duty, we shall thus  have under arms, or in training  about 40,000 men in Canada, and  until the war, or until the war office  advises,-.a steady stream of7reinforcements will go forward to the  seat of war.

Commencing with Monday of this  week all London licensed houses  and restaurants will be closed for  the sale of intoxicants at 10 o'clock.

This insistent question is asked  wherever Canadians foregather in  London, says a dispatch. Thc answer which lhe Daily Telegraph  makes to a similar question on the  part of Kitchener's new army men  also applies to Canadians.   It says:  "The French are fighting nobly  in defence of their soil, but lhe  power of their arms to assume a  serious offensive movement grows  less day by day. It must be the  British who will lead the Allies inlo  Germany to reap tlie utmost fruits  of victory.

There arc 2,520 miles of railway  in operation, Avith 2,207 miles additional under construction.  Thc cilics and principal towns  are modern in every detail���������������������������electric light, gas, water, sewers, street  cars, parks, paved streets, lire departments, schools, churches, libraries and every convenience.  The Provincial Forestry Department, ably handled, lessens the dangers and the dcslrucliVcness of forest fires.  Deep-sea harbors with ���������������������������natural  dockage arc adjacent lo many of  lhe forests of British Columbia.  The opening of lhe Panama Canal  will put British Columbia timber to  lhe front in the markets of thc  world.  British Columbia is a virgin field  for the manufacture of timber byproducts.  Total stand of merchantable timber in British Columbia is not less  than three hundred billion board  feet.  British   Columbia   ships   lumber  cargoes to numerous ports, includ-  the   United   Kingdom,   South  America,    Mexico,    China,    Japan,  Hawaii, the United States.  KEEP UP THE MOMENTUM  British Columbia's Land Wealth  Agriculturally, it is at the threshold of a great future, it has the  last great stand .of Douglas fir, red  cedar, spruce, and hemlock timber.  Its mines of coal, lead, gold, silver  and copper steadily increase their  output. Il it the centre of lhc halibut, salmon and herring fisheries.  . II i.s lhe big-game hunter's and tiie  angler's Promised Land. Sccnically  il must be seen lo he appreciated,  description cannot do it justice.  Mixed farming, fruit-growing,  vegetable-growing, poultry-raising,  dairying, stock-raising and truck-  gardening arc carried on successfully in the, Province.  British Columbia fruits���������������������������apples,  pears, plums, cherries, apricots,  grapes and peaches���������������������������have won lhe  highest awards at exhibitions in  Great Britain, Eastern Canada and  Ihe Uniled Stales.  British Columbia potatoes won  Ihe Slillwell $1,000 cup in 1912 at  New York Cily, for lhc best collection of potatoes, open lo Ihe continent of America.  British   Columbia   is  rapidly  extending home and foreign markets.  British  Columbia's  fertile  virgin  soils yield heavy crops.  British Columbia has irrigated  and non-irrigated lands for the farmer, as well as pre-emption and  homestead   lands.  British   Columbia   farmers  enjoy  Ti=n=eqiiablc7vear=roun(hcliirialer���������������������������t^o-  exlremes   of   either   cold   or   heat.  Good roads and good schools.  British Columbia is particularly  well   adapted   to  mixed   farming.  British Columbia has wide areas  suitable in every respect for callle-  grazing, horse-raising, and sheep-  ranching.  British Columbia's Department .of  Agriculture spends many hundreds  of thousands of dollars annually for  lhe farmers aud  fruit-growers.  British  Columbia's  Timber  Wealth  British Columbia limber consists  mainly of Douglas lir, wd cedar,  spruce and hemlock���������������������������lir and cedar  being Ihe bulk of the stand.  To lhe limbernian, lhe manufacturer of pulp, paper, etc., and all  manufacturers who use soft woods  as the principal factor in Iheir output, British Columbia offers very  great opportunities.  An abundance of water-power,  readily convertible inlo electric  power, is available near most of  Ihe heaviest slands for the use of  Ihe manufacturer or Ihe lumberman  British Columbia Douglas fir is  famous for heavy construction  work, and for inside finish as well.  British Columbia red cedar is  admittedly  Ihe  finest   for shingles.  Vancouver Island alone can furnish one billion feel of merchantable  timber a year for one hundred  years to come.  Climatic mildness allows of continuous all-year work in lhe logging camps and mills.  One of those pessimistic individuals who arc going about talking  war-time depression was overheard  to say: "Rather than lose money  in my business 1 shall cease spending money on development. I may  not make any money during the  war���������������������������but by great economy in thc  conduct of my affairs I shall at  least avoid  losing any."  And then he mentioned advertising as one of the things he would  do Avithout, until lhe war is over.  "Without going into the merits of  his general policy of retrenchment,  let us see whal happens when such  a man slops advertising. The business he should have goes elsewhere.  It even goes to another town. It is  an actual fact that good, hard cash  that should remain in the home  town with the home merchant is  finding ils way to the coffers of lhe  merchants in neighboring towns.  Those merchants are not slopping  their advertising because of the  war. On the contrary, they arc advertising lhe harder, and in so doing are drawing the cash business  away from Ihe merchant who believes in economizing by stopping  his store news lo the people whose  business he expects and would  cherish.  Advertising is most effective when  continuous. Its main purpose is lo  set up a momentum of reputation,  prestige and good-will, that later on  creates sales.'  If we believe, and experience  compels us to believe, that advertising builds reputation, prestige,  good-will���������������������������what utter folly lo slop  the process of thai reputation build  ing, just because there is a war in  Europe?  An effort is being made by the apple growers of the Okanagan to  bring about a combined Valley exhibit at the National Apple Show lo  be held in Spokane, 'Wash., in November. A request has been sent  out by lhe Central Agency at Vernon to the various fruit unions in  the Valley asking them lo take the  mailer up. The'intention is lo have  each point prepare an exhibit of its  own. Then all the exhibits of the  Valley will be staged together at  Spokane. Whatever prizes arc won  by the Okanagan Valley fruit will  naturally go to lhe union lo which  lhc credit is due, so that, although  the unions are joining in shipping  fruit lo Spokane, the plan is to have  thc exhibits kepi separate.  The West this year will receive  more for its crops and cattle than  last year. Foreign capital will not  come in until after the war, but I  do not know that this is an unmixed evil. I believe legitimate  business, will not suffer on account  of the war and that effective steps  taken by lhc Government will  make a monetary crisis impossible.  The Empire's existence is at stake  and everyone must present a bold  and cheerful front and be prepared  for every sacrifice should the worst  come, and that appears impossible."  After reading the various official  statements from the seats of war  we are inclined to agree with thc  Brooklyn Eagle that each country  supplies a pair of rose-colored spectacles with its news.  OPTIMISTIC ADVICE  Few men know Western Canada  as wcB as Mr. George Bury, vice-  president of the Canadian Pacific  Railway in charge of western lines.
