R. E. Best shipped a carload of  slock and household effects to Medicine Valley this week, and followed  himself on Monday.   It is Mr. Best's  In the war zone this week no  great victory has been won by the  Allies or the enemy, but the coastwise march of the Germans upon  Calais has been effectually checked.  The Germans fought most desperately and the holding of lhc ground  by the Allies was at tremendous  loss in killed and wounded. The  cream of the British army was engaged in thc conilict. The importance, of. this engagement between  Nieuport and Dixmude may be  judged when it leaks out that President Poincare, Minister Millerand  and General Joffre of France, and  Earl'Kitchener were in the vicinity  of hostilities in conference with the  King of Belgium at the time.  Despatches now indicate that the  Germans have withdrawn from the  Yser, where their position was  made untenable by the flooding'of  the district by the Allies/ and it is  apparent that -the enemy is preparing.to attempt to cut a way'through  to Calais at'a point farther inland.  Much "activity on the part of. the  German mobile columns is reported  from Belgium, says a-despatch/and  there is ."evidence that thc invaders  have not exhausted all lhe resources  -which are being broughrtobear-in  the. campaign upon Calais: .-'The  German assault "at,."Ypres isjiclieved  Jby London: observers JLp'_have. been,  crushed "decisively,' at Y"tcrrible cost  to the British army, which has apparently suffered as severely as did  the Belgian forces.     ���������������������������.      . .

Our.leading soldiers,  he adds, now assert that lhe worst  is passed, the''���������������������������great weight of" the  German  onrush  having been. successfully   met.    Every - day   from  now on adds to the Allies' strength  and. to the enemy's weakness.   The  Continental commanders of the Allies say thai, barring accidents,'we  should succeed ih reoccupying the  whole of Belgium by the end of  Febi'uary.  Many politicians and economists,  hc"sayspare"xonfiden tHhaflh e^war  will be over within six months.  They calculate upon the collapse of  German resistance  so  apparently   the   father  of  this  thought that it would be foolhardy  to base any confidence upon il.  Military circles do nol share this  view, holding that wilh lhc besl  fortune wc must be prepared in the  spring to hold Belgium, with an  army minimum of at least 800,000  strong and conduct an aggressive  war throughout the summer, forcing the Germans to make peace on  the approach of the coining winter.  -According to,-present -prospects,  this writer says, Germany should,  by "March,-be fighting on her own  s"oil,'-whcre the defensive fortifications are. amazingly .complete.

BURN   BAXTER'S  BEST BIRCH.  Leave orders at Dill Bros.  "Thev're coming through to lake  me away tomorrow morning," calmly whispered old Mr. Bailey to 'Bob'  who was silling by his bedside Sunday evening. And sure enough, just  as -the-sun was peeping over-the  hills into thc Valley, they came.  Calm and peaceful as a child asleep  in its mother's arms "Dad" Bailey  slept away. Thus was brought to  an end a life of service to his fellows that was an inspiration to all  who knew lhat unassuming grand  old man���������������������������"Dad." We do not see  many men of the lypc.of'Mr. Bailey.  He was one of those fine old English gentlemen, and his w-hole life  stood for all that is implied in the  word. Fidelily'was his watchword,  and if he had another it was Kindness. There was nothing small  about Mr. Bailey. He was a resident of Enderby for 28 years; He  was not a-church pillar���������������������������he just  lived his Christianity. The dart of  scandal never passed his lips, and  when he spoke of another it was  always of the good in him, or her.  Old timer's of Enderby district  will miss the familiar smile and the  cheery word he ever-was ready to  give, and life will not be just thc  same without him.  Two years ago Mrs. Bailey passed  away, and wilh her went lhc spark  lhat made life worlh while for her  male. Since her . passing,- Mr.  Bailcv started on lhe down-hill,  finally arriving at his destination  wilh every faculty of mind and  bodv consecrated to lhe last to the  service of others, al thc age of 71.  Seven children are left to mourn  his departure: Mrs. Alex Campbell,  and Constable R. N. Bailey, Enderby; Mrs. Geo. Burns, Beaverdale, B.  C.; Mrs. J. H.

Miss Hazel Stevens gave a  splendid reading in her inimitable  pleasing manner, and the little girls  gave   one   number,   "The   Quaking  Quakers,'  which was really a gem.  were good, but the credit  in this all  for giving lhis number its finish and  snap must-be given to-little-Alice  Sowden. The unconscious charm  and grace of this little body, in  every number in which she apr  pcarcd was thc'pleasing surprise of  lhe evening.

THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday, November 5,   1914  THE ENDERBY PRESS  AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  years there never has been the question of the  safety of Canada raised, and her powerful neighbor has never given the slightest reason at any  lime for such a question being raised. But let us  suppose cither the United States or Canada or  Mexico had started years ago to erect forts along  the borders of these nations, what would have  been the outcome? At once the other would have  followed suit, and, no doubt, long before this  time we should have been shooting at each other.  Indicative of the spirit of the people where the  war lords have not had them in their grasp for  centuries, wc have but to turn from the battlefields of Belgium to-the shores of Canada and tlie  United Stales. In the former we sec, quite naturally, regiments of volunteer recruits assembling  to be sent to England lo aid thc Motherland in her  lime of stress. But, of far greater importance,  wc see a tremendous work in progress in lhc  gathering of money and goods to go lo thc  stricken countries for thc relief of thc sick and  wounded and thc needy. Thc same spirit of  helpfulness is evidenced in the great work being  performed on thc battlefields by thc corps of Red  Cross workers which have gone from the United  Slates. Another evidence of- lhis helpful spirit���������������������������  this spirit of kinship, which must come to all as  a result of lite war we are now engaged in���������������������������is to  be found in thc movement which has taken hold  of the children of thc United States. The scheme  is backed by eighty American newspapers, and  has for ils object the sending of a shipload of  Christmas presents for thc children rendered  fatherless by thc war. Four million Methodist  Sunday School children of America arc working  for tlie scheme, and thc Federation of Catholic  Societies, with a membership of three millions,  arc giving their support.' Texas will send one  million 1-4-pound packages of mils, and some of  lhc prisoners in the Illinois Stale Penitentiary arc  a I work making gifts.  Published  every   Thursday at    Enderby,   B.

NOVEMBER 5, 1914  ALL THE WORLD 'S AKIN  Never in thc world's history has anything like  this been  witnessed before.    Wc arc living in  strenuous   limes���������������������������davs   fraught   with the most  wonderful opportunities for making life worlh  while���������������������������for living in lhc true spirit of Christian,  sane service.    Too long has Christianity���������������������������whal  wc know as Christianity���������������������������feasted upon, the spirit  of selfishness���������������������������living on a dogmatic belief thai  belied the life of ils founder.      Il required lhis  world war to bring all Christendom to its senses.  Nothing short of thc greatest catastrophe civilization has ever known could have sulliccd.   By  degrees civilization has drifted into lhc vortex of  hell, and there could be but one ending.   Wc have  prided ourselves upon our nuich psalm singing  and ceaseless praying, and loudly have wc called  upon the God of the universe lo be on our side���������������������������  thinking little and caring less about whether wc  arc on God's side.   The caldron ol" hell is- now in  (lames, and wc are feeding lhc bravest and best  of our manhood into it.   And all thc while each  side is beseeching the God of'War to be with it  and aid it lo come out of the conflict victorious.  "^WltarhVusT conic ourWiHil 1"?"^'T'lhTAIlics"  shall be���������������������������must be victorious!" we cry.   So be it.  But what then? . Victorious lo go right on in'lhc  same  old   rut  of superficiality���������������������������hell  bent,  and  always with God "on our side ? "  I Icre and there we see evidences of thc true  spirit asserting itself. The feeling of kinship is  coming lo the surface in most unexpected places  and in heart-touching ways. The spirit of war���������������������������  -of murder���������������������������is unnatural and impraiseworlhy.  We endeavor to hide ils brutality under the cloak  of patriotism, and yet all the while we know in  our own hearts lhal. (here can be none of goodness  in il. And we feel that oul of il must come a  higher, saner love of country and love of mankind���������������������������a truer conception of humanity and our  duty man to man.  F.urope has been lhc ruling power of the world.  And lime and lime again it has proven its unfitness. Ancient customs and ancient beliefs have  held that pari of the world enthralled for ages,  and all of its progress has been tethered to the  Mend of war���������������������������the power of might. Along the  borders ol" every European nation are strings of  powerful forts lhal are supposed to guard one  nation against the encroachments of the other.  Millions of men and billions ol* wealth arc required to keep each nation safe within its borders  and fi-ee from invasion. This is one of thc fool  notions handed down lo posterity by our barbaric  forefathers. The world is suffering today because of the perpetuation of this idea.  If Europe would learn from the west, lei her  look lo Canada and Ihe United Stales, where for  more than a century two nations have, existed side  by side, with thousands of miles of border, along  which not a gun has been placed nor a fort erected. Only here and there customs officers arc  placed for Ihe purpose ol" collecting such fees as  one friendlv nation imposes against the importation of goods from another.       In all these  Some of those war correspondents think it of  sufficient importance to cable across thc Atlantic  such guff as this: "It is heartbreaking to know so  much and to be able to tell so little." If those war  correspondents could bui realize it, it might be as  well lo keep back what little they do let out, for  it is hardly in print over here before the official  announcements of facts prove the correspondents do not know anything about it.  HIGH COST OF LIVING BUGABOO  Bight in the midst of this hue and cry about the  high cost of living and war prices, comes the voice  of one crying in lhc wilderness. A'writer in the  Farm Journal disposes of thc bugaboo in this  fashion:  In regard lo the high cost of living thai is being discussed,.! should like lo sec figures proving lhat it costs  more to live now than il did, for instance, ten, fifteen,  twenty, twenty-live or thirty years ago, if people would  live the same as they did then.   1 have kepi account of  all my incomes and expenditures since away back in  the  7'0's, and  my accounts do  not show any appreciable difference.    There arc a few things that cost  more just now than they did some years ago, meat for  instance; but there are others that are cheaper now  than they were before.   1 was vividly reminded of thai  when I read your remarks about the price of binders.  If $125 i.s considered too high a price, what would the  farmers have thought, for instance, thirty years ago if  they had been offered binders at that price?   I get today a watch for $;") that would have cost me $20 in  1885.    This is only an example.    Newspapers, books,  clothing, and a whole lot of olher things cost no more  today than they ever did.   It does not cost any more to  travel.   Tea, spices, sail, cakes, pies, fruit, could nol  be bought any cheaper ten or thirty years ago than.today.   Amusements are, if anything, cheaper now than  ever before.    It costs more to eat in  restaurants or  live in hotels, but the, reason  for lhat i.s plainly the  higher land values causing higher rents, and the higher  Avttgijs-!

Memory has been jocularly described  as "the thing we forget with." Out of sight is  apt to be out of mind.  An advertiser who relies on the memory of the  public leans on a broken reed. Thc absence of its  advertising from thc newspapers has been the beginning of the end of many a firm. "Thc present  suitor hath ever thc advantage over the absent ���������������������������  lover."  A business that has achieved its magnitude or  strength as the result of faithful advertising plays  itself false if it suspends or ceases its advertising,  on thc grounds of economy. It is poor business  vision which fails to see the principal feeder of  business, and fatal judgment which cuts it off or  interrupts its How. Economies may be warranted  but they bad better be effected in any other de-  parlment than in the sales department���������������������������the department of revenue. Any course which shoves  your customer back from you or hides you from  your customer, s ruinous. The man with the  money needs to be constantly sought.

It gives us something to  think about more in the line of  progress, and less in the line of  slaughter than most of that which  is written on the war.  "Nothing in the present terrible  European situation is so depressing  as thc evidence it affords of the  fearful    contrast    between    Christianity and Jesus Christ. It amounts  to nothing more or less than the  breakdown of the religion of Western civilization.    It is frightful to  see actually before us the fact, that'  all   the  art,  learning,  knowledge,  science and religion of the Western  world have not been equal to the  task of holding the barbarous instincts of the animal man in check  and is leading human beings into  the   shambles   of   slaughter   in   a  manner   in    which    no    civilized  country on the globe would permit  lower  animals to  be killed.    The  battle-fields of   Europe   today are  proving conclusively that the vast  increment   of   human   intellectual  force in the recent centuries of history has been.applied almost entirely   to"' the   perfecting   of   the  agencies of destruction.   In a word,  civilization in Europe has practically broken  down.    That is the  plain meaning of the European war  ' "One of the most futile of performances is the endeavor to fix tne  blame here or there in this vast  catastrophe.   To say that one man  or. one nation did it, is .worse than  foolish.    No single man, however  called  the  War' Lord - of  Europe,  could possibly do this.   No single  nation, however cursed with militarism,-could do it.* AIL Europe-is  an armed camp.. What the army is  to Germany, the navy is to England.  France arid; Russia arid Austria as  ���������������������������well as'the minor countries have all  Been in the leash of the vicious and  immoral .theory, that vast preparations forythe business of killing can  yiit any.?tihiej-or-4anywhere prevent  " -Syar.    As a inatter of fact, it has  been   a  reversion   to  the  mining  camp theory of existence .without  its, virtues..  Old time miners will  tell'you< that, generally speaking, in  the. mining camps  of -49-an  unarmed man was.usually safe.   The  only man who had to draw and  draw  quickly  was  the  man  who  carried a gun.  ' "But there is a remoter and much  more powerful cause of all this  which has. not generally been  noticed because it has warped the  view of the very people- who are  supposed to hate war most. This  the vast body of Christian people  themselves. The fact that Christianity has been until very recently  -and^stilLis^in=_most=.quar_ters_a_re^  ligion of theological dogma instead  of practical righteousness lies at  the base of the downfall of European civilization.  "When the Council of Nicaea in  the year 325 A.D. established Christianity on the basis of dogma, there  was inflicted upon the Christian religion the greatest blow it has ever  sustained. That council with its  outflowing results fixed the attention of the Christian church and its  leadership upon dogmatic consideration's as the test of vital Christianity rather than upon practical  righteousness as emphasized by  Jesus Christ himself and made absolutely, clear on every page of the  Gospels.

SKALING, B. A.  Barrister, Solicitor,  Notary Public.  Money to Loan  Bell Blk.        Enderby, B, C. J  There is every evidence that He intended it to be a religion of service  and of service first and foremost.  The catholicity of Jesus' teaching  on the subject of beliefs as such,  is one of thc intellectual wonders  of the Gospels. The wonderful in-  clusiveness of His prayer and His  service is the vastest reproach to  the organized Christianity of today  that could possibly be framed.  There is no indictment of Christianity that could equal in penetrating severity the condition of  Europe at this moment. But that  indictment is written4in its severest  form in the words of Jesus Christ  in the Gospels.    .  "One needs only, to think back a  little while to see the grotesqueness  of most of the contentions of today.  Only a few years ago Ave were all  wild with rage at the Belgian treatment, :un'der the leadership of King  Leopold of- infamous memory, of  the poor natives of the Congo.   A  few more years back and we were  all   groaning  in   horror  over   the  frightful Russian massacres of the  Jews in the pogroms which shocked  the moral sense of all humanity.  "Let us not be deceived in these  matters.,  We, have all been under  the grip of a theory of Christianity  which was never taught by Jesus  Christ and which finds absolutely  no   sanction "in   His   life   work.  Christianity is a religion of service.  Nobody ever has, and nobody ever  will make an intellectual synthesis  of. Christians which takes them all  in and secures the equal and coordinate   intellectual   assent.     But  Jesus did make, a .synthesis of-service which can take iri every Christian of every name and creed and  type under the,wide Heaven.  "This is the time when.humane  teaching should be|-:broughtvto the.  fore.   It,is.not only that wc should  emphasize peace . and * peace* measures, but ,we. should emphasize tha  fact.that what has passed for Christianity,; is, much of it, not ��������������������������� Christianity at all. ' Let ���������������������������. all the world  be made conscious that Christianity  as "we are seeing.it in operation is  not the Christianity of Jesus Christ.  Christianity is a religion of service,  to great and small, to" strong 'and  weak, to,those who can and those  who eannot speaki for themselves,  service for man and animal,,for all  sentient life, for love and hope and  helpfulness.     That is   the  capital  fact which the whole,world needs  to learn out of the breakdown of  European civilization.    Civilization  needs to be born-again and born  according to the life and teaching  of its Founder."  no longer European in scope, but  Mediterranean. It therefore must  threaten Italy's interests in North  Africa, and raises the century-old  question of thc control of the  'Mediterranean, which must compel the Italian Government to intervene on Ihe side of the Allied  powers in thc present war.  May Have to Run 'cm Back Again  A Hague despatch says: "Several  trains filled with cannon and submarines, bound from Germany lo  the Belgian coast, and destined for  thc proposed attack^on thc .English  coast, have passed Liege. They  have been slopped at Bruges until  further notice, the attack on England haying been postponed until  the present battle in West Flanders  has been decided.  That Germany has by no means  given up its determination to take  Calais is indicated by a significant  message from Berlin, by way of  Copenhagen, that the German general staff has decided that the army  in Poland shall fall back to the  frontier of Silesia, and remain on  the defensive, until the battle iri  Flanders ends with the capture of.  Calais. Such a movement would re^  lease three or four army corps  form Silesia to Belgium.

'  For Sale by Tender  TURKEY NOW INTO IT  the full meaning of which has  never been comprehended until  now. Christianity has never meant  thc test of righteousness, only the  test of doctrine. Membership in  the church and preferment in religious institutions did'not rest upon beauty and holiness of life and  practical service to humanity, but  upon astuteness in theological discussion and skill in ecclesiastical  manipulation. Hence the vast energies of the Christian church were  expended upon doctrine as the  major interest and righteousness as  the minor interest.  "Only in comparatively recent  times has this been discovered. The  religion of Jesus Christ is not, and  never was, and there is not thc  slightest evidence in the teaching  of Jesus that He ever intended it to  It is officially announced at  London that the Turkish Government .has severed diplomatic relations with England and Russia.  This action followed an ultimatum  sent to Turkey by the Allies demanding an explanation for thc  action of Turkish, men-of-war in  bombarding Russian ports in the  Black Sea. An ollicial Turkish report says the Russians opened hostilities on October 28th, firing on a  portion of thc Turkish fleet after  having for some time interfered  with the evolutions of thc warships.  A despatch from Rome to London  says a report has reached there that  400,000 Turks are massed on thc  Caucasus border, and that 300,000  are waiting at Bcyrout, Jaffa, and  other ports for transhipment to the  Sinai Peninsula.

The samples for general  distribution will consist of spring  wheal (about 5 lbs.), white oats  (about 'I lbs.), barley (about 5 lbs.)  and Held peas (about 5 lbs.) These  will be sent out from Ottawa. A  distribution of potatoes (in .'Mb.  samples) will be carried on from  several, of the experimental farms,  lhe Central Farm at Ottawa supplying only the provinces of Ontario  ancl Quebec. All samples will be  sent free,-by mail.  Applicants must give particulars  in regard to the soil on-their farms,  nnd some account of their experience wilh such kinds of grain (or  potatoes) as they have grown, so  thai a promising sort for their conditions may he selected.  Each application must be separate and must be signed by tlie applicant. Only one sample of grain  and one of potatoes can be sent to  each farm. II' bolh samples are  asked for in the same letter only  one will be sent. Applications on  any kind of printed form cannot be  accepted.  As the supply of seed is limited,  farmers are advised lo apply early;  but the applications will not necessarily be filled in the exact order in  which they arc received. Preference will always ne given to the  most thoughtful and explicit requests. 'Applications received after  the end of January will probably  be too late.  All applications for grain (and  applications from the provinces of  Ontario and Quebec for potatoes)  should be addressed to the Dominion Ccrealist, Central Experimental  Farm, Ottawa. Such, applications  require no postage, if otherwise  addressed delay and disappointment may occur.  -Applications,  for potatoes,  from  farmers in any other province  should be addressed (postage prepaid) to the superintendent of lhe  nearest Branch Experimental Farm  in that province.

CONVICTED OF MANSLAUGHTER  In the case of Quinn, King, Sullivan, Green and Christien, at Vernon last week for lhe murder of  Bcrryman, whose body was found  along lhe road on the way to Lumby  early in May, King was the first to  be placed on trial. After the evidence of all thc others.was heard  against King, the Court ordered thc  jury to bring in a verdict of acquit-  al, and King was set free.  Arthur Quinn, one of the accused men, was for several years a  resident of thc Enderby district. Iri  his evidence in the trial of King, he  told the following story, which, in  substance, was corroborated by the  other witnesses: He said that on  the 29th of April he had met Berry-  man, King, Green and Sullivan in  Verhori and was with them at Lum-  bv. Next morning they had left  Lumby about 9 o'clock. They had  several drinks, and each took a  bottle with him. They were pretty  well crowded in the democrat. In  the front seat was Bcrryman on the  right, Christien in tlie middle and  Green on lhc left. They started  drinking soon after they left Lumby  and finished one bottle the first  drink; Soon after they had another  drink and nearly"finished the second bottle. After this he remembered nothing. His mind was an  absolute blank until he woke up in  camp next morning about 5.30  o'clock.  All the other witnesses testified  to being in thc same condition of  bl ank n css^o 17m i nd,-ajuUthere^yas^  little evidence adduced that would  fix the crime upon any one of the  accused.  King, Quinn and Sullivan were  acquitted.
