Allies have  taken the offensive all along the Bel-.  gian-French battle-line, and that the  Russians have succeeded in stopping the Germans who had again  succeeded in reaching a point very  close to Warsaw. In the vicinity of  Cracow, which has been reported as  falling into the hands of-the. Russians -for the past three or four  weeks, and Przemysl, which, too,  has been going to fair for many  weeks, there has been fighting reported attended always by victory  for" the Russians. It is apparent,  therefore, that the enemy is being  gradually worn down, and is becoming weaker,���������������������������if these reports  are to be believed. -  The text of the last official statement coming from Paris reads:.  ''Between tlie sea and Lys, the  English have occupied a little forest to the west of Wylschaetc. Thc  ground gained yesterday by our  troops along thc Yser Canal and to  the west of Ho'lebek has been retained in spile of y vigorous-counter  attack on the part of thc enemy.

Following thc  bridal supper, a dance was held in  the Mara hall, participated in by all  of Mara's young people.  On Monday evening next at 7.30  thc Rev. C. Reed will lecture on The  Yukon, 'to thc Twentieth Century  Bible Class. Mr. Reed knows the  Yukon at first-hand, and has some  excellent pictures of the country  which he will use in connection  with the lecture. The meeting will  be held in the basement of thc Presbyterian Church, and is open to thc  public.  The poultrymen of thc Okanagan  were delighted to learn at the poultry show held in Vernon last week  that they could get alfalfa meal  manufactured so near as Enderby,  and the Alfalfa Products Company  has received many enquiries from  various parts of the Valley. For  Vernon and district W. R. Megaw  has taken the agency, and will act  as the supply centre.  Mr. J. E. Crane believes in getting  the business by-going after it. When  other business men concluded it  was time to stop advertising because  of war conditions, Mr. Crane made  his advertising of increased size.  The results have far exceeded his  anticipations. His Christmas business has thus far exceeded that of  any previous year. It not only pays  to advertise, but it pays, too, to  keep up one's courage and not lie  down when the first puff of adversity comes your way.

He won five specials,  three firsts, one second, three, thirds  and one fifth, and Judges Hinesand  Minshall characterized his class of  Barred Rocks as thc strongest ever  seen in British Columbia, and his  winning Barred Rock hen, Lady  Black Tip, as a marvel. Judge Hines  remarked lhat this hen had thc  finest .wing he had ever seen on a  Plymouth Rock, female, and,������������������but for  a few" feathers not being matured  she would have been awarded the  prize for thc best female in the  show. Mr. Waby's winnings are  said to be the greatest ever made in  the Province in Barred Rocks.  In Barred Rocks Mr. Waby won:  1st and 5th hen; 1st, 2nd and 3rd  pullet; 1st pen, 3rd cockerel, and  specials for best pen, best female,  best pullet, best colored female and  best shaped female.  Mr. Smcdlcy's strain of S. C.  Minorcas won 1st on pen and 2nd  on cock, he being beaten by one of  his own birds nowr owned and. entered by Mr. Bigge of the Gain ford  Poultry Farm. In his R. C. Minorcas Mr. Smedley won 1st, 2nd and  3rd on hens, and special for the  best Minorca pen.  A.. Smithers had five entries and  won'four prizes: 2nd and 3rd Hou-  dan pullet, 2nd Houdan cockerel,  and 3rd White Rock cock.  The Barnum Poultry Farm did  not do so well, carrying off only 4th  on White .Wyandotte pullet.  The poultrymen of the Okanagan  are to be congratulated on the fine  showing made by them. They won  by far the largest number f prizes,  beating the coast birds at almost  every point.  The   showing  of  Rhode   Island  Reds was the-feature of the show.

DECEMBER 17, 1914  CIVIC THOUGHTFULNESS  Mayor Barnes was home- from Vernon from  Saturday evening until Monday noon, when he  had to return lo lake up .his duties as quartermaster sergeant of the. military camp at that  point. When here Mr. Barnes-.-was asked if he  would be in a position to lake "up the duties of  mayor for another term.   His reply >yas brief:  "I expect to be stationed at Vernon as long as  recruiting is carried on, and, while.I perhaps  could return to Enderby at frequent intervals, it  would be impossible for me to devote thc attention to civic matters lhat is required. It will be  necessary to gel somebody else to' take up the  work, f will not be able "to fill the duties of the  ollice���������������������������not while I am a member of the regiment  and have to be away from bomc."  This makes it out of thc question for Mr-.  Barnes to be looked to as a possible mayoralty  candidate.    It virtually places the mantle upon  There are no half-way measures when it comes  to aid for the Empire as proposed by Sir Robert  Borden and the Government. Before war was  declared the Premier asked thc British Government, through tlie war oflice, "What can we do?"  The request came for an army division of 22,000.  men. /Thirty-two. thousand men were sent by  Canada. The Governri.ie.flf, from thc start of thc  war, has not been forced by public opinion, but  has always led public opinion. Still bigger and  more ambitious plans for aiding the Empire have  been decided upon by the Government, which  must more than satisfy every loyal Canadian.  For some lime Sir Robert Borden, Major-General Hughes and the cabinet have been morking  on the best policy to adopt for a permanent war  policy, which will constantly train, men for the  front and provide for continuous contingents for  the aid of the Motherland and the Empire as rapidly as desired by thc War Otficc. Thc military  experts of thc Government, as well as thc British  War and Home Offices, have been consulted, and  a plan has been adopted which will appeal to all.  There will be raised fifty thousand men in  Canada, who will be kept continuously under  arms and in training to go to the front. With  eight thousand men doing garrison duty, Canada  will thus have constantly in training no less than  58,000 men. There is a force of 32,000 at Salisbury Plains, while a Canadian regiment is on  guard in thc Bermudas, so that altogether Canada  will have, in a few weeks, no less than 91,000 men  under arms.  As soon as the second contingent, which will  consist of 17,000 men, goes forward a force will  be-recruited to bring the total number again up to  fifty thousand, making 108,000 men under arms.  As successive contingents arc sent to thc front  their places will be filled, so that Canada will always have fifty thousand men equipped and training and ready to go at thc call of thc Empire.

On Wednesday, Nov. 25th, Dr. N.  0. Walker died in Woodhouse at the  home of his son-in-law, Mr. Joseph  Smyth. He was born on the same  farm in 1832 and it is said that his  paternal grandfather, who was of  sturdy Irish stock, carried a bag of  wheat from the same place on his  back and on foot to Hamilton to  mill when Ihe only road was a  blazed trail through the forest.  The annals of Upper Canada College show the names of many boys,  pupils, of that institution, who have  earned distinction in political, commercial, professional and military  life. The principal of Upper Canada College, in referring to Dr.  Walker's death says: "He was one  of our most distinguished head boys  and his loyalty to his old school  was always a marked feature-of his  character. He was present on prize  day three years ago and made a  long and interesting speech."  The Toronto University records  show that Dr. Walker was a gradu:  ated B. A. in 1855, M. A. in 1856,  M. B. in 1857 and M.D. in 1859.  'He subsequently studied in England and became a member of the  Royal College of Surgeons.   ..  After completing has medical studies the doctor located in Vittoria  and removed to Port Dover two  years later. Here he continued to  live and practice his profession  with a shorty intermission until 13  years ago when he removed to Los  Angeles, Cal., where he, took up  medical practice for about three  years, after which he gave up active  work on account of failing health.  In 1867, just after Confederation,  Dr. Walker ran in the Conservative  interest for the House of Commons,"  his opponent, Peter Lawson, being  elected.  -In .1885 he removed to Toronto  for. a,few months and on the outbreak of the rebellion" iri the Northwest he was. sent by the military  authorities~t'o" the" scene of hostilities, where lie_ had charge of the  base hospital.

McKay,  laid up in a Dublin hospital, writes  of his experience on the battle line  in Belgium:  "I am back in thc Old Country  again, though is is a little sooner  than I would have wished. I wrote  to you from Belgium on the 18th of  last month, and I got laid out on the  following Wednesday.   It was at a  place called Lille.   I got two bullets  and three pieces of shrapnel���������������������������one  on the nose and one on the knee and  one in the right side and thigh.   But  I am not bad.    I will soon be all  right.   "My  knee   is  a  little   stiff.

But that is a  small affair compared with the German Emperor's millions.     I-had 10  weeks of it out there, and I can tell  you it was no joke;   But wc are going to win, for they cannot fight unless they have at least three men to  every one of us.    Just the same I  would like to see it finished and us  fellows back in civilian life again.  The   night   before    I   got   hit   we  charge'd their trenches and before  we left them again some of us were  evading in human blood up to the  boot-mouths.   Truth to tell, I would  not care to be in-the same scrimmage again.'''  NOTICE  SIGNS OF RESTORED SANITY  ENDERBY   LODGE  No. 35. K. of P.  Meets every Monday evening  in K. of P. Hall.

It is evident that the  experiment of suppression which  was made in, the mailer of the Audacious did not turn out so happily  as.the censorship expected. Most  of the English people'do not know  that the Audacious was sunk. The  censors have not permitted the  British newspapers to print a line  about it. The detailed reports of  t h"e""U i?a1s t_er~ wlri^^  the American newspapers were obtained by mail. The ostensible purpose of this suppression was to  keep the news from the Germans,  who, of course, soon learned all  about it. The real purpose, however, was to save the Government  from criticism. That is thc purpose  of all censorship which does not  relate to the details of future military operations.���������������������������N. Y. World.

The names of Mr. Gillman  | Mr. While were coupled lo  [toast "Our Financial Insliiulions."  Mr. Gillman graciously shifted upon the shoulders of Mr. White the  responsibility of making the reply.  Speaking of financial conditions  generally, Mr.'-."While said that as  Canada, the last of the western  countries, was developing rapidly,  perhaps, :too rapidly, there was  bound'to be more or less speculation difficultyyfrom time-to time.  To curb over-speculation our  financial institutions had taken  sleps two years ago ' to reduce  credits along certain lines, and  whether the war had conic at this  lime or not, the Dominion was certain to be forced through a period  of financial depression. Canada,  he said, was fortunate in having  such far-sighted men at the head of  our financial institutions. Fortified  as we are by the action of these  institutions taken two years ago, it  will enable us the quicker to recover from tlie effects of the war  depression. There can be no question as to Canada's future. [I will  become one of- the greatest' countries in the world. When the war  is over there will be such an inllux  of people from Europe thai the  Dominion will be the wealthiest  colony the British Empire possesses  and he fell lhat there was no pari of  the Dominion that gave greater  promise than lhat which wc are  now living in.
