"After British aviators had re-  connoitered lhe cleverly hidden  German gun positions along the  coast," says a Sluis correspondent,  "a combined attack was undertaken by the Allies infantry'against  the German trenches.

Petrogard reports indicate  that the offensive movement of Hie  Germans in Poland' has been effectually checked by the timely arrival of Russian .reinforcements in  time to stop the enemy before his  arrival at Warsaw, - though he' almost reached thc goal of this last  desperate effort. It is not certain,  however that the-check is, of a permanent nature, as.the Germans are  hurrying reinforcements to the support of-the advanced army; and another great battle- is .shaping'to/be  fought -.in it he" vicinity of--Warsaw.

A' letter was . received- the past  week from Mrs. Best, who left two  weeks ago for Alberta points where  they have entered upon, farming,  telling of the excessive cold weather there���������������������������24 below zero. One  can hardly believe it when we arc  enjoying such delightful weather  here.

Later he returned  to England and rejoined the forces  at the front. .  Ex-Mayor J. L. Ruttan returned  from the Fort Fraser country last  Thursday. He left for thc coast on  Saturday and returned to Enderby  on Wednesday. He will leave for  thc north this week, where he is  busy erecting a number of buildings, at Vandcrhoof and Fort Eraser, arid will spend the winter.  W.-I-I. Stevens, superintendent of  Government telephone lines in this  district, was inspecting, the^work  on the line now being strung into  Enderby this week. Mr. Stevens  arranged for thc placing of lhe  long distance booth in the office of  Messrs. Flewwelling & Robinson,  in the old Harvey building, near the  bridge.  Mr. F. R. E. Dellart was in Enderby this week, accompanied by  W. A. Oswald, who is looking for  land, and is much interested in thc  Dellart place. Mr. Oswald is an  experienced big-land farmer, and  interested with him arc many men  of his stamp, who, Mr. Dellart  says, are looking to British Columbia for future homes.  The Methodist Church was filled  with mourners last Saturday afternoon, when the funeral service of  thc late Mrs. A. Paul was held. The  casket was strewn with beautiful  floral pieces. Revs. Dow and Hedley'conducted the service, and thc  burial was in the hands of Undertaker McPherson. Following were  the pallbearers7 Messrs. Fcnton,  Brash, Hartry, Kenny, A. Baird and  Ford.  Letters were received the past  week from Messrs. Oland and  Brown, who left Enderby lo join  the troops at Valcarlicr and are  now with thc first contingent al  Salsbury Plains.    Mr. Brown says J  he is having an awful time trying  to master the "pounds and ounces"  in money-matters, and Mr. Oland  desires to tell his friends that the  only game licences he can now issue are for German snipe, and he  says you had better hurry if you  want to get into the game, as they  are going fast.

There are some small debts  still owing, amounting to not more  than $30, which the Indians are  endeavoring lo make up. This cost  does not include lhc labor put on  the building by the Indians, which  was cheerfully given. Philip Placid  had charge of the work of thc Indians, under the direction of Contractor Russell. Philip also has  charge of thc services in the  absence of the priest.  A most interesting illustrated  lecture will be given in the Methodist Church on Friday evening, the  27th, by Rev. Geo. B. Kinney, B.A.,  of Vancouver, on Mountain Climbing in British Columbia. Mr. Kinney i.s a member of the Alpine Club,  a fellow of the geographical society  and achieved his greatest fame by  being the first man to climb Mt.  Robson, the highest mountain in  Canada. His lecture is illustrated  by a large number of colored lantern slides���������������������������views of the more  noted mountain peaks and ranges  in this province. An offering will  be taken.  A squad of 12 members of the  30th B. C. Horse went to Victoria  from the Vernon camp on Monday,  to prepare for the removal of the  regiment lo Victoria next week.  Thc advance squad will put up 120  tents/for* the regiment, together  with 320 horsestalls. Many of the  men.who have been with the regiment while stationed. at Vernon  have been weeded out, particularly  the married men. Some of these  will be retained at Vernon, where a  recruiting station will be maintained, while the balance of those  to be let out will return 'to their  homes.  -IIARD-I-O-PLEASE^  ' These arc no times to be a police  man���������������������������or a public servant ,of any  kind���������������������������in a small community.

NOVEMBER 26, 1914  SHOULD WE BE DOWNHEARTED ?   NO ! !  Conditions in this particular'section of. British  Columbia arc infinitely, better, than in most sections of (he Province.   Wc speak generally.   Of  course, there no doubt arc isolated cases here and  Ihcre which  may require assistance,, but these  cases are few and far between, and need not exist  in any large degree nor for any time, if they are  promptly   reported   to   the   Canadian. Patriotic  Fund  relief conimitlce.    Many districts in  this  province as well as in tlie East, have real cause  lo be anxious.   Particularly is this so in thc more  thickly populated  communities, and  the larger  cities.    In this district, or, for lhat matter, any  part of Ihe Okanagan, we do not need to worry.  Certainly, in limes like these, all must curtail���������������������������  must live within their means���������������������������if they would escape thc necessity of going without as the season  advances.   It is only reasonable that wc should do  lhis, in view of thc far greater suffering that a  great many thousands arc enduring, and must endure, in other parts of the Empire.  Appreciating all this, and acknowledging what  .Jn.aj 1 _rcaso.n. wc_ought..to beywi.1.1 jiig_to .do, and���������������������������dp.  uncomplainingly, there is still much for all resident in this Valley lo be thankful for, and to he of  good heart. Enderby and vicinity has a quiet  pastoral beauty lhat can never he dimmed, and  we have the fertility of soil and excellence of  climate that should appeal lo each and all resident  in the district. For anyone in lhis favored district to talk "hUie-ruin" or to whine about hard  limes i.s not to his credit or the credit of the district, and the cry should he discounted the moment it i.s heard.  Times will he no harder than wc make them.  As each of us makes his own hell or heaven, so  each of us makes lhe stress of circumstances we  live in. To be hard up is no crime. To have lo do  without many Ihings we would enjoy is nol such  a serious matter, after all. If we can accept the  inconvenience as a mailer of course, and look  only upon lhe problems which must confront us!  as the natural consequence of the general condi-j  lions existing elsewhere, and thai it is a duty wc  owe to ourselves, the community and the Empire,  lo sanely solve the problems without flinching,  the hardship is quickly changed lo a pleasure, and  no mailer whal comes, we may accept it with a  smile of confidence and good cheer.  When you see your neighbor going about his  daily duties wilh a cheery smile and light heart,  don't conclude lhal he has no worries like yours.  Don'l gel a grouch. Smile with him, not at him.  Meet him like a man. Taboo the whine. Cut the  grouch, and use a club on the head of thc chronic  gossip skate, he he male, female or tlie unhappy  medium.  The continued silence of the British Admiralty  in relation to the reported sinking of the super-  dreadnought Audacious is somewhat remarkable,  though not to be wondered at. There were no fatalities reported, and the big battleship was riot  sunk in action, therefore it need hardly.be'expected'lhal thc Admiralty would report the accident.  And, lhe loss of the big warship having come  from striking a mine off the Irish coast, it is not  improbablCcthat the Admiralty would endeavor to  lo keep, the fact dark. Of course, there is good  reason to hope lhat thc catastrophe never look  place, hut there is not much evidence to warrant  I lie belief lhat the whole thing is a canard. The  Inlernalional News Service of New York is not  disposed to put out a story of this nature without  ample knowledge of its authenticity, neither is il  probable thai the stalenient would be issued by  the Associated Press lhat thc authorities at Washington were notified of the accident by Amassador  Page at thc time of its occurrence, if such were  not true. A significant fact is that Washington  has made no official denial of thc report coming  from Washington to this effect.  In lhe Vancouver Province of November 21st  appears a photograph which the International  News Service declares shows thc British battleship sinking after striking a German mine. Thc  picture is stated lo have been made from thc deck  of thc transatlantic Mncr Olympic and shows the  crew of the dreadnought being rescued. The port  side of thc stricken vessel is partly submerged  and the crew gathered near the stern starboard  side.   Two torpedo destroyers arc standing by.  Another significant fact is to be found in the  Admiralty statement lhat all of thc North Sea has  been declared closed to navigation and must be  observed as the battling waters of thc opposing  fleets.  WILL NOT CHRISTMAS IN BERLIN  If Pelragrad reports are to be believed, thc  Russians are making steady, advance against thc  German-Austrian troops. There is evidence, however, that the farther the Russians advance the  more difficult they arc finding thc going, and thc  less enthusiasm they show in their reports of  the daily operations against thc enemy. However, this is to be expected, and nobody knows it  better than the men at thc head of the present  campaign.  Thc advance of the Russians into thc Mazurian  Lakes region of Eastern Prussia, near Johaniss-  burg and Arris, has revealed thc extent of the  preparations made by thc Germans to resist invasions. Thc whole region is described as a gigantic  fortress facing to the cast and south in thc form  of a semi-circle ninety miles in extent. The  spaces between lhc lakes, which range from ponds  by thc hundreds to bodies of water ten miles long,  arc entrenched Avith wire fences. At intervals  there are earth redoubts, which are reinforced  wilh some stonework , and protected by mine  fields. Wherever it is practicable. canals have  been dug- Behind these canals lie German trenches. ' At Arras, where thc Russians arc reported  to have made considerable advance, they have had  lo storm concrete blockhouses, resulting in some  instances in heavy loss of life.

CO-OPERATION THE ONLY TRUE BASIS  Thc greatest good that can come to the farmer  from any source lies within his own power lo  produce. This thought came to us thc other cve-  ning. when, we ..were,asked _why__thc_. local stores.  could not handle first-class local-made butter in  the full measure that il may he brought in by the  various butler producers of thc district. This  place has been put upon co-operation, when given  the opportunity to perform its most efficient service. And by efficient service, we mean co-operation in the full sense of the word. Where each is  willing lo co-operate on a really altruistic basis for  the good of all those wilh whom he co-opcralcs.  The ('olden lUilc must he laid downin no small  measure as a basic principle in every co-operative  line of work. This truth is self-evident. Thc  theories and principles of co-operation have been  proven lo be absolutely successful in a large number of instances and* under various conditions.  II i.s not in substance a beautiful fine-spun theory,  bul ti living, working principle that has stood the  test of years of vicissitude and many failures, only  lo grow and develop inlo a perfectly defined, feasible, working organism. If the path of co-operative movements throughout all thc years of its development were strewn wilh failures so that an  investigator might find nothing but pitiful wrecks  throughout all its course, and in the end should  come "upon the Rochdale System of England, that  one example would be proof absolute, undeniable  and unquestionable lhat the principle underlying  co-operation is a faesiblc one.

Thousands of soldiers fighting in
the great European war are like thc
two pickets along the Potomac during the American war. A Confederate picket shouted across the line
to a Union sentry asking him what
he was fighting for. "I'm fighting
for $13 a month; I reckon you arc
getting $10," was the reply.

"No matter how gallant thc

"Things are going extremely
well. We have had heavy fighting, but still hope that thc fighting will get less and less hard,

"The latest report, which is
being repeated from mouth to
mouth everywhere, is that 17

arises from Clcmenccaii's recent forecast, "Tlie roar of the
Japanese cannon will soon mingle with thc piercing cry of our

co-operation on European soil,
once regarded as unthinkable,
is being, discussed among responsible people as a possibility.
Il is recognized that such a step
would have profound consequences."

Tlie   great   battle  will lake, place in the Norlh Sea,  and reports from  Holland this  week indicate lhal lhe German  navy has about completed preparations for this supreme conflict  on  water.    Whenever  the  Germans   are   ready   they   will  venture out into the North Sea  to give bailie to lhc British now  ready and wailing.    It is not lo  be expected, however, thai this  .momentous step will be taken  by the enemy until all hope on  land  has vanished.    When  lhc  Allied,   forces   on   lhc   French-  Belgian  frontier, and  lhe Bus-  sians in the East, have so badly  tied up the German forces as to  imperil,   the situation  at home  then  shall we sec  lhe German  navy and aircraft take a hand  in' the conflict in  real earnest.

But  since Edison has been behind it,  lhis development has been phenomenally rapid, reaching its  climax in the wonderful Edison  Diamond Disc and Ambrola  Phonographs, recently perfected. Here at last are instruments that truly reproduce music and do not distort it.  This is accomplished by two  distinctive Edison features, the  diamond reproducer point, and  thc entirely new and remarkably hard material used in its  records. ' The diamond point  which, by the way, never has to  be changed, is practically J'ric-  lionlcss, wonderfully sensitive,  il follows the most minute  waves in thc hard record,  searching out and faithfully reproducing the overtones, of the  voice or music, and pouring out  a ilood of deep, rich, mellow  sweetness. In designing this reproducer, Edison, with his characteristic thoroughness, constructed and tested out over two  thousand different models. Thc  result amply repays the elf or Is  spent on it, for the Edison Phonograph gives us, to use lhc inventor's own words, "Music al  last,"  buckshot.
