And as the train  pulled out there was many a heartfelt good-bye said and , many an  earnest wish uttered on behalf of  these friends of Enderby and Enderby people.  In the Provincial Police Court,  before Magistrate Rosoman, last  Saturday, Fritz and Herman Oelhom  were tried on a charge of. assault,  sworn to by Robert Jones. It developed at the trial that the Oelhoms  recently purchased a piece of land,  on which the owner reserved some  cord wood. Last week'.

CUP WINNERS  There "are shown in'thc postoffice  window this week the handsome  silver cups awarded in thc oat and  mangle competitions held the past  season by the Department to the  successful Farmers' Institute members. The cups are suitably inscribed, and must be won three  times by a member before they become the private property of the  winner. .W. Monk, Grindrod, won  the cup for the prize mangles, and  J. F. Moore, Enderby, for the prize  oats. In both these competitions  the second prize was won by thc  Skyrme Brothers, Grindrod," and  the third in oats went to F. Hassard, and. in mangles to Rupert  Davy, Mara.  TO GO TO THE FRONT  CITY COUNCIL MEETING  A meeting of the City Council was  held last evening, Acting Mayor  Murphy in the chair; present, Aldermen Dill, Mack and Robinson.  The amending by-law covering  the extension of time for discount  on taxes passed its first and second  reading.  A redraft of the city bicycle bylaw was submitted by Messrs. Billings & Cochrane, and passed its  initial reading.  A letter from Messrs. Billings &  Cochrane submitted the proposal of  the Water Board as to allotment of  water for waterworks purposes and  power purposes.  Licut.-C'oloncl A. T. Ogilvie, of  Victoria, district officer-.commanding, stated in Vancouver thc other  clay that Lieut.-Colonel C. L. Bott  and his regiment of CIO men, recruited from squadrons of the B. C.  Horse, have been ordered to make  ready to go to the front,at an early  date/ This., regiment, which now  bears the official-title of the Second  Regiment of Canadian Mounted  Rifles, was warned lhat it would be  ordered to thc front shortly.  POOR IN BIBLE LORE  One afternoon an American was  being driven around Edinburgh,  looking at Ihe sights, when thc  cabman stopped and turned to his  fare. "That, sir," he said proudly,  waving his whip towards a residence, "is the house of John Knox.'  "John Knox," was the jokeful rejoinder of the American, "Who the  deuce was John Knox." : "Good  explained tthe cab-  given a  evening,,  when local talent presented at tne  Opera   House   the  laugh-provoking  comedy "A Night Oft."   The house  was crowded, and there was a sympathetic response from the audience  lhat made   the   performance "go"  without a hitch and wilh a mellowness seldom noticeable at, amateur  efi'orts of this kind.  ��������������������������� Great credit is due Mr. Stoker for  his  untiring  elforts   to  bring,the  performance, up to the high standard to which it attained, and to all  those taking part for their splendid  interpretation- of the various,char-,  acters and the ease and grace which  characterized their- portrayal." ���������������������������-- >  "A Night Oft" is one of the Daly  Syndicate,copyright plays���������������������������one of  the s best of them���������������������������for which the  publishers charge a royalty, of $25  every time it is performed.

The play runs with a touch,of  private life in the home of a college  professor.- Professor Babbit,' whose  wife opposes theatricals, writes* a  tragedy, and is induced by;."Snap"  a theatrical barn-stormer in pursuit  of fame and fortune, lo allow him  to produce it.   Mrs. Babbit must not  know  anything about  the  coming  performance.     She   manages ��������������������������� the  Professor's    household    with    no  quesUons asked.    Also, as mothcr-  iivla"\\^sh"e���������������������������c"0"ntrols��������������������������� the-affairs^ofT^|j-j^ yj ,s  her daughter's home, and through' ���������������������������   -   '  her and the clever, foxy Mr. Snap,  situations  become  more  ludicrous  at every stage of the performance.  Miss Gibbs, as the Professor's wife,  carried   her  part well.    And  Miss*  Elliott, as the newly-wed daughter,  Mrs. Dr. Damask, showed a conception   of   the   character   that   was  simple,   confiding   and   true.     Mr.  Gillman's Dr.Damask was also good.  Miss Hazel Stevens, as Nisbe Babbitt, the youngest imp of the household, seemed a wee bit too Priscilla-  like to get oul of the character all  that an "imp" should be, but her, appearance and. acting, voice and  enunciation _ were ' charming. Mr'.-  Prince, as Jack Mulberry, the young  man with a 'past,"- gave a very true  interpretation of the character, and  when "srnitten-'by the- charms 'of.

In the opinion of the French military .authorities, lhe Germans arc  beginning to lose Iheir grip on  France and Belgium. An official  summary of the results achieved by  the Allies in their offensive recounts  progress at many points, which  "seems to have disturbed the enemy." Thc latest communications  from Berlin, however, tell of offensive movements with resulting gains,  and make it appear that the German armies are firmly holding the  conquered ground.  There is a similar conflict of  statements concerning the condition in thc east. The Russian war  office challenges recent accounts of  a great German victory in. Poland.'  While it is admitted at "Petrograd  that the recent retirement of the  Russians to new positions was not  entirely voluntary, the claim is  made that the armies arc now in  safer and stronger positions.  The ultimate outcome of the German advance upon Warsaw is still  iroblematical, as a decisive battle  las vet to be fought. Although the  Russian centre has retired, it now  has been reinforced and is holding  a line on the Bzura river from its  juncture with the Vistula.  Resentment A roused  The semi-official.attempts to minimize  the  importance  of the  east  coast  raid  have aroused  some  resentment   in   London  which  finds  voice in  a  letter  from Sir Walter  'Runciman, father of the president  of the Board  of Trade, who asks  how it came to pass "that when the  ���������������������������German vessels came into lhc open  from their hiding place, they were  allowed to come' lo our shores unobserved,    unchallenged    an'd    obviously unknown.    Why were they  allowed to get here without interruption,  ancl   why  escape?    What  does the intelligence department say  to this?   Were we caught napping?  .The ' publishing . of ��������������������������� the   fantastic-  phrases, so oft   repeated, that  the  raid   has  no  military  significance,  that developments are going on and  that the ships fled and were lost in  the mist is no consolation to those  who have been bereaved and those  who crowd lhe hospitals.   Nor is il  quite a sailor-like way of disposing  of an ugly incident  that required  resource and instant action."  Five  Flour a  Roses   and  Dill Bros.

ADVANTAGES OF ADVERSITY  Somebody has said that poverty has its .advantages and adversity its uses. When you are  poor and your neighbor is poor, and all your  friends are poor, you can wear out your old  clothes and none will think the worse of you for  doing il���������������������������indeed, your neighbors and friends will  envy you for having so many old clothes to wear  out. You arc also excused from calls, you are  not troubled with too many visitors, bores do not  bore you, spongers do nol sponge. No one thinks  of presenting you wilh a testimonial; ilatterers  do not Halter you, ami you are saved many a de-  cqfilon".." AjuiriasllyTif you have"ii "tnlc^fficmrift  lhc world, you arc sure to know it in a short  manage]', Mr. R. Robertson, must bear the brunt  of it all. Speaking at Summerland last week,  Mr. Robertson gave a summary of the past season's operations, detiling the various moves  made by him in his -efforts,to secure for the  growers higher prices and a better market.  To satisfy himself as to the reason why his organization had not gotten belter prices, a number  of questions had been sent lo dealers from Winnipeg to the coast, asking for impartial, confidential answers thereto. Summarized, these  answers were lhat, up to the time df the recent  dumping, competition from Washington was nil.  The Growers' worst competition was from Okanagan Valley in the form of '.consignments' and  culling of prices. The question of what firm, or  firms arc doing this, pointed invariably to one  particular, firm, a second sometimes being mentioned. Were our prices lower than our competitor's? No. Based on a $600,000 crop how  much more would wc have gotten if there had  been no internal competition? These answers  ranged from $60,000 to $300,000. One expert  put'it at $120,000.  "Get together; this is your only salvation," declared Mr. Robertson. Declaring he was no pessimist, he said "Wc are going to do it; the temper  of the Okanagan people is along that line."  Mr. Robertson recounted how he had been  forced to dispose of much of thc season's output  on the consignment basis. There was, however,  no one more opposed to the consignment method  than he. By that method the seller absolutely  lost control of the price. It was equally unsatisfactory for the wholesaler and retailer. One retailer pleaded with him to endeavor to control the  price, as on a consigned market one dealer has no  idea of what his competitor is paying.  ASSOCIATED BOARD OF TRADE  space ol lime.  In the'vicinity of Enderby there are many evidences of lhe advantages of adversity. In whatever direction one turns the eye, there'are small  or large patches of newly cleared land, with here  and there new farm buildings and increased-acreage being made ready for spring ploughing.  Tin.- ()KI-yea'rniiig-l()--get-away-f-ro!n-ll]c-far]i]-aii<l  into the cities has disappeared.'..For the past few  years our farmers have been turning their heads  from Ihe land to the cities. Today they are  lurniug hack, hack from the cities to the land  .And wilh them are coming others,  adverse induslrinl conditions in the large and  small cities Ihere would nol be lhis turning back  to the land.  .People are realizing now as they  before, lhat the man who is real  i.s the. man on the land, and there.  more of Ihem getting back to it.  wing of the back-lo-thc-land idea  man on Ihe land, who previously IV  with his lot, more encouraged, am  Ihe farm life spurs him on to do things left undone for years. All of this is bringing to the  land new blood, new interest, new life, and the  outcome eannol be but good to each and all.  At the annual meeting bf the Associated  Boards of Trade held at Kelowna on thc 8th inst.  delegates were present from Armstrong, Vernon,  Kelowna, Summerland and Penticton. Resolutions were passed requesting the Provincial Government to pass a law similar to the "Sales and  Shares Act" of Manitoba, to prevent the peddling  of shares in unsound companies; urging upon the  Dominion Government to enact legislation to  compulsorily expropriate such Indian lands for  legitimate settlement wherever it is found necessary in the general interest of thc district to do  so; in favor of free wheat; asking the Provincial  Government to enact- legislation compelling  vehicles to carry lights when travelling after  dark; requesting the Dominion Government ato  increase thc maximum weight lor thc carrying  of fruit by parcels post up to 15 pounds.  ���������������������������The work of the Associated Boards of Trade,in  recent years has been of thc utmost importance  to the various parts of the Okanagan Valley.  Naturally, the towns mostly benefitted were  those whose local Board of Trade took the most  advantage of the opportunities offered by membership "in thc Associated Boards. In this particular, perhaps thc Enderby Board has been the  most lax, and, as a result, Enderby has not taken  thc position justly entitled to. However, next  year lhe annual meeting of the Associated Boards  will be held in Enderby, and in view of this, there  is no doubt that Enderby will rally to line and  take her place with the oilier Valley towns in  working on a broad basis in the interest of the  Valley as a unit.

The closing months of the shippers' season are  upon us. and already the growers are bitterly  complaining of the low prices for Ihe past year's  crops. OF course, the. blame, is being laid at Ihe  door of the I'uiled (Jrowers' Association, and the  Heck's Weekly says the Liberal newspapers  throughout the country seem bent upon forcing  thc. Government into an early election. Protesting lhat they would regard such an election as a  breach of the "political truce," now supposed to  exist between the parlies, they are nevertheless  doing everything within Iheir power to provoke  the Conservatives inlo making thc appeal which  they affect so greatly to deplore. No one need  blame the. Liberals if they think Ihey see an opportunity for redceming*lhc country from Conservative rule within the next three months for  doing everything within their power to bring  about an election as soon as possible. But they  will find Sir Robert Borden and his colleagues  fully capable of meeting them, whatever election  scheme they may bring forward.  Wheat, Oats, Etc.

The raid was made between  8 and 9 a. m., Dec. 16th and'the distance along the coast line attacked  was about 40 miles. From Heligoland, the German naval base, to the  English coast towns attached, is 400  miles, and the public of England  are now asking how the German  warships managed to break through  the cordon of British warships j made for  which are supposed to have the entrance at Heligoland.-bottled up.  It was an additional surprise, and  a disappointment, when the admiralty announced that all the German  ships succeeded in ��������������������������� escaping and  safely reaching Heligoland again,  through the network~of mines,"after  succeeding in making the ruthless  raid on the fortified and unfortified  coast cities.  -The operations of the. Allies on  lan'd the past week have-been "of'the  utmost importance. The British,  French and Belgian troops 'have  continued their7 offensive in the  West, and; according,to the French  official reports, have made  slight progress. This has not been  accomplished without serious opposition on the part of the Germans,  ines forward from Nicuporl,  they had the assistance of the  British fleet, which violently bombarded Westende, one of thc many  little coast towns held by the Germans. This attack was without effect, and lhc Allies were repulsed,  Berlin says.  Farther inland, the French also  claim to have gained ground. Jn  thc Argonne there apparently has  been a lull in thc fighting, but both  in thc Woevre and Alsace, the two  other regions where severe fighting  has been in progress for some time,  the Germans appear to have delivered counter attacks, though  without results.   "'  In Poland, preparations are being  a new battle, or series of  battles. The Germans claim to  have achieved the greatest victory  of the war over the Russians, in  the vicinity of Warsaw and along  the Vistula, but the details of the  victory have not been given out,  and the report is discredited. However, the Russians, according to a  former member of the Cabinet, at  Petrograd, have decided, despite  the disappointment it must cause,  to withdraw their left wing at least,  and form a new line back in their  own territory. This, the .report  says, will'relieve Gracow, but will  compel the Austro-German forces  to fight farther away from the  further strategic railways by which they  have been able to move troops at  will to desired points. This plan  doubtless will affect'the rest of the  who, at every point where an advance-was made, fought against it  foot by foot. ,   '.  Along - the   coast; of   Flanders,  where the. Allies are trying:to. push  battle line also^ except in thc extreme north of Poland, where the  German  back by  siahs.
