Stirling, Kelowna, saying that his  son, Lieut. Robert Stirling, had been  killed in action.  Mr. A. D. Stroulger was in Vernon  Tuesday, completing final papers  for the purchase of the Long place.  This property consists of 97 acres  of line, dairy-farm land and adjoins  ' thc Stroulger farm.  It is said thai tourists will spend  millions of dollars in British Columbia this vear, and the Okanagan  Vallcv is fortunately situated so as  to capture a share of this if the  =*-propur"=acconimodations=- could=be  provided.  The Misses Davies desire to acknowledge lhc following contributions to the Cottage Hospital: Mrs.  Murrin, linen and jelly; Mrs. Bigge,  eggs; Mr. Cowan, eggs; Mrs. But-  chard, papers; Mrs. George Folkard,  old linen; Mrs. Stroulger, butter.

Supposing the businessmen and  people generally of Canada were to  gel cold feel as Ihe banks of Canada  have, and all combined to cinch Ihe  people, curtail credits and force up  prices, as lhe banks of Canada havo,"  what would become of the,country?  People wilh vivid imaginations  and a penchant for free newspaper  publicity, can easily make Zeps and  olher mysterious air craft out of  floating clouds on a moonlight night  ���������������������������particularly if they live in the  vicinity, of the dry belt on, Okanagan lal.c.  A philosopher trudging along thc  road into Enderby thc other day in  the delightful spring sunshine, soliloquized thus: "Enderby and district people should play 'blindman's  buff,' or 'a fellow feeling for a fellow creature.' Thc exercise would  do us all good."  The lumber business is showing  most encouraging revival. The  Okanagan SaSv Mills Company is  shipping from 20 to 25'carloads a  week, and the company has orders  aheail that will keep them busy to  their full loading capacity for the  next month or two.  Anniversary Services will be held  in thc Baptist Church next Sunday,  morning   and   evening.     Rev.   Mr.  Henderson, of Armstrong, will pre  side al thc morning service, and Mr.  B. S.

The Mara Musical & Athletic Association arc holding their annual  St. Patrick's dance this "year on thc  evening of March 12th. The reason  for changing thc. date being that  if held on the 17th it would clash  with other dances held in neighboring localities. No effort will be  spared to make this dance the most  enjoyable of the season.   '  Manager Slater, of the Armstrong  Creamery, says, in a communication  published in the' Advertiser, thai  the creamery has contracted to dispose of all butter it can turn out, as  the market is unlimited for good  creamery butler. > Mr. Thomas, who  has had several years' experience in  butter-making in the Fraser River  dairying dislricts, will -have full  charge of the butter department of  the Armstrong creamery.   ,  CITY COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS  meantime to  pending  his  COURT O : REVISION SITTING  * All members of the City Council  excepting Aid.

The City Council convened in  regular session Monday evening, all  members excepting Aid. Hartry  present.  Aid. Faulkner reported that he  had interviewed ex-Alderman Blanchard wilh reference lo sand taken  from the city sand heap and used  in connection with the building of  the Fortune schoolhousc, who had  stated that he had riot now any information on the subject, having  turned the books in .connection with  said building to Air. Ruttan, to  whom they belonged. Decided to  write Mr. Ruttan for further in  formation, and in the  lay the matter over  reply.  Aid. Faulkner, as chairman of the  waterworks committee, brought up  the matter of Mr. W. A. Russell using city waler in connection with  the erection of his residence on the  Poison sub-division, although . he  had made no application to the city  for same.* Mr. Russell, who was  present, explained that he had made  application through tlie City Constable'' and- was- referred to'-tiie  Chairman.,of the waterworks; com-  miltee'-_.He had not."applied.to-the  city 'because there:iWas_7no..city:  main near, his,properly, and that he  had obtained lhe water in question  from a-,private'pipe; owned,by Mr.  Flewwelling.- Aid. Faulkner pointed  out that even, if Mr^Flewwclljng  o\vncd*.the*"'pipcy-thc:water b'elo'rige'd  to thc city. The clerk then drew attention to Sec. ti of By-law No..*29,-  which provides as follows:  "It shall be unlawful for any person or persons to lend, sell, give,or  otherwise,dispose of water-supplied  by the city, to permit said water, to  be taken or carried away for. ihe  use or-benefit of others, except'in  the case of fire."  The case of Mr. Mitchell, who is  known'to carry all water used on  his premises from an 'adjoining  property -having been referred to,  the clerk explained thai when Mr.  Mitchell "erected his house he had  made the usual application to the  council for connection with the city  waler system, and,,-as it was not  then possible to, give him a supply,  he was granted special permission  by the council to obtain water-in  tliis way until such time as the cily  was in a position lo instal a main  o n_J h e_J_olso lusu b_d i vision.���������������������������As-thc.  council were satisfied that lhere  was no intention on the part of Mr.  Russell and Mr. Flewwelling to take  advantage of thc cily, and that lhe  matter had arisen entirely through  the difficult conditions existing in  regard to waler supply in this pari  of the city, it was decided to let  thc question drop, the clerk being  instructed to collect for one month's  use of water from Mr. Russell, this  amouni to be added to thc first bill  rendered him after his property became connected with the city water  system.  Aid. Dill moved, seconded by Aid.  Grant "lhat attention be called io  thc ' serious financial position in  which the cily is placed in consequence of the non-receipt of the.  usual revenues; and lhal property  owners 'be, and they arc hereby,  urged lo pay Iheir outstanding tay.-s  with the least possible delay."

Will Investigate Merchantmen  Merlin.

The reply de-  dares Germany's readiness lo accept virtually all of the American  nroposiils exeepl Ihe one which  would restrict the use of anchored  mines to purely defensive purposes.  The German Government expresses  the belief that belligerents cannot  afford t<> abandon entirely the use  anchored mines for offensive operations. It is willing to consider the  abandonment of floating mines. THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday, March 4, 1915  producing. The markets of the world are wildly  clamoring for more.

MARCH 4, 1915  COMMENCING VOLUME EIGHT  Wilh this issue, Thc Press starts on a new year.  Volume Seven is now closed. The past year has  been one of adverse conditions, though wc feel  we have made progress. When thc year opened  wc believed lhere was ample reason to be hopeful  of better things, and under this belief wc spread  ourselves to the limit of a double-decker linotype.  With this machine installed we arc in a position  to give Enderby district a much larger paper.  But a newspaper cannot give its readers a larger  paper than its patronage warrants. Since thc  opening of lhc war our mcrchunts have fell the  pinch, and, like everybody else, have been forced  lo economize. In economizing they have slopped  Iheir advertising, and, as a result, Thc Press has  had to meel lhe new conditions imposed, lhc result being that The Press is just one-hall* the size  wc had hoped lo have il when Volume Seven was  started. Let us hope thai conditions will so improve during 1915 thai, wilh the close of Volume  Eight, March 1st, 1916, The Press will be what thc  No matter what factions, selfish .interests,  bigoted'patriotism and materialistic aims have  divided the people of Canada inlo rival camps, the  war has made us all one camp. Tlie war which at  first wc talked about wilh some brag and bluster,  even amid our fears, has become loo big a thing  lor brag. Wc no longer talk in rhetoric. We do  no ling-waving. We take no stock: in lhc pomp  and pageant of church parades. Wc forget  whether lhe soldier belongs to this or that Canadian regiment once known by its uniform, and  remember that lie is a soldier of Canada. When  the band goes marching past, when lhe bagpipes  skirl and the bugles blow we arc stirred, but not  lo Hinging hats in the air in idle huzzas." When  wc look at thc soldier on the street wc realize that  somebody whom wc know is a friend of his, or he  may be one of our own circle, one of our own kith  and kin. We know that he is going to war; not  because he likes war; not because hc wants glory,  of which there is little or none in a war like this,  except the glory of doing one's duty; not because  hc is tired of peaceful pursuits and wants a bigger  life as it was in thc adventurous days of the South  African war; but because every man who puts on  the khaki and marches from the training-ground  through thc streets and at last feels himself being  pulled away into thc grim realities of a terrible  world-war, goes that hc may add one more to the  honor roll of them that do their plain duty when  thc country and thc Empire call them. And those  who look at thc soldier, those of us who in many  cases have as much right to go soldiering as he,  put on our thinking caps as never before. Instead  of cheering him as hc marches past wc grip his  hand and know that in letting him go wc are sacrificing ourselves in our love of him and of the  country that claims us all. The soldier of Canada  is finding thc heart of thc people of Canada, just  as thc soldier of England is tearing away the  materialistic masks of English people, and thc  soldiers of France are smashing thc pleasure idols  and thc atheism of France in a war that whatever  ils cause or its cure has for its main business the  finding of thc heart of thc people. When thc war  is over wc shall have bigger hearts and braver  outlooks. When it is over we shall be a different  people. And when the boys come marching home  wc shall hail them, not as spectacular heroes, but  as men who, with us, bore the burden of war.for  thc sake of a new and a better Canada.���������������������������Augustus  Bridle, in Canadian Courier. ,   r  HARD-HEADED NEUTRALITY  Under thc caption, "Let's Mind Our Own Business," thc Los Angeles Examiner gives this hard-  headed opinion as to what the attitude of the  United States should be towards thc belligerent  nations of Europe:  "It would seem to be high time for Americans to regain their normal state of-*sanity and good, humor  while watching thc--war of Europe. Certainly it is the  part of sense to recognize that we are neutrals, and  that all the warring nationse arc on friendly terms  with us. Consequently it is our bounden duty to treat  development of the lown and district will warrant each of them with fairness.   We should not believe all  ���������������������������an eight-page, iill home print.

And if the home merchant does not assist  in spreading sunshine Ihe community cannot  hope lo encourage people to come from elsewhere  lo share their gloom.  We have every reason to be thankful. Thc  present year promises to usher in new and trying  conditions. We do not believe the end of 1915  will see the war more than well started. But lhal  should not interfere with lhe development of the  home town and district. Indeed, il is all lhe more  reason why we should press forward with such  development. The lumber business for 1915 will  be above normal, and, certainly, the market for  all agricultural products will be way above anything we have known in the history of agriculture  in Canada. These things should give us courage  lo push ahead. Because lhe world is at war is no  reason for those not engaged in the lighting to sit  down and whine about it. Every man and every  woman has a mission at home quite as important  as that ol* the men a I the front. We musl keep up  the courage of those at home, and keep up the  productive end of lhe empire. The millions in thc  fighting line are consuming all lhat the empire is  Hungary is lighting for dynastic revenge and thc extermination of her troublesome neighbors, Servia and  Montenegro; that Holy Russia is fighting lo extend  Hiissian autocracy and Russian orthodoxy and to gain  her centuries-old object, an.open sea coast; that Trance  is lighting to regain Alsace-Lorraine; and that Great  Britain i.s fighting to destroy Ihe rapidly growing trade  and sea commerce of Gerniiiny. A schoolboy, who  knows his history, ought to be able to see the real  objects for which Europe's rulers have sent their  peoples to kill one another.  "It would be much more complimentary to our  national intelligence and information if American publications and American citizens would drop sentimental talk about 'martyred little peoples,' 'Huns at thc  gales,' 'scraps of paper' and all that sort of manufactured excuse, and recognize the truth that Europe's  struggle is simply a scramble of Europe's financiers,  military and naval aristocracies and throned rulers to  rob one another of trade, profit and territory. "With  that once firmly in mind, we might then get sense  enough to quit taking sides with cither disturber of the  peace and go about our business until these war-mad  lunatics get enough of their folly and quit."

A MAIL ORDER DEAL  Down in Oklahoma thc other day  a man went into a store to buy a  saw. He saw the kind he wanted  and asked the price. It was $1.65,  thc dealer said.  "Good gracious," said thc man, "I  can get the same thing from Sears,  Roebuck & Co. for SI .35."  "That's less than it cost me," said  the dealer, "but I'll sell it on the  same terms as the mail order house  just the same."  "All right/ said the customer.  "You can send it along and charge  it to my account."  "Not on your life," the dealer replied. "No charge accounts. You  can't do business-with the mail order house that way.. Fork over the  cash." '      ','  ^The* customer complied.       _   -  "Now 2 cents for postage and 3  cents for a money order."  "What���������������������������"     ,  "Certainly, you have to send a  letter and a money order to a mail  order house, - you'' know.''  The customer, inwardly raving,  kept to his agreement and paid the  nickel.   - .  "Now 25c cxprcssage."  "Well I'll be ," he said, bid  paid it, saying "Now hand me that  saw and I'll take'���������������������������; it home myself  and be rid of this- foolery."  "Hand it'to you? Where do you  thinkyo'u are?

In a cable to the Vancouver Province, F. A. McKenzic says: "Information reaching me from the coast  is exceedingly optimistic concerning the success of the British Admiralty's counter moves against  German submarines.   The'effect of  the blockade' upon life here has  been,'so far, practically nil.   Prices  today show a slight , downward  rather than an upward tendency,  while the despatch of supplies and  reinforcements for thc army at the  front has been continued practically  without break.  "Thc general continental situation is regarded with great hopefulness, our position all along thc line  on both eastern and western fronts  having materially improved within-  the week.   Thc immediate result of  the possible opening of the Dardanelles to Russian traffic has .been to  weaken the prices of commodities.

Baird, who left Enderby for thc  front at thc early stages of the war,  writes to a friend from thc trenches  in France:  "I wonder how you are all getting  on at Enderby. I spend any amount  of time out here thinking of you all  and looking forward to a great  bacno if wc get home. I am not  allowed by the censor lo put where  we are In France, as wc arc now in  Ihe front line of trenches and they  arc afraid of any information leaking out lo the enemy, but the above  address will find me. Put "Captain  Baird," as they have started me oil'  again with my old rank.  "When we are in the front  trenches wc can hear the Germans  talking quite plainly. At the present moment I am writing from the  reserve billets, which are a little  way back, but very much within  artillery range, and also many spare  rifle bullets whizz about. One of  the most annoying things here at  the front is the absolutely continual  sound of big guns, day and night.  At night more goes .on than by day;  search lights and star shells everywhere, and, as we do all our relieving, etc., then, it is then that we  get most of our casualties, barring,  of course, when we or they make a  definite attack.

The Walker .Press THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday, March 4, 1915  Agricultural Conference Proves a  Big Step in Inspiring Confidence  The Agricultural Conference held  .last Thursday afternoon in K. of P.  Hall, attended by Mr. P. H. Moore,  of the Dominion Experimental Farm  at Agassiz, Prof. McDonald, ' Live  Stock Commissioner, and Mr. H.  Culhbert, .Industrial Commissioner  of lhc City of Victoria, was listened  lo by 100 or more interested fanners and businessmen, and the conference proved a great success so  far as il went. The gentlemen sent  by the Dominion .Department; of  Agriculture, were all good speakers  and practical men in the lines discussed by them with the people, and  France. She is lighting, first, to establish before the world that when  the word of Great Britain is given,  there is nothing on earth, or in  heaven or hell that will compel her  to refuse lo carry it out. And we  are fighting, too, for Great Britain  "and all her colonics.  The speaker then referred to the  enormous preparations that have  been going on in Europe for many  years for this war, and when it  came it found Great Britain the  most ready of any of the nations to  carry it to a successful issue.  Speaking of the" production-.side  they left a good impression and an; of the question, and particularly of  optimistic spirit with thc people. ��������������������������� the duty of Canadians in the matter,  There was, however, some slight ihe said there arc goods imported  disappointment on thc part of many j into Canada from Germany and  who attended the meeting expecting Austria alone, to the yearly value  to learn something of thc intentions  of the Department in the matter of  of   $250,000,000,   every   article   of  which  could  as well  be manufac-  assisling the farmers to get seed; turcd here. And there has been a  grain, and something more definite j total of -$000,000,000 worth of goods  as to what agricultural produce is* imported   into  Canada  every  year  to be most needed, and -when.  The meeting was more of thc na-  thal should be manufactured here.  He said the great need was more  lure of an "enlivener,"���������������������������something loyalty on the part of our consumers  to inspire confidence and courage and businessmen to Canadian-made  in thc men on the land, and to! goods. Foreign made goods were  open the way for concrete thought very often given the preference in  looking lo closer co-operation and the selling by our businessmen. He  and a better understanding of the showed whal effect this has had on  principles which are at the bottom the progress and development of  of all successful agricultural effort, the Dominion. In each sale made  Thc speakers���������������������������= pointed out in a of a foreign-made article, the total  general way thc duty and opportun- ,Cost of production and the big end  ity of Canadian farmers, explaining of the profit go out of the country  and discussing conditions in coun- t0 develop other countries, and the  tries where live stock and agricul-' retailer's profit, always the smallest,  lural production will be affected by alone remains here to assist in the  the war.  Mr.  Cuthbert, who  took  up  the  do was to bury petty jealousy and  combine to help along any institution or industry the fuller development of which meant general community advancement. To the farmers hc advised a closer knitting of  interests, and as between the farmer  and businessman, he urged upon  each the necessity of carefully safeguarding the interests of each other.  He urged strongly the need of supporting the creamery now starling  at Armstrong, and every other similar institution which meant thc  bettering of conditions for all, musl  be supported by our ranchers in a  wholehearted manner if Ihey ever  expect to make the district prosperous for each and all.  Bright Outlook for Live Stock  Prof. McDonald, Provincial Live  Stock Commissioner, dealt largely  with the question of live stock and  strongly pressed the farmers of the  district to get into farm stock raising as early as possible. But thc  most important thing in connection  with this was that nothing but  blooded stock should be raised. Thc  cost of feeding the blooded animal  is no more than feeding the scrub.  In all the countries engaged in  the war, the stock industry has held  a very important place. These  countries since the war broke out  have been unable to carry on the  industry, and il will take some time,  even after peace has been declared,  for these countries to resume the  rearing of farm stock in anything  like thc numbers required. These  must come from ofiier countries;  why not from Canada?  Next to live stock, Prof. McDonald  said, the attention of our farmers  should be directed to intensified  farming. If not generally known,  it should be, thai the most prosperous farming communities the world  development of thc country.  Agriculturists, artisans and busi-  qucstion of "Patriotism and ProducV ncssmen each must bear a share of  tion," spoke fluently of the great'the responsibility for this conditionJ over arc stock-raising communities,  need of the practical application of. 0f affairs, for all have been careless and the most prosperous stock-  Ihis slogan.

Mr.  in  standing  on  the street corners, port of local manufacturers.   There,' Cuthbert had referred to a French  ancl running down thc country, if. he said, everybody asked for and  we are doing nothing ourselves to i insisted upon getting Victoria-  help to bring the country back to j made articles in preference to the  its normal condition of prosperity."  His great desire at this conference  intensified farmer residing at Victoria, whom he had seen. This  French  farmer had less than one  same article made elsewhere in the acre of ground.   He had frequently  Province or thc Dominion.    If an! visited the place.   The Frenchman  was  to   plant  a   little  hopefulness article  was  not  made  in  Victoria; had three men employed regularly  on this small acre.   Hc thought he  and optimism.     We arc in the war I and was made in Vancouver or else  to  stay  to  the end, and  it is  thc where  in  the Province,  then  that  most destructive war the world has  ever seen, or may ever see. But no  matter how great it may be or how  regrelable the destruction, il will  not exist always. So let us not  think of the conditions that are,  but of thc conditions that will be  when the war is over.  Throughout the Northwest, he  said, conditions never looked better for a bumper crop. The only  condition lhal has caused any "uneasiness there was lhal of seed, and*  article was demanded in preference  to one made elsewhere in the Dominion, and if the said article was  not made in the Province, then the  Canadian-made article was taken in  preference do one made across the  line or across the ocean. They had  found that this movement is proving  of great value, and hc advised his  hearers to co-operate in a similar  movement here.  In  the matter of local  dcvelop-  must use both the bottom and the  top of the land. There is scarcely a  single month in the year that this  man does not sell $500 worth of  garden truck off this acre. He gets  as high as fifteen crops a season off  of lhc land. He admitted that there  were few men in this country who  could repeat the performance. But  all could do better than they do if  they knew how and had the energy  to keep thc work moving.  Thc speaker advised the farmers  to get together in groups and take  advantage of lhc standing offer of  the Dominion Department of Agri  We can supply you with  Varsity,   Hungarian   and  Robin Hood Flours  Also Bran, Shorts, Middlings, Wheat, Oats, Barley Chop,  Oat Chop, Corn and Poultry Foods.

That was the year thai was also the  most prosperous for Ihe lumber industry of British Columbia. It is  estimated lhal the value of the  wheal crop of lhe Northwest for  "Ml 15 will reach WWO^OfKhluid if  these figures are reached, jusl think  of all il will mean to the lumber in-  duslry of lhis Province. It means  lhal conditions will be better than  ever before. And consider, loo, the  enormous demands thai will arise  at Ihe close of the war, for the product of our lumber mills, our mines  and our agricultural industry. The  rebuilding of all the vast territory  lhat i.s now being destroyed; the return of the millions now engaged in  Wiir lo the various industries, and  whal this will mean, for all these  towns and cities lhal have been laid  wasle, and all these factories that  have been destroyed, must all he  rebuilt. Canada will no doubt experience Ihe greatest revival in her  history. And il is the duly of our  agriculturists and our businessmen  and manufacturers generally lo take  heart and prepare for the big things  that are sure lo follow.  Thc speaker then took up the  patriotic side of the great conflict,  and reviewed the causes leading up  lo lhc war. Great Britain, hc said,  is nol fighting the bailies of Servia,  nor of  Belgium, of  Russia  nor of  development of the town and dislrict. From what he knew.of this  district he was convinced that wc! possible  terms.    In   this way  the  were forlunatc in possessing one of  the most promising communities in  farmers   had   the   opportunity   to  greatly improve their stock at thc  thc Dominion, and the only thing to'minimum cost.

FULTONnURDWM(0l  PLUMPINGHEATINGJINSMITHING  Prof. McDonald said thc first essential thing to do was to have all  cattle subjected to the tuberculinc  test. He laid stress upon the danger of nol meeting the Government's  requirements in this regard, for il  had been demonstrated time and  again that the milk from a tubercular cow was certain to spread the  dread disease wherever it is used.  As to feed, the Stock Commissioner said he had found nothing  better than alfalfa, and in a country  such as lhis, where alfalfa can so  readily be grown, he believed our  farmers could ���������������������������'not do better than  make alfalfa their principal fodder  crop. There is hope for any country that can grow alfalfa as readily  as it can be grown here on both the  benchland and the lowland.  There is nothing better for all  kinds of farm stock than alfalfa,  fed intelligently. He believed from  his own'experience that alfalfa-is  the best fodder for horses as well  as for hogs and cattle. In feeding  horses, care should be taken not to.  feed too liberally, and also, not to  feed alfalfa and bran together, as  alfalfa and bran have the same  food value, and both are a condensed food.,  In feeding barley to horses, the  best results are obtainable if the  grain is crushed, not ground.  .   Silos Must Come with Dairying  -��������������������������� Mr. Moore, Superintendent of the  Dominion   Experimental   Farm   at  Agassiz, spoke on the question of  dairying.    Rather than attempt to  reduce the information imparted by  him into a few lines at this time we  are reserving his talk for a future  issue, when it will be given more  fully.   Briefly, however, Mr. Moore  gave to the meeting an account of  his experimental work at Agassiz in  demonstrating  that  dairy  farming  can be made to pay and pay well.  But  with   dairying  the   silo   must  come.   He had found that a silo for  holding 120 tons of silage could be  erected for $180.   Hc was convinced  that there was no way of storing  fodder    for    winter    feeding    at  as little cost or as well as in a silo,  and there was no way of putting up  a  food  so  palatable  for all   farm  stock.      To   make   silage   successfully one must have the young corn  ahtTtlTis can be grown to perfcclioTT  in this seclion.     Mr. Moore told of  the success of his four-year rotation   system,   and   strongly   urged  this in  preference to a three-year  rotation.   Hc would not advice any  man with less than 9 cows to put  up a silo, but with 9 cows or over  there   was   nothing   so   profitable.  ���������������������������Mr. Moore fully endorsed all that  Prof. McDonald  had  said  in  connection  with alfalfa and its food  qualities.      His    experiments   had  proved  to him  lhal there was no  better    fodder-food    than    alfalfa.
