While here  Mr. Skaling, will supervise the  building of an addition to the residential property purchased by Enderby's popular young barrister  and solicitor some months ago,  corner of Mill and Sicamous streets  which is'now underway.  A bridge 20-fcet in width is being built on the Mabel Lake road  crossing the Ashton creek.

We have on exhibition at the  Press office this week a sample  stool of timothy from A. Tomkin-  son's place that shows marvelous  growth.

MORE DAMAGING RAINS  INFERTILE   MARKET  EGGS  The heavy rains which have, prevailed generally throughout the in-  terior.sincc Saturday, are reported  to have done great damage to,_the  grain crops -on/the low -lands,' the  firiefields of wheat and oats, where*  growth has been. too 'heavy this  spring,"have*been laidJlat. by the  pelting-downpour.'. This-iricans all  kinds of complications,'' particularlyVwith'-'the "fallf wheat. ."Many-of  the. alfalfa'men managed to'get the  first cut.under .cover" before-the  last rain set in, .while others, less  ���������������������������fortunate,'have large quantities still  but* and. the second crop coining.  So far as we can learn there has  been little damage to the timothy  arid clover crop.  ���������������������������  Reports from the Northwest are  not as favorable as they were a few  Aveeks, ago; weather conditions being unfavorable for the maturing  crops.  MILITARY  CAMP  WEEKLY���������������������������  The boys in the military camp  established at Vernon arc-publishing a 4-page 7-oolumn wcekly  newspaper, filled with spicy news  of the camp and giving a general  idea of regular camp life. Many of  thc articles and contributions are  particularly characteristic of, camp  life, .'.instance:  "A  emit,  poor  was  Irish  re-  a visit to  'devil' of an  forced to pay  Quarter Master Sergeant Sloan, (he  of the steel blue eye),.as the seat of  his 'civics' we're, well, you know.  The Quarter Master viewed him up  and told him to take a look in the-  glass, remarking 'what a good fit  thev -were.'  "'The coal, allright,' said the  rookie, 'but the pants be too tight'  "'Rubbish,' said the Q. M. S;,  'thev fit like a glove.'  " 'Begorrah, they don't,' says  Paddy, 'they're tighter than my  skin.'  "'How's that?'  enquired  the Q.  M's-"' ��������������������������� ,-     u .  "'I can sit down in my skin, but  I can't sit down in my pants.'"  Said Adam to Eve, after stealing a  kiss, V  And disturbing a fig leaf or two;  "Your clothes 'need adjusting, my  dear."     She replied,  "I don't care Adam if they do!"  Now that the breeding season is  al an end,-says Mr. J. R. Terry, secretary of the B. C., Poultry Association, it is important that all  breeding males should be removed  from Mhe pens,' and either sold,  killed or isolated. It is not true,  he says, that thc hens will not lay  so well when there "is not -a male  present. ~ On the~contrary, in most  instances the presence of male  fowls tends to reduce the egg yield.  Last'year, it ,was estimated that  over $3,000,000'were lost in the  Dominion through "fertile eggs being marketed. -.It, docs not take  a much higher temperature than  70 degrees lo start incubation, and  this temperature is often consider^  ably exceeded in thc grocery store  windows. " As -is often the case,  when fertile-eggs are exposed to  this heat it does not take'long for  incubation to start  Cut down this'loss, by removing  the male bird. Infertile eggs may  become stale and musty when exposed to strong odors, but'they, can  never get into the condition" in  which fertile eggs .arc "often found  when broken by the customer.  " There is another reason why thc  male birds- should, be got rid of at  the.endof the breeding season, and  that-is-because ,it is expensive to.  keep,them three or four mouths before^-disposing o^ them. -If ^marketed early, they/should netya -few  cents a pound' more, "and save," as  well, the fifty or'sixty cents' worlh  of,' feed ��������������������������� which, would "-be^needed'to'  keep them till fall. V"   .._.'"���������������������������  ' These' remarks *** apply' more cs-'  pecially. to the city - lot poultry  breeders,-and to farmers who keep  fowls as a; side-line. The 'commercial -.poultrymun cannot afford  to keep riialc birds' any longer than  is absolutely necessary.V  During the hot -weather, collect  the eggs-at least twice daily, store  them in a,cool, sweet placeman eggshell is very "porous-and eggs will  quickly take' up any foul smells or  odors), when marketing bc'.sure  the.cardboard.fillers are sweet, dry  and clean, and, lastly, market clean  good-sized eggs as often as possible. -  STAND OR  FALL   TOGETHER  "However we may feel about thc  attitude of thc Motherland toward  Canada in days gone .by, let us  realize that in the crisis that hangs  over us_now_the_ injercsts^qt^Can-  ada and the Motherland arTVUne"  and indissoluble.

They are making tracks across the  sandy plains;  For weeks they have forgotten how  to smile,  And   most   of   them   are   full   of  "shooting pains."  Their general is scooting like the  wind:  He  hopes  to   hail  a   Red   Cross  motor 'bus.

GERMAN REPLY DISAPPOINTING  On-Julv 9th Germany's reply to  thc American note was received  at Washington.' The reply reiterates assurance lhal American ships  engaged in legitimate trade will nol  be interfered with nor the lives oT  Americans upon neutral ships be  endangered. II says that German  submarines will be instructed to  allow American passenger, ships-to  pass freely and safely, Germany  entertaining  in   return   the    confi-  Prcsidcnt Wilson is now at work  on a new note to Germany. It is  said there is lo be no surrender of  American rights in thc new note,  and it is assumed that the German  proposals for the immunity of  American -passenger ships not  carrying, contraband will be  jectcd. Just what steps will  taken by the United States as a  suit of Germany's attitude in connection with the sinking of the  Lusitania is mos.l uncertain.  re-  bc  re-  LATEST WAR SUMMARY  Allies Win in Dardanelles  ���������������������������An a despatch from Lemnos via  Athens, the correspondent of lhc  London Daily Chronicle' gives an  account of a big battle for thc-Dar-  danelles- fought last -week,- in  which thc Allies pushed their line  forward five-eighths of a mile..

The  loss of the Souchez cemetery and  adjacent Irenches by the French,  which was indicated in tbe French  ollicial statement of July 12th,  while characterized as 'regrettable'  by Paris, does not, it i.s said, affect  llie principal defenses in this region.

JULY 15, 1915  MORE COWS, NOT CREAMERIES  A movcmenl was noticed in its incipiency this  week in which it was proposed that a creamery  be started at Enderby by a company of local men  as a business proposition.   All of which would be  most commendable if it were a reasonable business proposition.    It is the general opinion of  men who have given  thc matter -thought that  the only successful way to lv.mdlc a creamery ih  this district under lhc present stage of development of thc dislrict would be as a private business proposition:   either   lhis.   or a. centralized  creamery favorably located lo be convenient to  the southern as well as lhc northern sections of  lhe Okanagan   Valley, .and  operated under thc  supervision of lhe Government.   But we doubt il  lhc Endcrby-Mara dislrict has one-half enough  cows lo make a locally owned creamery a success  and it is a question whether a centrally located  government creamery, taking cream from both  north and south, could find milk enough in thc  Okanagan Valley to keep it in operation.  It isn't creameries we need so much as cows.  Even a  small locaL creamery, operated on  thc  Twenty-two million dollars were spent by the  consumers of British Columbia last year for product shipped in from other countries, every dollar  of which could have been kept at home if this  produce, which could be grown here, had been  grown here. This is the statement of Mr. Wm.  E. Scott, deputy minister of agriculture, in an address before the B. C. Consumers' League in the  Labor Temple at Vancouver, a few nights ago.  Hc reviewed the records of thc past few years to  show how even thc farmers had become engrossed in real estate speculation lo the detriment  of their land. This, hc said, was thc reason why  lhc agricultural industry of thc province had not  progressed as it should have.  "Wc can produce thc goods," hc declared, "but  wc must co-operate to market them and then our  problems will be solved." Petty jealousies and  small rivalries should be forgotten and the whole  Province should work as one great body in an  effort to further thc interests of the farmer and  fruit-growers. Thc Department of Agriculture,  hc added, is carrying on. an educational campaign  endeavoring to teach the farmers and fruitgrowers better methods of production and marketing, as well as showing them how to do business along modern lines, and emphasized, the  need of co-operation on the part of the farmers  and thc consumers.  Thc $22;000,()00 which was sent out of the Province last year, Mr. Scott declared, would have  made the difference between good and bad times  had this money been kept in British Columbia.  The value of agricultural products imported into  the Province in 1914 totalled over twenty-five  million dollars, or 83 per cent of the total production of the Province in that time. Thc dairy  imports amounted to over.four million dollars,  or nearly two-thirds of the total consumption of  these commodities. There was consumed over  $7,000,000 worth of dairy, produce in British  Columbia last year. Over a, million dollars'  worth of British Columbia fruits were exported  to thc priarie provinces last year, while at the  same time fruits to the value of $440,000 were  shipped in from the United Stales. Vegetables to  thc amount of $327,000 were brought into the  Pr.ovince from thc states, most of which could  have been grown here. Four million pounds, of  onions were imported, against 442,000 pounds  grown here. Nine million dollars was the value  of the live stock and dressed meat imports. Egg  imports for 1914 amounted lo $1,400,000. Half  a million dozen were brought'from. China and  unloaded at Vancouver at a cost to thc dealers of  only 15 cents per dozen. Dressed poultry imported in thc same year amounted to $341,000. .

Not the regular new mown hay that the weather  clerk has such a pesky disregard for this season,  most economical plan, would require at least the!but a tincture of hay, scientifically cognomened  'Mccago Saliva,'or, in other words, a compressed  compound of alfalfa. This, at least, is the advice  of Dr. Alexander L. Blackwood of Chicago, who  spoke recently before thc American Institute of  Homeopathy on this newest discovery, thc only  draAvback^to^which^is^lhaHt^makes^a-person-so  hungry it is necessary to cat five or six times a  day, and in these limes most of us editors find  enough dillicully to get away from thc money  milk from 200 cows. This means lhat wc must  have say. 300 cows from which lo draw 200  milkers at all seasons. And in addition to the  cows required in thc district, lhc promoters  of lhc companv must have at least $10,000 to  ~prf n iUtf^imfchi nc ryrijui Id i n gr*~c lc:r~a n d^kHiavc  cash lo promptly meet cream payments. A local  creamery could not afford lo pay our milk producers any more per pound for bulter-fat than  Ihe Armstrong creamery is now paying, therefore, till long enough lo eal three���������������������������if wc have it  il i.s not reasonable lo suppose there would beany more cream sent lo an Enderby creamery if  established than is now being sent from' the dislrict lo the Armslrong creamery. And lhis is not  sullicienl to keep a creamery in operation one  week in a month.  More cows, and still more cows, should be thc  aim of the dairymen and mixed farmers of this  dislrict. We cannol have too many of them.  Every cow means more land cleared and the  fuller development of that already cleared. We  have been told repeatedly by successful dairymen  and cattle raisers of olher districts lhat lhc En-  derby-Mara district is ideal for dairying and  mixed farming, and should be the most prosperous .section of Canada���������������������������and will be when wc arc  producing, even in a small measure, what thc district is capable of in this respect.  We should like to sec a creamery in operation  in Enderby. It would mean much to the district.  Bul lhere "is much lo be done before the district  i.s ready for it. In the meantime, our milk producers have a ready market for all the cream  they could produce from three or four times thc  number of cows now milking in lhe. district.  grow  \ seasonable hint to alfalfa growers: The first  1 of alfalfa is often affected by a fungus  disease causing defoliation, if you notice a few  alfalfa leaves "turn yellow or brown (watch bottom leaves) and find Ihem covered with minute  black spots of pin-hole size, put the mower on  and lake oil' what you can get, else llie disease  avi 11 gel all leaves off. The disease generally disappears if timely action is taken.  But there is this feature that is more or less  'heartening,' as lhe war correspondent would say:  Even if "Mccago Saliva" does make you hungry  enough lo eat five or six times a day, the best  results are obtained if you eal less than you did  before taking "Mccago Sativa." And here is the  "Mccago Sativa" paradox: if you arc lean and  thin and have a fit of the blues chronically with  you to steal away thc happiness out of your  heart and have no appetite and arc generally run  down, take "Mecago Saliva" and you will become  so hungry lhal it will make you happy to think  about il, happy to know lhat you can't satisfy  your hunger, and happy to have nothing to eat;  and in your happiness you will forget that you  are lank, lean and all run down, und will be  cheered up and get fat. '  All "Mccago Sativa" talk aside, Dr. Blackwood  declares that the discovery is really wonderful  and will produce a revolution in the medical  world. The chief object of the discovery, according to lhc physician, will be the treatment of  patients who have the blues and are run down.  It cheers them up and brings an appetite.  Thc note sounded by the American Institute of  Homeopathy was not only "Eat less and live  but "Eat less and live more comfortably.'  Remember, this is a home, product, of \ better quality  than the imported; we afford a ready market for locally-  grown alfalfa, and can make, quick delivery in any quan-.  tity from a sack to a ton or carload.

It signals, spurs-us on, rouses us, speaks  to us in thc dark and from far.a*way. It is useful  beyond thc usefulness of thc silent clock.  So with a business that advertises. A shop  or store that sends out its message to us in thc  form of advertisements in our .newspaper service  us far beyond, the shop or store that is silent���������������������������  that must be visited before its service or merchandise can be known.  The shop or store that advertises saves our  time and money. It speaks to us at the right  time, rouses us to attention, and stirs us to action.  We buy more as the result of advertising, and we  buy from advertisers.

Preserve Your Fruit Without Sugar  "The high price of sugar, due to  the war, has possibly led some economical   housewives   to   consider  curtailing   the   quantities   of   fruit  they will put up this year.    As to  thc .general question of economy, it  may be pointed out that while so  many    essential    articles   of   food  have risen in price on account of  the war,  fruit has been, and  will  be as cheap as ever:   There will be  a decided saving, therefore, in using il to replace, as far as possible,  other   more   expensive   foods.     If  should  further be considered  that  war  conditions   have   greatly   increased  the cost of English jams,  so that it will be economy to replace these as far as possible with  home-made jams and  preserves.  With regard to the high price of  sugar, why use sugar at all? The  prevalent idea thai fruit cannot be  kept without the addition of sugar  in the process of canning is quite a  mistake If ..nindc..iiilo_ a., thick  served has to be used, it is quite  possible that sugar prices will be  normal again. There is nothing to  lose, therefore, a gain in the quality  of thc preserves, and a probability  of considerable saving in trying  out the method.  To put up fruits without sugar,  simply prepare them in the ordinary way; see that the jars are perfectly clean, thoroughly scalded  wilh boiling waler, tilled to thc top  and left in them a considerable  time; boil thc rubbers and covers,  and see that thc rubbers are soft  and free from grooves or cracks;  place thc fruit in the jars, fill with  cold water, place them in a boiler  filled with cold water, heat to boiling point. Berries will do if removed when the boiling point is  reached. Large fruits, such as  peaches, pears, plums, cherries and  the like, should get 20 to 30 minutes boiling. A board should be  placed in the bottom of the boiler  to keep the jars from ^ the direct  heat of the stove. Fruit thus prepared will be found excellent for  pies, delicious for eating with  cream, and, generally, superior to  the sugar-syrup preserves. In  properly air-tight jars they will  also keep quite as long.  CANADA NEEDS MORE SHEEP  A French artillery ollicer has calculated lhal whereas in former  wars il was agreed lhat it look a  man's weight in bullets to kill him,  today three tons of metal are  necessary lo kill a soldier.  syrup, sugar acts as an antiseptic,  keeping perfectly sound fruit from  decay even without heat, but, in  lhe quantities ordinarily used in  canning, it lakes absolutely no part  in the preservation of the fruit  from deterioration. Authorities all  agree that fruit put up without  sugar retains its delicate and dis-  l i ii'c t i ve II a voir ~ ve r y imi c h~ be 11 e r,  and is altogether superior to that  put up in the ordinary way. Of  ctuir.sc, sugar will eventually have  lo he used in'preparing the I'ruil  for the table, but much less i.s required to sweeten to taste after  cooking. This is so for a well-  known scientific reason. Our ordinary white granulated i.s a pure  cane sugar, and i.s Ihe sweetest of  all sugars. When cane sugar is  healed in the presence of on acid,  il gradually changes into other  forms of sugar having much less  j sweetening power. One of these,  ; glucose, has only aboul 30 per cent  ! the sweetening power of pure cane  ; sugar.  All fruits contain more or less  acid, and so all mixtures of fruit  and sugar tend to lose some of  Iheir sweetness in the process of  cooking. On this account, il is  much more economical to add thc  sugar after the I'ruil is cooked,  while lhis is, also, the only way in  which the full characlcrislic flavor  of Ihe I'ruil can be retained. Another point worthy of consideration   i.s   lhal   before   fruit   so  pre-  There are, according to the 1914  census, 2,058,045 sheep in Canada,  shearing in-the neighborhood of  14,200,000 pounds of wool. This  number represents but a small  measure of what Canada's resources permit in sheep production  and much less lhan Canada's needs  in wool-and/slice;.* for slaughter.

Why  should Canada be under the necessity of importing its supplies of  wool and mutton when sheep can  undoubtedly be raised wilh profit  not only in connection with mixed  farming but-as well under conditions where cultivation otVthe land  or the grazing pf other animals is  impossible?  These are some of the advantages  given by the live stock branch of  the Department of Agriculture of  the Dominion of sheep raising:  1. The sheep is a dual purpose  animal, producing both wool ancl  mutton.  2. The initial expenditure is  small. Every farmer can well afford thc investment of tho necessary capital in a few sheep.
